Frum yawns

 The last person I remember heaping such objurgation upon his fellows was David Brock.   It appears Frum is on that same road to perdition.  Maybe Soros is funding his Huffington Post clone,  Since Frum now promotes a Republican Party "that is less overtly religious, less negligent with policy(?), and less polarizing on social issues ...  such issues as abortion,"  it's not clear what New Majority he thinks he's heading for?  It sure as hell won't be Republicans. Not his version. 

I think Frum is who my basic training DI kept mistaking the guys in my platoon for,  "some communist sent here to fu--kup the United States Army"

Let's Kill Grammy

Mr. Kennedy Votes 'Aye'
Liberals Need To Admit That Socialized Medicine
Means Letting Old People Die To Save Money
Where "letting" is too nice a word

My brain probably works like yours.  There's some stuff that's crystal clear, and other stuff that you have difficulty getting a handle on.  Often times it's stuff in the latter category that, once grasped,  have the most profound effect on you, like eleven year-old girls becoming 12 year-olds.   Government Health care is a category I for me however.  Almost from the moment Ted Kennedy celebrated his Medicare victory, by swigging a quart of  Cutty-Sark (the family owned brand), and sexually assaulting a few aides, I was stewing.  

I intuitively knew (or maybe because I'd read Make Room! Make Room!) that once government gains control of  anything, that thing will grow out of control  In health care's case it was, and is, manifestly clear that the day must come when Teddy had to kill people who lived too long, having become a drain on the State.

That day is today. And where's Teddy?  The jar holding his pickled, disease ridden brain is kept in the Senate cloak room. It's retrieved when Democrats need that 60th vote.  RWN will take it from here.
Over the past week or so, I've noticed several liberal blogs trying to insinuate that it's some crazy conspiracy or myth that old people will be allowed to die to save money under the health care plan being considered in Congress.

Just to be clear, that is EXACTLY what will happen -- and it's what happens right now in nations with socialized medicine around the globe. You may think waiting months to get life saving operations is a bug in socialized medicine, but to bureaucrats, it's a feature? Why? Because while people are waiting for the operation, some of them die, thereby saving the cost of the operation -- and it's ever so much easier for the politicians. Although they can -- and sometimes do -- say, "Sorry, but we're denying you this operation that will save your life," the easy way to do it is just to delay, delay, delay. Then, there wasn't some mean old bureaucrat denying somebody's sweet, old grandmother the operation she needed to live on, it was just how it played out. She needed to get the operation in a month, but the first open appointment was six months later. What a stroke of bad luck!

Even Barack Obama has tacitly alluded to this on more than one occasion. Remember this?

A real test?

Tom Mann sent me this Global Warming Test,  which I cynically viewed as another attempt by Al Gore's legion of asshat true believer elementary school  teachers to make me feel bad about driving to the grocery store without carpooling.  As a consequence of taking my first ever such test,  based an some actual science, I missed the first two, but aced the last eight. With these credentials I plan to apply for the job of climate expert on any of the networks who so far haven't been able to find one. NBC- here I come!

Our Criminal Media

"coup-installed leaders"

OCOTAL, Nicaragua — The U.S. government said Tuesday it has revoked the diplomatic visas of four Honduran officials, stepping up pressure on coup-installed leaders who insist they can resist international demands to restore the ousted president.

I happened to be crawling around on the lounge floor when this Obama sponsored garbage hit the airwaves.  Had my tape recorder on, thank heavens, and recorded what I think is the only proper response.

"coup-installed leaders"

What the hell is wrong with our press? That is our editorializing in the lead sentence of a supposed "News" article.

I swear, I feel like finding those reporters and beating the hell out of them for lying to the nation and the world.

Its crap like this that is destroying our republic. Who holds these people accountable for their lies? How can we impose consequences on them?

Its as if they WANT our democracy and republic to dissolve into a mass of confusion with propaganda an lies masking any real truth. This is treason.

Short of threatening them or actually killing a few pour encourager les autres (both of which are serious criminal offenses), I know of no other thing to stop this destruction of the public via deliberate slanting and misinformation.

What can we do other than fume and watch the nation dissolve in the acid lies of the press?

I don't know the answer, but I do know this.  Make sure there's no child day care in the building.

They Did the Monster Cash

"But those jobs lasted
on average only 35 hours"
SPIN METER: 'Help Wanted' counting stimulus jobs

PORTLAND, Ore. — How much are politicians straining to convince people that the government is stimulating the economy? In Oregon, where lawmakers are spending $176 million to supplement the federal stimulus, Democrats are taking credit for a remarkable feat: creating 3,236 new jobs in the program's first three months.

But those jobs lasted on average only 35 hours, or about one work week. After that, those workers were effectively back unemployed, according to an Associated Press analysis of state spending and hiring data. By the state's accounting, a job is a job, whether it lasts three hours, three days, three months, or a lifetime.

Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, and Bill Clinton can be, and have been, documented as being most responsible for the the the subprime loan crisis that  ruined our economy.  Dodd, and fellow Democrat Sen. Conrad Burns had denied knowing they were getting sweetheart loans from Countrywide Mortgage.  Now,  after damaging testimony from Countrywide fixers to the contrary,  a new excuse for trading influence for cash.

Ronald Reagan Speaks Out Against Socialized Medicine


Letter from Anne Wortham

The Oprah Antidote
But you have also foolishly traded your freedom and mine - what little there is left - for the chance to feel good. There is nothing in me that can share your happy obliviousness.
In researching Anne Wortham I also found that she is a follower of Ayn Rand. That's why I haven't heard of her before. A black university professor who is a Rand fan?

Why bring her up? Because I've just come across a letter she wrote to her fellow Americans on November 6th of last year. I thought you might enjoy it ... so here goes: - Neal Boortz

Fellow Americans,

Please know: I am black; I grew up in the segregated South. I did not vote for Barack Obama; I wrote in Ron Paul's name as my choice for president. Most importantly, I am not race conscious. I do not require a black president to know that I am a person of worth, and that life is worth living. I do not require a black president to love the ideal of America.

I cannot join you in your celebration. I feel no elation. There is no smile on my face. I am not jumping with joy. There are no tears of triumph in my eyes. For such emotions and behavior to come from me, I would have to deny all that I know about the requirements of human flourishing and survival - all that I know about the history of the United States of America, all that I know about American race relations, and all that I know about Barack Obama as a politician. I would have to deny the nature of the "change" that Obama asserts has come to America. Most importantly, I would have to abnegate my certain understanding that you have chosen to sprint down the road to serfdom that we have been on for over a century. I would have to pretend that individual liberty has no value for the success of a human life. I would have to evade your rejection of the slender reed of capitalism on which your success and mine depend. I would have to think it somehow rational that 94 percent of the 12 million blacks in this country voted for a man because he looks like them (that blacks are permitted to play the race card), and that they were joined by self-declared "progressive" whites who voted for him because he doesn't look like them. I would have to be wipe my mind clean of all that I know about the kind of people who have advised and taught Barack Obama and will fill posts in his administration - political intellectuals like my former colleagues at the Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government.

I would have to believe that "fairness" is equivalent of justice. I would have to believe that man who asks me to "go forward in a new spirit of service, in a new service of sacrifice" is speaking in my interest. I would have to accept the premise of a man that economic prosperity comes from the "bottom up," and who arrogantly believes that he can will it into existence by the use of government force. I would have to admire a man who thinks the standard of living of the masses can be improved by destroying the most productive and the generators of wealth.

Finally, Americans, I would have to erase from my consciousness the scene of 125,000 screaming, crying, cheering people in Grant Park, Chicago irrationally chanting "Yes We Can!" Finally, I would have to wipe all memory of all the times I have heard politicians, pundits, journalists, editorialists, bloggers and intellectuals declare that capitalism is dead - and no one, including especially Alan Greenspan, objected to their assumption that the particular version of the anti-capitalistic mentality that they want to replace with their own version of anti-capitalism is anything remotely equivalent to capitalism.

So you have made history, Americans. You and your children have elected a black man to the office of the president of the United States, the wounded giant of the world. The battle between John Wayne and Jane Fonda is over - and that Fonda won. Eugene McCarthy and George McGovern must be very happy men. Jimmie Carter, too. And the Kennedys have at last gotten their Kennedy look-a-like. The self-righteous welfare statists in the suburbs can feel warm moments of satisfaction for having elected a black person. So, toast yourselves: 60s countercultural radicals, 80s yuppies and 90s bourgeois bohemians. Toast yourselves, Black America. Shout your glee Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Duke, Stanford, and Berkeley. You have elected not an individual who is qualified to be president, but a black man who, like the pragmatist Franklin Roosevelt, promises to - Do Something! You now have someone who has picked up the baton of Lyndon Johnson's Great Society. But you have also foolishly traded your freedom and mine - what little there is left - for the chance to feel good. There is nothing in me that can share your happy obliviousness.
