800-member clerical union costing LA ports $1 billion a day. The 800 clerical workers went on strike and thousands of longshoremen and truckers refuse to cross the picket line. It’s Union Economics 101: squeaky wheel gets the grease.

British doctors euthanizing babies and children in the most painful inhumane manner possible. “I witnessed a 14 year-old boy with cancer die with his tongue stuck to the roof of his mouth when doctors refused to give him liquids by tube. His death was agonising for him,” said a hospice nurse. The UK’s National Health Service is very handy for Americans. It provides an advance look at the depravity and evil of socialized medicine so we don’t have to worry about surprises.

OPEN CLIMATE LETTER TO UN SECRETARY-GENERAL: Current scientific knowledge does not substantiate Ban Ki-Moon assertions on weather and climate, say 125-plus scientists. As evidenced by granting Palestine recognition and putting Iran on the Commission on Women’s Rights, since when does the UN deal in reality?

Democrat rep: amend Constitution to allow control of speech. “We need a constitutional amendment that would allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations,” Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) was quoted as saying by CNS News. Yes, this is the same Hank Johnson who was worried that Guam might capsize. Funny how people who are always babbling about corporations destroying our lives never notice it was governments that killed millions of their own people in the last century or so.

Frustrated Staten Islanders sound off at town hall meeting. We can hear GW Bush saying “Miss me yet?” If these were blacks in New Orleans the MSM would be screaming bloody murder. Especially if President Bush was going on a Hawaii vacation while this kind of crap goes on.

Jay Leno: “Very dangerous to White House if journalists suddenly start asking real questions.” Jay, it would also be very dangerous if pigs acquired wings, jet engines and smart bombs and began attacking cities at random. Neither are likely to happen but if forced to pick, our money’s on the pigs. (Video at link.)

Detroit’s Bing: city workers “entitled,” only president’s job harder. “We are in an environment… of entitlement… a lot of people who are city workers, who for years and years… think they are entitled to a job and all that comes with it.” Hmmm, maybe a certain political party shouldn’t have encouraged this attitude with decades of “Vote for me and get free stuff!” campaigns, eh Mr. Mayor? Obama’s job is harder? We’ll let you know when and if he actually starts doing it.

Oops! Sorry Kids… Obama Forgot to Tell College Students He Cut Pell Grants Before Election. When asked about this President Urkel said “Did I do that?”

The real tragedy of ObamaCare has yet to be felt by the poor. “Medicaid is cumbersome, complex, and wasteful – already the worst health care program in the country. But rather than making changes to improve or modernize this program designed to finance care for the poor, the Obama administration is trying to convince states to add at least 16 million more people to Medicaid, including families making more than $30,000 a year.” But Barry cares and he’s taking a vacation in Hawaii to prove it. What do you mean that’s a non-sequitur?

Fast food workers call for $15 an hour: We here at IHTM have no interest in judging anyone for the life choices they’ve made . . . that is until they expect us to pay for them. Which is why we must say that while we sympathize with those trying to make it on a burger flipper’s salary, we see no reason why we should subsidize them beyond their skill’s worth by bearing yet another cost of living increase.

Belgian man shocked to learn wife of 19 years is [was] a man. “‘I thought she was an attractive woman, all woman… [and] even during sex, I never noticed anything,’ said the 64 year-old man. The deception unraveled after the transsexual began frequenting nightclubs and getting emails from other men.” The truth will set you free, right Barry?

WR has ‘heard’ of Viagra use to gain edge on field. Well, it could explain all the butt-patting on the field. We urge all NFL players to be extra careful and don’t drop the soap in the shower after the game until the investigation is complete.

Obama to jet off to Hawaii for SEVENTEEN DAY Christmas vacation. “Last year the trip cost [the US taxpayer] more than $1 million,according to the Hawaii Reporter.” BTW, he left word to all you suckers to curse the rich ’cause they have more than you. Hey, “vacation” isn’t one of those raaaaacist code words like “golf” and “Chicago”, is it? Oh, well.

UN recognizes Palestine as non-member observer state. Crooks recognizing fellow crooks. We wonder if the UN has a secret greeting like in the movie the Sting, where fellow grifters touch their noses?

Obama naivete destabilizing the Middle East. “…the Obama Administration publicly declares it is opposed to giving Syrian rebels manpads [shoulder-fired missiles], it is another story on the covert side of the house. … Some of the intelligence operatives at the so-called ‘Annex’ in Benghazi were collecting and shipping these weapon systems to Turkey. That’s one of the dirty secrets the Obama Administration is keen on hiding.” What could go wrong? Oh, yeah…

When work is punished: The tragedy of America’s welfare state. “”the single mom is better off earnings gross income of $29,000 with $57,327 in net income & benefits than to earn gross income of $69,000 with net income and benefits of $57,045.” “For every 1.65 employed persons in the private sector, 1 person receives welfare assistance… For every 1.25 employed persons in the private sector, 1 person receives welfare assistance or works for the government.” Enjoy the free stuff, Obamunists – ’cause when it’s gone, it’s gone.

Chicago’s 2nd Congressional District. In 1993 Mel Reynolds replaced Gus Savage, a racist anti-Semite who tried to rape a Peace Corps volunteer during a congressional trip to Zaire and was accused of a drive-by shooting that injured Reynolds during the election campaign. Reynolds only lasted two years before statutory rape and child pornography charges forced him to resign… then he was convicted of a bunch of financial crimes while he was in prison. Now he’s back, hoping to regain his seat after Jesse Jackson, Jr., resigned because of his own financial crimes. Democracy in action, Chicago style.

New analysis says Greenland ice not melting as fast as they thought. Just like their warnings about Himalayan ice and Antarctic ice were dramatically wrong, it turns out the Greenland ice sheet will last for 13,000 years at the current melt rate. By then Al Gore will have invented a giant Earth cooler to save us, so no worries, mate.

NY Times’ Kristoff: Utility customers require auxiliary generators because of tax cuts for the rich. “Half-a-century of tax cuts focused on the wealthiest Americans leave us with third-rate public services, leading the wealthy to develop inefficient private workarounds.” Ummm, most electric utilities are private companies and NOT financed by tax money so this argument is flat out wrong. Maybe tax cuts for the rich are also responsible for the declining intellectual level of newspaper pundits too, eh?
