Stimulus Included Large Grant to Interview Lesbians Who Adopt Children

Obama was able to sink the USA nearly $17 trillion into debt, making eventual economic collapse almost inevitable, in part through his massive Porkulus bill, which would supposedly solve our economic problems through deficit spending. Outrages included in this looting spree are still coming to light:

The $833 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), commonly known as the stimulus, awarded the tustees of Clark University, in Worcester, Mass., $152,000 to interview roughly 50 lesbian couples about their adoption experiences.

Despite the all lies about “jobs saved and created,” the effect on Obama’s unemployment rate was as predictable as it was typical.

The project, entitled, “Transition to Adoptive Parenthood,” was funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, and it created “0.00” jobs, according to the “jobs created” category.

If the money had been flushed down a toilet, it might at least have provided temporary employment for a plumber by clogging the drain. But the important thing is that our rulers mean well, as they prove to the politically correct by validating the adoption of innocent children into perverse situations.

Dynamic Scoring Ruse Won’t Stop Amnesty From Causing Economic Collapse

Among the few who seem to grasp that the coming amnesty could be literally the worst thing that ever happened to America, we can count Ann Coulter:

The Heritage Foundation recently issued a comprehensive report showing that Sen. Marco Rubio’s plan to instantly legalize 11.5 million illegal immigrants would add $6.3 trillion to the nation’s budget deficits over the next 50 years. Heritage assumed there are 11.5 million illegals, but other estimates put the number at 33 million, which would mean adding another $18 trillion to the deficit. To put that in perspective, the largest U.S. budget deficit in history was $1.4 trillion in 2009.

Currently, the average illegal alien gets about $24,721 in taxpayer-funded benefits and pays about $10,334 in taxes. After full legalization, they will be eligible for a whole new panoply of government benefits such as direct welfare payments, Obamacare, Social Security and Medicare. Heritage concludes that the total government benefits to these former illegal aliens will then rise to about $43,900 per household, while the taxes paid by them will increase only modestly to around $16,000.

Not to worry, coos quisling Senator Marco Rubio, who attached his young RINO face to Chuck Schumer’s treasonous amnesty bill. Bureaucrats can produce less alarming numbers by using “dynamic scoring,” which takes into account the beneficial effect on the economy of opening the border to an essentially infinite horde of low-skilled workers, many of whom will not be working but rather living off lavish welfare benefits.

Anyone actually believing that there will be any such beneficial effect not only doesn’t belong in the Senate, but doesn’t belong walking around loose outside the confines of a mental asylum.

Department of Social Justice Bugs Congressional Cloak Room Phones

It isn’t only AP reporters the Injustice Department likes to keep illicit tabs on. From an interview yesterday of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) by Hugh Hewitt:

DN: I don’t think people are focusing on the right thing when they talk about going after the AP reporters. The big problem that I see is that they actually tapped right where I’m sitting right now, the Cloak Room.

HH: Wait a minute, this is news to me.

DN: The Cloak Room in the House of Representatives.

That is to say,

the Justice Department wiretapped telephones in the House of Representative’s Cloak Room, an exclusive part of the Capitol where members are able to privately interact with one another.

The Executive Branch is completely out of control.

Axelrod: It’s Not Obama’s Fault; Government Is Too Big

From the mouths of moonbats sometimes comes partial truth — but of course only when it happens to serve their purposes. This is how the mad political scientist who created Obama as he was sold to the herd exculpates his monster from the IRS scandal:

“If you look at the Inspector General’s report, apparently some folks down in the bureaucracy, and you know we have a large government, took it upon themselves to shorthand these applications for tax exempt status in a way that was, as I said, idiotic, and also dangerous because of the political implications,” [David] Axelrod said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“Part of being president is there’s so much underneath you because the government is so vast,” he added. “You go through these [controversies] all because of this stuff that is impossible to know if you’re the president or working in the White House, and yet you’re responsible for it and it’s a difficult situation.”

That is, Obama couldn’t possibly know what the Executive Branch is up to, because government is far too big.

That the Leviathan is many times its appropriate size cannot be denied. However, this has nothing to do with Obama’s bloated government filling in the details of an agenda the Community Organizer in Chief has made crystal clear.

Wrong Neighborhood, Getting to Be the Wrong Country

This is what happened when a family of disfavored pigmentation stopped for gas at a Chevron station in Baton Rouge:

[Police spokesman Tommy] Stubbs said a man wearing a pink shirt was in line trying to pay for gas when Donald Dickerson, 41, started making fun of him, leading to an argument.

“The defendant (Dickerson) approached the white male victim,” the police report stated.

It went on to read, “the defendant told him he was in the wrong neighborhood and he was not going to make it out.” The victim said that’s when he “was punched and knocked to the ground.”

At this time, his wife got out of the car and ran to help her husband. The victim said, “he continued to struggle with the defendant and was eventually knocked unconscious, which later he awoke in the hospital.”

His wife told police, “after running to help her husband, she remembers falling to the ground and (being) knocked unconscious.”

According to a close family friend, that’s when the couple’s teenage daughter got out of the car to check on her parents and, “observed a female punch her mother in the face, when her mother then fell to the concrete, hitting her head on the surface.”

The daughter was also punched in the face.

“There were only three suspects but there were multiple people in the parking lot,” said Stubbs.

Of those three, Dickerson was arrested and charged with second-degree battery. The other two suspects, Devin Bessye, 24, and Ashley Simmons, 22, were released on site after police wrote them each a summons for simple battery.

The rest of the mob got off completely free.

The victim suffered “a broken eye socket, broken nose, and several lacerations to the face,” and his wife was knocked unconscious.

Police are “investigating,” but somehow I doubt this will qualify as a hate crime, just as no matter how many times it happens, it will not make national news.

After the federal government has handed over $15,000,000,000,000.00 of our money, this is what we get in return.

Dickerson: What we’ll have left when the makers are taxed out of existence.

Socialism Leads to D.I.Y. Dentistry in Britain

Since Britain is still a few years ahead of us regarding the collectivization of healthcare, let’s look across the pond to see what the Hopey Changey future holds regarding dentistry:

Experts say that up to 200,000 DIY [do it yourself] dentists risk injuring themselves and missing out on potentially life-saving check-ups.

Up to a third of adults no longer have an NHS [National Health Service] dentist, according to the latest figures.

Gulf War veteran Ian Boynton, 46, from Woodmansey, East Yorkshire, pulled out 13 of his teeth with pliers because he was in agony and could not find an NHS dentist to treat him.

In another case a 46-year-old man from Wandsworth, south London, needed major surgery after he stuck a crown into his mouth with super glue which rotted the bone in his gum.

Other DIY dentists have whitened teeth with household cleaning products and popped ulcers with pins. …

Since a new NHS contract was introduced in 2006, the number of crowns, bridges and dentures being fitted has fallen dramatically as dentists feel they are no longer paid enough for time-consuming procedures.

In the 18th century, Britain came to dominate the planet in part because improvements in healthcare led to a population explosion. Thanks to socialism, healthcare is now figuring prominently in Britain’s decline.

Socialized dentistry could explain Austin Powers's smile.
