Ok, let's start off with a politician who's really full of crap

At the meeting, Rep. Al Baldasaro, R-Londonderry, said the New Hampshire Budget Office estimated the health care bill would cost the state $1.2 billion in Medicaid expenses over the next 10 years.

Shea-Porter said the bill would be funded, in part, by savings from the preventative care and by taxing the top 2 percent of income earners
Yeah. And the gold-pooping unicorn will be running through my front yard tomorrow morning.

Remember the way Congress exempted itself from Obamacare? Specifically killing amendments that would have made Congress get rid of what they have now and use Obamacare? Shea-Porter lies about it:
He went on to say that what "you are trying to force on us was not good enough for Congress."

Shea-Porter said he was misinformed.

She said Congress would be part of the same marketplace for insurance as other Americans covered by the bill in 2014.
Notice the wording: ANYTHING rather than openly say what she voted for: Congress gets to keep gold-plated health care, does NOT have to submit to Obamacare.

I'll move from other obvious bullshit(the top 2% don't have enough money to pay for this, etc.) and move to another statementlie from another National Socialist Democrat:
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) recently told an incredulous town-hall crowd that ObamaCare does not, in fact, require you to purchase health insurance.

Rep. Wasserman Schultz’s announcement came as a surprise to those of us familiar with the bill, which added to Subtitle D of the Internal Revenue Code a new Chapter 48, whose first section (Section 5000A) is titled, “REQUIREMENT TO MAINTAIN MINIMUM ESSENTIAL COVERAGE” (see p. 126; all-caps in original). Subparagraph (b)(3) even provides for “PAYMENT OF PENALTY” if you don’t comply with the “REQUIREMENT.”
Lies, lies and more lies.

Oh, and the only reason a lot of us support Israel? Solely because we hate muslims, according to one more effing idiot progressive. And the whole church/state separation idea? Completely gone according to this moron:
The whole south shifts to the Republican Party over one issue, they don’t like black people…so you have the racism thing, the fact that we’ve eradicated the separation of church and state essentially, which started I have to say when Jimmy Carter was first elected. As a Jew I noticed it — first president who talked about Jesus Christ, and that was sort of like, “whoa, presidents don’t talk about Christ!”…and now you have the modern Republican Party that has to cater to these racists and that gets me to my fundamental point, it is not that they are pro-Israel. They are anti-Muslim. They do not like Muslims. They are on the side of Israel because Israel is — they don’t like Jews that much to start out with, either — but compared to Muslims, they like Jews fine.
No time right now to search for specific examples, but I rather doubt that Carter was the first President ever to mention God, Jesus, etc.; so why such a lie?
Added: ran across this just now:
Washington concluded his address with a ringing phrase from Scripture: “Let each sit under his own vine and fig tree and let there be none to make him afraid.” (I Kings 4:25)
Hey, Rosenberg, does this count as 'starting before jimmy Carter'? As 'a President making religious references'?(no, he didn't mention God, but I think a quote from the Bible counts), you miserable bigoted little progressive bastard?

She do annoy all the right people, do she not? Even the traitor Fonda is talking her down; Palin 'worries her', she says. Got news for you, Fonda: when a treacherous bitch like you doesn't like her, that's considered a plus by most people.

So Stupak(Backstabbing Liar Democrat-MI) is retiring. As Ace says, be kind of happier to see him stomped in the election, but at least the turncoat bastard will be gone.

I think the way the Catholic Church 'dealt with' the pedophile and sex-with-underage-kids priests was a fucking disgrace, and the people involved rightly need raking over the coals; but there's been an awful lot of BS thrown about, in many cases by people trying to hurt the church in any way possible.
No formal comparative study has ever broken down child sexual abuse by denomination, and only the Catholic Church has released detailed data about its own. But based on the surveys and studies conducted by different denominations over the past 30 years, experts who study child abuse say they see little reason to conclude that sexual abuse is mostly a Catholic issue. “We don’t see the Catholic Church as a hotbed of this or a place that has a bigger problem than anyone else,” said Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. “I can tell you without hesitation that we have seen cases in many religious settings, from traveling evangelists to mainstream ministers to rabbis and others.”

Richard Trumka, you're a lying sack of suck-up-to-Obama-and-progressives union shit.

I'll finish this with some law enforcement weenies in northern Virginia who really don't want the peasants to know what they've been doing:
There exists dash-cam video of Masters' shooting. There are also police interviews of other witnesses, and the police report itself. But the public and the press are as unlikely to see any of those as they are to learn the officer’s name. That's because the Fairfax County Police Department—along with the neighboring municipal police departments of Arlington and Alexandria—are among the most secretive, least transparent law enforcement agencies in the country. And local political leaders don't seem particularly concerned about it.

Fairfax County hasn't charged a police officer for an on-duty shooting in 70 years. Perhaps that's because no officer there has ever merited charges through a use of force. But it could also be because local cops and prosecutors have too cozy a relationship. The point is, we don't know. Fairfax police have cut off inquiry and second-guessing by simply denying public access to any relevant information.
In a state with comparatively favorable open records laws (the professional journalism association Investigative Reporters and Editors ranks Virginia the fifth most transparent in the country), the police departments in Fairfax, Arlington, and Alexandria have managed get away with interpreting that law in a way that allows them to remain almost completely opaque.

"Part of my daily routine when I worked in Florida was to drive to the police station and get a copy of the previous day's incident reports," Pope told me in a phone interview. "I was just dumbfounded when I started working in Virginia. They rejected all of them." The police agencies even rejected requests for incident reports about arrests for which the same department had put out a press release.

Well, if I was misusing SWAT teams the way these clowns have been, and otherwise crapping on the people who pay the bills, I might not be wild about opening up either. Which means these records NEED to be opened up.

An applicable quote from "the Truth", by Terry Pratchett:

"My motives, as ever, are entirely transparent."
Hughnon reflected that 'entirely transparent' meant either that you could see right through them or that you couldn't see them at all.

Side note, I'm a contractor overseas (Kuwait), but I generally live in Tulsa. Your blog makes me miss Oklahoma weather.
