Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

"Walked Into a Lamppost? Hurt While Crocheting? Help Is on the Way"

Around 140,000 new billing codes, known as ICD-10, have been added to Obamacare.

There are codes for injuries in opera houses (see code), art galleries (see code), squash courts (see code) and nine locations in and around a mobile home (see codes), from the bathroom to the bedroom.

(Yes, even being bit by a turtle and walking into a pole!)

Health insurers, doctors and hospitals are bracing for chaos as they prepare to adopt a new federally mandated format for medical billing.

...So can someone on the left PLEASE explain to me why they desire this kind of bureaucracy and adding another 300 pounds to an already incapacitated and obese government?

Homer? Lincoln? Leosnana? Heck, even nuc?

Just anyone?

Please tell us how much of the "economic" growth is due solely to increasing government, which is an expense on the economy.
Please tell us what was the deficit when the Democrats took full control of all the purse strings of govenment in January, 2007, and what the Democrats have done to the deficit since.
And, please tell us how the fuck any government that has to continually borrow 1.3 trillion dollars every goddam year just to support its day-to-day existence has any possible chance of surviving.
Wow. I guess someone forgot to tell the CBO since they think the debt is being paid down faster.

On Monday, several news outlets highlighted comments that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) made to the Iowa Republican Party earlier this month in which he mocked an Obamacare provision for being burdensome and silly. Paul ridiculed the health law for forcing doctors to use 122,000 new medical diagnostic codes for describing Americans’ injuries to the government, including for “injuries sustained from a turtle” and “walking into a lamppost.”
The new codes do, admittedly, exist. There’s just one problem with Paul’s claims — they were adopted by the George W. Bush administration, long before Obamacare was even being debated.
Paul is referring to the transition from the ICD-9 — the current system of medical code classifications that originated from the World Health Organization (WHO)— to the far more detailed ICD-10. That’s a change that was mandated by the Bush White House in its waning days and is reflective of changing international standards for coding care. Many countries have been using the updated codes for over a decade.
In a press release from August 15, 2008, Bush’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) wrote that it had issued rules to implement “a long-awaited proposed regulation that would replace the ICD-9-CM code sets now used to report health care diagnoses and procedures with greatly expanded ICD-10 code sets, effective Oct. 1, 2011.”"

This Fox/Republican sham has pretty much run it's course.
A person has the same obligations and can be charged with the same crimes as if they had committed it in open court. You cannot lie, refuse to comply, etc. The congress petitions the court to enforce the law on individuals who have violated any of these laws during Congressional hearings.

Vallerie Plame was the head/top dog/HNIC of the CIA's Joint Task Force on WMDs in Iraq. What other source of intelligence are you referencing.
Search "Bill Clinton CIA human rights purge" and tell us what you learn.... of course, Democrats want to pretend that never happened and Bill Clinton didn't completely destroy our foreign intelligence capabilities. Bush had to rebuild those capabilities.
I anxiously await your conclusions after you educate yourself on Bill Clinton's human rights purge of the CIA.
It was Vallerie Plame's "yellow cake story", you idiot. In fact, her husband was sent to Africa specifically to investigate that story.
Tell us what intelligence the president had that Vallerie Plame didn't have, dufus.
lol! Your turn....

".... SPIEGEL: The German government was convinced that "Curveball" would not be used in the now famous presentation that then US Secretary of State Colin Powell gave in 2003 before the United Nations Security Council.

Drumheller: I had assured my German friends that it wouldn't be in the speech. I really thought that I had put it to bed. I had warned the CIA deputy John McLaughlin that this case could be fabricated. The night before the speech, then CIA director George Tenet called me at home. I said: "Hey Boss, be careful with that German report. It's supposed to be taken out. There are a lot of problems with that." He said: "Yeah, yeah. Right. Dont worry about that."

SPIEGEL: But it turned out to be the centerpiece in Powell’s presentation -- and nobody had told him about the doubts.

Drumheller: I turned on the TV in my office, and there it was. So the first thing I thought, having worked in the government all my life, was that we probably gave Powell the wrong speech. We checked our files and found out that they had just ignored it.

SPIEGEL: So the White House just ignored the fact that the whole story might have been untrue?

Drumheller: The policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy. Right before the war, I said to a very senior CIA officer: "You guys must have something else," because you always think it's the CIA. "There is some secret thing I don`t know." He said: "No. But when we get to Baghdad, we are going to find warehouses full of stuff. Nobody is going to remember all of this."..."

Dispositions are usually reserved for people who can't make the hearing. Issa only wants to know what they will testify to in order to determine if he will have them testify . Both Pickering and Admiral Mullen know that. How dare you question the integrity of men who have served this country
The word is "deposition", not "disposition." And the purpose is to go through all the facts to determine the relevant material, without wasting an undue amount of court time or Congressional time.

Their service is honored, but not their complicity in the Obama coverup.

Benedict Arnold was one of the best generals in the Continental Army until he sold out to the British.

*rolls eyes*

Pickering and Mullen did a hatchet job on low level State Dept personnel while refusing to interview anyone who was higher up.
They deserve ridicule and if you weren't being such a partisan, you would state so also.

Admiral Mullen always thought of Petraeus as an opportunistic arse kisser. Not only did the GOP pick a man who couldn't keep his marriage vows (which would normally be his business and no one else's except that it is a violation of the UCMJ) but his girlfriend exposed military secrets.

I have complete contempt for people like Ayn Rand's arse kisser Galt who disparage people like Pickering, Gen Shenseki and Admiral Mullen
