Pelosi proves she thinks just like Jonathan Gruber by saying she doesn’t know of him

Nancy Pelosi Jonathan Gruber ObamacareIt seems like every day there is a new Jonathan Gruber quote proving the utter contempt that the architects of The Affordable Care Act hold for voters. The other day he was grinning as he talked about the “stupidity” of Americans, and now his comments from the Honors Colloquium 2012 at the University of Rhode Island are making the rounds: “It’s a very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter.” It’s all very telling, but not as telling as Nancy Pelosi proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that she thinks just like him.

On Thursday, Ms. Pelosi denied she knew of Mr. Gruber.

“I don’t know who he is. He didn’t help write our bill. And, so, with all due respect to your question, you have a person who wasn’t writing our bill commenting on what was going on when we were writing the bill.” — Nancy Pelosi on Jonathan Gruber, Nov. 13, 2014.

The Washington Post, however, points out that in 2009 she most certainly knew of Mr. Gruber and his work.

“Our bill brings down rates. I don’t know if you have seen Jonathan Gruber of MIT’s analysis of what the comparison is to the status quo versus what will happen in our bill for those who seek insurance within the exchange. Our bill takes down those cuts, even from now, and much less preventing the upward spiral.” — Nancy Pelosi on Jonathan Gruber, Nov 5, 2009.

Ms. Pelosi thinks you are stupid. There is no other explanation for someone who acts as if the Internet does not exist. Only a woman with little to no respect for the American public would tell a blatant lie on camera in 2014 when she knows — she must know — that the power of the Internet will expose her shortly thereafter.

Her chutzpah knows no bounds. She even touts Mr. Gruber’s work on her own website:

Pelosi GruberAs I said before, these are the people who want more control of the Internet in their hands. These are the people who will make sure “Net Neutrality” provides a “free” and “fair” Internet. The same woman who obviously thinks her lies disappear down Orwellian Memory Holes wants to control the Internet like a public utility.

Wake up, Millennials. “Hope and Change” was never about “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” It was about you being the ones that shameless liars were waiting for.

They admit behind closed doors that they think you are stupid. They admit behind closed doors that they seek to exploit your “lack of economic understanding.” And they will continue to lie and deceive until you send them home and deny them of the power and influence they so desperately crave.

Nancy Pelosi: Bush is to blame for Obama’s VA problems — and perhaps 1932 Bonus Army scandal

Pelosi blame someone else

Okay, you got me. Nancy Pelosi did not indicate that George W. Bush was possibly to blame for the Bonus Army march on Washington, D.C. in 1932, but one gets the feeling after hearing her blame ‘W’ for Obama’s VA problems — problems he knew about years ago and vowed to fix — that on the right day she might do so.

The Washington Examiner reported Friday:

 House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., repeatedly put the blame for the Veterans Affairs scandal on former President George W. Bush, while arguing that her party has worked hard for veterans in recent years.

Pelosi took a shot at Bush while saying that the scandal is a high priority for Obama. “He sees the ramifications of some seeds that were sown a long time ago, when you have two wars over a long period of time and many, many more, millions more veterans,” she told reporters during her Thursday press briefing. “And so, I know that he is upset about it.” …

“Maybe when we go into war, we should be thinking about its consequences and its ramifications,” Pelosi said while discussing the scandal. “You would think that would be a given, but maybe it wasn’t. And so, we go in a war in Afghanistan, leave Afghanistan for Iraq with unfinished business in Afghanistan. Ten years later, we have all of these additional veterans. In the past five years, two million more veterans needing benefits from the VA. That’s a huge, huge increase.”

Where do I start? Where would the military be if its members played the blame game like members of Congress? What sort of national security would we have if the entire chain of command spent its limited time and resources coming up with creative way to blame the guy before him? If you ever wanted to know why so many military men downright loathe politicians, Nancy Pelosi’s “blame Bush” speech regarding the VA hospital scandal is a great example. What’s worse is that Bush went to Congress to get approval for both wars. Even a liberal guy like Dennis Kucinich understands the importance behind that historical fact (as inconvenient as it might be for Nancy Pelosi). But I digress.

Perhaps the best way for me to respond is by giving voice to some military guys on one of my favorite sites: Doctrine Man. I love its humor and the moderator’s eye for news, but the comments sections on many stories are often hilarious.

Here are a few responses to Nancy Pelosi’s redirect:

 

Doctrine Man VA

I have to give a hat tip to Matt Martin for the “still Bush’s fault” for the VA problems from the 1970s comment. It made me laugh and inspired the “Bonus Army” headline.

The VA is not perfect and never will be, but when a man like Obama holds himself up as the keeper of the “Sacred Trust,” then it is beyond pathetic for he and his acolytes to shift blame onto a man over five years removed from office.

Major Garret reported for National Journal May 20:

Running for president in May of 2008, then-Sen. Barack Obama delivered a stem-winder on mismanagement of veterans care under President George W. Bush, recalling the story of an 89-year-old South Carolina veteran who committed suicide after being repeatedly denied access to health care.

“How can we let this happen?” Obama thundered in front of a podium in Charleston, W.Va., that read, “A Sacred Trust; Support our Veterans.” “How is that acceptable in the United States of America? The answer is, it’s not. It’s an outrage. And it’s a betrayal, a betrayal of the ideals that we ask our troops to risk their lives for.”

Well. Well.

A veteran committed suicide because he couldn’t obtain VA care. In South Carolina. The Democratic front-runner for the White House called it an outrage. And yet, when at least six veterans died due to delayed access to colonoscopies in Columbia, S.C., neither Obama nor his Veterans Affairs Department said a word. The deaths were first reported in April. At a subsequent field hearing in Columbia, one veteran testified he contracted cancer because VA doctors ignored pleas for a colonoscopy and misdiagnosed severe rectal bleeding and pain as hemorrhoids. The response from Veterans Affairs officials and, by extension, Obama? We’ll get back to you. …

“The president has been nowhere to be found,” [The House Veterans’ Affairs Committee Jeff Miller (R-Fla.)] said. “The White House truly thought this would go away over time. But the pressure is mounting. Whistle-blowers are coming forward. They see strength in numbers.”

And with that, I would merely request that you watch Jon Stewart’s intellectual atom bomb explode on the VA scandal if you haven’t already. It’s a must-see.

I look forward to Nancy Pelosi’s future press conference, where she blames George W. Bush for the low moral of General George Washington’s troops in the winter of 1777.

 

 

Hoyer: Congress ‘has a paying-for problem’ (i.e., Hoyer thinks you’re an idiot)

Steny Hoyer

The United States is closing in on being $17 trillion in debt. Do a little research on just how monumentally huge 1 trillion is. Then come back and read Rep. Steny Hoyer’s reaction to a very simple question:

CNBC Analyst: Does the country have a spending problem sir? Does the country have a spending problem?

Hoyer: Does the country have a spending problem? The country has a paying for problem. We haven’t paid for what we bought, we haven’t paid for our tax cuts, we haven’t paid for war.

CNBC Analyst: How about what we promised? Are we promising too much?

Hoyer: Absolutely. If we don’t pay, we shouldn’t buy.

CNBC Analyst: So how is that different than a spending problem?

Hoyer: Well, we spent a lot of money when George Bush was president of the United States in the House and Senate were controlled by Republicans. We spent a lot of money. (CNBC, February 12, 2013)

Now, I’d like you to read an excerpt from The Declaration of Independence:

“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

I am a patient man. In fact, I am a very patient man. But, given that we have elected “leaders” who can look at the size of our current debt obligations and unfunded mandates promised to future generations — and still say with a straight face: “we have a paying-for problem,” my patience goes out the window. If I was at a town hall meeting and asked that very same question, and THAT was the answer I received, Mr. Hoyer’s personal security guards might very well have to rip me off the man and haul me to the slammer because I seriously would consider throttling his neck.

These comments come only a day after Nancy Pelosi said that saying the U.S. has a spending problem is a “false argument.”

Let us not get into the fact that a “cut” in Washington is in reality a decision to go deeper into debt at a slower rate than previously agreed upon. Let us not talk about the false logic that the government has to “pay” for tax cuts; it was never the government’s money to begin with. Let us instead focus on the fact that the U.S. is currently run by a bunch of narcissistic clowns who are stealing the wealth of future generations. They are lowering the standard of living for your kids and grandchildren. They are setting the stage for an epic financial meltdown — and they are supposed to be the guardians of future security.

They are not guardians; they are destroyers masquerading as guardians. The lexical b*****it they try to pass off on the American people is breathtaking. And the sad thing is, they’re getting away with it because the “guardians” of our education system and the watchmen in the Fourth Estate decided long ago that it was better to bed the destroyers than to stand up to them in battle.

As I said before: I am a patient man. I am not a violent man. But millions of Americans are not as patient and are not as slow to anger, and if the feelings that bubble up in me when I see Rep. Steny Hoyer make a mockery of the nation’s fiscal insanity are shared by even a small percentage of the population … then there are dark days ahead.

There is a limited amount of time left for elected officials to deal with tsunami of debt coming our way. Its amplitude blocks out the sun. Soon the amplitude on the interest alone will block out the sun. If they don’t get serious — soon — it will break not just on the coastal regions, but on the homes and heads of every single American. And no amount of word games will be able to fend off the riots that take place in its wake.

Pelosi seeks ‘windfall profits’ tax on Avengers ticket sales

If House Democrats have their way, your favorite Marvel superheroes will be hit with a "windfall profits" tax once an arbitrarily defined level of success has been met. Republicans argue that this will result in fewer superhero movies making it to the market.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is trying to find an 11th hour solution to Marvel Studios’ The Avengers, which is primed to be one of this summer’s biggest blockbusters. Sources close to producers Avi Arad and Jon Favreau have confirmed that the California Democrat has been in touch with Marvel Studios, and that a “windfall profits” tax will be in place before Friday, May 4 if Democrats can cobble together enough votes.

The Associated Press received the following from Pelosi’s office late Monday:

“Investments.” “Risk.” “Reward.” Such is the language of the Republican Party. Extremists. The GOP would have you believe that it was a “risk” to set up an Avengers movie with a series of films based on many of the individual characters: Thor, Hulk, Iron Man and Captain America. They would have you believe that an Avengers movie was no sure bet, and that the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on these movies and their marketing campaigns by no means guaranteed success. Rubbish! It’s high time Hollywood paid its fair share. If Democrats have their way, Marvel Studios will be the first to pay a windfall profits tax on its flagship characters, in addition to their corporate taxes (which also need higher rates). Warner Bros. will then follow suit in August, when The Dark Knight Rises takes number one at the box office. Behind every Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark movie are greedy Hollywood producers; that will change starting today.

The Hollywood Reporter seems to back up the Minority Leaders predictions, at least in this isolated case, although the philosophical debate is something that will have to be settled inside the Beltway on on cable news airwaves:

Avengers also is tracking better than Lionsgate’s blockbuster The Hunger Games, which posted a record March bow of $152.5 million to score the third-best opening of all time behind Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Dark Knight, respectively.

According to first tracking, unaided awareness in Avengers is 13 percent, compared with 10 percent for Dark Knight and 11 percent for Hunger Games; first choice is 23 percent, tying with Hunger Games and higher than the 19 percent for Dark Knight.

Total awareness is 85 percent, compared with 76 percent for Dark Knight and 74 percent for Hunger Games; definite interest is 61 percent, versus 62 percent for Dark Knight and 54 percent for Hunger Games.

Asked to comment, House Majority Leader John Boehner set up a stark (pardon the pun) contrast between Republicans and Democrats:

“The windfall profits tax proposed by Democrats will go nowhere because Americans want more Marvel movies, not less—and taxing Marvel Studios will result in less movies. Let me tell you what House Republicans will do to this bill in a way that Marvel fans—and fans of The Hulk—can all understand. BOEHNER SMASH!

California rolls out ‘slow cameras’ despite driver protests

Californians are livid over many of the new 'slow cameras' that will see the light of day before the year is up, thanks to new legislation by liberal members of its state legislature. Driver's will face up to a $100 fine for driving too slowly, although supporters contend that it's actually a deal, as fines for driving too quickly usually deliver citations above $250.

As the San Francisco Gate reported not long ago, Californians are no stranger to red light and speed cameras. In fact, the Golden State has the most expensive red light camera in existence, generating $3 million for the city of Oakland each year.

Now, in addition to speed camera’s, California’s liberal politicians recently gave the green light to “slow cameras,” which they claim will a.) make the roads safer and b.) raise much-needed cash for a number of municipalities. According to the laws, any driver snapped going too slow on a given road will be fined $100 dollars, although points will not be added to their license and the infractions will not affect their car insurance premiums. Critics complain that in the few areas that already have the devices that ‘slow traps’ have been created in such a way that nervous drivers have been tricked into setting off ‘speed traps’ placed suspiciously up the road—a clear indicator that it’s cash, and not safety, that was the inspiration for the bill.

State representatives were unwilling to talk, but House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-C.A.), said she would go on record:

California has always led the way. It’s been the vanguard of Progressive thought from its inception. Sure, most Americans associate California with perpetual debt, brown outs and earthquakes, but all of those can be traced back to Republicans—including the earthquakes; geologists speculate that the GOP’s environmental policies have adverse repercussions on dip-slip and strike-slip faults.

Just as Americans will one day see the unreliable nature of wind power as an asset, I believe even the reddest of red states will see the value of slow cameras along our nation’s roadways. Ultimately, we plan to have cameras that will ensure drivers keep their speed consistent with what regulators deem the most fuel-efficient for any given stretch of road, which would save money, the environment and lives.

Critics of California’s slow cameras note that it was just a year ago that ‘light camera’ legislation was narrowly defeated, a bill that would have ensured residents turned off lamps and televisions when they exited rooms within their home. Conservatives see such efforts as further attempts by central planners to control the daily activities of free people, a charge Democrats vehemently deny.

According to an unnamed sources involved with the unionized, slow-light contractors hired by the city, 400 cameras will be in place throughout the state by the end of 2012.

It’s Not Halftime in America, Clint. It’s time to pull the quitters from the game.

Clint Eastwood is now on record, denying there were political motives behind his “Halftime in America” Super Bowl ad for the U.S. auto industry. Regardless, the ad went viral, largely because the “two teams” metaphor is perfect for the upcoming election. Most commentators have largely focused on what the two teams have done domestically, but it’s the foreign policy parallels that are most striking. War is most certainly not a game, but sometimes the symbolism fits: when it was halftime in the Iraq War, Harry Reid literally forfeited the game.

It was just under five years ago that Senator Reid held a press conference to announce, “Now I believe, myself, that Secretary of State, the Secretary of defense – and you have to make your decision as to what the president knows – that this war is lost. And that the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday. ” When the Bush Administration was trying to regroup and find a way to secure victory, Senator Reid and the major players in the Democratic Party were throwing in the towel. If Eli Manning took career advice from Senator Reid, the Giants would have packed it in after their second regular season loss to the Washington Redskins!

The Democrat Party’s quarterback, Nancy Pelosi, is no different. In 2005 Pelosi held her own press conference and declared, “The war in Afghanistan is over.” Oddly enough, the very same Democratic Party now frames President Obama’s handling of both wars in terms of a “win” for the administration! Perhaps Tom Coughlin should have interrupted Madonna’s halftime show to announce that the Giants were boarding the plane early and heading back to New York.

As voters go to the booths in a matter of months, they should remember Clint Eastwood’s Super Bowl commercial. If the Iranian nuclear crisis were to explode – literally – within the next four years (or within the next few months, as Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has predicted), do we really want a team on the field that tries to quit with every shift of momentum? It isn’t halftime in America, Mr. Eastwood. It’s just time to put the quitters on the bench.

Billie Tucker Inspires. Charlie Crist Just Gristle.

Last weekend I was in Miami, and I got to hear from one of the Tea Party

Billie Tucker: Inspiration, Reagan style (with a "mad mamma" twist).

movement’s early organizers. And, contrary to what Nancy Pelosi and other members of Congress might think, she is not a party shill Big Whig who specializes in “Astroturfing.” Likewise, she is not the racist caricature Chris Matthews and liberal mouth pieces at the New York Times would have you believe.

In her own words—she’s a “mad mamma.” She’s a regular person who was busy raising a family, holding down a job, and dealing with all the other ups and downs life throws at us on a daily basis when the size, scope, and “audacity” of the federal government’s fiscal kamikazi missions and power-grab bombings on the American way of life became too much to take.

I listened to Billie Tucker speak and tears welled up in my eyes. With no teleprompter or formal speech training, a concerned mother’s passion and concern for her country touched a chord in ways that would make most professional orators speechless. The principles this country was founded upon are powerful indeed, and to see them bubble up and burst forth from an admitted “soccer mom” is inspirational in ways Arianna Huffington and Keith Olbermann and Joy Behar will never understand.

Are Tea Party members angry? Sure. But their anger is tied to a love for country, its Constitution, and a desire to return to the roadmap wonderfully written up for us by the Founding Fathers. During the Bush years, liberal anti-war protesters’ passions were fueled by a distain for a President who believed American Exceptionalism was real, and that our role on the world stage was to forcefully confront fear societies when the United Nations (composed largely of dictators, despots, police states, and the occasional country led by your friendly neighborhood mullah-nuts,) failed to live up to its obligations. Sort of like…what’s been going on in Iran for the better part of a decade!

Years ago I was in the military. I often thank God for that chapter in my life, because traveling around the world gave me an appreciation for each moment I’m alive, our liberties, and the happiness afforded to me by virtue of being born in the freest country in the history of world. Until I saw how other countries lived I had no real frame of reference to adequately compare and appreciate America’s contribution not just to its own people—but the world.

The United States has the unique status of being both a beacon and a barometer. It’s a beacon of light for anyone who believes a country guided by God-given liberties and an acceptance of knowable, objective truths can tap the human potential inside all of us and unleash innovation and prosperity unto the world.

It’s also a barometer used by the world’s worst, its rogues gallery of tyranny and terror and intimidation factories. An America that is unsure of herself or her unique contribution to the world encourages the worst in those who use oppression and fear to control citizens while enriching themselves. The Tea Party movement sees the toxic concoction of moral relativism, fiscal insanity, and a complete erasure of the long-established parameters set for the federal government.
Watch Billie speak. Then watch Charlie Crist’s attempt at inspiration. It won’t take you long to determine with whom you’re a kindred spirit. Then, make a pledge to yourself to become educated and engaged from now until November—and beyond.

Barack “Urkel” Obama: “Did I do that?”

Hotair’s Allahpundit makes a deft analogy for Congress and its new “I meant to do that” model of bill making, whereas all the unintended consequences that come as a result of this health care

Barack Urkel Obama: "Did I do that?" Note: This caption is racist to Janeane Garofalo. Apparently, because I wrote it.

mish-mash cluster fudge will be explained away in Harry Reid double-speak (e.g., the Cornhusker Kickback was a good thing for the American people). However, I can’t help but shake the feeling that someone’s been reading this blog…(March 27 to be exact.) Hmmm. Regardless, well played good sir, well played indeed.

With that said, I don’t think it matters how much Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi try and spin things, because in the end President Urkel will be left saying to the American people: Did I do that?”

I don’t have time to go through the whole laundry list of side effects this bill will burden generations with that have already been chronicled by The Heritage Foundation and other fine education and research institutions. It doesn’t take much more than a gut instinct on this one to realize we’re on a one-way ticket to hell and back (the “back” part only if you stay motivated through November). The point is: there will be more surprises. I was in a briefing today with a guy who can safely claim to know what he’s talking about when he’s talking health care reform, and I think it’s a good bet that already dismal polling for the administration is going to get worse. Much worse. In fact, if we’re going to stick with the Pee Wee’s Big Adventure analogies I’d say it’s going to get evil clown bad for the President. And it’s going to sound like a garbage truck falling off the Empire State building.

But for now, I interrupt this blog for a Public Service Announcement by Pee Wee Herman. One the President should have listened to in his youth. Think I’m lying? Think again. I wouldn’t make such a big deal out of it, but for years comedians (some of them very funny, like Chappelle) made Bush-druggie jokes:

“I’d never vote for George Bush Jr…The only thing I know about George Bush Jr. is that guy sniffed cocaine. We can not have that sh*t in the white house. That might be fine for a mayor…but not the White House. We can’t have no coke head President. He be selling nuclear secrets for twenty, thirty dollars. Come on, sign the treaty baby! I’ll suck your…”

But alas, I digress. Back to the topic at hand—the health care boondoggle. When liberals are so desperate and sloppy that they’ve started advertising their campaigns to say racist things and blame it on conservatives, you know they’re in trouble. This is very much a bill that can be rolled back—if we believe it! (Just listen to the rhythm of your heart) Or, if you’re a liberal like Bill Maher or Billie Joe Armstrong, lean back and have someone pass you the nearest gravity bong.

It's going to get "Evil Clown" bad for the Democrats, which under normal circumstances would really freak me out since I hate clowns. Thanks a lot, Harry Reid.

Pee Wee’s Big Adventure: Starring The Federal Government

Do you remember Tim Burton’s directorial debut, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure? If you do, I’m sure you remember Francis Buxton. And if you do you’ll know exactly where I’m coming from when I say the federal government is Francis Buxton.

 

Francis Buxton. Perhaps you know him by his other name: The Federal Government.

 

Francis Buxton was a big, fat, immature bully who used someone else’s money to buy things he couldn’t afford. And when he couldn’t buy what he wanted…he stole it. The federal government isn’t any different, using your hard-earned cash to buy all sorts of things it can’t afford (although I will admit that it tends to favor cars instead of bikes). And when it knows that you can’t be bought off? It does what it wants anyway.

Luckily, when the theft is egregious enough, there’s usually someone who storms the castle, crashes the pool, grabs the behemoth around the gut, and confronts the jerk. And that is exactly what the American people need to do right now, although, as the movie demonstrates, sometimes that isn’t enough to work. Perhaps Francis’ daddy (e.g., labor unions and other liberal lobbyists) shows up in the knick of time to prevent the fraud from being exposed. Perhaps any number of strange events occur that prevent justice from being done.

What then? Well, going intellectually old-school John Woo is necessary, but so is methodically laying out the evidence for the people (even if “Amazing Larry” doesn’t believe you).

If those things are done, and done well, conservatives will be okay. And when the public policy breakthrough finally comes we can ride off into the sunset like Satan’s Little Helpers on their choppers…until the next obstacle throws us over the handlebars.

Conservatives to go John Woo Hard Boiled on Bad Bill. Period.

What do you do when your liberal buddies pass a health care bill that the majority of Americans aren’t happy with? You take a few stories of rash actors doing unacceptable things, and insinuate an entire political party condones or encourages it.

The truth? Conservatives aren’t about to turn Capitol Hill into a remake of John Woo’s Hard Boiled (one of the greatest opening scenes in cinematic history). It they’re smart they’ll focus their anger in productive ways, take back Congress, and then get to work rolling back this boondoggle. Sure, it always makes the process easier when guys like Fidel Castro endorse the President and his plans, but they’ve been doing that since

Conservatives will go Hard Boiled on this bill...and liberalism, but that's it.

before the election. Although I find it odd that Americans often don’t wonder why the world’s worst dictators, despots, and thugs go retro-Backstreet “I Want it That Way” over Democrats and their public policy preferences (and I wish I had time to psychoanalyze the phenomenon) in this instance I think all money, time, and resources needs to be efficiently allocated to explain why this bill is an attack on the way America fundamentally operates.

As was mentioned in an earlier post, the Democrats have taken a cue, oddly, from the band Ok Go. Please, watch their new video, and you’ll understand the big picture. Liberals know that once you reach The Tipping Point it’s tough to claw your way back.

Don’t believe me that the left seeks to create a culture of perpetual dependency? In 2003, Years before ACORN was trying to find ways to help you out if you wanted to run a prostitution ring of underaged El Salvadorian tweens, City Journal was trying to tell us what was going on:

I reminded ACORN’s national executive director Steven Kest of the disasters of the welfare-rights movement of the 1960s, and initially he seemed to acknowledge the failure. “There’s an emerging consensus that for those who can work, it should be encouraged,” he conceded. But, but, but: but work “should come with adequate supports, such as day care and transportation, to get people out of poverty.” But: “We also still believe that, for a lot of people, it’s not right to force them to work. There should be some type of income support for those who still won’t be able to join the work force.” In other words: perpetual dependency.

Thank God for James O’Keefe’s efforts to expose these clowns, which ultimately shut them down (at least for now), but think about it: after decades of liberal public policy failures formed a track record one could see from the moon, ACORN was just coming to a consensus that people who can work, should work? Amazing.

Violence, anger, and screaming like a crazy person is not an option. But creating a Nightmare on Dingell’s Street is. Let’s do this, America.
