August 2010



A full year and a half after watching the left demonstrate their inherent inability to engage in critical thinking and to look beyond the campaign hyperbole of our now community organizer for president, we are now starting to see their inability to stick to their own principles, flawed as they are.

We watched in amazement as the left, whipped into a froth by a national media which has resembled Pravda or Tass for for some time, rushed like lemmings to the voting booths to elect a shallow orator into the most powerful position on the planet.

Now we watch in disgust as the Obama supporters come out of their drunken-like stupor and sober up to the truth the rest of us already know; socialism is repressive and it doesn’t work to provide the conditions needed for a successful society. It never has. It never will.

But the left demonstrate another inability. They can’t recognize truth when it stares them in the face. As young college students, their minds have been corrupted by the liberal and socialist ideologies which has been pumped into their soft, mushy heads by professors and other corrupted elements coming from the left-wing.

These legions of liberal minded graduates which some call “progressives” are now captains of industry. They are media moguls, teachers and politicians and for several decades they have been very busy subverting our institutions and core values of our country. It’s no wonder our country is in shambles today, a product of their “sick-think” which turns traditional values and thinking on its ear by their belief that our country is broken and only they can fix it. The A.C.L.U. and activist judges are their tools.

Think about this one; California’s fiscal crisis is the product of a generation of leadership produced by the ’60s. I there was any era which represented a wholesale rejection of traditional values, it would be the ’60s. Barbara Boxer, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi come from that generation. Collectively, they’ve made a shambles of California and now they’re in Washington, D.C. and they’re well on their way to applying their sick-think to make a wreck out of our nation.

The liberal loves to label the Republican Party as “the party of no” which suggests they are “the party of yes.” Based upon their lack of convictions when it comes to traditional values, patriotism and national sovereignty, one might agree. They have established a clear record of saying –

  • “yes” to same-sex marriages,
  • “yes” to open borders,
  • “yes” to granting constitutional rights to non-citizens, especially to our enemies,
  • “yes” to tax policies creating economic uncertainty for businesses and denying economic freedom of consumers all of which lead to stagnant economic conditions and double digit unemployment rates,
  • “yes” to spending policies creating debt levels which threatens our national security,
  • “yes” to granting illegal immigrants the right to vote, especially when it benefits the Democrat party,
  • “yes” to a national media which advances their agenda
  • “yes” to emaciating our military
  • “yes” to large government
  • “yes” to policies reflecting those of socialism i.e. nationalizing large corporations and majority ownership
  • “yes” to allowing heads of foreign states the opportunity to address congress and then giving them standing ovations when they speak about how wrong we are to want to preserve our sovereignty by incarcerating and deporting immigrants who have come into our country illegally,
  • “yes” to blaming Republicans and conservatives alike for the affects of their failed policies administered by their own, such as Barney Franks, Chris Dodd, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and who clearly don’t give a rat’s ass about the will of the people or democratic process,

Clearly, this list could go on for a long time, but the above items serve to illustrate the destructive characteristics of their belief systems which they embed into their policies and laws, all of which conservatives and those in the Republican party disagree with, leaving them labeled as belonging to “the party of no”.

However, it’s easy to see those of the left haven’t got a clue about what it means to do the right thing for our country, which is to say those on the right actually belong to “the party of know”.

I recently had the opportunity to get a doctor’s opinion about how she anticipates the effects of Obama’s health care law upon her medical practice. She had this to say:

Honestly, It doesn’t affect me since I work at a government facility and I only see veterans. However, I think some kind of overhaul needed to be done. The current health care system leaves so many people uninsured. Only time will tell how it will affect the health care system. Hopefully the quality of health care won’t diminish because of it.

I do have several colleagues that work privately and the red tape that they currently deal with when it comes to private insurance companies is pretty overwhelming. Hopefully it won’t get worse with the health care system overhaul. I haven’t talked to any of them recently about work but If I hear anything I will let you know what their feedback is.

Obviously, she is cautiously optimistic.


I believe as she does; that reform was required to ensure all had equal coverage.

I also believed as the politicians did; that reform was required to ensure all had equal coverage and with the overreaching goal of bringing down costs.

I would have been ecstatic to have seen

  • reform to allow insurance companies to compete across state lines,
  • reform for pharmaceutical companies to be allowed to recoup R&D costs for longer periods before being turned into a generic,
  • reform for hospitals who are charging $50 for a tablet of aspirin and arbitrarily “negotiate” with insurance companies to bring down costs of medical procedures by 80%.

U.S Senator Sam Brownback and Rep. Kevin Brady Reveal the Details

Developed by the Joint Economic Committee minority, led by U.S Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas and Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas, the detailed organization chart displays a bewildering array of new government agencies, regulations and mandates.

In addition to capturing the massive expansion of government and the overwhelming complexity of new regulations and taxes, the chart portrays:

  • $569 billion in higher taxes;
  • $529 billion in cuts to Medicare;
  • swelling of the ranks of Medicaid by 16 million;
  • 17 major insurance mandates; and
  • the creation of two new bureaucracies with powers to impose future rationing:
    – the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute and
    – the Independent Payments Advisory Board.

Brady admits committee analysts could not fit the entire health care bill on one chart. “This portrays only about one-third of the complexity of the final bill. It’s actually worse than this.”

Obama’s Bill Increases Cost of Prescription Drugs

In the US today, drug patents give twenty years of protection, but they are applied for before clinical trials begin, so the effective life of a drug patent tends to be between seven and twelve years.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which President Obama signed on March 23, 2010 now authorize the Food and Drug Administration to approve generic versions of biologic drugs and grant biologics manufacturers only 12 years of exclusive use before generics can be developed.

What this means is that we can expect prices of our medications to go UP, not down, because the drug companies now have less time to recoup the R&D costs and costs associated with clinical trials.
