American Health Care Fiasco

The big Fiasco here is something that no one is talking about. 

Just today the Fox News Out Numbered Panel discussed the Health Care Issues.

No one talked about the one thing that caused the Affordable Health Care Act to fail in the first place.

That is incredible.

The Gorilla in the Room here is simply the marketplace where health care insurance is developed.

Until you address the Insurance Market you will never fix Health Care.

Dangers strangers and the internet

You know there are a lot of dangerous things going on these days and its not happening on the local street corner like it used to be and still is in some places.

There are some places where people are getting taken for their money and there is no sheriff.

There is no one that will help these people that end up loosing often lots of money.   Continue reading…


double standard flap

The geese are hollering, the geese being the liberal media Trying to slant the news and present biased views as truth.

It is of course a lie which most people can clearly see.

Perhaps in the 1950s when the average education level was 5th or sixth grade, we have now evolved, were no longer ignorant, we have the internet and that has been a very powerful tool to expose bias in the media.

One Cable News Channel has made Millions and Millions of dollars presenting an opposing view to the once powerful broadcast media segment.

Broadcast media no longer matters because most Americans use the Internet and since broadcast media has reached its maximum market penetration most people do not even watch it, they watch cable because it usually comes with the internet.

Yet they (The media) continue to speak lies into the ears of willing viewers few though they may be. 

Watch this video and tell me what you see, its so obvious to most people, yet they continue to attempt to insert their view point over the truth.

That is wrong and that is also why traditional journalism has indeed also reached its Zenith in this marketplace.

Newspapers are going under, mostly because paper is getting to be a commodity because of the trees that have to be cut down every year, just to keep printing news papers which is sort of a problem when you consider that the liberal media are confessed tree huggers.

Hey, I love trees too, no problem, but I only consume digital media, so the local news papers are failing as a business model.

So, I guess you could continue to kill trees for a newspaper that will not be read Or make the move to the digital world, its digital now and people communicate about complex issues in forums and in other digital marketplaces.

It is time that we begin to report the news, to be reporters again to stop slanting the news.

That would indeed be an amazing world, a world worth voting for…


Part time employment?

Surviving on minimum wage used to be a difficult process however it is getting even more difficult.

 When you add up the cost of just living not to mention trying to survive, the first question is how can it be done at all.

If you are lucky enough to get a job and keep it, you are likely to find that trying to just survive can be an almost impossible task.

 The average weekly hours a full time employee worked was in the past about 40 to 45 hours this has changed it is now between 28 to 32 hours meaning that now those of the population that were unfortunate enough to be working and trying to survive in a marketplace where everything is more expensive are in a situation where they cannot easily provide food and shelter.

 Sure there are some things you can do to try to help you and your family but those things are not much help in a world where the cost of feeding your family has tripled over the last five years.

Simply stated what used to cost one dollar five years ago now is averaging almost three times as much, what this means is that consumers are having to make poor choices in food and that means the same old thing it did in the past.

So really no matter how much you make these days your money does not go as far and with a reduction in the number of hours that most of these provide it restricts these effected families even more.

What is causing all these problems?

There are a lot of things in play when considering what creates a poor economic outcome for those that are barely surviving on 28 hours a week but the most intensive issue is inflation.

The cost of surviving in this economy has risen at a high rate, food, housing, transportation, insurance if you have a car and can afford the payments. 

When you add it all up it just does not add up to a situation that can be managed.

Lets do some math, 28 hours at $7.25 an hour comes to about $203.00 per week.

That is before taxes…

gross pay $374.77
federal income tax $-18.47
social security tax $23.24
medicare tax $5.43
state income tax $0.00
city income tax $0.00
deductions $230.77
final pay check $133.80

How long do you think you could survive on this amount of money…
