Well this as good a poll as any to use on Halloween …
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 37% of Americans say that a Zombie would do a better job than the current federal government officials that are in Washington, DC. One might say the undead vs. the brain dead. To be honest with you for the most part these days, I do not think we could tell the difference between the two. Actually, how do we know they are not Zombies? We have yet to see any polling on how vampires, ghosts or ghouls do as compared to federal government.
All in favor of the bill say aye …
It’s not exactly a vote of confidence in the powers that be: A sizable number of Americans think the undead would do a better job than the brain dead in Washington, D.C.
Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults believe the federal government would do a better job than zombies running the country today. But the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that most Americans don’t share that view, with just as many (37%) who feel zombies would do a better job running the country and another 26% who can’t decide between the two.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is widely considered the front-runner for the Democrat nomination for President in 2016 and many believe the next President of the United States. However, the same could be said to be true in 2008 when from out of no where an unqualified, novice Senator from Illinois defeated her in the primaries. A new WSJ/NBC poll shows that Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers have slipped a bit as 46% view her positively and 33% view her in a negative light. Her positive rating is down 10% from April. As Obama’s poll numbers plummet, Hillary’s appear to be sliding as well.
What difference does it make that I failed on the International stage in Benghazi and four Americans died?
Hillary Clinton’s public image has slumped in recent months, with younger voters, Democrats and independents taking a less enthusiastic view of her, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows.
Overall, 46% registered a positive view of the ex-secretary of state, compared to 33% who expressed a negative opinion. As recently as April, 56% saw Mrs. Clinton in a positive light.
Mrs. Clinton has not yet declared her intentions in the 2016 presidential race, but if she runs she would be the solid front-runner in the Democratic field, public polling has shown.
From The Politico, Hillary Clinton is losing ground with young voters.
The poll also highlights that Clinton is losing support among younger voters, independents and even within her own party. She dropped 15 percentage points since April among 18- to 34-year-olds who said they had a positive view of Clinton to 38 percent. Additionally, her approval rating among independents fell from 46 percent to 35 percent. Clinton’s approval among Democrats also fell by 12 points, from 88 percent in April to 76 percent in the most recent poll.
Obviously Hillary Clinton is the front-runner for 2016 as she has the greatest name recognition; however, she does face several obstacles that could be her undoing.
- Because Hillary Clinton has such name recognition and is a known commodity, very few are going to have no opinion or not know they name so she has very little upside in undecided individuals.
- Hillary Clinton is considered part of the “Washington establishment” and by the time 2016 rolls around the American people may be beyond completely fed up with Washington “insiders”.
- After 8 years of Barack Obama and an exasperated America, the voters may just be exhausted of having a Democrat in the White House.
- If Obamacare continues to be the disaster that it is and implodes as the model is pretty much unsustainable the Americans are going to be in no mood for Hillary Healthcare either.
- Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi … when the truth comes out and it will come out, it will be damning for Hillary Clinton. She is going to rue the day she made the comment, “What difference does it make … “ She is going to be savaged in the debates and going to have to answer for Benghazi and why she turned a deaf ear to warnings and requests for more security.
- Obama Fatigue and he may be so unpopular and toxic at that point that it taints her run.
- The outcome of the 2014 elections.
- If the economy continues to stink, pathetic job growth, low employment participation rate, record federal debt and record food stamp participants, America is going to want a change of parties at the top.
- Did we say Benghazi?
- Hillary Clinton will be 69 years old in 2016 and is there that young Democrat candidate that we have not even heard of yet that will steal her thunder as Obama did in 2008?
If you missed the House hearings yesterday on the Obamacare website debacle rollout with HHS. Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the below VIDEO is some of the highlights. Some questioning was better than others and for the most part the Democrats decided not to care to represent the millions of people who have lost their insurance who are their constituents. Instead, they played partisan politics and seemed to defend Obamacare, the website and blame the GOP of hoping that the sky is falling. This from the folks who said that sequestration would be the end of the world.
- Sebelius actually said the site has not crashed.
- “Some people like to drink out of a red solo cup, not a crystal stem”
- “Hold me accountable for the debacle, I am responsible”
- “We’re not in Kansas anymore”
- “Would you recommend to the president that he stop using the term, ‘If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan’”
- The problem with this whole debate, is you [Sebelius] won’t tell us who made the decisions”.
- Who made the decision on the 27 year old quote who is 50?”
- “We did not adequately do end-to-end testing”
What might have been one of the more eye-opening Q&A that should give all pause who entered their person data on Healthcare.gov was when it was asked,”Has each piece of that code that has been introduced into the system been security tested?” Sebelius’ ultimate answer was , “I don’t know”. WHAT? How could you not know and have made it go live? Sounds HIPAA compliant to me, NOT!
I guess Obama will consider this another phony scandal.
Sanford, FL To Ban Neighborhood Watch From Carrying Guns in the Wake of George Zimmerman Being Found Not Guilty in Death of Trayvon Martin
Imagine what would have happened if there was no gun
The city of Sanford, FL is going to ban neighborhood watch volunteers from carrying guns following the “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial in the death of Trayvon Martin. Well that makes all the sense in the world that a man was found not guilty of committing a crime in a court of law by a jury of his peers and Sanford is basically going to act as if he was guilty. As stated at Legal Insurrection, Zimmerman successfully and lawfully defended himself against an attacker and possible real harm, maybe even death and Sanford passes a law banning neighborhood watch volunteers from carrying guns.
The city of Sanford is making major changes to its neighborhood watch program, including banning volunteers from carrying guns while on patrol, and forbidding them from pursuing anyone in their neighborhoods. Just curious, what are they allowed to do, watch the thugs rob, beat and kill people?
Pic Hat Tip – Legal Insurrection
Just months after George Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the Florida city where the incident occurred intends to ban neighborhood watch members from carrying guns, The Orlando Sentinel reports.
The ban on guns in Sanford, Fla. comes amid other changes, including formal training and volunteer registration, which will be announced in full at a meeting Nov. 5 at City Hall. Residents acting in a neighborhood watch role are also not to follow someone they deem suspicious, according to MSN News.
I am sure thugs, robbers and thieves are just wetting themselves with this news. So let’s understand this, if you are a neighborhood watch volunteer you can’t carry a gun, but if you are not, you can. Boy, there is some logic for you.
UNREAL … Individual Wears Barack Obama Costume To Jennie Stuart Medical Center Work Halloween Party in Kentucky … As a result, All 750 Employees Required to Take Diversity Training
HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM PC AMERICA … DOUBLE STANDARD LIBERAL POLICIES!!!
Remember when a Halloween party was a Halloween party and you could wear crazy, spooky, evil, funny, costumes and it was all in fun? Well those days are over as the PC police are at it again. It is now considered rasists and offensive to dress up like Barack Obama. A man at the Jennie Stuart Medical Center in Hopkinsville, Kentucky wore a Barack Obama costume to his work’s annual Halloween party complete with mask and straight-jacket. The result was that all 750 employees were required to take diversity training because of this. HUH? Yup, one person’s costume because it was if the Obamamessiah caused individuals to complain. Has the world gone completely mad? The VP of HR at his company may need a mental evaluation. How does dressing up like Obama for Halloween in turn result in sensitivity training? Just curious, how is such behavior considered offensive and require sensitivity training when SNL mocks the president all the time like HERE and HERE?
I actually think its pretty offensive to force people to buy a product or face a tax, or its pretty damn offensive to rack up a $17 trillion federal debt and it is damn sure offensive to leave four Americans to die in Benghazi and not lift a finger to help them and then blame it on a video tape. The ridiculousness of this kind of nonsense has reached epic proportions. I think it is a safe bet that some one will always be offended by an action that another does. Sadly, this country has gotten worse under Obama.
A picture of a Jennie Stuart Medical Center employee wearing a President Barack Obama mask and straitjacket at the hospital’s annual costume party has stirred debate.
As a result, all 750 employees have now been required to take diversity training. The VP of Human Resources at the medical center issued a statement to staff apologizing for anyone who was offended and personally took responsibility since the incident occurred on his watch.
Because as stated at Weasel Zippers, like diversity training would have been required if some one worse a George W. Bush mask and made people feel … uncomfortable. Yea, I am sure they would have done the same with a Sarah Palin costume as well.
A note to all … if you wear an Obama costume in a straight-jacket and show up for Halloween, you will get extra candy. If you have a teleprompter or empty chair, you may get it all!!!
