Real reason why President has been rejecting GOP funding bills

From :

Here’s Knoller’s full question: “While you’re waiting for the shutdown to end, why is it that you can’t go along with any of the bills the House is passing? Funding the FDA and FEMA — where you were yesterday — and veterans benefits and Head Start. You have to be tempted to kind of get funding to those programs you support.”

Obama admitted that he is “tempted” to support the bills, because “you’d like to think you could solve at least some of the problems if you couldn’t solve all of it.” That’s what Republicans claim they are trying to do with the appropriations bills to restore funding to various affected programs.

“But here’s the problem. What you’ve seen are bills that come up wherever Republicans are feeling political pressure, they put a bill forward. And if there’s no political heat, if there’s no television story on it, then nothing happens,” Obama said .”If we do some sort of shotgun approach like that, then you’ll have some programs that are highly visible get funded and re-opened, like national monuments, but things that don’t get a lot of attention, like those SBA loans not being funded.”

Swiss look to go all in on socialism, guaranteed income for everyone

But who pays that bill?  Sure, the government woudl be signing the checks, but where does the government get the money?

Do they ?  No, because it wouldn't be long before the money in circulation would be so devalued that it would be worthless.

Do they collect it from those who can afford to "donate" some of their income?  How long until those who work hard for their money don't bother any more because there is no longer an incentive to do so?  It would be like winning the lottery.  Would you continue to work if you had an unconditional paycheck every month for doing nothing?

Harry Reid: Why would we save children with cancer when federal employees are hurting?

Harry Reid has his priorities, and children with cancer aren't near the top of the list.  It's just not fair that programs should be prioritized and funded accordingly.  How it comes out of his mouth, it's all or nothing, even if kids go untreated as a result.  :

was one of those moments when even the Left’s most enthusiastic spin-meisters and dedicated followers stop cold, with a mass of ice forming in the pit of their stomachs, and realize one of their icons has really screwed up, beyond their ability to conceal the truth.  On the same day Barack Obama lost his ill-advised battle against World War II vets, we got another of those moments – and a reminder of why the media normally goes to great lengths to conceal the existence of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).

Right-wing ObamaCare myths debunked

Written by .  Too funny not to share.

Man, I hate these stupid, crazy, tea bagging right wingers. So foolish, so uncivilized. They run around screaming like crazed anarchists about how they want to stop Obamacare. Damned idiots don’t realize that the government needs to be involved in our health care decisions; we’re too helpless and feeble to handle it ourselves — unless we’re making the “medical” choice to get an abortion, in which case, THIS IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS, YOU GOVERNMENT PIGS. GET OUT! I mean, leave your wallet on the table, ’cause I’m gonna need you to pay for this, but then GET OUT, JERK.

There are many scare tactics being used by the tea baggers in an effort to discredit Obamacare. Personally, I hate scare tactics. You should never let anyone scare you away from supporting socialized medicine, mostly because without it every poor person in the country will get sick and die. Anyway, like I said, I disapprove of scare tactics.

Et tu, Starbucks?

Starbucks CEO caved on their 2nd Amendment stance.  Boooo.  At :

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has gone from a 2nd amendment hero to a zero faster than you can say "triple shot espresso."

A couple of years ago, he earned a lot of fans by telling folks that the 11,000 Starbucks would welcome concealed carry permit holders who follow the law.  Some gun aficionados decided to show their appreciation by creating and carrying their guns openly in the coffee shops, where it's legal.  Anti gun forces pitched a fit.

But, now, Schultz has put out an any customers in its stores carrying a gun...open carry or concealed.  That's foolish.  A majority of Americans support the individual right to own and carry a gun and all fifty states have made it legal.

Starbucks says seeing a pistol upsets its anti-gun customers.

So what? Some bigots in America don't like seeing blacks, Muslims and Jews.  Is Starbucks going to ban Yarmulkes and Hajibs and dark skin next?
