THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Grammy-winning singer Patti Austin.  This is how she tried to convince a rally of mostly Black citizens in  Georgia to vote on election day: “There\’sa lot of an angry white men out there.  Andthey\’re old. And they\’re trying to hang on to their pots of gold.So go vote.” This was presumably done in the...

ARE ILLEGAL ALIENS BRINGING IN ENTEROVIRUS D68?

THE REPUBLICAN “ELECTION VIOLATION” LETTER

Ken Berwitz We have finally found a sleazy campaign strategy that the left wing blogosphere is up in arms about. I hope you don\’t think it\’s one of those overtly racist mailers which suggest, among other things, that if you don\’t vote Democrat Black children will be shot in the street.  That wasn\’t a problem to this crew. Nope, the problem is a mailer sent by...

CDC: CONFUSED, DAZED, CONTRADICTORY

October 29:  The CDC advises us that ebola can be spread by a sneeze, particularly if the sneeze droplets land on a hard surface (like, for example, a doorknob. October 31:  The CDC deletes the warning and advises us that there is “no evidence” ebola can be spread by a sneeze. When do our media call out this buffoonery – this riculous, dangerous buffoonery?  When...

DID THE OBAMACARE CANCELLATION NOTICES GO OUT?

 Legally, the notices to people losing their insurance coverage because it is not in compliance with ObamaCare must be available no less than 60 days in advance. Tomorrow – Sunday, November 2 – is the 60 day mark. Unless you happen to get Sunday mail deliveries, therefore, today is the last day this can be done by mail….and tomorrow is the last day...

(NOT) RUNNING ON BARACK OBAMA\’S RECORD

The two major “achievements” of President Barack Obama\’s time in office are “The Affordable Care Act” – more commonly known as ObamaCare, and the so-called “stimulus package”, which was supposed to put countless shovel-ready jobs into play. We are at the end of the midterm campaign, almost 6 years after both were enacted. How many Democrats ran on...

“SHE CAN CANCEL OUT YOUR VOTE” ALERT

I think I\’m going to start a new series:  “He/She Can Cancel Out Your Vote”.  This one is reserved for people who make especially dumb comments – members of the low information, or no information, or wrong information, or make-it-up-as-you-go-along information crowd. Let\’s kick it off with Lizz Winstead – who is living proof that people who are...

SCOTT BROWN AND “CANDY” PINDELL

Remember that Presidential debate in 2012, when Candy Crowley – the moderator, who, by definition, could not offer any opinion about what either candidate said – told Mitt Romney he was wrong to say President Obama spent two weeks telling us the Benghazi attack was because of a video, not terrorism?  Remember how President Obama smugly asked her to “say that a little...

THE INSURANCE CANCELLATION NOTICES: HAVE THEY BEEN SENT?

Excerpted from my blog of October 9th:  as things now stand, 13 states, and Washington DC will be cancelling the health insurance of hundreds of thousands of people at the end of the month – because they do not comply with the requirements of ObamaCare. …federal law mandates that people whose policies will be canceled must be notified at least 60 days beforehand.  And...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote – and it is as breathtakingly stupid a quote as we are going to see in this election campaign – comes to us from Louisiana\’s incumbent Democrat Senator, Mary Landrieu, who surely should have known better than to say it. Ms. Landrieu is in the battle of her political life against Republican challenger Bill Cassidy.  Currently, most polls show her losing...

SCARING VOTERS & THE POWER OF MEDIA BIAS

“Who you vote for is your secret. But whether or not you vote is public record”. “We will be reviewing voting records . . . to determine whether you joined your neighbors who voted in 2014.” “If you do not vote this year, we will be interested to hear why not.” Do you find that language threatening?  I know I would if I received it from a political...
