Manditory Health Care, Federal or State controlled?

This Health Care debating has brought to some light, though not enough, that of the 46 million without Health Insurance, the majority are young and not in need of health care more then other budget items in their family cashflow.  The argument is that when the young get older, they will jump into a plan or abuse the everyone is treated at the emergency room blessing. 
Thus the Democrats at the Federal level think it wise to create a system to bring these youngsters on line by making a mandatory tax to bring down the premium cost of the elderly.  This thought has merit, for having someone cover your needs rather then doing your part is not what made this Country great.  The Bible calls freeloaders imbeciles.  Change the tax structure to FairTax to create jobs so people can afford insurance.
The mandatory demand of everyone to pay a healthcare premium is not Constitutional at the federal level, but it is in most of the States at their option.  While thinking about it, why not set up mandatory, by State power, HSA's which would eventually replace Social Security and Medicare by increasing the savings of individuals at a local community bank, thus expanding the cashflow for communities and removing it from the thieves in Washington and the State Capitals.
As to the Health Care Bill in 2009, it will end worse then social security and will make our economic system grind to a halt making us like the Soviet Empire prior to their collapse.  Even Putan warned us of our heading for socialism as did most of Europe who is trying to figure a way out from under the oppression of socialism.  Once you submit to socialism in Healthcare, the return to Freedom will be near impossible, not without what Thomas Jefferson said of Liberty.

Pete Hoekstra draws attention on terrorism & here is why it's good

Pete Hoekstra draws attention

In case you're wondering what one of our gubernatorial candidates has been up to lately, here's an update from the Washington Monthly blog.

That House Republicans made him the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee is embarrassing. That Hoekstra intends to be the chief executive of a state is almost comical...
my comment:
On the question of Pete Hoekstra being Governor of Michigan, he is one worthy of such a position.  His mission when going to Washington was to end the unconstitutional spending of Federal dollars on an unconstitutional power, the funding of education.  Pete ran right into President Bush's chumming up with Ted Kennedy for Big Gov spending, funding Education Federally.  Have not decided who to pick from the GOP ranks yet, but if one pops up supporting the FairTax Plan, they have gotten my attention.
As to the gallantry of Congressman Hoekstra on doing his duty as the Intelligence Chairman for the Minority in the Senate, protecting the American people is the main concern.  The threat of Muslim extremists are world wide, to include the USA.  If our Government is going to ignore the warning signs of extremism, be it far left or far right, we need to know.  Why?  We have the right to defend and if we are led to believe we are, when we are not protected by our Government, then all hell will break loose. 
What does need to guarded for is a propaganda campaign that will cover a rising force of extremism and no provisions established to counter it.  Heads in the sand gives you darkness.  Thank you Pete for bringing attention to our need to better care for our safety within the Homeland Security now managed by a Muslim who used to be Deputy Mayor of L.A..

If George Bush were an idiot...


Subject: If George Bush were an idiot...


              If George Bush were an idiot...
                    If George W.  Bush had been the first President
to need a  teleprompter installed to be able to get through a  press
conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how
inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind
the scenes?
                    If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands
of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC,would you have
                    If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement
plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority
stake in GM, would you have approved?  
                    If George W.  Bush had made a joke at the expense
of the20 Special Olympics, would you have approved?
                    If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of
inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had
given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you
have approved?
                    If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England
an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought
this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?
                    If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi
Arabia , would you have approved?
                    If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made
reference to the "Austrian language", would you have brushed it off
as a minor slip?
                    If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and
circle of advisers 20 with people who cannot seem to keep current in
their income  taxes, would you have approved?
                    If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate
as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador
when it  was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it
when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?
                    If George W.  Bush had misspelled the word
"advice" would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle
and potatoe as proof of what a dunce he is?
                    If George W.  Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of
jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have
concluded he's a hypocrite?
                    If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air
Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet
fighter in  downtown Manhattan , causing widespread panic, would you
have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?  
                    If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid
to flood victims  throughout the Midwest with more people killed or
made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a
major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and
                    If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the
CEO  of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional
authority to do so, would you have approved?
                    If George W. Bush had proposed to double the
national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate,
in one year, would you have approved?
                    If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the
debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?
                    So, tell me again: what is it about Obama that
makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't
worry. He's done all this in 9 months -- so you'll have three years
and three months to come up with an answer.  (And he already has
a book released about his first year in office.)jft

Is George Sorros upset, causing fiscal destruction for naught?

NEW YORK – Twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of communism, the world is facing another stark choice between two fundamentally different forms of organization: international capitalism and state capitalism. The former, represented by the United States, has broken down, and the latter, represented by China, is on the rise. Following the path of least resistance will lead to the gradual disintegration of the international financial system. A new multilateral system based on sounder principles must be invented.

While international cooperation on regulatory reform is difficult to achieve on a piecemeal basis, it may be attainable in a grand bargain that rearranges the entire financial order. A new Bretton Woods conference, like the one that established the post-WWII international financial architecture, is needed to establish new international rules, including treatment of financial institutions that are too big to fail and the role of capital controls. It would also have to reconstitute the International Monetary Fund to reflect better the prevailing pecking order among states and to revise its methods of operation. 

In addition, a new Bretton Woods would have to reform the currency system. The post-war order, which made the US more equal than others, produced dangerous imbalances. The dollar no longer enjoys the trust and confidence that it once did, yet no other currency can take its place.

The US ought not to shy away from wider use of IMF Special Drawing Rights. Because SDRs are denominated in several national currencies, no single currency would enjoy an unfair advantage.

The range of currencies included in the SDRs would have to be widened, and some of the newly added currencies, including the renminbi, may not be fully convertible.  This would, however, allow the international community to press China to abandon its exchange-rate peg to the dollar and would be the best way to reduce international imbalances. And the dollar could still remain the preferred reserve currency, provided it is prudently managed.

One great advantage of SDRs is that they permit the international creation of money, which is particularly useful at times like the present. The money could be directed to where it is most needed, unlike what is happening currently. A mechanism that allows rich countries that don't need additional reserves to transfer their allocations to those that do is readily available, using the IMF's gold reserves.

Reorganizing the world order will need to extend beyond the financial system and involve the United Nations, especially membership of the Security Council. That process needs to be initiated by the US, but China and other developing countries ought to participate as equals. They are reluctant members of the Bretton Woods institutions, which are dominated by countries that are no longer dominant. The rising powers must be present at the creation of this new system in order to ensure that they will be active supporters.

The system cannot survive in its present form, and the US has more to lose by not being in the forefront of reforming it. The US is still in a position to lead the world, but, without far-sighted leadership, its relative position is likely to continue to erode. It can no longer impose its will on others, as George W. Bush's administration sought to do, but it could lead a cooperative effort to involve both the developed and the developing world, thereby reestablishing American leadership in an acceptable form.

The alternative is frightening, because a declining superpower losing both political and economic dominance but still preserving military supremacy is a dangerous mix. We used to be reassured by the generalization that democratic countries seek peace. After the Bush presidency, that rule no longer holds, if it ever did.

In fact, democracy is in deep trouble in America. The financial crisis has inflicted hardship on a population that does not like to face harsh reality. President Barack Obama has deployed the "confidence multiplier" and claims to have contained the recession. But if there is a "double dip" recession, Americans will become susceptible to all kinds of fear mongering and populist demagogy....

...China's leadership needs to be even more far-sighted than Obama is. China is replacing the American consumer as the motor of the world economy.  Since it is a smaller motor, the world economy will grow slower, but China's influence will rise very fast.

For the time being, the Chinese public is willing to subordinate its individual freedom to political stability and economic advancement. But that may not continue indefinitely – and the rest of the world will never subordinate its freedom to the prosperity of the Chinese state.

As China becomes a world leader, it must transform itself into a more open society that the rest of the world is willing to accept as a world leader.  Military power relations being what they are, China has no alternative to peaceful, harmonious development.  Indeed, the future of the world depends on it.


This man needs to be investigated for manipulating the world economy, for destructive conduct to destroy the U.S. Constitution in order to put in place his own creation, his new Constitution based on communism dictatorship. 

Soros is upset with Obama for not doing as he wishes and now he is worried China will fill the gap he planned for himself.  Is that true?  From how Soros nas acted in the past, it sure appears so.
