It’s Tuesday!

h4CE5F4AD


I gave up on trying to sleep so now I’m reading Horns by Joe Hill (Stephen King’s son). I’m up to chapter seven.

I have no idea where my muse is. She’s probably trying to sign on to the Obamacare website or something. Either that or she ran off with the neighbor’s gardener again. It pisses me of because Obama promised me “If you like your muse, you can keep your muse. Period.” I hope I don’t have to get a new, higher-priced muse.

But without a muse I can’t write so all you get is this open thread.

    The James O’Keefe video on the Obamacare Navigators. No matter how you feel about his “work”, isn’t this something corporate media should be digging into?

    • ‘I’m offended anyone would give credence to so-called video news reports offered by rank amatuers such as James O’Keefe. Everyone knows if any type of newsworthy conditions existed anywhere in this country, the experienced and proven news media would be on it’.

    This writer gets slammed by comments for writing an NYT article about how she got slammed on Facebook for complaining about Obamacare jacking up her rates and losing her doctors

        He’s off by about 5 years — NYT has been the Obama propaganda arm since at least the 2008 primaries (if not earlier).

      The “sticker shock” of government mandated health insurance hit MA a few years ago. My local FB friends have adapted to higher premiums, larger co-pays, and deductibles they will seldom ever reach. Yes, 98% of MA residents have health insurance, but it remains to be seen if we have better health care. And the war between the “haves and the have nots” didn’t go away. One of the interesting things is how expanding Medicaid to folks who hadn’t qualified before plays out among my friends. It is largely viewed as “welfare” by those who don’t qualify. And those who do resent the “freeloader” tag. One is a SAHM with 3 kids, a 4th on the way, and a blue collar husband. Hubby has insurance at work, but Mom and the kids are on Medicaid. Mom is very upset because her other pregnant friends get routine ultrasounds. Her doctor says he’ll do an ultrasound along the way, but right now it’s not medically necessary. She only wants one to find out the sex of the baby. The lady writing in the Times ain’t seen nothin’ compared to what this lady is getting on her FB page.

        We’re all frogs slowly being boiled alive.

        • elliesmom says:

          And it’s all for nothing. Few are getting medical care they couldn’t have had before, medical costs are up, more people use the emergency rooms than ever before. I mostly say nothing because we have Cadillac insurance. But my brother has “good insurance” through his employer. He mostly uses the minute clinic at CVS. It still counts toward his deductible, and it costs a lot less. Before he got hit with the $1000 deductible, he went to the doctor. The clinic is fine for some things, but it shouldn’t replace having a doctor, and he’s paying for someone else to use the emergency room for the same ailment he has.

        I don’t see people in the west quietly adapting to the Feds interference in their life like MA people. The Federal government is on the east coast and made up of east coast people with east coast values. Westerners see them as “other” or “self appointed overlord elitists” even “imperial” .

    Sometimes my muse heads off to the museum just to catch up on things….she comes back.

  4. driguana says:

    What I find most interesting this morning is all of the prog articles discussing how Obamacare is really on the right track and once the glitches are worked out everything is going to be awesome…for everybody. I think I’m losing my grip on reality.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I find it funny that the vile prog articles stopped blaming Republicans for the Ocare disaster, now it’s back to BELIEVE in the Lightbringer πŸ˜‰

      That was what Sarah nailed Lauer with, when he asked something bizzare like “when Ocare becomes wonderful, how are you going to feel then?”, she pretty much answered with a “are you effing kidding me!”. I have hope.

      • driguana says:

        Yes, I watched that….not a Lauer fan but I really thought SP was awesome in her response…but Lauer personified how the vile progs are now twisting this….just you wait, Henry Higgins, just you wait….everything is going to be even better than you thought because it’s Mr Do Right!!!!

    Interesting that the Left wants Hillary challenged. I just hope they come up with some better names than they’re throwing out here.

    http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/189919-left-wants-challenger-for-hillary

    Looks like a looming Warren Faction v. Hillary Faction smackdown. Pass the popcorn πŸ˜‰

    • elliesmom says:

      You read it here first over a year ago. πŸ˜‰

    • Anthony says:

      Another big “SCORE!” for the MSM. Don’t expect the Warren Movement to disappear soon. Even if it does, the pundits will keep it alive. Sponsors will pay for airtime more readily during a televised brawl than they would for a coronation.

      • The Klown says:

        Hillary won’t make the same mistake she made last time, and she won’t have to.

        Back in 2007-08 she had to treat Obama with kid gloves to avoid alienating the black community. I don’t think she has to worry about alienating the Native American vote this time.

        But the far left will never support Hillary, and neither will the Obots.

    • The Klown says:

      Fauxcahontas is even LESS experienced qualified than Barack Obama was in 2008, and that’s hard to do.

    • Constance says:

      The Obots aren’t going to vote for Hillary. First they can’t deal with women, then she is old and she once challenged Obama. They won’t even get around to her politics and qualifications before the reject her.

    Bill Clinton: Obama should keep his promise

    • The Klown says:

      Except he can’t. They NEED those people to be forced into more expensive plans.

      • votermom says:

        Besides, the insurance companies spent the past 3 years successfully changing their plans to meet Obamacare rules – they don;t have a reset button either.

      • abc says:

        Exactly. They all knew this was coming. I think the only thing they didn’t predict was how vocal the victims of the fallout would be. Unfortunately for them, tons of media freelancers lost their plans too, so the media was a whole lot more willing to cover THIS anti-Obama story than they are with others.

    • Big Dawg looks horribly ill.
      As for deductibles and copays? That’s another place where people are going to get screwed. Ours have tripled since 09. And are going to go nowhere but up. As I understand it, and I could be wrong, these deductibles are crazy. NOTHING is covered, at all, until you meet that deductible.
      Sticker shock is going to flare again next year when the employer mandates kick in.

      • angienc says:

        Same happened with mine. But some things are covered (yearly pap smear/gyno visit, for instance) without having to meet the deductible.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I wonder if he’s still on a vegan diet ? I think his health scare and wanting to lose weight for Chelsea’s wedding shrunk him πŸ˜€

    • angienc says:

      AFTER he went out & campaigned for it to give Obama the cover he needed to “win” FL, OH, VA & NH in 2012.
      Big Dawg can go fuck himself.

    • abc says:

      Bill. The consummate politician. Gotta love him taking the easy way out, looking like the good guy, tauting something he probably knows can’t happen, knows that his buddies in insurance don’t want to happen. He must be coaching Landrieu.

      No wonder his ratings soar. Oh, the luxury of being in the position to be “the good guy”.

      If he’d said this a year ago? Maybe we wouldn’t be in this mess. But now? It’s just Bill being Bill.

      And what’s with that camping table cloth he’s wearing as a shirt? Is this his “common folk” wear? Can I have it when you’re done, Bill? I need a new table cloth cuz my other one is full of char holes.

    • Mary says:

      Bullshit, Bill. Those copays and deductibles will double under Obamacare.

      And this “gesture” won’t help Hillary, so quit playing games.

    Lindsey Graham now has 4 challengers to primary him πŸ˜€

    http://thesouthcarolinaconservative.com/2013/11/11/breaking-game-changing-challenger-enters-primary-race-against-lindsey-graham/

    Nancy Mace is still my favorite. Sadly, Graham will probably lose the primary, switch to Independent, run in the general …. and win πŸ˜‰

    Saw this on an AoSHQ comment

    Even as President Obama has issued a constant refrain of how upset he is that his Obamacare website doesn’t work and promises that he’s on top of the fix,three 29-year old wesite desighners in San Francisco made a working Obamacare wesite using Healthcare vov’s own code.They did it in only three days.
    The three web developers who created the site, HealthSherpa.com, programmed it to do much of what Healthcare.gov, the Obamacare website, is supposed to do.
    The enterprising young men whipped up their version of Obamacare in just days working in their off time.
    Unlike the Obamacare website, Ning Liang, George Kalogeropoulous and Michael Wasser’s new site shows Americans the info they really want to see. Signing onto their site will show visitors healthcare plans and pricing that is available. All you do is enter your zipcode, and there it is.
    The three are continuing to tweak their site to give visitors even more information, too. Just after their site went live, they added a section that will help visitors find out if they qualify for a tax subsidy.

    Fit all GOP candidates with shock collars. Zap ’em whenever they start to mention gay marriage, rape, sex, or any part of the female anatomy.

    the dirty little secret about backtrack green energy push

    • Much better to destroy the beautiful rural landscape of Iowa with unneeded corn crops, I say, than take a chance if disturbing the deserted scrubland of California’s interior coast range with fracking.

    Applebees declares bankruptcy after offering free alcohol on veterans day.

    maybe proofreading should have done and limits placed on number of drinks offered
