Nice bank you got there…
Author Peter Schweizer made the talk-show rounds a few weeks back to tout his new book Extortion, which examines the process by which a U.S. federal government with a huge regulatory portfolio routinely extorts its citizens.
Basically, whatever can be regulated makes a basis for extortion. Holding the whip-hand of the state over someone gives you the power to make threats – Continue reading

In a speech Wednesday, President Obama “declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of ‘all’ of the White House’s efforts ‘for the rest of my presidency.’” But he offered nothing new to advance that goal. Instead, he just peddled stale proposals from the past, such as increased government handouts, that do nothing to expand the opportunity to earn a good living.
For example, he “called for an extension of emergency unemployment benefits,” even though “House Republicans have signaled they likely will not support an extension,” noted The Hill newspaper.
Day 65 of Obamacare’s Healthcare.gov roll-out (also known as Day 4 of the President Obama-guaranteed new and improved re-launch) produces lesson no. 65 on how not to build and launch a website.
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:
Remember Obama Money? Unlike Obamaphones, Obama Money didn’t really exist, though thousands of ignorant Detroiters lined up for free cash in the early months of his presidency. When asked where the money would come from, one of the people on the street answered, “I don’t know — his stash.”
She hearts Obamacare.
The narrative — a segment of the population singing the praises of Obamacare — is welcome news for a president whose continuing slide in the polls reveals that Americans aren’t wild about his health care law. Whether he will invite Caressa Kisses to testify at his next Rose Garden event is another matter.
Carson City, Nev., ABC affiliate KXTV notes that “independent contractors” at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, one of the few legal brothels in the country, have been virtually uninsurable till now.
Worship the tree, sacrifice the human…
A veritable death sentence has been handed down on a number of American citizens via the cancellation of their health insurance policies per the Affordable Care Act, as reported by LifeNews.com on Nov. 28 and 29, 2013.
Radical environmentalists and militant animal-rights activists have been accused of neo-paganism owing to their preference for the well being of flora and fauna over that of fellow humans.

Jeannie DeAngelis of the American Thinker wrote an interesting article yesterday titled, “Liberal Semantics and the Redefining of Death Panels.”
Death Panels is a harsh, but accurate, phrase coined by Sarah Palin while describing the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a board of unelected bureaucrats who would be charged with making cost-saving decisions about health care, effectively taking decision-making out of the hands of doctors and their patients.
It is the Murphy’s law of politics. When the left accuses the right of something, it means they are doing it themselves. This is a simple formula that is a sure-fire win, every time.
Usually, the tactic is not as blatant as it was when President Obama announced at the start of a West Coast fundraising tour for the Democratic Party, that unlike himself, the GOP is ”more focused on positioning themselves for the next election.” Continue reading
In 1936, shortly after his re-election, FDR had a strategy on how to deal with Supreme Court Judges who overturned aspects of his state-sovereignty-robbing New Deal legislation.
He decided to “pack the Supreme Court” with judges who would not consider his unconstitutional laws well, “unconstitutional.”
Twitter rumor takes on a life of it’s own…
The 2010 presidential election had a particular politically correct phrase for functionally illiterate mouth breathers who relied on The Daily Show, The View and Pimp with a Limp for their news and informational needs.
The societal leeches who think Gubmint Trick-or-Treat lasts from January 1 to December 31 have a name.
Civic parasites, thy name is Low Information Voter.
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. But the new health plan exchange Continue reading
President Obama was quoted in Business Insider yesterday as saying, ”If you got a majority of folks who believe in something, then it should pass.”
Like Obamacare? Anyway, the ramifications of this statement will likely fly right over the heads of the Low Information Voters, who nod along and cheer even when Obama discusses his creepy “civilian national security force” or when he rewrites the Bill of Rights to include health insurance as a “right” granted by the government.
