My sister has copd and has been in and out of the hospital a lot this year. Her insurance is medicare, which is what I have as well these days. So she has been in the hospital and stays until medicare decides she is well enough to leave. I have never thought that she was mistreated or that enough was not done, but they do rush her out of the hospital, when I think she needs more care.

So when medicare decides to stop paying the doctors send her home. So tell me how the hell are they going to save billions without cutting off those payments even earlier. And how the hell is cutting off payments not rationing health care. It can only get worse if the government goes into the health care business.

Jimmy showed us again why no one should pay any attention to him. While he was president he was being groomed to be an ex president and still doesn't have it right.

Well tonight the head cheerleader will try to rally the troupes. I'm not going to watch it but I am interested in the after action reports. What rabbits will he pull from the hat. Or will he just try to again bedazzle those who voted for him. After all he did promise them change. They just didn't ask exactly what change. I do hope someone states the nuts and bolts of this change since all I hear is conflicting versions of this great health care change.

I got this in my email. I didn't do a fact check but it seems about right to me.

Are we on the wrong page…?

A vehicle at 15 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 800 gallons a year of gasoline.

A vehicle at 25 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 480 gallons a year.

So, the average "Cash for Clunkers" transaction will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.

They claim 700,000 vehicles – so that's 224 million gallons /year.

That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil.

5 million barrels of oil is about ¼ of one day's US consumption.

And, 5 million barrels of oil costs about $350 million dollars at $70/bbl.

So, we all contributed to spending $3 billion to save $350 million.

How good a deal was that ???

They'll probably do a great job with health care though!!

nice trade queenie

In an interview published Saturday, British Justice Secretary Jack Straw said trade considerations, particularly a deal for oil company BP, played a major role in the decision to include Megrahi in a prisoner transfer agreement between Britain and Libya.

So the brits traded their honor for oil. Now there is a shock. So now we know in some parts of the world, and maybe here now as well, terrorism takes a backseat to commerce. It's easier to appease a terrorist than have the balls to hang his ass. At least we had the balls to fight for out oil lol.

Well he ain't Capt Kangaroo's buddy

President Barack Obama's environmental adviser Van Jones, who became embroiled in a controversy over past inflammatory statements, has resigned his White House job after what he calls a "vicious smear campaign against me."

So Mr Green Jobs calls it a day. How the hell did such a nut case get a job in any administration. Don't they look at the backgrounds of the people they appoint, or is it more that they don't care, or even worse that they all share the same disdain for their government.

The smear campaign was using his own words against him. That is so unfair, rofl...

I said it before and I'll say it again... Afghanistan is going to break our hearts. As the russians.

Let's see the details before you pass anything

I think the debate needs to be on a solid plan not all this maybe it's this and maybe it's that. Just to be open minded not that I am.
