The governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick, has shut down all state agencies so the AMERICAN TAXPAYER won’t find out that the bombers and their family have collected over $100,000 in government assistance during their time living in this country – BECAUSE OF PRIVACY ISSUES FOR THE DEAD BOMBER!
Obamacare is being implemented on a daily basis. The law is so bad, that even one of the authors of it, DEMOCRAT SENATOR Max Baucus, has called it a train wreck and announced his resignation from the Senate. The Congress has been quietly trying to figure out a way to exempt themselves and their staff from requirements of the law THEY PASSED ON US. Many Democrats, and even union supporters are backing away from supporting the law.
We have over 11 million people looking for work but not finding it – and drawing unemployment. That calculates to an unemployment rate at the end of April, 2013 of 7.6%. Sounds good, right? The actual (U-6) unemployment number is 13.8% - and includes those who have given up looking and are no longer eligible for unemployment compensation. Apparently MANY of these formerly employed people have become disabled. A record 5.4 million workers and their dependents have signed up to collect federal disability checks since President Obama took office, up 25% since the ‘end of the great recession’ in July, 2009. [This according to the latest official government data.] Discouraged workers are increasingly giving up looking for jobs and taking advantage of another federal tit program. AND THIS WAS AS OF APRIL, 2012‼!
The government of Syria is using chemical weapons against their citizen opposition. Assad has crossed Obama’s ‘red line’. Despite evidence that the regime has used chemical weapons against its people, President Obama Tuesday said that the United States will not intervene in the conflict until both the administration and the international community can establish that the Assad regime has (positively) used chemical weapons. “We don’t know how they were used, when they were used, who used them, we don’t have a chain of custody that establishes what exactly happened,” Obama told reporters. [Apparently the CIA has been closed down, due to Obama’s sequester.]
Iran probably has nukes, but they, like Syria, haven’t crossed Obama’s ‘red line’. [See CIA comment above]
North Korea, in addition to all their saber rattling, has been holding an American tourist since late in 2012, and plans to put him on trial.
Yesterday, Jason Collins, an over-the-hill NBA player, who played in only 6 of 82 games during the 2012-2013 season, came out of the closet and announced he likes to have sex with other men. Speculation is, this announcement will force some team to hire him, or the NBA could be facing discrimination charges for failure to ‘hire an avowed homosexual.’
The New York Times led with the Collins announcement. So did the L.A. Times and the Chicago Tribune. Anything on the other items was buried inside the paper - if it was there at all!
President Barack Obama called Jason Collins on Monday to express his GRATITUDE after the NBA player publicly announced that he is gay, two sources familiar with the call told The Huffington Post.
Obama in the Oval Office with his feet on the Resolute Desk. [The Resolute desk is a large, nineteenth-century partners' desk. It was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880 and was built from the timbers of the British Arctic Exploration ship Resolute.] Where's the R-E-S-P-E-C-T?
