INTERESTING: I got pulled over?

Interesting morning. 

I was driving the Caddie and pulled out of 7-11 when there was big gap in the traffic. Someone jumped into my gap and I was forced to stay on the shoulder for three or four cars. Finally a cop let me in. I waved thanks and toodled along. 

Two lights later, he lit me up and pulled me over. Argh!

So I sat quietly until he walked up to the car. On his way to the driver’s side window, he touched the driver’s side rear light. That struck me as strange.

“Registration and insurance card”. I responded: “It’s in the glove box.” “Ok, you can get it now and thanks for telling me.” I got them out and the contents of the box rolled out. I took them out of the evelope and passed them to him. 

“License.” “In my wallet”. “OK”. So extracted the wallet and pulled it out and handed it to him.

He said: “I pulled you over because your license came back as suspended. Did you turn your NJ license when you got a NH one?” “yes. The car is based in NJ so it’s registered and insursed here.” “OK.”

He went back to the police car. And spent a few minutes. On the way back, he touched the taillight again. Struck me as strange.

“Do you still have the address in Kendall Park?” “Yes.” “OK. No problem.”

And I went on my way.

I’m still wondering why he touched the car?

HEALTHCARE: Did Obamacare Really Save Lives? NO!

Did Obamacare Really Save Lives?

Conclusion

Although I personally do not yet have a theory on the specific mechanism that may be responsible, I am confident in saying that the actual data do not support the breathless claims that rolling back ObamaCare will literally kill many thousands of Americans. Fans of the Austrian school should not be shocked, though, to discover that having the federal government get more heavily involved in the health sector has apparently made things worse.

*** end quote ***

I put this in the class of “District of Corruption speak” — like Brave New World’s Newspeak. You know where: “draconian cuts” don’t reduce the baseline spending, “The Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick”, and “Does that mean that someone’s 13-year old daughter could walk into a sex clinic, have a pregnancy test done, be taken away to the local Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, have their abortion, be back, and go home on the school bus that night? Mom and dad are never the wiser.”

So overtime any of the politicians and bureaucrats — or their flunkies in the media — make ANY claim, I dismiss it out of hand. If they were to claim “the sun will come up tomorrow”, I’d wait and confirm it.

That goes for their predictions on everything.

When listening to “pitches”, ask who’s getting paid off and what’s the pitcher’s track record.

Why believe any to them?

Argh!
