Don't Believe the Obamacare Spin - Here's What's Still Wrong. By Kevin Glass
Excerpt: Today is the day of President Obama's self-imposed "deadline" for marked improvements in functionality for Healthcare.gov, a crucial cog in the Rube Goldberg machine of Obamacare.

The bureaucrats who answer to President Obama are the only people in the world who will be privy to the actual numbers.

Cnn: Democrats Voted Unanimously For Rule That Led To Insurance Cancellations
Excerpt: CNN reports that in September of 2010, in an attempt to let people keep their insurance plans, Senate Republicans tried to block the grandfather rule that is currently resulting in millions of Americans having their insurance policies cancelled. Democrats, including many who are facing re-election next year, unanimously voted to support the rule. The result, as we have seen, is two million already losing the insurance plan Obama repeatedly promised they could keep.

No Grounds for Claim That Affordable Care Act Lowers Health Care Costs. By Charles Blahous
Excerpt: .Faced with public anger, ACA supporters are now turning to another argument to promote the law: that the ACA is already working to hold down health care cost growth.

& Saving: Is There Global Warming? Reading
Long, but with a lot of links to facts. ~Bob. Excerpt: But, what if global warming is not what they say it is? What if the world's temperature is headed in the opposite direction? Global temperatures increased for twenty years from the late 1970s to the late 1990s but have either stopped warming or have begun to cool in the last seventeen years. The global warming and subsequent cooling were even predictable due to hundreds of years of historical trends and observation of the impact of variations in solar activity and ocean cycles on global temperatures. Did you know that in the past the Roman Period and Medieval Period were both several degrees warmer than today's temperature. The world then cooled at least four degrees from approx. 1450 to 1850.

Excerpt: For example, this past Wednesday brought news that the Prime Minister of Latvia has resigned because the roof of a shopping center in his country collapsed! Folks, take a minute to consider that! A politician taking the blame for something he had no control over! Now, can you imagine our national bliss if politicians in this country were willing to take the fall for at least those things they do screw up? Barack Hussein Obama wouldn't have lasted through that first year of his Presidency as he squandered a cool trillion dollars in pork barrel stimulus, promised to achieve 6 percent unemployment and bring the economy back! How much healthier would this country be if he had taken credit for that massive failure and snuck back to
even if he had managed to skate through the first disastrous four years
wouldn't you think the guy would have resigned after the Obamacare fiasco?

Liberal Media Loses Half Its Viewers
Excerpt: The liberal media has taken a dive in ratings and number of viewers in the past year. About half of CNN’s and MSNBC’s viewers have abandoned them. So, I guess that means they went from 12 to 6. I’m only joking. I’m sure they had well over a dozen viewers a year ago. And the truth is, everyone’s ratings went down. But CNN and MSNBC took the biggest hits.
