Unlike ObamaCare, NerdCare is Voluntary

Anonymiss of Nuking Politics sent me this because she actually knows this guy holding the sign. It’s a friend or a relative or her bookie or something. I’m not sure, I just skimmed the email.

Anyway, this guy made it on to ESPN while they panned the crowd during “College Gameday”:

And the nerds who use Bitcoin (which is either a secure digital currency, or cyberpunk tulip bulbs) are so excited to be on TV that complete strangers are scanning his QR code and sending him money (some NSFW comments at link).

Which is just crazy.

Because if *I* were a friend/relative/bookie of Anonymiss, I’d hold up a different sign:

A least cats would ruin my life because they honestly cared about me and were just doing the best they could with their limited intellectual capacity:

Jay Carney said the HealthCare.Gov website will never be “perfect.”

Jay, we’re not asking for “perfect”, but “more functional than a square bicycle tire” would be nice.

Some Folks Just Stink at Cover-Ups

A source in the Census Bureau claims the unemployment figures were manipulated right before the 2012 elections.

How’d they find out? Did Candy Crowley accidentally hand over the wrong transcript?

Obama Warned Us: Health Care

Friday, November 29, 2013 2:00 pm

Opponents of health reform warn that this is all some big plot for socialized medicine or government-run health care with long lines and rationed care. That’s not true either.

BARACK OBAMA, weekly address, Jul. 18, 2009

“You’ll get long lines, higher prices, and rationed care.”

Where’s Frank?

Friday, November 29, 2013 10:00 am

Some of you noticed that Frank J. hasn’t been around this week. That prompted some to wonder, “Where’s Frank?”

So, just where is Frank?

Well, actually, I don’t know. Turns out he doesn’t report to me. I checked the IMAO org chart. Here’s a copy:

endorse_comic2

See?

But, it may give us an idea of where Frank J. has been. Here are ideas:

  • Fixing the Obamacare Website. Not so that it’ll work, but that it’ll finally accept payments. To Frank J’s PayPal account.
  • Standing in line at Best Buy.
  • Standing in line at the Apple Store. For a frikkin’ gift card.
  • Standing in line at Walmart.
  • At home. He just forgot to set his alarm.
  • Standing in line at StubHub for tickets to Boise State’s bowl game. And, no, he doesn’t really understand StubHub.
  • At home, searching his files, trying to remember why he ever let me have keys to this place.

What about you? Where do you think Frank J. is? What’s he been up to?

What Could Go Wrong?

Thursday, November 28, 2013 8:00 pm

A new security deal between the US and Afghanistan would maintain US military outposts in Afghanistan indefinitely.

Wonder how confident they feel about being told “if you like your American troops, you can keep them”?
