• Keeping Klahn on his Toes

    From TIM RICHARDSON@1:123/140 to ALL on Wed Nov 13 19:40:00 2013
    On 11-10-13, BOB KLAHN said to TIM RICHARDSON:

    Austerity is killing countries in Europe bit by bit, and your
    side wants to put it in here.

    I think you're either confusing the word `austerity' with
    some other concept, or you are being willfully ignorant.

    No, I am not, and you are.

    We are in debt up to our ears because of free trade, wars for
    profit, and tax cuts for the rich.

    He lists three causes. #1 is not austerity, #2 is not
    austerity, and #3 is the OPPOSITE of austerity.

    Which is relevant to what?

    Now he pulls the old `switcheroo'!

    You are too du

    "Nothing beyond this point read." ...Bob Klahn

    So....they are now trying to back BO's `If you like your plan you can keep
    your plan. If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor' up and make it
    NOT a bald-faced deliberate lie at all...but a `mis-speak'!

    As I said a few days ago, stuff like this would start:

    NYT: Obama 'Misspoke' When He Lied About Keeping Your Insurance


    by Breitbart News3 Nov 2013416post a comment

    President Obama may have lied repeatedly while telling Americans that they would be able to keep their insurance plans if they liked them, but according to The New York Times, that's not a lie - that's just a slip of the tongue.

    "Mr. Obama clearly misspoke when he said that,"¥ the Times editorial board spun. Then the Times said that the fib was totally justified, since Americans had to be convinced to give up their insurance for better insurance plans
    under Obamacare - as though the free market does not allow people to do that already. In true fascist fashion, the Times wrote:

    Indeed, in all the furor, people forget how terrible many of the soon-to-be-abandoned policies were. This overblown controversy has also obscured the crux of what health care reform is trying to do, which is to guarantee that everyone can buy insurance without being turned away or charged exorbitant rates for pre-existing conditions and that everyone can receive benefits that really protect them against financial or medical disaster, not illusory benefits that prove inadequate when a crisis strikes.

    The ends justify the means in Times-land, which explains the Times' peculiar willingness to cover for Obama's lies for years on end.
