FLOTUS Needs Help
American Thinker, by M. Catherine Evans

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/22/2014 7:42:30 AM

Something is seriously wrong with Michelle Obama. Pitching ObamaCare on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Mrs. Obama called young adults "knuckleheads." The first lady openly mocked the 18- to 29-year-olds who catapulted her husband into the White House in 2008 and 2012. Fallon: Because a lot of young people watch our show. Would you like to tell me - why would they...? Because a lot people don´t have the money to spend on this. Obama: Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, young people can stay on their parents´ insurance until they are 26. But once they hit 26, they´re

Communists love the young folks who are good little democrats and let Obama and his kind think for them.

But, when they start to look at reality and it doesn´t match up with "hope and change", Mooch calls them "Knuckleheads".

As a great old professor once remarked: "The school of experience is the best teacher--but the tuition is always higher."

While I have said words to myself, most foul, here I will say that Michelle Obama is a despicable human being who deserves nothing but scorn.
She is everything NOT desirable in a First Lady. She and her husband are embarrassments to the United States of America because of their WORDS and DEEDS.

FTA: ´´Webster´s Dictionary defines the slang word "knucklehead" as a "bumbling, inept, stupid" person.´´

A lot of people slamming the Mooch, but WHERE is she wrong? Rather apt description above.

When I saw this reported on Greta last night, I thought that, for once, I agreed with Mooch. She was talking about the very people who elected her knucklehead husband, twice. I so wish that Fallon had pointed that out to her. Maybe he did - I didn´t see the whole segment.

Then Greta had a guest who raved about how smart and wonderful Mooch is and what an asset she is to her husband. Do people really believe that? Then, yes, they are knuckleheads. Actually, they´re much worse, but it´d like to keep posting here.

Like most sociopathic bullies, Michelle not only tosses her prey aside after she finishes with them, but she laughs while they suffer.

She and her charming husband are the perfect pair, well-suited to each other.

"..sociopathic bullies". Bingo, Ms. Evans.

Groveling with the "common folk" on late night TV, just shows a complete lack of poise and class.

Doing a skit with 2 cross dressing men certainly sends a message about the state of our Union.

But then again, what´s new ?

At least she didn´t insult them with the more apt term, "useful idiots".

Add to the list of knuckleheads:

Single women
Blacks
Hispanics
Gays
Union members
Greenies
Occupiers
Hollywood

They are all promised government programs that will put an end to their woes but those woes never seem to go away.

The rest of us see that big government gives us the crippling regulations and the high taxes that are the cause of our woes.

Both the Obamas and the Clintons are ´Sociopathic bullies.


"
Fallon has thrown his career away by being the Obamas FOOL.
Saw Justin Timberlake was on last night - normally I would watch him - not on Fallon.
Obamas had him appear at a PRIVATE party in the WH during the shutdown.
Remember how Jackie O would have great performers and share it with the public?
FLOTUS wants to flaunt her power as the Beard of this composite. Any further political ambition of this harridan should be stopped - just like Hilary should have been stopped before she became the Butcher of Benghazi.

FTA: Seems Mrs. Obama got what she wanted in 2012, and now the empress can go all Alinsky on the poor suckers who made it happen.

That would apply to her disgusting husband also and not just the young knuckleheads who voted them back into office. Love the description "sociopathic bullies." Power hungry Marxists like them are only concerned about themselves and how they can completely control the populus and ruin the nation with their radical, anti-American policies.

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 5:14:55 AM     Post Reply
California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

On Easter weekend, Diogo Morgado portraying Jesus Christ is on screens everywhere. Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force.

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

Tens of thousands gathered for a weekend of Colorado cannabis-themed festivals and entertainment, from a marijuana industry expo called the Cannabis Cup at a trade center north of downtown, to 4/20-themed concerts at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater — acts include Slightly Stoopid and Snoop Dog — to a massive festival in the shadow of the state capitol where clouds of cannabis smoke are expected to waft at 4:20 p.m. MDT Sunday.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg.

The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."
