...44 percent of HIV patients being treated by the National Health Service were not residents of the United Kingdom but were from southern Africa. In essence, a huge number of AIDS patients in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Swaziland and Lesotho have decided to outsource their health care needs to British taxpayers. Similar trends will manifest themselves here in nothing flat...
...governmentalization of health care is the fastest way to a permanent left-of-center political culture -- one in which elections are always fought on the left's issues and on the left's terms and in which "conservative" parties no longer talk about small government and individual liberty but find themselves retreating to one last pitiful rationale: that they can run the left-wing state more effectively than the left can. Listen to your average British Tory or French Gaullist on the campaign trail pledging to "deliver" government services more "efficiently."

Obama and his minions are hoping to do the same with healthcare. Once a government-run system is put into place, it will be impossible to remove. They look fondly at Continental Europe for a future in which general strikes and car-burnings greet talk of even slowing the growth of government-run programs.
THAT is the object of Obama's policy objectives in general; socialized medicine is the cornerstone. That is why they are so hysterical to get it passed, citing a crisis if it doesn't.
Obama’s policy is to Socialize the United States. The British need to start Tea Partys as we did in the US. Start it across Europe. Take their countries back from the dictators. Obama is now promoting, on Wall Street, to have the world regulate our economies. This, most likely, will be controlled by the UN.
Gee. I wonder if Hussein has any ideas along these same lines???
That’s why I think our long term future is down. Like the dollar and stock market, we will have short temporary bumps but our long term trend is down.
We are being more and more Europeanized each year. And it isn’t just the Democrats. The Republicans love that, too.
When I was a kid, divorce and single mothers were unheard of.
Today, it’s not only commonplace but expected.
Our dollar is declining and our country owes too much to too many
What all these people share is a supersized view of the state, from a make-work gig coordinating the invention of phony-baloney "green jobs" to Soviet-style government-licensed art in support of heroic government programs to government-funded "community organizers" organizing government funding for jailbait bordellos. OK, government-funded child prostitution's a bit of an outlier even for this crowd -- for the moment. But you get the general idea.
"Judge me by the people with whom I surround myself!" Barack Obama, Oct 15, 2008 Presidential debate!
Please check my 2009 tagline.
Mr. Jones, Mr. Sergant and ACORN are where Mr. Obama has chosen to live all his adult life. Even if he wanted to be the bipartisan centrist of Mr. Brooks' fantasies, look at his Rolodex and then figure out just where such a man would estimate the center to be.
I think we are 1/8th through this administration.
We can cut it off at the knees next fall if we throw out Pelosi & Company.
^^^ That’s a big “if” right now. All we are doing is slowing them down. Any thought of turning back this onslaught against our liberties will have to wait until the Nov. 2010 mid-term elections.
They are fully aware of this and are doing their damnedest to get the main pieces of their agenda installed before then.
It’s truly Orwellian how they characterized the Bush administration as assaulting our liberties because of how he dealt with terrorists. Yet what they plan to put into place is 100% targeted at American citizens and represent a true threat to our freedoms for generations to come.
Yes, and add the virus of Islam to our future woes.
I’ve posted on the Telegraph and Daily Mail several times that our cousins across the pond need their own Tea Parties.
Maybe more of us can post in UK papers...after all, our cousins lack experience and need more encouragement, lol.
Boy, wouldn’t it be great if Daniel Hannan won over there?
