Hiding ObamaCare’s Adverse Consequences

-
Roanoke Times, 2-28-2014, Pg 1, 7: Part-time school workers see cuts.  Schools limiting workers to 20 to 30 hours per week.
-
A 700 word expose with a BIG Pg 1 Head Line and not mentioned anywhere is the reason for this worker pain and suffering:
It's  OBAMACARE Stupid!
-
The Roanoke Times demonstrates yet again an outstanding job of being Obama’s Pravda Media outlet in SouthWest Virginia!
Primary Mission:  Accent the positive and eliminate any Obama negatives!  Well Done Again!

http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2013/07/obamacare-like-chain-reaction-highway.html
-
-
And tucked well back on page 8: FED Chair Yellen: FED monitoring weaker economic data.
-
Weaker data?  Hasn’t Obama and his Pravda media been telling us how great things are now with big improvements every day?  Yet 5 years after the Recession ended – we’re being told now by the FED that we are looking at weaker economic data.
Yes and record unemployment, underemployment, highest ever food stamps and welfare.
Instead of focusing on the stimulation and empowerment of our private businesses, now Obama wants to throw lots more of our lowest paid workers onto welfare:

-
Nowhere was our sad state of affairs more on display than the pathetic Obama State of The Union address.  It is difficult to comprehend how such a limited person ever rose to be the president of this country.  And it’s even more difficult to understand how the Major Liberal Media can continue to prop him up all day, every day!  How sad is that!

Obama Abandons Afghanistan “His Good War”

-
Senator Obama railed against Bush’s conduct of the War against Radical Muslim Terrorists in Afghanistan.  Obama's position was that Bush had “outsourced” the war to the Northern Alliance and Obama declared the War in Afghanistan was “The Good War” and well worth fighting and dying for.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2013/03/obamas-good-afghanistan-war-mess.html
-
Flash forward to now;  Obama just called Karzi, the President of Afghanistan.
That’s not the bad news; the bad news is that it’s the first time they’ve talked since last June!
How can it be that the two Commanders-In-Chief of a major war effort don’t talk to each other; Like at least weekly!  It’s a War!  Our people are being hurt and killed in combat!
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/26/world/asia/obama-keeps-options-open-in-afghanistan.html?_r=1
-
This call from Obama was to Threaten Karzai With Full US Withdrawal by end of this year unless Karzai signs a “Status of Forces” Agreement now.
http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/obama-karzai-discuss-stalled-security-agreement-22664482
-
Apparently all the above is consistent with Obama’s Afghanistan experts who were stumped on the U.S. death toll and war costs during Congressional hearing.  Apparently they don’t call either!
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/dec/12/obamas-afghanistan-experts-stumped-us-death-toll-w/?page=all
-
-
-
Have we ever had a Commander-In-Chief who just doesn’t give a damn about the war effort he is responsible for and for the troops he has sent into harms way?
-
Perhaps Obama and his minions could join the Delta Airline Employees the next time one of our fallen heros arrive home:

Cold, Ice, Snow: That’s Why We Call It Winter!

-
Roanoke Times, 2-26-2014, Pg 1, 7: Winter ‘misery index’ the highest in decades; especially bad in Detroit.
-
What’s your point?  ---  Everything’s bad in Detroit!
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2013/07/detroits-economic-cancer-its-time-to.html

Indeed it’s cold BUT we’ve had much greater winter weather, and without the help of so-called man-made global warming AGW and climate change:
Ten Worst Recorded Blizzards In US

The Great Blizzard of 1888 with No “Man-Made” AGW CO2!
One of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the United States of America.

More than 400 people died from the storm and the ensuing cold, including 200 in NY City
Snowfalls of 20–60 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, NY, Mass., and Conn,
Sustained winds of more than 45 MPH produced Snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet.
Railroads were shut down

Difference In Schools In 1995 vs. Today

-
Roanoke Times 2-25-2014, Pg Va 1: Privatize teachers?
-
A Roanoke Times personality interviewing a school board member about his visions (did you imagine) of today’s schools from his 1995 perspective.
-
Not included in this dialogue are the following:
-
Did you imagine in 1995 that God would be totally expelled from schools and all school functions and activities?
-
-
-
Did you imagine in 1995 that students would be expelled for making a gun symbol with their hand-fingers?
-
Did you imagine in 1995 that students who “claim” to be transvestites can use any bathroom they choose, at any time they choose,  and that anyone who overtly-objects is in violation of state laws in California and Massachusetts?
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2013/08/public-school-bathrooms-boys-girls.html
-
Did you imagine in 1995 that our academic performance would be 25th among 34 countries in math and science?
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/23/us-students-still-lag-beh_n_1695516.html
-
Did you imagine in 1995 that school staff, who can’t give a student a Midol without a doctor’s script, can transport a student to an abortion clinic, and anyone who overtly-objects is in violation of state laws?
-
Did you imagine in 1995 that NYC would give 12,000 abortion pills to school students without parental knowledge or approval?
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2013/02/it-takes-village-to-give-12000-abortion.html
-
Did you imagine in 1995 that Teacher’s Unions would become a major inhibitor to teaching in the public schools, including shutting down schools with strikes?
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2012/09/obamas-teachers-union-on-strike.html
-
Did you imagine in 1995 that the public school systems would be in mortal fear of school choice for children in profoundly failing schools?
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2012/02/liberal-progressive-fears-of.html
-
Did you imagine in 1995 that taxpayers would be paying $15,000 per year per public school student resulting in a total of $200,000 per graduate?
-
Apparently in 1995 you were not aware of the “Hope and Change” that was coming to America!

Darn Those Businessmen Who Balk At $10 Minimum Pay

-
Roanoke Times, 2-24-2014, Pg Va 1: (BIG Heading) Owners balk at raising wages
Many people who operate small business say they would have trouble paying people at the $10.10 per hour rate proposed by Obama.
-
-
The Obama position:
Suck-it-up!  Just pay those poor exploited workers the 10 bucks and while you’re at it pay the increased taxes and ObamaCare premiums and energy costs and make sure you comply with the thousands of new regulations I’ve been signing with my “Big Pen”!
-
Anyway – you didn’t build that business – the government did – so stop calling it “your business” and just shut-up and do what I tell you to do!  This is just more of the Hope and Change I promised you!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKjPI6no5ng
-

http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2012/08/presidents-speech-taken-at-face-value.html
-
-
Somewhere in high school textbooks and in life’s reality there is a relationship between supply and demand. When things cost more people buy less of it.
Non-skilled labor is one of those supply and demand things.
-
So what Obama wants to do is take the lowest paid people in the workforce and have 30% of them laid-off and give their wages to the other 70% of the lowest paid people in the workforce.
Certainly fits right in with his Obama-plan to redistribute income!
-
The 30% laid-off will then join the millions already on food-stamps, unemployment and welfare (that’s the equality part) all of whom Obama has inducted into his Hope and Change Society!
-
Apparently it doesn’t ever occur to Obama and his minions that the key to the American economy and economic growth is stimulating businesses to grow and retain and hire workers.  Very understandable given that he’s a community organizer and never held a real job.
-
The Roanoke Times has supported Obama’s initiatives and even published a Labor Day major article in Sept 2011 to: “Give Marx a Chance”!    Apparently that’s what Obama is trying hard to achieve!
-

-

Roanoke Times, 9-4-11:
Pg Horiz 1: Give Marx a chance to save the world
Pg Virginia 1: Labor Unions responsible for all that is good
Pg 10: House (that’s the Republican’s) not likely to help Obama create jobs

Roanoke Times Totally Misses A Great VT Green Energy Opportunity

-
Roanoke Times, 2-23-2014, Pg 1, 14: Rapid expansion at VT has increased the demand for “reliable energy” to meet “future needs”
University looks at "natural gas" as alternative to coal.
-
VT the energy hog:  250,000,000 BTUs per hour and an additional 204,000,000 KWHrs in electricity!
VT is facing an “incredibly naive commitment” to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 80% below the 1990 levels by 2050!  How much will the energy requirements expand by 2050?  And why are they looking at natural gas, yet another fossile fuel, for the future?
-
The Roanoke Times Totally Missed A Green Energy Opportunity to detail right here in this very comprehensive article what the Gore-Mann-Obama-Kaine- McAuliffe plans are for cutting, by 80%,  VTs use of fossil fuels by 2050.
-
What does it take to make a green-energy “reliable energy” utility system that will satisfy VT’s voracious appetite for energy 24/7/365 without Brownouts or interruptions?
-
How many hundreds of square miles of solar panels?
How many wind towers and how many hundreds of square miles to hold them?
How many miles of new dedicated grid lines and substations?
What to do for energy storage when there’s little or no sun or wind?
-
Clearly a pump-back energy storage system like the SML-Leesville dams, but massively bigger, are required; and where would they be built? 
Clearly the New River Gap would be a prime vehicle and candidate for VT’s Green-Energy storage needs!
-

 
-
It’s not clear how one would go about getting all the required approvals, litigate all the issues and gain the consensus required.
Perhaps the best and fastest path to “doing the right green-energy thing” is to have Obama use his “pen and telephone” and designate the project as a “shovel ready” job; that should do it!
-
We are now waiting for the Roanoke Times to rectify this Missed Green Energy Opportunity and publish a sequel that outlines “the plan” to make VT a totally self-sufficient green-energy off-grid community that would prove that it can be done and Gore-Mann-Obama-Kaine- McAuliffe know how to do it!
Please include the costs and schedules and time-line!

Liberal Media OK With Federal Agents In The Editors Office (and their pants)

-
Roanoke Times, 2-22-2014, pg 4: FCC modifies news media survey after strong backlash.  Faced with an outcry, the FCC chairman said he would amend the effort to asses whether the news media were meeting the public’s “critical information needs”.
The chairman responded to the growing furor by ordering removal of question about news philosophy and editorial judgment.
-
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/02/21/fcc-backs-off-newsroom-survey-plan/?intcmp=latestnews
-
Wow!  Where to begin?
First: This blog focused a segment on this issue: Tuesday, February 11, 2014
FCC Into Media Editors Pants
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2014/02/fcc-into-media-editors-pants.html
That blog item was met with strong condemnation by a member of the liberal press informing me that this action by the federal government was perfectly OK!
My reply was: would it have been OK if Bush had initiated it?
-
Second:  How can anyone in the federal government even begin to think about invading and trespassing into the editorial and news facilities of any media in the United States of America!  And the print media is targeted!  The FCC has never had any rights to intrude into the print media!  Just more of Obama’s “pen and phone” unconstitutional actions.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2014/02/obama-railed-against-executive-power.html
 If any inquiry into the editorial functions of the media is appropriate it would be the purview of the Graduate Schools of Journalism University’s, not THE government!
-
Third: I have Googled this FCC action with ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN and cannot find any coverage or objections to this gross intrusion into their 1st Amendment rights.  Apparently they are OK with all this!  Also, the editors at the Roanoke Times have not expressed any problems with federal government agents joining their morning round-table and shadowing and questioning their reporters.  Wonder why they haven’t invited me for morning coffee?  Oh right – they won’t even print my LTE’s! They’re so fair and balanced!
-
Fourth: The only “growing furor” I can find is from FoxNews and those nasty Right-wing extremist blogs and secondary outlets.  Rather like the liberal’s coverage of most of the Obama issues – i.e.: we’re big on the bridge-lane closures, not so much on Benghazi.
-
The bottom line: The federal government doesn’t have to analyze and examine the bias and slant of the Roanoke Times.  This blog has been doing that for 9 years and the results are well documented and very clear for all to see!

Ukraine And Our 2nd Amendment And Our Pathetic Obama

-
Roanoke Times, 2-21-2014, Pg 1:  Violence escalates in Ukraine: government snipers kill scores.
-
These “government snipers” are doing the will and bidding of KGB-Putin!
-
And what a clear display of Obama’s total pathetic indifference to the Ukraine Freedom Fighters – Obama’s dynamic leadership action –
Hey Biden – Call that guy in Kiev and tell him to play nice!
Obama Watching Freedom Fighters Die Around The World
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2014/02/obama-watching-freedom-fighters-die.html
-
What clear and current and compelling example of why our Founders made citizen gun ownership and possession the 2nd of the Amendments to backup the rights of the 1st!
-

--
What an inspiring example of Christian Ministry at the Barricades for Freedom in Kiev!
-
 -

--As these Ukrainian Freedom Fighters face overwhelming force we should reflect on our Colonists and "The Shot Hear Round The World at Lexington."
We should do all we can do to support these Ukrainians who are resisting with all their might from being sucked back-in to repeat their 50 years of slavery they suffered under the Soviet Union because of the disastrous agreements made by FDR at Yalta where 50 million East-Europeans were condemned to 50 years of Soviet slavery behind the Iron Curtain.

Obama Railed Against Executive Power And Overreach

-
Obama is frustrated because he’s a sad failure in leading this Country to higher-ground and a better life for our people!  There are no better examples of his failures than the number of people on welfare and food-stamps and unemployed and underemployed!
-
The candidate who was going to bring civility and bipartisanship to Washington instead has brought divisiveness and class and race animosity and fiscal irresponsibility.
-
Like many losers in history, his frustration has turned to a level of hostile confrontation and violations of the basic premises of our Constitutional 3-CoEqual Parts of government.
-
The following links clearly define the depth of his problems which now have become major components of our Nation’s problems:

How Can Models That Can’t Predict Tomorrow’s Weather Predict Global Climate?

-
Roanoke Times, 2-19-2014, Pg 2: US forecast models woefully inaccurate:
The embarrassing dominance of the European forecast model over the two major American models was never on greater display than it was in the days leading up the Feb 12 and 13 snowstorm.
-
-
For years the disparaging computer remark was: Garbage IN = Garbage OUT !
Computer modeling is indeed totally dependent on the data and algorithms input by “modelers” who are trying to achieve some end result that can then be claimed to have validity because: “the computer says so”.
-
No place is this more evident than in the hundreds of millions of tax-payer dollars spent on the 19 US climate models that the Gore-Mann-Obama team is trying desperately to use to “prove” that man-made CO2 is causing catastrophic global warming and resulting bad climate change.
-
How can 19 computer models that are so profoundly wrong be used by the Alarmist community as the basis for their draconian projections and how can all this be accepted by the “consensus people” and the liberal media?
- 
-
-
-
 
-
-
Who is John Kerry calling “flat-earthers”?
-
-
When you don’t have good models and you don’t have compelling science and you don’t have data and facts that support your hypothesis and Mother Nature is hammering your creditability --- the only thing you can do is to intimidate and harass and call people nasty names!
-

Sunday Hunting Somewhat OK

-
Roanoke Times, 2-19-2014, Pg 1: Huge Front Page picture and story: Sunday hunting bill headed to governor (who says he will sign it).
Sunday hunting with written permission only on private land.
-
Great large picture of magnificent 8-point buck that only a really bad person would shoot!  Bambi's father -- How could you?
-
Two items come to mind:
-
  1. Opening Sunday hunting gives working people, who only have weekends to hunt, twice as much opportunity to hunt.  They deserve that opportunity.
    -
  2. Instead of an idyllic buck picture, it would have been more appropriate to show the following picture of my neighbors car which was hit by a deer that had been launched by being hit by an oncoming car.  
    And yes – people were seriously hurt!

Obama Watching Freedom Fighters Die Around The World

-

-
At least 25 killed, hundreds injured as protesters clash with police in Ukraine
http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/02/19/protesters-clash-with-police-in-ukraine-capital-as-opposition/
-
The people of the Ukraine are fighting for a choice!
The choice for this former 50-year slave of the Soviet Union is to now either join the community of the West, the EU, or to revert back to a Russian puppet.
-
Putin, the KGB thug, has coerced the President of Ukraine to choose Russian subservience over the will of the Ukrainian people!
Based on Putin’s successful military annexation of parts of Georgia, Putin will now force Ukraine back into his club.  The only delay is getting the western press out of Olympic City, only 400 miles from the blood-bath.
-
The liberal media’s reaction to the 2008 Georgia situation was to accuse Bush of sword-rattling!  Really!
Roanoke Times, 9/7/08, Pg A13: Rhetoric from the Bush administration and John McCain suggests rising tensions with Kremlin.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2008/09/who-are-bad-guys.html
-
Obama had Biden call the President of Ukraine yesterday!
That pathetic action speaks for itself!
Apparently the liberal media is pleased with that response.
How sad is that!
-
There was a time when we helped Freedom Fighters trying and dying to break the yoke of tyranny!
Apparently that’s not part of the New Hope and Change!
-
-
Obama's initiatives in the Syrian disaster has resulted in no help for the Good Freedom Fighters, Putin is now in charge, Assad is now permanently in-place and over 140,000 have died and 600,000 are refugees.
Just more Obama Hope and Change While Leading From Behind!
-
My Syria WMD policy is working as we dismantle Syria’s poison gas:
Really?
The US says only around 4% of the chemical weapons “declared” by the Syrian government has been removed.

Obama: The Water Drought Hypocrite

-
By: Zeke Miller (TIME)   President Barack Obama traveled to California Friday to highlight the state’s drought emergency at two events near Fresno, calling for shared sacrifice to help manage the state’s worst water-shortage in decades. He then spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the hospitality of some of the state’s top water hogs: desert golf courses.

John Kerry Reduced To A Nasty Bully And Name Caller

-
Obama's Secretary of State John "Ketchup" Kerry, owner of 5 residences, a yacht, and a private jet, lashes out at climate change skeptics.
In a speech in Indonesia, John Kerry called those who do not subscribe to the Gore-Mann Man-caused Global Temperature AGW Hypothesis: “Flat-Earthers”!

When you don’t have good models and you don’t have compelling science and you don’t have data and facts that support your hypothesis and Mother Nature is hammering your creditability ---  the only thing you can do is to intimidate and harass and call people nasty names!
-
Aren’t we in the middle of a movement against Bullying, starting in kindergarten?  Looks like we should start with Obama and his minions.
This behavior from the incompetent bully’s that are running our government!  How sad is that!
-
The facts are simple – we don’t need the likes of Kerry to call us nasty names:
-
*  The climate is changing -- the climate has always been changing!
-
*  The multimillion dollar models cannot replicate recent or current history and therefore cannot provide believable projections into the future.
-
*  There has been no significant warming in the last 17 years.
-
*  There has been less than one (1) degree warming in the past 150 years.
-
*  Gore-Mann did not include the Medieval Warm Period, or The Little Ice Age or the massive Northern Hemisphere glacial retreat that began in 1750 in their hypothesis.
-
*  There is no correlation between atmospheric CO2 and global temperature changes since the birth of Christ (a very short time-frame in earth’s history).
-
Those who do not agree with the Gore-Mann Hypothesis include many very distinguished, honest and independent scientists and engineers including key NASA scientists and engineers and astronauts.

Tenn. Volunteers Reject Obama’s-Detroit-UAW

-
Tennessee VW workers reject Obama’s-Detroit-UAW and support “Their Right To Work”!
-
Workers at a Volkswagen factory in Tennessee have voted against union representation in a devastating defeat for the United Auto Workers union's effort to make inroads in the South.
The 712-626 vote released late Friday was surprising for many labor experts and union supporters who expected a UAW win because Volkswagen tacitly endorsed the union and even allowed organizers into the Chattanooga factory to make sales pitches.

Roanoke Times, 2-15-2014, Pg 4: Obama in California: US must rethink water as climate changes.
-
The climate is changing – the climate has always been changing!  What’s really new is the massive amount of people and agriculture in California all competing with each other and with all the others along the Colorado River.

Apparently Obama thinks that droughts just now happened because of the Gore-Mann man-made global warming AGW hypothesis;
has he not read Steinbeck?

The best quote of Obama’s trip:
"The federal government can't make it rain, but they can make it rain money," says Jeffrey Mount, a senior fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California. "
President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit the agriculturally-rich city of Fresno, California in order to help find answers to the statewide drought that has intensified the battle over who should get access to much-needed water in one of the country's largest states.

Latest New News: Obama: The Water Drought Hypocrite
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2014/02/obama-water-drought-hypocrite.html
-

A significant California water issue is the Delta Smelt  -- the endangered little bait fish that Obama’s EPA has placed above people and food.
Water Supplies Curtailed Once Again to Protect Delta Smelt
Pumping restrictions aimed at protecting Delta smelt have reduced deliveries to water agencies in the Central Valley, Southern California and San Francisco Bay Area by more than 700,000 acre-feet since Nov. 1, state officials announced Feb. 13, 2013.

Folks in the Roanoke Area shouldn’t be surprised at this malfeasance of placing bait fish above people.  Their crowning example is the $65 million dollars spent on “Riverbank Beautification” in Roanoke.  It was done under the guise of flood control but that wasn’t possible because Obama' EPA placed the log-perch and the snail-darters above people and property and safety.
Calling this “flood control” is just part of the Liberal’s utilization of Orwells “1984 Doublespeak”
