New Senate Health Care Bill is Gift to Unions

As if unions weren't being courted enough by the current President, the U.S. Senate has decided to
follow suite. The newly release Senate bill (S.xxx) has Max Baucus' (D-XX) handwriting all over it.
This bill was touted to be the product of the bi-partisan "gang-of-six", but it would appear that the
liberals in the gang owed too much to organized labor. There are specific clauses that create a
"personal care attendants workforce advisory panel" that appears setup to unionize anyone that wishes
to be reimbursed under the "community living assistance services and support" portion of the fee
schedule. In other words, it's a pay-to-play for state and contractor home-health care-givers. If they
want to get paid, they'd better play. There is $10 billion to bail-out union health care plans that have
already gone broke. The labor department currently has a funded training program for construction
workers that can only be used by union shops. A similar provision exists in the Senate bill for health
care workers. Moves such as this make it clear that congress is not serious about cost savings. Their
primary motive is power. The unions have, and will continue to give it to them - for a return in-kind.

Jimmy and Obama: Brothers from Other Mothers

From: Energy and National Goals - Crisis in Confidence, July 15, 1977 "Point three: To give us
energy security, I am asking for the most massive peacetime commitment of funds and resources in our
nation’s history to develop America’s own alternative sources of fuel -- from coal, from oil shale, from
plant products for gasohol, from unconventional gas, from the sun. I propose the creation of an energy
security corporation to lead this effort to replace two and a half million barrels of imported oil per day
by 1990. The corporation will issue up to five billion dollars in energy bonds, and I especially want
them to be in small denominations so average Americans can invest directly in America’s energy
security." Carter and Brezhnev met in Vienna to sign the SALT II treaty. Carter slavered over Leonid,
hugging and kissing him. As we now know, Brezhnev interpreted (correctly) this as a sign of Carter's
spineless and feckless nature, and knew he would not act decisively against ANYTHING the Soviets
dared. Public Works Employment and Economic Stimulus Appropriations Bills Remarks on Signing
H.R. 11 and H.R. 4876 Into Law. May 13, 1977 "One of the most important needs that we had when I
became President was to assure that we begin to reduce the unemployment rate, which at that time
was, I believe, 8.1 percent, and to start our national economy toward a normal growth in prosperity.
These two bills that have now been passed by Congress are a major move in the right direction." ..
House Resolution 11 is a public works bill. It provides $4 billion in immediate funding for State and
local governments to proceed with projects that will be very beneficial to the people of our country.
The Labor Department has estimated that 300,000 jobs will be provided with this money in the
construction industry alone, and at least another 300,000 in related industries concerned with
construction. .. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in his second address to the nation
since the turmoil over the June presidential election, set a tough tone for where the country is heading:
No compromises with opponents outside or inside Iran. A former congressional politician with
single-digit name recognition ran for President of the United States. The candidate had no foreign
policy experience, viewed Keynesian economic principals as gospel, ran on a campaign of "not from
the beltway", and believed that the U.S. did not need to keep nuclear arms. Unless you have been
asleep for the last 18 months, you know him as Barack Obama. If you were around in the late 70's,
you may also recognize Jimmy Carter. Both men are truly liberal democrats with similar foreign
policy views. Carter and Obama both need presidential advisers to manage foreign affairs due to their
lack of experience in foreign matters.

Republicans Are Not Conservative, Democrats Are Not Liberal

All too often we get caught up in the donkey and elephant fight. People from all parts of the political
spectrum often complain that the members of their parties are not representing them. Is this the age of
the independent movement? I do not vote straight ticket and have voted for an independent here-and-
there. If both sides of the fence truly believe that everyone in Washington is bowing to one special
interest or another (and they are), then let's vote them all out! A huge conservative march on 912
(estimates from 70,000 by liberal media and 2 million by conservative outlets), many democrats about
to lose key positions in the 2010 races, and a growing anger over lack of representation from both sides
may indicate that there are alternatives. Democrats are beholden to big labor (billions of dollars of tax-
payer money and working class dues go straight to their leadership <em>every year</em>) and
Republicans are slaves to big business and finance. So there is greed on both sides of the fence that we
all wish did not exist. Capitalism must continue to thrive or we will be living in squalor, but having so
much influence in Washington is dangerous. Big labor had its place and maybe there are still uses for
it, but the influence it has in D.C. is beyond ridiculous. These groups are inciting trade wars with
China, artificially inflating wages here, and preventing the evolution of the American economy. Of
course there is an alternative: The two parties get back to their roots. What would the world be like if
Republicans simply fought for every spending cut, resisted every program, killed every tax increase
and fought for the constitution the way it was written? What would the world be like if Democrats
fought for proper taxation for the common good, not programs for every good? What if everyone
understood the basic rights of states and individuals? What if we all just became responsible for
ourselves?

Some want health care reform because they became dependent on someone else to pay their doctor
bills. Some want unions to help them make more money than the market allows. Many seem to think
that the government should guarantee a happy ending. A happy ending for all, provided by taxpayer
money is impossible. The government does not actually produce anything or generate any wealth.
Any money that comes from it, comes from us.

In the past, environmentalists fought against coal-fired plants, pollution-dumping paper mills, carbon-
emitting cars. Now, they have a new enemy - windmills, solar farms, nuclear power. To be fair, not
all of them oppose all of these. The problem is that they all oppose some of it. In the absence of an
alternative, we have to burn coal.

With taxes going up sometime between now and 2011, this might be the year to recognize any long
term capital gains you have. Paying for the gain at 15% would be much more beneficial than the
20%+ that Obama is asking for. If you aren't ready to get out of a stock or mutual fund, simply buy
back in. Now, only the gains you see from here forward will be taxed at the higher rate.

What does it mean to be a conservative in America? The leftist groups in America would label a
conservative as a selfish, power-hungry, profit-monger that desires nothing more than their own
individual success. Conservatives have been consistently shamed into inaction with these messages.
Why have these negative labels been successful? Is it because conservatives are really just out for
money, power, and themselves? Many have met through the ages to help identify what conservatism is
and while these discussion have brought about debate on some finer points, a set of fundamentals
resulted from a conservative think tank. In 1964, Frank Meyer, called together a group that included a
broad base of political thinkers to help create the tenets of conservatism: <ul> <li>They accept "an
objective moral order" of "immutable standards by which human conduct should be judged."</li>
<li>Whether they emphasize human rights and freedoms or duties and responsibilities, they
unanimously value "the human person" as the center of political and social thought.</li> <li>They
oppose liberal attempts to use the State "to enforce ideological patterns on human beings."</li>
<li>They reject the centralized power and direction necessary to the "planning" of society.</li>
<li>They join in defense of the Constitution "as originally conceived."</li> <li>They are devoted to
Western civilization and acknowledge the need to defend it against the "messianic" intentions of
Communism.</li> </ul> These are the foundations of conservatism. America was founded on the
rights of the individual and limited government. Conservatives pride themselves on protecting those
concepts. Left-wing radicals use conservative-bashing labels as an attempt to vilify conservatives
instead of trying to attack their ideals. Attacking the true ideals would yield the liberal movement no
ground as those principals are a basis for most Americans . Saul Alinsky understood that attacking the
basic conservative tenets would offend some of the liberal base as-well. In order to achieve a sea-
change in the American order, liberals had to use radical tactics to consolidate power by ridicule - not
the reasoned debate liberals so often herald. Saul Alinsky said, "My aim here is to suggest how to
organize for power: how to get it and how to use it." This is not to be done with assistance to the
poor, nor even by organizing the poor to demand assistance.". Alinsky was an organizational genius.
By shaming the middle-class into believing that their successes were not due to their own hard work
but were instead due to being lucky, the whole idea of the classic American dream could be
questioned. These strategies have started to shift power from the American individual to the liberal-
ideal of a collective - and more succinctly, an elitist-controlled collectivist empire. The little bits of
power that had been spread among a great majority of Americans could then be high-jacked and given
to a chosen few leaders and advisers in the central government - the true elitists. Centralizing power
into the government violates a basic principal of conservatism and so the battle lines are drawn.
Liberals would argue that by allowing the government to provide for us, greater equality is achieved.
Understanding the elitist end of every collectivist effort so far (i.e. Russia, Cuba, N. Korea, Venezuela,
etc), an answer to the liberal argument might be that of Orwell, "All animals are created equal, some
more equal than others.". The elitist media and leadership are going to shove a load at you over the
next 6 months. Understand that every move is about making you more dependent upon them, more
understanding of them, and just more... them. Being a conservative is simply realizing that fact and
not going quietly into that good night.
What does it mean to be a conservative in America? The leftist groups in America would label a
conservative as a selfish, power-hungry, profit-monger that desires nothing more than their own
individual success. Conservatives have been consistently shamed into inaction with these messages.

Right or Entitlement

Recently, the left has sought to change the way we discuss entitlements. No longer should these
benefits provided to certain groups be discussed as entitlements, they are rights. But, what does the
change in semantics actually mean? From a constitutional perspective, a right is something that is
universally applicable to all Americans, does not require the actions of others to enact, and in
exercising a right, the rights of others cannot be infringed upon. These key characteristics of a right
should be used to measure what comes out of Congress as a right. <div class="separator" style="clear:
both; text-align: center;"><a style="clear: right; float: right; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 1em;"
href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_ZQ7b2mQ1s-

Q/SqMCEpbMf1I/AAAAAAAAAFs/fa9ZmDV6Q6o/s320/billofrights.jpg" border="0" alt=""
/></a></div> Let's apply this criteria to some important amendments in the <em>Bill of Rights.</em>
The first amendment, freedom of Speech and religion, has the characteristics of a right as it is written.
It simply prevents the passage of laws that would limit the exercise of religion, speech, assembly, and
redress of grievances. Nowhere in first amendment does it permit Congress to force free speech to be
"fair" by enacting legislation to balance what is published, spoken, or transmitted nor does it require
the actions of anyone to provide us with mechanisms through which we can exercise this right. It
would be unimaginable to believe that the government should pay for a stadium so that a group could
freely assemble, wouldn't it? The same principals could be applied to the second amendment, the right
to keep and bear arms. Again, "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, <em>shall not be
infringed</em>". As a right, Americans may purchase and posses guns. It does not entitle citizens to
a gun. In other words, the government is not responsible to give a gun to every American or supply
them with ammunition or accessories. This is a fundamental principal when discussing entitlements as
rights. Rights are something that cannot be infringed, but they are not something that is guaranteed to
be provided. Is retirement a right? Perhaps, but that doesn't mean that the government should supply
it. We have Social Security (until it goes broke in 2037) which is an entitlement. Retirement is
actually an extension of our right to life and perhaps pursuit of happiness. That means that we can
work to retire any way we choose. It does not mean that the government is required to plan our
retirement for us. In effect, Social Security is infringing on the rights of those that would prefer to
retire without government intervention. The social security taxation that is law may prevent such
persons from using the same money to alternatively fund their preferred retirement vehicle. Health
care as a right? Again, this is more of an extension of the right to life. The problem with saying that
universal health care is a right, is that it infringes upon the rights of those that would not choose to
have their health care provided for by the government. You cannot enact a right that infringes upon or
limits the rights of others. It also should not require action on the part of another. Universal health
care would require all Americans to enroll in the plan or pay penalties (2% of gross annual income).
This is where single-payer, universal coverage, and the public option lose ground. They are infringing
on the rights of over 240 million to provide an entitlement to less than 30 million (a majority of whom
may not want it or may not even be citizens). Liberals, by ideology, favor the empowerment of a
central government. Turning entitlements into rights does more than simply empowering the
government. It also creates a dependency where the entitled now require the actions of the provider of
the entitlement to enjoy the rights they already possessed. This releases the entitled citizen from
having to be responsible for their own rights, and gives that responsibility and therefor authority to
someone else - the government. To enjoy rights, Americans should learn that what they are and what
responsibilities come with them. We should understand our rights and take actions to insure our own
life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. If we were more responsible for our own rights, we would need
far less "help" from the government. Perhaps the inverse is also true - if the government were less
involved in the provision of our rights, individuals would have to be far more responsible to insure
them.
Recently, the left has sought to change the way we discuss entitlements. No longer should these
benefits provided to certain groups be discussed as entitlements, they are rights. But, what does the
change in semantics actually mean?

Health care reform is badly-needed, but I am certain that what is being proposed won't create a higher-
quality system, just a higher-cost one. The current administration is using poorly-vetted statistics to
convince the American population that the only way we can have health care is if the government
<em><span style="text-decoration: underline;">gives</span></em> it to us. So some things you may

government-run option <strong>Plain, Hard Truth: </strong>There are many alternative ideas in
Congress that will improve our health care situation. Some of these ideas have already been
implemented at the state level and are showing promise.<strong> </strong> Texas has implemented
tort reform and seen an increase in available providers (over 57% increase) and provider <span
style="text-decoration: underline;">competition.</span> With that change alone, hospitals are saving
millions of dollars on legal proceedings and using that money for increased services (better access) and
charitable services (free access to the under-insured). <a href="http://www.texaspolicy.com/pdf/2008-
05-RR04-tortreform-jnixon-posting.pdf">Results from Texas Tort Reform</a> (many will argue -
"But where are the savings?". Controlling costs are but one facet of true health care reform. We must
increase access to good health care as well as making it less expensive. <div>We are hearing that a <a
href="http://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article.cfm?articleid=2297">shortage of doctors</a> is
affecting accessibility. Texas has an increase of almost 15,000 physicians since the 2003 Tort Reform
(Proposition 12). Governor Rick Perry has indicated that tort reform has made previously-unavailable
services such as Obstetrics and Gynecology accessible to critically underserved communities in lower-
income and rural communities.</div> <div>One could add in portability by removing the federally-
mandated state borders for insurers and doctors as well as making it just as lucrative for people to get
health insurance directly instead of through their employers (individual plans exist today, but tax-
incentives are only if the health plan is acquired through an employer), and finally... there must be a
co-pay... free gets too expensive too quickly (economics 101). <strong>Administration
Statement:</strong> We have to do everything and we have to do it all now. <strong>Plain, Hard
Truth: </strong>Senator Lieberman even suggests that perhaps we don't have to do it all now to see
benefits and he certainly says this is not the right time (<a
href="http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/08/23/lieberman-suggests-putting-parts-health-care-

reform. It should be done incrementally so we can learn what works and modify what does not. Doing
everything all at once will irreversibly destroy the health care system we have and put a far more
dangerous one in its place. <strong>See Also: <a title="Baucus' Health Care Bill"

    Health care reform is badly-needed, but I am certain that what is being proposed won't create a
    higher-quality system, just a higher-cost one. The current administration is using poorly-vetted
    statistics to convince the American population that the only way we can have health care is if the
    government gives it to us. So some things you may have heard:

The Emporer Has No Cabinet

Almost eight months into the Obama Presidency (Ten months since his election), and a substantial
portion of his cabinet is empty. Almost half of the the President's appointed positions are vacant. The
majority of reports indicate two major issues are preventing Obama from organizing the government.
The first centers around the number of candidates that simply did not want to be in his cabinet (<a
href="http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/18/health/policy/18health.html">see NYT article</a>). The
second contributing factor is thought to be a tougher confirmation process than in the past. How is that
possible? Hasn' the Senate been populated with a filibuster-proof Democratic majority? That would
seem to say that even Democrats find issue with the people Obama feels should be running various
agencies in this country. So what positions still don't have an Obama appointee? <ul> <li>Secretary
of the Army</li> <li>Director of the Agency for International Development</li> <li>Assistant
Treasury Secretary</li> <li>Inspector General</li> <li>Assistant Secretary of State (Nuclear
nonproliferation)</li> <li>Transportation Security Agency</li> <li>Customs and Border
Protection</li> <li>Drug Enforcement Agency</li> <li>Bureau of Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives</li> <li>Intelligence Chief for the Department of Homeland Security</li> </ul> I believe
there is more than meets the eye here. Certainly several candidates have chosen not to be in Obama's
administration. I agree that doing anything in Congress is complex and cumbersome, including the
confirmation process. Seriously though, every previous administration had those exact things to deal
with. The real difference: Czars. The President has chosen to ignore the Constitution, skirt
Congressional oversight, and create a cabinet of non-confirmed power-mongers. This is a serious
affront to the checks and balances set forth in the framework that is our Constitution. Has the
President spent too much effort to find leftist Czars instead of working to place respectable and
effective leaders at the top of incredibly important segments of of our Federal Government?

jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small
doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism." I remember
hearing this for the first time in high school and thinking, "silly Russians, tricks are for libs". That was
a time when Communism was evil, socialism was wrong, and the can-do spirit of the working class
American was at a pinnacle. What has changed you ask? First, we visit California (surprise, I know).
Representative Diane Watson of California was speaking at a town hall on August 27th, 2009. Besides
the many racist remarks that she littered her speech with, she decided to lift Communist leaders to a
level of hero-worship I would not have thought possible. <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-

allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object> <strong>Highlights:</strong> <strong>
</strong>"<em>And I want you to know now... you can think whatever you want to about Fidel
Castro, but he was one of the brightest leaders I have ever met. *APPLAUSE*".</em><em> </em> If
the fact Rep. Watson thinks Castro is one of the brightest leaders didn't get your attention, how about a
crowd applauding the statement? Castro and his brother have sucked billions of dollars out of that
economy, ruined a once garden spot, and created a disparity between the wealthy (elitist government)
and the poor that only Rep. Watson could admire. In the same discussion, she applauds Che Guevara
(<a href="http://factreal.wordpress.com/2008/12/17/che-chic-killer/">interesting link on Che</a>) for
kicking the wealthy out. Of course, she means except for the soon-to-be, rich-beyond-belief,
government elitists. Some might say, wow, a U.S. Congresswoman supports radical communists!
That's a serious issue alone, and I would respond, but wait... she's not the first, and it's not over. To
continue our look into Socialism in 21st century America, we look into the current White House
administration (I can't believe I just wrote that). Several key figures are of great concern. Carol
Browner, Energy Czar, John Holdren, Chief Science Advisor, Barack Obama, President. We start with
Czarina Browner. A Czar is an appointee of the President that has no Congressional oversight nor is
the role provided for in our three branch system - but the Constitution really does get in the way
sometimes... Mrs. Browner is/was a member of the Socialist International's "Commission for a
sustainable world society". Why the confusing is/was? Well, according to a <a
href="http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/jan/12/obama-climate-czar-has-socialist-
ties/">Washington Times article</a>, on June 30th, 2009 she spoke at a Socialist International event in
Greece. The strange thing is that her profile was prominently displayed on the Socialist web page, up
until Mrs. Browner became Obama's pick for Climate Czar. That organization believes that countries
with large economies should shrink them to address climate change. Secondly, we address John
Holdren. Mr. Holdren co-authored a book in the late 70's entitled "Ecoscience: Population, Resources,
Environment. In this publication, he and his co-authors proposed "coercive fertility control". Forced
abortions, non-elective tubal ligations for women, and anti-fertility drugs in the drinking supply. Next
is President Obama himself. When TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) was first outlined in 2008,
it did not contain any intent or power to have any stock to be transferred to the government. Thereby,
the private entities could not be made public or the property of the U.S. Government. The Democrats
took action. The first step was to make sure that the government was given stock for the money that
was lent. Republicans fought hard to make sure it was only preferred, or non-voting, stock. Obama
took the next step by making sure that TARP included a conversion of the preferred to common stock.
This gave the government voting rights into the banking system which would put <em>over 500
financial institutions under government control</em>. Control of finance, control of some of the
largest manufacturers in the country (GM and Chrysler), control of insurance. Recent events of
historical proportion also expose our current leadership's Socialistic tendencies. Many "crises" have
come lately that have allowed the administration to take drastic actions (i.e. the conversion of preferred
to common stock within TARP, government ownership of GM, etc). A Socialist strategy shows us that
these actions were not necessarily responses to crises, as much as a plan to use existing and perhaps
manufactured crises to change America forever. In 1966, <span style="text-decoration:
underline;">The Nation</span> magazine published an article by Richard Cloward and Frances Piven,
both radical socialists and professors at Columbia University. The article discussed a strategy for the
ultimate demise of Capitalism thereby allowing Socialism to replace it as the basic theory of economic
organization for the United States. The strategy was published as the "Cloward-Piven Strategy" and
sought to "...hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of
impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.". Those impossible
demands: Social Security, Medicare, <em><strong>Health Care/Insurance Reform</strong>,
<strong>ARRA</strong></em>, the list goes on. James Simpson does an in-depth look at the strategy
in his article, <a
href="http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/09/barack_obama_and_the_strategy.html">"Barack
Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis"</a>. James Bopp, a constitutional law lawyer wrote,
""The threat to our country from the Obama administration cannot be underestimated ... They are
proceeding pell-mell to nationalize major industries, to exponentially increase the size, power and
intrusiveness of the federal government, to undermine free enterprise and free markets, to raise taxes to
a confiscatory level ... the goal of the Obama administration has become clear and obvious - to
restructure American society along socialist ideals". There is no doubt that we have crisis influencing
Socialism, some coincidence. Like the sudden Health Care Crisis, right after our Economic Crisis (<a
href="http://blog.heritage.org/2009/07/08/smoking-gun-of-the-housing-crisis/">caused by the
Democratically-controlled Congress' "unsustainable drive to increase homeownership</a>), and
perhaps shortly before our debt and inflation crisis. We have a President using <a
href="http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/09/barack_obama_and_the_strategy.html">Socialist
Strategies (Cloward-Piven</a>), an administration filled-with and associated-to hard-core radical
Socialists, portions of Congress praising radical Socialists/Communists, and a <a
href="http://plainhardtruth.blogspot.com/2009/08/ignoring-constitution-perception-and.html">
President professing the Constitution as a flawed document</a>. It would appear that we are at a
critical juncture. We must organize, inform, influence and vote - or we may awaken to find that we
have communism. This certainly comes across as a statement of fear, because it is - not to instill fear
of some policy, legislation, or specific political figure, not fear for fear's sake. It is a call to action.
Let's wake up <em>before</em> we find that we have communism. The alarm is going off. Do
<strong>NOT </strong>hit the snooze button just one more time.

am committed to analyzing current events, the main-stream media, and historical events when
applicable to present stories that not only convey the facts, but some insight as to how events might
actually affect you, the readers. As with all sources of information, I hope you consult multiple

<a href="http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/20090821_freedom_from_fear_--
_and_the_second_ammendment/">an article</a> suggesting that freedom of speech (the first
amendment) is under direct attack by the second amendment (the right to bear arms). It's an eloquent
piece that contains sparse facts and even more-sparse logic. He references Congressional forum where
someone showed up with a gun and an Obama Health Care event where protesters used their weapons
in a youTube video threat. The events he's listed are in direct contradiction to the premise of the
article. David is attempting to show that one right should not quash another and I agree with that
premise. He destroys that strong argument by instead talking about how his right should quash that of
gun owners. This is a terrible attempt to present a new approach to Supreme Court evaluations of the
second amendment. Sirota's position that protecting the 2nd Amendment will destroy the 1st is
preposterous. The first amendment to the Constitution is no more in danger than the tenth due to our
right to bear arms. Having the right to keep and bear arms no more allows a person to bring a gun to a
public event than it would a chainsaw or billy club. Those of us that exercise our right to keep and
bear arms are not doing it to endanger other citizen's right to speak freely. We are either sportsman,
prefer to be prepared to defend our homes, or wish to protect our own rights as American citizens. If
people threaten others with guns, baseball bats, a knife or any other weapon when no threat is present
to themselves, they should be arrested and tried. The same should happen to anyone that uses speech
to cause harm to another such as the famous "yelling fire in a crowded theater" example. Having a
right does not give us the right to restrict the rights of others with it. Once one person's rights hinder
the freedoms of another, the judicial system should be brought in to help draw the line. This has
nothing to do with free speech and everything to do with another tactic to strip individual freedoms
from others. No one is preventing liberals from speaking their minds and the only ones fearing the loss
of rights are the one's now being criticized for having exercised one of theirs.
This is a terrible attempt to present a new approach to Supreme Court evaluations of the second
amendment. Sirota's position that protecting the 2nd Amendment will destroy the 1st is preposterous.

alt="" /></a></div> Barack Obama's 2008 Presidential campaign held the promise of making us safer
by being friendlier. The President's foreign policy, the "Obama Doctrine", is naive, dangerous and
non-productive. In a campaign speech in January of 2008, Obama stated, "It's time to reject the
counsel that says the American people would rather have someone who is strong and wrong than
someone who is weak and right". The White House's discombobulation of our intelligence
capabilities, contempt for the military, apologist attitude and distancing from allies have put the world
in a tailspin only a radical could appreciate. Due to the softening stance of the United States on Iran
and Palestine, Israeli citizens feel more-threatened. A recent Smith Research poll done on behalf of <a
href="http://www.jpost.com/"><em>The Jerusalem Post</em></a> shows that less than 5% of Israelis
feel that President Obama is supporting them. The Palestinian-friendly stance taken by the current
administration is not only a cause for concern in Israel, it may actually incite the violence President
Obama believes it would prevent. The Israeli government may now have no choice but to accomplish
by force what the weakened U.S. negotiating position can no longer achieve - the dismantling of the
Iranian nuclear arms program. Perhaps we never intended to achieve that anyway as may be evidenced
by Obama's unwillingness to even <a href="http://plainhardtruth.blogspot.com/2009/08/emperor-has-
no-cabinet.html">staff the chief nuclear nonproliferation position in his cabinet.</a> In a total
reversal, the current Administration is now not only going after the intelligence agencies in America,
they are systematically dismantling the ones they do not like. With the formation of the new HIG
(High-value detainee Interrogation Group) the President has removed the separation of concerns that is
implied in the responsibilities of the FBI, NSA, and CIA. The <a
href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIA">CIA</a> is intended to gather foreign intelligence of all
types, perform covert actions, and exert foreign political influence. The <a
href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Security_Agency">NSA</a> was specifically founded to
provide foreign signals intelligence (not human intelligence) and protection of U.S. communications.
The <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FBI">FBI</a> is a domestic law enforcement agency. The
FBI and NSA are the only two groups allowed into this new HIG. The NSA will run it, it will be
housed within the FBI (whatever that means), and all oversight is provided by the Oval Office.
Foreign intelligence gathering fell under the oversight of Congress until last week. Now the
consolidation of power that this represents is unprecedented. The Executive branch of the United
States government can now interrogate high-value detainees (no limit to whether those are foreign or
domestic) and the only oversight is the office that created the beast. Feel safer yet? From a foreign-
threat perspective, the administration's recent change-of-heart around the investigation and
incrimination of interrogators of foreign detainees is alarming. CIA operatives will not have the
conviction necessary to gain the information needed to protect Americans. Government agents will be
too concerned that any action (although legal at that time) may be made retroactively illegal by a future
administration. This may very well paralyze their ability to protect us. Even more recently, Hugo
Chavez, an Obama administration hero, is using his new political capital to start an arms race in South
America. The Russians seem all-to-eager to jump back to their pre-Reagan posture of arming anyone
that dislikes the U.S.A. and they seem to feel that they have the right American leader in-place to make
it work. President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton both have shown that at this time, it is more
important to support the Chinese government than it is to promote the human rights of Tibet, Taiwan
or the Chinese people. <img src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_ZQ7b2mQ1s-

align="right" />Secretary Clinton told South Korean reporters that we should continue to press China
on human rights but, "..our pressing on those issues can't interfere with the global economic crisis, the
global climate change crisis, and the security crisis.". This is a fundamental misunderstanding of
economy and security. Taiwan, Tibet and Chinese human rights activists can no longer look to the
U.S. for support. Decades of democratic progress in Communist China has been erased. President
Carter tried Obama's kind of foreign policy. Our leaders learned from his mistakes and have since
promoted Democracy abroad, sometimes by doing more than just talking. This policy is based on the
idea that by strengthening freedom and the rights of all people, we strengthen America in the world.

President Obama is reversing 30 years of progress (the fall of the Berlin Wall, unification of Germany,
a drastically-improved human rights situation in Serbia, Democracies in the middle east, etc) in-trade
for the possibility of a new Cold War with Russia, dictators as friends, Socialists as role-models, and
terrorist nations as allies. If you liked the Carter era, it would seem we are due for a repeat - inflation,
oil supply issues and conflict included.
Barack Obama's 2008 Presidential campaign held the promise of making us safer by being friendlier.
The President's foreign policy, the "Obama Doctrine", is naive, dangerous and non-productive.

In a recent<a href="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/"> Telegraph</a> article, it is suggested that President
Obama is making some historic mistakes in the handling of the American economy. The author goes
so far as to say that these mistakes are the same as those made by leaders just before and during one of
the darkest financial times in U.S. history - the Great Depression. The basis for this concern is that
Obama's belief that Keynesian economic policies will return the U.S. economy to growth by printing
money and stuffing it back into the economy. Short-term this will create false and unsustainable
spikes of growth. If the economy doesn't grow organically, it will have no support. This creates a
spiral of out-of-control spending to prop-up the false economy with more printing and spending. It is
precisely these policies that made the depression longer and deeper in the United States than in other
countries where they took more of a laissez-faire approach - most of which had come out of the
depression by 1931. <!-- more --> As a side-effect, the dollar will drastically weaken as an
oversupply of money is created. This will inflate the cost of goods as it will take many more dollars to
purchase commodities. High inflation will suppress demand and increase the velocity of the economic
death-spiral. Of course, Keynesians would print and spend more to combat the ever-decreasing G.D.P.
which keeps this whole circle of ineptitude going. (print more money-&gt;spend it-&gt;weakened
dollar-&gt;inflation-&gt;decreased demand-&gt;increased unemployment-&gt;rinse and repeat).
Many economists also point at Hoover's mercantilist trade policies as a factor in worsening the
depression in America. The Smoot-Hawley tariff act was a protectionist law that raised tariffs on
20,000 imported goods. In a move showing a naivety of economic history, President Obama is
suggesting a 55% tariff on Chinese goods. When taken with Obama's anti-free trade rhetoric, striking
similarities to President Hoover's errant thinking become evident. Let's not forget the draconian tax
increases that come with the Keynesian belief that the government must stabilize demand during times
of economic trouble. By the end of 1931 President Hoover recommended a gigantic income tax
increase in an effort to save the country from skyrocketing deficits. Marginal rates rose by as much as
38% to a high of 63% on taxable income and the effect on household spending was dramatic. Barack
Obama is already floating trial balloons on the subject of middle-class tax increases to pay for all the
entitlements and other government spending he is promoting. Some argue that we are not heading into
repeat of 1929-1937. In Steven Levitt's article, <em>This is Not Another Great Depression,</em>
Levitt makes the case that we are not on the road to a depression because G.D.P. has not changed when
evaluated between Q4 2007 and Q4 2008. But what about the 4 successive declines<sup>1</sup>
from Q3 2008 through the second quarter of 2009 - a total drop of almost 3% and a trend that has not
yet reversed. Unemployment statistics are also in stark disagreement with Levitt's assertion. Since the
start of the recession near the end of 2007, unemployment has gone from 4.9% to its present 9.7%.
During the height of the depression era, unemployment swelled to over 20%, but if we look at 1930
when the depression was beginning to take hold, the unemployment rate was only 8.9% - nearly a
point lower than today. Today's employment numbers are also less accurate than those kept during the
depression. Currently, if a worker becomes discouraged and just quits looking, he falls out of the
statistics. That person is no longer unemployed. Some estimations<sup>2</sup> put the disparity due
to this difference in accounting at somewhere between 5% and 10%. That would put our current
unemployment rate, adjusted for the rules used in the depression, at between 14.8% and 19.8% - much
worse than during the start of the depression and approaching dangerously close to the worst numbers
achieved in the 1930's. Just prior to the Great Depression, Russian economist Nikolai Kondratiev
made the case that economies had super-cycles of roughly forty-to-sixty years. With the darkest days
of the 1930's roughly seventy years behind us, Nikolai would say we are due. Looking at history, the
assertion could be made that our leaders should consider doing less, spending less, and printing far less
money if they truly wish to avoid an economic disaster. The interventionist attitude of the current
administration is already showing itself to be repeating history. Canada is already adding
jobs<sup>3</sup> to their economy while losses mount-up in the United States. Canada and other
countries that are taking far more hands-off approaches, are already coming out of their recessions
while we appear to be going deeper into the abyss. Footnotes: <sup>1</sup> - www.bea.gov -

rate during the Great Depression" <sup>3</sup> - www.BloggingStocks.com - "Canada posts first job
gain in four months"

/></a></div> Critical legislation is being drafted, reviewed, written about, praised, slammed,
publicized and soon... voted upon. Some of this legislation, Health Care Reform and Cap and Trade,
has brought a groundswell of criticism from conservative Americans - soon after, criticisms of the
criticism by liberals. Why have conservatives suddenly become so aware, so vocal, so active? Many
conservatives simply understand that these bills represent the largest threat to the United States
Constitution in history. Not only do conservatives recognize that the systematic shredding of our
nation's framework is happening, they recognize their patriotic duty to prevent it. First, certain
amendments to the constitution make specific who or what should have certain powers when congress
does not. The constitution purposefully limits the role of the federal government by saying in the tenth
amendment : <em>"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited
by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."</em> <em> </em><em>
</em> <!-- more --><em></em> This amendment limits the federal government to <em>only</em>
those powers specifically enumerated in the Constitution. So how does the federal government have
the power to run an automobile manufacturer, health care insurance exchange, carbon credit exchange,
or the method by which companies unionize? They don't. If we examine the enumerated powers of
Congress in article I, section 8 of the Constitution. Two paragraphs are most-often used to mistakenly
justify congressional activities that should instead be allocated to individuals or the states.
<blockquote><em>The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and
Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United
States</em></blockquote> The most controversial part of this clause is <em>not</em> "general
welfare" as many liberal policy-makers and supporters would have us believe. Debating the definition
of general welfare is unnecessary as this clause does not give Congress the power to provide for the
general welfare, it qualifies the power to tax for such a purpose. There is a key distinction that
Thomas Jefferson made when he wrote, "They [Congress] are not to                  lay taxes ad libitum for
any purpose they please; but only            to pay the debts or provide for the welfare of the Union.
In like manner, <strong>they are not to do anything they please to              provide for the general
welfare</strong>, but only to lay taxes for           that purpose". So what is a constitutional method
for laying taxes to provide for the general welfare? Medicaid was enacted by having the federal
government levy taxes without providing the actual service. The <em>States</em> provide the
service in a manner consistent with their ideologies and are supported by the taxing power of the
Congress. That is the only manner in which Congress has any authority over the welfare of citizens -
to levy taxes. Finally conservative leaders are starting to assert the principals present in our
constitution in order to preserve our most precious union. In Georgia, conservative members of the
state legislature are seeking to challenge the health care reform legislation. By asserting the tenth
amendment, the state is making the case that since neither medical procedures, insurance nor
pharmaceuticals are enumerated powers of the federal government, they must be left to the states or
individuals and that the federal government can pass no laws that infringe upon those rights. Several
other states <a href="http://www.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2009/02/23/state-sovereignty-
resolutions/">are considering or have passed "Sovereignty Resolutions"</a> to strengthen their rights
under the tenth amendment. The arguments against conservatives are that they have not provided
feedback into the legislation and are only saying "no". Of course they are just saying no, there is no
way to constitutionally enact "the public option" in the health care bill nor the creation of a federal
exchange for the sale and purchase of carbon credits that the cap and trade bill represents. Any
legislation that attempts to add to the powers of the federal government is an infringement on the rights
of every American as afforded to us by the constitution. Protecting state and individual rights is a
much more important responsibility than enacting any federal entitlement. We pray our conservative
leaders have found this age-old responsibility to be of the highest priority. The alternative is that the
country we were given could be lost - or more concisely - taken from us. <span style="font-size: x-

alt="" width="288" height="216" /></a></div> Vice-President Joe Biden was sent in front of
Television cameras to tell us how the ARRA (stimulus bill) has saved the country from catastrophe on
September 3rd. The stimulus is a total of $792 billion that was intended to invigorate the American
economy in an effort to avoid an unemployment rate over 9% - at least that's what they told us so long
ago that we've forgotten. Today.. we're approaching 10%, but Mr. Biden has informed us that all is
better, the economy is not in trouble, and the stimulus is, "in fact working". The liberal administration
told us on Thursday that, "Instead of talking about the beginning of a depression, we are talking about
the end of a recession.". If you've lost your job in the last few weeks...can you possibly agree? So
how about that plain, hard truth? It's needed here. This is nothing more than propaganda and taking
credit for the boom-bust cycle that this new administration has continually admonished. Joe Biden and
Obama want us to attach ourselves to the message that our economy could not have possibly come out
of a recession without them. The problem is... they really haven't done anything. It's been all of us,
working hard, buying what we need, and taking care of our families. Oddly enough, that is what has
brought us out recession time-after-time. Now, how can we say such things? Certainly Obama and
Biden have done this all without us.... Do you really want to know?.. here it is: First, based on
government accounting, <a href="http://projects.propublica.org/tables/stimulus-spending-
progress">less than 15% of the stimulus money has been spent</a>! Wait, the stimulus has saved us
all and we coud have done it for 85% less money? No, of course not! The government needed it all,
wait no, YOU needed it all... no, that's not right... the<em> government</em> needed it all for
<em>you</em>.... yeah... that's it. How could the government have spent less than 15% of the
stimulus money in almost a year, claim that it has repaired all our ills, and have most of us believe it?
Because we believe whatever they tell us... damn the statistics. Looking closer at the numbers we see
that out of the money that has been spent, it's mostly on government programs that have no effect on
the economic recovery. Out of the minuscule amount that has been spent, most of it is on propping up
Social Security, Health and Human Services and the Veteran's Administration. While all of these
might be places that we should spend money, it has little to do with why the economy is doing what it
has always done - recover, on its own. There is also growing concern on whether or not the money is
even being spent properly. In an MSNBC article Brett Blackledge reports that "Inspector General
Calvin Scovel said last month he will examine the Federal Aviation Administration's process for
selecting programs for the $1.1 billion in grant money. His announcement came after his office
discovered that the Obama administration used stimulus money to pay for 50 airport projects that didn't
meet the grant criteria and approved projects at four airports with a history of mismanaging federal
grants.". The whole program is a poster for government waste, fraud and abuse. No competitive
bidding means we don't get the most project for the dollars spent. Poor project selection has led to the
repair of roads and bridges that did not need it while others continue to decay. The economy will
recover and it likely has already started. There is little debate about that as the economy has
<em>always</em> recovered and always will as long as free enterprise is allowed to thrive.
<em>That</em> is the point. America has the most-resilient economy in the world precisely because
we have historically fought government intervention in the economy. Out of the big three automakers,
who's fairing the best? Ford, the one company that did not get <em>helped</em> by the current
administration. Now, <a
href="http://us.lrd.yahoo.com/_ylt=AjqJLw_8_d7_NbBtA3xvtZRG2vAI;_ylu=X3oDMTFkdWF1YW

Take what the government tells you with a grain of salt, especially when they are taking credit for
much of anything.
The stimulus is a total of $792 billion that was intended to invigorate the American economy in an
effort to avoid an unemployment rate over 9% - at least that's what they told us so long ago that we've

/></a></div> With health care reform, racist czars, and the war in Afghanistan taking front-stage
lately, the Waxman-Markey bill (H.R. 2454) which contains cap and trade has gotten little attention.
While the bill has several promising proposals for modernizing our power infrastructure and moving us
towards more sources of renewable energy, there are considerable issues with the market-based
pollution controls in the bill. This bill has the potential to create a crisis without having the potential to
solve the unproven issue that it seeks to remedy. The battle between global warming "believers" and
"deniers" is becoming more-and-more a battle between U.N. scientists and the rest of the scientific
community. According to a 2009 Wall Street Journal article there are more than 700 non-U.N.
scientists who are challenging the U.N.'s opinions on global warming. The original count of scientists
that authored the U.N. climate summary was only fifty-two. Without a true crisis to force the
enactment of this bill, the administration has to show that there are real benefits to turning it into law.
The costs are evident, the benefits are tougher to come by. The proposed benefit of a cap and trade
system is that it will limit the amount of C02 put into the air by making it progressively expensive to
do so. While the bills supporters say that the bill won't put any stress on the economy, one would
argue that in order for it to work, it would have to put an undue strain on CO2 emitters or they would
not cut emissions. <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="clear: right;

alt="" /></a></div> In reality, emitters would have to pass the strain onto consumers after simply
purchasing or acquiring more credits. Conservative members of Congress attempted to protect citizens
from out-of-control energy costs by adding in triggers that would suspend the program if energy costs
exploded, but all of these measures were defeated by liberals. If the bill isn't going to cause an
explosion in energy costs, why defeat these safety measures? They had to get those safeties out of the
bill because they know that energy prices are going to increase by $1900/year per family in the next
ten years and almost $7,000 per family per year in the next quarter-century (Heritage Foundation
study). If we look at countries that have implemented cap and trade systems, more reasons to be
concerned about this legislation arise. Britain has had this type of system in place for just a few years
and the British Taxpayer Alliance estimates that each family has seen their energy expenses rise by
about $1300/year. What's worse yet is that Britain's carbon emissions have actually increased. <div
class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="clear: left; float: left; margin-
bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_ZQ7b2mQ1s-

h2zM/s200/EU+flag.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></a></div> This kind of pollution control is actually a
ruse. It turns out that the looking at the EU, who has implemented such a system, we learn that it's
more about control of industry than control of CO2. The New York Times published an article that
said that said that the cap-and-trade system was like, “a grandfather with a large family deciding what
to give his favorite grandchildren for Christmas,...”. The permits for CO2 end-up being handed out as
favors from those governments to the companies that have garnered the most favor with the ruling
party. Power. That is primarily what Barack Obama and the liberals are after. They've already taken
over an insurance giant, one of the largest manufacturers in the United States, and now they need the
rest of the free market to be less-free. If a company gets out-of-line with the liberal's wishes, they can
force them to buy carbon credits on the open market. If a company is doing as they are instructed, they
might earn free credits from the government. Although the current bill seems to focus on electricity
producers, once successfully implemented as a mechanism to influence companies, their will be no end
to who will be directly affected by this legislation. This form of pollution control has implications that
are much more dire than centrist control of the economy or electric bills going through the roof. It
might utterly destroy American company's ability to compete in the global marketplace. China and
India have no reason to enact such reforms (China already has central control of industry). That means
our products will have higher costs (and therefor prices) without a matching increase in the demand for
those products. If we think 10% unemployment stinks, imagine what that number will look like when
Ford, Toyota, General Mills, etc all have to move to India to compete. It is also perceivable that this
will create a new commodities market that large investment firms may jump into. The Goldman-
Sachs's of the country will eagerly create complex carbon credit products to market to investors and
give control of energy prices to a few giants of finance. We've looked at will most-likely happen. We
could also look at governments that have been considering cap and trade systems recently. In 2008,
New Zealand <em>suspended</em> it's weeks-old cap-and-trade system due to concerns of
uncontrollable energy costs and no proven benefits from the countries that had already taken this
delusional path. For now, it appears that cap and trade is idling in the Senate ever since it marginally
passed the house (219 votes for to 212 against). The Democrats have started to criticize the bill as the
renewable energy sections of the bill have become more watered down after going for mark-up in the
Senate. Conservatives are concerned that it is all cost with no benefit. Only time will tell if this will
ever see the light of day.
With health care reform, racist czars, and the war in Afghanistan taking front-stage lately, the
Waxman-Markey bill (H.R. 2454) which contains cap and trade has gotten little attention.&nbsp;
While the bill has several promising proposals for modernizing our power infrastructure and moving us
towards more sources of renewable energy, there are considerable issues with the market-based
pollution controls in the bill.&nbsp; This bill has the potential to create a crisis without having the
potential to solve the unproven issue that it seeks to remedy.

Massive Government Takeover on Horizon

With the 61% majority stake in GM and $85 Billion takeover of AIG complete, the liberal government
has set its sights on the private student loan market and health care. Both initiatives will cost roughly
one trillion dollars each and neither one will be passed by the Senate in a traditional vote where 60
senators consent. Health Care and student loans are on track to be voted on in a fall budgetary
maneuver known as reconciliation. This tactic only requires a simple majority and was intended to
promote better fiscal discipline in the budget process. It is clearly having the reverse affect. <!-- more
--> The $85 Billion-a-year student loan program had been a totally government-serviced operation
until consumer outrage at the poor support and absolute lack of efficiency pushed them to the private
market. So if the government did such a poor job, why is this even in consideration? In 2007, a liberal
congress legislated loan returns to a level so low that private companies could not make any money.
They just stopped writing the loans which forced consumers back into the hands of the government.
The government didn't pause at all. The federal programs started buying up loan assets at an alarming
rate in 2008. In the President's budget for 2010<sup>1</sup> a section named "TERMINATION:
ENTITLEMENTS FOR FINANCIAL INTERMEDIARIES UNDER THE FEDERAL FAMILY
EDUCATION LOAN PROGRAM, the first sentence says it all, "The Administration proposes to
eliminate unnecessary subsidies to lenders that make loans to students.". Obama is ending the
privatized student loan industry by force. By terminating the subsidies, that were only necessary due
to the government lowering rates to unsustainable levels, there will be nowhere else to go but the
government when Americans need student loans. This strategy isn't new, it's the exact same one being
used to sucker-punch citizens into a single-payer health care solution. You could call it - single lender
student loans. Following their game plan to the letter, the administration is using its usual tricks of
claiming "savings" and then putting plans in-place to spend the savings before they've materialized - as
if we would be able to accurately measure these savings anyway. Obama has planned to use the
purported savings to increase Pell grant funding by almost $50 Billion. If loan defaults increase, and
they will, taxpayers will be funding the increases in Pell grants. Recognize the basic strategy that
elitists are using to gather more-and-more power to themselves and therefor strip more from states and
individuals. They predictably regulate an industry into the ground, start a government plan, create
false "savings", then run the private industry out-of-business by using anti-competitive practices. It's
not new, it's not right, but it is their method of operation. Health Care and student loans will mean a
two trillion dollar take over of yet another private enterprise without the constitutionally mandated 60
votes, not to mention that a federal-run student loan program <a
href="http://plainhardtruth.blogspot.com/2009/09/if-you-like-your-country-you-can-keep.html">may
be unconstitutional</a>. For education and health care, we will have nowhere to go but Uncle Sam.

/></a></div> Van Jones, Obama's green jobs czar has resigned due to the "vicious smear campaign"
waged against him. In truth, Mr. Jones political problems had less to do with a smear campaign and
more to do with Americans learning what he stood for. Van's involvement with STORM (Standing
Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement) in the 90's and association with communist and
anarchist radicals was enough to raise flags. As journalists and bloggers started looking into what Mr.
Jones stood for, even more causes for alarm were discovered. In 2005, Jones made racially-charge
anti-white remarks in a speech where he addressed shooting incidents by white and black kids. Van
made the distinction that black kids were better because while, "a black kid might shoot another black
kid. He's not going to shoot up the whole school... you've never seen a Columbine done by a black
child... it's always <em>them"</em> them being a reference to white kids. Not only is this hateful, it's
not even correct. In 1988, a black student by the name of Nicholas Elliot took a semi-automatic
handgun and 200 rounds of ammunition to school. He proceeded to kill one teacher, wound another
and the death toll was only kept low because the gun malfunctioned. <div class="separator"

/></a></div> If blaming white kids for all school gun violence wasn't enough, Van also had signed a
statement in 2004 that attested that "people within the current administration may indeed have
deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen". Jones had attempted to disavow that he was involved with the
9/11 "truther" movement, but the group's spokesman said that all signatories were confirmed by the
organization's board and that they all knew what they were signing. Perhaps we need to look more-
closely at the remaining 31 czars. We're paying their salaries but, for many, there is no congressional
oversight, the vetting process is apparently inadequate, they may have access to classified information,
and are contributing to matters of national security. There is a reason for our system of checks and
balances and the Administration's willful disregard for our Constitution may be endangering our way
of life. So who are the czars? - Persons with an * have not been confirmed by the Senate. - Salaries
are shown for those that have been made public. - Every position listed is filling a role that could be
served by an existing department in the government perhaps saving more than $3-6 Million in annual
salaries. - Some czars even appear to be duplicates (2 auto czars, multiple middle east czars, etc) <ol>

Perhaps we need to look more-closely at the remaining 31 czars. We're paying their salaries but, for
many, there is no congressional oversight, the vetting process is apparently inadequate, they may have
access to classified information, and are contributing to matters of national security. There is a reason
for our system of checks and balances and the Administration's willful disregard for our Constitution
may be endangering our way of life.

    Van Jones, Obama's green jobs czar has resigned due to the "vicious smear campaign" waged
    against him. In truth, Mr. Jones political problems had less to do with a smear campaign and more
    to do with Americans learning what he stood for.

Inflation and How it Might Affect You

Due to current government spending policies, the fastest growing deficit in history and an
administration that is printing money out-of-nowhere in an attempt to keep artificial asset prices
(housing bubble) inflated, there is a real possibility that we may enter a period of severe price inflation.
Some respected economists, such as Mark Faber, PhD, are even concerned that hyperinflation similar
to Zimbabwe's fiscal catastrophe are not only possible, but assured. If the U.S. enters a prolonged
period of inflation, as was felt during the term of President Jimmy Carter (1977-1981), what will it
mean to the average citizen. That may well depend on how well you have prepared your assets and
finances for the possibility. Inflation occurs when an increase of prices on goods and services across a
broad section of the economy is experienced. In plain English, everything costs more. The price we
pay for goods and services can be driven up from two basic sources - supply or demand. If the
inflationary pressure is supply-side, prices are being driven upward by an increase in labor costs
(wages, benefits, etc) or by the rising costs of raw materials. If inflation is caused by the demand side
of the curve, it's simply that more-and-more people want goods and there are not enough to go around.
We hear a lot about how monetary policy can cause or ease inflation, but with the explanation above,
how is that so? To cause inflation, one thing that can happen is too much money is put into the
economy. The United States operates on a fractional reserve system. Basically, it means that a bank
can can loan out $100.00 for every $10.00 that it actually has in its reserves. That's how money gets
created. To over-simplify a bit, banks borrow $10.00 from the central bank, then loan out $100.00
backed by that $10.00. $90.00 just came out of nowhere. That's added liquidity or adding money to the
money supply. Typically the Federal Reserve will lower rates to pump liquidity into the market. This
makes money cheaper to loan/borrow so more borrowing happens which puts more money into the
marketplace to buy goods and services. Once interest rates get at or near 0% and the economy is not
growing, extreme measures are sometimes taken. Quantitative easing is just such an extreme tactic.
The Fed can no longer lower interest rates, so they start creating money out of thin air. Sometimes
called "printing money", it's actually done by creating credit in the central banks own accounts (from
nothing), and using those non-backed assets to purchase paper (bonds, loans, etc) from other banks -
now those banks have the money from nothing. Seems harmless, right? Why can't we all just credit
our accounts with money from nothing and use that to buy whatever we want? We can't do that
because it would lead to inflation - a lot of it. As more money is created, each existing dollar becomes
worth less and less. If a dollar became worth half it's current value, the face value would still be $1.00,
but it would only purchase 50 cents worth of goods. You would then need two dollars to purchase that
soda that cost a buck prior to the free-for-all printing fest. So what should we do? The best course of
action is of course to get the government to stop "printing" money, but with the debt loads the United
States is taking on and is planning on bearing, there is not much likelihood that it will stop any time
soon. Next, we as individuals would do what we can to protect our own assets and finances. There are
varying theories that run the gamut from hoarding precious metals to getting a gun and living in the
woods. I think there are some things we should be doing to prevent last-ditch tactics like those from
being necessary. First, own hard goods. Things that have value and you own outright. That's a house
without a mortgage, cars without loans, land, real estate. Some would argue that having debt is perfect
for inflation as the debt would require less money to service. Hogwash, you'll be paying so much for
gas and groceries that you'll still not be able to pay those reduced-value debts. Then you lose your
house, cars, land... all those hard goods that would have been better to own during inflationary times.
While gold is a hard asset, I have one basic concern with owning gold as a hedge to inflation. If gold
becomes a better currency than paper money, the government could do what it has done in the past -
take it from you. In 1933 President Roosevelt forced citizens to sell all of their gold at a price that had
not adjusted for inflation (roughly $21.00/ounce), once the government had all of the gold, they re-
adjusted it for inflation and deemed it worth $35.00/ounce. Gold did not function well as a hedge in
that case, and I believe a liberal government would do the same thing again to increase the money
supply if all else had failed (which it would have if we were relying on gold as currency). Let's say the
government doesn't make owning gold illegal (again). If you owned a few plots of land or houses as
assets (no liability against them), someone with a lot of gold might purchase them from you - and now
you would have the amount of gold (or dollars in a more realistic case) equal to the inflation-adjusted
worth of your property. The difference being, you bought the land with pre-inflation dollars and are
selling the land once the currency has normalized. This makes sure that you come out of an
inflationary period with the same or better net-worth than you went in with. Second, get into securities
that invest in commodities. Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that concentrate on commodities simplifies
this play. As inflation makes those commodities rise in price, your investment should reflect that
change. This is not a cure-all, be wary of what commodities your actually investing in. Gold looks to
be severely over-priced and if the price begins to drop, the Chinese will do what they always do -
dump, dump and dump. There are also inflation-protected bonds available from the treasury known as
TIPS. These securities are designed to protect investors from inflation. Not only do you benefit from
the bond yield, but your base investment will adjust for inflation. These investments do not fair as well
in normal times due to lower yields, but in a pro-longed inflationary period, this is a good play. So
with inflation, horde assets and protect your net worth.
Due to current government spending policies, the fastest growing deficit in history and an
administration that is printing money out-of-nowhere in an attempt to keep artificial asset prices
(housing bubble) inflated, there is a real possibility that we may enter a period of severe price inflation.
Some respected economists, such as Mark Faber, PhD, are even concerned that hyperinflation similar
to Zimbabwe's fiscal catastrophe are not only possible, but assured.

Patriots are protectors of the ideals of their country. I am grateful to have witnessed the largest
gathering of patriots in history. I am grateful for September 12th. I could very well end this post with
that, but you all (y'all in the native tongue) know me better. Even CNN discussed the rally in
Washington as people coming out against big government, overspending and fiscal liberalism. Seeing
the pictures of the reflection pool overwhelmed with true patriots gave me pleasant pause.
Unfortunately, I also heard the hate-speech from left-or-die liberals. On Fox news, a young African-
American woman was being interviewed by Julia Banderas and was asked about her feelings on the
overwhelmingly-large gathering in Washington. With all that has happened, all that is possible, all that
could bring this country back to its founding principals, she went right to the corrupted, special
interest, Alinskyish political party line. I wish I had captured her name, but UT (Hook 'em) was
playing and I caught her interview during a commercial and they didn't post it before the interview
ended. She basically cast-off the wishes of the 10's of thousands of people in D.C. as special interest
groups and bought-offs from insurance companies. She went on to say that everyone at this massive
demonstration were cattle or lemmings and that they were being taught the wrong things by the wrong
kind of media. I was seriously shouting at the T.V. My son and my wife share a birthday this very
weekend. Only because I have dedicated myself to them could I not have left them at home and gone
to this rally - the rally. I instead spent the day getting up at the crack of dawn so that my son could
have his favorite breakfast, see the new star wars display at the museum, take him to turn his saved-up
coins into bills, go to the store to use his hard-saved money to buy his mother a gift. Idiots like this
woman make me feel guilty for having chosen my family over my country. Idiots like her make me
sad because she has selfishly chosen her party over her country and family. Those of you who have
read what I have to say know that I have never identified with a political party. You know that I have
never issued a racist remark or pushed a corporate agenda or union intent. I have only one agenda - the
constitution of these United States. I served my country in the armed forces as did my father, uncles,
and both grandfathers. We are not PHD'd know-it-alls. I would put my family name on the line that
we understand far more about this country's heritage and ideals than all those self-interested, overly-
indoctrinated morons that cast me as a racist, a lemming, a cow. They wonder why we are angry.
They ask why we shout. They do not understand that they aren't just pushing selfish, socialist crap.
They do not understand that real citizens of these United States, want those United States... back. We
are willing to fight for that ideal, that idea. An idea for which they have no respect. They
underestimate every one of us. They underestimate each individual one of us. They do not understand
Americans at all. They have our citizenship and legal standing. They seem just like us. They are
nothing like us. They are not us. Not because we differ in color, religion, size, shape or financial
standing, but because we differ on the basic motivations and rights of every Citizen. I speak out
because I want my children to have the opportunities that my father, uncles, grandfather and I had. I
spend time, money and effort to point out those things that clearly go against the intentions of Thomas
Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington et al. I would spend everything I have to make sure
my children had the same opportunities as I and my ancestors. We are grown-ups. Grow up. Deficit
spending simply puts the cost of your wishes on your children and theirs. It is time to take
responsibility for ourselves. It's time to realize that utopia does not exist and that we must all take
responsibility for our own actions. It's time... to be Americans.
They wonder why we are angry. They ask why we shout. They do not understand that they aren't just
pushing selfish, socialist crap. They do not understand that real citizens of these United States, want
those United States... back. We are willing to fight for that ideal, that idea. An idea for which they
have no respect. They underestimate every one of us. They underestimate each individual one of us.

Health Care, Tariffs, Tort Reform: It's Not About You

The current administration is positioning their policy initiatives as if they are intended to help the
working class. Nothing could be further from the truth. It's not about us. [caption id="attachment_5"
align="alignleft" width="93" caption="SEIU for Obama Pin"]<img class="size-full wp-image-5"
title="seiu obama pin" src="http://conservativedailynews.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/seiu-
obama-pin.jpg" alt="SEIU for Obama Pin" width="93" height="93" />[/caption] Trial lawyers and
gigantic unions make billions of dollars off of the backs of the working class and are the puppet-
masters of the White House and congressional leadership. Too much is owed to these monstrous
organizations - and they know it. The leader of California's giant United Health Care Workers West,
Sal Rosselli, had the basic union strategy quoted from him as, "It's between our vision of a bottom-up
union movement and Andy Stern's[SEIU's president] idea that <em>a few folks in Washington should
control all the decisions</em>.". Andy and Sal want to make sure that they control those few people.
<!--more--> All of the unions have an interest in a government-run, tax payer funded health care
system. The current bill would relieve them of tremendous liabilities for their overly-generous
benefits. Although the bill considers that health care benefits be taxable for the common worker,
unions would get a free pass. The bill also opens the door to allow unionization of health care workers
everywhere, and could end-up making it required. Of course they are for the public option, but not
because its better for anyone other than the union leadership. The administration is putting
protectionist tariffs in-place to protect the United Steel Workers union. In retaliation, the affected
trade partners are going to tax incoming auto parts and chickens. Those affect smaller unions (and
non-union workers) which make it a calculated, acceptable loss. This short-sighted move is exactly
what helped <a href="http://plainhardtruth.blogspot.com/2009/09/is-depression-on-
horizon.html">move the recession into a depression in the 1930's</a>. Smoot-Hawley anyone? Trial
lawyers are just as influential. Tort reform has been incredibly successful at increasing access to care
in rural areas and cutting costs in both California and Texas. The trial lawyers lobby is so powerful so
that even though there is a proven tactic available, it will not be considered by the President or
congressional leaders Pelosi and Reid. Perhaps they can't help themselves. Maybe they just don't
care. We have to. <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="clear: right;
float: right; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 1em;" href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_ZQ7b2mQ1s-
Q/Sq7G3ZKvoEI/AAAAAAAAAJE/GB_0FPn-Oqw/s1600-h/pelosiSternObama.jpg"><img

Oqw/s320/pelosiSternObama.jpg" border="0" alt="Andy Stern with Obama and Pelosi" /></a></div>
Should our health care, economic, or national security put in the hands of greedy union leaders? Who
elected them? The unions are controlling the current congress and white house by calling in IOU's for
having given them the presidency and a congressional majority. We don't owe the unions anything and
I'm tired of paying for politicians having given their souls to these devils of industry.
The current administration is positioning their policy initiatives as if they are intended to help the
working class. Nothing could be further from the truth. It's not about us.

How to Take Care of Your Own Health Care

Politicians, union leaders, insurance companies and everyone else under the sun is telling us which bill,
tactic, initiative, plan or speech on health care we should support. We are told stories and shown
reports of people losing their benefits due to increasing costs. If you are financially responsible, you
can turn the tide without joining a union or requiring the government to support you. Health Savings
Accounts (HSA) were enacted during the Bush administration and are paired with high-deductible
health plans. The premiums are smaller, many employers offer an annual deposit into your HSA, and
the money that is spent out of your HSA is tax-free (pre-tax). I have personally used an HSA for three
years and have watched my premiums <em>decrease</em> for the last two years. The savings in
premiums were put back into the HSA to provide for any catastrophic medical needs we may have in
the future. Any money left in the HSA at the end of the year simply rolls-over and keeps adding up.
During years when everyone stays healthy, we rack up huge savings. If anyone gets really sick, we
don't go bankrupt, we go to the HSA. Our high-deductible health plan kicks in once we hit the
deductible and pays 100% of all costs with no limits. The key to these plans is that it only kicks in
when someone gets really sick or hurt. I don't need insurance to pay for an office visit or inexpensive
drugs. This is the same for auto insurance. Choosing higher-deductibles means having lower
premiums (or getting much better coverage for the same cost). Do we really need insurance to pay for
an oil change or cracked windshield? Not if we know how to put money away for a rainy day. You
are often able to use the money in your HSA for things that you could not use your standard
HMO/PPO plans. Dental expenses, all pharmaceuticals, therapies and treatments that a standard plan
won't pay for.<img class="size-medium wp-image-81 alignright" title="pills"
src="http://conservativedailynews.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/pills-300x225.jpg" alt="pills"
width="126" height="95" /> HSA's aren't for everyone. To avoid getting into a worse situation than
you started with, you much actively and aggressively fund it. Don't simply pick the highest-deductible
plan because it has the lowest premiums. Choosing such a high-deductible could create problems if a
medical disaster occurs before you've built up your HSA. Look at what you can put into the account,
understand what your employer's contribution will be and consider your family's health situation. If
you are the personally responsible type, consider an HSA with a high-deductible health plan. It may
save you quite a lot on health care insurance and give you more freedom in your medical choices than
you are previously accustomed. Other places to go look: <ul> <li><a

Just thought I'd share an odd weather map I ranacross when checking my own weather this evening. It
appears that a giant swath of grass is going to cross the mid-Atlantic tomorrow. I'm not exactly sure
how to dress for that. I don't think it's politically motivated, at least... I don't think I think it's political.

A tourist walks into a curio shop. Looking around at the exotica, he notices a very lifelike life-sized
bronze statue of a rat. It has no price tag, but is so striking he decides he must have it. He takes it to the
owner: "How much for the bronze rat?" "$12 for the rat, $100 for the story," says the owner. The
tourist gives the man $12. "I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story." As he walks down the street
carrying his bronze rat, he notices that a few real rats have crawled out of the alleys and sewers and
begun following him down the street. This is disconcerting, and he begins walking faster. But within a
couple of blocks, the herd of rats behind him has grown to hundreds, and they begin squealing. He
begins to trot toward the bay, looking around to see that the rats now number in the MILLIONS, and
are squealing and coming toward him faster and faster. Concerned, even scared, he runs to the edge of
the Bay, and throws the bronze rat as far out into the water as he can. Amazingly, the millions of rats
all jump into the bay after it, and are all drowned. The man walks back to the curio shop. "Ah ha,"
says the owner, "you have come back for the story?" "No," says the man, "I came back to see if you
have a bronze liberal."

I thought I would share an incredibly relevant documentary video that shows how we should rely on
the government (the good fairy) when we lose our way. There is a bit of symbolism, and it is a bit dark,
but the message it relays is very relevant to our struggles today. <object height="265"

Just because someone is a Republican, does not make them conservative. It only makes them a
politician. A few from New Jersey, and one from Maine are figuring that out.<img class="size-full
wp-image-169 alignleft" title="Co2" src="http://conservativedailynews.com/wp-
content/uploads/2009/09/Co2.jpg" alt="Cap and Trade" width="100" height="88" /> Senator Snowe
from Maine, Representatives Lance, Smith and LoBiondo all resemble Rhinos (RINO) more than
elephants. Political pets aside, all are voting in a non-conservative manner. They are all taking an
anti-trade, anti-economy,anti-energy policy stance that will make it impossible for America to evolve
its economy for the next century. They are helping the left Europize us by voting for a government-
run carbon trade exchange. In another <a title="Cap and Trade - Crisis incoming"
href="http://conservativedailynews.com/2009/09/10/cap-and-trade-a-crisis-in-the-making/"
target="_blank">CDN post</a>, we discuss the challenges that cap and trade presents to the American
economy. Some supporters of cap and trade would argue that someone has to lead the way, but China,
India, and other Asian nations have no interest in controlling emissions. By going first, we are going
alone and following Europe into a money pit and fundamental power-shift. A leader, running into
opposition, with no one behind him, is not a leader - he is a victim.
ust because someone is a Republican, does not make them conservative. It only makes them a

September 2009 has pushed the definitions of racist to beyond the realm of logical. Joe Wilson
disagreed with the President and is labelled as impolite <em>and RACIST.</em> I have called out
friends, girlfriends, associates and others for spewing mis-truths and have been corrected by the same.
Some were women, others were Mexican-American, Vietnamese-American, African-American and
several other international-Americans (by the way - I'd be Scots-Irish-American if I believed in
anything other than being American). None of them accused me of being racist, sexist, or any other -
ist and I never considered that anyone correcting me was doing it for any other reason than pointing
out my error. Are the PC police in full-effect? Are the union-controlled liberal politicians the
nightmare that Orwell prophesied in 1984? Who is that majority/minority actually? Orwell was close,
but it's not corporate giants that are pushing PC'ishness, the death to religion, and the loss of individual
freedoms... it's unions and their liberal puppets. Is this really about race, or just a way to end an
arguments that liberals cannot win. After-all, once someone throws out the "R" word, the conversation
is over, it is impossible to defend against. I'm not willing to jump off the PC cliff just yet, but this is
getting ridiculous. A white congressman is the first in history to be dealt this punishment for this kind
of action, but not the first to do the crime. Would there have been the same punishment had he been
black? Several African-Americans beat up a white child on a bus and it's not racial hate, racism, or a
hate-crime... it's bullying (just imagine the opposite - 3 white kids repeatedly beat up a black kid for a
bus seat). We have forgotten what MLK said in his enlightening speech. Color-BLIND. Not only
does it mean that white should treat black, yellow and brown the same, but that brown, yellow and
black should treat white as equal. King wanted us all to view each other as people, not races. He did
not intend to simply exchange racism, for reverse-racism. The hate-speech coming from government
leaders is dividing us. Obama promised to bring us together. By not strongly speaking out against
those who would turn simple disagreement into racism, he has condoned it. Our new President of
unity, is undoing decades of unification by allowing us to regress to an earlier age. We cannot allow
our own government to turn us, any of us, into the hateful mobs of times gone-by. We must realize
them as the divisive politicians they are and relegate them to history as a failure to America. I do not
want another white vs. black era. It was wrong, extremely wrong. This is not the way to move
forward from such terrible times. Barack, this is not the way forward... at all. This is not change, it's
more of 50 years ago.

alt="Max Baucus Chairman Senate Finance Committee" width="180" height="119" />[/caption] Max
Baucus (D-MT), the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and member of the bi-partisan "group-
of-six", explained to the press his <a title="Chariman's mark of his health care bill"
href="http://finance.senate.gov/sitepages/leg/LEG%202009/091609%20Americas_Healthy_Future_Ac
t.pdf" target="_blank">Chairman's mark of his health care bill</a>. This 220-page version has not
been accepted by the Finance Committee nor the gang-of-six members and there are positive and
negative sentiments being expressed from both sides of the isle. This bill pushes for much faster
action. Unlike H.R. 3200, which does not do much of anything until after the Presidential elections in
2012, this bill proposes to do a few things almost-immediately. The plan will insure those with pre-
existing conditions "within a year of enactment". Those individuals would have access to a high-risk
pool where those individuals' premiums will be subsidized by $5 billion in government funding. The
bill also requires the establishment of State Exchanges in 2010 through which consumers could
purchase health plans. To increase competition, the framework proposes two changes to the existing
insurance model. First, it will allow (not force), states to form inter-state "health care choice
compacts" to allow an insurer to sell insurance in other states, but how many of these will form is
questionable. Any policies sold under a compact would be subject to only the laws of the state in
which the policy is written. That would mean that compacts would most-likely emerge only between
states with similar regulations and laws. Even though the laws of the insurer's state is enforced, the
regulatory responsibility appears to be split among the insurer's state and the insured's state. Secondly,
national plans, which contain uniform benefits, could be offered across state lines. The insurer
offering such national plans must be licensed in every state in which they intend to sell the plan.
Although the benefits must be uniform, the premiums may not be. The rating rules of each state will
be considered and individually enforced for the calculation of premiums. The bill does not appear
entirely partisan as major concessions appear to have been made from both perspectives. The most-
notable being that tort reform has been left out which will appeal to the trial-lawyer lobby on the
liberal side. Instead, there is soft language in the back of the bill that states, "Congress should consider
establishing a state demonstration program to evaluate alternatives to the current civil litigation
system.". The left may also appreciate that The bill does require that all Americans have health
insurance by 2013. The penalties will range from $750/yr for individuals on the low-end of the pay-
scale to $3800.00/yr for families on the high-side. $750.00 a year isn't much of a penalty and will
certainly be attractive to those that are currently uninsured. If the cheapest premium exceeds 10% of a
person's adjusted gross income, no excise tax will be levied (progressive tax). Until 2013, anyone
under 100% of FPL will be exempt from excise tax. In 2013 anyone that makes less than 133% of
FPL. For conservatives, this framework does not include the hot-button issue of a public option and
the bill does require that proof of citizenship or lawful residence be obtained prior to issuing a a policy
to an individual. The verification must be done against the Social Security Administration data for
citizens and Department of Homeland Security data for legal aliens. The plan also does not require
nor does it prevent payments for abortions. Current State laws will continue to regulate those
activities. To supplant the public option, the bill does provide for private, non-profit co-ops. As they
are non-profit they would conceivably be forced to use any profits to control costs, improve benefits
and keep premiums low. The co-ops cannot be sponsored by any level of government and must be
governed by a vote of its members. Alot of costs will be shifted to the states. "Childless adults"
otherwise ineligible for medicaid, that are at or below 133% of FPL will be required to be covered by
Medicaid - a taxpayer funded, state-run health care plan. States are already drowning in red ink and
Medicaid is one of the major causes for state-level deficit spending. Beginning in 2014 more federal
money will be used to subsidize state medicaid programs to alleviate the burden of covering these
newly-eligible beneficiaries. Several initiatives are in the bill that are intended to improve the
efficiency and efficacy of Medicare. Medicare payments to hospitals and physicians will be based on
actual performance. 2012 would be a base-line year to collect statistics and 2013 the first year where
Medicare reimbursement is based on meeting or beating the standards created from those base-lines.
There is a section to institute a pilot to find alternative pay methods to create incentives for providers
to coordinate patient care across the continuum of care, re-categorizes Physician's Assistants as
Attending Physicians for Medicare-covered hospice services and establishes a Medicare Commission
to examine and make recommendation to congress to solve the Medicare insolvency problem. One
change that is does not seem to actually improve Medicare is that $22.29 billion is being eliminated
from Medicare for the Medicare Improvement Fund which was intended to make improvements to
parts A and B of Medicare. A few new bureaucracies are also created within Baucus' plan. The bill
establishes Board of Governors for the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute. The institute is
intended to make recommendations to congress in hopes of curing the Medicare insolvency issue. A "
Workforce Advisory Committee", that includes union leadership, will also be created to look into
increasing the availability of trained medical professionals. Some changes to existing insurance
programs also appear in the bill. The pairing of a health savings account with a high-deductible health
plan is often used by consumers to keep their health care costs low. Baucus has implemented a change
that will eliminate the use of HSA funds for non-physician prescribed (over-the-counter) medicines.
Currently HSA disbursements could be used tax-free for those kinds of medicines. There are new
mechanisms to fund the Medicare trust fund in Baucus' plan. A little more than $13 billion comes
from a combination of drug companies ( $2.3 billion), medical device manufacturers ($4 billion), $6
billion from providers, and $750 million from clinical laboratories, in fees to be paid on an annual
basis. This is in addition to the 2.9% tax currently levied on all income-earners in America. Finally,
the Baucus bill levies a 35% excise tax on insurance companies for premium plans which includes any
plan with benefits worth more than $8,000 for individuals or $21,000 for families. Corporate taxes are
always passed on to consumers which will inevitably result in either premium plans being eliminated
by the insurance companies or taxes being passed on to consumers as higher premiums. As the co-ops
are non-profits, they would be exempt from federal taxes giving them an unfair advantage in the
premium insurance market. Of major concern to both conservatives and liberals, is that middle-class
households could be hit by premiums that are up-to and including 13% of their gross income. The
issue is that if premiums are going to be such a large percentage of American's income, where are the
savings? <strong>See Also: <a title="House version of health care reform"

discussing real issues has left the building. Conservatives must realize their current strengths and
ignore these tactics. When called a racist, ignore and re-ask your question. Whatever your you asked
pushed them in a corner and they threw out the race card. For decades liberals have presented
themselves as premier debaters, highly-educated mentors, the true elite. Most conservatives were
happy-enough providing for families, starting businesses and getting along that they just let the noise
continue. Now is the time where the noise may cost you. Listen to the messages, interpret them. If
they are simply insulting, move on. It simply means they cannot debate and have no decent message.
SEIU, NEA, Steel workers, Auto workers, health care unions, ACORN... they control the liberal
congress and media. They are irrelevant and just don't know it yet. Yesterday, former-President
Carter communicated that most of the opposition to Obama is racist. Mr. Carter, you have no more a
clue now than you did when you screwed this nation into the ground in the 70s. 12% of Americans
agree with Carter. The rest of us do not despise Barack Obama, we abhor his ideas, ideals and politics.
Do not confuse dissension with hate. We do not hate him, we are counting the days down until we get
to vote him and the liberal congress out of office.

Liberals Mount Attack on Dissenters

/>[/caption] In an Alisnky-style attack, liberals are attempting to ridicule, shame, and belittle critics of
Obama administration policies instead of debating the actual issues. Nancy Pelosi, a liberal leader and
Speaker of the House of Representatives, today issued a dire warning while speaking to reporters. One
member of the press asked what she thought of the recent anti-Obamacare discussion. Pelosi's
response was that she has "concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw this
myself in the late '70s in San Francisco". The Speaker then when on to say that she found the rhetoric
from those that disagreed with her to be, "very frightening". Liberals have often said that those that
disagree with them don't discuss the issues and resort to name-calling and fear-mongering. In a turn-
of-fate, the left has decided to use the tactic they often criticized others for employing. Yesterday,
another liberal congressional Representative, Maxine Waters(D-CA) stated that she wanted to see
health care reform critics <em>investigated</em>. She used terms like "Tea Bagger" and "Birther" to
lump all of Obama's critics together using belittling terms. <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-

allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object> It's no longer an isolated
tactic. Liberals from all corners of the left are signing on to the practice of labeling, generalizing, and
name-calling anyone that disagrees with them. Recently, Jimmy Carter, in a television interview,
commented that he believes that most of the anti-Obama sentiment is purely race-based. In reviewing
comments on multiple liberal blogs, it's apparent that there is a growing movement within the left to
label all dissent as racist and dangerous. These claims appear to be galvanizing those that disagree
with left-leaning politics and consequently increasing membership and activism in the anti-big
government movement. It is possible that by grouping different anti-liberal groups together, the left
have created a daunting common enemy where there was once a bunch of much smaller ones.

alt="cargo ship" width="150" height="150" />Still thickly in the middle of the biggest economic
catastrophe since the great depression, American policy makers are making anti-free trade decisions
that are eerily similar to the protectionist moves made during the depression. The A.R.R.A. (stimulus
bill), has provisions in it that only allow the money to be spent on "manufactured goods" that are made
in America. While a welcome gift to the American steel industry and steelworkers union, reaction
from foreign trading partners much colder. American companies now face the proposition of being
blocked from bidding on contracts in other countries. Canada and the EU have raised extreme
objections to the move and are considering two counter-measures. First, they have petitioned the
World Trade Organization, which is largely for show, but also allows them to take the second action -
putting tariffs on American goods going into their countries. By petitioning the W.T.O., those
countries are not vulnerable to claims from the U.S. that they are engaging in unprovoked anti-trade
actions. Caterpillar Tractor is undertaking an effort to be involved with major projects in China. Due
to the recent placement of a tariff (tax on imported goods) on Chinese tires, the American heavy
equipment manufacturer may find it much tougher to sell it's machines in the rapidly-growing Chinese
economy. China has already filed a grievance with the W.T.O. and is now moving to place counter-
tariffs on American imports of chickens and auto parts. Highly-controversial agricultural subsidies
have existed for decades. Some farm subsidies are actually larger than the cost of the product itself.
The U.N. found in 2001 that the U.S. subsidy on a pound of cotton was more than 52 cents per pound.
It costs just above 20 cents per pound to grow cotton in some countries outside the U.S. Mercantilist
policies are also being applied to our neighbors to the south. Restrictions on Mexican trucks on U.S.
highways are making it more expensive for Mexican manufacturers to put their goods on American
shelves. While not a direct tariff, it has the same effect. How long will it be before American goods
are less welcome in Mexico? Protectionism was a major factor in turning the 1929 recession into the
great depression. It was the leading factor into making the U.S. depression up to 5 years longer than in
most other nations in the world during that period. By taking the same steps, making the same
mistakes, and being naive of history, we could be inviting <a
href="http://conservativedailynews.com/2009/09/10/depression-experts-concern/" target="_blank">the
next great depression.</a>

FDIC May Resort to Treasury Borrowing to Avoid Collapse

On September 18th, the FDIC announced two more bank closures that would require funds from the
insurance corporation in-order-to protect depositor's money. This month alone there have been ten
bank failures and the month isn't over yet. There were fifteen closures in August and at the current
pace, it's entirely possible that September will have between 14 and 20 closures. The second quarter's
failure rate was the fastest since the savings and loan crisis in the early 1990's, and it's not slowing
down yet. <a href="http://www2.fdic.gov/qbp/2009jun/p13ch1.html"><img class="alignright"
title="FDIC Reserve Ratio" src="http://www2.fdic.gov/qbp/2009jun/fund.gif" alt="FDIC Reserve
Ratio" width="300" height="166" /></a> While the fact that banks are failing is disconcerting, the real
alarm that is silently going off is that the FDIC is running out of money to cover the deposits of
banking customers. The FDIC is required by law to keep an amount equal to 1.25% of covered
deposits on-hand. Currently, the insurance fund contains a ration of less than .22%. Despite the fact
that at the end of June financial institutions were forced to pay a special assessment of 5-10 basis
points of deposits (not including their mandatory reserves), the drain on the the insurance fund
continued. Bank failures are cited as the major reason for the collapse of the fund, but looking ahead,
there is growing concern over banks that are teetering on the edge of collapse. The number of
"problem institutions" is increasing and the rate-of-increase is also quickening. Problem institutions
are not yet failed, but have financials that show that they are in-danger of failing soon. In fact, roughly
13% of banks on the problem list have historically failed. <a
href="http://www2.fdic.gov/qbp/2009jun/qproblb1.html"><img class="alignright" title="Insured
Problem Institutions" src="http://www2.fdic.gov/qbp/2009jun/grbook%5Cgraphs%5Cdproblb1.gif"
alt="" width="264" height="198" /></a> The deposit fund lost $2.6 billion in the second quarter
which leaves just over ten billion dollars available to cover deposits in failed banks. At the current
rate, there is just over a year's worth of coverage in the fund, but with the rate increasing, it is more-
realistic that it will run out of money in less than a year. The FDIC is considering tapping U.S.
Treasury to re-stock the fund. On Friday, Sheila Bair, FDIC chairman, indicated that the FDIC may
consider borrowing money from the Treasury when it meets at the end of this month. The FDIC could
borrow up to $100 billion under the Helping Families Save Their Homes Act. Congress also has the
option of allowing the FDIC to have access of up to $400 billion more by temporarily increasing the
ceiling of that line-of-credit. The only other option left to the insurer is to increase fees or levy
additional assessments against financial institutions. Banks argue that this might raise the risk of
failures for institutions on the edge. Those banks need access to as much liquidity as possible to work
through the recession. The debate over who should replenish the fund is then between taxpayers and
financial institutions. Barney Frank, Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee believes
that the FDIC should go straight for the Treasury loan. While this reduces stress on the banking
industry, it is more "money from nowhere" ending up in the economy. The Treasury money is simply
money that the Fed "printed" to buy Treasury Securities. That liquidity would then be put into the
FDIC. We would be propping up our banking system with little more than thin air and increasing the
risk that we will head into a severe bought of inflation reminiscent of the 1970's. <strong>See Also:

    While the fact that banks are failing is disconcerting, the real alarm that is silently going off is that
    the FDIC is running out of money to cover the deposits of banking customers. The FDIC is
    required by law to keep an amount equal to 1.25% of covered deposits on-hand. Currently, the
    insurance fund contains a ration of less than .22%

<ul> <li>CNN performed a second set of polls allowing Americans to judge Obama's performance.
The first had given the President a C+ for his first 100 days and this week they released his second 100
days poll: a C-. Obama is expected to give himself a speech on working harder and getting better
grades.</li> <li>SEIU and ACORN band together to protect worker's rights. The newly-formed
Street-walkers Union of America has asked Kanye West to act as spokesperson and Charles Rangel for
Treasurer.</li> <li>Conservatives turned into racists and became "dangerous" as evidenced by the
exactly zero people that were arrested for doing $0.00 in property damage in D.C. during the largest
conservative protest in history.</li> <li>The first glimmer of bi-partisanship felt during the Obama
administration was felt as an almost-unanimous agreement that the Senate proposal on health care <a
title="Proposed Senate Health Care bill" href="http://conservativedailynews.com/2009/09/16/baucus-
reveals-health-future-bill/" target="_self">(Finance Committee Chairman's Mark) </a> is not the way
to go.</li> <li>CNN's Wolf Blitzer got it wrong on Jeopardy, but then again, CNN tends to get it
wrong and Americans think that the media gets it wrong more than 70% of the time.</li> <li>The
FDIC is running out of money. ACORN is losing access to our money. The Baucus bill is about
giving more of our money to prop-up Medicare.</li> <li>Jobless claims fell, but states report that
more jobs got lost than before. Obama to work with AFL-CIO and SEIU on creating the Unemployed
Workers Union. Union dues will be paid for by an excise tax on non-union working citizens
wages.</li> <li>Patrick Swayze lost his battle, Obama is losing his health care battle and now he is
unable to make a decisions on the Afghan battlefield.</li> <li>Bernanke said the recession is gone.
The FDIC said it's money is gone. Kanye proved that his decency was gone.</li> <li>Congress spent
millions on stimulus signs, and voted for millions more. The Union of over-paid sign-makers claims
recession is over thanks to the president's stimulus.</li> <li>The guiding light went off the air, Pelosi
just went off, and Time Magazine said we should turn Glenn Beck off.</li> <li>Joe Wilson got
censured, ACORN got dumped from census taking, and Pelosi got frightened out of her senses. I'm
not sure how you would tell that by facial expression alone.</li> </ul>

Breitbart Signals "Blockbuster" News This Week

http://conservativedailynews.com/?p=276

Conservative commentator and author Andrew Breitbart hinted that a blockbuster news story would be
coming this week. Blogs are alive with speculation as to what Andrew has up his sleeve considering
his early digging into the problems at ACORN that finally resulted in the current investigations. Blogs
posts and forums are filled with guesses from the masses and sparse hints from some in-the-know. The
possible topics seem to all surround the current administration are primarily around four topics. The
easiest to dismiss is the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA) scandal where it was reported that the
group was using it's resources to promote the administration's agenda. While a noteworthy story, it's
no blockbuster and Andrew would not be hyping-up such a dead story. Second is the thought that
perhaps the ACORN pimp-hooker films were fished around to the major television networks (ABC,
NBC, CBS) and were told that they would run the story, but didn't. The scandal not just being that the
networks said they would run it and then buried it, but perhaps they had hidden camera going during
these conversations. This is plausible, but unless there were some obviously nefarious comments or
actions in the video, again... not a blockbuster. Third is actually a story about a story - a story that
didn't happen. Stephanie Strom had been working on an article about the links between ACORN and
the Obama campaign. Once a damning piece of evidence was found, the executives at the NYT shut
her story down saying that it was a "game-changer". If the evidence was so good, then it's possible
that federal campaign laws had been violated. The real question might be how much he knew? This
has the smell of the huge story that Breitbart might be pushing. The last is still swirling and seems to
have the most credibility. The central figure in this final possibility is Buffy Wicks. Most do not
believe it is simply a tie-in to the NEA scandal although Buffy was one of the seven officials present at
the white house meeting between administration representatives and NEA leadership. Buffy had
served multiple roles during the Obama campaign -western regional Field Director, Missouri state
director and Texas state deputy director. She had also previously functioned as the "Wake-up Wal-
Mart" political director. Buffy had spent considerable portions of her early career working to get
higher pay and bigger benefit packages for union employees. So how does this all roll into a blow-out
news story? So Buffy is involved, but not necessarily the center of the story. Is it Unions (SEIU?
AFL-CIO?), illegal donations during the campaign? Could it be the NEA thing or perhaps some other
malfeasance during his run for president? The Wal-Mart thing? It's anyone's guess, but we will be
paying very close attention to this week's news.

    Man, a couple of nothing posts today.. saw some silly ideas that it might be NEA, I hope not, that
    story is over. Beck had good stuff on the SEIU, ACORN, Soros relationships and the sad attempt
    Lewis is making at an "independent" panel. All libo lifers. Ah well, dying to see this come out.

Adjustible loan disaster looming for California

Members of Congress, the President, and anyone else with an opinion is still blaming the recession on
greedy corporations. This article isn't about rehashing the debate, but... what about the greedy
government elitists? What about us? The government needs us to borrow more to feed the partial-
reserve economy system we have. To get us to borrow more, they need us buying cars and houses, and
not the cheap ones. ACORN was out rioting against banks and threatening bankers to force them to
give loans to people that could not afford them... ever. Barney Franks fought against controls in
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that would have prevented many of the bad loans that greedy wall street
corporations then had no choice but to repackage, resell and pray. God never answered. The
government has done everything it could to keep home values at ridiculous prices and had failed.
Bubble: Part Two, has been setup by the Obama administration and Franks. Once all the liquidity they
are creating has its effect, inflation will follow. Next will be interest rates that will make the 80's look
like a picnic. Inflation is hard enough, but what about all those homeowners that have adjustable
loans, on property that is now mortgaged at 125% of actual house value, and they've been making
minimum payments. Once the interest rates skyrocket and those ARMs reset... their payments could
increase by up to 75% - they will have to simply walk away and leave the bank holding the bag.
According to the most-recent "Negative Equity Data Report" from First American Core Logic,
California had 43,000 home owners recently slide into negative equity positions (the house is worth
less than the mortgage). Overall, California has 723,000 properties in a "severe negative equity
position" (a.k.a. in real trouble). Nearly one-third of all mortgages in California are under-water. 18%
of interest-only loans are currently 60-days and Californian banks will be stretched to cover loses of
that magnitude. There are those that argue that the ARM catastrophe isn't that bad and that it will only
affect high-end states like California and Florida. Unfortunately, when those golden and sunshine state
banks fail in record numbers...wait for it... the <a title="FDIC goes broke"
href="http://conservativedailynews.com/2009/09/19/fdic-may-resort-to-treasury-borrowing-to-avoid-
collapse/" target="_self">FDIC is already running out of money</a> <a title="FDIC is broke"
href="http://conservativedailynews.com/2009/09/19/fdic-may-resort-to-treasury-borrowing-to-avoid-
collapse/" target="_self">[link]</a>. The FDIC will be awarded larger and larger lines of credit to
cover the bank failures. That credit comes from the treasury which gets its money from - the Fed. Of
course the Fed gets money from thin air - aka "printing it". Interest rates will go ever higher and now
middle-value loans start getting affected. The recession is not over, and it wasn't caused by some
CEO's greed. It was caused by the greed of the average citizen doing what their government wanted
them to do - borrow more than they could afford to pay back. That way, we could look just like them.

Scott Ott published an article in the <em>Washington Examiner</em> that could very well fix
everything using the Obama administration's favorite tool - the public option. "White House sources
said today that President Obama may soon propose legislation that would save Americans billions of
dollars each year while improving service by creating a 'public option' version of the federal
government. The new entity would introduce 'choice and competition' to the lethargic big-government
market, currently dominated in many areas of the country..." <a title="Public option saves us all"

Social Security Will Go into Deficit in 2010

<a title="Social Security going broke" href="http://hotair.com/archives/2009/09/22/exclusive-cbo-
predicts-social-security-cash-deficits-in-2010-11/" target="_blank"><em>Hot Air</em></a> is
reporting that it has obtained a report from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (C.B.O.) that
shows that Social Security is in more trouble than Obama's Director of the Office of Management and
Budget (O.M.B.), Peter Orszag, previously reported. The C.B.O. and the C.B.O. website and
"Director's Blog" contain no mention or repudiation of the report. Apparently, they haven't read their
own memo yet. Orszag, Obama's "Supernerd", is an economist that previously served as the Director
of the C.B.O. and was responsible for the publication of the previous report that stated that social
security would not go into deficit spending until at least 2019. This new report, under the guidance of
a new director, indicates the social security will run deficits in 2010. The differences between the two
reports, by two different directors raises questions of either Orszag's ethics or his competence. If
Orszag manipulated the previous reports or influenced his subordinates to manipulate the them, there
are serious ethics violations. Did he do it just to get into the current Administration or because he
wanted to curry favor with the liberal congress that had just effectively killed President Bush's attempts
to reform social security by claiming that the program wouldn't have any problems for fifty (50) years
or more. On the flip side, it could simply be incompetence. Reviewing <a title="Orszag to Cut Social
Security" href="http://www.brookings.edu/papers/2005/04saving_diamond.aspx" target="_blank">a
paper written by Orszag and Peter Diamond</a>, they propose a combination of tax increases and
benefit cuts to salvage the possibility of a deficit. If this were his true desire, presenting social security
as stronger than it actually is would not help him make the case for massive cuts and tax increases.
This would indicate that he actually believed that the government-run retirement program would be
stable for longer than it actually will. Mr. Orszag is now the minder of the White House budget.
There will be situations where the O.M.B. will publish reports that discount or contradict those of the
C.B.O. If either Director Orszag's ethics or competence are in-question, then certainly his credibility is
shot as well.

There have been myriad posts recently about how our current leadership is apologizing for us,
alienating our allies and endearing our enemies. What these articles have not made clear is how many
friends we are ditching and how vehemently we are befriending the violent totalitarians of our day.
Just today, press secretary Robert Gibbs spent his working hours explaining to the media how ok it was
that Obama was not having a meeting with the prime minister of.... England while the PM was in the
U.S. for the U.N. General Assembly meeting. It might seem somewhat overblown, but Obama turned
down no fewer than FIVE direct requests from the British leadership to meet. Five. From an ally.
FIVE! But he will meet with Amenijad or Chavez or without pre-conditions. Obama has actually
had no issues with one-on-one meetings with China's hu Jintao and Russia's Medvedev . Why these
leaders and not one of America's closest allies. Why? The apologetic attitude that Obama has taken in
international speeches is unforgivable at best and possibly treasonous. He is not defending this country
nor its constitution and he took an oath to do both. Obama has set the Isreali-Palestinian converstion
back 30+ years by de-negotitating everything that has been gathered so far and empowering a Palestine
government that is nearly-leaderless, certainly lawless, unforgivably murderous, and down-right mean.
With the Mexican violence happening to our south, and the Obama administration cutting border
agents along the southern border by almost 400... don't be upset when no one supports us when we
have to fight back against the onslaught of Mexican violence. We are walking away from true friends
and supporting those that do not want us as friends, they just want us to continue to let them spread
death, hate and dispare.

The delta smelt has taken on a vicious campaign against California food growers. The smelt have
collectively contacted their representatives and senators to let them know that if more water is not
diverted into their rivers, the congresspeople will be voted out. The "Smelts for Obama" Political
Action Committee has promised all of its resources to the wishes of the new President in return for
more water. Not just more, but all of it. There was some concern that congress would not listen to
fish, even with the threat of a loss of voter support, but that has proven untrue. California congress
members have acted and the fish are encouraged by the truly representative democracy they swim
within. There is no doubt that farmers have been out-maneuvered by the smelt PAC. In a democracy,
that's what happens - those with the majority (fish) have power over those that do not (the people). It
is possible that we must get used to this as Cass Sunstein (an Obama administration official) may make
it possible for animals to sue us. A position I support, as long as it becomes legal to hunt lawyers.
Farmers have had to live with infertile lands, dying orchards and farmland, and impossible growing
conditions. The 40% unemployment conditions are just a cost of making sure the aquatic segment of
the populace are taken care of. Some are crying that an ineffective census has left farmers with even
more rights than they should have had. Clearly, there are more fish than farmers and in a
representative government... the fish win. The lessen to farmers... spawn or get out-voted by an animal
that lives about a year and has no value to the economy whatsoever.

A Honda employee demonstrates Honda's new "personal mobility" device at a press conference in
Tokyo, Japan, Thursday, Sept. 24, 2009. Honda's new "personal mobility" device looks like a unicycle,
but all you need to do to zip around in it _ sideways as well as forward and back _ is lean your weight
into the direction you want to go. The U3-X _ available for a test-run for reporters in Tokyo Thursday
_ was designed to take up the same amount of space as a human being to be safe and unobtrusive
enough to mingle with pedestrians, according to Honda Motor Co. (AP Photo/Shizuo Kambayashi)

Health Care Reform Does Not Increase Competition

For months we have been fed several mis-truths, myths, and outright lies about health care. It is
certainly worthwhile to evaluate all the individual frauds, but we may be missing the forest for the
trees. The major reform that the President and Congress are proposing is to reduce costs by increasing
competition. Unfortunately, nothing they are planning will increase competition at the point of
delivery at all. In-fact it will diminish it as costs will be even further hidden from actual consumers.
Liberals are stating that the free market has failed to keep costs low. Our health care industry is
nothing close to free market. In a free market system, the consumer (patients) would evaluate how
effective a producer (doctors, hospitals, care facilities) is and measure them against competitors. As
most people under standard insurance plans pay their set co-pay regardless of what the provider
actually charges, they have no incentive to shop around based on value and hence, the providers have
no market-based incentive to control costs. Imagine a health care system where we had to decide how
to spend our own health care dollars. Doctors would have to compete on service <em>and</em>
price. They would be forced to find efficiencies within their own offices and hospitals to be able to be
competitive in the marketplace. That is not how it works today - at all. High-deductible health plans
paired with Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) put many health care consumers in the driver's seat.
Because they are spending real money out of an account that they manage, these consumers tend to
shop for their health care services, abuse the system far less, and consider less-expensive drugs and
treatments that are as effective. This kind of health plan is certainly closer to showing how a free
market health care system might work. Unfortunately, not everyone is responsible enough to manage
their own health care costs. In our current system, insurance companies work as an insulator between
the consumer and producers. The providers might perform tests or treatments that are more-expensive
because the insurance will pay for them. If they had to sell the cost to the consumer, the patient might
actually push back and ask for alternatives and evaluate them all based on effectiveness and cost. The
reform packages attempt to do this value-based evaluation by setting up 10's of bureaucracies to
evaluate the cost and effectiveness of treatments. Unfortunately it will work just like insurance. They
will have fee schedules that say that they will pay for those treatments and what they will pay. The
only one making a decision at the point-of-care will be the doctor and if the expensive treatment will
get paid for, the doctor could use it. The patient will pay their co-pay regardless if the most or least
expensive treatment is proposed. If the person making the health care choices (patients) is not making
those choices based on cost, there will be no downward pressure on health care costs. If hospitals and
providers knew that patients might choose less-expensive, but effective, institutions, they would be
forced to use the most cost-effective solutions, not the solutions they could charge the insurance
company the most for. The health care reforms proposed will hide the costs of care even more.
Smaller co-pays, no maximums, etc. That money has to come from somewhere. It will come from the
premiums of everyone that is not too poor to pay. If a government-run plan is added, it will come from
taxes as well just like Medicare and Medicaid. Health care won't get cheaper this way, it will just be
less obvious to us that it's more expensive. Other Articles on Health Care Reform: <a title="Health

Health care reform is touting to fix what the free-market system could not, but the free-market isn't
even in our health care industry today.
