The UK Daily Mail has made a point that John “Stupid People Get Stuck In Iraq” Kerry used to wine and dine with Syrian president Assad:

But he’s not the only one.  Remember when Nancy Pelosi took a little trip to Syria in 2007 to say what wonderful people the Assad regime is?

Remember how she was harshly criticized by many on the right since she was hanging around with a dictator and giving a thug legitimacy?

Don’t worry if you forgot, the media would never remind you.

Now she wants to bomb Syria for being “outside the circle of civilized behavior”.

Are you serious?



From the Atlanta Business Chronicle:

United Parcel Service Inc. plans to remove thousands of spouses from its medical plan because they are eligible for coverage elsewhere. The Atlanta-based logistics company points to the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, as a big reason for the decision, reports Kaiser Health News.

Rising medical costs, “combined with the costs associated with the Affordable Care Act, have made it increasingly difficult to continue providing the same level of health care benefits to our employees at an affordable cost,” UPS said in a memo to employees.

According to Kaiser, UPS (NYSE: UPS) told white-collar workers two months ago that 15,000 working spouses eligible for coverage by their own employers would be excluded from the UPS plan in 2014.

Small government conservatives and libertarians were telling everyone this is what would happen.  It sucks being Cassandra.

Obamacare is just a step to destroy the private market and bring everyone into government health control, where IPABs will declare you obsolete.

The Senate is stalled temporarily, and even Harry Reid has been stymied for the time being.

Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) announced Thursday that the Senate will “take a pause” and return to consideration of gun legislation at a later date.

But they are not stopping.

“Yesterday, President Obama said it was a shameful day for the Senate, and it probably was, I agree. But we should make no mistake: This debate is not over, in fact this fight is just beginning,” Reid said on the Senate floor Thursday.

Nancy Pelosi said today:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday said passage of tougher gun controls is “inevitable,” projecting optimism less than 24 hours after the Senate voted down legislation central to President Obama’s strategy to reduce gun violence.

“It’s a matter of time,” Pelosi said Thursday during a press briefing in the Capitol. “It might be inconceivable to the NRA that this might happen; it’s inevitable to us.”

The anti-rights leftist gun-grabber movement will always push for tyranny, and will not stop.

“Something must be done, because that’s what the American people expect and what they deserve,” she said. “We’re just not taking no for an answer.”

The American people do not want tyranny.  We do not expect tyranny from their government as part of its function.  We do not deserve tyranny.  We’ve fought for freedom and do not want tyranny.

Pelosi and her anti-rights ilk will never give up, they will push to disarm us, and they do not stop.  But she will be given no for an answer.  When she refuses to take no for an answer and inflicts her whims upon us, she fully becomes a tyrant.

Andrew Wilkow today noted that a simple example of how the Second Amendment works is a metaphor with a man as the government and a woman as the people.  The woman is armed.

The man asks why the woman needs a gun, and says she shouldn’t have it.  She says “I need it so you won’t rape me”.  The man angrily assures her that he will not rape her.  “Then you will never have a problem with my gun,” answers the woman.
