Students and parents at a Colorado high school are outraged after administrators turned down their request for a spirit week day honoring America because it might offend non-Americans.
“They said they didn’t want to offend anyone from other countries or immigrants,” a 16-year-old member of the student council told me. “They just really did not want to make anyone feel uncomfortable.”
Good grief. I swear, these type of people must be addicted to stupid pills and spend all of their off time orally satisfying their dealers so they can have their next fix before the dumb wears off.
Media Matters is actually claiming that all of the instances of people losing their health insurance are either ‘misleading’ or lies.
And people actually take these shysters for a real news source.
What a bunch of dewy, goo-swirling lapdogs.
Health plans are sending hundreds of thousands of cancellation letters to people who buy their own coverage, frustrating some consumers who want to keep what they have and forcing others to buy more costly policies.
The main reason insurers offer is that the policies fall short of what the Affordable Care Act requires starting Jan. 1. Most are ending policies sold after the law passed in March 2010. At least a few are cancelling plans sold to people with pre-existing medical conditions.
An estimated 14 million people purchase their own coverage because they don’t get it through their jobs. Calls to insurers in several states showed that many have sent notices.
Florida Blue, for example, is terminating about 300,000 policies, about 80 percent of its individual policies in the state. Kaiser Permanente in California has sent notices to 160,000 people – about half of its individual business in the state. Insurer Highmark in Pittsburgh is dropping about 20 percent of its individual market customers, while Independence Blue Cross, the major insurer in Philadelphia, is dropping about 45 percent.
People with preexisting conditions are losing their health insurance thanks to ObamaCare. Imagine that.
Great job as always, Obama supporters. You slow thinking mutts.
MSNBC Claims It’s The Republican’s Fault The ObamaCare Launch Was a Disaster….
Oh, MSNBC. We expect you to cry about racism at every turn, to support jihadists because of ‘culture’ or ‘Islamophobia’ or something and kneel over and pucker up everytime Obama twerks in your general direction but no one in their right mind can even pretend to think that the Republicans had anything to do with that cluster that is ObamaCare.
I wonder what MSNBC watching liberals think of their ‘news’ station treating them like their chin drooling idiots who will believe anything they tell them.
…Occupy Wall Street (or whatever they called themselves that day) climbed out of the gutters and began infecting parks, capitals and other places en mass.
The media celebrated the lice ridden malcontents and touted them in headlines and magazine covers as heroes and patriotic young Americans.
Despite the rash of arrests, incidents of rape, child abuse, drug use and the covering up of crimes, the media proudly continued to blow the trumpet for them, making their cause a nation wide, if not world wide, clarion call for justice and fairness. Nancy Pelosi even went so far as to publicly say, “God bless them for their spontaneity. It’s independent … it’s young, it’s spontaneous, and it’s focused.”
When protesters urinated or defecated on the steps of banking institutions or police cars, the media hailed them as champions of the downtrodden and valiant warriors who stood up to “the man”.
The media kept up their worship of the unruly and discontented until their failed crusade gasped it last useless breath.
Fast forward two years.
A failed President reels in amateurish indecision. Unwillingly or incapable of providing leadership to the nation, and Congress specifically, the inexperienced rookie falls back on the only tactics he has ever known: bullying, threats and forcing pain on people less powerful than him.
In a third world effort to exert his dominance, the paper tiger unleashes a series of punishments upon an unwitting country. Knowing that aging veterans are scheduled to visit a memorial that they fought for, and a resting place for the memory of their brothers who died on our behalf, the tantrum throwing man-child slammed the gates closed in their faces.
What the Emperor with no clothes did not realize, (and how could he since he had never known or spent a day serving his country), was that these elderly men had looked death in the face, stared down the barrel of smoking machine guns, had smelt the cordite of smoke and gunpowder while their faces dripped with the coppery scent of their friends’ blood. Gates were not going to stop this possibly final tribute and the veterans pushed through.
Nary a peep was made from the media. Talk through the halls of Capital Hill was little more than a whisper of how a gang of old men dared to defy the rule makers of the land.
Not to be bested, Lord Farquaad had the barriers re-erected and reinforced with wire, ironically, making the Memorial more reminiscent of Nazi Germany than 21st Century America.
Then came the Vietnam Memorial veterans. More warriors that stood up and said that the memory of their fallen brethren was more important than cheap political points made by impotent men.
Learning from the ‘mistake’ they made with the older veterans, the administration of weak willed men hiding behind curtains decided to send a message.
Responding with dictatorial greed, the posers ordered their men, who obviously forgot the oath they took upon assuming their positions, to take these men into custody. Arrest them and lock them away for nothing more serious than trespassing which, in a sane world, would have meant no more than a citation and a request to leave the area.
But this was no longer a sane world and a message had to be sent…so they were rounded up, cuffed and placed in a wagon to be herded off.
And where was the media to stand for the courage and just actions of these men who had fought for their country and were, once again, standing for the right of men to be free?
Anywhere but there.
And this is what it’s like to now ‘live’ in the country once known as ‘the home of the free’.
Another day, another leftist wishing death to the children of people he doesn’t agree with.
By the way, Allan Brauer is the communications chair for the Democratic Party of Sacramento, Calif.
Such tolerant, peaceful, loving and open minded people, those liberals.
This is disgusting…
Today the parents of Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, who were abandoned by their government and left to die in Benghazi, were scheduled to speak in front of a House Hearing on Benghazi.
In a complete show of disrespect, and displaying an overwhelming amount of apathy and disregard for the feelings of these parents and the sacrifice their sons made, every House Democrat except two of them….every damn one but two!!….walked off the House floor just as the parents entered to speak.
They turned their backs on grieving parents of American heroes and walked out!!
Here are the cowards who spit on the graves of men who dedicated and gave their lives to their country:
Eleanor Holmes Norton
Gerald E. Connolly
Michelle Lujan Grisham
William Lacy Clay
I have no words for cowards like these.
May their souls rot in Hell for all eternity.
Obama’s Organizing For Action Chairman, Jim Messina, on Republican efforts to defund ObamaCare.
But, Jimmie, that’s what they’re trying to do by defunding ObamaCare. I don’t see what your problem is.
A projected $650 million in welfare benefits will be distributed to illegal alien parents in 2013, county officials said Monday.
In case any of you were wondering where your tax dollars are going.
Federal law enforcement sources told CNN Tuesday that authorities have recovered three weapons from the scene of the mass shooting, including one — a shotgun — that investigators believe Alexis brought in to the compound. The other two weapons, which sources say were handguns, may have been taken from guards at the Navy complex.
The sources, who have detailed knowledge of the investigation, cautioned that initial information that an AR-15 was used in the shootings may have been incorrect. It is believed that Alexis had rented an AR-15, but returned it before Monday morning’s shootings. Authorities are still investigating precisely how many weapons Alexis had access to and when.
Of course, the anti-gun wackjobs won’t let a tiny thing like facts stand in the way of their civilian controlling agenda.
President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to “vetted” opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.
Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad’s regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah.
In case anyone was still wondering if Obama was intentionally providing aid and comfort to our enemies.
"After extending health care coverage to many of its part-time employees for years, Trader Joe’s has told workers who log fewer than 30 hours a week that they will need to find insurance on the Obamacare exchanges next year, according to a confidential memo from the grocer’s chief executive."
Oh look! Another one.
And liberals claim to have the welfare of the working man at heart. Goobers.
SeaWorld has announced plans to slash thousands of part-time workers’ hours to no more than 28 hours a week. Reducing part-time workers’ current 32 hours a week down to 28 weekly hours will avoid Obamacare’s 30-hour full-time trigger that forces employers to provide comprehensive health insurance benefits or face up to $3,000 per employee in fines.
But I thought it was “free”! That’s what all the brain dead leftist Troglodytes told me over and over and over again.
Way to go, Obama voters….you gullible sacks of rusty doorknobs.
At 8:46 a.m. on September 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight 11 was crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City by terrorists. Eleven years later on September 11, 2012, events unfolded in Benghazi, Libya, that would ultimately leave a U.S. diplomatic facility gutted and four Americans dead. As of 8:46 AM today, the U.S. State Department had not acknowledged either anniversary.
The silence from the State Department, however, continues. There is nothing on Wednesday’s public schedule of the State Department regarding any observance, memorial, or remembrance of either 9/11 or Benghazi. There are no mentions of 9/11, Benghazi, or Ambassador Christopher Stevens any time recently on the State Department website, the Facebook page, or the Twitter account.
Recalling the events of last week, 62-year-old Adnan Nasrallah said an explosion destroyed an archway just across from his house that leads into the town.
"I saw people wearing Al-Nusra headbands who started shooting at crosses," said Nasrallah, a Christian.
One of them “put a pistol to the head of my neighbour and forced him to convert to Islam by obliging him to repeat ‘there is no God but God’.”
"Afterwards they joked, ‘he’s one of ours now’."
Nasrallah spent 42 years running a restaurant — which he named Maalula — in the US state of Washington and returned to Syria just before the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad broke out in March 2011.
"I had a great dream. I came back to my country to promote tourism. I built a guesthouse and spent $2,000 installing a windmill to provide electricity in the town.
"My dream has gone up in smoke. Forty-two years of work for nothing," he lamented.
But worse, for him, was what he said was the reaction of his Muslim neighbours when the town was seized by the rebels.
"Women came out on their balconies shouting with joy, and children… did the same. I discovered that our friendship was superficial."
But Nasrallah’s sister, Antoinette, refused to condemn everyone, saying recent arrivals in the town were to blame.
"There are refugees from Harasta and Douma (in the suburbs of Damascus) that we have taken in, and they are spreading the poison of hatred, especially among the younger generation," she said.
Another resident, Rasha, recounted how the jihadists had seized her fiance Atef, who belonged to the town’s militia, and brutally murdered him.
"I rang his mobile phone and one of them answered," she said.
"Good morning, Rashrush," a voice answered, using her nickname. "We are from the Free Syrian Army. Do you know your fiance was a member of the shabiha (pro-regime militia) who was carrying weapons, and we have slit his throat."
The man told her Atef had been given the option of converting to Islam, but had refused.
"Jesus didn’t come to save him," he taunted.
Obama’s allies continue to show why we fight. Now if only we had leaders who had the moral courage to do so instead of spitting on the graves of Americans who have died in this struggle by supporting and arming the very same savages who want to kill us.
