You would think that the O'bama administration couldn't screw up another web sit--but that is not the case.
WASHINGTON (UPI)— A software glitch on the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website may have compromised personal information of veterans, officials said.
Veterans who logged in to the department’s eBenefits site were able to see other former service members’ information, including their names, dates of birth, disabilities, how much they had been paid and the Social Security numbers, FedScoop reported Monday.
A user who contacted the news agency said he tried to alert the department to the problem to no avail. The veteran, Eric Grzelak, said each time he refreshed his Internet browser a different user’s information was made available.
The department told FedScoop some 10,000 veterans had logged onto the website over the weekend when the glitch first surfaced. The government shut down the site over the weekend though it didn’t say why. As of Sunday night it was up and running properly again. Given new information was generated each time someone refreshed their browser an unknown number of members could have been exposed, FedScoop said.
Some 2.8 million veterans have created profiles on the site, which enables them to access a variety of government forms, medical records and create direct deposits for cash benefits.

Things The Mainstream Media Would Say About Obama If He Were A Republican

Anyone who follows politics knows that the mainstream media has two sets of rules: one set for conservatives and another set for liberals.

Conservatives spend most of their time correcting smears and trying to explain to the public what they really believe.

Liberals, on the other hand, can count on the press to hide their unpopular beliefs and put the best spin possible on everything they do.

This is why you often hear Republicans say, "Imagine what they'd say if a Democrat had said that," while you almost never hear Democrats say, "Imagine what they'd say if a Republican had said that."

Those two separate sets of rules shape how politicians behave, how they're perceived, and the issues that they spend most of their time talking about.

In Barack Obama's case, the media would be focusing on an entirely different set of issues if he were a Republican.

If Obama was a Republican, the media would say:

This guy is way too stupid to be President of the United States! Poor Dan Quayle was forever branded as stupid for misspelling the word potato. It's not often noted, however, that the card that he was given by the school had misspelled the word.

Then there's Obama, the man who stammers without a teleprompter, the guy who won't release his college records. How does Quayle's gaffe compare to Obama thinking there are 57 states? Duhr!

How about Obama walking into a window at the White House? Duhr, duhr!

What about signing a guest book 2008 in 2011? Duhr, duhr, duhr!

Obama's stupidity would be a staple of late night talk show jokes if he were a Republican.

If Obama was a Republican, the media would say:

Obama's an amateurish cowboy who's wrecking our image around the world!

Obama has made Jimmy Carter look like a foreign policy mastermind since he got into the White House. Sure, he gets credit for getting Osama Bin Laden. When the military walked up to Obama and said, "We know where Bin Laden is. Can we go get him?" he made the "gutsy call" to say "yes."

Of course, he's also damaged our relations with Britain, Israel, and Pakistan. He's screwed things up so badly with Pakistan that it's endangering the war effort in Afghanistan.

His administration gave Russia a "reset button" that actually said "overcharge."

The fact you probably don't even know about how badly we screwed things up in Honduras is telling.

Then, there's Obama's impulsive and bizarre insertion of the American military into a civil war in Libya.

If Obama were a Republican, the media would be telling us we need to get a Democrat in office to repair the damage caused by Obama's blundering.

If Obama was a Republican, the media would say:

Obama's going to bankrupt the country by giving our money to his corporate cronies!

Remember when the media talked about the size of the deficit all the time?

Remember when we heard about Halliburton and Blackwater on a daily basis? Oh, yes, that was when we had a Republican President.

Now we've got the most wasteful spender in the history of our country in the White House, we're in danger of going bankrupt, and tens of billions in tax dollars have been transferred to corporations that have given money to the Democratic Party.

Now SUDDENLY the "fierce watchdogs of the press" have become completely complacent about corporate cronyism and the very real possibility that our country will turn into Greece within the next decade.

'Polar' Cold Is Coming Back
By DAN GOOD | Good Morning America – 11 hours ago
Get ready to bundle up again. A polar chill is expected to settle over the Northern U.S. in three waves this week – with temperatures expected to dip into the single digits in some areas, along with heavy snowfall.
The cold spell coincides with a winter storm across the Northeast, bringing blizzard-like conditions to New Jersey, New York, Long Island, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Forecasters expect the first cold wave to emerge Monday into Tuesday. Another cold spell should strike Thursday into Friday, and the third wave is expected for Sunday, Jan. 26.
During the cold spells, highs are forecast to drop into the single digits or near zero for the upper Midwest, with high temperatures in the single digits and teens for the Ohio Valley. Overnight lows should drop well below zero across parts of the Midwest.
In the Northeast, expect highs in the teens and 20s for major cities from Washington, D.C. to Boston, with temperatures dipping to single digits and teens for inland areas.
Overnight lows will drop near 10 degrees for major cities in the northeast, with some spots in northern New York and New England dropping well below zero.
The new chill comes three weeks after a polar vortex gripped much of the country with subzero cold, contributing to at least a dozen deaths.
It shouldn't be quite as cold this time, so no polar vortex. But officials are warning people to take precautions, to brace for another week of frigid, spine-tingling cold.

If Obama was a Republican, the media would say:

He's the job-killing, gas-price-raising, economy-wrecking President!

Can you imagine the stories we'd see every day if a Republican were President?

We'd have daily stories on the people left homeless by the “Obamaconomy,” human interest stories about single mothers who can't feed their kids anymore, and we'd hear from experts every day about how Obama is killing jobs, raising costs at the pump, and destroying the economy with his policies.

Remember how the press used to slip a reference to George Bush speaking in front of the "Mission Accomplished" banner into every story about Iraq?

Well, they'd do the same thing with Barack Obama's empty promises about how his 1.1 trillion dollar stimulus would "save or create jobs."

Can you hear them now?

"So, how's the economy looking?

Gas prices still high?

Are we seeing any impact of the stimulus yet?

How many jobs have been 'saved or created’-- and that's a meaningless, made up phrase by the way...”

If Obama was a Republican, the media would say:

Obama's not an authentic black man.

Black conservatives have their "blackness" challenged all the time, often by privileged white liberals who don't know any black people other than the ones who clean their mansions.

If Barack Obama were a Republican, he'd be called an Oreo, a half-white house slave, and a white man pretending to be black.

On the upside for the Clintons, Democrats would still be calling Bill Clinton the first (and only) black President.

If Obama was a Republican, the media would say:

He's an arrogant jerk who cares about no one but himself!

Vacation, golf, shooting hoops -- the fun never stops for Barack Obama.

It would be great if the rest of us could take that much time off, but our jobs keep us too busy.

It's also fantastic that Obama finally went to Joplin, Missouri. If you're wondering why it took so long, well, they didn't have a golf course cleared until now.

Have you heard that some Republicans have taken to calling Barack Obama "Mr. Spock" because of his "cool" demeanor?

Yeah, well, I'm pretty sure Mr. Spock never wore mom jeans, he could talk without a teleprompter, and Bones was around to tell him, "Damnit Spock, it's not logical for the President to ignore the BP oil spill for so long. So, get your Vulcan behind in gear and do something!"

7th grade cognitive level. Do you mean like the 18 year old Democrats who had to be socially promoted to get to 7th grade?

And manipulation by their wealthy handlers. Yes, we'll vote Democrat if you promise to give us everything free and keep us in the inner city projects having babies when we are teenagers and not knowing who the fathers of our children are.

Every Democrat aspires to be so manipulated.
