Whoever coined the term ´to the victor goes the spoils´ did not have President Barack Obama´s official inauguration party in mind. They knocked on doors for him and helped him win re-election, but when Obama supporters put on their tuxedos and ball gowns to celebrate the start of his second term in office, they feasted on pretzels, peanuts and Cheez-its. ´This is the food? I´m not too thrilled about it. It´s for the birds,´ said Ben Shelly, who helped mobilize support for Obama on the Navajo reservation in Arizona. Dancing was also difficult: it was much too crowded in
Comments: I know a laugh is not an intelligent comment. How about a guffaw, followed by a snort?
I am waiting for the day (and may have a longggggg wait) when the frenzied Obama supporters start to recognize that though THEIR lives have changed and they will be taxed into the ground, regulated to a T and Obamacared into a facsimile of Motor Vehicle when they need a Dr, Obama is wearing Brioni suits, using Air Force I as his personal taxi (at $100,000 and hour, why NOT go back to Hawaii for a day or so) and he and his are feasting on Kobi beef and taking multiple, multiple vacations.......a kingly example of do as I say, not as I do. Will they ever grasp, also, that what he says with such energy is in direct opposition as to what he does: e.g. the economy is recovering fast and the world is at peace. They really are fools.

Ummm, yeah. Not feeling bad for the guy from the Navajo Reservation. My parents´ live in the Southern end (the tax paying part) of Apache County Arizona. Apache County is ruled by all Navajos, who drive expensive taxpayer funded SUV´s. At the 4th of July parade this year, the Sheriff´s office showcased an Assault vehicle that had to cost in the millions.(Nothing scary about that...) The Navajo Nation tuurns out HUGE in every election to vote themselves more government goodies. "Sovereign Nation" M.A.
My parents´ and every one else´s taxes go up every year, and receive NO service from even the sheriff´s office. So buddy, enjoy your Cheez Its,it´s taxpayer funded just like everything else you vote for yourself.

Sorry for the double post. Ben Shelly, the Navajo Nation President is about to lose the biggest employer of Navajos. Obama´s EPA has declared war on coal fired energy plants. The Navajo Generating Station in Page, AZ is about to be forced to shut down by the EPA. The plant is almost all Navajo employees. The Navajos also supply most of the coal for this plant and others in the area. And this guy delivered votes to Obama, his people, already the poorest in the nation are about to lose jobs, and he´s complaining about Cheez Its.
Perhaps we can institute the Order of the Cheez-it here at L.com. It could be awarded to anyone who goes above and beyond in service to the Obamas. The retiree who donated $250,000 to the Democrats should get the first one (see #20).
Ah yes, the free lunch - cheez-its, pretzels and peanuts. Peanuts to represent the size brain of the average Zippy voter, pretzels to represent the truth that Zippy speaks and cheez-its, well cake costs money.
Regarding the comment by the immigrant from India who supported Obama because of immigrant rights: when have legal immigrants from India ever had trouble coming to the US? What was going on this year with even Asians (another group which seems to have been able to immigrate legally here for years) going for Obama because of immigration policy? More groups splintered off through Obama´s and MSM tactics of divisiveness and fear.

You know, I suppose I should feel sorry for these fools, but I don´t. They drank the kool-aid that the ´Bamster was going to take care of them. Now that they have served their purpose, they need to disappear from public view.
Thje good news is, all those commie slugs were hit in the head, fed Cheez-its, crap nobody would serve, were being told their usefulness is at an end. Hopefully, there will be a lot of drone worker bitterness. A few beginning to see the horrifying light of the ruin they have caused.
...even when idiot democrats and moron obamavoters realize they´ve been used...they do not care...after carville and begala got clinton elected they were dumped into the public bleachers for the inaugoration and excluded from the big wig partys...but remained loyal...liberals have no core values, character or moral soul and no where to go except the democratic party.
Those are the only things you´ll be able to afford post tax increases. They were played for the fools they are. The trough is already emptying. What gets me is that this is in the foreign press. I´d be happier knowing our LSM carried it. Crickets......
There is no more potent symbol of statehood than military power. It is not surprising therefore that Eurocrats regard defence policy as a key element in their drive for a state called Europe, playing a role on the global stage. The forthcoming European Council (19/20 December), when heads of government meet, has long been trailered in Brussels as a "Defence Council" to take a great leap forward in the EU´s Common Security & Defence Policy (CSDP). Actually, the modest defence-related decisions have largely been taken by Ministers in recent weeks and Prime Ministers will spend most of their time on
People buying insurance plans through Obamacare´s online exchanges may not have full access to some of the nation´s top hospitals, it has been claimed. In a bid to cut costs, insurers selling cover on the new exchanges in states including New York, Texas and California will not offer patients access to two renowned cancer centers--Memorial Sloan Kettering in Manhattan and MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, according to The Financial Times. Access to Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, one of the top research and teaching hospitals, may also be limited, as the insurers attempt to steer customers away from hospitals or
A powerful storm that crept across the country dropped snow, freezing rain and sleet on the Mid-Atlantic region and headed northeast Sunday, turning NFL playing fields in Pennsylvania into winter wonderlands, dumping a foot of snow in Delaware and threatening a messy Monday commute in the northeast corridor. The storm forced the cancellation of thousands of flights across the U.S. and slowed traffic on roads, leading to a number of accidents, including a fatal crash on the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Morgantown that led to a series of fender-benders involving 50 cars that stranded some motorists for up to seven hours.
Manhattan´s Chelsea neighborhood is home to art galleries, fashion stores, townhouses and now a new breed of cockroach that won´t die even if forced to live outside all winter. The High Line, a park that turned a dilapidated stretch of elevated railway in the neighborhood into one of New York´s newest tourist attractions, may have been responsible for bringing a new breed of cockroach to the city. Rutgers University insect biologists Jessica Ware and Dominic Evangelista said the species Periplaneta japonica is well documented in Asia but was never confirmed in the United States until now. The scientists, whose findings were published
Vladimir Putin has dissolved Russia´s biggest news agency RIA Novosti, ordering the creation of a new media conglomerate headed by an anchorman notorious for his anti-opposition and anti-gay views. The new company Rossiya Segodnya (Russia Today) will focus on "coverage abroad of Russian state policy and public life," the document published on the Kremlin website said. [Snip] The move appears as a push by the Kremlin to consolidate state media resources at a time of increasing online criticism of Mr Putin´s 13 years of rule and to take a proactive approach in shaping Russia´s image abroad.
Some patients are being forced to wait in ambulances outside hospitals for hours because accident and emergency departments are too busy to take them, according to research. In one case, a patient in Wales was made to wait more than six hours before being admitted, while another in England was delayed for more than five hours, the BBC found. NHS guidance recommends that patients should wait in ambulances for no longer than 15 minutes and delays of more than 30 minutes in England can lead to fines. Paramedics are only allowed to hand patients over to hospitals when staff there
Uniformed Romanian police officers have begun patrolling the streets of Paris to help fight a growing tide of criminality among their immigrant countrymen. In scenes which could soon be replicated in Britain, 20 officers have been introduced to help clamp down on Roma street gangs. It follows a 78 percent rise in the number of Romanians arrested in the France city over the past two years. In January, the UK is expected to see an influx of Romanians and Bulgarians arriving when EU labour restrictions are lifted. There have been warnings that they will include criminal gangs that often use
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
