Mass Care Mess, ObamaCare, Lawsuit Against Dems Health Care Bill, The Elite Turn Against Obama, Are You Still A Child At 28? How DC School Choice Was Killed, Pay Yo Damn Taxes White Boy! Sex Act at School Board Meeting! Arizona Lawsuit Links, Crazy Pelosi

The Massachusetts Health-Care 'Train Wreck' - WSJ
The future of ObamaCare is unfolding here: runaway spending, price controls, even limits on care and medical licensing.

President Obama said earlier this year that the health-care bill that Congress passed three months ago is "essentially identical" to the Massachusetts universal coverage plan that then-Gov. Mitt Romney signed into law in 2006. No one but Mr. Romney disagrees.

As events are now unfolding, the Massachusetts plan couldn't be a more damning indictment of ObamaCare. The state's universal health-care prototype is growing more dysfunctional by the day, which is the inevitable result of a health system dominated by politics.

Just when does a child become an adult? - Barking Moonbat Early Warning System

My flippant answer is that liberals never become adults. The crap life throws at you is always someone else’s fault, and someone else’s responsibility.

Case in point: The new Ohio healthcare law:

A new Ohio law says employers offering health insurance must allow employees the opportunity to purchase coverage for their children up to age 28.
Age 28? Do you know what all I had done by age 28? I’d been through 2+ years of college, served 6 years active duty in the US Navy, been honorably discharged, and was currently working at a dance studio where I taught the lady who became my wife. Mom & Dad did not support me at all during those years.

Ditto! By age 28 I had two years of college, first good job at 17 then served 8 years in the military had worked in two career fields successful in each, started a base television station, worked for a four star general, honorably discharged, was married had 3 kids, purchased my first home, started a new job starting a new department. This is a joke; I mean seriously folks talk about raising a generation of worthless useless folks. The future does not look too bright.

Obama Heads To K.C. and Las Vegas, Searching For Whose Ass To Kick - Stop The ACLU

It would probably be very wrong to compare Obama’s notion that he would focus like a laser on jobs and the economy, as well as never rest till the BP spill is fixed to O.J. Simpson’s promise to never rest till the real killer was found, so, I won’t do that. Even though Obama has played golf 8 times since the spill started (though, I will personally give him a small pass for the July 4th outing, though, since it was his daughters birthday, he could have stayed around the house), and played around 41 or so rounds since taking over as POTUS. Apparently, he has been looking for the real economy killer on the links, which is good for all Americans, or something. Oh, and on the campaign trail

President Obama and Vice President Biden are both on the campaign trail today, boosting a lucky group of four candidates between them. Obama will attend two Kansas City fundraisers for Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan’s Senate campaign before heading to Las Vegas for two events at the Aria Resort and Casino with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

The Rout of Obamanomics - The American Spectator

There was President Obama in a highly revealing speech on June 30 in Racine, Wisconsin, congratulating himself for having saved America from another Great Depression. He said, "Now every economist who has looked at it has said that the Recovery Act [stimulus bill] did its job," starting a passage that will soon be memorialized as another chapter in Aesop's Fables. As Obama said those words, on the very same day in the Wall Street Journal was a commentary by Allan Meltzer, Professor of Economics at Carnegie Mellon University, entitled, "Why Obamanomics Has Failed." Maybe Obama just hadn't read the Journal yet that day.

But Obama continued in Racine, "[The stimulus bill] put a brake on the collapse of the economy. We avoided a Great Depression. We are now growing again." (Emphasis added.)

Instead of avoiding a Great Depression, however, President Obama is leading us into one. The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) scores the recession as officially starting in December, 2007. Now 31 months later, with unemployment still near 10% and the work force still declining, NBER says it still cannot determine an official end to the recession. The longest recession since World War II previously has been 16 months, with the average being 10 months. By next month, the period since the last recession started will be twice as long as the previous postwar recession record.

Shocker: Yet another Obama “green economy” fail - Hot Air

A White House-backed effort to encourage home-energy improvements was dealt a blow Tuesday after a federal regulator said the program posed significant risks to mortgage lenders and investors.
The Federal Housing Finance Agency, which regulates Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, suggested the mortgage finance titans should avoid participating in the program or should tighten their lending standards where the initiative moves forward.

The move could effectively torpedo the fledgling program that lets homeowners borrow money from their local governments to finance the high upfront costs of energy-efficient upgrades, like solar panels or efficient furnaces.

City and state leaders say the decision could put at risk a program they had hoped would boost jobs and conservation efforts.

How the teachers’ union killed D.C. school choice - Michelle Malkin

In a nutshell, the teacher unions bought off politicians to kill a program that improved the fortunes of thousands of the poorest kids in DC:

-The program saved taxpayers millions of dollars

-Rigorous studies by the Department of Education showed the program was a huge success, improving academic performance as well as the chance that kids would graduate

-Parents loved it: Four applications were filled out for every spot available

-The teachers unions bought off politicians to help themselves at the expense of thousands of the poorest kids in DC

-If the politicians that exercise school choice themselves voted to save this school choice program, it would have been saved

-90 percent of the kids forced out of the program were reassigned to failing public schools

Race hustlers demand Feds impose property tax hike on white people in St. Helena Parish, Louisiana

St. Helena Parish is over half black. When the schools were forcibly desegregated by the Federal government they went to hell. Today the schools are 93%-99% black, with most of the whites sending their children to private schools.

The public schools already receive more money per pupil than the state average. They get $9,147 and the state average is $8,909. It is safe to say that a large majority of the property tax money funding the public schools is coming from white people. These white people must then pay private school tuition for their own children.

A levy for the local schools has failed four times. Now the school board has filed a lawsuit in Federal court asking a judge to force the county to raise property tax.

The attorney for the school Nelson Taylor has openly admitted that the moved is aimed at making white people pay more money for services going almost solely to blacks. “The white community not only abandoned the public school system physically, it withdrew its financial support as well,” says Nelson.

Just When You Thought You Couldn’t Be Prouder of Detroit- Michelle Malkin (Doug Powers)

You might remember Detroit School Board President Otis Mathis as the one with a severe problem with literacy (see: Detroyt Skool Bored Prezzident cant reed, rite or spel goode), but it never occurred to me to think that the reason Mathis’ emails were misspelled so badly might have been because he was typing with one hand:

DPS police were investigating allegations by schools Superintendent Teresa Gueyser that during a meeting at about 5 p.m. Wednesday, Mathis touched himself for 20 minutes, then unzipped his pants.

Gueyser, in a memorandum to the board, said she ended the meeting.

“I told him that there was no reason for us to continue the meeting with that behavior,” she said.

Gueyser said the incident was the culmination of a long history of inappropriate behavior.

Crazy Pelosi: “Unemployment checks are creating jobs”

You folks may have seen this already, I forgot to post... Still deny that Democrats are retards?

I think Pelosi, who I do not care for, was trying to say that unemployment checks are probably spent and not socked away. That is more money which is getting into the economy which would have never been spent if not provided by the government.

Pelosi is a traitor to the leftist cause when she refused to allow impeachment proceedings against Bush II.

She is linked to the imperialist government through her husband. Another example of the corrupt two-party system.
