ObamaCare: Cruel April Fools Joke
Yesterday, was the deadline – March 31, 2014 – the last day to submit an application for ObamaCare. Yet HealthCare.gov had another “glitch.” On the last day to apply for ObamaCare, the ObamaCare website couldn’t accept new applications.
It’s a derisively cruel April Fools joke.
But that’s what ObamaCare is, a self-perpetuating, seemingly endless April Fools joke.

The “Cowardly” Senate Leaders Employ Another Budget Gimmick
Here is exhibit A of why we don’t trust current Senate leadership to do the right thing if they were to win back the majority; they refuse to block new spending when in the minority. Last week, House leadership decided to pass the “doc fix” bill (H.R. 4302) by voice vote. This bill reimburses healthcare providers for the scheduled 24 percent cut in payments for | Read More »

Tech at Night: NSA reform not likely to pass. Supreme Court takes on software patents.
This is one of those nights. I did some work looking into just how foolish the idea of state-run Internet is, and now I’m out of time to do this, sorry to say. Quick links time!
The Senate is taking up STELA. Let’s hope the Democrats now don’t inject something into this virtually must-pass legislation, after House Republicans were kind enough to hold back.

Satan, Witchcraft, Role Play, and Challengers
You may read this and believe it to be an April Fool’s Day joke. Sadly, it is not. And sadly, I must give a slight NSFW warning. Congressman Ted Yoho is one of the congressmen the Chamber of Commerce and Establishment have problems with. He was one of the congressmen who would not vote for John Boehner as Speaker. He has been one of those | Read More »

Obama Releases Criminal Aliens, Most Republicans Yawn
What happens when Republicans fuel the fire of Obama’s open borders agenda? He takes the prerogative to release dangerous illegal aliens onto our streets with no threat of political reprisal. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials last year released 68,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions, undercutting Democratic claims that President Obama has strictly enforced immigration laws. An internal Department of Homeland Security document compiling statistics | Read More »

The Left’s Ever-Expanding, All-Encompassing Net Neutrality
Network Neutrality is socialism for the Internet – it guarantees everyone equal amounts of nothing. We’ll let college professor and avowed Marxist (please pardon the redundancy) Robert McChesney identify Net Neutrality’s objective: “(T)he ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.” How very Hugo Chavez of them.

Possible voter fraud involving Covered California. DEFINITE incompetence in handling it.
For the record, even if this story is true I still do not think that this represents a concerted effort: A local couple called 10News concerned after they received an envelope from the state’s Obamacare website, Covered California. Inside was a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an “x” in the box next to Democratic Party. The couple – who did | Read More »
Erick’s hilarious review of Darren Aronofsky’s new film “Noah” makes it sound ripe for the “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ treatment. John Nolte at Breitbart salutes the technical achievements and solid acting performances, while condemning the overall message of the movie as “brilliantly sinister anti-Christian filmmaking.” Personally, I was of the “let’s give the movie a chance before we condemn it” school during the last few | Read More »
Lt Gov. Anthony Brown’s utter failure: Maryland #Obamacare exchange to be scrapped.
Over a hundred million dollars’ worth of tax money – partially my tax money – down the drain: “Maryland officials are set to replace the state’s online health-insurance exchange with technology from Connecticut’s insurance marketplace, according to two people familiar with the decision, an acknowledgment that a system that has cost at least $125.5 million is broken beyond repair.” – This comes two months after | Read More »
