True American Hero – Betsy McCaughey

mccaugheyBetsy McCaughey is the former lieutenant governor from New York.  It is unclear how a Pittsburgher ended up in New York, but we will forgive her as she has become one of the most articulate voices for sanity in the health care debate.  In a nutshell, she has been speaking against the massive overhaul proposed by the Obama Administration.  She has had the nerve to use facts and figures to dispute claims by Pelosi, Reid, and Obama to scare folks into supporting their efforts.  With all of their efforts, however, Rasmussen reports that 54 percent of Americans oppose the new plan (44% strongly opposed) while 42 percent (down from 45%) support the plan (only 23% strongly support).

Recipe For Disaster

As we were preparing for our daughter’s graduation party, I was looking for a recipe to make olive tapenade,  I came across this unusual Emanuel family recipe. 

This is a very adaptive recipe and you have been forced-fed this on numerous occasions.  The most recent adaptation of this recipe was the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act.  This doughbill weighed in at a hefty 1,100 pages to Rep. John Boehner’s dismay


Expected modifications to the recipe include Universal Healthcare, Gun Control, Fairness Doctrine, Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Cap & Trade, and Global Warming.
