At 5am this morning I am greeted by the headline stating "Obama: Too much debt could fuel double-dip recession."
President Barack Obama gave his sternest warning yet about the need to contain rising U.S. deficits, saying on Wednesday that if government debt were to pile up too much, it could lead to a double-dip recession.
What could I possibly add to that?
At the same time and just inches away is: Senate Democrats plan to unveil healthcare bill
Will someone please tell me how much is "too much debt?"
The details of the worked over legislation will be released at 5pm ET. Anyone want to bet abortion is back in? I didn't think so. However, take time to read what Senator Jim DeMint posted on Red State:
[...]To begin debate on this new version of Obamacare, Reid will play a shell game. He needs 60 senators to “vote to proceed” to an unrelated piece of legislation, and once he clears that hurdle he will strike that bill’s text and insert his new health care bill. But don’t be fooled by senators that will say they oppose a government takeover but just wanted to allow debate on health care, they are not being honest.
The simple fact is this: Any senator that votes to proceed to the Reid-Obama bill is voting for a government takeover of health care.
Please take a moment and read the whole article (it's not long), so you will know what it is you must do. It was a bit of an eye opener for me.
The The Republican Alternative by Peter Ferrara tells us again what any rational person already knows. You don't need 2000+ pages to "fix" the health care delivery system in this country.

Sarah Coming to Coeur d'Alene
While I have never been one to line up to meet a celebrity, when I found out Sarah Palin was coming to Coeur d' Alene, my first thought was "cool". Then I read on The Blog Prof what happened on her first stop in Michigan, and things are not looking good for getting my book (obtained off a huge stack at Costco yesterday) signed. Lining up at midnight would never make it onto my radar. I would consider showing up at 5am, but only if I know there will be porta potties. Just sayin'...
The other difference is the Fred Meyer, where she will be doing the book signing, is not in a mall. It is a free standing store and also doesn't have a very large parking lot Do I want to stand outside on Dec. 10 in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho? Not so much!

The Reaganite Republican was nice enough to gather together some humor for hump day to entertain us. Thanks RR
Father Powell clears up some issues:
How do we distinguish between "serving sacrificially" and "being subservient"? Or, as one commenter puts it: what's the difference between rendering sacrificial service and "being a doormat"? read the restI lean toward the doormat, thank you very much!
And this doormat needs to get some work done - even though there is much, much more to say...
