Legion compares ObamaCare to golf.
Legion compares ObamaCare to golf.
"Legion" has some thoughts on our steady march to national destruction.
We live in a rather exclusive mostly white suburb that adjoins a city that's predominantly black. That includes the politics, the school system, the populace and most of the government jobs. It also explains why property taxes are so high and the city is a shell of what it once was. Those that work and contribute paying the bill for those who prefer to sit on their duffs and do nothing but take, take, take. There's something wrong with a woman who puts down her EBT beer, snuffs out her EBT cigarette, makes a call on her Obama phone, turns off her taxpayer funded flat screen, gets in her taxpayer funded Chrysler 300, drives to the grocery store and buys carts full of food with her EBT or SNAP card. You would think they'd show a little gratitude to we who pay the bill (working taxpayers), but instead they continue to hate us.This all leads me to a conversation that was going on in the snack bar at our golf course this morning. Two of us whites were sitting with a couple of really nice, taxpaying blacks. They began talking about their teen years in a local all black school. I became so disgusted that I finally had to get up and leave. Why? Because the happenings they were referring to occurred over 50 years ago. Kids coming to school with knives and guns; The frequency of "whoppings" on black kids who had visions of becoming something worthwhile; The teen pregnancies; The hatred for "uppity" white kids from other schools. How they used to steal from local merchants. And on and on. It occurred to me that very little has changed in these black communities over the past 50 years. If anything, the situation has steadily grown worse. Makes me wonder what the next 50 years will bring.The most notable differences in 2013 from then: (A) Young blacks on hard drugs. (B) The number of unwed teenage mothers is now above 60%. (C) Today's arguments most likely end in someone getting killed. (D) The number of black youths in jail. (E) The most common career choice for today's blacks is welfare. And why not? It pays better than any job they're qualified to get. In addition, our super tolerant media is most receptive to helping replace the good old American culture (that built this country) with this "new age" inner city pseudo-culture.In the 50+ years I'm talking about it seems the rapidly growing success of blacks in society has done very little if anything to persuade young blacks to achieve higher goals. To them the only paths to financial solvency is sports, entertainment, music (I'd say "rap" but there's no way you can classify that as music), crime and/or drugs. In fact most of these successful blacks are called sellouts to the white man, Uncle Tom's, etc. Education is not a "black thang" among males unless they can play football or basketball. The girls are more apt to take it seriously and complete school, even if they've become unwed mothers before they graduate.What has failed the black community in the past 50 years that has caused their conditions to worsen? There are many answers, but one thing's for sure: The Civil Rights Bill in the mid-60's pretty much destroyed the family unit in black America. Sadly, as long as they keep voting for democrats, and democrats keep expanding the "free stuff" giveaways, things aren't going to change. And who really loses in the end? That's right, future black generations...and America. Under Obama the downward slide has escalated dramatically. Just like he planned.

"Peter"has some thouughts on ObamaCare
CGI Federal (formerly American Management Systems) is a wholly owned subsidiary of CGI Group, a Canadian corporation owned by a George Sorros controlled holding company. They are new here and have NO track record in contracting with the U.S. government, yet have received more than $400,000,000, so far, for the design of the Obamacare system.
Quality Software Services received a $55,000,000 fee to subcontract the design and implementation of Obamacare. According to their CEO Bikram Bakshi, they specialize in designing healthcare systems and were brought in by CGI Federal to do the "heavy lifting" on the project. That leaves $250,000,000 or so for Sorros and his cohorts for "overseeing" the project.
What Quality Software Services actually did was "cheap Charlie" the project by re-using millions of lines of old code from other projects from as far back as the early nineties, much of which is incompatible with modern operating systems. This causes data corruption and linkage errors with other, more modern systems such as the insurance companies and state healthcare systems.
When it became obvious that the project was in serious trouble, Sorros convinced HHS Secretary Sibelius to throw another $100,000,000 his way to "fix" the problems. When that failed to get results, HHS took over "oversight" responsibilities on the project and assumed the role of general contractor, even though CGI Federal had already been paid over $400,000,000 to perform that responsibility.
HHS did not have sufficient in-house expertise to oversee such a contract, so everything went south from there. By relieving CGI Federal of the responsibility, Sibelius mitigated the government's ability to seek redress or damages from CGI Federal, thus saving Sorros' financial bacon.
The more solid linkage here is between Sorros and Obama, so the walls are going up and the principals are "unavailable" to answer questions from Congressional investigators or to appear before Congressional committees.
Remember, in politics it's ALWAYS about the money!

Tolerating “intergenerational romance” for “minor-attracted” adults is all the rage these days.
Ever hear of Kaitlyn Hunt? Over the past year or so this poor, misunderstood lesbian woman’s “anti-gay persecution” has become a cause célèbre among “gay rights” activists and other left-wing purveyors of perversion.
Despite mass rallies and online petitions signed by hundreds-of-thousands of the uber-”tolerant,” the clearly “homophobic” Florida criminal justice system has, nonetheless, convicted Ms. Hunt of multiple felonies for sexually assaulting – repeatedly – a 14-year-old girl.
Oh, sure, her minor victim allegedly “consented” to what the “Free Kate” crowd has portrayed as a harmless tryst – but, of course, by law children below the age of consent cannot consent to sex with adults. Period.
Still, the “progressive” establishment evidently felt that, for whatever reason, this was their hill to die on – this was the case that might help them realize the historical “gay rights” goal of rolling-back most, if not all, age of consent laws – statutes designed to protect children from adult sexual predators like, well, Kate.
Veteran journalist Robert Stacy McCain has covered the Hunt case extensively. In a recent piece for the American Spectator headlined “Kaitlyn Hunt is guilty and, yes, there is a movement to ‘normalize pedophilia,’” McCain writes: “Kaitlyn Hunt is a criminal. We can state that as a Neutral Objective Fact, now that the 19-year-old former cheerleader has pleaded ‘no contest’ to multiple felonies related to her sexual affair with a minor. What remains is the question of what her plea in a Florida courtroom Thursday means for what Rush Limbaugh has called the movement to ‘normalize pedophilia.”‘
Here’s the answer: There is no question. There is categorically a movement to normalize pedophilia. I’ve witnessed it firsthand and, despite “progressive” protestations to the contrary, the “pedophile rights” movement is inexorably linked to the so-called “gay rights” movement.
Two years ago I – along with the venerable child advocate Dr. Judith Reisman – attended a Maryland conference hosted by the pedophile group B4U-ACT. Around 50 individuals were in attendance, including a number of admitted pedophiles (or “minor-attracted persons,” as they euphemistically prefer).
Also present were a few self-described “gay activists” and several supportive mental-health professionals. World renowned “sexologist” Dr. Fred Berlin of Johns Hopkins University gave the keynote address, opening with: “I want to completely support the goal of B4U-ACT.”
Here are some highlights from the conference:
You may think that such abject evil simply represents the fringe of today’s sexual “progressivism.” It doesn’t. It represents the honest.
Consider, for instance, that during Obama’s first term, the official website for the Department of Health and Human Services linked to “parenting tips” that referenced children as “sexual beings” and suggested that they should experiment with homosexuality and masturbation.
You may also recall that Mr. Obama appointed Kevin Jennings, founder of the “Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network,” or GLSEN, to the post of “safe schools czar.” The position is now defunct, ostensibly due to national outrage over Jennings’ appointment.
In keeping with the thinly veiled goals of B4U-ACT, GLSEN seems to be “running interference” for pedophiles, having tacitly advocated adult-child sex through its “recommended reading list” for kids.
This of no surprise when you consider that one of Jennings’ ideological heroes was Harry Hay, the “founding father” of homosexual activism. “One of the people that’s always inspired me is Harry Hay,” he has said glowingly.
Was Harry Hay fringe? No, not among “gay” activists. He’s an icon. Again, he was just honest. In 1983, while addressing the pedophile North American Man/Boy Love Association, or NAM/BLA, Hay said the following:
“It seems to me that in the gay community the people who should be running interference for NAM/BLA are the parents and friends of gays. Because if the parents and friends of gays are truly friends of gays, they would know from their gay kids that the relationship with an older man is precisely what 13-, 14-, and 15-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world. And they would be welcoming this, and welcoming the opportunity for young gay kids to have the kind of experience that they would need.”
If he were alive today, Harry Hay would likely have led the movement to “free Kate.”
And by “free Kate,” he would have meant – and they actually mean – “free us.”
And by “free us,” of course, what they really mean is “free children.”

"Peter" has some thoughts on Liberalism.
It is the tragedy and travesty of our time that there is no other word in common usage for this evil ideology, that they high-jacked the BEST word in political philosophy to come along in the past 300 years and applied it to the WORST ideology ever.
The thinkers and writers who gave us the Scottish Enlightenment were LIBERALS. The founding fathers of this country, who put that ideology into practice, were LIBERALS. Jefferson, Madison, Washington, Franklin, Adams, Hamilton, etc., were LIBERALS. The ideology that they fought for, the ideology that has inspired similar revolutions against tyranny all over the world, the ideology of LIBERTY, was what we used to call LIBERALISM.
But today we have no choice but to use that formerly sacred word as the label for its exact OPPOSITE.
We all should stop using that word in that way. A more correct name for that evil ideology is PROGRESSIVISM, which is the arrogant notion that society "progresses" from individual liberty, individual rights and individual responsibility to collectivism, group rights and "social justice." THAT is the path to totalitarian dictatorship, whether you call it the welfare state, the mixed economy, fascism, socialism or communism.
There is nothing "liberal" about that path or the intermediate stops along the way to its ultimate end.
I recently saw a better definition for Liberalism: Moochers electing looters to steal from producers.
