It has been a good year for IST….lots of babbling going on…..I guess we can thank the midterms for the steady increase of crap being passed off as news or analysis…….gotta love this stuff……
1–Edition 7 begins with the words of a convicted FELON, Sen. Vitter of Louisiana………yep a felon and he still has a following……how sad is that?
Patriots? Fighting for our freedoms? That should tell the LA voter whose side this prick will be on once he becomes governor……bet your ass it will not be the poor or the middle class…..let the rape of the state begin!
2–I bet a lot of my conserv readers think that I pick on conservs more than Libs……and that I am somehow a secret Obama apologist……if so then they need to read more and think less.
Obama while on his European tour recently made a speech in The Hague about Russia’s annexation of Crimea and he said this…….
“The borders of Europe cannot be redrawn with force”…..
I believe that our prez may be a little short on historic accuracy…….there was these minor conflicts…..WW1 and WW2……after each the borders of Europe were redrawn…..and I believe that a small amount of force was needed…….World History 101……
3–Of course with an election approaching it s all about health care and Obamacare…….
Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), a physician and the current GOP front-runner to challenge Democrat Mary Landrieu for her U.S. Senate seat this November, told an annual meeting of the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association that uninsured Americans are “less sophisticated” and “less educated” people who might find the Affordable Care Act too complicated and cumbersome to take advantage of, BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski reports. The remarks came as Cassidy was promoting his own pared-down health care reform proposal that relies only on catastrophic insurance coverage and Health Savings Accounts.
I think actually reflects the reality of who the uninsured are, relatively less sophisticated, less comfortable with forms, less educated. Those are the folks that — not all — there’s a guy who goes to my church who’s uninsured, who’s middle-class but couldn’t get it because he has Type I diabetes. So it’s not all, but it is the folks who I think are going to have the hardest time reaching. [...]
We were fortunate growing up in the South. The president is a community organizer. You wonder if he ever worked with a poor person… Insurance people, they will tell you that they will go to a company and an employer will pay for everything, and there are some people who will not sign up. Turns out, those are my patients. They’re illiterate. I’m not saying that to be mean. I say that in compassion. They cannot read. The idea they’re going to go on the internet and work through a 16-page document to put in their data and sign up does not reflect on understanding of who is having the hardest time in our economy.
Yeah that is the way to win friends and influence voters……..look down on the electorat….a sure winner……but if he is right about the uneducated thing then he may well be the winner….conservs are less educated than libs…..
4–It looks like Alaska is trying to out do Texas….especially with idiots and their moronic statements…….this guy is a real “tool”………..
State Sen. Pete Kelly (R) said Monday before the Alaska Senate that birth control may not protect Alaskan women who drink regularly from getting pregnant.
“If you have people who are binge drinking or chronic drinkers, we’re hesitant to say ‘use birth control as your protection against fetal alcohol syndrome,’ because again, as I say, binge drinking is a problem,” he said. “If you think you can take birth control and then binge drink and hope not to produce a fetal alcohol syndrome baby, you may be very wrong. Sometimes these things don’t work. Sometimes people forget. Sometimes they administer birth control improperly, and you might produce a fetal alcohol syndrome baby.”
5–You know…..everyone is allowed their own opinion but NOT there own facts…..Obama did it again….trying to rewrite history to make his point…….
Obama appears now to be inventing events wholesale to try to rebrand them, claiming that in contrast to the Crimean secession, Kosovo seceded from Serbia after a referendum organized “in careful cooperation with the United Nations.”
Here is the FACT……..Kosovo’s provincial assembly did hold a referendum on the possibility of secession in 1991, but it was not done with UN backing, nor did the US or anyone else even recognize the result. Albania was the long state to recognize the vote, and it was never cited as justification in NATO’s 1999 war.
The only other referendum to take place in Kosovo came in 2012, under Obama’s watch. In that vote, 99% of Kosovar Serbs in several northern districts voted against being part of an independent Kosovo. As with the 1991 vote, the US rejected its validity.
I despise anyone that tries to rewrite history to their advantage…….
6–Our Prez needs to shut the Hell up….it is becoming pathetic at this point………
President Obama went on a lengthy diatribe about how the decade-long US occupation of Iraq, which left roughly a million people dead and the entire region awash in al-Qaeda factions, was nowhere near as bad a thing as Crimea.
Please someone tell him to shut up!
7–And lastly, Louie Gohmert is always good for an anal statement or two………I love his thought process in this one……
“But it was to be a one-way wall, where the state would not dictate to the church,” the Texas Republican insisted. “But the church would certainly play a role in the state.”
“So, that’s a little different idea than a lot of people have about separation of church and state now,” he added. “Including some of our esteemed Supreme Court, who are not quite as familiar with our history as they probably should be.”
What a douche! Personally, I do NOT want ANY religion dictating anything that has to do with governance……..this makes this a/hole NO better than those that want to Force others to live by their little beliefs……please Texas…replace this moron with someone with half a brain, please.
So ends another edition of B3………..next edition coming soon to a blog near you………
