Stories I’d like to post about today…
Maybe I should just start a new feature. We lost the ability to publish that widget allowing you to “read what we’re reading” but here is a list of stories I’d like to write about today, but there is no time.
How the heck is this not the top news of the last couple of days?
Searching for a pressure cooker?
Embassies in Middle East closing on Sunday. When you hear or read about this, are you suspicious? Maybe an Obama administration fake-out?
And finally from the not-unexpected-at-all file. The Obama administration changes Obamacare regulations to – in effect – give a waiver to members of Congress and their staff.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) put the provision into the bill that required lawmakers and their aides to play by the same rules as their constituents and purchase their health care from the exchanges. The federal government subsidized nearly 75% of these insurance premium payments before Obamacare. But under the new law, lawmakers and staffers would have had to pay an additional $5,000 for individual plans and around $11,000 more for family plans on the exchanges that are set to start on Oct. 1.
No way can those in Congress be allowed to have to deal with Obamacare like the peasants they rule.
One more. Dozens of CIA operatives IN Benghazi during attack.
We need to administer an enema to the impacted colon that is congress and throw out our treason-president Barack Hussein Obamination.
Not likely. Comment not helpful.
Aside from the colorful description, how is it less helpful than yours??
Stinkfoot is right: the only way to get this incompetent president and his congressional enablers out of office is to make the low information voters realize what is going on in Washington, and the only way to do that is to kvetch loudly and do tbe job formerly held by the press (hear anything about Benghazi on the “news” lately, despite recent revelations?? The IRS?? Yeah, me neither.).
Right as rain Sammy… not helpful unless we also go after those who’ve transformed mainstream media into a prefrontal laundromat conveyor of misinformation, distraction, and slant which among so many other things would fan far greater outrage at A-Rod’s use of maligned substances in pursuit of his line of work than the treasonous Constitution trampling by Obama, Reid, Pelosi. et al- enabled by calculated capitulations by RINOs like Boehner.
Will you give examples of “helpful comments?”
Thanks for reminding why I stopped commenting.
Are you seriously OK with the liberal media and their sins of omission and collusion
No point in empowering another to stifle your contributions here.? I’m keenly aware of two very key things when I reply here:
1- I’m not always going to meet with agreement
2-It is inevitable that I’ll be wrong at some point.
Respectful disagreement not saturated with judgement will be appreciatively read and often replied to- all others tolerated because I’m not always perfect in my own tone.? I try to keep in mind that however deep the difference, the future of my own rights and freedoms is inextricably tied to that of those with whom I might differ so I try not to get too deep into divisiveness as that plays into the hands of the demagogues as much as withholding my participation.
I found a book, “Three Felonies a Day”, which argues that our ever growing and ambiguous system of laws leaves us all in legal jeopardy- especially if you’re selected for prosecution. ?The meta data will be a great boon to bureaucrats who want to shut you up or lock you up! I wish I could have that kind of access on our pols’ medical records and Internet activities, but they’re sealed! ?Funny how the transparency Obama promised is so one-way!
