***NYPD promises to be very aggressive tonight to keep the peace in Times Square. I hope they arrest anyone who looks at them crosseyed. We have to stop coddling these thugs and throw their sorry butts in jail, no matter what color they are.
***Gruber admits Obamacare might not be affordable. Well duh. It was never meant to be. In other news, no one will cover this but Fox News.
Gruber said that ObamaCare had no cost controls in it and might not be affordable in an October 2009 policy brief, presented here exclusively by TheDC. At the time, Gruber had already personally counseled Obama in the Oval Office and served on Obama’s presidential transition team. Obama, meanwhile, told the American people that their premiums would go down dramatically.
“The problem is it starts to go hand in hand with the mandate; you can’t mandate insurance that’s not affordable. This is going to be a major issue,” Gruber admitted in an October 2, 2009 lecture, the transcript of which made up the policy brief.
Gosh, you'd think this at least would merit a passing mention on the major networks, wouldn't you? Don't hold your breath.
***A Supreme Hypocrite: Rahm Emmanual, Mr. Anti-Gun himself, has a sign in his yard warning burglars that he has armed Secret Service protecting his home. Where to begin...?

***This is so true...
Daddy Fell Into the Pond
Everyone grumbled. The sky was grey.
We had nothing to do and nothing to say.
We were nearing the end of a dismal day,
And then there seemed to be nothing beyond,
Daddy fell into the pond!
And everyone's face grew merry and bright,
And Timothy danced for sheer delight.
"Give me the camera, quick, oh quick!
He's crawling out of the duckweed!" Click!
Then the gardener suddenly slapped his knee,
And doubled up, shaking silently,
And the ducks all quacked as if they were daft,
And it sounded as if the old drake laughed.
Oh, there wasn't a thing that didn't respond
Daddy Fell into the pond!
***I've always heard stress releases cortisol, which translates to more visceral belly fat, but I didn't know that combined with caffeine it has a 25% greater effect. Hmmm...I've been mixing stress and caffeine for a long time. Maybe I had better rethink that.
***Next time some goofy liberal tries to tell you that previous presidents issued more executive orders than Obama, throw this in his face.
***I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship. ~~ Louisa May Alcott
