From an email....

Dear Sirs:

"During my last night's shift in the ER, I had the pleasure of evaluating a patient with a shiny new gold tooth, multiple elaborate tattoos, a very expensive brand of tennis shoes and a new cellular telephone equipped with her favorite R&B tune for a ringtone. Glancing over the chart, one could not help noticing her payer status: Medicaid. She smokes more than one costly pack of cigarettes every day and, somehow, still has money to buy beer.

And our Congress expects me to pay for this woman's health care? Our nation's health care crisis is not a shortage of quality hospitals, doctors or nurses. It is a crisis of culture - a culture in which it is perfectly acceptable to spend money on vices while refusing to take care of one's self or, heaven forbid, purchase health insurance. A culture that thinks 'I can do whatever I want to because someone else will always take care of me'. Life is really not that hard. Most of us reap what we sow.

Don't you agree?

New Black Conservative Author Defies Liberalism and Breaks Stereotypes

Over the last few generations, African-Americans have been the most loyal constituency of the Democratic Party. At the same time, African-American communities have been destroyed with crime, broken families, unemployment, escalating dropout rates and immorality. It's no coincidence that in these communities you will find Democrats repeatedly elected with super-majorities.

Andre Harper, a former Democrat, exposes how he rejected the dominant political thought process that has crippled the black community. He outlines how many of today's political elite have gained control of the American political system by exploiting African-Americans and the so-called poor. Harper gives first hand accounts of how he overcame poverty and realized the American Dream which he believes is available to all Americans.

Harper empowers Americans to reach their potential by emancipating from an environment that is dependent on maintaining a permanent underclass. Political Emancipation is a must read for anyone who wants a glimpse into the real African-American experience through the mind of a black man that has defied liberal indoctrination and is able to articulate and masterfully exposes its fallacies.

Having spent living most of his young life on some type of public assistance, military service and overcoming difficult odds, Andre Harper is indeed one in a million. When you combine his military service, education from a historically black university, and diversity of work experience that includes working as a fast-food manager and now having six years of work experience in a U.S. Senate office, Harper is uniquely qualified to offer a perspective not represented in the contemporary political discussion. His diverse experience has allowed him to skillfully dissect the liberal agenda in a way that no one has before. He courageously proclaims his opposition to liberalism and the Democratic Party because Harper is unapologetically Black and unapologetically conservative.

Andre Harper is the founder and president of The Knowledge Movement, LLC., focused on empowering communities to achieve the American Dream by defying oppressive political agendas. He is a former congressional aide and graduate of Florida A&M University. Harper is a decorated veteran of the United States Army and has been recognized by President George W. Bush, members of Congress, and several publications for his service. He originates from West Palm Beach, FL, lived in Cincinnati, OH for several years and now resides in Pennsylvania with his wife and children.

"So the trap has snapped shut. It was somehow apt that the politician who finally let the EU get the constitution it has craved so long should have been President Vaclav Klaus, the veteran anti-Communist who predicted, just before the Czech Republic joined the EU in 2004, that it would mean the end of his country as "an independent sovereign state". And what a delightful irony that Pravda, of all newspapers, greeted the news last week with the headline: 'Twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the EU is now a reincarnation of the Soviet Union'."

Dr. Tim Ball: Historic Review Shows Current Climate Change is Normal

"Current global temperatures are not the highest ever and the rate of change is historically equaled. More important the previous warm periods cannot be due to human CO2 as the IPCC claims for current temperatures. Global warming is not a concern, but that is already partially conceded by the shift to climate change. We’re told that climate changes as if it is a revelation. A review of history shows how much climate changes and that current conditions are not unique. The real revelation is the degree to which people have been misled on the issue. As Heraclites said, 'There is nothing permanent except change.'"

And very little change from Washington.

BETSY MCCAUGHEY: What the Pelosi Health-Care Bill Really Says

"What the government will require you to do:

"• Sec. 202 (p. 91-92) of the bill requires you to enroll in a 'qualified plan.' If you get your insurance at work, your employer will have a 'grace period' to switch you to a 'qualified plan,' meaning a plan designed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. If you buy your own insurance, there's no grace period. You'll have to enroll in a qualified plan as soon as any term in your contract changes, such as the co-pay, deductible or benefit.

"• Sec. 224 (p. 118) provides that 18 months after the bill becomes law, the Secretary of Health and Human Services will decide what a "qualified plan" covers and how much you'll be legally required to pay for it. That's like a banker telling you to sign the loan agreement now, then filling in the interest rate and repayment terms 18 months later.

"On Nov. 2, the Congressional Budget Office estimated what the plans will likely cost. An individual earning $44,000 before taxes who purchases his own insurance will have to pay a $5,300 premium and an estimated $2,000 in out-of-pocket expenses, for a total of $7,300 a year, which is 17% of his pre-tax income. A family earning $102,100 a year before taxes will have to pay a $15,000 premium plus an estimated $5,300 out-of-pocket, for a $20,300 total, or 20% of its pre-tax income. Individuals and families earning less than these amounts will be eligible for subsidies paid directly to their insurer.

"• Sec. 303 (pp. 167-168) makes it clear that, although the 'qualified plan' is not yet designed, it will be of the 'one size fits all' variety. The bill claims to offer choice—basic, enhanced and premium levels—but the benefits are the same. Only the co-pays and deductibles differ. You will have to enroll in the same plan, whether the government is paying for it or you and your employer are footing the bill.

"• Sec. 59b (pp. 297-299) says that when you file your taxes, you must include proof that you are in a qualified plan. If not, you will be fined thousands of dollars. Illegal immigrants are exempt from this requirement.

"• Sec. 412 (p. 272) says that employers must provide a 'qualified plan' for their employees and pay 72.5% of the cost, and a smaller share of family coverage, or incur an 8% payroll tax. Small businesses, with payrolls from $500,000 to $750,000, are fined less.

"Eviscerating Medicare:

"In addition to reducing future Medicare funding by an estimated $500 billion, the bill fundamentally changes how Medicare pays doctors and hospitals, permitting the government to dictate treatment decisions.

"• Sec. 1302 (pp. 672-692) moves Medicare from a fee-for-service payment system, in which patients choose which doctors to see and doctors are paid for each service they provide, toward what's called a 'medical home.'

"The medical home is this decade's version of HMO-restrictions on care. A primary-care provider manages access to costly specialists and diagnostic tests for a flat monthly fee. The bill specifies that patients may have to settle for a nurse practitioner rather than a physician as the primary-care provider. Medical homes begin with demonstration projects, but the HHS secretary is authorized to 'disseminate this approach rapidly on a national basis.'

"A December 2008 Congressional Budget Office report noted that 'medical homes' were likely to resemble the unpopular gatekeepers of 20 years ago if cost control was a priority.

"• Sec. 1114 (pp. 391-393) replaces physicians with physician assistants in overseeing care for hospice patients.

"• Secs. 1158-1160 (pp. 499-520) initiates programs to reduce payments for patient care to what it costs in the lowest cost regions of the country. This will reduce payments for care (and by implication the standard of care) for hospital patients in higher cost areas such as New York and Florida.

"• Sec. 1161 (pp. 520-545) cuts payments to Medicare Advantage plans (used by 20% of seniors). Advantage plans have warned this will result in reductions in optional benefits such as vision and dental care.

"• Sec. 1402 (p. 756) says that the results of comparative effectiveness research conducted by the government will be delivered to doctors electronically to guide their use of 'medical items and services.'

"Questionable Priorities:

"While the bill will slash Medicare funding, it will also direct billions of dollars to numerous inner-city social work and diversity programs with vague standards of accountability.

"• Sec. 399V (p. 1422) provides for grants to community 'entities' with no required qualifications except having 'documented community activity and experience with community healthcare workers' to 'educate, guide, and provide experiential learning opportunities' aimed at drug abuse, poor nutrition, smoking and obesity. 'Each community health worker program receiving funds under the grant will provide services in the cultural context most appropriate for the individual served by the program.'

"These programs will 'enhance the capacity of individuals to utilize health services and health related social services under Federal, State and local programs by assisting individuals in establishing eligibility . . . and in receiving services and other benefits' including transportation and translation services.

"• Sec. 222 (p. 617) provides reimbursement for culturally and linguistically appropriate services. This program will train health-care workers to inform Medicare beneficiaries of their 'right' to have an interpreter at all times and with no co-pays for language services.

"• Secs. 2521 and 2533 (pp. 1379 and 1437) establishes racial and ethnic preferences in awarding grants for training nurses and creating secondary-school health science programs. For example, grants for nursing schools should 'give preference to programs that provide for improving the diversity of new nurse graduates to reflect changes in the demographics of the patient population.' And secondary-school grants should go to schools 'graduating students from disadvantaged backgrounds including racial and ethnic minorities.'

"• Sec. 305 (p. 189) Provides for automatic Medicaid enrollment of newborns who do not otherwise have insurance."

John Mackey: The Whole Foods Alternative to ObamaCare

"Remove the legal obstacles that slow the creation of high-deductible health insurance plans and health savings accounts (HSAs). The combination of high-deductible health insurance and HSAs is one solution that could solve many of our health-care problems. For example, Whole Foods Market pays 100% of the premiums for all our team members who work 30 hours or more per week (about 89% of all team members) for our high-deductible health-insurance plan. We also provide up to $1,800 per year in additional health-care dollars through deposits into employees' Personal Wellness Accounts to spend as they choose on their own health and wellness.

"Money not spent in one year rolls over to the next and grows over time. Our team members therefore spend their own health-care dollars until the annual deductible is covered (about $2,500) and the insurance plan kicks in. This creates incentives to spend the first $2,500 more carefully. Our plan's costs are much lower than typical health insurance, while providing a very high degree of worker satisfaction.

"• Equalize the tax laws so that employer-provided health insurance and individually owned health insurance have the same tax benefits. Now employer health insurance benefits are fully tax deductible, but individual health insurance is not. This is unfair.

"• Repeal all state laws which prevent insurance companies from competing across state lines. We should all have the legal right to purchase health insurance from any insurance company in any state and we should be able use that insurance wherever we live. Health insurance should be portable.

"• Repeal government mandates regarding what insurance companies must cover. These mandates have increased the cost of health insurance by billions of dollars. What is insured and what is not insured should be determined by individual customer preferences and not through special-interest lobbying.

"• Enact tort reform to end the ruinous lawsuits that force doctors to pay insurance costs of hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. These costs are passed back to us through much higher prices for health care.

"• Make costs transparent so that consumers understand what health-care treatments cost. How many people know the total cost of their last doctor's visit and how that total breaks down? What other goods or services do we buy without knowing how much they will cost us?

"• Enact Medicare reform. We need to face up to the actuarial fact that Medicare is heading towards bankruptcy and enact reforms that create greater patient empowerment, choice and responsibility.

"• Finally, revise tax forms to make it easier for individuals to make a voluntary, tax-deductible donation to help the millions of people who have no insurance and aren't covered by Medicare, Medicaid or the State Children's Health Insurance Program."

JOHN M. BRODER: Gore’s Dual Role: Advocate and Investor

"Silver Spring Networks is a foot soldier in the global green energy revolution Mr. Gore hopes to lead. Few people have been as vocal about the urgency of global warming and the need to reinvent the way the world produces and consumes energy. And few have put as much money behind their advocacy as Mr. Gore and are as well positioned to profit from this green transformation, if and when it comes.

"Critics, mostly on the political right and among global warming skeptics, say Mr. Gore is poised to become the world’s first 'carbon billionaire,' profiteering from government policies he supports that would direct billions of dollars to the business ventures he has invested in."

In fact, the word 'health' appears nowhere in the Constitution.

"Well, that’s under certainly the laws of the--protect the health, welfare of the country,' said Burris. 'That’s under the Constitution. We’re not even dealing with any constitutionality here. Should we move in that direction? What does the Constitution say? To provide for the health, welfare and the defense of the country.'"

Michelle Malkin: The Death of Deliberative Democracy

"In 2006, the minority party in Congress issued a dire report on the 'unprecedented erosion of the democratic process.' Democratic Rep. Louise Slaughter, then the ranking member of the House Rules Committee, authored the scathing document. She blasted the majority Republicans' violations of 'procedural fairness,' short-circuiting of debate, and late-night meetings 'to discourage members and the press from participating' in legislative deliberations. My, how history repeats itself.

"Fast-forward to 2009. The Imperial Congress has returned. The oppressed have become the oppressors. Democrats have met the enemy of deliberative democracy, and it is they.

"Three years ago, the Democrats complained of House Republicans rushing through conference reports 'before members could read them.' Sound vaguely familiar? They urged their colleagues in power to 'spend more time on major, substantive legislation' instead of ramming things through. Deja vu, anyone?

"The Slaughter report pleaded for more transparency and public access: 'Regular order should be the rule, not the exception.' Instead of meeting late at night or early in the morning, the Dems called on the majority to operate 'during regular "business" hours so that members and the press can attend and participate.'

"Three years later, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is jamming a 1,900-page health care takeover bill through Congress for a hasty Saturday vote while members of her own party revolt against strong-arm tactics. Upward of 40 pro-life Democrats have objected to the plan's government subsidies for abortion. Majority leaders evaded sunlight by keeping a compromise amendment on the matter out of the version of the bill made available to the public. As of Thursday afternoon (fewer than two days before the scheduled vote), Pelosi had yet to decide whether to permit an abortion ban amendment to her health care bill.

"Pelosi's 'most ethical,' open and transparent House ever ordered Capitol police to block a GOP staffer from attending the public unveiling of the health care reform plan last week. A week before that, Democratic Rep. Edolphus Towns, D-N.Y., locked Republicans out of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee room to prevent them from meeting when Democrats weren't present.

"In June, Pelosi's Imperial Congress severely curtailed debate on the House cap-and-tax bill and rammed a 309-page manager's amendment through the legislative grinder at 3 a.m., which no one read before the vote just hours later. As GOP Rep. Mike Pence pointed out on the House floor, the 'debate' was a 'travesty.' So much for procedural fairness: 224 GOP amendments were denied by the majority.

"In April, the House passed a $3.6 trillion federal budget in the middle of the night with phony fiscal restraint amendments that leaders all admitted would be thrown out during a closed-door conference.

"In February, House and Senate conferees larded up the stimulus bill with pork galore behind closed doors while President Obama denied the existence of earmarks with a straight face. South Carolina Rep. and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn snuck in a provision intended to punish governors who chose to turn down federal stimulus funds. The Democrats broke their high-minded pledge to give Americans 48 hours to read the bill before passage. 'Urgency' demanded it.

"On the Senate side, Majority Leader Harry Reid is playing Harry Houdini with his health care package. After announcing a deal last week and telling the public that he was sending his proposal to the Congressional Budget Office for scoring, there is still no actual bill to review. When 40 Republican senators demanded to see the bill, he played 'you show me yours' and then admitted that, indeed, 'there is no bill to release publicly -- it does not exist.'

"Emitting more vapor than an industrial humidifier, Reid still holds out the possibility of abusing the budget reconciliation process to force the government health care takeover through with a simple majority and limited debate.

"Meanwhile, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., performed an end-run around debate over her massive global warming bill on Thursday by using a 'nuclear option' maneuver on the Senate Environment and Public Works. She and 10 Democrats rammed through the legislation without considering amendments and in defiance of GOP protests."

David Harsanyi: Washington 'Shall' Control Your Healthcare

"In the new world, your insurance choices will be tethered to decisions made by people with Orwellian titles ('1984' was only 268 pages!) like the 'Health Choices Commissioner' or 'Inspector General for the Health Choices Administration.'

"You will, of course, need to be plastered to buy Pelosi's fantastical proposition that 450,000 words of new regulations, rules, mandates, penalties, price controls, taxes and bureaucracy will have the transformative power to 'provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans and reduce the growth in health care spending . . . .'

"It's going to take some time to deconstruct this lengthy masterpiece, but as you flip through the pages of the House bill, you will notice the word 'regulation' appears 181 times. 'Tax' is there 214 times. 'Fees,' 103 times. As we all know, nothing says 'affordability' like higher taxes and fees.

"The word 'shall' - as in 'must' or 'required to' - appears over 3,000 times. The word, alas, is never preceded by the patriotic phrase 'mind our own freaking business.' Not once.

"To vote for the bill, a legislator must believe a $1 trillion price tag is 'revenue neutral,' or that it alleviates any of the pain higher costs bring to the average American. This would require alcohol."

Roger Kimball: What It Means

"David Harsanyi, in an excellent column at RealClearPolitics, provides a partial inventory of diminishment:

> The word 'regulation' appears 181 times.
> 'Tax' is there 214 times.
> 'Fees,' 103 times.

"More regulation. Higher taxes. More fees. Is that what Nancy Pelosi means by 'affordable health care'?"

Victor David Hanson: What If?—Mr. President

"What if the President had said something quite different?—something a little bit more angry like, 'All Americans have had it with these mass murderers, whether formal terrorist plotters or individual assassins. I promise you we will find out what motivates a Major Hasan—and do my best to ensure that there are no more Major Hasans in our future.'"

"Instead of all this, what if the President of the United States had not called for a Saturday night vote on Health care, in which he used the outrage over the Fort Hood horror to win back wavering votes, while slurring his enemies. What if instead he had said something like, 'Let’s have the debate and vote take place in prime afternoon time, to encourage the American people to follow the proceedings. And let us conduct the entire process without calling each other names.'"

"So again, what if, Mr. President, you had instructed Robert Gibbs instead to issue something like the following warning, 'We saw this polarization five years ago with George Bush when he was unfairly demonized by the Left with unmentionable slurs and smears, so let’s not repeat that tawdry chapter in American political history in the present debate.'"

"Instead, what if the President had told his staff, 'I disagree with much of what airs on Fox News, but no one in this administration is going to strong-arm anyone from appearing on it. We believe in freedom of expression and are not about to start blacklisting those who associate with a news organization.'"

"What if instead Barack Obama had said, 'We will try to do our best in government to partner with you. I know that I was not forgotten or ignored, but instead was given all sorts of private, state, and federal financial help to ensure that I could attend the most prestigious prep, undergraduate, and graduate schools in the nation. I want to ensure that all others so qualified get the same wonderful opportunities that I enjoyed.'"
