Let me read that to you, again. This is profound. "[M]ore than four-fifths of the reduction in unemployment has been accomplished by a dropping adult labor force participation rate." It's exactly what I said. Obama is lowering the rate by destroying the job market, and even this economist at the University of Maryland has figured it out. It's "essentially persuading adults they don't need a job, or the job they could find is not worth having." There has been, by the way, a near viral response to this slideshow I told you about yesterday about "Julia."
She's the cradle-to-crave, typical Obama voter, a woman from age three to age 67. Everybody has taken their turn at turning that around and making it funny and so forth. But the fact of the matter is, that's the dream citizen as far as the Obama administration is concerned. That's the dream citizen: Constant care, cradle-to-grave, taken care of, everything in life provided by the government. Everything, except a husband. This woman had a child but there was no mention of a man in her life at any point.
Not even buried in the garden!
There was no mention of a husband, no mention of a boyfriend, no mention of a sperm bank. No mention of a gay fashion designer. I mean, no mention of a man anywhere in that slideshow. So this economist has it right: "essentially persuading adults they don't need a job." That is what Obama has done! Oh, he's out there talking it up real good, and he talks about what theoretically happens in the private sector. You go to the school, you work, you get paid, and you start a business. You take some risks.
He doesn't believe any of that.
What he's actually done is promised to pay the freight for people who don't want to work anymore.
The only way 88 million Americans can be out of the job market is either for there to be a depression or for the government (or somebody) to be taking care of them so that they don't have to work.
And that's exactly what is happening.
And I maintain to you it's by design and on purpose.
RUSH: I do have a little bit more data here on the unemployment information, and I want to stick with it because it's a passion of mine that you know the truth, particularly when everybody's being bombarded with the lies that the administration wants to settle in. Here is what Obama will not be telling college kids as he runs around and warns them of the pitfalls awaiting them if Mitt Romney's elected.
The unemployment rate among jobseekers between the ages of 16 and 19 was 25% in April, up from 23% in February. Youth unemployment has been above 23% for 34 months. The Obama administration promised us that with the passage of the stimulus bill in 2009, the unemployment rate would never reach 8%. It has been above 8% for a period of time so long that it can accurately and truthfully be said that the unemployment rate has not been this high for this long since the Great Depression.
And that's a fact.
Not one promise, not one theory, not one assurance has come close to being true as told us by this administration. The unemployment rate has not been this high for this long since the Great Depression. This is life in Obama's America. It's reality. This is not a cartoon; this is not a slideshow; this is not a socialist utopian slideshow with a woman named Julia. And they shoulda named her Ludmilla or Svetlana or Maureena, not Julia. This is why Obama creates fictional stories about fictional people.
Reality is the enemy to the Obama administration.
So Obama's job is to paint a nonexistent picture of Never Land in the years ahead, and that's what that slideshow is. By now Obama should be able to proudly report on robust, mind-boggling growth as Reagan did this far into his first term. But it's going the other way. The only way Barack Obama can get the unemployment rate down is to kill jobs. That's the only way, and that's how he's doing it. There aren't any being created, folks. That 113,000 or 115,000 is a rounding error. With O... (interruption)
Well, that's the good question. I don't know. You have 88 million Americans not in the job force, but they're eating. Eighty-eight million Americans not in the job force are using their cell phone phones. Eighty-eight million people not working are driving their cars. There is no pain to not having a job. That's not true for every one of them, but it's true for a number of 'em, and we don't know how many. There are some people for whom unemployment (or if you run out of that, turn on your Social Security disability payments) pays more than some of the jobs that are being created in this administration.
Unemployment compensation plus food stamps adds up to more than two-thirds of the jobs and the kind of jobs being created. See, during the Great Depression, when whatever the numbers were who were unemployed, they weren't comfortable. There was a sense of urgency. They would dig ditches if they had to. They will pick cotton if they had to. But now, it isn't necessary. And, by the way, we don't have the money to support people not working!
We are $16 trillion in debt.
We don't have the money.
We are borrowing it from the ChiComs, enabling them to ramp up their military complex. This is a horrible, horrible situation. You want some more numbers? I have numbers. Just like Bill Burkett had numbers tying George Bush to the National Guard, I have numbers. Since President Obama took office, the unemployment rate has increased from 7.8% to 8.1%. And as we know, it's been in the nines. There are currently a million unemployed workers that have given up looking for work since the last report.
Do you realize what that means?
Given up looking for work!
Therefore they're not in the labor force. Therefore they're not counted. There are currently 7.8 million workers working part-time for economic reasons. Only 115,000 jobs were added. The labor force participation rate is 63.6%, a 30-year low. We are at a 30-year low in the number of Americans working. With 8.1% unemployment, Obama has extended his record of 8%-plus unemployment now to 39 consecutive months. It has not been this high, this long, since the Great Depression.
If the labor force participation rate had stayed the same as in March, the unemployment rate would have risen to 8.4%. In other words, if they hadn't just said that a million people left the job market, the unemployment rate would be 8.4%. It woulda gone up. This is precisely why I'm saying to you that to get the rate down, Obama is killing jobs. Our buddy Jim Pethokoukis points out: "If the size of the US labor force as a share of the total population was the same as it was when Barack Obama took office ... the U-3 unemployment rate would be 11.0%," not 8.1%.
And if the unemployment rate were 11% today, what do you think the prospects of Obama's reelection would be? They would be over. I repeat this again: The unemployment rate would be 11% today if the labor force was the same size as when Obama took office. Now, you're asking, "Well, how can they just eliminate the jobs?" Well, for one thing, they have eliminated 'em. (chuckles) Have you gone and tried to find one lately? Number two, they run the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Department of Labor. If they want to say a million people left the job market last month, they can say it.
And they're probably right! They're probably right.
Because if 88 million people are not working but they're still eating and driving and using their cell phones and able to watch the E! Entertainment Network after Entertainment Tonight while they're TiVoing Two and a Half Men -- all to watch Obama later that night slow-jam the news with Jimmy Fallon -- what does it matter whether they have a job or not? The unemployment rate, if the US labor force was the same size today as when Obama took office, would be 11%, folks, instead of 8.1%.
In April of 1984, coming out of similar Jimmy Carter-type economics and circumstances, Ronaldus Magnus was approaching the end of his first term. In April of 1984, the US economy added a population-adjusted 480,000 jobs. That was at the beginning of the Reagan boom. That was the beginning of the boom with Reaganomics, which Obama and the Democrats tell us didn't work! They tell us it never worked. It's as simple as this: The number of people in the job market is based on something called the Household Survey at the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
And do you know what they do there?
They call people and ask, "Have you looked for to a job in the last four weeks?" And whatever the answer is gets tabulated. That's how scientific it is. That's where we are. And, finally: "US worker productivity fell from January through March by the most in a year." I thought we had a "moderate recovery" happening here, and I thought we had "turned a corner." I thought we'd been around the bend and back. I thought we were back from up against the wall! So not only are fewer people working; their output fell by the most in a year.
"While worker output rose, the number of hours worked increased by an even larger amount." Therefore the overall output was down. You see how they're monkeying these numbers?
No offense to monkeys.

Vice President Marco Rubio?
Stephen F. Hayes
Senator Marco Rubio appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace this weekend and gave viewers a clear understanding why many conservatives see him as a strong candidate to be Mitt Romney’s running mate. Rubio answered Wallace’s questions directly and forcefully, drawing sharp contrasts between Obama’s record and the Republican vision for the next four years.
Part of what makes Rubio so effective, beyond his obvious grasp of the substance of the policies being discussed, is the tone he uses to criticize the Obama administration. It’s not so much anger, though some anger might be warranted, but disappointment. So when Rubio talks about Obama’s failings on the economy, he reminds viewers of the promises Obama made – to revive the economy and restore the faith of Americans in their government – and laments the president’s inability to deliver. He did the same thing when asked for his reaction to the Obama administration’s use of the death of Osama bin Laden.
“Let me focus on this issue of bin Laden for a moment. That was a very proud day for all Americans. Our Armed Forces did a phenomenal job and the president made an important and wise decision – and he has gotten his due credit, and rightfully so, for making that decision. But now he’s taken if further. He has taken something that should unite the American people – a moment of pride for our country – and instead turned it into a weapon of political warfare. And I think that’s wrong. I really do. I think it’s wrong for the president and for the vice president to take this issue and use it for politics.”
Rubio then used his disappointment to make a larger point about Obama, one that speaks directly to the segment of the electorate who invested in their hopes in Obama and have been let down.
“And it goes back to the point I tried to make earlier: When this president ran for office in 2008, he said he was going to be different. He was going to be a post-partisan uniter, to bring Americans together. And three and a half years later, the president, quite frankly, has become just like anyone else in Washington, D.C. And in his obsessive effort to win his reelection, he has lost himself and he has lost what makes him different. And this issue of they’ve used the bin Laden raid is one example about how this administration is just like everybody else.”
It’s an argument that won’t appeal to the 30-something percent of the electorate who will vote for Obama under any circumstances and are now spending their time explaining and excusing his failures. But Obama won because he inspired millions of new voters to invest their faith in him and persuaded others to support his cause. It’s those voters who will be so important this time around – and their decisions about whether to back him again, to stay home or to support Romney, will go a long way to determining who wins the election.
Rubio spoke to them Sunday morning—and, if Mitt Romney was watching, it’s hard to believe he didn’t see the potential of having Rubio as a full-time spokesman on his behalf this fall.
That is what much of the current speculation about Rubio-as-running mate misses. It’s been largely a focus on geography and ethnicity – a steady stream of musing about his ability (or alleged inability) to move Hispanic voters to the Romney column and theorizing about whether the mere presence of his name would win Florida for Romney. The whole thing has a static quality about it as if what Rubio actually did on the ticket was somehow secondary.
It’s not. And the strongest argument for Rubio’s inclusion on the ticket, in spite of concerns about his age, relative inexperience, and a challenging friend, is how Rubio would actually perform as a candidate. The quality of his appearance on Fox News Sunday is the rule, not the exception. On the stump, he usually speaks without notes and in thirty minutes, with seemingly little effort, can transform a room of sleepy senior citizens into a raucous crowd of would-be reformers ready to put up yard signs until Election Day. Beyond that, imagine a television ad in which running mate Rubio speaks directly to the camera and tells the story of his upbringing, of his mother working as a maid and his father as a bartender so that their children might have opportunities that they did not. In Rubio’s telling, it’s both exceptional and typical – a moving tale of family sacrifice that will be familiar to so many across the country.
There are reasons that Romney might want another running mate and reasons Rubio might prefer to remain in the Senate. But if Romney decides to ask Rubio to be considered and eventually to run with him, I suspect it’ll have much less to do with Rubio’s name and his native state than it will with what Rubio would do as a running mate and vice president.

Bernardine Dohrn has a history with the Justice Department. More specifically, in the early 1970s, she was one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives because of her actions with the Weather Underground, a violent radical organization.
Times have changed. In 2010 and 2011, the Justice Department saw fit to give $400,000 in grants to an organization that lists Dohrn as a member of its board of directors: a $150,000 grant in September of 2010 and a $250,000 grant a year later.
The organization that received the grants is the W. Haywood Burns Institute, and the project that brought in the money is the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative. JDAI aims to keep juvenile criminals out of ssecure confinement” and to reduce racial disparities in the juvenile justice system.
As a prominent figure in the Weather Underground — which was initially known as simply “Weatherman” — Dohrn helped lead the “Days of Rage” Chicago riot, and during her tenure the group was responsible for numerous bombings of government buildings. Although Dohrn has never renounced her past, her various legal troubles are behind her: She served some probation, several charges were dismissed, and she spent some time in jail for refusing to cooperate with an investigation. She’s now a law professor at Northwestern University, and her husband, fellow Weather Underground co-founder William Ayers, is a retired education professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
The Burns Institute’s name comes from a man who himself exemplified the blend of civil-rights activism, academic prestige, and radical politics that defines the group today. W. Haywood Burns worked with Martin Luther King Jr. during the civil-rights movement and eventually became the dean of the law school at Queens College. He also was married to Bernardine Dohrn’s sister, Jennifer, and he“represented the black radical Angela Davis against charges of kidnapping and murder, and coordinated the defense for inmates indicted in the Attica prison riot,” as the New York Times noted in his 1996 obituary.
The Institute’s biography of Burns refers to the 1971 Attica rioters as “people struggling for self-determination.” The rioters protested poor conditions by taking their guards hostage until police launched a full assault on the prison. One of the group’s leaders was Sam Melville, who had bombed numerous government and business buildings shortly before the Weather Underground began doing the same thing. After the horribly managed police assault left 39 dead — in addition to an officer who was killed by the rioters at the outset of the incident, as well as several inmates who were killed by other prisoners during the chaos — the Weather Underground bombed a New York Department of Corrections facility in retaliation. Virtually everyone involved in the Attica riots and their aftermath acted poorly, and yet, as Patrick Brennan has noted on NRO before, a certain group of aging radicals seems to see the incident as some kind of triumph.
Meanwhile, JDAI, the project that earned the Burns Institute its Justice grants, is spearheaded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. In 2010 the federal government agreed to help the Casey Foundation fund training and other consulting services while it expands the program to new sites, and it was through this agreement that the Burns Institute secured its grants. During the grant-application process, the Justice Department does not typically require groups to provide lists of their directors.
The Burns Institute’s primary goal is to reduce racial disparities in juvenile justice, a problem it attributes primarily to discrimination rather than disproportionate misbehavior. The Institute aims to get the U.N. to take a role in American juvenile justice, and it also works with local governments (for a fee) to address the issue. The organization’s process involves bringing together various stakeholders — police, parents, prosecutors, etc. — to discuss policy changes. The group says that this helps decrease juvenile confinement without sacrificing public safety.
If that’s true, it’s good. But there are plenty of charities that do good work without including Weather Underground co-founders on their boards of directors and openly praising prison rioters on their websites. Presidential administrations have considerable discretion when it comes to federal grants. But it is not too much to ask that the Justice Department avoid giving money to groups with ties to violent radicals.
The Burns Institute did not provide a comment in time for publication, Dohrn did not reply to several attempts to contact her, and the Office of Justice Programs declined to provide a quote for attribution.

THE OBAMAS' JINX: OPRAH LOSSES $330M
Losses at Oprah's OWN approach a staggering $330m as industry insiders predict it will be axed within the year
MAIL ON LINE U.K. 7 May 2012
The losses at Oprah Winfrey’s troubled cable channel are approaching a staggering $330 million, according to a report over the weekend.
Industry insiders believe the channel - the Oprah Winfrey network (OWN) - will not last another year unless they come up with a hit show and make a dramatic turnaround.
Though ratings have seen a slight insurgence thanks to interview program Oprah's Next Chapter, it has stumbled since the get go with ratings of just 308,000 daily.
From left: Christina Norman, CEO of OWN, Oprah Winfrey, Chairman of OWN and David Zaslav, President and CEO of Discovery Communications, toast the moment of **noallow** in January 2011
It is believed shows which do not feature the chat show queen herself are not popular with viewers.
Discovery, which partnered with Winfrey to **noallow** the network and has been underwriting its costs, has invested nearly $600 million in it since 2008, according to an extensive report in Businessweek magazine.
Since it started on the air in January 2011, it may have lost as much as $330million, according to the magazine.
David Zaslav, the chief executive officer of Discovery Communications who talked Oprah into the idea of OWN, is famously impatient with money-losing operations within his company and insiders say he will not put up with the aiing network's losses for much longer.
Winfrey appeared before advertisers two weeks ago to ask for more time, telling them: 'I am in the climb of my life. I am climbing Kilimanjaro.'
Although she doesn't risk losing a lot of money from the channel's failings, Oprah's reputation is at stake.
Over her 39-year career, The Oprah Winfrey Show had as many as 12.5 million viewers. O, The Oprah Magazine had more than two million subscribers. And her Internet site, Oprah.com, draws more than three million unique visitors a month.
Her image as the most successful TV star of her generation is on the line.
E-mails to OWN and Oprah’s production company, Harpo, were not returned yesterday.
In March i was announced that Rosie O' Donnell's talk show The Rosie Show had been axed by the network after only six months.
It debuted with 500,000 viewers but within days fell to half of that
- Oprah.com attracted 5.1million unique users in January 2011 when her daytime chat show was still being aired. But by July it was half that number at 2.4million, according to figures from comScore.
- At the end of last year, O Magazine's circulation was 2.4million, but it has steadily fallen since then and is expected to be around 1.9million by the summer.
- OWN premiered on January 1, 2011, to an average of 505,000 viewers. One month later ratings plummeted to an average of just 135,000 with only 30 per cent of those viewers in the targeted demographic of women ages 25 to 54.
- The Rosie Show debuted on OWN with 497,000 viewers.Within a week the ratings plummeted to 200,000 per episode.
It has been the kiss of death for Oprah's tv channel because of her political militancy supporting Obama. She is another victim of the Obamas' inverted Midas touch. Two of Michelle's favorite designers also went bankrupt.

25 Statistics About The U.S. Economy Barack Obama Does Not Want You To Know
April 30, 2012 9:49 Author: The American Dream
The human capacity for self-delusion truly is remarkable. Most people out there end up believing exactly what they want to believe even when the truth is staring them right in the face. Take the U.S. economy for example. Barack Obama wants to believe that his policies have worked and that the U.S. economy is improving. So that is what he is telling the American people. The mainstream media wants to believe that Barack Obama is a good president and that his policies make sense and so they are reporting that we are experiencing an economic recovery. A very large segment of the U.S. population still fully supports Barack Obama and they want to believe that the economy is getting better so they are buying the propaganda that the mainstream media is feeding them. But is the U.S. economy really improving? The truth is that it is not. The rate of employment among working age Americans is exactly where it was two years ago and household incomes have actually gone down while Obama has been president. Home ownership levels and home prices continue to decline. Meanwhile, food and gasoline continue to become even more expensive. The percentage of Americans that are dependent on the government is at an all-time record high and the U.S. national debt has risen by more than 5 trillion dollars under Obama. We simply have not seen the type of economic recovery that we have seen after every other economic recession since World War II.
The horrible statistics about the U.S. economy that you are about to read are not talked about much by the mainstream media. They would rather be “positive” and “upbeat” about the direction that things are headed.
But lying to the American people is not going to help them. If you are speeding in a car toward a 500 foot cliff, you don’t need someone to cheer you on. Instead, you need someone to slam on the brakes.
The cold, hard reality of the matter is that the U.S. economy is in far worse shape than it was four or five years ago.
We have never come close to recovering from the last recession and another one will be here soon.
The following are 25 horrible statistics about the U.S. economy that Barack Obama does not want you to know….
#1 The percentage of Americans that own homes is dropping rapidly. According to Gallup, the current level of homeownership in the United States is the lowest that Gallup has ever measured.
#2 Home prices in the U.S. continue to fall like a rock as well. They have declined for six months in a row and are now down a total of 35 percent from the peak of the housing bubble. The last time that home prices in the United States were this low was back in 2002.
#3 Last year, an astounding 53 percent of all U.S. college graduates under the age of 25 were either unemployed or underemployed.
#4 Back in 2007, about 10 percent of all unemployed Americans had been out of work for 52 weeks or longer. Today, that number is above 30 percent.
#5 When Barack Obama first became president, the number of “long-term unemployed workers” in the United States was 2.6 million. Today, it is 5.3 million.
Publicado: 05-07-2012 04:30 PM
#6 The average duration of unemployment in the United States is about three times as long as it was back in the year 2000.
#7 Despite what the mainstream media would have us to believe, the truth is that the percentage of working age Americans that are employed is not increasing. Back in March 2010, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were employed. In March 2011, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were employed. In March 2012, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were employed. So how can Barack Obama and the mainstream media claim that the employment situation in the United States is getting better? The employment rate is still essentially exactly where it was when the last recession supposedly ended.
#8 Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs.
#9 In 1962, 28 percent of all jobs in America were manufacturing jobs. In 2011, only 9 percent of all jobs in America were manufacturing jobs.
#10 In some areas of Detroit, Michigan you can buy a three bedroom home for just $500.
#11 According to one recent survey, approximately one-third of all Americans are not paying their bills on time at this point.
#12 Since Barack Obama entered the White House, the price of gasoline has risen by more than 100 percent.
#13 The student loan debt bubble continues to expand at a very frightening pace. Recently it was announced that total student loan debt in the United States has passed the one trillion dollar mark.
#14 Incredibly, one out of every four jobs in the United States pays $10 an hour or less at this point.
#15 Household incomes all over the United States continue to fall. After adjusting for inflation, median household income in America has declined by 7.8 percent since December 2007.
#16 Over the past several decades, government dependence has risen to unprecedented heights in the United States. The following is how I described the explosive growth of social welfare benefits in one recent article….
Back in 1960, social welfare benefits made up approximately 10 percent of all salaries and wages. In the year 2000, social welfare benefits made up approximately 21 percent of all salaries and wages. Today, social welfare benefits make up approximately 35 percent of all salaries and wages.
#17 In November 2008, 30.8 million Americans were on food stamps. Today, more than 46 millionAmericans are on food stamps.
#18 Right now, more than 25 percent of all American children are on food stamps.
#19 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, today 49 percent of all Americans live in a home that receives some form of benefits from the federal government.
#20 Over the next 75 years, Medicare is facing unfunded liabilities of more than 38 trillion dollars. That comes to $328,404 for each and every household in the United States.
#21 During the first quarter of 2012, U.S. public debt rose by 359.1 billion dollars. U.S. GDP only rose by 142.4 billion dollars.
#22 At this point, the U.S. national debt is rising by more than 2 million dollars every single minute.
#23 The U.S. national debt has risen by more than 5 trillion dollars since the day that Barack Obama first took office. In a little more than 3 years Obama has added more to the national debt than the first 41 presidents combined.
Publicado: 05-07-2012 04:35 PM
#24 The Federal Reserve bought up approximately 61 percent of all government debt issued by the U.S. Treasury Department during 2011.
#25 The Federal Reserve continues to systematically destroy the value of the U.S. dollar. Since 1970, the U.S. dollar has lost more than 83 percent of its value.
But the horrible economic statistics only tell part of the story.
In communities all over America there is a feeling that something fundamental has changed. Businesses that have been around for generations are shutting their doors and there is a lot of fear in the air. The following is a brief excerpt from a recent interview with Richard Yamarone, the senior economist at Bloomberg Brief….
You have to listen to what the small businesses are telling you and right now they are telling you, ‘Hey, I’m the head of a 3rd or 4th generation, 75 or 100 year old business, and I’ve got to shut the doors’ or ‘I’ve got to let people go. And if I’m hiring anybody back, it’s only on a temporary basis.’
Sometimes they do this through a hiring firm so that they can sidestep paying unemployment benefit insurance. So that’s what’s really going on at the grassroots level of the economy. Very, very, grossly different from what you’re seeing in some of these numbers coming out in earnings releases.”
All over the country, millions of hard working Americans are desperately looking for work. They have been told that “the recession is over”, but they are still finding it incredibly difficult to find anyone that will hire them. The following example is from a recent CNN article….
Joann Cotton, a 54-year-old Columbus, Mississippi, resident, was one of those faces of poverty we met on the tour. Unemployed for three years, Joann has gone from making “$60,000 a year to less than $15,000 overnight.” Her husband is disabled and dependent on medicines the couple can no longer afford. They rely on food stamps, which, Joann says, “is depressing as hell.”
Receiving government aid, however, has not been as depressing as her job search. Joann says she has applied for at least 300 jobs. Even though she can barely afford gas, she drives to the interviews only to learn that the employers want to hire younger candidates at low wages.
The experiences have taken a toll: “I’ve aged 10 years in the three years that I’ve been looking for a job,” Joann told us. “I want to get a job so I can just relax and exhale … but I can’t. After a while you just give up.”
Meanwhile, Barack Obama and his family continue to live the high life at the expense of the U.S. taxpayer.
Even many Democrats are starting to get very upset about this. The following is from a recent article by Paul Bedard….
Blue collar Democratic voters, stuck taking depressing “staycations” because they can’t afford gas and hotels, are resentful of the first family’s 17 lavish vacations around the world and don’t want their tax dollars paying for the Obamas’ holidays, according to a new analysis of swing voters.
It simply is not appropriate for the Obamas to be spending millions upon millions upon millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars on luxury vacations when so many Americans are deeply suffering.
But Barack Obama does not want you to know about any of this stuff.
He just wants you to buy his empty propaganda one more time so that he can continue to occupy the White House for another four years.

PLEASE VIEW THIS..AND SEND IT TO FRIENDS...

A couple of San Antonio doctors have responded with an effective ad to counter this injustice. See the ad produced by Drs Jane Hughes and Kris Held
If you like their ad, please forward widely.
