Violence at Wisconsin Protests

Violence has been caught on tape at the WI pro-union rally.

http://video.foxnews.com/v/4559550/reporter-mike-tobin-harassed-attacked/

In the video, the protestors attempt to shut down the reporter and his camera. They try shouting him down and then he reports that a guy hits him.

Take note of the sign behind the reporter when the violence erupts. It has a SEIU emblem on it. Remember them? They are the thugs that attacked the Tea Party people at the Townhalls.

Monckton’s Mexican Missive (via Watts Up With That?)

“Watts Up With That?” is on the right track once again.

From Nopenhagen to Yes We Cancun by Christopher Monckton Thanks to Wikileaks, everyone here in the Mañana Republic of Mexico now knows just how much bullying and arm-twisting the administration of Barack Obama in the United States applied to various countries around the world so that they would (and did) sign up to the Copenhagen climate accord. Without that pressure, nothing at all would have happened at Copenhagen this time last year, and “the … Read More

Our children will not know snow…

Back in 2000, the Global Warming nuts in England proudly proclaimed that the children in England will not know what snow was and that the times of Charles Dickens like White Christmases was over.

Now today, 10 years later, England is facing its second massive snowy winter.

Obama Denies a Creator

Obama can’t bring himself to say in the Declaration of Independence quote: “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights”. Why did he omit this key phrase?

Also, he kinda plays around with historical facts. He states that Mexicans were here before America was even a thought. How can this happen when Mexico was independent until the mid 1800’s?

He also states that the Portugese had colonies in America. Where was this supposed to have happened? Can someone name a Portugese colony in Colonial America?

He makes things up to play to his illegal immigrant audience.

So much for the “smartes President ever”, huh?

National Pray for Hitchens Day

Read this article about reknown New Atheist Chrsitopher Hitchens.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/09/20/atheist-christopher-hitchens-skip-prayer-day-honor/

Hitchens

Mr. Hitchens is in advanced stages of cancer. In this article he talks about a religious friend of his who sponsors today, Sept 20th, as “National Pray for Hitchens Day” concerning his illness. In the article, Mr. Hitchens doesn’t accept religion but allows people to pray on his behalf. I find this encouraging and it speaks well of him. It shows that he is not a militant atheist like some of his other collegues such as Dawkins. I have debated atheists who would be violently opposed to even offering a prayer for them when they are sick.

While I still oppose his views and hope for Mr. Hitchens conversion some day, I also offer my prayers for his good health and for strength to his family during this time of trial.

Racism in the Tea Party Movement

On the Stephanie Miller show today, they offer “proof that the Tea-baggers are racist”. What is the proof you ask? Gasp! Most of the people who attended Glenn Beck’s rally were white. This fact was repeated on Ms. Miller’s show over and over. Seems like she is the one focused on race here.

That is the first thing she sees when looks at people I guess.

Here is a little tidbit of information of the Leftwing nuts who complain that the Tea Party is racist because most of its members are white…. most conservatives are white! Most progressives are minority. If you have a pro-Obama rally on the Washington Mall, I guarantee that the majority of attendees will be minority. Does this mean Obama’s supporters are racist?

I defy Ms. Miller or anyone else to show that the heart of hte Tea Party are racists.

You know, for the whole show today, Ms. Miller did not even try to debate a topic. It was nothing but hate filled diatribes against Glenn Beck, Tea Partiers, and white people. I think she would get toasted in an actual debate with Glenn Beck but she is probably too afraid to do that.

Thorium: Why aren’t we using this?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/7970619/Obama-could-kill-fossil-fuels-overnight-with-a-nuclear-dash-for-thorium.html

“If Barack Obama were to marshal America’s vast scientific and strategic resources behind a new Manhattan Project, he might reasonably hope to reinvent the global energy landscape and sketch an end to our dependence on fossil fuels within three to five years. ”

“Dr Rubbia says a tonne of the silvery metal – named after the Norse god of thunder, who also gave us Thor’s day or Thursday – produces as much energy as 200 tonnes of uranium, or 3,500,000 tonnes of coal. A mere fistful would light London for a week.

Thorium eats its own hazardous waste. It can even scavenge the plutonium left by uranium reactors, acting as an eco-cleaner. “It’s the Big One,” said Kirk Sorensen, a former NASA rocket engineer and now chief nuclear technologist at Teledyne Brown Engineering.

“Once you start looking more closely, it blows your mind away. You can run civilisation on thorium for hundreds of thousands of years, and it’s essentially free. You don’t have to deal with uranium cartels,” he said.

Thorium is so common that miners treat it as a nuisance, a radioactive by-product if they try to dig up rare earth metals. The US and Australia are full of the stuff. So are the granite rocks of Cornwall. You do not need much: all is potentially usable as fuel, compared to just 0.7pc for uranium.”

So begins the Government Control of Healthcare

In the NYTimes today, Health Plans Must Provide Some Tests at No Cost : http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/15/health/policy/15health.html?_r=1&ref=health

Some highlights include:

The White House on Wednesday issued new rules requiring health insurance companies to provide free coverage for dozens of screenings, laboratory tests and other types of preventive care.

So the Federal Governemnt (specifically the President) are setting “rules for (private) health insurance companies”? Since when is this allowed under the U.S. Constitution?

The rules will eliminate co-payments, deductibles and other charges for blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol tests; many cancer screenings; routine vaccinations; prenatal care; and regular wellness visits for infants and children.

Other services that must be offered at no charge include counseling to help people stop smoking; screening and counseling for obesity; and tests for infection with the virus that causes AIDS.

Ok, this equals higher expenses for the insurance companies. This means that…

The administration said the requirements could increase premiums by 1.5 percent, on average.

So I am going to pay for donut boy down the street to get healthscreening? Since when is it my resposnibility to cover their healthcare? It is absurd and immoral.

In some cases, the task force has specified how frequently a service, like colonoscopy, should be performed. If the guidelines are silent, the rules say, an insurer may use “reasonable medical management techniques to determine the frequency” of services.

In some cases, the task force has specified how frequently a service, like colonoscopy, should be performed. If the guidelines are silent, the rules say, an insurer may use “reasonable medical management techniques to determine the frequency” of services.

So a Government Task Force is deciding how frequently services can be provided? Not your doctor? Sounds like the healthcare rationing has already begun. What’s next, Death Panels?

Just Doing Jobs Americans Won’t Do… Like Rape

Both Democrats and Republicans currently want to give thugs like these a path to US Citizenship. Can you believe it? This is just another case of why we need to flush illiegal immigrants out of the country and embrace the ones that did it the right way.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/07/13/police-illegal-immigrants-rape-year-old-texas-girl-july-th-party/?test=latestnews

A pair of illegal immigrants raped a 14-year-old Texas girl at July 4th party in Texas, where the teen was later found sitting naked in a bathtub, police said.

The victim told police that she went to an Independence Day party with her cousin in Horseshoe Bay, Tex., about 40 miles northwest of Austin, where she was left in a room with Anibal Escobar, 19, and Anael Martinez, 22, MyFoxAustin reported.

The two Honduran natives, who told police they are in the U.S. illegally, made advances at the victim and then raped her, she told police. The victim’s cousin discovered her in the bathtub and brought her home.

Escobar and Martinez were arrested early in the morning on July 9 and face felony charges of aggravated sexual assault, MyFoxAustin reported. Local investigators contacted Texas Rangers to assist in their investigation and translate, as none of the witnesses at the party or the suspects spoke English.

Universial Healthcare: What would Reagan Say?

Let’s look at a speech given by Reagan in 1961 concerning a push for Universial Healthcare that was being tried at the time. The words, spoken in 1961, are prophetic to today’s time.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2492252/posts

Ronald Wilson Reagan

Back in 1927 an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism the American people will adopt every fragment of the socialist program.
There are many ways in which our government has invaded the precincts of private citizens, method of earning a living; our government is in business to the extent of owning more than 19,000 businesses covering 47 different lines of activity. This amounts to a fifth of the total industrial capacity of the United States.

But at the moment I would like to talk about another way because this threat is with us, and at the moment, is more imminent.

One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine.

It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project, most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can’t afford it.

Now, the American people, if you put it to them about socialized medicine and gave them a chance to choose, would unhesitatingly vote against it. We had an example of this. Under the Truman administration it was proposed that we have a compulsory health insurance program for all people in the United States, and, of course, the American people unhesitatingly rejected this.

So with the American people on record as not wanting socialized medicine, Congressman Ferrand introduced the Ferrand bill. This was the idea that all people of Social Security age, should be brought under a program of compulsory health insurance. Now this would not only be our senior citizens, this would be the dependents and those that are disabled, this would be young people if they are dependents of someone eligible for social security.

Now , Congressman Ferrand, brought the program out on that idea out , on just for that particular group of people. But Congressman Ferrand was subscribing to this foot-in-the door philosophy, because he said, “If we can only break through and get our foot inside the door, then we can expand the program after that.

Walter Ruther said, “It’s no secret that the United Automobile Workers is officially on record of backing a program of national health insurance. And by national health insurance, he meant socialized medicine for every American.

Well, let us see what the socialists themselves have to say about it. They say once the Ferrand bill is passed this nation will be provided with a mechanism for socialized medicine capable of indefinite expansion in every direction until it includes the entire population. Now we can’t say we haven’t been warned.

Now Congressman Ferrand is no longer a Congressman of the United States government. He has been replaced, not in his particular assignment, but in his backing of such a bill by Congressman King of California. It is presented in the idea of a great emergency that millions of our senior citizens are unable to provide needed medical care. But this ignores that fact that in the last decade, 127 million of our citizens, in just 10 years, have come under the protection of some form of privately owned medical or hospital insurance.

Now the advocates of this bill when you try to oppose it challenge you on an emotional basis. They say, “What would you do? Throw these poor people out to die with no medical attention?”

That’s ridiculous and of course no one is advocating it. As a matter of fact, in the last session of Congress a bill was adopted known as the Kerr/Mills bill. Now without even allowing this bill to be tried to see if it works, they have introduced this King bill, which is really the Ferrand bill.

What is the Kerr/Mills bill? It is a frank recognition of the medical need or problem of the senior citizens I have mentioned and it has provided from the federal government, money to the states and the local communities that can be used at the discretion of the state to help those people who need it.

Now what reason could the other people have for backing a bill which says we insist on compulsory health insurance for senior citizens on a basis of age alone regardless of whether they are worth millions of dollars, whether they have an income, whether they are protected by their own insurance, whether they have savings.

I think we can be excused for believing that as ex-congressman Ferrand said, this was simply an excuse to bring about what they wanted all the time — socialized medicine.

James Madison in 1788 speaking to the Virginia convention said, “Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.”

They want to attach this bill to Social Security and they say here is a great insurance program; now instituted, now working.

Let’s take a look at Social Security itself. Again, very few of us disagree with the original premise that there should be some form of savings that would keep destitution from following unemployment by reason of death, disability or old age. And to this end, Social Security was adopted, but it was never intended to supplant private savings, private insurance, pension programs of unions and industries.

Now in our country under our free-enterprise system we have seen medicine reach the greatest heights that it has in any country in the world. Today, the relationship between patient and doctor in this country is something to be envied any place. The privacy, the care that is given to a person, the right to chose a doctor, the right to go from one doctor to the other.

But let’s also look from the other side. The freedom the doctor uses. A doctor would be reluctant to say this. Well, like you, I am only a patient, so I can say it in his behalf. The doctor begins to lose freedoms, it’s like telling a lie. One leads to another. First you decide the doctor can have so many patients. They are equally divided among the various doctors by the government, but then the doctors are equally divided geographically, so a doctor decides he wants to practice in one town and the government has to say to him he can’t live in that town, they already have enough doctors. You have to go some place else. And from here it is only a short step to dictating where he will go.

This is a freedom that I wonder if any of us has a right to take from any human being. I know how I’d feel if you my fellow citizens, decided that to be an actor I had to be a government employee and work in a national theater. Take it into your own occupation or that of your husband. All of us can see what happens once you establish the precedent that the government can determine a man’s working place and his working methods, determine his employment. From here it’s a short step to all the rest of socialism, to determining his pay and pretty soon your son won’t decide when he’s in school where he will go or what he will do for a living. He will wait for the government to tell him where he will go to work and what he will do.

In this country of ours, took place the greatest revolution that has ever taken place in the world’s history; the only true revolution. Every other revolution simply exchanged one set of rulers for another. But here, for the first time in all the thousands of years of man’s relations to man, a little group of men, the founding fathers, for the first time, established the idea that you and I had within ourselves the God given right and ability to determine our own destiny. This freedom was built into our government with safeguards. We talk democracy today, and strangely, we let democracy begin to assume the aspect of majority rule is all that is needed. The “majority rule” is a fine aspect of democracy provided there are guarantees written in to our government concerning the rights of the individual and of the minorities.

What can we do about this? Well, you and I can do a great deal. We can write to our congressmen and to our senators. We can say right now that we want no further encroachment on these individual liberties and freedoms. And at the moment, the key issue is, we do not want socialized medicine.

In Washington today, 40 thousand letters, less than 100 per congressman are evidence of a trend in public thinking.

Representative Hallock of Indiana has said, “When the American people wants something from Congress, regardless of its political complexion, if they make their wants known, Congress does what the people want.”

So write, and if this man writes back to you and tells you that he too is for free enterprise, that we have these great services and so forth, that must be performed by government, don’t let him get away with it.

Show that you have not been convinced. Write a letter right back and tell him that you believe government economy and fiscal responsibility, that you know governments don’t tax to get the money they need; governments will always find a need for the money they get and that you demand the continuation of our free enterprise system.

You and I can do this. The only way we can do it is by writing to our congressmen even we believe that he’s on our side to begin with. Write to strengthen his hand. Give him the ability to stand before his colleagues in Congress and say that he has heard from my constituents and this is what they want. Write those letters now call your friends and them to write.

If you don’t, this program I promise you, will pass just as surely as the sun will come up tomorrow and behind it will come other federal programs that will invade every area of freedom as we have known it in this country until one day as Normal Thomas said we will wake to find that we have socialism, and if you don’t do this and I don’t do this, one of these days we are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children, what it once was like in America when men were free.
