Good news in the ‘clunker’ giveaway

Let’s see how this works:  The federal government  switches on the printing press to crank out $1 billion which is then given to individuals to buy cars preferred by the government from companies owned by the government, obligating those too young to drive, as well as the unborn, to pay off the printing press dollars. 

it’s a very popular program and, of course, politicians in power wish to continue it, doubling it to $2 billion by shifting printing-press dollars from a “renewable energy” loan program. While a number of Republicans oppose the Cash for Clunkers giveaway, Democrats can pass it at will.  If they come up a little shy on the vote count, Maine’s two Republicans, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, are always ready to cross the aisle.

The encouraging news in the clunkers deal, as far as I’m concerned, is that the leading replacement vehicle, according to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is the Ford Focus, a vehicle produced by a private-sector automobile company.  Ford reports that  its July sales were up 2.4 percent over the same month in 2008, the first year-over-year sales increase in 19 months. 

Even though it is a $3,500-to-$4,500 per car taxpayer subsidy and it does amount to corporate welfare and it does come at the expense of the quality of life of chilldren unborn, the kernel of good news is that all of the money is not going into the coffers of government car companies.  Ford’s free-enterprise engineers and designers have brought forth a car that people want, just as they all used to do — well, maybe not American Motors — before government took over the industry.

It is printing-press money and the deficit this year will be at least $1.8 trillion and it is stealing from the future for current consumption, but all that said, it’s better to spend the billions on clunker deals than to throw it away on pork projects as much of the $787 billion “stimulus” does.

Hey, I heard they found Obama’s “Kenyan” birth certificate!!! Unfortunately, it was people with the of IQ of maggots who forged it. What’s that poll? 40% of Republicans believe in this “Birther” nonsense?/? Now that speaks volumes of the level of intelligence left in the Republican party. LOL, all the intelligent folks left a while back and became Democrats or Independents. What should one expect of a party where INTELLECTUAL is a dirty word and where the likes of Sarah Palin are held up as role models?

All that’s left of the Republican Party is the sludge you see at these “organized” protests at town halls. Small minded and easily manipulated tools of the health care insurance companies pretty much describes the whole lot of them.

The industry’s biggest player, WellPoint, which operates Blue Cross plans in more than a dozen states and has 35 million members, may have the most to lose. Much of its profit come from selling coverage to individuals — the part of the system potentially subject to the greatest upheaval.

The other big insurers, including the UnitedHealth Group, Aetna and Cigna, rely more on offering group coverage through employers and have a smaller share of the individual market, and so may be more willing to go along with whatever Congress devises.

Ms. Ignagni, who is among the better-paid lobbyists, earning $1.6 million in 2007, insists there is no risk of a rift among insurers. The companies say that they came to their current position after significant discussion, in contrast to the early 1990s, and that despite the current tenor of the debate, they “intend to remain at the table,” said Ronald A. Williams, Aetna’s chief executive.

Some skeptics, including Wendell Potter, a former Cigna executive who has become a vocal critic of the industry for putting profits first, contend that insurers’ seeming consensus veils their opposition to real changes in the ways they do business.

Mr. Potter described Ms. Ignagni’s tactic of working with lawmakers as a “charm offensive.”

The proposal to create a government-run plan, which remains one of the main sources of division within Congress, could create the greatest rift among insurers.

If Congress and the president propose a government plan, and some insurers are willing to compromise, it could become “the first fracture in the coalition” of insurers, predicts Michael A. Turpin, a former senior executive for UnitedHealth and now a high-ranking official at USI Holdings, an insurance broker.

The End Of Obama’s Honeymoon

“It started out like a song we knew we had a good thing going. And if I wanted too much, was that such a mistake?” President Obama’s answer to composer Stephen Sondheim’s question would be “yes,” were he not a president who rarely admits error.

We are six months into the Obama reign, and he surely did have a good thing going until very recently. He pushed through what voters thought was a stimulus bill. He held numerous press conferences at which an adoring media allowed him to display his rhetorical skills. No mumbling George W. Bush, he. He toured the world, to the applause of adoring masses from London to Paris to Cairo. He fulfilled a campaign promise to tackle perceived global warming and lead the world to a cooler, greener future by urging Congress to pass a cap-and-trade bill aimed at cutting CO2 emissions. He bailed out General Motors and Chrysler, rewarding the United Auto Workers for delivering key states to him in last year’s election.

Then he made the mistake about which Sondheim wrote and Sinatra sang — he wanted too much. He attempted to push through Congress a so-called reform of the nation’s health care industry — a $1 trillion restructuring that would turn effective control of one-sixth of the economy over to government regulators and bureaucrats. Not a good idea: some 90 percent of Americans are satisfied with their health care, a majority think that the burgeoning deficit is more of a problem than health care, and 42 percent think his plan is a bad idea, while only 36 percent say it is a good idea (22 percent have no opinion).

It is too early to say that the presidential agenda is dead in the water. But it is not too early to say that he made some serious errors.

The stimulus not only failed to keep the unemployment rate to 8 percent, as Obama promised (it is now 9.5 percent). It also unleashed a flood of red ink that shifted voters’ attention to the implications of the deficit for their children’s and grandchildren’s standard of living. So when the president insisted that Congress pass a cap-and-trade program that will drive up energy costs, and a health care plan that will add more than a trillion dollars to the deficit or the tax burden over the next decade, Congress heard from unhappy constituents (39 percent strongly oppose his health plan while only 25 percent strongly support it), and momentum shifted from the president to more centrist congressional Democrats, who are doing what Republicans don’t have the votes to do: preventing the liberal Democratic leadership from taking a giant step to a government-controlled health care system.

The President has a 78-seat majority in the House of Representatives, and a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. He does not need a single Republican vote to pass any bill he sends to Congress. Still, he could not have his way with the Congress, and it now looks likely that he will have to trim his health-care program to get anything in the fall that he can declare a victory, which he will have to do if he is to avoid acute political embarrassment. Equally important, the president’s difficulty with Democratic centrists will inevitably slow the pace of his efforts to “transform” the entire American economy.

But slowing is not the same thing as derailing. The president remains popular, more popular than his policies. He is articulate, assured and, more important, not George W. Bush. No Republican has his communications skills, although he is subject to some ridicule for his ever-present teleprompters. And if the economy continues to recover, all will be forgiven.

Share prices are about 20 percent higher than when Obama took the oath of office. The index of leading economic indicators is up. Some banks — most notably Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase — are profitable enough to repay the bailout moneys meted out to them when it looked as if the financial system would collapse. Inventory liquidation is slowing and manufacturing activity seems to be recovering. Business investment is up, and Federal Reserve Board Chairman reports that the Fed’s support for the commercial paper market has fallen to one-third of crisis levels.

Perhaps most important, the housing sector might, only might, be “finding a bottom,” to use Wall Street lingo. Sales of existing homes are at their highest level since October 2008, and sales of new homes rose 11 percent in June. The much-watched Standard & Poor’s Case-Schiller index of house prices rose in May from the previous month for the first time in three years. Vacancy rates are down, as is the supply of unsold homes, now at its lowest level since October 2007. Housing starts rose 3.6 percent in June, and I am told that some builders in the hard-hit southwest have begun buying up land in anticipation of again constructing new homes. There is even talk of the “exit strategy” the Fed will adopt to reduce the money supply when the recovery proves durable.

Against that voters will have to weigh the fact that the unemployment rate has risen from 7.6 percent to 9.5 percent since Obama took office — some three million more people are out of work than early in the year. Perhaps even more crucially, there is the troubling, soaring deficit and the prospect of large tax increases or future inflation.

And the president cannot be certain that the economy has finally turned around. The banks still have an estimated $30 billion in commercial property loans to write off this year. Government efforts to modify mortgages so as to reduce foreclosures are floundering. Consumer sentiment fell in June, as consumers decided that the jobs market will not soon improve and “see little reason to believe that the economic stimulus package will improve their finances any time soon,” says Richard Curtin, director of the Reuters / University of Michigan survey.

So Obama has much to think about as he tallies his successes and failures. Other than the stimulus package, passed during the euphoria following his inauguration, his legislative program is stalled, and by members of his own party. The economy is doing better, but the indicator that most matters to voters — the unemployment rate — is headed up, rather than down. And the market sent a powerful signal this week: The auction of government bonds did not go well, forcing the Treasury to pay higher interest rates than in the recent past. That is a bad sign for a president who needs low rates to encourage business investment and sustain the fragile green shoots that must flower if the Democrats are to hold their gains in next November’s election.

It just might be that Obama had “a good thing going, going, gone.”

Republitards done be dead in da water for the rest of their miserable lives.

With Republican party leaders so constrained by ideological blinders that none of their positions is likely to produce gains among non-white minorities, especially Hispanics, the GOP is finding it has no real alternative but to revert to a “white voter” strategy.

It’s all very reminiscent of the party’s notorious Southern Strategy, which carried the GOP for decades. But that strategy backfired spectacularly in the 2006 and 2008 elections, and there’s no reason to think it will work any better in 2010 — especially given the ever-growing importance of the minority electorate

In this respect, even if the GOP picks up a few House and Senate seats in 2010, many of the party’s top analysts believe that it will remain mired in minority status through 2012 and beyond. Other analysts say it may even decline to the level of a minor regional party, with its only real strength in the South.

The sophomoric name calling is truly bipartisan.

Republicans had all three branches of government from the years 2000 – 2006. Their record is abysmal. They created wealth for the bankers and brokers and sent the middle class consumer into foreclosure and bankruptcy. The middle class investor in the market has lost 35% – 50% of the value of their retirement investment. The cleanup is going to take some time. While there are some signs of improvement in the economy there is nothing to cheer about yet. The stock market rally is fueled by improved corporate profits due to cost cutting, not expansion. The credit markets are still closed to many borrowers. State and municipal governments are slashing payroll and services in an attempt to balance their budgets after experiencing 30% declines in revenue over the last 8 – 10 months. It’s no time to rejoice. It’s going to take more than 7 months to clean up this mess.

So, the Obama administration is withholding information on the TAXPAYER CASH FOR CLUNKER PROGRAM, huh? Who here is not surprised at these shady, Chicago thugery politicians doing shady things behind the scenes?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is refusing to quickly release government records on its “cash-for-clunkers” rebate program that would substantiate — or undercut — White House claims of the program’s success, even as the president presses the Senate for a quick vote for $2 billion to boost car sales. The Transportation Department said it will provide the data as soon as possible but did not specify a time frame or promise release of the data before the Senate votes whether to spend $2 billion more on the program.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And you don’t think GE is in the pockets of this administration’s fascist green push? (For you mindless Obamabots, fascism is government control over private companies – so yes, we conservatives know EXACTLY what we’re talking about when throwing that word around, unlike to foul brained dimwits who throw around “racism” at the drop of a hat when someone says something against an Obama initiative).. But the bloody ironic thing is watching the envirowackos complain that the gubment TAXPAYER CASH (for clunker) Program won’t do anything for Al Gore’s kool aid church of global warming.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
WASHINGTON – “Cash for clunkers” could have the same effect on global warming pollution as shutting down the entire country — every automobile, every factory, every power plant — for an hour per year. That could rise to three hours if the program is extended by Congress and remains as popular as it is now. Compared to overall carbon dioxide emissions in the United States, the pollution savings from cash for clunkers do not noticeably move the fuel gauge. Environmental experts say the program — conceived primarily to stimulate the economy and jump-start the auto industry — is not an effective way to attack climate change.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And of course what wonderful gubment program run by these collectivist fascists on the modern Dimwit left would be complete without using TAXPAYER DOLLARS to fund abortion under a social health care plan. Here’s a thought, if the bimbo was too lazy to worry about birth control, make her pay for it out of her own pocket – or the baby daddy. If they don’t pay, they don’t get one, and the kid goes up for adoption. Public option MYASS.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
WASHINGTON (AP) – Health care legislation before Congress would allow a new government-sponsored insurance plan to cover abortions, a decision that would affect millions of women and recast federal policy on the divisive issue. Federal funds for abortions are now restricted to cases involving rape, incest or danger to the health of the mother. Abortion opponents say those restrictions should carry over to any health insurance sold through a new marketplace envisioned under the legislation, an exchange where people would choose private coverage or the public plan. Abortion rights supporters say that would have the effect of denying coverage for abortion to millions of women who now have it through workplace insurance and are expected to join the exchange.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And the news just keeps getting better and better from the Hypocrocrats – the same ones who bitch about the evil rich and their private planes. Oh the Pelosicrats are setting the needle off the scale in sheer arrogance, cronyism, and good old fashioned blatant hypocrisy. You think if a Republican administration and Congress approved of this the Dimwits on the left and their DNC media wouldn’t have cause a little OUTCRY over it?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Last year, lawmakers excoriated the CEOs of the Big Three automakers for traveling to Washington, D.C., by private jet to attend a hearing about a possible bailout of their companies.

But apparently Congress is not philosophically averse to private air travel: At the end of July, the House approved nearly $200 million for the Air Force to buy three elite Gulfstream jets for ferrying top government officials and Members of Congress.

The Air Force had asked for one Gulfstream 550 jet (price tag: about $65 million) as part of an ongoing upgrade of its passenger air service.

But the House Appropriations Committee, at its own initiative, added to the 2010 Defense appropriations bill another $132 million for two more airplanes and specified that they be assigned to the D.C.-area units that carry Members of Congress, military brass and top government officials.

Because the Appropriations Committee viewed the additional aircraft as an expansion of an existing Defense Department program, it did not treat the money for two more planes as an earmark, and the legislation does not disclose which Member had requested the additional money.

An Appropriations Committee staffer said the military was already planning to replace its passenger fleet, and the committee “looked at the request and decided they should speed up the replacement.”

The Gulfstream G550 is a luxury business jet, which the company advertises as featuring long-range flight capacity that “easily links Washington, D.C., with Dubai, London with Singapore and Tokyo with Paris.” The company’s promotional materials say, “The cabin aboard the G550 combines productivity with exceptional comfort. It features up to four distinct living areas, three temperature zones, a choice of 12 floor plan configurations with seating for up to 18 passengers.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And Newsbusters sure knows how to lay it out over all the Dimwits being upset on Obamajoker with a nice historical perspective of the Bush treatment: :

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2009/08/03/obama-joker-poster-starts-outrage-bush-joker-poster-not-so-much

Now who is REALLY tearing down America, abusing powers and giving them to czars, and ignoring the will of the PEOPLE against CommieCare again? Yep, the hypocrisy meter continues to jump off the scale.

Finally, exactly what did the DPRK gain from Bill Clinton’s little trip over to free some hostages as a directive from the Obama Administration? Do you think any of those people in Washington give a damn that is validates one of the most demonic, freedom hating, America hating, dangerous, thugery dictatorship the world has faced since WWII? You think they care about the long term consequences?

And Gitmo is in the news again. Why not just send them to San Francisco jails? Or do they even jail people out there in left wing land anymore?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Two congressional Republicans on Tuesday pushed back against plans being considered by the Obama administration to transfer Guantanamo Bay detainees into facilities in Michigan and Kansas.

On a conference call with reporters, Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas and Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan said they were blindsided by multiple media reports over the weekend that detainees might be moved to facilities in Leavenworth, Kan., and Standish, Mich.

As someone who delivers health care for a living as an MD, what I see as the most confused issue by far by Republicans in Congress, and distorted by the insurance company and pharma lobbyists besides the stupid fiction that older people whatever the word means, will be targeted or that euthenasia will be mandatory is that not enough people realize that the insurance companies are cancelling people in droves when they get significantly sick–not to mention that your doctor gets hassled and has his or her time wasted by insurance companies getting reimbursed to take care of you.

We have had it with busting our buts to stay educated and then not being able to use what we know on patients because insurance companies won’t cover good care or the referrals we might have to make to get the best care. Whatever you think, all of us get great satisfaction out of keeping up and applying the best medicine, the best meds, and the best procedures, but this paradigm of not being able to use them because insurance is cut off is going to go in the next few months.

And there is not a doctor who has not given a good amount of free care and time in this environment. You may not have had a problem YET, but we see them everyday–when someone who has paid premiums or her employer has and they will not cover breast cancer treatment, or protstate cancer treatment, or they won’t cover significant cardica care. Often they will raise the price for preventive care.

It’s a factt and well documented on CDC and ADA’s websites that as high as one third of people over the age of 60 contract glucose intolerance and eventually 23.1% of all people in this age group have diabetes.Type II AODM, and they will deny you or triple your rates often if this happens to you.

Men: 12.0 million, or 11.2% of all men aged 20 years or older have diabetes although nearly one third of them do not know it.

Women: 11.5 million, or 10.2% of all women aged 20 years or older have diabetes although nearly one quarter of them do not know it

We want to keep insurance companies from cancelling or denying these people and they could be and are you–pure and simple. No one wants to take your care; get between you and your doctor–hell insurance companies are already between way too many people and their doctor–and some of you will learn that the hard way if we can’t fix this. And fix it we will.

The families give a damn about having their daughters, mother, and wife back, and Bush was the best friend of a nuclear bomb equipped North Korea and Iran. The stupidity of his policies much like the Birthers and the Rent a Crowd for the town halls, sitting on his butt and doing nothing set North Korean nuclear disarmanant back 15 years. Now Iran has nuclear bomb capability a heart beat away. Thank Bush for that.

If it happened to you you’d be mush. It did zero to deal with a terrorist nation, and further the Obama administration has made it clear it changes nothing. If anything with Kim dying, it may change the paradigm with his son who is a big Michael Jordan fan and may be totally different. The odds are he won’t be like his father, but that country is like no other country and a huge amount of their population is imprisoned–whoops that’s right– a huge amount of the US is imprisoned–growing every day, and soon the Rent a Rabble crowd at town meetings is going to swell that population.

Guess all DEMwits are not created equally stupid. Some of them can actually count. They even know where the majority votes are that gets a candidate elected. In fact, a few of their operatives and strategists who know politics, run candidates that match their Republican opponents conservative credentials in districts that nearly never vote liberal.

Ah, such are the Blue Dogs.

Is that about right Senator Schumer? Would you call that a countervailing “Democrat Southern Strategy”?

However that one-shot strategy could make for a sticky political situation in 2010, considering the socialist liberal actions of the current Congress and President, in a country that is clearly a slightly right of center nation. (21% liberal, 39% centrist, 40% conservative)

Chuck Schumer doesn’t read your idiocy and neither do I.

If necessary, and we can’t educate the ignorant, we’ll pass the Senate Health committee bill or whatever it takesto get a public option and competition for the insurance companies. Apparently Smith is medically ignorant and doesn’t get that There are 23.6 million people in the United States, or 8% of the population, who have diabetes are having their rates doubled or tripled regardless of how well controlled and perfectly normal Hb1Acs for years.

Age 20 years or older: 23.5 million, or 10.7% of all people in this age group have diabetes.

Age 60 years or older: 12.2 million, or 23.1% of all people in this age group have diabetes.

Conservative WaPo columnist Kathleen Parker who has written a dozen columns about what an idiot Palen is wrote one about how stupid and destructive the Southern whacknut wingnuts are and how they are destroying the pubtard chances of any election or victory. On one hand, it’s great to see dummies making it easy for us to win. On the other, their needs to be an epidemiologic muti-center trial to try to detect whether there is a genetic cause for so much white stupidity in the South.

THEM DANG SOUTHERNERS
August 5, 2009

WASHINGTON — Southern writer Walker Percy liked to poke fun at Ohioans in his novels, just to even things out a bit.

“Usually Mississippians and Georgians are getting it from everybody, and Alabamians,” he once explained to an interviewer. “So, what’s wrong with making smart-aleck remarks about Ohio? Nobody puts Ohio down. Why shouldn’t I put Ohio down?”

Percy, the genial genius, laughed at his own remark.

Now, apparently, it’s the Buckeye State’s turn to poke back. In a fusillade of pique, Ohio Sen. George Voinovich charged that Southerners are what’s wrong with the Republican Party.

“We got too many Jim DeMints (South Carolina) and Tom Coburns (Oklahoma),” he told an interviewer with The Columbus Dispatch. “It’s the Southerners. They get on TV and go ‘errrr, errrrr.’ People hear them and say, ‘These people, they’re Southerners. The party’s being taken over by Southerners. What the hell they got to do with Ohio?”

Down South, people are trying to figure out what “errrr, errrrr” means. Jack Bass, author of eight books about social and political change in the South, speculated in an e-mail that Voinovich really meant grrrr, grrrrr, as in “growling canines whose bark scares more than do Obama’s purrs, especially with the Dow at a nine-month high.”

Whatever Voinovich’s sound effects were intended to convey, his meaning was clear enough: Those ignorant, right-wing, Bible-thumping rednecks are ruining the party.

Alas, Voinovich was not entirely wrong.

Not all Southern Republicans are wing nuts. Nor does the GOP have a monopoly on ignorance or racism. And, the South, for all its sins, is also lush with beauty, grace and mystery. Nevertheless, it is true that the GOP is fast becoming regionalized below the Mason-Dixon, and becoming increasingly associated with some of the South’s worst ideas.

It is not helpful (or surprising) that “birthers” — conspiracy theorists who have convinced themselves that Barack Obama is not a native son — have assumed kudzu qualities among Republicans in the South. In a poll commissioned by the liberal blog, Daily Kos, participants were asked: “Do you believe that Barack Obama was born in the United States of America or not?”

Hefty majorities in the Northeast, Midwest and West believe Obama was born in the U.S. But in the land of cotton, where old times are not by God forgotten, only 47 percent believe Obama was born in America and 30 percent aren’t sure.

Southern Republicans, it seems, have seceded from sanity.

Though Voinovich’s views may be shared by others in the party, it’s a tad late — not to mention ungrateful — to indict the South. Republicans have been harvesting Southern votes for decades from seeds strategically planted during the Civil Rights era. When Lyndon B. Johnson predicted in 1965 that the Voting Rights Act meant the South would go Republican for the next 50 years, he wasn’t just whistling Dixie.

A telling anecdote recounted by Pat Buchanan to New Yorker writer George Packer last year captures the dark spirit that still hovers around the GOP. In 1966 Buchanan and Richard Nixon were at the Wade Hampton Hotel in Columbia, S.C., where Nixon worked a crowd into a frenzy: “Buchanan recalls that the room was full of sweat, cigar smoke, and rage; the rhetoric, which was about patriotism and law and order, ‘burned the paint off the walls.’ As they left the hotel, Nixon said, ‘This is the future of this Party, right here in the South.’”

That same rage was on display again in the fall of 2008, but this time the frenzy was stimulated by a pretty gal with a mocking little wink. Sarah Palin may not have realized what she was doing, but Southerners weaned on Harper Lee heard the dog whistle.

The curious Republican campaign of 2008 may have galvanized a conservative Southern base — including many who were mostly concerned with the direction Democrats would take the country — but it also repelled others who simply bolted and ran the other way. Whatever legitimate concerns the GOP may historically have represented were suddenly overshadowed by a sense of a resurgent Old South and all the attendant pathologies of festering hate and fear.

What the GOP is experiencing now, one hopes, are the death throes of that 50-year spell that Johnson foretold. But before the party of the Great Emancipator can rise again, Republicans will have to face their inner Voinovich and drive a stake through the heart of old Dixie.

The problems were so severe that the federal government has frozen DOT’s transit grants, which average about $28 million a year, including some from the federal stimulus program. The report cast doubt on whether DOT could manage grants for the commuter rail line proposed to go south through Lovejoy.

Federal Court Turning off Water Tap for JawJaw–Sonny pisses away $8 million in legal fees comes up with zilch, prayes for rain and whatever he thingks he’s prayin’ too tells him to go Sonny himself.

Democratic Voters Flee the Obama-Pelosi Bandwagon

As President Obama’s approval rating continues to nosedive toward that of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, one has to wonder: Who are these naysayers abandoning the dynamic duo of government-run everything? While it’s true that a majority of the discontented comes from the ranks of Republican and Independent voters, it is also true that many Democratic voters are parting ways with the Obama-Pelosi agenda on several fronts.

Healthcare

According to a recent Zogby International/O’Leary Report poll (which surveyed 4,470 voters July 21-24 and has a margin-of-error of plus-or-minus 1.5 percentage points – internal data here), only 36 percent of Democratic voters support the Obama-Pelosi government administered health insurance plan that would put government in charge of determining what medical procedures Americans can have and when they can have them. Fifty-nine percent of Democratic voters prefer to either keep the current system in place, or want something different altogether.

When Obama and Pelosi ask their more moderate colleagues to come onboard with Obamacare, what they’re really asking them to do is ignore the will of their constituents, voters within their own Party, and the broader American electorate. That’s a tough sell.

First Amendment Rights

On September 9, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case that could turn a key provision of the “McCain-Feingold” campaign finance law on its head. At issue is a documentary about Hillary Clinton that was produced by the conservative group Citizens United and released in January 2008 when Clinton was running for president. Citing “McCain-Feingold” restrictions, a district court barred the group from advertising the documentary on television and distributing it through video-on-demand. Now the Supreme Court will decide if such a ban infringes on Americans’ First Amendment rights.

Both Obama and Pelosi support McCain-Feingold, however, the same can’t be said for a majority of voters in their Party. The same Zogby/O’Leary poll found that 54 percent of Democratic voters believe that the First Amendment protects the right of organizations to buy political advertising that either supports or opposes a candidate for political office. Only 27 percent of Democratic voters believe otherwise.

Second Amendment

Recently, an amendment that would have permitted law-abiding gun owners with concealed-carry permits to carry their firearms across state lines fell short in the Senate. Although the amendment received a majority of votes (58-39), a filibuster-proof 60 votes were required for passage. Thirty-seven of the “no” votes came from Democratic Senators.

The Zogby/O’Leary Report poll found that an overwhelming 79 percent of Democratic voters support laws that allow law-abiding Americans to carry guns. Yet over 60 percent of Democratic Senators voted to disallow Americans this right. A majority of Senate Democrats voted against the wishes of a majority of Democratic voters.

President Obama and Nancy Pelosi have never met a gun-ban they didn’t like – both of their records are abundantly clear on this. But is this a reflection of the Democratic electorate at large? Or is it just a reflection of their native enclaves – Southside Chicago (where Obama cut his political teeth) and San Francisco? Signs point to the latter.

Fifty-six percent of Democratic voters believe the Second Amendment “right to keep and bear arms’ is a right that should apply to every law-abiding citizen living in this country.” A slight majority of Democratic voters (52 percent) disagree with any law that would ban the possession of handguns, and the same percentage agree that “self-defense with a firearm is a fundamental right.” And finally, 73 percent of Democratic voters believe in the individual right to own and use firearms.

Conclusion

President Obama and Speaker Pelosi may find it convenient, not to mention politically expedient, to blame Republicans every time they fail to get one of their Big Government agenda items through the Democrat-led House and the Democrat-led Senate. However, the inconvenient truth is that majorities of Democratic voters are opposed to the Obama-Pelosi agenda on many issues. According to a recent Gallup poll, 40 percent of all Americans consider themselves “conservative,” and only 21 percent call themselves “liberal” (35 percent say “moderate”). The same poll found that 62 percent of self-identified Democrats consider themselves either conservative or moderate.

Try as they might, Obama and Pelosi should eventually find these numbers hard to ignore. In the meantime, they seem content to not only buck mainstream America, but also buck the mainstream within their own Party.

Dr. Smith (M.D. of course–veteran of years of day in and day out treating patients right?)

Besides pasting obssessively gobs of s_it I know I never read any more than I listen to Faux’s dumbasses or Rush, answer a simple question for me?

When you have a patient who has infiltrating ductal carcinoma and requires a mastectomy, or you have a patient who has AODM Type 1 or you have a patient who has Prostate Ca, and

a) Their insurance company cancels them when they make a claim because they’re sick
b) They lose their jobs and they can’t afford to buy insurance with the heavily increased rates

How do you get these patients treated? Do you boot them out of your office and tell ‘em to suck it up–mah boy George Bush says “go to da ER?”

What’s your track record for your patients’ survival when you do this?

Or you don’t treat patients do you? Is that it? And you pretend this doesn’t happen? Is that the deal?

No obsessive compuslive pasting needed here. All you need do is answer the direct questions. You don’t need to call any names. We know you were picked on for years and you wtill think you’re a kid. Just answer the direct questions.

What do you do with hundreds of paitents under these circumstances when they’re cancelled? How do you get them the $35,000 to $45,000 mastectomy–do you do it in your kitchen? How do youo manage the diabetes when these patients don’t have the money for the meds out of their pocket and can’t get insurance because it doubled when or get cancelled when 23.1% of your imaginary patients over 60 get diabetes?

Jist wondrin’ Dr. Smith with all your years of clinical medical experience.

Again no pasting. Just simple questions requiring simple answers.

These patients get cancelled when they get sick. These patients can’t get insurance if they lose their job–plans get far more expensive than with a group plan.

Did I say focus on the questions at hand with no pasting?

You can’t?You have the same disorder as Palin right? Can’t concentrate and read because you have a narcissistic Borderline Personality Disorder (Untreated)?

He will be soon joined by multimillionaire Blackwater CEO and owner, Eric Christian Crusader Prince.

\Bad timing for Prince and his 200+ Republitard collegues–Senate approves bill to jam cell phones in prisons. LOL the only cell phones in prisons with rare exceptions belong to the BOP/DOJ employees. That should be fun. No more Bootie Calls by the employees of the second largest agency in DOJ.

If Rep. Charlie Melancon, D-La., chooses to challenge Republican Sen. David Vitter, Democrats would also get a top-tier candidate in a race against Hooker financial supporter Vitter. the best news for Democrats is that they don’t even need to beat any Republican incumbents next year to have a great 2010, provided they are able to pick off a couple open GOP seats.

Laughable! The Dumocraps are saying that Americans who are enjoying their freedom to speak out against government take over of health care are haters and plants from the fringe right! Just like good little nazis, these modern left wing Dumocraps are. So Dumocraps, when’s the next book burning? Are there concentration camps next for Americans expressing their freedoms? Horrible. Just absolutely horrible. And you had better believe this arrogance of the modern left who are abusing their powers are going to get their just due as the Republicans did. As Smith posted, the plurality of this nation’s voters is not liberal and not conservative – it’s moderate. Moderates kicked Republicans to the curb, and now moderates may very well give them a second chance after this hallmark of corruption and out of touch reality of the will of the people. It’s going to be a long, hard fall, Dumocraps. You pinheads didn’t learn from the Republicans: power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

By the by, any blogger here who brags about being an MD and expresses such hate nonstop is either truthful and a psychotic fringe left wing nut sack, or a lying sh-t sack and probably at best a care giver wiping asses. If the former, someone needs to track this quack down and throw him or her in a white room. If the latter, what else is new.

Anytime you want to take me on on a medical or legal subject (you never do) you just hurl invective, I’m ready. I’ll wipe the floor with your Borderline butt.

The only reply you have is childish invective.

Pick any medical or legal topic. You’re an obsessive paster. You have no ideas. You know zero about medicine–could not get through a pre-med program/or a humanities major and get into med school. You would not last past the first round of testsin the first year of med school, and you’d wet your pants after one night on call or catching patients in an ER.

The MD statement came up because something about discussing health care and years of treating patients have a nexus. That is strange to a tard,obviously and you don’t understand that those of us who spend hours a week keeping up with the literature and going to meetings to keep up, and on line to keep up, want to use our skills on patients but can’t when the insurance companies cancel them when they get sick or lose their job. The vast majority of mid-income people who lost their jobs during the Bush administration can’t afford insurance on their own. It costs too many of thousands of bucks per month for their family or even for a couple with no kids.

Again none of the pubtards can answer my questions about what the patients do when they get the 3 diseases I named, and their insurnace is cancelled because they misbehaved by getting the disease. It happens every day, in every city and small town in this country and we have seen it for years.

Apparently pubtards think its great until whoops it happens to them.or their children. AFIK there is no special immunogenicity conferred on a pubtard’s family, a pubtard,. or their baby.

The next time y ou go someplace whether it’s a town hall or a 1 on 1 and you want help understanding anything, you aren’t going to get it by simply yelling incessantly so you drown out the speaker who is glad to take questions and if you’re 1 on 1 even with a “friend”, they’ll simply walk away from you if not walk away and knock you on your ass.

We all know the difference between expressing yourself, shutting up, and listening to the response and wrecking a meeting and no one is dumb enough to think they’re the same except you.

Again–if that’s your choice quit bitching that you lose all the time because you will.

We voted against the hatred and imbecility that Palin whipped up in her “us vs. them” and it f_cked your chances of being happy with who got elected, not to mention that he was part African American which pisses off the real Nazis–white trash who are ignorant bigots, mostly with bad educations.

Tell ya what “Smith.” Haul your fat butt on the bus, and yell incoherently at a Congressman’s town hall and when the cops come to remove you, and your in the back of the squad car, tell them you’re “expressing yourself. Then tell your lawyer and the judge/jury your choice who convicts you.

There will be a ton of witnesses as to your conduct you betcha. And the kicker is you can try what you term is free expression by yelling down Karen Handel or any other Republitard candidate at any one of their meetings coming up in the campaign season soon upon us–do it at a Republitard meeting–Bush had people arrested (they later had to back down) for wearing T-shirts they didn’t like in fact.

If you try to yell any Republitard candidate down the way these bussed in quintissentially ugly fat wads are doing–your fellow Republitards will have your butt in jail in a NY minutes.

You can ask a question like “whatcha mean women with breast cancer lose their insurance duh is breast cancer very serious–or men with prostate cancer that’s metastatic lose their insurance –are prostate mets to the spine, rest of the bone, lungs, duh very serious–or whadaya mean 23% of people over 60 get Diabetes Type II and 8 % of 20 year olds get it and they get dropped from insurance or its premium tripples for either them or their employer” and you’ll get an answer. I can answer it for ya.

But their is a difference in asking a question in an orderly fashion for information at a meeting and trying to blitz the meeting and block other people from getting answers to their questions.

To the extent that you and other idiots pretend not to know it, you’re getting killed at the polls and if you take my suggestion and behave that way at the next Republican question/answer session they’ll arrest you in a Brooklyn Bridge heart beat. I can’t picture Jim Wooten as one of those people, but it’d be fun to watch.
