Harry Reid Receives Obamacare Verdict: Gets $4,500 Increase in Cos

Harry Reid liked the insurance he had but he couldn’t keep it and now he has to pay $4,500 a year for less coverage.  True, he and his wife now have now get free contraceptives and baby care and prenatal care but Reid is older than air and twice as polluted.

“Under Obamacare, my insurance costs me about $4,500 more than it did before.  Yes, because it is age-related and it wasn’t like that before.”

Reid was defending his giving of special consideration to his staff.  But if Harry and his staff truly believe Obamacare is great, why do they fight so hard to be exempted from it?  Because now that it’s passed, they know what’s in it.

“I followed the Affordable Care Act.  It is the law. The law says that if you have committee staff, leadership staff, they stay where they are. If you have other staff, which is most everyone, they go to the exchanges.”

So far, Reid is the only congressional leader to exempt his staff.  Both Boehner and McConnell have said they will not exempt their staffs and their staffs weren’t for the bill.

Forbes prepared a study which shows that tens of millions will see a huge rate hike…just like Harry.

California County Suspends the Constitution and Bill of Rights

Santa Clara County, the heart of the Silicon Valley has revoked the Constitution along with the Bill of Rights.  Norina Mooney, who has spent the last 20 years of her life working for Santa Clara County, made a comment to a fellow employee at the water fountain about the millions who has had their insurance cancelled by Obamacare.  Just a short while later, she found herself in her supervisor’s office, being ragged on about her derogatory statement about Obamacare.

The commissar told her that in the future, if she felt mthe need to criticize “The One” or any of his policies, she would have to leave government property to do it.  The commissar explained that politics has no place in the office.  Mooney finds this very strange, since the office is filled with Obama memorabilia.  And at election time, the employees wear Obama clothing.  This seems to indicate that politics in the office is perfectly acceptable as long as they are the “right” politics.

Pacific Justice Institute president Brad Dacus noted:

“Just when we thought the disastrous ObamaCare  roll out couldn’t get much worse, the county of Santa Clara is compounding those problems by claiming that criticism is off-limits,” Dacus said. “Liberals and conservatives alike should be able to agree that this type of censorship is chilling and unconstitutional.”

Pacific Justice sent a letter to the county commissars, who blew it off.  They are looking to file  lawsuit

EXPLOSIVE New Development in Washington Naval Yard Shooting

Navy Yard Shooting

Navy Yard Shooting

Bipartisan outrage swept through the in the Senate as  Elaine Kaplan, of the Office of Personnel Management, testified that the company that ran the background check on Washington Naval Yard Shooter, Aaron Alexis, did not even attempt to get a copy of his arrest record from the Seattle police, but rather relied on the state record, which is very generic and did not include Alexis’ history of anger management problems.  That would have sent red flags into the air.

Both Republicans and Democrats were shocked by the disclosure.  The Democrats are in a precarious position here, as it is their party who have dropped background checks on illegal aliens,  Navigators in the Obamacare program, and whose president’s administration has warned companies, through the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission)not to run criminal background checks on prospective new employees.  They can feign outrage at the USIS for this oversight, but what happens when we begin seeing crimes committed by those whose backgrounds were intentionally not checked as a matter of policy by their party?

Claire McCaskill, D-Mo, took aim at Kaplan.

 “Well, if a police department won’t give us a report, we’ve checked the box.”

“Now, I get it that we can’t go out and do one-on-one on every application for clearance.  But the notion that you’re calling what you’re doing quality control, Ms. Kaplan, is probably, I think, offensive.”

Kaplan replied:

“Yes, we all missed something, to be sure, but we did what was required.  We conducted the investigation that was required by the investigative standards. … Should we be required to get police reports, for example? Should we be required to get mental health information even from someone who has a secret as opposed to a top secret clearance? All these things need to be looked at. But it was not, in our view, a case of malfeasance … We believe the contractor did what they were supposed to do.”

Certainly, if you look at the EEOC directive, they did all that was required of them.  That directive said that you cannot use someone’s previous criminal record against them and if you are required to ignore background checks and hire a sexual deviant to work in your high school, or have a Navigator for Obamacare, with a history of identity theft, why not hire a mentally imbalanced man buying guns and ammo for the federal government?

In the USIS report to the Office of Personnel Management, the incident from three years ago,  was mentioned but instead of being described as Alexis shooting out the tires of the car, the report read, “deflated tires”, which may be technically correct but it’s like saying Bonnie and Clyde died of natural causes, because when you get shot that many times, naturally you die.

The USIS, who vetted Alexis, also vetted Edward Snowden.  I wonder if they also vetted Obama.  The USIS have now replaced their CEO and revised their rules as they apply to background checks.  For the families of the 12 victims gunned down by Aaron Alexis, that will be of little comfort.

Tom Coburn Calls Reid an A-hole..Share if You Agree

DADT-aholemeter2

DADT-aholemeter2

According to the New York Daily News, Sen Tom Coburn, who was attending a fundraiser in New York, sponsored by the New York Young Republicans called Harry Reid, an absolute asshole.  A thing like that can get you sued for definition of character.

Coburn named other democratic senators with whom he has a good relationship, including New York’s Chuck Schumer.

In 2012, speaking of Harry Reid, Coburn said, “If you want to ask why the Senate isn’t working, there’s one reason; it’s called Harry Reid.  Incompetent and incapable of carrying on the leadership in the Senate.”  He later apologized for his choice of words.

Reid is known for being rude and crude himself.  He has many times expressed his disdain for overweight people.  He complains of “smelly tourists” and once told a cameraman his breath stunk.

Coburn’s exact words were, “There’s no comity with Harry Reid. I think he’s an absolute a–hole.”

Georgia Business to Dump Employees into Exchanges and Pay Fine

Debbie and Larry Underkoffler, opened a boutique staffing agency in the middle of the Obama recession and have always taken good care of their employees, but thanks to Obamacare, they are forced into throwing them to the wolves.   They have 400 temporary workers and want to add another 200 this year, but buying them all an Obamacare policy is too expensive and they have decided to pay the $2,000 apiece fine for not providing coverage.

Although they only have 18 fulltime employees, under Obamacare rules, temporaries who work over 30 hours a week are eligible for coverage.  That would take them to about 200 employees and put them over the top and into mandatory coverage.

The Onderkofflers worked hard to build up their business.  “I would bake sourdough bread, and I made homemade strawberry jam, and deliver it to my prospects.  I would also deliver homemade cookies.”   And their 18 full time employees get generous healthcare benefits, which they will now lose since Obamacare does not allow a company to have different policies between full time workers and part timers.

It looks like we will have to just pay the penalties.”

By paying the penalties, it will cost their business $400,000 a year which greatly diminish their profit margin, but not as badly as the 2 million it would cost to insure them.  Some call this an unintended consequence of the law, but I submit that this is exactly what the law was designed to do and once everyone is in the government exchange, they will convert it to a single payer system, like the ones that work so well in Canada and Great Britain.

With a year’s delay in the employer mandate, they are hoping for some relief with the current rules but neither is optimistic.

“I haven’t seen any thus far. And certainly with the situation in Washington right now, they seem to be kicking the can down the road.”

 

Al Gore Snookers US Taxpayers

al-gore-speaks-1-29

In 2009, the Obama administration decided to repay Al Gore for his help in the campaign by loaning Fisker  529 million dollars to build cars in Finland.  Al Gore owns a large stake in that company.  It’s like playing poker with borrowed money you don’t have to repay if you lose.  Even after it became obvious that Fisker was a bust, the money kept flowing and their line of credit was continued after they had used up 192 million of it.

Now, the federal government is planning to auction or outright sell the 192 million debt to a private company for possibly 15 cents on the dollar, leaving taxpayers 163.2 million dollars poorer.  Fisker built 239 cars, which sell for $109,000 dollars each.  That’s only 26.05 million dollars worth of cars.  And to add insult to injury, they had to recall all 239 of them because their A123 ion batteries created a fire hazard.

Coincidentally, A123 received 133 million of a 249 million dollar grant before they declared bankruptcy and were sold to a Chinese company, Wanxiang.  And the best part (except for taxpayers of course) is that Wanxiang gets to keep the equipment purchased with the grant money, without returning one red cent.  A123 also made the batteries for the Chevy Volt that had a tendency to burn.

And since the program was so successful, the Obama administration has decided to restart it.  Sen Thune, R-SD has decided to fight the administration and keep the program closed.  And although the program will do nothing for manufacturing or the economy, it could answer an age old question, man has been curious for years about.  Exactly how much money will a rat hole hold?

The beauty of the deal for Gore and his partners is, if Fisker became a huge success, the would only have to pay back what they borrowed and if it flops, the taxpayers pick up the tab.

 

Cheating With Ease in Colorado Recall Elections

morse giron

 

morse gironJohn Morse and Angela Giron are being recalled, tomorrow and they may survive based on new rules that allow cheating in Colorado.  You can live in one county and vote in another one.  How?  Easily.  You just notify the county’s voting board that you are planning to move to that county soon.  No proof is needed and no one will ever check up on you later.  Coincidentally, or not, the bill was sponsored by Sen Angela Giron.

To prove his point Jon Caldera, did just that and was able to vote in another county, although he has no intention of actually moving anywhere.  Some democrats are calling for his arrest, even though, just last month, they called for the Secretary of State to resign, when he announced he was kicking 155 illegal immigrants from the voting registration, when he discovered they had all gotten out of jury duty, by declaring that they weren’t American citizens. Caldera said he was  proving how easy cheating in tomorrow’s contests will be.

Morse and Giron were recalled, after their constituents got angry over their support for new draconian gun laws.  Caldera observed that the new law allows anyone who has lived in Colorado to vote, if they’ve lived in Colorado for at least 22 days, in the two affected counties.  Nice trick if you can pull it off.  Didn’t you see that Eric Holder?

 

The Obama Recovery is Worse Than Bush Recession

blog_economy_word_cloud_q4_2011

 

When you consider the fact that the recession had more to do with Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barney Frank, than it did George Bush, the fact that the Bush recession was much better than the Obama recovery is a stark look at the incompetence of the current administration.

OBAMA’blog_economy_word_cloud_q4_2011S AMERICA

The Bush recession ended in June of 2009 At that time the labor participation rate was   65.7%.  During the “recovery” the participation rate dropped to 63.4%.  That’s a huge nosedive and represents a 34 year low.  That would have been at a time when women weren’t fully in the workforce yet.  Historically, after a recession, the economy adds jobs and the participation rate climbs.  That has not happened with the Obama administration.  Instead of concentrating on jobs and the economy, Obama and the democrats were busy working on what now is obviously, a deeply flawed and overly expensive Obamacare bill, that could very well leave more people without insurance that we had before the bill passed.

They concentrated on gays and illegal aliens, while leaving black America in ruins.  On the food chain it’s liberal elites, illegal aliens, gays, unions, campaign donors, then American citizens, 50 feet of cow manure, then blacks.  But come next election, who will they vote for?

Income levels have dropped also.  During the recession incomes dropped an average of $1,002 dollars.  During the Obama “recovery” wages dropped $2,380 dollars.  ($2380 is more than $1002 for you NEA educated liberals out there.)  Remind liberals of these facts next time they tell you that Obama saved the country.

Bush added 5 trillion to the debt in 8 years and Obama has added over 7 trillion in less than 5 years.  Unemployment averaged 5.2% under Bush and 8.2% under Obama.  We can’t take any more recovery.

 

Common Core Schools or Reeducation Centers?

CommonCoreRottenCorer

CommonCoreRottenCorer

In China, they are called reeducation camps.  In Gaza, they are called Camp Jihad.  In Nazi Germany, it was the Hitler Youth.  In Obama’s America, it is called Common Core.  But as the bard, William Shakespeare once wrote, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet“.  Likewise, indoctrination by any other name is propaganda.

Common Core would not only allow the government and the elitists to rewrite history and our moral code, it would also deprive our children of innovation and the freedom of thought.  I remember many years ago, when I was living in the New York City Metro area, New York City schools began teaching that homosexuality is normal and healthy.  Opponents criticized the reading of such books as, “Heather Has Two Mommies” and “Daddy’s Roommate”, as teaching that homosexuality is normal and should be embraced.  Now, nearly 30 years later, that thought is embedded into our national discussions.

In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit that four years ago, I myself, came out of the closet and today I proudly hail that I am a flaming heterosexual.  I think I knew it from an early age, but tried to hide it from my peers, to save myself embarrassment and ridicule.  It took me a long time to get over the stigma of actually desiring the company of beautiful young women.  I fought the urge but there was nothing I could do.  The prejudice I have felt because of my heterosexuality has only served to make me stronger.

Common Core opens the door to the indoctrination of our youth.  When I was young (I must have a really fantastic memory) I learned about the structure of our government and the Declaration of Independence, and of course the Constitution.  We were taught to be proud of our country and who we were and what we stood for.  Today, the elite being unable to raise their own status have decided the only course of action is to destroy the status of what made us Americans.

In those days, an education was meant to broaden our minds and give us the tools to succeed.  Today the successful are derided and called greedy and callous.  How did we get here?  We allowed ourselves to be hijacked by the liberal academia.  As the Nazis, Soviets, and the Chinese knew, the best time to shape a person’s beliefs is when they are young and impressionable.  And after many years of stealth indoctrination, the liberal elites are ready to come out of the shadows and indoctrinate our youth before our very eyes.  They understand that children, especially teenagers are rebellious by nature, and that good or even great parenting is not enough to counteract their teachings.

If you check out the Common Core website, it proudly hails that CC was not the product of the federal government, but was rather the culmination of common educational goals.  Diane Ravitch, who was appointed as the Assistant Secretary of Education by both Bill Clinton and George H. W. Bush, disagrees.  It is her contention that the standards for CC were very much a federal program, emanating from Achieve and the  National Governors Association, both of whom were funded by the Gates Foundation.  CC was neither grassroots or a states plan but was very firmly entrenched in Washington D. C.

And although CC is called a voluntary program, any state which does not participate in CC, is deemed ineligible for “Race to the Top” educational grants from the Department of Education.  Breathing is voluntary also, but if you don’t participate, the outcome could be dire.  States who reject CC also reject billions of dollars for their schools.  It can hardly be considered voluntary when you have a gun pressed against your temple.

Under CC, reading of the classics is deemphasized, and in it’s place, are informational texts, including court rulings, and government documents.  And who interprets the court decisions and government documents?  The NEA does.  If a student wishes a passing grade, they have to give the answer their teacher wants.  We are trading the Catcher in the Rye for Roe V Wade.

(BTW….I was just wondering.  Could we save the lives of millions of innocent babies if we began referring to them as “guest children” or “undocumented babies”?)

The math curriculum is a mess.  The committee setting up standards, only had one mathematician,  Professor R. James Milgram of Stanford University, and he refused to sign off on the standards, and I might know why.  In CC, the answer is not important.  If you multiply 3 times 4 and your answer is 11, you could get the answer right.  It seems under CC, the answer is not as important as knowing how and why you got the wrong answer.  (This explains why so many people still like Obama.  He hasn’t had a correct answer yet but he knows how and why we got in this mess.  So do I.  It’s called an election)

Watch the instructor explain the reasoning.  Some assembly and duct tape required.

There is some good news and some bad news.  The good news is the students will sing the national anthem every morning before class.  The bad news is the new anthem is Barack Obama mmm mmm mmm.

 

Egypt Closes Rafah Crossing After 25 Policemen are Executed

rafah_crossing

rafah_crossing

The Egyptian military has closed the Rafah Crossing from Palestinian Gaza Strip, after the execution by Al Qaeda extremists, of  with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, after they executed 25 policemen guarding the crossing.  Last week the Egyptian military had announced the crossing would be closed indefinitely, but was partially opened on Sunday.

The terrorists then gunned down the police on the scene killing 25 and wounding two.  (Death toll was updated after the story was written.)  The insurgents then fired two rocket propelled grenades at two buses leaving the city of Rafah, making their way to Gaza.

It was the deadliest toll at the border, surpassing the 16 soldiers who were killed in 2012.

In 2009, Hamas terrorists crossed the border to free Muslim Brotherhood terrorists from prison including Mohamed Morsi.  14 guards were murdered in that assault.
