Nation Of Sickos: Should We Be Concerned About The Moral Collapse Of America?

The Moral Collapse Of America - Photo by NazzzHow bad does it have to get before we admit that America is an absolute cesspool of filth and wickedness? The horrific Navy Yard shooting that took place on Monday is yet another reminder that the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is rapidly disappearing. At this point, nobody is fully safe anywhere in the United States at any time. Sadly, the Navy Yard shooting was far from an isolated incident. Every day, there are news reports that detail some of the most heinous crimes that you could possibly imagine. In this article, you are going to read about incredibly disturbing things that sickos have done to animals, young children and elderly Americans. The goal is not to entertain you. Rather, I hope to spark a discussion about the moral collapse of America. The United States has become a nation of perverts, sickos and psychopaths, and we need to ask ourselves some very honest questions about why this is happening. No matter what other solutions we may come up with politically and economically, this country is not going to have any kind of a future unless we are able to address the moral decay that is rotting the foundations of this nation at an absolutely astounding pace.(Read More.....) http://endoftheamericandream.com/

Under Barack Obama, the U.S. economy has performed worse than it did under any other president since the end of the Great Depression. After every other recession since World War II, the U.S. economy always regained what was lost and got even stronger before the next recession began. During this “economic recovery”, we have not even come close to getting back to where we were in 2008. In fact, the number of Americans living in poverty and the number of Americans that are dependent on the government both continue to explode even as Barack Obama runs up trillions of dollars of new debt. Anyone that believes that Barack Obama is going to “fix the economy” if he is given another four years in the White House has taken way too many sips of the Obama kool-aid. The truth is that Barack Obama is not going to save you. Barack Obama has royally messed up our economy (along with a lot of other things) and that is not something we should be thanking him for.(Read More.....) http://endoftheamericandream.com/...

Just think about this. How many liberals profess a belief in God and are tolerant of anyone who does? Yet, when it comes to big government social issues, they're the first ones to bring God into the equation.
Like I said, in their minds, an equal substitute.

15 Reasons Why The Obamacare Decision Is A Mind Blowing Disaster For America
By Michael Snyder, on June 28th, 2012




You can almost always count on the Supreme Court to do the wrong thing. In fact, just about every major decision by the U.S. Supreme Court over the last 40 years has been bad for America. Many were hoping that the Supreme Court would strike down Obamacare, but the truth is that we all should have known better than to expect them to get something right. So now America is headed for a complete and total disaster as Obamacare is fully implemented over the next several years. Obamacare is going to absolutely shred the infrastructure of our medical system, it is going to send health insurance premiums soaring, it is going to dramatically expand the size and the scope of government, it is going to fundamentally alter the relationships between doctors and their patients and it is one of the largest tax increases in U.S. history. Not only that, it is also going to add about a trillion dollars to our national debt over the next decade. So no, the Obamacare decision is not good news. Obamacare was one of the worst pieces of legislation in American history, and now we are stuck with it.

It was a 5-4 decision to uphold Obamacare, and the swing vote was Chief Justice John Roberts who was appointed by George W. Bush.

After the vote today, it is hard to have any faith in the U.S. Supreme Court. Many constitutional conservatives kept voting for Republicans in the hope that the direction of the Supreme Court would change, but it hasn’t.

Prior to the Obama administration, Republicans controlled the White House for 20 out of 28 years. If Republicans were going to fundamentally change the nature of the Supreme Court, that was their opportunity.

But it didn’t happen.

Instead, what we have is a Supreme Court that is dominated by judges that have very little respect for the U.S. Constitution. When I was in law school I got to study the Supreme Court pretty closely and I quickly realized that most of the time they simply do whatever they want to do and they make up whatever reasons they can to justify their decisions.

That sounds really bad, but that is the truth.

The more things heat up with radical Islam, the more silent moderate Muslim clerics and prominent peaceful Muslims become.

I know they fear for their safety, but so do I. If nothing else Bob Beckel says is true, his strong belief that Muslim students should no longer be allowed to come to this country and Muslim mosques cannot be built until we hear a collective outcry from the rest of the Muslim world has a clear ring of truth.

Which actually surprises me considering the source.

And thanks to the Supreme Court, we are stuck with Obamacare – at least for now.

The following are 15 reasons why the Obamacare decision is a mind blowing disaster for America….

#1 According to the U.S. Supreme Court, the federal government has the power to force you to buy private goods and services. Now that this door has been opened, what else will we be forced to buy in the future?

#2 Obamacare is another step away from individual liberty and another step toward a “nanny state” where the government dominates our lives from the cradle to the grave.

#3 The IRS is now going to be given the task of hunting down and penalizing millions of Americans that do not have any health insurance. In fact, the Obama administration has given the IRS 500 million extra dollars “outside the normal appropriations process” to help them enforce the provisions of Obamacare that they are in charge of overseeing.

#4 Obamacare imposes more than 20 new taxes on the American people. You can find a comprehensive list of Obamacare taxes right here. If you love paying higher taxes, then you are going to absolutely love Obamacare once it is fully implemented.

#5 In an attempt to “control costs” and “promote efficiency”, Obamacare limits the treatment options that doctors and patients can consider. This is likely to result in a decrease in life expectancy in the United States.

#6 Obamacare is going to impose nightmarish paperwork burdens on doctors, hospitals and the rest of the healthcare system. This is going to significantly increase our healthcare costs as a nation.

#7 Obamacare is going to send health insurance premiums soaring. This is especially true for younger Americans.

#8 Many small businesses are going to be absolutely crushed by the provisions in Obamacare that require them to provide expensive health insurance coverage for their employees. This is going to make them even less competitive with companies in other countries where businesses are not required to provide healthcare for their workers. This is also going to make it even less attractive for businesses to hire new employees.

#9 Obamacare is going to make the emerging doctor shortage in America a lot worse. Surveys have found that we could potentially see hundreds of thousands of doctors leave the medical profession because of Obamacare.

#10 Obamacare has already forced the cancellation of dozens of doctor-owned hospitals.

#11 Obamacare is going to result in a much bigger federal government. In order to fully implement all of the provisions of Obamacare, hordes of new government bureaucrats will be required.

#12 Thanks to Obamacare, you are going to have to wait much longer to see a doctor. Just look at what happened once Romneycare was implemented in Massachusetts….

In fact, we have already seen the start of this process in Massachusetts, where Mitt Romney’s health care reforms were nearly identical to President Obama’s. Romney’s reforms increased the demand for health care but did nothing to expand the supply of physicians. In fact, by cracking down on insurance premiums, Massachusetts pushed insurers to reduce their payments to providers, making it less worthwhile for doctors to expand their practices. As a result, the average wait to get an appointment with a doctor grew from 33 days to over 55 days.

#13 Obamacare contains all kinds of insidious little provisions that most people don’t even know about. The following is one example from the Alliance Defense Fund….

“Did you know that with ObamaCare you will have to pay for life-saving drugs, but life-ending drugs are free. One hundred percent free. If this plan were really about health care wouldn’t it be the other way around?”

#14 As if the U.S. government was not facing enough of a crisis with entitlement spending, it is being projected that Obamacare will add 16 million more Americans to the Medicaid rolls. You and I will be paying for all of this.

#15 The Congressional Budget Office estimates that Obamacare will add more than a trillion dollars to government spending over the next decade. Considering the fact that the U.S. government is already drowning in debt, how in the world can we afford this?

So what do you think about the Obamacare decision?http://endoftheameric andream.com/archives/15-reason s-why-the-obamacare-decision-i s-a-mind-blowing-disaster-for- america

Not your day, is it.
Explanation
"Under Section 9001 of the ACA, health insurance issuers and sponsors of self-funded group health plans will be assessed an excise tax on any benefits provided to employees that exceed a pre-determined threshold. This is the same tax that the general media has labeled as the “Cadillac” tax. The excise tax is imposed beginning in 2018."
Now class, who gets taxed?
All together now : Health insurance issuers & sponsors of self funded groups.
i.e. insurance companies
this idiot thinks a plan sponsor is the insurance company. Wow.

QUOTE who="USAsince1680" <quoted text>
If my block starts to burn I know for a fact that I can't rely on the firefighters to put it out. They will sit back and let it burn while watering down all the houses in the "safe zone". I have never understood why anyone would praise firefighters for putting up a good fight for letting a city burn to the ground. Personally, if my house burns down I will put up a sign that reads, "Thanks firefighters...for nothing".
We have one home in a mountain community that the firefighters have already said they will not protect should the forest around us catch on fire. They will let the entire community burn to the ground because there is "no place to take a stand". Now, does that sound heroic to you?
