GETTING WAXED IN THE POLLS
Re: Larry Thornberry’s Crist Implodes:
Wow. A liberal pollster tells us Marco Rubio is waxing Charlie Crist — can the news get any better? This November it will be exciting when Marco Rubio joins the Republican Senate majority to fight and destroy Obama’s radical Democrat agenda.
For those who still don’t get it, the GOP is the conservative
party in the US. As for RINO’s being an endangered species that
will only be proven when the King of Pork, the “Wild Shrimp
Cowboy” and CPAC straw poll winner Ron Paul goes the way of Harry
Reid and the radical Obama agenda.

BIG DEAL CROOKS
Re: William Yeatman and Jeremy Lott’s You Stay Classy, Sacramento:
“… California regulators allow utilities to increase electricity rates to fund programs that lower energy consumption. If these programs reduce energy use below targets set by the state, then the utilities get to keep some of the value of the saved electricity.”
And I thought the crooks from Enron were all dead or
incarcerated. Call the cops and have them put out an APB on Paul

Re: Jonathan Aitken’s Forgiveness in Hollywood:
Please thank Mr. Aitken!
Lovely essay: in South Africa we seldom see outsiders comprehend much about truth here in our little country at bottom end of Africa.
Thanks. I am sending this piece to all my friends.
Note: Mr. Clint Eastwood and Freeman are both gentlemen and
perceptive artists: everyone who met them here during filming
agreed and loved them.

THE FREE RIDERS
Re: William Tucker’s Bending the Cost Curve — With a Crowbar:
One of the real dilemmas in bending the cost curve is the public clamor for doing away with pre-existing conditions limitations. Where this has been done, premiums shoot skyward as a result of the free rider problem: waiting to buy insurance until you are actually sick.
There is a reasonably simple way to mitigate this free rider problem. In the case of continuous coverage (no gap in coverage), regardless of insurer, there is to be no pre-existing condition provision. The insured has continuously been in the insurance pool, and is not a free rider. If there has been a gap in coverage, there is to be a one year pre-existing condition provision, so any free rider will have to wait a year until he can obtain coverage for his condition. When moving from a high deductible policy to a lower deductible policy, the high deductible will apply for one year on the replacement coverage for a pre-existing condition.
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?
