don't know how old you are and, of course, you don't know how old I am. I will grudgingly admit I'm in my sixth decade of life. I'm old enough to be one of those people you rolled your eyes at while growing up when we told you we walked about five miles to school each day—even during the winter, waist deep snow, in temperatures that dropped as low at -5 to -10 degrees in January and February. Only the kids who lived out in the farmlands in the county outside the city had the luxury of riding to school on school buses. Life in Norman Rockwell's America was much different then than life in the social progressive's version of America is now.

Today we live in the social progressive's politically-correct version of America where the name Jesus Christ is banned from public speech (unless it is used as a curse word), but every filthy word and deed devised in the perverted mind of man is protected speech under the 1st Amendment of the Constitution, just as the equally protected constitutional right to worship the God of our forefathers is banned as a form a racism against the abortionist, the pedophile, and the pornographer. If you want to reminisce about Norman Rockwell's America today you need to go to a flea market and search for old copies of the Saturday Evening Post. Or, for a photographic journey down memory lane, look for even older copies of Look or Life Magazine. In any of those pre-1960 magazines you will be shocked to see pictures of Americans actually worshipping God. Sadly, that America no longer exists because the ACLU was allowed by the federal courts to attack Christianity and sue churches for preaching what the lawyers deemed to be a racist gospel that condemns those who violate God's ordinances to a fiery Hell. And the people, like Nathan's band of idol worshippers at the base of Mt. Sinai, stood with outstretched hands begging for alms from the benevolent State, silently condoning the corruption of government, and willing to surrender the Constitution of the United States for a handful of crumbs from the master's table. It mattered little to them that evil politicians were determined to legalize abortion because they, themselves, were already born and not at risk. Nor did they fear euthanasia because they were still young and thought the party bosses would protect then when they aged. The bureaucrats told them there were too many people on Earth and by getting rid of the unborn and the elderly who are close to death anyway, there would be more of everything for those who were left. Added to that, the bureaucracy fought to legalize homosexual marriage because same sex partners don't procreate, and would do their part to create a more manageable world.

I was raised in the upper peninsula of Michigan, surrounded on three sides by Lake Michigan, Lake Superior and Lake Huron. Snow, during my childhood, was measured by the foot and temperatures were based on how fast your tongue stuck to a flagpole or a railroad track. I actually knew kids who had done both. About every 20 years or so Lake Superior, the largest fresh water lake in the world, would freeze over from shore to shore. In 2003 Lake Superior froze over. In 2009, it happened again—for the second time in 10 years. That was the first time in my recollections that Lake Superior froze completely over twice in the same decade. It must be global warming.

On July 21, 1983 Earth experienced its coldest day on record in the history of the planet. The weather facility at the Russian Vostok Station in Antarctica recorded the temperature that day at -89.2°C—or, for us Yankees, that's -129°F. The coldest day on record in Siberia was Feb. 6, 1922. The thermometer hit -67.8°C. Over the last few decades the average daytime temperature in Siberia averaged -23°C with nighttime temperatures averaging about -50°C. Does that sound like global warming to you? As the world's largest fresh water lake continues to freeze from shoreline to shoreline, the ecoalarmists who would have us believe that man-induced global warming will continue to warm the world and that if current trends continue, they said, Lake Superior will be completely ice free by 2040. Currently, winter temperatures in the Himalayan mountains where India, Tibet and China meet hit record lows of -68F to -90F during the past decade. None of this sounds like global warming, with unsupported claims that ice caps are melting and the sea level rising to dangerous levels. It doesn't, because it isn't. The ecoalarmists are citing data from "models" they created with flawed data. The data is flawed because the ecoalarmist begins his thesis with a preconceived conclusion, then shapes the data to make it fit what they think will happen. Data that disputes the perceived conclusion is not only ignored, it's literally destroyed. Always missing from the database is the sun, which both heats and cools not only this planet, but all of the inner planets in our solar system.

When Al Gore , Jr. became a divinity student at Vanderbilt in 1971 he also became a protege of global warming advocate and Vanderbilt theology professor Eugene TeSelle. TeSelle was a disciple of the Earth goddess Gaia whose disciples believe Gaia is the planetary brain of this world. Her followers have about the same type of spiritual relation with her that Christian believers have with God through His Son, Christ Jesus. TeSelle, a hard left pro-Sandinista communist whose chair at the Vanderbilt School of Divinity was funded by David Rockefeller, remained Gore's environmentalist mentor until then Sen. Al Gore sided with President Ronald Reagan to provide humanitarian aid to the Contras in Nicaragua. TeSelle, like Rockefeller knew world government could not be achieved until the American people were forced to go to sleep every night with the same fears that gnawed at the stomachs of the nations of Europe who feared they would awaken in the morning to find their nation had been invaded while they slept.

Most Americans view Gore as the father of global warming for two reasons. First, because of his pseudo-factual sci-fi saga, An Inconvenient Truth which uses fabricated scientific data to suggest that carbon dioxide is the cause of global warming when, in fact, carbon dioxide is the element that manufacturers both the air we breathe and the water we drink. Curtail carbon dioxide and the horrors the ecoalarmists promise us that carbon dioxide would cause what will happen in a world devoid of carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is the food that plants consume. The byproduct the plant secretes is oxygen. Oxygen combined with hydrogen creates the water we drink and the air we breathe. And since the far left ecoidiots convinced the US Supreme Court that carbon dioxide is a harmful chemical that must be regulated, it doesn't take a Capitol Hill genius with an IQ much bigger than his waist size to realize that ultimately the whole world is going experience starvation, drought and a lack of breathable air. Which, of course, they will blame on—you guessed it—global warming and carbon dioxide.

Second, Gore and former US Senator and Clinton Administration Undersecretary of State for Global Warming (now Climate Change) Timothy Wirth were the authors of the Kyoto Protocol that will cripple the United States economically by imposing draconian environmental regulations on America that will have all but banned the use of fossil fuels to fire the engines of industry by imposing massive fines on those industries which exceed their carbon emission quotas. Those fines will ultimately be paid by the consumers who used the energy or bought the commodities produced with what the Utopians view as 19th century energy. The globalists, with Barack Obama pushing to implement the Kyoto Protocol at Copenhagen in December, were disappointed that they could not resolve the issue and walk away from Copenhagen with a signed treaty. However Obama doesn't appear to be smart enough to realize that in the mind of the European and Asian Utopians all carbon reparations are going to be paid by the United States since working class Americans—Black, White Hispanic or Oriental—are the rich people Obama's redistribution-of-the-wealth plan is targeting. The impoverished people Obama campaigned for when he spoke of redistributing the wealth of America were not the poor minorities in Montgomery, Alabama or Detroit, Michigan. The impoverished people are the jobless consumers of tomorrow in China, Indonesia, India, Brazil, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

As the greed gurus of radical environmentalism, who expect to become billionaires from buying and selling "carbon credits," headed off to the Global Warming Summit that was held in Copenhagen, Denmark from Dec. 6-18, 2009 suddenly found their "climate credibility" attacked by a large majority of the world's climate scientists who were suddenly paying attention to climate change once the financial agenda of the ecoalarmists became clear—including many of the climate scientists whose names were cited in the ecoalarmist literature as advocates of global warming. Not only did the legitimate scientific community denounce the hypothesis of the radical ecoalarmists, they challenged their claims with reams of documentation to scientifically dispute the unsubstantiated claims of the ecoalarmists who insist, because they will it, the debate is settled and it's too late to dispute their "facts." Global warming, they insisted, was a fact. Only it isn't. Since the mid-1990s, the world had been in a cooling phase.

On Aug. 19, 2009, Don Easterbrook, a geologist at Western Washington University in Bellingham gave a speech in which he said we have just entered a 30-year cooling phase. Addressing the American Geophysical Union's annual meeting in August, Easterbrook said that "...the most recent global warming that began in 1977 is over. The Earth has entered a new phase of global cooling." The evidence, compiled by hundreds of climate scientists, agree with Easterbrook's view. Further evidence in the form of email communique, refuted by Obama Administration Climate Czar (and former Clinton EPA Director) Carol Browner rejected claims by scores of reporters who have read and copied the emails that were hacked from the Climate Research Unit of the University of East Anglia where global warming advocates at the university admitted they had altered climate data which did not back up their claims of global warming. Furthermore, among the hacked data were several strategies on how to freeze out, or discredit, scientists who disagreed with the climate scientists funded by environmental groups or big oil which has a vested interest in curbing what they believe is a nonreplenishable commodity that is rapidly running out.

When the emails surfaced, Sen. James Inhofe [R-OK] demanded an investigation saying the emails confirmed his long-held view that the climate claims of Al Gore and others were not supported by any factual scientific climate data—particularly since all of the real climate data indicates that the planet has been cooling since 1977. (Of course, since the GOP is minor-minority in both Houses that they don't even have the clout to demand a roll call to see who is presently in the chamber, Inhofe's demand was merely a meaningless Congressinal Record entry with no power to compel anyone to do anything.)

The evidence of climate cooling has become so conclusive that even before the Copenhagen Global Warming Conference convened, the name was strategically changed from the Copenhagen Global Warming Summit to the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit. I guess when you want to sell carbon credits, global cooling can be as carbon dioxide-intensive as global warming. And carbon dioxide has to be the cause and the United States has to be the villain for the largest and most devastating transfer of wealth in the history of mankind to take place. The reason? The barons of business and princes of industry, the World Trade Organization and the World Bank, which redefined the nature of wealth in 1995 during the Clinton years in terms of human capital rather than financial capital, are creating tomorrow's consumers—the overpopulated have-nots of the third world who have nothing and need everything—especially jobs and discretionary income with which to purchase the commodities rolling off the newly created factory assembly lines in their countries.

Changing the term "global warming" to "climate change" was a wise diversion on the part of the greedmongers who were now scrambling to find a plausible explanation how the carbon dioxide atrium affect of global warming was now triggering the coldest temperatures in over 500 years. The climate scientists who have been stifled by the media and by the universities and foundations that finance all of the climate research have finally found their voices. And, those voices are now being heard loudly and clearly over the Goreite shouts that the debate is over.

Prior to 1492 all of the world's brightest scientists insisted if a ship sailed beyond the horizon, it would fall off the edge of Earth. When Christopher Columbus didn't fall off the edge of the world, the scientists insisted he simply hadn't sailed far enough to fall off. Polish astronomer Niklas Koppernigk (known to the world as Copernicus) proved that man's known universe was not geocentric (Earth-centered) but was, in fact, heliocentric (sun-centered). Copernicus' peers did not hail his discovery as an advancement of scientific knowledge. They not only ridiculed him, the scientists of the day appealed to the Pope to condemn Copernicus for heresy. Faced with a choice of recanting his theory or facing excommunication and being burned at the stake, Copernicus publicly withdrew his scientific finding and apologized to the Church for his heresy. Keep in mind in these instances, it was not Columbus or Copernicus who were wrong. The "establishment" scientific community was wrong not because their research suggested, by a preponderance of the evidence, that they were right, but because as far as the establishment was concerned, without their examining any real scientific evidence, the debate was settled. They simply refused to consider anything that would force them debate the merits of their point of view.

Scientists today insist that man is a product of evolution. There are thousands of textbooks written on the subject. Yet, with the millions of written words explaining how this species evolved from that one, there has never been a single transitional fossil found that shows a mutation from one species to another. The "scientific theories" on evolution, like Gore's climate fallacies, begin with a conclusion rather than a premise. The laws governing the establishment of scientific proof have never been applied to the theory of evolution, nor to the theory of man-induced global warming. As shocking as this may seem, evolution requires a much greater leap of faith than creationism. Think about it. The idea that nature (which is completely inanimate) could, and would, selectively isolate specific plants and animals and set them on an evolutionary spiral to advance life suggests that nature (Gaia) has both an intelligence and a master plan. Like the ecoalarmist who created the global warming models, the evolutionist constructed an imaginary phylogenetic model to support an evolutionary linkage between the various life forms. Yet, with the existence of over 500 million prehistoric fossil records which can be physically examined, there is not a single fossil that supports the factless supposition that any species evolved into some other species.

Evolutionary "science" and climate "science" were fictitiously manufactured by wealthy foundations with a utopian, global agenda. Christians believed that all basic humans rights are God-given, thus they are inherent. If God is a myth, then the inherency of human rights are also a myth. Climate science textbooks, written by the Ph.D's who are funded by the foundations of the barons of business, the princes of industry and the masters of the New World Order, like the books dealing with evolutionary science, begin with a conclusions based on fabricated premises. Anyone who believes that flatulating cows, sweaty old men with irritable bowel syndrome who inhabit a world with too many people, young and old, are the primary cause of global warming deserve the fate that is in store for them. The rest of us, who clearly understand that we are being illegally manipulated by crooked politicians who are being legally bribed by greedy thieves and liars, don't.

When we sufficiently reduce carbon dioxide, the world's deserts will double or triple in size, rainfall will cease, the abundance of food growing in the world's farms will experience the dust bowls of the 1930s, and mass starvation will begin. When that happens, the ecoalarmists will jump on their soap boxes and shout they warned us this was coming, but we didn't listen. And the carbon taxes will increase to get rid of even more of that nasty carbon dioxide. And of course, then, the rest of us will die—and Earth will join the rest of the dead planets in their silent journey around the sun in our solar system.

Anyone with a rudimentary understanding of the orbital mechanics of the solar system knows that planetary heating and cooling of the inner planets, particularly Venus, Earth and Mars, are caused by solar eruptions that cyclically increase and decrease the temperatures of the inner planets in our solar system. Advocates of global warming who insist that flatulating cows and sweaty fat old men with irritable bowel syndrome raise the ground temperature on Earth, deliberately ignores the fact that flatulating cows and sweaty fat old men with irritable bowel syndrome don't exist on Mars or Venus—which means the claims that humans cause global warming is just so much bovine excrement from flatulating cows. In point of fact, the ecoalarmists who claim that mankind is responsible for 99% of global warming simply ignore the fact that Venus and Mars both experience the same heating and cooling cycles experienced by Earth. All of the temperature fluctuations in the solar system are caused by solar cycles that vary from 11 to 231 years in duration.

There's a sinister reason for claiming that carbon dioxide is the culprit behind global warming. David Rockefeller, the patriarch of the Seven Sister's oil clan, like old John D., Sr. is convinced that oil is a fossil fuel (which means since there are no more dinosaurs and prehistoric fauna to decay), that we are running out of oil. Thus, raising the price of crude oil to force people use less of a commodity they need but increasingly can't afford is smart business. Standard Oil has been doing that in small degrees since 1870, and in a major way since the formation of OPEC in the 1970s. From 1950 to 1960 oil remained static at roughly $2 barrel. Five nations (Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Venezuela) formed OPEC in 1961. The price of oil rose to $3 barrel. With the help of environmentalists and the far left Congress beginning in 1977, the Seven Sisters began closing both oil wells and refineries in the United States. US oil companies bought every oil lease available on Alaska's North Slope but did not develop any of them. Planned shortages were on the way. Oil rose to $30 barrel. While the Seven Sisters own half of all of the oil pumped from all of the active wells in all of the OPEC countries except Venezuela and Iran, which simply nationalized the US oil interests, the Standard Oil Seven Sisters under its Exxon flagship, not only owns 50% of all of the oil pumped from the under the sands of the Saudi Peninsula, it also owns a large percentage of the oil being pumped in Siberia in a partnership deal with Russian Lukoil. Exxon is now also refining the oil from Kazakhstan's Baku oil fields which John D. Rockefeller could not get from Tsar Nicholas II in 1880. The oil strike near the Caspian Sea, which was controlled by Baron Alphonse Rothschild and the Swedish munitions maker Alfred Nobel was the largest oil strike in the world at that time. The estimated oil reserves in the Baku Oil Field dwarfed the combined reserves of Standard Oil in the United States. (That would change when oil was struck in Texas and Oklahoma—and. today, with the latest oil discoveries of a massive pool of oil locked in shale under Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. Geologists estimate the extractable oil in that site is three times the total oil available under the Saudi Peninsula.) In 1880, Rockefeller was convinced that oil existed only in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kazakhstan, Sumatra and Java.

Today, we know oil is a global commodity with the largest oil find to date discovered in a joint IPO by Exxon and China Oil in the Pacific Ocean, stretching from the Hawaiian Archipelago to the Mariana Archipelago. This is the most important oil strike since crude oil was first discovered at Oil Creek, Pennsylvania in 1862 and in the Baku Oil Fields in Russia in 1873—and it dwarfs all of the oil found in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge [ANWR] Alaska and the recent discovery of oil in the western United States. The problem with the rising price of crude and gasoline has nothing to do with shortage of oil. It never did. It has always been due to the belief of the Rockefellers that oil is decayed dinosaur carcasses and decayed prehistoric fauna. Not even finding more oil under the oceans of the world than they have found on land has discouraged that thinking.

It's this twisted utopian Rockefeller thinking that influenced the far left conviction that there are too many people on the planet. Eventually, David Rockefeller, who funded the distribution of the 1968 Paul Ehrlich book, The Population Bomb, that expounded the erroneous views of an essay written by 18th century botonist Thomas Robert Malthus in 1798. Malthus, living in a world which had no knowledge of 20th century architecture or agriculture, was convinced that as the population grew, it would simply spread out—building single family dwellings across the landscape—devouring all of the farmland as the population grew. Malthus estimated that by the year 2000. Without adequate farmland, there would be not be enough food in the world to maintain even a fraction of the population that would exist by that time, and what population that survived the wars fought for what food was left would ultimately die of starvation. David Rockefeller made sure that Ehrlich's book was placed in every secondary school, college and university in the country. Malthus wrote his essay two decades before the industrial revolution and a century before the development of chemical fertilizers which increased crop yield...and with enough population growth to increase God's natural plant food—carbon dioxide—that spread forestation, increased rainfall and made a richer atmosphere for all living creatures to breathe Malthus was convinced these hordes of unwanted people would die from mass starvation. Thus, Utopians and other ecoalarmists who believe that Ehlrich wrote a factually researched book instead of merely plagiarizing Malthus' flawed 18th century data, are doing mankind a favor by aborting the unborn at the onset of the chain of life and euthanizing the old who today drain the resources needed by the rest of us to survive. Malthus had an excuse for his flawed logic. He couldn't see the future. Ehlrich has no excuse since he lived in the future Malthus could not see.

And David Rockefeller, the wealthiest man in the world, had even less of an excuse for his participation not only in the propagation of Ehlrich's fiction, but also in his successful effort to finance the public relations campaign that ultimately resulted in the legalizing of the killing of the unborn in the United States. That effort resulted in the withholding of birth from what now appears to be over 69 million babies in the United States (49 million victims of abortion, and 20 million babies not born because one or both of their theoretical parents were victims of abortion). In 1995 the developed nations performed 25.6 million legal and 19.9 million illegal abortions. (This is an abortion rate of 35 per thousand women aged 15 to 44.) Asia (excluding China), performed 26.8 million abortions. There are no abortion statistics for China. Catholic Latin America performed 4.3 million abortions. If the rate of abortion for 1995 was relatively constant over the three decades since abortion was legalized in the United States, then the world may well have closed its eyes to the murder of three billion one hundred sixty-six million, six hundred thousand unborn babies worldwide since 1973. They would be the babies which the Gaia crowd thought had no financial value to mankind since they would simply grow up and consume too much of nature's rapidly dwindling commodities. (The 69 million missing babies in the United States are the reason Social Security is bankrupt, and why Medicare is bankrupt. The pro-abortion social progressives who view population as a plague on their pristine planet failed to realize that as society ages, an aging work force needs to be not only replaced with a younger work force, but more important, it needs to be replaced with a larger work force than that which is retiring.

Again, we can thank David Rockefeller, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Foundation, the Carnegie Trust, the Ford Foundation, the Scaife Foundation, and the Pew Trust for the the people shortfall since they led the funding to legalize abortion. Shortsightedly, the constructionalists of Utopia failed to realize that the shortfall of workers would also produced a shortfall of taxpayers. Today we have an untenable imbalance between the number of people either in the work force or who are willing and able to work, and those who have paid into the Social Security system for 40 to 50 years and are entitled to both a pension and for medical care for which they've paid the "premiums" throughout their entire adult life. The Democrats in 1964-65 stole the Social Security Trust Fund which was supposed to invested in high yield bonds. They replaced the money they stole with IOUs at 2% interest, draining the Social Security Trust to finance the generational Welfare State. No interest has ever been paid on the money they stole.

What part of the Social Security OASI Trust Fund that Lyndon Johnson didn't squander on the generational welfare recipients of his Great Society, Ronald Reagan saved by cutting a deal with Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan [D-NY] , House Speaker Tip O'Neill [D-MA] and economist Alan Greenspan (who ultimately replaced liberal Fed Chairman Paul Volcker (now an adviser to Obama). Reagan, with the help of Moynihan and O'Neill created the National Commission on Social Security Reform. Reagan tasked Greenspan with the impossible chore of creating a plan to keep Social Security solvent for at least 75 years. Greenspan told Congress they would have to triple the OASI tax to generate enough of a cash reserve that, with interest, would keep Social Security solvent until 2060. Reagan signed the legislation into law. Included in Public Law 101-508, Title XIII, Sec. 13301[a] was a stipulation that "...notwithstanding any other provision of law, the receipts and disbursement of the Federal Old-Age Survivors Insurance Trust and Federal Disability Insurance Trust Fund and shall not be counted as new budget authority, outlays, receipts, or deficit or surplus for purposes—(1) the budget of the United States Government as submitted by the President, (2) the congressional budget, or (3) the Balanced Budget and Emeregency Deficit Control Act of 1895." Under that law, all OASI surpluses were required to be invested in high yield government securities to guarantee the growth of the fund. All OASI funds were immune from the greedy fingers of federal politicians who never saw a dollar they could not spend before the ink on the greenback was dry enough to pocket.

One of the most talked about fables in Washington, DC was that co-presidents Bill and Hillary Clinton, with the help of Clinton's financial guru, former Goldman Sachs co-chairman, and Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin balanced the budget, paid off a chunk of the national debt, and created a cash surplus that President George W. Bush squandered to wage a personal vendetta against Saddam Hussein for trying to assassinate his daddy. You've heard lots of Washington Cinderella stories. Well, this is the Pinnochio story. Rubin was hailed as the most brillant financial genius in Washington. who was theoretically able to pay off a large chunk of the nation debt with tax dollars even as the United States was experiencing an exodus of US factories as over 15 million US tax-generating jobs were leaving the United States via the swinging door in Brownsville, Texas. Yet, with unemployment rising, tax revenue plummeting, Rubin was able to manage what little tax revnue remained so well that not only was he able to balance the budget, but create a surplus as well.

As is usually the case in Washington, DC, someone ultimately revealed the financial sleight-of-hand Rubin used to balance the budget. Rubin, it seems, simply wrote out a new IOU and "borrowed" $667 billion from the Social Secuirity OASI Trust Fund to balance the budget. No genius. No magic. Just a typical inside-the-beltway political sleight-of-hand. When several newspapers friendly to Clinton admitted in 2006 that the sleight-of-hand had actually taken place, they minimized its significance by noting that President Reagain and/or George H.W. Bush {depending on who was telling the story) also "borrowed" $100 billion from the OASI Trust Fund during his/their administration. (Since Reagan did not believe any government agency or President had the authority to touch the Trust Fund, the story lacks credibility.) The Clinton Administration claimed the Trust Fund was solvent and contained some $2.4 trillion. Rubin emptied the OASI coffers. All that was left in the Trust Fund were worthless IOUs which Congress promised to repay.

There's the problem. Congress' promissary notes are worthless because the Fed has run out of buyers for its debt and it lacks lacks the money to repay the OASI funds it appropriated since 1965. Social security recipients are paid with current Social Security receipts. Based on the Clinton-Rubin transferring the OASI funds to the general treasury, "D" day—deficit day—arrives in 2017. Unless Uncle Sam finds from 45 to 60 million new middle class taxpayers overnight to fill the deficit when the balance of the Baby Boomers retire, FICA taxes on all US citizens—including current Social Security recipients—will quadruple.

The problem, as the Rockefellerites have insisted for years, is that there are too many people in the world. They envisiion a more pristine, idyllic world with no more than 500 million people. However, the planned reduction of the population over the years through abortion created a demographic imbalance that the richest men in the world failed to foresee—an imbalance that would upset the economic equillibrium of the industrialized nations. The slaughter of 49,589,993 innocent babies combined with 20 million children they will never have in this country created a population shortfall of approximately 69 million taxpayers who are now direly needed to replace the 59.7 million Baby Boomers— who will be retired by 2017 and receving government benefits rather than paying taxes.

A couple days before the Senatorial Christmas break, the far left progressives allied with moderate Democrats whose votes were purchased, won a bribery-corrupted, nasty vote-buying "winterfest" gift that allowed White House occupant Barack Hussein Obama to declare an Obamacare victory, and make what could be construed as a New Year's Resolution to keep Social Secuirty and Medicare from going bankrupt for at least the next decade {which, of course is 50 years short of the guarantee Reagan got from Moynihan, O'Neill and Greenspan in 1983). Obama did not win one additional day over the Clinton-Rubin "D-Day" timeline. But Obama won something Clinton could not ge through Congress. Obama won the right to kill the unwanted at both ends of the age corridor.

Obama's victory claims, of course, were designed to bring the elderly voters back into the Democratic fold in November so they can vote for the Democrats who, in HR-1, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, legislated into existence the regulatory team that will oversee the euthanasia of America's double-dippers. (Double dippers are seniors who receive Social Security benefits and are Medicare recipients, too. Euthanizing them is like getting two birds with one stone.)

The rationing of healthcare to the elderly and to those with catastrophic or terminal illnesses for which recovery is unlikely (such as old age), takes place in every nation which provides some form of universal healthcare such as: Afghanistan, Argentina, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Cuba, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany [the first nation in the world to provide universal healthcare], Greece, Iraq, Icxeland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Oman, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom will also take place here—even without Obama's public option in HR 3590, the House and Senate-passed Patient Protection and Affordable Caare Act [PPACA] since the healthcare legislation, when merged with the House version, will reduce the age at which Americans will be obligated to participate in Medicare to age 55. While that option is voluntary today, and while the legislation will be signed into law without Obama's public option, it is important for people to understand that once legislation becomes law, they can be amended two ways. First, by writing regulations which circumvent the original intent of the law, and second, by innocuously amending specific words within specific phases without ever mentioning, by name, the law being amending, or the full text of the section, subsection, or clause being changed.

Unless you know the specific language of whatever section, subsection or clause when you read the legalese in the bill, you won't have the slightest idea what is being changed. For example, in Sec. 3 of HR 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, there appears to an extension on the first time home buyer credit for certain people working outisde the United States. Changes in the Internal Revenue Code that theoretically allow this credit appear in HR 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Caare Act. No mention is made of the original law where this authority was granted, or what changes will occur when HR 3590 becomes law. (The law being amended is the Corporate Estimated Tax Shift Act of 2009). The exclusion from Gross Income of Qualified Military Personnel under Sec.4(a) in its entirety, says: "In general, Subsection (n) of section 132 of the Internal Revenue Code of 19876 is amended—(1) in subparagraph (1) by striking "this subscection) to offset the advrse effects on housing values as a result of a military base realignment or closure" and inserting "the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and (2) in subparagraph (2) by striking "clause (1) of". (b) Effective Date—The amendments made by this act shall apply to payments made after Feb. 17, 2009." Don't you feel relieved to know that change was finally made?

But even more, don't you wish that when people announced their New Years' Resolution the only thing that came out of their mouths was that they pledged to take off 25 lbs, or that you were determined to quit smoking, or get a better job, invent a better mouse trap...or simply be a better person and contribute more to your home, your family, your neighborhood or your nation. I'd much rather Obama's New Year's Resolution was that he was going to clear the air about his citizenship status, and that he resolved to produce his real birth certificate.
