I just can’t help it

I am not a highly political person.

It isn’t that I don’t care. I do.

The reason I don’t like to talk about politics is this: Arguing about politics makes little difference to anything. Arguing does, however, raise everyone’s blood pressure and that isn’t good if you are of a certain age. No one wins. Politics is all about winning.

So I just can’t help myself about this business at hand.

Here’s the thing about this “Affordable” Care Act. The computer’s website doesn’t work. It doesn’t. We all have October until March to sign up and already the entire month of October is a wash out because NO ONE can sign up.

Think about this number: $600,000,000. Six Hundred Million dollars! That is what has already been spent on making this website work. Our money, yours and mine, that is gone, done, flushed.

(Wasn’t there some money go missing from Iraq when we were looking for Saddam? I believe it was less than $600,000,000. So Obama trumped Bush on spending losses here. Does that mean he won?)

The experts have spent weeks and weeks looking for the problem. They haven’t found it.

Here is my take on this: The website will never work for OBAMA-CARE as it stands today. Why? Because computers are logical. They work on logic. They run on logic.

Apparently OBAMA-CARE does not compute.

My prediction is that somehow this massive failure will be the fault of the Republicans.

Perhaps we should all just eat more fiber.
