That's righttttttt! Lois Lehrners' "30,000 lost forever" e-mails have magically re-appeard. That will be a result of the rest of the dimocrats party scurrying up the gangplank and heading for the door(think: rat scene from "Titannic") She'll be revisiting Congress. Sooner rather than later

The great Obama experiment has failed

Remember the hope and change that we all were going to realize when we elected a black man to be President? Remember how Joe Biden bragged that Obama was "clean and a nice looking guy"--and he was black? Remember how Obama was going to reverse the negative image the U.S had around the world--while being black?

The thing we will remember about the Obama Presidency is that when you elect someone who has never accomplished anything outside of politics--you end up with someone who can't handle the job.

Most Presidents have something besides their political careers to their credit:

Jimmy Carter was a peanut farmer
George W. Bush was managing partner of a MLB team
George Washington was a land surveyor
Richard Nixon was a Lieutenant Commander in the Navy
Ronald Reagan was an actor

...and Barack Obama was a community organizer (which is code for a person who gets poor people to the polls to vote for Democrats). Oh yes, and he taught part-time at a college. Honestly, if your daughter brought a guy home who had those credentials wouldn't you think "she'll be supporting this guy FOREVER"?

Obama Can Reform Dark Money With a Stroke of a Pen

Obama Can Reform Dark Money With a Stroke of a Pen

Quote from article:

"President Barack Obama can issue an executive order today that requires government contractors to disclose their dark-money campaign contributions.
Why doesn’t he? And why don’t campaign-finance-reform organizations push for such a fix?

NY Post columnist: One did with with faulty information - One deliberately mislead the public

Notable:
Yet Gruber joined the HHS payroll right after Obama took office, in March 2009. He was paid $392,600 to consult on ObamaCare. Some might call this kind of arrangement “corruption.”

It’s like an expert witness appearing in court to swear that BP never spilled any oil while working as BP’s $400,000-a-year publicist.

Gruber made 1.5 million

Sorry Pelosi and Obama, your 400k consultant said they mislead us

Washington Post confirms Jonathan Gruber was a consultant for Obamacare - read this Hot Air post to see their argument unravel - warning, to see the lie unraveled does make your blood pressure rise.

Will Kasich Sign New "Stand Your Ground" Bill?

Thank You Professor Gruber!!

Professor Gruber, an architect of obimacare, has made at least three videos attesting to the fact that the Bill couldn't pass, without the stupidity of the American Voter! That must be how the rest of the politicians in the democrats' party see their constituents. Although some are pissed off about Grubers' accurate assessment, I'm glad to for once, to see a democrat elite telling the truth.

Shootings take us on A trip down memory lane

With the news tonight that two people were shot in the Kroger parking lot, it brings back fond memories of the experience I had in that exact spot. I posted the article below on Swampbubbles in July describing the fine people I observed. DTOM commented then that he knew the names of the people I saw--Pimp George, Susie the panhandler, and Trick Willy the homeless guy. I shudder to think that any of these citizens were involved in tonight's shootings.

I try to stay west of Talmadge Road as much as possible. But a family member was in town and from her days in Toledo, she was familiar with the layout of the Kroger store on Monroe and Secor. So I took her over and waited in the car, Wow--talk about your sociological experience!

First, I see this interesting fellow in a pimped-out Mercedes (gold trim, fancy rims) pull up to a spot in the far reaches of the lot. Sure enough--a woman who looked like she would be more at home on a section of Monroe Street in the heart of downtown--gets out of her car. The Mercedes dude, wearing his rust-colored zoot suit (with matching shoes), gets out of his car. They embrace, she gets into his car--and off they go into the night. I felt the need to immerse myself in a vat of antibacterial soap.

Why The Dems Lost 2/3 Of Their Constituants

Tagged:  

They didn't get their message out, IMO. Next time, I suggest they campaign a lot harder, on issues like: the war on women, playing the race card more effectively, voter intimidation, and so on. And of course, from now on the DNC will have to have a Black person on the presidential ticket, or they lose the 2/3s forever.

If Hillary runs against Warren, 2016 will be the most entertaining election in the Countrys' history! Even more so than the one earlier in the week.

Things I don't want to hear from the new republican majority

God love Scott Walker! He's been dragged through the mud by the liberals and unions and has come out as a winner several times! The rest of the Republicans should take their cue from him.

Now's the time for Republicans to take the Country in a 180 degree different direction from Obama and his minions. Will they have the guts? Let's hope we don't hear any Republican say the following:

"We must reach across the aisle." (Nope--just use your majority to get things done the way the voters who elected you want them done.)

"We must repeal and replace Obamacare." (Repeal--yes, Replace--no.)

WE WIN!! THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!

Isn't "Souls to the Polls" illegal?

Tagged:  

A couple of days ago, The Blade ran an article about 10 local black churches that will use vans to get their members to the early voting center this Sunday. This event will be called "Souls to the Polls." This is of particular interest to me considering that the clergy at my Catholic church was so extremely careful not to be political when Obamacare forced Catholics to betray their opposition to abortion and provide church and school employees with pregnancy termination coverage.

Much to many of his parishioners dismay, my priest explained that he couldn't talk at the pulpit to any specificity about the impact that Obamacare was having on religious freedom because the church was tax-exempt and couldn't participate in political discussion/activity.

So, how is "Souls to the Polls" not a violation of the law? It's certain that these church officials would say "we're only providing transportation." Yeah, sure.

Are we soon to witness the end of the petroleum era?

According to Dennis Gartman, a breakthrough in nuclear fusion by Lockheed-Martin is going to make petroleum go the way of whale oil. Here's the article from the Yahoo-Finance website: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/gartman-were-witnessing-end-oil-221420996....

Cleanup time

I am tired of the "shoot everyone until the last one standing" approach to commenting here. Over the next several months expect some changes - one immediate change is that if you can't follow the commenting rules you are off for at least two weeks - it started this morning and will go back in time 32 hrs.

It is not going to require much to do this - all of you have been warned, so there does not need to be any more "please clean up your act." The worst offenders know very well what the problems are and justify their breaking the rules because others break the rules. I am going back through my flags and anything over the last 32 hrs. A newbie may get some guidance, but those who have been here and have been warned, well don't expect any warnings.

Evidence supports Officer's story

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/new-evidence-supports-officers-ac...

The Dept of Justice had previously stated that there was not enough to bring charges of any Civil Rights violations.

Now experts have say that the autopsy report supports the testimony of Officer Wilson.

The damning evidence is that there is a wound on Brown's thumb with gun powder residue inside the wound and Brown's blood inside the Officer's vehicle. That suggests there was a struggle over the weapon in the car.
