  • From Republicans: Silence Of The Lambs

    Vanity
    The Republicans, as usual, are too clever to speak up and become embroiled in the George Zimmerman controversy. The Attorney General of the United States stirs up racial dissension at the NAACP meeting. Republicans obviously think it would just be too messy to remind him about the rule of law. Never mind the tiny facts that George Zimmerman was found not guilty by a jury, and that he was cleared of all racial motivation by extensive state, local, AND federal investigations. What does the life and liberty of one individual matter in the big scheme of things? So Republicans will...
  • Why Is Obama Lecturing Us? What Did We Do?

    Who was Obama lecturing? We just went through a terrorism situation. Not only did he refuse to use the word "terrorist", he gave us a long lecture about "not jumping to conclusions" about motives, religion, immigration, ethnicity. We were attacked and he lectured us about being good Americans. He even made it sound like we should not assume the terrorists are guilty. But Obama must know even more than us that they are terrorists, muslims, and most certainly guilty. I'm really wondering, when he said we must ask how people raised here and living among us can hate us and...

    Are we really so beaten down by the left that we are going to accept their blatant racist attacks? Barack Obama received near 100% of the black vote to win the last election. Yet we actually are being made to feel guilty because we got "too many" white voters. And, the DNC chair is bragging that they have a House caucus dominated by minorities and women. Meanwhile, Susan Rice lied to the whole country, and for mentioning this we are being called racists. They WON the election and they still are attacking us as racists. Even though they got lots...

    A relative who cared for her elderly mother, just deceased, is dealing with the various medical bills from the hospital and doctors. She sees on all of the statements now, a check off to be marked by the provider, certifying something to the effect that the treatment was "consistent with and appropriate for, the age of the patient". She says she never saw those before in all her years of caring for her mother. Is this part of Obamacare beginning to limit medical care for our elderly?

    When I contemplated this happening earlier today, I resolved not to go crazy if it did. The best I could do is to remember how horrible it was to see Bill Clinton reelected in 1996. He was corrupt, evil, divisive. Many forget he spoke to a black church and tied Bob Dole to church bombings. He also launched cruise missiles (ineffectively) at Al Queda camps for political reasons within hours of his latest attack on Ken Starr being badly received. He was a bad president and a bad man. He was impeached deservedly after that election and it was all...

    Obama is saying Romney's "47%" remarks are the "exact opposite" of Obama's "bitter clingers" statement - and Obama is right! Romney was criticizing liberals and their dependents. Obama criticized God fearing working people. How can Obama benefit from this? He can't. If Romney had dissed the working middle class, now that would be news. But this attack on Romney comes from the left, it identifies Obama as a leftist. Obama is defending the people who are dependent, non working. By spreading Romney's remarks in the media, remarks which most people will agree with, Obama might as well have produced an...

But isn't the sheriff's irresponsibility extending to jeopardizing the case and handing Loughner a variety of defenses? First of all, the Sheriff keeps saying Loughner is a seriously disturbed individual. That alone is giving credence to an insanity defense. Next, Dupnick is stating that such disturbed individuals...

    Reading some chatter on websites that the cap seems to have slowed the oil spill to a trickle since being reinstalled. To my surprise, the view is very different than before. Previously, the oil rising around the cap was a gusher and you couldn't see the cap unless BP put a fan in place so they could examine the equipment by blowing the oil cloud back. Right now, one side of the cap shows really no oil plume, the opposite side has one stream going up but still doesn't obscure the cap. Maybe they achieved a better fit when they...

Why not just cover everyone until they die, as a "child"? I guess that is the plan. can you imagine the fortune...

    Listening to a Fox Radio "News" Break at 5 PM Eastern Time, Shepard Smith refers to the health care end of life provision and states matter of factly the provision spawned "ridiculous references to death panels". In the next breath he reports the provision has been dropped from at least one version of the bill. Well, guess the objections weren't so "ridiculous" then, huh? Just remember Fox News is not a reliable friend of conservatives, certainly Shepard Smith is not. Also makes you wonder about White House attacks on Fox, when even Fox can commit outright bias in favor of...

    What will democrats hear from their constituents during the August recess? Here is an email report from a dear friend who just attended a town meeting in Medford, NJ, with Congressman John Adler. It gives reason for hope, make sure to repeat this throughout the land this Summer: "Today, we did a little something to deal with healthcare for us all. Jim and I went to the John Adler meeting in Medford, as Marilyn told us of it. We went and man, people were furious and unbelievably outraged,,,huge, I mean, HUGE pushback. Amen!

    Everything I ever needed to Know about Obama I learned from his comments on Professor Gates. tell me if I missed anything: 1 He viewed it from a polarizing racial perspective based on stereotypes. 2 He showed favoritism to minority democrat interest groups and to his friend. 3 He demonstrated elitism - the police are "stupid" the Harvard professor of course is not. 4 He jumped to immediate left wing conclusions without knowing the facts. 5 Perhaps most significantly, he couldn't resist getting the presidency (government) involved in even the most minor incident, from which he drew wildly exaggerated lessons...

    Why aren't our conservative "leaders" pointing out that a person can now get up in the morning and go to work for a government owned industry, he may have to buy his car from the government, the car loan, his house loan, all his loans may be from a government owned bank, that means he may have to buy his house from the government. If Obama has his way, when the worker gets sick his doctor will be the government. For a GM or Chrysler worker, the government may now control virtually every aspect of his or her life. Even...

    Vanity Question
    Commercials against Hilary Care were absolutely essential for its defeat. Now, Obama is talking about pushing through a huge national healthcare bill by August! The stories I read make it clear the plan will be a frightening blow to our health and economy. Do we know if anyone is working on an ad campaign to expose the obvious dangers of socialized medicine? We need the House dems from conservative districts to be scared away from this awful nonsense. My wife, a cancer survivor, literally keeps telling me they are going to kill her. Apoparently she has heard reports of how...
