The z news today is filled with talk about Dr. Gruber of MIT. It seems he let his mouth run away with him and let the cat out of the bag about how ObamaCare passed. The usual suspects are filled with animus but I am not. They are blaming this man for crafting a super-clever scheme to get ObamaCare passed in some sort of Orwellian deal.
The fact is though, it didn't require any Orwellianisms. ObamaCare passed in a straight up vote in which every Democrat in Congress voted for it and which every Republican in Congress voted against. It was probably one of the most partisan votes in history. It didn't take a doctor of economics from MIT to make it happen, it took voters who are really stupid.
I read a clip yesterday from elsewhere, possibly maggiesfarm, which showed a video of Harvard students trying to pass a Louisiana Literacy Exam that was maybe used by polls to have people demonstrate their literacy prior to voting. It was an interesting video for one reason only. Only people who could not show that they had passed the 5th grade were required to take it.[it is alleged]. Harvard undegrads could not complete the test but the hateful thing is that I see high school graduates every single day who do not know how to read. They have diplomas. They would not be required to take a literacy test at the polls.
They are gathering in St. Louis for a wrecking they plan to implement when the grand jury fails to indict.
The actual test is here.
What kind of 3rd world country did we become when most of the "news" has to come from the United Kingdom's press?
