This blog consists mostly of common sense responses to happenings (news articles, political events, etc) that just cry out for someone to say "WHOA! Hang on a second, here!" Too many people get away with just inventing their own facts as they bull-rush their way through an argument.

Unless you're dodging a taxicab or sidestepping a falling gargoyle, it's usually wise to take what time is available to evaluate and apply actual common sense. Good, old wisdom. It is, of course, my opinion, but I'll try to show why I think it's factual.
Thomas Paine said, "To argue with someone who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead." ... but I argue with drunks, egomaniacs, anti-gun Statists, Socialist/Keynesians and climate-fraud peddlers, too.

Fact vs Prejudice

A letter to the editor,“Tea Party racist” (Chino Champion, Nov. 20) shows the unfortunate result of Progressive Socialists' re-writing of history and their undue influence in our schools.  I’m sure that the author is sincere, but his “facts” are all fabricated.  Not his fault; most were “revised” before he was born.

His “fact” that David Duke (former Grand Wizard, not just “KKK member”) “supports the Tea Party”, proving them racist, is wrong on many points.  First, the many Tea Parties and related groups are independent and have open membership.  Second, a guilty person saying that they “support” someone does not create guilt in the second person.  Third, while Duke did try to infiltrate conservatives for his racist ends, he and NAZI allies were discovered and banned a year ago.  Further, their taint caused two major southwestern rallies to be canceled, since we could not guarantee that they would not show up anyway.  We shouted down the only racist (white guy yelling at blacks) that I ever saw at a rally.

The Author's “fact” that the Founding Fathers were all slave owners (the usual line is, “rich, white racists”) who carried out the “genocide of Native Americans”.  First, most Founders were neither rich, nor slave owners, but working people.  Most slave owners were southern delegates.  They threatened to boycott the Declaration and Constitution if strong language against slavery was not removed.  Fragmenting would have doomed the tiny, new nation.  It took decades and the sacrifice of nearly a million Americans (some black, Hispanic, Native American) to finish off slavery.  Even then, Southern Democrats resisted freedom, making the 13th, 14th , and 15th Amendments necessary.  Even then, Democrats (like George Wallace) resisted blacks’ rights until Progressive Socialists co-opted the DNC and taught them to USE rather than openly suppress minorities.  Others like Margaret Sanger created the “Negro Project” to wipe out that race, and such eugenic filth evolved into “Planned Parenthood” (destroying of millions of minority babies) and Hitler’s copy: National Socialism.  The Native American tragedy was very complex and badly handled by all, but was resisted most by what later became “Republicans”.

Disease, by the way, was the single greatest killer of Native Americans, and foreign microbes don’t care if you are a welcoming friend or genocidal racist, red, white, brown, black or yellow.

The author says that his imaginary, monolithic Tea Party was “bred” (like a herd of interrelated cattle? sounds racist to me) to believe “this country is only theirs”.  With names like Woo, Smith, Singh, Lutcherding, Seghdi, Goldfarb, Tran, Riley, and Tenerowicz, we know that America was built by immigrants.  Even “Native Americans” aren’t native; they just arrived many generations earlier.  Conservatives simply want orderly entry, since we can’t absorb even 1% of the 5.7 billion that want in. Being within walking distance doesn’t make it better and cannot grant "dibbies" on legal status.  Hordes of undeclared, unskilled, unchecked (disease, criminality, terrorist ties, contraband) invaders will simply crush our society, without even helping the immigrants.  In fact, illegal immigrants are among the most abused on earth; abused by their smugglers.

People should do their own research, keeping in mind that original sources (diaries, letters, contemporary records, etc) are better than revisionist inventions (you’ll find lots of those).  Don’t take the word of history, social, or economic "experts" or so-called mainstream media (or even FOX) without checking.  Finally, try talking to people before spreading leftist “facts” about them.

Obama did not mention Dr. Donald Berwick for Medicare/Medicaid commissar for months.  Then he did not nominate his long-time pick for the post  until Congress was headed out the door.  Obama then presentedhisnameandissuedarecessappointmentwhileexpressinghisfrustrationoverRepublicanobstruction.  To his credit, Donald (he hates that name and insists on "Don") does not feign centrism, but openly touts the British system - which Brits hate and escape when they can afford to travel to the U.S. for serious medical help - and acknowledges that there will be massive rationing, that government decision makers will control what your doctor can prescribe for your treatment, that the whole point is the redistribution of wealth and it's aim is the destruction of capitalism.  Oh, and free medical care, there's medical, doctor stuff in their somewhere, too.  Gosh, I can't think why Obama would have intentionally withheld this guy's nomination just so that he could be slipped in under "recess appointment".  [I actually can tell you exactly why (he's so mindlessly ideological that even Obama could see he'd never pass); that was just humorous irony]

In any case, Berwick is being examined 6 months later in the Senate Finance Committee, still under the Leftist thumb of Sen Max Baucus (D). Today's intro is limited to about an hour in a crowded lame-duck session.  There is little they can do about him, but it is predicted that he will spend considerable time testifying about the convoluted and shadowy financing of nationalized health care in the future.

Let's see what Doktor Berwick, who espouses Progressive (aka Fabian) Socialist ideology has to say for himself:

And finally, Doktor Sebilius responds to Berwick's statement that, "The decision is not whether we will have rationing, the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open."  The HHS Czarina dodges the question with a long, drippy endorsement of Berwick in general, then states that it was her response:

...this guy is downright creepy in his presentation of "medicine".  The sooner his agency is defunded out of existence and his appointment is repealed altogether, the better.
