White House Responds To Petition To Fire Aaron Swartz's Prosecutor

JRV31 Re:How many times done anything helpful? (189 comments)

The ACA was announced and pretended to be in operation before the software was ready: How Obamacare's epic fail exposed our government's biggest tech problem. Whoever is at the top of the U.S. government was obviously completely incompetent. (Often a U.S. president merely pretends to be in charge, hiding what is actually happening, and who is arranging it.)

The President is very much a figurehead - he wields no real power whatsoever. He is apparently chosen by the government, but the qualities he is required to display are not those of leadership but those of finely judged outrage. For this reason the President is always a controversial choice, always an infuriating but fascinating character. His job is not to wield power but to draw attention away from it.

Beta seems to have become worse lately. There is no place to sign in, and the link to return to classic is missing. I have to close and re-open my browser until it starts in classic mode.
