Sen. Kerry's 911 response...

Kerry craaaaaves approval, but ONLY from those he considers important. We need only look at his plan for the response to slaughtered citizens by the greatest power on earth- truly a 911 plan-

"I'll get help!"

Or discussed more elegantly-

"And although we cannot run an experiment to look into the alternate futures to glean the best result, to determine the relative benefits of being nice or being mean – for those, ultimately, are the choices, believe it or not – we can at least look back to see which seems to have produced the best results in the laboratory of history.

It all comes down to carrots (liberals) or sticks (conservatives)...

You can offer a carrot. Not everybody likes carrots. Some people may hate your carrot. Your carrot may offend people who worship the rutabaga.

But no one likes being poked in the eye with a stick. "

Where are the sick people?

Listening to all the health care complaining, I'm confused by the absence of sick people.

Maybe I'm lucky, but I don't see lines of people seeking treatment snaking around the hospital I pass each day.

Nor are the streets filled with the collapsed. No dead carts making the rounds, either. My co workers seem to show up regularly enough that I don't notice many absences.

When people have heart attacks they get bypasses immediately, and I've never heard of an 18 week wait for a hip replacement, which takes 18 MONTHS in England.

So where are the sick people?

A wager for Senator Kerry...

I'd like a new car, so here's a bet for him, or anyone who whinges about "poverty in America".

Let's go to any place in this country where tax money is dispensed to the poor- food stamp office, housing project, or welfare office. We'll take a scale and a table of normal body weight.

For every applicant or recipient present who is under normal weight, I'll give him a thousand dollars.

For every one over weight, he gives me a thousand.

For every applicant or recipient present without a cellular telephone, I'll pay the same thousand. Every one with a cell, a thousand to me.

One proviso- the only applicants or recipients who count are those born to U. S. citizens.

Just for enlightenment, try going to one of those places yourself and doing a count of the portly cell carriers by eye. Your money at work.

Debate a'comin'...

Here's my dare for the President-

"You think that the "richest Americans" should pay more taxes. Why don't you, and Mrs. Kerrey, and Michael Moore, and George Soros, and Senator Boxer, pay extra? All of you have 8 figure incomes. The government will take your gifts, I guarantee it.

But no- you each employ lawyers and accountants to make sure you avoid paying an extra nickel.

Liberals- rich liberals like you and Barbra Streisand- believe that the government is the best judge of how to spend other people's money, but not your own."

Naaah- too honest.
