Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. — the Tuesday before Thanksgiving — didn’t get the coverage it deserved.
The Obama administration is actually pleading with people to shop around before choosing a health insurance plan.
Obama needs immigration amnesty, Ferguson, a minimum wage hike and gun control. But thats all. He doesnt need you or anything else. Especially not congress.
Former Mr Kate Perry (and current British multi-millionaire-comedian) Russell Brand devotes much of his new book and stage routine to denouncing capitalism. The book itself is titled Revolution and courageously confesses to the following: Im a big fan of Castro and Che Guevara and all their beret-wearing cigar, gun-totting, cigar-chuffing pals. They were sexy, cool, tough.
With Obamacare obviously failing to provide promised affordable health care and falling apart in the face of legal challenges and states refusal to participate, its becoming increasingly clear that President Obama has decided to make ending climate change his legacy.

liberty, Southern Democrats felt less welcome in their party, and started moving to the GOP. Except for US Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, who has had it pretty easy in the Big Easy.

Ferguson is about the failure of Barack Obama and massive unemployment among young black Americans. Ferguson is about Holder’s cowardice and refusal to identify Browns criminality as the proximate cause of his own death. And, Ferguson is about the avarice of Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson who always seem to show up just in time to collect a heavy purse of blood stained coins.
I believe the children are our future. As clich as this famous line that Whitney Houston once crooned may be, politicians across the country continue to use its sentiment on to grow government.

Lincoln is still right: a house divided against itself cannot stand. Our generation will see either revolution or revival.
