The National Popular Vote Fallacy
In 2000, out of a total popular vote of 101,455,900, the Gore-Lieberman ticket won a narrow majority, 50,999,900 votes (50.26%) to 50,456,000 (49.74%) for Bush-Cheney.

MN State Rep Wants $329,000 Refund from Jonathan Gruber for Work With 'Beyond Laughable' Error Rates

Minnesota State Representative Greg Davids is calling for embattled MIT economics professor Jonathan Gruber, the "architect" of Obamacare, to return all $329,000 he was paid by the state of Minnesota as a subcontractor on a 2011 contract to analyze the state's plan to develop its Obamacare health care exchange, MNSure.

On November 21, Davids sent a letter to Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson requesting her to investigate Gruber's work.

"In recent weeks," Davids wrote, "significant concerns have been raised regarding the contract between the State of Minnesota and Dr. Jonathan Gruber entered into in March 2011. In light of troubling remarks by Dr. Gruber and MNsure, I believe that a review of Dr. Gruber’s work, and payments made to him, is necessary."

On December 9, Davids sent a second letter to Swanson.

"Earlier today," Davids wrote, "in testimony before Congressional investigators, Dr. Jonathan Gruber refused to answer questions regarding compensation for his work with state-based insurance exchanges. The evasiveness displayed by Dr. Gruber reinforces my concerns expressed in the previous letter."

"I implore your office to investigate Dr. Gruber’s work and its relationship to MNsure’s fiscal troubles," Davids requested again, "and urge you to explore all possible remedies for recovering the taxpayer funds wasted on his report."

"To date," Davids told Breitbart News in an exclusive statement on Wednesday, "I have received word via phone call that the Attorney General's office was working on a response, but nothing in writing yet."

Davids blasted Gruber's projections for the state of Minnesota about enrollment for the state's health care exchange, MNSure, when it launched.

"MNsure, Dr. Gruber and Governor Dayton's Administration repeatedly guaranteed that the exchange would serve 1.3 million Minnesotans by 2016, including over 600,000 in commercial plans - a financial necessity to avoid a taxpayer bailout," Davids told Breitbart News.

"Those projections were so far off that it has proved absurd," Davids said.

"Instead of 500,000 private enrollees by the end of 2015, MNsure has repeatedly lowered Dr. Gruber's projections and now estimates that fewer than 70,000 will enroll in private plans by the end of next year," Davids added.

"The error rate for Dr. Gruber's work is beyond laughable," Davids stated.

"It is a shame," Davids continued, "that nearly $600,000 in public funds was used for projections that were inaccurate from the moment MNsure opened. The Dayton Administration has essentially used over $150 million in taxpayer money to build a broken IT system for public health programs."

Davids, who has served in the Minnesota House of Representatives since 1991, is scheduled to become Chairman of the powerful House Taxes Committee in January.

"There has been little to no transparency in Dr. Gruber's work with MNsure," Davids told Breitbart News. "Given that Dr. Gruber missed the deadline to submit his final report by four months - thereby avoiding scrutiny during the legislative process that led to MNsure's creation - it is sadly unsurprising that he may have failed to live up to other aspects of his taxpayer-funded contract," Davids concluded.

A Breitbart investigation into the state of Minnesota's 2011 contract in which Gruber was paid $329,000 as a subcontractor to develop economic projections using his proprietary Gruber Microsimulation Model has uncovered a disturbing pattern of billing practices that indicate a lack of oversight. April Todd-Malmlov, the former executive director of MNSure, the state's Obamacare health exchange, was the official responsible for that oversight.

Breitbart obtained copies of the Gruber invoices, the contract,  and the Gruber subcontract in a public records request filed with the state of Minnesota.

Though the contract, which was signed by former executive director Todd-Malmlov, clearly specifies that all Gruber's invoices should be itemized in detail, the invoices submitted by Gruber and paid by the state of Minnesota were notably lacking in itemization.

Gruber's invoices do not specifically tie to deliverables specified in the contract other than to assert vaguely that some of them were delivered. The invoices do not consistently refer to the deliverables specified in the contract, nor, with the exception of the final report, do they specify the dates the deliverables were completed, to whom they were delivered in the state of Minnesota, nor whether they were formally accepted by specific bureaucrats in the state of Minnesota.

Despite these shortcomings, former executive director Todd-Malmov authorized all of Gruber's interim payments as well as his final payment.

Gruber delivered two final reports, one in 2012 and one in 2013, each about 60 pages long. Todd-Malmlov formally certified her acceptance of both these reports.

But records obtained by Breitbart News from the state of Minnesota indicate there is no auditable trail for the work product that resulted in those final reports.

In addition, Gruber's invoices do not track specifically to the deliverables identified in Exhibit B of the contract. The deliverables in that exhibit are labeled Deliverable A, Deliverable B, Deliverable C, and Deliverable D. None of Gruber's invoices refer to Deliverable A, Deliverable B, Deliverable C, or Deliverable D.

The Gruber invoice that potentially aligns with Deliverable B is cryptic at best in describing what was delivered. The Gruber invoice that potentially aligns with Deliverable C actually does not match what is specified as Deliverable C in the contract. Only the final Gruber invoice--which refers to the final report referenced in Deliverable D-- tracks with any degree of specificity to the contract.








New York to Ban Fracking; Environmentalists Cheer

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Handing environmentalists a breakthrough victory, New York plans to prohibit fracking for natural gas because of what regulators say are its unexplored health risks and dubious economic benefits.

New York, which overlies part of the gas-rich Marcellus Shale formation that has led to a drilling boom in Pennsylvania and other nearby states, has banned shale gas development since 2008, when the state began an environmental review of the drilling technique also known as hydraulic fracturing.

Wednesday's announcement, though not final, means a ban is all but etched in stone.

"Never before has a state with proven gas reserves banned fracking," said Deborah Goldberg, an attorney with Earthjustice, adding that the decision "will give courage to elected leaders throughout the country and world: Fracking is too dangerous and must not continue."

Industry and its supporters expressed outrage at the decision.

"We are very disappointed that it appears the governor is unwilling to be a leader and is going to pass the buck at the expense of New Yorkers," said Jack Gerard, president of the American Petroleum Institute.

"This technology has been used for over 65 years in the United States. It's been demonstrated repeatedly after drilling millions of wells that we're able to do it while protecting the environment and protecting the people."

Environmental Commissioner Joe Martens said Wednesday that he is recommending a ban, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, responded that he would defer to Martens and Acting Health Commissioner Howard Zucker on the decision.

The Department of Environmental Conservation will put out a final environmental impact statement early next year, Martens said, and after that he will issue an order prohibiting fracking.

About 30 anti-fracking activists cheered the decision at a rally outside Cuomo's New York City office, chanting "Thank you, Governor Cuomo, for saving our air!" and "New York banned fracking — and next, United States!"

Zucker and Martens on Wednesday summarized environmental and health reviews that concluded fracking carries risks that haven't been studied enough.

The drilling boom in the Marcellus Shale, which also runs under Ohio and West Virginia, was made possible by high-volume hydraulic fracturing, which releases gas from rock by injecting wells with chemically treated water at high pressure.

The technique has generated tens of billions of dollars in industry profits and landowner royalties, and has reduced energy bills and fuel imports. But it has also brought concerns and sparked protests over air and water pollution, earthquakes, property devaluation and truck traffic.

Zucker said he had identified "significant public health risks" and "red flag" health issues that require long-term studies before fracking can be called safe. He likened fracking to secondhand smoke, which wasn't fully understood as a health risk until many years of scientific study were done.

Martens noted the low price of natural gas, the high local cost of industry oversight, and the large areas that would be off limits to shale gas development because of setback requirements, water supply protections and local prohibitions. Those factors, he said, combine to make fracking less economically beneficial than anticipated.

Even if drilling were allowed in New York, it probably wouldn't take off any time soon because of the uncertainty around regulations and legal challenges and the huge number of promising drilling locations that remain in Pennsylvania, David Spigelmyer, president of the industry group Marcellus Shale Coalition, said last week.

The Marcellus Shale is enticing to energy companies because of its proximity to the major demand centers of New York City and New England, which is paying more for gas because of delivery constraints. But the regulatory uncertainty remains too high to commit to drilling in New York, Spigelmyer said.

In states where fracking is not yet allowed or is happening but is subject to criticism, New York's move excited some anti-drilling activists.

"The more fracking expands, the more opposition grows," said Sharon Wilson, of the group Earthworks, who has organized anti-fracking activists in Texas, California and Colorado. "Industry is its own worst enemy because they continue to deny the impacts."

Fracking supporters decried the New York move. Karen Moreau, executive director of New York's branch of the American Petroleum Institute, said the Cuomo administration is denying landowners the right to develop their mineral resources.

"The secretary of energy, the U.S. EPA administrator and President Obama recognize the benefits of fracking, and yet the Cuomo administration simply did not want to anger their activist base," Moreau said.

Dan Fitzsimmons, president of the Joint Landowners Coalition, which represents leaseholders, accused Cuomo of appeasing "environmental extremists" for political gain.

"Is our health department ignoring impacts of other energy options and suggesting that we continue with our reliance on coal and nuclear energy?" Fitzsimmons said. "Did our health department consider the health effects of poverty and unemployment?"

Cuomo said he is expecting lawsuits will be filed "every which way from Sunday."

In California, energy companies have been using a type of fracking to extract oil for many years and are pushing to expand such drilling. Environmental groups hope the New York decision will influence Gov. Jerry Brown, who has largely supported fracking. A scientific study is due to be released next month.

Californians will ask now, "If it's not safe for New Yorkers, why should we think it's safe for us?" said Charles Margulis, with the California branch of the national Center for Environmental Health, a nonprofit organization.

Goodlatte: Court's 'Unconstitutional' Executive Amnesty Opinion 'Good Sign'

The recent court opinion declaring portions of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration to be “unconstitutional” bodes well for future litigation against the president’s recent order, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte tells Breitbart News. 

Tuesday, District Court Judge Arthur Schwab ruled that aspects of Obama’s executive actions go “beyond prosecutorial discretion” to actually legislating. He made these judgments as part of an opinion dealing with a criminal case.

“President Obama’s unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution as well as the Take Care Clause, and therefore, is unconstitutional,” Schwab wrote.

In a statement to Breitbart News, Goodlatte — whose committee has jurisdiction over immigration matters — said he agreed with Schwab’s analysis and expressed optimism about future court challenges to Obama’s executive actions. 

"I agree with Judge Schwab that President Obama's unilateral rewriting of our immigration laws violates the separation of powers and the President's duty to enforce the law,” the Virginia lawmaker said. “This ruling is a good sign for the states' lawsuit challenging President Obama's unilateral, unconstitutional actions.”

Goodlatte continued, saying that when Congress returns next year it must look at all options to take on Obama’s executive actions.

“Congress will continue fighting the President's actions early next year and should consider all the tools it has at its disposal, including potential litigation. Additionally, I am hopeful that the states will be successful in their effort to stop the President's actions from being implemented.”

Goodlatte recently signed on to an amicus brief the conservative American Center for Law and Justice submitted Tuesday in support of the recent lawsuit 24 states have filed challenging Obama’s executive amnesty. 

“The President’s executive overreach on immigration must be stopped,” he stressed Tuesday in announcing his support of the brief.

Fixed: Here’s how Newsweek’s Clinton Foundation scandal story should have opened

**Written by Doug Powers

Before proceeding, first remember that “no, the media isn’t biased in favor of Hillary Clinton,” so nothing you’re about to read actually ever happened.

Newsweek has reported that the “largest individual contributor to the Clinton Foundation” was making possibly illegal deals with Iran and contravening U.S. sanctions while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.

This is the first sentence in Newsweek’s story:

Enemies of Hillary Clinton waiting to discredit her bid for the White House are likely to seize on news that one of the biggest benefactors to the Clinton Foundation has been trading with Iran and may be in breach of US sanctions imposed on the country.

That might as well begin “Gee, we really wish we didn’t have to give the GOP more legitimate ammo against Hillary, but…”

Good Will Revising: PBS helps Oscar-winning liberal actor/director edit family history

**Written by Doug Powers

If liberal actor Ben Affleck could make anything from his past disappear, you’d think he would have started with Gigli, but it turns out he went back a little further — with the help from some accommodating folks at PBS:

Ben Affleck’s ancestors apparently owned slaves — but that’s something he didn’t want the public to know.

The Academy Award-winning actor and director asked PBS executives to edit that detail out of his family tree after it was exposed during the filming of their program “Finding Your Roots,” hacked Sony emails have revealed.

In an email exchange posted by WikiLeaks, the genealogy program’s host Henry Louis Gates Jr. nervously asked a top Sony executive for “advice” in handling Affleck’s special request.

“…For the first time, one of our guests has asked us to edit out something about one of his ancestors — the fact that he owned slaves,” the Harvard scholar told Sony chief Michael Lynton in the email chain dated July 22, 2014.

Gates suggested that the censoring could tarnish their branding if word got out and would ultimately be a violation of PBS rules, “even for Batman.”

Yes, that’s Henry Gates of “Beer Summit” notoriety.

Did PBS execs grant Affleck’s request, or tell him to “Argo f*** yourself”? That’s a rhetorical question — of course his request was granted:

Sony chief Lynton, responding to his “dilemma,” advised him to bow to the star’s wishes.

“I would take it out if no one knows, but if it gets out that you are editing the material based on this kind of sensitivity then it gets tricky. Again, all things being equal I would definitely take it out,” he replied.

Anything to help a Hollywood liberal maintain his “holier than thou” sanctimony soapbox.

Most of you have heard Emma Sulkowicz. She’s the rather homely girl, shown above in her natural environment, who has made a college career of lugging a mattress about campus as a way of commenting on sexual assault on campus. You see, Sulkowicz claimed that she, herself, was raped and the Columbia University did nothing about it.

In fact, Columbia and other authorities have cleared the young man with whom Sulkowicz is obsessed several times and they have done this even in the feminist dominated world of academia and under the impossibly low standards of proof required to convict in the Star Chambers/kangaroo courts that universities use to investigate these matters. Both parties were subject to confidentiality agreements. The young man kept his end of the bargain. Sulkowicz, unsurprisingly as it has turned out, did not. Rather she began a campaign of harassment that has driven the innocent man from college, achieve heroine status for herself among the hairy-armpit feminist set, and she got college credit for doing it. Because carrying a mattress to protest something that didn’t happen qualifies as performance art, much like covering yourself in chocolate syrup and beans sprouts. For instance, slightly bonkers NY Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)Heritage ActionScorecardSen. Kirsten Gillibrand2%Senate Democrat Average29See Full Scorecard2% invited Sulkowicz to be her guest at the last Obama “State of the Nation” speech.

Via the New York Times

The lawsuit alleges that Jon Kessler, the professor who is named as a defendant, not only approved the project but also “publicly endorsed her harassment and defamation” of Mr. Nungesser.

“She is actively earning course credit from Columbia for this outrageous display of harassment and defamation,” the lawsuit says, with the school aware that “Paul’s legal rights are being violated and that his well-being and future prospects are suffering immensely.”

Ms. Sulkowicz is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit, which was filed in Federal District Court in Manhattan. The suit seeks damages in an amount to be determined at trial for what it calls the harm caused to Mr. Nungesser’s reputation, and his loss of educational opportunities and future career prospects.

Mr. Nungesser’s suit only involves Columbia so Sulkowicz will not be able to testify. And by filing the lawsuit, he is able to tell his side of the story, something he had been prevented to do while Columbia colluded with Sulkowicz to paint him as a rapist. The lawsuit is here. Read it. Some of it is gold. For instance, this is Sulkowicz in mating mode:

nungesser-complaint1And Sulkowicz gives public health advice:

nungesser-complaint2

Fake rape seems to be the sign of sisterhood these days. You have the pudgy Lena Dunham claiming that an easily identifiable Oberlin student raped her. You have the fabulist at UVa conspiring with a polemicist from Rolling Stone magazine to smear and slander a fraternity. You have the Duke Lacrosse case. This is probably only the tip of the iceberg.

Conservatively, Sulkowicz is nuts and should be institutionalized. She enlisted at least two friends of hers to also accuse Nungesser of rape and she filed a false complaint with the NYPD. Columbia grossly violated its own rules in how to handle complaints and it is probably going to be an expensive lesson to them in letting political correctness and feminist-weirdoism run amok. Unfortunately, Mr. Nungesser’s life is damaged, His academic career is probably over. He will forever be the guy this promiscuous woman accused, from the Pantheon of possibilities, of raping her.

Fascism doesn’t start in a blowsy beer hall led by a man with a ridiculous mustache. Fascism begins on the campuses of elite universities. At Johns Hopkins Universtity, it will wear pink lace panties.

At one time, probably before the nonsense of the anti-Vietnam War movement, our universities were the home of robust debate and a willingness to exchange ideas. By the time the Vietnam War was over, non-Marxist, non-progressive ideas were being shouted down in classrooms and on campuses. Now we’ve reached the point where mental deficients and moral cripples are ensuring that no member of any of their favored groups is even exposed to anything that offends them. We’ve seen that with the movement to force cancellation of the film American Sniper at U. Mich, NIU, and now University of Maryland.

The student government at Johns Hopkins University has decided to approve an advisory ban on Chick-Fil-A from locating on campus. Not that Chick-Fil-A has asked to be on campus but just in case it might, the student government decided to ban it.

Johns Hopkins University has banned Chick-fil-A from its campus saying that the restaurant is a “microaggression” against its students.

In an 18-8 vote, the Student Government Association at Johns Hopkins voted not to “support the proposal of a Chick-fil-A, in a current or future sense, particularly on any location that is central to student life.”

Why? For a reason only the truly addled could understand:

micro
Micro-freakin-aggressions. Apparently sexual deviance makes one so mentally unstable that the mere site of a Chick-Fil-A would create an unwholesome and threatening environment for the special snowflakes who are now attempting to drive businessmen and women who disagree with them into bankruptcy. Apparently millenia of human experience count for nothing besides some pet minority suffering hurty pants.

Viewed in the most favorable light, this is simply bullying of the most juvenile sort. It is a student government by a rich, priveleged, mostly white middle school mean-girls-clique. Unfortunately, the same proud little fascists who participated in this assault on civil society will carry their same noxious opinions into the work force and harm large numbers of real people. So it is only fair that we give them the recognition they crave:

Over the past couple of days, we here at RedState have talked quite a bit about Hillary Clinton’s backroom deals with nuclear industry bigwigs that have essentially handed our country’s uranium supplies over to Russia. However, the story doesn’t end with the Clintons’ own backroom dealing and subsequent lying about it. Now, we can add “blatant hypocrisy” to the list. The Washington Free Beacon has again done some invaluable work sleuthing around and found this clip of Hillary Clinton hitting then candidate Barack Obama for his backroom nuclear dealing during the 2008 campaign:

“Senator Obama has some questions to answer about his dealings with one of his largest contributors, Exelon, a big nuclear power company,” Clinton said in February 2008. “Apparently he cut some deals behind closed doors to protect them from full disclosure in the nuclear industry.”

As the WFB explains, then-Senator Clinton was correct in her suspicions about Obama’s backroom dealing, as top executives from Exelon were among the Obama campaign’s early supporters. Still, what she is accused of is even worse. The deal Obama cut during his time as a Senator might have allowed Exelon to avoid some disclosure rules, but that deal was not responsible for placing our uranium supplies in the hands of the Russians, which is what the Clintons facilitated.

However, what is interesting is that the question Hillary Clinton was being asked in that interview in 2008 was about her transparency issues. Unsurprisingly, she’s dealing with essentially the same kind of questions today. It turns out that old habits die hard, I suppose.

This is hardly the first time a Clinton has been accused of hypocrisy. In the past, they have been largely able to avoid the kind of fallout from those attacks. At the moment, though, it looks like they’re having trouble getting through this round of criticism unscathed. Still, barring a colossal collapse that not even the media can prevent (which could possibly happen), you can expect the media to circle the wagons around her once she’s the nominee and and it becomes a question of Republican or Democrat in the White House.

The LGBT-Gestapo adapts rather quickly.  After Memories Pizza raised $842,432 in just a few days, and Arlene’s Flowers raised over $173 thousand on GoFundMe, the Gaystapo couldn’t let Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of the now-shuttered Sweet Cakes by Melissa, use that fundraising platform.

A GoFundMe account was established for the Kleins, and raised over $6,000, until the website took it down.

The website GoFundMe said in a statement Saturday that it took down the page because the campaign violated the policy against raising money “in defense of formal charges of heinous crimes, including violent, hateful, or sexual acts.”

“The campaign entitled ‘Sweet Cakes by Melissa‘ involves formal charges. As such, our team has determined that it was in violation of GoFundMe’s Terms & Conditions,” said GoFundMe in an email statement.

“The money raised thus far will still be made available for withdrawal,” said GoFundMe.

An administrative judge ordered the Kleins to pay $135,000 for violating a 2007 Oregon law protecting “the rights of gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people in employment, housing and public accommodations,” according to The Washington Times.  The law provides an exemption for religious organizations but does not allow private businesses to discriminate based on sexual orientation.

And we wonder why gay activists go apoplectic over Indiana’s RFRA law, which would protect business owners against this kind of rank persecution—well, it would have, if they hadn’t gutted it.

Samaritan’s Purse, Rev. Franklin Graham’s Christian humanitarian organization, stepped in to help the Kleins raise money.

Stripped of their livelihood and facing financial ruin, the Kleins are being denied funding as if they were guilty of murder or hate crimes.  All they did was decline to bake cupcakes for a lesbian wedding.  To the Gaystapo, being a Christian is reason enough to be made to live in a cave.

Apparently GoFundMe has no problem raising money for legal funds, as long as it’s not for Christians.  Aldo Alvarez was charged with burglary with assault and battery on a law enforcement officer after allegedly attacking Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy Joshua McGehee.  McGeheee shot Alvarez, and GoFundMe hasn’t taken down Alvarez’s account.

Neither have they taken down the hundreds of legal defense fund accounts, many of the beneficiaries of which face “formal charges of heinous crimes, including violent, hateful, or sexual acts.”

Nope, only the Kleins, who are accused of violating the Gaystapo’s “made to care” rules, have been stripped of their GoFundMe account.

The real agenda isn’t about cakes or “marriage equality.”  It’s about politics and an agenda of control.  Even gays can’t escape the agenda’s grasp:  Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass, openly gay businessmen, are being boycotted simply because they hosted a party for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)Heritage ActionScorecardSen. Ted Cruz95%Senate Republican Average29See Full Scorecard95%, with whom they share a support for Israel (a haven for gays in a region where homosexual beheadings are real things, BTW).

On the “Boycott Fire Island Pines Establishment & Out NYC Hotel” Facebook page, one commenter summed it up pretty well.

The focus since Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass invited Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)Heritage ActionScorecardSen. Ted Cruz95%Senate Republican Average29See Full Scorecard95% into their home has been on Cruz’s opposition to marriage equality. But Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)Heritage ActionScorecardSen. Ted Cruz95%Senate Republican Average29See Full Scorecard95% stands opposed to nearly everything I care about. He opposes even the most basic civil rights protections for LGBT people. While he said he’d love a lesbian daughter (in theory), he’d treat her as a second class citizen and would not respect her fundamental humanity. In addition to being anti-gay, he’s also anti-choice, anti-immigrant, and he subscribes to a fundamentalist Biblical world view. He’s a theocrat. He denies climate change. The NRA gave him an A+ on their scorecard. He’s made outrageously false statements about President Obama, including calling him “an apologist for radical Islamic terrorists.” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)Heritage ActionScorecardSen. Ted Cruz95%Senate Republican Average29See Full Scorecard95% is a right-wing fanatic of frightening proportions. Lending ANY kind of support or legitimacy to his candidacy for president is, in my book, unconscionable.

The Gaystapo takes no prisoners, brooks no dissent, and offers no mercy.  All in the name of “tolerance.”

Everybody will be made to care.

Obama has "a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture."
Glenn Beck

What should we do with Obama the racist?
"In Obama's America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering, 'Yay, right on, right on, right on, right on,'
We need segregated buses. This is Obamas America."
Rush Limbaugh

What should we do with Obama the racist?


Where is Dick when we need him?

For the woman in your life, get her something that says what should happen to Obama.

Cook him good...
