11 Ways You Know You Live In A Country Run By Idiots, at theburningplatform.com. Only eleven! I’m sure we can come up with a few more. How about this:  If the incentives created by The Affordable Care Act raise the price of health care, you live in a country run by idiots.

New York Schools Drop Michelle O’s Lunch Program, by Victor Skinner, at eagnews.org. More schools are dropping FLOTUS’s school lunch program because sales are down. But in true totalitarian fashion FLOTUS and POTUS are in lock step in their attempt to force kids to eat healthier (healthier as defined by whom). Here is the money quote from the article,  “Meanwhile, lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives are considering legislation to provide exemptions from the lunch regulations for schools that are losing substantial revenue, though Michelle Obama has vowed to fight for her pet project “until the bitter end. President Obama has also promised to veto the legislation if it makes it to his desk, the Associated Press reports.”

The Myth Of Obamacare’s Affordability, by Casey Mulligan, at economicpolicyjournal.com. As I said when the Affordable Care Act was passed, “If you think health care is expensive now, just wait until it becomes affordable”.

Registration Records Are Used For Confiscating Guns. Government Retroactively Changing Its Mind About What Is A Legal Gun, at johnlottblogspot.com. Individuals in Government who were supposed to enforce the law, are the ones who are breaking the law.

Issa Accuses Holder Spokesman Of Attempting To Conspire With Democrats On IRS Documents, by Colby Itkowitz, at washingtonpost.com. Eric Holders communication director called GOP staffers by mistake. Thinking he was talking to Democrats, he asked how he could get materials, about the IRS targeting of conservative groups, to interested reporters, before they were sent to the Republican majority, so the agency could spin the story first. This is why I hate politics. The good of the party overrides what is good for individuals.
