Patience, Obamacare will work
CNN, by Sally Kohn

You know what´s relatively easy? Fixing a website. You know what´s really hard? Ensuring access to affordable, quality health insurance for every single American and improving our broken health care system in the process. In the back-and-forth about the Obamacare exchange websites, let´s not lose sight of the ultimate goal of health care reform -- a goal that, even with the exchanges problems, we are steadily achieving. Less than 17 days into the signup period, the State of Oregon had already enrolled 56,000 people under the Medicaid expansion in Obamacare -- and reduced the state´s percentage of uninsured by 10%. In

Ahh yes, the insufferable, brainwashed leftist Kohn rears her ugly head. At least she hasn´t been on Fox lately. I can´t even look at her. She states: "three years ago, our health care costs were skyrocketing, tens of millions of Americans lacked health insurance and 14,000 more were losing their coverage every day" and is thankful we have a law that fixed that??? I guess she´s been under a rock and hasn´t seen the exorbitant rise in costs and hundreds of thousands in cancellations. What an idiot.

Web sites can be fixed. Stupidity can´t. Once The Unaffordable No HealthKKKare Edict from ØDumbø is shoved down our throats, next up is illegal immigrants so the demoncraps can never lose another election, universal college education so libs can pollute the minds of the yuths, and the requirement that the Constitution be replaced with Sharia Law. Hope there´s enough stone left on Mount Rushmore for Zippy´s Ears and Teleprompter One.

Whenever I see her face I change the channel or at least mute the tv. She is not only stupid when she talks she is stupid in print too. The only benefit I have seen is losing my ins. and finding out obamacare premiums and deductibles are much higher. But, damn, I´m 62 and I will be loving those birth control and ob benefits. And the rehab benefits I get to pay for even though I don´t drink or do drugs. How silly of me to think I should be able to pick what is important to my own health. Yeah, sally, it´s a sweet ride. I will not sign up for this barf I think a lot of people will be with me. What a doofus.

How many are pregnant? How many will have heart attacks or strokes? How many will have a child get injured and need medical attention? Their insurance coverage is gone.

I believe she´s correct.

ObamaScare WILL work the way it´s designed to - to track our every move, our every meal, our BMI, all our prescriptions (what, how many and how often), and be right there with us next time we´re in the doctor´s exam room.

Additionally, when we file our 1040´s, it´ll be right there again, disguised as the IRS, siphoning our money of our account to pay for itself.

I miss America. But, like Glenn Beck said this morning, try not to look at this as the end of America..... it really just could be the beginning of a REBORN America....

I´m holding on to that.

At least with Kirsten Powers you know that there is an analytical brain which will decide which side she takes depending on the facts ... you may not agree with her but at least there is reasonable logic driving her opinions most of the time.
With the drone Sally Kohn, talking points are hard-wired into her skull, and she NEVER deviates from knee-JERK defense of the indefensible. Kohn is the stereotypic Stepford liberal, ready to CRUSH freedom "for the greater good" of a utopian dream the likes of which has sacrificed millions of lives for an elite which knows what´s best for us, and will not be denied of their control.

I think there are two problems that the fed healthcare Web site faces.

The first is that the site is making way too many remote procedure calls (RPC). The Internet is comprised of many computers all connected, and what appears on a single Web page and what happens to data entered into a form can actually use many different computers "under the covers". When a Web site brings in or sends out data to a remote other server, that´s what we call a RPC.

I´m sure that the site is sending data to a bunch of legacy federal computer systems, like to HHS, IRS, NSA, etc. Those systems do what they do and are not going to change very quickly, if at all. This is why simply adding more computing resources to the healthcare site itself will not produce a quick and easy fix. The problem is that the interaction with those remote other sites takes a lot of time, and there are enough to choke the throughput of the overall system.

The second problem is that there has been and continues to be dramatic "feature creep". This would include requirements that aren´t even defined yet, leaving the system woefully inappropriate for whatever is intended. This is usually caused by too many chefs, especially chefs who are computer fools with great initiative.

Fixing a website is easy? Obviously Sally knows nothing about IT. They tried to squeeze 5 years of development into 2 years, without anyone knowing the specifics about what they were developing. I´d be surprised if the website is running as it should by this time next year.

The author is a liberal community organizer like BO and just as delusional. She knows nothing about the technical challenges for THIS website and yet claims a bunch of college kids hyped up on caffeine will fix it up in a jiffy. On the other hand we have respected developers in the IT world saying the site is horribly designed and badly broken. Who do you think we should believe.

To a liberal, the end goal is everything. They want universal and government paid healthcare. This brief stop that uses private insurers will be swept away before too long. So ANYTHING that happens along the way to that goal is OK. They are reaching for the brass ring and it doesn´t matter that the merry-go-round is on fire.

She also quotes other liberals that know as little about the real situation as Sally does about IT development. No fact checks and soon will be proven completely false but Sally will be on to other people to quote their drivel. You just keep on moving to the next lie because you are heading for that shiny ring.

Meanwhile the rest of us get screwed.

Fox News’s ‘Outnumbered’
is a stroke of evil genius
Washington Post, by Alyssa Rosenberg     Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 4:43:34 PM     Post Reply
I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

“We should be afraid of sharia law” in America, and Muslims here who want to practice sharia should go back to where they came from, “to those nations that recognize sharia law,” said Rev. Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. In a recent interview with the Charlotte Observer, Graham was asked, “Some say you demonize Islam, and Christians in this country have opposed building a mosque or are worried about Sharia law.

The number of Americans who signed up for private insurance in the marketplace has grown to 8 million, President Barack Obama said Thursday during a rare appearance at the daily White House news conference, where he talked about the Affordable Care Act. About 35% of the people of those who have signed up through the federal marketplace are younger than 35, he added.

A New, More Sinister IRS Scandal
PJ Media, by J. Christian Adams    Original Article

Yesterday was a significant day in the IRS abuse scandal. The scandal evolved from being about pesky delays in IRS exemption applications to a government conniving with outside interests to put political opponents in prison. Emails obtained by Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act reveal Lois Lerner cooking up plans with Justice Department officials to talk about ways to criminally charge conservative groups that are insufficiently quiet. Larry Noble, a law professor now with the Soros-funded Campaign Legal Center, was cited in the emails as someone agitating to jail conservatives who “falsely” report on IRS forms that they

Atheist Group Sues Clemson Football

Clemson accused of trying to integrate religion and football Coach Dabo Swinney and his Clemson football program face a blitz again. This time it´s not South Carolina´s Jadeveon Clowney seeking to slam their quarterback into the turf, or even a lighthearted sound-byte from Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier aiming to bringing them down a notch. Instead, it´s an oddly dour out-of-state assault in the form of a complaint filed against the football program by the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), an atheist rights group from Wisconsin. The FFRF claims that Swinney´s program is "entangled" and "entrenched" in religion. Prayers and Bible studies instituted

JAY CARNEY: I remember we had some discussion during 2012 about well, is it appropriate for the president, the sitting president and candidate, to give interviews with Jon Stewart and others. And the answer was yes, again because the young voters we were trying to reach are more likely to watch The Daily Show than some other news shows. But also, I think if you look back at 2012 and the series of interviews the sitting president of the United States gave, probably the toughest interview he had was with Jon Stewart. Probably the most substantive, challenging interview Barack Obama

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
