Friday Bits and Pieces
The bringers of chaos are at it again….. you know the ones we formerly called the media. Those who consider themselves much more “enlightened” are labeling everyone whose opinions and experiences are much different then theirs. Why does the left insist on labeling people? Chris Matthews is one of the worst offenders when it comes to labels and linguistic gymnastics, calling Senator Ted Cruz a “political terrorist”. As far as we know Cruz hasn’t killed anyone, nor has he displayed any predilection to becoming a terrorist. But, that doesn’t stop Matthews creepy and unjustified pronouncement. Maybe the pompous ass should look up the definition of “terrorist”.
It is Mr. Matthews who is seeking to cause chaos, in particular linguistic chaos, by his muddled accusation and even more muddled definition in defense of his accusation.
A moment’s thought might have saved Mr. Matthews from this catalogue of errors, but as Housman remarked, thought is a painful process and a moment is a long time.
You’ll be thrilled to know legislators and their staff are now exempt from Obamacare. They all like their plan and the bringers of chaos want to keep their plan which all taxpayers subsidize. If that doesn’t turn the Senate from blue to red, I don’t know what will. Yes, the House should vote to defund Obamacare for the rest of us. If it isn’t good for the goose, it isn’t good for the gander.
The White House has approved a deal that will exempt members of Congress and their staff from some of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, Politico reported late Thursday. Under the law, popularly referred to as Obamacare, lawmakers and their aides were required to source health insurance “created” by the law or offered through one of its exchanges, and without the subsidies they currently enjoy, the members of Congress would have faced thousands of dollars in additional premium payments each year, the report said. However, the Office of Personnel Management now plans to rule that the government can continue to make a contribution to the health-care premiums of the lawmakers and their staff, it said, citing unnamed congressional sources and a White House official.
OFA is now begging for people to sign up for their “Truth Team”. Their reasoning is quite simplistic, and mostly false.
It’s not that they have a better idea to protect people’s health — it’s that they see Obamacare as a significant policy victory for our President, and they want to do everything they can to undermine that. Same old pattern: hurt the President even if it hurts the country.
So, isn’t it “hurting” the Preezy’s policy by giving waivers to Federal employees who like their health care and get to keep it courtesy of US taxpayers?

One would think the bringers of chaos would become more enlightened by realizing they, and the current government, are the reason why very few trust in government or political parties or the media to do the right thing for all of us or even to report it honestly to the American public.
