President Obama and the Congress are racing toward government-run and government-mandated healthcare. If they succeed, YOU no longer will be able to keep your insurance, choose your own doctors or control your own health and well being. You will be forced into a government-mandated healthcare system run by…Continue

David Walker is a forner head of the GAO and Controller-General of the USA, whose warnings and advice were pretty much ignored. Looks like he was right. Now, will they listen?Continue

This was performed on the original bill, HR 3200, but most principles are the same on the final one. Please spread this far and wide.
I can guarantee you that we haven't heard the last of this. The battle has just started and will be waged in DC and the…Continue

This apparently pro-Obamacare analyisis, by Skadden, Arps, Sleate, Meagher & Flom, LLP, focuses more on benefits and timetable and doesn't list the literally hundreds of objectionable terms in the bill., Note in particular the timetable, on page 13.…Continue
Now that this Constitutional obscenity has been illegally passed by an unrepresentative Congress in violation of its own rules and signed into law by a "President," what happens?
Well, making calls to your Congress-critter is like locking the barn door after the horse leaves, not that doing it beforehand made much of a difference.
Three things to be done:
- Support candidates who will help us change this-- not only in November,…Continue

It would be good if you would contribute some reader comments to the article, which provided some excellent information to the public about the Tea Party movement and local activities:

"President" Barack Hussein Obama said Saturday, as he waited until Congress went on recess to make.... 15 recess appointments, to bypass the Senate. Some of the candidates had bipartisan opposition. Is this what "Advise and Consent" is all about folks? I don't think so.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Saturday that Obama's move is "another episode of choosing a partisan path despite bipartisan…Continue
I am watching Sarah's speech live as I write this. The scene is jammed with people. There was a miles long backup of cars waiting.
Sarah is barely hanging on to the pages of her speech in the strong desert winds in Searchlight NV. A page actually blew away-- I hope it was the one with the McCain (McLame) endorsement on it!
No teleprompter, but she has handwritten notes-- actually…Continue

I handed out April 15 Ventura Tax Day Tea Party flyers at the big boaters' swap meet in Channel Islands Harbor today.
Channel Islands Harbor
The bad news is that about 25% of the people refused them. I would have thought that boaters would be a solid potential Tea Party consitutency. But, the good news is that 75% took them very enthusiastically. Some even thanked me for…Continue

Warning: some offensive languge in here, but for good reason. There are accusations made against Tea Party members-- no specific members and no substantiation. There is a highly inflammatory headline on one of the McClatchy websites, with no supporting evidence. While it is conceivable that…Continue

I remember a ballad popular in the late 50's or early 60's-- "16 Tons," about a coal miner with a hard dirty, low-paying job, with little hope, getting deeper and deeper in debt and misery.

I doubt if this will stop it, but the GOP is forcing Dem's to jump through hoops.
Hmm, still catching up on emails, after being out distributing Tea Party flyers and going to a GOP meeting. So, hotheads are threatening Dem "lawmakers," huh? As much as I condemn violence, or even threats of violence, the Dem legislators' indignation and trembling fear make me smile. Admit it- you feel the same way, right?…
