Well, Well, Well.

secret society of happy peopleMillions of Americans suddenly have health insurance today, thanks to the Affordable Care Act. These were plain, hard-working folk just like you and me who were previously denied coverage due to rare, untreatable conditions like asthma or acne.

And what did the Republicans do to help the process of getting Americans on board the ACA train? Lies, lies, and damned lies. Here's a list of choice whoppers, just in case you forgot.

”Obamacare will question your sex life.” – Betsy McCaughey

”No U.S.-trained doctors will accept Obamacare.” - Ann Coulter

”The IRS will keep a database of health secrets.” – Michele Bachmann

”The Affordable Care Act alters the “sensible doctor-patient-relationship-centered health care program … we see today.” – Sarah Palin

”Small businesses — 60 percent — will lose their health care, 45 percent of big business and a large percentage of individual health.” – Sean Hannity

”The insurance industry is actually run by mostly Democrats.” – Dana Perino

”Hidden language in healthcare.gov means users waive any reasonable right to privacy of your personal information.” – Joe Barton

”In 45 out of 50 states, on average men are seeing their premiums double, going up 99 percent. Women up 62 percent.” – Sean Hannity

”Local law enforcement . . . will have access to the [Obamacare] Data Hub’s treasure trove of personal info.” – Evan Feinberg

”President has given 1,100 special waivers to his friends” for Obamacare.” – Mick Mulvaney

”Virtually every person across this country has seen premiums going up and up and up” due to Obamacare.” – Ted Cruz

”UPS left 15,000 employees’ spouses “without health insurance” and told them to, “go on an exchange with no employer subsidy.” – Ted Cruz

”Under Obamacare, people who “have a doctor they’ve been seeing for the last 15 or 20 years, they won’t be able to keep going to that doctor.” – Marco Rubio

”75 percent of small businesses now say they are going to be forced to either fire workers or cut their hours.” – Marco Rubio

Obamacare isn't the best answer to America's health care needs, single-payer is, but the ACA is a baby step in the right direction.


On Monday I presented the top nine most-viewed Raging Pencils comics of 2013, something I like to call "The People's Choice". But now it's the critic's turn, I.E., me, so I'm going to present the ten Raging Pencils comics of 2013 that I found personally amusing, for reasons that will seemingly defy logic. You'll find the assortment below the fold.

As you might guess, picking just ten cartoons was a difficult job, so allow me to also offer these extra-fancy runners-up:

Pedophile's Defense, United States of North Korea, The Hush-Master 3000, How the West Was Lost, Shiva's Penis, The Bee Suicides, Not In My State, The Decider, If Romney Had Won, Whoreticulture, So Very Awfully Terribly Sorry, He's White!

Now, as for the new year, do not have a safe one. Go out and do something dangerous. Make this arbitrarily defined chunk of the temporal void something you'll never forget.
