Consider the fact that Obamacare is now simply untethered from law or policy. This week the administration announced that you can get a hardship waiver from Obamacare if your hardship is . .
I'm sure that damn_registrars understands all of this substitution of mood for law is a necessary step so that one day soon BHO can call a press conference and announce: "I have a Single Prayer dream" in his best MLK voice.
We'll get there, d_r. Let us know if you need a diaper re-supply.
So the Tea Partiers are sold out. This will be a hard lesson. Welcome to the natural political cycle. My real point is not that there is anybody virtuous enough to hold office (there is not) but that we need to liquidate incumbents as often as possible, and then cram a term limit amendment up their backsides.
Hell is stocked with professional politicians.
I mean, if this disaster isn't controlled, we could be forced to opt for limited government, and be faced with people maturing into self-governing citizens. Isn't that like anarchy or something?
A legislative push to permit California's public universities to once again consider race and ethnicity in admissions appears to be on life support after an intense backlash from Asian-American parents who fear it will make it harder for their children to get into good schools.
CA is just gonna have to go with damn_registrars and bring in MOAR REGULATION.
Remember kids: regulation is the new sex.
Could Emanuel be the one to take up BHO's wrecking ball?
On another occasion I asked your deputy why you didnâ(TM)t conduct an evaluation by the Op-Divs of the immediate office administrative services to try to improve them. She responded that that had been tried a few years ago and the results were so negative that no further evaluations have been conducted.
Q: What is the difference between a zombie, a garden gnome, and a specimen of homo bureaucratus?
A: The gnome makes the best travel commercials, and the other two are fungible.
A new report by House Republicans concludes that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner engaged in wide-ranging, politically motivated efforts to hamper conservativesâ(TM) use of tax-exempt organizations.
On the one hand, there are the slack-jawed sycophants who claim that the IRS was "just workin' hard, tryin' to do a job".
Then there are those (me among them) who'd say that anything short of utter dissolution of the IRS and replacement with a simple, effective reform tax code would simply count as collaboration.
Poor GOP, actually facing the prospect of power with an expectation that they actually improve matters.
"You know, this is the ultimate nanny-state patronizing," Krauthammer said. "The president steps into your life and says you should be spending on x and not on y. It is bad enough that the government is taking a lot of your hard-earned money in taxes. It is bad enough that you're over-regulated in just about every aspect of life. Bad enough the government wants to control so many aspects of the economy and of the culture. But here he is stepping into your living room and kitchen table and saying you're overspending here and there. And this is why I say it is the embodiment of this hyper-liberalism. It's the perfect example. It's as if the Republicans couldn't have invented something more demonstrative of what this kind of nanny-state liberalism is about and it's precisely how the president is telling you to spend your money after taxes."
After Jolly beat Sink in FL-13, the quest for a bigger lie than ObamaCare is going to be a tough one even for champion purveyors of falsehood.
The more interesting point, though, is that the GOP is going to be faced with a mandate to do something for which it really hasn't shown much stomach: delivering on its platform.
How do you encourage [citizen engagement] while simultaneously taking away the ability for citizens to vote for representation in the senate?
is rooted in a non-grasp of what the Founders were out to achieve. See http://www.amazon.com/Americas-Constitution-Akhil-Reed-Amar-ebook/dp/B000SEPKIU/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1393979724&sr=1-1&keywords=akhil+reed+amar for some desperately needed understanding.
The Senate is to be a set of ambassadors from States, to DC. Much of our collapse is due to the States being diminished as political objects. The House, inevitably, is going to want to borrow and spend endlessly; the Senate is supposed to be the adults in the room. OOPS! The Senate's not going to pass a budget. Why? It's an election year! They'd rather protect their careers than do anything statesmanlike. Do. You. Fail. To. See. The. Problem, damn_registrars, you ignorant SNL reference?
By your degenerate, MOAR VOTES==BETTA logic, we should have the Supreme Court run for election, as well.
Since the Kochs are the bad guys, I'm sure my stable of trusty analysts can help me see where these free market principles are insincerely or incorrectly spouted:
"I think one of the biggest problems we have in the country is this rampant cronyism where all these large companies are into smash-and-grab, short-term profits, and that's true even at the local level," Koch explained.
Companies have created an environment in which entering an industry comes at a serious cost that off-sets innovation and economic development. Cab drivers can pay anywhere from $100,000 or $300,000 to get a medallion to drive a taxi, while hairdressers must pay for a two-year education for a license to style hair.
Koch freely admits the subsidies in place are ideal for large companies like his because they make more money through a marketplace that is difficult to enter.
Read the whole thing.
Suitable for when you see
Someone cover himself in turd
And trundle on all merrily
At first you think him unaware
He's covered himself in filth
You try hygienic ideas to share
But it starts to look like stealth
For his crap-splattered ideas go
From this sewer to that
With only moral inversion to show
Under his fecal hat
And then you wonder if at last
This scatalogical glee
Is only someone having a cowpie blast
As the service is so free
It thus seems best to point & laugh
At this moronic git
His Biden-esque mind is born to gaff
And that's just how the bulls hit.
