Last October, Republicans wanted a continuing resolution that would fund everything but Obamacare and Democrats said, “Hell no! NOTHING is going to stop us from imposing Obamacare on the country. NOTHING.”
Rather than separating Obamacare out of the budget so we could have renewed debate, Obamacrats forced a government shutdown. Then they and their lapdog media blamed it on the stubborn, narrow-minded Republicans who wanted to fund everything right now, if we could just take a breath and TALK ABOUT Obamacare.
And then … just to make sure that the shutdown was as conspicuous and onerous as possible … Obama ordered the park service to shut everything … even scenic overlooks and open-air war memorials that are normally wide open 24-7.
Remember all that? Yeah, me too. Wanna take a stab at how much moolah the government saved by closing the parks? The answer is worse than nothing. The Interior Department just issued a report saying those 16 days of politically motivated b.s. COST taxpayers $414 million in lost revenue.
And for what? So Democrats wouldn’t have to TALK ABOUT Obamacare? Hmmm … let me think what’s happened on THAT front since October.
On Sunday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) was guest host on ABC’s This Week. When asked whether she and the other Democrat leaders had been misled by Obama’s oft-repeated statement that Americans would be able to keep their plans in the individual insurance market, Gillibrand answered, “No, we all knew.” Then, she added that the point of Obamacare was “covering things people need, like preventive care, birth control, pregnancy.”
In other words, Democrats always intended Obamacare to be a tool for engineering society and redistributing wealth. And they consider those goals so important that they were fine with whatever they had to do to make it happen, including lying, lying, and … oh yeah … lying.
Sorry, but I cannot help myself. We cannot have freedom without an unbiased media. In most oppressed countries I know of, the media was forced into dishing propaganda for the dictator du jour. Here, they chose it. And it makes me so angry, I could just spew.
Here a couple of the latest bias graphs from Media Research Center.
Obama’s reelection campaign was based on “Al Qaeda is dead”, “You can keep you insurance”, and “The economy is turning around.” You’d think the fact that Al Qaeda is very much alive, five million people have lost their insurance, and the economy still stinks would matter to the MSM. But nooooooo … what matters to the MSM is that finally, Finally, FINALLY Barack got a Real Vacation!

Gowdy questions National Park Service Director Jarvis [6:17]
Question: Why did you allow Occupy protesters to camp overnight, in direct violation of the law, for 100 days, then barricade national monuments against veterans from day one, then turn around and allow illegals to march a week later?
- Stated Answer: (squirmy weaseling)
- Real Answer: Obama told me to.

I linked https://polination.wordpress.com/2013/10/15/taking-the-moral-high-ground/ to my Facebook and a gf posted this comment:
“My cousin has a friend on the [DC police] force and says they were told if they called off sick or had “blue flu” they were subject to disciplinary action…. I think oblameverybody is scared of us…”
Excerpts from report By Paul Huebl:
The Obama Administration sent out the Metropolitan DC police armed with guns, stun guns, clubs, tear gas and riot helmets to forcefully remove or arrest aging military veterans from their own monuments.
But when the veterans refused orders to disperse or to discontinue their dismantling park service barricades, the cops backed off and allowed the peaceful veteran protest to carry on.
Some will argue that the cops were outnumbered or afraid. I don’t buy that for a second. What happened was the officers recognized that their oath of office and duty was in conflict with the orders from the Whitehouse and acted accordingly.
Since DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier is a supreme Obama loyalist, we can expect heads will roll.
Now it will be incumbent upon Americans to defend and support every DC cop that refused unlawful commands to victimize our veterans under color of law.

I’ve run out of words to express my outrage and my tummy hurts. I need some warm fuzzies!
Be careful, Big Government. We may realize we actually don’t need you after all.
LOTS of tweeters remarked on how they’ve totally forgotten the government has been shut down.
