Oh, good: Broke cities looking to unload expensive retirees on ObamaCare, i.e. taxpayers
Hot Air - 

Icing, meet cake.


The Obama administration’s short-term panicked desperation to avoid ObamaCare-related consequences in the 2014 midterms is only matched by their relatively longer-term panicked desperation to convince young and healthy Americans to get with the program en masse. They’re going to need a heck of a lot of people with relatively inexpensive health-insurance needs to participate in [...]

Claim: New York Dems Exploited Jewish Sabbath in Effort to Pass Pro-Choice Measure
Big Government - 

Critics are charging pro-choice Democrats in New York’s state Senate with a scheme to ram through an abortion rights amendment during the Jewish Sabbath in order to prevent Sen. Simcha Felder, a pro-life Orthodox Jew, from casting a vote.

The New York Post reports that the June 28th vote placed Felder, from Brooklyn, in a predicament in that, if he left Albany to observe Shabbat, the abortion amendment could pass; if he remained, he would be violating his religious observance.

Deputy Senate GOP leader Tom Libous said, “The Democrats were counting votes. They were waiting for Simcha to leave. They thought they were going to get away with that.”

Libous continued, “I told Simcha, ‘They’re waiting for you to leave.’ They didn’t care. It was extremely insensitive.”

Felder, a socially conservative Democrat who caucuses with Republicans, said it was indeed wrong to have a conscience issue like abortion raised on or immediately before a religious observance.

“I was told that they [the Democrats] were waiting for me to leave,” Felder said. “I was pretty dumbfounded why the vote couldn’t take place a day or two before the Sabbath.”

When the abortion issue was not up for a vote by mid-afternoon Friday, Felder decided to consult with a rabbi on how he should proceed.

“I was told because abortion is an issue of life and death, I was compelled to stay and cast a vote,” Felder stated.

When it was clear that Felder was remaining, Sen. Jeff Klein, head of the four-member Independent Democratic Caucus (IDC), brought the amendment up for a vote at 4:50 p.m.

With Felder’s “no” vote, the bill failed to attain the 32 votes needed to pass. Felder then rushed home before sundown.

The IDC and the regular Senate Democrats denied conspiring to wait for Felder to leave to bring up the vote.

Pro-life supporters said that Gov. Cuomo’s bill would have elevated abortion to a fundamental right. If passed, the bill would have required that the state not discriminate on abortion in benefits or services or anything else it provides.

Republicans in the state Senate had pledged to block the bill. Originally, Klein said that while his group supports abortion rights, it decided against allowing a vote on a bill that would fail.

The IDC introduced nine of Cuomo’s ten Women’s Equality Agenda measures, including enhanced penalties for human traffickers and increased legal damages for women who are not given equal pay. 

The abortion plank was omitted following massive opposition to the decriminalization of abortion after 24 weeks of pregnancy, when a woman’s health--not just her life--was at risk. “Health” is a vague term that was feared, by pro-life supporters, to allow abortion on demand.-

Museum of Sex Features Weiner
Big Government - 

The Museum of Sex in New York City, located at Fifth Avenue and 27th Street, is now featuring an exhibit called “Universe of Desire.” That exhibit includes text from a Facebook back-and-forth between New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner and Vegas blackjack dealer Lisa Weiss. The exchange went something like this:

            WEINER: “I hear liberal girls are very, uh, accommodating of others.”

            WEISS: “Of course! It is all about taking care of the little guy!.”

            WEINER: “Little?! Ouch. You’d be surprised how big.”

According to Weiss, the two also had a thirty minute phone sex session on one of Weiner’s congressional phones. The Museum’s curator, Sarah Forbes, says that the texts are “artifacts of sexuality.”

Experts Warn Against Latest Teen YouTube Trend: 'Condom Challenge'
Big Government - 

DETROIT (WWJ) - A new trend among teens called "The Condom Challenge" is causing concern in the medical community. The teens are literally snorting condoms and then pulling them out of their mouths. There are reports of YouTube videos showing teens participating in the challenge. 

Although local hospitals have not seen any patients as a result of the challenge, doctors are concerned that the condom ingestion could be a potential choking hazard. Beaumont Emergency Room Doctor Ammar Ali told a local reporter "You are taking a whole entire condom, which is supposed to be very withstanding and putting it down your throat and hoping that essentially it doesn't get lodged." 

Strangely enough, teen pregnancy has sky rocketed in the region since the challenge began.

Origin of a Legend
Lucianne.com - PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez Posted By: Hazymac- Mon, 08 27 2013 07:27:00 GMT A clue to the source of the enormous destructive power of the Obama administration's blunders in the Middle East is contained in Victor Hugo's novel, Ninety Three. It contains a famous chapter describing the struggle to contain a five ton carronade that has broken loose from its mountings and was now veering around the hull, smashing everything before it. It is where we get the phrase "loose cannon". (Snip) The same words, with some alterations, might be used to describe the terrible forces unleashed by the administration's attempts at proxy warfare - "leading from behind" as it is called.

Amanda Bynes tweets something unfavorable about the Obamas, is therefore a racist

Like Lindsay Lohan, except slightly more talented and not nearly as interesting. 2.These days she spends her abundant free time on Twitter, calling people ugly. Like, lots of people. All the time. It's just something she does now. This is no longer tolerable, apparently, as of this morning: (Tweets) We all know how it works. Once the accusation of racism has been made, the burden to prove otherwise is on the accused.
