ouch! Dirty fighters. We need some of those on our side for a change. Even if they ARE Hillary people. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. We can't keep coming to the gunfight with knives and expect to survive.

President Obama, Senator Feingold D-WI, and Congressman Barney Frank D-MA are on public record informing us that pending legislation on health care is the foundation of a single payer health care system. Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky D-IL goes even further explaining that a single payer system is designed to put insurance companies out of business. She does not address what will happen to the industry’s 2.3 million workers.
In 1961 president Ronald Reagan, warned Americans against the constant advancement of Socialism in the United States. He reminded us of the observation of Norman Thomas, six time presidential candidate of the Socialist Party, who said that, “Americans would never vote for Socialism, but under the name of Liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.”
Reagan went on to point out that medicine is the traditional method used by Socialists to advance their agenda. It is easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. Most Americans are reluctant to opposing medical care for those who possibly can not afford it.
A single payer system grants government the authority to regulate every aspect of an individual’s health care from conception to death.
H.L. Mencken said, “The urge to save humanity is almost always the false-face for the urge to rule it.”

THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER
This one is a little different...
Two Different Versions...
Two Different Morals
The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away..
Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.
The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!
The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.
CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of theant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
America is stunned by the sharp contrast.
How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?
Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green.'
ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the group singing, “We shall overcome.” Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake.
President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush for the grasshopper's plight.
Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of thegrasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.
The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.
The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn't maintain it.
The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.
The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and once peaceful, neighborhood..
The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2010.

Why is it politically correct to make sure Muslims aren't inconvenienced or put through the airline security horrors, while it's perfectly fine to put the REST OF US through it?? Maybe WE should start issuing fatwas for having to take our shoes off for no good reason...or declaring jihad against the government. Maybe if they are afraid of US, they will treat us with more respect!
Political Correctness is a symptom of mental illness...and stupidity. And it's getting Americans killed daily.

Unlimited support may presage more aggressive action in mortgage marketBy Alistair Barr, MarketWatchSAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- The government's decision to provide unlimited support to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac probably presages more aggressive action to prop up the U.S. housing market.The government may put a mortgage-modification effort, called the Home Affordable Modification Program, or HAMP, into overdrive in coming years, pushing for reductions in the principal outstanding on home loans overseen by Fannie (NYSE:FNM) and Freddie (NYSE:FRE) , Bose George, an analyst at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, wrote in a note to investors Monday.The U.S. Treasury Department said on Christmas Eve that it lifted $200 billion caps on the amount of taxpayer money that can be pumped into the ailing mortgage giants over the next three years.Neither institution is near its $200 billion limit -- Treasury has put $60 billion into Fannie and $51 billion into Freddie since it seized the failing companies in September 2008.However, Treasury said the promise of unlimited government money "should leave no uncertainty about the Treasury's commitment to support these firms as they continue to play a vital role in the housing market during this current crisis."Fannie shares jumped 21% to close at $1.27 on Monday, while Freddie shares soared 27% to $1.60.KBW's George initially found the extra support "perplexing," he said, because Fannie and Freddie are unlikely to need more than $200 billion of government money each.During the depths of the recession in March 2009, the Government Accountability Office estimated that the bailouts of the two companies would cost taxpayers $389 billion, the analyst noted. Since then, house prices have stabilized and have begun to creep up in some areas.Instead, unlimited taxpayer support will give the government "more flexibility in potentially taking more aggressive action to support the housing market," George wrote.It appears that the Commisars/Czars in this administration are planning for a total government against private ownership of real estate here in America. This is VERY DISTURBING!
By Chris Isidore, senior writerDecember 28, 2009: 4:30 PM ETNEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Shares of mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac soared Monday after the Treasury Department announced what essentially amounts to a blank check for their bailouts.Treasury lifted a $200 billion limit on the amount it was ready to pump into each of the two mortgage firms after the markets closed Thursday. Fannie Mae (FNM, Fortune 500) shares leapt 21% Monday to $1.27, while shares of Freddie Mac (FRE, Fortune 500) jumped 27% to $1.60.While the support from Treasury would appear to be a vote of confidence for the firms, the companies' leaders apparently have no interest in owning the stocks themselves...
-American Thinker Blog: Two airplane bomb plotters released from Gitmo
Monday 6:15 am "Fox and Friends" reported that Scotland Yard has warned US intel, that there was a group of 24 more Moslems (Brit citizens), trained in Yemen, Al Quaida linked, prepared to initiate similar attacks, as Umar Farouk Mohammed Ali Baba perpetrated on Christmas day over the state of Michiganistan. Alhough the report and warnings are being reported in the British press it's been blacked out and sanitized here!!!! politics.
On Sunday I listened to Janet openborders Napolitano tell me " Everything went smoothly". After national laughter, on Monday the incompentent bitch tells me the words that came out of her mouth Sunday were taken out of context !!! She must be fired before taxpayers are buying body bags by the gross.
Barry, vacationing, heard the news 3 days after the rest of America, and rushed to the camera to inform us that he'll solve the problem with an investigation, while at the same time the Obamunists are stonewalling Rep Pete Hoeksra, denying his intel committee info on Fort Hood.
Right after 9-11 I incredibly watched House Democrats rush to solve our national security problem, by nationalizing Airport security, increasing their pay ,and mandating unionization while outlawing politically incorrect profiling. Feel safer?
As this administration plays cops and robbers and extends constitutional rights to enemy combatents rather than fight a war against fundamentalist moslems--this perp's been given his right to remain silent and his scheister at our expense. Instead he should be in gitmo, being waterboarded, to discern the identity of the other 24 bombers on the way to our shore.
See article below. Those that trained Umar are former Gitmo prisioners !!! Release the rest of them Barry, to improve our international image. With some luck their target will be [Washington DC]..............GREG
No indication???? The freaking terrorist SAID there are more attacks to come. The Brits have intelligence on 25 more plots. NO INDICATION???? Nocluetano needs to resign.
*hat tip to Dodie (with an improvement by yours truly)
I'd say that Hassan at Fort Hood and Abudllahwhatever on flight 253 beg to differ. The terrorists are always one step ahead of her because she's incompetent. And her response in the case of the most recent attack? ....Instead of keeping these radical Islamists off our planes, is to have us sit quietly with our hands in our laps so any potential bombers won't be able to detonate their explosives. This is the same idiotic mentality that thinks banning guns will prevent criminals from getting them and reduce crime. Absolute MORONS.
I don't even know what to say anymore. It's insane.

-First Case of Highly Drug-Resistant TB Found in US - ABC News
His treatment cost Florida taxpayers an estimated $500,000, a price tag medical director Ashkin says seems like an astronomical amount to spend on someone who's not an American citizen. But he questions how the world can afford not to treat Juarez and others sick with similar lethal strains.
"This is an airborne spread disease ... so when we treat that individual, we're actually treating and protecting all of us," he said. "This is true homeland security."
The HSA plan for your security is to rely on faulty bombs and the bravery of passersby. Don't you feel safer now?
so what else is new?
