For those with tl;dr disease, a quick review of why the FIRST POSTer's comment (well done sir) is worth every mod point.
Reading summary: this seems pretty stupid and a little fear-mongery for slashdot.
Click link: Fox news, figures. Usual shit reporting and lack of detail. Obamacare not mentioned anywhere in article.
Click link in article to watchdog.org: not much more detail, more zomg fear crap, still no mention of obamacare.
Read comments on watchdog.org: ok, I’m out
The last part about the comment section of watchdog.org (trust me dont go there) consists mainly
of a turgid stream of inane comments from a single commenter (Obummer) such as:
ALERT! ALERT!! The Worst Rated Solar Flare in 2006 LASTED FOR 10 MINUTES!!
EXPERTS ESTIMATE!! Pay 2 Billion or 2 Million Will Die!!!!
But through this shite storm shines one gem
I had a friend whose sister's husband's ex-wife's step-daughter's 1st husband made $87,000 last month selling EMP protective clothing made from recycled tin foil. You can too. Check it out at www.empinsuranceforchumps.com
