In the U.S. most of us are fed up with the limited, non existing, non improving, health care system. How profitable has it been for hospitals, health insurance companies, private practices in the last 20 years. How do the companies make boo coo money and citizens are avoiding going because of affordability. How does the affordable care act help?
Korengal documentary , Sebastian Junger did the film to answer what drives soldiers to keep going back to combat, war, what they missed, loved about it. He observes brotherhood, the comradery of looking out for each other, wanting to better a situation, when in reality they are destroying towns, cities killing for what ? What is the real reason behind all these never winning endless wars? So I say take on America, not the other countries ! Clean up and follow the money trail , get the money influence out of government, get the turds out of elected positions, restore republic in America back to the people. America is a nicer looking country, we look put together, however we are in a dismal state. We live in a facade of freedom, our country looks great being younger and more modern however we have too many rules and regulations by the people and the companies in power enslaving us. We allow and support these powers to become bigger and wealthier. Soldiers if you love your country start with America first. They( the ones in power) make butt loads of money off you when you are off and away in combat with other countries, when all is instigated here at home. You are making them richer, and richer and they sit back and continue their revolving income, money train, gravy boat. Do not fight abroad, they have agendas, fight for your own citizens at home, they have had war on America for years and its time to stop this destruction of what the original vision was from the founding fathers. War is profit, many citizens never wanted any of them however our republic system failed us as always, the companies, bankers make the rules however we need to shift the power back to us we are the majority, we have the numbers in individuals all across our country.
If you support College Sports you need to look into the universities and all the sports associations bank roll for the revolving sports year in and out. South parks crack baby athletic association episode(season 15 episode 5) explains it best, we are enslaving the players and increasing the pockets of several thieves (Universities, NCAA, USCAA, EA sports,etc.. ). Most the associations are non profit organizations. They are tax exempt like most corporations, they are simply swimming in a sea of un labored money off hardworking athletes , employees. When are we going to stop being, and allowing to be exploited ? The first step is to stop supporting, contributing to all the evil, greedy corporations and organizations.
Ann Richards is my kind of human, we need more of her in our political arena. I watched the documentary that HBO did and what a great piece, footage between the early 80’s and 90’s of her political roles, she was a force, and a real example of an elected official by and for the people. The film is an introduction or a reminder to all of us of who Ms. Richards was. She was a woman and a mother who cared about the community/state she lived in. She was a history teacher who went on to become Travis County Commissioner (1977-1983), Texas State treasurer (1983-1991) and then in 1991-1995 the second female Governor of Texas. As Treasurer she managed the states money, she understood the mismanaging of funds. Texas and its citizens had been robbed for over 50 + years, and she wanted to make it right, the way a true treasurer would do the job. When you follow the money trail you are in the know of where funds are being misappropriated and she was going to put the money back into Texas and its citizens, increasing it, and she did. During the campaigning for governor she questioned former governor Mark White‘s increase in salary from 59,905-812,219 after 4 years in office. The footage reiterates the corruption, bureaucracy that still goes on in state and federal government. She kicked butt in Texas , she did her job dutifully as treasurer and governor. As Governor she was winning for a little while, She fought for health, education, gender, race, everyone was inclusive, all were citizens in her state of Texas (minorities,women, blacks, Hispanics, gays etc…), however special interest groups were not going to stand for it. Enters Karl Rove to promote George Bush (1995) for Governor (Karl Rove has been the mastermind behind republicans being elected for years). She wanted better for her citizens and not the pockets of elected officials and corporations. With the internet at our finger tips, we need to walk away from censored news , all the bull#% propaganda they cram into our ears and eyes. Government officials and corporations want the revolving door, all the players who do favors for big money, for their friends in all the top places, they are all connected folks, moving from one money bag position to the other. If you looked up government state and federal officials, their income should not be millions, their salaries do not go anywhere near that, all that money should be going to the states and improvements for the lives of citizens( health, eduction,jobs,) not theirs.
Solar roadways, what do you think about them ? Scott and Julie Brusaw are wanting to put to use the sun, our recyclables eliminating the growth of our landfields, moving us forward in our environmental way of thinking. Here is a link to their website which will provide information on their great idea.
I went back to work today after staying home last week to heal my back. I was a little apprehensive wondering if I might re injure it, or something along those lines, I still plan on using extra precaution. I want to include a sports massage and a visit to a chiropractor in the near future for my healing regime.
The care of veterans has been neglected for at least 7 decades people, counting back to the Vietnam war. The issues are revolving on VA benefits, they do not get medical treatment or financial help. The U.S sends them out to war, gives them thanks with lip service, and calls it a day. I want to see our congress, government officials, put their uniforms on and go over and fight our battles, wars. Movies, documentaries like Born on the fourth of July, Forest Gump give a glimpse of the lives of veterans. There have been countless documentaries through the years of the neglect, abandonment, homelessness, of our military fellows and ladies.
The resignation of Eric Shinseki is not going to fix the problem, clean up, fix the mess, start appropriating the money where it needs to go. Follow the money trail, Government is swindling the money, there are countless programs , all have to have a budget for the year or years of its existence of operation. You have x amount of men and women deployed you make your budget, war is not a new process, they have had many years to budget.
Here is a list of VA medical facilities in the U.S.
Watched Gasland 2 a couple months ago and it is very upsetting, unsettling the damage we are doing to the many countries, world, water supply and the trail of pollution, not just with fracking but with pumping out states water. If you never watched it you need to, Tapped came out in 2009. The Nestle , Coca Cola, and Pepsi corporations are reselling our lands water supply back to us, and to boot, in a much unhealthier manner by the petroleum casing, the bottles created to hold the pumped water that leak toxins in our bodies. We, all citizens, around the world, need to stop buying bottled water, to stop these companies from selling back our tap water to us. We are making these corporations richer and ourselves sicker. Our tap water is bottled water !
The Ogallala Aquifer is a region of 8 states providing 80% of drinking water supply to those citizens. Each state, or each country, has its own water supply and the fracking and pumping that the gas companies and beverage companies are doing is going to leave us all without water. We have to protect our waters.
This is my recycling bin that I use however I was told that we ship and sell our recyclables to China in bulk. So the garbage that I separate, my government sells to China. How many states recycle their garbage ? How many citizens recycle their garbage ? How much do we ship and how often to China ? There is something horribly wrong with this. I thought recycling was suppose to be a partial solution to garbage in our landfills, and to move corporations into a healthier way for packaging to decompose. It reminds me of my post on December 21 , 2012 regarding the documentary , The human footprint ? We need to come up with a better solution of consumption and how we dispose of it. I want to get to the bottom of the effectiveness and trail of recycling our garbage.
I can not remember which individual made the statement, however I agree and I am restating it. In NASCAR the drivers put their sponsors on their vehicles or on their jumpsuits, well I believe that representatives and senators in congress should have to divulge who they represent, by wearing a badge, which banks, companies, etc…that they back or vote for, regarding big business sponsored interest. I would like to know the laws the representatives , senators, are in favor of by the companies that buy them. Really the whole lobbying strategy disgust me, that big companies pay big money to get the laws they want in place. Most of these laws are not environmentally friendly, consumer friendly, simply not planet friendly. Our congress is bought off by companies, and making horrible legislation, all this is criminal activity that occurs everyday America!
I would like to know, but more importantly, I would like to see lobbyist exit the arena completely in the law making process of our government, money should not be the deciding voice of America, we the citizens should be !
It was horrible to see and hear of the injuries innocent runners and spectators endured from this violent act. I have a lot of questions regarding the pursuit for the two chechnyan brothers, the backpacks did not match the color of the bags found. Did the video capture them? Did we get the right guys ? Are they the only guys or individuals involved ?We were taken on this storyline of guilty from the get go. I feel and felt we were sold a story. I am sorry however I question everything. Eyewitness says suspect was alive , overhearing police talking. eyewitnesses say at the house with the boat, that they heard a lot of gun fire and explosions, the media is saying the the suspect only fired at police, and that they were waiting for him to bleed out because of concerns of suicide vest. I am not buying it.
I have been watching the news and new material, different versions,are coming out.
