The week that was
“We need more of the Office Desk and less of the Show Window in politics. Let men in office substitute the midnight oil for the limelight.”
- Calvin Coolidge
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius resigned from her post after Obamacare was a disaster. The administration is hoping for an out of sight, out of mind scenario. She might have a future marketing Zunes and New Coke. Stand by.
Lois Lerner tried to slip out the back door before anyone noticed after she failed at her job (Obama has a type, doesn’t he?) at the IRS, but Republicans said, “Not so fast,” and now might arrest her. I am all for this. She kinda reminds me of Anton Chigurh. It’s the hair?
Monday was “Equal Pay Day,” when Democrats accuse Republicans of paying women less than men. It’s a myth, and some of the greatest pay disparity actually occurs within the White House. Probably why they’re getting rid of Sebelius, Lerner, etc.
Jeb Bush got a lot of flak this week from a number of conservatives when he said illegal immigration is “an act of love.” Chillax, guys. Illegals have a love of government handouts just like legal Americans do.
Currently there is a standoff happening between a Nevada ranching family and the federal government. The Bundy family wants to graze their cattle on land they say they’ve owned since 1870. The Bureau of Land Management wants to protect “a rare desert tortoise.” Why are these things mutually exclusive? Also, why?
