On the "The Affordable Care Act"...
I see all the positive benefits to this legislation...
8:37 am pdt
These positives will help improve the overall quality
of the health care/-health insurance process in the
I am also aware that how it was
final contents/structure was much influenced by
have been so much more, as well as
structured in a way that would not have necessitated
the degree of legal scrutiny..supreme
deliberations..creative conclusions ect....
I have never been satisfied by the white-house's
efforts over health care reform..
I am very concerned that instead of creating a "bill"
reap/facilitate the full needed benefits of
cost reductions.. instead I see a bill that corporate
will find a way to avoid the needed
reductions/reforms.. cost may go up..at least initially..
(It does have
some cost control provisions present,
but, and this is a big but, in most cases those aspects
of the legislation
can be avoided by most providers.)
Now their saying number of insured may actually
drop by around 3 million
covered over the next
Finally, and my biggest concerns..by a just a bit..
I am concerned
about the long term impact to our
society..due to the "my perception" , legal findings,
of the bills sponsors, as well as the
I am concerned that serious sensibilities about the
role/power of government, The role/power of corporate
influence..and serious long term philosophical societal
about appropriate boundaries for same
has been seriously weakened..negatively impacted.

Continued stress in the Persian gulf...not looking good..
I am very saddened about the diplomatic process
3:05 pm pdt
to date over the conflict/stress concerning Iran's nuclear
I do have some serious concerns about possible legal,
or international repercussions if the U.S. or Israel act
pre-emptively militarily to set back or eliminate aspects
of concern within the Iranian nuclear programs..
However that does not mean it will not happen...
If Iran is saying the words that will contribute to the
de-escalation of this situation..I am not hearing those
words from my current location..
I am not completely
satisfied with the U.S. media
coverage of these related issues..
I am deeply saddened by the
failure of the west to
put forth a better effort over the past 40 plus yrs
to create or build a process that would
the current situation and related created problems..
Come on everyone.. lets hear the needed
peace/co-operation..there is still time..
Mr. President say the words...

U.S. Corn harvest 2012..disaster?? 30% healthy yields??
Anyone keeping track on the Corn harvest for
8:17 pm pdt
2012, and what the potential impacts from same
could be?? ( A disaster--No,
but very serious in the U.S.
will have serious effect on food markets..both
domestic and foreign.)
disaster..1988.. basically if conditions improve
for next year..system has the ability to compensate
to a fair degree..if
drought conditions persist next year
as well bets are off..Also economic impact to our weak
economic recovery, are
what I see as having the
potential to raise this harvest cycle impact to "disaster"
Need to take a look at 2012 wheat production as
well?? (off a bit--slightly higher consumer costs
Additional costs with feed hay?? drying?? Now in
addition to the mentioned earlier drying costs??
are coming in that large percentages of
these hay producing areas have gone into drought
conditions as well..
Old info, but new to me..Operation Merlin..Just how did the Iranians get plans to build the "A-Bomb"
Well it appears that not only did the U.S Government
10:23 am pdt
provide the initial resources that the Iranian Gov. has
using in it's nuclear development program/s..
I.E. Research reactor, and help with the creation of a
Again this is old news..but in light of the current
stress in the persian gulf..I believe
it's important to
Clinton administation/CIA..?? Operation Merlin...
later it appears to have
been also approved by
Flawed plans given to Iranians..flaws spotted...
plans corrected through
a "simple" process of reverse
engineering, and comparitive partial plan designs
you have is instead of a process that could
take decades..The Iranians get plans to build an
A-bomb in just a
couple of years give or take..??
U.S. Strikes again...
Colin Stuart McCoy
In reality this
story is perhaps less about how much
the Iranians were helped in their efforts to design or
build a working A-Bomb..This
failed operation, my
opinion, probably only helped in that it may have
led the Iranians to seek out other plans/resources
in order to spot and confirm or resolve the easily
spotted flaws in these nuclear "trigger"?? designs.
In my opinion it is just another example or how
dangerously incompetent, ignorant, uneducated,
thought out our national leaders and their
efforts can be.. It's about lost opportunities to
find common ground..it's
about creating fatally
flawed political realities that are ticking time bombs
that having been created must then

How about we pass a new law.. as long as there are poor..there can be no rich??
Think about it..Of course there would be work requirements
12:47 pm pdt
for the healthy, ect..
If being rich means we
allow, or enable a single person to
be poor/neglected..then there should be no rich...
Is such a philosophy
possible..yes..think about it while
the possibility still exists at least mathematically.
it as a mental exercise..what would need to
happen?? How would it look??
Boyscouts USA decide to keep hateful and discriminatory policies in place
Boy Scouts have become, in my opinion, a back ward,
12:36 pm pdt
godless, bunch of USA government supported/enabled
(Godless in so much as all people or groups that have
attached past historically failed discriminatory beliefs-
policies off as supported by God--have been found to
be, at the end of the day, walking alone with God no
in sight...) (Brown shirts.., in so much as their
shirts are brown..., but clearly it is intended for the
to make a historical connection, and look for
other dangerous failed historical moments connected
with the manipulation
and subversion of youth groups.)
might think this is a little strong..I suggest you
educate yourself..and look at it from the point of those
targeted by hate.)-- Also just so you understand..
my family supported Scouting in the sixties and
on my mothers side of the family we are
directly related to the founder of the Scouts..
I.E. Powell.. It's so sad..
I still have, and treasure, my
grandfathers scout manual from the early 1920's.
(Richard Baden Powell)
Back east some scout groups are operating in open
defiance of the Scout Board/National Leadership..
If such courage
would manifest itself here in Oregon
I would sign my son up for that troop/pack in a heart
local scout leaders continue to wander
the wilderness with compasses that they either refuse
to look at, or that
are apparently broken..
Their leadership is falling further and further behind
the values perceptions
and education of mainstream
USA. Kind of like a bunch of folk wanting to maintain
slavery in the 1850's,
or wife beating, women as
second citizens in the 1960's..my opinion..
The feeble reasons are just that..it's
those that one
might have expected to see trying to burn witches at
the stake that are typically the very people
unacceptable sexual dialog into the youth groups..
(You know these folks--they hide their fear, hate,
ignorance behind magical thinking, without any sign
of factual backup..or proof..fear of that which is
A simple policy could be created that would eliminate
such a concern of such dialog..while
discriminatory policies based upon religious belief or
thinking that has perpetuated the Boy Scouts
of America's anti American discriminatory policies are the
of thinkers that have brought us the current
drought, wild fires and human caused global weather
as well as the current global economic
Rising food costs ect..
I find it always disturbing
when those entrusted to bring
about needed changes are often those un-effected by the
harms..As such, refom efforts
are typically..some what less
than what is needed by those being negatively impacted.

Arizona-man sent to jail for 60 days for holding bible study in home
12:20 pm pdt
This is very disturbing...I have watched the video of the raid
on this mans home..I have read some of the news reports.
What was the problem being caused..traffic issues??
Very troubling.. want to hear what if anything Arizona
able to say in their defence..
O.K. I had a chance to take a little closer look....I
Government of Arizona holds the higher ground here..
It appears? that what has been created on the
question is a Church...It appears?? that the property owners
themselves refer to their processes as
a church.. It appears???
that tithing takes place on property.. It appears???? that
the building permit was issued
for the construction of a "game
room"?? I find myself wondering if this permit was sought, for
room, knowing all the time, that the actual use could-
would be for something else? If deception is involved..Christian
values??? Trying to have your cake and eat it too..???
I think that if you can get past the initial emotional
that Arizona Gov. official hold the higher ground in this instance.
both morally, and factually...
Case raises interesting points though... but I believe a review
of the facts support a finding that what was
on the property
fits far more of what people would consider traditional church
activity, to a greater degree than
what people would consider
an in home bible study process. It would appear that materials
produced by the property
owners????? materially support this
conclusion as well??
The government of Arizona has a legal obligation
viable codes and regs designed and implemented to protect
the well being/safety and zoning operation
within any particular
area..To fail to do so..and then have injury result or other
business or non residential
activities move in, would be
chaotic.. people would quickly hold said government official
liable in such a case..
Health care reform ? Failure to repeal "Indefinite Detention"..Corporate control of USA political processes
10:39 am pdt
I am uncomfortable with the current health care reform
efforts recently found to be constitutional.
process lacks the focused dialog and honest appraisal
of processes and policies that have been found to work in
countries. This process lacks a viable effort at real
communication geared to educate the public on why our
care system has become far too expensive, and
steps needed to fix same.
The supreme courts ruling on how they
found this to be
constitutional I find to be reptilian, and an insult to the
people of the United States.
A tax? Come on..
what else can we now expect to have to buy under what
may now be considered a tax.
Both Dems and Republicans have clearly reached a
homogeneous degree of corporate
eliminates the ability for the USA voting populace to
effect meaningful political policy
If we were honest we would eliminate both the above
political parties, and merge them into the
of Trans Americana..
