Orwellian Scariness and Government

Orwellian Scariness

When I was in high school I read two books by George Orwell. Animal Farm and 1984. This might not have been such a good idea because even though I was a lousy reader at the time, I couldn’t put those books down! At the time those books really spooked me out and I have remembered the stories my whole life. Just ask my kids. ‘snicker’

I remember when the first George Bush presented his speech to Congress and used the words “New World Order”, I almost fell off the couch. That statement gave me chills. Here we are in 2013 and what has happened to this country in my lifetime is nothing less than scary to me. I guess the Bushs are really proud of their legacy, advancing progressive state-ism. Don’t get me wrong the progressive Republican Bush is just the first one to say it out loud. The progressive Democrats were just a bit more stealthily until Obama got his second term. Now, even NATO is trying to infringe themselves into our country’s laws and regulations.

When we came to the United States, capitalism was the way of life and it was not frowned on. We didn’t have big corporate gouger companies. Companies and Corporations came and went based on their performance. For those to young to have learned what capitalism is it is called competition in the market place. No one was bailed out by the government for their bad decisions. Let alone rewarding bad CEO’s with crazy bonuses.

This government’s elitists have given themselves so much power for so long they have lost touch with the general public and, with the exception of a few new comers who are standing ground, most just don’t give a damn about public freedoms and liberty. Amazing how the elitists give themselves exemption to all the rules they lay on us.

Everyone in the press keeps making excuses for this administration and their progressive cohorts. Awe they just don’t know, they are naive, they don’t lie they just embellish the truth, etc. etc. There is no excuse for trying to rid us of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Those progressives know darn well what they are doing! Control of the little people. Making sure they are uneducated, giving all the freebies for votes. I just see it as another form of slavery.

Talk about education. Common Core is really insidious. Talk about scary, collecting data on our children from age 5 to 20. If you are a parent you really need to study up on this effort being supported by many with large amounts of wealth. That program even negates our privacy laws. And all done “for the good of the children”.

Obama Care (Affordable Health Care), which the congress couldn’t take the time to read, undermines all small business giving the edge to the larger corporations, like General Electric, who can eat the costs of compliance. Hum, and I think they didn’t even have to pay taxes. Just a little loop hole in our ever growing tax structure. I’ve shared my feelings about this in a previous post.

Sequester has been in the news a lot recently. Yet this administration was given the option by the House to manage the sequester and the White House refused that option. Lets just make it hurt where it would affect everyone as harshly as possible. So, the White House tours shut down, releasing criminals from jails, the administration can order a remake of Gitmo but the administration hasn’t got the money to refurbish ships due to sequester.

The Federal Reserve printing endless money which only pads the stock market. QE Forever. Double Bubble toil and trouble. I recently heard that the government wants banks to ease their rules for new home loans. Isn’t that a bubble that crashed the first time? Oh, yes, we need to do that one again – sarcasm here.

The Postal Service wanted to make necessary cuts and the Congress says no to their efforts. Eventually leading to another bail out, I’m sure.

The Regulation nation has become the reality. Controlling near about everyone from small business to farming, energy resources,water, fishing, air, and anything else under the guise of being Green. Global warming has now become Extreme weather. Have you noticed how they are naming so many storms on the weather channel? Who does this help? Why insurance companies of course. Most policies have higher deductibles for named storms or disclaimers. Get this, in my neck of the woods, my policy can’t give me market replacement value because I’m in a zoned historical and flood section of the city. Double trouble. I even called my insurance agent at one point and, snidely, asked him if my house were destroyed in a storm would I have enough money to build four cinder block walls and a roof because the city won’t allow me to put a trailer on an empty lot.

Where are the Women’s Rights Activists condemning what the Radical Muslims are doing to women, children and, quit frankly, anyone who doesn’t agree with their sharia laws. Don’t get me wrong there are peaceful, fair minded Muslims here in this country. Muslims who have assimilated into the American way of life. But what is going on in the middle east and even other parts of the world like England where they are protecting sharia under their own laws. Might I mention China’s rules on males and female babies. How come the bra burning women’s activists aren’t raising hell about that kind of treatment instead of raising hell about birth control pills?

Then you have the stupid media pundents making dumb comments comparing our country’s relationship with Canada is like that of the Israelis and Palestinians. Give me a break! I don’t think Canada (our friend) has ever dropped bombs across our borders.

It is just so despicable for these progressive politicians and even President Obama jumping on the gun control band wagon because of the Sandy Hook shooting. How many children do they want to have in the news tearing paper, eating pop tarts, pointing fingers in the shape of a gun? Putting fear in a parents right to take a picture of his child holding a rifle, he was trained to use, to share with friends. Ending up with police knocking on your family home.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the ridiculous spending. Spending money on programs to study snails and fruit flies sexual habits. The green energy companies wasting tax payer dollars without even expecting financial rewards for the stock holders. Lavish trips trips and more trips. Just so much pork and waste in spending in this government is mind boggling. Does the Senate really need free haircuts?

And ol’ Harry Reid won’t bring anything to the table to have a vote on a damn thing. God forbid something might be brought before the President to sign. Oh, unless it is an agenda during a crises that they want to shove down our throats. Then, of course, there is always the trusty faithful Executive Order. I almost forgot that goody. Just skip congress altogether! These dudes can’t balance a budget and I’ve been waiting since Ronald Reagan to see a secured boarder.

Let us not forget that the safety and fairness guys are encroaching into athletics now. No head bumping, no dodge ball, no recognition of honors students. Of course we can’t forget the PC (Politically Correct) police. You cannot say Islamist, gun, illegal immigrant.

I just know that reading George Orwell’s writings was probably foreshadowing for what has now become my future. Lets turn everyone into Sheeple!

Romney Speech Introduces Ryan on Wisconsin

Romney Speech on the Wisconsin in Norfolk, VA

Romney said during his speech at the Wisconsin when he announced Paul Ryan one little thing that made my hair stand on ends. The words were Repeal and Replace Obama Care.

That bothered me quite a bit because up until now I thought the RNC (Republican National Committee)  platform, Romney and the Republicans, were saying was to get rid of Obama Care, period! Then he (Mitt Romney) did his speech to introduce Ryan during which he made the statement Repealing and Replacing. Replace is not a word I wanted to hear in that sentence.

Now, do the Republicans still want to control all of citizens just like the Democrats? I’ve made comments before about how I thought that this Obama Care (National Health Care Act) was nothing more than a bail out of the Insurance Companies that could not sustain their costs and spending. I hope the Republicans are not disguising another ploy for control of the general public!

This is the excerpt of the transcript portion from Fox News:

As poverty has risen to historic and tragic levels with nearly one out of six Americans now having fallen into poverty, we will act to bring these families into the middle class. Unlike the current president, who has cut Medicare funding by $700 billion, we will preserve and protect Medicare and Social Security and keep them there for future generations. And under the current president, health care has only become more expensive. We’re going to reform health care so that more Americans have access to affordable health care and we’ll get that started by repealing and replacing ObamaCare.

Congress Supreme Court Obama Care

I’m an independent and today’s Supreme Court ruling on health care totally depressed me.  But I am not surprised by it either.  I have a slightly different take on this ruling.  While all the political pun-dents out there have been raising hell on behalf of both political points of view.  None of them ever gave tax a thought.  All the media said was that Congress and the President couldn’t call the mandate a tax because it would never get past the Supreme Court.  HA, isn’t that what they just did?

What a joke, I think those corrosive, political, elites had this as the goal all along.  I think that all three branches of this government have been corrupted.  Congress, Justices and the Executive branches are just no better than the unions, crooked giant corporations, wall street and the lobbyists.

They are all in it for power and control.  And we, the people, pay through the nose. The above are such hypocrites because they always make sure they have all the luxuries that they feel entitled to.  Just think about it, Congress, Justices and the Executive don’t have to have Obama Care.  They have their own first class form of insurance.  Through them the unions and corrupt giant corporations get waivers.  And, not to eliminate lobbyists and wall street, they just get their pockets so stuffed with federal money they can pay for pretty much anything they want.  Oh, poop, I almost forgot the elite rich can even afford to give up their citizenship.

Taxing like this will only play right into the United Nation’s global agenda, my personal opinion.  Because if these political elites can call a mandate a tax, what else can they tax?  How about charging us on AIR!  Oh, well, you breath don’t you?  Carbon taxes with the international community looks ever closer.

This country has cities and states going bankrupt and this (our) government is hell bent on charging the population more money by taxation!  The progressives don’t care about stuffing this crap down our throats.  No wonder this administration has added thousands of IRS agents to their payrolls.  They had to so the revenue from this Obama Care plan can be collected.  Rest assured, the IRS will add loop holes to give friends around whatever part of the medical tax they don’t like.

These progressive government elitists have already forced seniors onto medicare.  If you draw social security, you will loose money to medicare at age 65.  Then progressives mandated that all small children must have medical coverage.  Let’s not forget the poor, medicaid, everyone pays that too.  My thought is that this very big bailout for the insurance companies known as Obama Care is just another way to get the rest of the population into the fold.  Which, now, they have done.

If you have previously read my blog you know I have voiced my opinion on some related topics before. 

a-bailout-medical-insurance-obama-care

elections-and-primaries-mostly-dog-and-pony-show 

You may or may not agree but that is ok. 

Sadly, I remember when George Bush Sr. made the creepy statement “New World Order”.  I think this, once, Great Country is there now.  I pray every day it can be changed back.  I want our leaders to go back to the Constitution.

Thank you for reading my blog.

A Bailout? Medical Insurance – Obama Care

A Bailout?  Medical Insurance – Obama Care

I don’t know if anyone else has had these thoughts but here goes. Let me be clear here. I’ve never sold insurance, either life, medical or any other version of the product but I was, by marriage, involved with it for 20 years. Over those years and since, I have noticed how things once were and how things have developed.

 I see this Obama Care medical bill as nothing more than a huge bailout for the insurance companies! The politicians (both established parties) can say what they wish but that is the way I see it because the insurance companies got to a point that payouts would probably jeopardize their companies. Cheaper group plans, more rules and regulations by the government controlling what the companies could and must do.

 I remember the days before medical insurance became a prominent thing in society. You know the days when your Doctor was a family friend and they still made house calls. I won’t go into the history because there are many good articles on the internet about the subject. This is just one example. http://www.ehow.com/about_7233090_history-medical-insurance.html

 I’m just going to stick with what I have experienced over time. I noticed that when insurance came into play with each of these groups I will mention that it did seem very strange to me that the bills always seemed to go higher. When going to your medical doctor, before they took insurance, it seemed to me that one could always reasonably afford the cost. Even a trip to the emergency room was somewhat manageable because there were payment plans. Then as soon as doctor’s offices and hospitals started to really get connected with the insurance companies, the prices seemed to go higher and higher. In a weird twisted way, you kind of had to scramble to be hired by a company that offered medical insurance as a side to the hiring package.

 This really hit home while married to my husband. He worked for a very large insurance group, mostly on the life insurance side back in the day when there was still door to door monthly collections. Now, we had really good coverage to say the least. But I saw so many take advantage of a good thing. I can’t tell you how many times I heard “don’t worry the insurance will pay” or “I don’t care about the cost, I’m insured”. Did they ever check their bills for over-charge? Not many. Another form of abuse in my eyes! My point here might be that the medical insurance became a double edged kind of sword. On the one hand you had patients receiving treatment never questioning the charges and on the other the medical practitioners over-charging. I always questioned the latter and, yes, it did happen.

 Good examples might be chiropractic, dental, and even massage therapy. I remember when I was going to a chiropractor before insurance companies recognized them as viable. The prices were affordable. That group fought long and hard to get recognized by, I guess, the AMA and insurance companies. The minute they were recognized and able to file claims to insurance companies the prices went up, over a cliff! Then you could see the double edged sword again. “Do you have insurance?” if the answer was yes, your charges were higher when you received a bill. And, of course, many customers, early on, did not have coverage. “Do you have insurance?” if the answer was no, you were able to pay what the original quote of care was per visit. Understandable in a way because the chiropractor didn’t want to lose his previous business. But I do believe this practice was considered insurance fraud. I don’t know such details but there were quite a few chiropractors shut down. I guess you cannot have two prices for different groups.

 Same thing happened when I had a lady massage therapist working as a renter from me. She was so excited about being able to submit claims to the insurance companies when the time came around that insurance companies would finally consider massage therapy as necessary and valid. Well she filled out her forms and became certified by the state. Great. Until one day she told me that she was having financial problems and was having a hard time getting me the rent. Well, long story short, she told me she was waiting payments from the insurance companies for the claims she had submitted. I guess she wasn’t thinking when she reveled to me just how much she had been charging the insurance companies and I knew what her rates were to folks that did not have insurance coverage. As said, I had seen this before and told her she would have to leave!! Gee, bad apples make it bad for us all.

 Over the years I have noticed that every time insurance is introduced, prices just don’t go down prices only seem to go up. You betcha! Now you can add dental insurance and veterinarian insurance to the mix. I honestly, don’t know if it is the fraud, litigation or just the cost of living that has made prices go over a cliff. I can only assume that insurance companies wanted to make a profit. I think it got to a point that the many arms of insurance within a company could not sustain all the group plans, general increased costs, limitations of medicare, medicaid and still make their profits. My suspicion is just that unsustainable would be key word. Not enough money coming in to offset the claims. Now, I am not trying to protect big insurance companies for many of the deceptive practices but neither can I protect people cheating them either.

 This is why I think that the new Obama Care that the politicians passed (without even knowing what was in it) was nothing more than a bail out for the medical insurance industry.  A wolf hidden in sheep’s clothing, and this care plan is, certainly, raising its ugly head. Can you tell I have no faith in the political elites up in Washington? They stick their fingers into the pot for power instead of leaving the economy and free market make or break it for any company be it insurance, banks, fanny & freddy, student loans or car dealers. In my opinion if Obama Care is allowed to keep going the prices will never go down and will only go up. It is just in the NATURE of Big Government!
