Thanks Kids for Paying Our Health Bills

A special shout out to all the 20 and 30-somethings who are enthusiastically, albeit naïvely, supporting the Democratic upheaval of our health care system. My boomer friends and I are being enrolled into the system in unprecedented numbers as our age and health issues increase. We really appreciate you all hocking your futures for this bankrupt system. Medicare is up to at least 36 trillion in unfunded liabilities so far and that’s just one massive government (ie: taxpayer-funded) program.  Support it? You bet you will.

Sarah Palin “Confuses” Ex-Con Martha Stewart

My jaw dropped. I couldn’t believe I heard America’s most bland, boring, former jail-bird, Martha Stewart, call Sarah Palin “boring”, “confused” and “dangerous”. Now whether you like Palin or not even the mainstream media find her, based on their obsessive coverage, “interesting”. She certainly couldn’t be “boring” or the ADD national media would have dropped coverage of her in a skinny minute following the 2008 Presidential election. Let’s review: it was Martha who served time in prison. Wasn’t she the one “confused” about that insider trading deal? And “dangerous”?  Maybe Martha was referring to the danger Sarah Palin poses to liberal power. Martha, Martha, Martha…go home, have a glass of wine and start working on those all-important, homemade, wire Christmas ornament hangers. On second thought: have a bottle of wine and lighten up! But don’t talk stocks with anyone; you might get “confused”.



Health care: Liberals Taking vs. Liberal Giving

Democrats in the U.S. Senate have voted to move forward with debate on the health care bill that will cost into the trillions, lead to rationing, raise premiums, cut Medicare for the elderly and disabled, fine those who don’t buy into their program, send them to jail if they don’t pay the fine and tax businesses (ie: employers) that make life changing, enhancing devices such as artificial limbs. And all this when 90% of Americans have health insurance and most like their policies! It ought to tell you something when Congress is so desperate for money that Democrats want to tax Botox (the Bo-tax) and other cosmetic procedures. Smile everyone!

Then again liberals are the caring people, the ones who have the big hearts and in Congress especially the really big wallets. But evidently liberals don’t like to spend much if it means spending their own money. Yours: yes; theirs no. When it comes to charitable giving, those who believe in big government give less than those who believe in limited government. Those from conservative states give more than their liberal counterparts. It reminds one of the quote often attributed to Margaret Thatcher: “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”



Longer terms=Fewer Conservatives?

A new Gallup survey indicates what we all know: we don’t think much of Congress. Their approval rating is abysmal: only 26% of Republicans and Democrats approve of the job Congress is doing and even fewer Independents think much of Congress. An interesting observation by American Thinker writer Larry Anderson: the longer a conservative is in Congress the more moderate they become. The longer a moderate is in Congress the more liberal. In Anderson’s words: “Your congressman may have kissed your baby or found your lost social security check, but odds are that if he has been in office for more than a decade…he is no longer a conservative.” Sure makes you wish for another groundswell for term limits.



The Joke’s on Newsweek/Feminism

NY Times columnist David Brooks has labeled Sarah Palin quote, “a joke”. She continues to handle the onslaught of demeaning portrayals with with grace and dignity. Newsweek swiped a picture from Running World of Palin in shorts to put on their cover. Where are the liberal women denouncing the sexism? (I’m waiting…listening…reading…where are you?) Newsweek may be showcasing a buff Palin but they’re also showcasing the joke they and feminism have become. It’s also interesting: arguably the best picture they could have taken (since when did news magazines start ripping off other magazines’ pictures anyway? Can we spell “lawsuit”?) from Running World was an equally attractive Sarah in snug, below-the-knee jogging pants,  a gorgeous view of an Alaskan lake and mountains behind her, one hand on a stroller, the other holding Trig. Wonder why they didn’t use that one if they really wanted to swipe a picture from another magazine? Maybe that one would have been a swipe at pro-abortion feminists.

The Picture Newsweek Didn't Use



Go Rogue: Buy “Going Rogue”

Sarah Palin’s book “Going Rogue” is officially on sale. Send a message to the mainstream media: buy as many copies as you can and share them with relatives and friends. Let’s make Sarah Palin rich!

 Whether or not you like her as a potential Presidential candidate, no decent American deserves the excoriating treatment the mainstream media aimed at her and her children. They wouldn’t dare mention anything negative about Sasha and Malia Obama.



Low Bow, Low Morale

The President is off on another trip, this time to Asia to bow to the Emperor of Japan. He has also bowed to the Chinese Premier and the Saudi King! The deference to foreign royalty is certainly puzzling coming from Barack Obama, or maybe not. It’s another show of weakness that even seems confusing to those to whom he’s bowing. The President of the United States should bow to no one, and I hate to bring up race here, but why in the world would the first “black” President show such subservience to those in power? I just don’t get it.

The President obviously doesn’t have back problems to go that low. So while he’s jet setting around the world bowing to leaders, and in the case of Saudia Arabia and China, suppressors of the common man, the only place the President doesn’t have time to go is Afghanistan.

New Army surveys indicate the morale of our soldiers fighting the Taliban has fallen sharply.  President Obama, it’s time to live up to your primary responsibility: Commander-in-Chief. Maybe if Oprah got more involved so would our President.

I thought the President might really stick it to his critics and I’d eat crow: figured he’d make a surprise visit to the troops over Christmas. We’ll he didn’t. I don’t have to eat crow but that’s not much consolation. What we did get was a Christmas Day terrorist visit to the skies of the U.S.
