Rep. Georgia Democrat Hank Johnson is worried about Guam Tipping over. One wonders what the people of Georgia were thinking electing someone with an IQ equal to his shoe size.
It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while. – James Lovelock, well-know environmentalist
Thanks, James, but no thanks. We’ll keep our freedom, you can keep the control. But Lovelock is correct when he states that:
Fudging the data in any way whatsoever is quite literally a sin against the holy ghost of science,. I’m not religious, but I put it that way because I feel so strongly. It’s the one thing you do not ever do. You’ve got to have standards.
This is one reason why the following is true. Government science is an oxymoron, and free science is redundant. When you are behold to government, everything becomes political. Everything. From science to text book selection. Freedom from government means freedom to decide for yourself, and if someone else doesn’t like it, too bad, they can decide for themselves. It seems kind of obvious, but many people have forgotten it.

Racist Frank Rick at the New York Times thinks its about skin color, not ideas! Unfortunately Mr. Rich has bought into the most odious, idiotic, and heinous of the theories of slavery and the Jim Crow era – the one drop theory. This says that anyone with “one drop” of “non-white’ blood is not white. So, President Obama has to be “black” or “African American” and any criticism has to do with skin color, sexual preference (in the case of Barney Frank) or gender (in the case of Nancy Pelosi).
At least Frank Rich is admitting his racism more openly now. Mr. Rich, there is help for racists, please get some: your racism is about as stupid as believing that eye color and hair color matter. And that there is any “race” except “human.”
If we’re going to be socialists, lets be socialists all across the board.

The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people. Rep. John Dingell (D-MI)
The Democrat party is all about money and the power to control people. Not freedom.
A friend of my cousin’s stated, in defense of ObamaCare, “What is so bad about going to doctor and not having to pay?” One answer is that SOMEONE has to pay. You will pay one way or the other. You will pay in cash, in respect from your friends, and in your liberty. There is no middle ground between being a welfare parasite and being free.
There are two ways of dealing with others – voluntarily or at the point of a gun. This solution is to put a gun to my cousin’s head and the Dr’s head and say, “I don’t want to pay my own way, I want YOU to pay for MY choices.” If you want to be free, the gun is not the logical or moral choice. It is the parasitic choice. The thing is that if my cousin’s friend is doing it to the two of them, there are 100s of people who will be doing it to her. Is that what anyone really wants?
I dare say the slave owners in the South felt the same way: “What is so bad about getting food and water and shelter without having to pay.” Oh, you mean the slaves were paying for it with their lives? But, really, “what is so bad about going to … Continue reading What is so bad about going to doctor and not having to pay?
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. C. S. Lewis
In one of the stupidest moves in recent memory, the American Cancer Society now says that most men should not begin having PSA testing DISCUSSED until age 50 with some higher risk groups at 40. Is this a coincidental occurrence with the recent passage of the Health Care Bill? Was it coincidental that the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force raised the recommended mammography breast cancer screening to age 50 in November of 2009? Instead of screening and treating cancers early, the United States is going the opposite way since the beginning of 2009. Knowledge is power, testing is simple and gives you the power instead of giving it to some faceless person elsewhere.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force states
“Potential harms from PSA screening include additional medical visits, adverse effects of prostate biopsies, anxiety, and overdiagnosis (the identification of prostate cancer that would never have caused symptoms in the patient’s lifetime, leading to unnecessary treatment and associated adverse effects). Much uncertainty surrounds which cases of prostate cancer require treatment and whether earlier detection leads to improvements in duration or quality of life. Two recent systematic reviews of the comparative effectiveness and harms of therapies for localized prostate cancer concluded that no single therapy is superior to all others in all situations.”
Anxiety? Of course it is obvious to be anxious if the PSA is elevated, but isn’t it better to know about it and have time to treat it instead of finding out when it is too late?
The recommendations should be: Begin PSA testing at 40, or 30 to 35 for some higher risk groups. But it an individual decision not a “top-down” government forced test.

On ObamaCare: “It takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.” Rep. John Dingell, News Talk WJR with Paul W. Smith, March 23, 2010
Now that it is signed, they can let the cat out of the bag, officially. “Control” and “freedom” do not mix in a free country. Rep. Dingell is the longest serving Democrat in the House of Representatives.
