Fox
Screenshot from the #9 seed, which squares off today against the #24 seed
The 'Best' of Fox 2013 Tournament continues into the second round with a great matchup between our #9 seed (a first round winner) and the #8 seed, which received a first round bye. This is a truly a toss-up, but it is worth noting that Fox, at least, can rest easy—because over the weekend, President Obama enrolled in Obamacare.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  I'm doing much better in Round 2 (4+ / 0-)

    I picked one winner in all of Round 1 but it look like I'm 2 for 2 in Round 2. Hmm, that means I like algebra and must be a socialist!

    There are lies, damn lies, and statistics but they all pale in comparison to conservative talking points.

    What, exactly, does it mean to "sign up" for Obamacare?

    If you meet the acts requirements -- having insurance that meets the criteria in terms of out-of-pocket costs and benefits provided -- aren't you "signed up"?

    And -- can't you just buy that policy anywhere you please?

    The only "signing up" beyond that would be use of the exchanges in order to take advantage of a subsidy or, in some cases, to get a better deal.

    Things may have changed since the last time I looked, but the President makes pretty good money. Not CEO money, maybe, but well above the subsidy cap is my guess.

    There is no "signing up" he needs to do.

    and so wouldn't need to sign up for Obamacare. I'm confused.

    •  Yep (0+ / 0-)

      Obama could have insurance thru his job. And Congressional members as well. But Congress voted that they had to sign up. It was to show them as being "regular folks" I suppose. It may be that their gold plated health care policy didn't measure up to the new requirements of the law. Obama may have wanted to follow suit. Or it could be he could get a better deal.

    Fox is just a living example of the American empire self destructing. think of a world if empires did not self destruct.

    Hire pretty blonds and tell  your viewers what they  want to hear and you can make a ton of money from them. simple really that MSNBC and CNN has yet to figure out.

    Does Bolling know that you learn about radicals in second year algebra? Can I be there when they tell him?

  •  Algebra=socialism (0+ / 0-)

    wins it for me, but there is good reason to insist that the government led the way in "civilizing" the Native Americans by shooting, poisoning and displacing them to death, enterprises for which "cowboys" were only front-line soldiers in the war. Hell, it's 2013 and Washington can't even get its hometown team from calling itself the Redskins. Pile on, pile on, pile on, America, they aren't all dead yet.

    Mine, yours, mine, yours, mine... What a country! And not a penny for "ours."

    I didn't like math when I was in middle school. In fact I was terrible at it. But as the years went by I kept seeing that knowledge of how numbers work is critical in this world. I applied myself and eventually mastered not only algebra but calculus and statistics as well. Then Fox News came along.... and dumbing down became the order of the day. And measurable repeatable facts and science became something liberal. And now a poll showed, a majority of people say they don't trust scientists. I just don't understand that way of thinking, if it can be called thinking. The right extolls being light on knowledge, to run on belief, as opposed to facts. They extoll being spoon fed their information by Fox News, Limbaugh, Hannity, and O'Reilly.

    I recognize Gretchen Carlson on the left, but who is the person on the right?

      does it matter?

      Is what she says really her own thoughts or is it what goes in her ear and comes out her mouth unblemished by her own thought processes?

      I won't call her a bimbo because bimbos are really sweet and fun people and many times a bimbo is just a mask that very smart women wear to fool men.
