I hesitated before writing about this, but I decided I would post it and not try to sugar coat it at all. The folks at the Thanks Obamacare campaign have put together a website to provide information on Obamacare. It’s a Colorado website created by the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative and Progress Now Colorado Education. The name of the website is DoYouGotInsurance.com. You read that right; it says ‘do you got;’ not ‘do you have.’ But were they to leave it at that their website probably wouldn’t be getting so much attention. In addition to the atrocious grammar they’ve also created an ad campaign showing different people with different reasons to have health insurance. The ad below is one of them. The creators of this ad; the promoters of Obamacare; are not even being subtle about telling women to get their insurance, get their birth control and go be sluts. Apparently, Sandra Fluke is the left’s ideal woman. Be a [...] → Keep reading
Steven Hayward, political science professor at the University of Colorado, has written a piece for Forbes in which he predicts that Obamacare will be repealed well in advance of the 2014 elections. Hayward says the talk about the website failure is a distraction from the real issue of people and businesses losing their health plans or having to pay a lot more for them. Who he is predicting to lead the charge on repeal is surprising.
Senate Democrats endangered for re-election will lead the charge for repeal perhaps as soon as January, after they get an earful over the Christmas break. They’ll call it “reform,” and clothe it in calls for delaying the individual mandate and allowing people and businesses to keep their existing health insurance policies. But it is probably too late to go back in many cases. With the political damage guaranteed to continue, the momentum toward repeal will be unstoppable. Democrats will not want to face [...] → Keep reading
While watching the poll results come in on the Virginia Governor’s race last night I was not surprised to see Terry McAuliffe take the lead and emerge as the winner. There are several reasons why I believe he was able to defeat Ken Cuccinelli and I have seen most of them mentioned or discussed on other sites. But there is one factor I have wondered about and it is not something relating solely to yesterday’s election, or to any one election of the last few years. That being that we, as a nation, might no longer be under the protection of God. I’m sure to some that may seem a ridiculous concept, but to others it might not. As a student of the Bible I know that even Israel, God’s chosen people, were in and out of favor with God throughout parts of the Old Testament. More than once he turned them over to their enemies for chastisement when they [...] → Keep reading
“First of all, if you’ve got health insurance, you like your doctors, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Nobody is talking about taking that away from you.”
That was Barack Obama at a campaign rally on July 16, 2009, repeating the same thing he’d said many other times at many other events.
But, in spite of the fact that hundreds of thousands of people all over the country are now receiving letters telling them their plans are being cancelled, the Democrats are maintaining the position that the lie told countless times is still the truth. How stupid do they think we are?
Joseph Goebbels, oops, I mean Jay Carney has tried to spin it by saying that it was the insurance companies who were cancelling the plans, not the government. How stupid do they think we are?
Henry J. Aaron, an economist and health care ‘expert’ at the Brookings Institution, is [...] → Keep reading
The State of Hawaii is about to put their churches in an untenable position. The State Senate’s Judiciary and Labor Committee has just approved a bill to be voted on by the full Senate that would make same-sex marriage legal in Hawaii. With only one Republican in the Senate, the bill is expected to be easily passed and sent to the House for consideration. Governor Neil Abercrombie, a Democrat who is up for reelection next year, is the driving force behind this and even called a special session to specifically deal with gay marriage. He said that a special session allows legislators to “focus squarely on this important issue, without having to divert attention to the hundreds of other bills introduced during a regular session.” The Governor claims to have one more vote than is needed for the bill to be passed in the House. He hopes to have same-sex weddings in the state beginning next month.

Liberals hate America. There’s no denying it. When people do their best to completely destroy something it is not because they love it; it’s because of hatred. And liberals are doing everything within their power (and seizing new powers) to destroy America. Yes, of course they will angrily disagree and claim they only want to make America more ‘fair’ or more ‘global.’ Nonsense. The America they want is not the America the Founders envisioned and certainly not the America created by the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
I have asked some of my liberal friends on more than one occasion to name the part of the Constitution that gives the government the authority to take money from me and give it to other people. None have ever been able to answer. While taxation is a necessary thing, to a certain degree (and I would argue the income tax is not needed), seizing part of someone’s salary and handing it [...] → Keep reading
The Cable is reporting that Senator McCain has hired Elizabeth O’Bagy, the former analyst at the Institute for the Study of War who was forced to resign after it was learned she lied about her credentials. Being discovered as a liar did not stop McCain and others in the Senate from using her ‘analysis’ to support their desire for military intervention in Syria. Bunkerville has the details on O’Bagy’s ouster at the Institute and also The Syrian Emergency Task Force.
Sen. John McCain has hired Elizabeth O’Bagy, the Syria analyst in Washington who was fired for padding her credentials, The Cable has learned. She begins work Monday as a legislative assistant in McCain’s office.
O’Bagy was a young but well-respected adviser at the Institute for the Study of War and had emerged quickly as an important voice among those arguing in favor of intervention in Syria. McCain and others had cited her work publicly [...] → Keep reading
The abortion queen says she’s in. Texas State Senator Wendy Davis has begun telling prominent Democrats in the state that she will be running for Governor next year. She will likely be up against Republican Greg Abbott, currently the Texas attorney general. Until a few months ago I had never heard of Davis. But, as Tom Dart wrote for The Guardian, “The state senator from Fort Worth became an overnight celebrity in June, as a result of her 11-hour filibuster against restrictive new abortion legislation.” Being reelected in 2012, her term as Senator would ordinarily not be up until 2016, but earlier this year the Texas senators drew for terms in a post-redistricting, once a decade process and Davis drew a two year term. If she loses the gubernatorial election next year she will not have a Senate term to complete.
Her voting record as Senator is largely unknown outside of Texas, except of course for the abortion bill. Mark [...] → Keep reading
