Back in May, our Divider in Chief trolled the critics of his disastrous "Affordable" Care Act. "It's. The. Law." the official White House Twitter account stated, along with a photo of Obama's signature on the legislative train wreck.
Since then, "it's the law" has been a favorite Democratic talking point on why Obamacare is somehow impossible to repeal. The President doubled down on this novel theory in his comments Monday:
This past weekend I had the privilege of attending a discussion with authors and radio hosts Dennis Prager and Hugh Hewitt. While the Sunday talk highlighted faith and culture over politics, Prager did share his oft-quoted maxim, "the bigger the government, the smaller the citizen."
According to a new Gallup poll, Americans are starting to agree. In an all-time high, 60% of Americans believe the federal government has too much power.
Obama’s using cute animals to sell the “Adorable Care Act” to a skeptical public. But we found 7 pics that didn’t make the cut.
To help sell the “Affordable” Care Act to a skeptical public, the official White House Twitter account is rolling out the Internet’s most popular stars: cute animals.
Promoting an anonymous Tumblr called Adorable Care Act, the administration is using kitties, puppies and pandas to promote Obamacare. Your tax dollars at work!
Thankfully, we were able to find seven images that didn’t make the cut…
Did anyone else watch John Kerry's statement on Syria yesterday? Just me? Okay, let me tell you about it. Before heading to next week's UN General Assembly, our oddly headed Secretary of State engaged in some tough talk to the "community of nations":
Sarin was used. Sarin killed. The world can decide whether it was used by the regime, which has used chemical weapons before, the regime which had the rockets and the weapons, or whether the opposition secretly went unnoticed into territory they don’t control to fire rockets they don’t have containing sarin that they don’t possess to kill their own people. And then without even being noticed, they just disassembled it all and packed up and got out of the center of Damascus, controlled by Assad. Please. This isn’t complicated. When we said we know what is true, we meant it.
Ever get the feeling that our Chief Executive is very, very disappointed in us?
Like a long-suffering parent, Obama bravely tries to be patient with his wayward, ungrateful children. Yet every once in a while the mask slips and he complains about "bitter clingers" filled with "fear and frustration" who have gotten a "little bit lazy."
The Hill begins a story with a line that should have been used much more over the past five years: "President Obama said Tuesday that Americans were wrong…" It encapsulates one of the greatest frustrations of his loyal opposition. Not that he disagrees with our policies, but that he considers them unworthy of even cursory investigation.
We had to replace our 12-year-old washer and dryer a while back.
“What a compelling lead sentence, Jon! I can’t wait to see how this cliffhanger ends!” Don’t worry, I’ll get to the point soon.
Since our old appliances were bargain basement, no-frills models, we thought we’d treat ourselves to something a little higher-end. The cheapest new units were double what we paid a dozen years ago and they had fewer features. The really expensive units looked nice, but behind the bells and whistles they felt plastic and cheap.
Chicken, Alaska is a tiny community 30 miles west of the Canadian border and about 300 miles east from Fairbanks. With an official population of 7, Chicken has no electrical service, telephones or central plumbing.
Needless to say, the quiet band of residents was shocked to see a SWAT-style squad pour out of the wilderness wearing full body armor demanding answers. Was it an attempt to break up a terror cell, arrest drug runners, or rescue endangered women, children and puppies?
The Alaska Environmental Crimes Task Force conducted the paramilitary raid to check for dirty water.
I remember the Old Age — the time Before Obama.
We had cruel rulers who were so focused on wars and greed that they never shared a vital secret with their subjects. These latter-day Neros and Caligulae didn't once tell the dessicated masses about a simple, life-giving treasure. The treasure of Water.
It was a dark time. A thirsty time.
¡Viva la Reformación!
I was raised Lutheran and currently attend a reformed church. I was curious to see which group was most interested in claiming the lofty mantle of the Reformation. Being an heir of the Protestant Work Ethic, I created some T-shirt designs showing the great theologians in the iconic Che Guevara pose.
From today through Reformation Day (Oct. 31, 2013), I'm holding a contest to see which sells better:
Guevara was a lousy revolutionary, despite his inexplicable popularity. But where Che pointed to secular salvation. Calvin and Luther pointed to a real revolution — not only in church and society but in body, mind and spirit.
Whether you're on campus or at church, lifting a tankard or planting some TULIPs, visiting Geneva or Wittenburg, let the world know which reformer is your favorite, Martin Luther or John Calvin! I will tabulate the sales week by week to see the "votes."
Share the contest far and wide — I'll keep you updated on the scores and will reveal the winner immediately after Reformation Day on Nov. 1, 2013.
