Michelle Obama, pushing hard to sign up healthy young suckers for Obamacare before registration closes soon, declared that the counselors who help people through the confusing process of enrolling are “doing God’s work.” Which is good, considering that her husband’s administration has done everything possible to downsize the actual number of hours that God Himself is employed.
They say he likes the Hillary stuff.
Grover Norquist, a supposed conservative who has done absolutely nothing of import for conservatism offered his opinion on which right-wing candidates can win the presidency.
Surprise, surprise. Our most effective and conservative candidate is not on the list, and heading the list is another dhimmi.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul.
The 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference’s poll of conservative attitudes toward marijuana might surprise you.
41 percent of respondents said “Marijuana should be legalized for recreational and medical use and taxed,” while 21 percent said “Marijuana should be legalized only for medical purposes when prescribed by a doctor.”
31 percent said, “Marijuana should remain illegal” while 6 percent abstained from the question.
Two Legged Blue Eyed Cracker blew it up and there was a strangeness right around the sign that talked about health insurance. I don’t know how no one else caught that.
‘Suffocating pressure’: Former ThinkProgress writer describes White House ‘censorship’
Zaid Jilani, a former blogger with the left-wing think tank Center for American Progress, explained this week how the Obama administration frequently tries to censor the progressive organization’s content when it departs from the White House’s agenda.
Jiliani was reacting to two on-air protests by journalists opposed to Russia’s invasion of southern Ukraine. The two worked for Russia Today (RT) — an English-speaking media outlet funded directly by Moscow — and felt their bosses were trying to censor their opinions
In a post titled, ”How Working in Washington Taught Me We’re All A Little Like RT America,” Jilani explained how the White House frequently played the part of the Kremlin — leaning on management to push their writers in a particular direction, and punishing them if they strayed from the party line.
Spectacular pedestrian accident complete with added flourishes. (I love how most of the Russian people just drive away.)
A twenty-dollar bill dropped into a storm drain led to a Lawton, Oklahoma man being stuck in the city’s underground water drainage system for two days. The man told police that he dropped the money into a storm water drain. He said that he had no choice but to go in after the lost money. But once underground, he lost his way, leaving him with little to do but hope someone would hear his calls for help.
A group of high school students walking home from school through the intersection heard a strange voice coming from the manhole and quickly realized that it was a man calling for help. They called 911 and once on the scene, it was hard for officers to believe what they heard.
After being burned by his nomination of Debo Adegbile to head up the civil rights division at the Department of Justice, President Obama has jumped right back into the fray with another radical nominee, this time for Surgeon General.
But what makes Vivek Hallegere Murthy such a controversial choice for the post is not what you might expect. It’s not that he is a champion of late-term abortions (though he probably is) or believes in fully government-subsidized sex reassignment surgeries (though he probably does).
The problem with Murthy, rather, is his position on guns. Namely, he thinks one of the questions doctors should ask patients during a routine medical history is whether the person has any guns in his home.
Investors.com notes that Murthy, 36, is president and co-founder of Doctors for America, an anti-gun group that advocates making gun control a facet of the practice of medicine.
Libyan rebels have loaded oil on board a North Korean flagged tanker. The renegade militiamen previously seized control of a port facility in eastern Libya and this is the first ship they been able to load.

Here’s a picture of one of the presentations from these meetings.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, American conservative and founder of Media Research Center, Brent Bozell, asserted that, from the standpoint of ideas, conservatives have, “allowed themselves to engage in philosophical discussions that have nothing to do with the conservative movement.” In fact, he says conservatives are entertaining ideas that are “anathema” to what conservatives traditionally believe. We have to keep in mind, says Bozell, “ Ronald Reagan wasn’t a success because he was a Republican. Ronald Reagan was a success because he was a conservative.”
“We have people who are, in the name of conservatism, pushing what they call ‘Big Government Conservatism,’ which is a contradiction.” Bozell says that there are conservatives that call themselves “national defense hawks” who want to deplete military spending. Moreover, according to Bozell, there are conservatives that say that they are “pro-life,” but they want to abandon social issues form the conservative conversation. “Basically you got ideas that are being presented as conservative but are anti-conservative.”
Leonard Smith hated pointless bureaucracy, thoughtless inefficiency and bad ideas born of good intentions. He loved his wife, admired and respected his children and liked just about every dog he ever met. He will be greatly missed by those he loved and those who loved him. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you cancel your subscription to The New York Times.
Leonard Smith would have thought that this obituary was about three paragraphs too long.
