Doesn’t Kansas deserve two Senators?

My friend Milton Wolf, Republican is running for Senator from Kansas, trying to unseat Republican Pat Roberts. Why should you readers in Kansas support Milton Wolf? Let me count the ways

He is not part of the GOP etablishment

He has not been in Washington for decades

Simply out he is a BETTER choice for Senate

And really, shouldn’t a Senator representing Kansas live in Kansas?

Pat Roberts (R-VA) Wants 6 More Years in Washington to Do What Exactly? http://t.co/VaNy5xvh6S #47years

— Dr. Milton Wolf (@miltonwolfmd) March 25, 2014

Wolf’s campaign ad explains that Roberts is really more of a Virginian by association than legal residence:

Hey Kansas, vote for Wolf!

Milton Wolf for Senate? Absolutely!

For those readers in the great state of Kansas, a great opportunity is knocking. Are you tired of politicians? Tired of a government that has forgotten its place? Tired of our elected representatives represent themselves and not their constituents?

Well, if you are, then take my advice, support Milton Wolf as your next Senator. You want to change Washington? Change the people you send to Washington. Milton Wolf would be an important first step.

I know Milton Wolf, he is a good man, a man who I believe will fight for his state, and for Conservative values. A man who will not go to Washington to serve himself, but to serve his state, A man who will abide by the Constitution, and a man who not be cowed by the politics as usual cronies!

Here is the Milton Wolf for Senate page and a nice campaign video

Take my advice, and do all you can to elect Milton Wolf to the United States Senate!

A peace plan we can all get behind

Commenting on the latest screwy idea from Liberals, a Department of Peacebuilding, Milton Wolf comes up with something that might actually bring more peace

Let’s rename the Department of Defense back to it’s previous name, The Department of War, and let’s get back to the business of winning them for a change. Instead of sending troops all over the globe under the slippery context of defense — or worse yet, peace — let’s return to the Department of War mindset when we actually won wars — unambiguously, unmistakably and unapologetically won wars.

It’s a sobering decision to go to war, or at least it should be. It’s a last resort option, like open-heart surgery, but sometimes it is necessary. When we hide behind euphemisms like peacekeeping or peacebuilding or even defense, we fool ourselves into protracted and seemingly inextricable conflicts. Our enemies declare war on us but we refuse to declare war on them. In the end, this is worse than war itself.

Want peace? Then decide wisely, decide soberly when the dangers before us warrant war and then officially declare it and unambiguously win it. Want peace? Then forget the hippies; call in the Department of War. 

Brilliant! Speak softly? Sure! Carry a big stick? Ye! And when you use that stick, use it with such force that no one will ever want to make you use it again!

 

Ah yes, politically incorrect cartoons

Milton Wolf looks back at when cartoons were good! Imagine how cartoons like Looney Tunes, Woody Woodpecker, or Tom and Jerry would be received by today’s bed-wetting Liberals

Here are a few classics

 

Hey, whadda ya know, Ann Coulter WAS right about Mitt after all

Remember this from Ann Coulter? Milton Wolf does

Sometimes you’re right but for the wrong reasons. Still, as we sift through the postmortems of this election and the last-minute effect of Chris Christie’s bromance with Barack Obama, remember that he was Ann Coulter’s first choice for Republican nominee.

Yep, Ann the Conservative, sure liked two less than Conservative guys in 2012.

 

Claire McCaskill: Unemployment is great because it reduces carbon emissions

Remember this the next time a Democrat says they care about workers! Via Milton Wolf

At the end of the clip, she claims she was being sarcastic. Look, I am a sarcastic guy, and that was not sarcasm, that was a Leftist showing how much Marxist Kool-Aid she has consumed.

 

Great News! New Medicare Rules will make you feel all warm and fuzzy………..

 

Bad News! These rules will also kill old folks. But don’t take that from me, ask a doctor, like Milton Wolf

This is the vicious cycle of big government: Institute top-down, central planning to solve problems, real or imagined. Blame its failures on the greed of others. Institute more top-down, central planning to address those problems, real or imagined. Repeat.

Here’s the government’s latest assault on patients: Medicare fines over hospitals’ readmitted patients.

As of Monday, Medicare will start fining hospitals that have too many patients readmitted within 30 days of discharge due to complications. The penalties are part of a broader push under President Barack Obama’s health care law to improve quality while also trying to save taxpayers money.

Sounds great. What could possibly go wrong?

As one central planner put it:

If General Motors and Toyota issue warranties for their vehicles, hospitals should have some similar obligation when a patient gets a new knee or a stent to relieve a blocked artery, Santa contends. “People go to the hospital to get their problem solved, not to have to come back,” he said.

Weak analogy. Would you hold GM or Toyota responsible if someone drove their new car off the lot and then crashed it because they were driving recklessly? Oh, but patients always follow their doctors’ advice, you say? Uh huh.

But setting aside the obvious structural flaw of this plan that punishes hospitals for outcomes that are beyond their control, consider the incentives it creates. The government is now incentivizing hospitals to deny care. 

No two patients are the same. Some are just sicker than others. Some will need more hospitalizations no matter how excellent their care is. Under this new plan, hospitals are incentivized to avoid the sickest patients because they’ll have a higher likelihood of bouncing back and triggering the fines. You better hope your mom isn’t one of them. 

And if your mom does get sick again after a recent hospitalization, the government has just created a powerful incentive for the hospital to deny her readmission. Good luck with that.

Scary stuff to ponder, both my parents are on Medicare, the last thing they need, or that I need for that matter, is to have that extra worry when they get sick. More at Forbes

The Obama administration’s latest target for health care cost control is Medicare hospital re-admissions. Nearly 20% of Medicare patients discharged from a hospital require re-hospitalization within 30 days, costing the government $17 billion per year. The federal government regards many of these re-admissions as “avoidable” wasteful spending. Under ObamaCare, the government has begun imposing financial penalties on hospitals deemed to be readmitting too many Medicare patients within 30 days for pneumonia, heart failure, or myocardial infarct (heart attack). The presumption is that the hospitals didn’t provide proper care initially or didn’t assure appropriate post-hospital care.

Last month, the federal government announced the first round of penalties. To many experts’ surprise, the list included some of the nation’s top hospitals including Massachusetts General Hospital (ranked #1 in the latest US News report), Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, and University of Michigan Hospital. Over 2200 hospitals across the country were penalized.

In response, hospitals will undoubtedly seek to improve any truly substandard patient care. But many hospitals may also be tempted to game the system to improve their readmission statistics.

There’s already worrisome precedent for such gaming. A recent article in Health Affairs reported a sharp rise in hospitals transferring sick ER patients to short-term “observation” beds (for up to 72 hours sometimes), which don’t count as true hospital admissions. This rise coincided with Medicare payment rules aimed at reducing hospital admissions. Hospital admissions fell, but patients received lower levels of care and likely incurred greater out-of-pocket expenses.

The ObamaCare rules will also pressure doctors to delay re-admissions. Dr. Shabbir Hossain described caring for a woman as an outpatient whose congestive heart failure recurred shortly after hospital discharge. Despite his best efforts, her condition deteriorated daily. He admitted breathing “a sigh of relief” when he got her safely past the 30-day “clock,” which meant the local hospital would be more willing to re-admit her.

Much more at the link, and it will scare you. Odd, Liberals have often decried the role that cost plays in health care, they loathe “greedy” insurance companies that consider cost, yet, ObamaCare has made that worse than ever, and in universal health care, which many Libs long for, there IS no option other than government care. I guess it is OK with the Left if the government pulls the plug on you to save money.

 

Is Harry Reid the REO Speedwagon of politics?

 

Milton Wolf, in writing about how sucktacular Obamanomics is has this line about Harry Reid

From phony polls to false accusation, Team Obama is flailing and trying desperately to talk about anything besides Barack’s record. And now this song is stuck in my head…

[Harry] Reid uses the REO Speedwagon approach to fact-gathering: “I heard it from a friend who … heard it from a friend who … heard it from another Mitt’s been messin’ around.”

Go read all of Milton’s column, it is very good, and for all you REO fans out there, yes, you, in the red T-shirt with the mullet, here is an REO classic

Obamacare individual mandate upheld by John Roberts and his four Left Wing buddies, the bloggers react!

I am what you might call angry, and so are many others. and here are some of their reactions.

Zion’s Trumpet links Ed’s post, and offers his own take

Also keep in mind that all this happened back when the GOP still had a shot at getting Obama’s health care monstrosity overruled by our nation’s highest court. Since that option is no longer on the table, we the people have no alternative but to rid our federal government of every parasitic leftist we possibly can, even if that means replacing some of them with – shall we say – less than hard-right Republicans. To do otherwise is to commit national suicide, and even some Ron Paul supporters are now beginning to recognize that fact.

Mitt – if I may be so bold as to address you by your nickname – all you have to do to win the White House at this point is refrain from saying anything truly stupid or offensive to conservatives, stick to the topics of the economy and ObamaCare, and try to pick a running mate who isn’t as big a RINO as you are. Might I suggest Marco Rubio… or Allen West?

As for you, Barack, you’re political death warrant has just been signed, sealed and delivered by five smarmy, activist lawyers in black robes, and the genuinely comical thing is that you’re too dumb to realize it. While I’m sure the Jurassic press will join you in declaring victory today, I’m equally as certain that the real victors in all this will be the people of this country once they throw your sorry butt out of office and begin the process of retaking their liberties from a degenerate and dictatorial federal government.

Chris at Wyblog warns that we better start saving up for that mandate, oh, sorry Mr. Roberts TAX that makes us buy a Volt!

The government is our master. We The People are powerless before it.

The Constitution means nothing. Limited government? Fuggedaboudit.

Someone needs to dig up Thomas Jefferson and have him beat Chief Justice Roberts over the head with the Declaration of Independence. Repeatedly.

Not that it would do any good. The damage is done.

The Obamacare abomination survives. Every American is compelled by the force of law to purchase health insurance. Because the individual mandate is in actuality a tax.

Welcome to the United States of Greece. Where our Socialist Overlords have big plans for us serfs. It’s been said that the power to tax is the power to destroy.

Liberty was destroyed today. We’ll probably never get it back.

UPDATE 28 Jun 2012 11:39:
The more I think about it, the madder I get.

Even if Obamacare gets repealed a terrible precedent has been set. Congress can tax our behavior. Get too fat? Pay the Obesity Tax. Don’t buy that Chevy Volt? Pay the Fossil Fuel Waster Tax. Homeschool your kids? Pay the Support Your Local Teachers Union Tax.

Nanny-state busybodies like Mike Bloomberg are having an orgasm right now.

Milton Wolf warned us yesterday that, in the end, we would have to kill this beast legislatively, he was right

Weasel Zippers reminds us that Romney lists job one as “Repeal Obamacare”

Charles Krauthammer offers his view on why Roberts did it

It’s the judiciary’s Nixon-to-China: Chief Justice John Roberts joins the liberal wing of the Supreme Court and upholds the constitutionality of Obamacare. How? By pulling off one of the great constitutional finesses of all time. He managed to uphold the central conservative argument against Obamacare, while at the same time finding a narrow definitional dodge to uphold the law — and thus prevented the court from being seen as having overturned, presumably on political grounds, the signature legislation of this administration.

Why did he do it? Because he carries two identities. Jurisprudentially, he is a constitutional conservative. Institutionally, he is chief justice and sees himself as uniquely entrusted with the custodianship of the court’s legitimacy, reputation and stature.

Go read it all, I think Krauthammer is exactly right, but I disagree on one point. Roberts has, in my view, discredited ANY standing he had as a constitutional conservative. He placed his principles and his duty on the back burner to help the “image” of the Court? If so, then he has forgotten what duty is, and is a disgrace!

The Right Scoop has Rush’s take

The Other McCain has Michelle Bachman’s response 

Jill has a great post up including this

The bottom line from the dissent:

Scalia/Kennedy/Thomas/Alito dissent calls decision “a vast judicial overreaching.”

John Hayward comments via Twitter (older tweets at bottom):

You are now the property of the State, which can levy a special tax against you, if you don’t spend your money as ordered.

Remember, Obama didn’t just lie about ObamaCare being a tax. He LAUGHED at the idea, on national TV.

Prognostication winners: those who said the ruling would be both a win and loss for Obama. His tax hike on the poor survived the Court.

Shouldn’t a law be judged on what it actually says – i.e. “mandate” – rather than being rewritten by justices to keep it alive?

So the Court just changed a law nobody read to tell the authors what they really meant.

Hey, Obama voters! Your boy just hit poor and middle class Americans with the biggest TAX in history!

So statists can claim anything isn’t a tax, to get it past voters, then the Court will change it to a tax later.

So basically, the Court rewrote a clearly unconstitutional law, in direct opposition to the statements of its authors, to keep it alive.

Yeah, pretty much what I thought. Goodbye, Constitution, it was nice knowing you.

So Obama lied, said O-care’s not a tax, but SCOTUS says it is. Thanks for voting for this guy, chumps.

Jeff Goldstein at Protein Wisdom has this nugget

Thus, behold:

The Federal Government does not have the power to order people to buy health insurance. Section 5000A would therefore be unconstitutional if read as a command. The Federal Government does have the power to impose a tax on those without health insurance. Section 5000A is therefore constitutional, because it can reasonably be read as a tax.

I won’t have to unpack that for longtime readers of this site, but do allow me to unpack it — as I’ve done with similar linguistically incoherent statements in the past — for those who will spend today bemoaning a ruling that, when viewed from their own intepretative perspective (rather than their policy desires), they can’t honestly fault.

To wit:  “Section 5000A is therefore constitutional, because it can reasonably be read as a tax.”

Fine.  How is this the case?  Because, per Roberts,  the mandate looks something like a tax might look and could look — much in the way a cloud formation may look like a randy sheep three way, if you’re inclined to see it that way.  But unless you believe God or Nature intended to paint a sheep orgy in the gas and water vapor floating above Peoria, the clouds aren’t actually a sheep orgy save your intent to see it as such.

Intentionalism just is.

But, you argue, it clearly wasn’t intended as a tax (or if it was, there’s no way of ever knowing that, given that it was presented as a penalty and not a tax) — because the President publicly denied that it was a tax, and it was passed expressly as a penalty.  Therefore, it was signified into being — at the point of passage — as a penalty.  And a penalty is not a tax.

Or is it?

Intentionalism just is.

According to the CJ, a penalty is indeed a tax when it can be viewed as a tax for purposes of a ruling.  Meaning, a penalty is a tax when a Justice decides to rewrite the law to turn a penalty into a tax.  Which he justifies because the way the penalty looks to him suggests that “reasonable”  people (or philosopher kings) can, if they squint — and if they ignore the intent that turned the law into law in the first place, and turned a set of marks into a set of signs, into language — see a tax.  How that is “reasonable” is anyone’s guess:   we know in no uncertain terms that Obama and the Dems who passed the law didn’t devise the mandate as a tax (despite what they later argued); for one to conclude that it is reasonably possible to “read” a penalty as a tax,  therefore, what c0mes to count as “reasonable” must be redefined as “ignoring what we know to be true”.  And that seems antithetical to “reason.”

Erick Erickson throws his back out, trying to defend Roberts

Having gone through the opinion, I am not going to beat up on John Roberts. I am disappointed, but I want to make a few points.

First, I get the strong sense from a few anecdotal stories about Roberts over the past few months and the way he has written this opinion that he very, very much was concerned about keeping the Supreme Court above the partisan fray and damaging the reputation of the Court long term. It seems to me the left was smart to make a full frontal assault on the Court as it persuaded Roberts.

Good Freaking Grief! Tell me Erickson is not this stupid. If Roberts was swayed by public opinion, or by what he perceived MIGHT be a negative spin the certain people, then he is unfit for the highest court! He is there to rule on the CONSTITUTIONALITY of laws, not make his decisions to impress anyone!

Second, in writing his case, Roberts forces everyone to deal with the issue as a political, not a legal issue.

Oh, so the constitutionality of a law is “political” now, and not legal? Good Lord who is this buffoon posing as Erickson? I am with BC on this

What is sad is that a conservative republican blogger is dumb enough put this stupidity out for review — and think he making an intelligent point.

The reality is that John Roberts have just given his stamp of approval on the biggest governmental encroachment on American liberty in our country’s history. This is not just about the individual mandate.

The supreme court has just set a legal precedent saying that it is okay for the federal government to force you to buy a service and penalize you if you don’t.

Now, thanks to John Roberts, if they decide it is in your best interest to buy a workout machine, a house alarm system, a book,  a Communist government indoctrination video — or anything else for that matter — they can do it and it will be simple labeled as a tax.

Someone needs to tell this fat bastard to think, or to shut up!

Dear Erick, your head called, it is stuck in your ass, sorry, but I am done having patience for these “thoughtful” Republicans who excuse cowards like Roberts!

Nancy Pelosi credits a former fat, drunk disgrace for this, and Doug Powers skewers her!

Gag.

Mary Jo Kopechne unavailable for comment.

“Ted can now rest. He’s finally f*#%ed everybody in the country.”

Actually, stamping Ted Kennedy’s name on what will eventually amount to a massive tax increase for increasing numbers of Americans as companies dump out of insuring their employees privately isn’t entirely inappropriate.

Maybe Ted’s been reincarnated. If John Roberts is spotted drinking Chivas tonight and chasing tail at Au Bar it’ll be confirmed.

I might be updating later, so please check back. I do hope this fires everyone up, and keeps them that way. REMEMBER in NOVEMBER!

And from that moment, Massachusetts was known as………..

Nannychusetts! Via Pat Dollard

Boston Herald: Bake sales, the calorie-laden standby cash-strapped classrooms, PTAs and booster clubs rely on, will be outlawed from public schools as of Aug. 1 as part of new no-nonsense nutrition standards, forcing fundraisers back to the blackboard to cook up alternative ways to raise money for kids.

At a minimum, the nosh clampdown targets so-called “competitive” foods — those sold or served during the school day in hallways, cafeterias, stores and vending machines outside the regular lunch program, including bake sales, holiday parties and treats dished out to reward academic achievement. But state officials are pushing schools to expand the ban 24/7 to include evening, weekend and community events such as banquets, door-to-door candy sales and football games. The Departments of Public Health and Education contend clearing tables of even whole milk and white bread is necessary to combat an obesity epidemic affecting a third of the state’s 1.5 million students. But parents argue crudites won’t cut it when the bills come due on athletic equipment and band trips.

“If you want to make a quick $250, you hold a bake sale,” said Sandy Malec, vice president of the Horace Mann Elementary School PTO in Newtonville.

Maura Dawley of Scituate said the candy bars her 15-year-old son brought to school to help pay for a youth group trip to Guatemala “sold like wildfire.” She worries the ban “would seriously affect the bottom line of the PTOs.

Milton Wolf adds his take

Well, it’s about time. If we can’t be trusted to buy our health insurance, or car or even light bulb, then we certainly can’t be trusted to sell each other brownies to raise money for the local PTA. Thank goodness our beneficent government is willing to decide what we should eat.

That IS what the Nanny Staters want folks, never forget it!

Yep, even without the mandate, Obamacare still sucks

Do0n’t believe me? Ask a doctor, Milton Wolf

It’s Not Just the Mandate: ObamaCare’s Other Infringements
The bill seizes liberty from doctors and insurance firms, too.

•Doctors must purchase and use expensive electronic medical record systems.

•Doctors must electronically record certain patient data such as ethnicity, BMI (body mass index), blood pressure, and smoking status — and turn over patient data to the government upon request.

•Doctors treating Medicare patients must practice according to government “quality” guidelines or face economic penalties.

•Insurance companies must offer numerous “free” benefits, including various preventive health services, birth control, and coverage of “children” up to age 26.

•Insurers may not raise their rates to cover these new expenses unless the government agrees those rate increases are “reasonable.”

•An Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) of unelected bureaucrats will set prices for Medicare services that will lead to de facto rationing.

Read it all and check out Dr. Hsieh’s blog We Stand FIRM.

This bill is a disaster for America. This nation might need some work on our medical insurance situation, but this bill does nothing to help those needs.

Is this still America?

Milton Wolf, one of the true thinkers in our nation, writes at the Washington Times about our slowly vanishing liberty!

Public schools in San Antonio have installed video cameras, not to monitor for foul play or intruders, but to spy on kids’ eating habits. Federal food police in North Carolina have begun confiscating preschoolers’ homemade lunches because they didn’t meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines. Aghast parents have noted that one 4-year-old’s confiscated lunch of a turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips and apple juice sounds more nutritious than the state-provided chicken nuggets. But that entirely misses the point. In America, parents are free to give their kids pizza and pudding with Twinkies and Twizzlers, and the government has no right to intrude.

Under the sweeping powers of Obamacare, the state has forced Catholic institutions to choose between their God and their government by demanding that they violate their own beliefs and provide birth control to their employees. Their insulting rationalization? Most Catholic women are bad Catholics and don’t follow the teachings of the church anyway. What’s more, the government has deified itself to determine which organizations are Catholic enough to be exempt. What’s next, mandated pork-chop night at the synagogues? Bacon should be a right.

Brace yourself; I’m just getting warmed up.

Armed federal agents of the Department of Education conducted a pre-dawn SWAT-style raid on the home of a Stockton, Calif., man. Read that again: The Department of Education has taken up arms against the citizenry. Meanwhile, federal Transportation Security Administration officials routinely grope our 6-year-olds and conveniently arrange that attractive women are subjected to their full-body porn cameras. Not even George Orwell’s 1984 dystopian police state went that far.

So the same federal government that waved the white flag in southern Arizona by posting signs warning American citizens to avoid American soil – effectively surrendering an 80-mile swath of our border to Mexican drug cartels – at least has the wherewithal to secure your child’s private parts.

But the heavy-handed authoritarians aren’t finished harassing your kids yet. Police officers in Midway, Ga., closed down three girls’ front-yard lemonade stand. Why? “We were not aware of how the lemonade was made, who made the lemonade, of what the lemonade was made with, so we acted accordingly by city ordinance.” Well, at least the enterprise-crushing control freaks can’t be accused of age discrimination.

Fortunately, the feds are concentrating on the most ominous threats against Americans: fresh dairy milk and the ruthless Amish farmers who push their addictive contraband. “I can’t believe in 2012 the federal government is raiding Amish farmers at gunpoint, all over a basic human right to eat natural food,” said one milk addict. Believe it.

This is a GREAT piece, please go read it all, and then get mad about it. Then VOTE for candidates that will turn this madness around!

Excuse me Mr. President, but did you say fair?

Liberals love to use the word fair, as in  “The rich do not pay their fair share, well Milton Wolf has some questions, via the WSJ for the president.

Barack Obama is centering his re-election strategy on class warfare and the politics of jealousy. He speaks of economic justice and fairness and sews the seeds of resentment that divides our nation. OK, fine. Stephen Moore has A Fairness Quiz for the President….

Is it fair that some of Mr. Obama’s largest campaign contributors received federal loan guarantees on their investments in renewable energy projects that went bust?

Is it fair that federal employees receive benefits that are nearly 50% higher than those of private-sector workers whose taxes pay their salaries, according to the Congressional Budget Office?

Is it fair that President Obama sends his two daughters to elite private schools that are safer, better-run, and produce higher test scores than public schools in Washington, D.C.—but millions of other families across America are denied that free choice and forced to send their kids to rotten schools?

Is it fair that wind, solar and ethanol producers get billions of dollars of subsidies each year and pay virtually no taxes, while the oil and gas industry—which provides at least 10 times as much energy—pays tens of billions of dollars of taxes while the president complains that it is “subsidized”?

Is it fair that those who work full-time jobs (and sometimes more) to make ends meet have to pay taxes to support up to 99 weeks of unemployment benefits for those who don’t work?

There are more, and they are worth the read. To be sure the Left has bastardized the words fair and unfair. And the Liberal base eats that type of class warfare up. Just another example of just what a childish and self-centered ideology Liberalism is.

Aleister at American Glob has an interesting video. A rich union boss telling poor Americans that life is not, say it with me now……

Well now isn’t that………..

Mitt Romney on Obamneycare “It’s not worth getting angry about”

Via Milton Wolf who thinks it worth getting very upset about!

Mitt Romney himself has said he will keep parts ObamaCare. Mitt Romney advisor Norm Coleman doubled down: “We’re not going to do repeal, but would instead pull a page out of Bill Clinton’s play book: Mend it don’t end it. Team Romney is surrendering the single largest vulnerability of Barack Obama. Barack’s top advisor David Axelrod thanks Mitt Romney for defending ObamaCare.

It gets worse. Mitt Romney on ObamneyCare: “It’s not worth getting angry about.”

Read the whole thing, Milton lays out what Mitt will not admit, how big a failure Romneycare has been.
