11 Nasty Trends That Will Test America's Resilience

Via Ninety Miles From Tyranny


The resilience that has long been one of America's remarkable traits was on display in 2013. Not only did businesses create 2 million jobs, but the struggling economy actually grew and profits and stock prices soared to near-record levels.

Still, five years into the Obama presidency, the economy is grossly underperforming. Contrary to the dominant media narrative, it's not bad luck or the financial crisis to blame, but bad policies — from the $860 billion "stimulus" that didn't stimulate to the Dodd-Frank financial reform that killed lending.

Last year was a challenging one for entrepreneurs and other productive Americans. No fewer than 13 new taxes were put into place. Big government now consumes one of every four dollars of our GDP and is getting bigger.

Entering 2014, we face problems, including taxes and spending, that neither the White House nor Congress is addressing. In the following charts, we look at a few of the more alarming and intractable ones.

Muslim Mortgages Paid with More than $300 Million – Courtesy of US Taxpayers


The last information I had, there are 46 million homeless Americans and more children now than ever are homeless and living in poverty. The government is not blind to this fact. More than likely, they contributed to these numbers. Military retirees were told to “embrace the suck” when their retirement was cut in the budget deal. Nancy Pelosi claimed so many cuts had been made that the “cupboard is bare.” This signals there is no more frivolous money that can be cut. Well that was proven less than accurate. So, where did the more than $300 million dollars in taxpayer money come from to send to Muslims to help pay their mortgages?

GOP to Push Bill to Protect Health Records from Obamacare

 Image: Cantor: GOP to Push Bill to Protect Health Records from Obamacare

Congress returns to work Monday with election-year politics certain to shape an already limited agenda.

Republicans intend to focus on every facet of President Barack Obama's health care law. They see a political boost in its problem-plagued rollout as the GOP looks to maintain its House majority and seize control of the Democratic-led Senate.

First up in the House, according to Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., is legislation addressing the security of personal data, part of his party's effort "to protect the American people from the harmful effects of Obamacare."

“If a breach occurs, it shouldn’t be up to some bureaucrat to decide when or even whether to inform an individual that their personal information has been accessed,” Cantor wrote in a memo to House Republicans, promising other steps to curb the healthcare law.

Making America Safe From Itself



Now that the green Nazis have at last implemented their ban on the evil incandescent  light bulb and that the EPA has shown its willingness to SWAT teams to enforce its absurd and draconian regulations we should all brace ourselves for a new enforcement arm of the EPA.

The protocols for disposing of burned out or broken compact florescent bulbs is but another example of government solutions being worse than the alleged problem.  Anybody who thinks that people are going to follow all these protocols are idiots. People  are basically lazy and more than willing to follow the path of least resistance, so they are going to toss them in the trash just like with any other broken or useless item.

This will lead to some EPA cubicle fascist to devise a response to this new "environmental crisis" which will be to establish a new light bulb disposal police force.  The Broken Compact Florescent Bulb Disposal Administration (BCFBDA) will be a special adjunct to the TSA in cooperation with the EPA, with special electric green uniforms with jackbooted Redi-Kilowatt patches on the shoulders and on their nifty officer style caps.

Man Driving Home From Florida Vacation Chased Down and Shot Dead in ‘Road Rage’ Attack

Via Doug

A 28 year old Maine man is dead today as the result of an apparent road rage attack in the state of Pennsylvania. Timothy Davison was driving home from a Florida vacation when he called 911 while driving on interstate 81 near Maryland, to report that someone in a pickup truck was firing at him. Moments later, Davison’s vehicle was forced into the median rendering it disabled, it was then that his assailant approached and fired several rounds at him, resulting in his death.

State police are searching for a Ford Ranger-style pickup. They say the vehicle may be blue and may have damage to the driver’s side.

Record 87 Surgical Abortion Clinics Close in 2013 - Total Drops 73% from 1991 High

A record 87 surgical abortion clinics closed in 2013, a new study finds.

The total number of surgical abortion clinics in U.S. fell 12% to 582 in 2013 - a 73% decline from a high of 2,176 in 1991.

Texas led all states with 11 closures in 2013, most of which shut down after Texas passed an abortion law earlier this year that required abortionists to maintain local hospital privileges. New clinic safety rules in Pennsylvania and Maryland also prompted closures in those states.

"The numbers don't lie. A 73% drop in surgical abortion clinics is a significant loss. We are witnessing the death throes of the abortion cartel," said Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue, which conducted the study.

Washington: The Illusion of Government

In a paroxysm of patriotic musing, I reflected that Washington is an insular, incestuous, inward-looking city, chiefly interested in itself, so politically inbred as to be in danger of hemophilia, out of touch with reality, having remarkably little understanding of or interest in the rest of the country or the world. Isnl’t this wonderful?

Inbreeding? By comparison with the Yankee Capital, West Virginians are on the outer limits of hybrid vigor.  We had Bush I, a mediocrity but no worse, and later Bush II, in whom mediocrity would have been a welcome astonishment. We had Clinton the First, Bill, who was at least intelligent, then almost had Clinton II, who instead became Secretary of State, for which her only qualification was having been First Basilisk. Hillary lost the presidency to Barack Obama, whose only qualification was being black and reading a teleprompter well. Next we are likely to get Hillary anyway, and before that we almost had Kerry, whose only qualification was having married a pickle heiress. He is now Secretary of State, for no discernible reason.

Special Forces Operative Reveals The Osama Bin Laden Raid Was A Lie

 Writing letters to home

This presidency can surely be said to be the most shrouded in secrecy of all times.  From birth certificate conspiracies to everything else this man has had the indecency to lie about in order to ensure political prevalence, Obama can surely be labeled a sociopath.  A letter has come forward stating that although you may believe it, things he can only express through words have proven to him that Obama did not in fact kill Osama during that raid.

Britain's version of Tea Party rocks political system across the pond

Via avordvet

The often stale British political system is being rocked by its very own Tea Party.

The UK Independence Party (UKIP), formed in 1993 opposing Britain’s entry into the European Union, failed to make an electoral dent for a long time. However UKIP has built up steam in recent years and is spearheading a seismic shift in the British political spectrum.

In this year’s local elections – the British version of midterms -- UKIP took a stunning 23 percent of the vote, up from the 3.1 percent they won in the 2010 national election. Their leader, Nigel Farage, is buoyed by their recent success.

“We want to take back our country, we want to take back our government, and we want to take back our birthright,” Farage told in forthright language rarely seen in British politics.

The Heart Of Dixie

My first car was a '59 Galaxie two-door. My father was purchasing a '63 Galaxie so I traded a piano, that I had inherited from my aunt, to my mother for my father's old car. My mother gave the piano to Emmanuel Episcopal Church which placed it in their parish hall which later burned down and the only item that wasn't damaged was the piano! 

This Parish has suffered heavily during the war. Farms have been laid waste, barns burned, dwellings pillaged, and more, many valuable lives lost. Among the departed it is proper to mention Col. Jon. A. Washington and Col. Thos. Marshall, both vestrymen of the parish, both gallant men and sincere Christians, slain in battle.

"The members of the parish are much reduced in means: and the Church buildings were much injured by the Union troops. All three Churches were sadly defaced and two of them now stand mere naked walls roofed over. But the prospect of the parish is encouraging and we hope soon to have all three buildings in good order."

Severe Doctor Shortage Looms Under Obamacare


Millions more Americans are expected to seek medical treatment under Obamacare, but many are likely to have difficulty finding easy access to a doctor.
As it stands now, 20 percent of Americans live in areas with an insufficient number of primary care physicians, and 30 percent live in areas that are short of mental health providers.

In two states, Louisiana and Mississippi, more than half the population lives in an area with too few healthcare providers to serve people's medical needs, according to Stateline, a publication of the Pew Charitable Trusts.

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) predicts that there could be a shortage of 45,000 primary care doctors in the United States by 2020, and a shortfall of 46,000 specialists.

To make matters worse, many primary care doctors do not accept Medicaid patients due to low reimbursement rates, and many of those who are newly insured under Obamacare will be covered through Medicaid.

Christine Mitchell, director of federal affairs for AAMC, said many of the estimated 36 million people expected to gain coverage under Obamacare will endure long waits to see a doctor in their community or need to travel far from home for medical care elsewhere.

Stateline cited several factors contributing to the looming doctor shortage. Due to the aging of the boomer generation, the number of Americans over 65 will grow by about 36 percent in the next 10 years. But the federal government estimates that the number of doctors will rise by just 7 percent.

Many doctors in the boomer generation will retire. And fewer medical students are opting for primary care in favor of specialties.

"A steady stream of negative attention has made medicine in general a far less attractive career choice than it once was," Stateline noted. "Insurance headaches, pricey technologies, long hours and the risk of liability have convinced many talented students to eschew medicine as a career choice."

A shortage of dentists is likely in the coming years as well. Obamacare has made pediatric dental care coverage a requirement for all insurance, which will be provided to as many as 8.7 million children by 2018, far outstripping America's capacity for producing new dentists.

Allowing mid-level medical providers, including physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and dental aides, to perform some of the work usually reserved for doctors and dentists could improve healthcare access in the long run.

But Linda Rosenberg, president of the National Council for Behavioral Health, said, "In the meantime, people are going to suffer."
