Congressman Castigates Park Ranger For The Memorial Closure He Voted For

Mark Segraves, reporting for NBC News' Washington affiliate, managed to capture the howler highlight of the Great World War II Memorial Bleat-n-Repeat -- Rep. Randy Neugebauer's (R-Tex.) Wednesday confrontation of a poor park ranger on the scene -- who was doing nothing more than her job -- blaming her for the closure he voted for and telling her that she should be ashamed of herself.

From there, Segraves reports, "a crowd of onlookers got involved," and began loudly demanding that Neugebauer lay off the park ranger, pointing out again and again that the reason everyone was in the position they were in was due to the fact that Congress very specifically put them there. Neugebauer countered that it was all really Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) fault, but that failed to impress anyone.

What's really ghastly about this is that the whole "Harry Reid shut down the government" line is a talking point. It's "messaging" -- the mostly disingenuous bilge that politicos spit in order to gain some phantom upper hand in a war of rhetoric that plays itself out in the press. It's not intended to be sincere, it's all posturing -- throwing sub-standard witticisms at a wall in the hopes that something will stick and convince people.

This is all stuff intended for an audience of reporters -- and in that setting, all is fair. But you're not actually supposed to extend "messaging" out into the world of ordinary human Americans in this fashion, and victimize park rangers with it.

What's also inane about this is that, as Segraves takes pains to point out, the park rangers deployed to the World War II Memorial, while enforcing the closure of the memorial to the general public, are also there to make sure that the Honor Flight veterans who come to the memorial get access to the site. So, by impeding her from doing her job, all Neugebauer was doing was impeding access for the Honor Flight veterans. And telling the ranger that she should be ashamed? Man, that's not a good look, and the gathered crowd made sure Neugebauer learned that the hard way.

Got to give credit to the ranger for standing her ground and doing her job with professionalism, in the face of an idiot who really needs to learn his place.

Obamacare - a sad reminder to the projected "31 million people without insurance by 2023."
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/ ...
You truly are blind.
Obamacare, as passed, was not designed to get everyone insured. But how many would be uninsured without Obama n 2023.

BTW those 31 million people include non citizens. Some include people who would qualify for medicaid but due to state laws, can't get it.

REMINDER!

FYI AMERICA - PREPARE

Truckers Convoy to D.C. Oct. 11-13

The strike, the report said, will be coordinated with an invasion of Washington.

“The protest calls for truckers to make their way to Washington, D.C., in a massive convoy in an effort to call attention to, among other things, the Benghazi cover-up, the recent attack which killed 25 members of Seal Team 6, ever rising fuel prices, and claims that 'President' Obama has engaged in treasonous crimes.”

One advocate wrote: The American People are bleeding out with no relief in sight. It is time to change the news. Let us show Our elected representatives that We are 100 percent fed up with their corruption and the blatant disregard of the Constitution that they by Oath Swear to Uphold.

Blog author Mac Slavo noted:“The corruption and need for real change in America’s government has transcended political lines. If the hundreds of thousands of truckers across America who keep our delivery systems running efficiently were to join together and stop hauling freight for even a week, the impact would be devastating and could not be ignored. There’d be no food on the shelves, no fuel at our gas stations, and no medical supplies at our pharmacies and hospitals...

Support these truckers and America - if you own a business, close the doors for those 3 days, do not shop, travel or buy gas on those 3 days unless absolutely necessary. GOD Bless!

You already admitted to being on Medicare.

Gee you just keep getting dumber and dumber. Last doctor visit I paid, cash.$45.00. For your information I am still employed and every check has a deduction for Medicare. In as much as you sit on your fanny with your hand out and do not work you would not know that a Medicare Tax deduction is noted on every check.

Profits - whats left after expenses.

I want to deduct all of my expenses & pay taxes only pay tax on my profit - what is left from my earnings after all my living expenses. I just went to town to the bank & post office & fruit stand. Lets see, 30 miles & what .35 cents a mile - Oh Wait, I drove my car that I already am depreciating & gasoline is already expensed., My bad. This is fun pretending I am a corporation.

Only the penalty attached to the mandate for failure to comply is a tax.
"Individuals have until March 31st, 2014 to go without health insurance without being assessed a penalty.
After that date, lacking health insurance will result in a tax penalty on the 2015 IRS tax forms."
What are you going to do? Lie on your income tax?(Probably wouldn't be the first time.)
Or, perhaps you are one of those whose health insurance would represent more than 8% of your income. In that case, you have nothing to worry about...you're exempt.
Granted, there is a loophole in only allowing the IRS to assess interest charges and roll over the past due amounts from year to year. However, there is little doubt that aspect of the Affordable Care Act will be amended in the future. In the meantime, amounts due will continue to accrue, WITH INTEREST calculated daily. Like I said, the IRS WILL get their money...even if they have to collect it from your heirs.

Since almost half the entire population is too "poor" to pay income tax now, who in their right mind expects this "tax" to be collected?
The bottom line is, the half of the population paying all the taxes now will have to pay more because ObamaKare is nothing more than another Marxist wealth redistribution program.
ObamaKare is nothing more than just another of the Democrats' Marxist welfare programs, and it will have the same effect as every other Marxist welfare program they ever managed to get written into law - disastrous.

Any business I ran or was in upper management that had 50 or more employees offered a top notch health insurance benefit. Obamacare would have zero on those businesses.

In fact, some of my competitors that never offered healthcare will have to pony up witch means my rates will not be higher due to covering those bills not paid by his employees.

What does this have to do with anything? Doesn't change the FACT that the IRS can, and will, assess interest on the past due tax and it will continue to accumulate year after year after year. Obviously, late payment penalties, at this time, cannot be assessed.
The IRS has no means of collecting the money, unless the taxpayer is due a refund.

You still haven't been able to find any subsidy paid to oil companies.
I see you do not deny they exist.

In the past, I posted link after link of Republicans talking about & defending oil subsidies.

So why would they do that if they didn't exist.

But hey, don't feel bad,. Its not your fault you cant make it on your own. Maybe one day you will man up & pay your own way.

More proof Obamacare is just a stepping stone to socialized medicine via single payer. It's so obvious the democrat endgame is more power, more control over the people.
