The net Effects of Obamacare at the March deadline

So what are the end effects of Obamacare at the March 31st deadline.  Have the scare tactics worked?  The administration has been warning people of penalties if they were not signed up by the March 31st dealine. It just doesn't seem like it at all.  The younger generations are not buying into it, clearly not happy with the facts that they are shouldered with higher costs in an attempt to supplement the older, less healthy Obamacare participants.

North Texas West Nile Virus cases spike dramatically

Get ready.  It is about to be mosquito season around here!  As spring arrives and the thunderstorms roll in, so do the mosquitos start appearing.  Cases of West Nile Virus will be through the roof this spring and summer in Dallas and Fort Worth according to the experts.

The local newspapers are going to run with dramatic story lines for sure.  We will see it on the local news every night.  Another death from West Nile.

Dallas County Health Director Zachary Thompson said in an interview with WFAA channel 8, "Oh it's going to be panic, but If we start early and we reduce the abundance of mosquitos that reduces the likelihood of having increased numbers of West Nile cases."

So be sure to drain standing water and mosquito proof your home when those temperatures start to rise.  Don't leave doors or windows open.  Wear your bug spray and try not to be outdoors near sunset when the pesky mosquitos are most active and dangerous.

Lois Lerner - Acts the Coward as Elijah Cummings goes crazy

Documents have clearly shown that the IRS under Lois Lerner unfairly targeted right leaning organizations both for audits and to prevent them from gaining non-profit status.  She referred to Tea Party organizations as dangerous.  Now, when Congress tries to get to the bottom of the obvious scandal, Lerner pleads protection under the Fifth Amendment.

This means she does not have to say anything, despite having the knowledge of the unfair practices and coverup.  What a loser.

Then this idiot Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummings has the gall to try to extend the hearing in which Lois Lerner declined to participate by trying to steal the floor for his own political purposes.  had the gumption to say there is no evidence to support the hearing when in fact there are papers upon papers showing how the IRS unfairly treated these organizations.

Despite there being no reason for the hearing to continue due to Lerner declining to participate, Cummings was not ready for the hearing to end. He began shouting, and Chairman Darrell Issa cut off his microphone. After he convinced Issa to let him ask a question, Cummings began screaming into the microphone again, at which point Issa shut off his microphone for a second time.

Typical from the President Obama led Congress.

Russia loses all Winter Olympic goodwill

Russia loses all Winter Olympic goodwill

Well that certainly didn't last long.  It took Vladimir Putin less than a month to take all the pro-Russia feelings around the world and flush them down the toilet.  Billions of dollars wasted in what was supposed to signal to the world that Russia were back and ready to be friends.
