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:


[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 My first reaction was that I can see why the USA has the fattest poor people in the world, but a friend says I am out of date.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!

Cory Booker doesn't live in Newark or even New Jersey

Neighbors: Cory Booker never lived in Newark. The apparent next Senator from New Jersey and current Mayor of Newark is a phony. He'll fit right in in the Senate.
