This weekend was packed with news regarding ObamaCare. From CitizenWells comes news that Canadian Health Care is imploding.
There’s news that the public option may be taken off the table. I’m not going to believe it until members of Congress actually read the final bills.
The Swine Flu Vaccine is dangerous. I was in the military during the last forced vaccination in 1976 and it wasn’t pretty. I think I’ll take my chances with the H1N1.

The truth about Canadian health care:
“Top doctor says system ‘imploding’”
“SASKATOON–The incoming president of the Canadian Medical Association says Canada’s health-care system is sick and doctors need to develop a plan to cure it.
Dr. Anne Doig says patients are getting less than optimal care, and she adds that physicians from across the country – who will gather in Saskatoon today for their annual meeting – recognize that changes must be made.
“We all agree that the system is imploding, we all agree that things are more precarious than perhaps Canadians realize,” Doig told The Canadian Press.
“We know that there must be change,” she said. “We’re all running flat out, we’re all just trying to stay ahead of the immediate day-to-day demands.”
The pitch for change at the conference is to start with a presentation from Dr. Robert Ouellet, the current president of the CMA, who has said there’s a critical need to make Canada’s health-care system patient-centred….Continue Reading

Prevention: Is the swine flu jab safe?
A warning that the new swine flu jab is linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.
The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, has been leaked to The Mail on Sunday, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.
It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.
GBS attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal….Continue Reading
I wonder if this will be part of ObamaCare?

The Obama White House is abuzz with talk of witchcraft by first grandmother, 72-year-old Marian Robinson, who lives in the White House residence. A close friend of Michelle Obama says the president is furious at his mother-in-law after learning that she was practicing Santeria, an African spirit cult, in the White House.
“The president is quite upset about this on two different levels. First, he is a committed Christian, no matter what his critics say about Reverend Wright. He is adamant that Sasha and Malia be raised with Christian influences. He does not want them to be involved with African voodoo. And secondly, he is worried about the political fallout if his enemies get wind of this. Rev. Wright was bad enough, but this would be political suicide,” a close friend of Michelle’s confided….Continue Reading
This story illustrates why we don’t want the Federal Government anywhere close to our health care.
A NY State program to spend US $140 million of stimulus money on school supplies for children on welfare has backfired after families receiving the money spent it on other things including flat screen televisions, cigarettes and beer.
The program, initiated by NY Governor David Patterson, also got US $30 million in seed money from Socialist billionaire George Soros and the backing of New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg. The project broke down to about US $200 per family.
FOX News was tipped off to the mishap after Wal-Mart managers of welfare recipients buying flat-screen televisions with the extra stimulus money. Gas station owners from upstate New York also reported of beer and cigarette runs with welfare money….Continue Reading
It has been encouraging to see ordinary Americans taking a stand against most of Obama’s socialist policies. Michelle Malkin is urging America to keep it up. I wish we could move Congress to Gitmo and take away all their pens, paper, computers, phones, checkbooks, and paychecks. I bet the economy would turn around instantly!

At Hot Air, Ed Morrissey has compiled a very handy list of congressional representatives who have refused to show up for town hall meetings.
Ed jokingly calls them Milk Carton Politicians.
But the missing kids on milk cartons are mostly kidnap victims — abducted and missing against their will.
The lawmakers on the run from voters during this August recess are deliberate runaways from accountability. They are intentional absconders from public scrutiny.
The congressional cowards belong on Fugitive Watch posters. Keep on them….Continue Reading
Obama’s Israel Policy – JiBamahad
The following article comes from the far, far left so beware. It is clear to me that Obama is no friend of Israel and eight weeks is that much closer to a nuclear armed Iran.

Israeli media reports that visiting National Security Adviser General Jim Jones and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates have told the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop complaining about Iran because the US is preparing to take action “in eight weeks” demonstrate that even when everything changes in Washington, nothing changes. President Barack Obama has claimed that a peaceful settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is a high priority but the Israelis and their allies in congress and the media have been able to stonewall the issue. Israel has made no concessions on its settlement policy, which is rightly seen as the single biggest obstacle to eventual creation of a Palestinian state, and has instead pushed ahead with new building and confiscations of Arab homes. Obama has protested both Israeli actions but done nothing else, meaning that Israel has determined that the new US president’s policies are toothless, giving it a free hand to deal with the Arabs. Vice President Joe Biden’s comments that Israel is free to attack Iran if it sees fit was a warning that worse might be coming. If the Israeli reports are true, it would appear that the Obama Administration has now bought completely into the Israeli view of Iran and is indicating to Tel Aviv that it will fall into line to bring the Mullahs to their knees. In short, Israel gets what it wants and Washington yet again surrenders….Continue Reading
Only Obama’s Friends Have Rights –
From Altas Shrugs:
This is the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (here)
Here is but the latest act of submission to Islam by your State department. Perhaps this is an initiative of Obama’s newly created Office for Outreach to the Ummah at the State Department.
The Bureau of International Information Programs (IIP) has assembled a range of innovative and traditional tools to support Posts’ outreach activities during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
We act as if we were a slave of the muslim world. This sickness of licking the boots of an ideology that wants to destroy us is incomprehensible. Burt Prelutsky wrote:
What is wrong with our leaders? Are they worried that they won’t be invited to those cool Ramadan parties? The Islamists have been actively at war with us for 30 years and generally at war with western civilization for well over a thousand years, and still we pay lip service to these people in a way we never did with Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan or the Soviet Union. Is it because the Muslims commit sadism and murder in the name of religion and not country? If anything, I would think that would make their evil acts all the more contemptible.
Seriously, can you imagine every Embassy and consulate putting up a Menorah and having some Rabbis as speakers via a webcast?
Can you imagine if we had the stations of the cross put on the walls of all of our Embassies, Consulates, and other posts, as well as the many DOS buildings across the country, including C street? …Continue Reading
