The costliest war the left stuck us with

Is without a doubt the war on poverty. And like every war the left has been involved with since WW2, it has been a miserable loss for America and the American tax payer. From the article:

Today, the U.S. Census Bureau will release its annual report on poverty. This report is noteworthy because this year marks the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnson’s launch of the War on Poverty. Liberals claim that the War

Looking at the future Obamacare promises us all

As if you needed more proof that government will do far worse than any private entity overseen by government, we find out that according to one of the whistleblower in the VA scandal case, government’s investigation of the bureaucratic machine’s failure finding no fault, is nothing but an attempt at a whitewash or a cover-up:

Attempts by the Department of Veterans Affairs inspector general to absolve the agency of blame in patient deaths are

Obamacare not free, and kills jobs – rehash

Those of us that pointed out Obamacare was going to hit everyone, but especially small businesses, hard in the pocketbook, but then also kill jobs, should feel a measure of vindication now that the LSM has been forced to admit that the truth is Obamacare has killed a lot of small business jobs and sucked big money out of the economy, but there is no joy in this information making the light of day … Read more

Why tell little lies when you can get away with big ones?

While I will admit that anyone making the case that there is plenty of competition for all the lying done by this WH, the argument can be made that the ludicrous claim they are transparent in their dealings and want an independent press can be seen as taking the cake. With so many key Obama people, all under investigation, destroying subpoenaed evidence, or the history of Obamacare and the lies and vote buying that … Read more

Get Off The Couch, You Fat Fu@K

It’s a fine line and never static, between personal freedom and personal responsibility, and if one had to choose I usually lean more on the side for freedom. Thankfully, it is rarely an either-or, so both hats can be worn.

I have written posts in the past on PSA’s, clever hard knocking PSA’s that grab you by the short hairs, push you off that fence, and smack you right in the face with the reality … Read more

This “IS” how collectivism always plays out, idiots…

Surprisingly, in a parody I think most leftist, including the people at the WaPo, will miss, they have an article titled “Rare diary gives details of life under Khmer Rouge“, which describes the beautiful agrarian revolution brought to Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge. From the article:

Nearly 40 years ago, hunched on the floor of the wood-and-leaf hut he was forced to live in away from his children, Cambodian school inspector Poch Younly

Hoist By Their Own Petard

Let’s remember, for just a moment, how Obamacare was passed. It was cobbled together by a team of industry insiders to cater to all the special interests. It was then sent to Congress, where it would be honed and passed. But when Scott Brown won the election in Massachusetts, they suddenly did not have a filibuster-proof majority. So they rushed it through on a budget reconciliation. As a result, the bill contains a lot of … Read more

Dueling Obamacare Decisions

Obamacare is dead!

This morning the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit released its much awaited opinion in Halbig v. Burwell. In a 2-1 opinion, the Court held that the Internal Revenue Service regulation authorizing tax credits in federal exchanges was invalid. Judge Griffith, writing for the court, concluded, “the ACA unambiguously restricts the section 36B subsidy to insurance purchased on Exchanges ‘established by the State.”

Oh, wait. It’s merely pining for Read more

The Obama economy

If you doubt that the things the left does and claims to do to help us are having the exact opposite result, check out ZeroHedge’s post. In one month the country lost 523K full time jobs, which were replaced with almost 800K part time jobs. Do I need to mention what signature Obama progressive policies are behind this shift, or is it sinking in for people that think if government says it is free, … Read more

Video Monday: Takei and Hobby Lobby

I bookmarked these two video over the weekend. The first is a TED talk from George Takei. While I’m not fond of TED talks — they often cross me as smug and overly confident in their points — this one explains why George Takei still loves the country that interred him during the war:

This comes close to … Read more
