Whoa — the MegaMillions jackpot is up to 189 million!!?!?!? ~the kind of person likely to buy the Daily News

Ooh. Such hate.

If they are advertising suffering there better darn well be suffering.

I can say this because there won’t be.

What is so maddening so they all KNOW the Republican complaints about Obamacare are legit. They’ve reported on it, but they are sooo blinded by their ideology it doesn’t matter.

If you want to relate this moment in time to anything, this is an opportunity to answer the question how did the German people not be aware of the Holocaust even though the facts and the events were occurring right before their eyes.

THIS IS HOW!!

I just followed the NY Daily Ooze’s links to the NYS Obamacare website.

Guess what? PAGE NOT AVAILABLE.

Oh, yeah, this is going to be a rip-roaring success. I can feel it!

Never mind Dingy Harry not only said, “There are three ways to do things; my way, my way, my way,” but explicitly voted to keep the illegal 75% PlaceboCare Congressional subsidy as part of doing things his way, his way, his way.

Good, let them play it up as much as possible.

Remember how horrible sequestration was? Dead bodies in the streets, college professors jumping from high rise dormitories due to lack of grant money, etc. The humanity. It was horrible.

Oh wait, that’s right. Sequestration winded up being a mere blip.

The only difference between this and sequestration will be the fact the media can go out and find sympathetic families directly affected by a breadwinner being furloughed.

Of course I don’t think that will have much impact on the average citizen because over the last 5 years millions upon millions of citizens have seen the same exact thing with friends and family due to the federal government not being shutdown. Jobs being killed by federal regulations.

So let them keep trying to hype this into something it’s not. This combined with all those younger people writing checks for health insurance every month for the next year is going to wind up being a landslide victory for Republicans all over the map.

Someone should ask Mort Zuckerman if he agrees with the cover of his own paper.

college professors jumping from high rise dormitories due to lack of grant money

That was supposed to be an upside.

Once again, the left shows us all the way to the New Civility they do often proclaim is a necessity.

The Daily News is a liberal rag. Who cares?

Throat Wobbler Mangrove on October 1, 2013 at 10:57 AM

The weird thing with the Daily News is that other than on guns (where they’re foaming at the mouth liberals beyond anything even some of the most fervent gun-grabbers could muster), the DN Editorial Page is… actually moderate to right-of-center.

It’s their news operation which is off the reservation left.

Funny, I thought of the White House when I saw the caption “House of Turds.”

Speaking of the media, I’ve been wondering how they would react if Boehner accused Obama of turning America into a “banana republic.” It would probably be the biggest scandal since “macaca” and “nappy-headed ho’s.”

Big government never contracts. It only grows more powerful

Won’t be much left.

Your list of demands is a publicity stunt

“what happened that day was emblematic of a deeply troubling trend among progressives…”

“The jobs are still leaving. Nothing has stopped.”

Bad vendor. Bad! No cookie!

“The Corps is just starting to grapple with the issues the court has identified.”

“So you want me to sing my praises, is that what you’re saying?”

Why would we possibly want that?

“I mean he sold our country to The Russians.”
