A New York Times report out Wednesday says Montana Sen. John Walsh plagiarized “at least a quarter” of his 2007 master’s degree thesis for the U.S. Army War College – a revelation that could seriously imperil the Democrat’s fall campaign bid.
In undercover tests of the new federal health insurance marketplace, government investigators have been able to procure health plans and federal subsidies for fake applicants with fictitious documents, according to findings that will be disclosed to lawmakers on Wednesday.
The results of the inquiry by the Government Accountability Office are evidence of still-imperfect work by specialists intended to assist new insurance customers and government contractors hired to verify that coverage and subsidies are legitimate. The GAO also pointed to flaws that linger in the marketplace’s Web site, HealthCare.gov.
According to testimony to be delivered before a House Ways and Means subcommittee, undercover GAO investigators tried to obtain health plans for a dozen fictitious applicants online or by phone, using invalid or missing Social Security numbers or inaccurate citizenship information.
All but one of these fake applicants ended up getting subsidized coverage — and have kept it. In once instance, an application was denied but then approved on a second try.

Fruits sold at WAL MART and SAMS CLUB recalled because of Listeria
Some fruits sold at Walmart, Sam's Club recalled due to listeria
WLTX 2:56 p.m. CDT July 22, 2014
SAN FRANCISCO (WLTX) — A California fruit packing company announced a recall of peaches, plums, nectarines and pluots after the some of the fruit tested positive for listeria, a potentially dangerous food-borne bacterium.
Wawona Packing Co. is voluntarily recalling the tree-ripened stone fruit that was packed on June 1, 2014 through July 12, 2014 and then shipped directly to retailers and wholesalers who resell the products.
The U.S. Food And Drug Administration has released a full product list for consumers and photos of product labels. They include products sold in Walmart, Sam's Club,Trader Joe's, and other retail locations.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause a potentially fatal infection and is particularly dangerous to older adults, pregnant women, newborns, and adults with weakened immune systems, according to the CDC. Symptoms may include fever and muscle aches, GI symptoms, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions.

Now I know you're making this stuff up - Kenya is trying hard to distance themselves from owebowma. Kenya now claims he was born in Russia-
Pep-keep supporting the most unpopular president. He is a walking, talking comedy show!
Olmarinee9 - it is incredible how so many people were duped by owebowma. It is unfortunate that so many are dependent on the government because of him.
As long as Buffett is is making this kind of money he will never let owebowma proceed with Keystone. America has went from a community organizer to lame-duck vacationer-
I honestly believe pep never really knows what he actually posts-to go from a pipeline to clearcutting forests. SHEESH!
It is so much fun baiting these suckers - you can always depend on certain idiots to respond without checking actual facts. Oh well - I am dealing with suckers here tonight!
A new report issued by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) admits that nearly 1.3 million Obamacare enrollees, or about 16 percent of the overall total, cannot be verified for legal status in the U.S. -- in other words, most, if not all, of them are illegal immigrants rather than American citizens.
The shocking figures can be found on page 11 of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) report, entitled Marketplaces Faced Early Challenges Resolving Inconsistencies with Applicant Data. According to the figures, 1,295,571 "inconsistencies" -- this is a politically correct way of implying missing or fraudulent data -- found on Obamacare applications involved issues of citizenship, national status or lawful presence in the U.S., meaning applicants did not or could not verify this important information.
A recent study conducted by W.I.T. has determined that many of the behavioral traits typically ascribed to liberalism are caused by a hereditary chromosomal defect. The chromosomal abnormality, located on the seventeenth pair of autosome chromosomes, has a severe and profound impact on normal brain development and function. The new disease, Blacks Disorder, is named after Dr. Amanda Black, who first discovered the chromosomal replication abnormality and later headed the research project at W.I.T.’s applied genetics department examining this defect.
While doing population demographic and genetic research, Dr. Black noted that a high percentage of individuals who self-identified as possessing a “liberal” political ideology, within the genetically sequenced research group, seemed to possess the same hereditary autosomal defect. Specifically, when undergoing mitosis in the early critical junction of cell division a transcription error occurs that shortens one of the chromosome Q arms so that the total genes contained within it is reduced from its normal 1672 genes to 1670. Another three genes within the chromosome undergo minute transcription abnormalities which result in a specific mutation. These genetic omissions and errors cumulatively effect neural function in several identifiable and consistent ways.
Madmilker - you do realize that by posting facts you will be ignored by the ones who really need those facts?
Bird - I'm sensing a meltdown may be forthcoming from a certain person who has had that issue in the past. Little indicators are starting to show - remember, his meds may not kick in fast enough!!
