President Obama and Elizabeth Warren have stated that all small businesses who made it, made it because of what the government did for them. Warren even stated that because the police was there to protect the property, etc that is the reason why small businesses made it.

Well with that logic, it was small entrepreneurs that made the fire truck, cop car, gun that the cop used to protect the small business's property, the car that got the person to work. If they want to go down that road, lets go down that road. I'm just saying'.

Here is a link with Elizabeth ranting about small business. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htX2usfqMEs

Just saw an editorial that stated that the country will go over a fiscal cliff if taxes aren't raised. How about we do this, since 49% of the population doesn't pay taxes why don't we get those people to start paying taxes?   I know that non-working house moms are lumped in that figure as well as most college students, etc.  In that group are those that get paid money by the government that they don't work for and they don't pay any taxes...how about those people start paying taxes. Maybe then the middle class doesn't have to pay even more into taxes. I'm tired of my taxes going up, while everyone else's tax rates drop.  Also, those that get free money and don't pay taxes I think feel that they deserve more, and if I heard that I'm a heartless jerk because I don't like those that have been living off of government assistance for generations.  My tax money pays their welfare and they pretty much spit on the middle class, when they should be kissing our asses.  This country has gone from the American dream to the American entitlement.  Even the current administration says that we have to be good citizens and do our part, what about those others who make up the other half of the US? They should do their fair share as well.

I was also listening to SIRIUS left yesterday and what I was hearing was driving me crazy. They were talking about how taxes should be raised because  someone who is considered wealthy in this country should pay more taxes and that tax money given to someone who makes $25,000 a year.  How is that fair for either party?  Why should one class  give money to those that don't make the same?It makes the government look good because they look like the "Robin Hoods" of the present.

Sorry I haven't been writing like I should. I have been away on travel for work.  I'm sure you will get over it since I already have.

Anyway, whats on the political front today. Haven't heard anything really news worthy in the last couple weeks or so, other than the plain ol' crap you get during an election.  Oh, since I have been back in the US, gas prices have shot up a bit. WTF is that all about?  Did we piss of Saudi Arabia (KSA) or something?  Who cares really?

I will let you go for now. I will write something more later.

Ok people, I know it has been a while since I last posted, but I have been busy so suck it up. Recently the SCOTUS has deemed that the new health care bill was Constitutional. I'm down for that, but at the same time I'm  actually on the fence on this one.

See, I don't think the government has the right to get into every aspect in our lives, but at the same time this new bill helps me out too. My son has autism and my current health care provider has dropped him and no longer covers his autism therapies.  To top it off, my son's provider also stopped taking my insurance provider due to late payments, or postponing as much and long as they could..pretty much a major dick move if you ask me.  We were not the only ones affected, the others that had the same health care provider had the same issues as well.  What really pisses me off is that I only get a few health care providers to choose from, but none that I actually want...which is bullshit if you ask me.

I look at this new bill as a start to provide healthcare for everyone, and also now people will learn to know what is now law and what isn't. Before if I asked an HR person about coverage I either get a blank stare because they didn't know or they would just tell me they didn't know. Now that the bill is out for everyone to see, maybe now people will have a better understanding as to what their rights are in regards to their healthcare.

What I do have a question about is how in the hell is someone who doesn't have health insurance currently going to be able to afford it now? And to top that off, if they don't get it by a certain time they face a penalty.  How is that going to work for those that receive government money to support themselves and their kids when they can't afford it now, and then pay the fine? I think there is something amiss here, that we are not seeing.

All I know is that I'm still on the fence with this new bill being passed, but at the same time it helps me a hell of a lot too. So...we will see what will happen and go from there I guess. That is the only option I have now anyway.

Later guys, till next time.
