National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU)
"I am very concerned about legislation that has been introduced by Congressman Dave Camp to push federal employees out of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and into the insurance exchanges established under the Affordable Care Act."
- A form letter provided by the union for IRS employees to mail to their congressmen, due to concerns they'll lose their current health care benefits and have to go onto the ObamaCare exchanges.
"The NTEU represents Internal Revenue Service employees who have the responsibility to enforce much of the health insurance law, especially in terms of collecting taxes and distributing subsidies that finance the whole system...IRS agents will also collect data and apply penalties for those who fail to comply with many of Obamacare's requirements." - Paul Kersey
This is so great. The IRS is charged with enforcing ObamaCare, but the ObamaCare exchanges aren't good enough for them...It would be hilarious if it wasn't so ridiculous; so hypocritical.
"If the Obamacare exchanges are good enough for the hardworking Americans and small businesses the law claims to help, they should be good enough for the president, vice president, Congress and federal employees." - Allie Walkersaid (spokesman for Congressman Camp)
The American people may be a pathetic flock of sheep, but they are also geese. Federal employees - IRS employees in particular - may be wolves, but they are also a bunch of ganders...As in 'what's good for the goose is good for the gander.'
"We're disappointed in the actions of the board. We don't believe it's in the best interest of the teachers of Lewis County. We think it's inconsistent with their statutory and constitutional rights. We're going to explore all of our legal actions."
Whoa! What happened to the teachers in Lewis Country, West Virginia? What in the world could the school board have done to these poor, poor teachers - "inconsistent with their statutory and constitutional rights?"
The school board passed a dress code banning teachers from wearing jeans and shorts while working.
"Inconsistent with their statutory and constitutional rights?" Surely you jest, Mr. Blaydes? You can't possibly be crying constitutional-foul because teachers have to look at least a little bit professional while supposedly educating children?
Just another of the many reasons why most Americans find unions (particularly government employee unions) to be disgraceful scum.
Just another something to keep in mind next time your local town cries about how they need to increase your taxes to keep these turds happy.
“Sending these embarrassing messages to women online, whom I never met, was a
personal failing that was hurtful to my wife and a part of my life that Huma and
I have put behind us.”
I last quoted Weiner back in December 2011, and sincerely thought it would be the last I'd hear of his sorry arse...I should have known better! Weiner is a Democrat, and like other 'rats', Democ'rats' don't just go away.
So, Weiner is running for Mayor of New York City - the most powerful city in the United States, maybe the world...When I heard he was running I figured he must have cleaned up his life and maybe even deserved a second chance (not really, but play along). We are all human and make mistakes, and Weiner must have gotten his stuff together.
No, no, no! Just like back in 2011 Anthony has been caught again with his Weiner in the cookie jar - posting pics of himself online...Under the name of 'Carlos Danger', at a site called thedirty.com.
Carlos Danger trolling and posting pics at thedirty.com...Nice job Weiner.
As shocked as I am to hear Weiner is back in the news caught with his 'Dangerous Carlos' in the cookie jar, I'm not shocked to hear he thinks Democ'rats' will continue supporting him.
“People who know me are still going to vote for me.”
I have no doubt they will, because he and they are Democ'rats'.
"Depending on the plan you choose in the Marketplace, you may be able to keep your current doctor."
- Answer to a current HHS webpage informing people about the upcoming ObamaCare rules...The question is:"Can I keep my own doctor?"
Lets go back in time a few years (yet still in our time today):"If you have insurance that you like, then you will be able to keep that insurance. If you've got a doctor that you like, you will be able to keep your doctor."- President Obama (before, during and after the legislative process)
Did you notice the 'slight' difference in the HHS answer to the question and Obama's promise?
Obama (then): "...you will be able to keep your doctor." HHS (now):"...youmay be able to keep your current doctor." One small word of difference; a world of a difference in reality...Such is the genius of Liberal propaganda.
I hate to say it, but if you ever believed the propaganda on this matter (then or now) you truly are a 'useful idiot.'
"It's time for our culture to wake up and smell the pheromones: monogamy is not natural for many, or probably most humans. With people living longer than ever before, a greater tolerance toward the human impulse to experience sexual variety is needed."
In other words: Bang away! Sniff some arse and take it...No need to bother with commitment and relationships.
I'm sure this idea would work out great "for our culture." Almost as well as things have turned out since the 1960's 'sexual revolution.'
Which would probably take us back in time - not to the 60's again, but to pre-historical times when humans were much more like wild beasts than modern humans.
Dear Leader (Harry) Reid and Leader (Nancy) Pelosi: When you and the President sought our support for the Affordable Care Act
(ObamaCare), you pledged that if we liked the health plans we have now, we could keep
them. Sadly, that promise is under threat. Right now, unless you and the Obama
Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our
hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week
that is the backbone of the American middle class. Like millions of other Americans, our members are front-line workers in the
American economy. We have been strong supporters of the notion that all
Americans should have access to quality, affordable health care. We have also
been strong supporters of you. In campaign after campaign we have put boots on
the ground, gone door-to-door to get out the vote, run phone banks and raised
money to secure this vision. Now this vision has come back to haunt us.
- Part of a letter from Jimmy Hoffa (Teamsters), Joseph Hanson (UFCW), D. Taylor (UNITE-HERE) complaining about the effects of ObamaCare on average American workers.
What a joke for these union turds to pretend they are upset about this matter. They knew when the bill was written what it would do to their members...And they knew how little it would affect them and their power base. But now they are playing the role of defending their members.
What a pathetic sham.
Sadly, these union bosses aren't the problem - they are just another part of the political shell game. The problem is the union members who continue to prop these bosses up at the expense of the American economy as a whole...Vladimir Lenin had a perfect phrase for these saps:"useful idiots."
"I don't know. I'd have to look at it closely...I just haven't read it that closely to know."
- Answer to a question: Would the Senate immigration bill give employers a financial incentive to hire new immigrants instead of U.S. citizens?
He "don't know"? He hasn't "read it that closely to know"?
Well then, he couldn't have voted for the bill, right?
Sen. Casey happily voted for the Senate immigration bill...A bill which will most definitely give employers an incentive to not hire U.S. citizens. A fact he may have known had he bothered to read the bill "closely." Or read it at all.
This is what happens when Congress practices governance under the Nancy Pelosi model:"We have to pass the bill to find out what's in it."
And just like with ObamaCare, the American people are in for a sequence of poison pills if the Senate immigration bill - or anything even close to it - makes it out of the House...This is what we get for continuing to vote for these turds, however.
"It's been 86 days since the Senate passed a budget. Republicans, stop obstructing us from proceeding to conference."
- It's closer to 100 days now.
How rich. Harry and the Democrat Party have led the Senate for the entirety of the Obama Years, and he went over four years (well over 1000 days) without bothering to pass a budget...But now he's worried about a hundred days? Who is he kidding?
The Democrats would rather never have a legitimate budget, preferring to forever spend money we don't have on the current Zombie Budget - going forward, listlessly, with no aim, rules or endpoint.
Here's an idea for the Leader: The House would love to forward a legitimate budget to the Senate for Harry to pass. Any chance this would happen? NOPE.
And how do I know it wouldn't happen? Because this is exactly what the House has done since the Republicans took it over in 2010; they've passed a budget and it has died in the Senate...Not that Obama would have signed a real budget - or bothered to uphold it if one was passed.
Same ol', same ol'. As it will continue to be until the Democrats lose the Senate...And until we get a President who cares about budgets, as well.

THIS DAY IN HISTORY
1994 - Physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermin National Accelerator Laboratory discovered the subatomic particle called the top quark.
It’s a slow day, so why not.
