And still, liberals think EVERY dollar in government is absolutely necessary and actually more is required. If we do nothing to cut, we go off the cliff. Period, end of story. The only question is when, not if. And because there is no hard and fast deadline for all to see, it's disregarded.
Kinda like retirement savings when you're 20 years old. Retirement isn't something you can get your arms around, so you spend everything and save nothing toward it, and for many, that trend continues for decades until the age comes and then it's "uuuuuhhh, woops, I should have saved more, now I'm screwed, gimmie gimmie, massa gubmint. Don't take my check, I'll vote against you if you even mention my check!!!!"................just as the Left likes it.

If 71% of the top companies stopped providing employee health care and pay the associated fines, the estimated savings is just under $29 billion.
In essence, it would be cheaper to pay the fines and allow employees to buy their own coverage (perhaps with some kind of increase in salary or an allowance of some kind).
For those of you employed by a large corporation, this takes away one of the key benefits of working for a large organization as they are often able to offer decreased co-pays and out-of-pocket maximums because the power they have with such a large group purchasing from a single source, The inevitable result will be more money out of the employee's pocket in premiums, copays, deductibles, out of pocket maximums and decreased benefit levels in such critical areas as prescription drug coverage and specialty pharmaceuticals like biological products (Enbrel, Humira, etc.) for autoinflammatory diseases and blood derivatives for hemophiliacs.

I got to thinking about the story on Ted Nugent. The fools at CBS have no clue what the man does. He tried to tell them only to have it fall on deaf ears.
Several years the Make a Wish Foundation stopped granting hunting and fishing trips for kids with terminal illnesses. In stepped a group called Catch A Dream Foundation. They fulfill the wishes of a kid that is dying if they want to go after that big buck or big bass. Ted Nugent is a huge part of this. He also works with a foundation that helps our wounded warroirs do the same thing. I bet none of the fools on CBS have any idea on how to bait a hook or scout for deer. Uncle Ted is not extreme he is very passonate about the kids and the wounded warriors.

In this season of political electioneering, I am, for some reason, reminded of a joke I heard long ago:
A charter plane was traveling to DC. On the plane was a Rabbi, a college student, a doctor, a politician, and Henry Kissinger. Soon after takeoff, the pilot comes into the cabin, reaches in a locker, pulls out a pack, and puts it on. After opening the door, he say:" I've got bad news, gentlemen, The plane is severely overloaded and we're going to crash. The problem is, we only have 5 parachutes and there's six of us aboard. Good luck, gentlemen." After which, he jumps out. There are only 4 parachutes left.
After all the remaining men looked at each other, the politician jumps up and declares: "I am a very important member of the government. The entire country is depended upon me and the decisions I make to guide and lead them. I deserve this chance at life." He then reaches into the locker, removes a pack, places it on his back, and jumps. There are only three parachutes left.
The doctor then jumps up and declares "I am a talented surgeon who many people rely upon to save their lives. I deserve this chance at life.' He, too, reaches in, grabs a pack, places it upon his back, and jumps out. There are only two parachust left.
At this point, Henry Kissinger jumps up and declares: "I am the smartest man in the world. My vast knowledge and wisdom can save millions from war, poverty, and famine. I deserve this chance at life." He reaches in, grabs a pack, places it upon his back , and jumps out. There is only one remaining parachute.
This is when the Rabbi turns to the young college student and say: "I've lived a full and rewarding life. I have seen many things, and done many things, and I am satisfied. You are young, and you have many wondrous things available to you. You deserve this chance at life. He then stands up, reaches into the locker, grabs a pack, and hands it to the young college student.
Smiling, the young college student reaches in, grabs a pack, and helps the Rabbi into it. "It's a miracle", say the Rabbi." "It sure is," says the young man, "for the smartest man in the world just jumped out wearing my knapsack."

I was just reading about the hearing down in Gitmo of Khalled Sheik-yer-buti Mooooooooooooooooohemmed and some of the other 9/11 nice guys - you know, from the 'religion of piece'. I guess the hearing didn't go very well, because most of them put on the silent treatment, although one of them - the guy from Yemen with the off-balanced eyes and semi-cretin headshape - got a little 'animated' and had to be restrained.
Anyway, I was struck by a couple of things..............one being that I have a hard time figuring out why these lawyers would take a case like this - given the fact that they will get no cooperation from these lowlifes.............and two, there is a FEMALE lawyer for one of these guys - which in itself is astonishing - but she was dressed up in traditional moooooooooooooooooslem garb, with only part of her face showing - and she wanted the judge to tell the other females at the hearing to dress accordingly, so that her client wouldn't breach any rules of his religion by seeing them!!! You can't make this stuff up!!!
As ugly as these guys are, I'd be demanding that they be completely covered up, so that I couldn't see ANY part of them!!!

Well, bubba, I'm guessin' that if it's NOT a female under the curtains, it sure as hell isn't a queer - because, as you know, there are NO homosexuals in Islam, although I have read that there is a lot of sperm and fecal matter thrown at the American guards down there in Gitmo...............and there certainly aren't any women around where the moooooooooooooooslems are housed!!

I'm happy to say that protests can make a difference, but probably not a Georgetown.
My alma mater was going to have a gay activist artist come for a month, but there was enough protesting that it was cancelled.
Students were upset, but I was not about to donate any more money to a Catholic University that would have as a guest teacher someone who mocks our beliefs.

After all, this is the same Georgetown that removed all religious symbology so The Won could give a speech in their auditorium.

I had to go back and recheck the link before I put this here, but not only is Georgetown having Sebelius speak, they are hosting a Lavender Graduation!
Georgetown should be called a "formerly Catholic university."

Publishing people's email/IP addresses may be against the TOC of his provider. Reporting him to his ISP, or whomever is hosting his web site, may result in his termination or at least force him to clean up his caustic comments.
Looking at his Twitter followers I see Karl Rove, of all people, along with a couple of other luminaries. The bizarre behavior towards you and those who commented on his site may be indicative of acute symptoms of a chronic psychiatric condition. Something's amiss here, unless you can fake your followers on Twitter.
Submitted by Blonde on Sun, 05/06/2012 - 8:38pm.
I don't know if you remember, we had a poster here called Karl Rove, when NB was back in the Wild West days.....great poster, too, I miss the guy.
All I know is this dude is a plusperfect idiot. For cryin' out loud, "my" list has been around since July 2011, as I originally started it here on NB in the Forums, then decided to put it on my blog as it was much easier for me to maintain! It's been re-posted around the intertubes many, many times.
I don't get the hostility either. As you say, this dude is a headcase for Doc Sam. Particularly if you read his "comment" vis-a-vis his profile. One or the other is way, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay off.

But can you think - and that may be a lot to ask - think of any in, let's say the past decade, who HAVEN"T been?

I doubt you or anyone from NewsBusters commented in such a vile fashion as this blogger did on his web page, but even if that were true, why in the world would he want to represent himself so disturbingly? Not the type of behavior one uses if trying to be taken seriously.
It appears the guy may have violated WordPress.com's Terms Of Service agreement (TOS - not TOC as I mistakenly typed), specifically parts 1, 2, 8, and/or 9. He may have violated the TOS of his ISP as well. I don't know what ISP he is paying for internet access but he appears to use SoftLayer.com to host his web site. The Acceptable Use Policy for using a SoftLayer network "cloud" can be read here.
Submitted by Radical1979 on Sun, 05/06/2012 - 9:48pm.
I contacted WordPress, he's not with them. I was directed to Netfirms.. Since it was my email and ISP was published I contacted them, haven't heard back yet.
Submitted by stratman on Sun, 05/06/2012 - 10:11pm.
Try contacting SoftLayer too.
I used a simple WhoIs lookup to find out about SoftLayer.com. Google "WhoIs" and then put in "northsaintpaulnews.com" (without quotes). You can also do a Trace Route to see how many and what stops/servers along the way to his web site from you. I was hoping to get his ISP but only found his cloud server. Others with advanced knowledge may be able to figure it out. (Mr. Shy?)

Thank you! I'm getting on notifying the provider now. I thought it was wordpress, but was notified it was Netfirms. If anyone could take a screencap of that lovely diatribe with the ISP's and emails I would appreciate it.
Submitted by stratman on Sun, 05/06/2012 - 9:53pm.
You are welcome. I thought it was WordPress also.
You can save a copy of the web page using Firefox by going to the page to be saved, click on File, Save Page As, choose a place to save the file and a name you want for the file, click the drop down box for "save as type" and choose Web Page, HTML only. A similar process is used with Internet Explorer and probably other web browsers. The important point is to save as HTML only instead of Complete. Saving as HTML will result in one file of the entire page while saving as complete may require multiple files to do the same thing.
I have saved a copy of his web page. Let me know if you are successful or would like a copy of my save.

Wow, Blonde, this l'il pencil-dick sounds like he's a real piece of work - or piece of something!!! Sounds like you've got the posse on him - the guy will be sorry that he messed with the NB Babes!!!! HEY - my girls soccer team used to be called that!!! My construction company is called Nicely-Built (since that's my name - DUH!!), so my teams were always called the Nicely-Built Babes!!! Of course, that name irritated some people, but my girls wore it proudly!!!
Submitted by Blonde on Sun, 05/06/2012 - 7:58pm.
I'll wear it proudly, too!
Submitted by killa37 on Sun, 05/06/2012 - 11:54pm.
HA!!! My Nicely-Built workshirts are in higher demand than I can afford to keep up with, since I only give them away!! Since I've gotten this new project started, I'm allready under pressure from a lot of subs and materialmen for shirts - so I'm going to have to get a few dozen made up - and they ALL will disappear!!! I guess I could take a photo of them and send it to you - you have to be open-minded and have a good sense of humor to accept them - but like I said, about 99% of the people I know like them - including my client's wife, which is a plus!!!
I've made womens shirts too - and they disappeared quickly!!
But for my Babes - well, we had to wear the league sponsered uniforms, but I always bought my girls matching 'bumble-bee' soccer socks, and matching scrunchies for their hair.............and, boy, would that get me in trouble with the league!!! But my girls were the best looking team on the island, and also played good soccer - AND had a lot of fun!!!
The league had a REAL battle-axe lib know-it-all comminssioner for a couple years there - and she always tried to make things hard on me. But, since I was the head referee of the whole island (and a damn good one too, if I may say so myself!!), and also coaching a team.................I proposed to her to 'fire' me, if she didn't like what I was doing - which was having a lot of fun and giving the youth a good time - in an era of their life where things could go astray.................well, she was a iron-fisted monster (I think her and Nurse Ratchett would've made a good couple!!!) who 'ruled' by fear and intimidation, but she wasn't stupid enough to take me up on my offer!! And guess what - she was voted out shortly thereafter, and I was still around, having fun!!!

And, for the author, who stated, "though one thing Mr Hollande will not repeat is the disastrous tax-and-spend policies introduced by France's last Socialist President, François Mitterrand, in 1981", I have one thing to say. Wanna bet? He's a socialist, like his American Idol, and he can't really help himself.
