This country experienced massive hyper-inflation after seizing farms belonging to white people, and has just put in place yet another law to seize all white and foreign-owned (particularly Chinese and Nigerian) businesses and give them to hand-picked “indigenous” people (read, “cronies”).
Sometimes no matter how hard America’s freedom fighters try to be the good guys that they really are, certain people manage to find fault, as reported by Fox News on Dec. 4, 2013.
Be Careful Over the Senkaku Islands, Santa…
The good folks at the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) are ensuring both al Qaeda terrorists and possibly the Chinese Air Force steer clear of knocking Santa, his team of reindeer, and sleigh full of presents for the good little girls and boys are smoked out of the Christmas Eve skies.
For starters, you’re to be forgiven if you didn’t know that the Department of Health and Human Services launched a competition in August titled the “Healthy Young America Video Contest.” You’re also to be forgiven if you didn’t know that the grand prize of $2,000 (gee, I wonder whose money that is) was awarded Monday to one Erin McDonald, whose entry appears after the break:
The top lawyer for the IRS in the midst of the congressional investigation swirling around the nation’s tax collectors and their admitted targeting of the Tea Party has responded to a written inquiry, and managed to claim ignorance on 80 different responses, as reported by The Daily Mail of London, England on Dec. 4, 2013.

This can’t be coincidence. Blog reports in the last two weeks indicate that public schools in two different states have assigned students to identify their political affiliation by answering questions about policy issues (mostly social-policy issues). The assignments are handed in.
This isn’t a matter of students being asked to debate social-policy topics and think about arguments pro and con, an exercise that has been a staple of classroom activities in grades 7 and up for decades. The assignment is Continue reading
The latest “glitch,” around which Democrats have wrapped there’s-nothing-to-see-here-police tape, that “all” president’s lie about, and about which Republicans are required to lead cheers lest they be accused of “rooting for failure,” concerns the security of your personal health and other information you are mandated to impart to government bureaucrats so they can get you some insurance:
In a push for a higher minimum wage and more union members, ROC is also hiring a national campaign director to shepherd the center’s multimillion-dollar budget, partially plumped by taxpayer dollars.
A Happy Thanksgiving and Chanunkah (where applicable) to you all. Here is hoping you took time out from the turkey, the cranberries, the televised football, and all the rest to give thanks for your blessings. Whether you count Barack Obama’s health care reform law among the things you are thankful for remains to be seen — which is why his PAC, Organizing for Action, was encouraging spirited debate over the holiday on the merits of Obamacare.
Judging from a cross-section of tweets catalogued by Twitchy, some families took the president’s advice to heart. Whether any of the spirited combatants required treatment under the current, pre-Obamacare health delivery system is not stated, but it sounds as though some of the thoughtful discussions devolved into near-warfare.
Michelle Obama’s repeated admonitions to the American people to adopt a healthier lifestyle by eating more nutritious and less high-caloric junk food hasn’t stopped the First Family from ordering more dessert pies than main dishes at the White House Thanksgiving dinner, as reported by The New York Times on Nov. 28, 2013.

Daniel Halper of the Weekly Standard writes that attendees of a government-sponsored Obamacare event at the University of Central Arkansas last weekend received free condoms as a reward for
coming … er, attending.
Oh, no, not the dreaded “permanent record.” In England, it’s evidently called “educational record,” but it’s the same deal — a stain on your child’s reputation that will dog him for the rest of his (the school hopes) miserable life.
Daniel Hannan, writing at The Telegraph, shares a letter sent to parents of eight-year-old students at Littleton Green Community School, in South Staffordshire. The document is reproduced below.
There’s automated efficiency, and then there’s the Brave New World. Writer Nicole Hopkins’s mother, a resident of Washington state, found that out when she used Washington’s health plan exchange website to find a new insurance plan, and was presented with exactly one “option”: Medicaid. Ms. Hopkins mère has always paid for private insurance, and fully intended to continue doing so, even when Obamacare caused her preferred policy to be cancelled.
