point of absurdity ...

Ann Coulter returns

Tout ça pour vous Monsieur le Président

In the current fight over the government shutdown, Republicans are simply representing the views of the American people.

Americans didn't ask for Obamacare, they don't want it, but now their insurance premiums are going through the roof, their doctors aren't accepting it, and their employers are moving them into part-time work -- or firing them -- to avoid the law's mandates.

Contrary to Obama's promises, it turns out: You can't keep your doctor, you can't keep your insurance -- you can't even keep your job. In other words, it's a typical government program, but this one wrecks your health care.

Also, the president did raise taxes on the middle class in defiance of his well-worn campaign promise not to. Indeed, Obamacare is the largest tax hike in U.S. history.

Among the other changes effected by this law are:

  • Obamacare will allow insurers to charge 50 percent higher premiums for smokers, but prohibits insurers from increasing premiums for those with HIV/AIDS.
  • Nationally, Obamacare will increase men's individual insurance premiums by an average of 99 percent and women's by 62 percent. In North Carolina, for example, individual insurance premiums will triple for women and quadruple for men.
  •  Health plans valued at $27,500 or more for a family of four will be taxed at a rate of 40 percent.
  •  No doctors who went to an American medical school will be accepting Obamacare.
  • A 62-year-old man earning $46,000 a year is entitled to a $7,836 government tax [Full Wonderfulness]
Why should you have this in your wallet?  Because this is the prevailing argument that even my local rag presents as factual re the CR showdown:

Our say: Government keeps digging holes, then falling in
October 13, 2013 12:00 am
With important issues stacked up on its docket, Congress has so far spent October allowing the federal government to shut down for lack of a continuing budget resolution. This happened because a minority of hotheads in the House of Representatives had the absurd idea that they could force President Barrack Obama to back down on the health care law that is his signature accomplishment. ...

Boob scout


Back in the old days, I was the boob scout for the guys. Still in the habit, I wanted you to have these. Merrily

My mind raced to  images of what a "boob scout" might do  for the guys.  There were no bad images, and I'm still going.

La la la la la .....

Techno Kids

Yesterday morning I watched grandson for a few hours.  We're sitting there on the couch and he leaves, then comes running back with his iPad?  Horry Clap.  The kid has an iPad.  But wait!  I know that cover; that's my iPad (that his mom and dad gave me).  He went into the den, unplugged it,  brought it back, booted it up, and in a flash had  fingers rolling through a screen of Micky Mouse cartoons.  What the Hell?  I don't have any Micky Mouse cartoons bookmarked, so how did he do it?  He's only two, so he didn't type in a search.  I filmed it.

When his dad came to pick him up I told him, and he couldn't find it either.  It turned out that when they were here on Sunday,  his mom had used the You Tube icon (that I didn't know was there) and brought up Mickey.  So the next day he just went to You Tube and had at it.  Sheesh.

MSNBC's Anomaly

                      Meet The MSNBC All-Stars

Ready.  Shoot.  Aim.

At 9 p.m. on Monday, MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show beat Fox News' new The Kelly File, hosted by Megyn Kelly, by a slim 10,000 viewers in the key demo.

By Tuesday, though, Fox News was back to its dominant self, with 573,000 in the key demo compared with 261,000 for MSNBC between the hours of 8 p.m. and 11 p.m.

 It is impossible." Griffin [raged], "I have never seen it. They did election-night numbers in the demo Tuesday." [Full]

Any reasonable person will already know that MSNBC  president Phil Griffin is a loser because, for starters, well, because he's  president of MSNBC.  And just what does "They did election-night numbers ..." mean?  Was he referring to the (defunct ABC owned) Voter News Service that  called Florida for Al Gore in 2000?  While the heavily Republican Florida panhandle was still voting?  Causing Bush to lose a projected 25,000 votes when people went home in despair? Those election night numbers?

Or when four years later
Voter News Service surveys had Kerry significantly ahead in Florida and Ohio, which news was broadcast during election day by networks?  

This is another perfect example of  Liberals in general,  and the Democrat media in particular.  Entitlement.  Entitlement to win. At any cost.  If they lose, it had to be about fraud.  Am I right? 

So,  when MSNBC All-star Rachael Maddow beat FOX,  for the first time ever, and then fell back into her comfortable loser seat the next night, which  would you think was anomalous?   Wait!  This just in.

The other big question (behind Phil Griffin's back) is,  how long before his Alec Baldwin hire  bursts into flaming rage during his new MSNBC show, and is shipped off to HBO for career life support? 

Bizzaro Tomorrows

Bizarre is the new normal

Chroniclers of Pox Obama seem to be in one of three camps. 

  1. The  level headed, polite public discourse (sometimes smarmy)  lot.
  2. The mad as hell, but equally informed lynch mob contingent (ahem).
  3. Knee-jerk hypocritical Democrat apologists, also known as useful idiots.
So hideously stressful  have been  the past, going on six-years, that all of us who are compelled to call attention to, or spin,  each new outrage against the rules of legislated and natural law are exhausted by the process.  It's the Clintons times 100. 

News that IRS official Sarah Hall Ingram made 155 visits to the White House to meet with a top Obama White House officials, with whom she exchanged confidential taxpayer information, is the latest case to addle brains and damage nerve endings. This may be the last time it's ever mentioned again, disappearing  instead into that pit where  all other criminal and reckless Obamunist acts have gone.

We are officially a lawless nation.

I am, and have been a law abiding citizen for lo these many years, but admit to indulging in obscene fantasies of storming the nation's capitol and hanging, oh,  about 5,000 people. A few hundred of whom are Republicans.  Instead,  I find other ways to amuse myself, some results of which you see on these pages.  None more bizarre than the actualities.  There is no more bizarre, only the daily news.

11.5 Million Words

Two Things
11.5 million words and two enablers

-- Bureaucracies in the Obama Administration have thus far published approximately 11,588,500 words of final Obamacare regulations, while there are only 381,517 words in the Obamacare law itself.

That means unelected federal officials have now written 30 words of regulations for each word in the law. [MFCS]

Gird your Loins -- 
Ted Cruz, House Republicans Meet in Secret at Tortilla Coast.      

The deal that is materializing in the Senate is one that Cruz and his House compatriots are unlikely to endorse. But it appears to be one that can pass both chambers with 
 bipartisan support.
