The Iran Deal is Full of Holes

Ret. Adm. and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander James Stavridis stated that the agreement is non-verifiable. Rep. Grace Meng (Democrat, New York) announced her opposition to the Obama regime's capitulation to Tehran.

The Disaster That is Medicare

By 1990, the program was already spending more than 9 times its projected cost that year. 10% doctors won't even see Medicare patients. Meanwhile in Britain, land of the death panels, a 66 year old may died at the James Paget University Hospital 2 years ago. The hospital staff placed a "do not resuscitate" notice in his file without even informing his family.

The Moral Majority in Malaysia

The only problem is that the penalties are far too lenient. I thought sharia law required the execution of perverts?

Corrupt Democrat Demands That the People Pay His Legal Bills

Panda Learns Welfare Mentality

The modern welfare state rewards single mothers with more lavish welfare benefits. Not surprisingly, as they subsidize immorality, they get more single mothers. Now a panda in Taiwan also observed the same type of behavior by her zoo. So she tried to fake a pregnancy for more welfare benefits.

Obama Regime Continues to Flaunt Its Folly on Syria

Obama claimed that chlorine gas is not historically a chemical weapon even though it is actually one of the earliest chemical weapons. It was often used during WWI to blind and kill enemy troops. International inspectors discovered traces of sarin and VX in Syria. Obama has not commented on whether sarin and VX constitute chemical weapons. Syria may be receiving aid from North Korea and Iran to develop its own nuclear weapon. Meanwhile, the Obama regime wants to make nice with Damascus. Finally, the lights are going out all over Syria.

Pervert Protection Repealed

I am pleased to note that the people of Springfield, Missouri voted to repeal legal protections for homosexuals.

Most Americans Opposed to Obama Regime's Capitulation to Tehran

I am pleased to note that a survey shows that 52% of the people believe that the nuclear agreement should be rejected. Now, why would that be the case? Could it possibly be because the people are aware of Iran's long history of hostility toward the US, such as their support for Yemeni rebels?

Medicare is Plagued with Fraud

A recent audit from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) discovered more than 23,000 potentially fake or bad addresses of health care providers in the Medicare program.
The program made $60 billion of improper payments last year. Meanwhile in Britain, land of the death panels, elderly patients with broken ribs are dying despite a new treatment that can save their lives is available.

The Supporters of Morality

A conservative business in Indiana raised more than $800,000 after coming under attack by liberal nuts.

The Democratic Party's War on Woman

Sen. Minority Leader Harry Reid (Democrat, Nevada) has a consistent record of demonstrating hostility toward women.

Peace Through Superior Firepower

Study suggests that 1/3 of the American population have at least 1 gun. Survey suggests that the number of Americans who support the use of firearms to deter crime increased from 48% in 2012 to 57% last year.
Since 2007, the number of concealed handgun permits has soared from 4.6 million to over 12.8 million, and murder rates have fallen from 5.6 killings per 100,000 people to just 4.2, about a 25 percent drop, according to the report from the Crime Prevention Research Center.
And the number of permits issued is increasing faster every year. Over 1.7 million new permits were issued last year — a 15.4 percent increase over 2013, the largest such single-year jump ever....
I am pleased to note that the Missouri Supreme Court upheld a state constitutional amendment to strengthen firearms rights. Last but not least, liberals continue to lie about gun violence in the US.

Obama's Health Insurance Scheme Collapsing

Just two years after Obamacare’s implementation, a Louisiana nonprofit insurer that received nearly $66 million in taxpayer-funded loans is closing its doors.
Meanwhile in Britain, land of the National Health Disservice, "more than 500 hospitals, care homes and nurseries" have been cited for poor hygiene.

European Countries are Largely Worthless

This is one of the rare occasions when I agree with the Obama regime. European countries are largely worthless and undeserving of the attention the US has so long wasted on them.

Iran's Nuclear Program Continues to Progress

Iran took advantage of diplomatic negotiations to advance their nuclear program. China will build 5 nuclear plants in Iran.

Obama's Health Insurance Scheme and Its Devastating Consequences

The taxes imposed by Obama's scheme will be forcing people to pay even more for their health care. Meanwhile in Britain, land of the National Health Disservice, the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary gave a patient a bed in a restroom because there was no room available.

Sodomite Suppression Act

There is a proposal in California to:
...make the “monstrous evil” that is homosexuality a crime punishable by death with “bullets to the head” or whatever form of execution is most “convenient.”
If the state fails to do its part in the mass killing of gay and lesbian violators, the bill deputizes the general public to perform executions in its place without any repercussions.

Obama Regime's Dumb Power Strikes Again

In her confirmation hearings to become secretary of state, Hillary Clinton said: "America cannot solve the most pressing problems on our own, and the world cannot solve them without America. . . . We must use what has been called 'smart power,' the full range of tools at our disposal."
The Polish government launched an official protest after the Obama regime's director of FBI suggested that Poland was complicit in the Holocaust. 6 million Poles died in WWII.

Obama Regime is Aiding and Abetting Iran

While Iran is stepping up its military preparations, they are also expanding their regional influence by building missile sites in Syria and training the Taliban. The Obama regime, instead of providing support for rebellious Iranian Kurds, is actually providing aerial support for Iran's campaign to dominate Iraq.

Obama's Health Insurance Scheme is a Black Hole

The Government Accountability Office reported that neither the Obama regime nor the states knew how they spent billions of dollars on Obama's scheme. Meanwhile in Britain, land of the death panels, a 5-months-old baby died after his doctor left a voice message saying that he was very busy. The doctor later made the fraudulent claim that he visited the family's home.

The Fight Against Abortion Goes on

I am pleased to note that the North Carolina state house voted 71-43 to "triple the waiting time between required counseling and visits to an abortion clinic." I am also pleased to note that the 5th Circuit Court upheld new abortion restrictions in Texas. The Ohio state senate voted 23-9 to "prohibit most abortions after 20 weeks of gestation...." The abortion rate in the US fell about 12% over the past 5 years. Finally, Congress will launch an investigation into an abortion provider's sale of fetal body parts.

From the Liberal Hypocrisy Watch

While Democrats whine about a supposed gender gap in pay, both the Obama regime and the Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton pay their female employees less than their male employees.

Obama Regime's Dumb Power

Obama's Disastrous Deal with Iran

An Iranian defector claimed that the Obama regime was busily lobbying on Iran's behalf during the recent talks. The Obama regime also freed an Iranian scientist who was trying to procure components for Iran's nuclear program to curry favor from Tehran. Iran certainly returned the favor by barring Americans from inspecting Iranian nuclear sites. Just recently, Yemeni rebels backed by Iran also captured US intelligence files. Now, Secretary of State Kerry is reduced to lying about the Obama regime never promising "anywhere, any time 24/7 access" to Iran's nuclear sites when Obama's National Security Adviser promised just that on CNN in April.

Obama's Health Insurance Scheme Will Ruin the States

Since states signed up for Obama's Medicaid expansion scheme, costs are skyrocketing. Meanwhile in Britain, land of the death panels, from 2004-11, up to 30 babies and mothers died at a single British hospital.

Obama Regime's Capitulation to Iran

The Obama regime removed one of Iran's masterminds of terrorism from the list of proscribed persons. They also went so far as to assail the country's allies for raising concerns with their rush to appease Iran. The agreement actually provides Iran with Western intelligence on their nuclear program and then grants them a month to cover it up. This despite the facts that Britain discovered that Iran is actively trying to procure components for a nuclear arms program and Iran's stockpile of nuclear fuel surged by 20% over the last 18 months.

Perverts Do Not Deserve Protection

I am pleased to note that Gov. Brownback (R. Kansas) issued an executive order to cancel "protections offered to state employees facing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity."

Fraud is Part and Parcel with Government Health Care

The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office says 11 counterfeit characters that its investigators created last year were automatically re-enrolled by HealthCare.gov, even though most had unresolved documentation issues. In Obama's terms, they got to keep the coverage they had.

Six of those later were flagged and sent termination notices. But GAO said it was able to get five of them reinstated by calling HealthCare.gov's consumer service center. That seemed to be a weak link in the system.
The five bogus beneficiaries who were reinstated even got their monthly subsidies bumped up a bit, although GAO did not ask for it.
Meanwhile in Britain, land of the death panels, 61-year-old woman died after waiting 10 hours for an ambulance.

How Democrats Continue to be Elected

Hypocrisy = Prerequisite for Being a Greenie

In a March 12 address to the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C., Secretary of State John Kerry warned that climate change outranks terrorism, epidemics and poverty as the worst threat facing the world today. Our only salvation, he asserted, lies in an energy policy that replaces fossil fuels with solar, wind and other “clean energy.”
However, at the same time he gave this crisis speech, public records indicated that Secretary Kerry personally owned an estimated three to six million dollars in stocks of more than 50 oil and gas-related companies. Records from 2004 show that he’s been constantly and deeply invested in fossil fuels for at least a decade, and is still injecting millions in working capital into the very industries he condemns.
Meanwhile, 22 states are suing the Environmental Protection Agency for its new water regulations.

Greece Deserves a "Humiliating Deal"

Any group of people foolish enough to vote for a gang of Far Left lunatics to govern their country deserve whatever humiliation that comes their way.

Of course, that doesn't mean the deal is good. Far from it. Like the previous bailout packages of 2010 and 2012, this deal will only further undermine Greece.  While austerity is both good and necessary, the tax increases will only choke off economic growth. The 2 previous bailout packages already spent a collective 227 billion euros. What makes anyone think a new infusion of 86 billion euros will suddenly solve the Greek problem? Indeed, the problem that plagues Greece is profligate spending. Offering them more money is akin to providing more alcohol to an alcoholic and hope he will quit. As this bailout packages resembles its 2 predecessors, expect a new Greek crisis within 2-3 years.

It has been said that the definition of insanity is to repeat the same actions over and over again in hope of a new result. By that definition, this bailout plan is insane. But then again, for a people insane enough to elect Far Left lunatics to govern them, perhaps this insane package is fitting after all.

David Petraeus warned that Iran is "deeply hostile" toward US interests in the Middle East; when the second-highest ranking Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee ridiculed the Obama regime's arguments for such a deal as "preposterous"; the Obama regime concluded an agreement that doesn't even deal with Iran's nuclear facilities at Parchin and Bushehr. To quote Winston Churchill, we have sustained a total and unmitigated defeat.

Greeks Discover That They Can't Vote Against Math

The socialist Greek government was forced to sign up to a more stringent austerity program than it otherwise would have had the Greek people been wise enough to vote for a more moderate government. It does, however, afford capitalists the amusing spectacle of watching avowed socialists sign up for a tougher austerity program. Just like in communist countries, Greeks now have to familiarize themselves with the practice of waiting in line for everything due to shortages.

The Death Panels are Here

Now Medicare is paying doctors to convince their patients to commit suicide. Thanks to Obama's health insurance scheme, young people may pay 44% more in health insurance premiums. The scheme is so confusing that 2/3 of those who received subsidies have to pay them back. However, the executive director of California's health insurance exchange did receive a $65,000 bonus 4 months after receiving a raise. One has to admit, Obama's scheme is a pretty good racket for liberals. Obama's scheme contains multiple disincentives to hiring. Finally in Britain, land of the National Death Service, 10-year-old boy who suffered from a brain tumor was misdiagnosed as a viral infection. Now he only has months to live.

GOP States Will Encircle and Besiege the Obama Regime

The unprecedented breadth of the Republican majority — the party now controls 31 governorships and 68 of 98 partisan legislative chambers — all but guarantees a new tide of conservative laws. Republicans plan to launch a fresh assault on the Common Core education standards, press abortion regulations, cut personal and corporate income taxes and take up dozens of measures challenging the power of labor unions and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Decline and Fall of the EU

In 2007, the EU accounted for 31 per cent of the world economy, measured at market prices. This year, it will account for only 22 per cent, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Eight years ago, the EU’s economy was a fifth bigger than the US’s; this year it is set to be smaller than America’s. Adjusted for differences in purchasing power – a euro stretches much further in a poor country than in a rich one – the EU now accounts for only a sixth of the global economy.
The EU is becoming increasingly irrelevant.

Obama's Health Insurance Scheme = Premium Increases

71% of people who received health care thanks to Obama's health insurance scheme actually received Medicaid and 55% of doctors already refuse to accept Medicaid patients. Oregon will increase health insurance premiums by up to 38.5%. "Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans — market leaders in many states — are seeking rate increases that average 23 percent in Illinois, 25 percent in North Carolina, 31 percent in Oklahoma, 36 percent in Tennessee and 54 percent in Minnesota...." New Mexico may increase premiums by 51.6% and Maryland may increase by 30.4%. In Britain, land of waiting lists, doctors may see 100 patients/day and patients still have to wait 4 weeks to see a general practitioner.

Social Welfare Offers More Graft Opportunities for Democrats

Cardiologist in Florida accused of defrauding Medicare of $18.2 million donated $450,000 to the Democrats. He obviously knows which party can keep his cash cow going. Meanwhile, social welfare continues to squeeze honest businesses. The president of an Indiana company said that he deliberately chose not to hire more employees to avoid Obama's health insurance scheme from being applied to him. Obama's health insurance scheme: Keep non-employment high! Minnesota may increase their health insurance premiums by more than 50% thanks to Obama's scheme. Since the enactment of Obama's scheme, 54 changes had to be made, showing how crummy the original law designed by the Obama regime was. Finally in Britain, land of the National Health Disservice, with government health care comes the inevitable government coercion as hundreds of thousands of patients are afraid of complaining about poor care and whistle blowers frequently suffer from retaliation. It takes an atmosphere of intimidation to keep government health care going.

Obama's Health Insurance Scheme is Built on Lies

Pennsylvania's health insurance premiums may rise by up to 39%. The GOP remain largely united in their determination to repeal Obama's scheme. States continue to have trouble implementing Obama's scheme. Legal challenges remain and the scheme remains highly unpopular. The scheme is also far more expensive than Obama pretended it would be. More of Obama's health insurance scheme lies exposed. There is a "culture of unaccountability" in the Veterans' Affairs Dept. Finally in Britain, land of rationing health care, hearing aids are being rationed.

More Legal Challenges Against Obama's Health Insurance Scheme

Aside from the challenge from the House of Representatives on the Obama regime's assumption of the appropriation power of Congress, Sissel v. HHS will hoist the Chief Justice Roberts on his own petard. Since Roberts defended Obama's scheme by claiming that it is a tax, all tax measures can only originate from the House, not the Senate. The House law suit may also be bolstered by a recent ruling of the Roberts Court on the Arizona redistricting case. While the Roberts Court again defended Obama's scheme, it will only lead to the demise of the state health insurance exchanges. Thanks to Obama's scheme, Massachusetts will raise its health insurance premiums by 21% and Illinois by 29%. Finally in Britain, land of the death panels, another woman died during childbirth at Homerton University Hospital in east London. It was the 5th such death since 2013 in the same hospital.

The Crime of Helping Employees Pay for Health Insurance

The Obama regime will fine "[s]mall businesses that reimburse employees for the cost of premiums for individual health insurance policies or pay their health costs directly..." $36,500/employee/year. Thanks to Obama's health insurance scheme, Oregon may raise its heath insurance premium by 25%. The underinsured population of the US leapt from 12% in 2003 to 23% now. No matter how bad a situation is, Obama can always make it worse. On the other hand, executives of Obama's health co-ops are paid $263,000 to $587,000. In Britain, land of the National Health Disservice, private pharmacists are being brought in to treat emergency room patients. This is a familiar story now, the private sector coming to the rescue of the incompetent government sector.

Robotics and Ethics

It doesn't look much like a dog, so it doesn't trigger any animal cruelty concerns with me. The underlying problem about cruelty is not about the victim, but the perpetrator. If the attack is unjustifiable, then the victim's conscience should be at peace. It's the perpetrator's conscience that should be troubled. Cruelty brutalizes the perpetrator as well as the victim, but the former may adjust to it much easier than the latter. The ancient Chinese said that the greatest tragedy lies in the death of the heart, the death of the body is secondary. Therefore, the evil of cruelty is the way that, through repeated exposures, the perpetrator might become used to it and perhaps even begin to enjoy it.
