    Who was it that still believes the fairy tale that the government is the people? DC exempting themselves from their own disastrous laws once again.

    Did you seriously expect them to do anything different? I would wait to see what OPM says about the matter before anything else.

    Maybe capitol hill needs a brain drain. It's not like any of those political lifer fuckwads are worth anything anyway. Fuck them all. I think we should just burn Washington to the ground, salt the earth, and move on.

    I always liked the guise of 'OMG! AMAZING!' he brings to the CE forum. Gives me a grin each time. Like he's bringing it to our attention and we're going to herald him as a quasi-savior and Bagger Champion.

    I'm willing to give a pass to everyone who voted for Obama in 2008 (they were just foolish), but everyone who voted for him again in 2012 owes the rest of us an apology for being an asshole.

    Let's remember that this is Obama's signature legislation. This is what he spent a 1/4th of his first term trying to rahm through. And again, he would've had a much more socialist version passed if those pesky blue dog dems didn't stand in his way before August recess. Once those damn teabaggers started invading those town hall forums and Obama had to call that special September session in Congress (that whole "You lie!" incident"), we all knew that it was going to take quite some time before some form of Obamacare got passed.

    And it didn't matter what Obama and the dems got through...as long as it basically eventually destroyed the entire private health insurance industry...they were good with it.

    Anyone who thought it was a good idea to put a Chicago politician in the white house, is an idiot. If you think about why he was elected in 2008, it had nothing to do with him or anything he did since he was pretty much a noob without any real type of record. He only got in because of the cult of personality that was created by the media.

    McCain would have been just as bad but it was funny that the Obamaites said they wouldn't vote McCain because his VP had the same level of foreign policy experience as Obama.

    I know all of that (I was firmly in the "fuck both of these frauds" camp during that election), but I'm willing to be graceful towards those first-time voters because after 8 years of Bush, they just wanted to believe in someone so badly and the media made that easy for them. Their emotions overwhelmed their judgement; it's a very human flaw and it happens to the best of us at least once in our lives. The second-time voters are just idiots who went out of their way to avoid seeing what a horrible President Barack Obama has been. Either that, or they just didn't care.

    Or they're black or guilty white liberals who will never accept
    that he's doing a bad job and was never qualified to hold office.

    We do not live by rule of law, because no one can go a day without breaking one of the laws that have been imposed on us.
    No one even knows all the laws that apply to everything we do. We live in a time of selective enforcement of law.-Jerry Pournelle

    Paleconservatives in the vein of Sam Francis, Kevin MacDonald and Pat Buchanan had this nailed to the wall:
    There would be a patchwork, anarchic enforcement of the law to benefit state connected people such as political donors, Democratic Party operatives, unions,
    and government entities. The common people who opposed the policy would be the ones who would have to use it which is the tyranny part of it.

    You didn't want it but we voted for it so you have to do it and we get a waiver. That's anarcho-tyranny in a sentence.

    Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, which is neither affordable with its trillion dollar price tag, nor lowers the price of health insurance and medical
    treatment for citizens nor offers care, approximately 1500 companies are on a "waivers list" that reads like a list of politically connected people.
    More than half of them have gone to union workers.
    Shocking.

    I think it's going to be interesting to see what really comes out about Obama once he leaves office. Just the shit we know about at this point is bad enough.

    No worries...Obama knows what he's doing...he is an economic scholar, after all.

    I'd mock this concept, but as a person who has anxiety, I base all my self diagnosis off what I learned from the show House.

    I'm amazed I still haven't bled from my rectum... well at least outside of my recreational activities.

    Well it has worked in other areas so they figured what the hell, people don't seem to care. We could use a complete brain drain and get rid of all of them.
