    The problem with the healthcare debate is that it’s really not even about healthcare anymore. It has evolved. What was once a debate about the Utopian goal of covering millions more people with better care at less cost---a quixotic errand if there ever was one---has given way to the real show: will Obama crack if he fails? The healthcare debate has evolved into a test of wills between a petulant child trying to get his way long after his exasperated parents have said NO. Our young narcissist-in-chief gave a good speech last night, but no less was expected. He gives...

    The shadowy internet group known as Anonymous has hacked into the prime minister's website to protest over proposed internet censorship reforms. An Attorney-General's Department spokesperson confirmed to ninemsn the Prime Minister's website was taken down at 7.25pm last night, but said the site was operational again "within minutes". "Visitors to the site received a service unavailable error," the spokesperson said in a statement. "There was no unauthorised access to site infrastructure."

    As I watched the tea party protests and crowded town halls, I couldn't help but think of President Reagan. For millions of us, the dismal Carter era sparked a similar political awakening, and Ronald Reagan was the key. He wasn't the source of our new vision, but he knew the source and pointed the way. He understood the trials ahead, and regularly explained them to us. Back then, most young Americans – like so many today – didn't understand what had happened to our country. We didn't fully realize the nature of "liberalism" (especially those of us who were Democrats)...

    Tens of thousands of refugees are fleeing a vicious civil war that threatens to turn the key Arab peninsula state of Yemen into a terrorist stronghold and to suck the US into another sensitive conflict zone. Yemen's Zaidi rebels, allegedly shows members of the group, that is also known as al-Huthis. The Yemeni government is to try to subdue a rebel Shia army in the north of the country. Its assault is meeting fierce resistance, with the Yemeni air force staging desperate forays to pound the rebels into submission.

    It is almost irresistible for conservatives to snicker as Democrats in Massachusetts hold hearings and seek ways to justify an attempt to change the law in Massachusetts to allow the Democratic governor of the Commonwealth to appoint a Democratic senator--presumably available to vote for President Obama's initiatives. It was just a few years ago when Senator John Kerry was running for president and the governor was a Republican that the Democratic state legislature thought it imperative to change the law to prevent governors from appointing senators. It is just too delicious, the hypocrisy too obvious, for conservatives to ignore. Yet...

    The press questioned Thursday whether military force should have been used to rescue a journalist held hostage in Afghanistan, after his assistant, two civilians and a British soldier were killed. And the death of a soldier in the raid sparked anger in the army here, the Daily Telegraph said, after claims Farrell brushed aside security advice by venturing into a Taliban stronghold. "When you look at the number of warnings this person had it makes you really wonder whether he was worth rescuing, whether it was worth the cost of a soldier's life," a senior army source told the Telegraph.

    A homosexual man is suing a third national Bible publisher for "mental anguish" after he says the company published Bibles with a negative connotation toward homosexuals. Bradley LaShawn Fowler of Canton, Mich., alleges William Tyndale Publishing manipulated Scripture when it published Tyndale’s New Living Translation Holy Bible and the New Life Application Study Bible by using the term "homosexuals" in a New Testament passage, 1 Corinthians 6:9. "One Bible dictates homosexuals will not inherit the Kingdom of God, while the other is completely void on the issue altogether," Fowler wrote in a statement on his blog.

    The classic 20th-century political spectrum is gravely flawed as a depiction of the range of philosophical opinion. The Traditional Political Spectrum The common depiction of the political spectrum traditionally shows communism at the left end, fascism at the right end, and less extreme political systems at various points in between: This depiction of the spectrum, and its nearly universal acceptance as a self-evidently accurate framework, has had a number of adverse corollary effects on political thinking and discourse. Because tyranny is found at the extremes of the spectrum, the socially and politically comfortable place to reside is near the center....

    The Igbo language is one rich in proverbs. These proverbs have the capacity to instruct, admonish, and predict the fate of any given situation all at once. In my opinion, the best that the Igbo language offers are the uncomplicated one-liners, abridged versions of a thoroughly instructive tale -- a tale that disguises as sage advice. I have been watching Barack Obama for some time now. Ironically it is he, a man whom I feel has no wisdom whatsoever -- that has more than anyone in my short history -- inspired me to look back towards the wisdom of my...

    If history is a guide, presidents who devote a joint session of Congress to a single domestic issue gain a bump. The drama of taking the center stage of American politics increases both attention and support. President Carter’s 1977 energy speech resulted in a nine-point rise in the percentage of Americans who thought the nation had a serious energy problem. After President Clinton delivered his health care joint session in 1993, 79 percent of Americans agreed that the health care system needed fundamental changes or should be “completely rebuilt.” Neither speech, however, changed the fundamental political dynamic in Congress.

Among Americans who watched the address to a joint session of Congress, the percentage favoring his plans rose from 53 percent before the speech to 67 percent after, a national CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll found. Whether the bump will last remains a big unknown, said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

    The Van Jones story isn't about another radical federal employee or even about President Obama's addiction to executive authority (he has appointed over 30 czars with whom he meets regularly, but he has held just one cabinet meeting since his inauguration). The Van Jones story is about our president: a man who fills the void in his emotional past with "authentic" black men who have no interior struggle for definition.

Taking regular jabs at critics and the insurance industry, President Obama today explained his $US900 billion proposal to revamp America's $US2.5 trillion health care system, a bold set of changes first proposed by Theodore Roosevelt in 1912. The healthcare debate provoked outrage in town halls across the US last month and has driven Mr Obama's approval rating down five points to 50 percent since July, according to an Associated Press-GfK out late yesterday.

    09/09/2009 9:50:56 PM PDT · by Sarah Barracuda · 71 replies · 3,378+ views
    After all the rhetoric is put aside, one principle ran through President Obama’s speech tonight: that increased government involvement in health care can solve its problems. Many Americans fundamentally disagree with this idea. We know from long experience that the creation of a massive new bureaucracy will not provide us with “more stability and security,” but just the opposite. It's hard to believe the President when he says that this time he and his team of bureaucrats have finally figured out how to do things right if only we’ll take them at their word. Our objections to the Democrats’ health...

    "Postcards from Israel - Postcards from America" ^ | September 9, 2009 | Ari Bussel and Norma Zager
    Fighting for Israel, But Why? by Ari Bussel and Norma Zager "The right to swing my fist ends where the other man's nose begins.” Attributed to Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. A senior minister of the Israeli Government is in Los Angeles this week with a message for Americans (Christians and Jews) to relate to the Administration: The Settlements are not the issue. The head of opposition from Israel, Israel’s foreign minister until just a few months ago, is arriving in LA toward the end of the week. She is coming with a completely different message than her counterpart, asking the...

    The number of car-to-house-sized meteoroids whizzing through the Earth’s neighborhood is about 10 times higher than Earth-based telescopic surveys suggest, a new study reveals. That finding, reported online August 28 and in an upcoming Journal of Geophysical Research–Planets, comes from analyses of recently declassified data on infrasonic waves in the atmosphere detected between November 1960 and April 1972. The network of instruments collecting the data was originally designed to detect low-frequency sound waves produced by aboveground nuclear tests, says Elizabeth Silber, a planetary physicist at the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada. But during the 13-year period, the instruments...
  • Poll: What do you think of Rep. Joe Wilson's decision to shout out 'You lie!'

    What do you think of Rep. Joe Wilson's decision to shout out 'You lie!' during the president's speech? It was completely inappropriate. There's never an excuse for bad manners. It revealed the frustration of House Republicans who feel powerless. He was completely within his rights.

    Red State ^ | 9-9-09 | Erick Erickson
    A Black Man Became a Walking Red Herring Tonightby Erick Erickson Wednesday, September 9th This was not a speech worthy of a national night of media coverage before a joint session of congress. This was a partisan speech full of rubbing Republicans’ noses in his legislative policy preferences. Americans tonight are suffering pre-traumatic hemorrhoid disorder, knowing Barack Obama’s government is about to rape their wallets, destroy their wages, and force government healthcare down our throats. We were treated to a vainglorious, pompous ass playing politics with healthcare while accuses everyone else of playing politics. And he spent the whole hour...

    It doesn't sound as if Jaycee Dugard got to see a sports page. Box scores were not available to her from June 10, 1991 until Aug. 31 of this year. She never saw a highlight. Never got to the ballpark for Beach Towel Night. Probably hasn't high-fived in a while. She was not allowed to spike a volleyball. Or pitch a softball. Or smack a forehand down the line. Or run in a 5-footer for double bogey. Now, that's deprivation. Can you imagine? Dugard was 11 when she was kidnapped and stashed in Phillip Garrido's backyard. She was 29 when...

    FARM Kid in the Army (NOW AT BASE BORDEN RECRUIT TRAINING) Dear Ma and Pa, I am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Army beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up quick before all of the places are filled. I was restless at first because you get to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m. But I am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to...

  • OBAMA'S SPEECH: DID IT HELP HIM?

    Powerline ^ | 9/9/2009 | John Hinderaker
    From a policy standpoint, there was nothing new in President Obama's speech to a joint session of Congress tonight. It can only be assessed, therefore, in political terms. I read the transcript rather than watching it, but the speech struck me as reasonably effective. I assume the delivery was standard Obama--smooth, generally flat, occasionally a bit whiny. One striking aspect of the speech was that Obama kept talking about the "plan" that he "announced" tonight--but there is no plan; not in writing, anyway. Not unless Obama meant Nancy Pelosi's House bill, but he didn't seem to, since he made a...
