Also, heh: "QIp vIghro' pum" is Klingon.
(fetches Okrand from the shelf...)
Hah...I get it now. I knew it! Thirteen years ago, when I bought the damned book, I knew it would come handy one day! Thank you so much.
(looks up 'Klingon translator' on google, finds oddly enough that Bing translator is the first hit)
"QIp vIghro' pum" translates to "stupid cat falls" without a 'investment' and braving more than a decade of dust.
Phrenology is a great way to find such people.
I agree! Anyone who believes in such junk science should be immediately removed from society.
the insurance will not be affordable and additionally many of the plans will actually end up being inferior to what many had before.
So says the 'chicken little' AC. Next year we'll find out if everything the GOP has been claiming for the last 5 years is really true. I believe that they will be proven wrong while millions of Americans who had pre-existing conditions will be able to find coverage at normal cost and many thousands will not lose coverage in the middle of an illness. While many millions more American will find better coverage, many at significant savings than they would have paid previously.
Meanwhile, the medicare cuts made by the ACA (aka Obamacare) which the GOP claimed would kill, have contributed to a 5% savings in Medicare costs which has reduced the budget deficit even more than expected. Every year the Republicans have been claiming that we are at the doorstep of disaster, and seemingly despite their best efforts, it has not happened. The question is when the stop being pessimistic and start claiming 'victory', how do they claim Obamacare was their idea?
Most bad government has grown out of too much government. - Thomas Jefferson
Whenever I see a quote like that attributed to Thomas Jefferson, I always [use a popular internet search tool] to find more often than not that it's simple right wing fantasy. Why am I not surprised, that it's fake?.
Here are some more things to chew on:
- All of our founding fathers spent their entire lives as politicians both during the colonial era and after the revolution. The idea that they were somehow 'afraid of government' is ludicrous.
- The idea that revolution was 'a bunch of farmers with their personal guns' is ridiculous, it was funded by state governments (Continental Congress) and supported by the French crown.
- Thomas Jefferson didn't write the Constitution, nor the bill of rights, as he was minister to France that entire time, he wasn't even on the committees. Was he really even a 'Framer'? Also, for all his views, when given the chance as a President he governed with an expansive view of both executive and federal power.
