No love for NY Times op-ed
writer whose insurance was cancelled

American Thinker, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/11/2013 6:02:00 PM

Perhaps the most entertaining facet of watching the scales fall from liberal´s eyes about Obamacare is the absolute shock they experience when their liberal friends chastise them for complaining. Lori Gottlieb, a contributing editor for The Atlantic and a psychotherapist, writes in the NY Times about her conversation with Blue Anthem insurance and the reaction by her "friends" on Facebook when she posted about it: THE Anthem Blue Cross representative who answered my call told me that there was a silver lining in the cancellation of my individual P.P.O. policy and the $5,400 annual increase that I would have to

It will work out. Lorri does not yet understand the wisdom of social engineering.

When the middle class is made poor they will feel rich because everything will be free.

And the rich will then feel poor because they will have to pay for everything they receive.

Hey - she´ll get free birth control pills and gender re-assignment surgery along with that whopping premium increase. Why are liberals complaining?

#2 Even Lori will come to a full understanding after she no longer needs birth control pills, and there´s no undoing gender reassignment surgery ~ which usually isn´t all that successful so she won´t be able to use her subsidies on condoms!

Why should she continue to be forced to pay premiums for these things that don´t apply to her ~

~ outside of our big horselaugh at her stupidity, what´s in that for anyone.

Maybe we should stop her mistakes now before she wastes all our money.

FTA: "The redistribution of wealth should be celebrated - even if it is murderously ruinous to your family´s financial condition." Libs have no problem with redistribution of wealth as long as it´s the wealth of someone else. They can´t grasp the notion of the equal distribution of poverty when their own wealth is taken from them and given to the lo-fos.

The "liberal" mindset celebrates redistribution, because that is their religion.

Envy is a major part of natural religion: "Take from thy neighbor, especially if he has more than you." And "If there is a God, he must favor redistribution to you from anyone who has more." This is the Communist, Socialist, Progressive creed.

Too many "Jewish" and "Christian" clergy have betrayed the God of the Torah and the New Testament, and have added their voice to the anti-Biblical view of the pagans liberals.

Charitable giving must always be without compulsion, and God requires the giver to monitor the merits and demerits of the recipients, nurturing the godly and requiring the ungodly to show solid evidence of a good faith effort to follow wisdom.

My charitable funds will run out long before I come to the end of my own list of deserving recipients. The state religion would consider my beneficiaries to be bigots, "haters," and "mentally ill" for believing the ideals that God has given, and would send them to "sensitivity training" (re-education camps).

The state religion can go to h*ll! And can take the phony synagogues and churches with them! I look to the faithful remnant to bring genuine reformation to the churches and synagogues!

So you see, Lori, that we on the Right aren´t just a bunch of selfish jerks after all. We knew Obamacare would cost VASTLY more than advertised, though even I didn´t expect a $5400 hit. See, Lori, that´s how it unfailingly works out with social engineering - somebody promises something to somebody else "and it will pay for itself." Never does. Never even comes close. Always runs from ten to a hundred to several thousand times more than presaged, and even as the costs keep on skyrocketing, we get told by the savants that "we just haven´t ´invested´ enough yet." IOW: Whatever it costs now ain´t a drop in the bucket to what it´s GOING to cost down the road.

Think I´m exaggerating, Lori? You´re too young to remember the Sixties when LBJ´s War on Poverty go going, and how we were going to do away with poverty forever, and how in the long run we´d SAVE money. Started out in the few billion range; 50 years later it´s costing us a few trillion a year, Lori. You liberals are always shocked, SHOCKED to find gambling going on in the back rooms, and by the time a handful of you wake up, it´s completely unstoppable because a very large (and voting) constituency has grown up around it - one that not infrequently votes not once, not twice, but several times.

In case you miss the point, Lori, it´s C-O-R-R-U-P-T-I-O-N writ large, and anybody who tries to point this out gets tarred by New York Times op-editors. You may even know a few colleagues who have done the tarring. You may even see one every morning when you look in the mirror. Now you sing a sad song as your, uh, "friends" talking about the Boston Fire Department.

Happy sails, Lori. Reality can be a real b-word.

She´s complaining about $5400 increase. I´ve done the math. I predict it will increase another 3k$ every year for several more to come. Until she can´t afford it at all.

Hey, Lori´s a psychotherapist?

Things will even out for her, at least: now that Obamacare covers mental health issues, she´ll get patients she wouldn´t have had before, so she´ll have more money to pay for her health insurance.

Oh, wait. Lori might not want to provide her services at the rates Obamacare authorizes.

Too bad for Lori.

The is is the credo of the radical communitarians that the US is now being run by. Individual rights, indivdual concerns are "selfish." So get with the program and feel good about your sacrifices.

How about calling them what they are? Communists. They´re not "communitarians". These people are so history-deprived, they don´t even know what a Communist is, let alone how dangerous such "communitarian" thinking is. They think they´re virtuous.

I wonder what they would do if I knocked on their door and said, "I want a third of your paychecks from now on". Would they say, "Sure, I´m okay with that"? Or would they say, Hell no?

The redistribution of wealth is going exactly as Obama planned, while people are scratching their heads wondering how stupid this administration is and wailing when their own oxes get gored. But someone else´s ox is just find. Gore away.

Lori, It´s all about a means to an end. Haven´t your heard you have to crack a few eggs to make an omelet? Well, Obama intends to crack a lot of eggs, yours included. This is just the beginning too. Wait until you need a medical procedure that is denied because it is not cost effective. When it´s your life on the line, will you be as supportive of him? Or will you like your fellow travelers be calling in every favor you can? Connections will matter. They always do under a system like this. That is what your brand of equality brings but that will be okay, won´t it? Self-preservation trumps fairness when push comes to shove. Equality to progressives has been and always will be conditional. Hypocrisy is a bedrock of liberal thinking. The well connected will do okay. The rest of us, not so much.

I haven´t yet heard anyone mention the untended consequence of reduced disposable income.

Hundreds of bucks per month taken out of families´ income doesn´t bode well for the economy. One used to be able to buy a new flat-screen or an appliance with that money. Maybe it´s the difference in getting a mortgage or not.

Of course, Justice Roberts could rule that we buy those items anyhow.

As part of Obamacare, a pool for uninsured with preexisting conditions (PCIP) was started. After 3 years the number of people enrolled has grown to 100,000. The point is that no matter how sick, there is a maximum price the market will bear for health care. The people in the program now will continue into Obamacare because they will save some on premiums.

But the millions who lose their existing coverage are going to have to think long and hard about paying so much more for Obamacare. By February of March, something is going to have to give.

I sometimes wonder if any liberal, progressive or what ever they claim to be, has ever read a history book. If the have, they should have noticed that every government that has acted in the way that they want has failed. There has NEVER been a successful socialist government in the recorded history of mankind. And even though GOD has commanded "Thou shall not covet", mankind has and does always covet. And therein lies the problem. There will always be someone that wants what someone else has, and expects it to be given to him for free. Just like the lo-fo´s do.

U.S. Border Control agents detained 147 people suspected of being in the country illegally from a stash house Thursday afternoon in Alton — shortly after 81 people were found hiding in makeshift huts in McAllen. The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.
