Opie Dopey Pulls the Race Card

Full disclosure here (as if the title of this post didn't give it away already): I don't have much use for Oprah Winfrey and never have. I do however, have a lot of respect for the success she's had in her career. Obviously there are a hell of a lot of people out there who don't share my distaste for The Oprah.

That being said, Oprah's success (and Barack the Terrible's) is exactly what makes her recent comments about Barack Obama's travails truly odd and, frankly, racist:
"Probably it's crossed my mind more times than it's crossed your mind," Oprah replied. "...I think that there is a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he is African American. There's no question about that and it's the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody's thinking it."
But that's okay, as soon as all the old racists die, it'll all be better:
 "There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die," she said.
It's really amazing that a woman whose mouth runs so far ahead of her brain could've achieved the success The Oprah has achieved in her career. How does Opie Dopey think she managed to amass a fortune of $2.7 billion dollars with a television talk show? Here's a news flash for her: It took more than a few of those "older people" she wishes dead to watch her idiotic talk show to make her fabulously wealthy.  In a country where Blacks comprise about 15% of the population, she would be considerably poorer if she owed all of her success solely to black folks watching her show. Maybe she'll try to argue that there is inherent racism in the fact that she's not as rich as Alice Walton.

Likewise for Barack Hussein Obama. He hasn't achieved the "success" he's achieved in life without the help of a considerable number of rich white liberals. And those old racist folks Oprah wishes dead are mostly members of the George Wallace, Robert Byrd, J. William Fullbright wing of the Democratic Party. You don't get better than 50% of the popular vote in two presidential elections in a row without getting a whole lot of white folks to vote for you. In other words, ignorance and stupidity know no race.

I remember very clearly a day long ago -- February of 2008 -- when The Oprah packed the house at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa for then lesser-known Barack Obama who was running against Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination for president. Those 18,000 people -- the vast majority of them white -- who showed up to see The Oprah and Barry that day, arguably represented a major turning point in the primary race in Iowa. In fact some of us might argue that Barack the Terrible wouldn't have achieved the momentum he needed to overcome the Mrs. Bill Clinton juggernaut without The Oprah's rally in Des Moines -- thousands of White folks chanting "yes we can, yes we can" like the Obamabot Zombies they were. Many of these white folks have lived to regret that day.

There's so much you could say about the richest Black woman in the world who persists in seeing a bigot around every corner but the fact is that The Oprah couldn't have achieved the success she has if racism were as rampant as she apparently thinks it is. Neither could Barack Hussein Obama. And believe it or not Opey Dopey, it's because Barack Obama was raised a communist, grew up to be a leftist community organizer and has dedicated his presidency to dragging the greatest country on the face of the earth against it's will towards socialism that folks of all races oppose Barack Obama, not because of the color of his skin.Barack Hussein Obama is an equal opportunity destroyer and every economic measure says that Americans of all colors are worse off because he is president. Of course Oprah's station in life -- richer than 99.99999999999999999% of Americans of all colors -- tends to insulate her from the devastating economic effects of the presidency of Barack the Terrible and allows her to live comfortably, steeped in her leftist ignorance.

United Healthcare to Drop Thousands of Doctors From Medicare Advantage

Obamacare strikes again:

(Reuters) - UnitedHealth Group (UNH.N) dropped thousands of doctors from its networks in recent weeks, leaving many elderly patients unsure whether they need to switch plans to continue seeing their doctors, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.
The insurer said in October that underfunding of Medicare Advantage plans for the elderly could not be fully offset by the company's other healthcare business. The company also reported spending more healthcare premiums on medical claims in the third quarter, due mainly to government cuts to payments for Medicare Advantage services.
The Journal report said that doctors in at least 10 states were notified of being laid off the plans, some citing "significant changes and pressures in the healthcare environment." According to the notices, the terminations can be appealed within 30 days.

For those of you who don't understand health care, there are a couple of key points in this short excerpt:

1. "underfunding of Medicare Advantage plans for the elderly could not be fully offset by the company's other healthcare business."

The underfunding of Medicare Advantage plans is where the $500 to $700 billion to "fund" Obamacare is coming from. When all of us conservatives were telling everyone that Barack the Terrible "paid for" his pet plan to destroy American health care by first destroying Medicare, the leftists were screaming that we were liars. Not even two months into this bumbled roll out and everyone is finding out we were right.  Additionally, the Obamacare masterminds are at the point now where they are not even trying to hide that fact that Obamacare is a huge scheme where the young and healthy are overcharged (read taxed) to pay for health care for the old and unhealthy. I believe one of Obama's masterminds described this as the winners of the genetic lottery paying their fair share for healthcare.

2.  "doctors in at least 10 states were notified of being laid off the plans, some citing "significant changes and pressures in the healthcare environment."

Taking the entire health care system of a large country like the United States and completely turning it upside down tends to cause "significant changes and pressures" that cause large insurers to have to scramble to keep up which means rearranging plans and dumping doctors.  The Obamacare genie is out of the bottle and just like you can't put toothpaste back in the tube, you can't undo the mess that is Obamacare without ripping it out at the roots. It is every other failed government attempt to meddle in healthcare times a thousand and seniors aren't the only ones who are going to be paying for this with their health if we don't cut the head off the serpent.

Enter the Brave New World of "Free Speech" Under Barack the Terrible's FCC

Bet you haven't seen this on in the Obamabot Zombie leftist media:

There' been so much news about the total incompetence of Barack the Terrible and his masterminds regarding the abysmally failing launch of the worst biggest entitlement in the history of mankind that other news has tended to fall by the wayside -- not that this story is something the leftist Obama media has any interest in covering. But while head Marxist mastermind Barack the Terrible and his "health care" minion masterminds are demonstrating their total and complete incompetence, the equally incompetent masterminds over at Obama's Federal Communications Commission are devising a plan to co-opt our free speech:

Barack the Terrible's Non-Apology Apology

There's nothing worse than an arrogant, self-absorbed jackass. When that arrogant self-absorbed jackass is also disingenuous, bald-faced lying bastard who knows nothing, is wrong about everything, and refuses to admit it, it's arrogant self-absorbed jackass times ten. It should be clear to even the blissfully ignorant that this is what we have in the liberal's president Barack the Terrible. Given this, it stands to reason then that an "apology" from an ignorant, arrogant, disingenuous, self-absorbed, lying bastard is going to be a non-apology apology. And this is exactly what we got from Barack the Terrible. So let's parse this piss-poor excuse for an apology and see if you agree. First the "apology":

Obamacare Operator Fired while Incompetent Sibelius "Doesn't Work for" the American People

The other day Sean Hannity called the Obamacare 800 number and got a random operator. When he started asking her questions about the site, she was frank with him, telling him what all of us already know -- the program sucks, the site sucks and there are all kinds of problems with this roll out. As you can tell from listening to the call  Earlene Davis didn't tell Sean Hannity anything we don't already know about this train wreck of a program. What did she get for her candidness? She got fired. Kathleen Sibelius, however, still has her job.What does the the pompous bureaucrat have to say about Earlene Davis's firing? Nothing apparently. I guess no one thought it was important enough to ask her about or if they did, she simply punted. What does she have to say about her incompetence? This is what she has to say about her incompetence:

City Screws Citizens Twice on "Franchise Fee"

From the "they'll get you one way or another" department comes this story about the city of Des Moines, Iowa, which overcharged its citizens by $40 million for a fee they tacked on to utility bills. Des Moines is like damn near every mid-sized city run by liberals: It's not in great financial shape. So how do they pay this money back to their citizens?

My Tirade Against the Leftist Media Propaganda Machine and their Airport Monopoly

Why is it that EVERY airport in the good ole' US of A broadcasts second-rate cable news? 

Seems like the only "news" programs that run on airport screens are from the appendages of the Obama Administration -- CNN and MSNBC. Most of the time they are innocuous, However on this particular morning in an extremely busy terminal of one of the busiest airports in the country, I had the indignity of having to listen to Wolf Blitzer blasting over the PA for about thirty minutes after which I had to email airport mgmt. to complain. 

The exchanges in 30 minutes of "news" were positively hilarious. The first ten minutes of the "news broadcast" were consumed with Barack the Terrible's mea culpa on his crappy health insurance web site (crappy insurance, crappy web site). The important message about this topic?

Barack the Terrible's Big Lie: "If you like your health insurance, you can keep it ..."

By now, this lie has become one for the ages. And the lie became real once again for 300,000 Florida Blue customers:
Tallahassee | Citing costs associated with the federal Affordable Care Act, Jacksonville-based Florida Blue is canceling 300,000 individual policies. Florida Blue, the state’s largest health insurer, says the move is to offset the new health care law’s requirement that things like maternity and newborn care, mental health, substance abuse services, and emergency services be covered by individual and small market plans. Kaiser Health News reported that many canceled plans from Florida Blue, and other insurers across the country, fall short of the requirements laid out in the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as ObamaCare. The organization says many were purchased after the law was passed in 2010, so insurance companies knew they would be temporary policies. Impacted Florida Blue customers will be notified by mail. “We will provide our members recommendations for new plan options, and encourage them to contact us so we could help determine their best course of action,” Mark Wright, a Florida Blue Spokesman, said in a statement.
In other words, head out to the broken healthcare.gov web site folks -- your ass has been kicked to the curb by Barack Hussein Obama. Most Americans will still refuse to believe that this whole mess is completely by design. Barack the Terrible, socialist extraordinaire, has to completely destroy the health care system as we know to re-create it in his vision -- single payer, top down, government-centric totalitarian control of the health care system. There's no one who's more frustrated than you are about the broken health care system you are creating Barry? It is to laugh! You're a permenant member of the ruling elite, Barry. You'll NEVER have to actually deal with the havoc you are wreaking on our health care system.

Ted Cruz Returns Home to Eight-Minute Standing Ovation

Ted Cruz went home to Texas and received the accolades he deserved for taking a stand against Barack the Terrible and his merry band of free-spending socialists who want to drive our country into bankruptcy and abject poverty:
SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, a favorite of the conservative Tea Party movement, returned home to a rousing welcome in Texas on Saturday after his attempt to derail Obamacare with a shutdown of the federal government led to sharp criticism of his tactics as reckless and futile.
"After two months in Washington, it's great to be back in America," Cruz joked in speaking to a crowd of about 750 people in a packed downtown San Antonio hotel ballroom.
Cruz was greeted with an eight-minute standing ovation in an appearance organized by the Texas Federation of Republican Women. People in attendance, many of them wearing red to show their support for keeping Texas a conservative-leaning state, lined up to greet him.
The speech and another talk earlier in the day at a panel in Austin marked Cruz's first public appearance in his home state of Texas since his part in the showdown in Washington over the rollout of Obamacare that resulted in a 16-day shutdown of the federal government that ended on Thursday.
We have Ted Cruze, Mike Lee and Rand Paul to thank for leading the charge and getting the nation to focus for two weeks on the fact that we are on an unsustainable collision course with the economic collapse of this country if we don't get our fiscal house in order. They deserve all the applause we can give them and more.

ObamaBot Zombies and Others Surrendering Their Privacy Rights at Healthcare.gov

Yes, completely surrendering their privacy rights:
The launch of federal government's Obamacare insurance exchange, Healthcare.gov, has been plagued with delays, errors, and poor website design, even prompting USA Today to call it an "inexcusable mess" and a "nightmare".  Now comes another example of why the website's reputation is in tatters.  Buried in the source code of Healthcare.gov is this sentence that could prove embarrassing: "You have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding any communication or data transiting or stored on this information system."  Though not visible to users and obviously not intended as part of the terms and conditions, the language is nevertheless a part of the underlying code for the "Terms & Conditions" page on the site.
After creating an account on Healthcare.gov, users are asked to click an "I accept" button under some routine Terms & Conditions prohibiting unauthorized attempts to upload information or change the website.  Once users click the button, they may proceed to shop for insurance and enter detailed personal information.  However, when the Terms & Conditions page is visible, the hidden sentence mentioned above along with several others can be seen by using a web browser's "View Source" feature.  A screen grab below shows the visible Terms & Conditions page along with a simultaneous view of the code underlying it:

Food Stamp Recipients Loot Wal Mart Shelves

Last weekend, the food stamp card system crashed in 17 states. One of those states was Louisiana and the recipient class looted the shelves at a couple of Wal Mart stores while the system was down:

Shelves in Walmart stores in Springhill and Mansfield, LA were reportedly cleared Saturday night, when the stores allowed purchases on EBT cards even though they were not showing limits.
The chaos that followed ultimately required intervention from local police, and left behind numerous carts filled to overflowing, apparently abandoned when the glitch-spurred shopping frenzy ended.
Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd confirms they were called in to help the employees at Walmart because there were so many people clearing off the shelves. He says Walmart was so packed, “It was worse than any black Friday” that he’s ever seen.
Lynd explained the cards weren’t showing limits and they called corporate Walmart, whose spokesman  said to let the people use the cards anyway. From 7 to 9 p.m., people were loading up their carts, but when the cards began showing limits again around 9, one woman was detained because she rang up a bill of $700.00 and only had .49 on her card. She was held by police until corporate Walmart said they wouldn’t press charges if she left the food.

Obamacare Agency Spends $56 Million on Conferences in FY 2012

Obamacare has proven to be a abject failure: The half-billion dollar web site bombed; only 36,000 Americans have signed up for insurance through the exchanges when HHS predicted half a million (that's .00012% of Americans); there are calls for HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius's head in a platter from all over. Now we find out that the bureaucracy responsible for implementing the most far-reaching, invasive and onerous government entitlement -- one which Barack the Terrible promised would reduce costs for everyone -- spent $56 million on conferences in FY 2012:

PETA's Answer to the Redskin's "Controversy"

People for the Eating of Tasty Animals came up with a compromise the bloviating idiot Bob Costas could agree on. Perhaps he'll even bloviate on it during the next sporting event he covers:

Press, pundits and politicos, including the president himself, have put in their two cents about the Washington Redskins mascot, and now the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has offered up its solution: the potato.
The NFL team has come under renewed pressure to change its name due to racial implications, but Redskins.aspx” target=”_blank”>PETA suggested in an article Friday that the team could just simply change the mascot to the popular starch.
“Don’t change the legendary Redskins name. Just change the logo,” PETA’s senior editor Alisa Mullins wrote. “When you hear the word ‘redskin,’ what do you immediately think of? Potatoes, of course! And who could be offended by a harmless redskin [sic] potato — except, maybe, for the Yukon Gold lobby …”
Perfect! An idiotic answer to an idiotic controversy created by a bunch of idiots.

Republicans Negotiating the Terms of their Surrender on Budget and Debt Ceiling

Yes, Republicans are furiously negotiating the terms of their surrender on the budget and debt ceiling. The Senate has already caved. The House is about to follow.

The Republicans started out firm on the notion that they would not fund Obamacare .... until they weren't firm on it. Their fallback position was putting off the individual mandate for a year ... until it wasn't. Then, their fallback position seemed to be the elimination of one of Obamacare's onerous taxes -- the "medical device tax"... Then it wasn't. Who knows what the Republican's fallback position is now but it appears to be total capitulation to the Democrat's demands to continue to fuel Barack the Terrible's (and their) appetite for reckless spending.

Bob Costas Shoots his Mouth off on the Redskins Name "Controversey"

Americans who are into sports might tell you that Bob Costas is a "legendary sports broadcaster". To me, he's just a guy with a microphone and a camera whose mouth tends to run way ahead of his brain. It happened again yesterday during halftime of the Cowboys Redskins game. Here's the essential part of his little politically-correct rant:

Let’s start here: there’s no reason to believe that owner Daniel Snyder, or any official or player from his team, harbors animus towards Native Americans, or chooses to disrespect them. This is undoubtedly also true of the vast majority of those who don’t think twice about the longstanding moniker. And in fact, as best could be determined, even a majority of Native Americans say they are not offended.

Suppose the CEO of a Fortune 500 corporation spent half a billion dollars on a web site that has been up and running for two weeks and crashes nearly every time a customer tried to use it and didn't work any better after is was taken offline for a weekend to be fixed. That CEO would be out of a job. But Barack the Terrible and his terrible web site soldier on even though it's patently obvious to even the low-information Americans that Obamacare is already worse than everyone predicted.

China Warns Barack theTerrible about Defaulting on U.S. Debt

This story ought to embarrass every one of us:
China, the biggest foreign creditor of the United States, has waded into the American budget crisis, warning Congress that it must resolve the political impasse over the debt ceiling without further delay.
The Chinese Vice Foreign Minister, Zhu Guangyao, told America’s deadlocked politicians on Monday that “the clock is ticking” and called on them to approve an extension of the national borrowing limit before the federal government is projected to run out of cash on 17 October.
“We ask that the United States earnestly takes steps to resolve in a timely way the political issues around the debt ceiling and prevent a US debt default to ensure the safety of Chinese investments in the United States,”  Mr Zhu told reporters in Beijing. “This is the United States’ responsibility,” he added.
Forty years ago, these folks were a laughable third-world craphole. Now they are lecturing us about our debt. A bunch of communists hold the fate of our economy in the palm of their collective hand to the tune of $1.3 trillion -- that's trillion with a "T", Barry.

Well, we allowed Vlad the dictator -- a guy who presides over a legacy of tens millions dead in his country in the name of communism -- to lecture us on foreign policy. Might as well let the former third-world commie crap hole that regularly violates the human rights of its citizens in the most heinous of ways to lecture us on our debt. This is the world as it should be according to Barack Hussein Obama.

How "Partial" is the Partial Goverment Shut Shutdown?

Try 17%. Eight-three percent of the government is still up and running:
Everyone knows the phrase "government shutdown" doesn't mean the entire U.S. government is shut down. So in a partial government shutdown, like the one underway at the moment, how much of the government is actually shut down, and how much is not?
One way to measure that is in how much money the government spends. In a conversation Thursday, a Republican member of Congress mentioned that the military pay act, passed by Congress and signed by President Obama at the beginning of the shutdown, is actually a huge percentage of the government's discretionary spending in any given year. And that is still flowing. So if you took that money, and added it to all the entitlement spending that is unaffected by a shutdown, plus all the areas of spending that are exempted from a shutdown, and added it all together, how much of the federal government's total spending is still underway even though the government is technically shut down?

Iran's Puppet President Boasts of Dissing Barack the Terrible Five Times

Iran's Ayatollah puppet president Rouhani is boasting that he turned down five requests to meet with the liberal's president Barack the Terrible:
Rouhani said:
"Before my trip (to New York), the Americans had sent 5 messages to arrange a meeting between me and Obama, but I turned them down."
"Then they raised a plan for a brief meeting, but I didn’t agree (with it) much; we didn’t disagree with (the idea to have) a meeting, but its grounds weren’t prepared."
The Iranian leader also said that he had achieved his mission at the UN "to prevent a new war in the region," and he mocked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his strident speech earlier in the week, saying that Israel is merely frustrated that its own power has declined as Iran's power has grown.
The White House had stoked media anticipation last week by indicating the possibility of a meeting between President Obama and President Rouhani on the sidelines of the UN before Rouhani turned down the suggestion. That was the only known snub before Rouhani claimed to have denied Obama an additional five times. The two leaders spoke by telephone instead--the first such contact between the two nations in three decades.
Both of these guys are liars, one is the leader of a totalitarian state, the other is a community organizer (read liar and troublemaker) who is dragging a once-great country kicking and screaming into some kind of a totalitarian state. Given the fact that I have less experience with Rouhani being a liar than I have a with Obama being a liar and given the fact that the last big story before the government shut down was Obama slobbering all over Iran and the prospect of "peace" with a government that hates us all and wants us all dead, I'd have to believe Rounhani on this one.

Dr. Ben Carson targeted by IRS After Prayer Breakfast Speech Last February

Remember that prayer breakfast Dr. Ben Carson spoke at where Barack the Terrible and the dumbest VP in the history of the world were sitting right next to the podium from which Carson was castigating them? Tell me this is a coincidence:
Dr. Ben S. Carson went years without ever having a run-in with the Internal Revenue Service. But his good fortune changed after his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in February, the former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon said Monday night at an event with business leaders and elected officials in Alabama.
Alabama’s Yellow Hammer News tweeted Dr. Carson’s remarks from the annual Business Council of Alabama Chairman’s Dinner: “I had my first encounter with the IRS this year, unsurprisingly after the Prayer Breakfast.”
On the O'Reilly Factor on Fox News, Carson said that the IRS started out looking at some of his investment properties and when they found nothing there, decided to go for a full-blown audit where they found nothing as well. A coincidence? Hardly.

No Deal! Barack the Terrible won't Negotiate with Congress

Please don't tell me Boehner hasn't tried to negotiate with Barack the Terrible. It seems he's just not interested:
House Speaker John Boehner said President Barack Obama refused to negotiate in a meeting with top congressional leaders about the government shutdown, signaling a lack of progress on resolving the fiscal impasse.
As he exited a meeting today at the White House, Boehner said Obama must recognize that the U.S. has a divided government.
“The American people expect their leaders to come together and try to find ways to resolve their differences,” said Boehner, an Ohio Republican.
Obama met with Boehner and the other congressional leaders for more than an hour. The president said earlier that he was “exasperated” with some House Republicans.
“The House could act today to reopen the government and stop the harm this shutdown is causing to the economy and families across the country,” the White House said in a statement after the meeting. “The president remains hopeful that common sense will prevail.”
Barry has this backwards: We know from past experience that Johnny Boehner is more than willing to negotiate with Barry. But at the same time, Boehner realizes what a disaster Obamacare is as evidenced by the fact that today, the health insurance exchanges went worse than yesterday.  The "exchanges" in some states have fewer than one percent of visitors signing up.  It appears that the highest sign-up rate is a dismal 5.6% in Kentucky. It is clear that there are more "lookers" than "takers". Apparently the actual product isn't very popular. All this seems to be in line with the fact that most people don't need this monstrosity -- they already have health insurance. But that doesn't stop the statists from turning the health insurance market upside down for the sake of covering a handful  of Americans.

This roll out has been every bit the disaster some of us predicted. Clearly the best thing to do would be to defund this dog or at the very least put it off for a year and give the socialists time to re-group and get their act together while we work to get it scrapped. But as much of a failure as this roll out has been, Barack the Terrible is determined to engage in a selective government shutdown in order to push through the funding for this dog of a law.

In the middle of this "crisis", Barry found plenty of time to golf on Sunday and worthless Harry Reid didn't see fit to gavel in the Senate until 2PM yesterday when most of us had already been at work for six or seven hours. They are obviously not concerned about the shutdown. They want their health care takeover that was designed from the beginning to fail and create a situation where the government has to step in and nationalize the health care system. They are willing to take the government out of service to do it. Shame on the Barack the Terrible and shame on Harry Reid.

Who knows what the world would be like today if these young Americans hadn't given their all to defend freedom against Nazi tyranny 70 years ago. Four hundred and fifty thousand of them didn't return. This is the least we can do for these brave survivors of WWII.

Healthcare Exchanges Blow Up on First Day

Barack the Terrible's Obamacare exchanges didn't have a very good first day:

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – The online insurance marketplaces that are at the heart of President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul struggled to handle the wave of new consumers Tuesday, the first day of a six-month open enrollment period.

Let the Government Shut Down

Let the damn federal government shut down, I say. It's happened many times before and we're all still alive. Besides, if the federal government can't make it on the $2.2 trillion a year it takes in without borrowing out the wazoo, screw 'em. 

Barack the Terrible and his merry band of leftists have been busy trying to scare the crap out of everyone about the horrors that will befall all of us if the government shuts down. Barry bitterly complains about partisanship on the one hand while he claims Republicans want to "burn down the economy" by allowing the government to shut down. Other of the Democrat partisan political hacks have said worse. That stupid old bastard Harry Reid calls the Republicans "anarchists". Barbara Mikulski, the senate troll from Maryland blames the government shutdown that has not yet occurred on "the teabaggers" -- a vulgar and childish term I thought the leftists had gotten past. At any rate, Barbara the troll probably has the balls and the motivation to use them in the vulgar way intended by the term. If anyone on the Republican side had engaged in the types of partisan attacks Barry's buddies actually engage in, we wouldn't hear the end of it. But Barry's buddies are the worst partisans of all and that goes virtually unreported in the media.

Obamacare Launch to be a Disaster

Don't take my word for it, believe liberal news outlet the Washington Post:

Buying health insurance will be as easy as purchasing a plane ticket or shopping on Amazon, the president has promised.
Maybe, but perhaps not on Tuesday — the day that millions of Americans are supposed to be able to start buying coverage under the sweeping law referred to as Obamacare.
Widespread reports of computer problems and logistical glitches are casting a pall over what many supporters envisioned would be a triumphant day for the embattled program. State and federal health officials have said in recent days that some key functions of the online insurance sites called “marketplaces” will not be ready right away. Some of the consumer guides meant to help people sign up for coverage are not yet certified to do so.

Barack the Terrible: Stooge for Assad, Putin and now Iran

Like the emperor who is prancing around naked while his subjects are telling him how beautiful his new clothes are, the media are absolutely crowing about Barack the Terrible's second huge foreign policy blunder in as many weeks and trying to portray it as some kind of great foreign policy feat.

While Barry refuses to talk to Republicans in Congress as our country heads for fiscal disaster, he is slobbering all over the place at the prospect of warming up relations with a country whose Supreme Leader wants to see us all dead. In fact, I haven't heard him call Iranian President Hasan Rouhani an extremist but if I had a buck for every time he called Republicans extremists in the last couple days I'd be a frickin' millionaire.

You might recall that Barry has made repeated attempts to kiss the new Iranian president's ass. Ever since the Star Wars bar scene meeting (otherwise known and the U.N. General Assembly) Barack has been swooning at the prospect of meeting new "moderate" Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Rouhani has made the court jester who purports to be the president of the United States look like a fool by rebuking any and all of Barry's attempts at a face to face meeting. Rouhani has said he just doesn't have the time to meet with the so-called leader of the free world.

It's Official: Obama is Still Smokin' Crack

Or at least if he didn't smoke crack as a teenage commie druggie, he obviously does now if he thinks that the world is more stable now than it was five years ago:
(CNSNews.com) - In his address to the United Nations on Tuesday, President Barack Obama told the assembled leaders, "The world is more stable than it was five years ago."
He also claimed that al Qaeda does not have the capacity to carry out attacks like the one on 9-11,  but it "does pose serious threats."
Partly as a result of the U.S winding down two wars -- and because of U.S. cooperation with its allies and partners -- "the world is more stable than it was five years ago," but "dangers remain," the president said.

Crooked IRS Agent Lerner Retires on the Taxpayer Dollar

Not a bad racket if you can get it:

Illegally harass Tea Party groups using the power of your high position in the Internal Revenue Service then blame low-level employees in your office. Go in front of Congress and claim you didn't do anything wrong then improperly claim a Fifth Amendment privilege immediately after waiving it; be placed on paid administrative leave, get paid lots of money for sitting on your ass at home; then, when emails are uncovered that prove that you specifically authorized the harassment of Tea Party groups, retire on a fat government pension before someone fires your corrupt ass:

WASHINGTON — Lois Lerner, the Internal Revenue Service official at the center of the agency's Tea Party scandal, is retiring, the agency confirmed Monday.
Lerner headed the IRS division that handles applications for tax-exempt status when she was placed on paid leave in May. While she was in charge, the agency acknowledged that agents improperly targeted Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status from 2010 to 2012.
Lerner first disclosed the targeting at a law conference in May, when she was asked a planted question about IRS treatment of political groups. Less than two weeks later, she refused to answer questions at a congressional hearing, citing her constitutional right not to incriminate herself.
Republicans in Congress have repeatedly called for her to be fired. The IRS said in a statement that privacy laws prevented it from commenting further about an individual employee.
Yes folks, this is your government at work. We may now be stuck paying for this crook's defense even as we pay for her fat pension and benefits. And we'll probably never get at the fact that conspiracy to target Tea Party groups more than likely goes all the way to the tops of the executive branch. Can you say rampant corruption, Barry?

Man-Made Global Warming Proven to be "On Hiatus"

Remember all that "global warming" that people like Algore have been making tens of millions of dollars hawking like snake oil salesmen? Turn's out it IS snake oil, just like some of us have been saying forever:
It's a climate puzzle that has vexed scientists for more than a decade and added fuel to the arguments of those who insist man-made global warming is a myth.
Since just before the start of the 21st century, the Earth's average global surface temperature has failed to rise despite soaring levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases and years of dire warnings from environmental advocates.
It's not puzzle that "global warming" or  "climate change" has been BS all along -- not the actual fact that the earth warms and cools in cycles, but the notion that it is warming rapidly due to human activity and that we have to take drastic steps to reverse it.

Oddly enough, the period mentioned above is the exact span of time in which Algore has made most of his $200+ million telling us that the earth is warming at a rapid rate and it's our fault. Remember the polar bear floating around on an ice floe that he claimed was having its habitat melt right out from underneath it?

So we know Algore is selling this snake oil because it has been incredibly profitable to him personally. But Algore and other addled non-scientists aren't the only people who have been peddling this garbage, They've been supported by research from fraudulent science from fraudulent scientists who invented this crap for the money as well. There are literally  billions of dollars in research and grant money controlled by the political class that they've gotten their grubby little paws on. Many have been caught lying to keep the money flowing.  Now they've got some 'splainin' to do:
Now, as scientists with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change gather in Sweden this week to approve portions of the IPCC's fifth assessment report, they are finding themselves pressured to explain this glaring discrepancy.
You might call the fact that global warming is "on hiatus" (as the LA Times puts it) an "inconvenient truth" for the "global warming" Nazis. And it's a truth that's so self-evident that even they can't deny it.

Mrs. Bill Clinton's Security Staff Snatch Camera from Audience Member

And deleting pictures of the queen from them. It happened to Andrew Rothburg at a travel agent's convention:
A man in the audience of a travel agent's convention in Miami had his phone confiscated by a member of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's security staff who promptly deleted a photo the man took of Clinton while she was speaking.
According to the Miami Herald, Andrew Rothberg used his cell phone to take a photo of Clinton onstage during the American Society of Travel Agents’ global convention. Rothberg told the Herald that his phone was taken by security. The photo of Clinton was deleted and the phone returned to him.
Rothburg may not realize this but the Missus's security team did him a big favor. Having a picture of such hideousness on your phone could cause the thing to break,

Median Household Income $600 Less that in 1989, Number in Poverty Up Under Obama

Barack the Terrible is doing a great job with the economy. Median household income is less than it was when the last great president Ronaldus Magnus left office:
Middle-class families of today make less than middle-class families of almost a quarter a century ago, according to the Washington Post.
Census Bureau data on income and poverty shows that the real median household income, meaning a family’s total earnings, in inflation-adjusted dollars, was higher in 1989 than it was in 2012.
Near the end of the Reagan era, a middle of the road family brought home $51,681 in today’s dollars. In 2012, the average family made $51,017.

Record Number of Familes Recieving Food Stamps in the Obamanation

I hope Barack the Terrible is proud of this statistic:
(CNSNews.com) - A record 23,116,928 American households were enrolled in the federal government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—AKA food stamps—during the month of June, according to data released this month by the Department of Agriculture.
That outnumbers the 20,618,000 households that the Census Bureau estimated were in the entire Northeastern United States as of the second quarter of 2013.
According to the Census Bureau, the Northeast region includes Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Thus, in June, the households receiving food stamps exceeded the total combined households in all of these states.
The 23,116,928 million households on food stamps in June also outnumbered the 15,030,000 home-owning households in the entire Western United States in the second quarter of the year and the 18,018,000 home-owning households in the entire Midwest.
Didn't Barry just hold a press conference right in the middle of the slaughter at the Washington Naval Yard because he couldn't wait to talk about how great the economy was doing? Well here's just one more statistic that proves the economy sucks. If Barry's goal was with the economy was to sew dependence and despair, he's succeeding beyond his wildest dreams.

Lois Lerner's a Liar

As if we didn't know this already:
Congress's investigation into the IRS targeting of conservatives has been continuing out of the Syria headlines, and it's turning up news. Emails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee between former Director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner and her staff raise doubts about IRS claims that the targeting wasn't politically motivated and that low-level employees in Cincinnati masterminded the operation.
In a February 2011 email, Ms. Lerner advised her staff—including then Exempt Organizations Technical Manager Michael Seto and then Rulings and Agreements director Holly Paz—that a Tea Party matter is "very dangerous," and is something "Counsel and [Lerner adviser] Judy Kindell need to be in on." Ms. Lerner adds, "Cincy should probably NOT have these cases."
"Cincy should probably not have these cases>" Hmmmm .... I seem to remember that the Obama Administration in the person of IRS Commissioner Steven Miller, told us that a few rogue IRS agents in Cincinnati were responsible for this whole thing. Then  Lois got up and asserted that she did nothing wrong, right before she sought to assert her non-existent Fifth Amendment rights because she had already started to testify. In fact, it appears Lois DID do something VERY wrong:

Obamacare Exchanges not Ready

Thinking about about rushing out to the Internet to find your new Obamacare insurance in your state health care exchange on October 1st? Think again:
WASHINGTON, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Obamacare is likely to have a "rocky" enrollment start on Oct. 1 in some U.S. states, because of ongoing technology challenges facing new online health insurance exchanges, a leading expert told U.S. lawmakers on Tuesday. "At this moment, not a single state appears to be completely ready," W. Brett Graham of the Salt Lake City-based consulting firm Leavitt Partners said in testimony to a Republican-controlled oversight panel in the House of Representatives. He said states should be capable of providing "baseline functionality" when enrollment begins in three weeks. But he cautioned about the potential for delays: "Most, if not all, exchanges will experience a rocky enrollment period as they work to overcome both known and unknown operational challenges."

Which to Government Motors, naturally meant that we need to make a bigger, fancier, more expensive version of this dog that will presumable sell every bit as well as the smaller, less fancy, cheaper verion.

Barack the Terrible: Stupidity on Parade

In just a few minutes, the liberal's president of the United States of America will go on television and make a total fool of himself. Barry's speechwriters are probably at this very moment furiously writing Barry a new speech. Yesterday and over the weekend, we were led to believe that we were going to hear Barry, community organizer turned warmonger talk about our imperative to lob missiles into Syria. Now he is going to tell us that he, in his benevolence, has pronouced a "diplomatic pause".

What has really happened is that he has been played by a Vladimir Putin, dictator, master politician and former KGB spy chief, into making the Russians look like the heroes and the peacekeepers, giving Russia a toe-hold in the Middle East peace process -- something they haven't had in two generations -- and through his utter stupidity has allowed Putin to issue the former most powerful nation on earth threats about taking action against Syria. Barack Hussein Obama and the people he surrounds himself with are indeed every bit as stupid as rational people thought they were and more.

Mrs. Bill Clinton to be Honored by National Constitution Center on Anniversary of Benghazi

From the "now I've heard everything" department:
(CNSNews.com) – Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will present the National Constitution Center’s (NCC) 2013 Liberty Medal to Hillary Clinton during a Sept. 10 ceremony in Philadelphia, one day before the first-year anniversary of the terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya while Clinton was secretary of state. “The Liberty Medal recognizes individuals who have furthered the ideals of freedom, democracy, and equality, often against great odds,” NCC President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen said. “Hillary Clinton has devoted her life to expanding opportunities for ‘We the People’ not just in this country but around the globe.”
So let me get this straight: One of the people the GOP considers a top contender for the 2016 presidential race is going to honor this serial political crook who is, at this point, a shoe-in for the Democrat's 2016 presidential nomination, for "devoting her life to expanding opportunities for "We the People"? And one day before the first anniversary of the slaughter in Benghazi in which she played a key role in the neglect and incompetence that led to the deaths of four brave Americans including her direct report in the region? Is this some kind of joke? No these people are apparently serious.

RINO Puppy Dog McCain: Not Attacking Sryia would be Catastrophic

Tough talking RINO puppy dog John McCain emerged from his White House meeting with Barack the Terrible proclaiming:

Sen. John McCain said Monday that he and Sen. Lindsey Graham had "a candid exchange" with President Barack Obama on Syria, and warned that "the consequences would be catastrophic" if Congress voted against a military strike against President Bashar al-Assad for his use of chemical weapons.

"The consequences would be catastrophic because it would undermine the credibility of the United States of America and the credibility of the President of the United States. None of us want that."
"We had a candid exchange," the Arizona senator said, noting that he was encouraged by the Obama meeting. "We found some areas where we can work together, but we have a long way to go.”
Hate to break it to you Johnny. Apparently you've been in a deep slumber for the last two weeks, but your buddy Barack already irreversibly undermined the credibility of  the U.S. by his incessant dithering. We knew we were going to get to this place when he shot off his mouth a year ago and drew his "red line".

Apparently we don't "have a long way to go" Johnny, because you sashayed out of the White House and made Barry's case for him: That we have to bomb Syria so your 2008 opponent and current best buddy can save face.

With all due respect to this brave man's service in Vietnam, the reason Republicans can't win back the White House is because they nominate candidates like McCain.

Syria to Lobby United Nations to Stop "Any Agression" Against it

Calls Obama's proposed US action "an absurd use of force":

BEIRUT - Syria has asked the UN to prevent "any aggression" against Syria following a call over the weekend by US President Barack Obama for punitive strikes against the Syrian military for last month's chemical weapons attack.Washington says more than 1,400 people, many of them children, were killed in the world's worst use of chemical arms since Iraq's Saddam Hussein gassed thousands of Kurds in 1988.

The Proof that Obama's Congressional Approval for Syria Attack is Political

From a guy who would know: Barry the Terrible's big buddy David Axelrod on Twitter:
 Big move by POTUS. Consistent with his principles. Congress is now the dog that caught the car. Should be a fascinating week!
You can't tell me Axelrod and Barry aren't aligned on this. With support for action against Syria crumbling at home and abroad, Barry did what he does best -- find someone else to blame. Now he's set himself up to blame Congress for his lack of action when virtually no one supported the action he wanted to take in the first place.

Barry promised us "the most transparent administration" and he's failed in every way except one: This is the most transparently political administration in the history of the known universe.

Obama Makes Tough Decision this Weekend: No, not what to do in Syria: What Golf Course are we going to Play?

Barack the Terrible has had a rough couple of weeks: Stalling and dithering and leaking and not deciding and leaking and dithering and stalling some more. Finally he made a decision on Syria: Punt to congress. After that tough and gut-wrenching decision -- one that few presidents have the courage to make (he says sarcastically), there's only one thing to do: Go golfing:

Happy Labor Day!

It's Labor Day, that one holiday of the year brought to you by the labor movement of old in the United States. 

Yes, it's true: We have unions to thank for the fact that we are sitting on our asses at home today instead of working. Fact is, however, that these days union workers don't have a whole hell of a lot to thank their unions for and more and more workers are beginning to recognize this. Evidence of this is in the fact that private-sector union membership was down to a mere 6.6% in 2012 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Syria Mocks Dithering Idiot Obama

This was inevitable:

(Reuters) - Syria hailed an "historic American retreat" on Sunday, mockingly accusing President Barack Obama of hesitation and confusion after he delayed a military strike to consult Congress.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said tests showed Damascus had used using deadly sarin gas in a chemical weapons attack, and expressed confidence that Congress would do "what is right" in deciding on a response.

Iowa Democrats Thank God for Abortions

I guess the absolute absurdity of thanking God for the "right" to kill one of his children in the womb completely escapes them:

First of all, I think it's a little odd that these heathens would be beginning any event with prayer. Secondly, doesn't ripping the precious life of one of God's children out of the womb fall more into the category of Satan worship than thanking the Lord? I don't presume to speak for our Lord and Savior, but I don't think he approves of killing babies no matter what their age.

BTW, the two top Democrat candidates for Iowa Governor, Jack Hatch and Tyler Olson, had their heads solemnly bowed throughout Democrat activist Midge Slater's prayer.

Kids and School Districts Rejecting Michele "Evita" Obama's Crappy School Lunches

Obama Says he will Seek Congressional Approval for Syria Strike

The liberal's dithering idiot president has apparently made a decision on Syria: He's decided to seek congressional approval for military action:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials in the Obama administration and on Capitol Hill say President Barack Obama intends to seek congressional approval for action against Syria.

Obama will speak on the developments in Syria from the Rose Garden on Saturday.
The officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak ahead of the president
Good luck with this. So he's decided to try to maneuver himself out of the corner he backed himself into by trying to get Congress on board so he can blame them. Or else, he's decided he really doesn't want to bomb Syria and knows Congress won't approve it anyway, so when they turn him down, it'll give him a way out of the mess he's gotten himself into.

At any rate, this whole contorted circle-jerk has proven why you don't want a radical socialist in charge of foreign policy and military affairs. Let's review:

Syrian Kid Calls out Obama the Great and Terrible on Facebook

BREAKING NEWS: The latest in the saga of As the Syrian Attack Turns: Dateline The White House, Washington D.C, 1900 hours 8 minutes Central Daylight Time  8/30/2013: Sources close to the liberal's president of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, report that he still has not decided whether or not to carry out the cruise missile attack his administration has gone out of their way to describe in rectal exam detail on every form of electronic and print media imaginable.

Perhaps the most interesting development of note that has happened in this comedy of errors today is that Bashar al-Assad's son has called Obama out on his plans (or lack thereof) to attack his daddy's country. It's bad enough that our allies and enemies alike are dissing us over Obama's public hand-wringing about what to do with the Syrian corner he's backed himself into. But now the liberal's Dear Leader is being called out by an 11-year-old.

British Back Out of Action against Syria -- the Liberal's Incompetent President is on His Own

The British are out of action against Syria. The British Parliament voted Syrian action down just a few hours ago and David Cameron isn't a democratic totalitarian like Barack Hussein Obama -- he admitted defeat and won't pursue military action. This is quite unlike Barry who has had a year since his "red line" comment and has decided he doesn't need the consent of congress to war. The Frenchie Frenchmen are out as well. So this means Barry is going it on his own. Not only is Barry incompetent and over his head, he's a loner on the world stage.

So what is Barry going to do?

The President who Cried Wolf or why you shouldn't Elect a Dithering Fool to be Leader of the Free World

“The U.S. will respond to the use of chemical weapons in Syria but the president has yet to decide what that response will be”

This absurd headline on the Fox Radio 3PM newscast yesterday describes Barack Hussein Obama's position on action (or inaction) in Syria perfectly.

If the truth be told, Barry has done a lot of things when it comes to Syria. he has dithered around, he has trotted key members of his administration out to telegraph exactly what he plans to do to Syria should he decide to do anything, he has told us that whatever he decides to do, it won't include removing Assad. In other words what he will decide to do if he decides to do anything will probably be to lob a few cruise missiles apparently without the consent of congress, accomplishing exactly nothing.
