Gibson Blasts Olbermann and the Fox Haters!

Does the U.S. Constitution authorize congress to force Americans to buy health insurance?

Robert J. Samuelson: Public plan mirage

"The promise of the public plan is a mirage. Its political brilliance is to use free-market rhetoric (more 'choice' and 'competition') to expand government power. But why would a plan tied to Medicare control health spending, when Medicare hasn't? From 1970 to 2007, Medicare spending per beneficiary rose 9.2 percent annually compared to the 10.4 percent of private insurers -- and the small difference partly reflects cost shifting. Congress periodically improves Medicare benefits, and there's a limit to how much squeezing reimbursement rates can check costs. Doctors and hospitals already complain that low payments limit services or discourage physicians from taking Medicare patients."

Andrea Lafferty: Obama’s ‘Transparency’ Behind Closed Doors?

"When President Obama was on the campaign trail last year, he repeatedly promised that his legislative actions would be transparent and open. In fact, he promised that legislation would be posted on the Internet for 72 hours before a vote. He also promised that legislative debates on health care reform would be telecast on C-SPAN.

"What happened? During the past week, Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and a gaggle of other 'progressive' legislators have been in secret meetings on Capitol Hill to craft a health care bill that will nationalize our health care system – cost billions – and still leave millions underinsured.

"Did Obama renege on his 'transparency' pledge? It looks like it. He's reneged because he knows most Americans like their health insurance coverage and don't want to be drafted into a government-run system. They don't want to be punished by Big Brother if they don't get coverage. And, they are deeply concerned about the trillion dollar price tag of this socialist plan to destroy private health insurance in America.

"Obama is acting more like a Soviet bureaucrat than a man who believes in the democratic process. His cronies are acting like Chicago union bosses."

Congress Considers "End of Christian Witness" Legislation

"In Oakland, California, a handful of African-American Christian women found out that their free speech rights had effectively been outlawed. Their Christian witness was interpreted as 'hate.'

"'Hate crimes' bills inevitably create the 'thought police' by giving the federal government jurisdiction over local criminal offenses believed to be 'motivated by prejudice.'

"In Alberta, Canada, a former pastor and head of a Christian organization Stephen Boissoin, sent a letter to a local paper on the issue of sexual orientation. Two weeks later a gay teen was beaten up, and after years of litigation, the pastor was found guilty of violating a 'hate crimes' human rights law because the letter likely exposed gays to hatred and contempt - despite the fact that he had never advocated violence of any sort in his letter or otherwise.

"A judge in New York has ruled evidence of 'hatred' is unnecessary for a prosecutor to pursue a 'hate crimes' case against three men arrested for the death of a homosexual man. . . . concluding prosecutors only need to show that the man, who was beaten and then hit by a vehicle in a robbery attempt, was picked because of his sexual orientation.

"And while artists receive government funding for acclaimed exhibits of Jesus being defiled in urine, and by many other means . . . a 23-year-old man was arrested on hate-crime charges after he threw a Quran in a toilet at Pace University on two separate occasions."

"Finally, why continue importing 2.5 million immigrants into this country annually when we cannot support or employ our own citizens? Additionally, when you see 600,000 Muslim immigrants added to Detroit, Michigan—sporting a 76 percent dropout rate from area high schools—you can count on illiterate, upset, angry and culturally incompatible Muslim-Americans taking their frustrations out on the rest of us. Expect growing domestic violence, honor killings, FGM, rapes and much worse as now experienced in Sweden, France and Great Britain, and, of course here in the U.S. Check out the numbers and take action at www.NumbersUSA.com and join as if your kids’ lives and this civilization depended on it."


"Speaking of Obama, the Presidential Approval Index (as reported by Rasmussen) has dropped more than 30 points since he took office. More Americans now "strongly disapprove" of the President than 'strongly approve' of him."

Patti Villacorta:The Originators of Obama-speak: Public Allies and the ABCD Institute

"Let’s apply the ABCD version of the world to the failed Olympics bid:

"The Need/Deficit Model: The trip was a waste of time and taxpayer money. The Obama administration is rife with Chicago cronyism. Failure now permeates the White House.

"The ABCD Model: As much of a sacrifice as people say this is for me or Oprah or the president to come for these few days, so many of you in this room have been working for years to bring this bid home, and you have put together a phenomenal set of ideas that, no matter what the outcome is, we should be proud of as a city.

"If you are having a difficult time understanding the Obamas, looking deeper into the activities and teachings of Public Allies will help."

Wall Street Journal: What Is a 'Windfall' Profit?

"The 'windfall profits' tax is back, with Barack Obama stumping again to apply it to a handful of big oil companies. Which raises a few questions: What is a 'windfall' profit anyway? How does it differ from your everyday, run of the mill profit? Is it some absolute number, a matter of return on equity or sales -- or does it merely depend on who earns it?

"Enquiring entrepreneurs want to know. Unfortunately, Mr. Obama's 'emergency' plan, announced on Friday, doesn't offer any clarity. To pay for 'stimulus' checks of $1,000 for families and $500 for individuals, the Senator says government would take "a reasonable share" of oil company profits.

"Mr. Obama didn't bother to define 'reasonable,' and neither did Dick Durbin, the second-ranking Senate Democrat, when he recently declared that 'The oil companies need to know that there is a limit on how much profit they can take in this economy.' Really? This extraordinary redefinition of free-market success could use some parsing."
