John Stossel’s “Sick In America”

This is basically the long version of a piece by John Stossel that I posted earlier.  That posting has been removed by YouTube, and I can’t find it any where else. I suspect the Obama administration will force YouTube to remove this, too, at some point. But, until then, enjoy.

Obama, Apparently, Shuts Down John Stossel Anti-Obamacare Video

I just noticed that my video of John Stossel’s, previously of ABC, has been taken down by YouTube. It states “violation of terms”. Obviously, the Obama administration got to YouTube. This video was posted a few months ago. It was highly critical of Obamacare. It is now “unavailable”. I’ve tried to find another source, but I have not been able to do so. It is painfully obvious that Barack Osama does not want Amerika to know his plans for turning the USA into the USSA (“United Socialist States of Amerika”.)
It is also interesting that many of my other posts, from about that time frame, are no longer available. As the “Church Lady” used to say “It must be Satan”. ER, Barack Osama.

We are doomed!

Your Government at Work. And You Want To Trust Your Health Care To Them?

We’ve all heard of the bird flu. It was going to mutate into a form that could be easily transmitted from person to person, thus killing millions, if not tens of millions, of people. So far (fortunately) that has not happened (although it certainly could). But, last year we were struck with a new flu scare, called swine flu, or H1N1. While most of us call it swine flu, the “government” is very careful to tell us that it is not “swine flu”, it is “H1N1″. Whatever! We all know what we mean. I am not sure why the government does not want us to call it “swine flu”, but I suspect it is related to the fact that people (as mandated by the Egyptian government, for example) have been slaughtering pigs for a while now, in fear that that they could spread the disease. The spread is really not related to pigs, however. It is related to humans. While humans can give the flu to pigs, and pigs can give it to humans, it is rarely transmitted by eating pork from infected pigs, unless it is not adequately cooked.

Anyway, the government announced, in September, that they were on top of the problem. Don’t worry, we will protect you! (“CDC: H1N1 flu vaccine to be ready by early October“) Now, we are told that the flu vaccine will not be available for at least another few weeks. So far, only 15 million doses have been made available. To make matters worse, I have heard that you need two injections to get full immunity. (This may have changed; I’m not sure.) Obviously, the quantity of injections necessary to attain true immunity will not happen before the end of the year, if it even occurs  by then. In the mean time, swine flu infections have skyrocketed. As the graphs show, the rate of infection, and the number of deaths,  in the United States, have risen dramatically in the last few weeks. The reaction of the Obama administration has been to declare a national emergency. What else would you expect? They mismanage a known threat, and then declare a national emergency to deal with their mismanagement. But, it is even more sinister. Once a national emergency is declared, the federal government can do pretty much whatever it wants, to “lessen the effect of the emergency”.



The above graphs were prepared from data reported by FluTracker.

If you have not set up your life in such a way that you can live without leaving your home for at least 12 to 20 weeks, you had better be prepared to live in a government compound of some sort. Perhaps the declaration of a national emergency is the forerunner to Obama activating his “Civilian National Security Force“.   It is possible, maybe likely, that most, if not all, essential services may go away if swine flu really takes off, forcing people to stay home either because they are sick, or they fear getting sick. If that happens, stores will not have food, since there will be few working truckers to deliver it, and power and other essential services may fail, or be highly unreliable, since there will be far fewer people to maintain and service the vital infrastructures. We all saw how well the government cared for  people during hurricane Katrina. The painful fact is that the only, real, purpose of the government is to provide for the defense and safety of the people. But, as we have seen in many natural disasters, including Katrina, the government is not prepared to protect the people, and it has no intention to do so, unless putting everyone in a detention center is the government’s way of “caring”. (You had better believe that it does have plans to protect itself, however.)  If you are not personally prepared to “weather the storm”, by having  enough food and other essentials on hand to stay home for several months, you may be in trouble.

One other interesting aside. I had started to hear that because of the hype of the swine flu, many people were rushing to get their seasonal flu shots. While this might be good, in one way, it is bad in another. I got my seasonal flu shot around the middle of October, and was told that the store would run out of flu seasonal flu shots the following day. While they normally get two allocations of seasonal flu shots, so they can give the shots through February, they are done for the season, and it was only mid October. They cannot get any more seasonal flu shots, because the supplies have run out. Personally, I don’t normally even think about getting a flu shot until November or early December, and I know a lot of other people are like me in that respect. If you have not gotten your seasonal flu shot by now, chances are you will not be able to get one. So, we could end up in a situation where many more people than usual get the seasonal flu, since many people who should have gotten the shot probably did not, since many people who probably were not at high risk got the shot, instead, due to the panic instigated by the government. Thus, clearly the government mismanaged the situation by not anticipating the needed quantity of seasonal flu shots.

Thus, here you have more evidence of government mismanagement. And, taking over health care is, after all, about management. Do you really want an organization that has proven itself, time after time, to be totally incompetent, managing the entire health care system?

We are doomed!

Fascinating Coverage of Obama’s Marxist and Anti-Capitalist Advisors And Reagan’s Warning From The Grave!

These videos from Glenn Beck are fascinating. I knew that Obama was a Marxist, because he basically said so in one of his autobiographies. I read both of them before the election. But, when you look at the radicals that he surrounds himself with, and who he employs to write various bills, and who advise groups and companies on how to get money from the government, it just blows your mind. I need some of that duct tape George Bush told me to buy; my head is about to explode!
During this clip, it is pointed out the Hugo Chavez warned Fidel Castro that after some of Obama’s actions (essentially nationalizing GM), they might end to the right of Obama!

Another part, where it is mentioned that Cass Sunstein states that we should “celebrate tax day”.

And yet more, including an interview with Rush Limbaugh where he speculates that Obama may be destroying the Democratic party, but it is too soon to say for sure. Personally, I think he is. Too many people are now saying “This is not what I voted for!” as the polls demonstrate with his rapidly falling popularity.

And, finally, a speech from 1964 where Ronald Reagan warns us about virtually every thing that Obama is foisting on the country in terms of high taxation, large government, socialism, and communism. One of the best lines in the speech (and there are many of them) is Reagan’s quoting of Senator Clarke of Pennsylvania “(Clarke) defines liberalism as meeting the material needs of the masses through the full power of centralized government”. Reagan’s response: “Well, I, for one, resent it when a representative of the people refers to you and me, the free men and women of this country, as the masses. This is a term we haven’t applied to ourselves in America. But, beyond that, the full power of centralized government! This was the very thing the founding fathers sought to minimize. They knew that governments don’t control things. The government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they know when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve it’s purpose. They also knew, those founding fathers, that outside of it’s legitimate functions, government does nothing as well, or as economically, as the private sector of the economy.” He then goes on with examples. An incredible warning from the grave.
As a personal afterthought. How much better our nation would have fared if Barry Goldwater had been elected as President of the United States, rather than Lyndon Johnson, in 1964! It can be argued that Johnson’s presidency was the socialist camel’s nose under the tent, unfortunately.

Obama Says To See What He Believes, See Who He Surrounds Himself With…Communists, Marsists, One World Governmentistas

Well, Obama said it himself during his campaign. He said that in order to see what he believes, you have to look at who he surrounds himself with for advice. He mentions Paul Volker, General Jones, Warren Buffet. But, now that he is in office, who has his ear? Radical environmentalists, self proclaimed Communists and Marxists, and people who favor a “one world government.” Just think of the implications of that! Something like the UN (arguably one of the most corrupt and corrupted organizations in the world), running the world. See it all. Incredible stuff.

The National Debt Road Trip

A great little video that explains the national debt in a way that almost anyone can understand.
