Socialized Medicine In New Jersey
Recently the State of New Jersey’s Department of Human Services, along with local school districts, issued a letter requiring parents to provide specific health insurance information about their children who attend school within their respective local school districts. The letter from the department requires disclosure of the following private information:
The status and the insurance provider’s name of each child's health coverage.
The date of the child’s last medical exam.
The date of the child’s last lead blood level test.
None of the concerns listed on the letter present an immediate or long-term public health risk. So why is the Garden State (or should we say Guardian State) peering over our shoulders and watching our kids? The state’s motivation here appears to be a bit insidious around the edges, and it comes to us under the guise of promoting NJ FamilyCare; a federally and state funded health care plan for low-income, uninsured children, and, in many instances, adults.
On the surface, this looks like a very compassionate program to take care of our precious children. But this is only skin deep. A closer look reveals a half-hearted attempt at socialized medicine. The state claims that NJ FamilyCare is not a welfare program, yet is costs only a maximum of $120.50 all the way down to no charge per month, depending on family size and income. So the rest of us, who neither need, nor care to participate in the program, will end up footing the bill. The annual cost of this program is approaching $400 million in state and federal funds.
What gives here? The question remains, why is the state interested in our children’s medical care? Is this the beginning of a plan to bring us all into the fold of socialized medicine by cataloging and evaluating the quality of care the parents of New Jersey give to their children? Do no think this is far fetched. At least one New Jersey legislator, Sen. Ellen Karcher, is working diligently to introduce a bill that would outlaw transfat in restaurant foods. Big brother not only wants to watch our children, he wants to watch us eat too. In the Guardian State freedom of choice is not on the menu.
The state, in its infinite wisdom, may make a choice of healthy cuisine for us, and then decide that we are not caring for little Johnny and Jane well enough. They would know this through all of the information they have already collected, in addition to more detailed information they will undoubtedly collect in coming months and years. Why else would they query every parent in the state about the status of their child’s healthcare and their last medical exam?
The process would be much more efficient, streamlined, and cheaper, if they queried only those who need or want to enroll in NJ FamilyCare. Perhaps they could reach out with a single flyer that reads something like: If your child or you are without healthcare, and you wish to enroll in NJ FamilyCare, please call the New Jersey Dept. Human Services.
Information concerning children who are already have health insurance coverage is of no use to the NJ Familycare program. Conversely, information concerning children who are not covered is of great use to the program, unless of course their interest is more than just providing health insurance for low income families.
Step by step, inch by inch, the Guardian State is moving toward socialized medicine. It is riding on the back of the NJ Familycare program that evolved from NJ KidCare, which covered only children, to NJ FamilyCare that brought adults under the program’s wing also. Eventually, the state will bring all us into the program by using the information it collects to declare that all of us bad parents out there are need to be told how to care for our children, and socialized medicine is their solution.

Makeup-wearing women entice men by "swaying suggestively, and "dressing inappropriately"
"Women should stay in their homes, in their rooms and no problems will occur."
Are all of you good liberals outraged?
No need to get your blood pressure up, these words were spoken by Australia's most senior Muslim cleric Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali "during a Ramadan sermon in a Sydney mosque as the Sheik was trying to justify the actions of a group of Muslim men who had been jailed for alleged gang rapes."
All of your hours spent espousing your sick, twisted liberal ideals will payoff eventually. Reach out with politically correct ideals and misplaced pacifism, and give a helping hand to the religion of tollerance and peace. They will come bearing gifts of gratitude for those who made it possible for them to walk in and behead as many of us as they can. They will be most grateful while they cover the uncovered meat. Sit quietly now, don't say a word.

SAN DIEGO The chair of the House Armed Services Committee asked the Pentagon today to remove C-N-N reporters embedded with U-S combat units.
The network televised portions of a video on Wednesday showing insurgent snipers targeting U-S military personnel.
CNN has revealed the true colors of liberalism in displaying their penchant for sympathy with enemy. They have stooped to a new low by using the blood of our brothers, sisters and children as a ratings grabber.
Executives said the tape came to the network unexpectedly through contact with an insurgent leader.
Why is CNN making contact with the enemy and not alerting US military authorities as to their location? Is this done in the name of journalism and fair reporting? Nothing is fair when dealing with the enemy. The institution of journalism does not advance when morals and patriotic duty is sacrificed for a good story. Rather, journalism is dragged down into the dark abyss the insurgents themselves have crawled out of.
Representative Duncan Hunter wrote in his letter that, quote, "C-N-N has now served as the publicist for an enemy propaganda film featuring the killing of an American soldier."
This is nothing short of treason and the reporters involved, and all of the CNN hierarchy should be investigated and charged as enemy sympathizers. The charge of "Treason" carries the death penalty.
C-N-N executives defended their decision to air the footage, saying its news value outweighed other concerns.
Remember this; CNN now declares that "news worthiness" now outweighs moral worthiness and the safety of our troops.
Send an email to President Bush and tell him to act like a leader and take appropriate action against CNN: email@example.com

There was no shortage of noise supplied by a large enthusiastic crowd of beer drinkers and music from a local FM radio station. Over one hundred breweries offered endless samples of each of their craft, accompanied by the occasional free t-shirt or hat. One of the most popular exhibits offering free hats was the El Aguila exhibit whose "El Aguila Girls" handed out free hats to anyone who said "El Aguila."
The El Aguila beer itself was "fruity" and refeshing, but not the best brew at the beer fest. Yet, this exhibit proved to be the most popular at the fest!
The Heartland Brewery, located nearby in New York City, is among this blogger's favorite brewery (for actual beer, not just the girls). Their Corn Husker Brew is light, refreshing and leaves a distinct, nutty aftertaste on the tongue.
Another outstanding brand was "He'Brew." Aside from being very imaginative, their I.P.A. beer brewed with rye was truly a change from most of the standard hops and malt brew. Very dry and dark, the hops and rye complimented each other without either of the flavors being overwhelming. Welldone!
With so many beers and so little time, to list them all here would be impossible. The $60.00 entrance fee was well worth it, except for the fact the food court was lacking and the music was much too loud, Brewtopia should not be missed the next time it comes around.

Treacherous Lawyer and vermon scum Lynn Stewart received a slap on the wrist from an equally treacherous federal judge John Koeltl for her collaboration with the enemies of America.
As US District Judge John Koeltl delivered his sentence in a packed federal courtroom in Manhattan, Stewart lifted her glasses and dabbed at tears as her husband hugged his daughter tightly. An hour later the 67-year-old lawyer emerged from the federal courthouse holding hands with her granddaughter and grandson and, to loud cheers and applause from hundreds of supporters, declared a victory of sorts over the Bush administration. SourceA victory of sorts over the Bush administration, and an absolute victory for the Islamo-Facists Terrorists who, if given the chance, will behead all of us, starting with the judges and lawyers who came to their aide in this country.
In fact, Koeltl made it clear that Stewart had committed a serious offense by smuggling messages between her client, Sheik Omar-Abdel Rahman, and his followers in the Middle East, including a statement withdrawing the sheik's support for a cease-fire with the Egyptian government. Stewart's actions, Koeltl said, constituted ``extraordinarily severe criminal conduct" and material support for terrorism and could have had ``lethal consequences." Source
Koeltl noted, however, that neither Stewart's actions nor those of her codefendants, translator Mohammed Yousry and legal assistant Ahmed Sattar, resulted in violence in the United States or overseas. Having lashed out at Stewart for her criminal conduct, the judge executed a pivot, commending her for leading an otherwise exemplary life as a legal advocate for the poor, despised, and dispossessed. SourceAl-Qaida and all of the other Islamo-Facists claim to be advocates for the poor, despised and dispossessed of the Islamic world. Shall we subscribe to the philosophy of the sick mined liberals like Judge Koeltl and go belly up because these terrorist claim to be helping their own?
How would Koeltl know if Stewart's actions resulted in the death of anyone overseas? Or, if in the future they will result in the death of anyone overseas or in the US?

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico Activists protesting U-S immigration policies today briefly blocked three lanes of an international bridge leading into El Paso.
Hundreds of protesters marched for several miles to the Mexican side of the Sante Fe bridge, in the downtown section of Ciudad Juarez. The blocked much of the bridge for about a half hour before withdrawing.
Perhaps we can get them to just line up accross the entire border and block it, instead of constructing a fence. This would save millions of dollars!
The march served as the kickoff for the First Social Border Forum, which will begin tomorrow and run through the weekend in Ciudad Juarez. The gathering will discuss the impact of border policies on migrants, the environment and human rights.
Migrants will be able to pass as ussual. Illegal aliens will be blocked by the fence. They have no rights in America while they are standing on the Mexican side. This fence is going to impact the enviroment, like the Alaskan Pipeline?

(IsraelNN.com) A Mexican group is under investigation by Mexican and U.S. authorities for providing financial support to the Hizbullah terror organization, according to media reports.
The probe which began three months ago in response to a request by the United States was revealed in a news report Thursday.

French police face Muslim 'intifada"
Radical Muslims in France's housing estates are waging an undeclared "intifada," or uprising, against the police, with violent clashes injuring about 14 officers each day.
As the Interior Ministry announced that nearly 2,500 officers had been wounded this year, a police union declared that its members were "in a state of civil war" with Muslims in the most depressed "banlieue" estates
This will happen eventually in the USA on a much larger scale. If not with Muslims, them with the hordes of third world aliens streaming across our borders each day.
The number of attacks has risen by a third in two years. Police representatives told the newspaper Le Figaro that the "taboo" of attacking officers on patrol has been broken
The disregarding of cultural taboos is the result of diluting the values and will of the people, by masses of uninvited aliens who hold no allegiance to the country in which they reside. The only values they hold is greed. The only allegiance they swear to is "take what you all that you can because some else's hard work has provided it."

American Charged With Treason - A 28-year-old California man has been indicted on federal charges of treason and providing material support to a terrorist group for making a series of propaganda videotapes for al Qaeda, including one in which he praised the hijackers involved in the 9/11 attacks and referred to the U.S. as "enemy soil."

Female Motorist Suffers Head-On Collision, Saved by Massive Breasts
A 24-year-old Bulgarian woman is lucky to be alive after suffering a head-on collision, which saw the total destruction of both vehicles. The driver of the other car was badly hurt, but the young woman thankfully escaped serious injury.
In fact, her massive set of 40DD breasts were apparently instrumental in breaking the kinetic force of the impact, which protected her ribcage and vital organs from damage.
The only issue was the violent impact caused the silicon in her enormous endowments to immediately explode, creating an additional complication. A police expert recommended against using such a device in lieu of proper airbags.

CNN Cuts Away to Two commercial Segments at Start Of Bush's speech
After reporting all morning about North Korea's nuclear detonation, CNN's Headline News Network (HNN) announced that they would be cutting away at approximately 9:30 AM to air President Bush's address to the nation concerning the detonation.
The President finally addressed the nation at about 10:00 AM. As soon as HNN announced "Breaking News" they aired two commercial segments and then returned to Bush's address which was already halfway done.
This blogger is not a huge Bush fan, but one would assume that the thoughts of the president on one of the most significant developments
in worldwide affairs would outweigh a few commercials. There was no apology from HNN to explain it away as a technical mishap, the programming went on as usual.
HNN's complacency is only symptomatic of bigger "who cares" attitude
that pervades America. The TV media has no stomach for actual news unless it is instantly gratifying or sensational and sexy.
If anyone cares to read about President Bush's address concerning North Korea's nuclear weapon test it can be found here in its entirety:

Bush signs bill paying for new U.S. border fence
Bush signs bill paying for new U.S. border fence: "SCOTTSDALE, Arizona (Reuters) - President George W. Bush signed a law on Wednesday that will pay for hundreds of miles of new fences along the U.S.-Mexico border, a move against illegal immigration that Republicans had sought before next month's congressional elections. "
Mexico's Foreign Minister Luis Ernesto Derbez said the fences hurt bilateral relations. "Just the idea of a wall, a fence ... is an insult to good neighbors," he told a news conference on Wednesday.
Perhaps the fence would be an insult, if they were actually good
President-elect Felipe Calderon said fences were not the solution to the illegal immigration. "It does not resolve the problem and, I insist, it will make many Latin Americans take bigger risks, probably causing deaths," Calderon said on a visit to Colombia.
Oh please!!! Take responsibility for yourselves. The risk any Latin American takes is their own choice.

Southern Poverty Law Center Follows ACLU Up Slippery Slope
Sadly, just as the ACLU, The Southern Poverty Law Center has lost their way. They have started using a very broad brush when applying their own definition of “racism,“ so that it now covers anyone who dare oppose the actions of any non-white individual, group of people, or nation even when the opposition is based on criminal conduct rather than racial prejudices. The Center labels anyone opposed to illegal aliens as “Anti-immigration” thereby dispensing with the “illegal” in illegal aliens and making any opposition a racial issue.
Their brush is so broad as to unabashedly paint anyone aligned with the “Right” the same color as racists. The “Intelligence Report” features a section called “Overheard: Quotes From the Right,” which keeps a big brother-like eye on the media by publishing quotes from talk show hosts and celebrities perceived as right-wing racists.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is following the ACLU up a path on the side of a very slippery mountain. They both have reached a slope covered with the loose debris of international human rights concepts and foreign values and laws. Both of these organizations have allowed the force of their own momentum to glide them past their original objective of preserving the American values of freedom and constitutional rights through the rule of AMERICAN law. Any country that allows foreign rule of law to prevail within their borders cannot stand as a sovereign nation.
As the ACLU and The Southern Poverty Law Center place their careless footfalls on the slippery slope of which they climb, debris cascades down upon their own homeland below. Someday they might look behind them and be pleased at what they see; all of America equal, everything nice and level, all of our borders, homes, language, and culture buried under the same color debris, suffocating, and dying.

About That Fence. . .: "Cross posted from CommonSenseAmerica The newly passed bill to build a 700 mile fence at our southern border is a step in the right direction - a baby step. Here are some opinions on the subject. . . The Washington Post says: Building a fence in an attempt to secure the U.S. border with Mexico is impractical and [...]"
At least one Mexican official sees a silver lining in the tougher U.S. immigration policies, however.
Guillermo Ortiz, governor of the country’s central bank, was quoted last week as saying that a longer fence “wouldn’t be all bad.” He told a Texas newspaper last week that more fences would force Mexico’s government to create jobs at home, rather than relying on the demand for laborers in the United States.

Mexico asks Bush to veto border fence bill
Mexico asks Bush to veto border fence bill: "MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico asked President Bush on Monday to veto a Senate plan to build a border fence to keep illegal immigrants out, but acknowledged that its plea was likely to fall on deaf ears. "
Mexicans are livid about the fence plan, which is seen as a slap in the face to efforts during Fox's near-completed six-year term to come to an agreement with Washington on immigration.

E.Coli Claims Life of Beloved Hero
Popeye reportedly sealed his fated when he resorted to a can of E.Coli contaminated spinach during a bar fight in his hometown of Chester, Illinois. Several of Popeye’s friends were with him trying to convince him to stop eating spinach until the risk of E.Coli contamination passed. Popeye told his friends, “I’ve been eatin’ me spinach for seventy years. It helped me kick the crap out of a pile of Krauts and Japs. Ya think I’m gonna suddenly quit eatin it now?” Several
foreign tourists at the bar overheard Popeye’s insensitive remarks and started an altercation, which prompted Popeye to pop open, and consume the deadly can of spinach.
Ms. Olive Oyl, life long friend and lover of Popeye was with him at his home when he passed away. Ms. Oyl issued the following statement:
“Popeye became extremely ill several days after eating a can of spinach he had with him at a local tavern. He became weak and bedridden, at which time his nephews and I removed all of the spinach from his home. Still, he was able to produce a can from thin air as he always does, and he ate it while we were all in another part of the house. He called out to us and mumbled something we could not understand. He reached out for his corncob pipe and clearly said, ’Me life was so much simpler in black and white.’ He then closed his eyes and passed on.
His four nephews, Peepeye, Poopeye, Pipeye, and Pupeye are grief stricken but wish to extend their thanks for the outpouring of sympathy from Popeye’s legions of fans.”
It is unclear whether his final can of spinach contributed to his death. State health authorities are testing the can to determine if it was contaminated also.
Swee’pea, son of Ms. Oyl and whose relationship with Popeye is unclear, issued a statement from his cell on death row in New Jersey’s Trenton State Prison: “Now maybe I can get a DNA sample from the old grouchy bastard and find out is he is my father or my uncle, or both. Or, who the hell cares anyways.”
Popeye’s body will be transported to an undisclosed location on the Pacific Ocean where he will be buried at sea as per his final request.
