Study: 'Cash for Clunkers' another Obama failure

From The Hill newspaper: 
A study released on Wednesday found that President Obama's Cash for Clunkers rebate system for old cars was an ineffective stimulus program.

The study, conducted by the Brookings Institution, found that the $2.85 billion Cash for Clunkers program only created 0.7 jobs for each million dollars the federal government spent.

The ratio translated to a rate of $1.4 million for each job, which the authors of the study said was a very expensive stimulus.

Tea Party Group Urges 'No' Vote on PA Supreme Court Justices

The Independence Hall Tea Party PAC based in Philadelphia is urging Pennsylvania voters to vote 'No' on retention of two Pennsylvania Supreme Court justices seeking new terms on Nov. 5.  Group Urges 'No' Vote on Retention of PA Supreme Court Justices

The reason the group opposes Ron Castille and Max Baer is their failure to implement Voter ID in Pennsylvania. The Voter ID law was passed by both chambers of the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Tom Corbett in 2012, but the Supreme Court put the law on hold for both the 2012 and 2013 election cycles while a lower court hears objections filed by Democrats and the ACLU.

Castille and Baer should face the price for interfering with the will of the people, argues the tea party group.

Here is a press release issued by the group:
The Independence Hall Tea Party PAC is urging a 'No' vote on retention of PA Supreme Court Justices Ron Castille (R) and Max Baer (D) in Tuesday's November 5, 2013 election due to their failure to uphold the Voter ID law enacted by the Pennsylvania Assembly and signed by Governor Tom Corbett (R).

"The Independence Hall Tea Party worked extremely hard to help get Voter ID passed--beginning in November 2010," said PAC President, Don Adams.

"We have contacted over 170 Tea Party and Patriot groups across Pennsylvania to ask that they join us in urging the rejection of Justices Ron Castille  and Max Baer for their role in obstructing the implementation of the Voter ID law in both the 2012 and 2013 Pennsylvania Primary and General Elections," said PAC President, Don Adams.

According to Pennsylvania law, Chief Justice Ron Castille, age 69, is required to retire from the Supreme Court upon his 70th birthday.

"The PAC is urging voters to give both justices an early retirement for thwarting the will of the people and Pennsylvania law by refusing to implement Voter ID.

"Polls consistently show that Pennsylvanians favor Voter ID by overwhelming margins.  A September 2012 Quinnipiac/NY Times/CBS Poll showed that 62% of Pennsylvanians approve the law, while 35% oppose.

Additionally, 99% of those interviewed stated that they possessed a state issued photo identification and 1% did not," said Adams.

"Despite these figures, the PA Supreme Court, with the votes of both Justices Castille and Baer, has seen fit to obstruct Voter ID implementation in four election cycles by twice remanding that a lower court review the law's merit, with specific stipulations of the high court, based on a questionable legal challenge.

"The PA Supreme Court did not even have the courage to rule on the law itself.  Instead, it is hiding behind the rulings of lower court judges.

"This is completely unacceptable behavior and the voters of Pennsylvania will have a chance to say 'No' to the Justices who said 'No' to Voter ID."

"Undoubtedly, Justices Castille and Baer will spend a small fortune on the retention vote.  We will be limited to word of mouth and free social media. 

But since 2013 is a low turnout election year, and voters, in general, are not in a good mood, we hope to prevail.

Doctors' Group Decries Obamacare 'incompetence'

Jane M. Orient, M.D., Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, issued the following statement today after HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius' testimony before a Congressional committee:
"Secretary Sebelius states that the Affordable Care Act, which can't produce a functional Web site, is going to fix the 'delivery system.' Once people get corralled into Obama-compliant health plans, doctors will be automatically made smarter, more efficient, and less costly. She herself must be Wonder Woman. One day, she says they really needed six years to do the Web site, then she claims it will be fixed in only six weeks!

"Can incompetence really be this gross? Or is the true objective being achieved? Do they really want more uninsured people, more Medicaid dependents, and the wreckage of both private insurance and private medicine?

"Obama’s supporters appear to think that there is no problem with breaking clear promises, like being able to keep your health insurance, if you can just change the meaning to 'you can't keep the insurance you like, but you'll be able to buy something we like for twice the cost.'

"If Obama can rewrite the law as he likes, why stop with delaying the employer mandate and forcing still more people into the individual mandate? Can he go all the way to single payer, all by himself?

"The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) filed suit today to challenge Obama's violation of the constitutional separation of powers by legislating from the White House."

Ron Castille, the chief justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court,  is the man most responsible for derailing Pennsylvania's redistricting plan (which allowed Democrats to win more seats in the state Legislature in 2012) and the state's new Voter ID law (which allowed Barack Obama to capture more than 100 percent of the vote in some Philadelphia precincts). Do you think Castille deserves another term on the Supreme Court? You can vote NO to retain Castille on Nov. 5.

The high cost of ObamaCare deception

John Hayward on the unraveling of Obamacare:
President Obama's Rose Garden press conference on the ObamaCare disaster featured a group of 13 human props, lined up on stage behind him to put a face on the alleged virtues of his health care scheme.  It turns out none of them had actually purchased an ObamaCare insurance plan, and only three of them had even completed the application process.

What a perfect summary of the disastrous incompetence and fundamental dishonesty of Barack Obama's "signature achievement!" Three weeks in, his gigantic political team couldn't find any actual "happy customers." They had to settle for a couple of people who look forward to maybe doing some shopping on the exchanges one of these days. They might not like what they find, assuming they can cudgel anything but a stream of error messages from the system.

Thorns to Pa. school board for throwing taxpayer money away

From the editorial page of The Pottstown Mercury:
THORNS to the Upper Perkiomen School Board for paying out an overly generous retirement package in 2012 to former schools Superintendent Tiimothy Kirby, as noted in a report to the school district by Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale. DePasquale characterized the package as “the latest example of school boards bestowing superintendents with excessive contractual benefits rather than investing the money into classroom education.” Specifically, he noted Kirby was paid for unused sick time and granted health insurance benefits for himself and his spouse above and beyond what the district paid to the Public School Employees Retirement System. The package was more than $220,000 above the already-generous pension to which retiring superintendents are entitled. Upper Perk is not alone in this habit of treating school superintendents to grandiose contracts. The job is important, to be sure, but boards don’t owe superintendents more than taxpayers can afford.

A variety of imported Greek wines and spirits, including Ouzo, an anise-flavored liqueur, are available, as well as domestic and imported beers.

While enjoying a meal in the main dining hall, visitors will be treated to Greek music by Stavros & Maria, a brother-sister duo who are also church members. 

The church’s youth dance group, Kefi, will perform traditional Greek dances wearing colorful costumes throughout the weekend. 

After a hearty meal, there’s plenty to see and do on the church grounds. The Agora (Greek market) offers packaged Greek foods and prepared dishes to go. The Kafenio (Greek coffee house) features fresh-brewed Greek-style coffee, rice pudding and pastries in a relaxed atmosphere.

Visitors can also shop for original artwork, gold jewelry and items imported from Greece in various gift rooms.
 A popular stop for all visitors is the pastry room, where you can sample baklava (almonds, butter and honey layered in flaky pastry), teelikta (walnuts, butter and honey rolled in flaky pastry); kourabiethes (butter cookies topped with powdered sugar);, koulourakia (Greek twisted butter cookie); and galaktobouriko (a filo pastry filled with custard and moistened with honey syrup).

Another Greek delicacy offered throughout the weekend is loukoumades (puffed honey balls), a warm, dough pastry topped with honey, cinnamon and chopped nuts.
Bazaar hours are noon to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Admission and parking are free. Additional parking across the street at Berks Catholic High School. The event will be held rain or shine.
The church is located at 1001 E. Wyomissing Blvd., about one mile from Business Route 222 South (also known as Lancaster Avenue).

EBT card failures cause 'complete chaos' at Walmart stores

EBT card failures cause 'complete chaos' at Walmart stores

Is Obama behind the EBT food stamp card crash?

The EBT Debit Card System, the government program for food stamps, crashes across the country on a Saturday, the busiest grocery shopping day of the week, during a government shutdown in which Obama ordered his minions to make the lives of Americans as painful as possible.

And you don't think Obama is behind the whole thing?

The initial crash was reported on Friday in 10 states, but it appears to have spread to more states Saturday. The lucrative EBT program is managed by JP Morgan Chase, a major contributor to the Obama campaign. The company blamed the problem on a computer glitch, but here we are 24 hours later and JP Morgan hasn't fixed the "glitch." Sounds a lot like the Obamacare health exchange website glitch, doesn't it?
The Electronic Benefits Transfer system managed by JP Morgan Chase crashed on Friday, leaving millions of recipients of the benefits in ten states without a way to put food on the table.
Bank officials said that the outage affected EBT recipients in Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Georgia, South Carolina, Indiana, Kentucky, Connecticut, West Virginia, Delaware. It also hit the U.S. Virgin Islands.

If you don't think Obama's fingerprints are all over this, you're probably one of those low-information voters still waiting for hope and change.

So millions of Americans who depend on the government for food can't get any groceries but we're about to turn over our health care system to the same people who run the food stamp program? What could possibly go wrong?

Public gets it: Privatize booze sales in Pennsylvania

A new poll finds that 66% of Pennsylvania residents want the state to get out of the liquor business. But Democrats and their union allies say no. They like the current state monopoly, which pays union members a lot of money to sell booze and politicians get contributions from Big Labor to prevent competition. So guess who wins again? That's right: Big labor and career politicians.

Pa. Lawmaker Wants Maximum Speed Limit Raised To 70

As a Pennsylvania resident, I wasn't aware there was a pressing need to raise the state's maximum speed limit from 65 mph to 70 mph, but Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-Jefferson) is pushing a bill to do just that.

In reality, most Pennsylvania drivers do at least 70 mph on most of the state's highways, so I'm not sure what the harm would be to raising the speed limit.

Also keep in mind that Scarnati represents one of the most rural legislative districts in Pennsylvania, one that has few police officers patrolling interstate highways, so I'm sure people are already doing a lot more than 70 mph.

On the other hand, is this really the most pressing issue facing Pennsylvania residents or is this another legislator looking for something to keep himself busy with instead of tackling real issues?

Scarnati issued the following statement regarding his proposal to increase the maximum speed limit on Pennsylvania interstate highways and the Pennsylvania Turnpike: 
Today I have circulated a co-sponsorship memo for legislation I intend to introduce which would increase the maximum speed limit on Pennsylvania interstate highways and the Pennsylvania Turnpike from 65 to 70 miles per hour. 

Increasing Pennsylvania’s maximum speed limit on interstate highways and the PA Turnpike will allow for better traffic flow and provide for greater efficiency in the delivery of goods throughout the Commonwealth.  Numerous other states have already taken the step to allow for traveling at a maximum speed of 70 MPH or more. 

Over the last two decades since Pennsylvania’s maximum speed limit was last set, our vehicles have become more technically efficient and safety standards have continued to increase.  As we move forward with this measure a significant component of the legislation will focus on ensuring necessary traffic and engineering studies are completed prior to increasing the speed limit on any stretch of highway.

Scathing #Obamacare Ad From the Heritage Foundation

Newspaper won't print opinions that dispute global warming

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but if you're a reader of the Los Angeles Times, you'll have to keep those opinions to yourself - unless you share the same views as the newspaper's far-left editorial board.

In a shocking new policy that essentially censors all opinions that differ from those of the L.A. Times liberal staff, you must accept the highly-disputed view of climate change or you don't get to have a say in the newspaper.

This is how the Times' letters editor summed up the paper's policy of rejecting all opinions that do no conform:
Simply put, I do my best to keep errors of fact off the letters page; when one does run, a correction is published. Saying "there's no sign humans have caused climate change" is not stating an opinion, it's asserting a factual inaccuracy.

This is a black eye for everyone who believes in the First Amendment. It's another shameful example of how liberals will not tolerate any dissent to their rigid believes.

In other words, freedom of the press is only reserved for those who own the press.

AP Poll: Obama Job Approval Drops To 37%

The Associated Press, a left-leaning news organization that no longer pretends to hide its political bias, conducted  one of its periodic polls of President Obama's job approval. The results? Just 37 percent of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing. So how does the AP report Obama's stunning decline in popularity? By burying the news in the eighth paragraph of the story, of course.

That's right. The wire service manages to hide the biggest news in its own poll deep inside the story. You had to wade through seven long paragraphs of superfluous information to get to the real news in the poll. That, my friends, is what is know as liberal media bias.

Check out the poll results for yourself here.

"Some holidays observed in the community that are considered by many to be secular (ex. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Valentine's Day) are viewed by others as having religious overtones. The district must always be mindful of the sensitivity of all the members of the community with regard to holidays and celebrations of a religious, cultural or secular nature. The United States Supreme Court has ruled that school districts may not endorse, prefer, favor, promote or advance any religious beliefs...."
