Humans are the enemy! A new study published in Ecology and Society claims that longer life expectancy for us is bad news for the planet. From the study by Aaron Lotz and Craig R. Allen: We found a positive relationship between life expectancy and the percentage of endangered and invasive species in a country…The overall trend in high-income countries with improvements to the Human Development Index, which includes human life expectancy as one of its variables, is toward a disproportionately larger negative impact on a country’s ecological footprint. However, some lower-income countries have a high level of development without a high
If you read Agenda 21 or the President´s Global Development Council documents, it clearly states the non contributors must be weeded out of society. Euthanasia for seniors is a key tactic in that goal and we already have death coaches making appt´s to convince granny her family would be better off if she was dead.
I was contacted to make my HealthCare Home Visit appt... under the name of my HC provider. The return address was HHS in DC so I ignored it.
They kept calling & I had to give a reason why I refused the visit. I told them I have nowhere to put my vicious dogs...
If suicide is your choice, then have at it, save the planet and improve the average IQ. I doubt that would be covered by Obamacare.
That is if you could sign up by getting past the worst computer programming design in history. Probably put together by some Indian living in Calcutta. At least that seems to be the guy I talk to when I have a computer glitch that never seems to be solvable. I always have a nice conversation with him, and they seem to speak the Kings English better than I do.
However, getting back on subject, you live shorter and take Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Detroit and mostly Democrats with you on your grand shot trip. Yes, that would work.
As I have said over and over, the Greens are the most misanthropic people on earth, period, desiring the earth´s human population to be reduced by six-sevenths. Anti-capitalist communist ideologues like Bill Ayers, who heartily approve of mass murder of approximately ten per cent of the population are pikers relative to the Greens, whose policies are designed to increase mortality and morbidity. As others have said, the Greens would better do by example what they desire for the rest of us. Veritably, the world would be a better place without these hypocritical killjoys among us.
WILMINGTON, Del. – More than a month after the launch of Delaware´s health insurance exchange, officials report only four Delawareans enrolled for insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act. As of Tuesday, Delaware´s marketplace guide organizations reported four enrollments, 31 enrollment applications completed and 218 accounts created for possible enrollment. Four community organizations were hired to provide marketplace guides, using a $4 million federal grant. Brandywine Women´s Health Associates in Wilmington reports three enrollments. Christiana Care Health Services in Newark reports one. The Delmarva Foundation for Medical Care in Easton, Maryland, and Westside Family Healthcare in Wilmington both have yet to report a single
There is a special class of news that I’ll label here as “Oh, Florida”; a story coming from the Sunshine State that’s so weird, it makes you go “Of course it’s from Florida.” And we have another one to add to the pile: a Florida man ticked off at someone cutting in the Chick-fil-A drive-thru line took out his handgun and fired at the cutter before running away on foot. Police responded on Monday to the incident and found a bullet casing in the Chick-fil-A parking lot. The suspect was reportedly so furious with the cutter, he drove up, got out
Justin Bieber´s new hobby seems to be getting him into some trouble. The singer´s recent spray-painting outing in Brazil didn´t get him arrested or land him any vandalism charges, but there is an ongoing investigation revolving around his graffiti outing while in the country. E! News has learned that police received a complaint about Biebs and a group of friends doing graffiti on a wall of the former Hotel Nacional in the Joá neighborhood yesterday. Authorities responded to the call about the celeb—who was described as, "young, blond, famous and a rebel," according to police reports—but Bieber was no longer on the
Chris Christie’s blowout win yesterday places him front and center among GOP presidential hopefuls. Much of the discussion among conservatives of his quest for the GOP nomination (assuming he makes that quest) will focus on his alleged electability (a plus) and his alleged moderation (a minus). But is this a sound way of viewing Christie? I have my doubts. As to ideology, some Christie bashers will compare him to Rudy Giuliani. Others will compare him to John McCain and Mitt Romney. Neither comparison will be quite fair. Unlike Giuliani, Christie is a social conservative. He is pro-life and personally opposes gay marriage. And unlike
Amidst accusations of repeated instances of plagiarism, Rand Paul is taking his recently-canned regular column in The Washington Times over to Breitbart News, which seems to have no problem with giving the embattled Senator a new place to share his thoughts—and maybe others´ as well. The popular conservative website to care to namecheck Sen. Paul´s former home in its announcement of the move: Breitbart News reported last month that it has gone through a period of exponential growth. The conservative media outlet has surpassed websites such as Politico, the Daily Beast, and The Washington Times, according to web traffic analytics firm Alexa. Doug
Republican senators take notice when one of their own gets a serious primary challenge. That’s the lesson to learn from Sen. Mike Enzi’s (R-Wyo.) recent campaign finance report, which is chock full of contributions from Enzi’s Senate colleagues, both past and present. Enzi collected more than $150,000 from fellow senators between July 1 and Sept. 30, according to the report filed with the Federal Election Commission. That was about one-sixth of the $847,646 Enzi took in during the third quarter of the year. This year, Enzi has collected $207,500 from his colleagues. A total of 29 sitting senators gave to the Wyoming
Chris Christie was re-elected governor of New Jersey, beating Democrat Barbara Buono 60 percent to 39 percent, although as of this writing all of the votes have not yet been counted. The Republican surpassed his aim of winning over 50 percent of the vote, but fell short of Republican governor Tom Kean’s record win of 69 percent in 1985. Christie improved his showing from 2009 when he received 49 percent to Democrat Jon Corzine’s 45 percent, with the rest going to third-party candidate Christopher Daggett. The governor retained the strong support of men (63 percent), independents (66 percent), seniors (66
Virginia voters today elected a governor from the same party as the sitting president -- breaking a more than three-decade trend. Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s win over Republican Ken Cuccinelli came mainly from strong support among women -- unmarried women in particular -- as well as a sense that the Republican was too conservative. Voters today were more likely to say Cuccinelli is “too conservative” (50 percent) than McAuliffe is “too liberal” (41 percent). Overall, 37 percent say the Republican’s positions on the issues are “about right,” while 48 percent say the same of the Democrat. Meanwhile, only three percent of
The major political parties split Tuesday´s pair of Governor´s races, as Democrat Terry McAuliffe won a close race for an open seat in the swing state of Virginia while Republican Chris Christie romped to a second term in New Jersey. The party that should do the most soul-searching is the GOP. Start with the embarrassing fact that Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli lost to Mr. McAuliffe, a carpetbagger and crony capitalist from central casting. The chief fundraiser for Team Clinton was the first Virginia gubernatorial candidate of a sitting President´s party to win since 1977. The defeat has many fathers, including
Voters in Harris County, Texas rejected a referendum on Tuesday that would have supplied $217 million for renovating the Houston Astrodome. The renovation would have turned the arena from a multipurpose sports stadium into a convention center and exhibition space. With 97 percent of precincts reporting, 53percent have voted against funding the renovation. While voters did not explicitly decided to tear down the stadium, the failed referendum leaves it without any funding. As Judge Ed Emmett, a member of the Commissioners Court that manages the county, said according to the Associate Press, "If we can´t spend tax dollars to repurpose the
Hey, remember when Nancy Pelosi triumphantly predicted that Obamacare would allow artists to have health insurance without worrying about their day jobs? Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or, eh, a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance…. It’s a dream come true, and you are subsidizing it, as this NY Times spotlight piece about two artists in Albequerque who quality for free Obamacare plans demonstrates:
The — meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Just days after buying the wreckage on Morrissey Boulevard at a fire-sale price, the new owner John Henry prints a shockingly ignorant, tone-deaf piece mourning the treatment of the greedy Muslim welfare terrorists who destroyed the Boston Marathon. And Henry, who also owns the Red Sox, allowed the terrorist apologia to run on the very day after his team commemorates both its World Series triumph and the victims of last spring’s Islamist massacre. Someone named Gish Jen, or is it Jen Gish, wrote the following about the political “refugees” who repaid the
The Virginia governor’s race was supposed to prove how the Tea Party destroyed the GOP. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli was supposed to be too extreme and too much of a right-winger to be competitive. McAuliffe, who had a double-digit lead as late as two weeks ago, was coasting to victory on the strength of the national disgust over the government shutdown that hit Northern Virginia with its large number of federal employees hit. But once the shutdown ended and the country began to take notice of the ObamaCare rollout fiasco, the dynamic in Virginia changed. While liberal pundits will probably
How the heck did that happen? Most public polls leading up to Election Day had Democrat Terry McAuliffe coasting to victory, some by double digits, in the Virginia governor’s race. Instead he squeaked by, beating Republican Ken Cuccinelli by less than 3 percentage points. The much-closer-than-expected outcome blunts the narrative that this was a clean win for Democrats going into 2014 and guarantees an intense blame game among Republicans about what might have put Cuccinelli over the top.
It was, I think, the most brazenly mendacious claim an American president has told since Bill Clinton’s finger-wagging insistence that “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” I have in mind Barack Obama’s statement, made earlier this week, in which he said this: “Now, if you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed.” (Emphasis added.) That is not, in fact, what the president said. Not by a country
They said he was “unelectable.” The RNC put only $3 million into this race. Ken was outspent by a margin of something between 4:1 and 10:1, if you believe the Associated Press. The Democrats poured everything into trying to lie to voters and portray Cuccinelli as an extremist — and they barely pulled this one out. Would another $3 million have swung 50,000 votes? The Republicans, starting with Bill Bolling, who undercut Cuccinelli as unelectable have egg all over their faces. This was a winnable election. How did we give this away to Terry McAuliffe? Some serious soul-searching should be
Democrat Terry McAuliffe is projected to win the Virginia gubernatorial race, defeating Republican nominee Ken Cuccinelli in a surprisingly close victory. Fox News projected McAuliffe as the winner Tuesday night. The closely watched raced pitted a Tea Party-backed Republican and an establishment Democrat locked in an expensive, ideological battle whose outcome is expected to set a course for the 2014 and 2016 elections -- in large part forcing the GOP to consider whether a strong conservative candidate is the party’s best pick to win a national election. Cuccinelli, trailing late by single digits, tried unsuccessfully to use voter dissatisfaction with ObamaCare to stage
Yesterday’s exit polls from New Jersey won’t easily be forgotten. They will be cited and repeated endlessly by pundits and Governor Chris Christie’s supporters to bolster his case for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Any Republican who can get 60 percent of the vote in a blue state is bound to become the subject of presidential speculation. But when a Republican who is pro-life and has fought a running battle with labor unions and Democrats over taxes and budgets does so, he parachutes into the first tier of any discussion of future candidates. That Christie did this while winning
Many insurance executives whose companies are offering plans on the federal exchanges are frustrated with the realities that the rollout of the Affordable Care Act have laid bare. They’re talking about it, yes, but prying a quote from them on the record is a different matter. Health care consultant Larry Thompson says that for them, speaking up would be “suicide.” “They are afraid to say anything because they don’t want HHS all over them,” he says. ”A lot of the carriers to Medicaid and Medicare work, they are afraid of retribution.” Last week, health care consultant Bob Laszewski told CNN
Voters elected Bill de Blasio New York’s 109th mayor Tuesday in one of the most sweeping victories in history — returning City Hall to Democratic control for the first time in 20 years. De Blasio, who at 6-foot-5 will become the city’s tallest leader ever, breezed in after waves of voters embraced his progressive vision and vows to move the city in a new direction. And according to the mayor-in-waiting, those changes could come right out of the gate. “We will have things to say tomorrow,” de Blasio said after casting a ballot with his family near their Park Slope,
A spelling mistake in the words ´not recommended´ on the Obamacare website led to the site going down, it was revealed today in internal notes from ´war room´ meetings of experts scrabbling to breathe life into the shambolic operation. The error limited the choices Obamacare shoppers were offered in October and often presented them with overpriced options. Ultimately, at least some of the website´s many outages were brought about by this simple typo, as technicians struggled to give the public an experience that mirrored President Obama´s promises. ´In states where the federal government helps run these marketplaces, the average American will have more
President Barack Obama heard an earful at the White House Wednesday from Senate Democrats running for re-election next year who are fuming about the Affordable Care Act’s rocky rollout.During a two-hour meeting that was not on the president’s public schedule, the president met with 15 Senate Democrats facing the voters next year, as well as Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Michael Bennet, D-Colo. Sen. Mark Begich of Alaska issued a release after the meeting torching the administration. “It is simply unacceptable for Alaskans to bear the brunt of the Administration’s mismanagement of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and
The polls are now closed in Virginia, and Fox News can report that Democrat Terry McAulliffe has a slight lead over Republican Ken Cuccinelli, although it is too early to call the race. McAuliffe is faring well among women voters and is also performing strongly in the Washington D.C. suburbs in Northern Virginia. Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis remains a distant third, although he is garnering a fair amount of votes from young people. As polls closed, so did the hard-fought Virginia gubernatorial race between an establishment Democrat and a Republican who warned that a vote for his rival was a
Liar! Pinocchio! Deceiver! With all the charges flying against President Obama in the on-going effort to stop ObamaCare it’s time for a reality check. Having failed to kill the Affordable Care Act in Congress by shutting down the government the opposition is currently taking delight in charging the president with lying to the public when he said anyone who likes their current healthcare plan will be able to keep it under the new law. It turns out that some people in the individual care market – about 5 percent of the overall insurance market -- are having their insurance policies
