Hackers blamed for NY’s ObamaCare breakdown
The numbers just don’t add up.
The “abnormally high traffic” that crippled New York’s ObamaCare Web site for two days may have resulted from a malicious attack by hackers, computer-security experts said Wednesday.
So what you are saying is:
A White, Tea Party Man, driving a 4X4, with a Stars and Bars Flag waving in the back, Praying to God, holding a rifle, and with the initial R L hacked into and f up the ACA website?

MORE IRONY The Normal Liberian Excuse
In response to the U S state department’s Human Rights reports on Liberia in which the Johnson-Sirleaf government was indicted for the lack of transparency and impunity on the part of corruption officials, the attorney general of Liberia said “ I have not seen the report”. Is this new? No, this is what they always say in addition to “considering we are post conflict, we are doing well”. The Attorney General went on to say “our people know where we were and what we have done and where we are and that well-meaning Liberians and our foreign partners” know we are improving. This is what you get from the chief protector of public and private property as well as public safety when one of the government’s prime benefactors, the U S charges it with malfeasance and misfeasance. Who are these well-meaning Liberians and foreign partners? When you do not legitimize the bad Johnson-Sirleaf government then you are deemed not well-meaning. The Americans are reporting this as a violation of human rights and the AG is playing cheap politics to gain her boss’ approval.

This brings me to a very important national security issue and that is Liberian’s immigration and nationality laws, the enforcement of which is the responsibility of the Liberian AG. According to the ABA Rule of Law Initiative’s (ABA ROLI’s) Research Assessment office in Monrovia the current laws were modeled on the 1952 U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act, and have not been updated since 1974. Further the ABA ROLI, upon the request of the Immigration Administration undertook, completed, and presented an analysis and assessement of the Immigration and Nationality Laws of Liberia in 2009. The analysis was undertaken to assist the government in redrafting and modernizing the immigration and nationality laws of the country. The 1974 law and its analysis and assessment are available on the ABA LORI’s website. I have not been able to confirm if any further actions were taken to move the law along since that time.

This is a very important matter because in the past with the assistance of their influential friends, churches and political connections foreigners from neighboring countries like Ghana, Togo, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, USA, Guinea and the Caribbean Islands enjoyed access, privilege and good jobs in the public and private at the expense of the indigenous Liberians. Most of these people their children and extended families assumed citizenship and can now boast of Liberian citizenship and heritage. Something no Liberians could have accomplished then and now in those countries. As poor as the 1974 laws were the power elite still violated their own laws.

When in high school the chief of the LAMCO Buchanan plant protection force was a Ghanaian. When I graduated college and went to work for a public corporation about eighty percent of the staff in my department was a foreigner (Ghanaians, Sierra Leoneans, and Indians). Sadly the only part-time student was a Ghanaian. They were all over the place at the expense and disadvantage of the indigenous Liberian.LOLOLOLHAHAHAH IRONIC
THEY DONT CARE ABOUT RACE IN LIBERIA BORDERS LANGUAGE CULTURE IN LIBERIA hahahahahhahahaahahbama

Here's the answer you should have given: Because this administration has perfected the art of stonewalling and sweeping dirt under the rug, and the liberal media doesn't give a damn.
It has nothing to do with Republicans expecting to be included in the political process.
I answered.

Because it is a waste of time.

More dumbass Republicans yelling at people.

Republicans should hold hearing on how they cost the economy out of 24 billion dollars in an debt ceiling fiasco.

MORE IRONY FROM LIBERIA Our Imperative For Coexistence: Countering Looming Distrust And Tensions;Liberia is a deeply divided society: politically, socially, economically, religiously, and even culturally. We have yet not learned the necessary and essential craft of taking optimal advantage of its diversity. Discrimination and inequality are serious and pervasive problems when large segments of the population still live in abject poverty. Common courtesies are quite scarce in daily life.

These are not surprising, since we are just emerging from a prolonged civil war that crystallized our divisions along many superficial lines, ethnicity being most prominent. We have now normalized difference, denigration of difference, disagreements, anger, and conflicts in our way of life. The tension from unspoken hurt that people feel is still latent. Tremendous energy is being spent holding onto wounds from the past. Unfortunately, our political discourse has become mired by repeated disagreements across various aisles: the executive, the legislative, within political parties, religious entities, etc. And with an abounding number of vulnerable populations (ranging from illiterate to mis-educated people), those Liberians who enjoy and benefit from conflicts have easy preys to exploit. The call-in shows have a tendency to provide listeners a good gauge, although not exclusively. In many quarters, our national conversation seems short on substantive content.

After nearly two decades of bloodshed, distrust, and uneasy coexistence, we have realized peace, although fragile. How can we atone for the injustices that we meted out at one another so that we can bring about a Liberian sense of nationhood? How can we sustain the emerging peace that we have managed to build; and avoid the steps that rendered our country a failed state; and made us second class citizens around the world clamoring for livelihood?

In recent times, the theme that has grasped the popular imagination is the debate whether or not Liberia is a Christian nation. Zealots on one side or the other (Christians and Moslems alike) have tended to scuffle over the question – Should Liberia remain a secular state or not? Time has come for keen observers to sit up and notice. Time has come to add sensible voice to this national debate of grave concern.

In my mind, there is no greater offence to our peaceful sensibilities than when we want to falsely implicate religion in our country’s quest to overcome its divided past. Adding a religious dimension to our social and political problems will fan the fires without end. Recall that our conflict had a regional dimension. Most of all, were we Christians (this writer being one), to invite a religious quarrel, we will not be able to sustain it until the end. There are more Moslems in the region than there are Christians, and the experience of our colleagues in Nigeria should teach us a serious lesson not to engage in any diatribe that will divide us further and even instigate religious violence.

Dems could retake House if voter anger carries into 2014, polls show
Democrats could win "a significant majority" in the House if the voter anger aimed at Republicans over the government shutdown carries into 2014, new surveys commissioned by a progressive group shows.
According to Public Policy Polling, which conducted 25 surveys in GOP-held House districts on behalf of MoveOn.org , incumbent Republicans now trail generic Democratic candidates in 15 of the 25 districts. The results, combined with two previous surveys, show Democrats leading in 37 of 61 districts polled since the beginning of the government shutdown.
And when voters were informed that the Republican candidates supported the government shutdown, Democrats took the lead in 11 additional districts (one race became tied).
"This means that our results indicate Democrats have pickup opportunities in an astounding 49 of the 61 districts surveyed," Public Policy Polling's Jim Williams wrote in a memo announcing the findings.
Democrats need to net 17 seats in order to retake the House in 2014.
The poll results are in line with other recent surveys that show most Americans blame the GOP for the 16-day government shutdown, which began after the Republican-controlled House refused to pass legislation to fund government services unless President Barack Obama's health care law was delayed or defunded.
But before Democrats start ordering bulk champagne for November 2014, there are some factors to consider. The midterm elections are more than a year away and the Public Policy Polling surveys were conducted in the middle of the shutdown debate.
"Moreover," Williams wrote, "generic Democratic candidates are not the same as actual candidates. Democrats must recruit strong candidates and run effective campaigns in individual districts if they are to capitalize on the vulnerability revealed by these surveys, and they must maintain a significant national advantage over Republicans."

Not raising the debt ceiling on top of failing to fund the government would take hundreds of billions of dollars out of the US economy plunging us back into a recession or worse. Lower our credit rating.

This is what YOUR buddies wanted to do.
