I just learned about a site called Shadowstats which shows a variety of data based on reality, instead of constant government adjustment. They use a consistent calculation of unemployment that was in place in the early 1980s, and based on that, let’s just say Obama hasn’t driven unemployment down to 7%, or whatever lie he’s saying.

I was speaking with people when the president made an announcement concerning a temporary fix to the now troubled Affordable Care Act (ACA) aka Obamacare.

“Putting things in perspective: March 21st 2010 to October 1 2013 is 3 years, 6 months, 10 days. December 7, 1941 to May 8, 1945 is 3 years, 5 months, 1 day. What this means is that in the time we were attacked at Pearl Harbor to the day Germany surrendered is not enough time for this progressive federal government to build a working webpage. Mobilization of millions, building tens of thousands of tanks, planes, jeeps, subs, cruisers, destroyers, torpedoes, millions upon millions of guns, bombs, ammo, etc. Turning the tide in North Africa, Invading Italy, D-Day, Battle of the Bulge, Race to Berlin – all while we were also fighting the Japanese in the Pacific!! And in that amount of time - this administration can’t build a working webpage.”

I do not believe that these changes will have immediate significant impacts on premiums, care, and coverage (especially for individuals working for the government or large corporations). (more…)
Whether one agrees or not with the current policy of sending US ships into harms way, one thing should never be questioned; is the respect for the men and women that stand aboard those ships. Let alone their families which they leave behind, sometimes in a communications “black out” condition. (more…)
