OFA Hijacks Gadsen Flag For Obamacare
22 Mar 2014 7:10 am
The Gadsen Flag was a symbol of freedom, standing against tyranny. An “American guesser“, who many believe to be Benjamin Franklin, wrote of the rattlesnake, a uniquely American animal, which was nowhere else in the world
“She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage. … she never wounds ’till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her.”
The flag is rooted in the War Of Independence from the …
Washington Post Really Wants Hillary To Stress Sexism If She Runs
22 Mar 2014 6:54 am
OK, OK, writer Nia-Malikia Henderson is pushing that she should stress gender, but, really, what she means is that Hillary should call any attack on herself to be sexist
Hillary Clinton notably downplayed the historic part of her 2008 presidential run until the very end, stressing instead her record in the Senate and as first lady. Well, as she considers if and how to run for president in 2016, she might want to take a look at a new Gallup poll.
In short, the biggest selling point for a Clinton candidacy …
Warmist Phil Plait: You Can’t Just Sway People With Facts
21 Mar 2014 7:19 am
Warmists are very upset that so many people really do not care that much about Doing Something about “climate change”, despite the constant barrage of propaganda for almost 30 years. Despite the constant release of over-wrought, doom-mongering, scarathon reports. Despite failing to live their own lives according to their talking points…er, guess I wasn’t supposed to mention that one
(Slate) Climate change is real. The globe is warming. The data show it, the effects are already happening, and when you talk to scientists who study it, they all know it, too.
Obama Whines About Dems Being “Clobbered” In Mid-terms
21 Mar 2014 6:45 am
Here’s your whiner-in-chief trotting out the same old whines
(The Hill) President Obama complained Thursday that Democrats “get clobbered” in midterm elections, blaming a “toxic” atmosphere in Washington for suppressing key Democratic constituencies.
“The challenge is that our politics in Washington have become so toxic that people just lose faith,” Obama told a group of top Democratic donors gathered at the home of former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning. “They say, ‘Y’know what, it doesn’t matter, I’m not that interested, I’m not gonna vote.’ And that’s especially true during the midterms.”
I didn’t …
HHS Head Kathleen Sebelius Loves This March Madness Obamacare Push
20 Mar 2014 7:13 am
These people are shameless
Don’t Let a Sports Injury Keep You Out Of The Game, Get Covered Today
This week, as part of our final push to encourage as many Americans as possible to get covered ahead of the March 31st enrollment deadline, the Administration is launching an effort to reach college basketball fans young and old during March Madness – to remind them of the importance of having quality, affordable insurance.
As part of our effort, today, HHS, in partnership with our President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition, is releasing new …
Don Lemon Asks If A Black Hole Swallowed Flight 370
20 Mar 2014 6:46 am
Is it any wonder CNN’s ratings are in the tank? Personally, I’ve been flogging the “it was the aliens” meme in discussions (solely as a joke, though it would be amusing to see some faces if it turned out to be real), but this one is beyond stupid. This is the kind of stupid following the phrase “hey, y’all, watch this!”
(Mediaite) CNN’s Don Lemon has been entertaining all sorts of theories about the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, including the chance something “supernatural” happened, but on Wednesday night, he actually …
Climate Astrology: Cold Weather Caused By Global Warming
19 Mar 2014 9:01 am
It must have been really, really hot during the last ice age. Here’s the CBC going bat guano insane in attempting to defend the Warmist cult
Cold snaps result of global warming, study says
Jet streams are dipping further south to cause extended cool temperatures
This year’s uncommonly cold winter has put to bed the notion global warming is anything but a myth, right?
Wrong, says a group of researchers out of New Jersey’s Rutgers University, who have put out a new study that suggests the prolonged cold snaps we’ve experienced could be a …
Obamacare Premiums Said To Soon Skyrocket
19 Mar 2014 8:34 am
And right in time for the 2014 midterms. I feel an Obama delay coming shortly
(The Hill) Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration.
The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015.
The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and …
Bummer: Marijuana Is Really Bad For “Climate Change”
18 Mar 2014 9:27 am
Of course, pretty much everything of Mankind’s is Bad for climate change, according to Warmists. Gumball Brains emailed me a picture the other day, showing that Pirate’s Cove appears on a map in the Lego Movie. What are Lego’s made from? ABS plastic, which includes coal and petroleum hydrocarbon, so, yeah, fossil fuels, bad for climate. And your bare feet if you step on them.
Anyhow, yeah, pot is bad, per Mother Jones
24 Mind-Blowing Facts About Marijuana Production in America
You thought your pot came from environmentally conscious hippies? Think again. The …
We Trashed The Health System For A Supposed 5 Million Enrollments?
18 Mar 2014 8:58 am
HHS is thrilled with themselves
As this historic open enrollment period enters its final weeks, millions of Americans are finding quality, affordable coverage thanks to the Affordable Care Act. Fernando Valdez and Denise Schroeder were part of a weekend wave of consumers signing up for new coverage and bringing enrollment nationwide to more than 5 million through the Federal and State-based Marketplaces since October 1st.
Have they paid their premiums? If they haven’t they aren’t enrollments.
(Washington Post) About 800,000 people selected health plans on the state and federal insurance marketplaces in the …
Civilization Is Doomed From “Climate Change” Or Something
17 Mar 2014 8:40 am
But not immediately. It “could” happen sometime in the future
(Huffington Post) Civilisation is almost inevitably doomed, a Nasa-funded study has found.
Human society is founded on a level of economic and environmental stability which almost certainly cannot be sustained, it said.
The study used simplified models of civilisation designed to experiment with the balance of resources and climate that creates stability – or not – in our world.
These theoretical models – designed to extrapolate from simple principles the future of our industrialised world – ran into almost intractable problems.
Almost any model “closely …
Are You Ready For Obamacare March Madness?
17 Mar 2014 8:05 am
Yet another event Team Obama plans to ruin
(CNN) As hoop heads across the country prepare for the Big Dance, President Barack Obama’s administration is banking on a new March Madness-focused campaign to help boost Obamacare enrollment.
To coincide with the start of NCAA basketball tournament, a White House official says the administration is launching an all-encompassing push around the annual basketball bonanza that will feature athletes, coaches, and others, in hopes of spurring more Americans to sign up for health care before the March 31 deadline.
Nothing like highly paid athletic figures …
NY Times: Democrats Worried About Obama Factor
16 Mar 2014 8:58 am
Alternate headline: NY Times, Democrats whine like 4 year olds over Republican groups daring to spend money against them. This article, which appears on page A1 of the New York edition is highlights three things, namely that Democrats are concerned about Obama’s falling poll numbers, that Conservative groups are outspending Democrats (the nerve!!!!!), and that Obama is a cheapskate and not helping Democrats
(NY Times) Democrats are becoming increasingly alarmed about their midterm election fortunes amid President Obama’s sinking approval ratings, a loss in a special House election in Florida last …
9 Year Old Girl’s Rant Against Gun Control Goes Viral
15 Mar 2014 8:11 am
This goes to the proposed law I mentioned back in February, which would limit magazines to 10 rounds, among other things. She, figuratively, blew the room away
(The Blaze) Speaking before the New Jersey Law and Public Safety Committee in Trenton, N.J., on Thursday, 9-year-old competition shooter Shyanne Roberts spoke in opposition to a proposed bill that would further limit magazine capacity to 10 rounds.
In her speech, which earned thunderous applause from the audience, she presented the simplicity and common sense nature of the pro-gun argument in a way only a …
Obama: Hey, We’ve Got Enough Enrollments To Ensure Obamacare Survives
15 Mar 2014 7:46 am
He’s pretty casual in throwing out the supposed enrollment figure, though strangely unable to provide the risk pool mixes
(Washington Post) President Obama said Friday he was confident enough Americans had enrolled under the Affordable Care Act to make the program “stable.”
In an interview with WebMD (transcript here), Obama said the fact that 4.2 million people have already signed up for plans under federal and state marketplaces mean enough companies will be invested to stay in the system.
“Well, at this point, enough people are signing up that the Affordable Care Act …
Poll Shows Europe Cares Little About Climate Change
14 Mar 2014 7:16 am
We already know that “climate change” ranks at the bottom of concerns for American citizens. How about for the EU? Bjorn Lomborg finds an interesting study
EU likes to say “climate change is one of the greatest challenges of the modern age.”
But its citizens don’t think so. They focus on unemployment, the economic situation, inflation, government debt, health, social security, immigration, crime, taxes, pensions, education and housing before they worry about climate.
Moreover, notice, how they’ve bunched up environment, climate *and* energy issues, and still can’t get it above 5%.
The whole report, …
Pelosi Claims Democrats Won’t Run From Obamacare
14 Mar 2014 6:59 am
That’s incredibly easy for her to say, being in an ultra-safe seat. She should perhaps consult with those in not so safe seats, especially in the Senate
(Real Clear Politics) Nancy Pelosi said her Democratic colleagues should not shy from the Affordable Care Act in their 2014 midterm campaigns, arguing that Republicans “are wasting their time using that as their electoral issue.”
The House minority leader’s comments came in the aftermath of a two-point special election victory for Republicans in Florida’s 13th Congressional District. Some observers believe the win forecasts difficulties ahead …
Barbara Boxer Has Lessons From The Senate Climate Change Sleepover
13 Mar 2014 7:17 am
One of them is that because you drove a fossil fueled vehicle, it’s really cold in Minnesota, as she writes in an opinion piece for the Huffington Post
Second, every state in the U.S. is already experiencing the effects of climate change.
During the all-night session, it was fascinating to listen to my Senate colleagues from across the country — North, South, East and West — as they discussed what people in their states are experiencing now and the threats they face from climate change — including extreme weather.
Senator Tom Udall and …
Krauthammer: Hardship Exemption Essentially Cancels Mandate
13 Mar 2014 6:47 am
You’ve probably heard about this one by now: Team Obama has changed the hardship exemption rules
(WSJ) But amid the post-rollout political backlash, last week the agency created a new category: Now all you need to do is fill out a form attesting that your plan was cancelled and that you “believe that the plan options available in the [ObamaCare] Marketplace in your area are more expensive than your cancelled health insurance policy” or “you consider other available policies unaffordable.”
This lax standard—no formula or hard test beyond a person’s belief—at least …
What Does It Cost To Rent A Democrat Senator?
12 Mar 2014 9:02 am
It works out to around $238,000 per hour
(NRSC) How much does it cost to rent the Senate floor (and 30 United States Senators) for 24 hours? By the looks of it, more than $100 million. Last night, the majority of Democrats engaged in a so-called, “talk-a-thon” to protest climate change and advocate for policies that hurt American energy development. Yes, this is the same Democrat majority that has controlled Washington since 2009.
As the Los Angeles Times reports, “There has been little talk of legislation to tackle climate change …
