    Since when were journalists supposed to seek truth, unless it hurts the feelings of someone in power? Telling the truth would have been respecting the office of the president by exposing what a liar and cheat the current occupant is, in hopes that people would make a better choice the next time. But frankly, I’m not sure her being allowed to say it would have done much, because those who are interested in facts and reality already knew what she was talking about, and everyone in support of Obamacare already had their heads in the sand because they liked the promise of free goodies.

    I think he knows it’s too late for us anyway, so he doesn’t care now if he explains the fraud that was wrought on the stupid.

    Being swallowed up into the ocean is probably somewhere around number 32,123,645 on the list of urgent problems facing Myanmar. This kind of crap may work on stupid, spoiled kids here, but most of them were probably thinking about how much longer he would talk because they still had chores to do or still needed to figure out where their next meal was coming from. What a jerk.

    Ya Lopez, the real problem our country faces is not enough people think they’re being discriminated against, and we need to find more?

    You’re right, they won’t. They’re from the Mitt Romney school of politics – make every attempt to look different from the Dems, but really just do the same stuff. Hopefully all of you who claim we’d be so much better under Romney read the sister story to this one about how he perpetuated the fraud on the federal government to pay for Obamacare’s predecessor plan in MA. Please tell me again who wasted their vote? Was it me on Ron Paul or you on Romney the RINO?

    Good heavens, we’re doing everything we can to make sure kids can’t have fun at school, aren’t we?! Boys can’t play cops and robbers because of simluated violence and hand-simulated guns, definitely can’t play cowboys and indians for the same reason and because it’s racist, and now we can’t just play a game of basketball without practicing our spelling, grammar, and math in the process? You’re going to teach an entire generation of kids to hate sports, and that will make the obesity epidemic worse. If Michelle actually cared about people’s health, she’d be adamantly opposed to this, but she really just wants to control your food supply, so she won’t say anything about this.

    The article said the victims and perps knew each other, so maybe they couldn’t be armed because they all have rap sheets. I hope not, but I agree that it’s great he at least paid a little for his bad choice. I’d be happier if I thought he’d learn from the experience, but odds are he won’t, except maybe to eliminate the witnesses/potential resistance next time.

    When the term “pothead” has already been coined to describe the phenomenon you “discovered,” it seems the research was a little behind the times. I don’t understand why time is wasted researching the self-evident. In other news, staring at the sun is bad for your eyes!

    The sad thing is, this all feels like an exercise in futility. I mean, the idiots who were fooled aren’t watching or listening well enough to hear Gruber openly say he played them. That’s why he said it. He knows it will irritate those who already were well enough informed to hate the president and Obamacare, but who cares, they weren’t voting for Dems anyway. The idiots who put them in office still don’t know they were played.

    “He said rushing the law through the Senate created a law that had “some typos” in it.”
    You mean, there’s wisdom in our elected officials taking some time to deliberate the bills on which they vote? I thought we had to pass it so we could find out what’s in it!
    What an elitist jerk. I hope he dies while waiting for the IPAB to approve lifesaving treatment for him. That would be some serious karma!

    The sick thing is, these increases, which only average 5ish percent, are insufficient to maintain viability for the insurers. This is, of course, by design, to pave the way to single payer. They may try to blame Republicans for it, but I think you’ll see artificially low increases until after the 2016 election, then we’ll really see what the cost is.

    Don’t feel bad Texas Tech, it’s really no better than at most other universities around the country. On second thought, you should feel bad, because you are failures, and the fact that almost all other universities are failures is no consolation.

    I love when the progressives tout the failings of the free market system as the cause of the current economic problems. I usually respond by asking a few questions about how free the market is, or when was the last time we saw one. I contend that the last truly free market was pre-FDR, during the 1920s, incidentally the last time we saw a fast recovery from an economic downturn. If they don’t believe you, start asking questions like, “So the banks are free to lend to anyone they want and to sell their assets to anyone at whatever price they want to?” Most have no clue and have to admit so, but if happen upon a knowledgeable progressive (slightly more common than the Easter Bunny), they’ll realize there’s no such thing as a free market.

    One more thing, I’m pretty sure someone this idiotic has plenty of performance issues one could fire her for, so let’s quit trolling everyone’s twitter feed and start evaluating performance, because I doubt she’s qualified to do anything in an academic setting.
    Oh, and please don’t start with the arguments about what if my kid were in the class. I think it’s good for my kids to be exposed to imbeciles, especially ones in power, so they learn healthy hatred for authority of one person over another and so they learn how to deal with stupid people, which is a skill they will certainly need in our country these days. This may mean that I need to teach my kid what they were supposed to have learned in her class, but that’s ok. Frankly, school merely reinforces what I teach my kids anyway, not the other way around (and any teacher who really understands their profession knows this is true).

    I’m with you Quentin. She’s a piece of trash, to be sure, but her Twitter feed is her business. I dislike the arguments people are advancing that because a white person would be fired, we should abandon our principles and do it back. It does no good to descend to their level. I also don’t see why the “kill yourselves” comment changes the equation for anyone. Either people can express their own opinions on their own time or they can’t. As soon as we get into deciding which speech crosses a line, there’s no way back from the slippery slope, and pretty soon saying homosexuality is sinful becomes hate speech for which you can be fired (oh, wait, we’re already there). Don’t fall into their trap people, or you are no better than they are!

    They are projecting their own mentality onto you. Most people who act that way don’t know how to disagree with someone without demonizing and hating them, so if you disagree with them, it’s beyond their comprehension that you might think of them differently than they think of those with whom they disagree. They deserve your pity.

  • [6] November 10, 2014 at 6:49pm

    Exactly. I actually like their pizza, just not enough to pay twice as much or more than the next closest competitor. They left the door open for Domino’s and Domino’s is handing their … you know… to them now.

  • [2] November 10, 2014 at 6:43pm

    I think it’s hilarious when they try to explain why fewer people signed up than projected. The reality is, nobody wants it and they know that. They didn’t even believe their initial projections, it was all a sales pitch.

    My guess is he’s trying to manufacture something for ratings on his blog or paranormal show or whatever he does. Maybe he thought he could claim some apparition did it to him or maybe he’s angling for claiming possession or something, but this stinks like a publicity stunt, possibly gone wrong.

    I’m a little surprised anybody as tough as pro football players would want to be seen with that pansy. Although, with some of the new rules, football is being sissified, so maybe this is the new normal for a once-tough profession.
