    Many of those who achieved to signing up for Obama Care are receiving denial letters they did so incorrectly and do not have health insurance.

    The numbers the White House is giving of those successfully signed up for Obama Care can’t be counted as those mastering the task are receiving letters that their choice of insurance was denied, thus they still don’t have Health Insurance or Health Care.

    It only takes a few clicks to rig the site to show successfully signed up, and sending form letters they were not entitled to the insurance they picked out, and other excuses.

    As Diane Sawyer unfairly reports numbers given to her from unnamed White House officials,

    FOX actually showed the stoic froze face of Kathleen Sebelius with a huge smile walking up behind site workers stopping at one worker who threw her hands up to show Sebelius and tell her it’s going to keep happening over and over.

    Amazing was Kathleen Sebelius’s not one smiling facial expression changed. Not a blink. No wary look. I don’t know anyone who can do that, but I suppose a con-artist could. Hope that complaining worker still has a job after doing a no no before the camera.

    Well, the mental block I struggled with “ethnicity” did not end well, but it was because I refused to be stupid for a rotten sob.

    I did learn by accident how to describe an ethnic person when asked what a he or a she looked like. Just say “well…uh..oh…sigh..” and glance down cowardly.

    But, I’m so screwed up, when one of the guys was white and I was asked what he looked like, I avoided saying he was white. So, at least I’m fair.

    I’m gonna have to nip this in the bud and call a spade a spade and quit trying to be so politically correct.

    I was also misunderstood when I called some people in China as “little people” and cut off with gasps and unhappy looks and noises, not understanding. I was able to explain I meant in comparison of the load they carry to their size. “Little people as I was using it could have been any race or ethnicity”. I was actually complimenting and praising hardworking labor class in China. sigh……

      After explaining and demonstrating with my arms that of pulling a large load and pulling a cart with wheel barrow sticks, to those around me I had no idea were even listening since people complain it’s hard to hear me, I was further humiliated by the man who lives in China that the Chinese haven’t pulled carts since the 60’s and echoed by others who gasped that I should not believe what I see on TV. And this guy tells he does films in Hong Kong. Who knows.

      So, I googled Chinese pulling carts and came up with tons of “present day” amazing pics of single Chinese men and women carrying enormous loads. I guess people in Hong Kong are made to believe China is a great country.

      So, am I also to believe the tale of why some Chinese don’t like Americans. The simple version is when Taiwan wanted independence they “stole” China’s heroin. Then the US backed Taiwan and that is the story.

      I was told I was correct that there are cities of modern high rises and malls that have never sold
      and remain vacant. It’s was pretty stunning in the documentary I watched.

      And that may be a reason the “high speed trains” are shut down, because poor Chinese literally thrown from their homes can’t afford to take the train and move into the fancy cities.

      The point is there is a possible deficit in China and my guess is our leader who shunned Israel
      Prime Minister for dinner to go to Chicago Illinois and show Chinese business around the city. Our leader’s plan continues that Chicago will be the hub, though it’s not central located in the countries and the stimulus money to build a high speed rail to a vacant Detroit Michigan.
      It won’t bring people to Detroit. For that matter they use freight trains for supplies. I saw our railroad carrying military plane parts on the top of cars and it was awesome. They were heading North.
