Mob Rule?

In Health care, Obama, President obamas Cabinet on March 25, 2010 at 12:58 pm

During the Stamp Act by the British Crown, rioters ransacked the home of the newly appointed stamp commissioner, Andrew Oliver of Massachusetts.

He resigned the position the next day.  Threatening or attacking the Crown-appointed office-holders became a popular tactic against the act throughout the colonies. Though no stamp commissioner was actually tarred and feathered, this Medieval brutality was a popular form of 18th century mob violence in Great Britain, particularly against tax collectors.  Today it seems that throwing bricks, making threats and out right frustration have become the order of the day.  Does President Obama or Congress have a clue at the frustration of the American People?  Probably not if they are surprised at the reaction of some who have been watching this farce.

An entire revolution occurred over the charging of less that .01 to pay for a war.  Wait till America see’s this bill.

It’s not over till the last vote is cast

In Health care, Obama, President obamas Cabinet on March 20, 2010 at 1:20 pm

Will the Next Edmund G Ross please stand up?  As the only Senator to vote against the impeachment of Andrew Johnson, Senator Ross defied his parties filibuster proof majority and saved the nation.  How?  By defying his party he kept the 3 branches of government intact.  Yes all the senate knew the day of the vote they could control a branch of government.  But just like today, a man of conscious rose above politics and saved us from ourselves.

Is there no senator who knows better in his heart that his Healthcare bill is going to hurt the country finically?  Is not one of them aware that throwing money at the problem will not fix anything?  Just look at the debacles you have given us so far.  Cash for Clunkers, Stimulus, H1N1 vaccine allotments, Housing bust and Tarp!

The Louisiana purchase alone should be enough to each of you from voting.  It is wrong that one state will be given additional services at the expense of others for a vote.

Where is a Senator of Principal?  Where is the next Senator Ross.  It’s not to late.  Think before you vote to destroy our way of life.

George Washington’s Warning to all Americans

In Government Reforms, Health care on March 18, 2010 at 12:36 pm

George Washington’s farewell Address was sent to all of us, the citizens of the United States.  It was placed in papers as a warning, certainly President Obama must have read it while in Law School.  Yet as President he seems to have forgotten it’s real meaning.  It’s message, don’t try to pull anything over on the people without the support of the people!

“It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration,(this seems to have bypassed President Obama) to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres,(which should not be forcing government run health care on us, from only one party, and even then having to “buy the votes” to get it passed) avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.( Washington understood this danger, why can’t a Harvard Trained Lawyer) A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositaries, and constituting each the guardian of the public wealth against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern; some of them in our country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them. If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation;(Here it is, the real warning from the past, “USURPATION” the ultimate warning) for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit, which the use can at any time yield”.

George Washington was worried then, as we should be today.  None of us have seen the Healthcare Bill!  Yet they are trying to plan a vote.  Why the Rush?  Why no debate?  Why not a vote, perhaps after the next elections?

Self Executing Rule

In Health care on March 17, 2010 at 3:35 am

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that she is still considering a legislative procedure that would allow the House of Representatives to pass health care reform without voting on the bill the Senate passed in December.

“We have several options available to us,” Pelosi said when asked about the procedure. “We’ve asked the parliamentarian and the Rules Committee to tell us what our options are and they have given us some. I have told our members that until we see the substance from the CBO,we won’t have an indication about how to go forward, but we want to know what our options are.Under a maneuver known as a “self-executing rule,” health care would be deemed to have passed once House members approve a package of fixes they want to make in the Senate bill.

It’s still our country, call or write your senator or Congressman today…. We must stop this and not allow a group to destroy our country!  Jam the switchboard, E-mail and call the local offices.  They are going to try to put this over on us without even a vote!

End the Healthcare Debate?

In Uncategorized on March 12, 2010 at 3:43 am

Why and when did President Obama become so powerful that he alone can determine what others are to think?  Since Obamacare was planned behind closed doors by democrats, the debate will never end.  No C-span, no republicans, no nurses or doctors.  Why?  Because our President has decided the debate is over.

Dictatorship?

Reagan on the Fifty?

In Uncategorized on March 4, 2010 at 1:48 pm

Has Ronald Reagan earned the kind of Presidential honor as to end up on our money?  In a word Yes, he was one of the greatest leaders we have ever had.  But not at the expense of another great president.  Rep. Patrick McHenry wants to replace President Grant.  Grant was no Reagan, but without him we would not have ended the Civil War in a timely fashion.  There was also a prior move to replace Alexander Hamilton on our currency with Ronald Reagan.

I propose a new $ 250.00 bill with President Reagan’s picture.  If we are choosing leaders to honor President Reagan is on the short list.  His work in restoring integrity in the White House.  Bringing down the Berlin Wall, when no one thought it was possible.  Giving us back a solid economy after the failed policies of the Carter Administration.  All reasons for the honor.

But not at the expense of other great leaders.  Not knowing our history is going to be the end of our country if we are not careful.  At the rate President Obama is spending we will need larger currency anyway.  So yes lets find a place for this great man, on a new demoniation.

How about a 25 Dollar Coin?  A new $ 250.00.

Cut Governement Pay First, then Medicare.

In Uncategorized on March 3, 2010 at 12:13 am

Congress can allocate an additional $82 billion for physician payments without having to find new sources of revenue or savings. That’s not enough to scrap the current payment system altogether, but it could be enough to block scheduled pay cuts for five years. With out this additional spending the Medicare Spending is once again placed on the backs of the doctors.
As anyone who has had their pay cut knows the attitude and working situation of the person who is not getting paid is low if non existent. Why hasn’t congress cut their pay? This would make up a lot of money. How about cutting they pay of their staffers? The White House? All the of the government? Yet once again they seem to feel the right and ability to cut others. Wait till Obama finishes with Health Care. Call your congress man today, demand they cut their own pay first.
