Random Round-Up 03-31

I am slowly getting back up to speed. Slowly.

In honor of courage - Brave Saudi housewife set to win Arabic X Factor after blistering attack on hardline Muslim clerics on live TV

RCP - President Obama Job Approval And Congressional Job Approval (At 18% approval rating, good luck getting re-elected jokers!)

He is the liar's liar -
History will remember how often and how adamantly President Barack Obama insisted that the socialized medicine law he signed last week would reduce the federal deficit. It will be his defining lie.

Gallup poll shows widespread skepticism on ObamaCare costs, effects "Skepticism" is too weak a word for this.

From Newsweek - The Numbers Don't Lie About how little Americans support Obamacare. "Only 21% think the new law will improve their health care, while 50% believe it will make it worse."

If the individual health insurance mandate survives court challenges, states’ rights will have withered before our eyes.
The new health care law has states and citizens lining up — but not quite in the way President Obama or Congress had hoped. Across the country, lawsuits are being filed that could have sweeping implications, not just for health care but our constitutional system. To date, 14 states have joined the stampede to the courthouse to challenge the legislation. One of the most contested issues is the so-called individual mandate under which Congress has ordered all citizens to get medical insurance or face fines. Though the federal government has the clear advantage in such litigation, these challenges should not be dismissed as baseless political maneuvering. There is a legitimate concern for many that this mandate constitutes the greatest (and perhaps the most lethal) challenge to states' rights in U.S. history.
Makes you wonder why they bothered in the first place unless they are complete and utter idiots... oh.

From The Wall Street Journal - The ObamaCare Writedowns—II. Democrats blame a vast CEO conspiracy. Technically, the dems should just look in the mirror.

From The Weekly Standard: Economics for Dummies. Nancy Pelosi’s cockamamie ideas. Really the title of this piece should have been Economics from Dummies.

Speaking of economics for dummies - Waxman Convenes the First Death Panel. The chairman is denouncing businesses for complying with the law. Also from The Wall Street Journal

ADP Says U.S. Companies Unexpectedly Cut Payrolls. Why is it always unexpected unless you've drunk the Obama Kool-Aid. Oh...

Terrific Idea - Advocates: Earmark database needed I'm not necessarily anti-earmarks per se but tracking them and knowing who got what is a VERY good idea! The more sunlight the better.

Birth of a Notion Obama throws the weight of the presidency behind a bogus poll.

SEIU scum are running amok in this administration - Unions buy their way into the White House From The Washington Examiner

From The Washington Times - Obama, who 'excluded lobbyists', has appointed 50. All his promises come with short expiration dates.

From RPC - How Much Debt Is Too Much for Voters? AND America in the Red

Glimpse of our Nanny-State Future - Pet shop owner fined £1,000 and told to wear an electronic tag... for selling a GOLDFISH to a boy aged 14
