HAMMER TIME!!!!!!

King ObamaIn honor of our Sovereign King who rules by Executive Fiat…

That’s word because you know
U can’t touch this (oh-oh oh oh-oh-oh)

U can’t touch this (oh-oh oh oh-oh-oh)
Break it down
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh) (x4)
Stop Hammer time!!

In 2005, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 445, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 605. In 2006, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 438, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 618

In 2011, there was 323 murders committed with a rifle but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs.

And so the list goes, with the actual numbers changing somewhat from year to year, yet the fact that more people are killed with blunt objects each year remains constant.

For example, in 2011, there was 323 murders committed with a rifle but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs.

And it seems fairly obvious that if more people had a gun, less people would be inclined to try to hit them in the head with a hammer. 🙂

ILLEGAL ALIENS

Some statistics show that 12 people a day are killed by Illegal Aliens so they are far deadlier than “assault rifles” but will the Left ban them?

HELL NO!  They are the future of the Democrat Autocracy.

DRUNK DRIVERS

Some 4,000+ are killed every year by People who are drunk behind the wheel of a car.

So do we ban alcohol?

Nope. Tried that. it failed miserably.

Regulations?

Sort of. But it’s not that hard for a drunk to get booze and then drive off. People with multiple convictions for DUI and DWI are still driving.

So obviously we need King Obama I to pass more executive fiats to restrict the sale of alcohol. Maybe we need a government permit or a government approved store that runs background checks to see if you have every been arrested for DUI or DWI first before we let you have that fifth of Jack Daniels.

After all, it would save lives, especially of children and these kinds of things are always done in the name of children or “for the children”.

Most Commonm Reasons for Death and Injury

So what’s the conclusion….

Here’s a Shocker, especially for King Obama. IT’S ALL POLITICAL! 🙂

President Obama is using the national debate over gun violence to push for further action on his health care law, including insisting on the kind of mental health coverage states must provide under their Medicaid programs.

Mr. Obama, unveiling his gun proposals Wednesday barely a month after the deadly school shooting in Newtown, Conn., will make it clear that his health law, known as the Affordable Care Act, allows doctors to ask patients whether they have guns in their homes, and will tell them they are able to report any threats of violence they hear to police.

The president also will lay out the mental health coverage that all insurers will be required to provide under his signature-achievement law.

NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE!
That’s what this is all about, This is an opportunity to increase the ObamaCare government officials in schools!!

But you think I’m being absurd and over-the top. Just wait.

(UPI) — School officials in Maryland suspended two 6-year-old boys for pretending to shoot each other with imaginary guns, a move some parents call “ridiculous.”

Officials at a Talbot County elementary school suspended the two boys, who were playing cops and robbers during recess, using their fingers in the shape of imaginary guns, WJZ-TV, Baltimore, reported Tuesday.

“It’s ridiculous,” said parent Julia Merchant.

This is the second such incident in less than a month in Maryland, after 6-year-old Rodney Lynch was suspended from a Montgomery County school for pretending to fire an imaginary gun at a fellow student.

“They’re saying he threatened a student, threatened to shoot a student. He was playing,” said Rodney Lynch Sr., the boy’s father.

Child psychologist Dr. Joe Kaine said he did not believe Rodney was acting out of maliciousness, and most children that age can’t comprehend why something they consider fun might upset adults.

“I can certainly appreciate that at school, that’s not a type of play that they are going to endorse and I certainly support that, but that’s where we educate the time and place for doing things,” he said.

Leave it to government bureaucrats to top even the absurd.

But I Can’t Stop Now!

Michael Ramirez Cartoon

“At one point several weeks ago,” Boehner told the Wall Street Journal, “the president said to me, ‘We don’t have a spending problem.'”

That would be news to Obama’s debt commission, which in its final report made clear that spending is the driving force behind the nation’s debt crisis.

Here’s what the report said: “Even after the economy recovers, federal spending is projected to increase faster than revenues, so the government will have to continue borrowing money to spend.”

The panel added, “Over the long run, as the baby boomers retire and health care costs continue to grow, the situation will become far worse.”

And it recommended: “We should cut all excess spending — including defense, domestic programs, entitlement spending, and spending in the tax code.” (IBD)

But the Hard Core leftist meme seems to be that we can’t not pay the bills we already have so let’s ignore the spending problem.
That’s like saying I’m a shop-alcholic and I spend $3000 day (but take in a 300) and puts $10,000 on the credit card and then says “but I can’t stop now because I have bills to pay!!!”
It’s not rational.
So what we get is irrational partisan, protect-the-party at all costs, screw everyone else.

By 2022, federal revenues will top 19% of GDP, which is significantly higher than the post-World War II average. But spending will exceed 22%, and keep climbing.

Meanwhile, a Government Accountability Office report concluded that spending is “on an unsustainable long-term fiscal path” and blamed entitlements.

And countless Congressional Budget Office reports have documented how, left unchecked, federal entitlement programs will soon swamp the entire budget.

Apparently Obama didn’t read any of those, either.

When it comes to federal spending, Obama is like the alcoholic who says that the only drinking problem he has is when he can’t get a drink.

And we all drown in debt because of it.
The Following is from The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry about children of alcoholics.

A child being raised by a parent or caregiver who is suffering from alcohol abuse may have a variety of conflicting emotions that need to be addressed in order to avoid future problems. They are in a difficult position because they cannot go to their own parents for support. Some of the feelings can include the following:

  • Guilt. The child may see himself or herself as the main cause of the mother’s or father’s drinking.
  • Anxiety.  The child may worry constantly about the situation at home.  He or she may fear the alcoholic parent will become sick or injured, and may also fear fights and violence between the parents.
  • Embarrassment.  Parents may give the child the message that there is a terrible secret at home.  The ashamed child does not invite friends home and is afraid to ask anyone for help.
  • Inability to have close relationships.  Because the child has been disappointed by the drinking parent many times, he or she often does not trust others.
  • Confusion.  The alcoholic parent will change suddenly from being loving to angry, regardless of the child’s behavior.  A  regular daily schedule, which is very important for a child, does not exist because bedtimes and mealtimes are constantly changing.
  • Anger.  The child feels anger at the alcoholic parent for drinking, and may be angry at the non-alcoholic parent for lack of support and protection.
  • Depression.  The child feels lonely and helpless to change the situation.

Although the child tries to keep the alcoholism a secret, teachers, relatives, other adults, or friends may sense that something is wrong.  Teachers and caregivers should be aware that the following behaviors may signal a drinking or other problem at home:

  • Failure in school; truancy
  • Lack of friends; withdrawal from classmates
  • Delinquent behavior, such as stealing or violence
  • Frequent physical complaints, such as headaches or stomachaches
  • Abuse of drugs or alcohol; or
  • Aggression towards other children
  • Risk taking behaviors
  • Depression or suicidal thoughts or behavior

Now consider the denial by the left of the problem, the hatred they spew for anyone even mentioning it and wanting to “fix it”. The Guilt trips, the bribes, the fear, the anxiety of yet another Crisis that doesn’t go to waste.

Fear, Guilt, Intimidation, Anger, Irrational Behavior, Denial…sound familiar?

Even though, not all children of alcoholic parents are adversely affected. An overwhelming number of evidence has shown that alcohol dependence runs in families. So, children of alcoholic parents can often time find themselves following in their parents’ footsteps

The one who don’t of course are ridiculed as “morons” “stupid” “violent” “racist” “neo-con” “baggers”  and you don’t want to be one of those now do you! 🙂

So like most authoritarian dictators you educate them young into your ways before they know it, they are drug addicts just like you.

Welcome to the 21st Century drunk on the power of money and the power that money brings. And all we want is another drink…

And what we really need is an Adult Intervention because we are dying of alcohol poisoning and our kids are drowning because of it.

Feel Good Government

The Driver Alcohol Detection Systems for Safety, as the new approach is called, would use sensors that would measure blood alcohol content in one of two possible ways: either by analyzing a driver’s breath or through the skin, using sophisticated touch-based sensors placed strategically on steering wheels and door locks, for example.

Both methods eliminate the need for drivers to take any extra steps, and those who are sober would not be delayed in getting on the road, researchers said.

“Even if the technology is 99.9 percent reliable, that’s still tens of thousands of cars that won’t start every day,” said Longwell (beverage industry). Her group also questions whether a .08 limit would actually be high enough to stop all drunken drivers, since blood alcohol content can rise in people during a trip depending on factors such as how recently they drank and how much they ate.

“It’s going to eliminate the ability of people to have a glass of wine with dinner or a beer at a ballgame and then drive home, something that is perfectly safe and currently legal in all 50 states,” she said. (News-Sentinel)

And Big Brother wants to make this Standard Equipment on ALL vehicles in the future.

Doesn’t that just make you “feel” good? 🙂

OBAMACARE

Out of the 20 new or higher taxes in Obamacare, there are five that fall most directly on seniors.

The first is the excise tax penalty for failure to comply with Obamacare’s individual mandate. Many seniors face a coverage gap between retirement and Medicare eligibility. Obamacare raises taxes on these younger seniors by punishing them if they don’t purchase “qualifying health insurance.” Set to go into effect in 2014, the excise tax penalty for mandate non-compliance will in 2016 rise to 2.5% of adjusted gross income for a senior couple (or $1,390 for those making less than $55,600).

Why does Obamacare raise taxes on seniors just as they are entering retirement? Many of these seniors will face this “stick” but find themselves with too much income to qualify for the “carrot” of tax credits to purchase Obamacare health insurance plans in an exchange. Many will be forced to keep working just to avoid paying this tax.

The second tax hike on seniors is the so-called “Cadillac Plan” excise tax. Starting in 2018, Obamacare imposes a whopping 40% excise tax on high-cost (“Cadillac plan”) health insurance plans. This is defined for seniors as a plan whose premiums exceed $29,450 for a family plan, or $11,500 for a single senior. Seniors often face higher costs in health insurance premiums due to chronic health conditions and other risk factors. This tax will fall almost exclusively on the seniors with the greatest health insurance needs.

Third is Obamacare’s dividends tax hike. Starting in 2013, the top tax rate on dividends is scheduled to rise from 15% today to 39.6%. In addition, Obamacare imposes a dividend “surtax” of 3.8% on families making more than $250,000 per year. That would create a top dividend tax rate of 43.4%, nearly triple today’s rate. This will fall very hard on seniors. According to the Tax Foundation’s analysis of IRS data, 70% of households over age 55 receive dividend income. Seventy-one percent of all dividends paid flow to these households. To raise taxes on dividends is to raise taxes on seniors.

Then there’s the medical device excise tax. Obamacare imposes a new excise tax on medical device manufacturers in 2013. These companies will surely build the cost of this new tax into the price of what they sell. Who buys medical devices? Who buys pacemakers, wheelchairs and other costly medical devices? Seniors do.

Finally, Obamacare reduces allowable medical itemized deductions. Under current law, medical itemized deductions can be claimed on tax returns, but they must be reduced by 7.5% of adjusted gross income. Obamacare increases this “haircut” to 10% of AGI in 2013. This will mean that millions of Americans claiming medical itemized deductions will no longer be able to. The same IRS data as above tells us that 60% of all tax filers claiming this deduction are over age 55.

All of the tax increases in Obamacare will hurt seniors, but these five fall on them directly and hardest.

BILL MAHER

Alexandra Pelosi (daughter of Minority Leader) and Bill Maher came up with a video that seems to slam the welfare state.

At first I thought it was just a political reaction to being slammed by the Hypocrite misogynist label and up to the last line I copied I was with that.

Then read the last line I copied and you see that it was much, much more cynical and ideological than even I thought.

Pelosi’s video then offered the perspective of those in the welfare line.

“I’m here tryin’ to get some Obama bucks, that’s what I’m doin’, trying to get some Obama money,” said one man in a Yankees baseball cap.

“I am here to get some benefits, you know I mean, I’m here to get a check,” said another man as he blew smoke in the air. “Bitch, I wanna check.”

Everyone featured in the video promised to vote for President Barack Obama.

“Cause, he gives me stuff,” a woman answered when asked why she likes Obama.

“Cause he’s black,” said another man.

One man admitted to not working in a decade. Another explained he cannot work because of his background as a former convict, and another man added that he deserves benefits because of the country’s history of slavery.

The subjects of Pelosi’s film admitted that they don’t want to work — just a free check.

After screening the film, Pelosi explained that the outrage should not be against welfare recipients, but rather the defense budget, which she claims dwarfs the welfare budget. (DC)

There’s the ideological truth. It’s not the entitlement me-me-me mentality, but the Defense Department’s Fault!
FOOD POLICE
“Red meat blamed for 1 in 10 early deaths,” blares the headline.
OH MY GOD!!!
WE ALL HAVE TO BE VEGANS NOW OR WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE TOMORROW!!!
Consider the conclusion that red meat increases the risk of dying by 10 to 20 percent. Anything less than a 100% increased risk — a relative risk of 2 — can be considered pretty weak, according to experts. According to the National Cancer Institute, “Relative risks of less than 2 are considered small and are usually difficult to interpret. Such increases may be due to chance, statistical bias, or the effect of confounding factors that are sometimes not evident.”
Cigarettes were at 1000%, FYI.
Studies like the red meat/mortality piece are also quickly filtered through propaganda machines, which further muddy the waters. In this case, animal-rights groups were quick to seize on the evidence as proof that their vegan lifestyle is worth emulating. (Too bad they left out the study’s findings — assuming we take them at face value — that eating white meat, fish, and low-fat dairy products reduce the risk of dying.)

As a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed points out, if the government can mandate that insurers cover birth control, can’t it require employers to provide free coffee, which has been linked to a number of health benefits, including protective effects against Alzheimer’s?

Imagine then that the government decides, after enough weak studies, that being a vegetarian or vegan is healthier than being a meat-eater. Can it force tofurkey and soy “chik’n” on every office cafeteria in the name of public health? Can it ban milk from school lunches?

Or imagine the opposite — if enough studies show that beef is found to improve health, will Hindu employers be forced to provide hamburgers?

If you look at enough studies, you can “prove” just about anything. The fact that health is now in the eye of a political beholder shouldn’t instill much confidence in anyone. As the latest hubbub over insurance coverage of “the pill” shows, it just takes a couple of bad apples in the government to spoil how individuals and groups want to live their lives. (DC)

But remember, We are from The Government and we know better than you, we are smarter than you, and we a just plain superior to you so you should do everything we say regardless.
I know I “feel” better! 🙂
