  • GEORGE P. BUSH: A BUSH CAN SURVIVE IN TRUMP POLITICAL WORLD

    AP ^ | May 21, 2:40 AM EDT | WILL WEISSERT
    DALLAS (AP) -- George P. Bush was talking about his future political plans - and how Donald Trump wouldn't reshape them - when two women approached, giddy with excitement. Eighteen months after he was elected Texas land commissioner and a few weeks past his 40th birthday, Bush is quietly continuing his family's legacy. The grandson of one former president and nephew of another, he remains a rising star in America's largest conservative state and is keeping alive the possibility that a political dynasty declared dead by many when his dad flamed out of the presidential race could yet again return...

Bernie Sanders was a bum who didn't earn a steady paycheck until he was 40 years old. He was a slob who lived in a shack with a dirt floor. He later wrote about masturbation and rape for left-wing rags for $50 a story. The Socialist then wormed his way into politics. Bernie had his electricity cut off a lot so he'd run an extension cord down to the basement. He couldn't...

    After giving a speech focusing in part on the erosion of trust between citizens and the police, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch thanked the prosecutor in the Michael Brown case for saying police officers in Missouri are "substandard," "lazy" and "incompetent." “You talked earlier about the support of varied and various departments," said Robert McCulloch, prosecuting attorney for St. Louis County, Missouri. "What I'd like to suggest, though, is that in my jurisdiction we have a number of departments that are substandard... and they tend to get substandard officers and they're paying them minimum wage in some cases - or...

    Under the Affordable Care Act, young adults are allowed to stay on their parents' health insurance up to age 26. Since people generally like the idea of helping their own children avoid sickness and financial ruin, this has been one of the law's more popular features. But how exactly has the rule changed life for American twentysomethings? According to one new study, it seems to have given them a bit more leeway to bum around and find themselves - which is just about what you'd expect to happen when getting a job isn't a prerequisite for getting insurance. In a...

    THE AMERICAN LAWN NEEDS TO DIE BY ERIC NICHOLSONWEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2015 My first inkling that America's lawn obsession might not be terribly healthy came around 1995. We'd just moved into a new house in Far North Dallas, and 10- or 11-year-old me decided that the next-door neighbor's lawn green and smooth as flawless as a golf-course fairway with manicured grass to cushion falls was the perfect spot for football. The neighbor, a hard-nosed high school track coach, promptly ran us off and upbraided my father for letting me trespass. This struck me as backward. What good was...

    When someone challenges the Speaker of the House (by a technical procedure known as declaring the office of the speakership "vacant"), usually the leadership holds what is basically a vote of confidence immediately to show that a majority of the members still support the Speaker. Otherwise it raises doubts about whether the Speaker still has the support of the majority of the members. But that's not what happened when Rep. Mark Meadows declared the office of the speaker vacant in late July in protest against the accomodationist policies of Speaker John Boehner. The House didn't hold any kind of vote...

    Could an app motivate marijuana users to exercise? The National Institutes of Health is giving $357,750 in taxpayer dollars through its National Institute on Drug Abuse to State University of New York at Buffalo to find out. Currently, marijuana (MJ) is the most popular illicit drug, but there are few effective interventions to help young adults (age 18 to 25 years) to reduce their MJ intake and avoid negative consequences, including dependence, the grant noted. This study will develop and initially test an intervention [personalized feedback on MJ use + a smartphone app to promote exercise/physical activity (PA) as a...

    Former U.S. postal worker who says he got lazy sentenced Its long been said that mail carriers deliver through snow, rain, heat and gloom of night. Maybe thats because if they fail to do the job right, they could end up charged with a federal crime. A now-former U.S. Postal Service worker from Eugene learned that the hard way after police recovered nearly 1,000 pieces of undelivered mail from two bins on his front porch in July. The bins contained primarily merchant advertisements (or junk mail), but included 27 voter ballots from Mays primary election and more than 200 items...

Too many of the voters who helped put Barack in office seem to be asleep at the wheel for these mid-term races, she complained.

I mean, if a person is overweight feasting on junk food, getting up to go to the polls and vote may be too daunting a task. Weve done all we could to try to eliminate impediments to...

She resorted to mocking Democrats as lazy and ungrammatical in hopes of motivating her dispirited base to the polls.

Matthews singled out close Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett and even First Lady Michelle Obama. "Let's get tough here," Matthews said. "Is this the problem of a second term that presidents get lazy, intellectually lazy, and cut off from the country and they start picking deputies for jobs instead of looking for the best people?" "The lazy thing to do is somebody leaves, you promote their deputy. This is, I think, part of the endemic problem of...

    The wheels are coming off the bulldozer that is the Obama administration. But that's not a particularly new development. What's new is that some Democrats and liberal media figures are beginning to speak out. These groups previously have unquestioningly supported Obama. They've gone to astonishing lengths to protect him and conspired with him to deceive the American people in covering up and evading accountability for his multitudinous scandals and his rampant incompetence all because liberals subscribe to an end-justifies-the-means philosophy of politics and governance. But is it conceivable that with the outrageously egregious Department of Veterans Affairs scandal, Obama's...

    President Obama has demonstrated leadership qualities ranging from poor to nonexistent. But is a president who lacks visible leadership qualities really such a bad thing? Or is he lazy like a fox? A lack of leadership -- whether deliberate or accidental -- can have a surprising upside, as none other than the French have historically exemplified. (And no, I'm not being facetious.) As a conservative whose heart leans firmly right, I would have thought the idea crazy until I moved to France four years ago, gaining insight into the mysterious French mind-set. I came to realize that there is a...

Sixteen years later, she hasn't looked back. Schwermer, now pushing 70, recently...

As president, BarackObama's now played four times what Bush did(24 outings) in his entire two terms in office [MSM: -crickets-] Although Dear Leader often bans cameras in a bid to prevent bad imaging, the numbers don't lie... this president is far more concerned with screwing around and taking lavish vacations than with fixing the gargantuan...

    What does he do all day? Are you impressed with the image of Obama-at-work left by Ryan Lizzas Obama Memos piece in the New Yorker? The Presidents decision-making methodat least as described in the pieceseems to consist mainly of checking boxes on memos his aides have written for him. They offer him four stimulus packages, none bigger than $890 billion. He does not ask for more but does push for an inspiring moon shot initiative. At first its a national smart gridhard not to get inspired just hearing those words! When aides explain that this isnt stimulating enough, he...

    Playing baseball games without keeping score. Parents not allowed to cheer for one side or the other at basketball games. Refusing to use red ink to grade tests because it's too jarring. No dodgeball. Participation trophies. Telling kids, "You're special," without their doing anything to show they're special. Newsflash: You may be special to God, your mommy, and your teacher just because you were born, but the rest of us aren't impressed. The world doesn't owe you a living, a promotion, or any special consideration at all. The people who tell you otherwise are doing it because they think you're...

    The laziest lighting job in Christmas history. Sometimes extreme apathy can lead to extreme ingenuity. With one simple word and a miniscule fraction of the effort, the guy on the right is expressing the exact same level of Christmas spirit as his show-offy, bigger-budgeted neighbor. Plus that guy borrowed a rake from him like three years ago, so it all evens out.

    Rising tuition, 'Occupy' spark new campus activismBy LINDSAY PETERSON | The Tampa Tribune Published: November 27, 2011 TAMPA - Dani Leppo planned to keep her head down, study and finish as fast as possible when she transferred from St. Petersburg College to the University of South Florida this year. But as she crossed campus one day, she saw a group of people holding signs saying tuition was going up 15 percent. An activist was born. "We can barely pay our bills," Leppo said, "and here they are raising tuition." USF government professor Harry Vanden sees the anger rising on campuses...

    A public school in Toronto has put a ban on most balls their kiddos toss around during recess because school administrators have deemed such projectiles dangerous. Well hello, wittle wussies. Hey, I’ve got an idea: Maybe we could get the overzealous Canadian ball-banner to take Holder’s job at the DOJ. Think about it. Given this Canuck’s proclivity toward protection I bet he’d make certain that thousands of AK-47s would not be purposefully given to Mexican drug cartels (which they could later use to kill our border agents). What’s that, you say? Dudley Do-Right can’t serve in the DOJ because he’s...
  • Sluggish Economy Blamed on Lazy Americans

    11/18/2011 9:23:31 PM PST · by John Semmens · 44 replies
    In his continuing quest to find the real killers of Americas prosperity, President Obama is now testing out the idea that laziness lies at the root of the prolonged recession were in. Look, we in government have been going all out trying to get the economy moving, the president told an audience of campaign supporters. In the last two years the federal government has spent more than it ever has before. Weve generously handed out money left and right. Weve added new guidelines and procedures to virtually every segment of industry in an effort to direct businesses toward a more...

    DNC fights back: Obama never called Americans lazy By Alicia M. Cohn - 11/17/11 09:55 AM ET The Democratic National Committee pushed back in a new Web ad Thursday, a response to attacks by Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Perry over President Obamas use of the word lazy. According to an email from a DNC aide, the ad is designed to prove Romney and Perry are being dishonest about what Obama really said and the context in which he said it. "Another gaffe. Another manipulation. Another attack we just can't believe," reads the ad's text. "We've been a...

    Leadership: President Obama told CEOs in Hawaii that the U.S. had been "lazy" in attracting foreign investment. Actually, the White House has been pretty busy demonizing it. The Obama administration has a record of making life miserable for foreign investors that put their capital on the line to create jobs in the U.S. Politically wedded to special interests such as Big Labor, White House officials have hurled scurrilous charges against foreign companies and muscled others in ways no domestic company would tolerate. Foreign investors also have been targets of punitive regulations disguised as "patriotism" and had contracts kicked out from...

    For some reason, Barack Obama has decided that part of his path to re-election will involve blaming his failures on the American people, who can be insulted into loving him again. This narrative involves convincing us that the American spirit was so degenerate by 2008 that not even the dazzling skills of the LIghtworker could save us… at least, not in a mere four years. In September, Obama declared that it was his unhappy duty to preside over “a great, great country that has gotten a little soft, and we didn’t have that same competitive edge that we needed over...
