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.

Flexian Looting Report: DeBlasio is Bloomberg After All

"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...

ObamaCare Clusterfuck Advertising: A New Low: "Pajama Boy"

Is there a word in the English language for "beyond desperate," other than pathetic?

If this is what an American Young Invincible looks like, yikes. I don't think he would have made the cut to join the Army of Sparta. Read below the fold...

Obama Won't Commit to Safe Drinking Water for All

The US is the holdout gumming up the works on the passage of a UN Resolution to enshrine "The human right to safe drinking water and sanitation."

All UN members have agreed that this basic right derives from the right to an adequate standard of living.

Except the United States of America, currently headed by Obama. Read below the fold...

Call for Help to Correntian Techies

Something very strange happened today. There was a "notification" on my iCalendar (in my MacBookPro). It nested like a "to do" item on my iCal and it was from an "Omar" saying to "contact me." This is like spam we get in email but it somehow pushed into my iCal.

Anybody know how to shut off such intrusions, or whether this event means my whole drive has been invaded and sucked into the spy-o-sphere or whether I need to do something like a clean up operation to fix whatever has happened? Read below the fold...

FIRE's Profitable Complexity -- ObamaCare and Derivatives

From "Derivatives are Weapons of Slow Economic Destruction," by Mark Gongloff, via HuffPo, recapping well how the complexity of derivatives is a feature not a bug crucial to how the derivatives sell-side (mainly, 5 banks) has been (and continues to be) incredibly successful at turning the buy-side (pension funds, mutual funds, municipalities) into highly-profitable vehicles of rent extraction. How do you get a buy-side dupe to take a derivative-loan with a fee 10 times higher than a regular loan? Make it complicated! Read below the fold...
