Evening Open Thread, With Links Which Contain Words and Stuff

If it's a family holiday, it must be time for progressive Stepford Relatives to get their dose of Obama Talking Points to inflict on family members again.

The Obama administration wants you to bring a side of healthcare politics to your family picnic this weekend.

After ObamaCare's big win at the Supreme Court last week, federal health officials are serving up some tips about talking to family members who may be less-than-enthused that ObamaCare is here to stay.

"You should be prepared when Aunt Janine says something like, 'Obamacare hasnít helped anyone!'" a spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services wrote in a blog post on Thursday.

For instance, if your Uncle Ted starts calling Obamacare a train wreck, you should calmly explain that he's "otten ahold of some old talking points," the spokesman recommends.

Then, he suggests that you recite a three-paragraph response citing 14 figures ranging from healthcare inflation to the growth in full-time versus part-time employment.

"With greater access to affordable, quality health insurance, the Affordable Care Act is helping individuals and strengthening our economy!" the sample script goes.

"Now, would you like more corn?"

I think all people aspire to be Walking Commercial Messages for someone else's propaganda organs.

This really is a weird thing, and tells you something about the bent and insecure psyches of the progressive -- the value the intellect, but have so little of it! They crave someone giving them a Bluffers Guide to Sounding Smart.

This year, Uncle Ted will see how smart I am. He'll see.

In case you've forgotten, the New York Times is a stuffed full of lies like a Lie Mule smuggling 20 pounds of lies from Colombia in condoms, each filled with 400 grams of Lies.

From the sidebar, this scientist lies.

NASCAR tells fans to stop bringing their confederate flags to races.

"As members of the NASCAR industry, we join NASCAR in the desire to make our events among the most fan-friendly, welcoming environments in all of sports and entertainment.

"To do that, we are asking our fans and partners to join us in a renewed effort to create an all-inclusive, even more welcoming atmosphere for all who attend our events. This will include the request to refrain from displaying the Confederate Flag at our facilities and NASCAR events."

I'd like to see one of these craven corporations driven into bankruptcy by a righteous counter-boycott, just to show we have had it. It would be nice to see NASCAR go.

And don't tell me you love auto-racing. So what? NASCAR is not auto-racing; NASCAR is a corporation that maintains some records and contracts. Could be replaced in a month.

You're not going to believe this, but Obama f***ed more shit up in the world, pressuring Arab allies not arm one of the few groups willing to fight ISIS, the Kurds.

Because, you know: Iran's going to do that. Just as soon as Obama gives them their nukes.

Wink.

Chris Christie can't shake Hug-Gate.

Brit Hume thinks that Hillary Clinton is a big fat liar.

This professor warns that "Trigger Warnings" may chill speech and thought and retard the intellect, but, get this, this dummy says that like it's a bad thing rather than precisely that which is intended.

Since we have no podcast for you this week, why not give Brent's and Alex the Chick's a whirl?

Or Jeff B's?


Below, a well-received speech by Rick Perry on economics.


And that's all I got. Tomorrow I'll post a few open threads and some light Mike Flynn propaganda, but I'll mostly be taking the day off.
