GENETICALLY ENGINEERING SOCIETY

July 31, 2017

You’ve been had! If you’ve paid attention to life at all of late, you’ve undoubtedly read or heard myriad stories about gays, gays in the military, transgenders in the military, transgender surgery for the gender confused or the like. Perhaps you’ve heard the acronym LGBT-Q and some of the 58 gender pronouns. The list is growing – two years ago I could find an aggregate of only 54.

A bit less loudly played are stories about Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism, suicides, violence, developmental cognitive disorders, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), cancer and many other now common human diseases and disorders.

What can anyone expect the outcome to be when we inject, ingest and inhale all the foreign substances that are forced upon us by our government and those imposed by other entities? Let us not rule out what we put into our bodies by choice. That list must also include what our parents assimilated before conception or during pregnancy that influence the people we are today. Alcohol and tobacco are, or should be, among the least of concerns regarding the young and unborn.

While we are cautioned about any surfaces containing lead based paint that may remain in our homes, outbuildings and antique and foreign made toys, little to no mention is made public regarding other dangerous factors facing us today. We are warned about calorie count in our fast foods. Some foods must carry a label as to where they were caught, farmed, grown, processed or compiled but not how they were treated during their incubation, growth, combining or processing. Often, there are laboratory manufactured substances added to promote rapid growth or enhance flavor that don’t require labeling.

Even organic foods often fall under suspicion. Fruits and vegetables may be grown without pesticides, but does that account for the nutrients added to or that might be inherent within the soil from decades of environmental contamination? What about the ground water supply? PH is not the only factor that must be considered when testing these sources. Is there wind driven cross pollination from nearby polluted crops (like GMO)? Could there be contamination to otherwise pristine ingestibles by insects or animals?

That’s the food portion. Now for the scary part.

Doctors now prescribe synthetic pharmaceuticals to counter the affects of the pills we take to abate symptoms of health problems. If you are taking two or more medications, this might be the case.

We are coerced into injections or transdermal absorption for our health and that of others. Often they contain macabre additives for stabilization and preservation. While it may seem reasonable to treat our bodies against potentially harmful diseases and ailments, these helpful pharmaceuticals can also be harmful.

Over the years vaccines have been stabilized by such unsafe substances as mercury (carcinogen and neurotoxin), methylmercury (neurotoxin) and formaldehyde (carcinogen). They sometimes even contain heavy metals. Granted, the amounts are minimal, but they are cumulative. Even initial exposure may cause long term effects not even perceivable until they are irreversible.

Parents are encouraged to have their infants, as young as 2 months, receive vaccinations for polio. Before they are 2 years old, it is recommended that children undergo inoculations for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR).

Doctors and scientists have a wide range of knowledge regarding human function. It is not unlike the innovative minded to want to alter human genome for research purposes. Out front, we have been entertained by growing human ears and noses on the necks of pigs and mice.

Is there still a wonder how or why so many within the general populace don’t understand what gender they are? Is there still a question in your mind why there are so many social and mental illnesses?

Society is being genetically manipulated!

WHY IS THE GOVERNMENT EVEN INVOLVED IN HEALTH INSURANCE?

June 24, 2017

The easy answer is because the socialists within our government want to control everything you ever worked for. Starting small, they managed in 2010 to conquer 1/6 our economic freedom to advance their agenda.

Unlike the First Law of Thermodynamics (“neither matter nor energy can be created or destroyed”), government entitlement programs can be created, they just cannot be destroyed once implemented. Government programs become indestructible foundation as soon as they are established and there is no destroying them. They can only be built upon. Even studies like “Why Ducks Waddle On Land and Swim Gracefully In Water” or “How to Extend the Life Expectancy of Fireflies for Our Children’s Evening Pleasure” are refunded and extended though no conclusion is found as a 2 year, eight million dollar grant ends with an exhausted budget.

The socialist Democrats of the 111th Congress, saddled the citizens of the United States with an untenable health insurance mandate that now cannot be destroyed. Though the costs to most people is exorbitant, it became an entitlement for some. To take an entitlement away once the slobbering, slurping few have become dependent on it is an impossible task. There are now people caught in the middle who won’t take jobs or accept advancement and a pay raise because doing so could cause adjustment in the premiums required to maintain their health insurance plan.

Before the PPACA was enacted, everybody had access to doctors and other health professionals. The elderly had, and have, Medicare (paid from funds the government sucked out of their paychecks when they were working). Medicaid was, and is, provided for those who cannot afford insurance and it is virtually impossible to find a case where a doctor refused treatment for a sick or injured person.

The rest must have jobs, pay for the health insurance program but cannot afford to take advantage of the service or care offered. The premiums deplete their otherwise disposable income to the point they cannot afford the deductible required to access a doctor. Think about that! Some people are less healthy because the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is not affordable and provides less timely care than was available prior to its inception. But the federal government is now in control of an entire industry and an additional 16.67% of our GDP.

Even with the help of a majority party in both houses, the new administration is struggling to find a way of actually providing patient care with reasonable and affordable insurance premiums and deductibles. They can’t do it. No matter how hard or what they try, someone will cry foul. Then it will cause an uprising and national attention. Somebody might risk re-election.  They, the powers that be, now control one-sixth of the national economy and rather than helping the majority of premium payers, they’ve managed to make the citizens sick…or sicker at least.

Once again our elected officials have inserted themselves where there is no place for them. Doctors, Physician Assistants, insurers and hospital administrators – those actually involved in the health insurance and care industries – should devise a, or some, workable plan(s). When the knowledgeable professionals agree, a presentation to the lawmaking bodies would be in order. This might keep elite but ignorant lawyers, politicians and other bureaucrats from dictating submissiveness to an infeasible program. *Been there, done that!

Even starting with what we had in 2008 – private insurance companies providing health care insurance – and improving on it seems a more practical and logical way of accomplishing a universal health care goal than “Here’s a plan. Confiscate a bunch of money from those who have a few bucks. Keep a large chunk of it (call it administration fees) and throw the rest into a fund to foolishly try and make an infeasible and unwanted plan work. When it doesn’t we’ll just make the people pay more and more until it does.

Thanks to those who mandated compliance with their deceitful schemes, overall public health today is worse than it was just a decade ago. Hospital administrators, doctors and insurers decline participation in the current government system (PPACA) because of the mandates put upon them (program guidelines, restrictions, regulations, taxes, pharmaceutical purchases and pricing, compliance protocols, recording and reporting, etc.). The low and slow reimbursement for their services doesn’t energize their enthusiasm for the program either.

Due primarily to the guidelines of the PPACA (aka Obamacare), many counties across the country have no facilities or physicians available to participate in the plan. This effectively leaves the public wanting for any plan providers within twenty to fifty miles from home.  Yet they are still forced to pay exorbitant sums for insurance.  Without traveling distances, some are forced to pay additional sums for service outside of the plan.

A transition from what is now decreed to be free choice in health care might be accomplished by releasing the people from the government bonds. Allowing states to set up funds to help with excess costs and preexisting conditions could keep costs down for all insureds. This simply means congress must write a law repealing the joke that is strangling those in need of care.

THE ACA LANDMINE: THE TRIPWIRES AND TRIGGERS BUILT INTO IT

March 10, 2017

Many inside and outside of government accuse the former president, Obama, of laying landmines for future administrations in order to fulfill his quest for a more perfect global society; Utopia. The undercurrent of this speculative theory surfaced as a tidal wave with the November, 2016 election when it was realized that Democrats would no longer be able to act unconstitutionally from the power position of the Oval Office. Almost immediately, Obama began executing executive orders and sending regulation requests to create havoc and disorganization as they are implemented.  Some of the directives are considered mini-timebombs to temporarily interrupt governing at irregular intervals and others are far more devastating.

Excavation for the planting of explosives actually began with the highly partisan progressive Democrat controlled House and Senate. The 111th congress was absolutely giddy with the power accessed by deceiving voters and conferred by the presiding Despot-in-Ministry. They began shoveling deep into the Marxist movement of America from their first seating. It was as if they had been given free reign by the ignorant and unsuspecting masses. Regulations rattled from every office of the White House and every agency and department of the federal government.

Republicans, even those who wanted to, had no way of stopping them. If there was a balk to a bill or dissent on any legislation, the questioning individuals were labeled racist, a tag that is virtually impossible to remove. The Marxists simply labeled them, shelved them and continued their journey down the path of national destruction.

One of the largest and most highly explosive land mines is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) aka Obamacare. Over the past seven years, it has proven to offer little Patient Protection, is not Affordable for those who most need it and actually offers less Care than was available prior to its implementation. It Acts as a wealth distribution program.

Designed not to keep the American population well, it was meant to move money from the wealthy and the workers through the government to the poor. In doing so, the workers join the poor and socialism wins. To assure its continued capitalist society disintegration, health care was immediately deemed a “human right”. Because it is impossible to dismantle a government program once identified as a human right, the pressure plate was depressed with the passage of the PPACA. This is what we had to find out after the giant gavel wielding Pelosi and her happy band of Marxists passed the bill that President Obama signed into law on March 23, 2010.

Since that time, there have been unconstitutional changes made allowing this new economic and health wound to grow and fester as the masses acclimate to the costly but only semi-effective antibiotics. Now dependent on the drugs of the social engineering program, it is impossible to effect a quick rehab. The “racist” opposing party was covered in dust. They are still swiping at shoulders and sleeves unable to recognize in the cloud that they can now act as the legislators for whom we voted.

The only way to fix Obamacare is to release the pressure plate. Let it blow. There are simply too many sensitive triggers strategically placed to try dismantle it and find all the primers. Toying with it will only allow the deeply hidden destructive capabilities placed within to explode, individually, creating casualty after casualty.

Yes, some people will be hurt. Most of them are now suffering with tattered bandages on pus filled wounds. They are the people who cannot afford to replace the dressing.  A new and different program with a vision and goal of actual health and health maintenance might provide for cleaning the infection and allow a scab to form as healing begins.

Before any dismantling and rewriting begins, it must be recognized that health care, like economic welfare, is not a “human right”. It is a societal courtesy. It is an earned merit. But, it is not a right! People who feel entitled are simply wrong.  Doctors and other health care professionals are only obligated to care for the injured or infirm by oath; a personal pledge…not government mandate.

A few intelligent heads can remedy the health care system. A small committee comprised of doctors, hospital administrators and insurance professionals  can do a far better job than elected officials without the required knowledge.  They must be mindful that cries from every corner of the nation cannot be appeased.  Trying to do so will injure us all.

* Note to congress.  Clear the ground and take shelter. Blow it!  Stay out of the toxic wind and give us a heads up so we can too. Pick up any pieces that fit together flawlessly and remold anything that has been lost. No malignancies. It must have a completely different look and most of all it must be without detonation capability in 2, 4 or 20 years from now.  Question:  Why does health care, if that’s what we’re really talking about, fall under the jurisdiction of the IRS instead of HHS?

Now, let’s talk about health care for veterans.  They deserve a functioning health care system.  They were guaranteed it on enlistment or commission and they most certainly earned it.

THE ACA CREATED ANOTHER LEVEL OF GOVERNMENT DEPENDENCY

January 15, 2017

There are numerous stories with alarming concern about the possible repeal and replacement of Obamacare. As it is presently, it is a very expensive program that helps very few people but makes some feel it is needed for their own well being. “Free” is addicting, no matter what the cost.

First of all is the incantation that twenty million people will suffer if the failing program does not continue as it is. This is as absurd as “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”. From the beginning, the twenty million people figure is pure fiction, aka fake news in current terms. Its falsehood is easily found in the fact that only fourteen million people even signed up for the program. The fantasy continues with, of the true fourteen million, about twelve million (85%) were eligible for Medicaid or Medicare and were thus covered by working, earning taxpayers through inefficient government run programs anyway. The ACA was just a switch in names that reimbursed doctors for services. So, for billions of dollars per year, some two million people receive actual, not perceived, benefit.

Second is the fallacy about liking and keeping your doctor. Thousands of doctors and many hospitals refused to participate in the wealth redistribution (money laundering) farce from the beginning. The program forced others into bankruptcy and they shuttered their doors. If you were among the lucky ones who liked your doctor, and he or she did cooperate with the extremely restrictive rules set forth by the ACA, chances are great that your wait times for an appointment became exaggerated almost overnight.

Many people report that prior to the inception of the ACA it was possible to get an appointment to see their doctor within a week. Today that time might be as long as six weeks with an average of three weeks. Then, after spending extended time in the waiting room, they find they are hustled through the intake process before a physician assistant (PA) arrives to treat the now severely infected wound or takes some notes and scribbles a prescription to be filled. If necessary, a subsequent appointment is made two weeks hence with the doctor they liked and kept. 

As expressed so frequently over the past 7 years, Obamacare offers little in the realm of medical care.  It is a tax mandated under the guise of health insurance.  It even falls under the authority of the IRS (a tax collection agency), not HHS (the government health agency).

Third comes the fact that many people are not going to the doctor when necessary because the deductible or co-pay is excessive and often not at all affordable after paying $400+ per month for the insurance premium. Thus, the people receiving the most benefit from the program are those who would otherwise have had fully paid government coverage through Medicare or Medicaid.

So, all in all, the panic being created by the possibility that Obamacare might be dismantled and replaced by something different, possibly even better, is vaulting off of anecdotal stories; “I wouldn’t have survived MRSA if it weren’t for Obamacare”. In fact, the insidious infection might have been treated and controlled much more rapidly, more completely and even less expensively if the person suffering with the devastating disease simply went to the ER. Even those with insurance now often wait too long while fretting payment of their deductible.

They tell us that Obamacare is the answer. It was implemented in the dark of night by the Marxists and socialists of our elected body. From the beginning it had little to do with maintaining health or longevity of the American public.  We were even told, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it”, by the very people pushing it despite none of them even knowing what they were sponsoring.

People are now under the belief and assurance (thanks to the propaganda proclaimed by the administration and promoted by their extended media arm) that the ACA is a program commoners cannot do without. They’re hooked.  They’re addicted. They’re afraid methadone will not continue the high to which they’ve become accustomed.

Why was change such a good thing just eight years ago and not now?

OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE BY FOLLOWING THE LAW

October 14, 2016

This is classic. This is beyond the realm of sanity. This is typical Obama despotism.

The federal government is prosecuting Sheriff Joe Arpaio for enforcing federal immigration laws that the federal government refuses to enforce. There is also a second charge for obstructing justice.

These charges are being brought about by a criminal administration that does everything to ignore subpoenas, obstruct, delay and otherwise obfuscate every congressional investigation into their treasonous methods of operation. This is the same administration responsible for “Fast and Furious”, Benghazi, illegal wire tapping, warrant-less searches, the corrupt IRS, authoritarian over-reach and unjustified killings by BLM officers. This is the administration that usurps jurisdiction from the legislative and judicial branches and spends billions of dollars beyond allocations.

This is the administration whose EPA has written ridiculous, unnecessary and costly regulations with which businesses must comply then fines them heavily for non-compliance. This is the administration that over regulates and over taxes businesses out of existence in the name of fundamental change.

This is also the administration that enslaves millions to poverty through welfare by eliminating the possibility of working age men and women getting jobs thanks to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka: Obamacare. This gross wealth redistribution imposed upon the American people does not protect patients. It is not affordable and it makes it virtually impossible for millions of people to get the care they need when they need it. The “insureds” pay premiums of thousands of dollars each year for the privilege of waiting months to see a doctor and then paying thousands more to meet deductibles that were once considered outrageous even for low cost major medical coverage.

So now we have a sheriff who tries to make our country safe and retain our sovereignty by detaining invaders; some of whom are here only to commit crimes and cause harm to others. (For those readers who say most of the illegal aliens only want to make a better life for their families and themselves or they are only doing jobs Americans will not do…I agree wholeheartedly. However, they are also taking jobs that Welfare recipients should be doing to offset their stipends. Secondly, social security fraud is injurious to those whose identity is stolen and used to obtain those jobs).

At this point I have to ask, “Who’s really the guilty party and who should be prosecuted?”
