President Obama and Tiger not out of the Woods just yet!

(Oh you couldn't give me a better gift for Christmas! VN8)

10 Tips Obama can take from Tiger

By Jeff Thomas
From Mercury News wire reports

It probably seemed like a good idea at the time. Now? Not so much.

The latest edition of Golf Digest features a Photoshopped cover photo of President Barack Obama and prodigious lady's man Tiger Woods, with a headline that says "10 Tips Obama Can Take From Tiger."


The cover and story, of course, were put together before the ever-expanding parade of young female golf enthusiasts began to describe their relationships with the Jedi master of the fairway.

The story also has its cringey moments, praising Woods as "a good role model because he has always been able to pull himself together after setbacks." We'll see!

According to the article, Obama could benefit from a Woods-like agility with image control, the magazine adding: "Tiger never does anything that would make him ridiculous." Ahem.

Here are the 10 tips. Insert your own jokes:

1. The Quick Recovery

2. The Cold Ferocity

3. How to Step on Their Necks

4. The Trouble with Compromise

5. The Value of a Few Majors

6. Controlling the Message — and Spending

7. The Swing Change

8. Clothes the Deal

9. You've got to Deliver

10. The Danger of Looking Ridiculous

If we forget our past, we are doomed to repeat it . . .

This phrase rings true today as well as any day in history. May we never forget those Americans that served in the US Military on that infamous day. To the brave men and women who serve and protect this Nation, we owe you a debt of gratitude that we can never repay. Thanking you for your service seems to ring hollow, but I do thank you for all of your sacrifices!

This blog is dedicated to Willis Tom Bradshaw Sea2C who gave his life on the USS Juneau on November 13, 1942 in the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal. My oldest brother and sister lost their father that day. It was by brothers fifth birthday. May we never forget that evil exists in this world and we must always be prepared to face it head on. God Bless America!

A U.S. Army cadet reads a book entitled "Kill Bin Laden" as he waits with other cadets for U.S. President Barack Obama to deliver an address on U.S. policy and the war in Afghanistan at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York December 1, 2009. Obama is expected to announce a plan to send 30,000 more U.S. troops to Afghanistan over six months in a bid to beat back the Taliban and bring a quicker end to a costly and unpopular eight-year war.

Poor Anderson Cooper

Anderson Cooper is fading in the ratings.

The respected CNN anchor has seen his numbers slip significantly through the past year. His 10 p.m. show, "Anderson Cooper 360," has declined 62% in total viewers and 70% in adults 25-54 from November 2008, according to Nielsen figures.

Last month, in Cooper's time slot, Fox News' "On the Record" attracted an average viewership of 1.9 million while "360" averaged 672,000; repeats of MSNBC's "Countdown" and HLN's Nancy Grace show averaged 655,000 and 458,000, respectively.

But in the ad-friendly 25-54 demo, those same repeats won out over Cooper with 224,000 (MSNBC) and 214,000 (HLN).

Cooper -- who became an overnight sensation during his Hurricane Katrina coverage -- surely deserves better ratings. From the start of 2009, he began losing a huge chunk of his nightly audience.

So what happened? Let's see: There's no presidential election to ramp up ratings; there's heavy competition from centrist CNN's noisier rivals (see: Fox News, the No. 1 cable news channel); there's people catching up on DVR-ed TV shows in the late evening; then there's the loss of Lou Dobbs in the 7 p.m. anchor chair, among other possible factors.

Work those blue eyes, Coop!

(Surprise, surprise, FOX NEWS is kicking some butt again! VN8)

Presidential Proclamation: President George Washington

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to "recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:"

Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interposition's of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the 3d day of October, A.D. 1789

(May each of us remember where we are going, where we have been and be thankful for all those along the way that have helped us get there! Happy Thanksgiving! I'll be back! VN8)

The Boogey Man Is Out There!

OK, the Great One, our current President and the leading democrats are probably getting what they asked for. Don't waterboard, it's torture, close down Guantanamo, release the prisoners, question every move of the CIA, next thing you know the Department of Justice will be investigating themselves, but let me just say this, the boogey man is out there! If you don't believe me, read it for yourselves! The Islamofascist are out there and they either want you to convert or they want to destroy you at all cost. They are converting from within, specifically within our prison system.

Illinois man charged in plot to bomb federal offices.

Man arrested in alleged attempt to bomb Dallas skyscraper.

U.S. terror suspects accused of targeting Marine base.

On Wednesday, a SEPTA cashier told officers about a man taking pictures at the Lombard-South station, but the man, after being questioned by the cashier about his activities, left before officers arrived.

Now I don't know about you, but personally, I say let's get them before they get us. I don't think the terrorists want to sit down and talk about options and even if they did, the only options we should have to offer them is a one way trip to hell! I say let's all have the intestinal fortitude that Benjamin Netanyahu had when he addressed the United Nations and tell these crazy bastards where to get off.

Oh the liberal press is loving all the cozying up to Chavez (Larry "the" King) interviewed him tonight, I almost puked and then let's don't forget Ahmadinejad or yesterday Momar Kadafi! What is it with this love of these dictators and despots?! We saw it when the terrorist Yasser Arafat died, I thought the MSM was going to fall all over themselves and let's not forget President Jimmy Carter's reaction. (May we never forget the Israeli athletes of the 1972 Olympic Games!)

Let me be clear, I haven't blogged in almost two weeks and this is going to be rambling rant, if it walks like a terrorist and it smells like a terrorist and it looks like a terrorist and it talks like a terrorist, it's probably a freaking terrorist! Oh, Vice President Biden was correct about one thing, President Obama is going to be tested alright! The terrorist are setting it all up, we've weakened our internal intelligence and we are ripe for the picking. We are being seen all over the world as weak and when you lily white liberals see what I hope doesn't happen, happens, don't come crying to the true Patriots of this Country crying about why the big bad government didn't try to protect all of us! Cry me a river!

Wake up people, there are Islamist out there that want to exterminate Americans! Be alert. I wish Benjamin Netanyahu was my President! Yeah, I said it, you are entitled to my opinion!

Oh and one more thing, I've missed so much the past few days, Michael Moore, capitalist hater that you are, YOU ARE A FREAK OF NATURE!

Miracles will never cease to happen!

Well I have a lot to do to get my machine up and running but at least I'm one step further to getting back to our Country's business and blogging about it. After two weeks, I have a lot to catch up on! Check back soon, the blogs will be coming! VN8

Oh you just have to love them over at Democratic Undergound! "Levtist Agitator" wants to "boycott" Republicans! This one is hysterical, read it for yourself. VN8

Leftist Agitator Mon Sep-07-09 12:23 AM
Original message
A proposal: Boycott Republicans.

I don't mean just boycotting businesses who advertise on Faux, I don't mean just boycotting rightist owned businesses, I mean to suggest that we collectively boycott ALL Republicans on a personal level.

If there is a Republican in your life, refuse to conduct any economic transaction with them. In fact, if possible, do not speak to them at all. Let them know why you have broken off all contact, as your average Republican is too stupid to figure things out for him or herself.

If they want to let the crazies run their Party, that's fine. The Republicans are only about 30% of the population of this country, and the REAL crazies are even less than that. Let's see how they manage if the 40% or so of Democrats refuse to have anything to do with them. They can't run the country on their own, hell, even with the cooperation of the Democrats, they still couldn't run the country under Bush. If we collectively refuse to enable them, if we force them to realize that they need us more than we need them, they will either get their Party in order (which is doubtful) or they will cease to be relevant in the slightest.

Another one bites the dust! Van Jones resigns!

Obama adviser Van Jones resigns amid controversy

AP) – 13 minutes ago

WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama's adviser Van Jones is resigning amid controversy over past inflammatory statements.

Van Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly "green jobs," is linked to efforts suggesting a governmental role in the 2001 terror attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.

Jones issued an apology on Thursday. When asked the next day whether Obama still had confidence in him, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said only that Jones "continues to work in the administration."

The White House issued a statement early Sunday saying Jones had quit the administration.

(What an opportunist! You make Rev. Al Sharpton look like a pansy! You are the racist and the kind of person that divides this Country. Yeah, I said it and you are entitled to my opinion! Good riddance! VN8)

PS This is how intelligent they are over at Democratic Underground, this was one comment on the resignation of Van Jones:

Democratic Underground!

The liberals are turning inside out! I just found this post today, read it and ENJOY!

On January 20 of this very year - we were united, hopeful, and ready. We had gotten together behind a man who told us about hope, and change, and the type of future John Denver used to sing about. America would be different. We had a leader with vision, and strength - who told the truth and would take advantage of the huge majorities liberal and progressive American worked so hard to deliver.

And now? It's Bush;s 3rd term:

" If Bush were in his third term, we would already have seen him propose, yet again, the largest military budget in the history of the world. We might well have seen him pretend he was including war funding in the standard budget, and then claim that one final supplemental war budget was still needed, immediately after which he would surely announce that yet another war supplemental bill would be needed down the road. And of course, he would have held onto his Secretary of Defense from his second term, Robert Gates, to run the Pentagon, keep our ongoing wars rolling along, and oversee the better part of our public budget.

Bush would undoubtedly be following through on the agreement he signed with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki for all U.S. troops to leave Iraq by the end of 2011 (except where he chose not to follow through). His generals would, in the meantime, be leaking word that the United States never intended to actually leave. He'd surely be maintaining current levels of troops in Iraq, while sending thousands more troops to Afghanistan and talking about a new "surge" there. He'd probably also be escalating the campaign he launched late in his second term to use drone aircraft to illegally and repeatedly strike into Pakistan's tribal borderlands with Afghanistan.

If Bush were still "the decider" he'd be employing mercenaries like Blackwater and propagandists like the Rendon Group and he might even be expanding the number of private security contractors in Afghanistan. In fact, the whole executive branch would be packed with disreputable corporate executive types. You'd have somebody like John ("May I torture this one some more, please?") Rizzo still serving, at least for a while, as general counsel at the CIA. The White House and Justice Department would be crawling with corporate cronies, people like John Brennan, Greg Craig, James Jones, and Eric Holder. Most of the top prosecutors hired at the Department of Justice for political purposes would still be on the job. And political prisoners, like former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman and former top Democratic donor Paul Minor would still be abandoned to their fate.

In addition, the bank bailouts Bush and his economic team initiated in his second term would still be rolling along -- with a similar crowd of people running the show. Ben Bernanke, for instance, would certainly have been reappointed to run the Fed. And Bush's third term would have guaranteed that there would be none of the monkeying around with the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that the Democrats proposed or promised in their losing presidential campaign. At this point in Bush's third term, no significant new effort would have begun to restore Katrina-decimated New Orleans either."

... ...

Mr. Obama bears ALL the responsibility for this. No, its not us who refuse to overlook what he has done and not done. It's him.

And on the 12th of November, we will certainly see some more selling out - when we hear his joint address to congress on health care.

Well, folks, I supported Hillary. I was told her what an ass I was - that Obama was the real deal. And I actually bought it! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

No more. I am looking now for a primary challenge to Mr. Obama. Now, of course let me heat it:

-give him more time!
-he is doing all he can!
-this is part of a secret plan, only our wiser pols can understand.

I'm a Dem - and Mr. Obama is moving our party away from me. I am gonna work to take it back - again,

(OK, if this wasn't serious, it would be funny! How many times have I been out in public and wondered if kids are event taught any manners or discipline these days? I will tell you what has worked overwhelmingly for me is the "evil eye". When the parents aren't looking I give the misbehaving child the "evil eye" that my Mom always gave me and that pretty much nips it in the bud every time. Children know when they are misbehaving most of the time, they just aren't given any direction in my opinion. Restaurants are the absolute worst. I've actually asked to be moved to another table when there are children acting out and when being seated if I'm being directed towards a table where there are children close by, I always ask to be seated somewhere else. On the other hand, many times I have observed well behaved children and have gone over to their table to express to their parents how well behaved their children are, what are your experiences? VN8)

Docs to Watch for Guillain-Barré After H1N1 Vaccine

Neurologists should be on the lookout for any signs of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) in people vaccinated against H1N1 swine flu, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Neurology announced Monday.

Experts do not expect the 2009 H1N1 vaccine to increase risk of the rare disorder, but are acting out "an abundance of caution," according to a news release from the American Academy of Neurology. Because of its association with the 1976 swine flu vaccine, GBS could be of greater concern with any pandemic vaccine, the release said.

"The active participation of neurologists is going to be critical for monitoring for any possible increase in GBS following 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccination," said Dr. Orly Avitzur, who is directing the AAN effort. The request comes as part of the CDC's national vaccine safety monitoring campaign.

The H1N1 vaccine is still in production. Officials expect that vaccination of high-risk groups -- including health-care workers, infants, children and young adults ages 6 months through 24 years, pregnant women and adults with underlying health conditions -- will start this fall.

In GBS, the body's immune system attacks part of the peripheral nervous system, causing tingling and weakness in the extremities. It is usually, but not always, treatable.

Neurologists and other health-care professionals should use the CDC and FDA Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System to report any post-vaccination adverse events, the announcement said.

(OK, I'm not trying to cause widespread panic, just healthy food for thought. Before you allow a foreign virus into your body that CANNOT be removed, "out of an abundance of caution" think about the long term effects. In preparation, I think I'm going to get a prescription of Tamiflu to have on hand just in case. I had the flu about five years ago and it's a miracle drug. Only side affect it has turned me into a raving right wing tea bagger,in my opinion, not a bad thing! I came very close in 1959 of being a victim of Thalidomide and I am very careful about their claims of anything being safe! VN8)

Teddy has left the building . . .

Well today was like a train wreck, I turned on the TV and started watching the funeral of Senator Ted Kennedy. I took some breaks from time to time, but always came back to see what was happening next. I had heard on one of the broadcasts that Teddy had played an integral part in planning today's events. Well it started early and it ended at Arlington after dark. The funeral was as long as Teddy's ego was large. I thought it would never end, thank goodness I took some anti nausea medication early!

At Arlington, the long awaited answer to what Kennedy had written in a letter to the Pope that was delivered by President Barack Hussein Obama back during the summer. He wrote the following to the Pope:

"I have always tried to be a faithful Catholic... and though I have fallen short through human failings, I've never failed to believe and respect the fundamental teachings of my faith."

Kennedy continued to say that he was:

"committed to do everything (he could) to achieve access to health care for everyone. "This has been the political cause of my life."

OK, that's great, now you have been absolved, I have been waiting my entire life to understand why you were such a die hard socialist, now I know. Through your lifelong "works" you are trying to right your human failings. Next time around Senator, do us all a favor, publicly apologize for any indiscretion that comes to light. Americans are a forgiving people, we love to forgive and spare us all from the rhetoric of your fight for "human rights".

Did Mary Jo Kopechne deserve simple "human rights" as she drowned? Did the women that you abused deserve "human rights". Did the waitress at Washington’s La Brasserie deserve simple "human rights"?

Numerous times today, the media stated that the halls of the Senate would never be the same. To that I say Thank God!

To the family, for their loss, I offer my condolences. To the American people I say, Teddy has left the building and we should all be thankful. Hopefully this is an end of an ERA. Hopefully it's the beginning of a new ERA, and ERA where the American people, We The People take back what is ours.

No to ObamaCare, No to KennedyCare.

I'm certain that Senator Kennedy received the finest health care he could afford while battling his disease. Poor Mary Jo Kopechne didn't even deserve to receive Emergency Medical Service and Senator Kennedy and President Obama think they know what is best for Americans? In the infamous words of John Stossel, "Give me a break!"

Yeah, I said it and you are entitled to my opinion! VN8

As a side note, I've surfed the internet a lot today and this is no reflection on Senator Kennedy, but it is a disgrace what the Kennedy family did after the Patriarch of their family, Joseph Kennedy had a lobotomy performed on his daughter, Senator Kennedy's sister, Rose Marie Kennedy (September 13, 1918 – January 7, 2005). If you are not familiar with this tragedy, do a little research and get a box of tissues. It is pathetic! If this is the type of healthcare we have coming down the pike or a reflection of "death panels", we are all going to be writing letters to the POPE!

Oh and one more thing, you know the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, Senator Kennedy's father was an anti-Semite, read it for yourself:

Kennedy was (for a while) a close friend with the leading Jewish lawyer Felix Frankfurter, who helped Kennedy get his sons into the London School of Economics, where they worked with Harold Laski, a leading Jewish intellectual and prominent socialist. While holding positive attitudes towards individual Jews, Kennedy's views of the Jews as a people were, by his own admission, overwhelmingly negative.

According to Harvey Klemmer, who served as one of Kennedy's embassy aides, Kennedy habitually referred to Jews as "kikes or sheenies." Kennedy allegedly told Klemmer that "[some] individual Jews are all right, Harvey, but as a race they stink. They spoil everything they touch." When Klemmer returned from a trip to Germany and reported the pattern of vandalism and assault on Jews by Nazis, Kennedy responded, "Well, they brought it on themselves."

Charlie Cook: Dem situation has 'slipped completely out of control'

Charlie Cook, one of the best political handicappers in the business, sent out a special update to Cook Political Report subscribers Thursday that should send shivers down Democratic spines.

Reviewing recent polling and the 2010 election landscape, Cook can envision a scenario in which Democratic House losses could exceed 20 seats.

"These data confirm anecdotal evidence, and our own view, that the situation this summer has slipped completely out of control for President Obama and Congressional Democrats. Today, The Cook Political Report’s Congressional election model, based on individual races, is pointing toward a net Democratic loss of between six and 12 seats, but our sense, factoring in macro-political dynamics is that this is far too low," he wrote.

"Many veteran Congressional election watchers, including Democratic ones, report an eerie sense of déjà vu, with a consensus forming that the chances of Democratic losses going higher than 20 seats is just as good as the chances of Democratic losses going lower than 20 seats."

Cook scrupulously avoided any mention that Democratic control of the House is in jeopardy but, noting a new Gallup poll showing Congress’ job disapproval at 70 percent among independents, concluded that the post-recess environment could feel considerably different than when Congress left in August.

"We believe it would be a mistake to underestimate the impact that this mood will have on Members of Congress of both parties when they return to Washington in September, if it persists through the end of the Congressional recess."

I just heard the private jet is being provided by Momar Khadafi. Yeah, you heard that correctly. Terrorists around the world must be celebrating. When we do not remember the past, we are doomed to repeat it! VN8

The following is a poem by a mother who lost her only son aboard Pan Am Flight 103:

A Mothers Thoughts by Beulah McKee

How many times can a Mothers heart be broken?
How many tears can a Mother shed?
How much love as yet unspoken
Can never be said?

It was four days until Christms
Everywhere carols could be heard
The day a "terrorist bomb"
Brought down the "mechanical bird".

Two hundred fifty-nine bodies rained down
There were eleven more dead on the ground
And parts of the plane "Pan Am 103"
All scattered over the town of Lockerbie.

Devastation and havoc was everywhere
Folks in the town looked around with despair
Asking the inevitable "why"
Was it really time for so many people to die?

They did not understand
It was to have occurred over the ocean, not over the land
Leaving evidence hard to find
For those with only that on their mind.

To find those that were guilty
We knew would take time
Now two men in Libya
Have been charged with the crime.

It's been over eight years
Justice has yet to be done
Of the many who are waiting
I'm only one.

So I grow ever older
Will an ending come late?
I can't help but wonder
As I just sit and wait, and wait.

With my heart that's been broken
With the tears I still shed
With the love still unspoken
For my only son, who is dead.

August 18, 2009

Legislators will correctly perceive that either raising taxes or cutting expenditures will threaten their re-election. To avoid this fate, they can opt for high rates of inflation, which never require a recorded vote and cannot be attributed to a specific action that any elected official takes. In fact, John Maynard Keynes long ago laid out a road map for political survival amid an economic disaster of just this sort:
“By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens....
The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”

I want to emphasize that there is nothing evil or destructive in an increase in debt that is proportional to an increase in income or assets. As the resources of individuals, corporations and countries grow, each can handle more debt. The United States remains by far the most prosperous country on earth, and its debt-carrying capacity will grow in the future just as it has in the past.

Evil capitalism at work!

What do two of these have in common?

UPS and FedEx are supported through evil capitalism, the third, the United States Postal Service is subsidized by you "the taxpayer" and they still can't turn a profit and the President is trying to convince us that the "government" can run Health Care? Wake up America, every "government" program that we create is a disaster. President Obama, you are losing any credibility you had. VN8

Obama Goes Postal, Lands in Dead-Letter Office: Caroline Baum

Aug. 18 (Bloomberg) -- “UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. It’s the Post Office that’s always having problems.” -- Barack Obama, Aug. 11, 2009

No institution has been the butt of more government- inefficiency jokes than the U.S. Postal Service. Maybe the Department of Motor Vehicles.

The only way the post office can stay in business is its government subsidy. The USPS lost $2.4 billion in the quarter ended in June and projects a net loss of $7 billion in fiscal 2009, outstanding debt of more than $10 billion and a cash shortfall of $1 billion. It was moved to intensive care -- the Government Accountability Office’s list of “high risk” cases - - last month and told to shape up. (It must be the only entity that hasn’t cashed in on TARP!)

That didn’t stop President Barack Obama from holding up the post office as an example at a town hall meeting in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, last week.

When Obama compared the post office to UPS and FedEx, he was clearly hoping to assuage voter concerns about a public health-care option undercutting and eliminating private insurance.

What he did instead was conjure up visions of long lines and interminable waits. Why do we need or want a health-care system that works like the post office?

What’s more, if the USPS is struggling to compete with private companies, as Obama implied, why introduce a government health-care option that would operate at the same disadvantage?

Obama Unscripted

These are just two of the questions someone listening to the president’s health-insurance reform roadshow might want to ask.

Impromptu Obamanomics is getting scarier by the day. For all the president’s touted intelligence, his un-teleprompted comments reveal a basic misunderstanding of capitalist principles.

For example, asked at the Portsmouth town hall how private insurance companies can compete with the government, the president said the following:

“If the private insurance companies are providing a good bargain, and if the public option has to be self-sustaining -- meaning taxpayers aren’t subsidizing it, but it has to run on charging premiums and providing good services and a good network of doctors, just like any other private insurer would do -- then I think private insurers should be able to compete.”

Self-sustaining? The public option? What has Obama been doing during those daily 40-minute economic briefings coordinated by uber-economic-adviser, Larry Summers?

Capitalism Explained

Government programs aren’t self-sustaining by definition. They’re subsidized by the taxpayer. If they were self-financed, we’d be off the hook.

Llewellyn Rockwell Jr., chairman of the Ludwig von Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama, and editor of, put it this way in an Aug. 13 commentary on

“The only reason for a government service is precisely to provide financial support for an operation that is otherwise unsustainable, or else there would be no point in the government’s involvement at all.”

Rockwell sees no “economic reason for a government postal system” and would abolish it.

Of course, there’s the small matter of the U.S. Constitution. Article 1, Section 8, grants Congress the power “to establish Post Offices and Post Roads.” A series of subsequent statutes gave the USPS a monopoly in the delivery of first-class mail. Congress thought that without such protection, private carriers would cherry-pick the high-profit routes and leave money-losing deliveries in remote areas to the post office. (In those days, the USPS covered most of its expenses with revenue.)

Less Bad Option

It was only through exemptions in the law that private carriers, such as UPS and FedEx, were allowed to compete in the delivery of overnight mail.

Short of a constitutional amendment or a waiver from Congress, we are stuck with the USPS.

But back to our storyline. Everyone makes a mistake or flubs a line when asked questions on the spot, including the president of the United States. We can overlook run-on sentences, subject and verb tense disagreement, even a memory lapse when it comes to facts and figures.

The proliferation of Obama’s gaffes and non sequiturs on health care has exceeded the allowable limit. He has failed repeatedly to explain how the government will provide more (health care) for less (money). He has failed to explain why increased demand for medical services without a concomitant increase in supply won’t lead to rationing by government bureaucrats as opposed to the market. And he has failed to explain why a Medicare-like model is desirable when Medicare itself is going broke.

The public is left with one of two unsettling conclusions: Either the president doesn’t understand the health-insurance reform plans working their way through Congress, or he understands both the plans and the implications and is being untruthful about the impact.

Neither option is good; ignorance is clearly preferable to the alternative.

Robert Novak dies at 78

"Always love your country, but never trust your government."
Robert Novak, a giant in American journalism.
February 26, 1931- August 18, 2009

Novak was a registered Democrat despite his conservative political views. He held more centrist views in his early career, and he supported the Democratic presidential candidacies of John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, of whom he was a friend.[9]

Novak tended toward low-tax, small-government libertarian views, but his disagreements with mainstream Republicans and neoconservatives—specifically his opposition to the Iraq War[10]—have earned him the label of being a "paleoconservative". In July 2007 Novak expressed support for Ron Paul's bid for the presidency.[11]

Raised Jewish, Novak was introduced to Catholicism when his friend, Jeffrey Bell, Republican political consultant and former Reagan aide, gave him some books on the Catholic faith.[12] Novak converted to Roman Catholicism in 1998,[13] after meeting Peter Vaghi, whom he had known before Vaghi switched from politics to the priesthood.

(Robert Novak was all over the political and religious map but I liked his honesty. I may not always agree with someone, but honesty is always a plus, it is what trust is based upon! RIP VN8)

Wonder how the MSM is going to handle this one?

"Uncle Tom sell out carries semi automatic carbine to Town Hall meeting."

CNN Sanchez just doesn't know what direction to take on this video! They are talking about a guy who was carrying a gun and showing a video of another guy that the reporter wasn't even talking about!

Watching this in the media is going to be good. They can't attack him for being white, but they can attack him for carrying a weapon, but how could a black man oppose the messiah? Yep, pop some popcorn, this guys going to be on all the talking head shows!

This isn't about race, this is about FREEDOM, freedom to speak, freedome to carry! VN8

America's Healthcare Town Hall/ Atlanta, GA

Well Conservative Scalawag and I went to a America's Town Hall today and we had a blast. It was great to be with fellow Patriots who believe that this is all about Freedom! Herman Cain and Dick Armey were awesome!

I was the lucky one to be interviewed by the Atlanta Journal (Constipation) sorry, Constitution! Check the story on-line, I guess that's as close as I'll get to my 10 minutes of fame! Apparently my protest poster drew their eye:

They asked the ususal, what is your name, what do you do for a living and then they why are you here? Fortunately, before attending the event, I envisioned what I would do if anyone asked me that question because I am so passionate about "our" freedom that I am passionate in communicating my feelings! So I said as plain as I could that I wouldn't ever go to my neighbor and ask them to pay for my health care and I certainly didn't want the government to steal from my neighbor to pay for my health care. He said that's interesting, blah, blah, blah. He seemed very interested and polite, but you know you are always wondering if they are being polite to get the "wacko" story! LOL I have no idea if it will appear in the paper or in a blog on-line but it was fun! I'll keep you posted if Conservative Scalawag and I ever find a link on line.

If you haven't had an opportunity to go to a Tea Party or a Town Hall meeting, please exercise your right to be seen, be heard and be counted! Be loud, be proud, WE WILL NOT BE QUIET!

Here's a link to my Picasa Album, there's 99 photos but they are all worth your viewing!

Emily Post's Rules of Engagement:

Michelle Malkin :
The Etiquette Czar's Rules for Patriotic Protest
by Michelle Malkin

The White House press office is now Miss Manners' office. President Obama's press secretary, Robert Gibbs, took to the television airwaves this week to criticize congressional town hall protesters for "yelling." Gibbs' underling, Bill Burton, chastised voters not to "disrupt" and "scream." Instead, he advised America to engage in a "spirited debate about health care, a real vigorous conversation about it."

What constitutes "spirited"? How do they define "vigorous"? When does forceful dissent become intolerable disruption? Herewith, the Obama Etiquette Czar's Official Rules for Patriotic Protest. Keep this guide with you at all times to avoid being flagged by the Democratic politeness monitors.

-- No shouting. Congressional representatives cannot sell Obamacare with mobs of unruly senior citizens and small-business owners interrupting to press them on specific sections of the bill. Limit your objections to a library whisper and only challenge your lawmakers with hushed, dulcet tones. Otherwise, you will scare them, and they will be forced to hide behind teleconference calls, sick children at hospitals or union bosses.

If, on the other hand, you are attending a presidential town hall to show your affection and approbation, "spirited" chanting is acceptable.



Also permitted: Shouting at historic inaugurations to protest war (as legions of Code Pink activists did in 2005 during the president's address) and shouting, "We didn't cross the borders, the borders crossed us!" to protest immigration enforcement (as thousands of illegal alien supporters did during raucous rallies in 2006).

Do refrain from boisterous shrieking against those who accuse you of lacking patriotism -- unless you are Hillary Clinton, who bellowed at the top of her lungs in 2003:

"I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration."

-- No laughing. Snickering at proponents of nationalized health care is rude, bordering on political terrorism. Stifle all derisive chuckling at bogus statistics and denials that Obamacare will lead to long lines and rationed care. That would be "evil-mongering," as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid put it on Thursday.

If, however, you are a member of Congress confronted with silly questions about whether you have read the bill, feel free to giggle. For tips on executing acceptable levels of cackling, take a cue from House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. "If every member pledged to not vote for it if they hadn't read it in its entirety, I think we would have very few votes," Hoyer told while choking back laughter after a recent news conference. "I'm laughing because a) I don't know how long this bill is going to be, but it's going to be a very long bill." Tee-hee-hee.

-- No Nazi comparisons. References to fascism are ugly and un-American. Swastikas have no place in debates about nationalizing 20 percent of the economy. Swastikas may, however, still be used as substitutes for the "S" in "BusHitler" and tattoos on the forehead of Darth Cheney.

-- No boorish questions. "Real vigorous conversation" requires town hall attendees to formulate queries that will encourage true debate. This is not the time to ask why Congress won't subject itself to the health mandates it wants to foist on every other American. This is not the time to ask how the White House will pay for the massive Obamacare bureaucracy without raising taxes on the middle class. The White House endorsed model citizen questioning at its East Room health care town halls in March and July, including this:

"Hi, Mr. President. I'm a member of SEIU, and I'm down here in Fairfax County working on Change That Works. What can I do, as a member of the union, to help you with your reform bill?"

-- No mean signs. That 11-year-old daughter of a Massachusetts Obama donor and campaigner who was randomly chosen to criticize the scary posters held up by town hall protesters in New Hampshire was right. "Mean" signs are, well, mean. Never mind the placards that blared "Bush is the only dope worth shooting" in Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco and the assassination art depicting former President Bush with a gun to his head in Chicago. "Obama is a socialist" is a sign too far and cannot be tolerated in a civil society. Period.

Instead, print out the "STAND UP FOR HEALTH REFORM" signs helpfully produced by Obama's Organizing for America, and burn your "Don't Tread on Me" flags. Such rebellious sentiments are dangerous incitements to violence.

To those of you who can't abide by The Rules: Shhhhhhhhh.

NaziCare: You decide!

This is odd, what a comparison of emblems! Whose carrying the swastika now Congresswoman Pelosi? I stole it from Fuzzy's Dad aka MusingsofaVastRight-Winger who stole it from InAHandBasket, what would I do without you fellow Patriots!

RIP Gipper, we miss you more than we ever imagined that we could! Please tell the Big Guy, we are finally waking up and can only pray that he will continue to have mercy on our Country for being apathetic! We are coming out of a deep sleep, taking a look around and not recognizing hardly anything we can see, but awake we are and we are mad as Hell for allowing this to happen to this great Nation! Intercede for us and we will make you proud!

Go FLAG Yourself!

I'm going to flag myself everyday until, well who knows, but I challenge you to flag yourself too!

Are you in favor of government run healthcare?

This was a poll I took on FaceBook, it's pretty telling!

31,234 - 18.67%

131,918 - 78.86%

4,387 - 2.62%

I'm not sure what the statistics of the average age of user on FACEBOOK, but it is probably a higher percentage of young users on FACEBOOK! It's not just the boomers who aren't in favor of Government Run Health Care! That's what I'm thinking.
