In FL Gov Rick Scott pay $8.34 A MONTH HEALTH INSURANCE on kp11 at 311423

Florida Governor Rick Scott at his deposition in the fraud case the Federal Government brought to court in the nineties!     EYEONCITRUS.COM LONE WOLF PRESENTATION

The Governor of Florida, Rick Scott and his GOP buddies in Tallahassee have to pay $8.34 per month for individual Health Insurance and for family coverage, $30.00 per month. This is the man who turned down what the Federal government was offering for expanded coverage for the under and uninsured citizens of Florida, but because Rick Scott thought it was more fashionable for him and his Republican gang operating the state not to accept the funds, thousands of Floridians now have no health insurance, can’t get health insurance, are in no man’s land because of an ideological difference. This difference is sacrificing people’s health and lives.

Not only is that wrong, in of itself, it’s deplorable when you realize that this is the man, Rick Scott, that made his fortune off of exploiting the very federal government programs that he wants to eliminate and decided that Floridians did not need this avenue for their health care. This is typical of the Corporate Fascist ideology that has taken over the country. When they cannot get their way, they attempt to destroy existing programs and block new programs that might assist those who desperately need them. The Corporate Fascist party of choice is the Republican party which is lock and step in accordance to their guiding light, which is the bottom line, come damn or high water.

It is of importance to note, that Rick Scott was a member of the State of Texas bar, the state that the Bush and their Nazi connection call home. But I diverge, ultimately, the only way the citizens of the State of Florida and those of the United States will ever get their rights back, remembering the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, is to vote the GOP out of all their positions in government and decimate this evil, cabal  of individuals whose only concern is their wallet. The Republican party must be thrown into the trash bin of history and only remembered as a bad taste in a free American’s mouth.

MANUFACTURED FEAR                            EYEONCITRUS.COM

After 911 Bush and Company hurriedly passed the over two thousand page law called the Patriot Act which fundamentally abridged our Constitutional rights whenever those in power choose to utilize it. This document of over 2000 pages was brought into being within two weeks which can only lead one to wonder how long in advance had this instrument been prepared? Unfortunately when President Obama came to power there was no movement toward revoking this unconstitutional bit of legislation. In fact, he strengthened the provisions of it and there it is, just sitting for the opportune moment to implement. There are many who believe it is just a continuation of the march toward Totalitarianism via the Nazi-Socialist state reminiscence of the Hitler regime in Germany. For those unfamiliar with the Nazi-Socialist state, this is where the corporate enterprises of a country receive benefits from the government at the expense of the people. And it is not surprising that there would be this suspicion, for those who know, after the Second World War the Allies immediately began to harvest the best of the German inventors and scientists in all fields. Russia gave them no choice, help us or be sent to Siberia. The United States, on the other hand, offered them all the amenities this country had to offer and with that these Nazi who had committed some of the most atrocious acts to humanity known to man in the twentieth century were assimilated into the everyday life of America!

That could have been the end of it, but it was not, like a cancer that starts with a few cells, these Nazi conspirators continued with what Hitler had begun in Germany, working on the inside, as was Hitler’s Modus Operandi, silently and softly, waiting for the moment, when the final takeover would occur. As Hitler orchestrated the Reichstag burning and blamed it on the Communist, Bush and company had their 911 and blamed it on the terrorists of the world. Hitler marched off across Europe and Africa and the American Empire marched off to the Middle East.

The Nazis that came over were productive, they spread their philosophy to those whose only agenda would be greed and power, and there were many that fell into that mold. Evil begets Evil.

The stage was set, the theme promoted, big government for the people was bad, when it related to health, welfare and justice. Privatize, get government out of the picture, un-regulate the Corporate Monolith and let it have its dominion over the earth along with the military-industrial complex, it method of obtaining the riches of the world. It’s march across the globe, in search of much needed natural resources no longer available in the United States, resources that would fill the coffers of the elitists with billions and billions.

With hate and fear mongering being the backdrop for their adventures the human paradigm changed, it regressed, rather than marching into the 21st century with a enlightenment of understanding and cooperation, which would of led to the betterment of mankind, just the opposite has occurred. And with this, despair has attached itself to certain segments of society, a despair that cannot see any hope, any justice. It is this despair that leads to the moment of madness that has manifested itself across the Nation and world.

The rich and powerful that have done so many misdeeds that have cost the Nation and the World so much, not only in terms of money, but the humanity that has been lost and forever changed, they always escape justice, always are immune to the law. Even though their wrongs have resulted in so much pain and suffering, the only thing they get for all of this is the American taxpayer, the middle class, bailing them out to began the cycle once again. When will justice actually be blind and the guilty be punished?

The earth has suffered irreparable damage because of these people; they have squandered our birthright, our destiny, and mother earths.

 

A well put together video, it’s worthwhile, the truth must be preserved for humanity.

Americans Psyche

The cancer that was the George Bush and Dick Cheney’s Presidency, that bled this country dry of our resources both monetarily and of our young, took another step toward remission. This cancer that spewed forth the rants and raves of hatred that encompassed a big portion of Washington D.C. and made its way onward into the states was given a mighty dose of enlightenment by the American people. The cancer that was trying to relapse because it hadn’t been entirely eradicated failed. But it will always require preventive measures because the chances of reoccurrence is great, it is much harder to eradicate once it has taken over than it is to prevent. It requires an outspokenness of the enlighten, who had given it the foothold it needed by quiet acquiescence to its onslaught.

The GOP thought that through billions of dollars in advertising that it was going to be enough, enough to get their agenda of enslaving the people and returning them into the realm of yesteryear, when the Nation was experiencing the growing pains of a new country, which promised much to its citizens but was still in the process of achieving.

Big on promises, short on delivery, yet as the years passed and more steps were taken to fulfill those promises, there brooded an underlying evil, an evil that is always present, in many different forms. This evil waits for any given opportunity to raise its ugly head and if the opportunity does not emerge then one is created by it.

The unanswered questions of 911, the march to war based on lies (WMD’s), the Patriot Act, all of these events demonstrate an evil enterprise at work to manipulate minds and hearts. The free and rich versus the enslaved and poor blinding the masses with rhetoric of hatred resulting in disunity and bewilderment, would you even know, if the person that sat down next to you is evil? If that person spews forth hatred toward his fellow man, blaming all others for the world around him, touting freedom, but not wanting it for certain groups, conditional freedom for them, and if that person cannot examine an issue based on facts rather than emotion, then evil has entwined their soul. When this evil permeates through a large segment of society and reaches the individual who is on the precipice of rational thought and psychotic reality the results have been shown multiples of time in the news, of mass killings, shootings, and destruction, the evil reaps what it sows.

Changing of the Republican Logo EYEONCITRUS.COM

Even though evil results are apparent, it stills wants to be acknowledged. It is acknowledge when action taken by an individual who is engulfed in its cloak speaks to that fact, but it stills want to make sure that, in the end, there can be no doubt, no doubt as to who took over the world, so in the most subliminal way it demonstrates it was there and should be given the credit, when the time comes.

When Bush and Cheney took over the White House in 2000, a subtle, yet very apparent changed occurred to the logo of the Republican Party. The field of stars that surround the Elephant had pointed upward, towards the heavens, during and after Bush and Cheney, the Stars point downward to hell, Heaven versus Hell.

It is the events of those years, along with the transformation of so many into non-thinking robots spewing forth their doctrine of hate that can only make one wonder, how obvious does it have to be?

Whether you believe in the supernatural connotations, or not, the facts are obvious that Americans Psyche underwent a dramatic change with the arrival of George Bush and Company and their emergence did fundamental harm to the Nation and its citizens.

Scum Bucket Bush

In EYEONCITRUS.COM, Scum Bucket Bush on kp34 at 311231

This scum bucket George Bush once again appeared at the White House, with his beady little eyes looking back and forth with amazement, wondering when, if ever the truth will be discovered about his misdeeds as president of the United States. Arm in arm with his accessory after the fact, Pres. Barack Obama, the continuation of the lies will persist on into the future. Bush along with his cabal of criminals are wanted in many countries around the world for their crimes against humanity, in fact, he and his cohorts would be arrested if they set foot in any one of these countries. Yet here in the United States he is still treated as some type of hero, unimaginable.Accessory After the Fact, Obama, and the #1 Criminal of the 21st Century, George Bush

Michael Moore’s take on getting out of Iraq!

In 911 FOR THE TRUTH, further proof, homosassa, Janet Jackson's breast, Michael Moore's take on getting out of Iraq!, misleading statements, New Pearl Harbor, truth be told, xxx on kp07 at 301021

This is a very good article from Michael Moore, what he delineates are the reasons we are still in such a mess as a Nation and a people. These reasons are blatant and should never be allowed to happen again. Even though Obama seems to be tied to the Bush Doctrine of appeasing the military-industrial complex and the oil industry, it would be a grave mistake to let the fox once again guard the chicken coop. And don’t for one minute be foolhardy enough to believe that these Teabaggers are anything more than the right fringe element of the Republican Party and in that role their identity is nothing more than the elite’s stooges who will bend to their every whim and call. All anyone has to do to realize the truth of this statement is to do an analysis of who is supplying the money for these individuals campaign. The truth is in the pudding. EyeOnCitrus

I know we’ve been “free” of the Iraq War for two weeks now and our minds have turned to the new football season and Fashion Week in New York. And how exciting that the new fall TV season is just days away!

But before we get too far away from something we would all just like to forget, will you please allow me to just say something plain and blunt and necessary:

We invaded Iraq because most Americans — including good liberals like Al Franken, Nicholas Kristof & Bill Keller of the New York Times, David Remnick of the New Yorker, the editors of the Atlantic and the New Republic, Harvey Weinstein, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer and John Kerry — wanted to.

Of course the actual blame for the war goes to Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Wolfowitz because they ordered the “precision” bombing, the invasion, the occupation, and the theft of our national treasury. I have no doubt that history will record that they committed the undisputed Crime of the (young) Century.

But how did they get away with it, considering they’d lost the presidential election by 543,895 votes? They also knew that the majority of the country probably wouldn’t back them in such a war (a Newsweek poll in October 2002 showed 61% thought it was “very important” for Bush to get formal approval from the United Nations for war — but that never happened). So how did they pull it off?

They did it by getting liberal voices to support their war. They did it by creating the look of bipartisanship. And they convinced other countries’ leaders like Tony Blair to get on board and make it look like it wasn’t just our intelligence agencies cooking the evidence.

But most importantly, they made this war (and its public support) happen because Bush & Co. had brilliantly conned the New York Times into running a bunch of phony front-page stories about how Saddam Hussein had all these “weapons of mass destruction.” The administration gleefully fed this false information not to Fox News or the Washington Times. They gave it to America’s leading liberal newspaper. They must have had a laugh riot each morning when they’d pick up the New York Times and read the nearly word-for-word scenarios and talking points that they had concocted in the Vice President’s office.

I blame the New York Times more for this war than Bush. I expected Bush and Cheney to try and get away with what they did. But the Times — and the rest of the press — were supposed to STOP them by doing their job: Be a relentless watchdog of government and business — and then inform the public so we can take action.

Instead, the New York Times gave the Bush administration the cover they needed. They could — and did — say, ‘Hey, look, even the Times says Saddam has WMD!’

With this groundwork laid, the Bush crowd ended up convincing a whopping 70% of the public to support the war — a public that had given him less than 48% of its vote in 2000.

Early liberal support for this war was the key ingredient in selling it to a majority of the public. I realize this is something that no one in the media — or most of us — really wants to discuss. Who among us wants to feel the pain of having to remember that liberals, by joining with Bush, made this war happen?

Please, before our collective memory fades, I just want us to be honest with ourselves and present an unsanitized version of how they pulled off this war. I can guarantee you the revisionists will make sure the real truth will not enter the history books.

Children born when the war began started second grade this month.

Kids who were eleven in 2003 are now old enough to join up and get killed in Iraq in a “non-combat capacity.”

They’ll never understand how we got here if we don’t.

So let me state this clearly: This war was aided and abetted by a) liberals who were afraid to stick their necks out and thus remained silent; and b) liberals who actually said they believed Colin Powell’s cartoon presentation at the U.N. and then went against their better judgment by publicly offering their support for the invasion of Iraq.

First, there were those 29 (turncoat) Democratic senators who voted for the war. Then there was the embarrassing display of reporters who couldn’t wait to be “embedded” and go for a joy ride on a Bradley tank.

But my real despair lies with the people I counted on for strong opposition to this madness — but who left the rest of us alone, out on a limb, as we tried to stop the war.

In March of 2003, to be a public figure speaking out against the war was considered instant career suicide. Take the Dixie Chicks as Exhibit A. Their lead singer, Natalie Maines, uttered just one sentence of criticism — and their career was effectively dead and buried at that moment. Bruce Springsteen spoke out in their defense, and a Colorado DJ was fired for refusing to not play their songs. That was about it. Crickets everywhere else.

Then MSNBC fired the only nightly critic of the war — the television legend, Phil Donahue. No one at the network — or any network — spoke up on his behalf. There would never again be a Phil Donahue show. (Little did GE know that, when they soon filled that 8pm hour with a sports guy by the name of Keith Olbermann, they would end up with the war’s most brilliant and fiercest critic, night after night after night.) There were a few others — Bill Maher, Janeane Garofalo, Tim Robbins and Seymour Hersh — who weren’t afraid to speak the truth. But where was everyone else? Where were all those supposed liberal voices in the media?

Instead, this is what we were treated to back in 2003 and 2004:

** Al Franken, who said he “reluctantly” was “a supporter of the war against Saddam.” And six months into the war Al was still saying, “There were reasons to go to war against Iraq … I was very ambivalent about it but I still don’t know if it was necessarily wrong (to go to war).”

** Nicholas Kristof, columnist for the New York Times, who attacked me and wrote a column comparing me to the nutty right-wingers who claimed Hillary had Vince Foster killed. He said people like me were “polarizing the political cesspool,” and he chastised anyone who dared call Bush’s reasons for going to war in Iraq “lies.”

** Howell Raines, editor-in-chief of the “liberal” New York Times, who was, according to former Times editor Doug Frantz, “eager to have articles that supported the war-mongering out of Washington … He discouraged pieces that were at odds with the administration’s position on Iraq’s supposed weapons of mass destruction and alleged links of al-Qaeda.” The book “Hard News” reported that “according to half a dozen sources within the Times, Raines wanted to prove once and for all that he wasn’t editing the paper in a way that betrayed his liberal beliefs…”

** Bill Keller, at the time a New York Times columnist, who wrote: “We reluctant hawks may disagree among ourselves about the most compelling logic for war — protecting America, relieving oppressed Iraqis or reforming the Middle East — but we generally agree that the logic for standing pat does not hold. … we are hard pressed to see an alternative that is not built on wishful thinking.”

(The New York Times is so left-wing that when Raines retired, they replaced him with… Keller.)

** The New Yorker, the magazine for really smart liberals, found its editor-in-chief, David Remnick, supporting the war on its pages: “History will not easily excuse us if, by deciding not to decide, we defer a reckoning with an aggressive totalitarian leader who intends not only to develop weapons of mass destruction but also to use them. … a return to a hollow pursuit of containment will be the most dangerous option of all.” (To cover its ass, the New Yorker had another editor, Rick Hertzberg, write an anti-war editorial as a rebuttal.)

Some of the above have recanted their early support of the war. The Times fired its WMD correspondent and apologized to its readers. Al Franken has been a great Senator. Kristof now writes nice columns (check out last Sunday’s).

But the support of the war by these leading liberals and the majority of the Democrats in the Senate made it safe for the Right to let loose a vicious and unchecked tirade of hate and threats on anyone (including myself) who dared to step out of line. It was not uncommon to hear the media describe me as “un-American,” “anti-American,” “aiding the terrorists,” and being a “traitor.”

Here are just a couple of examples of what was said about me over the airwaves by two of the nation’s leading conservative commentators:

“Let me just tell you what I’m thinking. I’m thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I’m wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out — is this wrong? I stopped wearing my ‘What Would Jesus Do’ band, and I’ve lost all sense of right and wrong now. I used to be able to say, ‘Yeah, I’d kill Michael Moore,’ and then I’d see the little band: ‘What Would Jesus Do?’ And then I’d realize, ‘Oh, you wouldn’t kill Michael Moore. Or at least you wouldn’t choke him to death.’ And you know, well, I’m not sure.” (Glenn Beck)

And:

“Well, I want to kill Michael Moore. Is that all right? All right. And I don’t believe in capital punishment. That’s just a joke on Moore.” (Bill O’Reilly)

(Ironically, O’Reilly made his threat/joke the night after Janet Jackson’s breast was bared at the Super Bowl — which got CBS fined over half a million dollars because, you know, nipples are far more frightening than death threats.)

So that’s how I’ll personally remember the early war years: living with a real and present danger caused by the hate whipped up by right-wing radio and TV. (I’ve been advised not to recount certain specific incidents that happened to me, as it would only encourage other crazy people.)

So I dealt with it. And I’m still here. And I know many of you went through your own crap, standing up against the war at school, or work, or at Thanksgiving dinner, taking your own blows for simply saying what was the truth.

But how much easier it would have been for all of us if the liberal establishment had stood with us? We didn’t own a daily newspaper, or a magazine with a circulation in the millions. We didn’t have our own TV show or network. We weren’t invited on shows like “Meet the Press,” because they simply could not allow our voice to be heard.

The media watchdog group FAIR reported that in the three weeks after the war started, the CBS Evening News allowed only one anti-war voice on their show — and that was on one night in one soundbite (and that was four seconds of me in a line from my Oscar speech) — even though in March of 2003 our anti-war numbers were in the millions (remember the huge demonstrations in hundreds of cities?). We were around 30% of the country according to most polls (that’s nearly 100 million Americans!) and yet we had no way to communicate with each other aside from through the Nation and a few websites like CommonDreams.org and Truth-Out.org.

But that was no way to build a huge mass movement of Middle Americans to oppose the war. Unless you had just lucked out and been handed an Oscar on live television in front of a gazillion people where you had 45 seconds to say something before they cut you off and booed you off the stage (hahahaha), you had no public platform. (Jeez, I sure did get booed a lot that year: simply walking through an airport, or eating dinner in a restaurant, or sitting at a Laker game where they suddenly put me up on the Jumbotron and the place went so angry-crazy that Larry David, who was sitting next to me, felt that maybe for his own safety he should perhaps slide a few seats down or go get us a couple of wieners. Instead, he stuck by my side — and his skillful ninja moves got us out of there alive after the game.)

I know it’s hard to remember, but when this war started, there was no YouTube, no Facebook, no Twitter, no way for you to bypass the media lords so you could have your own friggin’ say.

Too bad for the bastards, those days are over.

The next time around, it won’t be so easy to shut up a country girl band or try to silence someone while he accepts his little gold statue — or completely ignore the millions of citizens in the streets.

So now we can hope that one of our wars is over. Too bad we lost. I hate to lose, don’t you? But the fact is, we lost the very day we invaded a sovereign nation that posed absolutely no threat to us and had nothing to do with 9/11. We lost lives (over 4,400 of ours, hundreds of thousands of theirs), we lost limbs (a total of 35,000 troops came back with various wounds and disabilities and God knows how many more with mental problems). We lost the money our grandchildren were supposed to live on.

And we lost our soul, who we were, what we stood for as a once-great country — lost it all. Can we now ask for redemption — for forgiveness? Can we be… “America” again?

I guess we’ll see. The vast majority of the country eventually came around to the Dixie Chicks’ position. And we elected an anti-Iraq-war guy by the name of Barack Hussein Obama.

But, please, promise yourselves never to forget how our country went crazy 7 1/2 years ago — even though, to many people at the time, it seemed completely normal. And I’m here to tell you, no matter how much better it’s gotten, no matter how normal you may think things are now, we’re still halfway nuts. Just listen to the new batch of “sensible pundits” as they start to beat the drums about what we should do to Iran. One war down, one (or two or three) to go.

C’mon, Mr. President, not one more kid needs to die overseas wearing a uniform with our flag on it. We can’t win like this. Let’s dig a few thousand wells in Afghanistan, build a few free mosques, leave behind some food and clothing, fix their electrical grid, issue an apology and set up a Facebook page so they can stay in touch with us — and then let’s get the hell out. Your own National Security Advisor and your CIA Director have told you there are less than 100 al-Qaeda fighters in the entire country. 100???

100,000 U.S. troops going after 100 al-Qaeda? Is this a Looney Tunes presentation? “A-ba-dee-a-ba-dee-a-ba-dee — That’s All Folks!” Let’s get real. I’m glad one war is “over.” But I know how we got there — and I’m willing now to fight just as hard to stop these other wars if you won’t, Mr. Obama.

Your call.

 

Yours,

Michael Moore

P.S. Just a thought, Mr. President. Can I ask that you go back and watch this movie I made — “Fahrenheit 9/11.” There might be some answers there. I give you my permission to download it for free by going to this site: TorrentHound.com. Don’t tell the studio I said it was ok! They’ve only made a half a billion $$ on it so far.
