Government has a 23% success rate at delivering vaccines since it took that industry over.

Posted by iusbvision on November 20, 2009

Government legislated and regulated the American vaccine industry out of business and out of the country thanks in large part to Senator Hillary Clinton.

The results…

Sarah Palin on the Dennis Miller Show

Posted by iusbvision on November 20, 2009

This is a good interview. Palin goes more into her record and policy in this interview as opposed to the conflict stuff that the elite media always wants to talk about.

Palin also explains in part her decision to leave the governor’s chair early. MY problem with Palin is that previously she is only told two thirds of the story. She tells how all was left was a lame duck session of the legislature. She had already gotten her legislative agenda through and the Democrats were exploiting a loophole in the Alaska ethics law to cost her family and the State of Alaska millions of dollars.

In this interview she finally put forth the other third of the story, which should have been front and center from minute one. Palin makes it very clear that she could not fight the awful, cruel and hurtful policies of the Democratic leadership while cooped up in Alaska. She had to bring that fight to the lower 48.

University of California Regents Approve 32 Percent Student Fee Increase

Posted by iusbvision on November 20, 2009

UPDATE – Students riot

Socialists spend until they run out of other peoples money and few places are a better demonstration of this than the California budget crisis that regulated, taxed, corrupted and tinkered with its economy to the point where the jobs and wealth are fleeing the state.

So the first group to feel the pain are the ones with the least political power. Young people by and large don’t vote, don’t donate to campaigns and are easily manipulated by emotional appeals in political campaigns and are most likely to vote for the same leftist incumbents, or replace one progressive with another.

University of California students will get a much larger tuition bill next year.

The Board of Regents on Thursday approved a 32 percent increase in undergraduate student fees, despite protests by hundreds of demonstrators outside the regents’ meeting at UCLA.

By next fall, undergraduate fees will be boosted by $2,500, sending the average annual education cost at a UC campus to more than $10,000.

Regents say they had to raise fees because the cash-strapped state government can’t meet the university’s funding needs.

The decision came as hundreds of students chanted and marched outside the meeting hall to protest the measure. Some students also took over another UCLA building and chained the doors shut.

Police in riot gear kept an eye on the protesters.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Officers armed with beanbag guns stood by as hundreds of protesters chanted, marched and even took over a building Thursday on the UCLA campus, where University of California regents were scheduled to vote on a 32 percent student fee increase.

The UC Board of Regents is considering boosting undergraduate fees – the equivalent of tuition – by $2,500 next year. The average annual fee for a full-time undergraduate would jump to about $10,300 – three times the cost only a decade ago.

For a second day, the proposal drew demonstrators to the University of California, Los Angeles. Some came from other UC campuses and stayed overnight in a tent city.

The demonstrators outside UCLA’s Covel Commons building chanted, beat drums and waved signs urging “No fee hikes” and “Wanted: Leadership.”

One student was arrested for obstructing an officer. She was cited and released, said UCLA spokesman Phil Hampton.

Campus police in helmets with face shields stood guard outside the conference building. The campus was also being monitored by police from several UC campuses and more than a dozen California Highway Patrol officers armed with beanbag-tossing shotguns.

MSNBC’s Norah O’Donnell Grills Little Girl Over Palin Support

Posted by iusbvision on November 20, 2009

I have seen low, but wow this takes the cake. O’Donnell is engaging in a half truth.

And now for the truth..

Sarah Palin opposed the bailouts and has stated so. Sarah Palin was the VICE-presidential candidate which means that if the Presidential candidate takes a position so do you. Anyone who accepts the VP nomination knows this. Palin went back to her own views after the campaign was over.

Joe Biden had some different policy positions than Obama, Biden conformed.

Dick Cheney had disagreements with President Bush, especially on Scooter Libby and standing up to the administrations critics.  Cheney conformed until he was out of office and is now on the offensive (and his approval numbers are going up).

John Edwards was more hawkish than John Kerry, Edwards conformed to the ticket.

Joe Lieberman had a great many policy differences with Al Gore, especially on Social Security policy, national defense and environmental policy. Lieberman argued for Al Gore’s positions in the debates. Lieberman assumed his old policy positions after the campaign was over. Did MSNBC find a little girl Lieberman supporter to grill over it?

Al Gore was further to the left than Bill Clinton, it is well known that they didn’t get along. Gore played the VP role as the VP role is expected to.

Dan Quayle had domestic policy differences with President Bush 41. I know this because I have talked with VP Quayle about this very subject. Quayle is a Reaganite and Bush 41 never was.

Bush 41 had differences with President Reagan.

LBJ hated JFK and reversed many of his policy positions after JFK was murdered.

Question of the day; why the double standard when it comes to former VP candidate Palin?

Senator Graham Grills Attorney General Eric Holder Over NYC Terrorism Trials

Posted by iusbvision on November 20, 2009

Watch Senator Graham run legal rings around the Attorney General, who by the way has a conflict of interest because his law firm is playing an active role in the defense of these terrorists.

The Obama Administration refuses to give intelligence on the jihadist who killed 14 people at Ft. Hood but is perfectly willing to give national security secrets to 9/11 terrorists as a part of the discovery process with this bone headed move to take enemy combatants and treat them like bank robbers.

There is only one reason for this trial is to have a show trial where ACLU lawyers and lawyers from the Attorney General’s law firm can put the United States on trial as their defense. They will try to get all evidence thrown out by claiming torture and that they werent read their “Miranda” warnings.  This will serve the purpose of putting such claims in the court aqs evidence which canb them be used by so called international courts to invent war crimes charges against members of the previous administration.

Will this happen for sure? We will have to see but opening it up to even the possibility of it is foolish. These are illegal military combatants who should be tried in a military court as this is a martial matter not a criminal one.

Pay close attention to the part where the Attorney General is asked about previous precedent about trying enemy combatants caught on the battlefield in civilian criminal court. Holder doesn’t know the answer to the question. This is very disturbing because precedent is the bread and butter of the law. The first thing any lawyer does is scour the record to see what courts may have ruled on this issue. This is a matter of basic competence.
