Get Ready, Get Medicaid! ACA expands Medicaid

imageThis Affordable Care Act is awesome huh?  Part of the ACA is states have an option to increase their Medicaid Program.  The states responsibility is only 7% of the total $1 Trillion required, the states are making out on this one.  But wait, who’s responsible to pay the other 93% you ask, the federal government, they are just going to print money. BS!  More than $930 Billion will be forked over to the 22 states that opted for the federal aid in Medicaid.  Now who’s responsible to make sure the government has enough money to pay for their entitlement programs? We are, tax payers will be footing the bill!   Awesome huh?  Subsidized insurances for low income and increase the population for Mediciad.   All this and we as a country have yet to see a surplus of revenue since Clinton.  Spending what we don’t have.

Unfortunately, this federal subsidy will only last for 10 years, then the states will be required to pay for all Medicaid recipients. Hhmm … My bet, the states that took the Medicaid option  will be requesting financial assistance when that time comes.

AX Men .. History Channel

Does this mean, our History Channel is an advocate of reducing our tree coverage on our planet? For profit?    Hey History Channel, can you show us how fast you can plant a tree, for every tree removed on the show?  Make History, by improving our planet,  please.

Black bears, big lumber and a lack of real roads constantly challenge their ability to conquer one of North America’s final frontiers.

Thats awesome huh?  The Ax-men are removing tree from Alaska, one of  Americas final frontier.

Wheres the Wi-Fi, Verizon doesn’t want free Wi-Fi ..

image

Free Wi-Fi, free internet phone!  Remember all those old phones, but the internet or Wi-Fi still works, potentially we wouldn’t need Verizon, or ATT, Sprint..  Face time, tango, oovoo.. Are completely internet based and will become more widely accepted rapidly, but will be slowed due to the large cell companies preventing this technology from coming to market.  I would invest in the next 5 mile, 10 mile Wi-Fi!  Ask your carrier next time how much just for the data, unfortunately it’s not offered that way.  You can use an old phone today, but Wi-Fi is limited to predominantly your home, work and the coffee shop! But its still free!

Perspective on LGBT

As ironically as it sounds I have never had any real enemies, little skirmishes in elementary school, then alcohol and college, alright high school.

I had a friend up until a week ago, that I confronted and he came out.  I’m straight and have never floundered that part of my sexual desires.  But two women … That’s a different article and probably blog.

I’ve been confronted by bi-guys a few times, once at the gym, nice guy, just moved into town, he asks if I wanted to go next door and grab some breakfast (sat morn, said hey 3-4x), shortly into the eggs, he asks if I want to go to Atlanta with him. Something about Elton John. Heh.  Crazy.

My kid’s high school has a well known boy and 2 girls that are lg, maybe b.  I know of the boy And he’s extremely flamboyant and very feminin. Anc there’s a good chance there’s a few others that Have more of an introverted personality.

Macklemore solidified the love that two people of the same sex should be allowed the same rights as non lgbt, and has raised awareness of the neglect this group of people have endured,

They deserve equal rights as married folk of the opposite sex. Insurance and bank related stuff specifically.

So that was all the good, the honest, from the heart kinda stuff.  now the not so good.

- a subset of of the LG community are extremely over sexual, and overall give the lg community a bad name.

- Aids can be transferred in many ways! Anal sex is one way.

- when someone has Aids they are in denial and sometimes don’t care and have sex without telling their partner(s).

- many people with Aid’s use drugs, and share needles.  Approximately 34% of the people who have Aids in NY, were heterosexual, doing drugs with needles.

- Almost 30 Billion dollars the US will spend in a year to confront the Aids epidemic, both here in the US and some globally.  Too much, if you ask me.

If the LGBT community wants support from the more conservative groups, they need to clean their act up.  Pledge for safe sex and safe drug use, when needles are involved. This is where a need for awareness needs to take place, by Macklemore!  Things are getting better slowly in the US, but undeniably, most world governments want to prevent these relationships.

Unfortunately, I’m still debating what and how the B & the T part of the LGBT, fit into all this.

Bisexuals, let’s think about that for a moment.  this category is for people who want multiple partners, from both their own sex and the opposite.  I know a few women, that have experienced their own sex but prefer the opposite.   I don’t know anyone who wants to marry and wed to two other people.  And I’m really not sure if that’s what our society has in mind.  i don’t care what people want to get involved in.  But my thought is there would be tremendous tension trying to satisfy multiple partners.  And would fail.  Even polygamy is not supported by the Mormons any more.  Although it still exists, one man supporting multiple wives and many children, they are not part of the church.  I don’t believe the women are bi-sexual.

The progressives want unisex bathrooms, seriously?  That will never happen, but what are the transgenders to do, when they have to use the restroom?  They are males, dressed up as a female and vice versa.  I do believe it happens, when a boy should have been a girl and vice versa.

Promote Safe Sex!

Mexico s junk food tax

I’m picking up some last minute items for a kayak trip tomorrow and I couldn’t resist what I was looking at, only an hour or so after hearing about the junk food tax. Maybe this tax could pay for all the bariatric surgeries under Obama care?

The Demise of a Democracy

The Demise of a democracy, when a politician is scared to reduce the payout/benefits of any section of a federal program, because, they may not get voted back into office.  Including their own benefits!  Why would they be worried?  Because more people work for, and/or receive benefits from the govt. than work in the private sector.   What government employee is going to vote to cut 20% off of social security (ponzI-scheme), Medicare, unemployment, non-profits, military, Medicaid assistance,  IRS, CIA, NIH, FDA, and all other programs, NONE!.  Our country is spinning out of control.  Unfortunately there are almost as many government/public employees compared to the private sector, the public employee makes on average twice that of a private sector employee.  Who wouldn’t want to work for the government, better salary, benefits and pension, and you’ll never get laid off!

Government employees make twice the public empMore government, less capitalism.  Get ready it’s now upon up.  And the lobbyists need to go away, and if you work or receive any government funds, you should not be allowed to vote.  This would save our democracy and our capitalism for a free economy.  It’s not free anymore. Unfortunately, this will never happen, and we are going down a one way road to socialism.

Our Government Spending, I repeat is hurting our economy!

imageSkyrocketing US DebtAny government/employee that can’t find a way to rid our debt needs to be fired!

This link from US News suggests our federal government will be paying a $Trillion dollars a year to pay the INTEREST only on our debt! This is effed up!  I can’t afford our government spending any more.

This Independent (me) will vote for republicans who hold their ground

Lean GovernmentOver the debt limit concerns and will support them regardless if the government shutdown ends today or continues past any deadlines!  The federal government employees calling these radio shows crying and sobbing,  eyed to file unemployment and go get a real job, paying taxes, not just taking mine.

Its time we six sigma big government and go lean!
