Chaos as Maryland Obamacare website
has given confused insurance seekers the
toll-free number of a Seattle POTTERY
shop by mistake – for months!

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko

Maryland´s Obamacare insurance marketplace is enduring the latest of a series of public embarrassments as its website has been referring hundreds of confused shoppers to a pottery store in Seattle, more than 2,300 miles away. That has put the temperature of the latest fiery debate over the Affordable Care Act at about 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature of a kiln. [Snip] Sue Lunz, the store´s owner, told The Baltimore Sun she has been getting dozens of calls per day, and it´s been a problem since the open-enrollment period began in October.

That´s some interesting quality control the Maryland gov´t has. That wouldn´t flush in the private sector.

Everything they do turns into something bad for the people of America. There is a pattern here. While they party and live lavishly on the people´s "dime."

This is more about the destruction of insurance coverage and a cash grab by the Leviathan government. It has nothing to do with providing anything workable for America´s citizens or their health. The Socialist Left has never given a dam(n) about people or their needs and they always finish off with the "final solution."

Small overlooked problem is the pottery shop owner must pay for these calls. Our B&B had an 800 number that was one number different from one given out in TV ads for Hydrolize eye wrinkle cream. Since many of the purchasers of this product were elderly and had trouble dialing the number correctly we were inundated with calls of of which we had to pay for. One woman would not believe me when I told her she had the wrong number and kept calling back over and over asking for my supervisor. What a mess.

Afghanistan could become a future terrorist haven when the U.S. withdraws unless a larger and more expensive Afghan security force is planned, a study has warned. The report sketched a scenario in which the Taliban would seek to capitalize on the absence of foreign combat forces and press its campaign to regain political power in Kabul. ´History suggests that the Taliban will use sanctuaries in Pakistan to regenerate their capabilities as military pressure on the movement declines,´ the report said. As a first step, in 2015-16, the Taliban may put additional pressure on Afghan security forces in rural areas, expand

Unremarked, the EU is about to hold its first federal elections. The European Parliament has been quietly sucking in more power for decades, but has so far lacked the supreme attribute of a federal legislature, namely the right to appoint a federal government. [Snip] In the short clip above, the Alliance of European Conservatives and Reformists, of which I´m Secretary-General, explains why it won´t be fielding a candidate.

During the 2008 financial crisis, the US Federal Reserve struggled to grasp the scope of the problem and how to adequately respond, transcripts reveal. After a five-year wait, the central bank released the records of a total of 14 meetings from 2008. The transcripts offer the clearest insights yet into the central bank´s thinking during the crisis. "Frankly, I am decidedly confused and very muddled" said former chair Ben Bernanke during a September meeting. Overall, the documents paint a picture of the Fed that shows that it worried perhaps more than it should about inflation risks, and failed to grasp

Leading doctors have raised fears that high numbers of patients are dying while waiting for heart surgery in Wales. The Royal College of Surgeons wrote to healthcare inspectors last year warning of “grave concerns” that too many people were dying in the south of the country because of long waits for heart surgery. The letter, seen by The Daily Telegraph, calls for swift action to tackle “unacceptably high mortality” levels and highlights more than 150 cases in which patients died waiting for life-saving treatment.

New Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon was joined by the First Lady on Thursday night, as she took part in a skit and promoted her Let´s Move campaign. Michelle Obama talked about the Olympics, her first job, and how her eldest daughter Malia will soon be learning to drive. In the opening section to the show, the First Lady starred in a skit with Fallon and Anchorman star Will Ferrell, where she showed off her dance moves. She later returned, wearing an elegant black outfit, to chat to Fallon in front of the live Tonight Show studio audience. ´This is so cool,´ Mrs

Just when you thought you were safe - the Polar Vortex is back. The Midwest and North East are thawing out after being covered with more than a foot of snow over the past week, but forecasters have warned it won´t be for long as another cold front is on its way. The wintry storm is expected to slam the Midwest this weekend, bringing ferocious winds and freezing temperatures as low as 35 degrees below normal. After rattling the Midwest, it will stretch into the South and East at the start of next week, according to Weather Underground.

Ukraine protests:

Posted By: Attercliffe- 2/21/2014 6:21:30 AM     Post Reply
As Kiev burns, Western policymakers are eating ashes. Our efforts to help Ukraine towards Europe, democracy and the rule of the law have failed spectacularly. Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin is celebrating not just sporting triumph in Sochi, but geopolitical victory in the affairs of his most important neighbour. It is easy to overcomplicate the Ukraine story with historical, ethnic and geographical details. The country is often said to be split between east and west, between Russian- and Ukrainian-speakers, between those nostalgic for Soviet certainties and those who want a Western-style future. Ukraine’s business elite is divided too, between the cronies of

Hillary Clinton won´t be America´s next president, says Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, because many U.S. voters ´aren’t ready´ for a female president and don´t hunger to break new ground the way they did with Barack Obama. ´I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of [civil rights] guilt,´ the outspoken conservative told Tribune Media Services columnist Cal Thomas, in a piece that first ran February 18. ´People don’t hold guilt for a woman,´ she said, and even as Americans elect women at every other level of government, ´I don´t think there is a pent-up desire´ to

New battle lines are being drawn in the fight between gun-control advocates in Washington and Second Amendment advocacy groups, over a proposal that would mandate the ´personalization´ of every new gun sold in the United States. Sen. Edward Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, is behind a bill that would prohibit the sale of run-of-the-mill guns, requiring biometric technologies such as fingerprint recognition or a paired device--such as a wristwatch--that would authorize a gun to fire if it is nearby.

Vice President Joe Biden publicly conceded on Wednesday what many critics of the Affordable Care Act have claimed: The federal government will end the Obamacare open enrollment period far short of its goal. [Snip] The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that in order for the Obamacare system to avoid a financial ´death spiral,´ at least 7 million Americans must enroll. More importantly, the nonpartisan CBO projected that more than 2.7 million of them must be young Americans, whose limited use of health care services is expected to balance out the greater needs of older, sicker people.

Clashes have been underway since early this morning in Kiev´s Independence Square. So far, more than 21 protesters are believed to have been killed, according to a Reuters photographer who counted bodies in the square. The Telegraph´s correspondents on the ground--Roland Oliphant and David Blair--have seen ten bodies laid out on a pavement, a number of which displayed single bullet wounds to the head. Protesters believe the victims have been killed by sniper attacks. The clashes shattered a truce that Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych called with the opposition just hours earlier, following a spurt of violence that killed more than two dozen

An earthquake measuring 4.1 on the Richter scale has rocked the north Devon coast, shaking buildings and sending tremors across England and Wales. The quake, which is the largest to hit the country in six years, struck just after 1.20pm this afternoon, and shook the ground for 20 seconds. [Snip] The British Geological Survey (BGS) said residents reported their houses rocking and others have described the quake as "frightening". But others likened the quake, which originated around three miles beneath the Bristol Channel, to a "heavy truck going up the road". Tremors were felt in areas including Dartmoor, Bristol, Taunton,

First conservative icon Thomas Sowell turned on Ted Cruz, now it appears that Ann Coulter is souring on the Texas Republican as well. Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives

Singer Ted Nugent apologized on Friday for calling President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” last month. “I do apologize, not necessarily to the president, but on behalf of much better men than myself,” Nugent said in a radio interview on “The Ben Ferguson Show." The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead. The apology came just a day after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) urged Nugent to apologize for the remark. “Ted

In a watershed moment and a huge victory over environmentalists, General Electric has agreed to stop projects that are designed solely for the purpose of carbon dioxide reductions to please those who lobby for climate change concessions. The National Center for Public Policy Research, a non-partisan, free-market, independent conservative think-tank which has been fighting GE for years because of GE’s liberal bias under CEO Jeffrey Immelt, scored a huge victory after receiving the commitment from General Electric. Late in 2013, the National Center submitted a shareholder proposal as part of GE´s 2014 proxy statement and annual meeting materials. The proposal: ...request[ed] that the

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies. So it´s particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at President Barack Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans. His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

I repeat: I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier. I’ve long believed that it cannot be good for humanity to be spewing tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. I also believe that those scientists who pretend to know exactly what this will cause in 20, 30 or 50 years are white-coated propagandists. “The debate is settled,” asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. “Climate change is a fact.” Really? There is nothing more anti-scientific than the very idea that science is settled, static, impervious to challenge. Take

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take? On Saturday, a Florida jury failed to convict Michael Dunn for the callous murder of Jordan Davis. Though he was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and also on a gun charge, a mistrial was declared for the first-degree murder charge. He will face substantial jail time – perhaps up to 75 years on the four charges for which he was found guilty. Prosecutor Angela Corey has also publicly declared her intent to seek retrial on the murder conviction. However, she is the same prosecutor who oversaw the Zimmerman

Listening to pundits talk about the potential 2016 Republican field, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Rick Santorum. The former senator’s strong second-place showing in 2012 shocked—even scared—the GOP’s kingmakers, who saw in him an abortion-hating firebrand with no chance of beating Barack Obama. So it’s no surprise that today, the party’s mainstreamers are acting like he’s old news, again dismissing a Santorum presidential candidacy. Not that he cares. He’s too busy plotting another possible run at the White House. In recent months, Santorum has gathered his inner circle of longtime advisers to sketch out a presidential campaign. He’s scheduling trips to

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.

Two leading Republicans on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence say that Michael Morell, then acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, gave an account of his role on Benghazi that was often misleading and sometimes deliberately false. “I went back and reviewed some of his testimony the other day and he’s gotten himself in a real box,” says Senator Saxby Chambliss, the highest-ranking Republican on the committee. “It’s really strange.
