Tim Huelskamp Making Up Statistics on Issues that Don't Exist

Image
I sure do love those Republicans who make random nonsensical claims with no basis on reality.

Tim Huelskamp from Kansas recently "asserted that voters will side with the GOP because a whopping '90 percent' of Americans oppose the reform law’s provision that 'every single person under Obamacare' will pay a $1 abortion surcharge"

 For the conservatives, who can read this, wondering what is wrong with that statement, I will tell you. 90% of American's can't oppose that provision because that provision does not exist. He somehow magically pulled a statistic out of his ass on a provision in a bill that is not actually in the bill.

Digging for Gold and Sucking on Nose

Standing on the light-rail on my way home next to this guy.

What's great about this picture is that just before I took it the guy had his finger buried in his nose. He was picking at it so long that I had time to watch, think about it, then get my phone out to take a picture, but I wasn't quick enough. Good thing he chose to suck on the finger after to give me something to snap and blog about.
