Note to Obama, Please, Please Have Them Hit Back Here.

 This is the opinion of an angry conservative that The Conservative Majority proudly supports.
The President and the and the Democratic leadership have asked the "dumb masses" to hit back twice as hard at those of us that oppose the government take over of the medical system.  The only reply from "The Conservative Majority" is "bring it own".  I say that mainly because I am tired of the Chicago thug politics out of the White House.  The only reason such a declaration has been necessary is because honest, hardworking Americans are seeing through the BS being spewed out by this President and Democratic leadership and we do not want the bill of goods you are selling.  I am fully prepared to defend my position here and hope that the masses of people who have already spoken out are willing to do the same.  No, we are not being placed at the town hall meetings and tea parties by special interests; we are going as a result of our own interest and the interest of this great country.  I have defended her proudly on many fronts and often times at my own sacrifice and, damn it, I will defend her against this.  This is still my America, the bright shining city on a hill that President Reagan gave us such a brilliant vision of and by God I dare you, President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, or any of the rest of you to try and take her away.  Stand up Conservatives, Republicans, and Libertarians and get into the fight.

What Did We Learn From the "Beer Summit"?

As the whole world has now heard, President Obama had Henry Louis Gates and Sgt. James Crowley over to the White House Thursday for the now infamous "Beer Summit".  What did we learn from this summit.  Was it a "teachable moment" on race relations in this country?  Yes, if you didn't already know how quickly Obama will pull the race card from his deck.  Was it a commentary on the conduct of police officer? No. What we learned was what happens when a President, who is not exceptionally bright, goes off script from what the tel-prompter tells him to say.  What we learned was what happens when a President, who has no real ideas on an issue, wants to distract people from his failure.

There were a hundred things that Obama could have done Thursday beside knocking back a cold one with Gates and Crowley.  Things like working on real ideas to help the economy and real ideas to work on health care, but Obama has no real ideas.  That led him to go back into the Democrat playbook, like he has done with every failed policy he has proposed, and pull an oldie but goody from the pages.  When in doubt, stir up a hornets nest by fanning the race issue debate even in an incident that has nothing to do with race.  The arrest of Gates was the gift that was laid at the feet of Obama and the media used it to cover the fact that the President is losing the debate on health care.

So Mr. President, we hoped you enjoyed your beer and the great press you received from the media that is so much in your hip pocket.  Now, will you please get to work trying to provide real answers for the issues that face this country instead of trying to destroy our economy and way of life with your socialist agenda.  Mind the business of being President instead of butting into things that are of no concern to you.  If you want a "teachable moment" read a book on basic, fundamental economics and at least act like you are the intellectual that you have fooled the "dumb masses" into believing that you are.

She's At it Again. Nancy Pelosi Now Attacking Insurance Companies

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Thursday went off on one of her now famous rants attacking insurance companies accusing them of trying to derail health care reform and prevent.  Rep. Pelosi told reporters the following Thursday.

"It's almost immoral what they are doing.Of course they've been immoral all along in how they have treated the people that they insure.  They are the villains. They have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening."

Nancy Pelosi has never been known for her intelligence or her willingness to tell the truth.  Her attack on insurance companies is just a ploy to take the attention of the people away from the real problem, which is a health care reform bill being pushed through Congress that the American people do not want.  The American people do not trust Washington to run a government health care plan.  If the government handles health care the way that it has the "cash for clunkers" program they have a reason to be nervous.  Lets face it, if the government can't run a used car lot, how can they run a hospital.

The fact that Nancy Pelosi can stand before the American people and accuse anyone of unethical behavior is the height of hypocrisy.  Again, here is another Democrat attacking an American business that provides jobs to citizens and adds to our economy.  The medical insurance industry is not perfect, but this is due in part to having to work within the tightening hands of government regulation.  And that is the issue.  Pelosi and the Democrats do not care about providing insurance coverage to all Americans, they care about the power that universal health care gives them over our lives.  That is immoral.

If the Democrats really wanted a real health care plan that would protect Americans against the cost of health care they would present a universal catastrophic care plan.   That would protect Americans against the expense of hospital bills and we would in turn be responsible for our general health care coverage.  Insurance cost would go down because the insurance companies would not have huge pay-outs to cover hospital expenses and the cost to the government would only be a fraction of the behemoth bill being endorsed by Democratic leadership.

Nancy please, do us all a favor.  When you see a pet project blowing up in your face because you are trying to pull something over the American people, don't blame insurance companies, oil companies, or whoever you are targeting this week.  Be honest and tell us that you want your way no matter what we think.  Better yet step away from the microphone and, as Tyler Perry's Mabel "Madea" Simmons character would say, "put the shut to the up".
