PARMA, Ohio – With less than an hour before President Obama’s scheduled speech, 75 seats remained empty in the recreation center at Cuyahoga Community College’s Western Campus.
So organizers went around campus and recruited more students to fill the seats. -http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2010/09/tri-c_students_recruited_to_fi.html
Pathological Liar Obama Now Claims Father (Who Was 9) Fought In WWII. Expect MSM To Jump On This… Not.
I hope FoNews asks Gibbs about it at the new WH Presser. It would be fun to watch him try to explain this one.
It just amazes me that this fool gets away with this sort of crap. We can’t even expect the MSM to call him out on the most pathetic and transparent lies.
When the Manchurian Moonbat’s mouth is in gear, the preposterous lies just don’t stop. Here he is claiming that his father served in World War II:
The Kenyan communist Barack Obama Senior, born in 1936, was 9 years old when WWII ended.Obama lies about father serving in WWII
Maybe Barry meant his adoptive father, Lolo Soetoro. But the Indonesian Soetoro was 10 years old when WWII ended.
Some say that the reason Obama has spent a fortune to keep his birth certificate from the public is that his actual father was his childhood mentor, the communist, rapist, and potential enemy agent Frank Marshall Davis. Born in 1905, Davis was plenty old enough for WWII. But he never in a million years would have fought for this country, any more than Obama would.
We can only conclude that Comrade Obama was actually referring to his uncle, who supposedly helped liberate Auschwitz and therefore must have fought in the Soviet Red Army.
Incredibly, there are still people foolish enough to believe anything that comes out of this clown’s mouth.
Or not… 71% of Missouri disagrees.
Let me repeat that. 71% of Missouri votes to stop Obamacare. 71% of Missouri told Obama to get bent!
It looks like Missouri made it perfectly clear:
- WE HATE OBAMACARE
- Republicans are a lot more fired up than Democrats
- November is going to SUCK for Dems if Republicans come out to vote 2-1 like they did for this vote.
Thank you Missouri. We are glad you stepped up and said “WE ARE NOT A SOCIALIST NATION”. And the rest of you, look at this and realize that we need to win in November.
One meme had materialized over the last couple of weeks that ObamaCare had begun to get more popular with voters. Using a couple of carefully-selected media polls, the White House had started this claim and the press seemed willing to ignore the avalanche of other polling showing that solid majorities favor repeal of the overhaul and the candidates who argue for repeal. That meme died in Missouri, where almost three-quarters of the voters who came to the polls cast votes for a largely symbolic measure repudiating one of ObamaCare’s key provisions:
Missouri voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a federal mandate to purchase health insurance, rebuking President Barack Obama’s administration and giving Republicans their first political victory in a national campaign to overturn the controversial health care law passed by Congress in March.
“The citizens of the Show-Me State don’t want Washington involved in their health care decisions,” said Sen. Jane Cunningham, R-Chesterfield, one of the sponsors of the legislation that put Proposition C on the August ballot. She credited a grass-roots campaign involving Tea Party and patriot groups with building support for the anti-Washington proposition.
With most of the vote counted, Proposition C was winning by a ratio of nearly 3 to 1. The measure, which seeks to exempt Missouri from the insurance mandate in the new health care law, includes a provision that would change how insurance companies that go out of business in Missouri liquidate their assets. …
ObamaCare Already Working To Cut Costs. Like Making Sure Hundreds Of Thousands Of Kids Can’t Get Insurance.
Obama’s need to make sure that we all live in his version of Socialism fails once again.
See, ObamaCare requires that an insurance company that offers individual health care for children provide it as soon as a kid is sick. No questions, no choices, no caps, no limits. So, when a child comes down with some horrible disease and his parents didn’t have them covered, ObamaCare will step in and pay for it, right? Of course not. The insurance companies are required to pick them up at the same cost as a healthy kid and suck it up.
Well, they are looking at those odds and came up with a solution: Stop offering individual plans for kids.
Nice job, Obama.
I know, you lefties out there are saying “well that’s cruel and wrong”. No it’s not, you morons. Insurance is a bet. You place a bet with the insurance company that you will not get sick. The insurance company bets you will stay healthy or at least well enough that they will come out ahead. ObamaCare stacks the deck. Imagine going to a blackjack table where the dealer gets to pick out an ace and a jack for himself before the hand starts. Would you play?
ObamaCare goes after the one group that has the knowledge and ability to run healthcare and destroys them while protecting groups that make a MUCH higher profit margin, like pharmaceutical companies and does it while ignoring every consequence of its own actions.
Barack Obama has been mighty keen on rolling out the most positive aspects of ObamaCare first in order to protect vulnerable Democrats facing voters angry over the bill’s passage. One of the big wins for Obama in the bill was the mandate for insurers to allow parents to carry their kids on policies until their 26th birthday. However, that intervention has created a rather perverse set of incentives that will see fewer children insured:
Some major health insurance companies have stopped issuing certain types of policies for children, an unintended consequence of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law, state officials said Friday.
Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty said in his state UnitedHealthcare and Blue Cross Blue Shield have stopped issuing new policies that cover children individually. Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner Kim Holland said a couple of local insurers in her state have done likewise. …
The major types of coverage for children — employer plans and government programs — are not be affected by the disruption. But a subset of policies — those that cover children as individuals — may run into problems. Even so, insurers are not canceling children’s coverage already issued, but refusing to write new policies.
Of course the NAACP won’t say anything, because it was women and minority owned dealerships that were protected when Obama’s Government Motors started closing dealerships. Welcome to the real racism in the US.
Racism, promoted and pushed by the Obama administration and his friends.
The difference between private-sector decisions on business consolidation and those under government supervision gets exposed in a portion of Neil Barofsky’s audit of the government-driven closures of GM and Chrysler auto dealerships during the $62 billion bailout. There may be a question of whether the automakers needed to consolidate in order to shed poorly performing dealerships at all, but we’ll get back to that. The plan to consolidate dealerships that resulted from the push by the car czar and TARP used rational, objective measures to select the target outlets. In practice, those often got ignored in favor of politics, according to the audit:
GM determined that dealerships with a DPS Score of 100 were average performers; those below 70 were considered poor performers and would not be retained. SIGTARP noted, however, that GM did not uniformly apply the phase one criteria to the entire network. For example, our analysis found that two of the wind-down dealers did not meet either criterion. Furthermore, we found that, of the dealerships that met only one of the two criteria:
GM retained 355 (or approximately 41 percent) of the 858 dealerships that had a DPS score below 70.16
GM retained 9 of the 394 dealerships that sold fewer than 50 new vehicles in 2008.17
An additional 10 dealerships with a DPS score below 70 were in phase two wind-downs.
GM officials attributed these inconsistencies primarily to a desire to maintain coverage in certain rural areas where they have a competitive advantage over import auto companies that are not typically located in rural areas, although ultimately close to half of all of the GM dealerships identified for termination were in rural areas. Other dealerships were retained because they were recently appointed, were key wholesale parts dealers, or were minority- or woman-owned dealerships (emphasis mine).
Hey, It’s Ok If You Knowingly Give Someone A Fatal Disease. WH Wants You To Be Able To Share Your HIV.
A white paper issued this month by the Obama administration is calling for an end to state laws — including Iowa’s — that make transmission of HIV a crime.
“In many instances, the continued existence and enforcement of these types of laws run counter to scientific evidence about routes of HIV transmission and may undermine the public health goals of promoting HIV screening and treatment,” notes the report, which is copied in full below.
“CDC data and other studies, however, tell us that intentional HIV transmission is atypical and uncommon. A recent research study also found that HIV-specific laws do not influence the behavior of people living with HIV in those states where these laws exist.”
Obamunism is getting scary for those of us who rely on the Internet for information. After 73,000 blogs were closed down by Big Government, supposedly for copyright violations, we learn that the actual reason for the shutdown is unknown, as is the identity of the government agency imposing it. From CNET:
Blogetery.com, a little-known WordPress platform used by more than 70,000 blogs, was shut down by its Web hosting company more than a week ago and nobody seems willing to say why or who is responsible.
BurstNet, the Web-hosting company, informed Blogetery’s operator that service was terminated at the request of some law enforcement agency but wouldn’t say which one. As for the reason, BurstNet hasn’t made that clear either. In an e-mail to Blogetery’s operator, BurstNet managers did say that they had little choice but to terminate service.
JobKiller Obama’s Offshore Drilling Moratorium May Damage Economy More Than The Spill. Billions Of Dollars And Thousands Of Jobs.
The presidential offshore drilling moratorium will cost approximately US $2.1 billion in economic loss to the states along the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) in first six months, according to a recently released paper.
“The Economic Cost of a Moratorium on the Offshore Oil and Gas Exploration to the Gulf Region” was written by Dr. Joseph R. Mason, Louisiana State University endowed chair of banking and renowned economist. Mason said he estimates the moratorium will see a loss of 8,000 jobs and $500 million in lost wages in the Gulf Coast in the first six months.
“The moratorium will cost the Gulf Coast region jobs, money, and economic development,” he said. “In fact, the moratorium could be more costly than the oil spill itself.”
Remember all those promises President Obama made assuring Americans that they’d be able to keep their current healthcare plans under reform legislation he was championing?
Well, the New York Times reported Sunday that could come at a huge additional cost to many that may be impractical.
Much more surprising is the Times pointed out that this wasn’t what Obama promised.
Although none of the following will shock those intelligent enough to see through the bait and switch as it was occurring, those in the media that aided and abetted this scam should be deeply ashamed:
As the Obama administration begins to enact the new national health care law, the country’s biggest insurers are promoting affordable plans with reduced premiums that require participants to use a narrower selection of doctors or hospitals.
The plans, being tested in places like San Diego, New York and Chicago, are likely to appeal especially to small businesses that already provide insurance to their employees, but are concerned about the ever-spiraling cost of coverage.
But large employers, as well, are starting to show some interest, and insurers and consultants expect that, over time, businesses of all sizes will gravitate toward these plans in an effort to cut costs.
The tradeoff, they say, is that more Americans will be asked to pay higher prices for the privilege of choosing or keeping their own doctors if they are outside the new networks. That could come as a surprise to many who remember the repeated assurances from President Obama and other officials that consumers would retain a variety of health-care choices.
