Six Months Later, It's Worse Then We Thought

From the Washington Examiner:

» Obamacare won't decrease health care costs for the government. According to Medicare's actuary, it will increase costs. The same is likely to happen for privately funded health care.


» As written, Obamacare covers elective abortions, contrary to Obama's promise that it wouldn't. This means that tax dollars will be used to pay for a procedure millions of Americans across the political spectrum view as immoral. Supposedly, the Department of Health and Human Services will bar abortion coverage with new regulations but these will likely be tied up for years in litigation, and in the end may not survive the court challenge.


» Obamacare won't allow employees or most small businesses to keep the coverage they have and like. By Obama's estimates, as many as 69 percent of employees, 80 percent of small businesses, and 64 percent of large businesses will be forced to change coverage, probably to more expensive plans.


» Obamacare will increase insurance premiums -- in some places, it already has. Insurers, suddenly forced to cover clients' children until age 26, have little choice but to raise premiums, and they attribute to Obamacare's mandates a 1 to 9 percent increase. Obama's only method of preventing massive rate increases so far has been to threaten insurers.


» Obamacare will force seasonal employers -- especially the ski and amusement park industries -- to pay huge fines, cut hours, or lay off employees.


» Obamacare forces states to guarantee not only payment but also treatment for indigent Medicaid patients. With many doctors now refusing to take Medicaid (because they lose money doing so), cash-strapped states could be sued and ordered to increase reimbursement rates beyond their means.


» Obamacare imposes a huge nonmedical tax compliance burden on small business. It will require them to mail IRS 1099 tax forms to every vendor from whom they make purchases of more than $600 in a year, with duplicate forms going to the Internal Revenue Service. Like so much else in the 2,500-page bill, our senators and representatives were apparently unaware of this when they passed the measure.


» Obamacare allows the IRS to confiscate part or all of your tax refund if you do not purchase a qualified insurance plan. The bill funds 16,000 new IRS agents to make sure Americans stay in line.

Howard Dean Wants to Change the Subject

I don't blame him. If I were running as a Democrat, I would too



Stimulus Reality



I believe that if you gave $111 Million dollars to some street rapper, he could 'create or save' more then 55 jobs. If you consider some of the current crop of "music" stars, they have a posse of people to do all the various jobs that need to be done. Kanye West probably employes 55 people just to wash his cars and make runs to the liquor store. Maybe we should just give him the money and make a reality show about it. Couldn't do any worse and would certainly make interesting TV.

Obama Removes God From Declaration of Independence

I doubt this was just a slip of the tounge or accidental oversight by someone who went to Harvard to study Constitutional law.

President Obama in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, September 15, 2010


Here's the words to the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Hmmmm.....

Lifestyles of the Rich and Liberal

Lifestyles of the Rich and Liberal

"(Gore) embarked on a career in the private sector that would balloon his net worth into a substantial fortune, in the $100 million-plus range. At the same time, he began a second career as an anti-global warming crusader that won him a Nobel Peace Prize and an Oscar, but allowed him to use an endless procession of jet planes and motorcades as he went to a series of Save the Earth rallies, at which he urged people to live in a green and more modest manner, build smaller houses, use less heat and power, and drive and fly less.

In 2008, he acquired a houseboat, a 100-foot custom-built Fantasy Yacht estimated to cost between $500,000 and $1 million. In 2010, he bought a fourth house, a seaside estate in California, spending almost $9 million for a “gated ocean-view villa .  .  . with a swimming pool, spa, and fountains .  .  . wine cellar, terraces, six fireplaces, five bedrooms, and nine baths in more than 6,500 square feet.” In 2007, a study by the Tennessee Center for Policy Research revealed that Gore’s house in Nashville “devoured nearly 221,000 kilowatt hours in 2006—more than 20 times the national average,” that his monthly gas bill averaged $1,080 and his electric bill $1,359. “Why would anyone need a fourth mansion?” asked the Huffington Post, which called “Gore’s commodity addiction” at odds with his professed belief in “simplicity of living, care for other beings,” and concern for the state of the earth.

All this was true, but at four houses, (two of them mansions), along with one boat, he was still a mansion short of John Kerry, the Democrats’ nominee in the 2004 cycle, who, when he married Teresa Heinz, widow of John Heinz, the Republican senator, fell heir to all this in one swoop. And some swoop it was, consisting of spectacular digs in five first class settings: the Heinz family house in Fox Chapel near Pittsburgh; a mansion in Georgetown; a beach house in Nantucket; a ski lodge in Idaho (shipped over stone by stone from Great Britain); and a $6.9 million town house on Boston’s Beacon Hill. The combined square footage of these spreads is unknown, but they had an aggregate value of almost $30 million when he was running for president in 2004.

Al Gore owns four homes, one boat, and gorges on kilowatts while urging the world to make small carbon footprints. John Edwards crusades for the destitute while building a palace. John Kerry promotes higher taxes while dodging those on a $7 million yacht he bought in a recession. Michelle Obama urges young people to reject high-paying jobs in the business world for nonprofits and community service, while indulging a taste for designer couture, expensive vacations, and designer sports sneakers, which she wore while feeding the poor."

The Summer of Recovery?

What Did You Do Over the Weekend?

The media is all worked up about Glen Beck's march and have spent hours of airtime dissecting his message and meaning. But Muslims hold a Quds Day rally in Washington DC and I haven't heard a peep from the media. Here, Abolfazl Nahidian, Iman of a mosque in Manassas VA educates us on how the Jooos were behind the September 11 attack as a pretense to occupy Muslim land.


Of course, Medea Benjamin of Code Pink was also a featured speaker.

Not Being in a Union is a Human Rights Violation...or Something

How far left can Obama go? Turns out, pretty far. The Obama administration is reporting to the United Nations that American Unions are having a hard time attracting people. And apparently in the eyes of the U.N. that's a human rights issue. Not sure if who this makes look dumber, Obama or the U.N.



Hmmmm.....




It's Not Fraud if a Member of Congress Does It.

Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D)-eny says she is just sooo busy and implies she doesn't have time to review such trivial issues as fraud. I hope that voters provider her with the time to find and review the missing documents.


Arrogance piled upon corruption. Term. Limits.

Islamic Borg




Muslims are the equivalent of the Borg in Star Trek: The Next Generation. For those of you who aren't SiFi fans, the Borg traveled the Galaxy demanding that everyone assimilate into a Borg and therefore the Borg "Collective".

During a visit to Cologne, France, in 2008, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke to a group of 20,000 Turks living in Europe. He told them, “I understand very well that you are against assimilation. One cannot expect you to assimilate. Assimilation is a crime against humanity.”

Why does Erdogan call assimilation “a crime against humanity?” It is because the “humanity” he embraces includes only Islam’s believers—i.e., non-believers are unworthy of inclusion. Thus, believers in foreign lands are instructed to isolate themselves—for the sake of purity—from non-believers.

What many people fail to understand about Islam and Muslims’ failure to assimilate “to become part of something greater” is that Muslims are embracing “reverse assimilation.” This is the process by which the influence of the host population is eventually marginalized due to the disproportionately high growth of an immigrant population which then seeks to impose its beliefs on the host. Simply put, it is the guest who comes to a host’s home, grows his family until it outnumbers the host’s family and then takes over that home.

What we fail to understand is that, to Muslims, becoming “part of something greater” means the natives surrender their individual identity and way of life to Muslims.

In 1948, the world community unanimously agreed to a UN declaration that human rights are universal. In 1981, Muslim countries distanced themselves from this, claiming Sharia law was controlling, thus limiting such rights primarily to Muslim men. That same Sharia law is now being applied in host countries—including the U.S.—under pressure from growing unassimilated Muslim populations.

Denmark dropped its very liberal immigration policy once the government recognized the dangers of failed Muslim assimilation within its borders. Comprising 5% of the population, Danish Muslims settled in no-go zones, while consuming 40% of welfare benefits.

From the "I Told You So" Department...

Obama's 'Car Czar' Steven Rattner, has written a tell all book, full of juicy details that will no doubt come to haunt Obama in the 2012 election cycle.

From the key insider details that will be endless discussed by the political talking heads, this statement pretty much sums it up:




Amen!


...
"This does not mean that Americans have always honored those principles rightly or that America has ever been fully permeated with the essential Christiantheology. It means that Americans for generations have passed down a set of values, principles, and practices that honor integrity over greed, frugality over conspicuous consumption, industry over dependency and liberty over coercion. There may be other cultures capable of sustaining a reasonably sound democratic government and free market economy, but the American Judeo-Christian culture undergirded a government and an economy that have arguably been the most successful in all of history.

Time Magazine Sees the Light


'Obama tastes like chicken'?


Time magazine switching sides and joining the media crowd that are saying the emporior has not clothes. I bet Obama is wondering what happen to all those people in the media who worshiped him.


"The entire American spirit is being broken."

Seriously?

Seriously? I mean...seriously?



Where does Obama find these people? Seriously.

Obama's 1% Solution

Arizona Now Has ‘Whopping 30’ National Guard Troops and 15 Billboard Signs Warning Citizens About Drug Cartels Operating on Public Lands

(CNSNews.com)Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said requests by Arizona law enforcement personnel and Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) for 3,000 National Guard troops along the state’s border with Mexico have been answered so far with 1 percent of that number deployed there this week.

“We have a whopping 30 [National Guard troops] this week that are showing up,” Babeu told CNSNews.com. “It’s less than a half-hearted measure designed to fail.”

But the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has placed 15 signs along a 60-mile stretch of Interstate 8 that links San Diego with Phoenix and Tucson warning travelers of drug cartels and human trafficking operations.

If This Concerns You, You're a Racist

Leader of Hamas still wants to destroy Israel, but the good news is that he has come out in support of the ground zero mosque.
