Apparently a THIRD video has surfaced where the "Grub" as I have now named him, disses the American people's collective intelligence. I admit, it's not a surprise given we elected his boss twice but they hate to be caught with their mic on making candid comments. I grew up with professors as parents and I assure you this is their attitude toward us, the great unwashed whose tax dollars pay their overblown salaries. It was not a mystery to any of us who understand the delivery of healthcare that this was a gigantic scam, sold with lies and arm twisting in Congress that was never intended to help people obtain quality and affordable healthcare. Instead it was a power grab and a wealth transfer, orchestrated by the "elites" in Washington and shoved down on the unfortunate American people who still have two years under this horrible man. The only saving grace is that Americans are waking up that they've been duped. They are realizing there is no free lunch and given there are more takers than makers in this scheme, more angry Americans who spoke at the polls on November 4th. Further in making Justice Roberts look like a complete moron, it will be difficult to promote the theory that the subsidies were intended for anyone NOT on a state exchange. That too was an extortion scheme that thankfully didn't work. I look forward to the SCOTUS decision and the final nail on the coffin of this would be zombie Obamacare.

How To Stop Being Poor

The opening phrase is the "money line." Indeed, many of us had episodes of poverty but we were focused on getting OUT rather than staying mired in it . We looked for that helping hand at the end of our arm instead of Uncle Sugar to bail us out. Unfortunately for the current generation(s) the poverty pimps are out there selling these programs instead of encouraging productive behavior. The easy money for college has resulted in so many young people awash in debt with few job prospects from their 'studies" degree. Instead of pimping student loans, college admissions offices should provide counseling and a real preview of coming attractions if you go into debt for a useless degree. While we were always encouraged to get some kind of part time or summer job, today's youth spend their evenings and weekends involved with sports, video games, or hanging out. The massive influx of illegals have removed the usual suspects for teen employment...restaurants, landscaping, farm work...all of which I and my 70s era classmates engaged in both during the school year and on summer break. It would never have occurred to us to look for a government solution to our problems. Now it seems to be the immediate option.
Well said! It's not that I care that Billy wants to become Sally, I just do not want to accommodate his delusions, pay for them or have them become untouchable with respect to the rights of others.

"I wear myself out in laughing when I see the human pretzels on the pages of the Post- who actually like to call themselves “wonks”- contort themselves into explanations why Obamacare is a great law, but, alas, just misunderstood. " Ah you must have been channeling Archbishop Chaput who said "Catholics justify themselves (voting for Obama the most pro abortion President in history) with the kind of moral and verbal gymnastics that should qualify as an Olympic event." Amazing how these folks think we do not see right through their Pretzel-;ogic.
What a fool. Had he half the knowledge of those Iowa farmers he disdains, he would have welcomed the chicken and suggested she send reinforcements. Chickens are great bug eaters, they scratch and dig up grubs in the soil. And there are few better fertilizers than chicken s**t which seems to also describe Mr Braley. I hope Iowa has better sense than to send this elite moron to Washington. There are already too many of his ilk there.
The irony is that it's much more likely a white Conservative is attacked for BEING a white Conservative. Oh and even worse a black Conservative. The animus is now beyond skin color and centered on one's politics. No one cares about the level of melanin in Obama's or Holder's or Johnson's skin. They are simply incompetent, corrupt and destructive.
Sadly I think you are right. There is something just WRONG with Obama. His way of thinking is like someone from another world. We have the evil intent of Al Capone with all of the political corruption of Tammany Hall. I recognized his complete lack of heart form the beginning. There is a heart of courage...and he's weak, petulant and petty...never displaying ANY courage of action or conviction. Then there is the heart of compassion, also missing. When I heard this man promoted allowing babies to die after botched abortions so "not to get between a woman and her doctor" I realized this was a complete sociopath looking only to pander to an interest group. Over and over I pleaded with his supporters in 2008. LISTEN TO HIM...he tells you what he wants to do. Unfortunately so many people seemed hypnotized. You would give them quotes...the old 'bitter clinging to their guns and God..." or "spread the wealth around..." and the person would laugh and say oh he doesn't mean that. He did, he does and he will until he's stopped.

Having a Laugh About Gluten

I agree, follow the money. As someone who watched with horror as the "low fat" craze created a nightmare of obesity and Diabetes when fat was replaced with sugar, I tend to be pretty skeptical by anyone including the government who promotes or prohibits certain foods. FWIW Celiac is not the only reason to avoid gluten. Through blood tests I learned that eating wheat caused other problems and any carbo overload adds to the insulin spiking that may result in the "diabestiy" combo. So be informed and don't jump on the latest bandwagon. If you think you have a problem with a particular type of food, work with a doctor who will do an evaluation, blood tests and help you eliminate certain foods as potential triggers for a bad reaction. As someone also with a friend who is severely compromised by Celiac, I am happy that there are some really tasty no gluten options now. This has expanded greatly and if people are being hoodwinked, some are truly getting a benefit by the expansion in no gluten products.
What is shocking is the reaction by the Left. They are HYSTERICAL. I mean aren't 16 out of 20 methods of birth control enough? Can't these women walk to Walgrens and get PlanB? I tell them when I was 17 years old, living in a small Podunk town, I could find access to IUDs, birth control pills and other forms of ABC...in 1974! We had a county health clinic, Planned Parenthood...no woman need wait and any payment was on a sliding scale. I think most products were a dollar or two at the time. Now we have come 50 years and adult women are reduced to begging...oh please Mr Boss, I can't figure out how to get birth control unless you hand it to me for free! I'm such a helpless little thing dontcha know! What has happened to women who used to be proud they could make decisions and take care of their uterus without being spoon fed by Uncle Sam or the boss? It's pathetic.
