Historic Glitches

Now that we’ve been told by the DNCMedia, never once deviating from their OFA flash cards, that OgabeCare is suffering from a few “glitches”, here is another famous historical glitch:

In spite of a few initial glitches, transatlantic flight will become faster, more available and cheaper soon! The Hindenburg: It's More Than Just a Blimp!

Ladies and Gentleman, I can report with complete confidence that our operations on the Western Plains are in fine order. It is correct that General Custer has encountered a minor glitch at the Little Big Horn but we’re confident he will have everything worked out shortly.

What a coincidence. In March, 2011, Japanese power company TEPCO also reported a glitch at the nuclear power plant located in Fukushima.

We could have fun with some of the Russki’s “industrial Accidents”, as well as the Chinese – if only we could find out what they were. Many years ago, an amateur ham operator heard somebody calling for help from orbit (this was in the 60’s) – and it wasn’t us. And they weren’t speaking English. For some reason, we never… Read more »

Apparently there was a glitch in our teletype machine. Now understand that correct order from Wannsee was to “Thrill all of the Jews”. Plans are underway to host big cultural fair and music festival, but fear attendance may be low due to prior miscommunication.

I agree with Denninger. There will be zero solution to this that comes from the ballot box. Zilch. Zero. Zip.
