SNL Rips HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius & the Falied Obamacare Website Launch … “Millions of Americans of Americans are visiting Healthcare.gov … Unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time”

Even Saturday Night Live could not ignore the disastrous train-wreck launch of the Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov …

SNL ripped HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and the Obamacare launch in their opening skit, “now a lot of folks have been talking about our new healthcare enrollment website. How it’s been crashing and freezing and shutting down and stalling and not working and breaking and sucking”. In the skit Sebelius went on to make excuses for the delays and slow running, malfunctioning site, “we’re probably just loaded with traffic. Millions of Americans of Americans are visiting Healthcare.gov, which is great news. Unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time”.

The skit was just amazingly brutal to the screw up that has been the Obamacare website launch. However, it is not like 60% of Americans do not think it was a joke already. As brutal as the skit was, it could have been even worse.

However, what is sad is that SNL could have just repeated verbatim comments made by Sebelius HERE and HERE, Barack Obama and Press Sec. Jay Carney. To make matters worse Barack Obama gave out the telephone number to call if individuals could not access the website and … wait for it, wait for it … the phones were busy and gave messages referring people back to the failed website. You just can’t make this stuff up.

University of Colorado Boulder Political Correctness … Tells Students Not to Wear Offensive Costumes including Cowboys, Indians or White Trash for Halloween

Good grief, are you kidding me … exactly how is it offensive to dress up like a cowboy or Indian?

The University of Colorado at Boulder is warning students not to dress up in Halloween costumes that are “offensive” and might make some people feel uncomfortable. UNREAL. The PC nonsense has now provided a war on Halloween. Offensive? What is offensive is the narrow-mindedness of the liberal hierarchy at CU and the lack of any sense of humor. You can’t have party themes or dress up like cowboys, Indians, white trash, ghetto or hillbillies. Nor themes of crime or sex work. Good grief!  What ever happened to people just having fun and be able to laugh? Let’s face it, there is always some one that will be offended by something. Especially in this day and age of “weeniness.” Just curious, how do you know you are not offending witches, goblins, ghosts, vampires and other ghouls by the costumes you wear, HMM?

I am guessing if they dress up like Barack Obama in an unflattering way that it will be grounds for dismissal.

Costumes you will not see at CU this Halloween for a multitude of reasons …

Cowgirl

Nor This …

Indian costume

University students in America have been told not to wear “offensive” halloween costumes including cowboys, indians and anything involving a sombrero.

Students at the University of Colorado Boulder have also been told to avoid “white trash” costumes and anything that portrays a particular culture as “over-sexualised”- which the university says includes dressing up as a geisha or a “squaw” (indigenous woman).

They are also asked not to host parties with offensive themes including those with “ghetto” or “hillbilly” themes or those associated with “crime or sex work.”

In the letter sent by a university official students are asked to consider the impact that their costumes could have.

Christina Gonzales, the dean of students, wrote: “Making the choice to dress up as someone from another culture, either with the intention of being humorous or without the intention of being disrespectful, can lead to inaccurate and hurtful portrayals of other people’s cultures.

I wonder if the University of Colorado officials think its ok for students to dress up like Conservatives and have anti-Tea Party themes?

BTW, get a life and a sense of humor.

SNL Rips Obamacare, “Winners and Losers” … Healthcare.gov: “How could you not be ready? That’s like 1-800-Flowers getting caught off-guard by Valentines Day.”

What makes this skit on Obamacare so funny … the fact that it is the truth!!!

Even SNL could not overlook the colossal failures of the Obamacare website this week in ‘Winners & Loser.’ Skip to the 1:00 mark unless you want to hear the usual dribble of the liberal media attacking the GOP and demonizing the Tea Party. One of the Losers for the week was Obamacare and the Healthcare.gov web site for its numerous technical issues and failures. And just think, for years SNL said that they had no material on Obama to make jokes. Go figure.

“You can’t campaign on the fact that millions don’t have healthcare and then be surprised that millions don’t have healthcare. How could you not be ready? That’s like 1-800-Flowers getting caught off-guard by Valentines Day.”

Attention Jedi’s … Star Wars Lightsabers Have Finally Been Invented

May the force be with you …

How cool is this, The Guardian is reporting that scientists have discovered how to make a lightsaber. Well, at least the technology for the light aspect of the saber, it appears they still need to build the actual weapon and produce the THHHHHHWWWWOM sound made when wielding a lightsaber.

Wannabe Jedi Knights rejoice, for scientists have discovered that the famous lightsaber weapon wielded by Luke Skywalker and his ilk in the long-running space opera saga might one day exist beyond the realms of fiction.

Harvard and MIT physicists writing in the new edition of Nature say they have discovered a way to bind photons together in order to form a new molecule which behaves almost exactly like George Lucas’s deadly devices.

“Most of the properties of light we know about originate from the fact that photons are massless and do not interact,” said Harvard university physics professor Mikhail Lukin. “What we have done is create a special type of medium in which photons interact with each other so strongly that they act as though they have mass, and bind together to form molecules.

Inexplicably, reports suggest that physicists have not yet begun the process of using the technology to build actual lightsaber-style weapons, nor have they perfected the THHHHHHWWWWOM! sound traditionally manifested when duelling Jedis do battle.

Too Funny, But Very Sad as Well … Passing a Joint Scores Higher than Passing the Collection Plate in Church … “This is When You Know We’re Going to Hell”

This might be one of the funniest moments ever in ‘Family Feud’ but boy doesn’t it speak volumes of just how far our society has fallen. What happened to us? The question was, name something that gets passed around? Unbelievably there were more “weed heads” than people that go to church.

The host was looking for some saving, but passing the joint scored higher than the collection plate at church. YIKES!

Barack Obama Photo Used As Target In Dart Game At Otsego County, NY Fair … Of Course Liberals Whined and Pic was Pulled

WHAT RACISM!!!

The HuffPo is reporting that a picture of President Barack Obama was used as a target in a dart game at the Otsego County Fair in Morris, New York. Of course it did not take long before the news got out of the individuals running this game of the Obamamessiah’s likeness being used for they were asked to remove it.

Does that mean they are going to stop the Obama clown face painting booth as well?

Obama_clown

Of course the Libs at the Huffpo were quick to blame racism and make other comments making fun of fair go’ers in update New York. Of course it would have been perfectly ok to use a likeness of GWB or Sarah Palin. Because the even-keeled Libs had no issue which a movie that promoted the assignation of Bush, but how dare there be a harmless dart game where people can throw a dart at a pic of Obama at a county fair.

Facebook - Otsego County Fair

There is no racism here folks. Having a pic of Obama to throw darts at is no different when you want your boss to participate in the pie throwing contest. Although, with how Obama administration and the IRS has gone after the Tea Party, the owners of this fair can expect audits from now until 2016, constant NSA surveillance and a Secret Service to visit.

Charles “Chuck” Foley, the Inventor of Iconic Party Game Twister Dies at Age 82

Say it isn’t so …

Charles “Chuck” Foley, the inventor of the iconic and one of the greatest party games ever, Twister, has died at the age of 82. Foley died July 1 at a care facility in the Minneapolis suburb of St. Louis Park. According to his son, his father had been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. The game  was originally called ‘Pretzel,’ but when they sold it to Milton Bradley, they came up with the name ‘Twister’. The game became an overnight sensation after Johnny Carson and Eva Gabor played it on “The Tonight Show” in 1966.  Thank you Mr. Foley for creating one of the greatest games ever.

Twister_Game

Twister called itself “the game that ties you up in knots.” Its detractors called it “sex in a box.”

Charles “Chuck” Foley, the father of nine who invented the game that became a naughty sensation in living rooms across America in the 1960s and 1970s because of the way it put men and women in compromising positions, has died. He was 82.

Foley died July 1 at a care facility in the Minneapolis suburb of St. Louis Park. His son, Mark Foley, said Thursday that his father had been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

Foley and a collaborator, Neil Rabens, were hired in the mid-1960s by a St. Paul manufacturing firm that wanted to expand into games and toys. They came up with a game to be played on a mat on the floor, using a spinner to direct players to place their hands and feet on different colored circles.

Legendary Comic and Impersonator Jonathan Winters Dies at Age 87 … RIP

The death of true comedy …

Legendary comic and impersonator Jonathan Winters has passed away at his home in Montecito, California at age 87. The world just got a little less funny with his passing. Jonathan Winters was simply hysterical. Remember an era of comedy that was not mean spirited, laced with profanity and witty, neither do I. But during Winters’ era it was.  Winters was a comic genius who could switch in and out of character impersonations like we switch a light switch or today’s generations change their Facebook status, tweet or text. Winters inspired generations of improve comics, probably none better than Robbin Williams. And as fate would have it, Winters would later have a role on Williams’ popular TV show ‘Mork & Mindy’ VIDEO) as his son Merth. However,  I remember Winters best for his role in It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Just priceless comedy. The gas station scene (VIDEO) with Winters and Fred Silver … just too funny. This movie just never gets old. And who can forget when Jonathon Winters was a special guest crime solving with the Scooby Doo gang (VIDEO) where he played himself, Jonathan Winters, the not so famous comedian, hahaha. We shall miss you.

 NY Times Obit.

Mr. Winters was at his best when winging it, confounding television hosts and luckless straight men with his rapid-fire delivery of bizarre observations uttered by characters like Elwood P. Suggins, a Midwestern Everyman, or one-off creations like the woodland sprite who bounded onto Jack Paar’s late-night show and simperingly proclaimed: “I’m the voice of spring. I bring you little goodies from the forest.”

A one-man sketch factory, Mr. Winters could re-enact Hollywood movies, complete with sound effects, or create sublime comic nonsense with simple props like a pen-and-pencil set.

The unpredictable, often surreal quality of his humor had a powerful influence on later comedians like Robin Williams but made him hard to package as an entertainer. His brilliant turns as a guest on programs like “The Steve Allen Show” and “The Tonight Show” — in both the Jack Paar and Johnny Carson eras — kept him in constant demand. But a successful television series eluded him, as did a Hollywood career, despite memorable performances in films like “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World,” “The Loved One” and “The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming.”
