The Ruining of a Nation

I just watched the last episode I'll ever watch of the CBS show NCIS. This was one of my favorites, but like many other network shows, blatant social education seems to be the order of the day. I watched my last episode of the Closer the other night. Again, one of my favorites and one of maybe four shows I still watched. These network boobs are pushing the agenda of leftist politics and aberrant life styles to the point I almost puke when they come on. The Closer chose to educate those of us who still believe there are social mores with Beau Bridges' treatment of a detective who has left the department and returned as a transsexual. Of course the officers who are appalled are portrayed as bigoted and insensitive louts. In the NCIS episode, a not so covert defense of Muslims in the military is contrasted with the ones thought to be responsible for the death of a young Marine who chose to convert to Islam. The Christian right is smeared and then there is the usual attack on those from the rural south who are portrayed as bigots and referred to as "red throats" by Special Agent David. The term hate crime is used as though it is some sacred provision of the law.

I tried to sign in to comment on the episode by going to the CBS website, but I was blocked at every attempt by error messages. I know they are trembling in their boots just like those babbling fools in our federal legislature. I'm 62 years old and relegated to the demographic ready to accept my feebleness and get in line for the death panels. The sponsors could care less what I watch since I don't understand most of the adds anyway. So, I talk to the T.V. and banter with my wife in lieu doing something more dramatic. I also blog and hope that in some small way I'll convince some of my younger readers to stand and be counted. Bebe asked me tonight why every new show had to be about understanding and accepting some new form of sexual deviance. I told her it was a sign of a civilization in decline. It has been the mark of rotting societies since the beginning of time.

The president said today that we are on the precipice of passing historic health care legislation. I hope that is not true, but I think he inadvertently used the correct word. My Webster's New World College Dictionary describes it as follows: almost vertical or overhanging rock face; steep cliff. 2. a greatly hazardous situation, verging on disaster. I can't believe so many of the legislators who were elected to represent our side did not raise a hue and cry about the constitutionality of the bills in both houses and refuse to participate. Instead they argue about which portions of this illegal trash they will or will not support. I say clean them all out in 2010.

Lifelong Bureaucrats

If you want some insight into the Obama policy, take a look at this fascinating analysis of the percentage of time the cabinet members of various administrations have spent in the private sector. Obama's cabinet has the lowest percentage on record. They are, by and large, lifelong bureaucrats. Ayn Rand is, I'm sure, spinning in her grave.

Obama administration 8%. The lowest in the history of our nation. The previous two lows were in the Kennedy and Carter administrations, but they were both up around 30%. Reagan and Truman were near the top both around 60%.

In case you are wondering why I started with the networks, they are the bought and paid for arms of the leftist radicals who have taken over our country. All are working tooth and nail to push us into the third world so we can join the other miserable refuse in fear and dependence on a dictator or Oligarchy. All this talk about health care reform is as bogus as the administration.
Take a look at the statistics from the United Nations' International Health organization. See if you want to join the ranks of those with government run health care.

This article from the "Investor's Business Daily." It provides some very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:

U.S. 65%

England 46%

Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:

U.S. 93%

England 15%

Canada 43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:

U.S. 90%

England 15%

Canada 43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:

U.S. 77%

England 40%

Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:

U.S. 71

England 14

Canada 18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in "excellent health":

U.S. 12%

England 2%

Canada 6%

I don't know about you, but I don't want "Universal Healthcare" comparable to England or Canada .

Moreover, it was Sen. Harry Reid who said, "Elderly Americans must learn to accept the inconveniences of old age." WELL, LET'S SHIP HARRY TO CANADA OR ENGLAND !

We are being sold down the river. I intend to go kicking and screaming.


  1. Oh, don't stop at network programs! Get it on about commercials for medications, bathroom tissue etc.
    I quit watching AMC years ago, I tuned in the other day while I was channel surfing and my jaw just dropped! Soft porn on day time TV? I
    knew there was a reason I don't watch TV in the day time. judi

  2. YESSSSSSSSSSS!!! Thank you for the neat grouping of those telling statistics!!!


  3. But to link to this, I need a click-able link to the article from the "Investor's Business Daily." From which the UN Inter. Health Org. survey statistics came.

    I tried to find it myself, but failed in a Search.

    Please do you have the click-able link to the article????

  4. I'm in complete agreement. I quit watching Network TV anything years ago but am subjected to many offensive Adv's as y'all are. Some are actual Soft Porn!! Gosh.

    How about those of us who wish to make a statement, cancel our cable / satellite TV subscriptions? I'll bet they'd listen then! Most everything we need can be gotten on DVD's and / or the internet anyway.

  5. Pappy, that is another excellent post. It has been so long since we watched a TV show that I haven't a clue what you were referring to as far as names of programs. My family has been weird for a long time.

    Back in the ? early 1980's my husband was in law enforcement at Ohio State and a newspaper reporter from the Columbus dispatch was doing a story and asked my DH "Who shot JR?" The intelligent reply was "Who is JR?" Well, it made a funny read and most everyone at church was proud of him, but everyone else no doubt thought he was very uncool.

  6. Do a search on the London Daily Telegraph website for articles on the National Health Service. There's a scandal a day about filthy hospitals, botched procedures, inhuman 'care' of patients. Look at it this way: do we want the same types who run the DMV or the Post Office dispensing our health care? Can't you just see an SEIU-staffed hospital?!

    When «Louis» lived in France, it didn't take him long to figure out that the conditions in the NHS in the U.K. also exist in France.

    If socialized medicine is so good, why are U.S. doctors along the Canadian border doing a booming business with Canadian patients?

    The inquiring mind of «Louis la Vache» wants to know!

  7. Thanks to all my astute readers and commenters. I hope we can get past this illegal legislation. Pappy
