As many of you know, last week my dear friend Dori was laid to rest after her 16- month battle with brain cancer…and you know of her family’s battles through the nightmare of the health care fiasco known as ObamaCare. The battle is over for Dori but it has just begun for the rest of us.
And that battle begins with us knowing that ObamaCare is a LIE…NO other way to say it. It is NOT health care nor is it affordable as its actual name…The Affordable Care Act (ACA)…claims it to be. ObamaCare from its inception to its roll out to its subsequent implementation is NOTHING but one big scam to ‘insure’, if you will, the ‘sponges’ of our society so they stay in the voting pocket of the Democratic party and NOTHING else.
Obama loves to claim that to date more than eight million Americans have signed up for health insurance through the exchanges, but the truth is more like eight million Americans have perused the Healthcare.gov website and put something into their shopping cart, but have NOT paid that all-important first premium…thus denying the program the dollars needed to keep ObamaCare afloat. And Obama knew this would happen for he knows…and has always known…ObamaCare’s inherent flaws.
The Republican primary for the Senate seat of the retiring Saxby Chambliss is heating up. No fewer than seven candidates are vying for the opportunity to represent Georgia Republicans against the presumed Democratic nominee, Michelle Nunn, daughter of longtime Georgia senator, Sam Nunn. Without a strong GOP frontrunner, the general election is considered a tossup by some analysts.
Recent polls show businessman David Perdue with a small lead over the other candidates. Perdue, a native of Macon and a graduate of Georgia Tech, is a management consultant and has served as an officer at several well known corporations including Reebok and Dollar General. He has two sons and two grandsons and currently lives in St. Simon’s.
On Tuesday, Campus Reform posted audio of Brent Terry, a professor at Eastern Connecticut State University, smearing Republicans in his classroom, castigating them as evil, and falsely implying they would bring slavery back.
They’re also, in his warped point of view, greedy racists who want to suppress the vote of anyone who might vote liberal. It’s all a pack of lies, but he’s a liberal, and therefore unable to tell truth from fiction.
“It is difficult to look at a map of the world these days and find places where the Obama foreign policy has unmistakably made things better.” So said Brit Hume of Fox News Channel last night. Lest charges be leveled that Hume, one of the most fair-minded reporters around, is partisan, it should be pointed out that Obama’s foreign policy approval rating has one of the largest negative gaps, 13.5%, of any barometer of his presidency. And for good reason: The “Obama Doctrine” — if it can be called that with a straight face — has consisted of unenforced red lines (think Syria, Russia), missed opportunities (think Arab Spring), and unilateral retreat (think Iraq, Afghanistan). No wonder none of the crew on NBC’s “Meet the Press” batted an eyelash when the New York Times’s David Brooks said that Obama has a “manhood problem in the Middle East.”
After the Bureau of Land Management ceased their cattle-confiscation operations against the Bundy ranch in Nevada, a number of liberals expressed disappointment and anger, apparently saddened by the lack of bloodshed meted out by federal agents.
Now, some have taken to Twitter, calling for drone strikes against the Bundy ranch, despite the fact that such a strike would kill innocent women and children:
A planned appearance by Michelle Obama has drawn criticism from the students and parents of a Kansas high school. Obama was scheduled to be the guest speaker at a Topeka high school graduation ceremony.
Obama’s appearance, set for May 17, at the Topeka high school was planned to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court case, Brown vs. Board of Education. The case was brought against Topeka, Kansas, by a group of African American parents.
It’s hard to pick out the single most offensive thing about an ad run by a Seattle restaurant on Easter Sunday to promote its so-called “Burger of the Gods.” Is it the speech bubble that has the Jesus saying, “When I get back, all I want is the burger of the gods”? Or is the fact that the Son of God is holding a lit blunt, which is presumably intended to answer the question “What would Jesus smoke?”
According to Seattle station KOMO, the explanation for the joint offered up John Schmidt, owner of Lunchbox Laboratory, is that Easter Sunday this year fell on April 20, or 4/20. In pop culture, “420” is a term for smoking marijuana. As for the burger Jesus is gazing at adoringly in the cartoonlike ad? Says Schmidt in the video report here:
This is not about Jesus; it’s about the burger of the gods. It’s an actual burger that we have.
“You stand on the brink of making a choice that will define your legacy on one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced — climate change…” - Former President Jimmy Carter
Well leave it to the second worst president in U.S. history to suck up to the worst president in U.S. history as last week Jimmy Carter, together with a group of nine Nobel Peace Laureates… including South Africa’s Desmond Tutu…sent a single letter through the Nobel Women’s Initiative to both Obama and John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry urging them to reject the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline… TransCanada’s long-delayed $5.5-billion project…on the grounds that it would add to climate change concerns and other environmental issues.
But the truth is that the pipeline would NOT negatively affect anything…for it would NOT contribute to greenhouse gasses nor would it contribute to global warning simply because there is NO such thing. (So-called global warming and global cooling are naturally occurring weather cycles that have occurred since the Earth began and will continue until the Earth is NO more.) Continue reading →
Fresh off a temporary loss at the Bundy ranch, a document from the Bureau of Land Management appears which appears to signal a whole new round of land grabs and changing designations of federal lands.
Once their plan is complete, Obama would be free to put the land to any use he wants. In many cases these public lands will become inaccessible to the public. The memo details ways they can take control of these lands without the approval of congress. Continue reading →
