Health Legeslation added to stimulus bill

the following was written by NY former Lt. Governor Betsy McCaughey.
It relates that in the new Stimulus package that is being rushed through approval to aid the nation as soon as possible, some legeslation was attached that would be approved with it.
To create an NHS similar to England's in the U.S., and a federal al Electronically-controlled approval center where doctors and hospitals would need to submit treatment plans.  From the article, "According to [Tom] Daschle, doctors have to give up autonomy and “learn to operate less like solo practitioners.”
There are also provisions to enforce compliance to the National Health Coordinator's guidelines.  These 'guidelines' are as yet undefined in the legeslation, and are expected to be in place after its passing in to law.

WSJ: Warrentless Wiretap by President now Legal

"Ever since the Bush Administration's warrantless wiretapping program was exposed in 2005, critics have denounced it as illegal and unconstitutional. Those allegations rested solely on the fact that the Administration did not first get permission from the special court created by the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Well, as it happens, the same FISA court would beg to differ.

In a major August 2008 decision released yesterday in redacted form, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review, the FISA appellate panel, affirmed the government's Constitutional authority to collect national-security intelligence without judicial approval. The case was not made public before yesterday, and its details remain classified."

--> So now that the new administration is in power (Dems), it can be revealed to the public that LAST YEAR the courts ruled that the Gathering of Intelligence for National Security by the Executive Branch is legal on its face, and if the new Administration chooses to exercise that right then it's all A-OK (move along citizen).
So... what other empowering acts will now be declassified and ruled "allowed", or even new acts to be SCOTUS-Approved?

    Desparate, but not serious

A child tells us of Jesus..


During His life, Jesus had many arguments with sinners like the Pharisees and the Republicans.

Jesus also had twelve opossums.  The worst one was Judas Asparagus.  Judas was so evil that they named a terrible vegetable after him.

Jesus was a great man.  He healed many leopards and even preached to some Germans on the Mount.

But the Republicans and all those guys put Jesus on trial before Pontius the Pilot.  Pilot didn't stick up for Jesus.  He just washed his hands instead.

Anyways, Jesus died for our sins, then came back to life again. He went up to Heaven but will be back at the end of the Aluminum. His return is foretold in the book of Revolution.
