Clip From Fox News Sunday 11/01/09

"This is not about insuring the uninsured. This is not about healthcare. This is about stealing one-sixth of the U.S. private sector and putting it under the control of federal government. And when they get this healthcare bill, if they do, that's the easiest, fastest way for them to be able to regulate every aspect of human behavior, because it'll all have some related cost to healthcare: what you drive, what you eat, where you live, what you do. And it will be penalties for violating regulations. It's gonna be the biggest snatch of freedom and liberty that has yet occurred in this country." - Rush Limbaugh on Fox News Sunday to be broadcast tomorrow 11/1/09



For THose Who Say The GOP Doesn't Have A Health Care Reform Plan

The Men Who Stare At Goats

A History of Hallowe'en or All Hallows Eve

• The Celts wore costumes made from animal heads and built large fires to celebrate their new year, which fell on November 1. New Year’s Eve on October 31 was known as Samhain (pronounced “sow-in”) and marked the end of the “season of the Sun” (summer) and the beginning of “the season of darkness and cold”( winter). Although this 2,000-year-old version of Hallowe’en did not include trick or treating, it was far from dull.

• The Celts would burn crops and animals as offerings to their gods. Before the celebration, the ancient people would extinguish all fires other than the central bonfire, and scare each other with fortune-telling and prophesying.

• The Romans later adapted this festival of the dead to honor the goddess of fruits and trees, Pomona. This is the most likely reason why, on Hallowe’en, we still bob for apples.

• In the year AD835 the Roman Catholic Church made November 1 a holiday to honor all the saints. Although it was a joyous holiday, it was also the eve of All Souls Day, or All Hallows, so in medieval times it became customary to pray for the dead on this date.

• Hallowe’en’s modern popularity can be attributed to the Americans. Because the celebration was largely free of any religious connections, it was quickly embraced by a broad swath of immigrants in the second half of the 19th century. Today Americans spend an estimated $6.9 billion on Hallowe’en each year.

Mike Allen At Politico - Words That Work

Frank Luntz of The Word Doctors was at the Capitol this week to brief Republican lawmakers on his new plan for undermining Democrats' health-reform without making the GOP look bad. GOP sources provided Pulse with his 8-page playbook: 'You STILL need to acknowledge the need for reform. ... Public anger is REAL (note to certain media outlets & bloggers who will eventually savage this memo: the town hall phenomenon is NOT manufactured). ... offer 'a better approach.' ... Barack Obama is right: what Americans want is a solution, not continued political bickering. And what your 'solution' must provide is, in a word, more: 'more access to more treatments and more doctors...with less interference from insurance companies and Washington politicians and special interests.' ... 'Bipartisanship' is what Americans want from Washington when it comes to healthcare. Here, the GOP needs to make a much greater effort. Once you've articulated the goal of bipartisanship, it is fair game (and according to our polling, supported by independents) to level a sharper attack on those who control Congress: 'The Democratic Party controls a 77 seat majority in the House and almost 20 seats in the Senate, along with the White House. If they cannot get a bill passed with such overwhelming control of Washington, it says there's something wrong with the legislation. Rather than forcing a bill through with only limited support, they should keep working until they can get a bill that represents the opinions of most Americans.''

American Educational System - A "System" Of Social Management

America's transition from a sovereign constitutional republic to a socialist democracy would not come about through warfare (bullets and tanks) but through the implementation and installation of the "system" in all areas of government-federal, state and local.

AP Reporters - Stimulus Jobs Overstated By White House

Stimulus jobs overstated by thousands,' by Brett J. Blackledge and Matt Apuzzo- AP:

'A Colorado company said it created 4,231 jobs with the help of President Barack Obama's economic recovery plan. The real number: fewer than 1,000. A child care center in Florida said it saved 129 jobs with the help of stimulus money. Instead, it gave pay raises to its existing employees. Elsewhere in the U.S., some jobs credited to the stimulus program were counted two, three, four or even more times. The government has overstated by thousands the number of jobs it has created or saved with federal contracts under the president's $787 billion recovery program, according to an Associated Press review of data released in the program's first progress report. ... The errors could be magnified Friday when a much larger round of reports is released. It is expected to show hundreds of thousands of jobs repairing public housing, building schools, repaving highways and keeping teachers on local payrolls. ... 'Part of this is, it's an unprecedented effort,' said Tom Gavin, a spokesman for the White House budget office. 'It's as new to recipients who have to do it as it is to the American people who are able to view this data for the first time.''

Stimulus Package For Taxpayers Explained

Sometime this year, we taxpayers may again receive an
Economic Stimulus payment. This is an exciting program. I'll
explain it using the Q and A format:

Q. What is an Economic Stimulus payment?
A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q. Where will the government get this money?
A. From taxpayers.

Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?
A. Only a smidgen.

Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV
set, thus stimulating the economy.

Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ?
A. Shut up.

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the US economy by spending
your stimulus check wisely:

If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to
China .
If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.
If you purchase a computer, it will go to India .
If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico,
Honduras and Guatemala .
If you buy a car, it will go to Japan or Korea .
If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .
If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to
management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.

Instead, keep the money in America by:
1 spending it at yard sales, or

2 going to ball games, or

3 spending it on prostitutes, or

4 beer or

5 tattoos.

(These are the only American businesses still operating in the US .)

Conclusion:

Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard sale and
drink beer all day.

Have a Nice Day
