Obamacare Website Knowingly Launched With 40% of Payment Software Not Completed!

Only in Washington is it acceptable to launch a website, 3  years in the development, that was never properly tested, crashing multiple times with as few as 6 users prior to the October 1st launch date, with limitless privacy issues, and STILL needs the back-end of the software to be built.

 

SAY WHAT???

 

It seems that less than two weeks before the Ocare website is supposed to fully functional (AGAIN!) as promised by Team Obama, 40% of the payment software is still to be completed. Do I have to state the obvious? Well, maybe for those Ocare supporters who can’t stop drinking the Kool-Aid, I do.

 

A glitch is a small momentary or temporary happenstance. A website that isn’t fully built, is a travesty, a hoax foisted on the American people by Washington ideologues, Progressives who don’t give a damn about anything but their always failed political agendas.

 

The whole thing needs to be scrapped. The government and its slew of annoyingly arrogant bureaucrats cannot build a system of this type. It isn’t only the complexity that Obama finally acknowledged yesterday, it is the lack of real life business experience and flexibility.

 

Crats” know how to propose laws and enforce them when it suits their needs and little else.   People who couldn’t operate a lemonade stand and make a profit have NO business trying to build a healthcare system that impacts one-sixth of the nation’s economy!  Geez!

Obama’s Failed Presidency

This picture might be funny if it weren’t so tragically accurate and pathetic.

If the truth be told, I predicted that Obama would turn out to be worse than Carter…in December of 2009!

Sadly, these wasted four years were easy to predict. His so-called soaring rhetoric always left me cold.

He is so clearly an empty suit, a glib pretender whose ascendancy was aided and abetted by the MSM, many members of Congress, and the courts. This group of actors continues to cover for him and his disastrous policies.

He surrounded himself with Chicago political hacks like the Iranian born Valerie Jarrett, bullies like Rahm Emanuel, and tax cheats like Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner. Oh, and let us not forget the most corrupt Attorney General since John Mitchell, Eric Holder now in contempt of Congress for refusing to tell the truth about Fast & Furious.

He dissed the Congress and the Constitution issuing the greatest number of presidential directives and executive orders of any president in our history. His dissed our friends and allies and made friends with out enemies.

He trashed NASA’s space program so now our astronauts have to hitch a ride on Russian rockets to get to the space station the US built! In the process we also lost 7000 thousand precious jobs.

The economy is in a shambles and getting worse. The debt is close to $16 TRILLION dollars. His $800 billion stimulus was doomed to fail from the beginning, lacking direction, focus, and accountability!

He then shoved ObamaCare through the Senate with bribery, lies, and chicanery and despite the public’s universal hatred of the plan. Now officially a tax according to the Supreme Court, it remains one of the most despised pieces of legislation in our history with 60% of the public angry and against it.

Last month 163,00 thousand jobs were created. Team Obama is spinning the number like it was some great accomplishment when in fact it underscores his economic failures. In the healthy economies of the past, the country created 350,000 jobs every month!

I haven’t touched upon the unemployment rate the MSM reports at 8.3% (really 15%), or Obama’s 36 Czars (what is it that the Great Lakes Czar does exactly?), or his never ending golfing, or Michelle’s over spending, or the over regulation of everything from lemonade stands to oil fields.

Gas prices are up and US production is down while we have INCREASED our imports of foreign oil by 30%. There’s more, much, much, more. By any measure his presidency is a failure of gigantic proportions.

He has succeeded at one thing in addition to improving his golf score. He’s made Jimmy Carter look good… no easy accomplishment!

 

Maxine Waters & the Ethically Challenged Dems

Wish I could say I’m surprised, but I’m not.

Surprise, surprise, surprise …  House Democrat, Rep. Maxine Waters of California  is also facing a possible ethics trail this fall.  My oh my oh mydual ethics trials this fall just before the November elections … Walters and Charlie Rangel! The only thing I’m really surprised at is that creepy ole  Barney Frank hasn’t been indicted.

California Rep. Waters may face fall ethics trial

According to an AP story by Larry Margasak

People familiar with the investigation, who were not authorized to be quoted about charges before they are made public, say the allegations could be announced next week. The House ethics committee declined Friday to make any public statement on the matter.

Waters, 71, has been under investigation for a possible conflict of interest involving a bank that was seeking federal aid. Her husband owned stock in the bank and had served on its board.

Looks like yet another example of the rules are for “them” (you know who you are) but not for me. All that swamp draining Pelosi bragged about, as we’ve seen, was little more than words.

Ms. Pelosi is the most ethically challenged.

In addition to falsifying documents (See Democrats dodge Constitution, even in the primaries)  that alleged that Obama was a Natural Born Citizen, and eligible for the office of POTUS, the Speaker of the House has defended the indefensible here:

She protected her good friend, Pennsylvania Democrat John Murtha, who died before a raft of serious charges, including sending a defense contract to a company employing his nephew, could catch up to him. Shockingly, she tried to give Louisiana Democrat William Jefferson a seat on the Homeland Security Committee even after the release of photos of $90,000 in cash tucked inside containers of Pillsbury Pie Crust and Boca Burger in his house. He would later be convicted of 11 counts of racketeering and bribery. . . .

George Washington’s Humility vs Barack Obama’s Hubris


 

 

 

UPDATE: This was written four years ago. Little has changed, with the exception that the Mideast is in chaos, Obamacare has turned out worse than anyone predicted, and Obama’s disdain and contempt for the Constitution is more pronounced than ever. 

 

How soon we forget history… Government is not reason. Government is not eloquence. It is force. And, like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. … George Washington

 

I gave myself a present this July 4th weekend.

 

I spent the last 2 days watching the series The Revolution and the War of 1812 (the forgotten war) on the History Channel.

 

Throughout the weekend, I kept thinking about the differences between George Washington and our current Poseur President, Barack Obama.  I kept thinking about Sarah Palin’s answer to the question who was her favorite Founding Father, “all of them … ah, George Washington!”  As ineloquent, as Palin’s response was I understood her quandary.

 

In the background, I could also hear the ever-vapid Mika Brzezinski, making fun of Palin while she was telling us her favorite Founding Father was Lincoln!

 

Is it possible to think about our country’s beginnings and not think about Franklin, or Adams, Jefferson, or Madison, Hamilton, et al?  How can we rate their individual contributions?

 

They were men of bravery and vision, who took on the British, with little more than guile and a deep desire for freedom for themselves and the new country they were about to found.  They were all important; every one critical to our independence. However, if pressed, yes, like Sarah Palin, Washington is my favorite, as well.

 

It is easy to fall in love with Washington, a man of intellect and tenacity.  He possessed a kind of leadership rarely seen.  He fought the British for eight years without a navy (until the French) rarely possessing enough food, munitions, uniforms, shoes, weapons, and supplies for his men.  He was beloved by his men, enduring the same hardships they endured, never asking more of them than he asked of himself.  He was wily and clever.  He loved his country more than himself and he was genuinely humble who believed that the hand of Providence was guiding him.

 

This brings us to today and Barack Obama, a man who loves himself more than his country!  I am sorry but I feel nothing but disgust and contempt for the man.

 

He was never qualified or eligible to hold the office of POTUS.  If Obama really loved the United States of America, he would end all speculation about his eligibility for office and he would release every pertinent document that either proves or disproves his eligibility for office. 

 

He won’t, of course, because his arrogance and hubris won’t allow that he come clean.

 

Imagine hearing Washington moan, ”it’s not possible or it’s the fault of the Continental Congress we couldn’t get it done!”  On the other hand, Obama uses these excuses ad naseum!  If I hear, “it’s Bush’s fault” one more time (you get to fill the blank)!

 

[Do you] Think Washington would find it impossible to protect our borders?  Think he’d have any difficulty delegating or finding the right methods to clean up an environmental mess?  How ’bout this? Think he’d allow the government taking control of 51% of our economy or the insane deficit spending in Congress?

 

The fact is, Obama is passive-aggressive manipulator and a fraud who is little more than a good newsreader.  I can see Obama following General Granny Gates at the Battle of Camden! Both men have much in common, leading from behind, for example.


 

Democrats, Racism & Black Oppression

Put this post under “Calling it like it is!”

Yesterday we listened to the common sense of Morgan Freeman. Today I’m directing your attention to Bob Parks from Black and Right.

This is the second in a series on racism and racists.  If you think it’s the Republicans that have been holding down Black American, you’d be wrong …very wrong.

The Dem’s and Progressives like wrapping themselves in the mantle of “champions and protectors of their black brothers and sisters” but the truth is very different.

Don’t believe me, but you  might want to listen Mr. Parks  … another American that is tired of racism and trivialization foisted on adults in this country who want to live and let live and who don’t give one wit about the color of a person’s skin.



BILL MAHER SHOWS US WHAT REAL VIOLENCE IS … TREAT THOSE WHO OBJECT TO HEALTHCARE LIKE WHORES

Bill Maher:  a truly wonderful man.At one time Bill Maher was a very funny fellow, but as time has passed, he has turned into a bitter,vulgar, strident Obama pimp. No longer hip or insightful, he’s just rude and crude.

As more and more people have rejected his vision of religion (remember Religulous … a movie fewer people than the 12 Apostles saw?) and other topics near and dear to the hearts of progressives everywhere, his speech and “vision” of America have become more and more warped and radical.

In his attempts to denigrate the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Republicans, Conservatives, pro-life advocates, and any and all who show the least little bit of support for faux President Obama, he ends up making a ass of himself. He clearly hates everyone who does not share his views, some would say he hates himself, but that’s a topic for another day.

This weekend on his March 26th show he showed us what true violence is here.

One writer, when talking about Maher’s failed movie on religion said this,” his positive admonitions are lost in the maelstrom of cheap-shots, deliberate over-simplification, pontification, and the same narrow-minded claim to certainty for which Maher so angrily excoriates religious folk.”

This statement is equally applicable to his position that we “the unwashed and uneducated” need to be dragged kicking and screaming into his vision of America’s healthcare future.




SOMETIMES BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO BAD PEOPLE

File this under fools of a feather.

Both  excerpts are posted without comment because as Professor Jonathan (who cares about A2, S1, C5) Turley notes, “Res ipsa loquitur” or the thing speaks for itself.

The first is from Maggie’s NotebookHello, Al Sharpton!

Al Sharpton Organization Owes $1.5+M in Taxes: Sharptons National Action Network in Trouble?

Al Sharpton, Harlem’s racial community organizer through the National Action Network, Inc. (NAN) allegedly owes “at least” $1,556,059 in FEDERAL TAXES and $108,489 in New York taxes. (Surprise, surprise, surprise! emphasis mine)

Sharpton is an incendiary racial demagogue who is among the most polarizing figures in the nation. He boasts that he stopped Rush Limbaugh from buying a stake in an NFL team and (temporarily) ran Don Imus off the airwaves for racially insensitive marks.

He became a national figure in 1987 by participating in the Tawana Brawley case, a racially charged gang rape hoax. Sharpton falsely accused assistant prosecutor Steve Pagones of participating in the gang rape.

Crazy Grayson Accused of Campaign Finance Violation (Isn’t Karma Wonderful?)

Alan Grayson, the Human embarrassment from Florida may be in for a spot of trouble.  The Congressman who gives a good name to a bull in a china shop, made himself famous with really nasty comments about people, he said of former Vice President Dick Cheney: “I have trouble listening to what he says sometimes because of the blood that drips from his teeth while he’s talking,” he also called Fox News the enemy of America, a female adviser to the Federal Reserve chairman “a K Street whore,” and he speculated that gasoline would only cost a dollar per gallon if former President George W. Bush had let Saudi Prince Abdullah “get to second base”  All that is just a small sample of his putrid venom.

The congressman, who is often confused with Shamu the whale, may have some nastiness thrown his own way. According to CQ Politics, election regulators are investigating Grayson for botching the disclosure language on a recent fund raising appeal.

Rep. Grayson

Grayson is accused in a complaint filed Wednesday with the Federal Election Commission of breaking federal campaign finance laws earlier this week when his campaign solicited prohibited corporate campaign contributions on behalf of a Florida political candidate, Scott Maddox.

Surprise! Senior Staff who Wrote Obamacare have Exempted Themselves from Mandatory Insurance Purchases!

I can hear Gomer Pyle now …

Is  there ANYONE who can seriously say they are surprised by this?  Thought not!

The New Ledger is reporting that one only need look at page 158 to find the exemption:

[…]

(D) MEMBERS OF CONGRESS IN THE EXCHANGE-

(i) REQUIREMENT- Notwithstanding any other provision of law, after the effective date of this subtitle, the only health plans that the Federal Government may make available to Members of Congress and congressional staff with respect to their service as a Member of Congress or congressional staff shall be health plans that are–

(I) created under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act); or

(II) offered through an Exchange established under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act).

But as with a lot of legislative matters, the devil is in the details — or in this case, the definitions. (emphasis mine)  As anyone who’s worked on Capitol Hill knows, the personal office staff for a member is governed by different rules than those who work on committees and in the leadership offices.

It appears from the way this language is written that those staffers NOT in personal offices, such as those working and paid under the committee structure (such as those working for Chairman Henry Waxman) or those working on leadership staff (such as those working for Speaker Nancy Pelosi) would be exempt from these requirements.

[…]

According to the Congressional Research Service, this definition of staff will only apply to those staffers employed within a member’s “personal office” — meaning that it will absolutely not apply to committee staff members, and may not apply to leadership staff.


Al Sharpton & Alcee Hastings Slip-up & make Honest Comments about Obama & Healthcare

I guess even the best of them, slip-up and utter an honest comment or two. Take the Reverend Al who wants us to know that when American voted for Obama they voted for Socialism.  Bet ya didn’t know that, did ya?

Hat tip to law professor Jonathan “I revere the Constitution when it suits my purposes” Turley for this video.  Professor Turley, for those who don’t know is a law professor at George Washington Law School who fully supports ignoring the Natural Born Citizen clause of the Constitution opining, “If you want a pure breed, buy a dog.”

I contacted him several times  before the election and inquired how Obama could be eligible to be POTUS since he was born a British/dual citizen.  I’m still waiting for an answer … {{Bueller? Bueller?}}

Ah, what more has to be said about Alcee Hastings, except you can’t make this stuff up, can you????  Rules what rules when it comes to passing health care legislation?

This is the progressives prerogative … get it done and the Constitution be damned!  It’s just a musty ole document anyway, getting in the way of our socialist agenda.

BTW, Hastings, for those who don’t know is “a disgraced former judge who was impeached by a Democrat Congress for taking bribes.”  Nice to see how well Pelosi cleaned up the swamp!


IDAHO GOING TO COURT IF PELOSI & DEMS PASS OBAMA CARE

(H/T) Gateway Pundit

While Nancy Pelosi and her pals are deeming and ducking to find ways to pass  what may turn out to be the most hated piece of legislation in the history of our Republic, 38 states have been working to pass legislation to sue Congress should Obama Care rear its ugly head as the law of the land.

Today, Idaho just became the first state to sign such legislation into law.

The AP reported:

Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter on Wednesday became the first state chief executive to sign a measure requiring his attorney general to sue Congress if it passes health reforms that force residents to buy insurance. Similar legislation is pending in 37 other states nationwide.

Constitutional law experts say the move is mostly symbolic because federal laws supersede those of the states. But the movement reflects a growing national frustration with President President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.

Democrats are hoping to pass a version of the reform by this weekend.

Last week, Virginia legislators passed a measure similar to Idaho’s new law, but Otter was the first state chief executive to sign such a bill, according the American Legislative Exchange Council, which created model legislation for Idaho and other states. The Washington, D.C.,-based nonprofit group promotes limited government.
