Stupidest Quote of the week: Congress Mandating Health Insurance Like States Requiring Driver’s Licenses

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) recently stated that the constitutional authority for Congress to require individuals to purchase health insurance is the same that allowed for Medicaid and Medicare, and for states to require driver's licenses.

The last time I knew, Medicare and Medicaid were not mandatory, and for your information Senator Warner, although you do have to get a drivers license to drive in these 50 states, it is not mandatory that you obtain a drivers license if you don't wish to drive. No one is making you get one whether you want one or not and no one is fining you if you don't.

What a ridiculous comparison!

The Warner goes on to say that people without health care are currently going into hospitals and being treated and we are paying the bill and that is unfair. Huh? Isn't the Obama administration trying to tell us that there are 46 million people out there without health care who are at risk, now suddenly they can walk into a hospital and get it for free, it's just that we pay for it.

Well, again, Senator Warner, if 46 million people without health care are actually able to still get free health care on our dime, then there are actually no persons in the country who cannot get health care as you Democrats keep saying there are.

Furthermore, Senator Warner, wouldn't it be fair to say that if we are paying for those 46 million without health care that logic would dictate that we will be paying for 300 million people to get health care if the government run health care program passes in the Senate. That would mean that we would be paying for 254 million more than we are now.

So tell me again why we would want ObamaCare.

What a joke, and these people are running the country, scary.

Fort Hood Shooter Attended Same Radical Mosque As 9/11 Hijackers

Things are beginning to unravel as you dig deeper into the Fort Hood Shooter's background. It has now been reportedby the Telegraph, a British newspaper,that Major Nidal Malik Hasan attended a mosque which was led by a radical imam who was reported to be a "spiritual adviser" to three of the 9/11 hijackers.
The preacher at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Yemeni scholar who was banned from addressing a meeting in London by video link in August because he is accused of supporting attacks on British troops and backing terrorist organisations.

Hasan's eyes "lit up" when he mentioned his deep respect for al-Awlaki's teachings, according to a fellow Muslim officer at the Fort Hood base in Texas, the scene of Thursday's horrific shooting spree.

Charles Allen, a former under-secretary for intelligence at the Department of Homeland Security, has described al-Awlaki, who now lives in Yemen, as an "al-Qaeda supporter, and former spiritual leader to three of the September 11 hijackers... who targets US Muslims with radical online lectures encouraging terrorist attacks from his new home in Yemen".

Wow, a British newspaper can find this information, but the military couldn't. Too much PC going on.
