Obama: HMMMMMM where can we put the prisoners from Gitmo, can’t keep them there in Cuba off American soil, I said I would close it, dang I can’t keep my promise of shutting it down in one year, let’s seeeee hey how about in our backyard, Illinois, that way we can funnel billions to our home state, whachaaaa think Rham, David?

A fools folly is taking place and that fool is the American tax payer, Obama’s latest fastball in moving the Gitmo “war criminals” to sovereign soil is untenable. Hey lets just send them to Miami, it is closer and the weather is better, that will help with heating bills!

Yet another transparent policy by the Big O, move em and shovel money to our cronies, we are counting the days Mr. President, maybe with your spare time after 2012, you can write your own book!

MICHELLE MALKIN   Obama brings Gitomolympics home!

Dear President Obama,

My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.

So here goes.

I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.

I can’t figure out what country you are the president of. You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
· “We’re no longer a Christian nation”
· “America is arrogant” – (Your wife even announced to the world,”America is mean-spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)

I’d say shame on the both of you but I don’t think you like America nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.” Which ones did you mean?

1. Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British ?
2. Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War ?

1. I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers,husbands,and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII,because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around because we stand for freedom.

4. I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

Take a little advice from a very old geezer,young man. Shape up and start acting like an American.If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue .You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts who was putting up a fight ? You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are,terrorists.

One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now,son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.

You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.

You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now. And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.

Sincerely,
Harold B. Estes

I was starting to write a post on health care and came across numerous blogs and posts on the issue. The major misconception I held was that the health care industry was highly profitable given all the rhetoric, and that competition was a major factor!

The information shows first that the health care industry as a whole shows a very minimal profit margin, 3-7% pre-tax!!! So these companies that are being demonized by Obama as profit whores, clearly does not hold water when the numbers are reviewed.

Second, competition, this does seem to be an issue, without the ability to cross state lines to offer health insurance, this basically means you have 50 independent providers without competition, ultimately the end result of opening up the state lines would increase competition, but further erode the minimal profits these companies now hold, in effect making the game not worth playing!!

The ultimate issue with health care is cost of the provided services, (my bill for 23 hours in the hospital $12366), the general consensus and vague at best is liability!!! So although Tort Reform has been dismissed (due to the powerful trial lawyers lobby) this still appears the best resource to reduce costs. The administration and detractors of the general health care issue, is dealing with the scab and not the reason for the disease!! Otherwise why would a pill I generally pay $10.00 for 100, cost me $25.00 for one dose??

When a business has a tight margin for profit, they are required to generate income in other areas to offset expense, this is basic business. Due to the high cost of liability insurance and rampant law suits along with doctors providing defensive medicine due to the fear of making a mistake this cost has been padded into every nook and cranny of the process.

It would seem that a focus on reducing health care focused on the drivers of the out of control costs, (liability and malpractice insurance) would be a pragmatic point of consensus. The last thing we need is having the government enter into this fray, since it is abundantly obvious they are the last business to look to in producing a product at a profit!!!

obama-cry-415x351

Now that our government is back to work, an oxymoron of the highest platitude, our nation anxiously awaits direction on the health care debate. Over the last month the voice of the people was surely heard, daily townhall meetings clearly expressed the opinion that most of the nation is not interested in President Obama’s often edited proposed health care plan, and most divisive, the public option. Also clear is the fact that there is no health care plan just a series of thoughts not so succinctly put forth to test the boundaries of just how far the Obama team can extend its tentacles into the hearts, minds and purses of its constituency. Now that the mud slinging, threats, and adjective abuse has come to an impasse we now look to Obama for leadership, will we see the brilliant orator/actor that mesmerized the disenchanted, or the foreboding truth that Obama is nothing more than a hollow messenger of the liberal left?

Evidence of the latter is abundantly apparent, where in the past the presidents skill at delivering a rousing speech to rally a cause proved dramatically successful, his efforts are now worn thin. The charm offensive: “A publicity campaign, usually by politicians, that attempts to attract supporters by emphasizing their charisma or trustworthiness” is not sufficient enough to carry the platform, the people are demanding “facta non verba”, Mr. President, action not words.

The irony of truth is we as a nation do need health care reform, that is the binding thread we all can agree on, where this process has been derailed is the two divisive paths to that goal. Neither plan or I should say any plan issued to date has not addressed the one simple baseline need, what is best for the people! The current administration believes a public option, or in other words further intrusion of the government into the lives and pockets of the masses is the the only way to achieve a workable plan, where as the opposing dictum for all intent and purpose shields the large corporate health care providers and diminishes competition. So in retrospect, no substantive options have come to the table by either party.

Obama has lost the “crisis effect” and a great deal of political capital due to his handlers inability to send a clear message. The modus operandi of this administration that was so successful in passing the non stimulus stimulus was the call for urgency, we must do this now or else! That strategy is shallow in that the democratic health care plan was not to take effect until 2013? The first rhetorical question, “what is the rush”, second being, if this is so urgent why wait until after 2013 to deliver on the promise? It become apparent when you answer those two questions that what we are witnessing from the Obama administration is more focused on ideology and party survival than need.

Many promises were made by the Obama handlers, the first payback was the stimulus plan, of which by best estimates will not be fully funded until 2011, and has not made one iota of difference in our economic conundrum, the second plank of the Obama platform was to offer government run health care. The nation was drunk with change when the stimulus was rammed though both the house and senate in 48 hours out of perceived need, and a full blown cram down was attempted to pass health care prior to the government recess, thankfully enough resistance quelled that attempt.

So here we are, no further along, more confused, political pandering rampant, poll numbers tanking, accountability demanded, accusations abound, facts becoming clearer as to general direction, and the answer from the Obama administration, “let him charm them”. Tonight’s speech is being labeled as a last ditch attempt to salvage any creditability of our Presidents leadership qualities, gone is the blind acceptance of change for change’s sake. Time for the rubber to meet the road, a political reboot so to speak. I do hope the President does not continue to insult the intelligence of the American public with shallow promises, radical ideals so far left they are laughable, and begin to lead the nation to some modicum of truth that he does have the peoples interests at heart. So far all that has gone before appears to be payback Chicago style to those who helped him gain the office of President. We are waiting Mr. President, and not so patiently for you to show us all you are more than an empty suit enamored with your own image.

The Fourth Estate commonly know as the press and has been also labeled “The Fourth Branch of Government” wields an ungodly amount of power in the shaping of the minds of its audience. The rise of power has been a slow but steady growth to the bastardized animal we now witness at the gate. The initial storyline for this post was going to be focused on which division of the Fourth Estate put forth the most truth in an unbiased method. To my dismay and wasted hours of research, a truly unbiased source could not be found, it appears that most if not all media in a quest to garner readership pander to either a financial motive or and ideological ilk. My focus was on American media outlets, and the closest in “my” uneducated determination to offering (to steal a tag line) fair and balances source was no other than the Druge Report, that’s right the once lowly scourge of the internet now offers all views for the taking. Kudos to Matt Druge for creating first a grassroots blog basically to a full blown media outlet that has earned respect the hard way, by being first with breaking news! It is not my intent to be a cheerleader for The Druge Report, just recognize that out of all the major media outlets The Druge report lets you choose who you the individual values as unbiased.

dont think propaganda

The major players in the daily media onslaught are in no particular order, Fox New, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, FOX, AP, Reuiters, and a litany of internet, newspaper, blog and online journalism, the major issue with all these sources is that they are all fighting for the same slice of the pie, and in there quest to have that pie and eat it too, the standards of journalism are mortally tested and ignored on a minute by minute basis. The once lofty “canons of journalism” of truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, IMPARTIALITY, fairness and public accountability are barely existent in the race for the prize, ratings and viewership. The motive you ask, advertising dollars!!! Where in times past the craft of the story negated any fear of reprisal from the editor out of fear the “angle” or the byline would alienate any financial relationship with the client, now we have a willy nilly pandering to the food source of the beast, the advertisers. So it seems like everything else in our world the dollar is the almighty factor in the equation to the “spin” of the tome.

Watching

The once stoic news reader of the past has been replaced with shock journalism, catchy tease promos, inflated tidbits of minutia that 30 years ago would be relegated to the gossip pages are now headlines. Flashy promos by local news proposing that “we are on your side” or “where you get your news first” are all created to bombard the general public with sensationalism of mostly droll material. Palatable in small doses but annoying none the less and mostly harmless. The major quest for the hearts and minds of the common man is now playing out in the political pundit arena where biased news can do major damage in the shaping of the mind and blind acceptance of any substantial truth can be life altering. This paradigm of propaganda comes at such a crucial time in the development of our collective futures, it makes total common sense to stop and reflect on this very pragmatic rhetorical question, “What is the motive”? I see individuals online, in the news media, TV, and radio spouting and regurgitating so called facts that are so biased, so far from the reality of morals and basic truth without hesitation expecting the general public to buy into there perception of truth as fact. This acceptance without reason will be the downfall of man. The old adage “don’t believe everything you read” now has to be expanded to all the sources of media we are faced with deciphering in our individual search for personal truth.

0031-INDIAN

Rampant laziness is the primary reason, we want our news in quick bites, we do not want to think, we want to be told, we don’t want to understand we want to be understood, conversations are now based on “beating” the other person with more so called facts that the opponent might have in there quiver of arrows. The two sides to any discussion is now my side and your side is stupid and uninformed, the meek are emboldened to be lions when in a ideological circle of like minded spewers of rhetoric, all this at the loss of the intellect based on contemplation. It was said the American Indian had few words in there communication to the “white man”, this is because the American Indian had a rule when they discussed serious issues, and that was they never spoke until the speaker was done. Rather than thinking of a defense to what was being said they sought to understand what was being said. I bring this up for the following reason, next time you are in a conversation with someone heated or not, don’t think what you are going to say, but try to understand what the person is saying, when they are done, never interrupt, then you say your peace. This is called contemplation and listening, a lost art that our mass media and politicians have lost site of. Our great orator currently could take a lesson from the American Indian, and stop selling and start doing.
