GRIFFITH’S PARTY SWITCH ILLUSTRATES THE DEATH OF MODERATE DEMOCRATS

December 23, 2009
Category: Dick's Articles

Parker Griffith’s decision to step out of line and refuse to drink the Democratic Kool-Aid illustrates the Achilles Heel of the Democratic regime in Washington: The radical reign of Pelosi and Reid is held up by pillars of moderate and conservative Democrats who come from districts that regularly vote Republican. To survive in these red precincts, Democrats must act like Republicans, advocating a balanced budget, opposing big spending, and fighting against socialized medicine. But, in Washington, Pelosi and Reid use their backing to bring a radical left leadership to Congress.


DAY ONE: HOW OBAMACARE WILL ALIENATE AMERICANS

December 22, 2009
Category: Dick's Articles

Obama’s health care bill, the poisoned Kool-Aid making its way through the Senate, will not confer any of its supposed benefits on Americans until 2013. But they will find themselves chafing at its restrictions and paying its taxes immediately after the law takes effect. Then, they will see no gain, but plenty of pain, for the next three years.


WINSTON CHURCHILL: “NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP”

If they beat us in the Senate, we will fight them in conference. If they beat us in conference, we will fight them in the House. If they beat us in the House over healthcare, we will fight them over cap and trade. We will fight them over immigration and amnesty. We will fight them over the deficit. We will fight them over the debt. And we will fight them in 2010. We will fight them in the House. We will fight them for Senate seats in Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, and Arkansas. We will fight them in Colorado and North Dakota and California and Washington State. We will fight them in Illinois and in New Jersey. We will never, never, never, never give up! Our country is at stake!


HOW OBAMACARE WILL HURT YOUNG PEOPLE

A detailed analysis of the Obama health care program now before the Senate indicates that it will force big premium increases for all families especially for those under 30 years of age.

The study, by the consulting firm of Oliver Wyman, concludes that premiums for individuals will rise by $1,576 and $3,341 for families by under the bill. Young people will be hit the hardest. The study predicted that premiums for new health insurance policies purchased by the youngest third of the population would rise by 35% under the bill.


HEALTH BILL HAS NO CLOTHES

Due to pressure from enraged Americans, the most pernicious features of Obama’s healthcare legislation have, for now at least, been stripped from his bill. This is no time for complacency, however, since the liberals are trying to push back and get the provisions back in.

As the bill now stands, it doesn’t have any teeth.


COPENHAGEN: AFRICAN DICTATORS DEMAND “DEMOCRACY”

December 15, 2009
Category: Dick's Articles

The Copenhagen conference on climate change, held amid record low freezing temperatures that are blanketing Europe, was shattered by a walkout by the G-77 nations, the bloc of “developing” countries that spans from China to Chad. Their demand? More “democracy and transparency” in the negotiations! They also want massive American and European aid under the guise of helping them adjust to climate change.


U.S. HALF WAY TO KYOTO GOALS – WITH NO GOVERNMENT REGULATION

The worst nightmare of the left is about to come true: The United States is about to achieve the carbon emissions goals set by the 1997 Kyoto Accords. Once seemingly beyond reach, the United States is already half way toward meeting the stringent Kyoto goals for reduction in carbon emissions without a cap and trade law or a carbon tax or carbon dioxide being declared a pollutant.


NEW HEALTH CARE DEAL: THEY’RE ON THE RUN!

December 9, 2009
Category: Dick's Articles

Faced with a massive center-right uprising, the Obama liberals have been forced to abandon a public option. But in doing so, they are throwing the Medicare program under the bus.

Already, we have been asking how you can treat a growing number of elderly with a Medicare program that this bill cuts by $500 billion dollars. Now, by adding tens of millions of people 55-64 to the program, it makes it even more financially untenable.


THE CHARGE OF THE 280 DEMS

Published on TheHill.com on December 8, 2009

Let’s first channel Alfred, Lord Tennyson from his poem “The Charge of the Light Brigade”:

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred (two-hundred eighty)
“Forward the Light Brigade!
Charge for the guns,” he said
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred. (two-hundred eighty)

“Forward, the Light Brigade!”
Was there a man dismay’d?
Not tho’ the soldier knew
Someone had blunder’d:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred. (two-hundred eighty)


MAMMOGRAM DECISION TO KILL 11,500 WOMEN

December 7, 2009
Category: Dick's Articles

The best possible example of the kinds of conflicts that will increasingly undermine the US health care system if Obama’s bill passes is the effect of the federal government’s advice to women under 49 to abstain from mammograms. What may make sense from a national perspective that focuses on the need to control costs makes no sense from the perspective of a woman trying to avoid dying from breast cancer and her family.
