Where are those ObamaCare premium price cuts?

Want to know how to tell you’re going to have a bad day in Washington? A man walks up to you and says, “Hi, I’m Jason Mattera, and I want to ask you a question.” Actually, since Jason is a friend of mine, that would be a good day for me, but not so much for politicians. Jason, the senior investigative reporter for Talk Radio Network and a New York Times best-selling author, gave Hot Air an exclusive first look at his latest video produced for the Andrea Tantaros Show, which features Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) attempting to walk away from a good question — whatever happened to those health-care premiums price cuts Barack Obama and Democrats promised when they passed ObamaCare three years ago?

McDermott’s answer is priceless:

“Who’s paying you? The cock brothers?” Er, that’s Koch brothers, as Jason corrects McDermott. McDermott tries to first walk away from Jason, but then later engages him by arguing that all other Western nations have national health-insurance management. “Every industrialized country in the world takes care of its people,” McDermott replied, which doesn’t actually answer Jason’s original question but does address his follow-up. Why not just turn around and offer the answer in the first place? Probably because there is no good answer, as premiums spike upward and the promise to bend cost curves downward turn out to be empty.

The only politician who ever actually used the right approach to Jason was Al Franken, who is otherwise well known for refusing to engage with any reporter not from Minnesota. Whether one agrees with Franken or not, he was smart enough to challenge Jason right back.

So God made a Democrat

So God made a Democrat bt Daniel Greenfield

God looked down on Washington D.C. and said “I need someone who will steal morning, noon and night. Who will steal from the rich to give to the poor and steal from the poor to give to the rich and fool them all and keep all the loot.”

So God made a Democrat.

God said, “I need college man to come to a farm and tell the farmer that he can’t feed his hogs with lettuce from his own farm or use the manure from his pigs to grow his lettuce. I need an inspector who will tell him how much he can sell his milk for and warn him that his son riding on the tractor constitutes child labor. I need someone to pay a farmer not to farm so that poor people can’t afford bread.”

So God made a Democrat.

“I want a union organizer who hires non-union picketers to keep workers from working, a politician who fights for the people by taking money from billionaires and a clergyman who worships whoever runs on the party line. I want a banker who fights for the poor and gives to the party and a party that pays the poor man eight times to vote for the banker’s man.”

So God made a Democrat.

“I need someone to retire at 55 with generous benefits from a government job. I need lawmakers who will pass laws without reading them. I need teachers who refuse to teach kids unless they’re paid twice as much as any worker in their city. I need people to sit on commissions and make rules about lines of work that they’ve never been in.”

So God made a Democrat

“I need a Catholic who’s for abortion. A Jew who’s for Palestine. A Mormon who’s against the Church. A Baptist who’s for evolution. A Methodist who doesn’t believe in god. And a Muslim who believes in destroying America.”

So God made a Democrat.

He said, “I need someone who starts all the wars and protests against all the wars. Who is first in line to sign up to fight against his country but comes out as a pacifist when it’s time to defend it. I want war heroes who throw their medals over fences and then gather them up again when it’s time to run for office. I want men who are for everything before they’re against it”

So God made a Democrat.

“I need a working class man who who has never worked a day in his life, but always talks about caring for those who do. I need a man who talks all the time about helping women, blacks, lesbians, Eskimos and Martians get ahead and then drops them like a dirty rag when he has what he wants. A man who gets up at 11:30 in the afternoon to help the less fortunate by passing laws that will make them even less fortunate. A man who takes nine tenths of what’s meant for the poor and lets them have the leftovers.”

So God made a Democrat.

“I need a man who believes in himself too much to take responsibility for anything he did. I need a man who is tolerantly intolerant, who is outraged all day by everything in the world except his own outrageous behavior. I need a man who is for freedom of speech except when he’s offended, for freedom of religion except when he disagrees with it and for the right to bear arms but only for those weapons that existed in 1791.”

So God made a Democrat.

God said, “I need a party of jackasses that will always break through the fence and spoil everything that the farmer grows. I need bad men to test good men and liars, cheats and thieves with clipboards to teach neighbors to stick together against them. I need a man with no more conscience than a rattlesnake leading a band of fools with less sense than sheep. And I need him to keep the farmers and ranchers, the workers and doers on their toes so they always remember that evil never rests and keeping it down can sometimes be the hardest work of all.”

So God made a Democrat.

Gun Control in Australia

Since the Gun Ban in Australia:

When a country takes away guns from its citizens it’s in big trouble as they are finding out in Australia.

  • Armed Robberies increased by 69%
  • Assaults with a Gun increased by 28%
  • Gun Murders increased by 19%
  • Home Invasions increased by 21%

Worth watching, especially when you hear what our politicians are thinking about. I guess I will have to drop Australia from my list of havens to move to.

Only In America

TOP-11 “ONLY IN AMERICA” OBSERVATIONS — BY A CANADIAN*

1) Only in America could the rich people – who pay 86% of all income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.

2) Only in America could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black while only 12% of the population is black

3) Only in America could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

4) Only in America can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

5) Only in America would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege while we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’ become American citizens.

6) Only in America could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be thought of as “extremists.”

7) Only in America could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

8) Only in America could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

9) Only in America could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year – for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.

10) Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.

11) Only in America can a man with no background, no qualifications and no experience … and a complete failure at his job … be reelected.

Joe Biden Calls Michelle Obama’s New Hairstyle Ghetto Chic

Michelle-ObamaBy Mark Donahue

WASHINGTON, DC – At last night’s White House state dinner honoring former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry, Vice President Biden managed to ignite a bit of a firestorm when he addressed the honoree and distinguished guests. After thanking Mayor Barry for his public service and congratulating him on his many accomplishments, the Vice President strayed off-script and embarked on a bewildering oration that left some of the dinner guests uneasy and all of the guests confused. Mr. Biden’s discourse began to meander wildly when his subject matter shifted from Marion Barry to Mrs. Obama’s new haircut.

“I’ve always been a big fan of the Beatles,” Biden said, “so I would be remiss if I didn’t take a moment and compliment the first lady on her lovely new hairstyle. You look beautiful, my dear. That’s a good lookin’ head of hair.”

Mrs. Obama shyly waved as the dinner guests applauded.

“It’s a very hip look,” he continued. “I think in the hood they call that ghetto chic. Am I right?” The Vice President winked at the first lady.

Mrs. Obama forced a smile as a few uncomfortable laughs pierced the silence.

Joe-Biden“And Mr. President, I know you’re excited about that new hairdo. It allows you to cheat on your wife without having to worry about being impeached.” Biden looked at Obama and shrugged. “What? Am I wrong?” A handful of dinner guests chuckled warily before he continued. “I remember a special Halloween a couple of years ago when Jill wore a black wig as part of her costume. Well, let me put it this way, not only did I get to cheat on my wife, but the next day she even washed the stains out of the dress.” Mr. Biden winked at Secretary of State Clinton.

“But in all seriousness folks, there’s nothing like a gal who has the wherewithal to keep herself fresh and new for her husband.” The Vice President smiled at a pretty young woman, “Now, I’m not overlooking you single gals. I haven’t forgotten when I was a randy young lad, prowling the alleyways after the bars had closed in search of that special lady. But as the years have passed I’ve come to understand the importance of being faithful to a woman. Basketball great Wilt Chamberlain once said, I’d rather make love to one woman twenty thousand times than bang twenty thousand of ‘em once.” Biden leaned into the microphone and grinned, “Of course, that’s easy to say after you’ve already tapped the twenty thousand.” He winked at Marion Barry, “My brother Marion knows what I’m sayin’.”

Obama-reprimands-BidenAs dinner guests fidgeted uneasily in their chairs, Vice President Biden continued.

“But in the end, it’s not about the haircuts, the dirty talk or the stilettos. It’s about who a woman is deep down inside. It’s about her values and her personal hygiene. In the end, it’s about a bond of love that’s so strong it enables a man to persevere through those grueling times of despair when he’s jonesing for some stray.”

At that point President Obama began tapping his wine glass with a spoon and the dinner guests politely applauded. Several minutes later dinner guests say Obama pulled Vice President Biden aside and spoke with him privately for several minutes.

Interesting and Scary

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota points out some interesting facts concerning the Presidential election:

  •  Number of States won by: Democrats: 19 Republicans: 29 
  • Square miles of land won by: Democrats: 580,000 Republicans: 2,427,000
  • Population of counties won by: Democrats: 127 Million Republicans: 143 million
  • Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Democrats: 13.2 Republicans: 2.1 

Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory Republicans won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare….”

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation’s population already having reached the “governmental dependency” phase. If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegals and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

New Obamacare Tax

This is just the beginning of the effects of Obamacare! You can still hear the ringing in your ear of Obama saying, “No New Taxes”. ~~~ *M*

Check your receipts – New Obamacare Tax – explanation by Snopes – be sure to read the last two paragraphs.

I did check this out on snopes.com and it is true. Going to get a flat tax for Obamacare whether we like it or not on some purchases.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS.????

The Numbers Are Now Talking

Sometimes you just cannot argue with the numbers. If these numbers are correct and true, the USA has bigger problems on their hands other than who was elected President.

From Bill O’Reilly’s message board:

Most everyone suspected fraud, but these numbers prove it and our government and media refuse to do anything about it.

As each state reported their final election details, the evidence of voter fraud is astounding. Massive voter fraud has been reported in areas of OH and FL, with PA, WI and VA, all are deploying personnel to investigate election results.

Here are just a few examples of what has surfaced with much more to come.

* In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Romney. (A mathematical and statistical impossibility).

* In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations – and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. (Another statistical impossibility).

* In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.

* In St. Lucie County, FL, there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.

* The National SEAL Museum, a polling location in St. Lucie County, FL had a 158% voter turnout.

* Palm Beach County, FL had a 141% voter turnout.

* In Ohio County, Obama won by 108% of the total number of eligible voters.

NOTE: Obama won in every state that did not require a Photo ID and lost in every state that did require a Photo ID in order to vote.

Imagine that!

North Carolina’s VOIP Telephone Company providing Hosted PBX services anywhere

In North Carolina Carolina Digital Phone offers the ability of reducing communication cost by utilizing a SIP enabled IP PBX phone system instead of a traditional PSTN PBX network is the first advantage people think of when switching to an IP based PBX phone system. Essentially phone calls made over an IP network are free. Typically an IP PBX by-passes the wholesale charges made by the incumbent telephone company. (AT&T, Verizone, Qwest, SBC, Bell South and Sprint) This by-pass occurs as the customer is connected to a SIP enabled trunk provider, via an broadband Internet circuit like a data T1 line, as opposed to multiple telephone lines to the incumbent phone company’s switch. The SIP provider will use the Internet to by-pass the long distance and international charges as long as the distant end party is connected through a SIP enable connection. For example, an international call that is placed over an IP PBX will be carried on the IP network from the point of origin to a break outpoint in a foreign country. The SIP provider will incur its capital costs of the IP infrastructure and only the wholesale charge for the foreign national leg of the call. Previously, the service provider would have to pay charges to the local phone company, an international carrier and the foreign carrier. The end result is long distance and international call charges are significantly lower than traditional phone companies.

Benefits of an IP PBX Phone System:
Simplify. An integrated infrastructure that supports ALL forms of communication allows more standardization of equipment and a single cabling infrastructure. This leads to a further overall fall in operational costs.

Flexibility.
An IP Telephony system is based primarily on software rather than hardware, making it easier to alter, up grade and maintain. IP Telephony allows you to safely set up a fully functioning office anywhere a broadband connection is available including the home office and telecommuters.

Scaleable.
Traditional telephone systems are difficult to expand or upgrade, it is easy to outgrow your current system and you may need to replace hardware or, even replace your entire system. IP Telephony systems however are easy to upgrade in line with your company as it grows, as your needs change your IP Telephony system can adapt easily to your changing telecommunications requirements.

Easy Installation.
IP Telephony allows corporate users to use a single high-speed Internet connection for all voice, video, and data communications. This is known as convergence and is one of the primary driving forces behind corporate interest in VoIP. As we have seen VoIP is not just about reducing call costs, it gives companies much more than that. By using a single data network for all communications, it is possible to reduce overall operating costs, increase employee efficiency and allow greater flexibility in communications than ever before.
