Michelle-O’s Princeton classmate, Toni Townes-Whitley, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, the no-bid contractor that built the $678 million Healthcare.gov according to The Daily Caller. This is my answer to those, myself included, who wondered why in the he!! would our .government give a no-bid contract of that size to a non-American contractor when so many Americans are out of work.
And by the way, what’s up with the no-bid contracts these days?
Oops. RT reports NSA down, Friday afternoon, due to DDoS (distributed denial-of-service attack). Unbelievable. But true?
U.S. House votes to delay the Health Care Law for One Year, 231-192. The House also voted to continue military pay during any possible shutdown, making it very clear they don’t want a shutdown.
..and no end. Their efforts are to make those who are successful by their own hand, pay the bills for those who are not motivated to help themselves when it is shown they can. They (Democrat/Liberal) show their plan actually results in bringing down the successful Man, eventually killing us all.
The Democrats/Liberals current noble cause is their blind-folded “fix” to the obviously broken healthcare system. Let’s face it, the current (Un)Affordable Care Act is a debacle. It sorely misses the target which is the run-away insurance companies. When healthcare plans/services were morphed into healthcare insurance, healthcare took a dive. Greed does such things to good people.
Our .government also refuses to acknowledge the pharmaceutical element in the healthcare debacle. For several decades now, the standards for releasing medicines into the population has been degraded, with less and less studies being carried out to make sure each medication released is safe and affordable. More and more people are suffering severe and fatal reactions to substandard medications.
The healthcare groupthink has been to continue to make people sick to fatten their pockets instead of giving up the greed and turn their attention to health prevention and looking at the entire body/mind component to ill health.
Wow. Just wow. I want to hear your thoughts on this, my dear readers.
Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) shared the podium with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) to disgust (sic) gun control and yup, there’s that word again, “Common Sense” bandied about during their discussion. Both senators agree that society is on the down spiral, morals-wise, but they think that background checks will ferret out hoodlums and the mentally ill from obtaining guns. COMMON SENSE, senators?
- It’s naive and irrational to think that a criminal is going to fill out background check information, wait for it, honestly. Honestly, it’s the most stupid presumption going here, guys.
- Likewise, the mentally ill, may have no COMMON SENSE and will lie, beg or borrow any dam weapon they can get their hands on (the recent stabbing at Lone Star College proves this).
- It’s only honest, law-abiding citizens that, wait for it, obey laws.
With all due respect, senators.
Listen to Sen. Bill Nelson peppering his remarks today with the words “common sense” regarding the gun control bill that will be voted on tomorrow. C-SPAN covering the floor speeches concerning the up-coming gun control vote. Nelson prefaced his remarks with an obligatory “I love guns!” story relating his own pro-gun activities like duck hunting. Yawn. Then he went on (and on and on) about “common sense” – regarding background checks and restricting magazines to no more than 10 bullets. No more high-capacity magazines. Saying it’s “common sense” to ban Assault Weapons that the Military uses showing his ignorance on “assault weapons” which has been refuted by weapons experts for the last…..millennium. Yawn. “Common sense” this and “common sense” that. Enough already. HOW ABOUT the COMMON SENSE in upholding the gun laws already on the books?! HOW ABOUT the COMMON SENSE in differentiating between GUN CONTROL vs. CRIME PREVENTION.
CRIME PREVENTION only WORKS if you enforce EXISTING GUN LAWS. Let’s get off the run-away meme GUN CONTROL and replace it with Common Sense, wait for it, CRIME PREVENTION tactics. Better yet –
SELF-CONTROL not gun control.
What a novel thought.
Stalin would be proud of the leftists employment of semantic engineering to advance their cause. Saul Alinsky is doing cartwheels over his little-fisted napoleons reframing the real issue – our law enforcement refusing to engage in CRIME PREVENTION.
I call it the ‘Castro Hour’ in dis(honor) of Fidel hisself, for all his speeches, sermons and harangues held for hours and days at a time, in the open, village square, perpetually, standing-room only*. Why? Because I couldn’t find a TV station that wasn’t showing the ‘Castro Hour’, that’s why! And I thought the networks had come to their prez-O fatigue moment last year, not feeling compelled to carry every one of his appearances..several times..every day. There for awhile. Better get those seats, folks, the name-calling begins now. This is the time when everyone attending is announced so it will be known for eons this-or-that senator, this-or-that representative, this-or-that VIP, not-so-important attendees, SCOTUS, and not a mouse in sight, attended the occasion. There was a time when I watched the State of the Union Address, filled with pride and hope – not high on Hopium. So without further ado…..SEND IN THE CLOWNS!!!.
UPDATE 1: Grown-ups screeching?
UPDATE 2: I didn’t know “clapping” came in cans like laughter.
UPDATE 3: No one’s hands or arms have fallen off yet.
UPDATE 4: Wow. CONTRIVANCE EXTRAORDINAIRE!
UPDATE 5: Phoney-baloney pomp & circumstance fit for a king.
UPDATE 6: Well. That introduction was o.b.s.c.e.n.e.
Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit, 2013 State of the Union Address – OPEN THREAD
Since when has it been alright for lahw enfarcement to open-fire on a vehicle on the open roads of America? (S)
Not since Bonnie & Clyde, I’d reckon! Yes, yes, yes, I know lahw enfarcement are searching for this Dorner character, the 33 year old fugitive suspected of killing three people and injuring two others. BUT COME ON! Lahw enfarcement mistake the vehicle for Dorner’s pickup, open-fire on the vehicle injuring 2 mail carriers?!? HOLY COW. This is nucking futz.
And to think, we all agree it’s outrageous when SWAHT teams kick down the door of the wrong house and spray the inside with bazookas killing innocent people. -oo- But now, Americans have to worry about being gunned down in public by trigger-happy LEcowboys out & about on a manhunt?!?
Megaphone Alert: Lahw Enfarcement to Americans: PAY ATTENTION. We are conditioning you to the policies and procedures of the impending lahw enfarcement manifesto which may include open-fire on moving vehicles on our highways, pin-point drone attacks and surgical excision of targeted homesteads suspected to harbor ugly thoughts.
Please.professionals with a brain, moderate disposition and common sense, you need to pony up to the big kahunas and put a stop to this madness. Stop talking about these abuses, lecturing the choir, and ‘safety-in-numbers’ C-SPAN appearances if you can’t deliver change to these lawless practices. Otherwise, take another hit on your Hopium and ride outta town on your horse with no legs, howboutit?
