NEWSWEEK vs. The Atlantic: Dueling Data wonks

Newsweek‘s “Hit the road, Barack: Why we need a new president” written by conservative historian Niall Ferguson vs. The Atlantic‘s article “A Full Fact-Check of Niall Ferguson’s Very Bad Argument Against Obama” by senior associate editor Matthew O’Brien are good reads.

The only problem going on here is with me and my frustration in knowing who to believe anymore without having to do my own research to ferret out the truth.  If I have to devote one more minute to fact-checking the supposed ‘fact-checkers’ on facts (not to mean the writers referenced here), I might as well finish the dam research and go the one-more-step and just publish my dam book Liars for Hire for a million bucks advance and get on with my life, hunh?  I dream of isolated beaches….aaaaaah

Crikey-Roos!

Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate, vice-president of CGI Federal, the Healthcare.gov contractor

Michelle-O’s Princeton classmate, Toni Townes-Whitley, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, the no-bid contractor that built the $678 million Healthcare.gov according to The Daily Caller. This is my answer to those, myself included, who wondered why in the he!! would our .government give a no-bid contract of that size to a non-American contractor when so many Americans are out of work.

And by the way, what’s up with the no-bid contracts these days?

NSA website down

Oops.  RT reports NSA down, Friday afternoon, due to DDoS (distributed denial-of-service attack).  Unbelievable.  But true?
