Here are, in my view, interesting, noteworthy columns and articles from the past week that I highly recommend (You will note that on occasion, I do not endorse the opinions of the author and may point that out. Despite my disagreements, I still feel the piece is worth a read).

Doyle's new friend Rosy

"Doyle thinks in one year we’re going to be all the way back to the 5% growth that he sneered at McCallum for predicting.  Doyle ripped McCallum for his forecast saying tax receipts are going to grow 5% in a mild recession, and now Doyle has them growing 4.5% in a disastrous recession.

It gets even better."

The Obamacare horror story you won't hear

"The White House, Democrats, and MoveOn liberals are spreading health care sob stories to sell a government takeover. But there’s one health care policy nightmare you won’t hear the Obamas hyping. It’s a tale of poor, minority patient-dumping in Chicago — with First Lady Michelle Obama’s fingerprints all over it."

Schizophrenic America

"One thing I’ve always agreed with was the title of Michael Savage’s book 'Liberalism is a Mental Disorder,' as it seemed to be such an obvious explanation for why the left is so devoid of logic.  And perhaps it’s also an explanation for the results of the latest polls on Obama, the economy, deficits, etc.  I can think of no other excuse than mass public schizophrenia."

The fly in the ointment

"Obama is finding out that honeymoons, like house flies, don't last forever."

Why Obama scares me, too

"You promise to defend the U.S. against all potential enemies, yet you pacify those who harbor terrorists, fight for the rights of combative detainees, and enable the enemies of Israel."

Some psychos can't be reached

"As someone who believes in giving kooks enough rope to hang themselves, the right course of action would be to sever all communications with rogue, whacky regimes until they prove to the world they no longer have rabies. In the meantime, America should walk loudly, proudly, and carry an oil-soaked 2x4 wrapped with rusty barbed wire and always be ready to swat international kooks upside the head."

Are 46 million in America without health insurance? Yes and no.

"There is a difference between health care and health insurance
.   Everyone has access to health care.   They may not have health insurance, but the law mandates everyone who shows up at emergency rooms must be treated, insurance or not."

The recession is great

"This recession might be a good thing. Job losses and property devaluations have inflicted much pain, but relentless focus on catastrophe leaves out the flip side of market logic..."

How to save $5000 fast

"Looking to raise some money fast?"

LA County officials offer a novel idea to save millions

"With steep state budget cuts under debate in Sacramento, Los Angeles County supervisors voted Tuesday to push for changes to CalWorks and other government aid programs they said would save nearly $270 million. Included in their suggestions is a novel proposal: Put unemployed parents to work caring for their own children."

The last laugh

"In the media world in which David Letterman lives, many people are outspokenly liberal. New York City and Hollywood are unabashedly left. But the folks are not. And they do not want nasty stuff directed at a working mother like Mrs. Palin who holds traditional values. To hear the liberal pundits try to defend Letterman was something out of the Twilight Zone."

Seven things Sarah Palin must do right now

"Someone has to run against him (Obama) in 2012. .. That someone could be Sarah Palin, if she does seven things right now."

A literary legend fights for a local library

“I don’t believe in colleges and universities. I believe in libraries because most students don’t have any money. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money. I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.”
