All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


They Did It to Themselves

I say old man we screwed the pooch this time.

In Rochdale, people who have no dentist but who are in dire straits can visit an emergency clinic that very day — provided they can get an appointment. The phones open at 8 a.m.; the books are closed by about 8:10.

The waiting room at the center was a testament to his concerns. Sitting by the window was George Glasper, 81. One of Mr. Glasper's teeth had broken off a week earlier, but when he called his dentist, he was told the practice had become a private one. Efforts to sign up with four other dentists failed, he said.

Nearby sat Shahana Begum, 27, a Bangladeshi immigrant with a bad toothache and no dentist. Her stepdaughter, Sanya Karim, 16, said her family had been trying to find a health service dentist for six years, since moving to Rochdale from Birmingham.

The American left wants British style health care. They’ve got to be out of their mind.

This is what happens when a service becomes “free”. The quality goes to pot, the good providers refuse to play and the queue to get service from the remaining providers is more than six years long!

Yet in America they still cry out for socialized medicine. Hillary will campaign on it. Like Ted Kennedy said about Bush’s socialized drug plan, “it’s a down payment”; meaning, one small step for G. Bush, one giant step for K. Marx.

GWB and his ilk: Representing the Ted Kennedy branch of the Republican Party, since day one.
