  2. The whole FCC issue was nothing more than Progressives trying to destroy the 1st Amendment again: http://cnsnews.com/mrctv-blog/mike-ciandella/universities-fcc-newsroom-probe-have-close-ties-soros-got-18m-funding

    Each and every day, it seems more and more clearer who the real enemy of freedom in this country are. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    Let’s see how many golf courses get left without water as well. They should be FIRST on the list.

    • We have seen this coming since the last major drought 20 some years ago. This area suffers from too much water to too little water. Sacramento is the second most flood endangered city behind New Orleans. Several decades ago they planned to to build the Auburn Dam which would have taken the area from the 100 year risk level to a 500 year risk level plus would have added a major water storage and recreational facility to the area. They got so far as to building the coffer dams to divert the river at Auburn but then it was stopped by the Eco crowd. Just a few years ago, they blew up the coffer dams.

      It will take a decade to build any new major storage facilities. In the meantime we will spend a fortune on welfare for the out of work farmers and businesses. We will inconvenience everyone with water restrictions and rationing. Rivers will be closed to sport fishing which will drive out the bait and lure shops. We will probably close more forest because they are critical watersheds. The insanity will continue unabated.

      Now is the perfect time to being dredging our low reservoirs, Unfortunately, I have not heard a word about that from the Gov. or legislature. Millions for relief but not a single dollar to actually fix the problems. We are spending big $s to raise Folsom Dam and the associated levees downstream to increase the flood protection to a 200 year level. But no consideration to simply digging the lake deeper while it is essentially empty. The earth removed could be sold a top soil. It might even contain gold.

    • Dale A. Albrecht says:

      Still leaves me speechless that it was only last month that the Brown declared CA in a drought state of emergency. Just viewing the picture of Lake Shasta being 100 feet down from normal. Talk about closing the barn door after the cows have gotten out.

      • Dale you are correct. It should have happened several months ago. We have had 2 and now 3 years of below normal snow pack. With the increased flows into the Delta, any idiot could see disaster ahead should we have a 3rd year of bad weather. But it was more important to create the crisis so it could be blamed on global warming then to address it ahead of time. This crisis is totally man made.

        • Dale A. Albrecht says:

          Should have happened at least 1.5 years ago. Look how fast the “green” energy folks tossed raptors on the sacrificial altar for the greater good, on an issue that will maybe be real versus an absolute requirement for water to survive. I got into an argument with a greenie several years ago in Dallas TX. I suggested that she be the 1st to volunteer to help the over-population problem. She had been for everyone else to sacrifice, not her. What justification are the enviros using to keep protecting the smelt in the river delta at the expense of the State. I do understand the food chain thing but how much food collected from the Sacremento, like bass and catfish, sturgeon as opposed to millions of folks being affected by major food shortages. I really do believe that the ultimate goal of the enviros is to severely reduce the world population by any means.

          • Dale A. Albrecht says:

            We can look to very recent history of revolutions to Eygpt. Granted the Brotherhood wanted to overthrow Mubarrak. But the protests started were about food and jobs. The price of food has increase partially due to switching huge amounts of land to ethanol production not food. We’ve easily in the past 8 months had an increase across the board for food here in Eastern Carolina of 25-30% What’s it going to go to when the food production in CA really takes hold. Also with 102M able bodied work age people out of work. Future???

  5. โ€˜Six Californiasโ€™ initiative to split up most populous US state gets green light (http://rt.com/usa/california-us-petition-draper-246/)

    Just give the whole place back to Mexico. It would be a fitting end of the left coasters there.

    • Better not happen. That would be 12 progressive senators instead of 2 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      • (b) The boundaries of the six (6) new states shall be as follows:

        (1) A new state, named Jefferson, including the territory represented by the boundaries of the following counties: Butte, Colusa, Del Norte, Glenn, Humboldt, Lake, Lassen, Mendocino, Modoc, Plumas, Siskiyou, Shasta, Tehama, and Trinity.

        (2) A new state, named North California, including the territory represented by the following counties:, Amador, El Dorado, Marin, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Sierra, Solano, Sonoma, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba.

        (3) A new state, named Central California, including the territory represented by the boundaries of the following counties: Alpine, Calaveras, Fresno, Inyo, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, Mono, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Tulare, and Tuolumne.

        (4) A new state, named Silicon Valley, including the territory represented by the following counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, San Benito, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Monterey.

        (5) A new state, named West California, including the territory represented by the following counties: Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Los Angeles, and Ventura.

        (6) A new state, named South California, including the territory of Imperial, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego.

        Actually it would be more like 8:4 progressive:conservative. The major coastal cities will remain liberal. Jefferson and Central CA would be conservative. N. CA would be a question as it included Sacramento. There would also be a huge income disparity between the various regions. One good thing that would come out of this is that the 3 mountain states would probably ease the restrictions on logging and mining. Thus we would be able to harvest our natural resources again without liberals from the cities deciding what is best.

        With that said it will not happen. As I recall it took a constitutional amendment to make W. VA. a state. It will also make it easier for La Raza to demand their UN vote to split off the southern counties and return them to Mexico.

        • Agreed it won’t go any farther than the different times someone wanted to split California into two states.

          Though in some ways it would make California more open to the will of the people than it is now.

        • Just A Citizen says:

          There is one split that would make much since, geographically and ecologically.

          Move the eastern line to the Sierra Crest. Poor California would lose Lake Tahoe and the Owens valley, however. Bwahahaahahaa.

          • Actually an east west split would make sense. The coastal cities and southern tier counties are mostly democratic. The San Joaquin Valley, Sacramento Valley and Sierras are conservative. The other important factor in this split is that the eastern half would have most of the water hence some leverage to keep the nuts in line.

            • Just A Citizen says:

              Or it could merge with Nevada………….bwahahaha.

              Folks on the east slope are generally KIN to the old Nevadans anyway.

          • Dale A. Albrecht says:

            Still waiting for shoreline property east of the San Andreas Fault. Just imagine, the San Jouquin Valley as the new bay area. We might have some new Noah’s flood stories to hand down.

  7. Auto workers union appeals defeat at VW plant in Tennessee

    In an appeal filed with the National Labor Relations Board, the union asked the federal labor agency to consider holding another vote at the plant, arguing that “interference by politicians and outside special interest groups” had swayed the election.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/02/22/auto-workers-union-appeals-defeat-at-volkswagen-plant-in-tennessee/

    Funny, the UAW involves themselves in the political process all the time. Now they whine when politics comes into their attempts to unionize?

    Lets make a deal. The UAW stays out of politics and politicians stay out of unionizing attempts for the rest of time. Sounds fair to me.

  8. Re: Ragnarok

    Here’s the issue with the accuracy of the legend…. Freyr doesn’t give a fuk.

    He recognizes Geror as being full of shit and dumps her, then drops the sword because it is nothing but a big burden. He rips Thor, Loki, Odin, Freyr, Hermรณรฐr, and Fenrir for their drama and stupidity, then finds Beli and Surtr, hands them each a fat joint and suggests they ‘get over it’. Then he goes and takes a nap.

    Everyone gets wrapped up in drama and bullshit while Freyr sleeps peacefully. …except Beli and Surtr, because they are too stoned to care.

    T-Ray

    If you get fed up enough to actually consider the move there are some pretty good medical facilities in both states. Great Falls or Billings may be the best for you, in Montana, if you still need to work in the petroleum industry. I am hearing huge potential drilling in the Great Falls, east slope, region in coming years. Missoula has some pretty good experts as well.

    While the facilities may not seem as large or extensive, the expertise of the Docs is far higher than most expect. Because they are Docs who got fed up and moved to either State for the lifestyle and to escape either NY or CA. Many actually travel back and forth from So. Nevada or LA/SF areas to practice in both.

    Another good spot would be the Coeur d’Alene, ID/Spokane, WA area. Neighboring towns with lots of people and considerable medical facilities and expertise between them.

    And Seattle is only 5 hours away for the big stuff.

    I know the Kids can be a big thing. Not just the help they provide. Having to deal with that myself. I am anxious to get back to Montana. Spousal Unit Leader is suddenly balking because other places are “closer” to the kids. I might have to leave her behind, LOL.

    • Thanks for the info. I am a year older than D13 so could retire now but am having too much fun working. We roll out our new instrument next week in Chicago. I have high hopes for it. I will be attending the trade show and explaining it to customers. I plan on working for 2 or 3 more years at least although I have told work to start looking for a replacement. The problem is my range of skills are hard to replace in one person.

      If it wasn’t for the stupid politics and taxes here in CA, this would be an ideal spot to retire. The legislature is considering adding a gas “carbon” tax of $0.15 to $0.24/gal. The money would be used for transportation projects and to provide an income tax credit to the poor. Another over tax everyone to rebate the money and buy votes scheme. I should be happy. Obama is going to save me $8K in fuel costs so this is a piddling little amount compared to that.

    • Ain’t that the truth.

      A few years ago, we tried to by a chemistry set for homeschooling our daughter.

      It came – sans chemicals. To get the chemicals for the kit, we needed a license, which we were told probably wouldn’t be granted as some of the chemicals could be used for explosives. We are talking about needing less then a half a pill bottle – but there was no quantity limits so it was the same requirement if we needed a truck load.

      Nanny state, and it is and will get far worse before it gets better.

      • Yeah…I remember getting a chemistry set for Christmas…had all kinds of chemicals….took my instruction booklet…went to my bedroom….made indelible black ink….then promptly spilled it down the side of my dresser and got the carpet. Not wanting to tell the parents…made some ink eradicator…..promptly bleached the carpet and took the finish off the wood…( real wood, not this fake crap that is out there )….then tried to hide it……

        That did not work and later that day I got a pretty good whoopin’ with a leather belt….not for making and spilling ink….but for not being honest and telling the parents. I remember taking the test tubes, dropping little chucks of sodium into the water filled test tube…putting the cork in it…..watching the build up inside and shooting a cork across the room.

        Ahhh……..the memories of my chemistry set….it is legal to buy pot in Colorado…but try to by a tube of Testors model glue. Strange times we live in today.

        How is the arm, sir?

        • We built rockets in HS. I don’t mean the Estes kind. Our biggest was 5′ tall. I machined the nozzle for it in shop class. For another rocket, we cast an Al nose cone and machined in shop. It had to big enough to accept a 5′ silk parachute. We launched the 5′ in a field one summer day after writing to the FAA for air clearance which we got. It went out of sight. From the timing we think it went at least 5000′. It came straight down and buried itself 5′ deep in a corn field. We ordered the fuel (Zn & S) through the local drug store. Most of the town new what we were doing, so when we launched we had an audience. Now we would be considered delinquents. In fact we were the nerds.

          • When we were kids, we were either boys or girls. Now we have a president that rides a girly bike with a girly helmet on. Bunch of pussy’s if you ask me!

  12. California? Apparently you didn’t get the memo that Obama used California as collateral for our debt. BWAHAHAHA!

    • plainlyspoken says:

      G, I know this is one of your favorite subjects, but I want to say a bit on it.

      First, lets argue that things become so bad that action occurs. A part of the population decides bloody revolution is the only way to go. Ok, with that realize that not all the guns in private hands are going to be available for use against the government. Why?

      1. Before it gets to the point of fighting the government some of those many guns will have already been confiscated or turned in by “law abiding” citizens when the government tries to get their hands on them.

      2. A portion of those guns are in the hands of people really incapable of using them in that manner (they truly have them for home self defense).

      3. A portion of all those guns are in the hands of people who will side with the government.

      4. Some of the people with those guns are no willing to risk confronting the government in armed rebellion.

      I would – off the top of my head – think that 1/3 to 1/2 of all the guns in private hands will never be used against the government.

  13. Dale A. Albrecht says:

    I was just looking through the demographics for my old high school and neighborhood. Busing was suppose to fix the racial segregation of the neighborhoods. Currently the neighborhood is 82% white, 9% Hispanic, 6% Asian or Pacific Islander and 3% Black. Currently the school is 41% white, 31.9% hispanic, 17.6% black and 8.3% Asian or Pacific Islander. In 1970 the school population was over 4K in a 3 year high school and now it is just has 2749 students. Busing did not change the neighborhood mix very much at all. The only thing was when busing was instituted 1/2 the white students were re-enrolled in private school by their parents so they would not be bused into the inner city in LA.

    • Busing was bullshit and done only by parental consent when I grew up. My High School had about 40 black students in the 3 grades 10-12. They were bused in and were great people. We always had great pick-up football games during lunch period. It was a daily event, despite the weather. We all had a blast and made great friendships. There were very few issues with whites and blacks fighting, the one’s I remember were the Jocks trying to show off. Didn’t work well. I wish all blacks would get along like that, and I wish whites, like us, could do the same. White jocks were ASSHOLES.

  17.

    This is about how the Liberals wanted a “one world government” since the 1960’s. NAFTA is just another part if it. It still equate today’s progressives as nothing more that a modern day party of Fascist Nazi’s .

    • Dale A. Albrecht says:

      In the middle of the article was a link to Sen. Schumer wanting to INCREASE the IRS activity challenging the Tea Party groups tax exempt status because they are dangerous to America. The DEMS are not the only ones. The core GOP also wants them destroyed because they are out of the GOP’s control. That is why the GOP congressmen and senators only paid lip service to the wrongdoing then dropped it.

  18. Off the wall thought:

    Why is it that we tend to continue to use the government titles a person held after they are no longer in the position? Why don’t they revert to “Mr”, “Ms”. or “Mrs” once they are gone from office? Seems to me to be nothing more than ego pumping.

    It’s stupid really, like calling me “Deputy” when I haven’t worked in law enforcement in 15 years.

    This is a must read, at least some will know their fate ๐Ÿ™„

    • Remember, FEMA camps are conspiracy theory, just like one world government and one world currency USED to be ๐Ÿ™‚

    • And you believe this stuff. I couldn’t even read it all. Mr Constitution himself, who says the govt can do nothing right..that they have such limited powers…who is ready to draw arms today..believes that the govt is capable of organizing the capture of 300 million..that the govt can then force the 300 million to be at their mercy…so the government can then …what? What is the plan..keep us herded as cattle and line us up for slaughter? or just let us linger til death? for what? their jollies?…What will they…and who are they anyway…what will they be up to as we’re dying? It just doesn’t even compute. I hope these guys don’t get paid for fear mongering. Our government may very well be up to something, but they pretty much bend to the will of the people. If these internment camps were to gain any real traction, the people would raise holy hell the likes we’ve never seen. So G, if you believe this stuff you must not have too much faith in yourself or your fellow Americans to be able to rise up against it. Please don’t tell me this is going to be my fate. I’m not buying it.

      • Now Anita, lets not be hasty. Lets consider that if we choose to use the 3% idea of those who fought against tyranny in the American Revolution it would only be a bit under 9.5 million the feds would have to lock away in the camps. That’s doable don’t you think?

        (please note I say this sarcastically because I don’t see it being done). ๐Ÿ™‚

        Though, come to think of it, on the bright side if the government did this think of how fast the illegal immigrants would flee the US to get away from it? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Anita, you are free to believe what you wish, just as I am. Just because I post something, doesn’t necessarily mean I believe it. Nor does it mean I disbelieve it. The WHOLE article is based on an ARMY field Manual. FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF). This is not made up bullshit from the tinfoil hat wearing idiots out there. It’s an actual government plan. The question is, who will end up in them and how many of them will there be? Also, what would happen to even need them?

        If you do not believe what the government writes, what will you believe?

        • I can apply experience, as 5 camps (2500 people per camp) were established in the republic of Panama in 1994 for Cuban Migrants. This was known as Operation Safe Haven. Two of the 5 camps rioted on Dec 7, 1994 thru Dec 9 1995. I was there, fought in the riots and worked in the camps thereafter (as extra security inside the camps). Over 100 people were injured and 3 killed (two Army and one Cuban). This was never made public. So, for the record, the camps do exist and can be built in a short period of time.

          Any comments on this?

          • Operations Safe Haven and Safe Passage (Sept. 8 1994-March 15, 1995) were operations by the United States Joint Task Force designed to relieve the overcrowded migrant camps at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. Safe Haven established four camps on Empire Range, Panama to provide a safe haven for up to ten thousand Cuban migrants. Safe Passage then returned the migrants to Guantanamo after the crowded conditions could be alleviated. These migrants had attempted to enter the United States illegally by crossing the Florida Straits in the summer of 1994. The operation was conducted under the command of General Barry McCaffrey and the direction of Clinton administration. [1]

            Operation Safe Haven began in September 1994, when the first Cubans arrived in Panama from Guantanamo. Camps were established in Panama as a result of an agreement between the US and Panamanian governments that permitted the Cubans to remain in Panama for six months. Cuban migrants continued to arrive until the camps reached their peak occupancy of 8,600. Of these 8,600, approximately 1,280 Cubans entered the United States in mid-October 1994 as a result of a program of parole entry by the US Department of Justice. In addition, 110 Cubans were accepted by Spain, and 10 by Venezuela.

            Due in part to uncertainly about their future, some of the Cuban migrants became increasingly restless as the weeks went by. The growing tension led to disturbances and riots on December 7-8, 1994, which were quickly controlled by US military members. During the riots, more than 200 US military personnel and 30 Cubans were injured and two Cuban migrants drowned in the Panama Canal while attempting to flee from the camps. There was also considerable property damage, including the destruction of various military vehicles, computers, and telephones.
            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operations_Safe_Haven_and_Safe_Passage

          • Yep, I do have comments.

            We had the same kind of camps in the Florida panhandle with the Cuban refugees of the Mariel boat lift too. And, at times, there were problems in those camps. Also, several people I knew in my unit were assigned to work those camps. They were unarmed and had nothing more than nightsticks to try and control unrest. The camps sucked as far as the ability to house and feed all the refugees as well (as I was told). Plus our government was overwhelmed and worked very slowly sifting through the backgrounds of the refugees – exacerbating the feeling in the camps that they were going to be forcibly repatriated to Cuba.

        • Today I feel like I am the mediator in the center. ๐Ÿ™‚

          G, that manual does exist and I honestly believe it was written for overseas operations wherein we are at war (even “quasi” wars). If you wonder why the DHS is written into the plan I would think it is because we could have prisoners from the foreign countries here in the US, as we did during WW2. Plus I am sure the government would find some “enemies of the state” just as FDR did when he ordered the internment of over 125,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans during WW2.

          It also makes me wonder – if, as you believe – the US military would never act against the US population (which isn’t true since it has before) then the Army wouldn’t be able to pull this off since units would refuse to participate.

          Just some thoughts on it on my part. I could be wrong, but I doubt I am wrong.

          • No problem my friend. The manual exists and much of what is written is also part of FEMA plans (which I have posted the link in the past). FEMA don’t deal with POW’s ๐Ÿ˜‰

            • Besides, it’s nice to know information in case one is swooped up by the men in black and whisked away (sarcasm intended) ๐Ÿ˜† Today, I relax and watch the Great American Race, the Daytona 500. I’ve never missed the 500 since it first aired on TV. It’s usually the only race I watch all year too. As Bubba J would say “Look, their making a left turn” ๐Ÿ˜†

              H-43. During a nonlethal engagement, the use of designated marksmen provides confidence and safety to those facing a riot. If a lethal threat is presented, the designated marksmen in overwatch positions (armed with appropriate sniper weapons mounted with high-powered scopes) can scan a crowd and identify agitators and riot leaders for apprehension and fire lethal rounds if warranted. Additionally, they are ideally suited for flank security and countersniper operations. (See FM 3-22.40.).

              Why you may wonder? Well because I was one of 4 designated snipers on the riot control team I was on from 1980-1982 at Dover AFB, DE. lol. And no, we weren’t their to pick out protest/riot leaders to shoot them. This guy is flat wrong IMHO.

              • I don’t know if you have seen any video from Ukraine, but if he were talking about the Ukraine cops, he’d be dead right. However, we didn’t have the snipers at all, but the location and timing of the event didn’t really allow for one. After things settled, we had teams fully armed on the outside corners and a walking patrol. M-60’s in the towers!

              • The US isn’t the Ukraine. And I would expect the cops here to have the ability to deploy snipers if necessary – so what? Assuming they would be there to kill protest/riot leaders in the way it is being portrayed is inaccurate at best.

                As to 60;s in the towers and armed patrols outside the fences, what were their use of force orders?

              • The US is the Ukraine.
                What happed in Kiev will happen in the cities of America. The cities will burn.

              • The US isnโ€™t the Ukraine. Quite true, but the riots being discussed are within the camps, not all over a city. Applying that, it is normal operating procedure to have snipers, if there is a threat. I’m sure they will know if they are needed.

                Use of Force orders were to shoot kill if they breech the fence. The 60’s were operated by USAF security police. I was the NCO in charge of night patrols in Camp two, the worst of the violent riots camps. Plus, I was the only Combat Arms Technician on site, which put me in charge of those weapons. The guys behind the guns were the best we had, and were all NCO’s.

              • As a note, the use of force orders were at the request of the Panamanian government

              • So how many firearm discharges were there? How many wounded? How many dead?

              • The firearms were deployed after the initial riots. There were no further problems and no bullets were ever fired, even by accident. One note, the Army personnel were not allowed weapons. The only armed personnel were USAF security police and myself.

        • Anita, still waiting: If you do not believe what the government writes, what will you believe?

          • I don’t know what you’re expecting to hear G. They probably have plans to build the next Ark too. Doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. You stated what you believe and told me to believe what I want to believe. Wake me up when the plans come to fruition…when they want 300 million to line up..otherwise I’m not going to get all worked up about it.

            • ROFLMAO! ๐Ÿ˜† Anita, the Army field manual says what it says. it’s real. YOU are assuming that it will be used for 300 million people, which is a very poor assumption, and impossible to achieve. I never said that, nor implied that. 300 million people don’t read SUFA. Is it possible that they may be used in an emergency situation, like a long term blackout over a large part of the country? Isn’t that a better assumption than applying some silly notion that you know could never happen to begin with?

              Rain Delay! Now, what exactly is your problem, that doesn’t include silly assumptions that I have not made?

              • My problems:

                I have cabin fever
                Daytona is on hold
                I’m still looking at a foot of snow, though I see grass at the bottom of fences now
                Sparty fell to the Wolverines today
                GMan wants me to worry about FEMA camps

                I can’t worry about everything at once. I’ll have to start at the bottom of the list and start striking things off.

              • Let’s see:

                Me Too
                Me Too
                Me Too
                Sorry about Sparty
                Don’t worry, just don’t ever agree to go to one if that moment occurs.

                The snow will melt, by July the way it seems. I did get out yesterday and had a great Prime Rib dinner with Pops. Delicious! ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Another Nazi who don’t understand the 1st Amendment. I certainly hope Michigan don’t elect this Hitler wannabe pig: http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/dgreenfield/dem-congressman-calls-leukemia-survivor-who-lost-her-insurance-because-of-obamacare-a-liar/

    • The New Nazi Progressives are attacking the freedom of the press, the freedom of speech and have and will continue to attack the Right to bear arms. Their attack on the 2nd Amendment backfired fantastically. The attack on the Press has been delayed, if not stopped and people will not be silenced, even a mom in Michigan with a life threatening disease.

      The American spirit and the desire to be free is strong! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • G, I am afraid the whole story isn’t being told in the article you posted the link to. I read this in another place yesterday and it seems that frontpagemag.com has left out one little item.

      In a Washington Examiner article is the following:

      Media organizations investigating the ad’s claims note that Boonstra was able to find comparable new insurance under the law; the Washington Post’s “Fact Checker” blog gave the ad “two Pinocchios” (as compared to four for President Obama’s claim that people could keep their insurance under the law).

      http://washingtonexaminer.com/article/2544430

      Of course it slants the story differently when it is a part of the story.

      • Boonstra was on Fox news this morning, live! I tend to believe what she says vs any news outlet. She also stands by her story!

        • G, G, G…..come on man. You’ll believe her completely? Lets be reasonable. And why wouldn’t she stand by her story to keep from being labeled a liar? I believe we know people do that all the time.

          Further, she’s awfully well informed until it comes to the “I don’t know how much” stuff she spouts when her ObamaCare is mentioned. Let her get the facts and prove her point, cause right now it is fairly called in question.

          You believe frontpagemag.com, a news outlet. You seem to be picking and choosing to support you thinking.

          • Actually, the articles are OK, but having seen her speak, I can understand her worries. How much will her meds be now? how much more will her Cemo cost? What’s her deductible? She didn’t mention any numbers, OK, she don’t know the answers. Having a Democrat call one a liar should be an honor ๐Ÿ˜† That’s their only way to reply to the attack. Then threaten the TV station with a letter threatening their FCC license just kills me. The main point of this should be the attack on free speech. The only fact that matters is that the Dem voted for the ACA. Boonstra is not the only person with stories like this either, it is becoming a common theme with many sick people, who I might add, were lied too about their health insurance ๐Ÿ˜‰

            • So now you have switched direction and want to change the discussion parameters from what I wrote and the aspect I talked about? OK, I’ll take that as you raising the white flag.

              As to all the other bits you bring up – break en down and I’ll be happy to discuss them one at a time with you.

      • No response to this G?

        • I responded. I heard her tell her story today, I believe her, period. Her out of pocket expense will skyrocket, according to her, which fits most of the stories of high deductables and copays. Not much else to discuss here really. Her word vs the MSM, I’ll take her side

          • Then you choose not to be open minded when there exists potential information of a biased slant to her story?

            • Sure there exists a potential slant. Great, play by their rules for a change and put them on the defensive. The way the left lies on a consistent basis is deserving of some payback. I believe she lost her insurance, because of the ACA. I believe her costs will rise, probably a lot. I believe she had troubles finding a plan that her doctor accepted. I believe, because I saw the letter, that the Democrat threatened the TV station if they didn’t stop airing it. Shouldn’t we be talking about the latter part? You know, the attack on free speech?

  21. The future of businesses in the US?

    http://www.news4jax.com/news/restaurants-add-health-care-surcharge-to-tab/-/475880/24605728/-/ufhaguz/-/index.html

    The restaurant says the Affordable Care Act surcharge will help the company offset the cost of health care, which will be required for all employees by next year.

    The owners of Gator’s Dockside say this isn’t political — they aren’t for or against the new federal health care changes — they just want to follow the law and take care of their employees.

    Interesting that they NOW want to take care of their employees, but it doesn’t appear they offered any health insurance prior to the ACA.

  22. Hmm, methinks one of my posts ended up in moderation……….

  23. Danica Patrick looks mighty fine today ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Plainly, Down here my friend ๐Ÿ™‚ On the camps issue, it would not be very difficult for the Feds to take over some large farm fields, fence it in, put up a ton of tents and set up an ops center outside the fence. 3 days and it’s ready to take on refugee’s. The feds already have contracts for portapotties and all the necessities.

  25. With California having a crisis caused by a drought, knowing how the Progressive Nazi’s will never let a good crisis go to waste, anyone have any thoughts on how they will take advantage of the California crisis?

    • Dale A. Albrecht says:

      Federal and State government have so distorted the true cost of water in California and elsewhere it will be difficult for them to stop interfering and causing more problems. The average consumption of water per person in the US is 100 gallons. In Europe, it’s 50. They might start there. If the government likes control, put an automatic shut-off when a predetermined amount of water is exceeded per person per houshold. Year round green lawns and non-drought resistant plants cease to exist in areas of California where they do not belong. Historically Flora and Fauna evolves to survive in its given environment. Man has transplanted so many foreign species to where they currently reside to make their yard like the place they may have come from. I’ve tried to go all native plant species in my yard and do not water, yet I have two very large rivers within two blocks of my home. California has 3 desalination plants for a population of 38M. Saudi Arabia, with 27M people in-country, citizens, contractors and illegals have 30 plants producing 50% of their water for all needs. They use approximately 300K barrels/per day of oil to do so. Granted CA doesn’t like oil drilling etc. Many years ago when they had a well fail off Santa Barbara causing a permanent moratorium of off shore drilling. Oil companies have repeatedly said that drilling off shore in CA is no longer required due to the technologies of slant drilling. The well head is well onshore and the oil reserves are well with reach and not risking the ocean biosphere. But CA continues to say NO.
      Honestly, the old biblical adage of “The Lord helps those who help themselves” really should be applied to California. Until they are willing to do what is required to truly maintain their dreamland, cut them off.

    • They already are. More welfare for those cast out of work. More claims of global warming and the mitigation that goes with it. I have not seen any plans for more storage. Some money is being released to fund conservation measures. Brown is still pushing his tunnel and train although the Lt. Gov. is now against the train. This is a political move as he would like a promotion.

      Dale is correct, CA still hates oil. The slant drilling off the coast would work and would relieve the pressure in those offshore deposits thus reducing the natural seeps that occur there daily. We also have shale oil and gas that could be extracted.

      • I think that California is in deep trouble. Between the snail darter and the Nazi Progressives, good people should consider moving if they can.

      • Dale A. Albrecht says:

        Here is an out of the box idea…..how about when you file for both State and Federal income tax, there is a menu that is like the United Way. What organization you would like to see your donation applied to. There was still the box which says, put it where you will need it most, sort of a general fund. Structure taxes the same way. It would be interesting to see where the people really would like to see their money spent. It’s not a tax protest by with holding what goes to Caesar, but directing where it goes.

      • Dale A. Albrecht says:

        The tunnel will not happen. The enviros will kill it. The train will ultimately be stopped. The article by the Lt Gov, saying that the polls show the people are now against the high speed rail and the funds should be allocated to more ressing problems. But he goes on to say its political suicide to buck Brown or Obama, because they want this project to go through. Get it on the ballot. It’s got on by ballot and a vote, rescind it by a “proposition 13” like the property tax revolt against Brown in the 78.

        • Dale A. Albrecht says:

          pressing problems. But also saying in the same breath it’s political suicide to buck Brown and Obama. What about doing what is the “Right” thing to do and not do things that will preserve a perpetual career as a society sucking leech.

    • Any comments from our economy folks?

      • No one, not even Stalin or Mao, intended to collapse their own economy.

        What they do may have that consequence, however.

        • Dale A. Albrecht says:

          Stalin could go nowhere but up. WWI and Lenin destroyed the Russian economy. Stalin’s and Marxist policies just didn’t fix the problem. Mao I don’t believe had much of an economy to start with. WWII and Japan and the revolution saw to that. Taiwan when unfettered boomed. When China disavowed Marxist economics they have boomed. That is not to say that they are not a totalitarian regime though. With Obama, I do believe it is in his blood and education to achieve a collapse of the US economy to be rebuilt in the model of Clower and Piven who he was a students and I believe disciple of. Hillary is a believer in Alinsky whose view is about the same as C & P.

      • Dale A. Albrecht says:

        It is a smoke and mirrors. The stock market is not the economy. It’s just Vegas and Macao on a global scale.The amount of debt that is driving the market to obscene levels will burst. Just a minor increase in T-Bill interest rates will start a down hill slide. With 92M-102M work age people not working is not a good sign. When the agriculture costs really start hitting with the continued drought and fallowing of cropland in CA who are you going to call. All income will go to your housing expense, food, utilities and healthcare and taxes. Nothing will be left for purchasing items like cars, clothes I-pads etal which drive business whether its here or abroad.

    • Dale A. Albrecht says:

      The number of times over the past year or so, of countries forcing the purchase of government bonds and seizing accounts is writing on the wall. Obama in his SOTU address soft-soaped the concept with his My-IRA idea, but it will happen. My bet is May/June.

      • The government will take the peoples money at some point, bank on it. Even if people with held their taxes, the govt would just make more debt. This should be a lesson about leaving govt in charge of debt, they should never have that power. They are addicts now and the DT’s are gonne really hurt.

      • Dale A. Albrecht says:

        As the Fed tapers off their bond purchases the gap will have to be filled by someone. And that will be a captive audience, “The People”. If foreign investors don’t purchase and China is selling off our bonds, then who. Belgium? But then again they are the 14th largest importer of US products.

        • Dale A. Albrecht says:

          Obama says that with this submitted budget its the last of the austerity expenditure plans. What has been the plans over the past several years and what is planned for the next plan. He totally counts on budget and accounting gimics, jail time if we attempted such accounting practices and also the SHEEPLE to not remember what occured before the station break.

          • The silence of the sheeple shows who will suffer the most, them! I will not feel sorry for those that did not prepare because they ignored the gorilla’s ass right in front of them. At least those who have the illusion that elections can fix it are vocal and can see the problems ๐Ÿ˜ก

            • Dale A. Albrecht says:

              Just saw the headline “Nations Governors say Obamacare here to stay”. That included the Republican governors, saying that its the law and we’ll try to do the best we can. Talk about rolling over and copping out.

  26. Nothing will get done. At least, not until the writing is already on the wall. And then it will be too late.

  27. Jason Collins signs with Nets, becomes NBA’s first openly gay player

    Who gives a damn? Why should it be the “angle” on a story that this guy is gay? Is that how bad the world is now that we have to push the gay, bi, trans, or whatever sexual status of someone to show how “normal” they are and that they must be accepted?
