No Bailout for Greece UNLESS…

In Consitution, Economics, Health Care, Politics, Social Issues, Supreme Court, Tax on May 17, 2010 at 3:49 pm

You are going to have to sit down for this one.  The IMF and it’s partners are telling Greece they need to PRIVATIZE their health care system to get the bailout money.   Not just this though.  They want Greece to get out of the all the private markets that are draining their funds.

READ ALL ABOUT IT!

Opinion “C” is: The truth will set us free.  NO government has really made government run health care systems work as well as the privatized model the United States has used for two centuries.  With all of the issues that government over regulation and strangle holds the feds have put on competition, the semi-free market still outperformed socialized medicine.

Greece is a prime example on several levels why we should abandon these politicians desire to “engineer” our society from inside of Washington D.C.  The sooner we admit it, the better off we will be.

I hope the plaintiffs in the U.S. Health Care repeal cases make this Greece example EXHIBIT A.

But, even if Greece gets smart and follows this rare good advice from on high, I still don’t think they should get a PENNY/EURO of bailout money.  The process of privatization should be good enough to get them to stick with what works and will pull them out of the slump they are in.  Just the same as it would in the United States.

“Quit Your Job” Says Nancy

In Economics, Elections, Health Care, Politics, Social Issues on May 17, 2010 at 11:40 am

I can’t make this stuff up.  Watch…

Opinion “C” is:  No Nancy, you “quit your JOB!”

If you think that the government is not trying to create a dependency on itself so that the people have no choice but to elect money redistributionist politicians (thieves…socialists) then you are in denial similar to a drug addict and are in need of an intervention.  Well you are in luck.  The intervention is scheduled for November.

Obama Health Care Bait & Switch

In Economics, Elections, Health Care, Politics, Social Issues on May 14, 2010 at 11:02 am

Anyone who has been on this planet for more than 5 years as a conscious adult knows that ESTIMATES are normally low when coming for anyone with interest in a contract going through.  It can be off anywhere from 5% to 200% depending on the ethics and education of the ones making the estimate.

How are ethics in Washington D.C. today?  How about health care or economic education.  My assumption is that the politicians in control have low ethics.  They are also not well educated as they are following Keynesian methodologies of economic thought.

The CBO is a little better but not much.  So as far as I am concerned, this whole health care law is a bait and switch to continue taking our money and shoving it into the pockets of special interests.  This is the latest from the CBO.  The new REPORT states:

“CBO estimates that total authorized costs in the first two categories probably exceed$115 billion over the 2010-2019 period, as detailed below.1 We do not have an estimate of the potential costs of authorizations in the third category.”
The problem I see with this statement is not just the $115 BILLION dollar mistake, but also the fact that the “third” part of the initiative has not been fully reviewed.  Contractors know that means there is likely MORE bad news on the way.  In the business world people and companies can be sued for baiting and switching.  One hopes that we can return the law and get our money back and the expense is spared.  If not, there is going to be some additional Tea Party Support in the coming weeks.

Dear Congressman Baird,

I appreciate that you took the time to respond to those of us who do not agree with this “health care” legislation.

I doubt my email in a sea of thousands is going to change your mind, as it appears from your message below, that you strongly believe health insurance is far more important than civil liberty.  But I must write anyway.

As you may well know, the people that are opposed to the recent health care legislation are generally interested not just in health care, but in a whole host if issues. The first is Liberty.   Read the rest of this entry »
