  • With Obama, You are Buying a Used Car

    He opened his mouth again... I told you that Obama would not tell you the truth, he would try to sell you a myth. His op-ed piece in the NY Times is just that; a car sales man approach to fooling you. So let's kick the tires and see what kind of junk he is selling you. He discusses the emotion wrenching stories of people with pre-existing conditions who can not get insurance. What our Pitchman in Chief fails to mention is that these people can not get insurance because the cause of treating their underlying conditions is too great....
  • Senators Demand Probe of AIG Bonus Legislation

    Sens. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and David Vitter (R-La.) will later this morning send a letter to Senate Banking Committee leaders demanding that they subpoena all records of bailed-out insurance giant AIG to find out how AIG executive bonuses were given unique and privileged treatment in the Obama stimulus bill. According to a draft of the letter HUMAN EVENTS received last night, DeMint and Vitter say, “…the Senate Banking Committee must subpoena the relevant AIG contracts as well as any other documents that will help determine: (1) What legal obligations did in fact exist to pay these bonuses; (2) What awareness...
  • Obama Gives What the Doctor Did Not Order

    Barack Obama forced a bitter pill down the throats of Americans that the doctor did not order and patients do not want. Obama snuck into the stimulus bill a new system for rationing medical care, and he got Congress to ram it through the House and Senate without reading it. Maybe Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi thought no one would notice what they slipped into H.R.1 since rationing medical care has nothing to do with stimulating the economy. But former New York lieutenant governor Betsy McCaughey sounded the alarm in her article aptly entitled "Ruin Your Health With...

    I am a small business owner. My company is one of the 24,000,000 small businesses that create 50% of the jobs in this country.

  • Fun with President Obama Anagrams (vanity)

    I’ll admit I have way too much time. However feeling a little down over the passage of the “Stimulus“ bill, I decided to cheer myself up a bit. Not being a drinker, my vice was an anagram generator I found on the web. So using only the letters found in “President Obama”, what would be the most satisfying anagram? The exercise resulted in 1000’s of anagrams some of which were spot on and others that were just plain funny. Beware they’re lots of anagrams to be derived from President Obama, and much time to waste. Here’s mine in no particular...

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…unless your institution of higher learning is getting part of the massive (nearly $900-billion and counting) Obama/Reid/Pelosi stimulus proposal. Both versions of the bill, the House version (H.R. 1) that passed on Jan. 28 by a 244-188 margin, without a single Republican vote, and the Senate version (S. 336), which will probably be voted on in the next few days – include language that would “prohibit” modernization, renovation, or repair of facilities: (i) used for sectarian instruction, religious worship, or a school or department of...

    My Way ^ | Jul 27, 5:17 PM (ET) | JIM ABRAMS
    WASHINGTON (AP) - Congress sent President Bush legislation Friday to intensify anti-terror efforts in the U.S., shifting money to high-risk states and cities and expanding screening of air and sea cargo to stave off future Sept. 11-style attacks. The measure carries out major recommendations of the independent 9/11 Commission. The bill, passed by the House on a 371-40 vote, ranks among the top accomplishments of the six-month-old Democratic Congress. The Senate approved the measure late Thursday by 85-8, and the White House said the president would sign the bill. Six years after the Sept. 11 attacks and three years after...
  • Democrats Pass Bill Authorizing Searches Of All U.S. Port Containers. A Union-Expanding Plan?

    January 11, 2007
    Here are the nuts-and-bolts of what I think the Democrats will try to incrementally phase in. The Democrats passed H.R. 1, which requires all containers at U.S. ports be searched. This bill also authorizes the supposed beefing-up of security at U.S. airports. If my memory serves me, Tom Daschle proposed that certain Homeland Security personnel be allowed to unionize. Again, if my memory serves me, this idea was vigorously opposed by the Bush administration under the grounds that since unions inherently have the power to strike, potential future strikes would threaten our national security. Since the Dem-passed bill - H.R....
