ObamaBot Zombies and Others Surrendering Their Privacy Rights at

Yes, completely surrendering their privacy rights:
The launch of federal government's Obamacare insurance exchange,, has been plagued with delays, errors, and poor website design, even prompting USA Today to call it an "inexcusable mess" and a "nightmare".  Now comes another example of why the website's reputation is in tatters.  Buried in the source code of is this sentence that could prove embarrassing: "You have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding any communication or data transiting or stored on this information system."  Though not visible to users and obviously not intended as part of the terms and conditions, the language is nevertheless a part of the underlying code for the "Terms & Conditions" page on the site.
After creating an account on, users are asked to click an "I accept" button under some routine Terms & Conditions prohibiting unauthorized attempts to upload information or change the website.  Once users click the button, they may proceed to shop for insurance and enter detailed personal information.  However, when the Terms & Conditions page is visible, the hidden sentence mentioned above along with several others can be seen by using a web browser's "View Source" feature.  A screen grab below shows the visible Terms & Conditions page along with a simultaneous view of the code underlying it:

When you think about it, this makes perfect sense and many of the people who volunteer their personal information on this defective web site probably don't really care that they are surrendering all of their privacy rights to Barack the Terrible's totalitarian state.Most Americans who would subjugate themselves to the most intrusive entitlement of the welfare state are probably more than willing to give up their privacy in exchange for cradle to grave socialism.

And give up their privacy they will. Apparently, the broken Obamacare web site wants to know damn near everything about you -- your name, your age, your sex, your Social Security number, how many people are in your family, their names/ages/sexes, your aliments, your medical history ... All plugged into a web site where the functionality and security are dubious at best.

Of course Barack the Terrible's bureaucracy needs to invade your privacy to deliver you the best health care a broken bureaucracy can give you. Having all that personal information is crucial to plug into the death panel formula -- remember Barack the Terrible's buddy Rahm's doctor brother Ezekiel and his "complete lives system"? If your personal information indicates that you're over 40 years old you're screwed. You're on the downhill side of your complete life and your life is therefore worth less than someone who's younger.

Low information Americans who are apt to deposit a mother lode of their personal information on the most dysfunctional major web site in the history of the Internet probably don't even know who the mayor of Chicago (Barry's buddy Rahm) is, let alone who his brother Zeke is. Well let's just say Zeke didn't just come up with this "complete lives system" while he was sitting around in his underwear one night  No, Zeke is Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a top health care policy adviser to Barack the Terrible during the development of Obamacare. So to cut to the chase, Barry and Zeke want as much of your personal information as they can get so that they can determine whether you live or die -- literally.

Does this sound "extreme" to you? Well try Zeke's theory as he describes it in his own words:
In fact, Dr. Emanuel makes a clear choice: "When implemented, the complete lives system produces a priority curve on which individuals aged roughly 15 and 40 years get the most substantial chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get changes that are attenuated (see Dr. Emanuel's chart nearby).
Attenuated. For you low information voters that means tailored -- in this case to the care the bureaucracy thinks is appropriate for you based on that wealth of personal information you provided to their broken web site. Perhaps Barack the Terrible put it best: Just give your mother a pill. 

So you see, low information voters who think that Obamacare (BTW when is this term finally going to be accepted as the real word that it is? Barry owns this miserable failure.) is the best thing since sliced bread, every shred of your personal information is extremely important to Barack the Terrible and his merry band of bureaucrats. Are you too old? Maybe you don't get the best cancer treatment the bureaucracy can provide. Perhaps we just shuttle you off to  hospice and make you comfortable. Need a hip replacement? Well how old are you? Why spend the money on you, you old bastard, when you may only use it for 15 years? Because you know that as you get further "over the hill" from that magic age of 40, spending a lot of money on your medical care is just not worth it anymore.

So thanks for providing all that personal information "you have no reasonable expectation of privacy" over: The Obamacare bureaucracy needs it to determine whether you will live or die.
