SLIGHTLY OFF THE MARK


            I figured it out – I figured out what’s wrong with the Obamacare website!

            Not that I can fix it … let’s not get silly.

            I got the idea from Star Trek. Specifically, from some dialogue in the movie Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. This is the one where Kirk and Spock sing campfire songs and fight God. Hm … there could be more government jokes in there, somewhere.

            Anyway, here are the lines that got my attention:

            Captain Kirk: “You told me you could get this ship operational in two weeks, I gave you three, what happened?”

            Engineer Scott: “I think you gave me TOO much time, Captain.”

            See, it’s funny because … never mind. Although it might be the funniest moment of the movie, unless you count the unintentional laughs.
           I pondered this when I realized the government had three and a half years to get the Obamacare website up and running. At the rate it was budgeted, that’s $2,230,952 a month. That’s more than my Mountain Dew and chocolate budget combined. So, maybe we just gave them too much time?Collapse )
