Gallup: Americans turn on
government-guaranteed health care

Daily Caller, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/30/2012 8:31:29 AM

A new Gallup poll shows that 54 percent of Americans think it is not the federal government’s responsibility to ensure all citizens have health care coverage. This is the first time Gallup trends have shown a majority of Americans holding this opinion since 2000, according to Gallup’s Jeffrey Jones. From 2000 until around the time President Barack Obama was elected, polls showed an easy majority of Americans supported government-ensured health care. In most years during that time frame, more than 60 percent of Americans thought the government should make sure everyone had health care.

I agree with above posters. Polls at this point are meaningless. The only poll that counted was held on the 6th of this month and these people voted otherwise.

I really don´t want to hear about how they feel now. American subjects knew that the only way to stop obamacare and slow down the soviet-like takeover by government was to not re-elect obama - but they did anyway. Now I hope the worst of the obamacare prognostications turn out to be true. My sympathy is officially turned off.

0bamacare, if the Stupid Party can get its act together, will systematically destroy the ´Rats as an organized nation wide entity starting 2014 and continuing in 2016. This is a blessing in disguise. Though as Churchill would have put it, very effectively disguised as of now.

And John Roberts thought the American voter would get rid of ObamaCare. He and the American voter both missed their opportunity and now it´s here to stay.

Its pretty hard to overturn it now. 130% of Obama voters got what they asked for. Apparently purple dye and the concept of one vote per voter is too racist for America.

There is no satisfaction to be derived in this poll what so ever. The fact is a majority of Americans voted in support of government controlled healthcare last month. It doesn´t matter a wit that they were too dumb to know it.

I have seen the enemy, and they are US.
We elected officials who voted for the
new Health Care law. I have already seen
my new rate and my 2013 brochure. It isn´t
pretty to see what is now in place, and what will be on the near Horizon. In a year, more
and more uninformed people will begin to see
just how they are impacted by Obamacare, and they will not like how it feels. Maybe they cannot read the legalese in their plans brochure, if they have a plan, but they will feel the result in real time. It will no longer just be something people in Washington are discussing, it will be a real event in their lives, and one that most will find revolting.

Sorry, Rev, but Christianity isn´t
just about being nice to people
Telegraph U.K., by Tim Stanley    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/16/2014 7:48:54 AM     Post Reply
Here’s a thought for the day: Most people are “nice”, but Christians should be nice with a purpose. I am not a fan of the sitcom Rev, which depicts a vicar trying to be kind to his parishioners – with hilarious consequences. His congregation is small, full of delinquents, and the eponymous clergymen is often driven to drink by their unholy antics. Justin Welby disagrees with the show’s depiction of Anglican life because he notes that many churches are growing. The Rev’s, by contrast, conforms to a self-lacerating vision of Christianity as nice but niche. But self-laceration is the stock-in-trade of the

Louisiana GOP: Mary Landrieu ad fakery
sign of deeper problem with campaign
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/16/2014 7:35:16 AM     Post Reply
Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, in a neck-and-neck race for re-election, is taking a lot of criticism over a new ad -- her first this season -- depicting herself taking on "Washington" to protect the interests of Louisiana´s oil and gas industry. What Landrieu did to invite the ridicule was to re-create for her ad producers her own performance in a Senate hearing -- complete with set, supporting cast, fake nameplate, and even phony news chyrons -- to show her standing up for her state. The unspoken message of the ad -- something Landrieu could never say directly -- is that

Hillary Clinton’s Legacy Issue

When recently asked what she was most proud of from her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton replied that the office was like a “relay race.” “When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton,” she said. Mrs. Clinton was unable to cite any specific achievement, though she did make the rather dubious claim that “I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense.” Even some of her most ardent admirers couldn’t figure out a good answer to the question about her greatest achievement, during a discussion on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” As Ed

Bloomberg to spend $50M on new gun

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will spend $50 million this year to build a nationwide grassroots network on gun control in a direct challenge to the National Rifle Association, The New York Times reported. The new lobbying group, called Everytown for Gun Safety, will encompass other gun control groups funded by Bloomberg, Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, the report said. Bloomberg told the Times the strategy will focus on expanding the background check system for gun buyers at the state and national levels. He made nearly $14 million in federal campaign contributions for

Obama’s Whistling Lap Dog
National Review Online, by Jonah Goldberg    Original Article

Last week, the president’s lap dog blew his dog whistle. In case you didn’t know, in politics a “dog whistle” is coded language that has a superficial meaning for everybody, but also a special resonance for certain constituencies. Using dog whistles lets politicians deny they meant to say anything nasty, bigoted, or controversial. Speaking to the National Action Network the day after a testy but racially irrelevant exchange with Republican members of a House panel, Attorney General Eric Holder said, “The last five years have been defined . . . by lasting reforms even in the face of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly,

Howard Dean: Dems would win back House

Former Vermont governor Howard Dean (D) says Democrats would be in strong position to win back the U.S. House majority this year if not for the troubled rollout of the federal health-care Web site last fall. "I think we would have won the House had the Web site not collapsed," Dean, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, said in a brief interview with Post Politics Tuesday evening. He called the battle for the House a "struggle" for Democrats but predicted the party would retain control of the Senate. The flawed rollout of the health-care Web site "was a problem because we had

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- A man is facing charges after deputies say he was flying a video camera-equipped drone that hindered the landing of a medical helicopter at an accident scene. Kele Stanley, of Springfield, said he´s been unfairly charged and would have landed it immediately if he knew the medical helicopter was en route. "I´m not an idiot," he said. The hobbyist was flying the $4,000 drone over a crash scene on Saturday morning to shoot photos and video. Authorities said both fire officials and a Clark County sheriff´s deputy told Stanley to stop flying his remote-controlled

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
