This morning I went on healthcare.gov to check on my account. I was able to get an account last Saturday, 4 days ago. It is still “in progress” and so I cannot see what is available beyond it. There is also some kind of message it says is there concerning marketplace eligibility, but I cannot see it or read it. So I am stuck. Went to chat to see what was going on. Talked with someone called Raven. Is that name made up?
She said that sometimes the pop-up blocker causes issues. Not cookies, but the pop-up blocker. I went and took off the blocker. Why would a computer program want you to disable a security feature. According to eHow, a pop-up blocker is a security measure.
Pop up blockers can help prevent your computer from receiving unwanted spyware or ads that could possibly harm your system. By allowing it to block ads, you can control the type of windows that are allowed to be viewed on your computer. It can help you from clicking on links that could possibly spread a virus, adware or spyware on your computer.
I will try to go back on tomorrow if my computer hasn’t gotten infected with a virus because I took down the pop-up blocker.
When I asked Raven how long it takes to go from “in process” to done, she couldn’t help me and told me to try back every few days to check on it. Great answer. Keep trying. OK.

SHALLOW and VULNERABLE
Today, Obama called in a whole bunch of bigwig bankers for a meeting (photo-op). Many are under threat of fines and prosecution by Obama’s Justice Dept. so they came a runnin’. After Obama asked them to back his position on the Government shutdown, they came out and spoke with the press. The take away on this is when the banker said that the ”recovery is shallow and vulnerable” and could not withstand an assault like the shutdown. Why is this ongoing weakest recovery unable to withstand any assault? Because Obama has done everything to make this recovery the weakest ever and he doesn’t understand that he creates headwinds the economy must fight, like Dodd-Frank, Obamacare, the Humongous Stimulus filled with green boondoggles that didn’t do anything good. Throw in raised taxes and further uncertainty and the economy (fed by crack from the Federal Reserve) keeps dragging on the bottom. Way to go, Pres. Obama. Good job. Weakest “Recovery” Evah!

Watched the latest press conference on the Naval Yard shooter. FBI lady told us to go to FBI.gov to see shooter. Went there and can’t see pics of that shooter. I can see pics of Boston Bombers, articles on ’63 Birmingham Church Bombing, and some more stuff on recent serial killer guys. If you tell us to go to FBI.gov, make sure the pics are front and center, easy to find.

Now that Obama has dithered for so long, announcement today that we are sending some equipment into Syria. Obama has finally decided that his red line has been crossed.
Why has Obama waited until 93,000 have been killed? Because of Libya. He waltzed into Libya, sent weapons to Libya, and got an American Ambassador and 3 others killed. Libya took too long and didn’t stay fixed.
So now, he has to do something. Now that Russia, Hezbollah, and Iran are backing up Asad. Great move, Pres. Obama. That is some real bravery.
While I note that is no good options in Syria, Obama has taken a bad thing and bungled it mightily.

I do hope we all have a happy and prosperous New Year. I don’t have much hope for that now that Obama will be with us for another 4 years.

Over the last several days, we have been privileged to see another of our sons take his place in the military. He has made it through Air Force Basic and is now starting his career in the military. All three of our sons are now serving our Country and our way of life. There is a chance that all three could be deployed in this coming year.
All three of our sons are Eagle Scouts, College Grads, and now serve in the military. They are all wonderful, smart, and handsome.

I have been becoming more optimistic about a Romney/Ryan win. But I still worry a lot. New evidence is seen each day when I watch the Five on Fox. Bob Beckel is so bummed, I think he knows people that are saying it. It is a bit sad, but I want Bob to be super-bummed for the next 8 years.

The actual unemployment figure is really about 15%. 96,000 found jobs last month. That is another miserable number that can’t even keep up with population growth. To lower the number 8.2 to 8.1, many people had to stop looking for work, give up, fade away, cry, dance, and die (thanks to Elizabeth Warren). Evidently if everyone who is unemployed stops looking for work, the number will drop again.
I am stupid. We have fewer people working than when PresBO took office. Every week, 300,000 plus people file for the first time for unemployment. That is over a million per month. Then we have miserable jobs numbers like 96,000 new jobs. Doesn’t that mean that over a million people are added to the rolls of unemployed. How can the unemployment percentage go down when this happens.

So, now the Dems boo God and Jews and stand by as their Hispanic Bigwig ignores the will of the delegates who evidently favor something other than God and the Jews. Now a radio host has gone in and given us more about your average delegate and their silly views on business. Only, it isn’t just your average delegate, this “profits are bad” meme is Obama at his best. You didn’t build that, the government did, and shouldn’t there be a cap on profits so the government gets more money to spread to our friends and supporters. The link to the video is here.
Watch it if you have a few minutes. I can’t watch the whole thing because Obama was supposed to fix my internet with his ginormous stimulus, but the money was wasted on other things like Solyndra and a soap opera that you can only see on the internet .

First, someone contracts, without bid process, to designer Ralph Lauren, noted Democratic donor and Obama supporter, to design the uniforms for our Olympic team. He designs some pretty awful, militaristic suits with berets. He charges exorbitant prices. $800
500 for blazers, $500 400 for skirts, etc. Then they are produced in China. Now the Dems are mad. Harry Reid wants them burned. Chuck Shumer is pissed. The Dems outsource the USA Olympic uniforms. This is so funny.
Ralph Lauren says the next Olympic uniforms will be made in America. Will they cost more or less than the current ripoff? Does he have a lock on the next Olympic uniforms? Why does he think he will make the next uniforms?
I am also amused at the descriptions I have heard for the uniforms. Someone said military meets Che Guevara. As a supporter of the military, I do not think that Olympic uniforms should have militaristic overtones.
