The biggest races in the US senate contest may be in North Carolina.

The most expensive election campaign in the history of North Carolina elections has been a huge contention among some voters.

North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan is sitting on the most expensive hot seat in Senate history.

Spending in her Senate race against Republican State House Speaker Thom Tillis topped $100 million, according to the Sunlight Foundation—$10 million more than the second most expensive Senate contest this year in Colorado, and roughly $30 million more than the priciest Congressional race in history before 2014.

Hagan and Tillis have been running neck-and-neck for months. In the latest CNN/ORC poll Friday, Hagan’s lead was within the margin of error, 48 to 46 percent. But the closeness of the race doesn’t fully explain the costs. Across the map, endangered Democrats and Republican hopefuls are locked in competitive contests within the margin of error.

The truth may be something that the media may be finding hard to swallow and in fact with all the media spin voters may be feeling a little beligered with all the switch and bait ads as well as the outrageous contention that seems to be a big part of this race.

With Millions and millions of dollars being poured into this election you have to wonder what the voters will do, many expect to see a different result that what the media is churning out.

That might make for a great Crow Eating News cycle in the coming days but the truth is that the media hardly ever admit when they are wrong.   In the words of Stephen King ” they have forgotten the faces of their fathers”  The media appear to be so out of touch with the people that they cannot identify with the mood of this nation and that is why it is more important than ever to get out and vote.

 


#internet #freedom

Ever just thought about what freedom is?

I mean really consider, right now at this moment in time, what you are free to do.

You could choose to go to a movie, buy popcorn and a coke and spend two hours watching a giant silver screen.

You could choose to watch that same movie at home…

You could go rock climbing or just spend time in your back yard cooking food and having fun with family or friends.

 You could go on a cruise to Alaska, You might decide to go to a NASCAR race or travel to a bed and breakfast and spend time with your most intimate friends.

There is no end to what you might do if you wanted to do that.

But what if suddenly, just to access the internet you had to pay a special Tax?

What if there were a website that you wanted to visit and instead of being able to visit that website all you could get was a blank white image stating that “were sorry this webpage is not currently available” here are several other webpages that are almost like the one you wanted to visit but because we think that what you wanted to view might offend someone, in the world.

We know whats best for you and another thing is this, you no longer control the freedoms for which your fathers fought.

You gave that away…

You allowed a few dull minded people to give away your freedoms and now you have no say in what you may access on the internet, its for your own good after all and after four or five years of only being able to see one perspective on the internet you will not remember your previous freedoms, Trust Us, you wont even miss it.

But you will miss it and the reason that you will miss it is a simple one.

When you perform a search on the internet only those websites that meet strict standards of publication will show up, you will not find small mom and pop business in the search results and so you will not go to those places to shop.

Only certain websites will be able to publish and sell online.

This seems like a science fiction movie right?

Sure it does, but it is about to become a reality, unless, We the People stand up and tell the White House, You will not take away our freedom of use of the #internet #freedom.

Does all this sound like the movie 1984?

 


Medicare Advantage Cuts?

What are you telling me that Medicare Advantage Plans which were introduced in 2004 or perhaps earlier are being CUT up and bended, folded and mutilated.

Actually this is true but what is even more interesting is that back in 2010 insurance companies quietly began to Gut the Medicare Advantage plans…

So while a lot of news organizations may be blaming Obama care, which does not actually exist, because there is no such thing as Obama Care, its really the Affordable Care Act.

check this out.

The Continuing Cuts To Medicare Advantage Are Due To ObamaCare

The Federal Government Has Consistently Cut Medicare Advantage Payment Rates As A Result Of ObamaCare. “The U.S. government has been cutting payment rates for Medicare Advantage as part of an overall reduction in healthcare spending required under the law and as it seeks to bring the program fees closer to the ones it pays through the Medicare fee-for-service program.” (Caroline Humer, “U.S. Health Insurers Brace For New Steep Medicare Cuts,”
Reuters, 2/20/14)

So, really is it Obama Care or is it the Health Insurance companies themselves.

That is something that you should carefully consider.

We know that back in 2006 the Humana Care Gold Plan had a $100 copay for most surgeries, now its 20 percent, So, in reality who is responsible for all these problems.

The Insurance Industry…

Greed, the classic human evil, its always about the money, of course the affordable care act is a bad law, it was passed by tricks smoke and mirrors, (harry reid)

But we still need insurance reform, because our health care is really a good system at least for the most part, the thing is when can we find a way to fix this mess.

That is the question you should be asking yourself when you vote in 2014.

 

THE SENATE DEMOCRATS NOW BEMOANING CUTS TO MEDICARE ADVANTAGE VOTED SPECIFICALLY TO ALLOW THEM IN 2009

In 2009, As ObamaCare Was Being Debated In The Senate, Republicans Offered An Amendment To Protect Medicare Advantage From Cuts. “Senator Orrin G. Hatch, Republican of Utah, has proposed an amendment to block the cuts, which would reduce spending on Medicare Advantage plans by about $120 billion over 10 years.” (David M. Herszenhorn, “‘Medicare Advantage’ at Issue in Senate,” The New York Times, 12/4/09)


Democracy?

Perhaps you have heard some people talk about how were a democracy, but that is not the truth at all.

Thomas Jefferson “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51% of the people may take away the rights of the other 49%” James Madison “Democracy was the right of the people to choose their own tyrant”


Fair Elections

Can there be a fair election when the media takes part in the election process?

I find that there are some serious issues in how the media covers election candidate.

Should something be done to prevent the media from giving free coverage and free PR to certain Candidates while other candidates have to pay for such coverage?

That is just one aspect of how media bias might create an unfair election process.

The democratic process is one that America spreads, it is our answer to most problems we encounter, but have we become hypocrites in allowing the media to become so callus and bias in their coverage that they begin to subvert the truth by allowing lies to become thought of as truth.

When you see on TV producers that have teleprompters and bobble heads that have to read garbage that producers trot out like it is some kind of truth when in fact it is nothing but lies and steaming piles of trash.  It used to be that people were not very educated, back in the 1950s the number of people who could read was much lower than it is now, and the number of people who have internet access and get their new online has increased at a very large margin. 

So, the real question here is this, why have we allowed the media to attempt control what we see and what we hear?

Because for the most part people are just not that stupid, yet we have the media that continues to try to influence what happens and why certain candidates get favorable coverage?  

In a world where candidates have to report every dime they raise in campaign contributions, should it not also be the policy of the law to report all the “free” publicity, they receive as income?

Should congress begin to regulate the media?

I am sure the media would be against this and it is a real problem, because where do you stop, what happens when you have congress deciding what is free speech and what is not, then you have even more problems.

Still we need some serious control over what is becoming something that could cause the election process to become a joke.  Imagine what might happen if everyone in the world began to understand that the media in the US was allegedly corrupt? 

What would be the consequence?

The answer may not be an easy one but it is a problem that we must find an answer to.

 If the media has stopped reporting on the news, and has now joined in the electoral process as no longer a reporting agency but a participant, then we must find a way to stop them from taking over the process.

We need to restore the faith that the public used to have in the media…

People used to depend on the news for what we knew for what we understood, for our future…
Now it has become something less, something different, something that is not what we want.

 

 


shut down of 1995

So wait this is not the first time this has happened, but do we not know our own history?

Or is it due to faulty reporting by so called fair and balanced reporters?

So what is up with the lack of coverage on this topic?

Why is the Media not covering this news story, is it not news that we have faced government shut down before and magically the world did not end? Why is the media not covering this news story and what does that say about a news company that will not cover the news are they really a news company or are they an entertainment company instead.


Is this the end?

Will we survive a Government shut down, some say yes, others say no, but if history has anything to say about it, we know this has happened before, so what is up with all the fear mongering, and who is really at the bottom of all the drama.


Change you can believe in

Crazy yet allegedly it is true, so why and more importantly why would you want to do this.

Billions in Wasted money…

Millions of jobs lost forever.

Ban on Oil Drilling equals price of gas going up and up and up.

This is the change you voted for or is this something else?

In 2008 everyone had hope for a better future for America.

Now its 2 years later, how do you feel about how things have gone?

Are you better off now?
