The CBO came out today with some devastating information about ObamaCare – Actually, ObamaCare Is Kinda LIke A Tax and It’s Going to Result in 2 Million Fewer Workers by 2017 “An almost two percent reduction to the numbers of hours worked purely because of the law’s effects is kind of a big deal, and you can bet that this is not going to be welcome news to the handful of panicking Senate Democrats trying to stave off awkward questions about their “yea” votes for ObamaCare by focusing on their economically populist messaging strategy.” Yep.
Barry’s Minions Have Quickly Responded: White House Pushes Back on CBO Report “Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors Jason Furman told reporters that the law would not reduce the hours being offered by employers. Instead, Furman said, ObamaCare allowed greater “choice” — for workers to scale back their hours to spend more time with their children, or to leave their jobs to launch a small business or startup. “This is Barry’s not businesses cutting back on jobs. This is people having new choices,” Furman said.” ARE YOU FREAKIN’ KIDDING ME???? You gotta see this guy – and he’s Obama’s top economic advisor???? HOLY TOLEDO!
Irony, Much? Mayo Clinic Employees Get Benefit Cuts, Cost Hikes After ObamaCare “The premiere health-care provider network and big Minnesota employer will have to cut benefits for its own employees, in part to comply with ObamaCare’s coverage mandates and in part to deal with exploding insurance premiums under the new law.”
Pass the Pork – Oh Wait, It Already Passed. Senate Ready To Pass The Farm Bill and All Its Non-Improvements It preserves such important and essential things like the Wool Trust Fund and The Maple Tax Act for Chuckie Schumer.
Senators: Kerry Admits Obama Syria Policy Is Failing “In a closed-door meeting, two senators say, the Secretary of State admitted to them that he no longer believes the administration’s approach to the crisis in Syria is working. Peace talks have failed, he conceded, and now it’s time to arm the moderate opposition—before local al Qaeda fighters try to attack the United States.” Gee, what a surprise.

Oh Goody – Sandra Fluke’s Running for Congress: Ask For Government to be Your Sugar Daddy, Become a Democrat Congressional Candidate. Sounds About Right This seems appropriate:
ICYMI: Navy SEAL Sniper Chris Kyle Honored at Super Bowl by Joe Namath “U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle was celebrated for being considered “America’s deadliest sniper” with 160 confirmed kills out of 255 claimed kills. He was shot at a gun range by another veteran on February 2nd of last year. God bless you Chris and all of our fallen brothers and sisters.”
Oh yeah – wondering what happened to the Broncos? Look no further….(Shaka to Rose)
God Bless America – Pass This On!!
ALOHA, ALL!! Have you noticed how the Democrats are suddenly and mysteriously silent about gun control lately? While there was some chatter after Gabriel Giffords was shot, they haven’t said a word especially in light of the school shooting in Ohio. What gives? Have they suddenly realized that the Second Amendment gives us a constitutional right to bear arms? Don’t hold your breath – it’s merely a political move. It seems that more and stricter gun control measures are less popular than ever. Has Fast & Furious turned around and bitten them in their despicable okoles? Some stats:
- Support for an outright ban on handguns is at an all time low of just 26%
- More Americans oppose (53%) rather than support (43%) a ban on semi-automatics (or so-called “assault riffles”), a flip from the peak of Democrat led gun hysteria in the 1990’s
- Fewer Americans than ever – just 43% – say gun laws should be “more strict”, while 44% say “less strict” and 11% say “kept the same”
- And 60% say that we should better enforce current laws, with only 35% supporting passage of more laws
So the Democrats realize that pushing for gun control is a LOSER issue for them heading into November. Which is exactly why the Republicans should seize upon it. Here’s a great, no-nonsense commentary: The campaign dog that hasn’t barked – yet | Conservative Outpost Summed up in a couple of sentences: “Remember, issues win campaigns. And the fact that Democrats aren’t talking about guns means that they don’t want to. Make them.”
Where has all the ammo gone? This notice appears on the site Georgia Arms It seems Obama and the Democrats have been good for business. In fact, sales of guns and ammo have been at high levels for the past three years. Have you bought yours yet? Gun Sales In America Soar … AGAIN (Shaka to Lee for the links)

Mark Levin: I will donate $50,000 to Obama if he will debate me for one hour « Hot Air I would LOVE to see this one!!!!!! “I’ll tell you what — I will give, are you ready for this Mr. Producer? I will give $50,000 to Obama’s Super PAC if he will debate me for one hour.” Since Obama has been traveling the country in search of smaller donations, Levin asked, why not take him up on his bigger offer?”
One of the best ads I’ve seen in a LONG time! (Shaka to Dick for the link)
Harry Reid Reverses Course on Judges; Political Stunt Backfires Ha Ha!!! Harry needs to go back to Nevada and his pomegranate trees. “Reid, hoping to paint Republicans as obstructionists on judges, held up passage of the House-approved JOBS Act. Reid charged that the minority had “refused to allow us to even vote” on nominees and “prevented the Senate from doing its constitutional duty.” But those bombastic claims were easily dismissed by a quick review of history.”
Jim Belushi Raises Money for Obama, Castro | FrontPage Magazine Bye Bye Belushi – I’ll never watch another one of your movies! “As he chummed it up with regime apparatchiks in Cuba (where the average annual salary is $230), Jim Belushi was fresh from last month’s $38,500-per-plate Obama fundraiser in Beverly Hills where he shared the honors alongside George Clooney.”
White House-Backed Review of Energy Department Loans Omits Solyndra | CNSNews.com They thought we wouldn’t notice??? Rand Paul grills this guy – be sure to watch the video. “An “independent review” commissioned by the White House to evaluate loans issued by the U.S. Department of Energy did not include a review of DOE loans to failed alternative energy projects such as Solyndra and Beacon Power.”
Sandra Fluke can’t afford contraception, but expensive trips to Europe… not a problem! | Liberty News Network Knock me over with a feather. She can’t spend $9/month on birth control pills but takes trips to Europe with her boyfriend, Adam Mutterperl (turns out she’s not gay, I guess.) What a fraud this woman is!!! Be sure to check out the link for more pictures of their excellent European vacation. “They recently traveled to Spain and Italy together. It was a lovely getaway for the women’s rights activist and her rich socialist boyfriend. Here the two lovebirds are roughing it late at night in Barcelona – drunk.”
YES…ALL THESE PHOTOS ARE REAL AND EASILY ACCESSED ON MUTTERPERL’S FACEBOOK PAGE. You think maybe he likes the publicity and attention? Why else would he leave all these pictures there for anyone to see? UPDATE: MUTTERPERL HAS NOW MADE HIS FACEBOOK PAGE PRIVATE – but I captured these pictures before he did! To read more about him and his wealthy socialist-leaning socialite Boston blueblood family, go here: Sandra does Spain – Common American Journal
