On the program, Ralph F. Weber CLU, CFP, GBA, REBC 2009, President of Route Three Inc., and Route Three Life Health Disability Inc., an authority on Health Care Insurance, he is a speaker with Consumers for Health Care Choices, and the publisher for the website, Stop Government Medicine.
Is Government Medicine the answer?
What's the truth about Canada's health care system?
Why doesn't the math work?
What part of our system is it, that's fundamentally flawed, and how can we fix it so that we have choices, and we don't kill innovation or bankrupt our health industry or our economy?
I want to ask Ralph about Obama's proposed Cash for Senior Citizens, "a $250.00 bribe to help the medicine go down," and what does he make of Al From's op-ed in Thursday's WSJ,"Democrats Don't Need the Public Option: Transformational reforms have always passed with bipartisan majorities."
This weekend, a world premiere happens, in the spirit of the Tea Party march on Washinton D.C., in homes across the country, all that the same time. At 8 pm, ET, and 5 pm, PT, people will watch the documentary, Not Evil, Just Wrong, which challenges the dangerous and destructive hysteria about Global Warming.I am going to a gathering where there will be at least 12 other people present. Are you going to a Premiere Screening? I hope you'll email me or call in during the show and let us know. I hope you'll share your story.
The lines are open. I hope you put us on your calendar, tune in, give us a call, and join us for hot talk radio, Saturday at 10AM PT, one fast hour on CRN, Channel 1

Botched Paramilitary Police Raids: An Epidemic of "Isolated Incidents"
"If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern." —Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006. An interactive map of botched SWAT and paramilitary police raids, released in conjunction with the Cato policy paper "Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids," by Radley Balko. What does this map mean? How to use this map View Original Map and Database
The proliferation of SWAT teams, police militarization, and the Drug War have given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of "no-knock" or "quick-knock" raids on suspected drug offenders. Because these raids are often conducted based on tips from notoriously unreliable confidential informants, police sometimes conduct SWAT-style raids on the wrong home, or on the homes of nonviolent, misdemeanor drug users. Such highly-volatile, overly confrontational tactics are bad enough when no one is hurt -- it's difficult to imagine the terror an innocent suspect or family faces when a SWAT team mistakenly breaks down their door in the middle of the night.
But even more disturbing are the number of times such "wrong door" raids unnecessarily lead to the injury or death of suspects, bystanders, and police officers. Defenders of SWAT teams and paramilitary tactics say such incidents are isolated and rare. The map above aims to refute that notion.
|Death of an innocent.||Death or injury of a police officer.||Death of a nonviolent offender.|
|Raid on an innocent suspect.||Other examples of paramilitary police excess.||Unnecessary raids on doctors and sick people.|
