  • Obamacare Shows America Suffers From A President Dangerously Disconnected From Reality

    Forbes ^ | April 4, 2014 | Peter Ferrara Contributor
    The population of the U.S. is 314 million. On the day Obamacare was passed, the estimate of the uninsured was 60 million. So in this context, the supposed 7 million Americans signed up for insurance on the Obamacare Exchanges, even if that is a valid number, and all of those have actually started paying premiums, both of which are highly dubious, does not mean any significant success for Obamacare. That is especially so since at least 6 million Americans have lost their health insurance due to Obamacare, so far, with more to come once the illegally and arbitrarily delayed employer...

    Google might not be a scrappy startup anymore, but despite being one of the biggest companies in the world, they have managed to hold on to a unique sense of humour and that's most apparent on April 1 every year. The company has a long tradition of April Fools' Day jokes, and different teams like Chrome and Maps and Gmail all come up with their own pranks so there's a lot to choose from just out of Google. Last year, more than a few people actually believed that Google Nose - a sniff search system - was a real thing....

    Illinois Review ^ | April 1, 2014 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    Rarely has a bill passed by Congress endured as many nicknames, both positive and negative, as The Affordable Care Act of 2010. Obamacare, Nationalized Healthcare, Socialized Medicine, even The Abominable Care Act… the list seems endless, as do the tentacles of this far-reaching 2000-some-page law, not to mention the stacks of enabling regulations that already tower over the average homeowner’s foreclosed house. But the critics and skeptics must admit at last, four years after its passage, that the program is working far beyond the wildest dreams of its supporters. Despite almost daily, almost laughable website crashes, holes in its security...

  • Ted Cruz Flashes His Churchill Tattoo While Touting Obamacare Alternative

    On Tuesday morning, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) showed off an April Fools’ Day Winston Churchill bicep tattoo, fooling at least one co-host of Fox & Friends. Cruz was on the show to tout his plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act and expand health savings accounts. Towards the end of the segment, co-host Steve Doocy asked the senator whether it’s true he has some new ink. Cruz rolled up a sleeve and showed off a cigar-smoking mug of Churchill painted in black on his arm, inspired by the Los Angeles street art depicting the lawmaker as a tattooed greaser. While...

UN Secretary Gen. Ban Ki-moon spoke about the impetus behind the controversial measure at a press conference over the weekend in New York City, the site of the final negotiations between the 193 Member States. “Regulating the international transfers of both weapons and ammunition is a key component of a robust arms trade treaty, as is limiting civilian access to small arms and munitions,” said Ban Ki-moon. “There’s...

    Google’s decision to mark Easter Sunday with a doodle of leftist icon Cesar Chavez atop its search engine angered some users in what they see as a snub of Jesus on the day Christians mark his resurrection. However, Google executives offered quick apologies for the snub, issuing this statement: "We at Google honor Easter and are mortified that our Doodle of Chavez in any way upstaged this Holy Christian Holiday. We are reviewing the way Google Doodles are chosen on a go-forward basis." The statement appeared to appease some high-profile Christian figures. "I'm not much of a fan of Google,"...

Today, April 1st, Google is introducing a new input method designed by the great-great grandson of Samuel F. B. Morse: Gmail Tap for Android and iOS. Gmail Tap takes the keyboard from 26 keys to just two. Every letter of the alphabet is represented by a simple pattern of dots and dashes, and once you know them you can...

    Note from the Curator: I created the first version of this list in the late 1990s.

Luckily I was in grad school, so I had a lot of spare time on my hands ;-).

    Jefferson Smith loves a good political joke. Early last year, the then-freshman Oregon House member from Portland was getting ready for bed when he and his wife, Katy, began bantering back and forth about what might be the ultimate political prank, something that could lighten the increasingly divisive political mood among his colleagues. As Smith recalls, the idea came almost instantly. "What if we were to Rick Roll the legislature without anybody noticing?" he wondered. And that was the seed for what may ultimately prove to be one of the most elaborate political jokes of all time: A nearly two-minute...

    (March 31, 2010) Washington DC - In a move guaranteed to generate both support and opposition, President Obama today ordered the replacement of all pistols carried in the line of duty by U.S. Military personnel and Federal law enforcement officers. The White House says new firearms are a “giant leap forward in technology,” but admits they are manufactured overseas. The move is seen as a bow to the new “all-welcoming” military, a set of forces where gays are now accepted in the barracks and foxholes if not the showers. But because the weapons will be made overseas, Connecticut Interdigitation Commissioner...

    Wasilla, Alaska (UIP)— Shocking news last night as former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin announced that she is following in the footsteps of the noble senator from Pennsylvania, Arlen Specter, and is switching parties to become a Democrat. This news comes just five days after Palin appeared as the keynote speaker at a Tea Party rally in Searchlight, Nev., where she appeared in her former guise as an angry white female and told the crowd of at least a dozen or so people that she was tired of government intrusion into her life and that she was going to do...

    Earlier this week, Fox News host Sean Hannity broadcast his eponymous show Hannity from the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley. Towards the end of the show, Hannity made a rather startling claim that conservatives won the debate regarding health care. Perhaps more startling, or more to the point, unsettling, was his facetious labeling of his fans as “Tim McVeigh wannabes.” Hannity’s full quote can be viewed in the video below, but he says “I think we won the debate… When you think of the vast majorities that they have in Congress and they had to bribe, backroom deals, corruption....

    Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh will be announcing his run for President of the United States when he returns to hosting his popular broadcast following the Easter Weekend. An anonymous source close to Limbaugh has revealed that he has been rapidly gearing up for the GOP nomination race while he as been away from the show this past week. His website only says that he is in a 'super secret location', jokingly suggesting he may be looking for health care alternatives. The source elaborated that Limbaugh's feelings about running for office have been slowly changing over the past year...

    Google will close its Australian operations, effectively blacklisting the country in response to the Federal Government's "evil" plan to filter the internet. ZDNet.com.au has confirmed that the search engine giant will close its doors on Australia for good, effective immediately, marking the end of four years of its operation here and a long-running battle with the government over its plan to filter the internet. Known for changing its famous logo to commemorate special occasions, Google's Australian site this morning featured a somewhat blunt statement on how the company viewed its place in the local market (see screenshot). "We've already left...
