I’ll tell you what sup.

Life imitates Camus!

A Chinese city has been sealed off and 151 people have been placed in quarantine since last week after a man died of bubonic plague

 

Ugh.  These are people who have less regard for life than French colonizers, that’s not going to end well.

 

So not only is Tsar Putin I’s state media (they’re like MSNBC  and CNN but they have to be forced to lie for their Dear Leader) lying ridiculously about his Cossacks shooting down a civilian plane, but now he’s sick and tired of Teh Peepul acting all upset and stuff.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed several laws on July 22, increasing liability for separatism and violation of regulations for holding rallies.

 

I just hope Obama does not get any ideas on that.

You have to like the bit about cracking down on “calls for separatism” as he’s fomenting separatism in other countries. That’s a nice touch.

Speaking of evil empires,

Identifying Backdoors, Attack Points, and Surveillance Mechanisms in iOS Devices… In his talk Zdziarski demonstrates “a number of undocumented high-value forensic services running on every iOS device” and “suspicious design omissions in iOS that make collection easier.”

So what do you think, murderous, commie, Chinese dictators having their slaves put it in or just Apple being Apple?

They’ve both been watching Google pretty closely after all so that’s a tough call.

 

A rare disagreement between Veeshir and Israel.

Israeli envy says country deserves Nobel Prize for “restraint”

Really? You people want to be grouped with the Arafish, Kofi, What-Genocide?, Annan and Obama? I respect Israel far too much to want that to happen.

You’ve seen that commercial about the “Framily Plan” where Gordahn shows up uninvited? Well, in real life his name is J. Effin Kerry.

Michael Oren, who until recently served as Israel’s ambassador in Washington, said Monday that US envoy John Kerry was coming to the region despite Sunday’s hot-mic incident making it clear that he had not been invited.

Okay, that’s funny and shows that, despite the faux pas on the Nobel, Israel still has its head on straight.

I wonder if that had something to do with the Obama admin canceling flights to Israel? He’s petty enough for that so…

 

This one is pretty darn funny too.

A conservative of color had the unmitigated gall to show up to a Democratic Front Group’s gathering (NAACP edition) and was rightly attacked in a vicious manner, but that’s just expected and not funny.

This quote from the article is what’s funny.

*Note: FreedomWorks is not funded by the Koch brothers.

Heh. disassociating themselves from an evil empire is kinda funny.

 

Geez, I just want to send the “children”, their parents and gang-banger friends back to their own countries, but Pelosi apparently wants us to crucify them.  She wants us to treat them like Jesus.

Hard core but probably a little overreactive.

 

I don’t get the problem with this.

Stoners in Colorado are using their EBT cards (not food stamps, just regular welfare) at pot dispensaries.

If it’s the Most Evil Thing In The World to drug test welfare recipients and pot is legal, why should anybody have any problem with this?

 

I haven’t seen this link any where for a long time so I’ll post it.

If you’re so inclined, these guys deliver pizzas to IDF soldiers on the frontline. Pizza for the IDF you can attach a message if you’re so inclined. .

So dat’s what sup.

I just tried to watch the IRS lying piece of shit explain how all those emails were lost and won’t be coming back.

To quote one of my favorite Congresscritters:

YOU LIE!!!!!!

 

I worked for the Dept of Commerce for nearly 12 years, I could check my email on any computer within my dept.

Emails were stored on what they called the “H:” drive, not the C: drive. That’s how the gov’t does it. They are required to save those emails so they all put them on servers.

 

 

In other words, the emails were not stored on my computer, they were stored on a server.

Everybody who’s trying to defend the IRS is a lying sack of shit or an ignorant, credulous tool.

There is no other option.

 

Disband the IRS. Put everybody above GS-12 in jail.

Nothing else will be good enough as we have the Federal Gov’t going after private citizens.

That is absolutely unacceptable.

In conclusion,

FUCK YOU IRS, Obama, Holder, every Dem congresscritter who used the IRS to attack their enemies (Not furrin enemies, domestic enemies, i.e. Me) and every GOP asshole because they’re not doing shit and aren’t going to do shit.

Added, Oh, and fuck you Minitrue for not just not covering this, but for actively covering it up.

You pieces of shit are working overtime to help enslave me, I am not happy about that.

 

The Rule of Law is done, the experiment that is America is closer to ending than at any time since the Civil War (and yes, I include Lincoln’s actions in that statement).

We Are Fucked.

And I’m fucking pissed off.

I love my country and I’m watching smug, ignorant, commie assholes fucking destroy it.

Fuck.

 

UPDATE:

Dear people interviewing Democratic spokestools, know your shit. When they say, “Liberals were targeted by the IRS too!!!” you really need to do some research so you can call them liars.

But nobody does that anymore, that’s why so many of our fine, Democratic pols feel they can lie with impunity, because they fucking can.

Dick Cheney tells the truth and he’s viciously attacked by everybody including OUTRAGE!!!!!!!monger Megyn Kelly, but Obama’s spokestool can lie and not get called on it.

 

Chicago, Chicago Machine Politics I mean.

(Democrati-operative V)Prosecutors allege Gov. Scott Walker was at the center of an effort to illegally coordinate fundraising among conservative groups to help his campaign and those of Republican state senators fend off recall elections during 2011 and ’12, according to documents unsealed Thursday.

And who was he supposedly working with? I guess Satan….Dick Cheney was unavailable so they went for Beelzebub….Karl Rove

The documents include an excerpt from an email in which Walker tells Karl Rove…

 

So what’s happening with this Chicago-political-machine attack?

“It’s pretty clear, you’ve got two judges, both a state judge and a federal judge, who said that they didn’t buy into the argument that has been presented at this point,”

It worked with DeLay and Stevens in Alaska, bring spurious charges right before an election so the opponent can, more in sorrow than anger, run attack ads about his allegedly felonious opponent.

These prosecutors need to pay a serious price, like losing the right to be an attorney and, preferably, jail-time.

 

But, as with the IRS, they will not pay a price. If you have a (D) after your name you pay no price for breaking laws, so long as you’re extending the Dem’s rule.

What happened with Menenedez? Well, they’ll get right on prosecuting him. Probably right after he dies of old age.

How about Nancy Pelosi?

  Miss Nancy got an earmark to improve the pier area in San Francisco.  And guess what?  By sheer luck , her husband owned 5 properties in that immediate area, all of which increased in value.  Was it also sheer luck that after the democrats took control of the house, that they changed the rules to allow members to ask for earmarks for projects that benefit themselves as long as they benefit others at the same time.  Under those rules graft becomes unchecked.

Paul Pelosi, husband of Nancy bought between 1 million and 5 million dollars in stock in an IPO for visa.  (Net worth of the Pelosi’s is 21 million, so 5 million would be 1/4 of their entire wealth). At the same time, Miss Nancy blocked legislation that would have hurt the value of her stock.  This felonious action was documented by 60 Minutes….

 

 

And Nancy’s Amazing Obamacare Waivers for high-end businesses in San Fransisco?

How about Harry Reid?

They are not even investigated by law enforcement and yet if you have an (R) after your name you can expect a regular proctological exam by Minitrue and politicized prosecutors.

The part that bothers me the most is that most people, including all the talking heads not dumb as Shepard Smith or his role-model, Geraldo, know this is going on and they don’t say anything.

The lefty ones think it’s funny, the R ones know better than to notice reality if they want any good cocktail party invites.

Remember that rule-of-law? Yeah, that was pretty cool.

As I’ve already stated, nobody’s hindsight is 20/20 except mine and intelligent people’s*.

I’m not trying to pick on Glenn Beck, I’m just using him because that’s the link I had open.

It could have been a bunch of other people who you are probably reading too. Or rather, instead of reading here.

I’ve been seeing people say we should never have gone into Iraq.

 

No.

Longer version below the fold.

(more…)

Republicans should really focus on the IRS tea party targeting scandal and put Benghazi on the back burner. Look, Benghazi should have been a major scandal. But it wasn’t. And to borrow a phrase, what difference – at this point – does it make?

They fucked up and people died. Then they crassly lied about it so they could win an election. Then they lied about lying about it. And not a lot of people really cared. While it is true that they were lying about what precipitated the deaths of several Americans, it’s not like they wanted that to happen. They were just lying after the fact of the colossal, deadly fuck-up.

I don’t mean to dismiss the malfeasance here. Putting on my best Samuel Jackson voice, I hope they burn in hell. News Flash: The Obama administration lies about shit and doesn’t care if people die.

Film at eleven.

Benghazi was mostly incompetence, covered up by lies. The IRS … now there’s something you can sink your teeth into. That is flat out corruption. That is the willful use of the power of the state to stifle the opposition. That’s pretty plainly totalitarian. Lois Lerner could be frog-marched to prison. AWESOME. And this Elijah Cummings angle is pretty promising too.

What are we expecting in the Benghazi investigation? To find out that Susan Rice lied? OF COURSE SHE FUCKING LIED! And water is wet, and bears shit in the woods.

On the other hand, folks going to fucking jail? Sign me up for that.

I mentioned in my earlier post that our insurance was going up due to the ACA. It’s not!

Instead of our rates going up, our insurance is being completely discontinued. Under the new regulations, a group policy cannot consist of two members if they are husband and wife – even if the two members hold two different policies within the same group. We were advised by Anthem that we should go through the exchanges and purchase individual health insurance.

There’s a problem with this, though – my husband works for a school district that requires employees to either buy health insurance through the district or show documentation annually that he is insured through another group policy. We started purchasing a group policy through our LLC several years ago when the cheapest policy, through Kaiser and after the district contribution, was more than $1000 a month.

At that time, insurance for our family through a small business group policy was just under $600 a month. It wasn’t a great policy, but we put aside the $400 a month difference. Most years we saw a profit from this. We had one catastrophic year where we paid more in out-of-pocket expenses by about $500 than what we’d saved for the year. Forming an LLC, moonlighting to supplement a school district income, and purchasing a small business group policy has become a not uncommon practice among the employees who don’t have a spouse with a job that provides health insurance. It’s certainly been cheaper and has allowed employees the freedom to choose their health insurance and choose how much to budget for insurance.

Over the years, our small business group policy has risen in cost to $950 a month. The not quite comparable district policy is nearly $1500 a month after the district’s contribution. Because my husband is a technical worker and not a teacher, he is not represented by a union and so this is about $100 more than what teachers will pay per month.

Thanks to Obamacare, we are being forced to pay over $500 more a month for health insurance so we can keep the doctors we like. We’re losing our deductible contribution for the year since our deductible resets in January but our health insurance resets in July. I can’t for the life of me figure out what we’re gaining from this. And I don’t know how forcing mom-and-pop businesses out of group plans that most closely match their demographic and in to policies that are expensive enough to close a barely-break-even business is helping small business, or the economy.

IMG_20140331_192853resized

The ‘plan design that most closely matches our current coverage’ looks to be $400 a month more, which is a nearly 40% increase. Add on to that the 10% increase to our current price that we’ve seen every year, and our health insurance will have more than doubled since Obama took office. The differences I’m seeing between the two plans is a $10 decrease in office visit copay, and an increase in deductible of $4000 – per family, which means that since we’re considered two families for the purpose of having a group policy, we’ll be seeing an increase in deductible of $8,000.  This is the cheapest group policy I’ve found that will allow us to keep our doctors; Kaiser Permanente is marginally less expensive but given our experience with them (there’s nothing less inspiring of confidence then hearing “I don’t know” when you ask how to treat your child’s fairly common medical condition if you’re not within fast driving distance of an emergency room) we won’t be returning to Kaiser.

So, thanks Obama, for supporting small businesses. We founded this business so that our children could have a work-at-home mom who would be available when our kids needed us. At this point, I’m going to be working to pay our health insurance.

“I have not done anything wrong.”

Today’s headline.

Lois Lerner wants immunity in exchange for IRS testimony.

 

 

There must be something in the water in Topeka, KS. There’s no other way to explain how a town with a population of only 125,000 can be home to two completely unrelated crazycakes. The town was once home to a notable insane asylum. Perhaps it’s time to reopen it.

I’m linking the Google Caches of these articles because the outrage and laughter flowing from Denver has caused the servers at “Topeka’s News – A Progressive Voice for the Free Thinker” to crash. First, we have accusations that marijuana use has become so pervasive in Colorado that the Broncos were able to give contact highs to the entire Kansas City Chiefs football team without anyone noticing the smell of skunk.

Shocking new reports from sources in Denver confirm that Denver Broncos personnel were seen flooding Mile High Stadium with marijuana smoke, inundating the stadium with copious clouds of the mind-altering chemical moments before the game. Sources claim Denver Broncos staff also flooded the Chief’s lockeroom with a constant stream of marijuana smoke before the game and during halftime, as they have done with other teams for the last two years.

“It is suspicious when you have Charles dropping five your toss-ups and Peyton Manning chucking 60-yard touchdown passes off his left foot to his receivers, our guys hardly able to keep their balance and giggling,” a stoic Andy Reid said, saying the Chiefs will get beyond this game and prepare for San Diego next week.

Chiefs fans watching the game on Jumbo-tron back at Arrowhead Stadium were equally skeptical. ”You have to wonder if the Broncos are trying to give out contact high to incoming teams. They train in marijuana-laden conditions, other teams cannot compete with that. There is a conspiracy going on here and it involves the government of Colorado itself,” Chiefs fan Nadia Botwin stated.

Apparently marijuana culture is so pervasive here that it caused Peyton Manning to fall astray, and the Broncos’ woes are to be blamed on marijuana and the betrayal of Tim Tebow. (On a side note, marijuana smoked with the Denver Broncos also turned Shaun White into Eric Stoltz.)

Marijuana’s not the only thing causing our world to go to hell in a handbasket, though. The recent solar flares are a result of God’s wrath at gay marriage. Oh, and Obama’s to blame for 9/11, I guess because he’s invented time travel.

 

I know, I know, it would much be easier and less time consuming at this point to list the things that are right with California, but my home state provides provides an instructive (read horrifying) look at what happens when the Democrat party and its allies are allowed to run things without any real opposition. For instance:

In 2012, the Assembly considered a bill making it easier to fire teachers who sexually abuse students. Consider for a second that word “easier” — should anything be easier than simply firing somebody who molests children? The bill was written in response to the case of a Los Angeles elementary-school teacher who was fired after being accused of sexually abusing his students, and who challenged his firing. Rather than act in accord with the horrifying details of the case, the school district paid the teacher $40,000 to drop his appeal. That’s small change compared with the $30 million settlement the district is paying to the teacher’s alleged victims as a result of the case, or, for that matter, compared with the $23 million bail requirement that is keeping teacher Mark Berndt behind bars as he awaits trial on 23 felony counts of gruesome sexual abuse.

Against that background, making it easier to fire teachers facing credible accusations of sexual abuse seems like a pretty straightforward proposition. But the California Teachers Association and other unions presented a united front against a bill passed by the state senate, and it died in the Assembly.

There’s ever so much more at the link, but you might want to skip this one if your blood pressure is on the high side. I suppose the only silver lining here is that it’s going to be a bit of a stretch for anybody to blame this shit on conservatives, though I’m sure there’s some way they can bitch about this being a consequence of Prop 13, which is the default response among our state’s lefties whenever they manage to fuck up public education even more.
