A chart has been created to illustrate how the House Healthcare plan will affect our government.  It is absolutely incredible to wend your way through this flow chart.

Jamie Dupree has the link so we can download the entire chart.  I recommend that you do.  You really have to see what this Congress of Evil has planned.  http://docs.house.gov/gopleader/House-Democrats-Health-Plan.pdf

Jamie describes it:

It shows the flow between consumers and the various entities that would be set up under this plan, with arrows in multiple colors pointing to big boxes, circles, squares, octagons, rectangles, triangles and more.

There are boxes for “Federal Mandates for Website Design (I didn’t find that one in the actual bill), “Accountable Care Organization,” “Office of Minority Health,” and on and on…

As I said, you really need to see this chart to believe it.  They have provisions for things like ‘Cultural and Linguistic Competence Training’, ‘National Priorities for Performance Improvement’, Comparative Effectiveness Research Commission’, and ‘Advisory Committee on Health Workforce & Evaluation’. 

What this looks like to me, is a whole lot of money (that they don’t have) to pass around to more committees and power-monger groups.  It is more hands in more pockets and ineffective government money pits.

Once again, the word is, LET YOUR REPRESENTATIVES KNOW that you are onto them.  You WILL hold them accountable.  It is not too late yet.  Do not sit there with that glazed look in your eyes saying “what can I do about it?”  You KNOW what you can do about it, because we have been telling you for weeks what you can do about it.  Now it is time to DO it!

WE THE PEOPLE HAVE HAD IT.  Now we need to give it to them.

Obamacare Bill Kills Choice! Don’t believe their lies!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 Thanks once again to Michelle Malkin for this post.

According to the Investors’ Business Daily, they found a provision in the bill that would pretty much kill off the market for personal, individual insurance and funnel everyone into the “consumer option”.

When they found this provision in the 1,018 page bill they didn’t believe it.  So they went to the House Ways and Means Committee for verification.  Yep – it was correct:

The provision would indeed outlaw individual private coverage. Under the Orwellian header of “Protecting The Choice To Keep Current Coverage,” the “Limitation On New Enrollment” section of the bill clearly states:“Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance issuer offering such coverage does not enroll any individual in such coverage if the first effective date of coverage is on or after the first day” of the year the legislation becomes law.

What this basically means is that yes, we can indeed keep our current coverage – indeed; those of us with private individual coverage won’t be able to CHANGE it.  And, if we leave a company to work for ourselves, we will NOT BE ABLE to get individual coverage from a private carrier. 

Sounds to me like choices are becoming limited.

Also according to this MM article, The National Taxpayers Union researched the references to taxes and regulation versus the references to options and choices in this bill.  Here is what they found:

They found 1400 references to “taxes/regulation” compared to 88 for “choice/options.” And this sums it all up:

The terms “consumer-driven” and “patient-driven” as in consumer-driven and patient-driven choices and health care do not appear in the bill.

And, with the additional tax burdens being added to employers and employees alike, this is just further proof that this Obamacare may indeed be the final nail in the coffin of our Free America.

Folks, once again, I implore you to call and fax your representatives.  Let them know that they are being held accountable.  That you will NOT support them approving this monstrosity. 

Obamacare will not heal America.  It will kill it.

You know – it’s unbelievable – a bank suing itself over a condo mortgage.

Only with the government we have today could this kind of thing happen.

Michelle Malkin has found another example of DUH, as she is so great at doing.

Apparently, due to government regs, a bank suing someone for the assets in a foreclosure seizure has to notify all other lienholders of it’s intent to do so, but one of the lienholders (a second mortgage) is itself.

That’s right, Wells Fargo who has extended a first mortgage to the condo developer has filed a suit against the lienholder of the second mortgage, namely Wells Fargo. And, according to the reports, it has HIRED two law firms to do this.

Communist Party takeover almost complete – 1963 checklist – Amazing!

This was brought to my attention when I was reading a Glenn Beck book, and while it has been brought to my attention that Cleon Skousen is a “kook” and someone who is off his rocker – I have researched his biography on several sites.

While this may not have been actually listed in a communist party manifesto, it is interesting to note that a law enforcement officer who served in the FBI and as a Chief of police is considered a nut by some.

I can understand that this may make it be an article that you might take with a bit more of a grain of salt, considering his time in the FBI and the actual list of items that have actually been accomplished, this is still a scary list to behold.

Whether or not this is an actual communist document – this is certainly a list of things that have been accomplished by the progressives in this country. A party, I might certainly add, that have HISTORICAL ties, very long and deep ties, to the Marxist, Socialists and Fascists. 

Now of course, they have other names like Third Way and Democratic, but their ties go way back to the socialist/communist movement.

Considering the Communist Manifesto (which is an actual communist document) leans very much towards what this document purports, it isn’t a stretch to think that this man might have been a bit less nutsy than some might wish to have us think. I have included the 10 planks of the communist manifesto below.

Believe what you want – this document from 1963 does indeed show a line of movement that has been accomplished by the left in this country in small bits and bites.

I felt that I had to reveal what a commentor mentioned to me – although the facts were seriously slanted towards discrediting this list.

I might mention that I find it interesting that he went to lengths to discredit this list when most of it has come true. But, I’m sure that’s just lucky coincidence – right?

PLEASE take a look at the comments below – the original comment from a biased individual, my original reply and then another reply after I went to this site:  http://www.cpusa.org/article/static/758/#6 and got very similar messages from the communist site from their own documents. You be the judge!

 

Communist Goals (1963)
——————————————————————————–

Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35
January 10, 1963

Current Communist Goals

EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.  [What was Obama just in Russia talking about?]

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.  [same]

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength. [same]

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.  [No Ko, China, Iran, Cuba]

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites. [Done]

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination. [same]

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.  [same]

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.   [had been done but Germany fooled ’em]

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress. [done]

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N. [done]

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.) [done]

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.[done]

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.[done – pledge of allegiance?]

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office. [done]

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. [done]

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.  [done]

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.  [done]

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.  [done]

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack. [done]

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions. [done]

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. [done]

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”  [done]

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”  [done – certainly can’t have anything patriotic – must be crucifixes in pee or something]

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press. [done]

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. [done]

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” [done]

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”  [done]

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”  [done]

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.  [done]

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”  [done]

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.  [done – in high school and college – I wasn’t taught pre czar era much]

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.    [done]

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.  [done]

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.  [done]

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.  [not done]

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.  [done]

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.  [working]

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].  [done]

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.  [done]

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.  [done]

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.  [done]

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.  [done]

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.  [done]

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.  [done]

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.  [New Obama appointee is an internationalist who believes US law should be superceded by international law including World Court]

10 Conditions For Transition To Communism

  9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equal distribution of the population over the country.
  10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.[7]

 

Statistics on Nationalized Healthcare – 100% Fascinating!

Still thinking there is nothing wrong with the proposed Obamacare?   Still thinking it might be okay, and that really, we have to take care of all those uninsured – even though there really isn’t any such thing, as it is AGAINST THE LAW for a (non-private) hospital to turn down any patient, regardless of their financial situation?

Well, on Hot Air today, I found some great statistics!  Here are a few:

60: Average cancer survival rate (all types) for patients in the United States. Canada’s survival rate is significantly lower at 55%, while Europe’s is a dismal 48%.

81: Average percentage of those who survive a diagnosis of prostate cancer in the United States versus 43% in Britain under their National Health Service.

90: Number of days, on average, each Canadian patient must wait for an MRI under the Canadian government-run health care system.

Not good enough for you?  How about these:

10,000: Number of Canadian breast cancer patients to file a class action lawsuit against Quebec’s hospitals because, on average, they were forced to wait 60 days to begin post-operative radiation treatments.

280,392: The number of jobs that employers would shed if government levied an employer mandate, requiring them to insure all employees. A 2007 study by Katherine Baicker of Harvard University and Helen Levy of the University of Michigan (“Employer Health Insurance Mandates and the Risk of Unemployment“) found that “0.2 percent of all full-time workers and 1.4 percent of uninsured full-time workers would lose their jobs if a health insurance mandate were written into law. Workers who would lose their jobs are disproportionately likely to be high school dropouts, minority, and female.”

There are more stats that are equally interesting and I heartily suggest you read them all.  Heck, use these stats in your efforts to convince your state representatives that their careers are at risk if they pass this proposal. 

If you don’t believe these facts, you can research online and get your own facts and stats.  They are everywhere.  Obama chooses to either ignore them or to edit them for his own purposes, ie:  “There are many countries who have the single payer system, and it works pretty darned good”.  There is nowhere where it works ‘pretty darned good’.  And it won’t work pretty darned good here, either.  The big problem is, where will WE go for quality health care when the U.S.’s healthcare system is nationalized?  Switzerland?

Barack – 2nd stimulus possible – Distorts truth about other options

 Barack Obama has the gall to say the following:

“I don’t take anything off the table when unemployment is close to 10 percent and a lot of Americans are hurting out there,” Obama told FOX News Tuesday. 

The president also touted his programs that have allowed states to halt firings of teachers, police officers and firefighters. He said the projects that are toughest to start up, the infrastructure projects, should be pushed out by the end of the year. 

Obama has said that his domestic agenda, including an overhaul of the health system is key to getting the economy back on track, and he said those who criticized his first stimulus and the possibility of a second one don’t have a plan to offer themselves. 

“There are a whole bunch of critics out there who said we shouldn’t have any stimulus at all. And in fact, some of the same folks who are now saying, ‘Where are the jobs?’ don’t really have a recipe other than doing nothing for the economic circumstances that we’re in,” Obama told FOX News. 

Um, now that isn’t true, and the man has to know that. If he is stating that as fact, then he is lying. Period.

There were several options, including the idea of a 6 month tax holiday so we could all bring home EVERY penny we made. Can you imagine the stimulus to the economy if people could have brought home 787 billion more in 6 months? Couldn’t chance that though.

But, really, that would have been too easy. It also would have kept the Congress out of power and let the people know how good it felt to actually bring home their full pay check. God forbid that ever happens. That’s why they fight the fair tax so hard.

But now, Obama is talking about a 2nd stimulus, which according to polls a MAJORITY and a solid majority at that don’t want, trust or think we need.

They haven’t spent 5% of the first one and they think we need a 2nd one?

What is this other than another blatant attempt for the children to get a hold of mommy’s purse again?

This spending spree is being designed to do one thing. Destroy the United States, capitalism, free markets and chase everyone to Big Papa Government for help.

We have to stop this now. If we don’t put the fear of God into these reps about Health Care, Cap and Trade, EFCA and now another stimulus plan – we are seeing the end of what we hold dear.

The worst part is that many people don’t know what they’ll be missing until they actually lose it.

Small businesses fight back vs. Cap and Trade

 What part of “the temperature has dropped a degree in the last 3 years on average” don’t these environmental clowns understand?

These people keep pushing through what isn’t necessary.

The cap and trade bill is going to cost us all.

And Fox has discovered that small businesses have raised up and are fighting back as well. Wal Mart may have given in to the Corporatism that tends to follow a National Socialistic movement, but smaller businesses haven’t.

We need to step up our fight with the Senators – now.

Here is one business owner’s take:

“We make (our product) with electricity, we bake it with gas, we refrigerate and freeze it with electricity and we distribute it with gas and oil,” said McArthur, who said he worries that high prices could cost his company up to $15,000 a year in an industry with a very tight margin for profit.

You think the government gives a crap about this guy? Look at what he says – this is going to hit you too. All of you. All of us! This is a huge cost increase that will pass along to all of us consumers – but that’s ok with the reps and senators because they know better than all us little people. They forget they were the little people before we elevated them.

Check out this article to see more about how small businesses are fighting back  🙂
