Morale matters even in metagame. Very meta.

From the #DeclineOfWesternCivilization  file, I add this rather pointed example of the modern Western confusion of Freedom and License and the bad philosophy that is radical individualism

Speeling Maturs.

Also... if you're drinking at 7am (even "Blody" Mary's and Mimosas), you probably have a problem.

Here's a prediction. I'll file this away and check back in 5-10 years to see how accurate or off-base I was.

The Obamacare trainwreck will continue and the web site and marketplace fiascos will not be fully resolved and those few people trying to get insurance through the site will still be frustrated and thwarted.

Insurance companies will continue dumping people by the hundreds of thousands (I saw BC/BS dropped 300,000, another agency said today they dropped 76,000) who are on unprofitable policies.

Businesses will continue laying off full time people or slashing hours back to part time and reducing the benefits they offer to comply with the bare minimum of the Employer Mandate when that finally kicks in. Unemployment will continue to grow as well as the number of working age people not working (a shell game the Administration uses to hide the millions of people who have given up trying to find work).

When the individual mandate kicks in, millions will find out they are in violation and there will be howling and screaming and gnashing of teeth. They will rush to try to get insurance but fail due to the ongoing marketplace fiasco.  Someone will sue for an injunction and either the HHS will relent or else the USSC will get involve and grant a a temporary injunction and ask Congress to fix the problem.

Congress will be forced to act and Obamacare will be gutted or re-written or otherwise changed significantly.

The end result will be:
 * Millions more will be uninsured than were uninsured when this whole nonsense started years ago.
 * Hundreds of thousands will have lost their jobs or be forced to take a lesser job or fewer hours ("underemployment") 
 * Insurance companies, claiming chaos with the government and regulations, will ratchet up insurance rates causing them to skyrocket -- horribly slamming the middle class and small businesses
 * Democrats will howl about the poor and the GOP will roll over and Medicaid will greatly expand to cover some of the millions of uninsured -- effectively becoming a de-facto single payer Government-run health care system that is horribly mismanged, dysfunctional and over 80% wasteful
 * Deficit and Debt will continue to skyrocket with current entitlements plus the huge, rapid growth in Medicaid entitlements

In short, everything will be way worse than if we had never done this in the first place.

By "defacto catastrophic insurance" I was not talking about ban on plans that don't cover adult kids, I was talking about the preexisting condition provision. Just wait to buy insurance until something catastrophic happens, then they gotta take you.  To a "young invincible" the fee/tax might end up a much better value than buying an actual insurance plan.

This post is a fantastic skewer of the Global Warming nonsense train.

"From grant-hungry science institutions and environmentalist pressure groups to carbon traders, EU commissars, and big businesses with their snouts in the subsidies trough, many vested interests have much to lose should the global warming gravy train be derailed.'
From Thursday's Daily Telegraph On Friday the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change delivers its latest verdict on the state of man-made global warming. Though the details are a secret, one thing is clear: the version of events you will see and hear in much of the media, especially from partis pris organisations like the BBC, [...]

Delingpole nailed it. I'm looking forward to his commentaries after the IPCC report is released on Friday.

This hawk lighted just outside my office window. This time of year the Texas Red Hawks are mating and the storms make them edgy and nervous.  As you can see in the background, there's a large thunderstorm rolling in so he/she was probably resting a bit before moving on before the storm hit.

I've had all but the toilet flushing guy. That's gotta be... weird.

Hearing the first inklings of blame on the big, mean insurance companies for all the ACA woes. And of course that ultimately means it is Bush's fault (shut up, don't ask stupid questions).

Ultimately this will lead to arguments similar to "the only way to fix this mess and really help the poor is to move to a single payer system and put the insurance companies out of business."

If the administration would submit a budget, it could easily solve that problem. Since the white house has chosen to shirk its responsibility in order to cheaply blame congress for everything, we have a lot of do-nothing responsibility-shirking government going on.

Just heard a comedian from a few years ago saying (paraphrased):

"Bush is the WORST President ever. The worst president of all presidents, be it homeowners' association president, PTA president, or kennel club president. There is nothing this guy can't make worse. Can you believe it?"

He then goes on to give a litany of all the horrible things Bush was doing:

- Gas prices are THROUGH THE ROOF! (they're much higher now)
- The budget is out of control (first few years of this administration spent more than all 8 of the Bush years combined)
- House foreclosures everywhere (rate still high, but not quite has high as 2008, home ownership rate at a 15 year low in 2013)
- PATRIOT Act (renewed and expanded by this administration)
- Guantanamo Bay (kept open, remodeled, and currently being expanded)

He briefly mentioned Iraq which is definitely something Bush did worse.

I found it ironic that most of the stuff he listed as "worst president ever" material is being done by this administration and done worse.
