First lady's "Let's Move" initiative online - Amber Alert system not so much

40 posts in this topic

Like I mentioned before, extracting as much pain is the goal here.  High profile shutdowns to get the "word" out.  Sequester fear mongering turned into a big flop.

 

Besides, shutting down the Let's move site would probably go unnoticed.

 

Love to have seen a Pub shut down the Amber alert website and the front pages all across the country.  It would have been epic.

Abducted children must fall under non-essential.

I think we need more information.  Is it not possible that LetsMove could have some outside funding available to keep the site running?  After all .gov is just an extension.   

 

It's pretty bad if so though, almost as bad as people taking the country hostage so everyone can't get universal healthcare.   Both sides looking really childish.

This is not surprising - The more active the content, the more it costs to maintain.

 

Also, the way the gov't runs, different websites may be up because of how different departments handle the funding for it.  I doubt that Let's Move specifically was kept online for any reason.

    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history.
    • Also, Greg is counting 20M against the cap over the next two...that's a big amount for a TE, even as great as he is.  This year he has a bit of leverage. Important piece of the passing and now running game. High cap number, and we are trying to free up space to sign the G's. Extremely healthy past.   He's just leaning on DG to extend him, and I think that we likely do....although it's not imperative.
