Mayhem is Coming!

By Patty On March 7th, 2011 at 8:06 pm

March 2011: The ObamaCare law is now yielding mayhem nationwide.

1. Human Health and Human Services Director Kathleen Sebelius has just admitted to lying about cost savings last year, before ObamaCare was signed into law – a $500 billion lie.

2.  Kathleen Sebelius has handed out almost 1000 (a thousand!!) waivers from the law, mostly to unions.

3. ObamaCare law was recently declared  void in Federal Court:  “He  (Judge Vinson) plainly stated that the law is unconstitutional, but defenders of ObamaCare seemed not to grasp that the judge meant the government was obliged to follow that edict”.

4. And, 28 (twenty-eight!) states are now challenging ObamaCare in court.

Oh! Can’t forget — the cost of  my health insurance premium more than doubled last month! ObamaCare = mayhem! ….expensive mayhem.

Largest Monthly Deficit in HISTORY. February Monthly Deficit, 223 Billion Dollars in one month. Now mind you The Federal Deficit for the  YEAR in 2007 was 161 Billion yet the Democrats are saying we are going to starve the old, kill the education of children, etc etc. if we cut a measly 61 Billion from the budget this year. That number is just a drop in the Bucket.

The Democrats on the other hand are willing to cut a whopping one third of ONE PERCENT THAT’S IT, Watch this:

Will Denial Soon Be Just Another River?

Almost 10 years after 9/11 and a plethora of radical Islamist terror attacks later, the U.S. House of Representatives plans to hold a hearing on the radicalization of American Muslims:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Muslims in the America aren’t cooperating enough with law enforcement to counter the radicalization of young followers by al-Qaeda-linked groups, said a House leader on terrorism issues, renewing debate about religion’s role in motivating extremists and what the United States can do without alienating the Islamic world.

Rep. Peter T. King, New York Republican, who is chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, asserted that al Qaeda terrorists are targeting Muslim youth in this country, previewing his hearing Thursday on the extent of the problem and the Muslim community’s response.

“The overwhelming majority of Muslims are outstanding Americans, but at this stage in our history there’s an effort … to radicalize elements within the Muslim community,” he said in an interview broadcast Sunday.

“It’s there, and that’s where the threat is coming from at this time,” Mr. King said.”

Commie Lard Ass

By Patrick Van Roy On March 6th, 2011 at 2:45 pm

You have to watch this video and listen to how stupid this fat commie bastard is.  First he say’s the country is not broke, and Wisconsin is not broke. Which in one sense is true, but just like the Federal Government the State Government’s books are out of balance. Due to communist policies that have been implemented in our government bodies since the turn of the 20th century.

You can not spend more than you have, and you can’t pay people what they have not earned. If you listen to Moore in this clip he provides us with a perfect case study of why communism has never and will never work, and for those that want to try and split hairs don’t bother socialism is communism.

He starts with the base premise that there is only a finite amount of cash. Just as you’ll hear other commies talk about getting their piece of the pie, and others having an unfair portion of the pie. This belief is one of the keystones of the commie pinko mentality.  There is only one pie and the greedy business, and land owners control to much of the pie. Well the wealth of any nation or company is NOT a finite pie. All nations and all businesses are bakeries. The amount of pie to spread around the table is controlled by the amount of pie you produce.

The second keystone that Moore hits on is that the people “allow” the pie to be controlled by a few people. The people have no authority to allow or disallow anything. The only thing anyone is “allowed” to control is what they have earned or produced themselves. YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO OTHER PEOPLES STUFF, no one owes you anything.

Building on this flawed belief Moore states that we need to view these jobs as something we own, and corporations can’t steal their jobs and take them some place else. Once again the I’m entitled mentality.  The company owes you nothing, if they give you a job and you do that job, and they pay you for it, that is all that you are owed.

If you create a situation that makes the cost of employing you more than your value of input to the finished product than the company owes itself, its shareholders or in the case of a government its tax payers a fiduciary responsibility to get rid of you and either replace you with someone that will work for the proper amount, or cut the excess out of what you are being compensated.

The best part of all this, is this blowhard represents another key problem with communism. There are always those that will play on and manipulate the stupid. Moore is the perfect example. He split the profits of Fahrenheit 911 with the two producers of the movie. Moore’s share was 20 million, never mind that he still felt that he was ripped off and filled suit to get another 2 1/2  Mil. out of the producers. What is important is that he kept the 20 million. If he followed what he preached that 20 million would have been equally divided amongst him, the grips, the sound workers, the set people, the actors, etc. etc, but of course it wasn’t. Sheeple do as I say not as I do.  These are always the types you find at the head of any commie movement.

Tick box √……..Fetch Credit Card…√

By Mike Cunningham On March 6th, 2011 at 12:35 pm

A couple of weeks ago, I was considering whether to upgrade my digital camera, so I did what nearly everyone does, in these days of T’Internet; I went online, and googled and searched until I found what I reckoned would most suit my needs, and of course within my budget.

But over the next days, I discovered many images on my screen which are, to me, profoundly disturbing. We all have seen the many adverts which blink and wink back at you from your screens; mainly I ignore them, knowing that their presence is just an annoying inevitability. But, and I believe it is a big ‘BUT’, I really dislike adverts targeted at me because of prior searches. Suddenly I saw advert after advert telling me of one product only, and that was of course digital cameras!

I pride myself on a fairly active mind, and thus am hopefully immune to the blandishments from t.v., radio and internet advertising. I can honestly state that I have as least enough resistance to the ‘siren calls’ as the next man, with the advantage that I constantly ask myself two questions when considering purchase.

First I ask if I, or rather we, need it? Secondly I ask is it worth it? But through this process of self-discussion is a strong thread of common sense. How is the product made? Where is it made? Are there better equivalents available? Is price a factor? Many things fit into this stream of thought, during a buying process which can take seconds, sometimes days or weeks. But hopefully none of the processes involve a suggestion made by a carefully-crafted and placed advert which itself was generated by a previous online search!

As the ever-excellent Big Brother Watch site states, the latest idea is to slide ‘cookies’ in where we don’t expect them, and then our ‘surfing’ does the rest. Visit the Adobe site, click on the panels as suggested, and keep the bastards away from your minds and your wallets.

Fat Cats Unite!

“I Like the Cut of Her Jib”

By Patty On March 5th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

British historian Paul Johnson likes the cut of Sarah Palin’s jib. Me, too. British historian Paul Johnson thinks Sarah Palin has courage. Me, too. Brian M. Carney writes in the weekend edition of The Wall Street Journal:

“Pessimists, he (Paul Johnson) points out, have been predicting America’s decline “since the 18th century.” But whenever things are looking bad, America “suddenly produces these wonderful things—like the tea party movement. That’s cheered me up no end. Because it’s done more for women in politics than anything else—all the feminists? Nuts! It’s brought a lot of very clever and quite young women into mainstream politics and got them elected. A very good little movement, that. I like it.” Then he deepens his voice for effect and adds: “And I like that lady—Sarah Palin. She’s great. I like the cut of her jib.”

The former governor of Alaska, he says, “is in the good tradition of America, which this awful political correctness business goes against.” Plus: “She’s got courage. That’s very important in politics. You can have all the right ideas and the ability to express them. But if you haven’t got guts, if you haven’t got courage the way Margaret Thatcher had courage—and [Ronald] Reagan, come to think of it. Your last president had courage too—if you haven’t got courage, all the other virtues are no good at all. It’s the central virtue.”

Don’t get me wrong…I like Chris Christie as well. But, Sarah… Sarah has courage and goes where lesser men dare not tread. I like that.

ON THE LOCAL NHS

By David Vance On March 5th, 2011 at 10:51 am

The utter dysfunctionality of the Stormont government is laid bare in these simple statisitics;

The total number of people waiting for a first outpatient appointment at the end of December 2010 was 124,589. This represents an increase of 42,019 (+50.9%) on the number waiting at the same time last year (82,570).

Got that, a 50% INCREASE year on year? Is that your idea of good effective government in action?

Now, how about those who have to wait 9 weeks or longer?

Hang on. Let’s review what the Health Ministry says the number should be, shall we?

The 2010/11 Ministerial target relating to outpatient waiting times states that by 31 March 2011, no patient should wait longer than nine weeks for a first outpatient appointment.

So, how’s it going? Remenber, ZERO is the declared target.

At the end of December 2010, there were 54,472 (43.7%) patients waiting more than nine weeks for a first outpatient appointment, of which 37,655 were waiting more than 13 weeks. The number of patients waiting longer than nine weeks represented an increase of 2,146 on the figure for the previous quarter (52,326), and was up 38,757 on the corresponding quarter in 2009 (15,715).

Got that?

To those who come here and whinge about TUV demands for a better form of Government, can you EXPLAIN the above figures given that the level of spend in the local NHS is at all an time high?

Time for YOU to all face the facts that it isn’t working and that change must come – or else expect even more thousands to join the waiting lists, the dole queues – the factual output of the Executive.

THERE’S LOVELY….

By David Vance On March 4th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

I see that if one believes the BBC ” Wales has said a resounding Yes in the referendum on direct law-making powers for the assembly.”

When the last result was declared, all 22 counties except one – Monmouthshire – backed change. Turnout is provisionally put at 35%. The final result saw 517,132 vote Yes, and 297,380 say No – a 63.5% to 36.5% winning margin

So 515, 132 say Yes.

And the Welsh population? 3 Million.

Resounding???????
