BETTER AMERICAN HEALTH CARE APPLYING THE FREE MARKET CONCEPT

Friday, March 30th, 2012

There is one thing that the American government could easily do that would stop the runaway exorbitant rising health care costs and improve health care for the American people.

The Federal government would built a huge medical training program, with Federal hospitals and Federal medical schools in every State, that would produce many, many highly quality physicians to ply their trade; then the famous open and free market that Republicans and the top wealthiest 1% talk about, would take effect.  To compete for patients, fees, and income, the physicians would have to charge lower competitive fees.

This would also put an end to the immigrating of  foreign physicians, coming to America for higher fees and personal income.

Viola, lower health costs and better health care. Ain’t capitalism grand!

This grand idea for providing better health care for Americans was actually proposed in the sixties, but the American Medical Association lobby shot it down; they opposed having competition among doctors.

COMMENTARY ON TODAY’S NEWS: 3/29/12

Friday, March 30th, 2012

This is a reply to a comment in Huffington Post (3/29/12) asking why one of the five John Birch Society Republican Supreme Court Justices asked why he should do the work of reading the bulky Obamacare Statute to judge it?

Republicans have never had to work because they are Republicans and committed to having others to do their work for them for the smallest possible wages; they are anti-labor, anti-working-Middle-Class, anti-Public Schools and blame the poor and labor for all their misery.  They are like Princes of the holy Christian church: immune to work and convinced they are destined for Sainthood for exposing the sins of the lowly working Middle Class and Democrats.  Note the Republican appointed John Birch Society Justices of today’s US Supreme Court (Bush vs. Gore and Citizens United).

 

Former Republican Presidential Candidate, Herman Cain, said that the threat of the Black Panthers is more important than the murder of Trayvon Martin (Huffington Post 3/29/12)

My response is that if I had to choose which was a grater threat to me, the Black Panthers or the John Birch Society Herman Cains, I would have to say that John Bircher Herman Cains are the greater threat.

I made that decision after considering what the purpose is for the John Birch Society and what the purpose is for the Black Panthers.  Even though I am a White male, I have done nothing to irritate, upset, or threaten the Black Panthers but the John Birch Society Herman Cains hates my guts and my democratic values.  Herman Cain has reason to be scared of the Black Panthers, I do not.

Does this sound strange?  Unfortunately it is true.

WHY ARE POLITICIANS NOT VETTED FOR ANTI-DEMOCRACY, JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY IDEOLOGY

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Here is a question for America’s media news reporters; why are not all political candidate vetted by the News Media for John Birch Society, anti-democracy ideology?  Are investigating reporter afraid?  They do have reasons of course.

Why wasn’t President W. Bush vetted for anti-democracy, John Birch ideology; President Bush (Junior) never used the word democracy to describe America to my knowledge and he never used the word democracy in speeches or press conferences until there were no weapons of mass destruction found in Iraq; then in one State of the Union Speech he said that he wanted to make Iraq, a “democracy”.  He STUMBLED over the word, democracy.  President Junior Bush used the word “freedom” a lot but not the word, democracy.   What did President W. Bush believe; someone ask, please.

That is typical John Birch Society; the JBS believes that democracy is a fraud and mob rule (their words).

This is found in the John Birch Society Bluebook p.124 “And democracy, of course, as the Greeks and Romans both found out… is merely a deceptive phrase, a weapon of demagoguery, and a perennial fraud.”

(Continued in Footnote 25, p. 136.)   “Our liberal critics would have you believe that his statement, for an American is practically heresy.  This is because these same Liberals have been working so long and so hard to convert our republic into a democracy, and to make the American people believe that it is supposed to be a democracy.  Nothing could be further from the truth than that insidiously planted premise.  Our founding fathers knew a great deal about history and government, and they had very nearly a clean slate on which to write the blueprint for our own.  They gave us a republic because they considered it the best of all forms of government.  They visibly spurned a democracy as probably the worst of all forms of government.  But our past history and our present danger indicates that they were right in both particular.”

Of course, politically a democracy and a Republic are apples and oranges.  A Republic simply means, representative government; democracy means a government where all citizens vote, majority rules, and liberty exists; liberty is the key and it is liberty that protects the minorities from the tyranny of the majority. Democracy of course, exists to degree; there are no pure democracies.

Of course, it is possible to have a plutocratic oligarchy Republic which the JBS imply America was intended to be; that would be a Republic where only the wealthy and influential elite vote and make decisions.

The John Birch Society believes in absolute freedom; however, the American democratic Republic and the US Constitution provides Americans “liberty”, which in a democracy, is freedom to the extent that you do not infringe upon the rights of others.  American liberty (the Bill of Rights) is essential to protect American minorities from the tyranny of the majority.

Listen to today’s Republican Presidential candidates of 2012; they talk extensively about THEIR freedom but not about liberty or democracy or the freedom of people who disagree with them.  Often, today’s candidates actually speak of their freedom to deny others of their freedom.

Why has no reporter ever confronted a politician with the question, simply put, “Do you believe that America was intended to be a democracy and is America a democracy?”

And, “Do you believe that your American Bill of Rights restricts the freedom of Americans so to not deny the freedom of any other Americans.”

Politicians running for office in America should easily handle such questions, honestly or not!

Unfortunately, Americans go to the polls without knowing what these candidates really believe; truthfully, candidates have NEVER been asked.  A good example today is the political milieu in the State of Wisconsin and Gov. Walker’s attempt to eliminate democratic recall elections, destroy the public schools, and eliminate labor unions and collective bargaining.

Why doesn’t the press vet politicians about John Birch ideology?

ELECTION 2012; WHO RULES IN AMERICA?

Friday, March 16th, 2012

The American democratic Republic question:

Do American voters elect their President and Legislators, or, do American Corporate contributions and the American media select the American President and Legislators?

Who rules in America?

God save the State!

2012 REPUBLICANS ARE MINDLESS DRONES WITH A PRURIENT INTEREST

Friday, March 16th, 2012

American people listen:

Marriage Law in the American democratic Republic IS NOT RELIGIOUS IN ANY SENSE; IT IS ABOUT A LEGAL CONTRACT.  THE US CONSTITUTION’S FIRST AMENDMENT SEPARATES THE CHURCH FROM THE STATE.

NO ONE HAS THEIR RIGHTS DENIED IF SOME OTHER CITIZEN MARRIES A CITIZEN OF THE SAME GENDER OR IF HE LOVES HIS HORSE AND MARRIES HIS HORSE.

No ones rights are abridged if SOME OTHER CITIZEN USES CONTRACEPTIVES OR HAS AN ABORTION; NO ONE IS REQUIRED TO USE CONTRACEPTIVES OR HAVE AN ABORTION

Republicans have made the 2012 Presidential election a vaginal circus; the entire world is laughing at the sexual stupidity of the American people.  Babies DO NOT come from the American government; babies come from their mother’s body.

Republicans have become mindless drones with a prurient interest.

The Catholic Princes of the Church believe that Jesus Christ believed that sex was dirty, bearing children was a sporting event, and Jesus never had the pleasure of an erection; the US Constitution gives Catholic Bishops the right to believe that but not to legislate it.

All of this makes one wonder if some terrorists has contaminated Republican drinking water with stupidity drugs!

AFGHANISTAN WAR ATROCITIES AND WHICH AMERICANS ARE RESPONSIBLE

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Yesterday, an American Army Sergeant in Afghanistan went berserk going house to house killing 16 Afghan civilians, mostly women and children.

“The slayings, the worst atrocity committed by U.S. forces during the Afghan war. . .”

Huffington Post, “U.S. Soldier Opens Fire On Civilians In Afghanistan”, 3/11/12

It was not the worse atrocity of the Afghan war; what was much worse was the American B-52 “Carpet Bombing” (American’s own words) of Afghanistan in 2001, using incendiary bombs and “cluster” anti-personnel bombs which prompted VP Cheney to admit there were no military targets in already war-torn an devastated Afghanistan and it was a “waste” of bombs.

The Afghan War itself was an atrocity; an atrocity likened to bin Laden’s.

Atrocities in Afghanistan cannot be blamed on American troops; American troops have no choice in what wars they fight or who they kill. Soldiers follow orders of their Commander-in-Chief; “the buck stops there”.

President Obama has assumed that responsibility; he immediately made apologies to Afghanistan, the Afghan people, and the survivors of the victims of the most recent atrocity of war.  How empty an apology for an atrocity seems.  How lame the President must feel; how lame we Americans must feel.

WE NOW KNOW it was not necessary to invade Afghanistan; bin Laden wasn’t there, neither was bin Laden the responsibility of the sovereign nation of Afghanistan, nor was Iraq’s Saddam responsible for 911, nor did Saddam have weapons-of-mass-destruction that was an imminent threat to America.  The  Iraq war is yet another American atrocity.

Every American soldier must pledge to obey their Commander-in-Chief

Soldiers are specifically trained to be professional killers; it’s a necessity for national defense.
Killing is not what American soldiers would choose to do and their proficiency at killing other human beings takes a toll, innocently called PTS or “Post Trauma Stress”. PTS is epidemic among combat veterans.
PTS is no excuse for committing atrocities, it’s simply a cause of atrocity and there’s no cure for PTS.
When American combat war veterans morph into monsters, who is to blame?  Explain it to Afghans.

Without a doubt, America’s war-hawk politicians need to explain America’s Wars of the 21st Century and the atrocities thereof.

Americans individually have a responsibility, too; they need to write and inform their President and their Legislators and tell them that they want America out of Afghanistan and Iraq, NOW!  Stop the atrocities.

ROMNEY PREFERS FREEDOM OF BUSINESS IN CHINA TO AMERICAN LIBERTY

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

Mitt Romney, “I want freedom to reign forever in this country.”  Romney praises the freedom that business and industry have in China compared to the freedom business has in America. (“Mitt Romney Praises Chinese Regulators” Huffington Post 3/9/12)

Romney does not seem to understand that in America, we treasure our “liberty”, which is not absolute freedom but instead freedom to the extent one citizen’s freedom does not infringe upon the freedom of others.  American Constitutional liberty is to protect the rights of a MINORITY FROM THE TYRANNY OF THE MAJORITY.

In America, business and industry does not have the freedom to gouge the consumer and deny the consumer’s right to equal treatment under the law.

The concept of capitalism in America was intended to be the right of a citizen to profit from his own initiative and creativity and provide a quality product or service for consumers.

However today, American capitalism appears to be freedom of a corporation to go into business for the sole purpose of making a profit and has nothing to do with providing consumers a quality product or service but instead provide consumers with the cheapest quality product or service possible to provide the greatest profit.

Romney would be better suited to run for the Chinese Presidency, where the government is not concerned about the toxic quality of a Chinese product.

THE OIL ELECTION OF 2012: GASOLINE, OIL, ROMNEY, AND “WHOSE ON FIRST”

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

The politics of oil is quite interesting.  As for the price of oil, the price  is driven by whatever the oil cartel decides to charge because the people of the world, and especially Americans, have NO ALTERNATIVE.

The concept that a shortage- of-oil is driving the price of oil is a total laugh; when has your local filling station refused to fill your tank; that should tell you something.

Since the oil industry owes allegiance to the Republican Party for its sacred oil subsidies (?) and Republicans depend on campaign contributions from the oil industry, Republicans more than anyone else control the price of oil.

Mitt Romney’s charges that President Obama is to blame for high gas prices is utterly ridiculous.  As the President has said, he is trying to get re-elected and it is not to his advantage for the price of gasoline to be so high.  It would appear that Mitt Romney could attest to that; actually, he just did, didn’t he.

So, Mitt Romney says President Obama is to blame for high gasoline prices. In my mind, if President Obama is to blame for the high price of gasoline, it is because the Republicans are responsible for the price of gasoline to be so high for the explicit PURPOSE OF DEFEATING PRESIDENT OBAMA IN 2012!

Holy crap!

Politicians make no sense at all; how can Americans ever take democratic elections seriously?  Yet, oh so serious democratic elections really are.

America has thousands of oil wells that are capped and not pumping; the oil is not being pumped because oil companies are making record high profits today (look it up) and thus it is not to their advantage to pump the oil.

No matter how many new oil wells are drilled in America, the price of that oil is going to be same price as any other oil from any other nation and whatever the oil cartel decides to charge.

America became an automotive addicted society in the 20th Century.  From that time on, the auto and the oil industry has greatly controlled America’s economy; they can determine the outcome of  elections, they can elect presidents according to Mitt Romney, they have opposed and eliminated efficient and effective public transportation and still do, and they alone control gas and oil prices.

America is addicted to autos and oil; Americans and American voters are oil junkies.

REV. PAT ROBERTSON CALLS SANDRA FLUKE A FORNICATOR AND SAYS LIMBAUGH’S SLUT AND PROSTITUTE WENT OVER THE TOP???

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

“Televangelist Pat Robertson addressed Sandra Fluke’s “fornication” and said that “Rush Limbaugh got a little bit over the top” when he referred to Fluke as a “slut” and a “prostitute.”  Huffington Post 3/7/12

I contend Huff Post scraped-the-bottom when they chose to use so much ink about what Pat Robertson said.

What does Robertson actually know about Sandra Fluke’s “fornication” or anyone’s fornication; does Robertson believe he is omniscient?

Never have I heard a woman say she needed contraception to “fornicate”; however, women obviously need contraception for their own welfare, health and other purposes.

And face it, the income of women is below the level of income of men, that’s a fact, and men are the reason women need contraception, and men are the reason that women are least able to afford contraception. This is insanity.

Women contend they need access to contraception; Rush Limbaugh, Rev. Pat Roberson, and Catholic Bishops contend religious male employers should not have to include contraception in women’s health plans IF a male employer believes it’s a sin for women to have access to contraception.  Oh my God, help me to explain ‘men’ to my precious daughters.

Robertson’s contention is that the religious beliefs of men are more important than the Constitutional rights and the health of women.

Holy crap!

When it comes to intelligence and/or compassion, Robertson is lacking in both and he makes Christianity look bad.

Robertson even blames God for tornadoes; what kind of theologian is that? Robertson’s God is sure a mean sob.

CATHOLIC PRINCE OF THE CHURCH ENCOURAGES FOLLOWER TO ACT POLITICALLY TO DENY ACCESS TO CONTRACEPTION

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

“Cardinal Timothy Dolan called on Roman Catholic worshippers Saturday to become more involved in politics as the church stands against the government in what he called a ‘freedom of religion battle,’ as he spoke about the recent controversy involving contraceptive coverage.”

Doland is a Prince of the Church; that gives him no special rights in the American democratic Republic.  The constitutions states, “No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States and no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust. under them, shall, without the consent of Congress accept any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind, whatsoever, from any King, prince, or foreign State”

The US Constitution First Amendment reads, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” which clearly establishes the separation of church and state.  Dolan misinterprets the Constitution to give Catholics the freedom to deprive non-Catholics access to contraception.

Dolan owes non-Catholic Americans an apology.

Dolan also calls for Catholics to “become more involved in politics as the church stands against the government”; this sounds more like sedition that religion.  If the Catholic Church is political, perhaps the government should eliminate the Catholic Church’s tax exemption as a religious entity.

I do not believe that Dolan is expressing the beliefs or politics of my Catholic friends and acquaintances.
