    There is No Fix: “The Entire System Will Detonate Within the First Year”

    System Detonation

    We’ve got a serious problem on our hands and it’s one that many Obamacare apologists refuse to admit.

    The Patient Affordable Care Act is an unprecedented catastrophe in the making.

    While millions of Americans are losing their health care coverage within weeks, the health care exchanges advocated by Obamacare supporters are in shambles. So far, a little over 100,000 people have signed up. Moreover, what’s important to understand is that none of these people have yet paid a premium, so in essence, those are preliminary numbers. When the monthly bill comes due, we’ll see how many people actually have the money to pay the exorbitant new rates.

    The key problem is one of basic arithmetic.

    Remember, what this legislation does is it robs from Paul to pay Peter. This means that the whole system is essentially a pyramid scheme that depends on one group of people paying the premium for those who are the beneficiaries of this “free” and “affordable” insurance.

    As we know all too well, the new rates for those who have to pay into the system are double or triple their previous insurance premiums – and those newly minted rates actually stand to double again because there is not enough money in the system to provide coverage for everyone.

    We can sum this up in two words: Unmitigated Disaster.

    And just so we’re clear, we’re not talking about these issues rearing their head a decade or so down the road.

    We’re talking about mere months before the whole thing falls apart.

    The scary thing? When it crumbles, the broader economy goes with it.

    The reality?  This number sucks irrespective of so-called “technological” problems.  The system needs 100 times that number to be “stable.”

    It won’t be.

    If they manage to get ten times this number in the next six weeks (the cut-off), which is looking to be a fantasy-land impossibility, the entire system will detonate within the first year and provided they force it to “survive” premiums will see huge increases, likely double or more, a year from now.

    Let me remind everyone that nobody in the lower and middle class has the money to pay not only for the so-called “insurance” under these plans which are running roughly twice what everyone is spending now but in addition if you use the so-called “insurance” the deductibles are frequently double to ten times what you had before.

    There’s no fix for this folks.

    The stock market is ignoring a passed law that will cause these impacts starting January 1st and it’s utterly amusing to watch the S&P up 10 and the Naz skyrocketing today (not to mention the retailers) when you look at what this is going to do to people’s budgets coming into the new year with the holidays coming up.

    The numbers are even worse than I had expected they might be…. especially on the federal exchange side.

    Via Karl Denninger’s Market Ticker

    Americans have lost trillions of dollars in wealth in since the crash of 2008. We’ve seen jobs wiped out to such an extent that nearly one in four Americans can’t find a job. Over 100 million people are living in poverty or right on the edge.

    And now, on top of all that, those who are fortunate enough to have jobs just got hammered with a doubling and trebling of their insurance rates, which for many American families have risen as high as an entire month’s mortgage payment.

    If you think this isn’t happening, you’re living in a dream world. Your politics are irrelevant to the outcome. What your savior in the White House says makes absolutely no difference. If you want to close your eyes and pretend like it’s not happening, then reality will hit you square in the face at a high rate of speed in the very near future.

    The collapse is dead ahead. It cannot be stopped.

    Expect 2014 to be a rough year for America.

      I agree the collapse is inevitable. The both parties should be saying lets get rid of this monstrosity but instead at best they say lets delay it for a year or let people keep their healthcare if they want when we all know this was designed to be a single payer system like a communist country would do it. this is not about healthcare at all but about power over We The People!

        ‘Fairy Tale’ Continues as Obama Proposes Extralegal Obamacare Fix

        “The White House is saying that it will use “enforcement discretion” to allow illegal health insurance plans to be able to still be sold. That is, the Obama administration will not enforce the penalty on individuals for not having eligible health insurance plans and they’ll allow the insurance companies to still sell so-called bad plans — plans they technically can’t sell under Obamacare.”

        “Under the White House’s approach, the Department of Health and Human Services will notify the nation’s state insurance commissioners that they have federal permission to allow consumers who already have such insurance policies to keep them through 2014…”

            had it laid at their feet.

              “””We’re talking about mere months before the whole thing falls apart.”””

              That is, is the people are foolish enough to participate. What will actually happen is that nobody will, except for the very old and sick.

              What will collapse is the peoples (sheep) respect for the corp “law”. Ten they will learn the tiger is made of paper and nothing to be feared.

              Hobama care will backfire in a way the “elites” never considered. It will wake up the masses to not only the crimes of the corp, but as to general impotence as well.

              Just maybe freedom will gain foothold and the revolution can start. First step, END THE FED.

                  I am bewildered at the fact that people still think the administration and Congress are just blundering idiots. Do you really think people at that level get there because they have an IQ of 10? I know that it sounds better than the alternative but reality is this is all planned and has been for over 100 years.

                What to do, oh what to do! Yet one more collapse of epic proportions is coming my way. There are so many that I can’t keep my eyes on all of them. I knew that I shouldn’t have signed up for the Disaster of the Month Club, now I’m up to my ears in catastrophes. Should I cancel my cruise and head for the bunker, or is there still time to get one more great vacation in before it all FINALLY falls apart?

                Sorry Bro, I think you give ‘the sheeple’ too much credit here. If they aren’t awake by now, they will never be. Those that will be awakened by a collapsing governemnt will be the ones waiting on the government to send them food and safety when neither will be forth coming.

            • Fed Up says:

              Hey Dems- What’s your excuse now?
              So the Dems and their liberal supporters condemned the Republicans for being petty by insisting that Obamacare be postponed 1 more year, and when that failed, they were ridiculed for even having the thought…
              Yet….
              NOW, Obama- by his decree, not by a lawful change of congress- decides that the political flack he is getting is too much, and says that he will “allow” a 1 year postponement on Obamacare.
              Why is it a good idea coming from him, but not when it was an issue in congress?
              Why is it okay for him to arbitrarily change a law that legally MUST be changed in congress?
              Only a dictator can change the laws to suit his whims.
              Where is the outrage?
              Where are the staunch liberal supporters on this?
              Where did all of the anti-Republican sentiment go?
              Republicans tried to vote this change to Obamacare MULTIPLE times, and the Senate voted it down over and over.
              Is it now a sound idea, now that Obama has “decided” to change the law?
              Only congress has the power to change laws, and that is by a vote.
              I really, honestly want to know where the Democrats and liberals stand on this blatant usurping of the Constitution.

                They will do what marxists and their lackies always do. They will avoid open discussion of the issue, like every other issue this plauge-ridden farce propagates, then they will attack you.

                They will call you racist, or whatever, and claim the moral high ground. This is how they avoid confronting the truth, and this is how they stifle discussion.

                Then, tomorrow, they will act like nothing wrong has happened at all, when you remind them of the issue, they will call you a liar, etc, ad nauseum.

                This has been the left’s m.o. for dealing with issues for the last century. People’s refusal to stop fearing being called names and being shouted down allows the parasites and their marxist lackies to press on.

                People’s refusal to grow spines and brains, and face the hard cold truth for once in their lives is why this country is about to go down.

                If people do not grow up, and make the hard choices, and do the hard things that need to be done, it won’t be long before this bs about obummercare will be nothing but a pointless bad memory.

                  I’m with you JustMe. I’ve been watching this train wreck since they started their run. I’m really amazed they reelected OBushma. It just goes to show how complacent and brainwashed people have become. It looks like they are going to deed the dregs of this country over to the globalists long before the people think of getting their huge butts off their couches and doing something about it. Hope you guys like blue helmets.

                  JustMe, I don’t know why are you calling them “marxists”. Marxism aims to revolution, and a revolution would mean no more money, no more market, no more banks, no more wage work, no more debt: only globally designed and coordinated human work and a goods production and distribution system based upon user value instead of surplus and exchange value. All over the world, both in so-called “free-market” or “state capitalistic” countries, the democratic or leftist parties are absolutely favourable to money, market, banks, wage work and debt, and in no way they can be called Marxist. Also, take into acount that a marxist revolution would need a global economic crisis a lot worse than this, probably followed by a general war.

                  Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 2 Thumb down 9

                • JustMe says:

                  Orsobubu,

                  The people behind them, are marxists. They have long ago stated their political desires and aims.

                  Are you aware of the 65 points of communist takeover of America, read into the Congressional record? If not, you can search it. Are you familiar with marx’s “10 Planks”, and are you aware that most of those planks are now codified into rules, regulations, and laws? You can search these things out.

                  Of course, they have starry-eyed followers, who believe the dogma, but like all suckers, they are falling for a sales pitch. The people running the game are hardened marxists, with long term agendas and goals. Understand, that to them, money is not just a tool, but a weapon. “Capitalism” is anathema to their goals, and will perish with Freedom. Their own words openly expose their designs.

                  I do not state my position lightly, or un-informedly. My statements are the results of decades of research and observation. There are many good books out there, too many to list, however if you have not read it, a good primer is: None Dare Call It A Conspiracy”. The truth is already out there, all you need do is search it out.

                They stand firmly behind Obama and on our throats, as they always do. In a just and sane world, Obama would be booted out of office along with Reid, Pelosi, Baucus and the other traitors. Since the US has become a Banana Republic, he will take a few more trips at our expense, put aways a few more million dollars, and the MSM will gear up the excuse machine.

                Republicans tried to delay or change the law several times. They were told you cannot because it is the law of the land.
                Not only that. The government is telling people they have to buy this plan. Now they are telling private company’s that they have to sell the plans that they have already cancelled. Who would have ever thought we would live in a country where the government can tell its citizens and companies what to do.

                Where the hell is the outrage? I am so frustrated.

                  That is why we need to vote all Republican in 2014 and take back the senate. We need a lame-duck president again; just like what the dems did with Bush in 2006. Now look what we have had since 2006.

                  If the Republicans don’t take back the senate in 2014, then all of us will be lame ducks.

                  If the repubs win, then we can deal with them later. But for now, the madness needs to stop or at least slow way down.

                According to hospital the Obama rules disallowed the hospital to admit her. She was in a hospital bed but AS AN OUT PATIENT. And so medicare was not obligated to the bill. Insanity in another Obamacare form.

              Definitely. I hope Obamacare collapses with a titanic roar and it takes him down with it. (Is that racist?)Chances are, he’ll be untouchable and I notice all the Republicans are rushing to help save him instead of letting him drown. We are barely able to cover needs now, and we’re doing better than many. My heart goes out to the people who will be destroyed by this guy’s ego.

                This idea that some people are optimistically and foolishly circulating that somehow, the millions of life-time demoncrap voters (the vast majority of whom are minorities, i.e., non-Whites) are going to suddenly go through some kind of ‘Incredible Hulk-Bill Bixby’ physical transformation as a result of this catastrophically destructive obammycare fiasco and then rush down to the polls and start casting votes for Republicans – is an unrealistic fantasy. It is a pipe dream.

                This is never going happen, folks. And, the reason it is never going to happen is because of the simple fact that these demoncrap constituencies are parasites and they will always vote for the party that promises to give them the most free stuff – and guess what? That party isn’t the GOP, at least not yet – although these greasy RINO cockroaches inside the GOP are sure trying their best to turn the GOP into a mirror image of the demoncraps, or if they fail in doing that – try to get amnesty passed for 50 plus million illegal aliens and then give them the ability to import every member of their family tree, which will give the demoncraps a permanent one party dictatorship.

                So, here is a news flash for anyone who thinks these parasites are going to punish the Democrats at the next election: Think again. Parasites do not shift their behavior (or their voting patterns) in the same manner as might productive, self-sufficient, hard working citizens. And, believe me – the leadership of the Democrat party fully understands this fact and therefore, all these articles we are seeing about how the ‘Democrats are in a panic’ over the disastrous obammcare fiasco are nothing more than wishful thinking baloney that is most likely originating out of the GOP establishment.

                Parasites are always going to be parasites, and they will always vote for the demoncraps, and the failure of demoncrap policies do not factor into the equation.

                  You’re probably correct.

                  Voting is not going to solve the problem that democracy has caused. When everyone can vote for this or that disposition of the national treasury and to vote on how much wealth can be stripped from his or her more prudent neighbors, there’s a receipe for disaster.

                  We all have no standing until the law goes into effect. Not a lawyer, but I will bet this means all of the law as originally written and it will not be deemed to be in effect until all the exemptions, waivers and extensions have ended.

                  I will add something to your suit: damages need to be paid personally from the private equity holdings of every politician and bureaucrat who worked for, wrote, lobbied for this law. Anyone on record supporting it should be assessed double and triple such damages. These damages need to be paid personally to every individual American who lost assets, health, jobs, security, peace of mind and trust due to any and all aspects of this law, including all its extraneous mandates and taxes. All future income of the culpable should be garnisheed.

                  There also needs to be a personal acceptance of culpability made by everyone involved. Something on par with the scope of the Nuremburg Trials would be sufficient.

            This is lawlessness on a nearly incomprehensible scale.

            Obama is giving the insurance companies permission to ignore a standing law on the books for political expediency. If Americans do not call for his impeachment in the very near future there is no limit to what he cannot get away with.

            Why should we even follow laws now that the President is so flagrantly cherry-picking, and deciding by himself without constitutional authority, which laws and provisions should or should not be followed?

            “Unmitigated Disaster” is the understatement of the century.

                YH:You make a very valid point. When high placed officials refuse to obey laws, then that will cause reg avg folks to think it is ok for them too to ignore whatever laws they determine as unlikeable or stupid etc.

                Does anybody think it is just a ‘coincidence” that right around the Same time frame that ATTORNY General, Top-LEO federally, Eric Holder testified to congress hearings about Fed Hate Laws for crimes of “Hate”. When Holder told the senators at that hearing broadcast Live on C-SPAN TV, that “NO I will Not file Any Hate crime racial based criminal attacks charges if the criminal perps are NON whiteys…Since I cannot charge any of MY people, like I will charge Whites, for Hate based and Racial motivated crimes, as MY People Blacks I feel have good reason to harbor hate againts whites for past grieviences”(Not eric holders 100% exact words spoken, I am Paraphraseing it here but it is Very Close to his actual orig wordings to the senate hearings, and if anybody needs it I can post a Link to a website With the actual cspan video you can view as Proof holder IS a Vile antiwhite Racist man.)

                Now dones anybody think it just coincidence that shortly after eric holders antiwhite testimony, which basically Absolved every african or mexican and NON white in america from ever being charged for attacks on whites, which in effect is Holder paroting Hobammys attitude of hes NOT going to obey nor Uphold the laws unless he “Likes” that particular law…We began to see Massive numbers of Chimp-outs of violence against whites nationwide and continuing today? And to Date far as I know, NO non whites have as yet been arrested and charged with Hate crime against white folks even when that violence ends with Rape or Gang rape then Death of the white person. Several whites Have been so charged though.

                This is proof that citizens Will adopt the attitude regarding obedience to Laws that their “leaders” have. Soon as african blacks heard that their number-2 HNIC-Primate eric holder testify to no charges for non white blacks, it was Game On! And worsening weekly since.

                Marxist leftist destruction of americas founding class race of whites through, Death by 1000 cut’s.

                Like Posted by “JUSTME” stated, far too many folks so FEAR being called names such as racist and antisemite or hater of: name your choice of protected group minority here. And there can be zero real Fixes untill a vast Majority wake up and rid themselves of all forms of PC-and whitey guilt. Untill then for each patriot that does speak truth regardless what names he or she is called, we will continue to see 10,000 more folks Hide in Fear and let their concerns or voices be Stiffled and silenced.

                So stupid and assinine to so Fear being called stupid names eh…Yet one of The Most effective plans marxist leftists dems and libs has ever done. America today is litterally Saturated with PC correctness and Whitey Guilt. Soon even cement sidewalks will go “Squish” when walked upon from such a deep penetrating Saturation.

          I just realized what Obama just did to his law. There were 100k people who have “purchased” plans so far. But most of them, or maybe all of them, haven’t paid yet.

          So, how many will pay now? Won’t they wait to see if they can get their old plan back?

          The Upton plan goes even farther than Obama. As I understand it, the Upton plan allows anyone to get on these old “substandard” plans, regardless of whether they were already enrolled in that plan. And, Upton’s plan exempts people from the penalty if they buy the old plan. That’s what they said on C-Span this morning if I understood correctly.

          So now, instead of 100k new sign-ups for October, there will be a few dozen sign-ups for October and none for November.

          • Hammerun says:

            Insurance is a product you buy just like a new car, clothes, furniture or a home. When you cannot afford a car, you take the bus. When you cannot afford a home, you rent. When you cannot afford new furniture, you buy used or go without. If you cannot afford food, you use an EBT card. If you cannot afford health insurance you go Medicare, Medicaid or Medical. These programs have been in place for years all a long, but the government wants to get out from under them.
            To some there is something uplifting about going to the grocery store and whipping out a card and paying for their food as apposed to handing over a pile of food stamps as others look on. While this is demeaning to some and motivates some to get a job rather than living this way. This plays right into the Ilks hands. If we feed you, you will vote for us!
            All the while the ilk pass policies and regulations on business and employers that restricts expanded hiring.
            This Obamacare is little more than an elevation of their followers esteem. Living off of entitlements and being proud of it. They will be /have insurance.
            It’s being called insurance to comfort those that utilize it and allows the users to look as if they are financially responsible, when all the time it’s nothing more than just another welfare entitlement.
            The poors med bills have always been paid by one or the other medical entitlements. The only difference was their treatment was conducted in county hospitals and clinics by staff that is working for the government or counties. Not a great just an adequate level of treatment and care, but never the less still treatment.
            As a result, all of us no matter how responsible, buying insurances and looking out for ourselves and our families are going to be subjected to the same generic bargain basement level of treatment even though we have bought good or top rated policies. We will be forced to compensate those that don’t care for their well being and willing to sluff their responsibilities off onto others perceived as being more fortunate. Thinking and being told by guys like Obama, they can afford to pay a little more. Yea, that justifies it alright.
            But the real despicable thing that is running here or what is their underlying motivations. $7to 10 trillion in cash and real assets that are languishing in the feeble hands of people that have all of their lives have worked to save for their post working lives and retirements.
            The argument I’ve heard, why should we expend $300K for a treatment on you when you aren’t going to produce enough revenue to replace it just to keep you alive for a few years? The answer; we paid for health insurance all of our working lives and now it’s coming due!
            Why should the young have to pay for the old?
            Answer; we paid for your coverage long before you knew what it was while you were still shitting in your diapers! That’s why!
            Who’s going to pay for theirs when they get elderly? Refer to the last question and answer.
            The eugenists and the Obama ilk wants that $7to10 trillion freed up and back in circulation doing something other than financially supporting some languishing old fucks, and not benefiting them/ the government.
            It’s much easier crafting policy that will prematurely kill off the useless elderly and grabbing their estates. The government will eventually be going after those estates and not going to the survivors. Bank on that shit!! Remember Obamas little statement “you didn’t build that”, something like that will be used on survivors. Don’t worry about it, you will get over it.
            Those of you that subscribe to the “life is a moonpie and a handout taken from the more fortunate”, there is going to be a downside. All you have to do is keep electing pieces of shit like Obama, Pelosi, Feinstein, Landrue, Reid, McCain, Boxer and a whole host of others that can sing an appealing political song swaying low/no information voters into thinking that killing off the perceived old and unless and theft by the use of law is the way to go. Your in for a eye opening surprise, this shit will work on you too, eventually.
            Life is a path of choices. Choices that have ramifications, once you allow these policies get a foothold in society, it’s going to be almost irreversible and will take a war to get rid of them.
            I won’t see it, I won’t be alive, but my kids and grand kids will. My concern is for them and what they will have to go through caused by lops that want nothing more than a life of government subsistence and a box of BonBons.
            My sole belief is that a majority do people want to be self supporting, independent and proud of themselves and what they have accomplished in their lives. But as long as we have administrations that champion policy that stifles businesses, job creation and expansions. Most will be looking for the 1st and the 15th to get their EBT cards reloaded and standing in some waiting room for hours to see a doctor while having to listen to somebody interpret information in some language other than English. The so called fix is going to be the Medicaid/Government insurance company. That’s the new, your new insurer. You will pay or be taken from you, your premiums there. And you will fall under their limitations and restrictions.
            Good luck in what you’ve been prodded and indoctrinated into wishing for,
            you just might get it!

                It is what I have been saying all along. They are doing to america the exact same plan they did to Russia in 1918 with the communisim They invented and first did on russia back then. The only main differences are that unlike in russia, we in usa have way More and better guns, and were Born free as a Birthright.

                They are simply doing a slower version due to that. Instead of simply sending out thug kommie teams and cheka secret police types to Mass murder your entire family, then call soviet HQ and tell HQ to now send in a new jewish family to become the New occupants of Your home and entire possessions. They know it cannot be done that way in america.

                So the soviet marxist kommies here have kinda re-invented communisim methods and are useing Healthcare tactics, labor and buisness controls by EPA-FDA-USDA-and an entire myrid of fed govnt agencys staffed and headed By fellow traveler kommie brethren. It is just takeing alot longer to fully kommify america than it did in Russia.

                And their end game goals have Not changed. That being to Exterminate the white portion of society nationwide to be able to better control the masses of various non whiteys left. There is now just One main method to halt their kommie efforts and plans and its Not by voteing or marches and protests.

                All marches or mass protests do is to appease the participants of marches and protests. After a march on “DC” or the state capitol, all the mass of marchers have emotional feelings based Feel good feelings…They think “Boy that march/protest sure showed em eh!”

                While most every DC protest march or “Million man march” that occures, the congress and Prez are GONE to Other places before the marchers even arrive in DC!!

                They feel fuzzy warm awhile, untill the Next protest march!

                What Else can be done or Tried with probobly $500 Million spent by the entire Million marchers if they instead did other things with so much cash? Buy lots of ammo? Fund Patriot candadits by the several dozens? Buy Preps?

                Because to me at least a few Billion dollars has been spent and Wasted just for the past several million man protests in DC, and ZERO has been fixed or acomplished other than folks who went have good “Feelings” after doing it and even that fades away fast.

                I rather see partiots use such vast amounts of money to maybe Buy an Entire Mountain and then we all Move to it and set up a patriot town that WE Own. Or anything else thats not simply wasting money to “feel” good temporarily.

                If we keep sitting and hopeing for some “Re-set” all thats going to Really happen is that they are goig to use Hospitals and Dr’s instead of CHEKA secret police squads and bullets to back of heads, to Kill off all of Us.

                And instead of placeing jews into Your now empty homes or business’s, its going to be mexicans and blacks. Otherwise the exact Same basic sovietization plans like Russia 1918 is what to expect soon.

                They wont allow for any total collapse and their loss of power or controls. There is not going to be any Re set by Gold holders or silver holders that plan to “emerge” from a hiddy hole cave or basement. Thats Pure Fantasy dreamed up by Gold sellers geting filthy rich from gold sales to patriots.

                Did Russia 1918 fully collpase when the jewish bolshevik soviet kommies began the revolution tactics? Nope! It colapsed for 1/2 of the White and christian class folks. But the soviets simply Replaced the former russian Kings rulership, after 1/2 dozen hired jewish hitmen whacked the king and entire royal family, with their Own communist jewish rulership. Which Lasted almost 75 years!!!

                RE-set after 75 yrs? Yeah dream on. Not till Putin and several others like him Booted OUT or Jailed the vast majority of soviet jewish bolshevik kommies and TOOK power back for Real Russian citizens again.

                Funny eh that every nation so wrecked by That tribe never gets a RE set try, untill they first BOOT OUT most if not every tribe member and begin the Fixing part.

              IMO,

              All business owners should have standing to sue the corporate interests that created the ACA, under the anti-trust law, for their financial losses due to the implementation of the ACA. Big corps sue each other for their financial losses all the time. For example, Samsung made a tablet PC that looked too much like an Ipad, so Apple sued for patent infringement and monetary losses from that infringement.

              A homeowner sues a neighbor, because his chicken coup and bad landscaping drives down his property value.

              Big oil once sued the govt, because of legislation that caused them great financial losses. Of course it went nowhere, BUT the legislation was changed to suit the profit margin of big oil.

              The federal govt, as well as individual states, sued bog tobacco because they LIED about the ramifications of their product, causing financial harm in the form of medical responsibility and harm to the people.

              The ACA is just another “product” that has caused financial harm to smaller insurers and individuals, as well as most businesses who are not exempt.

              Just my opinion.

It is going to force all of us to look for alternative ways of healing and find out that popping pills is not healing it is just keeping the patients sick and broke. We all have the ability to heal ourselves but will not learn how until we have no other choice. It will also put all the doctors, with their outdated thinking, in the bread lines and looking for a profession that actually produces real results.

            Yep, true to form and creative government accounting, the same accounting that makes the unemployed simply “disappear,” they used the “people who visited and plopped something in the cart but didn’t pay for it (and never will” as their figure for Obamacare sign-ups.

            Even using that HUGE stretch of the imagination, the numbers are dismal for our beloved Comrade.

            The ones who signed up probably got subsidies, so they may keep those plans.

            The only reason to sign up on the exchanges is to get a subsidy. If you weren’t eligible for a subsidy, you could go to the private market and get the same plan they’re selling on the exchange without putting all your personal information on that crappy website. No one with any brains would do that willingly if they had a choice.

          How could anybody in their right mind, vote for something that would change America forever, without ever reading it or having detailed analysis done by outside experts?

          How could the entire congress agree to a rule that only requires a bill to be posted for 72 hours prior to them voting on it? It would have taken many months for financial experts and health care experts do a complete analysis of Obamacare.

          “We have to pass it to see what is in it” has to be the new definition of insanity.

          Folks the only conclusion that any rational person could reach is we are own in every respect. We must plan to take care of our families without government help and with government interference.

              Wouldn’t be great if there was a note beside each encumbant person that is seeking re-election as to whether or not he/she voted for the Afordable Care Act without ever reading the legislation. The note should also state whether that individual voted pro or con. I think the only encumbants that would have a chance of being re-elected are those individuals that read the Bill and voted NO.

              My point was that they were not just going to go along with this sudden change of heart by Obama willingly. Plus, there is a lot of red tape in reinstating the plans, like regulatory approvals from the state, etc. You’ve probably heard in the news that insurance companies and some states’ Insurance Commissioners have been balking at this already.

          Medicare is paid for via a self sustaining tax! We all have been paying out of our wages for years. The Medicare Trust Fund along with the Social Security Trust Fund, totally over 4.5 Trillion, was accumulated over years.

          Then Congress decided to allow itself to borrow money (Misuse) from the Trust Funds, to show a false Budget balance.

          As a result almost, $4.5 Trillion, which is almost 34% of the National Debt, is the Funds borrowed from those two Trust Funds.

          Mind you, if a lawyer tried borrowing from a clients Trust Fund, he would be tried and sent to Jail. But, since Congress makes the Laws, Congress said it was OK to misuse these funds.

Forced direct deposit, instead of a check that I could cash and put where I wanted, I now pay a $12 monthly banking fee where I’m now forced to have direct deposit, that’s the way they control “We The Sheeple” Trekker Out.

          The 100,000 that enrolled have gotten subsidies so we are actually paying for them too. They are not paying for the additional people that are added to Medicaid through this giant expansion. The rest of us taxpayers are with our insurance rates going through the roof!

          i was born and raised in norway until i was 20. I am not sure why so many people think that the USA, with 300 million+ people, could adopt SOCIALISM and actually become successful.

          there is a reason the world, over the years, has become “Americanized.” its because America WAS doing everything right. Capitalism. Competition brings out the best brains to solve the most complex problems.

          anyone who wants to be like Norway, or any other country that the MSM says “has a higher standard of living,” is a fool.
          Japanese, Norwegians, swedeish, all the other countries have people who travel to the US and LOVE IT HERE. because WE ARE NOT SOCIALISTS.

          Norway, Sweden, Finland, Slovenia, Italy, Portugal, Cyprus, Spain, Iceland, New Zeland, Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland: Peaceful nations but got screwed by the bankserts……See the end of the comment. Also Iceland kick the banksters out early and took over their country and are in a good shape compare to others.

          France… Last stage of socialism before a complete communist system.

          HK and Singapor are just the tools to make money for the banksters for now as they have a close ties with China and haven’t been screwed yet like others.

          Israel……Mand made entity which goes back to the soviet union era and the start of Marxism/ Leninism ideology. However every single country above is being controlled by their systems designed and controlled by the masters in Israel, NY and the UK.

          The net is the promoted system via federal reservers and IMF although looks like a capitalistic system but it is getting closer to the new era of communism and this time they are using the name of Progressives, Liberals but I call it the gang of international criminals.

            Bravo, Vicky.

            Obama is many things, but polite, “smooth talking,” and smart he is not.

            He comes from wild, undiscliplined, animalistic urges on his father’s side, and from screwed up trash on his mother’s side. He is a communist, and may very well be the rumored black American who was spotted, cultivated, and groomed for high political office, specifically for the presidency, by the Soviets. He is a practiced and habitual liar. He does not have a humble bone in his body. He is disrespectful to the office of the presidency. He is disrespectful to his audiences, not bothering to use good grammar or to speak with seriousness. He is haughty, apparently believing that he has status and power. He is rumored to be a homosexual, and to have indulged homosexual urges. He has a long history of heavy drug use. He permits foul-mouthed, tyrannical, bad-tempered, unelected staffers to make policy and run roughshod over anyone who disagrees. He relishes the luxury of the presidential lifestyle and milks taxpayers for obscene amounts to spend on vacations, parties and other perks. He is unconcerned with his highly negative image and apparently believes that there will never be a consequence to his never-ending unconstitutional actions. He does not care, or perhaps does not comprehend, the extent to which he is vehemously disliked. He is dismissed by our foreign allies and enemies alike. He’s in this for his, and only his, own gratification and material enrichment while he makes his way toward “transforming” America into a fully communist country.

            His wife and two daughters comprise the poster triplets for America’s biggest snobs, which they see as a badge of honor and as the mark of “having arrived.”

            This will not end in a neat and tidy manner.

      • Here’s the problem…..Under “The Plan”, these people want the “middle class” to disappear. The “president a.k.a frank marshall davis’s bastard son Obama” wants to destroy this country. There is no mistake. There was no “lie” to the country (about the healthcare act). This is all INTENTIONAL people. It won’t be long until this “manchild” will be backed so far into a corner that he will start killing people. Those that do not follow this monster will be eliminated…..not hard to figure out. His boss ( Valerie Jarett ) said that it is time to “punish their enemies”. These monsters want everyone ( including all illegals ) that is young to be covered by as much assistance as possible i.e. disability, food stamps, etc. Those that are older (that no longer contribute) should go away……die. If you don’t contribute, your “life units” ( what Ezekiel Emmanuel) has stated are worth much of nothing. Those that can possibly contribute (the young) are “worth more”…….even if forced into work. Those that are older (Medicare recipients) should be eliminated. Medicare was cut by a half a trillion dollars under the ACA. Medicaid is going forward like gangbusters…..I see it personally every day…

        I hope it does crash and burn, America has become far too full of the entitlement mentality. When you have too many parasites the host must succumb and die. I pin my hopes on the fact that after a major negative event, (civil war, depression,epidemic….), those who survived will not be of the gimms me dat mentality. People to lazy to survive without stealing the gains of the working people should in fact die out. Life is not fair it never has been, however if a person wants to sit around doing nothing and expecting support from the productive,then let them die of their own laziness and stupidity. In fact if I am going to be forced by the Government to su;port useless criminal scum, then I should also be allowed to decide their fate.

        JRS, I’m sorry dude, but I worked in a nursing home for a few years, while I made it through college. I can tell you EMPHATICALLY that, absolutely nobody in a nursing home WANTS anyone wiping their ass for them.

        I got a very small taste of it after I got out of spinal surgery. It feels humiliating and degrading.

        The elderly feel the same way about it, if not even more so. Most of those people worked their whole lives, more than a half a century of doing everything for themselves, only to end up with some smart-assed kid slinging them around like a sack of potatoes and shoveling gruel down their throats three times a day, then getting pissed off at them, because their physical and mental limitations aren’t ‘convenient’ for their schedules.

        If those nursing home patients could speak for themselves, they’d surely tell you to go fuck yourself and wait until YOUR turn comes.

        That’s cool – you can have your own opinion; it’s still somewhat America. Though I disagree with you.

        My question to you is who runs this ‘system’? If the government is your answer I would wonder why you hang out at a site like this.

        How about we just treat insurance like every other product and service in this country and let it cross state lines? That’s right, open it up for competition. Then you’ll see some changes for the better.

        More government is not the answer. Read Atlas Shrugged if you haven’t and if you come out not seeing what is going on then please move to NYC (first city to go when it all goes bad). Get the highest floor apartment you can.

          Hold on right there! The biggest fallacy is that buying insurance across state lines will solve the probelem. It won’t. Republicans repeat this idiotic line every time they’re asked for a solution and it frustrates the heck out of me.

          I’m an insurance broker so let me tell you why it won’t work. Insurance companies price their plans based on the expected cost of claims. They contract with doctors and other health care providers (hospitals, labs, outpatient surgery clinics, etc)to get a discount on the rates the providers charge. The way the insurance company gets discounts is to promise the providers a volume of patients who will use their services. So insurance company A in California who has thousands of enrolled members promises the provider group that they can bring the provider all their members in the provider’s area. The provider group discounts their pricing based on the volume of patients they can expect from the insurance company.

          Now, for example, let’s say Alabama Life decided to offer insurance in California. So they send their provider contracting representative out to California to negotiate with the local providers so the members they sign up have doctors and hospitals to go to. What kind of patient volume do you think they can promise the providers? If you said, well they don’t have any members yet, so none! Winner, winner, chicken dinner! The insurance companies already providing plans in California have the market locked up. The only way Alabama Life would be able to get contracts with providers is if they promised to pay them more than the other insurance carriers. Guess what that would do to the monthly premiums they’d have to charge! It would drive them up and they wouldn’t be competitive and no one would choose to buy their insurance.

          So there you go. That’s why buying insurance across state lines is not a simple solution. The carriers in other states simply have no product to sell until they negotiate with providers to get a network. The network IS the product and it is priced according to the discounts the insurer is able to negotiate.

              That’s good!

              But it says nothing but to reflect on the cost for providing care in a certain region. In other words, the providers in your area charge less for the same services than providers in California. That’s also why insurance plan rating is done by geographical regions, because the cost of care varies from region to region. In California, the cost of care is generally higher. As well, it is higher in some regions of California, like Orange County for example, than it is in others like the Central Valley. So people buying policies in Orange County have different rates than people buying policies in the Central Valley.

        Do you think the single-payer plan has any chance of working? Haven’t you learned that anything the government touches goes down the crapper? You will end up taking care of a loved one for the rest of their lives because the government has deemed them unsuitable for a life saving operation or med. Don’t even think about taking a long vacation. The government will be having top notch services as usual while we won’t.

Because up till now we have had the best medical system in the world. The finest care can / could be had. Where they are at one plan fits all and they cannot get proper treatment. Neither in quality, continuity and attention to detail.

      • ready down under says:

        Leslie Ann, we have a single payer system here in Aussie but it is kinda “subsidised” by Gubbermint incentive to take out private healthcare as well. We have the Gubbermint run Medicare which is funded by the “Medicare Levy” on all people who pay tax, with an extra slug “surcharge” if you earn more than a certain amount. If you take out private health insurance you get a rebate of 30% of the premium but all this did was allow the Health Insurance companies to, surprise!!, jack up their premiums and rip off some of that lovely Gubbermint money and declare obscene increases in profits each year. If you dont have Insurance you pay a higher levy.

        So, as you can see, if you are a working, taxpaying person you pay – if you are a parasite it’s free.

        I have private health insurance and that allows me to claim some things that are not covered my Medicare – dental, physio, glasses but it doesnt cover all of it – there is still a considerable “gap” between what my Insurance will pay and the cost of the service.

        What private health cover is really good for here is for things like “elective” surgery. For instance I needed a full knee reconstruction after a motor bike crash which is considered “elective” or non essentail surgery. I could have had it done through Medicare and it would have been totally free but I would have had to go on a waiting list and I would have been waiting a few years at least. Also, I would not have had a choice of surgeon – I would have got whoever was at the hospital on the day. Because I had Insurance when I finally decided I wanted it done I spoke to my chosen surgeon on the Tuesday and it was done on the Thursday. I had to pay a gap though, about $1,300 I think from memory, very much worth it in my opinion as I got to chose a top surgeon and remember I’ll be walking on this knee for the rest of my life.

        Leslie Ann, I gave you a green thumb as your comments did show some intelligence and thought – bit misguided maybe – but cant crucify you for having a different opinion to mine, we both still live in free countries after all – for the time being anyway.

        Our system is expensive and getting more so. Gubbermints are very inefficient at running businesses (healthcare systems, hospitals) as they are incredibly “top heavy” with seemingly non essential executives on enormous salaries which means a lot of services dont reach the people they are meant to help.

        Been a long post, but what I am trying to say is if you let the Gubbermint do what they think is best for you, you are gunna get screwed. Also, once the Obummercare system is in place it wont implode and be scrapped, WONT HAPPEN! – Gub’mints dont work that way – they will have reviews and enquiries (at more obscene cost to the taxpayer) and come up with ways to “fix” or “improve it”, also at obscene cost to the taxpayer so that “All my fellow Americans can benefit from these wonderful reforms ……..” (Vision Stars and Stripes being waved and “Oh say can you see ….” being sung)

        Yes, I was being sarcastic in case you hadnt worked out the Aussie sense of humour. And I am not singling out you Yanks either, my scorn is directed just as much at my own Gub’mint.

Everyone (including illegals, drug dealers, under the table workers, those of low wages, those of higher wages, etc.) would be contributing every time they make a purchase…so unless they are 100% mountain-man with zero purchases over the years, they would be purchasing and contributing toward the cost. Under the new obamacare, some are stuck paying more so others get free or subsidized care. Tax-at-point-of-purchase eliminates the freeloaders as they pay, too.

          Leslie Ann, I did get your point about “point of sale” tax and your argument was well articulated. We have a “Goods and Services” tax of 10% which raises enormous amounts of revenue. There are some exemptions – fresh food for instance – but not many. It is a surprisingly equitable tax – pain in the you-know-what for guys like me in business who have to collect it – as no matter who you are, you pay it. Rich people spend more and cant avoid it like they can use a team of Accountants to minimise income tax down to near zero. Even your corner drug dealer who your IRS or our Aust Tax Office wouldnt even know existed pays tax this way. Still, its just another way to extract money from people and like Any Mouse I am all for the absolute minimum Gub’mint interference in my life.

            I’ve always believed ALL taxes should be point-of-purchase. No IRS, no property taxes, no taxes other than a grand total at the cash register. That way everyone has skin in the game. Also, if that tax goes up, everyone immediately sees it went up and will demand to know why. It’s a much more open system than a multitude of different taxes and hidden fees they use to make it appear the taxes haven’t risen.

                Leslie Ann, even though I am a tax collector for my Gub’mint I do believe our GST is a very fair and equitable tax. There is a bit of a “black economy” here where people work for cash but all that money doesnt go under the mattress and when it is spent tax is collected. It should replace income tax completely which would do away with a massive industry the feeds on avoiding tax altogether – the downside is, guys like Al Capone would never have been sent to the slammer :-)

                Also, I do find some of the personal attacks more than a bit offensive but some of the rebuttals to your views have been polite enough. Just coz some of us dont entirely agree with your opinion (me included) is no reason for some of the comments. I think it was an American who said, “I may not agree with what you are saying, but I will defend with my life your right to say it!” (or words to that effect).

      Right now, Obama is trying to do damage control, arbitrarily changing the law by saying that people who got cancelation notices can now keep their plan. That will depend on the individual states’ Insurance Commissioners. Even if they can now keep their old plans, the insurance companies have already made acturial rating assumptions for all the benefits they have to include in the Obamacare plans. Without the current members moving to these new plans, their rating assumptions go out the window. This is not over by any means.

      As an insurance broker working with all our clients who have gotten cancelation notices to get them covered with new plans, I can now expect them all to be calling to see what they need to do to unwind their deals and go back to their old coverage and, rightly so. What a circus!

        Exactly Anonymous, I cancelled an appointment earlier today with my local ins. broker. I heard Obama’s speech and decided the guy just wouldn’t be able to tell me anything I didn’t already know. My plan was cancelled and the new one was going up $250.00 per month. Who knows how all of this will work out. Would you mind answering a question for me?

        Have you ever dealt with or do you know anything about a not for profit group called medi-share? I am thinking about going in that direction as the price is much cheaper than my existing plan.

      The Patient Un-Affordable Care Act was never designed to work. Single payer has been the plan from the beginning and even Oshitbag is on record saying it. By playing on the greed of the American sheeple to believe they would get free healthcare they passed the PUCA to destroy the health insurance industry leaving the government to replace it. Now comes the really real truth about the PUCA – it has nothing to do with healthcare and everything to do with control. Controlling the really stupid sheeple. Is there honestly anyone left out there that still believes that Americans will ever be free again without a total reset?

          • Well, my furnace is “grandfathered” in. The EPA regulations allow for that. They only apply to new stoves. You can still buy a used one privately, but a dealer must scrap an old one, from what I gather.

            If you buy a new one, it will most likely have to be EPA compliant. These regs have actually been around for a number of years. They only regulate the stove…not whether you are permitted to burn wood or not.

            Local regs are the only ones that could prevent you from burning wood and they don’t work well out in the sticks.

            Of course, if you still have a mortgage, the insurance will probably have a say in it, too.

              JRS, even without a mortgage, the home insurance policy will have a $500 waiver for a wood stove. This is because that is the charge for the volunteer fire department to come put out a chimney fire. In my township, our taxes pay 1/2 the fire charge and the homeowner is responsible for the rest. Then, of course, you pay for the chimney cleanout and (maybe) to have it re-lined.

              There may actually be an advantage to those modern stoves if they also produce less creosote.

            Internet rumor about “EPA banning woodstoves”.

            What they did do was require higher efficiency for new ones….and it’s actually a GOOD thing for a change.

            The new “gassifier” type stoves burn so clean, there is virtually no creosote formed, and use far less wood since it re-burns the gases that form creosote.

            My previous stove (Fisher), I’d remove a 5 gallon bucket of creosote from a winter of burning ( and I burn DRY hardwood ). The new stove I replaced it with, about 1/2 a #10 can. BIG difference.

            Old stove, smoke would belch. New one, almost can’t tell it’s burning except to see the heat shimmy the air out of the flue.

            Big difference.

            I’m sorry it took a govt regulation to force stove manufacturers to build a better stove….the market should have done that, but it didn’t.

                I know where it comes from.

                Arizona is unique in that it contains within itself 3 different climate zones. The southern most part being the Sonoran desert receives the bulk of its water through a system dams primarily located on the Salt River. Previous to being dammed the Salt River was a mostly a seasonal river being only being filled during the rainy season. The Verde River also empties into the Salt River Basin near the Mesa area. The bulk of the water is pumped from the river bed, over the mountains and into canalways that follow the same paths the ancient indigenous peoples used.

                I can’t remember the name of the dam off the top of my head that diverts the river into a pump system that pumps the water over the mountains, but the riverbed is dry immediately after it until it rains, the whole river is diverted.

                There are smaller rivers and streams closer to the mountains that do run year round, I know of more than a few east of the phoenix area, but a capable (read lifted) 4X4 is needed to access them.

                I am only covering ground water in this message, Many of the desert plants store copious amounts of water within themselves that could be harvested quite easily. Care should be taken when attempting this because not all plants yield drinkable water.

      Anybody who thinks anything to do with Obamascare was not planned and purposeful is fooling themselves or supports what is really going on – they are enemies of freedom and the constitution.

      Its not to get single payer IMHO, no, its an economic weapon of mass destruction pointed right at the productive class.

      The “can’t read it, till it passes” right up to the bribery and political subterfuge used to pass this monstrosity hid the true purpose and showed how far progressives, socialist’s and communist’s would go to destroy the freedom loving middle-class of this country.

      That is the design, milk out the last vestige’s savings and spendable income from the middle class so that they become impoverished and dependent on government largesse until that plug is pulled too.

      Obamascare was not designed for health coverage, health coverage is only a byproduct used to mollify the poor and ignorant until its designed mission is completed.

      I’ve been following Karl Denninger at Market Ticker for years and think he has aptly put real numbers to this and many other economic issues – numbers don’t lie.

      Karl has made a convincing case that were monopolistic laws and regulation removed that protect insurers, drug companies and healthcare providers costs would dramatically and substantially decline – I happen to agree.

      Begs the question, why was Obamascare designed as it was – only one obvious conclusion for me.

        Go to the Daily Mail/Mail Online or put this headline into google for a link

        Revealed: Obamacare plans will cost MORE ‘in many cases’ even with government subsidies, officials admit for the first time

        Included are quotes from Sebelius and Gary Cohen who is Director of Oversight for HHS and copies of the letters sent on HHS letterhead admitting these new plans cost more.

        Do you think the entire country is so ignorant that they don’t know what they had, what they paid, what they will now be asked to buy and the premium, deductible and out-of-pocket costs? Do women past 55 need maternity care? Do any men? Do people with adult children need pediatric vision/dentistry? Does anyone need paid contraception when it is $12-$15 month?

        Several different people with cancer who are currently covered and in care have gone public with their stories of restricted networks that cut out their MDs or their hospitals. The premiums for these pre-existing conditions have gone up 6-8x, the deductibles are hitting 5 figures and the co-pays are no longer 80/20 unless you have a gold plan. In the cheapest plans, the co-pays are 60/40. Yet, we are subsidizing all Congressional staffers and elected Congress Members for gold and platinum plans, which are not subsidized for anyone else, BTW.

        You are the one spouting talking points. However, your vaunted leaders just did a 180 on you, pal, and admitted these plans are more expensive.

        If the plans are so wonderful, why do unions demand exemptions?

        I usually ignore trolls, but this entire cluster futz is going to impact the entire economy negatively. Not only the increased cost of health care where you pay but the yearly deductible is so high it is like not having insurance, but all the other mandates affecting utility costs and food costs and the cost of doing business in the US are either totally inept or are planned to bring about economic collapse.

      deductible went up by $300
      and pharmacy copays went up some
      thats the bad news
      good news is I wont be paying any more per month
      and my total out of pocket expenses (excluding pharmacy)
      is capped at no more than $2000 a year
      thank God
      that means if something really terrible happpens
      I wont be forced into bankruptcy

        lena, link @ Drudge to Gallup poll. They’ve been pushing the *Great Christmas Season* meme since August and “unexpectedly”, the polling shows a decrease in people’s spending plans.

        We have a manufacturing (low price point/mostly wholesale/some retail) and a service business. Wholesale is “The New Normal”, about the same over the past 3 years, retail is barely above ground, service is spotty with good weeks and bad ones alternating. I know a lot of small business people and they all report the same. eBay sales are dead for many, if not most.

        Nothing to figure out. Everyone knows their own bank balance and pay check. Heating season just started up here and that means higher gas/electric bills. Everyone has to eat, but they can eat for less, too.

      This is not an “unmitigated disaster”.

      ObamaCare failures are going exactly as planned by Obama and the insurance companies.

      This Obamacare fallout is only the wisps of smoke from the lit fuse that will deliberately collapse the economy just as it was designed to do – to help move the sheeple into a one world government under a new monetary (probably credit) system.

      This is all the Saul Alinsky / George Bernard Shaw / Cloward-Piven strategy being thrust upon an apathetic or otherwise electronically “drugged” society.

          Hard to tell what effects the pole shift will cause. It is moving a mile a day now. The shift is accelerating and magnetic north will be in Siberia in less than 2 years. Research says when it gets to approx. 40 degrees north it will greatly accelerate and move to 40 degrees south where it will slow down (stabilize) and continue its journey to the new north (which was the south pole).

          Airports are constantly having to update their runway coordinates. I would assume anything that needs magnetics to drive or fly will have an increasingly hard or impossible time to get where they’re going. Planes won’t fall out of the sky, just might not be able to figure out where to land!!

            Why would an airport need to change runway coordinates? They are based on longitude and latitude, which do not change because they are based on Earth’s axis of rotation. Magnetic north does not matter.

            Also, I don’t think commercial jets are using magnetic compasses for navigation. A gyrocompass uses the gyroscope effect to hold a position.

            Magnetic north is always moving, sometimes fast, sometimes slow. It hasn’t affected me in any way.

              The old 1968 cessena I fly uses a standard compass. I don’t use it much. Mostly fly by the seat of my pants. And the airports have indeed been changing the coordinates. The pole shift effects everything. It lately has caused wales and dolphins to beach themselves. Migratory birds get lost. Like a stone tosses in a body of water the ripples continue. The magnosphere is affected. The magnosphere protects the atmosphere from solar winds and the planet from gamma rays solar flares ect. These increasing clatyclismic events are not just random occurances. Check our BI,s earthquake predictions. I don’t really care if folks prefer to be denialist and continue to dwell in unsafe places any more that I care if folks continue to be complacient sheeple and don’t prep for whatever events happen. There is saying my grandmother was fond of. I hated it. he who will not when he may-When he will shall have nay. You folks who don’t prepare for both government collapse and clatyclismic pole shifting disasters will simply perish. Think & do whatever you want & wish. Your the one who has to live with the end results. the very best thing is to prepare for something that never happens. The very worst is to have it happen and be totally unprepared. Move inland to high ground is my advice.

        Ive got milk goats. They are a good prep animal. they require extra good fences. They will destroy gardens & fruit trees if they get the chance. they can thrive on marginal browse that would starve a cow. there very prolific and the milk is good. My children grew up drinking goat milk and eating goat burger. With the erratic weather and blending of the seasons I think a greenhouse will be necessary to grow your own food.

        Although the current set of events and trends does appear to many of us believers as “the end is nigh,” we would also do well to recall that 70AD in Jerusalem, 325AD in Rome, 1927 in Berlin, 1929 and 1941 in the US probably all seemed to fit that description to those who were keen observers then.

        As one ol’ Southern preacher used to say, “Live as if you’d die tomorrow — AND as if you’ll live to be a hundred.” Or as the Greatest Generation sang, “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.”

        The state legislatures really have no power at the federal level now since the 17th amendment passed. Prior to ratification of this amendment the state legislature had the ability to recall the senator if the state’s bidding was not done in congress. The senators were actually beholden to the state legislatures before ratification now they are not. One of the myriad of issues that has caused the current mess.

      One time during my service in th U. S. ARMY, we had a green lieutenant call in artillery fire right on top of us then got us lost getting us out of the danger zone. He wouldn’t listen to any of the nco’s, he just insisted on doing everything “his way” and putting lives at risk. We eventually got him relieved of command, (which is not at all easy.) The situation the nation is in right now is exactly the same. Bad leadership is not only insanely frustrating, it’s deadly. That being said, I still believe this is a ruse. Either that or the administration is deliberately burning our house down.

On Sept. 21, 2009 after an earthquake, there was a 8.1 in Samoa. On May 20, 2000 an earthquake here and then a 7.8 hit in southern Sumatra. These were all within 15 days. Back on May 29, 2001 same area, and 25 days later on the coast of Peru a 8.4 hit. This is an earthquake area that sometimes follows very large earthquakes. 100% of the time there is a major quake of 6.5 within 15 days.

      New Guniea to Samoa

      The back-bone to this whole chaos is debt. If we start to see the USD in its real purpose, we might be able to come together like a rising movement. The floating USD was not ultimately brought about to only serve a function as a currency. It’s a currency within the debt-currency paradigm, only. Within the real-time (floating) gold-as-money paradigm, the dollar plays a vital role within the real-time measure of USD/oz. That floating relationship had to come about in order for gold (by weight) to be re-monetized !!! Real-time gold-as-money has full scalable liquidity based on market demands. Don’t expect a top-down monetization by decree or by fiat. The real-time factor prevents this possibility because anything so abrupt and highly visible would crash the legacy system of the USD. The is a market transition that must be bottom-up and organic for the sake of rate-of-change. This beast must rise.
