I don’t care if it is at the state or federal level, it looks like government is broken. Let’s take a look at the case where a NC IT employee sent out a traffic alert blaming women drivers, rain, and Obamacare. That employee was promptly fired for the un-PC message. In the meantime, the state of NC’s the Obamacare health exchange, which uses the fed’s government’s website, has managed to sign up only one … Read more
Where does the time go? It has already been one year since the music threads here at RTFLC were revived. Throughout that time all those who have participated have, I hope, then equally entertained and enriched by the experience. I am happy to keep it going, but now I think it is a good time to take a look back at where we have been.
No real surprises tonight. As predicted, corporate cronyist and all-around despicable Democrat Terry McAuliffe won the Virginia governor’s race, although it turned out to be much closer than expected. McAauliffe is up by one point with 98% counted. Polls a couple of weeks ago showed a double digit lead. There may be many reasons for the narrowing of the polls — receding anger over the shutdown, rising anger over Obamacare, the natural tendency of polls … Read more

The FBI agent suspects terrorism, but is not aware that the nemesis is actually death on a … Read more
Four years ago, on the eve of Obamacare, David Goldhill wrote one of the best pieces about healthcare reform. If you didn’t read it then, you should read it now because it is still one of the best things written about healthcare.
As the resident law and order guy there are few recalcitrant’s that I admire. Generally speaking I got little patience for rule breakers, most of them are liberals anyway who feel privileged and special, that somehow rules apply to the other guy. But every once and awhile, somebody ups and does something monumentally awesome and daring, figuring he has to have elephant size stones to even attempt such a feat, you gotta tip your hat, … Read more
I’ve been holding back on commenting on Friday’s shooting since I wanted to wait for facts to come out. Much hay is being made of the shooter’s crackpot views about the New World Order and the fact that he obtained his guns legally. Of course, this tells us very little since most gun violence does not involve political views at all and involves guns obtained illegally, according to the FBI’s own research. Focusing on these … Read more
That’s frog for “To set an example for the others“, and that’s precisely why this WH will never, ever, give Snowden any form of clemency. In fact, if they ever do, Snowden is advised to decline, albeit politely, under the expectation that they are lying to him so they can get him, and then, they will punish him. Nobody lies as often and with such aplomb as the members of this “The most … Read more
Can you imagine a revelation like this by a republican not causing a firestorm? WTF is it with these people? How can Black Jesus say shit like this and it not causing some furor? From the article:
This will not go over well for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner.
