Vitter addresses Tea Party session on Healthcare

  • By MICHELLE MILLHOLLON
  • Advocate Capitol News Bureau
  • Published: Jan 13, 2010 - Page: 1B

At the start of a town hall-style meeting featuring U.S. Sen. David Vitter on Tuesday night, Bob Reid with the Tea Party of Louisiana ran through the ground rules for the audience.

No cursing, Reid said, and no questions about a recall petition for U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La.

Vitter, R-La., immediately defied the rules.

“I have a question about that, which is where do I sign?” Vitter said.

What Is a Right?

By Andrew Napolitano

 

In the continually harsh public discourse over the President's proposals for federally-managed healthcare, the Big Government progressives in both the Democratic and the Republican parties have been trying to trick us. These folks, who really want the government to care for us from cradle to grave, have been promoting the idea that health care is a right. In promoting that false premise, they have succeeded in moving the debate from WHETHER the feds should micro-manage health care to HOW the feds should micro-manage health care. This is a false premise, and we should reject it. Health care is not a right; it is a good, like food, like shelter, and like clothing.

 

What is a right? A right is a gift from God that extends from our humanity. Thinkers from St. Thomas Aquinas, to Thomas Jefferson, to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to Pope John Paul II have all argued that our rights are a natural part of our humanity. We own our bodies, thus we own the gifts that emanate from our bodies. So, our right to life, our right to develop our personalities, our right to think as we wish, to say what we think, to publish what we say, our right to worship or not worship, our right to travel, to defend ourselves, to use our own property as we see fit, our right to due process -- fairness -- from the government, and our right to be left alone, are all rights that stem from our humanity. These are natural rights that we are born with. The government doesn't give them to us and the government doesn't pay for them and the government can't take them away, unless a jury finds that we have violated someone else's rights.

Happy Bill of Rights Day

By Anthony Gregory

 

December 15 is neglected by most Americans for its historical significance as the anniversary of the Bill of Rights. Even worse, American politicians neglect the actual Bill of Rights on a day-to-day basis.

 

Whether or not the Bill of Rights can ever be an effective means of limiting the government is open to debate. However, the Bill of Rights does offer a fairly good outline of a free society, and it shows how far our country has strayed.

 

In an America with a full respect for the Bill of Rights, there would be no Federal Communications Commission regulating the airwaves and forbidding certain speech, no Federal Election Commission limiting how much Americans can donate to political candidates or what they can say in independent political ads, no Food and Drug Administration harassment of pharmaceutical and wine producers regarding their commercial speech, no federal laws that have anything to do with religion whatsoever, and no federally established "free-speech zones."

 

There would be no federal laws disarming Americans, prohibiting airlines from allowing pilots or passengers to carry guns on planes, or limiting how much ammo or what kind of firearms people can buy and own.

 

There would be no Patriot Act, no secret searches, no spying on telecommunications without a warrant.

Statement Introducing the Free Competition in Currency Act

By Ron Paul

 

Madame Speaker, I rise to introduce the Free Competition in Currency Act of 2009. Currency, or money, is what allows civilization to flourish. In the absence of money, barter is the name of the game; if the farmer needs shoes, he must trade his eggs and milk to the cobbler and hope that the cobbler needs eggs and milk. Money makes the transaction process far easier. Rather than having to search for someone with reciprocal wants, the farmer can exchange his milk and eggs for an agreed-upon medium of exchange with which he can then purchase shoes.

 

This medium of exchange should satisfy certain properties: it should be durable, that is to say, it does not wear out easily; it should be portable, that is, easily carried; it should be divisible into units usable for every-day transactions; it should be recognizable and uniform, so that one unit of money has the same properties as every other unit; it should be scarce, in the economic sense, so that the extant supply does not satisfy the wants of everyone demanding it; it should be stable, so that the value of its purchasing power does not fluctuate wildly; and it should be reproducible, so that enough units of money can be created to satisfy the needs of exchange.

 

Over millennia of human history, gold and silver have been the two metals that have most often satisfied these conditions, survived the market process, and gained the trust of billions of people. Gold and silver are difficult to counterfeit, a property which ensures they will always be accepted in commerce. It is precisely for this reason that gold and silver are anathema to governments. A supply of gold and silver that is limited in supply by nature cannot be inflated, and thus serves as a check on the growth of government. Without the ability to inflate the currency, governments find themselves constrained in their actions, unable to carry on wars of aggression or to appease their overtaxed citizens with bread and circuses.

Get Them the Hell Out Of There

By Todd Trahan


There is ample evidence to come to a rightful and just conclusion that a large majority of our elected officials in Washington are not only un-Patriotic but un- American as well. What is Patriotic about sinking this country and its following generations into a debt that may never be able to be paid, most of it to a Communist Country? What is American about politicians that sit in DC and conduct themselves so irresponsibly that we scratch our heads in utter wonderment as we watch them spend more taxpayer dollars on another earmark or pet project? The unconstitutionality of the current set of politicians from the White House on down is unprecedented in our history as a nation. One could certainly point to incompetence. One could also rest his judgment on a purposeful agenda that is designed to have America depart from her constitutional roots. The list could go on and on.

 

In the movie “Saving Private Ryan” we see the Chief of Staff of the Army- General George Marshall and 3 Advisors in an office as Marshall informs the others about the fate of a family. Three brothers have been killed and there is only one left alive – they hope. Marshall informs the Advisors of his desire to go and find the 4th son and bring him back home so his mother will not lose all of her sons. The Advisors start to speak of how difficult it may be to accomplish this task.

 

The Chief of Staff goes behind his desk and pulls out a letter and reads it. It is from Abraham Lincoln and it is addressed to a mother, Mrs. Bixby of Boston, who had lost 3 sons in the Civil War. You hear then President Lincoln express his inadequate words of consolation to a mother who had lost so much for the cause of freedom. Marshall then looks up at these men and says these words. “If that boy's alive, we’re gonna send someone to find him - and we’re gonna get him the hell out of there.”

The Employee Meeting

From Hezekiah Wyman


I would like to start by thanking you for attending this meeting, though it’s not like you had much of a choice. After all, attendance was mandatory. I’m also glad many of you accepted my invitation to your family members to be here as well. I have a few remarks to make to all of you, and then we’ll retire to the ballroom for a great lunch and some employee awards.

 

I felt that this meeting was important enough to close all 12 of our tire and automotive shops today so that you could be here. To reassure you, everybody is being paid for the day — except me. Since our stores are closed we’re making no money. That economic loss is mine to sustain. Carrington Automotive has 157 full time employees and around 30 additional part-timers. All of you are here.. I thank you for that.

 

When you walked into this auditorium you were handed a rather thick 78-page document. Many of you have already taken a peek. You were probably surprised to see that it’s my personal tax return for 2008. Those of you who are adept at reading these tax returns will see that last year my taxable income was $534,000.00. Now I’m sure this seems rather high to many of you. So … let’s talk about this tax return.

 

Carrington Automotive Enterprises is what we call a Sub-S – a Subchapter S corporation. The name comes from a particular part of our tax code. Sub-S status means that the income from all 12 of our stores is reported on my personal tax return. Businesses that report their income on the owner’s personal tax return are referred to as “small businesses.” So, you see now that this $534,000 is really the total taxable income – the total combined profit from all 12 of our stores. That works out to an average of a bit over $44,000 per store.
