trick or treat obama style

With the Obama plan to spread the wealth this could be the future of halloween. Watch this hilariously funny video.

compare Obama and McCain health care plans

This is a great way to
compare Obama and McCain health care plans with easy side by side comparison.

Here’s a few of my own notes on health care in response to some of Obama’s statements:
Everyone in America already has access to health care. It’s a terrible solution, but anyone can go to ER and get care whether they have money or not. So let’s take out of the equation that someone cannot get access to any health care.

In Florida we have a program called Florida KidCare. Florida KidCare is the state’s children’s health insurance program for uninsured children under age 19. No child needs to be without health care if their family can’t afford. Again, not the greatest solution, but I wouldn’t expect any national health plan to be better than this either.

Obama wants to invest $50 billion toward adoption of electronic medical records and other HIT. Given the governments track record on protecting our data, and purchasing of ‘global’ software solutions, I want no part in investing in government solution. The private sector is much more likely to do this cheaper, get the health care industry to help pay for it, and get the project done faster.

Obama would require employers to provide seven paid sick days per year. The businesses that can afford this generally pay their employees already, whether it’s stated on the books or not. I know this because I’ve benefited from it. The rule book said one thing, but when it came down to it, if the company was doing well, the boss paid you if you were sick, whether you had sick days coming or not. Many small businesses give one week paid vacation to new hires. This more than doubles that. Believe me, I feel for those who get sick and need the money. But the burden on businesses is too great to demand it.

Businessman says no Obama yes McCain

Another prominent businessman says no to Obama. This came from my father, and again, I have the letter writer contact information. I removed his name every where because I don’t know if he meant for it to be published on the internet and I want to respect his privacy. Of course, there’s enough information for you to figure it out too.

Subject: Straight talk for Republicans and Democrats.
A Humble Plea to McCain and Obama Supporters:

Dear friends,
I am truly astonished by the ignorance Obama supporters have displayed in their quest to get someone – ANYONE – into the White House. Now, wait a minute. I can well understand your dislike or even hatred of our clown, GWB, but he is not the root cause of all of our problems. Our Congress is. And a change there would be welcomed by all. You ain’t gonna get it done with Obama. You gotta fire the whole damnable crooked Congress.
(Read my book, “BERNIE’S WAR!”).

Perhaps I’m looking at all of this from a different perspective than you because my life experiences have been so different from yours. I’m 80-years old and have traveled the world where I’ve seen a great deal. I spent five years on active duty as a fighter pilot in the USAF and another seven years flying with the Air National Guard in California and Texas as well as a few years flying in the USAF Reserve. I spent three years on active duty in Germany flying Czech border patrol with “cold guns” in aircraft inferior to the MIG during the Korean “Police Action” when it
was thought that Korea was a diversion for a Soviet invasion of Western Europe.

I lived abroad for a total of 28 years. Three years in Germany, twenty years in Switzerland and five years in Great Britain where I was based doing “spook” work for the U.S. behind the Iron Curtain before it fell. During that era of the Cold War I ventured to Moscow, Prague, Warsaw, Bucharest, Peshawar, Pakistan and Bulgaria posing as a Swiss French-speaking arms dealer purchasing weapons we surreptitiously supplied to the Afghani Mujahedeen in their successful fight against the Soviets
– all of which came back to haunt us.

I’ve been there and done that and have had close associations with top government people in Germany, the Netherlands and Great Britain. I’ve had more foreign affair experience than Obama could ever dream of and, yet, wouldn’t have the temerity to deign myself “Presidential” material; although I feel eminently more qualified to judge who would NOT be best for our country. My long-time world experience should count for something in my plea to you to abandon this miscreant flake. You will only be
doing yourself and our country an enormous disservice if you persist in your support of this flash-in-the-pan opportunist. On this, you MUST trust me.

I’ve associated closely with European royalty and African politicians. I’ve traveled to the Far East to observe their cultures. My point is that Obama, although formally well educated and a brilliant orator, is a neophyte when it comes to understanding the world and is uniquely unqualified for the job as President of these great United States. His knowledge of economics is nil and his tax proposals absurd and life-threatening to the U.S. not only in economic terms but in preserving our national security as well. I don’t want a “citizen of the world” to be President, I want a citizen of the good old USA to be President.
Screw the rest of the world as they have well and truly screwed us. The time has come for us to awaken and start looking after ourselves. Now THAT would be CHANGE if that’s what you’re looking for.

While McCain has abstained from playing “the race-card”, Obama is playing it to the hilt even though he’s technically not an African-American. To qualify for this distinction you must be at least one-sixth black. Obama is only one-eighth. His father would be, as he was one-sixth. No, Obama is more Muslim than black yet he trades on his blackness.

The larger question I have about him is that we really don’t know much about him other than what HE tells us, what we read on blogs and from some serious non-partisan investigators whose factual reports are, unfortunately, generally ignored and which receive precious little media exposure.

I, as a registered Independent, a military veteran and a patriot,
beseech you to put aside party considerations and vote for the lesser of the two evils. Yes, I am NOT a McCain supporter, but he is, at least, not a flake, doesn’t carry Muslim baggage and is a PROVEN hero and patriot WITH experience. It’s not a party issue. It’s all about electing the best we can trust with what we’ve got to work with. Mr. Obama is NOT that guy.

Please, please rethink your voting position.
Thanks for reading my innermost thoughts. I care about all of you, but I care more about our country. Please help me to do both.
