A comment was aimed at me the other day beginning with the words, “You republicans …….!” Some people just do not get it at all. It is no longer about Republican versus Democrat. It is about the destruction of America!
I am not a Republican although I was for a period of time. The Republican Party has let me down too many times now. Can you tell me what the Republican Party stands for? I can! It stands for nothing. They make promises to constituents to get elected and then cave on those same issues at the slightest pressure from the White House, the Democrats, or the press. And, they do this despite having been given a majority in both Houses of Congress by the voters. So either they suffer from completely deflated balls or they are RINOS. It really doesn’t matter at this point. I know there are a few truly conservative Republicans trying to do something to protect Americans but they are hamstrung and attacked by their own party. This is why I am no longer a Republican.
I can certainly see what the Democratic Party stands for today. It is obvious if you watch the news. The current Democratic Party stands for Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts, making terrible deals with our enemies while abandoning our allies, giving illegal aliens free rein to steal from, rape and murder American citizens. You think Trump is wrong? He may not be the candidate of choice for me, but at least he speaks the truth. The murder of Kathryn Steinle on the Embarcadero in San Francisco by an illegal alien is only the most recent example of a crime committed by an illegal alien. Laura Wilkerson’s 18-year-old son was brutally tortured and murdered by a classmate he had offered a ride home. The classmate would have been one of Obama’s “Dreamers.”
During testimony before the Congressional Judiciary Committee by parents of victims and Texas State Officials, it was revealed that illegal aliens have been involved in thousands of crimes in Texas alone, including nearly 3,000 homicides. According to the analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, illegal aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults. The report describes an alien crime wave of staggering proportions exacerbated by federal officials unwilling to enforce immigration laws. The Texas DPS report says well over 100,000 individual criminal aliens have been booked into Texas jails.
Let’s see. In light of this illegal alien crime wave and increasing terrorist attacks on American soil, the Democratic Party stands for disarming law-abiding American citizens. They also stand for ignoring the rule of law and dismantling or circumventing the U.S. Constitution, dismantling our military, destroying our economy while fudging unemployment numbers, and subjecting U.S. Citizens to being ruled by the United Nations.
As a friend of mine posted:
Can we stop calling those on the far left liberals and progressives? Nice sounding terms but their actual political platform is Statism and Totalitarianism. Obsessed with “correct thought” and “Correct speech”, [and] the sacrifice of individual choice to ideological “experts”. In no way is this thinking liberal or progressive. It is very regressive, the exact same policies were the foundation of Statist and Totalitarian regimes from Mao to Stalin, Mussolini and Hitler. Identity politics, class warfare, racial politics, statistical law making, central planning, there is no correlation between these ideas and classical liberalism, or any of the founding documents of this country. These factors were the dominant trends that made people leave Europe and establish a country based on sovereign States, individual liberty and property rights. Our “liberals” fight against State sovereignty, individual liberty and individual property rights. And our population is apparently too poorly educated to understand our own history.
I thought this was funny and had to share! Just a little humor from The People’s Cube:
According to unnamed reliable sources, the White House is set to announce the formation of the Federal Bureau of “Quotations” to oversee media citations of all official White House announcements and denials of previous announcements.
In future, all media citations must fit within strictly defined classifications: unnamed, well-placed, unnamed well-placed, un-quoted, official, unofficial, official unnamed, official un-quoted, official well-placed, reliable, unnamed reliable, well-placed reliable, official unnamed well-placed, and unofficial un-quoted unnamed well-placed reliable.
The Federal Bureau of “Quotations” has set up a website to help the media and the reading public understand what the new classifications mean. An official unnamed well-placed reliable source said the site will be user-friendly, featuring a cute feline mascot named Miss Information to lead readers through the many details.
An unnamed well-placed un-quoted official didn’t clarify whether, when spoken, the new entity should be pronounced as “Bureau of quote Quotations unquote” or simply stated as “Bureau of Quotations” with air quotes given at the appropriate moment. A second well-placed reliable source claimed air quotes should not be used so as not to offend the eye-hand-coordination-challenged.
When contacted, a third unofficial un-quoted unnamed well-placed reliable source denied everything, but confirmed multiple job openings at the Bureau’s community-based Quotations Correctional facilities to help maintain safe, cost-efficient, and secure environment for media professionals in need of self-improvement opportunities offered to them by dedicated Quotations Correctional Officers.
A catchy new phrase I heard Hallerin Hilton Hill use on the radio this morning … “Lap-dogs don’t hunt!” I like it. It fits so nicely in the discussion of today’s political nonsense! A fine example of this is the drive-by American news media. They don’t “hunt” for facts and report “real” news. They simply sit in Obama’s lap and feed us the “approved” left-wing spin lines as news headlines! This is how $1 trillion in new taxes gets reported by Politico as $1 trillion in new revenue! Revenue implies some kind of sales. Exactly what is the Obama administration selling us? When the federal government takes more of the money I earned (either directly or an indirectly) and spends it the way that they see fit; that is not “revenue” … that is a tax. I am not opposed to paying my “fair share” … but the federal government wastes way to much of it. These are the same folks who are spending $1.5 million to fund a study to see why so many lesbians are fat! Well, just maybe … it is because they eat too much! Before the Obama administration raises taxes on me … they better clean up their spending habits! I do not make over $250,000 per year, but my taxes have already gone up!
Left-wing liberals want us all to become good little lap-dogs. Liberal educators love to pay lip service to the idea of developing “critical thinking skills” in our young students today. It sounds so catchy and impressive when they use it to try and persuade us … doesn’t it? But what is the real truth? Why do you need critical thinking skills? Well, I would say,”to view the choices around you, weigh the pros and cons, and then make an intelligent decision based on that information.” This would, however, imply that you do not need a “law” or a “ban” to force you to make the right choice. You make the choice freely of your own volition … and then … you accept the ramifications of that choice! That is “critical thinking” and that is “freedom.”
If our “liberal educators” actually tought “critical thinking skills” there would be no need for laws banning “big gulp” soft drinks or ear buds. Nanny Bloomberg, like Barack Obama, thinks he knows what’s best for you! So, in his mind … you really and truly do not need critical thinking skills at all; and by extension … freedom of choice should, therefore, be benevolently taken away! Folks, this is … simply put … totalitarianism!! Without choices … there is no Freedom!
They say one thing publicly … but behind closed doors, they really do something else! Obama does this repeatedly … over and over … ad nauseum! Cool Aid drinkers don’t care about it! Low knowledge voters don’t know about it! Liberal elitists embrace it!
Here is a PRIME EXAMPLE: Publicly … liberals loudly proclaim for all to hear,”Our children need to develop critical thinking skills!” This gets them elected! But once they are in office you actually get,”Americans aren’t smart enough to make decisions for themselves … so we are banning “64-0unce soda pops, ear buds, and magazines that hold over 8 rounds!” Folks, if someone hands you a 55-gallon diet coke and a straw … and you actually drink it … you deserve exactly what you get … and you do not then, now, or ever … have the right to take away my freedom of choice because you drank it!
I think this is also why the NEA has led the charge in dumbing down our educational system while fighting tooth and nail against charter schools, school vouchers programs, home schooling, or anything that would allow parents to get their children out of their left-wing brainwashing mills and into a real school where “critical thinking” is actually taught! You know, a school where it is not illegal to say the Pledge of Allegiance, sing the National Anthem, or teach evolution while at the same time … horror of horrors … mention God!! A school where reading, writing, and arithmetic take a little more precedence than socialist brainwashing, exploring alternative life-styles, providing morning-after pills, or learning the proper technique for putting a condom on a banana!
Nanny Bloomberg intends to spend lots of time fighting the ruling that halted his “soda pop” ban; because after all, New York City has no other really pressing concerns. It is much more important to waste a lot of taxpayer money on “soda pop” judicial proceedings, than to spend more time trying to end serious problems like, oh, say, gangs, rapes, drugs, and violence in New York City! Oh Wait … my bad … New York City doesn’t have THOSE problems because they have those really strict gun laws! I forgot!! Anyway, we should a be good little “lap-dogs” and live our lives according to Bloomberg’s, or Obama’s, commands. And maybe Bloomberg can really do some good for New Yorker’s … he could ban rape!
Yes indeed! Good little lap-dogs dote so on their masters,! They are so happy with the little scraps of food they receive from the table, and squirm with pure glee when they receive that little “pat on the head.” We should all be good little lap dogs … because good little lap-dogs would never wonder:
Why the U.S. Marines have no money for training because of Sequestration, but the Dept of Homeland Security has an open purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition!
Why the White House is closed to school children’s tours, but Obama can sell presidential access for $500,000 a visit?
Why the administration can spend $1.5 million of my tax dollars to “learn” why so many lesbians are fat … and then say, with a straight face, they need to raise taxes?
Why the Royal Family cost British taxpayers about $60 million for expenses last year, while the Obama family cost American tax payers $1.4 billion for expenses?
Where was Obama “really,” … when Americans, including a U.S. Ambassador, were being murdered during an Al Qaeda terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya?
Where are all the millions in tax dollars Obama gave to his “bundling buddies” in the so-called “green energy” stimulus scandal? Still in their grubby little “bankrupt” pockets?
Why “waterboarding” captured terrorists to stop future terrorist attacks is horrific, but using drones to assassinate Americans on Obama’s personal hit list is fine and dandy?
How idiots like Congresswoman Diane Feinstein (who thinks it is legal to hunt humans … but is oh so very concerned with how many shots you actually get to kill them) can even get elected?
Why such a win-win for the U.S. economy (jobs, friendly neighbor oil supplier, tax revenue) as the Key Stone Pipeline is still being blocked by Obama?
Why Eric Holder is STILL in office after the ATF provided Mexican Drug Lords with more than 100 “assault weapons” that were used to commit brutal crimes including the murder of American Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and 16 young people attending a party in a residential area of Ciudad Juárez in January of 2010.
Why Obama shielded Eric Holder behind “executive privilege” even though neither Obama nor Holder “knew anything about it?”
Yes! Be a good little lap-dog and simply ignore the massive volume of dirty deals, influence peddling, shadow-government Czars, lawlessness, scandals, imperial decrees, and outright violations of the Constitution perpetrated by the Obama administration!
Way too many Cool Aid drinkers are willing close their eyes, sit, beg, get patted on the head, rollover, and trade their freedom and American heritage for a few scraps from the Obama/Bloomberg table! Well sorry folks … not me!
Unless concerned Americans take action, the Obama administration, left-wing democrats, and certain RINOs intend to continue operating a corrupt, self-serving, greedy, bloated government … regardless of the law, the U.S. Constitution , or the will of the American taxpayers! Liberty, Freedom, and the greatest nation on earth will be fundamentally transformed into a pseudo-communist state with the progressive/leftist elites in charge of us all!
Last Tuesday, the White House announced that it was canceling all public tours of the president’s home because of … wait for it … the sequester spending cuts.
“Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013 until further notice. Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule affected tours,” the White House said in an email.
You can, of course, reschedule your WH tour for a small fee of $500,000!
Seriously folks, how freaking stupid and/or gullible do you have to be to actually believe that the “Sequestration” has forced cancellation of WH tours? I mean, critically thinking Americans should realize that Obama really cancelled the WH tours over rumors that Bob Woodward was going to take one to try and get close enough to ask him a REAL question.
ABC News has reported that cancelling the WH tours is saving the Secret Service $74,00 a week. How exactly is that? Are the Secret Service Agents guarding the WH during tours being given furloughs? Are they on leave without pay? Are they being laid off? Or are they just being re-assigned to other duties and therefore … still receiving pay and benefits? Where is this “supposed” savings? Enquiring minds want to know! Obama is simply throwing a petulant, child-like temper tantrum and his actions dishonor both the Office of the President and the White House! I mean, come on now! Since the Anointed One now charges $500,000 per “presidential” audience, perhaps he could do his “fair share” and help cover the WH tours? He could set the example for the rest of the nation!! But no, instead he has kicked “We the People” right out of OUR house!
So let’s get this right! We can afford to:
Pay for Obama’s endless golf games with folks like Tiger Woods
Give Pakistan $37 million for trade
Give the TSA $50 million for new uniforms
Give Egypt’s new terrororist supporting government let by radical Islamist Mohammed Morsi $1.55 billion annually (i.e., $250 million in economic aid and $1.3 billion in military aid … 20 F-16s, Abrams Tanks, etc.)
Give the Obama family $1.4 billion in tax payer money for “expenses” in 2012 (In contrast, the British tax payers spent $57.8 million on the Royal Family last year).
Obama is making Washington, D.C. and the White House the laughing stock of the nation! By shutting down WH tours, our petulant little Messiah, Barrack Hussein Obama, is simply proving what many Americans have already come to understand … that all Washington is good for these days … is serving as a tacky tourist attraction.
Yesterday, Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward claimed that, because he is standing by his reports that sequestration was, in fact, the brainchild of the Obama White House, that it was personally approved by Obama, and that Obama’s pushing for tax increases now to somehow resolve the laughable sequestration impasse is simply again kicking the can down the road, he has been threatened by “a very senior person” in the White House. Bob Woodward revealed this “Obama Administration” threat during an interview on CNN’s Situation Room yesterday morning.
It seems that Woodward had also told two Politico reporters the very same thing … also yesterday, and that they appear to have “sat” on the story until this evening when the CNN interview finally forced their hand. Somehow, I am not very surprised by this. We do know that most of the left-wing drive-by-medial are Obama worshippers and would blindly follow him anywhere … like rats on a sinking ship!
BOLDUAN: What do you make of the White House’s response to your article?
WOODWARD: Well, I think they’re confused. I think they’ve got this idea. I mean, they put out these long talking points and said, see, even Woodward’s book reports that Speaker Boehner said, let’s get $600 billion over ten years in revenue in the super committee. That’s exactly right. That’s not the sequester. And they’ve said – they have,as you know, I said, get somebody from the White House here, and we’ll debate.
BLITZER: We invited the White House to send someone here, to debate this issue with you, and they declined.
WOODWARD: Why? Why? Because it’s irrefutable; that’s exactly what happened. I’m not saying this is a moving of the goalposts that was some criminal act or something like that, I’m just saying, that’s –
… BLITZER: You’re used to this kind of stuff, but share with our viewers what’s going on between you and the White House.
WOODWARD: Well, they’re not happy at all, and some people kind of, you know, said, look, we don’t see eye to eye on this. They never really said, though – afterwards, they’ve said that this is factually wrong, and they – and it was said to me in an e-mail by a top –
BLITZER: What was said? Yes.
WOODWARD: It was said very clearly, you will regret doing this.
BLITZER: Who sent that e-mail to you?
WOODWARD: Well, I’m not going to say.
BLITZER: Was it a senior person at the White House?
WOODWARD: A very senior person. And just as a matter – I mean, it makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, you’re going to regret doing something that you believe in. And even though we don’t look at it that way, you do look at it that way. And I think if Barack Obama knew that was part of the communication’s strategy – let’s hope it’s not a strategy, but it’s a tactic that somebody’s employed, and said, look, we don’t go around trying to say to reporters, if you, in an honest way, present something we don’t like, that, you know, you’re going to regret this. And just – it’s Mickey Mouse.
… BOLDUAN: That line clearly has touched a nerve with folks at the White House. There’s no question about that.
I do think Woodward is being very gracious (or naive) when he says, “let’s hope it’s not a strategy.” . This same strategy has been used in “Chicago” politics for decades. It is nothing new. And, Obama is, after all, a product of Saul Alinsky’s left-wing ideology and the corrupt Chicago political machine. He has proven to be very adept at strong-arm, character assassination-type politics. I would ask Bob Woodward … when have Obama’s lap-dog media darlings and other left-wing, progressive activists not employed such a strategy?
Already, shivering-legged, left-wing progressive media apparatchiks like Politico’s Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen are labeling Woodward with a newly-minted uncomplimentary term, “unlikely darling of the right wing.” In truth, he is really nothing of the sort. All he’s doing is reiterating a truth that many Americans already know … but are afraid to stand up and say; either because they are suckling at the Obama administration’s bloated teats, or are afraid of the possible consequences, or of engendering the displeasure of His Imperial Majesty. No need to even mention the mindless Cool Aid drinkers. We know where they grovel.
But I digress! Back to the “unbiased” media. The “unbiased” Politico pair received the following information from Bob Woodward yesterday and it seems they held on to it until 8:00 p.m. last night when CNN’s reporting the story forced their hand:
Bob Woodward called a senior White House official last week to tell him that in a piece in that weekend’s Washington Post, he was going to question President Barack Obama’s account of how sequestration came about – and got a major-league brushback. The Obama aide “yelled at me for about a half hour,” Woodward told us in an hour-long interview yesterday around the Georgetown dining room table where so many generations of Washington’s powerful have spilled their secrets.
Digging into one of his famous folders, Woodward said the tirade was followed by a page-long email from the aide, one of the four or five administration officials most closely involved in the fiscal negotiations with the Hill. “I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today,” the official typed. “You’re focusing on a few specific trees that give a very wrong impression of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here. … I think you will regret staking out that claim.”
Woodward repeated the last sentence, making clear he saw it as a veiled threat. “‘You’ll regret.’ Come on,” he said. “I think if Obama himself saw the way they’re dealing with some of this, he would say, ‘Whoa, we don’t tell any reporter ‘you’re going to regret challenging us.'”
In all this, there is one thing that the Obama administration may have succeeded in actually doing. They may have convinced many Americans that it was a real mistake re-electing him to office. As Obama’s left-wing blundering continues … even the Cool Aid drinkers might slowly begin to rise from their collective fog and realize the damage being done to this great country. One can only hope!
New York: In New York State, where they already have lots of gun control laws and law-abiding citizens are already effectively rendered defenseless; it seems criminals actually do get guns … dare I say it … ILLEGALLY! And then, they actually commit crimes with them! And … worse yet … they shoot police officers (like the 3 officers shot in two separate shooting incidents last night) with them! So progressives want to create even MORE defenseless law-abiding citizens … by passing still more laws for criminals to ignore?
~You can’t fix stupid!
Nearly 30,000 New Laws in 2012: It seems that the American Sheeple are in desperate need of regulation! With the popular re-election of President Barack Obama, the Democratic Party has been able to harness the feverish desires of the American Sheeple for even greater implementation of Progressive doctrine. In the first year of his Presidency, Obama’s administration enacted 40,697 laws, not counting the thousands of helpful and necessary regulations enacted through his Czars and various administrative organs of the State.
These regulations and laws serve to free the American Sheeple from having to worry about making bad decisions that might actually have consequences. By blindly following the regulations set forth by the Obama administration, American Sheeple will not have to be concerned about making any decisions that prove to be inconvenient … or prevent them from receiving their fair share of other people’s money.
More regulation means safety and security, and security is the only real kind of prosperity that is worth having. The Obama government guarantees prosperity for all its citizens through the equitable redistribution of the hard-working man’s earned wealth to those who simply prefer to go on the public dole.
With so many new laws, 2013 is bound to be a year of great prosperity! President Barack Obama is so confident in his new prosperity plan that he has returned to his estate in Hawaii for the second time in a month, signaling his confidence that America is blindly marching forward towards Socialism without any real impediment or opposition.

I made a stop on The Blaze.com today and a headline caught my attention.
It seems that in a conversation with Glenn Beck, Charles Woods, the grieving father of one of the former Navy SEALs killed in the spontaneous “man-caused disaster” at the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya stated that our enlightened leader, President Barack Obama, couldn’t even look him in the eyes; and that good old Uncle Joe was very disrespectful during the ceremony when his son’s body returned to America. Woods also stated that the White House’s story about the attack simply doesn’t pass the smell test.
Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, called into “The Glenn Beck Program” on The Blaze TV Thursday and recounted his interactions with the president, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden at the ceremony for the Libya victims at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. He told host Glenn Beck that what they told him, coupled with new reports that indicate the Obama administration knew very good and well, almost immediately, that a terrorist attack was occurring in Benghazi, make him certain that the American people are not getting the whole truth.
Vice President Biden, as he has become notoriously famous for, made a wildly inappropriate comment to the father who had just lost his hero son. Charles Woods said that Joe Biden came over to his family and asked in a “loud and boisterous” voice, “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?” Good old Uncle Joe!
The grieving father also described his brief encounter with President Obama during the ceremony for the Libya victims.
“When he finally came over to where we were, I could tell that he was rather conflicted … like a person who was not at peace with himself,” Woods said. “Shaking hands with him, quite frankly, was like shaking hands with a dead fish. His face was pointed towards me but he would not look me in the eye, his eyes were over my shoulder.”
“I could tell that he was not sorry,” Woods added. “He had no remorse.”
Beck said he wanted to give the president “the benefit of the doubt,” and asked Woods how he could be sure that Obama wasn’t just uncomfortable or nervous during their conversation. Woods replied that it was very evident from Obama’s “demeanor.”
Hillary Clinton’s “comforting words” to Woods raised still more questions about the White House’s cover-up (oops … I mean … official) story on the Benghazi attack, which has been, shall we say … extremely inconsistent at best.
After apologizing for his loss, Woods said Clinton assured him that the U.S. would “make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.” Leave it to those liberal democrats to find a handy scapegoat to throw under the bus!! Well, a, least they aren’t trying to blame ATMs, Monarch Butterflies, or George Bush … least-wise, not yet anyway!
Now … that trio is a real class act. I think maybe George W. Bush had a pretty apt phrase for describing the Obama, Biden, and Clinton trio to a “T” … an axis of evil!
Can you image the sanctimonious, selective liberal outrage we would have been subjected to had George W. Bush, a conservative like Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, or pretty much any republican had misspoken and called Nazi death camps in Poland … Polish death camps? The liberal press would have wasted no time in excoriating the transgressor as a stupid, right-wing, nazi-loving, drooling, anti-woman, old-people killing, drunken, hate mongering neocon with latent heterosexual and homicidal tendencies, etc.! I mean Bill Maher would have had material for at least a month’s worth of left-wing verbal diarrhea!
However, since it was the anointed-one, Barack Obama, who committed the gaff …. he simply “misspoke.”
All Americans … democratic and republican … liberal and conservative … want access to affordable, quality healthcare. The problem with Obamacare is that it cannot and will not give us that; and in truth … it was never designed to. Obamacare was never intended to reduce healthcare costs, and in act, it will increase healthcare cost substantially. Obamacare was designed to force all Americans to have government approved health insurance by 2014, or be fined by their government. Which, despite claims to the contrary by the Washington Post, amounts to a government take over of healthcare. That is why Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and company, rushed to have it passed before it was read and understood, and before anyone really knew what was hidden in it. Two years ago, the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) told America Obamacare would cost the U.S. taxpayers about $900 billion. It just recently revised that cost to be $1.8 trillion! Is anyone … besides the Cool Aid Drinkers … surprised by this?
It is incomprehensible to me how such an Obamanation of legislation could be passed without even trying a few simpler measure that have been discussed during previous years that could have helped lower healthcare costs in America … without created a huge new bumbling bureaucracy.
The liberal elites, such as Obama and his cronies, want to blame the private sector and capitalism for rising healthcare and premiums costs. They count on the fact that you will not do your homework and will simply accept their claim at face value. Why then, is it, that I can purchase auto insurance from an auto insurance company in Hawaii because they offer a better premium rate … but must by a health insurance policy from a company based in Tennessee? Why is the market closed off? Is this free market capitalism? No it is not! Then how can liberals truthfully blame free market capitalism? They cannot … unless you drank the Cool Aid!
The fact is that the federal government has no legal authority to regulate health insurance rates. Insurance, including health insurance, is regulated by the states. The McCarran-Ferguson Act, which preserves the principle of state regulation of insurance, was not amended by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the law under which the new rule on health insurance rates was issued. So what is going on here? With no regulatory authority at all, HHS is trying to bully or shame health insurers into reducing their rate increases. Again, the whole effort is an incredible exercise by Obama’s administration in power-grabbing!
The Heritage Founation lists 10 other negative outcomes from Obamacare:
New taxes, penalties, and fees will discourage businesses from growing, lowering economic growth by $706 billion and costing 800,000 jobs.
The Federal government will force the 18 million of the uninsured to go under Medicaid, while others must accept another government program. Despite this, millions will still remain uninsured.
Each year, $125 million will go towards subsidizing school-based health centers and programs to reduce teen pregnancy, with no requirement to reduce abortions. Parents won’t know what services their children will receive.
Half of those on Medicare Advantage will lose this coverage thank to rate increases.
Health care costs will rise thanks to $47 billion in new taxes on drug companies and medical device makers.
Nearly two-thirds of doctors are considering abandoning any kind of government-sponsored health care insurance, stating that regulations are too high and reimbursement too low.
By forcing States to accept federally-mandated health insurance, the Act violates States’ rights.
Small businesses, the drivers of new job growth, will be especially penalized by $52 billion in new taxes and new IRS reporting requirements.
Despite $500 billion in new taxes, Obamacare will increase the deficit by $500 billion over the next 10 years.
The simple reality is that Obamacare is a very poorly written law with vast consequences for all Americans. Obamacare’s so-called exchanges will ultimately increase insurance rates, tax American employers and threaten the viability of our private insurance market. Massive government subsidies will be required to keep ObamaCare afloat and that will require even more tax revenue. Obamacare will also simply create a massive new entitlement program that we, as a nation, cannot afford.
For me, as an American citizen, the Individual Mandate is the scariest part of the whole mess. If Obamacare stands, we as a nation have set the precedent for the government to force individuals into contracts with services providers for services they do not want. This does, in fact, violate the U.S. Constitution and is a big step down the pathway to tyranny. No we all know ho little the U.S. Constitution means to Obama, his cronies, and his Cool Aid drinking followers, but what about the rest of you Americans … are you going to just sit back and let him destroy this country and will you take a stand. This next election is critical. I now we all have our favorite candidate … but only one candidate can be the nominee! I lean to toward New Gingrich personally, but things are not looking to good for him right now. So will I go home and pout if Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, or Ron Paul get the nomination? Will I take my toys and go home? Nope … this election is way to important for such childish games. Any of the fielded republican candidates is a real measurable improvement over Barack Hussein Obama … and I will vote for any one of them to remove this domestic American enemy from office …. and in truth … I would not even have to hold my nose to do it!
Just when you thought you had heard it all, Obama reaches to disgusting new levels of “buck passing.” Obama paused on his re-election campaign disguised as an effort to promote his “revenue enhancement” program disguised as the American Jobs Act; long enough to blame George W. Bush for the $535 million Solyndra scandal. This is the lowest of the low. While those involved are called to testify before Congress and desperately point fingers at each other, two thoughts come to my mind:
If this administration (and yes, other past administrations) spent half as much time trying to be good stewards of the tax dollars they get from the American people as they do buying votes and furthering personal political careers, there would be no need to raise taxes or cut spending. This mess we find ourselves in is clearly the fault of career politicians seeking power and personal gain by rewarding “friends” and punishing “dissenters.” We need to return to the idea of “citizen-legislators” and good stewardship. Can you say “term limits?”
American tax payers want their $535 million back and those implicated in this “green power” scam brought up on charges. It has become clear that even before the government “stimulus” loan was made to Solyndra, officials at Solyndra knew their company was going belly up. In fact, they sent false “glowing progress reports” to the Obama administration even as they were keeping close tabs on their press coverage to block any bad publicity.
As House Republicans begin to investigate Solyndra’s stimulus loan scandal, theyhave looked at emails between the White House and Solyndra officials. WHile Obama had touted Solyndra as a “green jobs” success story thanks to a $535 million loan guarantee funded through the 2009 economic stimulus law, the emails show a different story. They show a clear interaction between Solyndra officials and the Obama administration surrounding Obama’s visit to the Bay Area, These emails included “corporate gig” job offers as well as efforts to limit press coverage to friendly media outlets and reporters in an attempt to generate positive press while squelching any possible negative press. It is also clear theat the OMB warned Obama to wait until they checked Solyndra out … due diligence! Obama would not wait … these were his cronies after all! Looks like Obama was also warned by the OMB That Solyndra would go belly up … the OMB even got the month and year right … September 2011! Obama, in typical Chicago-thug style politics ignored the OMB and pressured them into approving the loan.
Obama minion and DNC Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, recently confirmed my long-held belief that progressive-liberals live in a make-believe world of denial and fairy tales. Her asinine comment that the congressional seat held since 1923 (almost a century) by democrats is in “a very difficult district for Democrats,” should earn her the “dumb-ass” of the century award. Bob Turner’s victory is simply a solid rebuke to Obama, his leftist policies, and his sycophantic cronies. But progressive-liberals cannot see this fact, because they live in a socialist “dream” land where they are so much smarter than the rest of us and therefore, must take care of us. It looks like the democrats, in typical underhanded fashion, will now simply try use gerrymandering to “re-district” Bob Turner’s seat out of existence.
It does, however, look like the Republican party must be doing something right! Left-wing pundit, Keith Olbermann recently stated that the Republican party is now the leading terrorist organization in the Unites States! Yep! That’s right …. surpassing even law-abiding gun owners, military veterans, Bible-clutchers, and yes … even the Tea Party! Personally, I do not think I could find better company!! Al Qaeda and Hamas need to get busy … if they want progressive-liberal democrats to elevate their respective organizations from “trusted allies” back to “terrorist” status.
In other news, Michele Obama has taken it upon herself to teach us poor dumb Americans what to eat … while she, of course, dines on only the finest in tax payer provided cuisine. Michele Obama is certainly not doing “weight watchers!” While I agree that it is sad so many Americans are overweight … that is a matter of choice and personal responsibility and should not be another area of government intrusion into our lives. I actually have seen more and more of my neighbors out swimming, walking, and riding bikes … and they are doing it because they want to be healthier … not because of some government mandate.
Surprise, surprise! Obama has resurrected his “internet Snitch brigade.” Do you remember when Obama came under fire for encouraging his supporters to collect and report any “fishy” information on his White House web site link firstname.lastname@example.org. After widespread public outrage over his Administrations use of “useful idiot” minions to spy on their fellow Americans (a trick communist Russian dictators perfected), the White House quickly removed the e-snitch link from their Web site. It seems, however, that Obama’s creepy monitoring program (on his new campaign Web site www.AttackWatch.com) is back … just in time for his 2012 re-election campaign.
It is so sad it is almost funny. Obama insults, and pulls the rug out from under America’s greatest ally in the Middle East, Israel (the only stable democracy in the area); and supports Israel’s mortal enemies … terrorist groups like Hamas or the Muslim Brotherhood (who if they did not have the Jews to try to kill, would be trying to kill us or each other). Then on his AttackWatch site, claims Glenn Beck “twists the facts on Israel:”
Conservative pundit Glenn Beck added his voice to a growing collection of false allegations about the President’s record on Israel. “We’re talking a lot about Israel,” said Beck. “The President of the United States, I believe, has betrayed our last strong ally.”
Glenn Beck is simply stating his belief … a freedom we are all supposed to have under the U.S. Constitution! Most Americans seem to agree with the assessment. Look at the Jewish support for Bob Turner’s victory in last Tuesday’s special Congressional seat election in New York!
And where does the Obama camp get its “dirt” on Glenn Beck? From clear-thinking, fair and balanced George-Soros-funded progressive-liberal media outlets like MoveOn.org, Media Matters, and ThinkProgress.org! Hmmm! Who would have thunk it?
