Dr. Williamson took an oath to practice the best of medicine for all people. He CARES and he problaby read and surely knows more about health policies than Obama. He is talking about his profession not a hobby he took up. I hope you enjoy Congress planning to treat you for your health problems, while they have a special policy of their own.

“California public union OKs strike authorization”
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – California’s largest state employees’ union voted on Saturday to approve a strike authorization measure to protest furloughs of state workers and pressure state officials to ratify its labor contract.

“The objective of specialization is to know more and more about less and less. Ultimately this means knowing everything… about nothing.”
Aha….You’ve now given me a purpose in life……or as former Major League pitcher Larry Andersen once said, “All I want is less to do, more time to do it, and more money for not getting it done.”
Or as another sage I knew said, “What I really want is a job working from 12 to 1, with an hour for lunch.”

“Dr. Williamson took an oath to practice the best of medicine for all people. He CARES and he problaby read and surely knows more about health policies than Obama.”
But he is not a lawyer, and he was stating what he THINKS about this bill. The bill is not even in final form, so he does not KNOW what the bill will say…and since he does not know that, he does not know it’s effects either. He’s just guessing.
” He is talking about his profession not a hobby he took up.”
No, he is not. He is commenting on a bill before Congress…which has nothing to do with his profession. It MIGHT effect his profesion in the future, but he does not know that. It most probably will only effect how he gets paid..but that is just MY GUESS. The difference is, I’m not afraid to call it what it is: just a guess. You, on the other hand, seem to prefer to take a Doctor’s guess as gospel.
” I hope you enjoy Congress planning to treat you for your health problems, while they have a special policy of their own”

Yeah, I was thinking more along the lines of: is this a good wine for pouring down my throat? I enjoyed it with a dinner of grilled shrimp and breaded fish fillets. I was wondering if there is a better bottle of this.

Over 2000 comments stemming from a “see ya, suckers” post. That should give Jay something to write about upon his return, especially if he is armed with nothing more than yarns about the ones that got away.

Russia warned Georgia on Aug. 1 that its troops will consider using force if Georgia continues “provocations,” Agence France-Presse reported. The Russian Defense Ministry said that over the past four days, Georgia fired mortars and grenades on the capital of the breakaway Georgian province of South Ossetia. A Georgian Interior Ministry spokesman denied that any shooting took place. Russian officials said the shootings were an attempt to stir up trouble; Georgia said Russia could be “searching for a pretext” for military action. A spokesman for the European Union Monitoring Mission in Georgia said monitors found no evidence of shooting.

3000 before the angry blog gods return?
Where’s yosef nix when you need him?
August 1st, 200911:11 pm
The reason I asked about the OZ blog host is because I stumbled into the site today. Appear to be a bunch of high-brows pontificating on the condition of the economy. Latest article has the American economy collapsing…the administration is corrupt…blah blah blah. Anyhoo
I go thru archives. Mid November, 2008, they’re all a-tizzy in anticipation of Obama winning. Were very angry about Bush’s TARP. The host had written a column addressed to Obama (letter form) saying that he, “O” held promise, then proceeded to advice him on how to deal with the economy because he didn’t believe Obama had a good grasp of economics — let the banks and auto manufacturers fall. “Don’t follow Bush’s mistake.”
Whoops! Looks like they hooked their wagon to the wrong donkey.
When I first went in I would have sworn it was a conservative site.
Forget josef for 3000, too many of his posts get sent to time out anyway. What we need is for somebody to get a computer to whatever padded room finch is being warehoused in.
August 1st, 200911:14 pm
And what part of that site made you think I was a visitor?
/Or did they have nekkid lady wallpaper? (IWH)
August 1st, 200911:20 pm
I didn’t think you were a visitor, RW. I’ve never been to a site where the host didn’t offer up a profile. I thought maybe you had.
Nekkid! that reminds me.
Did you say you were going to see a doctor in Oakland, CA? Are you planning on visiting any strip clubs?

“Afghan mission falls short of expectations: Lawmakers”
“We conclude that the international effort in Afghanistan since 2001 has delivered much less than it promised and that its impact has been significantly diluted by the absence of a unified vision and strategy grounded in the realities of Afghanistan’s history, culture and politics,” the report said.

“Remains Identified as Navy Captain Michael Scott Speicher”
The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP) has positively identified remains recovered in Iraq as those of Captain Michael Scott Speicher. Captain Speicher was shot down flying a combat mission in an F/A-18 Hornet over west-central Iraq on January 17th, 1991 during Operation Desert Storm.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Captain Speicher’s family for the ultimate sacrifice he made for his country,” said Ray Mabus, Secretary of the Navy. “I am also extremely grateful to all those who have worked so tirelessly over the last 18 years to bring Captain Speicher home.”
“Our Navy will never give up looking for a shipmate, regardless of how long or how difficult that search may be,” said Admiral Gary Roughead, Chief of Naval Operations. “We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Captain Speicher and his family for the sacrifice they have made for our nation and the example of strength they have set for all of us.”
Acting on information provided by an Iraqi citizen in early July, US Marines stationed in Al Anbar Province went to a location in the desert which was believed to be the crash site of Captain Speicher’s jet. The Iraqi citizen stated he knew of two Iraqi citizens who recalled an American jet impacting the desert and the remains of the pilot being buried in the desert. One of these Iraqi citizens stated that they were present when Captain Speicher was found dead at the crash site by Bedouins and his remains buried. The Iraqi citizens led US Marines to the site who searched the area. Remains were recovered over several days during the past week and flown to Dover Air Force Base for scientific identification by the AFIP’s Office of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner.
The recovered remains include bones and multiple skeletal fragments. Positive identification was made by comparing Captain Speicher’s dental records with the jawbone recovered at the site. The teeth are a match, both visually and radiographically.
While dental records have confirmed the remains to be those of Captain Speicher, the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology DNA Lab in Rockville, Maryland is running DNA tests on the remains recovered in Iraq and comparing them to DNA reference samples previously provided by family members. Results will take approximately 24 hours.

This is totally disgusting-
The 1944 uprising was led by the Home Army — commanded by Poland’s London-based government-in-exile — which secretly deployed around 50,000 fighters in Warsaw.
Around 18,000 Polish fighters died in the revolt, and some 17,000 Nazi troops. Around 200,000 civilians were massacred, or killed by crossfire and bombing, as the Nazis took Warsaw back street by street.-AFP/ Breitbart
The Nazis took back Warsaw street by street AS they massacred “civilians,” or the people better known as the Jews, who were purposefully imprisoned there.
Denying the holocaust, are we?
The Nazis expelled Warsaw’s remaining 500,000 inhabitants and razed the city.

Fla. highrise has 32 stories, but just 1 tenant
That is just disgusting. If Bush had only had the foresight to give us a free-market economy, that could have been a 64-story highrise. He should have known, given his business experience and education, that simply throwing all those tax dollars, on loan from Communist China, at it would not get the job done.

But this summer has been conspicuously different in New York City. Not one 99-degree day in Central Park. Not a single day that the temperature even approached 90. For just the second time in 140 years of record keeping, the temperature failed to reach 90 in either June or July.

“The Global Warming International Center (GWIC) is the international body disseminating information on global warming science and policy, serving both governamental, non-governamental organizations, and industries in more than 145 countries. It sponsors unbiased research supporting the understanding of global warming and its mitigation.”
“When Al Gore’s film, An Inconvenient Truth (AIT), came out in 2006, I expected to see some hard-hitting criticism by scientists of Gore’s unfounded alarmism and by economists of his blithe disregard of the human suffering that energy rationing (cap-and-trade) and mandatory reliance on costly and under-performing renewable energy would inflict on low-income households and poor countries. However, with a few notable exceptions, Gore’s film got mostly rave reviews, earned an Academy Award, and later helped bag him the Nobel Prize.”

“FACT CHECK: Distortions rife in health care debate”
WASHINGTON (AP) – Confusing claims and outright distortions have animated the national debate over changes in the health care system. Opponents of proposals by President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats falsely claim that government agents will force elderly people to discuss end-of-life wishes. Obama has played down the possibility that a health care overhaul would cause large numbers of people to change doctors and insurers.

America Hears a Gaffe, Russia Sees a Plot
But in Russia, they weren’t shrugging. Within hours, a top Kremlin aide had released a barbed statement comparing Mr. Biden to Dick Cheney. Commentators announced Mr. Biden’s emergence as Washington’s new “gray cardinal” — the figure who, from the shadows, makes all the decisions that matter.
Among the reasons for their skepticism: In today’s Russia, politicians just don’t run off at the mouth. Not so long ago, Russian public life was a symphony of embarrassing episodes. Remember when Boris Yeltsin confused Norway with Sweden, suggested that Germany and Japan had nuclear arsenals, and toppled over while saluting an honor guard in Uzbekistan?
That all ended with the presidency of Vladimir V. Putin. Mr. Putin, now Russia’s prime minister, occasionally departs from statesmanlike language, as when he threatened to hang the Georgian president by his testicles or offered a French reporter an especially thorough circumcision. But coming from Mr. Putin, these statements are expressions of Russian might, something like a political philosophy — never, ever mistakes.
“Nothing accidental can happen in this system,” Mr. Ryabov said. “Everything has a hidden meaning.” Even accidental words from officials are likely to be read closely; as a Russian proverb has it, “What a sober man has on his mind, a drunk puts on his tongue.”
Mr. Pushkov was among those who put little credence in Mr. Obama’s overtures, and to him, Mr. Biden’s words offer a far more honest assessment of American policy. He says he reads in them a split in Washington between cold war heavyweights and a president too weak to bring them to heel.
I like Joe but Dick Cheney he ain’t.

“Geithner Won’t Rule Out New Taxes for Middle Class”
To get the economy back on track, will President Barack Obama have to break his pledge not to raise taxes on 95 percent of Americans? In a “This Week” exclusive, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner told me, “We’re going to have to do what’s necessary.”

I fought to secure for Nevada more than $1.5 billion of that funding, and ensured our state received the largest increase in Medicaid funding of any state in the country.
As the Las Vegas Sun reported last month, those investments are paying dividends. This summer 2,000 more young people have been able to get summer jobs, we’ve created nearly 300 new jobs for teachers and support staff in Clark County schools, and the Centennial Hills Park and Ride will lead to as many as 1,000 more jobs. In just the past month alone, the transportation and utilities industries added 800 jobs.-Hairy Reed
Oh gee, thanks Hairy-
CARSON CITY, Nev. — Nevada’s unemployment rate jumped from 11 percent in May to a record 12 percent in June, the highest since the state started tracking the rates in the mid-1970s, according to a state report Friday.
Bill Anderson, the agency’s chief economist, said about 169,800 Nevadans were out of work during the month, up 15,600 from May. Statewide, about 1.2 million held jobs.
1.5 Billion gone, so how long will your kids pay for Hairy’s 2000 minimum wage fake jobs?

Actually, the experts (not those that just like to act like they know what they’re talking about based on temperature measurements in their backyards or something as equally absurd) predicted the slight cooling in the average global temperature years ago.

Greensoan upbeat as well:
“Greenspan: ‘We’ve already seen the bottom’”
Tons of news today from my exclusive interview with Alan Greenspan. The former Fed Chair told me he’s “pretty sure we’ve already seen the bottom.” Greenspan listed a number of reasons for his positive outlook, citing upward production trends in several industries and the recovery of the financial system. “There’s been a very significant improvement in the financial system and it’s been the financial system where the problems have been.”
Actually, the experts (not those that just like to act like they know what they’re talking about based on temperature measurements in their backyards or something as equally absurd) predicted the slight cooling in the average global temperature years ago

“Have any states managed to avoid this sort of budgetary mess – and, if so, how?”
August 2nd, 200912:48 pm
TN- You libs are grasping at straws now?
Greenspan will also be remembered for two very dumb moves. The first was to support George W Bush’s mammoth tax cut in 2001, whose benefits went largely to the very rich. The 1990s boom had created a budget surplus that otherwise could have been used to expand affordable health insurance and improve the nation’s schools, but Greenspan preferred a tax cut, and his support was crucial to Bush. Within months of the cut, the surplus was gone.
Greenspan’s worst move was to contribute to the giant housing bubble and the worst worldwide crash since the Great Depression. In 2004 he lowered interest rates to 1%, enabling banks to borrow money for free, adjusted for inflation. Naturally, the banks wanted to borrow as much as they possibly could, then lend it out, earning nice profits. The situation screamed for government oversight of lending institutions, lest the banks lend to unfit borrowers. He refused, trusting the market to weed out bad credit risks. It did not.-Robert “Third” Reich, Obozo’ economic advisor

Well, the Rev. Postlewaite let loose a humdinger at services this a.m., blasting this Obama health care and saying we need another big tax cut like My President give in 2001. He talked about how the funerals for old folk are going to come so fast preachers won’t hardly have time to eat or preach if this Obama health care passes. He said once taxes go back to the old rates at the end of next year the rich people will be forced to lay everybody off and we’ll have people starving to death. Just thinking about it is a big downer on my Sabbath.
Anyhow, me and the missus are headed down to Ryans. I’m telling you now so you won’t take your life in your hands by getting in the food line there in front of her. That woman can eat and she ain’t too picky about what she bites into when she’s hungry. Have a good Sabbath everybody.

He’s the guy who never saw the meltdown coming…….and besides none of it was his fault he said.
August 2nd, 20092:01 pm
I really enjoyed hearing Greenspan, in the not too distant past, finally acknowledging that he was basically wrong in his earlier beliefs that unfettered man would operate in self-preservation mode. He found out that man’s greed and lust were enough to overcome even the pain of eating oneself once all others have been devoured. It is a sight to behold though.

“Greenspan Admits Errors to Hostile House Panel”
“Alan Greenspan, lauded in Congress while the economy boomed, conceded under harsh questioning from lawmakers that he had made mistakes during his long tenure as Federal Reserve chairman that may have worsened the current slump.”
I tend to agree with Queen Pinko on this one, with Obozo running the economy, we had all better hope there are unemployment benefits aplenty.
Unless you are a lawyer, of course.

Truly fascinating watching the cons evolve early in Obama’s rise to power. First, they were angry and sore losers. From day one, they attacked our new President even calling for him to fail in a time of war.Forgetting the last eight years of gop destruction, they do not want the dems to succeed in getting their country back on track.
They started a birth certificate conspiracy and the gop decided to jump in bed with the lunatic fringe. Now, Obama is the antichrist.
Yes, it is early in the Obama presidency but the cons are totally unhinged. What will the cons come up with next?
Stay tuned and their lunacy is what makes politics fun.

He did, however, go out on top.
Stepping down today after more than 18 years leading the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan is going out on top.
More than seven in 10 Americans approve of the way Greenspan handled his job as Fed chairman, far eclipsing ratings for President Bush and other administration leaders. Defying the partisanship that splits the nation on many issues, Greenspan leaves with high grades from Democrats, Republicans and independents alike.
Of course the public is fickle when it comes to approval.
Federal Reserve’s ‘approval’ ratings lag even the IRS’
Hard to say how much the public blames Greenspan for the current woes. I can’t find a current poll on Greenspan.

Obama’s “wedge” issue.
Gallup — 68% of Russians approve of President Medvedev’s leadership and 77% approve of Putin’s leadership.

How many of you have worn lipstick and blush?

I just watched the clips from This Week’s roundtable.
Malkin made a complete fool of herself.
And predictably, the wingnuts cheer.

How many of you have really read the provisions in the health care bill? Some of them will chill you. Read sect 1233, page 45. It may not matter too much to those who are under 30 or so but to those of us in the autumn of our lives, it is a chilling reminder of what government can and will do to those who depend on the government for health care. I am not sure that too many of the House members and the the members of the Senate have signed up for this fiasco. Send them an e-mail and ask them if they are going to participate. I am sure that Bozo and the family will keep their same health care insurance that most of those in elected office hang onto…. certainly not what they are proposing. Ask them…. it might not surprise you. It certainly won’t surprise me.
