Translating Obamacare

H/T: Backyard Conservative:

President Obama on Wednesday answered questions on rising costs, taxing benefits, and many other issues during an ABC News special on health care reform, “Questions for the President: Prescription for America.” Cato Institute scholars Michael D. Tanner and Michael F. Cannon respond to Obama’s claims. Learn more about health care reform at Cato.org.

Linky Love Monday

Photo by John Ruberry

Two talented bloggers, John Ruberry of Marathon Pundit and Anne Leary of Backyard Conservative, participated in a Cap & Trade Tea Party outside Mark Kirk’s District Office. They were joined by dozens of like minded patriots expressing their dissatisfaction of his vote to screw over our economy and our environment.

Donald Douglas from American Power chronicles the left’s reaction to the reversal of Supreme Court Justice nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s appellate court decision.

My interest here is to record the reaction on the far left of the spectrum. Clearly, leftist victimology, and continued claims of “accumulated racial disadvantages” and “institutional discrimination,” are driving the discussion on the left.

These two stories are a must read, folks

HGTV Rebuilding Lives One Home at a Time

Today I had the opportunity to celebrate the opening of a renovated home dedicated to homeless veterans in Philadelphia. These individuals now have a place where they can get the help and guidance they need to put their lives back on track. The home is managed by the Pennslvania American Legion Housing For Homeless Veterans Corporation

This day was made possible by HGTV – Change The World Project and Rebuilding Together Philadelphia. A Hero’s Welcome and Warriors Watch organized their membership to attend the opening ceremony.

Photos and additional videos can be found on my FLICKR page


Volunteers who made this day happen:

John Boehner Weekly Address

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today delivered the weekly Republican address. The address comes as unemployment rises while Washington Democrats continue to pursue policies on the economy, health care, energy, and the environment that will destroy more American jobs and drive future generations into deeper debt.


Meanwhile, the Inquirer has dug up Cherly Ann Waddington, owner of Evoluer Image Consultants, who blames her bad business plan on the health care care situation. I don’t think any health care plan can cure a bad business plan.

UPDATE: It seems Cherly has taken an interest in this post. I’m inviting her explain specifically how universal health care as proposed by the Senate and Congress is the link to her business success. She is a talented and creative person, I wish her the best of luck in her business and will post with out edit her response.

Sheepdogs Remember Neda


Donning green wristbands, the Sheepdogs stand in solidarity with the people of Iran.


The former prime minister of Spain, Jose Maria Anzar, reflects on the silence of Western nations in the wake of brutal crackdown in Iran:


The recent elections in Lebanon are a clear example. The progressive normalization of Iraq is another. It would be a shame, particularly in the face of such regional progress, if our passivity gave carte blanche to a tyrannical regime to finish off the dissidents and persist with its revolutionary plans.

Delayed public displays of indignation may be good for internal political consumption. But the consequences of Western inaction have already materialized. Watching videos of innocent Iranians being brutalized, it’s hard to defend silence.

Check out the green wrist bands on the group shot!

As always, our thoughts are with the men and women of the West Chester Stryker Brigade:

Because they lie – the other side – all six of them:

Hope & More of the Same

It was a fateful day back in January when the head of the current administration signed an executive order to close Guantanamo . People who like to dress in orange jumpsuits were ecstatic:

On Friday, the Washington Post reports:

The Obama administration, fearing a battle with Congress that could stall plans to close Guantanamo, has drafted an executive order that would reassert presidential authority to incarcerate terrorism suspects indefinitely, according to three senior government officials with knowledge of White House deliberations

Oh my, will the orange jumpsuit crowd condemn their messiah? Donald Douglas of American Power has this story covered with links and videos

Ahmadinejad to Obama – Apologize

Washington TV:


Ahmadinejad, whose disputed re-election has led to days of protests and unrest throughout Iran, also charged Obama of adopting the rhetoric of his predecessor, George W. Bush. “I hope that you [Obama] will refrain from interfering in Iran’s affairs and express your regret in a way that the Iranian people are informed of it,” Ahmadinejad was quoted by the Fars news agency as saying.

Yep, that Cairo speech by Obama was a blockbuster in Iran. Profuse apology being drafted as I type by the current administration.

Massive Tax Increase Passed House

We are screwed and so is the environment. An unread tax bill is forced on American citizens – again.

In the meantime, the EPA has been found to have actively suppressed information that exposes the EPA’s reliance on unverified data to support its greenhouse gas as a public endangerment issue.

H/T CEI. Unlike your elected democrat representatives – here is your chance to read the censored study

Conservatives are supportive of responsible environmental stewardship that does not require destroying our economy or culture.

Going green is good – right? Forgetting for a moment that there is no empirical evidence to support that ‘going green’ has had a sustained impact on the environment.




Well, going green seems to have a positive effect on China’s economy – one of the countries exempt from Kyoto.
