What Do You Think about
Obama Pardoning the Sequester
and Sending It to Portugal?

National Review Online, by Andrew Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/10/2013 4:48:01 PM

(Video)In a hilarious but revealing segment titled “Confusing Question of the Day,” late-night host Jimmy Kimmel gave us yet another example of low-information voters and their unwavering partiality. The question to passers-by: What do you think about Obama pardoning the sequester and sending it to Portugal?

Comments:
Yes, of course it´s laugh-out-loud funny, but then we want to cry, don´t we.

I don´t know that I believe that there are people who will just answer a question they couldn´t have any possible inkling of the answer to.

If these people aren´t ringers, then the issue isn´t about how ill informed people are about the sequester. It´s about how ill informed they are about the state of their own knowledge: they don´t know that they know nothing about a particular subject but proceed to pontificate anyway.

It might as well be an answer to a differential equation or a question about the long term effects of global warming. This is the lowest rung of stupidity.

I thought that these people might be "ringers", too. However after remembering the bit about "Obama´s stash" and free cell phones, this just might start a new theory that instead of man evolving into a higher life form from some slimy amoeba we are devolving into Democrats.

Some idiot Leftist told me today that the reason the IRS is late in issuing tax refunds is because of the sequester! As though cuts would be made in the one gummint agency that is growing in leaps and bounds.
I told him that the delay was indeed caused by the sequester, which has limited gummint cash. And Obama just gave a ton of cash to the A-rabs in Egypt. So, he will just have to wait until more tax money comes in to get his refund.

He believed me.

This was the most hysterical thing I have witnessed in a long time. Very much like Leno´s "Man on the Street" or whatever it was called.

What killed me was that despite no one had a clue what the question was about, they answered as if they knew (with exception of the last woman who said she did not know nuttin ´bout no sequester, she jus voted for hin cause hes black) what the sequester is and what it causes.

It would be great if every news and talk show had a segment like this to reveal how incredibly stupid and ignorant the public is regarding very important and serious events.

AUSTIN, Tex. — Luci Baines Johnson leaned forward in her father’s private suite at the L.B.J. Presidential Library, her voice breaking as she recounted the “agony of Vietnam” that engulfed Lyndon Baines Johnson and the pain she feels to this day of witnessing his presidency judged through the prism of a failed war. “Nobody wanted that war less than Lyndon Johnson,” said Ms. Johnson, 66, who is the president’s younger daughter. “No matter how hard he tried, he didn’t seem to be able to get out of that quagmire. Not only did he not get out of it in his lifetime,

SAN ANTONIO — Sen. Wendy Davis said Thursday that she supports same-sex marriage and that Attorney General Greg Abbott, her presumed general-election opponent in the race for governor, should stop defending the state´s ban. “It´s my strong belief that when people love each other and are desirous of creating a committed relationship with each other that they should be allowed to marry, regardless of their sexual orientation,” Davis told the Express-News editorial board.

SOCHI, Russia – T.J. Oshie added his name to the list of American Olympic heroes with a nerveless shootout performance that lifted the United States men’s ice hockey team to a heart-stopping 3-2 win over Russia at the Sochi Winter Games on Saturday. In a heavyweight clash that evoked memories of the 1980 Olympics ‘Miracle on Ice’ when a group of American college players upset the former-Soviet Union’s ‘Big Red Machine’, Oshie delivered the knockout punch scoring on four of his six attempts, including the winner, in an epic shootout to deny Russia its Lake Placid revenge. Regarded as a shootout specialist,

George Zimmerman says his problems continue. He told a Spanish language television station he is now homeless, battling post-traumatic stress disorder, more than $2 million in debt and lives in fear for his life. Zimmerman opened up on the Univision television show "Aquí y Ahora" (Here and Now) that will air Sunday on the Spanish language station at 7 p.m. Zimmerman also discussed his well-known struggle with 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, an African-American teen who was walking in Zimmerman´s neighborhood in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26, 2012. After he called the cops, the two got into a fight that ended with

On Presidents Day, we honor those men who helped start and guide our nation. Their leadership got us through the American Revolution, the Civil War, the Great Depression, two world wars and the Cold War. Until recently, they all seemed to understand what makes America exceptional. But now, we’re not in Kansas anymore.

SOCHI, Russia—After 10 days in Russia´s sparse Olympic frontier, Sonari Glinton glimpsed a beautiful green siren: the Starbucks mermaid on a crisp white coffee cup. Was she a mirage? Starbucks isn´t an Olympic sponsor and is therefore forbidden to have an official presence here. The nearest Starbucks is about 350 miles away by car in a little-known city called Rostov-on-Don. The only branded coffee player is supposed to be McDonald´s Corp. , which has been gaining grounds globally with its McCafé outlets. Olympic sponsors such as McDonald´s usually defend their turf more fiercely than a Team Canada goalie. But

WASHINGTON — Eric H. Holder Jr. sounds like a man who suddenly found a second wind. During his first four years as America´s top law enforcement officer, Holder´s tenure at the Justice Department seemed so unfocused and controversy-prone that even Democrats began to question what the nation´s first African American attorney general had accomplished, and whether he had the passion to stick it out. But since President Obama´s reelection, the 63-year-old Holder has tackled his responsibilities with newfound energy and determination, surprising critics and supporters alike by striking out on a broad, ambitious and unapologetically liberal agenda. He moved to

The American people still need to hear from Lois Lerner. That’s a point that can’t be made often enough. Remember her? She’s the IRS official who gave a statement before Congress declaring herself innocent of any wrongdoing — and then promptly took the Fifth. Recently, Congress unearthed another IRS e-mail on which she was copied, talking about taking “off-plan” a discussion about how to harass the 501(c)4 groups the IRS had targeted. Meanwhile, leaks from officials involved in the investigation claim the FBI has not found ­anything criminal. That’s an amazing finding, given the statement by the American Center for Law and Justice,

On Monday, August 17, 1942, in what would be the first of many partings over the next two years, Pat saw her husband off at Washington’s Union Station. Dick Nixon, then a 29-year-old lawyer for the government’s Office of Price Administration, endured a gloomy train ride to Rhode Island for two months of rigorous officer training at Quonset Point, the first week of which, Dick wrote Pat, “was the longest I’ve ever known.” He disliked studying naval science and ballistics and was no fan of the arduous physical training in the summer humidity. He found solace in his correspondence with

The Department of Health and Human Services added a high-dollar Democratic donor to its list of most-wanted fugitives on Friday in connection with a widespread scheme of alleged Medicare and Medicaid fraud. Dr. Yousef Kurdy owned and operated a California business called the Broadway Medical Center. He was arrested on charges of fraud, aggravated identity theft, aiding and abetting, criminal forfeiture, tax evasion, and violations of anti-kickback laws in January of 2012. According to investigators, Kurdy fraudulently billed Medicare and Medi-Cal, California’s state Medicaid agency, over $150,000 for fictional patient visits. “Investigators believe that Kurdy billed for office visits on dates that he

CHATTANOOGA, TENN. — The UAW suffered a devastating defeat at Volkswagen’s plant here as workers rejected union representation by a 712-626 margin.The defeat, which came despite Volkswagen’s neutrality, tarnishes UAW President Bob King’s legacy and could make it next to impossible for the union to extend its reach beyond domestic automakers.
“While we certainly would have liked a victory for workers here, we deeply respect the Volkswagen Global Group Works Council, Volkswagen management and (German union) IG Metall for doing their best to create a free and open atmosphere for workers to exercise their basic human right to form a union,” King said in a statement.

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — It’s a day of golf in Southern California for President Barack Obama while the nation’s capital recovers from this week’s snowfall. The White House says Obama teed off Saturday at the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Obama is spending the weekend at the estate. It used to be the winter home of the late billionaire philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. On Friday night, Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II met at Sunnylands for talks largely focused on Syria.

(snip) The question - "Does the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth" - was answered incorrectly by 26 per cent of respondents. Fewer than half of the respondents - 48 per cent - are aware that humans evolved from earlier species of animals and just 39 percent answered correctly that "the universe began with a huge explosion".

Americans watching the Affordable Care Act’s implementation are witnessing a government policy debacle that is as large as any in memory. It is hard to imagine a more vivid demonstration of the ruinous consequences of government stepping into a market in which it doesn’t belong. And, sadly, what we are seeing now is only the beginning of the policy’s failure. In its most updated assessment of the ACA, the government’s own Congressional Budget Office caught the Democrats flat-footed by projecting that the law is severely flawed on a number of fronts, matching in many ways what the ACA opponents clearly

America loves trucks. California? The Prius hybrid.

Nationally, Ford´s F-Series truck has been the bestselling vehicle for more than three decades.

Gaining the ‘freshman 15’ may no longer be the biggest nutritional issue facing some college students. A study recently published by the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior surveyed 354 students at Western Oregon University and found that 59 percent felt that they did not have enough access to affordable, healthy foods – a condition known as ‘food insecurity.´ As defined within the study, food insecurity is “the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods, and limited or uncertain ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways.”
