Bill Whittle: The End of the Beginning

In classic Bill Whittle style he describes this deceitful administration and how easy it was to fool the American people. (hat-tip Gunny G at the Anti-Liberal Zone) ~ Hardnox

Another ObamaCare Surprise: Estate Recovery

From The New American: Sofia Prins and Gary Balhorn were about to sign applications for free coverage under Washington State’s Medicaid program — recently expanded under ObamaCare — when Sofia began reading the fine print: If you’re over age 55, the state of Washington will bill your estate for your health expenses when you die. So much for “free.” Prior to ObamaCare, state Medicaid programs (enacted in 1965 and expanded in 1993) offered help to poor people who couldn’t afford health coverage but required states to recover their health costs from their estates when they died. However, state exemptions for personal goods and residences meant that … Continue reading

Funny Friday – Dec. 20, 2013

  —oo—   Two hunters named Bubba and Bud, hired a pilot to fly them into the Canadian wilderness, where they managed to bag two big Bull Moose. As they were loading the plane to return, the pilot said the plane could take only the hunters, their gear and one Moose. The hunters objected strongly, saying, “Last year we shot two, and the pilot let us take them both…and he had exactly the same airplane as yours.” Reluctantly, the pilot, not wanting to be outdone by another bush pilot, gave in, and everything was loaded. However, even under full power, the little plane couldn’t handle … Continue reading

Apolitical Aphorisms

If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates.~Jay Leno ~ The problem with political jokes is they get elected.~Henry Cate, VII ~ We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office~Aesop ~ If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn’t be any inducement to go to heaven. ~ Will Rogers ~ Politicians are the same all over.

Closed Testimony Appears To Bolster Claims Benghazi Response Inadequate

From FOX News: The closed-door testimony of CIA staff and contractors appears to bolster claims that more could have been done by U.S. personnel to respond to the scene of the Benghazi terror attack. Recent media reports have contradicted claims that U.S. personnel were given stand-down orders and kept from responding to the scene — but sources on the ground that night tell Fox News that not only were they given, but they were given in multiple locations, as Fox News has previously reported. “The whole issue about stand down orders is not an issue,” said Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., … Continue reading

Can You Polish A Turd?

We often use the “turd polishing” term here at ‘Nox and Friends (Clyde and I being the most egregious offenders) with regards to the Left and how they cover for their leader “The Won”, therefore I went on a mission to discover if it can actually be done. Turns out Mythbusters didn’t use Lefty poop.  Guess it can’t be done. ~ Hardnox

New Creepy-Ass Zero Pic

This new portrait of “The Won” is located in the U.S. Embassy in London. On the left is Abraham Lincoln.  On the right is George Washington.  Notice how “The Won” dwarfs two of the greatest presidents in U.S. history. This is megalomania on display. For obamabots, yes, you too can get your copy for a mere $100,000.  Proceeds go to the Obama Victory fund. Hurry there are only 100. ~ Hardnox  

Volunteer Firehouses May Close Due To ZeroCare

More unintended consequences of the law that few read. Municipalities across the country will now take it up the tailpipe again to cover these additional costs naturally resulting in higher taxes for all taxpayers. Thanks a lot democrats! ~ Hardnox

Conversation With Lefties

Christmas time is a season of parties.  On Saturday evening I attended a dinner party at a friend’s house.  The food was great, drinks were plenty, and eventually the tongues got loose. After dinner, I quickly discovered that I was in the company of several lefties (guests of my friend’s wife) as several others had left to tend to their kids at home.  Crap I thought.. several college professors, an economist, a few artsy fartsies, and two former hippies… shit, I’ve gotta get out of here but promised myself that I would behave and bug out at the first opportunity without … Continue reading

Nine Things That Will Disappear

Nine Things That Will Disappear In Our Lifetime. Whether these changes are good or bad depends in part on how we adapt to them. But, ready or not, here they come. 1. The Post Office – Get ready to imagine a world without the post office. They are so deeply in financial trouble that there is probably no way to sustain it long term. Email, Fed Ex, and UPS have just about wiped out the minimum revenue needed to keep the post office alive. Most of your mail every day is junk mail and bills. 2. The Check – Britain is already … Continue reading
