Not Again...

***Our man-child President is at it again, with a swipe at Fox News. He, like his liberal brethren, is allergic to the truth. It's toxic to the Democrats, and that's why they hate Fox News. They don't have them in their back pockets as they do every other outlet.


"There's a reason fewer Republicans, you hear them running about ObamaCare --- because while good, affordable health care might seem like a fanged threat to the freedom of the American people on Fox News, it's turns out it's working pretty well in the real world." 

Did you ever hear George W. Bush attack MSNBC, repeatedly and as above, completely untruthfully? Here's a newsflash for you, Obama: ObamaCare has nothing to do with "good, affordable health care" and you know it. Unfortunately for you, most of the American people, other than your dim bulb low information base, know it too.


***Case in point: One family's ObamaCare nightmare.

As the mother of two chronically ill children, I have long faced high health care costs. My sons suffer from a rare bone-marrow failure syndrome called Shwachman-Diamond syndrome and have secondary mitochondrial disease that requires treatment with a broad range of expensive medications. We averaged $10,000 to $12,000 a year in billed out-of-pocket medical expenses before Obamacare became law. In 2013, we incurred just over $27,000 in out-of-pocket medical expenses. President Obama’s signature piece of legislation has more than doubled our yearly medical costs.

Yeah, "good, affordable health care." 

***What a bunch of idiots. Protestors demand that David Koch be removed from the Board of Directors at a studio in Boston. Why? Because of his political views. Such tolerance.

The presence of the billionaire philanthropist and promoter of libertarian and conservative causes on WGBH’s board is subverting its “mission,” according to Forecast the Facts, which has helped organize repeated protests at ’GBH aimed at Koch.
That’s a particularly hollow charge, given the millions Koch has donated to the network and specifically to the science program “Nova,” which has produced endless hours of coverage about climate change and its impact on the planet. Call that Exhibit A that Koch has little influence over the network’s editorial decision-making.
But the truth is that — the name notwithstanding — facts actually matter little to Forecast the Facts and its supporters, because this really isn’t about substance, it’s about stunt-making. And marching Big Bird down the middle of Guest Street is actually a fairly clever way to indoctrinate more worshipers to the faith.

When The Frost Is On The Punkin


When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
And the rooster's hallylooyer as he tiptoes on the fence
O, it's then's the times a feller is a-feelin' at his best
With the risin' sun to greet him from a night of peaceful rest
As he leaves the house, bareheaded, and goes out to feed the stock
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock

They's something kindo' harty-like about the atmusfere
When the heat of summer's over and the coolin' fall is here
Of course we miss the flowers, and the blossums on the trees
And the mumble of the hummin'-birds and buzzin' of the bees
But the air's so appetizin'; and the landscape through the haze
Of a crisp and sunny morning of the airly autumn days
Is a pictur' that no painter has the colorin' to mock
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock.

The husky, rusty russel of the tossels of the corn,
And the raspin' of the tangled leaves, as golden as the morn;
The stubble in the furries kindo' lonesome-like, but still
A-preachin' sermuns to us of the barns they growed to fill;
The strawstack in the medder, and the reaper in the shed;
The hosses in theyr stalls below the clover over-head!
O, it sets my hart a-clickin' like the tickin' of a clock,
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock!

Then your apples all is gethered, and the ones a feller keeps
Is poured around the celler-floor in red and yeller heaps;
And your cider-makin' 's over, and your wimmern-folks is through
With their mince and apple butter, and theyr souse and saussage, too!
I don't know how to tell it but ef sich a thing could be
As the Angels wantin' boardin', and they'd call around on me
I'd want to 'commodate 'em all the whole-indurin' flock
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock!




***I like long walks, especially when they're taken by people who annoy me. ~Fred Allen

***Have a great day!
