The New Normal?



I’m in Boston right now and of course the news is focused on the bomb threats at Harvard.  Both local and national media are covering this heavily….mostly because it’s Boston and it’s another bomb threat.  But what’s interesting is that as they show students and people on the Harvard campus walking by the TV cameras and carrying on their daily lives, they seemed unconcerned.  In fact, it’s been reported that Harvard students cheered when they were told finals were cancelled for the day.  Cheered?  There’s a bomb threat yet they cheer because college tests are avoided?  Welcome to the new ‘normal.’  Welcome to a world where all that’s paramount is short-term gratification.  It’s a world that most young people – thanks to my ‘Baby Boomer’ generation – only care about what might happen in the next nano-second with no concern for the long term.  A truly abnormal normal.

Harvard Students Applaud Bomb Threat After Final Exams Canceled  To fix this, Heritage has suggested a tax credit or tax deduction that would be the same for everyone. This would help offset the cost of insurance, making it more affordable.

The Harvard Crimson has updates on Twitter and its Website


How to Help Uninsured Americans  To fix this, Heritage has suggested a tax credit or tax deduction that would be the same for everyone. This would help offset the cost of insurance, making it more affordable.

Why Hasn’t Jane Fonda’s $800G Charity Made Any Gifts Since 2006?  Bah Humbug, Hanoi Jane.

IRS Targeting, Round Two  The administration claims this rule is needed to clarify confusing tax laws. Hardly. The rule is the IRS’s new targeting program—only this time systematic, more effective, and with the force of law.  Yeah….those Tea Party groups need more regs but you go, Jane Fonda!!

LOL!  ANC Hires Garrett Morris as Sign Language Interpreter  A White House official applauded the move, saying HHS was looking into hiring Morris as the official sign language interpreter for videos found on the website Healthcare.gov.

Biden Gropes for Way to Knock ObamaCare Off Front Pages  Unfortunately for Biden and the O team, Biden’s latest headline-grabbing antic, no doubt choreographed to drive the ObamaCare news off the front pages, appears to involve grabbing of more than just news headlines.  YIKES!!!!

He's just a 'folksy' kinda guy.....

Watch this when you get the time.  Mike Lee is brilliant.

Barack Should Have Stayed Home


Barry made several mistakes at Mandela’s funeral Tuesday.  First, he was caught taking ‘selfies’  with the British Prime Minister and Denmark’s Prime Minister:  Dear Obama:  Funerals are no Place for Selfies


Wow….the leader of the free world who supposedly admires Mandela as the greatest symbol of freedom in the past century yuks it up at his funeral.  Ever get the feeling that this White House is run by immature children who are prone to hissy fits, inappropriate behavior, and tantrums?  Michelle looks like the only grown-up in the room.  In fact, check this out – she actually ends up sitting between Barry & the blonde!!!  (Shaka to Scott)


Then there’s this: Obama-Castro Handshake Not ‘Pre-Planned’    Considering the above story about Barry’s selfie, I had to LOL at this line:

The moment was not “a pre-planned encounter,” a White House official said. “Above all else, today is about honoring Nelson Mandela, and that was the president’s singular focus at the memorial service. We appreciate that people from all over the world are participating in this ceremony.”

Yeah…..and it took about 20 seconds for the Cuba propaganda machine to use the photo for its advantage.  This wasn’t pre-planned?  Barry jaunts up the stairs and who happens to be there but Raul?  You be the judge:

Great Facebook post from Dennis Miller 🙂


Any wonder that Obama’s approval rating is at 38%?  Keep it up, Barry.  We want the House AND Senate next year.  No Love For Obama as Approval Ratings HIt Record Low  Time to impeach your egotistical, incompetent, childish butt.

ICYMI:  Prize-Winning Journalist – Obama Lied to Start Syria War  (Shaka to Karen) This claim wasn’t made by some no-name conspiracy theorist either; it was made by the reputable, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Seymour Hersh. His accusations stem from multiple conversations with various intelligence and military officials.

ICYMI, Part II:  Obama Admits He LIed About Uncle Onyango  President Obama acknowledged on Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School, contradicting a statement more than a year ago that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting.
