An addendum to the fairy tales wandering around Washington about the failed Obamacare web site.
The lady getting the blame, the boss of Health and Human Services, said last night that neither she nor the President visited the web site to make sure it worked.
If you have a web site, either company or personal, did you not load every single page of it the first day it was up..........
You know, at some point the stories these folks are telling are going to get to the point that no one will believe them about Global Warming.
You did notice that 2.4 inches of snow yesterday, right? Third earliest snowfall in the short recorded history of this area.
The Obamacare web site will be working this week, and you can save $2,500 dollars a year by buying your coverage there.
15 million dollars worth of dumb, that's how dumb.
You have to work hard to make the RDA and the gambling developer both mad at you. So Davenport worked hard. Made both of them mad.
The RDA and the developer rewrote the casino agreement, cutting Davenport's share of the take by about 15 million dollars.
The the RDA unanimously approved the deal, despite the Public Display of Anger by the High Lord Mayor of Davenport. A high dudgeon, indeed.
Now Davenport is using the "sue" word, which would most likely send the casino license to Linn County and Cedar Rapids. Those two entities are eager for a license, and have a development group all lined up.
Any bets on how this will turn out?
XKeyscore: National Security Agency proprietary program (copywrited, for sure).
What does it do?
Gathers YOUR emails, social media activity and browsing history. That's right, yours.
If we really, really want to know how many girls Anthony Weiner of New York was chatting up, all we need to do subpoena the National Security Agency records of his escapades.
Wonder if the Agency ever blackmailed him.
Or anyone like him who hasn't been caught yet.
4th Amendment to the Constitution? Illegal search and seizure?
What constitution? We can trust the Obama Regime with everything.
Illinois yesterday joined the rest of the United States. Illinois citizens can now wait until 2014 to legally carry concealed weapons.
Of couse, being Illinois, the state permit to carry will cost three times what the Iowa permit costs.
And, of course, Illinois will not recognize a permit to carry from any other state. If a citizen of Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri, or Minnesota wishes to carry a concealed weapon in Illinois they must fork over $300 and take two full work days of classes for an additional $300. You think many aliens will choose to drop $600 on Illinois?
In addition, the hissy fit by the governor whose amendatory veto was overridden was a delight to behold.
The new law is better than nothing, but it would be nice if Illinois would treat an Iowa concealed carry permit the same way it treats an Iowa driver's license.
The only real smile from the National Security Agency contractor blowing the whistle on the Obama administration for spying on your phones and computer comes from Russia.
The press secretary for the Russian President Vladimir Putin offered political asylum in Russia to the whistleblower.
Can you imagine the grin on Putin's face when he directed the press secretary to go make that offer public?
And you thought the Russians were grim and humorless.
You probably know that the United States of America and the Russian Federation are having trouble with their Muslim populations.
How about England?
Well, the 20 year old soldier in southeast London near the Woolwich Barracks was first hit by a their car and driven up against a pole. Then two Muslims, armed with knives and meat cleavers (British gun laws, remember), jumped from the car and hacked the soldier to death, shouting "Allahu Akhbar (God is Great)" all the while. They tried to behead the young man. They got shot by the cops, but survived.
Gee, one might wonder why the British Isles would have let this bunch immigrate. Actually, their parents had immigrated. The two butchers were born in England.
A final note....British soldiers have now been advised not to wear thier uniforms off base.
You betcha. Obama found the bad guy. And asked for his resignation. He resigned.
How do you resign twice?
You see, the bad guy is the acting commissioner of the IRS, Steven Miller. He hzd already resigned. He was leaving in early June.
Now exactly how do you resign twice?
Is the second resignation letter done in ALL CAPS?
Remember now, the acting director of the IRS didn't even know Obama was president until all this came up.
Isn't sure how often what, you ask.
How often American reporters' phone records have been seized.
What? You mean it wasn't just the Associated Press and their 100 reporters?
"I'm not sure how manuy of those cases...I have actually signed off on. I take them very seriously. I know that I have refused to sign a few."
Really. What a nice man. He refused to sign a few fishing licenses for what reporters are doing. Ever heard of a free press? Guess not.
Stay tuned. This could get really messy. How many of "those cases" has he signed off on. Ever heard of any?
Back in the 1970's, Richard Nixon's problems were called "Nixon Agonistes." Tricky Dick has a new BFF. Obama.
The big one is tapping the phones of the top 100 reporters for the Associated Press. This was done after the Attorney General, Obama's buddy and confidante, personally said to go get the reporters. Try saying your buddy never mentioned that to you.
Then the Tea Party versus the Infernal Revenue Service. Of course, only two secretaries and a janitor knew about that. Except that Ohio, Washington, D.C., and at least two other area offices were doing it. But nobody told the Boss Man.
Then Libya and the dead ambassador. It was that movie, and we still have the producer in jail! The story gets weaker with each revalation, and more revalations are coming.
Nixon's supporters bailed on him over the IRS "Enemies List." Wonder if history could repeat itself.
