“People Go Round In Circles”. Sandy Hook.

Thanks to Mike for opening this back up again.  I’ll get even with you buddy. :lol:

Please go to Fullscreen for best effect

Here you will see people just going round and round. No interaction with others. Nope just a bunch of loopy people going in a loop. Pretty funny stuff.  :) I mean it’s not funny, but Oh well you know what I mean.

Please note there is hardly any interaction of people. People all seem to be going in same direction. There are no “heads on shoulders” for support.

In Summation. It Stinks as Usual

“ObamaCare” BAILOUT For Insurance Companies. It’s In There!

Obama Has screwed America yet again.      sangry_group_100-100

I have been wondering why the insurance companies have not been screaming bloody murder over this debacle. It seemed to me that with all of these policy cancellations they were somehow going to lose money. Ahh, not so fast. Read on and find out how we have been Screwed yet again.

Obama has hidden in the law a Bailout , Yup Bailout for the insurance companies.

First, Section 1341the “reinsurance” fundcollected from insurers and self-insuring employers at a nifty $63 a head. (Who do you think the cost is passed on to?) This yields about $20 billion over three years to cover losses.
Then there is Section 1342the “risk corridor” provision that mandates a major taxpayer payout covering up to 80 percent of insurance-company losses.

Bailing Out Health Insurers and Helping Obamacare

8:01 AM, JAN 13, 2014 • BY JEFFREY H. ANDERSO
Robert Laszewski—a prominent consultant to health insurance companies—recently wrote in a remarkably candid blog post that, while Obamacare is almost certain to cause insurance costs to skyrocket even higher than it already has, “insurers won’t be losing a lot of sleep over it.”  How can this be?  Because insurance companies won’t bear the cost of their own losses—at least not more than about a quarter of them.  The other three-quarters will be borne by American taxpayers.
For some reason, President Obama hasn’t talked about this particular feature of his signature legislation.  Indeed, it’s bad enough that Obamacare is projected by the Congressional Budget Office to funnel $1,071,000,000,000.00 (that’s $1.071 trillion) over the next decade (2014 to 2023) from American taxpayers,through Washington, to health insurance companies.  It’s even worse that Obamacare is trying to coerce Americans into buying those same insurers’ product (although there are escape routes).  It’s almost unbelievable that it will also subsidize those same insurers’ losses.

But that’s exactly what it will do—unless Republicans take action.  As Laszewski explains, Obamacare contains a “Reinsurance Program that caps big claim costs for insurers (individual plans only).”  He writes that “in 2014, 80% of individual costs between $45,000 and $250,000 are paid by the government [read: by taxpayers], for example.” 

In other words, insurance purchased through Obamacare’s government-run exchanges isn’t even full-fledged private insurance; rather, it’s a sort of private-public hybrid.  Private insurance companies pay for costs below $45,000, then taxpayers generously pick up the tab—a tab that their president hasn’t ever bothered to tell them he has opened up on their behalf—for four-fifths of the next $200,000-plus worth of costs.  In this way, and so many others, Obamacare takes a major step toward the government monopoly over American medicine (“single payer”) that liberals drool about in their sleep.

Laszewski adds, “The reinsurance program has done and will continue to do what it was intended to do; help attract and keep more carriers in Obamacare than might have otherwise come.”  Thus, Obamacare is being aided by having taxpayers subsidize big insurance companies’ business expenses.  (Who could ever have guessed that big government and big business might be natural allies?)

But, amazingly, it doesn’t stop there.  Laszewski writes that Obamacare also contains a “Risk Corridor Program that limits overall losses for insurers.”  So insurers not only don’t have to pay out all of their costs; they also don’t have to swallow all of their losses.

Laszewski explains that if an insurance company expects its costs in a given year to be X, and those costs end up being more than X plus 2 percent, taxpayers will come to that insurance company’s rescue—thanks to Obamacare.  In fact, once an insurance company covers that initial 2 percent in unexpected costs, taxpayers will cover at least 80 percent of any additional costs the insurer accrues.

Laszewski provides a couple of examples to help illustrate taxpayers’ unwitting generosity toward these “participating health plans” (plans sold through Obamacare’s government-run exchanges):

“[I]f the health plan has costs at 110% of the medical cost target [the costs that the insurer expects to accrue], it will be responsible for only 102.4% of the target (a 2.4% shortfall)—only about a quarter of its losses. 

“If the health plan’s medical costs come in at 120% of the expected claim cost target level, the health plan will only be responsible for 104.4% of the target (a 4.4% shortfall)—again only about a quarter of its losses.”

It’s actually only about a fifth in this example, as taxpayers would cover 78 percent of the losses, with the insurer covering just 22 percent.

Importantly, Laszewski (who’s in a position to know) says that “my sense is that health plans, because they are so insulated from big losses, will generally stand pat with their 2014 rate structures for 2015—no matter how bad the early claims experience looks.  I expect that the health insurance industry will be content to give the Obamacare in the fall of 2014, when the 2015 open enrollment takes place.”

In other words, because taxpayers will bail them out (through both the “Reinsurance Program” and the “Risk Corridor Program”), insurers won’t raise their premiums as much for 2015 as they otherwise would in response to the sicker, older risk pools that Obamacare is clearly attracting.  This in turn will make Obamacare look better going forward than it should and will give its government-run exchanges another good swing at the “young invincibles,” who so far don’t seem too enamored with the product that Obama and his insurance cronies are hawking.

All of this puts two things in sharp relief:  First, Republicans should attach a no-bailout provision to any debt-ceiling increase—

as Charles Krauthammer has suggested—  Story Here!

along with a provision delaying Obamacare’s liberty-sapping individual mandate (the delay of which would further undermine Obamacare’s exchanges).  Second, Obamacare needs to be comprehensively repealed in January 2017, not modified or “fixed”—and Republicans need to advance a winning alternative to pave the way to that crucial result.

UPDATE: Senator Marco Rubio introduced a bill in November to stop the part of the bailout that would take place through the Risk Corridor Program.

Are All Democrats (and Some Republicans) GOING TO HELL?

God

The title of this article poses a pretty provocative question. In order to answer it rationally, let’s leave our emotions at the door and apply logic and reason. The first thing we must ask ourselves is whether God actually exists. Most intelligent adults, including virtually all of those who have actually researched and studied the evidence, say Yes, God exists.

Accepting now the view shared by intelligent adults and the evidence experts that God exists, we then have to ask ourselves whether Heaven and hell also exist. Again, most rational and intelligent adults say Yes. The duality of nature also suggests this, as do the witnesses. “Witnesses?” you say. The Catholic Church is replete with visionaries who have been afforded glimpses of both Heaven and hell. These aren’t the fly-by-night mystics or New Age channelers who charge money for their seminars. They are actual eye witnesses whose testimony has withstood years of rigorous scientific investigation.

If we take the side of evidence, the testimony of multiple eye witnesses, and the consensus shared by intelligent and rational adults, and accept the fact that God, Heaven, and hell all exist, we now must ask ourselves what has the Democratic Party (and some Republicans) done to justify our original question.

We know for a fact that the Democratic Party and some Republicans endorse and encourage abortion and the murder of the unborn. No one denies this, not even the Democrats themselves. We also know that the Democratic Party and some Republicans encourage and exploit racism and poverty. No one who has studied the evidence denies this either.

So if God exists – and we’ve already determined that He does – and if Heaven and hell exist – and we’ve determined that they do – then doesn’t it make sense that behavior such as abortion, the murder of the unborn, and the encouragement and exploitation of racism and poverty would call for restitution?

I realize that there are many who believe God to be a benevolent being who neither judges nor condemns. It’s a popular belief among many in the New Age movement. But is it reality or just wishful thinking? Are you going to believe some New Age marketer who makes their living by selling books and seminars, or are you going to put your faith in a book and in a Church that have served as the foundation for not only our country — the country that has done the most good for the most people than all other countries combined — but the foundation of entire Western Civilization?

And is it not also possible that God does not judge, yet remains a being of such pure love that sin is simply not allowed in His presence? Can it be that God does not condemn souls to hell, but that souls choose to be sent to hell by their own free will while here on earth?

A purist could make the case that the Democratic Party (and some Republicans) routinely violate almost every one of God’s 10 Commandments. The Democratic Party has voted to remove God’s name from their platform. (No one denies this). They dishonor the mother by promoting abortion, and they dishonor the father by social programs that remove him from the home, particularly in the black community. (No one denies this.) They violate God’s Commandment not to commit murder, again by promoting abortion. (No one denies this.) They violate the Commandment not to steal by promoting regulations and taxes that take money and property from one group in order to distribute it to other groups. (No one denies this.)

All in all, it’s impossible to deny the sins committed by the Democratic Party (and some Republicans) and they make no attempt to deny it themselves.

Now let’s consider the second word of our premise in this article’s title: all. Are all Democrats going to hell? Even those who only vote for Democrats or fundraise for Democrats? Look at it this way, when we vote for a politician or donate money to their campaigns we automatically become responsible for everything that person does or doesn’t do. Sounds harsh, I know, but how could it possibly be otherwise?

We supported that politician, we put that politician in office, we now bear the responsibility for every action that politician takes. If the politician we put in office resorts to actions that God finds offensive, then aren’t we equally to blame? Kind of puts a whole new spin on the word responsibility, doesn’t it?

So back to our title. Are all Democrats and some Republicans going to hell? I can’t speak for God, but my guess is if they continue along the path that they are currently on, they better load up on the ice water now, because some day soon they’re going to need it.

If you have voted for Democrats (and some Republicans) or raised money for their campaigns and now regret your actions, it’s never too late to change. Ask God for forgiveness and begin to make up for your past sins. He’s waiting for you. He never gets tired of waiting for you. Won’t you ask His forgiveness now?

More Evidence of FAKE Sandy Hook Parents

This video shows another in a long line of alleged Sandy Hook parents smiling and joyful after the alleged brutal slayings of their five and six-year-old children.

This interview was given only one month after the alleged incident occurred. Note how the alleged mother shakes her head side-to-side the entire time she is talking, as if to say, “No, no.” This is a telltale sign of a liar.

This video begins with a five minute talk by its creator and the sound is very faint, so turn your volume up.

Are You a Useful Idiot?

Do you support Barack Obama? How about Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, Dianne Feinstein, or Barbara Boxer? Do you support the Democratic Party at all? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you are what is known in political parlance as a “useful idiot.”

No offense, I’m merely stating a fact. “Useful idiot” is the precise terminology that your own leaders use to describe you. Let me explain.

A useful idiot is someone who believes they are supporting a specific political agenda, while in reality they are supporting its exact opposite. The term was first coined by Vladimir Lenin to describe liberals and Democrats who thought they were working for a utopian society while in reality they were unwittingly supporting Communism. Under Communism, over a hundred million people were murdered in the 20th century. Hundreds of millions more were raped, tortured, enslaved, and beaten.

Today, these same godless Communists, calling themselves Progressives, have taken complete control over the Democratic Party. You can prove this to yourself by clicking on the links below. In fact, I dare anyone reading this to prove me wrong.

What does this mean for you? It means if you support Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, Harry Reid, Dianne Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, or the Democratic Party, you support Communism, pure and simple. And, by logical extension, you also support atheism, racism, intolerance, religious persecution, murder, torture, the eradication of the family, the removal of God from society and the replacement of God by the State, the destruction of Christianity and the Constitution, the end of free enterprise, the oppression of women, the genocide of the unborn, and the removal from society of everything that is noble and good within the United States and within the world. Again, I dare anyone reading this to prove me wrong.

Does this then mean that all Republicans are saints? Absolutely not. Corruption runs rampant within the Republican Party. However, by and large, the vast majority of Republicans in office support religious freedom, Christianity, the Constitution, the family, free enterprise, compassion for the poor, equality for women and minorities, and life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This is particularly true on the state and local level. Again, it’s not every Republican, but it is most.

Don’t expect to learn any of these facts from your daily newspaper, your television news, or your classes at school. Our country’s media and education system are filled with communist progressives and useful idiots, as well. If you think you’re learning the truth about American history from what you see on television or what you hear from your teachers and professors at school, then you are no different from a child who believes in Santa Claus.

Now the question becomes what are you going to do with your newfound knowledge? Are you going to bury your head in the sand like an ostrich and pretend that everything I just said isn’t true? If you’re a coward, then I suppose you could do that. But if that’s the case, then you are worse than a useful idiot. You are a slave who is undeserving of liberty.

Are you going to actually follow the links below and educate yourself? If that is your choice, then I applaud you. You have both courage and an open mind. There’s no shame in having been duped by the Left. Many of today’s leading conservative voices were once Democrats. David Horowitz was raised by communist parents and was once a Democrat. Ronald Reagan was also once a Democrat, before declaring, “I didn’t leave them, they left me.” Reagan was referring to the takeover of the Democratic Party by communist progressives.

Whichever choice you make, whether to expand and educate your mind or to remain a useful idiot, will have enormous consequences, not just for your life, but for the entire world. Please choose wisely.

Expert Testifies to Congress that Obama’s ‘Ignoring Laws’ Could Lead to Overthrow of Government

by Noah Rothman | 12:34 pm, December 3rd, 2013

Cannon

During a congressional committee hearing about the constitutional limits imposed on the presidency and the implications of President Barack Obama’s disregard for implementing the Affordable Care Act as written, one expert testified that the consequences of the president’s behavior were potentially grave. He said that the precedent set by Obama could eventually lead to an armed revolt against the federal government

On Tuesday, Michael Cannon, Cato Institute’s Director of Health Policy Studies, testified before a congressional committee about the dangers of the president’s legal behavior.

“There is one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restrains that the constitution places on the government,” Cannon said. “Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.”

“That is certainly something that no one wants to contemplate,” he continued. “If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws then they will conclude that neither are they.”

“That is a very dangerous sort of thing for the president to do, to wantonly ignore the laws,” Cannon concluded, “to try to impose obligation upon people that the legislature did not approve.”

Comedy of the day: 12 reasons why the POS is one of the best presidents ever

Matthew LynchMatthew Lynch (pic left) wrote this for the “progressive” Huffington Post. He really should quit his day job as associate professor of Education at Langston University to become a comedy writer instead. The words in teal italics are my rebuttals.

“12 Reasons Why Obama is One of the Best Presidents Ever” by Matthew Lynch

1. He is for The People. Say what you will about Barack Obama, but unlike the many presidents who preceded him, he cares about what is best for the greater good. He truly does represent The People. (On the eve of the 2012 presidential election at a campaign rally on November 2 in Springfield, Ohio, Obama exhorted his supporters to “vote for revenge,”)

2. He is for civil rights. He has consistently spoken on behalf of the disenfranchised, the underdog and the most controversial members of society -despite the fact that it was politically unpopular to do so at the time. (On July 6, 2010, former DOJ official J. Christian Adams testified before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights that attorneys in the DOJ’s civil rights division were instructed to ignore cases that involve black defendants and white victims, like 2008 Election Day voter intimidation by the New Black Panthers)

3. He is for one race – the human race. In just a few short years, Obama’s professional achievements and continued demonstration of equality and integrity have done wonders for race relations. America has never been more unified as a people than it has been under the direct leadership of Barack Obama. (See my rebuttal above.)

4. He is for a healthcare system that brings hope and healing to the hurting. Obama’s healthcare plan has allowed uninsured Americans to reap the benefits of a universal healthcare system. (See “President Lucifer wrote the Obamacare regulation to cancel your insurance”) 

5. He is for the middle class. (See “Economist: Most of Obamacare costs will fall on the middle class” and “The disappearing Black American middle class“)

6. He is for women’s rights. (See “What Pres. Lucifer’s IRS did to one woman”)

7. He is for doing away with pomp and circumstance. Let’s be real – Obama is one cool cat. (See “US taxpayers spent 2,422% more on Obama than Brits on the royal family“)

8. He is for the environment. President Barack Obama has taken a forward thinking approach to creating a red, white, blue and green America. (See “Agenda 21 – Behind the Green Mask”)

9. He is for veterans. (See “Obama regime prohibits disabled veterans from owning firearms & ammunition“)

10. He is for peace. Let us never forget that Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 -one of the greatest accomplishments any man or woman could hope to achieve in a lifetime. (See “U.S. soldiers in open rebellion against Obama’s war in Syria,” “President Lucifer’s Jihad,” “CIA expands Obama-approved training of Syrian militants”)

11. He is for education. (See “Government Tentacles Reaching Into Home Schools,” “Obama’s ‘Race to the Top’ Agenda,” and “Obama’s ‘Race to the Top’ Agenda – Part 2“)

12. He is for entertaining the masses. If we have to listen to a president yakitty-yak about this or that for another four years, we might as well pick one with charisma and charm. If you can’t find anything else appealing about Obama, you can’t deny the fact that the guy is an amazing speaker with wit, fantastic comedic timing and an incredible intellect. In fact, I will go so far as to say that when the man does finally retire from politics, he has a rewarding and lucrative job as a stand up comic awaiting him if he so chooses. When’s the last time you heard a president joke about drinking beer, belt out Al Green with poise and precision at a moment’s notice and admit to watching the Kardashians? (I have no comment. This 12th reason is an indictment in and of itself.)

Seriously, what powerful dope is Matthew Lynch mainlining? The same crack that the POS and First Lady of Snot poke up their noses?

Did You Know We Were Royally Screwed Yesterday?

President Obama issued an executive order Friday directing a government-wide effort to boost preparation in states and local communities for the impact of Global Warming.

In Typical Obama/Media collusion there was a Friday afternoon dump of this gem. What has just happened is obama has yet again circumvented the will of the people and Congress who have repeatedly defeated Global Warming legislation.

He has now opened the door to total destruction of our economy. Make no mistake about it. This is their plan.

The obamacare fiasco is part of it. They wanted it to fail. They want the markets in termoil. People getting cancelled with no where to turn but the Gov.

Now electricity will become so cost prohibitive no one will be able to afford big home, hell any home besides what the Gov assigns you like in Russia. NOT GOOD.

Can someone tell me, no really someone tell me just where do his powers end. What do we need Congress and the Senate for if he can just issue executive orders and get what he wants.

Sort of reminds me of the “Enabling act” and Adolph Hitler.

Obama orders government to prepare for impact of global warming

By Dave Boyer

The Washington Times

Friday, November 1, 2013

President Obama issued an executive order Friday directing a government-wide effort to boost preparation in states and local communities for the impact of global warming.

The action orders federal agencies to work with states to build “resilience” against major storms and other weather extremes. For example, the president’s order directs that infrastructure projects like bridges and flood control take into consideration climate conditions of the future, which might require building structures larger or stronger — and likely at a higher price tag.

“The impacts of climate change — including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures, more heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, more severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification and sea-level rise — are already affecting communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies and public health across the nation,” the presidential order said. “The federal government must build on recent progress and pursue new strategies to improve the nation’s preparedness and resilience.”

There’s no estimate of how much the additional planning will cost. Natural disasters including Superstorm Sandy cost the U.S. economy more than $100 billion in 2012, according to the administration.

The White House is also setting up a task force of state and local leaders to offer advice to the federal government, with several Democratic governors having agreed to serve and at least one Republican governor, from the U.S. territory of Guam.

Mr. Obama has a goal of reducing U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 17 percent by 2020, and the Environmental Protection Agency is working on rules that would impose tougher regulations on coal-burning power plants. But much of the president’s climate-change agenda has stalled in Congress, and the administration says the new order recognizes that global greenhouse gas emissions are still rising, making further damage from global warming inevitable.

At a speech at Georgetown University in June, Mr. Obama outlined executive actions he would take to require government and private industry to prepare for the effects of climate change.

( I just love that he gets to tell “Private Industry” how to act)

sangry_group_100-100

“The question is not whether we need to act,” Mr. Obama said at the time. “The question is whether we will have the courage to act before it’s too late.”

Why do D.C. Metro Police wear blue helmets like UN troops?

Here are pics of Washington, DC metro police at our nation’s capital, wearing sky blue colored helmets on their heads:

Sky blue is the color that United Nation troops wear on their heads, whether helmet or beret:

To my knowledge, DC metro police are the only police in the U.S. who wear the same blue-colored helmets as the UN.

Here are pics of the police riot gear of three U.S. cities: Boston, Dallas, and Seattle. Notice that their helmets are all black in color, not blue.

UPDATE (Oct. 17):

My friend, John Molloy, Chairman of the National Vietnam & Gulf War Veterans Coalition, received this email from a retired police officer about this post. Below is his email in its entirety (in italics):

1. Your information is screwed up.  Top photo on the right is the U.S. Park Police (notice the blue stripe down their pants).  Top photo on the left is the Metropolitan Police (MPD).  The METRO Police are not shown, they are the transit authority police created when the subway became operational.  D.C. has almost as many police  departments as New York City!

2. Blue helmets were first utilized by the U.S. Park Police in 1960 for the Traffic Division motormen (I wore one) ~ it was powder blue with a black bottom.  At that time Metropolitan (MPD) police Traffic Division motormen utilized white helmets.  I don’t know when the U.N. started using their blue helmets, but I really don’t care.  MPD later changed from white helmets to blue ones like ours, probably when they had to change their helmets too.

3. For years the U.S. Park Police uniform stood out in appearance over all other police departments in and around Washington, D.C.  The Bell Topex helmets we used were found to fail OSHA standards in the early 1970′s and we changed to the two tone blue helmet you see in the depicted photograph.  The Force then started issuing them to Horsemen & Scootermen and a shortime later they were issued to the whole Force as part of our riot gear to protect our men from demonstrators throwing rocks, bottles and swinging objects (I had a good friend who had his head split open very bad during one of the many demonstrations we handled before riot gear was issued in the 1960′s). 

4. Who cares what color other police departments utilize for their helmets, as long as they protect them from injury from demonstrating & rioting scumballs!

5. I noticed that the Uniformed Division of Secret Service (White House police) changed their pants now to having a blue stripe, probably in hopes that they would be mistaken for our organization (a real police department).

UN gun control treaty is dead in Senate

guns-make-us-less-safe

We so desperately need good news.

Here’s one to get your Tuesday off to a good start!

On April 2, 2013, the United Nations General Assembly approved the Arms Trade Treaty, which is really a gun control treaty.

On September 25, 2013, President Lucifer’s snake-tongued Secretary of State John Kerry signed the Arms Trade gun control Treaty.

But we all know from our high school civics that the U.S. Constitution empowers solely the U.S. Senate — not the executive branch – with the authority to make treaties. This means that the POS and Kerry can sign all the treaties they want, but their signing is unbinding unless the Senate ratifies those treaties. To ratify a treaty, two-thirds of the Senate (or 67 senators) would have to vote “yes”.

A cause for worry is that even before the POS signed the Arms Trade Treaty, on March 23, 2013, 46 senators (44 Demonrats and 2 Independents) already had voted in favor of the gun control treaty.

Kyle Ebersole reports for Conservative Action Alerts, Oct. 15, 2013, that according to a letter written by Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) to Obama, the United Nations Arms Trade gun control Treaty is dead on arrival in Congress’ upper house!

Moran’s letter, a pledge co-signed by 49 of his colleagues, shows the treaty would not be ratified if the vote were taken today as all treaties require the approval of a two-thirds Senate majority for ratification.

Sen. Moran says: “The Administration’s recent signing of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty was a direct dismissal of the bipartisan Senate majority that rejects this treaty. Throughout this process, it has been disturbing to watch the Administration reverse U.S. policies, abandon its own ‘red line’ negotiation principles, admit publicly the treaty’s dangerous ambiguity, and hastily review the final treaty text.”

The letter outlines six cases against the international gun-control agreement and confirms that “the U.S. does not intend to ratify the Arms Trade Treaty, and is therefore not bound by its obligations.”

You can read the senators’ letter (click here) or right here on FOTM as I’ve taken screenshots of the senators’ letter, showing their signatures (which should be interesting fodder for graphologists like FOTM’s pnordman!):
