What the hell am I thinking.....

.........I should love Obamacare. It's the best thing to happen to my business since the earned income credit came to being.

But don't take my word for it. Take H&R Block's...........

Nothing says quality health care like talking to your neighborhood tax professional.

Charlestown - Forced Busing

It's become popular to accuse republicans of being racists since they object so vehemently to the sitting president.

But seriously, the most racist attacks in this country's history came from democrats.

Watch this video of Boston busing riots in the 1970's. This area has probably voted democrat since the beginning of time.

Life in "Progress" State - CA edition

California has been the source of much innovation, from agribusiness and oil to fashion and the digital world. Historically much richer than the rest of the country, it was also the birthplace, along with Levittown, of the mass-produced suburb, freeways, much of our modern entrepreneurial culture, and of course mass entertainment. For most of a century, for both better and worse, California has defined progress, not only for America but for the world.

So how's all that "progress" working out? It doesn't sound much like "progress" to me.............

As late as the 80s, California was democratic in a fundamental sense, a place for outsiders and, increasingly, immigrants—roughly 60 percent of the population was considered middle class. Now, instead of a land of opportunity, California has become increasingly feudal. According to recent census estimates,  the state suffers some of the highest levels of inequality in the country. By some estimates, the state’s level of inequality compares with that of such global models as  the Dominican Republic, Gambia, and the Republic of the Congo.

At the same time, the Golden State now suffers the highest level of poverty in the country—23.5 percent compared to 16 percent nationally—worse than long-term hard luck cases like Mississippi. It is also now home to roughly one-third of the nation’s welfare recipients, almost three times its proportion of the nation’s population.

Like medieval serfs, increasing numbers of Californians are downwardly mobile, and doing worse than their parents: native born Latinos actually have shorter lifespans than their parents, according to one recent report. Nor are things expected to get better any time soon. According to a recent Hoover Institution survey, most Californians expect their incomes to stagnate in the coming six months, a sense widely shared among the young, whites, Latinos, females, and the less educated.

Some of these trends can be found nationwide, but they have become pronounced and are metastasizing more quickly in the Golden State. As late as the 80s, the state was about as egalitarian as the rest of the country. Now, for the first time in decades, the middle class is a minority, according to the Public Policy Institute of California.


Conservatism - Saving liberals from themelves

The one thing that sucks most about being a conservative is that most of what we believe benefits liberals more than ourselves.

For instance, forget about the unintended consequences of Obamacare, how about the in your face law of supply and demand, gravity type truth people were predicting about Obamacare before it even became law......

People like Marilynn Gray-Raine.

The 64-year-old Danville artist, who survived breast cancer, has purchased health insurance for herself for decades. She watched her Anthem Blue Cross monthly premiums rise from $317 in 2005 to $1,298 in 2013. But she found out last week from the Covered California site that her payments will drop to about $795 a month.

But people with no pre-existing conditions like Vinson, a 60-year-old retired teacher, and Waschura, a 52-year-old self-employed engineer, are making up the difference.

"I was laughing at Boehner -- until the mail came today," 

Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare.
"I really don't like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family's pocket each year, that's otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy."

Both Vinson and Waschura have adjusted gross incomes greater than four times the federal poverty level -- the cutoff for a tax credit. And while both said they anticipated their rates would go up, they didn't realize they would rise so much.

 "Of course, I want people to have health care," Vinson said. "I just didn't realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally."

No shit Sherlock. How do liberals get off thinking they're smarter than conservatives when they can't even make this small step ion logic?


Seems like a perfect solution

So Bob Geldof a member of the Branch Gorevidian church of Manmade Global Warming believes the human faith will reach its demise.................

Bob Geldof has claimed that the Earth as we know it could end by 2030 thanks to the ravages of climate change.
The campaigner and former Boomtown Rats singer said the human race could soon be extinct at the One Young World summit in Johannesburg.

"The world can decide in a fit of madness to kill itself," he said, according to the Telegraph. "Sometimes progress may not be possible."

"We're in a very fraught time," he continued, warning the 8,000 international delegates: "There will be a mass extinction event. That could happen on your watch. The signs are that it will happen and soon."

The conference – a networking and debate event for young people from 190 countries – featured speeches from high profile 'counsellors'. Former UN General Secretary Kofi Annan and business mogul Richard Branson also took to the stage, but none appeared to match Mr Geldof for urgency.

This is the thing that blows my mind about your average Branch Gorevidian is that they cannot seem to appreciate the meaning of what they think is true regarding the future.

For instance, let's assume that the global warming continues to the point that the human race is wiped out. If that is true, then wouldn't it be safe to assume that with no humans on earth there won't be anyone to drive those disgusting SUVs on the road or run those carbon spewing coal plants around the world.

If there's no one around to kick out the carbon, the world will begin healing itself. And without humans, the dolphins will be able to have the whole place to themselves.

And isn't that a great place to be?


Who did he vote for? #610

Meet Reggie Chance.

Why is Reggie in the news?

A defiant motorcyclist caught on video smashing an SUV window with his helmet after a wild chase in upper Manhattan gave the middle finger to reporters in court Sunday.

Reginald (Reggie) Chance, 37, was in Manhattan Criminal Court facing assault and gang assault charges in the brutal beating of Alexian Lien when he flipped off reporters with both middle fingers moments before he appeared in front of a judge.

Chance is the rider wearing a black leather jacket, in the viral video of the Sept. 29 chase, who violently smashes the driver’s window with his helmet, the criminal complaint alleges.

So in the last election, was this guy a Romney or an Obama supporter?

Day 5 of the apocalypse

So yesterday was another non eventful day without non-essential government services.

I was able to hit the gym, run my honey-do list without interference, and eat a nice meal with a good bottle of wine.

All without having to whip out a cross bow to catch my game.
