Politicians, union leaders, insurance companies and everyone else under the sun is telling us which bill, tactic, initiative, plan or speech on health care we should support. We are told stories and shown reports of people losing their benefits due to increasing costs. If you are financially responsible, you can turn the tide without joining a union or requiring the government to support you.

The current administration is positioning their policy initiatives as if they are intended to help the working class. Nothing could be further from the truth. It’s not about us.
They wonder why we are angry. They ask why we shout. They do not understand that they aren’t just pushing selfish, socialist crap. They do not understand that real citizens of these United States, want those United States… back. We are willing to fight for that ideal, that idea. An idea for which they have no respect. They underestimate every one of us. They underestimate each individual one of us.
Due to current government spending policies, the fastest growing deficit in history and an administration that is printing money out-of-nowhere in an attempt to keep artificial asset prices (housing bubble) inflated, there is a real possibility that we may enter a period of severe price inflation. Some respected economists, such as Mark Faber, PhD, are even concerned that hyperinflation similar to Zimbabwe’s fiscal catastrophe are not only possible, but assured.
Perhaps we need to look more-closely at the remaining 31 czars. We’re paying their salaries but, for many, there is no congressional oversight, the vetting process is apparently inadequate, they may have access to classified information, and are contributing to matters of national security.

Both initiatives will cost roughly one trillion dollars each and neither one will be passed by the Senate in a traditional vote where 60 senators [...]
With health care reform, racist czars, and the war in Afghanistan taking front-stage lately, the Waxman-Markey bill (H.R. 2454) which contains cap and trade has gotten little attention. While the bill has several promising proposals for modernizing our power infrastructure and moving us towards more sources of renewable energy, there are considerable issues with the market-based pollution controls in the bill. This bill has the potential to create a crisis without having the potential to solve the unproven issue that it seeks to remedy.
Critical legislation is being drafted, reviewed, written about, praised, slammed, publicized and soon… voted upon. Some of this legislation, Health Care Reform and Cap and Trade, has brought a groundswell of criticism from conservative Americans – soon after, criticisms of the criticism by liberals. Why have conservatives suddenly become so aware, so vocal, so active? [...]
In a recent Telegraph article, it is suggested that President Obama is making some historic mistakes in the handling of the American economy. The author goes so far as to say that these mistakes are the same as those made by leaders just before and during one of the darkest financial times in U.S. history [...]
