An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Did you know that Humana was the only company that we checked out, when we lived in Wisconsin, that refused both of us? Yep. Humana. Why? Pre-existing conditions. Neither of which was a detriment to our well being, basically, because both were under control. One of mine happened to be a misdiagnosis, but that’s beside the point. There were other companies, doing business in the state, that didn’t have a major problem, they just tack on a rider that says they won’t cover anything related to the condition. Um…well…ok…which is why we had to pay, out of pocket, for my TKR. Did you know the hospital cut the bill in half because they didn’t have to deal with the insurance bureaucracy?
If people were allowed to shop around, across state lines, I can be pretty sure than there would be a lot more companies that would take pre-existing conditions, and prices would be competitive. Since some idiot decided that unless a particular company had an office in the state in which you live, you couldn’t have a policy with them. I learned that when I called to change my address after we moved to Tennessee. The guy I spoke to had to check to see if I would be able to keep my policy with their company. We both agreed that was absurd, and also agreed that the government needs to get out of the insurance business. Since moving to Tennessee, my rates have practically doubled, mostly in the last 3 years…since that ridiculous bill was signed, and the items covered have been decreased. I now have riders on my policy that have NOTHING to do with any pre-existing condition. When asked, the company tells me they are complying with Obama’s interference with my coverage. Yay me! So, now, if I get a bladder infection, which I’ve never had a real issue with, no tests, or any care due to said infection, will be covered. One more idiocy, thanks to Barack Hussein Obama and his minions. My policy will only cover 50% of any treatment, so I get a royal kick out of those complaining that their new policy only covers 70%. Wanna swap?
To say that Obama, once again, lied to the American people would just be repeating myself, and so many others, even if the diehards, like Juan Williams, refuse to accept reality. Yes, there are companies who DO accept pre-existing conditions. Some will even cough up some limited payment, although mine isn’t one of them. Thanks to Obamadontcare, many are now losing the policies that covered their illnesses, and will be without any coverage at all, because they can’t afford what Obama KNOWS what they need. Yes, he is most definitely full of caca de toro!
People are not only losing their coverage, they are losing their doctors, their hospitals, and their money. This whole fiasco is not about a website, built by Michelle’s buddies, that doesn’t work and has no security. This is about the control of your life, and well being. Those losing coverage who have cancer will likely die. And after all, isn’t that the point? Get rid of those who are a drain on the system?
The elderly will suffer the most, and die first, thanks to the lack of care that will be offered. Those with diseases like cancer are going to be at a loss. No coverage, no ability to pay the exorbitant costs of treatment. So what, supposedly, Obamadontcare was going to fix, has just made the entire system worse. Doctors will not be participating in this non-care system. Those who don’t retire, will take cash only, which, in truth, will drive the cost of actual care DOWN.
None of this has ever been about health care. This is all about control. It’s time we take back control of our lives that has been stolen by the Democrats in Congress and the White House. If we don’t, there will be even MORE intrusion, and that is NOT what Americans are all about!
How to Help Americans with Pre-Existing Conditions
Amy Payne – The Foundry
Raise your hand if you’ve ever had a health problem.
Contrary to President Obama’s warnings about health care in America, health insurance isn’t impossible for everyone who just raised a hand.
The President spoke—and still speaks—about Obamacare solving the problem of pre-existing conditions that have hindered health insurance for some people. Without Obamacare, he says, these people would be left out in the cold.
In 2011, the Obama Administration suggested that as many as 129 million Americans with pre-existing conditions were “at risk” and “could be denied coverage” without Obamacare’s massive changes in America’s insurance markets.
That’s an emotional—and false—claim.
I don’t know about you, but I’m totally fed up with Obamadontcare, Obama, the Obama administration, the feckless Democrats, and the drooling lapdogs in the media! Does anyone really know who wrote that piece of crap they shoved down our throats? Whose idea was it really? Well, looks like the cat is out of the bag!
His name is Robert Creamer, a convicted felon, husband to socialist Dem representative, Jan Schakowsky, follower of Saul Alinsky, and apparently, an avowed Marxist. THIS is what the administration is shoving down the throats of American citizens without their consent! But hey, who cares, as long as the communists get their way, right?
Canceling insurance plans we liked, making folks buy policies they don’t want, and can’t afford, taking away the doctors we’ve dealt with for years….all part of the plan to create new Dem voters, by way of illegals, and ignoring those who are truly in need. Way to go Obama! You’ve been officially the WORST president in this nation’s history for a while now, and it ain’t got diddly to do with the color of your skin. It’s the LACK of character, your policies, and your arrogance that has pushed you to the #1 spot! Jimmy Carter thanks you!
Obamacare Undermines American Values
Chris Jacobs – The Foundry
We wrote earlier this week about the ways Obamacare discourages marriage and work. These aren’t the only traditional values it undermines.
Obamacare goes against two values that should be no-brainers: prioritizing American citizens over non-citizens, and prioritizing help for the disabled over assistance for able-bodied adults.
Prioritizing Non-Citizens Over American Citizens
Obamacare includes special provisions that allow many legal, non-citizen residents to qualify for federally subsidized insurance and, in so doing, offers these non-citizens more and better coverage options than American citizens.
The law as implemented creates two inequities that put American citizens at a disadvantage compared with non-citizens.
They really do believe we’re that stupid!
1. Max Baucus
“If you like what you have you can keep it.”
2. Harry Reid
“Those fortunate enough to have health insurance will be able to keep theirs.”
3. Mark Begich
“If you have an insurance program or a health care policy you want of (inaudible), you keep it”
4. Mary Landrieu
“While those individuals who like the coverage they already have will be able to keep their current plan. This is a very accurate description of this bill before us – The Patient Protection and Affordability Act. It’s very accurate.”
5. Hillary Clinton
“You keep the insurance you have if you like it.”
6. Nancy Pelosi
“If you like what you have and you want to keep it, you have the choice to do that.”
7. Barack Obama
“If you like your health care plan you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period.”
Obamacare – Pure Evil
by The Bunker
I thought I would be ready for these stories. I was wrong. For the love of God what has happened to this country? What has happened to the men in this country? Is there any empathy left in the hearts of the nations people? What? Is everything just entertainment for the masses? “Oh, look honey, a sick little kid on TV.” “Oh, that’s so sad. Hey what time is Dancing With The Stars on?” Is this what it has come down to? Or maybe it’s, “Damn man, I hope that never happens to my kid!”
Let me make this point CRYSTAL CLEAR, so listen up. The psychopaths who put this health care law together and then dropped it on the country knew this would happen. The democrats, if they are anything, are political geniuses. They use war games in their strategies to cover every conceivable detail. They have backup strategies to their back up strategies. The president, Harry Reid, Pelosi, Valerie Jarrett and all the other commies knew darn well that when citizens lost their health care the logical outcome would be that people would die, including children. These people are so filled with evil they didn’t care and don’t care.
Let me ask you this; if you knew that something you were about to do would harm a child would you go ahead and do it? Of course not! No rational thinking human being with any sense of compassion would even think of causing harm to a child. But, that’s not the case for the commie cabal running our country is it? No, because for them its about getting what they want, at any cost. The passage of this sick health care law is the pinnacle legislation for the democrats. It provides total control over the masses. Complete and absolute power to begin social engineering. That is what communism is all about, social engineering, manipulation, creating a perfect society. If people have to die, so be it. Sick children with cancer would never be productive to the collective.
Read Karl Marx for God’s sake, its all about creating a productive and prosperous working class. The one minor point that is always left out for the masses is that if people are old, sick, feeble minded, disabled etc. their happy days as a productive member are short lived. There’s a pit in an open field waiting for those folks. This is who is running our country people! Harry Reid just consolidated another big chunk of power for the cabal. The lies, the manipulations, executive orders, corruption, hidden bureaucratic rules and regulations, spying, intimidation of the opposition and of the press, it’s a freaking police state and it is killing people!!!
I don’t want to hear any more bull crap from the big talkers on Fox News, or so called opposition party because they are all phonies. If the bastards in the republican party can’t take this child’s story to the floor of both houses of Congress and scream till they are blue in the face at Pelosi and Reid then they are nothing but cowards. Look, this sick child and others like them aren’t going to wait around for the next election. They don’t care how many votes politicians can muster or Obama’s poll numbers. They’ll all be dead before then!!
For the love of God, hasn’t this country killed enough children already?
Judgement day! Judgement day is coming! We are going to pay for the sin of doing nothing.
It will not be the kind and it sure as hell won’t be entertaining.
Isn’t it interesting that when the Republicans threatened to use the ‘nuclear option’, Democrats raised holy hell, spouting how it was not what the founders intended, but now that the Dems are in control it’s exactly what the founders wanted? I honestly don’t believe the Dems know a damn thing about the founders, or the founding, of this nation. They know nothing about what those men, and women, had to put on the line to grant the current crop the liberties they take for granted, and destroy on a daily basis.
This is nothing more than a power grab by the Democrats, as THEY called it back when it was threatened in 2005. Note I said threatened. The Republicans did not grab the power, as I’ve no doubt many believed such an action would have been wrong. The Democrats have no concept of right and wrong, fair, or unfair. I suppose they, falsely, believe they will be in power forever? I’m afraid they are delusional. We are on to their games of lying, cheating, and stealing of elections, through fraudulent votes, and cooking numbers to make themselves look better. IF, on the off chance they pull any more of their games, WE, The People will have a response, and they won’t like it.
They Got Away With It
Amy Payne – The Foundry
As President Obama said, they got away with it.
Harry Reid and the Democrat-controlled Senate got away with changing the Senate’s rules so that they can shove through anything they want without having to worry about Republicans filibustering against it.
Just a few short years ago, then-Senator Obama spoke forcefully against doing what Senate Majority Leader Reid (D-NV) just did. When Republicans talked about a similar rule change in 2005, Obama said (emphasis added):
I urge my Republican colleagues not to go through with changing these rules. In the long run, it is not a good result for either party. One day Democrats will be in the majority again, and this rule change will be no fairer to a Republican minority than it is to a Democratic minority. I sense that talk of the nuclear option is more about power than about fairness. I believe some of my colleagues propose this rule change because they can get away with it rather than because they know it is good for our democracy.
Yesterday, the President’s strong words in support of the filibuster were but a memory, as he declared his about-face in favor of the Democratic majority seizing power. “I support the step a majority of Senators today took to change the way that Washington is doing business,” he said, describing Reid’s power grab in lofty, for-the-people terms.
I’ve no doubt many competent psychiatrists have a lot of explanations why Obama lies, and continues to lie. Me? I think he’s a narcissist, as do quite a few others, including Sam Vaknin, Ph.D., who wrote quite eloquently on the subject before the first election in 2008. No one listened.
What are the symptoms of a narcissist, you ask? Well, I’ll show ya!
- Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
- Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
- Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
- Requires excessive admiration
- Has a very strong sense of entitlement, e.g., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
- Is exploitative of others, e.g., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
- Lacks empathy, e.g., is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
- Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her
- Regularly shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes
Five or more of these symptoms, and you are a narcissist! Methinks the current resident of the Oval Office has all nine. I’m fairly sure there are many others who have many of the same symptoms of narcissism, both in, and out of public office. Personally, I can think of a few people who will NEVER hold public office who suffer from such delusions of grandeur, but that’s another story.
When a president lies, and no one calls him on it, he apparently feels entitled to continue lying. Over the last 3 years, this one has been telling a whopper! 29 different times, even though he knew it was a lie. Why? Well, the above description of a narcissist comes into play, but why is it so easy for him to lie? Some folks say he apologized, but what he did say came no where near a true apology. Well, if you have a brain, and some commons sense to go along with it, you know that wasn’t really an apology. The rest of ya? Drunk on Kool-Aid I guess!
He didn’t say that the rage people feel toward him is justified.
Why does it seem so easy for the president to tell such a gargantuan lie?
- In order to feel guilty about deceiving someone, an individual must have respect for that person.
- He must consider the other man or woman his equal.
- He must believe that depriving the other man or woman of the truth would be a sin because it deprives that person of free will. Because without the facts, competent people can’t make informed decisions.
Well now, let’s break out the big bows and short pants, and listen to what Papa Obama is telling us. It’s for our own good, you know!
It’s quite obvious that Obama has NO respect for America or Americans. We are obviously too stupid to make the ‘right’ decisions for ourselves, and our families, so he must make them for us. We are ALL beneath him. And yes, that includes those fools who still insist he’s not liked ‘cuz he’s black’. God created us all equal. What you do after that? Well, that’s totally up to you.
Nixon (Republican) lied, and had the decency to resign. Clinton (Democrat) lied, was impeached by the House, Did not have the decency to resign, and spent no time in jail for perjury. Now we have Obama lying on a regular basis, and …. nothing.
No Oprah, it’s not his color that we don’t like. If that were the case, we wouldn’t like Allen West, Thomas Sowell, Herman Cain, Dr Ben Carson, Alphonso Rachel, Lloyd Marcus, Tim Scott, David Webb, and so many more who share the same pigmentation. It’s him. We don’t like HIM!
FACT: The representative to the United States Congress from the great state of Texas, in the clueless area of Houston, Shelia Jackson-Lee is stark raving mad and should be carted away in a straight jacket!
…from Conservative Newsroom.
Yep! Obama is making us plain ol’ clingers sick! Sick of his lies. Sick of his incompetence. Just plain sick of him…period! Never in my lifetime have I ever seen such a destructive POTUS, and that include Jimmah Cartah! It’s a shame that so many Americans were bamboozled into voting for this clown a second time, but as many will tell you, it’s the free stuff he promised. Well, I’ve seen how that ‘free stuff’ is making life even worse for those who get it, and those who are having to pay for it. Someone has to pay, so it ain’t free! And those who get, will pay in the long run. Self esteem is something you gain from within, not from others.
The pure hatred of those who actually pay the bills is more than a little disturbing, caused by talking heads, the race hustlers, and most of all, this administration.
There are men and women who want to work, have families they want to be able to support, and can’t. Why? Obama. It’s that simple. Democrats are bad enough, but a Marxist is a tool of destruction that puts the Dems to shame. He does not understand ‘the American Dream’. He has never lived in the real world, never had a real job, and certainly has never had to scrape from paycheck to paycheck. Raised by communists, influenced by communists, and associating with the dregs of society does not prepare anyone for a management position, much less POTUS.
This bill is a reflection of all that is evil in the world. Read it. Try to get private insurance. Hunt for a job. You might get lucky. Then again, likely you’ll have to settle for something that you didn’t train to do, and will have to be taught by someone half your age. Oh, the unemployment rate has gone done, but that’s only because they don’t take into account those who have stopped looking, and are now having to take handouts from the government, competing with those who have lived on the dole all their lives.
The intent is to break us. Not just financially, as a nation, but as people. Break us down till we have no fight left in us. Many will succumb. Others will stand up and fight back. It’s time to stop this madness. It’s time to take away the petty child’s toys. It’s time to return this nation to the Constitutional Republic it was meant to be. It is time.
How Obamacare Hurts You If You’re Looking for a Job
Amy Payne – The Foundry
America is hurting for jobs. And if you’re looking for one, here’s how Obamacare is hurting you.
Obamacare is keeping businesses from hiring.
We already knew that many employers plan to cut workers’ hours to stay under the threshold of Obamacare mandates. This makes full-time jobs—much less full-time jobs with health benefits—harder to come by.
I was looking for some information earlier today, and came across this:
Now, excuse me if I’m shocked over a gubmint site being shut down. IF the site needed constant updating, I could see it, but the reality is, the census has been taken, the numbers tallied, and there is nothing else to do. This is just one more “make life as difficult as you can” Obama tactic. I didn’t actually NEED the site, because guess what…there are other sites, totally unrelated to the DC trashcan, that has the SAME information I was searching.
The gubmint is NOT shut down! 81% of the government is still up and running. The non-essentials aren’t getting a paycheck right now. Excuse me, but if they are NON-essential, why are we paying them? The problem is, they’ve shut down ESSENTIAL organizations. They are paying park police to terrorize veterans, but not the CDC. The fork over millions to NPR, or PBS, or whatever, but can’t pay the earned benefits to our heroes’ families who come back in a flag draped box.
Now I hear the EBT machines aren’t working? There are people who rely on those cards for food to feed their families. PBS? Gestapo park police? We can tell where Obama and the Dems priorities lie. NO, it is NOT the Republicans fault. Learn the truth for a change!!! The Democrats would rather see children go hungry than delay the worse law that has ever hit this country.
Perhaps they are hoping for civil disobedience? Riots? I’m not of the ‘conspiracy theory’ mindset, but I’m starting to wonder.
PBS’s Tavis Smiley made a comment Thursday that every African-American as well as liberal media member should sit up and take notice.
HANNITY: Are black Americans better off five years into the Obama presidency?
SMILEY: Let me answer your question very forthrightly. No, they are not. The data is going to indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category. On that regard, the president ought to be held responsible.
Watch the video and read the whole thing here.
The fact that an extremely liberal “news” personality speaks the truth about the consequences in the black community, is, to say the least, chin dropping. I’m no fan of Smiley, but I gotta give him kudos for stating a FACT that other media types refuse to acknowledge! Yeah, he still carries the pompoms for Obama, but, give him credit….he’s one of the VERY few to see Obama’s warts. Wait a minute… I think he’s the ONLY one. Hmmm…
Isn’t it a shame that we no longer have a media that speaks truth? Obama’s policies have hurt the black community more than any other, and he’s done quite a bit of damage to the entire country. That says a lot about just how bad it is for approximately 13% of the population. You’d THINK that leadership in the black communities would sit up and take notice, but alas…..
Just ONE of the many reason…..I’m 100% sick of these spineless weasels!!
Aside from reopening the government and agreeing to raise America’s debt over the current $16.7 trillion limit, the Republicans made several other concession to President Obama and the Democrats. One such example is that Obamacare would receive funding. The Republicans would get to take out a portion of the president’s signature legislation, but the law would substantially remain intact. The AP reports:
Under a proposal she and other GOP senators have been developing, a medical device tax that helps finance the health care law would be repealed, and millions of individuals eligible for subsidies to purchase health insurance under the program would be subject to stronger income verification.
In addition, some of the across-the-board “sequester” cuts would be reversed under the GOP plan. It has not been determined which specific cuts will be targeted at this time.
In exchange for meeting, at least momentarily, all of Obama’s demands, the House GOP is seeking a “framework” for future negotiations on addressing longer-term budget issues. These negotiations would be led for the Republicans by Rep. Paul Ryan, who is likely to seek a “grand bargain” resolving the nation’s structural budget problems.
They’re stone deaf! They do not hear WE, The People. This was not a negotiation. This was just one more suck up by the RINOs to their new masters. Cowards! Plain and simple. Sniveling cowards!!!
Veterans first fought America’s wars, then they fought the National Park Service over White House-ordered closures of war memorials because of the partial shutdown of the federal government.
Now they’re developing a response to President Obama’s “war” against them: A rally.
The Million Vet March on the Memorials will be held Sunday, Oct. 13, at 9 a.m. Eastern at the World War II memorial on the National Mall, the location where rangers under orders from the White House tried, unsuccessfully, to prevent vets from visiting in recent days.
The announcement said the group Special Operations Speaks is organizing the rally because the Obama administration “is using the government shutdown as an excuse to keep our veterans from acknowledging the debt owed to them and their predecessors.”
“This is unforgivable. It is also unjustified, as no taxpayer funds are spent by keeping these shrines open. We will open them ourselves, if that’s what it takes,” said the group, founded by former Navy SEAL Larry Bailey.
The behavior of the liar in chief, his lackey dimwits in Congress, and let’s not forget about his lapdogs in the media, has been, to say the least, abhorrent! They’re playing with people’s lives, and not a one of them give a happy crap!
They paid the ultimate price serving their country — but their government can’t spare a cent to cover their funerals.
The stooges on Capitol Hill added insult to tragedy Tuesday when it was revealed that the families of four soldiers and a Marine who were killed in Afghanistan have not received a $100,000 “death gratuity” because of the government shutdown.
The cash is meant to cover interment, flights and other expenses tied to the servicemembers’ ultimate sacrifice. It is usually wired within three days.
So now, these families have to come up with the money that is OWED them by the government to take care of their loved ones transport and internment? Are you FREAKIN’ kidding me? Oh, but Obama has no problem keeping his golf course open! Or paying EXTRA park police to shut down areas that are OWNED by the American people!
He blocks Honor Flight vets from seeing THEIR memorial, but allows damn criminal invaders to have a rally on the NATIONAL Mall, that is verboten to CITIZENS!
Yeah…I’m more than just a little pissed off! I don’t wish ill on anyone, normally, but I pray God will give these pigs their just due!
If you can get to D.C. (I wish I could), stand with our vets! Do not let the dictator win!!
Whether you’re curious or not, there are several reasons I haven’t been posting much, even though there is a great deal to post about these days. The personal reasons, I’ll keep to myself for the moment. The political? You really don’t want to read a post laced with ‘colorful metaphors’ as Captain Kirk called them. My anger increases with every revolting action of this administration and the phallic adoring Democrats. The most recent I’ve seen? Shutting down Amber alerts! How many children will be lost due to Obama’s arrogance!?!
Right now, I’m going to have to concentrate on personal issues. Barack Hussein Obama, and every single Democrat POS can burn in hell worshiping their evil master.
I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but first, I would have to have respect for y’all, so I guess it really doesn’t matter, does it. I lost what little respect I had when Nancy Pelosi, aka the Botox Queen, became Speaker, and y’all started running up the debt. I guess you don’t realize that the government is NOT a charitable organization, and stealing other people’s hard earned money to give to other who do NOT deserve it is not charity.
Are you people incapable of rational thought? Yeah…that’s what I thought. No logical function in the mind of a Democrat>liberal>progressive>socialist>commie. I guess the Good Lord figured you wouldn’t use it anyway, so why bother including it in your genetic make-up?
I hear you people blaming the House Republicans for every ill that has hit this country since the turn of the last century. Isn’t it odd that with all the finger pointing, y’all fail to notice the other fingers are pointing right back at you? With Harry Reid at the helm, and Barack Hussein Obama giving the marching orders, you have all failed to honor our veterans. We realize you hate anything associated with the military, contrary to your words. Pretty speeches given at specified days don’t hide the evil you show on a regular basis. I’m sure you’ve heard that actions speak louder than words. Well, your actions PROVE my words.
I can’t put this any more plain….DO NOT **** WITH OUR VETS!!!
Barring people from the very parks THEY fund is ludicrous. But common sense isn’t your strong suit. I don’t see you giving up your fat salaries, that we also fund. Costing people their livelihoods because of your selfishness doesn’t bode well for you. People are angry! No, not just at you, but at the entire federal government. However, since you fail to pass any bills that would fund our veterans, and even refuse to allow them to come to the floor of the Senate, well, I’d say that you are at the top of the list.
Another item that is lacking….leadership. What I see is a whining Harry Reid, blaming others for his shortcomings. Mr Reid, did you get beat up a lot as a kid? You must have, because you are the biggest, whining, bully I’ve seen in all my XX years! Seriously, it’s past time for you and Obama to grow the hell up!
There is a long list of items I could include in my open letter, but I think you should consider those items I have mentioned. Take a good long look in the mirror. Even if you don’t see horns sprouting on your heads, know that the evil inside is starting to show on the outside. Following the dictates of Satan isn’t a real good idea.
