Über Libertarian Wayne Root Shoots Holes In Obamacare

leave a comment »

Wayne Allyn Root, Author of The Conscience of a Libertarian, talks with Neil Cavuto of Fox News calling for tort reform to fix healthcare as opposed to government run healthcare. Neil calls him mean. Is that fair, unfair or tongue in cheek? Wayne brings up good points than cost the taxpayer nothing, and take the power away from the lawyers I mean politicians. Same thing. Anyway, enjoy. It’s refreshing to see a real libertarian on TV or anywhere else.

Woman Tired Of Seeing Obama, Sells TVs

leave a comment »

78 year old Deloris Nissen of Carroll Iowa got tired of seeing Obama on TV so she sold both her TVs. Sounds reasonable. The 4th estate has become the 4th branch of government and Obama’s personal and professional PR firm. Good for Mrs. Nissen. I wonder if she is related to Judy?

The Newest Turncoat and Member Of The Democrat Party

leave a comment »

The Finocchio and Sfacime from South Carolina has, one more time, proven himself to be a turncoat in tough times. Shown here is Chuckie Cheese Schumer with his new protege. When will the party of Lincoln divest itself of it’s dead wood and rotting corpses? South Carolina produces some real political asses.

Lindsey Graham, tu sei proveno sfacime, and you are.

The Fight For State Sovereignty: Nebraska is next

leave a comment »

Nebraskan Legislators want to pass a resolution that asserts Nebraska’s state sovereignty. The State Sovereignty Movement is an effort by the states to push back on an over reaching, overbearing and moreover a socialist government that is continually trying to control more and more of people’s lives and direct what states can and cannot do. We have not seen such vigor since the first Civil War. I wish Iowa legislators would do such, but Governor Granstahl and his lackeys are too busy licking the hand from Washington that feeds them. It’s 1857 boys, and the day is coming should the Mountebank in Chief continue on his socialist way.

RHETORIC V. REALITY: HEALTH CARE BY ORWELL

RHETORIC V. REALITY: HEALTH CARE BY ORWELL

By DICK MORRIS & EILEEN MCGANN

Published in the New York Post on July 23, 2009

President Obama’s rhetoric last night summoned the memory of “1984,” George Orwell’s novel of a nightmarish future — where the slogan of the rulers is “War is peace; freedom is slavery; ignorance is strength.”


The president assures us that he will cut health-care spending…by adding $1 trillion to health-care spending.

He says that “health-care decisions will not be made by government”…while he sets up a new Federal Health Board to tell doctors what treatments they can offer and to whom and under what circumstances.

Obama told the media, “I will free doctors to make good health-care decisions”…by telling the physicians what to do.

When the president says he guarantees the “same coverage” to people who like their current health-insurance policies, he means that their current HMOs, insurers and doctors will be the ones to implement the protocols and instructions the government hands down to them — not that we’ll have our current freedom of decision-making.

When he blandly assures us that we will “stop paying for things that don’t make us healthier,” he really means that his Federal Health Board will overrule your doctor and stop him from using his own best judgment in your treatment.

The president will “get the politics out of health care” by putting it under government control.

Obama says that he will not “add to the deficit” to fund health care. But the bill reported out by Rep. Charlie Rangel’s Ways and Means Committee leaves $550 billion unfunded.

The president says that he’ll identify savings that will reduce the need for more taxes — even though the Congressional Budget Office refuses to say that his “savings” will actually work and warns that the bill will really be added to the deficit.

He repeatedly tells us that he’ll cut health-care spending. What he means is that he will cut doctors’ incomes and will turn down patients — particularly the elderly — when they seek medical care that his bureaucrats disapprove of.

And he ignores that cutting incomes in the medical field will reduce the number of doctors and force further rationing of care.

The president opines that he will replace the most “expensive care” with the “best care” by empowering government officials who have never met you to substitute their judgment for that of your doctor, who has examined you thoroughly.

When Obama laments that “14,000 people lose their insurance every day,” he is referring to the job losses that his own failed efforts to end the recession have permitted.

He warns that health-care costs are gobbling up money that employers should use to raise wages and worker pay — yet the plans he backs would require employers to pay 8 percent of their payroll as a tax or provide insurance to their workers.

The Obama plan highlights greater preventive care — but, at the same time, cuts medical incomes and so will cut the number of doctors who might provide it.

The stimulus package, in the Gospel According to Barack, was “designed” to work over the next two years. But at the time, he demanded immediate passage to “jump-start the economy” — something that clearly did not happen.

Medicare and Medicaid are “driving the deficit” even as he increased the amount of red ink by at least $800 billion in six months with little, if any, increase in the cost of either program.

He says he “expects” banks to repay their TARP money. In fact, they’re lining up around the block to do so — but the Treasury will only permit a handful of them to do so.

In summary, Obama’s health program will promote “lower cost and more choice” by increasing spending by $1 trillion, telling patients what care they’re permitted to have, and limiting their access to quality care.

Orwell’s heirs should sue for violation of copyright.


Dick Morris say it better than most here. Thanks Dick, Eileen and…

In Minnesota, Go For a Swim, Get Capped By A Cop

leave a comment »

A plain clothes sheriff’s deputy shot an unarmed man who was returning from a swim. According to witnesses, Deputy Todd Waldron just freaked out. May be it’s all those hours he works, as he’s also a part time officer at Gustavus College. May be he’s just nuts. Whatever the case, he shot someone dead who was unarmed, and he didn’t identify himself as an officer. Tyler Heilman was shot while getting up with his hands up, after he realized Todd Waldron was cop because of the badge on his belt. Of course now we’ll see the police going back to Tyler’s kindergarten records to show what a criminal he was…
You may notice of late I have been a little hard on cops. I want to tell you my grandfather and uncle were cops (A different breed from today’s officers) and I dated a NYC for several years. I don’t have anything in particular against them, but considering the position they have, I think we need to hold them to a higher standard.
I also think that cops can be tools for politicians to raise money and enforce a politician’s will. What probably irks me is the lack of critical thinking and independence on the part of officers when confronted with having to do ridiculous things (quotas and other non-sense). I also have a boner for cops that excuse poor behavior in other cops or even cover it up. My message to the boys in blue is, it’s not you versus us at all. You work for us, we give you the authority you have. Respect that, and the fact that most of us are just trying to get along, and not everyone is breaking some law somewhere. If you have fellow officers who are like bored Pit Bulls, get rid of them. Cops should be like Labrador Retrievers.
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
