Obama's Report Card: Egypt and HCR

The 2010 midterm elections were an indictment on the Obama Administration.

Americans voted for hope and change. Optimism was high. America had just elected her first African-American president.

Al Sharpton admitted when voters elected Obama, they voted FOR socialism.

We saw a health care reform that no one but the President and his party leaders wanted. Not even businesses and unions that fought for it actually wanted it judging by the 722+ waivers issued since its passage.

We got a food safety bill that did nothing for food safety and plenty for Monsalto.

We got minimal tax cuts and had to fight to save the one tax cut that truly was effective.

Now two judges, at least one a federal judge has ruled that health care reform is unconstitutional. I don't see how they could have ruled any other way but these days you just never know.

The first ruling came out of Florida and apparently the judged was persuaded by the individual mandate. Although about 95% of the rest was also unconstitutional, the ruling concerned the mandate. It is also nice to see that the ruling suggested the entire HCR be suspended.

Another ruling was from Virginia. I just heard about it and have no other information. I haven't even been able to verify it with my sources so no comment on that ruling.

If Obama wants to save his presidency from a Carter legacy, he should decisively drop this package and give the Republican House of Reps a chance to swing the bat. He should also not only extend the Bush Tax cuts, he should make them permanent.
He should reverse the passage of the socialist food safety bill. He should take a decisive stand on Egyptians desire for freedom, democracy reform and economic freedoms before the Muslim Brotherhood, a terror organization, completely and successfully co-opts the uprising. They have already strategically embraced Muhammed ElBaradei, a critic of the US, and supposedly will form a unity government. Already word on Arab street is the Egyptian citizens are not completely happy with ElBaradei, so this gives the US a chance still to show the Egyptians we stand with them. They deserve to be free. They deserve to control their own destiny. The deserve a corruption-free electoral process.

They deserve the support of the United States.

Right to Life

I have long wondered where in the Constitution the leftists say allows for abortions.

The Declaration of Independence, the document the colonies used to declare independence from Britain, says we have the "...right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

It's interesting to also note that the three dots in my above quote represent the phrase, all men are created by the Creator and endowed with certain inalienable rights.

I have read the entire US Constitution. No where have I seen anything that grants rights of abortions.

I've put this challenge out there in many other forums. No one has yet to answer.

Can any of my loyal and intelligent readers guide me to the article, section and/or amendment that grants the rights to abortions?

HCR Puts Patients at Risk

In previous posts, I predicted the outcome of Obamacare. Sadly, too many came true.

Now I will explain just how this socialist, unconstitutional law is destroying your healthcare and putting your health at risk.

1. Reprocessing- certain supplies were meant to be used on a single patient and then disposed of in a manner to reduce exposure to the general public. For instance, in surgery we use devices called laparoscopic cannulas. These are used with a camera and instruments to perform surgeries like laparoscopic cholecystectomies (gall bladder removals) or appendectomies (removal of diseased appendix). In order to save money, companies are popping up that promises to take these used supplies and clean them for a third of the costs of the same product but new. How is this bad? What if the cannulas aren't properly re-processed and you as a patient gets a cannula used on a hepatitis or HIV/AIDS patient. Now you are at risk of hepatitis or aids. The cannulas are just one example. There are hundreds of medical items intended for single patient, single use that are being reprocessed and reused on more than one patient. This only happened in third world countries.

2. Health Care Providers- Hospitals either aren't hiring, or in the case of those that are, they are hiring less trained and qualified providers because they can pay them less. More doctors are coming from India, Pakistan, or some other third world country to practice medicine. Many pre-med students changed from medical school to just about any other profession. So to fill this vacuum, doctors are being recruited and offered H1B visas to practice medicine in the US.

3. Cutting Benefits- Hospitals are cutting benefits to their employees or forcing them to pay more out if pocket premiums to keep their current plans. These cuts are also met with higher deductibles so now we have health care providers that can't afford health care themselves.

4. Service Cuts- Hospitals are cutting services to eliminate those that do not provide reimbursement in favor of only those that do. This will eventually result in patients having to commute to find the rare MRI or get certain services that improves their quality of life.

It is with great pride I tell you that I am a health care worker. I really love what I do. I only take a paycheck because I have bills. Otherwise, I'd do it for free. I opposed HCR because I am afraid the high quality of care we provide everyday for our patients will no longer be possible. I know there were issues with the system but HCR went way too far and 'fixed' problems that did not exist. Forcing parents to carry their adult children on their insurance until the age of 26 regardless of whether they have a job with insurance or married or in the military is backward and costly. Forcing patients with FSA's to have a prescription for cold medicine before being able to buy OTC cold medicine with their FSA Debit Cards actually increases the costs of health care.

The House of Representatives just passed health care reform repeal. It is critical we expose what HCR is causing hospitals to do in order to cut costs to the senate. This has got to be repealed. It costs us jobs, quality of care and clean, sterile supplies. You are at risk. Hospitals are reprocessing supplies already. Patients are having items intended for single use recleaned and used on them today. Risks are already being taken with your health.

MLK Day

On this, Martin Luther King Day, DWM wants to express our support for The Dream.

Dr King believed in a non-violent path to healing and improving race relations in this country.

It is our hope that one day, his dream will be fully realized.

God created the human race, man created racism. Dr King realized that with awareness and peaceful solutions, change can and will happen.

Over the years, a lot has changed. But sadly, the dream is still not fully realized.

We believe the only way to complete the journey is to stop politicizing race and hindering real solutions to real problems. Too many politicians have hijacked civil rights for their own personal gains by offering solutions they know will not work but look good on paper.

It is our dream that The Dream will continue in a positive manner and continue to produce positive results.

My favorite Dr King quote:
"An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."

H. J. Res. 17

It is with absolute disgust that I write this blog post.

Rep. Serrano (D-NY) has introduced House Joint Resolution 17 for the purpose of amending the constitution to end Presidential term limits.

This is a blatant attempt to install Barack Obama into office for life. This is a Hugo Chavez style bill. Obama has already ruled by decree. This Resolution, should it pass, is the first step to a tyrannical government much like Chavez's Venezuela or Hitlers Germany.

This is a bill Joseph Stalin would be proud of. The next step is gulags and mass exterminations of peasants and undesirables.

This bill is designed to repeat a history not worthy of repetition.

I encourage you to contact your house and senate delegation and in words that cannot be mistaken for anything else, condemn this bill.

In other times, I would think this bill didn't have a chance. But in today's political climate, you just never know.

Do not take chances. Take action immediately. It was a lack of grassroots action that got us health care reform and a lack of it that almost cost us our Bush Tax Cut Extensions. Don't let this happen again.

History of Assassinations by Left-Wing Radicals

With all the talk about right wing rhetoric leading to the Tucson Massacre, I decided to look into assassinations of Presidents in the US and the political affiliations of the assassins.

Abraham Lincoln - the first US President to be assassinated. Shot by John Wilkes Booth, a radical Southern Democrat that vehemently fought FOR slavery as most democrats had done. It was the official democrat party mission to preserve the institution of slavery at all costs.

James A Garfield - Shot by Charles J. Guiteau. Political affiliation could not be determined. Appears he shot Garfield out of misplaced frustration with his employment status and being denied a meeting with the President.

William McKinley - assassinated by an anarchist named Leon Czolgosz.

John F Kennedy - Assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald, a pro-Cuban communist and ultra left wing radical. Kennedy was a moderate democrat. In today's political climate, he would be considered a blue dog democrat, just like Gabrielle Giffords.

There are many attempts and two Presidents died of disease now suspected of being intentionally infected by food contamination.

It is also peculiar that most of the Presidents assassinated were Republican. The lone exception being John F Kennedy.

With the exception of one assassin, they were radical left wing zealots. The one assassin not considered left wing did not assassinate for political reasons. He was distressed and unemployed. After asking for a meeting with President Garfield, he was denied and felt rebuffed and offended.

One attempt was made on George H. W. Bush. In the employ of Saddam Hussein, sixteen men attempted to kill the former President in Kuwait for his intervention in Iraq's invasion and annexation of Kuwait.

Several attempts on George W. Bush were also made. One resembled the same model used to assassinate an Afghan freedom fighter. Assassins posing as reporters attempted to gain access to Bush on 9-11-2001 at 6:00 AM. It was only after the attacks of 9-11 did anyone in the secret service realize the possibility of an attempt modeled after the Ahmed Mahmoud assassination.

There were two threats made on Candidate Obama. One by a trio of white supremacists who were known meth addicts. The cavalier attitude of the men gave their plot away and they had no real chance of carrying it out. They planned to commit the act in Denver at the DNC. Another plot in Tennessee was also part of a larger plot to kill more African Americans.

The Rush to Judgement II


The Rush to Judgement II

The Rush to Judgement

The DogWalksMan blog abhors the violent acts committed yesterday that left Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords critically wounded and six people dead, including a 9 year old girl and a federal judge.

DWM equally abhors the rhetoric and rush to judgement by left wing blogs and news agencies.

As much as these bloggers and news sources wanted to place blame on Sara Palin, the Tea Party as well as talk radio, the alleged gunman is actually a far left wing extremist with severe mental instability.

Last I heard, Mrs Palin is in Alaska and not in Arizona.

The Tea Party is not a political organization with a particular political ideology. It is a grassroots movement interested in returning the federal government to its Constitutional limits and believes these goals can be accomplish with debate and legislative actions.

Gabby Giffords is a moderate Democrat that espouses several beliefs and ideologies the Tea Party supports. Rep. Giffords would be considered a friend by the Tea Party in the Democratic Caucus.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Rep. Giffords, the families of the deceased and the recovering victims. It is our hope that justice is swift, firm and decisive in this matter.

Jared Lee Loughner may have had an accomplice and we also hope that if he did, that person will also be caught and stand for his role in this most heinous act.

Open Letter to Westboro Baptist Church

Rev. Fred Phelps,

You and your 'congregation' at Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, KS are disgusting, vile creatures.

Your support of Jared Loughner and his attempted assassination of Gabby Giffords and the murders of six innocent people, including a nine year old girl, goes beyond the scope of rational human thinking.

You are a closet homosexual just like Hitler. You are a sinner of the worst kind- you don't even think you are a sinner and you condemn people for doing what you yourself are doing.

I believe you may have been involved in Saturdays events by providing mental support and encouragement. I believe you may have also provided material support. I even wonder if you may have provided the gun and ammunition.

Your "church" is a cesspool of heresy and should lose the tax benefits of a church considering your congregation is your immediate family and no 'outsiders' are allowed to attend.

Your history of child abuse should disqualify your 'church' from existence.

Your provisions of aid and comfort to the enemy and support of this nations enemies is despicable.

I despise you. I can't wait for your demise and hope I can be a witness before God on your actions and know, after reading and studying my Bible, you will be cast into the lake of fire. You deserve so much worse.

Your moral compass is pointing to the gates of haedes.

Gabrielle Giffords

Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) was shot today in Arizona.
Although her condition is critical, doctors are hopeful for her recovery.

A 22 year old Jared Laughner is being held for the shooting. So far, five people are known to have died including a 9 year old girl and a federal judge.

Laughner appears to be a communist, socialist and upset about the state of education and monetary policy. His ramblings, riddled with bad grammar, bad spelling and poor sentence structure underscores his dismay in the educational system.

At DWM, we counted Rep. Giffords as a friend of the unborn, the second amendment and of stronger border security. She is considered a moderate, blue dog democrat.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family and the other victims and their families.
