What is "Right Wing"?

 by Thom Pain

OK, here we go again. (Words mean something, and we let the pervs control the language.)
What is "the right"?? Do they mean the people who believe in and trust that the U.S. Constitution was and is a Contract by and between the States? Do they mean the people that understand that the U.S. Constitution's purpose is to protect us from our Government by strictly limiting it's powers so as to protect our liberties and our right to pursue our own happiness, with minimal (and explicitly delineated) restriction? Do they mean the people who respect and trust that the U.S. Constitution is the basis for ALL legitimate laws (and regulations)?
If so, then there is NO SUCH THING AS "THE RIGHT"! We are THE CENTER. Envision it as a circle (CENTER = Constitution, with all variants departing from it as rings surrounding the CENTER), vs a line (running from LEFT thru the CENTER (Constitution) to the RIGHT (which doesn't represent anything), where the LIBS would try to make people believe is where the "gun-toting whackos live.
Don't let them control the message! Conservatives are IN THE VERY CENTER. All the deviations from this CENTER are varying degrees of Anti-Constitutional deviants, which makes them anarchists.

Clean energy progress too slow to limit global warming - report (It's all over now)

Reuters ^ | 4/17/13 | Nina Chestney

(Reuters) - The development of low-carbon energy is progressing too slowly to limit global warming, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said on Wednesday.

With power generation still dominated by coal and governments failing to increase investment in clean energy, top climate scientists have said that the target of keeping the global temperature rise to less than 2 degrees Celsius this century is slipping out of reach.

"The drive to clean up the world's energy system has stalled," said Maria van der Hoeven, the IEA's executive director, at the launch of the agency's report on clean energy progress.

"Unless we get (carbon emissions) prices and policies right, a cost-effective clean-energy transition just will not happen," the report said.

Free healthcare for illegals continues the ObamaCare way

coachisright.com ^ | April 17, 2013 | Doug Book, staff writer

In 2009, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimated that the yearly cost of providing healthcare for illegal aliens was $10.7 billion. It was a difficult figure to approximate as hospitals are not permitted to ask if an emergency room patient is in the country illegally.
After all, should an exact total of monies spent even on the delivery of anchor babies (about $10,000 per “anchor”) become known, it would enrage an American public which Democrats especially hope to keep blissfully ignorant about one of the principle reasons for skyrocketing healthcare and health insurance prices—uncompensated costs.
In 1986, EMTALA was signed into law. Part of the COBRA act, EMTALA requires hospitals to provide treatment to anyone who needs it regardless of citizenship status or ability to pay. As the government does NOT reimburse hospitals for such care, a number of hospitals nationwide were forced to close their doors, being unable to provide millions of dollars in free services.
Though hospitals are able to recoup minimal portions of this massive expense via Medicaid reimbursement, the only way to remain solvent is by raising prices to paying patients. Naturally this drives up the cost of both healthcare and health insurance.
Enter Barack Obama and his namesake “healthcare” program. When arguing the constitutionality of ObamaCare before the Supreme Court, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli claimed that the individual mandate requiring everyone either purchase health insurance or pay a penalty was necessary in order to stop the practice of charging “…uncompensated costs … directly to other market participants…”
In short, the Regime was ostensibly outraged that responsibility for payment of these uncompensated costs was being placed on others by healthcare providers who routinely “…charge[d] higher rates in order to cover the cost of uncompensated care…”

ap via Boston.com ^ | 4/17/13 | By ADRIAN SAINZ

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Twenty-four current and former Internal Revenue Service employees have been charged with stealing government benefits, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.
The IRS employees were indicted on charges that they illegally received more than $250,000 in benefits including unemployment insurance payments, food stamps, welfare, and housing vouchers, the U.S. attorney’s office in Memphis said in a news release.
Prosecutors say 13 of the IRS employees face federal charges of lying about being unemployed while applying for or recertifying their government benefits. They each face up to five years in prison if convicted of making false statements to receive the benefits....

Top Dem sees 'train wreck' for Obama health law Co-author of Obama health care law sees huge mess!

Yahoo ^ | 4/17/13 | Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, Associated Press | Associated Press –

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A senior Democratic senator who helped write President Barack Obama's health care law stunned administration officials Wednesday, saying openly he thinks it's headed for a "train wreck" because of bumbling implementation.
"I just see a huge train wreck coming down," Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., told Obama's health care chief during a routine budget hearing that suddenly turned tense.
Baucus is the first top Democrat to publicly voice fears about the rollout of the new health care law, designed to bring coverage to some 30 million uninsured Americans through a mix of government programs and tax credits for private insurance that start next year. Polls show the public remains confused by the complexity of the law, and even many uninsured people are skeptical that they will be helped.
A six-term Democrat, Baucus expects to face a tough re-election in 2014. He's still trying to recover from approval ratings that nosedived amid displeasure with the health care law in his home state.
Normally low-key and supportive, Baucus challenged Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at Wednesday's hearing.

'I work for the Internal Revenue Service.'


Tax-Season Humor


A man walks into a store followed by his 10-y.o. son. The boy is spinning a quarter in the air and catching it between his teeth.

While walking through the store someone bumps into the boy and the coin goes straight into his mouth, lodging in his throat. He immediately starts choking and going blue in the face, so dad starts panicking and shouts and screams for help.

A middle aged, fairly unnoticeable man in a gray suit is sitting at the snack bar in the store reading his newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee. At the sound of the commotion, he looks up, puts his coffee down, neatly folds his newspaper and places it on the counter. He gets up from his seat and makes his unhurried way towards the boy.

When he reaches the boy, the man carefully takes hold of the boy’s testicles and squeezes, gently but firmly. After a few seconds the boy convulses violently and coughs up the quarter, which the man catches in his free hand.

Releasing the boy, the man hands the coin to the father and walks back to his seat at the snack bar without saying a word. As soon as the dad makes sure that his son is OK, he rushes over to the man and starts thanking him saying 'I’ve never seen anybody do anything like that before. It was fantastic!
Are you a doctor?'


'Oh, good Heavens, no' the man replies- 'I work for the
Internal Revenue Service.'
