Healthcare, what a deal!

I’m still trying to digest all of this, but it seems to me that we have the same problem with the Baucus bill as we did with the public “option.”

i.e., public “option” will lead to “an (employer) incentive to drop coverage” and the same holds true with Baucus bill.

“An employer mandate tax of $400 per employee that would be an incentive to drop coverage.”

Almost everything I’m reading on this has to do with how this will affect employers who do NOT currently provide coverage.

I’m asking how this will affect employers who DO.

I posted this here:

Sherry,

I totally agree.

Unless I’m missing something, this would be a huge incentive for employers to drop coverage.

Shouldn’t there be two separate provisions:

one for employers who don’t currently provide coverage

and a second for employers who do?

I don’t understand why this isn’t getting more traction.

September 17, 2009 9:02 AM

Anyway, I copied this from above link and then substituted “$400 per employee.”

***

4: Employers to provide health coverage or pay a fee to the government of (depending on version of plan) $400 per employee.

Questions:

-Cost per employee now for insurance on nationwide average is around 9%.  States like NJ, MA, NY, RI… (the community rated states) have higher costs.  High cost state employee now have an incentive to drop coverage and pay $400 per employee instead rather than their current higher costs, right?  Drop coverage => new coverage => possible loss of current doctor.

-Perhaps the $400 per employee surcharge is the WalMart tax (i.e. tax on employers who don’t provide coverage already)? Ah! But i) WalMart DOES favor health reform and ii) WalMart already provide coverage.  Why on earth would WalMart support reform? Answer: because it, with it’s high fixed cost coverage spread over it’s own large population of employees, it will have a competitive advantage over newcomers into the market who’ll now have to pony up $400 per employee to the government.  Clever WalMart. Health reform helps WalMart.  Who’d a thunk it?

***

I’m mostly worried about people like, well like me.

As I stated yesterday,

If  “An employer mandate tax of $400 per employee would be an incentive to drop coverage,” then how would I make up the difference between what I pay now and what it would cost me to go out and purchase a plan from a private insurer or a coop?

If my employer, or my husband’s employer, handed me a voucher, then I guess that makes sense.

I realize this provision is not in any final bill, but I fear it may be.

And the CBO said again yesterday:

“The number of people purchasing individual coverage outside the exchanges or obtaining coverage through employers would decline slightly, relative to currently projected levels.”

Someone, please explain this to me!

Grassley: More Debate Needed

http://www.thehawkeye.com/story/grassley-091709

Grassley said, however, there are plenty more opportunities to make the legislation better. The bill released by Baucus Wednesday will begin to be discussed by the full Finance Committee on Tuesday. After that, it will need to pass the full Senate, and the Senate and the House will have to come to a consensus on the legislation.

“[I]f you don’t have the whole thing worked out yet, it would be intellectually dishonest for me to say, you know, I couldn’t vote for it or vote for it,” Grassley said. “Let’s see what the final package is.”

One imperative along the way, Grassley said is the legislation should have bipartisan support. He said previously that for the bill to have Republican support, from what he’s discussed in his caucus, it should include tort reform but not rationing nor mandatory penalties for employment nor a public option.

    Arizona Senator Jon Kyl’s Analysis of Obamacare (Analysis of BaucusCare)

    Transcript:

    http://hughhewitt.townhall.com/talkradio/transcripts/Transcript.aspx?ContentGuid=d0a2b822-cfee-4b67-b7e6-2936740a8f7c

    EXCERPT:

    HH: What do you think of the Baucus bill, since it is the least ruinous of the American economy and medical system, but still ruinous in my opinion?

    What do you, Jon Kyl, think of the Baucus bill?

    JK: You just said it. It is the least ruinous of the three, and still very ruinous.

    So about all you can say about it is that it does begin to show areas in which there have to be compromise.

    But it provides for a government takeover of health care, it costs almost a trillion, in fact, if you take the true cost, it’s over a trillion dollars.

    It will cut Medicare significantly, hurting care for seniors.

    It’ll mandate that everybody in American have insurance, and as defined by the government.

    It will raise a lot of taxes in order to pay for that insurance for people who can’t afford it, and it will set up a regulatory regime for all insurance, which will end up with “government-run” insurance.

    Now that’s to be distinguished from a government health care plan, or a government-run insurance company.

    (I’m glad Senator Kyl makes this distinction. There is no public “option” or government-run health care in the Baucus bill. Actually he is saying the same thing that Governor Dean said, who favors single-payer. The Baucus bill is about health insurance reform.)

    They call that a co-op, and there’s that in here, too.

    But that’s different from running health care.

    And at the end of the day, this bill puts Washington in charge of all health care in America – the half that’s already provided through Medicare and Medicaid, Veterans and Indians, and now the new provisions that will affect all of the so-called private market.

    (How else do we get everyone covered and get rid of the hated pre-existing condition?)

    (BTW Senator Frist favors individual mandates.)

    Baucus Bill Explained

    http://teapartyhandbook.blogspot.com/2009/09/baucus-bill-explained.html

    Employers will still be required to provide employees with health insurance.

    In order to get employers to drop their coverage on employees and jump over to the government plan, this new plan only charges employers $400 per employee to join the government co-op plan.

    Remember, employers would have an 8% tax penalty if they didn’t cover employees before in HR 3200.

    Consequently, this is much cheaper for employers and they would all drop employee healthcare in favor for the co-op government controlled plan.

    This leaves the employees with NO CHOICE but to take government healthcare.

    This is a subtle way of literally screwing working Americans into joining-up with big government while being told that they will have a choice in the matter.

    This is MOST UNLIKELY!

    (Again, coops are not government-run. But other than that, I agree with this analysis.

    Honestly, I don’t have a problem with shopping around for my own health insurance plan or even joining a coop. I just want to know how I’m going to pay for it!)

    Baucus plan includes compulsory insurance but exempts Health Sharing Ministries

    http://www.theusreport.com/the-us-report/baucus-plan-includes-compulsory-insurance-but-exempts-health.html

    The bill expands Medicaid and opens the door for employers to ditch healthcare completely.

    WSJ said,

    “Those with more than 50 full-time employees must offer coverage or pay a penalty of up to $400 per employee.”

    If you’ve ever run a business, you’ll probably agree that $400 penalty will be cheaper than providing insurance.

    Thus this is a mini-door, one of several including public co-ops, to the public option leftwingers want.

    It also moves perk dollars from the individual to the federal revenue pool.

    Defending the Plan

    http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aomsJiZyr0_Y

    Senator Kent Conrad, who worked with Baucus on his legislation, defended the plan as a disincentive for costly plans that encourage unneeded care.

    “If we’re going to get on a different course, a sustainable course, we’re going to have to make changes,” Conrad said.

    Baucus also dropped a mandate, backed by many Democrats, that all employers offer health coverage or pay a penalty. Under his plan, companies with more than 50 full-time workers that don’t offer insurance would pay a fee for every lower-income employee who qualifies for a new tax credit to obtain care. The maximum penalty would be $400 per worker.

    In lieu of the public option, he proposed $6 billion in seed money to set up nonprofit cooperatives that would compete with companies such as Hartford, Connecticut-based Aetna Inc.

    (Again I really don’t have a problem with these coops, I just want to know how am I going to pay for a plan if my employer dumps me and elects instead to pay the $400 instead of the $10,000 it currently pays?

    Believe me, we won’t qualify for any subsidies. We never qualified for any financial aid for either of our children, and instead had to go deeply in debt borrowing from private lenders.)

    Pelosi punts on ACORN funding ban

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking to reporters during her weekly press conference just now, refused to say if she would support a Senate move to block ACORN from getting contracts from HUD.

    Instead she said the House Appropriations Committee would subject the group to “tough scrutiny” following revelations that two ACORN staffers were caught on tape apparently offering tax advice on how to set about a youth prostitution ring. But she portrayed it as a few bad apples discrediting an organization with “hundreds” of honest organizers.

    “Any group that receives any funds from the federal government needs to have tough scrutiny applied to it,” she said, reflecting on the widely viewed video of the ACORN employees chatting amiably with a conservative activist posing as a pimp. “I think it’s — what would be the appropriate words? — despicable … but in any event it’s totally unacceptable and in my view inexcusable.”

    She added that ACORN was “an organization of hundreds of people, a few people, um, have embarrassed ACORN, and I think they are having their own investigation into it, but we have to have our own scrutiny.”

    When I asked her what that scrutiny would be, she added, “It’s up to the Appropriations Committee to scrutinize ACORN or any other group that receives money from the federal government that has such an allegation against it.”

    The Goldstone report

    http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5ioi_0jtO9RjMwPNRoXNCndRPRq3gD9AP81600

    Netanyahu spoke to Israeli TV stations on the occasion of the Jewish New Year holiday, which begins Friday.

    He said the U.N. report ignored Israel’s 2005 withdrawal from Gaza and the Palestinian rocket attacks that preceded Israel’s invasion, and said world leaders cannot wait for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement to affirm Israel’s right to protect itself.

    “So I am telling international leaders: You are telling us that you support our right of self defense. Don’t tell us that after the next agreement, tell us now,” Netanyahu told Channel 2 TV. “Reject the findings of this commission.”

    The report of the U.N. commission, headed by South African justice Richard Goldstone, faulted Israel for civilian deaths in Gaza. Israel charged that Gaza’s Islamic Hamas rulers were responsible for placing rocket launchers and forces in crowded neighborhoods. About 1,400 Palestinians were killed during the three-week conflict.

    The report also criticized Hamas for firing rockets at Israeli civilians.

    Netanyahu called on the world to oppose the conclusion that formal charges could be brought against Israeli soldiers, officers and leaders as a result of the Gaza war. He said it was a “blow to the fight against terrorism” and warned that other countries could find their soldiers and leaders in the dock as the result of anti-terror operations.

    Netanyahu said he would accept a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza if it were demilitarized, as a way of “avoiding the next Goldstone report” on an Israeli operation against Palestinian militants.

    Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards warned the opposition on Thursday against anti-government protests during nationwide “Qods Day” rallies on Friday, saying they would be dealt with “firmly.”

    State television said moderate cleric Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, who backed the opposition during the post-election unrest, had been replaced with a hardline cleric to lead the prayers sermon at Tehran University on Friday.

    For the past 25 years, Rafsanjani, also head of a powerful arbitrary body, had repeatedly led the sermon.

    State media have said Ahmadinejad would also address worshippers, a move which could provoke supporters of his election rivals to stage protests against the establishment.

    Rights groups say thousands of people, including senior pro-reform figures, were arrested after the election, though most have been freed. The opposition says more than 70 people died during street protests after the vote. It contradicts the official death toll of 36 people.

    Sarkozy says Iran working on Nukes
    “It is a certainty to all of our secret services. Iran is working today on a nuclear [weapons] program,” Jerusalem Post

    After Paris warned that new sanctions against Teheran remained an option despite the likelihood of negotiations with Iran, French President Nicolas Sarkozy maintained that the Islamic republic was still working on a nuclear weapons program.

    “It is a certainty to all of our secret services. Iran is working today on a nuclear [weapons] program,” Sarkozy told lawmakers from his UMP party on Tuesday, according to Press TV.

    “We cannot let Iran acquire nuclear” weapons because it would also be a threat to Israel, he added.

    An Iranian bomb would also be a threat to US and NATO troops in the region.
    French Foreign Ministry spokesman Bernard Valero had warned that Iran must make “concrete gestures” at the long-awaited discussions. He said the sanctions option remained on the table in case Teheran makes “an error of choice.”

    “It is up to Iran to restore international confidence … and show it is ready to seriously discuss its sensitive activities,” Valero said at a press briefing.

    Good luck with that. Iran has already turned down Obama’s offer of dialogue. Any dialogue regarding Iran’s nuclear ambitions will only be used to kill time by Iran.

    Then the Swine flu hit in Mexico City about May 1, 2009. I don’t live near that city but I thought “here is a possible chance to show that MMS can cure the Swine flu. So, I had my friend call the Mexican Senate and mention that MMS would probably handle the swine flu problem. At that time our friends in Mexico City, even one that worked in the main swine flu hospital had verified 2000 swine flu deaths.

    However, one top senator told us that their hands had been tied and that the Senate could do nothing and that I was advised to leave Mexico immediately as someone very powerful didn’t want anything to be done about the swine flu. The indication was that if it looked like MMS could do something, it might be unhealthy for me in Mexico. Seeing that whoever was doing the swine flu was powerful enough to tie the hands of the Mexican Senate, it was good enough to make me decide to leave immediately.

    At the airport one of my friends who was there to see me off was called by someone who said that a town nearby had quite a few cases of swine flu. They asked for help. I thought we might be able to do something so I cancelled my flight. We called a doctor in town and he said that he would accompany us to the town the next morning. He was enthusiastic about doing something with the swine flu. However the next morning he wouldn’t talk to us and his secretary told us not to bother attempting to communicate. I took that as further reason to leave, so I left that day on the airplane bound for Mexico City, and immediately on to other places away from Mexico.

    I worried about my friends there in Mexico except I knew they had loyal friends to protect them, and they are experts in the use of MMS to shield themselves against viruses of all types.

They marked her badge with a sticker to show that she had taken it. There were people who refused, but she does not know the ramifications of this yet. She did tell the staff she WILL NOT be taking the H1N1. They asked her why and she gave her reasons based on the unknowns of what this vaccine could do. They told her that they WOULD convince her to take it when it came out. She told them no you won’t and that they would have to fire her. She is extremely upset over this whole thing.

    The Associated Press reports today that “experts” at the United Nation’s International Atomic Energy Agency now “are in agreement that Tehran has the ability to make a nuclear bomb and is on the way to developing a missile system able to carry an atomic warhead, according to a secret report.”

    The document says Iran has “sufficient information” to build a bomb and says Iran is likely to “overcome problems” on developing a delivery system, according to the AP.

    In February, the IAEA reported that Iran had not converted the low-grade uranium that it has produced into weapon-grade uranium. “The Austrian Press Agency quoted an IAEA expert as saying that the uranium substances that Iran has produced at its Natanz enrichment facility have been carefully recorded and remote cameras have been installed to supervise part of the stockpile,” The Hindu reported on February 22.

    Iran has denied accusations by the United States and its allies that it has been engaged in a clandestine nuclear weapons program.

    In August, Iran indicated it would continue to co-operate with the United Nations nuclear agency, a foreign ministry spokesman told the BBC. Hassan Qashqavi said that UN inspectors were allowed access to Iran’s nearly complete nuclear reactor at Arak. “All our nuclear activities have been within the framework of the agency and the NPT (nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty)… ElBaradei has always confirmed Iran’s co-operation with the agency,” Qashqavi told reporters.

    Earlier this month, IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei condemned allegations that the agency is withholding information on Iran’s nuclear program. In “a thinly-veiled reference to recent Israeli criticism. ElBaradei was reacting to increasing Israeli pressure on the Vienna-based agency that coincides with the nearing of a September deadline set by the United States to pressure Iran into nuclear talks,” Earth Times reported on September 7. In his latest report on Iran, ElBaradei said the country had been more cooperative in letting his agency monitor the uranium enrichment plant in Natanz and a heavy water reactor under construction.

    IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei condemns “politically motivated” accusations against the agency.

    Israel accuses ElBaradei and the IAEA of “dereliction of duty” and claims he deliberately withheld incriminating information on Iran’s nuclear plans in a report published in late August.

    The IAEA document in question was apparently released by the agency today.

    In response, Iran attempted to enlist the support of developing countries at the IAEA for a proposed ban of attacks on its nuclear sites. “Tehran wanted the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to pass a resolution prohibiting armed attacks or threats of armed attacks on nuclear facilities in operation or under construction. But the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), comprised of developing countries, refused to support this proposal, leaving open the question about the support Iran could get at the general meeting,” the AFP reports today.

    On September 16, Newsweek reported that the U.S. intelligence community believes Iran has not restarted its nuclear-weapons development program. “This latest U.S. intelligence-community assessment is potentially controversial for several reasons, not the least of which is that it is at odds with more alarming assessments propounded by key U.S. allies, most notably Israel. Officials of Israel’s conservative-led government have been delivering increasingly dire assessments of Iran’s nuclear progress and have leaked shrill threats about a possible Israeli military attack on Iranian nuclear facilities,” Mark Hosenball writes.
    Israel has insisted for years that Iran is developing nuclear weapons and has threatened to attack the Islamic republic. “Israel is drawing up plans to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities and is prepared to launch a strike without backing from the US,” The Times Online reported in December, 2008. Ehud Olmert, then Israeli prime minister, reportedly asked the US for a green light to attack Iranian facilities as recently as May, 2008.

    On September 16, the globalist Bipartisan Policy Center released a report calling for “crippling sanctions” on Iran and said if sanctions fail “the White House will have to begin serious consideration of the option of a U.S.-led military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities.”

    In April of this year, Israel indicated its military is preparing to launch a massive aerial assault on Iran’s nuclear facilities within days of being given the go-ahead. “Israel wants to know that if its forces were given the green light they could strike at Iran in a matter of days, even hours. They are making preparations on every level for this eventuality. The message to Iran is that the threat is not just words,” a defense official told The Times Online.

    Russian PM Vladimir Putin has warned Israel and the United States against attacking Iran. Putin said any attack on Iran would be “very dangerous, unacceptable” and would lead to “an explosion of terrorism,” the BBC reported on September 11. “I doubt very much that such strikes would achieve their stated goal,” he added.

    Earlier this week, former UN ambassador and leading neocon John R. Bolton said sanctions against Iran will fail. He said that “whatever momentum there was for additional sanctions on Iran … has now disappeared,” Bolton said during a panel discussion Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

    In August, Bolton said a military strike against Iran will be the only way to prevent Iran from attacking Israel. He also predicted Israel would attack Iran before the end of the year (see the following Russia Today video).

    Leading neocon John Bolton makes the case for a mass murder campagin aimed at Iran.

    In 2007, Bolton said “that he saw no alternative to a pre-emptive strike on suspected nuclear facilities in the country,” according to the Jerusalem Post. In addition, he called for the assassination of Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    Increasingly, it appears Israel, the United States, or both countries will attack Iran. It is significant that the IAEA has now changed course and believes Iran is working on a nuclear weapon and a delivery system. Such developments make an attack more likely and probably before the end of the year as Bolton has predicted.

My niece lived there for a couple years and the Polish people have no trust in anything a Russian says. And their mistrust has been justified on all levels. Obama better be getting good advice because he gave up a big win to the Ruskies today. He could have a major problem coming down on his head soon. And as usual, we the people will be the victims if it does.

    Things just keeping getting worse for Queen Birther Orly Taitz. Yesterday, a federal judge not only threw out her latest “birther soldier” lawsuit, but also took the time to demolish Birtherism generally and threaten Taitz with sanctions if she files more frivolous suits.

    Now, in response to Taitz’s comments to TPM calling the judge corrupt and suggesting he should be tried for treason, a fellow member of the California bar has filed a formal complaint against Taitz.

    “I respectfully request that you investigate Ms. Taitz’s conduct and impose an appropriate sanction. She is an embarrassment to the profession,” writes Subodh Chandra, who practices in Ohio and is also an inactive member of the California bar.

    Read Chandra’s full complaint right here. Chandra was a Democratic candidate for Attorney General of Ohio in 2006 and a delegate to the Democratic National Convention last year.

    Connecting the Insidious Obama and ACORN Nexus
    By Larry Johnson

    Barack Obama’s ties to ACORN (see Memeorandum) are not incidental nor are they casual. Bill O’Reilly displayed his fundamental ignorance on the matter last night when he pooh-poohed the notion of an Obama tie simply because “ACORN previously worked” for his campaign. O’Reilly acted like this was ancient history. Sorry Bill, but you do not know what the hell you are talking about. The latest saga of ACORN as an enabler of child prostitution, illegal immigration and tax fraud is not new.

    The money given to ACORN through one of its front companies–CSI–was not a simple clerical error. The Obama Presidential campaign deliberately tried to hide its relationship to ACORN and funneling almost $1 million dollars to ACORN by using a group with no experience doing the task that it was ostensibly hired to do. The story is pretty simple–it is about Citizen Services Inc., a Nigerian director of CSI living in Minnesota and false campaign financing report.

    I first wrote this story last August (see here). We passed this information first to David Brown, a reporter in Pittsburgh, who broke the story publicly in early August. So far the mainstream press has failed to investigate this matter. Here are the key details.
    The Obama team gave Citizen Services Inc. more than $800,000 ostensibly for “staging and lighting.” We reported (our own intrepid Eastan MacNeal) the following:

    According to Federal Election Commission (FEC) financial disclosure reports filed by the campaign earlier this year, between February 25th and May 17th Obama paid $832,598 to Citizens Services, Inc. (CSI), one of the nearly seventy Not-for-Profit companies registered at the ACORN New Orleans headquarters on 1024 Elysian Fields Avenue [SEE IMAGE OF THE NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS of CSI as well as 20 other businesses.]. CSI now also shares an office with ACORN in Chicago at 209 W. Jackson St., home of the SEIU (Service Employees International Union). . . . According to the director (of CSI), and as found in various disclosure reports from other candidates, CSI specializes in field operations, specifically grass roots organizing for get out the vote efforts. The Obama expense reports list the following payments to CSI: $564,342 for Stage, Sound, Lighting, $138,000 for Advance Work, $18,417 for Polling and $98,451 for Travel/Lodging.

    Only one itty, bitty problem. CSI had no track record of performing such services. When the Obama team was confronted with this uncomfortable fact they quickly pivoted and claimed, “Oh, we made a labeling mistake, it was just to get out the vote.” And the media and most of the public swallowed that horseshit without pause.

    But that was a lie. How do I know? Because I tracked down one of the Directors of CSI, one Mr. Sunday Oladimeji Alabi. According to one of the documents filed with the State of Louisiana the Directors in 2006 were:

    Filing 3
    Filed Date: 06/01/2006
    Filing Number: 36196988
    Comments: ANNUAL REPORT (06)

    Officers – As Of – 04/20/2007
    Name: ALIBI, SUNDAY
    DIRECTOR

    Name: LEON, ROSALIE
    DIRECTOR
    Contact Type: OFFICER
    Address: 3990 DELTA ST
    SAN DIEGO, CA 92113-4206

    I searched the internet and found Mr. Alabi’s phone number. Mr. Alabi answered the phone and I introduced myself using my real name. But I did tell a white lie–I said I got his name and number from Bob Shrum at the Democratic National Committee. He hesitated. When I repeated that I got his name and number from the DNC he brightened up and became quite chatty. Using the Obama FEC filing as my guide I told Mr. Alabi that I needed to hire Citizen Services to help my campaign with “Staging, Sound, and Lighting.” Without a moments hesitation Mr. Alabi told me, “we don’t do that.” He went on to identify ACORN as the organization that handles those matters and he told me to contact Marc Seiden (he gave me a cell phone number for Mr. Seiden, which is a District of Columbia cell phone). Are there any legit journalists interested in Mr. Seiden’s phone number? It is still working as I write this.

    Note that Mr. Alabi did not take time to correct me and tell me that he and his group only did “get out the vote” work. He directed me to a person he says is affiliated with the ACORN office in Washington. So who is Eric Seiden? What was his role with the Obama campaign? Who did he talk to in order to ensure the “get out the vote” effort was effective.

    Why did the Obama team select CSI/ACORN for a critical role in getting out the vote? Who on the Obama team recommended that CSI/ACORN had the requisite expertise? Let’s remember that Obama was in a longshot position of winning the election when they turned to CSI and sent them almost $1 million dollars. Given that Barack Obama and David Axelrod are so damn intelligent (Did you know that Barack is the smartest person ever to be President? I heard that on the radio.) are we to believe that they just made a blind choice completely devoid of any research or back up testimonial? I don’t think so.

    If you want to understand why ACORN offices across the country are able to give crafty advice on avoiding taxes, fooling the police and setting up child prostitution businesses then you must first understand why the campaign of Barack Obama gave almost $1 million to an organization with no track record in doing the electioneering work they were hired to do.

    Anyone out there willing to go get these answers?

    We Can’t Even Trim $1.4 Million From Our Budgetby Anthony Randazzo

    Riding the wave of the GOP’s successful push to have Congress defund Acorn, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) tried to push through another prudential budget matter: killing the John Murtha-Johnstown Cambria County Airport. His effort was not as successful.

    On Thursday afternoon, the GOP brought a measure to the Senate floor to end federal subsidies for the airport Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) had built in Johnstown, PA, right in his home district. Over the past few years, the airport has received roughly $150 million in funds from the defense budget, and it got $800,000 in stimulus money.

    But it just so happens the airport only sees about 6,700 passengers… a year. Luckily, Murtha is the chairman of that wonderful little defense committee, dutifully guiding money towards the airport build largely so he could get from Dulles back to his home easier.

    Tyler Grimm wrote in The Wall Street Journal earlier this month:

    The usually barren airport—there were several times during the day I paced the building for 15 minutes and did not see another human being—has a lot of unused advertising space. But you can’t miss the large picture of John Murtha among a collage of Lockheed Martin workers at the airport’s center. It’s a monument to earmarks: “Partnerships Make a World of Difference,” the ad reads.

    The Senate voted mostly down party lines to keep the $1.4 million in annual spending on the airport in the budget. Yes, we spend that much money to operate to fund an airport that is losing money and seeing maybe 20 people pass through a day.

    Now, it’s true that the deficit is a behemoth in the trillions, but every little $1.4 million helps. Keeping this obvious, greasy piece of pork is a travesty worthy of a loud grunt of frustration and a snifter of brandy. As Sen. DeMint exclaimed, “If we can’t stop it, we can’t stop anything.”

    A new era of fiscal responsibility indeed.

    Next TEA parties? Nov. 1, 2009 at every liberal media national HQ it’s Stamp Act anniversary day
    September 18, 2009, 7:07 am
    By Kevin “Coach” Collins

    The explosive power of 2,200,000 American patriots converging on Washington can’t be wasted.
    So “What’s next, where and when?”
    Targeting the media
    We know the Left owns the media. They lied by about our numbers to tamp down the fires of liberty and help their masters. They never mentioned the hundreds of local TEA parties in 45 states from Maine to Hawaii. Media lies about our TEA parties and their size are a danger to American freedom and liberty. We have to confront the media and keep up the pressure.
    Here’s our next step and when
    Since the media “didn’t notice” 2.2 million people gathering in Washington we should do what Rush suggested and gather at their headquarters across the country.
    November 1 seems to be an ideal date. It’s the anniversary of the British Parliament’s passing the Stamp Act in 1765. That led to the first tax revolt in American history which was a huge success. In one year England had to repeal it.

    With the flames of protest in our streets still burning brightly we can easily get huge crowds out to show the media we’re tired of their slanted anti American reporting.

    With CNN in Atlanta, the AP in Washington and NBC in New York City the distribution of logistics and planning are perfect for another successful day.

    In New York City gathering in front of NBC headquarters at Rockefeller Center on a crisp Sunday afternoon would be an easy goal. Rockefeller Center is in the heart of Manhattan where the liberals live and work. Transportation to Rockefeller Center is easy from anywhere in a metropolitan area including 17 million people.

    Atlanta is an accessible hub city and of course Washington is as well.

    This works people. Contact your local TEA party organizers and “Let’s roll!”

    Keeping the momentum up

    We’ve made our point to the liberals in Congress. They saw first hand up close and personally that we will not stand for their continued assaults on our freedom and liberty.
    Now we have to make the point to their puppets in the media. We have to let them know their conduct is unacceptable and clearly the reason why the number of people who trust them is at a record low. We have to force them to live up to the responsibilities and freedoms won for us and them by our first Revolution and they had better get on board for our second Revolution.

    We can’t let this flame go out. We have the wind at our backs and have the Left on the run. We have them down and can’t allow them to get back up.

    While ACORN remains riddled in scandal, lawmakers have voted to cut off federal funding to the group, the U.S. Census Bureau has severed ties to the organization – and the White House has blasted its behavior as “unnacceptable.”

    But just how extensive are President Obama’s personal ties to ACORN?

    The following is a timeline outlining some of the purported connections between the president and ACORN through the years:

    THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY WERE DOING.

    I do not know if Micheletti actually believes that crp, or if he was walking a fine line to communicate to the people of the US without pissing off the administration.

    Under fire, Democrats abandon ACORN in droves
    By: Byron York
    Chief Political Correspondent
    September 18, 2009
    (AP File)
    Back in February, during the Democrats’ frenzied rush to pass the $787 billion economic stimulus bill, Republican Sen. David Vitter offered a simple, 28-word amendment: “None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act may be used directly or indirectly to fund the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.” Vitter’s amendment was shot down, 51-45, with all the votes coming from the Democratic majority.

    At about the same time, GOP lawmakers introduced similar measures in the House. Those, too, were defeated by Democratic majorities.

    Fast-forward to Monday, Sept. 14. A Housing Department appropriations bill was moving through the Senate, and Republican Sen. Mike Johanns offered an amendment that was nearly word-for-word identical to the one Vitter introduced back in February, barring all federal housing funds for ACORN. This time, the ACORN-defunding amendment passed, 83-7. The winning total included 50 — yes, 50 — Democrats. Liberals like Chris Dodd, Dianne Feinstein, Carl Levin, Charles Schumer and others who supported ACORN back in February all changed their votes to approve the cutoff of funds.

    That was just a preview of what would happen on Thursday, across the Capitol in the House of Representatives. Just 48 hours after Republican Leader John Boehner introduced the “Defund ACORN Act,” which would ban all federal funds for the group, the House Democratic leadership agreed to a vote on the bill. Boehner’s measure passed 345-to-75, with 172 Democrats voting to cut off funds for an organization that had long worked on behalf of Democrats nationwide.

    It was an absolutely mind-blowing turn of events, a total collapse of longtime Democratic support for ACORN. Republicans had worked for years to reduce ACORN’s influence, with little success. Now, in the span of a few days, the GOP scored major victories.

    Everybody knows why. None of this would have happened had it not been for undercover videos, released on the new Web site BigGovernment, which caught ACORN employees in Baltimore, Washington, New York City and California in the act of encouraging tax fraud and prostitution, including prostitution involving underage girls. The videos, which were ignored by most big media organizations other than Fox News, had a huge effect on Capitol Hill.

    “I was stunned by what I saw,” says Johanns, who has had his eye on ACORN since joining the Senate in January. “I just could not believe that you could have a situation where people were so complacent, so complicit, in what was clearly activity that was not only illegal but just unbelievably wrong.”

    The BigGovernment videos came in the wake of news that arrest warrants had been issued for 11 former ACORN workers in Florida accused of forging hundreds of voter registration applications. In light of those revelations, lawmakers who once felt confident voting on ACORN’s behalf were forced to reconsider; a vote for ACORN was no longer safe. In literally hours, years of Democratic sponsorship of ACORN virtually disappeared.

    There are still many steps ahead. Johanns and others have introduced a new bill, the “Protect Taxpayers from ACORN Act,” which would do the same thing as the total-defunding bill in the House. If it passes, there will be a conference committee to reach agreement on a final version of the bill, which will then have to pass the House and Senate before winning President Obama’s signature. At any point along the way, Democrats might reverse themselves and again take up ACORN’s cause.

    Then there is what Republicans see as Part Two of the process. For the GOP, the goal is not just to cut off ACORN’s federal money. It’s to get to the bottom of all the allegations of corruption at ACORN and affiliated organizations around the country. On Tuesday, Johanns sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder urging a Justice Department investigation into the full range of ACORN allegations. Rep. Lamar Smith in the House made a similar request. No word yet on what Holder will decide.

    There’s no way to know how it will end. But it’s now a fact that there are on-the-record votes of large majorities of Democrats favoring the total cutoff of federal funds for ACORN — a virtually unheard-of possibility just one week ago. What a difference a video can make.

    In 1990, on a trip to Denali National Park in Alaska, Caribou Coffee was imagined by newlyweds John and Kim Puckett. The couple raised money to start the first Caribou Coffee shop in Edina, Minnesota… the Pucketts sold their controlling interest in the company in 1998 for $120 million to Atlanta-based Crescent Capital, which has since changed its name to Arcapita. Caribou maintains its headquarters and coffee-roasting facility in the Minneapolis metropolitan area.

    The First Islamic Investment Bank of Bahrain has a large financial stake in Arcapita, Caribou Coffee’s majority shareholder. In 2002 Yusuf al-Qaradawi’s involvement[6] with the bank led to a protest of Caribou Coffee. That same year al-Qaradawi stepped down as chairman of the bank’s Sharia board.

    Troy is anybody going after the connection of Obama and Acorn in the media? Beck touched on it briefly. O’Reilly scoffed at it. What about Hannitty or Rush? Haven’t heard much of anything from them re Obama/Acorn. All the media seems to have finally begun reporting Acorn story, but will the biggest connection be made and investigated? Doubtful, but we can hope. According to Beck and others, Acorn is just one tentacle of many and will morph into other organizations. Keep aware everyone and spread the words of truth to those who don’t listen to the facts.

    Health Policy Experts Urge Congress To Abandon Ideological Differences On Overhaul

    http://www.kaiserhealthnews.org/Stories/2009/September/17/open-letter-experts.aspx

    Many of the panelists, who were involved in past failed health reform efforts, warned that the financial security of the middle class is in danger if Congress does not act.

    Princeton economist Uwe Reinhardt, who was among the co-signers, noted in a statement that a typical privately insured American family now pays $16,700 for health care, which will double again by 2019 while wages and salaries rise at less than 3 percent per year. “Many middle-class Americans seem unaware that they are sailing into a perfect storm,” he said.

    (I get this, I really do. My main concern now is that Congress will provide employers with an incentive to drop coverage. And then those who won’t qualify for subsidies will have to pay the entire cost instead of employers paying their share.)

    Iranian president raises stakes against Israel

    The hardline president warned leaders of Western-allied Arab and Muslim countries about dealing with Israel.

    “This regime (Israel) will not last long. Do not tie your fate to it … This regime has no future. Its life has come to an end,” he said in a speech broadcast live on state radio.

    Britain was swift in condemning Ahmadinejad’s remarks, calling them “abhorrent as well as ignorant.”

    “It is very important that the world community stands up against this tide of abuse. This outburst is not worthy of the leader of Iran,” Foreign Secretary David Miliband said.

    TURMOIL AT HOME

    At home, Ahmadinejad is facing strong opposition which erupted into unrest following his disputed re-election in June.

    On Friday, Iranian security forces clashed with supporters of opposition leader Mirhossein Mousavi and arrested at least 10 of them during annual anti-Israel rallies in Tehran.

    Thousands of supporters of Mousavi, wearing green wristbands or shawls, were among crowds marching in the “Qods Day” rallies.

    Baucus Bill: Employer Mandate in Sheep’s Clothing

    http://blog.kiplinger.com/politics/2009/09/baucus-healtlh-insurance-fee-a.html

    Under Baucus’s plan, if you own a company with more than 50 full-time employees and you don’t have employee health coverage, you will have to pay part of the government’s cost to help those uninsured folks in your company afford an insurance policy.

    Sound reasonable?

    Under Baucus’ bill, companies with more than 50 full-time workers — regardless of the size of their payroll — would be charged a fee for each worker who receives federal tax credits to purchase his or her own insurance.

    Workers would be eligible for the credit if their income was below a certain amount and if their employer didn’t offer coverage that they could afford.

    The fee would be based on the average cost of insurance sold through state-run exchanges set up under the bill.

    The levy could be as much as $400 per worker, so that 75-worker firm in the earlier example would have to pay up to $30,000 if every employee got the tax credit.

    Baucus would charge a fee only for each individual worker who claimed the tax credit.

    So it’s possible you could have an uninsured workforce at a company where some employees were more tax-savvy than others.

    Or a business might have a highly paid workforce where no one would qualify for the affordability credit.
    So there’s no explicit mandate.

    But the implied message is still the same:

    Insure your workers who would have trouble paying the full cost of health insurance or pay the government to pick up the slack.

    (So pay the government a lousy $400 instead of $10,000? Where’s the incentive for employers who currently provide coverage to continue to do that? I still don’t get it.)

    Understanding Key Parts of the Massachusetts Health Plan

    http://www.heritage.org/Research/HealthCAre/wm1045.cfm

    • The new employer “mandate”: The Governor’s original proposal did not include an employer mandate. The legislature, however, decided to add requirements for employers to its final legislation. For years, employers in Massachusetts that purchased coverage for their employees have had to pay a health insurance premium tax to the state’s uncompensated care pool. This tax applied only to employers paying for insurance—not to employers that didn’t provide coverage, despite that many of their employees benefited from the uncompensated care pool. Ideally, the plan should have repealed the existing premium tax.[1] Instead, the legislature inserted a provision that will require companies that do not make any provision for insurance to pay a levy—set at a maximum of $295 per employee per year—into the state’s uncompensated care pool.

    The Governor vetoed this provision under his line-item veto authority, but the legislature will likely vote to reinstate it. Still, this requirement, though objectionable, actually is quite limited. This new fee can easily be avoided: firms subject to it need only offer their employees a Section 125 Cafeteria Plan and give them the opportunity to buy coverage through the new health insurance Connector on a pre-tax basis to escape the levy at little expense. Further, the actual assessment is likely to be less than the statutory maximum of $295 because the other legislative provisions in the plan are designed to reduce the demand on the uncompensated care pool.

    Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio alleged Thursday that a national community activist organization is using federal and state funds to fight his efforts to enforce immigration law.

    Arpaio sent subpoenas to the local chapter and national headquarters of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, asking for a wide array of records he says will connect the organization to a racial profiling lawsuit he is challenging in federal court.

    That lawsuit was filed by the immigrant advocacy group Somos America and five Latinos, all of whom are U.S. citizens or are in the country legally, according to the suit.

    They allege that Arpaio’s deputies singled them out because of their skin color and that the agency has a policy, pattern and practice of racially profiling Latinos, especially during “crime suppression sweeps.”

    ACORN has been under fire recently after secret video revealed employees advising a pair posing as a pimp and prostitute to break tax laws and open a brothel for underaged girls.

    The left-leaning group is also under scrutiny for several voter-fraud cases.

    ACORN’s local office did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

    5. Will employers stop providing health care coverage if a public plan is available?

    There is no plan in Congress to prevent this. The Congressional Budget Office found that if one Democratic plan in the Senate becomes law, “about 6 million people who would have employment-based coverage under current law would not have such coverage under the proposal.”

    (“if a public plan is available” – Would the same hold true if a coop is available?)

    Maybe They Meant They’re Not in Bed Together

    I’m sure we’ll be told there’s absolutely no reason to worry or feel concern upon hearing that local Democratic parties are sharing offices with ACORN:

    ACORN workers in King County were convicted of committing voter fraud in 2006. Similar accusations were made during last year’s presidential election, when ACORN volunteers registered an estimated 1.3 million voters. Eleven ACORN employees in Miami were arrested last week and charged with voter registration fraud.

    No such accusations have been made against the local ACORN office, which has been in Snohomish County since 2007, where they share an office with the county’s Democratic Party and the Snohomish County Labor Council.

    But remember, ACORN is a non-partisan organization.

    UPDATE: I’m sure it’s completely coincidental that Rep. Rick Larsen, whose district includes a large part of Sonohomish County, voted to keep federal tax dollars to ACORN despite their offers of assistance to underage prostitution rings.

    Obama: Legalize illegals to get them health care
    by DefendUSx September 18, 2009 12:50

    Republicans see a backdoor move toward ‘amnesty’

    Stephen Dinan
    Washington Times
    Friday, September 18, 2009

    Obama said this week that his health care plan won’t cover illegal immigrants, but argued that’s all the more reason to legalize them and ensure they eventually do get coverage.

    He also staked out a position that anyone in the country legally should be covered – a major break with the 1996 welfare reform bill, which limited most federal public assistance programs only to citizens and longtime immigrants.

    “Even though I do not believe we can extend coverage to those who are here illegally, I also don’t simply believe we can simply ignore the fact that our immigration system is broken,” Mr. Obama said Wednesday evening in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. “That’s why I strongly support making sure folks who are here legally have access to affordable, quality health insurance under this plan, just like everybody else.

    Mr. Obama added, “If anything, this debate underscores the necessity of passing comprehensive immigration reform and resolving the issue of 12 million undocumented people living and working in this country once and for all.”

    Republicans said that amounts to an amnesty, calling it a backdoor effort to make sure current illegal immigrants get health care.

    Towards Rational Health Care Reform

    http://race42008.com/2009/09/16/towards-rational-health-care-reform/

    Take BaucusCare, remove the co-ops, add incentives for new insurance companies to enter the market, and add in tort reform, and you basically have a solid package that would solve the majority of our current health care financing problems at a very low price tag to the state, and one that doesn’t threaten the quality of our health care or get the state involved in medical decision-making.

    But aside from the Grassleys and Enzis, who would support such legislation and probably will if Mitt Romney is president four years from now, there are two groups that refuse to support the proposal that I’ve outlined.

    The first group is the Tea Party/Glenn Beck Right, which sees any health care legislation as a liberty v. tyranny issue.

    The second group is the Left, which, to paraphrase Newt Gingrich and Tim Pawlenty, is bound and determined to enact a 1970s solution to health care in the 21st Century.

    Both groups are wrong.

    What the Tea Partiers need to realize is that government regulation of health care is not like, say, government regulation of the Internet.

    Health care reform doesn’t mean government begins regulating what is currently a wonderful free-market mess.

    The health care industry is already an extremely highly regulated industry.

    It’s just regulated in a way that makes sense for the world of thirty years ago.

    What reformers want to do is change the way the government regulates the health care industry, so that instead of being regulated in a dumb way, it’s regulated in a smart way.

    That’s not liberty and tyranny.

    That just makes sense.

    Inside the Twisted Mind of a Government Tax Planner

    http://atr.org/inside-twisted-mind-government-tax-planner-a3882

    The tax planners have attempted to “fix the market’s behavior, and then fix the perverse consequences of their original intervention.

    Inevitably a new perverse consequence is created.

    All of this for what?

    Wages are determined by productivity – this measure only strong-arms employers into offering compensation in a less liquid form than cash.

    However undesirable the other health care goals of central planners may be, none of them require an employee mandate.

    Planners could just as easily force citizens to buy health care with an individual mandate – then consumers would have at least the option of directly picking their preferred level of insurance.

    Community rating, guaranteed issue, pre-existing coverage, and deductible caps do not rely in any important sense on an employer mandate.

    Only Baucus’s arbitrary desire that employer insurance dominate the market is satisfied by this harmful web of byzantine regulations.

    Employers, workers, and taxpayers, as usual, are left with the bill.

  144. rosettasister Says:

    “Baucus’s arbitrary desire that employer insurance dominate the market”

    Question for Rose.

    You wrote that you used to live down here where I do (chandler) and you had a different kind of scorpion up Peoria way than down here in Chandler.

    I’ve only seen the little bark scorpions in my neighborhood, but my parents live in 85283 (south tempe) and they mostly get those huge 3-4 inch buggers. That zip happens to be the most reported bite (poison control data) zip code. My parents have had a few of the barks.

    What kind do you get up Peoria way?

    I (knock on wood) have never been bitten by one and I’ve lived in Tempe/chandler my entire life. I don’t remember seeing any as a kid in North Tempe. I guess that people/scorpion habitats hadn’t clashed that much yet. We used to gets tons of frogs after it rained. Big toad/frogs and then lots of tadpoles and snails. Liked it as a kid, but the thought grosses me out now. 🙂

    After a story appeared of a “big cat” sighting at the Gilbert Riparian Preserve, (and outdoor kitties disappearing), I thought that I’d take a hike around in the early a.m.

    I saw a rather large group gathering and peering through binocs and discussing the “snout” of this mountain lion/bob cat.

    It looked like a normal tabby to me, so I walked around the other side of the preserve and followed it. I decided to call it using the phrase that all domestic cats stop and listen to. I said, “here kitty kitty kitty”. The cat turned around and sat. Listening to me and watching.

    What the group was watching across the pond was a regular orange tabby, albeit a healthy, big one. Lots of birds in the park to eat. As I continued walking around the back of the preserve, there was another orange tabby sunning himself on the top of a transformer box.

    Just thought that was kind of funny.

    What kind do you get up Peoria way?

    ***

    Funny you should ask, igaveup, I just had to kill another one this morning. My husband opened the front door, it must have been on the door on the outside and dropped down onto the tile.

    In Chandler, both my husband and son were stung and it’s very painful.

    The closest I’ve come to getting stung happened just a week or so ago. Again, I had gone outside through our bedroom door and one must have climbed onto or fallen onto my dress.

    I had this thread hanging off the bottom of my dress which I hadn’t bothered to cut off. So when I felt something on my leg, I thought it was just the thread. Then I felt something fall onto my bare foot.

    Thankfully, it climbed right down to the tile floor.

    I thanked the scorpion for not stinging me, then I smooshed it!

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like to kill anything even when it’s necessary.

    This is our 3rd summer here, and we never saw a scorpion until this summer.

    Next spring we’ll definitely have an exterminator come out.

    The scorpions in Chandler were like the type you describe, they were smaller and whitish and had a really hard exoskeleton, not so easy to smoosh.

    The ones up here (we’re about 8 miles NW of Lake Pleasant and Happy Valley, just to the south of the Lake) are longer and pinkish-orangeish and easier to smoosh.

    And also slower I think.

    I’m glad I had the opportunity to tell that story.

    (2) when i was still living in my old house (after i had to get an order of protection against my ex husband) and i was taking out his clothes to put into a garbage bag and put them on the sidewalk, i started taking out his socks from the drawer and underneath was a dead bark scorpion. i just decided to leave it there as my parting gift. 😉

    September 18, 2009
    To the Honorable Judge Land:

    Currently, I am shipping out to Iraq for my deployment. I became aware on last night’s local news that a Motion to Stay my deployment had been entered on my behalf. I did not authorize this motion to be filed. I thank you for hearing my case and respect the ruling given on September 16, 2009. It is evident that the original filing for the TRO and such was full of political conjecture which was not my interest. I had no intention of refusing orders nor will I. I simply wanted to verify the lawfulness of my orders. I am honored to serve my country and thank you for doing the same.

    With that said please withdraw the Motion to Stay filed by Ms. Taitz this past Thursday. I did not authorize it and do not wish to proceed. Ms. Taitz never requested my permission nor did I give it. I would not have been aware of this if I did not see it on the late news on Thursday night before going to board my plane to Iraq on Friday, September 18, 2009.

    Furthermore, I do not wish for Ms. Taitz to file any future motions or represent me in any way in this court. It is my plan to file a complaint with the California State Bar due to her reprehensible and unprofessional actions.

    I am faxing this as was advised by Tim, who works in the District Clerk’s office. I will mail the original copy of this letter once I have arrive in Iraq.

    i would think, that somewhere, some lawyer has contacted her offering to help (in an invisible sort of way, like reading her briefs?) or even a paralegal? (i have training in that) but since her briefs have a habit of being rejected for mistakes, i don’t think she has any help and i wonder if her mistakes are as bad and foundational as they appear, how did she pass the bar?

    – HR-3458 (short & sweet House Bill – this is the Trojan Horse)

    – Lawful Content (this is the tool, the poison pill, like “local content” – vague and undefined “they” get to define what is illegal. You wouldn’t be for unlawful content, now would you?)

    – FreePress (It’s not. A front organization with the integrity of ACORN)

    – Google and Edge Caching – (complicated, but it may be the dominant control point Google reaps from getting in bed with Obama – effectively evolves into Google controlling all significant Internet access points)

    From what I understand of the school that offers the online degree (i had checked it out myself after doing the paralegal stuff), California is the only state that you can attend this school, take the BAR in Cali, and if you pass go straight to work.

    In AZ. they don’t except online school and if I had taken this path, I would have had to practice in Calif for three years before I could take the BAR in AZ.

    However, from my experience working the legal field and going through family court, there are quite a few “practicing” lawyers that passed the AZ BAR, and I wondered how the heck they were still practicing.

    For all of you out there who will have kids going to college. This is from a newsletter I received from my Senator Richard Burr.

    Also, the House took up legislation this week addressing the Obama Administration’s proposal calling for a complete and immediate federal takeover of student loans by eliminating the successful Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFEL). This means that students and parents will soon only have one option when it comes to getting a loan to go to college: the federal government. The Senate will be asked to take up this legislation in the coming weeks.

    Up to now, students, parents, and schools have benefitted from having a broad choice of lenders for student loans. Competition among private lenders allows for students to seek out and get the best terms and service on their loans. I am opposed to creating a federal monopoly on student loans because it will lead to reduced customer service, more bureaucratic red tape, and no choices as private lenders are squeezed out of the market. It also means American taxpayers will be responsible for putting up $100 billion each year to cover student loans. This takeover will only hurt our students and their families as they pursue a higher education, and I will continue my efforts to prevent such a takeover.

    I am glad he is on top of this. I think however he is pulling punches with the “fair market” theme…….

    Media Matters: Police Report Filed From ACORN Office
    Apparently Media Matters, a George Soros arm, have a police report filed by a ACORN employee in Pennsylvania after the pimp and the prostitute visited their office in July of this year.

    The employee apparently turned them in to the police. One thing wrong with this picture is the pimp, was named as James O’Keefe. Didn’t James and Hannah go into the ACORN offices with fake names?

    Troy,
    Kitties will usually accept petting if it comes while they are eating wet cat food…..then they learn to associate petting with the pleasure of eating.

    Also,
    I am guilty of making comments about Taitz over at CW’s. I reminded them of the story of someone visiting Russia and being told about a black man, a Communist, being prepared to take over the presidency of the US.
    I made the point Taitz is from Russia, always seemed to screw up her cases, thus establishing precedent for other cases to be denied. At the end I pointed out that we don’t really know anything about anyone we only know through the internet, except what they want us to know. (Her bio is up at WND, via an interview with her…how much of that info did WND actually vet?) Needless to say some never bothered to read to the end of my comment, and went off. My only point was, by its very nature, the players in a successful conspiracy will never be known. I was using Taitz as an example because there are some very ardent Taitz supporters at CW’s.

  234. Bones Says:

    Darn, looks like I missed the kitty discussion. 😦

    igaveup, I remember reading about a nasal spray flu vaccine option, but I don’t remember where. And on another post here, someone mentioned Medimmune, the company that has a patent on… as I understood the claim… H1N1 itself… they seem to produce a nasal spray vaccine for regular flu (FluMist), not sure if they are involved in the nasal spray option for H1N1.

    jrinnc, those proposed documents for quarantine from Iowa are pretty frightening. So this is the type of thing that’s “floating” right now and could potentially receive a stamp of approval? I keep not wanting to believe what I am seeing… on so many fronts… by the same token, it’s so hard to know what to believe.

    Orly… gosh… here’s my take on Orly… just what my gut tells me, so have your salt handy. She is so afraid of the possibility of our government turning the country into a police state, and she makes an assumption, whether true or not, that we are already at least part-way down that path. In a police state, the truth doesn’t matter. You do what you have to to survive. You don’t trust the system. You manipulate wherever and whenever you can because you know that’s what it will take. That frame of reference could lead to some serious breaches, such as potentially asking someone to lie under oath. It’s not clear that she did that, but what seems true is that she’s working within the system only to the extent that she must in order to get Obama exposed and taken down, which would be a major step towards dismantling the police-state. Others working with her could see her tactics as unethical, whereas to her, she’s fighting the only possible fight that has a chance of winning wrt preserving her and our freedom. Based on all of the above, my feeling towards Orly is more one of respect than anything. But I’m not convinced of any of this… just aware that my opinion seems to settle here.

    What bugs me more than anything is how much we have to speculate about *everything* that is going on in this country right now. The media isn’t going to tell us. Something’s clearly fishy (and it ain’t us). We have to research everything, and when we do we sense that evidence has been scrubbed and people are lying. The information that we have access to is therefore suspect. Fear-mongering, distractions, even strange deaths abound… this isn’t our country anymore! They’ve made the switch right under our noses.

    I often find comfort and wisdom in the words of Harry Browne. “How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World” is a very good read. Here is a nice summary:

    http://www.buildfreedom.com/tl/ffp05.shtml

    Pay attention in particular to the section on group traps.

    But most of all, it’s really upsetting to me that I missed the kitty discussion. Maybe next time…

  235. Bones Says:

    By the way, I think we should start a web site called truthcheck.org. Because it has the word truth in it, and is a .org and not a .com (makes it trustworthy), sheeple will soon realize that everything on it must be true.

  236. ryansgrammy Says:

I thought you were strictly a doggie lady??? 🙂 Thanks for your insight on Orly and the book summary.

    *********************************************************
    Yes they are poisonous – while they can kill a person if medical attention is NOT sought, you can recover from a bite – VERY PAINFUL. But more than likely adults that die from the bite usually have other health issues. They can kill a small dog or small child within a few hours. We have rattlesnakes here too – and I mean BIG ones. My Uncle just reminded me yesterday to watch for them as this is the time of year when they too are running and he told me they are blind right now and therefore at their most dangerous time. Don’t know if that is true as I have not looked it up. But I can tell you I walk with my eyes glued to the ground, searching and scanning.

    Hey JB!

    Glad you popped in.

    If you need any smoothie recipes, I’m at your service. Low fat or high calorie.

    You probably need to pack as many calories in small servings as possible. Might want to get the nurse to blend something up w/ peanut butter, banana, protein and yogurt. Use crushed ice. It’s a lot easier on your blender, takes less thinning, so you get a thicker smoothie. Should be able to add a multivitamin in there too w/o making it taste medicine-ie.

    You can also get natural peanut butter that contains the peanut oil instead of other additives. That’s a healthier fat.

    Thanks for the tips and offer of recipes. I do ascribe to most of them. BTW, my “male nurse” is my hubby. 🙂 He just cancelled his business trip for this week, it will be interesting to see if he cancels next weeks as well…….As Every pill must be crushed, watered down then put into a syringe, as well as liquid pain killer and soup. I am able to use a straw now. Yippe
    I get escorted everywhere…….when I protest, I quickly get reminded of what that was like to see me lying there, face down. Non responsive.
    So, this is my challenge. I have accepted it. But it ain’t easy.
    .We had such great conversations in the car on the way home, made big plans, met some very dyamic people (especially at the rest stops.Kept meeting up with the same people which of course I took as a sign and got phone numbers and e-mails, etc We had mini tea parties in the parking lots! very cool) and if Saving America while repairing my broken jaw is part of that plan, so be it.
