Note to Self

As an explanation of the current radio silence on this blog and as a Note to Self:
I am no longer able to stay up to 2am drinking wine with 26 year olds. Stop doing it!

My husband's lovely cousin and her equally lovely friend are leaving today. After a solid night's sleep, I will resume blogging.

I do apologize for the lack but not for having too much fun with two lovely girls.

Oh, and by the way, the entire Senate is an epic fail for even considering the possiblity of Obamacare. Shame on them!

That's how long I must stay not just trapped in the house but by the phone waiting for the Sears repairman to come. Once, I had to "use the facilities," missed the we-are-coming phone call and had my appointment pre-emptively cancelled.

And of course, if I wait to vigilantly by the phone I will be the last repair stop on the man's list. Ugh! I do not (heart) Sears right now.

Obamacare Daily Round-Up 10-12

Baucus Bill Encourages Americans to DROP Insurance Coverage

Obamacare - Fewer Options, Higher Costs.

The Tax on High-End Insurance Policies. Apparently 87% of the tax revenue from this policy will come from people earning under $200,000 aka YOU.

'Conceptual language' hides health care's cost

Dems scramble after warning from health insurers

No one should support Obamacare. Dole, a health sector lobbyist, gets the statesman treatment

Pro-Life Democrats Seek to Block Health Bill if Pelosi Won’t Allow Vote on Amendment Barring Abortion Funding. Your tax dollars paying for an unborn child to die. Great.

Random Round-Up

Can't hurt. Pelosi Key to GOP 2010 Playbook. Republicans Hope Linking House Speaker to Democrats Can Turn Centrist Districts.

About. Damn. Time. Black Republicans Say 2010 Will Be Their Year. Allen West, a retired Army colonel who is running for the second time against Democratic Rep. Ron Klein in Florida's 22nd congressional district, West, is one of a small but determined group of black Republicans running for seats in the U.S. Senate or House of Representatives in 2010.

Civility and Its Discontents

"Britain continues its descent into a socialist hell"

This is a glimpse of our future. If in 12 years, the socialist Labour Party can do this to one of the freest countries in Europe, then it could happen, is happening, here.


My deeply patriotic British husband came home from a trip to England a few days ago heart-broken at the state of affairs over there.

It would take 20 Margaret Thatchers just to bring Britain back to normalcy.

Of course, it could be worse. It could be France. In Paris Without Papers, and Seeking Visibility

Fox v. Obama

Fox’s Volley With Obama Intensifying.

The above is from the New York Times which has become so disillusioned with Obama that Fox News is depicted as merely conservative and evil rather than Pure Evil because it doesn't bow before The One.

Sign of the times. WH communications director: Fox News operates as ‘a wing of the Republican Party.’

Of course, it is spectacularly stupid of Obama to pick a fight with a 24-Hour News Channel.

Obama is not the only stupid democrat around. Al Gore & The Death of Journalism

Oh and Pew validated Fox News' "Fair and Balanced" claim:
As for Dunn's complaint about Fox News' coverage of the Obama campaign, a study by the Pew Research Center showed that 40 percent of Fox News stories on Obama in the last six weeks of the campaign were negative. Similarly, 40 percent of Fox News' stories on Obama's Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, were negative.

On CNN, by contrast, there was a 22-point disparity in the percentage of negative stories on Obama (39 percent) and McCain (61 percent). The disparity was even greater at MSNBC, according to Pew, where just 14 percent of Obama stories were negative, compared to a whopping 73 percent of McCain stories -- a spread of 59 points.

Spotty Blogging

I want to blog but I also must prepare for my daughter's birthday (party, cake presents, relatives visiting, etc.) so my blogging will be spotty for the next few days.

To give you an idea of why, please enjoy these photos of cakes I have made for my children over the years. They are completely edible and entirely (obviously) homemade.

And yes, I am the best mommy ever.

In Economic Woes 10-11

When it Comes to Small Business, Obama Just Doesn’t Get It

Top Economist Says Unemployment Could Peak at 10.5 Percent. Mark Zandi warns on "FOX News Sunday" that the recovery will continue to be "halting" and "fragile," backing up estimates from other economists that show unemployment peaking next summer and hovering above 8 percent four years down the road.

Obama urges creation of agency to regulate financial industry. With a key vote nearing, the president slams banks and business groups, saying they want only "to maintain the status quo that has maximized their profits at the expense of American consumers."

Top Judge Calls Calif. Government ‘Dysfunctional’
Reader Response from Instapundit:
Reader William Harrington emails:
In your post you comment that the judge is stating the obvious in calling California government dysfunctional. But it’s important to note that he apparently doesn’t consider the elected officials to be dysfunctional. Instead, he blames the voters. Government is dysfunctional in the judge’s eyes principally because California voters, using the referendum process, created a requirement of a supermajority to raise taxes and consequently “California’s lawmakers, and the state itself, have been placed in a fiscal straitjacket by a steep two-thirds-vote requirement — imposed at the ballot box — for raising taxes.”

It apparently didn’t occur to the judge that Californians might not want to make it easy for their legislature to enact confiscatory taxes, or that California’s fiscal mess could be resolved through cuts to profligate spending rather than to continue to shovel ever-increasing amounts of taxpayer dollars into government’s gaping maw. Rather, he sees the voters and the referendum process as impediments to unrestrained government spending.

It’s astonishing to see how many of our public officials appear to be firmly convinced that the people work for the government, and not the other way around.
Excellent point. And it would seem that Justice Ronald George has raised questions about his ability to rule fairly in questions involving ballot initiatives.

Tea partiers turn on GOP leadership. It's is pathetic and wrong to think of TEA Partiers as partisan. They are not fighting for conservatives or liberals, they are fighting for the American Values of individual responsibility, personal responsibility, personal freedom, and lower taxes. They are not fighting for anyone on the Right or the Left, they are fighting for what is right.

The Glimpse Of Our Future Is Now. Fined for Inadequate Insurance AND It's a Jab or Your Job.

The truth about the Baucus bill - Part 1

Fattening the Nanny State. Trust me, it is not about providing the uninsured with healthcare (if it were Obamacare would look VERY different). This is about controlling Americans' behavior at every level - public and private behavior. Legal and illegal behavior. What we choose to buy, choose to eat, choose to drink. Where we choose to work, travel, and live. Everything.
