I have to admit that I pondered the title for this post far more than usual. Using the words “Lena Dunham,” and “nude” in the post title might repel a ton more readers that it would attract. But, just out of the irony, I thought I might cover it. Come to think of it, I really wish she would cover it too-all of it. Lena Dunham did appear nude on SNL last Saturday, and the ratings tanked… As expected, Girls creator/star Lena Dunham got nude on Saturday Night Live this weekend, in one scene mocking the Genesis Eden story, where […]
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.
It seems that if Obama wants to play “war” with Syria, he might have to play with himself, as his would-be allies are seeing through his “let’s start a war to get attention off my fail” game. First off, the British House of Commons told PM Cameron to shove off… Even the lefty NY Daily News made a mockery of Barry… If Obama supporters thought he was going to change how the world views us, they were right. Obama is a failure, an embarrassment, and a fool. And frankly, the whole world sees it, except the MSM, and the few […]
Just in case anyone has forgotten… The Democrats did it, and the GOP, with the exception of a few-not enough, were cowards, and were stopped by claims of racism by Democrats. The Bush administration raised multiple warning about the market. Sadly, these were not heeded. But, as it shows in the video, the Democrats doubled down on the failure, but then blamed someone else once the poo hit the fan.
With all the scandals in Washington grabbing the headlines, the announcement that the city of Detroit is planning to default on $2.5 billion of unsecured debt is not getting the attention it should. From Fox News: Detroit said Friday it would stop making payments on about $2.5 billion in unsecured debt and ask creditors to take about 10 cents on the dollar of what the city owes them in a move to avoid what bankruptcy experts have said would be the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. Detroit is not just some decaying city you are fortunate enough not live […]
That’s right, comrade! The future is brighter for the disabled people in the People’s Republic of Detroit! Either that, or Detroit’s curbs should have been curbed in the first place. Motor City Times has a hilariously typical example of big government at work… Friend of MCT, T Shelton sent a link to a very interesting post @ Motor City Muckraker. MCM has a post giving us a small glimpse into the absurdity that is government bureaucracy run wild (at the local and federal level): Two years after the city dished out the tax dollars to install the ramps, the Motor City Muckraker examined the whereabouts of […]
Last month, law enforcement officials released some asinine advise. They apparently suggested, with a straight face, that school teachers, and even children, bum rush an active shooter. Gateway Pundit had the coverage last month… KSDK reported: Law enforcement authorities are increasingly advising school officials – and even young students – to physically confront suspects in future campus attacks as a final line of defense. The advisories, now included in training videos and documents prepared by police, represent a major shift in tactics for law enforcement officials who have traditionally counseled potential victims to flee and hide while waiting for authorities […]

How do you defend yourself? Do not despair. If you follow these easy steps you stand an excellent chance of […]
Yes, you aren’t going to believe it , but a Qantas passenger was told to change his shirt..because it read… Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die Apparently, it “intimidated” another flyer. MSN has more… Wynand Mullins was flying from Sydney, Australia, to Auckland, New Zealand, on Qantas Airways on Sunday when his T-shirt prompted concern among passengers and crew, he told New Zealand media. Mullins was wearing a shirt adorned with the image of a giant name tag with the slogan: “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to […]
