RANT: Obamacare should be rolled back

“Stupid.”

That’s what the architect of ObamaCare called you, the American voter.

He said they wrote the law specifically to confuse voters, to conceal what the law was about.

But now ObamaCare is going to face a day of reckoning.

Argh! “health”, “health care”, “health care insurance”, or something else

But, I think we should thank these bozos for getting “health insurance” disconnected from “employment”.

Like “car insurance”, it should have ZERO connection to your employer.

</EXTREME RANT>

All due to the wage and price controls of WW2.

Aggravated by the Crony Capitalist tax code that allows business to deduct “health insurance expense” but employees can not!

<EXTREME RANT/>

I hope that the R’s will correct this aspect.

If I was an R, I’d be passing bills like a machine gun. Then BHO44 can veto or sign. “We, The Sheeple” can make judgments from there.

MEME: Guilt blocks your smarts

How to Be Less Stupid
Posted by James Altucher

*** begin quote ***

I’m really stupid. I can tell you in advance. I think at heart, if I work at it, I can be smart. But at the moment I’m largely an idiot. I feel I have the right knowledge but I let a lot of stuff get in the way. You know: “stuff”. Worries, guilt, paranoia, grudges, resentment. Like, for instance: I resent the people who resent me. I think they resent me for no reason. So now I resent them. What a circle-jerk!

I used to think when I added stuff to my brain I’d get smarter. But this is not true. For instance, if I look up when Charlemagne was born I’d just add a fact to my head which I will forget tomorrow. This won’t make me smarter. Subtraction, and not Addition, is what makes the window to the brain more clear, wipes away the smudges, opens the drapes.

*** and ***

6)      Guilt. A good friend of mine wrote me recently. I should say, wrote me six weeks ago. Every day when I wake up I tell myself: don’t return emails until you read, then write. But then sometimes I have other things to do. Meetings. Or BS stuff. Or eating. I say, “ok, I will return that email later.” And then when later comes I feel bad that I haven’t returned his email earlier. Then at 3am I turn over and say to Claudia, “I didn’t return that email”. She says “Urgh…ushghsh…emmmm” which was not the answer I was looking for. Then I don’t sleep as much. Then I feel guilty. That takes away about 10% of my intelligence right there.

Ahh, yes, I feel guilt.

Everyone says I have nothing to be guilty about.

That still doesn’t change how I feel.

Argh!

What do they know?

MEME: Occam’s, or Ockham’s, razor

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occam%27s_razor

Occam’s razor

*** begin quote ***

Occam’s razor (also written as Ockham’s razor, Latin lex parsimoniae) is the law of parsimony, economy or succinctness. It is a principle urging one to select among competing hypotheses that which makes the fewest assumptions and thereby offers the simplest explanation of the effect.

*** end quote ***

Or, as I like to say it, “KISS — Keep it simple, stupid!”.

I took some trash yday for being too erudite (That’s, for the intellectually challenged or those eddykated in a Gooferment Skrule, using de big wurds.) and making a joke at the expense of poor old Ockham and his razor or a German knife.

Tuff!

Grow up.

Stretch your paradigms and memes.

(Pair of dimes is how you perceive stuff. Your eyes can deceive you. Look in Johari’s box.)

(Meme, like genes for ideas. How you think about thinking. SOP’s for life. An idea that can spread from human mind to human mind. Like a fad, rumor, or (mis)understanding. Think MegaBall Jackpot craze, “pet rock”, religious beliefs, and concepts like “money”. Memes can be handy shorthand, like the United States Government, Alma Mater, political party, or the “Tea Party”. They can be false like “Social Security is insurance”, “Laws protect me”, or even that there is such a thing as “government”. They can be unprovable “God Exists”. Or obvious, “Law of Gravity”.)

I refuse to accept that using the correct word, even if it’s big, uncommon, or strange, is being pedantic, obtuse, or show offy.

So, get a dictionary, use Wikipedia, or get lost!
