    Q: On what do you base your confidence?
    A: “President Obama assured me of this fact.”

    Useful idiots.

    Won’t matter to the progs … doesn’t fit their narrative.

    The problem with this and so many other programs that are giving the purported helping hand is that they do nothing to stem the underlying causes of the problem. On top of that, they create the culture of dependency to which several other commenters have referred.

    My biggest issue with things like the food stamp programs is that they allow many of the recipients to live as if they were taking care of their own affairs. Someone being supported by the government should not be able to buy prime steaks while another person who is just above the support line is scrimping with ground beef (or even cheaper alternatives). Get rid of the user discretion and provide them with simple basic meals that provide the needed nutrition instead of allowing them to buy the crap they are allowed to currently buy. Support like this should be geared to transitioning someone over a temporary hurdle; not enabling a life style.

    Michelle Obama, where the hell are you on this issue? Instead of imposing your dietary philosophy on the universe, how about concentrating where it would really help?

    They accuse the Repubs of ignoring science (e.g., global warming, er… global cooling, er…. climate change, er…[insert new tagline here]), yet don’t want to talk about the science of viability in the womb.

    This is a classic example of the government attacking others for behavior it exhibits itself.

    Years ago, they banned the Joe Camel cartoon because they felt it trivialized / encouraged / made cool the habit of smoking. I don’t necessarily disagree with this.

    However, when they employ the use of cartoons to encourage or make cool the enlistment into Obamacare (a piece of crp legislation), cartoons are OK?

    I thought Islam prohibited idolatry or worship of symbols. Why are they making a big deal out of this then?

  • [10] January 25, 2015 at 12:41pm

    Or to miss a meal.

    Before simply creating a new comment, searched for the word “Payback”. Not surprised to see it already.

    It is kind of hard for the Dems to get out of the plodding, do-nothing, habit of the prior session. They need to get back into game-shape.

    OK, so how does he get his life back after they trashed him by publicly by raising the prospect of civil rights violations before thoroughly investigating?

    They were playing to the base then; what changed? Maybe a review of the FACTS?

    I used to count how many times he says “I” in his speeches.

    Since it is well-established what a narcissist he is, I’m instead looking tomorrow night for how many times he says “it’s the right thing” to justify his policies.

    If you have to tell everyone how good or right something is, then it probably isn’t.

    Auto bailout – “the right thing to do” (1/7/2015))
    Cuba policy – “the right thing to do” (12/2014)
    Immigration – “the right thing to do” (Sep 2014)
    Iraq Troop withdrawal 2011 – “the right thing to do” (August 2014)
    Healthcare – “the right thing to do” (June 22, 2012)
    Immigration and DREAM act – “the right thing to do” (June 2012)
    Tax credit for clean energy companies -”the right thing to do” (May 2012)
    Tuition tax credit – “the right thing to do” (January 2011 SotU)
    GM rescue – “the right thing to do” (May 18, 2010)
    Tax relief to small business [huh?] – “the right thing to do” (May 18, 2010)
    Small business loans “the right thing to do” (May 18, 2010)
    Extend unemployment benefits – “the right thing to do” (May 18, 2010)
    Invest in Youngstown’s infrastructure – “the right thing to do” (May 18, 2010)
    Repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell” – “the right thing to do”
    Payroll tax – “the right thing to do”
    Clean energy -”the right thing to do” (Freemont, CA 2010)

    Even Michelle gets in on it:
    Voting Democrat – “the right thing to do” (Michelle Obama to mostly black audience – Nov 2014)

    Raging agreement with you jman. I can’t remember any prior president who has acted so unpresidential during his term. My biggest fear is that once Unpresident Obama is done with his carnage in office he will be just like Carter and Clinton — unable to shut his mouth or fade away into the sunset.

    WTH? He hasn’t done enough damage to the economy? Now he has to go further?

    Jarrett: ‘“We are the only developed country in the world that doesn’t have paid leave,” and “If we want to be globally competitive, we have to figure this out.”
    So … because we aren’t doing what the other countries are doing, we have to change? And this will make us more globally competitive, how? Why is it that folks are streaming to the US (many illegally) if things suck so badly here?

    “Obama will also outline a plan to establish paid leave programs by providing $1 million in existing funding through the Department of Labor to help states and local governments implement policies.”
    If you can’t dazzle them with good policy, bribe them to implement it. It’s time to get rid of this money laundering by the feds.

    More Jarrett: “If employers want to be competitive, they will have to keep the best and brightest minds,” and “To keep the best and brightest minds, they will need family-friendly policies.”
    Missing quotation: “and employers are too damn stupid to know what they should be doing so we smarter-than-thou bureaucrats will tell them what to do.”

    Stevenson: “These leave policies will encourage more people to work,” and “The evidence tells us that if we want to experience economic growth we need to make sure more men and women can participate in the labor force”
    Actually, more jobs will encourage more people to work. How about concentrating on that?!?

    Nice oratorical jiujitsu — the Dems would be proud of you:

    “…But the bottom line is this: I think we should be celebrating today, and it’s discouraging to me that instead this has become such a divisive day. We had a great election in November. …”

    When you don’t have a defensible position, shift the discussion. This inability for our elected officials to accept any accountability for their past (even immediate past) decisions is what has us in our current state of affairs.

    According to Stewart, Gohmert is not the right person to lead the caucus right now. Obviously he is not including principle and integrity in his evaluation criteria.

    As I read the article, I mentally began crafting a response. Then I read yours and see you already wrote it for me. Right on!

  • [22] December 29, 2014 at 1:30pm

    Not too sure, but since they are military, I suspect they are not supporters of the narcissist-in-chief.

    Please boss, give me a disciplinary absence.

    This is but another example of the government establishing well-meaning legislation that creates unintended consequences. It is hard to argue with the premise of protecting workers from truly unfair labor practices, however, when it sweeps a whole bunch of other activities under the same umbrella it loses all sense of rationality. Add in a dose of bureaucrats whose livelihood depends on them justifying their existence by enforcing regulations in letter and not spirit, and you end up with an out of control government exactly like the one we currently have.

    As more of a theoretical question, what is the difference between my giving hours to a non-profit in volunteer status and doing the same with a for-profit? Isn’t it my decision to give my time to whomever a choice that I should be able to make? (I know .. the government isn’t confident of my ability to do so and it must protect me).

    Maybe if Washington hadn’t ****** spent the SS taxes collected they would not have to rely on “the way Social Security works is the current work force pays for the retiring work force.”

    They call it a Ponzi scheme in the private sector and jail those who perpetuate this kind of fraud.

    And what will happen when the government decides that all of these illegal immigrants can start drawing their own SS benefits because they paid into the system?

    To paraphrase our AG, I don’t “condone” her comments.
