Posted by: Phineas on December 19, 2013 at 8:22 pm » 6 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Remember, one of the excuses offered for the massive private insurance cancellations under Obamacare was that the existing policies –the ones you chose of your own free will– just weren’t good enough.

**Posted by Phineas The Israelis just can’t win. Rape, and you’re a racist. Don’t rape, and it’s because you’re racist: We didn’t include in our excerpt the following passage in which the failure of Israeli soldiers to rape Arab women is portrayed as an act of racism by a BDS activist.  Really, that has been […]

**Posted by Phineas Nope. I remember going to museums, and zoos, and observatories. We even went to a farm, where we got to milk the cows, harvest some eggs, and pick some produce.

**Posted by Phineas I mean, why else would you include in your “full-court press” of members of Congress a known liar (1) like Susan Rice?

In an astonishing display of either ignorance or brazenness, the White House will mark the first anniversary of the […]
