Obama admin. knew millions could not keep their health insurance

Obama admin. knew millions could not keep their health insurance - Investigations 

... President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years. ...

CBS News: Obamacare Website Provides "Incredibly Misleading" Estimates To Consumers | RealClearPolitics

This was all so predictable. Liberals are inept when it comes to doing so many things. There is a world of difference between, "Wouldn't it be nice if etc" and actually making it nice. So, sure, it would be nice if everyone had health insurance but they are finding out it isn't so easy to actually do that. I have no confidence in inept people doing complicated things. In this day and age of Amazon and a million other websites doing much more complicated things successfully, it is embarrassing that they couldn't get this right. Come on, it's a website any 12 year old could have built.

Krauthammer, Jon Stewart Clash Over Conservatism, Politics On "Daily Show" | RealClearPolitics 

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Ted Cruz is not the official spokesman for American conservatism. If you want somebody who has been out there, who has offered an alternative, the person who offered an alternative for example is Paul Ryan. But, let me start with his assumption. His assumption is not that government doesn't have a role. His assumption is that the welfare state as established with great success by liberals has now reached a point where it no longer fits. ...
I highly recommend watching these three videos.

Relaxation technique

Relaxation technique 
In case you are having a rough day, here's a stress management technique recommended in all the latest psychological journals.   The funny thing is that it really does work and will make you smile. 
1. Picture yourself lying on your belly on a warm rock that hangs out over a crystal clear stream.
2. Picture yourself with both your hands dangling in the cool running water.
3. Birds are sweetly singing in the cool mountain air.
4. No one knows your secret place.
5. You are in total seclusion from that hectic place called the world.
6. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.
7. The water is so clear that you can make out the face of the Congressman you are holding underwater. 
See it worked. You're smiling. You feel better already.
