Obama wants to Punish those who are Unhealthy

It has been some time since I wrote something. I feel that if America doesn’t get it by now, we are lost to make the same stupid mistake as we did in 2008 when we elected an idiot to run this country. Let me make this extremely clear. The Liberals in Washington, D.C., wants what they feel is right for each one of us. And at the same time, they feel privileged that they don’t need to follow their own advise.

With practically the majority of Americans are obese, Congress is adopting another intrusive way in controlling how we live. This health care reform bill contains a requirement that will penalize any Americans who are fat and unhealthy. It will force companies to reward and penalize any employee to lose the weight, stop smoking, and lower their cholesterol. How absurd is that? This is unconstitutional. Even though the idea may be ideal, the reality of it all is destroying the fundamental fiber of personal freedom.

It is a joke to mandate insurance companies to cover every single American and not denying them coverage if they have preexisting condition. It would be truthful to say it will raise the cost of the premium, but to say it will lower the cost is disingenuous. The fact is that we will eventually see insurance companies and employers make health coverage less affordable for people who have risk factors like diabetes and cancer. This is what Obama wants. That is to force insurance companies out of business, force employers to drop coverage, and make these employees demand the public option.

I had no idea Washington became experts in medicine. I guess they feel people get diabetes because they eat too much sugar or hypertension is caused by eating too much salt. These law makers who are representing us are idiots. These are the same individuals who own a “Mercedes” healthcare plan that is only privy to the fat cats in Washington, D.C. Also, these are the same law makers who would not give up their healthcare plan and accept the identical health plan they are planning to impose on us. What does that say to you?

Personnel responsibility is perfectly okay, but to force it upon us is wrong. There are people who are past that stage of recovery. I do not believe in government in running our lives. Give us the necessary education to provide us the tools to make a responsible change. The government is trying to make this happen over night. It may be easy for the government to raise our taxes, run up the debt, and spend money like drunken sailors, but to fix healthcare overnight is impossible.

There are a few employers trying to do what is right for their employees, but it is on a voluntary bases. The reward is a lower premium for those who succeed in a particular program, but it doesn’t drastically punish those who fail or refuse to enter such programs. In the governments plan, it is do it or else.

Obama Needs to Get Off The Pot and Resolve the War in Afghanistan First

Obama hand picks General McChrystal to lead our 68,000 US troops in Afghanistan as well as the 100,000 NATO forces and now, I think, the president is starting to regret his choice. Not because of leadership, but General McChrystal vocal desire to get the job done.

While Washington is deciding how to define success, General McChrystal is requesting for more troops to counter the onslaught of these insurgents. While healthcare seems to be more imperative than the soldiers dying abroad, I find it peculiar Obama can’t make a decision on a request that was presented back on August 31. That was the day when General McChrystal delivered a report on Afghanistan requested by the president. What does it take to get this president to change priorities? If majority of people are satisfied of their insurance, I think postponing the debate until fixing the problem facing in Afghanistan seems reasonable. It has been over a month since that report and Obama hasn’t done crap to resolve the issue. While Obama is campaigning around America, making a pitch to the Olympic committee, and using tax-payer money to take his wife out to dinner, we are seeing our soldiers dying abroad.
I can’t stand idiotic pundits claiming that the general is being insubordinate. The general is being forthright to protect his troops from harms way. If the issue wasn’t dire, I would think McChrystal would have kept his mouth shut. But since our military is getting spanked in Afghanistan, I think McChrystal has justified his action.

I refuse to accept Washington knowing more than the generals on the battle front. I refuse to accept idiotic law makers in Washington micromanage the war. Ironically, Liberals were on Bush’s butt for doing this, but when it’s Obama, he gets a pass. Hypocrites! I respect the fact that McChrystal rejected Vice-President Biden’s support on changing the strategy in using more drone missile strikes and Special Forces against al-Qaeda. What does Biden know about modern day warfare? I would trust the generals and commanders on the battle front than any liberal jerk with a personal agenda.

I know everybody is tired with the war, but waiting does not prolong a favorable outcome. Public support will erode and this effort will not remain winnable indefinitely. We need to act now. Obama needs to get off the pot and change his priorities because the only success for this war is to win at any cost!

Greenspans says Unemployment to Exceed 10 percent

When you have former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan saying that Obama has dropped the ball on the economy, it would be considered significant. The former Fed Chairman said that he predicts the unemployment rate will exceed 10 percent and will stay there for a while.

On ABC’s “This Week” this past Sunday, Greenspan said that a growing number of Americans who have been out of work six months and longer is a big concern because people who are out of work that long lose skills over such a prolong period.
Now, here is a rare eye opener? When asked if we need to see another economic stimulus to revive a sagging economy, the brilliance of Greenspan overwhelmed me. He said that a second economic stimulus is not called for because more than half of the current stimulus is not effect and because the nature of the recovery is not yet clear.

In other words, why spend more if the first one is not spent yet. Again, no kidding Sherlock! On the other hand, a crisis is a bad thing to waste. So, I wouldn’t be surprise if Obama will try to push for second pork spending stimulus bill.

Where is the Outcry of our Military Dying in Afghanistan

I thought the anti-war critics hated war. It seems I don’t hear any protester banging their drum to end the war in Afghanistan or Iraq. I don’t even hear anymore the deaths of military men and women over there either.

Well, let me inform everybody something that the media has forgotten to report since the days of the George W. Bush era. Our military men and women in Afghanistan are dying and Washington is sitting with their thumbs up their butts. In today’s saga, a well planned attack by 300 insurgents’ isolated and American outpost and “bombed” it. Eight American soldiers and 2 Afghan policemen were killed, with many injured during this fight. The battle lasted all day with the American and Afghan forces coming victors, but with a heavy price.

This ongoing attack to our military force comes in a critical time when Obama will decide to accept General Stanley McChrystal, the commander of the US/NATO force in Afghanistan, 40,000 extra troops or reduce the counter-insurgency operation against the Taleban and focus more on al-Qaeda. This will test the mettle of the Obama Administration. Currently, Obama is trying to define what success is. The blithering idiot should take the definition penned by George W. Bush. A successful war is to win. DUH!

While the Administration is trying to micro-manage the war, about 247 American troops died in Afghanistan this year. Since 2001 at the start of the war, we have seen 874 American troops died under the hands of jihad. Am I going to assume that its okay to see our military die without complaints since Obama is in office? What happen to the American people? Where is the outcry? I call every single American who complained during the Bush era a bunch of idiots and hypocrites.

Jewish Supporters Having Obama's Buyers Remorse

Many Jewish Americans are mostly Democrats and many are Obama supporters. Well, a recent Gallup poll conducted today showed a deteriorating “buyer’s remorse” with regard to their support for Obama.

Since inauguration day 10 months ago, Obama approval rating among the Jewish community has eroding at an alarming pace. According to the poll, Obama’s approval rating dropped from 83% to 64%. That is a whopping 23% decline and that trend is a good indicator that Obama supporters are feeling really stupid right now. Finally, they now understand that experience matter the most than flowery words.

Thank Obama for the 9.8% Unemployment

You should thank Barack Obama and his liberal cronies for their idiotic ideology that spreading the wealth is a good thing for America. Also, let’s include their stupid belief that big government is right for America because we can’t live without them.

Well, this economy is Obama’s problem child and there is no way he can blame this on Bush. The recession began on December 2007 and I don’t think we are in the clear. Unemployment jumped to 9.8% today and this figure did not include the regional manufacturing survey, which showed some deterioration.

This is the highest unemployment rate recorded by the Labor Department since June 1983. Also, we have seen payroll dropped 21 consecutive months. While many liberal economist and the main stream media try to paint a rosy picture, the fact still remain that 263,000 jobs were lost in September. Instead of seeing the bottom of this recession, we are seeing the byproduct of a liberal agenda going bad. This $700 billion stimulus spending bill didn’t curb the unemployment; it went through the roof.

While economist said the unemployment is holding steady, the government revised the job losses for July and August to show 13,000 more jobs lost than previously reported. Let’s face facts. Unemployment is a real indicator for the layperson to understand the economy. To be honest, we are looking at 7.6 million people out of work since December 2007. In total, there are 15.1 million people looking for work in America.

I think it is time for a change. We need to get rid of the Democrats in Congress and suppress Obama’s soft tyranny on the American people.

Obama Got Rejected

It took a while, but I truly believe that Obama has received a reality check. With the economy in turmoil, this current president went abroad to Copenhagen and made a pitch to the Olympic committee to bring the 2016 Summer Games to the United States. Ironically, the president was pitching to bring the Summer Games to his corrupted hometown of Chicago. But alas, the committee listened on deaf ears as Michelle and Barack Obama gave a lackluster speech and rejected their offer.

Michelle said to the committee, “I’m asking you to choose Chicago. I'm asking you to choose America."

Then her husband said, "If you do, if we walk this path together, then I promise you this: The city of Chicago and the United States of America will make the world proud."

I have to laugh out loud how disingenuous the first lady and the current president have become. There are riots, violence, and corruption throughout Chicago. To turn it around and make it safe for tourism is asking for a miracle. I got a bigger laugh when the president got the rejection notification from the committee as the president and first lady board Air Force One back to the United States.

I think now with unemployment at 9.8% and the American people annoyed, the president capital has been tremendously waned. Even the leaders abroad feel that this president is insignificant and arrogant.

As I have always stressed, Obama is way over his head. It tells us that one needs experience to be the leader of this free world, and not pretend to be one.
