SALLY MORRIS: A PRESCRIPTION FOR BETTER HEALTH CARE

“We’ve got to do something!” is the mantra of those in our labor unions and government who are desperately trying to get the federal government’s foot wedged in the door to our right to our own health care and insurance decisions, our privacy and, of course, further into our finances.  There’s room for disagreement with the premise that there’s something wrong with our overall health care system - and even more with the idea that it’s any of the federal government’s business.

SELWYN DUKE: SAVAGE’S WEBSITE ATTACKED BY HACKERS

The left is morally relativistic at its core, meaning, its members generally don’t believe in Absolute Moral Truth.  Because of this, there is nothing to govern their agenda except for their own desires, their own feelings.  That is to say, a person who understands that we are meant to govern ourselves with that eternal, unchanging moral yardstick called Truth realizes that the end does not justify the means.  Sure, he isn’t perfect, but he understands that he cannot just “follow his heart,” that his emotions aren’t the arbiters of reality.  This is why Saul “the Red” Alinsky instructed his followers to force their adversaries (that means traditionalists) to live up to their own principles.  You see, he understood that we actually have some.

DORGAN AND CONRAD ADVANCING RADICAL CASS SUNSTEIN!

Wednesday, September 9, 2009, Senators Dorgan and Conrad voted for the Motion to Invoke Cloture on the Nomination of Cass R. Sunstein, to be Administrator of the Office of Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget. Sunstein has a documented record of anti-gun, anti-hunting, animal rights, private property rights legal extremism!

LOTS OF OIL…....TOO MANY WACKO ENVIRONMENTALISTS AND TOO MUCH FAIRY DUST RENEWABLE DREAMING

The U. S. Geological Survey issued a report in April (‘08) that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big…  It was a revised report (hadn’t been updated since ‘95) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota ;  western South Dakota ; and extreme eastern Montana ....up to 500 billion barrels. Enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years. All of this abundant, cheap energy but America chases fairy dust….wind, biofuel, solar? What is wrong with this? The religion of Environmentalism!

COMMIES IN THE WHITE HOUSE?

The mainstream media has done it’s best to ignore the latest Obama Administration scandal. Van Jones was the White House Council on Environmental Quality’s Special Advisor for Green Jobs. He was to have been the man in charge of the distribution of $30 BILLION of your dollars. He was fired early Sunday morning (before the Sunday morning political talk shows could prepare?). The truth is that Glenn Beck outed Van Jones who has been an avowed COMMUNIST! We almost had a man overseeing a huge amount of taxpayer money who likely could not even have obtain a rudimentary security clearance to work for a U.S. Defense Department contractor! Have you ever heard the term, “The nuts are running the asylum”? Here is the proof!

DENNIS PATRICK: BIRDS ON THE BRAIN

Politics and policy will always nip at our heals, but other things are more enduring -- and endearing. For example, the peaceful observation of the birds spells a welcome respite to the acrimony around us. The birds are hearty, resilient and not bothered by the “sophistication” of the world that too often plagues mankind. Theirs, however, is the simple life albeit a struggle for survival.

MARK STEYN: OBAMA AND THE CULT OF PERSONALITY

The Omnipresent Leader has traditionally been a characteristic feature of Third World basket-case dumps: the conflation of the man and the state is explicit, and ubiquitous.

Altogether now! Let us chant for mankind and use our pens to write, “O beloved Obama, our courageous president, we are all servants defending the hope for you and marching to change.”

Any self-respecting schoolkid, enjoined by his principal to be a “servant” to the head of state, would reply, “Get lost, creep.” And, if they still taught history in American schools, he’d add, “Oh, and by the way, that question was settled in 1776.”

HERB MITTELSTEDT: THE EMERGING STRUGGLE

While pondering the direction our nation is heading, even researching the French Revolution, in which many heads rolled, I came across a book titled:  “EMERGING STRUGGLE FOR STATE SOVEREIGNTY.” Betsy Ross Press. 1969

Having been a federal employee for nearly 37 years, the books describes in detail a growing bureaucracy, which I experienced, observed, and participated in.  Hindsight is good, but unless it generates a constitutional foresight, the insight is wasted!

SIGN OF THE TIMES: ASTROTURF AND SHEEPLE?

It is likely that the whole event was a staged and paid for SEIU union manipulated event!

Check out the signage of two respective events. Images of the “Health Care Now”, NDPeople rally show signs of obvious quality and uniformity. It seems as if the supporters of health care reform arrived and someone handed the signs out to everyone. ALL the signs are manufactured and professional

I have a possible new name for the union financed, everything-provided rent-a-mob astroturfers who claim to speak for “ordinary people”, perhaps, based on the facts we might refer to them as NDSheeple?

DENNIS PATRICK: ROBERT W. SERVICE—THE POET

Any time is a good time to read Robert Service. I found my time while recuperating. Some claim that he was the most widely read balladeer of his day. It would be unfortunate if today’s generation missed knowing the poems of Robert Service. For those already familiar with his light verse, September is as good a time as any to say “Thank you, Mr. Service, for gracing our days with your poetry.”

A REPUBLICAN HEALTH CARE CONTRACT WITH AMERICA

Republicans need to come out with a short, clear, reasonable, post card size plan right now.  Make sure everyone in America knows what it is.  Ask the American people to demand that Congress pass the Republican Health Care Reform and not some nebulous, mammoth, back-door-deal Chicago mafia health care plan.  Democrats, now, stand for nothing popular at all.  Once Republicans clearly stand for something sensible and easy to grasp, the political battlefield changes dramatically.

By careful choice of words in discussion of a specific aspect of current health care legislation Obama and socialized medicine supporters continue to try and fool Americans about the implications of taxpayers paying massively for the health care of illegal aliens.

SELWYN DUKE: THE RACE IDIOTS

Not only does this selective moral blindness numb us to our real national sins, it also allows the reprobate the illusion of righteousness.  In fact, while the stereotype of the self-righteous oaf is of a rightist religious zealot, a far more fitting candidate is the loopy leftist lunkhead.  He is the one who will parade about defining favored vices as virtue, worshipping sex and mammon, secure in his own saintliness because he utters nary a racial joke and bears nobly that newly-minted white man’s burden.  The modern leftist is like a Nazi who thinks he is good because he is hygienic and punctual.

BRUCE WALKER: THE WAGES OF APPEASEMENT

The world has known for many years that the wages of appeasement are the loss of moral high ground to monstrous villains.  During the Cold War, although America usually kept its military power adequate to deter Soviet aggression, the American Left (and European Left) blithely pretended that a regime which conspired with Adolph Hitler to start the Second World War, which instructed the Nazis about how to create massive camps in which millions of souls could perish – as millions had before the Nazis even came to power in Germany – and which preached as doctrine that any lie, any crime, any vice which advanced the cause of communism was morally on the same plane as America and the West.

DENNIS PATRICK: HEALTH CARE CO-OPS—TRUTH AND FICTION

Senator Kent Conrad touts the example of Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound (GHCPS) as an example of a health care co-op. Unfortunately, that is not a good example to use. GHCPS policy holders do not have ownership rights. They may apply for membership, but policy holders neither own the “cooperative” nor do they have full membership rights.

Ultimately, every civil program the feds attempt to manage eventually is driven into the ground and out of budget with inevitable cost overruns. Why entrust the government with yet another costly boondoggle to botch?

BRUCE WALKER: EVERY STATE IS A CONSERVATIVE STATE

Now Gallup has come up with three polls in three months which deal explicitly with the ideology of Americans which confirms everything I have been writing about the strong conservative character of our country.  The Red State / Blue State map reflects a partisan divide in America, but not an ideological divide at all.  If Red State means “conservative” and Blue State means “liberal,” then guess what?  The entire map of the United States, except for a peculiar tiny rectangle carved out of southern Maryland, is Red State.  The Biggest Missing Story in Politics is still The Biggest Missing Story in Politics.  What is it that Republicans don’t get?

HERB MITTELSTEDT: CZAR; FROM WHERE, ON WHAT BASIS?

Did our founding fathers use the word in our Constitution?  Nope, couldn’t find any mention of it. They were focused on a republic.  So what is going on, now that our emperor, oops president, has appointed about 36 czars?  He obviously envisions himself as a person having great or unlimited power over others; an autocrat.  Where is the constitutional basis?  Is our astute congress sleeping? Do they know the constitutional basis?  Would they be willing to share it with the rest of us?  Has anyone asked the Supreme Court?

MARK STEYN: YOU’VE HAD SOME GOOD INNINGS

The problem with government health systems is not that they pull the plug on Grandma. It’s that Grandma has a hell of a time getting plugged in in the first place. The only way to “control costs” is to restrict access to treatment, and the easiest people to deny treatment to are the oldsters. Don’t worry, it’s all very scientific.

ALLISON GROTBERG: HOSPITAL BILL VALID REASON FOR GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER OF HEALTH CARE?

Senators Dorgan, Conrad and Congressman Pomeroy, there are a myriad of solutions to some of the most painful problems associated with our current health care system. Don’t turn control of our personal lives over to to government and shut down the private health care system. Look for freedom-friendly free market solutions. And fellow citizens, let’s be responsible. Let’s get creative, and let’s stop looking for parental care and crisis-relief from the government alone.
