Obamacare- a Personal Story
This story would be sad if it was not so funny along the way. This past week I learned, through confidential sources, that the company for which I have worked for the past 11 years would be dropping health care coverage on all its 2,000 employees at the venue where I personally work. They additionally employ several more thousand nationwide. Of course, everyone realized something | Read More »
#Obamacare watch: If you like your volunteer fire department… not @BarackObama’s problem, peasants!
Because the n-dimensional, urbane Democratic party geniuses that created this marvelous healthcare plan for us all have never actually grokked what ‘volunteer’ means in the first place. The International Association of Fire Chiefs has asked the Internal Revenue Service, which has partial oversight of the law, to clarify if current IRS treatment of volunteer firefighters as employees means their hose companies or towns must offer | Read More »
Tech at Night: The news catches up after Thanksgiving. $180k fine for participating in an attack.
Two reminders I usually make here. Use good passwords, and make sure not to run software you don’t trust. Keep your software updated. If you use it, consider switching away from the leading target online, Microsoft Windows. Government is trying to catch these guys, but you have to lock your own door at night.
Teenagers need to be monitored online. It’s for their protection against bad elements. Most parents would be disturbed to see their kids making videos like this, but without somebody watching, how would parents ever even know their kids were making video responses to requests by predators?

Rundown: Control of the Senate (UPDATE)
I’m gonna do something a little different from last time. I’m gonna split the races in five regions: South, Northeast, Midwest, West and Pacific Coast. Here we go. The South Alabama Nothing changed from last time. Safe R Arkansas Mark Pryor is in hot water with Tom Cotton as his top opponent. Polls show the race to be tied or close. I ultimately don’t see him | Read More »
Obamacare Is The Law. Of Course Harry Reid Considers His Buddies Exempt.
The reason powerful Leftists like Harry Reid get into politics is not to share the benefice of their enlightened and deeply philosophical ideology. Harry Reid got into politics to inflict his liberalism on the idiot plebes the way a rapist inflicts himself upon his victim. The man could care less whether the laws he passes help you little people. He sees no reason to hold himself accountable under those laws. The laws, you see, are for lesser beings, not Nietzschean Uber-Tools like Senator Harry Reid.
Now how could RMJ say such deprecating things about caring public servants like Senator Harry Reid? Why would he behave so badly and be such a vile, iniquitous hypocrite? In response to the first question, I’m saying bad things about a hateful and obnoxious man because Harry Reid just exempted his scumbag, poli-sci hack staff from Obamacare. Why, you ask? He does it for the same reason Ghengis Kahn inseminated women all over Asia. He can.

Poverty and competition
Think of this as a companion piece to “Poverty and Free Will” from yesterday, because now President Obama has jumped on Pope Francis’ remarks and used them to bash capitalism, so there’s more to say on the subject. Obama loves to use the language of markets and choice, stealing the trappings of capitalism to conceal socialist compulsion and political corruption. Challenged on the point, he | Read More »
Dilemma: Put personal info on HealthCare.gov or Facebook?
Day 65 of Obamacare’s Healthcare.gov roll-out also known as Day 4 of the President Obama-guaranteed new and improved re-launch produces lesson no. 65 on how not to build and launch a website. The latest “glitch”, around which Democrats have wrapped there’s-nothing-to-see-here-police tape, that “all” president’s lie about and about which Republicans are required to lead cheers lest they be accused of “rooting for failure”, concerns the security | Read More »
Actors’ Equity might want to have a word with @barackobama on his hiring practices.
Because I’m betting that these people didn’t have union cards: Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. [snip of biographical data about Monica Weeks] There were 18 other people standing with Weeks and the president on stage. Obama began his remarks by saying, “Thanks to Monica, thanks | Read More »
Salon.com Asst. Editor Elias Isquith Declares Obamacare Implementation “Sabotage”
All I did was demand Republicans insist Obamacare be implemented as it was designed and written. After all, the President himself tweeted out his signature on the law and declared it “the law of the land.”I’m sure Salon.com Assistant Editor Elias Isquith thinks Obamacare is the “law of the land” too. But he calls my demands that the law be faithfully implemented “sabotage.”His view is | Read More »
Immigration Reform (or Amnesty) is ultimately DEAD this Congress
I read a good column from Chris Cillizza at the Washington Post which he spoke of immigration and why it’s dead for this Congress at least. It was published back on the 25th. Here it is: President Obama gave a speech Monday in San Francisco calling on Congress to act on immigration reform! House Speaker John Boehner rejected the idea that immigration reform was dead at | Read More »
It’s time for Louisiana voters to heed the words of Mary Landrieu
In October of this year, Mary Landrieu (D-LA) stood on the Senate floor and told her constituents that her upcoming election should be a referendum on her vote for ObamaCare. Talking about voters and ObamaCare, the embattled Senator said: “We did not wake up one morning and declare this the law. The people of the United States declared this through us as their Representatives. If | Read More »
Insurers Could Get the Obamacare Blame and a Bailout
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech discuss the continuing problems with Obamacare’s rollout, the White House ever changing goal post and why insurers may get a big taxpayer bailout.

Say Merry Christmas and annoy a Liberal
ObamaCare is smoldering in rubble, and we should expect the Democrats to jump onto something – anything – that will give them a chance to stop talking about it. That’s why it was unsurprising to watch the Democrat Party launch themselves into a complete meltdown yesterday over a tee shirt sold in the National Republican Congressional Committee online store. The GOP committee, though, isn’t backing down. “Happy | Read More »
The GOP Establishment Cannot Be Defeated Unless You Help
We all know the names of the GOP establishment RINOs whom we love to hate; John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell in the Senate, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Pete King in the House. They and others are the ones pushing the Republican Party to embrace amnesty, they are the ones who wouldn’t support defunding Obamacare, they are the ones attacking Ted Cruz, and they are | Read More »
No, @barackobama will not fire anybody over #obamacare. Or anything else.
I understand Ed Morrissey’s point, here… A competent executive would have made examples of a few people long ago as a message to the rest to improve their work. The problem is that we don’t have competent executives in this administration, starting at the top. Obama won legislative achievements in his first term without any operational success, which went unnoticed because either the metrics for | Read More »
