Obama Around the World

I haz a offset

Jack Webb schools Obama

Marc Miller

Damn, that felt good

I’ll tell you who has fallen from this list: SENATOR KAY BAILEY HUTCHISON. She just voted with the Democrats to stop the Republican filibuster on health care. Add her bailout vote, and she is NEVER going to sniff this list. - Huntsman McRINO

There are just two people on this top 10 list I would vote for, under any circumstance, and one of them is Haley Barbour.  Take last year.  I supported, and voted for McCain, a man I detest, out of respect for the "he's better than the alternative" rubric.  But now we have a Republic that's been economically throttled, ideologically co-opted, and destined for perpetual one-world, second class status.  Our next president has to be a revolutionary, committed to undoing everything being heaped upon us now, and willing to use the full force of her office to achieve it.  A president who would not blanch at the thought of prosecuting New York Times editors for treason, when it's called for. And seek the death penalty. Kay Baily Hutchinson is representative of every other contender on this list. I don't trust them, and would not invite them into my home. 


Old Spook's lament

This "healthcare" abomination has made the government of the United States into my enemy. My God, what have they done?

Not gonna be here much. Its time to get things in order now before things happen. When the time comes I want to have sufficient lawyers and money and little property that can be seized (and as much money spirited away from the IRS's reach as possible). I already have guns (but refuse to use them in this instance).

And here I thought all my years of service would get me to a comfortable retirement instead of a prison cell with my wealth stripped from me by the IRS.

Prison is going to be a bitch, Do they pay for anti-coagulant and other medications? If not then I'll simply die sooner.

I Like Guns

I went over to RAK's site to check on the status of the sawed-off  M61 Vulcan (works on 4 AA batteries) and holster he's fabricating for me.  I found this non-denominational holiday video.

Nelson decides to suck ...

Ben Nelson's Offer

Curmudgeonly & Skeptical

 Larry Johnson [No Quarter] is another "lefty" blogger I've come to respect, as I did Texas Darlin'.   His post today, "How the White House Got To Ben Nelson Et al" offers a portside insight that is entirely compatible with what we know about this Thug White House. And the script that the WH read from.

I do not know this for a fact. But I do know this. Do you know what I mean? I know that Ben Nelson was threatened by Rahm Emanuel who told him that they’d make sure he loses what he most loves. His Senate seat.

Sarah is correct (again)Too bad most of the media doesn't ever READ what she actually SAYS but would rather report nonsense and lies just to make her look bad.Thanks for reporting this accurately!Who can argue with the truth? I mean really?

Palin lovers will call this nitpicking, but her lack of scientific understanding is epitomized by her use of "ions" rather than "eons", which is what she meant.

wiseone on 12/19/2009 at 14:04

Yes, and she also misspelled a bunch of other stuff.But…she's 100% correct on the facts of the matter!

Palin speaking the truth..? LMAO!This woman wouldn't know the truth is it bit her on that liposuctioned ass of hers.She is as stupid as the day is long, and those who see anything other than ruthless self promotion in her, well they are even more sad and pitiful than she is.God, this woman is an idiot.

WISEONE,Obama lovers will call this nitpicking, but his lack of geographical understanding is epitomized hy his use of "57 states" rather than "50 states," which is what he meant.

JOHNNY-BOY, Kind of ironic you talk about self-promotion when it is your god, Obama, who says "I" or "me" 1,200 times in 41 speeches. Second of all, Sarah is stupid? I guess you are only smart if you think there is global warming while there is a blizzard in Copenhagen, and while there are massive snow storms on the east coast. I guess you are only smart if you believe in spending trillions of dollars we don't have, giving 2 billion dollars to Brazil to drill for oil but not drill for oil here, giving control of our healthcare system to the same people who mess up everything they touch, thinking insulation is "sexy." Lets stop pretending, you and your ilk are noting more than Progressives who are sympathetic to the communist ideals espoused in the former Soviet Union, don't even try to deny it.

In the first 10 years (2014 to 2023),
  • Americans would have to pay  over $1 trillion in additional taxes,
  • over $1 trillion would be siphoned out of Medicare (over $200 billion out of Medicare Advantage alone)
  • deficits would rise by over $200 billion- unless Congress follows through on the bill's pledge to cut doctors' payments under Medicare by 21 percent next year and never raise them back up -- which would reduce doctors' enthusiasm for seeing Medicare patients dramatically.
The CBO's scoring contains what Bill Kristol  calls the key ten words: "reduce access to care or diminish the quality of care."

"It is unclear whether such a reduction in the growth rate could be achieved, and if so, whether it would be accomplished through greater efficiencies in the delivery of health care or would reduce access to care or diminish the quality of care."

Sen. Ben Nelson's principled (by traditional standards, not the Democrat Party's) stand against voting for any bill mandating taxpayer paid abortions was bought for $4½ million a year (the cost of picking up Nebraska's increased Medicaid tab).  The bill's default position is to pay for abortions; states would have to pass legislation to not fund abortions. Said Nelson, "I was a cheap date" (compared to Mary Landrieu). 

Matthew Continetti wrote Expect this sentence to get a lot of play:
  "CBO and JCT estimate that the direct spending and revenue effects of enacting the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act incorporating the manager’s amendment would yield a net reduction in federal deficits of $132 billion over the 2010-2019 period."
After that, CBO goes on, things get a little iffy:
These longer-term calculations assume that the provisions are enacted and remain unchanged throughout the next two decades.
Further words escape me.
