Astonishment

Had this exchange on Twitter back on the 7th:



Today, we find out that enrollment for the first day was six.  Six.  Six people enrolled the first day.

This is beyond parody.

Six.  People.

This has to set a record for government incompetence.  What's your opinion on the rollout debacle, Vice President Joe Biden?

“We assumed that it was up and ready to run, but the good news is that although it’s not, and we apologize for that, we’re confident that by the end of November it will be and there will still be plenty of time for people to register to get online.”

...the f$%k? You ASSUMED? You and the President, the top of our government, regarding legislation that would define the regime and reorganize 1/5 of the greatest economy the world has ever seen just sat back and thought everything was just peachy-keen?  Never checked up on it for 3.5 years?

You can bet your ass that if something is amiss in our President's fundraising schedule he would know within microseconds.

Oh, and does the whole "it'll be ready by the end of the month" promise just not resonate?

If this isn't the justification for smaller, less involved government I don't know what is.  These people are flatworms with incredible power.

TITANS (-3) at Rams
PACKERS (-11) vs Bears

MUSIC
I was very depressed to hear of the passing of Lou Reed this past weekend.  His music just means a great deal to me.  Two songs:
