It's Your Money

The news yesterday reported that the IRS was handing out millions of dollars worth of performance bonuses to employees. It noted that bonuses were given to employees that had performance issues. It noted that it gave bonuses to employees that had not paid or were not current with their taxes. Now that the inspector general pointed this out to the IRS leadership, the leadership is going to put together a committee to look into this. Putting together the committee will probably result in larger bonuses for the leadership but not stopping the practice of giving performance bonuses to poor performers.

You would probably spend your money this way wouldn't you?

Patriot Humor

Invading Nevada


Some Guys Rule

Patriot Post 041814
Columnist Frank J. Fleming: "Here's how articles written about science should read in the future: 'Some guys say there's oil on Titan.' 'Some guy has some new ideas on the effects of cholesterol on the human body.' '97% of some guys believe global warming is manmade.' Now, if you saw similar phrases in an article, what would your reaction be? You'd say things like, 'Who are these guys?' and 'Why should I listen to them?' and 'Have they done anything in the past that demonstrates they have any idea what they're talking about?' All of these questions, by the way, are ones you should have been asking about scientists, but we just don't think to do that since we assume the word means something ... which just demonstrates how much smarter and more reasoning we'll become when we get rid of that loaded term."

The Obamacare Debate is Settled, Just Ask Him

President Obama is heading to Asia for a week evidently to help out with the recovery of the South Korean Ferry, locating the flight 370, looking for new voters through encouraging illegal immigration, handing out money for new programs in foreign lands since the deficit has fallen to only $560,000,000,000.00 this budget year (pushing the national debt to $18,000,000,000,000.00 this year), and ensuring our allies that we will stand with them when they get into trouble like we have with our treaty obligations with Ukrane. But before he leaves he has time to tell us what a good thing Obamacare is and what could happen if those rascally republicans keep talking about it. "I've said before this law won't solve all the problems in our healthcare system. We know we've got more work to do. But we now know for a fact that repealing the Affordable Care Act would increase the deficit, raise premiums for millions of Americans and take insurance away from millions more," Obama said. He still has problems with reality and truth. If we still have more work to do after a 2,300 page bill and 20,000 pages of regulations  so far and he has not submitted anything to Congress yet, then we citizens are probably in more trouble that we know. He said that repealing it would increase the deficit. He doesn’t tell you that it will increase the deficit of the baseline before Obamacare and the estimated cost of Obamacare ($900,000,000,000.00) has increased to $2,300,000,000,000.00 with Obamacare. I will take the $230,000,000,000.00 increase over 10 years to the $1,400,000,000,000.00 increase over 10 years with Obamacare. The vast majority of people that got caught up in this round of Obamacare implementation have seen large hikes in their personal premiums and deductibles, taxpayers will pay out billions in subsidies, and he just pushed cuts to Medicare Advantage Program (Part C) that will increase the costs for seniors until after the 2014 election. The Obamacare regs impacted the cancellation of +6,000,000 policies so far with more to come as it comes to the next round of implementation. Numbers I have seen indicate that only about 2,000,000 previously uninsured people have now have health insurance coverage of the 40,000,000 that they sited at the start of this fiasco. The CBO notes that there will still be 30,000,000 uninsured in 2013. Repeal or not, Obamacare will cancel the most health insurance plans either way. It is clear that he knows what is best for every individual and a government takeover and administration of the whole healthcare system is the only obvious choice for your own good, so pitch in and help (or you may be a racist). P.S. Lujan and Udall are big supporters of Obamacare, and know what is best for you in all other areas of your life as well.

The Cost of Energy Will Necessarily Skyrocket Humor

Fred Thompson: "A new report shows that America's current economic growth is only half of what President Obama promised that his policies would deliver. But I guess he breaks even, since gas is still twice what it was when he took office."

Early Gun Control Attempt

Just a reminder that 19 April is the 239th anniversary of the battles of Concord & Lexington (19 April 1775) - known as "The Shot Heard 'Round the World". This first battle, leading to our nation's independence, was a FAILED attempt at "gun control" by the then-dictator, King George III of the United Kingdom - an act being carried out in too many parts of our USA RIGHT NOW. This first gun control of the Colonies was a failure, because of the will and determination of a small part of the population (about 3% actually fought for our Independence actively, with many others supporting) to stand up to an oppressive controlling government (England). Without the sacrifice by those few Patriots, we could very well still be "British Subjects", rather than Independent Citizens. Think about that.
