My B-I-L was ranting about Obamacare REQUIRING all this unnecessary medical testing even though he's on Medicare. He was whining that the Dr required him to have some more tests run!! He remarked he got my baseline tests years ago, why is he requiring new ones?? I told him all that says is "He was healthy THEN" but doesn't say squat about NOW !! OMG ! I was stunned. WTF do they think, their health NEVER changes and he's in his 70s !! It's totally FKING ILLOGICAL !!
#2 Then he told me this "My doctor told me last week when I was in to see him that a CPA patient of his had a routine blood test come back positive for drugs. Four days later, the man's national association was on the phone with the doctor wanting all the details on the blood test. How did they get this information and what business is it of their's. This crap didn't happen before Obamacare and we haven't seen the worst of it yet!!! "
The CPA guy tested + for Drugs and he wants to know why the guy was put on the hot seat !! It was probably required by LAW that any + tests have to be reported to authorities ! And WhoTF has been pushing more mandatory drug testing and "law and order" society ?? ah GOTP !! duh !! Just like they wanted all the Patriot Act until BO became president !!
I replied to his email, but I doubt it registered… NO logic what so ever in his complaints ! The cause of the disability - Fking Fox News !!
But, Bush isn't in charge now. Evidently the current administration, which has been in office over five years, now is continuing, at least, with the same or similar policies. We may have voted for this group and like his policies but we must still keep watching them carefully. Also we can't can't keep comparing to the old power mongers . They are are the ones to watch now.
There are 10 kinds of people. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
You know once something gets instituted it's very hard to reverse. YES BO is in charge, and he can by EO change some things like GitMO (which I'm very unhappy about.) However if he tried to overturn or repeal the Patriot Act or to roll the big $$ boondoggle- Homeland Security back into the CIA and FBI - the GOP and chicken hawks would have a "puzzy riot "!!
But I pointed this out to show the hypocrisy !! Bush starts it and they're ALL hung ho for it and it WAS pointed out at the time, there'd eventually be a D in the White house. But they blindly plodded on !! NOW many are all POed and whining about "big brother" etc. FK they're the ones that started the whole BS !! Torture and ALL !!
Same with my BIL, . . . oh he 's all for random testing people for drugs (mainly blacks & minorities) … except when it might be him or someone he knows… then it's "big brother" all over again. These types of whiners don't have any brains at ALL !! Dummies when it comes to policies, justice, or the Constitution !! (doesn't matter WHO is in power). . . and Fox further "poisons" their pea brains !!
Keeping a weather eye on any administration is essential. I hate that Obama is still killing people more or less at random via drone strikes. I hate that Obama is still jailing people in Guantanamo without judicial review of any sort. I hate that Obama refused to accept public funding in the last election. I hate that Obama is imposing immigration laws more strictly than any president ever has. I hate that Obama is . . . . I could go on and on and on. But the alternative is so much worse, IMHO, that there's no way on earth that I'd vote for any of the Rep suckers.
I'm facing a real conundrum in our gubernatorial race this year. There are three people who are viable democrats in the primary. The one I like the most is the most liberal one (surprise surprise!!). He is vocally for equal pay for equal work. He is vocally for supporting unions. He is vocally for supporting same-sex marriage. He is vocally for funding public education and cutting back as much as is possible on the covert privatization of education via charter schools.
I'm pretty sure I'll vote for him in the primary.
But if he gets chosen to run against the current governor, a real troglodyte (I miss Trog, by the way), I seriously doubt that he'd win in the general election. We're called Pennsyltucky for a reason, after all. Four more years of Gov. Troglodyte might just sink this state beyond the hope of recovery.
What to do, what to do.

Heard that many on right are whining about the land being closed to prevent extinction of a rare desert tortoise. Checked it out and it was declared off limits for grazing ... in 1989 !! SO that means he ignored a federal order for 4 years while paying the fees, and another 21 afterwards paying nothing.
SO what's more important- a 100 head of cows or an entire species ??
and the other claim is his ancestry of the land back to 1877. The ONLY land he owns is 150 acres near the river he grows melons on. The other grazing land his family never owned. He lost several court cases but refuses to accept any of them. What an azzhole !! No wonder the LMB is fed up with him !! they've been trying to be civil to the guy for 2 decades !!
Slap a freeze on all his assets. He's just a western welfare king !
Course if GW were still POTUS, Fox wouldn't say squat !!
Bundy Timeline Got a lot from here. He does NOT graze cows on HIS 150 acres, grows melons there…he's been using the Fed Land for the cows. I saw this kind of BS abuse under Reagan… let the private sector rape Govt. land for pennies… worst was cyanide (CN) poisoning of an area a gold mining company was using near Yellowstone Natl Park… they paid pennies for the use. Used CN to extract the gold and made NO efforts to clean it up ! I'm sure Reagan got a sizable contribution from this company - they got the gold and the taxpayers got the shaft !!
#2 I'll bet these militant bast ids were all for the Bush's Desert Storm and invading Iraq. SO if they don't like the big Fed Govt sticking their nose into their affairs - i.e. on land the Govt owns INSIDE its own borders - then how TF do they justify the Fed sticking their nose into a sovereign country's business 1/2 way around the world ?? (Iraq invasion) They're Fk-ing hypocrites !
The guy wants free land to graze on but doesent really own much. . That is what you said David.
That's what I'm seeing. Read the article and tell me how you interpret it, Dave. it IS complex.
