Barack Obama says Jonathan Gruber (right) was just "some adviser" who worked on ObamaCare. That low-level "advisor" made some six million dollars advising Mr. Obama and other Democrats on ObamaCare. But of course, we know Obama lies all the time. What's interesting is that Gruber told the truth -- many times! But when he testified under oath before Congress . . . not so much. (Reference.). Any resemblance between Jonathan Gruber and a decent, honest, honorable man is purely coincidental.

Remember 9/11

America: Land of the free because of the brave.

Results from the 2012 presidential election have convinced me that a majority of American voters has decided, knowingly or otherwise, to let our beautiful country slip silently into socialism. This grieves me more than I can express. To see the government centralize power at the expense of individual freedom, to see it attack the wealthy and successful, to see it disrespect the U.S. Constitution, to see it fundamentally transform America before my very eyes make my heart break.

Person with Quote of the Week Quote of the Week

"This bill [Obamacare] was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO [the Congressional Budget Office] did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it's written to do that. In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in -- you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed. . . Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass. . . Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I'd rather have this law than not."

The Psychiatrist and the Proctologist

Best friends graduating from medical school at the same time decided that in spite of two different specialties, they would open a practice together to share office space and personnel.

Dr. Smith was the psychiatrist and Dr. Jones was the proctologist. They put up a sign reading: Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones: Hysterias and Posteriors.

The town council was livid and insisted they change it. The docs changed it to read: Schizoids and Hemorrhoids.

This was also not acceptable so they again changed the sign to read Catatonics and High Colonics -- no go.

Next they tried Manic Depressives and Anal Retentives -- thumbs down again.

Then came Minds and Behinds -- still no good.

Another attempt resulted in Lost Souls and Butt Holes -- unacceptable again!

So they tried Nuts and Butts -- no way.

Freaks and Cheeks -- still no good.

Loons and Moons -- forget it.

Almost at their wit's end, the docs finally came up with: Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones -- Specializing in Odds and Ends.
