Boys' Night Out for Obama, Cameron cost taxpayers at least $365K...

Afghan Taliban Vow to Behead U.S. Soldiers, Obama Flies Off to Watch Basketball

Dining on NY strips and truffles, Biden tells $10K-a-plate donors GOP doesn't get 'average folks'...

CBO NEARLY DOUBLES OBAMACARE ESTIMATE...

$1.76 TRILLION OVER 10 YEARS!

FLASHBACK: Obama pledges legislation will cost 'around $900 billion over 10 years'...

 Finding out what's in it: Abortion coverage in Obamacare - Pundit and Pundette 
 I don't think the majority of Americans are going to be pleased with this. They may or may not be okay with abortion, but do they really want the blood on their own hands, per order of the federal government? Isn't there a law against that? But the Obama administration is betting they won't really mind. God knows he doesn't. Nor does his henchwoman Kathleen Sebelius.

So it should come as no surprise to see what's turned up in Obamacare: Obama Admin Finalizes Rules: $1 Abortions in ObamaCare

The liberals are planning a PR push to promote ObamaCare while arguments are being heard in the Supreme Court.

 Coming Soon: The Commercials that Obama Fears - The American Thinker  
President Obama knows that every public statement he makes is recorded and lives forever on the internet. That is cause for serious worry. The best campaign ad to run against Obama is one that uses his own words -- and those of the officials he has empowered -- against him. When it comes to high gasoline prices, this is a target-rich environment.
Two new polls show that Americans' opinion of Barack Obama has taken a dive. The Washington Post headline "Gas Prices sink Obama's ratings on economy" zeroes in on the impact of high gas prices on his political prospects. A New York Times/CBS poll released the same day shows a similar dramatic decline and states that Obama is heading into the general election on "treacherous political ground" and also chalks up at least part of the decline to much higher prices at the pump over the last few months. High gas prices are a particular vulnerability of Obama's since they affect so many people so many times a week -- especially in those battleground states where people are forced to drive long distances. Each of those signs is free advertising for the Republicans. They can't be explained away by Barack Obama's friends in the media.

 Liberal intolerance, by the numbers
At last we have statistical evidence that liberals are less tolerant of views that disagree with theirs than are conservatives.  Andrew Malcolm of Investor's Business Daily points us to the data, found in a Pew Center for the Internet and American Life Project study.
The new research found that instead of engaging in civil discourse or debate, fully 16% of liberals admitted to blocking, unfriending or overtly hiding someone on a social networking site because that person expressed views they disagreed with. That's double the percentage of conservatives and more than twice the percentage of political moderates who behaved like that.
The proportion jumps even higher when someone on a social site disagrees with a liberal's post.
Only 1% of moderates would block or shut out someone who dared to disagree with them, compared to 11% of liberals, whose rate was nearly three times that of conservatives.
The same 11% of liberals would block or unfriend people who offended them by daring to argue about political issues, vs 6% and 7% for other political views.
Liberals (14%) even blocked or shut out those they deemed posted too frequently on politics, vs 8% and 9% for moderates and conservatives, respectively.
The delightful title of the piece sums it all up: "Online, liberals far less tolerant than normal people"

 California Tax Revenues fall by 22% - American and Proud 
Spectrum Locations Consultants recorded 254 California companies moved some or all of their work and jobs out of state in 2011, 26% more than in 2010 and five times as many as in 2009. According SLC President, Joe Vranich: the “top ten reasons companies are leaving California:

1) Poor rankings in surveys

2) More adversarial toward business

3) Uncontrollable public spending

4) Unfriendly business climate

5) Provable savings elsewhere

6) Most expensive business locations

7) Unfriendly legal environment for business

8) Worst regulatory burden

9) Severe tax treatment

10) Unprecedented energy costs.

Caught on Tape: Dead People and Clones Offered Ballots in Vermont Primary

Arab Muslim Gas Station Owners v. Black Customers: The Real Story Behind the Killing “Over Condoms” - Debbie Schlussel
 Much has been made over a shooting by a Detroit gas station clerk who murdered a Black customer who complained about the price of condoms he’d just bought.  People are making this out to be a story about Black Detroiters risking their lives over the price of condoms.  And while that is certainly part of the story, the real story here is the pattern of Arab violence–primarily Muslim Arab violence–against Black customers at gas stations in the Detroit area. It’s something I’ve been writing about and documenting since 1999.  Arab Muslim gas station owners in the Detroit area have kidnapped Black customers, refused to allow them to use the bathroom, and even murdered them in front of their children. It’s all part of the racism against Blacks inherent in Islam.
