Willie Robertson, star of the hit A&E reality show series "Duck Dynasty," said in a recent interview that he wouldn't mind spending some quality time with President Barack Obama while duck hunting, so the two could learn more about each other and discuss their beliefs, including politics.
Robertson, CEO of the Duck Commander family business, was in an interview with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham on Monday when she asked Robertson which American Democrat would he most like to hunt with and why. Robertson responded by saying "the president."
"I'd like to talk and debate and find out what's going on in his brain a little more," Robertson explained. "You know that's kind of my philosophy, I don't shy away from people I disagree with. I want to know why they think what they do and see if you can move to maybe change their thinking in some ways. I'm open myself. I keep an open mind to other people's beliefs." more >>
This week marks the fourth birthday of Obamacare but it's not all birthday cake and balloons-many people are not celebrating this year after the botched rollout and string of mishaps surrounding enrollment.
Nothing is merry about the fact that over six million people have lost their insurance coverage and are now struggling to find an affordable health care plan.
One group of people who certainly won't be celebrating is Millennials. Millennials are among the people most impacted by the disastrous law. They are expected to subsidize healthcare for the older and sicker generation. more >>
Details remain sketchy of the facts leading up to the crash. We really won't know what happened until someone finds the black box. I am talking about the crashing of our health care system under Obamacare. At least the Malaysian Air folks sent victim families a text.
It will be coming up on its fifth anniversary next year of ObamaCare. The traditional fifth anniversary gift is wood, so I remain hopeful we will take a wooden baseball bat to the law.
The "Affordable" Care Act was born of deception with statements like "We have to pass the bill so you can see what's in it," and "If you like your insurance and your doctor, you can keep them-period." Contrived in malice and surviving only because the media look the other way, ObamaCare is an unwieldy morass of a solution to a problem that never existed. more >>
The Hollywood Reporter's Paul Bond writes:
The right-wing filmmaker, who is under indictment for violating campaign finance laws, borrows video from Zach Galifianakis' interview with the president to market his upcoming movie, "America."
In a quirky bit of marketing for a political documentary, conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza has released a video parody (BELOW) of the Funny or Die online series Between Two Ferns, itself a parody of TV talk shows. more >>
The death toll from the massive Washington state mudslide on Saturday continues to rise, with officials saying that 14 people have now been confirmed dead, while another 176 are still missing.
"I would just ask all Americans to send their thoughts and prayers to Washington state," President Barack Obama asked while speaking from the Nuclear Security Summit in Netherlands, USA Today reported.
A massive 1-square-mile mudslide struck Snohomish County on Saturday, the result of recent heavy rainfall that caused uneven ground, destroying close to 35 homes. Both the death toll and the number of people missing have been rising each day since, with authorities stating that hopes for finding more survivors are grim. more >>
With Vladimir Putin's seeming success in rolling over Crimea and pushing aside the Ukrainians, President Obama is talking tough. And, though Ukraine is not a member of NATO, Poland, the Baltic States, Hungary and the Czech Republic are. They need some shoring up. So Mr. Obama has sent Vice President Joe Biden to reassure the Poles. This makes sense to President Obama because Joe Biden sat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for nearly forty years. Sending Joe Biden to Warsaw will impress the Russians, the president believes. Now, they will surely know that Obama means business. The president famously said of his veep: "nobody messes with Joe."
Former Defense Secretary Bob Gates might not have suggested sending Biden to Poland. In his recently released memoir, Duty, the former Defense Sec. says "Joe Biden has been wrong on every foreign policy issue for thirty years."
Joe Biden supported his chief's decision early in this administration to cancel the missile defense agreement with Poland. The U.S. had promised to help Poland and the Czech Republic to defend themselves against Iran and, not incidentally, to enable these once captive nations to resist new pressures from Moscow. Now, Moscow is rising anew. more >>
