It has just come to my attention that Harry Reid
a one time 31 point underdog has now pulled to within 8 points of
his Republican challenger. The reason. It seems as though a Tea Partier has entered
the fray and is sucking votes away from the Republican.
Personally I don't care if a Republican wins or a Tea Partier as long as Reid is out. If you listen real close you can almost hear Reid praying.
Please....Please.. don't let that
light skinned guy that doesn't speak with a Negro
dialect come to Nevada to campaign for me.

Ok it doesn't rhyme, but it is supposed to be the Gold Standard, the Seal of Approval if you will.
Boehner sitting there absorbing the "creative math"of the healthcare bill.
The look on his face
2002 BUDGET DEFICIT:
ESTIMATED: $21 BILLION /// ACTUAL: $158 BILLION
JANUARY 2007 C.B.O. ECONOMIC FORCAST: GDP WILL GROW 2008 BY 3%, AND 2009 BY 2.9% BASED ON HOUSING MARKET IMPROVEMENTS AND GAS PRICES STABLE.... WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT TURNED OUT.
ESTIMATED: $12 BILLION /// ACTUAL: $167 BILLION
MEDICAID DSH PROGRAM 1992
ESTIMATED: $1 BILLION ACTUAL: $17 BILLION
MEDICARE HOME CARE 1993
ESTIMATED: $4 BILLION /// ACTUAL: $10 BILLION
BOSTON'S BIG DIG ROAD PROJECT
ESTIMATED: $2 BILLION /// ACTUAL: $15 BILLION + $8 BILLION MANDATED RAIL TRANSPORTAION SPENDING & still counting.
This healthcare scam (bill) has been a backdoor, double dealing, riddled with payoffs, botched hatchet job since its inception.
The CBO is supposed to be a independent, impartial, 3rd party separate from the politics of government. If you recall when Obamacare was first brought to the table the CBO did not agree with the cost analysis of healthcare predicting it would be much higher.
In an unprecedented under handed move so indicative of this administration the head of the CBO Douglas Elmendorf was invited to the White House and miraculously he had a change of heart. The CBO has been waffling back and forth ever since.
...Lets see now....Louisiana got this...Nebraska got that...The unions were taken care of...
I wonder what the CBO got...?

To All 535 voting members of the Legislature; it is now official you are ALL corrupt morons:
You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars
- The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.
- Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
- Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.
- War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.
- Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.
- Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
- The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM?
IT'S NOT ABOUT THE NEED FOR GOOD HEALTH CARE, IT'S ABOUT TRUSTING THE GOVERNMENT TO RUN IT.

And so it came to past in the year of our Lord 2010. Where a top of Capitol Hill stood the Messiah. The heavens parted and the sun shone majestically on the anointed one. The multitudes gazed up in awe; hungry for the words of the Messiah.
"I come to you my brethren with all the problems I inherited to save you. Give me your sick and injured for I shall heal thee."
The anointed one waved a hand upon the multitudes. And spoke the words they longed to here.
"I give thee healthcare. I am him and I deem it so"
So it was said. So it was written.

Recently we had the Moses twins Bush and Clinton parting the sea along with Hollywood in a mad rush to help the people of Haiti. A country that was a shit hole 20 years ago, a shit hole today, and will continue to be a shit hole 20 years from now.
We now live in a world where spending $15-to-$20 billion is considered pocket change. Yet we can't find the money to help 10,000 first responders to 911! They had to sue to cover their medical costs? I just saw a report on TV even if they win the $657M lawsuit the lawyers get $200M right off the top. Why should they have to fight to get the money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency when we freely gave Godzillions to Haiti? We have earmarks costing billions such as studying the sex drive of rats but we can't find the money to help our very own heros. Just what the hell kind of country are we living in?
Judge to hear plan to pay $657M to WTC responders

Did you see this guy on Beck last night?
"Now they're saying I groped a male staffer. Yeah, I did. Not only did I grope him, I tickled him until he couldn't breathe, and then four guys jumped on top of me. It was my 50th birthday."
He resigned because:
Rahm Emanuel threatened him
he had cancer
he groped a staff member
he voted against health care
he was forced out by the Democrats
he's tired of the political wrangling
Take your pick.
However, when Robert Gibbs calls Massa's accusations "silly" and "ridiculous" you can bet your bottom dollar there is more to the story then meets the eye.
I think I am going to email this guy and find out what groping and a "tickle-fight" means.

Two Middle East mothers are sitting in a cafe chatting over a plate of tabouli and a pint of goat's milk.
The older of the two pulls a bag out of her purse and starts flipping through photos. They start reminiscing.
''This is my oldest son, Mujibar. He would have been 24 years old now.''
''Yes, I remember him as a baby'' says the other mother cheerfully.
"He's a martyr now though" the mother confides.
"Oh, so sad dear'' says the other.
''And this is my second son, Khalid. He would have been 21.''
''Oh, I remember him,'' says the other happily, ''he had such curly hair when he was born.''
''He's a martyr too'' says the mother quietly.
''Oh, gracious me . . . '' says the other.
''And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed.. He would have been 18'', she whispers.
"Yes" says the friend enthusiastically, ''I remember when he first started school''
''He's a martyr also,'' says the mother, with tears in her eyes.
After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfully at the photographs and, searching for the right words, says . . .
"They blow up so fast, don't they?"
