This item is truly worth reflection. It clarifies what has been muddied by design. Quote: "This isn’t how the corporate world operates at all. Majority shareholders aren’t interested in “diversity.” They’re interested in remaining majority shareholders. That’s why they prefer to feel the pain of obliterated social capital, foreign colonies, migrant crime, and H1B’d jobs vicariously while on a private jet to Monaco. It’s useful to understand this relative value perception to know why citizen shares in countries are so routinely discounted by the rich. For most people, their house represents a significant portion of their wealth. Thus granting equal shares of it to a dozen mestizo squatters would pose egregious loss. Yet for any of the men named herein, their residence represents an infinitesimal component of their wealth. Losing a house is nothing to losing a cocktail party invite. They could give a house to Somalis for the charity glow alone, while suffering no more of a comparative loss than a penny out of your pocket. Their true castle is their fame, wealth, prestige, and brand. And these they are not at all willing to give to refugees. Your home, however, is quite another story. https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/03/21/be-the-ceo-of-your-shares/
This is so true. Quote: "All addictions -- whether to drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex or cigarettes -- are very hard to escape. There is one addiction, however, that may be more difficult than any other to escape, in part because it is not even regarded as an addiction. It is entitlements addiction, the addiction to getting something for nothing. One indication as to the power of entitlements addiction is the fact that while great numbers of people have voluntarily given up drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc. -- almost always at great pain -- few give up an addiction to entitlements. For the majority of able-bodied people who get cash payments, food stamps, subsidized housing, free or subsidized health insurance, and other welfare benefits, the thought of giving up any one of those and beginning to pay for them with their own earned money is as hard as giving up alcohol is for an alcoholic. Politicians know this, which is why it is close to impossible to ever reduce entitlements. And, of course, the left knows this, which is why the left almost always wins a debate over entitlements. Every American who is the beneficiary of an entitlement backs them, and many who are not beneficiaries of entitlements would like to be." https://townhall.com/columnists/dennisprager/2017/03/21/the-most-dangerous-addiction-of-them-all-entitlements-n2301802?
By now everyone knows what happened to Ryancare. It flopped and in my view rightly so. To say that others have not worked on viable replacements is wrong. Several have been circulated. This is a synopsis supported by analysis developed by the Heritage Foundation. http://www.heritage.org/health-care-reform/report/plan-repeal-and-replace-obamacare This item addresses the high cost of pharmaceuticals and what could possibly happen." http/www.wealthauthority.com/articles/will-chinese-drugs-prove-a-bitter-pill/ There may well be a silver lining with the failure of Ryancare. https://townhall.com/columnists/patbuchanan/2017/03/28/the-ryancare-route--winning-by-losing-n2304976? Want to see some Republican hypocrisy and deception. Take a look at this. http://www.libertynewsnow.com/obamacare-repeal-gop-vote-scam/article6941 Republicans deceived the voters who believed they really wanted to repeal Obamacare. Ryan is at the head of the list of the hypocritical deceeivers. The Freedom Caucus was right to fight him and expose all the other hypocrites. Trump should be mad as all get out.
What is your view of the Republicans failure to pass a new healthcare law? This item takes a look at the fallout. Quote: "Because Obamacare remains intact, healthcare remains in morbid free-fall. Doctors are still quitting the medical field, with premiums rising, health insurance exchanges failing, and hospitals closing. Democrats did themselves no favors in fighting against reforms. Obamacare is still an albatross hanging around their necks, and they will have to blatantly lie to voters that it’s working, or that somehow the Republicans are to blame because … they keep trying to fix the mess created by the Democratic Party. So, should Democrats around the country pat themselves on the back for stopping another disaster? Perhaps they deserve a little bit of credit, since they were loud. The true glory and applause belong to Republicans across the country who hammered the Congressional majority to reject “Obamacare-lite.” And, "Candidate Trump promised to repeal Obamacare. He also offered a health care program that he would take care of everybody. Nothing could make that happen more quickly than getting rid of Obamacare, then repealing the other mandates, regulations, and limitations which have made bureaucrats happy, but have made Americans unhealthy. Congressional Republicans don’t even have to “start over.” Back to the 2015 Reconciliation Bill, Republicans. Every time I called a House Rep to reject RyanCare, I also told them to reintroduce the previous bill. This is not a difficult process, people. US Senator Mike Lee is already on the job. There is a silver lining to this RyanCare defeat. The Speaker may face an early retirement, just like predecessor John “Don’t Make Me Do This! It’s Too Hard!” Boehner. Principled Republicans like Dave Brat have further established their non-establishment cred, too. May their tribe increase … and again influence in Congress." https://townhall.com/columnists/arthurschaper/2017/03/25/ryancare-fail-big-victory-for-house-freedom-caucus-n2304017? I don't know about you but I am glad it was defeated. Repeal and replace is absolutely necessary. Tweaking Obamacare to make it Ryancare is NOT the solution. A market place solution is the answer with a sound safety net for those in real need. Government needs to get out of the way. Here is an addendum. http://patriotupdate.com/conservative-congressman-explains-healthcare-vote-isnt-president-trump/
This is what is likely to happen and will produce a much better solution than Ryancare ever would have been. http://www.wnd.com/2017/03/obamacare-lite-goes-down-but-what-next/
Democrat support for abortion is support for murder. That is a fact. They want to deny Judge Gorsuch a seat on the Supreme Court because he does not support murder in any case. Quote: "[Senator] Feinstein drew on the issue of abortion for her criticism — saying that she probably will oppose Gorsuch because he believes “the intentional taking of a human life by private persons is always wrong.” And, "“Already, Democratic Senators are on the attack. They understand the historic nature of this nomination. Left-wing groups have used the courts and reckless judicial decisions to impose their agenda on the people. But that could all end soon,” he said. “Judge Gorsuch has pledged to obey the Constitution and to respect the limited role of judges. Judges are not policy makers. Judges are not politicians. And when the Supreme Court restrains itself, the Left typically loses.” http://www.lifenews.com/2017/03/20/democrat-slams-neil-gorsuch-he-believes-the-intentional-taking-of-human-life-is-always-wrong/
More evidence of coordinated leftist corruption between government and Planned Parenthood. Quote: "The Democratic attorneys general who investigated and charged the two videographers behind the 2015 tapes revealing Planned Parenthood's efforts to sell fetal tissue have received tens of thousands of dollars from abortion supporters. Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed 15 charges against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress for violating the privacy of Planned Parenthood employees and abortion doctors by publicizing candid comments about their operations." http://freebeacon.com/politics/dems-behind-cmp-charges-received-47000-planned-parenthood-supporters/? This is a case where the discover of rank lawlessness is being charged with crimes while at the same time political partisans ignore the actual criminals because they belong to the politically acceptable group. Read/view this and tell me the organization is worthy of praise and our tax dollars. http://www.lifenews.com/2017/03/29/shocking-video-planned-parenthood-director-caught-admitting-babies-born-alive-after-abortion-are-killed/
This is an example of rank Democrat hypocrisy. They claim Republicans should not do what they did when they were in charge. http://freebeacon.com/politics/take-two-half-minutes-see-hypocritical-democrats-supreme-court/
The Democrats and anti-Trumpers are elated and think they are winning their war against Trump. This item begs to differ. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/03/28/trump-agenda-on-offense-7-stories-in-24-hours-give-presidents-base-hope/
