America and Virginia are in the Same Boat

It has become most certain to me that many Americans have no idea what is going on in Washington, D.C., or in the respective political parties. Anyone with commonsense can see that America has suffered under a increasingly oppressive leadership bolstered by a multitude of power hungry, greedy, and egotistical representatives. Morals and personal responsibilities have suffered. Once lucid and understanding of the issues that must be addressed in this country, these people have been perverted by special interests groups such as environmentalists and union bosses, promises from the old guard, long-termed representatives of important committee assignments, and financial supports for their future campaigns to be re-elected.
Nothing, yes, nothing is further from their minds than the interests, lives, and financial survival of their constituents. They have duped their supporters with false promises, spinning the issues, and blinding rhetoric to confuse yet make their supporters feel they care…


Now, Understand that when the producers are unable to produce anymore, WHAT HAPPENS?
Really are you that ignorant not to understand the consequences??

Can Obama write his own laws? Saturday, August 17, 2013, THE WASHINGTON POST.

By , Published: August 15 As a reaction to the crack epidemic of the 1980s, many federal drug laws carry strict mandatory sentences. This has stirred unease in Congress and sparked a bipartisan effort to revise and relax some of the more draconian laws.
Traditionally — meaning before Barack Obama — that’s how laws were changed: We have a problem, we hold hearings, we find some new arrangement ratified by Congress and signed by the president.
That was then. On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder, a liberal in a hurry, ordered all U.S. attorneys to simply stop charging nonviolent, non-gang-related drug defendants…

Clueless or Devilish?

ObamaCare: The Emperor Has No Clue By Marilyn Singleton, MD, JD
When President Obama hawks the wonders of the misnamed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, I’m reminded of those “As Seen on TV” products.
True believers ridiculed critics of the Independent Payment Advisory Board and its unchecked power to ration health care. They were impressed by the $575 billion cut to Medicare, although lower payments lead physicians to accept fewer Medicare patients. They cheered because 11 million Americans will be added to the Medicaid rolls over the next ten years. While Medicaid looks like is a good deal with its low co-pays, provider payments are so low that only one-third of physicians accept new Medicaid patients.
True believers scoffed at claims of loss of privacy. After the NSA snooping revelations, a Pew survey revealed that 70 percent of Americans believe the government is using data for purposes other than fighting terrorism. Not only could unethical employees misuse health and financ…

We Don't Need Obamacare

The U.S. Health Care System Can Be Fixed Without ObamaCare August 12, 2013
"The U.S. health care system suffers from three structural flaws. First, it artificially inflates health insurance premiums for the healthy in an attempt to lower premiums for the sick. This encourages healthy individuals to reduce their insurance coverage or even exit the market entirely, driving up costs for everyone. Mandates to purchase insurance and penalties for lack of insurance can serve as cosmetic solutions, but they cannot erase this fundamental problem. Second, by relying heavily on open-ended fee-for-service public insurance, the present system rewards costlier high-volume care rather than higher-quality care. Third, the poor are funneled into a Medicaid system with reimbursement levels well below those of private payers. This relegates the most vulnerable groups in America to a separate and unequal health care system with more limited access and worse outcomes, say Tomas J. Phi…
Is Common Sense Dead?
While deciding what to write about this week, I thought of how common sense seems to be absent in much of today's life. When you hear such silly and inane statements such as, “you'll have to pass the bill to see what's in it" or “go outside and shoot a shotgun twice in the air,” I begin to wonder if common sense will ever be a part of life again. From Thomas Payne to today, many people have written on the subject. Some from a purely intellectual view point and others from a purely “tongue in cheek” attitude.
Either way, the authors are concerned about the loss of common sense that seems to be quite pervasive in our world today. Common Sense is defined as “sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts.” The key here is the word “simple,” meaning “readily understood.”
I suspect “common sense” could be conceived as understanding a situation or facts, their consequences, and acting or responding reasonably to them in …
Are You Apathetic?
Apathy is defined as is a state of indifference, or the suppression of emotions such as concern, excitement, motivation or passion. An apathetic individual an have an absence of interest in or concern about just everything in his life from the emotional to physical. Today, I would also add the absence of interest in “politics” and “what is going on beyond one's own sphere of self.”
What is so incredible about this country is the men who founded it and spent their lives and fortunes writing the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. It is the passion they had, the interest they had, and the concern they had for the United States of America. I believe they felt what they had done would be honored and revered by all who followed them. I'm sure they didn't think that there would ever be those who wouldn 't really care about America, what was happening around them, and what was going on that really affected them personally.
Sadly, there are many …
