Happy Thanksgiving… or as it's now known, that thing before and in-between Black Friday sales. Although this may be the year they cancel Thanksgiving (sung to the tune of "The Year Without a Santa Claus"). All because the weather wouldn't cooperate and they couldn't blow up the parade balloons for the Macy's Thanksgiving "Why don't you come to New York and see the full length version of all these shows we're demoing here, and buy these has been and wannabe artists albums, oh and you may want to empty your wallets of cash, but only in NYC because everywhere else sucks" Parade. Me, I'll be watching Detroit's America's Parade.

I always love it when conservatives thrown down the rhetorical gauntlet. I'm even more gleeful than the chatting monkeys who are going on about the Healthcare.gov website.
"How Republicans are sabotaging the ACA, hurting the poor, and driving up costs for the middle class." So, today on Fox News I got to see a little segment with the crawler title something like "CEOs now say they'll pass more of health cares cost to employees." I'm sure they were saying it was Obamacare's fault, but this just continues a trend that is now almost two decades old. Also note, where politicians didn't intentionally sabotage Obamacare, it seems to work just fine. (Grokked from Jay Lake)
