Look,dickforbrains, your buddy wanted to hire Apple. Apple has a history of glitches in their iphone releases. Glitches in their programing.
You are aware that websites are programmed, right? like Iphones.
I don't know which is worse? Clinton's Y2K internet scam of history of glitches, planes falling out of the sky, the world ending or the Obamakkkare website blaming iphones???

The concept behind the obamacare website is to cache websites on different Geographcal locations (states) to provide better /fast access and reduce load on core servers. This is not iPhone technology..

In other words for you novices, manage more load, from different states and traffic, meaning handling a high rate of visits on Linux web server using AkamaiGHost.... This is not iPhone technology..

You know nothing of or how the internet works... and your opinionated comparison of an iphone to website are worthless and illiterate.

So let’s talk about the basics tenants of Marxism/collectivism/socialism /communism and other forms of pipe dreams the progressives think up. The below restraints on liberty and freedom are right out of the handbook of Karl Marx and failed socialistic doctrines around the globe, and though started here, will continue in my next article:

&#9679; Take control of healthcare through government central planning and you can more easily control the people. The healthcare system in the US is about 16-18% of the total US economy, and as such, the attempt by the federal government to takeover this vital part the American Economy, is the largest undertaking ever attempted by any government EVER!

For a government that cannot show a single successfully managed department, program, or scheme, with the possible exception of the space program, the attempt to take over the BEST healthcare system in the world is surely another bureaucratic pipe dream. Let me clarify this statement…When I say the government cannot show a single successfully managed department, project, or program, the LEFT is going to have a stroke. What they will not be able to show however, is verifiable evidence to sustain any argument to the contrary because there are no examples where the government has provided meaningful oversight that would measure success…oversight meaning:

Oversight that successfully eliminates corruption and theft.
Projects, departments, or programs that are completed on time and on budget.
Projects, departments, or programs that are discontinued when completed or no longer needed.
On going projects that do not run without continued and growing taxpayer support.
Trust funds such as Medicare and Social Security that are run as required by law and are safe and secure from default and underfunding.
Government retirement funds that are safe and solvent without bankrupting future generations of Americans.
Departments that are auditable and accountable for their actions as well as being totally open to Congressional oversight.
Departments where management as well as employees can be fired for abuse, misconduct, malfeasance, and other causes without costing the taxpayers a ton on money in “golden parachutes”, and accumulated bonuses and retirement benefits, and where jail-time and loss of accumulated benefits can be applied to those who violate the public trust.
Departments, programs, and projects run efficiently, like companies in the private sector, without monumental waste.
Departments, programs, and projects that operate for the benefit of those served and not for the perpetuation of bureaucratic furtherance.
So let’s look at the healthcare takeover. The latest general report from the World Health Organization that praises government control of healthcare is built on the faulty foundation that health care is a special economic activity requiring intense governmental involvement. Many contend the US takeover is not about healthcare at all…it is about the ultimate control over the people.

The World Health Organization’s 215-page World Health Report 2000, released in June, is a catalog of advice to its 191 member states about the shortcomings of market mechanisms and the advantages of government central planning. The delivery of health care, it said, is a special case requiring the “continuous and permanent” responsibility of government. Not mentioned in the report was the disastrous performance of every socialist economy to date, nor the quality of care versus the US. Is health care so different that it defies everything we know about human behavior and economics?

Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States.” Sen. Barry Goldwater (Rep. AR)

With no Congressional oversight, the Federal Reserve is free to do pretty much as it pleases and continues to degrade our currency with Quantitative Easing in an effort to fool the public about the forthcoming inflationary crisis. The FED is gambling on the economy improving to cover the flim-flam effort to prop up the Obama Administration’s policies which 76% of the population believe is going in the wrong direction. This is not some unknown phenomenon that currency manipulation is bad for the country. We were warned nearly two centuries ago…

“We are in danger of being overwhelmed with irredeemable paper, mere paper, representing not gold nor silver; no sir, representing nothing but broken promises, bad faith, bankrupt corporations, cheated creditors and a ruined people. Daniel Webster, 1834

And again in 1992, just 21 years ago…

“I have never seen more Senators express discontent with their jobs….I think the major cause is that, deep down in our hearts, we have been accomplices in doing something terrible and unforgivable to our wonderful country. Deep down in our heart, we know that we have given our children a legacy of bankruptcy. We have defrauded our country to get ourselves elected.”— John Danforth (R-Mo)

START TAKING FROM THE WRAPPERS AND BALL PLAYERS Enactment of lopsided progressive or graduated income tax which takes from the successful and redistributes to those less successful…effectively punishing hard working people.

When the 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, effectively giving The Congress the power to levy and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration, in 1913, the real Marxist coup began in the United States. This punishing taxation continues to drain the American economy, reduces the accumulation of capital for future growth, stifles new business start-ups, hinders job creation, and limits what business can pay its employees. Yes, tax money is needed to run a government of limited powers as enumerated in the Constitution, but to collect taxes in a punishing manner (i.e. graduated scales with those on the bottom tier of income paying absolutely nothing) fosters a runaway and out-of-control government with the maximum of public mistrust.

There’s a Clown in the WH…You can’t make this stuff up, Obama provides ‘hotline number’ for those that continue to encounter problems online, it doesn’t work, it fails to get you through to a navigator, either its Busy are you receive an automated message or you are referred back to Healthcare. Gov. my guess they didn’t test this Number either!!

Snowden Offers to Fix Healthcare.gov
Posted by Andy Borowitz
MOSCOW (The Borowitz Report)—The N.S.A. leaker Edward Snowden today reached out to the United States government, offering to fix its troubled healthcare.gov Web site in exchange for immunity from prosecution.
Speaking from an undisclosed location in Russia, Mr. Snowden said he hacked the Web site over the weekend and thinks he is “pretty sure what the problem is.”
“Look, this thing was built terribly,” he said.“It’s a government Web site, O.K.?”
Mr. Snowden said that if an immunity deal can be worked out,“I can get to work on this thing right away—I don’t need a password.”
In addition to full immunity, Mr. Snowden said he is requesting that he be allowed to work from home.
At the White House, President Obama offered a muted response to Mr. Snowden’s proposal:“Edward Snowden is a traitor who has compromised our national security. Having said that, if he knows why we keep getting those error messages, that could be a conversation.”
This guy is sure full of himself isn't he? The only accommodation awaiting Snowden should be an 8x10 cell at Guantanamo Bay. Federal Prison is too good for him.

Yes it opened at 8,279.63 before Obama took the oath, and it lost 332 points that day.

9/3/2008: Dow closed at 11,532.88
Obama accepted the Democrat Nomination that evening. The next day the Dow lost 344 points.

11/4/2008: Dow closed at 9616.60
Obama won the Presidential election that night. The next day the Dow lost 477 points.
