Some amusing images regarding ObamaCare, as the law has come to be known.
This first one was more relevant a few weeks ago, as people are (finally) able to access the site, although the geniuses who built it seem to have neglected the payment mechanism.

And let us not forget who to assign blame to in the months to come-they both insisted that the buck stops with them!

This one truly cracked me up...

....but this one is actually a little frightening...

We deserve what we get-Obama sold us a health care paradise with lots of free perks and lower costs, and shame on us-we drank the Kool Aid.

In 2014 we'll start paying the piper...

12 DAYS OF OBAMACARE on Huckabee

Unrelated to the above video-why do athiests celebrate Christmas?

Do you think they don't know that the name of the holidays begins with "Christ?"

Or do they not know there are large blocks of people who believe that Christ was related to God?

Or are they hypocrites who just want presents?

I'm just sayin-I would think that if you were committed to not believing in God, you'd boycott the Christmas holiday.

Maybe athiests don't know that "Santa Claus" is short hand for Saint Nicholas...

Here's an economy discussion from an individual who has never worked in business, but only the government sector.

“It was Adam Smith, the father of free-market economics, who once said, “They who feed, clothe, and lodge the whole body of the people should have such a share of the produce of their own labor as to be themselves tolerably well fed, clothed, and lodged.”  And for those of you who don’t speak old-English -- (laughter) -- let me translate.  It means if you work hard, you should make a decent living.  (Applause.)  If you work hard, you should be able to support a family.

Now, we all know the arguments that have been used against a higher minimum wage.  Some say it actually hurts low-wage workers -- businesses will be less likely to hire them.  But there’s no solid evidence that a higher minimum wage costs jobs, and research shows it raises incomes for low-wage workers and boosts short-term economic growth.

Others argue that if we raise the minimum wage, companies will just pass those costs on to consumers. 

But a growing chorus of businesses, small and large, argue differently. “

-Barack Obama, December 4, 2013
For this post, I am willing to concede that no solid evidence exists to prove that a higher minimum wage costs jobs.
I hear arguments going both ways, but do not recall many McDonalds or WalMarts shutting their doors when the minimum wage has been raised in the past.
Of course, smaller businesses certainly may have done so, and unless they were record stores, I may not have noticed.
It is the President's second point, about the "chorus of business" who claim that they will not pass their costs on to their customers, that this post is focused on.
Setting aside the lawsuits from the shareholders of these benevolent companies that give away their profits, let me ask our Resident Kenyan one question.
Would the masterminds at the helm of these businesses be the same geniuses who needed government bailouts recently?
You see, Mr. Obama, if a business fails to pass its costs on to its customers, it finds itself in the situation of having expenses that exceed its revenue.
Kind of like if your mortgage was more than four times your weekly salary.
That is not a good position for a business to find itself in. Unlike the Federal government (the ONLY business you are familiar with), when a REAL business spends more than it takes in, it can't just print money and sell debt to China and leave a whole lot of debt for future generations to worry about.
It actually has to come up with a business plan.
And banks frown on lending money to business people who are too stupid to cover their costs.
And even a non-profit who has expenses higher than revenue will find itself in a situation known as bankruptcy.
Or for the President, who obviously is not the sharpest tool in the shed, think of them as OUT OF BUSINESS.
