ObamaCare Forces Insurance Companies to Spend YOUR Money

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. ObamaCare Wants Your Financial Information so Insurance Companies can Enroll You WITHOUT Your permission AND Charge You! . . ACA Requires Insurance Companies Enroll You In Plans Without Your Permission Today I received a letter from my insurance company Horizon Blue Cross, Blue Shield of New Jersey (“BCBSNJ”).  They alerted me that my plan (which already went up from $187 to $216) would now be rising again. I had expected this day would come but what I did not expect was that the ACA empowered insurance companies who had a person’s checking account on file to automatically enroll […]

If you’re wondering if our government is friend or foe, wonder no more.

Political cartoonists are some of our most clever people. With simple caricatures and a few words they are able to capture the essence of an important issue facing the people. In my opinion, this cartoon which I borrowed from Zero Hedge, explains perfectly why Americans on Main Street do not feel like the government is working in your best interests. h/t @butifulabsurdt That’s exactly right, isn’t it? The well being of the folks on Main Street was not a fundamental of interest to our central planners in Washington, D.C. Your well being was not a part of their calculus. Instead, […]

ObamaCare – Fake Applicants Approved For Health Care Subsidies

It’s been a while since I wrote about ObamaCare, but this is worthy of a post. We all know, if we will admit to the knowledge, that ObamaCare is a boondoggle. It is a massive federal program that is poorly designed and even more poorly conceived. It is an attempt to take over the health care system in America, out of the control of the patients and doctors and placing it in the control of the federal bureaucracy. If for no other reason than that, it is a bad law and even worse program. When you consider the ineptitude and […]

Veterans Affairs – Latest Example Of Government Gone Big And Bad

If you have read many of my posts, you will know I am not a fan of big government. I have railed against it on more than a few occasions and I firmly believe the quote from Thomas Jefferson in the above picture is true. Most bad government comes from having too much government. For the most part, it does not work the way its champions claim it will. Time after time, we have seen the examples. Government agencies growing too big for the pants they are trying to wear. The EPA and the IRS both think they are God […]

Executive Order Creates New Department of Feline Education

President Obama today issued a sweeping executive order creating the Federal Department of Feline Education. “America faces perhaps no greater threat than feral cats mired in the vicious cycle of poverty” declared the President in a Rose Garden ceremony. Many are familiar with the tragic case in New York City where signs were placed in the Gateway National Recreation Area warning felines that they cannot live in cat colonies on Federal property.  Because of the high illiteracy rate among feral cats many could not read the sign resulting in the colony being tragically killed by a SWAT team.  Americans are […]

Guest Post From The Classic Liberal: There Is No Conservative Movement

Note From Matt:   The following  is a guest post from The Classic Liberal.  It is posted here because our friend has the habit of forcing us to think about what we are doing.  I’m all for debate, and being challenged, so give this a read, and see if it makes you consider your thinking or actions.   Dan Riehl wrote a couple of posts earlier this year that are worth examining. Here’s the second one first. What Conservative Movement? Bush 43 was correct, there’s more than enough evidence to conclude there is no genuine Conservative Movement in America today; […]

Judge Napolitano: Do we have a constitution?

ConstitutionDayPic

Do we have a constitution anymore? Can the republic be restored? Judge Andrew Napolitano and Utah Senator Mike Lee examine this topic in the below video. Please take a few minutes and watch it. Mark Levin says we are living in a “post constitution” period in America. Conservative talk show host Mike Church believes our constitution is dead and that we need to get over it.  The other day I was listening toAndrew Wilkow and he made the case that DUI checkpoints which is now commonplace in America are 100 percent unconstitutional.  Think about it, every time law enforcement set these checkpoints up to randomly pull over cars and subject […]

Look Out Uncle Sam!!!

Viral video

Remember the video the left made about gramma being pushed over a cliff by the conservatives? That video was played up by the MSM and went viral in the liberal blogoshere. The video below was made in response but it will receive no attention from the MSM. Help make this video go viral as well. A big Hat Tip to Bunkerville for finding this. Original Post:  Conservatives on Fire

Profiles in Useful Idiocy: Mitt Romney Espouses the Big Lie

I’ve been openly critical of Mitt Romney as a POTUS candidate.  From his creation of RomneyCare, to his waffling on the issues, I believe that he is a RINO who will talk a good game to get elected, but will govern as a “Republicrat.”  For more evidence on that assertion, I offer you this from the Daily Caller… Liberal Al Gore took to his blog Wednesday to applaud the former Massachusetts governor for his stance on climate change. “Good for Mitt Romney,” Gore, the former Democratic vice president, wrote about the Republican seeking the White House in 2012. He continued: “While other Republicans are running from the truth, […]

Evidence of Democratic Success! Record Number Enroll in Government Anti-poverty Programs!

welfare_work_hard

One measure of success for Democrats is the number of people that they have helped save from starvation and poverty. It is a worthy measure of whether a policy is successful or not, and Obama, Peters, and all the other Democrats often campaign about how hard they have worked to expand the ‘safety net’ and ‘feed the starving masses.’ In their speeches they talk about how they are setting a goal for themselves of getting as many people who need help into the right government programs. And on their watch, under the Democratic Congress and a Democratic President, they have been successful […]

Pat Dollard’s “Young Americans” Debuts at Big Hollywood

Here’s a cross post from Feed Your ADHD.  Snarky Basterd wanted me to re-post, so here it is. If you thought the tiny glimpse of the Iraq War you were allowed to see all those years through the polished prisms of pretty-boy liberal-run cable TV was real … get ready to have your ass blown up by an IED. Pat Dollard, who’s gracious enough to lower his standards and let your insane narrator have a weekly spot on his site, PatDollard.com, had his tenacious and riveting and truly ground-breaking Young Americans video series debut yesterday at Big Hollywood. It’s the […]

Another Example of What Reagan Knew

Thank goodness for YouTube.  There is a lot of archived material there; like these comments from President Reagan… Many of us have been talking about these very ideas.  I think Reagan’s observations and suggestions are just as wise now as they were then. However, have we held up our end of the bargain?  Reagan speaks of “informed patriotism.”  Have we worked at spreading that?  I think yes, but only more recently have we begun in the volume needed to make any changes.  I fear that we have not come even remotely close to achieving “informed patriotism” among the people. Through […]
