Will Obamacare leave any doctors in the house? | Washington Times Communities

Will Obamacare leave any doctors in the house? | Washington Times Communities: No law can calculate these factors, only a competent, trained practitioner can. Obamacare seeks to create an even bigger chasm between doctor and patient, while driving away, rather than attracting, MDs to the profession.

Obamacare: Unfair to the young middle class, punished enough already - latimes.com: I would still be paying more than I am now for substandard health insurance.

Obamacare: Unfair to the young middle class, punished enough already - latimes.com

Obamacare: Unfair to the young middle class, punished enough already - latimes.com: Most young, middle-class Americans I know are happy that millions of previously uninsured people will receive free or heavily subsidized insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

We just didn’t realize that, unless we had health insurance at work, we’d be the ones paying for it.

Obamacare: Unfair to the young middle class, punished enough already - latimes.com

Obamacare: Unfair to the young middle class, punished enough already - latimes.com: Last month, however, I received a letter from my insurance company informing me that my plan was “no longer available” due to “new requirements for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act.” I am being funneled into the closest equivalent plan under the new California health exchange, and my monthly premium is going to rise by nearly 43% to $214 a month.

My old plan was as bare-bones as they came, so I assumed that even though the new plan would cost more, my coverage would improve under Obamacare, at least marginally.

It did not.

Under my old plan, my maximum out-of-pocket expense was $4,900. Under the new plan, I’m on the hook for up to $6,350. Copays for my doctor visits will double. For urgent-care visits, they will quadruple. Though slightly cheaper plans exist if I decide to shop around on the exchange, I will lose my dental coverage should I switch.

Needless to say, I am not pleased.

Discover Cutting Edge Technologies: With wide implementation of 3D television, it’s only a matter of time before holographic TVs are available to the public. Michael Bove, head of a program at MIT working to develop cheap holograms, estimates that within 10 years holographic t.v.s will cost the same amount as a flat screen. The MIT crew already created a chip that can support 50 Gigapixels per second. Another company working towards holograms, Provision, has the goal of producing a 6 foot projection from a box around 8 square inches. The first thing we’ll be doing with our holograph is watch Star Wars. Hologramception.

Michele Bachmann: Accountability means making Obamacare voluntary

Michele Bachmann: Accountability means making Obamacare voluntary: There's no more striking example of this than President Obama's oft-delivered promise that if you like your health insurance plan you can keep it—a central tenet to his sales pitch for Obamacare.

Now try telling that promise to the growing number of Americans receiving health insurance cancellation notices in the mail. 140,000 in Minnesota. 140,000 in Michigan. 279,000 in California. 300,000 in Florida. 800,000 in New Jersey. Sadly, cancellation letters in more states are sure to come.

Obama Sycophant David Letterman in Ratings Freefall

Obama Sycophant David Letterman in Ratings Freefall: Jay Leno and David Letterman represent late night TV's biggest rivals. Letterman's decision not to mock the Commander in Chief may be the deciding factor in their final months of head-to-head competition.

In short, Leno is suddenly cleaning Letterman's clock, around the same time Leno upped his comedic attacks on President Barack Obama.

In Nielsen numbers for the second quarter of this year, NBC’s “Tonight Show With Jay Leno” was easily the top-rated hour in late night....

Letterman’s “Late Show” on CBS, meanwhile, continues to head in the opposite direction and logged one of its weakest quarterly performances on record. The program was down from last year in virtually every category except adults 50 and older.

Obamacare lacks key cost control: Mayo Clinic CEO

Obamacare lacks key cost control: Mayo Clinic CEO: Obamacare does nothing to link doctors' fees to their performance and reduce health-care costs, the head of the Mayo Clinic told CNBC on Friday.

"The Affordable Care Act is basically insurance reform—eligibility and access—and basically, they are going to pay for that by reducing the reimbursement. It doesn't modernize how we drive to higher quality care," Dr. John Noseworthy said in a "Squawk Box" interview.

He said that updating reimbursement methods to reflect better outcomes will lower health-care costs. "Right now, we're in a system where we're reimbursing volume of care not quality and outcomes of care—safety, efficiency and so on. And that's where most of the costs are."

I’m sure you don’t care what I think because I’m no one, and we sit on different sides of the political fence in a major way. Nonetheless, this last week I’m proud to call you my fellow American. You realize something is WAY off with Obama’s credibility when it comes to Obamacare, and now you’ve stopped lobbing softball questions during this Benghazi interview shown below. You FINALLY asked the questions that need to be asked, and your anger looks and feels authentic… as it SHOULD have been all along. No problem though, we’ll welcome you to the party either way. Better late than never.

Frightening: White House Intimidating Free Speech | The Blog on Obama: White House Dossier: The White House is suppressing speech, bullying private citizens into not saying things that will hurt the president by calling attention to his false claim that people could keep their insurance if they like it.

According to CNN – and that doesn’t stand for Conservative News Network – insurance industry officials who criticize the Obamacare rollout are getting calls from the White House telling them to shut the &^%$! up. In particular, the White House doesn’t want them to talk about the inconvenient problem that insurers are being forced to drop people’s coverage – even though Obama promised this would not happen.

Is Georgia ready to elect the next Ted Cruz? | Rare

Is Georgia ready to elect the next Ted Cruz? | Rare: Earlier this year Rand Paul’s filibuster over use of drones in America demonstrated the effective power that one Senator can have in defining and clarifying policy. Recently Ted Cruz stood on the floor for an entire day in his fight to stop Obamacare. Though it was not a filibuster, it was an opportunity for congress to stop the activation of the health care law in 2014. Though it failed to convince Democrats this stand did something significant for Republican voters in exposing who is in the establishment GOP. Participating in this fight against Obamacare on the house side was Congressman Paul Broun running for US Senate in Georgia to replace Sen Saxby Chambliss. Chambliss a Republican voted for the recent bill to give funding for Obamacare in 2014. Is Georgia ready for a Senator willing to fight against the establishment on both sides of the aisle?

A World without Digital Asset Management: If It Didn't Exist, You Would Invent It

A World without Digital Asset Management: If It Didn't Exist, You Would Invent It

Digital asset management (DAM) is one of those things that few people jump into with much enthusiasm. DAM is an extra layer of policy that no one wants to define, an ongoing expense that no one wants to pay and a training requirement for which no one has time. And let’s face it: digital asset management isn't that much fun.
It’s enough to leave people wondering whether they need DAM at all.
I wonder this every day. In fact, I recently tried to convince myself that DAM was nothing more than a luxury for organizations that thrive on needless complexity. Not that I wanted it to be so, mind you; but if I’m going to keep promoting Digital Asset Management to the world, I figure that I should occasionally renew my vows with the technology.
Envisioning a world without DAM was my first step. This provided me with the clean slate-of-mind I needed to get a better perspective on why DAM does or does not matter.
The exercise was a mind-opener because it reminded me of just how wide DAM has become and how deep DAM now goes. Those who say DAM is about finding files faster, reducing time to market or increasing digital asset ROI are hung up on the marketing speak we used to sell DAM more than a decade ago — before we understood its real potential.

DAM Is about Content Discovery

The PJ Tatler » VIDEOS — Here Are Four Times, During the 2012 Election Year, When Obama Promised that If You Like Your Healthcare, You Can Keep It

The PJ Tatler » VIDEOS — Here Are Four Times, During the 2012 Election Year, When Obama Promised that If You Like Your Healthcare, You Can Keep It

If Barack Obama had told the truth about his signature legislation during 2012, he probably would not have won re-election. These clips show him lying about Obamacare, repeatedly, across the entire 2012 campaign.
June 28, 2012 — President Obama said “You will keep your health insurance…”
July 6, 2012 — President Obama promised Americans that “If you have health insurance, the only change is you’ll be more secure…”
July 13, 2012 — President Obama again promised that Obamacare would merely make existing health coverage more secure.
October 3, 2012 — President Obama promised, as part of his closing re-election argument, that if you like your healthcare, you will keep it.
Add these four lies up with his lying about Benghazi, which was done to preserve his lie that al Qaeda was “on the run.” Then throw in how the IRS suppressed dissent during most of his first term. What do we have?

Report: Taxpayers Out $9.7B on GM Bailout | Fox Business

Report: Taxpayers Out $9.7B on GM Bailout | Fox Business: At the height of the financial crisis, as GM teetered on the brink of bankruptcy, the government bailed out the giant Detroit auto maker with $49.5 billion in loans in exchange for $2.1 billion in preferred stock and a 60.8% equity stake.

In an effort to reduce that stake, Treasury has intermittently sold large portions of its GM stock, but always at prices below “the Government’s cost basis,” according to the report. In other words, the stock was sold at a price below the level at which the U.S. would break even on the deal.

ObamaCare sites fail to rate insurance plans | Fox News

ObamaCare sites fail to rate insurance plans | Fox News: Good luck. Not only will you have to navigate the technical problems that have plagued the site -- but in most states, those running the exchanges are not posting ratings that could give shoppers a clear sense of how good the plans are.

The consumer ratings are called for in the Affordable Care Act. They would be provided by a respected independent company, allowing consumers to judge health plans by treatment outcome, service and consumer satisfaction.

Federal and state officials, though, largely decided it would reflect poorly on the insurance exchanges if some companies were rated and others were not -- and have not yet published them.

LA Times - Some health insurance gets pricier as Obamacare rolls out: Pam Kehaly, president of Anthem Blue Cross in California, said she received a recent letter from a young woman complaining about a 50% rate hike related to the healthcare law.

"She said, 'I was all for Obamacare until I found out I was paying for it,'" Kehaly said.

Nearly 2 million Californians have individual insurance, and several hundred thousand of them are losing their health plans in a matter of weeks.

Horror Movie Review of Anti-Christ (Alberto De Martino)| ESplatter.com | The Guide to Horror Movies

Horror Movie Review of Anti-Christ (Alberto De Martino)| ESplatter.com | The Guide to Horror Movies: Incredibly weak "Exorcist" rip off is memorable only for an "orgy in hell" sequence, which isn't even all that memorable.

After being possessed by an executed witch Gravina levitates, pukes soup, has sex with her brother and father and even has sex with a goat! Yeah, it's your run-of-the-mill possession movie with some great effects and incredibly inept dialogue.

Director De Martino was a veteran horror filmmaker, helming "The Blancheville Monster" in 1964, the 1971 giallo "The Man with the Icy Eyes" and 1972's "The Killer Is on the Phone."

He followed up "Anti-Christ" -- released in the U.S. as "The Tempter" -- with "Holocaust 2000," called "The Chosen" in the U.S., and a direct rip off of "The Omen." He also made the memorable but flawed "Blood Link" in 1982.

A new video game entitled Lucius allows you to play the role of the main character, a young boy who finds out on his 6th birthday that he is the Antichrist – the satanically-empowered false Messiah who will rule the world for 3 ½ years before the Second Coming of Christ. The game, filled with violence, murder and demonic powers, is yet another tool that is preparing society for the eventual arrival of the prophesied Antichrist from Bible Scripture.

9. Behind The Curtain


He hides behind the curtain
In the middle of a storm
Relax they have your answer
Given to you on a platform
It's the forty fourth consecutive one
To downplay us
Deny us our beliefs
So with the current status of state
I declare a mockery
You betrayed me
The neighborhoods rise today
And that's a fact
They made a martyr of the matter in me
You betrayed me
The neighborhoods rise today
And that's a fact
They made a martyr of the matter in me
The neighborhoods will not run away my honor
We were born
I have been culture shocked
By this modern place
This has been their plan for years to come

No fathers will roll over in their graves
This has been their plan for years
The signing of the dead
And the bodies you showed me
Put me in the plastic box that I paid for
The signing of the dead
The bodies that they showed
Put me in my plastic box that I paid for
Kill all of them in front of me
Make sure their faces hit the pavement.






Articles: The New Patricians

Articles: The New Patricians: our elected leaders in Washington today "have no intention of going back to the farm." There's too much money to be made in the halls of political power.

Washington has long been a honeycomb for career politicians. Since 2006, however, that phenomenon has spawned a city state completely separated from the rest of the country. No matter how important an issue may be for the nation at large, members of congress now seem incapable of negotiation and compromise -- the essential catalysts of a working democracy.
