Halloween Political Humor

You would think Halloween would be the favorite holiday for leftists. After all, you go to other people’s houses and get free candy. But since the entire process is voluntary, that spoils the fun for our coercion-loving statist friends. Which may explain why a lot of Halloween humor has a libertarian bent.

Rationality and Self Delusion – Dennis Prager and John Adams

Some thoughts on what is rational and what is self-delusion. Reason is no more than a tool that can be used for good or ill. Its use. President John Adams wrote that reason depends upon the strength of the self-love of the one who employs it. Self -love empowers self-deceit to cloud the world as it is and replace it with a more agreeable reality. … Well agreeable to the person engaging in the deception anyway. . . . → Read More: Rationality and Self Delusion – Dennis Prager and John Adams . . . → Read More: Rationality and Self Delusion – Dennis Prager and John Adams

Congratulations Red Sox

It was a weird and also a very good World Series.  The Red Sox just wanted it more that the Cardinals did. It was mostly a pitchers duel for the most part, but in the end the Red Sox broke it open. And the Cardinals could not bring in the runs. They left too many on base and made too many errors in this series Congratulations to the Red Sox. And the Cardinals are not down and out. They still have a good team, with a lot of  young talent.     . . . → Read More: Congratulations Red Sox . . . → Read More: Congratulations Red Sox

The Lies Continue On ObamaCare

 

The president and his team at the White House have obviously fixed on a strategy todeal with the fallout of the failed ObamaCare, and it’s fairly typical. They’re going to find someone else to blame, simply continue to lie about it and hope the low information voters and True Believers buy it.

Today, while HHS secretary Kathleen Sibelius was taking the flak for him in front of Congress, President Obama was in Boston, speaking at Faneuil Hall and trying to sell ObamaCare to the rubes one more time.

He’s dropped the ‘if you like your health plan you will be able to keep it’ horse manure in favor of blaming the insurance companies for what he terms ‘substandard insurance policies’ and telling people to ‘just shop around for a better deal’ ignoring the fact that those who have are stunned by the high deductibles and high premium prices:

“One of the things health reform was designed to do was to help not only the uninsured but also the under-insured,” Obama said. “And there are a number of Americans, fewer than 5 percent of Americans, who’ve got cut-rate plans that don’t offer real financial protection in the event of a serious illness or an accident.

“Remember, before the Affordable Care Act, these bad apple insurers had free rein every single year to limit the care that you received or used minor pre-existing conditions to jack up your premiums or bill you into bankruptcy.”

This is an excellent example of the sort of contempt the president regards us with. He knows full well- or he should if he’s going to run his mouth in public like this – that ObamaCare allows absolutely no payments to ‘out of network’ doctors unlike most current insurance policies, so the real risk of being under-insured and going bankrupt is having a heart attack, a car accident or a similar emergency where immediate treatment is required at the closest available facility while you’re ‘covered’ by one of these wonderful new ObamaCare policies..at a price of $20,000 per year for a family of five for ObamaCare’s Bronze policy, the minimum coverage available with with deductibles ranging from $4500-6,000.

Such a great deal! If President Obama really wanted to weed out “bad apple insurers” who don’t provide enough coverage as he said in his speech, he could start by repealing ObamaCare.

Not only that, but the president knows very well that the insurance companies were compelled by the ObamaCare regulations to cancel most of these policies because under the arcane regulations of ObamaCare adopted after the bill was passed, policies that underwent any changes after March 23, 2010 when this tyranny became law are disqualified to be grandfathered, even if they were for choices you made yourself, such as eliminating coverage for maternity care if you or your spouse was past childbearing age or opting to pay a higher premium for a lower deductible.

The festivities continued on Capitol Hill, where DHHS Secrfetary Kathleen Sibelius was questioned by the House. She was there, of course, to fall on her sword as one of the president’s loyal functionaries and take full blame for the results of following his orders. Unfortunately, Congress wasn’t in the mood to play that game:

Hey. you lost your health insurance because of us and the premiums for a new policy are five times as expensive? Whatever.

And her response to Rep. Steve Scalise, who refused to let her get away with blaming this expensive fiasco on the insurance companies is worth watching, if nothing else but to see how Secretary Sibelius regards the little people that Rep. Scalise has to remind her that they both work for:

As a final coup de grâce, at the very moment Secretary Sibelius was testifying to congress that the ObamaCare website had never crashed, CNN ran footage showing it crashing.

Orrin Hatch Enshrined In The G.O.P. Hall Of Shame

Ever since the T.E.A. Party helped Republicans take back the House of Representatives in 2010—along with gaining a few seats in the Senate—Republican “leaders” in both houses of Congress, in classic “cutting off the nose to spite the face” behavior, have targeted them for elimination. These RINO WIMPS (Republicans In Name Only who are Washington Insiders Masquarading as Public Servants) have made it known that there will be no room for principled politicians in Washington, particularly when they upset the apple cart of the Republican establishment. Enter Orrin Hatch. In a recent interview, he refused to endorse his fellow Senator from Utah, Mike Lee, for re-election in 2016, because Lee and other T.E.A. Party members need “rehabilitated“ before they deserve his consideration. Which is confusing, when you consider that Hatch serves on the GOP re-election committee, and claims that he wants to protect every Republican running for office. However, the picture becomes much clearer when you look at a bit of recent history. Orrin Hatch still holds a grudge for having to defend his nomination in the 2012 Republican primary, when he was challenged by 37-year-old former state Sen. Dan Liljenquist, the T.E.A. Party-supported candidate. In bit of irony, Hatch made the case in that primary that he should be re-elected so that he could “help repeal […] . . . → Read More: Orrin Hatch Enshrined In The G.O.P.
