Obama’s War On Coal Will Increase Energy Our Costs By 70%-80%
It was reported on February 14, 2014, Dr. Julio Friedmann, the deputy assistant secretary for clean coal at the Department of Energy, told House lawmakers that the first generation of carbon capture and storage technology would increase wholesale electricity prices by "70 or 80 percent."
This is just more proof Obama wants to cripple America and wipe out the Middle Class by making energy only affordable to those as wealthy as himself and his rich liberal donors.
Brother Suspended for Defending His Sister Against Possible Sexual Predator At High School
A student was suspended for defending his sister after the school refused to intervene in what the school is calling "bullying" complaints.
To me, as I read about what took place, reports make the football player sound less like a "bully" and more like a sexual predator.
Dominic Conti, age 17, was Senior Class President at Westlake High School in California.
His younger sister, age 14, is the victim of repeated verbal sexual harassment by a freshman football player at the school.
It appears that Dominic was not going to take the chance of the football player being a sexual predator or not, as he, his dad, and a school security guard confronted the freshman player about the harassment at a football game.
During the questioning was when the player lunged at Dominic starting a fight between the two.
Westlake High School suspended Dominic Conti for five days, while the football player was given a two-day suspension.
Dominic Conti has a 4.4 GPA, but was stripped of his Senior Class President title and banned from extracurricular activities.
The family is now threatening to file a lawsuit against the school. They claim that several complaints to school administrators, prior to the confrontation, went unanswered.
The Conti family has filed restraining orders against the football player who has verbally sexually harassed Dominic's sister.
It is important to note that a concern over a possible juvenile sex offender, a possible sexual predator, is justified since juvenile sex offenders are on the rise across the country.
In fact, statistics show most cases of sexual assault started as sexual harassment in our schools. And yes, today there are more sexual assaults of teenage girls in our schools than ever before.
Since it appears Westlake High School has done nothing to protect Dominic's younger sister, there is no word if she has been assaulted or worse as of yet.
And yes, since my youngest sister was threatened in the same way while in High School, I can relate to the Conti family as I'm sure the Conti family are worried.
They probably believe, as I did back so many years ago, that since it's just a matter of time before Dominic's sister may be assaulted -- they must protect her.
Muslim Clerks Won’t Touch “Dirty” Pork or Alcohol in Great Britain
In London, England, they have a unique problem dealing with their Muslim population.
It has been reported that Political Correctness has gone wild there, especially at one London retail outlet.
Marks & Spencer is a retail chain of over 700 stores located throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland, as well as another 300 stores globally.
Their customers are more than a little pissed-off by the way which the store has implemented what they describe as their “policy of tolerance” - which acknowledges the religious beliefs of other workers.
What they described as a mere acknowledgment seemed in practice to be more along the lines of preferential treatment.
The problem is centered around Muslim employees who do not want to touch or sell alcohol or pork while working as Cashiers.
The Muslims who are objecting to doing the job specifications are refusing to do so on "religious" grounds.
So instead of simply replacing the Muslims with qualified people, the retailer is permitting them to decline performing their job function of ringing up the sale and placing the purchased items in the bags for customers.
The customers, upon arriving at a dysfunctional check-out manned by a Muslim, have to wait for a relief person to bag their items because the Muslims refuse to touch the “dirty” items being purchased.
The British are great for under-stating the obvious and say that it is no surprise that a shopper having to wait for "an extra layer of time-consuming internal theatrics is going to get upset."
According to a London news agency, many upset and indignant shoppers have threatened to boycott Marks & Spencer.
Honestly, I don't blame them! I'd be pissed and would find another place to shop, but than again that's me. I believe in the power of the purse!
The perception in England is that this is just another example of accommodations to a demanding minority who objects to much of the Western Society to which they were welcomed as immigrants.
It is perceived as adding a thankless insult to the in-store injury.
It is also recognized by shoppers as an ineffective way to manage the store and the issue.
If the store has employees which refuse to handle their products, they can either terminate the employees or accommodate the employees.
If they choose to accommodate the employees, a wiser choice would have been to do so in a manner which does not adversely impact their customers.
In other words, use the Muslim asses somewhere other than dealing with the public or as checkers and cashiers.
Placing Muslim employees into areas in which they don’t come in contact with the objectionable items would be less disruptive from a customer service standpoint.
Inconveniencing customers by sending them to a second register to is surely going to infuriate them, and they will feel discriminated against by both the store and the employee causing their delay, as has been the result of the mismanagement at the London store.
Smart competitors of the Marks & Spencer stores were quick to make it clear that their policies are structured so as to not create this type of situation and their customers will not be adversely affected.
In checking to see if the policy was still in effect, it turns out that the people’s message got through.
In response to the outcry and threatened boycotts, Mark and Spencer issued the following statement days later saying, “Customer service is our number-one priority. We regret that in the highlighted case this was not delivered to our usual standards,” a statement released by the company read.
“We would like to apologize for any resulting confusion and reassure our customers that this was an isolated incident.”
The reporter of this story made a point to say, "It seems that when enough people raise their voice and demand common sense, those demands are heard."
He went on to say, "The problem is that most of us are busy tending to the daily issues in our lives and are not interested or involved in agenda promotion. That is where the opposition gains an advantage."
And yes, he is absolutely right!
Utah lawmaker to NSA: Spy on US and we’ll turn your water off!
Yes, the NSA, the National Security Agency, is building a huge multi-level facility in Utah to house all of your phone calls, e-mails, you name it, that they can get a hold of!
Well, that NSA facility in the State of Utah will need approximately 1.7 million gallons of water to cool the computers the NSA used to collect data about us, the people.
But what if the facility doesn’t get that needed water? The idea is that those computers burn up.
That's the position that one Utah lawmaker is taking: Quit spying on us or Utah will shut down your water supply.
In response to critics of his suggested strategy to make the NSA obey the law, State Rep. Marc Roberts says "So what, the facility is unconstitutional anyway!"
He is proposing a bill that will keep the State of Utah from supplying the water. The bill will allow Utah from supplying anything the facility needs to run.
So, will state lawmakers and the governor of Utah pass a law that shuts down the water supply for a new National Security Agency facility in their state?
Well, new legislation introduced this last week by State Rep. Marc Roberts seeks to do just that, according to a non-partisan think-tank.
The Salt Lake Tribune confirms the report saying:
A bill (that has yet to be numbered) has been introduced that would prevent any state entity or any entity that contracts with the state from providing water and other support to agencies that collect massive amounts of data.
Bill sponsor Rep. Marc Roberts, R-Santaquin, says the measure is directed at the NSA Data Center in Bluffdale, adding that the state needs to intervene in what he sees as unreasonable search and seizure of personal information by the federal government.
And that is the point isn't it? Americans are fed up and frustrated by the Federal Government's refusal to abide by the law and adhere to the Constitution which protects all of us from unreasonable search and seizure without a warrant.
I salute Rep Marc Roberts for doing something while Washington DC permits this to take place.
ObamaCare patients with serious pre-existing diseases could face expensive drug costs
People with serious pre-existing diseases, precisely those the president aimed to help with ObamaCare, could find themselves paying for expensive drug treatments with no help from the health care exchanges.
Those with expensive diseases such as lupus or multiple sclerosis face something called a "closed drug formulary."
Dr. Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute explains,"if the medicine that you need isn't on that list, it's not covered at all. You have to pay completely out of pocket to get that medicine, and the money you spend doesn't count against your deductible, and it doesn't count against your out of pocket limits, so you're basically on your own."
Obama had claimed it would rescue those with serious pre-existing conditions, but he lied!
"So it could be that a MS patient could be expected to pay $62,000 just for one medication," says Dr. Daniel Kantor, who treats MS patients and others with neurological conditions near Jacksonville, Florida.
"That’s a possiblity under the new ObamaCare going on right now."
To spread the word on the newest Obama lie, Americans for Prosperity is running an ad on exactly this subject, featuring a woman by the name of Emilie Lamb who suffers from Lupus -- an auto-immune disease.
Emilie starts by saying, "I voted for Barack Obama for president. I thought ObamaCare was going to be a good thing."
But then Emilie says she later got a letter saying her insurance was canceled because of ObamaCare, pushing her premiums from $52 to $373 a month.
"I'm having to work a second job, to pay for ObamaCare,” she adds.
“For somebody with lupus, that's not an easy thing. If I can't afford to continue to pay for ObamaCare, I don't get my medicine. I don't get to see my doctors."
One of the problems is that drugs for some diseases such as MS do not have generic versions.
So without cheaper alternatives and no help from ObamaCare, patients could face huge personal out-of-pocket bills, forcing some to skimp on their medications.
The worse thing that could happen - will probably happen!
Dr Kantor worries that "this may drive more patients" to not buy their medicines, "which we know is dangerous."
He says, "We know MS can be a bad disease when you’re not treating it. When you’re treating it, for most people they handle it pretty well, but we know when you don’t treat (it), it’s the kind of disease where people end up in wheel chairs potentially."
Of course, in the commercial market medications not on a preferred list would also be more expensive - but with a major difference, according to Dr Gottlieb.
"You go outside that list, you have to pay out of pocket for it, but you do get some co-insurance, meaning the plans will pay some of the cost of that."
More benefits mean more money!
And yes, ObamaCare premiums would have to rise if someone wants the coverage that was supposed to be cheaper -- nothing new about that!
What they are trying to depict as normal is not. They are just strange, queer, freaks, who are trying to justify their weirdness. In many cases, they are sick and mentally ill.
