Rahm Emanuel, President Obama’s Chief of Staff, said “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” I would have to say that President Obama, Democrats, and now one Rhino are certainly making sure they slip in every dirty little thing possible during the economic down turn of America. Way to take advantage of that crisis! The Democrats are now chomping at the bit to pass their health tax, er I mean, care reform bill as a bipartisan legislation now that as of today Rhino Republican, Sen. Olympia Snowe, said that she will vote for the legislation. This will make her the one and only Republican to support the Democrat’s proposal. Not really surprising as she only voted conservative 12% of the time in 2008.

This health care bill is just as much a load of filth as the other democrat propositions. It is, of course, government controlled, but the best part is that we will get to start paying for it as soon as President Obama signs even though it would not be fully implemented until the year 2013. This is cleverly disguised as a huge tax on private insurance companies. And it doesn’t require guineas to know this would make health insurance prices sky rocket even further, so in essence it is a hidden tax on everyone. The bill would also require those who are currently uninsured to purchase insurance.

On Fox News it was reported that, “The accounting firm study projects the legislation would add $1,700 a year to the cost of family coverage in 2013, when most of the major provisions in the bill would be in effect.” And also, “Premiums for a single person would go up by $600 more than would be the case without the legislation, the PricewaterhouseCoopers analysis concluded in the study commissioned by the insurance group.” Unfortunately, what those just starting out have to look forward to according to this study reported by Fox News is, “The study projected that in 2019, family premiums could be $4,000 higher and individual premiums could be $1,500 higher.”

In the long run, by 2013 it will be so costly to have private insurance with this bill that those who are not among the wealthy would be forced to go with the government insurance. And for the people who can not pay for their government insurance, this will be a heavy burden on the country’s finances.  As stated on NewsMax.com,

“Expanding coverage to the uninsured is likely to lead to more health care spending, Elmendorf said. But other provisions, such as a tax on high-premium health care plans, could push spending down. “We simply have not done the analysis to net that out,” he said.”

With talk of a second “stimulus package”, the weakening of the dollar as a world currency,  and the irresponsibile aspirations of government health care, you can almost guarantee the deeper economic decline in the US. I am no mathematician, but I do know you can not spend your way out of dept,  sooner or later you will have to pay that which you owe. Unfortunately, that burden will primarily be on our future generations.  I also know you can’t bleed people dry with taxes when they are already suffering from rising costs of living. It is a recipe for disaster. Not to mention the penalties for not having insurance as I have reported on in my post titled, “Obama’s Promise For No New Taxes Was A Lie.” However, they claim they have made this portion of the bill “better” by exempting more people and lowering penalties for those who don’t comply with the requirement to purchase insurance. But isn’t this America? Shouldn’t we be free to purchase or not purchase insurance according to our desire? We are throwing away our freedoms little by little and giving them to the government to allow our country to turn more and more toward socialism and communism. This government dependence is creating an erosion of the American dream. And you can bet that the health tax (care) bill will only be the beginning.

First we see numerous evidence of schools indoctrinating children to love President Obama and his political policies, now the children are being USED for propaganda. CNN aired children singing a very politically driven song promoting Obamacare agenda. Talk about making your stomach turn! It makes me sick how kids are being manipulated to push government run health care.

I came across this article that was warning of the possible long term effects of the H1N1 vaccine and although it is not anything that I have not read before in that aspect, it did provide some great information about preventing the leading cause of death after contracting the H1N1 virus. The health expert and doctor, Dr. Blaylock, recommends taking vitamin D3 before contracting the virus along with fish oil to reduce immune over reaction. Immune over reaction is the main cause of the virus killing young people. (Although, like I said in previous articles, the mortality rate of this virus is significantly less than the usual seasonal flu.)

I looked up the uses of vitamin D3 and found that it does in fact do what the article communicated. It also assists with a wealth of other functions that would benefit your overall health anyways. And fish oil, well, I can not say enough good things about it. It states in the article, “Fish oils (the best is Carlson’s Norwegian lemon flavored fish oil) also reduce immune overreaction. One teaspoon a day should be sufficient. For severe symptoms, one teaspoon twice a day.” That too, according to my research and findings on the internet, is in harmony with the writings from Dr. Blaylock. In addition, be sure to take a daily multi vitamin for the antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. And of course, remember that good hygiene.

WE DO NOT ADVISE THAT YOU OVER DO ANY OVER THE COUNTER SUPPLEMENTS AND CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.

We hear little on the news now of the declining economy here in the United States, in fact, we hear that the Stimulus has gone as planned. We hear that the economy is slowly picking up again and that consumer spending is growing. But how can this be when the jobs are being lost at record rates, homes are still being lost, and government is still trying to “spend” it’s way out of a recession? It’s not true, that’s how. And the whole world can see it, and they can see that the tactics of the Obama administration are only making matters worse.

Students that were on college campus at the University of Pittsburgh inside a building observing the riots at the G20 summit were trapped and attacked with tear gas. As far as I can tell from the video the students were not doing anything to provoke the attack or the containment.

There are some obscenities in the following video, and although there are other links attached to this video, this is the only one in which we see the actions of the police were in question:

This was not the only reported incident that night.  According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, riot police chased students who were waiting in line at a local restaurant, studying at the library and observing in front of residence halls. And the Student Press Law Center reported that riot police also targeted and arrested journalists as they attempted to document the event. In short, throughout the entire event there were 190 arrests made, 51 of those being University of Pittsburgh students.

News travels quickly whether good or bad. And that goes for even the news surrounding the 2016 Olympics which President Obama and the first lady spent a large amount of time and tax dollars lobbying for to be held in their adoptive home town of Chicago Illinois. Ignoring important national priorities such as Iran’s deception about their hidden nuclear facility, the unemployment rate in the US still rising, and the failing war in Afghanistan; President Obama thought it was imperative that he take nearly a week to fly to Denmark and plead his case as to why the Olympics should be in Chicago in 2016. The first lady Michelle Obama, felt it was so important that she even said it was a “sacrifice” for her, President Obama, and (can’t leave out our elite friends) Oprah.

Obama’s decision to spend so much time on the 2016 Olympics rather than other world issues is even frowned upon by world leaders such as those in France, Britain, and China. Obama’s disregard for the true national priorities were a testimony to them of the lack in leadership that the new President possesses. It goes to show, Obama can grovel and try to impress the world as much as he wants, but he will ultimately lose respect for not leading. Losing Chicago serves them right for allowing it to take precedence over the other matters of national importance.

After all, it is not advertising, bowing down, or a utopian ideology that has made America great. It is our freedom and our strength. It is the resolve in the past to not go down without a fight, and to take on anyone that threatens the freedom and liberty of our nation. It is the determination of our past leaders to see to the issues that effect us most as a nation and handle them in the strongest, and fastest way in the best interest of the people.

As the President of the United States of American, President Barack Obama had no business blind siding the important issues at home and abroad, wasting precious time and money, for a silly aspiration of the Olympics in his home town.

On a lighter note, check out this video footage which I find quite comical of the reaction to the loss of the 2016 Olympics in Chicago:

There will be more video to come, there is a certain one I am looking for right now.

With such a heavy focus on health care, the nuclear threats of Iran and North Korea, and the supposed severity of the H1N1 virus, there have been legislation bills slipped into the Senate and House with few taking notice in the media. Gun rights advocates, however, have kept a watchful eye on these bills and have been getting word out about the propositions at hand.

The more well known of the bills right now is H.R. 45, which not only would make it illegal to own a firearm if you do not provide a driver’s license and Social Security number, but also would require you to provide fingerprints to own a gun. In addition, H.R. 45 would demand that before purchasing a firearm you would have to submit to a physical and mental evaluation. This piece of legislation would expect guns be secured from access by children under age 18, and would empower law enforcement officers to come into your home to make sure that you are complying with the requirements.

Now, the less publicized gun control legislation that has been slipped under the radar is called S 1317. This would allow the attorney general the right to stop gun sales to anyone on the terror watch lists. Doesn’t sound too bad, huh? But wait, there is also H.R. 2647 that contains a companion clause to S 1317 that gives the attorney general the authority to determine who belongs on terrorist watch lists.

This would not be so alarming a few years back, but now the definition of a terrorist in the eyes of the Obama administration is much different than that of the Bush administration. It isn’t the Taliban, or car bombing extremists alone, no, it also includes what many believe to be patriots. Or, as has been said, right wingers, conservatives, anti-abortionists, religious “nuts”, gun rights advocates, those who oppose Obamacare, and more. Those who stand by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights as the law of the land are, in the new administration’s eyes, more dangerous than those mass murders that we have been fighting over seas for the last 7+ years.

Those of us who are “terrorists” in these times are in good company though. George Washington and the patriots known as the Sons of Liberty were viewed by Britain as rebels, or what patriots are being called today, terrorists. Had it not been for this organization, the United States of America, would likely remained under Britain’s tyrannical rule.

So, as history shows, it takes those willing to stand up for their rights to move a country in a good direction and to maintain freedom. Make sure your state’s representatives in the House and Senate know that you will not tolerate these gun restriction bills to be passed in any way, shape, or form. That if they support these pieces of legislation, that they will not be voted back into office.

*As I have stated in previous H1N1 articles, I am in no way shape or form telling anyone to not get the vaccination or to not take proper hygienic precautions to keep themselves from getting this virus and others.*

The H1N1 virus has been hitting the public schools and colleges around the United States somewhat hard already this fall. And being a parent myself, I know how unnerving all of this “swine flu” information can be. As with any influenza virus, it is not something to mess around with. However, I do feel that it is being blown a bit out of proportion. I have been told by several close friends that are practicing doctors that the H1N1 virus is not as serious in typical cases as the usual seasonal flu that we are vaccinated for each year. The mortality rate is significantly lower with the H1N1 virus, and lasting effects seem so far to be minimal as well.
This has also been reported by several health organizations such as the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC), as seen in this report http://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/healthtopics/Documents/0908_Influenza_AH1N1_Risk_Assessment.pdf. It is also now being reported that WHO health officials are admitting that the virus has not mutated into a more severe strain. Even as recent as September 24 at a press conference in Geneva, WHO Director of the Initiative for Vaccine Research, Dr Marie-Paule Kieny stated that “we are lucky that the pandemic is moderate in severity that most people experience a mild illness and recover spontaneously.”

It seems like such a little thing to make such a huge fuss and spend billions of dollars in getting largely untested vaccines out to the whole world. In my opinion, your best defense is still the basics. Wash your hands several times a day, especially after using the restroom and before eating or coming home from the store. Avoid large crowds when possible, and keep away from those who are suspected to have any form of illness. I like to carry the anti bacterial hand gel around so we can sanitize our hands as soon as we leave high traffic places or in case we run into the occasional public restroom out of hand soap.

There is a lot going on in the world today, and that is especially true for the United States of America. On top of an unsteady economy, there are nuclear threats to our allies from Iran, North Korea testing war heads, the world wanting to dump the American dollar, the losing war in Afghanistan, and countless other foreign and domestic issues that require the attention of the US Commander in Chief. But where is our President? Aside from a meeting here and there for what President Obama calls “foreign policy”, he can be found working out, playing 18 holes of golf, enjoying tax funded concerts, hosting tax funded dinners, and as of recently, pulling for the 2016 Olympics to be held in Chicago. I sure am glad he has his priorities straight.

President Obama felt it was necessary to fly to Denmark to lobby for the Olympics in 2016 to be held in the US city of Chicago, elevating this “issue” to a matter of national importance. It is the first time EVER in history that an American President has appeared before the Olympic Committee to bring the games to the country.

I suppose our other international matters are not as pressing. After all, nuclear threats, failing economy, debates in the White House over numerous bills, are not what America needs to focus on at this time. Right? And when you can spend your time and tax payers’ dollars on fun, who wouldn’t take advantage of the down time? You can simply ignore the warnings of a losing war, let other foreign leaders handle the terrorists, and tell the American people things are going great. Oh, and to make yourself look better be sure to get on TV a lot. You know, make advertisements for late night television, hang out with Jay Leno, and appear on every news station to voice your agenda (except for the conservative ones, you wouldn’t want any confrontation).

I think that President Obama is treating his presidency more like a multi-billion dollar company that needs only selective attention rather than a country with a variety of matters. He pays little attention to the issues that do need his immediate attention and blows off the ideas and recommendations of anyone that has conflicting ideas for Obama’s agenda. He has not met with House Republicans since April to review the over 800 amendments they have proposed. He has only spoken with General McChrystal, whom he put in charge of the war in Afghanistan, one time since appointing him even after the warning of losing the war and the request for more troops. Obama treated the G20 Summit like a tree huger convention with a touch of one world planning, and spends a lot of his time relaxing, touring over seas, sight seeing, and lobbying for the Olympics. The only thing I have seen a lot of effort on from the President is his health care reform agenda in which there has been much time spent covering up lies, keeping the people who are for it convinced, and making sure that no one knows that the “other side” has offered many alternatives. I am all for “family night” and a little weekend down time, but Obama seems to do it quite often and not just on the weekends. The election is over Mr. President, it is time to take charge and protect and serve your country as you have promised.

Are you thinking YOUTH INDOCTRINATION? It is definitely happening, whether it is publicly broadcast or not. You can guarantee that for ever little bit that we do see there is a lot more that we do not. In a world so touchy that we can not do so much as talk about God, it is okay for them to “worship” the President? It is disgusting how our children are practically being told how to think politically, religiously, and morally in these atheist school systems.
