One set of rules for thee

And willy-nilly enforcement of rules for my buddies and me, and as has the standard with the crooks running the country, they are hard at work obstructing any investigation of their cronies:

FBI agents working alongside Utah state prosecutors in a wide-ranging corruption investigation have uncovered accusations of wrongdoing by two of the U.S. Senate’s most prominent figures — Majority Leader Harry Reid and rising Republican Sen. Mike Lee — but the Justice Department

Can’t hide bad news forever…

Looks like the paper dragon is about to get some serious pain, as the Chinese economy no longer can hide the crap it was doing to pretend to have annual double digit growth. Too many Chinese firms are overextended and can’t repay their debt, so the Chinese government, whom had been playing games for decades to keep them up and running despite the fact they should have gone belly up, no longer has the … Read more

Obamacare keeps on giving.. (UPDATED)

Been a while since I pointed out how well Obamacare was working out for all, so this update, is due:

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told a House panel Wednesday that nobody knows how many Obamacare enrollees have actually paid their health insurance bills.

“People are buying a product in the private market,” Sebelius told the House Ways and Means Committee, which was holding a hearing on the 2015 HHS budget. “As

What’s the fucking mystery?

So CBS Detroit has an article titled “Voting Records Raise Questions After Mummified Body Found” where they wonder how this could happen. Seriously? Fucking Michigan is one of those places where the Democrat machine is so powerful it can even get the dead to come out and vote. There is a reason they don’t mention which party she voted for. If she had voted for a republican you know it would be national … Read more

Can’t say I am surprised

I have dealt with plenty of libs that have made the argument that stupid rednecks vote against their own interests when they don’t vote for nanny state democrats, the assumption being that nanny state democrats and their massive vote buying scheme is something that benefits people the left feels are too stupid to do things on their own. And you bet that rednecks, along with minorities, are all seen as people that can’t do anything … Read more

Tell the lie enough times….

Obozo was in my state yesterday stumping for money and more blue adulation to stoke his massive ego, and one of the things he praised the state for, in his speech, was the minimum wage hike the donkey controlled political machine foisted on an already abused private sector. The reality on the ground in “The People’s Republic of Connecticut” is that decades of democrat control have devastated the economy. That article is from early … Read more

It’s about keeping power, baby!

Hal has a post dealing with the AG telling state AGs to enforce laws as they see fit in which several commenters pointed out that this was a terrible idea. Well, the reason it is terrible is simply that it leads to stuff like this:

The Obama administration is set to announce another major delay in implementing the Affordable Care Act, easing election pressure on Democrats.

As early as this week, according to two

Damage caused by the ACA is all made up!

The last few months have resulted in us all being bombarded with revelations like this one, proving that the Obamacare is an epic disaster. I can’t say i am surprised to find out that the employer mandate will impact even the public sector negatively. I now am convinced that this bill was written to destroy the healthcare system and the economy, so the collectivists could swoop in and take a permanent hold on power … Read more

Why do we need new rules for this?

I seriously was baffled that we have to pass new laws to punish government workers abusing power at the IRS. If you have been living under a rock, this is about the IRS specifically, by orders from up on high, targeting the enemies of the Obama administration for political reasons. From the article about the new laws:

A comprehensive tax-reform plan House Republicans will unveil this morning takes dead aim at what Republicans perceive

That cure for “Too big to fail”..

The 2000 plus pages monster produced by Dodd and Frank, the crooks that put together and vehemently defended the framework that left the entire mortgage lending and banking industry open to disaster, then pretended only they could fix it, has resulted in even more emphasis on the “Too big to fail” entities:

The charts below show that both the number of US small banks (which we define as banks with $10 billion or less
