There’s something distinctly wingnutty about the party that just lit $ 24 billion on fire in a useless shutdown whining about a few hundred million spent on the Obamacare website. But for the rest of us, by which I mean me, it’s more complex. For starters, computers suck, networks suck, and that’s not a judgement on those of you who make them, it’s a factual observation of what earnings-obsessed CEOs and cash strapped project managers shovel out the door to inflict on us, the using public, every fucking day of the week.

But you know what is a little more like a slow loading healthcare website, happened under the Bush WH, and has also cost in the neighborhood of a trillion tax-bucks? It’s not web pages that time out, like the WordPress edit screen, Youtube, and pretty much every other site I visit on a daily basis. It’s this blast from the recent past: [Read more...]
Let me tell you something about TPS reports … [Read more...]
We are facing virtual Armageddon, the Republic may not survive. It started out as a full frontal assault on America and apple pie, but the situation is even now dire: there is a website on the Internet that is slow to load, it often times out and, worst of all, it is taken down for maintenance on a weekly basis. But some people are getting through: [Read more...]
If you hear a nearby rumble, don’t be worried. It’s just your local Teaparty caving in on itself. Normally these bozos couldn’t care less about losing support among apathetic centrists. But a new poll holds devastating numbers for the extremist yokels: [Read more...]

I just found out that scan has been denied, my PCP will fight it and probably win. After all, all they found was evidence for past chest injury or infection and a touch of pneumonia in the right lung … the real action turned out to be in the blood chemistry. But I don’t know if we’ll win or not, either way it just goes to show fucked up this system is and how badly it needs to be changed.
The Teaparty was right to be afraid. Now they should be very afraid. Obamare is no longer “unpopular” and by some polls is indeed supported by a majority of Americans. Case in point: [Read more...]
Imagine someone ostensibly in a position of knowledge said something utterly incomprehensible. Say for example someone on the board of the American Medical Association quipped that decapitation not only isn’t fatal, it can actually be good for the patient. Nowadays we’d attribute that to some clown seeking page views and Youtube hits. But those kind of crackpots have been with us since the beginning of time. They found a loving home in the modern GOP, most notably in the lucrative fields of anti-science histrionics, which is now bleeding over into pseudo-economics. Thankfully, we may have a reprieve: [Read more...]
