Democrat Health Care cost in NY, NY

Also an excellent representation of what this health care bill will mean to people. People who the democrats claim to help, but only punish. New York Post

A Visual Representation of the Democrat Medical System

Here's a game to play:
1. Find yourself on the Map.
2. Count the number of steps to the 'Health Insurance Exchange'
3. Count the number of steps to the 'Health Care Professionals'
4. Add together, do an identical number of jumping jacks. This will help you more then this plan.

Sarah Palin's Tax Record

Gino: " palm boy: what taxes did she raise that turned you off on her? if its what i'm thinking, it wasnt really an increase in taxes as reported in the media."

The CATO institute has a good, albeit short, look at her tax record.
"Palin supported and signed into law a $1.5 billion tax increase on oil companies in the form of higher severance taxes."

Sarah Palin's Political Masterstroke 2.0

The current Governor of Alaska, former Vice Presidential Candidate of the Republican party, has announced her resignation for later this month.

This is brilliant. No longer is the largest news item for the Republicans Mark Sanford of South Carolina's adultery, but Palin's resignation. Not only that, but it has been a lightning rod once again for energy and chatter on the Right. Where the malaise of Obama was setting in, a resignation for defeat, her exit, if not inspiring, has been though provoking.

Personally, I think she should run for Congress in 2010, then see what happens in 2012. I'm no Palin fan boy, and I really was strongly opposed to her when McCain selected her, and every time I hear her speak in public or the radio my ears revolt violently, but she is a soaring star in the republican party, and primed for a national run in the future.

Independence Day

"Businessmen are the one group that distinguishes capitalism and the American way of life from the totalitarian statism that is swallowing the rest of the world.

All the other social groups- workers, farmers, professional men, scientists, soldiers- exist under dictatorships, even though they exist in chains, in terror, in misery, and in progressive self-destruction. But there is no such group as businessmen under a dictatorship. Their place is taken by armed thugs: by bureaucrats and commissars.

Businessmen are the symbol of a free society- the symbol of America.
-Ayn Rand, Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal
