Keystone Pipeline Decision – 8 More Agencies Must Weigh In

Posted by madjillmom on February 4, 2014

Remember after Obama lost the House in 2010, his 2011 State of the Union speech promised to eliminate duplication and excess regulation in our ever-growing government. His talking point was amusing, citing the salmon and the agencies that regulate it in freshwater, another in salt water, another when caught, and another when canned or sold. Guess he wasn’t able to do anything about that.  Another Obama promise flushed down the drain.

We have now heard from the State Department on the Keystone Pipeline. They say it won’t cause very much damage. So now, Obama can’t OK it because 8 more government agencies have to study it and weigh in. The 800 lb. gorilla is the EPA who won’t want it. What other agencies are the other 7?  It took 5 years to get to this point. Ridiculous.

While Obama fiddles and whines about Fox News, this oil will go to China. China gives not one whit about clean air and carbon in the atmosphere. If you love the world and want to protect it, build the pipeline. It is kind of funny how Obama uses his pen without authority to be King but won’t use his actual power on something like this.

Obama Pushes ObamaCare with Human Props Again!

Posted by madjillmom on December 4, 2013

Because we all know that Obamacare can only be saved if Obama gives a lot more speeches about it, the new rebranding is on. Obama gave a White House speech yesterday, pointing to the people props behind him, telling us how these people have benefited from this wonderful ObamaCare law. Strange thing is the White House would not release the names and circumstances of the people props he is using to tell us the Obamacare is the best thing since sliced peanut butter. So, as Reagan commanded, Trust by Verify.  Remember, many of the wonderful stories about Obamacare successes have proved to be false during these last few months. The President has proven beyond a doubt that he is willing to lie about Obamacare.

Obama Bending Over Backward

Posted by madjillmom on October 5, 2013

Eairlier, some weak in the knee “journalist” was interviewing Obama. Obama told this supporter journalist that he has “bent over backward” to work with Republicans. Laughter was the proper response, but the supporter journalist asked no followup question, like when had Obama ever done that. Here are some examples of Obama bending over backward.

Obama is bending over backward to make sure some WW2 vets can’t see the open air memorial on the mall in DC. He has told park rangers all over the country to make it hard on people, so he is paying for people to put up Barrycades rather than paying for a few people to empty the trash cans. He has paid workers to wire the Barrycades to make sure this area isn’t viewed by the greatest generation. He has told parks that are not run by the federal government to shut down. He has closed roads that run through other parks to maximize inconvenience for all in the area.

Obama is bending over backwards to make sequestration hurt people. He chose to shut down White House tours. He sent air traffic controllers home rather than do things in a common sense way. Once again, he wanted it to hurt rather than make reasonable adjustments to make sure the minimal cuts were carried out in a thoughtful way.

After being elected, Obama bent over backwards to make sure that Republicans knew that he was King. He lectured and told them that “he won”. While bending over backward, he wanted the Republicans to “kiss his ass”. During the first two years, he let them know that their input wasn’t welcome. Thus, Obamacare was born. No bipartisanship. Rammed down our throats.

Obama has bent over backwards to appear to be King. He has flouted the checks and balances that exist in our governmental system. The Defense of Marriage Act was law (just like Obamacare), but he decided not to enforce it. He has gone around immigration law with his Dream Act by fiat. He has even flouted his own signature law, Obamacare, by delaying the parts that would have hurt him politically.

What are the Real Numbers Enrolling in Obamacare?

Posted by madjillmom on October 3, 2013

Remember when Obama became President and a new definition of jobs came out – Saved and Created. They did this because the standard numbers weren’t and aren’t good enough so they made up an unverifiable number called Jobs Saved. It was kinda funny.

So now the Obama Administration is doing about the same thing. It has a new number it likes. Website hits on healthcare.gov. They are now telling us how many hits there have been on the site or state sites across the US. They tell us they are so happy to have the glitches caused by such high site traffic because it mean Obamacare is popular. Yet strangely, they can’t tell us how many have created accounts or how many have enrolled. They better hope the government stays shutdown because at some point they will have to give us the real numbers.

I have tried at least 7 times to set up an account. Have not be able to do so. I want to see what the policies will cost in our area. The only way to get the numbers is to set up an account. But that doesn’t mean I will purchase or enroll in an insurance plan offered.

Did Obama count me as seven people or just the one to further inflate the numbers on this

The California Obamacare website overstated their hits by 900%.  So let us all take their pride in Obamacare’s popularity with a lot of skepticism.  Kinda like those Jobs Saved.

Democrats Shut Down Government

Posted by madjillmom on October 1, 2013

The Dems in the Senate shut down Government. They did not negotiate with the Republicans. Obama and Reid say this “Do it our way and then we will talk.” The House sent over several options to keep the bloated government funded and the Dems turned it down every time. All sorts of compromise on the Republican side, none on the side of Dems. This “my way or the highway” mentality of the Dems is standard in the age of Obama. Obama doesn’t know what compromise is. The only way he can govern is by fiat and partisan bills like the Stimulus and Obamacare.

The Republicans will give in. Obama and the Dems will not talk to them or listen to them or compromise with them now or ever. The MSM has their backs. A shutdown hurts the Republicans, so the Dems did it.

Obama “red lines” only work on Republicans, not Putin, not Assad, not Iran, just the Republicans.
