    When there are too many people on the take who have a vote on the distribution of earnings of others a reckoning is going to occur. This statement has been supported throughout human history. It is a fair statement to say that every one should pull their own weight in survival and not depend on others if at all possible; self respect is at stake.

    PETA brainwashes kids, puts them in danger.

    They need to start cracking down on Hollywood if they’re so dedicated to this cause.

    Another PETA hit piece – this one about a ‘journalist’ who admitted he wasn’t cut out to be one because he refused to write from an objective viewpoint.

    QUOTE: “I therefore had zero interest in pursuing (or even pretending to pursue) the disingenuous sort of “objectivity” that required a “fair and balanced” journalist to lend equal consideration…”

    He refused to even consider one side of the story, so his piece was taken down (off the web) and he was told to add some balance to it.

    quote: “Here’s an important point to keep in mind as I assess these requests: by the standards of journalistic convention, they weren’t necessarily unreasonable.”

    Instead he ‘quit’, probably because they told him that was the last time he would be allowed to write such nonsense and still get paid.

    Slain slumlord’s unpaid debt helped sink Obama’s bank

    A slain Brooklyn slumlord’s shady business practices helped sink a bank that counted President Obama as a customer and ex-Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon as a member of its board.

    Supreme Court justices were skeptical Monday of President Obama’s claim of almost unlimited appointment powers, saying he appeared to be trampling on the founders’ vision when he tried to do an end-run around the Senate in 2012.

    While the justices appeared to struggle with how far to go in their ruling, most of them, including Mr. Obama’s nominees to the court, took dim views of the president’s move to name three members to the National Labor Relations Board in January 2012.
    If they ruled narrowly, they could simply invalidate Mr. Obama’s appointments by finding he tried to make them when the Senate considered itself in session, not in recess. But the court also could go further and limit the president’s recess powers to the short period after the Senate adjourns at the end of each year.
    Justice Stephen G. Breyer said the Founding Fathers didn’t intend for the recess power to be a political tool to help the president avoid Senate approval.
    “I can’t find anything that says the purpose of this clause has anything at all to do with political fights between Congress and the president,” he told Mr. Verrilli.

    Some costs not considered when tallying up the price of obamacare.

    Robert Laszewski—a prominent consultant to health insurance companies—recently wrote in a remarkably candid blog post that, while Obamacare is almost certain to cause insurance costs to skyrocket even higher than it already has, “insurers won’t be losing a lot of sleep over it.” How can this be? Because insurance companies won’t bear the cost of their own losses—at least not more than about a quarter of them. The other three-quarters will be borne by American taxpayers.
    We knew this would be coming but the CBO and other government bean counters didn’t count it in their considerations or obamacare never would have gotten off the ground.


    Oregon’s Obamacare Online Enrollment System Still Doesn’t Work More Than 3 Months After It Was Supposed To Launch

    Several states and the federal government have struggled with exchange technology, but none as much as Oregon. Cover Oregon’s online enrollment system still doesn’t work more than three months after it was supposed to launch, and the state has hired or reassigned hundreds of workers to manually process applications. Officials say they hope the online system will be operational by March.

    It launched two months late, but the rollout of the Spanish version of the federal Obamacare portal has been just as disastrous as its English counterpart’s October debut, according to an Associated Press report.

    This time, the problem is lousy translations and glitches that send users back to the English version of HealthCare.gov.
    The AP says the translations on so poor that many users feel they were computer-generated. The name of the site, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, can be litterally read as “for the caution of health.”
    One health navigator who works in Miami told the wire service that, if anything, the site is written in “Spanglish.”

    A key requirement for obamacare to succeed? High youth enrollment.

    The new private health plans available under Obamacare drew in fewer young and healthy Americans than needed for the administration to make healthcare reform a market success in the first wave of enrollment, an official report showed on Monday.

    Twenty-four percent of the 2.2 million people who signed up for private coverage between October 1 and December 28 belonged to a target audience of 18- to 34-year-olds, according to the first administration report to provide a demographic breakdown on enrollment in the new plans offered under President Barack Obama’s healthcare law.

    That compares with a target of closer to 38 percent set before the program’s botched October 1 rollout, when administration officials believed that about 2.7 million of a forecast 7 million enrollees for 2014 would be between 18 and 35.

    Maybe the moonbats were a bit too quick to jump on the new Pope’s bandwagon?

    They won’t like this much.

    Pope Francis on Monday criticized abortion as evidence of a “throwaway culture” that wastes people as well as food, saying such a mentality is a threat to world peace.

    He’s also apparently sympathetic to the ‘amnesty for illegal immigrants’ crowd so they’re good with that, naturally.

    Harry Reid, Obama’s obstructionist lap dog.

    The Iran nuclear deal is in place. And Senate majority leader Harry Reid is preventing the Senate from voting on Iran sanctions to be implemented in case the Iran deal fails. Reid is holding up the vote at the urging of President Obama.

    The Emergency Committee for Israel is calling on Reid to allow a vote on the sanctions bill that’s supported by many Democrats and Republicans, and well over half of the Senate.

    “With today’s announcement of an implementation agreement with Iran, President Obama has shown a willingness to be tough in confronting the pro-Israel majority in Congress, threatening to veto any legislation that would punish Iranian deception or prevent the White House from acquiescing to a bad deal with Iran.

    “With Iran, on the other hand, Obama is willing to accept an agreement that weakens even the original bad deal he announced two months ago. It is a deal that guarantees a permanent Iranian nuclear weapons capability and grants a new concession by allowing Iran to continue developing ever more advanced centrifuges during the talks. It is a deal that, as Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister boasted today, rolls back nothing and means Iran ‘can return to the previous situation within a day.'”

    Obama goes to war, again, THIS TIME AGAINST DEMOCRATS!

    Catch the typical Obama lie here:

    The White House is now openly declaring that Senate Democrats who support new sanctions against Iran are itching for war, but their campaign to pressure their own party members has been going on for months and has done little to dissuade Democrats from supporting sanctions.

    The White House brought their fight with Congressional Democrats out in the open Thursday evening when National Security Staff member Bernadette Meehan sent an incendiary statement lashing out at pro-sanctions Democrats to a select group of reporters, accusing them of being in favor of a strike on Iran.

    Did you see it? They insist on SANCTIONS if Iran cheats on the deal and Obama says they want us to STRIKE IRAN MILITARILY.

    That’s not the bad part. The bad part is something near 50% of the voting population will believe Obama and side with him.

    In fact Iran is already publicly announcing they’re going to cheat, via a ‘secret side deal’.

    Key elements of a new nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers are contained in an informal, 30-page text not yet publicly acknowledged by Western officials, Iran’s chief negotiator said Monday.

    It’s actually all in his head, does not exist in the real world.

    Meanwhile Obama’s plan to make energy prohibitively expensive is still working./a>

    It’s a new year, and a new battle with rising gas prices. Jan. 1 set a record for the highest price ever.

    For the fifth straight year, New Year’s Day brought higher gas prices than the year before–and 2014 actually set a record for the highest price for a gallon of gas ever on Jan. 1.

    This with the energy industry moving towards freeing us from dependence on our enemies DESPITE Obama’s efforts to shut down any and all domestic energy production.

    So… how’s that claimed Obama economic recovery going?

    Now what does this tell you:

    About half of the nation’s 3,069 county economies are still short of their prerecession economic output, reflecting the uneven economic recovery, according to a new report from the National Association of Counties.

    National statistics “mask the reality on the ground,” said Emilia Istrate, the association’s director of research and one of the authors of the report. “That’s where Americans feel the economy. They feel it locally.”

    The ‘national statistics’ are the Commerce Department figures, which, of course, Obama has likely directed should be ‘adjusted’ to show recovery, just as he’s cooking the unemployment numbers, and not reporting on those who’ve given up, so as to paint a better picture than reality would.

    Moonbats Sign Petition to Allow U.S. Soldiers to Commandeer Anyone’s Home and Live There For Free

    Mark Dice likes to do these on the Oceanside pier because he gets a lot of moonbats visiting from the OC and also tourists from around the world, though a good majority of those he presents probably are from CA – we have more than our share of moonbats, particularly because some states were found to be giving them one way tickets here in order to get rid of them!

    Moonbat bans of incandescent bulbs have left this bird rescue center in the cold.

    Ottawa’s Wild Bird Care Centre has put the call out for incandescent light bulbs, which it uses to provide warmth for injured and recovering birds, after the federal government banned manufacturers from making the bulbs.

    In Canada, the more energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs are considered the norm. The incandescent light bulbs use more power, but they are also warmer and serve an important role inside incubators.

    Oh man, she shot him in the eye!

    At the scene, Joeann Smith told police that she and her brother began playing with her loaded Rosco .22-caliber revolver while they were drinking Seagrams Gin and King Cobra beer. According to the police report, the pair was going to fire the gun into the air from the back porch, but Mr. Smith said the gun would not fire because the bullets were old.
    The report further states that while they were in the living room, Joeann Smith handed the gun to her brother who in turn, handed it back. She then pulled the trigger. A bullet struck her brother in the eye, according to the report, and he fell to the floor.
    I wonder if the “BANG” was followed by “SEE, I TOLE YOU SO!”

    NOTE this happened in Chicago, a city with some of the stricter gun laws in the nation.

    Police are searching for a man who allegedly tried to rape a woman on the subway.

    The woman was riding the northbound 3 train at about 4 p.m. on Thursday when she said she noticed the suspect masturbating, police said.

    She told police she moved to another car, but he followed her and tried to rape her, police said she told them.

    The sketch generated from the victim’s description is a black guy in a hoodie.

    In 1973, gasoline was 35 cents a gallon….then the “Energy Crisis” hit…we were all told there was only 20 years of oil left….in 1976, the price of a gallon of gas was .50 cents a gallon…..now jump 41 years later…we’re told we have more than 200 years worth of oil available, there is NO crisis and gas is ALMOST $4.00 A GALLON. How can that be? By the way, plastic is a derivative of crude oil….how can gas be so expensive and yet plastics have hardly budged in prices? Makes NO sense.

    It is the invariable habit of bureaucracies, at all times and everywhere, to assume…that every citizen is a criminal. Their one apparent purpose, pursued with a relentless and furious diligence, is to convert the assumption into a fact. They hunt endlessly for proofs, and, when proofs are lacking, for mere suspicions. The moment they become aware of a definite citizen, John Doe, seeking what is his right under the law, they begin searching feverishly for an excuse for withholding it from him. ~ H.L. Mencken

    Thug Babies and Their Parental Units

    “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

    “No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit.”

    “Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”

    “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

    “[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”

    No, those aren’t the deranged rambings of some Chinese functionary intent on enforcing Red China’s “one-child” policy. Nor were they written by some sick racist KKK Grand Kliegel committed to the suppression, if not eradication, of all African-Americans.

    Rather, they are the deranged ramblings of the racist eugenicist, Margaret Higgins Sanger, founder of what would later become the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

    Aside from what Sanger’s beliefs say about the busiest abortion mills in America, Planned Parenthood “clinics,” and what they say about African-American extremists such as Al Sharpton who enthusiastically support an organization founded on the white racist principle of sterilizing and exterminating blacks, what do Sanger’s beliefs say about the “thug babies” video?

    To explain, last Tuesday, the Omaha Police Officers Association posted a brief, horrific video of a black 2-year-old in a diaper spewing the vilest obscenities and flipping the bird to the laughing videographer and his associate who are apparently the child’s unidentified parents. Headlined, “Heartbreaking Video Shows ‘The Thug Cycle’ “, the video was soon re-posted on Facebook, went viral, and understandably infuriated Omaha’s African-American community.

    The video features the two-year-old calling the videographer a “b—- a– n—–“ and repeated “suck my d—“ to a woman who asked him to use the phrase and responding to her, “You a ho, b—-!” (Fill in the blanks.)

    It was a consolation to all but the parents that Omaha police removed the child and three other kids from their residence and placed them in protective custody out of concern for their safety. Yet, the Omaha city prosecutor’s office determined that no crimes had been committed.

    Regrettably, teaching one’s offspring gutter language and gestures and filming that base education does not constitute criminal activity either in Nebraska or in any other state in the Union.

    On OmahaPOA.com, police characterized the video as “sickening, heartbreaking footage, . . . (Read more at http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/?p=35132.)
