Not that it matters a whit: Obama personally apologizes for Americans losing health coverage

#1  Usually an apology is followed with some sort of action to rectify the situation. But instead we get an apology and a 'no worries you all will love this big government program once we work out the kinks'

#2  “Obviously we didn’t do a good enough job in terms of how we crafted the law," Obama said in the interview Thursday. "And, you know, that’s something I regret. That’s something we’re gonna do everything we can to get fixed ... We’re looking at a range of options.”

How about repealing it?

#4  The photo of Schumer (D) evokes the image of the Joker in Batman. Are you certain New York didn't elect the Joker as their U.S. Senator?

Schumer wants the DOJ to fund these devices? Why is that the government's job? How about freezing new legislation for a several years? How about rolling back existing legislation and regulations for several years? The current debt/citizen is $54,037. Isn't that fiscal enslavement of the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren? Isn't that cruelty and child abuse by the government foisted on the children? Maybe our Congresscritters should have to wear GPS devices so we know where these serial child abusers are at any give time.

Feds Come After Trans Fat
[BREITBART] Heart-clogging trans fats were once a staple of the American diet, plentiful in baked goods, microwave popcorn and fried foods. Now, mindful of the health risks, the Food and Drug Administration is getting rid of what's left of them for good.
Like the health risks of salt. Oh wait -- after a generation of screaming about salt ingestion, they finally admitted the excess washes out like all water soluble substances. Or that food pyramid we all studied in health class, the one that had a small amount of meat at the top and a large layer of grains... only that has led to the current obesity and metabolic syndrome health crisis. The FDA really needs to concentrate on certifying that prescription meds work -- our prescription costs would fall significantly if they just did the job they're supposed to do.
Condemning artificial trans fats as a threat to public health, the FDA announced Thursday it will require the food industry to phase them out.

Manufacturers already have eliminated many trans fats, responding to criticism from the medical community and to local laws, Even so, the FDA said getting rid of the rest _ the average American still eats around a gram of trans fat a day _ could prevent 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths each year.

It won't happen right away. The agency will collect comments for two months before determining a phase-out timetable. Different foods may have different schedules, depending how easy it is to find substitutes.

"We want to do it in a way that doesn't unduly disrupt markets," said Michael Taylor, FDA's deputy commissioner for foods. Still, he says, the food "industry has demonstrated that it is, by and large, feasible to do."

Indeed, so much already has changed that most people won't notice much difference, if any, in food they get at groceries or restaurants.

Scientists say there are no health benefits to trans fats. And they can raise levels of "bad" cholesterol, increasing the risk of heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. Trans fats are widely considered the worst kind for your heart, even worse than saturated fats, which also can contribute to heart disease.

#1  could prevent 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths each year.

I bet not forcing the cancellation of millions of health insurance policies would have had the same salutary effects. Or better.

Odd, isn't it, this idea that if the government did LESS, things might be better.
Posted by: RandomJD || 11/08/2013 6:39 Comments || Top||

#2  In other words the FDA is declaring Transfat a pollutant...

Much like the EPA declaring CO2 (which is required for all live since plants need it) a pollutant...

I would call the FDA and EPA pollutants - but that would be an insult to pollutants. Toxins might be more appropriate.

#3  Will natural trans fats also be banned - dairy asnd meat fats for instance?
Posted by: Glenmore || 11/08/2013 9:06 Comments || Top||

#4  The FDA really needs to concentrate on certifying that prescription meds work -- our prescription costs would fall significantly if they just did the job they're supposed to do.
Uh, no, it doesn't always work out that way. Colchicine has been used since 1500 BC. FDA recently required it be "certified" that it works. The end result of this was not "safety" for consumers but "profit" for the sole rentier-company which the FDA granted the exclusive right to sell the drug at a HUGE price increase.
Colchicine has been used to treat gout and other inflammatory conditions for thousands of years. How could one company gain a monopoly?

There are about 1,000 medications on the market that predate the existence of the Food and Drug Administration and therefore were never approved. FDA official Deborah Autor spoke to CBS News as head of the office of unapproved drugs. "Well, for me, unapproved drugs present current risks," Autor said. "We don't know what's in them. We don't know if they're going to work properly. We don't know how they're made and that's a real concern."

Hundreds of thousands of people take Colchicine each year. The FDA said over the past 40 years, 169 deaths have been linked to the medication. A company called URL Pharma decided it would take the ancient drug, sold for 10 cents a pill, and test it as part of an FDA program to either approve these drugs or get them off the market.

#6  FDA is called the "Food" and "Drug" Administration for a reason. I think banning artificial trans fats in foods is something entirely within the purview of its authority. Natural trans fats are an entirely different "beast", and I anxiously await documentation of the harms the natural forms produce in the population at large. Meanwhile bakeries can face the oh-the-horror of producing pastries & cakes without artificial trans fats.

#7  OTOH, I don't believe the EPA has any legitimate authority to control CO2 emissions, and that this was not within the intent of the legislation authorizing the EPA.
The current Congressional dysfunction however means that gay rights legislation is considered of ultimate importance to that gang of fools, while writing a national budget or reining in executive branch over-reach is off the table, and cannot even be discussed in polite / politically correct company.

I was one of those, for a little while - a gout flare-up. The doc warned me about this change, and surenuff, my insurance company paid about $4.50 for each tiny little purple pill. I feel so much safer knowing the Feds think it's OK.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in video murder rant
[BBC.CO.UK] Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has apologised for a video of him making threats to commit "first-degree murder" against an unknown person.

The leader of Canada's biggest city told reporters he had been "extremely inebriated" in the clip, which shows him apparently blowing off steam.

It is the latest video controversy to engulf the mayor, who admitted this week having smoked crack cocaine.

Councillors are stepping up their calls for Mr Ford, 44, to resign.

The latest footage looks as though it was secretly filmed on a mobile phone.

An agitated Mr Ford paces a room gesticulating during a foul-mouthed rant.

'Extremely embarrassing'
The context of the clip is not clear, nor is the target of Mr Ford's wrath.

He vows to rip out the person's throat, poke out his eyes and ensure his victim is dead.
He vows to rip out the person's throat, poke out his eyes and ensure his victim is dead.

The mayor appears upset at someone who has called him and his brothers "liars, thieves".

"No hold barred, brother," Mr Ford says in a raised voice. "He dies or I die."

An off-camera voice eggs on Mr Ford, saying: "Mike Tyson!"

After viewing the clip outside his office on Thursday, Mr Ford told reporters: "It's extremely embarrassing and I don't know what to say."

"I hope none of you have ever or will ever be in that state," the mayor told members of the media.

"The whole world is going to see it," he said of the clip.

Drink problem
Allegations of drug use by Mr Ford surfaced in May when journalists reported seeing footage of him smoking crack cocaine.

After months of ducking the question, Mr Ford acknowledged on Tuesday for the first time that he had taken the drug "probably a year ago" while in a "drunken stupor".

He said he was "embarrassed" by his behaviour, but vowed to run for re-election.

The mayor has not been charged, but city police chief Bill Blair has said authorities are in possession of a video that apparently shows Mr Ford smoking crack.

On Sunday, Mr Ford admitted on his radio show that he had a drinking problem.

He acknowledged having been "hammered" at a street festival in August and "out of control" drunk at city hall during St Patrick's Day celebrations last year.

Mr Ford's allies on the city council say they have lost confidence in him.

But officials in North America's fourth largest city cannot legally remove the mayor unless he is convicted of a crime.

Obama Nominates Soap Opera Producer to be Ambassador to Hungary
[VARIETY] Colleen Bradley Bell, producer for soap opera production company Bell-Phillip Television Prods., has been nominated as ambassador to Hungary, becoming the latest of President Obama's campaign supporters to be tapped for foreign posts.

Bell's nomination must be approved by the Senate. She raised more than $500,000 for the Obama campaign, according to its disclosure of campaign bundlers. According to the New York Times, the actual figure was more than $2.1 million by the fall of 2012.

She and her husband, Bradley Bell, executive producer and head writer for "The Bold and the Beautiful," hosted Obama at a fund-raising event at their Holmby Hills home in February 2012.

Colleen Bell has served as a general trustee for the board of trustees at the Kennedy Center and was chair of an advisory committee on the arts for the org. She currently serves as the vice chair of the Children's Institute and a trustee on the boards of directors of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Los Angeles Music Center.

#5  Washington, like most blue states are, by area, mostly red. Unfortunately the big cities and counties like Seattle and King and Pierce counties are overwhelmingly democrat. They also have rather loose voting requirements. Its where Felons, Illegals, the dead (recent or not) and imaginary friends are welcome to vote (democrat of course).
Washington also generally has mandatory vote-by-mail.
And lets not forget that Washington is not a Right-to-work state. Union membership (and payment of dues to the democratic party) is mandatory for a lot of professions.

Watch them get released on their own recognizance with little more than a slap on the wrist.

#1  ....from Benghazi to Grace Bros. Goldman Sachs.

"Are you being served?"

Are You Being Served? is a British Sitcom that ran from 1972-1985. The show revolved around "Grace Brothers Department Store" and in particular the goings on within the "Gentlemen's Ready-To-Wear" and "Ladies' Separates and Underwear" Departments. A store reorganization forced these two departments to share floor space, and the conflicts that this created set the tone for most episodes. Are You Being Served? showcases a bygone period of time in which the class structure was still very much alive. There was a strict heirarchy within Grace Brothers. Everyone knew their "places" and remained in them, unless, of course, there was a chance for advancement and then it was every man and woman for themselves. A spin-off series of Are You Being Served? was released, called Grace and Favour. Although in the U.S, it was named Are You Being Served? Again!
