Tin Pot Thursday Thread

When tea and kool-aide collide, the popcorn starts popping! That made a lot of sense in my head, btw. I just wanted an excuse to use that photoshop.

      Damn! So true. His words didn’t mean a thing cause i saw last night that maybe 7 states have said no. New york’s cuomo said no because his website is working fine. Didn’t at all mention the fact that that doesn’t matter, it was the sticker shock that mattered to those who were lied too. But cuomo doesn’t give a shit and said no. He doesn’t care that people were straight lied to. He just wants to be like the dems and take people’s money.

    Here’s a good Jack Cashill article from 2009 deconstructing Obama’s book “Dreams” by comparing the writing to Bill Ayers’ “Fugitive Days”. I’m not a literary genius, but the comparisons are spooky.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/05/who_wrote_dreams_and_why_it_ma_1.html

    Kinda blows the ‘Obama is a genius myth’ to shreds, an enjoyable read. 😉

    • kanaughty says:

      Mindbliwn! I had never read that before, but heard about the whole water ocean experiences of ayers being projected onto the writing in dreams when ob didn’t have that same lifestyle to recall to for metaphors. Though it is true that you are never far from the ocean in hawaii though. But it still isn’t about sailing as ayers writing is intended.

      • trixta says:

        Excellent comparison by Jack Cashill between the writings of Ayers and of Obama! What are the odds that so many discursive parallels, linguistic idiosynchrasies, imagery, and even similar characters would appear in their works? Cashill makes a compelling case for the theory that Ayers wrote Obama’s books. Obama is an idiot, but mostly a narcissistic, lazy-ass jerk.

      • trixta says:

        [My original comment was disappeared by the spam monster. ] Cashill draws excellent — and numerous!– comparisons between the writings of Ayers and BO. What are the odds their works would contain so many of the same discursive parallels, linguistic idiosynchrasies, imagery, and even similar characters? This could only happen via Ayers’ heavy editing or actual writing of BO’s autobiographies.

    Obama wanted to “FIX” our healthcare system , and he created an ongoing national disaster . Now he wants to “FIX ” our immigration system . What could go wrong???

    • votermom says:

      If Obama & the Dems get their hands on immigration, it will be so bad it will make Obamacare look good in comparison.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      Everything. 🙄

    • kanaughty says:

      It is true. Especially if their ends up being no reconcilliation between the numbers who have lost insurance (who have been responsible for a long time and had a plan they could afford) with the number who sign up. In the end they aren’t giving 30 million new people insurance if they took away at this point already 5 million. I am hoping the millenials are like, this is BS. I am not and cannot afford this and will pay the fine. There is truly something wrong when your payment is as much as a new car payment or rent/mortgage. There is no way in hell i could have afforded it thus i never got a new car when i was first on my own. I had a budget. And something like this would have blown my budget.

      • kanaughty says:

        At this point with the money they spent they could have just given everyone who signed up the money directly to pay their monthly premiums on a an that fit their needs. Instead they had to ruin 5 million peeps plan. He loves to see people hurt just like the shutdown and the ridiculous barrycades that didn’t need to be there. Our prez is a masochist i am just realizing. Probably a picture of an abusing boyfriend comes to mind. The obots and dem caucas just keeping going back for more, while we see the behavior and are trying to leave but we are literally trapped with those morons because of all these stupid laws. Basically i am really sick over obamacare and how it is like this supposed utopia idea. The thing is nothing is ever really a utopia and if it were there are a lot more of behind the scenes sacrifices that are never told. It is like how communism was supposed to be one thing in a book, but in reality a tyrannical leader comes in and uses the philosophy to rule with a strong hand because of narcisism and power. The exact opposite of what was intended.

      • leslie says:

        So this is how out of touch these brutes are…Either Sibelius or Pelosi (I think it was Sibelius) said …”People will just have to budget for it”.
        a$$hats all of ’em.

        • kanaughty says:

          yep, exactly, they don’t even understand at all about living paycheck to paycheck, so they shouldn’t have a choice in telling us to sacrifice so much. better to pay the fine in a lot of cases. and yes, they talk about subsidies, but if you get it wrong on your final return, you then owe that money back to the government. how are people going to get that money back at the end of the year. that is a shitty deal for people who are buying with subsidies, to feel on the hook for a huge tax burden at the end of the year they weren’t expecting.

      BlueCross/BlueShield may be forcing people to use its PPOs over non-PPOs. My acupuncturist is a non-PPO who takes cash. My last claim was sent in after Oct. 1 (Obamacare’s magic date), and for the first BC/BS paid my claim based on its plan allowance of $42.70 instead of the $60 that I paid. I received $27.76 back instead of $39. For years the plan allowance was the same as my submitted charge. I complained about it but was told the plan allowance calculation was correct. Now BC/BS is looking into my other claims where the plan allowance was the same amount as my submitted charge. Something stinks here. I am going to complain to my U.S. senators about this.

    • kanaughty says:

      “savings over being able to see a particular doctor.” That is not what was promised. Another promise broken. This doctor And small network thing is going to really hit a fan once more people realize they have lost their doctors and hospitals especially if now they have to travel really far. I change my doc often because i move every couple of years, but let me tell you it is rare to find a doctor i actually like. I had a NP that i have liked more than most of my docs.

    What’s in a name?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Naw, there’s nothing “affordable” or “caring” in that act, Obamacare is much more honest 😀

      • kanaughty says:

        Iit will become known as the biggest misnomer of a law name ever in us history, when in fact it has become the unaffordable care act. I don’t even know if obamacare is correct when congress dems just went and wrote the bill without his lazy ass. All he did was campaign for the f’d up law. Maybe obotcare, or obamaDemcare. I don’t know if anyone has given this law a “gate” nickname yet either, it should have one. Unaffordablegate or ponzigate or demcaregate….

    While pondering some interesting suggestions from 1539 and Constance on the last thread, and thinking about herrings and squirrels and baiting and switching, I came upon this quote from the Dalai Lama…”If we are demoralized, sad and only complain, we’ll not solve our problems. If we only pray for a solution, we’ll not solve our problems. We need to face them, to deal with them without violence, but with confidence – and never give up. If you adopt a non-violent approach, but are also hesitant within, you’ll not succeed. You have to have confidence and keep up your efforts – in other words, never give up.”
    Keeps me asking, how should this health care/health insurance problem be resolved? If it remains “political” then it will just be us vs. them with no real resolution other than…”OK loudmouth do nuthin”, what’s your proposal? Shouldn’t there be some other way to deal with these kind of issues that affect everyone? Have the health issues studied very carefully from the ground up with proposals developed by professionals and THEN taken up by politicians. Something seems totally backwards. I know this sounds naive but there has to be a bette way to problem solve in this country.

    • Constance says:

      We basically had people who seek to profit from health care conspire with people who seek power from monopolizing health care, write and implement a plan while telling everyone else they were too stupid to understand what was going on and if they ask questions they were racist.

    • kanaughty says:

      Ok to solve: 1st keep all promises made – keep your plan – keep your doctor – 2500 in savings – preexisting conditions etc… 2nd take out mormally choice options and treat them as addons like maternity care and peds. Those make no common sense to charge people for when they are not and cannot use those benfits. 3rd restrict or regulate these insurance companies from cutting corners (like airlines charging for check ins) if the network was a certain way before the law they cannot make the network smaller, period. 4th campaign or give a to. If incentive for ins companies to be in the exchanges. There is no excuse and no choice when a state has only one provider. More choice was indeed a promise not kept in some states. There are other solutions, but i these are the highest and most common sense solutions for now.

    • You are asking the right questions way too far up the line. Politicians, the only ones in place now able to resolve things, are not problem solvers. They are opportunity seekers. We should not have elected politicians, but they promised magic, not mushrooms, and too many if us voters fell for them. We are hosed. There is, I fear, no longer a non-violent solution.

    Selling all of my remaining vinyl today down in Ft. Lauderdale…..what an emotional moment…..been collecting this music and preserving it in great condition since the late 60s….classic reggae, r&b, soul music, jazz, latin….oh well….I love the little record store that wants it and got a very good deal so….bye bye love….now what to do with hundreds of cassettes????

    • The Klown says:

      I hope you are keeping the 8-tracks.

      • Somebody says:

        I have my father’s 8-tracks. My sisters divided his stuff up and decided who got what, eldest was executor but she and the other sister are tight. They split the old silver coins and the little bit of jewelry, my brother got all his guns and I got his 8-tracks and coffee mug collections…….families are so much fun.

        • Somebody says:

          Forgot to add that I was the one that took care of my father during his terminal illness. Eldest sister showed up once in awhile the other two did nothing. But hey my conscience is clear, they can’t say the same.

      • driguana says:

        Yes, keeping my 8 tracks, cassettes, 78s and some 45s, for the moment…I’ll transfer them over to digital once I get all the right gizmos…at the moment though, for example, I don’t have a record player that plays 78s….

    • I gave my son all of our vinyl in 2011 when he got married. He is a DJ and runs an Indie studio on Cape Cod. He is transferring some of it to disc for me. It has come in really handy for him at weddings- seeing as how the parents of the couple are usually around my age and appreciate having at least SOME music from their own era.

      It’s whack a mole on steroids. Like there’s some critical mass been reached on awfulness. I guess it had to happen. For so long the LeftWing Industrial Media Complex has been covering up and outright aiding/abetting this kind of horror, the attacks on freedoms and conservatives. Now it’s open slather. Perhaps the only way folk can be woken up to what’s been going on under their noses.

    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/11/18/why-it-is-easy-for-president-obama-to-lie-to-american-people/?intcmp=obinsite

    “This president was lied to by his father who abandoned him, by his mother who abandoned him and by the grandmother who hugged him, but also revealed that she distrusted men of color.

    Now, he wants to be the only adult in town. He needs that much power to feel safe, because he was that disempowered and unsafe in the past. So, to him, we’re incompetents.”

    • elliesmom says:

      No, he’s guy who realized lying worked to get him what he wanted so rather than working to achieve the next things he wanted, he worked on his lying skills.

    • underwhelmed says:

      No, other people are rubes and idiots who deserve to be conned. That’s the mindset of a conman. You are so stupid you deserve to be fleeced.

      Seriously, enough with making poor O the victim. Yes, something happened along the way to screw him up but good. Doesn’t mean you handwave his shit. Bad things happen and one of two things follows: you become the person who fights against the bad stuff, or the person who turns around and dishes it out to everyone else.

    • jeffhas says:

      Whatever the reason, I personally feel he’s become perfectly comfortable lying, etc. to people…. I think he’s been so praised it has made him extremely confident and smug. He’s gotten away with it for so long it (and the fans so adoring) that it has made him so confident, that he can just go out and say/do/lie any way he wants – say whatever he wants – with a very cool (drama free) demeanor, and most everyone buys it.

    • Constance says:

      I don’t think Obama knows he is lying and that is why he does it so well. He’s probably one of those liars who could pass a lie detector test because he is just stating his newest reality in his own mind.

      • underwhelmed says:

        Sorry, I say he knows exactly that he’s lying and he does it so well because he’s a malignant narcissist, if not an outright sociopath. We just booted two of them from office in this country.

      I personally see with the nuclear option passing that the dems played right into the pubs hand because guess who will be in the majority because of obamacare? The pubs! Those pubs are frickin smart to have brought it to this. The dems are idiots with this move. I bet the pubs are like wtf, they are so stupid! All they will have left is the veto. But i wonder if pubs could even win a super majority that might override a veto because of this debacle of ocare. Notice the rule does not apply to supreme court, because dems know in the back of their head they could lose senate and pres next time around and they don’t want a repub pres to pack their court…. Haha. This just shows the dems have doubts they will win in 2014 and 2016.

      • kanaughty says:

        Also i am realizing dems only know how to play the short game while repubs know how to play the long game. They know what is coming in 2014 with the new wave of cancellations to employee plans.

        • trixta says:

          This passing of the nuclear option may very well be the set up for the “fixing” of Social Security (i.e. another Wall-St. grab) when the Repubs take over both Houses after next year’s elections.
