When there's some strange smell in your neighborhood, who are you going to call?
The Nasal Ranger! That's who.
"Futurama's" Professor Farnsworth isn't the only one with a powerful smelloscope. In Denver, when a complaint is filed about marijuana odor in an area, the Department of Public Health's Ben Siller is called out with his field olafactometer to sniff around and see if the law has been broken.

I love it.
"OMG OMG the monthly job gains were less than the increase in population,. OMH OMG OMG"
"OMG OMG OMG job gains barely cover that growth on population. OMG OMG OMG".
It takes 90-125K in jobs to keep up with population growth.
So, beating that number by a 220% to 60%, is "Barely".
Flack is such a nasty f*ck that he can't even say something good about a favorable jobs report.
He just can't stand it.

Maddow: Jewish leaders ‘infuriated’ by Bush speech at ‘Jews for Jesus’ fundraiser
Jewish leaders in particular were disappointed in Bush, one calling the appearance “infuriating.”
Jews for Jesus is an evangelical Christian splinter group, a small but well-funded cabal of believers whose faith decrees that all Jews must be converted to Christianity and repatriated to Israel in order to hasten the Rapture and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

Fewer than 50,000 sign up on Obamacare website, media report suggests

WASHINGTON - The wait is going to be a little longer for the official enrollment numbers from the Affordable Care Act's health insurance exchanges. The Obama administration is expected to release them at some point this week but has yet to give an official time frame.
Ahead of the release, the administration is lowering expectations, cautioning that the numbers are going to be low. It blames a faulty website that is hindering people's ability to sign up for the exchanges.
"We are working 24-7 to ensure that the site is working smoothly for the vast majority of users by the end of November," said Chris Jennings, deputy assistant to the president for health policy.
Unofficial numbers have been calculated and it is estimated that 50,000 people successfully signed up for health coverage through the federally run Obamacare website during the first five weeks of open enrollment, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday. That number falls well short of expectations for the period.
In a shift, the administration is considering alternatives, including allowing people to bypass the HealthCare.gov website and sign up directly through insurance companies.
"We are also continuing to pursue additional avenues by which people can enroll, such as direct enrollment through insurance companies, that will help meet pent-up demand," Jennings said.
The federal online application process has been marked so far by serious technical problems with HealthCare.gov since its October 1 launch.
The website was established as the main source of public information and the primary way for consumers to purchase private insurance online under the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama's signature domestic policy achievement.
Some states are running their own enrollment programs for Obamacare and are faring better.
The online enrollment debacle, combined with some people losing their health insurance because of Obamacare, has energized Republicans, who have hammered Obama politically and see the rocky start as a potent campaign issue heading into next year's congressional midterm elections.
Joanne Peters, a spokeswoman for the Health and Human Services Department, declined to discuss enrollment specifics in responding to the Journal report, which cited unnamed sources familiar with the matter.
"We cannot confirm these numbers," Peters said.
"More generally, we have always anticipated that initial enrollment numbers would be low and increase over time, just as was the experience in Massachusetts, where only 0.3%, or 123 people paying premiums, enrolled in the first month," she said of a similar program set up in the Bay State in 2006.
"And, as we have said, the problems with the website will cause the numbers to be lower than initially anticipated," Peters said.
A senior administration official, speaking to CNN on the condition of anonymity, said the numbers reported by the Journal were not official and that final official data for the first month of open enrollment is not ready yet.
Marilyn Tavenner, the official charged with implementing Obamacare as director of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, told lawmakers last week the administration had hoped to enroll 800,000 on the insurance exchanges by the end of November.
It is not clear if it also included enrollments for a large expansion of Medicaid meant to provide insurance to more low-income Americans.
A CNN analysis of publicly available data from the states with Obamacare exchanges showed 59,441 people had enrolled as of a week ago.

The most recent case this comic refers to, of course, is the appeals court verdict upholding Texas's medically unnecessary abortion clinic regulations, which shuttered numerous providers around the state. In a perfect inversion of the law's intent, the judges ruled that “the incidental effect of making it more difficult or more expensive to procure an abortion cannot be enough to invalidate it.” Yes, don't mind that little thing about the clinics closing -- just an incidental side effect!
For more from me on the nationwide attack on reproductive freedom, see this comic I recently drew for the ACLU.

Little girl it take 200,000 a month to expand the economy. Beating your chest over a mediocre report is juvenile. You libtards couldn't squeal loud enough about how bad the economy was with 4.5%-5% unemployment. Now you want to crow at 7.3% how Obama saved the world. I got news for you. It would have done that or better if he did nothing!!!!
