From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Obama's Stash"
Senate investigators researched 300 random disability cases from three states, Alabama, Oklahoma, and Virginia. Wanna guess what they found? In many cases, people were placed on disability rolls without meeting all the qualifications. I'm in shock! How could this happen? Especially with Obama in charge?
The findings were issued by the Republican staff of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. Investigators discovered that many disability benefits were issued without citing the medical evidence to support the claims. People were just added to the rolls.
AP has a ready defense. The opening sentence of their news story proclaims: "Overworked Social Security officials often award disability benefits without adequately reviewing claims, potentially adding to the financial problems of the cash-strapped system."
How bad is the big picture? Nearly 11 million people now receive an average of a thousand bucks a month in disability benefits from Social Security. That's an increase of more than 23 percent over the past five years. The program is headed for insolvency. Like everything else.
See, government workers are simply overwhelmed. They can't help it. Obama is working them like slaves. So they just don't have time to do their job, and review the claims. Thus, they simply put people on the rolls and let them collect the money.
Hey, the loot is from Obama's stash anyway, it's only money, so what's the fuss? Anybody need food stamps? While we're at it?

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"We are not better off than we were four years ago. There isn't a debate about it."
"The Middle East is crumbling. The Red Chinese, the ChiComs, are on the move. The Russians are on the move. Iran is close to having nukes. Israel is on its own on what appears to be the eve of war. And where is Obama? He's in Vegas, Colorado, fundraising, campaigning, cracking jokes at his rallies."
"In the last 3-1/2 years this administration has made it plain that this is a new day for the United States and Islam. So what the hell is happening here?"
"The Egyptians can do all they want, but if Obama's not gonna let the Marines have live ammo -- if there aren't any Marines, if we're not gonna buck up security when we know and have heard that there might be increased protest activity -- how is that the Egyptians' fault anyway?"
"We are in this mess because what Obama wanted, he got! We are in this mess because what he wanted happened, and what he wants to continue happening will continue to happen if he gets reelected, and it's more of the same."
"What could be more factually wrong than saying these protests were not aimed at the United States of America? Does this White House think we're idiots?"
"Obama has not had an actual intelligence briefing since September the 5th, and that he does not attend half of them overall."
"It has just been announced, ladies and gentlemen, that Mitt Romney is now going to start getting intelligence briefings from the White House. It was just announced this week. There's no word yet on when Barack Obama will start getting his intelligence briefings."
"I know liberals like every square inch of my glorious naked body and nothing -- I'm telling you, nothing -- surprises me as I learn it about Obama. Nothing."
"F. Chuck Todd and the rest of the media are Democrats with bylines. They're collaborators. That's all they are. They come from the same fraternities. They go to the same schools."
"One thing about Clinton: I don't think he can help doing a good speech. He is a full bred, 100% through-and-through politician. That speech Clinton gave at the Democrat convention was a classic political convention speech. It's timeless, a hundred years."
"There's a lot of stuff I'm confused about today. And I know if I'm confused, you have to be spinning out of control."
"Admit it, folks, you are happy I am here. Frankly, so am I."
"The American flag's on fire all over the Middle East. The Al-Qaeda flag is being raised. Our ambassador to Libya's dead. And the New York Times tries to tell us that Obama has these guys on the run. What an absolute example of total media corruption. No other way to describe it."
"Most people who are considered great, that was not their goal. 'I want to be great.' They wanted to accomplish something. They wanted to invent something or create a service or they wanted to perform better than anybody else that had never done it."
"Everybody whose success is a direct result of media coverage must live with those kinds of calculations. Reagan didn't care. He had a mission. His goal was accomplishing things, and there were three of them: Beat the communists, lower taxes, rebuild the military. That's what he set out to do. Can anybody name those things for Obama? I can, but they are tied to his personality. Everything's a calculation."

The Romney campaign went live this morning with two new television ads. The first is called "The Romney Plan." It is simple but effective: This one is called "Failing American Families." It is simple, too, and excellent, focusing of spending, debt and falling incomes: These are good ads, I think, because they reinforce what voters already know, that Barack Obama has been a failure as president, and explain in simple »
Barack Obama and his minions are so used to controlling the press that they seem to think they can get away with anything. Thus, the eruption of anti-American riots from Morocco to Pakistan, beginning on September 11, is chalked up to a spontaneous eruption of entirely understandable Muslim distress over an otherwise-unknown YouTube video. Never mind the RPGs and machine guns. And when an American ambassador is murdered and dragged »
There was a time when images of American embassies under siege and a United States ambassador being dragged through the streets by a baying mob would have represented serious trouble for the administration in power, especially when coupled with obvious dishonesty about the circumstances that led to the debacle and an apparent lack of foresight and prudence on the part of the State Department. If anything might be expected to »
I told you last week about the possibility of a potentially ruinous longshoremen's strike at East Coast and Gulf ports this month. As usual, Big Labor refuses to get with the 21st century and adopt much-needed productivity and efficiency rules changes. Talks resumed today. But as the strike deadline — Sept. 30 — closes in, shippers are taking protective measures now:
The ports certainly have much to lose from the effects a potential strike could have on the imports and exports via the US East Coast. International shippers could take their imports and exports through alternative ports, costing the East Coast ports serious money from loss of importing and exporting revenue
The Virginia Port Authority (VPA) was one of the first East Coast ports to take strike threats seriously and create a plan of action to minimize economic losses should the strike take place. Leaders at VPA have made plans to move as much cargo as possible before the September negotiation deadline in anticipation of an ILA strike.
