Our Ever Changing HealthCare Law

Just what healthcare law did the Supreme Court uphold anyway?

Was it the Affordable Care act of 2010 or the 14 different versions of that law that has been passed to the American public by word of mouth from the White House?

Was it ever even a law? I've heard it was and people are acting like it was a law but there doesn't really seem to be a law.

As the late, great Harry Nilsson wrote in his epic story The Point: "A point in every direction is like no point at all!"

When you try to cover everything, you end up covering nothing.
We have no President and we have no Healthcare Law.

Not if you don't want it to be at any rate.
Unlike what you may be reading in the government newpapers and hearing on the government news channels, the Affordable Care Act is not what President Obama says it is whenever he gets around to telling us what it’s going to be about THIS WEEK. Has anybody check the latest presidental TWEET?

In the 237-odd years that the country has been the United States, laws have tended to be more static in the past once they are signed into law. Now they are anything someone might tell you they are.
What makes anyone believe that any of this is going to be enforceable?

Challenge away o’ folks who still have enough money to actually be able to afford justice in this country, you will have this law tied up for a decade. All you have to do is ask for a dated copy of the new provisions passed by Congress. What? It WASN’T passed by Congress? Well then, were the new provisions signed by the President? They WEREN’T? Trying to find somebody who can interprete THE AIR will be a daunting task don't you think? Or maybe they just find some crazy homeless person who'll wave his hands around and tell the court what it's all about. And who's to say they would be wrong?  
And how the hell is the IRS going to enforce these tax penalties? Challenge away you scofflaws. The wheels of justice have been moving slower than ever before and will most likely grind to a halt over numerous and consistent court cases asking for proof of the new measures.

There is no law, not this law not ANY law anymore.
Maybe it won't be long now before the police will be shaking pedestrians down for cash and he courts will fine you for just about anything you can think of. The country is descending into one big  money-grab.  

It's been the American Way for way too long. You can live like a cricket and spend everything you earn and at the end of the day the government will take care of you. You can toil like the ant, scrimp and say and all you do is end up paying for the crickets healthcare plan. So why bother?

Forget Congress, they aren’t enforcing their own laws and have passed laws exempting them from being subject to laws in the first place which makes me wonder if they are actually subject to the laws they’ve passed making them not subject to the laws they have passed. Right?
So do as you please these days. Get health insurance, don’t get health insurance. Pay the fine, don't pay the fine or don't even pay your medical bills. They can't do anything to you by law anyway. They can't charge you interest and they can't put it on your credit report. All they can do is have someone call you on the phone so what the hell does it matter anymore?

Doctors should go back to the way things were before Medicaid and the meddling of the government in the business of providing healthcare. They should go back to coming to your home to give your kids a shot in the ass. Growing up in the Boston Projects, we had a doctor who visited our place to do just that since when one kid in the project got the measles, all the kids got the measles. The doc would come buy, give you a shot (Penicillin, remember those days before they shot all that shit into the livestock and screwed everything up?).
Anyway, the doctor gave us a shot in the patoot and my mom paid him and he left. No office manager, no insurance claim, no discount, no offset, no government overhead and no bullshit.
And it all worked just great. I got a shot in the butt, the measles went away, the doctor got paid and my mom got some sleep.

So what went wrong?
Government of course, solving problems that weren’t problems in the first place and buying their way into the industry with promises to the doctors that they wouldn’t lose a dime if they went along with their plans. And in the beginning they didn’t.

But look at them now.
Doctors have to consolidate their services in order to survive. There aren't many single doctors offices anymore. Now doctors have to be affiliated with a larger medical group to absorb all the liabilities that come with the field and that the ACA never even addresses.

Doctors should drop all insurance carriers period, especially the government ones that drive up the costs of patient care and just administrate their own billing. They’ve got their own billing and  collections departments now already anyway; they wouldn’t even have to gear up. All they have to do is drop the government plans and quit taking their filthy money. And need I remind anybody that it’s OUR filthy money which has gone to everything BUT us and which is used to batter any dissatisfied citizen challenger into the ground.  The government has taken all the resources before you can even think to fight them.

So then let the government take everybody to court and try to drive "rouge" medical centers out of business. Like they aren’t going to be forced out of business ANYWAY by ever increasing government intervention and the prospect of receiving ever decreasing payments for the services they provide. Their dead ducks either way so they might as well fight for their rights and their livelihood.
Let the government try to enforce their ever-changing illegitimate bullshit iron-gloved Healthcare boondoggle of a law that nobody on God’s Green Earth really knows what it does anymore.

So ultimately we should pay our doctors directly and CUT OUT THE MIDDLEMAN, namely THE GOVERNMENT and let them try to stop us.

National Public Radio: Last Believers in Global Warming


It’s about time that our nationally sponsored government radio stations across the United States just drop the whole Climate Change/Global Warming shtick once and for all since it’s quite obvious that nobody inside or outside of the public sector still believes it was actually happening.
The revelations of collusion between the Global Warming science “community” has long been brought to the light of day as is clear and mounting evidence,formerly suppressed or just never reported in the mainstream, revealing that for the last 17 years temperatures have not been rising but actually dropping after all.

Even staunch Leftists have been coming clean about the situation, the smartest of them already seeing the writing on the wall. Some have simply stopped attacking the Denialists and have just shut their mouths already.  Perhaps they can tour the talk circuit with the tagline: “I was a Climate Change believer” thereby gaining some added sustenance by reveling how they were duped or coerced by an evil government management into going along with the game. Maybe they could go on Oprah and talk about how they feel so used.
But tune into any NPR radio station any time of any day and you will never know that anything has changed. They will have either a panel discussion or a guest commentator who talk about how "more needs to be done" concerning the “settled science” of Climate Change which is how they’ve been trying to structure the argument ever since they realized their pseudo-science wasn’t holding up to scrutiny. 

Changing the name, it was hoped, would lend an air of ambiguousness to their Climate Science since people were seeing through their bogus Global Warming cabal that saw people like former democratic presidential candidate for the presidency of the United States, Al Gore, go from a lowly Millionaire to a more respectable Billionaire and saw just oodles of public funds funneled to American universities and scientists to “study” the problems in the fevered hope that someday they will find a solution, wink wink!

And the change in semantics was so clever, so subtle, one day the phrase is Global Warming and then the next day it’s Climate Change and so NOBODY NOTICED!
But it is a new world these days. There are no secrets. Or at the very least there aren’t enough people who can keep a secret anymore and so everything comes out eventually.

So it’s time for the good Leftists over at The People’s Radio Station to just drop the act. They’ve been able to keep a straight face for this long and that’s a marketable skill when one works for the government, especially the kind of government we’ve had to put up with for the last couple of decades, but it’s over.
It’s time that someone tell them that the propaganda war is over and THEY LOST.

To continue with an obvious charade is tiresome and, frankly, embarrassing. The money is sure to dry up so isn’t there some “Income Inequality” or “Services Access Disparity” for these good Comrades to jump on now? Surely there is another rainbow to chase now that the Political Lefts Holy Grail has turned out to be a shoddy pewter beer mug.
Maybe they can hold a fund raiser to retrain all the Climate Chicken Little’s to do something else with their lives. Perhaps they could be retrained for a new and completely different line of work. How about Journalism School?

Or perhaps the best of these Global Cooling Deniers at NPR could just transfer over to Bloomberg Radio and add a little more mileage to their careers since it will likely be Bloomberg , the station started by the former Crazed Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg renowned for his Billions of dollars and certifiable odd behavior, that will hold onto the Global Warming party line to the last man, woman and Bolshevik.
But it makes no difference at this point in time since the argument, science, and quixotic belief in Global Warming as a man-made phenomenon is over.

It’s about time NPR got the news.

When Governments Try to Create Markets

It always ends in failure.
When the government decides there is not enough of something and gets involved in its manufacturer, sale and distribution, what soon will follow is Waste, Financial Loss and Corruption.
Example #1: Ethanol

George W. Bush, that Leftist spendthrift in a Republican cloth coat, decides to boost the agricultural industry by requiring the combustible derivative of corn, Ethanol, be a part of ALL gasoline sold in the United States. What a great idea! First the farmers will have a market for their corn since now we HAVE to have a percentage of corn squeezin’s in the nation’s gas tanks. It’s a Biofuel so it will be good for the environment, right?
Well the problem with corn as a crop is that it beats the crap out of the soil and requires intensive fertilization and attention. It’s not a cheap crop to grow. But the government is driving the bus on this industry and so set a very good price for what it will pay for Ethanol. It’s a higher price than the market would pay otherwise. But what the hey, it’s not THEIR money the good Senators and Representatives are playing with, it’s TAXPAYER money and who knows better than Congress about what to do with THAT when there are votes to buy from the Biofuels lobby, the Agribusiness lobby and the Environmentalist lobby even though NONE of them would ever think of voting for a candidate with an “R” by their name BUT they will gladly take the money. Thanks George!

So what happens? The Corn Boom literally caused an environmental disaster!
The fertilizer and insecticide run off from all the land that was thrown over to corn production has been killing our waterways. Land that was not a profitable environment for farming now becomes fields of corn.  If you are a farmer, what now becomes your motivation? “Why am I growing wheat when the government is paying so much for corn? Why am I dealing with dairy cows when the government is paying top dollar for corn?” etc.
Corn is now grown on over 400,000 farms across the nation making the U.S. the number one corn producing country in the world.
But is the nation any cleaner?  That’s a NO. Has the economy been improved by this government intervention in the marketplace? Again that’s a NO. Most of us don’t get to witness the areas of destruction that happens in the nation’s bread basket, and we don’t know what goes on when areas of an industry are never created. We just see the price go up on a gallon of milk or on a loaf of bread but we don’t know why.  Well, this is why.
Example #2: Clean Energy

When there is the Alternate Energy industry. This is an industry with more good intentions than demand behind it. There are many people who like the idea of using solar power and wind energy and in some places it is very practical like the “Cabin in the Clouds” on top of the windiest place on Earth, New Hampshire’s Mount Washington, where solar and wind power is the only source of electricity. But mostly solar and wind power has been a cottage industry since the solar panels, wind turbines and especially the batteries are expensive, providing the user with no monetary savings and the manufacturer with little or no profit.
Enter the U.S. Government!
With its subsidies, tax breaks and outright massive loans to their friends and lobbyists, the Federal government has injected heaping wads o’ taxpayer cash into this industry which have erected big manufacturers of solar panels, wind turbines and high-stress batteries almost overnight. And almost as quickly these manufactures are tanking, filing for bankruptcy protection and taking all that “investment” money with them. You’d think it was the 2007 housing crash all over again. 

By forcing automobile manufacturers to make electric cars that NOBODY wants and that can’t function to an enth of the ability of an internal combustion engine, the government has attempted yet again to make a market where none existed.
Who wants a car that has a range of less than 100 miles per charge, takes hours to replenish that charge, has a very expensive and highly toxic battery which is fully 1/3 the cost of the entire automobile, and even with massive subsidies still costs $40,000.00?  I'll take a show of hands...anybody?
And if you live in New England or worse, the Midwest, where it’s snowy, blowy and friggin' cold all Winter, the range is reduced dramatically by a force no government can legislate, PHYSICS! Batteries just don't perform well in cold weather.
Then there is that little problem of electric cars BURSTING INTO FLAMES.  No problem, we’ll fix that issue eventually, hop in!

This massive “Pay for Influence” racket is a gamble governments make to try to stay in power. Other industries that could have used that money, profitable industries, never got to see it because it was siphoned away from the buying public in taxes and then squandered on a useless commodity that people wouldn’t buy on their own. This is the insidiousness of government intervention in the marketplace.
This also causes a slippery slope for Government since once the effects of their bad policy become evident; there is no stepping back because the groups whose pockets they’ve lined with money now become the enemy, vowing to fight to keep their favors. Even if they do try to pull out of the mess they've made, the markets will be affected by the sudden pullout of funds. Corn prices would plumet to it's actual market rate and corn farmers take the hit until the market can regain it's natural balance.

Another clear example would be the current QUANTITATIVE EASING being applied by the Federal Reserve. If they should suddenly stop buying those Billions of dollars of bonds each month, the Stock Market, being dependent on that ready cash, will have a deep adverse reaction in the short term.  It's quite a hole the Federal Reserve has dug for the financial markets since even the mear talk of backing off their bond buying program shows up on Wall Street's leader board. And to think these guys went to school for this.

Example #3: The Electric Automobile

Yet another example of the government's attempt to create a market where one does not exist.

The "new" electric car is falling short of expectations. Expensive to make, expensive to buy and maintain, they can't compete with the efficiency and reliability of the gasoline engine. If the electric car was a good idea, it would have already been a mainstay in the marketplace already and not a government subsidized novelty item.

Perhaps most people don't realize that the electric automobile has a long history in the U.S. and at the trun of the last centry once competed with the gasoline engine on the open market...and lost.

Since the early 1900s the electric car hasn't really gotten any more efficient. Its range, weight and unpredicatbility in cold weather have not changed much in over 100 years. 

The electric cars biggest enemy is Physics. It doesn't operate well in cold weather and just where do you suppose all this electricity to run them comes from, electric powered power plants? Nope! It's Coal that drives this electric bus!

Electric automobiles have always been a Fad and had we put as much resources into developing a more efficient gasoline engine, Billions of dollars I might add, we coudl well have been seeing gas engines that get 100 miles to a gallon of gas by now.
But we don't get to see what does not get to happen.

The only way the electric car will catch on is if that was the only thing out there for the public to buy. Sorta like the old Soviet "that's all you're going to get" approach to marketing.

Which leads me to the last example...

Example #4 The Mercury Light Bulb

The incandecent light bulb has been outlawed by the U.S. government. If light bulbs are outlawed, only outlaws will have light bulbs. Actually they didn't ban them outright, they only placed a mandate that they reach an efficiency that they cannot reach.

But the result is the same. You will not be able to buy an incandecent light bulb. What you CAN get is the grossly unatractive and somewhat toxic Mercury light bulb. Yes, there is Mercury in them and so you are not really supposed to just throw them away. They should be disposed of in an environmentally safe manner. How's that for convenience? We all know that this is not going to happen.

But the main point is that government once again attempts to make us take a lesser product that has not proven to be popular and isn't even a good source of light.

Summary

This is for all those who still actually believe that Government is the answer to the nation’s problems. This is for people who think the government just has to “pass a law” and it will make things right. This is for people who think that FORCE in necessary to make people to comply with an arbitrary law. You can plainly see that these efforts always end in failure since solving problems is not what motivates government anymore.
Government creates problems it then tries to solve by more government and in the words of that great cartoon character, Rocket J. Squirrel from the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show; “But Bullwinkle, THAT trick NEVER works!”

A government subsidy or assistance may make you happy today but it will only lead to tears tomorrow. Depend on government if you want to cry and if you want to beg. Depend on yourself if you want to prosper and move forward and become a free person.
Recognize that today’s short-money handout is tomorrow’s dependency and a path to servitude. If you think that today you will take it so that your children will break out in the future, you are mistaken. If you as a parent don’t break out now, where will the example be set?

Fight for you human dignity. Fight for your right to grow and to learn from mistakes.
Start today.

Venezuelan Citizenry Losing Moral High Ground


This is the trick of the Socialist System: Make the slaves love their slavery
Make them embrace their servitude and instill the fear that they can’t function on their own without the heavy hand of government. This is where the people of Venezuela are right now. There are many who still understand how their country is supposed to work but they are outnumbered by those who just blindly WANT and will run to the hand that will GIVE it do them. Enter El Presedente Maduro or should I say "Robin Hood".

It is disturbing to read the quotes from the “bargain hunters” queuing up at the Daka electronics chain recently seized by Venezuelan government troops to hear them say they have no love for the government BUT are still all too willing to take a cheap Television basically at the retail electronics chain's and their 500 employee's expense.
There is a lesson to be learned in all of this.

The Venezuelan people have shortages of the most basic products of human sustenance: Chicken, rice, coffee, sugar, cornflour, cooking oil, milk and yes, even the most important paper in any business or home; toilet tissue, and yet will queue up and purchase at a "discount" a Television when Mr. Maduro sends his goon squad to set up an organized looting of a Venezuelan electronics chain. 

People can rationalize anything.
Venezuela USED TO produce rice and USED TO produce coffee, good coffee too but since the government introduced price controls producers of these products dwindled and when the government eventually took over most of the fields, these products have all but disappeared in quantity that can feed a town never mind a nation. This is the same sort of process that led to the former Soviet Union’s disappointing 76 year crop “Drought”.

Yet the recent hordes that lined up as soon as the government solders jailed the Daka chain’s store managers and started selling the inventory at “fair” prices, all that is apparently forgotten and what the government has done is a GOOD THING. It has become obvious that the Venezuelan people either don’t know or don’t care and for this I have lost my sympathy for their situation since we here in the formerly industrialized Northeastern part of the United States face a similar situation in the future. They have made their choice and they are to suffer the consequences since there will be no one to help them. Socialism isn't about helping oneself unless you include "helping yourself" to the fruits of someone else's labor. But how long will that last?
I hope those TELEVISIONS last awhile since I have a feeling that this will be the last crack most of the Venezuelan people get at them. I find this more than ironic since Venezuela is also a country that can’t seem to keep the electricity running on a weekly basis, having frequent blackouts across the Provinces. The Venezuelan infrastructure is crumbling.

The Venezuelan economy has too much money chasing too few goods. This means that the Venezuelan government has created money in excess of production. That means inflation or rather "Inflación increíble!".

When a government taxes, regulates, price controls and downright seizes the assests of private busnesses, you essentially drive them and the businesses that produce the goods they sell out of business and production halts. The Venezuelan people may love the idea that they have money in their pockets but since the means of production has been confiscated, consumers can't purchase what isn't made. This is the lopsided economic model that Socialism produces and has never failed to reach: Inefficiencies, shortages and hardship.  

In a Free Market system manufacturers will increase supply to meet demand and bring a balance to a products availability and its pricing. This is what leads to new hiring and the growth of industry, production and wealth. Lacking this, Venezuela is a poor country.

But Venezuela does have oil. Venezuela has LOTS of oil. Problem is they can’t seem to get it outta the ground on their own yet they seem to hate the people that help them. They’ve seized oil platforms from private drillers but now those ungrateful people have pulled out of the country so there won’t be any more where that came from.

Taking things from Free Market enterprises does not serve as a long-term economic strategy.

But that's the basic Method of Operation for Socialist/Totalitarian regimes. They HAVE to take from the producers since these systems don't produce. Mr. Maduro’s government, like his predecessor Hugo Chavez, have to continue to seize private enterprises until there is nothing left to take. That's when the failure of these "Business Models" show their gapping flaws: They don't make any money.
And this is all come about because of Capitalism. That’s right. Or to be more exact the Free Market principle of Capitalism which raises many boats and allows for more than a single power structure. This has to go since it is in direct opposition to a Totalitarian power structure. We can’t have multiple groups with resources and means of self-fulfillment and quality of life. Totalitarians everywhere agree that the people must only come to them for sustenance.   

Yet the Invisible Hand of the Marketplace is still all around us, it is born into us right from the very beginning of our lives.  It motivates us to do things for ourselves and by ourselves we can serve others and ourselves at the same time. It raises all boats, or rather all boats that want to float, and rewards those who wish to work and who have a better idea, to reap the benefits of that work and those ideas.

No, it's not Utopia and it has never passed itself off as such. Not everybody makes it to the top of their profession but then again, everybody's idea of the Top is different. You'll at least be better off at the level you achieve then if you never went for it and if you go out to buy  a steak, sushi, chicken or rice, the chances are very good that you'll be able to put your hand right on them and that you can afford to buy them.

Without this Work/Reward dynamic, there are no new ideas, no new industry and no prosperity. If you want something, anything really, understand what it will take to achieve and are willing to do the work for it, you can get it. Better to have a chance on a level playing field and fail than to never get a chance in the first place. To lock oneself in a cycle of dependency is the greatest failure.

The Venezuelan people appear to not realize what an opportunity they have in their hands since they are not without the industrial spirit. They just don’t know who to blame for their current situation. Right now, it looks like THEMSELVES. After close to two decades of Socialist claptrap, it appears a majority will still pull the lever for President Maduro.
Oh, but Capitalists loot and exploit the people! They only work for profit and grow rich through the toil of the downtrodden. Why should the top people in the organization get paid more than the lower people? Why don’t they pay people “Living” wages? It is the Capitalists who have TVs and the people get nothing!

Ok, then feel free to move to Venezuela where they’ve managed to get rid of those evil Capitalists.
They’re doing so much better there.

The NSA: Keeping America Safe from Angela Merkel


We can all sleep more soundly in our beds with the knowledge that the multi-billion dollars spent on the National Security Agency is well worth it so that Angela Merkel won’t be sneaking into the country to carry out her nefarious evil deeds upon an unsuspecting American public.
Our government’s most prominent anti-terrorist organization has taken the necessary steps to insure that Ms. Merkel , along with a reported 35 other world leaders, will not pose a terrorist threat to the United States.
Does anyone actually believe that the NSA is not doing the same thing to the American people? If millions of phone conversations in France, Spain, Brazil and Germany are being monitored, how could the government not monitor communications in the U.S.?  They are supposed to have a warrent here and they're supposed to have probable cause but that means nothing any more. We're told that the White House just didn't know about it, that's all.
And who believes that tight-ass of a president didn’t know about it? The same person who couldn’t delegate the reading of an 1-800 number on TV for his cratering Affordable Care Act and who has the last word on pushing the button on one of our Drones to bring death from above to Middle Eastern terrorists and civilians alike isn’t going to know? Sure he knows.
And yet, according to the administration, they never saw Bengazi coming. Let’s ask Ambassador Stevens about how safe he feels with the NSA monitoring phones and computers. Wait, you can’t, HE’S DEAD!

Let's ask U.S. Boarder Patrol Agent Brian Terry how safe he feels that the U.S. Department of Justice is doing all they can to protect our agents on the U.S. boarder with Mexico. Oh snap! You can't 'cause HE'S DEAD TOO!

What else will Obama and "his people" claim they don't know about?
The NSA and its sister groups the CIA and the FBI are all in place to do one thing first and foremost and that is to keep the people who are currently in power, in power.  This is why they’d rather tap millions of devices in Spain, Germany, Brazil and Russia than find out where all those guns they let walk across the Mexican border went to and who was behind it. Those people are to be protected.
Is protecting the American public really the NSA's top priority?

Who will protect us from them?
Perhaps this is why, as more and more people are growing dissatisfied in this country about the way the present administration is treating private enterprise and squelching individual freedom, that the national policing agencies have become more aggressive towards the citizenry. One need only look at the “non-government shutdown” where the National Parks Service and other “cop” agencies just closed parks and the businesses on them for the sole purpose to inflict pain upon the American Taxpayer who wanted to frequent them. An especially smart thing to do given the current state of the economy. But it wasn't about being smaret, they just wanted you to know that it’s THEY that control access and you…do not. Ditto concerning your privacy.
But it looks like the cat is out of the bag about the United States ambitious attempt at becoming the worlds new evil empire despite an 11th hour charge by the National Media outlets that are printing accounts of how other countries are spying on us also. Too late.
So once again it's the United States that proves the biggest threat to the United States, the biggest casualty being our credibility. How does it look now when we condemn hackers from around the world and it turns out we’re hacking almost every device on the plant, certainly every wireless device.
Thanks to Edward Snowden, everybody knows. The problem now is what are we going to do about it?

Karma Bites Big Government Healthcare in the Ass


A funny thing happened on the way to the takeover of the American Economy...The Totalitarians forgot that they don’t know how to do it.
Just like when would-be Captain Hillary tried to take over back in 1993 and then realized she couldn’t actually fly the USS Enterprise, the Imperial President has been shown what happens when ideology slams into that hard stone and unforgiving surface called: Reality.

They say Karma never loses an address and right now it’s hitting 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20500 pretty hard.
And why not since what the Obama Regime and their cadre of Communist traitors to the American Way deserve everything the thinking American is currently powerless to give them: Some Comeuppance.

But it’s not like anyone will actually lose their job over it or that anything will change in the short run. In the Obama government there is no accountability, only excuses.
We all know that this government’s idea of success is not in the execution of any of their counter-intuitive Communist programs; it is only that they come into existence and in this case that driving the best healthcare system the world has yet to witness into the ground is not the point.
The point is that they were able to force you into it like it or not.
 
That National Healthcare doesn’t work and will never work is no longer the government’s problem. The law as passed does not apply to them or their Bolshevik brethren so it’s now OUR problem.

But the longer this goes on the more will be affected just the same. As hospitalization becomes more and more dangerous, people will stay away. As hospitalization becomes more and more expensive, the people who still have to pay will stay away. As more and more doctors come from Third World hell holes, EVERYONE will stay away unless they’re so sick they figure a 50/50 chance at survival is now good odds.  Just think about all the good those Cuban doctors did for Hugo Chavez.
National Health Care will ensure that there will be a two tiered healthcare system just like the one England has: Those that have money pay for good care. Those that don’t take their chances in the standard sub-standard Death Spiral known as the National Health System. Good doctors will become very hard to find and will be able to name their price outside the system. 

Only people like millionaire Canadian Premier Danny Williams, who headed south for his heart surgury rather than have the procedure done in a Canadian facility, will be able to afford to go to a good U.S. hospital. The rest of us will have...less.

Technological advances will be sacrificed to the bottom line since the system will quickly become cash poor. The Massachusetts model and the reason Mitt Romney lost the last presidental election, has never been in the Black. The only reason it's still running is because Governor Deval Patrick, a close personal friend of Mr. Obama, has thrown ever increasing resources at it on one end while trying to keep spending down on the other. It isn't working since the Massachusetts tax rate keeps increasing to keep up with MassHealth's expenditures. Co-pays and Deductibles for the people paying into health insurance plans continue to climb and have doubled in as little as four years. RomneyCare has made Massachusetts the most expensive state in the union for healthcare while emergency room visits and wait-times for doctor visits have increased. No, there is no cure in RomneyCare.  

There is no free lunch and you can’t give anything away for free for long. To defy this most basic economic rule is like attempting to defy gravity. You will ALWAYS fall back to Earth.  
The Obama government is trying to keep secret the numbers and the money it’s giving away for the Food Stamp program, the Welfare Program, the School Lunch Program and all the subsidies it’s issuing to who knows where and for how long. When this all sees the light of day, it will be astounding. Then we’ll have to put up with the same crap that we heard during the 2007 collapse: How could this happen?

Pul-eeze! It hasn’t happened yet and I’m already tired of it.
So now the latest pie-in-the-sky plan that never was intended to actually help anybody but the government cronies and their big business providers has come to fruition. Well, sort of.

The plan everybody knew would crash and burn is crashing and burning. But there is no pleasure to take from this since it’s not going to go away any time soon unless businesses and people openly defy this law. They should defy this law but will they have the balls to risk being shut down?
It will take companies: insurance companies, healthcare providers, large businesses and small to just decide to not comply.

Everyone affected will either need to raise a stink or just walk away so that the NEXT President of the United States will actually have to do something about it since Lord knows the Obama will do nothing while people live in fear of having no healthcare and of having that All-American terror group, the IRS, come for what they have left after what they've already taken for taxes.
President Obama, who has never eve run a hot dog stand yet has managed to become president will continue to spend money the nation has not made for the next two plus years and then pass the whole mess he’s made along to someone else and go down in history as the only president to never submit a budget for the nation despite there being a law that says he is supposed to.

Though we didn’t need any more evidence, the latest avoidable turmoil thrust upon this nation at the hands of the president only underscores that he, Barak Obama, is a failure of epic proportions and history will eventually be allowed to reveal the real extent of it. He never had a plan because he never thought he’d actually get this far but here he is and we’re stuck with him for at least the next two years.
You never know, depending on how the 2014 elections go in the House of Representatives, we could see Obama declare he’ll run for a third term. If the Political Left manages to gain a majority in the House I can see him declare that “There’s more to be done, I’m not finished yet!”

I wouldn’t put it past him.

The Republic’s Last Stand


The holdout Tea Party Republicans are staging a stand for the Republic of the United States. They lose here and there’s no reason to believe they will ever get another chance.
With the government subsidizing minority populations, non-working populations and illegal immigration which as Ronald Reagan so popularly said: “Whatever the government subsidizes, we get more of”.

The biggest mistake of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign was when he said; “We’re going to put the country back to work!” And then they made the distressing discovery that there are a great many people living in the United States these days that don’t want to do just that. Why work when the difference between working and not working has become rather small. People are finding that if they make less, they will receive more from the government. That’s a hell of a voting block they’ve created.
The biggest threat to the individual freedoms of the American people right now is the over reach of the government, it's disregard of the U.S. Constition and it's flagship takeover program, The  oxymoronic Affordable Care Act and everybody who cares even a little bit knows it.

As we can see by the government’s reaction to the so called “Shutdown”, they have taken control of all the public lands and even though they were set aside for “future generations” and for the American people to enjoy, it doesn’t look like this confiscated land is going to be used by anybody but the U.S. government into perpetuity. The government has made no bones about it, these lands are THEIR lands and, surprise, you were never entitled to them and are now not even allowed to LOOK at them unless they say so, so SHUT UP AND SIT DOWN! Call in the guards!
These are the King’s Lands now and you have no right to them even though you PAID for them. This is where our government is today; right back to where we were with King George the 3rd and his haughty Parliament.
This also is just a dress rehearsal for when they can assert control over the public streets to the point where they can keep you confined to your state, your town and even your home. But this assumption is preposterous, surely that can't happen here, right?
So with this all in mind, the lone holdouts in the government right now are the Tea Party candidates trying to keep the rest of the GOP honest. There will not be another chance beyond the discord that will follow after the collapse of the economy and the government to follow. The only question now is when this will happen since the government can keep kicking bricks under the pyramid for maybe even another decade. But the house will fall.

And what kind of life can we expect to be living through the next decade?  Yes, better to fight now and risk the entire nation to collapse economically than to be nickel and dimed to death and drained of our individual resources slowly over the next ten years. The EU and other U.S. debt holders have already been calling for increased “revenue enhancement” in the face of the nation’s mounting debts. And where is THAT money going to come from? Why the U.S. taxpayer that’s who. Like the tax burden isn’t high enough already and with the price increases that nobody seems to be talking about, the situation is shaping up into a Death by a Thousand Cuts. The Middle Class, the people who work, are being drained of its resources and everybody in government has their hand in our pockets.  
But the kicker is they’re just strong arming us more and more. We are denied access to government and the lands they occupy and we don’t have the right to question it, we only have the right to PAY.

So let’s live and die on this new battlefield right now. In a purely figurative sense, it's better to die with our boots on rather than living on our knees because once we’re all flat broke, we won’t have a leg to stand on.
So go for broke boys since we're on our way there anyway.

China Gets Burned by Communist U.S. President

And they have nobody but themselves to blame.

The way I see it, if China didn’t buy all that debt, then Washington wouldn’t have been able to spend it. And if they didn’t sink all that dough into President Barak Obama’s election in 2008 and 2012 then we all wouldn’t be stuck with a guy who is only interested in forcing his Communist Ideology on the United States citizenry and champion the destruction of all that made this nation great. And yet the President has managed to have kept all the parts of the U.S. government machinations that people all over the world decidedly do not hold the U.S. in high esteem for, mainly: War Mongering, Spying, Economic Imperialism and screwing with the politics of foreign nations. Go figure.

So I won’t be crying any tears if and when the U.S. tanks and China is left holding $ 4 Trillion in promissory notes from the U.S. Treasury. That’s the way the cookie crumbles and that’s American Politics.  I just thought the Federal Reserve was just going to devalue the dollar to the point where paying the debt would be as simple as running the printing press but I guess China isn’t going to get even that.  
China's money men are now at risk of having an "accident" since they went all in on the U.S. debt. But countries can and do go out of business. Look at North Korea, they're out of business. The USSR had a big "Going Out of Business" sale sign on their wall in Berlin back in the 1990s so don't say it can't happen and after their debacle with Greece, I wouldn't suspect Germany to offer receivership any time soon. As a shady investment broker once confided to me: “Do you want to know how to make a small fortune in the Stock Market?  Start with a large fortune!” after which he proceeded to put my 401K rollover funds into a high Commission Yield Fund, for him! I learned a lot from that guy. And so will China.  

But seriously, a default is inevitable since the next 2 1/2 years is going to be like this. Just like everybody with a little common sense knew in 2004 that the housing market was going to tank well before it finally did in 2007 and nobody with the ablity to do anything about it did anything about it. So who expects something good to suddenly happen? The Pope maybe but nobody else. Rather we default now instead of defaulting 4 years from now when Hugo Chavez Obama completes his mission.
And the Chinese State should know better than anybody in the world today that Communism doesn’t pay the bills. That’s why they got out of the "Share the Wealth" business and changed over to a market economy some time ago now. It’s still an Imperial Totalitarian State but they’ve obviously got money to burn. And burn, I hope, it will.

It is my profound hope that Speaker Bohner holds the line with my fellow freedom loving Tea Party citizens of the United States House of Representatives and succeeds in defunding the disastrous and devious Nationalization of Healthcare and derails this anti-capitalist demagogue in the White House.

And if it crashes the economy and we default on the nation’s debts, it will be a small price to pay for freedom and the United States will be better off for it in the long run. And a default will be the only way to get the government to stop spending money the nation has yet to earn. China, although not alone in its complicity, has played a very big role in that spending spree.
If a default does come about then the Chinese will have plenty to think about while they’re kicking the Tibetans to death in the streets of their home town, forcing women to have abortions, breathing their fetid air and building their war machines to carry escalate their war-like stature and intimidate thei neighbors.

Good luck with that. We’re all going to need it.

The Government Empire Strikes Back


With the government shutdown it has become clear just how dangerous and vindictive our government has become.
By shutting down enterprises even remotely linked to the government in violation of the law and their leases, the government of the United States has shown it is more willing to punish its citizens than to listen to or even help them. This is no longer the point of their existence.

Government autobots have been given their marching orders and have carried them out to the letter in order to give the government shutdown more of an impact than it would have otherwise. They are trying to justify their existance since we know well more than half of them are not necessary. But they are now carrying on an aggressive campaign against the people who have the nerve to go to work every goddamed day to pay the taxes to pay their salaries. These are the acts of the truely depraved and desparate.

Perhaps this is how terror networks start. The government minions can just come and throw up a sign in front of your business and declare it closed and what are you going to do about it? There is nothing, now, that you can do about it except risk arrest and prosecution for trespassing upon your own enterprise.
This underlines an issue that has been griped about for ages in this nation: That you don’t really get to own anything anymore. Even though the businesses that leased the land from the U.S. Government have a legally binding lease, they were still shut down because the “landlord” simply decides to do so. The government is in violation of the law and of the lease they signed but so what? You’re out because “We Say So!”

But it is all in keeping with the growing trend in the government and it takeover of private enterprise and it’s intrusion into the comings and goings of law-abiding American Citizens.

The government’s spying, paranoia and militarization of local police forces should not be tolerated. Its actions to restrict access to public works and lands THAT THE PEOPLE HAVE PAID for should not be entertained or explained away.
The government is coming after us, the taxpaying U.S. Citizen and the shutdown only underscores its intentions and abilities to shut people out of the political process and participatory recourse.  
But like every totalitarian regime, the most intense scrutiny and repression falls upon the free citizen and not the illegal, the immoral and the criminal. Police the good people and let the rest slide to impose terror and divisive anarchy upon the masses. This is the United States today.

But what can you, as a Citizen do?

If you aren’t willing or find it useless to join a Tea Party group you can still do other things to fight.
  • Don’t go back to government. Boycott it where ever you can and certainly stop giving them your time and your money. 
  •  Skip your hunting or fishing license this year.
  • Check your W-2 and declare 1 or 2 if you’ve declared zero. This puts more money in your pocket and not the governments. Don't use the IRS as a savings plan.
  • Make plans for a modest Christmas with less spending.  
  • Cross the border into a less taxed state for purchases.
  • Use Online Bill-Pay through your bank instead of using the U.S. Postal Service.
  • Avoid the Sales Tax whenever you can by using online secondary market tools like Craigslist.
Anything you knock off your spending also knocks off the tax that goes to the Town, State and Federal Government. It may be a little to you but it adds up. Reduce your "tax footprint". 

Check this: There is a $10.00 tax in the city of Boston per car rental transaction. There is also a parking surcharge of $2.00 per day. Meals taxes can be upwards of 7% of the cost of the meal in any town in Massachusetts. Think about that when you're on your morning coffee run. Think! Gas is taxed at $ .42 per gal ($ .18 to the Feds). Hotel/Motel rooms are taxed at 8.75% in Boston.  It’s a $ 25.00 flat fee in NYC per night. Look up the rates on your local Department of Revenue website and see what their take is on your money.
 
This doesn’t mean going without, it means being wiser with a buck. You’re going to need it anyway in the future.

Refuse to participate in government. Don't cooperate. Skip the census, jury duty and don’t answer demographic questions from government on forms. Refuse to shake a politician’s hand when campaigning. You aren’t free and he’s only campaigning to get on the government gravy train. Don’t back these guys just because they say they’re on your side, ignore them all because, lets face it, they're lying to your face.
Our parents and grandparents sacrificed through the first Great Depression and World War II. They withstood shortages, quotas, alternate day purchases, gas rationing and the lack of goods to help the war effort, for years!

We, on the other hand, have experienced NONE of this and what we consider suffering and sacrifice these days is not having a good connection on our iPad or the cable is on the blink and we can’t watch The Game.
If you can’t manage to go without a fishing license for ONE SEASON or cutting cable or delaying the payments of your medical bills, esentially taking SOME kind of monetary action, then SIT DOWN and SHUT UP. If you are unwilling to cut back for even a little while then it’s obviously not important to you and perhaps you should just GO FISH.

Put your money where your mouth is. Don't pay for a government that abuses you. What good is complaining if you are unwilling to provide anything but Lip Service?
Live it. Tell your friends. Starve the Beast.

Obama Talks Smack at the United Nations



During his speech at the United Nations today, President Obama has vowed to rethink his National Security Agency’s policy of spying on everybody in the world and has instead decided to just spy on American Citizens.
This will help Mr. Obama avoid any more embarrassing foreign privacy issues like the one raised earlier by Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff who somehow misunderstood the intentions of the NSA when it intercepted communications between her and her cabinet members and eavesdropped on Brazil’s U.N. mission and state-run oil company.

“Oops!” Mr. Obama was heard to quip, “But look on the bright side, just look at what we do to countries we DON’T like!”
 Obama went on to note that he doesn’t experience the same outcry at home, “Since my press corps keeps all the important stuff off of the National News.” The Commander in Chief went on to say, "All that talk about upholding the Constitution and all that is dying down. The only thing anybody in the U.S. cares about any longer is when the next iPhone is coming out and the next episode of "Breaking Bad" on cable. I can do what I want here."

President Obama once again repeated a vow he has repeated every year for the last 6 years that he is ready to transfer prisoners out of the military prison at Guantanamo Bay and close it down. He also pledged renewed support for education and economic rebuilding for the people of Egypt, long forgotten since Syria and Iran have pushed their decent into chaos off the American headlines. “Soon I hope to bring the kind of prosperity we have enjoyed the last 6 years in the U.S. to Egypt!” Mr. Obama exclaimed with an emphatic smash of his fist against the palm of his hand. “We’ll fix Egypt!”
Mr. Obama also renewed his vow for peace in the world while warning Syria and Iran that the U.S. will use its “extraordinary military capabilities” to crush anyone who crosses us. “We’re still the world’s policeman and until anybody can knock us off our perch, we’re gonna stay the world’s policeman.” said the President.

And that concluded any real business at the United Nations. Basically it was a typical day.
“Hey, did anyone get a new iPhone this week, aren’t they great?” Exclaimed the U.S. President as he took his Dog and Pony show out of the United Nations building in NYC on his way back to the White House where he still has the important work of sinking the American economy, continuing to wage war all over the world and to feign outrage at just about everything else he cares to meddle in.

U.N. Indisputably Partisan in Syria Report


United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon said Monday that results of a report by U.N. inspectors confirming the use of chemical weapons in Syria are “overwhelming and indisputable.”

Actually there is plenty to dispute in the U.N. examination concerning the use of Sarin gas. Surface to air missles are very portable and both sides have them. There has been quite a bit of talk in the past of Syria Opposition forces, the al-Nusra, being caught in Turkey with Sarin. There were also accounts of Sarin being supplied to the Opposition from Saudi Arabia. The Opposition could have also obtained gas from former Syrian government bases that have fallen into their hands. Of course, nothing of the like shows up in the U.N. report.
It's all well and good to state emphatically that Sarin gas was used in Syria but it carries no weight. It is all a Big Lie to point to the Assad regime when the Opposition had access to the same weaponry and, as we all have seen before, has no qualms about staging a Propaganda Scene as only they can with the occasional unwitting martyr thrown in. Where is the moral high-ground for a group of Muslims who can strap a bomb to a mentally disabled teenager and send them into a crowded marketplace? So now we in the West are to believe that it is THEY who are wronged?


And did the U.N. count all the bodies? Early reports stated that MOST the "dead" were buried quickly since the Opposition "feared spreading contamination". If this is the case then the U.N. could never have counted them. No mention of counting them or exhuming the "bodies" appear. Having the Opposition control this message without independent confirmation simply can not be believed. And the film footage from the Opposition is also suspect. People writhing on a gurney with a oxygen mask on their face only reminds me of the Lebanon war where people were planted in destroyed buildings and when they were "rescued" they'd look up at the sky and blame Israel! I was born at night but not last night.
The United Nations is a juiceless organization propped up by the United States to do it's bidding around the world and their "work" in Syria is a classic case. In the eyes of most Americans they never had credibility and therefore cannot lose any more than they had.
The U.N. remains a joke and a puppet. The American people are tired of being played by our overbearing government and aspiring overbearing governments everywhere.

Obama: Syria Deal Was My Idea!


Below are some of the more prominent excerpts of President Obama's speach to the nation last night in which he outlined his idea of having the Assad regime turn over their gas stockpile to a neutral country.
 
 My fellow Americans:
“Although I still really want to bomb Syria into dust to make up for my administration's past mistakes in this region, this plan would be the best thing for the Middle East and I am really glad I thought of it.”, said the president.
“But by not responding to Assad’s alleged chemical attack, that may or may not have occurred just outside of the Syrian city of Demascus, and that may or may not have resulted in the deaths of 1400 people, 498 who very well could have been children, and who may or may not have been killed at all would be a travesty of justice.”

"I mean, facts are facts, if we don't choose to believe these allegations then how can we use them as an excuse to do what we want in the Middle East? We can't take these rumors of abuse of power lying down."

“But in the sole interest of peace, on the advice and council of Secretary of State John F. Kerry, I have instructed my Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, to put forth the proposal that Mr. Assad give up his stockpile of gas weapons. It’s the right thing to do.”
“I would also like to appeal to America’s overtapped potential for outrage by siting the use of gas in World War I and the Holocaust even though it has no bearing whatsoever on what is going on today in Syria's civil conflct mainly because we had proof back then that everybody was using gas during those world wars and we don’t really have anything beyond a sliver of an allegation today in a country that is no direct threat to the United States.

But lets not get caught up in minutia.

It is my profound hope that by drawing this imaginary line from the past to the present will somehow get me the votes I need in the House of Representatives so that I can bring proper destruction to Syria the only way a guy like me can since the U.S economy is in such a crappy state of affairs under my leadership and my administration is so deeply corrupt that I have to keep bombing Middle Eastern nations and needlessly killing their people so that the mostly disinterested people of the United States of America will not catch on.”

“And furthermore, if this doesn’t help, then I will rely upon my national media Apparatchiks to float the scenario that if Congress doesn’t let me bomb Syria like I truly need to do, that the American presidency will somehow be diminished and that America itself will lose its place in the world as the top nation that bombs the crap out of other countrys every time a sitting president gets in hot water at home. I hope it doesn't come to this."

"I mean, where would we be as a nation if we had to give up our God given right to do this? 
“As a side note, I have called the Nobel Peace Prize Committee this morning and have told them that the medal they gave me 8 ½ months into my first term is in the mail to them Return Receipt Requested.”

Thank you all and God Bless America under my Presidency.

Obama Risks Global Nuclear War


Even if the present administration can't see it, I’m starting to get a picture in my mind about how this Syrian encounter could possibly play out.
The United States has already sent 6 war ships to the eastern Mediterranean Sea.

Russia has 4 ships stationed in Syria with three on the way and has a naval base at Tartus.
If the U.S. does attack Bashir Assad’s positions, what happens if a Russian ship is hit? What also is to keep Russia from putting a “focus” on the Assad opposition to keep them from moving into Damascus upon a U.S. intervention? To avoid a direct conflict with the U.S. in Syria Russia could intervene on behalf of Assad. This could keep the balance of power together.

Since Russia has declared a U.S. intervention without UN involvement to be an illegal act, Putin is too shrewd politically to directly challenge the U.S. once the shooting starts.

However there could be an “incident” where one or the others forces or even a ship is hit. If boots U.S. boots hit the ground in Syria, there will most certainly be Russian boots there as well. With all the ordinance that will be flying around, this could be a problem.
This could escalate a direct conflict with nuclear power Russia. If a Russian ship or Russian troops are hit as a result of a U.S. “surgical” strike, all hell will break loose in the world.

Is this what the U.S government and President Obama wants?
Why would we risk so much based upon a lie?

It makes no sense. It is obvious to everybody but the people in charge of the country that this is in nobodys best interests, especially ours.
What are we doing?

President Obama is a megalomaniac and he and his henchmen in Congress will lead us down the road to ruin if he is allowed to continue.
Who will stop this man?

John Kerry's Legacy: A Political Life of Idiocy and Opportunity.


Is there a bigger idiot in the U.S. government right now than the current U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry?
Even with that lunatic warmonger John McCain running a close second, the big difference there is that John Kerry made his political “bones” as an anti-war advocate during the Vietnam War. John McCain has always been a warmonger. Kerry is a peacemaker suddenly turned war officer.
John Kerry had also publicly thrown “his” war medals over the White House fence in protest of the Vietnam war! Only it turned out decades later that he had thrown someone else’s medals over the White House fence. He actually kept his own and he only owned up to the ruse when a reporter spotted the medals framed and hanging on the wall of his Senate office. So in reality he had thrown another veteran's medals over the White Hosue fence and publicly claimed that they were his own. How stupid is that?

This is a man who had a fire hydrant moved from in front of his Boston condominium at taxpayer expense just so he could park closer to his unit. This man has no shame.
I don't have to go into how his fellow Swift Boat buddies feel about him.
In his "Let's go to War" speech earlier this week, as Secretary of State for the United States of America, John Kerry stood up in front of the American people and lied his ass off…again.

As one person whom I’d identify if I knew his name said it best: “He looked like he was trying to win a high school debate.”
Well said and by the looks of things the American People remain unconvinced.

Why? Because there is no case. Everything John Kerry said is unconfirmed. We don’t know how many people supposedly died in the “strike”, nobody does. We don’t even know if there was a strike. We don’t know who else has poison gas and we don’t know who had actually used it. There is no confirmable proof at this time. And his appeals to our feelings about the CHILDREN were hollow liberal-speak. Nothing we haven't heard from this man his entire carreer as a near-do-well politician who by virtue of being around so long has finally grasped the brass ring of higher power.
But it doesn't matter who is telling the tale, it is still a tale.

Why is it yet again the United States job to teach ANYBODY in the world a lesson in ANYTHING?
The American people, so weary of decades of almost constant warfare, are finally tired of being the World Police. So for the very first time in his bizarre, conflicted and divisive presidency, Mr. Obama is going to state his case to Congress and leave the matter for them to decide.

The last time they got to do this beyond a merely symbolic vote after troops were already sent and involved was World War II. Congress, according to the U.S. Constitution, should be involved in ALL decisions to go to war. This power has routinely been ignored by past presidents since Lyndon B Johnson which resulted in the War Powers Act of 1973 which was passed over the veto of then President Richard Nixon.
  
But now Congress has the chance to re-assert itself into government.  The outrage of the American people is resolute and has shown to be a resounding “NO” when it comes to this latest act of aggression against a sovereign nation.

The eyes of the world will be upon them. Will the do the right thing? Can they?
The world should now learn that they should fight their own battles. With the prospect of having to deal with the possible destruction of their own territories and economies, they all may be more amenable to negotiation rather than pulling some stunt to get the U.S. involved on their side. Those days should be declared OVER.

Other nations may decry the "Fall of the West" and call actually voting on whether to go to war or not a sign of Weakness but the bottom line is that WE THE PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA are tired of spilling the blood of this countries best and brightest for NOTHING and for people who only care about themselves. This includes our own big businesses as well as foreign countries. Our sacrifices have been ignored and our virtues dismissed. We're tired of it and here is the chance we get to state it.

Free trade and non-intervention should return as the policy of the United States of America. We love you all but don’t expect a check.
We should stop funding terrorist dictators everywhere and quit exporting our misery creating infernal machines world-wide. That may sound naïve but look at where the current policy has gotten us. No safer, no richer and has won us no real friends.

The world is full of bad men and lord knows we’ve funded quite a few of them ourselves.
It’s time to stop this cycle of pain and try something else.

Obama Stands Alone at the Missile Silo


Ok, Britain couldn’t make it. It seems THEY need to vote on things like this. Too bad the United States can’t be like that. Ah, the checks and balances of a Democratic nation, remember when?
France, the initial force leading the charge for intervention, was right there behind us until it became politically unpopular to do so.  Although they are still rattling their sword, entering Syria's war on the side of al Qaeda by themselves isn't the best strategy and subsequently they probably won't be making the party either.

That leaves President Obama to “go it alone” and be the world’s policeman by himself…again. But this time he is almost quite literally by himself with a recent poll siting only 9% of the American public is behind the President in his latest attempt at interfering in the affairs of yet another sovereign nation. This time Syria.
A war weary nation has had just about enough of the blatant lies and deceit, the death and the vast secret expenditures, the embarrassments and needless suffering the influence the United States has caused not just in the Middle East but around the world. It just never ends.

"What do you mean you don't want to invade? Are you some sort of ISOLATIONIST?!"

We have truly become the world’s bully, not its savior.  Our fingers are in every pie regardless of want and regardless of need. We don’t NEED to be in Afghanistan any longer, nor Iraq, nor South America, nor Japan, nor Germany, nor Southeast Asia. We aren’t helping ANYONE anymore, least of all ourselves.
Our "Enemies" are the ones of our own making and we never stop warning about THEM. We have grown them and cultivated them like farmers at a stocking pond. We have fed, nurtured and ARMED almost ALL of these despots we now march against. It's almost like we have to build these nations up so we'll have somebody to knock down.
In case you've missed it, we have BIG PROBLEMS here at home that need to be addressed with focus, passion and logic. This will not happen. While President Obama seems to have NO PROBLEM sending troops or bombing faraway countries and killing people from invisible airships, he seems to have MAJOR ISSUES deciding on whether to help small businesses survive in an ever increasing regulatory environment made worse by the added costs of government mandates and taxes. Oh, and FYI, we're BROKE!

The United States ain’t ALL THAT anymore.
We are not the land of the free and the home of the brave. We have become the land of the wage slave and home of the tax minion. We have no say in the foreign entanglements our government decides to enter, we only have the privilege of paying for it. Yet our schools are failing, our youngest generation lies untapped and unproductive, our production decreases and our costs and taxes rise. This is not the American Dream any longer. It has been hijacked by a government more involved in expansion and control than providing justice and security for its people and a level playing field for its businesses.

And here we are, standing at the brink of yet another conflict driven not by reason but by  the desire to conquer or the need to distract.
But this time the American public, like people around the world can clearly see through the deception. It is an obvious lie since we have seen it so many times before over the last five decades. Even the less experienced among us can clearly see the real sacrifice here is the TRUTH.

President Obama, the Nobel Peace Prize winning President, stands alone at the helm ready to push the button and order the military that has, since the very beginning of this nation, sworn loyalty and subjugation to the Presidency of the United States and stands ready to do his bidding.
Can anybody stop this man?
