All know I’m a fan of free speech. Yet I’m first to use my free speech rights to point out those who call “fire” in a crowded theater, obviously hoping for some real life theatrics…

We all know it is illegal to call “Fire” when there is none in a crowded theater…. So in the battle between free speech and calling “Fire” in a crowded theater, where does Fox News fit in….

Because that is all they do….

In politics (as I know kooks on both sides), crazies play a valuable role… For one, they are ever watchful of the other side. Rarely will anything get past either one side or the other… And we, the citizens who wake up, drive the nation’s economic engine, come home eat, and sleep, don’t have to worry over every little thing…

Fox has seriously helped the right. They have given the right a platform which it didn’t have. After all, facts always have a leftest bias. Though that sounds political to neophytes, it tends to be true…..

Is tobacco healthy? No.
Do women enjoy rape? No.
Does a woman’s biology destroy all incoming sperm when raped, thereby preventing pregnancy? No
Are blacks more stupid than whites? No.
Was the world created in 6, 24 hour days? No.
Is man made global warming made up? No…

Facts have a liberal bias, which is why, to ingratiate themselves with a conservative public, the producers at Fox News have to distort all facts to keep up their charade… Now there is no rule on requiring every American to tell everything factually and honestly. If that premise were so, for one, there would be no divorce courts… Likewise, literature which is the art of embellishment where points are assessed for cleverness on how well certain planks are told, could not exist.

So it is hard to say that Fox News should be held to any different standard than say, I for example… But there is that pesky adage saying that one cannot cry “Fire” in a crowded theater, causing dangerous panic when there is no threat…..

And that is where I’m beginning to think Fox News has crossed that line…

Two things triggered this… and trust me, when it comes to possibly misinterpreting the Constitution I’m very slow to be triggered…

And another was this….

The truth is, it’s the protesters who should have been rounded up. Blame my upbringing as the son of a cop, but where I come from, if you block a federal law enforcement vehicle and use mob rule to interfere with law enforcement officers, they handcuff you and toss you in a cell.

The American precedent for the first video featuring the protester’s action, was set by the residents in Boston, I believe resulting in 5 deaths, including one black man. Without which, we may literally have not become a nation, understanding the way that event rippled its way into our Revolutionary War …. It is both rebellion, and yet is protected under the first amendment.

The precedent for the sentiment expressed in the second item, came from George Washington himself. who as president, called the army together from various militias near DC, appointed himself as its head, and led them on his white horse up into western Pennsylvania, where a similar hick army, copied almost exactly like the TEA PARTY today, was engaged in protesting Congress’s levies on their whiskey pretty similar to those dummies protesting the $1 million owed by the Bundy farm….

The question is really this… Which type of America do the majority of the rest of us want? One run by kooks to whom the government has to kowtow, and acquiesce in its every response,… or one run by regular people appreciative of law and order and appeals and all that stuff that makes America run…

Well. Which of these two do you want? After all, you ARE America.

Fox News cheer leads the first. Nowhere does it mention that these are homeless kids on a bus, kids whose parents paid smugglers (the kids don’t have money), kids who had no choice (mom, I don’t want to go), no independence, kids caught up in a massive political and international crises way beyond their understanding….

I hail the second. It is sickening to see Americans so callous over any children’s plight, that they think is it cool to block and intimidate little kids from being reprocessed and sent home… to revel in their prejudice, look we’re da’ boss, look how tough we are, we can stop a bus of little kids; and shout… USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA, USA……

Personally I’m embarrassed. Just like when I shit and see this big long black thing curled up in the toilet. Shudder. Shudder. Yes, I know it is part of life’s process, .. doesn’t mean I’m proud of it….

But for people to actually hold such their excrement in their hands, up high, proud of it? Shouting USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA…. can only come because someone is encouraging it… I’ve been around people for years.. KKK meetings in the 50’s were like that… But they were people encouraged by Grand Dragon. They were nice people outside the meetings… Likewise the pre-teen German kids at the Nuremberg rallies… they grew up as nice kids, but someone exploited and encouraged them…

Do you know why those children were on the bus? Not the immediate reason, but the overall big reason? They were there for the exact same reason relatives of mine died… because of what the USA represents… They were sent here, because outside our borders, the USA represents opportunity. It represents freedom. It represents right over wrong. It represents good people governing themselves for what is best for them….

Good people sometimes will do bad things if pushed hard enough… The photographer was good. Watching the video I sensed a sincerity in those people waving signs who really thought they were doing America a favor by stopping homeless little children from entering their town…. Who does that? I can only believe the real culprit is not them, but should instead, be that person lying to them. cajoling them, egging them on, rewarding their bad behavior, pushing them foreward… Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it…

We are being judged around the world by this disgusting video… Little kids… barred by a rebellion of fat slobs in American flag shirts yelling: USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA,……

I only ask two things… One is to the world judging us… “Look” I say to them… “We don’t judge you by your shit, if we happen to come across it, say if you forgot to flush”…. “Don’t judge us for ours”….

And two, is: America, we’ve got to do something about Fox News… They are protected under the 1st Amendment (and should be) so even I think it is wrong for our government to interfere with what they say…We cannot start that precedent. But there are 315 million of us, and there is nothing wrong with us taking this fight into our own hands, outside of government…. We can bankrupt them. We have that power….

This is a human thing, not partisan. Certainly not democratic. This is disgust at how low Fox News has brought America by willfully withholding proper facts, and subsequently creating huge crises out of nothing…..

“Americans Unite! That Crazy Black President Is Now Busing “Criminals” INTO YOUR BEDROOM COMMUNITIES! FIGHT THEM. FIGHT THEM NOW!…. ” is pretty similar to yelling “Fire” in a crowded theater… Criminals? Because their parents put them on a bus? Deportation centers? Same as your bed room? Crazy Black President? Yeah, that one who’s doing His job while no Republican is doing theirs?

I think there is enough evidence to say they are doing more than stirring the pot…. There is more volatility now than in the 00’s. the 90’s, the 80’s… Flush Rush, has led the way teaching us exactly how to do it… Fox News doesn’t need to suffer total catastrophic damage to force change. In the corporate environment, just a tiny loss of 1% can cause executives to face life changing decisions caused by their stockholders… There are 315 million of us… We can do 1%….

I know somebody out there reading this watches the Fox Morning Show… All they need to do is write down or lift video of who advertised and then post it daily… Monday through Friday…

These are the FOX blacklisted advertisers today…. It would be helpful if a contact twitter address was added… Then we all tweet the corporate site of the product paying to be on Fox.

“Oh, my, goodness, Boycott this product: ________ It paid to be on Fox’s morning show!!!….”

Now one or two messages won’t do it… but a 1000 will get a twitter monitor’s attention. “Hey boss, check this out”… But it can’t stop there, we all need to be involved. Remember, there are 315 million of us… Help us If we are ever going to get our America back, we have to get past that point where we all think we have to shout at each other and then pound our chests and go USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA,….

There are ways of talking civilly. But they won’t happen when someone is in the middle lying to one side about the other… If we truly want a better America, that middle man is the real enemy. It never was the ones who got stirred up to cause trouble… But that one who is doing the stirring, should be taken out first…..

Let’s get this started. It can only work as a “We, The People’s” project. It can only work by hitting them in the pocket book… Who advertised on them today…? Just report it.

Americans don’t need a new KKK… Do what you can; get rid of Fox today……

It is a movement neither Democratic nor Republican. It is about turning our nation’s values back, towards being the type of nation to which all these immigrants want to come in the first place… Because we are one fuckin’ hell of a great people….

A 501 support group, sponsoring the the elimination of the electoral college, publicly derided Senator Katz for his not voting yes to remove the Electoral College. It was in Market Watch on Thursday, and the News Journal on Sunday.

The reason Senator Katz did not vote for pushing forward with the popular vote bill, is that he thinks it is wrong.

And I agree with him.

Everyone hates the electoral college at some point in their life, yet it has weathered over 700 Constitutional Amendments to get rid of it.

The NPV ( National Popular Vote) compact, is a method to get around this problem without changing the constitution….

Is this Constitutional? Will it muster court challenges? The Constitution gives states the method of determining how their electoral votes are cast. Bypassing that process without an amendment, should, be deemed unconstitutional…. After all you are changing years of Constitutional practice, without, even a legislative vote….

Furthermore, states not part of the Compact, would then be excluded from the electoral process. The decision on who would be president would be made only by those states who’d signed the compact.

The electoral college, was originally enacted, because not everyone trusted the country bumpkins with the powers of voting. Hell, you could buy a vote with moonshine… Enough moonshine, a crook gets into government… The electoral college prevented that. (There is nothing in the original Constitution that says Electoral delegates even have to vote the same way as did their state’s constituents.

And most importantly, the Electoral College protects the rights of states.

For example roughly 390,000 Delawareans voted in 2008, our last presidential election. Delaware has 3 electoral votes. As most of the readers here know, 390,000 is .001 of our nation’s population. In percent, Delaware voters make up .1% of the population. In a tight election, those 3 votes have some meaning. Mathematically, we have .5% influence in the electoral college. That is five times more clout, as the spinners would say…

Lastly, the electoral college provides clarity. We have had close elections before. In fact, the Bush/Gore race is one of recent memory, and probably the reason we are debating it now. The electoral college provides a clear line of who won. We have to have that. We all lived through a pretender in the White House for 8 years. But there was a system that we could follow, and say by the rules enacted, George Bush should be president….

Now imaging if we had an election that was only 10,000 votes off? How would you decide if the underdog challenged that figure, where those 10,000 votes were? There are votes misplaced in every election, even in Delaware. Mistakes get made (Paradee/Thornberg come to mind)… How can you go through an entire country’s voting system, and make sure every vote is legitimate?

At least with the electoral college, you have decisiveness.

Katz is right for not allowing this compact to go forward. It is ill thought, and has never been tested.

The electoral college is the rule by which we’ve always played.. If you’re going to change the rules, why not change football, why not change baseball, why not change hockey? Let’s just change the rules when our team doesn’t win…

Exactly.. Losers always hate the electoral college, especially if they won the popular vote. Winners never see a problem with it…

It is, what it is… Katz should be commended. Tom D’Amore, Co-Chairman of Support Popular Vote should be ridiculed and humiliated, and perhaps tried for treason.

So, can someone tell me again, why we shouldn’t tax the rich, and instead, balance the budget on the backs of everyone else?…….

I seem to be missing that little detail where that all makes sense……

Having recently seen the Harry Potter movie, it is scary. Ever since watching…. I now see giants everywhere. Before when I looked, I never knew they were there…

Two giants will be doing battle here in Delaware… (The recession is finally paying off for our little state.)

Papers were filed with the ITC (International Trade Commission) by the South Korean giant Samsung LED against a division of another giant this time from Germany, Siemens….. over 8 patient infringements.

Samsung LED also said it filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Delaware to seek damages and a permanent injunction to bar Siemen’s subsidary, Osram’s alleged patent infringement from entering this country.

At stake is the financial future of these two companies. One will win, and the other for lack of a better word, will be vanquished.

Since Siemens actually has a plant in Delaware, next to the Glasgow Park off Route 40 and 896, I’m putting my bets on that giant…. if they get hurt, it will cost jobs.

Hotels, restaurants, transportation companies all stand to be a little busier as this gigantic fight, gets under way…. It would be helpful to practice on the Korean and German dialects now, before the event gets under way…

Sprechen sie deutsch?

니미럴 개자식 ….

It should be an interesting fight.

The story goes that Warren Buffet, rather worried about his investments early 2008, wanted to talk to God… God told him to use his phone and he’d send him the bill… He got and paid the $333 million dollar charge. His investments flourished, too… That would be the end of the story, except he was down in Sussex County recently, following up first hand on a corporate case being processed out of Georgetown… once again, he asked God for the right to call, and agreed to accept the charges… When he got his bill, he was fuming… He was only charged 25 cents… “God”, he said, “you ripped me off on that first call, big time!”… God said, “Warren, don’t you get it? In Sussex County, that’s a local call…”

Local call or not, Sussex County is weighing in on whether to say a prayer before County meetings or to not… Here are a few takes on that policy: one, two, three, four……

As someone who grew up where prayers were always said before football games and county meetings, it isn’t a big deal…… That is, as long as everyone agrees it isn’t a big deal. You don’t see prayers before meetings conducted in New York.

Not because New Yorkers are heathens, but because in New York, you have a multiplicity of religions, so praying a prayer from one of them, is a slap in the face for all others…

Why it’s even an issue in Sussex County is because the Positive Growth Alliance, has been building condo’s like ants, and lots of people who did not grow up in Sussex County, now live there. Many have different ideas of religion than those who’ve always been there all their lives…

If everyone believe in the same version of God as does David Anderson, then of course, duh, why are we even arguing about it… Of course we’re going to pray to God to guide us through this meeting.. That’s what He’s for!

Suddenly, thanks to Rich Collins and the Positive Growth Alliance, we have tons of people who do object to having David Anderson’s version of God, one who dislikes Homosexuals, and one who casts pox on Democrats, one who believes married people should have sex only when they have children, one who believes sex between animals is immoral, one who believes taxes are caused by the devil, one who believes that nature was made to bulldoze and pave with a combination of petroleum and gravel. … one who believes that oil companies have the divine right to pollute oceans, one who believes that animals were made for us to kill. … one who believes a national religious holiday should fall on the first day of deer season.. one who believes pick up trucks and baseball caps are proof that homosexuality is a sin,… on who believes killing someone with a gun is not a sin, but taking that gun away for the safety of others is…

(yes, I’m having fun and talking tongue in cheek)…

The point I’m making is that Sussex County is changing; and it is changing mostly thanks to Rich Collins and the Positive Growth Alliance.

Can you make new citizens join the current religion? If so, then by all means, just like the days of old, they will see no qualms in having a tiny prayer before the meeting.

But if they don’t want to join that religion, then, to force one group of religious people to impose their prayers on others, is not American…In fact, it’s kinda creepy…

If in an effort to show fairness, the Sussex County decided they would do prayers from all religions in alphabetical order, when they came to “B” and hit Buddahism, giving an Buddahist prayer before the session, most of those in the audience would be saying WTF! This is our nation, why do we have to listen to such crap…

Which is… exactly what those Buddahists think, who have opened a business in Millsboro, and have come before the county to ask for a variance on something or other that is in their antiqued code….

So… If it is unnatural for a Baptist to suffer a Buddahist prayer, it is equally unnatural for a Buddahist to sit through a Baptist prayer…

It’s not about one religion being right and the other wrong. It’s about who the citizens are that make up Sussex County. If you want to blame anyone over this controversy, the blame solely lies with those who built up Sussex County and brought in all these new people to begin with… Now that they are here, we have to make Sussex County as fair to them as New York, is fair to us, when we take our business up there……

Positive Growth, huh? Depends on your version of positive I guess………….

High Price of Gas At the Pump

Yesterday, before Judge Pauley of the United District Court of the Southern District of New York, a motion was filed by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission, against a consortium of hedge funds that ran up the price of oil during the winter of 2008.

The defendants manipulated the market by buying up roughly two thirds of the supply passing through the Cushing terminal, holding on to it to create the impression supplies were short, then dumping it onto the market, after betting it would sell short.

They performed the caper in January 08 and March 08. They were unable to find funding to finance it during February 08. Once they were notified in April that they had been placed under investigation, this consortium stopped.

This is just one group. imagine 30 to 40 groups all doing the same thing…

That this is done is now common knowledge, Out there are those who still erroneously believe supply and demand affect oil prices.. They refuse to acknowledge that oil was $145 a barrel, then $45 dollars once the funds got sold off to keep from going bankrupt..

There are those out there who still think we need to drill, drill, drill, like drilling will lower the price at the pump… It won’t, It can’t, . But instead of opening ocean floor to drilling, there still is something the Federal Government can do to make our lives easier when it comes to putting gas into our cars…

They can bet the entire Federal Debt on the fact that gas will rapidly drop in price, then dump a considerable amount of the Strategic Petroleum Reserves onto the Market… As the price of gas plummets from $3.87 to $1.47 a gallon, and bankrupts each and every hedge fund, both domestic and international, so much so, that across both sides of Wall Street, the sound of light caliber pistol fire echoes from building to building, cubicle to cubicle, … it forces the price of oil to again become determined by supply and demand. As all the moneys of the hedge funders start back-flowing into the US Treasury, and as each of us breathe easier every time we pull up to the pump, we, by pursuing this action, take care of the problem of high prices at the pump once and for all.

I mean if private companies can do it to take money out of our pocket each time we pump gas, the Federal Government can do the opposite to put money back into our pockets…

This is the second time… The first was 2008, but now, because of Republican gains in Congress, it is happening again… It would be wise to remember: just as we had to fight Germany twice in half a century because we didn’t finish the war the first time… this time, in our second war with the hedge funds, it would be wise to accept nothing less than unconditional surrender on their part.

A lesson needs to be taught! That lesson is: you don’t screw over everyday Americans.

Yesterday’s small step in US District Court, begins the process of educating America as to just exactly why, and by who, they are paying over $2.40 a gallon higher than they should……

And let us all stop this nonsense that gasoline prices are not manipulated…. They are. I’ve shown you the proof.

Next time someone tells you they aren’t, do them a huge favor. punch them hard and hurt them a little….

It the government is not stopgap-funded by this date, it shuts down.

This year really doesn’t have a current budget…. yet. The Tea Partiers want to slash $100 billion out of this year alone. Republicans gave them the go ahead to try.

That is most of the discretionary budget.

There as been an academic argument for 30 years over whether big or little government is better.

This argument is divided, not so much along partisan lines, but along rural versus urban lines.

It makes a lot of sense really. In urban areas, there isn’t enough government. Too much crime, congestion, toxic waste,… all confront those citizens daily. How you going to combat them? Cut police? Cut highway funds? Cut environmental specialists?

No.

Now jump to mid America. Take Kansas City for example. Nearest City, St. Louis… a six hour drive across nothing. Go west, you see nothing for 10 hours till you hit Denver. Go north, 14 hours and you hit the Twin Cities. Go South, 800 miles…. first city… Dallas. And Kansas City? It has a franchise football team and franchise baseball team, but it is smaller then Wilmington Delaware’s greater metropolitan area….

And in between, …. lots, and I mean lots, of empty space….. very few people. North Dakota averages 10 people per square mile. When government intrudes into these people’s lives, they look at all the empty space around them, and say: “Out of all this space, you are actually bothering me? So what if my tractor leaks a drop or two of oil! My nearest neighbor is 20 miles away, and his next nearest is 30 miles beyond that! Now get off my land!”

But 2 million drops a day into a city’s drinking water, “ain’t” a good thing.

So,…. in this example, we see the divide separating the cheerleaders of both big and small government.

It truly is not the Democrat Party versus the Republicans: it’s an urban/rural standoff. What works for one, does not work for the other.

And it’s about time that all the pregame bullshit talk…. “my philosophy is better than your philosophy”, the crap we’ve heard since 1994, gets put to the test.

It’s time to flip the coin: Heads will pick receiving or kicking; tails will pick which side of field. Clock starts with the first kick of the ball..

So let’s see what happens when the government shuts down. It will be the republicans fault if it does. They will need 67 Senate votes to persist in their charade.

Lets see how those rural states, from whence these tea partiers hail, can survive without their urban subsidy. Yes, the solid blue states, the Democratic ones, those very ones that believe in big government, are also the very one subsidizing the red rural states with their Federal money. Republicans get defensive and cry like Boehner, upon hearing the very words: “redistribution of wealth”. But as you can see from here, wealth is redistributed from rich states to poor states all the time, and has been since their creation.

Urban subsidizes rural; not the other way around. Mississippi gets $2.02 dollars back for every dollar they send in to the Federal treasury. Delaware (the state that bucked the Tea Party trend because their citizens read blogs, not mainstream media), for every dollar it sends in, gets a paltry $.77 cents back….

So shut it down I say. Don’t blink. Maybe the Republicans have been right all these years…. Let’s shut down government, don’t drag it out, don’t water down the effort, don’t cause an economic malaise that stretches forever, …. Don’t compromise! Make the Republicans close the money spigot to their states, and let’s see, once and for all, whether or not, we need big government.

Let’s these states that continually vote Republican over and over again without any iota of what they’re doing, find out, once and for all, that they’ve been wrong all these years…

Once beaten in front of the world( someone buy Boehner some tissues), we can get on with fixing this country the right way, progressively, bringing prosperity back to the middle class where it belongs….

If Republicans won’t compromise, …. let them shut her down.

Bristol Palin and a friend go for lunch at McDonald’s where she eats a salad on Wednesday (September 29) in Los Angeles.

The most important election deciding event of all time

The 19-year old was recently at an Anchorage bar where her Dancing with the Stars partner Mark Ballas performed. However, the Palin family attorney says that Bristol was with two people over 21, ate food and did not consume any alcohol.

(Point is: I give up ) If no one else wants to talk about the issues, especially when it comes to Christine O’Donnell, then why should I bother. Apparently our children’s future will be decided by what our candidates eat. not by what they say, do, or to whom they owe money…

Has anyone talked about O’Donnell’s platform? No?

We vote in 31 days.

Lol, I told you.

And now we have it: a very clear choice. Maybe I’m the only one who is tired of parceling beans, putting some in this pile, others in that, and then counting up the totals to see which has more… A fight between Mike Castle and Chris Coons would be just that…

Instead, I wanted a clear fight, one that doesn’t even have to go nasty-ad personal to make the news… IN FACT, THE PERSONAL IS SOOO BORING, compared to the energy of what this battle of ideas will generate.

We have: Abortion versus Choice
Low Taxes versus Large Debt
Religion versus Science
Family values versus Economic Growth
Slashing Services versus Helping Those Less Fortunate
Carbon Fuels versus Nonpolluting Ones
Mommy versus Dad.

Lucky us. We have a sexy Mom (oo-la-la) and sexy Dad (hubba hubba) fighting it out… Anyway…..

Here are my predictions. This election will be way, way too close to call. It will be so close that the green and blue Castle-lites will quickly forgive and eagerly join in with the O’Donnell Blues…

This election will be the most exciting one in most living Delawarean’s memories. It will involve multiple local visits by the next presidential elections biggest names.

This election will redefine political boundaries for the next twelve years… Not officially, but this one set’s up the next election coming up in two years.

Most important, it opens up the dialogue of ideas
. The official Republican Party is dead. That’s the party of platitudes, or platypussys, (which is it? I forgot. )

Real people put in a candidate, one not supported by the party, one even disparaged by the party, one horribly ridiculed vociferously by the party… and guess what? …..

The people said ” yeah, that may be so…. but she is still much better than anything you got!!!! ..”

That’s a pretty damning indictment.

Christine now has the valid claim to be the one being of the people, for the people and (to win an election) by the people. To go against that, no matter who the opponent, is a very scary force to reckon with. Although oblivious to it now, Coons is is in trouble, and had better get his good ideas out there right now while Christine is reeling from her victory over the storming of the Bastille….

Likewise, everyone official who dissed her, whether blogger, think tank, or otherwise, obviously has interests that counteract those held dear-to-heart by real people. They have been proven to speak with forked tongues.

The People have spoken, just like they did with Obama. Each might cringe to be associated with the other, but both were fresh candidates in their respective races. If one looks at the big picture stretching over two parties, one hears the People saying “the old is not working. Let’s do something different…. ”

I’ve been calling for the death of the Republican Party, and so far, after each election after their peak in 2004, I have been correct; that party’s power has shrunk exponentially. However, Christine, has rejuvenated Conservatism in this state better than anything I could have done or said. For they( conservatives) are tired of being put down, stomped on, dismissed, pooh-poohed, cussed at, sexually intimidated, beaten up, suckered punched, laughed at, lip flipped, weasel wedged, wet Willied, bitch slapped, nipple tucked, and then be dismissed as inconsequential by a handful of men in Greenville with way too much money?

And now, conservatism has found a natural outlet to unleash all that energy pent up since the official Republican Party decided to cater to millionaires instead of Conservatives. Like a tiny wedge in a sand dam, all that pent up energy, will change the landscape these next few weeks ..

But will Conservatism work? Ahh, that is another question and will be one debated in another post.. Right now, I have to get back and celebrate with the lovely Ms. O’Donnell, her coming out party… 🙂

I thought it would be an interesting exercise to pour over this weekends news and pull out any blatant falsehoods being offered to anyone with a microphone, by the outdated, obsolete, and obstinate Republican Party… Some Democrats comments showed up as well.

Republicans objected because, according to Sen. Michael Enzi, R-Wyo., they were not given time to review the specific language of the proposals beforehand.

Wrong! They were given 48 more hours than Democrats ever received when Republican controlled both houses.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Democrats are “intent on passing this health care bill that the American people oppose.

Wrong! The only people opposing this plan are insurance executives… They amount to 0.006% of the population… That means that 99.994% of America supports updating Health Care to a better plan….

H.R. Congressman Bob Latta, says #3962 will cost taxpayers over $1.3 trillion dollars over the next ten years, including $729.5 billion in new taxes on small businesses, penalties assessed to individuals who cannot afford health coverage, and penalties assessed to employers who cannot afford to provide coverage that meet federal bureaucrats’ standards.

Wrong! It will not cost taxpayers a penny. It will save America $500 billion dollars over what Americans would have spent on health care without this reform… American CAN NOT AFFORD TO WASTE another $500 Billion that we currently overpay for taking care of our bodies….

H.R. 3962 creates a government-run insurance program that could cause as many as 114 million Americans to lose their current coverage.

Under the insurance plans that passed the House and now under debate in the Senate, almost all Americans will receive health care coverage at a cost far less than they are paying now, and will have more conditions covered than they currently do… Under this plan NO AMERICAN WILL LOSE THEIR COVERAGE. But it would be nice if all Republicans did so they would understand just what the rest of America as lived through since 2000.


The government-run insurance plan will be administered by a newly-created Health Care Commissioner and a “Health Benefits Advisory Committee” who will have the ultimate say in your health care decisions- NOT you or even your doctors .”

Wrong! Instead of those Insurance executives primarily worried about whether to buy their 8th or 9th beach front house property, you and your doctor WILL MAKE the appropriate decision regarding your healthcare… The whole purpose of this bill is to bring back the power to doctors and patients regarding their own healthcare, and to take that determination entirely away from the insurance executives who have royally screwed up the once great United States health care system since the year 2000.

. As Congress moves forward with the larger comprehensive health care debate, we should consider the benefits and flexibility of state-based reform.”

Wrong! This plan is only in place to give Health Insurance Companies the ability to keep the monopolies they have in state… The only way to bust those monopolies that steal roughly $500 billion of our national inheritance, is to establish a national plan that drops costs 50% over what state’s could ever offer… Do you want to pay 50% more and get 50% less? Insurance Executives and Republicans want you to pay more so they can buy that extra house….

This Health Care Bill will put the American people and our Children and their Children in bad DEBT!!!

This Health Care Bill saves America money. When you go into debt sometimes you have to work to get more money. The rich have money… Tax them like we used to, (they prospered then) and we won’t go into debt…. Tax them fairly, and all will be well…

Oops… looks like I found my quota on just one site.

I
