Even Worse Than Carter

When Barry was elected, my hope was that he would be no worse than Carter. He has far exceeded Carter in trying to destroy the US.

I have tried hard this year to be tolerant of liberals. But, I have lost that battle. They are the enemy of all I believe. They have destroyed this country, not just for me, but for my grand kids. I want nothing to do with anyone that voted for Obama. OK, tying them over an anthill would be fun.

Now for Pelosi, strip her and leave her in the Routt National Forest during prime mosquito season.


Victor Davis Hanson writes:

At some point, Obama may conclude that the vast President jet, the opulence of the Presidency, the power and influence at his fingertips, all that national wealth and more were not created by Acorn, community organizing, Michelle’s legal brilliance, Axelrod’s savvy advice, or Emanuel’s crassness, or by claiming that doctors needlessly take out tonsils and amputate limbs, or in general by sonorous tones promising to give someone vast amounts of someone else’s money, but rather through preserving a climate of freedom, respect for continuity and tradition, and government non-intrusion into the market place that encourage people to try to go into business and retain some of their profits — as recompense for getting up on Saturday morning at 6AM to get down to open the dry cleaning store, or borrowing one’s net worth to open a new stationary outlet, or staying late till 7PM to do a crown, or gambling that the new $500,000 crane will pay for itself in 5 years, or going under someone’s house on a Sunday to unclog the toilet.

These are the most interesting of times: we are witnessing nothing less than an attempt in just 10 months to reinvent the United States at home and abroad into something it never was, led by someone who, the more soothing, comforting, and melodic his speech-making, the more bruising, cut-throat, and ruthless the act that follows.

So it’s like we’re living in the late Roman Republic…

Here’s An Idea of What To Do With KSM

Bret Stevens is one sharp cookie. He writes the Journal's "Global View" column on foreign affairs every week. The Journal’s offices overlook Ground Zero, which gives them a perspective on that event that the rest of us don’t have. His solution of what to do with KSM et. al. fits my demented mind perfectly.

I have long thought it would be a good idea to bring 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his accomplices to lower Manhattan. In my concept, the men would be taken by helicopter to a height of about 1,000 feet over Ground Zero and pushed out the door, so that they, too, could experience what so many of their victims did in the awful final flickering seconds of their lives.

And since al Qaeda intended the attacks as a spectacle for the benefit of its would-be recruits, I'd give al Jazeera the exclusive TV rights.

If you want to read the whole article, Two Ground Zero’s.

Improved Health Care?

New Improved Health Care is proposed and is it good?  A  government task force said most women do not need a  mammogram until they are in their 50's and then only every two years.  It also stated that doctor's do not need to show patients how to do self-breast exams because they do no good.  That was the news that came out of China a couple of years ago. 

Now Barack Obama is president and has the Obamacare program which will help everyone, cost everyone less money and give everyone better care.  I take exception to that on a very personal basis - I had breast cancer on 2002.  For years I had mammograms and I had three biopsies that were benign.  Prior to the 2002 mammogram I thought about canceling  because nothing had ever been found, but decided to go ahead with the exam.  If I had been required to wait because it wasn't “my year” for the exam, I don't know if I would be alive today.  The cancer, although small, had metastasized into my first lymph node.  Another year could have been deadly.

The American Cancer Society and the Susan Komen Foundation are against abandoning annual exams.  Why aren't women up in arms against yet another Obama stupid decision?

On a different health care note :  Obama says that his improved healthcare will cut fraud and waste.  I have trouble with this statement.  I have heard about "fraud & waste" ever since Medicare and Medicaid were put into effect by Democrats.  My questions is why doesn't he just cut this fraud and waste since he seems to know how to do it - if his Obamacare doesn't pass, then will he  let "fraud & waste" continue!


Don opines: If national health care was a good deal, Congress would not have exempted themselves from it.
