Get Your Grubby, Powerlusting Fingers Out of Our Economy!

My mother always used to warn me as a little girl - "Watch what you wish for, you just may get it." There was never a more true warning for those who would want the government managing our Health Care. As Thomas Sowell calls his column at Capitalism Magazine: "Disaster in the Making" the government cannot run anything without their propensity to ruin everything they touch... highways, bridges, dams, (all are crumbling) medicare, fact, come to think of it they already run part of this country's health care...medicare and medicaid...and they can't stay solvent there...Let's defeat this take over of 1/5 of our economy. Politicians keep your grubby, power lusting fingers our of our lives. Let freedom reign in America - Leave us alone.

After many a disappointment with someone, and especially after a disaster, we may be able to look back at numerous clues that should have warned us that the person we trusted did not deserve our trust.

When that person is the President of the United States, the potential for disaster is virtually unlimited.

Many people are rightly worried about what this administration's reckless spending will do to the economy in our time and to our children and grandchildren, to whom a staggering national debt will be passed on. But if the worst that Barack Obama does is ruin the economy, I will breathe a sigh of relief.

He is heading this country toward disaster on many fronts, including a nuclear Iran, which has every prospect of being an irretrievable disaster of almost unimaginable magnitude. We cannot put that genie back in the bottle-- and neither can generations yet unborn. They may yet curse us all for leaving them hostages to nuclear terror.

Conceivably, Israel can spare us that fate by taking out the Iranian nuclear facilities, instead of relying on Obama's ability to talk the Iranians out of going nuclear.

What the Israelis cannot spare us, however, are our own internal problems, of which the current flap over President Obama's injecting himself into a local police issue is just a small sign of a very big danger.Nothing has torn more countries apart from inside like racial and ethnic polarization. Just this year, a decades-long civil war, filled with unspeakable atrocities, has finally ended in Sri Lanka..(Read here at
