DOJ Obamunists Break New Ground
In a landmark Idaho case, the Justice Department
forced a group of doctors to accept government price controls

Boned Jello

In a nutshell, Boise orthopedists agreed that worker's comp reimbursement for their services was insufficient.  They voted to withhold service until, the Idaho Industrial Commission set new fee schedules. The Attorney General of the United States had other ideas, however.  This was after-all an early affront to ObamaKare.  He flew in, and coerced them to think it over, or be tried for felony price fixing.    

The Idaho attorney general, then, had the effrontery to accuse the doctors of disrupting the free market, by removing competition.

The free marketplace works best when there is fair competition. Anticompetitive activity harms the marketplace, businesses and consumers. Enforcement of the antitrust laws restores competition to the marketplace to the benefit of businesses and consumers and the marketplace as a whole.

"Restores competition?"  With who, Midas Muffler?  Krispy Kreme?   ObamaKare?   I feel like I'm living in  a history book.

I can't live with these people. Get out!

Win a soccer game by more than five points and you lose, Ottawa league says

In yet another nod to the protection of fledgling self-esteem, an Ottawa children’s soccer league has introduced a rule that says any team that wins a game by more than five points will lose by default.

Kevin Cappon said he first heard about the rule on May 20 — right after he had scored his team’s last allowable goal. His team then tossed the ball around for fear of losing the game.

“Heaven forbid when these kids get into the real world. They won’t be prepared to deal with the competition out there.”

I know what you're saying.  "But Rodge, that's in Canada." So was nationalized health care.  You want a solution?  Here's a solution. Whenever you get a sense that others in your community are outraged by stuff like this, act. Find out who's in charge and read the riot act.  Didn't work?  Picket his house.  Didn't work?  Hang him.

Limeade.  I had it yesteday, after practicing for this weekend's 10K run.  90º heat.  sweat.  parched.  sensuously musky.  Mixed it with club soda 50/50.  Wow.  MoSup prefers the Lemonade, which is also de-lish.I think this company will be the next Snapple.  Use empty bottles for water.  We can'r throw them away, for some reason.   Get a distributorship.

Take me to your me

Plug That Hole!

Today's Plug

Boned Jello

Wesley Pruden today: Trying to plug a hole with rant and rage.

Spike Lee, the moviemaker, says it's time for the president to "go off," to start jumping up and down and show some entertaining fury and frenzy.

Which is what the Administration has been doing a grand job of.   The only real leadership, it seems,  is coming from unlikely places.

A child prodigy in New York, still working on her Ph.D in engineering, says she got to cogitating about the problem and told the New York Post that she figured out what to do in less time than it takes most people to work a crossword puzzle. She would sink flat tires into the well, then inflate them to squeeze a seal. "I figured experts would know more about it than I did but their ideas didn't work," says Alia Sabur, 21. "So I started thinking about it." Miss Sabur read novels at 2 and played the clarinet in a symphony orchestra at 11, so plugging the hole would be child's work.

David from Athens, NY called Rushbo on Wednesday (2nd hour). 

...  have a degree in environmental science ... the  seepage could have been stopped weeks ago ...   by drilling another hole into the bedrock below the sea floor, not that far;  ... or a low yield nuclear weapon would have closed that off within an instant. (Audio)

David went on to surprise us all by citing that the Soviet Union did exactly that back in the '60's.  A quick Googling verified that assertion, and yielded another surprise -  Russian advice: Nuke the oil spill, that’ll fix it!  Yes, I understand the hysteria the media would manufacture with this idea; but its an idea that should be part of the public debate. If these pecker-hads won't use a baby nuke in this instance, forget any self defense usage. Sheesh.

Finally, Limbo reflected  about why it is that the Obamacy's been foot-dragging, suggesting that, maybe, Obama has secret polling data showing this is helping him.  I agree, in the abstract.  The Boy Kenyan has already cynically used  to stop 100% of our drilling, or even exploring for oil.  Obama is dead-set on getting the  climate bill  passed. and as noted yesterday, that appears to be what's happening.

They anxious to come too!

Gov. Jennifer Granholm challenged today the notion of making Detroit a citywide tax-free zone for 10 years, saying state and local taxes pay for services the city needs to attract businesses and residents.

Trade Center Mosque

That World Trade Center
Muslim Victory Mosque?

Boned Jello

No less incomprehensible than having a cipher from Kenya in the Oval Office is this.  NYC approving the building of a "victory mosque"  on a site formerly in the shadow of  the World Trade Center.  That Islamists destroyed.

Rush had an extensive interview with Andrew C. McCarthy on Wednesday.  He was the the lead prosecutor on the case against the blind sheik and 11 other jihadists, and now the author of • The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America    After the interview, Rush kicked himself for not asking about why the mosque was approved, and called him back.  This is a clip of that second interview.
