Stupid Liberal Progressives Elected Someone Dumber Than Bush!
Joe Leiberman says "No need for health care reform until US is out of the recession." Translated: "I'm not voting for it and if you feel the same way as I do, use this lead to say NO!" This is why I believe an Independent Party should begin to form around people like Lieberman.
Charlie Gibson asked President Obama if he'd put himself and his family on a government run health care plan. He danced around the question in his usual slick way and never answered it. If you read the House Bill, it specifies that members of Congress can "opt out". Like they do with taxes, honesty, integrity, loyalty, etc.

Myths and Morality in Health Insurance Reform (I'm talking morality now since you all seem to cling to it)
"Watch The Magic Show! Nothing Up My Sleeve....."
Or what if you discovered that your auto mechanic was a member of Greenpeace? Would you think twice about having him work on your SUV? Of course you would.
So why do you trust your retirement savings to people who secretly despise -- or simply didn't understand -- the free-market capitalist system that makes profits and prosperity possible.
Yet that, believe it or not, is exactly the position millions of Americans are finding themselves in today -- as they discover that Wall Street, far from being a stronghold of "rich Republicans" and "laissez-faire capitalists," is actually dominated by angry, liberal Democrats who support, overwhelmingly, the prosperity-wrecking big-government policies of Barack Obama and his merry band of neo-socialists. Do you think I'm exaggerating? Consider the following facts and statistics:
1. According to an analysis of Federal Election Commission records by the Center for Responsive Politics, the 2008 Obama campaign received $12.6 million from Wall Street "Securities and Investment" firms versus McCain's $7.9 million
2. The top three corporate employers of donors to Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Rahm Emanuel were Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and JPMorgan
3. Employees of Lehman Brothers alone gave Obama $370,000, compared to about $117,000 to McCain. (No wonder Bush let them go under.)
Since 1998, the financial sector has given a total of $37.6 million to Obama, compared to $32.1 million to McCain. But Obama ran for his first national office only in 2004. So McCain got less from the financial industry in a decade that included two runs for president than Obama did in four years.
What's this all about? Well, you see, the financial industry takes care of Democrats -- and as we've seen in recent months, the Democrats take care of the financial industry. After all, it's a lot easier to get rich by taking money from taxpayers than to do it by choosing consistently profitable investments.
As a result of these facts, I've turned to one source for all my financial investment ideas and suggestions:
Give Dr. Skousen a try. He has made a dramatic difference in the performance of my investments.
This cockpit video is from a training flight in an F-16 flying out of Tinsdale AFB. The student and instructor ejected safely after a bird was sucked into the engine on takeoff. At the end, the tower can be heard talking to an empty aircraft.
While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care Program with my friend the other day, I think we have found the solution.
I am sure you have heard the ideas that if you 're a senior you need to suck it up and give up the idea that you need any health care. A new hip? Unheard of. We simply can't afford to take care of you anymore. You don't need any medications for your high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, etc. Let's take care of the young people. After all, they will be ruling the world very soon.
So here is the solution.
When you turn 70, you get a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot 2 senators and 2 representatives. Of course, you will be sent to prison where you will get 3 meals a day, a roof over your head and all the health care you need! New teeth, great! Need glasses, no problem. New hip, knee, kidney, lung, heart? Well bring it on. And who will be paying for all of this. The same government that just told you that you are too old for health care. And, since you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any income tax.
And if we all do our part we can end up in the same prison and have one hell of a social life.
