A Kentucky medical center is mandating all of their employees complete diversity training after a man came dressed to an annual costume party wearing a mask depicting Obama and wearing a straight jacket.
Jennie Stuart Medical Center is also asking their employees to refrain from wearing political, religious, ethnic and gender based Halloween costumes, according to WZTV, Nashville.
PC Halloweens are stupid. How many George Bush, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton...etc, etc. costumes have we seen through the years?

But a Magic Negro outfit is off-limits?

Everyone in a country like ours should have access to affordable health care.

Easy access to the ER and abusing it isn't the solution either. Which, of course, isn't going to change under Obamacare.

The government enforcing a plan to lower costs of health care is capitalism checked, in my opinion.

It protects consumers from getting hosed by the medical profession who adopted a Ponzi scheme to scam money from insurance companies, unfettered greed and passing on the costs of their exorbitant malpractice insurance to their patients just to stay in practice.

It's not that hard to do - very little government involved.

On Sunday, several hundred – or perhaps a couple of thousand – tea party activists, led by such luminaries of the right as Sarah Palin, Rep. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), hijacked a march organized by a non-partisan veterans’ group and held an angry demonstration at the National World War II Memorial against the shutdown that Cruz and Lee had engineered and tea partiers across the country had applauded. Anger and confusion about public parks and memorials – especially that one — closing with the rest of the government’s “nonessential services” have been staples of conservative blogs and talk-radio since the shutdown began.

There’s been plenty of coverage of the impressive hypocrisy of the event, the fact that one man waved a Confederate flag in front of the home of the first African-American president and that a prominent conservative activist who was invited to speak sputtered with rage that Barack Obama should “put the Qu’ran down” and surrender his office.

Those incidents should be called out, but focusing only on those offensive displays misses a more basic truth revealed on Sunday: the utter depravity of a major political movement up in arms and rallying around meaningless symbolism (the National Park Service was already letting vets into the memorial, just not other visitors) instead of the real-world harm they themselves inflicted on American families.

Obama admin knew millions could not keep their health insurance

Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a cancellation letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies dont meet the standards mandated by the new health care law.

One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience sticker shock.

Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.

Name the liar anyone?

It’s a clarifying moment, reminiscent of the Republican primary debate in 2011 in which Wolf Blitzer asked Ron Paul what should happen if a healthy person foregoes health insurance and becomes critically ill: The audience enthusiastically endorsed the idea of just letting him die.

‘Let him die!’ became a symbol of the modern conservative movement’s lack of compassion for their fellow citizens. And Sunday’s march – really the whole freak-out over memorials and national parks – should too. More than a million federal workers aren’t receiving paychecks. Private contractors are “furloughing” their workers as well – and back pay doesn’t look likely – and the direct costs of the shutdown to the government are now approaching $5 billion. It’s caused a funding crisis in domestic violence shelters. The National Institutes of Health aren’t treating cancer patients enrolled in clinical trials. With the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention furloughing most of its workers, a salmonella outbreak has spread to 18 states, sickening almost 300 people. New veterans’ benefits claims aren’t being processed, and the supplemental nutritional assistance program for poor women and infants is running out of money.

As we enter the shutdown’s third week, the damage is spreading to the state level where, according to Bloomberg News, they are now beginning to lay off their own workers and cut services for the poor….

Michigan is preparing to put as many as 20,000 workers on unpaid leave and eliminate cash and food aid to the poor. North Carolina sent 366 employees home and closed its nutrition aid program to tens of thousands of women and children. Illinois this week may issue furloughs to hundreds of federally funded employees, including workplace safety inspectors.

The state-level fallout shows the widening impact of the first partial U.S. government shutdown since 1996…

And with all of this needless pain being inflicted, Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz have the nerve to act as demagogues regarding the closure of a war memorial. Their blithe indifference to real suffering is as plain as shouting,“let him die!”

The health insurance companies that are dropping their customers must also be given a portion of the blame. The policies that are being discontinued are ones that do not meet a standard of care outlined in the ACA. These helath insurance companies have the option to ammend the coverage so that it meets that standard, but they won't because it means that their CEOs might not get their multi-million dollar bonuses next year.

And, frankly, I'm starting to resent every opinion I have about affordable health care being marginalized as an "evangelical Christian liberal" opinion.

Like Reagan, I, too, believe the government has a role in protecting consumers from greed in the market place and in the private sector...as long as health care insurance remains in the free market with minimal government involvement so that everyone can afford to get sick.

There is nothing liberal about that - or Reagan.

There is, however, an important caveat. Yes, Tea Party supporters regard the Republican establishment as having been thoroughly discredited during the Bush years. Yet they've continued to vest extraordinary trust in the cable-news and talk-radio personalities who spent the aughts slavishly supporting the GOP establishment. They get their information from erstwhile purveyors of pro-Bush propaganda, taking their cues come from the same people who enabled George W.

If the White House staffers, Washington think tanks, and establishment-media figures who enabled Bush-era excesses have all lost credibility, why not the movement-conservative talkers who carried water for the same flawed governance?

There is no better example than Rush Limbaugh.

Since so many Tea Partiers spent the Bush years nodding along to his daily radio program, they find it difficult to recall that he spent most of the aughts supporting the very Republican Party establishment that Tea Partiers now vilify. That doesn't change the fact that it happened.
