"Good morning ladies and gentlemen,
I wanted to take this opportunity to contact regarding the current healthcare reform proposals that are working their way through Congress. I am urging you to vote no on any form of the current proposals. Last August, the citizens of the United States showed up in force to show their displeasure toward a large bloated healthcare reform proposal; and the sentiment has not changed.
The two proposals known as the "Baucus Bill" and the recent House bill unveiled by Speaker Pelosi are completely unacceptable for the following reasons:
1. Both of these are too expensive. Topping out around (or over) $1 Trillion neither of these bills are sustainable. Healthcare legislation in this form cannot be paid for without massive amounts of borrowing, skyrocketing taxes, or cutting funds to other necessary programs. Piling on huge amounts of debt will further weaken the US dollar. Additionally, excessive borrowing is one of the things that bottomed out Wall Street and helped make the current recession worse. The amount of taxes and fees associated with this will cripple the private sector of the economy, especially small businesses and their employees.
2. Too much government control over citizens' healthcare. Both of these bills show that there will literally be a government official involved in your healthcare from cradle to grave. I don't know anyone who wants the government to be a buffer between them and their doctors. I don't know anyone who wants a bureaucrat involved in their treatment plans. Additionally, this level of control by government will stifle medical research for new treatments.
3. This level of government involvement in healthcare will kill the private industry. Health insurance companies simply cannot compete with the government when the government is one making the rules and setting the prices. Doctors will have no negotiating power with the government as the government dictates to the doctors what they will pay. A congresswoman was caught on YouTube stating that a private insurer once said that this will kill their profits, and she gloated that he's "absolutely right." Does Congress not realize that by killing of private insurance companies that millions will be left without jobs? In the end there will be less competition, not more (as is promised.)
Make no mistake. The people of this country do not want this. Please don't think that just because you are not wading through a room full of angry constituents that we have forgotten about this issue; we have not. Please don't buy into the line that Republicans and people like myself don't want any reform. Nothing could be further from the truth.
If this were a matter of insuring the uninsured, that would not be such a big deal. However, the current proposals go far beyond that and do not touch on things that could really make a difference in the cost of healthcare. Things such as tort reform, there are good programs in Texas and Indiana. What about allowing interstate sale of health insurance? What about treating personally purchased health insurance with the same benefits as employer provided health insurance? What about allowing medications in from certain other countries?
Thank you for your time and consideration,"

However, yesterday was different. While Obama was badmouthing Bush he was laying out his own plans to indefinitely imprison people who were threats, could not be tried for past crimes; but needed to be prevented from committing future crimes. That's right, he is taking the evil, despised, constitution hating Bush's plan... a step further.
Obama makes it clear that Bush/Gitmo was illegal because Bush said it was legal based on advice from a legal team, but Obama's plan will be legal because Obama is the one doing it. This whole attitude of "It's OK, it'll work, because I'M the one doing it now" that defines Obama would be funny if he were not actually in charge.
At least the people that Bush imprisoned at Gitmo were captured on a field of battle in the act of going after our troops, or caught in a plot here in the US. Obama's plan is for people to be imprisoned whether they have or are committing/planning an attack or crime. Just like Minority Report.

Sheila Jackson Lee is a poor excuse for a public servant and deserves to be thrown out on her duff. In 2010 if we don't make this a reality we deserve what we have coming.

So how have the Democrats running Congress reacted? They have insulted their constituents that have shown up. The opposing citizenry has been called "a mob", they have been called "astroturf", "villains" and so on.
So how does the President of the United States react and instruct his party? He sets up a snitch email address, so that those who do not agree can be found. He gets the unions involved to show up at town meetings to intimidate the people.
You have members of the Service Employees International Union attacking and beating down TEA Party protesters. You have AFL-CIO members shoving people out of town hall meetings. You have representatives shouting at constituents.
When did the violence start at these meetings? When the Dems sent in the unions, ACORN and their "grassroots" organizations.

But what are the facts? Here's what we know. A woman called 911 and reported that she saw two men, with backpacks breaking into a house. The police arrived and confronted Gates, not knowing who he was. Shortly thereafter Gates was arrested.
Gates asserts that his civil rights were violated. The officer asserts that Gates became beligerent, would not cooperate, and continually referred to the fact that he is a "black man." Based on how many times I've seen Gates on TV pointing out the obvious fact that he's a black man, I'd say he did. Gates also stated that when inside the house after telling the police officer he lived there, he said he went to get his ID and the policeman followed him.
Som let's say that you are a police officer. Let's say you get called to a potential burgularly in progress. Let's say that the first person you see on site starts screaming at you about how he's a black man and you are a racist. Are you going to be suspicious of the person? OK so now the person tells you that they live in that house. Are you just going to take their word for it? So the suspect says they are going to get their ID in just the other rooom. Are you going to think to yourself they may be running? Or getting a gun? And now the suspect gets even more agitated and demands you get out. Are you going to be suspicious?
If you are a cop worthy of your badge, sure you will be.
Keep in mind that none of this has to do with race or black men in America. It has to do with good police procedure. Cops can't afford to take peoples' word for much, or else they end up shot.
So what is it with Gates? Perhaps he believes too much of his own BS. Maybe he takes himself too seriously. Maybe had that race card burning a hole in his pocket, maybe he had a whole deck.
Regardless, Henry Gates is cheapening what the pioneers that fight the REAL civil rights fight. He is crying wolf to the detriment of those who really suffer from racism in this country. Everytime a Henry Gates surfaces playing 52 Race Card Pickup, the rest of America sighs and shakes their heads.

"It's time for America to lead the way, when America begins regulating carbon, China and the others will follow our lead."
My response is, "Like they have on human rights?"
Call your Senator and tell them no on Cap and Trade.
More recently, President Manuel Zelaya, noted leftist and all around lackey of Hugo Chavez and the Castros, was kicked out of office. Honduras has a constitutional ammendment limiting the President to one term. Zelaya's term was to be up in 2010. That was not enough time for President Zelaya's liking. He insisted that the constitution be ammended so he can stay in power. The other branches of government and even Zelaya's own party refused this.
Zelaya basically said, screw you, and moved forward to have referrendum ballots handed out (printed by Hugo Chavez's regime.) The other branches of government used their constitutional powers to have Zelaya removed from office. Zelaya was arrested, taken out of the country and let go.
Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega, Fidel Castro and Barack Obama were very quick to denounce the government of Honduras for this "military coup" (you're one to talk Fidel.) President Obama quickly lost his distaste for "meddling" when a dedicated socialist leftie was on the losing end of the stick.
Here are a few facts about the situation in Honduras:
-Zelaya was attempting to subvert the Constitution of the Honduras.
-The actions taken by the Judicial and Legislative branches and the military were prescribed by the law.
-There was no bloodshed.
-Zelaya was removed by members of his own party; this was not a case of idealogues overthrowing each other.
So why does Obama not like what is going on in Honduras? It is a reminder that his power grabs are being watched and he does not like it when socialists lose. Ask yourself, would Obama meddle if instead of Honduras it were Columbia (with a conservative/capialist President)? I thing not.

He said it's a tax. A big one. One that they are trying to sneak in under false pretenses. Call your Senator. Kill this bill.
The House of Representatives passed the absurd suicide pact known as Cap and Trade. The bill passed with 219 votes. Eight Republicans “reached across the aisle” and apparently flipped the country the bird. If enough pressure is applied this can be killed in the Senate. I have already contacted my Senator you should do the same. This is especially true if you live in a state with a RINO Senator (I’m looking at you Maine.) Also let’s keep pressure on McCain.
If you don’t know what Cap and Trade is, it is essentially a scheme where companies are “capped” on the amount of greenhouse gasses they can emit. If they go over the “cap” then they are fined. Of course the cap will be set to an impossibly low level ensuring that there will be lots of fines. All of this is to fix the fiction of man-made global warming.
The Dems are saying that this will not cost the people anything. President Obama on the other hand was caught in a moment of honesty:
Did you hear that?! He didn’t say prices will go up slightly, he didn’t say it would be a gradual increase. He said “SKYROCKET!”
Get on the horn to your Senator, pronto. If you are in a position to do so contact the RINOs listed at Moonbattery:

Robert Gibbs, in a childish manner similar to most libs, insulted Dick Cheney after Cheney criticized Obama's order to close Gitmo. This is what the Obama administration had to say about legitimate criticism from a former VeeP, "I guess Rush Limbaugh was busy so they trotted out the next most popular member of the Republican cabal,"
Let's see, Obama's policy on Gitmo is to apparently bring enemy combatants to our country, give them access to our liberties and rights (more than we'd get), and give them a nice high profile trial complete with liberal protesters calling for amnesty a la Tookie Williams.
"For seven-plus years, the very perpetrators that the vice president says he's concerned about weren't brought to justice," Gibbs said. Oh really? What do you call being locked up in a prison? Granted liberal panty wastes like you protested and cried enough to get them nice cushy prayer blankets, better food than I eat and lots and lots of Qurans.
Gibbs also stated, "The president has made quite clear that keeping the American people safe and secure is the most serious job that he has each and every day,"
Well that makes me feel better. Based on the level of incompetence we're dealing with here, as evidenced by the economy, I'd feel better if Obama said he was trying to sink the country and convert it to Sharia Law.

Mr. Simon goes on to state that hardcore Republicans are more interested in guns, gays and abortion, while Democrats are more interested in "kitchen table" issues of jobs, healthcare and the environment.
OK, let's throw down the B.S. card on the environment being an issue at all. Polling shows the environment and global warming at the bottom of the heap. Then as if to say that Republican voters, pardon me, hardcore Republican voters are not concerned with jobs and healthcare?
Mr. Simon, we are concerned about jobs and healthcare. At this point I am concerned with what the Obama administration is going to do to ruin jobs and healthcare for everyone. Just because we do not support Obama does not mean we don't want jobs! The point here is that Obama's policies are already losing jobs. Healthcare will soon follow. Obama wants to socialize healthcare, look at how that has worked out in Europe, Cuba and Canada. There are businesses whose sole trade is to get Canadians medical treatment in America, because they cannot get it in Canada!
Finally, this whole thing about not being willing to "reach out" to minorities. False, Republicans are willing to reach out to all people, here's the trick, regardless of race, gender, etc. We refuse to put people into different categories or groups. We are supposed to be a classless society where such things do not matter. We are looking for people who share our ideas and beliefs of financial freedom, smaller government and personal responsibility. The notion that someone does not want these things because they are black is asinine. Period.

Progressives are always the first to the gutter. And they are the quickest to justify and excuse their own racist behavior. I don't know about you, but I would rather be called a chimp than Hitler; and Bush took that for 8 years.

At first all I can say is wow. Then, "This guy is a plant."
But let's look at his message. Julio works at McDonald's (and has been for four years) and wants to either find a better job or get more pay and more benefits than he is currently getting at McDonalds. First and foremost, the trade between the President and Julio about whether Julio is getting healthcare at McDonald's is flat our false. McDonald's most certainly does offer healthcare benefits. Not only do they offer healthcare coverage, they also offer retirement, investing and profit sharing; and college assistance. Granted its not a dream job but I've seen worse.
What is at the heart of Julio's message? Here it is: I work at McDonald's, and have been for four years. There are other people out there who make more money than me and I don't like that. Mr. President I want you to either give me that high paying job I've always dreamed of or make McDonald's pay me more.
Here is my official response:
Julio, I think it is great that you are working and getting educated to improve your life. However, there is a pecking order. As you gain experience and qualifications your income will go up, provided the demand is there. That's what your income is based on. You are selling your skills to the highest bidder. The fewer people who can do your job, and the more places that need that role filled, the more your skills are worth. You can teach anyone how to push grocery carts in about 30 minutes. This job pays around $7 per hour depending on where you are. Compare that with say an electrician journeyman makes about $18 per hour. Why the difference? Because as it stands today, you cannot do an electrician's job, but he can do yours.
The day that a cart pusher or cashier makes the same as a dentist the world will be broken. And once you get your communications career rolling you will feel the same way.
Finally, here's a secret of success. Don't depend on the person in the White House to "give" you a job, opportunity or anything. I recommend that the only thing you ask of the government is to get out of your way.

Pathetically, one laments while explaining that he was at Columbia the same time as the Obamas, "I feel like if I’d been a better person I would have gotten to know them." Still others cry out why are they so perfect and not me? Still others have recurring nightmares, apparently, where they have a chance to interact with Barack and to be inadequate to win the favor of the One.
This is akin to all of the writings we saw in the 1990s about how many women wanted to bang Bill Clinton. It is for certain that, as Rush Limbaugh so aptly pointed out, Barack Obama appears to be the ultimate empty suit or blank slate. People just make him, in their, minds whatever they want him to be. It is also stands to reason that since the left had such a primal hatred for W, HW and the Gipper that they would have an equal and opposite reaction to any moonbat that comes on the scene.
If these worshippers weren't enabling someone to cause such great damage to our nation's rights, economy and national security it would be amusing. They are on even keel with the celebrity worshippers who gaze on celebrity pictures and obssess over whether Britney Spears is pregnant in the line at the supermarket. You can expect to see more articles like in the New York Times as the focus tries to shift to how the Obamas are like "Camelot" and away from the already increase in aggressiveness of other nations, the cost of the "stimulus package" and more.

As seen here, a Florida woman was 18 and pregnant went to an abortion clinic to kill her baby. She was given a drug to dilate her cervix and the doctor did not make it to the office in time. Instead of an abortion Sycloria Williams gave birth to a "live" baby girl. The owner of the clinic promptly cut the umbilical cord and tossed the baby in a bio-hazard bag and right in the trash.
Seems as if everyone is handlin this one with the kid gloves. The local rep for NOW said "It reall disturbed me." And young miss Williams had even give the baby a name. Well Ms. NOW, it really disturbed you? This is what you are about! This is what you define as a fundamental part of being a woman, or pardon me womyn. What difference does it make that the baby fell out of this woman before having its brains sucked out? And Sycloria, you don't name someone that you are out to kill. Did you think up this name before or after you went to have your baby murdered? Why is everyone so shocked about this?
Is it because Williams actually saw the living baby before it was killed. I guess that does make it easier to kill someone you never have to see. I case you don't know the score, that baby was alive and I mean it was alive before Sycloria Williams set foot in that abortion mill. Don't believe me? Go to an OB and check out a 4-D ultrasound. I don't know what it is about these stupid women who view their nether regions as some magical portal that grants life and turns all "unviable tissue" mass that passes through into humans with full rights.
I can't figure out if Williams is so stupid that she didn't know that her baby was a living person until she saw her die or if she is trying to milk this for cash. Either way she's one who deserves to be in a bio-hazard bag. The NOW folks are acting this way because they don't want what they're really about to get out.
I want you to remember though. This is what we voted for. This is the change. Barack Obama opposed "born alive" legislation. Expect more. And everytime this or something like it happens there will be plenty of us to remind you.

Get your bucket ready. Now watch this.
Well looky there. Looks like the beautiful people of Hollywood have found a couple new trends. Being patriotic, loving you country, helping others? Look at them all proud. They remind of a small child that finds an Indian arrowhead and thinks it's something new. They stand there and tell us how they pledge to love their country and help others and so on.
Well welcome aboard, we're glad you can make it! But to most of us, love of country and others means more than your latest hand bag or exotic car. For most of us, patriotism isn't a fad to engage in based on who sits in the Oval Office. Most of us have always support our country. The faux patriotism and love of country shown in this video is as shallow as Demi's facelift is obvious.
The truth is, this is not about love of country or patriotism. This is about love of someone, Barack Obama. These celebritards didn't give a damn about this country when Bush (either one) was in office, they didn't care about this country when Reagan was in office and they would not care if it were John McCain in the White House instead of Barack.
They preach about the country and "others" but they tip their hand at the end when they pledge to be a servant to Barack Obama. The truth is that if they did not have feelings of patriotism, caring for others, and sacrifice before, they don't have them now. These feelings are likely to prove fleeting.
But hey, if those celebrities are really all about love of country and helping, then good. Glad to see you could finally make it, but we got started without you. No offense.

President Bush made it a point to be gracious, respectful and non-partisan. This is the new tone that Bush entered office on. What really caught my eye was the tone of the comment section of the article. I am very familiar with trolls and moronic people leaving comments on the web. But for some reason it really hit me hard. What I saw was a gathering of the minds of the most un-educated, un-appreciative, simple-minded, angry people in one place. My thought was, you know, these people deserve the President and government they are getting.
From day one President Bush has gotten the shaft and viewed with disdain; disrespected more than any President. It all started from the myth of the "stolen" 2000 election, which in fact Al Gore tried to steal. It only went downhill from there.
Let's look at the circumstances of Bush's presidency.
On day one, President Bush inherited a recession from the outgoing Clinton presidency (aptly called the Bush recession by the media and liberals.) Bush fixed this recession. Less than a year into his Presidency our nation was attacked.
I know that Democrats, liberals and the media do not like to talk about 9/11 other than the kooks who say Bush planned it or otherwise blame him. The reason they do not like to talk about it is because President Bush handled 9/11 and its aftermath in exceptional manner.
At this time the US economy is in dire straits. Let's remember that President Bush pulled us out of an earlier recession with his tax cuts and deregulation. The US economy survived for years despite thousands of attempts to talk it down and stifle it to have something to lay on Bush. The truth is, what killed the economy stems from oil prices and Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac.
The price of oil was too high for the American people to pay. President Bush tried several times to increase our supply of oil and make us less dependent on foreign sources. Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac (aka the DNC piggy bank) forced banks to loan money to people that could not make the payments then would not let them collect. This collapsed the banking industry. Bush also tried to fix Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac only to be rebuffed. It's not that Bush has no blame here. Simply put he should have fought harder for ANWR, investigations into Fannie Mae, etc. But these problems are at the feet of the Democrats.
In the national security realm President Bush has done the impossible. After we were attacked on 9/11 Bush was charged with preventing further attacks. The expectation from Bush's opponents was that there were to be no more attacks. In their mind they were setting him up for failure. The realist expectation was that there would be more attacks. Period. The table set for President Bush by the opposing two parties (Democrats and Media) was anything less than no more attacks is failure.
Basically, it was a game of "Keep the country safe" but:
-You can't secure our borders from people entering illegally
-You can't send the armed forces after the enemy
-You can't put enemy combatants in prison
-You can't interrogate enemy combatants with anything more than cupcakes and puppies
-You can't intercept phone calls originating from outside the US
-France has to agree with your every decision
-No civilians can be killed by action of anyone including the enemy
-No US soldiers can be put in harms way. Ever.
-US intelligence agencies cannot gather intel on suspicious people inside the country.
Make no misake, the President was set up to fail. And he did not. But he has been dragged through the mud for 8 years and will likely be dragged through the mud for a few more.
Mr. President, I think I speak for those of us with a brain when I say, you have done well and you will be missed.

Basically, the Obamas asked to stay in the Blair House, which is the the guest house for the White House. The Obamas were denied their request because the house was already booked.
I caught clips of Randi Rhodes griping and complaining about this last week. The gist of her statements are ,who is George W. Bush to deny anything to Barack Obama? Who is so important that they would not be bumped out of the way of Barack Obama? As it turns out it was former Australian Prime Minister John Howard (referred to as 'disgraced' former Prime Minister...)
John Howard is a guest of this country, you do not treat your guests like that.
But more importantly, Randi uses a lot of 'who' there. That's the point, to the liberals it is all about status. Barack Obama is a more important person (to them) than John Howard. I mean afterall, Barack Obama is the messiah to these people. There is no equality here, and it surely does not matter that President George W. Bush entered into a commitment with John Howard. All things are to bend to the will of Barack Obama.
Randi Rhodes, once again demonstrating the elitist attitudes of the left.

They recently had "Armageddon Week" on the History Channel, complete with Nostradamus, Edward Cayce, the Bible Code and everything. And don't you know, everything, was tied into global warming. The Bible Code end of the world - global warming. What was Nostradamus talking about? Global Warming. Why do the Mayans predict the world is going to end in 2012? If you guessed GLOBAL F'N WARMING you win a cigar!
But here's the thing. The History Channel is all about, well, history. And some of the history they reviewed debunks the global warming hoax out of hand. While reviewing all of the predicted doom and gloom; famine, drought, floods all the things a good end of the world scenario needs we revisited past instances of famine, drought, floods, etc. And guess what? All of these things have happened before.
That's right boys and girls. For the billions of years that this planet has been here there have been floods, droughts, ice ages, global warming, earthquakes, entire species of animals dying off. And guess what? Not a single SUV in sight. No smoke stacks, no power plants, no Leer Jets, no PCs, no Macs, no incandescent light bulbs. Nothing but nature. And some cases there were no humans around for any of this.
The day is coming, and it is already starting, when people are going to be sick and tired of being preached to by the global warming crowd. And global warming is going to jump the shark.

Funny, nobody gave a crap about the violence when it was a one-sided affair that involved Hamas launching rockets as Israeli civilians; and during a "ceasefire" no less. Where was the UN? Where was ANSWER?
For all the good it is going to do, I am going to play mythbusters.
MYTH: Israel is the oppressive aggressor.
TRUTH: Israel has always shown great restraint (and are now) when dealing with the Palestinians. This last example showed Israel enduring daily rocket attacks with no counter-attack during the latest ceasefire. The fact that Israel defends itself and counterattacks does not back them the aggressor. There is nothing wrong with defending yourself. And there is nothing wrong with defending yourself with overwhelming force.
MYTH: Israel is targeting civilians; committing genocide.
TRUTH: Israel, like the US, take great pains to avoid civilian casualties. The Palestinians on the other hand not only aim specifically at Israeli civilians, they also deliberately put their own civilians in the path Israeli counter attacks. Hence, Hamas launches rockets from school yards and hospitals. Have noticed that Israel is using more and more "smart" weapons, bombs that are smaller and smaller but more and more accurate? This is because they would rather drop a 500 lb bomb directly on an enemy's head as opposed to a 5000 lb bomb on a large area. Both will get the job done, but the smaller bomb lessens civilian deaths. Contrast this with Hamas, they really don't care where their bombs go other than Israel. If Israel's goal was to wipe out the Palestinians, it would have been done 25 years ago. It does not take laser guided bombs to wipe out a population (see Dresden, Germany.)
MYTH: Israel is a racist society.
TRUTH: How many Jews do you see welcome in Gaza? In the West Bank? Or how about anywhere within 300 miles of Israel? On the other hand, Israel will accept anyone who does not wish to kill them. There are several Arab-Israelis who work, live and thrive in Israel. They are fully integrated into the society, the only problem is those darn rockets. Of course, these individuals are viewed with contempt in the rest of the Arab world. Were we talking about the US, they would be called "Sell Outs" or "Uncle Toms."
Regardless, this is not coming to an end soon. Hamas will spend the next weeks or days get trounced all over Gaza. They will continue to put their women and children in the line of fire so they can be paraded around for the cameras. The Moonbats will continue to protest Israel for engaging in the crime of self defense. The UN will continue to posture. Then after completely mopping the floor with Hamas, Israel will sign a ceasefire. Finally, Hamas after suffering combat casualties of 250 to one, gaining no ground, strategic or tactical advantage will declare victory and start shelling Israel again. What a joke.
