Big Win

***So glad Benjamin Netanyahu was victorious in Israel yesterday. I'm sure Obama is disappointed.  Want to see how unpresidential and petty our president is?

Spring may be days away but don't count on a thaw in the chilly relationship between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu  and the White House -- which, even after election results showed Netanyahu's party scoring a major victory, congratulated the Israeli people but ignored the winning candidate.
Our strongest Middle East ally, and this despicable administration not only pointedly fails to congratulate Netanyahu, but also actively participated in trying to secure his defeat. Shameful, but predictable behavior from this president.

***Have you heard about Medi-Share? It's a Christian alternative to Obamacare, and more and more people are turning to it in light of Obamacare's disastrous failure. 

Faced with the rising cost of insuring their family of five, Lisa and Jonathan Adams canceled their high-deductible health insurance policy and put their faith in Medi-Share, a Christian organization whose members help pay one another's major medical expenses.
Five days later, their 7-year-old daughter fell out of a bunk bed and broke her arm. Medi-Share covered nearly the entire cost of her surgery and rehab therapy and provided something the Adamses had never received from an insurance company -- prayer.
"When I called to let them know that Jordan had broken her arm, the last thing they said was, 'Can we pray for you right now and pray for your family?'" Jonathan Adams recalled. "And they did, right there on the phone."

I have excellent insurance, I kept the coverage I had at the Post Office. However, I'm going to look into Medi-Share because I want to be a part of this - you know, before Obama finds a way to shut it down.

***Here's where part of your Obamacare taxes are going:

Massachusetts Health Connector officials behind the state’s failed health care website have racked up more than $170,000 in taxpayer-funded expenses, including a Boston Harbor summertime boat cruise, luxury hotel stays, “appreciation” meals for staffers and contractors — and a $285 Obamacare cake commemorating the launch of the Affordable Care Act, a Herald review has found.

Geez. As one of Glenn Reynolds' readers says, Let them eat Obamacake!

went that way

***THIS is what we sent them there for: GOP budget repeals Obamacare, cuts $5.5 trillion. It balances the budget in less than 10 years.

House Republicans unveiled a 2016 budget Tuesday that would cut $5.5 trillion from spending over the next 10 years, repeal Obamacare and change Medicare into a voucherlike system — key parts of a fiscally punishing blueprint designed to end red ink in less than a decade.

 Now stick to your guns, guys.

***From the Founding Fathers blog:

The resolution that the American colonies should break from Great Britain and become free and independent states was proposed by Richard Henry Lee, of Virginia, in the Continental Congress, and was unanimously adopted by Congress on July 2, 1776.
The adoption of this resolution on that date caused John Adams to write home to Abigail. He thought that date, July 2, would become the great day of American celebration for independence. He wrote to her:

“Yesterday the greatest Question was decided, which ever was debated the America, and a  greater, perhaps, never was nor will be decided among Men . . . .The Second Day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha [sic], in the history of America.– I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews [sic], Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires, and Illuminations from one End of the Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”  (His capitalization retained.)

Easy come, easy go.

Whether we win $500 million or $1 million, about 70 percent of us lose or spend all our money in five years or less.

You will be exploited—possibly by your friends.

I had one friend who told me this sob story about how behind she was on her local taxes, how they were going to take her house because she couldn’t pay. After she left, I got on my computer, looked up her tax records, and saw that she wasn’t behind. When I printed out that page and sent it to her, well, that was the end of our friendship.

We answer for our impulse purchases.

After we won the lottery, we bought an eight-bedroom, seven-bath, 10,000-square-foot mansion because we could, and it sounded amazing. Well, now we’re selling the eight-bedroom, seven-bath 
mansion because it’s impractical for a family of four.

***Have a great day!
