Jack, you do have a way with words...

"...the train wreck moving forword..."

I had a great time imagining this, complete with groans and sighs of twisted, steaming metal inching forword. LOL

Now here's something for the other 1/2 brain...

billllllygitmo c/p'd the phrase from Joshua DuBois's new book "The President's Devotional." The entry about Sandy Hook was featured in press releases and on amazon.

Never let a miscommunication go to waste, huh, billlllygitmo?

"Joshua writes a regular religion column for The Daily Beast and has authored several cover stories for Newsweek magazine, including The Secret Faith of Washington and the landmark piece, The Fight for Black Men. He regularly speaks about faith, culture, race and reconciliation, and has been featured on CNN, MSNBC, in the New York Times, Washington Post and elsewhere. Joshua also leads a new consulting firm, Values Partnerships, that helps private and nonprofit institutions partner with the faith community to solve big challenges.

"Joshua graduated from Boston University and Princeton University, and is a native of Nashville, Tennessee. He lives in Washington D.C. with his new wife, Michelle and their crazy little dog, Cinco."

The Sandy Hook episode was related by Joshua DuBois in his new book, "The President's Devotional" released on 10-22-13.

From book's description on amazon...

"President Obama's "Pastor-in-Chief" (TIME Magazine) and longtime spiritual advisor, Joshua DuBois led the White House faith-based initiative during Obama's first term, and served with the President for years before that. He is one of our country's top leaders, speakers and writers on how to live out faith and values, and strengthen our communities, in an increasingly busy world...."

RR's little article is found in Daily Current, as snopes said...

"As noted in the Daily Currant's "About" page, that web site deals strictly in satire:

"The Daily Currant is an English language online satirical newspaper that covers global politics, business, technology, entertainment, science, health and media.

"Q. Are your news stories real?

"A. No. Our stories are purely fictional. However they are meant to address real-world issues through satire and often refer and link to real events happening in the world."

Thus, we know how to take RR's posts...as fiction, "meant to address real-world issues through satire."

No worries. Should I consider the "Peace and Semper Fidelis" a satirical comment too?

'It is true that millions of Americans who lack insurance now will get it through Obamacare. But it also is true that millions of others will be hurt by the program.'. MDN

People getting health insurance... meh People paying a bit more for health insurance... OMG!

From snopes...

"Lest there be any more confusion, we note here that the National Report is a web site that publishes outrageous fictional stories such as "IRS Plans to Target Leprechauns Next," "Boy Scouts Announce Boobs Merit Badge," and "New CDC Study Indicates Pets of Gay Couples Worse at Sports, Better at Fashion Than Pets of Straight Couples." The National Report's (since removed) disclaimer page notes that: National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news. Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental."

No wonder RR reads and disperses this tripe...

"If it's possible, be polite to those who don't agree with you."

"Been thinking loco that I certainly could be more polite in my responses to you...I'll make an effort!"

"Now I suppose that was too abusive for some of the sensitive libs around here..."

If that isn't vanilla-speak, I don't know what is! Yowza...

So we found out that there are about 55 different government agencies and civilian contractors who worked on the website, and everyone puts the blame on someone else but not them. The whole gist of the problem is this: "What we have here is a failure to communicate!" With that many people and/or companies working on 1 site, something was bound to go wrong and this is costing taxpayers a whole bunch of money.

"National Report?"

I think RR's recent posts are more like the National Enquirer than anything DustOff posts.

Hope nobody's feelings got hurt....

RR, do you think people actually take your "National Report Exclusive" posts seriously?

What caliber of people are you hoping to impress with this tripe?

Now I suppose that was too abusive for some of the sensitive libs around here...

Maybe we should instead just skip the software and talk about how Minot is in a very bad situation with feezeup occurring with fields saturated and the dikes are in bad shape and not much of anything really seems to be getting done to fix anything that protects Minot. Most of the work seems to have been done to encourage as many as possible to rebuild the floodplain. This is really important and possibly something could be done about this, but no let's rant day after day about Obama.

You know it's pretty hard to do much about the website nor working. I'm trying to remember the complaints of the MDN about the software to determine Medicaid eligibility in ND taking extra years and many million. Or that the Secretary of State took many years and millions to try and get it so you could fill out forms online. All this while other state agencies had software already that let people fill out forms online. Shall we talk about how long it took for people to get license plates for their cars? I guess not since all those are run by Republicans and it's close enough that the MDN readership actually could possibly do something about it.

There are 46 million people on food stamps, so their names are there in the food stamp files, so the US fed gov agriculture department website should be able to share those files with the health care gov website.

The 46 million receiving food stamps should be automatically enrolled in Obummercare, be subsequently billed and their SNAP benefits applied to their health care costs, which means they won't be receiving any food stamps because it becomes a wash.

In Iraq it was food for oil, in the US, it is food for healthcare. If you don't pay for your healthcare, you don't eat.

Obamacare is the most inhumane act of legislation ever devised by an uncaring Congress that has no compassion for humans whatsoever.

A completely retarded effort to launch Obamacare speaks volumes.

It is dead on arrival.

Why can't the files at the IRS provide all of the information necessary, why do people have to enroll?

Not that many have enrolled, so it might be a massive boycott in the works.

Nobody wants anything to do with Omama care?

I agree, how can they say the website is safe when it doesn't even work.

I'm from the government and I'm here to help you.
