Damn that was one of Stewart's better moments. The end of that video was hilarious.

I don't know why anyone bothers to watch CNN anymore. They have been really going downhill especially since Turner sold his stake in the company. Wolf Blitzer is a full on retard.

Your job is to report the news, not to get the f*cking scoop on other TV shows. This isn't a newspaper.

They would have been better off tuning into scotusblog. I'm thankful Fark put scotusblog's link up yesterday because the coverage from them was MUCH better. I didn't have to participate in the CNN debacle.

Really? Still can't hit Hulu from Canadia. Here's the clip for us north of the 49th.

I can't play it. Never can (from Canada). Unless I go to the Canadian web-site and that is too much work. Watch every night anyways.

Regrettably, the CNN/Fox bit was the only good part of the show. The team coverage really beat the joke into the ground and 3 Tenacious D songs is about 4 too many at this point. Really thought he would have done better with this one.

I had checked CNN when I got up that morning and they said the mandate was struck down. So I got ready for worked all ticked off. Then I checked it again before I left for work and it said the mandate was held up! Good day at work!

At what income level do the new obamacare taxes start. I make 75k a year, the wife makes 40k. I can tailor my truck driving job to get the free medical but not pay the new tax, but by how much?More time at home but less money, whatever. I thought he said he wasn't going to raise our taxes.
 
2012-06-29 03:36:18 PM
It really is remarkable how farking bad CNN has become. Every single facet of it. The anchors/personalities, the programming lineup. I mean even their website is a farking trainwreck.

Look at this crap from 'This Just In' section where the bulk of the 'news' they cover can be found on the main page. It's just rows of hyperlinks on unrelated subjects. I mean look at this pile of fail on their right now:

• Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes split | Photos
• 5 ways to cope with heat | U.S. bakes
• Postal Service closures start next week
• Stocks soar on eurozone news
• House OKs highway, student loan bill
• Hijack attempt thwarted in China
• Madoff's brother pleads guilty
• Arsonist dies after verdict in court
• GOP launches anti-Obamacare blitz
• Zimmerman seeks new bond
• Boy missing after Olympic torch relay
• Holder held in contempt | Reaction
• 31 victims ID'd in Air Force sex scandal
• NBA draft night winners, losers SI
• Nadal upset SI | Who is this upstart?
• Ticker: Obama's 'BFD' shirt
• Reporter stripped, sexually attacked
• Man jumps to help baby on tracks
• Rielle Hunter grilled over privacy
• Ke$ha gets a tattoo where?

It's like Drudge without the sirens.

Why Fareed Zakaria has a show on there (granted one buried at a horrible timeslot one day a week) is beyond me.

Colbert's take, for those interested (and too lazy to go look for it).
 
2012-06-29 03:38:23 PM
Modern US news is a couple of old ladies gossiping over the fence. It is NOTHING more. Sure you have the crazy paranoid Fox News lady who keeps complaining about the chem trails, but it doesn't mean the other old ladies aren't parroting random facts they heard or just thought up in their heads.

But there's good news: RomneyCare ruled constitutional! Woohoo!

I'm sad the shows are going on vacation (again already?) for the next two weeks. The next week will have way too much material to just sum up when they get back.

If you get health insurance, there's no new tax.

If you refuse to either take part in medicaid, the exchanges, your employers plan, or purchase it some other way, then the tax for you would be 95 dollars in 2014, 300 dollars in 2015, 695 in 2016, and the higher of either 695 (inflation adjusted) or 2.2 percent of your gross adjusted income thereafter.

Not as funny as Jon's but more outraged. Even when they dumbasses attempted to reverse themselves, they still got it wrong, saying that the entire law had been upheld. It wasn't. The Court ruled that the provision to take away all of a state's Medicaid funding if they didn't expand enrollment was unconstitutional.

Spoilers! he compared CNN's screwup to an overly excited kid opening a christmas present and smashing through the packaging revealing just feathers and a weird red goo and being like "WTF is this crap", just to have his parents tell him it was a parrot before he destroyed it. His version is much funnier.

/yes those commercials suck.

For people who seem to only get their information from Fox News (and are thus clueless), your taxes are going up by a jillionty dollars.

For the rest of us, if we have medical insurance, they don't go up at all.

You do know if you do get health insurance there is no tax and in fact depending on income you may get a tax credit. If your employer has health insurance available why would you not get it in this day and age?

After speaking with a couple of conservative co-workers (who of course have insurance through work) the consensus seems to be that they simply don't like that they have to be FORCED by the big bad government to get insurance or pay a tax -- even though they've never ever been poor enough where weighing health coverage versus grocery bills is a tough choice.

Honestly, who would opt to pay the tax and not get coverage? I'm guessing the tax is probably as expensive as the insurance itself.
