Finally some numbers to look at regarding the government health plan.

Finally, some numbers to look at. Here's an informative chart about predicted, actual government-run health care costs for families and individuals that I got in an email from Newt. Don't know how any of you feel about Newt Gingrich, but I really liked his "Real Change" book and recommend it to everyone no matter your political view - it was surprisingly progressive and solutions-oriented, which appeals to me.

6 Month Evaluation of Obama Presidency by "one of Bob Oster's CEO friends"

Another email in my box. A very interesting, and unnerving read...

One of Bob Oster's CEO friends wrote this.

President Obama's Health Care Speech

Well, what are some thoughts out there?

Politics are the devil

Most of us do not want the government in our business. The folks that work hard pay too much in taxes (the folks who make 250k or less per year). Who is to blame? Democrats want to give our money to the poor, Republicans want to give major breaks to the rich. Middle Class are screwed. The real workers in the country have to carry the weight of the rest. I did not like the Bush Administration, and I fear the socialist tendencies of the Democrats in power even more. I think more folks are thinking this way. I am a fan of the fair tax and of allowing purchasing of health insurance across state line (allowing true competition and removing a big lobby from the state legislature). Government involvement in healthcare will only make for more taxes and less healthcare (I actually worked in GB and saw the results of Nationalized Health systems. )

Americans FIRST

For all of the newcomers, the time for the second revolution has begun!
The very first charter of the American Declaration of Independence states that

It was only 600 milligrams of mass that started....

a chain reaction which resulted in an explosion of some 18,000 tons of TNT over Hiroshima on this day 64 years ago. Now what's your opinion?

Rep. Westmoreland are you in favor of Public Option ?

Are you for the people of your district ?

or for the insurance companies, for profit hospitals and big pharma ???

Obama "police had "acted" stupidly"

Oh my, now we're going to have some dialog. Someone, be it the President/Gates or the cop, is going to look bad when this is all said and done.

On establishing relations with Cuba

The liberal side in me thinks it's time to establish relations with Cuba. This self-imposed embargo on all contact with the Cuban people and government has clearly not accomplished anything.

President Obama on Illegal Immigrants and North Korea

Does anyone else find it interesting that the president can, on one hand, turn his back on current immigration laws, and then tell the world regarding North Korea's nuclear ambitions “Rules must be binding,” he said.

MORE Repub Hypocrisy

too much money in the stimulus,,, cut spending -- cut pork barrel spending..
end earmarks -- Obama will tax and spend


Although I listen to these Radio Talk Shows fairly regularly,there is still a void. A void for someone that can really relate to the needs of our country. A real leader that can communicate with the people.One with some common sense about them.I wouldn't care if he was a Democrat or a Republican or even an Independent,just someone who has some common sense and the talent to straighten those Scoundrels out in Washington.Now here is what I have in mind:

To Serve Man"

Forty years ago, a movie narrated by Rod Serling, "To Serve Man" starred Lloyd Bochner and Susan Cummings. It depicted an alien space craft landing on earth. The head alien gave the people of earth a book. With a special beam, all diseases vanished. Crops grew in abundance. Humans grew fat and happy. Soon, the aliens gave humans free trips back to their home planet. The aliens gave humans a choice to stay on the new planet. Flights left daily. Amazingly, no one returned to earth -- except more space ships for transport.

Don't Ask, Don't Tell

I believe the concept of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is a detriment to the military. In my mind, it's a politically expedient "solution" to institutionalized homophobia.

Obama Moves to Let States Set Own Rules on Emissions

OK, this is going to be interesting to watch. Individual states can set their own limits which the automakers claim will force the cost of business and sticker prices to go up. Of course, in the meantime, we are dolling out public money to these automakers (Chrysler & GM thus far) which I suspect will not stop.

How Governor Sarah Palin is superior to Senator Barak Obama in leading the nation into the future

Our beautiful soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is the best future leader for this nation, not Senator Barak Obama. Our beautiful soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is also would be better at leading our nation in the future after a McCain Presidency than Senator Barak Obama would be in leading our nation in the future starting in January 2009. There are great reasons our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin would be a better future leader than Senator Barak Obama. The greatest reason for our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin's is ideology. Our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is conservative in that she is pro life, marriage, guns, low taxes, low government spending, small government, unintrosive government, traditional and judeo Christian values, Bible reading and prayer in our public schools, and military spending.She is also pro free and private enterprize. Senator Barak Obama is a liberal who is anti every thing that I have described that our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is pro about or for. A second reason that our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is superior is because of experience. As a governor she has two years of executive administrative governing experience that Senator Barak Obama does not have. A final reason that our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is superior is because of political accomplishments. When our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin came to office she accomplished 3 major things which are as follows: she showed great leadership in the 3 following areas: government reform, the state budget and the economy, and wise use of natural resources. She reformed government by standing up to the big oil companies by breaking up the monopoly on power and resources. She insisted on competition and basic fairness which ended the control that the oil companies had on the state, and thereby returning control of the state back to the people. She also stood up to the special interest and lobbyist, and produced major ethics reform. She lead well in the state budget by generating a surplus which came about by vetoing a half billion dollars of wasteful spending, ending the abuses of earmark spending by congress, and by getting rid of the private jet, the chef, and the chuffer. Economically under her leadership she brought about the largest private-sector infrastructure project in North American history. She also suspended the state fuel tax, and when oil and gas prices went up dramatically, and filled up the state treasury, she sent a large share of that revenue back where it belonged - directly to the people of Alaska . On natural resources she has shown great leadership by beginning a nearly forty billion dollar natural gas pipeline to help lead America to energy independence. When the last section of the pipeline is laid and its valves are opened, will lead America one step farther away from dependence on dangerous foreign powers that do not have our interests at heart. Senator Barak Obama has done nothing, so please vote John McCain for President and give to our beautiful soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin the opportunity that she deserves leading the nation into the future after a John McCain presidency. When our soon to be Vice President does lead the nation as President after a John McCain presidency,she will be the greatest President that we have ever had. Finally she is smarter than Senator Barak Obama

A Real-Life Horror Flick

Now Showing: I.O.U.S.A - The 30 Minute Version.


Inexperienced Candidate

Saw this in the Wall Street Journal...interesting.

You can’t get a job at McDonalds and become district manager after 143 days of experience. You can’t become chief of surgery after 143 days of experience of being a surgeon. You can’t get a job as a teacher and be the superintendent after 143 days of experience. You can’t join the military and become a colonel after 143 days of experience. You can’t get a job as a reporter and become the nightly news anchor after 143 days of experience. BUT from the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to the time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory committee, he logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. That’s how many days the Senate was actually in session and working. After 143 days of work experience, Obama believes he is ready to be Commander In Chief and the Leader of the Free World. AND, strangely, a large sector of the American public is okay with this and campaigning for him. We wouldn’t accept this in our own line of work, yet some are okay with this for the President of the United States of America. Moreover, based on his dubious personal associations, is it unlikely he would qualify for a top secret clearance in U.S. federal service. Liberals obviously place ideology over experience, qualifications, and patriotism.

The Story of the Waitress, the Homeless Man and Obama

Yesterday's Chicago Tribune carries this "letter" from one A. Hart of Forest Park :

On my way to lunch recently, I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "Vote Obama; I need the money." I laughed. In a restaurant my server had on an "Obama 08" tie. Again I laughed. Just imagine the coincidence. When the bill came, I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Barack-Obama-redistribution-of-wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need—the homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight. I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I've decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful. At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment, I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient deserved money more. I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.

Obama already costing me money

My parents asked someone at the Obama-Biden Campaign to send my 5 year old a campaign pin. It arrived today with .67 postage due!

Barack Obama is not Barack Obama

Barack Obama is not Barack Obama

The presidential campaign is sure to be roiled by the findings of Internet powerhouse and Chicago investigator Andy Martin. Does Obama fear a “dying declaration” by his grandmother? “It’s time for Obama to stop lying and start truth-telling,” Andy says.

Why I'm Proudly voting for the Democrat this time around!

Why I am voting Democrat!

I'm voting Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending MY MONEY than I would. I think when you spread the wealth around it is good for everybody! It's Patriotic!

Obama's campaign

When this election is all over on November 5th, it will do us well to look back on the previous campaign and compare and contrast the differing strategies used by various candidates.

OK this is it, the last debate

So gather around that TV with that popcorn and listen intently for some signal, goof, miscue or whatever that will allow you to make a clear choice.
