Once again I'm a little depressed by the tired old face that I see,
Once again it is time to be someone, who's anyone other than me.
With the rare combination of girlish excitement and manly restraint,
I position my precious assortment of pencils and powders and paint.
So whenever I feel that my place in the world is beginning to crash,
I apply one great stroke of Mascara to my rather limp upper lash.
And I can cope again, Good God! There's hope again!
When life is a real bitch again, and my old sense of humor has up, and gone
It's time for the big switch again, I put a little more Mascara on.
When I count my crow's feet again, and tired of this perpetual marathon,
I put down the john-seat again, and put a little more Mascara on.
And ev'rything's sparkle dust, bugle beads, ostrich plums,
When it's a beaded lash that you look through,
'Cause when I feel glamorous, elegant, beautiful,
The world that I'm looking at's beautiful too!
When my little road has a few bumps again,
And I need something level to lean upon,
I put on my sling pumps again,
And wham! This ugly duckling is a swan!

House Democrats Just Gave Obama the Middle Finger

May 9, 2014 By Matthew Burke

Nancy.Pelosi (1)

In a highly unusual and rare show of bipartisanship, 62 House Democrats joined with their Republican congressional colleagues in easily passing the American Research and Competitiveness Act (H.R. 4438), a bill Obama has promised to veto.

The bill, introduced by Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) would simplify the research and development tax credit for businesses and make it permanent. The bill easily passed on Friday 274-131, even against fierce Obama White House lobbying efforts. All but one Republican voted for the bill.

Obama, the biggest deficit spender in the history of the world, is suddenly concerned with deficit spending, saying he would veto the legislation because,“By making the R&D credit permanent without offsets, H.R. 4438 would add $156 billion to the deficit over the next 10 years.”

The R&D tax credit expired in December.

Roll Call reports that there is considerable fighting among the usually robotic Democrat House, saying House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is livid at her fellow Democrats, the over five dozen who voted in the face of Obama’s veto threat:
The defections are particularly striking because at a private meeting immediately preceding the vote, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland, Assistant Leader James E. Clyburn of South Carolina and Budget ranking member Chris Van Hollen of Maryland sharply admonished Democrats planning to vote for the bill.

Voting “yes,” they argued, sets a precedent for a half-dozen more tax extenders Republicans plan to bring to the floor without offsets, and the budget cuts needed to pay for them will ostensibly come from Democratic priorities.

Aides present at the closed-door meeting Friday said Pelosi had particularly harsh words for her colleagues inclined to defect — at one point questioning their integrity, according to a source in the meeting.

“Today’s House passage of a stronger, permanent R&D tax credit is an important step forward in increasing investment in the United States to create high-wage jobs,” the National Association of Manufacturers said in a statement.

Panera Bread CEO Rob Shaich, a Democratic donor and minimum wage supporter, recently announced that he will be replacing cashiers with computers.
Shaich, who donated $35,800 to the Obama Victory Fund, said he wanted the minimum wage raised as long as it applied equally to all, according to Tim Carney of the Washington Examiner.
My question: Will Shaich pay $10.10 an hour to the kiosks he plans to install in every Panera in America? Businessweek tells that at the coffee and sandwich shop, you’ll soon be ordering through a touch-screen kiosk. Shaich insists this won’t lead to downsizing: Panera will have fewer cashiers but more employees running the food to customers’ tables. We’ll see.
I’ve written before about companies like Costco and Walmart supporting hikes in the minimum wage, knowing this will adversely affect their smaller competitors.
they use that system in the MPX gold terminal restaurants...i pads at every table you order off of and they bring your food to you.

Okay Carol, so it's the Republicans who want to impose a new tax on premiums. But under the ACA you don't have to pay this extra tax unless you forego coverage. Republicans want to penalize people who are responsible enough to get coverage for themselves and their families but not do anything about those who want to roll the dice and hope they don't get sick or injured.
Wow! That make a whole lot of sense!
The key elements of the GOP's health care reform:

~Lowering health care premiums for families and small businesses - financing state-based reforms that lower premiums, ending junk lawsuits, and increasing competition and access to insurance products for small businesses and individuals.
~Establishing Universal Access Programs to guarantee access to affordable care for those with pre-existing conditions - expanding and reforming high-risk pools and reinsurance programs to guarantee all Americans, regardless of pre-existing conditions or past illnesses, have access to affordable care while lowering costs for all Americans.
~Ending costly junk lawsuits and curb defensive medicine by enacting medical liability reforms.
~Preventing insurers from unjustly cancelling a policy or instituting lifetime spending caps making it illegal for an insurance company to deny coverage to someone with prior coverage on the basis of a pre-existing condition and prohibiting insurance plans from instituting lifetime spending limits.
~Encouraging Small Business Health Plans giving small businesses the power to pool together and offer health care at lower prices, just as corporations and labor unions do.
~Encouraging innovative state programs by providing incentive payments to states that reduce premiums and the number of uninsured.
~Allowing Americans to buy insurance across state lines.
~Promoting healthier lifestyles by prevention & wellness and giving employers greater flexibility to financially reward employees who adopt healthier lifestyles.
~Enhancing Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) creating new incentives to save for future and long-term care needs to use HSAs to pay premiums.

GOP Hypocrisy: Outraged Over Benghazi, Silent on Iraq

The creation of a House committee to study the attack on Benghazi raises the troubling question of why Congress has never bothewred to scrutinize to the invasion of Iraq.

When I heard that the House of Representatives has established a select committee to investigate the attack on Benghazi that left several Americans dead in 2012, I couldn't help but wonder what these same legislators might have done had Barack Obama been president in 2003, and had the audacity of George W. Bush to attack a sovereign country that had no relevant connection to the 9/11 attacks with the result that nearly 5,000 Americans and well over 100,000 Iraqi civilians (many of them women and children) perished. Had Obama’s war in Iraq also cost American taxpayers $1.7 trillion, with another $490 in veteran expenses (thus far)—with a total cost of $6 trillion projected—I have no doubt that a select committee would long ago have sent him to the Hague for trial as a war criminal.

It’s sad to think how in our fury over Benghazi we’ve almost forgotten a recent war that destroyed so many families, nearly bankrupted this country (and may yet), and led to a hugely destabilized Iraq that no longer serves as a buffer to Iran. Needless to say, this terrible war was pursued under false pretenses, with huge amounts of government corruption—Houston-based company KBR alone (a spinoff from Halliburton, where Dick Cheney was chairman and CEO before becoming vice president) racked up charges of nearly $40 billion during the war, making it (by far) the winner in the Iraq sweepstakes. In most banana republics, this would be cause for serious investigation; but not so much here, where our politicians (or their friends) are allowed to profit from armed invasions. Can it possibly be so that the U.S. Congress has ignored such obvious corruption while investigating over and over whether Susan Rice was given some edited “talking points” on Benghazi? Really?

This is an absurd argument, because Barack's ACA has not created any significant increase in the number of insured. Time for idiots like you to declare victory for the ACA and pivot to proclaiming the need for the real objective, a National Health System, before Barack leaves office.

No we Democrats prefer that businesses pay for their own research and development.
We prefer that businesses get off the public dole
we prefer that oil companies that make billions in profits stop getting tax breaks and tax subsidies
we prefer that large corporate farms stop being paid not to grow crops
we prefer that the market decide the price of farm products by putting an end to communistic farm subsidies.

we prefer an end to corporate welfare
