Time Relationship

You all know how fascinated I am with the relationship between events and time as viewed from different perspectives, but this was interesting:

March 21st 2010 to October 1 2013 is 3 years, 6 months, 10 days.

December 7, 1941 to May 8, 1945 is 3 years, 5 months, 1 day.

What this means is that in the time between the attack on Pearl Harbor to the day Germany surrendered is not enough time for this federal government to build a working website.

Mobilization of millions, building tens of thousands of tanks, planes, jeeps, subs, cruisers, destroyers, torpedoes, millions upon millions of guns, bombs, ammo, etc. Turning the tide in North Africa, Invading Italy, D-Day, Battle of the Bulge, Race to Berlin - all the while also fighting the Japanese in the Pacific!

Fascinating. Another thing you hear little about is that the contractor is a Canadian company. Evidently, the country that gave us Microsoft, Apple, Oracle, etc. is not adequate to create a website, so they had to go to a foreign contractor.

In addition, they violate the privacy rules that are the law of the land for everyone else in the fundamental design of the website.

It is so indicative of what you get when you rely on political hacks instead of experienced, bright people.

Oh, and another thing...the US ranks 3rd in the world in murders. If you remove Chicago, Detroit, Washington D.C. and New Orleans, the US is 4th from the bottom. Those cities have two things in common: the toughest gun laws in the country, and governance by Democrats for 50 years or more.
