At the 11th hour and to the surprise of no one, right on cue, the self-proclaimed party of small government capitulated. Anyone who remains lost in the false paradigm that there are two political parties is blind and divested from reality. The government shutdown that wasn’t was nothing more than so much theater. It was theater of the absurd.

|As a long term healthcare provider, I agree that there were problems in American healthcare — but it was the best healthcare in the world! What needed to happen was resolution of " pre-existing conditions" which could have easily been addressed, insurance across state lines would have created much more competition for healthcare, and medical law suits should have been addressed.
If congress had been willing to work with healthcare providers to allow us to roll these improvements out and implement a more patient focused system — problems could have been resolved while still keeping the best healthcare in the world!
The other huge impact on healthcare has been the huge increase in Medicaid, which goes along with the huge increase in entitlements overall under the obama administration. States should have been allowed to more directly impact that than the federal government continuing to promote the nanny state. Then focus could on wellness rather than treating illnesses — and being proactive in overall wellness.
obamacare is control, rationing, depopulating the US, and increased tax income for the federal government.
In the past dozen years, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — also known as food stamps — has grown from a $17 billion a year Federal expenditure to $78 billion a year. Food stamp recruiters have sign-up quotas of 150 per month.
In August 1777, British troops under Gen. John Burgoyne were finding the march from Fort Ticonderoga to Albany, N.Y., a difficult one.
Not only was the terrain hostile, but colonists Burgoyne thought would be loyal to the crown were proving anything but; and colonial troops under Philip Schuyler had scorched the crops and scattered the cattle as they retreated ahead of Burgoyne’s march, making foraging difficult. And Burgoyne suffered 800 casualties — one-seventh of his army — when Gen. John Stark and a troop of American farmers attacked his force near Bennnington, N.H.
People in America who are getting free food stamps consider it a right rather than a privilege. This attitude will be very bad when the food stamp system fails. This was proved last weekend when the computer system that runs the Electronic Benefits Transfer system crashed in 17 States.
As Colorado freedom lovers set their sights on ousting another of the State’s gun-grabbing legislators, the State’s anti-gun governor is telling outside anti-gun groups like New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns to stay away.
In September, State Senate President John Morse and State Senator Angela Giron were ousted in recall votes even though MAIG and Bloomberg poured $350,000 into their races. A new recall campaign is targeting another gun-grabbing State Senator, Evie Hudak of Denver. Petition organizers have until Dec. 3 to collect 18,900 signatures to get a recall vote on the ballot.
Most Americans are brainwashed by the medical establishment. They believe that the only relief available to them comes from a pill.
At the first sign of a medical issue they turn to allopathic doctors who are mostly just pill pushers for Big Pharma. But there are dozens of herbs and spices that are recognized as having the ability to naturally set our bodies back aright when the natural functions get out of whack. Here are five.
