Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Liberal is synonym for stupid.   Dim witted Senators want to wreck economy to solve imaginary problem:

WASHINGTON (Reuters [1]) – A new Senate bill aimed at battling global warming would impose new limits on carbon dioxide pollution from factories, utilities and vehicles, while expanding heavy-polluting domestic oil production and nuclear power generation.

The legislation, which is certain to face tough opposition from Republicans and even some Democrats, will be formally unveiled Wednesday by Democratic Senator John Kerry and Independent Senator Joseph Lieberman.

Anthropogenic global warming is a hoax.

Obama Care keeps getting worse, or Dumbo lays an egg, from Politico [2]:

BlackBerry buff President Obama [4]declared war on technology yesterday — singling out Apple’s super-popular iPods and iPads for criticism.

Obama — whose election was credited, in part, to his skillful use of modern media, from smart phones to Twitter [5]to Flickr [6]— yesterday told college graduates that high-tech gizmos and apps are straining American democracy.

“With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations — none of which I know how to work — information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation,” Obama said at Hampton University [7]in Virginia.

Make no mistake about it, letting old people die is a lot cheaper than spending the kind of money required to keep them alive and well. If a government-run medical system is going to save any serious amount of money, it is almost certain to do so by sacrificing the elderly
In Chicago only political supporters on the mayor are allowed to have handguns.   Under Obama care, those those don’t donate to the proper candidate simply will not get medical treatment.
