I've posted a lot recently about how the second amendment is there to protect the people from the government.

I like how Ron Paul says it.

“Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. 

When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. 

America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. 

Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.”

― Ron Paul

President Obama stood front-and-center Monday morning to defend and explain the Affordable Care Act -- now known as ObamaCare -- and the problems that have plagued the central website launched earlier this month to sign up consumers.

Speaking in the White House Rose Garden, with another carefully crafted backdrop of ObamaCare users, the president said "there's no excuse" for the problems with the site.

But he appealed to the public to have patience and defended the product -- government-regulated health insurance -- that the troubled site is selling. 

For now, Obama said, consumers can "bypass the website," and instead apply over the phone or by mail.

The president's comments from the Rose Garden amounted to the most detailed explanation from the administration to date about what is going wrong with the site and what's being done to fix it. It was also the most direct acknowledgement from the president that the site is not living up to expectations.

The president said the site "hasn't worked as smoothly as it was supposed to work" and "nobody's more frustrated by that than I am."

"There's no sugarcoating it. The website has been too slow. People have been getting stuck during the application process," Obama said. "There's no excuse for the problems. ... These problems are getting fixed."

Mr. Illegal Alien just sugarcoated it. This has been a clusterf@#k!

Think it's just right wing propaganda?

The publication Consumer Reports in a recent review said consumers who are overwhelmed by the glitches should "stay away" from the site for "at least another month."

Consumer Reports is well known for its independence, keeping the interests of consumers at the top of their list. And they're recommending caution!

According to HHS, roughly 500,000 applications for coverage have been submitted. This is certainly not a mandate from the people, considering ObamaCare was passed on the contention that there were more than 48 million Americans without insurance.

At this point, it does not matter what the Republicans say or do, and quite frankly, all their showboating is just that-they want a national plan just as much as Obama does.

It means more power, and is a way to further accomplish Obama’s stated goal of redistributing the wealth. I know all of America fell in love with the Kenyan immigrant, so they are too blind to see that he is ALL ABOUT gathering power and furthering his Marxist agenda at YOUR EXPENSE!

Americans ought be careful what they wish for. Many of the misguided liberals with a rose-tinted view of the Obama administration want to see the redistribution of the wealth, because they think it will bring about a shiny happy world.

They think that the wealth will be redistributed from the wealthy to the poor. 

What’s going to happen is it will be redistributed from the middle class to the wealthy.

And it’s all happening right now, but Americans are too busy watching reality television.

And to top it all off-your access to health care will get WORSE!

Americans are so obsessed with showing off how wonderful they are, and there's nowhere they like to show it more than on their cars.

With their vanity plates and bumper stickers about honor students and championship team license plate frames, Americans are screaming "LOOK AT ME!"

An acquaintance of mine has been talking up his new "Limited Edition" Ford F-150 truck like he's got something really exclusive.

Limited to what? As many as they could produce?

Are there all of a sudden F-150 collectors out there?

Sorry folks, if it comes off of a production line, it isn't all that special.

Every car is a limited edition-they only make a limited amount each year.

So you're bragging about a plastic piece of trim that say "Limited." Get over yourself!

That said, every rule has an exception.

The 2012 Aston Martin One-77 listed for $1.87 million, and there were only 77 produced. While I could make the argument that due to the size of the market for cars costing $1.87 million, that's not that limited, either, but I am willing to concede this one.

I am curious how that car buying experience goes?

Is the buyer arguing about the inclusion of the rustproofing?

And how much wiggle room does a dealer have on a $1.87 million dollar car? How many trips back to the manager do you think it takes to knock a hundred thousand off?

I get it, America.

You've all stopped cheering because football players are injured and carried off the field, and put down your copies of 50 Shades Of Grey. 

Now you want to bemoan the loss of innocence of your favorite teeny-bopper idol and show your outrage that she's showing a little bit of skin and ditching that oh-so-cute Disney image now that she's twenty.

Yes, you'll read a series of books that focuses on bondage, but that doesn't mean you want to see skimpy outfits and suggestive tongue tricks at the video music awards!

After all, some hallmarks of American culture need to keep up their standards!

Oh right, I hear one of the dancers said she felt "less than human" during the risque display. The dancer in question was dressed as a stuffed animal, and felt that because she was a "little person" this was offensive. That did not stop her from cashing the check, I'll bet.

Okay, so Miley is celebrating her sexual awakening by dressing in slinky outfits and sticking her butt up in the air.

So what?

Haven't you already seen all this in Madonna videos a couple of decades ago?

Heck, unless you're Liam Hemsworth, how does it even affect you?

Liam got a tattoo in tandem with Miley that quoted Theodore Roosevelt, the quote starting on his arm and finishing on hers. 

Now he has to either have the tattoo removed or answer questions about it for the rest of his life.

And isn't the real issue here Miley's butchering of the English language? 

I may be beating our friend Jenny of Missed Periods And Other Grammar Scares to the punch here, but there is a line in her song "Get It Right" that needs a little bit of red ink on the lyric sheet.

I've been laying in this bed all night long
Don't you think it's time to get it on

Well, Miley, I think you mean you've been lying, not laying.

I know most people think lying is something politicians do, but we all do it every night when we sleep.

You may have been getting laid all night long, although if so, wouldn't the time to get it on have passed...and passed...and passed...?

In that scenario,  your boyfriend may have been doing the laying…and if he was, if you’d let me know if he ate anything special the evening before, I’d appreciate it.

Otherwise, laying should only be used with an object, so you could have been “laying your tired booty on that bed all night long."

So America can we all agree that Miley's escapades, albiet immature, are no more offensive than a typical MTV video or a prime time television show.

Furthermore, are we all in agreement that the real offense here is to the English tutors Miley was apparently not paying attention to all those years?
