In the people’s great city of Detroit, where credentialed liberal ideologues have been running the show for more than 6 decades, things have not been going so well. OK, I am fucking around when I act sarcastic like this. Detroit is a disaster of epic proportions. The left created an unsustainable model that robbed the tax payers and incentivized business to move elsewhere, while the elected officials pissed away any and all prosperity. So now … Read more

Over at the Hoover Institution journal, they have a damning article, appropriately titled “The United States of Envy”, where they give us a clear picture of the left’s strategy for the coming election:
In advance of the 2014 election, the Obama administration has drawn the political discussion away from its unpopular and flawed healthcare plan, usually called Obamacare, to bring public attention and support for increased income redistribution. President Obama openly encouraged envy
It is because of facts like the following:
Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.
That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work — in the private sector — and did it week after week after week.

The other day Black Jesus and the sycophants that follow him around looking for any chance to suckle his cock were all atwitter and telling us how the ACA had enrolled 7.1 million people – a number I think is fake as hell – doing their victory dance, and avoiding giving any details that would leave any reasonable person to conclude that this was all an attempt to put about a ton of lipstick on … Read more
This past weekend Matt Drudge of the famous Drudge Report website started a firestorm that had all the usual credentialed LSM idiots thinking they had scored a huge hit against a man they have hated for being instrumental in showing the LSM’s hypocritical status as nothing but a DNC propaganda machine. The controversy started with a tweet from Drudge about having paid what he labeled a “Liberty tax” in the case of the Obamacare penalty. … Read more
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
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
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
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
