We all know that American Idol has become the most important thing in the lives of millions of Americans, but some people take their obsession with the show way, way too far. The truth is that it is absolutely frightening how seriously some people take a simple television show. In fact, one mother’s epic tirade after learning that Crystal Bowersox lost to Lee DeWyze in the American Idol finale is quickly becoming a YouTube legend.
If you have not seen the video posted below yet, you have got to watch it. Yes, it is extremely funny in one sense, but it is also an incredibly sad commentary on just how far we have fallen as a nation….
Bill Clinton has discovered a truly unique way of raising money to pay off his wife’s campaign debts. He is raffling off the opportunity to spend a day with him. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Bill Clinton is now a lottery prize.
He has sent an email to millions of people who supported Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2008 that asks this question:
“How would you like the chance to come up to New York and spend the day with me?”
Doesn’t that sound cozy?
Reportedly, an online donation of as little as $5 gets you into the lottery.
The people who brought you “The Great Swine Flu Scare Of 2009″ now want to bring you “The Great Global Health Tax Of 2010″. The World Health Organization is actually considering a plan to ask governments all over the globe to impose a global consumer tax on such things as Internet activity and everyday financial transactions like paying bills online.
Apparently the goal of such a plan would be to raise “tens of billions of dollars” which would then be used to “transfer” pharmaceutical research, development and manufacturing capabilities to the developing world.
Transfer them from where?
Places like the United States?
So let’s get this straight.
According to the WHO global tax plan, they want to do the following three things….
#1) Take away research, development and manufacturing jobs from us and give them to the developing world at a time when we can least afford it.
#2) Give much more money and power to the idiots who brought us the (Read More...)
“They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.”
It is now official. A majority of Americans are willing to give up liberty in order to be safer from terrorism. A stunning new McClatchy-Ipsos poll has found that 51 percent of Americans agree with this statement: ”it is necessary to give up some civil liberties in order to make the country safe from terrorism.”
Only 36 percent of those polled agreed with this statement: “some of the government’s proposals will go too far in restricting the public’s civil liberties.”
So are Americans really this stupid?
Have they really been brainwashed into willingly giving up their essential liberties just so they can feel a little safer?
The Obama administration has decided that Barack Obama can break any law he signs if Obama decides that the law in not constitutional and that he can do this whenever he wants and that he does not even have to tell anyone what he is doing. Seriously. At least George W. Bush informed that American people that he intended to break the laws that he was signing by including a ”signing statement” when he objected to something in a bill. As bad and as unconstitutional as that was, now the Obama administration is taking things to a whole new level by saying that even if Barack Obama signs a bill into law, the Obama administration can still break any law in that bill if the Obama administration decides that it is an “unconstitutional” limit on Obama’s power.
In essence this bring the United States even closer to a dictatorship.
If the president has the ultimate power to decide what is and what is not constitutional, and if the president also has the power to break any laws that he does not feel are constitutional, then the reality is that there are very few limits on his power. The only limit is essentially how big of an imagination he has.
Most Americans who support the health care reform bills currently being rammed through Congress believe that this process will result in Americans receiving universal health care that is cheaper, more efficient and that gives all of us more choices. But that is not the case at all. Rather, Americans will soon have much fewer health choices which are much less efficient and for which they will end up paying much more for. In fact, there are a ton of really nasty surprises for the American people in the health care reform bill. The following are 10 of the nastiest of the surprises….
#1) All Americans will be forced to buy health insurance. If you don’t like the new system, that is too bad for you. If you don’t pay up, you will be heavily fined and you could ultimately end up in prison. There will simply be no escape from participating in this health care system until you die.
#2) Americans will have basically two places from which to get health coverage – either their workplaces or from “insurance (Read More...)
Remember the days when Americans could freely contract with private health insurers for whatever level of health coverage that they wanted for themselves and their families? Those days are over. In the health care bill being rammed through the U.S. Senate, Americans are given 4 health care plan templates from which they must choose and 2 places from which they can get that coverage (either their workplace or from a state-based “insurance exchange”). You see, this is the new socialist America – where health care choices are limited and where conformity is required.
4 Health Care Plan Templates
Many Americans who are supporting the health care reform bill are excited because they think that finally all Americans will get the health care coverage that they want.
But unless what all Americans “want” is contained in the four standardized U.S. government health plan templates that is most definitely not going to be the case.
You see, private health insurers will still be involved in offering health insurance under the new plan, but their health plans will be required to meet the standards set (Read More...)
Most Americans seem to think that the world leaders gathered at the U.N. Copenhagen climate change summit are simply discussing ways to help improve the environment. Unfortunately that is not anywhere close to the truth. The draft of the Copenhagen climate change treaty now circulating would represent a giant step towards a “world government”, it would establish brutal new world taxes which would transfer massive amounts of wealth from the United States to other nations, and it would create 700 new bureaucracies to enforce this new treaty. Not only that, but according to the provisions of the treaty, the United States would never be able to get out of it. The wording of the treaty makes it crystal clear that no future president, no future Congress and no future U.S. court would be able to extricate the United States from this horrific agreement.
An earlier version of the Copenhagen climate change treaty can be found here. However, the version of the treaty now being circulated in Copenhagen is not available to the public at this point.
