DEMOCRAT ‘HEALTH CARE’ ROLLS ON
"I doubt whether there are many Americans who think Congress has either the right or competency to choose where they live, what clothes they wear or what cars they drive. Yet many Americans stand ready to allow Congress to decide what doctors they go to and what treatments they receive. We forget that once we have government-sponsored health care, it can be used to justify almost any restraint on liberty." --economist Walter E. Williams
"The president claims that we must pass a government-run health insurance program -- possibly the most wide-ranging and intricate government undertaking in decades -- yesterday or a 'ticking time bomb' will explode. If all this terrifying talk sounds familiar, it might be because the president applies the same fear-infused vocabulary to nearly all his hard-to-defend policy positions. You'll remember the stimulus plan had to be passed without a second's delay or we would see 8.7 percent unemployment. We're almost at 10." --columnist David Harsanyi
"Even if the 'stimulus' package doesn't seem to be doing much to stimulate the economy, it is certainly stimulating many potential recipients of government money to start lining up at the trough. All you need is something that sounds like a 'good thing' and the ability to sell the idea." --economist Thomas Sowell
"[T]he unifying constant of [Obama's] domestic policies -- their connecting thread -- is that they advance the Democrats' dependency agenda. The party of government aims to make Americans more equal by making them equally dependent on government for more and more things." --columnist George Will
"While doctrinaire socialists might feel betrayed by liberalism's cozy embrace of big business, their betrayal pales in comparison to the bitterness of free-marketers who defend big business's freedom to operate, only to see these businesses use that freedom to hide behind the skirts of the nanny state. Real freedom means the freedom to fail as well as succeed. Big business wants to be protected from the former and deny competitors the latter. And their betrayal, more than anything, disheartens those who would defend both freedoms." --columnist Jonah Goldberg
"We can debate endlessly whether the Constitution authorizes any president to 'overhaul' the financial system. But I want to focus on a different matter: whether any president, with all his advisers, is capable of overseeing something as complex as the financial system. My answer is no, and it is ominous that a bright guy like Obama doesn't know this. He thinks he must regulate the system because it is so complicated and important. In fact, those are the reasons why he cannot regulate it, and should not try." --columnist John Stossel
"President Obama is making a promise on health care reform that is almost certainly impossible to keep. Actually, there are a lot of those, but for this editorial we will focus on just one: Obama's promise that health care reform won't be financed by even a penny of deficit spending. In his June 13 radio address, President Obama said, 'I have made a firm commitment that health care reform will not add to the federal deficit over the next decade.' Thursday, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said, 'The President is not going to sign a health care bill that increases the size of the deficit.' Great! Health care reform will be fully paid for. But wait. The Congressional Budget Office released a letter last week (in response to a request from U.S. Sen. Judd Gregg, by the way) that reached the opposite conclusion. It noted that the proposals being considered in Washington would dramatically increase federal deficits. Just one part of the Kennedy plan alone would cost taxpayers $1 trillion over a decade. For health care reform to 'not add to the federal deficit over the next decade,' every penny of new taxpayer spending on health care reform would have to be paid for by either a tax increase or a spending cut somewhere else. We're talking about roughly $1 trillion in spending -- all paid for. But remember, we already have a $1.8 trillion deficit this year. Every penny spent on health care reform is a penny not spent to pay down the existing deficit. So in reality, health care reform will at the very least perpetuate existing deficits even if it doesn't expand them. Will Congress actually raise taxes and cut spending by $1 trillion to pay for health care reform? It will appear so on paper. But don't hold your breath waiting for the 'savings' to materialize." --New Hampshire Union Leader
"If our economy of freedom fails to distribute wealth as ably as it has created it, the road to dictatorship will be open to any man who can persuasively promise security to all." -- psychologist and philosopher Will Durant (1885-1981)
"The state is the great fiction by which everybody seeks to live at the expense of everybody else." --French economist, statesman and author Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)
"He who does not bellow out the truth when he knows the truth makes himself the accomplice of liars and forgers." --French poet, essayist and editor Charles Peguy (1873-1914)
Amerikan president: "Now, the public [health care] plan, I think, is an important tool to discipline insurance companies. ...[I]f what the insurance companies are saying is true, that they're doing their best to serve their customers ... they should be able to compete." --President Barack Obama
Sounds like a threat: "Our families, our businesses and our long-term fiscal health demands that we act and act now. To those here in Washington who've grown accustomed to sky-is-falling prognoses and the certainties that we cannot get this done, I have to repeat and revive an old saying we had from the campaign -- Yes, we can. We are going to get this done." --Barack Obama on his socialized medicine plan
He cares, but... "Well, uh, [the deficit] is something that keeps me awake at night. There's no doubt that we got a serious problem in terms of our long-term deficits and debt. I make no apologizes for having acted short-term to deal with our recession." --Barack Obama having his cake and eating it too
Poor guy: "I've got one television station that is entirely devoted to attacking my administration. I mean ... that's a pretty big megaphone and you'd be hard-pressed if you watched the entire day to find a positive story about me on that front." --Barack Obama, whining about Fox News
Quite proud of herself: "Could you say 'senator' instead of 'ma'am?' It's just a thing. I worked so hard to get that title. So I'd appreciate it." --Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) to Brigadier General Michael Walsh during a Senate hearing
It would be funny if it weren't a crying shame: "Why bother hanging out with celebrities when I can spend time with the people who made me one? I know where my bread is buttered. ... I have to admit though, it wasn't easy coming up with fresh material for this dinner. A few nights ago, I was up tossing and turning trying to figure out exactly what to say. Finally, when I couldn't get back to sleep, I rolled over and asked Brian Williams what he thought." --the media-made president at the Radio and TV Correspondents dinner
Iranian Idiot: "The international capitalist order is retreating... It is absolutely obvious that the age of empires has ended and its revival will not take place." --Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on his own re-election
Advice on Iran: "What Obama needs is a rapid return to peace and quiet in Iran, not continued ferment. His goal must be to deflate the opposition, not to encourage it. And that, by and large, is what he has been doing." --Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Robert Kagan
Former idiot sees the light: "And then I saw the end of the [Vietnam] war. I saw us pull out, and then I saw the communists move in and slaughter two and a half million people in South Vietnam and Cambodia. And I saw the left that had precipitated this turn away, just walk away from it. ... They didn't take seriously the blood that they had been directly causing. ... But I must say programming is very, very deep. And I didn't really pull out of it for quite a while afterward. But that's where the dime dropped and things started to happen." --actor Jon Voight on why he became a conservative
"Having the government compete against the private sector is kind of like my seven-year-old daughter's lemonade stand competing against McDonalds." --Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)
"You know, most people, when they read '1984,' were scared. When Barack Obama read it, he started taking notes." --radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh
"Whether it is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Weather Underground, Central Park rapists, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Jim Jones and the People's Temple, welfare recipients, Palestinian terrorists, murderers, abortionists, strippers or common criminals -- liberals always take the side of the enemies of civilization against civilization. In the view of The New York Times, every criminal trial is a shocking miscarriage of justice -- except the ones that actually are shocking miscarriages of justice." --columnist Ann Coulter
"The polite explanation for Barack Obama's diffidence on Iran is that he doesn't want to give the mullahs the excuse to say the Great Satan is meddling in Tehran's affairs. So the president's official position is that he's modestly encouraged by the regime's supposed interest in investigating some of the allegations of fraud. Also, he's heartened to hear that OJ is looking for the real killers." --columnist Mark Steyn
"The Pentagon deployed missile interceptors to Honolulu on Friday after reports that the North Koreans are planning to fire a missile at Hawaii. The president's birthplace is safe. It'll take them ten years to build a missile that can reach Kenya." --comedian Argus Hamilton

BARRY SOETORO aka BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA
He is not eligible to be
President of the United States
because he is not a Natural Born Citizen
as required by Article Two, Section One, Clause Five of the United States Constitution.
This is a fact regardless of
where he was born (Mombassa, Hawaii, Chicago, Mecca or Mars).
He is not eligible
because he was not born of
BOTH OF WHOM WERE UNITED STATES CITIZENS
at the time of his birth as required by the Constitution.
His father was a subject/ciitizen
of Kenya/Great Britain at the time of his birth and afterwards.
It is even possible that he is not a United States
citizen at all if he was born in Kenya, as three witnesses have testified. Because his mother could not pass her US citizenship on to her son because she did not live continuously in the United States for five full years after her fourteenth birthday as required by the US immigration law in effect during that period of time.

Also, an excellent introductory primer on Obama Presiidential Eligibility is to be found at:
His usurpation can only be corrected (1) by Congress through his Impeachment and Removal [something which will never happen in a Congress controlled by Pelosi/Reid], or (2) it can be
corrected by his resignation, which could happen if the public presssure on him to resign becomes great enough, or (3) by his removal by the United States Supreme Court affirming a Quo Warranto decision of the United States Federal District Court for the District of Columbia [which process Attorney General Eric Holder would never allow to even begin] or (4) by an amendment to the Constitution,
which will never happen because that again would require the agreement of a Congress controlled by Pelosi/Reid.
