Queen Sebelius has made yet another decree, this time stating that the Pit of Despair (otherwise known as the Healthcare.gov website) is 100% safe.
Take THAT, all you Obamacare h8ers:
(via Yahoo News) – On Capitol Hill on Tuesday, a panel of computer security experts raised another fear — that the website is vulnerable to hacking. They said they wouldn’t trust their own personal information to the site, although they acknowledged they don’t have firsthand knowledge of the system and its architecture.
In our culture today, especially with Washington partisans trying to spin facts into opinions and opinions into falsehoods, I believe more than ever that we need to strongly remind everyone when we’re right about something.
Admittedly, we’re usually right about stuff here, but sometimes we’re even more right than normal.
Case in point: Obamacare. We’ve been doing our best Howard Beale impression when discussing it, forever. Yet even with the entire Tea Party and more than a few GOP members on our side, we were ignored.
Which is why I’m attaching a post I wrote waaaay back at the start of this year. You can decide for yourself if, in light of recent events, it was accurate or not.

The lie that Liberals are telling themselves these days:
Lefty spinners have been out in force this week, trying to not only put some lipstick on the Obamacare pig, but a cocktail dress, earrings and pumps, as well.
However, it seems to be having the opposite effect, which makes perfect sense. After all, you can argue ’til you’re as blue-in-the-face as a Smurf, and folks’ll still figure out that paying hundreds or thousands more each year for insurance is NOT the same as “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan…“.

Speaking as a longtime insurance professional, whenever I hear barely-functional idiots like Sebelius discuss insurance, it kinda’ makes my skin itch:
For several weeks now, the mantra that we keep hearing from Obamacare’s cheerleaders has been “give it a chance; it’s only just started“. Which is fair, to a point: it has just started, …and it’s been a frustrating, miserable disaster unlike anything which would be allowed to continue in the free market.
However, no matter how many chances we give, this can’t work for one very basic reason: government bureaucrats are in charge of it. And when those people are in charge of anything, the very last thing you can expect is excellence, at least as a private sector entity would define “excellence”.
“The product is good. The health insurance that’s being provided is good.
It’s high quality, and it’s affordable. People can save money, significant money, by getting insurance that’s being provided through these marketplaces.” – (Pres. B. Obama, 10-21-13)
Is it just me, or was the President’s speech yesterday eerily reminiscent of another famously truth-challenged pitchman:

For about the thousandth time since the 2012 election, let me say it again: “Thanks, Lefties“.
Old insurance guys like me instinctively knew that Obamacare would be a disaster for our nation, but not you guys. Oh, no: you insisted it’d be awesome! How’s that working out so far, …hmmm?!?
To be fair, even the most hardcore skeptics thought the Federal Government might possibly have the basic machinery in place in order to operate the Exchanges, prior to opening.
The website is the EASIEST part, after all: it’s the bare minimum level of demonstrable competence. But c’mon: praising the Government for having their website running smoothly from the start would be like congratulating a new hamburger stand for actually having hamburgers available on Day #1.
And the Obama Administration couldn’t even get that figured out?? “Smart Power”, my fanny…
This really doesn’t require any commentary from me:
However, I’ll also share with you Chip Bok’s rather similar take:
