Obamacare Grilled on... Comedy Central?

Jon Stewart is good at what he does.

I can admit that.

Even if I do find myself disagreeing with a lot of what he says... preaches... etc.

Last night was pretty good.

If you haven't seen Kathleen Sebelius on his show, you missed a pretty entertaining 7 minutes.

It was epic. Pure gold.

Stewart seemed agitated by the fact that companies could delay Obamacare if they wanted while individuals cannot. Seems the large companies hold the power in this country... :)

Worth watching - I'd skip to about the 3-minutes remaining mark if you're pressed for time.

So... Only Cops Had Guns?

First, let me say I have a ton of respect for Police Officers.

The media?

Not so much.

Thursday afternoon's headlines were littered with rhetoric about a shooter on Capitol Hill.

They were right, except not in the way we've come to understand these headlines.

An unarmed mother with a history of mental illness drove a single car through a barricade near the White House.

Then, police shot the unarmed woman and she died.

The rage of gun-grabbers could once again be felt as headlines across the major news outlets of America had to be changed once again. The "intruder" didn't have a gun. In fact, she had a son with her and that's about it.

I'm not saying police officers didn't have a right to shoot her. I'm just saying the media overplayed the "chaos" of the situation to hyperbole, once again striking firearms fear into the hears of the uneducated electorate.
