of course the socialist Jon Stewart gives the Lib News Network a free pass while eviscerating fox news
 
2012-06-29 06:50:27 PM  

Wangiss: So Fox is the exception that proves the rule, if that makes sense.


It doesn't, actually. Because there is no news network that is as liberal as Fox News is conservative. Yet conservatives constantly play the victim when they cry that the media is liberal and out to get them.

boozehat: j__z: I do like Stewart, but I get tired of hearing about Foxnews on his show.

did you watch the bit?

he wasn't bagging on fox. it was mostly cnn bashing


He holds Fox in disdain, but he loathes CNN.

Let's try again. Let's say there are ten networks and one is conservative as hell. The conservatives will flock to the one that is conservative as hell even if it's too damned conservative because the other networks are too damned liberal. So the conservative one gets more viewers than any single non-conservative network (be it neutral of leftist) because it has nine times the potential viewer base in political terms. (Fuzzy math, but I'm hoping you'll get my point.)

If that doesn't make sense or relate to the situation, please let me know why.

Yeah, I get your point but liberals and conservatives are split about 50/50. So why is there one network that is ridiculously right wing that is the #1 news network in the country and yet right wingers still cry bout there being a liberal media?

Back in my day we had 3 channels. News came on for 30 minutes in the morning and noon, then for an hour at 6 and 11PM.
Even then there was too much damn news on.

Launch Code: 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.


OK, I really don't think you're trolling here; I assume you just truly have no clue about what is and is not being taxed, and what not having health insurance means to you, personally.

You have a family income of $110k a year and you don't currently have health insurance? That is... a bad, bad idea. A sudden catastrophe that costs a farkton of money and stops you from working for a while will eat through your savings horribly fast, if you have any. If you were at the $500k level, I might, might think you'd made an OK decision. Maybe.

So. Your company apparently offers medical. TAKE IT. Just... just, please, for the good of everyone, take it. Especially if the job offers a level where you don't pay, in which case, why don't you already have it? I'm uncertain why that would require you to tailor your job time, but happy to hear your explanation.

Since you, apparently, won't be paying anything for insurance, but you will have it, you won't be subject to the taxes. There. Done.

----

For the rest of the morons who keep saying "THEYRE GONNA TAX INCOMES UNDER 250K OMG ONOZ":

A. If you have an income between $75k and $250k, chances are you're eligible for insurance through your employer. If you're not taking that, then you're an idiot--and a freeloader.
B. If you have an income lower than that, and you still don't have insurance, you will qualify for a tax rebate, yes, rebate, that will pay for most, if not all, of your insurance.

The only people subject to any new expenses are people who could previously afford insurance but didn't buy it, and will now have to do so or pay the tax. This class of people are what I call "freeloaders." Eventually, the rest of us who pay into the system will have to pay for your medical bills, probably through EMTALA.

That said, I would have been plenty happy with a provision that, instead of putting in the tax penalty, revoked EMTALA and similar protections for people who didn't have insurance and weren't completely indigent/homeless/etc. Those people would, of course, die when they had a catastrophe.

I really don't think that's going to happen considering they're not live shows. Although, at the rate the networks are going, even being a few hours behind there's a chance TDS/CR could soon be the first to break a major story accurately.

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.


$695 for me and $695 for my wife? I thought it was free?! What's the most I can make for the free stuff? I don't need anymore taxes.

Just wait until you have back problems from driving that truck day in and day out. You know that being a truck driver is listed as one of the top ten most dangerous jobs in America? It's not because of accidents; it's largely because of cumulative back problems. Worried about a tax? How about the $120 you're going to have to pay every time you go to the chiropractor, and then don't even get started on how much the surgery is going to cost. Yeah, back surgeries don't get done by orthopedic surgeons, they get done by neurosurgeons. Neurosurgeons don't come cheap. Lumbar fusion could set you back about $90,000.


Ok so your argument is that it's ok to extract money from someone else to pay for the expensive Lumbar fusion surgery you should have saved up for. It's not like truck drivers don't know about this issue and it's not like they can't put money away.

No..your solution is to FORCE the rest of the population to pay their money to your doctor so you can get surgery that you knew you'd most likely need.

So you'll end up forcing the doctor to do the surgery for less than market rates (it's coming, wait and see) and force others to contribute to your health care costs.

You (and idiots like you) actually think this is sustainable? Really? Please to see the NUMEROUS examples of socialist medicine falling into ruin around the world as to why this does not work.

We're going to lost a LOT of jobs to this idiocy. We're going to lose a LOT of doctors. We're all going to get hit with massive tax hikes, painfully rationed medical care and substandard service. Just so we can satisfy some people's idea of "whats fair".

Ah well, this will just bankrupt the whole idiotic system that much faster. If you think you're going to get anything approaching quality medical care form this nightmare I've got a bridge to sell you.

Not to mention the fact that this ruling is an abortion. The federal government just got a green light to impose ANY sort of noxious rules on your private life because the SCOTUS decided anything is "constitutional" because it's done via taxation.

They want us to buy a subscription to NYT, carbon credits, green tee shirts, government war bonds, etc..? They'll just force us to pay a penalty "tax" if we don't buy one. They sky's the limit folks...they can do ANYTHING as long as they wrap it up in a tax.

This decision has destroyed the rule of law in this country.

So you're saying we need billionaires to give massive chunks of money to make up for the ultra-liberal media that has no conservative voice whatsoever?

"So you're saying"

Classic.

Ahh, you have no rebuttal then.

Classic Conservative.

You want me to rebut your misinterpretation of my opinion? I don't understand why a person would do that.

Also, I'm not a conservative; I'm a progressive minarchist. Antanas Mockus is a good example.

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.

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.

i pay taxes that go to local public schools that my children don't attend.

just sayin'


I paid taxes that paid for a war that none of my family members participated in... Just sayin...

It costs too much, and/or takes too big of a bite out of your paycheck. Not everybody is rolling in IT sit-on-your-ass-and-post-all-day dough.

I'm not sure how much health insurance will cost for you and your wife... I'm not familiar with her employment situation or yours, but if you've structured your truck driving as a business, you can buy through the exchange as a small business (under 25 employees) and the government will reimburse you for 40-60% of the cost of the plan you pick, depending on other particulars... you will also be eligible for a tax credit (either as individuals or a married couple) to cover yet more of the cost... but should you choose to insure yourself and be responsible, there is no penalty... that said, the cost of insurance for you and your wife may vary widely depending on what plan you pick and through what structure you go.

milominderbinder: We're going to lost a LOT of jobs to this idiocy. We're going to lose a LOT of doctors. We're all going to get hit with massive tax hikes, painfully rationed medical care and substandard service. Just so we can satisfy some people's idea of "whats fair".

Ah well, this will just bankrupt the whole idiotic system that much faster. If you think you're going to get anything approaching quality medical care form this nightmare I've got a bridge to sell you.

Not to mention the fact that this ruling is an abortion. The federal government just got a green light to impose ANY sort of noxious rules on your private life because the SCOTUS decided anything is "constitutional" because it's done via taxation.

They want us to buy a subscription to NYT, carbon credits, green tee shirts, government war bonds, etc..? They'll just force us to pay a penalty "tax" if we don't buy one. They sky's the limit folks...they can do ANYTHING as long as they wrap it up in a tax.

This decision has destroyed the rule of law in this country.i>

Aww, bullchit!
Just another rope a dope. The GOP demanded the mandatory thingie in the first place and now they can claim they fought the good fight to get it removed, but sadly lost.
PRESTO! Sells to both sides of their financiers.

Look, you got taxes in my insurance.
No, you got your farking insurance in my taxes.
Two, two, two wins in one.

relaxitsjustme: Hilarious! Definitely watch the second clip too.


I snarfled at "the case of Peeing on My Leg v. Telling Me It's Raining."

milominderbinder:
You (and idiots like you) actually think this is sustainable? Really? Please to see the NUMEROUS examples of socialist medicine falling into ruin around the world as to why this does not work.


What a farking joke. You actually believe that the US has the only adequate healthcare system in the world. That's cute.

FACT: The US pays more per capita and per GDP on healthcare by a large margin than any other country.

FACT: Administrative costs in the US healthcare system, most of which are Billing and Coding, dwarf those of all other countries.

FACT: The US has among the worst ratio of gross medical expenditures vs. amount spent on patient care anywhere in the world.

FACT: Medical bills account for most bankruptcies in the us.

Your whole line about "the rule of law has been destroyed" is so farking tired. For real. It's like people like you encounter any law that is slightly offensive to your sensibilities, you start in with this sky-is-falling bullshiat. Enough. Man the fark up already and pay your farking taxes and quit biatching, like the rest of the civilized people in the world.

relaxitsjustme: swingbozo: Launch Code: 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.

That's some weapon grade stupid there, sparky. You really should stop watching fox news.

He's a truck driver so he's probably listening to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck all day.


And probably Coast to Coast at night. I wonder what it's like to live one's entire life in a nonstop stream of complete bullshiat. I mean, I'm sure it's a lot more fun than being a grown-up in the real world, and having to deal with the real complexities of life and society, but I can't imagine it's very fulfilling to never know what's really true.

falcon176: of course the socialist Jon Stewart gives the Lib News Network a free pass while eviscerating fox news


I'm guessing you're not allowed to use a rubber spoon without supervision.
