Eight Obamacare Myths Refuted

John R. Graham Four years after its passage, Obamacare has now been largely implemented, and millions have had their coverage disrupted. For years, the administration has propagated a number of myths about Obamacare. Some have already crumbled, and others will fall as Obamacare continues to change the American health system. Myth No. 1: If you like your health plan, you can keep it. Despite President Obama’s promise that “If you like your plan, you can keep it,” about 6 million people have already been notified by insurance companies that their policies are being canceled. That number will grow. Currently, about 19 million people have health coverage that they purchased in the individual market. Most of those plans do not […]

to fridge or to not fridge

There are some foods that absolutely need refrigeration, and some that are better off stored outside of your fridge. Do not refrigerate (unless cut): Potatoes: Refrigeration makes the starches in potatoes turn to sugar – which is not a good thing, as it changes the flavor and makes the skin darken. Onions: Separate them from the potatoes (they don’t play well together – potatoes can make onions rot) and store them where there is plenty of air circulation (no sealed bags or containers) Garlic: Like onions, they prefer air circulation. Tomatoes: Store them on the counter – they will turn mealy and dull in the refrigerator. Avocado: Store on the counter until they are ripe. Melon: Leave them on your […]

dam this morning

As you know, I’ve been paying attention the the river outside my front window. This morning a log caught on the bridge support downstream. Knowing this could rather rapidly escalate into a major dam, backup and flood for us lowlanders, I called the highway department. They were out within hours. I expected response, but was quite pleasantly surprised by its rapidity. Chatting with the crew chief, we discover the essence to them: A dam on the support exerts tremendous pressure and could take the bridge down. Replacement cost could be $1.500,000… a bit of a budget breaker for the county. Improving their motivation, a half-mile west was a similar problem on the bridge over the West Fork. One tractor trip […]

bully good show

I tripped over a good bully story. It is much better to hear Ronda tell it. She is a good story teller and this is a great story. I strongly recommend this IJR Flash video clip over the abbreviated text of the story at the bottom of the page. Keep in mind, that she competes, fights in the womens bantamweight class. That is to say, she is small, particularly when compared to the big thugs who decided to exhibit their manliness by pushing her around. Now with the bullying event as she told it in your head, watch her in the ring and imagine how quick the world turned upside down for the thugs in her story. She started in […]

reality theorist

Why NOT Believing In Conspiracies Is A Sure Sign Of Mental Retardation Monday, 19 May 2014 06:37 Mike Adams This article was written by Mike Adams and originally published at Natural News The phrase “conspiracy theorist” is a derogatory smear phrase thrown at someone in an attempt to paint them as a lunatic. It’s a tactic frequently used by modern-day thought police in a desperate attempt to demand “Don’t go there!” But let’s step back for a rational moment and ask the commonsense question: Are there really NO conspiracies in our world? The Attorney General of South Carolina would surely disagree with such a blanket statement. After all, he sued five pharmaceutical companies for conducting a price-fixing conspiracy to defraud […]

where this path leads

Who Is The New Secret Buyer Of U.S. Debt? Wednesday, 21 May 2014 02:41 Brandon Smith On the surface, the economic atmosphere of the U.S. has appeared rather calm and uneventful. Stocks are up, employment isn’t great but jobs aren’t collapsing into the void (at least not openly), and the U.S. dollar seems to be going strong. Peel away the thin veneer, however, and a different financial horror show is revealed. U.S. stocks have enjoyed unprecedented crash protection due to a steady infusion of fiat money from the Federal Reserve known as quantitative easing. With the advent of the “taper”, QE is now swiftly coming to a close (as is evident in the overall reduction in treasury market purchases), and […]

how deep our troubles

QUOTE OF THE CENTURY, MAYBE EVEN THE MILLENNIUM Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic . Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do. “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is […]

dirty politics in Idaho

Lisa Breuer shared a link. 8 hours ago WOW – Share this out in ALL OF IDAHO, copy and email it too …. and be on the lookout, they’ll be coming to a District near you soon no doubt! HELP US with a smear campaign (mailers) that started today on two VERY good candidates. BEWARE! There is a false group calling themselves “Sportsmen for Idaho” that is doing PAC activity, yet has not filed a 7 Day Pre-Primary report; shows (N/A). They likely filed after May 4th. However they have been filing “48 Hour Independent Expenditure” reports supporting “Stephen Snedden” in District 1 (opposing Heather Scott) and supporting “Merrill Beyeler” in District 8 (opposing Lenore Barrett). This group is […]
