Huzzah! Huzzah!!

"The King announced that henceforth, because he and his Magic Pony are very smart and will show us how, everyone can get more of everything, and everything will be better than it is now, but it will all cost less money than even just some of us are spending now. Brave, clever King Canute! No King will ever again have to worry about the sea moving, or about health care. Why didn't we make him the King way back when Good King Ronny was getting old? Oh yeah, now I 'member: It's 'cause King Canute was still doing cocaine back then, when he was just Prince Barry. It's good that he stopped that, and that he learned to think and speak so clearly now, especially about how to save money! Yay! Nobody is more believable than King Canute when he promises to save money and cut government spending!

Thereupon King Canute did a happy dance to make everyone feel happy, and then he acknowledged the many cheers, and he remounted his Magic Pony and rode back up the aisle. Most of those on the right side of the aisle, and even a few of them on the left, noticed that the Magic Pony had left behind a steaming, fragrant gift on the pretty blue carpet. Most of them on the left thought the gift was dessert, so they gobbled it up while insisting that it was really, really yummy. But they saved a piece for you. Do you want it?

Title of the Year!!! And then the quote of the day - all in one....

Mandates by politicians are what have driven up the cost of insurance already. Politicians love to play Santa Claus and leave it to others to raise prices to cover the inevitable costs.

Yes, let's....

Obama’s Trouble with Numbers:
"Let’s stipulate that it was wrong of Rep. Joe Wilson (R., S.C.) to shout “You lie” during President Obama’s health-care speech. It was a violation of courtesy and etiquette. Wilson apologized — which is more than the Democrats who booed President Bush’s State of the Union address in 2005 ever did.

But I confess that watching at home, similar exclamations were heard. Some seemed to have burst, irrepressible, from my own lips."

Let's give 'em a country to run!!!

Rangel, Sign of the Times:
"Actually, they may wonder how it happened that the more successful and powerful you become in America, the more proof there is that the country is racist. Rangel would have us believe that an African-American’s election to the presidency, made possible in large part by millions of white supporters, translates into racist opposition to health-care legislation — or into Charles Rangel being unfairly charged with tax dodging."

Political Malpractice: As it has always been...

"Most Americans agree that our health care system is broken and must be fixed. But it is increasingly clear that what ails health care is not too little, but too much government intervention. Federal and state tax preferences for employer-sponsored health insurance distort the market in a way that limits choices for individuals, reduces competition among insurers, and artificially inflates costs for health care services. For most working Americans, switching jobs often entails switching health plans and doctors or losing coverage altogether, while many others find non-employer-sponsored insurance unaffordable or difficult to obtain."

Goose, meet Gander...

Video Flashback: Dems Shout And Boo At Bush During 2005 SOTU

"So here’s a question — can anyone identify a constitutional right that could fairly be compared to an affirmative right to health care for all? Is there any constitutional right that obligates the government to spend money on me, non-conditionally?"

How about a boatload of Bullshit?

The President's Health Care Speech: What To Listen For

And they're coming for YOU.....

The New Ledger:
"Van Jones got his job through mainstream elements in the Democratic party, despite an affiliation that should have had him laughed out of polite society. The press sought to avoid coverage of the Jones story for as long as possible, and many on the Left continue to try to cover for Jones. Want a takeaway lesson from all of this? Here it is: It’s reassuring to see that Jones lost his job. But the amount of ambivalence that has gone into finding what should be plenty obvious to all–that Jones was and is hardly a model public figure–shows that we still have a lot of maturing to do as a political society. Casting Van Jones out should have been an easy-as-pie call, but for some reason, his defenders decided to make the process harder than it should have been by trying to ignore his story, and then, trying to defend the indefensible."

But that IS the goal, you Idiot!

ObamaCare’s Crippling Deficits:
"Such enormous deficits would crowd out productivity-enhancing investments in new equipment and software as the government borrows funds otherwise available to private investors. The result would be slower economic growth and a lower standard of living."

Nobody seems to get the fact that this is EXACTLY what Obama and his Merry Band want. This way, you MUST keep electing Democrats who spoon-feed constituents, and tuck them in at night so that we all know who MUST be in charge. This is, by no means, an overstatement - just look across the ponds at Europe and Japan.....

So why do so many seem to love getting bilked?

Listening to a Liar:
"If we do not believe that the president is stupid, then what do we believe? The only reasonable alternative seems to be that he wanted to get this massive government takeover of medical care passed into law before the public understood what was in it.

Moreover, he wanted to get re-elected in 2012 before the public experienced what its actual consequences would be."

Yes, it was called the Soviet Union....

Stephen Spruiell:
"The thinking implicit in rants like these is that the government ought to order consumer preferences based on what smart academics, altruistic activists, and serious environmentalists think people need. Consumers, of all people, can’t be trusted to decide for themselves. Ironically, this is the philosophy that brought us the Cash for Clunkers program, which induced consumers to buy something they really didn’t need: new cars, when their old ones were running just fine."

Don’t Like Obama’s Speech? You Shouldn’t Be Raising Children

"Poor President Obama. His only chance to be heard is his weekly townhall meetings and radio addresses, daily press conferences by his press secretary, a nationwide speech to America’s schools and an exclusive primetime address to Congress."

Informed Consent.....
"Life Imitates Monty Python

* Man: 'What's this, then?' Mr. Brown: 'A liver donor's card.' Man: 'Need we say more?' . . . Mr. Brown: 'Listen! I can't give it to you now. It says, 'In the event of death.' Uh. Oh! Ah. Ah. Eh.' Man: 'No one who has ever had their liver taken out by us has survived.'--dialogue from 'The Meaning of Life,' 1983
* 'Cass Sunstein, President Barack Obama's nominee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), has advocated a policy under which the government would 'presume' someone has consented to having his or her organs removed for transplantation into someone else when they die unless that person has explicitly indicated that his or her organs should not be taken. Under such a policy, hospitals would harvest organs from people who never gave permission for this to be done.', Sept. 4"
