Here it is April 2014 and the attack ads are already starting. I don't know if I can make it through another political season. The attack ads I've seen so far are targeting Obama Care (The Affordable Care Act). I currently don't have any skin in the game (too old) 36 other healthcare systems ranked better. Compared to six other major industrialized nations, the U.S. came in dead last. This represents a massive rip-off for the American people, is totally inexcusable and totally pathetic. June 16th, 2014, U.S. rated dead last, most expensive again. This is getting beyond pathetic to just totally stupid.
Links to the right show major failings in other areas as well. Please don't confuse me with a Democrat or a Tea Partier. Details surrounding healthcare.gov and the now famous CGI Federal contractors that were suppose to insure the website worked correctly, pretty well prove, in my mind, just how inept the current government agencies are. This in addition to the famous " you can keep your current healthcare provider" statement really puts the icing on the cake. I don't know about you but I'm ready for a political party that knows what the hell they are doing. This, in my mind, leaves out Republicans, Democrats and Tea Partiers.
Climate Science, The Smartest Men On The Planet? -
The other big issue this year is climate change. There are now enough references pointing to the GOP as being a group of climate change deniers. These people obviously feel they are smarter than the 1000's of climate scientists working around the globe on climate issues. Smarter than the 100s if not 1000s of mathematicians and programmers working on algorithms that run on super computers to predict and explain current as well as future climate changes and patterns. These people want to lead you away from science into their own twisted and bizarre world of irrational thought and conclusions.
It's All Obama's Fault -- Really? -
As much as I dislake Democrats, Repuclicans, in many ways are much worse. This article pretty much sums up what I feel. At this point in time I do not intend to vote. There are bad choices and then there are worse choices. Each year the choice gets worse and worse. I sleep better nights knowing I did not contribute to the U.S. political mess.
Big Money, Influence Buying Votes, Attorneys -
Or at least trying to buy votes. Links are to the right. Hundreds of millions are being spent. If you like highly biased political ads, this is your year. If you think Gardner and Rubio are your average down-home type folk, I have another message for you. Like much of Congress, both are attorneys and represent the worse characteristic of that profession
A Word About ALEC -
If you think your vote counts for much of anything be sure to read this article. As always, you need follow the money. This organization wants to brain wash citizens into doing what the coorporations need and want them to do. It's just another case of inept voters being led around like a herd of cows.
So The Turmoil Continues -
Republicans still are battling Democrats and vice versa. The middle class continues to lose in this process. Wall Street bankers and $billionaires are still thriving under the FMOC while retirees on fixed income and prudent savers get kicked in the teeth.
