Oh, I dunno. I might specifically attend my National Security team’s briefing re Ukraine/Russia crisis. Maybe even skip golf or fundraising or jogging around the White House with Pluggy Joe in order to specifically make time for that. But then again, I’m just a simple Republican hatemonger, so what do I know?

Gorbachev tried to reform the USSR.  He ended up killing it.

It couldn’t be fixed.  Reforms only exposed its flaws.

So too, Obamacare.

From the type of people who brought us this

We now get this (the site has to be seen to be believed) (link fixed I think)

derp

As Ace writes about the minds behind this ad campaign.

And here is what they think appeals to you — pictures of young people in Party Hardy poses and daffy young stupid things who think Ryan Gosling is like sooo dreamy and my God where would I get birth control pills if Obama didn’t draw me a map?

Really?

If this actually is appealing to Millennials — and they find this to be non-demeaning — then every insult I’ve shot their way is true.

Eggs-fucking-zackly
For the record, I would be utterly unsurprised if this site was bullshit, but it looks like the official Colorado Obamadebaclecare site. The link above is to the page with all the ads they have.

The Schadenfreude is strong with this one:

Democratic officials said top administration aides got a close-up view of the cancellation controversy last week, when Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., said at a closed-door meeting of the party’s rank and file that his son had received notice his coverage was being terminated.

Oh boy.

…too bad, because he doesn’t work here anymore:

Hospitals, a reliable source of employment growth in the recession and its aftermath, are starting to cut thousands of jobs amid falling insurance payments and inpatient visits.

If you weren’t already sitting down, you might want to find a chair (or perhaps even a fainting couch) because the following is so stupid that it’s going to knock you right on your ass…

The payroll cuts are surprising because the Affordable Care Act (ACA), whose implementation took a big step forward this month, is eventually expected to provide health coverage to as many as 30 million additional Americans.

This is where most lefties and members of the press (BIRM) confuse the issue, sometimes deliberately, sometimes out of just plain stupidity. See, the thing is, health insurance and health care are two very different things. Since our writers (and there are two of them) claim to be surprised, I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and guess that they’re tripped up by the fact that two out of the three words in “Affordable Care Act” are a teensy bit misleading.

Since supporters of this monstrosity are fond of saying, “Hey, everybody has to have car insurance!”–and note that they never call it car care–let’s use that as an analogy.

Not to give our friends on the left any bright ideas, but let’s say that tomorrow, a law would go into effect which stipulates that every man, woman and child in the country had to get car insurance, regardless of whether or not they owned a car or could even drive. Would this then mean that car dealerships auto parts stores and body shops would suddenly see a massive hiring boom? Of course not. Because those places don’t sell car insurance.

Furthermore, if the law mandated that businesses with a certain number of full-time employees had to pay for their car insurance, those automotive businesses might–surprisingly!–even start laying people off or trimming their hours in order to keep their costs low. This, in spite of the fact that millions of people who were previously uninsured now have access (mandated access, even) to car insurance.

Mind you, none of this even takes into account that some of these new customers were previously “uninsurable” (actually meaning that they couldn’t afford what companies would charge) because they were habitual drunk drivers, got into a lot of accidents, or were constantly getting speeding tickets. Or that some of these businesses (like the body shops) will have a hard time getting reimbursed by the government-run car insurance exchanges (State-Run Farm? Allpowerfulstate?) that a lot of these people buy their coverage from.

So, when you look at it that way, it’s maybe just a tad less surprising. But I’m not going to be surprised if we continue seeing such head-scratching going on from our betters in the MSM for quite a while.

Via Jim Treacher, who also scratches his head and asks, “Who could have predicted such a thing? For the past five years?”

What’s wrong with this picture?

I think it was either Sun Tzu or Dick Cheney who said “Know your enemy,” so I occasionally follow that dictum by taking a look at Daily Kos. Apparently, though, they and their OFA buddies aren’t familiar with that piece of advice since John Boehner and Eric Cantor are pretty fucking far from “Tea Party Republicans.”
 
Hey, wait a minute…maybe this graphic is directed at Boehner and Cantor. As in, “You Two Squishes Tell those Tea Party Republicans Enough Already.” Well, that actually makes some sense.

We’ve been seeing a lot of people scratching their heads and wondering why our self-proclaimed “Elite” are so fucking willfully-ignorant.

Like Ace and Nicole for instance.

Well, FrnakJ explained it all in a scientifical analysis of the left almost 10 years ago.

Most people stop at formal operational thought, but there is a lesser known fifth stage(3) that some reach and become trapped in called postoperational thought. This is when one’s mind becomes so overtaken by navel gazing and hypotheticals completely divorced from experience that his or her mental acuity now operates barely above the senorimotor stage. It’s a special state of stupidity that only the most intelligent can reach. To give an example, let’s say there is a tree lying in one’s path. If it were a simple creature approaching the tree, such as a dog, it would walk around the tree, not knowing of any other option. But, a very intelligent person in the postoperational thought stage could, using his vast intelligence, explain away the existence of the tree and walk right into it. A great intellect is required to be that dumb.

RTWT, it’s funny and spot on.

He’s been the laughtrack of the Funniest End Of Civilization Ever for a long time. He doesn’t just make you laugh, he explains how screwed we are while he’s doing it.

Some group up in Seattle called Washington CeaseFire has joined with that city’s mayor, Mike McGinn, to start a program where local businesses can become magnets for violent criminals Gun Free Zones by signing a pledge and putting a nifty target decal in their windows.

Now, this is hardly the first place to try this idea, but I love the fact that even the moonbat geniuses behind this scheme seem to have a slight inkling about how this might turn out:

“We’re making a statement as a community” said Washington CeaseFire Board President Ralph Fascitelli. “We know this won’t stop someone determined to cause violence, but we hope that standing together and giving businesses a tool to say no to guns will change the conversation around gun violence. Maybe our message will even make it to Olympia – we need better tools now to stop gun violence in our community.”

Well, I’m sure it’s a comfort to know that if you happen to die on the job during the course of an armed robbery or when somebody’s angry, unhinged ex shows up looking for blood, “maybe” the conversation will have changed or a message will make it somewhere or something. And, hey, “tools” will have been used. Metaphorical tools, which are the best kind.

Yeah.

It’s a ready-made Drudge headline. In reference to the recent IRS scandal, Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer said, “The law is irrelevant“.

The utterance launched numerous tweets and re-tweets, and, predictably, a backlash against an out-of-context quote.

Let me charitably re-phrase what Pfeiffer was probably trying to say — That, regardless of the whether the IRS actions were technically illegal, they were definitely wrong, and the Obama administration will be working to rectify the problem.

That’s about as generous as I can be.  But it’s still a problematic and revealing statement.  The administration’s broad strategy is to direct the media away from inquiries about illegality.  You know, because it almost certainly was illegal.

These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.

The FP-45 Liberator…we cranked out a million of these in WWII with the idea being airdrop them into occupied Axis territory so resistance fighters could plug Fritz in the back of the head and take his Mauser.  The US didn’t end up following through with using many of these, and most were destroyed after the war.  The concept was revisited in Vietnam, with the Deer gun, but the CIA quickly ditched the idea after a limited run of 1000.  3d printed guns and components may mean in the future that occupied and oppressed peoples have the means to fight with such weapons, without relying on a foreign power supplying them.  All the screeching about ZOMG THE GLOCK 7 METAL TECTERZ!!!! is a sideshow. Of course Frum probably knows that, which is why he’s a twat…
