Disturbing: Congress, staff members will get abortion coverage under #Obamcare exchanges

Posted by: ST on October 1, 2013 at 11:28 am » 1 Comment

Quite simply … wow: The Office of Personnel Management ruled Monday that members of Congress and their staffs will be able to buy health care plans that pay for abortions, even though the premiums are funded largely by taxpayer money — a move that conservatives say breaks federal law on abortion funding. Under the terms […]

 

Great moments in WTF: Obamacare has nothing to do with the budget?

**Posted by Phineas Charles C. W. Cooke commented on the speech President Obama gave today on Obamacare, and to say he was flabbergasted would a vast understatement. After recounting the various lies, non-sequiturs, and insults that filled the speech (1), he turns to the whopper of whoppers: Obama’s assertion that the PPACA has nothing to […]

 

Education: I don’t recall field trips like this when I was young

**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. For a little kid in grammar school, those trips were fun. Then again, we were never treated like slaves and had abuse hurled at […]

**Posted by Phineas This was an interesting morning on Twitter. After the House voted to pass a continuing resolution that funds the government but provides no money for Obamacare, conservative journalist Amanda Carpenter wrote the following: GOP beat gun control, changed Obama’s mind on Syria, is holding the line on amnesty. We can defund Obamacare, […]

**Posted by Phineas Katie Pavlich nails it: It’s spitting on their graves. During the second portion of a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing about Benghazi Thursday on Capitol Hill, the majority of Democrats on the Committee left the room and refused to listen to the testimony of Patricia Smith and Charles Woods. Ms. Smith […]

 

#IRS watching conservative groups as recently as two weeks ago?

Posted by: Phineas on September 19, 2013 at 4:31 pm » 4 Comments

**Posted by Phineas You’d think, after admitting wrongdoing back in May and being thoroughly pilloried by the public since then, the IRS would have had the good sense to stop singling out groups based on political beliefs. You would also be wrong: Republicans investigating the IRS targeting scandal said Wednesday that the agency continued to […]

 

#IRS: Going after veterans’ groups?

Posted by: Phineas on August 28, 2013 at 2:01 pm » 4 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Well, here’s a surprise (he wrote in sarcasm): while harassing Tea Party and other conservative groups –and interfering with their ability to participate in the 2012 elections, coincidentally enough– our public servants in the IRS decided it would be a good idea to audit veterans organizations, the members of which are largely […]

Unhinged Democrat Rangel: Tea Party like Old South racists, GOP worse than terrorists

Posted by: ST on August 2, 2013 at 3:02 pm » 7 Comments

Disgusting – but not surprising he’d say this kind of garbage (hat tip): There is little question that Rangel is nearing the end. First elected 43 years ago, after having defeated the man whose name adorns the building where the congressman keeps his office, he is musing aloud now about what he once forbade anyone to […]

**Posted by Phineas Picketing a child’s funeral? Does no one in the Teamsters have any sense of decency? Don’t bother; I already know the answer: SCI Illinois Services, Inc., one of the nation’s largest funeral home chains, asked a district court to intervene after striking funeral directors and drivers with Teamsters Local 727 allegedly harassed grieving […]
