Posts Tagged ‘England’

Quite the week we’ve had so far! Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, and now Billy Mays all dead.  Unfreakin’ believable!  I wish piece of shit crap and tax bill would have died as well!  Anyway – after a two week hiatus – The BoBo Carnival of Politics is back with another great edition.  Have at it people!

Conservative

The Smarter Wallet presents Dave Ramsey’s Town Hall For Hope posted at The Smarter Wallet, saying, “How does Dave Ramsey explain the financial crisis?”

You’ll see below in response to your credit card discussion that I mentioned I already paid off a few cards and have one left before I’m out of debt.  I went through the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University.  Dave Ramsey is awesome and what you have on your blog is absolutey right.  Once again, great post using a great resource.  I highly recommend it to anybody to view his Town Hall video and his Financial Peace University – especially in today’s economy.

Michael Bass presents Joe Tegerdine VS Gene Taylor! The Battle For Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District! posted at Debt Prison, saying, “Every now and then a person runs for office that gives us hope. For many voters in the last election Barack Obama was that person. Obama promised ambiguous ‘Change’ and the people bought it. Unfortunately, for many Obama fans and devout Democrats, his foreign policy actions and his further crack down on civil liberties has come to resemble something like George Bush part II.”

Interesting – hopefully, Tegerdine turns out to be a true conservative then maybe he can defeat that faux Democratic Conservative Taylor.

lsm presents Teddy?s Legacy Will Kill Us All posted at awaken the elephants blog.

LSM – excellent.  I have nothing further to add to this.

Scott Spiegel presents U.S. Invents Diabolical Weapon Called “Twitter” to Bring Down Iranian Regime posted at Scott Spiegel, saying, “President Obama said last week that he doesn’t want the U.S. to be seen as “meddling” in the recent Iranian presidential election. In his view, vocally supporting the protesters is comparable to the CIA’s coup against Mossadeq in 1953.”

Amen, brother!  We should be standing behind the Iranian citizens with the full faith and trust of our government and our own citizens.  Obama is wrong on this one.

Liberal

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Don’t Ask. Don’t Tell. Just Sign! posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness.

Mad Kane – I’m sure I don’t need to say this – personally – I think this needs to be repealed entirely and have it back to what it was before Clinton instituted the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy.  The UCMJ states that sodomy is a punishable offense as is any other forms of homosexual relations.  We don’t need gays OPENLY serving in the military.  This would be a huge bust for the morale of our military.  I’m sorry – but – the military is by no means ready for this and it would not be accepted.

Libertarian

Wenchypoo presents Just When You Thought You Ran Out of Hope posted at Wisdom From Wenchypoo’s Mental Wastebasket.

Bwahaha – Liberty Lentils – good one.

Miscellaneous

Bob Brooks presents Wall Street Execs Living Large While the Rest of the Country Hurts posted at Bob Brooks – Prudent Money Blog.

Don’t forget – Timothy “Turbo Tax” Geithner is a Goldman Sachs alumni himself and still has buddies there.  Nothing will be done.  Just more paybacks from this administration for these company’s providing material support for Obama.

Mikkal Travvis presents Ron Paul And The Federal Reserve posted at The Truth.

I don’t generally tend to side with Ron Paul on many issues.  I think he’s a nutjob with a lot of his positions.  However, I support him 100% with regards to doing away with the Federal Reserve and having them open their books.  The decision in the 30′s to hand over that much power to a private organization was by far one of the most idiotic things this country and our government has ever done.  It’s time to take that power away from them.

News

Terri Choate presents Trickle Down Learning posted at Plum Duff…not your ordinary gruel!, saying, “Maybe this is old news…but school districts regularly understate the money spent per pupil as they ask for more, more, more.”

Great article.  Public schools happens to be one of my “soap-box” issues.  While I don’t know what the per pupil cost is in my district – we have multiple layers of administration that are totally unnecessary.  Since when does a High School and Middle School need a freakin Assistant Principle for each grade and each of them having a secretary, etc etc – not to mention each grade having at least 2 “administrators” that handle discipline.  It’s gotten so ridiculous that most of our tax money goes to paying salaries instead of purchasing text books.  I sent four kids through public school.  2 graduated and 2 dropped out.  I’m sending my last 2 to private schools now.

Bradley Hankins presents Who Is Back? posted at Bradley Hankins, saying, “You was wondering when I was going to start up again. Well here I am.”

Welcome Back Bradley – looking forward to your analysis of the various bills.

The Smarter Wallet presents Applying For A Credit Card? Review The Credit Card Bill of Rights posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “Obama just signed into law some regulations that will help curb some of the unpopular practices done by the credit industry. Here’s what’s in the credit card bill of rights, which is under review by our government.”

Great words of advise for those who are thinking about getting a credit card.  I already cut up all mine and have paid them off.  I have one more to go then I’m out of credit card hell.  My advise is – use cash!  If you can’t afford to pay for it in cash – well – then in today’s economy – you really can’t afford it at all then.  Save for it instead.

Politics

Bradley Hankins presents Common Sense Foreign Policy: North Korea posted at Bradley Hankins, saying, “Common sense dealings with North Korea. Even more to come, just one was just too easy.”

You are absolutely right – we should not be looking to the international community to protect ourselves.  That is just plain ridiculous.  Great post.

NAOMI presents NEW AD AGAINST BENEFIT THIEVES posted at Diary From England.

Naomi – I’ll have to admit that I haven’t been paying real close attention to exactly what is going on over on your side of the big pond.  However, I have been following Daniel Hannen pretty closely so I get the point.  Unfortunately, we’re seeing a similar situation here in the U.S. – rather than second homes – our politicians get lifelong benefits and 100% salary after they retire and that even gets passed on to their spouses after they die and then the spouses collect 100% benefit and salary until they die.  Pretty freakin ridiculous that these politicians consider themselves so elite they can steal from we the people.

Bradley Hankins presents Transparency posted at Bradley Hankins, saying, “Honestly, putting legislation in plain English would help so much.”

Agreed!  However, this administration that promised transparency has given us none at all.

Jake presents Why the World Hates America (Part 1) posted at Global Implications, saying, “Given the negative attitude toward the United States around the world, I am writing a multi-part series on the actions of the US since World War II with the worst consequences. I will post an article every day and should finish the seven-part series on Friday, June 26.”

Jake – I hope you don’t mind but I took the liberty to post the links to the remaining articles.  This is a very interesting analysis.  However, I would say that we still have many more friends and allies than we do enemies.  It seems our only real enemies in the world are radical regimes. Please post up the last remaining parts in next week’s carnival! Personally, regarding Part 5 – I think we need to “unflinchingly” support Israel.  They are our only true ally in the middle east.  Being a former Hebrew Linguist in the Air Force – I understand Israel and the day-to-day struggles they have to face.  They are under constant terrorist attack every day.  They need our support and we should stand behind them all the way.

Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5

Ram Raghavan presents The incorrectness of political correctness posted at ramraghav.com, saying, “What is political correctness? What is its cause and its consequence?”

Ram – you are so totally right on with this post.  The only thing I would add here is that the history of Political Correctness actually has its roots in marxism and Russia.  Here’s another good resource for you on the history.

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of the bobo carnival of politics using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

h/t to Pauly at Political Rants from the Right – I actually found this video at his place today.  I’m in agreement with him – this guy Hannen needs to show our politicians what it means to have some balls.  Check this out!

I just KNEW there were some great Brits over on that side of the pond that were actually conservative. This man has renewed my faith in our British Brothers. Perhaps now someone over here will stand up and face Obama and dress his ass down as it should be.

Some of you may or may not be aware that one of the items in this so-called stimulus package is the provision of appointing an individual to oversee our healthcare system and to assist physicians in making medical decisions and keeping costs down.  You can see that here and here (this is actually a new department) and here. Michelle Malkin has more detail on the socialized medicine provision as well.  This is the particular section of the last one I gave you that everyone needs to understand:

‘‘(4) provides appropriate information to help guide medical decisions at the time and place of care; ‘‘(5) ensures the inclusion of meaningful public input in such development of such infrastructure;

This is in reference to the duties of the newly created position of National Coordinator of Health Information Technology.  Do we really want the government controlling our physicians and their medical decision making processes?

The following is a very tragic story – it comes to us from England and this is exactly what could happen to us if we allow nationalized medicine here in this country:

Girl Starves After All Her Teeth Are Pulled

(Feb. 9) – An 8-year-old British girl who was terrified of dentists starved to death because she refused to eat after all her baby teeth were extracted, an inquest was told Monday.
British media reported Sophie Waller died Dec. 2 in her home in St. Dennis, Cornwall, in southwestern England. A pathologist told the inquest in Truro, Cornwall, that the girl died of acute kidney failure caused by dehydration and starvation, the BBC News said.

Sophie developed a fear of dentists as a 4-year-old when a dentist accidentally cut her tongue during a check-up, the inquest was told, according to the Daily Mail.
Four years later, she cracked a tooth on a candy but refused to go to the dentist. After she would not eat for three days, she was admitted to a hospital, where doctors removed all of her baby teeth.
Sophie’s parents, Janet and Richard Waller, insisted they only gave consent for one tooth to be pulled, not eight.

“She didn’t like dentists already so she was very freaked out. She had blood running all down her face. The poor girl was devastated,” Janet Waller said.

Sophie was discharged from the hospital in Nov. 17 but thereafter refused to eat solid food, the Times of London said. Her parents said they could get her to swallow only small amounts of yogurt and mashed fruit.
The Wallers said they called the hospital on Nov. 28 but was told Sophie could not be readmitted. Instead they were told to contact a community child psychologist who had been assigned to the case, and the psychologist told them not to worry. Sophie’s parents said they talked to their regular family doctor once over the phone, but no medical practitioner ever saw the child.

“No one saw her after she was discharged from hospital. I told [the child psychologist] she was sucking on a watermelon, she told me that was enough for her to survive on,” Janet Waller said. ‘I asked her to come round and see her but she kept saying there is nothing to worry about and I’ll come next week.”

“This could have easily been avoided, if we could have just gone to the hospital,” Sophie’s father said.

I emphasized that last line there.  This is not the fault of the parents this time.  This is the fault of a government controlled healthcare system based on rationing of care.  If we let this stimulus bill pass we are setting up the first steps to Universal Healthcare based on rationing of care – and cases such as Sophie’s will start showing up in U.S. news as well!
Besides – what the hell does creating a national healthcare oversight department have anything to do with stimulating the economy?
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – Obama is a freakin’ idiot and a buffoon.  That Harvard education that he got was definitely bought off because he sure did not learn a damned thing.  He’s inexperienced and doesn’t have a clue about economics or taxes and the people he’s been putting on his cabinet don’t know shit either otherwise they wouldn’t be trying to ram this piece of shit down our throats.  They’ve completely ignored the advice of the Congressional Budget Office and from well respected economists around this country.
Sure – they’ve closed debate on the issue – but – we can still urge our Senators to vote NO on this crapulous bill.  I found a great graphic that everyone needs to see if you still haven’t gotten the picture yet (click on the graphic if you want to see a larger picture and the discussion from the Washington Post):
UPDATE: I guess the debate AND the vote is over.  Those idiots with the help of three RINO’s passed this idiotic bill.
