    Lawyer and his children... A lawyer, who had a wife and 12 children needed to move because his rental agreement was terminated by the owner, who wanted to reoccupy the home. He was having a lot of difficulty finding a new house. When he said, he had 12 children, no one would rent a home to him because they felt that the children would destroy the place. He couldn’t say he had no children, because he couldn't lie (as we all know, lawyers cannot, and do not lie). So, he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with...

    You see a dog enter a restaurant with a vest that says "service dog." How do you, or the restaurant, know if the dog is actually a trained service dog? It's a problem that has prompted more than a dozen states to crack down on people trying to pass off their pet as a service animal. "They make me angry, they really do," said Colleen Belanger. Belanger has a service dog and she is upset people are using fake service dogs. She said it is a growing concern as more and more people are taking advantage of the system. Some...
  • Beware: Obamacare Penalty Could Come Back

    The federal tax cut signed into law last week eliminates the federal penalty for not having health insurance, starting in 2019. That's good news for those who've been buying Obamacare to avoid the penalty, and even better news for those who've actually been paying the penalty. But don't start celebrating yet. In New York, California, Maryland, Connecticut, New Jersey and other deep blue strongholds, the insurance industry and left-wing activists are agitating to enact state penalties to replace the soon-to-be defunct federal one. Ouch! Six-and-a-half million filers paid the federal penalty last year, including approximately 400,000 right here in New...
  • Battle in the streets? Leftist agitators vow to stop pro-Trump 'scum

    Following weeks of street protests by the left, Americans are holding rallies to support the new commander in chief, but leftist agitators are vowing to disrupt the patriotic events. The “Spirit of America Rallies,” which have been taking place around the country since February, will culminate this weekend, with most scheduled for Saturday, March 4, including one in Washington, D.C., at LayFayette Square, beginning at 1 p.m. But they won’t be the only ones on the streets, as self-styled “antifa” have vowed to disrupt some of the protests, sparking fears of conflict. One group of such leftists has already announced...
  • The House Just Did Something Sneaky to Pass the 'Doc Fix'

    House GOP leaders on Thursday used a voice vote to pass a temporary health care fix, surprising members. Maneuvering around last-second snags with some backroom intrigue, House GOP leaders used a voice vote Thursday to pass another temporary patch to prevent a massive cut to doctors' Medicare payments. The decision by Republican leaders to circumvent the planned roll-call vote caught many of their own members by surprise. "They voiced it? Oh, my God," exclaimed Budget Chairman Paul Ryan as he walked onto the House floor. Democrats could have opposed the process and demanded a roll-call vote be taken, but...

    I've noticed for a while now that Huckabee has picked up the meme of the GOP-E that conservatives are injuring the Republican Party. That was the point of liberal Scot Brown on his show this week...normalizing a liberal. I've also noticed a few articles saying the Hucklebug is again interested in running for office. This probably means that Huck knows where the moneyed cronies are and has to curry favor with them. I've watched, and I always come away with the impression that the huckleberry points the finger at conservatives, at those who would primary the GOP establishment turncoats, and...

    What does gun control have to do with health care? As odd as it seems, Obamacare contains provisions that jeopardize gun ownership, especially for veterans. Anti-gun provisions were added to initial drafts of Obamacare legislation under the pretext of prohibiting people with mental illness – which can include PTSD - from owning guns. Fortunately, the NRA stepped in and got some of the worst language revised last December. Senate amendment 3276, Sec. 2716, part c. prohibits the creation of a firearms database and stops doctors from disclosing or collecting information relating to a patient’s firearms. Ironically, this provision was probably...

    The Hill ^ | 2/8/12 | Dick Morris
    President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are entering negotiations over — or seeking ratification of — five treaties that could radically limit our national sovereignty and the reach of our democratic institutions. Particularly scary is that the treaties, once signed and ratified, have the same status as constitutional law and cannot be altered or eclipsed by Congress or state legislatures. And their provisions must be enforced by U.S. courts. Those who wish to preserve our sovereignty and democratic control over our future must rally to block these treaties, either by pressing Obama and

    Today there were two important votes in the House of Representatives regarding Libya. In the first, a super-majority in the House rejected a measure to continue the US role in Libya. Yet when it came to crunch time, a bill to defund President Obama's military action in Libya failed. The vote was specifically to "limit the use of funds appropriated to the Department of Defense for United States Armed Forces in support of North Atlantic Treaty Organization Operation Unified Protector with respect to Libya, unless otherwise specifically authorized by law." 89 Republicans voted no (along with 149 Democrats). They voted...

    Amid bitter, recriminatory exchanges between the United States and Pakistan over the Osama bin Laden extermination, planned bilateral visits of President Asif Ali Zardari to Washington DC and a return trip of President Barack Obama to Islamabad are both in jeopardy. Ties between the two sides are expected to slide further following Pakistan's "outing" of the CIA station chief in Islamabad on Saturday. In a sign of how bad ties are between the two countries, Pakistani media on Saturday once again publicly named the CIA station chief in Islamabad, a breach of both protocol and trust, that is bound to...

    President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform legislation reportedly contains an added provision that would tax gold coin and bullion transactions. The tax comes in an obscure section of the tax code that deals with purchases by self-employed people and small businesses, ABC News reports. Starting Jan. 1, 2012, small businesses and self-employed people will have to issue 1099 forms, which are used to track and report the miscellaneous income associated with services rendered by independent contractors or self-employed individuals, for every vendor with whom they do more than $600 business in a calendar year. The new regulation is designed to gain...

    WASHINGTON — White House advisers pledged on Sunday to book administration officials on Fox News despite claims by the president's inner circle that the cable network is a GOP mouthpiece whose programming “is geared toward making money.” Last week, White House communications director Anita Dunn said Fox News operates “almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party.” On Sunday, Rahm Emanuel, President Barack Obama's chief of staff, said, “It is not a news organization so much as it has a perspective.” In response to the criticism, Fox News executive Michael Clemente on Sunday accused...

    Challenge may be death blow for Murtha rival BY MIKE FAHER The Tribune-Democrat February 22, 2008 — William Russell’s campaign to unseat U.S. Rep. John Murtha could meet an untimely end. A challenge filed in the state’s Commonwealth Court claims that Russell, a Johnstown Republican, does not have enough valid petition signatures to get his name on the April 22 primary ballot. If Russell were deemed ineligible, that would leave Murtha – a Democrat who has served 34 years in the House – with no opposition in this year’s elections. “Certainly, I intend to fight this,” Russell said Thursday.

    The headlines read: Iraq Body Count: Macabre Democratic Entertainment; NY Times Calls Army Corps of Engineers $2.7 Billion Flood Control A "Boondoggle"; Bush Faces Rising Complaints About Handling of Disaster; etc. The question on my mind is how many have died in this catastrophe, so far? Why can't our elected officials tell us how bad it really is? I hear newsfolks talk about bodies in the streets, in the water, inside attics, and nobody says how many. They either have no idea how bad it is, or they are deliberately keeping us from the truth. Why?
