A Cure for Beiber Fever

I would never have thought I'd write a blog post with Justin Beiber's name in it. But he said something stupid that actually warrants it.

Asked if he'd ever consider becoming an American citizen, his response was, " You guys are evil!" He then went on to compare the American health care system to the Canadian health care.

He talked about his bodyguards wife going into labor early while in the US and is now upset that his bodyguard owes money. He said if they were in Canada that they could have stayed in the hospital for as long as needed and not owed a dime after leaving.

This claim needs to be tempered with the fact that in Canada, everyone pays for healthcare. Taxes are very high. Some as high as 85%. You also failed to take into account that quality of care is by far better here than in Canada.

Another factor is that most innovations and medicines in Canadian health care comes from the US developed on the back of each American patient that paid their bills and prescription costs because we don't get a discount. By law, an American drug company had to sell medicines at a large discount. So all the R&D costs are borne by American patients for the benefit of Canadian patients.

You depend on our "evil" health care system more than you realize, Beiber. Beiber fever has a cure and it's developed right here in American hospitals and laboratories.

The Domestic Failures: A Brief Look

Obamas Idea of Success on the Domestic Front

• Obama's current 2012 budget proposal increases taxes for Americans.
• There are cuts to certain government programs like Pell Grants.
• There are major increases to others like entitlements, education and raising interest rates on student loans.
• Overall, Obama did not cut the federal budget like he promised at his recent State of the Union. Instead, he will add to the federal debt.
• The federal debt now equals the entire economy of the US.
• A report today shows that the costs of clothing will increase by 10%.
• Gasoline prices have risen to over $3.00 per gallon.
• Electric car owners are now being assessed a road tax because since they don't buy gas, they don't pay the $0.35 gas tax used by the federal government for distributions to states for highway grants.
• Unemployment is still over 9%.
• Obamacare deemed unconstitutional yet without filing appeals, he continues to force this illegal legislation down Americas throats.
• The Obama Administration has been found in contempt of court over his illegal banning of offshore drilling.
• He flies the Chinese Communist flag over the White House celebrating Mao's birthday and the Communist Revolution.
• He promises to tell Russia everything about Britain's nuclear program without clearing with Americas oldest and best ally in the world.
• He has failed on more trade agreements that he has signed.

Leadership: Passing the Blame

On this weekends edition of Meet The Press, David Gregory tried his hand at asking the tough questions and showing complete disrespect to a duly elected conservative politician.

If only the Main Stream Media could ever take a hard stand against Obama and the liberal machine, they may garner some respect from the average American.

Case in point, the MSM is madly in love with Obamacare. Yet, the CBO has acknowledged that Obamacare will raise the national debt by billions and will cost thousands upon thousands of health care jobs.

But no one in MSM will take Obama, Pelosi and Reid to task on this. No one will challenge them.

Instead, John Boehner gets grilled by David Gregory on whether Boehner takes a stand against the doubts concerning Obama's religion and citizenship.

Obama himself could dispel these doubts but he refuses to do the simple things it takes to do so. Failing to have done so the last two years has shown an extreme lack of leadership and responsibility on Obamas part.

As for the doubts on his religion, the Bible says we will know a persons faith by his actions. Obama has shown a great deal of intolerance for Christians and have given radical islamists a pass. His embracing the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt even as they are currently killing Christians is deplorable and intolerable.

His lack of support for Southern Sudan's vote for independence his very telling, especially when we learn that Southern Sudan is predominately Christian.

Obama only has himself to blame for counters of his birth and faith. Talking heads like David Gregory are defending Obama without basis. There is no solid proof made available as to his place of birth. There is no evidence of his faith other that being a Muslim sympathizer at the very least. Mr. Gregory, if you want leadership on these two subjects, why don't you ask Obama to prove without a doubt his citizenship? Why don't you ask for a copy of the "Long Form" Birth Certificate? Why don't you ask him why he has attended a Christian Church service since Jeremiah Wright was his pastor? Why don't you ask him why all of his thesis and dissertation papers from his university days are scrubbed from the Internet and the only proof we Ben have he attended is other classmates? The leadership failure isn't House Speaker John Boehner's, it's President Barak Hussein Obama's failure.

A Tribute to President Ronald Wilson Reagan

Happy Birthday President Ronald Reagan.

Your ideals, vision, temperament and grand outlook for America is matched by none.

Although the socialist element in this country is trying so hard to co-opt your ideology, we know you never saw socialism as a solution, but the problem.

We still believe in a smaller government, we believe in America's greatness.

It's our hope that the next administration will realize the truth, the idealism and the greatness of America and will work to spread that across this great globe.

May God keep you. May God bless America.

It's Criminal

In my opinion, the Obama Administration has seriously flawed foreign relations and may even be criminal.

Case points:
•Refused to get involved when Iranian citizens protested for freedoms and democracy.

•Instead of choosing to support democracy protests, they supported the Muslim Brotherhoods involvement in government. They have steadily betrayed Hosni Mubarak who has ruled for 30 years without serious abuses to human rights. Obviously a full democracy is the best solution we should support and with proper US influence, we could have steered Egypt to that without bloodshed.

•Recent WikiLeaks documents show this administration is now guilty of espionage by agreeing to share Britain's nuclear secrets with Russia.

This should be an impeachable offense.

I would encourage the senate to start impeachment proceedings as soon as possible. Although unlikely since Harry "The Racist" Reid is still in charge in the senate chamber.
