    Reliable investigative sources in California say the radical Muslims are planning to go on a rampage in the City of Los Angeles, killing anyone who is a US citizen.

    Police fear that the death toll could be as high as 3 or 4.

    For the Marine presently being held in Mexico; the common sense trade would be the following 5:1 trade, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Kerry & Clinton for our Marine….. And, just to make the deal more inciting for the Mexicans I would throw in Schumer, Rangle and Boxer to seal the deal…….

    The Obama Legacy will linger like the stench of rotting roadside kill.

    Given the collective anger over the exchange of five Taliban commanders for what appears to be a U.S. Army deserter, combined with the anger from the Veterans Administration revelations, one might be tempted to think that Obama would be impeached or would resign, but neither of those options will occur.

    He’s not leaving because he doesn’t care what Americans think and only cared when the issues involved forthcoming elections. He was, after all, elected twice. He doesn’t even care what the members of Congress think, relying now entirely on executive orders and by working his way through federal agencies and departments.

    He knows that his approval ratings fluctuate between 48% and 51% on any given day—a testimony to the stupidity that liberals embrace while accusing conservatives of being stupid—and he knows that the vast bulk of Americans are too busy trying to hold onto their jobs, if they have one, and that most do not spend much time paying attention to the issues. Large numbers receive some form of federal assistance and that is their sole concern.

    Let's See If I Understand This Correctly??

    I knew this post would draw out my two favorite progressive and liberal democrats into the light of day...

    You two just can’t seem to see the forest for all the trees, “trees” being all of the present government run, managed and operated program failures that I listed. The programs are all managed, operated and run by unionized managers and employees, no free market competition, no one held accountable for bad decisions or failures, tax payer paid bonuses and raises freely given for longevity vs productivity, efficiency increases or cost cutting programs. When is the last time you have seen a government program closed, employees laid off or eliminated because it met it’s goals or went broke or bankrupt? I venture to say, never in your life time or mine!

    Now to the meat of the discussion.... If you like what has been done to our past and present war Veterans by the government run and managed VA system for the last 40 years, Congressional Democrats and Republicans alike, past and present, as well as the present administration should be held accountable for the travesty that they have inflicted on all our Veterans and their families. Yes, they all knew what was and has been going in our VA system across our great country for many years. It’s been a political football with no resolution and no one held accountable.

    So, if you want to continue to support the new, Health Care System, forced through Congress by the progressive liberal Democrats, like other government operated, managed and run programs, just step back and take a hard look at our present VA system and that is what Obama Care will look like in just a few short years.....

    The US is burning and the progressive and liberal Democrats, like yourselves, are fiddling.....

  • THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE was established in 1775 – they’ve had 234 years to get it right; it is broke, and even though heavily subsidized, it can’t compete with private sector FedEx and UPS services.
    SOCIAL SECURITY was established in 1935 – they’ve had 74 years to get it right; it is broke.
    FANNIE MAE was established in 1938 – they’ve had 71 years to get it right; it is broke.
    FREDDIE MAC was established in 1970 – they’ve had 39 years to get it right; it is broke. Together Fannie and Freddie have now led the entire world into the worst economic collapse in 80 years.
    THE WAR ON POVERTY was started in 1964 – they’ve had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our hard earned money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the poor”; it hasn’t worked.
    MEDICARE and MEDICAID were established in 1965 – they’ve had 44 years to get it right; they are both broke; and now our government dares to mention them as models for all US health care.
    AMTRAK was established in 1970 – they’ve had 39 years to get it right; last year they bailed it out as it continues to run at a loss!
    WAR ON DRUGS started over four decades ago.  Failed.
    This year, a trillion dollars was committed in the massive political payoff called the Stimulus Bill of 2009; it shows NO sign of working; it’s been used to increase the size of governments across America, and raise government salaries while the rest of us suffer from economic hardships.
    CASH FOR CLUNKERS was established in 2009 and went broke in 2009 – after 80% of the cars purchased turned out to be produced by foreign companies and dealers nationwide are buried under bureaucratic paperwork demanded by a government that is not yet paying them what was promised.
    NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND: $54.4 billion per year.  America ranks 17th in education compared to other modern countries.
    DEPT. OF ENERGY: $26.4 billion budget.  Gas prices at all time high!
    FAIR HOUSING ACT:  The Feds forced the Banks to issue Subprime Mortgages to minorities with bad credit.  Major cause of current recession.  841,073 foreclosures in 2012.
    FEDERAL RESERVE BANK:  Broke!  There is no “reserve” just printed paper money with no backing.
    So with a perfect 100% failure rate and a record that proves that each and every “service”  or  “program”  shoved down our throats by an over-reaching government turns into disaster, how could any informed American trust our government to run or even set policies for America’s health care system – -  17% of our economy?
    Maybe each of us has a personal responsibility to let others in on this brilliant record, and then help remove those from office who are voting to destroy capitalism and destroy our grandchildren’s future.
    OBAMA HEALTH PLAN _____________________________________________________
    I’m leaving this space blank, because it won’t take long until another program, THE OBAMA HEALTH PLAN, finds its place as another government program that has failed. Please enter Obama Health Care Plan in space provided.
    After reading the above, how can any American with half a brain actually believe that somehow this government health care plan will be different?  You have to be on drugs, drunk or a real dumbo to believe it will be different. Wonderful promises about lowering premiums, having better health care, etc. etc., it goes against reality and past experience.   So keep on dreaming, you dreamers, and you will pay the piper, and it will start soon. And please, think of this blog when reality hits!
    Stay well — You better!
