A discussion of socialism

How can anyone not know that free stuff isn't really free? The question is do you have control over how much you pay and what you get or does some bureaucrat determine those factors? Central planning doesn't work. Who is trying to move into North Korea? Government dictating prices, payments and services offered by doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes is not good. It wouldn't be any better at the college level. Why would we want to turn our collegiate system into the wonderfully ineffective and inferior system of a public high school? The first semester and often the first term at most public colleges for a large percentage of students is bridging them from high school. Most people no longer graduate in 4 years partially due to this fact. Free is expensive in that either the quality will go down as it becomes almost universal or the cost will go up to accommodate those who are Read more

CARPER Won’t Read Text of Health Bill

Delaware's very own senior U.S. Senator Tom Carper admits that he has no intention of reading the actual legislative text of the upcoming Health Care Bill. Carper calls legislative language gibberish and states that he can't comprehend this type of language. Carper also "questioned whether anybody could read the actual legislative text and credibly claim to have understood it." Gosh, obviously there is no one in the U.S. who can understand what the bills in Congress mean when they are passed.   After all, if a guy like Carper who has been a politician since the 70's can't understand bills in legislative language, how can little folks like us have a chance??? Sen. John Cornyn points out why the actual bill itself needs to be read and not just some synopsis prepared by Senate staff. According to Cornyn " The descriptive language the committee is working with is not good enough because Read more

Be a Snitch for Obama!!!!

The White House wants information on opposition to the Obamacare proposals. Obama is losing despite having the news media in his back pocket. The New media is getting the actual language of the proposed legislation and doing some great analysis proving that Obama's statements are pure B.S.. So to counter the Democratic movement of going around the main stream media, the Obama White House wants information on who and how some folks are spreading the truth about the Obama plan. This is from the White House website: "There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web Read more

The Congressman Castle Kent County Listening Session

Today I attended Rep. Mike Castle’s health care listening session in Kent County. This is a compilation of some of my notes from that meeting. It was hosted at Del Tech Terry Campus in a mid-sized room which was overflowing. Approximately 160 people attended, and many had to stand. Representative Castle brought with him a panel of several experts on different aspects of the health care debate. A representative from the Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce (CDCC), a private practice doctor, the president of Bayhealth in Dover, a member of Delaware Hospice, someone from the nursing department at Del Tech, and others. One notable absence is that no one from the insurance industry was present. I am not sure why. First Rep. Castle and the panelist presented their ideas then the floor was opened up for public comments. I will give Representative Castle credit for setting up these meetings. Read more
