Anyone else see the problem with EBT recently?  No... I'm not going to point out the obvious technical problem... but instead about how people reacted to the problem:


1)  Some of the people that got denied access threatened to riot....


2) When when some stores couldn't confirm card limits, some of those people loved it so much, they completely emptied the shelves of some stores.



Just more "free" stuff to those who feel they're entitled.


Now... take this same entitlement mentality and change it from the EBT to Obamacare....


(sarcasm)But of course... people are just entitled to "free" stuff... no matter what!(/sarcasm)  I really wish people would understand how much damage this causes.

Have to laugh at how bad the Obamacare website is... developed using decade old technology.  Sounds exactly like where Obama wants to take our medical care system.

Reading an article that has some Obama quotes:


“Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”


“Every dollar we pay in interest is a dollar that is not going to investment in America’s priorities. Instead, interest payments are a significant tax on all Americans — a debt tax that Washington doesn’t want to talk about.”


 


But those quotes are from Senator Obama.... Where is that guy?  What happened to those principles?

New record for Obama: 90,609,000


According to BLS, that's the number of Americans (16 years or older) who have decided not to participate in the nation's labor force (September 2013 data.)

Was reading the latest Barron's and saw a quote in the Market Watch section:


"What they did do is agree to a process whereby they could avoid being statesmen, avoid being leaders, avoid making the hard choices, and avoid putting the interest of 'We' as a Nation first." -- Mike Alfstad, Profentia


 


Note: This was not just to Obama specifically, but to Congress & the White House.

Census Bureau: Means-Tested Gov't Benefit Recipients Outnumber Full-Time Year-Round Workers


Basically, as of that report, there are 1.07 people receiving welfare for every 1 person working full time.... but..... the number of workers include federal workers.  This means that the number is skewed even more as those federal workers are paid with tax dollars coming from non-federal working citizens.

Yea... good description of Obama.


 


But this is 10-Forward where non-Trek related topics are discussed.  And remember, much of Star Trek discussed social/political issues.  Growing up watching Star Trek, I learned a lot that had nothing to do with science fiction.

How the heck else you gonna stop and then prevent criminal infiltration? Use your brain. Sometimes you have no choice but to fight fire with fire to put a wildfire blazing in the wind out. Plus, the mentioned intelligence have the guts to admit to their actions without being intimidated or embarrassed. No shame no blame.

So ignoring the Constitution and a myriad of laws is the answer?  Don't get me wrong - there is a time for surveillance of someone suspsected of criminal activity, but there are Constitutionally legal ways of doing this.  The NSA illegally spying on everyone (general populace) is specifically against the Constitution.  And there are laws regarding what the NSA is and isn't allowed to do.  The NSA's mission is specifically stipulated as for foreign intelligence and counterintelligence - not domestic... but that's not stopping our government now.


This country created a government whose job was to protect the rights of the citizens, not destroy our rights.  The government MUST follow the laws; doing otherwise is the very tyranny that we threw off!

In the background, I've been kind of watching what Obama has been doing to our military.  One thing I've noticed what seemed to be a large number of senior officers that Obama has just gotten rid of, often without any explanation whatsoever.  I started doing a little research and found that about 200 senior level officers have been canned by the Obama regime.  (And that doesn't count the number of people that have left due to Obama's policies.)
