Free Speech for All or Some?

Yes, folks. We have another dumb-sh*t religious goon making legitimate Christians look like intolerant *sses. I speak, of course, of the Rev. Terry Jones, of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla. He’s gonna burn Quran.  *sigh*

China and Iran

Posted in National by muzeuterpe on February 18, 2010

I have been wrong many times, and may be right now.  But I believe that China will give great consideration to selling our debt to Iran, in exchange for oil.

China’s silence sometimes speaks volumes, and with growing international momentum for new sanctions on Iran, Beijing’s recent reticence suggests it may give ground if it can insulate its oil and business ties.

China has repeatedly said in recent months that expanded U.N. sanctions on Iran are not the way to draw Tehran into serious talks about curtailing its uranium enrichment programme, which Western powers say could lay the groundwork for a nuclear weapons capability.

The amount of our debt that China owns is staggering. We can’t possibly pay it back. We are owned.

Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit………

Obama repeatedly vowed during the 2008 presidential election campaign that he would not raise taxes on individuals making less than $200,000 and households earning less than $250,000 a year. When senior White House economic adviser Lawrence H. Summers and Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner suggested in August that the administration might be open to going back on that pledge, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs quickly reiterated the president’s promise.

Hows that hopey changey thing goin for ya?

Oh I love it!

Climategate U-turn as scientist at centre of row admits: There has been no global warming since 1995

Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.

And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.

World may not be warming, say scientists

Christy has published research papers looking at these effects in three different regions: east Africa, and the American states of California and Alabama.

“The story is the same for each one,” he said. “The popular data sets show a lot of warming but the apparent temperature rise was actually caused by local factors affecting the weather stations, such as land development.”

When are they going to come clean? And when will those who earned exorbitant profits off this lie be given the Madoff treatment?

So the Dems and the Big O are pissed about blocked appointments?

If the Senate does not act — and I made this very clear — if the Senate does not act to confirm these nominees, I will consider making several recess appointments during the upcoming recess, because we can’t afford to allow politics to stand in the way of a well-functioning government.”…

The actions of Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Alabama, and other Republican obstructionists will continue if President Obama allows them to run roughshod over him. When you’re the top dog, you do what you have to do to govern. Allowing Republican senators to continue to deny your appointments is nonsense.

Well … kiss my @ss and let’s have a flashback ….

Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the majority leader, chose to schedule the so-called pro forma sessions because Mr. Bush took advantage of past recesses to install nominees including John R. Bolton, as ambassador to the United Nations, and, most recently, Sam Fox, a donor to Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, as ambassador to Belgium. This time, Democrats were particularly suspicious of plans to appoint as surgeon general a nominee they oppose.

“This is the first time that pro formas have been used to block recess appointments,” said Jim Manley, a spokesman for Mr. Reid.

Some of you people act as if Dems have never stood in the way of anything.

Ahhhhhh ….. Change. Ain’t it great?

Feds push for tracking cell phones

 the Obama administration has argued that warrantless tracking is permitted because Americans enjoy no “reasonable expectation of privacy” in their–or at least their cell phones’–whereabouts. U.S. Department of Justice lawyers say that “a customer’s Fourth Amendment rights are not violated when the phone company reveals to the government its own records” that show where a mobile device placed and received calls.

Now, what was that about warrantless wiretapping?

Nah! There won’t be any rationing of care …

Mayo Clinic in Arizona to Stop Treating Some Medicare Patients

Dec. 31 (Bloomberg) — The Mayo Clinic, praised by President Barack Obama as a national model for efficient health care, will stop accepting Medicare patients as of tomorrow at one of its primary-care clinics in Arizona, saying the U.S. government pays too little.

More than 3,000 patients eligible for Medicare, the government’s largest health-insurance program, will be forced to pay cash if they want to continue seeing their doctors at a Mayo family clinic in Glendale, northwest of Phoenix, said Michael Yardley, a Mayo spokesman. The decision, which Yardley called a two-year pilot project, won’t affect other Mayo facilities in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota.

Full article.

The government won’t need to ration healthcare, the market will take care of it. Scarcity of medical resources will set in and citizens of this country will receive care in the same way we received the bogus swine flu shot. The ineptitude of the government will become personal to the people. That is, it won’t just be some cloud government interferring with your “right” not to wear a seatbelt. Everyone will be affected, and directly.

You won’t be able to run to the doc for that headcold. Why? Because it is too expensive to see people who are just a little sick. We need he doctor’s time for people who are REALLY sick. You’ll have to get your little neti pot and herbs and take care of it the natural way. Big Pharma won’t be doing much R&D so we’ll all be walking to the library to find books on traditional healing.

But don’t worry. The government has tons of experience providing medical care. Just look at the great care our Veterans get. Why, it’s in so much demand that you don’t dare miss your appointment. If you do, it takes you six months to get another one.

Stories of neglect and substandard care have flooded in from soldiers, their family members, veterans, doctors and nurses working inside the system. They describe depressing living conditions for outpatients at other military bases around the country, from Fort Lewis in Washington state to Fort Dix in New Jersey. They tell stories — their own versions, not verified — of callous responses to combat stress and a system ill equipped to handle another generation of psychologically scarred vets.

Boy oh boy, I just can’t wait till the government provides my healthcare.

“If I weren’t president, I would be happy to catch the shuttle with my wife to take her to a Broadway show, as I had promised her during the campaign, and there would be no fuss and no muss and no photographers,” he said. “That would please me greatly.”

Waaaa! Waaaa! I wanted to be President but I didn’t know people would be mean to me.  Waaa! Waaa!

Come on people.  When you decide to stand for any political office, you know you are like velcro to media and criticism lint. The dumb-*ss stood in front of millions and boasted how ready he was for the job. His followers railled against those of us who questioned his experience (yet his followers cried fowl when you compared his to Palin’s). I thought he was gonna “hit the ground running” and not be held up with all the learning curve shit.

Please.

Who minded the vege garden while they traveled the world? He’s got all the time in the world to hold photo-shoots on the golf course and basketball court, where’s his time for our soldiers? 

He  lifted the 18-year ban on media coverage of the return of fallen soldiers but only finds time to stop in to pay respects when he’s taking a beating over his delay on a decision to increast troops to Afganistan. The ‘patriots for peace’ screamed “Bush Lied Troops Died”.  Where are they now that the Big O is sitting with his thumb up his *ss now?

He’s all show and no substance. He’s a fraud.
