Harry Reid may be my new hero.
But I’m not really sure yet – its complicated. The word is that his version of the obamacare bill is going to allow states to opt out. The little weasel is taking this approach to offset resistance in Nevada so he can get re-elected. “We’ve spent countless hours over the last few days in consultation with senators who’ve shown a genuine desire to reform the | Read More »
Don’t Forget Cal 10!
If you live out in California’s 10th Congressional District, east of the Bay, remember there is a special election today for Congress. Democratic nominee John Garamendi has run an all out, down the line liberal campaign, including a hearty embrace of the most liberal health care reforms. The district has been reliably Democratic for over a decade, and voted over 60% for Obama, but Republicans do | Read More »
Housecall to DC and the Capitol Steps-a Call to Action Update
For a last-minute call to action, this is snowballing I first posted about this Saturday, and since then it has grown in size to the point it needs an update. Michelle Malkin picked up on the event and boosted it hard via Twitter and her site. Mark Levin is now on board, and will be there as he announced today on his radio show. His | Read More »

The Black Hole of Heath Care Reform-call to action
From the diaries by Erick via The Right Scoop Michelle Bachmann was interviewed by Hannity (not sure what date because the FNC Hannity site is a mess, but I assume Friday Oct. 30), during the interview Hannity describes the “Government Option” as a “funnel that’ll eventually suck everybody into it”. Bachmann says the bill will “…collapse private insurance so that everyone will fold into a | Read More »
As Obama and the Democrat Gone Wild Congress are determined at all costs and against all public opposition, to forcibly impose National Healthcare on every American, the nation’s Capitol has been writing legislation at a prolific pace. A few days ago, Harry Reid’s Senate Healthcare wonder bill, came in at a weighty 1,500 pages. Not to be outdone, Nancy Pelosi felt she could craft a | Read More »
Dear Congressman: You’re either lying, or you’re an idiot. Because we’re not.
A friend just wrote the following blistering letter to his and my ostensibly pro-life, “Blue Dog” Democrat Congressman, Charlie Wilson, OH 6. I recommend reading right through the end, but once you start I think you’ll find it hard not to read all the way through. Enjoy… Dear Congressman Wilson, I received your letter this past Friday and was frankly disappointed at the way that | Read More »
One Nation Under Pink Unicorn Riding a Rainbow
In PURR we Trust. Dennis Prager over at FrontPageMag does a great job explaining what I was trying to say here about how the vast majority of the Left are simply parishioners in the pew desperately seeking meaning from the 10% or so doing the preaching from the pulpit. It’s alliteration Wednesday! How is one to rationally explain the Democrats’ belief that the government taking | Read More »
Well…when you say it like THAT Thomas…
…it really does sound bad. Thomas Sowell has been on fire recently, probably because few people understand the depth of the threat Obama poses to the American experiment as well as he does. Just one year ago, would you have believed that an unelected government official, not even a Cabinet member confirmed by the Senate but simply one of the many “czars” appointed by the | Read More »
The Public Option Option
“the best way to move forward is to include a public option with the opt-out provision for states.” -Harry Reid The opt-out provision…So I guess this means states have a choice to have socialized health care or not. Does this seem odd to anyone else? IT ALREADY EXISTS! If a state wants a government health care plan then they do it. Look at TennCare in | Read More »
The US fiscal future fortold by a California Democrat?
I keep saying it, as goes California… h/t Levin Strange things sometimes happen in California, that pretty much goes without saying. As someone currently residing in the state, I see my share, believe that. One thing I’m not often treated to out here is a Democrat in state government actually telling the truth (without spin) about the fiscal swirl the state is currently taking around | Read More »
Kansas Legislators Seek to Nullify National Health Care
This Tuesday, 10-27-09, Kansas State Senator Mary Pilcher-Cook and other state legislators will be announcing a “Kansas Health Care Freedom Amendment” – a proposal for a state constitutional amendment that would effectively nullify national health care in that state. (h/t Jeff Matthews) Already, four states are considering similar amendments, and more than 15 may see them introduced in the 2010 legislative session. Writes Senator Pilcher-Cook: | Read More »
2010 and 2012 may mean nothing if this isn’t stopped now
At all costs Every once in a while you hear something on the radio that absolutely slaps you in the face with an “Oh my God” moment. For months we’ve been getting into what the leftists and statists have been trying to do to our country, and what will become of us as a nation if they succeed. Listening to the F. Lee Levin show | Read More »
Mrs. Speaker, Call the Health Care Vote
CongressDaily is reporting that the House Leadership thinks they have 218 votes for ObamaCare. Speaker Pelosi herself said she “definitely” has 218 votes. Call the vote on ObamaCare NOW Mrs. Speaker, if you have the votes, call the vote. But you will not call the vote, because you don’t have the votes. And you will not call the vote anytime soon. Here is one report | Read More »
Fun with Honest Budgeting
Dana Milbank of the Washington Post is funny, in his rendition of Majority Leader Reid and his quest to put $250 billion in ObamaCare off-budget, adding it to the deficit. It really is worth the read, here are his first paragraphs: “I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits, either now or in the future — period,” President Obama told | Read More »
