Ahh yes up close to hear the symphony.
….. The Price Of Inequality
People from around the world heard the shot that crippled the financial markets. Shot originated from our Wall Street! Suspects were the Banks to big at fail.
Years of 2007 to 2008 exposed the flaw of the means and ways the USA defined their GDP. Foreign nations discovered that Inequality measurements were not represented.!
.. Symphonizing of the siphoning of wealth from the improvised lower classes to be horded by the 1% minority. Orchestrating with fine attentive desires of greed. Filling their coffers’ treasuries and outsourcing their horde for safe keeping from the Tax distributing environment of their beloved nation.
Melodies of bankruptcy erupted across the nation for over 8 million families homes. Tuning with increasing unemployment. Enveloping all within the finical ballroom. Students waltzing with tens’ of thousand of debt with no work available. Alas as the bell tolled for them at midnight, as they returned to their homeless rewards.
Millions more would soon accompany them with lost savings and defunct pensions. Safety nets that once retained them from such desolation, were sold to the highest bidder of their political domains. Strongly suggestive signing calling for the forced retirement to the improvised laborers.
Americans dreams of secured homes sold for less than its hard earned purchase. Vacancy was the norm through out the nation. Disrepair and lost of upkeep to properties festered on the infrastructures of a once proud majestic nation.
After shocks from the Great Recession will continue to affect this molding Nation until at least 2018 before complete repairs can be considered accomplished. The Price Of Inequality was merely illuminated for a brief moment in time, of the cost of inequality. Inequality has been eroding this nation for over a century. Inequality in the past 40 years has accelerated similar to the years before the 1929 Great Depression with similar results.
Within the bastions of the horded wealth, the symphony played on. Rejoicing in the price of inequality. Distributions of wealth being divided up with the 1% receiving one fifth of the nations income with the largest share to be rewarded to the 0.1% to the tune of 33% of the national income would be transferred to their coffers due to their wealth of assets. Some of which is rent control of national resources, politics and of course the media. Some assigned to continuously orchestrate the tune of A La Propaganda.
Tunes that are required to distract any observation of siphoning as was occurring during the years of 2002 to 2007, to the tune of 63% of the National Income to the 1%.
Alas had this been more evenly distributed the ballroom would still be overflowing with celebrations of prosperity for one and all.

Right wing, no facts, no substance, no comprehension, etc, etc.


Liberal International Free Trade Markets are taking a bite out of our overpriced medical Health Care systems. One of many examples is Mr.Shopenn of Warsaw Indiana, who required a hip replacement recently. Arthritis had set in making standing a painful exhausting effort even for short periods of time. He had the necessary health insurance but was told they would not cover it. They determined the arthritis was pre existing condition from an earlier sports injury.
Desperation motivated Mr.Shopenn to seek his solution. First he obtained a large discount thru a friend for a hip joint implant for $13,000. Then how much would the hospital charge to have it installed. Best price he could find was $65,000, Not including surgeons fees. Mr.Shopenn’s life savings indicated this was not acceptable.
Learning of the growing medical tourist seeking their medical procedures in various other areas of the world. Thailand, India, are two he turned down and settled for hospital in Brussels which offered the entire procedure, hospital room for 5 days and 1 week of therapy, with all expense’s paid including his round trip air fare for a total price of $13,600!
After his replacement and return to the USA he commented; “We have the most expensive health care in the world, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best,” Mr. Shopenn said.“I’m kind of the poster child for that.”
Mr.Shopenn’s discount, for the hip implant alone, is not appreciated by the privately insured in the USA who get billed up to 3 times that $13,000 discount of Mr.Shopenn. Dr. Blair Rhode, an orthopedist entrepreneur who manufactures hip implants explains the actual cost to one hip plant implant in the USA total cost is $350. Cost increase is stimulated by a cartel of 5 manufactures here in the USA . Averaging 5% increase per year in cost to implants, by tweaking older models and patent them as new models. Raising the prices on hip implants, knee implants, sterilized pieces of tooled metal, plastic, or ceramics, etc.
Dr. Peter M Cram of the University of Iowa, discovered in his studies for the high cost for the USA’s Health Care. The Cartel of 5 ferociously guard their domains from foreign manufactures with trade policies, patents and an expensive Food and Drug Administration approval process that deters start-ups from entering the market.
There are as many as 13 layers of vendors that must be paid before the hospital even gets its hands on the implant device. Running at $4,500 to $7500 for a hip implant cost to the hospitals who then raise that cost up substantially prior to installation.{MD Buying and Orthopedic Network News}
Joe Catugno billed $100,000, at the Hospital for Joint Diseases of N.Y., of which his insurer Cigna paid approximately $70,000 remainder for Joe to pay. Mills-Pensinsula Health Services in San Mateo Calif. Billed Susan Foley $112,317 of which $26,000 remained for Susan to pay. Sonja Nelson’s hip replacement at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola Fl. Accounted for $30,581 of her billed total charge of $50,935. Insurers to negotiate limited responsibility for the differences.
Competition and large increase in demand for these services has Not lowered the prices. On the contrary they have risen.
Now we can only speculate how much Obamacare will suppress these cartel driven prices? How much will the catering charges cost, for the Feds catering to the states that require, due to the austerity ideologues of the republicans obstructions to Obamacare.

Good luck with that since 63% of America is still white plus another 18 - 25 % Hispanic VS 12.6 % African American plus .9% native Americans I think y our chances of taking this land is pretty small but if you want to try go for it.

Greyhound the new psychotherapy treatment for the mentally handicap.
Let us follow a patient that has some retention to reality. His name is David Thesien.
It all began a year and half ago in Las Vegas where he threatened to kill himself with a butchers knife. Spent a night in the Las Vegas psychiatric center and then was bussed off to San Francisco. One day supply of medication and enough food for a few days and the clothes on his back, is dumped in San Francisco with no knowledge of the city or any social relations nor medical assistance.
City attorney Dennis Herrera, stumbled across Mr. Thesien and now represents Mr. Thesien in a class action suite, representing 24 mentally ill and homeless individuals. All from Nevada!
Att. Herrera, with a little bit of investigating discovered an estimate of over 1,500 suffered similar fates originating from the Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Center in Vegas.
Attorney Mr. Herrera has served notice of suit to Nevada’s Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto. Thus far no comments from the Att. General but an e-mail from a Mary Woods, of the Nev. Dept. Of Health and Human Services, states that all protocols were carried out were correct in line with their “Back To Home Communities” policies.
Mary is referring to programs that several Hospitals through, out our USA, have at their disposal. Originally it was to reunite Psychiatric patients into more favorable environment, with family relations, friends and medical assistance. Abuse occurs as patients are bussed out with no oversight responsibility.
Ronald S. Homberg of the National Alliance On Mental Illness in Washington admits they have dropped the ball. Never ever have done a study on this subject that has been increasing from many years past. He had heard of “Euphemistically therapy as a Greyhound solution. Never researched it??
Presently Mr. Thesien has a small free room and $100.00 from the city every month for food and medication! He roams the libraries and streets seeking employment as a cook.
Fortunate for our society when Mr. Thesien went off the deep end, he was suicidal to himself only. What if were the other way around and I’ll take as many with me as I can. LOL Where is that GUN!

Predatory lending and exploitation of the impoverished has surpassed historical records.
From the Pay Day loan sharking at 300% and up. To cabbies purchasing food stamps from the winos and selling back to them at .50 cents per cigarette or liens debts driven up from a $500. original debt to a $5,000 to take possession of real estate adventures. Or used cars sold with flaws to be reposed and resold at huge interest rates.
Factors of inequality has not yet been added into this quagmire of predators roaming our streets legally through the deregulated policies of our recent republican administration.
Presently the cost to our society has been demonstrated in the rise of the poverty within our nation. Something the Media shies away or ignores. May 2013 University of Michigan’s National Poverty Center wrapped their latest analysis on that subject.
Using the World Bank’s definition for poverty they found 1.65 million households, with 3.55 million children in residence, in the USA qualified for extreme poverty.
1996 poverty was at 636,000. This means they survive on less than $2 a day per person or $8 for a family of four.
N.Y.C. has reached a record high in June 2013 with 50,926 homeless seeking shelter according to the Coalition for the Homeless.
Middle class has lost approximately $5,000 in earnings stressing their obligations to keep their heads above water. Price of Inequality remains at increasing ratios that rewards the 1%.

A letter to my republican representatives and senators.
Due to mismanagement of my financials last year had to reconstruct a new budget for the family. So until I come up with a unified budget plan, I will be shutting down my checkbook and delaying payments to all of my needs as well as my Taxes. I’m sure you can understand. Thank You very much for setting the example.

Supreme Court justice scales have lost their balance. Selling our Democracy to the highest bidder..
