Scrutiny, do you really want the government involved in making healthcare decisions and being the source of where your healthcare comes from? Tell me it isn't so. This is the most personal invasion by a government that has grown to a very threatening size to a free people. It scares the hell out of me.

NYT: Obamacare Collapse 'Has Deeply Embarrassed' White House
Thanks for the link.

Obamacare has collapsed?

Which White House spokesperson has said "We are deeply embarrassed"?

Oh... it hasn't?

And that statement was not made?

Hmmm, Is anyone at all surprised that the NYT never carried an article by that title?

THAT is why there was no link.

Here is the actual title of the NYT article.

"From the Start, Signs of Trouble at Health Portal"

An article about a log-in bug.

Some of you guys are just.... WOW.

Am I happy that a government who has perfected the most awe inspiring gaddamn espionage machine that has ever targeted the American people will have access to peoples medical records too?

Hell no!

I like even less that the IRS is involved.

Please don't mistake my aversion of being lied to by puppet mouth pieces for support of a disaster waiting to happen.

It is the privacy issue that I care about. I think we are going to get bent over either way.

In addition...

I was screaming my face off about this crap back when they were getting their proverbial foot in the door... the whole way back to the patriot act.

You know what I heard from conservatives back then?

"He is 'keeping us safe' and if we have to give up some of our privacy to protect our security... so be it."

What you reap, is what you sew.

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

1. Date of NYT "Obama collapse" please;

2. Hatch knows darn well what he said about Obamacare not working is untrue, but he knows his constituency, so he tells it what it wants to hear, truth be damned. I'm disappointed, as I've often found the man to be very...unRepublican, speaking his own mind no matter what.

When you hate , you hate, Rogue. There is no limit. When it's not her cold demeanour, it's parking tickets now.

She was chauffeured, poor you. Do you think she had anything to do with illegal parking? Or do you think that the Secretary of State of the U.S.A. should drive her own car to an event honouring her? Do you think she personally argued with the cop who is, incidentally, stupid? Do you think the ticket will be paid? Wanna bet? Any other miscellaneous hate story you want to highlight?

Yup, a Canadian company, as the voting machines that were Canadian in that Florida 2000 voting fiasco. I have to wonder why they imported that Obamacare programme in the first place.

But it's a glitch, I'm sure, and all will fall in place in a week or so. There was a stampede, I believe, to the site, no?

Sorry about the duplication, I must've inadvertently double clicked. Oh, no, no signing up online for us, that was 1965, only lnes were telephone and telegraph lines. It was done by employers. At that time, it was compulsory and there was a premium to pay, about $10 a month, which in today's dollars would be about $100 I guess. About 25 years ago, gov't decided to waive the premium, it's now free, with costs coming from general tax revenue which I believe, costs less per individual.

Just for you info : Our plan covers ALL hospital expenses, including drugs whilst in hospital and all programs, even physio. Out of hospital, drugs are not covered until age 65, though employer-employee plans cover more than half of Canadians. We've been agitating for full coverage and it was about to be granted , then came the crash of 1008. Postponed. Same for dental programme. Our programme is universal, and so we do have longer waiting time, it's the penalty we pay for all of us being covered. Personally, and since our return here in Canada in 1994, we've never had long waits, or queues. Lucky? Yes and no, I guess.

Now retired, ALL health care is free for me. Before reaching 65, all one has to do is fill in a few forms that certify you're 65, and you get a card identifying you and your age. Just present it to any pharmacy.For doctors and hospital, no change, just show your health card and you have zilch to pay.

Now, our system is okay, I guess, but as I said, far from perfect and a poor one if you compare it to the other 32 OECD countries that have universal health care, where EVERYTHING is included.

Take my word for it, the only thing provincial gov'ts do is to initally legislate what health care and drugs are to be administered. And it's pretty much all of it. New drugs have to be approved by the Ministry of Health. No individual here, doctor or patient, need refer ANY treatment or surgery or lab exams or drugs to the gov't for approval. Not ever. Our doctor orders all the tests she needs, which we get right away at a nearby lab, no authority seeked. Same for surgery, and I speak from experience. Yes, American doctors often have to refer to patients' insurance companies for authority to proceed, but not here. Ever.

Why did her chauffeured park where he did? Did Hillary tell him to? Her chauffeur is obligated to abide by the law. Should he drive 150 kmp/h in a 100-zone because she told him to?

You may be good with helicopters, but not too familiar with chauffeured cars, now are you? When you're being driven around, or parked, and unless it's a huge violation of driving regulations, you don't worry about what or where the chauffeur parks, you let him/her to his/her job. I'm sure Clinton had no idea she was in a no parking or whatever zone. And if she did, it's not her problem, but chauffeur's problem, the one she or whoever hired for her.

Don't think for a second that it is a partisan thing that they feel entitled.

Years ago...I was out drinking with a very important guy here in Pa.

Republican State Senator pro-tem... not going to name him, but that is enough info to figure it out.

We were both pretty intoxicated, doing about 105mph southbound on I-99. Just having a blast. It was very late an there was nearly no traffic at all.

We got lit up and chased down by a state trooper. All that was going through my head was "This is not going to be good... for him to be caught DUI."

We pulled over. We sat for a min or two. He looked over at me and he could see the disbelief written all over my face. He smirked and turned his head as he rolled down his window.

The trooper approached close enough to identify that there were two people in the car.

"Licence and registration.." Right?

No.

"Apologies, Mr. Senator... I did not realize it was you."

The to my utter disbelief he did a 180 and marched straight back to his cruiser.

We pulled away, and didn't speak of it again.
