Just out of curiosity, what ER did she go to that he got out in less than FOUR hours!

I know RHIP, but this is a joke.

Only the politically connected can get this type of priority treatment.


And, it will only get worse, when we get gooferment health care rammed down our throat or up our …

Who Wrote Dreams and Why It Matters
By Jack Cashill

*** begin quote ***

While waiting for America’s publishers to find their nerve, I had put my research into the authorship of Barack Obama’s 1995 memoir Dreams From My Father on the back shelf. But then I heard Chris Matthews.

The Hardball host was weighing in on the subject of Sarah Palin’s new book deal. “Sarah Palin – now don’t laugh – is writing a book,” sneered Matthews. “Not just reading a book, writing a book.”

“Actually in the word of the publisher she’s “collaborating” on a book,” Matthews continued. “What an embarrassment! It’s one of these ‘I told you,’ books that jocks do. You know she’s already declared, I mean, why they do it like this? ‘She can’t write, we got a collaborator for her.'”

What a joke!

Does anyone think that Kennedy, not Theodore C. Sorensen, wrote “Profiles in Courage”?

I had to read that book in high school. And, the good Brother, I forget his name, asked how many believed Kennedy wrote it. Don’t remember the discussion that ensued but I remember it was vigorous. A CINO slipping in below the radar as the “First Catholic President”. Maybe that’s when the brand began to slip! Parents were horrified from what I heard. After his assassination, all criticism was forbidden as he was placed in the secular equivalent of “sainthood”. But like Saint Augustine, the “saint” had clay feet.

So, Obama claims to have written it, but there is a substantive claim he didn’t.

Obama is a lot like Clinton. Very smooth. Too smooth.

The sheeple have been sold a socialist wolf in sheep’s clothing. And, he’s sheering them now.

Do they ever wake up?

RANT: Here comes the sales tax?


Another Compelling Reason for Secession
The Feds Plan To Stick Us With a National Sales Tax (in a Depression!)
by Lori Montgomery

*** begin quote ***

With budget deficits soaring and President Obama pushing a trillion-dollar-plus expansion of health coverage, some Washington policymakers are taking a fresh look at a money-making idea long considered politically taboo: a national sales tax.

*** end quote ***

Doesn’t anyone see this as the “fair tax”? It was exactly the argument that the opponents made when everyone assured us we couldn’t ossibly wind up with both a sales tax and an income tax.

Sorry to all the senior citizens who paid their taxes and saved, now when they spend those savings, guess what? They get to pay taxes again. Like the estate tax, it’s taxes on taxes.

Will this be the straw that breaks the taxpayer’s back?
