In that sickening ABC polyamory advertisement one of the women quotes Hillary -

"DEVI: We share life together. I've got a son. It takes a village to raise a child and it feels really good to have that kind of support."


http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2013/11/27/abc-preaches-gospel-polyamory-touts-saving-power-threesomes

Apparently the village has to have sex with her husband too. Raise her son & have sex with her husband.

Miss Marple

Oh, I figure that they have had a separate site they were working on this past month and tomororow they will do the switcheroo, where everything will be peachy keen.

Then we will told that we lacked faith and that now all is well.

I see Fox is falling into the trap and making it all about the web site relaunch.

Krugman was going on and on today about how he tried it and how it worked perfectly and how all of us nay-sayers would have to eat crow. So I figure this is another one of his bait and switch deals like the birth certificate.

One could hope this will turn out like the Chicago Olympics bid, but there are too many software gurus who sent mercenaries to help.

Unless, of course, Stuxnet. Heh.

Got a letter from my insurance co today. Does it confirm my reset renewal date to Dec2013, as I confirmed by telephone -- twice?

It does not.

It tells me they are confirming my "current" policy expires March 2014, but they'll "transition" me to their most "comparable" plan (no details other than premiums are doubled) unless I tell them otherwise, and that I can then just use the Exchange.

What a cock up.

And the mail came after the letter-sending offices were already closed. And the general services number had a recording telling me their closed for the holidays, opening again on Monday.

Grrrr. I'll get it straightened out, but jeez. What's with the multiple offices/multiple stories thing anyway?

Jack is Back!

My beagle, Jazz, is such a prolific reader, we had to fit him wtih reading glasses:)

Krugman, goes on and on, he's the Ron Burgundy, of academic pundits, no I'm confident the Norwegian Blue will not be pining for the fjords tomorrow,

rich@gmu

pretty sure Krugman's medical isn't provided by medicaid, medicare, or the careful ministrations of ocare navigators.

>>>making optimal choices under conditions of uncertainty, when weighing probabilities of long-term risks and benefits<<<

I wish there was a subject in school, with books and tests and academic controversy, that taught about choices, risks, and benefits. If someone could come up with that, he'd be either a gazillionaire or a NYT columist.

narciso79

Ah, he's adorable, JiB, and smart as a whip,

sorry to hear that Alice, hope it gets straightened out.

reading that politico article...

>>>That’s where the ACA’s metals system comes in.<<<

I recall when we went to a color coded terror alert system all the hooting and hollering. Didn't Jon Stewart make nearly a year's worth of jokes about that.

Now are health care is color coded! Laugh damn it.

>>>competition, transparency and consumer choice will lead to higher-quality<<<

Except Ocare does no such thing-it limits competition, the website (and subsidies) disguise prices, and choices are limited.

>>>making optimal choices under conditions of uncertainty, when weighing probabilities of long-term risks and benefits, and when analyzing complex products with multiple components of unclear relative values<<<

for sophistry, I'd give it an A! and damn it, if only someone could come up with this...it'd be a mint.

Miss Marple-

That has been my thinking recently. The website roll out was junked up so they'd be able to claim, once the website was fixed, see problems solved. However, it still doesn't solve the other issues, regardless of how great the website works.

Skoot,

Wait 'til you see the pretty paint on the Potemkin Village facade. It's going to be beautiful.

I wonder why they picked a Saturday to relaunch? Now we're going to have to wait until late Monday to get reports from the fascists at BlueGovIns on the spectacular flow of absolutely perfect and complete 834s generated by the Zients Miracle.

I just read something on Facebook about how Clinton had an arrangement with Ross Perot - he had been awarded some contract by Clinton, and that was the reason he ran as a 3rd party. When things started going too well for Perot he feigned a crack-up. The point was that we can expect Hillary to do the same thing, and the suggested candidate was the libertarian guy in VA who made sure Cuccinelli didn't win.

I polished up my tinfoil hat. Not well thought out and the relaunch might be as big a disaster (and I keeping my fingers crossed!).

Jane-

Cuccinelli crashed on the rocks here in Northern Virginia and not sure Sarvis made much of a difference. I think most of Sarvis support would have stayed home or went with McAwful. The big issue was the money Tom Steyer pumped in to make sure that not a drop of oil is looked for in the Chesapeake. In NoVa he had a brutal campaign against Cuccinelli, and C along with the GOP, had no response [why not an ad with a creepy dem going through your pantry and bathroom and garage...C had no response to "he's a creep wnating to be in your bedroom" and an easy one is "well creey dems want to be in your bedroom, kitchen, garage, kids classroom...] oh well.

it doesn't matter if its Bratton or Banks. DeBlasio being the well trained commie-socialist-agitator will have his own tattle tales and fellow travelers in the hierarchy of the NYPD that will either screw up the works or make sure the Commisar knows who is loyal and who should be poitically sodomized.

narciso79

Well you folks would know more then I, but this site seems to designed like Dana Barrett's co op in 'Ghostbusters' when Venckman tells Egon, 'they don't make them like this, anymore,' he responds, 'they never made them like this'

I'm not suggesting this is a portal to another dimension, but I'm not discounting that possibility either.

Joe Scarborough: Republicans can kick moderates like Gen. [Colin] Powell out of its party's mainstream and drive them into the arms of the Democratic Party every four years...

The question that ought to be asked of this pompous jackass, is after 5 years of hosting his stupid TV show, and having a national soapbox to explain his concept of what Republicans are and what they ought to be doing, can he name a single instance, one single example, of himself having driven any Dem listener into the arms of the Republicans? If he can't, then he should STFU.

DrJ

WSJ:

Despite recent progress at HealthCare.gov, a raft of problems will remain beyond the Obama administration's Saturday deadline to make the troubled federal insurance website work.

The news isn't all bad: Users say the site looks better, pages load faster, and more people are getting through to sign up for health plans.

But technical problems still affect HealthCare.gov's ability to verify users' identities and transmit accurate enrollment data to insurers, officials say. The data center that supports the site faces continuing challenges, and tools for processing payments to insurers haven't been built.

Account Deleted

"and transmit accurate enrollment data to insurers"

Just niggling details. Keep your eyes on the paint job - that's what counts.

narciso79

Or that bit about processing payments, 'other than the obvious, how did you like the play, Mrs. Lincoln'

AliceH

Thanks, Rich. Yes - It will get sorted. Just a pain.

I have at last broken the code in that letter to identify the specific plan they selected for me. I guess the reason the premiums in the letter are 4.5% higher than what's currently posted on ehealth dot com for 2014 is the highest rate hike they could get approved for a new plan starting April. Bastahs.

Perot, had a chigger up his slacks, about the Bush's for a long time, partially because of his role in investigating the POW issue, that's where he doubleteamed with the Christics against Armitage, with a campaign of innuendo,
you know went to bat for Armitage, in that instance, a young lawyer named Lewis Libby,

CH, The Terps have the responsibility to make the Fighting Debbies 0-8 in the A(all)Coast Conference (includes the Great Lakes and the Ohio River). Nice way to leave.....

rich@gmu

>>>. Most of those votes came from Cuccinelli and thus guaranteed a McAuliffe victory.<<<

probably not and the guy has zero national profile (and hardly any state profile). His support came from self identified "independent", college educated, women making 100k-200k per year...pretty much the same demographic that votes for Dems over and over again.

Miss Marple

Megyn Kelly has been covering student debt. A black kid finally said what I have been griping about for several years:

It is wrong for departments to encourage a kid to borrow money for a major when they KNOW that the employment rate for that major is very low.

This is the biggest racket (outside the Obama administration) in this country. Kids are encouraged to borrow money from the government to take worthless majors and assume huge amounts of debt. The colleges make huge amounts of money, the government makes a huge profit on the loans, and the students have their futures burdened with the debt.

These debts are assumed by students who are short years removed from high school. They are lured into these majors by department heads who use student counts to justify salary and budget increases.

NO ONE provides them with information about their employment prospects. Parents are often naive about this, plus the students are allowed to borrow without any co-signors, and they can also borrow for living expenses, which is how many of them can afford to go to Acapulco or Paris on spring break.

You all will read my rants about this about every six months. It's an evil scheme and I wish someone would really investigate it. Megyn Kelly is the first I have seen to do a long discussion of this situation.

@ 8:12 A rational person would ask what kind of sick freak had nothing better to do than to contrive that bogus tripe and to then search for places to insert that tripe just to save face?

Answer: An accomplished, compulsive, pathological liar and
a sick freak, of which there aren't any shortages on this blog.

The sick freak hates Anne, because although she hasn't posted here in nearly 3 years, I reiterate, IN NEARLY THREE YEARS, she discredited him literally dozens of times, proving that he was a blowhard and a bullshit artist. What's funny is that he blames her for cutting off his balls, when, in fact, that sneaky little coward never had any balls. DRj is TM's sock puppet.

daddy

Just got to that Politico story you guys were talking about about how our brains aren't wired well enough to make good decisions about ObamaCare.

Then I see Insty posts a story from the Journal "Nature" about Science Fraud

Retractions of scientific papers have increased about tenfold during the past decade, with many studies crumbling in cases of high-profile research misconduct that ranges from plagiarism to image manipulation to outright data fabrication.

Well that prompted me to look into one of the fraud cases mentioned; prof's doctoring data in Social Psychology research. So that led me to this story in Psychology Today: What's Wrong with Social Psychology?
An insider's view on a (slightly) damaged academic discipline

It has not been a good year for my academic discipline, social psychology. Since last August there have been three academic fraud cases detected, leading to the resignation of three professors... Is it sheer coincidence that these three high profile fraud cases all concern experimental social psychologists?...An example is a study conducted by Stapel showing (supposedly) that eating meat makes you selfish.

My overall point is that it isn't just ClimateGate where these Lefty profs are lying like hell in efforts to convince the public that we aren't smart enough on our own to make good decisions about Global Warming. They want us to believe that we need them to tell us what to do about ObamaCare and just about every other facet of life.

rich@gmu

in re: the governor's race...until the GOP stops feeling sorry for themselves when their prefered candidate doesn't win (the GOP modestly supported C and not enough to make a difference) and some local officials cut ads for M. Then letting a lib billionaire come in with millions of dollars to define not just the candidate who is running but the party as a whole, they will continue to lose close, hard fought races.

mad jack

CH: That timeout edsdale called to ice the best field goal kicker in college worked out just the way a BC grad would have dreamed of. BC in the ACC is a joke but the Terps in the big ten? I don't get it but then again nothing in college ball makes sense except the money chase.

Atrollpasinthru

You slimy piece of shit. Only a scummy Jew would pull that scummy stunt, putting Anne's name at the end of other posts, as only members of JOM's staff would have the access to do.

You liars would stoop to anything, even forgery, to try to win.

daddy

Is the style guide Duke can go to hell or North Carolina can go to hell?

Rich,

A browse through the Annals of JOM show that the first use of the correct and proper terminology, Go To Hell Duke, go way back to a JOM sports thread of 18 March 2006:
These Times Demand The Times

TM, Just a word of thanks for your continual good efforts at self-policing the blogosphere. Spotted your valuable comments at both Captain's Quarter's and at Tigerhawks. Excellent job. I take it your college Alma Mater didn't get selected for the big dance, otherwise I can't imagine how you could possibly wind up with so much free time during NCAA Tournament weekend. Go to Hell Duke.

Well that fat tub of goo, Tourette's Syndrome,
who quit his seat, almost too close to the general election, is emblematic, he was whispering in Neil King's ear, the unsurprising notion that the Top Men will go to the wall, up to the moment they forget your name, and throw an anchor around you, and let you sink in the general.

Captain Hate

Tomorrow is the annual religious rite of Michigan-Ohio State.

Unfortunately, even though they're going back to the traditional noon start, the game was traditionally played the Saturday before Thanksgiving so that the students could attend before going off to be with their families. There was an article in the WSJ a few weeks ago talking about how attendance is down at college football games. The reason for it is no mystery to me: In the pursuit of television dollars the schools have gotten away from the concept of the games being part of student life. College football used to be almost exclusively on Saturday afternoons and when you start jacking around with that, the students will find alternative things to do.

Gus

Hilarious. I read the first Anne post, (Nick) and I knew a Jew Rant was coming. Sure enough.

henry

Hey Gus, hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

DrJ

CH,

the game was traditionally played the Saturday before Thanksgiving

Yeah, I know. Traditionally it has been played on or about my birthday. The week separation now is very odd. So much for traditional rites...

If you have the time, you would have no better friend once he chooses you. It does take time, though, and I get a sense that you are rather busy.
