The Big Façade: Only 17% of Americans support the Republican healthcare bill
Post Date: 2017-03-28 15:24:30 by Gatlin
1 Comments
Only 17% of Americans support the Republican healthcare bill, according to a poll released Thursday from Quinnipiac University. The Freedom Caucus members find a poll they like and one that in some way supports their agenda….then they treat it as though Moses had just ascended from Mount Sinai with the information carved in tablets. The Freedom Caucus members use this 17% facade to maintain a concealment of a more pleasant and creditable reality, while they completely ignore that: Only 26% of Americans favor a full repeal of the health care law, according to a Kaiser poll. The Kaiser Poll also shows 30% favor expanding the law and another 19 percent want lawmakers to move forward ...

A few days before the House Freedom Caucus brought down the American Health Care Act, Rep. Mark Meadows laid out the stakes for his group: “This is a defining moment for our nation, but it’s also a defining moment for the Freedom Caucus.” The North Carolina Republican was right. The vote was indeed a defining moment — a test in which the Freedom Caucus had to decide: Would it remain a minoritarian opposition bloc whose only role was to defend truth without compromise? Or could it become something bigger, transforming itself into a majoritarian governing force that could lead Congress toward achievable conservative victories and have a lasting impact on the direction of ...

OPINION: The Damage the Freedom Caucus Has Done to the Young Trump Presidency, Republicans and the Country May Be Felt for Years

It is hard to overestimate the damage the Freedom Caucus has done to the fledgling presidency of Donald Trump, and to the country. By blocking the American Health Care Act of 2017, the conservative group has guaranteed that Americans will struggle forward under the burden of Obamacare. In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty. Last year premiums went up 25%; it’s likely the increases will be higher this year. Republicans will own those ...

'Art of the Deal' Healthcare Bill Failure a Way to Oust Paul Ryan and Achieve Full Repeal of Obamacare? (Conspiracy Theory)
Post Date: 2017-03-26 16:27:45 by hondo68

Today, President Trump pulled the healthcare bill after it fell short of the votes needed to pass. The highly unpopular ‘Ryancare’ replacement of Obamacare left the Republicans divided. Did Trump give Paul Ryan just enough rope to hang himself? It is no secret that Paul Ryan has contempt for President Trump and is working to sabotage him. This may Trump’s plan to have Paul Ryan ousted and replaced. It is a mixed bag of emotions today after the Obamacare repeal failed to pass. The replacement, dubbed ‘Ryancare’ was highly unpopular and often referred to as ‘Obamacare 2.0’. Of course we want Obamacare repealed, however; we don’t want another big ...

Dystopia is in the air these days. George Orwell’s “1984” is selling like hotcakes — if hotcakes still sold well in this low-carb world. Is the president to blame?I think historians, no doubt working from their subterranean monasteries, bunkered from the radioactive wasteland above, will note that dystopianism, apocalypticism and other forms of existential paranoia actually predate the Trump presidency. It’s a fever that passes from one subset of the population to another and, occasionally, blows up into a full-scale pandemic. We all carry the infection in us, sometimes slow-simmering, sometimes in remission and sometimes in extremis. Hollywood has been running ...

Why Approval Voting is Unworkable in Contested Elections

And How the Borda Count, Score Voting, Range Voting and Bucklin Voting are Similarly Flawed Due to Vulnerability to Strategic Voting Approval voting is a method of voting to elect single winners that has adherents among some voting theorists, but is unworkable in contested elections in which voters have a stake in the outcome. Once aware of how approval voting works, strategic voters will always earn a significant advantage over less informed voters. This problem with strategic voting far outweighs any other factor when evaluating the potential use of approval voting in governmental elections. Other methods that should not be used in meaningfully contested elections include range voting, ...

Why Trump’s Syria 'Surge' Will Fail

Last week President Trump significantly escalated the US military presence in Syria, sending some 400 Marines to the ISIS-controlled Raqqa, and several dozen Army Rangers to the contested area around Manbij. According to press reports he will also station some 2,500 more US troops in Kuwait to be used as he wishes in Iraq and Syria. Not only is it illegal under international law to send troops into another country without permission, it is also against US law for President Trump to take the country to war without a declaration. But not only is Trump’s first big war illegal: it is doomed to failure because it makes no sense. President Trump says the purpose of the escalation is to ...

This is a pretty balanced 1 hour PBS documentary about the events that led up to the cluster-bleep at Ruby Ridge Idaho,what happened once some Fed panicked and shot teenage Sammy Weaver's dog that was barking at him,and the final result. Pretty well balanced and has interviews with all of the main players except for Lon Horiuchi ([url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lon_Horiuchi[/url]), a piece of semi-human garbage that I sincerely hope someone tracked down and gave him what he so richly deserved. Since he is not mentioned,I am assuming that he is unfortunately still alive and still in hiding. AFAIK,the feral government has never identified the US Marshall that shot 14 year old Sammy ...

Trump’s Transportation Secretary halts funding for California’s bullet train

The last time we checked in on the construction of California Governor Jerry Brown’s legacy project, the high speed train connecting Los Angeles to San Fransisco, it was already already $3.6 billion over budget and seven years behind schedule. In that piece, I a surmised that federal funding to help complete this project could be axed, as several pricey grants were sitting on the desks of administrators now working for President Trump (who has been defied and mocked by numerous California politicos, including our governor). Sure enough, the Secretary of Transportation has halted the transfer of millions of dollars in funding for the bullet train: In the first big hit to the Bay Area ...

We all have difficulties. Some are related to age,some to health,some are financial,and some to injuries. We all complain about these things,but most of us just learn to live with them and we even develop a sense of humor about them because what else CAN we do. Was shopping at a local hardware store today for a strap wrench,and noticed a really fat woman shopping with a girl who was obviously her teenage daughter. Girl also had read hair,and looked to be maybe 17. I have seen film of women released from Nazi labor/death camps from WW-2 that looked fat compared to this girl. She was maybe 5'7" or so,but I seriously doubt she weighed 80 lbs. They ended up in the checkout line ahead ...

Just watched Chuck Todd "interview" John McLunatic on Meet the Depressed,and Todd did everything but blow him on live TV. EVERY question was a set up for McLuntic to agree that Trump can't be trusted because he is incompetent. He even has McLunatic calling for a Congressional investigation on Trump. The final question was to ask McLunatic "Trump has said that ABC,CBS,NBC,and CNN were not HIS enemy,but were the enemy of the American People",and of course McLunatic then crawled up his ass and took a nap while kissing Chuckie's ass on the way in and out. Then Leon Panetta came on and said the intelligence community can't trust Trump. Panetta was VERY careful ...

Creationists don’t like The Clergy Letter Project, a strong, pro-evolution statement signed by over 13,000 Christian clergymen. Here’s the Wikipedia article on it: Clergy Letter Project. The Project is exceedingly troublesome for creationists because it flatly contradicts their claim that one can’t be a good Christian and also accept evolution. When we say the Clergy Letter is a strong statement, we’re not exaggerating. Part of it says: We believe that the theory of evolution is a foundational scientific truth, one that has stood up to rigorous scrutiny and upon which much of human knowledge and achievement rests. To reject this truth or to treat it as “one theory ...

Legacy of Obama: “Goodbye To The Worst President” America Has Ever Had
Post Date: 2017-01-21 10:34:07 by Homer Bohn
5 Comments
Obama has been a puppet president and a force of anti-American ideology, preferring to treat people as plebs and dependents, rather than as independent and proud individuals. Never before in U.S. history has the political and social landscape been so sharply divided, and so much power titled towards the wealthiest few who pull strings and hold all the power. At its root, the Obama administration was a lot of hype, a lot of pomp and circumstance for a cult of personality figure. Underneath it all, Barack Obama was little more than a front man for the bankers and war mongers. A loss of civil liberties, mass surveillance programs, drones, war and health care reform are all part of his ...

The Reason the Zika Virus Appeared on earth is SOLELY because of the Nazi's

To all my friends in my home town, The reason the Zika virus has appeared on earth, first in Brazil, and now in Texas, is solely because of theNAZIs (according to the Revelation. That is, most of the NAZIs who killed millions of Jews (and also millions of Christians which is not talked about) fled to Brazil at the end of WW II to escape being arrested and probably receiving the death penalty. (And the rest of them fled to Argentina which has also been hit hard by the ZIKA virus). Brazil turned a blind eye and is now paying the price. (It may take a few decades, but no one can escape God's judgement). Anyhow the point of this post is to tell everyone about the NAZIs in Bay City who ...
