This isn’t a news media editing for the audience.

This is YOUR Government of The United States of America editing our allies speech.

A real shame.

White House under fire for ‘censoring’ video of French president’s speech by eliminating interpreter’s translation of the words ‘Islamist terrorism’ (but don’t worry – it’s just a ‘technical issue’!)


Healthcare Reform

When the court rules in King v. Burwell, we anticipate that it will hold the administration to the laws Congress passed, rather than the laws the administration wishes Congress had passed, and prohibit subsidies in states that opted not to set up their own exchanges, as the language in the law clearly states. Such a ruling could cause 6 million Americans to lose a subsidy they counted on, and for many the resulting insurance premiums would be unaffordable.


AP News : Obama to seek to bust limits on domestic, defense spending

“fully paid for with cuts to inefficient spending programs and closing tax loopholes,” but taxpayers will have to wait until the budget is formally released Monday to find out exactly how.


I’m for efficient operation & closing loopholes.

I’m not for increasing the budget. We need a balance budget & any additional revenue over the last 3 year average shouldn’t be spent on new or larger program.

It should be used to pay down the National debt.

Not good

President Obama plans to call for billions in tax increases on top earners – including a hike in investment tax rates — in order to fund new tax credits and other measures the White House claims will help the middle class.


I won’t see my taxes increase. I won’t see my taxes decrease.

I’m not a fan of increasing taxes. I’m also not a fan of giving out selective tax credits.

President proposes publicly funded community college for all – Nation – Omaha.com: Breaking news and local coverage from the Omaha World-Herald

The White House says details on how the president proposes to pay for the plan will come next month.

“I want to make it free,” Obama said at a community college in Tennessee, where he described such schools as a “central pathway” to the middle class. “Community college should be free for those willing to work for it because, in America, a quality education should not be a privilege that is reserved for a few,” he said.


This reminds me of other such proposals.

You need to find the money first, then build the program.

I’m for providing a post high school education to all.

But it needs to be fine in a well thought out manner.

Way. Past time to Build It

Four of the the Supreme Court members ruled that the bill is unconstitutional because it transfers power from the PSC to the governor. But that’s not a super-majority of judges, the threshold required to deem a law unconstitutional. So they vacated the lower court ruling.

That effectively would seem to punt the issue to President Obama’s administration, which has cited the Nebraska lawsuit as a reason to delay its final decision on its federal permit.


We are Way past the time to Build It

Oh Sanctions

The new measures are unlikely to make much of a difference in North Korea, which has been bombarded by sanctions for decades and has woven an obsession with self-reliance into its national psyche.

3 things to know about new US sanctions on North Korea http://m.apnews.com/ap/db_289563/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=dV7rOsv5 (from @AP)

We were discussing* these sanctions on Friday.

By discussing I mean, making fun of the sanctions. How they world literally have no effect.

The U.S.A. doesn’t even have formal diplomatic relations with U.S.A. Click to read.

It’s like an ex-girlfriend (or boyfriend) saying they don’t like something.
