Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky) Is Going to Canada To Get An Hernia Operation.

Search on Google News for ‘Rand Paul‘.


This is NOT a joke. This, alas, is very, very real.

A sitting U.S. Senator is going to Canada to get an hernia operation done!

The implications are horrendous. U.S. hospitals and doctors are NOT good enough. WOW.

Now remember, he is a doctor. Wow. So, he should know. WOW.

Canada? Yes, Canada?

Plus, he is not going there to get it done free or on the cheap — though it is way less expensive in Canada than here.

I really am in shock. This is not good. The last thing we need right now.

Google ‘refugees’, ‘Myanmar’ or ‘Burmese’ for many, many other articles.

I have over the last year repeatedly spoken out against the misguided, extremely insecure extremist Buddhists in Sri Lanka. The extremist Buddhists in Burma, the inspiration for what is taking place in Sri Lanka, are even worse!

There is hardly any coverage of what is taking place in Myanmar (Burma) these days — with the extremist Buddhists, just like in Sri Lanka, trying to purge the minorities.

In the last 48 hours I have seen headlines talking about “SAVAGE Buddhists”! That a decade ago would have been an oxymoron.

Savage Buddhists?

How could that be. It is a religion of compassion. A religion of tolerance.

I am NOT a Buddhist. But I grew up in an extremely activist Buddhist household. My adopted father, to my shame, became an extremist Buddhist (albeit in his old age) — as are many of my cousins (though age alone cannot be used as an excuse by them).

Growing up Buddhist I thought that tolerance was a virtue. Despite ardency of the Buddhism in our household we had Christians in the family and our BEST friends were Christians and Muslims. This is why extreme Buddhism in Sri Lanka, to me, makes NO SENSE. My adopted father’s BEST FRIEND was Senator Abdul Aziz (who at the time was one of the richest men in Ceylon). Because of kidnapping fears (mainly from the Catholics) I was ONLY allowed to approach two cars, after school, at 1pm — IF my father couldn’t be there because he had been detained at work. One was Uncle Amarasinghe’s car (and he was somebody that my father had gone to school with) and the other was Senator Aziz’s black Peugeot (driven by his wonderful driver). So 40 years hence when I see my adopted father supporting extreme Buddhist monks who advocate violence against Muslims it confuses me.

I have NO patience for extremist Buddhists.

I have already put forth my solution to curb some of their vigor. At a MINIMUM Pakistan, Bangladesh and UAE should REFUSE to play cricket against Sri Lanka. Ideally the cricketing world should do to Sri Lanka what they did to South Africa for ’20’ years. Boycott them until they renounce Buddhist apartheid.

This persecution of non-Buddhists by Buddhists has to stop — Worldwide. It is Wrong. What would the Buddha Say? He was not perfect, BUT I am sure of one thing about him — he would NOT have condoned violence. The notion of ‘savage Buddhists’ would have appalled him. So IF you are a Buddhist cut out this nonsense, not for you, not for me — but for the sake of the Buddha.


Thanks To N.H. Insurance Department I FINALLY Get An Anthem Membership Number. Amazing!

As you know I was NOT going to take Anthem’s rejection of me lying down.

On Friday, after I made my 2nd payment, I contacted as many people as I could think of and filed two formal complaints.

One of the folks I contacted, right off the bat, was the N.H. Insurance Department — Consumer Complaints. I left a message on Friday.

This morning, around 11:15, a lovely lady called ‘Lisa’ called. She assured me that I was NOT alone. She took all my information and said that she will see if she can get any ‘joy’ from her Anthem contact. She told me to be patient. She told me I was not alone. She understood. She was very sympathetic.

She called me back within 20 minutes!

Her opening words were:
“You are the LUCKY ONE!”

She had my Anthem Membership Number!

She told me how lucky we had been to get it. She told me that she had not been able to get numbers for other people.

The number she gave me WORKS.

I was able to create an Anthem online account with that number …

I also managed to get the screenshot shown above. That shows the same number, or at least the ‘numeric’ part of it, without the 3 leading letters I was also given.

There is a PRINT temporary ID card link BUT it is temporarily disabled!

But, I am so relieved. So happy. I now have coverage. This number is good. I can use it if I were to have the heart attack I am expecting anytime now — especially with all the stress I have undergone trying to get this damn insurance.



I called Anthem again on Saturday. On hold for 96 minutes!

Got a lovely lady named ‘Diana’. She was so, so helpful.

Unlike the Indian idiot I had the misfortune of getting on Friday, she found my records! She said that I was covered THOUGH they hadn’t processed my payments. Even said that they would either return one of the payments or use it as the premium for February.

When she fully appreciated my distress she put me on hold and went and saw a manager. His name is: Robert Murr… II. He works for Wellpoint and is a Member Services manager.

He too has been outstanding. He sent me a letter saying I am covered. He has sent me 4 e-mails. I am impressed.



I also got a call from Carol Shea-Porter’s Office. I had contacted them on Friday.

The gentleman that called me, very, very nice, told me that they had sent my information to their Anthem contact on Saturday.

I also got voice-mail from Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s office. They had also looked into it.

As did my friend, N.H. State Representative Lisa DiMartino.

I am lucky that I had so many good people rally around to help me.

THANK YOU, All.

IF you are having trouble with Anthem … you need to start calling. That is my advice.

Call center rep. said he was amazed by what he is hearing on TV.
He still has problems with his own system.

He couldn’t help me today!

So I have been trying since October 2.

I can’t login.

This is beyond crazy.

This is why bloody Sebelius would NOT answer John Stewart’s REPEATED question: “how many people managed to enroll in Obamacare last week?”

NONE. Nonbody. ZERO.

All accounts setup at healthcare.gov last week [i.e., Oct. 1 – Oct. 7] were DELETED on Sunday night. 

Ditto applications.

So don’t sit there smugly thinking that you are all set. You have been screwed, right royally, in your derriere and you still haven’t worked it out.

I know because they told me.

I set up two accounts and applied through the call center.
ALL LOST.

I applied again. So I know.

Liberal media is covering this up for Obama.

Republican media, i.e., Fox News, too stupid to understand what this means.
Way too complicated for them. Pity.
I called and e-mailed them offering to take them through it using small words.

Just remember WHO broke this story.

Can NO LONGER logon. I was able last week — as this post proves.

As I write, I am ‘on hold’ with the 1-800 Call Center. Their computer system is down too!

All accounts created last week LOST. Official. Call and find out.

All data lost.

Yes. Gone. Will have to apply again.

Just confirmed. My application data was ALL lost.

OFFICIAL.

They are retyping it. 

Yes. The Website sure has to be under ‘Denial of Service’ (DoS) attack. That would explain some of the problems, but not all.

They should have anticipated DoS attacks. That was so predictable.

This is pure and simple FRAUD.

Nothing has happened with my plea for a Congressional Inquiry into this — the BIGGEST FRAUD perpetrated on U.S. Tax Payers.

Obama and his cronies have to have lined their pockets with BILLION OF DOLLARS claiming it was for developing this system.

I spent 40 years of my life involved, intimately, with LARGE computer systems. This is FRAUD.

Why aren’t the Republicans going after Obama for this?

This is how they can shutdown Obamacare.

Impeach Obama before he skips town with his ill gotten billions.

Once he gets to Kenya we will never be able to extradite him.

I Apply For Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA)/Obamacare Insurance By Phone, Through Call Center, Not ‘Healthcare.gov’.

Well according to this, and it took me 40 minutes and 8 attempts to logon to healtcare.gov, my current application is being reviewed.

I do NOT trust it.

Here is the kicker. I was told that I would get the approval or denial by mail!

Around 2:20 pm yesterday, Wednesday, October 2, 2013, when the fraudulent healthcare.gov system would NOT let me proceed because I had dependents that did NOT require health insurance, I in desparation first tried the ONLINE CHAT. That was a joke. Just automated messages that told me to try again in March 2014! I kid you NOT.

I then called the 1-800 number.

I was surprised. Somebody answered with a few minutes!

She was very pleasant, actually quite friendly, very professional and helpful.

She said that they knew of the dependent problem.

Then she said that I could apply online and that she could type it all in.

So we did that. It wasn’t too painful. Obviously she was using a system different to what we have at healtcare.gov. That alone is criminal. Bryan Sivak, the reprobate behind this billion dollar scam should be arrested. Republicans can be so dumb sometimes. They can shutdown Obamacare just by highlighting and focusing on this scam! Forget the funding. Highlight the scam. Close the system because of the fraud. But, that is too technical for them. Alas.

She had to put me on hold about 6 times to go and find out answers. But, it was OK. Much better service than I have had from U.S. Cellular or DirecTV.

When it was all done and filed she told me that that was the FIRST application she had processed!

I was floored. This was 2:30 pm on the 2nd DAY of bloody Obamacare.

She told me that she got a LOT of training. So she must have started the day before though I didn’t get a chance to ask her that.

So about 30.5 hours after it went live, I was the first application she had processed!

Amazing.

This is such a travesty. Such a scam.

For this Obama should be impeached. That he let this happen is criminal, pure and simple. But, Republicans don’t get it. That is why they lost the last election. Just don’t get it. I have tried to help. I am even telling them what to do … like calling for a Congressional Inquiry.

‘Healthcare.gov’ Obmacare Healthcare Registration System CANNOT Deal With Folks That Do NOT NEED Insurance For Dependents!

This is bloody (and the word I really want to use is not that) AMAZING.

They, these damn crooks, NEVER coded this system for a person, with a family, that just wanted insurance for themselves.

You have to enter spouse and all dependents you will claim on 2014 Tax Return.

THEN YOU go into a never ending loop IF you don’t specify that you need insurance for them.

I called the 1-800 CALL Center. They CONFIRMED that this was a known BUG.

Bloody amazing.

This proves that these crooks NEVER tested this system. They should go to PRISON, but they won’t. They just became millionaires off this scam.


It starts LOOPING, endlessly at this point. You can't get out. I called the 1-800. They knew of this problem! Trying to fix this.

This is beyond the pale.

This is daylight, highway robbery of our tax money.

This is way, way, way worse than Solyndra.

This is taxpayer money being funneled to Obama’s cronies irrespective of their capabilities.

This has to be investigated.

As you can see I have done my part.

You too can contact your representatives.

Since I tend to be, much of the time, and equal-opportunity activist, I also contacted Senator Jeanne Shaheen and asked her to do the same — though in this situation I have more confidence in firebrand Ayotte than in the gentlelady from NH — who has helped us, considerably, in the past.

This is the reprobate, Bryan Sivak, who is behind this FRAUD.

I tweeted and told him what I think of him and it wasn’t polite (which, as you all know, is very unlike me).

You can tweet him too. His ‘handle’ is @BryanSivak.
