John Kerry and other misconceptions

Kerry for Tax Dodger

Well the man the Democrats wanted to be President in 2004 demonstrates that like a lot of Democrats (ie. the ones who are for taxes, but not for paying the taxes), he doesn't have a clue.

Oh, the hurtfulness. Boston Herald piles on, with New England boat builders
wondering why, in times of hardship, Sen. Thurston Howell … I mean John Kerry,
D-Mass., had to outsource his luxury, going halfway around the world to buy the
$7 million yacht he was berthing across state lines in tax-free Rhode Island:

I guess Kerry only believes in stimulus spending with other people's money.

Journolist proves the Main Steam Media was in the bag for Obama

The release of postings from Journolist shows how members of the MSM plotted to disparage Sarah Palin and downplay the Rev. Wright story.

Chris Hayes, a top editor for the liberal magazine The Nation, urged his
colleagues in April 2008 to avoid the subject of Wright because talking about it
at all would hurt Obama. Hayes directed his message specifically to the
straight-news reporters reading his post, saying: “Our country disappears
people. It tortures people. It has the blood of as many as one million Iraqi
civilians — men, women, children, the infirmed — on its hands. You’ll forgive me
if I just can’t quite dredge up the requisite amount of outrage over Barack
Obama’s pastor.”

Can the Democrats retain the House?

Noting that he has long been forecasting that the Republicans are close to
bouncing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Cook evaluated the case made by Democratic strategists who insist that their party has a good shot at retaining the House. And it's not a bad argument.

I don't think they can or will. In fact, I think this election will be a tsunami against the Democrats. I'm not looking at the race by race differences, but the election in general. As was said in the article over 50% of the Republicans are jazzed while only 28% of the Democrats are. Add to this how the independents are favoring the Republican candidates by a 46% to 34% margin and you have the makings of a major shift by the country. Look for the Republicans to gain over 60 seats (this is my SWAG).

NHS to Ration Basic services

Some of the most common operations — including hip replacements and cataract surgery — will be rationed as part of attempts to save billions of pounds, despite government promises that front-line services would be protected.

Patients’ groups have described the measures as “astonishingly brutal”.

Dr. Donald M. Berwick, the new head of Medicare in the United States admires the NHS and believes in rationing. Perhaps this explains why Obama decided to make him a recess appointment before he answered a single question in the Senate. And it should make anyone who is paying attention nervous about Harry Reid's promise that there will be a public option.
