Single-payer Health Care is a Great Option For the Political Class

Under a European type single-payer system, the political class would have priority health care, serviced immediately with the best doctors in the country. Take the case of Hillarity Clinton who recently broke her elbow. In the current U.S. system, she was diagnosed and operated on within a week of her fall. Even by our current standards, that's pretty quick work. Regular folk, working Americans, still may have to wait up to a month for the same treatment following an emergency room visit. You can also bet that Hillarity would not have had to wait in the ER waiting room cradling her arm in pain for any real length of time.

Even in America, insurance or not, ER's pretty much triage then treat in order of emergency regardless of one's station in life. One could assume anyway that we do have the best, albeit not always perfect, health care system in the world. You don't see Americans running up to Canada for immediate medical attention, they come here in droves from around the world.

Chairman Zero Feeling the Chill

Taking polls with a grain of salt, they can be entertaining nonetheless, Obama found his center; his 'O'...

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 33% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-three percent (33%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of 0.

'O' my...'O' no...'O' yes... ergo, Chairman Zero...


Obama Administration's Financial Regulation Reforms Ignore the Flaws

CATO | Mark A. Calabria, director of financial regulation studies:

The Obama Administration is presenting a misguided, ill-informed remake of our financial regulatory system that will likely increase the frequency and severity of future financial crises. While our financial system, particularly our mortgage finance system, is broken, the Obama plan ignores the real flaws in our current structure, instead focusing on convenient targets.

Eight RINO's Go Left, 44 Democrats Get it Right

The House of Errors passed the disastrous American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 late Friday. The 1200 page monstrosity, with a 300 page addendum, introduced at 3AM Friday morning, was debated and passed in just three hours.

What an absolute embarrassment for the families and constituents of the idiots, the morons that signed onto Obama-Waxman cap and tax scheme (HR2454). One would hope embarrassment foments into anger in 2010 for 211 brain dead liberals and eight stunted RINO's alike:

Deny Global Warming and You've Committed 'Treason Against the Planet'

Paul Krugman in a NYT column appears to have consumed a bit too much Kool-Aid whilst watching contrived docufantasies prior to keyboarding this load of crap..

"And as I watched the deniers make their arguments, I couldn't help thinking that I was watching a form of treason -- treason against the planet. To fully appreciate the irresponsibility and immorality of climate-change denial, you need to know about the grim turn taken by the latest climate research."

Excerpts at Times Watch if you want to skip reading the intellectually challenged nonsense of the NYT.

Waxman: Republicans 'Rooting Against the World'

How is it possible to take these idiots seriously with anally driven drivel like this:

Republicans are "rooting against" the U.S. and the world by standing against climate change legislation, the economic stimulus package, and healthcare reform bills, Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., said this week, according to a report by The Hill.

Washington Post backs off 'salon' pitch

Too late, the cat's out of the bag and the damage is done. It comes as no surprise though, news organizations have been buying access for decades, it took an outsider (Politico.com?) to expose what most within the industry already know to be common practice. Exposing the Post, as a front for the political power's that be, providing access to a limited group for a fee is a first. A bizarre fee for service scheme in tough economic times points to an industry problem. News gatherers have turned investigative journalism into insider dictation; rewriting what is spoon fed to them by a nontransparent government controlling the conversation. The Post and who knows what others have been journalistically compromised. Access is how Al Gore was able to scam the world. Al Gore's propaganda machine became the tainted media's only source for false global warming claims that were never vetted. Obama has upped the ante and taken greater control.
