President blasts media that he doesn’t have in his pocket

Looks like the Charlatan-in-Chief is up to his old tricks. After five solid years of failure, there’s a mid-term election coming, so it’s time to break out the old playbook. The president was out bad mouthing Fox News and Rush Limbaugh again recently.

Let’s see. He has ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, almost every major newspaper in the country, public education, Hollywood, ESPN, labor unions, the ABA, and countless other organizations (too numerous to continue listing), sycophantically spouting his dishonest and divisive rhetoric. He was, after all, winner of the prestigious Lie of the Year award. Yet one little cable news network and a talk radio entertainer dare to disagree, and he’s out there whining and crying like a baby. Good grief, can we get an adult in the White House instead of pajama boy?

Hopefully, the 2014 mid-terms will be a repeat of the 2010’s. Not much has changed. The economy still stinks. The Justice Department is still corrupt. The NSA is still spying on us. Fast and Furious and Benghazi are still covered up. The IRS is still targeting conservative groups. Same ol’, same ol’, business as usual. Somewhere in Rome, Nero must be rolling in his grave.

Letter about Obamacare was mostly correct, got math wrong

In Jan. 21 letter to the editor, Mike Enright’s letter concerning Obamacare was 90 percent correct. His math was not correct. If you take the amount spent and divided it by our population, each person would receive two dollars, not two million.

Also, Nevada will have twenty-thousand new Medicaid patients. The requirements to get Medicaid have been changed to allow people that can’t afford the premium increase to at least have Medicaid. What they don’t know is that when they die, the federal government will confiscate any assets they have to pay for past medical services and premiums.
