Profiles In Courage

Some of what you didn’t see because…..well…..because it doesn’t fit the Obama narrative;

We will not be ignored!

http://legalinsurrection.com/2013/10/liberation-of-wwii-memorial/   Vets March 3

Yes, those men saluting are the ‘terrorists’, ‘anarchists’, and ‘mercenaries’ Obama and the loons in Congress (RINO and Progs) have been warning us about, ‘homegrown terrorists’.

“Mr. President, you have a problem”.   Vet March 4

We know you’re hiding in there ……..are you listening?  Vet March 5

After feeling some discouragement over the politics taking shape in DC, this heartened me.    Return to sender

This whole ‘government shutdown’ thing is beginning to take its toll.  One of the best things that has happened, which has also cheered me up greatly, is not seeing MO everywhere we look and not hearing from her on a daily basis telling us how to live, eat, exercise and raise our kids.

 It is with a heavy heart that I advise you of a government shutdown that will have a deep and lasting impact on your lives: LADY M’S ORGANIC GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL IS WITHERING ON THE VINE!

That’s right! MO got Barry-caded!  No more school children laboring in “The Garden of Good and Evil” for the benefit of the elite crowd in Big White.  shutdown day 9 toms and basil gone native copy_thumb[2]  MOTUS has the scoop…

Michelle Obama emerges for the  first time since the shutdown began

Awwwww…she had to cancel her Oct 11 funraising trip for the DNC…..yes, a funraiser

More bureaucratic bungling…..IRS “decides” who gets the “additional child tax credit”…..brought to you by the letters F – R – A – U – D and the letters ITIN…

Bungling bureaucrats dole out billions in tax  credits to illegal immigrants

Billions in payments overlooked by agency’s leaders,  Congress

Dems and their media backers want a collapse of the markets ” as a way to “shake things loose inside the GOP.”

When does Wall Street cast its vote? Bipartisan meetings are nice, and new plans that depend on the other side budging certainly can’t hurt at this stage of a standoff. But there may be only one way to jolt the system: SELL. Conversations with Republican strategists in recent days suggest that only a major event, most likely in the form of a major southward turn in the markets, could shake things loose inside the GOP conference enough to push away from the current crises. That’s what will draw constituent phone calls, and what will turn anger into action – more so, certainly, than vague threats of primary challenges engineered by business interests. The markets could be the 12th man, and the players are weary enough that they may not be able to draw any inspiration from elsewhere in this stadium.

Including the most extreme left-wing partisans, this is the first time I’m aware of when anyone in media or politics have openly encouraged market investors to intentionally create a panic.

He who laughs last, laughs best…..the new urban legend, Obamacare enrollees.

Next  April, just as income tax returns are about to be filed, with required paperwork  indicating the taxpayer has health insurance acceptable to the feds, there are  likely to be millions of people claiming they tried to enroll, but could  not.

At  that point, the Republicans who tried to delay the implementation of Obamacare  by a year are going to look pretty good. No matter what the media generated  polls are saying right now.

He  who laughs last, laughs best.

It  is widely believed that Americans hate their health insurance companies. But  just wait until the far less competent, impossible-to-fire federal bureaucrats  are fining people for not buying health insurance they are unable to purchase  because the damn website doesn’t work.

It’s a good day!

open thread….rant to your heart’s content

  1. I’m going to have to be honest on this- The First Lady can haul her famous can out to that garden and do it herself, like the rest of us.
    If I can break a nail, so can she.

    • Gave up on “nails” in June… LOL 😀

  2. California Officials Raid Offices Of Obama Mega Donor Kareem Ahmed…..medical management?

    The Orange County, Calif. District Attorney’s Office this week raided the offices of Landmark Medical Management, whose president and CEO, Kareem Ahmed, was one of the largest individual financial backers of President Obama’s 2012 re-election effort

  3. Nothing is “settled” law…..nothing,

    “Big Media and Barack Obama have consistently sold themselves the lie that ObamaCare is popular. It’s not. ObamaCare must be stopped and Republicans are doing what the American people want. Recently Todd Purdum (husband of Dee Dee Myers) who used to write “news” articles not opinion pieces for the New York Times went hysterically berserk against Republicans for fighting against ObamaCare and blaming the GOP for the “shutdown”. A day later Purdum took sedatives and wrote an article which merits attention. Purdum, after his breakdown, wrote about why Obama and ObamaCare are in the trouble they are in:

    “Twenty years ago, when he was trying to persuade Bill and Hillary Clinton that universal health care was a politically unrealistic goal, the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan repeated one insistent warning: Sweeping, historic laws don’t pass barely. “They pass 70-to-30,’’ he said, “or they fail.”

    Four years ago, when he was trying to persuade Barack Obama that he would pay a terrible price for jamming health care reform through a reluctant Congress on a partisan vote, White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel begged his boss to settle for a vastly scaled-down plan.”

  4. Waiting for 2012

    Love the way they just pull out plants instead of treating them, and replace them with mature, full-grown ones (wonder if the plants had to go before a death panel first? :-)). These people don’t know squat about vegetable gardening. This proves that the garden is more for show, than substance–just like them. Any normal vegetable gardener who is really growing them for food would try to save the plants–yanking them out is a last resort, at least in my plots.

    What a waste. I thought MOO was so into the gardening thing–why can’t she pick the darned stuff herself, and give it to the newly-created homeless, who are so due to her husband’s policies?

    • Especially as it seems the White House vegetables seem to grow completely washed and in their own little Pier One little baskets. I’d try to save every plant like that I could.

      • Me too! LOL 😀

    • Butt, butt…she can’t help it……she’s Barry-caded in the White House …….and Barry-caded from the garden….who’s she going to call “mean” now? Sure isn’t the “country”.
      That food could go to homeless shelters and food banks. Butt, if that were to happen, BO might have one of his Prissy Tantrums.

    • I love the title from Foodorama…the garden is wrecked! It’s wrecked! What a strange word to use…I envision little squirrels moving in with shovels and hoes. I would like to see the mandate that prohibits the picking of vegetables…

      • Petty Prissy Preezy “mandates” at will. He’s already broken the Obamacare Law by exemptions and in 2014 a deal with the unions to exempt them as well…..

      • So…. rodents that my dog barks his head of at are better at attending to the affairs of the White House then the residents of said White House? Good to Know.

        She could at least put in a big grinning photo-op but attempting to teach the squirrels calisthenics, but then, they would probably give her the same nonplussed expression we do.

        • As soon as I read “squirrels calisthenics” I thought of those squirrel-proof bird feeders…

          • Too bad we can’t commission such a device for liberals, but then again, the squirrels are actually working to get something.

          • LOL 😀
            As excited as the Progs get over seeing a treasury full of other people’s money…..

  5. Democrat overreach? Oh yeah!! Moving the goal posts again…BO and Reid play games with the world economy too!

    A two-week-long partial government shutdown originally blamed on a conservative Republicans’ demands for Obamacare to be defunded is now stalling because liberal Democrats want to see an end to planned spending cuts, it emerged today.

    Obama has consistently insisted that he is not willing to pay a Republican ‘ransom’ as the deadlock continued but the reversal will see many Americans wondering who’s the real aggressor in the fiscal ‘hostage-taking’ that the White House has decried for nearly a month.

    A budget impasse earlier in the year led to the so-called budget ‘sequester’ which walled off tens of billions of dollars in planned spending. Now Senate Democrats are demanding its complete rollback, in an audacious move that many in the GOP are seeing as a greedy overreach.

  6. I suppose the Fed will do an ‘intervention’ …..but diagnosis of depression using Twitter? How ‘crazy’ is that?

    “The federal government is studying how to use Twitter for surveillance on depressed people.

    The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) began a study financed by the National Institutes of Health last month that will provide “population level depression monitoring” through the social media site.

    Will expand monitoring of social networks for public health reasons
    Twitter preferred to phone surveys because of real time data and multilingual sources
    Algorithms to determine if twitter user depressed”

    http://freebeacon.com/

    • Oh, dear- this will surely be amusing. My brother and I use Twitter as an instant message system for old in jokes. We keep shouldering each other on through this lousy economy. I’m positive the gestapo will see naught but insanity, being that they have no sense of humor.

  7. YEP, she is definitely running……. BENGHAZI!

    “Hillary Clinton disses Biden saying that she pushed for the bin Laden raid but the Vice President was against it as the race for 2016 starts to heat up”

  8. House votes 11 times to re-open gov…….BO and Reid say “NO!” killing the bills.

    http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2013/10/15/the-house-gop-voted-11-times-to-reopen-the-government/

  9. LOL 😀 Laws are for ‘little people’….. Clinton has zero diplomatic immunity…… private citizen now.

  10. Meant as a joke? I doubt it!

    After months of anguished debate over mass shootings, gun control and Second Amendment rights, the Justice Department finds itself on the defensive after a training manual surfaced that suggests federal agents could face a firing squad for leaking government secrets.

    The online manual for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — complete with a photo of a turn-of-the-century firing squad — was obtained by The Washington Times from a concerned federal law enforcement official, and it immediately drew protests from watchdogs who said it showed a lack of sensitivity to gun violence and the continuing hostile environment toward whistleblowers.

  11. Waiting for 2012

    This is off-topic, but I wanted to keep you up-to-date on a previous comment I made recently about my husband’s job problems. The place was bought 3 weeks ago by another company; in that 2 weeks, they lost between 2000-3000 of their accounts, and there’s almost no freight arriving (it’s a trucking company). I think he’s smart to search for another job. Well, today, the place he wants to work for (his old boss is there, and has been asking for him) gave him an interview today! He’d have to accept a pay cut of $3.00 less an hour, and now work 6 days a week, but it’s something. One bad thing: they are Teamsters…oh well…

    • Sometimes we have to take a rock in the hard place, Waiting. As I find myself saying more and more at our nightly dinner, “It’s better than a stick in the eye.”

    • I think that is great news. It is always smart to keep looking out for yourself, and even though he is taking a job making less and working more, the bottom line is that he will have a job. I hope he continues to look, but at the end of the day, he will have income and be able to continue to provide for you and your family. I am in a similar situation where I have a very part time (1 day a week) job, and I fill in when I can. I make a fraction of what i used to, but I am grateful for that job b/c I have enough to buy food and pay my student loans. I am always looking, but in this economy I am grateful to have some $$ coming in. Congratulations to your hubby!

      • things will improve as soon as we get that power junkie Obama out of Big White!
        Love your optimistic attitude…..way to go!

    • Oh yes he is smart to do that.
      We closed down our business. Hubby now works for a contractor. A little less income but, the headaches are gone now. I still pull down a few projects, mostly by word of mouth. Only working part time suits me enormously. More time to do other things I’ve put off doing forever….. lol
      I’m so happy for you both…..losing sleep and stressing out is no way to live. 😉
