Given your excellent core dump skills i am sure you will have no problem deciphering this little ditty.
So let's see, your SSN is currently stored at the IRS, DMV, CO Dept of Revenue, Tx Dept of Revenue, City of Steamboat, Ski Corp, Social Security Admin, Medicare, and the Routt County Clerk, YVMA, YVEA, and every other hospital or DR you have ever visited. OMG it is unsafe to store it on the connectforhealthco.com website. Hypocritical much Mr Mendell?
You shop at Amazon, ebay, barnes and noble, target, walmart, city market and think nothing about giving your credit card to the 19 year old waiter/waitress to take out of your site in the back room but storing any personal information on the aca website is surely an unacceptable risk.
No way, no how you ever apply for the ACA because you are most likely on medicare but the ACA is absolutely the worst thing this Gov't ever did hands down, no questions asked and if global warming is manmade it was caused by Obamacare. Oh yeah, Obama is a muslim born in Kenya, George Bush had the Seals take down the twin towers and Common Core is brainwashing children to be socialists and Democrats.
For someone who "claims" to have all this high falutin edumacation and technical experience, you sure are an easy mark for the conspiracy of the day. You probably sent that dictator in Nigeria a hundred bucks too.
Did I miss anything Steve?
Core Dump = Rudimentary skill - Well not exactly but go ahead and add that to the list.
Repairing the Core without the code = toggling the dip switches like they had to on the Apollo missions but you probably think that is a hoax also so it doesn't count.
Yeah, I got pissy. Getting tired of seeing Steve spew his erroneous information without any counterpoint. Anyone can find information on the internet to support their particular brand of crazy. Intelligent people actually listen and consider the opinions and viewpoints they disagree with.
For someone who is evidently retired from Frito Lay, Steve Mendell sure claims to have a very wide range of experience with High end computer skills and climate change. What was your job with Frito Lay Steve, care to enlighten us?
Me thinks he is just very good at finding and posting conspiracy links. He is also very fond circular arguments where he cites his own words as proof that his opinion is correct. A high school debate coach would tear him up and most likely flunk him for incoherent debate tactics. Any of us can find large numbers of surveys and articles on the internet to support even the craziest beliefs. When you choose to fill your head with information that agrees with your personal world view and do not bother to ever read or listen to information that is counter to those beliefs, you will continue to spiral in the direction you have chosen. True intellect comes from listening and debating with those you disagree with.
No sense arguing with crazy Rhys, he has more time and more thoughts in his head that can be argued with. That is what happens when you wear tin foil hats.
PS, core dumps suck big hairy ones. Been there done that. Good information can be found but it takes highly specialized skills and lots of tedious time and patience.
And the fact that you refuse to accept my answer says much about yours.
I wish you the best Mr. Meglen.
Now there is some:
ob·fus·cate [ob-fuh-skeyt, ob-fuhs-keyt] Show IPA
verb (used with object), ob·fus·cat·ed, ob·fus·cat·ing.
1. to confuse, bewilder, or stupefy.
2. to make obscure or unclear: to obfuscate a problem with extraneous information.
If you don't agree with me you are immoral. Did I get that right Joe?
I support your right to your opinion. Do you support mine?
I answered your question crystal clear in the context it was asked. Let's put it this way. If I walk up to your front door and shoot you dead it it murder. If you are breaking into my house and I shoot you dead it is self-defense. The difference is context not obfuscation or evasion.
Kevin, No matter what problems we face as a Nation, discourse, debate and discussion is the proper path for change. Armed revolution is not going to make this a better place to live for our children and grand-children. I agree, the Feds are not done with Mr. Bundy but they definitely made a smart decision to back down and avoid a Ruby Ridge or Waco situation.
Joe look at your own words. You changed the question. I did not obsfucate, I answered the question in the context it was asked:
"In order to distill the discussion of the ACA, or collectivism in general, down to basics, I have a question: Is it right to take from one person against their will and give these proceeds to another?"
Asked in the context of:
Is it OK for me to take my shotgun, break into your house and take your stuff to give it to lift-up the answer is no.
In the context of:
Is it OK for the Federal Gov't to tax your earnings in order to pay for the ACA, the Supreme Court said Yes. Doesn't matter what you or I think about it, we do not get to overrule the Supreme Court no matter how strongly we disagree with their decisions now do we.
That IS the law of the land. Are you calling for armed revolution against the Federal Gov't?
Dan, sorry I did miss that.. Presidents have power to change stuff, what can I say. They all do it.
Sucks when you disagree, great when you think it is right and proper. I am not sure but I do not believe any sitting President has ever been in Court over Executive Orders and the current POTUS is about average in that respect. The Left was all incensed about George Bush's Executive orders and the right is all pissed off about Obama's. Not much meat there really, just a bunch of grumbling about the guy with the pen.
PS. Rhys should contact me. I have need of some programming help. $$$ not friends and family/
No Jerry, if you are happy with your computer Windows XP should run fine for a long time. Microsoft will no longer support the product which means any security holes will not be fixed. If you do your banking online, you would want to consider a new computer in the next couple of years. If it is just for email and surfing then use it till it drops dead on the floor and pukes up its guts.
When using older computers, make sure you have a 2nd copy of any picture or file that matters to you. If you do not have that copy when the older computer fails it will be gone.
