With ObamaCare™, congress terminated its own health insurance when Obama signed the law and won't have a replacement until 2014.

ROCKET. FREAKING. SCIENTISTS.

The law apparently bars members of Congress from the federal employees health program, on the assumption that lawmakers should join many of their constituents in getting coverage through new state-based markets known as insurance exchanges.

But the research service found that this provision was written in an imprecise, confusing way, so it is not clear when it takes effect.

The new exchanges do not have to be in operation until 2014. But because of a possible “drafting error,” the report says, Congress did not specify an effective date for the section excluding lawmakers from the existing program.

Under well-established canons of statutory interpretation, the report said, “a law takes effect on the date of its enactment” unless Congress clearly specifies otherwise. And Congress did not specify any other effective date for this part of the health care law. The law was enacted when President Obama signed it three weeks ago.

ObamaCare™ is apparently like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to get...even if you're the brain dead jackasses who wrote the fracking thing.

If these drool bib wearing imbeciles can't even get it right for themselves, what shot do you have with this? Expect more hilarity to ensue. Even if its a complete economic disaster, ObamaCare will be providing us with a steady stream of comic relief for many years to come. Even in a depression, people need to be able to laugh, and that's worth something, right?

The real shocker here is that the NYT ran this profoundly embarrassing story at all. It is something they easily could have ignored, but chose not to.

Exactly right. Why, I remember right after Wall Street crashed FDR got on television and told the nation jokes to lighten the mood. Many of us got on the internet, went to You Tube and downloaded FDR's best jokes for our IPODs.

Nor does it keep the contents cold, and they're discovering that they have to eat the same moldy leftovers they were planning to feed us. Most ironic of all, they're the ones who stocked the refrigerator, so they have no one to blame but themselves.

125 Sen. Lindsey Graham agreed to show CBS News first hand, flashing his Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance card. And members of Congress earn $174,000 a year - triple the income of the average working-age household. Yet their premiums are about the same. Pre-existing conditions? No problem for congressmen and women. The rest of us are out of luck. And the elected officials get still more perks most Americans can only dream of. Got a cold? You probably have to take time off work and wait to see a doctor. Not Congress. "We're able to access that health care 24 hours a day when we're in Washington," Graham said, leading us to the Attending Physician's Office, a clinic inside the U.S. Capitol. They dont even have to leave the office. About half of the members of Congress, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, use the Attending Physician benefit. For $42 a month, they can get all the primary care they need - physical therapy, X-rays, minor surgery, specialists and a pharmacy for emergencies - no appointment needed. They also get VIP hospital treatment from the best doctors at Bethesda Naval Hospital. And they have a reserved spot at the elite Ward 72 at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where the late Sen. Strom Thurmond spent a lot of time. Outpatient care is free. Well, free for them. Your tax dollars pick up the cost. Graham says in the current climate, it's just not fair. "If we pass a law that says a public option will be made available, I think people like myself should get out of this plan and go into the public option," he said. That's unlikely. Congress has voted down all proposals that would switch them to a public option

it kinda makes me wonder if some mischief-maker screwed this pooch intentionally

156 As to all of these problems dripping out about our new Soviet-style health scare, as far as I'm concerned, they would serve as evidence enough for me to convict every Congresscritter who voted for the POS of fraud (of the most serious kind and treason.

I would like to hear the GOP pounding on this - thoguh they can use some word other than treason, but they had better get across the idea of a group of traitors who set about to intentionally destroy the US, and did it in a way that no legislation in this nation has ever before seen.

The GOP needs to hammer home how un-American the whole health scare perversion of legislative process was, in addition to how UN-AMERCAN the crappy law, itself, is.

The fault lines are clear; it's Americans against Amerca-haters who are led by a third world, ineligible POS Indonesian Imbecile. People had better end up in jail, or more permanent arrangements, from all this. The ignoring of culpability and intent on the part of those out to destroy this nation must come to a screeching halt.

"to celebrate women’s history month"[NJ] Grade school ordered boys to dress like girls http://ow.ly/1xUig
An elementary school in Burlington County, NJ is under fire after ordering boys to dress up in female clothing to celebrate women’s history month.

The activity was eventually cancelled after a number of parents complained to the Maple Shade School District.

The cross-dressing day at Maude Wilkins Elementary School was scheduled for April 16th, which happens to be the national “Day of Silence,” created by a gay advocacy group to bring awareness to anti-bullying efforts.

Superintendent Michael Livengood told me the event was cancelled because it “caused quite a bit of controversy.”

“I wish that initial letter had been worded differently,” he said. “That was the mistake in the whole process.”

Livengood said it was never the principal’s intent for the boys to wear skirts. “I understand both sides when you read the letter,” he said. “It does say everyone must participate. It does say everyone must wear women’s clothing – but that was not the intent.”

Kenyan official: Obama born here

A Kenyan lawmaker told the nation’s parliament last month that Barack Obama was born in Africa and is therefore “not even a native American.”
During debate over the draft of a new Kenyan constitution, James Orengo, the country’s minister of lands and a member of parliament for the Ugenya constituency, cited America’s election of a Kenyan-born president as an example of what can be accomplished when diverse peoples unite:
“If America was living in a situation where they feared ethnicity and did not see itself as a multiparty state or nation,” Orengo posited, “how could a young man born here in Kenya, who is not even a native American, become the president of America?”
Orengo held up the U.S. as a country no longer “living in the past,” since Americans elected a Kenyan-born president without regard to “ethnic consideration and objectives.”
You’ve got Obama’s grandmother, half brother, and half sister in Kenya saying he was born there; grandmother says she witnessed the birth. You also have public officials in Kenya saying he was born there and even have his wife saying Kenya is his home country.

178 perhaps this is one of the reasons why Lieberman was quoted today as saying "the momentum is back to the Republicans, and THANK GOD FOR THAT..."

Hate him all you want- he boondoggled and terminated the plan for a public option, further dragging out the health care debates, buying time for us to get a Republican in the MA Senate seat- did his vote push along the bill, yes. But did it make the bill more appealing, or less so? The forced reconcilation thanks to his manuevering not only took even MORE time away from Democrats to campaign for reelection, the perceived bastardization of legislative procedure and the perception of "ignoring the will of the people" only hurt Democrats MORE. Better still, the election of Brown and the further disintegration of Democrats in generic polling thanks to all of this mess made Evan Bayh step down. ONE MORE pickup opportunity for conservatives, Indiana.

A bill ended up passing that even Democrats aren't that excited about- Obama and the Dems saw a bump in their strongly support numbers but NOT their overall support- and the HC passage lead to even further increases in support of the TEA party, the GOP candidates in the fall, and government-cutting propositions throughout the states.

He threw a monkey wrench into their legislation that dragged it out and further bolstered conservatives.

Perhaps...just perhaps... he intented to make this thing worse? A backdoor way to really stab the Democrats in the back?

184 Earlier this year a little gay boy decided to spread gross rumors about my very heterosexual football player son. He said he had watched him masturbate, etc.
My son went to him and asked him why he would say such a thing. He said because, "You're an asshole." My son replied, well, "You're a faggot."
Long story short, he is brought before the dean and asked if he called him a faggot. He said yes and was suspended from the team for 2 weeks. They called me and told me that he had called this boy the "f-word". I said , "Fucker?" they whispered, "no, faggot." I said, "Oh, for god's sake. I will reserve judgement until I hear his side." The next morning I march in and describe the gay boy's disgusting rumorabout my son. ONLY because he is in a catholic school and not a public one, they recanted, un-suspended him, and called the other boy in for counseling. They admonished that my son couldn't use that word ever--I asked exactly what they would have done in the same circumstance? Met with silence.
These ridiculous rules about word usage put everyone in danger. Who's the bully?

CNN chief: Others not delivering news without bias
Published: 4/13/10, 12:05 PM EDT
NEW YORK (AP) - CNN says it's in a "category of one" among television news networks delivering non-biased news.
Meeting with advertisers Tuesday during the midst of a ratings free-fall on its flagship network, CNN's leadership said it is staying the course in emphasizing its journalism.
The reassurance may be necessary. The Nielsen Co. says CNN's weekday, prime time viewership was down 42 percent the first three months of the year from 2009.
CNN U.S. President Jon Klein said that based on a format of credible, nonpartisan news, CNN is "alone in a category of one."

The majority of the American people did not want ObamaCare, and even the far left dingbats are finding out why.The Demsside-stepped their responsibility for this mess by exempting themselves from the ObamaCaretrainwreck:http://tinyurl.com/ydwb3mp
And now they're likely up shit creek without a paddle.
Note: (From the article) Watch the Dem kleptocrats scramble to cover their asses:

Congress must now decide what steps, if any, it can take to deal with the problem. It could try for a legislative fix, or it could adopt internal policies to minimize any disruptions.
I said this before: The Democrats don’t even care what’s in this train wreck, they just want to pass it as another step toward government-controlled health care; a system to whichthey will never subject themselves. You can bet your ass members of Senate and Congress will never tolerate the lengthy wait and deteriorated state of medical care they want to inflict on their constituents.

We'd have to stop letting imbeciles vote. Otherwise, we are at their mercy.Voting needs to be restricted to those:1) those who can pass competency exams - and not idiot exams, but real ones that demonstrate a minimal understanding of our government.
2) those who pay taxes to the entity they are voting on (if taxes are laid by that entity). No votes on federal positions for those who don't pay federal income taxes. No votes on state positions for those who don't pay state income taxes, ... (Personally, I would also give one a variable number of votes, based on the tax bracket they are in and the percentage they pay - as Congress and state legislatures should understand that they cannot just raise taxes on one part of the population without that having any direct impact on voting strength)
3) Exemptions for combat military vets.Universal suffrage, with no reasonable requirements, is nothing but sheer idiocy, made for a society of idiots.

he doesn't comment here, that's for sure, but i've heard him use lines that i've read in the comment section before.

Wife went back today for a second mammogram after 'issues' with her first, which came up fine; technician said her breast tissue is 'hard to read' or some such. We got really good information, fast followup, good communication, efficient and speedy transfer of necessary paperwork and referrals. The current system worked, (even for a HMO that some malign as a group). It worked well.

I'm just angry that this group of inept people is placing a bunch of lives in jeopardy and they have no freakin' clue as to what is in the fine print. This is not going to end well for a lot of people. Repeal this POS as soon as possible and escort the 'movers and shakers' behind this legislation to some deserted island, then let the Air Force use it for target practice. I'm undecided whether they should use live ammunition or a live Mark 16.

315 Thanks Wolf. Today in the Cafferty file, a GOP aid and her boyfriend were beaten for wearing Sarah Palin pins. Now, remembering the damage George W, Bsuh and the Republicans did to New Orleans, one has to wonder if these 2 didn't deserve it. So, the question today: Is New Orleans even for the GOP hatred of its city with these beating, or are more beatings in order?

Posted by: Jack Cafferty at April 13, 2010 01:37 PM (V9SYy)

316 178 perhaps this is one of the reasons why Lieberman was quoted today as saying "the momentum is back to the Republicans, and THANK GOD FOR THAT..."

Graham says in the current climate, it's just not fair. "If we pass a law that says a public option will be made available, I think people like myself should get out of this plan and go into the public option," he said. That's unlikely. Congress has voted down all proposals that would switch them to a public option

Graham and Leiberman are pretty good friends....

I really hope somebody did this on purpose. It makes me happy just to think about it.

Now, the wack job right wing extremist media would have you believe that they were attacked because of their political beliefs. What they don't discuss is the fine health care these 2 received, health care that was uneffected by Obamacare. The message here: folks, Obama's health care law works great...as these 2 Sarah Palin fans can attest.

343 maddogg - In the video recorded by the Command Center of Cipol in Creel, a dozen gunmen arrive at the village and with total impunity, massacred 9 members of the family of an employer, including a 14 year old child.

The incident was recorded in the early morning of March 15 in Creel, where they have been previous major killings.

For nearly 90 minutes, the video in the hands of "Punto de Partida" clearly records the faces of the thugs, even when they are using cocaine almost at hands full from a plastic bag. You can also see how they beat and terrorize passing drivers who happened to drive by in their vehicles by the crime scene.

Another portion of the video shows two gunmen intercepting a car and sequestering the driver. Later in the video, the men shoot two people in an SUV.

In the video, gunmen are shown approaching the passenger side of a vehicle to receive what appears to be an order for the killings. A man holding a large gun in the passenger seat also is seen taking a white substance and putting it in his nose several times. -- from Borderland Beat video is from a police camera --- http://tinyurl.com/y3d3lu8

WP: Junior staffers in Eric Massa's congressional office felt helpless about his sexual overtures. http://ow.ly/1xX1c
This account, drawn from more than two dozen interviews and internal documents, shows that aides were accusing the 50-year-old married lawmaker offar more egregious behavior than previously know. Beginning in March2009 and over the next several months, male staffers complained that their boss had touched them in a sexual manner, came up with reasons to have staffers travel alone with him on overnight trips, and expressed a desire to have sex with the men in the office.

386 i occasionally flip on CNN, and i have to ask, what is their fixation with the Confederacy and McDonnell? This whole flap in virginia was so stupid and passed over by the other networks, but CNN has been focsuing on it almost exclusivley in their primetime shows.
CNN likes to portray itself as the champion of the downtrodden...which in their estimation means non-white minorities. Thus the channel innudates its viewers with shows like Black in America, Latino in America, Eskimo in America, and Name that Cracker. I might have made up those last two.
CNN should be in a good position to cover the riots that break out when Barry goes down in flames in 2012.

Steven Seagal is accused of hiring young women as personal attendants whose real job was to serve his strange and sometimes violent sexual desires, according to a civil lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles by a 23-year-old former model who describes her experience in harrowing detail.

Nguyen's lawsuit said she could identify a "unique physiological reaction" that Seagal has to sexual arousal, which could be corroborated by the other "attendants." The suit did not specify what that reaction is.

More egregious than just simple tickle fighting? Gosh, I'm so shocked. And here I thought he was telling the truth. I mean it's just so believable that all he was trying to do was get into a big tickle fight with his staff...

Egads.. ok too much sarcasm there even for me. Seriously, yet another worthless Democrat perv thrown out on his ass. Sad part? Only reason they forced him to resign was because he wouldn't support their healthcare debacle. Otherwise this all would have been swept under the same rug as Barney Frank's misdeeds.

417 Not only funny, but ironic.
The FEHBP (Federal Employee Health Benefit Plan) is "actually"very similar to a health care exchange. Congress members and staff choose from a list of union-sponsored plans that meet federal standards subsidized by the govt (sound familiar?).
So, they bumped themselves off one govt plan onto another, and left a coverage gap.
What was the point of that?
