Underinformed

***That is such a perfect term for many current Democrats (okay, some Republicans too, but I'm speaking specifically about the ones who voted for Obama). I see otherwise intelligent people post the most asinine stuff on Facebook - I have had to stop some of them from coming into my news feed. One recently was touting the wonderful "facts" about Obamacare, from a web site devoted completely to making people believe it's the greatest thing ever. I went to the site and it was the same old song & dance. It's going to lower costs, it's going to make insurance companies cover everybody, it's going to lower the deficit, blah blah blah. No mention of HOW. Just platitudes for those who want desperately to believe it. There is no excuse for that kind of ignorance. The truth is out there for anyone who wants to look for it. Trouble is, they don't want the truth. They want to feel good about their choice for president, even though I think many of them know in the back of their minds that our president is a bad man with bad policies. I'm still amazed that a man with such a poor record was re-elected. He has done absolutely nothing positive for America, yet he has legions of followers. I really don't get it.

***Bias alert at MSNBC. Oh, there's a surprise.


***Sandy more costly than Katrina.

Remember the coverage during Katrina? The vicious media attacks on Bush, the LIES about rape, etc. in the Dome? Don't see anything like that now, do you? Where are the attacks on Obama and his miserable leadership? Rhetorical, of course.

***It doesn't pay to work - this is EXACTLY what the Democrats and Obama want. Government dependency = power for the Left. They don't care about the 90+% of black people who voted for them. They want them to stay down. It's really too bad they can't figure that out.

[I]t is now more lucrative – in the form of actual disposable income – to sit, do nothing, and collect various welfare entitlements, than to work. This is graphically, and very painfully confirmed, in the below chart from Gary Alexander, Secretary of Public Welfare, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (a state best known for its broke capital Harrisburg). As quantitied, and explained by Alexander, “the single mom is better off earning gross income of $29,000 with $57,327 in net income & benefits than to earn gross income of $69,000 with net income and benefits of $57,045.

This is not sustainable. They don't care about that, either.

***How would you like your daughter to bring THIS home?



Or this?



***Liberty challenge could doom Obamacare? Hopin' and prayin'...

***"Dancing with the Stars" crowns winner. My mom watches that show. I watched it with her once. Gotta tell ya, I don't see what's so interesting, but it seems to be pretty popular.

Bugs Bunny was shopping at the supermarket and a sales assistant said to him: “If you can tell me what 19,866 times 10,543 is, we’ll give you free carrots for life.”
Immediately, Bugs responded: “209,447,238”. 

The sales assistant was astonished and asked: “How on earth did you do that?”
Bugs replied: “If there’s one thing rabbits are good at, it’s multiplying."

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.
“How much is an ice cream sundae?”
“50 cents,” replied the waitress.
The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a number of coins in it.
“How much is a dish of plain ice cream?” he inquired. Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient.
“35 cents,” she said brusquely.
The little boy again counted the coins. “I’ll have the plain ice cream,” he said.
The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and departed.
When the waitress came back, she began wiping down the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw.
There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents – her tip.

Seriously?
