Video Monday: Takei and Hobby Lobby

I bookmarked these two video over the weekend. The first is a TED talk from George Takei. While I’m not fond of TED talks — they often cross me as smug and overly confident in their points — this one explains why George Takei still loves the country that interred him during the war:

After healthcare, your savings, food, and security

I guess the best way to get everyone to want to keep around a failing government run Ponzi scheme, is to make any other kind of investment vehicle unattractive. Qeueue the idea that 401Ks should be taxed pre use. Not to mention that once government can raid them through taxes, they also find ways to justify doing what Europeans are talking about or doing to their private investment retirement vehicles – nationalizing these investment … Read more

Stimulus update

If it costs, on average and pulling it off the top of my head, over $600K per job created by the stimuluspatronage bill, then I guess nobody should be surprised that it also cost us tax payers $205,075 to ‘Translocate’ One Shrub from Path of Stimulus Project in glorious People’s Republic of San Fran, where Queen Pelosi reigns supreme:

(CNSNews.com) — The government spent at least $205,075 in 2010 to “translocate” a single

My Belly and Me

So, yeah, the last few days have been somewhat eventful. My gallbladder attacked me and I had to have a laparoscopic cholecystectomy to get it out. I’m home now, under 24 hours after the procedure, recovering nicely and perusing the last few days of Google Reader to see how stupid the Left has been while I was out (answer: very).

Just one thought I’d like to share:

And the more I think about it,

Obama economy made me do it!

This story is just too crazy to make up. here are the details.

COLUMBUS, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) — A former Columbus police officer admitted in court that he robbed a bank last year so he can get health benefits being in a federal prison. Edward Pascucci told U.S. District Court Judge Clay D. Land Thursday that he was facing “severe health problems” and homelessness when he decided to rob the Citizens Trust Bank last August,

Government run Healthcare genius.

I am not at all surprised to find that the people that so love and want government controlled healthcare – because of those evil profit making insurance companies and their callous ways – would think this refusal to be genius and just:

A man from Nyköping in eastern Sweden has been denied a power wheelchair despite having had both of his legs amputated as the local health authority remained “uncertain if the impairment was

Funny how the left wants “less democracy” when they are in power, huh?

Peter Orszag, one of those evil Wall Street types – he is Vice Chairman of Citigroup, one of the left’s biggest money bag operations -that once was the 37th director of the Office of Management and Budget, under President Barack Obama, has an article out in the New Republic where he is lamenting the evils of democracy, and all out pining for the bureaucratic aristocracy class to simply ignore the process and do what … Read more

Preparing the battlepace for Obamacare

That’s what your tax dollars are doing over at NPR, where they spent 4 minutes talking about how evil the conservative judges on the SCOTUS were while ignoring the one with most strikes against them: Obama’s appointee Kagan.

Have no doubt that this is the left preparing the battle space for the Obamacare fight. The constitution is toilet paper to these people. Big government the only answer. And what a way to gain real … Read more

It’s not my bad priorities, lack of understanding about economics, stupid beliefs, or incompetence: it’s bad luck!

That’s what Obama told people on the campaign trial when discussing the horrible economy we are straddled with under his presidency. So, if you will follow along here, and allow me to set this up with some facts, I will put some perspective on this claim. First off, according to Obama and the left’s reckoning, the economy went south because of evil Boosh. W’s his tax cuts for the rich and his wars to … Read more

Some more perspective

One of the arguments that the left pushes in their quest to make government control and run healthcare is that evil for profit corporations in the insurance industry screw people over. Of course, knowing how inefficient and ineffective government is at anything it undertakes due to my interactions with it, I am usually flabbergasted that they feel government will do a better job. Seriously, when the “social justice”, “war on poverty” big government can’t do Read more
