New Obamacare website ´fix´ CRASHES
just as White House boasts of its success

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko

The flagship Obamacare website continued to spout error messages on Monday, hobbling a new fix that the White House bragged would avoid system crashes caused by too much Web traffic. Frustrated with news reports about crashes, delays and other online failures, the Obama administration´s ´tech surge´ team put in place an email-driven ´queuing system´ similar to the overdraft feature available with some checking accounts. [Snip] ´Can´t wait?´ the message reads. ´Leave your email with us, and we´ll send you a one-time message when HealthCare.gov is ready for you to return.´ This page, too, was prone to crash on Monday, at

As a person who spent his work career installing both the hardware and software of million-dollar computer systems, the White House is lying outright about "glitches." This is their expression to minimize the serious disaster that has befallen the actual implementation of their website.

A simple test of your mind is that an X-RAY system cannot be less than 100% working for a radiologist & staff to use it, and that´s easily obvious because of the harm it could do in the room, or the questionable image it creates. Radiation is accumulative on bodies, which is why staff wears lead aprons and a dosimeter for monthly readings. [I exceeded limits and had to explain one month for leaving it out in car when on vacation].

The point is, delivering a totally KNOWN malfunctioning equipment is criminal [not just immoral to meet contract requirements] and it should never have left their "testing area" before it was "installed" and signed off by "government."

On Fri. I ran out of k-cup hot chocolate. Sat. morning I went on ebay and ordered three boxes (excellent price). I checked my bank balance, transferred some money instantly, paid with paypal, money transferred to seller instantly, and the order was delivered Mon. morning. Well duh obama, well duh. The website is a joke and the product sucks. If this was Japan someone would be committing harry kerry (spelling???) about now.

And somewhere, Jimmy Carter laughs and laughs. A knowing laugh, like an Auburn fan after this weekend.

And just to be clear, this new programming guru Obamacared the website just like the old politically connected one did. Nice.

Usually the "Best and the Brightest" under promise and over perform. Maybe on their next, next, next try they´ll show some performance.

The jaunty slogan on the metallic green tin is meant to convey the carefree essence of childhood: “Don’t Grow Up. 7 Up.” When viewed through the lens of recent headlines, however, the phrase acquires a more sinister interpretation. According to an American study published this week, three cans of carbonated drinks contain enough calories to triple a person’s risk of developing heart disease. The suggestion is that if you spend your childhood knocking back gallons of sugary liquid, you may not get the opportunity to grow up at all.

Sandra Fluke, the contraception activist who shot from obscurity to the national spotlight in 2012 when she argued that her Catholic law school should be required to provide birth control to female students for free, is preparing to step up to a larger stage with a run for Congress in California. The newly minted ´social justice attorney´ is one of three Democrats who have petitioned the California Democratic Party for its endorsement in the 33rd District election set for nine months from now. Henry Waxman, who has served in Congress since 1975, is vacating that seat at the end of his current

Russian President Vladimir Putin has taken senior Olympics officials on a tour of a Persian leopard sanctuary ahead of the Winter Games in Sochi. He tried to calm one leopard cub, which had become agitated and attacked two journalists, Russian media said. The visit to Sochi National Park comes amid efforts to show the games are positive for the environment. President Putin is well known for his encounters with wild animals which have helped burnish his outdoors image. In the past, he has been shown on state TV tagging whales, saving a TV crew from a tiger and taking to

COLUMBIA, S.C. - A group of protesters who want South Carolina to do more to provide health care to the poor is bringing its rally inside the Statehouse. This week´s Truthful Tuesday protest will take place at 12:30 p.m. outside the governor´s office. About a half-dozen people will talk about how they have struggled to pay for health insurance or how the new federal health care law has helped them get coverage. South Carolina´s Republican dominated Legislature has been adamantly against the new health care law and refused federal money to expand Medicaid. After the rally outside the governor´s office, protesters plan

The Affordable Care Act will push the equivalent of 2.3 million full-time workers out of the U.S. labor force by the year 2021, according to a stunning report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday. The office´s latest estimates threaten to puncture the Obama administration´s argument that Obamacare won´t be a long-term job killer, since incentives built into the health care law appear to be discouraging taxpayers from working. ´CBO estimates that the ACA will reduce the total number of hours worked, on net, by about 1.5 to 2 percent during the period from 2017 to 2024,´ the CBO

Shivering can help you stay slim

It is usually a signal to reach for a jumper or turn up the heating, but it seems shivering may also be an effective way to stay slim. A new study from scientists at Sydney University has found that placing volunteers in temperatures of less than 59F (15C) for around 10-15 minutes caused hormonal changes equivalent to an hour of moderate exercise. These same hormonal changes have been linked to the creation of brown fat, a form of fat that actually burns up energy. Brown fat was once only thought to be found in babies, but scientists have since discovered that adults

Following the collapse of the Geneva peace talks on Syria, where the rival factions could not even agree on a ceasefire to allow humanitarian assistance to trapped civilians, there is one small scrap of good news from the battlefield: civil war has broken out between al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremists. Speaking from his hideout somewhere on the Afghan-Pakistan border, al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has disavowed one of the leading jihadist groups in Syria, the Islamic State of Syria and al-Sham (ISIS), claiming its wanton campaign of violence threatens to damage the al-Qaeda brand.[Snip] But the barbarous campaign waged by ISIS

For investors, February is starting off even rougher than January. U.S. stocks tumbled on Monday, pushing the Dow Jones industrial average down more than 320 points after reports of sluggish U.S growth added to investor worries about the global economy. It was the biggest one-day decline for the blue-chip index in more than seven months. And the drop followed the Dow´s worst January performance since 2009. The market stumbled from the get-go, with U.S. stocks opening lower after declines in European and Japanese indexes. Then it quickly turned into a slide as a spate of discouraging economic data on everything

Coca-Cola´s Super Bowl ad has sparked both outrage and kudos on Twitter and Facebook. The ad, entitled "America the Beautiful," features the patriotic song sung in eight languages. The ad shows people of different ethnicities. The ad also shows two dads rollerskating with their daughter. This was the first Super Bowl ad to feature a gay family, according to GLAAD, a lesbian gay, bisexual and transgender media advocacy organization. The inclusion of different languages sparked comments on Coca-Cola´s Facebook page calling the ad a disgrace and unpatriotic. "Speak English or go home," said one commenter on the page.

President Obama, outlining his push Tuesday to bring high-speed Internet access to more U.S. schools, said Americans should demand the same level of technology in learning facilities as they do in coffee shops. “In a country where we expect free Wi-Fi with our coffee, we should definitely demand it in our schools,” Obama said in Adelphi, Md., highlighting $750 million in new commitments from private companies to put digital learning labs in schools. Under his plan, the Federal Communications Commission will also spend $2 billion to connect 20 million students to wireless technologies.

The Congressional Budget Office estimated on Tuesday that the Affordable Care Act will reduce the number of full-time workers by 2.5 million over the next decade. That is mostly a good thing, a liberating result of the law. Of course, Republicans immediately tried to brand the findings as “devastating” and stark evidence of President Obama’s health care reform as a failure and a job killer. It is no such thing. (SNIP) The new law will free people, young and old, to pursue careers or retirement without having to worry about health coverage.

As the commentary around the recent deaths of Nelson Mandela, Amiri Baraka and Pete Seeger made abundantly clear, most of what Americans think they know about capitalism and communism is arrant nonsense. This is not surprising, given our country’s history of Red Scares designed to impress that anti-capitalism is tantamount to treason. In 2014, though, we are too far removed from the Cold War-era threat of thermonuclear annihilation to continue without taking stock of the hype we’ve been made, despite Harry Allen’s famous injunction, to believe. So, here are seven bogus claims people make about communism and capitalism. 1. Only

I don´t believe Woody Allen is a child molester. But when I read Dylan Farrow´s letter in The New York Times accusing her adoptive father of sexual abuse, I didn´t think she was making it up. I believe it´s a scenario she´s come to believe after it was implanted in her impressionistic head as a kid. On March 18, 1993, after a Connecticut prosecutor declined to charge Allen after a three-month investigation of the same allegations, I interviewed him at his Fifth Ave. apartment.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said the Congressional Budget Office report that shows Obamacare will make the labor force lose 2.3 million full-time workers by 2021 is positive because it lets Americans be “free agents.” “We have the CBO report, which rightfully says, that people shouldn’t have job lock. If they — we live in a country where there should be free agency.
