I thoroughly enjoyed House Minority Leader John Boehner’s speech on the House floor on Sunday. And so I post it here for all to enjoy.
And if you don’t believe she loves Castro, I can find that quote too. These types of communist-loving people really should relocate out of this country because they no longer stand for nor appreciate the American value system, but instead try to denigrate and tear down any true representatives of American patriotism.
Note from the author…the word “teabagger” is actually the term for a sex act performed by homosexuals. It is a word that the left loves to use to denigrate and demean the tea party conservative movement. I had never heard of it (living the sheltered life that I do) and so I had to do some research, and I am quite sorry that now I know what that word means.
To those who think a socialized, government-run (which is pretty much what we will have under the new law) health care system is a good idea, here is what doctors really think of it. Yeh, I know it’s just from a novel, but you wait. The same thing will happen in our medical profession. No one wants their talents and time hijacked, not to mention all the years they spent going to school.
“I quit when medicine was placed under State control, some years ago,” said Dr. Hendricks. “Do you know what it takes to perform a brain operation? Do you know the kind of skill it demands, and the years of passionate, merciless, excruciating devotion that go to acquire that skill? That was what I would not place at the disposal of men whose sole qualification to rule me was their capacity to spout the fraudulent generalities that got them elected to the privilege of enforcing their wishes at the point of a gun. I would not let them dictate the purpose for which my years of study had been spent, or the conditions of my work, or my choice of patients, or the amount of my reward. I observe that in all the discussions that preceded the enslavement of medicine, men discussed everything – except the desires of the doctors. Men considered only the ‘welfare’ of the patients, with no thought to those who were to provide it. That a doctor should have any right, desire, or choice in the matter, was regarded as irrelevant selfishness; his is not to choose, they said, only ‘to serve.’ That a man who’s willing to work under compulsion is too dangerous a brute to entrust with a job in the stockyards – never occurred to those who proposed to help the sick by making life impossible for the healthy. I have often wondered at this smugness with which people assert their right to enslave me, to control my work, to force my will, to violate my conscience, to stifle my mind – yet what is it that they expect to depend on, when they lie on an operating table under my hands? Their moral code has taught them to believe that it is safe to rely on the virtue of their victims. Well, that is the virtue I have withdrawn. Let them discover the kinds of doctors that their system will now produce. Let them discover, in their operating rooms and hospital wards, that it is not safe to place their lives in the hands of a man whose life they have throttled. It is not safe, if he is the sort of man who resents it – and still less safe, if he is the sort who doesn’t.”
From Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged
I have to share this. I don’t think I have ever seen anything like it in my life. I only wish I had had my camera with me to get a photo.
I went to church this morning to find in the lobby of my church….your (and mine) tax dollars at work…in my church! There was a table filled with all sort of items promoting the Census…a tall stack of t-shirts with red Census 2010 and other printing on them, red coffee mugs, lanyards, zippered cd cases, and other items. I can’t remember them all. I find this amazing. I inquired and found that someone from the government or the census had called the church and asked if the church would promote the census…and so we are. I’m sure everything was “free”.
So what do you think?
The following statement is from Andy Stern in a recent interview with Ezra Klein at the Washington Post. He is referring to the Democrats and the discussion is about health care reform.
“There’s the feeling that there hasn’t been enough accountability, that we’re (the unions?) being taken for granted. If careers, rather than issues, drive the decision making, then we need to make ourselves more involved in these people’s career planning (emphasis mine).”—Andy Stern, president of SEIU.

Since the election of Barack Obama as president we have seen Mr. Stern become a regular visitor to the White House and the unions getting sweetheart deals and first rights in the government takeover of GM while stockholders who by law were to get first rights have been brushed aside. One can only wonder what Stern might mean by his statement. The agenda of leftist progressives like Andy Stern does not bode well for the freedom of anyone in America.

Sen. Coburn to House Dems: If you vote ‘yes’ this time, I will expose your pork and filibuster your nomination after you lose

Dr. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., the Senator from bomb-throw:
SEN. TOM COBURN (R), OKLAHOMA: I want to send a couple of messages to my colleagues in the House.
If you voted no and you vote yes, and you lose your election, and you think any nomination to a federal position isn’t going to be held in the Senate, I’ve got news for you. It’s going to be held.
Number two is, if you get a deal, a parochial deal for you or your district, I’ve already instructed my staff and the staff of seven other senators that we will look at every appropriations bill, at every level, at every instance, and we will outline it by district, and we will associate that with the buying of your vote. So, if you think you can cut a deal now, and it not come out until after the election, I want to tell you that isn’t going to happen. And be prepared to defend selling your vote in the House.
This is the Washington, D.C. equivalent of “I shall avenge unto the fourth generation and salt your family’s plot of land with your blood.” For once, some real change in D.C.
