Scott Walker: Unemployment benefits,
minimum wage push because Obama
´desperately´ wants to avoid Obamacare

Washington Examiner (DC), by Joseph Lawler

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/5/2014 11:41:20 AM

Wisconsin governor Scott Walker dismissed the White House´s push to extend emergency unemployment benefits and raise the minimum wage Sunday morning, criticizing Democrats´ all-out push for legislation as an effort to distract from the recent problems with the new health care law. "They want to desperately talk about anything other than Obamacare,” the conservative Republican Walker told CNN´s Candy Crowley on Sunday morning. Walker appeared on the network shortly after Obama´s economic adviser Gene Sperling had come on to advocate keeping emergency unemployment benefits, which lapsed in December, in place.

He also wants to paint the Republicans as cruel and heartless,,who don´t care about people who are struggling. This will be a talking point for the next three years (ad nauseam).

And of course the irony is his policies are 100% responsible for the feeble economy and resultant high unemployment, all of which disproportionately harms those who voted for him, and those he purports (along with his democrat sidekicks) to want to help.

As former Governor Weld once said, the best social program is a good job. Amen.

Here´s the question I want answered: how come Obama voters are unable or unwilling to take care of themselves? Are they a) crippled blind or paralyzed?...in which case I´m all in favor of helping them some b) shiftless and bone-idle? c) entitled to an endless stream of free goodies because of their race, national origin, or some distant wrong done someone to whom they might be related? or d)thieving rotten leeches who´ve found a way to loot the Treasury? I bet the number fitting some combination of b through d is a thousand times that of a.

Liberalism is a painful mental condition which requires enormous taxes and welfare benefits. Calling the latest extension of unemployment benefits unemployment benefits is a misnomer, it welfare. Nancy Pelosi claims unemployment is a form of employment, then the unemployed should be paid a minimum of $15.00 and hour for an eight hour day, five days a week, with time and a half for weekends.
Since gas prices have decreased we can increase fuel taxes exponentially.

I´ll bet 90% of Obama supporters believe the government pays for the whole costs of unemployment,not the employer they used to work for.One of the reason they´re avoiding hiring,is the cost related if they have to lay them off at a later time.

The left isn´t fighting for people who lost insurance because they think they´re most;y older white people who could afford it but are too stingy.

There´s millions and millions of people who are unemployed but can´t collect unemployment.They make it somehow,what makes this other crowd so special unless they´re former union workers.

He’s not “unknown”, and he didn’t just pop up on the horizon. The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views. The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller. As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010.

Bill Clinton is cheating — on his vegan diet. Clinton’s doctor let the secret out in New York Times that sometimes the former president cheats on his healthy diet. But two of the nation’s leading vegan and vegetarian organizations say they’re willing to give Clinton a pass since he is mostly adhering to the tenants of the diet. Why does Clinton continue to call himself a vegan? “There is some latitude … he is primarily a vegan,” said Len Torine, Executive Director of the American Vegetarian Association. “Whatever amount of vegan you are, I support it.

Russia has asked the United States to use its influence to prevent bloodshed in eastern Ukraine, as Kiev threatened a "large-scale anti-terrorist operation" to remove separatists from government buildings. Russian President Vladimir Putin made the appeal during a phone conversation with US President Barack Obama, in which the Kremlin said the two leaders discussed the escalating unrest. The Kremlin said the Russian president also rejected Western claims that Moscow is behind attacks on government buildings, saying they were "based on unfounded information." Earlier Mr Putin´s spokesman said Russia had received several

While the Supreme Court considers one challenge to a provision of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a federal appeals court located just blocks away is contemplating a separate challenge that could have much more dire consequences for the future of the law. “What you’re asking for is to destroy the individual mandate, which guts the statute,” Judge Harry T. Edwards of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia said to an attorney representing the challengers during a hearing on March 25. The case — Halbig vs. Sebelius — was heard by Edwards and two other judges and

James Zogby: Democrats Must

Ethnic Voters
Breitbart Big Government, by Warner Todd Huston    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/14/2014 10:45:26 PM     Post Reply
Arab American Institute President and Democrat strategist James Zogby has a warning for the Democrat Party. He feels his party is losing the vote of Americans of European and Mediterranean descent – and they´d better get it back. Zogby is especially worried about losing ground in the important states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania – all states with a large contingent of voters with "European/Mediterranean" lineage. He thinks that these states could help Democrats with the close margin we have seen for years in American election results but only if Democrats don´t ignore these voters. In his op-ed, Zogby

New figures by the Congressional Budget Office released on Monday reveal that over the next 10 years the U.S. debt-to-GDP ratio will double to 78%. Over the last four decades America´s average debt-to-GDP ratio was 39%. At the end of 2007, federal debt was just 35% of GDP. The CBO report says gross federal debt will soar from $17.7 trillion to $27 trillion over the next ten years. CBO warned of the dire consequences the nation´s debt will have if gone unchecked. "Such high and rising debt would have serious negative consequences," says the report. "Federal spending on interest payments

A well-loved Maryland supermarket is being forced to limit the amount of full time workers they hire because of the harsh mandates imposed by Obamacare. Snider’s Superfoods, family owned and operated since 1946, says that they will not be hiring any new baggers or cashiers in order to avoid the 50 worker threshold, which under the new Obamacare stipulations, would require that they provide health insurance if they employ 50 or more full time workers. Kevin Kuhlman, Manager of Legislative Affairs at the National Federation of Independent Businesses, explained employers’ financially motivated decision not to hire more workers to avoid the

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

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)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
