House Passes Bill to Repeal Obamacare:
This week, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor proudly announced the calendar for the new Congress in 2013. Working days for the entire year total 126, leaving 239 days off. This includes virtually the whole month of August, two weeks around Easter/Passover, not a single five-day work week and (God forbid) no weekends.
By the end of next week, the Obama administration will no longer be able to borrow money to fund government operations because Congress has only agreed to extend the government’s borrowing authority until May 19. While he has smartly expressed his preference that the most liquid bond market in the world “not default,”, Speaker Boehner will take to the lectern this morning at 1045ET to discuss the upcoming “debt prioritization” bill. As Reuters notes, House Republicans are expected to pass the bill today that would require the Obama administration to prioritize government debt payments and retirement benefits if Congress fails to reach a deal to raise the U.S. debt ceiling. The legislation is not expected to go anywhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate and the White House has said it will veto the bill, but what is essentially a tactical maneuver will allow the Republicans, who control the House, to argue they have done their best to avoid a potential U.S. credit default. We are sure the M.A.D. defense card will be played at least once…
Congressional leaders in both parties are engaged in high-level, confidential talks about exempting lawmakers and Capitol Hill aides from the insurance exchanges they are mandated to join as part of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, sources in both parties said. The talks — which involve Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.),…
“Just after 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, the Senate did it again. By a vote of 98-0 (two senators abstained) lawmakers in the upper chamber approved the Fiscal Year 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Not a single senator objected to the passage once again of a law that purports to permit the president, supported by nothing more substantial than his own belief that the suspect poses a threat to national security, to deploy the U.S. military to arrest an American living in America.”
ABC’s Diane Sawyer talks to Bob Woodward about his new book inside last summer’s debt ceiling crisis.
“It’s so serious that they couldn’t tell the world how bad it was at the time.”
Good interview; in it, you learn about Boehner’s chain-smoking and the seriousness of the issues Obama faced with the debt ceiling situation.
If you are cruising on the internet, and see some of your favorite internet sites blacked out, it’s due to PIPA and SOPA, and no those are not European girls, you dated on your backpacking trip through Europe.
If you go to Craigslist wait about 5-10 seconds and there will be a continue to the website button, Wikipedia is a little harder, is you use that site for research. When going to Wikipedia, hit the escape key once the page loads, this will stop the page from loading to the black page.
For those that don’t know Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) is a congressional bill waiting on the floor of congress, waiting to be passed. To sum up what the bill is:
This bill turns us all into criminals. If it passes, then you either stop using the Internet, or you simply hope that you never end up in the crosshairs, because if you’re targeted, you will be destroyed by this bill. You don’t have to be a big, mean, nasty criminal — common Internet usage is effectively criminalized under this law. This bill will kill American innovation and development of the Internet, as it will become too risky to do anything of value. It is toxic and dangerous, and should not, under any circumstances, be supported.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national survey finds that just five percent (5%) of Likely Voters rate the job Congress is doing as good or excellent. that is a 95% disapproval rating. Wow just five measly percent , People wanting the “U.S. to go communist” received an 11 percent approval rating, and the crooked banks netted 23 percent and remember the BP oil spill, well even that received a shocking 16 percent approval rating. Now lets also toss in a recent Gallup poll found that 11 percent of people found polygamy “morally acceptable.” Additionally, 30 percent of Americans expressed approval of pornography.
If you had a business, and while running that business, you had only a 5% customer approval rating, then they fire you, CEO’s would change, board members would be gone, heads of departments, would be swapped, or you would close down. People are actually starting to believe that the Government, can’t get shit down anymore.
We would like to thank all our readers, for our 99% approval rating, we would of had 100%, but our mom, thinks we say fuck too fucking much.
On Tuesday, voters overwhelming told America, that it did not mind or care about Net Neutrality, ask your average voter what Net Neutrality is and most had no clue what the hell you might be talking about.
SaveTheInternet.com accuses cable and telecommunications companies of wanting “to be Internet gatekeepers, deciding which Web sites go fast or slow and which won’t load at all”. According to SaveTheInternet.com these companies want to “tax content providers to guarantee speedy delivery of their data … to discriminate in favor of their own search engines, Internet phone services, and streaming video — while slowing down or blocking their competitors.

You would think that maybe being a clown would hinder your serious bid for Congress, or even the fact that your illiterate would shy away voters, but the clown know as Tiririca, which means “Grumpy” in Portuguese, has won his bid in the Brazilian Congress, by a land slide. Campaigning on “It can’t get any worse.” has been the battle cry many in Brazil seem to believe in.
Having won more than double the amount of votes of his opponent, and surviving a last-minute attempt at getting him thrown out for being illiterate, heck that’s what you got congressional aides for, to read all those laws trying to get passed and budget proposals, Silva said, he would do nothing more then to just report to the people what the others in Congress actually do, if anything.
Having taken a que from another clown, Silva feels more then qualified.
“What’s the worst that could happen?”
