This is great. I truly hope the vast majority of Americans feel this way, too.

That’s all.

You see this reaction? THIS is how I feel about what the government is doing to us with this whole healthcare debacle. I just about have no words.

That’s all.

Good news for Obama: New CNN poll shows viewers liked speech

A post-speech CNN poll came up with some positive findings for President Obama:

  • 77 percent had a very positive or somewhat positive reaction to his health-care speech (56 percent were “very positive”)
  • 70 percent said the policies Obama is proposing will move the country in the right direction.
  • 67 percent said they favored Obama’s plan to reform health care. 29 percent oppose it.
  • Asked how likely it is that Congress will pass most of his proposals, 75 percent said it was “very likely” or “somewhat likely.”
  • Finally, asked how clearly Obama laid out his plan, 72 percent said he “clearly” stated his goals.

Some notes on the poll:

427 adults who watched the speech were surveyed. 18% of the respondents who participated in the survey identified themselves as Republicans, 45% identified themselves as Democrats, and 37% identified themselves as Independents.

Margin of error: 5 percent.

This “poll” was touted by both CNN and MSNBC (surprise, surprise). PLEASE, everyone, if you get nothing else from this, understand that you cannot trust the mainstream media anymore. You have to read the fine print and take everything with a grain of salt. It’s unfortunate, but true. Sadly, there are only a minute number of real journalists left in this country.

That’s all.

 

Advice Worth Taking September 10, 2009

‘Never invest in a business you cannot understand.’ ~Warren Buffett

I honestly don’t have any strong feelings regarding Warren Buffett. The only thing I don’t understand is how he could have supported Barack Obama for president in good conscience since he’s supposedly some genius financial guy – but I digress. Apparently, the feeling is mutual because President Obama has said that he would look to Buffett in regards to the economy, blah, blah, blah.

So, my point is this: Shouldn’t Obama take Buffett’s advice? Can’t we take that piece of advice one tiny step further and say, “Never invest in anything you don’t understand”? Nevermind all of the hullabaloo over healthcare that you’ve heard thus far. I have another question for you. Can we all agree that no matter what side of the debate you’re on, none of us truly understands what is in the healthcare bill or how it’s going to affect our country? So, if no one actually fully comprehends this thing, then why is it being pushed so hard? Why are we even fighting about it? Don’t we have more questions than answers? Even our elected representatives don’t understand it and they wrote the thing!

That’s all.

 

Say Cheese! September 9, 2009

heckle

If looks could cause someone to spontaneously burst into a giant ball of flames, Rep. Joe Wilson would be a pile of ashes right now! Woo! Biden has his typical dimwitted expression, Pelosi looks stunned that someone had the gall to interrupt her savior, and Obama looks like he’s going to get some of his Chicago boys to give Wilson a pair of concrete boots. What a classic, classic moment. While I enjoyed the moment, strictly on an entertainment level, it was totally uncalled for. While I disagree with just about every word that comes out of President Obama’s mouth, I do respect the office. HOWEVER, I wonder how much outrage there would have been if it was Bush that had been heckled . . .

That’s all.
