ABSURDITIES

Absurdity

“There are some people who have very bad insurance, but they don’t know it because they don’t understand the fine print. You know, you’re right. You should be able to keep the health insurance you have even if it’s not very good. Even if you can get insurance on healthcare.gov, you should be able to keep it. And that’s the part we’ve extended.”

TRANSLATION

You don’t know what you are talking about because you don’t understand what’s good for you. But, the Obama regime will try to make you feel better for another year — and those off you who still have your old insurance won’t get cancellation notices right before the mid-term election.

HOWEVER

Most of the cancellation notices have already happened. Last year at least 4.7 million Americans received one. In fact, getting rid of that old insurance plan was part of the Obamacare design. Obamacare cancels many insurance policies that individuals chose based on their wants, needs, or ability to afford, and it replaces those with what the government deems “better” insurance. But this gives little choice for consumers and increases cost.

CONCLUSION

According to the President, it’s ordinary Americans that don’t understand health insurance. But every revelation  about Obamacare screams that this law is completely unworkable. Its creation and implementation have been backed by coercion making it ham-handed at best, and disastrous at worst. America deserves better.

Abassadors

“More cash than competence.”

All it took was $500,000 donated to Obama’s campaign to become an ambassador. It’s downright embarrassing. The pick for Argentina has never been there and can’t speak the language. The former soap opera producer is the chosen one for Hungary, also can’t speak the language and couldn’t answer of what strategic importance Hungary was to the USA.

American Jihad

Published February 25, 2014 by herb7734

There are jihad training camps scattered throughout the USA. The FBI documents a network of 22 so far as they know. One such, known as Mamoudberg is located in Brazoria County, Texas. It is affiliated with the umbrella group known as MOA (Muslims of the Americas). This group is run by Jamaal ul-Fugra a terrorist associated with the group that murdered journalist, Daniel Pearl. They managed to infiltrate the constabulary of a nearby county called Fort Bend, but he was discovered when he tried to prevent the Sherriff of Brazoria County from serving a warrant on the Mamousberg camp, and was subsequently fired.

Comments On Recent Events

NBC did a squishy, fawning description of Russia, for the benefit, I guess, of those attending and viewing the Olympics. They did briefly mention that it was a Marxist-Leninist totalitarian state under Stalin that from 1917 to 1991 slaughtered tens of millions of people. I guess that killing millions doesn’t count for much when you’re hosting athletic games.

President Obama has bypassed congress by issuing executive orders concerning Obamacare and Immigration Reform. His authority to do so is constitutionally questionable, but despite this he continues to usurp the authority of congress. Bob Schieffer of ABC News seems to opine that the GOP is merely being petty by bringing this point up. In my opinion the GOP has not been forceful enough. Circumventing the Constitution is no petty matter. 

At the annual National Prayer Breakfast President Obama said that promoting religious freedom (is) a key part of U.S. foreign policy. Of course, he failed to mention his administration’s intolerance toward a religion that abhors birth control or abortion, and its intransigence toward modification of laws for its benefit. Its not as if the Catholic faith is some little sect in Burnt Stump Arkansas.

Black History Month

Published February 9, 2014 by herb7734

I just read an article by Lloyd Marcus, a Black Conservative. It got me thinking — an always dangerous enterprise. He stated that Black History Month could also be known as “Hate America Month.” Every negative occurrence that ever happened in this country between Blacks and Whites seems to be dredged up and repeated ad nauseam. It is a matter of exploiting race to further the liberal, progressive agenda. Why not, instead, celebrate black achievements and history. There are many examples that could be shown of great men and women who were black. But, let’s look at one recent one, whom the people behind BHM would never select because his political stance is different from theirs.

Herman Cain was (and still is) a successful business man who was appointed by Pillsbury to head up their Godfather’s Pizza chain. He went on to become CEO of the National Restaurant Association and an outspoken political voice. He is an excellent role model, but will never be shown as such by the black community because of political agendas. Instead, we get a “role model” whose national career is marked by unprecedented lies and scandals, yet fear of racial prejudice labeling prevents honest coverage and fear of speaking out. Fear of race — a great method for silencing opposition.

Mr. Marcus supplies us with an excellent example that could overcome the PC police and the race exploiters. If we could only interact like Star Trek’s crew of the Enterprise. Races living together without race being an issue. Is that too much to ask?
