As one of those un-insured this makes my blood boil, especially when that Hunter bitch tries to sugar coat the industry position.

Part II

Part III

All this comes from a discussion thread about the California Nurses Association publishing a study that indicated expanding medicare could cover every single person in the U.S. and cost comparatively little.

You’ve heard me say this before, we need to knock down the insurance and billing companies first. They are the prime obstacle to having single payer, or universal, or what have you.

Profit and greed should NEVER, EVER override health.

Like it or not, the United States of America is sliding into a miasma of the worst kind. This started happening before the Bush Administration to be sure, but this administration is using it to it’s advantage and our extreme disadvantage.

The United States is now run by a despotic administration. I’ve said this before and it bears repeating again and again. Through the actions of those despots we now have a fascist government running the show.

Check out this interview of author Naomi Wolf. She wrote the book “End of America”.

When you’re done with that sign up for the American Freedom Campaign. We need to rise up against the misuse of governmental power.

As Wolf says in the interview, the McCarthyism of the 50’s will look like the good old days if w3e let the Bush administration or ANY administration continue on the same path.

I’ve already told you all one of the things we need to do, because while Wolf correctly identifies all the things that slide us into fascism, she never identifies the source.

The source is unchecked corporate power over our government. If you read this blog you already know what need to change in order to break the stranglehold of corporations over both our government and ourselves. Modify the constitution to specifically exclude the enumerated rights to corporations.

Read the book “The Arms of Krupp 1587-1968” by William Manchester to see just one of the corporate interests the pushed WW I and WW II Germany into warfare. You’ll see clearly what I’m getting at here.

Then step back and examine who stands to profit most from running a government. If you guessed corporations and their owners and shareholders you get a gold star. In most any wrongdoing if you step back and think about who benefits most you’ll find your perpetrator.

Quick, watch it before YouTube pulls it. This one is titled “The Work Outing” and if you catch the play on words, you get it.

This has more gay content than you can shake a stick at.

Check it out. Matter of fact, watch the very end of the video and see who the sponsors happen to be. They blame Silicon Valley wanting us to pay more which is pure unadulterated bovine effluent.

The sponsors are phone and cable companies. Two of the most evil entities on the planet. Without net neutrality phone and cable companies could extract money from the likes of Google, YouTube, etc. And who would ultimately pay that price? We would.

They had their asses handed to them when congress refused to vote the bill, now they’ll try again to insert something that is bad for the consumer. Explain to me why Japan has both a higher number of households with broadband access, as well as speeds faster than what is offered in the United States at a cost that is significantly lower.

I suppose the greed level of Japanese companies is nothing compared to U.S. and British companies.
