Pretty (in pink) Damning

I came across this piece by Cal Thomas via a link on Betsy's Page. The column deals with papers from Hillary's health care task force secured by Judicial Watch only after a law suit.

Of particular interest is a document by somebody with the initials "P.S." titled, “A Critique of Our Plan". The document contains an admission that critics of the plan were right and that the plan might not even be workable and that there was no precedent for such a government takeover of such a large segment of the economy during peace time.

Now you may be asking yourself why the news media hasn't been all over this. Well, there is a memorandum by Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) that might contain a few hints. After criticizing the task force as being, "“secret cabal of Washington policy ‘wonks’” that has engaged in “choking off information” from the public regarding health care reform." the memo goes on to suggest that Hillary use “use classic opposition research" to “expose lifestyles, tactics and motives of lobbyists” (read: or any other critic for that matter). The Junior Senator from West virginia goes on to advise that news organizations were "...anxious and willing to receive guidance [from the Clinton Administration] on how to time and shape their [news] coverage."

Now you know why the MSM is not all over this.

What the Hell is Wrong with SC Republicans?

Do we have such short memories that we would select John McCain in the primary? We boast of our conservatism and vote for a man who shredded the First Ammendment. We talk of boarder security and vote for a man who crafted an amnesty bill that could have been written by La Raza.
The only thing I can figure is that there were a lot of Dems taking advantage of the state's open primaries. Maybe it's time SC started partisan registration. This certainly makes a case. Then again, that won't stop RINOs from voting for RINOs.

Okay, Ronulans, You got your %$@# 31 Votes.

Now leaveJennifer Call alone! Quit calling her at home. Quit making threats.
Ron Paul, this is your doing. This is what America will become if you are elected. A country run by thugs who try to intimidate and threaten those who disagree with them, or have some grievance, real or imagined.
There was no fraud in Sutton, NH. You got 31 out of 920 votes cast. Enjoy your victory.

On the Second Day of Christmas a Drunk Driver brought to me...

...pain! As we were coming home from work a drunk driver ran a stop sign and broadsided us. Looking at the wreckage later I don't know how either of us survived that. When the wrecker yard attendant asked if that was it I responded, "It could be"
I came away with cuts and bruises on my legs and a real nasty abdominal bruise from the seatbelt. My wife, however, got her left leg broken in three places. Her left hand is broken and she was almost scalped. Yes, our lawyer expects to get something in the settlement, but that's not even in the foreseeable future right now.
We will be at half-income for some months, so feel free to use the donation button on the left as i ain't in a position to be proud right now.
