How govt. works: problem: 40 million without insurance! Solution : Disrupt entire healthcare system. Force those who have insurance to pay lots more for much worse coverage. 10 million lose their current insurance in initial stages of plan implimentation. Now 50 million without coverage! 8 million sign up under govt plan! Govt declares rousing success! Stupid average American citizen looking at these figures wondering: If you start with 40 M, do all of the above in order to get them covered and improve the the others coverage while saving everybody huge sums of money how can anything under 100 million be called a success?

Invest in middle class families? WTF does that mean? So far their investments have lowered income, raised health care costs, raised energy costs, made the rich richer and the poor poorer! The new economics? More of the same! Insanity!!!

Undocumented is an out and out lie! Anyone in any of the border states who hires sees more documentation from illegals than from citizens. The IRS issues them a ITIN. Most also have a SSN. Many file for things like child tax credits under both and collect double. Drive through any latino nieghborhood and you will se the little store fronts advertising notery, income tax, and the like. These are the neighborhood advisers who make a handsome living instructing illegals how to game the system that is set up to be gamed! The correct name is "illegally documented aliens"

He knows about them. They have such small audiences that this reenforces the point of the article!
was born in the 30's. Throughout he 40's nd 50's the predictions for the future were rosy and positive. Futuristic transportation, buildings, homes, and space were all positive! Then in the 60's as many of these dreams were actually occuring it was as if a switch was turned and the intellectual/scientific community suddenly inundated us with doom and gloom predictions! None, not one, of these predictions came true as humanity adjusted....the new ice age failed to materialize....massive food shortages did not kill off whole nations....acid rain did not end civilization....we did not run out of oil.....And the 21st century is well under way! All of these and many more false alarms were presented as scientific fact from deep thinkers. And all would require massive government intervention to protect us! Nothing new under the sun!
Trophies for all! Free college for those that EARN it. I smell a rat!

But ask any avowed leftist and they will tell you the answer to all market problems is more govt. regs. That is how you control those evil corporations. By using even more evil govt. to control it?
Although the teachers unions will deny it most people agree that our public education system is a shell of what it once was and dismal in comparison to others countries that use to look up to our standards. Higher education has also suffered in both results and cost as government has gotten more and more involved. One of the few segments of education that still gives a lttle bang for you buck is the community colleges. Anything provided by central governmentends up over priced und under perfoming.
Obama has a plan alright! If a crisis involving Islam arises try to steal the headlines to distract people from noticing! So today in the midst of this latest muslim outrage he anounces he ..not the government....but he is going to provide 2 more years of public schooling to all! Don't worry the rich will pay for it!
