Missing the Point of ObamaCare: It isn't about a functional website

"The website has never crashed. It is functional but at a very slow speed and very low reliability," Sebelius acknowledged. Beautiful. Don't blame Obama the First. Blame me. Fantastic theatre. But, it is simply to take eyes off the ultimate issue: The government will provide all health care. Think VA (Veteran's Administration). Think Post Office. Failures by central planners and Collectivists always are because of not enough resources, not enough control. The answer to failed ObamaCare will be MORE centralized control. This doesn't end with those involved dusting off their hands and saying, "Wow. That was a bad idea and it failed. Lets go with a free-market solution." It was ALWAYS their plan to co-opt, subjugate, and/or ruin the insurance companies and providers. Then take over completely.

Simple Economics from our Socialist in Chief

---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Jon Carson, Date: Thu, Aug 8, 2013 at 11:31 AM Subject: Do you want to raise the minimum wage? To: John Galt Organizing for Action This is just awful: The current minimum wage is $7.25 per hour -- and if you work 40 hours per week making minimum wage, you're only making $14,500 per year. That's well below the poverty line. President Obama is calling on Congress to raise the minimum wage -- and today OFA supporters are getting behind him and other allied organizations to take on this fight. If you agree that it's time for working Americans to get a raise, then add your name today. President Obama said it best: "No one who works full-time in America should have to live in poverty." The President's plan will give 15 million American workers a much-needed raise. For many, it will be their first raise since the last minimum-wage increase back in 2009 -- and go a long way towards helping full-time minimum wage earners pay rent and put food on the table. It makes sense for businesses, too. Maybe this is simple economics, but it seems pretty obvious that when workers make more money, they buy more products and services. If you want to be part of this work, start with something simple -- say that you support raising the minimum wage today: Thanks -- more to come, Jon Jon Carson Executive Director Organizing for Action ---------------- The other side will spend millions to maintain the status quo. We're fighting for change -- chip in $5 or more to support OFA today.

Mikhail Gorbachev: the Margaret Thatcher I knew

A sad day today.  Respectful comments from a former adversary.  Gorbachev is the only remaining of the four key people (Reagan, Thatcher, Gorbachev, Pope John Paul) that brought the cold war to a peaceful close.
