How do you pay for a one trillion dollar national heath care program for the entire nation? You can certainly rule out any taxes paid by illegal aliens, welfare recipients and the wealthy. So, do the math......
Barack Obama has maintained that his health care plan would not affect the middle class, yet two of his advisers stated on national television that they can not rule that out. To get the economy back on track, will President Barack Obama have to break his pledge not to raise taxes on 95 percent of Americans? Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, on ABC's "This week with George Stephanopoulos " said, "We’re going to have to do what’s necessary.” Geithner was clear that he believes a key component of economic recovery is deficit reduction. When given him several opportunities to rule out a middle class tax hike, he wouldn’t do it.
White House senior adviser David Axelrod has also said the president won't rule out a health care reform bill that includes a tax hike on people making less than $250,000 a year.
The bottom line? Obama's socialistic attitude and views are continuing to surface and sooner or later, we will all know the real Barack Obama and his actual views and beliefs that are not his teleprompter. His initial gut reaction to the incident between professor Louis Gates and Cambridge police Sgt. James Crowley showed his true colors and was only the tip of the iceberg.
Remember "Read my lips, no new taxes", the now-famous phrase spoken by then presidential candidate George H. W. Bush at the 1988 Republican National? Once he became president, Bush raised taxes as a way to reduce the national budget deficit.
Obama's campaign phrase "No tax increases for 95% of the American public" should have been, "Watch my nose, 95% of Americans won’t have their taxes raised" (Unless you count cigarettes, fast food, sodas, allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire or the new tax that we’re going to pass to raise money for my national health care plan). Well, Obama was elected and........
This is the inherent problem with Democratic Socialism. At some point, you run out of other hard working people’s money to spend. It took less than 6 months into Obama’s first year to run out of 100% of the people’s money. If your entire platform is spending and giveaways, how does this bode for an administration with 3 and a half years left?
On an even sadder note, if Obama's health care plan passes, It will be signed by a president who secretly smokes, supervised by an obese surgeon general and paid for by a country that's broke.

Picture Of The Day: It didn't take long to find photoshopped pictures of Barack Obama, especially after the remarks of two of his most trusted advisers the past week. The one continuing thing that remains unchanged about all politicians, both democrats, republicans and independents, is that the lying, thieving bastards will tell you anything you want to hear to get elected.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) My new music studio recording equipment is even better than I expected. It was a little difficult to work with at first, but I'm quite pleased with the results. I've recorded six songs so far. 2) Since some of the people flying to the mid-east might be terrorists, the flight attendants usually ask, "Will you be sitting in armed or unarmed?" 3) Rectitude is the formal, dignified demeanour assumed by a proctologist immediately before he examines you. 4) I remember when one of my girlfriends took her drivers test. She got 8 out of 10. The other 2 guys jumped clear. 5) Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
Willie was taking his pregnant wife to the hospital when his car went out of control and crashed. Regaining consciousness, he saw his brother, Tyrone, sitting at his bed side. Willie asked his brother how his wife was doing and his brother said, "Don't worry, everybody is fine and you have a son and a daughter. But the hospital was in a real hurry to get the birth certificates filed and since both you and your wife were unconscious, I named them for you.
Willie thought, "Oh no, what has he done now?" Willie said, "Well, bro, what did you name them?" Tyrone replied, "I named the little girl Denise." Willie was relieved and said, "That's a lovely name! And what did you come up with for my son?" Tyrone replied, "Denephew."
A big earthquake with the strength of 8.1 on the Richter scale has hit Mexico. 150,000 Mexicans have died and over a million are Injured. The country is totally ruined and the government doesn't know where to start with providing help to rebuild. The rest of the world is in shock.
Canada is sending troopers to help the Mexican army control the riots. The European community (except France) is sending food and money. The United States, not to be outdone, is sending 150,000 replacement Mexicans. A man fell asleep on the beach and when he woke up several hours later and suffered a severe sunburn to his legs and was taken to the closest hospital, which happened to be a U.S. Naval Hospital. His skin had turned a bright red and was very painful and had started to blister. Anything that touched his legs caused agony.
The lead on the medical staff at the naval hospital, that night, was a Chief Corpsman, in the emergency room. The Chief checked him out and then prescribed continued intravenous feedings of water, electrolytes, a mild sedative, and Viagra.
Rather astounded, the 3rd class corpsman, who was with the Chief inquired, "What good will Viagra do him in that condition?" The Chief replied, "It'll keep the sheet off his legs."
That's it for today my little moon pies. Remember that there are very few personal problems that cannot be solved through a suitable application of high explosives. More on Wednesday.
