I'm not working and I sure wish I could afford an insurance company. : )
If the government offered me a FREE plan, I am fairly sure I would only accept it if I were already sick; otherwise I would logically think a government plan would surely MAKE me sick; literally, figuratively, spiritually, politically, coo coo Ratcha.........

Well, since words are getting funny on this topic:
IF we are to become an Obama Nation, I guess we'll have to study that in detail and we'll surely discover that:
"abomination":
Definition: object of extreme dislike, hate
Synonyms: anathema, aversion, bother, curse, detestation, evil, horror, nuisance, plague, shame, torment

I think he's just a kid who got to be a Senator, who communicates well and has lots of bizarre beliefs and buddies. Overall, I am convinced he is playing the role of ROBIN HOOD. The scary thing is over at the Congress where they are mostly all acting just like the Merry Men from that (previously) mythical tale. {You had me going though.....}. : )

Rusty, please go to www.GOOOH.com and fill out the questionnaire. If you become one of the people in our House of Representatives, you can help us prevent what you so wisely predicted. Thanks! Note: Fill out the questionnaire and find out just how great that concept is: Replace the entire HOUSE with American people. THAT is what our fore fathers INTENDED!

mediachild, you will never meet me at a Tea Party and know it is me. I will never ever tell anyone I am Elmer.
I will show up at tea parties and sites with conservative PATRIOTS like these, for the rest of my life. If we get invaded, nuked, or break out into a huge civil war etc. I will fight to protect AMERICA and our CONSTITUTION until I am the last person standing (or crawling). You choose your battles based on WHO IS GOING TO WIN? Then GET THE HELL OUT.

Good question. To change the topic for a short Standing Ovation for our Marines, based on an email I received today, please excuse (and ENJOY) this interruption to your query:

A Good Day for The Corps

Our Marines "in action"
SITREP FROM SHEWAN, AFGHANISTAN

A target rich environment...Lucky Devil Dogs!

Outnumbered 8 - 1: 'A good day for the Corps'
By Peter Bronson

"Our vehicles came under a barrage of enemy RPGs(rocket-propelled grenades) and machine gun fire. One of our humvees was disabled from RPG fire, and the Marines inside dismounted and laid down suppression fire so they could evacuate a Marine who was knocked unconscious from the blast."

The quote comes from a "designated marksman who requested to remain unidentified." He was reporting what happened recently in the city of Shewan, Afghanistan. The story was told in a Marine Corps News report by Cpl. James M. Mercure. It will give you goose bumps and make you want to stand up and salute the nearest flag. Here's more, because it's a lot better than anything I could write today:

"The day started out with a 10-kilometer patrol with elements mounted and dismounted, so by the time we got to Shewan, we were pretty beat,"the marksman said. Mercure reported, "Shewan had been a thorn in the side of Task Force 2d Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force Afghanistan throughout the Marines' deployment here in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, because it controls an important supply route into the Bala Baluk district. Opening the route was key to continuing combat operations in the area."

"The vicious attack that left the humvee destroyed and several of the Marines pinned down in the kill zone sparked an intense eight-hour battle as the platoon desperately fought to recover their comrades. After recovering the Marines trapped in the kill zone, another platoon sergeant personally led numerous attacks on enemy fortified positions while the platoon fought house to house and trench to trench in order to clear through the enemy ambush site.

"The biggest thing to take from that day is what Marines can accomplish when they're given the opportunity to fight," the sniper said. "A small group of Marines met a numerically superior force and embarrassed them in their own backyard. The insurgents told the townspeople that they were stronger than the Americans, and that day we showed them they were wrong."

"During the battle, the designated marksman single handedly thwarted a company-sized enemy RPG and machine gun ambush by reportedly killing 20 enemy fighters with his devastatinglyaccurate precision fire. He selflessly exposed himself time and again to intense enemyfire during a critical point in the eight-hour battle for Shewan in order to kill any enemy combatants who attempted to engage or maneuver on the Marines in the kill zone. What made his actions even more impressive was the fact that he didn't miss any shots, despite the enemies' rounds impacting within a foot of his fighting position. "I was in my own little world," the young corporal said. "I wasn't even aware of a lot of the rounds impacting near my position, because I was concentrating so hard on making sure my rounds were on target."

After calling for close-air support, the small group of Marines pushed forward and broke the enemies' spirit as many of them dropped their weapons and fled the battlefield. At the end of the battle, the Marines had reduced an enemy stronghold, killed more than 50 insurgents and wounded several more. "I didn't realize how many bad guys there were until we had broken through the enemies' lines and forced them to retreat. It was roughly 250 insurgents against 30 of us," the corporal said. "It was a good day for the Marine Corps. We killed a lot of bad guys, and none of our guys were seriously injured."

Such an amazing story of heroism and victory would have been on Page One in every paper in the country during World War II. Just 30 Marines giving eight hours of hell to 250 insurgents is the kind of story that would make a good movie -- if that kind of movie still could be made.

But these days, it did not even make Page 10. I couldn't find a story about it anywhere. The only mentions were on conservative blogs and military Web sites. The soldiers who are fighting for their lives and our country might as well be in another dimension. News from the battlefronts in Iraq and Afghanistan is apparently not important. It reminds the jaded anti-war crowd that they were wrong. We're winning. It reminds a self-centered nation that some Americans are making sacrifices much bigger than a loss in their 401(k)s.

So we don't hear about it.

But we need to hear news like that, because a good day for the Marine Corps is a good day for freedom. And that's a good day for America.

I received this email today and I'm SURE it would be just fine to get it published in any newspaper on any page.
It seems WE are the "actual NEWS" these days:

We need Glenn Beck's white board (from tonight's show) in a POSTER. As I understand it, the "big conspiracy" this administration is running has three major sections:
GREEN agenda
UNIONS
Health Care.
These three are all being inter-connected in ways that will mix them all into the Federal Government, to create a huge "Chicago style" government which looks a lot like Socialism.
The answer to Glenn's question, "Why is there nobody else in the MEDIA reporting on this?!" ........is fairly simple:
The MSM is dismissing Glenn Beck entirely. To the extent that any of them EVER saw that discussion (from his white board).......they surely just ENJOYED the sense that they were a part of something massive and organized; something the Conservatives in America can no longer believe. We are on our own now. We are not being lead by honest leaders; we are (as Glenn suspects) being "over taken." I want that white board on a poster. : )
