Obama´s NLRB protects
union thugs, not elderly

Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/27/2012 5:48:04 AM

President Obama portrays himself as a president who stands up for the most vulnerable in our society. Nursing home patients and their families in Connecticut got a look behind the rhetoric last week. In the name of standing up for workers´ rights, Obama´s National Labor Relations Board -- the one staffed by people he installed through controversial "recess appointments" when the Senate was in session -- sued to have a nursing home reinstate employees who went on strike. The Service Employees International Union members who worked at HealthBridge nursing homes went on strike after rejecting the company´s final offer in contract negotiations.

You know.there´s people on the right that are castigating people for signing succession petitions,calling them impracticable or people wouldn´t be able to survive without federal money coming to their states.

I can perfectly understand why people are doing it,whether the movement goes anywhere or not.We´re living under a half ass communist dictator who reviles all this country stands for and looting the treasury to keep the dems voting base happy.

These people have totally co-opted the AARP,a membership that millions of seniors rely on for truthful information. They just sent out a propaganda newsletter that reassured their members that Medicare is fine and Obamacare poses no threat.Of course these poor old people eat it up and pat themselves on the back for voting for Obama.

Unfortunately they don´t see what a demonic person Obama is behind the scenes.He fully intends to deny these people treatment at some point,blaming their own behavior for their heath problems.

If you´re a college grad/retired gov´t worker and in your 70´s or 80´s,the death panels will deem you worthy of a couple more life extensions vs. a coal miner or smoker at the same age who got what was coming to him.Political decisions will be made on your treatment instead of simple humanity.

All you have to do is look at the cold hearted British system who literally let people die of thirst.

Wasn´t this one of the long list of illegal actions that the phony republicans were going to fix?

The Roanoke College poll of Virginia residents (not voters) unsurprisingly finds Sen. Mark Warner (R-Va.) ahead by almost 30 points over just-announced Republican challenger Ed Gillespie. The good news for Gillespie, however, is below the top-line numbers. For one thing Warner’s identification with President Obama is problematic. (“Obama’s job approval rating has declined 5 points since October 30, 2013 Roanoke College Poll and now is at 38 percent (47% disapprove).”) If Gillespie can paint Warner as a rubber stamp for Obama’s key initiatives, he made be able to chip away at Warner’s claim to independence and moderation. Moreover, Warner doesn’t

Texas Rep. Steve Stockman, who is challenging Sen. John Cornyn in this year´s Republican primary, couldn´t find a picture of Cornyn smiling at President Obama. So someone on his team made one, repurposing an old photo of Florida´s Charlie Crist. The odd image was spotted by Politico´s Burgess Everett on Stockman´s breathless Cornyn Loves Obamacare website. Of the image, which is below, Burgess pointed out that it looked "like Cornyn´s face was photoshopped onto Biden´s head." Right idea; wrong guy. It´s actually a 2009 photo of Obama with Crist, who was governor of Florida at the time. Here´s the original image,

National Security Agency (NSA) veterans Bill Binney, Russ Tice and Kirk Wiebe spoke at a Friday news conference at the National Press Club, in Washington, D.C., with Tice declaring that the spy agency monitored Barack Obama’s telephone conversations—and those of his wife—in 2004, apparently as a result of Obama’s run for the U.S. Senate and emergence as a major figure in the Democratic Party. This should have been big news. However, the claim was ignored or dismissed by most of the major media. A major exception was NBC News, which posted a clip from the press conference and an item noting

Under our Constitution, a government agency may not act beyond the authority given it by Congress. Indeed, as the Supreme Court has said, “an agency literally has no power to act ... unless and until Congress confers power upon it.” The principle is basic, but in a significant matter the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Obama has ignored it, to say no worse. Fortunately, a lawsuit now moving forward in the nation’s capital promises to compel the agency to quit its conspicuous overreaching. At issue is the Fair Housing Act (FHA) and the meaning of its provision

For Detroit, the road in and out of U.S. bankruptcy court is paved with casino money. An economic lifeline, wagering tax revenue from the city´s three casinos is at the heart of the bankruptcy plan submitted by Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr, and it is behind the surprise rejection of a deal with banks last week that has thrown a wrench into Detroit´s route and timing to recovery. Moreover, some $330 million in assistance pledged by a coalition of philanthropic groups, including the Ford Foundation and the Kresge Foundation, will not begin flowing to Detroit until it exits bankruptcy, the head

In a wide-ranging interview with the New Yorker, President Obama characteristically saw fit to cast aspersions on those who disagree with him.

The Most Expensive, the Most Corrupt, and
the Most Dangerous Olympics in History

There is a good summation of the problems with the Sochi Winter Olympics by Frances Weaver in The Week today. It’s about what you’d expect from modern day Russia ruled by former KGB agent Vladamir Putin. In fact, the Olympic movement hasn’t seen anything remotely like it. First, the cost: $51 billion. By contrast, the Vancouver Olympics in 2010 cost around $8 billion. And Putin, who showed up in Guatemala in 2007 to personally lobby the IOC for Sochi, received the bid largely because he promised to spend $12 billion. How does $12 billion turn into $51 billion?

The Obama administration gave the latest no-bid Obamacare website contract to a company whose former top analytic researcher developed the complex voter-tracking computer strategies that led Obama to victory in 2012. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a division of Kathleen Sebelius’ Department of Health and Human Services, recently fired Obamacare website contractor CGI Federal after the botched website rollout that began in October — though CGI Federal still holds five major tech contracts with CMS that are valid for at least another year. CMS replaced CGI Federal — which employs Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate and White House Christmas dinner guest

Why are these Games so unusual? Their location, for one. The bewildering decision to hold the Winter Olympics at the balmy Black Sea resort of Sochi has been a significant contributor to the Games´ astonishing $51 billion price tag — the largest in Olympic history, and quadruple Russia´s original estimate. The athletes´ exploits could also be overshadowed by protests over Russia´s recent anti-gay law, and the foreboding threat of terrorism from Sochi´s neighboring restive North Caucasus region. But Russian President Vladimir Putin is determined to make Sochi a huge success, having spent so many rubles in the hopes that the Olympics

Let’s face it — Wendy Davis has as much chance of winning the gubernatorial election in Texas as Richard Sherman has as a candidate for Ambassador to Canada. Greg Abbott is outraising her on the campaign trail, and will likely outpace her on the hustings as well, and is considered a large favorite for a big win in November, despite Davis’ supposedly compelling biography. And as for that, it turns out to be less compelling than advertised anyway:(Snip)Besides, Davis’ entire platform rests on the claim that abortion doesn’t kill human lives, an assertion rebutted by elementary biology and in opposition

Conservative activists haven’t exactly been beating the drums for Chris Christie to run for president in 2016 — many view him as too accommodating to the left and too much a creature of the Republican East Coast establishment. But as they watch the bridge traffic scandal unfold in New Jersey, jeopardizing the New Jersey governor’s political future, some are finding that an old maxim holds true: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” In their eyes, the mainstream media is the enemy. Its unrelenting coverage of Christie’s troubles over the past 10 days is generating a surprising level of sympathy

The NFL is reportedly considering abolishing the extra point after touchdowns as part of its scoring system. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told the NFL Network on Monday that the league´s Competition Committee is looking at proposals that would end extra point kicks after touchdowns in favor of a revised scoring system. "The extra point is almost automatic," Goodell told the network. "I believe we had five missed extra points this year out of 1,200 some odd (attempts). So it´s a very small fraction of the play, and you want to add excitement with every play." "There´s one proposal in particular that I´ve

The world’s richest 85 people control the same amount of wealth as the total held by half the world’s population, according to a report issued today by the British-based anti-poverty charity Oxfam. The means the world’s poorest 3,550,000,000 (3.55 billion) people must live on what the richest 85 possess. Another way to look at it: Each of the wealthiest 85 Earthlings has access to the resources available to about 42 million of the world’s poor, a population equal to the total number of people living in Canada, with those all those from Kentucky and Kansas tossed in.

As debate in Washington turns increasingly to the issue of income inequality, Gallup´s annual “Mood of the Nation” survey finds that two-thirds of Americans are dissatisfied with the current distribution of income and wealth in the U.S. When asked how satisfied they were with the “the way income and wealth are distributed in the U.S.,” 67 percent of respondents said they were dissatisfied, while 39 percent described themselves as very dissatisfied. In contrast, only 32 percent were content with America´s wealth distribution, and a scant 7 percent described themselves as very satisfied. While there is a sizable gap in sentiments

A new trend for male leggings, known as meggings, is about to hit the mainstream according to a new company which plans to make them accessible for all. Until now the super-tight trousers have been confined to the runway or worn only by rock stars but a new company plans to launch them on the high street. US duo Adam Freck and Andrew Volk, who launched their Chicago-based company Meggings Man Clothing in December, are specialising in leggings for the modern man. [Snip] Unlike traditional leggings, which are typically worn by women, ´meggings´ are designed for the male physique.

Older people do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe. Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full up, so to do humans take longer to access information, it has been suggested. Researchers say this slowing down it is not the same as cognitive decline. “The human brain works slower in old age,” said Dr. Michael Ramscar, “but only because we have stored more information over time. “The brains of older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know
