Note to Progressives:

Newsflash! There is no clean end to a turd.

 

A new Facebook friend has shared the letter we are all dreading across the nation – though I’m sure many others have already gotten it. We just received verbal notification at work today, but the ax hasn’t officially fallen. On to his original post:

So I got a letter from Bluecross Blueshield, my health insurance provider, on Saturday. It explained that my current plan, the plan I chose to fit my individual needs, does not comply with Obamacare and thus had to be cancelled. It went on to say that I shouldn’t worry because I had been automatically moved to new plan that does meet the new Obamacare requirements. The details of my new plan are just excellent. My deductible went from $1500 up to $2500, that’s 66%. My limit on annual out of pocket expenses went up from $1500 to $6350, up 323%. I’m now covered for a bunch of things I don’t want or need, like mental illness inpatient and substance abuse inpatient treatment coverage. Now a rational person might assume that when something I chose to buy, and wanted to keep was taken from me, it would at least cost less to pay for the thing that was forced onto me. Well that’s the best part! My monthly premium went up from $139.50 to $229.19, an increase of 65%! I get to pay MORE for something I don’t even want… Remember when our fearless leader said if we like our current plan we can keep it? I know I’m not the only person experiencing this. Please share your story, people have to understand what’s happening here. And please support Ted Cruz and his allies in the senate. He’s one of the few people trying to save us from this monstrosity .

So…how’s that Obamacare working for you? Not so hot for me. I’ve been preaching this since way before it ever got signed into law  – and Nancy Pelosi and Dingy Harry Reid gleefully danced like the vultures they are on the graves of countless future Obamacare victims. Rude awakening time – the future is NOW. It’s HERE.

Did you really read and absorb those numbers? Shane had a pretty frikkin’ decent insurance plan before – beats the heck out of what I have had. But I’d say his paycheck is going to take quite a hit. I know mine already has – before the dreaded letter.

So Senator Ted Cruz spoke to defund Obamacare (The UNAffordable Care Act) for an epic 21 hours and 19 minutes – some dispute it being a filibuster – I don’t care. Senator Cruz gets it. Unlike many, he read the damnable thing and refused to vote for it.

I have a pdf of the bill, but I have not read it in its entirety – I honestly didn’t have the stomach for it. What I did read of it showed me the writing on the wall – unfortunately I was dismissed by many as that crazy libertarian guy with the “Don’t Tread on Me” tag on his truck.

I hate to say “I told you so” –  but I frikkin’ TOLD YOU SO.

I have a pretty decent job, and this is going to seriously hurt me.

Low information voters that voted for “FREEEEE STUFF! MOAR” – it’s honestly going to hurt you even more.

I hope to all that’s holy you can get a discount on a tub of petroleum jelly. You’re gonna need it.

Bend over – Dr. Obama is in…

On three separate days this July, invisible and odorless gases will be released in subway stations and at street level in all five boroughs of New York City. But officials in the New York Police Department will not be alarmed — it was their idea.

The gases, known as perfluorocarbons, will be dispersed to study how airborne toxins would flow through the city after a terrorist attack or an accidental spill of hazardous chemicals, the department said on Wednesday.

I guess the strangest thing to me is there is no further mention of this past the original article…(that was buried on A24).

“Nothing to see here folks, move along…”

Kinda seems like we’re doing the bad guys’ legwork for them…

Obama taking action on gun background check system – Yahoo! News.

With a headline like that, you know it’s gonna be a doozy:

 “The Obama administration was starting a process Friday aimed at removing barriers in health privacy laws that prevent some states from reporting information to the background check system. The action comes two days after the Senate rejected a measure that would have required buyers of firearms online and at gun shows to pass a background check. That’s already required for shoppers at licensed gun dealers.”

Ermmm…forgive me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that already in place? Say I want to buy a gun online from JoeBobOutfitters – one of the questions you get is, “Are you an Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder? If so, may I have a copy of it? and if ya ain’t, what FFL shall I send it to – and I need him to send me a copy of his license before I will ship it to him, too.”

Now Dear Reader – what do you think happens when my shiny new gun arrives at my local FFL? I go to pick it up and have to fill out a Form 4473 – and guess what? Yep, a background check. How about when I buy a gun at a gun show? I pick it out, negotiate price and have to fill out another Form 4473 – and guess what? Yep, another background check.

How about a concealed handgun permit? Take a class, fill out the forms and wait months while they do yet another background check.

Honesty, integrity and gorramed actual fact checking – sadly missing from our alleged media (infotainment outlets) and unfortunately our .gov as well.
