Down in the dumps: Target
pushes workers into ObamaCare

Fox News, by Chris Stirewalt

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/22/2014 7:59:08 PM

President Obama can’t complain about the way Target handled the announcement, congratulating its part-time employees on the news that they would be “transitioned” to the government-run insurance market under ObamaCare. Plus, the company is offering $500 vouchers and the aid of store-paid advisors to help them navigate their way into the new entitlement program. But even though Target softened the blow and didn’t press the ObamaCare panic button, the news is bad for the troubled health law. The next wave of ObamaCare cancellations is underway and it’s going to be pretty massive by all estimates. Large employers liked the idea

#1 you can´t blame Target.

Target has to make sure that they do not upset the commie-zars in Washington.

Would YOU like a (pardon the pun) a TARGET on you from this Fascist regime?

Obamacare has never been anything but a marriage of convenience between big government ideologues and big business interests. But it is very short-sighted of big business to get into bed with the devil the way they have done. One thinks of high level corporate executives as being savvy and realistic, yet here again, as many times in the past, e.g. their alliance with Hitler and the National Socialists, they have gravely underestimated their adversaries. This unnatural union cannot last. The radical Left will never stop until everything is nationalized and socialized. Perhaps those in business who signed on to Obamacare realize this and are only stalling, figuring(hoping) that they themselves will be long gone before the final act arrives.

Those poor people! By forcing them to the Obamacare sight, now they´re facing identity theft risks from both their place of employment and their new health care acquisition location. Yikes!

I lost my health insurance thru my part-time job. I´m not signing up for Ocare. I´ve been without health insurance before so it is no big deal. I figure that Ocare will rot from the inside out before too long.

I am sure Target has recouped 100 the dues it pays to the National Chamber of Commerce and slush funds to the Republican National Committee for no-action on repealing Obamacare, and legalization of 20 million illegals to drive down wages of the lowest paid unskilled workers. Stock price has to be going up after these cost savings are shifted over to the US Taxpayers.

Lawsuit: Disney parks

ANAHEIM – How do you let visitors with autism, who sometimes have great trouble waiting in line for theme park attractions, go to the front while thwarting other guests who cheat? Disney said it tried to solve the issue in October with a new policy, igniting furor from some quarters. Last week, 16 families with autistic children filed a lawsuit against Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, which includes Anaheim’s Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, saying the new policy violates the Americans with Disabilities Act. The suit, which was filed in Los Angeles, seeks an unspecified amount of money and a

The Number of Uninsured Is Dropping,
but Not Thanks to Obamacare Exchanges
Atlantic, by Philip Bump    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/9/2014 2:09:49 PM     Post Reply
Two new surveys clearly show that the number of people who lack health insurance in the United States has dropped — but largely not because people have enrolled in Obamacare exchanges. (Snip) What Gallup doesn´t dive into is where people are gaining insurance. That´s where the new survey from the RAND Corporation comes in. Interestingly, RAND discovered that the vast majority of new insurance coverage came not from enrollments in the Obamacare exchanges, as you might expect. Instead, it was heavily from expansions of coverage by employers and from the expansion of Medicaid — a component of the Affordable Care

Appearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Secretary of State John Kerry defiantly defended his diplomatic efforts, saying that while ambitious, they were better than doing nothing. While the purpose of Tuesday’s hearing was to pick through the State Department’s budget, it was Kerry’s record that came under scrutiny as his old colleagues on the committee accused him of taking on too many responsibilities with too few results. “I think you’re about to hit the trifecta,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told Kerry, naming three of the most complicated issues Kerry took on: the humanitarian crisis in Syria, the Iranian nuclear

Offering a first glimpse of the health care needs of Americans who bought coverage through federal and state marketplaces, an analysis of the first two months of claims data shows the new enrollees are more likely to use expensive specialty drugs to treat conditions like HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C than those with job-based insurance. The sample of claims data—considered a preliminary look at whether new enrollees are sicker-than-average—also found that prescriptions for treating pain, seizures, and depression are also proportionally higher in exchange plans, according to Express Scripts, one of the nation’s largest pharmacy benefit management companies.

MSNBC´s Ed Schultz cursed out a caller on his syndicated radio show, calling the man a “fricking a–hole” and telling him to “get the f— out of here.” Ouch! The foul-mouthed rant happened last week on the “Ed Schultz Radio Show.” But it didn´t make it onto anyone´s radar until conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham played the clip on her show Monday. The call in question got off to a rocky start when the man shouted at Schultz,”This is fascism!” and “Stop capitulating to the people who created the problem and you continue to make them wealthy.” Schultz, who

A New Democratic Poll Is Warning
Of Midterm Disaster For Democrats

A new poll conducted by a Democratic pollster is warning of potential impending disaster for Democrats in this year´s midterm elections because of a familiar problem — diminished turnout among voters on whom they are reliant. The Washington Post´s Greg Sargent got an early look at the poll, which was conducted by Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg of Democracy Corps for Women’s Voices Women Vote. The poll found that voters in the so-called "Rising American Electorate" — unmarried women, minorities, and younger voters — are much less likely to vote this year than in 2012. The disparity is key.

Kiev -- Russia warned Tuesday that any use of force in Ukraine´s eastern region could lead to civil war, as Kiev seeks to regain control after pro-Moscow uprisings in three cities. Pro-Russian protesters seized government buildings in the three cities of Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv on Sunday. Rebels occupying Donetsk´s regional government building Monday declared a "people´s republic" and called for a referendum on secession from Ukraine to be held by May 11. Russia´s Foreign Ministry said reports that the protesters are facing a crackdown by Ukrainian authorities are of particular concern. "We are calling for the immediate cessation of

Since the release of the new IPCC report on the current and future effects of climate change, climate hawks (including myself) have made the same very basic argument that we always do: Climate change looks bad, potentially very bad, and therefore we should curtail the greenhouse gas emissions which cause it. Clive Crook writes that this is approach is somehow responsible for public skepticism of climate change: The main reason for the disconnect between the science and the public is the gross tactical incompetence of the climate-science community, as it´s called, and its political champions.

BEIJING - The governor of China´s restive far western region of Xinjiang wrote on Monday that Islamist militants were trying to ban laughter at weddings and crying at funerals, as he appealed to people to stamp out the "tumor" of extremism. Xinjiang, resource-rich and strategically located on the borders of central Asia, has been beset by violence for years, blamed by the government on Islamist militants and separatists. Exiles and many rights groups say the real cause of the unrest is China´s heavy-handed policies, including curbs on Islam and the culture and language of the Muslim Uighur people who call

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

Malaysia, Indonesia ban Noah film

Malaysia and Indonesia have banned the biblical epic Noah, joining other Muslim nations in vetoing the Hollywood movie because of its visual depiction of the prophet. Film censors in both countries said today that the portrayal of the ark-building prophet by Russell Crowe was against Islamic laws. Depictions of any prophet are shunned in Islam to avoid worship of a person rather than God. "The film Noah is not allowed to be screened in this country to protect the sensitivity and harmony in Malaysia´s multi-racial and multi-religious community," Film Censorship Board chairman Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid said in a statement.

Demonstrators stormed a provincial administration building in eastern Ukraine on Sunday and raised the Russian flag atop it, demanding the release of riot police accused of killing protesters in Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, in February. Police were negotiating with the demonstrators, who have called for supporters to rally around the Regional Security Administration building in Donetsk, about 200 kilometers (120 miles) from the Russian border. Video of the negotiations was being streamed live online by local news outlets. The protest is the latest challenge to Ukraine´s embattled new government, which took power after a revolt that toppled pro-Russian President Viktor

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but
