Ow. Ow. My head hurts. How is it possible for one website’s costs to come anywhere near $2 billion? But a recent report by the Department of Health and Human Resources (HHS) indicates that Healthcare.gov, the troubled online market for Obamacare, is going to end up costing the federal government about 1.7 billion dollars:
The 60 contracts related to the development and operation of the Federal Marketplace started between January 2009 and January 2014. The purpose of the 60 contracts ranged from Read more [...]
Miley Cyrus has done it again.
It seems that she finds new ways to shock the world at each year's Video Music Awards (VMA's).
This time however, she shocked us in the best way possible... by appealing to the generosity and humanity of Americans everywhere by asking people to support her favorite charity. Watch as she once again... shocks the world.
That's a good thing you've done Ms. Cyrus.
If you'd like to see the charity that Cyrus is asking everyone to support - here is a link Read more [...]
BREAKING: Spokesman/caddy James Redder held a brief press conference this morning to discuss increasingly vicious criticism being leveled against professional golfer, Barack Obama. When asked by NJR news' Marianne Fellows about Obama's seeming lack of focus, and commitment in recent months, Redder has this to say:
"Professional golf is a very stressful and difficult sport. More difficult than anyone can imagine. It may seem like Mr. Obama has forgotten where his priorities lie, but the fact is that Read more [...]
Barack Obama has proven to be anti-Semitic in all of his dealings with Israel. Once our most trusted ally in the Middle East, Obama has trampled, ridiculed and offended that friendship with Israel.
Barack Obama has also proven that he is more loyal to the United Nations than to the United States. He continues to support the UN in almost everything they do. He readily agrees to allow the UN to supersede the US Constitution and trespass on US soil.
So is it any wonder that officials with the Read more [...]
The police department is claiming that the reason crime has gone down since their gun bill was passed is simple. It’s that they’ve been doing great police work in getting guns off the streets and out of the wrong hands.
But is that really all there is to it? Here’s The Blaze:
Robberies are down 20 percent this year, according to Chicago Police Department statistics. Burglaries are also down 20 percent, while motor vehicle thefts are down 26 percent.

The result of their manipulation has been to create a warming trend when in reality, there’s been a cooling trend. But Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) claims that they didn’t manipulate anything; that they “used world’s best practice and a peer reviewed process to modify the physical temperature records that had been recorded at weather stations across the country.” The Australian reported:
Researcher Jennifer Marohasy claims the adjusted records resemble “propaganda” rather Read more [...]

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is demanding an apology from Attorney General Eric Holder for smearing America's police...
“I think that some of the officials in Missouri like Governor Nixon, Senator McCaskill, and even the Attorney General of the United States made some irresponsible, inflammatory statements during this time which didn’t help the situation, insinuating that our law enforcement officers across the United States engage in some nefarious or systematic and cultural Read more [...]
Recently, some idiot teacher named Michael Kaechele positively compared the riots in Ferguson to the Boston Tea Party. Yes. He really did:
The tragic event of the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri have [sic] led to protests and rioting against police brutality. It brings to the surface (again) the institutional racism that has always been in our country. I think white privilege causes some to look at Ferguson as an excuse for criminal activity rather than a political protest. William Read more [...]

The state of Tennessee has started drug testing welfare recipients in an effort to curb the amount of state and federal money going to the purchase and use of illegal drugs. But so far, they have turned up almost nothing.
A recent article in Think Progress explains that the drug testing has proven that less than two percent of welfare users are on drugs (that’s way under the statewide 8 percent average). See, Republicans… you’re wasting money trying to reinforce your welfare-slashing narrative. Read more [...]
On Friday, I posted Crimes Dropping Year after Detroit Police Chief Tells Citizens to Arm Themselves about how various crime rates have been dropping in Detroit as more citizens are arming themselves. One comment the article received was from an obvious gun hater who stated:
“Another useless piece of gun propaganda.”
If baffles my mind that so many liberals don’t believe that arming law abiding citizens will help protect them and reduce crime. This person who commented seems to be blind or Read more [...]
Remember that restaurant that offered a “prayer discount?” The owner got pestered by the Freedom from Religion Foundation, and she eventually discontinued it. She didn’t want to have to deal with a lawsuit.
Well, here’s a business that offered a 10% “church bulletin discount.” All you have to do to qualify for the discount is bring in a church bulletin. (I noticed that the discount was offered on Sunday, when the business should be closed, considering that it’s owned by a Christian, Read more [...]
