Yep, even the Mayo Clinic says it doesn’t make sense to lose money treating patients:

Mayo Clinic in Arizona to Stop Treating Some Medicare Patients
By David Olmos

Dec. 31 (Bloomberg) — The Mayo Clinic, praised by President Barack Obama as a national model for efficient health care, will stop accepting Medicare patients as of tomorrow at one of its primary-care clinics in Arizona, saying the U.S. government pays too little.

More than 3,000 patients eligible for Medicare, the government’s largest health-insurance program, will be forced to pay cash if they want to continue seeing their doctors at a Mayo family clinic in Glendale, northwest of Phoenix, said Michael Yardley, a Mayo spokesman. The decision, which Yardley called a two-year pilot project, won’t affect other Mayo facilities in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota.

And another inconvenient truth for Al Gorlioni.

No Rise of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Fraction in Past 160 Years, New Research Finds

ScienceDaily (Dec. 31, 2009) — Most of the carbon dioxide emitted by human activity does not remain in the atmosphere, but is instead absorbed by the oceans and terrestrial ecosystems. In fact, only about 45 percent of emitted carbon dioxide stays in the atmosphere.

——————————

In contradiction to some recent studies, he finds that the airborne fraction of carbon dioxide has not increased either during the past 150 years or during the most recent five decades.

Hey dummycrats! Maybe you should claim this stat! It is all because of Barack Hussein Obama’s election and the morons that are running the House and Senate; Democrats. Doesn’t quite fit your policies though does it?

More Guns, Less Crime in ’09
By
Joe Gimenez

Americans went on binges buying guns and ammunition in early 2009, worried that a radical leftist president and Democrat-dominated Congress would violate their Second-Amendment rights to keep and bear arms. The effects? Less murder, robbery, rape, and property crime, according to an FBI report released Monday. This gives the young president and Democrat Congress at least one proud but unintended accomplishment for which they’ll never claim credit.

Indeed, gun buyers were out in droves in late 2008 and early 2009. While it’s easy to infer that increased gun ownership figures align precisely with the drop in crime in the same calendar period, you won’t see that headline in the New York Times, despite their penchant for such inferences about increases in crime coinciding with increasing “guns on the street.”

Obama is a moron just like the rest of the idiots on the left that think this is anything but a war. This isn’t a law enforcement issue. It is a military issue that we are failing at because the current occupier to the WH is a pusillanimous douche-bag. All due respect, of course.

Cheney: Obama is Playing Pretend

Like the child he is:

As I’ve watched the events of the last few days it is clear once again that President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war. He seems to think if he has a low key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner and kill hundreds of people, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of 9/11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won’t be at war.

Another anti-gun group that really pisses me off is the assholes in the “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” group. The name is misleading. If they were actually against “illegal guns” then all they would need to do is enforce the current laws against illegal firearm ownership. Better yet, repeal the laws that they created which impede on the law abiding citizen’s right to keep and bear arms. They should stop the charade and drop the “illegal” part of their name and then everyone would know exactly what they stand for.

Bloomberg is a moron.

This is from David Codrea.

Bloomberg anti-gun blueprint revealed
By David Codrea

From CalGunLaws.com:

Calgunlaws has obtained the Mayors Against Illegal Guns “Blueprint For Federal Action on Illegal Guns” through a FOIA request to the White House.

Bloomberg’s group had previously refused to disclose the report.

The contents of the report were reviewed by our good friends the “Authorized Journalists” back on Oct. 3:

The “Blueprint for Federal Action on Illegal Guns,” a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Post… “would dramatically improve law enforcement’s ability to keep guns out of the hands of criminals — and, in doing so, save innocent lives.”

See, if they claim it, it must be so. Right? What, you expect evidence? And a reconciliation against “shall not be infringed”?

The Brady bunch really pisses me off. They are huge in lying to the public and fudging the numbers to make their case.

There are people that take them to task at every opportunity, and Howard Nemerov is one of them. He does it with the facts and his research on the matter is impeccable.

Here’s his latest on the nut jobs over there at the Brady bunch.

Guns, women, and the Brady Campaign
By Howard Nemerov

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence believes that keeping firearms in the home is dangerous for women. But recent research indicates that their conclusion has little factual support.

On a page entitled “Facts, Studies and Reports,” the Brady website references a 1997 study originally published in the Archives of Internal Medicine. This study surveyed just three counties across the country, which the authors called an “analysis of a large population.” The authors’ conclusion: “keeping a gun in the home is associated with increased risk of both suicide and homicide for women.”
