QND knew how old he was and what his stability record was and what his coaching record was and they needed him at this time to get a great program started. You guys sound like the fans in "Hoosiers" when they hired that 'old' coach. Go back and watch it again. Again, I say 'too bad he didn't help them'. QND did the right thing to hire him. He just had to put his family and…

Whenever they talk "carbon" restrictions, you know they're idiots blowing smoke. Carbon is the foundation of life. Carbon forms some ten million different compounds. OK, I admit, I'm a carbon chauvinist, I'm proud, get used to it. lol ""Life exists in the universe only because the carbon atom possesses certain exceptional properties." – James Jeans, The Mysterious Universe"

I believe I know as much as you don't know. What's next, is Obama going to out law water vapor which is the biggest source of a green house gas. We all have a lot to lose if this clown gets his way and you're foolish to think otherwise. If I don't know what I'm talking about, prove me wrong instead of shooting off your mouth.

Strawman: Puppies and Rainbows?

1 year, 2 months ago by Strawman

 

 

To those of you out there who think everything is puppies and rainbows here in America---look again.  Four more branches of the Obama administration were in the news again due to their wrongdoings. Some you may be aware of--- and some you may not. Those departments in the spotlight include: the EPA, the IRS, the Veteran’s Administration and the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

I offer a few thoughts on each:

PORN at the EPA:

According to this from the Huffington Post, the EPA has a “don’t-look- don’t-smell” policy in place when it comes to watching porn on the job. And we’re not talking about a few minutes of internet bumping and grinding, we’re talking full on “don’t bother me, I’m occupied right now, could you hand me a handi-wipe?” watching.  Yes, this is the same EPA who has been regulating everything from second hand smoke to the mud puddle in front of your aunt’s house.  But when it comes (whoops) to pressing the flesh on company time, well that seems to be another thing.  Heads up; the next time you meet someone from the EPA think twice before shaking hands—and don’t let them hook into your wifi.

Let’s Re-model the IRS:

It looks like when the IRS isn’t paying bonuses to underperforming IRS employees and targeting conservative nonprofit organizations, they’re redecorating their offices to the tune of almost 100 million taxpayer dollars.  This is the same IRS that asked for another 1.2 billion more to be added their 2015 budget. What’s the money for, new carpet? Is the IRS going to open an “I did nothing wrong, I plead the Fifth Amendment lounge” next to the water fountain?  And as far as re-doing someone’s office, I’m all for giving Lois Lerner a nice 10 by 10 workplace, with her own private poddy included—in the very near future.

The Veteran’s Administration—A Preview of Obamacare:

Eric Shinseki, Secretary of the Veterans Administration is under fire and why not?  Those working under the Obama appointed V.A. head man have been accused of causing the deaths of up to 40 veterans who went untreated or received treatment too late. Then, those V.A. employees attempted to cover up their incompetence—which only made matters worse. Heads up V.A., by now you should know that only those in the White House can tell bold face lies and get away with it.  You are just the lowly Veteran’s Administration.  Mr. Shinseki, Google Kathleen Sebelius if you’re wondering what’s in store for you down the road.  And one last thing: what’s happening right now with the V.A. is a preview of things to come under Obamacare.

What’s a Few Felon’s Among Friends?

So, what do you do with 36,000 illegal aliens awaiting trial?  Well, if you’re the Immigration and Customs Enforcement department (ICE) you cut them lose under their own recognizance!!  Murderers, rapists, drug dealers, pedophiles, gun runners—you’re innocent until proven guilty here in the United States of Obama!  What’s that?  You were convicted and were just awaiting deportation?  Oh, my bad.  That’s OK because you have Eric Holder and the Justice Department in your corner…so you probably weren’t REALLY GUILTY.  Just a case of mistaken identity, right?  What’s that?  You have no form of identification? Well of course not!!!  This is Obama’s America!!!  Get ready citizens; when Obama leaves office look for him to pardon THOUSANDS of bad guys, not the usual hundred or so most presidents grant clemency to as one of their last gestures from the Oval Office.

A Look Back to Last Week:

And this final nugget: after all the feel-good lefties took selfies of their sad faces, held up signs and hash tagged “Give Our Girls Back”, Mr. Obama and Mr. Kerry sent help to Nigeria last week---in the form of 14 advisors.  Add that to the 16 already in Nigeria and the USA has a total of 30 guys with clipboards and sensible shoes looking to get them some bad Muslim men.  Great job guys!!!  Still no girls, but those on the left feel SO MUCH better about themselves.  They're making a difference!!!

Point of reference; there were dozens of Feds and law enforcement types on hand during the showdown at the Cliven Bundy ranch a few weeks ago.  And those Feds were armed and ready to do battle over GRAZING RIGHTS!!!  Of course Bundy is a white guy, not a Muslim, not a pedophile, not a rapist…..

Drawing any conclusions America?
