Let the Death Spiral Begin
American Spectator, by David Hogberg

If President Obama were really clever, he’d jump at the Republicans’ proposal in the continuing resolution to delay Obamacare for one year. A one-year delay is perhaps the only chance to prevent the Obamacare exchanges from becoming a disaster. Don’t take my word for it. Here’s Kevin Counihan, chief executive of Connecticut’s exchange, Access Health CT: “It is highly complex , it’s unprecedented and it’s not going to be smooth…. This is a two- to three-year implementation we’re doing in 10 months. I wish we had one more year.” The problem is that the test runs have revealed the exchange websites aren’t

This is all a diversion tactic, with the 100% knowledge that the Main Stream Media, network and newspapers, will back Obama and take eyes off the opening day for Obamacare! Drudge didn´t fall for it, but the Daily Caller certainly did. (And for the Press to IGNORE the numerous offers made by the Republicans and dismissed out of hand by Reid and Obama is just criminal........ditto their ignoring the CONTENT, e.g. ALL Americans getting the waiver Obama passes out illegally to his chosen ones and anyone connected to the government!

I continue to believe that it is a distinct possibility that they want Obamacare to fail so that they can ram a single-payer system down our throats.

National healthcare software held together overtime with spaghetti code needing many entrenched programmers to keep it afloat. Its not about health its not about insurance its about full employment for IT contractors. I think that´s great. You rock Obama.

ObamaCare´s hasty roll-out has doomed it... The young 20-40 year old´s that are to provide the support premiums are used to NOW, not We´ll cal you when it´s fixed". If it does not work in the next few weeks, the momentum will be gone, gone, gone forever... as the critical folks move on to the next new thing or trend.

#6, I agree with you. This was designed to fail, but it was absolutely not designed to fall apart before we all embraced it. The quick failure in so many segments has caught media attention. The administration has lost the advantage.

Walter Mondale ran against Ronaldus Magnus with a claim that "a million lines of code" was a really bad idea.

Hope everybody remembered that one.

Gee whiz, I think that´s Windows 7 in its Beta version, but whadda´ I know. Still, all things considered it´s fair to argue that the Democrat version of an ´exchange´ is "a risky scheme" because it relies on 100 million lines of code that have to work right the first time and every time ~ and they just aren´t ready, and probably never will be.

(Number of lines of code running ObamaKKKare is a proxy for the real number which I am sure "they" don´t know!)

Before the death spiral can begin the software must first work. I tried to set up an account at healthcare.gov at 12:45 AM today (Tuesday). The requirements for your username and password are excessively complex. You must have an e-mail address, which is not instantly verified. I specified Florida for my state, to use the federal exchange computations. You must specify both state and ZIPcode - they can´t look up states from your ZIP? Then you must select 3 security questions and answers, but the security question dropdowns don´t work on an iPhone 4, so I have no idea what they are. But I was able to create answers anyway. When I tapped the "create account" button, I got "system unavailable, try later".

In sum, the software interface is too complex for the LoFos, and a turnoff for the younger computer-literate generation, which will want to use smartphones and tablets, not a desktop computer. And at 12:45 AM, it didn´t work.

This Frankenstein is the mastermind of the ruling class to enslave all Americans except themselves. I´ve already gotten a notice from the giant health care system in my city stating which plans they will not serve. In 2015 when all the grannies get their notice we will have wholesales slaughter on the helpless old folks. But once this monster breathes it will be impossible to kill. Can you imagine how many people will suffer or die because there is not a single hospital or medical practice that can handle the problems with this monster.

This process sounds very much like signing up for Medicare Part D. A very kind lady from my previous insurance walked me through the process, but it was not easy. The software did all work, but even so, it took me several months to figure out which plan would be the best one for me. My first choice turned out to be less than optimal, so I had to get out of that one and into another. Even with everything working well, it was a traumatic time. I can´t imagine impatient 20-somethings and 30-somethings putting up with that, plus nonworking software and ignorant "Navigators."

Do they not know that a relatively large percentage of computer owners don’t know how to do anything other than access porno sites?
That out here in real America dial-up is still the only available internet service unless you have the big bucks to sign up for a satellite link?

The signing up ´partners´ that have been hired from all the usual left wing organizer groups, are used to signing people up for free stuff. In this case (except for Medicaid) it isn´t free, you are signing up people to pay for a product. I see the sell being a little harder.

BRILLIANT Reply 23 - Posted by: TarAndFeathers, above, "Medical care is the keystone of the arch of socialism" V. I. Lenin”. Thank you! TarAndFeathers !

October 1, 2013, marks Insane Hussein’s first official day of Attempted Communism in America. Now is the time to turn on
your “question authority” buttons and read anything you can get your hands on about Hitler, his socialism, and Stalin, his Soviet Communism.
Hollywood has not allowed the non reading masses to learn about this, professors avoid any of the gross realities of Communism, and all press and media will not even mention that one loaded word.
Thank you, NYTimes, Diane Sawyer, Steve Pelley, Brian Williams, all our Ministers of Propaganda. Now is the time to catch up on the horrors of reality we face.

By the way, it is finally time for Sean, Rush, O´Reilly, Mark Levin, to begin using
that word, communism, in their daily work.

Dittos, #4. As the article implies, a delay benefits the Emperor. What the article doesn´t say, however, is that a one-year delay also gets the Dems through next year´s election without voters feeling the real pain. That is the real benefit to the Emperor.

But, when our young people get wind of this, it´s going to hit the fan, and I believe that our two-party establishment in Washington will become history.

The New Fear of Flying After MH370

No accident in history of flying has ever spooked as many people. It’s a crisis for the airline industry that wants to make Asia a larger market than North America and Europe combined. Fear of flying is irrational but often incurable. Once the doors close on the cabin there is no escape. Your life is in the hands of the pilots together with the most complex machine ever devised for travel. You have no control. The requirement for you to submit to confinement is reinforced by accepting the first bag of peanuts. Irrational? Just look at the numbers. Last year 1.3 million

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

The push from the commander in chief, generals and politicians to punish sexual offenders has become so relentless that it endangers the fairness of the military justice system, defense lawyers say. They worry that a cacophony of public statements vouching for accusers and demanding justice can sway military judges and jurors who are trained to take lawful orders. A military judge already has ruled that “unlawful command influence” infected the infamous case of an Army general charged with a string of sex offenses. “I think it’s troublesome when you have the president and the secretary of defense making certain pronouncements about what’s to

Liberals keep dismissing challenges to ObamaCare, political and legal, so it´s no surprise they mostly ignored last week´s oral argument at the D.C.

"Bottom Line: We Are On Track To Launch” ranks right up there with “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” as one of the biggest falsehoods in the annals of Obamacare. The latter quote is the one that President Barack Obama used repeatedly as he lobbied for passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and then as he campaigned for a second presidential term.

Experts say a bigger earthquake along the lesser-known fault that gave Southern California a moderate shake could do more damage to the region than the long-dreaded “Big One” from the more famous San Andreas Fault. The Puente Hills thrust fault, which brought Friday night’s magnitude-5.1 quake centered in La Habra and well over 100 aftershocks by Sunday, stretches from northern Orange County under downtown Los Angeles into Hollywood — a heavily populated swath of the Los Angeles area. A magnitude-7.5 earthquake along that fault could prove more catastrophic than one along the San Andreas, which runs along the outskirts of

But health care isn’t about politics, it’s about people, and millions of people have lost their health insurance, millions of people can’t see their own doctors, and millions are paying more and getting less.” At the close, a narrator urges viewers to “tell Mary Landrieu to stop thinking about politics and start thinking about people.” Such ads have

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who won eight primaries and caucuses in the 2008 Republican presidential race, says a new poll showing him tied for the lead of the 2016 GOP primary race is "encouraging." The poll, done by Washington-based WPA Opinion Research, shows Huckabee and Rand Paul tied at the top of a still very unformed GOP race, with 13 percent each. Jeb Bush is second at 11 percent, with Chris Christie and Ted Cruz tied at nine percent, Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio at six percent, Scott Walker at five percent, Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum at three percent,

Jonathan Soros, who has already spent millions on campaign contributions and television advertising in an ironic campaign to “get private money out of politics,’’ warned Cuomo and the Senate’s co-leaders, Republican Dean Skelos (Nassau) and Democrat Jeff Klein (Bronx), Friday in direct conversations that he would launch election-year attacks against them, and encouraged others to do the same, if

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character. The latest batch of documents from the Clinton Library covering his presidency in the

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or
