No security ever built into Obamacare site: Hacker. “When you develop a website, you develop it with security in mind. And it doesn’t appear to have happened this time.” Yeah, but it has kewl graphics and Obama’s name is mentioned on it so… Mission Accomplished! [Video at the link.]
Bonfire of the Absurdities
Official: White House to push benefits of Obamacare, PR offensive on the way. Translation: ObamaCare is costing people more money for less service and the stupid website doesn’t even work so we’ll create a media-based sophmoric pep rally to make U like it! Even warehouses full of hammers could not be this dumb.
ObamaCare website crashes when CNN tests upgraded version. “I have to say it did work a lot more smoothly this morning.” Yeah, it let’s you type in a lot more stuff before it loses all of it.
Hard sell: Going door-to-door for Obamacare. “Non-partisan” Obamacare evangelists go door-to-door spreading the
manure good news about the Holey Redeemer’s healthcare scam, and get about the reaction you’d expect. “’Obamacare!’ says Shirtless, elbowing Pitbull. Pitbull then starts making finger-pistol signs directing me down the street. ‘Keep on walking with Obamacare,’ he says, still convulsing.” And that was one of the friendlier ones.
Media attacks Obama’s ‘”Soviet-style” publicity policy. “Major media organisations protest against being shut out of president’s events in favour of official photographer.” The dopes that put him on a pedestal are now bitchin’ about what they’ve wrought. If we had a 3D printer, we’d print up a nice violin to play.
Vote Republican — and save the country. A self-identified “old liberal Democrat” says his party “needs a crushing electoral defeat” in order to save the country from “the massive political sins of the Democrats” as well as to “save the Democratic Party from itself.” Too bad he didn’t say this before Nov 6, 2012…
Viral “Poverty Thoughts” essay is totally ridiculous. “…not only does Linda say she’s living in seedy motels and stabbing roaches, but she’s also working two jobs, taking a full load of college courses,,, She’s in desperate need of dental work, and her body is full of infection, but she can’t afford to spend the money on medical or dental care. It’s a tragic, tragic story. It’s also tragically fictional.”
Venezuela’s Maduro accuses 99 percent of businesses of “price gouging,” vows to punish more “capitalist parasites.” Whenever socialism fails (as it inevitably does), it’s always someone else’s fault.
Iran announces development of ballistic missile technology. “Perhaps, [Secretary of State] John Kerry believes that Iran only wants ballistic missiles for peaceful purposes.” Well, it’s not like Iran is some guy from fly-over country buying an AR-15, is it?
“Non-partisan” group was paid $1 million to produce positive Obamacare stories. Geez, that works out to about $500k per story, we reckon.
Alec Baldwin, fired by MSNBC, asks why not Martin Bashir? “Martin Bashir’s on the air, and he made his comment on the air!” Comrade Baldwin adds thoughtcrime to his hatecrime charges.
New Obamacare setback: HHS delays online enrollment for small businesses. “Republicans immediately seized on the latest setback as another indication that Obamacare is full of bureaucratic glitches and doomed to fail.” Aw, they said that about the California bullet train, too… and look where that is now.
Record number of French corporate bankruptcies; Socialist theory vs. practice; What went wrong? Oh, the usual… Socialism works, but they just picked the wrong guy to implement it again.
Iran deal and Munich: A fair comparison? “Britain and France were weak in 1938. …the U.S. negotiated with Iran as if it was the weaker party.” After years of BS about how Obackstab was the next Lincoln, FDR and/or Reagan, the Chamberlain juxtaposition is at last much closer to the truth.
US B-52 bombers challenge disputed China air zone. “The US has flown two B-52 bombers over disputed islands in the East China Sea in defiance of new Chinese air defence rules…” Lucky we have President 404 and Honest John Kerry on the job… or maybe not. More here.
Alec Baldwin out at MSNBC. “Baldwin alienated staffers when he demanded a separate makeup room being used by a woman with cancer who is sensitive to hairspray. …he allegedly bellowed at the top of his lungs, ‘I don’t give a f - - k if she has cancer or not, I want that f - - king makeup room.’” Don’t know why they dumped him, seems like he fit right in over there.
OFA: Be sure to use Thanksgiving dinner to convince relatives to buy a plan on the ObamaCare exchange. “Chances are folks at the dinner table probably look to you, mostly as a voice of reason on the subject.” With ObamaCare circling the drain, chances are they’d rather listen to the turkey – the one on the table, not the one in the White House.
Barack Obama “A very eloquent hat stand,” says… GQ. We vigorously disagree – we don’t think he’s at all eloquent.
Elon University is offering a self-pleasure course to teach students how to masturbate. Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach.
Senator: Sports stadiums “at risk from…sea-level rise effects of climate change”. “He said the threat to hockey is that people will no longer be able to play outdoors on frozen ponds.” Sounds like his mind is already under water. [Video at the link - bring your snorkel.]
Poll: If voters had known they’d lose insurance, Romney would have won. “…23 percent said they would not have voted to re-elect Obama, while 72 percent said they would still have voted for him.” Gosh, the Democrap-Media complex just couldn’t let the stupid voters fail to reelect the bestest president evah – they just had to make that incorrect promise, don’t you see?
Opting out of ObamaCare – not just for the young? “In trying to understand what caused health insurance plans to skyrocket in cost, I found out that to be ACA-compliant they must now cover things like maternity care and pediatric dental – even if you’re a 61 year old empty nester!” Credit Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) for this: “Obama is like someone who burns down your house. Then shows up with an empty water bucket. Then lectures you about how defective the house was.”
