My biggest issue is that people don't understand "Obamacare" or as it is actually called "Healthcare Reform" or even "Affordable Care Act". All some of these people see is the word Obama and then immediately they have hate boners for it.

Not exactly scientific, but...

Yeah, someone posted that on Facebook. It is an interesting look at the situation, even if not scientific.

For those that don't know I work in the health insurance industry. I am one of those evil people that is just out to get money and is in league with the devil. From my experience the above clip isn't abnormal. I have heard calls where people say "Obamacare" and a rep says "Healthcare Reform" (because we don't use the term Obamacare) and customer corrects them and says "No, I mean Obamacare. I don't know what this healthcare reform stuff is about". People are ignorant. Willfully or just because of the misinformation in the media.

I don't like politics. As a logical. Rational person I can look at a situation and say "If A+B=C and C is good then let's do A+B" whereas both sides in politics say "If A+B=C and the other party wants C then lets fuck each others asses until A+B goes away" It seems to be the worst with the Teabagger party, but both sides do it and it needs to fucking stop. it won't. I know that. But fuck....it is so useless.

All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Since we seem to be focused on the shutdown, a friend of mine on Facebook posted an excellent quote on the subject:

“Think about the precedent. What’s next? What if the Democratic extreme said, ‘Well we’re not going to sign a budget unless you do away with assault weapons?’ What if we’re not going to have a budget unless 20 people around here decide that everybody under the age of 40 should wear a tin hat around? This is not the way you govern a great country.”

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/derek-hough-addresses-julianne-hough-blackface-halloween-costume-article-1.1499889


Julianna Hough's (a white girl) is in a bit of controversy for wearing a Halloween costume that was deemed inappropriate.
She dressed up as "Crazy Eyes", a black character from the TV show "Orange is the New Black".

.... I WILL say the costume looks bad, but I seriously don't see this as offensive or use of what "Black Face" actually is.  It's no better than Nelly's song "Batter Up" or this Japanese guy "black facing" Sazh

She didn't act out of line and it looks like she was with a group of girls doing the same theme.
