Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

Told Ya So! Public Option Still Alive...

It looks like the trial balloon has popped! The administration had floated the idea that a public "option" was not the essential element of the bill. At the same time, they focus-group tested the word "co-op" instead, which I discussed is just code for government run.

As predicted, the wacko left in the Congress and activist groups were hooting and hollering about it and said that if there is no public "option" then there would be no bill. Folks remember, this is the MOTHER of all socialist projects and I take them at their word that they must have it!

Now the next trial balloon being floated from the Dems is that they may be willing to "go it alone" on passing this bill--without Republican help. I say GOOD, let them do it! They don't need the votes and if they think it is such a good idea, there wouldn't be any discussion with the right, they would have passed it back in July and been done with it.

The dirty little secret is that they want Republican support so when it blows up in our faces, they can say "hey you can't just blame us, the Republicans voted for it too!" So my advice to the Republicans is DO NOT cut any deals! Listen to the vast majority of the American people who are telling you not to pass this. Stick together and fight for true free market healthcare reform and you will win big in 2010! Cut deals and you will be the minority for a generation to come...


  1. Just read an article on about a blogger being revealed and losing her job...r u worried about this and about other bloggers to keep their identiyt secret?

  2. Not at all worried. Why would I be? That would be tantamount to intimidation and retaliation and if my employer tried to fire me over that I would slap a First Amendment lawsuit on them so fast their head would spin!

  3. P.S.--- Why are you watching CNN in the first place? Yikes!

  4. I do not watch CNN. I watch MSNBC! I read articles on What is wrong with CNN?!

  5. MSNBC?? That's even worse!

    The same MSNBC who has a host that gets "thrills down his leg" everytime Obama speaks?

    The same MSNBC that has a guy who not only is a sportscaster failure but is grossly unqualified to be a "news" anchor and hates anyone who is not an elitist left wing liberal like he is?

    The same MSNBC who has a little-boy looking American hating lesbian from a failed liberal talk radio network?

    The same MSNBC who is 200% in the tank for Barack Obama and his agenda and masquerades as an unbiased news channel?

    The same MSNBC that is owned by General Electric-who sells weaponry and military technology to the Iranians so they can use it to kill American soldiers in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East?

    The same GE that stands to make BILLIONS on the Obama healthcare plan by securing the contract for the massive government maintained medical records that Obama wants? You mean the GE that will totally violate personal privacy laws and allow government bureaucrats to have full access to anyone’s medical records? And therefore the same GE that is on a full court press for this plan and everything else Obama supports as a corporate fascist? Oh but I am sure they will protect our information and use it only for benevolent purposes--like telling you how to live, eat, etc--because we are just to dumb to possibly live without guidance from Master Obama and Queen Pelosi.

    You mean that MSNBC?

    And I suppose the articles you read are from the Daily Kos, The Huffington Post, Media Matters,, and the like?
    How about watching real balanced news like Fox and reading documents like the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, The Federalist Papers, and others so that you know what your government is REALLY supposed to be doing?

    CNN, forget it---totally waste of my time to even explain it to you. You just suck up all that liberal big government, nanny state BS they pass off as news and make sure you call Obama when you need help wiping your nose.
