No clue about the Fox position, nor does Galt care.

The US should not be involved and the fool in the White House should just STFU and save the threats for something that matters.

He covered up the deaths of four Americans, one an ambassador, that was perpetrated by a coordinated al Qaeda attack on the anniversary of 9/11 because he announced a few months earlier that he had killed bin Laden and al Qaeda was on the run and it was right before an election.

Personal gain and power came before telling the truth to the American people and closure to the victims' families. This is a coverup that makes watergate look like child's play.

Do you speak English?
Does it matter if Saddam was an "eminent" threat or an "imminent" threat if the point is he was still a threat?

The UN considered him an imminent threat as did Bill Clinton and every prominent democrat before 9/11.

It's why they're weasels. They knew it and still let Bush hang in the wind for political gain.

And to add insult to injury, they lied to you while doing it.

Horror stories abound of live babies being killed and dumped into plastic containers, as well as babies actually trying to "swim" after being born in a toilet.

How many more doctors and clinics doing this kind of barbarism haven't been exposed yet? Probably just the tip of the iceberg.

This Democrat is really sick.
So is the liberal media.

The liberal media are propagandists by the very definition. Propagandists also withhold information to promote a policy, idea or cause.

<quoted text>Opinion piece and while Kessler has very impressive credentials in health care policy he's having fun with numbers and words. In one example, he has premiums for small groups increasing as much as 18% in another he has premiums increasing over 80%__apples and oranges perhaps? How many US dollars is 400% of the US Poverty level Carol? Why would the esteemed professor use such a description to state a persons income.
Health care premiums have been increasing every year babe particularly since the mid 1990's.
Very impressive credentials, indeed.

Daniel Kessler is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and a professor at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University where he teaches courses on economics, public policy and the health care industry. He is also a professor at the Stanford Law School and a professor, by courtesy, of health research and policy in the School of Medicine.

He is the holder of a PhD in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a JD from Stanford Law School.

He was quite clear in the WSJ. Small-group premiums are expected to increase by as much as 23% and, while some firms will see premium decreases due to community rating, firms with younger and healthier workers will see very large increases: 89% in Missouri, 91% in Indiana and 101% in Nevada.

I see no discrepency. Or apples. Or oranges.

I have kids& I care. That is why I will never ever vote for a Republican in state or federal elections. When you vote Republican, that candidates views are irrelevant because they always yield to party leadership.
The best way to decrease the deficits is to grow the economy. Yet Republicans vote against stimulus actions. They put their party's future electoral needs aead of this country's needs.

The Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.

The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.

So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
