I am informed that this was actually a satirical poem.
…Dammit, I still think that you could get away with this trick. Once.
Two things about this:

MOCKS: “Pizza chain Domino’s will introduce this week a pizza made on a fried chicken crust.” They could have made something like this at any time in the last six decades. They should have made something like this, oh, twenty years ago when I had a digestive system that could laugh at any puny consequences. But no. They waited until I got amiably stout, and middle-aged.
Those bastards. Pardon my language. (more…)
Point (11:43 AM, Sarah Cliff):
Getting worked up into an increasingly heated health nerd rage about the Census changes. We’re losing our best data source on Obamacare.

Counter-point (12:21 PM, …Sarah Kliff): “Don’t freak out about the changes to the Census yet“.
…I dunno. I do like Zoe Saldana.
I think that I will reserve judgement on this one until I actually see it. Although damned if I know how I will, if you’ll pardon the pun…
There are a lot of people in the health care pundit business who are screaming about this piece of news right now: “The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said.” Basically, the questions have been changed in a fashion that supposedly will make the census data collected more accurate, but will almost certainly bring in a result where the percentage of uninsured will be ‘officially’ deemed to be lower. As the New York Times (rather glumly*) had ‘officials’ put it: “it will be difficult to say how much of any change is attributable to the Affordable Care Act and how much to the use of a new survey instrument.”
Funny how that works. (more…)
Yeah I’m not buying this.
But I for one am certain that Hillary staged that shoe dodge as a false flag to distract from the failures of Obamacare

The woman’s reportedly the same one as somebody who interrupted the trial of the Aurora shooter by screaming about people spying on her with rays. Contra Hollywood, crazy people do not make for reliable sleeper agents – and this woman went beyond full New World Order paranoia and right into Full Metal Crazy-Pants territory. I’m just grateful that she didn’t have a gun.
Goes “from 12:53 a.m. EDT (0453 GMT) to about 6 a.m. EDT (1000 GMT).” Unfortunately, my part of the country is under cloud cover right now, so I’ll miss it – but if your area has clear skies I suggest that you take a gander. Eclipses are always interesting.
The video itself is of interest (short version: local Maryland supermarket won’t hire more people, thanks to Obamacare):
…but it’s this screen shot from the clip that makes me feel all warm, fuzzy, and productive:
I mention this solely because I don’t think that I’ve ever actually bought a mouse pad before. I’ve gotten them as promotions, been given them as gifts, permanently borrowed extras, and the one I have now I have no idea where it came from, but it probably actually came in the mail – but I’ve never bought one. I don’t think that’s a common experience, so that’s why I’m mentioning it here.
