Ed Lasky at the American Thinker: Obama’s War on Chris Christie:

Anyone who has spent any time studying Barack Obama’s background, knows that he’s not just any garden variety liberal.  He’s a ruthless far-left ideologue who exerts more energy fighting political opponents than the nation’s real enemies. His latest target, NJ Conservative superstar, Chris Christie, has already faced an attack from the DOJ, and now, has been targeted by Ray Lahood’s department of Transportation. Lasky takes us on a trip down memory lane, to illustrate why Christie should be bracing for more aggression from the Obama administration.

CA Lifestyles of the Rich and Pensioned

The creator of this amusing parody about California’s outlandish public employee pensions, got his/her inspiration from the “Downfall” parodies:

Did you know:

California’s pension system – the largest in the nation – is some $59.5 billion shy of what it has promised to pay, and that may be the good news, according to the Pew Center on the States. The health benefits that California has guaranteed its retirees? That’s almost completely unfunded – a $62. 5 billion problem.
