Wednesday Night's ONT is Something Else, We're Just Not Sure What.

Tonight we've secretly replaced the fine ONT Weirddave usually writes with one dashed off between appointments at work. Let's see if anyone can tell the difference!


SPRING!

Well, spring is here, and that means it's time for spring sports. Baseball? Perhaps, the US is in the finals of the World Baseball Classic for the first time. They're playing Puerto Rico for the championship (which is just wrong. Puerto Rico is part of the United States, why should they have their own team?), and right now the score is 0-0 in the top of the 3rd. ETA USA just went up 2-0

Around here, however, spring means lacrosse, and the season is in full swing. Here's a nifty trick play from the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays (who were crushed by my Towson Tigers a week and a half ago-YAY!).


I hate the Hop, but I'll give them their due, they've been the gold standard in lacrosse for a long time now. That makes Towson beating them two out of the last three years even more sweet.


NEWS

And now for the weather, from our intrepid meteorologist, Elmer Sklue. Elmer?

Farting kids was probably an elective in meteorology school, I'd say this guy passed just fine. It still doesn't hold a candle to my favorite news blooper of all time (NSFW):

“What the FUCK are you doing?” Cracks me up every time.


EVERYTHING'S BIGGER IN TEXAS

Even hearts. Texas Farmers, Ranchers Overwhelmingly Answer Call to Aid Panhandle Wildfire Victims

Last Thursday, after half-a-million acres were ravaged by wildfires that claimed four lives, state officials announced 4,200 large round bales of hay were needed to feed displaced livestock.
By Saturday afternoon, around 5,500 bales had rolled into staging areas located in Canadian, Pampa and Lipscomb, according to Andy Holloway, a Texas A&M AgriLife extension agent in Hemphill County.
So many bales that Holloway, who’s been managing the Canadian staging area since hell was unleashed on the countryside on Monday, March 6, had to lean on friends across the state to take to social media and ask the hay-hauling farm and ranch fraternity tap their brakes.

Stories like this just convince me that I'm right in my belief that we don't need government to “help” us out by taking over, we can do just fine on our own. Even in a disaster the size of Katrina (which was exacerbated by the failure of local government), the evil Wal-Mart corporation had semis full of relief supplies on the road from Arkansas before the rain even stopped. FEMA, of course, didn't know what to do with them when they arrived and shunted them off into parking lots. Gee fellas, thanks a lot.


ARTS AND CRAFTS

The Lady in Blue

Interesting story about recreating the dress found in the grave of a 10th century Viking woman. They used traditional materials (and some modern tools, such as a Lendrum spinning wheel. My wife has one of those) to recreate the dress. It's fascinating what we can discover about day to day life from mundane discoveries. In fact, it was the discovery of a stone drop spindle in Newfoundland that gave the first tangible proof of a Viking presence in the New World. (At L'Anse aux Meadows, which is a long, long, LONG way away from anything. If you're ever in Newfoundland, however, it's a must see. I was there last summer and it's FASCINATING. One of the rangers there told me a funny story about Leif Erikson. It seems that after the Vikings left L'Anse aux Meadows, he returned to his native village in Iceland, he found that he had been taken off the village rolls. He couldn't participate in the governance of the village, he couldn't even vote! He went to the scribe who kept the records to complain. The scribe researched the matter and came back and told him “I'm sorry, I must have taken Leif off my census.” )


VACATION, ALL I EVER WANTED

If Newfoundland isn't your thing, how about a cruise? Modern cruise ships are a luxury to behold, but no matter how nice they are, they still have to set out into King Neptune's realm. Most of the time, that's a walk in the park. Sometimes it isn't. Cruiseliner hit by 30ft waves and 150mph winds

20 Baby Sister Update:

Hey Horde! We're back from visiting Joyce, Hubby and Daughter.

Joyce continues to improve physically: she's able to use a walker to walk 10 or so feet at a time (she did this several times while we were there - truly a miracle).

She's also able to use her right hand extensively: to eat and gesticulate, very wide range of motion. Also wonderful, but her right leg/foot remain problematic.

She's speaking more in complete sentences, but is still frustrated that she's getting names wrong and having trouble finding words. However, her vocabulary *has* improved: she said "paranoid" and "fascinating."

Hubby cooked several dinners for us, including a wonderful skewered-chicken recipe that was both tender and delicious (Aside to CBD: Jamie Oliver's Chicken Tandor). Joyce (and Daughter) tell me he's becoming quite the gourmet chef.

Joyce is now completely off her chemo and radiation in preparation for scans early next month.

On April 3rd she'll have both an MRI and an MRI Perfusion to determine whether the treatment has been effective.

*Please* continue to pray for courage and strength for Joyce and her family.

Thank you!

71 Once I was a sentimental thing,
Threw my heart away each spring,
Now a spring romance hasn't got a chance
Promised my first dance to winter,
All I've got to show?s a splinter for my little fling!

Spring this year has got me feeling like a horse that never left the post,
I lie in my room staring up at the ceiling,
Spring can really hang you up the most!

Morning?s kiss wakes tres and flowers,
And to them I'd like to drink a toast,
I walk in the park just to kill lonely hours,
Spring can really hang you up the most.

All afternoon those birds twitter twit,
I know the tune, "this is love, this is it!"
Heard it before and I know the score,
And I've decided that spring is a bore!

Love seemed sure around the new year,
Now it's April, love is just a ghost,
Spring arrived on time, only what became of you, dear?
Spring can really hang you up the most!
Spring can really hang you up the most!

Spring is here, there?s no mistaking
Robins building nests from coast to coast;
My heart tries to sing so they won?t hear it breaking,
Spring can really hang you up the most!

College boys are writing sonnets,
In the "tender passion" they're engrossed,
But I'm on the shelf with last years Easter bonnets,
Spring can really hang you up the most!

Love came my way, I hope it would last,
We had our day, now that's all in the past!
Spring came along a season of son,
Full of sweet promise but something went wrong!

Doctors once prescribed a tonic,
"sulfur and molasses" was the dose,
Didn't help a bit, my condition must be chronic,
Spring can really hang you up the most!

All alone, the party's over,
Old man winter was a gracious host,
But when you keep praying for snow to hide the clover
Spring can really hang you up the most!

Thank you, Ella

80 Cruiseliner hit by 30ft waves and 150mph winds
---------

Yeah. I made a W->E transatlantic (no vulgar jokes, if you please) crossing in the aftermath of a very grim E->W crossing. Passengers had sustained broken arms from falling. A ship's bell display item, which was on a hanger in a grand stairway, had swung back and forth so hard that the framework was beaten up.

I had a little conversation with the captain about it, and he acknowledged that it had been a rough trip. "Not as bad though', he said, "as the time that we encountered a 90 foot rogue wave". That one caved in the foredeck, and the ship had to be put in for repairs before sailing again.

Later I looked it up, and sure enough, the incident had been well-recorded.

Speaking of computers and chess, Roger Penrose (physicist and mathematician extraordinaire) has come up with an interesting puzzle. Penrose (and while I don't really know enough to really have an informed opinion, I agree with him) believes there is something special about human consciousness, something that current physics can't really explain. He (and others) think that consciousness, the true self-awareness, the "I am" involves quantum phenomena. There are those who think this is nonsense, of course, that no macroscopic system like the brain can exhibit such properties.

Well, I'll get to rambling too much, but he's come up with a chess problem that no computer can solve. But he says a human can, and it's devised to show that human consciousness is indeed showing "quantum properties".

302 Abortion is primarily legal because it is a convenience.

This has nothing to do with whether it is moral or not - one would think this would trump the question of convenience...but it does not, primarily because enough people just don't want to think about it.

Of course there are a substantial number of liberals that support abortion for a different reason. I've found on numerous occasions that if the abortion supporters believes me to be one as well (and I am good at pretending to be a liberal when I want to be), they will eventual opine that the real reason "we" need abortion is to stop all those brown people from having kids. Why, they are virtual human weeds that won't stop reproducing!

316 Tennessee gets extra credit, I think for having "Rocky Top" as its state song:

Wish that I was on ol' Rocky Top,
down in the Tennessee hills;
Ain't no smoggy smoke on Rocky Top;
Ain't no telephone bills;
Once I had a girl on Rocky Top;
Half bear, other half cat;
Wild as a mink, but sweet as soda pop,
I still dream about that;

Once two strangers climbed ol' Rocky Top,
lookin' for a moonshine still;
Strangers ain't come down from Rocky Top;
Reckon they never will;
Corn won't grow at all on Rocky Top;
Dirt's too rocky by far;
That's why all the folks on Rocky Top
get their corn from a jar;

I've had years of cramped-up city life
Trapped like a duck in a pen;
All I know is it's a pity life
Can't be simple again.

Chorus Rocky Top, you'll always be
home sweet home to me;
Good ol' Rocky Top;
Rocky Top, Tennessee;
Rocky Top, Tennessee.


If that ain't the Moron Lifestyle, I don't know what is.

It's difficult to take a high road about immigrant terrorists in London, because London is no stranger to terrorism, but most of its terrorism came from the whites across the Irish Sea.

Many cities can claim (rightly) that terrorism didn't arrive until the Mohammedans did, but that argument just doesn't work in the UK.

353 #194: Please, don't refer to Shepherd Smith as Shemp. Shemp Howard was a real stand-up guy, a quality dude. Shep Smith isn't fit to scrape dogshit off of Shemp's shoes.


Here's a brief history of the early years of The Three Stooges, just the parts that illustrate what I'm saying about Shemp...

It began with Moe and Larry working in Ted Healy's vaudeville act. They later brought in Moe's little brother Shemp, and The Three Stooges were born.

Healy later got pissed at the Stooges for taking on movie work without his approval, and they quit his act to strike out on their own. This when they signed their deal to make shorts for Columbia Pictures.

Moe later made up with Healy, and they agreed to work together again.

Shemp, however, was not having this. He really didn't get along with Healy, and refused to go back to work with him.

This is when Moe's other little brother Curly was brought in to replace Shemp. Shemp, meanwhile, struck out on his own for a fairly successful solo acting career.

Later, Ted Healy died as a result of getting in a fight with Wallace Beery and Albert Broccoli in the parking lot at a bar where Healy had been celebrating the birth of his baby son.

Fast forward a few years... Curly died from a stroke. Shemp gave up his solo acting career to return to the Stooges, because his brother Moe needed him.

It's worth noting, here, that The Three Stooges had a really shitty contract with Columbia. Shemp could've actually done better for himself on his own. But he came back to work with Moe, because Moe needed him.

Shemp gave up a chance to do better for himself because his brother Moe needed him.

So, yeah, I sort of resent it when people refer to Shepherd Smith as "Shemp Smith". Shepherd Smith isn't fit to hand-wash the jockstrap of a quality human being like Shemp Howard.

436 Much of the "wiretapped" "controversy" from the left seems to come down to:

http://tinyurl.com/lokwl6j

"Trump said I blew my nose on a Kleenex when everybody knows I use Puffs."

As for the "Incidentals" I'll repeat links on a couple of willowed comments of mine.

http://tinyurl.com/lxcsrup
"U.S. communications increasingly travel across U.S. borders --- or are
stored beyond them. For example, the Google and Yahoo e-mail systems
rely on networks of "mirror" servers located throughout the world. An
e-mail from New York to New Jersey is likely to wind up on servers in
Brazil, Japan and Britain. The same is true for most purely domestic
communications.

Executive Order 12333 contains nothing to prevent
the NSA from collecting and storing all such communications --- content
as well as metadata --- provided that such collection occurs outside
the United States in the course of a lawful foreign intelligence
investigation. No warrant or court approval is required, and such
collection never need be reported to Congress."


http://tinyurl.com/mfwtsnq

"... NSA's upstream collection -- the latter of which pulls
communications directly from domestic internet backbones. The upstream
collection has no targets. Instead, it grabs everything it can
(including audio communications) and sorts through it for
targeted terms, as well as anything related to the targeted terms NSA
analysts add to the filter. "

485 #453: I hadn't heard about that, so I won't comment on it. I just know that going back to The Three Stooges was a sacrifice on Shemp's part, and he did it because he loved his brother.

When the Stooges first signed their contract with Columbia, they were paid $50,000 for each short they produced. Guess how much they were making for each short 30 years later when they parted ways with Columbia?

$50,000.

Columbia was a shitty movie company; pretty much the one thing they did well was pulling the wool over the Stooges' eyes and convincing them they weren't nearly as popular as they actually were. The Stooges basically kept Columbia from going bankrupt in the '50s. Columbia's movies were pretty much all terrible, but they were marketed as having the latest Three Stooges short bundled with them, and that's why Columbia survived that decade.

The difference being that British law enforcement and the UK government didn't take the side of the terrorists and give them extra sanctuary

I've been told many times that back during the "troubles" that Americans with Irish surnames were given extra attention when landing at Heathrow.

As one of those who would have gotten the extra look from the British customs officials, I would have understood and not found it offensive at all.

LOL. I don't think I've ever even heard of someone claiming they saw the Harding sex tape. That was like a "straight-to-video-trash" sex video. She was pretty much of a beast.

Remember those Olympics? They didn't know what to do with Harding so they let her skate ... and she broke a lace and cried and begged the judges to skate over (which I think they let her do).

If I remember correctly (and I might not) I thought that was the Olympics where the rampant ice skating cheating was going on between the Frog and Russkie judges. Maybe that was a different Olympics ... who knows. I pretty much stopped watching the Winter Olympics around then. The last summer games I really watched was Seoul, which was a disgrace and a half.

I never understood why they are even allowed to vote in primaries. If they aren't allowed to send any electors in the general and have no federal offices they can elect then they really have no business doing anything in the primaries. But ... some people and some courts decided, at some point, that people who have no say in the general should, somehow, be able to effect things in party primaries. "Strange", to put it mildly.

And Adam Savage proves he's a fan-boi with no real appreciation with this clip of Weta's work on the movie. Someone has decided the gynoid Geishas should be a bit weird. Instead of Uncanny Valley uncomfortable, the decision has been to go horror movie kinda. How else to explain this giant two-prong power cord sticking out the the mouth of one. Or to represent the FUTURE another of the gynoid Geisha face opens like a flower to reveal gears and cogs more fitting with an Automata from several centuries ago.

Hmmmm...: Mike Lee Says Senate Parliamentarian Informed Him It Might Be Possible to Undo Obamacare Regulations Via Reconciliation

So, reconciliation -- where you only need 51 votes for passage, and where a filibuster is not allowed -- is usually only allowed for budgetary measures.

It has been argued that Obamacare can only be repealed in multiple phases because step one has to be entirely budgetary in nature, in order to be doable via the reconciliation route in the Senate. Regulation reforms would have to wait for phase 2 or 3, which of course can then be filibustered. (This is why a lot of people argue phase 2 and phase 3 aren't going to happen.)

But now Mike Lee says he discussed things with the Senate Parliamentarian -- who rules on what can or cannot be done via reconciliation (among many other things)-- and it's his understanding now that some regulation repeal can be done via reconciliation too.

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said on Wednesday that the Senate parliamentarian has told him that it may be possible for Republicans to push harder on repealing Obamacare's regulations than the current House bill, which contradicts the assertion by House leadership that the legislation goes after Obamacare as aggressively as possible under Senate rules.

"What I understood her to be saying is that there's no reason why an Obamacare repeal bill necessarily could not have provisions repealing the health insurance regulations," Lee said in an interview with the Washington Examiner, relating a conversation with parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough about reconciliation he had on Tuesday.

Lee also said that the parliamentarian told him it wasn't until very recently, after the unveiling of the House bill, that any Republican even asked her about the possibility of repealing regulations with a simple majority.


...

"One of the things we've been told over and over again is the bill was no more aggressive than it has been... in part because of Senate rules," Lee said. "And the Senate rules are something those defending the bill have repeatedly pointed to in defense of why they wrote it the way they wrote it. The parliamentarian said, there's not necessarily any reason that would categorically preclude you from doing more, both on the repeal front and the replacement front, all sorts of things are possible."

He continued, "What matters is how it's done, how it's written up. There are ways it's written up that perhaps make it not subject to passage through reconciliation, but there are other ways you could write it that might make it work."

The so-called American Health Care Act already looks dicey for passage, with Republican opponents claiming they have 22 or 25 Republicans ready to vote against it, and a claim that even more can be done via reconciliation will endanger it further.

Getting rid of BarkyCare is far more important than the Senate filibuster, which the dems are going to do away with at their next opportunity, anyway.

Exactly. They got rid of it to back the DC circuit court because that was in their political interest at the time, I'm SURE they would have gotten rid of it to fill Scalia's seat if Scalia had died will D's controlled the Senate, and they got around the filibuster through ridiculously absurd "rules" that seemed to appear of their asses for O'Care.

38 Rulings of the parliamentarian are subject to a vote of the body - i.e., a majority can bully their way through over the parliamentarian's objections when it wants. Doesn't happen often.


Heard Lee discussing this point on the radio last week (that more can be done while still passing the "germaneness" test for a reconciliation bill).


For the thousandth time, the sensible path was obvious from the outset: repeal what was passed on reconciliation originally the same way it was passed, then have the House immediately send the rest (full repeal) to the Senate, where the Senate Dems from Trump states who are up in '18 can choose wisely, or not. And where the GOP can suspend the filibuster if needed.


It's called politics. Everyone is put on the hot seat, everyone is accountable.


Best of both worlds (and not implausible, at all): most of the vulnerable Senate Dems choose poorly, GOP ends filibuster and repeals anyway, and those Dems *still* face very tough re-election in '18 for being on the wrong side. And there is only one wrong side, politically, here. The wave elections of 2010 and 2014, and the rebellion election of 2016, weren't driven by opposition to Medicaid expansion.

Don't know the story behind this, figure even the O administration lacked the ballz to even implement most of the law, so just created all sorts of escapes and loopholes.


And it was *not* all passed via reconciliation the first time (I think JackStraw may have done his usual yeoman patient explanation of this history here recently). Some was passed via reconciliation, some via free-standing legislation (unconstitutionally originating revenue-raising actions in the Senate, but let's not quibble).


The "tax" penalty on individuals doesn't exist. Medicaid expansion was *not* the political driver of opposition to this, and is completely unrelated to the most dramatic, immediate damage done by the ACA - destruction of the individual and small group insurance markets.

I have no idea but there was that one 60 vote minimum passed and a bill then passed. Bad mojo so wouldn't hazard a guess.

BUT what i do know is much of the HellCare bill says "As the secretary of HHS deems" so that means much could be undone with Price's pen and phone.

I don't know but what Ryno is pushing is being described as bad by people I trust far more than Ryno.

And it was *not* all passed via reconciliation the first time (I think JackStraw may have done his usual yeoman patient explanation of this history here recently). Some was passed via reconciliation, some via free-standing legislation (unconstitutionally originating revenue-raising actions in the Senate, but let's not quibble).


The "tax" penalty on individuals doesn't exist. Medicaid expansion was *not* the political driver of opposition to this, and is completely unrelated to the most dramatic, immediate damage done by the ACA - destruction of the individual and small group insurance markets.

Well, assuming you fill out your 1040s honestly, there most certainly *can be* a penalty.

Which illustrates another disgusting aspect of the Demunist Left: from Amnesty to "Zeroing Out", they always write laws in such ways that invariably, following the rules turns out to be the chumps, and cheaters win.

Yes! And if only more people understood this. I hope they'll listen to grassroots Republican activists like myself. The Speaker has been working *so* hard. His dedication to delivering another "key conservative victory" on this can't be doubted by anyone.

If you all will just trust in the Speaker to come through for you, and urge your Representatives to back the bill, you're just going to love it. Which you will. When you find out what's in it. As soon as we pass it.

Be sure to call and write to urge passage! Do it today!

And let us not forget that the 60th vote for that was that slimy, lying sack of shit out of Chicago who eventually got the Barky auction seat, even though he lied his ass off to the Senate. Also, there was a vote from Massachusetts, as they had just reversed their law about replacing a Senator (which they had just earlier changed) in order to let that douchebag governor pick one to go vote for BarkyCare.

112 Assume the Trumpsters have a plan. Here's what I think it is:

Mandate has already been gutted, as the IRS can longer fine anyone. No matter what happens HHS head Price will gut everything else he can with his pen.

Idea is to get the House bill to the Senate. If the Ds don't play ball and filibuster-- and they probably won't go along and will filibuster -- Trump will let OCare fail and hang it on vulnerable D Senators in 2018

Posted by: Ignoramus at March 22, 2017 07:05 PM (SIY7D)

113 Curmudgeon, WTF? No. There is a form that has various excuses for not having an approved insurance policy, and if the IRS buys your (unsupported, undocumented) assertions on the form, there is no penalty.


At least for individuals, not sure about businesses falling under any mandates.


So - no penalty. If you claim (truthfully in my and many cases, to be sure) that "approved" policies are too expensive. Farcical. Like so much else in the US these days. But true.

139 Ignoramus, that scenario is just a slight tweak on what I've been advocating forever here.


A slight tweak that's foolishly risky. Keep the initiative, and keep the spotlight and pressure on your opposition.


Just "letting O-care collapse" is clearly not sufficient in a country with such a dumbed-down electorate and no press. And 48-word tweets from the president won't be enough, either.


Repeal all reconciliation stuff on the reconciliation bill. Have full repeal through the House and into the Senate, pronto. Mount and maintain info campaign, without pause, until you get repeal in the Senate, or Nov. 2018 election day, whichever comes first.


Price now runs HHS. The data on O-care's failure is now at *his* finger-tips. No more b.s. from the last administration on enrollments, and $$$, insurance company situations.


Get the truth out there. Document the failure of this law. Reveal the pernicious role played by the insurance companies, who (unlike '93) decided to become cartel partners with Leviathan instead of serving their customers.

Hell, we have an entire federal exchange that was only voted on by nine people and four of them voted against it. I say make the Supreme Court responsible for running what it created and have all decisions routed through them. Trump could make a perfectly reasonable argument that since there is no text anywhere authorizing such an exchange he has decided it would be a violation of his oath to pretend otherwise. And since the court authorized it and created it they can have the pleasure of running it. If they bitch about it then Trump could just ask for the plain text which created such a thing.

At some point a grand gesture like that will have to be made to chasten the court into doing its job instead of legislating. As it is, there are no repercussions for them so all incentives are towards activism.

206 Obamacare was passed through the reconciliation process, entirely, as a budgetary matter; it can, therefore, be undone entirely as a budgetary matter through reconciliation.

Anything less means that bare majorities in the Senate can pass matters through reconciliation which cannot be undone by the same means, so requiring higher hurdles to undo legislation than to do it. Highly undemocratic, well outside the rule of our constitutional law.

The Republicans are a bunch of fuckin' scrotes for regurgitating the lie that Obamacare was passed through normal legislative means by agreeing that it must be repealed by those means.

208 >>After promising repeal for 8 years, Senators are now discovering how reconciliation rules work. Wouldn't it have made sense to have this strategy contemplated, I don't know, 2 years ago instead of days before a vote?

They did, actually. February of last year they passed a very similar bill (minus the wailing and gnashing of teeth) through reconciliation and put the bill on Obama's desk where he promptly vetoed it. Ryan said at the time, and nobody said a word in protest, that this was a proof of concept, that they could get a bill to begin to repeal Obamacare through Congress and they would use this exact process if they got a Republican President.

They did and they are. All this process has proved is that some people have very short memories or they are getting all worked up for nothing.

Ryan also promised when he took the Speaker's job that business would not be done as it had over the Obama years and would instead go back to regular order which is exactly how this bill is going through the House. Four different committees with amendments allowed. This is how the House is supposed to work and something bitched about for years under Boehner.

I expect McConnell, who has promised to have this on the floor of the Senate next week if it gets through the House, is ready to go as well since he helped get it through reconciliation last February.

Some of that is already being addressed in the original bill and the amendment process from what I've heard. Specifically in the area of Medicaid expansion which is part of Obamacare and has been wildly abused by some states.

It was never going to be one big repeal process regardless of whether they had 60 Senators or not. The dirty truth is Medicaid expansion was hugely adopted by the states, including Republican states, and those governors do not want it to be repealed without some safety net.

It's going to be a slow, multi-phased unwind. We are talking about 1/5th of the economy with some things that our supposed allies want. It was always going to be difficult and messy.

229 Ben Had I gather the illegals-related thing is sort of odd. It's about whether the IRS would be required to verify eligibility (i.e. citizenship/immigration status) of those seeking tax credits.


Now the whole tax credit thing is somewhat puzzling. Unless it's a stop-gap to provide relief to the ravaged individual and small group markets, until "normal" (vastly over-regulated and cartelized, but still 400% cheaper) insurance can return.


But it's funny how every single thing connected to illegals, like this somewhat arcane question, leads to the same conclusion: having illegals *gone* solves many problems, and saves many $$$$. Uncanny, it is.

235 I estimate that about 80% of the opposition to Obamacare centers on one single aspect:

The compulsory nature of the "suggestion" that everyone must have health insurance.

The part about "hard-working taxpayers must now fund free healthcare for layabouts and illegal immigrants" is bad, sure, but in truth there already are several other kinds of annoying welfare handouts in this 21st-century welfare state of ours, and this aspect of Obamacare only rises to the level of "yet another annoying and unwanted burden on taxpayers."

But "ALL AMERICANS MUST BUY HEALTH CARE WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT!!!" is a fresh category of outrage that mst people simply can not stand. The government telling I must buy something? Something expensive and overpriced? No. No way.

If the Congress just repealed this one aspect, then most people would be satisfied.

Of course, the kicker is, that without the compulsory clause, the whole system will disintegrate in a matter of months. So, really, that's all you NEED to repeal.

I can't speak for anyone else, but for me the mandate is fine. I actually think it's a good idea. The thing that makes OCare and RyanCare awful is the notion that every health insurance policy has to be identical. They all cover the same items. And they all cost the same for everyone. The only differentiator is age. But everyone aged 32 for example pays the same amount for a bronze plan. Doesn't matter if you're a man or woman. Doesn't matter if you smoke or not. Doesn't matter if you're obese or a marathon runner. You're 32 you pay $X. That is not insurance. I don't know what it is exactly, but insurance it is not.

252 The best health insurance is a high deductible, low cost catastrophic plan. $75/mo covers you if you get cancer. But if you need to see a doctor for the flu or get a broken leg or other shit like that, you're on your own. That's what insurance is. You don't call Geico when you need an oil change. You don't call AllState when you need a new furnace. But Americans have been conditioned that BlueCross should pay for the equivalent of an oil change.

Man ... do I have to quote this again ? I guess I have to quote this again. Somebody grab Ace.

Paul Ryan. 1/7/16. After the passage of HR 3762 ...

"This is the closest that we have come to repealing Obamacare. And now we are sending that repeal to the president's desk. And we have now shown that with a Republican president, there is a clear path to repealing Obamacare without 60 votes in the United States Senate. We are confronting the president with the hard, honest truth. Obamacare does not work. It has to go.

Honestly ... the fucking dude said it. I'm not making this shit up. It's on www.speaker.gov.

Who ... amongst the usual GOP apologists ... will refute this ?

258 zombie, I don't think the 15-25 million people either without insurance for the first time in their lives or having seen a material blow to their (or their business's) finances from this idiocy would be "satisfied" that the mandate (which is not enforced, as I keep explaining, and wasn't even prior to the Trump EO or this bill) is gone.


The mandate turns out never to have existed, as a practical matter.


As a practical matter, millions of self-sufficient Americans who'd never even considered health insurance a major expense found themselves, overnight, unable to afford it.


But it's clear that the worst victims of O-care are today's "forgotten man". Trump himself, during the campaign, made a big deal out of 30% premium increases in AZ and a few places (something like that). Which means he wasn't even talking about the devastated individual and small group markets, at all. Those "markets" saw increases of 300-400%.

This exactly. My cat recently had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor. Technically it was outpatient surgery, since I dropped her off in the morning and picked her up on the way home from work.

The total cost was about $795.00, which I paid out of pocket. No insurance was involved. My vet even gave me an estimate before I agreed to the surgery, so I knew what to expect.

I suspect the same procedure on myself would be a great deal more than that, and I would have no idea what it would cost beforehand. The charges could even be different depending on what kind of insurance I had, or if I had no insurance.

No other industry operates this way. Can you imagine taking your car in for work and being charged differently according to what kind of auto insurance you had?

Do you know who his Sec of HHS is? Do you think he just picked him at random? Price has been the single most active guy in the House working to get rid of Obamacare over the last few years. This is his mission. Of course they know what's in the bill, they know what everyone hates about Obamacare and what exactly Price is planning to do as soon as its passed to continue to take it down.

Seriously, has Trump done anything in the last 2 years to make you think he likes losing or not doing exactly what he said he was going to do? When he says over and over and over that he is totally in sync with Ryan and McConnell and how to get his agenda passed successfully then maybe it's time to start listening to him.

Seriously, has Trump done anything in the last 2 years to make you think he ****likes losing or not *****doing exactly what he said he was going to do? When he says over and over and over that he is totally in sync with Ryan and McConnell and how to get his agenda passed successfully then maybe it's time to start listening to him.

361 Yeah Ace... we already knew Ryan was so full of lying lies that nothing spewing out of his mouth could be trusted.





And it is great to know that the parliamentarian is not totally in the bag for the Dems.... but you know what would allow the whole repeal to be passed with 51 votes? Killing the filibuster dead or assiduously enforcing it so the old farts have to stay on the floor of the Senate and talk and talk til the drop.






The benefit of killing the filibuster dead for this issue is it will lessen the chance that the feckless GOP urges confirmation of squishy centrist judges going forward (all in the name of comity and getting to that magic number 60).





The benefit of leaving the filibuster intact and making Senators actually filibuster is that, like Nascar, there might be fatalities if you watch long enough. Either way, anyone who says that anything in the Senate actually needs 60 votes is lying.

364 #neverskankles, your fear (no phases 2 or 3) is probably shared by many.


In this case, I wonder. This bill (if it passes), plus what Price can do via "the Secretary determines" and possibly other EOs, should break the back of the good ship O-care (which actually was launched and commissioned with a broken keel).


The hardest hit people (up to 15 million or more either without insurance for the first time ever, or being financially gutted to afford it) are not going to see any relief from phase 1, at all, probably. Question is whether the political pressure from the vast majority, who have yet to feel any real pain from O-care (sorry, not considering premium hikes of less than 200% "real pain"), will be sustained.

Yea, it's going to be a bitch to get some of the legislative pieces done but by then Obamacare will be a smoldering mess in everything but name. That might make it easier but there is zero chance that if they tried a full legislative repeal first they would get it passed with 60 votes.

Not sure why this is so controversial. If you take away the funding and the mandates and combine it with the fact that Obamacare is already collapsing the end is guaranteed. Why some people are so invested in going the legislative route that would not work that they can't accept that there is another way that works just as well.

395 JackStraw, as I've been saying for a while, you repeal what you can quickly, have "the Secretary determines" wreak more havoc, AND quickly put a full repeal* into the Senate, where 10-12 Dems from Trump states up this cycle will find out what "politics" means.


A "smoldering mess" O-care already is (actually, it's just disappearing, as a practical matter, from many areas, as companies withdraw from the "exchanges" and doctors/medical groups do the same).


But it's a smoldering mess that leaves up to 25 million people in trouble (10-15 million individually, up to 10 million more via small group/business).


This trouble cannot be alleviated until the mandates (regarding policies, not the requirement to have coverage) that have mangled the already mis-regulated insurance markets are gone. The things that drove coverage up by 300%, overnight, in 2015.


* in NONE of my over-long comments am I addressing Medicaid expansion, which has nothing inherently to do with the destruction of the individual/small group insurance markets, nor for that matter with the degradation of the larger health insurance market generally

Congress has the right to take up issues in any order they want.

Posted by: redbanzai at March 22, 2017 09:14 PM (FTXAT)

430 As mentioned up above in the thread, rulings of the chair (parliamentarians) are subject to appeal, and a vote of the Senate. That is, they can be over-ruled (without that vote, in itself, changing the Rules of the Senate, paradoxically).


The parliamentarian generally plays it straight, and, most of the time, the Senate abides by their guidance. It's a way of enforcing order and giving members a rule book they can plan around. And note: most parliamentary rules go to pure procedure, not substance (the stuff about whether parts of reconciliation bill are germane is actually substance, policy, not just parliamentary procedure).


Things have changed, I'm guessing the Senate is less respectful of its own patterns, traditions, and rules than it was even a short while ago (thanks, Reid and the insane freaks of the Dem party). But back when I was there, there was generally an effort to stay within the lines.


Recall a riveting (really) drama where Robert Byrd was disputing the parliamentarian's ruling (this sort of thing was rare, and all hands on that side of the Hill stopped what they were doing and watched). In the end, the issue turned on whether a particular footnote in the Senate Rules was in italic, or roman, font. Byrd won, based on whichever it was. It was an amazing spectacle.

455 Actually redbanzai, if JackStraw is referring to the Budget Act (and I think he is), then in fact they do have to do it in a certain order. Boring to explain, but true.


And unlike most things, where Congress can change its own rules, this one has some internal mechanics that complicate that. It would be like doing an econometric forecast without having some of your variables in hand.


And for the record, tax "reform" can bite me - until the insurance "markets" have been returned, at a minimum, to status quo ante.


Speaking of which, I have marvelled, for months, at people saying the insurers would need lots of time to get back to pre-O-care operations. ????? These companies were writing policies for their entire corporate existence, nothing has changed about actual (well, close to it) insurance as written before Jan. 1, 2015.


It's only a tiny distortion to ask if distillers required months or years to get back to making booze once Prohibition was repealed. Of course not. And insurers haven't forgotten how to insure.

Of course they do. I don't know why you feel compelled to keep stating the obvious. And so does every 3rd world banana republic in the world. In fact, that is one of their defining characteristics.

Why are you so eager to emulate the way liberals ran things? Do you want to be just like them cause I sure as fuck don't. And even if they did, where are you going to get the replacement votes for the 4 Republican Senators who say they won't vote for a straight replacement? The Democrats? Good luck with that.

There's a reason the Freedom Caucus guys are making a deal on this. Because after extracting their pound of flesh they know, like everyone else knows, this is the best way to get things done right now. Not the way you want or I want but the possible way.

So take the win, make sure they follow through on the follow on steps and move on to the next thing and stop pretending there is some magical legislative way. There isn't.

Ryancare, like its proud papa Obamacare, does nothing to address costs. It is all about insurance coverage and not at all about either actual healthcare or costs of healthcare. The main thing that the government can do to see healthcare costs drop is to get the hell out of the marketplace.


If you look at the portions of the healthcare market that are NOT normally covered by insurance and are not part of government provided health insurance benefits (like vision corrective surgery), the costs of services and new innovations drop incredibly quickly to maximize profits. This indicates to me that government interference in healthcare markets, like government interference in the market for college education, is the main cost driver.

BarkyCare is the greatest offense to America that has ever gone through Congress. The SCOTUS decision on the mandate was the worst in SCOTUS history (and that's no mean feat). Nibbling at this humungous piece of shit around the edges while leaving the body still in law is not acceptable. Period.

I supported Trump from the very beginning and I have defended him on countless occasions, but he is dead wrong on this. He doesn't get any sort of free play to leave BarkyCare in and certainly none of the GOP do.

Jack ... I promised you ... when you went down this road ... I'd always remind you of this ...

"This is the closest that we have come to repealing Obamacare. And now we are sending that repeal to the president's desk. And we have now shown that with a Republican president, there is a clear path to repealing Obamacare without 60 votes in the United States Senate. We are confronting the president with the hard, honest truth. Obamacare does not work. It has to go."

491 redbanzai, absolutely (on govt. increasing health care costs, or more generally distorting markets).


Look at the "cost curves" for generally non-insured medical procedures ...... flat-ish, for the most part. And this, even with the astonishing technical advances we all now take for granted.


Here's the thing - before we can get to eliminating govt. distortion of medical markets, and preventing price discovery, etc., we should really just un-do the massive (separate) blow to millions of people that O-care represents.


If 120 million people were facing what 10-15 million people in the individual insurance market have faced the past 3 years, you can bet that things would have been fixed, pronto (they still might, if not so pronto). Instead, those less catastrophically affected by O-care focus on Medicaid expansion, or the fundamental problem of govt.-induced market distortion in medicine, or .... tax reform.


O-care remains mostly an abstract outrage to most (rightly an outrage, but still mostly abstract). Not so to a lot of us.

When I lived in an apartment my downstairs neighbor had a Jack Russell terrier. She was away from home much of the time, so she kept him chained in the yard. He barked constantly, to the point where the neighbors complained.

So she tried keeping him indoors in a crate. I lived upstairs, and was treated to a variety of barks, howls, whines, and screams. The poor thing sounded like he was being tortured. He was like an innocent man sentenced to solitary confinement and didn't know what he had done to deserve it.

I finally took her aside and explained what was going on. She said she gave him to a friend who lived on a farm. We were in a semi-rural area so she could have been telling me the truth, or maybe she just had him put down. I'll never know. But given her irresponsibility with other pets, I wouldn't bet against the latter.

***

Later on she adopted a kitten who eventually had a litter in my bedroom closet. I watched the mama cat and her three kittens grow up, and was amazed to see that all four of them had completely unique and distinct individual personalities. They were all related and grew up together, yet were as different from each other as night and day. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.

Damn right they have souls. All of them.

520 We are surrounded by heaps of dead horses still being beaten, but neverskankles, it's not a question of somehow O-care having to be repealed before *any* tax reform can take place, ever.


It's a question of *this* cycle. Under the Budget Act, without the fiscal impact of the O-care partial repeal on the books, there is no basis to do the further stuff re tax reform. It's not some inherent connection, it's Budget Act mechanics. Could be any govt. program with a revenue/expenditure impact, and tax reform.


Unfortunately we're just going to have to wait even *more* months to see whether the GOP will fail. If they do - this time, on this one-sided political issue - then I can't imagine what 2018 will be like.

forcing younger/healthier people to buy as well.

By offering policies that are actually insurance and not full of government mandates that make them, in effect, pre-paid health care.

Republicans up for election are in the following states: Texas, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Alabama, Missississippi, Tennessee and Nevada.

531 1945: GOP Negotiators Face Off With Their Japanese Counterparts

After a brief moment of silence for McCain who crashed his plane on the way to the conference, the GOP negotiators huddle and discuss their options in hushed tones.

E. Munster: Let's face it, the Japs have created the reality on the ground and we just can't roll back all of their gains.

McConeHead: Yeah, Iwo Jima and Okinawa are going to be tough. And then the Home Islands, geesh. This might take months and I really want don't want to work anymore 4 hour days.

GOP Member with Brain (soon to be primaried): We told people we would achieve unconditional surrender.

E. Munster: Hush you imbecile. We can't achieve that. I say we call it a stalemate. They keep what they have including their mainland territory. Sure tens of thousands are dying, but hey they're peons.

McConeHead: I have a better idea, we'll start by calling it quits and giving back the Philippines.

E. Munster: Even better is we give them Guadalcanal as well as a token of good will.

GOP Brain Member: Why are we negotiating with ourselves?

McConeHead: You fool, what do you know about winning? Next you'll be saying we could use the nuclear option.

redbanzai, absolutely (on govt. increasing health care costs, or more generally distorting markets).





Look at the "cost curves" for generally non-insured medical
procedures ...... flat-ish, for the most part. And this, even with the
astonishing technical advances we all now take for granted.





Here's the thing - before we can get to eliminating govt. distortion
of medical markets, and preventing price discovery, etc., we should
really just un-do the massive (separate) blow to millions of people that
O-care represents.





If 120 million people were facing what 10-15 million people in the
individual insurance market have faced the past 3 years, you can bet
that things would have been fixed, pronto (they still might, if not so
pronto). Instead, those less catastrophically affected by O-care focus
on Medicaid expansion, or the fundamental problem of govt.-induced
market distortion in medicine, or .... tax reform.





O-care remains mostly an abstract outrage to most (rightly an outrage, but still mostly abstract). Not so to a lot of us.









Posted by: rhomboid at March 22, 2017 09:35 PM (QDnY+)

Two things:

First, I really like Rand Paul's idea of allowing individuals and small businesses to band together in voluntary groups (either already in existence like the NRA and the Shriners or new groups formed in the future) that then would have the bargaining power that large businesses have now in negotiating insurance rates.

Second, most people's insurance costs problems could be solved by removing insurance mandates (which would once again allow individuals to get low cost, high deductible catastrophic care insurance) and allowing everyone the ability to dedicate their own money to an HSA that could go toward paying for their actual health care rather than on insurance.

Posted by: redbanzai at March 22, 2017 09:52 PM (FTXAT)

541 ShainS, I hold no brief for the way the Budget Act works, or even IF it works, but the mechanics are pretty simple and clear.


And more to your point, I doubt they use "dynamic" modeling when estimating the fiscal impact of tax cuts (the part where lower rates help allow more economic activity, whose tax revenues offset some/all of the losses through tax cuts). But I'm not sure.

I'm not trying to be insulting but I'm starting to doubt your reading comprehension ability.

1) Ryan and McConnell used reconciliation to pass a very similar bill last year saying that it proved that there is a clear path using this process to repealing Obamacare once there is a Republican President.

2) Trump, a Republican, wins the presidency.

3) Ryan and McConnell seek to use the same reconciliation to process to kill Obamacare and somehow now you think this is something new and some sort of witchcraft.

Nobel Prize Committee: No One Can Top Our Giving the Nobel Prize to Obama For Doing Nothing
Variety Magazine: We'll Take That As a Challenge

Variety Magazine to award Chelsea Clinton a lifetime achievement award for a lifetime of doing nothing at all.


Next month, Variety magazine will host its annual "Women in Power" luncheon, where it will pass out "lifetime achievement awards" to several lucky ladies who have dedicated their lives in the service of others.

This year, for no apparent reason, Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, will get a "lifetime achievement" award for her service to…well, that part's not quite clear.

But she'll get the lifetime achievement award anyway.

Okay, that doesn't top the Nobel Committee giving Obama the Peace Prize -- a president notable for spending every day of his two terms at war -- but still, come on. Giving Chelsea Clinton a "lifetime achievement" award? At a conference honoring "Women in Power"?

In power? My stars, she's not even in the workforce.

Anyway, this is all super-important stuff.

Other winners this year include Gayle King of "CBS This Morning," actresses Jessica Chastain, Blake Lively and Audra McDonald and media executive Shari Redstone.

According to Variety, Clinton is being honored "for her work with Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which empowers kids to develop lifelong healthy habits."

Ohhhh... her work "with" a group that tells kids to eat broccoli and avoid drugs. Okay, wow. I didn't know she was working "with" such a controversial, paradigm-changing group I never heard of.

What we need in 2018, with more Commiecrat Turds up for re-election than Republicans, and many of the Republicans up for re-election as harder stools that still need dislodging, is a deep Political High Colonic.

256 When its blatantly out in the open is it really a conspiracy? They've been trying to shove her down our throats for a while. Its just that she's a charisma vacuum so she flopped on TV.

Posted by: buzzion at March 22, 2017 05:58 PM (z/Ubi)


They're trying to fluff her, but there's nothing to fluff. It's like adding air to a vacuum, add some nothing, top it with bupkis and then then whisk it with one of those wire whisks things until stiff. BUT THERE'S NOTHING THERE. Not even fluff.

And it is amazing to me how they're all smiling and nodding like they don't notice. It's infuriating to watch. Because you know she's going to be foisted on the country as a senator or a representative or mayor or some damn thing, and then oh crap, here come the Clintons again with their corrupt pay-for-play crap. Again. Groan. Puke.

391 I actually read the Schultz statement the day it was issued by Starbucks. To my astonishment, it specified foreigners who'd worked with our forces overseas as targets of their new hiring pledge.


I instantly wondered how much internal friction he got on that point, if the policy was actually discussed within management. Can only imagine the pained, angry Starbucks types contesting such an icky thing to do - helping foreigners (blessed, by definition, well apart from Israelis) who had collaborated with Amerikkka (evil, by definition) in our icky, illegal wars.


Pretty sure the jaw-droppingly idiotic "let's talk about race" thing was, believe it or not, actually discussed and approved by the senior management (before being dropped nearly instantly due to ridicule and general hilarity).


A group that would think *that* was a good idea just can't be too comfortable with hiring guys who were interpeters for the Marines in Iraq.

405 Mediaite is running a story that Trump lawyers ordered a 17 year old girl to shut down a joke wesite showing Trump being punched by kittens. At the end of the story they add that a PR firm repping Trump said no one ever called them about the story though Mediaite says they did indeed call and the PR firm says the story is simply untrue altogether. It is added that the website in question was registered today seemingly in opposition to the laws of space and time and a related link is now registered to a porn provider. The entire story really means nothing regardless if true, half-true, false, libelous, or whatever.
The interesting thing about it all is the rabid Trump Derangement Syndrome in the comments. Those people are more than stupid and some threaten serious violence to anyone sounding even remotely incredulous of the story.

Everyone plans for four years and then the Dems will take back the White House, but they forget how much can happen in four years, particularly with someone who isn't fit now.

Take the Supreme Court. Everyone looks at Ginsberg to step down or die, but Sonia Sotomayor isn't looking well. I noticed how cordial she was to PDT at the Inaugural Address, but I thought she limped and has gotten stooped in the shoulders. She has Type 1 diabetes if IRCC.

Every election is different. Remember all the experts saying Ohio was a swing state and Trump won it by 9. Same for Iowa.

The only way Hillary would have won in 2008 was if it was a 3 way race with a Libertarian/3rd Party candidate getting a bunch of attention, cough, Ross Perot, cough Gary Johnson.

Turkey's Islamist Tyrant Erdogan: Europeans Will Not Walk Safely Down Their Own Streets Until They Change Their Policies To My Liking

This said on the day of what appears to be an Islamist "marauding attack" in London that killed four and injured 20, including some visiting French schoolchildren.

(BTW, early reports naming the attacker as a Jamaican Islamic convert and murder-cleric seem to be wrong; sources say that guy is still in jaii.)

On to the Hamas-arming Erdogan and his new threats against Europe:

President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that Europeans would not be able to walk safely on the streets if they kept up their current attitude towards Turkey, his latest salvo in a row over campaigning by Turkish politicians in Europe.

Turkey has been embroiled in a dispute with Germany and the Netherlands over campaign appearances by Turkish officials seeking to drum up support for an April 16 referendum that could boost Erdogan's powers.

Ankara has accused its European allies of using "Nazi methods" by banning Turkish ministers from addressing rallies in Europe over security concerns. The comments have led to a sharp deterioration in ties with the European Union, which Turkey still aspires to join.

"Turkey is not a country you can pull and push around, not a country whose citizens you can drag on the ground," Erdogan said at an event for Turkish journalists in Ankara, in comments broadcast live on national television.

"If Europe continues this way, no European in any part of the world can walk safely on the streets. Europe will be damaged by this. We, as Turkey, call on Europe to respect human rights and democracy," he said.

====================

Wow...so he seems to be threatening sovereign powers and their citizens unless they change internal policy.

Um...I don't subscribe to thinking everything is a call for war...but that seems oddly like a call for war.

201 BTW, it was Europe that promoted the islamicization of Turkey and the continued rise of Erdogan. It was the EU that pressured Turkey to amend its Constitution to take supreme power away from the secular military in order to be considered for EU membership (which was just a joke because the EU was never going to offer Turkey membership - which is the correct thing but the EU didn't have to break secular Turkey just for fun).

Erdogan owes his long-running tyranny to the EU. They made him. They have to live with him.

207 Why do the same people who complain about Putin never do it with Erdogan?

Let us look at this honestly:

1. Erdogan is making threats against Europe and its neighbors
2. Erdogan has been meddling in Syria and Iraq
3. Erdogan has talked a lot about past empires
4. Erdogan has won some rather questionable elections
5. Erdogan has increased his own powers
6. Erdogan has demanded bribes to behave

I mean yet one is the enemy of NATO and the other for some strange reason is still in NATO. And you wonder why some of us view NATO as a farcical alliance system. Even worse unlike Putin, Erdogan is a Islamist!

American military and foreign policy planners need to wake up the reality of today, and stop pretending it is 1980. One prime example: Turkey is not an ally.

303 Back a thread --

These press idiots seem to be taking this whole "wiretap" thing very literally. They do realize no one "taps" into "wires" anymore, so when PDT said wiretap he was using a term which meant any electronic monitoring of communications.

I mean, they seem to be saying that while there may have been monitoring of communications, there was no wiretapping because there was no monitoring of phone lines in Trump Tower, but even if that was happening, it would not be literal "wire - tapping" where you take a wire and tap into it with another wire.

372 "Turkey has long been one of the top Israeli tourist destinations.
Israelis loved Turkey. And Turkey had been a very reliable and strong
ally of Israel through the end of the 20th century."

A goodly chunk of the Turkish military's armor consists of older American tanks with the Israeli "Magach" upgrade package. There are many similar instances.

Turkey was never a strong Ally of Israel. Did they ever vote with Israel in the UN? Their basic mutual interest was they had the same enemies and most of their cooperation was on a military basis.
The travel part was not because the turks loved the Israelis, but because it was cheap and close for Israelis to travel there. And t he Turks were happy to have the Israeli money.

So, even if true I do not care if Russia did what the Democrats are accusing them of. If true, they made nothing up.

I should have said "its big resource". I don't know what the trade with water is but Turkey is where it's all at. This has been a big thing in the middle east for some time.

Interesting about a proposed "EU army", particularly if it exists outside of NATO. Turkey, along with Albania, Norway, and Iceland (soon to be joined by the UK), are the only non-EU members in Europe that are part of NATO.

If there is an "EU army" split from US & UK lead NATO, than the US would be obliged to side with Turkey (if the EU makes the first move), against the EU.

Now that would be some interesting wargaming!

Eighty people including George Soros, Steven Rockefeller and Abigail Disney wrote to lawmakers and Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo saying they and other top earners should pay more to support schools, roads, bridges and programs to help poor and homeless residents of the state.

“Now is the time to invest in the long-term economic viability of New York,” the letter reads. “We need to invest in pathways out of poverty and up the economic ladder for all of our fellow citizens, including strong public education from pre-K to college. And, we need to invest in the fragile bridges, tunnels, waterlines, public buildings, and roads that we all depend on.”

The letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, endorses a plan that would create new, higher income tax brackets for top earners to raise a projected $2 billion.

As horrid as Obamunist foreign policy was, it was an understandable--if utterly wrongheaded--backlash against the goo-goo-for-globalism of the Bushyrovies.

Although deciding where the Obamunist was more treasonous, foreign or domestic policy, is a close call, I still say the Obamunist was far more damaging deadly at home than Abroad, from inciting race riots and pitting Citizen against Citizen and non-Citizen, to Making Welfare Parasitism Cool Again.

I think I see the Left's befriending Islam as a Molotov-Ribbentrop pact for the 21st century.

The Bushyrovies saw their globalism as America wielding a Ring Of Power that could Rremake The World In Their Desired Image.

The Obamunists brought back the view of America as a Pitiful Helpless Giant, which deserved whatever the Turd World sent its way as payback for past sins.

So what's focking stopping them?? Is there some law that says they may not pay more than the minimum the IRS will allow? Or do they not really want to pay more themselves, but want those just slightly above and below them (especially them, the crass social-climbers) on the economic ladder to pay, and pay dearly?

Nunes Press Conference Bullet Points

Just quick notes. Many of these are not exact quotes. They're as close as I could get them on a first pass-through. If there are quotes around a statement, that means it's closer to being an exact quote; no quotes means it's closer to a paraphrase.
