OBAMACARNAGE: HOW MANY PEOPLE ACTUALLY PAID PREMIUMS?

For months we have been told that an estimated 15% to 20% of ObamaCare sign-ups have not paid any premiums, and therefore are not actually sign-ups at all. Well, you can forget that estimate.  It is not even close. From the House Energy & Commerce Committee\’s own web site we have this: Dataprovided to the committee by every insurance provider in the healthcare...

THE DONALD STERLING PUNISHMENT: WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT?

This is not a prediction.  This is an expectation. NBA team owners will vote unanimously to uphold the punishment meted out to Los Angeles Clippers owner donald sterling.  How could they not?  Any owner who voted against it would be seen as a racist apologist…and would be tarred and feathered by the players, the media, and (outwardly at least) most fans and most other...

DAMN THAT PRESIDENT BUSH (CONT.)

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for 4th quarter 2013 grew at an anemic 2.6%. GDP for 1st quarter 2014 was expected to grow at an even worse 1.2% GDP for 1st quarter 2014 actually grew at a virtually nonexistent 0.1%. Damn that President Bush.  It\’s still his fault….five and a half years after he left office.  Just ask any member of the Obama administration.

SECRETARY OF STATE KERRY\’S “ACCOMPLISHMENTS”

I have often blogged about how little in the way of accomplishments John Kerry has to show for his 30 year plus career in politics, very much including his short stint as Secretary of State.  But Edward-Isaac Dovere, writing for politico.com has shown me the error of my ways.  Here, excerpted from his latest article, is a list that, admittedly, I had not considered: Nameone...

THE WALL ST. JOURNAL/NBC NEWS POLL

I watched part of the Today show this morning, and was told that the just-released Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows that, while approval ratings for President Obama and ObamaCare are still in negative territory, they are improved over last month.  The end. But there\’s a bit more to this poll that I thought you might be interested to learn about (click here to see all of its...

THE LAWLESSNESS OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION: SEBELIUS

Does any member in the Obama administration think they owe an explanation of anything to anyone? This time it is the thoroughly incompetent Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Kathleen Sebelius.  It seems that she is pulling a “lois lerner” and refusing to testify before a congressional committee – a senate committee, which is chaired by a Democrat. Excerpted from...

THE BENGHAZI LIE

Before I start, let me acknowledge that Benghazi is not a scandal, it is not at all meaningful, and anyone who brings it up is a right wing racist teabagging Neanderthal who hates Barack Obama because he is a Black man and hates Hillary Clinton because she is a woman. That must be true, I suppose, because I have heard versions of it from various mainstream media venues for the past year and a...

THE ABC NEWS POLL BLACKOUT

Today the Washington Post/ABC News poll came out, and showed nothing but bad news for Barack Obama.  You can read about it on my earlier blog, or by going straight to the Washington Post story. But if you expected to find out about it on ABC\’s network news show tonight, you were shut out.  Incredible though this might seem, ABC News\’s own poll, with its terrible numbers...

MEDIA MATTERS MUTTERS

You\’d think that a major-league advocate for unions would be fine with its own people unionizing, wouldn\’t you? Well, this is mediamatters.org we\’re talking about….so think again. Here is a statement which has been put on the SEIU (Service Employees International Union) web site by a group of its employees, which tells you what is really going on there (the...
