Quote of the Day

"In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution." --Thomas Jefferson

ALWAYS keep in mind that the Constitution doesn't so much grant what the government may do as tell us what it MAY NOT do. It seems that a lot of our so called "representatives" in Washington have forgotten this fact...I think we should remind them of it in the next election.

Finally! A Politician that has really read the Constitution, and wants to conform to it ! You people in Vermont should consider giving Mr. Maslack a promotion and buck him up to the Congress or Senate, where he may be able to help the rest of the Nation regain it's roots.

Vermont State Rep. Fred Maslack has read the Second Amendment to the
U.S. Constitution as well as Vermont 's own Constitution very
carefully, and his strict interpretation of these documents is
popping some eyeballs in New England and elsewhere. Maslack
recently proposed a bill to register non-gun-owners and require them
to pay a $500 fee to the state. Thus Vermont would become the first
state to require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and
assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun. Maslack
read the "militia" phrase of the Second Amendment as not only
affirming the right of the individual citizen to bear arms, but as a
clear mandate to do so. He believes that universal gun ownership was
advocated by the Framers of the Constitution as an antidote to a
"monopoly of force" by the government as well as criminals

Vermont's constitution states explicitly that "the people have a
right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the State" and
those persons who "conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms" shall
be required to "pay such equivalent."
Clearly, says Maslack,
Vermonters have a constitutional obligation to arm themselves so
that they are capable of responding to "any situation that may
arise". Under the bill, adults who choose not to own a firearm
would be required to register their name, address, Social Security
Number, and driver's license number with the state. "There is a
legitimate government interest in knowing who is prepared to defend
the state should they be asked to do so". Maslack says Vermont
already boasts a high rate of gun ownership along with the least
restrictive laws of any state - it's currently the only state that
allows a citizen to carry a concealed firearm without a permit. This
combination of plenty of guns and few laws regulating them has
resulted in a crime rate that is the third lowest in the nation.

This makes sense! There is no reason why gun owners should have to
pay taxes to support police protection for people not wanting to own
guns. Let them contribute their fair share and pay their own way.

Mr. Maslack IS more historically accurate... ...many citizens opted to pay a "war tax", for someone to fight in their place, in both the Spanish-American and Civil Wars, rather than be conscripted themselves to fight for the US.

If you are not going to serve "in the Militia", then you SHOULD have to pay a "tax" to "hire someone to take your place", and "be armed for the State" on your behalf, if you choose not to serve.

Quotes of the Day

"Much of what government does is based on the premise that people can't do things for themselves. So government must do it for them. More often than not, the result is a ham-handed, bumbling, one-size-fits-all approach that leaves the intended beneficiaries worse off. Of course, this resulting failure is never blamed on the political approach -- on the contrary, failure is taken to mean the government solution was not extravagant enough." --columnist John Stossel

"What is most frightening about the political left is that they seem to have no sense of the tragedy of the human condition. All problems seem to them to be due to other people not being as wise or as noble as they are." --economist Thomas Sowell

A Term Limit with BITE

Here's an idea whose time may just have come; in North Carolina, congressional candidate Will Breazeale has made a $250,000 promise to the voters.

He has put up $250,000.00 of his own money into what he calls a "bonded term limit". The money is held out of his control by a third party (bonding company); if Mr. Breazeale holds office for more than three terms, the money is given to a charity(s) to be named by the company.

"I see [bonded term limits] bringing about the largest power shift in this country since we became a country," Breazeale in a telephone interview shortly after the press conference. "This will be the standard one day. If you don't put up personal net worth, then you will not be elected."

I wish I resided in N.C. just so I could work for this guy to get elected...now if I could find I need to find a candidate like him here in IN !

Our nation needs to return to the citizen legislatures expected by our Founders and retire the career politicians and their "overlord" type of politics, it is up to us, the Electorate, to ensure that this occurs, and soon. Tyranny inevitably follows any other course taken.

Oldest Profession?

A surgeon, and architect and an economist were traveling together, and fell to discussing which of them had the oldest profession.

The surgeon says “I think I can claim priority there. If you refer to the book of Genesis, it tells how God took one of Adam’s ribs to create Eve. So God was in fact the first surgeon.”

Then the architect says “Ah, but before he did that he created the heaven and the earth from chaos. That was the work of an architect.”

And the economist says “And who created chaos ?”

Quote of the Day

"Any veteran lending their name to promote the leftist propaganda of global warming and climate change, in an effort to control more of the wealth created in the U.S. economy, through cap-and-tax type policies, is a traitor to the oath he or she took to defend the Constitution of our great nation. If someone is advocating for our government to make statutory or regulatory changes in policy or enter into treaties that violate our Constitution, and they have taken an oath to uphold and protect that same document, then they are traitors to that oath." --Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (RPA)

To which I can only add: AMEN.

Veterans are like any other group; they have divergent opinions on almost everything, and that's as it should be, we became veterans to defend that ability to disagree, even with each other, BUT when there is a move to subvert our freedoms; indeed a move to join in treaties or policies inimical to our Constitution, it becomes every veterans duty to resist those actions with all the vigor at their disposal.

Congressman Metcalfe is being attacked by votevets.org, which is part of a Leftist coalition called Operation Free, which is tied to and funded by George Soros's group Moveon.org. I like to think think a large part of the members of votevets.org aren't even aware of these ties to Soros; to think otherwise is to admit that so many would knowingly and willingly betray their solemn oath's, and that is something I would rather not believe. The enemy within is deadlier than the enemy outside; the worse when that enemy has taken, and is abrogating, the same oath you took and believe in.

Sometime in life, we've all known someone like this....

1 Trevor, my assistant programmer, can always be found
2 hard at work in his cubicle. Trevor works independently, without
3 wasting company time talking to colleagues. Trevor never
4 thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always
5 finishes given assignments on time. Often he takes extended
6 measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping
7 coffee breaks. Trevor is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no
8 vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound
9 knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that Trevor can be
10 classed as a high-calibre employee, the type that cannot be
11 dispensed with. Consequently, I truly recommend that Trevor be
12 promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be
13 executed as soon as possible.

The idiot was standing over my shoulder while I wrote this report.
Kindly re-read only the odd numbered lines.

Get Your Hands Off My PTSD

A good friend of Beth's is the host of a great military group blog called A Soldiers Perspective. C.J. is an career soldier in the Army with years of combat experience in SO; as a result of his (some horrific, as any combat veteran can attest !) experiences, he suffers from PTSD (who WOULDN'T?)... The fact that he is dealing with this condition should be NOBODIES business but his own and his immediate family; if he discusses it with anyone else in the spirit of attempting to educate them about this condition; it should be lauded as an honorably unselfish act of educating that person above and beyond the call of duty.

The Army has come a long way of de-stigmatizing this condition in it's members, treating it as a reasonable and TREATABLE mental response to the extremely unreasonable and traumatizing events that occur on an almost daily in combat situations. HOWEVER, it seems that some segments of our society have become so pacifistic that they recoil in horror to think that anyone might have to cope with such a condition; imagining that people suffering from the condition are all open powder-kegs just waiting to be set off with the merest hint of anxiety.

Here are the basic facts:

1) The school district where C.J. sends his children go to school recently decided that they were going to institute a uniform dress policy in their district.

2) The authorities of the district held a Parents meeting to "get input from the parents on the new policy.

3) Said meeting, it turned out, was NOT to "gather input", but rather an authoritarian statement that:

A. the new policy would be instituted at the start of the next semester.

B. that the policy wasn't merely a set guideline policy, ( I.E. "students would be required to wear blue slacks and white shirts") but a policy that the students would be required to wear a school uniform only available at a certain supplier (at a cost of somewhere in the neighborhood of $300.00 per student for a couple of complete sets of uniforms).

Now C.J. is NOT adverse to the idea of a uniform policy, he wears his own uniform proudly every single working day of his life; what he objected to was being told that, with less than 40 days notice, he would be obligated to lay out $600 to $700 in clothing to equip all of his children with said uniforms to meet the new criteria. Believing the meeting to be a two way exchange of information; he spoke up, requesting that the implementation of the policy be delayed until the start of the next school year so as to allow the many military families with children attendant at the school the time to budget for the new expense. He was told that that "just wasn't feasible", and of course he wanted to know WHY that it wasn't -- loudly the second or third time he was rebuffed from being given an answer. His objections were supported by a large portion of the parents present and the meeting ended in somewhat of a tense atmosphere, to say the least...
If only that was the end of the story... the next day C.J.'s children were called out of class and questioned about "that man that had made such a fuss" and it was discovered that C.J. wrote for a blog; the officials read the blog and discovered that C.J. had been diagnosed with P.T.S.D., whereupon said officials grew mightily afraid, and have started proceedings to have C.J. legally barred from entering the school without having security escort him, and called his commanding officer to inform him that they consider him a "danger", possibly even to his own children...a great fuss to make because he reasonably objected to being dictated to by an unelected bunch of bureaucratic "education experts" issuing their DIKTATS to the unwashed minions over which they feel they have authority.

The fact that they contacted C.J.'s military commanders and informed them that "he has P.T.S.D. and therefore is unstable/dangerous" is just so far beyond the pale in intruding on C.J's privacy as to be in the stratosphere. To possibly try to threaten his career or even his parenting role over a school policy disagreement is out to the orbit of Saturn in it's ignorance and pettiness.

That, in this case, these ultra metro-sexual, "sheepdog" fearing, patchouli smelling, (presumably)Democrat voting assholes are members of the so-called "professional educators" cadre (who are presumably highly educated to know better) makes that attitude even more offensive to any correct thinking human being.

C.J. is contacting a lawyer to see what options he might have, but it's too bad he has to go to that extent, and I hope there are enough of us out there that, like me, will be willing to help support him in whatever manner we can in this tempest in a school teapot. The issues involved are a microcosm of what is wrong in our nation today; overreaching mini-tsars trying to dictate our freedom to dissent and our privacy...always "for our own good" of course, and in a "WE'RE the PROFESSIONALS, so we know what's best" manner.

A man and his wife walked into a dentist's office.

The man said to the dentist, 'Doc, I'm in one heck of a
hurry. I have two buddies sitting out in my car waiting for us to go
play golf, so forget about the anaesthetic, just pull the tooth, and
be done with it. We have a 10:00 AM tee time at the best golf course in
town and it's 9:30 already. I don't have time to wait for the
anesthetic to work!'

The dentist thought to himself, 'My goodness, this is
surely a very brave man asking to have his tooth pulled without using
anything to kill the pain.'

So the dentist asks him, 'which tooth is it sir?

The man turned to his wife and said, 'Open your mouth
honey and show him.....'

Old Butch

John was in the fertilized egg business.

He had several hundred young layers (hens), called 'pullets,'
and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs.

He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.

This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to his roosters.

Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance,which rooster was performing.

Now, he could sit on the porch
and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.

John's favorite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen,
but this morning he noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all!

When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, could run for cover.

To John's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring.

He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.

John was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair
and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece Prize,
but they also awarded him the Pullets surprise as well.

Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making.

Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.

Vote carefully next year, the bells are not always audible.

Subject: Wrong one

The train was quite crowded, and a U. S. Marine walked the entire length looking for a seat. There seemed to be one next to a well-dressed middle-aged French woman, but when he got there he saw it was taken by the woman's poodle.

The war-weary Marine asked, "Ma'am, may I have that seat?"

The French woman sniffed and said to no one in particular, "Americans are so rude.. My little Fifi is using that seat."

The Marine walked the entire train again, but the only seat available was under that dog. "Please, Ma'am. May I sit down? I'm very tired."

She snorted, "Not only are you Americans rude, you are also arrogant!"

This time the Marine didn't say a word; he just picked up the little dog, tossed it out the train window and sat down.

The woman shrieked, "Someone must defend my honor! Put this American in his place!"

An English gentleman sitting nearby spoke up. "Sir, you Americans seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You hold the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your autos on the wrong side of the road. And now, sir, you seem to have thrown the wrong bitch out the window.."

The Story of Adam & Eve's Pets

Adam and Eve said, 'Lord, when we were in the garden, you walked with us every day. Now we do not see you any more. We are lonesome here, and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us.'

And God said, I will create a companion for you that will be with you and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourselves.'

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam and Eve.
And it was a good animal
And God was pleased.

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve and he wagged his tail

And Adam said, 'Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal.'

And God said, 'I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you,

his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG.'


And Dog lived with Adam and Eve and was a companion to them and loved them.

And they were comforted

And God was pleased.

And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that an angel came to the Lord and said, 'Lord, Adam and Eve have become filled with pride. They strut and preen like peacocks and they believe they are worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught them that they are loved, but perhaps too well.'

And God said, I will create for them a companion who will be with them and who will see them as they are. The companion will remind them of their limitations, so they will know that they are not always worthy of adoration.'

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam and Eve.

And Cat would not obey them. And when Adam and Eve gazed into Cat's eyes, they were reminded that they were not the supreme beings.

And Adam and Eve learned humility.

And they were greatly improved.

And God was pleased . . . . .

And Dog was happy. . . .

And Cat didn't give a shit one way or the other....

Common Sense in a world gone insane

One of my Web buddies, Jack Keel, sent me this afternoon. The dig on Obama is just for fun, but the five sentences below the picture SHOULD be repeated every day in every classroom in America, right along side the Pledge of Allegiance.


These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read. This is one paragraph that should be in every book in every school room in every city in every state in our great Union ... Our educators should make a lesson plan on this one statement and instill these words in the minds of all students.

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation..

5. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

Left Think CRAP

From the un-FRICKINbelievable file comes this story from the Loony Left coast...seems an apt manager has told all the residents of the complex that they must take down any flag that they may be displaying, including Old Glory, or face eviction.

Seems that Management is afraid that "someone might be offended" by the display of any flag, whether it's the American flag, a military branch flag, or even just a sports team; and the ban extends even to those flags or even decals of flags displayed on vehicles.

The person Leftist PC/Multiculturist Whiner responsible for making the decision refuses to make any comments on the matter to the press.

I don't know about you, but anyone telling me I have to remove the American and PGR flags proudly waving from the back of my motorcycle would best watch out lest they get run over by said motorcycle when I ride off ignoring their BullCrap.


Here are some of my fellow PGR riders...I would dare that PC Whining piece of crap masquerading as a human being tell us as a group to remove our flags from our bikes. In fact, I think it might be apropos for any PGR unit in the area to hold a military memorial service in front of the Oaks Apartment rental office in Albany, Oregon.

The sensory overload of that much patriotism in open view would surely cause severe apoplexy in said PCWPOC, and, for the record,I personally think that would be a GOOD thing.

Transparency ?

In a representational Republic such as the United States was founded to be, it is imperative that the general population has at least some idea what their Representatives are proposing in the legislature.

Bringing 1000+ page bills up for a vote before even the representatives, much less their constituents, have a chance to study them should never be the order of the day.

Yet, Congress is fighting even the least opportunity to give those affected by upcoming legislation to even have a chance to read the proposals before they may be enacted into law.

Reps. Brian Baird, D-Wash., and Greg Walden, R-Ore., are circulating a petition among House lawmakers that would force all pending legislation be posted on the internet at least 72-hours before a vote on the legislation could take place.
I believe that this should be the bare minimum.

We are SUPPOSED to be a participatory form of government, but such participation is impossible if the contents of proposed legislation is unavailable prior to a vote; thus giving over great power to those in positions of leadership in both the House and the Senate.

This is not a political Party issue, at least it shouldn't be, unless those in the current majority Party don't want input from the minority Party or their constituents.... if that is the case, then I fear that we have taken one long step away from being a Republic and heading towards a tyrannical form of government our Founders would certainly not recognize.

Resident Obama ran on the statement that his would be "the most open Administration ever", it's time for him to back that statement up with action.
72 hours of reflection is not too much to ask when it is the life of every being in this country that will be affected.

It behooves all Patriots to take heed of what is going on, for the day may be coming sooner that we would like to believe to have to use the reset button of the Second. Amendment.

Health Care Reform

One of the mantras continually coming from the Left side of the aisle about how EVIL the Big Health Insurers are is how they continually refuse to pay for procedures of their claimants to maximize their profits...

Two things to remember:

1) The HIGHEST net profit made by ANY Insurance company in 2007 was 3%...name any other business that operates on that low a profit margin. (most grocery stores operate on at least a 4-5% margin, if they want to stay in business)
The MSM and the Leftists trying to take control of our health care system always report the profit made by a particular company, but unless that figure is expressed as NET PROFIT MARGIN (ie, that profit that is left after total expenses,expressed as a percentage of funds risked) that figure can highly misleading. Saying company X "made $3Billion in profits" means nothing unless you also consider how much company X RISKED in that same time span to earn that profit. Remember that Government does not EARN one red penny itself, it can only tax YOU to get revenue to spend; and if it falls short of it's needed operating capital (UNLIKE an Insurance company, which would be forced out of business BY LAW if it's on hand assets fall below a mandated level), it simply raises the taxes you are required to turn over for it's use.

2) Just WHICH insurance entity carrier refused payment for treatment the greatest amount? According to the AMA, in 2008 it was Medicare...by a margin of almost DOUBLE (1.7%) of ALL other major Insurance entities COMBINED:


So the next time you hear about a politician pontificate about a "heartless Insurance Company", remember that to be TRULY "heartless"; you need the power of Government to REALLY achieve it.

The New "Battle Hymn of the Republic"

Thanks to Iowahawk , we have the new, improved version of the Battle Hymn of the Republic as presented by the Obamatrons..after all the old version just didn't laud the magnificence that is Teh ONE in the proper way:

The Battle Hymn of the Obamatons

Barack Hussein Obama is the coming of the Lord!

He has taken o’er the banks where all the cap’t’list wealth is stored,

He runs all the auto comp’nies save those bastards out at Ford!

His lies keep rolling on!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Barack Obama is our ruler!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

His lies keep rolling on!

I have seen Him at the podium ‘fore a thousand sycophants,

They have built Him fine Greek columns lit with million wattage lamps,

He creates a carbon footprint like a herd of elephants:

Hypocrisy marches on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Barack Obama is our ruler!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Hypocrisy marches on.

I have heard fiery gospel of his bully Chief of Staff,

"If you criticize my boss then you shall surely feel my wrath!

You’ll be branded as a racist, and your home be burnt to ash.

The Godhead marches on."

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Barack Obama is our ruler!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

The Godhead marches on.

He started his career out thinking “ACORN’s really sweet!”

He gave them lots of campaign funds, but He doesn’t know they cheat!

They abet tax fraud and hookers but don’t lay that at his feet!

Barack is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Barack Obama is our ruler!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Barack is marching on.

When He speaks His soaring Voice is like the dawning of the day,

Though His mighty TelePrompTer tells Him all the words to say,

He offers many promises, and may get to them someday,

His voice keeps droning on.


Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Barack Obama is our ruler!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

His voice keeps droning on.

Will Obama veto the health care bill?

The following is an analysis of what the Health Care Bill as it currently stands contains. Even if your not a fan of Newt Gingrich, you have to at least consider the points he makes in this opinion piece.

The Democrats are proposing that government gains at least some measure of control over what amounts to 1/6th of our national economy;and in a manner that will affect EVERY single Citizen (and probably most Illegals too), it behooves every single one of us to become informed and keep an eye on what is being proposed and the probable effects of those proposals.

Don't take ANYONE'S word on it;do your own homework and use some common sense when you think about what the probable results of any particular legislation will be.

Will President Obama Veto Health Reform?
by Newt Gingrich

With the Senate Finance Committee poised to pass health care legislation, the final contours of the bill that could come out of Congress are starting to come into focus. The bill will contain new taxes on the middle class. It will add to the deficit. And it will put government bureaucrats between Americans and their doctors, among other things.

So it's not too early to ask the obvious question: Will President Obama veto health care reform?
It's worth asking because so many of the costs to taxpayers the President has repeatedly promised won't be in the legislation are, and so many of the benefits are not.
What follows is a list, in no particular order, of the contradictions between the President's promises and the reality of Democratic health care reform. Add them up and it's hard to see how President Obama doesn't reject the bill Congress seems likely to send him.

Contradiction #1: From a Promise Not to Raise Taxes
on the Middle Class to $2 Billion in "Penalties"
As far back as the campaign, President Obama promised he wouldn't raise taxes on Americans making less than $250,000.

But an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) found that at least 71 percent of the individual mandate penalties in Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus's (D-MT) bill would be paid by Americans earning less than $250,000. In fact, the nonpartisan analysis found that, of the $2.8 billion in penalties the bill imposes on those who do not purchase health insurance, a full $2 billion will be paid by taxpayers earning less than $120,000 for a family of four.

The Senate Finance bill also levies $215 billion in new taxes on employers and health insurers for offering high-value insurance benefits, which will surely be passed onto all consumers.

Republicans tried to ensure that President Obama's words would not ring hollow by offering an amendment that said: "This amendment provides that no tax, fee or penalty imposed by this legislation shall be applied to any individual earning less than $200,000 per year or any couple earning less than $250,000 per year." Democrats defeated it.

Contradiction #2: From a Promise to Reject a Bill That "Adds One
Dime to the Deficit" to $239 Billion Added to the Deficit
In his speech to the Joint Session of Congress, the President was adamant: "I will not sign [a bill] if it adds one dime to the deficit, now or in the future, period."

And yet House bill H.R. 3200 will increase the deficit by an amazing $239 billion over the next decade.

The Baucus bill pretends to be deficit neutral but it's an accounting gimmick. "It pays for itself" by forcing a new $250-300 billion unfunded mandate on the states. And it doesn't include nearly $300 billion that will be spent to adjust physician payments in Medicare.

Contradiction #3: From a Promise That "If You Like Your Current Plan
You Can Keep It" to Half of Medicare Advantage Benefits Being Cut
In his speech to the Joint Session of Congress last month and elsewhere, the President has reassured nervous Americans that if they like their current coverage, his reform will let them keep it.

Unless you happen to have Medicare Advantage, that is.

Or employer provided insurance.

The director of the nonpartisan CBO testified before the Senate that, under the Senate bill, the benefits of seniors under Medicare Advantage would be cut in half.

And an analysis of the House bill found that 88 million people will lose their current insurance under government health care.

What's more, both bills would disrupt vision care for more than 100 million Americans.

Contradiction #4: From "If You Like Your Current Doctor
You Can Keep Your Doctor" to Squeezing Doctors and
Hospitals Until They Reduce Patient Access
Here's what three doctors who are former chairmen of the American Medical Association (AMA) say about the cuts to Medicare in Democratic health reform bills:

"Now the government is saying that additional Medicare cuts are coming-thus forcing doctors to try and make up the difference in volume, by seeing more patients. If you ask patients about this, they understand that more volume means less time with the doctor. That's something that all patients and doctors should oppose. In time, it will be difficult to find a physician."

And here's what the executive director of the Mayo Clinic said: "We will have to violate our values in order to stay in business and reduce our access to government patients."

Contradiction #5: From a Promise that No Government Bureaucrat
Will Stand Between Patients and Doctors to a Medicare
Commission With the Power to Deny Treatment
Just this week, in a speech to doctors gathered in the White House Rose Garden, President Obama reiterated his pledge not to let a Washington bureaucrat get between a patient and their doctor.

But the Senate Baucus bill creates an "Independent Medicare Commission" with the ability to deny benefits to the elderly or the disabled based on a government calculation of the costs versus the benefits.

Contradiction #6: From a Promise to "Slow the Growth of Health
Care Costs For Our Families" to a New Tax on Hearing Aids,
Wheel Chairs and Breakthrough Drugs
In his speech to the Joint Session of Congress, the President pledged to "slow the growth of health care costs for our families, our businesses and our government."

But the Senate bill contains a tax on medical technology companies and drug makers that will raise the cost to American families for thousands of drugs and devices, including pacemakers, eyeglasses, hearing aids and powered wheelchairs.

Contradiction #7: From a Promise that Health Care Reform Will
Fix the Economy to New Taxes on Small Businesses
One of President Obama's main rationales for health care reform is that it is necessary for economic recovery.

Working against this promise is the provision in the Senate bill that will tax small businesses - the engine of American economic growth and job creation - that can't afford to purchase health insurance for their employees. It's hard to see how the economy recovers when small businesses are prevented from hiring new workers by a new government tax.

Contradiction #8: From Insuring All Americans to Leaving 25 Million Uninsured
One of President Obama's three basic goals for health care reform is to provide insurance to those who don't currently have it.

That's the promise. The reality? The CBO has determined that the Senate bill will leave about 25 million nonelderly Americans uninsured.

I could go on, but I think the point is made. The differences between what Americans have been promised from health care reform and what they are getting go beyond the usual give and take of Washington.

A Congress controlled by the President's party is producing health care legislation that blatantly contradicts his most basic, often repeated, promises.

What will the President do? Will President Obama veto health care reform?

Stay tuned.

Circle Flies

A cowboy from Texas attends a social function
where Barack Obama is trying to gather more support for his Health
Once he discovers the cowboy is from President Bush's
home area, he starts to belittle him by talking in a southern
drawl and single syllable words.
As he was doing that, he kept swatting at some flies
that were buzzing around his head.. The cowboy says, "Y'all havin'
some problem with them circle flies?"
Obama stopped talking and said, "Well, yes, if that's
what they're called, but I've never heard of circle flies."
"Well Sir," the cowboy replies, "circle flies hang
around ranches. They're called circle flies because they're almost
always found circling around the back end of a horse."
"Oh," Obama replies as he goes back to rambling.
But, a moment later he stops and bluntly asks, "Are you calling
me a horse's ass?"
"No, Sir," the cowboy replies, "I have too much
respect for the citizens of this country to call their President
a horse's ass."
"That's a good thing," Obama responds and begins
rambling on once more.
After a long pause, the cowboy, in his best Texas
drawl says, "Hard to fool them flies, though."

Deja Vu ?

From the "we've been here before" file:

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. ... Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the 'new, wonderful good society' which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean 'more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.'" --Roman statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)

A Well-Planned Retirement

From The London Times:

Outside England 's Bristol Zoo there is a parking lot
for 150 cars and 8 buses. For 25 years, its
parking fees were managed by a very pleasant
attendant. The fees were 1 for cars ($1.40),
5 for busses (about $7).

Then, one day, after 25 solid years of never missing
a day of work, he just didn't show up; so the Zoo
Management called the City Council and asked it
to send them another parking agent.

The Council did some research and replied that the
parking lot was the Zoo's own responsibility.
The Zoo advised the Council that the attendant was
a City employee.
The City Council responded that the lot attendant
had never been on the City payroll.

Meanwhile, sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain

(or some such scenario), is a man who'd apparently had a
ticket machine installed completely on his own; and then
had simply begun to show up every day, commencing
to collect and keep the parking fees, estimated at about
$560 per day -- for 25 years.
Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over
$7 million dollars!


And no one even knows his name.

Stimulus Payment --Obamnomics

Subject: Economic Stimulus Payment

Sometime this year, we taxpayers may again receive an Economic Stimulus payment.

This is a very exciting new program. I will explain it using the Q and A format:

Q. What is an Economic Stimulus payment?
A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q. Where will the government get this money?
A. From taxpayers.

Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?
A. Only a smidgen.

Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
A. The plan is that you will use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.

Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ?
A. Shut up.

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the US economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

• If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China .
• If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.
• If you purchase a computer, it will go to India .
• If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico , Honduras
and Guatemala .
• If you buy a car, it will go to Japan .
• If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .
• If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.

Instead, keep the money in America by:

1 spending it at yard sales, or
2 going to ball games, or
3 spending it on prostitutes, or
4 beer or
5 tattoos.

(These are the only American businesses still operating in the US .)
I'm going to go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that I met at a yard sale, and drink beer! Yay!

Maybe Obamanomics ISN'T so bad!

Let's get this straight,

Obama's health care plan will be written by a committee whose head says he doesn't understand it.

Passed by a Congress that hasn't read it, and whose members will be exempt from it.

Signed by a President who smokes.

Funded by a Treasury chief who did not pay his taxes.

Overseen by a surgeon general who is obese.

And financed by a country that is broke.

Now, what could POSSIBLY go wrong?

Today in History

In 1941, Adolf Hitler declared in a speech in Berlin that Russia had been "broken" and would "never rise again."

In 1990, East and West Germany reunite after 45 years.

In 1863, expressing gratitude for a pivotal Union Army victory at Gettysburg, President Abraham Lincoln announces that the nation will celebrate an official Thanksgiving holiday on November 26, 1863.
(The speech, which was actually written by Secretary of State William Seward, declared that the fourth Thursday of every November thereafter would be considered an official U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving.)

In 1917 Congress passed the War Revenue Act. Under the 1917 act, a taxpayer with an income of only $40,000 was subject to a 16 percent tax rate, while one who earned $1.5 million faced a rate of 67 percent. While only five percent of the U.S. population was required to pay taxes, U.S. tax revenue increased from $809 million in 1917 to a whopping $3.6 billion the following year. By the time World War I ended in 1918, income tax revenue had funded a full one-third of the cost of the war effort.

(Congress realized what a Golden Goose they had in the WRA and never looked back.)

The White Mans Burden

Mostly Cajun has a great post up that flies in the face of the apologies the Pretender in Chief has made to the world recently about how badly the developed nations, notably Britain, treated the world in the past, and the effect that had on those nations.

Kipling had it right in his poem The White Mans Burden. As bad as conditions indeed may have been in the subjugated areas in the Colonial Era, those conditions WERE ultimately vastly improved upon by the presence/actions of those Colonists.

Double Standard, Much?

Bobby Earl has a good Op-Ed piece demonstrating the blatant double standards applied in our political system today.

Rep. Joe Wilson shouted "You Lie!" during an Obama address to Congress on health care (yes, it was rude; but demonstratively true), and in spite of a sincere apology, Rep. Wilson is being brought up for censure; meanwhile Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) states on the Congressional record that Republicans want Americans to "die quickly" if they get sick. In his "apology", Grayson states that he is sorry that "he and other Democrats didn't do enough to prevent their death" to some of those that have recently died and their families. Some apology - NOT!

WHEN will we see a censure motion against Grayson? (here's an offer for you; if you believe that there WILL be a movement for censure placed against Grayson, I have a great bridge I'd love to sell to you, cheap)

JUST ONCE, I would like to see parity in the treatment of politicians of both Parties when they do idiotic things...
