Obama

Notable Quote – John Hinderaker

by Susan Olsen December 27, 2013

“In Democrat World, there are no millions of Americans who have lost their health insurance because of Obamacare, or millions more who have seen their premiums rise because they are forced to pay for coverage they don’t need, or who have been deprived of the doctors they prefer. In Democrat World, the only problem is […]

“You’re picking my pocket and then you’re asking me for a handout”

by Skip December 26, 2013

“Why are the Republicans willing to “own” the perceptions that they hate the military?” This has reminded me of a post that I have, thus far, failed to post.  I will be rectifying that Real Soon Now (a “Pournellism”).  In the mean time, read this from a US Military veteran when asked for money in […]

Relentless

This is a great review of Obama’s abuse of the term relentless, and how, frankly–like most else that comes from this Presidents mouth–it doesn’t mean a damn thing, and everyone on the planet except Obama, the Media, and the Obamazombies know it. The article is actually about the lack of enforcement regarding sanctions against Iran, […]

Show me the Money!?  Here it is.  DC to real world “Income inequality” since Democrats took control of Congress in 2006; and then add Obama and Boom!  (and all during the worst recession in US history?  Isn’t that what the Democrats called it?)  No recession in DC.  It’s good times! At least now you know…they […]

Thumbnail image for Herr Obama und Frau Sebelius Roll Out Health Care Fascism For Real

Forbes …Thursday, December 12 will stand as one of the most lawless acts yet committed by this administration. The White House—having canceled Americans’ old health plans, and having botched the system for enrolling people in new ones—knows that millions of Americans will enter the new year without health coverage. So instead of actually fixing the problem, […]

Some observations on Obamacare from VodkaPundit

by Skip December 13, 2013

Simply, Bright and Shiny Objects become lost in the Memory Hole…and one wonders why President Obama is now the 2013 recipient of Politifact’s “Lie of the Year”? (emphasis mine): Still, what are we getting for our money? In 2008, the promise was to save each family of four an average of $2,500. In 2009, the […]

Fake Sign Language Interpreter Inadvertanly Provides Relief?

by Scott Morales December 11, 2013
Thumbnail image for Fake Sign Language Interpreter Inadvertanly Provides Relief?

It turns out that the sign language interpreter at the Mandela memorial was providing no more meaning than the flailing limbs of an epileptic Jim Carrey skit. But there is a bright side, perhaps a heavenly bright side. On one hand, it’s terrible that those hard of hearing or deaf may have missed out on […]

Obama can’t even tell the truth on his Government Motors bailout?

by Skip December 9, 2013

Once again, we see that Obama just makes stuff up – and says what is necessary to fit the political occasion of the moment: “When I took office, the American auto industry – the heartbeat of American manufacturing – was on the verge of collapse,” said Obama. “As president, I refused to let that happen.

So, Obama hates volunteer fire departments (of course, where’s the Union?)

by Skip December 9, 2013

Washington Times Now, little more than a year after the president’s re-election, his job approval rating has fallen among all segments of the American electorate. But it has fallen the most among those who did the most to elect him. For example, according to a new Gallup compilation, Obama’s job approval rating among Hispanic Americans […]

Once again, Government has acted to both split up families and have smaller ones if they survive

by Skip December 4, 2013

As Rush points out, it is the Left that has been, continues to, and will continue to attack what used to be seen as the main building block of both Civil Society and our Republic – the traditional family of a committed husband/ father and wife / mother that own the main responsibility of raising […]

Once again, the push to make companies simply another part of Progressive Government

by Skip December 2, 2013

As I said here, Obamacare is the Progressive capstone to force otherwise Free people to take care of others – not out of kindness but out of fear.  Progressives, being the incremental socialists they are, previously have pretty much co-opted what used to be genuinely charitable organizations (now called ‘social services organizations who pretty much  […]

Notable Quote – Dr. Thomas Sowell

by Skip December 1, 2013

Those who want to “spread the wealth” almost invariably seek to concentrate the power.  It happens too often, and in too many different countries around the world, to be a coincidence.  Which is more dangerous, inequalities of wealth or concentrations of power? – Dr. Thomas Sowell, professor of Economics, author, syndicated columnist The prototypical example […]

Big government begets big bureaucracies with budgets the bureaucracies want to see made bigger.  To that end these tin-pot dictators of their pencil-pushing fiefdoms exercise power to whatever extent they can, to the misery of everyone else.  It is what Jefferson meant in the Declaration when he wrote “He has erected a multitude of New […]

I thought Obama nationlized student loans to ELIMINATE the profit motive

by Skip November 25, 2013

As part of Obamacare, the Feds nationalized the college level student loan programs – and a lot of Leftists complained about the profits that banks and other loan brokers were making (sound familiar – they’ve been saying the same thing about insurers and the healthcare industry).  Too much on a vulnerable population (and we heard […]

Notable Quote – Dinesh D’Sousa

by Skip November 24, 2013

This has produced a whole set of conservative punditry essentially lecturing Obama on things like, “Obama, don’t you realize that confiscatory taxation does not produce economic growth?” “Oh, Obama, don’t you realize that by blocking oil drilling in America you aren’t going to create jobs?” “Oh, Obama, may we advise you that Assad, the dictator […]

Getting it Right on the “Nuclear Option” – Part 2

by Skip November 22, 2013

Steve has part of it right: This is about Reid helping Obama add additional liberal judges to the DC Circuit court, guaranteeing a policy advantage in perpetuity. Certainly that forms a bulwark that will protect Obama’s legislative agenda – any lower court appeals has to run through it.  The Supreme Court gets a whole lot […]
