Union: Obamacare will slash wages by up to $5 an hour | WashingtonExaminer.com

March 9th, 2014

So a union is saying Obamacare will slash wages by up to $5 an hour. I guess this explains the desperate push for a minimum wage increase – someone has to pay for the ACA.

You’d think something like this would ruin the President’s credibility on income inequality but he’s apparently the gold child even when his popularity is as bad as W’s was and it didn’t take him as long or as much media shenanigans to get him there.

Harvey Weinstein to make movie attacking NRA

January 16th, 2014

MILLER: Harvey Weinstein and Meryl Streep making movie attacking NRA.

“I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it,” the producer said. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.”

“I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take this head-on. And they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.”

He foresees moviegoers to leave thinking, “Gun stocks — I don’t want to be involved in that stuff. It’s going to be like crash and burn.”

Incandescent bulb ban

January 13th, 2014

It seems the incandescent bulb ban has left more than myself looking for a solution where the bulbs are being used specifically for their “waste” heat.

Without a 100W incandescent bulb in the right place my home’s water pipes would likely have been ruined by the -17F temperatures last week. And even with the bulb (burned up 2 bulbs during that week) I had one section of line freeze resulting in a rupture and emergency repair when it thawed. Fortunately, I have everything hand else we’d been 2 days without water and unable to get anywhere.

Champions of Liberty

January 7th, 2014

“I am commonly opposed to those who modestly assume the rank of champions of liberty, and make a very patriotic noise about the people. It is the stale artifice which has duped the world a thousand times, and yet, though detected, it is still successful.”

Team Obama Changes Course, Appears to Accept China Zone

December 4th, 2013

We’ve screwed the rest of our allies siding with those formerly our opponents so I don’t see why Japan shouldn’t be next.

And with our defense forces at such a low when the wars break out in the middle east (where we’re screwing Israel with our dealings with Iran and Egypt) and then between China and Japan best we’re going to accomplish is watching from the cheap seats.

Hm, I wonder if I have Orville Redenbacher stock in my 401k… not that it matters I’m sure they won’t let us keep those much longer either.
