Log of Infamy:

  • Sixty filibuster votes in the senate with another clown on their roll call–Clown-Franken has stolen his way into his Democratic seat.–Another lying SOB in a sea of lying SOB’s.

Franken the Ass

The bad news: Franken’s “win” gives the Libs a 60-vote filibuster proof pass to push through their America-hating agenda to move us closer and closer to Marxism and socialism.

Any rays of hope? Only that the more conservative democrats and Blue Dog Democrats might save us, but even that hope is dim in light of the 8 Cap and Trade Traitors who voted FOR Cap and Trade….

  • Cap and Trade/ACES (American Clean Energy and Security Act) passes in the House with 8–COUNT THEM–Traitor-Republican votes

The bad news: Based on false premises of an unproven “global warming,” Cap and Trade or ACES (the “new” name to take your focus off of the old name–same old crap) will serve to place such tax burdens on not only farmers and businesses that compete with other countries who do not have such foolish, burdensome regulations but also on the consumer who will have heavy regulations placed on him/her in every possible arena. Try to sell a house? Energy regulations will make it almost impossible in a climate that is already impossible.

For more than six decades, tariffs and non-tariff barriers against international trade have been falling around the world, enabling more and more countries to enter global markets, grow, and prosper. Reversing that progress in an attempt to lower greenhouse gas emissions will lead to a contraction of international trade that will leave everyone worse off.

Any rays of hope? We are anxiously awaiting for the Senate vote which may suffer the same fate as the House vote (due to traitorous Republicans who refuse to honor their constituency’s voice). We have no hope if it passes the Senate. For those with small businesses, time to take your business to India or China.

  • B.O. continues his lying promises about socialistic/universal health care: He keeps evading the discussion about competition between government run health care and private sector health care. You see, the private run,high quality state-of-the-art health care most of us presently enjoy needs to make a profit to survive; it will eventually be forced out of business when “competing” against the government run “free” health care that is substandard (will explain why below) and can be constantly “bailed out” by our tax dollars.  Obama will set up a “board” who will make decisions about our healthcare, who is qualified to receive  it and how much we will receive and when. The latest slap in the face was added to the health care “reform” bill by making senators exempt from having to use it. It is not good enough for them but perfectly acceptable for us. The story below is my favorite one that portrays the hypocrasy of this bill:
Member of the {Obama town hall } audience.  Jane Sturm: “My mother is now over 105.  But at 100, the doctors said to her, ‘I can’t do anything more unless you have a pacemaker.’  I said, ‘Go for it.’  She said, ‘Go for it.’  But the specialist said, ‘No, she’s too old.’  But when the other specialist saw her and saw her joy of life, he said, ‘I’m going for it.’  That was over five years ago.  My question to you is:  Outside the medical criteria for prolonging life for somebody who is elderly, is there any consideration that can be given for a certain spirit, a certain joy of living, a quality of life, or is it just a medical cutoff at a certain age?”
Obama:  “I don’t think that we can make judgments based on people’s ‘spirit.’  Uh, that would be, uh, a pretty subjective decision to be making.  I think we have to have rules that, uh, say that, uh, we are going to provide good quality care for all people.  End-of-life care is one of the most difficult sets of decisions that we’re going to have to make.  But understand that those decisions are already being made in one way or another.  If they’re not being made under Medicare and Medicaid, they’re being made by private insurers.  At least we can let doctors know — and your mom know — that you know what, maybe this isn’t going to help.  Maybe you’re better off, uhh, not having the surgery, but, uhh, taking the painkiller.”  Do you realize how cold and heartless that answer is?  This woman is asking about her mother.  And everywhere she went, except one doctor, refused to put in the pacemaker.  “Nah, she’s too old; she’s going to die anyway.”So they found a specialist: “Maybe this woman really loves living.  I’ll put it in.”  She’s lived five years with the pacemaker, and still Obama: “Maybe you’re better off to tell your mother to take a pill, take a painkiller.”  See, we have to have rules.  “We have to have rules.  Your mother should have died five years ago, lady.  She would have been better off taking that painkiller.” Who says we have to have his rules?  The President of the United States is not a king.  He’s not an autocrat.  He’s not a ruler.  He doesn’t get to set the rules.  Obama has taken it upon himself to do so.  This woman found a way to get her mother a pacemaker.  With Obamacare, you just heard the answer:  It wouldn’t have happened.  I know how this stuff works.(RushLimbaugh.com)

Obama Socialist

The bad news: If this passes, it will take time to outrun the private sector health care but slowly as more and more businesses opt out of providing the perks of health care for their employees and leave them to the free substandard Obamacare, the private sector health care will die out. And the care IS substandard. Many people in other countries come to the USA to get health care due to their own countries’ socialized medicine which forces them to either wait or forego treatment due to denial based on government control of who/when/where/how they can or cannot access health care. Many older people will be denied healthcare which could have prolonged their lives 10 years (government decided they were too old–spirit, will, level of health be damned). Though painful, many illnesses or injuries will be forced to wait. The government has declared your illness or injury is not important and you can live with let’s say incontinence for a few years until you move further up in line. Some drugs will be denied you as the government won’t pay for them even if they happen to be the only drugs which will help you.  That’s why foreigners are coming here in droves for health care they cannot get in England or Canada or France.

Any rays of hope? Again, stopping this will be almost impossible with the votes in the Senate being filibuster-proof. Worse, with the provision that Senators won’t suffer the same health care fate as the rest of us, why would they not vote for “the rest of us” getting substandard care–it looks good to be “saving” the nation with this bill of destruction.  “….if Mr. Obama signs into law a “public option,” government-run insurance program as part of health-care reform we won’t be able to undo the damage.” (Karl Rove, Wall Street Journal, 6-11-2009)

And who is it who is needing health care? The Statist would have you believe it is everyone when in truth, of the 47 million stated to “need” health care in this country…

Everyone has access to health care. They may not have health insurance, but the law mandates everyone who shows up at emergency rooms must be treated, insurance or not, he reports.

About 14 mn of the uninsured were eligible for Medicaid and SCHIP 2003, a BlueCross-BlueShield Association study based on 2003 data estimated. These people would be signed up for government insurance if they ever made it to the emergency room, Sullivan says.

A whopping 70% of uninsured children are eligible for Medicaid, SCHIP, or both programs, a 2008 study by the Georgetown University Health Policy Institute shows.

Census figures also show that 18.3 mn of the uninsured were under 34 who may simply not think about the need for insurance, Sullivan reports.

And of those 46 mn without insurance, an estimated 10 mn or so are non-U.S. citizens who may not be eligible, according to statistics from the Census Bureau), Sullivan reports….

Many may be able to afford health insurance, but for whatever reason choose to not buy it. In 2007, an estimated 17.6 mn of the uninsured made more than $50,000 per year, and 10 mn of those made more than $75,000 a year, says Sally Pipes, author of the book, The Top Ten Myths of American Health Care: A Citizen’s Guide, a book that attempts to dig behind the numbers. According to author Pipes, 38% of the U.S. uninsured population earns more than $50,000 per year.

That means 38% of the uninsured likely make enough to afford health insurance, but for undetermined reasons choose not to buy it…..

According to the CBO, about half of the uninsured in 2009 fall into one of the following three categories. Some people will be in more than one of those categories at the same time:

*Nearly one out of three, 30%, will be offered, but will decline, coverage from an employer.

*Nearly one out of five, 18%, will be eligible for, but not enrolled in Medicaid; and

*More than one out of seven, 17%, will have family income above 300% of the poverty level (about $65,000 for a family of four);

What is potentially the real number for the poor uninsured? According to a 2003 Blue Cross study, 8.2 mn Americans are actually without coverage for the long haul, because they are too poor to purchase health care, but earn too much to qualify for government assistance.

http://emac.blogs.foxbusiness.com/2009/06/23/health-care-myths/

This is a much easier fix. One incredibly brilliant suggestion is to give a tax break to all Americans for the sole purpose of purchasing their own health care.  But the statists are too threatened to put that decision into the individual citizens’ hands; after all, the power-hungry statist knows best for everyone.

  • Illegals’ Amnesty is in the works and on the horizon set for late this year:

The bad news:

Legalization Not the Answer

The idea that legalization is the best solution to America’s immigration problem is being suggested with increasing frequency. In fact, the Senate hearing’s witnesses, including Alan Greenspan, seemed suggest the idea that legalization would somehow be an economic stimulus. But this policy of amnesty first and security and enforcement later is a recipe for disaster that would only hurt the nation. Heritage.org explains:

It Is Not an Economic Stimulus
It Erodes Rule of Law
It Threatens Immigrant Safety

Instead, they suggest:

Congress needs to move beyond the idea of a comprehensive approach to immigration reform and instead adopt a segmented strategy that addresses each element of the problem individually.

Keep the Border Secure
Promote Economic Development and Good Governance in Latin America
Enhance Legal Worker Programs
Reform USCIS (Reforming U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services)
Enforce Immigration and Workplace Laws

Any rays of hope? Not really. Only in prevention can we save our country. Once amnesty occurs, the US will be relegated to a nationwide one-group political party that in my opinion, will spell the end of America.

I know many are fighting against the foreboding evils listed here, but it is exhausting and some are languishing in despair. I now know how our forefathers felt when they were ridiculed and called names for fighting against Great Britian for their freedom. I still believe in the American people and their spirit which Obama has not yet killed. I can only pray we can take the right steps in time to save us from the dictator-like world he is working feverishly to create. All I can say is fight, fight, fight—write—fax—call—show up and never, ever give up.
