The zero tax rate is a winner. Gates has friends who believe him. Ben Stein vs. Clement Attlee. Plus more.

Okay, folks. The joke is over. We get it. We’ve all had a good laugh. Now, would you please, PLEASE dump Graham when he comes up for re-election? He’s turning out to be nothing more than another copy of the two girls from Maine.
The country can’t take any more of this. Only you can spare the
rest of us from this fool.

If Fox News puts this charlatan on as a representative of Republicans and conservatives one more time, I’m going to kill my TV set.
Then I’m going to dispatch a very nasty e-mail to Roger Ailes.
Lindsey Graham needs to be removed … … . NOW!

Re: Ben Stein’s We’ve Figured Him Out:
All I can say is thank God for Ben Stein. Maybe he should run for
president. He is trying to open the gate of knowledge for those
who voted for Obama and now see the beginning of what could be
the end. Mr. Stein is a man that stands up for the people and is
not afraid of speaking the truth — the truth that the American
people are now privy to. What a shame, we, myself not included,
voted for a president that has never shown any proof of
credentials. Wake up America!!! Mr. Stein, I commend you for the
courage to speak out. My prayers are with you and also with this

I am a great admirer of Ben Stein and concur in his projections. I am a U.K. medical graduate (1949) and experienced first hand the lies and deceit in promises made by the Labour Government under Clement Attlee and the Min. of Health Aneurin Bevan.
One statement in particular remains in my memory spoken by Bevan at a meeting in 1948 before the passage of the National Health Bill i.e., “this Bill will ensure that no one will fall below this net” — as experience showed “this became a ceiling above which no one could rise.”
The ultimate event was the establishment of a private insurance program with private care facilities to counter the unacceptable delays and missed opportunities to get early care I know from personal family experience with a Mother whose early Cancer of the Gall Bladder is on display at the Royal College of Surgeons museum in London as the “First totally encapsulated Carcinoma recorded since the onset of NHI some 30 years before.”
God help us in theavoidance of this type calamity in our

Re: Jeffrey Lord’s Who Will Tell Michael J. Fox He Needs To Die?:
To my mind, there are two immediate and relatively inexpensive (compared to Obamacare) solutions to the health care fiasco.
First and most obvious is tort reform. Case in point: John
Edwards became a multimillionaire by
pressing frivolous law suits against health care professionals and their insurance companies.
Since he was relatively easy to look at, he was able to convince a multitude of juries to help make
him rich. Remember, the lion’s share of jury awards in such suits goes to the lawyers, not the “aggrieved” plaintiffs; hence the term ambulance chaser.
Secondly, years ago, most communities had hospitals run by some
level of government. These
hospitals provided free clinics where the poor and indigent could get reasonable basic health care, usually without long waits, at minimal cost to the patient. Some of these clinics even provided dental care! When the hospitals were privatized and became profit centers, prices soared and reasonably priced health care in the form of clinics disappeared.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
