Obamacare Simplifed Application Making The Worthless Much More User Friendly

April 30, 2013

The first draft was as mind-numbing and complex as tax forms. Now the Obama administration is unveiling a simplified application for health insurance benefits under the federal health care overhaul.Details to be released Tuesday include a three-page short form that single people can fill out, administration officials said. Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner, also overseeing  the rollout of the health care law, called it “significantly shorter than industry standards.” Currently, applying for health insurance individually entails filling out a lengthy questionnaire about your health. Under Obama’s overhaul, insurers will no longer be able to turn away the sick, or charge them more. The health care questions will disappear, but they’ll be replaced by questions about your income. Consumers who underestimate their incomes could be in for an unwelcome surprise later on in the form of smaller tax refunds.

April 30, 2013

Toasting with new friends just got a futuristic, and slightly creepy,  upgrade.

Budweiser recently unveiled the “Buddy Cup,” a pint glass with a built-in  chip that connects to Facebook. The cup automatically connects people on  Facebook when they clink glasses with another “Buddy Cup” user, creating a  virtual friendship instantly. Feedback toward the Facebook-integrated glass has been mixed.“This is a bad idea, @Budweiser,” writes ecarlson23. “I don’t want my drunk life  posted all over facebook.”

Audrey Ferguson Runs Up $400,000 Medicaid EMS Taxi Fair

April 28, 2013

DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) – A Live 5 News investigation has uncovered alleged ambulance abuse in Dorchester County. The Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office says 51-year-old Audrey Ferguson of the Dorchester community has called EMS at least 100 times in the last seven years. Investigators say Ferguson was faking illness, just to get a free ride to downtown Charleston. Officials say just about every time she asked to be taken to a hospital. Soon medics saw a disturbing pattern and got suspicious. Ferguson apparently never even went into the hospital to get treated. Officials say what Medicaid doesn’t pay, taxpayers will have foot the rest of the bill, more than $400,000.

Rep Hank Johnson Laments A World Without Balloons

April 27, 2013

Speaking on the House floor yesterday, Representative Hank Johnson (D., Ga.) stood up for some of the most important victims of congressional gridlock: children’s birthday parties and comedians trying to make their voices high-pitched. Discussing a bill to continue the federal government’s sales from the National Helium Reserve, Johnson intoned, “Imagine, Mr. Speaker, a world without balloons.”

Ask The Eye, Tell Your Husbands Mistress Time To Piss Off

April 26, 2013

Dear Eye View, In less than a week, my husband’s mistress will lose her home. She and her three children will be homeless, as she lost her job several months ago and has no living relatives. My husband ended their affair four months ago, when I found out. But he had promised to help make some sizable mortgage payments to buy her some more time. Now that the affair has ended, we talked about whether or not he should still “honor” those payments. We agreed that, for the sake of our marriage, he should not. I know he feels guilt over the false promise he made, but he seems to feel a lot of shame about his recent behavior in general, which is one of the reasons we are making a go of it. Because there are children involved, we considered doing something. If we cut back on certain luxuries, we could afford to at least buy her a few more months. Do we have an obligation to help this woman? Am I awful for not wanting to help her, knowing she has young kids?

—Heartbroken and Morally Confused

Dear HMC

I understand your concern. So you’re thinking of going without, to provide a financial gift to this woman who helped almost wreck your marriage. Maybe she’s a fast enough worker that if you tide her over for a few months she can find another married mark who might pick up her bills. Regardless, if you had not found out about the affair there would  been a drain on your finances without your consent anyway. Tell here to contact the state and  time to piss off..

Hope this helps




Las Vegas Mental Hospital Handing Out One Way Bus Tickets, What Happens In Vegas Not Staying

April 24, 2013

San Francisco city attorney Dennis Herrera announced Monday that he is going to begin an investigation into Rawson Neal Psychiatric Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada following accusations that the hospital has been providing patients with one-way Greyhound tickets to other states. The Sacramento Bee has run an investigative series into the hospital and claims that Rawson Neal has discharged around 1,500 patients this way. In one case, a man being treated in Rawson Neal was put on a bus to Sacramento with only three days worth of medication for his schizophrenia, depression and anxiety. The man said the doctor recommended the trip to California because the state has better health care than Nevada. Meanwhile, officials in Los Angeles are debating opening their own investigation into the matter, as a majority of the patients shipped to California ended up in L.A.

Cops Take Giant 2-Pound Joint, Students Maintain It Was A Joint Project

April 23, 2013

There is a lot of marijuana and then there is a lot of marijuana. The Epoch Times reported on Monday, April 22, 2013, that cops confiscated a 2-pound joint from students at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and they weren’t happy about it. The kids, that is, not the cops.

The police were accused of “harassment” for taking the 2-pound joint away from the California students, and others were scared. Not scared of going to jail so much, but scared of going to court. “Oh dude, we’re going to court, man; we’re totally going to court,” one of the students said.

Apparently, more than 1,000 people showed up for a 4/20 festival on campus at UCSC, and one student obviously just wanted to be prepared for everyone.
Students complain it was a joint project.


Professor O’Brien Believes Police Used Too Much Force On Terrorists, We’re Not Worthy We’re Not Worthy

April 23, 2013

Professor Ruth O’Brien from The City University of New York thinks we may have been a little too tough on the Boston Marathon Bomber who was killed by the police. O’Brien, who’s the author of the forthcoming book, Out of Many, One: Obama and the Third American Political Tradition, chided the Boston police for using “too much force” when they killed, Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Sure, he may have killed a lot of people and their lives may have been at risk apprehending him, but they should have been a little kinder and gentler.
Professor O’Brien believes being kindler and gentler creates world-wide respect.
