Government is not the answer… it is the problem

Hillary has revealed her 2.0 plan for health care for our country along with every other democrat running for president.  When will people realize that government is NOT the answer to our problems but is the problem.  Every time the government tries to make things more affordable they get more expensive.  Look at college tuition, as more and more people have been able to get grants and government loans, the cost of education has been rising faster than inflation and in many cases the quality has gone down.

If the government gives heath care to everyone, it will increase demand for the product and that will increase the cost of the product making it more expensive for everyone.  But, who cares about the real results as long as you can buy votes from people who are on the take.

By the way I find it truly hypocritical that John Edwards is pushing the same kinds of issues when he is almost single handedly responsible for pushing OB-GYN’s out of his state.  As an ambulance chaser he pushed up the cost of having a baby without improving anything but his own bottom line.

I am really tempted to vote for Hillary just to hurry up the collapse of this entitlement system we have created, then maybe we can get back to actually being productive.

  • I find it interesting that on “America’s got Talent” there are two Brits and one American determining if America’s got Talent.
  • The government as a whole refuses to allow people to suffer the ramifications of their bad decisions.  Stereotypically speaking the Republicans bail out ignorant businesses and the Democrats bail out ignorant individuals.  Why not allow people making bad decisions to serve as a lesson the rest of the country?
  • Why with such a promising future and all kinds of entertainment at his fingertips would Michael Vick be involved with dog fighting?
  • Researchers have discovered that a single grown moose can release as much methane as an 8077 mile car trip, will there be a call to eliminate moose for the sake of the environment?  Or will environmentalists have to admin that they just want to stifle humans.
  • Most people understand that a lot of money will buy you a better lawyer and hopefully less jail time.  But not it only appears that you have to be famous to have your time cut.  Nicole Ritchie only does 87 minutes of an already sad four day sentence?  It must be good to be part of that class of people, I wonder how long people will tolerate it.
  • I really wish Dr. No (Ron Paul) stood a chance at the Republican Presidential nomination.  He really supports what I stand for, but he won’t buy votes with taxpayer money so he probably doesn’t stand a chance.
  • I heard something today I had never heard before, music was pounding out of a car in the parking lot, not so rare you say?  It was Opera.
  • There are times when I just want to throw in the towel and move to a commune.  Really a farm where a group of people who are not a traditional family all live together produce what they need and just live a simple life.  What would that be like?

Harry Potter, the NYT and Treason

So the New York Times reviews Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  The nature of this review upsets J.K Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series.  The NYT apologizes for perhaps having spoiled the books for all of the fans.

Where is the apology for releasing top secret information about the war on terror?  I am a pretty big Potter head but I am still waiting for the apology from the times for aiding our enemies in the war and perhaps putting more of our troops in danger.

Does the NYT really believe that then end of Deathly Hallows deserves more respect than top secret information?  But I guess J.K Rowling has more of a spine than our President because at least she took it to the times instead of just sitting back and letting it happen.

Am I a bad American?

Forgive me while I wax political for a moment but I really am sick of the way things are going.  There are times when I feel like I am a traitor to my country because I simply think we are past the point of no return.  Years ago Professor Alexander Tytler made a statement I believe we are living out now, “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.”

  • Why is it that all the people who do these concerts to save the planet take their private jets that burn more fuel in one hour than my car does all year?
  • I am a little ashamed that my neighbors have made more active moves to talk to me than I have to them when I pray to God to help me practice hospitality to my neighbors.
  • How can liberal like Al Gore be so sure humans are the cause of our global warming when Pluto, Mars, and Venus are also warming?
  • Would it be worth it to most people to take a huge pay cut and hence a lifestyle cut to not hate going to work every day?
  • I have heard that a torture method used in WWII was to make prisoners dig a ditch and fill it back up making the men feel useless. Every night we clean up after our daughter putting her toys away and every day she wrecks the place again.
  • Why is it that people consider smoking a cigar or having a glass of wine a sin but gorging yourself at a buffet and is fine?
  • Is the Bible the only book we feel justified simply by reading without making any attempt to understand or digest what is has to say? I mean outside of high school lit class.
  • Why do I continue to work when it seems that the politicians are so anxious to take everything I have. If all of us who work hard just stopped who would pay for everything? Maybe we need a new Tea Party where we just all don’t go to work.

This is insane!!!

Have we seriously come to the point where any form of physical contact is considered bad?  Has anyone see Demolition Man, where they didn’t allow such a thing?  The world was turned into a giant wimp world.  Kids need to learn how to act properly and simply telling them no does not give them that opportunity, not to mention the studies showing how much people need physical contact.

This is another example of how stupid we are becoming as a scociety, people get hurt, people feel bad it happens part of life is learning how to deal with it properly we can not have a world that doesn’t offend anyone and still have freedom.

Short but sweet

I have to study for my first mid-term so I don’t have a ton of time but I wanted to put a few thoughts out there for now…

  1. If you were young enough to wear a fashion the first time it was popular don’t wear it when it comes back.
  2. My prayers may have been answered, it looks like Fred Thompson is going to run for President. If you aren’t sure who he is you it was a Prosecutor turned Senator turned actor, he is the DA on Law and order. He may be the only conservative in the race.
  3. It is really true that humans want legalism and religion by default? It seems that all new trends in Christianity that start as anti-legalism and anti-religion eventually end up with their legalism of their own breed.
  4. I have begun to get back into magic I did it for a little bit when I was in high school but haven’t really touched it since. There is something very special about that particular performance medium, there is that great feeling when the people you are performing for have to do the double take and you are the Prestige. (See the movie if you haven’t)
  5. Is it just me or is new wave music coming back?  All I hear on Launchcast seems to say it is, which is great if for no other reason than to get rid of that whiney emo crap.
