If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Sarah Palin and Left along with Health Insurance Reform

Mrs. Palin gets attention because she is, at the moment, the only "star" within the Republican Party. The left hates here because she is everything they espouse...a woman who literally has it all, a career and a family. They see her as a danger to feminism because she is the embodiment of feminism, except for one small facet. She's not a liberal. Not only is she not a liberal, but she's an unadulterated conservative. Hence the hatred of her by the left.

Now, for "health care reform". It's not about "reform" but rather, it's about government seizure and control of yet more of the economy. It's not enough that the government controls banking and finance now (thanks to the ilconsidered banking TARP last fall/spring), or taking over of GM (and turning it over to UAW), now they want to control your health care.

The Democratic party wants to control the populace by controlling who gets health care and who doesn't. Largely because they obviously know how to run your life better than you do. I might have supported this if Congress and all federal employees were going to be covered by the "public option". But, unfortunately, they are specifically exempted from it.

Organized labour is FOR the public option, because they will then be able to dump all of their retirees into it, and thus avoid the huge liability that has built up over the past several decades. Organized labour's leadership has systematically looted their retirement and health insurance funds to pay off corrupt officials and enrich themselves. Now, they want the government to take over that liability freeing them for more looting...
