She said she keeps hearing the economy is improving and that I should get up earlier and start looking for a job.
I said, "But Mom, any job I get is not going to be able to take advantage in my undergrad degree in Medieval Nutsakkery, and I'd probably lose my healthcare benefits I'm eligible for under 0bamacare".
"Never mind that", she said, she just banged on the door at eleven instead of noon and started railing away at me for getting the kind of rest I need. It's time you get out there. "Don't you realize you're going to have to start making your student loan payments in a few months?"
On that point, I knew she was maybe right. Although I definitely know that it's a lot warmer around noon than it is earlier in the morning, and I'm pretty sure that's due to global warming. And if I get a job and have to drive there every day, I know I'll just be contributing to the problem, dude. I'm not sure I'll be able to reconcile that with my feelings about climate change. I'm not George Bush, I can't just go ahead and ignore the worldwide consequences of my actions.
The really scary thing is that Mom said she'd be waking me up at ten next week, and then 9 the week after, until I am up probably some time before the freaking sun comes up, even though I'm not sure exactly when that is. One of my professors in college said that the time when the sun rises is always changing, and I thought that dude is so batty in the head, nobody could even figure out when to go to work if that was true. It would be like saying that 10:30 is a time that's always changing. I remember laughing at him at the time. But that's another reason why it's gonna be tough for me to find a job.
Juvenile delinquent. He'd rather spray paint his name on your garage door, and what you paid for that door and what you'll pay to have it fixed, too bad, you must have stolen that money from some poor minority who'll vote for 0bama & co when he takes you stuff and promises to give it to them. And that car of yours, you stole that, too. So it's only fair you think of 0bama every time you drive it. Especially to your job, which you don't deserve, because you stole that, too.
Oh man, for a minute there, I was worried that something wasn't George Bush's fault. Is he responsible for your testicle obsession, too?
Your brain is seriously a pustule of infected fluid. The article(s) you linked say these are new plans brought into being BECAUSE OF OBAMACARE and they are junk. They didn't exist before scammers thought them up because people thought they would lose their healthcare. it doesn't mean that people will or will not lose their healthcare, it doesn't mean anything. You're a hopeless, vapid case of colossal ignorance.
So, in terms of being able to predict the future, the idea that "premiums would go down" is now "premiums aren't going to be as high as _____ said they would be. But premiums didn't go down; they have risen substantially. But because your brain is composed of Silly Putty and can be molded to believe anything anyone with sufficiently fat thumbs wants it to....you were lied to, objectively. But for you, it's a win that an anti-ACA organization overestimated healthcare costs? It's more important to you that they are wrong than 0bama was wrong and furthermore lied to you.
It's kind of like "I will close Gitmo". it never happened, and it never will happen, but you forgive Deal Leader because you are a #$%$-gobbler. It's like global warming, which had to be morphed into "climate change"; and how we are going to have bizarre weather all over...meanwhile, the hurricane season shows the least number of hurricanes in many decades this season. it just doesn't matter what kind of lies you are told. You eat them up and consider it a win. The stuff you were promised doesn't happen, but because Republicans said it wouldn't happen in NOT EXACTLY the way it didn't happen, you think you're winning something and are happy.
I wish you happiness, #$%$-gobbler.
It does. IMO it loses 40 over time and if it does, it will be tossed out EOY and wander around in the stock wilderness in the 35-38 area for a decade, like it did 2000-2012.
Yes, if I am a man, I'll have coverage if I get pregnant. My wife will have coverage for prostrate cancer. Those are HUGE benefits. Plus, if I am a man and get pregnant, I will be able to get psychological counseling to reconcile the reality of it all, as will my wife. There will be better coverage, for more people, at lower costs. The best part is how completely inane you are for believing this absurd proposition. The worst part is the reality.
Which consumer advocate said "essential coverage" is "junk insurance", and who qualified said consumer advocate as anybody but an 0bamahack. Name them. Name one of them. You suffer from excess pronoun disease---you quote unattributed nonsense but do so in some sort of lofty tone that offers the pretense that said unnamed sources know what they are talking about.
Did you know that based upon the latest studies, the average climate scientist wears one black sock and one brown sock? This is because half of them seem to wear black, while half of them wear brown ones. I didn't know that. That changes my opinion about....well, just about everything.
Congratulations. Your candidate won and Karl Rove was a jerk then as he is today. Too bad the country lost.
You can study the studies...or you can study the FREAKING BILLS WHEN THEY ARRIVE IN THE MAIL. When you do, you find some 80-100% rate increases.
So what is supposed to be wrong about cutting money to a bunch of pimply-faced post-adolescents doing taxpayer funded research teaching wombats to use condoms so that fruit bats do not suffer indignities based upon ethno-centric diversity? You make this assumption with your tone that having these nerds with partially-formed brains, fresh out of liberal indoctrination centers in universities their daddies and mommies paid $45K a year for is just the coolest thing there is, that astounding wonders of scientific discovery await all of us in our new utopian paradise if only their collective brilliance might be applied to all our problems like global warming, global cooling, global stasis, global climatic indecision, and what happens to those socks you cannot find when you're done with your laundry? Where do they all go?
I don't have any problem whatsoever defunding 75% of this garbage.
Oh yeah, 0bama is a towering beacon of strength, integrity, and virtue. First he declared the use of poison gas was "a red line that would change my calculus" [on involvement in Syria] (Do I have the right context? The right president? The right teleprompter? The right lips, tongue, the right pharynx, the right larynx, and all the associated word-forming physicalities?) Today, in Sweden, it was "the world" who declared the red line vis a vis the use of poison gas. But it was also "Congress" who declared the red line as to the use of gas. Anybody but him. It's never his fault nor his responsibility. Especially if it turns into a moosef**k like everything else this guy touches. it's not his idea, unless it has to do with denigrating and demeaning America.
There's no hypocrisy. 0bama is a standalone, flaming, pathological liar. In ANY context.
SUMBUDDY ELSE GOTTA PAY FOR MY MEDS!!
SUMBUDDY ELSE GOTTA PAY FOR MY MEDS!!
Wow, this is what passes for intelligence in 0bamica. Grifter nation.
As long as you accept the admin's various re-definitions of words, you would be correct toasti, but those redefinitions are important constructs in the reality evasion conducted by 0bama & co. "Deportations" are not deportations. The people involved are brought to temporary detention centers, where they are counted....let's assume (yeah, right) and then released within the US. They are not transported across the border, like a normal person would define deportation. Additionally, illegals caught multiple times are counted multiple times.
And if you furthermore quote the Washington Post, you are showing that you believe the admin's propaganda arm, so if you're trying to impress anyone....I have some studies for you. From the Univ of East Anglia. From MoveOnDotOrg and Media Matters that will let you spout anything you want. You just have to believe them. If you can be that naive.
Using ICE numbers is like using any other number from this admin...it's just fooling yourself.
And even if you are completely right, is there, or will there ever be a time when you can get past comparing everything 0bama does to to GWBush? How deep does the derangement go? Can sophisticated measuring instruments measure it?
Yes, all he did was to trash the Constitution, throw your and my rights into the gutter and spit on them, turn you and I into feudal wards of the state destined to beg the state for its diminishing set of protections, and seek protection from an ever increasing source of torment and oppression aka the US government. No problem, this country sucks and everything about it sucks and the worse this bozo can make it the quicker we get to a condition where everybody hates each other and is ready to steal from and/or kill each other...in essence, Mad Max, Americadome.
Only someone who has no appreciation for the unique set of circumstances we have had for most of our history in this country and hates the freedoms and responsibilities it bestows upon us, just by virtue of being born here, would wish to p*** it away by giving it away to anybody who asks for it, as long as they have some compelling story...even if they have been coached on their story. You'd really have to hate your country to want to pollute it and denigrate it and its opportunities. How come libs are fanatical about clean water and clean air but as far as the population of the country, the people, any piece of dirt you wanna let in....hopefully, with some communicable diseases, many of which were considered eradicated. But that we have culture and diversity, we have outbreaks of measles....and tuberculosis. Diseases that were considered extinct from the US. That's diversity for ya. We suck, they're great. Bring in the sicknesses!
On this, we agree, toasti. McCain needs to finalize his supply of Depends undergarments and retire, quietly, to his ranch in Arizona where he works with bewildered people of all ages and all persuasions. He feels he sets a fine example. And he can offer diversity seminars with his little French companion, Lindsey Graham.
