I may eventually put something worthwhile here. Then again, perhaps I won't.

Priorities

Headline: "Detroit's City Council spends time weighing in on Zimmerman case, puts Motor City issues on back burner."

Sure glad that pesky bankruptcy thing isn’t distracting the Detroit City Council from its important business.

Some recovery

More people stopped looking for work than gained jobs in Obama’s “recovery,” and there are twice as many new food stamp recipients as jobs created.  Way to go, Mr. President!

"You can keep your insurance"

Wegman's is the latest company to adapt to Obamacare by reducing the amount of health insurance it provides it employees. Wegman's said it will no longer provide insurance to part-time workers (and no doubt will prefer to hire part-time workers instead of full-time ones).

Now those workers will have to find insurance in the individual insurance market - expensive stuff - so they're worse off. Of course, they'll get an Obamacare subsidy, so taxpayers can also be on the hook. Not sure how this is an improvement.

So much for the President's promise that "you can keep your insurance" if you like it.
