Leave Obamacare Alone!

Let it be implemented! 

Allow the American public feel the pain of hope and change. Allow them to show their gratitude to the Democratic Party for ramming it down the throats of the nation. The Republican Party has acted in the nation's best interests in an attempt to repeal this train wreck with all due warnings and attempts, but Obama wants it and so do his minions. Let them have it, and I hope that the public enjoys those $12,000 deductibles (California) on top of high monthly payments. 

Forbes came out with an interesting report. 
A growing consensus of IT experts, outside and inside the government, have figured out a principal reason why the website for Obamacare’s federally-sponsored insurance exchange is crashing. Healthcare.gov forces you to create an account and enter detailed personal information before you can start shopping. This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government verifies your information and decides whether or not you’re eligible for subsidies. HHS bureaucrats knew this would make the website run more slowly. But they were more afraid that letting people see the underlying cost of Obamacare’s insurance plans would scare people away.
Remember the past. Recall that Obama and his regime are first and foremost LIARS. The "Affordable Care Act of 2010" is not affordable. It will raise rates across the board as rich insurance companies become just that much richer.
(Forbes article continues)...the cheapest plan offered in a given state, under Obamacare, will be 99 percent more expensive for men, and 62 percent more expensive for women, than the cheapest plan offered under the old system. And those disparities are even wider for healthy people.
Unhappy that your work week hours were reduced to 29? Chalk it up to hope and change.


Socialized healthcare is not only about "social justice". It's about control over you and every aspect of your lives. 

Alaska's not drinking the Kool-Aid. According to the Anchorage Daily News, In the two weeks since ObamaCare went live, not a single individual in the entire state of Alaska has signed up.

Congress is not drinking the Kool-Aid. Well of course they aren't. They're exempt. How convenient is that? They don't need to worry about the provisions of ObamaCare impacting their precious lives.




Secret Lair (Rule 5)

Potential lair site - accessible by submarine into
secret grotto.
It would be nice to have a secret lair, though my definition would fit Naval Support Facility Thurmont, also known as 'Camp David' (Catoctin Mountain Park near Thurmont, Maryland) more than the Dr. No style laboratory sited in an extinct volcano. Extinct volcanos have an uncomfortable tendency of becoming partially active and then all that work is for nought. The Camp David model never shuts down even if the government does and the American public pays all of the bills associated with keeping the lair running. 

Both Camp David and the Dr. No secret lairs don't appear on maps.

Mobile lair (self propelled). Only works in very
high and low latitudes. If I loitered off the Hawaiian
Islands, it would be noticed.
However, since I won't be elected US President anytime soon, I will have to seek the ultimate bat cave on my own. I have rejected the Dr. No solution as set forth above in paragraph one.

The concept of an island (fixed lair) or a simulated iceberg (mobile lair) have their own appeal, each for a different reason. 

The Swedish Navy has a lair for their ships and I'd be willing to assume control of it if the Swedes would let it go. (unlikely) I like Swedish women and there is an inexhaustible supply in Sweden - having a maul is essential to having a lair. After all, what use is the lair without a beautiful 'assistant'?

Swedish Navy's lair - complete with beautiful companions

Now that I've defined the parameters for the physical lair and the staffing, I need to move on with the activities that will go on at the lair, but that's none of your business.
