Political Digest October 12, 2009

I post articles because I think they are of interest. Doing so doesn’t mean that I necessarily agree with every—or any—opinion in the posted article.

It's a 12-day miracle! Praise Obama and pass the Hopium,0,6621520.column
Chicago Tribune’s John Kass at his funniest.

Marek Edelman, the man who wouldn't let the light dim
The type of man who, in a just world, would be winning prizes. But he was a leftist who fought tyranny, rather than acquiesce to it, so I guess a Peace Prize was out.

Honor the flag

Obama's Intimates and Advisors
Unflattering profiles of “all the president’s people.”

Mayo unit no longer to accept Medicare
Excerpt: Hospital officials called the new policy a "two-year pilot program" and said Thursday that the changes are necessary because of low Medicare reimbursement rates.

Organizers Cut Microphone As Filmmaker Presses Al Gore Over ‘Errors’

If you laugh at Obama’s Nobel, you side with terrorists
Excerpt: “The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists - the Taliban and Hamas this morning - in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize,” DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse told POLITICO. “Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the President of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize - an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride - unless of course you are the Republican Party.

SNL sides with the terrorists, mocks ObamaPrize
Excerpt: Obama: "I won the Nobel for not being George Bush."

Man Slated to be Obama’s Top Immigration Agent Investigated for Embezzlement
Should fit perfectly with this administration.

Anger Management Hits a Hump
Very funny read. Excerpt: Consider nature. Not the placid nature that Constable painted, but nature as Tennyson saw it, "red in tooth and claw." To glimpse a state of nature as Hobbes imagined it, where human life is "nasty, brutish and short," visit the Whole Foods store on River Road in Bethesda, Md. There, and -- let the political profiling begin -- probably at many Whole Food stores and other magnets for liberals, nationwide, you will see proof of this social equation: Four Priuses plus three parking spaces equal angry anarchy.

Stunning: Despite Plot, NYC's Terror Funds Slashed
Why not? BO got the ObamaPrize for ending the War on Terror, right? So why would NY need money?

Muslim Congressman Ellison's trip to Mecca cost $13,350 -- paid for by the Muslim Brotherhood
Excerpt: The Muslim Brotherhood "must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions." -- "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America," by Mohamed Akram, May 19, 1991. What does that have to do with Congressman Ellison? Everything. The Muslim American Society paid for his Hajj. And what is the Muslim American Society? The Muslim Brotherhood. (What used to be called “suicide” we now call “multiculturalism.”)

A casualty of callousness
Excerpt: This is all well and good, but it does beg the question: Why is Larry Hutchins still in prison? Hutchins is from Plymouth. His father, Lawrence G. Hutchins Jr., was a Marine, and his grandfather, Lawrence G. Hutchins Sr., was a Marine, and all Lawrence G. Hutchins III wanted was to be a Marine. He signed up at 17 but had to wait until he got out of Plymouth High to go to boot camp. He was sent to Iraq and saw some bad things. His platoon was ambushed one day and he called in an airstrike. The bomb hit the wrong house, and when Sergeant Larry Hutchins ran to the rubble, he saw dead women and children. The insurgents who ambushed them that day kept ambushing them, killing Marines, and as soon as his platoon arrested a suspected insurgent, someone with a higher rank released them. Three years ago, Hutchins’s unit abducted a man named Hashim Awad in a small village in Anbar Province, and, in a moment of madness or frustration or both, Hutchins shot him in the head.

How a Public Health Plan Undercuts Consumer Choice

Obama’s War, Part 1
Worth viewing. Marines in Afghanistan.

Comparing penalties
Funny, but too true.
