Google Looking To Define a Healthy Human 125

rtoz writes: Google's moonshot research division, "Google X," has started "Baseline Study," a project designed to collect anonymous genetic and molecular information from 175 people (and later thousands more) to create a complete picture of what a healthy human being should be. The blueprint will help researchers detect health problems such as heart disease and cancer far earlier, focusing medicine on prevention rather than treatment. According to Google, the information from Baseline will be anonymous, and its use will be limited to medical and health purposes. Data won't be shared with insurance companies.

    Oh wait, it's the detestable Democrats lying. How about that? What a fucking surprise! Lying Democrats? Who could believe this?

    Oh course they are trying now to say that the subsidy afforded to states to setup exchanges and withheld from those who do not was a typo. Get that? 1000s of pages and they made a typo. This of course due to a court ruling that says that those who signed up via the federal exchange cannot get subsidies because of - get this - the wording in the legislation - has to stand.

    Which of course will bankrupt Obamacare in short order. But they can't have that, so you see Democrat stooges saying things like "“I was speaking off-the-cuff. It was just a mistake. People make mistakes. Congress made a mistake drafting the law and I made a mistake talking about it,” Gruber told The New Republic’s Jonathan Cohn. “But there was never any intention to literally withhold money, to withhold tax credits, from the states that didn’t take that step. That’s clear in the intent of the law and if you talk to anybody who worked on the law. My subsequent statement was just a speak-o—you know, like a typo.”


    And here we have the same dirtbag earlier saying;

    "But I don't know that for sure. And that is really the ultimate threat, is, will people understand that, gee, if your governor doesn't set up an exchange, you're losing hundreds of millions of dollars of tax credits to be delivered to your citizens."

    Does that sound like a speak-o to you? Sounds like a two faced lying looter to me.

    You know damned well it isn't. These fucksticks are lying through their teeth.

    But hey, who gives a fuck, the law is what the preznit says it is, he is our lord and our king! He will save us from those rich evil Republicans who seek only to make all poor people sick and die.


    So who out there has even a smidgen of intellectual honesty? Lying administration. Lying cocksuckers in congress. Lying apparatchiks to the left and to the right. All designed to bring tyranny upon our land, to enslave the people and to force state run healthcare down our throats. All this for power.

    You want a law? Write it to say what you want and sell that to the people honestly and with true words. That is too much to ask?

    But we know what all you progressive assholes will say, anything to support the regime and to put those evil constitution loving bastards in their place.

    I hate you stupid fucks more and more each day.

If graphics hackers are so smart, why can't they get the bugs out of fresh paint?
