What the federal government and the lakota school district have in common

During the government shutdown we have seen national monuments and war memorials barricaded. We have seen national parks shut down, we have seen thugs enforcing these barricades while the President plays golf.

With the Lakota Levy attempts, we see cuts to school busing, to extra curricular activities including sports and after school clubs, all the while the teachers still get paid more on average than the rest of the community and all the while they get over three months off per year while many in the community are lucky to get 2-3 weeks off for the whole year.

All the teachers at these schools get large salaries and nice big pensions, while the rest of the community is lucky to hold onto their jobs at all.

Now with the latest levy attempt, we are asked to part with more of our hard earned money to fund ‘technology and security’. To which I can’t help but incredulously ask the question “what for?”

Why do we need more technology and more security, when our students already have state of the art learning centers?

Why do we need to be extorted for more of our hard earned money when the teachers are still getting their annual raises?

Why won’t the school district cut its costs and balance its budgets, instead of raising its debt ceiling and asking for ever more cash from the struggling tax payer?

You see the Lakota School District, among many others, is just like the federal government; corrupt to the core. They simply refuse to balance their budgets and make hard cuts where necessary.

common 1

Both the teachers of the Lakota district and the congressmen in Washington still get their pay, still get amazing benefits, still get tons of time off, still get to enjoy lives of relative luxury, all the while the tax payer is not only footing the bill, but is finding it harder and harder just to pay their own bills!

And what happens when we say NO to new taxes? Well, they get all upset and use the same old thuggish union tactics; they cut out all the nice convenient stuff and hit us where it hurts. The schools get rid of busing, the federal government shuts down the parks. The schools shut down after school clubs, the federal government barricades monuments. What a pathetic situation we find ourselves in when both our federal and local governments behave like spoiled children!

What exactly is it that these teachers, this school district is trying to teach our children anyway? That its OK to act like a spoiled brat when you don’t get your way? That you should be spiteful to others and cry and cry until you get what you want? Where is the sense of responsibility? Where are they teaching our kids to make tough choices and to do the right thing? Where are they teaching our kids about respect and reasoning?

I feel bad for my generation growing up in this ongoing recession, but I dread to think what it must be like for the school kids of today. We’ve got whiny brats in Washington, and whiny brats in the school district. What a sad state of affairs.

I truly hope there are at least enough grown ups in the Lakota School District next month to vote NO for this stupid levy, and start pushing for fiscal responsibility and to ask the school administrators to act like grown ups.

Obama go home

Mr President, it is time for you to step down. Your actions over the last few weeks have shown the few remaining people of the United States who were still holding out that your intentions were good, that you have no good intentions at all.

Your campaign of pain on the American people is utterly despicable, and your continuing golf trips show just how out of touch you are.

go home 3

You know that you have committed impeachable offenses. You know your administration is rotten to the core. Whether you truly are a Marxist, or just a guy who thought his ideas were better than the last guy’s, no longer matters. Your presidency has become a miserable failure.

go home 6

You tried to provoke race riots with the Zimmerman trial. You tried to crash the stock market during the beginning of the government shutdown. You’ve spent huge sums of money (far more than it would have taken to keep them open) on barricading national monuments dedicated to our greatest citizens who fought and died for the country that we all live in.

go home 7go home 1

Your Obamacare has begun just as we said it would; as a complete and utter failure. You promised to cut spending and lower the national debt. You’ve done the opposite.

go home 2

Mr President, I don’t know what your goals are; whether its the socialization of the USA, the globalization of the world into a one world government, or perhaps you just do whatever your masters tell you to do. I don’t know. But what I do know is; your presidency has been a disaster. We’ve had the slowest ‘recovery’ in living memory, and jobs are scarce.

go home 5

If you want to retire with dignity, I suggest you formally resign from office, before impeachments begin.

go home 8

Now I’m sure you saw those protesters outside the White House yesterday, throwing barricades in from of the lawn. Those protesters are timid in comparison to those of your own party who will be lining the streets when the food stamp programs run out, or the stock market collapses. What will you do then? What happens when they take to the streets, and you have no more friends left?

go home 4

So we’re asking you now to step down and just go home. Wherever that may be. If you want to retire to Hawaii, Indonesia, or even Kenya. I don’t care. I don’t know where you’re truly from, so you should just choose a place to go back to. Just leave us all alone. Leave the American people to make up their own minds. Leave the constitution alone.

Mr Obama, please, just go home.

Is Obama preparing an attack on the American people?

In an unprecedented move this week, President Obama fired two of the nations top military chiefs.

PRESIDENT OBAMA FIRES HIGH RANKING NUCLEAR CHIEFS

While his administration continues to spend large sums of money blockading national monuments, and ‘inflicting as much pain as possible’ on the American people during the supposed ‘government shutdown’ he has been busy changing people around in the military.

Also this week Barack Obama’s approval rating has plummeted to 37%, which is the lowest George Bush Jr polled during his two terms in office. With three more years left until the end of his presidency. Is Barack Obama planning to stage a false flag attack on the American people to get them to unite behind him? Or is he planning on using his own private Army, the DHS with its billion rounds of hollow point ammunition to stage a conflict against the American people?

Another thing that happened recently is the signing on the UN small arms treaty. Is Obama planning on allowing the UN onto our soil to aid in the confiscation of our firearms? Is Barack Obama’s firing of top military officials an attempt to promote officers who are more in line with his statist ambitions?

All of this is very disturbing, especially from a president who is already hugely unpopular, who is already being called for impeachment, who is already defying the constitution, and who openly calls for pain on the american people so that he can get his disastrous healthcare bill funded despite resentment from an overwhelming majority of the American people.

Americans are already starting to openly rebel against the President and his draconian policies. The tearing down of his ‘barrycades’ earlier today is a clear indication that we the people will not be stopped, and that we are tired of his attempts to bury this nation.

obama attack 1 obama attack 2 obama attack 3 obama attack 4 obama attack 5 obama attack 6

So what is Obama preparing to do? Is he planning a false flag attack? Or a confiscation of our firearms; which would inevitably end up in civil war? What do you think?

Demonstrators dump barriers in front of the White House

This weekend civil disobedience was in full swing. Although the mainstream media either ignored it, or tried to say that it was a failure or a small protest, it was anything but that.

At approximately midday protesters took down the barriers at the Lincoln and WWII memorials and walked them over to the white house. Police in full riot gear stood between the protesters and the white house fence, before the protesters began shouting “shame on you” to the officers. The police then stepped aside allowing the protesters to dump the barriers in front of the white house gates in a triumphant show of civil disobedience against Obama’s campaign of pain during the government shutdown.

Day 3: Negative US Media Coverage Fails to Stop Constitutional Truckers and Veterans Moving on DC

1-Ride-for-the-Consitution-#T2SDA
21st Century Wire
 says…

131012-dct-190UPDATE: More DC Truckers along with many other vehicles have continued to pour into the nation’s capital today, as day three of Ride for the Constitution commences.

Convoy spokesman, Ernest “General” Lee (photo, left) was busy Saturday coordinating new incoming convoys. 

From early Sunday morning, Lee reported that the number vehicles on the roads have been building. Lee stated, “We got flags flying, horns honking, rigs, trucks and other vehicles stretching 10 miles along interstate 495 in Maryland. I cannot see an end to it, everyone has their flashers on.”

“We’re running at 42mph, and these people in the other lane are riding alongside us. We’re sending a message.”

Lee has also led the truckers’ effort to join up with the thousands of US Veterans and their families who are also pouring into Washington DC this morning for demonstrations at both the World War II Memorial and the Iwo Jima Memorial. 

“Right now we have a detachment of bobtail trucks carrying veterans going downtown to the WWII Memorial, and another detachment headed to the US Marine Iwo Jima Memorial. We’re surrounded by supporters of the vets.” said Lee.

#T2SDA_#T4VETS_WWII_Memorial_Vets_Truckers_ProtestFrom 8:00am EST, after a man with wire cutters cut through government-imposed barriers at the war monument, thousands of protesters (photo. left) and US Veteran supporters entered the World War II Memorial, with more pouring in. Demonstrators were joined at 9:30am EST by a mile long convoy of #T2SDA + #T4VETS big rig trucks, four-wheel drive and motor vehicles. Despite a blackout in US mainstream media coverage, independent U Stream live video feeds have been up documenting events on the ground there. 

At 9:00am EST, Metropolitan police vehicles reported to be blocking streets in the immediate area around the WWII Memorial, but no reports of harassment of demonstrators by law enforcement as of that time. 

According to one veteran on site, former US Marine Will Gonzalez, “Police are helping block the roads for us. They are definitely supporting us. There are at least a few hundred people walking from the WWII memorial towards the White House.”

At 11:00am EST, GMN live reported that hundreds of protesters headed for Washington DC’s Lincoln Memorial, torn down the government barriers, and began occupying the monument.

At 12:00pm EST, demonstrators took down the barriers from the both WWII and Lincoln Memorials, and carried them over the White House and dumped them in front of the White House gates. According to GMN reporter Will Gonzalez, “A group of police with masks and full riot gear moved between us and the White House, but after the crowd shouted ‘shame on you’, the police backed away”.

The corporate mainstream media have been working overtime all week – not to cover any facts on the ground – but to brand this weekend’s DC trucker protest as failure. From before the protest began on Friday, headlines appeared to be uncannily coordinated, and clearly designed to deflect support away from Ride for the Constitution’s convoys. 

As is normally done when they band together to promote US involvement in illegal wars, most notably with the White House’s botched effort to launch a war in Syria, here’s how the corporate media cartel tried to dampen support for truckers’ constitutional effort: USA Today said, “Rain, not trucker protest, slows D.C.-area traffic“. FOX News said, “Dozens, not thousands, show up for DC trucker protest.” Reason.com said, “Trucker D.C. Beltway Shutdown Plan a Hoax“.Politico said, “Trucker Protest a Bust“.In probably the greatest example of mainstream media going out of it’s way to distract from the real DC trucker event, America’s alleged ‘paper of record’ devoted it’s only coverage of events to a planted, fake photo, which went viral online via Twitter. Yesterday afternoon, one of the Post’s dedicated core of jobsworth desktop journalists, Caitlin Dewey, published an article,”Viral photo from Beltway trucker protest actually from an event last May“. Sadly, this was all the Washington Post could manage in coverage – for an event happening in their own back garden.  

The irony of course, is that it was the Washington Post itself, who helped made this very same planted photo go viral early on Friday when they featured the photo in question in their own Twitter news feed which ran alongside of their earlier DC traffic article mentioning truckers. Here the  screenshot, recorded on Friday Oct 11, at 12:39 EST:
#T2SDA_Twitter
There were other mild efforts over the weekend to cover events. Local NBC Washington affiliate WBIR was one of the only corporate media outlets who managed to make the effort to connect with Ride for the Constitution, sending a journalist to ride with a trucker on Saturday morning. 

“Truckers protesting the actions of President Obama and Congress continue to slowly circle the Capital Beltway on Friday. They say they are fed up with what many of them consider an abuse of the Constitution.

WUSA9′s Bruce Leshan traveled with the convoy for a while. At noon, he reported that he was traveling approximately 2 miles per hour, with the traffic almost completely stopped…”

The filth of socialized medicine

As many of you know, I was born and raised in the UK. I have seen the NHS (National Health Service) indeed I was born in one of these glorious socialist hospitals.

As many of you also know, I absolutely and emphatically deplore anything socialist, including said healthcare system. As Ringo star once said ‘Everything the government touches turns to crap’ and this can be said of the healthcare system in Britain.

health 1

While the US system might not be perfect (and I draw it down to government interference to begin with) we can all agree that it has the best services to offer. The US outspends every other nation on the planet for healthcare, and it really does show in its services. We have more beds, more equipment and more staff.

Some of my friends and family in England will argue with me about this, saying that the US healthcare system is too expensive, and that we should have FREE healthcare like Britain does. It truly does grind my gears to hear them say this because they are all mostly very intelligent people and I love them dearly. On this particular issue though they are dead wrong. In fact, I would go as far to say; ignorance is bliss.

The UK healthcare system is a broken socialist nightmare, with long waiting lines for treatments in germ ridden hallways. While my friends and family claim that it’s free, and that everyone is covered, I have to point out ‘covered by what?’

In the UK, if you get injured; you get treated, in the US, if you get injured; you get treated. There’s not much difference, except that in the US if you don’t have health insurance you’ll get a large bill for the service. This doesn’t mean you won’t get treated, just that you’ll have to pay for it. There are systems set up to help you pay for this service. And while it can be a financial burden on your family, the choice for health coverage is your own, and there are plenty of services to help you pay for said treatment.

In the UK if you get cancer, you can wait weeks or even months for treatment; the difference between life and death. In the US, you can receive treatment immediately, with far better resources at hand to help combat the disease.

I remember a story my friend told me once about his grandfather; it was discovered that he had heart problems and urgently needed a quadruple heart bypass surgery. Without the surgery he was told he would have only 6 months left to live. He was put on a one year waiting list. The socialist system he had paid into his entire life had failed him in his hour of need. Luckily for him, his old friends all got together and set aside some money to send him to another country for private treatment.

Another story; this time about my sister. She gave birth to her son in the UK, and was put on a ward with three other mothers who had just given birth. My Mum told me the story the other day, of how the IV was held in place by masking tape, and how there was a restroom at the end of the hallway, that all the mothers who had just given birth had to walk down in order to relieve themselves. Add on top of this the fact that in order to free up bed space, they discharged my sister the day after she had given birth, before my nephew was fully stabilized and had begun feeding. The next day he was rushed into hospital because his blood sugar levels weren’t right, and he was shaking a lot. They ended up spending the next week in hospital to monitor him.

Compare this with my sister in law, who gave birth to her son in the US last year. She had her own private room and rest room. There were clean beds galore and sparkling new equipment decorating the hallways and private birthing rooms. There was even a food delivery service for meals. Compare this to the food service in UK hospitals, one of which is the hospital I was born in:

Revealed: The NHS hospital kitchens overrun by mice and cockroaches… and how three in four break food hygiene rules

By ROB COOPER

PUBLISHED: 08:10 EST, 13 October 2013 | UPDATED: 09:17 EST, 13 October 2013

Hundreds of hospital kitchens across the country are dirty, have cockroach and mice infestations or are stocking out of date food, a MailOnline investigation has revealed.

Inspectors found that three-quarters of kitchens are flouting basic food hygiene rules while nearly a third were not properly cleaned.

Six NHS hospitals had mice, two had rats, five had cockroaches and another hospital had an unspecified problem with ‘pests’.

 

 

 

The figures will raise fears that patients are being put at risk by dirty kitchens and staff ignoring proper hygiene policy.

Nationwide, hospitals spend as little as £3 a day per patient – and 82,000 meals a day are thrown out.

Campaigners said it is unacceptable that the public never find out about dirty kitchens ‘until they are teased out using Freedom of Information requests’.

An analysis of 769 environmental health inspection reports revealed that 581 hospitals across Britain are breaking the rules.

Inspectors found 229 kitchens were dirty while a further 62 were stocking out of date food.

The MailOnline obtained copies of reports carried out by environmental health teams under the Freedom of Information Act.

Inspectors at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup, Kent, found mouse droppings and a ‘serious cockroach infestation that posed an imminent risk to health’ in an undercroft last November.

The Bexley Council workers found there had been a cockroach ‘population explosion’ – but it had been missed by pest control teams.

As you can see, while many of my friends and family claim that his service is ‘free’ I have to point out that it is not, and that their taxes pay for it. That money would be better spent on private healthcare. When they tell me healthcare is too expensive and that the poor will suffer, I tell them that there are charities that can help with getting the poor coverage when they need it most.

The same people that tell me the US healthcare system is too expensive are the same people who deny there is anything wrong with the UK health system. While I agree there are flaws in the US health system. I’ll take it any day over Britain’s socialist healthcare system. The difference in service is undeniable.

Civil disobedience and the end of the Obama regime

This week marks the end of the Obama Regime; if the republicans hold strong in the house.

Barack Obama has miscalculated dramatically in his staged shutdown of the government; with his ‘barrycading’ of national monuments and national parks.

We the people will not be stopped. Across the nation American’s are giving the government the middle finger, and sneaking into parks anyway. Veterans have stormed memorials, and earlier this week a patriot was found mowing the grass of the Lincoln memorial.

South Carolina Patriot Mows Lincoln Memorial Lawn! Becomes National Hero!

A few weeks ago we had the million biker march on DC, and this week we have the million trucker march to lock up the beltway around the capitol.

There are protests outside the capitol, and while Obama plays golf, the nation grows ever more angry over his arrogance.

With the abysmal failure of Obamacare’s grand opening this week, the blockading of national monuments, and the orders to inflict as much pain as possible on the American people, Barack Obama’s popularity is fading quickly.

This week Barack Obama is no more popular that Bush was during his lowest point, at a tragic 37%.

obama reg 7

The end of the Obama regime is nigh, just so long as republicans stay strong in the house, and you the people continue to pressure them. It is now only a matter of time.

Obamacare’s failure to launch

The first few days of Obamacare are exactly how we predicted it; a complete and utter failure.

EXCLUSIVE: Just 51,000 people completed Obamacare applications during the website’s first week, out of tens of millions of Americans in 36 states

By DAVID MARTOSKO, U.S. POLITICAL EDITOR

PUBLISHED: 14:29 EST, 10 October 2013 | UPDATED: 11:50 EST, 11 October 2013

Just 51,000 people completed Obamacare applications during the first week the Healthcare.gov website was online, according to two sources inside the Department of Health and Human Services who gave MailOnline an exclusive look at the earliest enrollment numbers.

The career civil servants, who process data inside the agency, confirmed independently that just 6,200 Americans applied for health insurance through the problem-plagued website on October 1, the day it first opened to the public.

Neither HHS nor the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services would comment on the record about the numbers. Enroll America, on Obama administration-related organization that aims to help Americans sign up, only replied to a request for information a day after this article was first published.

‘I don’t have any hard numbers beyond what HHS and the state-based exchanges have released,’ said spokesman Justin Nisly, who insisted that Americans have been ‘enthusiastic’ and ‘grateful’ for Obamacare.

The White House did not respond to emails seeking comment.

But several administration officials have claimed this month that they didn’t have access to the kinds of raw figures MailOnline obtained from the people who work for them. And the anemic totals suggest a far lower level of interest in coverage through the Affordable Care Act than the Obama administration has hoped to see.

SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEOS

 

 

Texas Rep. Kevin Brady, a Republican who chairs the House Ways & Means Health Subcommittee, said that ‘if the numbers are accurate,’ they show ‘that relatively few people have navigated the challenges of the first step of the process – roughly the population of a small town in my district.’

‘The White House and HHS have continually claimed they did not have these figures,’ Brady told MailOnline. ‘If they do, they have misled the Congress and the American people.’

The low numbers also reflect a level of technological frustration on the part of Americans whose attempts to investigate their new health insurance options have been met with crashes, error messages and interminable delays.

CNN host Wolf Blitzer agreed on Wednesday that the White House should consider granting Republicans’ demands for a one-year delay of the rule requiring individual taxpayers to buy insurance, given the failings of the glitch-prone enrollment website that has produced more headaches than new customers.

‘If they weren’t fully ready, they should accept the advice that a lot of Republicans are giving them,’ Blitzer said. ‘Delay it another year, get it ready, and make sure it works’

Healthcare.gov provides enrollment services for Americans in 36 states; the remaining 14 states and the District of Columbia, which operate enrollment programs in their own exchanges, represent 33.7 per cent of the U.S. population, according to census projections.

If the state-run exchanges were to have a similar response rate for six months, the national enrollment total would be approximately 2 million.

That number is less than 29 per cent of the 7 million the Obama administration would need, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, in order to balance the new health insurance system’s books and keep it from financial collapse.

‘The administration’s goal is seven million people in the first year,’ Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist, a long-time Obamacare opponent, told MailOnline. ‘We are not on track for anything like seven million. New Coke was retired for being a smaller disappointment.’

‘There was no good reason to hide these number,’ he said. ‘This is not keeping a secret from the Russians or the Syrians. … Why lie about this, for crying out loud?’

‘These numbers reflect what we all know: Obamacare is a disaster,’ Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn told MailOnline. ‘It is time for the president to admit Obamacare is not working and that the American people deserve better.’

Spokespersons for five different Democratic senators declined to provide comment, with most saying they are paying greater attention to the debt-ceiling and government-shutdown standoffs that have gripped Washington, D.C. since before Oct. 1.

 House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee chair Darrell Issa, a California Republican, said the small enrollment numbers are a symptom of a larger problem.

‘Far more people have been unable to complete their applications because of crashing websites or impossible wait times than have successfully enrolled,’ said Issa. ‘Meanwhile, the clock is ticking and the window for open enrollment gets smaller every day.’

Issa said Wednesday during a committee hearing on Capitol Hill that ‘in just the past decade, the federal government cancelled at least fifteen major IT projects after wasting $10 billion on their development. But none of those costly mistakes were anywhere near as big or complex, as Obamacare.’

The White House aims to see the health care exchanges enroll at least 2.7 million young, healthy people between the ages of 18 and 35, whose monthly premiums are needed to offset the cost of health care for older, sicker Americans.

It’s unclear how many of the early enrollees fall in that age group.

A projected enrollment total of 2 million would also represent just 4 per cent of the overall number who could participate.

‘More than 50 million Americans qualify for the Obamacare exchanges,’ Americans for Limited Government vice president Rick Manning pointed out, claiming that ‘this paltry response is a clear rejection of the system.’

It remains possible, according to the sources who provided the enrollment data, that overall rates of enrollment will tick up after the much-maligned healthcare.gov website is retrofitted with technology fixes that allow more Americans to navigate it smoothly.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney drew criticism on Monday after he boasted that website response times were cut by one-third after the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services implemented virtual ‘waiting rooms’ that allowed users to trickle in according to the load the government’s servers could handle. 

Another flood of customers could hypothetically come in after Jan. 1, the sources said, if a significant number of private employers cancel their employee benefit plans and dump their workers into the Affordable Care Act’s health care exchanges.

Carney reiterated on Monday that the administration would ‘release enrollment data on regularly, monthly intervals.’

‘I’m not sure when that begins,’ he told reporters, ‘but I’m sure we’ll let you know in plenty of time so you can plan and put it on your calendar.’

 That night, Comedy Central host Jon Stewart asked Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on ‘The Daily Show’ how many Americans had enrolled in Obamacare.

‘I can’t tell you,’ the secretary answered, ‘because I don’t know.’

An unnamed senior White House official told CNN host Jake Tapper on Monday that the administration would start releasing numbers after November 1, and would combine data from healthcare.gov with those from more than a dozen states that run their own health insurance exchanges, in order ‘to have a good picture of what’s happening across the country.’

Sen. Ted Cruz, the feisty tea party standard-bearer who led a lengthy quasi-filibuster last month that raised the profile of what Republicans say are Obamacare’s legal and philosophical shortcomings, said Thursday that ‘every day our concerns are validated as we learn more about how the law can’t deliver on its promises.’

‘The law has failed on every single measure,’ Cruz told MailOnline. ‘It does not make healthcare more affordable or accessible. It does the opposite.’

Tea Party Patriots national coordinator Jenny Beth Martin said Thursday that the Obamacare enrollment numbers were unlikely to keep pace with the numbers of Americans who are losing their insurance as the program goes into effect.

‘Over 800,000 people in New Jersey alone have lost their current health insurance in the last month,’ Martin said, ‘yet nationwide only 51,000 people have received health insurance from Obamacare. The numbers just do not add up.’ 

Overlaid on top of Obamacare’s rocky launch has been a partial government shutdown whose broad personnel layoffs have compounded what was already a difficult rollout.

On Wednesday a press spokesperson who answered a Department of Health and Human Services press line told MailOnline to allow at least 24 hours for a comment – one which never came anyway.

‘We’re in furlough status right now, so we’re short-staffed,’ she said. ‘All our requests are going through email. Drop us a line, and if anyone’s available, they’ll get back to you.’
