Highlights From the Debt Deal

From Breitbart News: Breitbart News has obtained a legislative summary of the provisions in the Senate deal to reopen government and extend the debt ceiling. Breitbart News has also obtained a copy of the legislative text. Currently, Senate staff are able to review the summary and legislative text in the Senate cloakroom, but aren’t allowed to retain a copy or make it public. In the interest of transparency, we have included the document below. As expected, the deal provides full back-pay for furloughed federal workers who haven’t been at work for two weeks. It also provides back-pay, though, for state … Continue reading

Wasteful Government Spending – Grants and Studies

  Within our mammoth sized government with its myriad of agencies and departments, are endless examples of wasteful spending. Here are just two that caught my attention today. Feds Studying How to Use Twitter For ‘Depression Surveillance’ 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. The project, “Utilizing Social Media as a Resource for Mental Health Surveillance,” is costing taxpayers $82,800. While Twitter has been used by government agencies, such as the Secret Service and Department of … Continue reading

Government Shutdown – Why Does No One Want Credit?

Blogger Saltwater has shared some thoughts that I want to share with you in return:   It is day 14 of the government shutdown, and the budget battle continues on Capitol Hill. Well, “budget” battle may not a proper descriptor for the often chaotic scene as lawmakers and administration officials scramble in a most unseemly display of finger pointing. President, Vice President, Senators, Congress members, Democrats, Republicans, Independents, all are engaged in the great “blame” battle. Participants gleefully elbow their way before cameras and microphones to describe for the American populace the evil intransigence of the other side. The public is … Continue reading

If Madoff Went To Jail, So Should Lew.

In a scheme that would make ol’ Bernie -Made-off-with-the-cash proud, Jacob Lew signaled for those paying attention this administration is NOTHING more than criminal. Sadly, NO ONE paid attention to what the asshat was saying.  Lew’s Testimony on Debt Mirrors SEC’s Definition of Ponzi Scheme By Terence P.  Jeffrey from CNSNews.com Typical lying, swindling democrat, Jacob Lew. Our nation is SCREWED with criminals like THIS.   When Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew testified in the Senate Finance Committee on Thursday, urging Congress to enact a new law allowing the administration to increase the federal debt, his description of how the Treasury handles … Continue reading

EBT System Crashed, Now Folks About to Riot

Goodness, you’d think the world has come to an end with all the drama surrounding this computer glitch. People in Ohio, Michigan and 15 other states found themselves temporarily unable to use their food stamp debit-style cards on Saturday, after a routine test of backup systems by vendor Xerox Corp. resulted in a system failure. Xerox announced late in the evening that access has been restored for users in the 17 states affected by the outage, hours after the first problems were reported. It only lasted hours, yet people were about to panic and riot over it. Folks, this is … Continue reading

National Parks Re-Open – With a Catch

From Yahoo News and AP: FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Tourists returned to the Grand Canyon on Saturday after Arizona officials along with several counterparts agreed to a federal government plan to reopen national parks, which had been closed as a result of the partial government shutdown. But the Obama administration’s OK to reopen tourist areas across the nation came with a big caveat: States must foot the bill with money they likely won’t see again. So far, Utah, Colorado, South Dakota, Arizona and New York have agreed to open parks that had been closed since the beginning of the month. … Continue reading

Asshat Alert – Tavis Smiley

Tavis Smiley is a Lefty.  Of that there is no doubt.  He’s also stuck on stupid. SEAN HANNITY:  “My last question to you. You often do these seminars with the state of black America. I’ve watched them on C-Span and different channels, right?” TAVIS SMILEY:  “Right.” HANNITY:  “Are black Americans better off five years into the Obama presidency?” SMILEY:  “Let me answer your question very forthrightly. No, they are not. The data is going to indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category. On that regard, … Continue reading

Kathy ~~~~~~ Updated 4:00 pm CST The unofficial ‘Pace Car’ Red, White and Blue Trucks to match Old Glory More on their way in and the following is … Continue reading

Border Patrol Told To ‘STAND DOWN’ Amidst Government Shutdown

Upon his inauguration, the president takes an oath. This oath of office is a bond with the American people, a responsibility the president assumes to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, our rule of law. The president places his hand on the Bible and is, so long as he remains in office, honor-bound to support the rule of law for the American people. Our radical president, Barack Obama, has been at-odds with the American people since he arrived in the Oval Office. Though he has promised to work for the American people, Obama has continually worked against us. He left … Continue reading

From WND: Boehner waves white flag of surrender House GOP outlines deal to avert default, end shutdown   House Republicans were in a holding pattern Friday, awaiting a response from the Obama administration to a proposal to lift the debt ceiling, end the government shutdown and set up six weeks of budget talks.

Armed Guards Use Gestapo Tactics on Seniors at Yellowstone

Newburyportnews.com: It seems like every time I turn around, I see another story of obama’s henchmen mistreating people, particularly senior citizens.

Our government has hit an all time low. From Today.com: Shutdown denies death benefits to families of fallen soldiers   The shutdown of the federal government is now affecting some families when they are most vulnerable, denying them benefits to help with funeral expenses of loved ones killed while serving the country.
