Merry Christmas from the Country Store


And when they came to Bethlehem
Where our dear Saviour lay,
They found Him in a manger,
Where oxen feed on hay

Say, how did that Thanksgiving Obamacare "talk" with the family work out?

Via RightScoop:



The laugh is on Barack Obama, this year's Thanksgiving turkey. Of course, while we can laugh now, it's going to be tougher after Obama's destruction of medical care in the USA is complete.

Obama's Thanksgiving Turkey Joke






More comedy gold from the Obama regime designed to enliven your Thanksgiving holiday. The Clown Prince has ordered his minions to talk up the train wreck at family gatherings on Thanksgiving:

Loathe peaceful holidays? Detest the spirit of agreeableness and good will that tends to pervade during this time of year? Well, if you're longing for it to be 'tis the season of debates, irritations, and shouting matches, you're in luck: The Obama administration thinks the holidays are the perfect time to gather round and discuss … Obamacare.


Wow, that'll be a crowd pleaser.

Wary about the effect bringing up the most polarizing political topic among your relatives and friends who likely span the blue-purple-red spectrum will have? Don't be, because President Barack Obama's Organizing for Action has launched a website with helpful tips about how to have "the talk."

The tips including asking your family and guests coming over for the holiday to bring the information they'd need to sign up for Obamacare, because it's absolutely not awkward at all to tell someone you'd like him to bring wine and oh, his social security number and annual salary, too.

These folks live in a different world, but unfortunately they visit ours. Even worse they dragged along the Moocher's publicity team: Michelle Obama's 14 Obamacare talking points for Thanksgiving dinner. My advice for anyone having dinner with Michelle Obama is to stay well back while she is feeding, but sticking to the talking points:

Find a Quiet Place to Shop: You can start your conversation anywhere, but to shop for health coverage, you will want a more quiet, private place to make a phone call or use the internet.

Start by asking: “Have you thought about signing up for health insurance on the new marketplace?”

Offer to walk them through it: “Would you like to take some time with me to sign up right now?”


I guess no one told the Royal Family, but the phone call won't do you much good:

According to the administration, the sign-up call centers are scheduled to be closed for Thanksgiving. Holiday shoppers will instead have to navigate the rocky website.


And as for the Obamacare website: Obama Admin: Please Don't Use Obamacare Website This Weekend.

Hmmm, some good may come of this. While the family idiot(s) corral some unfortunate family member in the den for hours trying to register for Obamacare, everyone else will be able to peacefully digest their dinners. But watch out, because if they get through, the Obamacare victim will likely be suffering from massive sticker shock afterward.

Barack Obama: The buck always stops somewhere else

A Phalanx of Lies:

CNN has been pondering what they call “a particularly tough few days at the White House.” “Four out of five Americans have little or no trust in their government to do anything right,” says chief political analyst Gloria Borger. “And now Obama probably feels the same way.” Our hearts go out to him, poor wee disillusioned thing. We are assured by the headline writers that the president was “unaware” of Obamacare’s website defects, and the NSA spying, and the IRS targeting of his political enemies, and the Justice Department bugging the Associated Press, and pretty much anything else you ask him about. But, as he put it, “nobody’s madder than me” at this shadowy rogue entity called the “Government of the United States” that’s running around pulling all this stuff. And, once he finds out who’s running this Government of the United States rogue entity, he’s gonna come down as hard on him as he did on that videomaker in California; he’s gonna send round the National Park Service SWAT team to teach that punk a lesson he won’t forget.

Gloria Borger and CNN seem inclined to swallow the line that the president of the United States is not aware that he is president of the United States: For the media, just a spoonful of bovine manure makes the Obamacare medicine go down. It remains to be seen whether the American citizenry will be so genially indulgent.

Not to worry, the Obama regime's talent-free éminence grise Valerie Jarret explains all:

 “I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. . . . He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability — the extraordinary, uncanny ability — to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them and make sense out of them, and I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. . . . So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy. . . . He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”

Valerie likes to spread it on thick, I guess. The problem is that more folks are noticing that Barack Obama is more like a petulant child star propped up in front of the public to read excuses crafted by his handlers and itching to get back off stage to smoke some choom with his pals. Think of Lindsay Lohan with a sun tan.

The chief business of the American people is Welfare

Welfare, Not Full-Time Work, Is Now America's No. 1 Occupation

"Is Welfare The New Normal?" we wondered in an editorial last Thursday, and we didn't have long to wait for an answer. On Friday an answer came back in depressing new data from the Census Bureau.

CNSNews.com's indefatigable data hound, Terence P. Jeffrey, dug into a few routine Census releases recently and discovered something shocking: More people in America today are on welfare than have full-time jobs.

Calvin Coolidge (1925):

“After all, the chief business of the American people is business. They are profoundly concerned with producing, buying, selling, investing and prospering in the world. I am strongly of the opinion that the great majority of people will always find these the moving impulses of our life.”

Barack Obama

After all, the chief business of the American people is obtaining handouts from the government. They are profoundly concerned with kicking back, listening to some tunes, smoking a lot of choom, and using their EBT cards. The Democrat party and I are strongly of the opinion that the great majority of people will find these the moving impulses of our life.

Cracker Barrel Philosopher (with a hat tip to Margaret Thatcher):

"It'll be quite a party until they run out of other people's money."

Sham Wow Obama stages an Infomercial in the Rose Garden


Who would have thought we'd see the President of the United States, Leader of the Free World, standing in front of a bunch of shills trying to fleece a television audience by urging them to call a toll-free number to get a "great deal" because the Web site isn't working?

Update: About those shills with the Sham Wow guy:

Of the 13 people who flanked President Obama during his speech defending Obamacare in the Rose Garden Monday, just three had successfully registered for the new Obamacare exchanges.

...

The three people who were able to register included: Janice Baker, who introduced the president and as of last week was the only person to have successfully enrolled in health care coverage through Delaware’s state exchange; David Hall, an IT consultant who signed up for health care through the DC Health Link; and Zohre Abolfazli, who was able to register through healthcare.gov last night and still needs to shop for her “best plan.”

Besides basking in the aura of "The One", they got a free trip to Washington D.C. and a tour of the White House so we know their price, but the original Sham Wow guy could do better than that!

Default Hysteria: Because Reporters Weren't Math Majors (and Democrats are Liars)

“None of You [Reporters] Were Math Majors, Were You?”

Default hysteria continues in Washington, in defiance of the most basic facts of arithmetic. Some Republicans have even been taken in, but one who is having none of it is Congressman David Schweikert of Arizona, the former treasurer of Maricopa County:

[snip]

[T]here is no such thing as default unless there is an actual evil attempt from the administration. When you have 18 percent of GDP coming in in cash, less than 2 percent going out in debt coverage—I’m stunned you all fall for it in the press. None of you were math majors, were you?”

But it's such a useful misunderstanding for Prince Obammy, The Liar in Chief.

Check out the abandoned shopping carts from Saturday's EBT outage

EBT (the generic name for USA's welfare credit card system) had some technology problems in a number of states on Saturday and the undeserving poor were mighty upset. The best part for me however were the photos posted on Instagram of the abandoned shopping carts.


No rice & beans or ramen noodles for this crowd! My first reaction was that I can see why the USA has the fattest poor people in the world, but a friend says I am out of date. These shoppers loading up on meat and Jimmy Dean Croissants are reselling the loot to cheap restaurants, bodegas and convenience stores for cash so that they can buy some really fun stuff. It certainly gives me a warm feeling to know that our taxes are so well spent.

What could go wrong when background checks are skipped for Obamacare navigators?

Obamacare ‘navigator’ in Kansas has outstanding arrest warrant:

Rosilyn Wells — the Director of Outreach and Enrollment for the Heartland Community Health-care Center (HCHC) – is “the only full-time Affordable Care Act navigator in Lawrence,” according to the Lawrence Journal-World.

Wells was certified as an Obamacare navigator despite her financial history, which includes a bankruptcy in 2003, a 2007 civil charge from a local check cashing business called Midwest Checkrite for writing a bad check, being more than $1700 behind on her state tax bill, and having an outstanding arrest warrant in nearby Shawnee County. Wells lives and works in Douglass County.

Just give Roz all your personal financial details - she'll handle it!

The Debt Ceiling is the Settled Law of the Land - So Democrats will refuse to change it?

The Debt Ceiling is the Law of the Land

Over the past few weeks, Democrats have indicated that they have no intention of negotiating over Obamacare, opting instead to shut down the government.  They are justifying their obstinacy by asserting that Obamacare is the law of the land.  Well, if that is the game they want to play, we should return the favor with the debt ceiling.  The debt ceiling, pursuant to the Second Liberty Bond Act of 1917, is the law of the land.  And it has been so for far longer than Obamacare.

And while we're at it:

The only way we default on the debt is if we fail to pay the interest on the public debt.  According to the updated budget projection from the CBO, interest on the debt will be roughly $237 billion for 2014.  Thanks to the short-term revenue benefits of the fiscal cliff and Obamacare tax hikes, the federal government is expected to rake in a record $3.042 trillion from the private economy this year.

Let’s engage in a simple math exercise.  $3.042 trillion – $237 billion = $2.805 trillion.  As long as the Treasury pays the first $237 billion in revenue to the shareholders of our debt, there will be no default, and we will have $2.805 trillion left to spend.  Again, default is taken off the table.  Discussion over.

Hit the link for how to spend the remaining loot, but this is a perfect opportunity to starve some of the more outrageous government boondoggles that infest the Federal Government.

Marine Vets take the Marine Iwo Jima Memorial back from Obama



"I took the picture yesterday afternoon. Those barricades had been there at least a day. People can still walk into the Memorial area, but for many elderly and disabled vets, it is important they be driven and park right next to the statue," the person who took this picture emails.

"There has been no coverage of Iwo Jima being closed and it is a routine stop for Honor Flight visitors."

So how did that work out?

UPDATE: I'm told, "The Syracuse Honor Flight just knocked down the barrier and a couple hundred of them are at the Memorial now."

Bikers breach Barrycades at WWII Memorial, Obama deploys attack dogs at Vietnam Memorial

Obama and his thugs are doubling down on stupid to enforce his government shutdown.

At the WWII memorial: THE BARRICADES REMOVED ONCE AGAIN AND ALL ARE COMING THROUGH THE FRONT ~ GOD BLESS THOSE ON THE SCENE ~


Meanwhile at the Vietnam Memorial: OUTRAGE!… Obama Deploys German Shepherds Against US Veterans. 






Per Rep. Steve King (R-IA):
Vietnam Wall entrance is open to all. Guard dog and guards are solely for intimidation. Go in. God Bless 'em

Obama will spend any amount of money to make citizens feel the pain of his government shutdown





Obama Instructs Federal Workers To ‘Make Life As Difficult For Americans As They Can

I'm not going to try to list all the concessionaires at National Parks and Monuments who are privately run and actually send money to the Treasury but have been shut down by Obama. Here's just one - Exclusive: Pisgah Inn Owner: National Park Service 'Out There with Lights Flashing Right Now'

Scenic overlooks and hiking and and biking trails shut down, some with officers stationed there to enforce the shutdown.

Feds Try to Close the OCEAN Because of Obama's Shutdown

Priests threatened with arrest if they minister to military during shutdown

All 24 overseas US military cemeteries are shut down

Grocery stores on US military bases are shut down, but the golf course at Andrews Air Force Base is open. I wonder if the Petulant Dictator is going to hit the links? Not to mention that while the fountain at the WWII Memorial is off, the one at the White House is still on.

Obama orders the Barrycades around the WWII Memorial be wired shut

Petulant Dictator Obama is still venting his wrath on World II Vets.




Not only did Obama have his minions erect barriers around the open air World War II Memorial, but he ordered them wired and zip tied shut.



I guess he forgot who he was dealing with.

This was hard




This was easy



What next, guard towers, attack dogs, razor wire, and mine fields?

Obama off his teleprompter again - watch him explain why workers should be fired if they strike without realizing it

Obama: Imagine if workers could shut down a factory just because they didn’t get what they want 

For more wisdom from the Fairy Prince,  check out his attempt to explain raising the debt ceiling:
“This is important,” Mr. Obama said. “Raising the debt ceiling is not the same as approving more spending, any more than making your monthly payments adds to the total cost of your truck.”

Plowing ahead, Mr. Obama said, “I — you don’t say, well, I’m not going — I’m not going to pay my — my — my bill, my note for my truck because I’m going to save money. No, you’re not saving money. You already bought the truck, right? You have to pay the bills. You — you are not — you’re not saving money.”

Then the president seemed to give an argument supporting Republicans’ call for lower spending and less borrowing.

“You — you might have decided at the front end not to buy the truck,” Mr. Obama said. “But once you bought the truck, you can’t say you’re saving money just by not paying the bills. Does that make sense?”

The audience of unionized auto workers cheered and applauded.

“So raising the debt ceiling — it doesn’t cost a dime,” Mr. Obama continued. “It does not add a penny to our deficits.”

A few moments later, as if realizing that his explanation of the debt ceiling was getting lost in translation, the president tried his truck analogy again.

“So — so I — I just want to break this down one more time,” he said. “I go into a Ford dealership, drive off with a new F-150. Unless I paid cash, I’ve still got to pay for it each month. I can’t just say, you know, I’m not going to make my car payment this month. That’s what Congress is threatening to do, just saying, ‘I’m not going to pay the bills.’”

Smartest President ever - if he were President of Elbonia.

More Obama Shutdown Theater: NPS Orders Closure of Park that Receives No Federal Funding

Obama thugs gone wild:

The National Park Service has ordered the closure of a Virginia park that sits on federal land, even though the government provides no resources for its maintenance or operation.

The Claude Moore Colonial Farm announced on Wednesday that NPS has ordered it to suspend operations until Congress agrees to a deal to fund the federal government.

According to Anna Eberly, managing director of the farm, NPS sent law enforcement agents to the park on Tuesday evening to remove staff and volunteers from the property.

I'm surprised that they didn't send a SWAT team. In any case, it was more than Obama sent to Benghazi.

“You do have to wonder about the wisdom of an organization that would use staff they don’t have the money to pay to evict visitors from a park site that operates without costing them any money,” she said.

The park withstood prior government shutdowns, noting in a news release that the farm will be closed to the public for the first time in 40 years.

“In previous budget dramas, the Farm has always been exempted since the NPS provides no staff or resources to operate the Farm,” Eberly explained in an emailed statement.

“In all the years I have worked with the National Park Service … I have never worked with a more arrogant, arbitrary and vindictive group representing the NPS,” Eberly said.

Welcome to Obama World.

First Obama Pillaged WWII Vets' Medicare, Now He Tries To Steal Their Monument

First Obama pillaged Medicare to fund his Obamacare train wreck, now he is trying to prevent aged WWII Vets from visiting the open air World War II Memorial in Washington so he can maximize the pain of the government shutdown he ordered.



I guess the Thug-in-Chief really didn't notice that it is an open air monument paid for with private funds:

The National World War II Memorial was funded almost entirely by private contributions, as specified in Public Law 103-32. The campaign received more than $197 million in cash and pledges. Support came from hundreds of thousands of individual Americans, hundreds of corporations and foundations, veterans groups, dozens of civic, fraternal and professional organizations, states and one territory, and students in 1,200 schools across the country.

Donated and pledged funds were used to cover the total project costs of approximately $182 million. These costs include site selection and design, construction and sculpture, a National Park Service maintenance fee required by the Commemorative Works Act, groundbreaking and dedication ceremonies, fund raising, and the 11-year administrative costs of the project from its inception in 1993 through completion in 2004.

Remaining funds are held on deposit with the U.S. Treasury in a National WWII Memorial Trust Fund. The funds will be used by the American Battle Monuments Commission solely to benefit the World War II Memorial.

Or maybe Obama spent all the money on one of his wife's vacations. In any case, Obama goons are now threatening Vets with arrest when they take their long anticipated Honor Flight trip to see it.

... when he called the parks service, he was told they would face arrest. "I said, are you kidding me? You're going to arrest a 90/91-year-old veteran from seeing his memorial? If it wasn't for them it wouldn't be there. She said, 'That's correct sir.'"


Smooth move, Pondscum.

Crybaby Obama Tries to Explain Why He Shut Down the Government while Vets Take the WWII Monument

Crybaby Obama took to the airwaves this afternoon to try to explain why he shut down the government. Here's a hint, he says it wasn't his fault after arriving more than an hour late for the press conference. Hmm, always the same old story.


Meanwhile, Obama has his minions out trying to maximize shutdown pain and one of their gambits was to shut down the various Washington DC monuments including the World War II Memorial. That didn't sit too well with some WWII vets who took it over with the help of some Republican Congressmen.



Next they should head for the Senate.

More good shutdown news - the EPA won't be able to plot against the people

Government Shutdown to Delay EPA $1 Gallon Gas Price Hike

As the death toll for Government Shutdown Apocalypse 2013 continues to grow, it appears that the EPA’s plans to make it even more expensive for Americans to drive a car were “shut down” by the government shutdown.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will take one of the biggest hits of any federal agency if the government shuts down this week, operating with under 7 percent of its employees, according to guidance issued by the agency.
Just think of how much less the EPA will be able to do with only 7 percent of its employees. That EPA SWAT Team may have to sit out the week. Someone else will have to send $700,000 to Thailand’s pig farmers. And someone else will have to hike fuel prices.
Among those furloughed would be most workers at the Office of Air and Radiation, which is in charge of writing and implementing most of the EPA’s major air pollution rules. The clock would also stop, for now, on the EPA’s eagerly-awaited proposal on renewable fuel volume standards for 2014.
Who exactly is eagerly awaiting this proposal? Drivers who can’t wait to pay a buck more for gas.
Not to mention the folks who run most outdoor power equipment like lawn and garden tools. Next time you have to have the carburetor replaced due to ethanol sludge clogging it up, be sure to think of the EPA bureaucrats. And wish them longer layoffs in the future.

Obama and the Democrats love train wrecks so much they'll shut down the government to get one


We all know that Obama and his pals just love nothing better than a creepy bureaucratic boondoggle like Obamacare that they themselves aren't saddled with, but this is hitting too close to home for most American citizens.





However, now that they can't get their way, Obama and the Democrats are getting all huffy and are going to shut down the government until the Republicans kowtow to Obamacare. Of course, the Federal government "shutdown" is more apparent than real and mostly means that the Washington elite won't be able to cook up more ways to afflict the little people. Sounds like good news to me.

Today's Hoot: Ted Cruz squashes Democrat Dick Durbin like the roach he is

Ted Cruz was finishing his 21 hour filibuster and who scuttled out of the woodwork but Dick Durbin, the Illinois Cockroach:

In the last hour, even as he said he grew “weary” as his time arguing against ObamaCare was coming to a close, he found himself in a debate with the able and smart [sic] Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin on the Congress’s generous health-care plan.

Durbin complained that Cruz wanted to deny health care to the uninsured; did he not, Durbin asked, enjoy the benefits of the generous congressional health-care package himself?

Cruz said he wouldn’t answer Durbin until Durbin first replied to three questions Cruz had posed. Durbin, with an “a-ha” gesture, responded by saying it was clear Cruz was simply refusing to answer his embarrassing question.

He’d walked into Cruz’s trap. For then Cruz said, no, Senator, I’m eligible for the congressional plan — but I’m not enrolled in it.

Durbin thought he had Cruz cornered by bringing up his reliance on the absurdly generous health package for Congress. But since Cruz doesn’t rely on it, Durbin humiliated himself in what was supposed to be his gotcha moment.

Despite his marathon of speaking and standing and arguing, after nearly a day on his feet, Cruz — there is no other term for it — squashed Durbin like a bug.

Dicky sure must have been shocked that not everyone in Congress is as sleazy as he is.

Say, how did that Million Muslim March work out?

D.C. Police estimate over 1 million bikers roar into Washington D.C., hardly a Muslim in sight. I guess we know why the Million Muslim March did not get much media play. When only 21 marchers show up, it's hard to put much lipstick on the pig.

As for the million bikers who roared through Washington, DC, the Mainstream Media were probably just too busy with important stuff to notice.

2013: Never Forget and Never Forgive 9/11

Never Forget, Never Forgive 9/11
Click the picture for the Remember the Blood of Heroes slideshow which serves as a reminder of reality while the apologists and buffoons seek to paper over what happened 12 years ago today.

Speaking of apologists and buffoons, I wonder if Barack Obama and his flying monkeys will need ear plugs today as the 2 Million Bikers hit Washington DC:





And like most American citizens these folks have some bones to pick with the chattering class that infests the Obama administration and the Washington DC environs.



Reminds me of the Sons of Liberty forming up and heading to Tea Stamp HQ.




Here they come indeed:
