Hypocrisy of the Green Kooks

The Sierra Club’s 15-member board of directors own a combined 32 vehicles, less than one-fifth of which are hybrids or electric vehicles. Seven of the 32 vehicles are sports utility vehicles while only six are hybrids and electric cars, according to data gathered by the Environmental Policy Alliance. 
Obama's schedule on Earth Day will use more than 35,000 gallons of fuel and emit 375 tons of CO2. Meanwhile, there are signs of sanity elsewhere. I am pleased to report that a federal judge invalidated a"2007 Minnesota law that bans new power generation from coal, saying it regulates business activities of out-of-state utilities in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s commerce clause." Ireland and Britain failed to reach an agreement for the former to build wind turbines to supply energy to the latter. Finally, Eagle Ford Shale in Texas is producing 1.2 million barrels of oil/day.

Obama's Sinister Legacy

Obama's legacy: Increasing the ranks of the permanently unemployed. Meanwhile, some US companies are beginning an exodus to Europe to escape the country's high taxes. Under the Obama regime, the country is suffering from a rising tide of the permanently unemployed, high corporate taxes leading to corporate flight and more unemployment, and rising food prices. The Obama regime's answer to this rising flood of woes is to increase wasteful spending to increase the national debt and maintain high deficits.

The Unethical Nominee of an Immoral Regime

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, President Obama’s nominee to lead the country’s health care overhaul, remains entangled in a lawsuit brought by shareholders of MetLife accusing her of misleading investors as a director of one of the country’s biggest insurance companies.
The federal lawsuit, filed in New York, says the company used a Social Security death index to stop making payments when beneficiaries died, but the company wasn’t as diligent about using the database to track deaths of its policyholders, which triggers payouts, the lawsuit said.
Attempting to profit from the deaths of others, Obama's perfect person to lead the Dept. of Health and Human Services.

Israel Must Attack Iran Before It is Too Late

Israel's shadow war against Tehran can only slow don that regime's drive toward nuclear weapons. A military strike, even if only partially successful, can do much more to buy the civilized world more time until the current spineless occupant of the White House vacates the premises and a more serious president takes his place.

Murder Most Foul

Under government health care, the patient is nothing more than an organ container to be exploited. The Government Accountability Office will investigate how Hawaii spent $204 million just to enroll 8,000 people in their health insurance exchange, an average of $25,000/person. That was just for the enrollment, not actual medical treatment. I am pleased to report that a federal judge in Colorado issued an injunction against the Obama regime's contraception mandate in response to a suit filed by a Christian broadcaster.

In Britain, land of the National Health Disservice (NHD), doctors are overworked and can overlook vital signs of illnesses. The NHD spent more than $10 million in an attempt to discredit a whistleblower who exposed poor care and patient deaths at his hospital.

Victims of Obama's Health Insurance Scheme

Obama's scheme caused the children of 1,800 families in New Jersey to lose their health coverage. Woman at New York enrolled in Obama's scheme now finds that not only is her insurance is inoperative but her doctors don't accept it, either. The premiums charged by Obama's scheme remains unaffordable for many.

In Britain, land of the National Health Disservice, tens of thousands of victims of poor health care are too afraid to report their mistreatment. A Welsh patient waited 6 months for a doctor's appointment and had to borrow more than $5,000 for private medical treatment.

It Takes Lies and Criminality to Prop Up Obama's Health Insurance Scheme

The Census Bureau is changing the way it conducts its annual survey on health coverage in a way that will make it nearly impossible to measure the impact of Obamacare.
The Obama regime's Housing and Urban Development Dept. had been charged with "improperly using funds appropriated by Congress to promote Obamacare." Those who enroll in Obama's scheme will have to pay an extra $354 due to 7 taxes imposed by Obama's scheme.

In Britain, land of the death panels, a 28-year-old woman "died from a brain abscess six weeks after she was sent home with antibiotics by her doctor who told her she had a minor ear infection...." A 74-year-old man who broke his back was given 2 painkillers and chastised for calling an ambulance.

Obama Regime Continues Its War Against the US Economy

The Obama regime also spent $400,000 on a camel sculpture for the US embassy in Pakistan. The Commerce Department’s Office of Inspector General reported that federal employees spent their time watching he latest Star Trek movie. There are "10 different offices at the Department of Health and Human Services to run programs addressing AIDS in minority communities. Autism research is spread out over 11 different agencies."

Obama's Health Insurance Scheme Staggers on

Computer glitches continue to plague Obama's scheme. Survey suggests that Obama's scheme raised premiums by 100% in Delaware, 53% in California, 37% in Florida, and 28% in Pennsylvania. Study by the Rand Corp. demonstrates that most of the recent decline in the uninsured should be attributed to private employers, not Obama's scheme:
When it comes to the previously uninsured, 7.2 million gained employer-sponsored coverage, 3.6 million gained Medicaid and just 1.4 million signed up through Obamacare exchanges....
Meanwhile in Britain, land of the death panels, a 64-year-old man died after a series of mistakes or neglect by 36 medical staffers. A 71-year-old woman suffered from brain damage because a surgeon operated at the wrong area.

The Cult of Environmentalism

The scientist James Lovelock denounced the modern phenomenon of environmentalism as transforming itself into a religion. The EPA drafted its rules to destroy the use of coal in the US by secretly colluding with greenies to the extent of using personal e-mail accounts instead of official channels to prevent the discovery of their conspiracy. The EPA's inspector general examined 80 transactions and discovered that 75 of them involve improper use of agency funds for personal reasons. The solar power plant at San Bernardino County, California is known to fry birds and insects. In one of the rare triumphs for sanity, New Jersey rejected a plan to build a wind farm near Atantic City.

More on the Obama Regime's Lie About the Benghazi Terrorist Attack

The Tragedies Resulting From Government Health Insurance

Nearly 5 million people lost their health insurance thanks to Obama's health insurance scheme and only Democrats are shameless enough to claim that forcing these people to lose their insurance and signing up for what often are more expensive or less adequate insurance policies count as success. Highmark Inc. gained 104,000 customers thanks to Obama's scheme but will still lose $2.9 million. This is a good description of Obama's scheme: Democrats win, everybody else loses. In another example of the failures of government health care, the Dept. of Veterans Affairs paid out $200 million for nearly 1,000 wrongful veteran deaths thanks to poor treatment from veterans' hospitals. A class action law suit was filed against Nevada's health insurance exchange "over the troubled insurance marketplace." Finally in Britain, land of the death panels, St James's University Hospital at Leeds conceded that a baby under their care would have lived if not for their poor care.

Another Fictitious "Hate Crime"

British homosexual teenager confessed that he made up the story about a "hate crime" when his injuries were cause by his own accidental fall.

Is Obama the Worst Commander-in-Chief in History?

Only 1/3 of veterans prefer Obama as commander-in-chief whereas 2/3 prefer former President Bush the Younger. Only liberals are cowardly and idiotic enough to totally misread veterans, nearly all of whom are volunteers and a substantial number of whom have no fear of war. What they fear much more is the doormat-like foreign policy of liberals.

Another Victory for the Freedom of Religion

I am pleased to report that a federal judge ruled that Catholic charities in Georgia are immune from the Obama regime's contraception mandate contained in their health insurance scheme. A Michigan family that spoke out against the crushing economic impact of Obama's scheme on their finances by mentioning that their premiums skyrocketed from $221/month to $381/month received what can be expected from liberals: hate mail. Meanwhile, a survey suggests that the Democratic Party's excuse for bringing so much misery and disruption to the American people, insuring the uninsured to be the nonsense that it always had been as only about 715,500 previously uninsured people signed up to Obama's scheme. This is out of a Census Bureau-estimated total of 48 million uninsured. In other words, millions of people lost their insurance and saw their premiums skyrocket just to insure an additional 1.5% of the uninsured (or 0.2% of the total population). As a plan to offer insurance to the uninsured, this is a laughable failure. As a plan of political warfare to register more Democrats, it is going just fine as California's health insurance exchange very helpfully sent out voter registration forms with the Democratic Party already picked for voters. Finally in Britain, land of the death panels, a nurse is charged with the murder of 3 patients.

The Delusional Liar-in-Chief

Former Sen. Bob Kerrey (Democrat, Nebraska) denounced Obama as someone who deliberately deceived the people to sell his health insurance scheme. Survey of 100 large employers reveals that they expect Obama's scheme to cost them at least $151 billion over 10 years. That's money that will not go toward reducing the unemployment rate by hiring more employees or raising salaries. Maryland's $125.5 million health insurance exchange is such a disaster that the state plans to switch to the Connecticut system instead. This is just the type of waste one can expect from a government program. The Obama regime claimed that 7.1 million people signed up for Obama's scheme but less than 900,000 actually paid their premiums. Finally in Britain, land of free health care, new report suggests that patients should be charged more than $16/month.

With Government Health Care Comes Government Cover-Up

In Britain, land of the death panels, hospitals have been re-coding patient deaths to escape blame for poor care that led to their deaths. A private initiative in Britain raised more than $21,000 to pay for a 2-year-old girl's surgery. But, I thought government health care is supposed to solve the problem of poor patients who are unable to afford medical operations. Why does Britain's National Health Disservice need money from a private initiative?

Meanwhile in the US, the CEO of Cleveland Clinic stated that 3/4 of people who enroll in Obama's health insurance scheme will face higher premiums. The Obama regime stated that for people to qualify for a delay to escape being penalized by Obama's scheme for failure to enroll before the deadline, they must indicate that they attempted to enroll before the deadline. The Obama regime then admitted that there will be no attempt at verifying those claims and that it relies upon an "honor system". We have a lawless regime that suspends numerous parts of the law with no statutory authority to do so and now they effectively encourage lawlessness by the people by leaving a gigantic loophole and essentially inviting people to lie to escape the penalty. In light of the disaster that is Obama's scheme, it is no wonder that support for Obama's scheme collapsed to only 26%.

And an Untrained One Would Not Have Done Much Worse
