Open Forum: Tea Trolly Edition from the East Coast

cominghome

Just going with the drunk-blogging theme 🙂 Loved this photo, but I doubt Obama cares they’re coming home. I do. In my mind, I’m a better person than Broncobama for appreciating the troops. A-rooo-gah.

Anything else going on today? Bring it 😀

    We’re safe, we don’t GOP, do we? Like I told a friend, I had problems with Bush policies, but never had a problem with him personally. Obama’s a whole different political species, because I know he’s just not that into me. ME.

  4. I know I’m getting older, but DAMN they look SO young. Just babies (strong, tough babies, but still). The older we get and as their extreme youth becomes clearer to us, the MORE we should respect and value them. They have NO idea how much they may be sacrificing by their service, but we do. To put such young precious lives in harm’s way except as a last resort is horrific.

      If they don’t stop this shit soon, a lot of us are going to do our own personal “default.”

      Husband and I were talking last night about getting some land, a trailer, and making just enough income to pay the basic bills and incur little taxes. We pay roughly $200,000 – $250,000 in taxes to the federal govt every year. Because he’s successful. And I am hearing the same from lots of successful people. That it’s just not worth it anymore. Might as well check out and lay low. Kiss those hefty taxes we’ve been paying goodbye, DC.

      Keep it up, fuckers. When enough of those paying the bills start saying “Fuck this shit, why should I labor for you clamoring govt leeches?” what are they going to do? You can’t get blood from a stone. Call me when you come to your senses, and appreciate my paying your fucking bills, and stop viewing me as a goddamned endless ATM. Call me when you have your Come To Jesus moment that the gravy train is not endless. Then I might, might consider becoming a producer again.

      one of the funniest stories when my husband was bartending,
      You know how all you guys when you answer a phone in a bar and it is the guys wife standard answer is ” He is NOT here”. Well I called Joe and a new customer answered and said ” he is not here”. my answer was”then you all have one hell of a problem and must be pretty dry by now. He is the bartender now put him on the phone”

    BART workers are going to strike. Feeling bold I guess. We’ll see if that works out for them. Ha, what am I saying, it’s CA, of course they’ll get more money from the sky.

    We grew up in one of the greatest eras for music in human history. We didn’t realize what we were experiencing. Hundreds of years from now people will study what we took for granted.

  17. DeniseVB says:

    Picked up two more “fans” on our FB page, thanks guys and welcome!

    We have 56 *likeys*

    • I’m a ‘liker’ under my actual name. Btw, look into “boostin” a post once in a while. I do one for our neighborhood and we went from 200s to 300s in two months by selectively boosting 8 posts for under $5 each.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Yay you! Thanks 🙂 I know about the boosting bucks, Lola and I did that for Romney Democrats last year and did quite well. I’m just building with, hopefully, the sharing feature. I think I can get more likeys when I take the page to the Ace and tea party related “closed” groups. I think TCH can go Big in 2014, everyone loves the “Recovering Democrats” 😀

    word to the wise . never try to break up a fight between two women in a bar. My husband had to do this and one of the women had a hair extension. the other women pulled on it and it landed on my husband’s shoulder. scared the hell out of him for a minute he thought it was a rat

  19. DeniseVB says:

    Don’t they ever let the dogs outside? Why is this a problem?

    All the years we had dachshunds, never had a problem with squirrels, fox, racoons, possums or badgers. Nasty little pookums, but lovies 😀

    The Obama dogs must be real wussies or locked in the bowels of the WH only to be let out for photo ops. Porties are hunters.

    I’m watching “The Heat” tonight. It’s my first Melissa McCarthy movie.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I want to see that ! Big fan of Melissa and Sandra. It never came to my local cinema cafe, only place I can watch movies, with pizza and beer 🙂

    • angienc says:

      I loved that movie. First movie in a long time where I really did LOL.

      • same here. I was hunched over with tears coming out the eyes. Melissa is SO frickin funny.

        • angienc says:

          I had the laughing tears too! In fact, I went and saw it a 2nd time because I laughed so much the 1st time I missed a lot of stuff (it was just as funny & I laughed just as much the 2nd time too).
          My fav line of all was Melissa (to the albino):

    http://poorrichardsnews.com/post/64309797136/obamacare-levies-fines-on-non-profit-hospitals-that

    It’s one of the lesser-known provisions in the so-called “Affordable” Care Act, but it’s having a major impact on charitable hospitals. Obamacare actually fines hospitals that provide free health services to the poor.

    from Daily Caller:

    Charitable hospitals that treat uninsured Americans will be subjected to new levels of scrutiny of their nonprofit status and could face sizable new fines under Obamacare.

    A new provision in Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code, which takes effect under Obamacare, sets new standards of review and installs new financial penalties for tax-exempt charitable hospitals, which devote a minimum amount of their expenses to treat uninsured poor people. Approximately 60 percent of American hospitals are currently nonprofit.

    Charity for the uninsured is one of the factors that could discourage enrollment in Obamacare, which requires all Americans to purchase health insurance or else face new taxes themselves from the IRS.

    “It requires tax-exempt hospitals to do a community needs survey and file additional paperwork with the IRS every three years. This is to prove that the charitable hospital is still needed in their geographical area — ‘needed’ as defined by Obamacare and overseen by IRS bureaucrats,” said John Kartch, spokesman for Americans for Tax Reform.

    “Failure to comply, or to prove this continuing need, could result in the loss of the hospital’s tax-exempt status. The hospital would then become a for-profit venture, paying income tax — hence the positive revenue score” for the federal government, Kartch said. “Obamacare advocates turned over every rock to find as much tax money as possible.”

    Additionally, the rise in the number of insured Americans under Obamacare will make it more difficult for tax-exempt hospitals to continue meeting required thresholds for treating the uninsured, driving more hospitals into the for-profit category and yielding more taxable money for the federal government.

    “The requirements generally apply to any section 501(c)(3) organization that operates at least one hospital facility,” according to a “Technical Explanation” report of new Obamacare provisions prepared by the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) on March 21, 2010, the day Obamacare passed.

    Obamacare’s new requirements could slam hospitals with massive $50,000 fines if they fail to meet bureaucrats’ standards.

    read the rest

    It’s ironic isn’t it? The left’s chief complaint about the American healthcare system is that it’s “for profit,” but Obamacare will end up forcing non-profit hospitals to either go under or become for-profit institutions themselves.

    From day 1, Obamacare has not been about improving healthcare or making it more affordable. It’s been about government control. Sadly, the American people are only now beginning to find out the truth about how devastatingly unaffordable the Affordable Care Act really is.

    • mothy67 says:

      Little confused by this. Most hospitals it seems to me are a part of large University systems and are considered non profit, The only charity hospitals I know of are religious based and they have been disappearing for years, makes sense that the ACA would want to hasten their demise as Big Government is their religion, Wonder how this would effect St Judes?

    • wmcb says:

      This is another reason why the progs are insane. And dangerous. They are so far past the whole “let’s offer a little help to those who have real needs” They are now into actually encouraging and fostering govt dependence. And actively destroying any independent, private, individual acts of mercy.

      They wnat a monopoly on charity. There shall be no charity but that done through the State. All good things must come from the State.

      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Don’t push me into a choice between a massive, controlling, spending, irresponsible govt and very little govt at all. Because you won’t like my answer.

    How will the retirements for this ever growing gov’t be funded?

    Speaking of nieces we are less than 100 pages from the end of the last Harry Potter book, What a wonderful experience that was, So many opportunities to talk. She is of course going as Hermione for Halloween. I’ll take that. Beats princesses. Wanted to read Jane Eyre next but don’t want to push my luck. Thinking maybe Watership Down. She is only seven and reads everyday on her own. But I treasure asking her questions about what we’ve read and witnessing her make connections.

    • votermom says:

      I remember you posting about you reading the HP books together – how old was she when you started – 5?
      So wonderful that you’re finishing the whole set already!
      Watership Down – personally that book gave me nightmares when I was a kid, but that might just be me.
      You & her might like the Little House on the Prairie books. Schools don’t really teach about that period anymore and it’s a totally different world than what we have today.
