Exactly what Barry "Almighty", and his cadre of corrupt Demcorats are attempting to perpetrate against America today was foretold to us back in the 1950s.
Friday, November 29, 2013
Please, PLEASE, don’t tell me that we’re actually going to be stupid enough to actually make this bonehead, Chris Christie, our nominee. Haven’t we learned anything from the last two elections? Apparently not, if we can have a recent national poll that would seem to indicate that Christie is, at least at this point in time, deemed to be our early frontrunner. This is, if he were to decide to jump into the race, for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. Am I the only here who sees this as being nothing short of completely insane?
And ya know, we Republican are not the only ones who seem to have lost out minds. Democrats are proving themselves to be as f*cked up as we Republicans, because these morons would actually favor ‘Slow Joe’ Biden, if that old battle-axe, Hitlery Clinton, decides against making yet another run for the White House. Man I gotta tell ya, our country could not be more screwed up if the best that the American people can do is to consider any of these misfits as being acceptable candidates, worthy of being our president.
So it is then that, according to a recent poll, twenty-four percent of Republicans and independents who took part in this poll said they would support Christie, and that’s up seven percentage points from a CNN poll taken in September. Back then, it was Christie and Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the House Budget chairman and the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee, who were virtually tied, with Christie at 17 percent and Ryan at 16 percent. But both of these dweebs are RINOs, and a RINOs can’t win!
But since then our buddy Ryan has since dropped to 11 percent and now comes in behind Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, at 13 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas garnered 10 percent in the survey, followed by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida at 9 percent, Texas Gov. Rick Perry at 7 percent, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, each at 6 percent. Personally, I could very easily support just about anyone in this group, except maybe Bush, over Christie. Haven’t we really had enough Bushes?
And what I’m quite sure is something that comes as no surprise in the fact that the poll indicates that Hitlery would easily be the overwhelming frontrunner in the race for the Democratic nomination, with 63 percent of Democrats and independents who lean towards the Democratic Party saying she would be their choice. ‘Slow Joe’ was a distant second at 12 percent, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (7 percent), Gov. Andrew Cuomo (5 percent), and two-term Gov. Martin O'Malley (2 percent). Now ain’t that a stellar little group?
Come on people, can’t we please do better than this? Can’t we at least, just this one time, bring ourselves to think about our country first? It would seem that, at least in recent years, the election of a president has been reduced to being nothing more than some weird kind of popularity contest. And where, exactly, has ‘that’ gotten us? Nowhere, but right in the crapper, that’s where. If clowns like these are really the best we can up with, then why even bother? Maybe we should just put America out of her misery.
Because when 2016 finally rolls around, and it’ll be here before you know it, does anyone seriously think that a Christie or a Hitlery or, God forbid, a Biden will actually be up to the challenge of governing whatever’s it is that will be left of our once proud and prosperous nation after eight years of Barry "Almighty"? Think about it, is a country that’s broke, not only financially, but spiritually and morally, as well as economically, really the legacy that we want to leave to our kids? I pray to God that we will come to our senses.
Look, in looking at our own lives, I really don’t think that we needed yet another poll to tell what I think most of us already knew, that a majority of Americans are becoming much more pessimistic about the state of our nation. But apparently someone did because it’s according to a recent poll we find that over half of the American people are now of the opinion that conditions in our country are only getting worse. And that would be, like I said, according to a yet another poll, with this one being conducted by CNN/ORC International poll and with results being released just today, of all days, the day after Thanksgiving.
This recent survey consisted of 843, we assume to be, adults, and it revealed that only 41 percent of Americans actually believe that things are going well. Meanwhile, there are 59 percent of us who now think that things are going rather badly, and are likely to get even worse before they improve, if they ever improve. Opinions, of course, vary with political affiliation, as well as between younger and older people. Because according to this poll it was 46 percent of those under age 50 who said things are going pretty well, while only 36 percent for those 50 and older seemed to think that the country is headed in the right direction.
And it would also seem that a majority of Americans also continue to be rather pessimistic about the economy. Thirty-nine percent believe the economy is still declining, and just 24 percent who believe that a recovery is actually occurring. Meanwhile, 36 percent said they do not believe there is a recovery going on, but still think conditions are becoming stable. No offense to any of those who can somehow come to the conclusion that there is an actual recovery going on, but just how stupid, or blind, can people be. Of course, now, the only thing that could be of any importance to many of them is the fact that Barry is black.
I’ve always tried to think of myself as being one of those ‘the glass-is-half-full’ kind of guys, but in this era of Barry "Almighty" it is become exceedingly more difficult to do so. I mean, let’s face it. We now have 11 Million fewer people in the nation’s workforce than we did when Barry first took office, nearly 50 Million Americans now on food stamps, Millions more on disability and at least 100 Million of our fellow citizens now receiving some form of government assistance. It’s a little difficult to remains optimistic in the face of all that Barry and his fellow Democrats have committed against this this country.
Add to that the wholesale destruction of the best healthcare system on the planet, again an act committed by Democrats, and it would seem that Americans don’t really have all that much to look forward to anymore. You know, parents used to be able feel comfortable in the knowledge that they would be leaving to their children a nation that was better than the one that they grew up in. But for most of us that’s simply no longer the case. The America I will leave behind for my daughter is a far cry from the same America I enjoyed when I was her age. If the last 5 years have shown us anything, it’s that ‘change’ is not always good.
I think it fair to say that "Hope and Change" ranks right up there with such things as "new and improved." How many of you have purchased a product, one that you have been purchasing for years, that now proudly proclaims itself to be new and improved, only to find out that while the packaging may be new, the product itself most certainly has not been improved. And along with that pronouncement, of course, also comes a much higher price. That is essentially what we got from Barry. His promise to "fundamentally transform" this country and only resulted in things being made very much worse, while coming at a much higher price. One that he demands be paid by we the American taxpayer.
As you can very plainly see, Barry "Almighty" is but the most recent Democrat president, on a long list of many, who has been quite determined in his efforts to work very diligently on the destruction of America as it was created by our Founding Fathers.

As we all remember, much was, and continues to be, talked about how Obamacare was going to be helping millions of Americans when it came to being able to spend less and to have far more options when seeking healthcare coverage. And that, which most of us were able to recognize at the time as being nothing but pure political bullshit, has turned out to be pretty much just what we thought it was back then.
And so now, at least according to a new poll released by Gallup, the percentage of Americans who now say that Obamacare has either hurt them and their family or has had no effect on them, outnumbers those who say it has helped them, by a margin of approximately 10 to 1. And I am quite confident that those numbers will continue to become even worse as this thing is allowed to continue on into the new year.
On Nov. 23-24, Gallup asked 1,034 adults the following question: "As you may know, a few of the provisions of the healthcare law have already gone into effect. So far, has the new law helped you and your family, not had an effect, or has it hurt you and your family? Only 9 percent said that Obamacare had actually helped them and their family. So what, if anything, has really been accomplished here? Ah, not much!
Because at the same time we also have 19 percent who have said that it has hurt them and their family while another 69 percent said that it had had no effect, yet, on them and their family. That combined 88 percent who said it either hurt them and their family or had no effect on them and their family represented 9.7 times as many people as the 9 percent who said it had, in any way, helped them and their family.
The truth is, that we, the American people have been royally screwed, because there is absolutely nothing about Obamacare that was actually designed to help anybody. Anybody, that is, but the Democrat Party. The sole purpose behind the creation of this bureaucratic nightmare was to come up with a way that would deliver to the government sole propriety over the ability of the American to gain access to adequate healthcare .
I mean, think about it. When whom you vote for may very well end up having an impact on the type of healthcare that you will be able to obtain for, say, a sick child. Wouldn’t that have a tendency to influence you when walking into a voting booth? And it’s that that’s behind what the Democrats are trying to do here. They want to be able to manipulate you, they want to be able to nudge you in what they see as being, the ‘proper’ direction.
Barry "Almighty" likes to boast about his having once been a Constitutional Law Professor as his way of debunking accusations that he is somehow trying to destroy our Constitution. Unfortunately, he was no such thing. Actually, what he was was something referred to as a 'senior lecturer.' Maybe that explains his ignorance when it comes to anything that has to do with our Constitution.
Let’s just say for the sake of argument, that you are the head guy, or gal, in charge of a business that bills itself as a news gathering/reporting television network. You view the mission of your business as being one where information is accumulated, verified and evaluated before then being relayed on to those who take time out of their busy day to tune in to use your network as a way of keeping themselves informed. Now suppose you, being the head of this organization, noted that over a specific period of time, a few months but certainly no longer than a year, the number of folks tuning into your network seems to be steadily decreasing. What would you do?
Such is the dilemma that is now being faced by several of the more ‘liberal’ cable news outlets, but more specifically, CNN and MSNBC. Because as it turns out, it's been kind of a tough year for these two cable networks who, as hysterical as it may sound, actually like to refer to themselves as being providers of news and information. But oddly enough, neither one of these two networks actually provide much in the way of what can be termed, useful information. And it would seem that data released just this past Tuesday proves that point. That data shows CNN shedding 48 percent of total viewers since last November and MSNBC dropping 45 percent.
But that’s not even the worst of the bad news. Because things get even worse when you start looking at that the all-important demographic of people aged 25 to 54. In that particular group, CNN's ratings dropped by 59 percent and MSNBC's by 52 percent. Now granted, in an off-election year, and with last November's numbers most likely skewed a little higher as a result of the presidential election, I suppose that it should be expected for ratings to decline. But losing half of your total number of viewers? You can’t tell me that there weren’t that many folks who were tuned into these two networks because of last year’s campaign. That would have to be a lot of people.
Now let’s compare those numbers to, say, the Fox News Channel. Well what do you know, Fox didn't see anything even remotely close to the losses experienced by either CNN or MSNBC. In fact, FNC is only down 18 percent since last November and 30 percent in the demo. As you might imagine, prime time numbers were also down. There CNN was off 54 percent in total viewers and 62 percent in the demo. MSNBC declined 50 percent in total prime time viewers and 57 percent in the demo. By contrast, FNC was second in all of cable in prime time this November, experiencing a decline of 21 percent in total viewers and 41 percent in the demo.
So, against let’s say you’re in charge of the network that has these days become one referred to as the Communist News Network, or CNN. People no longer choose to listen to the drivel CNN pumps out across the airwaves day in and day out, and that is somehow referred to as being actual news. But at least the people CNN has working for them appear to have a bit more credibility than those who make up that weird bunch of what are nothing more than bizarre cartoon characters, one is subjected to by tuning into MSNBC. So with that in its favor wouldn’t you think that CNN would attempt to make changes that would actually entice more folks to watch?
That is what I think most rational people would do, but apparently, rational people seem to be in rather short supply at both CNN and MSNBC. I mean, let’s face it, speaking of MSNBC, how is the hiring of Alec Baldwin going to draw in more viewers? Of course, as we all know, his own big mouth got him fired before he really even got started, but that’s beside the point. Someone actually thought this boob would be good for ratings. People, most intelligent people, don’t want to hear that which is so easily recognizable as propaganda. Of these two, CNN would most likely be the easier to salvage. But it obvious that some changes are needed, BIG changes.
I have just a few suggestions to offer if anybody’s interested. And again I’m talking mainly about CNN, because MSNBC is simply too far gone to be saved. They are perfectly content to do nothing more than spew their propaganda. With CNN the first thing that needs to be done is for all of the dead wood to be gotten rid of. Those who would remain would be told, and in no uncertain terms, that what they are now a part of is not a propaganda organization, it is a news and information organization. They would be told that their job is not to echo Democrat talking points, their job is to tell the truth and to keep the American public properly informed.
Let’s face it, I think most folks are like me, they tune into Fox News because they feel there is nowhere else they can go to actually hear both sides of an issue. And that’s really all most folks are looking for. On Fox News no one is ever told their positions are stupid. Opposing viewpoints are allowed to be expressed, there’s no ridiculing, there’s no attempt to shout someone down because of what they are saying, it’s usually really all quite civil. Granted, liberals still think that they can just shout over the top of those who disagree, but most of the time they’re kept in check. So those in charge of CNN have a decision to make, they can make the necessary changes, or go the way of the Dodo. It’s up to them.
I think most of us are able to easily recognize the fact the October 1 rollout of Obamacare was essentially nothing short of a complete and utter disaster for Barry and his administration. But it was just few days later that Barry got some much needed assistance in creating a propaganda campaign that I can only assume was a direct attempt to limit, as much as possible, the damage created. As it turns out there was at least one group who was provided a $1 million grant to help lead what would be described as being a rebranding effort with the hope of salvaging the law in the eyes of the American people. The intent behind this little scheme was, of course, to simply con the Americans people into believing that Obamacare isn’t as bad as it would seem to be.
So anyway, some outfit that bills itself as Families USA, which, by the way, is an organization that also describes itself as being a "national nonprofit, non-partisan organization dedicated to the achievement of high-quality, affordable health care for all Americans", was given a $1.1 million grant by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation on October 4, 2013. That money was to be then used to create what was essentially nothing more than a propaganda campaign to consist of supposed "success stories" from Americans dealing with Obamacare. They were then to distribute these concocted "success stories" to various members of our state-controlled media complex who would then, of course, refer to them often as an "independent" group.
Now those of you who are unfamiliar with The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, it is the United States' largest philanthropy devoted exclusively to health and health care; it is based in Princeton, New Jersey. The foundation states as its mission, the improving the health and health care of all Americans. The foundation has $9.2 Billion in assets, generating grants approaching $400 Million a year to, supposedly, "address the nation’s most complex health and health care issues. Dr. Risa Lavizzo-Mourey is President and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and is the first woman and the first black to head the Foundation. So I am sure that with Ms. Lavizzo-Mourey, being black, is very willing to spend whatever might be necessary to help out Barry.
Now in getting back to Families USA, it doesn’t take a whole of effort to discover that this organization is a far cry from being "non-partisan". What this organization is, is an extremely close ally of Barry, his administration and Enroll America. Now Enroll America would be that same questionable group that’s leading the efforts to get people signed up for Obamacare. Philippe Villers, the president of Families USA, also serves as the Secretary and Treasurer of Board of a little-known group called the Herndon Alliance. The Herndon Alliance originated in Herndon, VA in 2005 and produced research that the left used repeatedly to sell the overhaul of the United States health care system and counteract opposition as Barry was pushing for Obamacare.
As has been reported by the Washington Free Beacon, it was this same group that can be credited with crafting Barry’s often repeated, yet blatantly false message of, "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it", and that is also backed with considerable funding from none other than that sleazy billionaire and Democrat sugar-daddy, George Soros and his Open Society Institute. And in going all the way back to 2009 we see where Politico wrote, "When President Barack Obama says Americans can maintain their ‘choice’ of doctors and insurance plans, he is using a Herndon strategy for wringing fear out of a system overhaul." They were also described as, "the most influential group in the health arena that the public has never heard of."
Ron Pollack, co-founder and Executive Director of Families USA, told the Washington Post in a 2010 interview said that after the passage of Obamacare he was going to help found a group called Enroll America in order to raise millions of dollars to assist with enrollment. "We’re actually helping to found a new organization to work on this. Its placeholder name is Enroll America, and it will involve all the different interest groups, from supporters of reform like consumers groups to community health centers and doctors and insurers," Pollack said in an interview. He continued, "And what we’ll do is raise tens of millions of dollars for state groups to work with the state to try to create the most effective systems to apply and enroll."
Pollack currently sits on the board of directors of Enroll America. In fact, the grants given by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation show Families USA and Enroll America are in the exact same office building, in the exact same suite. So you see, these are the types of slimy characters, and organizations, that have been solicited, or who have cheerfully volunteered, to assist Barry in creating what can only be described as a massive campaign of deception and propaganda in his continuing effort to force Obamacare onto the American people who, and in growing numbers, have made it very clear that they don’t want it. But what the American people want is really of very little consequence, what’s important is what the Democrat Party wants. And what it wants very much, is to control your healthcare, and therefore…you.

Rumor has it that the Republicans have made what’s being referred to as being a massive turnaround in the past month, boosting hopes that the GOP could be headed for victory in next year's congressional elections. And supposedly, along with this massive turnaround comes a real chance for the GOP to take control of both the House and the Senate as rich, white, and rural voters move away from the Democrats. And trust me when I say, as much as the establishment Republicans would like nothing more than to take credit for this massive swing, I would venture to say that it has taken place more in spite of, than because of, anything that they’ve done.
But now comes the $18 Trillion question: Can the Republicans manage to hold onto those new supporters in the 12 months running up to next year's crucial midterm vote? After all, it was just a month ago that the Republicans were sucking wind because the government shutdown in the bitter battle over Obamacare was laid at their door. It was in a generic ballot just last month, where voters were asked to pick between Democrats and Republicans in their congressional district that Democrats were chosen, 50 percent to 42 percent. But things seem to have turned around in the past four weeks to where the Republicans now lead 49 percent to 47 percent.
Apparently the biggest shifts toward the Republicans has come from white voters, higher-income Americans, and people who live in rural areas. And if those patterns hold true going into 2014, it may indicate that Obamacare, while popular among those who it is said to help the most, remains unpopular among the larger group of voters who because of the rising cost of health insurance are now more concerned about being forced into covering the cost of Obamacare. But Democrats have gained strength in the past month among some of their "natural constituencies," or those who make up our parasite class which consists mostly of non-white and lower-income voters.
Republicans now have a 17-seat advantage in the House while Democrats hold a 55-45 majority in the Senate. Thirty-five of the 100 Senate seats are up for election in the midterms, 33 scheduled along with special elections in South Carolina and Hawaii, giving Republicans another opportunity to gain control of the upper chamber from the Democrats for the first time since 2006. Earlier this month a survey conducted by Quinnipiac University showed that Barry's approval rating was at its lowest level, with just 39 percent, since he entered the White House back in 2009. And a majority also said Barry is neither honest nor trustworthy. Imagine that!
Which, I suppose, brings me back to where I started here. I can’t help but wonder if the limp-wristed boobs who are now in charge of the Republican Party, will once again succeed in doing that which they seem to be better at than just about anyone else, the shooting of themselves in both feet. Their skill at doing that very thing is what keeps me from even fantasizing about the potential electoral prospects that are currently being discussed relating to the coming midterm elections. If we only had a few more fighters on our team I might be more willing to actually believe that such a scenario could become a reality. But I guess we’re just gonna have to wait and see.
The arrival of government-run healthcare under the banner of Obamacare was, and actually still is, heralded by progressives from coast to coast. It was to be a boon to all Americans at every single social level. It would do what everyone said couldn’t be done, it would bring down costs while at the same time broadening choices for all. But, as they say, truth is often stranger than fiction. Because even though it was sold to us as being the greatest thing since sliced bread, the Democrats, who could not be bothered to read even a single page of their creation, were still forced to use all manner of political trickery to ‘pass’ it so that the legislation which bears his last name, could then be moved on to the desk of Barry "Almighty" for signature.
And at the time it was the ‘Botox" addicted Democrat Speaker of the House who loudly declared that the legislation would first need to passed ‘before’ we would be able to see what was in it. Well, Americans are now beginning to find out what’s in it, and it ain’t pretty. From a half-assed, stitched together website to skyrocketing premiums to millions loosing their coverage, it’s hard to describe this thing as being anything other than a failure. And now we’re being told that 80 million people with employer health plans could find their coverage being canceled because they are not compliant with Obamacare. And their losses would be ‘in addition to’ the millions who have already found their individual coverage cancelled for the very same reason.
Stan Veuger of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) said that in addition to the individual cancellations, "at least half the people on employer plans would by 2014 start losing plans as well." There are approximately 157 million employer health care policy holders. And Avik Roy of the Manhattan Institute added, "the administration estimated that approximately 78 million Americans with employer sponsored insurance would lose their existing coverage due to the Affordable Care Act." An analysis by the American Enterprise Institute showed the administration anticipates up to 100 million small businesses would have policies canceled or be compelled to send workers onto the Obamacare exchanges. What a deal?
And we know that administration was very well aware of the impact that Obamacare would have, three years ago. In fact, according to the Federal Register, its mid-range estimate was that by the end of 2014, 76 percent of all small group plans would be cancelled, along with 55 percent of large employer plans. The reason behind the losses is that current plans don't meet the idiotic requirements of Obamacare, which dictate that each plan must cover a list of essential benefits, whether people actually want them or not. "Things like maternity care or acupuncture or extensive drug coverage," said Veuger. "And so now the law is going to force them to buy policies that they could have gotten in the past if they wanted to but they chose not to."
So, since Americans passed up an opportunity in 2012 to remove this Obamcare albatross from around their collective neck, can we, or even should we, expect them to do anything different in 2014 or even 2016? And should we be surprised, or even shocked, when they don’t? I must admit, these days my confidence in the ability of the American people to be able to figure out what’s best for the country is nowhere near what it used to be. And even though I’m being told, and by many who should know, that the Republicans now have the upper hand going into next year’s elections, I’m not convinced. Because most of those folks are the very same ones who were telling me, and with some degree of confidence, that Romney would win in a landslide.
Over the course of the coming months I’m sure that we can expect to see Barry and the Democrats pulling out all the stops as they work to not only preserve Obamacare in its entirety but to push through some manner of immigration ‘reform’ the end result of which would be to improve their chances at the ballot box next November. And with the team of gutless morons that we seem to have on our side in Congress, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if we were to simply hand over to the Democrats everything that they want. So, as is usually the case, it will be left up to we the people to do all that we can in the attempt to salvage what we can of what remains of our once prosperous nation. But, I’m afraid, we seem to be going against the current.

Apparently there’s a new national poll now out that shows only four out of every 10 Americans actually believe that Barry is managing the government "effectively". And even more revealing is that 53 percent of us do not believe that he is either honest or trustworthy. Personally, I find such a revelation as being too little, too late. After all, the man’s character should have always been suspect, as he has always been able to lie with what is an uncommon ease. Now in more normal times I’d say that such numbers would spell bad news for a president, but unfortunately, these are not normal times.
Anyway in this recent survey of 843 adults that was conducted Nov. 18-20 by CNN/ORC International we find that there has been a drop of 12 percentage points, just from June, when 52 percent of respondents, in another CNN/ORC poll, said that Barry was effective in running the government. This new figure of 53 percent of respondents who do not now believe that Barry is someone who is either honest or trustworthy, is a figure that for the very first time represents "a clear majority" raising that concern. But, again, like I said before I doubt very much that Barry is all that concerned.
"A lot of attention has focused on the president's numbers on honesty in new polling the past three weeks, but it looks like the recent controversy over Obamacare has had a bigger impact on his status as an effective manager of the government, and that may be what is really driving the drop in Obama's approval rating this fall," CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. The study also revealed that 56 percent of respondents do not agree with Barry on the big issues, which, of course, can be said to include Obamacare. That, by the way, is the same number who said they do not admire Barry.
So, according to the poll, we have 53 percent of the country who does not now think that Barry is "a strong and decisive leader," while 56 percent have declared that he does not "inspire confidence." These are the worst numbers for Barry in a CNN poll since he first took office. "It's clear that views of Obama as a person, once his strong suit, have taken a hit in October and throughout 2013," said Holland. Look, anyone who has ever been able to look at Barry and somehow see a ‘leader’ capable of inspiring confidence, is also very obviously someone who is urgently in need of an eye exam.
Strangely enough, in this very same survey there were seven out of 10 respondents who were still somehow able to describe Barry as being a likable person, while six out of 10 believe he has a vision of where the country is headed. Now, and again this is just my own personal opinion, I don’t consider someone who purposely lies to me on a daily basis, as being very likeable. And while I too can agree with the fact that the man has a vision of where the country is headed, the question is, is that vision of his something that bodes well for our children. I would argue that it most definitely does not.
So here we are in a place where we are essentially stuck with this guy for another three years. We the American people have come up being a day late and a dollar short. Now I can kinda understand why it was that all the blacks all voted for him, but for crying out loud folks, the rest of us should have been able to recognize the fact that when it comes to actually being able to lead, Barry just ain’t got it. He’s nothing but a stirrer of the pot, a community agitator, whose primary focus has been to keep us all distracted by encouraging us to fight with one another. Now look at the mess we’re in.
So now, if this poll is correct, many Americans are finally beginning to recognize something that has been right before their eyes for more than five years. But, whether out of fear of being called a racist, or out of some misplaced sense of wanting to give this a guy a chance, they’ve been willing to look the other way. And now with the growing number of scandals we find surrounding him and the outright lies he told, repeatedly, about Obamacare acting like a splash of ice cold water right in the face, they simply can no longer look the other way. But now it’s liable to be more than a little too late.
Gasbag Steny Hoyer, number two Democrat in the House and one of those very proud supporters of Obamacare, recently made it quite clear that while he and his fellow Democrats who so enthusiastically supported Obamacare are, what he described as being, "all very disappointed" in the rollout process, he also indicated that repealing the law is simply not an option for correcting all the problems. And in taking things a step further he also told senile old Bob Schieffer on Sunday, "I don't think Obamacare has failed." I guess I’m a little curious here, what is it that we would need to have happen before old Steny could actually bring himself to admit that this thing is anything but a colossal failure?
Steny attempted to justify this idiotic opinion of his by saying, "Access to Obamacare has been a failure at this point in time, and it needs to be fixed. So from that standpoint, the substance of Obamacare is yet to be tested. And to the extent it has been tested, it's been a success for millions of people." I can only assume he was referring to young people who can stay on their parents' policies until age 26 and people with pre-existing conditions who can no longer be denied coverage. Now there are several ways that I could choose to describe Obamacare, but calling it a success in any way, shape manner or form, just isn’t one of them. This was a debacle of the highest order.
In refusing to call it Obamacare, Hoyer then went on to say, "The process has been terrible, and we're all very disappointed, those of us who support the Affordable Care Act." He added, "But the Affordable Care Act, Bob -- the majority of the American public says, look, we need to fix it, not repeal it." Hoyer said it's necessary to improve access to the online exchanges: "We don't need to start over. And Bob, I don't think the American people want to start over. They want a system that works. We all do. And the Republicans have offered no alternative at this point in time, simply repeal." This is a favorite argument constantly put forward by Democrats and many in the state-controlled media.
But, in reality, nothing could be further from the truth. Because the actual truth of the matter is that there have been numerous plans put forward, and by numerous Republicans, that had they been enacted or even included in the final product of Obamacare, would have actually had an impact in trying to accomplish that which we were told was the supposed purpose of Obamacare. Several Republican bills have been since introduced in the House the goal of which is to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a health insurance system that would allow Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines and allow small businesses to pool together to boost their buying power.
Going back to when discussions first began on Obamacare, there have been several suggestions made by Republicans included such things as making changes to malpractice laws to also expand access to Health Savings Accounts. Funding could also be set aside for high-risk pools to help those people with pre-existing conditions afford insurance. But you see, since the real goal of Obamacare never had anything whatsoever to with lowering costs or increasing options, these suggestions were quickly dismissed as being something other than serious suggestions. They were viewed as not being useful to creating what the Democrats were truly trying to create, a way for the government to tightly control of our healthcare system.
Let’s face it, all that has been accomplished by the implementation of Obamacare is the wholesale destruction of the single best healthcare system in the world. Democrats like Hoyer can try to color it up any way they want, but this thing is nothing but a boondoggle of the highest order. And the Democrats left no stone unturned in their effort to force it upon the American people, while at the same time making sure that they wouldn’t be required to abide by its requirements themselves. We cannot allow this to stand, and if Democrats like Hoyer wish to stubbornly hang on to this thing, well then, they should be made to die, politically speaking of course, for doing so.

In what I can only assume was an effort on his part to prove beyond the shadow of any doubt that he is most definitely dumber than dirt, the esteemed Democrat senator from Rhode Island, Sheldon Whitehouse, actually thought it important enough to warn us all how it is that sports stadiums are now at risk from the "sea level rise effects of climate change," and that climate change specifically threatens hockey and skiing. Now you’d think that there would be some genius on his staff who would have pulled him aside and told them that temperatures haven’t increased for 15 years.
But anyway, it was following what was a closed-door climate discussion with, of all people, executives from the NFL, NHL and NBA that this brilliant boob said, "We see significant sports facilities, the palaces of - of sport that are at risk from the storm, climate, sea-level rise effects of climate change." And he said the threat to hockey is that people will no longer be able to play outdoors on frozen ponds. Actually what he said was, "Without cold enough weather for frozen ponds, the kind of hockey that you play out of doors with your friends gets a little bit harder to achieve."
Whitehouse also suggested climate change will prevent his family from continuing to go skiing in Rhode Island: "I took my kids skiing at Yawgoo Valley ski slopes in Rhode Island. The New York Times recently reported that we can expect all the ski slopes in Connecticut and Massachusetts to be gone." He then added, "Obviously, given Rhode Island's location, if that's true of Connecticut and Massachusetts, that will also be unfortunately true of Rhode Island." So is this what he’s basing his belief in climate change on, his inability to go skiing? How utterly scientific.
But I gotta tell ya, the good senator, here, has a bit of a reputation when it comes to such Chicken Little scare tactics. As recently as in May of this year, this moron blamed Republican inaction on climate change for deadly tornados in Oklahoma. And I’m quite confident that he, most likely, is a card-carrying member of the same groups of which George "Looney" Clooney is a proud member, and that loudly tout how the recent typhoon that hit the Philippines was also a direct result of climate change. These clowns use any unusual bit of weather to prove their idiotic theory.
These leftwing nut jobs are very determined in their efforts to convince as many gullible folks as they can, that this cockamamie theory of theirs, which is really based on nothing more than junk science at its finest, is actually something that we all need to be genuinely concerned about. Back in the 70’s many of these same kooks were trying to convince us all that we needed to be preparing for the coming ice age. We see how that worked out. It is the most basic of scientific fact that our Mother Earth cools and warms in what is a cyclical fashion. To claim otherwise is simply dishonest.
Look, I think it’s pretty fair to say that this entire concocted threat that those on the left seem to relish in referring to as being the cause for some pending apocalypse, is nothing more than a money making scheme for some, and is seen as an excellent way to deconstruct the American economy by others. For those such as Al Gore, the pushing of climate change has proven to be very profitable. While others, such as Barry "Almighty", as well as the entire Democrat Party, view it as a weapon to be used to inflict all manner of carnage across very wide areas of our economy.
I think that we can all now safely agree, especially after witnessing the recent action taken by ‘Dingy Harry’ to tilt the playing field more in favor of Barry "Almighty", who seems to view himself as being ‘Our Supreme Leader’, that the reaching of that point in time which will demand all freedom loving Americans band together to fight the forces of those who now seem to be so determined to destroy our country, is very rapidly approaching. Because they have now managed to make great strides.
And, sadly, we must now come to the realization, whether we really want to admit it to ourselves or not, that those whom we have chosen to elect to represent us in Congress and who have sworn to protect and defend our Constitution, have neither the stomach nor the will, to do what we all know has now become vitally necessary. They are gutless cowards who apparently have no qualms, whatsoever, about allowing those on the left to continue with their agenda to ‘fundamentally transform’ this once great and prosperous nation.
We are nearing that point in time when, if we are ever to have any hope of returning our nation to its former greatness, we will be required, even forced, to take matters into our own hands. Because what is being committed against our country, and therefore us, and all in the name of "fairness", is actually nothing of the sort. There is something very sinister at work here, and if we, the American people, fail to snap out of whatever trance we seem to be in, we may wake up one morning and find that we have lost everything.
What we must not now do is to come to rely on those false prophets who so proudly proclaim that they believe, as we do, in the inherent greatness of America and in the rules of government as laid out in our Constitution. And I am quite confident that there is no need to mention any names here, I think we are all quite capable of being able to easily recognize just who those individuals are. To actually rely on such untrustworthy characters would do nothing toward accomplishing our goal of trying to change the direction of our country.
If you like, you may consider this as a plea. A plea for more of the American people to come to their senses, and to finally recognize that which is being perpetrated against us. Our leaders view us as fools, and up to this point I’m afraid we’ve done very little that would convince them that we are anything other than fools. We need to change that. We need to make them understand, and in no uncertain terms, that we will NOT go quietly into the night, and that we will be the ones to determine the fate of our country, not them.

So I ask you, just how useless do YOU think our illustrious House Speaker, John Boehner is? Personally, at this particular point in time I’d have to say that he’s pretty damn useless. For one thing, I seem to recall, not all that long ago, that he was making it sound like any move on immigration reform was pretty far off in the distance, if it was to happen at all. Then, just today, he was said to have bristled at the mere mention that immigration reform might be dead for the coming year. "Is immigration reform dead? Absolutely not," he told reporters at his weekly press conference. Such a comment should cause a little unease.
Boehner said that he is "hopeful" that the House can make progress on the issue, even though one of his top deputies recently said there is not enough time to hold votes this year. He said that House Republicans are still having private conversations on how to move forward, but stressed that it will address the issue with smaller individual bills rather than one sweeping bill like the one passed by the Senate. But he would not say when the House would vote on immigration reform legislation. Let’s face it, we have many issues that are far more urgent in they’re need to be addressed than is immigration reform.
And in a rare occurrence, Boehner praised Barry "Almighty" for reiterating that he’s open to passing an immigration overhaul in pieces, as long as every element of reform is included. "I was encouraged that the president said he wouldn't stand in the way of a step by step immigration reform," he said. "The only way to make sure immigration reform works this time is to address these complicated issues one step at a time." Naturally, immigrant advocates and Democrats have, of late, been doing their best to make Boehner into a whipping boy on the issue. Frankly, I’m more than a little surprised that he hasn’t yet caved.
Boehner drew fire for saying recently that he would not negotiate on the Senate's broad immigration overhaul, which includes a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. Demonstrators have picketed Boehner at his office and his home, demanding that he hold a vote on immigration legislation. The Speaker has also received internal pressure from some Republicans, who, rather naively, view immigration reform as being a key step in winning back Latino and Asian voters. That’s simply absurd. Let’s face it, If that were truly the case why would Democrats now be working so hard on getting legislation passed?
The bottom line here is that these days I trust very little of what I hear come out of Boehner’s mouth. Because anything that he says today stands a very good chance of being quite different from what he’s likely to say tomorrow. He’s like that guy you used see in one of the carnival’s side shows, ‘Rubber Man.’ I can only assume that he must think none of us are paying any attention. You know, there are any number of people who would be capable of doing a much better job than Boehner. I can only assume that they must not want the job. But I think it safe to say that if their country ever needed them, it needs them now.
Proving yet again that he must reside in that strange liberal alternative universe where up is down and down is up, Barry "Almighty" actually went before a gathering of business executives, just this past Tuesday, and very confidently told them that, no, the federal government was not "lavishly spending" on social programs. Frankly, I find it nothing short of amazing that he could say such a thing with a straight face, or that he could do so without being struck by a bolt of lightning for telling what was such an obvious, as well as outrageous, lie. Because the truth of matter is that Barry has been spending very lavishly since January 10, 2009, the day after his coronation.
Continuing on with this dishonest charade, Barry went on to say, "What we know is, is that our -- our fiscal problems are not short-term deficits. Our discretionary budget, that portion of the federal budget that isn't defense or Social Security or Medicare or Medicaid, the entitlement programs, is at its smallest level in my lifetime, probably since Dwight Eisenhower." Barry continued, "We are not lavishly spending on a whole bunch of social programs out there." Finally adding, "And in many ways, a lot of these programs have become more efficient and pretty effective," he added. However, the actual facts paint a far different, and far more costly, picture.
The U.S. Treasury Department records the following expenditures on a few of the many, so-called, social safety-net programs for Fiscal 2013 and Fiscal 2012. Here are a few examples of how in most cases, the amounts increased year-to-year:
1. Medicaid: $265.392 billion ($250.534B in FY 2012)
2. Food stamps (SNAP): $82.548 billion ($80.401B in FY 2012)
3. Housing and Urban Development Department: $56.576 billion ($49.578B in FY 2012)
4. Supplemental Security Income: $56.489 billion ($50.674B in FY 2012)
5. Child Nutrition Programs: $19.325 billion ($18.309B in FY 2012)
6. Temporary Assistance to Needy Families: $17.017 billion (16.136B in FY 2012)
7. Women, Infant and Children (WIC): $6.557 billion ($6.837B in FY 2012).
It’s been reported that Americans who were recipients of government benefits in 2011 outnumbered year-round full-time workers, according to data released in October by the Census Bureau. Among the 108,592,000 people who fit the Census Bureau’s description of a means-tested benefit recipient in the fourth quarter of 2011 were 82,457,000 people in households receiving Medicaid; 49,073,000 beneficiaries of food stamps; 20,223,000 on Supplemental Security Income; 23,228,000 in the Women, Infants and Children program; 13,433,000 in public or subsidized rental housing; and 5,854,000 in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program.
Also among the 108,592,000 means-tested benefit recipients counted by the Census Bureau were people getting free or reduced-price lunch or breakfast, state-administered supplemental security income and means-tested veterans pensions. And according to a 2012 Heritage Foundation analysis, the means-tested welfare system consists of 79 federal programs providing cash, food, housing, medical care, social services, training, and targeted education aid to poor and low-income Americans. Heritage calculated that total federal and state means-tested welfare spending reached $927 billion in Fiscal Year 2011.
Barry "Almighty" also made the claim that it’s healthcare costs that are driving our deficits: "So when we talk about our deficit and debt problems, it is almost entirely health care costs. You eliminate the delta -- the difference between what we spend on health care and what every other country -- advanced, industrialized nation -- spends on health care, and that's our long-term debt. And if we're able to bend the cost curve, we help solve the problem." Adding, "Now, one way to do that is just to make health care cheaper overall. That's, I think, the best way to do it, and that's what we've been doing through some of the measures in the Affordable Care Act."
Yup, as we should all know by now, Barry can be quite the storyteller. Because the sad fact of the matter is that Barry is doing his level best to maintain a level of spending that he hopes will be sufficient to bring our entire economic and financial structure crashing down on itself. And any claims that he may make to the contrary are nothing but pure propaganda. This guy’s entire life has been built on one lie after another on top of yet another. Lying is what he does, and is the only thing that he’s really good at. And, I guess, for many people, that’s enough. For those folks all that matters is that he’s black, the fact that he’s trying to destroy our country doesn’t matter.
I’m kinda curious about something. How is it, exactly, that someone who has so completely misrepresented, and is still doing so, not only what Obamacare would cost, but also what it would do and was even designed to do, can now make the claim, as Sen. Claire McCaskill, Democrat, has now done, that it’s the Republicans who are "misleading people" about Obamacare, which she comically refers to as being a "free market solution"? Such an accusation begs the question, does the fact that she can make such a claim, reveal her to be naïve, dishonest of just plain stupid?
McCaskill actually told the dozen or so viewers who happened to be tuned into MSNBC, on Nov. 14, that Obamacare, which mandates that people buy only government-approved insurance and has resulted in the cancellations of millions of policies, is a "free market solution". "I think we just want people to get the right information, instead of the misinformation that Republicans love to spread about this reform," McCaskill said. Adding that, "Scaring people, misleading people, this is a free market solution and we hope people take advantage of it."
Earlier that same day, McCaskill was discussing the possible changes that could be made to Obamacare on another one of MSNBC’s little-watched programs, Morning Joe program. It was during this little exercise in deception that she told MSNBC’s economic analyst, somebody by the name of, Steve Rattner about the free market efforts of Obamacare: "I think we need to do something to reassure the country that we’re willing to work at this to make it better," McCaskill said. Now wait a minute here. Make it better? Doesn’t this thing have to work as it was supposedly passed?
Then this imbecile went on to say, "We’re trying to do it free market here. The irony – everybody says Obamacare is evil - we’re trying to do it free market. And as you know as well, or as better than anybody in the country, for every action in the free market there is a reaction, so we have to be very careful how we do this so we don’t have any unintended consequences." Unintended consequences? Lady, look around you! Of course, I think it only fair to say that the consequences that we have seen thus far are of the variety that Democrats like Ms. McCaskill fully intended to take place.
Old Claire’s seems perfectly willing to ignore completely the fact that 4.8 million insurance cancellation notices have now been issued to policyholders whose current plans are now considered to be ‘illegal’ under Obamacare. And also how millions more cancellation notifications are likely to be sent out in the coming months. And I’m sure that it only slipped her mind that it was that she, and every one of her fellow Democrats in Congress, who voted to make sure that that would in fact happen. And to now try to lay blame for her predicament on the Republicans is really pretty sleazy.
After all, the Republicans played absolutely no part in turning Obamacare into a reality. They were asked to provide no input, played no part in its drafting and not one Republican voted for it. So I would think it rather foolish to actually think that they would now be willing to throw the Democrats a rope. Claire needs to put herself in their shoes, how willing would she be to assist the Republicans with one their pet projects? So in using what is, I guess, typical Democrat logic, she feels that if they’re unwilling to help, it’s only fair that they be blamed for all of the ongoing problems.

It would seem that everyone is not happy there in the liberal paradise referred to as the Democrat Party with Barry now finding himself on the Christmas list of, fewer and fewer, congressional Democrats. It’s been said that Barry’s relationship with congressional Democrats has gotten a bit rocky, of late, and is now at an unprecedented low. And what’s worse, folks there in Congress are letting it be known that House and Senate Democrats are becoming increasingly frustrated, bitter and angry with the White House over Obamacare’s botched rollout, and that Barry’s mea culpa in a news conference last week did very little to soothe any ill will.
Sources who attended a little get together of House chiefs of staff on Monday say the room was, as they put it, seething with anger over the immense damage being done to the Democrat Party and talk was of scrapping rollout events for the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. "Here we are, we’re supposed to be selling this to people, and it’s all screwed up," one chief of staff ranted. "This either gets fixed or this could be the demise of the Democrat Party. We should be so lucky! "It’s probably the worst I’ve ever seen it," the aide said of the recent mood on Capitol Hill. "It’s bad. It’s really bad." And such political drama could not happen to a better group.
Meanwhile, during a recent caucus meeting, a gathering during which I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall, between Senate Democrats and White House chief of staff Denis McDonough, one senator stood up and asked for a political point of contact at the White House. "There’s been an increase in frustration because people feel like they are continuing to be blindsided," said one Democrat who attended the caucus meeting, adding that there’s a "check-the-box" mentality at the White House in dealing with lawmakers. Ok, and these guys are just now figuring this out? It was all fine and dandy when things were going their way.
Democrats around Capitol Hill say there are lots of people to blame for the debacle that has engulfed them. But increasingly their anger is directed at one person and one person only: and that would be none other than Barry "Almighty". Now I’m about to do something here that I am totally unaccustomed to doing, and that would be to defend Barry. It was every single Democrat in Congress who voted for this thing. And not only that, it’s many of these very same Democrats who are now having a cow over this thing, who had a hand in writing the legislation that, according to Nancy, would have to be passed in order for us to then see what was in it.
In the news conference last week, Barry, rather uncharacteristically, accepted responsibility for the botched site and acknowledged that the failure of the rollout "has put a burden on Democrats, whether they’re running or not, because they stood up and supported this effort through thick and thin. "And I feel deeply responsible for making it harder for them rather than easier for them to continue to promote the core values that I think led them to support this thing in the first place, which is, in this country, as wealthy as we are, everybody should be able to have the security of affordable healthcare," Barry said. "And that’s why I feel so strongly about fixing it."
The White House hasn’t indicated just how much Barry will help campaign for those who are up for reelection next year. Barry, who has been attending a string of fundraisers in recent days, including a West Coast check-collecting trip this weekend, is expected to help lawmakers and both campaign committees throughout 2014. But as the healthcare problems continue to mount, lawmakers in swing districts aren’t sure that’s the best idea, especially because, according to one Democrat, "systemically you have what is a long-term problem." "It wouldn’t be helpful," the Senate aide said. "Maybe he can help raise some money for Democrats, but that’s the extent of it."
This whole Obamacare mess that the Democrats are now hip deep in, is one essentially of their own making. They wrote the bill, and they ‘passed’ the bill using just about every political trick available to them, and now they have the nerve to be whining about what it is that they themselves created. I suppose one could say that this is a perfect example of that old adage that says, "Be careful what you wish for." The Democrats have long wished to make socialized medicine a reality. And now that they have it, and it just may be what could lead to their downfall. What’s that they say about poetic justice? The Democrats made their bed, now they can lie in it.
The White House has finally come out and admitted, just yesterday, that Barry, who has portrayed himself, as with Benghazi, as with NSA’s eavesdropping, as with ‘Fast & Furious’, and as with the IRS harassing conservative groups, as being very surprised by all of the technical problems that have been encountered with the government's Obamacare website, even though he was apparently briefed earlier this year on a consultant's report warning that just this kind of widespread site failures was possible. So if he knew such things were possible back in March, how can he be surprised now?
There has been an unending series of questions regarding whether Barry actually understood the depth of the site's problems but decided to let it open anyway, or if he simply "did not have enough awareness" of them, as he claimed at a Nov. 14 news conference. And while the government says it is improving the portal's performance each and every day, security experts still say that it is not sufficiently secure to be used confidently by consumers. From all that I’ve been able to read about it, this thing is a hacker’s dream. It’s become to go-to website for identity thieves.
And now, even as the administration fends off criticism of the so-called "front end" of the system, officials recently revealed that they have not yet completed development of the "back end," the financial management component needed to finalize federal subsidies for consumers who buy health plans. So, apparently, even if you are able to navigate through this thing far enough to choose a plan, you are still unable to finalize the deal because, even after spending over $600 Million on its construction, this thing hasn’t yet been completed.
Some spokesbimbo for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which just so happens to be the lead agency for the website, said it would not be completed until mid-January, weeks after the first enrollees are scheduled to begin receiving benefits under Obamacare, which, as you recall, was passed back in 2010. The law mandated that Americans have health insurance and created new online marketplaces to buy and sell policies. And now because of it’s piss-poor performance, Barry's approval rating has dipped to a low of 37 percent. Not that that matters to him.
Information about just how messed up this thing is has been leaking out over the past several weeks. Monday night, however, Republican lawmakers released a report and recommendations prepared by McKinsey & Co at the government's request back in March. It cited, among other things, a rushed process that left insufficient time for testing and a focus by officials on getting people enrolled versus making the system work right. The consequence, it said, could be system failures that could make enrollment slow or at times impossible for consumers.
Questioned about the McKinsey study, White House spokesmoron Jay "Lying Sack of Shit" Carney said Barry had been briefed on it in the spring. But he said Barry's familiarity with the report and recommendations did not contradict previous statements from the White House that described Barry as being surprised by the scope of flaws in HealthCare.gov. Barry was told that the problems identified by McKinsey were being addressed, Carney said. And Barry had never claimed to be unaware of "red flags" about the site, only of their seriousness.
But since the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, the question has persisted whether Barry has been "less than competent or less than candid," said John Pitney, professor of politics at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California. "This tips the scales in favor of less than candid." And the release of the report by the Republican chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee makes it very apparent that Barry and his team knew months ahead of time that the website was nowhere near being ready to go live. But they did so anyway.
And it would now appear that at least some of the Democrats who were, back in 2010, so eager to shove this debacle down the collective throat of the American people are now, oddly enough, increasingly joining the chorus of criticism. For instance, we have old E-Lie-jah Cummings, a senior Democrat and an ally of Barry’s, who has called for a White House shakeup over the handling of the rollout. I actually agree 100 percent with old E-Lie-Jah, and I recommend that we start by impeaching Barry. After all, why not go right straight to the top on this one?
Look, I think we can all very safely assume that a guy like Barry, who everyone on the left says is just so darn smart, knew that this thing was going to be just the disaster that it turned out to be, but he didn’t care. In fact I wouldn’t be at all surprised to find out that what’s now taking place with this website, is exactly what Barry intended to have happen, it was all part of the master plan. Why else would you put out a product that you KNOW, isn’t going to work? I’m not nearly devious enough to know what he’s up to, but I do know that I don’t trust him.
Democrats are, without a doubt, a rather fraudulent and disingenuous bunch. And something that provides to us with a bit more proof of that very thing, is the fact that Representative Jan Schakowsky, Democrat from the very slimy state of Illinois, will soon demonstrate for us just how committed she is to supporting amnesty for all those in this country illegally. She has announced that she will do her part by fasting for one whole day, 24 hours, as part of what is a coordinated push for amnesty. She will join an effort by activists on the National Mall who, I guess, began fasting over a week ago. Who knew?
"I’m so inspired by the fasters and … how they’re willing to put their bodies on the lines, their health on the line to raise attention to an issue that is really tearing at the fabric of our country," she said. Come on, is going without something to eat for 24 hours actually defined as fasting? Schakowsky, who has planned her fast for Thursday, encouraged her colleagues to join her in her day-long fast. "Some 500 feet from our offices, these fasters are putting their health on the line to emphasize that comprehensive immigration reform cannot wait, and that the House must act," she wrote. What a moron!
Let’s face it folks, if this is really the best she can do, why bother? I mean, really, 24 hours? This is roughly the equivalent of that joke of an abortion filibuster by that other looney Democrat, and now apparent pro-life candidate for governor, Wendy Davis of Texas. Ms. Davis demonstrated her commitment to her cause by feeling the need to wear a urinary catheter during her silly little 11 hour talk. When you put both of these pathetic attempts against the 21hour filibuster, with no catheter, by Sen. Ted Cruz, the differences could not be more stark. It becomes readily apparent who is the more committed to their cause.

Once again we’re hearing how it is that the Republican Party must reach out, or essentially bend over backwards, to convince Blacks and Hispanics to join our party. That we must do all that we can to entice them into our ranks. This time the advice comes from none other than the presumed front-runner for the Republican nomination in 2016, Chris Christie. Christie told a Washington audience that the GOP needs to reach out to Hispanics and African-Americans if it wishes to be a successful national party. "Our country is changing, demographically and economically. Candidates have to understand who they're asking to lead," Christie said.
So in what, I assume, will be a continuing strategy to portray himself as being some sort of a bipartisan problem-solver, Christie set about criticizing the approach Capitol Hill Republicans adopted in opposing Obamacare. "The strategy of defunding by closing the government failed," he said. Obamacare, Christie said, "is wrong, it's a failure, it's the most extraordinary overreach of government power in the history of our country." Obviously Christie prefers a much more ‘moderate’ position since, while he did choose to block creation of a New Jersey healthcare exchange, he has actually accepted the expansion of Medicaid coverage required under Obamacare.
Saying Washington was rife with "absolutists," Christie cast blame broadly on Democrats, Republicans, and Barry "Almighty" for not talking to each other or building human relationships, according to the Huffington Post. Christie noted Barry has three years left to his term and that it is in the nation's interest to allow him to govern. "There is work to be done in this country. As we shove him out the door, we minimize his ability to be an effective executive. We shouldn't do that." Christie reveals his naivete by assuming that Barry actually wishes to govern. I should think that, by now, it would be relatively obvious that Barry has no such desire. What he wishes to do…is to RULE.
Look, since the early 1960’s blacks have been joined at the hip to the Democrat Party, and what exactly have they gotten in return for their blind loyalty, other than free phones? Not much really. Unless, of course, you count a life spent in, what is nearly, abject poverty, an out of wedlock birthrate that is through the roof, the fact that black males make up the majority of our prison population and the black family that has been all but completely decimated. Now wouldn’t you think that some level of commonsense would eventually come into play here where blacks would realize for themselves that maybe, just maybe, it’s time to take a look at the Republican Party?
While it would seem to some that there are few clear differences between the two parties, of late there have been actions taken by the Republicans that I think can be said to have been promising. Also I think that those actions were sufficient to convince to Blacks, and Hispanics, that their fortunes stand a much better chance of improving if they were to decide to flee the Democrats and take a stroll through the Republican tent. Republicans really need to do nothing more than to, perhaps, better articulate the advantages of conservatism over liberalism. And if such obvious advantages are not enough to encourage minorities to join the conservative ranks, then screw ‘em.
Because if the only thing of interest to Blacks and Hispanics is how much they can get while providing nothing in return, then they might as well stay where they are, very firmly in the Democrat Party. I’m not one, as is perhaps Mr. Christie, who favors the attempting to lure them away using government goodies. To my way of thinking either these minorities wish to be provided with opportunities that would allow them to become self-sufficient, or they don’t. And if they don’t, they can stay where they are, because I don’t want them in my party. The choice should be theirs, and quite frankly, you would think that it would be a relatively easy one. But I guess we’ll see.

And what should serve as being yet another sterling example of why affirmative action ahould now be completely gotten rid of, comes to us in the form of Prof. Anthea Butler, who is a supposed Ivy League professor and, who, in a recent appearance Saturday on MSNBC’s "Melissa Harris-Perry," said that Republicans are publicly shaming poor women for having abortions but "don’t give a damn" about the babies they are saving, because they won’t give poor mothers food stamps to feed their children. Well, now, that’s quite a mouth full, even for a black with an over-inflated sense of importance. But it’s people like her who are the real problem.
"It's the public shaming, and this is part of the problem, because - especially for poor women - if you have to go and get an abortion, you don't have the money, so you might have to go get some money from somewhere. You get to the clinic, and somebody's yelling in your face and telling you that you're an awful person for doing this," said Butler, who is, apparently, the graduate chair of religion at the University of Pennsylvania. So am I to believe that this imbecile actually teaches religion? It just strikes me as being disgusting how these blacks, who are supposed to be so religious, can, at the same time, so easily advocate the murdering of innocent babies.
Then this pathetic boob went on to say, "You actually make it in and get the abortion. When you come out, they're telling you that you're gonna go to hell and so at the same time, they are stripping away everything that you needed to be able to take care of a kid if you wanted to have it, because they won't give you the stamp benefits. They won't give you anything." Another indictor of just how useless this clown really is, would be the fact that she’s the author of "The Gospel According to Sarah: How Sarah Palin and the Tea Party are Galvanizing the Religious Right," and that she also made controversial statements following the George Zimmerman verdict.
It was in a blog post on something called, Religion Dispatches, that Butler said, after the verdict acquitting Zimmerman of Trayvon Martin’s fatal shooting, she wondered, "Is God the old white male racist looking down from white heaven, ready to bless me if I just believe the white men like Rick Perry who say the Zimmerman case has nothing to do with race?" People like this Butler character are nothing but the scum of the earth. It seems that they are constantly on the prowl for the most toxic method imaginable as they go about their stirring up of as much racial conflict as possible. It’s how the justify their existence and their positions in the black community .
Butler said if you tell women they can’t get an abortion and you’re going to "take away all the benefits," gynecological help and everything, "You’re gonna create a nation of women who are gonna be trapped, and none of you care about the babies they will birth, and none of you care about the babies that you're saving, because once they get here, you don't give a damn about them." Hey here’s a concept that Ms. Butler might wish to consider, how about people like her point to the likely consequences of trying to screw everything in sight? To remind blacks that all actions have consequences. That if you have sex, you’re likely to get pregnant.
And it’s pathetic, shameless, frauds like Ms. Butler here, who must be made to accept a larger share of the blame when it comes to why the black community is in the shape that it is today. We all, black or white, are products of the choices that we make in life. And trying to come up with excuses, which is all Ms. Butler is doing here, does absolutely nothing to help those who truly need help. Now she can accuse Republicans all she wants, but if she were truly interested in helping young women in the black community she would get off her lazy ass and do something. But then that would require the expending of far more energy than choosing to simply shoot off her big fat mouth!
Obamacare is a "rollout problem," so said Jimmy "The Tea Party Is Racist" Clyburn in his appearance on CNN's "State of the Union With ‘Bull Dog Candy’ Crowley" just this past Sunday. "The fact of the matter is, this is a rollout problem, this is not a values problem. And I think that if we were to look at what we're attempting to do with the Affordable Health Care Act, you will know that what we're trying to do is change a values system in our country." I always find it being just a bit disingenuous whenever scumbags like Clyburn start talking about values as if they have any. Because is there no one more clueless on the subject than a Democrat?
So we should not have been surprised when ‘Little Jimmy’ chose not to elaborate on the nation's "values system." Instead, he wanted to talk more about policy cancellations, saying, "I've been hearing from constituents for the entire 21 years I've been in the Congress about cancellation letters that they've been getting from insurance companies as soon as a child is born with diabetes, cannot get on your health care policy, gets sick, go for your second treatment you get a cancellation letter, you limit your benefits, you get annual benefits -- a cancellation letter from your insurance company." Old Jimmy here is just blowing smoke, and he knows it!
"So the fact of the matter is, we are trying to stop these cancellations. And now a few insurance companies have decided to use the Affordable Care Act to send out a new set of cancellation letters." Look, just like every other Democrat in Congress, old Jimmy voted "FOR" the requirement of Obamacare that actually calls for folks to lose their existing healthcare coverage. Therefore they all KNEW, including old Jimmy, that this was going to happen. And for him to now try to blame the insurance companies for something Democrats are responsible for, is nothing more than the typical hypocrisy exhibited by every single congressional Democrat.
"It's a trust issue and a management issue, isn't it?", ‘Bull Dog’ asked Jimmy. "Well, sure, paradise lost, paradise regained," he replied. "And when you lose something, you can find it again. And the president has admitted that he expects to be held responsible for regaining the Americans' trust. And I think he will." And naturally, he simply dismissed Barry's promise that people could keep their insurance plans if they liked them as being nothing more than a "sound bite" that he should have better explained. "And we have to take the time to explain it and I think the media ought to report those explanations." Right, it just all needs to be better explained.
The bullshit surrounding Obamacare and the Democrats’ involvement in it, continues to get deeper and deeper. They pulled every political trick in the book in their effort to get it ‘passed’, and in the end, were successful in their effort. So now they seem to be under the impression that they can repeat that success when it comes to convincing the American people that Democrats had nothing whatsoever to do with the millions of cancellation letters that have thus far been received, and the millions more likely to go out after the first of the year. But the sad truth of the matter is that they have had EVERYTHING to do with them. Democrats needed that to happen.
Or maybe it would be better to say that, all Democrats have to fear, is fear itself. That being said, there is nothing that would make me happier than to see the Democrats go down in flames next November, at least to the extent that ‘Dingy Harry’ would no longer be in charge of the Senate. But I am nowhere near ready to start counting my chickens before they’re hatched, since your average American voter is far too ignorant for me to begin doing that just yet. Every time I start listening to those on my side touting the demise of liberalism in general, and of the Democrat Party more specifically, all I am, in the end, is disappointed.
So while the failed Obamacare rollout has cast a bit of a stain on Democrats all across the country, it has been particularly rough, or so I’m told, on Democrats in New Hampshire, now considered by many as now being "ground zero" in the political war that's brewing. The three Democrats on the congressional delegation now face a problem that’s really nothing new for Democrats, being torn between remaining loyal to a corrupt White House and of being loyal to those who put them into office. They’re now being made to face some very angry constituents and having to deal with the political fallout from the healthcare reform bill that they all voted for.
But oddly enough, it was just yesterday that we heard Nancy Pelosi, leader of the House Democrats, insist that Democrats are not losing confidence in Barry "Almighty’s" ability to make Obamacare work. They don’t fear Obamacare’s effect on their chances in next year’s elections. "I don’t think you can tell what will happen next year" when voters cast ballots in the mid-term elections, but "I will tell you this: Democrats stand tall in support of the Affordable Care Act," Pelosi said NBC’s "Meet the Press." Well good for them, they’ve made sure they’re set. But when it comes to just how bad this thing is, what we’ve seen is just the tip of the iceberg.
Pelosi seemed quite confident that everything will work out, and she insisted that implementation of the healthcare overhaul "is an issue that has to be dealt with, but it doesn’t mean, ‘oh, this is a political issue so we’re going to run away from it.’" Jobs will be the major issue in the 2014 campaign, not Obamacare, she said. And Pelosi dismissed the nervousness of some her fellow Democrat lawmakers. "What I love about health care professionals is that they’re calm. And we must remain calm when we talk about the health of our country," she said. "You can’t be knocked for a loop just because somebody is playing politics." And who’s just playing politics?
So who’s going to end up being right here? Will it be old Nancy, here, when she says that the Democrats have absolutely nothing to fear and can rightfully be proud of Obamacare? Or, will it be guys like Karl Rove, when they say that Obamacare will devastate the Democrats in 2014. To tell you the truth, I don’t really think either one of these people has any credibility when it comes to predicting what the next election will bring. We, the ones who want to see this debacle of Obamacare forever done away with, are just going to have to wait another year to see if enough people are fed up with this bureaucratic nightmare to the point where they will actually make that possible.

The actual fact of the matter is that the vast majority of the racism that takes place in this country is perpetrated by people just like this racist bitch. After all, you haven't been reading about marauding gangs of whites going around killing old black folks for the fun of it. So when it comes to, as she herself says, that racists need to die in order for racism to end, shall we start with her?

Well it would seem that Barry "Almighty" will be able to reach yet another rather impressive, in a progressive sorta way, milestone as president. Word now comes to us that federal tax revenues will reach, what I think is the staggering amount of, $3 Trillion in 2014 for the first time in our nation's history. So says, and quite proudly, the White House Office of Management and Budget. And yet we still hear rumors, and on nearly a daily basis, that Barry will soon be demanding that we working Americans, the number of which has apparently been on the decline during Barry’s tenure, hand even more of our heard earned money over to the government.
The $3,023,004,000,000 estimated tax revenue is the most inflation-adjusted revenue the government will bring in compared to every previous year. What that means is that $29,673 will now be collected for each and every full-time employee working more than 35 hours per week, and it also represents $9,534 for each person living in the United States. Now imagine if you will how that money could be much better spent by those who are working to earn it instead of being forced to hand more and more of it over to a federal government that is now, quite literally, out of control. It has become the equivalent of bureaucratic money pit.
The last record revenue year was fiscal 2007, when the federal government brought in $2,899,644,380,000, adjusted for 2013 inflation. The 2014 revenue will show an increase of $123,359,620,000 over 2007. Barry "Almighty" and congressional Republicans agreed on a bill at the end of 2012 to increase the top income tax rate to 39.6 percent from 35 percent, and increase dividends and capital-gains tax rate to 20 percent from 15 percent. The measure also reduced exemptions and deductions for individuals making more than $250,000. And yet, we have still managed to accumulate, because irresponsible spending, a $17 Trillion national debt.
Now imagine the state that our economy might now be in if each and every one of those full-time employees had an additional $20,000 in their pockets with which to make purchases. But no, that money is needed to cover the costs of supporting the Democrat voter base, the parasite class. And it is further proof that what Barry is actually trying to do here is not to raise those on the bottom rung of the economic ladder up, but, instead, to drag the rest of us down. Such is always the goal of the socialism that Barry is so desperate to inflict upon our country. Wouldn’t you think that $3 Trillion would be more than enough to cover the cost of operating the government?
If simply covering the cost of operating the government was truly Barry’s objective here, that would be one thing. But it’s not; it’s nowhere near being that. You see, his real goal here, which has its basis in his plan to "fundamentally transform" America, is far more sinister. His plan, as well as being the plan of his fellow Democrats, is to do all that they can to spend this country right into oblivion. And the goal here is to bring our entire economic and financial structure crashing down on itself. And if we are truly stupid enough to elect another Democrat in 2016, be it Hitlery or anyone else, we can expect this plundering of our country to continue unabated.

Apparently everybody isn’t quite onboard with Barry’s call, on Thursday, for millions of canceled healthcare policies, as if by waving a magic wand, to be restored. Those lawmakers and activists of the far more liberal/progressive persuasion, have since been busy criticizing him for not holding firm on enforcing Obamacare. His decision to allow insurance companies to, essentially, ignore the law for a year and continue offering substandard coverage could now end up costing him the support of the left.
Some leftist loon by the name of Anna Galland, who’s the executive director of MoveOn.org Civic Action, said the members of her bizarre little group did not want Barry to bow to critics of the Affordable Care Act. "They don't want to see this law eviscerated by death by a thousand cuts. They want to see the law strengthened, they want to see the website work, and have the law do all the good things it's already doing," she said, adding there is "deep concern" about the proposed changes.
And then, of course, there was Sen. Bernie Sanders, that flaming Socialist from ‘The Green Mountain State’, who also said that the solution to the problem is not to undo Obamacare. Asking, "Do we want to encourage policies that are totally inadequate? No we don't." Adding, "We want to move toward a situation where everybody, regardless of income, of age has strong coverage." This doddering old dolt went on to say, "Am I in favor of policies which are inadequate? I am not."
Many in the leftwing media who have been highly supportive of Barry and his signature healthcare law and often lash out at his critics, have also weighed in. MSNBC’s resident weirdo, Ed Schultz, tweeted, "Ed's advice to President @BarackObama: Next time "you give it to them!!" And the popular leftwing blog Daily Kos has started a petition calling on Barry to start blaming insurance companies for the cancelations rather than apologize for people losing their current coverage.
"Some insurers are using confusion created by the new law to hoodwink their customers into enrolling in much more expensive plans," the petition reads. "The actions of some of these companies proves why we needed healthcare reform in the first place: insurance companies are greedy, and cannot be trusted. "It is time to set the record straight," it continues. "Tell President Obama to stop apologizing for the despicable conduct of private insurance companies, and hold them accountable."
Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer, meanwhile, observed that the left is really frantic about Barry's backpeddling on Obamacare because it represents all they stand for. "At stake," he wrote in the Washington Post Friday, "is more than the fate of one presidency or of the current Democratic majority in the Senate. At stake is the new, more ambitious, social-democratic brand of American liberalism introduced by Obama, of which Obamacare is both symbol and concrete embodiment."
But seriously folks, with this disaster called Obamacare now proving to be not even remotely close to being what the Democrats promised it would be, at this point, the best thing they could do for themselves, politically speaking, would be to go along with any plan that calls for it to be scrapped. Let’s face it, the only way that the Democrats were even able to get this debacle passed in the first place was through the rather artful use of every political shenanigan that was available to them.
