We covered the debacle that was Cash for Clunkers as it happened. Ulterior Motives in “Cash for Clunkers?” Cash for Clunkers: Revisited Cash for Clunkers Revisited: More Damage Done Cash for Clunkers Update: Jobs Created for the Bargain Price of $1,400,000 a Pop Additional evidence of it’s failure continue to come in years later. The latest Cash for Clunkers evidence comes to us courtesy of the Lonely Conservative… This is how Democrats “help” the economy. The government’s “Cash for Clunkers” program – pitched as a plan to jump-start U.S. auto sales and clean up the environment by getting gas-guzzling vehicles […]
After finally solving problems with computer viruses this past weekend, there was an e-mail waiting from a good friend. He was wondering about General Motors’ recall of 2.6 million cars for faulty ignition switches, which have caused at least thirteen deaths, and what the Obama administration knew at the time it was illegally bailing out GM with $49 billion of your money. Well, one thing we can say with certainty is that President Obama was totally unaware of this problem at that time, because he never knows anything until or unless he hears it on MSNBC. The truth is that […]
Michelle Obama should be proud. The school lunch program that she championed is such a great success, that students all over the US are singing it’s….praises? The Blaze has some tweets… Yes, the kids are speaking out, and it seems to be more cursing than anything else. Of course, the government’s response is been to basically say STFU. As a result of these clearly fulfilling lunches, over 1,000,000 less children are taking part in the school lunch program. In the extended economic fail fueled by Obama’s policies should cause the school lunch program to grow even more. But, as […]
Public schools are agents of liberalism. Therefore, expect force and censorship to be part of the methodology. Take the example of Katherine Duran, who was “suspended” from her son’s school for opposing Common Core… A school in Sacramento, California, has suspended a mom over her stance against Common Core. You read that correctly, the Mark Twain School in Sacramento has told the mother of a 12-year-old student that she has been suspended for two weeks. Police in Sacramento served the 14-day suspension to Katherine Duran in her home following a disagreement with the school over the soon-to-be enacted Common Core standards. […]
If you ask liberals, who recite their talking points very well, President Obama has “restored out standing in the world.” Or, America is respected even more in the world. Apparently, they think that apologizing all over the world, bowing to foreign kings, blowing up people with drones, and being punked by every regime that takes a shot at him, is earning respect. For the latest example, here is the crowd’s reaction to Obama in Europe last week… Yup, Obama is changed our image in the world. We are now a laughing stock.
As we head into the new year, with an eye on the upcoming, all-important mid-term elections, let’s take a look back at how two different presidents handled a crisis, shall we? These events are separate; each having their own hurdles and problems, but both tied to the same geographic area. On one hand, we have President George W. Bush and one of the major crises of his administration – that would be Hurricane Katrina. And on the other, we have President Barack H. Obama and his response to the Gulf Oil Spill. On April 20, 2010 the deep water oil […]
According to Wyblog, New Jersey reacted to the Sandy Hook massacre by passing some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country. And, like other states or cities that have passed strict gun laws, the murder rate went up… In 2013 NJ enacted the stricted gun laws in the nation, and the murder rate soared Last year our knee-jerk liberal fascists reacted predictably to the Newtown, CT school shooting by enacting some of the strictest gun control legislation in the nation. Also last year the murder rate in our fine state soared to a seven-year high. Coincidence? I mean […]
When Clinton said, “…depends on what your definition is ‘is,’ is,” we had thought we heard the pinnacle, or nadir, or political diversions and lies. But, Obama’s ObamaCare, “If you like you plan, you can keep it,” has far surpassed Clinton’s fib for all out intentional lying. Consider it a more bold act of audacity. If you thought Obama’s persistent lie was bad, you should see how Diane Feinstein tried to defend it! FEINSTEIN: Well, as I understand it, you can keep it up to the time — and I hope this is correct, but this is what I’ve been […]
Government programs tend to fail, and fail hard. “Cash for Clunkers” was no exception, as we had covered here at the CH 2.0. Ulterior Motives in “Cash for Clunkers?” Cash for Clunkers: Revisited Cash for Clunkers Revisited: More Damage Done So then, we see a report that indicates that some jobs might have been created, to the tune of $1,400,000 a job. Steve, at Motor City Times, has more… Free markets are the only way to go: A Bookings Institution study found the $2.85 billion program “provided a short-term boost in vehicle sales, which were pulled forward from sales that […]
Once again, we see that the Obama administration knew about the quality and performance issues with ObamaCare website. Washington (CNN) — The Obama administration was given stark warnings just one month before launch that the federal healthcare site was not ready to go live, according to a confidential report obtained by CNN. Read documents The caution, from the main contractor CGI, warned of a number of open risks and issues for the HealthCare.gov web site even as company executives were testifying publicly that the project had achieved key milestones. On Capitol Hill on Tuesday, Medicaid Chief Marilyn Tavenner, whose job […]
With a name like that, who wouldn’t? But seriously, Dr. Keith Ablow, psychiatrist and frequent talking head on Fox News, does think the man-child in the Oval Office suffers from “victim mentality” and that this fact explains much about Mr. Obama’s irrational behavior. President Obama’s rhetoric is finally coming closer to what appears to be his psychological truth: Because America victimized him and countless millions of others, any person or party or movement that opposes his views and does not yield to him is not just his adversary, but abusive, predatory and even threatening. The Doctor goes on to explain […]
Detroit is the perfect exemplification of long term results of liberalism on a geographical area. Massive corruption, crime, flight of businesses, fight of productive people, decay, death-it’s all there, for the world to see. Of course, liberals there follow the classic strategy of making it someone else’s fault, but that fall on deaf ears. As yet another examples of Detroit’s ruins, here is a link to some images of a public library-long abandoned by the citizenry; of which, nearly half cannot read.
It seems that in this government shutdown, the Park Police some how has the money to have more police to keep people out than they ever had to let them in. Funny, isn’t it? Well, some Americans decided to ignore the democrat shutdown by going over, or through, the “barrycades” around the Lincoln Memorial. Here is some news footage… It is said that the Park Service amassed a “small army,” and ran off the intruders. That, of course, begs the question, if the have that many park police on duty, why aren’t the monuments open in the first place? The […]
ObamaCare Fail Mashup: Still Having Hard Time Finding people That Signed Up, Websites are Still not Working,
How can ObamaCare be Cloward-Piven for the healthcare industry if people can’t even sign up for it? A TV Station in El Paso looked and looked, but could not even find someone who had done so. If I ran a business, and my website would not work, I wouldn’t be in business for long. Here is some more on the website fail, which spreads well beyond Texas. It’s been a full week since the Affordable Care Act went into effect, yet New Mexico Watchdog — like millions of Americans and doubtless thousands in New Mexico— is still unable to create an account […]
Vladimir Putin took to the airwaves and systematically, and very politely made Barak Obama look like an utter tool and amateur. Seriously, it was politics as art. Watch the whole thing. If, when I was 24, you would have told me that the Russian President would make the American President look like a simpering fool, I would have laughed. I’m laughing today, but for an entirely different reason.
