Sad republican site
Here's the most succinct one:
"GM is alive and
Osama bin Laden is dead."
It's a great bumper sticker line and has the added advantage of deeper resonance. While giving Barack Obama credit for saving the American auto industry and chasing down the nation's most notorious enemy, those two boasts also bring to mind the state of the Union when the president took office. Not only was the auto industry about to fail, so was the entire financial system. Not only was Bin Laden at large, his terror network was active and the country was mired in the two longest wars in American history.

Yes, your evil twin has been naughty and deserves a good pankin’. We may have to send Mitt over to your place in his Massachusetts State Trooper uniform to administer justice. Yes, he’s kind of kinky with that pesky old uniform fetish and his history of “patrolling” in his cop car. So, beware his trooper car with red, white and blue lights firing in sequence announcing his awesome presence. You have the right to remain salient, but anything you say can and may be used against your reputation.
Mitt @ Imhotep's pyramid?

<quoted text>Feds warn hospitals over Medicare fraud
(AP) WASHINGTON - Computerized medical records were supposed to cut costs. Now the Obama administration is warning hospitals that might be tempted to use the technology for gaming the system.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Attorney General Eric Holder issued the warning Monday in a letter to hospital trade associations, following media reports of alleged irregularities.
The letter said there were indications that some providers were using computerized records technology to possibly obtain payments to which they were not entitled. It raised the threat of prosecution.
Among the practices under scrutiny is what's called "upcoding" — or raising the severity of a patient's condition to get more money.
Hospitals say part of the problem is that Medicare has lagged in updating billing guidelines for emergency room and clinic visits.

some of the reimbursement rates are so ridiculously low that this might be an expected result.....

my impression, largely anecdotal and subjective, is that the reimbursement for highly skilled care, such as complex surgical skills, is too low...while the reimbursement for the hospital room and diagnostic tests is too high....

That's pretty impressive, too bad they're not exactly useful superpowers or you might have your own comic book.
You'd look hilarious in a Superhero outfit.

And that lump is NOT your wallet shoved down the back of your pants. When you'd fly overhead, neighborhood kids would take pot-shots at you with their BB Guns thinking you were a stray seagull from the Municipal Waste Center.

Really?
You don’t suppose that Obama won the election because he makes more sense to African American and other voters who are intelligent and have good judgment?
African American voters are insufficient in number to elect a president, especially considering electoral voters.
Yes, African Americans tend to vote for Obama, as do other demographic groups, who the Teanderthal-dominated Rapapublicans alienate one by one — women, gays, Latinos, AARP. Who’s left for them?
Despair not, the RCC is the next one.

Now what happened in '64 that mighta caused that? Caused the whole South to go red in one election cycle? What was that???
Hmmm ...
the Democrat party of today is more interested in getting more people dependent on the government, with better benefits....rather than growing the economy so that more people become self-sufficient....the party of the super-rich and the poor....

I think it was disappointing for Mr. Obama being at a fund raising with Jay-z while Americans were killed and U.S. Ambassador, Chris Stevens was murdered, tortured and dragged through the streets in Libya. To make matters worse Mr. Obama apologized to the Muslims.
Please pray for Mr. Stevens family.

Article 1, Section 8
just one example
Clause 3. To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;
Congress has the power to impose regulations on interstate and international business. This "interstate commerce clause" has been quite controversial in the history of constitutional law; for a long time, judges tended to read the clause narrowly, overturning federal laws they deemed focused mainly on regulating economic activity within states rather than between them. Since the 1930s, however, judges have tended to read the clause broadly, allowing the government to regulate all kinds of economic activity—by setting a national minimum wage, for example.

"On every question of construction (of the constitution) let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed." -- Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, June 12, 1823, The Complete Jefferson, p.322

Repeatedly refering to Lily as a lush, drunk, inebriated, I would not CALL truth. Just a fact. And, like I alluded to earlier, you fear truth and so deny its appearance and presence with gusto. That's cute. You should be in a parade or something beating your head like you would a Pinata. Don't worry. The street-sweepers carry Lysol Spray and shovels.

You claim to be unpersuaded and unimpressed by lies but the irony here is that your statement is a lie! You convolute so much you routinely go into convulsions.

And I do know WHO you like: Yourself. You are in love with yourself. Thus, many people tell you to go f*ck yourself. If you want it done right, do it yourself, bud.

Now....pick up your mop, put the bedpan on your head and go tilt at windmills to your heart's delight.
