Weekend Media Dump, Surprise! Obamacare Will Cost 30% More

Soaring cost estimates prompt doubts over health care overhaul
Overruns may pose new election-year problems for Obama
11:00 PM, Mar. 2, 2012

WASHINGTON — Cost estimates for a key portion of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law have ballooned by $111 billion from last year’s budget, and a senior Republican lawmaker on Friday demanded an explanation.

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., wants to know by Monday why the estimated cost of helping millions of middle-class Americans buy health insurance has jumped by about 30 percent for an eight-year period, from 2014-2021.

Administration officials say the explanation lies in budget technicalities and that there are no significant changes in the program that would raise concerns.

The revised health care numbers, buried deep in the president’s budget, stumped lawmakers and some administration officials earlier in the week. At a congressional hearing Tuesday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who is in charge of carrying out the health care law, indicated she was unaware of the changes.

Democrat John Edwards: And This Guy Could Of Been President Of The U.S.

Edwards asks that sex tape not be destroyed

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Ahead of his federal trial involving alleged campaign finance violations, John Edwards is asking a judge to keep a sex tape involving him and his mistress from being destroyed.

In a request filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Greensboro, Edwards asks that the court issue a stay in a settlement last week about the video involving Rielle Hunter and his former aide, Andrew Young.

Hunter sued Young and his wife in 2010 over the tape and other personal items the couple claimed she abandoned in a box of trash. Hunter lived with the Youngs in 2007, while she was pregnant with Edwards’ baby.

When Conservatism Is Tried, It Always Wins

Santorum lumps McCain, Dole, H.W. Bush into losing clan of GOP moderates
Posted by
CNN Political Reporter Shannon Travis

“We want a conservative nominee because that’s our best chance of winning. Look at the races in the last 30 years, we nominated a moderate: [John] McCain, [Bob] Dole, Gerald Ford. When George [H.W.] Bush ran for re-election back in 1992, after raising taxes and increasing spending. They all ran as moderates. We all lost,” Santorum said.

“Every time we’ve run as a conservative, we’ve won,” the candidate continued. “Why? Because Americans want a choice. If it’s a difference between somebody, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, you know what, this country is going to probably going to stick with the person they know. We need to have a sharp contrast. Someone who paints a very different vision for America.”

Seems Santorum has the right idea here.

Being A Liberal Stooge & Useful Idiot: PRICELESS!

With the controversial surrounding Rush Limbaugh we thought we would offer one take on the hub bub.

Hittin’ The Hootchie
2 March 2012, 9:10 pm.

I didn’t hear it, but evidently, Rush Limbaugh said something that got a lot of folks’ knickers in a twist.

“What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her?” Limbaugh said on his radio show on Wednesday. “It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.”

Hmmm… That’s it? That’s what he said? And even Boehner is having issues? Why? Show me where what Rush said wasn’t the truth. If this broad wants us to pay for her to be able to have ‘guilt free sex’, what would you call it? Since when it is my responsibility to pay for someone like Fluke to get her hootchie on? It’s not! And what Rush said described it quite well. We pay for her to spread her legs and that would make her a slut…a prostitute, enabling her to be irresponsible for her own actions. Even the White House is making excuses for her behavior. And it makes us pimps. I don’t particularly like that idea.

“The fact that our political discourse has become debased in many ways is bad enough. It is worse when it’s directed at a private citizen who was simply expressing her views on a matter of public policy,” Carney said.

Sorry dude….she’s no longer a private citizen. She went before Congress to pretty much demand that I pay for her hootchie habits. No. It’s not my responsibility. It’s not yours either. If she wants to spread her legs for any ol’ Tom, DICK or Harry, that is her business. And SHE should be the one to pay for her ‘fun’. If she can’t afford it, cross your legs, ya dumb broad! Abstinence is the only sure fire way! People getting their panties in a wad because Rush Limbaugh spoke the truth is pretty flippin’ ridiculous! That includes the Speaker of the House, Carney, the POTUS, or anyone else who has a problem.

Cup Cake ATM Someday Near You

For anyone who’s suffered the indignity of a cupcake craving with nary a box of cake mix in sight, Sprinkles has just the thing for you.

The California bakery has installed what it calls the world’s first 24-hour cupcake dispensing machine designed to look like an ATM.

According to Los Angeles‘ local CBS News station, customers use it just like any other ATM machine on the street: insert your credit card and choose your options on the screen. But instead of cash or banking options, the machine dispenses cupcakes.

Sprinkles will load the machine with fresh cupcakes in eight flavours every few hours. Each cupcake comes individually wrapped in its own box to avoid any damage to the icing.

The machine will also offer Sprinkles-branded merchandise, cupcake mix and dog treats.

Will it also tell you how many calories it has? Does Michelle Obama know about this?

Star Spangled Banner Day, Sung By Whitney Houston (You Tube)

Star Spangled Banner Sung By Whitney Houston

Star-Spangled Banner

The Star Spangled Banner Lyrics
By Francis Scott Key 1814

Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
