Our highly educated, high-Minded, high browed sophisticated youth and their childlike thinking
For years Democrats have told us who the enemy is in healthcare, insurance companies. So when one of the architects of the Affordable Care Act, Orwellian in name and commonly called Obamacare, start defending the institution they bashed for decades the hair on the back of my neck stands up.
Ezekiel Emmanuel, the brother of the former Obama White House chief of staff, Rahm and now current mayor of Chicago (how fitting for a political thug) says, "Americans hate health insurance companies. They are easy targets for everyone to beat up on. When premiums go up, we blame insurance companies; we do not blame the underlying hospitals or physicians who charge high prices that drive up insurance costs. When people with cancer, heart attacks, or other diseases are denied insurance, we blame insurance companies; we do not blame the underlying voluntary insurance market that necessitates underwriting. When our wish for a new high-priced drug is denied, we blame insurance companies; we do not blame drug companies that set the price at over $100,000. Politicians can always elicit an applause by attacking the health insurance companies, reinforcing this bad-guy image of insurance companies."
The people who demonize anyone standing in their way of Nirvana are Democrats. Not too long ago Obama Inc. told us about the 5 million insurance plans cancelled because insurance companies sold them subpar plans and therefore they were to blame for all the problems the ACA was experiencing.
Right, it wasn't the fact that they lied to the American people. For years the Sarah Palin's, Ted Cruz's, Louie Gohmerts, Mike Lee's, & Dr. Ben Carson's were telling us the end game was to destroy the healthcare system so we would accept a single payer government run crap sandwich.
They knew the American would have nothing to do with crap socialized medicine, unless you were educated within the last 15-20 years when the Left was able to muscle into primary schools and run their reeducation camps, then you fell for the crap sandwich.
They neatly teach our children that those over 30 are old and their thinking is outdated. Remember when we used to believe the older you get the wiser you get? Or those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it? The Left couldn't stand up to such logic and therefore came up with Progressivism, a system of feelings based ideas complete with half truths, false prophets, and propaganda neatly bundled into a political narrative which appears on our nightly news and most newspapers.
The ideas are so fragile that all others ideas must be shouted down and shutdown lest someone have five minutes of rational thought to see the house of cards in which it is built. The national media, with the exception of Fox News and talk radio speak with one voice and so it's interesting to see how many people I speak with who have never listened to Rush Limbaugh proceed to tell me what a jerk and liar he is. Who's the idiot, the media with the lies about Rush or the one who, without hearing the other side, passes judgment?
Leftist utopian plans become evident to those over 30 or who know Communisms past. They are seen for the crazy feeling based child solutions they are. Only it's more than that. It's not just Leftist ideas which don't work, they destroy and that is the problem. If they didn't work we could fix them, the problem is they "fundamentally transform" without any real knowledge of how things work in the real world, but how they played out in pristine college laboratories without any actual testing on live subjects. We've seen this before and it never turns out well. We could have learned from history if we weren't allowing history to be changed in order to fit a narrative.
Suffice to say what those who understand the Left knew they were making a back door to socialized medicine and now Dr. Emmanuel is introducing the next phase of the transformation which is to do away with insurance companies. The good Dr. explains, "As a result, insurance companies as they are now will be going away. Indeed, they are already evolving."
One might ask what they will evolve into if you were ever to know they were changing to begin with, since our media seems bent on not telling you about this "new" set of lies. According to Emmanuel:
The accountable care organizations (ACOs) (which I discuss in Chapter 8 of my new book) and hospital systems will begin competing directly in the exchanges and for exclusive contracts with employers. These new organizations are delivery systems with networks of physicians and hospitals that provide comprehensive care. This health delivery structure is in its infancy. Today there are hundreds of these organizations being created and gaining experience within government-sponsored programs or getting contracts from private insurers. They are developing and testing ways to coordinate, standardize, and provide care more efficiently and at consistently higher quality standards. Over the next decade many of these ACOs and hospital systems will succeed at integrating all the components of care and provide efficient, coordinated care. They will have the physician and hospital networks. They will have standardized, guideline-driven care plans for most major conditions and procedures to increase efficiency. They will have figured out how to harness their electronic medical records to better identify patients who will become sick and how to intervene early as well as how to care for the well-identified chronically ill so as to reduce costs.
Those "government-sponsored" standardized plans are socialized medicine. What a nice way of saying the government will decide who, what, & if you will get treatment. Over the next year doctors and hospitals will be demonized to have had the worst of intentions, to make money. For this crime the do-gooders will dismantle healthcare and make it more equal because that is what social justice is all about.
As for the bureaucrats who wrote the plan, they have created an escape hatch for themselves and the politicians. They will not have the government plan, they will have their own unique plan which has nothing to do with your government run, Dr. picked, "standardized guideline-driven" program. Nope, they will have state of the art hospitals & technology with highly trained physicians who will charge you and me a king's ransom in order to get the best for themselves. You, well you voted for them, so now you'll get the crap sandwich.
Maybe us knuckle dragging old folk who have been here and
done that with the Left over past 100 years understand a little more about history repeating itself and learning from it. Maybe you high minded, large ego, newly educated sophisticates will gorw up
and learn from your mistakes. The truth is, I have small hope for it because Dr. Emmanuel has kindly stated that it will take a decade to implement their new system so like a frog in water on a stove
top you will die before you understand you've been boiled to death.
For if you high minded sophisticates had thought for 5 minutes you would have realizeed if the program they created was so great then why did they need an escape plan from it?
How does THAT make you feel?!

Obama Bullies Israel by Jeffrey Goldberg
When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits the White House tomorrow, President Barack Obama will tell him that his country could face a bleak future -- one of international isolation and demographic disaster -- if he refuses to endorse a U.S.-drafted framework agreement for peace with the Palestinians. Obama will warn Netanyahu that time is running out for Israel as a Jewish-majority democracy. And the president will make the case that Netanyahu, alone among Israelis, has the strength and political credibility to lead his people away from the precipice.
It's been an interesting few days with Putin moving military troops into Crimea. While this is a definite provocation by Russia, what is more provocative and more interesting is "Egypt and Russia are said to have agreed on a $3b arms deal, in a direct snub to the US, even as President Vladimir Putin endorsed Egyptian army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi's presidential bid during the latter's visit to Moscow." The countries who helped put the deal together are none other than Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. Saudi Arabia has been frustrated with the Obama administration over the U.S.'s lack of response in Syria and Iran, leaving the power vacuum open for Russia and other dubious characters to step in and fill the void.
The world I understood, well better understood, is now in shambles both home and abroad. Prior to World War II America and Americans didn't want to get involved in the fights around the world and until Pearl Harbor we managed to do so. Pearl Harbor changed our world position and from that day forward America became a player on the world stage.
The United Nations replaced the toothless League of Nations. The point in doing this was to create a forum for which the world's nation's could come together and resolve disputes, only with the United Nations the ability to use military force became possible. In the end the United Nations turned into an anti-West body and anti-Democratic body.
So the smaller groups of nations aligned; the G7 which comprises of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom, United States. The "G" standing for group of richest countries who share strategic geopolitical interests around the world, or so this is how it began without Russia. In 1998 Russia was allowed to join the group making it the G8 and next year 2014, Putin of Russia is scheduled to be the President of the G8.
The Left has long accused America of being a bully on the world stage and the Iraq war of being a war for oil. I do not dispute oil or energy is a powerful motivator considering a countries future depends on its ability to survive economically. Energy is the lifeblood of G8 countries. This is the reason Russia has put troops in Crimea, a friend of Russia's. The point is to put pressure on Ukraine who has many pipelines for natural gas running through it and therefore it becomes a big deal whose influence it falls under. Many of these pipelines feed Europe. The Ukraine itself is a divided nation between those who want to pull away from Russia and those who want to stay close to Russia. The last election the Russian camp won but when the President began to concentrate power in the executive and dissolve liberties the other side took to the streets in protest. Quite an amazing show of people who remained steadfast for 3 months putting enough pressure on the Russian aligned leader who finally fell from power last week. The Ukrainian Parliament has called for new elections and installed an interim leader.
Putin, however is not willing to chance how things will turn out on their own and therefore Russia put troops in Crimea to pressure Ukraine. This move is the genuine war for oil, or in this case natural gas. There will be no people freed at the end of this exercise, there will be no liberty there will be death and dictatorship.
The G7 will do nothing because the most powerful and richest countries on planet earth are on the verge of bankruptcy. Putin, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, China, & Iran all know it and therefore the power struggle has begun.
For five years now America has been in retreat from the world stage. Under the leadership of Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton, & John Kerry the Russian reset is dead. The smartest people, according to media, didn't see this coming. No matter what Putin said or did nothing was going to upset the media's image of these three being the smartest foreign policy geniuses ever to take the world stage rather than the three stooges they have shown to be.
The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have eroded our military and between the costs of war and the domestic spending we are broke. Putin has shown the world he is not stupid and from Syria to Iran and now to Ukraine he has demonstrated he is ready for the world stage. Putin has humiliated and shown the world America is weak and feckless and if they want to survive they better align themselves with Russia. And so they are.
Just remember though Putin and his friends are the genuine article when it comes to greed and hunger for power. There will be no morality questions asked in the Kremlin. The only question will be how can we gain more power and money for mother Russia?
The Left has won America is in decline only Utopia is not on the horizon.

The Leftist Mind & the psychological political madness they embrace...
February 21, 2014
May you live in interesting times...
The dictatorship laws of January 16 were obviously based on Russian models, and were proposed by Ukrainian legislators with close ties to Moscow. They seem to have been Russia’s condition for financial support of the Yanukovych regime. Before they were announced, Putin offered Ukraine a large loan and promised reductions in the price of Russian natural gas. But in January the result was not a capitulation to Russia. The people of the Maidan defended themselves, and the protests continue. Where this will lead is anyone’s guess; only the Kremlin expresses certainty about what it all means.
The protests in the Maidan, we are told again and again by Russian propaganda and by the Kremlin’s friends in Ukraine, mean the return of National Socialism to Europe. The Russian foreign minister, in Munich, lectured the Germans about their support of people who salute Hitler. The Russian media continually make the claim that the Ukrainians who protest are Nazis. Naturally, it is important to be attentive to the far right in Ukrainian politics and history. It is still a serious presence today, although less important than the far right in France, Austria, or the Netherlands. Yet it is the Ukrainian regime rather than its opponents that resorts to anti-Semitism, instructing its riot police that the opposition is led by Jews. In other words, the Ukrainian government is telling itself that its opponents are Jews and us that its opponents are Nazis. Contiue here.
Then there is this...
Author and columnist Peter Beinart called last month for the administration to boycott the group’s annual conference next month and when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio offended his liberal fan base by endorsing the group, the writer was among a host of left-wing celebrities who signed a joint letter warning the mayor that he risked their ire by aligning himself with AIPAC. That letter set off a controversy since two of those who joined with Beinart to denounce AIPAC were prominent Manhattan Rabbis Rolondo Matalon and Felicia Sol. When some of their congregants at Congregation B’nai Jeshurun expressed their outrage at having their house of worship implicated in a scurrilous attack on AIPAC, Beinart, who mocked their support of Israeli democracy, in turn denounced them. Now Rabbi Eric Yoffie, former leader of the American Reform movement, has weighed in on the issue in an honorable attempt to try and put this matter in perspective in a Haaretz column and I believe his thoughtful article deserves a response.
Finally, there is this...
Remember Anders Breivik, the Norwegian man who carried out terror attacks including the bombing of an Oslo government building and mass shooting at a Workers’ Youth League camp, killing 77 people and injuring 319 more in July 2011?
Much more important, and universally overlooked, was the news that came to light last month: Breivik released a letter to the international media indicating that he had intentionally portrayed himself as a counterjihadist and Zionist in order to trick the media into attacking these very people and to cover up his true allegiance to “nordicists” and “ethnocentric nationalists” (i.e. neo-Nazis).
Attacking Diversity of Thought
Attacking Diversity of Thought
By Jonah Goldberg
Cancel the philosophy courses, people. Oh, and we’re going to be shuttering the political science, religion, and pre-law departments too. We’ll keep some of the English and history folks on for a while longer, but they should probably keep their résumés handy.
Because, you see, they are of no use anymore. We have the answers to the big questions, so why keep pretending there’s anything left to discuss?
At least that’s where Erin Ching, a student at Swarthmore College, seems to be coming down. Her school invited a famous left-wing Princeton professor, Cornel West, and a famous right-wing Princeton professor, Robert George, to have a debate. The two men are friends, and by all accounts they had an utterly civil exchange of ideas. But that only made the whole thing even more outrageous.
“What really bothered me is, the whole idea is that at a liberal arts college, we need to be hearing a diversity of opinion,” Ching told the Daily Gazette, the school’s newspaper. “I don’t think we should be tolerating [George’s] conservative views because that dominant culture embeds these deep inequalities in our society.”
Swarthmore must be so proud.
Over at Harvard, another young lady has similar views. Harvard Crimson editorial writer Sandra Y. L. Korn recently called for getting rid of academic freedom in favor of something called “academic justice.”
“If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals simply in the name of ‘academic freedom’?” Korn asks.
Helpfully, she answers her own question: “When an academic community observes research promoting or justifying oppression, it should ensure that this research does not continue.”
One could easily dismiss these students as part of that long and glorious American tradition of smart young people saying stupid things. As Oscar Wilde remarked, “In America the young are always ready to give to those who are older than themselves the full benefits of their inexperience.”
But we all know that this nonsense didn’t spring ex nihilo from their imaginations. As Allan Bloom showed a quarter century ago in The Closing of the American Mind, these ideas are taught.
Indeed, we are now up to our knees in this Orwellian bilge. Diversity means conformity.
Let me invoke personal privilege by citing a slightly dated example. When the Los Angeles Times picked me up as a columnist in 2005, Barbra Streisand publicly canceled her subscription in protest (I’m proud to say). You see, Streisand’s friend, iconic left-wing columnist Robert Scheer, had been let go. And I was one of the new columnists brought on board. This was an outrage.
“The greater Southern California community is one that not only proudly embraces its diversity, but demands it,” Streisand wrote to the Times in a syntactically impaired rant that read a bit like one of those letters I occasionally get from prison inmates who’ve memorized words from a thesaurus without fully understanding what they mean. “Your publisher’s decision to fire Robert Scheer is a great disservice to the spirit of our community. . . . So although the number of contributors to your op-ed pages may have increased, in firing Robert Sheer [sic] and putting Jonah Goldberg in his place, the gamut of voices has undeniably been diluted.”
Nearly a decade later, I still don’t know what it means to dilute a gamut of voices. But I do know what she meant by “diversity.” It means: “people who agree with me.” It’s lazy and insipid shorthand for “left wing.” After all, by the normal metrics of identity politics — race, religion, gender — Scheer and I are largely interchangeable. Where we differ is ideology. And ideological diversity is the only kind of diversity the Left finds offensive.
Which brings us back to the sages of Swarthmore and Harvard. They at least understand that ideological diversity is actually, like, you know, a thing. They just think it’s a bad thing.
More pernicious, however, is that they believe the question of justice is a settled matter. We know what justice is, so why let serious people debate it anymore? The millennia-old dialogue between Aristotle, Plato, St. Augustine, Aquinas, Machiavelli, Rawls, Rorty, Hayek et al.? Shut it down, people. Or at least if the conversation heads in a direction where the Korns, Chings, and Streisands smell “oppression” — as defined solely by the Left — then it must not be “put up with.” Diversity demands that diversity of opinion not be tolerated anymore.
The myth of ‘settled science’
I repeat: I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier. I’ve long believed that it cannot be good for humanity to be spewing tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. I also believe that those scientists who pretend to know exactly what this will cause in 20, 30 or 50 years are white-coated propagandists.
“The debate is settled,” asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. “Climate change is a fact.” Really? There is nothing more anti-scientific than the very idea that science is settled, static, impervious to challenge. Take a non-climate example. It was long assumed that mammograms help reduce breast cancer deaths. This fact was so settled that Obamacare requires every insurance plan to offer mammograms (for free, no less) or be subject to termination.
Now we learn from a massive randomized study — 90,000 women followed for 25 years — that mammograms may have no effect on breast cancer deaths. Indeed, one out of five of those diagnosed by mammogram receives unnecessary radiation, chemo or surgery.
So much for settledness. And climate is less well understood than breast cancer. If climate science is settled, why do its predictions keep changing? And how is it that the great physicist Freeman Dyson, who did some climate research in the late 1970s, thinks today’s climate-change Cassandras are hopelessly mistaken?
They deal with the fluid dynamics of the atmosphere and oceans, argues Dyson, ignoring the effect of biology, i.e., vegetation and topsoil. Further, their predictions rest on models they fall in love with: “You sit in front of a computer screen for 10 years and you start to think of your model as being real.” Not surprisingly, these models have been “consistently and spectacularly wrong” in their predictions, write atmospheric scientists Richard McNider and John Christy — and always, amazingly, in the same direction.
Settled? Even Britain’s national weather service concedes there’s been no change — delicately called a “pause” — in global temperature in 15 years. If even the raw data is recalcitrant, let alone the assumptions and underlying models, how settled is the science?
But even worse than the pretense of settledness is the cynical attribution of any politically convenient natural disaster to climate change, a clever term that allows you to attribute anything — warming and cooling, drought and flood — to man’s sinful carbon burning.
Accordingly, Obama ostentatiously visited drought-stricken California last Friday. Surprise! He blamed climate change. Here even the New York Times gagged, pointing out that far from being supported by the evidence, “the most recent computer projections suggest that as the world warms, California should get wetter, not drier, in the winter.”
How inconvenient. But we’ve been here before. Hurricane Sandy was made the poster child for the alleged increased frequency and strength of “extreme weather events” like hurricanes.
Nonsense. Sandy wasn’t even a hurricane when it hit the United States. Indeed, in all of 2012, only a single hurricane made U.S. landfall . And 2013 saw the fewest Atlantic hurricanes in 30 years. In fact, in the last half-century, one-third fewer major hurricanes have hit the United States than in the previous half-century.
Similarly tornadoes. Every time one hits, the climate-change commentary begins. Yet last year saw the fewest in a quarter-century. And the last 30 years — of presumed global warming — has seen a 30 percent decrease in extreme tornado activity (F3 and above) versus the previous 30 years.
None of this is dispositive. It doesn’t settle the issue. But that’s the point. It mocks the very notion of settled science, which is nothing but a crude attempt to silence critics and delegitimize debate. As does the term “denier” — an echo of Holocaust denial, contemptibly suggesting the malevolent rejection of an established historical truth.
Climate-change proponents have made their cause a matter of fealty and faith. For folks who pretend to be brave carriers of the scientific ethic, there’s more than a tinge of religion in their jeremiads. If you whore after other gods, the Bible tells us, “the Lord’s wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit” (Deuteronomy 11).
Sounds like California. Except that today there’s a new god, the Earth Mother. And a new set of sins — burning coal and driving a fully equipped F-150.
But whoring is whoring, and the gods must be appeased. So if California burns, you send your high priest (in carbon -belching Air Force One, but never mind) to the bone-dry land to offer up, on behalf of the repentant congregation, a $1 billion burnt offering called a “climate resilience fund.”
Ah, settled science in action.

The Media begins its campaign for the Democrat Party in the Senate
Politico gives a two page wet kiss for Democratic Congressman running for the open Senate seat in Michigan. The article is an amazing display of media "inequality" lacking the "justice" we voters should expect from the 4th branch of government.
The framers gave full throated freedom to the press in the first amendment protecting their ability to report honestly about the most powerful people in our country and yet they willingly act like a government run apparatus for the Democrat party.
The first 3/4 of the first page is dedicated to telling you how Congressman Peters, Democrat is braving the snowstorm in 3 degree temperatures meeting and greeting the people, one by one. Careful never to mention any positions Peters takes on any issue. At the bottom of the page, knowing most readers don't even get this far, Manu Raju (the "journalist") begins to tell you about Peters opponent, the Republican who is running from her " fiercely conservative views."
Manu proceeds to lay out the state of Michigan's views that help the Democrat side of the equation never bringing up Peters views on ANYTHING. The writer pretends to use Peters arguments to attack the Republican but carefully uses the Republican attacks without assigning any positions taken by the Democrat. It is a masterful way the media uses its influences and biases to protect the Democrat party. It is also a demonstration of the abuse of power the Leftist media uses to cheat for the Democrats. They use the same tactics on the network broadcast news channels, all but Fox News the only news organization that doesn't tow the Democrat party line.
The media and the White House constantly attack Fox News and quote them out of context, because a different point of view cannot be tolerated. The Left claims to be the party of tolerance yet tolerance of a different point of view must be silenced. If the Republican party thought the media love fest with Democrats was over the way they created and molded Barak Obama they are wrong. The Left well understands they are on the verge of the Utopian government they've always dreamed of that means full throated fight for every Democrat Senate seat they can save in order that Republicans don't gain control of the Senate in 2014. It's going to be a frustrating time and we better get candidates who believe in their ideas and are willing to fight for them, otherwise Obamacare and all the other abuses of power this White House and its regulations happy Department heads have used over the last five years will complete the radical transformation Democrats have had since the days of the Soviet Union when their dreams fell apart.

When the state runs things
Power & Control the real heart of the ACA
My cousin, who if she voted, undoubtedly voted for Barak Obama. She and her sister were tutored by 60's parents, public schools, and radical professors' in college who taught them the profundity of social justice. Being brainwashed into believing the deep taught logy of Leftism she learned, Democrat good, Conservative bad. All Democrat ideas are moral and just and all Conservative ideas are stingy, old, and immoral.
It is this deep thinking, along with one sided information and a closed mind which has brought America to the state she currently finds herself in. Though I am sure she, like many others who devout believes, the Democrat health insurance power grab was going to be good, just, and moral for all. That maybe being sent home with a pain pill rather than getting a pace maker when the state deems you "too old" (Gee, imagine if George Bush said that?! I have no doubt he would have been labeled a senior citizen hater or a geriatric-a-phobe.) When Barak Obama says it, he is wise and understands the money needs to be spent on those who can contribute to the state and not be a drain on it.
I don't mean to pick on my cousin, she is a wonderful person and so are her parents. I can't tell you how many times my car broke down and my Uncle played on-call mechanic for me. He repaired my cars when I was young when I am sure he had better things to do. He did these things because he is a good person.
The problem is they think the state should do and take care of people too. They are aware of the corruption but would rather have the state be corrupt then tolerate a business's corruption.
Recently, now 12 weeks ago, I underwent spinal surgery due to a herniated disc which was putting pressure on the nerve. The pain was intense and the only way I tolerated it was being heavily medicated.
My cousin has the same injury which occurred the same time mine did.
Her disc too is degenerative and therefore surgery is most likely probable. She is experiencing a foot drop and numbness (I didn't have such bad symtoms), this if left for too long will cause permanent damage.
She was told her insurance, Kaiser, would not be in effect until February 1, 2014. Although her other insurance policy would have covered the needed MRI, Obamacare declared her policy crap and her policy was cancelled.
She previously only had a $30 co-pay with zero deductable. She now has a co-pay and a few thousand dollars in deductibles.
Three months have passed and she has yet to see a surgeon.
First she had to jump through hoops in order to get the MRI covered, that took a month. I had my MRI done the day my herniated disc occurred. She has waited a month to see a Physician's Assistant to determine if an epidural or surgery should be performed, that happens next Monday. I had the epidural done the next day and surgery performed 5 days later.
I admit I have advantages, my husband is a PA who specializes in Spinal Orthopedic surgery and Neurosurgery.
I have recovered and am strength training under the guidance of a trainer who specializes in spinal injuries. The average person will not have
this luxury any more. You see this is the standard care people have been getting, give or take a few days. I will continue to have this because my husband is in the health field.
Now, under the new health plan called, the Affordable Care Act, people will endure months of wait time for tests, results, and time to see a PA (not a Doctor). They will wait even longer times before seeing a surgeon who will then make them wait longer for the surgery . By the way, this is something Barak Obama and the elites who wrote this plan will never have to contend with. They will continue to be treated by the best Doctors and immediately because, as George Orwell said, some Pigs are more equal than others.
I have always found it curious why most people don't seem to see this "unequal" social justice. I used to wonder how the Obama's of the world slept at night knowing they will always get the best care while others will get the bare minimum care until I realized that they believe themselves to be better and smarter than "main street."
Do most people realize we will spend trillions of dollars and at the end of this exercise more than 30 million will be without health coverage? We will have longer lines, worse care, and less freedom for the bargain price of $3 trillion. Remember, we underwent this transformation to cover 30 million people who the Democrats said had no health care, another lie they told, but hey whose counting the number of lies anymore?!
I just have one question?
Why does the Left hate people more than they love power?
February 17, 2014
While wages remain stagnant and hours of work decline food, gas, heating oil, & ammo prices soar. The media mentions none of this. Remember when a Republican (George W. Bush) was in office we heard the endless sob stories about the high price of gas costing people their vacations and ability to get to work? Did this problem just go away?
Of course not, just the media being honest brokers did. Companies don't spend 100's of billions of dollars a year in advertisements that don't work. The media understands, out of sight; out of mind. People are busy or stupid -sometimes both, and unless the media reminds them of the problems they should worry about they think the problem is isolated to them or they didn't think about the problem at all. The ore educated our society has become the less common sense we exhibit.
Today gas prices are steady at the prices Bush was being excoriated over, yet you'd think, by the lack of reports on TV, people ceased to stop hurting. Although I admit I am now keeping my house warmer by polluting more, I can't help but wonder how others are doing? In my house, in order to reduce the amount of home heating oil (a cost of $3.59 per gallon) we purchased a wood stove and now burn down trees to keep warm. Part of me isn't upset with it, keeping ambient temperatures is now nearly impossible. In order to heat the house we must burn lots of trees and the temperature, in order to remain "on" through the night we heat up the house to 78 degrees before going to bed. So thank you Leftist loons I no longer go to bed at night cold. I used to wear warmer PJ's and layer blankets, but thanks to high oil prices I just burn paper and wood. That's right all the paper that gets mailed to my house is now kindling. Who needs to worry about recycling anymore we just burn it.
My oil consumption dropped 50+ gallons a month, that's a savings of $180 every five weeks. Of course all things are a trade off, I'm burning lots of wood, the smog is evident every time I walk out and see the smoke pouring from the chimney, but hey, the smell of a fire burning is so pleasant. My heating oil consumption has dropped a little, and those pesky trees which block my view of the sun will soon be a thing of the past.
The sun, which environmentalist Wacko's tell us has nothing to do with the earth being hot or cold will soon be blocked by smoke. Did anyone ever stop to think the reason temperatures have ticked up a degree (that's right all the hubbub is over one degree more in 100 years) is because in the 1970's we started worrying about pollution and began to clean up our act? Could this have caused a layer of smog to diminish and allowed the sun to shine through more brightly? Of course it's possible but you'll never get the Wacko's to admit it because then we would have to say their policies were "killing" us and what political fun would that be?
Food prices are now soaring too thanks to Obamanomics and the Fed. All the printing of that "free" money is coming home to roost. So what will people do? Since its dairy and meat which are seeing the double digit rises in price people will turn to starches and carbohydrates. This will create a greater increase in peoples girth and then the Left will start regulating food consumption. See how things work? It's an endless vicious cycle the Left creates over and over in order to control people. However they mean well and that is all that counts for these mindless Do-gooder's and their brain dead followers. The same college educated folks who were taught to think cloth diapers are better for their children and the environment will feel better. Later we will find out they have hurt us more than helped us, but by then enough time will pass they will have forgotten it was the Leftist Wacko's who told us cloth diapers were wonderful before they became bad again.
Just like paper bags were bad because we were killing all the trees, so we turned to plastic bags, they were good until they were bad. Now we are into cloth bags. Though all the stories of how these bags are beakers for fungus growth are hidden, the college educated class continues to believe they are better and smarter for using them, until they are led by the media to understand the cloth diapers and cloth bags are bad.
Ammunition prices don't affect everyone, but it does affect the ability of my family to properly defend itself because it inhibits the ability to practice effectively. For those of you who can't understand how I added those two items up please allow me to type slower for your consumption. Higher ammo prices means I don't practice much, I horde the ammo I have. This, of course to you idiots, will conclude means I shouldn't have a gun rather than reducing the price to make practice more cost effective giving a greater degree of control to the people.
I'm curious has anyone noticed there seems to be an uptick in police shootings? Is there more crime? Is there better policing? Maybe our police have been turned into aggressive military on our streets since 9-11-01 and this coupled with more petty crimes are the reason more people are being shot by police? All I know is at this time and place I have never experienced more unease with the people in my neighborhood and the police patrolling my streets, how is this good for society?
Throughout history when the Left is in accent Anti-Semitism rises, freedom diminishes, and wars
follow. The last century is evidence enough, but the world is being told Conservatism is bad and the useful idiots believe them and that is the end of that. I'm tired of trying to wake up the Zombies
they will contine to believe Conservatism is bad because they are the media lapdogs and delusion is their world.
