Still Blaming Bush

***This guy is unbelievable. I wonder if he will ever man up and take responsibility for anything? The economy is all yours, Obama and Democrats, all yours. Be a man for once and own it.

The so-called Bush tax cuts, which were almost passed in the last century, are being vilified by the Obama administration as having busted the government budget and led to unsustainable deficits. The president might want to consult his own economic advisers, whose data suggest otherwise.

Read the whole thing. There is some really good information there.

***From Politics for Average Americans:

 Who goes to school to become poor? Who becomes a professional to earn less money? Who spends countless hours building a small business or earning salaries or hourly wages to lose the rewards? Who spends years after college doing graduate work to improve the chances for a promotion in hopes of acquiring fewer assets over a lifetime? So far, the only person I can find is Barack Obama.
 
With the latest proposal for a “Wealth Tax,” the president has taken a position never seen before under our Constitutional form of government. In pertinent part, the 5th Amendment guarantees that no person shall “be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
 
When a person works an entire lifetime to build security for his or her family and the government arbitrarily takes the fruits of that labor to provide for public entitlement programs, that is unconstitutional. The entire argument has no basis in American law.


Indeed. However, our president and his party have shown that they have nothing but disdain for American law which prevents them from doing whatever they please.

Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’. Until now, end of life regime the Liverpool Care Pathway was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill adults. But the Mail can reveal the practice of withdrawing food and fluid by tube is being used on young patients as well as severely disabled newborn babies.

This is where the Democrats are taking us, people. Open your eyes.

***2/3 of millionaires left Britain to avoid tax hike. Well, duh. I would, too.

***George H.W. Bush in stable condition. Godspeed, Mr. President.

Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush remains in stable condition at a Houston hospital, but a lingering cough related to bronchitis likely will keep him there through the weekend.

Methodist Hospital spokesman George Kovacik said Saturday there is no change in the status of the 88-year-old Bush from earlier in the week. But Jim McGrath, a spokesman for the 41st president, said "he still has the cough and we're now not expecting him to be discharged this weekend."

President Obama and Mitt Romney had lunch together at the White House today. In fact, Romney offered to buy Obama lunch but the president said, "No, no it’s on our grandchildren. They’ll take care of it. Don’t even worry about it."

***Wow. 

Family Never Left Side of Coma Victim for 42 Years

From NBC News...a story of true love:apromise.gif

A woman who lived in a coma for 42 years, meticulously cared for by her family, died Wednesday in her home in Miami Gardens, Fla., the Miami Herald reported.

Edwarda O’Bara was a 16-year-old high school student in 1970 when she became sick from her diabetes medication and slipped into a diabetic coma.

According to the Herald, just before she lost consciousness, Edwarda asked her mother, Kaye O’Bara, to never leave her side, and her family never did.

Edwarda’s father, Joe O’Bara, and Kaye took care of their daughter — reading to her, playing her music, making sure she was turned every two hours, bathed, given insulin and given nourishment through a feeding tube — until their deaths in 1976 and 2008, respectively. After that, Edwarda’s sister Colleen O’Bara took over.

The family’s story inspired the 2001 book, "A Promise Is A Promise: An Almost Unbelievable Story of a Mother’s Unconditional Love and What It Can Teach Us" and a song called "My Blessed Child," and it prompted people from around the world to travel to her Florida home.

"She taught me so much, and I’m talking about now, after she was in the coma," Colleen O’Bara told the Herald. "She taught me so much about unconditional love that I couldn’t say I had it before. She taught me about patience that I didn’t have before."

In an announcement of Edwarda's death posted Thursday on a website dedicated to her, Colleen O'Bara wrote: "Yesterday while taking care of Edwarda I noticed her looking directly at me and gave me the biggest smile I had ever seen. She then closed her eyes and joined my Mom in Heaven."

Edwarda O’Bara was 59.

  1. I never hear the media or the administration refer to tax cuts during the previous administration as simply "Bush Tax Cuts." It is always "Bush Tax Cuts for the Wealthy." I am offended by that. It implies that specific rules were enacted for one economic class - the wealthy. This is simply not true.

    Any tax breaks we as Americans enjoyed over the last decade were applicable to all Americans, not just the wealthy. Arguing that there should have been no tax advantages at all for anyone is a fair argument, even if one does not agree. Arguing that President Bush made decisions that someone does not agree with is fair. Disagreement is healthy in a democracy. However, manufacturing propaganda to secure the votes of the pitifully uninformed is anti-American.

  2. And the pitifully biased mainstream media has a lot to do with the pitifully uninformed. That's no excuse, though. You & I make the effort to find out the truth, so could everyone else if they weren't more interested in who's getting kicked off Dancing with the Stars.
