Obama Is Going To Punish Everyone For His Sequester

I think this is akin to a 2 year old throwing himself on the floor and pitching a fit because he didn't get his way. To me it reveals the absolute depravity of today's democrat party. They will deliberately burn something down or engage in random destruction if thwarted. They care nothing of society, morality, justice or fairness. It also allows obama to not jail ILLEGAL ALIENS and I suspect it will be a net positive for him as his base believes there should be no immigration or border enforcement anyway. I voted for the other guy in case anyone is wondering.

Barack Obama Pulls a Move Almost Worthy of Saddam Hussein

Shortly before U.S. troops stormed Iraq to oust its dictator, Saddam Hussein released thousands of prisoners from Iraqi jails. Some were petty criminals, some were hardcore, some were terrorists. Hussein unleashed them to build his own popularity and to sow chaos.

Today, Barack H. Obama’s Department of Homeland Security is doing this:

The sequester is officially still three days away, but the Obama administration already is making the first cuts, with officials confirming that the Homeland Security Department has begun to release what it deems low-priority illegal immigrants from detention.
The move is proving controversial. Immigrant-rights groups say it shows the administration was detaining folks it never should have gone after in the first place, while Republicans questioned the decision-making.

James O’Meara Announces Run For Wilkes Barre Area School Board

I woke this morning and discovered this in my E - mail. I had been expecting it as I knew Jim was considering a run. I know Jim and believe him to one of the finest men I have ever met...  decent ....honest and perhaps one of the most detail oriented people I know, he looks after the small stuff before it becomes big stuff. He does his homework and when he doesn't know he finds the answers.

My name is James O’Meara Sr. and I am running for Wilkes-Barre Area School Director.

I am a 1975 graduate of Wyoming Area. I’ve lived in Plains Township since 1984. I attended Penn State as an undergraduate. I also attended College Misericordia (now Misericordia University) during the early years of my marriage. In each case I left college to work full-time. I have a lot of credits, but no sheepskin. Both of my children attended Wilkes-Barre Area schools and both graduated from James M. Coughlin High School.

Over the years, I advanced in my careers through hard work and my own initiative. I haven't been afraid to take chances. I currently work in retail sales and run a small business. I also have sixteen years of information services experience (including management) under my belt. Like many other Americans in these uncertain times, I have experienced the challenges of joblessness. I know what it is like to face the cruel economic uncertainty that comes with the loss of a job.

I am deaf, but my hearing was restored with bilateral cochlear implants. The first thing I did after getting my hearing back was run for office. I relished the chance to once again talk with …and especially listen to …thousands of people in a door-to-door campaign for state representative. As a candidate for school director, I will campaign the same way. I will listen to what you have to say. And I will take your message with me to every school board meeting.

So why am I running?

I have one young grandchild, and another is due any day now. I worry about the quality of education they will receive in the years ahead. I am concerned that the education of our children and grandchildren is being compromised in the Wilkes-Barre Area School District.

The Pennsylvania state constitution mandates in Article II, Section 14 that, “The General Assembly shall provide for the maintenance and support of a thorough and efficient system of public education.”

I believe the Wilkes-Barre Area School Board has a long way to go in meeting this constitutional mandate.

The Citizens’ Voice reported in June, 2012 that Wilkes-Barre Area “…is the only school district in the entire seven-county region that failed to meet the state average in any of the 20 Pennsylvania System of School Assessment tests or the SAT for the 2010-2011 school year.” From where I sit the district gets a failing grade for delivering a thorough system of public education.

As to the efficiency mandated by our state constitution, the failures there border on the spectacular.

Just days ago, the Citizens’ Voice reported that Wilkes-Barre Area’s billing requirements were so derelict that a forensic audit couldn’t resolve whether the former solicitor overbilled for more than half a decade. In other words, it was impossible for the auditor to figure out whether the district was robbed, careless or both.

Last November, the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader lambasted five members of the board for “…refusing to recognize and prohibit the destructive influence of nepotism on a public institution.” In recent news, one board member is voting from half a world away.

This is a school board badly in need of a shake-up.

It’s time for some common sense leadership. It’s time for voters to send a clear message that politics as usual in the Wilkes-Barre Area School District must end.

I look forward to delivering this message personally in November, and I ask for your support.

Thank you, and together let’s make a difference!

James O’Meara, Sr.

Why Did God Make Democrats

God looked down on Washington D.C. and said “I need someone who will steal morning, noon and night. Who will steal from the rich to give to the poor and steal from the poor to give to the rich and fool them all and keep all the loot.”
So God made a Democrat.

God said, “I need college man to come to a farm and tell the farmer that he can’t feed his hogs with lettuce from his own farm or use the manure from his pigs to grow his lettuce. I need an inspector who will tell him how much he can sell his milk for and warn him that his son riding on the tractor constitutes child labor. I need someone to pay a farmer not to farm so that poor people can’t afford bread.”

So God made a Democrat.

“I want a union organizer who hires non-union picketers to keep workers from working, a politician who fights for the people by taking money from billionaires and a clergyman who worships whoever runs on the party line. I want a banker who fights for the poor and gives to the party and a party that pays the poor man eight times to vote for the banker’s man.”

So God made a Democrat.

“I need someone to retire at 55 with generous benefits from a government job. I need lawmakers who will pass laws without reading them. I need teachers who refuse to teach kids unless they’re paid twice as much as any worker in their city. I need people to sit on commissions and make rules about lines of work that they’ve never been in.”

So God made a Democrat

“I need a Catholic who’s for abortion. A Jew who’s for Palestine. A Mormon who’s against the Church. A Baptist who’s for evolution. A Methodist who doesn’t believe in god. And a Muslim who believes in destroying America.”
So God made a Democrat.

He said, “I need someone who starts all the wars and protests against all the wars. Who is first in line to sign up to fight against his country but comes out as a pacifist when it’s time to defend it. I want war heroes who throw their medals over fences and then gather them up again when it’s time to run for office. I want men who are for everything before they’re against it”

So God made a Democrat.

“I need a working class man who who has never worked a day in his life, but always talks about caring for those who do. I need a man who talks all the time about helping women, blacks, lesbians, Eskimos and Martians get ahead and then drops them like a dirty rag when he has what he wants. A man who gets up at 11:30 in the afternoon to help the less fortunate by passing laws that will make them even less fortunate. A man who takes nine tenths of what’s meant for the poor and lets them have the leftovers.”

So God made a Democrat.

“I need a man who believes in himself too much to take responsibility for anything he did. I need a man who is tolerantly intolerant, who is outraged all day by everything in the world except his own outrageous behavior. I need a man who is for freedom of speech except when he’s offended, for freedom of religion except when he disagrees with it and for the right to bear arms but only for those weapons that existed in 1791.”

So God made a Democrat.

God said, “I need a party of jackasses that will always break through the fence and spoil everything that the farmer grows. I need bad men to test good men and liars, cheats and thieves with clipboards to teach neighbors to stick together against them. I need a man with no more conscience than a rattlesnake leading a band of fools with less sense than sheep. And I need him to keep the farmers and ranchers, the workers and doers on their toes so they always remember that evil never rests and keeping it down can sometimes be the hardest work of all.”

So God made a Democrat.

And On The 8'th Day ... God Created A Liberal

Crazed Cop A Left Wing Whack Job

Personally I think nuts is just nuts but in the spirit of fairness and remembering what they did to Palin in insisting that her map of targeted Congressional districts  drove the gunman that shot gabby giffords insane. I can only point out that this man seems to have been driven over the edge by obama and the likes of chris mathews. Years of liberal drivel has rotted his brain and he's just following obama's advice of bringing a gun to a fight.

News Media Scrub Cop Murderer’s Manifesto of Pro-Obama, Hillary, MSNBC, CNN, Gay, and Anti-Gun Comments

I’ve been following closely the news story about Chris Dorner, who is now suspected of murdering three people, including one police officer, and shooting another two police officers. He is targeting police and their families for what he says is a corrupt system that robbed him of his name and his life.

You can read all the details here.

However, I started noticing that some of the details the media was talking about didn’t fit the released manifesto I’ve read everywhere. Especially interesting, is that KFI’s morning news regurgitator Bill Handel had mentioned some pro-Obama comments and anti-NRA sentiments in the manifesto.

But these weren’t in the copy that KFI themselves released – see for yourself.

This video from FOX News Los Angeles reports that the manifesto was 22 pages long, while the manifesto released was only 11.
The page where FOX News LA had the manifesto is now deleted. Comments don’t mention the manifesto at all.
KTLA also has the abbreviated manifesto, with this parenthetical: “KTLA has removed the names of a number of officers out of respect for their privacy.”
FOX News reposted the manifesto, with all the names redacted as the authorities asked, but it still doesn’t have the second half.
ABC 7 has also posted a redacted half version of the manifesto.

Being curious, I started looking for a complete copy, but other mainstream news media only had the abbreviated copy.

However, I was able to find a complete copy of the posting, from the website “Crime File News” – the details in it corroborate with the reading that Bill Handel gave on the KFI morning show today.

So why did they edit it?

What’s the difference between posting 11 rambling pages and 21 rambling pages? Look at what’s taken out:

Does Anyone Remember When They Laughed At Sarah Palin And Death Panels

Yep ...they did, I remember it. obama laughed at it .... biden laughed at it ...  all of obama's Flying Monkey's in the media laughed at it.... krugman in the vid below laughed at it..... polifact called it the lie of the year in 2009. Well....  surprise .... surprise ..... surprise it seems that ever so quietly they are now admitting that Palin was indeed right .... as usual. It gets better however he also admits that there is going to have to be tax increases on the middle class to pay for it all. So to sum it up .... its not going to save us money .... there are death panels .... and we will see a tax increase to pay for it. Remember I voted for the other guy. In case you forgot this is what Palin said below. Now they may call it something other than a duck but trust me folks they can try to dress it up anyway they want but its still going to be a duck in a moose suit.

" The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil. "

And They Can't Figure Out Why Boys Are So Screwed Up

O.K. ....first let me say I am a war criminal. Yes its true in my youth I wiped out billions of humans ... evil space aliens ....hordes of  Nazi's .... the entire nation of Japan ....several times. I personally put under an even 100,000,000 or so Indians back when it was O.K. to call them Indians. I killed British by the buckets, I wiped out entire planets, galaxies and even entire universes on a mere whim, just cause I could. I was part of a pack of kids who were as blood thirsty as I was and in looking back I am certain that we set Gods plan to populate the Earth and elsewhere back by a considerable margin. I did all this with my trusty cap gun .... death rays ... planet busters and the odd destroys everything let Jesus sort them out super duper never miss nowhere to run no where to hide  super secret big BOOM bomb .... trust me folks .... no one got out alive.I never missed and I never took prisoners. Today I would be a lifer in some super max facility with Hannibal Lecter as my only neighbor. It would be that or society would have to destroy me outright to save itself. The age of 6 was a tough year. I would like to add that society can breathe a sigh of relief .... I have long since reformed.  Go to the link and watch the vid

Seven Year-Old Suspended For Fighting Pretend Evil Forces (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, 2:47 PM

These poor kids are going to be so messed up in the head by the time they reach high school.
Now, fighting evil forces is a school violation.
Cain TV reported:

In Loveland Colorado, about 45 minutes North of Denver, a 7-year-old 2nd grader has been suspended for trying to save the world. It appears that the boy lobbed “an imaginary grenade into a box with what he called pretend evil forces inside.”
According to the child, he pretended to blow up the box “so nothing can get out and destroy the world.”

This is nuts.

Obama Said " Pull My Finger " The Liberals Pulled It ..... Twice

I really don't need to add anything more I

As the federal government moves forward to implement President Obama's Affordable Care Act, the Department of Health and Human Services is slated to spend millions of dollars promoting the unpopular legislation. In the face of this publicity blitz, it is worth remembering that the law was originally sold largely on four grounds—all of which have become increasingly implausible.

• Lower health-care costs. One key talking point for ObamaCare was that it would reduce the cost of insurance, especially for non-group insurance. The president, citing the work of several health-policy experts, claimed that improved care coordination, investments in information technology, and more efficient marketing through exchanges would save the typical family $2,500 per year.

That was then. Now, even advocates for the law acknowledge that premiums are going up. In analyses conducted for the states of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Colorado, Jonathan Gruber of MIT forecasts that premiums in the non-group market will rise by 19% to 30% due to the law. Other estimates are even higher. The actuarial firm Milliman predicts that non-group premiums in Ohio will rise by 55%-85%. Maine, Oregon and Nevada have sponsored their own studies, all of which reach essentially the same conclusion.

David Klein
Some champions of the law argue that this misses the point, because once the law's new subsidies are taken into account, the net price of insurance will be lower. This argument is misleading. It fails to consider that the money for the subsidies has to come from somewhere. Although debt-financed transfer payments may make insurance look cheaper, they do not change its true social cost.

Smaller deficits. Increases in the estimated impact of the law on private insurance premiums, along with increases in the estimated cost of health care more generally, have led the Congressional Budget Office to increase its estimate of the budget cost of the law's coverage expansion. In 2010, CBO estimated the cost per year of expanding coverage at $154 billion; by 2012, the estimated cost grew to $186 billion. Yet CBO still scores the law as reducing the deficit.

How can this be? The positive budget score turns on the fact that the estimated revenues to pay for the law have risen along with its costs. The single largest source of these revenues? Money taken from Medicare in the form of lower Medicare payment rates, mostly in the law's out-years. Since the law's passage, however, Congress and the president have undone various scheduled Medicare cuts—including some prescribed by the law itself.

Put aside the absurdity that savings from Medicare—the country's largest unfunded liability—can be used to finance a new entitlement. The argument that health reform decreases the deficit is even worse. It depends on Congress and the president not only imposing Medicare cuts that they have proven unwilling to make but also imposing cuts that they have already specifically undone, most notably to Medicare Advantage, a program that helps millions of seniors pay for private health plans.

Preservation of existing insurance. After the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of health reform in June 2012, President Obama said, "If you're one of the more than 250 million Americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your insurance." This theme ran throughout the selling of ObamaCare: People who have insurance would not have their current arrangements disrupted.

This claim is obviously false. Indeed, disruption of people's existing insurance is one of the law's stated goals. On one hand, the law seeks to increase the generosity of policies that it deems too stingy, by limiting deductibles and mandating coverage that the secretary of Health and Human Services thinks is "essential," whether or not the policyholder can afford it. On the other hand, the law seeks to reduce the generosity of policies that it deems too extravagant, by imposing the "Cadillac tax" on costly insurance plans.

Employer-sponsored insurance has already begun to change. According to the annual Kaiser/HRET Employer Health Benefits Survey, the share of workers in high-deductible plans rose to 19% in 2012 from 13% in 2010.

That's just the intended consequences. One of the law's unintended consequences is that some employers will drop coverage in response to new regulations and the availability of subsidized insurance in the new exchanges. How many is anybody's guess. In 2010, CBO estimated that employer-sponsored coverage would decline by three million people in 2019; by 2012, CBO's estimate had doubled to six million.

Increased productivity. In 2009, the president's Council of Economic Advisers concluded that health reform would reduce unemployment, raise labor supply, and improve the functioning of labor markets. According to its reasoning, expanding insurance coverage would reduce absenteeism, disability and mortality, thereby encouraging and enabling work.

This reasoning is flawed. The evidence that a broad coverage expansion would improve health is questionable. Some studies have shown that targeted coverage can improve the health of certain groups. But according to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Economic Research Initiative on the Uninsured, "evidence is lacking that health insurance improves the health of non-elderly adults." More recent work by Richard Kronick, a health-policy adviser to former President Bill Clinton, concludes "there is little evidence to suggest that extending insurance coverage to all adults would have a large effect on the number of deaths in the U.S."

The White House economic analysis also fails to consider the adverse consequences of income-based subsidies on incentives. The support provided by both the Medicaid expansion and the new exchanges phases out as a family's income rises. But, as I and others have pointed out in these pages, income phaseouts create work disincentives like taxes do, because they reduce the net rewards to work. Further, the law imposes taxes on employers who fail to provide sufficiently generous insurance, with exceptions for part-time workers and small firms. On net, it is hard to see how health reform will make labor markets function better.

Some believe that expanding insurance coverage is a moral imperative regardless of its cost. Most supporters of the law, however, use more nuanced arguments that depend on assumptions that are increasingly impossible to defend. If we are ever to have an honest debate about entitlement spending, we will need to distinguish these positions from one another—and see them for what they really are, rather than what we wish they would be.

Praise Jesus We're Saved ....Again

Well we're at war with Eurasia today ...... LOL it. According to more than a few folks in the press with just a few more months like this our economy will be just ducky. The new unemployment numbers came out and it seems we have more unemployed in Jan than we did in Dec. Now for most people if a bad number goes up that means you have more bad stuff happening but that's just not the case under obama. In fact under obama the more bad stuff that happens the better off we are, GDP tanks and its reported as "

This Is 'Best-Looking' GDP Drop You'll Ever See

The unemployment rate goes up and its all sunshine and roses and all we need are a few more people on welfare and unemployment and the economy will be back in the pink. Its almost Orwellian

Unemployment Rate Ticks Up to 7.9 Percent

The latest government jobs report shows a continuation of slow but steady growth
