You wonder if Vladimir Putin really thinks the world is so stupid as to believe him that there are no Russian troops in the Ukraine.
People want to know why I say: I Hate Barack Obama. They might ask you the same thing.
How about 500,000 jobs. That’s the number of jobs that will be lost if he pushes through the increase in the minimum wage. That’s not my number, that’s the Congressional Budget Office. That’s a non partisan office. They have no agenda.
U.S. CBO projects job losses with minimum wage increase
Tue, Feb 18 2014
WASHINGTON, Feb 18 (Reuters) – Raising the U.S. federal minimum wage to $10.10, as President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress are proposing, could result in about 500,000 jobs being lost by late 2016, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated on Tuesday.
The non-partisan CBO also said that increasing the hourly wage could reduce U.S. budget deficits by a small amount for several years, but then increase them slightly in later years.
The current minimum wage is $7.25 an hour.
So those 500,000 jobs are the most recent thing. Here’s an ABC report from February 7, 2014. Want to be an ambassador? Raise $500,000 for Obama’s re-election campaign. That’s how you get an ambassador to Argentina who’s never been to Argentina. An ambassador to Norway without ever visiting Norway?
…the magic number, [David] is $500,000 or so it seems. More than half of the non-career ambassadors nominated by president Obama gave at least that much to his re-election campaign. Now it’s important to point out that all presidents do that, but President Obama has done more…more appointees to political supporters than Bush or Clinton.
A full 37% of his ambassadors are political appointees. So, the next time someone asks you for one good reason they should say, I hate Barack Obama. Say, how about 1 million reasons?
Are you afraid your mouth will be full when someone asks you what you think of Barack Obama? Perhaps you’ll be enjoying a beverage or a snack when you hear someone say, “I hate Barack Obama!” and you just want to shout I hate Barack Obama, too! Or Obama Sucks! Or Barack Obama is the Worst President Ever!
No problem. That is why t-shirts were invented. Specifically, that is why Anti Obama T-Shirts were invented. Here are just a few of the Anti Obama t-shirts available at PartyCrasherTshirts.com, your home for the best Conservative T-shirts.
I guess the real Bill Clinton bowed out when he heard it was only a simulated encounter.

4 Ways Ronald Reagan Was A Total Bad Ass
by Frank Benlin
Happy 103rd birthday Mr. President!
Great President, or Greatest President?
A lot of people today want to pretend that Ronald Reagan was not one of, if not the greatest President of modern times.
I guess they don’t remember that Carter’s 12.5% inflation rate dropped to 4.4% by the time Reagan left office eight years later. Or when he nominated the first female justice to the Supreme Court. Or the time he ended the Cold War and got them to tear down the Berlin Wall. But those are just examples of how he was a great President.
Here are 4 ways in which he was also a total bad ass.
Way #1: 31 Flavors vs. 77 Lives
When Barack Obama was in high school, his first job was as an ice cream scooper at a Honolulu Baskin-Robbins.
I’m sure if it was up to him, young Barry would have just given all of the store’s ice cream away and then taken all of the credit for it. Part of his duties were almost certainly to memorize all 31 flavors including such classics like vanilla burnt almond and banana nut fudge.
Young Ronald Reagan’s first job also involved scooping. Scooping people from the jaws of death, that is. Ronald Reagan’s first job was as a life guard on the Rock River where over the course of six years he performed 77 rescues.
Way #2: Ronald Reagan chose his country over his career.
A lot of people like to make fun of Reagan’s film career. They point at pictures like this:
In spite of the fact, he made it look cool. Some people claim Ronald Reagan would have been in Casablanca. That he was first choice for the male lead. This is simply not true.
Here’s a picture of Ronald Reagan during his actual military service during World War II.
Which almost didn’t happen. Why? Because when Reagan took his first physical exam, he was not accepted for active duty.
That’s right. He was not accepted for active duty due to eyesight difficulties.
So what did Reagan do? Did he go back to Hollywood where this so called “B” movie actor had just finished starring in Kings Row, which went on to be nominated for 3 Academy Awards?
No. He went back.
He was given another exam, which he passed. He then spent 4 years in the service and his acting career never recovered.
Way #3: How about a million reasons?
Reagan endorsed the campaign of conservative presidential contender Barry Goldwater in 1964. He gave this, his“A Time For Choosing” speech, which later became known as “The Speech”. It is one of the greatest speeches of all time. Here it is.
“The Speech” raised $1 million for Goldwater’s campaign.
Speaking of a million. Reagan defeated incumbent Democratic Gov. Pat Brown in the 1966 election in California. The landslide victory was by one million votes, unheard of in just one state.
4. Ronald Reagan never had to pretend to be a real man.
(But when other men want to look tough, they pretend to be Ronald Reagan.)
Some guys are always trying to “look tough”.
There was this guy.
or of course this guy
You know who didn’t?
Which brings us, of course, to this guy…
Yes, Patrick Swayze is bet known for his roles in Dirty Dancing and Ghost, but don’t forget that Patrick Swayze was also a total bad ass in movies like The Outsiders and Red Dawn.
In fact, in the 1989 movie Road House, Swayze’s character James “pain don’t hurt” Dalton rips a guy’s throat out… with his bare hands.
So, where do you go from there? 1991’s Point Break. When Swayze’s character isn’t extreme surfing giant waves at midnight or jumping out of airplanes he’s a shot gun wielding bank robber dressed as you guessed it, Ronald Reagan.
Check out the classic scene below and notice how the guy in the Jimmy Carter mask keeps telling Nixon they have to run away while Swayze as Reagan is busy… making his own flame thrower.
Reagan famously said:
Whatever else history may say about me when I’m gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts. My dream is that you will travel the road ahead with liberty’s lamp guiding your steps and opportunity’s arm steadying your way.
I hope you enjoyed the article.

There are a couple more fun facts after the jump.
More fun Reagan facts:
Reagan Emceed the first PATSY Awards show (1951) where Francis the Talking Mule was the very first winner. PATSY is an acronym for: Picture Animal Top Star of the Year.
After his presidency he and Nancy Reagan moved to 668 St. Cloud Road in Bel Air, California which Ronald lived in until his death. The house is down the street from 805 St. Cloud Road, the house used in the TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
While President of the USA, his Secret Service codename was “Rawhide”. Al Gore’s Secret Service codename was “Sawhorse”.
From the Fox News Bill O’Reilly interview
President Obama, in an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, tried to put behind him the scandals that have hung over his second term, suggesting his administration did not mislead the public on the Benghazi attack and going so far as to say the IRS targeting scandal had “not even a smidgen of corruption.”
Obama addressed concerns over Benghazi, the launch of HealthCare.gov and the IRS, during the interview Sunday before the Super Bowl. He adamantly rejected the suggestion that the IRS was used for political purposes by singling out Tea Party groups seeking tax exemption.
“That’s not what happened,” he said. Rather, he said, IRS officials were confused about how to implement the law governing those kinds of tax-exempt groups.
“There were some bone-headed decisions,” Obama conceded.
But when asked whether corruption, or mass corruption, was at play, he responded: “Not even mass corruption — not even a smidgen of corruption.”
He acknowledged that then-IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman had been to the White House more than 100 times but said he couldn’t recall speaking to him on any of those occasions.
Obama also downplayed the controversy over how the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks were described by the administration.
He said he considers any such strike an act of terror and that he was told by then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta at the time only that it was an “attack” — and that the more important issue is whether security lapses have now been fixed.
“All of the security precautions that needed to be taken didn’t happen,” the president said. “The key is that we’ve implemented the reforms that have been recommended.”
He also said his administration didn’t try to “hide the ball” regarding the attacks, in which four Americans were killed including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
“We revealed to the American people exactly what we understood at the time,” the president said.
Obama also claimed that the attackers were made up of a mix of people, some affiliated with terror organizations and others who were just “troublemakers.” A recent report from the Senate Intelligence Committee, though, definitively declared that individuals tied to Al Qaeda groups were involved.
On the rocky launch of the health care exchange system, Obama said he anticipated problems with the rollout of ObamaCare in October, particularly with the HealthCare.gov website because computer programs have glitches.
“But neither I nor anybody else anticipated the degree of problems with HealthCare.gov,” he said.
The president argued that total enrollment is now just about a month behind schedule and that young people, key to making ObamaCare work, are enrolling at a good rate.
He would not answer when asked repeatedly why he kept Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on the job.
“I try to focus not on the fumbles but on the next play,” he said
Via Fox News
The United States has agreed to send new arms to Iraq to thwart Al Qaeda-linked militants currently controlling Fallujah following a request by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, senior defense officials told Fox News.
Vice President Joe Biden spoke to the Iraqi leader on Tuesday, although White House officials suggest the weapons – artillery and assault rifles – were not the primary thrust of the conversation. The United States is also in discussions with the Iraqis to send officials to Jordan to train Iraqi security forces.
Army Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, declined to detail the immediate status of those trainers, but did confirm Maliki’s request, adding that the United States will send “several thousand” M-16 and M-4 rifles, as well as ammunition. The new weapons have been “sourced,” Warren said, and should arrive in Iraq in weeks.
Maliki also requested an additional 100 Hellfire missiles, a second U.S. defense official told Fox News. That request must be approved by Congress, however.
The United States has delivered more than $14 billion in equipment, services and training to the Iraqi military and security forces since 2005, according to Department of Defense statistics. In the past year alone, the United States delivered six C-130J aircraft and a Rapid Avenger surface-to-air missile battery. Additionally, a total of 140 M1A1 tanks have been provided between 2010 and 2012.
Earlier this month, Biden also spoke with Parliament Speaker Osama al-Nujaifi, a Sunni leader and frequent critic of Maliki’s Shiite-led government. The two discussed ways to sustain cooperation between Sunni communities and the Shiite-led government, and al-Nujaifi said he was committed to fighting terrorism, The Associated Press reports.
The Obama administration has been criticized recently by those who question whether Iraq would be better off today had the U.S. left a military presence in Iraq, as it is attempting to do in Afghanistan while it winds down its war there.
White House spokesman Jay Carney has said such violence in Iraq took place even when there were 150,000 U.S. troops there. While the United States can aide Iraqis, the war-torn country must take the lead, Carney said.
“If members (of Congress) were suggesting that there should be American troops fighting and dying in Fallujah today, they should say so,” Carney said on Jan. 6. “The president doesn’t believe that.”
