Harry Reid: People Aren’t Educated
on How to Use the Internet

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/26/2014 4:12:52 PM

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Harry, six-year olds know how to use the internet.

Maybe not the kids in your family, but most of other people´s kids know how.

Way way before computers ever arrived on the scene, we were applying and signing up for insurance... for health, for auto, for home or rental.

We went to an agent who listed what we needed and wanted and what we could afford. Just so.

I do not know how any "sane" (of course, there´s the rub) person could have created this monstroous Deplorable Care(less) Act.

Right now, there are people struggling with serious health issues and on top of this, diminished coverage, and/or anxiety over what´s covered and not, how much all will cost, and whether or not they can continue the monster.

The fact is the aides decide how the critters will vote especially after they reach senality.
The voters must join in effort to remove these critters from our House and Senate. and elect people with honor and the ability to leave after their terms are finished.

I guess I´m suffering from cognitive dissonance. For months now zippy has been the insurance-salesman-in-chief flogging the young invincibles to sign up. The same voter demographic that supposedly put zero in office due to their social media savvy, and now we´re told they´re not educated on the use of the internet.

Even a rookie motivational speaker knows not to insult the audience. I thought the go-to excuse this week was the Koch brothers. Hairy Red must be free-lancing.

Typical liberal arrogance on display, by Sycophant Harry Reed.. self styled Jack of all trades himself, yet master of none.

Libtards like Reed have an excuse for every one of their own failings. The problem is that for every excuse one makes for failure, several more failures will develop as a result.

In a private world where action has consequences; Failure + Excuses = Termination of Employment.

Hoary Reid, obama and the rest of the donks ever in search of the lowest common denominator. E.G. Some folks aren´t educated on how to use the internet, so let´s use that as our standard. Coincidentally, the dumber the voter, the more easily they can be bamboozled by Dems. So the Dems love them some LoFo´s, big time. The only thing they love more are NoFo´s. And the educated Leftist elites --- a minority of their party --- abide, even promote, this kind of voter fraud, driven as they are by elite guilt and their bankrupt, historically discredited ideology. A party beyond disgusting.

So how much money was spent on the alleged "navigators" and telephone call centers for these poor, uneducated people to utilize? I guess the true role of a ´navigatort´ is to sign more people up to vote, who would otherwise be ineligible to vote.

Absolute proof, once again, that the lordly PRESS has a mighty bias: they go on and on about Republicans being the party of no, yet say nothing about Reid killing every bill sent up once it reaches the Senate; they say virtually nothing about Reid´s more preposterous claims (Romney paid no taxes, etc.) and never say a word when the claims are refuted; they are largely silent about how a man with zero $ has become a multimillionaire in office, with a whole family involved pushing bills and fulfilling gift lists with campaign $ and now they will say nothing about Reid´s views of the one group that definitely votes, lest they take offense. How the Press, in general, think they are valued is beyond me. How the B. Williams´ of this world can walk with heads held high is a joke.

Isn´t this just so typical of the Left/Dems? Supposedly the party of the little guy. Mark Levin last night wsa playing a ten year old recording of the (former?) Governor of Colorado, Richard Lamm, I believe, talking about his plans to destroy this country; this smug, arrogant country. One of his eight tenets was to encourage immigration of Mexican peasants and keep them uneducated so they would continue to vote for whom they are told to vote. But Republicans is the party that hates people of color...

Harry Reid is a bold-faced LIAR.

He lied about Mitt Romney not paying taxes during the last campaign; he lied when he said people who´s health is jeopardized by Obamacare, and he´s lying now.

This isn´t even the big story -- he´s having to pay his campaign over 30,000 dollars after his campaign bought various gifts from -- get this -- his granddaughter´s company! He was caught red-handed by a journalist in Nevada. Blatant campaign finance violations -- how will he lie his way out of that?

We must remember folk that Reid is the same brainless cretin who said that tourist in the Capitol building were "smelly". Harry you old fool my young children know how to use the internet probably better than the dopes on your staff. To bad (for you) that you´re nothing but a lying crook. You lied about your land deals you profited from while in office. You lied about spending government funds to get gifts from you dopey granddaughter´s company. You lied about Mitt Romney and his taxes and you lied about Obamascare. BTW Dirty Harry you must have been talking about the typically brain dead liberal voter in your assessment of internet usage.

If Dingy Harry is so smart to know that the masses who need zerocare are computer illiterate, how come he and Piglosi don´t blame zero for using the internet as the primary method to sign-up?

Gieco commercial:

MSM Reporter: "Did you know you can save 15% on car insurance in 15 minutes?"

Man in the street: "Everyone knows that."

MSM Reporter: "But did you know that Harry Ried can tell outright lies on the Senate floor without a single Democrat batting an eye?"

Jump to video of Dingy: "Mitt Romney doesn´t pay his taxes ... the mean Republicans are shutting down the government ... the Koch brothers are corrupting politics with their money ... People aren´t educated on how to use the internet..."

Why do they get away with it? Because their voters never tune into any media outlet that would challenge their lies.

Most of the established politicians are still using a 1950s play book. They have felt free to say anything, because they could deny or evade anything, and a corrupt press could just tear up any evidence to accommodate . But now crowds have hundreds of cameras with mikes and
even Hillary might have problems with. "I don´t recall." If the younger conservatives can get elected we can blow these pathetic "reach across the aisle" duds out of town.

Former national deputy chief of the U.S. Border Patrol Ronald Colburn tells National Review Online that the Obama administration has undone all of the progress made at America’s southern border since 9/11. “We’re back to a pre-9/11 situation basically, and this administration did that in the past five years,” he says. “All of the good that was done after 9/11 up to now has been reversed singlehandedly.” Colburn, who spent more than 30 years working for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, says the resulting national-security risk has to do with the “clutter” of people at the border.

JACKSON, Miss. —Representatives for Chris McDaniel´s U.S. Senate campaign said Wednesday that they continue to examine election materials, but have not yet filed an official election challenge. McDaniel lost to six-term U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran by more than 7,600 votes in the June 24 Republican runoff election. McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said enough evidence has already been found to challenge the election. He said an official challenge will be filed within the next 10 days.

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has secretly notified Congress that the military intends to transfer six low-level Guantánamo Bay detainees to Uruguay as early as next month, according to people with knowledge of the communication. All six have been approved for transfer for more than four years. Mr. Hagel’s formal determination that the transfer would be in the national security interest of the United States breaks a bureaucratic paralysis over a deal that has been waiting for his approval since March, but stalled amid the political uproar over a prisoner exchange deal that secured the release of Sgt.

PASCAGOULA, Mississippi -- Jackson County Circuit Court Judge Robert Krebs ordered Jackson County Circuit Clerk Joe Martin to allow Chris McDaniel campaign supporters access to poll books from the June 3 and June 24 Republican U.S. Senate elections during an writ of mandamus emergency hearing this morning. State Sen. Michael Watson of Pascagoula argued the case for McDaniel, one of his close friends and political allies.

Cochran finished with a 7,667-vote margin of victory, according to official results.

If the Palestinians are merely engaged in a nationalist struggle for self-determination, then why are they inciting genocide of Jewry? In the midst of Operation Protective Edge, Hamas released a music video in Hebrew calling for the Palestinians to bomb Israel and kill all Israelis. “Raze it [Israel] to the ground, exterminate the cockroaches’ nest, and banish all the Zionists,” the lyrics read. Some human rights activists and lawyers may get a sense of déjà vu upon reading these words. Back in 1994, there were several radio broadcasts calling for the extermination of human cockroaches. They were in Rwanda. When the Hutus began their

TOPEKA, Kan. — Democratic challenger Paul Davis sought Tuesday to give his campaign for Kansas governor a bipartisan boost by announcing endorsements from more than 100 moderate Republicans who´ve split with conservative GOP Gov. Sam Brownback over education and tax policy. The disaffected Republicans include outgoing Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger, three former Kansas Senate presidents and three former Kansas House speakers. More than half are former legislators, and the list includes former U.S. Rep. Jan Meyers, who represented the Kansas City-area 3rd District from 1985 to 1997. They announced that they formed Republicans for Kansas Values because of their concerns about the

The headline from AP certainly is alarming: “100 Kansas GOP endorse Democrat for governor.” And the lead paragraph continues the theme: Democratic challenger Paul Davis sought Tuesday to give his campaign for Kansas governor a bipartisan boost by announcing endorsements from more than 100 moderate Republicans who´ve split with conservative GOP Gov. Sam Brownback over education and tax policy. You might be wondering, to borrow Thomas Frank’s infamous book title, “What’s the matter with Kansas”? I can’t claim to be an expert on the Jayhawker State, but it does appear that this is a matter of sour grapes: Six state senators on

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
