Women In Combat? Not In This Commercial

Two more women have washed out of Marine Corps Infantry Officer Course, putting a quick end to the latest iteration of an experiment into marine_femalewhich roles female Marines might be able to fill in combat. The women failed the introductory Combat Endurance Test, a punishing test of physical strength and endurance, officials at Marine Corps headquarters said Tuesday.

The Blind Leading The Blind

But you know, it only makes sense for this administration. Here’s the lead Democrat Gun Bill sponsor that doesn’t know squat about diana-degette-gun_bill_sponsorfirearms. Thinks clips and magazines are a single-use accessory.  more . . .

Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette, the lead Democratic sponsor of a federal bill to ban high-capacity magazines . . .

I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now, they’re going to shoot them. So if you ban them in the future, the number of these high-capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time, because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.

The reason it only makes sense is because we have a community organizer for a President who has never run a business, but got elected twice to run the country and take over 20 percent of the economy in the form of nationalized health care. One could expect that the proposed gun control legislation will work as well as everything President Obama has done to create jobs, grow the economy, and increase the quality of health care for everyone while covering 30 or 40 million more people, all while lowering its cost. How’s that working for you?

Note: No offense to the visually impaired is meant by the title. People who are blind see things better than this politician.

Obamacare And The Titanic

In an all-out effort to snag as many payers into their single-payer health care plan, the Obama administration is using mass marketing to obamacare_titanicenroll as many ‘insureds’ as they can to help pay for their over-promised health plan, the so-called Affordable Care Act. The list of broken promises about Obamacare is endless. Including the case that the last 30 million people who can’t afford or don’t want health insurance will now be covered. Well, after all is said and done, there will still be between 30 and 40 million people without health insurance. And, it isn’t affordable, no matter how many people sign up.

A marketing analysis posted online by the federal Health and Human Services Department reveals six distinct groups, three of which appear critical to the success or failure of the program. They’re the “Healthy & Young,” comprising 48 percent of the uninsured, the “Sick, Active & Worried,” (29 percent of the uninsured), and the “Passive & Unengaged” (15 percent).

The challenge for the administration is obvious: signing up lots of the Healthy & Young, as well as the Passive & Unengaged, to offset the higher costs of covering the sick and worried.

Basically, what we have here is an ad campaign selling suites on the Titanic, with a ‘motor-voter‘ twist.
