  • The Economist Who Exposed ObamaCare

    Wall Street Journal ^ | Feb 7, 2014 | Joseph Rago
    The Chicago professor examined the law's incentives for the poor not to get a job or work harder, and this week Beltway budgeteers agreed. Mr. Mulligan studies how government choices influence the incentives and rewards for work—and many more people may recognize the University of Chicago professor as a serious economist after this week. That's because, more than anyone, Mr. Mulligan is responsible for the still-raging furor over the Congressional Budget Office's conclusion that ObamaCare will, in fact, harm growth and jobs. But then the CBO ... reported that by 2024 the equivalent of 2.5 million Americans who were otherwise...
  • Barack Obama is proving an embarrassing amateur on the world stage compared to George W. Bush

    In addition, and most importantly, George W. Bush was a conviction president on foreign policy matters, driven by a clear sense of the national interest. President Bush emphatically made his case to the American people and to the world, explaining why he believed the use of force was necessary, and dozens of countries decided to follow him. In the case of Barack Obama, whose foreign policy has been weak-kneed, confused and strategically incoherent, the president hasn’t effectively made the case for military intervention in Syria, and has made no serious effort to cultivate support both at home and abroad. President...
  • 'Bomb' Doc Was Fired From Hospital After Stalking Allegation (mentions "Occupy militant element")

    A doctor charged Saturday with possessing a large quantity of chemicals used in bomb-making spent 15 years on the staff of a Manhattan hospital until he was fired in 2006 for refusing to submit to a psychiatric evaluation when a nurse accused him of stalking her, court records show. Roberto Rivera, 60, was charged with recklessly creating a risk of widespread injury or damage after federal and local authorities found precursor chemicals used in the making of explosives in the basement of a Ridgewood house, Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said in a release Saturday afternoon. Rivera was being held...

    At a golf course in Brisbane, players have an added incentive to hit shots clear of the water – a lake full of stranded sharks. A group of eight- to 10-foot-long bull sharks have been a feature of Carbrook Golf Club golf course since it was flooded by water from a nearby river. When the flood waters drained away, players noticed that some new aquatic residents had moved into lake near the 14th green. Although the sharks mainly eat pond fish, warning signs have been posted around the lake to deter members from going in to retrieve lost balls.

    And then there were four. A Las Vegas model claims she had an affair with Tiger Woods, bringing the tally to four women who have been publicly named, the Web site Radaronline.com is reporting. It may not stop there. Yet another woman claiming to have had an affair with the golf pro has offered to spill her guts, and will reportedly do so to a British newspaper in tomorrow's editions, according to the site. Radar also claims that two others are getting ready to come forward as well. The woman is identified as Las Vegas model Jamie Jungers, and she...

    In golf, they call it a mulligan. A do-over. There's no formal name for what President Obama and Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. did last night. After flubbing his one role on Inauguration Day -- administering the oath of office to Obama -- Roberts traveled to the White House to re-administer the oath. Just to make sure. "We decided it was so much fun . . .," Obama joked while sitting on a couch in the Map Room. Obama stood and walked over to make small talk with pool reporters as Roberts donned his black robe. "Are you ready...

Robert gibbs said the wh counsel, greg craig, believes the oath was fine Tuesday, but one word was out of sequence so they did this out of a "an abundance of caution."

    Once wasn't enough for The One. After Justice John Roberts butchered delivering the oath to President Barack Hussein Obama yesterday...he had to do it again...today...in the White House. Apparently several constitutional scholars, law abiding and deriding citizens that they are, advised the president he'd potentially suffer a legal challenge (from whom, Biden?) if he didn't do it right.

Kennedy Library and Museum here. In a move that surprised even his most servile toady -- clinton is not one ever to let the rule of law stand in his way -- the utter-failure impeached ex-ersatz president this time looked...

The resort is owned by a building-supply company, 84 Lumber, ranked by Forbes as the 101st largest privately held company in the United States and one of chain-smoking Daly's main sponsors.
