OFA – “We Made History” Tweet

by Steve MacDonald April 15, 2014

This is stupid on many levels but coming from smiley-faced fascist progressive pragmatists the statement itself contradicts the entire movement they live for.  To a Liberal there is no history.  There can’t be.  Forward?  Change?  Progressivsim does not rest on the past, it only drives forward blindly ruining the future.   And You can’t “make” […]

by Steve MacDonald April 15, 2014
Thumbnail image for The Cost of ‘Free’ Health Care

Vermont has embarked on a mission to create a single payer system.  They voted for it but have yet to pass a bill to pay for it.  I wonder why? “…Act 48 required Vermont to create a single-payer system by 2017, the state hasn’t drafted a bill spelling out how to raise the additional $1.6 […]

Data Point – Redistribution on steroids

by Skip April 13, 2014

After all, taxes just shovels money from one set of folks to a different set of folks.  And Saul Alinsky was all about, in “hiding” Socialism, moving the stuff from the Haves to the Have Nots.  The purpose was always to obtain the power to make that happen.  Kinda looks, with the premier Alinskyite devotee […]

The obligatory post: Sebelius resigns

by Skip April 11, 2014

At that level of any organization, one never knows in looking from the outside in and bottom up whether is was pre-ordained, self-determined, or “quit or be fired”.  In any case, HHS Secretary Sebelius has handed in that resignation.  $700 million and four years for a website that still doesn’t work (front end mostly, but […]

It adds a whole new meaning to ‘We are the 99%’ when a multi-millionaire-one-percenter like Shaheen votes with the destructive Obama ruling class agenda 99% of the time after she said she’d be a strong independent voice for NH.  Heck, she even repeated the ruling class ObamaCare lies?  Independent?  From what, Reality?

Democrat War On Work – Are You Pivoting From ObamaCare to Jobs Because ObamaCare Kills Jobs?

Thumbnail image for Democrat War On Work – Are You Pivoting From ObamaCare to Jobs Because ObamaCare Kills Jobs?

Yesterday I observed what has been observed rightly, from the right, for years.  ObamaCare can’t help but kill jobs. I know, wasn’t ObamaCare a jobs Bill?  Sure.  Everything Democrats passed in 2009 and 2010 was a jobs bill.  Commemorating post offices was a jobs bill.  Defunding abstinence education to pay for more abortions was a […]

The spin to make 7 million so-called sign ups appear like a major embrace of ObamaCare is, as with all things Democrat, deceptive.  We don’t really know the true numbers.  We also do not know how many people have a policy or if they have made a single payment.  Then there’s the eggs they had […]

Is the Obamacare Celebration an April Fool’s Joke?

by Don April 1, 2014

President Obama and his supporters are celebrating their Obamacare achievements.  Great, so the 40-50 million uninsured are now insured?   No. Their March goal was 7 million.  Well, insuring 7 million of the uninsured is a good start.  No, that didn’t happen. Their goal was revised to 6 million.  Well, insuring 6 million of the uninsured […]

Repeal It, Kill It, Gut It, Never Bring It Back

by Ed Naile April 1, 2014

The media pundits have declared ObamaDemocratCare “unrepealable” because it reached the phony milestone of trapping a couple million registrants who were kicked off real health insurance by ObamaDemocratCare. The idea behind this new media mantra is that the Republicans will adopt this lie as their own marching order into the next election and learn to […]

by Skip March 31, 2014

Annie Kuster is silent here, and Sebelius is silent here: “Kathleen Sebelius appeared to have no retort when confronted with Oklahomans’ dislike for Obamacare, and sat silent on air.   On Monday, Oklahoma City’s KWTV-TV anchor asked Sebelius about the “64 percent of Oklahomans [who] aren’t buying into the health-care plan. “They don’t like Obamacare, and […]

Inconsistency – hallmark of the Left

by Skip March 31, 2014

Can’t you all even get the narrative right? The Left is trying to redefine the language again so that OTHERS must supply another’s needs (classic “according to their needs” mantra) – this translates into “I demand that you pay for me”.  Once again, the Progressives are all willing to minimize the Constitutional meaning and power […]

Your lemons didn’t come close to making lemonade, Annie

Let’s just say that while Congressman Annie Kuster (D-NH) put in a magnificent political performance here, she kept that same upstanding level on WMUR’s 6pm news for the event that today was the last day for Obamacare sign up.  After all, don’t do it and you invoke the fines and penalties (although with the many […]

ObamaCare Surge? Cue Queue The Failures!

by Mike March 31, 2014

Surprise! The enrollment (sort of) deadline generated the expected surge of traffic, especially by people trying to get registered so they could take advantage of yet another “extension” available to people who had made a good faith effort. So, naturally, the contractors running HealthCare.gov pulled out all the stops, laid on extra capacity, and were […]

Notable Quote – Steve Mac Donald

by Skip March 27, 2014

On Obamacare’s illustrating of Democrat philosophy (emphasis mine): This isn’t even a law anymore.  It is lawless.  That state where there is no defining framework, no boundary, and most importantly no way for any person, business, municipality, or state to know if and to what extent it is operating in or outside the law. This […]

The Next Best Least Worst ObamaCare Strategy For Troubled Democrats?

There is a good deal of debate about what Democrats running for office should do about ObamaCare.  That, in and of itself, is instructive; there was an aggressive disinformation campaign against the legislations opponents, supporters of the bill lied or repeated lies, the President has had to break the law–literally, and now faced with re-election, […]

HB 413 – BradleyCare

by Skip March 25, 2014

As Steve points out (“Yes, The NH Democrat Majority House Passed Bradley Care“), the NH House has also voted to implement Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion.  I just figured that I’d point out the Republicans that voted for this – who seemingly have abandoned their belief that Republicans stand for limited government (this will be one of […]
