It Must Suck to Be a Climavangelist

Hat Tip: Doug Giles – Big Hollywood (My long-time hero… )

Wouldn’t you hate to be a Climavangelist? What are the global warming grunts going to do now that the Apostles of the Holy Church of Climatology have been busted for cooking the “truth” (I believe the exact word they used was “tricking” us) so that we the sheeple would step-n-fetch to their Chicken Little crap?


The Hard Truth Concerning Health Care – Responsibility is a B**tch

Awww… Just in time for the holidays, Zombie writes a tremendous post on healthcare and wrapped it in hard-core truth with a blunt bow and put it under my tree. It’s probably the best present any of us could or will get this year and we don’t even know it. Read it all – stunning…

In this post Zombie spells out the real reason America hates universal healthcare – each of us down deep wonders why we should have to pay for the poor choices of others and the massive irresponsibility brazenly displayed by a ‘gimme society’ who demands that they be taken care of.

I long for the days when a doctor could charge a fair fee and we could pay with the money we earn or barter in exchange for services. When a doctor would operate out of his home or a small office. Healthcare never got into trouble in this country until insurance companies, pharmaceutical giants and the government stepped in and said that they collectively knew what was best for us and that they would ‘take care’ of Americans. Right… All the government has managed to do is bankrupt the US and her citizens, break the spirits of our most esteemed physicians and rape the system of every dime they can get while coveting ever more power in the name of the elite. Trust me – those said elite will never have to worry about healthcare, money, slaves, expenses or any of those other sordid details that the rabble worry about. Let them eat cake! Then the government will pay for their diet and liposuction thus enslaving the slaves even more.

Zombie bluntly spells it out and it’s about damn time someone did. Key excerpt:

Since it’s nearly impossible to sort out who is personally responsible for which ailments, the only logical solution is to let each person pay for their own care, because that way there’s nothing left to argue about. But if we share costs, we share blame, and that’s the origin of resentment and anger that the average American feels about socialized medicine.

Instead of bankrupting the country to pay for foolish people’s foolish decisions, I want to take a giant Sunderhaus finger and poke each American in the thigh and shout: “Shape up!”

So instead of crying, “I deserve it!” and looking for the next handout or place in line at the government teat, why don’t we all do what our founding fathers did and handle it ourselves? Isn’t that what Capitalism is? Isn’t that the American way? As far as I’m concerned, the government can stuff their healthcare, their taxes, and their suppressive, power-grabbing, liberty-sucking laws right where the sun don’t shine. I’m proud to be a God-loving, gun-toting Tea-Partying redneck. This is one redneck who has read history and appreciates the parallels between our current government and the French Revolution. Viva la Independence!

  • Happy Bill of Rights Day from the Libertarian Party! (Wes Benedict) – Today is Bill of Rights Day. I don’t know how much we’ll hear about it in the media, but you and I know how important the Bill of Rights is. The Founders recognized that it was important to be specific about what government must not do.
  • Danny Tarkanian Has Some ‘Splainin’ to Do (Chuck Muth) – In a Channel 3 interview with television station mogul and former university system chancellor Jim Rogers, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Danny Tarkanian had this to say:
  • Taking Over a Political Operation is No Tea Party (Chuck Muth) – Swadeep Nigam, now former Treasurer of the Clark County Republican Party (CCRP), confirmed for us yesterday what had been predicted and widely suspected since Tea Party activists took effective control of the CCRP during last June’s elections.
  • Your Highly Trained Government Workers in Action (Chuck Muth) – OK, Nevada News & Views reader Robert Smith didn’t actually go to Carson City, but he did send a rather simple question to the Secretary of State’s office, currently being mismanaged by Democrat SoS Ross Miller, in the state capital. Here’s the question Mr. Smith submitted via the SoS website:
  • Reid Dishes Out $100 Million Worth of Earmarks (Sean Whaley/Nevada News Bureau) – U.S. Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid has announced he has secured nearly $100 million for projects in Nevada through the passage of the Transportation Omnibus Appropriations Act.

Could Gay Marriage Help Save Nevada’s Economy?

The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law released a new study this week which “estimates that extending marriage to same-sex couples would boost the New Jersey economy by almost $200 million during the next three years, creating approximately 1,400 jobs and generating over $15 million in revenues for the state budget.”

Can you just imagine what it would do for Nevada? I mean, what gay couple in their right mind wouldn’t rather to go to Las Vegas than New Jersey? And talk about economic diversification – all without raising taxes!! Vunderbar!

If wonder if, when Sen. Bill Raggio says “everything is on the table” to address Nevada’s budget crisis, he means this? Maybe I’ll ask him the next time we have lunch together – which, if he has his way, will be the day after hell freezes over.


  • Nothing left to cut, huh? Even the Las Vegas Sun editorial page, no friend of limited-government conservatives, is outraged by THIS ginormous waste of taxpayer dollars.
  • Gov. Jim Gibbons (R) didn’t let the opportunity to taunt Senate Majority Leader Steven Horsford (D-Las Vegas) over Horsford’s brush with a public relations black eye for parking in a handicapped spot. Read all about it HERE

  • “Sharron Angle has a 3-point plan to begin restoring America’s economy and renew consumer and business confidence in America’ future: Shut down and return all of the remaining TARP funds for national debt reduction. Shut down the failed stimulus program and use all remaining funds to reduce the national debt. Freeze the 2010 federal budget at the 2009 level, not including the $787 billion failed stimulus.” – From fundraising appeal distributed by NewsMax.com for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle
  • “(Jon) Ralston says he’d be astounded if (Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sue) Lowden can reach the $1 million mark in her first campaign report, but if she can show she’s raised $500,000 or so, which would be close to twice what (fellow GOP candidate Danny) Tarkanian first reported, it might send a signal to GOP honchos and rank-and-file that she is the candidate to beat in the crowded Republican primary.” – George Knapp, CityLife, 12/10/09
