ObamasCare Passage Calls For Pathos

As one Ohio blog stated, "Memo to Republicans – you’re not as good at scaring seniors as we are"

Now the memo has gone out for bloggers to write (hopefully not their normal faux story) about women and just how rotten they are treated by the health care industry. Look for minorities and children next. Sad and heart wrenching stories, all.

During the Reagan administration the different press offices for the Democrat Party around the nation would weep, wring their hands, write all of the horrible things that would happen if the latest Reagan proposal became law, pull their hair and then go out for drinks.

It became a joke. So much a joke that one wag sent around a satiric Washington Post front page.


It's no different now except much fewer people watch, listen or read the mainstream media, so liberal bloggers and education facilities are stepping into the breach in hopes of blocking the will of the people through made-up pathos and lies.

It's still a joke though.

Irving Penn Dead

Penn would approve such a simple and direct headline. He was an artist that desired simplicity and a direct treatment of his subjects.

Irving Penn was one of the greatest photographers who has ever lived.

His work speaks for itself.

A good photograph is one that communicate a fact, touches the heart, leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective. Irving Penn

Global Warming Is Frosting My World

It's October 8 and already we've had frost. Granted, I am sitting here in a sweatshirt because I don't want to really heat a 120+ year old house, but also I am sick of paying extra for everything I want or need because of the huge set of hidden taxes on those products caused by government over-regulation, taxation and stupid laws that threatens retaliation for things such as toilet paper holders being at the wrong height in businesses everywhere.

I also do not believe in global warming nor the hucksters trying to profit from the theory even if only the need to feel part of something bigger than they.

Scientist: Carbon Dioxide Doesn't Cause Global Warming
A noted geologist who coauthored the New York Times bestseller Sugar Busters has turned his attention to convincing Congress that carbon dioxide emissions are good for Earth and don't cause global warming. Leighton Steward is on Capitol Hill this week armed with studies and his book Fire, Ice and Paradise in a bid to show senators working on the energy bill that the carbon dioxide cap-and-trade scheme could actually hurt the environment by reducing CO2 levels.

The need to address crisis everywhere seems to me to be the bigger problem. It denotes a lacking that could and should be filled by family, philosophy, religion and ethics. That people have decided to pin their existence on manufactured crisis after manufactured crisis and their perpetrators is the real crisis.

Illegal Lawlessness On Laws On Alien Illegals

Laws are in place for a reason and if, say, I don't pay my taxes, I will be prosecuted. Right? Not if one occupies the mighty ethers of the Obama administration. They strip prosecutors of their powers if they, you know, actually use their powers under the law. They order other departments to look the other way if certain senators get special mortgage treatment or congressmen and administration officials cheat on their taxes as long as those suspected, but invaluable to America's future, can cook an excuse at least as well as they cooked their books.

Illegal aliens must also be invaluable to America's future, well, at least to the Democrats future. That must be why the Democrats cry that it is the law that the illegals must get health care, other government benefits and the right to vote. Of course, the Democrats start crying when they need to divert attention from other malfeasance and misfeasance.

Feds limit Ariz. sheriff's crackdown on illegal immigrants
Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he will continue his controversial "crime suppression operations" despite a Department of Homeland Security decision to strip him of authority to arrest suspected illegal immigrants based solely on their immigration status, the East Valley Tribune reports.

“It’s all politics,” says Arpaio, sheriff of Maricopa County.

I agree with the commenter that said Sheriff Arpaio should be put in charge of immigration. Only problem is, besides Democrats being in charge, that not one damned person in Washington, DC has the first idea of how to enforce the law.

Well, maybe it's the ethics to enforce the law, but I really don't have time this millennium to discuss government and ethics.
