God Bless Texas

“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.” [link]

Excellent job Texas, keep up the good fight!

Quote for the Day

"Most Americans aren't the sort of citizens the Founding Fathers expected; they are contented serfs. Far from being active critics of government, they assume that its might makes it right." – Joseph Sobran

For the Sake of the Children: Is It Now Time to Ban Health Care Workers?

"Hundreds of patients in Chicago-area hospitals, including children, are at risk for tuberculosis after a doctor-in-training tested positive for the disease... Hundreds have been exposed. At Children's Memorial alone, it is estimated that approximately 150 children and 300 employees were exposed. So far, no one, including the resident's family members, has tested positive for the disease." [link]

What is the world coming to. Physicians are already regulated, registered, tested, etc...by the government and yet this still happens. I have already wrote about the dangers of physicians and health care professionals to any one's well being. They are in fact the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States. Yet we continue to come up with these problems. Evidently the registration is not working as intended, I guess for the sake of the children and the safety of all involved we should just ban this profession all together.

He Sure Sent Them a Message...

"Undeterred by U.S. and French hostage rescues that killed seven bandits, Somali pirates brazenly hijacked three more ships in the Gulf of Aden, the key waterway that's become the focal point of the world's fight against piracy." [link]

The "bold" strategic maneuvering of Obama and Secretary of State Clinton really seem to have made the Somali pirates think twice about hijacking another ship. In fact they thought so hard about it that the hijacked 3. I guess now instead of a chuckle from Clinton, we might get to see a good honest belly roll full fledged laugh-a-thon. I can also assume that it will take roughly three to four days for Obama to issue any type of statement, possibly longer.
