In the news...

Since the iPad is in the news, we have this video on the impact it has had on cats.

The great Placido Domingo was diagnosed with cancer. This citizen of the world, who could have selected any place in the world for his surgery, chose the good ole’ USA. He was successfully operated in New York by greedy doctors, in a greedy hospital. The same type of surgery that saved Mr. Domingo’s life is performed in this hospital routinely on patients on Medicaid or Medicare.

"The second way government assistance programs contribute to long-term unemployment is by providing an incentive, and the means, not to work. Each unemployed person has a 'reservation wage'—the minimum wage he or she insists on getting before accepting a job. Unemployment insurance and other social assistance programs increase [the] reservation wage, causing an unemployed person to remain unemployed longer."

Henry “KGB” Waxman, folded like a cheap camera and cancelled the hearings he had scheduled to crucify CEO’s of large corporations, who complying with the law announced how much Obamacare was going to cost them.

We all heard in the news when Waxman and Stupack stood up to the “greedy” corporations, but the mainstream media greeted the cancellation mostly with silence. They seemed reluctant to report that:

Indeed, after haggling about the overall impact of the health care mandate on firms' annual company cash flows, the staff memo acknowledged that notifying shareholders of these big one-time company write-downs was "required" by law.

Charles Krauthammer has an excellent article concerning Obama’s posturing on nuclear issues. Obama’s last meeting with heads of states from forty-seven countries has saved us from ever being nuked by Canada, Mexico or the Ukraine. Iran and North Korea did not participate. They must be terrified of Obama. He might bloviate them to death.
