Legend. “…the president has been caught spinning fictions so often that it is now reasonable to ask, what if it’s all fiction?” Obama just doesn’t tell big lies, he may actually be a big lie.
NOTICE: Google Chrome is falsely saying IHTM has Malware. If you use Google Chrome, you will see a big red page warning that says to proceed with caution when entering our site; they say there is malware on it. This is not true, as Google’s own Webmaster Tools say there is no security issue. Unfortunately, a website owner can only tell Google to review the site and remove the warning if Google’s webmaster tools says there is a warning. Since their Webmaster Tools says there is no malware, I cannot tell them to review the site to remove the warning. Chrome and Google’s own tools apparently don’t talk to each other. So, we’re stuck with the warning until we find some way to contact Google, which is nearly impossible as they do not have support. You can see the site is clean for yourself here.
California Air Resources Board: Let’s help poor buy energy-efficient cars as a way to clean the air. “In one scenario posed by the agency, a ‘voucher’ might even pay the full price for a Nissan Leaf, an electric car with an MSRP above $21,000…” Why stop there? Maybe CARB should buy everyone a bullet train in order to
go bankrupt clean the air eleventy times faster!
The coming global wealth tax. “In October the IMF floated a bold idea that didn’t get the attention it deserved: lowering sovereign debt levels through a one-off tax on private wealth.” Yeah, we’re out of OPM so the only way to fix it is with more OPM.
Young invincibles spurn O-Care. “…insurance coverage of any kind remains a tough sell for people in their twenties, many of whom are eligible to stay on their parents’ plans through age 26. …many young people might not see enrollment as being in their financial interest.” Gee, who coulda seen that one coming? Besides anybody not in the Obama Administration, that is?
One meeting in more than three and a half years. That’s how involved the president was in the implementation of Obamacare. He met with the cabinet secretary in charge of his signature legislation one time. Meanwhile, he was playing thousands of holes of golf.
ACLU suing United States Conference of Catholic Bishops… because Catholic hospitals don’t allow abortions. According to ACLU Newspeak, abortion equals liberty, by golly, and those doggone proles in the Catholic Church must stop committing thoughtcrimes or face the three stages of reintegration.
U.N., Mexico: Truck with radioactive load stolen. Don’t worry, DHS has you covered, no one will light off a dirty bomb.
All of the U.S. ports of entry have radiation detectors in place, and trucks crossing the border are routinely screened for radiation.
Just ignore the sieve known as the U.S. — Mexico border.
Obama seriously considered minting a trillion-dollar coin to bypass debt ceiling. We all thought this was a joke dreamed up by whacky fringe leftists, but Obama had the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel draw up a detailed legal justification for making this thing out of platinum. The coin would be deposited at the Federal Reserve and used (somehow, mysteriously) to make government expenditures.
Americans Want Congress Members To Pee In Cups To Prove They’re Not On Drugs. We suggest they add the White House and SCOTUS while they’re at it.
Surprise, surprise: Obama’s illegal uncle gets to stay in the U.S. Boy oh boy, who saw that coming? A federal immigration judge ruled Tuesday that Onyango Obama can remain in the United States, get a green card, and in five years apply for US citizenship… this after forty-some years of being an illegal alien, lying to immigration officials, and getting arrested for drunk driving.
Poll: Young People Abandoning Obama over Obamacare. You can fool all the low information voters some of the time, and some of the low information voters all the time, but you cannot fool all the low information voters all the time. It appears some are coming out of their stupor when they find out they’re getting bent forward.
IL Common Core School Assignment Requires Parents to Self-Identify as Conservative or Liberal. We would have written “None of your damn business” on it and asked shouldn’t the title be be “Are You a Communist?”
Low-Information Leadership. “The president’s problem right now is that people think he’s smart. They think he’s in command, aware of pitfalls and complexities. That’s his reputation: He’s risen far on his brains. They think he is sophisticated.” Seriously, Peg, I think most of us dopes were long ago disabused of that particular canard. It’s only now that the political class is getting it, and it took months worth of hits with the 2×4 we call “ObamaCare” to make the point.
Who was standing behind Obama today? White House won’t say. “A pool report called the group ’19 individuals whom the White House said benefited from health care reform.’ Beyond that, their connection to Obamacare remains unknown.” Perhaps contractors and cronies – our guess would be they’re members of the Potemkin family, creator of fine
facades villages everywhere.
Obama: “We’re not going back.” “President Obama declared Tuesday that ObamaCare ‘is working’ and that ‘we’re not going back.’” Goodness no, why should we return to a system most people were satisfied with when we can have one that brings misery and chaos in order to pamper someone’s overdeveloped ego?
Detroit bankruptcy judge rules public pensions haircuts OK. “…decision is a critical milestone. …pensions, like any contract, can be cut, adding that a provision in the Michigan Constitution protecting public pensions isn’t a bulletproof shield in a bankruptcy.” So much the canard that Detroit can’t declare bankruptcy because it would be “failing to honor President 404.”
Potemkincare. “The Obama administration has not created a functioning Web site. Rather, it has erected a Potemkin village online — a façade that temporarily conceals the lack of architecture behind it.” What did you expect? Obama himself is just a facade that temporarily concealed the lack of character behind it.
Archie Comics CEO sued for gender discrimination. Nancy Silberkleit is accused of calling male employees “Penis” instead of using their names. Her official response in a court filing is that white males are not a protected class so she can call them whatever she wants… otherwise known as the “Eric Holder Theory of Civil Rights.”
Losing My Religion. Article at a financial website explaining why a former believer has come to see the academically-endorsed Efficient Markets Theory as bunk. There are lessons here about why most published studies should not be accepted at face value. “The data can be tortured to confess to anything. You need to apply liberal doses of common sense—more when the claims are outlandish.”
New brain study suggests men and women are wired differently. Yet another “scientific” study from the university that brought us Michael Mann and his Hockey Stick. File this one in the No Shit Sherlock Department.
