Obama and the Pipeline

Posted by madjillmom on July 31, 2013

I have been out-of-pocket and really busy these last few weeks but I had to post something on Obama’s comments about the Keystone Pipeline. Yesterday, Obama derided the 50 permanent jobs the pipeline would create. As Steven Hayes said last night on Special Report, that is 50 more than Solyndra made. Obama said the pipeline wasn’t a jobs program because it will only result in 50 permanent jobs. A pipeline will employ thousands during the build out, but will eventually only provide employment for 50. Obama wants a “jobs program” from the government, and ignores the issue that the pipeline is not a government program, but rather an actual business that won’t cost the government money. In Obama’s warped view of things, only a government program is the answer to high unemployment. Only government spending and stimulus can create jobs.

Also today, economic growth numbers have come out again in the anemic range. They even lowered the growth numbers of the first quarter again. Without the oil industry growth, these GNP numbers would be even bleaker. Obama seems not to understand the government jobs suck life out of the economy, while companies and corporations create jobs that benefit the economy. His answer is always more spending or investment.

The DOJ, George Zimmerman, and Trayvon

Posted by madjillmom on July 10, 2013

So it wasn’t just that Trayvon Martin looked like the son of Pres. Barack Obama, it was also the DOJ putting their rather heavy thumb on the scales of Justice. Evidently some little known department of the DOJ had people aiding and abetting the demonstrations in Sanford, FL after the shooting of Trayvon Martin working on our dime. As we can remember, the police were not going to press charges, but the heat from demonstrators and racist warriors like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson became too much and the state gave in and prosecuted George Zimmerman. Turns out someone at DOJ was pulling strings and doing some “community organizing” to make sure George Zimmerman didn’t get off. I wonder what else the DOJ has done to make sure George gets convicted. Or maybe they are some of the voices out there calling for violent unrest if George is found not guilty.

State Department Lies

Posted by madjillmom on July 10, 2013

Since Hillary’s State Department got away with lying about Benghazi, John Kerry’s State Department has decided to follow suite. When questioned by the press about John Kerry being on his yacht while Morsi was being deposed, the State Department lied. Later they had to come out and admit that Kerry was indeed on his yacht. Our government is constantly lying to us.

Benghazi and State Department Facebook Spending

Posted by madjillmom on July 3, 2013

Between 2011 and 2013, Hillary Clinton and her people at the State Department were far more interested in spending money to get FaceBook “likes” than providing more security to the Ambassador to Libya, the murdered Chris Stevens. Way to go, Hillary! Don’t worry about actual security on the anniversary of 9/11, just make sure that the State Department gets a lot of “likes” on FB. According to reports, they spent over $600,000 of our tax dollars to accomplish this vital work.

Obamacare and the 2014 Election Cycle

Posted by madjillmom on July 3, 2013

Yesterday, the Obama administration delayed a key provision of Obamacare because they know it will hurt them in the midterm elections. They decided to delay until 2015 the provision that business provide insurance or pay a fine if the company has over 50 full-time employees. This provision will and has resulted in people being downgraded to part-time employees as well as people not being hired to stay below the 50 employee level.

This is happening on top of lots of delays and failures of key parts of Obamacare. The exchanges are looking doubtful and may not be ready in time this year. The long-term care provisions have been abandoned. In all ways, Obamacare has proved to be a bungled and burdensome bill with the administration coming in late or poorly done.

So, the Dems, seeing the handwriting on the wall, have decided to postpone another portion of the bill to better help them during the 2014 midterms.  The MSM is also now calling Obamacare the Affordable Care Act to de-link it from Obama. Remember when Obama said he was proud to call it Obamacare because Obama does care. Not anymore.

I predict that the requirement for the uninsured to buy very expensive health insurance starting next year will be delayed for the same reason – Dems and the mid-term election.

Obamerica

Posted by madjillmom on July 1, 2013

Since I love Instapundit and read it several times a day, I am seeing what I assume is Glenn Reynolds newest phrase that promises to provide lots of information for us all.

OBAMERICA

It is where we live now, and how we live now, as well as where we as a nation are going. I love the phrase but hate the reality of it.
