It started out as Free Health Care. That whipped the unwashed, low information masses into a frenzy. Got a lot of people in on this idea. Garnered a lot of support. Then they changed it bit by bit. “You can keep your old plan.” And “You can keep your same Doctor.” While never telling anyone that in fact, no, it’s not free.
Then it turned into something else… Like something out of the Sopranos. It’s more like, “So, you’re gunna buy this health care policy. You have until the end of the year. Or else.”
Unless your part of The Family. Then you get exemptions. It’s universal for everyone else.
This is like a Mafia style Protection Racket. It’s not lowering the cost of anything. In fact, for most everyone, it’s more expensive. A lot more expensive.
I fully expect to hear Joe Biden come out and say “That’s a nice Health Care Plan you have there… I’d hate to see anything happen to it.”
He is pushing his own Agenda in backing the Syrian Rebels, who are backed by both terrorists, and the Muslim Brotherhood. (Same thing?) Pushing against international opposition to strike Syria plays into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood and basically the entire Muslim Street agenda of doing away with Israel.
Obama’s backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, given them weapons and aircraft. To fight who? Who would Egypt need fighter jets to fight? Israel.
Who is the target if the US strike’s Syria? New York? Israel. Everyone is pointing guns at Israel, and Obama is giving them the ammo.
And the guns.
For what? His Anti-Israeli feelings? This is going to cost thousands of lives, if not hundreds of thousands of human lives. Many Americans. Many families of Americans. Friends of Americans. Business Partners of Americans.
Who Wins in all of this? America? No. Who?
You know who… The same people who we’ve been fighting against since September 11th, 2001 They are winning.
If we do this, what do we get out of it? Nothing but more Cattle Car Security, Federal Scrutiny, and Higher Taxes… and the sacrifices and deaths of our Military brothers.
I do not support this push for war. I do not support this President’s agenda. I am sorry that Syria is a train wreck of a country and so many innocent people are dead and dying… Syria has never been our Friend, they chose to befriend the Axis of Evil, Russia, China, and those oppressive Communist regimes. I say those allies of theirs can help those people. Not us. We don’t need to sacrifice ourselves and Israel to help people who would have loved to have seen these Chemical Weapons used on Americans.
I heard this as interpreted by a hottie on Fox News… the Government says “Help me, help you to protect you, from me.” I chuckled at that for a bit. A couple days later I was listening to an Obamacracy Official, and damned if that just isn’t exactly what he was saying.
So we need more legislation to keep these guys from overstepping boundaries, when we already have laws stating that they can’t over step boundaries.
And you know it’s bad when even The Huffington Post is holding up their hands and saying “Whoa, wait a sec here.”
Things were fine when they were just targeting Fox reporters, but they crossed the line when they went after the AP reporter. That was the trigger that made it all blow up in their faces. What’s asinine is that all of this was known well before the election and it’s only coming out after Bama’s got his second term.
I don’t envy the Dems come Mid Terms… the results are going to be scathing.

No, I’m not making this up. Some of these layoffs were planned in advance of the Election regardless, but were asked to not announce until after the election – such as Boeing, who had been hinting at it though for some time. Many of the others were holding on and were not going to lay people off if Romney won. Many of these companies just couldn’t afford to keep them on thanks to the Healthcare laws passed which would have been repealed under Romney.
Guys, this has just started. There are going to be more layoffs coming. Buckle up. It’s going to get bumpy.
For you business owners out there… something to think about….
You didn’t fire those workers. The Democrats did.
Words can not describe my utter dismay and disappointment with the Election. I am glad MadOgre.com has been down for a few days since the election – because my ranting would have been as incoherent as Liberal Logic.
We have (as a Nation) re-elected the guy that basically ordered the death of a US Ambassador and a couple US Navy SEALS. We’ve elected the guy that bows before leaders of other nations, not as a lack of tact – but as a symbol to the world that America is lower than the others. Come on, he even bowed to a Florida Mayor. We’ve elected the guy that has been to all 57 States. The guy that claimed to be a Foreign Student at Colombia. The guy that grew up hating America. We’ve elected to keep sending Chewbacca on expensive and extravagant vacations. We’ve elected to keep going down the path of Socialism and destruction.
As a Nation… We have really and truly fucked up. How did this happen?
At first the Administration didn’t know anything. Then they tried to point fingers at an Internet Movie. Then they didn’t know anything again. Then they only found out too late. Well, now it seems that not only did they know, but they watched it happen live. Not only that but it is rumored that they actually told US Asssets to Stand Down. So not only did they watch it – but they wanted it to happen. Much as surfaced about the Benghazi attack. All the truth will eventually come out.
If Obama really did order CIA and Marine Assets to Stand Down, as has been reported, then it is clear that Obama actually did want those men to die. Specifically the Ambassador.
So my question is this.
Why did Obama want U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens to die? The other men were just collateral damage in this. But Obama chose to let Stevens die… he wanted him to die.
That’s what I want answered.
Because the POTUS doing what he did… Ordering the Marines to NOT follow their standing orders, to thrice deny CIA requests to go in. These were active decisions to let Stevens die. What did Stevens do? What did Stevens know? It had to be something very horrible… because otherwise Obama has basically sentenced the man to die and then watched it happen. He might not of pulled the trigger himself, but he ordered it. This is most un-presidential and he needs to be held accountable for it.
It is being reported that the President is now sending “About a Hundred” US troops to Uganda. This is great. Because I was thinking we were running out of pointless wars… Iraq and Libya coming to ends, that would leave us with only one! Afghanistan. Now we don’t have to fret at all. Military Advisers never gets us drawn in an escalation into a shooting war…
*looks at the history books and turns pages to Vietnam*
Uganda. That’s great. At least its not another shithole place like…
