    “The fact that governments, state and federal, are involved in so much of the health care system is he reason why the price has skyrocketed. There isn’t any competition per se. You’re not in charge, and the consumer needs to be in charge of what is spent by that consumer for that consumer.” -Rush Linbaugh

    That is a bunch of BS, why is it the US has a much higher cost of health care then most other countries(and countries that have universal health care systems)

    Krugman Admits: We Need Death Panels

    Now, do you remember Obama and every other liberal going nuts over the accusation by Sarah Palin that there would be death panels? Everybody in the media, the Democrats went nuts and said there’s no such thing, and Palin was lying, and how dare she say this kind of thing? Remember there were promises under Obamacare that you’d be able to keep your doctor? If you like your plan, you get to keep your plan and your premium’s gonna go down by $2,000, $2,500. Do you remember all that? Because I do. And I’m sure you do, too. You keep your doctor if you like it. That isn’t gonna change. You keep your health plan if you like it. That isn’t gonna change. It already is. And your premiums are gonna drop by $2,500 a year.

    RUSH: Paul Krugman is an Obamaite, he’s an economist, he’s a Nobel Prize-winning economist, folks, which tells you everything you need to know about the Nobel Prize. The New York Times columnist, economist, took a few questions at a lecture that he gave last week, took a few questions from the audience. And one question was on America’s massive and rising national debt. And Krugman admitted that the debt will pose a problem, eventually, not yet. Not until we get the next Republican president will the debt be a problem. And he said he admitted it’s gonna be tough to pay for entitlement programs with an aging population and increasing health care costs.

    TIME Lays Off 500, Romney Blamed
    RUSH: We reported yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, TIME Inc., laying off 500 more employees. They’ve been laying people off at regular intervals, and yesterday was 500 new people laid off. Six percent of the TIME Inc., staff. One detail that we did not note, Bain & Co., the global management consulting firm where Mitt Romney once worked was involved in the layoffs. Ad Age is reporting that one of Laura Lang’s “first moves was to call a top-to-bottom review facilitated by consultants from Bain & Co., evaluating priorities, opportunities and trouble spots.”

    So we can say that Romney was involved in laying off 500 people at TIME Inc. Well, they said Romney was in charge of stuff that Bain was doing when he wasn’t there anymore. All during the campaign, the Democrats, whatever happened at Bain Capital, Romney did it. Even the guy whose wife died from cancer, Romney wasn’t even there when that happened, they blamed it on him. So we can say, that’s karma, ’cause now Bain Capital, which automatically means Romney, was instrumental in 500 people at TIME Inc. getting canned. I mean, this includes a bunch of people, could be People magazine, Sports Illustrated. You never know where they’re coming from.

    “If it weren’t for global warming, we wouldn’t even be talking about freezing temperatures, ice, snow, and sleet. But because of global warming, lives are at risk — and you need to take important, drastic action to save your life and the lives of your children, to say nothing of your pets.” -Rush Limbaugh

    “I don’t think any network other than Fox is covering the Chris Dorner case. Chris Dorner is the left-wing wacko inspired by Colin Powell, Chris Matthews, Anderson Cooper, and a bunch of left-wing actors. He is the former LA cop who’s on a killing spree.” -Rush limbaugh

    New York Times Commits Random Act of Journalism, Reports on Impact of Obama’s Payroll Tax Hike

    RUSH: There is a story in the New York Times — well, it’s the New York Times News Service. It ran in the New York Times and Boston Globe. It’s a really curious story. It’s a random act of journalism in the New York Times. Headline: “Many Feeling the Bite of Higher Payroll Tax, Including Business.” This is a story about how chain store sales are weakening, and consumer confidence is eroding. “At street level, the pain … is plain to see.” This is the New York Times with this story?

    Maxine Waters: Obama Has a Database on Everything About Every Individual

    RUSH: Here’s Maxine Waters. This was last Sunday on TV One’s Washington Watch with Roland Martin. Maxine Waters, Democrat from California. Her district is basically the Watts area of Los Angeles, and Roland Martin said, “The reality is like anything else, you’d better get what you can while Obama’s there because, look, come 2016, that’s it.” Now, what Roland Martin’s saying here is all of you who are looking for prosperity from the government, you better get it and get it now. Get it while you can, get it while Obama’s there, because come 2016, he’s not gonna be there, and then you’re gonna be on your own. You better get what you can get now. And here’s what Maxine Waters said in reply.

    WATERS: Well, you know, I don’t know. And I think some people are missing something here. The president has put in place an organization that contains the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. That’s going to be very, very powerful. That database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it’s never been done before.

    Tweet of Yesterday — David Burge: Washington is Downton Abbey. The media are the servants conniving to become First Footman.

    Mark, We had a political Aristocracies family that owns all thing we think are bad . It was bad times at ridge Mount High

  • Tony

    I totally agree with mark 2
    Foxtards? I love that!!
    Hannity I’ve watched twice.
    Once with Sara Palin and second time with
    Ann Coulter. Is that what the republicans have
    Turned into?? Sorry right, these are your people.

  • Tony

    Everyone unfortunately wants to see a car crash.
    I think that is what Fox is. They watch it for a
    Bit then change the channel. 1-3 million is tough
    To ever win any elections on a national level.
    I think the right is in big trouble going forward.

  • tony

    @Tony-The more the Dems win the more the US will look like our inner cities economically and socially…not a thing to cheer about.

    Jonah Goldberg had a interesting perspective of the left and water boarding in light of the excess of force with the Obama Drone killings:most terrorists would conclude water boarding is more humane than instant death.
