Hatch Closed to Plight of Poor

Orin Hatch continues the long tradition of the Republican Party in championing the wealthy and the corporations. I can only guess Senator Hatch has no poor constituency, because on the Sunday after the burial of his good friend, Senator Ted Kennedy, instead of thinking of those without health care, he reiterated the need for the health insurance industry as it is, because it is 1/6Th of the United States economy, something, I'm sure he has helped to bring about in his time in the Senate. So, again, a Republican thinks "money" instead of thinking of those who suffer without adequate health care.
It is amazing to me that anyone who works for a living could stand with a politician such as Orin Hatch and the Republican Party.
It would help if we all remembered what Teddy Kennedy said back in 1968 in Alaska, because it is SO fitting today as it was then, "We have let the haters take the lead, and we are all paying for it."

Gas Attack

I had my gas cut off via mishap yesterday, (you
know those husband/wife mishaps, right? "Did you
pay the gas and electric before we left for
vacation?" Sure honey, don't you remember, I
paid it online." "Okay, so I can throw this
notice away?" "Well yeah, in the recycle bin.")

The representative left a little door hanger
saying, "sorry I missed you," meaning he/she
made an attempt to see me, right? WRONG!

The phone representative, Lisa, told me the person
coming to shut off the gas is not supposed to
attempt contact with the tenant.

Well, EXCUSE ME, but then why does he/she leave
a note that states, "sorry I missed you?"
What's even more confusing is why right-wing
anti-health care reform fanatics haven't been
screaming about our utilities. We no longer
have a center for gas or electric IN the area
they service. We do NOT have a competing
source for gas and electric, meaning they
have a monopoly, AND whenever you contact
them, you get a person living in India taking
your call!

Talk about potential terrorist attack
. All they need to do is take over a
call center in a foreign country and have those
guys issue disconnect notices for EVERYONE in a
particular area.

And what is seriously wrong with this situation
is that WE did this. We turned a blind eye and
allowed legislation from our representatives to
pass that allows this from our basic utility companies!

If you think keeping utilities in the hands of foreigners
is okay and monopolies are okay, then do nothing.
If you think this is a problem, for crying out loud
write your representatives and tell them you want
competing FREE market utilities.

Stop the Madness....Get the Facts

The insurance industry and the Republican Party are spreading lies and rumors in order to continue the status quo in our health insurance system. A status quo that will become increasingly expensive (and worthless with denial of claims, etc).

The town hall mobs are just one aspect of their plan. If they can prevent folks from discussing the issues they think "they" might win and keep this extremely profitable corporate insurance system in place with little to no competition.

There's a remedy. It's called truth. So let's stop the mob rule and the rumor mill that the corporate media is promoting for their clients. Corporate media loves to fan the chaos because more groups will buy ad time. They get rich off of controversy even if it is controversy manufactured by the corporations.

Visit Check get the facts and spread the truth.

The stakes are just too high to do nothing.

Looks like a Third World Country to me

When Profit and Corporations are seen as Godlike and people and government become the enemy.....

Unfortunately, if we don't do some serious reform many folks who currently have health insurance will lose it within the next 5-10 years.

Too bad we don't have any real journalists on the tv and radio who could bring folks the real picture and he real facts instead of the corporate media's slanted corporate perspective.

It's a crying shame.

Obama Sold Us Out to Big Pharma!!

Obama promised to this system of outrageous overpayments to Big Pharma of 10-20 BILLION per day (at "our" expense).

Obama needs to find that infamous "non-existent" Democratic backbone and make good on this campaign promise to us.

We did NOT elect Obama to entertain his bi-partisan urges at our expense!!

Health Care Ads are Talking Sense and Taking Aim

Countering the Propaganda

Propaganda works...that's why the corporate media uses it a lot to promote the interests of the private insurance industry over the interests of the American People. Propaganda (to borrow a phrase from a recent comment on my blog) "exploits the stupid" and it does it effectively. This is why less than corporations own the

US supports the overthrow of a democratic government

Yes, Virginia...the US government is NOT exporting Democracy to Honduras. It looks like the US government wants to continue to support the capitalist Robber Class and their exploitation of the South American people. Check it out here.

Where's the change? Why is the School of the America's still being supported by Obama and the Republicrats? What will it take to effect real change and real democracy in our own country?
