What does it mean to vote with your “lady parts”?

So for those of you who feel that voting for your “lady parts” is so important that you place that issue above all others, including the national security of this country, I want you to think about something.  If you watch some of the population control movies from the 60s and 70s, you will notice that it isn’t something just encouraged but that it is required.

I ask you to think about this.  What is to stop a country that is giving you free birth control at your desire, free sterilization as you may wish and free abortions as needed to change that to mandatory birth control, mandatory sterilization and mandatory abortions.

Two things to consider as you try to say to yourself that this is not possible.  Think about who created those movies that were set so far in the future in about the year 2000.  Are they the same who are supporting the idea of free birth control, sterilization and abortions now?  Then think of how the democrats seem to embrace many of the ideals of the Chinese government.  Perhaps, one of those many ideals is the government’s ability to control births.

Since you are basing your vote on protecting the right for women to choice, perhaps you may want to investigate and decide if you vote for “free stuff” that in the future the government may decide isn’t so much about choice but required choices?  It is your vote.  Since, choice is so important to you and it is the only issue you will use to determine how you vote, then I suggest you vote as if your freedom of choice depends on it, which means to say no thanks to the strings attached to the “free stuff” they have put out as bait.  Personally, I find the economy, national security more important and that is what I am basing my vote on.

Taxation without Representation

We learned those words at an early age.  We learned about the tea parties at an early age.  We all have the mental image of a bunch of men dressed as Indians throwing boxes off of a wooden ship.  But, did we ever really grasp what was going on that caused the men to feel like they had no choice but to revolt and to show their anger by doing this?  I don’t think so.

Even now, as I have embraced the Tea Party ideals, I never really got it.  I read something this weekend about the Stamp Tax that suddenly made things fall in place for me.  The Stamp Tax was a tax on paper.  It meant that every single piece of paper was taxed no matter what its use.  Think about even in this digital age how much paper we touch on a daily basis.  What if you had to pay a special tax (on top of every other tax) for that piece of paper.  Now think back to how much paper was used 30 years ago and if all that paper was taxed.  Don’t just think of paper as sheets of paper.  Think about newspapers, magazines, books and how about playing cards.  Yep, a special tax just on those type things.  As I read this, I realized that Obamatax is exactly the same as the Stamp Tax, except it is a special tax (on top of every other tax) on medical devices.  You know, crutches, prescription drugs, OTC drugs, Tampons, and even band aids.  Remember that the Director of Health and Human Services has the ultimate authority to decide what can be done in regards to Obamatax.  If the tax isn’t there now, it will be coming to you soon.  Because that is the other part of it.  The reason for the taxes are to support the overspending by the government.  As they say history repeats itself.  Look up why the Stamp Tax was needed by England if you don’t believe that.

A tax by any other name is still a tax

So now that the Supreme Court has ruled  that Obamacare is constitutional based on Congress’ ability to tax.  Now, Obama is saying it is not a tax.  Does this mean that he is saying it is not constitutional and that it is not a law.  Ha!  It passed Congress as a tax bill.  Oh, and since it is not a tax, why the need for so many IRS agents to enforce getting this, um, penalty?

But, since in his eyes it is not a tax but a penalty, I figured it was time to look up a few definitions to see what the difference will be.

from merriam-webster

Penalty

1
: the suffering in person, rights, or property that is annexed by law or judicial decision to the commission of a crime or public offense
2
: the suffering or the sum to be forfeited to which a person agrees to be subjected in case of non-fulfillment of stipulations
Tax
1
a : a charge usually of money imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes
b : a sum levied on members of an organization to defray expenses
So, the words don’t have the exact same meaning.  Although there are a few who would argue that they suffer when they pay taxes.  It wasn’t until I began to look at the thesaurus that I found something interesting.  It has to do with the word fine, which means to penalize in a financial way.  In the list of synonyms I saw the word tax.  So, I can say either that Obamatax will penalize someone who doesn’t buy health insurance or Obamatax will tax someone who doesn’t by health insurance.
They can use penalty and penalize to describe it but when it comes down to the meanings of the words still end up meaning tax.  You can pick a word to make it sound better but the definition of the word doesn’t change.
Or perhaps rather than calling it a penalty or a tax, it should be called what it is…corporate welfare to the 1%.  Thanks occupiers, you got what you wanted by being played by the 1% as they begged you not to protest against them.  Please don’t throw me in the briar patch, oh yeah that story is no longer being taught since historical stories aren’t politically correct.

Did we get played by the 1%?

Yes, I am referring to that group that the OWS were against.  No matter if you are liberal or conservative, you know that in the current government, that our voices don’t hold the weight we would like because lobbyists and big dollar donors are able to have a lot more influence. 

When the SC decision came down this week I realized that we have been played by the 1%.  So, I really began to wonder what is in it for them.  Then, I realized that the wealthy get better health insurance with the restrictions of cost in place on the taxes of the middle class because the penalties won’t hit them the way it hits the middle class.  If 1$ didn’t want it, the decision would have gone the other way. 

Not quite sure why but I think the hospitals want a single payer system.  For the past few years I have been hearing that doctors have gradually gone from private practice to being employees of the hospitals with the excuse of they don’t have to worry about malpractice and get a set salary.  Then, the headlines here from the healthcare companies are that they are excited that they will be getting millions of more customers, which means more revenues for them. There is also something about batched payments that are coming down the line starting with orthopedics, which means that the insurance company will pay one amount for a procedure that incorporates all the care.  When I read that in the paper it was initiated by the insurance company.  Not quite sure how this will play out because for a while Medicare has been setting the standards of how other insurance companies pay for procedures.  Now, I wonder what really happened in DC when the insurance companies met with Congress before the bill was passed. 

All in all, I can see that this decision only benefits the 1% with maybe a few crumbs throw in to keep those without insurance happy that they expect to have the same health insurance that was promised to them by Obama.  Remember when he said that he would ensure that everyone would have the same insurance as those on Capitol Hill get?  The same group that is exempt from being covered by Obamatax. 

Obama can’t handle the job so he blames Bush

You know there is a reason why presidents tend to keep quiet about previous presidents and not talk about the current presidents. They know what it is like to be in the position of making decisions based on information that they have received that may not be known to the general public. They may not agree when it comes to politics or the decisions that are made but they understand the process and pressures that accompany the position.

When I read that Obama is once again blaming Bush for the trouble he is having in the White House on Gateway Pundit, the first thought that came to mind is that he really has no idea what he is doing for the reasons I mentioned above. If he really was able to handle being president and do the job he would realize that Bush had been in the same position. Instead, he continues to use the only democrat line they have available to defend their policies that are making things worse instead of better. Of course, they can’t blame themselves since they have had control of Congress since 2007. When did things start getting worse? Oh, yeah about the time they regained control of Congress.

Finally, it gets tiring to want to debate progressives and they can’t. Now I understand why. It is hard to debate someone when you don’t have any material to use for your points in the debate. You can’t talk about how Obamacare will have a positive impact on the economy and that goes for Cap and Trade as well. What can they say about Arizona and the criminals that are coming into this country and continuing to commit crimes with the backing of the democrat party? So, all they can do is point their finger at the right and call us idiots. I guess they forget that old saying that when you point one finger at me you have 3 pointing back at yourself.

Obama has put this country in chronic pain

I deal with chronic pain. I usually have it under control but sometimes, like today, nothing works to make me feel better. The way I describe the pain on days like today is that it feels like someone used my body as a punching bag. It dawns on me that this is pretty much what is going on with Obamacorn. On some days we feel better but on other days the country seems to be used as a punching bag by Obamacorn and his cronies. On these days I realize I have a choice I make each and every day. Do I allow the pain to become my way of life or do I manage it the best I can until a better day comes along? I know that if I really wanted to I could allow this pain to define me or I can decide to define the pain. It is the same with citizens of the USA. We can either decide to allow the pain to take us over and surrender to it or we can decide to fight it and keep moving with it. I know I will find a way to make even the bad days be better. It may take me a while but I will find a way.

Even though we are waiting for November to stand up and vote so that those in DC will know what we want. We have learned an important lesson from Obamacorn. We have learned that we have to watch all those who work for us in DC as well as in state and local areas. They tend to forget that we pay their salaries and are their employers. They seem to get the idea in their heads that we work for them.

It is a funny thing about this chronic pain, exercise and moving helps it. I actually hurt more if I stay immobile and try to nurse the pain. It is the same with the chronic pain we are in as a country, we can’t just sit back and wait for our monthly check to come in as we complain about our aches and pains. We have to fight the pain and define who we are in spite of it not let it tell us who we are!

And, yes, I dread having to deal with Obamacorn Care with this chronic pain because I am sure it will not rate high on the scale for them because some doctors don’t think it is real. However, I have found vitamins to work the best. Of course, that leads me to worry about the rumors I have heard that the government wants more control over vitamins and herbal remedies. But, I will fight and figure out a way around anything that he does when it comes to taking care of this pain.

Jim Cooper says one thing and votes another way on Obamacare

Just found this post on Right Minded Online from August 21, 2009 when Jim Cooper said that he would not vote for Obamacare. Well, we all know that every time he had to chance to vote against it as he said he would do, he voted for it. Remember how well he kept his word when November comes around. (bold is mine)

Congressman Jim Cooper, a Democrat who represents us here in west Wilson County, has said he will absolutely not vote for ObamaCare.

Thank you, Jim Cooper. Hopefully, there are enough level-headed Democrats still around to kill this thing in Congress.
