This late in the less than one year for implementation of the Obama health scam and new rules are still being promised, or written, or flim-flammed. On something so relatively simple as the contraception mandate the Obama flim-flammers are now declaring to a court that appears dubious that they never intended to enforce the rule they had stated they had every intention of enforcing. What is going on?:
“First, it’s interesting that the White House hasn’t announced a review of its HHS contraception mandate outside of court. As far as is publicly known, the Obama administration considered its “accommodation” in the spring of this year as its final word, and had every intention of enforcing it. Until now, the suggestion that the rule was under review was an argument intended to delay judicial scrutiny of the administration’s attempt to impose its own definition of “worship” via bureaucratic decree.We are as confused as the celibate nuns (Sisters of the Poor) that will be, or not be, forced to be provided with contraceptives or leave the United States.
This decision forces an end to that strategy. The “intense questioning” forced the administration to make what the appellate court considers a binding submission, and now has to produce a revamped rule that won’t infringe on religious liberty. It’s worth pointing out at this juncture that the Obama administration insisted that its “accommodation” didn’t infringe on religious liberty, so this concession gives the strong impression that the White House’s legal team is admitting that it in fact does infringe on the freedom of religious expression.“
The Sisters of the Poor are not the only ones confused about what is going to happen as Obama’s health scam begins to operate on the helpless populace. At businesses large and small insurance providers are holding question and answer sessions for employees. What is being heard is ugly:
“One of the first things I learned was that some of the employees were bracing for a big hit in terms of their costs. Single person coverage hadn’t changed very much – around $50 each two week pay period – and seemed fairly reasonably priced to me. But the employee plus spouse plan (2 people) had shot up more than 30% and was well over $150 per payday. The full family plan which covers children had taken an even bigger hit and was going to be costing almost $290 per paycheck. One woman who works in the computer graphics section was wandering around afterwards looking stunned, saying to three people in a row, “That’s half of my paycheck. That’s half of my paycheck. What am I going to do?”The insurance provider suggested that people beg their doctors for “samples” of drugs that doctors get from drug companies. Consumers are also advised to take refuge with discount cards. Another cost saving measure was to buy in bulk. Of course Barack Obama made a deal with the drug companies in 2009 to not allow Medicare to negotiate prices – something that would have brought down costs.
There were other changes to the cost structure, with co-pays, deductibles and maximum out of pocket expenses being altered. None of these new price plans seemed to be very popular.”
Now we're going to talk movies. Kathryn Bigelow has a new film coming out. Did you see C.I.'s "World Can't Wait goes completely nuts" this morning?
If you have, you know Debra Sweet announced she was organizing a protest against Bigelow's film.
She hadn't seen the film. But she was going to organize a protest. Here she 'explains':
The unmistakable point of this film is that torture was needed to find Osama bin Laden; therefore torture, even if the film makers don't like it, or you don't like viewing it, is necessary.
Jane Mayer is a cheap, HONKY whore. If this is news to you, go read my cousin's post from last week "Ultimate Honky Jane Mayer." Poor little honky, I don't think she's used to being called out for her White-centric ways.
So Jane's the first link Debra provides. Janes praises Lincoln endlessly. Let me say Sally Field is amazing in the film.
Lincoln is a racist film that harms the Black population by reducing us to extras in the story of our life. The Blacks who worked to end slavery -- enslaved Blacks, freed Blacks, Blacks who were never in the bonds of slavery -- are not important to this film that supposedly is about our freedom.
Jane Mayer loves it and, in the link Debra provides, can't stop praising you.
That's mighty White of you, Jane Mayer.
That's mighty White of you, Debra Sweet.
For those who don't know, this Black man is grabbing the White phrase ("mighty White of you") that was used in this country regularly up to the 40s and meant you had done something wonderful.
I'm grabbing that phrase and using it to point out the racism.
So a dumb government whore like Jane who wants to praise Lincoln? Why the f**k would I trust her take on any film?
The second link?
It goes to the article that Glenn Glenn Greenwald -- Rio's best little ambulance chaser -- wrote before he saw the film, trashing the film, but he just saw the film and he updates it.
I don't give a f**k about Glenn Greenwald. He's an international joke. He voted for Bush and he argued publicly for the Iraq War.
He's another dirty whore.
And World Can't Wait has become a dirty whore by associating with him.
I hadn't planned to see Kathryn Bigelow's film.
That's because John McCain and others were screaming it was a valentine to Barack. I didn't think it would be that bad but I wasn't interested.
Thank you, Debra. I will now see it the day it comes out.
Thank you, Debra, for acting as advance woman for the film and getting the word out. Knowing that you and some other idiots will be protesting it (this film you haven't seen), is enough reason for me to see it.
And Debra, since I got online, I've been dying to use my cousin Marcia and Betty's favorite online phrase so let me use it on you: Kiss my Black ass.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
