Gov. Jindal is ignoring
his people´s needs

New Orleans Times-Picayune, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/16/2012 1:28:03 PM

With every decision Gov. Bobby Jindal makes, the message becomes clearer to hundreds of thousands of Louisiana residents who are uninsured: The state has no interest in helping you. Bruce Greenstein, secretary of Louisiana´s Department of Health and Hospitals, sent a letter Wednesday to federal health officials refusing to take part in the creation of a health care exchange where uninsured residents will be able to buy affordable policies from private insurers. The state´s decision won´t stop the creation of the exchange, which is part of President Barack Obama´s health care reform plan, but will leave it to the federal

The election is ten days passed and out come the knives for Governor Jindal. He must be a good choice for President.

Like the last election, the mainstream media and their buddies at the DNC are getting started on the destruction of the Republican field.

If zero´s plan is so damn good, WHY not set up federal offices to run the stupid thing? The new orleans picky un would have to support zero as they sold out their own people to the highest bedder many years ago.

There will not be affordable policies available through private companies. This will never, ever happen.

Sorry, forget to give a hat-tip to Limbaugh. Limbaugh opined the reason for Obamacles moving the date is to give time for all his pet newspaper editors to flay the governors who are refusing to take part in health care exchanges.

The "STATE" cannot provide insurance for anyone without first taking the money from taxpayers who are having a tough enough time paying for their own insurance especially now the Obamacare is kicking and costs are rising.

Enough of this coddling lifestyles of the non-workers or content part time 8-16 hours per week workers just enough to get big Earned Income and child tax credits refunded on average of $4,500.

I think some people really do respond without one clue what is in the article. Jindal is simply not putting his rubber stamp on Obamacare because his state, like all states, is bankrupt. Louisiana shoudl not be made to pay one cent of this monstrosity. If this is what Obama and his takers want then the Fed should foot the whole bill. The exchanges will be around a max of 10 years anyway as the private insurance industry will be destroyed by Obamacare so why waste huge amount of state funds putting together a program MEANT to fail.

Teachable moment here, Bobby. This is what you can expect from here on out. The craven fear of calling a parasite entitlement junkie a parasite entitlement junkie will not induce the parasite entitlement junkies to vote for you. You´ll get out-pandered by the Democrats every time. You and/or Rubio and/or Jeb Bush are going to find that out in 2016 when you get your butts handed to you again.

#6 and others speak for me. Let the feds run the exchange. Why have a different bureaucracy in each state.

The feds will just end up bullying the state exchange anyway. And Washington will change the regulations and details at any time for political reasons.

As I suggested elsewhere the feds should contract exchange operation to the post office. It needs more revenue and already has buildings and staff almost everywhere.

Postmaster Of Waco and Chairman Of The Death Panel seems like a nice title.

Jindal is playing the games three moves deep.

There is no enumerated power for the feds to wade into individual States and meddle in health care. When they do, constitutional legal challenges will bog down ObamaNoCare for years.

Jindal is calling the federal bluff. The ball is in Hussein’s court. He punted the stand-off to February, but he’ll have to stand up at some point.

Daily Mail [UK], by Edward Lucas    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/16/2014 6:25:55 PM     Post Reply
Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed.

Russia Spent More of Its Wealth

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

If there was a standard operating manual for the secret services of the world´s dodgier regimes, it would no doubt omit any mention of the term "agent provocateur". In Russia, Burma, Iran et al, state-backed agents never get involved in causing trouble. Instead, there are only "patriotic local citizens", who, unable to contain themselves, rise up in righteous indignation against those who might betray the nation. That, if Russia is to be believed, is exactly what it happening in eastern Ukraine right now. According to a statement this morning from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, there are "no Russian

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
