Website Woes Indicate Waste as Obamacare Spending to Skyrocket

This morning, I walked through the rain to work. After arriving at the office, I proceeded to make myself a cup of coffee and log on to my computer.  The first thing I did was visit the Drudge Report to find out the big headline news today. What I found nearly made me throw my coffee at the computer screen.

Ten Shut Down Government Agencies You Didn't Know You Were Missing

Now that we're a little more than a week on from the government shutdown's start, Americans are a beginning to feel the effects of not having a bureaucratic nightmare breathing down their necks as they make all of their major life decisions. Can the governent breathe down our necks while the website that powers the government's own health care plan is still non-functional? Unfortunately, it can.

FreedomCast - Shutdown Theatre and the Petty Antics of the White House

On today’s edition of the FreedomCast, Lachlan Markay joins me to discuss the shutdown theater: the selective closing of national monuments and park grounds, and why some websites such as Michelle Obama’s “Drink Up” campaign site were deemed essential during this partial shutdown, but others were not.

A Modest Proposal For A Proper Shutdown

America deserves a strong leader during the government shutdown, not one who merely allows us to stumble along, doing whatever we want in the middle of the greatest crisis of all time. President Obama should take the threat to his credibility seriously, and not allow Americans to lose sight of the central role of government in their lives.

What Current Affairs Reveal About Education

It’s as if current events are working together to reform education, or, at the very least, to make it evident to all Americans why reform needs to happen. Between the current government shutdown and the looming debt ceiling, it’s becoming more evident every day that the safest place for education is as far away from the federal government as possible.

Make No Mistake, This is Harry Reid's Shutdown

Make no mistake, this is no longer a Washington where President Obama is always in charge. On Capitol Hill the man in charge is Harry Reid. No question about it. President Obama has handed over the reins of leadership on government funding and the debt limit to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). Reid is now fully in charge of his party’s negotiating strategy, a significant change from past showdowns with Republicans.

Shutdown Theater Continues, AMBER Alert Site Redirected

Yesterday, it was noted that the AMBER Alert site run by the Department of Justice appeared to be the latest victim of the government shutdown. The AMBER Alert system instantly alerts local communities of child abductions. Attempting to check out the AMBER Alert site, results in this notification:

Harry Reid Holds NIH Funding Hostage

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) responded to a question about funding for children's cancer research by asking, "Why would we do that?" Republicans pounced on the remark as evidence that Reid cared less for sick children than for his own partisan position. While Reid tried to recover from the gaffe, what he says he really meant was just as bad, or perhaps worse: he wanted to fund cancer trials, but wouldn't unless the House accepted everything else he wanted. In effect, he is holding every program hostage until he gets his way.

Government Shutdown: Hold the Line, the Media Wasn't Going to Like Us Anyway

As we spent the last few weeks chugging inexorably toward the Great Shutdown Showdown of '13, we were constantly warned by our betters in the GOP to avoid it at all costs because "ZOMG THE PRESS WILL SAY BAD STUFF AND...STUFF!" Those of is operating in a more reality-based corner of the planet asked ourselves, "When do they ever say anything good about us?" Ad then the crickets became rather deafening.

Seven Pictures from the WWII Memorial Shutdown

They don't call these men the "Greatest Generation" for nothing. They fought back the Nazis in Germany and defended their nation against the Kamikaze pilots of Japan. They weren't about to let a few barricades at their WWII Memorial stop them from paying tribute to their fellow servicemen who gave their lives for their nation.
