Study: 'Cash for Clunkers' another Obama failure

From The Hill newspaper: 
A study released on Wednesday found that President Obama's Cash for Clunkers rebate system for old cars was an ineffective stimulus program.

The study, conducted by the Brookings Institution, found that the $2.85 billion Cash for Clunkers program only created 0.7 jobs for each million dollars the federal government spent.

The ratio translated to a rate of $1.4 million for each job, which the authors of the study said was a very expensive stimulus.

Tea Party Group Urges 'No' Vote on PA Supreme Court Justices

The Independence Hall Tea Party PAC based in Philadelphia is urging Pennsylvania voters to vote 'No' on retention of two Pennsylvania Supreme Court justices seeking new terms on Nov. 5.  Group Urges 'No' Vote on Retention of PA Supreme Court Justices

The reason the group opposes Ron Castille and Max Baer is their failure to implement Voter ID in Pennsylvania. The Voter ID law was passed by both chambers of the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Tom Corbett in 2012, but the Supreme Court put the law on hold for both the 2012 and 2013 election cycles while a lower court hears objections filed by Democrats and the ACLU.

Castille and Baer should face the price for interfering with the will of the people, argues the tea party group.

Here is a press release issued by the group:
The Independence Hall Tea Party PAC is urging a 'No' vote on retention of PA Supreme Court Justices Ron Castille (R) and Max Baer (D) in Tuesday's November 5, 2013 election due to their failure to uphold the Voter ID law enacted by the Pennsylvania Assembly and signed by Governor Tom Corbett (R).

"The Independence Hall Tea Party worked extremely hard to help get Voter ID passed--beginning in November 2010," said PAC President, Don Adams.

"We have contacted over 170 Tea Party and Patriot groups across Pennsylvania to ask that they join us in urging the rejection of Justices Ron Castille  and Max Baer for their role in obstructing the implementation of the Voter ID law in both the 2012 and 2013 Pennsylvania Primary and General Elections," said PAC President, Don Adams.

According to Pennsylvania law, Chief Justice Ron Castille, age 69, is required to retire from the Supreme Court upon his 70th birthday.

"The PAC is urging voters to give both justices an early retirement for thwarting the will of the people and Pennsylvania law by refusing to implement Voter ID.

"Polls consistently show that Pennsylvanians favor Voter ID by overwhelming margins.  A September 2012 Quinnipiac/NY Times/CBS Poll showed that 62% of Pennsylvanians approve the law, while 35% oppose.

Additionally, 99% of those interviewed stated that they possessed a state issued photo identification and 1% did not," said Adams.

"Despite these figures, the PA Supreme Court, with the votes of both Justices Castille and Baer, has seen fit to obstruct Voter ID implementation in four election cycles by twice remanding that a lower court review the law's merit, with specific stipulations of the high court, based on a questionable legal challenge.

"The PA Supreme Court did not even have the courage to rule on the law itself.  Instead, it is hiding behind the rulings of lower court judges.

"This is completely unacceptable behavior and the voters of Pennsylvania will have a chance to say 'No' to the Justices who said 'No' to Voter ID."

"Undoubtedly, Justices Castille and Baer will spend a small fortune on the retention vote.  We will be limited to word of mouth and free social media. 

But since 2013 is a low turnout election year, and voters, in general, are not in a good mood, we hope to prevail.

Doctors' Group Decries Obamacare 'Incomptence'

Jane M. Orient, M.D., Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, issued the following statement today after HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius' testimony before a Congressional committee:
"Secretary Sebelius states that the Affordable Care Act, which can't produce a functional Web site, is going to fix the 'delivery system.' Once people get corralled into Obama-compliant health plans, doctors will be automatically made smarter, more efficient, and less costly. She herself must be Wonder Woman. One day, she says they really needed six years to do the Web site, then she claims it will be fixed in only six weeks!

"Can incompetence really be this gross? Or is the true objective being achieved? Do they really want more uninsured people, more Medicaid dependents, and the wreckage of both private insurance and private medicine?

"Obama’s supporters appear to think that there is no problem with breaking clear promises, like being able to keep your health insurance, if you can just change the meaning to 'you can't keep the insurance you like, but you'll be able to buy something we like for twice the cost.'

"If Obama can rewrite the law as he likes, why stop with delaying the employer mandate and forcing still more people into the individual mandate? Can he go all the way to single payer, all by himself?

"The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) filed suit today to challenge Obama's violation of the constitutional separation of powers by legislating from the White House."

The high cost of ObamaCare deception

John Hayward on the unraveling of Obamacare:
President Obama's Rose Garden press conference on the ObamaCare disaster featured a group of 13 human props, lined up on stage behind him to put a face on the alleged virtues of his health care scheme.  It turns out none of them had actually purchased an ObamaCare insurance plan, and only three of them had even completed the application process.

What a perfect summary of the disastrous incompetence and fundamental dishonesty of Barack Obama's "signature achievement!" Three weeks in, his gigantic political team couldn't find any actual "happy customers." They had to settle for a couple of people who look forward to maybe doing some shopping on the exchanges one of these days. They might not like what they find, assuming they can cudgel anything but a stream of error messages from the system.

Greek Food Bazaar Returns to Reading, PA, Oct. 18-19-20

Enjoy a visit to Greece without leaving Berks County when the 43rd annual Greek Food Bazaar returns Oct. 18-19-20 at Sts. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Reading, Pa.
In addition to authentic Greek food and pastry, the three-day festival features live music, dancing, gift rooms and church tours. 
The food is prepared and cooked on the premises by church members using family recipes handed down through generations. All food items are available to eat-in in or take-out. 
Athenian-style chicken platters, which comes with pastitsio or rice pilaf, Greek-style string beans, a Greek salad, roll and butter for $12 will be offered all weekend in the main dining hall. You can substitute plaki (fresh fish fillet baked with vegetables, herbs and wine) or souvlaki (chunks of marinated pork) on the platter meal. 
There are also a la carte items such gyro (marinated beef and lamb slices) and souvlaki (pork shis-ke-bob) sandwiches; calamari (squid) cooked in tomatoes and wine; moussaka (eggplant casserole); arni psito (roast lamb cooked with herbs); and pastitsio (layered Greek pasta, seasoned with chopped beef topped with b├ęchamel sauce). 
A variety of imported Greek wines and spirits, including Ouzo, an anise-flavored liqueur, are available, as well as domestic and imported beers.
While enjoying a meal in the main dining hall, visitors will be treated to Greek music by Stavros & Maria, a brother-sister duo who are also church members. 
The church’s youth dance group, Kefi, will perform traditional Greek dances wearing colorful costumes throughout the weekend. 
After a hearty meal, there’s plenty to see and do on the church grounds. The Agora (Greek market) offers packaged Greek foods and prepared dishes to go. The Kafenio (Greek coffee house) features fresh-brewed Greek-style coffee, rice pudding and pastries in a relaxed atmosphere.
Visitors can also shop for original artwork, gold jewelry and items imported from Greece in various gift rooms. 
A popular stop for all visitors is the pastry room, where you can sample baklava (almonds, butter and honey layered in flaky pastry), teelikta (walnuts, butter and honey rolled in flaky pastry); kourabiethes (butter cookies topped with powdered sugar);, koulourakia (Greek twisted butter cookie); and galaktobouriko (a filo pastry filled with custard and moistened with honey syrup).
Another Greek delicacy offered throughout the weekend is loukoumades (puffed honey balls), a warm, dough pastry topped with honey, cinnamon and chopped nuts.
Bazaar hours are noon to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Admission and parking are free. Additional parking across the street at Berks Catholic High School. The event will be held rain or shine. 
The church is located at 1001 E. Wyomissing Blvd., about one mile from Business Route 222 South (also known as Lancaster Avenue).

Weekly GOP Address: Republicans Willing To Negotiate

Is Obama behind the EBT food stamp card crash?

The EBT Debit Card System, the government program for food stamps, crashes across the country on a Saturday, the busiest grocery shopping day of the week, during a government shutdown in which Obama ordered his minions to make the lives of Americans as painful as possible.

And you don't think Obama is behind the whole thing?

The initial shutdown was reported on Friday in 10 states, but it appears to have spread to more states Saturday. The lucrative EBT program is managed by JP Morgan Chase, a major contributor to the Obama campaign. The company blamed the problem on a computer glitch, but here we are 24 hours later and JP Morgan hasn't fixed the "glitch." Sounds a lot like the Obamacare health exchange website glitch, doesn't it?
The Electronic Benefits Transfer system managed by JP Morgan Chase crashed on Friday, leaving millions of recipients of the benefits in ten states without a way to put food on the table.
Bank officials said that the outage affected EBT recipients in Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Georgia, South Carolina, Indiana, Kentucky, Connecticut, West Virginia, Delaware. It also hit the U.S. Virgin Islands.

If you don't think Obama's fingerprints are all over this, you're probably one of those low-information voters still waiting for hope and change.

So millions of Americans who depend on the government for food can't get any groceries but we're about to turn over our health care system to the same people who run the food stamp program? What could possibly go wrong?

Pa. lawmaker wants maximum speed raised to 70

As a Pennsylvania resident, I wasn't aware there was a pressing need to raise the state's maximum speed limit from 65 mph to 70 mph, but Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-Jefferson) is pushing a bill to do just that.

In reality, most Pennsylvania drivers do at least 70 mph on most of the state's highways, so I'm not sure what the harm would be to raising the speed limit.

Also keep in mind that Scarnati represents one of the most rural legislative districts in Pennsylvania, one that has few police officers patrolling interstate highways, so I'm sure people are already doing a lot more than 70 mph.

On the other hand, is this really the most pressing issue facing Pennsylvania residents or is this another legislator looking for something to keep himself busy with instead of tackling real issues?


Scarnati issued the following statement regarding his proposal to increase the maximum speed limit on Pennsylvania interstate highways and the Pennsylvania Turnpike: 
Today I have circulated a co-sponsorship memo for legislation I intend to introduce which would increase the maximum speed limit on Pennsylvania interstate highways and the Pennsylvania Turnpike from 65 to 70 miles per hour. 

Increasing Pennsylvania’s maximum speed limit on interstate highways and the PA Turnpike will allow for better traffic flow and provide for greater efficiency in the delivery of goods throughout the Commonwealth.  Numerous other states have already taken the step to allow for traveling at a maximum speed of 70 MPH or more. 

Over the last two decades since Pennsylvania’s maximum speed limit was last set, our vehicles have become more technically efficient and safety standards have continued to increase.  As we move forward with this measure a significant component of the legislation will focus on ensuring necessary traffic and engineering studies are completed prior to increasing the speed limit on any stretch of highway.

Obama job approval dropes to 37%

The Associated Press, a left-leaning news organization that no longer pretends to hide its political bias, conducted  one of its periodic polls of President Obama's job approval. The results? Just 37 percent of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing. So how does the AP report Obama's stunning decline in popularity? By burying the news in the eighth paragraph of the story, of course.

That's right. The wire service manages to hide the biggest news in its own poll deep inside the story. You had to wade through seven long paragraphs of superfluous information to get to the real news in the poll. That, my friends, is what is know as liberal media bias.

Check out the poll results for yourself here.
