When you get the people like Jared and others who may be predisposed to be violent for a lot of different reasons, it can sort of legitimize all that for them. It’s not the moviemaker’s fault, it’s not the talk show host’s fault but it does have some effect on people like him.
However, if we assume that we are putatively not a banana republic, Mr. Obama (or anyone else) is free to accept largesse as a donation ? a gift ? if that is how it was intended and go merrily on his or her way, carrying out any programs he or she wishes, after sending a lovely thank you note.
That statement is a fact. At a time where our economy continues to sink and his policies are a main force behind the sinking, Obama continues to suffer from ADHD. Remember the old adage: “Its the economy stupid?” This should be Obama’s only concern in 2009.
Before we get into Washington politics, a quick word has to be raised about this election. The decision of voters to put Scott Brown into office is so full of irony that it is almost too much to believe. Brown was voted into the senate seat vacated when Ted Kennedy died of cancer. Kennedy, of course, was a long serving Democrat who was a huge proponent of health care reform. Unless Brown takes a left turn in his political beliefs, his election will effectively keep the Democrats from reforming health care on a partisan basis. Throw in the fact that Brown considers himself a family values man, but posed naked in Cosmopolitan and you just have to shake your head!
First and foremost they were taking bribes from all the huge mega corporations. The corporations didn’t want workers they wanted slaves they could mistreat, pay next to nothing wages for and pay no benefits to. In the millions of illegals crossing the border, the corporations got the cheap, slave labor they had long sought. All they had to do was to bribe presidents, congress and the senate to do it. The had to bribe a DEA and border security official now and then as well but for them it was well worth it.
Many carriers in the Chicago Area, will exclude pre-existing conditions for twelve months or more. Aetna will not exclude those conditions if you have creditable coverage for at least 18 months. They either accept you or they do not. The first question I ask when someone tells me they have a medical condition is, “do you want to get them covered?”. Dealing with a broker can save you more time so you do not apply with a carrier to find out you have to wait 12 months, to use the coverage.
So let’s make sure, for example, that if you go to a hospital, you get one of those operations that you discussed, and it turns out that two weeks later you’ve got to be readmitted because they didn’t do it right the first time, that the hospital has to pay some penalty for that, or at least they’re not being reimbursed as much as a hospital who gets it right the first time. That’s an example of changing incentives that can save us money.
