QOTD: “Now that the full court press to refute the findings of the CBO report which, as we reported, confirmed what was largely known – that as a result of Obamacare, the strapped US economy will have even fewer workers as millions will fall back on welfare state entitlements which make hard work obsolete – has failed, it is time for the propaganda to take a different track: one where not having a job, and in fact losing it due to Obamacare, is hailed as an act of nobility. Sure enough, here comes one of the administration’s favorites, the Bezos Times, with “They quit their jobs, thanks to health-care law” which does largely as its name suggests: highlights just how “enabling” and “liberating” Obamacare is for one’s life, once a person is no longer burdened by something as trivial as a job…

…One really can’t make this up – it appears that in America’s creeping transition to a socialist paradise, the new American dream is living on “Federal subsidies” (paid for by taxpayers) and government welfare…

…However, what is becoming clear is that slowly but surely, the entire process of labor and being employed is increasingly cast in a negative light: something which is not exactly surprising. At least not to our readers, because, sadly, we were once again just over a year ahead of the prevailing sentiment when, in November of 2012, we wrote “When Work Is Punished: The Tragedy Of America’s Welfare State” when we said that “for increasingly more it is now more lucrative – in the form of actual disposable income – to sit, do nothing, and collect various welfare entitlements, than to work… That was then. Now we can add Obamacare… which will further help America’s now almost extinct middle class get even more untethered and unleashed…” –Tyler Durden

QOTD: “Welcome to liberal utopia, where barriers are not erected against terrorists or illegal aliens on our nation’s borders, but rather against citizens, and where wheelchair-bound veterans enroute to honor their comrades face tighter security than terrorists enroute to murder a US Ambassador. This is where up is down, wrong is right, illegality is celebrated as progress, and where Constitutionalism is derided as racist. No longer relegated to the fever swamps of academic fancy, utopia has acquired real estate and made known its demands.” –Dave Carter

JUST PEACHY: Boehner and Company Secretly Working to Put a Stake in the Heart of the GOP Once and for All

Just hours ago, Erick Erickson — whose ear is among the closest to the group inside the Beltway — warns that the House GOP is preparing for a full-fledged surrender in the battle over the Continuing Resolution.

This is just embarrassing. The House GOP has refused to fight on Obamacare. Right now they are going through an elaborate dance routine, complete with leotards and streamers, to show everyone they are really fighting for something.

They’ve gone through so many iterations, no one is really sure what it is they are fighting for, but it is for certain they are not fighting to defund Obamacare.

stop negotiating with yourself, get into the shutdown, then dare the Democrats to refuse to continue to negotiate. Negotiating with yourselves is embarrassing.

Stand your ground, stop whittling down your proposal, and fight… Or just pass a clean CR, own the suck, stop wasting everybody’s time, and move on.

Oh, and it gets better. While everyone’s attention is diverted onto Obamacare Kabuki Theater, House leadership is still trying to pass Amnesty!

…The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, has been discussing possible legal status for the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. He’s also been working with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a fellow Virginia Republican, on a bill offering citizenship to immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children.

Reps. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, and Ted Poe, R-Texas, are working on a plan to create a visa program allowing more lower-skilled workers into the country… Goodlatte and the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Mike McCaul, R-Texas, hold out hopes for floor action by late October on a series of immigration bills that already have passed their committees.

What a bunch of freaking idiots.

And, once again, I ask the following question of the GOP establishment:



With all due respect, of course.
