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.
GOP AND RICK SCOTT FRAUD DECEPTION OF CORPORATE FASCIST STATE
Preparing for next election, the Parties in bed with the Corporate Monolith
When President Eisenhower gave his farewell address in 1960 he warned the citizenry and future Presidents about the military-industrial complex and their influence. This group has been controlling everything since the end of his term, he saw and knew what they did, and his warnings were not heeded by JFK, who they murdered, and the following Presidents gave them free reign. The military-industrial complex is the ultimate privatization of our government at it’s worst. It has led others to seek to privatize the rest of the government, there can be nothing less dangerous and foreboding to our way of life. What should have been making news here in Citrus County, as well as the Nation is only now occurring, ten years after the fact, and it’s only a secondary topic, because of one brave teacher in the Citrus County School system who actually knows what a Democracy is all about. And it’s not about spreading the propaganda line of the government, that’s what the national, corporate controlled, media, does every day, a government whose fourth branch, a non-elected, hidden, non-representative, branch of government which answers to no one, except it’s Corporate Wall Street bankers, the same bankers the people bailed out after they wheeled and deal with our lives and monies causing the depression that we are trying to survive. There are countless professional groups, including association of Engineers, Airline Pilots, Architects, Senior Military people, Intelligence Officers, Law Enforcement, and Government Officials who question the 9/11 Commission Report, Respected Medical Professionals Launch New 9/11 Truth Group, just recently, and the list is nearly endless. Canadian television has shown documentaries that reveal the lies and deception, these programs have not been able to get licensing here in the states to air. It is imperative that we push forward the Agenda of Accountability to the Obama Administration for the high treasonable crimes committed by the Bush Administration and all the traitors in Congress who went along for the ride. They left us a world that is filled with hatred toward the United States and its people, while corporate America raped and pillage our natural resources for the bottom line. Is Obama part of this cabal? The jury is still out on that, yet, by his adherence to many of the same doctrines of Bush’s Regime it’s not looking good. If you call yourself an American, whatever your political leanings you would not hesitate to investigate for yourself the atrocities of these people. Their false flag operation of 911 and the aftermath has left us and the world far worse off than ever before, it is time to call for action, do not let Obama neglect his duty as the commander and chief of our Nation. He must direct, at once, Eric Holder, the Attorney General to reopen the investigation of 911 and all the misdeeds that led up to it. The truth is unpleasant and not easy to accept, but it doesn’t change the fact of its veracity. Our sons and daughters should have never been sent to war for the benefit of the military-industrial complex and all the people who profit from such enterprises. TO all the brave men and women who marched off to defend this country and the world from the Japanese aggression and Hitler’s Germany during the Second World War, I thank you, even though others now seem to lessen your sacrifices by abandoning the principles for which you fought, it is a disgrace to their memories that we allowed ourselves to be manipulated and overrun by the corporate monolith that is America today. This blatant disregard for life and focus on obtaining the wealth of the world for its own financial gain, letting nothing stand in its way, whether common sense or the truth. The structure that was created out of necessity to win the war, the military-industrial complex, turned its ugly head around and forgot why it was created in the first place, to preserve Democracy and our way of life in the United States. To all the brave men and women today who serve, I thank you, and realize you are putting your lives and bodies on the line to preserve the idea that was America and the promise that it once held. It doesn’t make your scarifies any less than those who served before because your serving with the belief that you are still protecting the same United States of America, as your forebears did, it is not your fault that others have manipulated events for their own personal interests and have dramatically change the fabric of our Nation. There are those in our government who believe that the sacrificing of lives, say 3000, or so, as in the World Trade Center, is for the greater good, or that’s at least, what they would tell you if they were ever to be held accountable. Of course, their greater good, doesn’t necessarily translate into yours and that has been the thinking of despots since the beginning. These people hold the belief that your faith in the government will always protect them from you learning the truth, that how could it possibly be that your government would harm its own people? Yet, the news is filled with family members killing family members, is the government immune to this type of behavior? After all, we blame the government for just about every other possible deficiency, why is it so hard to admit to its greatest betrayal of all? There has been a desensitization of the population for decades through the mass media portrayals of war games, violent video games, and the lack of battlefront real news reporting. Today war is homogenized; the real effects are only dealt with in mundane, analytical statistics resulting in the human element being removed from the equation , when that happens it removes the need to avoid war at all costs. When there was still an iota of real news, as during the Viet Nam War, Americans got to see the body report every night, along with the body bags, and they understood, felt the effects of war, after all, over fifty thousand Americans died, and for what? The world did not come to an end when we pulled out of Viet Nam, in fact, you can go there now for vacation. And like France, which fought in Viet Nam, we had to pull out, it being the first war that the United States ever lost! But wait, war is not a game of winning or losing, although it may seem that way, it is about freedom! And did we lose any by escaping the torture of Viet Nam, of course not, the answer is NO; however, have we lost any freedom from the false flag operation of 911? The overwhelming answer is YES! But it’s not freedom lost by defeat on the battlefield, its freedom lost by those who manipulated the events. The Patriot Act effectively destroyed the Bill of Rights and their insistence on keeping it in effect is testimony to their fear that you might one day discover the truth. Thinking your free and being free are not the same thing and as long as you never cross paths with any governmental agency or law enforcement you may never come to realize that, but when, and if every, you do, rest assured, it will be too late. Now we are off invading Libya, yes it is a no fly zone, remember Iraq and the no fly zone there? Does this make your spine tingle with excitement? Can you hardly wait until our forces go marching in, with their American flags sewn on their sleeves backward so that it looks like it’s blowing in the wind, how proud? Wake up, you’ve been conditioned, it’s called behavioral conditioning, it’s like Pavlov’s dog hearing the bell ring and salivating at the mouth. There are no invasion forces in the United States, how do you think we would respond to foreign invaders across the land? The military-industrial complex that Eisenhower warned everybody about is here, has been since the end of the second world war, it murdered a President, to go into Viet Nam and has been controlling things every since, it brought down the towers and going into Iraq was just an added benefit, the towers were destroyed to hide the fact that numerous investigations were coming to a conclusion regarding a slush fund containing hundreds of billions of dollars that was used for covert operations since the end of the second world war. The financial firms that were destroyed in the towers held the evidence, along with the super vault in the basement of one tower, which had to be completely obliterated. On Sept 10, 2001, Rumsfeld announced that the Pentagon could not account for 2.3 Trillion dollars, the next day the ACCOUNTING Dept. is the only dept. destroyed in the pentagon! Don’t think that this wasn’t planned a long time in advance; it was in the works for at least two to three years. This was and is privatization at its ugliest and what will result is the Corporate States of America. They have put their people into the Supreme Court and have ruled that Corporations have the same status as you and I. Now they are eliminating corporate taxes, Ric Scott here in Florida, doesn’t want Corporations to pay any taxes! Who do you think will be paying for everything, it’s a war on the Middle Class, that if it’s not stop, will destroy the Middle Class, it is nearly there, and if you don’t realize it, just let things keep going this way, and one day you’ll awaken and wonder what happened, remember you put the Fox in charge of the henhouse? Start connecting the dots and opening your eyes, it’s your money, but more importantly, it’s your sons and daughters lives and our freedom!
The realm of reality goes way beyond the public consciousness which is controlled by the worldwide corporate monolith and those individuals who can see beyond this manipulation are the last vestige of hope for an enslaved world. UFO cover-ups are just one symptom of the cancer that manipulates the human mind reference Pavlov’s classical behavioral conditioning and our “Skinner Box”, the electronic media.
After the GOP had rape and pillaged the Nation leading us into the Great Depression, FDR, came along and had to bring the country back from their grips,in order to restore the Nation. The Republicans of that era even went so far as to plot to overthrow his new leadership, but that’s another bit of history.
The GOP has gotten away with terrorism in allowing and orchestrating the events of 911. With such success they have built upon that framework for terrorism so that any opposition or differing points of view are chastised and ridiculed. As each day that passes they become more embolden and suggest the most repugnant ideas that Americans have ever had to experience and ARE are now too timid and afraid to raise their voices of opposition against. The dismantling of our Constitution, via The Patriot Act, because of the excuse of 911 is just one of the many brazen steps that they have taken to gain complete control of our Republic. More and more know the truth, become one of them, by spreading the word with the numbers grow and with each new epiphany we will be that much closer to regaining our Nation, our Country.
An Op-Ed Contributor to the New York Times published yesterday, Sept 10, 2012, this article, The Deafness Before the Storm by Kurt Eichenwald. Mr. Eichenwald shows how the Bush administration ignored the warnings of an imminent al-Qaeda attack! The reason, the al-Qaeda attack was to be the perfect cover for their intention of bringing down the Twin Towers and building 7. Dick Cheney had been put in charge of Norad, the first time that position was ever held by a non-military individual. This is just the tip of the iceberg and I am not going to outline all the volumes of evidence here, but I will ask just a couple of common sense questions. The REAL al-Qaeda terrorists and the other terrorists with their different affiliations, we’ve seen how well they accomplish their goals, in fact, a real terrorist (they are all terrorists, domestic or foreign) set off a bomb in one of the twin towers in 1993, the story is here, the explosives were made with chemical fertilizer, although there was about five floors damaged, the tower did not fall. Then you have the bumbling terrorists with the bombs in the underwear, shoes and the like. This is the type of expertise people from that part of the world possess. They live in caves, antiquated houses, electricity is a luxury, do you really think that these people are capable of orchestrating an elaborate attack such as occurred on the Twin Towers? The second questioned is, how many times can you clap your hands together in ten seconds? The approximate length of time it took the Towers to free fall to the ground. Unless you can clap them together 110 times in ten seconds you can’t prove anything else other than a controlled demolition brought down the towers. It’s the law of physics.
Our, wait, no it’s NOT our government, it’s their government, would have you believe the most preposterous of all claims.
God Bless all the innocents who have died and may the real culprits of this terrible deed, one day, be punished.
In an historic move, at their National Convention, the GOP acknowledges that is was and is the party that is responsible for the National Debt, referring to the years of the George Bush, Cheney Administration. Citing the fact that Bush took office when there was no National Debt and there was a surplus of over 10 billion dollars in the government coffers. It took George Bush and Cheney under six years to turn that National Surplus into a multi-trillion dollar deficit!
The GOP feels that just because it wants to restore the same policy of George Bush, the policy that set the wheels in motion, it is no reason not to vote for them. In fact, their guest speaker, “make my day”, Clint Eastwood, who candidly, expressed the American public view of the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, in a dialogue with an empty chair that represented President Obama and the American people. In that dialogue, when the President and the American people told Clint to tell the Republican candidate to “go frack himself”, Mr. Eastwood told the President and the American public, that that was a physical impossibility.

TAMPA — Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul will use his prime-time speaking slot at the Republican National Convention to urge party members to be more open to scrutinizing military spending, a position that puts him in the minority within the GOP.
Paul made the remarks Sunday when he addressed thousands of supporters at a rally for his father, former Republican presidential candidate and Texas Rep. Ron Paul, at the University of South Florida.
"Because we’ve talked about audit the Fed so much, we’re now talking about audit the Pentagon," Paul told the crowd. "Now, because of Hurricane Isaac, it’s not sure whether my message will get to the Republican National Convention, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to be able speak. And one of the messages that I will give to them is that Republicans need to acknowledge that not every dollar is well spent or sacred in the military and we have to look for ways to make every department accountable."
Paul will speak at the convention between 7:00 and 8:00 PM eastern time Tuesday, according to an updated schedule made public Sunday.
Both Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, have vowed to increase defense spending if elected.
Since GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney picked Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his running mate, seems all we’ve been hearing about is Medicare and its future.
No surprise, of course: Ryan is the author of the GOP budget plan that would dramatically remake how the health care insurance program for seniors is managed and funded. He also calls for big changes to Medicaid, the insurance program for the poor, including elderly Americans who have exhausted their means.
President Obama’s health care overhaul legislation also has significant changes in store for Medicare to secure estimated savings of $716 billion over the next decade. And the legislation calls for a broad expansion of Medicaid.
And Romney? He has sort of embraced Ryan’s plans, calling their proposals "the same, if not identical." He has, however, distanced himself from a part of Ryan’s plan: the part that finds Medicare savings over time equal to those embedded in Obama’s health care law — $716 billion.
Here’s a look at the programs the candidates are selling and their different paths toward reining in the massively expensive and rapidly expanding programs.
What Is Medicare?
It’s the federal health insurance system for people age 65 or older, certain younger people with disabilities, and people with permanent kidney failure that requires dialysis or a transplant. The system has 47.6 million beneficiaries; in 2009, 9.3 million of those beneficiaries were also eligible for Medicaid.
In 2011, Medicare cost the federal government $551 billion. It has four parts:
Part A: Hospital insurance that covers inpatient hospital care, as well as skilled nursing facility, hospice and home health care.
Part B: Medical insurance that helps cover the cost of health care provider services, outpatient care, durable medical equipment, home health care and some preventive services.
Part C: Known as Medicare Advantage, it offers, along with coverage under Part A and Part B, additional health plan options provided by private insurance companies, as well as prescription drug coverage under Part D.
Part D: Coverage that helps pay for prescription drug costs, run by Medicare-approved private insurance companies.
Why do we keep hearing the amount $716 billion?
That number has become the focus of debate about whose Medicare plan would do what in terms of saving money and/or cutting services. It comes from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. The CBO has estimated that if Obama’s health care law is repealed, as advocated by Ryan and Romney, Medicare spending would increase by $716 billion between 2013 and 2022.
What are the differences between what Ryan and Romney have proposed, and what’s in Obama’s health care law?
Obama: The president’s health care law preserves the current Medicare system of guaranteed benefits, and closes the prescription drug "doughnut hole" coverage gap that affects some senior citizens.
The Obama campaign characterizes the law’s $716 billion as savings largely realized by slowing the program’s growth with a decade of agreed-to reductions in hospital, private insurance and drug company reimbursement rates; and cutting reimbursements to private Medicare Advantage plans. The private-market Advantage plans were intended to manage or lower the cost of insuring senior citizens through market competition; they ultimately cost more on average than the standard Medicare plan.
Obama has asserted that projected savings embedded in the health care law plan would keep Medicare trust fund solvent until 2024; however the legislation uses savings to subsidize health insurance for younger people.
Romney: His campaign’s most recent statement on the issue read like this, as reported by NBC News: "A Romney-Ryan administration will restore the funding to Medicare, ensure that no changes are made to the program for those 55 or older, and implement the reforms that they have proposed to strengthen it for future generations." Romney has, in the past, supported Ryan’s plan.
Ryan: Ryan has proposed a system that would go into effect when people now age 55 and younger hit retirement age.
For those future senior citizens, Ryan has proposed to remake the current system that provides a guarantee of benefits. Under his plan, the government would issue credit vouchers to eligible recipients. They would purchase their own insurance, using the vouchers to defray the cost.
The CBO has estimated that changes proposed in the Ryan plan could push up out-of-pocket insurance costs for an average senior citizen by $6,400; advocates of the plan argue that market forces will drive down insurance costs. Rest of story here…
Without that bailout, Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself. With it, the automakers will stay the course — the suicidal course of declining market shares, insurmountable labor and retiree burdens, technology atrophy, product inferiority and never-ending job losses. Detroit needs a turnaround, not a check.
