This Is Funny-I Don't Care Who You Are!

Sometimes you just have to wonder about some people and what they are thinking!

I have always admired Men of Few Words.

I would even suggest this being a proper response to every Politician that refuses to cut Spending and lower Taxes.

Court Orders DOJ To Release Fast And Furious Information
Unfortunately all that information was on Lois Lerner's hard drive. It was accidentally erased and when the drive was being transported to Staples to see if the erased info could be recovered, she accidentally backed over it with her car.

Where does the insanity stop?

I just watched the crawl on my local news channel say that Congress had passed a xxx million dollar immigration bill that had no chance of becoming law! Is it possible to stop the salaries of the legislators that wasted their time on this? Could you somehow hold them personally liable for all the running expenses of the government while they waste its time?

After an excellent landing etc...

It's important to get on the record for future reference, even if seemingly tilting at windmills.

For example, Obamacare got no Republican support in congress. It was passed by Democrats who had total control of congress and signed by the president. As we begin to suffer the consequences for the law, that wisdom will hopefully become apparent to voters and we can gain the electoral support we need to recover our country from it.

The current immigration debacle is another example of ill-conceived Democrat policy. The consequences of that are also just beginning.

Another example is profligate spending and deficits. We haven't begun to pay for that yet.

To be accurate, the House of Representatives passed a bill.

The Senate had already left for its summer, five week long, recess without passing anything.

Barry then gets to b1tch to the cameras that the GOP is being obstructionist because "they passed a bill that can't pass and, if it did, I'd veto it."

Without being accurate that it takes both Houses of Congress to pass legislation. And that when a differing bill is passed in each House, a compromise is the Constitutional method of ironing out differences. Obviously, that can't happen if the Senate is already gone.

And for Barry to complain because the opposition didn't give him what he wants is rich. "My way or the highway" is a governing strategy that works for Putin.

Barry is no Putin.

Please, that is an insult to Beta males !

Males have balls, like the one on the left.


As I posted on another thread a few days ago, one is bellicose and
has the balls to back it up, the other can be bellicose doesn't !

If the media doesn't cover that inconvenient truth, does it really exist?

Tends to run counter to Barry's "woe is me" mantra and, for some reason, the national and world media is still his lapdog.

I believe it is because they can't bring themselves to admit they were wrong and the 'intellectual' is actually a lightweight.

He is them.

40 Mind-Blowing Quotes From Barack Hussein Obama On Islam And Christianity - Now The End Begins : Now The End Begins


You wonder about Welfare Man being a Muslim?

He sure gives plenty of evidence to support that concern.

If JFK had to surmount the obstacle of being a "Catholic", any question B Hussein Obama would surely have had a very tall obstacle to get over.

Barney Frank, recently retired Democrat Congressman from Massachusetts and an unabashed uber-liberal, has come out (pun not intended) that Obama willfully lied when selling Obamacare.

Barney Frank is saying this.

Same guy who claimed he didn't know his boyfriend was running a brothel in the basement of his own, Frank's, townhouse.

When you've lost Barney Frank, it doesn't bode well for Team Barry.

Not a scientific poll, if such a thing really exists, but just from personal observations, more and more doctors, that I know and know of, that were very pro-Obamacare, now hate it.

Well, being one, I know LOTS of doctors. To a man (or woman) they all would like to see everyone have some sort of health coverage. However, the regulatory side of Obamacare is so complex, particularly the mandate to use the currently available poorly designed electronic medical records systems -- I truly do not know of a single doc supportive of the ways Obamacare will work. And many, especially the experienced ones over age 50, are looking to quit medicine.

I believe this is exactly what the planners envisioned and desired.

obg,

Not that I disagree with you but what would be the "Planners" end game if driving Doctors out of the business was their Goal? How would that work towards Health Care for everyone?

Or would it be thought the Private Sector could be "Fundamentally Transformed" into something that was in the Image of the Veterans Administration style of healthcare?
