Zack Space Votes With Liberals For Health Care "Reform"

A vote against the separate up and down HCR vote resolution was a vote for HCR and against the will of the people.

Dems defeat GOP effort to force separate vote on Senate health bill

Zack Space voted for the socialist HCR and against his constituents at the same time. Space is no longer a Blue Dog Democrat, he's a lap dog for Pelosi and her socialized medicine.

Fess Parker Passes At 85

As a child I thought I had others convinced I was Davy Crockett. Of course, my parents had bought me a coonskin cap which I wore everywhere, including bed. I had an air rifle which I would jam into the dirt in order to be fully loaded before I shot an imaginary bear. My rubber knife was always sharp. I even had a fringed jacket that I had found it in a trash pile behind the Salvation Army store. My mother had reluctantly cleaned it for me, but neglected to tell me it was a little girl’s jacket. Didn't matter, I was Davy Crockett.

My parents purchased tickets to see the movie Alamo. We had reserved seats and a tall thin lady carrying a tray of goodies and cigarettes walked the aisles before the movie began. I was so excited I couldn't sit still. I fidgeted in my shorts, knee highs, bow tie, jacket and coonskin cap. As the movie started I kept looking for the David Crockett. To my horror it wasn't Davy, but just some actor who I later found out was named John Wayne. My mother leaned in close and told me that Davy had given his permission for Mr. Wayne to portray him. Disappointed, but awed by the giant screen and the swirling colors I quietly watched in awe as the defenders of the Alamo and the soldiers of the Mexican army spoke of their respect for each other before the final bloody battle. It didn't hurt so much when the actor portraying Davy died in front of the chapel because he wasn't really Davy, just an actor.

In time, as I got older and was allowed to watch TV and began to go to movies, I began a lifetime of respect for John "Duke" Wayne, but Fess Parker was the only real Davy Crockett to me and Davy must have talked to my mother because he gave her permission for her and my father to call me Davy. They did until I became a teenager.

Fess Parker was a good man.

OFO/OFA Astroturfs For HCR With Plagiarized Material

Organizing for Obama which is now called Organizing for America is pulling a second Ellie Light astroturfing to give the appearance of support for the HCR bill Nancy Pelosi is trying to foist on America.

President Obama Promotes OFA Astroturf Campaign (with Bonus Plagiarism)

Rahm Axlerod must be proud.

To Change Washington, Change Obama

Go to Drudge, CBSnews, Reuters, etc., and all you will see are articles about how Obama and Democrats are trying to change Washington by changing the rules to allow for HCR to pass.

If voters want real change all they have to do is say "stop it."

To change Washington, change Obama and the way he wants change. Spending Trillions we don't have is not the change we want.

CBO: Only $940 B For Incomplete Health Care!!!!

Gee, only $940 billion for this health care reform. Have you an extra $940 billion we might have? Maybe another $940 billion to insure the rest of the people that this bill doesn't cover?

Think about it, if this bill, according to the CBO, saves $130 billion in the first 10 years then by doing the next part we can save another $130 billion for a grand total of $260 billion in savings! Right?

Source: CBO estimates health care bill at $940 billion
The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that the Democrats' revised health care bill will cost $940 billion over the next 10 years, a House Democratic source told CNN Thursday.

The bill cuts the deficit by $130 billion during that period of time, according to the source.

This report is so bogus because it takes into account "savings" that Congress will implement over the next ten years. Has Congress ever controlled spending over the long term? No.

Kiss the savings goodbye. Might as well wave bye-bye just once instead of twice, thrice and so forth. You don't want to sprain that arm. You may need health care.
