It went from Obama got Bergdahl back and deserves your worship, to it was someone else is responsible now that I am getting hammered for doing this stupid thing, to oh shit!, they are on to us, so lets double back on what we said to deflect the anger.

Gallup has a poll/study titled “In U.S., Depression Rates Higher for Long-Term Unemployed” which makes the claim that “Mental health poorest among those jobless for six months or more” as seen here:
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The longer that Americans are unemployed, the more likely they are to report signs of poor psychological well-being. About one in five Americans who have been unemployed for a year or more say they currently have or are
The next big bubble that will burst, if the wholehousing market or government money printing & incessant borrowing leftist agenda, and forced anti-savings money policies, which the Europeans have adopted, doesn’t blow up on us yet again, will be the student loan bubble. There is another $1.2 trillion of tax payer liability, waiting to blow up as the economic policies of the nanny staters create even more unemployment for the … Read more
Ezra Klein’s Vox endeavor is a mixed bag. Sometimes it has some really intelligent articles. But with 30-some posts a day, it occasionally posts some really dumb shit with very little critical thought. For example, they recently posted about a deeply flawed study claiming female-named hurricanes kill more people than male-named hurricanes because sexism (a notion I debunk here). And today, they post this article arguing that we should ban spanking.
The stupidity of … Read more
What’s the “THAT” that I am referring to? I wrote before about that snow job they tried to use to hide the damage done by the left’s policies. Well, others are also pointing out that the members of the DNC controlled LSM have been desperately spinning ever worsening economic data in order to help their incompetent marxists-fascist nanny stater fellow travelers ruining the economy from receiving their due:
The big news Thursday was that
As with everything about this administrations, people were rewarded for mismanagement while we had rampant abuse of power, I mean frightening abuses like this one, and of course, delays in care correctly pointed out as death panels.
The left is desperate to pretend that this is a preview of Obamacare. Yeah sure. That’s because the bureaucrats that will run Obamacare are not the same low rent, power hungry, delusions of grandeur … Read more
So, it seems that according to the NYT, whom I will admit is neither impartial or trustworthy when it comes to reporting the facts and truths about things the left does, that there was a ruling, not by any court but just by the rogue IRS agency that would deny employers the ability to not offer healthcare:
WASHINGTON — Many employers had thought they could shift health costs to the government by sending their
The left, including our own Right Thinking leftists, have been telling us how bad the income inequality has become, thus justifying their believe they should be allowed to play god, and providing data from the fabled class warfare book recently put out by Thomas Piketty director of the Paris School of Economics and a self avowed marxist class warrior to make the case for their wealth redistribution schemes.
Pickity’s work makes the claim that income … Read more
As we discover how bad the VA medical rationing scandal under the Obama presidency is and the VA admits at least 23 people died waiting for care (and that number is likely far higher), I am hearing a ton of collectivists defenders of Obamacare trying real hard to distance Obamacare from the way the VA healthcare system was being run. Don’t let that happen. Back before the health rationing problems and the deaths that resulted … Read more
