  1. Re: Obamacare…….Can’t the Congress investigate the promises made to get this pig to become law and compare them to reality? The SEC would be all over someone who defrauded investors. Ultimately, since its OUR MONEY, aren’t we the Obamacare Investors?

  2. $8 billion on empty buildings – $17 trillion debt on empty promises and 535 empty heads.

    Haven’t they ever heard of Zillow, Ebay or Craig’s List.

    • Don’t forget the $12 billion high speed rail ‘boondoggle’ from the post last night. Where are all of these unaccounted for billions going? You’ve heard of out-of-pocket expenses? These are into-someone’s-pocket expenses.

  3. Another Version of the News:

    The MSM is pretending to be shocked at the rising costs of healthcare and insurance premiums due to Obamacare mandates as they outline the increases in several states. The Dems have reportedly hired an outside consultant to advise them on how to put the blame on the Repubs for this disasterous monstrosity that will kill their chances of re-election in 2014.

    General Petraeus(Ret), most recently forced to resign as the head of the CIA after it was disclosed that he had disgraced himself by cavorting with a woman not his wife, has apologized to a group of people for some reason not yet known. The General, who finds himself with nothing to do and no one to command, is looking outward for some meaningful reason to get out of bed in the morning.

    In an effort to resuscitate the once stellar reputation of the SecretService, PresObama has named a woman to head the organization. Her mission will be to eliminate the boys-club mentality now prevalent throughout the Service and replace it with a strict code of behaviour.

    Reports that the government spends $8billion dollars on empty buildings are misleading and untrue. Those buildings are being held in wait for the upcoming increase in employment of InternalRevenue agents and staff who will be overseeing the collection of the biggest tax increase in history, Obamacare.

    PresObama plans to pick the pockets of wealthy Dems to further his agenda of raising taxes on the wealthy. Wealthy Americans apparently are ashamed that they have accumulated assets in their lifetime and wish to make amends to the poor by giving extra cash to PresObama who promises to redistrubute it in a “fair and balanced” way.

    DrCarson, who became an overnight sensation for having the courage to speak his mind at a prayer breakfast, has decided that he wants no part of politics after the self-proclaimed anti-racist Dems accused him of being an “uncle tom” (a slur indicating that a Black man should not act “White or be seen talking to people who are not Dems).

    • Re your last paragraph: the Democrats and MSM are trying to nip in the bud the rise of any conservative voice. We’re coming to a watershed of Democratic malfeasance and they are very, very afraid of what’s down the pike. Twenty-one Democrats are up for reelection in the Senate, and that does not include open seats like the one which will be vacated in S.D. (In addition to Carson, I’d like to mention that the MSM have projected that Paul Ryan is over and have made scurrilous personal attacks on Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.)

      I just hope the Republicans don’t blow this great chance, and if they can secure a conservative majority in 2014, Ben Carson will have a smoother path.

      You can be as racist as you wanna be, as long as you have a “D” next to your name. You can be a Klansman like Robert Byrd was, an actor like Alec Baldwin, a Senator like Albert Gore Sr., or even a President like Obama!

      Actually, they have a LOT of history at that that – for some reason – NO ONE ever seems to remember…

      Think of a name from the worst parts of the Civil Rights movement. Bull Conner? Democrat. George Wallace? Democrat. I could go on, but its easier to just refer you to this;

      “* The number of Democratic Party platforms supporting slavery. There were six from 1840 through 1860.

      * The number of Democratic presidents who owned slaves. There were seven from 1800 through 1861

      * The number of Democratic Party platforms that either supported segregation outright or were silent on the subject. There were 20, from 1868 through 1948.

      * “Jim Crow” as in “Jim Crow laws and the role Democrats played in creating them. These were the post-Civil War laws passed enthusiastically by Democrats in that pesky 52-year part of the DNC’s missing years. These laws segregated public schools, public transportation, restaurants, rest rooms and public places in general (everything from water coolers to beaches). The reason Rosa Parks became famous is that she sat in the “whites only” front section of a bus, the “whites only” designation the direct result of Democrats.

      * The formation of the Ku Klux Klan, which, according to Columbia University historian Eric Foner, became “a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party.” Nor is there reference to University of North Carolina historian Allen Trelease’s description of the Klan as the “terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.”

      * Democrats opposed the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The 13th banned slavery. The 14th effectively overturned the infamous 1857 Dred Scott decision (made by Democratic pro-slavery Supreme Court justices) by guaranteeing due process and equal protection to former slaves. The 15th gave black Americans the right to vote.

      * Democrats opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1866. It was passed by the Republican Congress over the veto of President Andrew Johnson, who had been a Democrat before joining Lincoln’s ticket in 1864. The law was designed to provide blacks with the right to own private property, sign contracts, sue and serve as witnesses in a legal proceeding.

      * Democrats’ opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1875. It was passed by a Republican Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses Grant. The law prohibited racial discrimination in public places and public accommodations.

      * Democrats’ 1904 platform, which devotes a section to “Sectional and Racial Agitation,” claiming the GOP’s protests against segregation and the denial of voting rights to blacks sought to “revive the dead and hateful race and sectional animosities in any part of our common country,” which in turn “means confusion, distraction of business, and the reopening of wounds now happily healed.”

      * Four Democratic platforms, 1908-20, that are silent on blacks, segregation, lynching and voting rights as racial problems in the country mount. By contrast the GOP platforms of those years specifically address “Rights of the Negro” (1908), oppose lynching (in 1912, 1920, 1924, and 1928) and, as the New Deal kicks in, speak out about the dangers of making blacks “wards of the state.”

      * Democratic Convention of 1924, known to history as the “Klanbake.” The 103-ballot convention was held in Madison Square Garden. Hundreds of delegates were members of the Ku Klux Klan, the Klan so powerful that a plank condemning Klan violence was defeated outright. To celebrate, the Klan staged a rally with 10,000 hooded Klansmen in a field in New Jersey directly across the Hudson from the site of the convention. Attended by hundreds of cheering convention delegates, the rally featured burning crosses and calls for violence against African-Americans and Catholics.

      * Democrats segregated the federal government, at the direction of President Woodrow Wilson upon taking office in 1913. There \is a reference to the fact that President Harry Truman integrated the military after World War II.

      * Democrats created the Federal Reserve Board, passed labor and child welfare laws, and created Social Security with Wilson’s New Freedom and FDR’s New Deal. There is no mention that these programs were created as the result of an agreement to ignore segregation and the lynching of blacks. Neither is there a reference to the thousands of local officials, state legislators, state governors, U.S. congressmen and U.S. senators who were elected as supporters of slavery and then segregation between 1800 and 1965. Nor is there reference to the deal with the devil that left segregation and lynching as a way of life in return for election support for three post-Civil War Democratic presidents, Grover Cleveland, Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt

      * Three-fourths of the opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Bill in the U.S. House came from Democrats, or that 80% of the “nay” vote in the Senate came from Democrats. Certainly there is no reference to the fact that the opposition included future Democratic Senate leader Robert Byrd of West Virginia (a former Klan member) and Tennessee Senator Albert Gore Sr., father of Vice President Al Gore.

      * In Birmingham, Ala., Public Safety Commissioner Bull Connor, who infamously unleashed dogs and fire hoses on civil rights protestors, was in fact–yes indeed–a member of both the Democratic National Committee and the Ku Klux Klan.

      * The fact that Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower was the first to initiate the legislation which finally passed and was enacted under Democrat Presidents JFK and LBJ), the party of the left has somehow hoodwinked much of the black community into thinking they are its savior. In fact until the passing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act,

      * Martin Luther King was a Republican, re-registering as a Democrat as part of the negotiations, and so were most blacks Republicans (the party of Abraham Lincoln) until that time. Facts like these are part of the reason the Progressives consistently fight to re-write and edit the history that is taught and skew media productions.

      So, be a racist. It’s OK. Just be a Democrat first…

      • That’s a great collection of evidence, cincycinco. Never realized Andrew Jackson was our first ever RINO (a Democrat in Republican clothing). Andrew Jackson has to among the top 10 worst presidents in American history. His policy of manifest destiny and the Indian Removal Act was the impetus for the Indian wars.

    • Also, God Forbid you be Black and step off the liberal plantation? Susan Rice thinks SHE had a race problem? She should check out CONDELEZZA Rice!

      Warning; Awful words and concepts below. I find this abhorrent about anybody, but it’s necessary to make the point that when it’s by Democrats about a Republican, it’s apparently OK…

      ‘Legendary New York talk radio host Bob Grant said Monday that the establishment press has signaled its approval of a racist attack on National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice by failing to condemn or even publicize it.

      “Since the target is a member of the Bush administration, apparently people in the media say, ‘Well, that’s all right,'” Grant told NewsMax during his WOR broadcast.

      The New York talker was responding to a question about the Neil Rogers Show, a Florida radio broadcast that features a song parody describing Rice as “a black-haired answer-mammy who be smart” – who also “parks the whitey’s cars” and “cleans all the White House bathrooms.”

      Performed in an Amos n’ Andy accent to the tune of Nat King Cole’s “Mona Lisa,” some say the lyrics of the Rogers’ Show staple “Condoleezza” are the most vivid display of on-air racism heard anywhere in decades:

      “Condoleezza, Condoleezza, what you be doin’? That neo-facist black-haired token schwarze dog.

      “Is you there ’cause you a high-toned public Negro?
      Is you their black-haired answer-mammy who be smart?
      Does they like how you shine their shoes, Condoleezza?
      Or the way you wash and park the whitey’s cars.

      “Georgie junior says he trusts you, Condoleezza.
      Who said our [unintelligible] off the greedy oil woes.
      But then he make you clean all the White House bathrooms.
      The public sink, the toilet and let’s scrub the floors.” ‘

      Nice, huh? It gets WORSE;

      ‘Ted “Bottom-feeder” Rall is at it again. His latest crude-toon includes a frame depicting Condoleezza Rice proclaiming herself Bush’s “HOUSE NIGGA.” A black man demands that Rice “HAND OVER HER HAIR STRAIGHTENER.” His t-shirt reads “YOU’RE NOT WHITE, STUPID.” The caption below the frame reads “SENT TO INNER-CITY RACIAL RE-EDUCATION CAMP.”’

      There is MUCH worse than THAT out there, though. I won’t even dignify the “Black” sites that savage Ms. Rice worse than ANY Klansman ever could, and all because she wasn’t liberal.

      Ask Clarance Thomas what it’s like to be a non-liberal Black person. Ask Walter Williams. Ask Thomas Sowell, and all HE ever did was actually make economic sense that didn’t agree with the Party line!

      I don’t blame Dr. Carson for not wanting to subject his family to that vileness, even to the point of putting their lives at risk. But that’s why we get Obamas as Presidents, and NOT Dr. Carsons.

  4. Good for Dr. Carson. He said from the beginning that he wouldn’t run for office unless God grabbed him by the collar. Sad that we’re so starved for leadership in this country that he is being pushed for an answer. The RINOs and Democrats would destroy him long before the 2016 election if he made the decision to run now. Dr. Carson can have a greater impact on the sorry state of our culture by speaking out against political correctness and crony capitalism, as well as serving as a role model for our youth.

  5. Four fundraisers in CA to benefit the Dem Congressional election??? A new low! He’s determined to steal the 2014 election and finish the job he started.

  6. “Government spends $8B on empty buildings . . . Washington Times”

    That’s nothing, compared to the TRILLIONS we spent on an empty suit…

  7. How does Obama have the money to fuel AF1 and fly across the country if we don’t even have enough money to keep the WH open? It’s going to be an expensive trip with all the support aircraft, hotels and all. Money that could be used to pay Border Patrol salaries, WH tours and so forth.
