I call BULLLSHIT cubed

So as Gruber shows his sorry ass up in congress to speak truth to power, it looks like the strategy adopted by the scumbags that straddled us with Obamacare after a massive campaign of disinformation, lies, and falsehoods, is to pretend that Gruber was telling the lies when nothing could be further from the truth. I guess the progressives have chosen to save face and hide their abuse of power and criminal behavior by accusing the scumbag that was making fun of the American people by pointing out what progressives think of US tax payers of doing the lying. The American people have not been fooled, and they have voted accordingly.

This bait and switch shit that these democrats are now engaged in is classic. Man does the number of unlucky people thrown under that Obamacare bus keeps rising. Landrieu got fried the other day for and I am sure it was a response of her selling her Obamacare vote. The usual lefty moonbats are now actually saying she lost because she didn’t go left enough, which is just more of the same nonsense as Cummings pretending that Gruber was lying about how the demcorats lied to pass Obamacare. Remember that Obamacare was passed on a purely partisan vote that required major payoffs because that thing was exactly the disaster we have now waiting to happen.

While you watch the freak show unfolding in Congress, remember that every one of these democrats that pushed that abomination on us and are now acting all butt hurt and indignant, then told us we had to pass it to see what was in it. Don’t fall for the attempt to do damage control by acting indignant and the accusations that Gruber was doing anything other than pointing out what they all did. Fuck the lot of them.

More proof the WH was working with the IRS to target an enemies list

While the LSM continues to ignore the Obama Administration’s IRS scandal, a scandal that makes what Nixon did look like child’s play, and your average lefty progtard will parrot the “Faux scandal” meme every time they can get away with it, the truth is that ,a href=”http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/225970-watchdog-irs-withholding-docs-on-taxpayer-data-requests” target=”_new”>they have things they need to hide because they were abusing their power and breaking the law:

A watchdog group says the IRS is withholding documents between the agency and the White House that show inappropriate requests for taxpayer data, according to multiple reports.

Cause of Action, a nonprofit group, filed a Freedom of Information Act request asking for all correspondence between the IRS and White House about requests for tax returns of businesses or individuals.

The Treasury inspector general for tax administration has told the group that there are more than 2,000 documents potentially related to the request.

A court has said the agency must hand over the documents. But IRS officials have said that they will not release the documents, citing a part of the tax code that protects the confidentiality of individual tax returns.

It is not clear what is contained in the documents, but Cause of Action said they might be evidence of White House misdeeds.

“That indicates scandal,” said Daniel Epstein, a spokesman for the group.

“Now, potentially, there’s confidential tax information going from the IRS to the White House. Potentially — we don’t know, we’d like to see,” said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who has been a critic of the IRS under the Obama administration, said late Wednesday on Fox News.

Of course they are going to deny any wrong doing and lie about the fact that they are not abusing their power and breaking the law. The Obama WH, the big government bureaucracies that are replete with stinking progressive drones, and the demcorats in general, are doing this sort of criminal and illegal shit on practically a daily basis. The problem is that everyone, from the media which has abandoned its job of the watchdog of the American people to the majority of the political class, is all turning a blind eye to this shit. Too many of the people in the Obama administration should really be wearing orange overalls and working in a prison shop making license plates or making calls for companies selling crap or scamming people for some cause.

Black Nixon on steroids was unavailable for comment either because of golf or fund raising commitments.

I think it will come even sooner..

MRC TV has a piece up about how the demise of Social Security is coming far earlier than even the worst case projections put it at, but then again, as the first commenter pointed out, one has to wonder if these new projections even take into account the impact of Obama’s new executive order that would allow millions of illegals that have not paid or paid a pittance to now suckle at the government’s teat.

I am putting my faith in what I will be able to save in my own 401(k) plan, and not counting on SS for a penny. I have known that by the time I could collect from that failed system it would likely be belly up or rigged to pay nothing of value. Of course, all my planning to not need SS might be for naught if these progressives, after they collapse the economy and break everything else in their campaign to redress the ills their policies cause, decide that raiding private accounts is justified – because of “social justice” or some other such catchy bullshit.

Let the good times roll!

More Obamacare lies in perspective

The other day one of the sad libs I usually have the pleasure of running circles around was all in a huff and telling me how Obamacare numbers were up and things were finally coming together. I knew better than to believe the bullshit these propagandists peddle – this administration and the democrats have a history of lying about the facts and real numbers on things ranging from the billions they pissed away paying off their buddies in either the porkulus or the TARP shenanigans to the lies about unemployment or inflation numbers, and need we be reminded about how they lied to get the CBO to score Obamacare as something other than a fucking pile of shit with whip cream topping – and I went a looking for the real facts, and lo and behold, it’s more of the same:

With enrollment data now available for the second quarter of 2014, it is possible to construct a complete picture of the changes in health insurance coverage that occurred during the initial implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly known as Obamacare. The data show that in the first half of 2014, private health insurance enrollment increased by a net of 2,465,586 individuals. That net figure reflects the fact that 61 percent of the gain in individual coverage was offset by a drop in employer group coverage. During the same period, Medicaid enrollment grew by 6,072,651 individuals. Thus, while a total of 8.5 million individuals gained coverage, 71 percent of that net coverage gain was attributable to the Obamacare expansion of Medicaid to able-bodied, working-age adults.

And remember, we are all paying premium dollar – rates for all of us have been skyrocketing, and anyone saying otherwise is either full of shit or such an aberration that statistically they can be discounted – for this Medicaid expansion. The question begs to be asked: wouldn’t it have been cheaper and simpler to just enroll all these people into Medicaid in the first place? Then again, the agenda as we have been told by Gruber was never to actually make healthcare more accessible, more affordable, or better in any way, but to create an unsustainable and expensive system that would milk the productive dry and gave government an undue power to run people’s lives while it lasted. After all, the plan is to collapse the system and then institute a government controlled single payer system. Then the progressives can really set up those camps they always pine about for their enemy lists.

While we were eating Turkey and watching football…

The fucking crooks in DC, busy bankrupting this country as part of the plan of destroying it the current president’s administration has been on, printed over $1 trillion of new money to pay off debt obligations on money they borrowed:

The Daily Treasury Statement that was released Wednesday afternoon as Americans were preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving revealed that the U.S. Treasury has been forced to issue $1,040,965,000,000 in new debt since fiscal 2015 started just eight weeks ago in order to raise the money to pay off Treasury securities that were maturing and to cover new deficit spending by the government.

During those eight weeks, Treasury took in $341,591,000,000 in revenues. That was a record for the period between Oct. 1 and Nov. 25. But that record $341,591,000,000 in revenues was not enough to finance ongoing government spending let alone pay off old debt that matured. The Treasury also drew down its cash balance by $45.057 billion during the period, starting with $126,568,000,000 in cash and ending with $81,511,000,000.

The only way the Treasury could handle the $942,103,000,000 in old debt that matured during the period plus finance the new deficit spending the government engaged in was to roll over the old debt into new debt and issue enough additional new debt to cover the new deficit spending.

This mode of financing the federal government resembles what the Securities and Exchange Commission calls a Ponzi scheme. “A Ponzi scheme,” says the Securities and Exchange Commission, “is an investment fraud that involves the payment of purported returns to existing investors from funds contributed by new investors,” says the Securities and Exchange Commission.

“With little or no legitimate earnings, the schemes require a consistent flow of money from new investors to continue,” explains the SEC. “Ponzi schemes tend to collapse when it becomes difficult to recruit new investors or when a large number of investors ask to cash out.”

If you or I, or for that matter any private entity tries to pay off its debts in this way, we will end up in jail. The government however keeps pretending money grows on trees so the political elite can keep their vote buying schemes and scams going long past the expiration date. And their mouth pieces in the LSM just go along because of Black Jesus and their allegiance to donkey dick. Socialism as practiced by the progressives is the bane of humanity and the harbinger of real dark times. Mark my words, but look at what many of them are doing.

Adding up 2 and 2..

So Judicial Watch has finally managed to fight through the bureaucratic nonsense and the illegal maneuvering and lies from the age of Obama DOJ to obtain documents related to the Fast & Furious scandal using FOIA requests, and have posted what they have received on their site. Something already found since these documents were turned over on November 18th, lends credence to the belief so many of us have that the WH and the DOJ where actively working together to suppress any and all reporting on their reasons for and involvement in the criminal Fast & Furious scandal. Specifically we have an email detailing the collusion to force the one reporter really looking into this crime – Sharyl Attkinson from CBS – to stop. And I am willing to bet it doesn’t end there. In the end we will hopefully find the truth despite the obfuscation. Holder wearing an orange jumpsuit, at a minimum, would be kharmic, but I suspect a presidential pardon will be issued.

Of course they are his allies on this!

For now, that is. Yeah, health insurers are stepping up to help Obama defend the despicable Obamacare law, and that should surprise no one. The law is terrible for consumers, but great for both government that wants to get its mitts into the health insurance decision making process and money, as well as a financial boon – at least in the short term – to the evil insurance companies that the left created this law to fight against. Any libtard that for a second believed the donkeys passed this law to finally break that supposed monopoly the evil profit making insurers had on healthcare should do a double double take when hearing this news.

The political left and their agents lied about how costly and dastardly Obamacare was going to end up, as Hal’s Gruber post points out, and created a monster that, as I mentioned, at least in the short term, was incredibly profitable for insurers. They had to do that to buy enough support, or at least to keep the insurers from campaigning against the idiotic and costly law. These insurers are now raking in the cash from the repeated rate hikes they justified on this egregious law and pushed on their members, dropping costly people that then end up on government controlled rolls paid by huge tax payer subsidies en masse, and basically loving the situation they are in right now. Of course they don’t want the law repealed just yet.

The fact is that all Obamacare has accomplished is to make government’s reach and power on issues of healthcare insurance and benefits far larger than it ever ought to be, while enriching the insurers the political left pretended to be fighting against. Those that will pay are the productive people that got repeatedly lied to about how Obamacare was going to keep their plans, doctors, or costs down, while shafting the evil companies and the rich to give a whole bunch of others supposedly free healthcare. Yeah, sure.

The snake oil salesmen of yore are alive and well. These days they masquerade as champions of the little people and worship a donkey. The idiots that get a boner from all the class warfare shit are lapping it all up, and asking for seconds, even as they get ass raped without the benefit of a reach around. Wellcome to expensive mediocrity bitchez!

Slackers on the rise

Frankly I am surprised that as many as 40% women, 28% men, 39% youth have admitted that they don’t want a job, in a system that’s clearly bloated and inefficient, robbing the productive to buy votes, and that tragically favors receiving assistance over working.

You eventually will run out of productive people willing to be fleeced, as the recent election results here in the US show. Those altruistic do-gooders the left counts on to keep power are all for a massive socialist nanny state, but only as long as they don’t have to really pay for much or any of it. Hit them in the pocket book, like so many of the left’s initiatives have since Obama and the donkeys took power, and sooner than later, they will balk at it. Most of the people interviewed in the past election exit polling efforts pointed out they were pissed that they got lied to about who would really foot the bill for Obamacare and the fact that the donkeys constantly kept pretending they cared about fixing the economy only to do things that made if worse for anyone but the connected few.

Before the usual collectivist twits jump all over my post, I admit that I believe that every society needs some social framework to protect those that really need it. I also believe such a system should ONLY support people temporarily, and then the support should go to those that can’t work and those that work hard and hit a rough spot. What we have today is insane. It is nothing but a vote buying scheme subsidized by the productive for the democratic party. Giving people that make it a generational thing or that pop out kid after kid to collect money from the government, is rewarding bad behavior, and has been proven to only encourage more of that behavior. Rewarding the things we as a s society should want less of is why we get such a large number of people admitting they would rather not work in the first place. And I bet that for every 2 or so people that admit they don’t want to work, there is another that feels that way but won’t admit it. And the trend shows the number of moocher will keep growing larger and larger, with the takers demanding ever more be given to them because of socialization of the idea that the things they demand other spay for them are supposedly their right to have.

When the majority of your people feel neither shame nor regret at mooching of the productive, you are doomed. The system is unsustainable. In the end it will collapse, leaving those truly in need with no support, and leaving everyone else worse off. But then again, this is not the concern of the people that like this system and benefit from it. They are well positioned to profit even from the collapse, and actually believe it would be an opportunity for them to gain even more control, power, and wealth.

Forced charity is still bullshit

The new pope is making the case that caring for the poor doesn’t make you a communist, and he is right. What can be argued makes you a communist, or if you want to be pedantic and stick to the definition that communism means the state owns everything, what it makes you is a collectivist douchebag, is when you expect government to do it after it uses force to confiscate the earnings of others, and all under the pretense it is doing so to help.

Fuck the lot of you slavers. If you want to care for the poor use your own money. That’s what makes it nobel. Speaking of using their own money, that cult in Rome can really help the poor if it sold off some of that wealth it has and used that instead. Know what I am saying pope?

It sucks to have a shitty religion

Just yesterday, because my company announced changes to our benefit enrollment plans and opened up enrollment this week, I was having a discussion with a hard core lefty and Obama supporter about the fact that the costs have yet again gone up, the plan offerings have gone down, and providers have yet again been restricted. In addition to now making every employee with healthcare that has a spouse with access to her own plan (from their employer) basically pay a fine, one that amounts to the difference of having a spouse pay for her own plan, they jacked up premiums by 12% (after similar jumps for the past 3 years), widened the various plan’s donuts (that portion you have to pay before the plan kicks in again) by anywhere from 10-25%, and jacked up copays. So here is this Obamacare supporting supposedly educated moron, complaining about how he now had to pay more to cover his spouse, at the same time as his plan’s rates went up, his donut had widened, and his copays had been jacked, and worse yet, his doctor no longer was on the plan for some reason, and then blaming it, of all things, on the insurance company he used. Blah blah blah – bad insurance company! I lost it

Despite the writing being on the wall for years now and the whole fiasco of a government healthcare takeover hitting him smack between the eyes, he doesn’t get it. We have had countless articles like this one, showing how Obamacare was going to wreck the industry, cost all of us more, provide less quality care, restrict access, and most importantly, going to end up being used by petty bureaucrats of the usual liberal variety as a tool to subjugate those pesky and ungrateful serfs. Anyway, when I pointed out that the fault lay with the idiotic law, and cornered him with the facts to prove so, he did what all liberals do: a double take, and then returned to the talking point that they always use which is how evil insurance companies screw people over, so government was the only entity able to do the right thing for the people. That’s when I asked him if he was putting his faith in that government which is responsible for idiotic things like this or this, and pointed out that other examples are in abundance of stupidity and pain that makes whatever the insurance companies do, even when they engage in it out of malfeasance, look tame.

I basically pointed out to him that the difference between progressives, or whatever they call themselves these days, and people like me amounts to progressives being willing to bend over, grabbing their ankles, and letting the usual suspects ass rape them, over and over again, all so they could stay true to the cause. No matter how blatant the lies or how outrageous the bullshit, the progressives stick to the “social justice” nonsense and ignore reality. That was the end of the conversation. And that was simply because he didn’t like the pillars of his faith challenged. Liberalism is a mental disorder, and one that causes a lot of harm, I tell you. In the mean time we all get to suffer and pay more for it, because of these idiots.
