“God Bless the USA”, #VAScandal Edition – (by Remy)


No one, and I do mean NO one, does political satire today quite like ReasonTV’s Remy. His efforts this time combine two major recent headlines, and he makes an inescapable (and deeply troubling) point.

Welcome to the new United States of America, where a people “of the government, by the government, for the government“, shall not perish from this earth:

Retconning reality, the #Obamacare way…

histroy erase 4484

Are you familiar with the term “retconning”?

It stands for “Retroactive continuity“, and basically means when a previously established fact(s) is altered in the continuity of a fictional work. Retconning happens in movies, TV shows and comic books all the time, especially when the writer wants to unmake something that’s already happened, like if a character died and they want him/her back.

But again, …comic books. Movies.

Fiction. As in: “Not real”.

Because you can’t “retcon” reality.

And yet what else can you call this?

Oh, yeah: all those problems with #Obamacare? The Lies? It’s TOTALLY the fault of …Republicans.

AHhh, HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha……………!!!!!

Oh, wait. What? No! They’re serious? Really?!?

But that’s …insane!

(via Mary Katherine Ham at HotAir.com) – “…You have a friend who is a lifelong couch potato with diabetes and a heart problem. He declares his intention to run a marathon with no training whatsoever. You advise him against this, fearing he won’t be able to handle it and hurt himself.

He runs the marathon, almost dies at Mile 16, and then blames you for not carrying him 26.2 miles.

This is the GOP’s obligation to Obamacare, a law it had no hand in passing because it was afraid of exactly this meltdown. …”

The #Obamacare Exchanges: made-to-order for Fraud and Abuse

corruption ahead

This week a news report from CNBC raised some eyebrows, as it highlighted the likely risk of fraud and abuse in conjunction with the implementation of Obamacare:

Scammers have been at it for more than a year now, but consumer advocates and security experts warn that the problem will worsen as we get closer to Oct. 1. That’s when the millions of uninsured Americans can use a health insurance exchange, set-up by their state or by the federal government, to shop for coverage.

The coming Horrors of Obamacare…

An excellent overview of the coming disaster which is Obamacare. We cannot, we MUST not, meekly “accept” it….

A Heapin' Plate of Conservative Politics & Religion

 By Tom Quiner

Newt Gingrich said it first: we’re going to need a ton of new doctors to accommodate the demands of Obamacare.

Quiner’s Diner is spending time on Obamacare this week because it is a reality. Last week’s election results suggest it will be around for awhile.

The reality, or perhaps unreality would be a better word, of Obamacare is setting in. For example, we’re not going to have enough doctors to do all the things the law demands.

A key point of Obamacare was to get more people health insurance. Some 42 million were uninsured depending on who you listened to. Obamacare won’t get them all insurance, but more will be insured.

That means we’re going to need more doctors.

But Obamacare doesn’t create more doctors.

It gets worse. It requires a long list of “free” preventative screenings in health insurance plans. To name a few …

‘Obamacare’: even WORSE than predicted, but the fight isn’t over yet

Obamacare: is there ANY word on the recent political landscape more guaranteed to start an argument nowadays?

Most Democrats and virtually all Statists/Progressives swoon at the thought, since it will inevitably choke off the free market, leading to socialized medicine.

Conversely, pretty much everyone else hates even the idea of it.

From Politico:

Forty-nine percent of voters said they think the 2010 law should be either fully or partially repealed, compared with 44 percent who want to see the law remain as-is or see it expanded further“.

Ledge Psychology

Just got back from vacation……..and really don’t have time (or energy) to post anything today.


Here’s one of my favorite routines, from one of my favorite comedians. Don’t think I’ve heard this since school, and I recall being rather jealous that I didn’t think of it first.

Have a good Wednesday, and we’ll be back to normal tomorrow.
