Why we need border security NOW:Somali terrorists are coming through Mexico

May 26, 2010

Texas asked for troops on the border over a year ago.   Gov. Perry has received no response from the Obama administration.   As I stated before,  it is going to take a major terrorist attack to wake up Obama and the rest of the leftists.

Please note that the 1200 national guard troops sent to the Arizona border are IMPOTENT.  They cannot aim one gun at illegals.   All  they will do is help with surveillance and administrative duties.  When will the mainstream media report the whole story?

Sarah Para Bellum (aka Sarah Palin)

May 22, 2010

Note that she is choking a rattle snake and stomping on “Rules for Radicals.”  She has “Death Panels”  on a blackberry in her left hand,  a cross necklace and what appears to be the Constitution and a Bible in her pocket.

Love this caricature!    The original article (link below) has a ton more explanation of the symbolism:

It is going to take another terrorist attack before Obama and the Congress take border security seriously

Call Frito Lay 1-800-352-4477 and tell them to support Arizona

Please call Frito Lay 1-800-352-4477   and tell them you will never buy a Frito Lay product again  if they withdraw corporate sponsorship of the Tostitos Bowl because of lobbying by Hispanic groups.

Hurrah for Sarah Palin–she’s not going to support a “Girls Club” in Congress

May 15, 2010

I was furious when Sen Kay Bailey Hutchison announced she would never campaign against or say a bad word about any female Democrat.   And somehow she needed to support the Girls Club in Congress rather than fight for conservative causes.  Texas told her what it thought of her allegiance with Dems when she lost in the primary to Perry.

Let’s elect conservatives in November–no one cares about gender; we want conservative fighters.

Do you really want a PA or NP taking care of your grandmother?

From  Sermo:

PA misdiagnosis – this is the future of medical care

86 yr old woman, previously in remarkably good health, physically and mentally active, still very involved in town government, cultural activities, the arts,etc, looks and acts ten to fifteen years younger than her age.  Seen as outpt by PA for new SOB and weakness (no appt. available with IM doc).  Diagnosed with pneumonia, despite no fever, no antecedent respiratory infection, placed on antibiotic and sent home.  Overnight developed increased SOB, ambulance to ED this AM, diagnosed with PE.

This is the wave of the future.  We would be better off training PAs and NPs to be technicians – in other words, proceduralists – than handing off to them the responsibility to think and diagnose.    The PA never did the five years of clinical training to be able to recognize a pulmonary embolus.  He hasn’t got the training to think that weakness, shortness of breath, decreased breath sounds, without fever or any upper respiratory symptoms, might be something other than pneumonia.

Expect a tsunami of similar cases.  There’s a reason why we go through all the years of training.

Here’s the kind of doctor you will see under Obamacare

That’s right — they’re not from Texas. Newly licensed doctors enlisting to treat the state’s Medicaid and Medicare patients are more likely to have been trained at international medical schools, according to a review of state medical licensing data.

Of the roughly 1,500 doctors who have received fast-tracked licenses in the last three years in exchange for agreeing to treat the state’s neediest patients, nearly 40 percent were trained at international medical schools — everywhere from India and Mexico to Uzbekistan and Rwanda — while a quarter were trained at Texas medical schools. The Texas Medical Board fast-tracked more licenses for doctors trained in Pakistan than it did for those educated in Louisiana or Oklahoma. (Scroll over our interactive world map to see where these internationally trained doctors got their medical education.)
