Yo, JoCo, Imma let you finish, but Sue Adams' letter was the best. letter. ever!!!
Prolly cause Big O's own OMB are guessing he's going to borrow around $9 trillion if he goes two terms. The better question is why liberals don't care about this at all. That's bad policy and bad politics.
I read that Billy Carter is going to announce that the G20 Anarchists-Democrats are, in fact, overwhelmingly motivated by racism.

Casady, I'd say the Tea Party protesters on the right are analogous to the G20 Anarchists on the left. Notice how the comments and commentary on Puffington Host are rather glowing. It's mainstream lib, no doubt. I think there was even a Van Jones spotting. How many arrests were made at all the various Tea Parties? How many in one day at G20. Interesting, let us agree.

Most liberals I know have pretty interesting lives and careers and seem to have better things to do than sit around and watch TV or listen to AM radio all day. Posted by: Casady | Sep 25, 2009 10:04:57 AM Amen, Brother!

The guy has also opened two restaurants, a few galleries, and played a large role in the redevelopment in the Crossroads. He's more qualified than the other hacks at city hall. I will grant you that the name "Stretch" does not really inspire confidence. Mr. Stretch would be more fitting for an adult.

I always wondered what THE Race Card was doing in the late 1970s. Guess he was president. I didn't see that one coming. Whispering and hajkar represent an unusually foolish strain of thought, namely that anyone who dared vote for Obama did so for racial reasons. That sounds reasonable, and we should also consider every GOP vote since Lincoln as foreshadowing of Obama and also a racist vote. To quote Mel Brooks, they're fighting with cardboard...

There is a very wide strain in the leftwing blogs that they should never admit that anything anyone on the left ever does is wrong, no matter what. Admitting fault, in this view, is acting weak. This is really stupid, in my opinion, mostly because some actions by some people are simply indefensible. Hence, VietVet and Conason defending underage sex slavery. It's wicked and wrong, sure, but it's also just stupid.
Hi Jim, I've always cared about the deficit. I care about them more now because they are far larger than ever before. Also, it's clear that democrats love to spend OTHER people's money and then claim the political benefit. It's unseemly. Look at the size of a leading democrat's house and tell me how he affords that on $400k a year. It's impossible.
THE Race Card should trade in all the time he spends writing stupid comments on this blog and sign up to tutor some needy children. Obama sayeth thus.

Nobody forced him to go uninsured. If he couldn't afford insurance, then get ready cause Obama will charge him for insurance anyway. Or fine him if he doesn't have the money. Maybe as a home owner he could have taken in a lodger or two to help cover the bills he claims he couldn't afford. And return the i-phone.
Forcing people to buy health insurance, and then fining them if they refuse, is the best bet for a constitutional challenge. Basically, if you are alive, you have to buy the coverage; there is no opt out. I'm not sure how that's gonna fly with the Roberts Court. I also assume that it will be wildly unpopular. I'm telling you, those 18-29 year olds who flocked to O are not going to like the sticker shock. Liberals are superb at spending other people's money, but when folks are going to be forced to cough up the cash themselves, we shall see.
On this specific Fox issue, I disagree with you. I saw the tape (online), and the woman says she committed murder. I don't see a problem with playing the tape. It also seems wildly beside the point anyway. As does the alleged fact that some Acorn offices turned the duo away. So far I've seen five Acorn offices attempt to aid and abet child prostitution. That's enough for me. And it's nice to see some actual investigative journalism. Beyond that, take your shots at Fox all you want. I think Cable news is stupid. I don't even have cable at home past channel 23, which means I don't get any of it. By choice! The hard left isn't taking this as well as Jim.

Nah, I only write on specific issues. I do not attack on most issues actually. Beat up Fox all you want. But Acorn was caught aiding and abetting child prostitution. It's hard to imagine a bigger evil in this world. Good riddance.

To be fair to Jim, I don't recall him ever calling himself unbiased. In fact, he's the polar opposite: he defends everything Obama says or does, no matter what. He's pure bias, but there's no law against that. I especially love the Acorn rebuttal: let's skip all the child prostitution and harp on some lady lying about killing her husband. Yep, he's really defending the Acornholers.

Obama has said repeatedly that his reform won't raise the deficit one dime. Everyone else believes it will cost hundreds of billions. The "savings" are not there. Even Bob Freaking Herbert admits it. These two ideas cannot be reconciled. There are other similar tall tales Obama is telling about his reform, but this one is 100 percent BS.
Toggle Commented Sep 17, 2009 on Think for yourselves at Unfettered Letters
Jimmy, when you can't even convince Bob Herbert that Obama is telling the truth, then you are left with only...yourself. "The president also said, as he estimated the cost of his proposal at $900 billion over 10 years, that he “will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits — either now or in the future.” I’m sure he means it. But I have not spoken to anyone, either on Capitol Hill or elsewhere, who believes that is doable. Now it may be that the public should not be so worried about the deficits. They had to be jacked up to get the country through this terrible economic crisis. And health care reform — real reform — is essential if long-term deficits are to be brought under control."

This requirement is not going to go over well at all, although the young and unwise who voted for O in droves will bear the main brunt of it. Some lessons can only be learned the hard way, I guess.
The point of the letter is that lawmakers and insurance commissioners routinely require insurance policies to cover certain items whether or not the person wants them. If consumers could pick and choose, they might be able to save themselves money by choosing only those services they want. Makes a lot of sense to me.
One lesson from the Joe Wilson outburst is that it's probably unwise to make a jackass out of yourself. Having said that, when the entire MSM refuses to question a single thing Obama says or does, it does lead to some frustration. And let's not even get started on the O-bots and Sheepocrats. A good example is the Baucus bill recently released, set to cost over $800 billion. Yet Obama promised a deficit neutral bill that will not cost one dime. Only idiots and liars believe the hype.

I went to Wizards games at Arrowhead and then at the T-Bones stadium, and the ones in KCK were sooooo much better. Many more fans, better atmosphere, and a better fan experience both before and after the games. If the Wizards are smart, they should stay in KCK. TIF Schmiff. KCK is 100 percent better for the fans.
I'll cut Serena some slack. Anyone who has ever played competitive tennis, or golf, knows what a frustrating and infuriating game it can be. So, I guess a fine and a rebuke are in order, but sports are tough. I see know reason not to let it go. Kanye, though, needs a rootbeer summit with BHO and Taylor. Jackass indeed.

THE RaceCard says: "I'm not anti-Semitic, I just hate Israel." P.S. "And Asians too!" The Age of Obama is making some of us cuckoo.

Pre-Obama: "Dissent is the highest form of Patriotism!!!" Age of Obama: "Dissent is RACISM!!!" Yeah, I think we had it much better pre-Obama.
