Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

There are some very smart and informative lefties on here, I learned right away that wasting my time and energy on them with the facts was a total waste so I assume their level it doesn't prove anything but it makes me feel better. It's the only real way to communicate when you are dealing with their programmed ignorance that is imbedded into their very fiber.

Retirement makes us repetitious ?
...having posts that are repeated many times in a way that is boring having too much repetition ...
Some people apparently have thicker skulls than others or just don't pay attention. I know this firsthand as a former teacher.

But repetition is sometimes the only thing that makes learning something important finally sink in.

FACT: This president never called Panetta once for an update during the 9/11 terrorist attack in Benghazi.

FACT: A video was still blamed at the victims' funerals and to the victims' families.

FACT: Security was removed when the ambassador had requested more security repeatedly.

FACT: No answers have been forthcoming.

QUESTION: Why is that?

Hope you were paying attention this time.

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.
The NY State of Health site recorded an astounding 10 million visits after opening for business Tuesday — although there are only about 1.1 million state residents without health insurance and just 330,000 are expected to buy ObamaCare for next year.
By comparison, the federal government’s heavily promoted HealthCare.gov site — a portal to the sites for all 50 states, the District of Columbia and America’s territories and commonwealths — drew just 4.7 million visitors the first day.
Late Tuesday, NY State of Health Executive Director Donna Frescatore said technicians were “looking into the cause of this abnormally high traffic.”
Darien Kindlund, manager of threat intelligence for the FireEye network-security company, said “the sheer volume” of visits to New York’s site pointed to a possible “distributed denial of service,” or DDoS attack, in which virus-infected computers bombard a site with traffic.
“The numbers are fairly compelling,” Kindlund said.
Hemant Jain, vice president of engineering for Fortinet, a network-security firm, said that “because [ObamaCare] is such a political issue, it could very well be a DDoS attack.”
“Certainly, you don’t expect everyone to wake up and access a Web site like that, so I have a feeling it may be an attack,” he said.
Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of CloudFlare, another security firm, said that while there wasn’t yet enough evidence to prove an attack,“it does not take a lot of technical resources” and hackers can be hired to disrupt a site for just a couple thousand dollars a day.
“There have to be people who disagree with [ObamaCare] enough to do that,” he added.
Throughout the day, the Web site displayed a banner message telling users to return later.
Freelance writer Cristina Gibson, 29, of Union Square, wanted to see how ObamaCare premiums compare to the $345 a month she currently pays for health insurance, but gave up in frustration after spending 40 minutes trying to navigate the site during a lunch break from jury duty.
“I’m interested in this, but not interested enough to be behind on stuff in my life,” she said.
Lawyer Greg Crawford, 50, of suburban Katonah, said he has Crohn’s disease and is hoping that ObamaCare will slash the “burdensome” cost of his current coverage.
But after creating an account Tuesday, Crawford got booted off the site and was unable to log in during a half-dozen attempts Wednesday.
“I’m not a big fan of the government taking over all this stuff politically, but I’m going to benefit from it tremendously as an individual, and I just wish it would work,” he said.

Perhaps Obama should make it a crime to visit the website if one doesn't intend to purchase insurance....outlaw curiosity....

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.”

The video was cited as a possible cause while the investigation continued. Note the word "possible".
Arguing with you Carol, Is like arguing with a two year old.
You stick your fingers in your ears & just keep repeating the same lies over & over & over.
Bullshit.
Susan Rice was on... how many talk shows... stating unequovically the Al Qaeda attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi was the result of a spontaneous demonstration that never happened do to a video that didn't even exist when Al Qaeda planned the attack.
Then, we get Hillary telling Tyrone Wood's father "“We're going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video.”

Did the person in the White House who changed the CIA report on the Al Qaeda attack in Benghazi to match the planned lie about some video and spontaneous demonstration get sent to prison yet?

Information Technology experts, outside and inside the government, have figured out the reason why the website for Obamakare's federally-sponsored insurance exchange is crashing.

Healthcare.gov forces you to create an account, a self-incrimination surveillance program requiring detailed personal information selling yourself out before you can shop for obamakare.

This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government gathers, a surveillance program that verifies your personal information and decides whether or not you're eligible for subsidies or handouts before you shop.

HHS bureaucrats knew this would make the website run slowly, and are more afraid letting people see first the underlying cost of Obamakare's insurance plans would scare people away.

If not for obamakare, the Tea Party would not have been a great success..

HOW is it THE OBAMA SUPPORTERS DONT MAKE A BIG DEAL OUT OF the ACTIONS OF THIS OBAMA SUPPORTER Principal Raped Boy in Office While Parent Was Outside
A North Carolina middle school principal has resigned after he was accused of having sex with a male student while the boy’s unsuspecting parent was outside the office.

David Ellis Edwards, 49, was arrested Friday and charged with numerous sex offenses against a minor, NC ABC affiliate WTVD reports. Edwards is also facing a crime against Nature charge.

It’s no secret that pedophiles and other perverts often seek employment in programs involving children, such as schools, churches and childcare centers.
