ObamaCare a Complete Failure, May Prove to Bring About Peoples' Salvation from Over-reaching Government

Let's face it, ObamaCare, the health insurance mandate that all Americans MUST purchase, is an unmitigated disaster which, thankfully, threatens to bring down the entire government health care apparatus, and hopefully, the rest of the government with it.

The hits just keep coming for ObamaCare.

On Sunday, a major data hub failed, once again making the website,, inoperable.

Maybe the worst design flaw of ObamaCare is not the website, which hasn't worked since its rollout, October 1, but the soaring deductibles under the Affordable Care Act.

Experts are also questioning the security of the government's health care site, wherein customer data, including social security numbers, bank accounts and credit card information, can be easily hacked and stolen.

More lawmakers, including a swath of Democrats are now beginning to call for extensions to the "mandatory" filing deadlines, while others still are calling for the resignation of Health & Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

Members of the House Oversight Committee have sent letters to 11 of the companies involved with design and implementation of, threatening subpoenas if the companies don't supply the information promptly.

With any luck, the administration, in its abject refusal to release data about the botched rollout of the President's signature social program, may trigger a constitutional crisis, which would play right into the hands of both sides, who do nothing and prefer to shut down the government rather than deal with issues of importance to the American people.

How long it will take for people in America to stop complying with demands from an out-of-control, opaque, oppressive government that continues to operate outside the rigors of the constitution is unknown, but one thing is for sure: Obamacare is pushing the limits of people's patience.

On the other hand, the American public has so far tolerated rigged elections, countless government lies, being spied upon by the NSA, the closure of national parks and monuments, $17 trillion in debt, trillions more in unfunded liabilities, so maybe nothing will change until cities are drone-struck and people hauled off to FEMA camps.

In unrelated news, the artificially-life-supported stock indices continue to display symptoms of atrophy at or close to all-time highs. Volume remains at distressed levels, but that's what you get when the same computer algos trade the same stocks, day-in and day-out, ad nauseum, forever. Crash is an optimistic outcome.

Another Tesla exploded into flames a week ago (unreported), and Lou Reed is dead.

Disgust? It's what's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, these days.
