What Really Matters


Barack Obama kinda-sorta half-ass apologizes:

President Obama is offering an apology to Americans who have received insurance cancellation notices–sort of.

In an interview with NBC News, the president says “I’m sorry” to Americans who are losing their health plans.

“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” he told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House.

What Obama isn’t offering is an apology for the cancellation notices themselves. Eliminating certain health plans from the market — ones that the White House thinks are too skimpy — is a feature, not a bug, of the Affordable Care Act.


That’s not an apology. That’s not even a kinda-sorta half-ass apology. That’s a non-apology apology. That’s the kind of thing you say when someone’s dog dies.

“My dog died.” “I’m sorry.”

Except in Obama’s case, he ran over the dog and fled the scene. But he doesn’t feel guilty because it was a stupid dog anyway. He was doing you a favor.

But the fact that Obama lied isn’t what really matters. Neither is the Healthcare.gov clusterfuck. We already knew that Obama was incompetent and a liar. That’s old news.

The website will eventually get fixed and people will be able to sign up for healthcare insurance. Politicians lie all the time. It’s not right, but it’s like a dog scooting his butt on the carpet – it’s gonna happen whether you like it or not.

If those were the only two things wrong with Obamacare it would be a pretty good program. But they’re just the tip of the tip of the iceberg. Wait until the employer mandate takes effect – that’s when the fit will hit the Shan.

What really matters is that Obamacare is the Mother of all Clusterfucks. At each stage of the roll-out process there will be more FUBARed glitches. This thing is gonna be worse than a New Mexico traffic stop.


Just a glitch!

Just a glitch!

    Imagine a huge iceberg made out of frozen sewage.

    That’s Obamacare.

    • driguana says:

      Now that’s a tough image!!! That combined with remembering New Mexico traffic stops and you’ve completely ruined my Friday….and it just started!!! My only question is, when will America have had enough???

      • indigogrrl1 says:

        what can America possibly do? the elections are rigged. To repeat myself even if someone knows exactly whats going on THE ELECTIONS ARE RIGGED. We cant blame the voters if their votes dont count. We’re going to keep having “elections” like we just had in VA where targeted precincts just happen to vote the “right” way.
        and with a propaganda machine as powerful as the MSM and the entertainment industry aint nobody gonna say a word.

        • driguana says:

          Yes, especially after watching and researching, the best I could, the 2012 elections. It was really pretty disgusting! And what ‘s up with Cincinnati, my hometown??? That one lady said she voted 6 times!!! And the whole IRS scandal started there. So, if the elections are rigged,how does the voting opportunity change in the future?

          A funny side note…I was in the Peace Corps in Liberia West Africa and the last time President William Tubman was elected before he died in 1971, he got 105% of the vote…gotta love that. Kinda like Obama getting 100% of the vote in some parts of Philadelphia.

        • The Klown says:

          Even after the 2000 election I didn’t want to believe that election fraud was a problem in the United States outside of a few places like Chicago.

      • lyn says:

        The Tea Party fought Obamacare, and look how the ruling class and its media cheerleaders portrayed TP supporters: terrorists, anarchists, extremists. Obama doesn’t need drones to kill Americans; he and the Democrats created Obamacare. We’ve entered second-world territory where politicians and media lie to keep the status quo.

        • The Klown says:

          Remember the day that they passed Obamacare? That was the day that Tea Partiers supposedly spit on Emmanuel Cleaver. It supposedly happened when Nasty Nancy and some other Democrats went for a walk to taunt the TP members protesting in front of the Capitol.

          Andrew Breitbart offered $100,000 for video or photographic proof that Cleaver was spit on. There were no takers.

    The best part is at the very end:

    • t says:

      The only consolation prize is that they will lose Congress next year. Yes! And then Mr. Bipartisan hope and changie will understand what real politics are like….although I don’t think Obamacare is going away. It is an insurance company wet dream. And both parties lurves themselves some insurance companies.

  3. The Klown says:

    For some reason the Koolaid blogs are ignoring Obama’s non-apology. I discovered a long time ago that what they don’t talk about reveals a lot.

    • Constance says:

      I immediately turned on Chris Matthews last night when I heard of Obama’s acknowledgement that some people lost policies which they wanted. Chris and Joan looked stricken. It is always entertaining to watch them spin and attempt to rationalize.

  4. driguana says:

    Perhaps a bit off topic but still in the category of “what really matters”…this whole Jonathan Martin issue with the Miami Dolphins is going beyond the tipping point of civility…pro football or not…what really is at issue here? That Martin is a well educated, soft spoken African American??? Something isn’t right about this….

    • lyn says:

      Has there been a peep from Obama?

    • Sounds like someone there thought he was “weak” in some way and overdid the toughening process. The disconnect is that the normal reaction should have Incognito being dumped on his butt. Since that didn’t happen something else seems awry.

    • Constance says:

      I bet one of the two involved is gay and I bet that is what the hazing was about. No way is the NFL going to talk about that.

    Yup, nailed it in one q.

    • The Klown says:

      Accrdong to our super-smart elite Vile Prog overlords, they will get “free” healthcare insurance. And low-income people will get subsidies, so they get free money too!

      • insanelysane says:

        Remember, the subsidies go directly to the Insurance Companies. They will reap rewards for buying the election of BHO.

    • t says:

      I have no idea how Obama is going to get himself out of this one. Typically he has the fawning press to help him. This time, the fawning press are losing their health insurance plans — plans that they know aren’t substandard TO THEM — but only in terms of the stupid requirements of the stupid law. So instead of saying, oh, those poor little people, but Obama knows what’s best, they’re siding with us.

      It will be interesting. Wish I were actually on the sidelines watching…but eventually none of us will be sidelined.

    I have never seen so many government workers and no matter what their title is they are government workers, refuse to testify to a congressional committee. Every scandal from the backtrack bunch it is a fight to get a government worker that is involved to testify. the backtrack bunch and their minions really do have nothing but contempt for congress.
    Yesterday he announced that he is stacking the courts. there goes another branch of government.
    The major thing that no one seems to see or talk about is the complete undermining of our way of government.
    Three EQUAL branches of government, not the executive branch and two subsidiaries
    I do not think I am over reacting in this

    • driguana says:

      There is no doubt that the Executive Branch of our government is running roughshod over the other two. I’ve also been wondering if there isn’t some other way to appoint/get Supreme Court Justices. The skewing of these appointments toward the party in power when there is a vacancy also seems a bit out of place . Guess the only good aspect of the Supreme Court is that they can reside until they resign or die…just wondering.

    • What in the name of all that is Sane keeps a “refuse to testify before Congress” government worker employed by the people? Shouldn’t that be an automatic resignation?
      Trying to think how long a cop or firefighter would last if they refused a subpoena to testify in court. Two days? Three?

  13. votermom says:

    I guess I might as well get my apology in too

    I’m thinking Obamacare is the Dems plan to save Social Security and Medicare…..We all die 10 years earlier on Government health care and they don’t have to pay out everything we paid in to SS and Medicare.

    Okay, I am LMAO at this woman on a hair care forum. She has long hair well over 40, and takes very good care of it: i.e. it’s not bleached, dyed, fried, hot-ironed, teased and frizzled to death. It’s very healthy and soft and she’s partial to wearing it up in a french twist.

    So she read yet another article on how longer hair as you age is a big no no, as it “ages you.” She went off.

    I mean, what…if we can manage to look five years younger than we are (no matter what that age currently is, apparently, unless we’re under 25) we win some sort of a prize, and jobs fall at our feet and the opposite sex is all over us and we win the Nobel Prize for Standing There and Looking Young? But if we look five years older, we lose absolutely everything and are shunned by society or something?

    What incredibly, outstandingly great thing is going to happen if we can manage to “look younger”? And what incredibly, cruelly horrific thing is going to happen if we look our own age? What’s with this fear that “looking younger” is the subject of so many articles and so much (unwanted) advice? Newsflash. We’re gonna age! If I can manage to look 35 today, my body will still know it’s 42. Getting a haircut or buying a better cream foundation isn’t going to stop reality.

    Please, who’s keeping track of all that stuff? “My GOD, I thought you were 43…and you’re only 42!” I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t go kill myself.

    I’ll keep my hair inches in exchange for actually looking (gasp!) (no! oh please god noooooooo) 42. Which is, coincidentally, what I, well, am. (rolling eyes) Whatever.

    I had short hair from about 20 til 40. I had a pixie-type cut forever. Then I grew a chin length bob. Now, at 50-ish, I’m growing it to my shoulders or beyond, so I can braid it or whip it up in a ponytail out of the way. Because I feel like it. Fuck ’em.

    • helenk3 says:

      would you rather look like you had a life lived or a lifeless doll who never had a thought or a feeling.
      Me I am of the OH YEAH life is one hell of a ride and I am enjoying it to the fullest
      until someone pays my bills, take complete charge of my worries. what they think does not matter

      • wmcb says:

        What’s funny is that I have always liked longer hair on REALLY older women. I had a great aunt who was very Katherine Hepburn-esque, and had a soft grey chignon or french braid most of the time. It didn’t look young, or old, it just looked – soft and simple and careless and classy and neat and not-overly-concerned-with-herself.

        That used to be the norm for old women, until society convinced us that the blue-rinsed poofy hair helmet was de rigeur for all.

    • wmcb says:

      My favorite part: “I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t go kill myself.” πŸ˜€ LOLOLOLOLOLOL! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    • lyn says:

      Now 56, I grew my hair out so that my face wouldn’t look chubby. Based on my recent driver’s license photo, it didn’t work.

    • angienc says:

      Honestly, the key is “healthy” because what does look bad and what does age *all* women is over-processed, dry hair (with younger women this happens mainly with over-processed blonde hair due to bleaching — the “cotton candy” look is what I call it). Even a 20-something year old with that kind of over-processed hair looks “older,” it’s just that most 20-somethings don’t care or notice that their hair is making them look 30-ish, while many 40-somethings do care about looking 50-ish and would rather cut it then forgo dying it. They think it is the short cut that is making them look younger, but it isn’t — it’s the fact that they cut off all that over-processed crap hanging down their back and now have healthy looking hair.

      • votermom says:

        My hair is so gray now – unlike my mom who had naturally black hair until her 50s (then she died, heart attack).
        Anyway, ironically, my gray hair looks processed – frizzy and harsh; when I use henna on it it looks more normal (except for being red). Go figure.
        But I agree with you – the texture more than the color makes hair look “old”

        • trixtat says:

          Henna (and buildup) will eventually make hair brittle, I understand. This said, the all natural, lather-free WEN shampoo is the best! Argon oil is also excellent.

        • Constance says:

          They do make a really nice clear henna and so true that henna changes the texture for the good.

        • angienc says:

          Better grey then dying at an early age! (sorry that you lost your mom so young).

          But yes — that’s the thing, the over-processing of hair (even on younger hair) is what makes it seem like older hair because most women’s hair does get coarser as they get older naturally. Pile on bleaching, hair drying, etc and the texture can get really bad.

          FTR –using henna on your hair isn’t what I call “processing” in the way I’m talking about here — I mean harsh chemical processing (especially bleach/lightening methods) & heating tools. In fact, a lot of hair dyes nowadays are made with more natural stuff & are less damaging to the hair.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Recently went to see Judy Collins in a small venue. Still has her long hair. Works for me.

    • votermom says:

      I was just watching Witches of East End yesterday and going oooh over Julia Ormond’s hair.
      Pretty sure it’s dyed, but it’s the texture & body I was drooling over.

    • Constance says:

      I had to go out and find a real job at 50 because my husband got a layoff notice so we lost our income and insurance. I found that you do not have to look young to get a job, male attention, whatever. The thing is you are old and it is OK to look old if you look wise and experienced, stable and current rather than decrepit or dated or out of touch and out of date. The head hunter that helped me sent me to a salon and told me to shut up and let them fix my hair then changed my glasses to look modern and picked out two outfits for me to wear to interviews. I would have never done any of that on my own. It helped a lot. I ended up with a great job and I was still old and still looked my age.

    mcconnell draws a line in the sand for the tea party
    claims he will be the nominee for president in 2016.

    I really hope he is not. If it is Hillary and McConnell runnung it will be the first time in my voting life that I did not vote for a president

    • Chicken McConnell has the freedom to “run” knowing the lamestream will treat him gently. Not completely in bed with him, but sorta OK – because (wink, wink) he’s NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. So I won’t either. He’s a placeholder. When the elections of 2016 roll around he might as well be named Robert Sarvis.
