WTF CALPERS and Private Equity?!

The mammoth public pension fund has raised the level of its allowed investments in private equity from 10% to 15%. (PEU Report)

So millions upon millions more of hard earned wage-worker dollars are - Voila - funneled to Blackstone, Carlyle and Apollo, mammoth players of the Gargantuan Wage-Looting Scheme private equity (formerly more accurately known as "asset stripping"). Read below the fold...

Citi Bike NYC (ALTA) Looting Customers Via "Late" Fees

NY Post. Since it began 2 years ago Citi-Bike, the privatized bike-sharing program given by Ex-Mayor-for-Life "Mike" Bloomberg to the Canadian Alta company, has racked up $4 Million (!) dollars in "late" fees.

Citi-Bike had early on proven itself to be an operational #FAIL in the classic manner of neo-liberal enterprise (We Deliver the Most Craptastic Services!) early on, with docks not working, bikes being broken or unavailable, etc. Read below the fold...

This (Obama) is our President?! WTF

Among so many other more substantive reasons. What is this, "I'm a Golf Homeboy"? Is he doing a video for MTV? This is the guy making a speech to Congress about why we're going to war with IS[IL][IS]?

PART I - On the wholly arbitrary nature of drug prices in the USA.
Same medicine, same number of pills, same generic. At the CVS-Equivalent Pharmacy: $138.00. At "HealthWarehouse.Com" (US online pharmacy): $28.94. Because Markets?!

Citibike NYC #FAIL

... but Alta (aka Corruption) wants the City to start paying for the "strictly privately funded" program. This is the program that former TinPot Dictator mayor "Mike" Bloomberg kept insisting was 100% funded by "private entities" (JP Morgan, VISA, and no doubt some "help" from his "philanthropy" (this last is rank speculation, of course)). This, while there was a $164Million set aside in his last budget's capital spending section for ... drumroll, Citibike program. Read below the fold...

NY Docs Sue UnitedHealth for Dropping Docs from Med AdvNetworks

That's 2,000 doctors. And what is more, the networks in question are in the UHC Medicare Advantage plans. So the patients losing their doctors are the elderly with serious ongoing conditions. Medicare Advantage plans are, in short summary, the private insurance supplemental plans that Medicare eligible persons with enough money to pay for them get in order to not have to pay for the Medicare A and B no-out-of-pocket-limits, 20% co-insurance, and for "Medicare" prescription coverage.

ObamaCare Clusterfuck PR: The Bar Sank Even Lower: Video targets LGBT

"Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow [jingle bells]" morphs into "Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled [jingle bells]."

And here's the link:

It's really, really hard to make commercial christmas muzak more cloying and annoying than it already is. You might even say it'd be a very heavy lift. Yet, in shocker, Obama's PR Machine succeeds! Read below the fold...
