Obama Defends "Keep your plan" Claim
Reluctant Dems super-eager to stab him in the back


Obama made a point to explain his previous claim that those who like their insurance plans
would be able to keep them, an oft-invoked promise that has come under criticism recently due
to reports of individual policies being dropped. While even Robert Gibbs joined in the back-stabbing,
Obama has called the reports of cancelled coverage "grossly misleading."

On Monday, he once again defended the line.

"What we said was you could keep your plan if it hasn't changed since the law was passed," Obama said.
"If the insurance company changes it ... they've got to change it to a higher standard."

Obama "argued that allowing insurance companies to continue to offer what the government
deemed to be plans with insufficient coverage would have broken the promise he made to
ensure no American is one illness away from financial ruin."

That's a very weak defense - I wish he'd use my words instead of that surrender language.
Why doesn't Obama say, "You may have lost your insurance, but you really haven't lost anything
because the bastards were never going to pay your claim because the system was designed by crooks.
Al least this way, you're saving the cost of the premiuims."

One of the platforms of Obamacare is the insurance crooks can't keep more than 20% in profits.
The crooks who are dropping your coverage are, in effect, saying, "If we can't make a killing
off of you, we don't want to bother doing business with you."

It seems Obama is bending over backwards to be "nice" to the crooks and it's costing him politically.
If he was a little less "nice," he would be a much more effective president.

Boner to Gays: "Drop Dead"
They want to keep on losing elections


Speaker Boner on Monday opposed a bill to ban workplace gay-hating, dimming the chances
of the White House-backed measure becoming law.

"The speaker believes that gays should be put into ovens," Boner's spokesman Michael Steel said.

Steel issued the statement at about the same time that the bill's backers in the Senate appeared to
have gathered enough support to clear a Republican procedural roadblock.

Dean Heller of Nevada became the fifth Senate Republican to announce support for the bill.
"This legislation raises the federal standards to match what we have come to expect in Nevada,
which is that discrimination must not be tolerated under any circumstance," Heller said.

The bill has become the latest battle in the GOP's ongoing civil war. While an increasing number
of Republicans are showing more flexibility over gay rights, conservative groups are threatening
to primary those Republicans who belive in civil rights and moving forward.

The four other Senate Republicans who publicly back the bill are Orrin Hatch of Utah,
Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Mark Kirk of Illinois.

 Subject: War of the Worlds

Hey Bart,
I just read how the uproar over War of the Worlds was totally manufactured by the print media.

Newspapers were feeling quite threatened by that newfangled "radio" and decided
to raise hell about Wells' radio drama.  All that panic?  Didn't happen.
  Bruce in NM

Bruce, I find that hard to believe.

It was 1938 and people were even more stupid and gullible then than they are in 2013.
With the radio blaring "The Martians have landed," nobody had a panic attack?

If the GOP Kills Obamacare...
137 million people could lose their insurance


The GOP has gleefully jumped on media reports about Americans having their insurance nixed
because of Obamacare. "Obama lied. My health plan died," lying whore Michelle Malkin wrote,
referring to Obama's promise that people who liked their health insurance plans could keep them.
But how many Americans' health plans would receive some form of cancelation notice if GOP
hard-liners got their wish and repealed Obamacare? Probably at least 137 million.

Let's do the math. Most of the 49 million Americans who were uninsured before Obamacare will now
be eligible to obtain health coverage—either through the expansion of Medicaid or through federal
subsidies they can use to purchase insurance on the cheap through the exchanges. From that number,
subtract the 30 million or so low-income people who will not sign up for coverage, either because they
can't afford it, or they live in one of the 24 states where Republican governors decided not to expand
Medicaid. That takes us down to 19 million uninsured Americans whose coverage would disappear if
Republicans repeal Obamacare.

Does Obama even GET Angry?
Nothing bothers him, which bothers us


Mr. President, we’re here today because you obviously have a serious issue with your anger.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m the best anger manager that you’ll ever meet.”

That’s the problem, sir. When the American people get angry, they’d like to know that you’re feeling
what they’re feeling. They’d like to see you lose your temper once in a while. Staying cool and unflappable
during a crisis is fine, but sometimes overmanaging anger can be just as unhealthy as undermanaging it.

“Of course I get angry. I get darn angry.”

And how might we know when that’s happening, Mr. President?

“When I say things like, ‘Hey, I’m just as angry as everybody else.’”

Clearly we’ve got some work to do. Let’s pretend this is a nationally televised press conference.
I’m going to say a phrase as an anger prompt, and I’d like you to react spontaneously, emotionally,
straight from the gut.

“Fine. Fire away.”

The first prompt is: Government shutdown.

“Reckless. Partisan. Blackmail. Unacceptable –”

Sir, with all due respect, dour disapproval isn’t the same thing as anger. The GOP shutdown caused
$24 billion in damage to the country’s economy. Didn’t you see the growth figures from last quarter?

“Yes, very disappointing. The whole thing was disappointing and unnecessary.”

Disgraceful is the word you’re looking for, Mr. President. Disgraceful and pathetic.

 Subject: Van Jones

Van Jones seemed like a real bright liberal voice four years ago. But, in the past year,
I've heard him call Rand Paul a hero, and say he respects Ted Cruz for standing by his principles.
Aside from the political stupidity of such statements, my problem with Van is that he can't seem
to recognize a phony. Even ones as big as Paul and Cruz.

Either that, or to paraphrase that old spawn-of-Satan, Bob Novak,
"Even a strong liberal will change when they start cashing those CNN paychecks."
 Dan L

I guess that's why CNN made Van Jones the liberal in their new "Crossfire."

That way, the liberal on TV can say, "Obama really screwed things up."

 Subject: Talking ACA with LA Rick

Here is a follow up to Thursday's email. I found out that federal tax subsidies for The ACA kick in
for anyone who makes under $46,000 a year for gross adjusted income, which means if you own a
business and a home as I do, you will have a lot of deductions and can get a credit even if you make
a decent living. No one told me that on Friday, either on the phone or on the website, so I actually
may be eligible for a credit.

I also found out that the new policies do include an annual checkup at no out of pocket expense,
which is not mentioned on the website, it just lists the co-pay prices of office visits after the deductible has been met.

The strange thing is that the tax credit will be based on estimated adjusted gross income for 2014.
Now as a small business owner I have no idea how much money I am going to make next year
let alone my adjusted gross income (which is after all deductions)

So people will have to guess how much they will make next year. The way it is supposed to work is that
if you guess too low, you will owe the extra money on your 2014 taxes, if you guess high The IRS will owe you money,

The IRS will then have to settle up with the providers. This is how it was explained to me.
It's hard for me to estimate how much money I will make next year as I'm sure it will be
for a lot of people so it could cause some bureaucratic problems.

Finally one of the people who wrote in questioned the plan I had, I do not know for certain that
they would have covered me 100% after the yearly out of pocket expense had been met, they told me
that on the phone, so it’s very possible they were lying. I did not read over the entire plan.

60 Minutes Benghazi Lies
No truths from America's whore media


That belated "60 Minutes" hit job on the Benghazi tragedy -- highly touted by Fox News,
Senator Lindsey Fabulous (R-SC), and others on the right -- is now under attack over serious credibility issues.

Graham used the “60 Minutes” report to justify calling Monday for additional hearings into Benghazi and
threatened to block a vote on Obama's nominees until lawmakers had heard from all Benghazi witnesses.

The WaHoPo's Karen DeYoung strongly calls into question the star witness promoted by Lara Logan,
who just happens to have a book to sell, has asked for money for his account, and told a completely
different tale in his official report on the night of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

The liar described his heroic efforts to save the besieged Americans at the Benghazi compound while
the attack was underway, scaling a 12-foot wall and taking down a terrorist with the butt end of a rifle.

So brave. So full of shit.

So what else is new?  
The American whore media would sell naked pictures of their mother being raped
if it meant a .01 boost in the ratings because, after all, we're in "sweeps weeks."

Obama has to fight the Republicans, the American whore media and half the Democrats,
which, interestiungly enough, was Hillary's situation in the summer of 2008.

The Republicans will never stop lying and the whore media will never stop lying.
If only we could get the Democrats to stop attacking their president.

A new book about those notorious American resisters and truth-tellers,
Dr. James Fetzer and Dr. Kevin Barrett.
Fetzer and Barrett, career academicians and longtime radio-show personalities,
in the past hosted a radio show called “The Dynamic Duo.”

It all comes from that day, 22 November 1963, at 12:30 PM in Dallas.
From that day we got Oklahoma City, we got 9/11 and Afghanistan and Iraq.
From that day we get this day, today — our world, our lives —
whatever is yet to come in Syria, Iran, perhaps even WWIII.

We can choose to watch it unfold on TV, or we can do something.
For years and years, Fetzer and Barrett have done everything they can.
This new book is a biography of Jim Fetzer and Kevin Barrett. But it is also a call to resistance:

World Series of Poker Tonight

It's one of the most exciting nights of the year at Casa de Bart.

There are SEVEN players still at the table, ready to split  $26,000,000
which is one of the biggest payout in sports.

(When Eldrick wins, does he even get $1M?)

The winner gets $8.3M, second is $5.1M, third is $3.7M, etc so you can see
why every hand had the crowd standing and stimpong and screaming like it's the
damn Superbowl and it is, just with MORE MONEY.

Watch these guys win $20M in chips on ONE HAND.
My money's on JC Tran, but anybody could win.


It's mind-blowing how often somebody wins a hueueueuge pot
when they only have a 2 or 5 percent chance of getting the right card.

If you like poker, it doesn't get any better than this.

 Subject: Building Obamacare website

Dear Bart, I have been in IT for many years. Here is how it works:

Management comes to you and says
'How long will it take you to do this and, by the way, we need it by November 1st?' 
So, you work backwards from that date, even though you know it probably can't be met

The next step is gathering requirements. This defines how the site will work.
This always takes longer than expected so the time at the end for testing gets compressed.

Once everyone agrees on the requirements the programmers take over. They have questions
and sometimes the requirements need to be revised so the whole thing starts over.
Or the business people change their minds on what they really wanted.
The schedule slips more so the testing time is reduced even more

Defects are tracked and fixed if there is time. 

Finally it is time to test. Oops, only two weeks left. There is no chance of delivering
a quality product at that point but nobody wants to admit it so you soldier on and
deliver a piece of crap. It was almost inevitable.

I have seen this literally go to the week of implementation before the team admitted it
couldn't be done and fessed up.  Imagine if the person you have to fess up to is the
President of the United States and the whole country is watching!!

 Subject: Steve B/Fixing Obamacare

It's more than personal info like address.
They want to know how much your Modified Adjusted Gross Income is, and then details on how to check that,
so there's no fraud. That's so they can determine if you qualify for the Tax Credits to make your premiums lower.

It's also the Doctor Lists - which even Anthem's CA website are never current with, simply because there are
so many Drs in CA, so with the constant traffic of new/old/dying/new contract/contract renewal/contract changes/contract
cancelations/taking new patients/not taking ..etc... even Anthem can't keep their own Dr lists up to date. Now multiply
that with however many companies are on each state's exchange. There are six here in Los Angeles County.

it's also the sheer TRAFFIC hitting these websites. Blizzard has a total of 241 North American servers people
can play World of Warcraft on, each one being able to handle  40,000 players at a time. They have 263 European ones. 
These people are paying to play a video game, not trying to buy life or death health insurance.
