Now I'm a Domestic Terrorist?

Because Obama says so...
All 50 States are coordinating in this – as we fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders. (emphasis mine)
You have to head on over to to see the whole thing, but this quote about ME was what caught my eye...

Now, I'll be the first to admit that I'm a proud right-winger. I'm to the right of Dick Cheney.

But now the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES and the Democratic National Committee are calling me a terrorist? ME? Are you freaking kidding me?

Pucker up and kiss my fat white ass.

Peggy Noonan Nails Coffin on Obamacare

When your teenager wrecks the car, you ask, "What happened?". If you got a straight answer -- "I screwed up and took my eyes off of the road" -- you might get mad, but I think you'd be proud that your teen was being honest and taking responsibility for the screw-up. If you got a long-winded answer, something like "Well, you see Dad, it was like this -- I was talking on my iPhone to Joe, and he told me a joke, and I laughed so hard I was crying. Then this car came out of nowhere and I slammed on the brakes..." Your bullshit detector would be beeping loud enough to wake up your Crazy Uncle Ernie from his beer-induced nap on the couch. You get the picture.

Well, Peggy explains why all of our B.S. detectors have been going off lately about Obamacare. The explanations of what's in THE BILL and what's not in THE BILL just make my head hurt. Sounds like a day at the Barnes and Noble when everyone's purchase is setting off the beeper at the door --
And when normal people don't know what the words mean, they don't say to themselves, "I may not understand, but my trusty government surely does, and will treat me and mine with respect." They think, "I can't get what these people are talking about. They must be trying to get one past me (emphasis mine). So I'll vote no."
True. Kinda like the time back during the 70's gas rationing when I tried to explain the empty tank on the car to Mom: "Someone siphoned it out during the night -- yeah, that's it".

Read the whole thing here from The Wall Street Journal.

Secession Without Representation

From Michelle Malkin's site, a reader posts:

American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:

We have stuck together since the late 1950’s, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly,this relationship has run its course.Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

Here is a model separation agreement:
Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.

You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them)…

We’ll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street. You can have your beloved homeless, homeboys, hippies and illegal aliens. We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and rednecks. We’ll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood ..

You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.. You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.

We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values.. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N.. but we will no longer be paying the bill.

We’ll keep the SUVs, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Subaru station wagon you can find.

You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.We’ll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right. We’ll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem. I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute Imagine, I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing, Kum Ba Ya or We Are the World.

We’ll practice trickle down economics and you can give trickle up poverty your best shot. Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our name and our flag.

Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll let you Answer which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

P.S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, Barbara Streisand, & Jane Fonda with you.

Obamacare, Your Doctor and You


Here's some simple math about the new Health Care bill that Comrades Obama, Pelosi, and Reid want to pass. Every person in America will get a physical once a year. If you have private insurance, you'll deal with your own plan. If you don't have insurance, Congress and The White House want to provide you with preventative care. Hey, you can't get much more preventative than an annual check-up.

USA Today says that in 2005 there were 800,000 active physicians in the US. We're turning out about 25,000 new docs per year. And some are retiring every year. USA Today says that roughly each new doctor is matched by a retiring one. Let's assume that 800,000 is about the right number of doctors.

There are 300,000,000 people in the US. Do the math.

300,000,000 people divided by 800,000 doctors is 375 people per doctor.

If we're going to give each person a physical each year, then each and every doctor will have to give roughly 1 physical per day, every day of the year, in order to cover everyone.

300,000,000 physical examinations each year, including blood tests. My last physical was about $200 for the exam, and $300 for the blood work.

300,000,000 exams times $500 each equals $150 billion dollars a year. That's just to get a finger up your...well, you know.
Let's hope they don't charge us extra for the gloves.

But let's get real...many doctors are specialists. They don't do physicals. Family practitioners do "turn your head and cough" exams. CNN says that about 25% of doctors are family practitioners. More math.

800,000 doctors times 25% equals 200,000 family practitioners.

300,000,000 exams divided by 200,000 family practitioners equals 1,500 exams per doctor.

5 works days per week times 50 weeks equals 250 work days per year. (Hey, doctors go on vacations, too.)

1,500 exams per year, per doctor divided by 250 work days equals 6 physicals per doctor per day.

How long did your last physical take? I saw my doctor for about 30 minutes. He's a nice guy, and I'm pretty healthy, so he really didn't need to spend more time with me. The rest of the time I was dealing with a nurse or a physician's assistant. The doc did the finger prod, then came back and told me to lose some weight and, you know, take better care of myself. (I don't smoke. I don't dip Copenhagen like my brother does.)

More math.

6 physicals per day times 30 minutes each equals 180 minutes or 3 hours.

CNN says that 40% of a doctor's time is paperwork.

180 minutes times 40% equals 72 minutes for paperwork.
180 minutes of exam time + 72 minutes for paperwork = 252 minutes per day, or 4 hours and 12 minutes.

That's about half of a workday just to do physicals.

When was the last time you tried to get in to see your doctor for a physical? How far in advance did you have to schedule it? What do you think it will be like to try to get everyone, all of your neighbors, all of your friends, your local cops and fire fighters, an appointment to see your doctor?

Now, let's talk about how many people each year break fingers, toes, collar bones, legs, arms, and ribs. How about when you get a cold or an ear infection or need a stitch or two in your forehead?

Be careful what you wish for, liberals. Because if you can't get in to see your doctor to get your physical, or to get a few stitches, or get a flu shot -- that's called rationing. And I'm not trying to scare anyone. I'm just being realistic. The real numbers are scary enough.

I don't like it...not at all. But it would be a hoot to have my Senator Numbnuts in line behind me at the doc's office. Oh, yeah, this won't apply to them. They have their own "gold-plated coverage". Never mind.

FAIL font from


Doug Elmendorf, the head of the Congressional Budget Office, seems to agree with me...and he's done the cost side of the equation.
“For example, many observers point to cases in which a simple medical test, if given early enough, can reveal a condition that is treatable at a fraction of the cost of treating that same illness after it has progressed. In such cases, an ounce of prevention improves health and reduces spending — for that individual,” Elmendorf wrote. “But when analyzing the effects of preventive care on total spending for health care, it is important to recognize that doctors do not know beforehand which patients are going to develop costly illnesses. To avert one case of acute illness, it is usually necessary to provide preventive care to many patients, most of whom would not have suffered that illness anyway. (emphasis mine) … Researchers who have examined the effects of preventive care generally find that the added costs of widespread use of preventive services tend to exceed the savings from averted illness.”

Townhall Meetings - Not for You

Our chickenshit senator (Sorry, I need to be more precise. We have 2 c.s. senators.)...I'll start over. One of our two chickenshit senators, Herb Kohl, has posted a video online about his stance on healthcare reform. He's too chicken to have a townhall meeting, so he recorded a video. Brave, brave Sir Herbie!

My prediction: The Dems are going to lose the house in the 2010 elections. The American people will not stand for their elected representatives treating us as if we are lemmings. I sure as hell don't want to lose my health insurance.

If the Congress would only say that they would be covered by whatever they create, they'd win in a heartbeat. But of course it would be so crappy, they'd never do it. That issue is the winning one for Conservatives...keep asking Congress if they'll agree to be covered by their creation and it will never pass.

And Herbie? He can go straight to hell.

Pelosi, Nazis, and Symbolism

OK, I'm not going to make this a deeply philosophical post.

Have you heard Pelosi accuse protesters of carrying swastikas? Seriously.

"I think they’re AstroTurf, you be the judge," said Pelosi. "They’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare." - LA Times

Well, what about this?

Rush today compared the Obamacare logo to the Nazi symbol. You be the judge.

US Postal Service bullies Letter Carrier

Over at Patriot Update, they have a story about a letter carrier with 21 years service who is being told he must remove a conservative bumper sticker from the Patriot Depot from his car. Seems that they don't really like conservatives at the Post Office. They say he can't park in the official lot if he keeps the stickers. But he points out that there are Obama stickers on official post office vehicles...hmmm.

I went onto the Postal Service website and got the name of the Postmaster and the address of the Post Office in Grove City, OH where this guy works. I'm going to send a nice but firm letter to the Postmaster there. I know in my town, the Postmaster only manages the front counter, not the letter carrier, so I'm going to ask her if she's the correct person to send the letter to.

Anyway, if you like, here's the address and the name of the Postmaster there. If you write, keep it clean and respectful. Remember, US Postal Inspectors carry guns!

Great News...Quick -- Somebody Tell the Economy!

What a crock.

Many, many folks are in financial trouble because the economy is very slow. As I travel, I see that the heavily taxed states and cities around the country are hurting the most. And places like Texas are still booming (well, if not booming, still growing and creating jobs). The moral of the story is to reduce taxes! DOH.

As the economy turns around, the South will rise faster than the North. We may even have another exodus from Michigan like we had in the 80's when the last big auto downturn happened.

The funny thing is -- Newsweek may be right. But if we get Obamacare...not so much.
