Hillary’s Latest Two Whoppers

Let’s see – how about the one where a poor pregnant woman was denied care and both she and her baby died?

Sen. Hillary Clinton will stop telling an emotional story about a uninsured pregnant woman who died after being denied medical care, Clinton’s campaign said.

In the story, Clinton describes a woman from rural Ohio who was making minimum wage at a local pizza shop. The woman, who was uninsured, became pregnant.

Clinton said the woman ran into trouble and went to a hospital in a nearby county but was denied treatment because she couldn’t afford a $100 payment.

In her speeches, Clinton said the woman later was taken to the hospital by ambulance and lost the baby. The young woman was then taken by helicopter to a Columbus hospital where she died of complications.

Just one little problem with all that of course:

Hospital Chief Executive Officer Rick Castrop in a statement said, “we reviewed the medical and patient accounts of the patient” after she was named in a newspaper story about Clinton’s stump speech.

“There is no indication that she was ever denied medical care at any time, for any reason. We clearly reject any perception that we ever denied any care to this woman.”

A hospital spokesperson confirmed to CNN the woman had insurance. She said the hospital decided to come forward after people in the community began to question if they had denied her care.

Its always so horrible when people start checking up on these things. I really think the issue is that the Clintons could always get away with this before because the media would hide it for them. Now a) the media is for Obama and b) independent fact checkers can get their stories out via the web.

But the excuse given is “we got told this and didn’t have any reason to disbelieve it”.
Isn’t this what they accuse President Bush of doing with the Iraq War intelligence?

However, the real whopper of the weekend is this one:

Clinton told a convention of Democrats in North Dakota when her tax forms were made public: “Don’t get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against rich people. As a matter of fact my husband, much to my surprise and his, has made a lot of money since he left the White House by doing what he loves most – talking to people.”

Surprise? You and ex-President Pantsdown have been grubbing for every penny for years. I don’t care if you earned the money – I wish you had earned twice as much. It depresses me that there are enough idiots who will willingly pay you two to lie to them, but that’s another story. Just don’t tell us you are “surprised”.

Is Hillary Paying Her Health Insurance?

She is stiffing caterers, lighting companies, and all kinds of companies.  Are the health insurance bills for all her campaign workers being paid?  Inquiring minds what to know.  Especially since she is threatening to throw people in jail if they don’t buy health insurance from HER.

Of course, her health care is paid for by taxpayers.  If anything were to happen Walter Reed would open its loving arms and give her anything she wanted.  I wonder if her campaign staff would be forced to go to emergency rooms to wait?

Or maybe she’s just waiting to make this happen:

In an extensive interview on health policy on Wednesday, Clinton, a Democrat from New York, said she would like to cap health insurance premiums at 5 percent to 10 percent of income.

It would then be the responsibility of all her employees to fend for themselves, right Senator?

Easy Way to End the Democrat Primary Contest

I sure wish I could think of good things like these from Frank J:

Now, the most obvious solution is putting them in some sort of cage with weaponry where only one leaves. I don’t think this will work for the Democrats, though, because they won’t think Obama with his saccharine message of hopey change can stand up to the vicious Hillary who has long thirsted for his blood. Instead, they need to compete on a plane Democrats are more familiar with.

How about they are each given a billion dollars in tax money, and whoever spends it all the first wins. They can’t just spend it on military weaponry (and, being Democrats, they wouldn’t want to), and instead have to spend it all on wasteful, counterproductive social programs. That would prove which one of them is the most hardcore Democrat.

Also, they could get a group of foreigners and Obama and Hillary could compete on who could befriend the most. Having foreigners like us is of the utmost concern to Democrats.

Nutroots – Banning Clinton Supporters

And the fratricide intensifies between the kooks and the kookier:

Remember the progressive blogs?  RIP.

One by one, they’re starting to ban pro Hillary commenters.

You can curse.  You can spam.  You can make the vilest, most slanderous charges without proof.  

But, if you post favorable comments about Hillary?  anti Obama comments?  You’re out of there!

Quote of the Day- 23 Feb

From the wonderful House of Eratosthenes:

People want, as the Obamamaniacs tell us, “change.” I say, go for it. Fight terrorism with a universal healthcare plan. Go ahead and make it prohibitively and artificially expensive to hire new people to a business or, God forbid, start a new business. Give ALL the money and power to our trial lawyers. Take all our guns away and punish violent crime with a finger-waggling and wrist-slapping or two, if you punish it at all. Pay criminals money to not misbehave. Negotiate with tyrants around the world — no exceptions. Let me know how that works out.

I encourage you to read the whole article – a very well thought-out defense of conservatism in a time of McCain.  Does America need to be shown just how illogical, impractical, and self-defeating liberalism is every generation?

Do we need to just shut up and do what the Republican Party elders tell us to – regardless of whether it is good for the country or not?  Just because Obambi and the Hildebeast would be so much worse?

Its going to be an interesting 2008.

Sterilize Teenage Girls

Here’s an interesting proposition mooted from the UK:

Last week, an intriguing proposition was mooted by Government minister Dawn Primarolo.

Teenage girls, she said, could be steered towards what is described as “long-term contraception”.

This is now possible thanks to the development of contraceptive jabs and implants which can last up to five years.

In other words, there is a way of effectively sterilising girls for a lengthy period of time.

At what age? Well, doesn’t 12 until 17 sound rather sensible?

Its the underlying assumption that I find most despicable. Do you own your body? Or does the government? After all, the UK government “gives” you absolutely 100% free health care. (Just don’t look too closely at what you actually get). So if the government is responsible for your health care, does that mean it should be able to control your actions and bodily functions?

This is just an extension of the thought process that treatment for smokers and fat people and sick old people costs too much and should be curtailed. Why not keep these young sluts from having babies? Just look at the positive outcomes:

  • fewer abortions – theoretically
  • no welfare payments for those illegitimate rug rats
  • lots of time for these teenagers to practice sex without getting pregnant so they will be experienced, available, and willing
  • less maternity health costs paid for by the all-knowing and kind government

While this might be considered some sort of hypothetical trial balloon to demonstrate absurdity – do you really think that there aren’t some government planners who are actually planning for this action? Of course, no one would actually try and implement mass sterilization, would they?

But remember that doctors organizations and government bureaucrats now consider it safe to say that some people should not be treated because of the choices they have made in their life.  20 years ago, would the average citizen believe that this would be considered mainstream thought?  Its funny that all the liberal hysteria about loss of freedoms completely misses the fact that the biggest loss will be coming as the “gift” of government.

Remember that this free Obambi-care or Hillarycare will change the basic standing between government and citizens. Once you give responsibility for your health care to government, government will own you and your actions.

Just how much will YOU give Hillary?

Staffers going without pay, Obama projecting 30 million coming in for February. My prediction? Chinese money comes to her rescue.

Hillary? Broke?
Not exactly. But she’s strapped.
She was forced to admit today that she loaned her campaign $5 million last month.
What is the Clinton personal net worth? Nobody seems to know. Estimates are between $41 and $80 million. Bill is getting multi-million dollar payouts from companies like Yucaipa and InfoUSA. For doing what? Nobody knows. And the Clintons aren’t forced to disclose what he’s doing for all that dough.
The left-wing press has been all over Mitt Romney over how much of his own money he’s put into his campaign. I don’t see similar bellyaching over the Clinton contribution. Maybe the media thinks $5 mil is small potatoes. Or maybe it’s OK for the liberal Democrat to contribute from her fortune but not OK for the conservative Republican to contribute from his.
She is up against the wall: cash-poor, dead-even in delegates, and facing new contests in Maryland, DC, and Virginia that favor Obama. The hereditary monarch has been forced to wash the floors.

Update:

Of course, its the Clintons so the whole thing is a hoax.  She has money!  Bill has more money than God and he will give it all to her to be President.
