Congressman John Fleming says....

Our hero of the day: Republican Congressman Dr. John Fleming.
Just when you think the Republic is lost and the socialists will be in power forever, up steps a congressman from Louisiana, Dr. John Fleming, to call the socialists out.
He proposed House Resolution 615, which requires those who vote for Obamacare to live under Obamacare.
Congressman Fleming: "If you vote for the health care plan proposed by the Democrats and President Obama, then enroll in it."

Taking to the House floor, he said: Gradually, the details of the Democrat Health Plan are leaking out to the American people. Call it whatever you like this proposal is nothing more than a government run healthcare plan if it has a government run option.

Interestingly it exempts members of congress from having to join a government run healthcare system. As a physician for many years, I amazed at the number of congressman who have enjoyed high quality personalized healthcare in this country, but are now willing to force post office style medicine on our people. In response to this I have offered a resolution that would give members of congress an opportunity to finally be accountable for the decisions we make and how they affect the lives of ordinary Americans. Most Americans feel that congressmen/women who vote for legislation creating a government run healthcare plan should lead by example and enroll themselves in the same public plan. I agree with them. As a result, I have introduced House Resolution 615 with a number of co-sponsors that simply says that if you vote for a government run healthcare option, you agree to choose government run healthcare for yourself and your family. I encourage members of both parties to vote for this. Thank you.

Crawfords Corner...A Bad Idea!

Taxpayers Prove Inferior to Shareholders With Obama's Build America Bonds
State and local governments, forced to close budget gaps by firing workers and shutting schools, may pay at least $4.2 billion more in interest than companies with similar credit ratings on Barack Obama's Build America Bonds.
The $17.4 billion of Build America Bonds sold since April pay an average yield that's 0.96 percentage point more than corporate
securities with the same ratings, according to data compiled by Bloomberg and based on the 25 largest deals. ``

Taxpayers are taking it on the chin,'' said G. Joseph McLiney, president of Kansas City, Missouri-based McLiney & Co., a firm thatspecializes in selling municipal bonds that qualify for federal tax credits. ``There should be no spread.''

While Build America Bonds opened credit markets to municipalities after the collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., states and citiesare being penalized compared with corporations, which are 90 times more likely to default than local governments, according to Moody's Investors Service.

Your $465 million TARP Money Financed This $101,500 Roadster!


Obama and his bumbling crew gave this company, Tesla, $465 million of YOUR TARP money to makes this ridiculous car (whose auto loans will be financed by another bailed-out TARP recipient, B of A), that nobody wants or can afford.. Do you know of anyone that wants a $101,000 electric sports car?? I don't...
SAN CARLOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 14, 2009--
Tesla Motors announces Roadster financing in the United States by Bank of America, thus significantly expanding the number of customers who can experience the all-electric Roadster.
Bank of America financing makes the Tesla Roadster much more affordable.
For example, a customer approved for a 5-year financing term on a base Roadster could put down as little as $20,000 before taxes and net of the US federal tax credit. The monthly payment would be approximately $1,700 at a 5 percent annual percentage rate (APR).
The actual APR of the loan will be dependent on individual customer credit and history, and neither Bank of America nor Tesla Motors can commit to an APR without a customer completing the loan application process.
That monthly payment is typical for high performance cars -- but Roadster drivers will enjoy hundreds of dollars per month in savings unavailable to gas guzzlers. The Roadster, which gets an estimated 244 miles per charge, costs roughly $4 to refuel and does not require routine oil changes or exhaust system work. Unlike high-maintenance internal combustion engines, Teslas get a 100 percent waiver on sales, luxury and use taxes in at least four states, and they qualify for commuter lane privileges, free parking and free charging in many regions.
Bank of America will directly finance, document and service Tesla vehicle loans for customers, providing a very easy online interface for these services. Financing is available for up to 75 percent of the total vehicle purchase price. Tesla is taking reservations for the sedan, which has an anticipated base price of $49,900 after the tax credit.

An Anti American Protest in Syria....

Most Syrians struggle to even read Arabic, much less have a clue about reading English.
So, how does a group of Syrian protest leaders create the most impact with their signs by having the standard "Death To Americans"(etc.) slogans printed in English?

Answer: They simply hire an English-speaking civilian to translate and write their statements into English. Unfortunately, in this case, they were unaware that the "civilian" insurance company employee hired for the job was a retired US Army Sergeant!
Obviously, pictures of this protest rally never made their way to Arab TV networks, but the results were PRICELESS!

This picture is not doctored.

Obama's Green Jobs Czar says he's a Communist....

Here’s how the East Bay Express described the “Green Jobs Czar’s” background:
Jones had planned to move to Washington, DC, and had already landed a job and an apartment there. But in jail, he said, “I met all these young radical people of color — I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’” Although he already had a plane ticket, he decided to stay in San Francisco. “I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.” In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. “I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th,” he said.
“By August, I was a communist.”
And now he’s a member in good standing of the Obama administration, one of “czars” appointed by Obama who reports only to Obama and who, therefore, never had to withstand the rigors of a senate confirmation process.

If George Bush Would Have.........


If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?
If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?
If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to “Cinco de Cuatro” in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the fourth of May (Cuatro de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?
If George W. Bush had mis-spelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as “proof” of what a dunce he is?
If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on “Earth Day”, would you have concluded he’s a hypocrite?
If George W. Bush’s administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually “get” what happened on 9-11?
If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how he is inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?
If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans , would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?
If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?
This Just In...
If George W. Bush appointed a communist to his administration would you have approved?
So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?
Can't think of anything? Don't worry.
He's done all this in 6 months-- so you'll have a little more than three years to come up with an answer.

CIA Had Secret Al Qaeda Plan


Initiative at Heart of Spat With Congress Examined Ways to Seize, Kill Terror Chiefs

The initiative hadn't become fully operational at the time Mr. Panetta ended it.

What is wrong with this notion?

Socialism Does Not Work!

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class.
That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class based on that concept". All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.
As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.
Could not be any simpler than that.
