Readers!
 
For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

Steny Hoyer, #2 Democrat in the House, admitted today that Democrats knew that Obamacare would cause the cancellation of millions of health plans.

The Democrats really think Americans are stupid. This is how Hoyer tried to explain away Obama’s often-repeated lie that “if you like your plan you get to keep it”:

Asked by another reporter how repeated statements by Obama to the contrary weren’t “misleading,” Hoyer said “I don’t think the message was wrong. I think the message was accurate. It was not precise enough…[it] should have been caveated with – ‘assuming you have a policy that in fact does do what the bill is designed to do.’”

    Where have we heard this before?

    “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.”

    The argument being pushed that the policies cancelled were terrible or that health insurance companies had some nefarious reason for selling them is crap. Whenever I see a Democrat on TV saying these things, it makes me angry. They don’t know anything about the policies that were cancelled.

    A policy would be cancelled if it didn’t offer maternity coverage for a male or dental for kids who don’t have kids.

    THOMAS SOWELL, the anti Obama.

    How is it that two men can come to such different conclusions about life and the individuals potential in America?

    I salute you Dr. Sowell. http://www.newsmagazinenetwork.com/2013102441450/thomas-sowell-race-hustling-results/

    “How is it that two men can come to such different conclusions about life and the individuals potential in America?”

    Upbringing, just as Sowell suggests.

    Some people were brought up to be leaders. Others were not.

    Sowell was.
    .

  • So, for five years the supposed smartest President ever and World’s Greatest Orator wasn’t precise enough? The fact that mainstream media doesn’t call ‘bullshit’ even now shows that their investment in Obama is beyond ‘fanatic’ and is surpassing ‘delusional’.

  • What scares me most is that the refusal to see Obama for what he is is not simply confined to the mainstream media. Those media types only represent a larger population group, all of whom remain blindly allied with the Democratic Party. With such blind loyalty very bad things can happen, evil acts committed by the leadership of that party because they know they can practically get away with anything.

  • “hey know they can practically get away with anything.”

    They are.

  • I’ve been reading Dr. Sowell for years. He was influential in my interest in the study of economics. Dr. Sowell, is, quite simply, The Man.
