There’s not a single one of us reading this post who hasn’t told something that wasn’t true, a lie. We’ve lied to get out of things that we didn’t want to do. We’ve lied because we didn’t want to hurt someone’s feelings. We’ve lied to make someone feel better. We’ve lied because we fell down on our responsibilities. The list goes on. How long can anyone of us go without lying? I’ve lied about my age, about my weight, about my income, about job situations, etc.

You may say to me, “Nancy, if you’ve lied about the above things, I can’t trust a thing you might say.” Then I might say to you, “I suppose you’ve never told a lie?” If you reply no, you’ve just told a lie.

For most of us, our lies or untruths are told because of a situation that we find ourselves in. For example, you’re boss asks you how far along you are on a project. You tell him you are farther along than you actually are. Then you put in a few extra hours at home that night or during the following weekend to catch up because you don’t want him or her to find out that you lied in the first place. We’ve all told friends that we liked what they were wearing when deep inside we thought their outfit was hideous.

The point that I’m making is that for most of us, that lie is told as a reaction. If the boss had not asked how far I was along on the project, I wouldn’t have told him or her a lie. If I actually enjoyed a meal at a friend’s house, I would have told the friend that the dinner was good and it wouldn’t have been a lie.

Lies like I discussed above are told without deliberation. They’re automatic.

Unfortunately, many lies are created and told for malicious purposes. For example, a liberal friend told me that hundreds of thousands of black voters were not allowed to vote in the 2000 presidential election in the state of Florida. When I asked her to prove it by getting me a list of 50 names of folks who weren’t allowed to vote, she couldn’t do it. She flat-out lied. There were not hundreds of thousands of black voters in Florida who weren’t allowed to vote in the election.

This morning, a lot of us are making efforts to digest the Senate Intelligence Committee report that Senator Diane Feinstein read from on the Senate floor yesterday. What’s true and what’s not? I suspect a substantial part of the report is nothing but lies. And we do have to keep in mind that Senate staffers wrote this report after the CIA refused to cooperate with them because the CIA didn’t trust them to keep this a secret.

The timing of the reading of the report’s executive summary by Senator Feinstein is certainly suspect. The report was released and read on the same day that Jonathan Gruber is testifying before a House committee on the things he said about the American people and Obamacare. Was this a coincidence? I don’t think so. Gruber’s testimony was sure to be damning, so the Senate decides to bring out this report that’s sure to have the American citizens reeling and give the far left loons something to ballyhoo about until Jonathan Gruber and his testimony is forgotten.

Now that the details of this report have been made public, many news sources have reported that the United States has enhanced precautions to protect Americans and U.S. facilities abroad for possible violent responses.

Now, isn’t this just dandy? A report is created that makes the United States look bad and its executive summary is read on the Senate floor, resulting in an increased danger to Americans abroad. And to top it off, the report was released on the very same day that Jonathan Gruber, alleged architect of Obamacare was to testify on Capitol Hill about his comments to the effect that the American people are stupid and therefore, transparency with regard to Obamacare should be kept at a minimum.

What else is in store for us? It gets worse every day.



In January 2008, before he was elected president, the current president of the United States indicated that as a result of his proposed cap and trade policy that utility rates would necessarily skyrocket. Since that time he has indicated that he wants energy prices to increase so we, the American people, will use less energy. He wants automobiles to be built that will be more energy efficient, even if they are unsafe to drive and it takes forever to travel from point A to point B in one of them. He wants to discontinue the use of fossil fuels, natural gas, and coal in favor of green energy, which has really not proven that it can do the job. Can you imagine what would have happened if a Republican president had said the same thing?

The worst thing that our government has wrought upon the American people is Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act. I have always said that if this country ever allowed socialized medicine; that would be the beginning of the end of our country. With the Jonathan Gruber tapes coming out, it’s obvious that the administration knew that Obamacare would be bad for the American people. Health insurance premiums would rise and deductibles would go up. Also, the promise made by the current president indicating that if you liked your plan, you could keep you plan turned out to be a bold-faced lie. The current president and his henchmen knew this was bad for the American people, but still pulled out all the stops to get it passed.

Now the head of state and his or her administration is supposed to promote policies that are for the good of the citizens, especially in a democratically ruled nation where leaders are elected. Obamacare is not good for the majority of U.S. citizens. Many are seeing their premiums and deductibles rise dramatically and the quality of care they are receiving dropping dramatically.

Now, the current president is indicating that he will sign an executive order distributing 5 million work permits to illegal aliens already in this country. According to dailycaller.com, this will create a new inflow of college graduates seeking prestigious jobs and high salaries. This again is not good for the American people, especially the low-wage earners.

I’ve said this in previous posts and I’ll say it again. And if it takes it, I’ll say it many more times…this president wants to hurt the American people, this president hates the United States of America, this president wants you to suffer, then maybe after suffering, you will accept his policies and become beholden to him. That’s what this president and his Democrat henchmen want. They don’t want you to have a good life.

As Jonathan Gruber has indicated, this country’s leaders think you’re stupid. They think you exist for their benefit, not the other way around. Everyone who was responsible for cramming Obamacare down our throats knew it was a bad thing for the majority of American citizens. They knew the lies they told were lies.

This president and the Democrats want to destroy the United States of America as we know it. They want every single man, woman, and child to be dependent upon government for livelihood. They want everyone to live in cookie cutter houses, to drive cookie cutter cars, to wear the same slovenly outfits that are worn in other socialist countries, to eat what they want you to eat, and so forth. They don’t want everyone to have access to quality healthcare; they just want to control every aspect of your life. And the sooner you realize and accept this, the sooner we can put a stop to their evil ways.



There’s so much going on in the political world at this point in history. There are so many things to write about and I could easily spend all of my time writing political blog posts, but I do have other priorities with respect to the next couple of weeks of my life. Since I write about what I want to write about, I’ve chosen to write about the latest developments in Obamacare.

According to the website, hotair.com, Obamacare architect, Jonathan Gruber, who has forcefully insisted that the basis of the upcoming Supreme Court case, King vs. Burwell, was based only on a typo in the Affordable Care Act, was captured on camera insisting that the language in the ACA denying federal subsidies to states that do not elect to set up their own exchanges was by design.

Also according to Hot Air, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor later admitted that the law (Obamacare) was designed in a deceptive manner in order to promote the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office to score it in a manner conducive to passage. Gruber went on to say that the bill was written in a tortured way to make sure that the CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If the CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill would die. Gruber went on to add that lack of transparency is a huge political advantage and can be quoted as saying, “Call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass.

Of course, we’re now hearing that Gruber’s comments were at an academic conference where he claimed to be “speaking off the cuff.” He further said that he spoke inappropriately when he took credit for pulling the wool over the eyes of the American people in order to insure the passage of the Affordable Care Act.

So, Gruber is trying to do some damage control. Big Woo! When the American people were told if they liked their health insurance plan that they could keep their insurance plan, they were lied to. When the American people were told that if they liked their doctors, they could keep their doctors, they were lied to. When the American people were told that insurance premiums for the average family would go down approximately $2,500, they were lied to.

Obamacare was supposed to be great. All those pool souls who were never able to afford health insurance would now have access to quality healthcare. When ACA was signed into law, some bleeding heart liberals wept for joy. It was truly an emotional moment and a big turning point in our nation’s history. The uninsured would have insurance/access to healthcare, the American people would see their premiums drop, the deficit would be lowered, jobs would be created, and the economy would once again boom.

YEA RIGHT! A half decade later, many of us, including me are scared to death regarding the future of their healthcare. My investment portfolio has surely gone up with the rise in the stock market, but how much will my insurance premiums go up when I go off of my COBRA plan at the end of this year. Will it take the increase in my net worth just to provide myself with health insurance? I don’t know and I’m scared. And I’m sure that I’m not the only one. I’ve worked hard and I don’t feel that I should have to worry about health care. I don’t deserve any of this stress and neither do millions of Americans.

ACA was sold to us by a bunch of snake oil salesmen, also known as Democrats. We were told that this will make the quality of our lives better. This was implemented as a tool to enhance the lives of the American people. Of course, it’s none of the above.

The government is supposed to work for the American people, and as it says in the preamble of the United States constitution, promote the general welfare. The pieces legislation passed by Congress and signed into laws are supposed to make the lives of the majority of the American people better, aren’t they?

The fact that the implementers of ACA knew that they couldn’t get it passed except through secrecy, through lies, and through taking advantage of every legislative trick in the book should speak volumes to everyone that this law is poison, evil, and does not promote the general welfare of American citizens. But why would our elected officials who are supposed to be looking out for our best interests do something that’s going to hurt everyone and weaken the country as a whole? They’re supposed to be working for us, aren’t they?

The sole purpose of this law was not to enhance the lives of Americans, much less provide much needed access to healthcare for those uninsured; instead, its purpose is to further expand the federal government and increase the dependency of Americans on the federal government. With ACA, the federal government has snatched up one-sixth of the nation’s economy and nationalized it. It was never intended to enhance our lives or to provide for those poor souls who don’t have access to health care; it is about further government intrusion into our lives and taking control of as many aspects of our lives as possible.

Just like the rogue regimes of Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, China, Iran, and more; the government has intentionally harmed its citizens with the ACA and knows exactly what it’s doing. The United States of America has its own Axis of Evil, make no mistake about it. America’s Axis of Evil includes Barak Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi. There; I’ve said it. It’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Nancy Pelosi’s power has been greatly diminished and Harry Reid’s power will soon go the way of Ms. Pelosi’s. We will have Barak Obama, though. As a result, the next two years are going to be very important ones and will surely determine whether we can reverse the trends of the past six years and take our country back or whether the United States of America, land of the free and home of the brave, be only a fading memory.
