Well, whadda ya know?
Romney and Ryan have already filed to run:

The United States within nearly a century of its founding became the wealthiest nation in the history of mankind. It accomplished this without an income tax, free university tuition, universal health care, or even Social Security. In Bernie Sanders’ lifetime, he witnessed the fall of National Socialists, Soviet Socialists, and more benign iterations of the collectivist ideology. But he imagines the command economy, rather than the free market, as our savior.
— Daniel J. Flynn in Socialism, The Nightmare That Never Dies
I’m enjoying the irony of American Sanders supporters lecturing me, a former Soviet citizen, on the glories of Socialism and what it really means! Socialism sounds great in speech soundbites and on Facebook, but please keep it there. In practice, it corrodes not only the economy but the human spirit itself, and the ambition and achievement that made modern capitalism possible and brought billions of people out of poverty. Talking about Socialism is a huge luxury, a luxury that was paid for by the successes of capitalism. Income inequality is a huge problem, absolutely. But the idea that the solution is more government, more regulation, more debt, and less risk is dangerously absurd.
— Garry Kasparov
Arabs have no more creative force. Islam does not contribute to intellectual life, it suggests no discussion. It is no longer thought. It produces no thinking, no art, no science, no vision that could change the world. This repetition is the sign of its end. The Arabs will continue to exist, but they will not make the world better.
— Arabic poet Adunis Asbar
The feminist girls all were laughing at me and giving me the middle finger on the street, guys were screaming at me that ‘maybe that washed the scum off you,'” she recounted. “Despite their professed feminism, they don’t care about women if they have the wrong opinions. And despite their professed concern for ‘violence against women,’ they don’t care if women who disagree with them are physically attacked.
— Libertarian commentator Lauren Southern after being doused in urine by ‘anti-fascist’ protesters
“Income inequality is a huge problem, absolutely.”
Several responses seem appropriate. 1) Why? 2)What makes it a huge problem? 3) Is the problem that you are blinded by greed for that which you didn’t earn? 4) What if I showed you how you, too, could be rich. And in the process I made more money, so I would still have more than you. Is income equality still a problem?
those who make peaceful change impossible make violent revolution inevitablele jfk. Fdr saved the rich from a date with a ditch sanders and trymp are trying to prevent your date with a ditch if they fail what comes after won’t be so nice!
You TOO can earn $98 per hour, and drive a Maclaren F1 like I do!
Just click on this link, and watch your online banking details disappear:
Surely you meant to type “98$ per hour”. You know, the way all Americans write dollar amounts. : )
Jeezus! Did I give the game away??
Yup–the devil’s in the details.
The thing is socialism works… on paper. When you don’t account for reality, for human nature, it is a workable system. But as soon as you add human nature and the real world it fails miserably. The simple fact is there are those who will respond to socialism by becoming nothing but takers. And they will bring the system down every time as more and more people decide they won’t work for a system that makes their decisions for them and steals what they’ve worked to create to redistribute to those who have done nothing to deserve it. It is inevitable. Socialism depends on everyone pulling their own weight and more but in the real world that just doesn’t happen when it is implemented.
A recurring complaint about capitalism is that it causes TOO MUCH WEALTH, in the form of over-production. Imagine, wannabe socialists complain because capitalism is TOO GOOD at producing more than is actually needed, while we’ve all seen the results of socialism – too much misery for everyone but a select few who pretend to follow socialism but really are only interested in power and control. Empty shelves. Hardship and, when you speak up about it, you disappear.
Maybe it’s a problem on my end, but your site can’t be reached, at least not at the moment.
One aspect of obamacare was it was designed to be slipped in less painfully, but in the end the ill effect is the same – a crushing cost. Taxpayers are learning this in increasing steps:
Halfway through tax season, uninsured filers are paying more than twice as much as they did last year to satisfy Obamacare’s penalty for lacking coverage, H&R Block said Tuesday, in an analysis that says other customers still cannot match their incomes to IRS subsidies they got on the law’s exchanges.
The tax-prep giant said its customers are paying an average penalty of $383 because of the Affordable Care Act’s “individual mandate,” compared to $172 last year.
That’s because the mandate, a lever designed to bring healthy people into the new marketplace, rose from $95 or 1 percent of qualified income — whichever is greater — in 2014 to $325 or 2 percent of income for 2015.
H&R Block also said three out of five customers who received advanced tax credits so they could afford private plans on web-based exchanges are paying back a portion to the IRS because they underestimated their actual income for 2015.
Starting in 2014, Obamacare’s subsidies were designed to lend a helping hand to low- and moderate-income Americans who do not hold insurance through jobs or a government program such as Medicaid, and cannot afford coverage on the individual market.
Yet by routing those subsidies through the tax system, filers were forced to reconcile the financial help they received up front with their actual income during the year. If the two don’t match, then filers will either cough up more to the IRS or get more money back.

Obama continues to ensure more terrorists will be back on the streets, looking for ways to attack America and Americans:
The number of former Guantánamo Bay detainees suspected of re-engaging in terrorism or insurgency after being released by President Obama doubled in the six months through January, according to data released Tuesday by the administration.
Critics of Obama’s plan to close the Guantánamo detention facility are certain to use the new totals to bolster their arguments that the recidivism rate is too high to continue releasing prisoners to foreign countries.
Overall, 118 of the prisoners released are confirmed to have participated in terrorism, while another 86 are suspected.
Obama’s strategy to destroy America in plain sight:
Record number of unaccompanied minors set to flood southern border.
Homeland Security officials are on track to apprehend a record number of unaccompanied minors trying to enter the U.S. from Mexico, the Senate Homeland Security chairman suggested on Tuesday.
From the beginning of the fiscal year, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told the committee, officials have apprehended 23,533 unaccompanied minors trying to cross the border.
“I think we’re possibly beyond crisis proportions here,” said Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis. “Four months and we’re up to 23,000 already… 2014 was a crisis, right now I think we’re running ahead of 2014 levels,” Johnson added.
“If we maintain this pace, we’ll have 77,000 in 2016,” he said. The record was set in 2014, when Customs and Border Protection reported a total of 68,541 were apprehended at the border.
What the picture didn’t show was Ted Cruz standing beside the sign doing nothing while stating that “This is not the hill to die on.”
Illegal alien who was previously deported, only to return and become a mass murderer in Kansas City, caught in rural Missouri.
Killer Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino, 40, is a previously deported illegal alien from Mexico.
There are 4 reasons why The Obama is flooding America with illegals’…
1. They are not white…
2. They come pre-dependent on the government…
3. They will vote Democrat…
4. They will disrupt the social balance of America…
America has never had a president that has hated America and what it stands for so much.
So Trump was lying when he said Mexico is exporting it’s murderer’s etc. to the US?
OBAMA is doing two things that I want you to notice:
1) Bringing in dangerous criminals from other countries, as dangerous as he can find, as many as possible
2) Doing his best to disarm us.
He wants to start a race/ethnic war and his goal is to disadvantage us as best he can first.
She is an inspiration for liberal moonbats everywhere!
An ‘extremely rare’ case of twins born with different fathers has been reported in Vietnam after a DNA test was ordered.
The bi-parental twins were taken for testing because of stark differences in their appearances, according to local reports.
Twins born with different fathers can happen if two eggs from the same mother are fertilised by sperm from two different men during separate acts of sexual intercourse within the same ovulation period, AFP reports.
A similar case was previously reported in 2009, with Mia Washington admitting she was having an affair when she conceived, with two eggs fertilised by the sperm of two men.
“I have twins, but they’re by different fathers,” Miss Washington told Fox News.
Miss Washington and her partner James Harrison took DNA tests after noticing twins 11-month-old Justin and Jordan, had different facial features.
“Out of all people in America and of all people in the world, it had to happen to me. I’m very shocked,” Miss Washington said.
Here’s Mia Washington:
So how is Iran doing with complying with the agreement Obama forced down our throats?
“The reason we have designed these missiles with such a range — 2,000 kilometres — is to be able to hit our remote enemies, the Zionist regime,” Hajizadeh said, referring to Israel.
“But there is no need to fire missiles to destroy the Zionist regime as it will gradually collapse. Our main enemy is the US,” he said.
Not so good.
Another moonbat with sex/gender identity issues “comes out”.
First it was Laurence “Larry” Wachowski, now it’s Andrew Paul “Andy” Wachowski.
The second Wachowski sibling of “The Matrix” trilogy has come out as a transgender woman, with Andy Wachowski, now going by the name Lilly, making an announcement on Tuesday.
Some might argue there’s a genetic component to this mental illness, but it’s probable it’s from their upbringing. Maybe they were both raped by the same sick uncle.
Turns out gay relationships aren’t all they’re cracked up to be:
LAPD’s First Openly Gay Officer Charged In Domestic Violence Case
In fact, from what I understand, gay relationships are typically violent, abusive.
Which doesn’t surprise me.
Typically the one playing the role of the ‘wife’ resents it and responds with violence, as apparently happened here.
I guess that’s understandable – you guys, think about how you would feel if you were being raped that way. And you women too!
Retired Sgt. Mitchell Grobeson, 57, was arrested Friday after a nearly four-hour standoff inside a West Hollywood home before he surrendered to a sheriff’s SWAT team.
Grobeson is being held on $250,000 bail on suspicion of corporal injury to a spouse, according to a statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. He was charged with assault with a firearm and criminal threats stemming from a domestic dispute with his husband that led to Friday’s standoff.
Anyway, they’re keeping the details quiet.
I am so stealing that idea!
Obama “handcuffed” border patrol:
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu denounced the Obama administration Tuesday, accusing the White House of preventing border agents from enforcing immigration laws.
Babeu, flanked by Border Patrol agents and union leaders, said high-traffic smuggling routes are not appropriately staffed and laid into the administration for failed leadership.
The sheriff denounced the politicization of immigration enforcement at a news conference at PCSO’s Florence headquarters.
National Border Patrol Labor Council President Brandon Judd picked up on that theme, saying the agency is at a crossroads.
“We are either going to be a specialized law enforcement agency dedicated to enforcing our nation’s immigration laws or a political arm of the administration,” Judd said.
He said because the Obama administration failed to convince the American public to pass immigration reform, “the president is bypassing Congress by legislating through policy. These policies in essence are granting amnesty to thousands, if not millions, of persons who enter the country illegally.”
Judd alleged the administration has engaged in a campaign to mislead the American people to believe our borders are secure.
“He (Pres. Obama) has manipulated the data, had agents assigned to low traffic areas and attempted to quiet dissent by calling those who question his approach as misinformed without offering an evidence to support these allegations.”
According to figures Babeu released Tuesday, traffic of illegal immigrants in the first four months of this fiscal year is up by 25 percent. He said there’s been a 102 percent increase in unaccompanied juveniles. Babeu said.
I know, but be careful. Check the local laws and do your best to avoid breaking any. Signs are often placed so that you can avoid breaking the law and still do this. Don’t get yourself in trouble.
UPDATE: 3 arrested for pulling gun on Trump supporter
TOTAL Trump Derangement Syndrome. Don’t let it happen to you.
OBAMA IMPLEMENTS HIS FINAL PLAN TO SILENCE CHRISTIANS AND PROMOTE ISLAM IN AMERICA’S PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Under the ideologically twisted banner of civil rights enforcement, the DOJ just launched a new initiative to “promote religious freedom” in the nation’s public schools by cracking down on discrimination and bullying, especially as it may affect Muslims.
Vanita Gupta, once Deputy Legal Director of the ACLU and attorney for the NAACP, and acting assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ, has now unofficially ratified Obama’s written promise, that “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
When the winds blew ugly at Umpqua Community College in Southern Oregon and a professed Muslim sympathizer chose his victims on the basis of whether or not they admitted they were Christian – at which time he executed students with a bullet to the head if they admitted they were (and left non-Christian students alone), to Gupta and Obama it was as if that tragedy had never occurred, except as fodder for an anti-gun rant. Now unfortunately, our “Civil Rights” director has chosen to ignore this growing trend of Christian-bashing, and instead has chosen the same sick and backward government BLM approach – that is to protect the “peace loving” but un-assimilating Muslims and vilify our home grown American victims.

White House preparing to move against COMEY of FBI:
The aggressive posture of the FBI under Director James Comey is becoming a political problem for the White House.
Comey, meanwhile, has stirred tensions by linking rising violent crime rates to the Black Lives Matter movement’s focus on police violence
He also warned about “gaps” in the screening process for Syrian refugees.
His demand that Apple help unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino killers has outraged Silicon Valley, a significant source of political support for President Obama and Democrats.
Then there’s the biggest issue of all: the FBI’s investigation into the private email server used by Hillary Clinton, Obama’s former secretary of State and the leading contender to win the Democratic presidential nomination.
A decision by the FBI to charge Clinton or her top aides for mishandling classified information would be a shock to the political system.
He had better not go to Texas and stay at that hunting lodge Scalia visited…
And they all voted for Trump.
Scientists use stem cells to grow ‘living lens’ in eye and cure cataracts
And the process doesn’t use fetal stem cells – it uses your own.
This is another example of the use of NON-fetal stem cells that works, as opposed to things using fetal stem cells that wind up failing horribly.
I was going to follow this one up, if it was fetal stem cells, with:
And in other news, woman who got new lenses with fetal stem cells suffering from unusual problem:
Of course this issue is unrelated to the other and has nothing to do with stem cells.
Army indoctrinates soldiers concerning dangers of white privilege.
I wonder, is it more or less dangerous than human-induced climate change?
So let me get this straight… Blacks in Africa never banded together, because they were black, and killed white farmers, because they were white?
Not ever? This is only the sort of thing we see in America? Blacks attacking not only blacks but also whites in numbers disproportionate to their representation in the population at large?
Sometimes you can get a bit picayunish if people don’t quite get all their facts correct, so it seems a little strange you are calling this gay cop an LAPD officer. Where is your source that he was LAPD, and if you are wrong why no apology or clarification? I’m waiting…
AND TROLL conservative sites pushing for him…
ROTFLMAO!! OMG, liberals!
OR the resident TROLLS! (same thing)
It’s as bad, if not worse, than you thought.
The Obama INjustice department actually considered and discussed ways to attack people legally for their beliefs about CO2 and climate – actually considered prosecuting climate realists for telling the truth.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified Wednesday that the Justice Department has “discussed” taking civil legal action against the fossil fuel industry for “denying” the “threat of carbon emissions” when it comes to climate change.
During Lynch’s testimony at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said that he believes there are similarities between the tobacco industry denying scientific studies showing the dangers of using tobacco and companies within the fossil fuel industry denying studies allegedly showing the threat of carbon emissions.
He went on to point out that under President Bill Clinton, the Justice Department brought and won a civil case against the tobacco industry, while the Obama administration has “done nothing” so far with regard to the fossil fuel industry.
Whitehouse concluded his comments by posing a question to the country’s top law enforcement officer.
“My question to you is, other than civil forfeitures and matters attendant to a criminal case, are there other circumstances in which a civil matter under the authority of the Department of Justice has been referred to the FBI?” he asked.
“This matter has been discussed. We have received information about it and have referred it to the FBI to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we could take action on,” Lynch answered. “I’m not aware of a civil referral at this time.”
Gun-Control Activist Posts ‘F*** Police Officers,’ ‘F*** the NRA’ Rant. One Week Later, She Gets Invited to Meet President Obama.
Be sure to read the response from gun-control activist Amanda Gailey regarding the uproar over her Facebook post at the bottom of the story.
A Facebook page belonging to Amanda Gailey lists her as director of Nebraskans Against Gun Violence and associate professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. On Dec. 28, the following was posted on the Facebook page
KETV-TV reported that the White House last week called Gailey to personally invite her to meet Obama as part of his speech in Lincoln Wednesday.
Other posts on her Facebook page strike a similar tone. One screenshot shows a November post — apparently removed Thursday — that pokes fun at “Christianists” who are described as “people we should distinguish from Christianity the way we distinguish Islamists from Islam.” It then turns attention to Ted Cruz and offers an image that underscores gun control:
A BizPac Review writer noted the following exchanges in an attempt to connect the dots:
On Wednesday evening, I personally posted on the Facebook page of Nebraskans Against Gun Violence to ask if Gailey had made derogatory statements against the police, to which page administrators quickly replied “No.”
Minutes later I posted a screenshot of the comments and asked if the writer of those comments and the woman who met the president were not, in fact, one in the same.
Rather than reply, the page administrator’s deleted all of our correspondence, including the picture, and blocked me from the page.
See the link for her response, which is full of lies.
NOTE: Each of you should make up your own mind based on a variety of things. I do not suggest you pick a candidate based on what someone else tells you – rather you should be aware enough of what each candidate stands for, and the details of their background, to choose wisely without being told – as the moonbats pick THEIR candidates by who they’re told to vote for, generally. And we are not moonbats, are we?
Syndicated radio host Mark Levin endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for president during a broadcast late Wednesday.
“I support Ted Cruz for the president of the United States because I believe everything I’ve just discussed with you he appreciates, he embraces, he understands and he has fought for throughout his life as well,” Levin said. “That is the Constitution, the Republic, individual sovereignty, separation of powers, the Bill of Rights, family, faith, a secure border, our national security.”
Levin said he chose to make the announcement now because of the emotional response he has had in the days since former President Ronald Reagan’s wife Nancy died.
He pointed at the “whole picture” of Cruz’s life and career as a constitutional lawyer as evidence he was the Republican for the job.
Technology companies could face civil penalties for refusing to comply with court orders to help investigators access encrypted data under draft legislation nearing completion in the U.S. Senate, sources familiar with continuing discussions told Reuters on Wednesday.
The long-awaited legislation from Senators Richard Burr and Dianne Feinstein, the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, may be introduced as soon as next week, one of the sources said.
It would expose companies like Apple Inc, which is fighting a magistrate judge’s order to unlock an iPhone connected to the mass-shooting in San Bernardino, California, to contempt of court proceedings and related penalties, the source said.
IS Registration Forms Identify 22,000 Jihadis
Thousands of documents detailing phone numbers and family contacts are handed to Sky News by a disillusioned convert to the group.
Tens of thousands of documents, containing 22,000 names, addresses, telephone numbers and family contacts of Islamic State jihadis, have been obtained by Sky News.
Nationals from at least 51 countries, including the UK, had to give up their most personal information as they joined the terror organisation. Only when the 23 question form was filled in were they inducted into IS.
A lot of the names and their new Islamic State names on the registration forms are well known.
Abdel Bary, a 26-year-old from London joined in 2013 after visiting Libya, Egypt and Turkey. He is designated as a fighter but is better known in the UK as a rap artist. His whereabouts are unknown.
So he doesn’t just pretend to be stupid on the show…
Pawn Stars’ Chumlee arrested after police find meth and a gun while searching his home in sexual assault investigation
China is laying down the law on reincarnation, as Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama — Tibet’s enormously influential spiritual leader — enters his twilight years with no successor in sight. Although the ruling Communist Party is an officially atheist organization – officials are barred from practicing religion – it is perennially uncomfortable with forces outside of its control, and has for years demanded the power to regulate the supernatural affairs of Tibetan Buddhist figures, determining who can and cannot be reincarnated.
And God just laughed.

“LAPD’s First Openly Gay Officer Charged In Domestic Violence Case” was their headline.
They followed that up with
“The Los Angeles Police Department’s first openly gay officer will make his first court appearance Tuesday on domestic violence charges.”
I do sometimes make slight alterations to make the story funnier, but I usually ‘fess up when I do that.
The story does seem a bit confusing until you read it carefully – he WAS the LAPD’s first OPENLY gay officer but apparently as a result he spent a lot of time in court, perhaps as one of the first hate hoaxers – you might check the list here and see if he’s made it yet.
In fact he tied himself up in court for all but a very short period of his LAPD career so I can see why you question whether he was actually an LAPD officer or not, since apparently he never really did what they do, except the appearing in court part maybe.
Pingback: Pic of the Day | Socialism is not the Answer()
Thanks for the link. Here’s my take The guy is 57 years-old at the time of this domestic violence. The first photo we saw was a guy seemingly in his 20’s in a uniform that is blue (not LAPD) – and not brown like the sheriff’s department. In the second photo we see a guy about 40 or so in an LAPD uniform with LAPD badge and he is a sergeant which means he served with them for awhile. The two photos are both outdated if he is 57 years-old but what I infer is that he served originally with a smaller police department somewhere (1st photo), then got accepted at the LAPD academy where he started a career with them (this is common in small police departments where they get their feet wet before moving up to a better trained and far busier department). West Hollywood is an LAPD Division but it is surrounded by areas under County Sheriff jurisdiction so the DV was obviously not perpetrated within city limits, hence the arrest by Sheriff SWAT, County incarceration, and County media reports.
IOW he had an original photo taken with some unknown department, he served with and retired from LAPD, and he was arrested and booked by L.A. County Sheriffs. Now I wanna know where was the Highway Patrol when all this was going on? Thanks
