    "WE'VE FIGURED HIM OUT! By Ben Stein

    Why is President Barack Obama in such a hurry to get his socialized medicine bill passed?

    Because he and his cunning circle realize some basic truths:

    The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in 2008.
    They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.
    They ignored his anti-white writings in his books.
    They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his minister, Jeremiah Wright.

    They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student.
    They ignored his ultra-left record as a "community organizer," Illinois state legislator, and Senator.

    The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record as a student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being touted as a scholar.

    Now, the American people are starting to wake up to the truth. Barack Obama is a super likeable super leftist, not a fan of this country, way, way too cozy with the terrorist leaders in the Middle East , way beyond naiveté, all the way into active destruction of our interests and our allies and our future. The American people have already awakened to the truth that the stimulus bill -- a great idea in theory -- was really an immense bribe to Democrat interest groups, and in no way an effort to help all Americans.

    Now, Americans are waking up to the truth that ObamaCare basically means that every time you are sick or injured, you will have a clerk from the Department of Motor Vehicles telling your doctor what he can and cannot do.

    The American people already know that Mr. Obama's plan to lower health costs while expanding coverage and bureaucracy is a myth, a promise of something that never was and never will be -- a bureaucracy lowering costs in a free society. Either the costs go up or the free society goes away.
    These are perilous times...Mrs. Hillary Clinton, our Secretary of State, has given Iran the go-ahead to have nuclear weapons, an unqualified betrayal of the nation. Now, we face a devastating loss of freedom at home in health care. It will be joined by controls on our lives to "protect us" from global warming, itself largely a fraud if believed to be caused by man. Mr. Obama knows Americans are getting wise and will stop him if he delays at all in taking away our freedoms. There is his urgency and our opportunity. Once freedom is lost, America is lost. Wake up, beloved America .

    Ben Stein is a writer, actor, economist, and lawyer living in Beverly Hills and Malibu . He writes "Ben Stein's Diary" for every issue of The American Spectator."

    He promised change. Those of you that don't want to live under socialism better start finding which country to go to. Khrushchev was right. All those soldiers that died fighting the cold war around the world only bought us a few extra years of freedom. Obama has started us down the road to tyranny.

    Why are our elected politicians allowing this to happen right in front of their eyes? Haven't they been told many times that the American people do not want Obama's Health Care bill. Tom

    Tjay,

    We used to call them statesmen as they were above the fold and would do the correct action for their constituents. Today, they worry more about the party; I refer to both sides of the aisle. Much too often they are in it for themselves. Just wait to see the "deals" the are being promised. Check out the new ambassodorships in 2011 and you will see what I mean.

    "Why are our elected politicians allowing this to happen right in front of their eyes? Haven't they been told many times that the American people do not want Obama's Health Care bill. Tom"

    A potential answer to you question is they have no intention of allowing free elections in November. I despise conspiracy nut jobs, but the big 3 genuinely display all the charactaristics of tyrants. Having seen what I have so far, I would not put even that beyond them.

    If health care passes, everybody should email nancy pelosi and say congratulations! Not many women can put on their resume that they slept with half the people in the USA, because she sure screwed us.

    Every time I hear Nancy say "For the American people" to me it is akin to hearing someone scraping their fingernails down a chalkboard.

    Wait a minute. Does "American people" mean USA citizens or does it mean North American people. Because technically American refers to anyone living on the continent. Don't believe me? When Canada customs asked my citizenship and I said "American" the lady just smiled, After leaving My wife who is much smarter than me (PHD in education) informed me that American applied to anyone on the continent and my correct reply should have been "USA"

    So.... when Nancy says "American people" she means everyone on the continent right?



    Mark my words when they get voted out of office in November because they voted for this health care bill, they and their associates will be given jobs in the one hundred plus commissions and bureaus the bill creates. Probably even make more money than they do now.

    Them Democrats had this all planned ahead of time.

    The Republicans are clamoring for a VOTE. Let's hope they know what they're talking about.


    Barry, I'll take the other side. I don't think it's passing tomorrow. The only reason the "deem and pass" strategy was even presented was because the assholes knew they didn't have the votes.


    In football analogy form, the democraps are at 6th down and 1. They keep snapping the ball over and over, trying to get the first down, because majority status gives them an unlimited amount of downs. But I think the whole reason this is being done on Sunday, is so if it fails, they've got a whole week to spin it before the next round of Sunday talk shows.

    Hope you're right Buzzer.

    I feel the same kind of sick feeling in my stomach as the night the SOB took the presidency. He's not my president.
