The Left loves to talk about “tolerance”, but they seem a tad confused as to its actual meaning:
That news segment was from mid-November, but it’s not the end of the story. From Charisma News:
“…Alliance Defending Freedom sent East Point Academy a letter offering free legal assistance after the American Humanist Association threatened to file a lawsuit against the school for including a community service project sponsored by a religious organization as one of the many programs its students may voluntarily participate in.
As you may recall, we recently discussed the creepy Cultish qualities of the Obama fans/Leftists/True Believers. Well, consider this further evidence to buttress that observation, …as if we really needed any.
First up: Obamacare architect Zeke Emanuel:
Emanuel: “…The president never said you were going to have unlimited choice of any doctor in the country you want… But look, if you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor, you can do that. It’s a matter of choice. …
By the end of the day today (Sunday) I will have supervised eleven hours of Living Nativity drama, performed by over 50 different actors (not all at once!) over a space of two and a half days. The four scenes took audiences of 50 people (maximum) at a time on a 20-minute journey through Bethlehem. If all goes well, a couple of thousand people will get to see one of the 60 performances.
But of course it’s not all about the numbers, even if as writer/director/producer I’ve been fixated on that–and on the logistics of making it work and keeping it on schedule.
It’s really about getting inside the experiences of 2,000 years ago and recapturing the wonder and significance of the Christmas story. And that’s really what we should be doing during the Advent season every year. Fortunately, we don’t need to do anything as ambitious as mounting a Living Nativity to accomplish that.
Like a towering regulatory tsunami, our benevolent Federal Government is sending a huge wave of brand new regulations crashing across the nation. And getting to higher ground won’t help matters, I’m afraid.
It’s been a busy year for our Federal Busybodies. Among the hundreds of brand new directives, they’ve added the FDA’s proposed ban of trans fats, the FTC’s new rule on the Hart-Scott-Rodino procedures for pharmaceutical companies, and the EPA revealing that they’re planning on rolling out 134 new environmental regulations in 2014 (which was announced on the day before Thanksgiving, so it would go largely unnoticed. Nice…).
But for a taste of just how petty and nonsensical some of these new regs are, I’ve got a doozy that’s received scant attention from the media.
It seems that our government wishes to “protect” us from the unscrupulous business practices of …your local piano teacher:

MSNBC has officially entered a new level of adulation and fan worship in the Age Of Obama, and my only hope is that it isn’t contagious.
To be sure, they’ve always been willing to say anything, make any kind of ridiculous comparison or analogy, in order to justify their worldview. And their snide self-righteousness has always made it that much more stomach-churning.
That’s why they’re significantly worse than an actual State Run Media, since they do all of it without being told.
They’re cultists, posing as journalists, acting as government mouthpieces.
But this is a new level, an entirely new pinnacle, even for them.

Being an old Sales Guy, I’m particularly aware of any time someone is trying to “sell” me on anything.
Sales pitches in and of themselves are completely fine. My issue is with scammers, preying on people with pitches which are plainly, blatantly dishonest. So when I hear how a product will cure all of what ails me, while it simultaneously cleans my toilets and saves me gobs of cash, my sales-specific Spidey Sense kicks into overdrive.
Which is no doubt why I was immediately suspicious of the superlatives and proclamations accompanying the push to enact Obamacare originally. It was as if this one law was somehow a magical Nautilus machine, Viagra, and Hair Club For Men all rolled into one. And to reap the rewards of this wondrous, Unicorn-fueled legislation, all I had to do was repeat the words “Yes, We Can!!” over and over to myself, while trying very hard to not question how it’d all work.
That was Guy Benson’s über succinct and sniper-level accurate take on the President’s latest “pep rally” on the Affordable Care Act. Nothing new, nothing insightful: just more of the same sclerotic verbiage which we’ve heard from him so often, I’m surprised I don’t mumble it in my sleep.
Maybe that’s why it reminded me of something Mitt Romney said back in January of 2012:
“…This has been a ‘Groundhog Day’ presidency. He keeps saying the same things and we keep waking up with the same things going on. Nothing changes,” Romney said.
“He keeps saying these great things he’s going to do and yet it’s the same picture every single morning…”
