Obamacare Opt-Out

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka, “Obamacare” is not a health insurance plan. It’s a fucking law. The “Patient Protection” part does things like end lifetime caps, so the insurance company can’t cut off your care while you’re in the middle of a cancer treatment program. It got rid of pre-existing conditions, so an insurance company can’t refuse to cover you if you’re shopping for insurance but you have diabetes. The “Affordable Care” part created a marketplace for health insurance corporations to compete for your patronage, naturally lowering costs. New taxes on individuals making over $200,000 (families & corporations making over $250,000) will also help to cover the cost of insuring more people. Plus other taxes. And 85% of Americans won’t see a tax increase at all. Also, the health insurance you purchased through the ACA has a tax that goes to help fund the ACA. My platinum plan that I purchased through the federal exchange (because Georgia Republicans hate people and refused to implement a state exchange), which includes that tax, is still only $300 per month – and that’s without any subsidies. Not remotely possible to afford as a self-employed individual before the ACA. I’m happy to help others afford health care. It may not be mentioned it in the Constitution, but neither were cars or cell phones. And a million other things. If you don’t view health care (& welfare) as a human right, then you’re just a selfish prick.

More ranting after the jump, then on to the fun part.

Fucking Liberals

Yeah. You heard me.

Fucking liberals forced me to fucking defend George W. Bush. I will never forgive them.

But facts are facts.

For my 200th post, I thought I’d take a break from bashing Republicans. Most people think I’m a Liberal because I’m always pointing out that Republicans are either wrong, liars or straight-up scumbags. No. I just point out facts. Or, at least, I try to. I can’t help it if Republicans are wildly more wrong about facts (intentional or otherwise) than Liberals.

There was a satirical article about the things that hypocritical FOX-watchers think. It was good. I had one issue – there was a photo of President Bush kissing King Abdullah. You know the one. Photoshopped. I pointed out this fact in the comments section. Someone said I was wrong. Words happened. Lots of insanely stupid, circular logic, evidence-denying words. All in the name of being correct.

Oh, and I was blamed several times of doing what they were doing, which is called ‘projection.’ Left or Right, blind obedience makes you stupid.

Side note: I’ve decided not to call Republicans “Conservative” anymore because none of their policies are conservative, so I would be lying if I called them Conservative. When they call themselves “Conservative,” they are lying.

The Gynotician

I fucking lost it on this guy.

If he was someone I knew, maybe I would have been more, shall we say, calm. But it was a friend of a friend, so fuck him.

I’ve fucking had it with this damn hypocritical, fact-denying, self-righteous, uneducated, misogynistic stupidity.

Chris Christie Was Here

I’ll never understand parents that bestow their children with first names similar to their surnames.

I wonder why people feel the need to make up stories about all the Obama “scandals,” when he hasn’t done anything wrong, but feel the need to go out of their way to give NJ Governor Chris Christie “the benefit of the doubt” when he’s obviously guilty as fuck.

Ha Ha! No, I don’t. They’re called Republicans.

This discussion is pretty damn entertaining. And holy shit does it fly off on wild, non-Chris Christie tangents. I tried to keep it on track, but I also kept proving them wrong, so they had to keep changing the subject.

Agreeing to Disagree

The Sochi Winter Olympics starts today.

Here’s a post from the London 2012 Summer Olympics. (Yes, I have a lot of conversations on backlog.) It's relatively short. I thought this would be an appropriate time to post it.

A friend makes a point. A friend of his says it’s not valid just because he doesn’t want it to be. I state facts to support my friend’s point. His friend says the facts shouldn’t matter because, well, they just shouldn’t.
