Wal-Mart versus Prescription Drug Cost:

Wal-Mart offers generic brand prescription drugs to people who have no health insurance at a cost of 4.00 per prescription, I applaud Wal-Mart for this.
However, if you go to Wal-Mart with Health Insurance like mine where the co-payment is $10.00 on that same drug, they charge you $10.00, so WTF is that all about?
So now I call Wal-Mart and if the drug is offered in generic, which I always tell the doctor to write, then I go to Wal-Mart with my prescription and say I don't have insurance and just pay the $4.00.
If a prescription is not covered under Wal-Mart's generic list, then I go to another pharmacy such as Walgreens and get the prescription filled there and pay my $10.00 co-pay.
Does anyone besides me see a problem here?
No wonder the government says we need healthcare reform.
Just how damn dumb are these healthcare providers anyway?

Let Me Tell You a Story:

My friend's son is a disabled U.S. Marine from Iraq.
The Marine Corps spent years delaying his discharge to avoid paying him benefits.
They forced him to have an operation which made him worse.
The doctor was a foreigner and idiot who was on contract to the Department of the Navy, that the U.S. Government gave a license to this jackass.
The fact that he was a civilian doctor but contracted to the Navy / Marine Corp made him exempt from lawsuits.
Later this same disabled Marine with continued failing health problems fought the VA (Veteran Administration) for years to get benefits.
They gave him 10%.
He has repeatedly been back over and over for treatments.
Last week they told him his condition had worsened and he will probably be wheelchair bound within 3-years. The kid is 25-years-old.
The doctors have no say in compensation and benefits.
This is done by non-licensed VA bureaucrats with no medical knowledge.
This person has a family with small children and no health insurance.
What the hell. Mr. Obama, where is the government reform?
Where is the campaign promises to honor and take care of our Vets?
Yet some scum bag illegal can go down and get welfare and food stamps.
This country needs to revise itself, gets its priorities in line and go back to its tradition of what made us great. If that takes another revolution so be it!

Socialism Has Arrived:

Now Obama wants to say how much you can earn, he wants to control your salary. I personally don't have a problem with controlling executive pay and compensation on companies the taxpayer has bailed out. But on corporations that are not receiving any taxpayer money who the hell does Obama think he is to say how much money someone can earn? The American dream is built on working hard and earning a lot, climbing the ladder of success.
People this is just plain old socialism.
Next step the old Soviet Union in America where the state tells you where to live, what job you have, how much you earn, what car, if any you can drive, etc.
This Obama is out of control, and you damn fools elected him, now you get what you deserve.

Get Out of the UN Now....

So if you haven't heard, the Secretary General of the United Nations has called the United States 'The Biggest Deadbeat Donor.'
He wants us to pay more money to this useless politically corrupt inept world council of idiots.
Last year, American taxpayers ponied up nearly $5 billion for the UN system. The U.S. is by far the world's largest donor to the UN. The U.S. provides other assistance for peacekeeping operations. The U.S. responds to emergency appeals. We are always on deck.
Yet, the head of the UN comes to Congress and scolds us for not doing enough? He demands yet more money from us while making little progress in cleaning up the badly-broken UN?
The UN's ineffectiveness is not from a lack of cash, but the result of a corrupt system which wastes money and apologizes for dictatorships.
The UN has been hijacked by a rogues' gallery that uses our funds to undermine peace and security. Dictatorships use the Human Rights Council and Durban 2 conference process to restrict universal freedoms and protect extremists. The UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) aids violent Islamist and partners with money-laundering banks under U.S. sanctions or under U.S. investigation for financing Islamist militants. The UN Development Program (UNDP) pays the legal fees of its corrupt officials but refuses to protect whistle-blowers.
"While Iran, Syria, and North Korea endanger the entire world, the UN is pre-occupied with condemning democratic states like the U.S. and Israel.
The American people are facing serious economic challenges here at home. How can a morally-bankrupt UN ask our taxpayers to bail them out?

The Truth about You and Social Security

A friend of mine has been retired for the past 11 years.
He is 62.
With the downturn in the economy he has virtually lost all of his money because of the Wall Street greed and corruption.
So being a born U.S. Citizen and paying into social security most of his adult life he decided to get early retirement.
Easy you would think, not so fast my uninformed friends.
Upon a visit to the Social Security Administration Office, he discovered he is not entitled to any benefits because he hasn't paid into the system for the last 10-years.
The system is solely based on you paying into it for the 10-years prior to retirement. In other words what you pay, for example, from the age of 16 through 55 is for others to collect.
What you pay from 55 to 65 is yours, so to speak.
So he called Binder and Binder, those lawyers who advertise on TV that they can get your social security benefits, is a total crock of bull.
What the lawyer told my friend is he is not entitled to any benefits.
The lawyer, gave him a simply explanation.
She said, “Paying into social security is like paying auto insurance premiums. If you stop paying, you can't collect because the policy has lapsed.”
I wasn't aware that it was a policy.
Why the hell isn't the money we pay into the system ours?

Liberals are right about one thing....

There should be free condoms handed out in public schools and colleges.
I know this will be controversial but if you don't think so, just visit your local mall.
Lets face it some people should not breed.

I am Back....

Radio Talk Hosts:
People will pay 50 percent of what they make to an Obama tax plan.
That's right. While laying in boredom in the hospital, there is little to do, so I was listening to a radio talk show host discuss President Obama, the stimulus package, and who's going to pay for this debt. The question was, “Would you pay higher taxes under Obama, up to 50 percent of your income?”
The amazing response was yes by many.
The sad thing is several people said they didn't trust the government, but had faith in Obama.
People, we are doing it to ourselves.
We are electing proficient liars who take this country down some primrose path of bullshit and 'Trust Me' attitude.
We have no one to blame, no one whatsoever but ourselves.
