“This thing is working”? Widows of Alabama county workers dropped from health plans. The price of insuring the uninsured is making more people uninsured. Or, as the Democrat-Media complex explains it: SHUT UP!

Obama punts on Keystone Pipeline decision. Too busy speechifying at fundraisers and taking selfies for his Twitter account, apparently. The State Department announced on Good Friday (hoping most people wouldn’t be paying attention) that the decision has been delayed indefinitely.

Rahm Emanuel lying about crime statistics in Chicago. To hide how badly gun control and, by extension, Rahm are failing, they reclassify crimes as lesser offenses or “non-crimes.” In one case, a woman in an empty warehouse was tied naked to a chair with wires, gagged, tortured, and killed – Chicago PD reclassified it as a “noncriminal death.”

Indicted Businessman Names Harry Reid as Alleged Recipient of Massive Bribe. The only result of this is most of the other Democrats will be wanting a piece of the action. Evidently Mr. Johnson thinks his “philanthropy” is directed at Dirty Harry.

Dem Rep on ObamaCare: “I think we may lose the Senate.” So they shouldn’t say “ObamaCare” either? WTF can they say? How about “Adios”?

U.S. to announce ground troops to Poland, says… Polish defense minister. Ooooh, a pivot back to Europe… Hope the troops will be given weapons.

New York Common Core standards omit “liberty” from founding principles. Somehow they missed the famous “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” phrase in the Declaration of Independence and never learned the name of that giant woman who stands holding a torch in the harbor. Here’s what they came up with instead:

“The United States is founded on the democratic principles of equality, fairness, and respect for authority and rules… Students will explore democratic principles such as dignity for all, equality, fairness, and respect for authority and rules…”

So forget about Ms. Libertas, little munchkins, and concentrate on learning obedience.

Joe Biden’s son running for governor. Like his father he’s had brain surgery and like Harry Reid he’s had a stroke so, in other words, he’s got the perfect resume for a Democrat.

Unsettling video shows large al Qaeda meeting in Yemen. They’re undoubtedly there in response to Kerry’s calls for action on climate change.

Sen. Reid calls supporters of Nevada rancher Bundy ‘domestic terrorists.’ Is it us? Or, is Dirty Harry starting to sound more like Dirty Putin? UPDATE. After hearing this he sounds more like Dirty Sissy.

Slate: What if Bundy Ranch Were Owned by a Bunch of Black People? That depends. If one of the people in question is notorious tax-evader Al Sharpton the the scenario likely ends with the President attending another one of his parties (while the victims of the Tawana Brawley hoax remain unpaid and the victims of the Freddy’s Fashion Mart massacre remain dead). Of course that is not a perfect comparison. Sharpton doesn’t produce any cattle, just the stuff that comes out of them.

Poland uneasy about Russian invasion after events in Ukraine. “Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel emphasized that the United States would defend Poland in the event of a Russian assault.” Q: How many Obama Admin officials does it take to change a light bulb? A: Well, they don’t actually change any, they just draw red lines and warn of dire consequences if any go out.

While Putin invades Ukraine, Obama and Biden have fun with selfies.


1. a person who amuses others by tricks, jokes, odd gestures and postures.
2. a person given to coarse or undignified joking.

Texas Republicans take careful aim and then shoot themselves in foot. Republican political advisors at Blakemore and Associates Consulting Firm just registered a new PAC they named “Boats ‘N Hoes PAC.” And just like that Wendy Davis finally has an issue with legs.

86M full-time private-sector workers sustain 148M benefit takers. The corollary, as tweeted today: “Taxes are the price we pay for 7 of the 10 richest counties being within commuting distance of DC.” Buying votes with OPM.

Muslim cabdrivers doing what Christian bakers not allowed to do. In Cleveland, Muslim cabdrivers are refusing airport duty because the cabs have Gay Games placards on the roof (see above). In other locales, Muslim cabdrivers have refused to carry unaccompanied women, people carrying alcohol, and blind people with guide dogs. Meanwhile, Christian bakers & photographers are being prosecuted and run out of business for not participating in gay weddings.
