How's that Obamacare working for ya? The Liberal media is touting the BIG news that 1 million people have signed up for Obamacare. One million. Woopee! But didn't they tell us 30, 40, 50 million (depending on who's reporting) had no insurance? Sooo, why haven't 30, 40, 50 million signed up? If their lives were so devastated, so unmanageable, so deprived without insurance that the government had to take over the entire healthcare system to make sure these poor sad people had insurance……why haven't they signed up? And yet 5 million people who had insurance have lost their insurance. Sooo, more people have lost their insurance under Obamacare than have signed up. That certainly is something to brag about.
We have a President who was named for the "Biggest Lie of the Year". A recent Congressional hearing found Obama was acting as an Imperial President. He says if Congress won't act, he will. He already ignored the fact that Congress voted down both Cap and Trade and the Dream Act and implemented them though Executive Order. The hearing concluded Obama was what the Constitution was designed to prevent, that he has committed at least ten impeachable offenses. Would he still be in office if he were an old, white Republican?
For the fifth year gas hovers around $4 a gallon and unemployment still high. Still no jobs and the few available are mostly part time. Where is the media on this? Crickets. Energy prices going up as coal plants are closed. Keystone pipeline still not being built even though it has passed all environmental regulations. In a country with more natural resources than we can use, we are still dependent on foreign oil bought from countries that hate us. Enriching them so they can fight us. Does that sound like an intelligent plan to you?
Have you noticed what Obama has done to the military? Purging senior military commanders. More than 200 senior commanders have been fired or forced to retire. Do you believe that many were incompetent? Two Generals and an Admiral were relieved of duty during the Benghazi attack. God is also being purged from the military. I can't think of people more in need of God than the military. Chaplains can't say Jesus Christ or God during military services. They can't have a Bible on their desks. They have to perform gay marriages even if they have a religious objection. No nativity scenes on bases. But worse is the change in the rules of engagement. Our soldiers can't shoot unless shot at. Nor can they shoot at any building they think may contain civilians. In the Middle East how do they tell who is a civilian and who isn't? The enemy knows this and takes full advantage of it. Why would we send our boys into combat if we didn't intend to WIN? The casualties under Obama doubled and I have no doubt it is because of these insane rules of engagement.
Common Core is being implemented in our schools. They are data mining and dumbing down our children. Propaganda and political correctness is more important than facts and critical thinking. Classics being replaced by technical manuals. Kids being expelled or suspended for pointing their fingers and saying Bang, bang. Six year old being suspended for kissing a little girl's hand. In some states kids can't bring lunches from home even with a doctor's note. We need to sign a permission slip for our kids to go on a field trip but not to get birth control or abortions. This is standardized government curricula, something we have never wanted.
And now the feelings of transexuals (less than 1% of the population) are more important than the feelings of all the rest of the children. Our school bathrooms and locker rooms must be open to transexuals and they must be allowed to play sports with the sex they identify with. I can't see a problem with that, can you?
The new year also beings the end of plastic bags and cheap light bulbs. Why are we allowing this nonsense? There is absolutely no reason to ban either. There is no global warming. We now have to pay $5 or more for one light bulb when we use to be able to buy 4 for a dollar. And plastic bags? Why? If you are talking about environmentally friendly, it takes seven truck loads of paper bags to replace one truck load of plastic bags. And are they banning the plastic bags for produce? No. Plastic bags are recyclable and reusable. I can carry more plastic bags than paper bags and fit more in my car. I'm not going to carry around "reusable" virus infected bags although this is their goal. I'm mad about this every time I go to the grocery store. This is government overreach and social engineering. Don't pretend for a second there is a valid reason to ban either.
With all the bad news there is a story that makes me very happy. There is a Russian ship stuck in ice at the antarctica. Attempts to free it have been unsuccessful. They are now sending a Chinese icebreaker with a helicopter to air lift the passengers and crew from the ship. Why does this make me happy? The ship is filled with environmentalists who were going to antarctica to verify global warming was melting the ice. LOL! What will it take for these frauds to stop trying to convince us that we are causing global warming? I'm going to enjoy hearing how they spin this one.
We have a big year ahead of us. It is an election year. We MUST take back the Senate and keep the House. We MUST. Obamacare just keeps getting worse and it will continue to. Winning should be easy but Boehner and Rove could grab defeat from the jaws of victory. We can't let that happen. Each and every one of us needs to commit to doing everything we can to win.
