  • Americans increasingly prefer Democrats on healthcare: Reuters/Ipsos poll

    Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan.

    What utter rubbish! The question makes no sense. Why would you ask which party has the best healthcare plan? Neither party knows anything about health care!

    How stupid are we? I can understand asking about health care needs and wants of the American people. I can see asking people about their perceptions of what entails adequate heath care, etc. I can asking them where the greatest needs are for heath care, etc.

    But asking people which party has a better plan? Of course the Democrats. They have no budget. They need no budget. They just spend your money!

  • Virginia Republicans aren’t blinking in showdown over [McAuliffe] Medicaid expansion

    Virginia Republicans were supposed to be squirming by now. For months, their opposition to expanding Medi­caid under the Affordable Care Act has put them at odds with some traditional allies in the business world.

    Given that the source of this assertion is the Washington Post, I would do a fact check.

    I seriously doubt that the business world wants more big government and more Obamacare.

    The Washington Post is a propaganda agent for the Democrats, and willingly spin all information to the advantage of the Dems.

    In addition McAuliffe has been caught in a big lie about Medicaid expansion, insisting that he would NEVER use the budget of the State of Virginia as hostage to force Obamacare on the people of the commonwealth.

    Notice how the WP generalizes about "traditional" allies, and the need to cover the "poor." Who would argue with that? Where are the details?

    Maybe a recall election for McAuliffe is in order. IMO Virginia does not need liars as "leaders."

  • Voter Fraud: The Left's Tool For Social Justice

    Many leftists have contempt for the electoral process because they don’t believe in the electoral system as it is constituted in capitalist America. To them, elections are already a fraud – an instrument of the rich, or as Saul Alinsky prefers to call them, the Haves. If the electoral system doesn’t serve “the people,” but is only an instrument of the Haves, then election fraud is justified as the path to a future that will serve the Have-Nots, as David Horowitz has explained.

    Starting with the Clinton Administration, the will of the people is secondary. Lying, cheating, and corruption are used to get elected, just as McAuliffe lied about his intent to hold the budget hostage so he can force the State of Virginia to implement Obamacare. The shameless Democrats are determined to wreck the economy of the State of Virginia!

    The Democrats do many evil things that lead to chaos. That is where we are headed!

  • Pelosi: Race playing role in GOP's reluctance to move immigration bill

    04/10/2014 12:06:18 PM PDT · 23 of 24
    olezip to Sub-Driver
    Issues of race have made GOP leaders reluctant to back immigration reform, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) charged Thursday.

    Pelosi and the Democrats are getting boring with their blame game.

    Before she goes into one of her hysterical, nonsensical tirades, she should explain why the Democrats refuse to secure the borders. And then, in due time, deal with the illegal aliens already here.

    Pelosi could support initiatives to sort out and deport the criminal element and gang members, the then work with the lawmakers to come up with a compassionate approach for those hard working, law abiding, tax paying illegal immigrants who jumped the line to get into our country.

    There is no hurry to do that; they have been in this country for generations, and can wait until we have a fair and balanced remedy that is acceptable and fair to those who waited in line.

    Are the Democrats angry because we do not want to do again what we did in 1987 that only encouraged tens of millions more to illegally immigrate to the USA? Why implement a proven, failed policy?

  • Sen. Schumer Says Republicans Want Immigration Reform – But Don't Want To Vote On It

    In an interview on Monday with MSNBC, Schumer, who is from New York, said: “Most people are for immigration reform. Most Republicans, they’re in the vote-no, pray-yes caucus, they want it to pass as long as they don’t have to vote for it. I still think we have a chance to pass it this year.”

    This statement appears to be nonsense. The common sense approach is to close our borders to stop the influx of illegal aliens.

    Then, after our borders have been certified as secured, our lawmakers can deal with the vast number, say 20 million illegals already here, by sifting out the criminal element, gang members, etc., and returning them to their countries of origin.

    And then, deal in a compassionate manner with the otherwise law abiding, hard working people who are contributing to our economy, but who jumped the line to get here.

    The common sense approach is NOT acceptable to the Democrats, unfortunately. Schumer and his ilk want to PROMISE to close the border, later, if there is money for it, just as they did in 1987.

    There is no emergency to give amnesty right now because the influx of illegal aliens has been going on for decades. Secure our borders!

  • The McAuliffe Way: Not What The Framers Intended

    olezip to RightSideNews
    Mr. McAuliffe stated,point blank,he would not engage in partisan skullduggery to affect the expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare at the expense of the Virginia State budget, yet that is exactly what he is doing. Less than six months after taking office, Mr. McAuliffe is not only doing “a 180” on his campaign promise not to hold the budget hostage to his whim, but doing so at the expense of the State budget and the well-being of State government.

    Are members of the Main Stream Media asking Mr. McAuliffe about his promise not to hold the budget hostage? Is he admitting he only said that to get elected? Or, is he blaming others?

    Many voters voted for him because of their hatred for Cuccinelli, his Republican opponent for governor.

    I suspect that the Virginian voters will just shrug this off as "politics as usual." There is no integrity among the Democrats, but that is nothing new.

  • Honey Maid takes anti-gay backlash...and turns it into a message of love

    At the end of the 30-second spot, the two dads are again seen, this time in front of their house, posing with their baby and their other young son. A tagline accompanying the YouTube video reads, ‘No matter how things change, what makes us wholesome never will.’

    There is little that is "wholesome" about homosexual behavior.

    The consequences of homosexual activity have significantly increased the cost of medical care to the population at-large. Costs of diagnosis and testing have increased. Because of the risk of cancer and other diseases, a simple sore throat could be instead be caused by a sexually transmitted disease. Hemorrhoids could be instead anal cancer, rectal gonorrhea, or rectal chlamydia. You will pay for those additional costs, not corrupt lawmakers and lawyers in black robes, or foolish people who believe that men and women are freely interchangeable as long as they are in "love."

    The encoding into law perversion will adversely impact the culture resulting in the spread of AIDs and other STDs, the destruction of the family, and increased risk to the physical and mental health of the population, with attendant increases in cost of health care. What is wholesome about that?

    Are the Democrats taking our country forward? Forward to what? Higher taxes? Repressive regulation? Economic collapse? Hollowed out military? Cultural degradation? Socialism?

    Does Mrs. Clinton believe that our country has to be more like Cuba, Venezuela, or the EU? Is she willing to step up and admit her bloody role in Benghazi? Is that how the country should be run -- by directing the IRS, EPA, DoJ and other government agencies to focus their powers on her political enemies, Republicans and people like you?

    “We are on the verge of complete destruction of the system of international treaties, economic chaos, and political dictatorship. We are on the verge of war with our closest, kindred people of Ukraine, a sharp deterioration in relations with Europe and America, on the verge of a cold, and, perhaps, a hot war with them,” Zubov wrote.

    1783: Russia annexed Crimea.

    1853: The Crimean War began, lasting three years. Russia lost to an alliance of the Ottoman Empire, France, Britain and Sardinia. Crimea remained part of Russia.

    1917: Crimea briefly became a sovereign state before becoming a base for the White Army of anti-Bolshevik forces in the Russian War.

    1921: The peninsula, now called the Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, became part of the Soviet Union.

    1942: Nazi Germany took control of Crimea.

    1944: Joesph Stalin forcibly deported all Muslim Tatars, a group of 300,000 who had lived on the peninsula for centuries, due to members’ alleged cooperation with Germany during World War II. Many returned to Crimea in the 1980s and 1990s.

    1945: After World War II, the autonomous Soviet republic was dissolved and Crimea became a province of the Soviet Union called the Crimean Oblast.

    1954: Russian Premier Nikita Khrushchev transferred the Crimean Oblast to Ukraine. It’s often reported that it was a gesture of goodwill from Khrushchev, who had Ukrainian roots.

    1991: The Soviet Union collapsed. Many expected President Boris Yeltsin, the new president of the Russian Federation, to take Crimea for Russia. But he didn’t bring it up during negotiations with Ukraine.

    1997: Ukraine and Russia signed a treaty that allowed Russia to keep its fleet in Sevastopol. The agreement’s since been extended, so the fleet is set to remain there until at least 2042.

    Curly and Shultz were not football coaches; they were administrators responsible for protecting the Penn State community from sexual predators. They had the legal authority to pursue the alleged crime; they failed to do their jobs and blamed somebody who had not the administrative authority nor responsibility to investigate alleged crimes.

  • Overturning gay marriage ban would extend 'justice and equality,' says Episcopal bishop in Saginaw

    Bishop Todd Ousley on Thursday, March 13, stated that ending the ban, which U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman may do after hearing eight days of testimony during a trial for a Hazel Park couple's case against the state, would extend “justice and equality to all of God's children.”

    Sorry, Bishop Todd Ousley, but your argument is based on the false premise that men and women are interchangeable. Your argument does not apply to same sex marriage because men and women are NOT interchangeable.

    The consequences of homosexual activity have already increased the cost of medical care to the population at-large. Costs of diagnosis and testing have increased. Because of the risk of cancer and other diseases, a simple sore throat could be instead be caused by a sexually transmitted disease. Hemorrhoids could be instead anal cancer, rectal gonorrhea, or rectal chlamydia. Your flock will pay for those additional costs, not the clergy, not corrupt lawmakers and lawyers in black robes.

    The encoding into law perversion will adversely impact the culture resulting in the spread of AIDs and other STDs, the destruction of the family, and increased risk to the physical and mental health of the population, with attendant increases in cost of health care.

    Please take a "time out" to pray for guidance, Bishop.

    Sam Adams Pulls Its Sponsorship of St Patrick's Day Parade Over Gay Rights Boston parade organisers failed to reach an agreement with gay rights advocacy group, causing beer brewer to withdraw support

    Perhaps Sam Adams is the beer preferred by the homosexual crowd, so there will be no change in their sales and consumption.

    There are many other brands of beer as good as, or better, than Sam Adams. I found it a little pricey for an ordinary beer. I cannot quit because I never started after the first taste test. Good luck to them!

  • Cruz: Reid attacks Kochs as if they were the ‘Grinch’

    Reid has increasingly been critical of billionaires David and Charles Koch in the last two months, saying they’re trying to buy U.S. elections by throwing money at Tea Party candidates while hiding behind their political action groups, such as Americans for Prosperity.

    The "blame game" is one of the few options in the Democrat play book. But of course we must not ignore name calling.

    It would be nice if Reid explained to us exactly how he got re-elected, and how he got rich. Who are Reid's sources of campaign money? Why is Reid not mentioning the many billionaires helping the Democrats? Why is Reid being so unfair? Why is he lying about Obamacare by making liars of people who claim they were hurt by the Affordable Care Act? Why has he not resigned in disgrace?

  • A Conservative Case for Marriage Equality and Zots

    By denying certain individuals the ability to marry their loved ones, you are telling them that their relationship (and, by extension, their sexual orientation) is somehow inferior or “not as good” as your own.

    There are aspects and consequences of encoding into law same sex marriage that the proponents conveniently overlook.

    First of all, their argument is based on the false premise that sexual orientation does not matter, that is, men and women are interchangeable. Men and women are NOT interchangeable. The added costs of violating natural law are substantial.

    The consequences of homosexual activity have already significantly increased the cost of medical care to the population at-large. Costs of diagnosis and testing have increased. Because of the risk of cancer and other diseases, the once-simple diagnosis of a simple sore throat could be instead be caused by a sexually transmitted disease. Additional and costly tests are required where they once were not needed. Hemorrhoids could be instead anal cancer, rectal gonorrhea, or rectal chlamydia. You will pay for those additional costs, not corrupt lawmakers and lawyers in black robes, or misguided people who only want to help.

    The encoding into law perversion will adversely impact the culture resulting in the spread of AIDs and other STDs, the destruction of the family, and increased risk to the physical and mental health of the population, with attendant increases in cost of health care.

    All of this coming to your neighborhood thanks to misguided foolish people who wish to overlook the consequences to society of encoding into law deviant behavior.

  • Ukrainian Catholics fear 'new oppression' after Russian takeover

    "Our church has no legal status in the Russian Federation, so it's uncertain which laws will be applied if Crimea is annexed. We fear our churches will be confiscated and our clergy arrested," the priest said amid tensions over a planned March 16 referendum on whether the autonomous territory should join Russia or remain in Ukraine.

    I am very curious of what the Russian position is on what exactly the legal status of their church is or will be under the Russian Federation.

    At this juncture I believe that the people of Crimeria will be free to practice their religion, on the basis that I believe that Putin will support their position.

    “It's time to stop acting like those who ignore this crisis — the oil baron Koch brothers and their allies in Congress — have a valid point of view,” Reid said Monday evening. “But despite overwhelming scientific evidence and overwhelming public opinion, climate change deniers still exist. They exist in this country and in this Congress.”

    Despite overwhelming scientific evidence that climate change is caused by the Sun and not mankind, Reid continues to spout utter nonsense.

    A good thing about science is that it is true whether or not you believe it, regardless of "overwhelming public opinion."

    Reid is good at name calling and blaming others for his stupidity. He is a Democrat.

    While he has devoted followers among the tea party faction (and is tied with N.C. House Speaker Thom Tillis in a new poll), he would have little chance of winning even moderate Republicans in a general election, let alone any independents or Democrats.

    This comment fails the sanity test. There are too many voters with common sense who believe in fiscal responsibility; who believe that life begins at conception; who know that men and women are different; and who practice "In God we Trust."

    The real faction are the "Establishment Republicans" who are fooling themselves. In reality they are a growing minority, that is, their number is decreasing.

    I thought the show was very well produced. I can’t wait to see the other 12 episodes. Makes me want to go back and watch the old version of the show too. We need more science for the masses.

    It was a good show if you eliminate the unnecessary, awful, and inaccurate portion about Giordano Bruno.

    We watched Cosmos and enjoyed its beauty and the wonder of the universe it presented, and the compressed calendar of time. But the series wrecked its credibility by presenting an inaccurate view of Giordano Bruno as a martyr for science. Bruno was not a scientist; he was not executed for science. He was a religious philosopher. It was his pantheist beliefs that got him into trouble.

    Being so obviously wrong on the history of Bruno, and making him a martyr for science makes the entire series suspect as yet another propaganda tool of the left. We shall see.

    "We need to end the corruption. We need to eliminate corporate welfare and crony capitalism," he said later. "If you come to Washington and serve in Congress there should be a lifetime ban on lobbying, and we need to pass a strong constitutional amendment that puts into law term limits."

    The remarks of Cruz also apply to Ukraine. The USA has a long way to go on that trail to restore honesty to Washington.

    Limiting the number of lawyers would help, too, to decrease the propensity to corruption. Washington is a cesspool of lies, class envy, disinformation, revenge, and chaos.

    “And that is why personally I cannot be part of a station funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the action of Putin,” she said, reading from a statement.

    “I’m proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth. And that is why after this newscast I’m resigning.”

    How altruistic is her statement? Why does she believe that Putin's actions are a whitewash? What evidence can she offer?

    I watch RT from time to time. The Russian perspective on USA news is heavily slanted to the left, to the extent that I cannot even watch it for very long.

    Someone taking a pot shot at Putin based on Russia's sordid history does not necessarily reflect where Russia is today, does it?

    Their dept is 8% of GDP; our dept is 100% of GDP. Putin knows that men and women are different; the USA does not. Is there more?

    Because legal acceptance of gay marriage is being celebrated as a victory for civil liberties, it seems as if the media is really out to shame any country, person or group who does not toe the politically correct line on this issue.

    The "civil liberty" argument is based on the false premise that men and women are interchangeable. The civil liberty argument does not apply to same sex marriage because man and women are NOT interchangeable.

    The consequences of homosexual activity have already significantly increased the cost of medical care to the population at-large. Costs of diagnosis and testing have increased. Because of the risk of cancer and other diseases, a simple sore throat could be instead be caused by a sexually transmitted disease.

    “Now if this sounds familiar, it’s what Hitler did back in the 30s,” she said. “All the Germans that were ... the ethnic Germans, the Germans by ancestry who were in places like Czechoslovakia and Romania and other places, Hitler kept saying they’re not being treated right. I must go and protect my people and that’s what’s gotten everybody so nervous.”

    Russia has assets to protect in Sevastopol. Ukraine and Russia signed a treaty that allowed Russia to keep its fleet in Sevastopol. The agreement is that the Russian fleet is set to remain there until at least 2042. Furthermore, Crimea is 60% Russian. Crimea has a 200 year history of being Russian until it was given to the Ukraine in 1954 by the communists.

    Hillary is taking and running with half truths, hoping that no one will notice.
