O’Care pot, Meet O’Care kettle
April 23, 2013

We never thought we’d say this, but we feel Kathleen Sebelius’s pain.

Up to a point.

Obama’s Health and Human Services secretary recently found herself in the hot seat when Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus grilled her over reports that ObamaCare may not be ready for prime time when it kicks in fully next January.

ON BEHALF OF SMALL-BUSINESS OWNERS, BAUCUS WARNED OF “A HUGE TRAIN WRECK COMING DOWN.”

Now, we’ve never been fans of Sebelius, but we’d forgive her for rolling her eyes on this one. If the Affordable Care Act is so full of contradictions that an on-schedule debut is proving impossible, Baucus might take a good look in the mirror.

Because unlike other lawmakers — who might justifiably complain they weren’t given time to read the 2,000-page bill before it passed — Baucus has no such excuse: HE WAS OBAMACARE'S PRIMARY AUTHOR.

We’re not surprised to see him now turn on Sebelius. That’s far easier than ’fessing up to the truth, which is that ALL THOSE WHO PUSHED THROUGH OBAMACARE UNDERSTOOD THAT IF AMERICANS KNEW THE DETAILS, IT COULD NEVER HAVE PASSED.

WITH THE FACTS NOW COMING OUT, BAUCUS THIS WEEK ANNOUNCED HE WOULD NOT RUN FOR RE-ELECTION.

He’s not the only one looking for cover. Cracks are appearing everywhere, and the rats are jumping ship faster than you can say “rising insurance rates.”

West Virginia’s Jay Rockefeller now whines that the health bill he, too, pushed through is “beyond comprehension.”

Last month, 33 Senate Democrats voted to repeal the ObamaCare tax on medical devices.

And the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers International, which backed Obama in 2008 and 2012, is now calling for repeal because it will raise the cost of insuring its members.

We’re making progress. At least they didn’t blame George W. Bush.

Carry on the marathon judgit tourney without me till I return! As usual I will share a couple of my secrets with my topix friends:
As I have revealed, if you want to get an edge in the judgit race, doubling up on the industrial strength depends are a must. And constipating foods are a big help!! I recommend cheese and lots of it!! Multiple IP adresses are a must as well!!!!

Senator Rand Paul’s celebrated filibuster of the nomination of CIA Director John Brennan over the Obama administration’s unclear stance on lethal drone strikes on Americans on U.S. soil (which was cleared up slightly) apparently meant absolutely nothing. He has now contradicted himself entirely and stated that he supports the idea of drones killing Americans without charge or trial...

Rand Paul is an idiot.

Really, does the President have the authority to kill Americans on American soil by helicopter? Sniper? Bulldozer???

My God, you right whiners have a fit about drones. You people are dumber than sh*t.

One more time you prove yourself a phoney sonofabitch. You accuse folks of racism but offer no proof.

Chechens and American Hawks, an Interesting Alliance

"Although support for the Chechen independence movement is bipartisan, that troublesome little sect known as the neoconservatives has actively backed the Chechen cause from the get-go: an impressive list of prominent neocons, including Bill Kristol, sits on the board of the Chechens’ principal US propaganda outfit, the American Committee for Peace in the Caucasus (formerly the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya). According to Glen Howard, head of the Jamestown Foundation, a neocon outfit focused on Central Asia, the Chechens aren’t Islamist terrorists, they’re just cuddly “nationalists” rebelling against a Russia that has gone “fascist.”“The Russians are trying to treat Chechen separatism through the prism of 9/11 and terror rather than as a nationalist movement that has been defying Kremlin rule for 200 years,” says Howard. This analytical premise, however, doesn’t seem to apply to, say, Afghanistan."

This may explain why the FBI didn’t put Tamarlan Tsarnaev under surveillance after Russian intelligence informed them that he held six(!) meetings with a Chechen Salafist militant during his trip to Dagestan. There may well be a lot of opportunities for self-radicalization via the Internet for alienated young Sunni Muslims, but in this case there is also a real trail to leading to established foreign groups with a record of terrorism. The trouble seems to be that the FBI ignored it, despite specific warnings. Why?

The propagandist media portrayed Bush in the worst possible light at every opportunity.

They refuse to report or investigate any questionable actions or policies on the part of this president and portray him in the best possible light though it's not deserved.

Imagine the negative press coverage if Bush were the president during the past four years:
1. Fast and Furious fiasco.
2. Benghazi fiasco.
3. Record high number of people on welfare.
4. Boston terrorist attack.
5. Underwear bomber potential disaster.
6. Supplying money to the Muslim Brotherhood.
7. Obamacare unraveling.
8. Tripling the deficit in four years.

These are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

We all know what's going on here. Some simply refuse to see it.

Well Carol you're heading down the right track but to say that Obamacare won't do anything to reduce costs isn't really accurate. The preventive care mandate gives people a chance to visit the doctor for checkups that can catch health problems before they get more serious and expensive to treat. Our healthcare system up to now has been really good at the treatment of illnesses but not so good as keeping people well which in the long run will save money.
Let's also take some personal responsibility and not engage in practices that put us at risk like hitting McDonalds everyday for lunch. I like a good bacon cheeseburger as much as the next guy but I don't eat them on a regular basis.
Would it make any difference if I posted even liberal media websites reporting prominent Democrats calling Obamacare "a train wreck", "people don't want what to do" and "beyond comprehension"?

Because I posted them before and won't mind doing it again.
