15 Last week, President Obama's pollster Joel Benenson sent a memo to congressional Democrats encouraging them to refocus attention on the
economy and ignore the health care chaos that has consumed the
administration for the last two months. The three-page set of talking
points argued that the media's relentless focus on the Obamacare website
is a "distraction" from more important work on the minds of voters


so. Focus on the economy? the limping economy? sure refocus on that, (please fgs don't 'help' the ecnomy we can't take more help)

17 Almost 80 Million With Employer Coverage Could Lose Their Plans



I dispute this number. Currently according to the DOL there are 204M people "employed". That is how many people will lose their health insurance when Obamacide goes into effect for employers. That is in addition to the 50 million who will lose their insurance from private plans. For a total of 254 million people who will lose their insurance.

21 Slate Doesn't Buy Into This Whole Knockout Game


The knockout game isn't new. It's been going on for years. I remember reports of teens playing the "knockout game" against "Polar Bears" (white people) a couple summers back when those violent flash mobs were all over the country. I'm sure it predates then, too. Amateur webzine Slate can disbelieve all it wants, but that doesn't mean jack shit in the real world.

24 Well, I have a feeling my current plan offered by my company is a "cadillac" level plan. It's slowly gotten more employee heavy over the years, but it is still very generous IMO. I have a strong certain feeling it is that level and will be taxed accordingly and the way my company has been going in recent years, I have no doubt they will dump me and every other low-level employee onto the exchanges. I want to know where the bright line is first.

48 So Rand Paul wants more enterprise zones.

Listen, I love me some lower taxes and deregulations but it's too late for Detroit (which can't enforce it's taxes or regulations anyway.)

But let's look at other cities that might suffer similar fates.
By and large you're looking at cities with robust suburban areas (if there are no suburbs, or the suburbs are too far away the cities have less competition.)

So what you really need is to reduce the number of reasons people move to the burbs. One of those is schools.
School Vouchers would go a long way towards enticing people to stay in cities (or at least not causing them to flee.)

Additionally we need to keep local spending down and hold out against municipal income taxes.

The former is going to be hard if my suburban city is a marker for anything, we can't even agree to eliminate rear yard trash pick up and save $500/household per year (seriously, it'd save $500k.)

Once you start a government program, you can never get rid of it.

licensing is a state process.
Many states already require volunteer work to maintain your credentials. I suspect we'll see either an increase in that or a ruling that Medicaid patients count towards those requirements.

Past that we shall see. I highly doubt somewhere like Texas would conscript doctors, but a place like CA probably is already considering it.

I was listening to the interview on my XM radio when it happened. I turned it off when I heard those words because I didn't want to listen to utter stupidity any longer. At first, I felt sorry for this woman because she was a random, unlucky victim of an attack. Then as she went on, I kept waiting for the part where she said she wanted to see justice done on her attackers, but then she said she just wanted to give them more activities to do because she was a counsellor or something.


I'm not sure if the interview covers the whole thing, but she says that she did not report it to the police right away. The next day, after telling her friends about it, they told her to google "knock out game". Only after that, did she report it to the cops. During the meantime, another woman was attacked near the same area she was, possibly by the same group of kids. Her own stupid ideology possibly let another innocent woman get attacked.

We were told the incredible hardship the sanctions put on the lives of ordinary Iranian citizens was justified to prevent the Mullahs from becoming a nuclear power. That's what the administration told us.

Best I can tell, Iran would have gladly done this deal years ago. They might have even paid for this deal. So our feckless leaders put the Iranian people through all years of inflation, shortages, etc. for exactly what? Nothing, best I can tell.

I'll say this about it though.
It's really weird. The WHO report clearly says "nearly half." But apparently that's bad for the liberal cause so they're pushing back noting that the Lancet article WHO cites says a "a few documented cases." (Which is still more than the 0 you'd expect.)

Now Liberals love them so WHO, so this blue on blue attack against an international organization they normally worship (claiming they can't even read a simple paper) is...interesting.

Ultimately though it's functionally meaningless, drug use is up, prostitution is up, we expect HIV to start increasing, and based on other factors I think it's fair to say there's a bit of fatalism running through Greece right now, so even if those infections aren't "intentional" in the strictest sense, they may be brought about by this fatalism.

There are three main leverages that will be used against doctors:

1. Reimbursements tied to certain criteria ("quality" indicators)

2. State medical licensure- this is already tied to requirements for liability insurance and "credentials" (board certification, etc.). Look for it to be used as a carrot incentive for other "preferred behaviors"

3. Hospital admitting privileges- Hospitals are already dancing to the tune played by the pipers at CMS (Center for Medicare/Medicaid Services) in regard to Meaningful Use, EMRs etc. Look for hospital credentialing to be tied to participation in certain federal payer programs (both Medicaid and Medicare) If you don't accept 'x' amount of Medicaid, you lose your hospital privileges.

156 EC, if no one's answered this yet, a so-called Cadillac plan has been defined as one that costs more than $10,200/individual or $27,500/family. Any employer that offers one of these plans has to pay a tax of 40% (!!) on any difference over those amounts. To make it even worse, these limits were NOT indexed to inflation, so that, given the normal rise in health-care costs, within a few years every employer-offered plan will be over this limit and thus liable for the 40% surcharge. Since this is unaffordable, as employer plans hit this limit, they will dump insurance, forcing an ever-increasing pool of workers who make too much for subsidies into Obamacare until there are no employer-offered plans left.

This will even hit government workers, though I doubt the feds. I've read of a few municipalities already cancelling their insurance and dumping their workers and retirees onto the exchanges.

So this is just like that stupid AMT? How wonderful.... I guess I do not have the "cadillac plan" after all as my family level of cover is not over the $27,500. Yet. I still don't doubt that my company will dump me as soon as they have an out.

After a gay server at a New Jersey restaurant said a customer denied
her a tip and wrote her a hateful note on the receipt, a local family
contacted NBC 4 New York and said their receipt shows they paid a tip
and didn't write any such note.
Dayna Morales, a former Marine and a server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, posted a photo on FaceBook earlier
this month, showing the bill with a line through the space for a tip.
Thephoto of the receipt showed someone had written, "I'm sorry but I
cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle."
The husband and wife, who asked to remain anonymous, showed NBC 4 New
Yorka receipt that appeared to be printed at the same minute, on the
same date, for the same $93.55 total, except with an $18 tip.
They
also provided a document they said was a Visa bill, which appears to
indicate their card was charged for the meal plus the tip, for a total
of $111.55.





Another phony discrimination story. Funny how the MFM runs with it before verifying anything.



The husband said he and his wife have both worked in restaurants and
believe in the value of tipping, and noted that he didn't vote for Gov.
Chris Christie because the governor doesn't support gay marriage.

I may not agree with someone's agenda, but I only short them on the tip if they're either rude and/or incompetent.

The first $1 tip on a large bill that I've left in a long time was after the LSU-TAMU game on Saturday, when our waiter was incompetent and, when called on it by my wife, got rude with us and the manager had to get involved.

190 The 'knock out game' has been going on for over a decade. They started filming and posting it more recently, meaning in the last five years. I was in an AlbertsonsGrocery store around 1999 in line when I heard a thump and looked over at the far register line and saw a white guy on the floor. He said he was standing in line and was hit in the back of the head by some big black guy . No one seemed to know what direction the thug ran to. A lot of this is gang initiation. On a side note, this was the first time I had to consider whether I was going to have to pull my weapon as I looked for the perp. I will admit it was somewhat unsettling.

VA officials have notified law

alert posted on the department’s Facebook page late Thursday.
The
marketing company has established two toll-free numbers that differ by
one digit from the VA National Call Center and the VA GI Bill Call
Center. If the caller happens to dial the wrong number, the veteran is
offered a gift card in return for providing personal and financial

230 They've already tried to connect taking Medicaid patients with licensure for MDs in Massachusetts. In 2010 there was a bill in the legislature that stipulated "that physicians must participate in government run
programs (Medicare, Medicaid, Massachusetts’ state plan) in order to
maintain state medical licensure. Furthermore, the bill states that
physicians “must accept payment at the lowest of the statutory 20
reimbursement rate.” Reimbursement rates would be set at 110% of
Medicare billing."

This is from Sermo, an on-line physician site. 70% of the MDs they polled said that if this passed, they would either leave the state or retire early. It looks like the legislation died somewhere along its journey through the state senate.

231 Let me ask this: What's the rate of infectious diseases amongst radical, promiscuous homosexuals vs. the general population?

Is it (a) higher, (b) lower, or (c) about the same?

Are clear markers of homosexuality strongly correlated with promiscuous behavior?

Are those some uncomfortable questions for the crazy uncle to toss out at Thanksgiving Dinner?

Heh.

248 Yglesias was targeted and beat up because he was white. Because he looks like the type of hipster white pussy who would never fight back. He was punched, knocked down, and then kicked while on the ground.

A couple black guys beat him up for fun and then ran away.

But even then he refuses to admit there was anything racial involved.

And his defense of why the "Knockout Game" is a fake panic made up by racist right-wing whites is ...

1) he was knocked down, but not out.
2) there was more than one punch
3) after being knocked down, they kicked him a bunch of times.

See? The Knockout Game is supposed to be just one punch and run. This was a couple punches, and a half dozen kicks, and then run! Which proves it's all just a pack of right-wing lies!

This is what happens when a barely sentient bouncing turnip is given a public forum from which to broadcast its turnippy mindthoughts.

It doesn't occur to Turnipthulu that the reason it's called the Knockout "game" is because the goal is to "knockout" the victim in the least punches possible. One punch is the ultimate goal, but if one punch doesn't cut it, sure, they'll keep going.

263 Interesting thing about "cadillac" plans. It's a fringe benefit. But it only has value if you need medical care. If you are healthy it doesn't really help you. So, under Obamacare, if you are healthy, you are going to be taxed for a benefit that gives you nothing.

Perhaps they should tax the real benefits of the sickly? Oh yeah, that would be popular. You need chemo and radiation therapy to fight the cancer and the IRS wants a cut from that benefit.

They maybe tolerate gay dudes but gay dudes are dudes that act like girls and the lezbos hate pretty girls because they're jealous of them. So jealous, in fact, that they do a 180 and want to be dudes. So what do they actually love? They love plastic cocks. Man, it makes your head spin.
