Meek citizens, reduced expectations
The sad tale of Jessica Sanford is sadly instructive, as well as a monumental P.R. disaster for the White House. The story seems to have pushed some normally Obama-supporting media spinmasters over the edge, notably CNN, which is covering the fiasco in minute detail, including regular updates on its website. Or are they trying to set Sanford up as a damsel in distress that Obama | Read More »
The Worst Thing about the Census Bureau, Unemployment Rate Conspiracy Theory
Boy! The pollsters sure taught Barack Obama a thing or two! If the election happened tomorrow, do you know who would beat him like a rented farmer’s mule? Mitt Romney! Of course, there’s a catch. The election was a year ago, and Mitt was the mutt that just didn’t quite have the sniff when it counted. Could this be the sign that the Progressives are finally on the way down from their hubris-laden perches of power and influence? It could be, but I have my skeptical doubts.
Yesterday we learned shocking news. Over 100 million Americans have signed up at healthcare.gov! Gappedo couldn’t build enough Pinocchios to rate this on the Washington Post lie scale, so we’re calling it a gaffe. It also comes on the heels of a less amusing foray into the domain of amateur male bovine scatology. It seems the US Census Bureau’s September 2012 Unemployment Report may have been a foray into the magical world of statistical engineering. The NY Post tells us the following:

Gettysburg, JFK, Camelot and Democrats’ Camel-nots
On today’s sesquicentennial of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and before Friday’s 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK, Americans see their respective legacies betrayed by (mostly northern) liberal Democrats waging war against what Camelot’s Arthur and our Founding Fathers stood for. Thanks to the courage and vision of President Abraham Lincoln and the Union troops that responded to his call to arms, the last best hope | Read More »
Jessica Sanford, one of @BarackObama’s #obamacare ‘success stories,’ will have no insurance.
Oh dear God but the Democrats have not done right by this woman. OLYMPIA, Nov. 17.—Jessica Sanford, the Federal Way woman who got a shout-out from President Obama last month with her fan letter for the Affordable Care Act, got a rather rude awakening last week. Turns out she doesn’t qualify for a tax credit after all. At least that’s what the letter said that | Read More »
Healthcare.gov site advertising SQL injection attacks
Via Alex Hern on Twitter, we find that the Obamacare website has attempted website attacks in its search box, automatically prompted for you if you type or mistype the right letters or punctuation.
This tells us a few things: there is a lack of polish in the Healthcare.gov website, there are many people who want to break into the website, and there isn’t much confidence in the security of the website. All of these things should be troubling to people with data in that system.

Why are people surprised that @barackobama has no conception of good staffing? #obamacare
Bolding mine, but the last line probably is the most relevant question that can be asked about the current administration: There is nothing that any president needs more than a team of competent people around him who can keep him and his key initiatives on track. President Obama is in his fifth year in office, and he isn’t getting the level of performance from his | Read More »
Gettysburg Address@150 and the War of Northern Aggression
Mostly northern liberal Democrat aggression over the last century, that is. Tuesday will mark the sesquicentennial of President Abraham Lincoln’s address at the dedication of a cemetery on a portion of the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania battlefield for the fallen where Union forces had won what turned out to be (along with the Battle of Atlanta still eight months away) the most pivotal battle of the Civil | Read More »
Of Startups and Meltdowns… Free Market Success vs. Government Failure
I’m an entrepreneur.I’m constantly full of ideas and trying to get businesses started. As I seek to launch my newest endeavor, BrandScanned, I’m trying to get myself involved in the Atlanta startup community. As such, last weekend I had something of a startup adventure. I participated in Startup Weekend at Georgia Tech, where people with ideas and skills get together in a mashup competition to | Read More »
Rep. Ann McLane Kuster (D, New Hampshire) sneers at the American people!
And not just the people of New Hampshire’s Second District. Kuster has a problem with all of us: …New Hampshire’s four members of Congress, three of them Democrats, were set upon by local reporters with one simmering question: What are you going to do about the faltering Affordable Care Act? Representative Ann McLane Kuster, the state’s freshman Democrat, displayed her own exasperation over the failed | Read More »
Rebutting Obamacare Claims
To hear liberals and Democrats speak, those being kicked off their current policies is actually a service to those people because they are being presented with better plans which one can purchase on a non-functional website. Another line of thinking is that Obamacare is providing an opportunity for Americans who could never afford to purchase health insurance to do so now. Both of these assertions | Read More »
Sen. Ted Cruz’ Press Release and Repeal of the ACA
Time, Talent, and Treasure (what I have left of it) I will pledge to any and all who help Senator Ted Cruz successfully repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare (see Ted Cruz’ Press Release HERE). This is your Come to Jesus moment. Whatever mistakes you’ve made in the past I will forgive if you do two things. First, you must publicly, and | Read More »
Toure’, Progressivism And The Attitude That Endangers A Republic
TOURE NEBLETT: Let’s just look at members who are supporting this Landrieu bill, right. Mary Landrieu from a red state. Senator Kay Hagan from a red state. Joe Manchin from a red state. Senator Pryor from a red state. Senator Mark Begich from a red state. Do you notice anything? We see red state Democrats who are dealing with the challenge of living and governing in a gerrymandered world where sometimes they have to deal with what the folks on the right – very low support from the Republican side for this – what the folks on the right want.
I’ve hated gerrymandering for years and wished someone would write an algorithm to draw Congressional Districts that would just about make it impossible. Perhaps I should feel vindicated that a cracker-jack pundit on MSNBC is seeing things my way. Here’s Toure Neblett getting religion on gerrymandering. It’s just that there are two problems. One, you can’t gerrymander a Senate District. The 2nd, more serious problem is his attitude.

I Don’t Think. We’re Stupid
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com Last weekend American diplomacy was dealt a setback in its latest bid to appease Iran, This was due to what the Wall Street Journal called “unforeseen developments” such as Israel’s opposition to what the French Foreign Minister called “a sucker’s deal.” American Secretary of State John Kerry reacted to the development by stating, “We are not blind, and I don’t think we’re stupid.” What | Read More »
House Energy/Commerce Committee: HHS knew all along #obamacare was failing.
Oh, this should provide hours of amusement. House Energy and Commerce Committee leaders today unveiled a series of documents provided by the Department of Health and Human Services from July 2013 that reveal the administration internally voicing serious concerns about the progress of the HealthCare.gov website. Among the concerns raised by senior officials was the ability to meet the October 1 launch date and the | Read More »
