    The Nobel Committee has awarded a special Nobel for Bravery to President Obama today for his role in the safe rescue of Balloon Boy. In part, the citation states Obama’s inspirational “YES WE CAN” motto kept the hopes of Balloon Boy’s parents high as they searched their house for their son, finally finding him in the attic. Without President Obama’s glorious leadership, the boy would surely have died today.

    There is too much hate in our body politic nowadays. It is not healthy for our democracy. Because I like to lead by example, I am going to stop troll-bashing and start treating trolls with deference and respect. I am turning the page on partisan rants. I will show nothing but love for our trolls from now on. Besides, isn’t it true that we will ultimately be judged by how we have treated the least of those among us?

    Gotta love it. Really really love it…

    Well what are you really saying Harry? Puddy covered some of this before which ylb arschloch can vouch for but he won’t being an arschloch:

    The results of Kessler and McClellan’s study have been applied to current health care expenditure to approximate the cost of defensive medicine across the nation. These statistics applied to the nation’s $1.4 trillion annual health care expenditure in 2005 (estimated to be over $2 trillion this fiscal year by President Obama), show that health care costs could have been reduced by $124 billion overall and government expenses by $50 billion per year. Adding the cost of defending malpractice cases, paying compensation, and covering additional administrative costs (a total of $29.4 billion), the average American family thus pays an additional $2,000 per year in health care just to cover the costs of defensive medicine. With the national health care costs expected to be over $4.5 trillion by 2017, the cost of defensive medicine to the average American could triple in the next 10 years.”

    54 Billion a year for 10 years is $540 Billion Harry Reid… for tort reform…

    Why did you forget the other 129+50+29.4=208.4 Billion a year savings

    So remove the 29.4 and insert 54 Billion = 233 Billion per year Harry.

    So now over 10 years we save 2.33 Trillion Harry. Why did you skip this Harry?

    My dear friend, Puddy,
    The tort reformers won the battle simply by coining the term, “defensive medicine.” Our medical provider friends can jump on their horses and proclaim that the only reason a certain procedure is performed is to keep the wicked trial lawyers outside the castle. The reality, of course, is that the providers nonetheless charge for, and profit from, the “defensive” procedure. Would you not concede, at a minimum, that mixed motives might underlie what is referred to as defensive medicine?

    Most studies, and surely the most reliable ones, indicate that malpractice case filings are down and that malpractice costs to the healthcare system barely count. Please read some studies that do not support your position, my friend.

    From today’s Jayson Blair times:

    * The Michele Bachmann action figure is on page A20. Fact checkers, maybe the same checkers who checked SNL’s Obama skit, find “falsehoods” in Bachmann’s remarks about ACORN census jobs, jobs the Census Bureau said would no longer be delegated to ACORN. Also note that Bachmann is one of those Republican child haters who, according to Jolly Roger Rabbit, cares about children only before they’re born. Bachmann “has opened her home to 23 foster children.”
    * The Arts Section says that Tina Fey can’t act when she’s pretending to be Tina Fey.
    * Page B2 has a warning about the Obama Bubble. Page B2 calls it a Dow Bubble.
    * Kristof’s column is about thug union Democrat public schools that abuse our children. “It’s difficult to improve failing schools when you can’t create alternatives such as charter schools and can’t remove inept or abusive teachers.” That truth is so inconvenient that Kristof won’t be allowed to buy a piece of the St. Louis Rams.

    So you’re advocating a single payer system? There’s no need for malpractice insurance. The emphasis is on preventative, vs defensive, medicine.

    I’m so glad that we’ve finally found common ground on this one issue.

    Keep thinking things through like this and pretty soon you’ll be talking like a progressive.

    Puddy, my buddy,
    Physicians organizations, in fact, are not credible when it comes to issues of tort reform. They have an ax to grind. Would you consider a trial lawyer organization credible on the issue? Of course, you would not.

    With regard to the doctor you identify, I could care less what his skin color is. That’s what differentiates me from people like Rush Limbaugh, who are incapable of disregarding skin color. Tell me, Puddy, do you think that Donovan McNabb was overrated because the media needed to make a star of a black quarterback, like Rushbo claimed? Frankly, I remember him as a helluva quarterback who led the Eagles to the Super Bowl. [I hope I’m not being disrespectful here, given that I’ve turned a page and all.]

    Now for facts –

    Since you have poor memory… Eagles fans booed his selection in 1999.

    60.4% 18th-best in the 2008.
    58.9% for his 10 year career.

    ESPN has him MIA for 2009…

    NFL Fantasy has him #10

    Puddy thinks Randall Cunningham was a better quarterback. And he played on a worse Eagles team. In 1990 he almost ran for 1000 yards. He was the one who set the stage for the better black quarterbacks of today Daunte Culpepper, Byron Leftwich, Donovan McNabb, the late Steve McNair, and Michael Vick. When Randall retired in 2002 he was still good. He retired as the all-time leader for quarterback rushing yards. Led the Vikings to a 15-1 record. He had a 106 passer rating in 1998.

    First, you say this in response to my query about Donovan McNabb being overrated:

    “PUDDY VERY GLAD YOU ASKED… Ever come to a Drinking Liberally? Let me know and I will call in front of you my older brother who as a big time liberalhe’ll say “This is the one time I agree with Rush Limbaugh”.
    Yes both of us think Donovan is overrated.”

    Then, in the same post, you say this:

    “Puddy thinks Randall Cunningham was a better quarterback. And he played on a worse Eagles team. In 1990 he almost ran for 1000 yards. He was the one who set the stage for the better black quarterbacks of today Daunte Culpepper, Byron Leftwich, Donovan McNabb . . .”

    I’m confused, Puddy. Why did your friend, Rush, think the media needed to make a star of a black quarterback named Donovan McNabb, when even you believe there had been better before (I might agree with you about Randall Cunningham). Any chance you remember Joe Gilliam with the Steelers? I don’t think he got the chance he should have had.

    Puddy, here’s a deal. I have never been to Drinking Liberally. I have wanted to attend, but as you know, I do not live on that side of the water. Give me a little notice if you’re going to be there, and I’ll attend. I kind of meant what I said above about democracy not doing very well when we are as divided as we are. I do believe the majority party needs a noble opposition, and I don’t believe your party is providing anything by way of a noble opposition at the moment. (Check out Everett Dirksen if you’re not sure what I mean.)

    Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

    Proud Leftist,

    When Puddy went to college one of my buds was a dark-skinned black bro. He was adopted by a white family. I met them all as we were tight. He had a German name and no one knew why. Later he told us the problems he had growing up as a black child of a white family. Made you really mad. Oh BTW, he was 6′ and 205 of all muscle. He beat some ass growing up.

    When Puddy went to college one of the girls everyone lusted over was half Japanese and half black. Wavy black hair tall and those eyes. She spoke perfect Japanese yet she was gaijin and black. They wouldn’t talk to her. She hated it.

    When Puddy went to college there was a black man with mixed race parents. One of the upperclass black men happened to see his parents and the members of the black dorm on north campus called him half-breed.

    The same thing happened to a light skinned black woman who happened to have a white father. That really set the black women against her For what? Cuz her mother married a black man.

    So yes Proud Leftist Puddy has seen it BIG TIME>

    Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

    Wow Proud Leftist,

    Interesting Post. Do you remember how many times Puddy has referred to Everett Dirksen on this blog? Numerous times. Ask ylb arschloch. He can give you the number direct from his tctmgr. Butt since we both have seen ylb arschloch in action we both know he only uses it for stupid attacks.

    Now Joe Gilliam… He lost his starting role to Terry Bradshaw. They gave him a chance but he wasn’t very accurate.

    I’m confused, Puddy. Why did your friend, Rush, think the media needed to make a star of a black quarterback named Donovan McNabb, when even you believe there had been better before (I might agree with you about Randall Cunningham).

    Why you confused Proud? Not from da hood? Cunningham was a better person, a team leader, a talented quarterback who survived when the social mores were still blacks were still thought of as running backs, defensive backs or receivers. So along comes McNabb, booed by the Philly faithful, and he comes out with this machismo. Good for him. But he had to deliver. Read some old Philly paper comments from the early 2000 years.

    BTW my older brother thinks Mark Sanchez of the NY Jets is too cocky too!

    The MSM only interview those who they feel will give them the answer they are looking for. That’s why Rick Sanchez of CNN had his ASS handed to him earlier this week by Mercury Morris when Morris agreed with Limbaugh the NFL is like the crips and the bloods. Watch Sanchez face when Morris agreed with the comment.

    Why do you think Sharpton and Jackson get all that face time. Neither are too bright. Neither are too articulate. Neither can see anything except race issues. At least Sharpton wasn’t as fast to draw conclusions on the 3 Duke whitey boyz as Jackson was. And knowing about Jackson’s shakedown tactics, he hates corporate America until he gets his piece through a shakedown makes him more distasteful!!!!!

    PRICELESS.

    Was any of what you saw right? Was it good? Do you condone how those mixed race people were treated? People can’t much help with whom they fall in love. I think the generation that is now becoming adult is doing better than our generation did about such things.

    Want to know something? On my maternal side, my grandfather emigrated from Norway and my grandmother from Sweden. They married in Ballard, to the chagrin of both sides. That was considered a mixed race marriage because Sweden had occupied Norway until 1905. They could communicate with each other in their native tongues, and they didn’t look much different. Nonetheless, some relatives would not even attend the wedding (in the 30s). Some, would never talk to one or the other again. Tell me, should we try to get over such differences, or just believe they are eternal?

    Heating Oil Inventories And Prices Higher

    Wait a minute! Under the laws of supply and demand, isn’t higher inventories supposed to result in lower prices?

    Yeah, that’s how it’s supposed to work, but that’s not how it works in the unregulated, laissez-faire, completely free markets advocated by our wingnut friends.

    What actually happens is crooks, scammers, con artists, and greedheads move in and manipulate supplies, drive prices up, and skim money off the top — making everything more expensive for you the consumer.

    In other words, a “free market” is a license for thieves to steal from you.

    We all know the 2008 Oil Price Gouge wasn’t caused by supply shortfalls. There weren’t any supply shortfalls. It was caused by speculators.

    Well, the same thing is happening again. Daily Finance reports:

    “There’s plenty of heating oil to go around — indeed, inventories are at their highest level in nearly three decades — and yet prices are going up. …

    “Supplies of heating oil stand about 33 percent above their five-year average, we learned from the Energy Department on Thursday, something that would ordinarily be considered a glut.

    “Gluts are bad for producers but great for consumers, thanks to the good old law of supply and demand … the price of heating oil, if anything, should … be coming down. And yet it’s getting more expensive. …

    “So what gives? Here’s what: Energy traders ….”

    U.S. Economy Could Lose 25% Of Jobs To Offshoring

    In other news, economist Alan Blinder says 25% of U.S. jobs — 30 to 40 million jobs — could move abroad. Meaning, if incentives to offshore stay in place, they will go abroad. No company can afford the competitive disadvantage of voluntarily paying higher U.S. wages.

    “Many analysts were quick to point out that ‘could’ is miles away from ‘will,’ and have noted that Blinder’s depressing conclusion doesn’t automatically translate into a massive outflux of jobs. While this is certainly true, it ignores the devastating effect that offshoring has already had and minimizes the attraction that the program holds for business owners. Under the circumstances, the fact that 25 percent of jobs can go overseas suggests that — if current trends continue — a large percentage will eventually do so.”

    http://www.dailyfinance.com/20.....nsumes-jo/

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: Corporatism has completely taken over the running of America; and under corporatism, America no longer exists for the benefit of all Americans, but only for wealthy investors.

    If you think unemployment is ugly now, wait until another 25% of the workforce is added to the unemployment rolls, bringing total unemployment above 35%. Even the Great Depression wasn’t that bad.

    Frankly, some of the Republican policies instituted since Reagan’s time make no sense, such as giving American companies tax breaks to send jobs overseas, and allowing American billionaires to avoid U.S. taxes by taking up residence in tax havens like the Cayman Islands while running companies in the U.S. and taking money out of the U.S. and stashing it in Caribbean and Swiss banks.

    Naturally, one wonders who the hell these American businesses who are shucking good-paying jobs right and left will sell their products after American workers become so destitute they won’t be able to buy pencil erasers. No worries; there’ll be plenty of newly-affluent Indians and Chinese to sell to!

    Disease Stages Comeback

    Bacterial illnesses are killing hundreds of thousands of people because drug companies don’t have financial incentives to develop antibiotics, according to a report from the American Academy of Microbiology.

    http://www.dailyfinance.com/20.....second-wo/

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: Yet another fucking market failure! There are no technology hurdles to overcome; we don’t have these medicines simply because there’s not enough profit in them.

    Here’s how the private drug industry works. They don’t invent anything. All the basic research is done by universities and government labs at taxpayer expense. Private for-greed drug companies get this research essentially for free and use it to formulate proprietary drug products which they sell to the taxpayers who paid for the research at huge markups.

    The government is complicit in this scam. They give the drug companies patent protection for X number of years. During the patent period, the companies reap enormous profits by selling drugs at huge markups. None of that money directly benefits patients.

    As you know, after a drug goes off patent, generics become available and the bottom drops out of the pricing. Drugs that sold for $5 a pill can then be bought for 5 cents a pill.

    Anyone who tells you those profits support research is either ignorant or lying. Private for-greed drug companies typically spend about 5% or 6% of their revenue on R & D, and most of their “research” merely consists of trying to reformulate drugs they already have into new combinations of drugs solely for the purpose of extending their patents and therefore their profit generating ability.

    The lion’s share of what you pay for patent-protected proprietary drugs — between half and two-thirds — is spent on marketing. That’s right, most of what you pay for brand-name drugs is spent trying to persuade you to ask your doctor to prescribe them for you.

    In the real world, most of us can’t afford pricey branded drugs, and must wait years for patents to expire to get access to treatment, hoping the infection doesn’t kill us before a generic becomes available.

    That’s a fucked-up way of doing things, if you ask me.

    @96 This shows just how stupid you truly are, puddy. When they talk about heating oil “inventories,” they’re referring to heating oil already already in the United States, dumbshit! As in already bought and paid for, but sitting unsold in storage tanks. Currency devaluation may affect wellhead prices abroad, but has nothing to do with domestic prices for refined products in storage and awaiting buyers, which is supposed to be a function of supply and demand. Supply up = price down, this is what you guys say you believe in, right? So why isn’t it working? You come up with some bullshit about “inflation” (which is a whole ‘nother subject, see below) but that has nothing to do with the failure of the market to respond to oversupply with falling prices. I repeat, why isn’t the supply-demand curve working? The only possible answer is “price manipulation.”

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    As for “inflation,” here’s the scoop. The government has infused cash into the economy in a lesser amount than the private cash taken out of circulation and parked in Treasuries, so the gummint’s cash infusion can’t possibly be causing monetary inflation because the money supply is smaller than it was when all this shit started.

  83. 105

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    But trying to explain that to an idiot who can’t even read a historical deficits chart is hopeless and a waste of time.

  84. 106

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    When all that cash parked in Treasuries and earning zero interest — about $3 trillion — comes out of hiding and goes back to work, it’ll have to go somewhere, and a lot of it will go into stocks. More money chasing the same stocks = higher stock prices. But that won’t happen right away because people are still scared. First, there’ll be a selloff of the currently overbought stock market, and of course I’ll take my profits before that happens, then after the market overreacts in the other direction and the market becomes oversold, I’ll buy them back and when all that money comes out of Treasuries I’ll sell them again for double or triple what I paid for them! This sure beats working.

    Of course, my stock flipping activities don’t contribute a fucking thing to GDP or the economy, and don’t create a single job. This is why Congress rewards me with generous tax breaks and society adores me and fawns over my prowess. If you want to be mistreated, disrespected, and taxed to death, then get a job and find out what society’s attitude is toward people who work and produce! I did, and I’ll never do it again. I much prefer to play the zero-sum game of taking money from other people and giving it to myself. This is what our society respects, honors, and rewards! Working is for saps and suckers. I don’t work or produce; I’m a capitalist!
