Jimmy Carter says he would have defeated Reagan had he been more 'manly' | WashingtonExaminer.com
Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran.
Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.
The delusions of an old man with a failing memory.

Northeast loses 40% of House seats as people flee high-tax states

Northeast loses 40% of House seats as people flee high-tax states | WashingtonExaminer.com

The Northeast, once the nation’s political engine that produced presidents, House speakers and Senate giants including the late Edward M. Kennedy, is losing clout in Washington as citizens flee the high-tax region, according to experts worried about the trend.
The Census Bureau reports that population growth has shifted to the South and the result is that the 11 states that make up the Northeast are being bled dry of representation in Washington.
Critics blame rising taxes in states such as Massachusetts and Connecticut for limiting population growth in the Northeast to just 15 percent from 1983 to 2013, while the rest of the nation grew more than 41 percent.
The biggest impact comes in the loss of congressional representation.
Deep in a recent report, for example, the American Legislative Exchange Council tabulated how the drop in population relative to the rest of the nation cut the region’s power in Washington. While the states from Pennsylvania to Maine had 141 House members in 1950, they are down to 85 today, a drop of some 40 percent.
California and Texas combined have more House representatives..


“This result is one of the most dramatic demographic shifts in American history. This migration is shifting the power center of America right before our very eyes. The movement isn’t random or even about weather or resources. Economic freedom is the magnet and states ignore this force at their own peril,” said the report.

 As humorous as this sounds.....every last word of it is absolutely TRUE!
 1. In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to uninsure the insured.
 2. Next, we require the newly uninsured to be re-insured.
 3. To re-insure the newly uninsured, they are required to pay extra charges to be re-insured.
 4. The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became uninsured, and
then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original uninsured can be insured,
which will be free of charge to them.
 This, ladies and gentlemen, is called "redistribution of wealth" or, by its more common name, SOCIALISM.
