FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

 

 

 
 
 

“If you consider that there has been an average of 

160,000 troops in the Iraq Theater of operations during the past 22 

months, and a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate

of 60 per 100,000 soldiers.

 

 

The firearm death rate in Washington , DC  is 80.6 per 100,000 for

the same period. That means you are about 25 per cent more likely

to be shot and killed in the  US capital, which has some of the strictest 

gun control laws in the US , than you are in Iraq .

 

Conclusion: The US should pull out of Washington.

 

 

Very interesting article from Canada . The Canadian Press seems to be something like our AP, gathering news from across the world for the Canadian media. If these observations are true, it appears that the wizard behind the curtain is becoming exposed.
 

 Canadian insight into the Obama Thing.  What is astounding is that it comes from Canada , a, so far, more left Country than the U.S.

Obama’s White House is Falling Down 
By Daniel Greenfield Thursday, June 11, 2009 
 
In the sixth month of his presidency, Obama has turned an economic downturn into an economic disaster, taking over and trashing entire companies, and driving the nation deep into deficit spending expected to pass 10 trillion dollars. 
 
Abroad, Obama seems to have no other mode except to continue on with his endless campaign, confusing speechmaking with diplomacy. It is natural enough that Obama, who built his entire campaign on high profile public speeches reported on by an adoring press, understands how to do nothing else but that. 
 
Ego driven photo-op appearances and clueless treatment of foreign dignitaries 
 
While the press is still chewing over Obama’s Cairo speech, this celebrity style coverage ignores the fact that Obama’s endless world tour is not actually accomplishing anything. Instead his combination of ego driven photo-op appearances and clueless treatment of foreign dignitaries have alienated many of America ‘s traditional allies. Those who aren’t being quietly angry at Obama, like Brown, Merkel or Netanyahu, instead think of him as an absurdly lightweight, as Sarkozy, King Abdullah or Putin do. 
 
While his officials carry out their dirty economic deeds, Obama responds to any and every crisis as if it were a Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland musical, with a cry of, “Let’s put on a show.” Thus far Obama has put on “shows” across America , Europe and the Middle East . And what the adoring media coverage neglects to cover, is that Obama’s shows have solved absolutely nothing. They 
have served only as high profile entertainment. 
 

Neither alienating America ‘s traditional allies, through a combination of arrogant bullying and ignorance, nor appeasing America ‘s enemies, has yielded any actual results. Nor does it seem likely to. Islamic terrorism is not going anywhere, neither are the nuclear threats from North Korea and Iran . While Obama keeps smiling, the global situation keeps growing more grim. 
 
At home, if Obama was elected as depression era entertainment, the charm of his smiles and his constant appearances on magazine covers appear to be wearing thin on the American public. Despite the shrill attacks on Rush Limbaugh or the Republican Enemy of the Weak– the Democratic party of 2009, is polling a lot like the Republican party of 2008. The Democrats have suddenly become the incumbents, and the only accomplishment they can point to is lavish deficit spending, often on behalf of the very same corporations and causes they once postured against. 
 

The European Union Parliament’s swing to the right cannot be credited to Obama, though doubtlessly some European voters seeing socialist economic crisis management on display in the world’s richest country decided they wanted none of it, but it is part of a general turning against federalism. And Obama’s entire program is dependent on heavily entrenching federalism at the expense of individual and state’s rights. Yet that is precisely his Achilles heel with independent voters who are polling against more taxes and expanded government. And no amount of speeches by Obama can wish away his 18 czars or the national debt he has foisted on generation after generation of the American people. 

That leaves Obama with a choice between socialism and the independent voter. And thus far he has chosen socialism. 
 
Obama’s tactic of hijacking Bush Administration era policies on the economy and the War on Terror, and exploiting them as Trojan horses to promote his own agenda, have left him coping with a backlash from his own party, as well as general Republican opposition. 

His Czars are meant to function as the bones in an executive infrastructure accountable to no one, but a lack of accountability isn’t just another word for tyranny, but for incompetence. A functional chain of command is accountable at multiple levels if it is to function effectively. Obama’s White House by contrast is in a state of over-organized chaos, the sort of organized disorganization that undisciplined egotistical leftists naturally create for themselves, complete with multiple overlapping levels of authority and no one in charge but the man at the top, who’s too busy doing other things to actually be in charge. 
 
Dennis Blair as National Intelligence, who collaborated with the Muslim genocide of Christians in East Timor , trying to muscle out the CIA to create his own intelligence network, is typical of the kind of chaos being spawned by every chief in an expanding government bureaucracy working to make sure that all the Indians answer to him. Similarly the National Security Council wrestling with the State Department, highlighted by Samantha Power getting her own specially created NSC position to butt heads with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, illustrates the state of conflict and chaos in American foreign affairs. A state of chaos so pervasive that incompetence has now become commonplace, and no one can even be found to double check the spelling of a Russian word that is meant to be the theme of American’s diplomatic reconstruction with Russia , or to pick out a gift for the visiting British Prime Minister. 
 
The death of Chrysler at the hands of Fiat and the UAW 

Meanwhile on the economy, Obama exploited the ongoing bailouts, transforming them from bailouts into takeovers meant to shift the balance of power in what had been a democracy and socially

engineer not only corporations, but the lives of ordinary Americans. But the public’s patience with corporate bailouts is at an end, most Americans were never happy with them to begin with, and want them to end. The death of Chrysler at the hands of Fiat and the UAW might look like a victory in the union ranks, but it doesn’t play too well outside Detroit . And tacking on CAFE standards that will kill the pickup truck and the SUV will badly erode Obama in the swing states, if exploited properly in 2010 and 2012. Despite the constant media barrage, orchestrated out of the White House, the public is growing disenchanted with the performance of Obama and the Democrats. 
 
With unemployment booming and the economy dropping, the jobs aren’t there and the spending is out of control. Republicans today are polling better on ethics and the economy, than the Democrats are. That shows a trend which is likely to register in the mid-term elections in 2010, in the same way that the EU parliamentary elections served as a shock to the system. 

In the opposition, Republicans are free to embrace the rhetoric of change, to champion reform and push libertarian ideas about the size and scope of government. In turn all Obama has is his celebrity fueled media spectacle world tour. A charade now serving as a parallel to the depression era entertainment that functioned as escapism in a dour time. But before long, it may be Obama that the American public will want to escape from. 
  
A shallow, manipulative and egotistical amateur who is in over his head 
 
Obama has tried to play Lincoln, Reagan, JFK and FDR– but in the end he can only play himself, a shallow, manipulative and egotistical amateur who is in over his head, and trying to drag the country down with him. Obama’s White House is falling down and while the flashbulbs are still glittering and the parties are going on in D.C. and around the world, Obama and the Democratic Congress may be headed for a recession of their own.

If it were a matter of mere political disagreement, we would join the calls to strike a conciliatory tone and mourn the death of Sen. Edward Kennedy. But we do a disservice to him and the country to call him anything but what he was. Ted Kennedy was not a good man and we mourn the damage (or worse) he did both to individuals and to America.  From The Patriot Post.  This says it better than I ever could.  The Bible says, “It is appointed unto men once to die and after this the judgement.  Sundogger

President of American Association of Neurological Surgeons Discusses Need for Medical Liability Reform

Despite President Obama paying lip service to the need for medical liability reform while speaking at a meeting of the American Medical Association (AMA), there is not a whisper of such reform in the more than 1,000-page health care legislation being pushed by the President and Congress.

That is one of numerous reasons why physicians and physician organizations are breaking from the AMA and announcing their opposition to H.R. 3200, the dubiously titled “America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009.”

Recently, Dr. Troy Tippett, a Florida neurosurgeon and president of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, joined CFIF’s Renee Giachino to discuss medical liability reform, the costs associated with practicing defensive medicine, and what doctors need to see in a health care reform bill in order to support a plan.

 Health Care Reform Without Medical Liability Reform is No Reform At All



 

 

In this week’s Freedom Minute, CFIF’s Renee Giachino discusses why meaningful medical liability reform is badly needed to reduce U.S. health care costs.  out of 6 Doctors admitted in a study that nearly 25% of all tests, procedures and referrals they ordered are soley protection from lawsuits.  Massachusetts Medical Society.


Cuban Woes

August 14, 2009

The end result of communism is always scarcity of resources, and Cuba is learning that lesson as the small Caribbean nation strains under a toilet paper shortage. Well, except for birthday boy Fidel Castro, who, like Obama and his health care package, won’t suffer the same shortages as his subjects. Officials are feeling the pinch as they try to keep the economy afloat, and they expect that “at the end of the year there will be an important importation of toilet paper.” In fact, supplies are stopped up because of central planning and price controls — imports have been cut by 20 percent — and relief may not come before the end of the rear, er, year. On the other hand, Cuba is also running short on food and is cutting red bean and chickpea rations by a third, and oxen are plowing the fields because there is little fuel for tractors. With so little food, maybe the demand for toilet paper will subside. Ahh, nothing like the bright side of communism. If Cuba would embrace liberty, perhaps it would no longer be the butt of so many jokes. As long as the country continues following Fidel, however, shortages like this will be the bottom story of the day.   Courtesy of The Patriot.

Tnen call your Rep. and tell him your strong feelings pro or con on this legislation.  Remember, the very old and the very young are the ones that will find their necessary health care reduced and sometimes refused.  Sundogger

“Can you then consent to be the only sufferers by this revolution, and retiring from the field, grow old in poverty, wretchedness and contempt? Can you consent to wade through the vile mire of dependency, and owe the miserable remnant of that life to charity, which has hitherto been spent in honor? If you can — GO — and carry with you the jest of tories and scorn of whigs — the ridicule, and what is worse, the pity of the world. Go, starve, and be forgotten!” –George Washington, letter to the Officers of the Army, 1783
