Random Political Thoughts –


constitution

Wonder if people will take notice ….. pray… get involved in regards to what is going on in the world today- The political processes have just run a “muck” and SOME of the American People, have been so hypnotized by President Obama either having a great deal of “swag” ( which I cannot stand that term in reference to a world leader ) or they are STILL happy because a black man is in the White House –

With so many people out of work……homelessness, drugs, murder, inflation, military scandals etc… it is even a wonder that America still has a leg to stand on and REMAIN RESPECTED from other world leaders within NATO – (seriously) Italy, United Kingdom to name a few are to say the least……”loosley” have our country’s back as the votes have shown this week. I wonder WHY President Obama has been the ONLY U.S. President who have NOT shown any loyalty to Israel? He has proven to be Muslim when “it is convenient” and has proven to be Christian when “it is convenient” for the last few years.

Trust me, with a black man being in the White House in 2008 until present is INDEED huge news. Nonetheless, it is as huge as what he does during his two terms in office…. Just like a quarterback is only as good as his “line protects” him – nose tackle etc.

When things do not go the way the president wants, he blames CONGRESS and when things do not go the way congress wants, they blame THE PRESIDENT. I mean, when is America going to realize that every department is needed to effectively run a country even if the president is CHECKERBOARD!  ( F.Y.I. but being black is not enough to run a country! )

Praying that when AMERICA “eventually goes to war with Syria”…….our homeland soil can remain to be protected — After September 11th and with it also fast approaching – I am a bit worried – but Thank goodness = PRAYER still works.

Obama – and “his care”


A big change in America’s health care system is coming at the beginning of next year.

The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, will go into full effect in 2014, giving millions of uninsured Americans access to health care.

However, there are still misconceptions about the law.

In today’s Just Explain It, we’ll tell you five things you might not know about Obamacare.

Number one… Contrary to what 42 percent of Americans think, Obamacare really is happening. In fact, people can start signing up for state-run health insurance on October 1st. That’s when states and the federal government will open marketplaces, called exchanges, to offer subsidized benefits to the nation’s 50 million uninsured.

Number two… Another survey found that a majority of Americans think the law cuts Medicare benefits and covers undocumented immigrants. It doesn’t.

Actually, the government expects the average Medicare recipient to save approximately $35,000 over the next ten years.

 Number three… Tax credits. Next year, health insurance for eligible individuals or families will be subsidized.

For example, someone making just under $23,000 a year wouldn’t have to spend more than 6.3 percent of their annual income on health insurance. Based on a $3,030 plan, their contribution would be $1,450. Under Obamacare, they’d receive a tax credit of $1,580 to put towards their coverage.

Number four The 80/20 rule. Insurers are now required to spend at least 80 percent of premium dollars on providing healthcare. The other 20 percent can be used on overhead expenses like excessive administrative costs and profits. In 2012, this provision saved Americans over two billion dollars.

If insurers don’t comply, they’re required to provide customers with a rebate. In 2011, over 13 million consumers received $1.1 billion in rebates – that’s around $150 per customer.

And finally… taxes. No matter what you’ve heard, your health benefits under Obamacare will not be taxed. The law does require that employers report the value of your annual coverage on your W-2, but the government says that’s just for workers’ information.

In the end, the Affordable Care Act is incredibly complex piece of legislation I AM SURE THAT THE PRESIDENT AND OTHER HIGH POWERED POLITICIANS WILL NOT HAVE OBAMACARE.

It enacts sweeping reforms that involve every state and millions of Americans. Do you think it will work for you? … Siggghhhh and Blaahhh

Life in Chicago –

 JUST SIMPLY VERY SAD……………

Memorial Day weekend has brought violence to Chicago, with six killed and at least 22 wounded so far, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

On Friday evening a 17-year-old girl was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, and an 18-year-old man was shot in the chest in the same incident. Later that night another man was shot and killed.

On Saturday, Gregory Dixon, 29, was shot to death about half a mile from President Barack Obama’s Kenwood neighborhood home. Dixon buzzed the gunmen into the apartment building himself, according to police. The attackers then entered through a door left ajar and shot Dixon in the chest and back.

Also on Saturday, and 18-year-old man was shot in the head in a possible drive-by.

On Sunday, police responded to a disturbance call and found Malcolm Dobbey, 27, shot to death in a backyard. Detectives were questioning a “person of interest” in the fatal shooting, but no charges had been brought as of Sunday evening.

Charles Jones, 42, the manager of a gentleman’s club, was shot and killed during an incident in which a Buick LaCrosse sideswiped Jones’ Maserati. When Jones pulled over to confront the other motorist, the driver and a passenger walked to another vehicle and then came back. One of them had a gun and shot Jones dead, police said. A 42-year-old woman in his car was wounded by a shot to the hip or back.
