In Tribute...

The month of October 2009 has been the deadliest month of fighting in the middle east since the start of the war almost 8 years ago. Although great strides have been made in Iraq, Afghanistan is a completely different story.

The current administration has failed to lead on every front, both domestically and especially militarily, Gen McCrystal, Dear Leader's choice to lead in the Afghan theater, requests have gone largely ignored by Dear Leader as he has been flitting around the globe accomplishing nothing. Gen McCrystal has requested 40,000 more troops asap, this was more than 2 months ago, Dear Leader is thinking about it... This is a first for him, we have passed legislation without reading the bills because of made-up crisis and now that a real crisis is presented he is again voting present and failing to take a stand and made a decision, meanwhile our brave men and women are in harm's way and the lack of personnel on the ground only makes it that much more dangerous.

From the HUH? file

Alan Grayson (d) Florida says that 44,000 (.018%) people a year die because they don't have health insurance. That sounds better to me, there were a total of 2,426,264 deaths in America last year. So having insurance seems to be the cause of death for 2,382,264 (.981%) if we follow Grayson's illogical comments, seems that the much more lethal option is to pay for health insurance.

Insurance and reform

(Jenny, this is my offering for the national day of writing)

The way the government views things for much of my life have perplexed me to say the least and infuriated me more than not. This opinion has only solidified under this current congress and administration.

Let's consider insurance, we all have lots of insurance policies to consider, we have renters or home owners insurance, car insurance and most of us have some form of health insurance. If you have bought extended warranties of appliances, cars or a home warranty, these too are types of insurance.

Now let's look at the way we use these insurance policies;

If we have home owners insurance, we only use it if we have a robbery, injury to a visitor, or catastrophic incident like a fire. We do not use this insurance to replace the garbage disposal or paint the house or even to get the house inspected to make sure everything is working okay.

If we have car insurance is is also for catastrophic incidents, accidents, fires and theft. We don't use or mandatory car insurance on oil changes, tires or car washes.

So now let's see what we have in health insurance, certainly a different attitude about it and our physical health is more important than our houses or our cars. There are many levels of health insurance, there is catastrophic policy, it only covers large expenditures like surgery and major health incidents, (heart attacks, cancer, etc) there are also the typical plan that cover your doctors visits and medications and catastrophic incidents. These plans usually have a co-pays. The next plan is what our government officials and many unions have, they are the "Cadillac Plans" these are expensive full coverage plans, no deductibles and include eye care, dental and are the most expensive. The beauty of this is YOU get to decide what you need and how much you want to budget for your needs and abilities.

So my observation is this; The health care reform being designed and bartered behind closed doors and our of the public eye seems to be a hybrid of the whole health care and the Cadillac plans. The proponents claim that people are going bankrupt and we need to save them from this fate. So we are looking at spending an additional 2 trillion dollars for this health plan.
For the record I am 100% against any government involvement in providing health care insurance to anyone, this includes medicare and medicaid and it isn't because I am cold hearted and want anyone to die in the streets, I just think that the free market is a better steward of these institutions. The government should provide some oversight and guidelines to assure that there is equal access to all to buy insurance. They also want to cover illegal aliens (constitutionally it is required that anyone living here has equal access). They also want to cover abortions and sex change surgery. (HMMMM isn't that special?)

Since the government has already committed to medicare and medicaid and the people who have paid into the system are entitled to a return on their mandated investment, this system is a part of our future. And, since this administration and congress seem posed to take control of 16% of our economy and give us the big socialist Universal Health care plan.

My solution to this issue;
I would opine that the government should have a base program for all citizens of the USA, this would be catastrophic coverage only. This would not include preventive care or painting the house. Now if you would like whole health coverage, you can buy that upgrade for yourself and again the same with the Cadillac plans. The cost of health insurance reform would be far cheaper to tax-payers and more people would be saved from that pesky bankruptcy.

There is a video that was funded by left-wing group The Tides Foundation, it is shocking that this is being shown in public schools all over the country. Is your school showing this to your children?

Here is the link the the video on YouTube

Tell me if you agree with this video.

New World Order? - CALL TO ACTION

In December there is to be an international summit on "climate change" in which a treaty will be offered that will force industrialized nations to pay third world countries for the sin of global warming, this is a treaty the Dear Leader will gladly sign, he loved playing Robin Hood. The problem is that at the same time he is giving more money away that we will have to borrow against our children and grandchildren to pay, he is also cede's the US sovereignty in the process, this can not be allowed to happen. I believe any treaty signed by Dear Leader has to be ratified by congress, start now and let your elected representatives know that this is not acceptable and that "We the People" do not cede our independence based on unproven theories and "environmental justice".

I have attached a coupe of You tube links, the first one is the short 4 minute version talking about the treaty and the second is the entire 95 minute speech that refutes that whole theory of global warming. Here is the link to the presentation that he references throughout the 95 minute version. It is well worth the listen.

here is the link to the treaty that is refered to in the last 5 minutes.
