Not all Americans are “stupid”, just the ones supporting Obamacare. Gruber got that part wrong by saying the taxpayers are “stupid”. What he really should have said is; the taxpayers who support Obamacare are stupid. What’s really “stupid” is 30 million people still don’t have health insurance, so, what changed by enacting this 2400 page sleazy bill written by sleazy elitists. Speaking of sleazy, none of our Congress critters are on the Obamacare health plan and, their staffs are exempt as well. Obviously they don’t think it’s the greatest thing since the wheel, why do they think we would? They knew the 40% tax on their “Cadillac plans” would be growing exponentially, it’s written in the bill. Dems damned near broke their necks to change that one. The higher the cost of their highend plans the more it will be taxed. (we all know the costs of having insurance is spiking) That will eventually include all insurance plans provided by employers. That’s the “plan”. The union leaders who invested so much money into praising the “plan”, and all those union dues spent to support the very people who are screwing them over, now that is “stupid”. PJ Media has more. Funny how the Obama devotees are so quiet lately. They realize they are the “stupid” ones.
Dem voters loved this plan, we were all meanies and hated the uninsured. They let a lot of emotion flow, but not much reasoning. Now, as their premiums go up, they sit there slack jawed. Many of those Dim-wits actually thought they would not be affected in any way by the “plan”. Obama promised they could keep their plan and their Doctors but, he knowingly lied. There is an old adage Dem voters should start paying attention to, “if it sounds to good to be true, it’s too good to be true”. They are the “stupid” people Gruber and the Dems depended on for support. It certainly wasn’t all those people who marched in DC to protest the “plan” or people like you and me who kept saying “NO”. At least one Dem woke up; read it all, he’s really cranky.
The disastrous rollout of the Affordable Care Act was the catalyst for my party’s midterm thumping.
News from the UAE concerning terrorist organizations included a list of groups that have been so designated by the government. This is a huge rebuke by an Arab country. Legal Insurrection has more
The UAE has classified the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society as terrorist groups, according to a story on the website of WAM, the official news agency.
Also reportedly designated as terror groups were the Muslim Brotherhood, the Muslim Association of Britain, and the charity Islamic Relief.
Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch. I don’t think the UAE is too concerned about being considered “Islamophobic”.
63% weren’t stupid, knew all along this was another redistribution of wealth, mostly from the middle classes. From the Washington Free Beacon. What a repulsive bunch the Dems have become. Is it any wonder they lost the midterms.
Why did libs lose the mid-terms? Other than their policies for the US are a major mistake and, they steal, lie, and cheat the public, this is why.
We do live in the greatest country on the face of the earth, there is no equivalent, there is no one that can replace us and who we are and, there is no one who has done more to protect and serve than our servicemen and women. From the very beginning of this “great experiment”, the men and women who took up arms for our freedom showed courage above and beyond. No greater love hath any man, or woman, then to lay down their lives for the cause of freedom. There is a long line of men and women who sacrificed their all for all of us. Yes, they did build this so each of us could live our lives in peace. Today we pay homage to all of them known and unknown, living and dead, and we are a grateful nation for their sacrifices.
The two videos posted are a deep contrast between the corrupt and ignorant left and the honorable men and women who volunteer to serve in our Armed Services.
People think they are being ruled and not governed, tired of arrogance and mishandling of every single issue foreign or domestic. Tired of the race baiting and misogyny coming out of the D-words mouths. Tired of not finding full time jobs because of Obamacare.
Charges of racism and fear tactics
Campaign materials aimed at getting out the black vote are featuring references to lynchings, Jim Crow-era signs, racial unrest — and, as of last weekend, the Ku Klux Klan.
After years of mass immigration, falling wages, and surging joblessness, isn’t it time we focused on the needs of the people living here today? Isn’t it time we got our own people back to work?
But these cosmopolitan elites, these great citizens of the world, turn a blind eye to the suffering and poverty in their own backyards. These “Masters of the Universe” have forgotten that a nation owes its first loyalty to its own citizens.
And they want you to believe that you can’t win.
America’s future, our kids,
After six years of “hope and change,” two recent polls expose the depth of American gloom about the future. In what The Washington Post described as “a stunning indication of the historic uncertainty and pessimism coursing through the public,” an August NBC-Wall Street Journal poll found that 76 percent of the American people do not feel confident that their children will have a better life than they do.
BO doesn’t like you very much for yanking his pedestal out from under him either…can’t you just be adoring again?
Politico’s scribes insist that an Obama comeback after two historic rebukes at the hands of voters is not a “crazy scenario,” but that framing concedes that it would defy history. Many of Obama’s advisors privately told these reporters that Obama is consumed with animosity toward the fates that so cruelly elevated him to near divinity only to abandon him. He hates that Democrats no longer want to be seen with him. He despises the fact that his formerly close confidants are eager to leave the White House. Most of all, he resents the voters who have imposed these conditions upon him.
Hopefully the voters have it figured out and will do what it takes to stop BO from furthering his disgusting agenda and end this charade of a Presidency.
They can’t help themselves, still stuck in the 60s. The Dems are so hostile and embarrassing sending out fliers and mailers that are just plain “creepy”. Using threats and the race card is a sign of desperation. They have nothing to offer except veiled threats.
Public radio host Colin McEnroe wrote in his Hartford Courantcolumn Thursday: “Just when you thought this campaign season couldn’t sink any lower or become any more repulsive, the Connecticut Democrats have found a new crack they can slither down into.”
“The tone of the mailings is chilling, like something you’d get from Stasi in East Berlin in 1967,” McEnroe wrote. “‘Who you vote for is private, but whether or not you vote is public record,’ it says.”
“And then: ‘We will be reviewing these records after the election to determine whether or not you joined your neighbor in voting.’
The left loves misery, not theirs, yours. They will use anything to denigrate, divide and abuse those who disagree with them. Libertarians, Ultra conservatives and Centrists need to think more about what can stop the leftist march rather than what divides us. Yes, you may have to hold your nose and vote for the less than perfect candidate. But, it’s the only way to stop the destruction of leftist policies and the subjugation of all of us. Moral Lepers read it all
The left, showing its shallowness and lack of morals, chooses to defend people guilty of real, heinous crimes. They make martyrs of people who robbed convenience stores and attacked cops. They enshrine politicians who grow rich at the public expense while talking about the plight of the poor. They embraced racists, and gave them long lives in the democratic party. And they embrace feminists no matter how horrible their blogs or stories are, including those that advocate the elimination of all males or stories (MANY. Do your homework) that imply all men are evil because penis.
This is because they have no principles and no ideas. So the “Democrat” or “communist” or “socialist” label makes someone’s thoughts “safe” even when despicable. (And the fact that communist and socialist are “safe” labels tells you how much they will swallow, because those two regimes always end in blood, faster or slower, overt or covert.)
So by allowing them to Mao Mao the right into splintering and isolating, we’re allowing the truly bad, truly disgusting, truly immiserating ideas to prevail. We’re allowing innocents to think that the SJWs have some sort of moral high ground. We’re allowing the destruction of civilization.
Explanations for Obama’s failures vary in their honesty and persuasiveness, of course. Mary Landrieu represents the more hackish end of the spectrum. Borrowing a line from the New York Times editorial board, Landrieu blamed it all on southern racism and sexism. In fairness, she was speaking specifically about Louisianans — you know, her constituents. But she helpfully managed to throw all of the South under the bus as well. Hey, if you’re going to go down in a blaze of glory, why be stingy with the kerosene?
Of course, the problem with this theory is that Obama is unpopular across America and in at least 43 states. Even the most generous definition of “southern racist” won’t get you that far in explaining his unpopularity in Wisconsin or Michigan. Moreover, for his numbers to be so bad, it means lots of people who voted for him once or even twice must now disapprove of him. Did all of these independents and moderate Republicans wake up one morning and decide to cut some eyeholes in their pillowcases and become Klansmen?
To everyone who supports that ugliness, that dog won’t hunt anymore. May be you should get out more often, climb down from your Ivory Towers and join the rest of us in the melting pot. It’s just so damned embarrassing to hear Rep Lewis and Rep Rangel use this as a vote getter. Newsflash to all the Dems racebaiting, it is one of the reasons I ran from the Dem Party and will never go back. Who wants to belong to a party that treats certain segments of the populace like trash until they need their votes.
State Senator Guillory has something to say as well in answer to Landrieu et al

While Michelle Obama’s skimpy school lunch mandates have been widely rejected by students and schools, the elite private school attended by both Obama daughters will be serving chicken wings and potato chips on Wednesday.
After Wednesday’s chicken wings, on Thursday Obama’s daughters can get a Cuban sandwich. Pasco County Schools in Florida had to eliminate Cuban sandwiches because they violated Michelle Obama’s lunch standards.

From Victor Davis Hanson
And so we get the disreputable Malik Shabazz as a Robespierre-like street arbitrator of calm or violence in Ferguson, various ethnic pressure groups as de facto legislators adjudicating who will be granted access to the United States, and the current administration able to pick and choose which particular existing federal law is deemed fair and useful and which discriminatory and counter-productive — and rendered therefore null and void.
In all these cases, any particular law at any particular moment can be judged obsolete and an impediment to social justice — and so it can be replaced immediately by a sort of revolutionary justice with the full backing of the administrative state.
In that sense, even the old racial warhorses Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have become passé, as we’ve evolved now well beyond the misinformation and racialist politics of the Tawana Brawley carnival, the Duke Lacrosse caper, and the Trayvon Martin controversy. And so what was once written off as street theater has now been elevated to revolutionary jurisprudence — a lasting legacy of the Obama administration in general, and in particular the Holder Justice Department.
Dems find out the “millenials” aren’t as stupid as they thought….. another ‘October surprise’.
A new and massive poll of 2,029 18- to 29-year-olds from Harvard’s Institute of Politics just released found that of those who say they will “definitely be voting,” 51 percent want the GOP in charge, 47 percent favoring Democratic control.
The unexpected anti-Democratic swing prompted a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter quizzing poll experts on a media conference call to IOP blurted out, “How did the Democrats and Obama screw this up?”
How did they screw it up? By letting the lunatic fringe on the left decide policy and, by being a bunch of lawless tyrants.
This is what the Dems want for us….all of them BO’s policies…worth watching again and passing on…
Hopefully the American people are fed up with the abuses of the Obama administration and their smug and ugly sycophants on the left which includes the lame stream media.

And, from Josh Earnest via Townhall
“The stakes for this election are high which is why you’ve seen the President so invested in raising money and trying to lend some organizational expertise to other Democratic candidates. In some cases he’s campaigned for them. The President is dedicated to supporting candidate who support a middle class agenda that he has strongly advocated,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday. “What I’m saying is that individual candidates across the country are running their own campaigns as they should and I’m confident that they will get all of the credit or blame that they deserve for the outcome of the election. I’m also confident that people will evaluate what the President could have done to be helpful. Did he do all he could to raise as much money for Democratic candidates given all of the challenges that are on his plate? And the President has worked very hard.”
The ONLY middle class agenda BO has is to tax them to death and make them pay exorbitant costs for Obamacare, none of which are affordable.
What a surprise! Color me stunned knowing Ms. Vinson was so ignorant , as well as the CDC, to take a flight out of Cleveland Hopkins to Dallas. What the hell were they thinking? Paging Dr. Obama.
Later on Wednesday, after cancelling a congressional campaign trip to Connecticut, President Obama said that the U.S. would become more aggressive in coordinating the national response to Ebola, including sending a CDC team to any hospital with a confirmed Ebola case.
But, by stopping short of issuing mandatory protocols, the President again fell back on the catch-as-catch-can system that produced such disastrous results in Dallas. He did so at the peril of health-care providers and the public — because trust that individual hospitals here, there and everywhere would perform superbly is decidedly misplaced. [snip]
Neither Obama nor Frieden had the sense to issue directives with the firm, clear quality of standards sought by National Nurses United, representing thousands of nurses across the country.
BO is a walking-talking unmitigated disaster as President. Americans, by a overwhelming majority, want flight restrictions from ebola stricken countries. Obama’s spectacular incompetence turns deadly
A new poll from the Washington Post and ABC News shows 67 percent of people say they would support restricting entry to the United States from countries struggling with Ebola. Another 91 percent would like to see stricter screening procedures at U.S. airports in response to the disease’s spread.
Obama got his Katrina moment and failed miserably. The outbreak prevention was dismissed by Obama. And, protocols by the Bush administration were so offensive to BO he couldn’t leave them in place. Those protocols would have stopped Duncan from entering the US by lying. Obama is to blame for all of this mess and chaos. He is definitely a product of the Peter Principle, risen to the heights of his incompetence level.
The Centers for Disease Control told the incoming Obama administration in 2008 that it should establish 18 regional disease detection centers around the world to adequately safeguard the U.S. from emerging health threats like Ebola, according to an agency memo.
So, what has BO done to assure us we aren’t in any danger? PHTO-OPS! Yes, he shows us how hard he’s working and how much he cares by taking pics of him sitting around pretending to work. Why not take pics of him in his limo heading to the golf course being interrupted by Burwell. After all, that is the real BO.
Pigs are flying!! Chris Matthews has decided that BO needs to stop “pandering to ethnic groups“.
MSNBC host Chris Matthews criticized President Obama on Wednesday for gridlock in Washington on illegal immigration, arguing that he needs to quit pandering to ethnic groups and “get something done.”
Appearing on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Mr. Matthews argued that the reason illegal immigrants are flooding the U.S. borders is not for welfare opportunities or crime — it’s for jobs, and he said the best way to slow the influx is to ban businesses from hiring illegals. [snip]
“Why doesn’t the president say, instead of pandering to the Hispanic vote and liberals, why doesn’t he just say ‘You know what, I’m willing to strike a compromise. We need to get tough on illegal immigrants?’” Mr. Matthews continued.
“The fact is, this president has the opportunity to put it together. But he needs to stop playing politics, stop running for office, stop playing the ethnic groups, and say, ‘Look, I’ve only got two years left. I have to get something done,’” he said.
Yes, name them, shame them and, fine them. Make sure the Hispanic governments know anyone crossing our borders illegally will be deported, period. That also includes anyone from any foreign country, no matter where they came from. Time to end the flood.
Of course, the White House is saying something different. BO doesn’t want to pi** off anyone so close to the midterm elections. Josh Earnest made that very clear on Wednesday. Obama doesn’t want immigration reform to be ‘casualty’ of election
The White House said Wednesday that President Obama delayed his decision on immigration reform until after the midterm elections because he didn’t want Republicans to win on the issue and become emboldened by it.
“The concern is that, had the president moved forward with his announcement prior to Election Day, you would have seen Republican candidates do more to make the immigration issue central to their campaign,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “And in the event that they were successful in their campaign, the concern would be that they would cite their opposition to immigration reform as a reason for their success.”
Newsflash, the majority is already opposed to amnesty for illegals and it already is a political problem for the Dems. It might become an even bigger problem when citizens find out the Enterovirus-D68 is more than likely to have come from El Salvador where there was a recent outbreak and from Nicaragua. 620 children have been hospitalized and 5 have died from the virus. Funny the virus seems to center in the states where the central American illegals were dispatched to live. Sharyl Attkinson has the story, Polio-like illness claims fifth life in U.S.
Though the U.S. government is keeping secret the locations of the illegal immigrant children, there are significant numbers of them in both cities in which the current outbreak was first identified, Kansas City, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois, according to local advocates and press reports.
and this; Confirmed: 4 ISIS terrorists apprehended at southern border in last 36 hours But, the Panderer-in-Chief and Jeh Johnson of DHS deny our porous borders are a problem. They are too busy acquiring a new voter group to care about disease or terrorism, putting Americans at risk, mostly our children.
The president is willing to pass laws and sign executive orders to save children from gun violence, but in reality, a threat far greater than guns looms in the form of deadly pathogens. Still, the man who talked about caring for our children remains staunchly defiant in his refusal to protect those very children from people carrying not guns and ammunition, but deadly contagions and infectious disease.
The Panderer-in-Chief keeps prostituting himself to ethnic groups and puts our children in danger. His ideology and politics are much more important to him than protecting US citizens. BO is the worse pResident in the history of the US. Even Jimmy Carter is criticizing him for his lack of action on terrorists. That has got to hurt.
Former President Jimmy Carter is criticizing President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy, saying he has shifting policies and waited too long to take action against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
BO is a reactive Preezy not a proactive one. He is a pathetic leader in a world filled with aggression. He prefers genocide at the hands of Muslim to actually taking a stand. He’s lazy and ignorant, not capable or having the will to stop the spread of genocide in the ME at the hands of ISIL. He actually thought the color of his skin and studying in a madrassa in Indonesia and, his “worldwide apology tour” would be enough, it wasn’t. He is a petty thinskinned whiner blaming his failures on others. He is the person responsible for the release of Al Baghdadi who is the Caliph of the ISIL movement and their barbarity. He has failed miserably in his position. Lately he has been very angry and tightjawed when speaking because he has lost all credibility with the majority of US citizens. The President’s Emotional State Bears Watching
The man who by a wide margin has received the most worshipful press coverage in at least the last half-century is complaining that the press is mistreating him. A president who routinely misleads the public on matters large and small, who first ran for president on the promise of unifying America but governs based on dividing it, and who allows the most important national-security matters to be decided by crass political considerations is blaming others for feeding cynicism.
Watching a narcissist struggle to deal with massive, multiplying failures can be a poignant thing, especially when everyone gets what’s going on except the narcissist and his enablers. When this happens to a sitting president, however, what is poignant becomes alarming. Because it’s always better that the president of the United States live in reality rather than creating his own.
We have been so busy at the Victorian Homestead cleaning summer out of the yard (including the last of the garden). The Autumn Purple trees are turning and it’s just beautiful. The sun is out and, hopefully, the rains have ended for a few days. So, politics is going to take a backseat. Our baby Skyler is thriving and I wanted to share her progress with you, she had a very rough start as most of you know. Her biological parent hasn’t entered rehab yet and still shows up for visitation high. Skyler’s advocate (lawyer) has gone to court and was granted permanent custody to the state for her well being. Hopefully by July 2015 the adoption will go through. Her biological parent has three other children which have been permanently adopted by other families or placed under guardianship by the court. We have three social workers assigned to her case, ours, hers, and the bio parents’. She has a pediatrician who specializes in drug babies and he is just phenomenal.
Everyone takes care of her because she can’t self comfort yet. Thank goodness she has older brothers and a sister.
Sometimes she falls asleep in her chair. She absolutely loves it but, hates her baby swing with a passion. lol
So many wonderful people have gifted her with so much and we are so grateful to all of you who have done that for her.
She’s ready for Halloween, sent to her by a guy on a gaming message board. She now can glo-in-the-dark.
and there are all the ‘pretties in pink’ that we love, sent by another blog friend. Her favorite toy is a monkey given to her by her youngest brother.

Obama: My Policies Are On The Ballot This Election
How can they not be? It is the policies of his administration that have the world in a big mess. Always insulting and demeaning to anyone who thinks differently. Always with the attack dogs who keep shouting down reasonable questions. Always embroiled in scandals. Always loathe to do the job required which is to represent all of us, not just the few. Always lying to the public whether he needs to or not. Always blaming someone else for his decisions and failures. For some reason he thinks we will just vote Democrat to save his horrible-no good-destructive policies that have hurt everyone but his cronies and the top 10%. Obamacare is still hated by 60% of the populace who do not believe ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to healthcare.
Every single thing this president has tried or promised has failed. The economy? Fail. Transparency in government? Fail. Easing racial tension? Fail. Ending war? Fail. Winning Afghanistan? Fail.
Hell, he could not even pull off the Beer Summit between Professor Gates and the white cop. It ended with no one conceding anything.
The only two things he got right in nearly 6 years is his 2009 NCAA bracket and killing that fly on TV.
The Democratic plan was simple: Hide behind the black guy, pass a bunch of socialist crapola and wait for the crowd to applaud. Anyone who doesn’t like it will be branded a racist.
There was just one problem with the Democratic Party programs: They didn’t work.
I hope to hell the election is referendum on this president’s policies because not one has worked. Not one.
Yes, indeed BO’s Magic Kingdom is crumbling while Dems and the LSM do their level best to cover for him. “Modern journalism is all about deciding which facts the public shouldn’t know because they might reflect badly on Democrats.”
