If you work for a health insurance company, you may want to print up your resume and send it into the IRS. I understand they are going to hire 16000 new auditors to oversee your visits to the doctor’s office. Just a suggestion.

I can’t get over the feeling that the passage of Obamacare by the Democrats was the tipping point that will bring down the house of cards that is our economy. I am trying hard not to give into fear, fill the garage with canned goods, buy ammunition and go into the bunker. My biggest fear is not that our way of life is over, but that my kids do not have a chance in hell of doing as well or better. Things are too far gone.
On Monday, Pres. Obama basically decreed that the government will stand in the breech, protecting you from evil insurance companies, disease, and bad life choices. These things will not deprive you of the American Dream. Now I feel that nothing can protect me and mine from the massive spending of the government.
Obama expresses concern about some people’s dreams. Here is what he said Monday night:
“Tonight, after nearly 100 years of talk and frustration, after decades of trying, and a year of sustained effort and debate, the United States Congress finally declared that America’s workers and America’s families and America’s small businesses deserve the security of knowing that here, in this country, neither illness nor accident should endanger the dreams they’ve worked a lifetime to achieve.”
Can we sue the government for endangering the dreams of my children?

OK. You win. Now what? I am pretty unhappy about this. I believe that western medicine will essentially grind to a halt as of tomorrow. No more innovation, no more new drugs, no more insurance companies to kick around. Then what? A government program and 16500 new IRS agents will be responsible for me in my dotage. Now Obama and his minions will be emboldened and try to pass immigration reform and cap and trade. The future is bleak. Government is the answer to every question.

My contribution to the Census is about over. As always, it was enlightening. Glad to be done with it and I wish all those working hard a high percentage of returned questionnaires. I haven’t ever worked for the government until this last year with the Census. Some things I might note are the different rates paid across he nation for the lowly enumerator. In this part of the world, the pay is $11.25 hr. In my sister’s part of OK, it is less by about a dollar. However, in Detroit, where there is high unemployment they receive $20 per hour. Less people to count, higher unemployment, shouldn’t result in higher wages for an enumerator. Once again, the government has strange ideas about how they do things.

Michael Yon runs this post on the abysmal cooperation afforded US troops at an outpost in Afghanistan. I wasn’t planning on going to Spain any time soon, but I won’t now. I know that a personal boycott has little effect on the big scheme of things. Sometimes I get mad and take a stand on what I believe. Hope Spain hears about it and changes their operations in Afghanistan. I hope our troops don’t suffer any more due to this situation.

I continue to wonder why Obama is so tenacious about health care reform/takeover in light of the country’s need for jobs. At least twice he has said that his administration has no other priority above jobs, jobs, jobs. Yet everyday, the focus remains on health care. My feeling is that he is counting on a high unemployment rate to make people feel insecure enough to let the government take over health care. If there are less people employed then less have employer subsidized health insurance, then more feel really vulnerable. High unemployment may be collateral damage to get health care.

I am hard at work in my third stint with the 2010 Census. I am thinking that I can possibly declare my unpaid services as non-profit/charity work on my 2010 Income Tax return. When I was at the bottom of the ladder, I did at least get paid for my time. Now, not so much.
Census 2010 is really messed up. There seems to be too many phases and too much knocking on doors. I am not sure if this is the case everywhere, but I am pretty certain it is going on in TX and OK. The suppositions of the time and effort it takes are way off the mark. There must be better ways to do this and I hope the Census Bureau calls me to get my input to make it better next time.
Seeing how the Census works makes me really wonder if the government should have any more involvement in the heath care area. The Census is the Post Office is the DMV. Only I think the PO and DMV do a better job. What if the government is responsible for vast amounts of our health care and it is run like the Census? The bodies will pile up. Already, the government pays over 50 percent of the health care payments. Let’s don’t give them more. No reconciliation!!! No Obamacare!!!
