Senator Claire McCaskill as The Joker

Being from the St. Louis region, I found this picture funny from the Gateway Pundit.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Canadian Doctor on Health Care: Expect Long Lines and Rationing

I just love this piece.  I grabbed it from a great national blogger here in St. Louis, Gateway Pundit.  It really illustrates a great point of view regarding the Canadian Health Care System.  I am well aware that the proponents of some type of government plan will tell me: this is not socialized medicine!  I really don’t know how we can avoid a socialized system down the road if we decide to turn more control over to the government, but the convinced are rarely convinced otherwise.  Even if the current proposal(s) are not a fully government controlled plan like the Canadian’s currently have, it is my opinion that this is the logical conclusion (and what several members of Congress want – single payer system).

I know people from Canada that have had to wait in those lines.  I also know that the good MD’sin Canada often times will leave to practice in the US or other countries because of the vast income disparity and frustration with the bureaucratic system.  From this system the citizens of Canada do not get the best and brightest – they are coming down to our country to participate in our system.  What’s wrong with this picture?

I’m hoping that someone comes up with a better mousetrap before we are hammer of government run health care comes crashing down on us.  We’ll see.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Is Russ Carnahan Really This Stupid?

The Health Care debate has definitely heated up over the congressional recess.  St. Louis has become a hot bed of activity since the beating of a conservative at a recent event by members of the SEIU union that attended the event in support of Rep. Carnahan.  One blog called these guys Union Thugs, I think I agree with that sentiment.

On Friday of this week, Jamie Allman, a local morning talk show host from 97.1 FM Talk, attended a secret press conference where Rep. Carnahan blamed the right-wing extremists for causing problems at his Town Hall event.  When pressed by Mr. Allman, Rep. Carnahan had no real answers and slinked back into political mode.  I actually thought Rodney King was going to pop up and shout, “Can’t we all just get along?”

From The Gateway Pundit:

Carnahan first claimed that the SEIU members may not have beenhis supporters.  Carnahan announced this morning that the GOP was behind the violence.  He also accused Minority Leader John Boehner of instigating the violence(?)

So Rep. Carnahan, you have no idea that a man, a black man, was beaten by the SEIU “Security Force” that you brought in to “control” the unruly crowd.  Are you blind or just plain stupid.  I wonder what would have happened if there were conservatives beating a black member of the SEIU – or any other citizen.  I’ll tell you what would happen, it would be on every newspaper from here to Oxnard.  As it stood on Friday, they had to have a “secret” press conference.

My only regret is I don’t live in your district so I have no say-so in your demise.

Of course, this is just my opinion
