Obamacare Website Goes
Offline for Repairs Again

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/7/2013 9:55:42 PM

After a long weekend of repairs, the Obamacare healthcare exchange website was ready for action…or not. On Monday night, Healthcare.gov was taken offline again to fix glitches. From 1 a.m. EDT, the Health and Human Services Department stated, the site would be offline for purposes of improving capacity. HHS did state that the site was better than it was before the weekend improvements, and said that it would be taken offline only during nonpeak hours. HHS spokeswoman Joanne Peters said, “The work done to increase access to HealthCare.gov in light of the overwhelming demand is

You have to give these folks credit for persistence, sticking with the totally phony message that it is overwhelming demand that is the problem.

The real problem. Incompetent liberal bureaucrats, not knowing what was in the bill, and trying to keep up to date with arbitrary changes, kept screwing around with the software requirements such that no programmer could have ever produced a workable product.

The developers of this web app have already said publicly that these issues are not because of demand. This was right before they were ordered not to speak to reporters. And these lying, incompetent jackasses in the HHS will be making healthcare decisions for us. The only group who really really deserve a waiver from this epic disaster are those of us who did not vote for these idiots.

I think it´s hilarious that Obama and his crew refuse to release sign-up figures. These systems produce transaction logs which are accessible as raw data or via report generators that process the data and produce all manner of reports and graphs. I´ve built a number of these systems, and once they go live, the engineers and the exec´s demand first hour, first day, etc. reports. It´s like TV show producers looking at the ratings ASAP. So for the administration to play dumb about this data is, again, hilarious, and a pack of lies. They know the exact numbers and those numbers are terrible, else the braggart of bin Laden´s raid would be all over the airwaves, ad nauseam, bragging about the big sign up numbers. Oh, how they wish they had even a shred of good numbers to promote. But they don´t and so they lie. Like dogs.

I´ve been in the computer business a long time. The very extensive nature of the problems cited indicates that the basic design of this system may be fatally flawed. A complete rewrite may be required. If so, we´re not talking a few days or even weeks. The whole system may be unavailable for a year or more.

What poetic justice. They purposely made the law incredibly complex and virtually unreadable, so the end result is a system that´s also unprogrammable.

Like communism, a massive FAIL.

In any crisis, there is opportunity This Obamacide website is the opportunity of a lifetime for questioning, contrary opinion Breitbartian Americans. Breitbartian good guy, bestelling author, Ben Shapiro (PRIMETIME PROPAGANDA) omits the one, giant, positive point we can celebrate now, and as long as this most frightening Communist plan remains in effect. For the first time, a complicated, bad law, a truly horrendous law, is starting by going online. We have a nation packed with innovative genius computer users and programmers, packed with lawyers and law students, packed with Tea Party patriots, bikers, truck drivers. We have a nation of individualists who can all look at this foul totalitarian, IRS police state enforced terrorism, who can set up analysis never before aimed at any new law. It is no longer that “cat and mouse” game of the IRS, where the laws are so confusing that the average family must hire a government trained CPA. Obamacide, all of it online, is a whole new, different ballgame. It’s time demanding, to be sure, but questioning this oppressive debut of body and mind tyranny, can become a perfect join together speaking platform for law abiding, talented, hard working, patriotic Americans !

Next up, Obama will take over automobile manufacturers. He´ll appoint a ´Car Czar´ and we´ll be forced to buy whatever is produced.

Will they run? Of course not. But they´ll be shiny, and you WILL like them. When they don´t run, Obama will blame Republicans.

In order to finance the whole scheme, gas prices will have a floor price of $9.50/gallon, starting today.

It´ll be glorious. Those that do not think so, report yourself now to the IRS.

And there is a saying in the computer programming business: GIGO --- Garbage in, garbage out. The mere fact that they knew this was coming for 3 years and are this unprepared just shows what a nightmare this will be once implemented. And this is only for those who WANT to sign up for Obamacare! Imagine the knots we will all be in once it kicks in at our local hospital, medical clinic and/or doctor´s office. It will be the post office, motor vehicle and jury duty all rolled into one.

We are all in a small row boat and the roar of the falls is getting louder!

At this moment in time, there is no way to forsee what is going to happen to healthcare in this country. We all DO know that under Obozocare, it will collapse. But, if enough people refuse to sign up for the program, and so far it looks like that just might happen, then Obozocare itself will collapse. And then where are we? There needs to be someone or some organization to put togather a program based on the free market that will be ready to go just in case of a collapse, regardless of the cause. At least that´s my opinion.

And I guess I´m part of their stats. I did log on their web site and took a look around. And I have no intention of EVER "joining" their program. Or paying their "tax".

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
