A Colossal Failure

***Obamacare is imploding. Today a federal judge dealt another blow.

A year has passed since Americans were first told to enroll in Obamacare, or else. The Obamacare website has been a fiasco, with enormous security failures, and a year later there are as many Americans without insurance as ever.
The legal foundation of Obamacare continues to crumble like a month-old cookie. Another federal judge, acting as though words actually have meaning, decreed that if President Obama wants to correct his mistakes, he’ll have to change the words in a new law.
From his courtroom in Muskogee, Okla., Judge Ronald A. White cited the binding precedent in his circuit, the 10th, that holds that the government must not be allowed creative license to reinvent the law, which would be a mistake that “leads us down a path toward Alice’s Wonderland, where up is down and down is up, and words mean anything.”

 Nice to know there are still some judges with common sense and judicial restraint. Such a quaint idea, upholding the law as written. Reinventing Obamacare is exactly what Obama has been doing; changing existing law according to his whims, without the consent of Congress. Pssstt....that's unconstitutional and illegal. What does he care? He gets away with it most of the time. This time, anyway, he didn't.

***The way things are in Obama's military: U.S. Navy sailors harbor "widespread mistrust" in the admirals who command them. Who can blame them?

The independent survey was released amid complaints by some aviators about excessive political correctness as the military seeks to stamp out sexual harassment and misconduct in an increasingly gender-integrated Navy.
“Most troubling is the perception sailors hold of senior leadership,” the report says under the heading “Widespread Distrust of Senior Leadership.”

“Sailors feel strongly about their distrust of senior leadership, and believe the Navy has a significant risk-averse culture and zero-defect mentality,” the report says. “Officers in particular hold an incredibly negative view of the current state of affairs, with vast majorities decrying the overwhelming perception of a risk averse and zero-defect mentality culture.”

 Political correctness is hogwash. It's a way for liberals to silence anyone they disagree with.

***Anybody else ready for fall decorations? I haven't had time to do it yet, but that's what I'll be doing this weekend, during my breaks from typing, of course. Fall decorations are my favorite! Mark already has some mums outside, we'll be going to get some pumpkins this weekend. I have lots of pretty things to decorate inside with. I love knick-knacks!

***The picture of class. George W. Bush, in spite of being blamed for everything that has gone wrong in the Obama administration, does not return fire in his Fox News interview. He gave his opinion without resorting to mewling and whining, as our current president does every time. What a contrast.

"Americans have got to understand that the lesson of 9/11 is still important today as it was right after 9/11, and that is the human condition elsewhere matters to our national security," he said.
Bush said he agreed with Obama's military advisers that the U.S. should have left a residual force when it pulled out at the end of 2011.
But he said he's not going to "second-guess our president -- I understand how tough the job is."
