Posted this before but a fresher wouldn't hurt. This will be an hour well spent.

If you still want to talk to the cops for any reason ever after having watched this, you need your head examined.

Had my plan canceled because of BHO-care bullshit.

New plan mandates prescription drugs (I used to select one without this cz I have no need for prescription coverage), and all the other crap that makes it valid under this insanity.

New deductible is $600 (used to be 0).
PCP co-pay is 20 (same), specialist co-pay 40 (x2 what it used to be).
Coverage is 80/20 (used to be 100%).
Max out of pocket is 6K.

And finally, premium cost is up 23% on the year, and I believe this is just the beginning. Mind you, this is a state-sponsored option. Without that, cost would be closer to double 2013.

Fuck you very much, Mister President!

So, Mayor Bill DeBlasio, eh.

Hope-n-change, local style: a no-executive-experience talking suit with "proper" racial setup (family this time), running within a population with serious incumbent fatigue on promising tax hikes on the rich and free shit for his constituents...will now manage a place with giant financial responsibilities and hard decisions to be made.

Where have I seen this setup before...Did it work?

I don't know what you think about the Trayvon Martin case, but one thing is for fucking certain -- our "media", "press" and whatever else these pieces of shit call themselves are, well, pieces of shit. As if anyone needed any more proof.

Oh Yeah

Al Gore, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama go to heaven:
God addresses Gore first. "Al, what do you believe in?"
Gore replies: "Well, I believe I won the 2000 election, but that it was your will that I did not serve. And I've come to understand that now."
God thinks for a second and says: "Very good. Come and sit at my left."
God then addresses Clinton. "Bill, what do you believe in?"
Clinton replies: "I believe in forgiveness. I've sinned, but I've never held a grudge against my fellow man and I hope no grudges are held against me."
God thinks for a second and says: "You are forgiven, my son. Come and sit at my right."

Then God addresses Obama. "Barack, what do you believe in?"

Obama replies: "I believe you're in my chair."

Поехал вчера, сукнахбл, открывать велосипедный сезон. Выехал на трассу, которая вдоль Белта от Knapp идёт на восток...проехал сто метров -- и всё. Там сплошной пиздец -- как на Rockaway...Всё засыпано парой футов песка, как-будто Сэнди была вчера. Пляж поднялся на метр. Мусор везде. А самое главное -- то, что осталось от трассы, что не смыто, засыпано песком, покуда глаза видят. Поднял-было велик и понёс его, но, блядь, передумал -- неясно, сколько нести, и ещё менее ясно, что там за поворотом. Дикие безбашенные мексы едут прямо по Белту на великах -- я это в гробу ведел, собьют нахуй и не заметят, причем обратно надо было бы возвращаться против движения и с солнцем в лицо...

Так что мэр наш, душка нахуй, 50 миллионов на борьбу со злобным оскалом NRA не пожалел...а так чтоб по прямым обязанностям велополосу почистить, так это уж извините. Я, блядь, даже не говою положить новый асфальт, Боже упаси. Это из заоблачных мечтаний. Хотя бы уберите, суки, песок со старого раздолбанного асфальта, который смыло в нескольких местах ещё во время Айрин...

Скотобаза, а не мэрия.

Rest in peace, old bird.

Pay no heed to all the lefty progressive socialist union-supporting other-people's-wealth sharing dirt bags having their dance now because they sure as shit couldn't have one when you were driving, and that's what matters.

As Lewis Black once said, "The only thing worse than a Democrat or a Republican is when those pricks work together".

In the light of upcoming fiscal cliff "negotiations" -- 'nough said.

So I am guessing California can now go completely nuts with "rich people's" money -- a trifecta of a Democratic Governor and Democratic super-majorities in both chambers of the legislature allows for just about anything. I am sure they will very, very shortly solve all of their budget deficits, and pensions, and schools, and all the rest, you just wait:

California voters made more history on election day, giving Democrats what appeared to be gains in Assembly and Senate races that would provide a two-thirds majority in both chambers. That’s enough to let them pass most legislation, including tax measures, without Republican cooperation. The last time the state’s legislature was controlled with a supermajority of the same party was in 1933

Four more years of this worthless empty fucking suit.

Had a post-apocalyptic beer last night with colleagues.

Conversation steered towards gas lines and prices, and "gouging". I said that the government should allow outsiders to bring in gas at a premium to ensure supply. All my colleagues were against it, because that would be unfair, meaning only the wealthy would get the gas at the high prices the station would charge. I said the bottom line is it would be fair, but there would be no gas. They said it's better if people wait for hours at a gas station but know that everyone's chance to get said gas is the same, rich or poor. They also said that if gas prices were up, people would start going crazy because they won't be able to afford it, leading to increase in violence. They also had a problem with people making money at the time of disasters, be it oil/gas producers or the station owners.

I kept saying that no matter what happens, if there is no supply, there is no gas on the ground for people to have, fair or not. The question is -- how do you ensure increased supply? You have to pay a premium, because to me the laws of supply and demand don't stop working because a crisis is on...I said that if they had a problem with prices going up at the pump, perhaps the government can shield the consumers from the increase by paying that premium delta direct to suppliers -- that way they can ensure supply and ensure that everyone pays the same at the pump, maintaining fairness.

Amazingly enough, my colleagues had a problem with that too -- "imagine the PR disaster for the supplier if people found out the oil company charged government extra at the time of crisis". "But there would be gas" -- I said. Still, I don't think I made a dent there.

I am not big on economy, but fuck -- why do people have a problem with crisis-time premiums? Why do they think that supply and demand just magically stop working during crisis times? Why, for the love of God, is it better to have no gas (or little gas) and wait in line for hours to ensure "fairness" than let someone make a profit by supplying gas-starved areas??

And mind you -- these are educated people from financial services industry talking...

Got a notice from my HC provider -- they will be asking NYS for a -- ready? -- 46% increase in premiums. And I thought 35% or so last year was a lot.

Affordable care my ass, Mr President.

“Some Individuals, by the Smiles of Providence or some other Means, are enabled to roll in their four wheel’d Carriages, and can support the expense of good Houses, rich Furniture, and Luxurious Living. But is it equitable that 99, rather 999, should suffer for the Extravagance or Grandeur of one? Especially when it is considered that Men frequently owe their Wealth to the impoverishment of their Neighbors?”

-- A writer for the New-York Gazette, in the middle of the deep crisis of 1765
