Dude, where’s my exemption? 90% of the uninsured are now exempt from Obamacare penalties

It seems like everybody is exempt from Obamacare, except me. Today comes the breathtaking news that 90% of the remaining uninsured are exempt from paying the individual mandate tax penalty. Almost 90% of the nation’s 30 million uninsured won’t pay a penalty under the Affordable Care Act in 2016 because of a growing batch of exemptions to the health-coverage requirement. The architects of the health law wanted most Americans to carry insurance or pay a penalty. But an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation said most of the uninsured will qualify for one or […]

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, […]

How To Fight The Democrat Rhetoric On Illegal Immigration By Using The Truth

Would you care to venture a guess about what I find so interesting, possibly even humorous, about the conversation that is constantly going on between liberals and conservatives? While you are pondering that question, I’ll give you a hint. Facts are strange things. They usually pop up on the radar when you least expect them and sometimes, when you least need them to appear. Especially if your side of the conversation is used to playing fast and loose with the facts that supposedly support your argument. Facts are apt to rise up and slap you down, making you and your […]

Pelosi Loses it on House Floor, Chases Republican Tom Marino: Must See Video – UPDATED

Nancy Pelosi Chasing Tom Marino Across House Floor – DURING House Session Hat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network & ABC News. During an open session on the House Floor, Tom Marino (R-PA) evidently struck a nerve with former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, causing her to literally chase him across the chamber floor. In debating the border crisis issue, Rep. Marino (R-PA), pointed out the obvious that Democrats had the presidency, and majorities in both the House and Senate, knew about the upcoming border crisis, and chose to do nothing about it.  “Amazing, that they say ‘because the […]

Nancy Pelosi about the Border Chaos: Never Let a Good Crisis Go To Waste

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Yes, this ‘compassionate’ Dem is focusing on how to use the chaos on our southern border, rather than on how to best solve the problem and stop the suffering. What ever happened to, “It’s for the children,” Nancy? Via NRO: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) wants Democrats to “use this crisis” on the border to pass comprehensive immigration legislation — just as immigration hawks fear they’ll do. “The most important thing that we can do to use this crisis as an opportunity is to pass comprehensive immigration reform,” Pelosi told reporters in Texas while discussing […]

Happy Days Are Gone Again

There is a grave threat in the White House.  If he is not thrown out or otherwise constrained in the near future, national security will inevitably become a top priority for Americans, forced by tragedy, not just to give up “piña coladas and getting caught in the rain,” but to survive a Dark Age into which their president led them. (No Mr. President, You are the ‘Serious Threat to Everybody’s Future’) “I think this is an administration that, we’re coming to find out, is one of almost unimaginable incompetence…” – Brit Hume “Obama is not worse than we thought. Liberals […]

We Miss You, Dutch.

The Gipper died ten years ago yesterday, and he left himself quite a legacy. All GOP presidential hopefuls since have measured themselves by his yardstick and all the Democratic hopefuls have twisted his legacy, some even comparing themselves to him! Here are a few quick facts that the lefties cannot dispute, followed by a hilarious video that so aptly illustrates what those on the left just can’t fathom. Reagan Results: Number of American taxpayers who claimed more than $1 million in income in 1980: 4,400 Number of American taxpayers who claimed more than $1 million in income in 1987: 35,000 […]

The Koch Brothers are EVIL!! We NEED your money!!

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Obama, Biden, Pelosi Badgering Supporters With Endless Fundraising Emails Because of The Koch Brothers… The number of breathless emails sent by Dems is mind-boggling, I’ve received at least 15 over the last two days. Via DCCC email: President Obama sent you an email. Vice President Biden sent you an email. Nancy Pelosi sent you an email. Now I’m sending you an email. We’re emailing you because this is really important: The Kochs have unleashed a plan to spend $125 million against Democrats in this election. If we’re going to stand up to that onslaught, it’s […]

The Debt Limit Debate as Seen Through Groundhog Day Glasses

We all remember Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, the movie where one day in history just kept repeating itself. Well let’s look at the Debt Limit debate through the prism of Groundhog Day:    

Who Brought Down the Deficit? (Hint: Their initials are TP)

In his first year in office, President Obama gave us the insanely huge, unprecedented deficit of $1.3 TRILLION. Oh he tried to blame it on his predecessor, George W. Bush (a mantra he’s since perfected), but the stark truth is that he and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and then Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi all conspired to throw mountains of debt onto the backs of taxpaying American citizens. A budget deficit of nearly half a trillion dollars is hardly something to cheer about, but the big decline in federal red ink as a share of our national output […]

Boehner & Establishment GOP Declare War on the Tea Party

“I have made it clear that I have great respect for the tea party and the energy they brought to the electoral process,” said Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R) Ohio to reporters in February of this year. Then, in a statement that more resembled his famed crying incidents, he went on to whine, “My gripe is with some Washington organizations who feel like they’ve got to go raise money by beating on me and others.” That’s what politics is all about, I thought. But it seems the establishment GOP takes offense to being reminded that their constituencies would […]

Married Without Children

“I would say, you know, if you’re getting married — why are you getting married? Why would you get married? Why would anybody get married?” – Nancy Pelosi Why, indeed?  Of course, San Francy’s all for the institution as long as it’s between a pair of homosexuals, people that have no need for it — in America, they’re already free to shack up at will.  If marriage is fundamentally a societal framework designed primarily for the propagation and protection of the offspring it produces, then support for same-sex nuptials is revealed for what it is: a radical attack on accepted […]

Catchphrase For Communists: Economic Violence

Pelosi: We Must “End This Economic Violence” (Weasel Zippers) #EconomicViolence started as a way for some on the Left to complain about, well, capitalism basically. – Twitchy “Nancy Pelosi wants to fight economic violence? Maybe she should start by getting Democrats to resign.” — The Daley Gator If there’s one thing at which our domestic enemies excel, it’s in coining inane slogans for the progressive Hive to murmur endlessly.  Designed to replace rational thought with bumper-sticker dementia, the socialists Democrats unveil a new one every few months, usually timed to coincide with the latest assault on our liberties.  Who could […]

In Nancy Pelosi’s Bible, Satan Wins!

Nancy Pelosi sure has some rather odd things to say.  Maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but based on Pelosi’s comments, I have to wonder whose side she is really on.  Actually, I have no doubt!  I caught this over at the Independent Sentinel… She invents Bible verses too. She said this but it’s nowhere to be found in the Bible. “The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.’ On this Earth Day, and […]

The State of the Union? It Sucks!

Nancy Pelosi recently said “It is almost a false argument to say that we have a spending problem.” She went on to say that what we have is a deficit problem.  Conservatives have given Ms. Pelosi a lot of flack over her statement and maybe we have been too hard on the less than brilliant Congressman from San Francisco. After all she did use a qualifier; “almost”, which can mean “not quite”. And, she was spot on when she said the US has a deficit problem. Who could argue with that? By saying that we have a deficit problem instead […]

Rhinovirus Devastates Republicans

Several Republicans on Capitol Hill have fallen ill with the Rhinovirus, it has been learned.  Lindsey Graham, John McCain, John Boehner among other prominent Republicans are among those affected by the pernicious virus. “It is flu season” said a Washington D.C. doctor treating the Republican lawmakers. Still at the very least one would think that these men would be more careful.  They are busy, important men with constituencies to take care of.  But once they get infected with the Rhinovirus they are pretty much useless. Congressman Graham was the first to come ill, complaining of a runny nose and a […]

Hey Smokers, Look at How ObamaCare Might Jack up Your Premiums!

As you all recall, Nancy Pelosi told the House that they had to pass ObamaCare to see what is in it.  So, they passed it, and within the tangled web of lies, deceit and failure, there is a poison pill for those that are smokers. Our good friend at Wyblog has the info… Hey smokers, has anyone told you about Obamacare’s 50% insurance premium surcharge yet? Starting next year health insurers can charge smokers 50% more. Millions of smokers could be priced out of health insurance because of tobacco penalties in President Barack Obama’s health care law, according to experts […]

Nothing Fair About Media’s Foul Play

The mainstream media, or more accurately Barack Obama’s Propaganda Corps, has abandoned all pretense to journalistic integrity in order to ensure the re-election of their skinny Marxist hero. Murders? Intelligence failures? Riots? Wars? Hah! The only news fit to print these days is whatever can be spun to cast discredit on Gentleman Mitt Romney, such as Romney’s entirely accurate statement regarding the 47% of cast-iron dependents … uh, voters … thought to reside in Obama’s left pocket, a private remark serendipitouslyprovided to the radical rag Mother Jones by none other than Jimmy Carter IV, grandson of the former worst president in the history of the Republic. If […]

Americans Applaud End of Freedom!

By an overwhelming vote that crossed partisan lines, congress today voted to end all freedom of choice for all Americans for everything. “It is time we realize that freedom is not absolute” declared Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-NV).  “People are using their freedoms to make wrong choices.  The wrong foods to eat.  The wrong recreational drugs to use.  The wrong sexual positions to enjoy.  These decisions are too important to be left to the people.  This is where the government steps in.” “There is an epidemic in America today” declared Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).  “It is an epidemic of unhealthy wellness choices.” “We […]

Useful Idiot of the Year Poll: 2011

It’s been a great honor for me to bring you the Useful Idiot of the Month Poll.  Since March of 2009, we have been taking the Useful Idiot of the Month Poll (with a few exceptions).  And now, it is time to elect the Useful Idiot of the Year for 2011.  Many nominations were made by the readers.  Here they are, in the order in which they were received. 1.  President Barak Hussein Obama:  By The Amusing Bunni, and Steve Dennis of America’s Watchtower, and Harry of To be Right. 2.  The Occupy Movement: by LD Jackson of Political Realities, Teresa, of […]
