Obama Orders Overtime

Posted by madjillmom on March 14, 2014

A few days ago, Obama said this:

“Today, I’m gonna use my pen to give more Americans the chance to earn overtime pay that they deserve. … If you have to work more, you should get paid more.” 

With the stroke of a pen, he doubles the threshold of overtime for workers. It means that someone making $900 a week is now eligible for overtime rather than making less then $450 (give or take). Great. HE is giving the benefit, so is HE going to pay it? No. The man who couldn’t run a newsstand is now ordering all small businesses to pay overtime to so many more people. Where does HE think this money comes from? So now look for more people to be choked down to less hours in less jobs across the land.

Just a lot more of that magical thinking that edicts from on high make business sense. He is once again buying peoples votes with other people’s money.

Katy Perry and Security at the Embassies

Posted by madjillmom on February 27, 2014

Katy Perry has a video that offends Islam and Mohammed. I hope Sec. of State John Kerry has beefed up the security of consulates/embassies in the Muslim world. And I hope someone has issued an arrest warrant to the video producer/director/costume designer so this won’t result in the death of another Ambassador.

Soldiers, Surfers, and Food Stamps

Posted by madjillmom on February 25, 2014

Yesterday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, Obama’s hatchet man for the military, announced drastic cuts in our armed forces. The proposal would cut our military to levels not seen since before WW2. So now, military families will see cuts in their benefits, and will be subject to wholesale layoffs in a high unemployment “recovery”. This will weaken the military at a time when the world is ever more dangerous. China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea are all looking at this de-facto surrender.

Also, yesterday, Jesse Watters tracked down the San Diego surfer dude that was featured in a Fox News special last year on the subject of food stamps. This able-bodied 29-year-old was receiving food stamps and using them to buy lobster as needed  While interview last night, his drug riddled mind clings to the hope of a being a rock and roll star rather than growing up. Please note that while the interview was going on, he was smoking regular cigarettes.

The upshot of all this is Obama wants to cut the military but not the benefits for the deluded surfer who lives better on this perk he is handed by Uncle Sam courtesy of hard-working people. Here is the message from Obama. Sign up to defend our country against its enemies, get laid off. Sign up to surf all day, eat lobster on the taxpayer so you have enough left over to buy cigarettes, no problem, no cuts. Further last week, Obama raised minimum wage to 10.10 (once again courtesy of the tax payer) so the people working in the mess hall, dishing up the food to our nations soldiers, is being paid more that those soldiers. Message to military men – leave the military and get a job surfing on welfare or slinging hash and you will do better.

Jesse Watters asked Surfer Dude about our national debt. The surfer dude had no clue. Neither does Obama.

Sen. Harry Reid disses Bob Gates for Book

Posted by madjillmom on January 17, 2014

So Senator Harry Reid (D-Nevada), the Senate Majority Leader, is castigating Bob Gates for writing a book to make money. It really annoys him to be denigrated by a pier. Just where did Harry Reid get his money? He has worked in government for decades. Never apparently worked int he private sector. He comes from a real poor area yet seems to have amassed a fortune during his government service. Just search for “harry reid’s money” and you will see lots of stories about him being mob backed, shady land deals, stock deals with insider information, and at least one book he wrote (The Good Fight,that he did not give away). This article is pretty recent. Check it out. Bob Gates is speaking truth to power, but that isn’t good when the power is a Democrat. Irritable Bowel Syndrome might account for the constant look on Harry Reid’s face. Harry Reid needs to go back to Searchlight, Nevada and count his millions. Getting rich while working in Government is nothing to be proud of.

Obamacare Sign Up Problems – Part 13??

Posted by madjillmom on October 23, 2013

This morning I went on healthcare.gov to check on my account. I was able to get an account last Saturday, 4 days ago. It is still “in progress” and so I cannot see what is available beyond it. There is also some kind of message it says is there concerning marketplace eligibility, but I cannot see it or read it. So I am stuck. Went to chat to see what was going on. Talked with someone called Raven. Is that name made up?

She said that sometimes the pop-up blocker causes issues. Not cookies, but the pop-up blocker. I went and took off the blocker. Why would a computer program want you to disable a security feature. According to eHow, a pop-up blocker is a security measure.

Pop up blockers can help prevent your computer from receiving unwanted spyware or ads that could possibly harm your system. By allowing it to block ads, you can control the type of windows that are allowed to be viewed on your computer. It can help you from clicking on links that could possibly spread a virus, adware or spyware on your computer.

I will try to go back on tomorrow if my computer hasn’t gotten infected with a virus because I took down the pop-up blocker.

When I asked Raven how long it takes to go from “in process” to done, she couldn’t help me and told me to try back every few days to check on it. Great answer. Keep trying. OK.

Obama’s Economy and the Bankers

Posted by madjillmom on October 2, 2013

SHALLOW and VULNERABLE

Today, Obama called in a whole bunch of bigwig bankers for a meeting (photo-op). Many are under threat of fines and prosecution by Obama’s Justice Dept. so they came a runnin’. After Obama asked them to back his position on the Government shutdown, they came out and spoke with the press. The take away on this is when the banker said that the “recovery is shallow and vulnerable” and could not withstand an assault like the shutdown. Why is this ongoing weakest recovery unable to withstand any assault? Because Obama has done everything to make this recovery the weakest ever and he doesn’t understand that he creates headwinds the economy must fight, like Dodd-Frank, Obamacare, the Humongous Stimulus filled with green boondoggles that didn’t do anything good. Throw in raised taxes and further uncertainty and the economy (fed by crack from the Federal Reserve) keeps dragging on the bottom. Way to go, Pres. Obama. Good job. Weakest “Recovery” Evah!

FBI.gov Pics of Naval Yard Shooter

Posted by madjillmom on September 16, 2013

Watched the latest press conference on the Naval Yard shooter. FBI lady told us to go to  FBI.gov to see shooter. Went there and can’t see pics of that shooter. I can see pics of Boston Bombers, articles on ’63 Birmingham Church Bombing, and some more stuff on recent serial killer guys. If you tell us to go to FBI.gov, make sure the pics are front and center, easy to find.

Sending Help to Syrian Rebels

Posted by madjillmom on June 14, 2013

Now that Obama has dithered for so long, announcement today that we are sending some equipment into Syria. Obama has finally decided that his red line has been crossed.

Why has Obama waited until 93,000 have been killed? Because of Libya. He waltzed into Libya, sent weapons to Libya, and got an American Ambassador and 3 others killed. Libya took too long and didn’t stay fixed.

So now, he has to do something. Now that Russia, Hezbollah, and Iran are backing up Asad. Great move, Pres. Obama. That is some real bravery.

While I note that is no good options in Syria, Obama has taken a bad thing and bungled it mightily.

Happy New Year

Posted by madjillmom on December 31, 2012

I do hope we all have a happy and prosperous New Year. I don’t have much hope for that now that Obama will be with us for another 4 years.
