Liz Peek at the Fiscal Times explains why the Republicans might fail to get voters interested in repealing Obamacare, despite its unpopularity. (Snip) Thus, anyone who tries to focus on a particular Obama administration issue will find that it won’t stay put. It’s like being blasted by a Clamore mine. Once you get past counting the 50th wound, you can’t remember where the first one was. Thus, the opponents of Obamacare would be best advised to forget focusing their fire on any individual problem and focus instead on Obama. He’s the common factor in all the dozens and hundreds of

With a weak President it is actually possible to inundate the US with crisis after crisis and none of them get fixed. Is the public that linear in thinking and observation? Yes. They re-focus, like the children in a bad family situation on the familiar, the comfortable- the "woobie" the "blankie" and tune all else out. We have our entire futures being crushed by a few miscreants in the White House, Justice Department and the Senate and instead of worrying and doing something, we just keep right on going to the mall.

While I respect the PJ Media´s musing, I´m not on board with Mr. Fernandez´s opinion, in this case.

Obamacare is upmost on my mind, and MUST be repealed!

However, I don´t think it will be. The current, and upcoming crop of republicans lust for the big government control of the health care industry as much as the democrats.

Step back and make a more general argument.
The Government is:
-Too big
-Too intrusive
-Too expensive

All the various Obama ´initiatives´ can be cited as examples, but the basic principle is TOO MUCH GOVERNMENT!

0bamacare´s endless new regulations are so complicated & inefficient they are making it difficult for smaller regional & rural hospitals to convert everything to the new required system. Formerly easy record keeping is now complicated and computer breakdowns in far distant centralized locations make it impossible to do some tests in a timely fashion. It looks like 0bamacare wants to squeeze out rural hospitals?! ...??????????!

The president blamed US intelligence for misjudging the rise of ISIS in the Middle East. (Snip) But they are always somebody elses’ intelligence failures, never the president’s. The they-a culpa and headlines over US airstrikes in Syria overshadowed another possible failure of intelligence: Yemen. The administration had touted Yemen as the template for how to fight a terrorism. In late July Katherine Zimmerman in the Washington Post warned that the administration’s model wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. "President Obama says the United States is looking to its Yemen policy as a model for what to do in

Rory McIlroy struck first with a 5&4 win against Rickie Fowler before countryman Graeme McDowell came back from three down to beat Jordan Spieth 2&1. Martin Kaymer chipped in on 16 to defeat Bubba Watson 4&2 and Justin Rose scrapped back from four down against Hunter Mahan to grab a half on the last and take Europe to within half a point of retaining the trophy.

Voters should reject the
medical marijuana amendment
Tampa Tribune, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 9/28/2014 12:16:51 PM     Post Reply
It’s human nature to want to relieve the pain and suffering of another human being. And there’s no denying the testimony of thousands of patients who say marijuana has helped them endure the nausea, the loss of appetite and other symptoms associated with the treatments for cancer, AIDS and other debilitating diseases. That explains the polls showing public support for Amendment 2, which would allow the use of marijuana in Florida by patients suffering from debilitating medical conditions. If the proposed amendment were that simple, we would favor its passage. But it’s not. Amendment 2 is a broadly written blueprint

As the November elections get closer, voters in Florida will be bombarded with advertisements for candidates left and right. Throw in issue advocacy advertisements, and you’d be forgiven for wishing that political money would just evaporate. America’s labor unions, which have denounced the U.S. Supreme Court for expanding the rights of nonprofit organizations to make public statements on election matters, would seem to be the bedraggled swing voter’s ally in taking back his television. Don’t be fooled: Labor unions are among the biggest spenders in national elections, employ the same “social welfare” group tactics they decry, and use forced dues

Good riddance to polarizing Eric Holder

Those in this country who still care about right and wrong, the rule of law and “justice” not filtered through the political shop of the Obama White House just received some very good news with the announcement that the incredibly uncivil “civil rights champion” Eric Holder is resigning as attorney general. This is great news unless Barack Obama, a president with no discernible domestic or foreign policy, attempts to appoint Holder to the Supreme Court. Should that happen, hopefully some of the Democrats in the Senate now separating themselves from the foundering presidency of Obama will join with the Republicans

CBC Canada describes art at its most refined. “Just because you can’t see anything, doesn’t mean I didn’t put hours of work into creating a particular piece”. (Snip) If I were only in vicinity, I would buy up all his work with all the invisible cash in my pocket. That makes it all the more real. Because if you can see, touch or feel something, it is surely not worth it. But if you are told something is worth millions, then it must be. Told is the gold standard of truth.

GLENEAGLES, Scotland — Long on energy and short on battle scars, is there a better combination for an afternoon Ryder Cup foursomes match on a hilly course? Tom Watson, the American captain, thought so. He sat the rookies Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed, who had won their first match in a rout, and played the unbeaten team of Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley. His decision produced results only second-guessers and the Europeans could love. In Friday morning’s four-ball session, Spieth, 21, and Reed, 24, handed the European talisman Ian Poulter his first Ryder Cup defeat in his past eight matches.

TAMPA — The driver of a stolen Hillsborough County Fire Rescue pickup who caused a seven-vehicle crash on Interstate 275 on Wednesday afternoon was on a suicide mission and planned to drive against traffic on the interstate to kill himself and others, the Tampa Police Department said. John Edgerton told police after he was arrested that he wanted to drive off the interstate´s exit ramps in the stolen truck but wasn´t able to because Tampa officers and Hillsborough County Sheriff´s deputies had blocked the ramps, said Laura McElroy, a Tampa police spokeswoman. “(His plan was to) kill himself and to

Top chefs, grocers choose farmed salmon

Farmed salmon is becoming the surprise darling of top chefs and food-loving home cooks. The pink fatty fish has long been dismissed as environmentally harmful, chemical-laden or simply not that tasty by many fish lovers. Now farmed salmon producers are courting high-end chefs and improving some aspect of how they farm to win over naysayers. Restaurants from Red Lobster to New York´s revered Le Bernardin say they must have some version of salmon on menus. "It´s the chicken of the sea," says Eric Ripert, co-owner and executive chef at Le Bernardin where a prix fixe seafood dinner is $135 a

Eric Holder has suddenly announced his retirement, declaring it was time to rebuild trust between police and minorities. (Snip) Ferguson is more than a small town. It is now a political bomb shelter. Both Holder and Obama are running for cover in the only place they know how to hide. For a storm is now fairly upon them. The new Iraqi prime minister announced the existence of an ISIS plot to attack subways in New York, London and Paris. Foreign Policy writes that “a bad moon is rising”.

The Center for American Progress notes without embarrassment that in an age where stuff made by the greedy people has gotten cheap, the services provided by the well-intentioned are driving everyone to the poorhouse. (Snip) Since the consumer doesn’t directly pay the hospital, only the vast insurance system, most transactions are between huge impersonal medical centers and equally cyclopean insurance companies. The patient is just the pretext for the transaction, the name on the document. That allows hospital billing departments to charge astronomical amounts from eyeless bureaucracies for something that would be radically cheaper even at the hospital across the

In the year 1942, on the tropical island of Guadalcanal, two Marines independently created the most enduring superhero image of their generation. John Basilone and Mitchell Paige both won the Medal of Honor in the same spectacular fashion, by firing water-cooled Browning machine guns from the hip, mowing down their enemies by the dozen. Other men, like attack pilots and certainly submarine captains, might have dispatched more of the enemy, but none in so cinematic as manner of these two men, who wreathed in steam and gunsmoke, stood like Achilles astride the battlefield, possessed by an almost supernatural force so

President Obama spoke to the Congressional Black Caucus Awards Dinner in Washington, D.C. on Saturday. According to a White House transcript of the speech, Obama said the following: “All around the country, wherever I see folks, they always say, oh, Barack, we’re praying for you – boy, you’re so great; look, you got all gray hair, you looking tired. (Laughter.) We’re praying for you. Which I appreciate…” Here’s the video:(Snip for video)Obama must only be getting his feedback on the golf course as the rest of the country doesn’t think he’s so great these days.

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked neurosurgeon and GOP novelty Ben Carson, who is very vocally teasing a presidential run, if his inexperience disqualified him from the office, especially given the results of Obama’s alleged inexperience. “After looking at Barack Obama and what’s happened with his lack of political experience over the last six years, wouldn’t putting Ben Carson in the Oval Office be akin to putting a politician in an operating room and having him perform one of your brain surgeries?” Wallace asked. Shockingly, Carson said no. “I think what is required for leadership is wisdom and the

In an update on Friday afternoon, one of the country´s leading independent political handicappers broadened its assessment of how many House seats Republicans are likely to win this fall. "Regardless of whether you want to call it a wave," wrote the Rothenberg Political Report´s Nathan Gonzales -- the sort of qualifier that will keep Democratic operatives up at night -- "the fight for the House continues to creep into Democratic territory." Talk of a Republican tsunami made us wonder: Where could the 114th Congress stand on the list of the most-lopsided Houses in history? After all, the party has rolled

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new
