The Character of our politicians

This is likely one of the most redundant BLOGS available.

Little needs to be said about their Character....

But somebody suggested that I post questions I posed to then candidate Mark Sanford.

The questions were originally sent via email, with no reply.

Later I went to a campaign event where sANFORD was THE speaker.

I asked, in public, why I got no reply to my questions.

He said... must have slipped through the cracks.

I then asked if he would accept a written copy of my questions and provide answers to them.

He said, in public, sure.

I then handed my questions to him.

THAT was the END. I never got a reply nor did I get even a courtesy "beg-off".

I leave the rating of his Character to you.

...and you can apply your rating to others as you see fit.

Here are my questions..... were they reasonable?....

Have you been "stiffed" by your servant?.... Put some sunshine on them.

He Promised..... Hold him to it

Time to call him out.

We have had so much bullying from Obama that it is time to push back.

Here is one example. It should appeal to a lot of people.

Obama needs to dragged into court and mad to live up to his promise.

There has already been actual damage.

This is not a case of proving some hidden secret. His statements were public..

He did not say “some”. He said “you”.

Hopefully his evil intent will have sunshine brightly splashed on it.

At worst he will weasel out with some legalese… but his snake-oil-salesmanship will be on display.


 = = = = =


Not only did he say that but……….

He preceded it with

we will keep this promise……….

After he said simply …PERIOD

Check me out

Sure impeachment should be started… but more……

He should be challenged in court to keep his promise!

Thousands Of Americans See Their Health Plans Canceled

Kaiser Health News  |  By Anna Gorman and Julie Appleby Posted: 10/21/2013 5:07 pm EDT  |  Updated: 10/22/2013 12:06 pm EDT


 Health plans are sending hundreds of thousands of cancellation letters to people who buy their own coverage, frustrating some consumers who want to keep what they have and forcing others to buy more costly policies.

The main reason insurers offer is that the policies fall short of what the Affordable Care Act requires starting Jan. 1. Most are ending policies sold after the law passed in March 2010. At least a few are cancelling plans sold to people with pre-existing medical conditions.

By all accounts, the new policies will offer consumers better coverage, in some cases, for comparable cost -- especially after the inclusion of federal subsidies for those who qualify. The law requires policies sold in the individual market to cover 10 “essential” benefits, such as prescription drugs, mental health treatment and maternity care. In addition, insurers cannot reject people with medical problems or charge them higher prices. The policies must also cap consumers’ annual expenses at levels lower than many plans sold before the new rules.

But the cancellation notices, which began arriving in August, have shocked many consumers in light of President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their plans if they liked them.

“I don’t feel like I need to change, but I have to,” said Jeff Learned, a television editor in Los Angeles, who must find a new plan for his teenage daughter, who has a health condition that has required multiple surgeries.

An estimated 14 million people purchase their own coverage because they don’t get it through their jobs. Calls to insurers in several states showed that many have sent notices.

Florida Blue, for example, is terminating about 300,000 policies, about 80 percent of its individual policies in the state. Kaiser Permanente in California has sent notices to 160,000 people – about half of its individual business in the state. Insurer Highmark in Pittsburgh is dropping about 20 percent of its individual market customers, while Independence Blue Cross, the major insurer in Philadelphia, is dropping about 45 percent.

Some Policies Targeted

Both Independence and Highmark are cancelling so-called “guaranteed issue” policies, which had been sold to customers who had pre-existing medical conditions when they signed up. Policyholders with regular policies because they did not have health problems will be given an option to extend their coverage through next year.

Consumer advocates say such cancellations raise concerns that companies may be targeting their most costly enrollees.

They may be “doing this as an opportunity to push their populations into the exchange and purge their systems” of policyholders they no longer want, said Jerry Flanagan, an attorney with the advocacy group Consumer Watchdog in California.

Insurers deny that, saying they are encouraging existing customers to re-enroll in their new plans.

“We continue to cover people with all types of health conditions,” said Highmark spokeswoman Kristin Ash.

She said some policyholders who may have faced limited coverage for their medical conditions will get new plans with “richer benefits” and the policies “in most cases, will be at a lower rate.”

Paula Sunshine, vice president of marketing with Independence, said the insurer hopes the cancelled policyholders will “choose Blue when they decide on a new plan.”

Higher Costs?

Some receiving cancellations say it looks like their costs will go up, despite studies projecting that about half of all enrollees will get income-based subsidies.

Kris Malean, 56, lives outside Seattle, and has a health policy that costs $390 a month with a $2,500 deductible and a $10,000 in potential out-of-pocket costs for such things as doctor visits, drug costs or hospital care.

As a replacement, Regence BlueShield is offering her a plan for $79 more a month with a deductible twice as large as what she pays now, but which limits her potential out-of-pocket costs to $6,250 a year, including the deductible.

“My impression was …there would be a lot more choice, driving some of the rates down,” said Malean, who does not believe she is eligible for a subsidy.

Regence spokeswoman Rachelle Cunningham said the new plans offer consumers broader benefits, which “in many cases translate into higher costs.”

“The arithmetic is inescapable,” said Patrick Johnston, chief executive officer of the California Association of Health Plans. Costs must be spread, so while some consumers will see their premiums drop, others will pay more -- “no matter what people in Washington say.”

Health insurance experts say new prices will vary and much depends on where a person lives, their age and the type of policy they decide to buy. Some, including young people and those with skimpy or high-deductible plans, may see an increase. Others, including those with health problems or who buy coverage with higher deductibles than they have now, may see lower premiums.

Blue Shield of California sent roughly 119,000 cancellation notices out in mid-September, about 60 percent of its individual business. About two-thirds of those policyholders will see rate increases in their new policies, said spokesman Steve Shivinsky.

Like other insurers, the Blue Shield letters let customers know they have to make a decision by Dec. 31 or they will automatically be enrolled in a recommended plan.

“There is going to be a certain amount of churn in the marketplace as people have to make their decisions,” Shivinsky said.

LIC - Liar In Chief


This is long.... but I didn't build it...HE did!

The Elite Socialist Democrat Political Ruling Class President  clearly illustrated his incompetence when he appointed a Debt Reduction Committee and, after they completed his directive and published their recommendations to the Elite President he totally avoided them and their recommendations and has made it clear he wants nothing to do with his own commission.

He has gone out of his way to make it appear he did not appoint the Debt Reduction Committee.  This is just one of the many examples of his policy of saying one thing and doing (or meaning) another while claiming to have never been a part of the original lie.

 He Said Debt was a Problem then said Debt was not a Problem while at the same time the American people were polled and 83% said it was a Big Problem. His lack of knowledge, experience, competence, training and leadership shows through clearly when he must lie to the American people repeatedly to push his Agenda to change the United States into a Marxist style Elite Ruling Political Ruling Class Government. It also shows when he is so paranoid the his own Marines have to be stripped of their rifle bolts to march in his parade.

 His need to continually campaign and sell himself to the American People again clearly illustrates his deficiencies and narcissist sickness.

Below is a list of Obama’s documented lies so far with the most recent lies first. If you see we are missing a documented lie Submit the lie here.

Lies During Fourth Year

“The sequester is not something that I’ve proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed.”

Obama’s biggest lie, “The Sequester will cause 800,000 people to be laid off and destroy our economy. The Sequester is a small part of the 3.5 Trillion Dollar budget and only affects the rate of growth of the budget, it is all lies”!

 “Mitt Romney raised nursing home fees eight times.”

“Mitt Romney called the Arizona law a model for the nation.”

“Planned Parenthood provides mammograms”
Spero News

“We got back every dime we used to rescue the financial system”

Benghazi violence was caused by an internet video & demonstrations
State Department

“Mitt Romney Plans to fire Big Bird”

“Under Gov. Romney’s definition … Donald Trump is a small business.”

Because of Obamacare, “over the last two years, health care premiums have gone up — it’s true — but they’ve gone up slower than any time in the last 50 years.”

“I think it’s important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration”

Romney and Ryan will gut pell grants for low-income college students.

My budget will cut the deficit by $4 Trillion over 10 years.

Think about this…. The deficit is $1Trillion +/-.  So, technically he just “claimed” (less better than a “promise”) that his budget ( his budget?...I haven’t seen one in 4 years) will totally eliminate the deficit  with $3trillion left over…presumably to reduce DEBT?

….or… ooops… he was talking about the reduction from INCREASES.

….or….ooops… we continue to run deficits of $1+Trillion each year for added DEBT of $10 Trillion… BUT… my budget(?) will only increase DEBT by $^Trillion… so there is it…a reduction of $4 Trillion!

“I am told that Governor Romney’s new running mate, Paul Ryan, might be around Iowa the next few days,” he said while in Council Bluffs, Iowa. “He is one of the leaders of Congress standing in the way. So if you happen to see Congressman Ryan, tell him how important this farm bill is to Iowa and our rural communities.”
House passed bill on August 2, 2012 (Paul Ryan voted yes)

The American automobile industry has come roaring back…So now I want to say what we did with the auto industry, we can do it in manufacturing across America. Let’s make sure advanced, high-tech manufacturing jobs take root here, not in China. And that means supporting investment here. Governor Romney … invested in companies that were called ‘pioneers’ of outsourcing. I don’t want to outsource. I want to insource.

Promises Made - Promises Wept -01 - I will Cut Taxes

This is a revision of the original post.

There is a new graphic about Cabela's and more obama broken promises.......

I will cut taxes

I will cut taxes - cut taxes - for 95 percent of all working families, because, in an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle class.
Barack Obama



How about this…………Cabela's explicitly displays obamacare tax... ON EVERYBODY

Need more? How about this……

 = = = = =

If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists - to protect them and to promote their common welfare - all else is lost.
Barack Obama


hmmmmmmmm.... The People can't trust theit Government............hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!

Or this …………………

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I, therefore, intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt.


ARE YOU KIDDING ME.... FAILED LEADERSHIP! ......and he goes to sleep at night???/


Now we have the Fiscal Cliff debacle.

How Will the Fiscal Cliff Tax Deal Affect Your Paycheck?

The answer is ….  It REDUCES it…. It RAISES your taxes; how much depends……

It depends on your Marital Status, Deductions Claimed and Income.

Here are some examples



Income, $

Increase, %


















A family of 4 is hit harder than a single dude!

So….. how do you feel about

….. I will cut taxes - cut taxes - for 95 percent of all working families, because, in an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle class.

Presidential Seal Abandons Obama,

Moves to Vancouver, Canada

In what’s seen as another serious blow to public perception of the Obama administration’s competence, the presidential seal told reporter Payne Hertz, standing in for Rajjpuut, she was leaving her long time post in Washington, D. C. due to “irreconcilable differences” with President Barack Obama, top administration officials, the Obama czars and First Lady Michelle Obama. The seal, who doesn’t speak human languages vocally and is only semi-fluent in English, had to tap out her Spanish language answers in Morse code on a bongo drum in exchange for sardines turning a short interview into a long, drawn out beat-bop session. Our 96-year old veteran of the journalistic wars claims that he constantly found himself interrupting “the music” to get back to the thread of the interview . . . . “Rather like a really extended Greenwich Village poetry session,” according to Hertz. The video-recorded bongo serenade translates to this:

Hertz: Hola, Como esta` usted? (Hello, Wasap?)

PSL: Estoy harto de Obama hasta aqui (raises flipper above head and says, “I’m fed with Obama at least this much”)

Hertz: OK. How long have you served as the presidential seal?

PSL: Actually, I was the presidential sea lion, most of you humans don’t appreciate the difference . . . .

Hertz: Oh, yeah, I can see your tiny ears. And your flippers are really long; do you have any underfur at all?

PSL: Just a little, of course we sea lions can actually walk on all four flippers and are much more intelligent than those damn seals (sneers). That’s part of the problem. Obama gave me four promises and he’s reneged on all of them.

Hertz: Before we get into that, isn’t it true that Vice President Biden has accused you of “racism?” And . . . .

PSL: Oh, that again. I accuse the veep of stupidity, just as I accuse seals of stupidity. It’s not racism to say that a snail is slow, a skunk stinks or a seal is stupid. Take it up with National Geographic and Discover magazines. They’ve both done testing and seals average 70% lower IQs than we sea lions do and they come out only a point or two above Mr. Biden and Michelle Obama.

Hertz: You’re calling the First Lady unintelligent?

PSL: Look who she married. When it comes to capitalism and the spirit of the U.S. Constitution he’s an illiterate and an ignoramus. On economics, if you can show me a less intelligent fellow . . . .

Hertz: Hold it, you can’t just go around calling down the President of the United States . . . .

PSL: Listen, he made four promises to me and he didn’t keep one of them that’s batting .000 in my book and except for being a pretty-boy and making an occasional four-foot putt or three-point shot, there isn’t much there.

Hertz: Yeah, ah . . . . What were the promises?

PSL: For #1 He would introduce me within three days after the inauguration and explain to the American public the differences between seals and sea lions. He said it would be an excellent “teachable moment.” Instead he’s had the EPA undergo a “spread the intelligence” campaign to call us all “pinnipeds.” It’s like lumping human civilization in with monkey tribes and lemurs and calling you all “primates” to “spread the IQ wealth.”

Hertz: And?

PSL: #2 He said he’d provide me with my favorite snack after every televised appearance with him. #3 He’d allow me input into the Economic Recovery Board. #4 He refrain from any actions against gold traders . . . .

Hertz: Obama promised to allow a seal . . . .

PSL: Sea lion, damnit . . . .

Hertz: Excuse me, Obama promised to allow a sea lion to help make administration policy?

PSL: What? You think I could do worse?

Hertz: OK, OK, tell me more about the promises . . . .

PSL: Well, the most disappointing was about the “teachable moment” and then the snacks . . . .

Hertz: Skip those two . . . just promises #3 and #4.

PSL: Well, he tried to whip it past me, but while he was putting funded abortions in Obamacare, he also snuck in a bunch of onerous control over gold traders . . . I think it was on page 752 . . . I’ve got a cousin near Portland’s really going to be ill-affected by that one. As for the Economic Recovery Board people: they’re only a slightly paler shade of pink then Mr. “Jobs President” himself . . . they’re all experts at killing jobs.

Hertz: You’re claiming the president is a Marxist?

PSL: I swim in the water and hang out with sea lions; he populates his inner circle with commies . . . you get known by the company you keep . . . .

Hertz: That’s hardly conclusive . . . .

PSL: You don’t read much do you, fella?

Hertz: Excuse me?

PSL: You’re a liberal, huh? Dreams from My Father, well, youngster, his father’s dreams included 100% taxes.

Hertz: Well, you’re just a sea lion. Sorry, that was uncalled for, ‘er tell me about the problem with the snacks.

PSL: Pardon me too, I shouldn’t have referred to your age . . . . just get so damned mad, you can’t imagine what it’s like being surrounded by anti-American pinheads 24/7. It was right there in my contract, “four north Pacific herring” after every televised appearance with the two of us . . . and instead he pays me off with three of the tiniest, most tasteless . . . .

Hertz: I see, well it doesn’t sound like you got along very well . . . .

PSL: . . . dried out Delta Smelt, like eating french-fried cockroaches . . . .

Hertz: Did you say, Delta Smelt?

PSL: You’ve eaten ‘em, eh? So you catch my drift?

Hertz: But Delta Smelt are on the endangered species list. They’re stopping irrigation in California’s Central Valley because of the danger to Delta Smelt from being sucked into the piping systems . . . .

PSL: The fewer the Delta Smelt, the more environmental votes they get . . . .

Hertz: I can’t believe . . . .

PSL: Now, maybe you understand why I jumped off his lectern the other day . . . it was all just too much . . . .

Hertz: Well, there must have been something good about the experience . . . ?
PSL: Oh yeah, getting to sit in on sessions with Reid, Pelosi, Frank and Hoyer really made my day! Damn Keystone Cops . . . .

Hertz: (At this point the video-tape’s audio recording reveals only the snoring of a 96-year old man for the next twelve minutes. Hertz takes his afternoon siesta precisely at 2:45 every day . . . .)

Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,

The possibility of Obama ‘vetoing’ his Obamacare legislation because of recent discoveries from the Congressional Budget Office that it violated two of his campaign pledges about overall costs and reducing the deficit . . . now seems to be on the back-burner. Apparently the sensible notion was released as a trial balloon and was just a “tease” designed to confuse conservatives. No change is now expected. This is a perfect time to see how well President Obama came through on the fifteen most crucial promises he made about “reforming” health care in this country.

  • 1. Health care will cost less for the individual and the government. That was why the "vetoing" of Obamacare actually made sense. It has now been revealed by the CBO that it will cost much more and will not help reduce the deficit.
  • 2. Better care would result. Not according to the Congressional Budget Office and American physicians. Worse care and longer waits are the future for American patients.
  • 3. Deficits would be reduced and Obamacare would help the nation meet the challenges of the future. Sorry, the CBO shows that Obamacare will NOT pay for itself even using ten years of taxes to cover the first six years of the program's operation. It will increase deficits and the National Debt.
  • 4. It was part of his promise there would be “no new taxes on the middle-class.” However, Obamacare will begin collecting taxes on virtually everyone including the middle-class right away to pay for the program’s start in 2014.
  • 5. Abortions will NOT be paid for with Obamacare and your tax dollars. The reason that Bart Stupak and eleven other “pro-life” Democrats held out till the last 24 hours was that they could see there was no provision in the law forbidding abortion funding. Then President Obama gave Stupak a promise there would be no funding of Abortions – a promise that has no legal power. Abortion funding is still NOT prohibited in the law as passed.
  • 6. Not one dime over $900 Billion to fund it. The CBO now shows it coming in at over $1 TRillion which is what’s causing the deficit increases it will bring.
  • 7. Health Care unconscionable profits for Insurance agencies will be reduced dramatically. First of all health insurance profit margins were 3.2% last year one of the lowest profit margins of any profitable industry. Secondly, thanks to Obamacare their absolute profits wil rise at least for the foreseeable future as 30 million new customers are added to their client rolls.
  • 8. This is NOT socialized medicine. Ahem, FDR implemented 39 key agencies as part of the “New Deal" . . . but Obamacare creates almost 400 new agencies in just one monster law . . . medicine will become much more complicated and less user-friendly and, yes, it is obviously a government program now incorporating all the old agencies and 392 new ones . . . .
  • 9. We will seek bi-partisan input and support. The only thing bi-partisan was that 34 House Democrats joined the Republicans in voting against Obamacare. Obama held a shuck-and-jive bi-partisan meeting where Republican input was totally ignored though it obviously made the most sense.

Attempts to call a great deal of the most expensive medical possibilities “optional” for the elderly – rationed care is the ONLY way that Obamacare could hope to work, sort of.
  • 13. We’ll not go down that road (reconciliation) to pass the bill. That’s how they did pass it.
  • 14. We’ll make sure there’s a five-day period for public comment before the bill is signed into law. Never happened.
  • 15. We will “reform” the health care industry. They have enlarged the government and the health care bureaucracy and thrown a lot of money at the “problem.” The word “reform,” however, means to “improve” or “make better.” They clearly have NOT reformed the health care system.

Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,
