School Kids Praise Barack Hussein Obama

American school children aren’t the first to sing praise to their leader. Old footage is available, of children extolling the praise of their leaders, Kim Jong Il, Aldof  Hitler, Vladimir Lenin.

What’s indoctrination? Imbuing with usually partisan, or sectarian opinion, point of view or principle.

The Three C’s of Healthcare Reform

from NFIB.com

What Small Business Wants From Healthcare Reform

What Small Business Wants From Healthcare Reform
Small Business Matters in the Debate, And the Debate Matters to Small Business
  • The cost of health insurance has been the No. 1 problem facing small businesses for more than 20 years.
  • About half of the nation’s uninsured are people who are self-employed or work for a small business.
  • Small businesses buy in the individual and small group markets – the two most broken and expensive markets.
  • A June 2009 New York Times story noted “Policy analysts and others say, unless the insurance industry is willing to give some of the same ground to small businesses that they have ceded to individual policy holders, a big part of what is wrong with the nation’s health care system may not get fixed.”
Healthcare reform for small business must address the 3 C’s:
Cost, Choice and Competition
Cost: The cost of insurance for small business and their employees must come down. Small business pays more (than big business) for less.
  • For too many small business owners, healthcare is one of their fastest growing and most unpredictable costs.
  • Since 1999, health insurance costs for small firms have increased 113 percent.
  • Employees in our nation’s smallest firms pay an average of 18 percent more in health insurance premiums for the same benefits the largest firms provide.
  • Small business and the self-employed want equity in tax treatment – regardless of how or where insurance is purchased.
Choice: Owners and employees need more choices of insurance plans and options, and an easier way to “shop” for these plans.
  • Today, among firms with 1-199 workers, 86 percent of those who offer coverage can only offer one plan.
  • Small business desperately needs a more efficient marketplace in which to purchase health insurance.
  • A well-functioning connector-exchange can be an answer to these needs. It is critical that exchanges guarantee all small business owners access to more choices of plans.
Competition: Lack of competition makes it easier for insurers and providers to raise prices. We need greater competition in the marketplace.
  • A 2009 General Accounting Office report found that competition in the small group market has become further concentrated with less competition amongst carriers.
    • When combined, the five largest carriers in the small group market account for 75 percent or more of the market in 34 of the 39 states.
  • Small employers benefit most from reforms that spur competition, such as those reflected by the SHOP Act (H.R. 3260), legislation targeted to small business that utilizes insurance market reforms, tax -based incentives and personal choice for health insurance – in a voluntary setting.

Priority Vaccinations

N1H1 would have been called Mexican Flu if the naming of a flu followed protocol, or kept its first name, Swine Flu. It’s really Human-Bird-Pig combo. That info leaked out when the then-named Swine Flu was touted as epidemic at 5 deaths in Mexico.

Now, there’s legislation to inject US with a vaccination. Forced. Or fined $1,000 per day. Untested. Linked to Nerve Disease. Children and Young Adults the targeted victims.
It’s gotten a bit old, this business of people in Washington doing things TO us instead of FOR us.
And they’ll likely say they (Washington elites and theirs) are too good to be vaccinated against N1H1/Swine Flu/Mexican Flu/Human-Bird-Pig Combo Flu.

This is what I propose:

Invite television reporters with close-up cameras.
Gather N1H1 proponents and opponents, with the background to identify the elements of the vaccine.
Vaccinate the First Family with the intended stuff to inject in US. The First Family should be first because even the name tells that.
Then gather Congressional families, and families of the ones Media calls Czars, and the VP and vaccinate them.
Wait until November 2012 to see the results, before offering the vaccine to US.
If it is a truly innocuous vaccine, but a really good one, then there will be fewer of We, the People to worry about getting sick. That would reduce the cost of health care.
If the vaccine is truly unsafe then We, the People will have fewer Congressmen to oust.
Just a suggestion. Let them be first.

This is what I propose:

  • Encourage reporters, with close-up cameras, from conservative, liberal, democrat, libertarian, republican, socialist, etc. agendas.
  • Gather N1H1 proponents and opponents, with the background to identify the elements of the vaccine. Let the cameras roll, to authenticate the substance.
  • Vaccinate the First Family with the intended stuff they want to inject in US. The First Family should be first because, well, even the name states that they’re first.
  • Then gather Congressional families, and families of the ones Media calls Czars, and the VP, and vaccinate them. With the stuff they want to put in US.
  • Wait until November 2012 to see the results.
  • If it is a truly innocuous vaccine, a really good one, then there will be fewer of We, the People to worry about getting sick. That would reduce the cost of health care because we’ll die from the N1H1 flu pandemic.

    If the vaccine is truly unsafe then We, the People will have fewer Congressmen to oust, and won’t have to worry any more if there really is a valid birth certificate, or not.

    Let the ones sitting in their Gold Cushioned Elitist Chairs, the ones with the power to tell us the demands they make against US, and their families, be first to be vaccinated.

    Just a suggestion.

    He’s Not My Doctor -by Caldara

    by Caldara

    Remember those anti-Bush bumper stickers that read, “He’s not my President”?  Well, I am pleased to announce that we at the Independence Institute debuted our new awesomely awesome bumper stickers yesterday at the Mike Coffman townhall.  They went faster than we could hand them out!

    He's Not My Doctor

    If you’d like to show the world that Obama is not your doctor, email Mary MacFarlane at mary@i2i.org and send her your name, address, and primary email account, and we’ll send you a brand spanking new bumper sticker – free of charge!

    ***PS – Due to the overwhelming demand, please limit your bumper sticker requests to just 2 per household. Thanks!
