Obama: failure or success?

Obama acts like a tyrant. Does that make him worthy of Time's POTY award?

Let me say this plainly: This president is not a failure. He is a success! He knows exactly what demographic he should go to. The older generation has not yet figured out this method. He is going to the younger generation where the real battle rages. And that is where America must go if we are to win the future.

Why do we have a Medicaid program?

Obamacare wants the young and offers them a bad deal. They need not take it.

Star-Ledger (Newark, N.J.) headline reads: “ObamaCare fuels applicant boom for NJ Medicaid—Advocate hails 35% increase in October.” (Read the article here.) Almost 22,000 new applications were filed in October, up from 16,000 in September. Is this a triumph? Was a 990-page law needed to accomplish this? The taxpayers will have to fork over $5,000 per applicant to a Medicaid HMO—that’s $110 million—and what will the patients get?

Obamacare spells doom for Democrats

Obama acts like a tyrant. Does that make him worthy of Time's POTY award?

How serious are the problems with Obamacare, or the Patient Protection (racket) and (Not) Affordable Care Act? This will cost several Democrats their seats in Congress. Many Democrats won those seats (or won them back) in 2008 and 2012. Barack Obama promised the moon to the American people. Those Senators and Representatives echoed that promise. But those promises were false when the Democrats made them. And everyone who cares to know, knows this.

Nuclear option: pushing the button

What difference does it make to her?

Now, President Obama can nominate the Three Stooges to the federal bench if he wants, and get away with it. Why? Because last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid invoked the “nuclear option,” and the Senate voted 52 to 48 to change Senate rules by reducing the number of votes needed for cloture on nominees from 60 to 51 (which could include Vice President Joe Biden’s tie-breaking vote).

Common Core: Gates Unhinged

Common Core puts a worm into this apple.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group featured in its Sun Press/Sun Messenger local paper, a double opinion piece on Common Core Standards on November 14.  Absent from the favorable assessment were the particulars that expose the damaging aspects, namely that states will be required to surrender their diverse curricula for one set of educational principles, to undermine individuality and stifle students’ creativity and choices of study, limiting quality and parental choices.  It is also unconstitutional.

Obamacare delays enrollment

If you believe HHS delayed Obamacare enrollment just to give insurers more time to set rates, I'll sell you the Brooklyn Bridge

At about midnight last night, the government announced the latest in a series of cynical ploys. They delayed the period for open enrollment in Obamacare from 15 October-7 December 2014 to 15 November 2014-15 January 2015. How convenient! Eleven days after the midterm elections!

Healthcare.gov: technical disaster

Kathleen Sebelius

The site healthcare.gov is one of the worst technical disasters in the history of computers and their networks. The White House knew it would be a disaster and opened it anyway. Now many Democratic politicians are running, not walking, away from it. Oh, a few die-hard fanatics insist the site stay up. But those more in touch with their constituents, know better.

Obamacare to cancel 100 million policies

This shill for Obamacare might find himself cut off.

The Obamacare program did enough harm this year. Five and a half million holders of individual health insurance policies got letters canceling them. (Yours truly is one of them.) But next year, insurers will send such letters to employers of a hundred million people. And those employees will get those letters a scant three days before they vote for new Representatives, and a third of the Senate.

Operation Restoring Freedom Part Two

Benjamin Franklin, who wncouraged men to unite for freedom.

Spinning grassroots into gold may seem like a task for Rumpelstiltskin. But it may very well be the key to reversing America’s decline. The second part of this series will be presenting strategies and plans to overcome the regressive philosophy that is turning the land of the free into the home of the power-crazed elitists. The very first thing that We the People must do is to stop acting like victims and unite in a common cause – the cause to preserve our liberties and bring sanity back to government. This may also be the most difficult task to accomplish. It seems that the more liberty-loving we are, the less likely we are to unite. Egos and hidden agendas, coupled with my-way-or-the-highway attitudes, fuel disunity among fiercely independent people. The kind of cooperation that is needed to achieve unity is often not achievable once people are asked to get “behind” and idea or a strategy. This is the first obstacle that must be overcome.

Census data in 2012 jobs report false

Seal of the Census Bureau

News of Barack Obama’s big lie (“if you like your plan you can keep it”) has filled the airwaves, video streams, and e-mail lists for weeks. Now comes news of a bigger lie. Remember the report showing unemployment falling from 8.1 percent to 7.8 percent in August of 2012? Everyone who cared to know, knew that number couldn’t describe the anemic economy. Now we know why: that number had its basis in phony census data. That’s right: Obama’s Chicago governing style managed to corrupt even the Bureau of the Census.
