The ‘plan design that most closely matches our current coverage’ looks to be $400 a month more, which is a nearly 40% increase. Add on to that the 10% increase to our current price that we’ve seen every year, and our health insurance will have more than doubled since Obama took office. The differences I’m seeing between the two plans is a $10 decrease in office visit copay, and an increase in deductible of $4000 – per family, which means that since we’re considered two families for the purpose of having a group policy, we’ll be seeing an increase in deductible of $8,000.  This is the cheapest group policy I’ve found that will allow us to keep our doctors; Kaiser Permanente is marginally less expensive but given our experience with them (there’s nothing less inspiring of confidence then hearing “I don’t know” when you ask how to treat your child’s fairly common medical condition if you’re not within fast driving distance of an emergency room) we won’t be returning to Kaiser.

So, thanks Obama, for supporting small businesses. We founded this business so that our children could have a work-at-home mom who would be available when our kids needed us. At this point, I’m going to be working to pay our health insurance.

And it’s interesting to try to figure out if they’re intended or unintended.

In an update to WTEFinF? post, we see this bit of hilarity.

The kicker is that under Obamacare, the Evanston, Ill.-based team, comprised of more than 50 “employees,” is considered a “large employer” and Northwestern must provide pregnancy-related health care for the all-male team.

To quote Lippy the Lion’s friend, hardee-har-har-har.

 

Via Weasel Zippers. whose tagline still annoys me, they never link here and if we’re not part of the bowels of the Internet, well, I don’t know who is.

Unbelievabile.

Congressman Mike Turner, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, and House Armed Services Committee Member Jim Bridenstine along with sixteen House colleagues, sent a letter to Secretary of Energy Moniz regarding the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) FY15 proposal to provide the Russian Federation with the Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (MILES).

 

No really, that’s unfuckinbelievabile.

The U.S. military uses MILES for tactical force-on-force training because it has a system of lasers and dummy ammunition to simulate ground combat.

So Tsar Putin I is getting all invasiony Obama’s helping the fucking Russians train for war.

 

Seriously, he manages to surprise me all the fucking time with exactly how feckless and idiotic he is.

As he tries to make America weaker on the international stage while making thugs and dictators stronger, he’s also trying to turn us into a thugocracy.

Now I gotta wonder, is he also providing them with our missile defense tech? Because, after seeing this,  that would surprise me not at all.

Found by Judicial Watch,  formerly non-partisan when they were going after the Bush admin, now they’re probably the “conservative” group.

I found it at Gateway Pundit.

I Did Not See That Coming

Wait, yes I did (warning, annoying fucking link that continually reloads and slows down your computer to a fucking crawl), and so did anybody who’s paying any attention at all to the Hollywood. They just cannot allow anything but lefty ‘values’ be shown in a good light.

A recap of Noah (The way it should have been done!!!!!) full of spoilers.

Now if you read this blog you’d know I used to be Catholic but now I’m not but I don’t hate religion, I just don’t believe.

But, as you’d also know if you read this blog, I’m sick of people taking shots at religion, that annoys the crap out of me and reflects poorly on me as an atheist-leaning-agnostic.

This movie is one long shot at religion and the Bible. Rebooting it into an allegory for how man sucks, all the prophets are worse than the dead, white, slave-owning, so-called “Founding Fathers” and really, the fallen angels were not all that bad.

You know a movie is bad when the reviewer has to repeatedly say, “I am not kidding”.

It’s full of rock monsters, glowing aliens (Adam and Eve) and how Mankind needs to die, I am not kidding.

Just rent The Greatest Story Ever Told if you need a Bible fix.

 

Northwestern University football players can unionize.

The National Labor Relations Board in Chicago has ruled that football players at Northwestern University are employees and can unionize,

What The Fucking Fuck?

No, seriously. What The Everloving Fucking Fuck?

 

Words fail me.

H/T ESPN after the Mets/Nats game which is the only reason it was on.

Where Is Everybody?

moron

 

I know where I’ve been, reading stupid shit like this and saying, “Well duh“.

But it (Wash Post fact-free hit piece on Emmanuel Goldstein… the Kochs V) may have been even more political, and more nakedly partisan, than we suspected. Today Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and Democratic Congressman Henry Waxman wrote a letter to David Robertson, President and COO of Koch Industries. The Democrats’ letter was premised almost entirely on the Washington Post’s discredited article; it repeatedly footnoted that article and the IFG report on which the Post story was based. The two Democrats concluded by requesting that Koch answer questions and produce a long series of documents relating in various ways to the Keystone pipeline.

 

With this hilarious question

The Democrats’ letter raises an obvious question: did the Washington Post publish its article attempting to link Koch to Keystone at the request of Whitehouse and/or Waxman, or at the request of other Democrats who were coordinating with Whitehouse and Waxman?

 

Yes. Pay attention!

I mean really, doesn’t anybody remember “Macaca” or “The THESIS!!!!!!!!!!” or any of probably hundreds of other stories the Post hammered and then we saw Dem pols using them in their ads?

They SCREAM THE ACCUSATION and whisper the correction. If there even is a correction, which there usually isn’t.

 

Each and every global warmmongering prediction is wrong, from the ice-free North Pole to the warmest, driest winter in 2013-2014 to the fact that the globe stopped warmening in 1997 and yet, the media hammers, “The Science!!!!! is Settled!!!!!!”

 

We see people saying owing more than the GDP is not a bad thing while lying about it. As Uncle says, the feds are over $200 trillion in debt if you count all the unfunded crap like pensions and social security.

The IRS is still saying, “Go fuck yourselves” to Congress as the media covers for them.

Benghazi is down the memory hole, ditto Fast and Furious and the rest of the too many to list or even want to remember of what should be Obama scandals but aren’t because Minitrue is too busy attacking me.

Speaking Power To Truth!!!!!

Syria is still Iran V. Saudi Arabia in a jihadi war that’s dragging Lebanon down with it and the media is ignoring it.

Venezuela is screwed, blued and tattooed and the media is ignoring it.

Obama lost the Iraq war years (Minitrue warning, lying sacks of shit at the Wash Post) after we won it and the media is ignoring.

We’re fighting to no end in Afghanistan and now the media ignores the Rising Death Toll!!!!! that was all the rage when they could hammer Bush.

Hell, Obama’s even losing the Cold War more than 2 decades after we fucking won it and the fucking media is allowing Obama to say shit like, “This invasion is Putin showing his weakness. (hey Wash Post, you got some cum on your chin there)” after he gives another “WARNING!!!!!!!!” that’s absolutely meaningless.

(double links are so the Wash Post can see me calling them liars and Obama suckophants if they look at their trackbacks).

The part that gets me is how he treats the media, from invading their files to siccing the fucking Coast Guard on them to barring them from stuff like M’Shell’s vacation to China to forcing them to provide questions beforehand to just blowing off their questions and attacking them instead of answering.

Is the advancement of their agenda really more important than their own freedom?

I mean, I understand they are actively hostile to my freedom, but their own?

I bet NOAA would like a do-over on this

 

It would be funny if… wait, it is funny. They weren’t even close, they’d correct it but they’re too busy calling me a denier.
