The healthcare issue is very important to our household. My wife has stage 4 breast cancer and was considered to be terminal, that was over 1 yr. ago. Thanks to having the choice of our own private insurance she was able to recieve treatment evan when Doctors told her it would not help her. They were wrong. Government run healthcare may have listened to the Doctors or told the Doctors she was a waste of funds. So, I want to thank everyone fighting for our personal rights.

Not too long ago, the GOP released this diagram
describing ObamaCare. What they got wrong is that it looks more like this:
God help us all if we fall into that mess.
In order to more fully understand this diagram go to the following… Continue

Examination of his U.S. Senate voting record reveals him to be a hard leftist. A little-reported letter from the candidate to the "LGBT community" declares Obama's enthusiastic solidarity with the radical homosexual-rights agenda. His long-time spiritual mentor and pastor turns out to be a rabid, racist, America-hater who claims the U.S. invented AIDS to wipe out black people. Bloggers are even piecing together an intriguing case that Obama, a Muslim in his youth, may still be a closet… Continue

SHERMAN FREDERICK: Enough is enough, Harry
This newspaper traces its roots to before Las Vegas was Las Vegas.
We've seen cattle ranches give way to railroads. We chronicled the construction of Hoover Dam. We reported on the first day of legalized gambling. The first hospital. The first school. The first church. We survived the mob, Howard Hughes, the Great Depression, several recessions, two world… Continue

So we are to have a French health-care system without a French tradition of political protest. It is odd that American liberalism, in a veritable state of insurrection during the Bush presidency, now seeks political quiescence. These “townhallers” who have come forth to challenge ObamaCare have been labeled “evil-mongers” (Harry Reid), “un-American” (Nancy Pelosi), agitators and rowdies and worse.
A political class, and a media elite, that… Continue

This is a curious re-election strategy, especially for a Representative who made her name by bird-dogging her former Congressman at his town-hall forums. Consistency isn’t Carol Shea-Porter’s
strong suit, apparently, as she demonstrates in this clip from the meeting she finally held… Continue

I am not sure if anyone posted this yet--but it appears there is a good, solid House Bill that the Republicans have put together (ONLY 63 PAGES)!! Can we get the word out? Pelosi has buried it in committees and it will not see daylight. We need to expose this. Send to everyone you know. Link and highlights follow:
The Empowering Patients First Act, or H.R. 3400, would… Continue

Two stories I read today just had me livid. One involves a 16 year old high school student named Heather Lawrence. Heather, a student at Springstead High School in Spring Hill, Florida, is in the school's Junior ROTC program and plans on enlisting in the Army. Last week she noticed that when her class recited the Pledge of Allegiance, there was one person who stayed seated and didn't participate. The student is a Muslim and was wearing a hijab. Yeah I know, big surprise, eh? Later on, Heather… Continue

Earlier in the week, we found out that unions have good reasons to conduct an Astroturf campaign on behalf of ObamaCare — in fact, ten billion good reasons. The Detroit Free Press reported that HR3200 gives a $10,000,000,000 subsidy to union pension and benefit plans
, a key component that had gone largely unremarked. Later in the week, the Detroit News’ editorial… Continue

1. Healthcare Reform Foes Using Radical Alinsky's Tactics
Influential Chicago activist Saul Alinsky wrote the book on community organizing for the left.
Now in an ironic twist, opponents of President Barack Obama and the Democrats' healthcare reform plans are employing some of the very same tactics that… Continue

I'm so glad to find a site where other like minded people are sharing thoughts and opinions. I used to think of myself as middle of the road leaning left on one or two issues. All that began to change when I went back to school to earn my Masters Degree and teaching credential. I was astounded at the extreme left wing stance of ALL of the instructors and the authors of the required reading materials (e.g. Paolo Freire). There was NO tolerance for dissenting opinions.
When I began teaching,… Continue
