Fell Off the Website
All the Obama’s Programmers
Couldn’t Put Obamacare Together Again
By Servando Gonzalez
Somebody told me a story — most likely
a joker’s fabrication — that a true specialist had
offered Obama his help to fix the Obamacare website. His name
is Mamadú Ubunto, a famous witch doctor from Nigeria. Mr.
Ubunto promised Obama that just by killing a white goat, five
black chickens and doing some chanting in front of the White House,
he would have the Obamacare website fixed in no time.
Well, even though I have my doubts about Mr. Ubunto’s powers
to fix the website, I sincerely suggest Mr. Obama to at least
give it a try. Otherwise, nobody will be able to fix it. The Obamacare
website is like Humpty Dumpty, no computer programmer can put
it together again.
Why I am so sure? Because, contrary to common belief, computer
programming is not an exact science, but an art. Every computer
programmer has his own style and usage, which he is the only one
to fully understand.
Even though computer programmers are supposed to document every
single line of their programming code, the process takes so much
time that is never fully done. Therefore, only the original programmer
can fully understand why he did what he did. Sometimes, in the
case of long and complicated programs with thousands of lines
of code, after some time not even the programmer himself can understand
what he did.
According to what I’ve read, the Obamacare website not only
has millions of lines of code, but also it was designed by a team
of computer programmers. The joke that the camel is actually a
horse designed by a team comes to mind. Experience shows that
when a computer program becomes too complex, no one can comprehend
it entirety. As a result, if the program breaks down, nobody can
fix it. This is exactly what is happening to the Obamacare website.
A common joke among computer programmers is that every computer-programming
job will take double the time than you initially calculated —
even if you initially calculated for double the time! It seems,
however, that the programming job for the Obamacare website was
not only awarded based on personal contacts (Do I smell corruption
here?), not on experience and expertise, but also that it was
accomplished in a rush. So, I can safely surmise that it was a
sloppy job, with a lot of what in computer programmers’
jargon is called “spaghetti code.”
Therefore, forget about it. The Obamacare website is unfixable.
Fubar! Kaput! End! Finito!
So, if you have been fooled to believe that the Obamacare website
is now working, or that it has just some minor problems that eventually
will be fixed, or that your personal information is secure, it
can only shows that you are a very gullible person, to say the
But the Obamacare Website programming fiasco is not the first
in the history of mankind, and most likely it will not be the
Some Other Major Computer Programming Fiascos
The Denver International Airport in Denver, Colorado, is the largest
airport in the U.S. It was scheduled to open on May 15, 1994.
The best computer programmers at the time designed its fully computerized
baggage transport system. The core of this innovative system was
the airport’s subterranean baggage-handling system. Like
intelligent coalmine cars along 21 miles of track, 4,000 independent,
computer-controlled “telecars” would route and deliver
luggage between the counters, gates and claim areas of 20 different
airlines. A central nervous system of some 100 computers networked
to one another and to 5,000 electronic eyes, 400 radio receivers
and 56 bar-code scanners orchestrated the safe and timely arrival
of every single piece of luggage. It was supposed to be a marvelous
technological innovation resulting in cutting airline labor costs
and shortening waiting times for luggage.
To everybody’s utter surprise, however, the system never
worked. Actually it was a disastrous failure. As a result, the
airport didn’t open in May 1994, but not until February
1995, with separate systems for each concourse, with different
levels of automation.
The initial cost of the marvelous computerized system was $186
million. As it usually happens, however, the costs grew by $1
million per day during months of modifications and repairs. In
a last effort to fix it, the computer code was sent to the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology to be fixed. After some extraordinary
efforts, however, not even the computer wizards at the MIT were
able to disentangle the programming code and fix the program.
As a result, they had to trash it.
Another notable case of computer programming catastrophic failure
is the California DMV attempt to fully automate its operations.
In 1987, the California Department of Motor Vehicles decided to
fully computerize the state’s driver and vehicle registration
system. Its goal was to unveil convenient one-stop renewal offices
in about a year. Instead the DMV project’s cost exploded
to 6.5 times the expected price and the delivery date receded
to 1998. Faced with failure after failure to make the system work,
in December of that year the DMV pulled the plug and ended the
seven-year, $44.3-million investment.
The cases I have mentioned above are not the exception, but the
norm. In June 1994, IBM’s Consulting Group released the
results of a survey of 24 leading companies that had developed
large distributed computer systems. The numbers were unsettling:
55 percent of the projects cost more than expected, 68 percent
overran their schedules and 88 percent had to be substantially
redesigned or abandoned.
A Silver Lining
As I have mentioned in previous books and articles, Barry Soetoro
(a.k.a. Barack Hussein Obama) is nothing but a CFR puppet and
Obamacare is actually a Rockefeller concoction. Moreover, being
a Rockefeller baby, you can bet your money that some eugenic measures
have been allowed to infiltrate into the Obamacare monster —
which nobody, even the corrupt politicians who approved it, seem
to have read.
Nevertheless, as the saying goes, every dark cloud has a silver
lining, and the Obamacare site’s disaster is probably one
of the best things that has happened to us, the American people,
in the last half-century.
Usually, laws passed by the CFR-controlled politicians in the
U.S. government do not have a short feedback time. When we the
people finally discover that these laws are wrong and detrimental
to our interests, a long time has passed and nothing can be done
to reverse them. These are the cases, i.e., of the law that created
the Federal Reserve Bank, the law that created the IRS, and the
ones that created the National Security Council, the CIA, and
later the NSA, just to mention a few of them.
In this case, however, the CFR conspirators made a big mistake.
They linked the Obamacare monstrosity to a Web site, and a web
site gives instant feedback. It either works, or it doesn’t.
You don’t have to wait for half a century to realize that
Obamacre is a total failure. It is obvious the Obamacare’s
website is a total disaster. But the good part of it is that its
failure has given most people an unmistakable sign that the whole
Obamacare concoction is nothing but a catastrophic failure.
Thank you, Obama. Finally you and your CFR masters have done something
good for the American people.
Sometimes the road to Heaven is paved with bad intentions!
