Ryancare Will Prey on Disabled!

It appears that Speaker Paul Ryan’s health insurance alternative to Obamacare will prey on some of our least powerful citizens, the disabled!  And that is nothing short of OUTRAGEOUS and, frankly, IMO warrants Ryan being removed from Congress via recall by his constituents!

obamacare

Rather than giving states block grants for Medicaid, Ryan wants to put a cap on everyone on Medicaid and once one reaches that cap I guess you get no more medical care.  You know I cannot help but think that Ryan’s entire proposal is some kind of REALLY SICK JOKE!  Ryan has now proved to me that not only is he a RINO but he is also a PREDATOR! He should not withdraw his proposal and resign from office in disgrace.

Not only would such a cap negatively affect the disabled but it would also be traumatic to children and the elderly.  The Congressional Budget Office announced that 14 million Americans would lose healthcare under Ryan’s plan in 2018 and another 1 million would be forced to buy expensive health insurance.  Ryan’s plan is NOT THE RIGHT PLAN!  His is a plan that preys upon the disabled, children, the elderly, and the poor!  I am astounded that Paul Ryan even submitted something like this.  I thought he was a different kind of man.  One who actually cares for the less fortunate in our society.  I now see clearly HE IS NOT.

Ryan’s Obamacare Lite is a Corporatist Fleecing of America!

House Speaker Paul Ryan finally revealed his “ObamaCare Lite” aka the American Health Care Act and what an absolute FARCE it is. I can see why he held the bill in a secure location because what it is, is a “healthcare” bill that fleeces America and enriches the Insurance Corporations (read Corporatist). Frankly, at this point I think Congress should ax Obamacare and replace it with nothing because obviously the people in Congress are far to incompetent to come up with a sensible replacement!

It’s no secret that Speaker Paul Ryan is a RINO in much the same fashion of that other RINO known as Senator John McCain R-AZ. That explains the almost constant little smirk Ryan has on his face and he’s obviously smirking at We The People. Never thought I’d say this but I’d rather have Nancy Pelosi back as the House Speaker.

Ryan’s plan would increase penalties for not having health insurance for 63 days to an astounding 30% of your monthly premium! The Act would only serve to enrich the insurance companies and we shouldn’t expect anything different as the health insurance companies already own many in Congress! We like to think we have a “do nothing Congress” and when it comes to representing the American people WE DO. But, not when it comes to the corporations! That is who these WORTHLESS people in Congress represent and since President Trump wants to “drain the swamp” why doesn’t he start with Congress?

Right now Obamacare via the IRS imposes penalties based on income for people who don’t have health insurance for more than 3 months. Ryan’s plan bases that penalty on your monthly premium which are typically adjusted by age which translates to Ryan’s plan being cheaper for younger people and far more expensive for older Americans. And it is older Americans who need health insurance the most. People on FIXED INCOMES! Continue reading

Male…Female…Whatever…..

commentary by Monomakh —

The mistaken belief that male and female brains are the same is a nice Utopian idea but the scientific facts and findings DO NOT support the notion. In fact, there have been numerous scientific studies done that prove how the prenatal testosterone affects the developing male brain in the womb. A recent study published their results in the scientific journal “Nature” and that study found testosterone in the womb alters the “programming” of neural stem cells responsible for growth of the brain and gender differences.

Gender feminists allege that a child is born as a “blank slat” at birth and that it’s perceptions are formed by society and parents as the child grows up. In psychology this is known as the “Blank Slate Theory” or “Tabula Rasa” developed by John Locke a philosopher who postulate that the human brain is empty at birth. It can be traced back to the Greek philosopher Aristotle. Supporters of this theory typically use results of a 2015 study which claimed that it is impossible to tell males and females apart in terms of the brain. However, when this study was reanalyzed they discovered male and female brains COULD be identified with a 77% accuracy rate in terms of differences! In yet another study last years researchers used a large sample population along with higher neuro-imaging and participants were able to identify the sex of the brain with 93% accuracy.

Other studies have repeatedly shown that there are differences between males and females in a wide range of cognitive domains including mental rotation, verbal fluency, etc.

Many advocates of transgender rights ignore these studies and claim there is no difference between males and females in terms of the brain but that claim has repeatedly NOT been supported by numerous scientific studies that has shown beyond doubt that differences do exist. No matter how much one wishes to believe there are no differences and that one is born with the mind being a “blank slate” the science does not support the notion and, in fact, proves that just the opposite is true.

In relation to this issue I wish to also address the issue of youth undergoing transgender therapy. How young are we talking here? Does anyone know? I asked this because a few days ago someone told me that children as young as 5 can undergo transgender therapy if the parents are agreeable. If this is so then I must ask the question….Does a 5 year old have the mental capacity to make the decision to alter their gender? Does a 10 year old? Does a 14 year old? I’m sorry but children DO NOT have the same mental capacity and ability to understand as adults! And what happens when that 5 year old enters their teens and resents being altered? What then? Whose fault is it?

Supporters of this like to say that we are each “assigned” a gender when we are born by a doctor upon delivery but it doesn’t mean that’s what we are. Say what? I’m pretty sure if you are born with a penis you are born a male and if with a vagina then a female! This hearkens back to the idea that some people of one sex are born in the wrong sex body. Frankly, I’m not so sure about that.

I can certainly see why some people on this planet view the West including America as nations of “infidels” because in their minds we are opening and proudly fighting against the natural. Somehow in our own minds we think it is all ok but is it? Really? One thing I know is that every time humans try to defy nature no matter how long it takes NATURE typically comes out as the WINNER and humans as the LOSERS. I have a strong suspicion that this will also be the case here.

If a young person is a young adult and have the ability to make an informed decision to change their gender then go for it. But children, especially small children, I think is just plain wrong. Changing one’s gender is not something to be taken lightly and it must be taken seriously. It must be an informed adult decision in my opinion.

Of course I know some of you out there are thinking I just don’t understand the surrounding issues over all this such as bullying. Yes, bullying can be a very cruel thing for youths and children and I have no doubt about that. However, when I went to school our parents solution to a bully was to teach us to KICK HIS ASS! And that is exactly what many of us did and guess what? The bully wasn’t so big and bad after that! Maybe we need to go back to that because bullies seem not to have any respect for rules and laws but only respect it when someone stands up to them and kicks their ass!! Then MOST bullies leave you alone.

We live in a lost society in America and I have no doubt that someday, somehow we are all going to pay the price in some very big ways. On a society level we have made some very poor choices. Life is about choices and with those choices come consequences good or bad. Contrary to what we might think we ALWAYS pay the consequences sooner or later.

There are some things that must be adult choices and decisions.  Some things that most children do not have the mental capacity to decide.  We should look closely at this difference in adult/child capacity and perhaps make other choices.

End of the Obama Era

Political Commentary by Viktor Sukov

The end of the Obama era is now drawing to a close and all I can say is Thank God for that. The past 8 years of his presidency have been a complete disaster for our country, for our people, and for the entire world. And Thank God Hillary Clinton didn’t win the election as we would have 4 more years of Obama’s “doctrines” which are a joke to say the least.

No!  No!  I won't go!  This is my public housing home and they'll have to drag me out!  Why am I being forced out of the WH???

In the past 8 years we’ve seen our country reduced to almost a third world nation economically. We’ve seen attempt after attempt by the Obama administration to reduce the most sophisticated and powerful military on the planet to rubble. We’ve been played like fools and we’ve been repeatedly lied to that make one’s head swim. Instead of being a great unifier Barack Obama has turned out to be the Great Divider and he and his administration have divided our nation in ways that were once unimaginable. When it comes to Black Americans, Barack Obama hasn’t done one damned thing for them over the past 8 years and the fact is Black Americans are no better than off than they were 8 years ago and possibly even worse off. That’s a really sad legacy for America’s first “black” POTUS (remember he’s half black and half white).

Obama’s signature piece accomplishment has been the Affordable Healthcare Act aka Obamacare. He touted it as something that would reduce the high costs of medical care and assured us that for the first time in American history healthcare would be affordable to all. Not long ago people got their notices from their health insurance providers and those notices sent most people into a state of SHOCK as they were informed their monthly premiums were going up over 100%! Affordable? It now appears there is NOTHING AFFORDABLE about Obamacare. Continue reading

Does Hillary Have a Seizure Disorder?

Before I begin I want to say that I’ve been in the background listening to all of the “conspiracy theory” about the health of Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and, frankly, I’ve passed most of it off as CRAP. Coughing spells that she allegedly has, and apparently she does, could be due to sinus or allergy issues and nothing more. But, apparently there is MORE than this and I must say sadly.

hillary_seizure

The Drudge Report and The Gateway Pundit are reporting on the “mysterious” big black guy who is obviously part of Clinton’s staff or detail. No one seems to know who this guy is and he appears NOT to be a Secret Service agent. Well he may or may not be because in the video appearing on The Gateway Pundit after he comes up on stage with Hillary he pats her on the back repeatedly and then directs SS agents off the stage. Apparently he has some kind of authority or they wouldn’t listen to him. But that’s not the odd thing……….

This mystery man appears to carry a Diazepam Pen and is ready to inject Clinton with it at a moments notice (see pics). Diazepam is a medication used to treat alcohol withdraw symptoms, anxiety disorders, and seizure disorders. I don’t think Hillary has an anxiety disorder nor to I think she has alcohol withdraw symptoms. BUT what I DO think she has is a SEIZURE DISORDER and the Diazepam Pen fits perfectly into that suspicion along with the mystery man who is most likely a physician or nurse.

Remember while serving as Secretary of State Clinton had a fall and suffered from a concussion. Subsequently, a blood clot in the brain was diagnosed and she was treated for that and that treatment apparently included the wearing of prism glasses which are commonly used to help treat a brain injury when the patient is suffering from double vision. She wore them at the Behghazi Hearings if you recall. Continue reading

Carter Reveals He Has Brain Cancer!

Former US President Jimmy Carter in a closed news conference today revealed that he has several cancer spots on his brain.  Carter had liver surgery recently and said that doctors discovered the cancer had spread to other parts of his body.  Today he revealed that the cancer has spread to his brain, sadly.

This afternoon he will begin radiation treatments for the multiple melanoma spots on his brain, Carter told the audience at the Carter Center.  Carter also said he would cut back on his activities with the Carter Center.  Carter appeared at the conference with family and friends including his wife, former First Lady Rosalyn Carter.

Carter said at first he thought the cancer was confined to his liver but on the same day as doctors operated on his liver to remove the cancer he underwent an MRI that revealed the cancer was also in his brain.  Carter said when doctors removed the cancer from his liver he thought it was completely removed so he was “relieved.”  However, when the MRI revealed cancer also in his brain Carter said, I thought I had a few weeks left, but I was surprisingly at ease.”

Carter is 90 years old and served as POTUS before beaten in a second term bid by Ronald Reagan.  Carter’s tenure in office saw several foreign policy crises including the taking of American hostage in Iran at the US embassy.  It wasn’t until Reagan took over as POTUS that the hostages were released by Iran’s radical Ayatollah Khomeni who ousted the Shah of Iran, Reza Pahlavi.

Since leaving the White House, Carter has been involved in numerous humanitarian efforts including building homes for the poor and monitoring elections in various nations around the planet.  He has authored books and also appeared for public speaking at several events.

As President, Carter was accused of being to soft when it came to dealing with Iran and trying to secure the release of US hostages.  Many Americans thought Carter should be in the pulpit at the time, not in the White House.  True Carter has always been very involved in his Baptist Church and he still teaches Sunday School which he still plans to do this coming Sunday.  Many Americans thought the radical Ayatollahs in Iran simply did not take Carter seriously and they considered him to weak to wage any military action against Iran to secure release of the hostages.  Carter made a bid for a second term and was defeated by Ronald Reagan significantly as Americans saw Reagan better equipped to deal with the aggressive Iran.

Whether you agree with his politics or not I think everyone will admit that Carter is a good man.  Perhaps he’s one of those men who are just to good to a fault.  Carter is also remembered for being a very kind president and people who met him in person were struck by his kindness.  There’s nothing wrong with being kind but sometimes it becomes a fault as it did in the case with Iran’s aggressive and radical Ayatollahs.

Carter said today at the end of the conference “I’ve had a wonderful life,” and indeed he has.  Carter has lived out his values without compromising them in public life and private life.  The prognosis for brain cancer is usually not good, sadly.  Radiation treatments will take their toll on the 90 year old as they do on others fighting cancer.  Carter was very composed at the conference this morning and it appears that he’s come to terms with his cancer and fate.

 

Pope Calls for Global REVOLUTION!!

Pope Francis has called for a global revolution to save and fix the earth and the global “perverse” economy!!  If you’re thinking he is calling for an armed revolt think again.  The Pope is calling for a global CULTURAL REVOLUTION in order to correct the world’s “structurally perverse” economic system by which the rich exploit the poor to no end and with the result being the wholesale turning of our planet into an “immense pile of filth.”  Amen to that!!

Pope Francis

Pope Francis

The Pope stated his position in the latest Papal Manifesto aimed at spurring that highly CORRUPT body known as the UN into taking action in the areas of climate change, domestic politics, and everyday life in general.  Regarding climate change the Pope blames it on an unfair, fossil fuel based industrial model that he says harms the poor the most.  In the manifesto he urges ALL PEOPLE of ALL FAITHS or NO faith to experience an awakening to save God’s creation for our future generations.

What the Pope’s Manifesto is, is essentially an indictment against the global Fascist Corporatists and those who like to claim there’s nothing wrong with our global climate.  Pope Francis said that half-way measures simply delay the looming disaster on a global scale.  He said we need to “redefine” our “notion of progress.”  The manifesto is the first Papal encyclical on the environment.  It is being hailed as a game changer in getting people to think about our impact on the environment and our global economic system which is nothing short of a system of exploitation of the poor and working classes.  Of course the Corporatist fossil fuel energy system was quick to criticize the manifesto saying that “energy is the essential building block of the modern world.”  Sadly, I think they’ve missed the point as usual. What is being called for is NOT the elimination of energy and the throwing back of the human race into the Stone Age but a revamping of what we use to produce energy such as changing from fossil fuels to energies like solar, water, wind, etc.  Also being called for is a redistribution of wealth and an end to the rich exploiting the poor and working classes at every turn.
