Veto coming on Obamacare Repeal

 

For First Time Ever, Senate Votes to Repeal Obamacare — This Is What You Can Expect to Happen Next

The Senate voted Thursday evening for the first time ever to repeal President Barack Obama’s signature health care law, passing the measure 52-47.

The bill will now head to the House, where it should win easy approval from the Republican majority.

Congress will then send the measure, which also strips federal funding for Planned Parenthood, to Obama who will veto it.

This marks the first time the Republican controlled Congress has ever sent a bill to repeal Obamacare to the president’s desk.

In a statement, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who has been relentless in his efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, said the vote represented a “significant step towards repealing every word of Obamacare.”

“Since before my first day in office, I pledged to do everything within my power to repeal Obamacare,” he said. “And over the last three years, I’ve worked day and night to do exactly that, sometimes to the dismay of those in Washington.”

“This bill repeals as much of that failed law as we can under arcane Senate rules and the narrow guidelines of the budget,” Cruz added. “I am also encouraged that this bill prohibits taxpayer funds from going to abortion-providers. This bill is a substantial improvement over the original House bill, and I’m grateful to Senate conservatives and Senate leadership for joining me in making it so.”

Planned Parenthood, however, saw things differently, releasing a statement calling the measure a “cynical political attack.”

“In spite of these political attacks, we’re focused on providing high-quality, compassionate health care to people all across this country. We won’t be deterred by violence, smear campaigns, or cynical political attacks like this.”

US Government “Shut Down” 2013

Good morning all.

I’m sitting at a military installation.  For the record it is being passed on the news that literally several thousand at the various bases in my region have been furloughed.

Now – looking around me, I can tell you this is kind of bullshit.  A whole lot of government people are at work.

This morning NOAA shut down their web sites.  Web sites don’t require a hell of a lot of work – except updating the data on them, so why shut it down?  A large portion of the people working for ALL government agencies are Contractors.

In our case, I’m a contractor, money has been allocated already (for awhile, we could be furloughed soon too though).

In the case of NOAA most of the weather people doing updates are contractors.

So shutting down sites is a childish thing the President has ordered.

Yesterday monuments in DC were closed.  Today a lot of parks are closed… even if they have roads passing through, the ROADS ARE CLOSED.  Childish.

The White House hasn’t been reopened since sequestration… childish.

Do I care if the government “shuts down”?  Not really.

All those “economic problems” because “caused” by this are more bullshit problems.  They aren’t getting their check on payday – but you can bet your ass they will get their back pay.  No one is going to stop spending money because the government has shut down.

Funny…. though, Obamacare hasn’t shut down.  It launches the day the government shuts down and it’s being funded.

Childish.

There is a (slight) possibility that if this continues for weeks there will be some “crashes”.  EBT cards won’t get funded soon enough and a lot of government agencies will simply stop working.  This means that there will be some ripples, but how bad those ripples becomes is anyone’s guess right now.

I honestly see the GOP caving in shortly because they are getting the majority of the blame, even though it is Harry Reid and the Senate really stopping this.

Yesterday they funded the military, but refused to fund the VA.  Congress will get paid no matter what, because it’s written into the constitution they will get paid.

Basically this is a “Fund my stuff, but not your stuff” kind of fight.  The country as a whole doesn’t want Obamacare.  A few people want it.  Liberals assholes who want others to pay for their problems.

I have a job, I have health care – I’m expecting it to increase drastically to the point I will tell them “I don’t want it”.  And I’ll take the “fine” and I won’t pay that either.  Pretty soon, I will have ZERO INCOME and how cool will that be?  I can’t really be fined if I have no money right?  Whatever.

To hell with the government, Obama, the Democrats, the GOP – all of them.  They are a bunch of lying assholes who want to control every aspect of our lives in America.  They want most of our money we make (so they can waste it), they want to control where we can go, when we can go, how much we can save or not save, they want to control OUR HEALTH, they want to control what we eat, read, drink, own, where we live, how we live and whether we live or die.

Not only is it TIME to shut this government down, it’s time to remove these assholes from office.

GET OUT OF OUR LIVES PRESIDENT OBAMA AND CONGRESS!

 

Nuclear Terror Attack!

Got your attention, didn’t I?  Well, good, pay attention here.  We haven’t been training people for such an attack in forever… not since I was a little kid.  Remember “Duck and Cover”?

FEMA Food Requests

This morning I read this link:

http://youviewed.com/2013/08/06/fema-demands-immediate-food-deliveries/?bcsi-ac-4d57fec82d0c41f9=20EC66A700000002IGPm3y7b5BUn0HMVmoCrI19RK2siDAAAAgAAAFWSLQCEAwAABwAAAD25AgA=

And I reblogged it a short time ago.  It concerned me a bit… perhaps FEMA is attempting to drive up survival food prices?  Who knows?  But anyway, I wrote to them and received the following letter from one of the folks at the supply place, and the letter is listed below with their response.  I usually take conspiracy theories with a grain of salt – no, that’s a lie, I vehemently attempt to tear them apart because they do NOTHING for our community and “side”.  When a “Concentration Camp” sort of Conspiracy Theory is perpetuate without ANY real evidence or made up evidence, or just faked evidence, it does nothing to help us.  All of these sorts of things should be cleared up quickly and left where they belong… in the dirt.

However, this appears to be some kind of a real “threat” to the survivalist food supplies.

Think about it.  First the Ammo, now survival food sources being targeted?  For one, I don’t believe you should use survival foods as an only source, I have other methods of collecting food, and I’ll detail and outline those some other time.  But for now, is this a threat?

What do YOU think?

Thank you for asking and sharing your concerns regarding the FEMA contact email we received.

We received an inquiry from FEMA seeking information on our food supply and how much we could supply. This alarmed us, and thus far we have not responded. Considering the current drive to reduce our ammo supplies, we felt disclosing the information was the right thing to do so folks would be aware of the potential threat .

We do understand FEMA and other organizations do seek to make purchases of foods for their crisis stockpiles, however we feel their may be a chance that this may end up like the ammo situation or something similar. We want to avoid that if at all possible.

So yes, the email contact is true. Please see the statement on our website:

Here is the full text of their current statement on the site:

08/01/13

Fellow Patriots:

I’m just a little bit concerned. Let me tell you why. Understand that I’m sticking my neck out telling you this, but I think we deserve to know what our government is up to.

Very recently I was contacted by the Department of Homeland Security (click link below to see the letter). It was not the fact that they contacted me that has me worried, it was what they wanted that bothers me.

They want our emergency survival food. And they want it NOW!

Typically the government will post a Request For Information and receive bids from suppliers. As of this morning there are still no active public requests from DHS/FEMA. They are trying to keep this quiet by contacting makers of Emergency Survival Food directly and discreetly. Well…not on my watch!

You probably remember the big stir back in 2011 when FEMA put out that they wanted to purchase MILLIONS of meals of emergency food. The alternative media covered this topic so fiercely that they quickly cancelled the request saying that it was “premature” in nature.

But here we are, August 2013 and FEMA once again is trying to buy up large stockpiles of food. And they don’t want anyone to know it, and they want to take immediately delivery.

Friends…I’ve studied history. That is what got me into preparedness in the first place. History has shown us time after time that those who depend on the government to come to their aid during a disaster are the ones waiting the longest for help. Sometimes help never comes…or comes too late.

I do not believe these critical emergency food supplies should be in the hands of the government, stored in some secret warehouse only to be brought out and distributed to their own agencies first,  with the rest of us getting table scraps long after we need it.

These life-saving meals belong in the hands of people like you and me. This is why I declined the opportunity to sell to the Department of Homeland Security.

But let’s not forget the most important part of this: Why the sudden sense of urgency? What do they know that we do not?

I’m not one to cry that the sky is always falling, but when DHS/FEMA make a move to quietly buy up emergency food supplies and ask how much we can ship within 24 hours…I think this is far enough outside the realm of what is “normal” to beg some questions.

Fortunately I’ve been in this business long enough to predict what happens next. One or more of the other “survival companies” out there will inevitably see a chance to make a quick buck from Uncle Sam (which is really paid for by us, the taxpayer). This could create a run on many of the core raw ingredients used by emergency food makers that will cause a ripple effect throughout the industry as supply chains become bottle-necked handling the FEMA/DHS request.

Fortunately I was able to put in a large order in anticipation of the impact of the FEMA request (and whatever they may be urgently preparing for) and I have production machines working around the clock to ensure an increase of the available supply in our warehouse as soon as possible.

Update: Due to the number of people responding to and acting on the information disclosed above we have updated our estimated ship time for Emergency Food products to two weeks.

Like myself, I’m sure you are also uneasy about this request. What it means we have yet to see. But as they say, “knowledge is power”.

Stay safe out there, be ever vigilant, and take care of each other.

Officials may never know what caused the massive, countrywide outbreak of cyclospora that has sickened nearly 400 people across 16 states thanks to local state law.

397 cases in 16 states, but no one has yet identified the source.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Thursday there are now cases of cyclospora in Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York City, New York State, Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin.

Cyclosporiasis is caused by a single-celled parasite and can trigger diarrhea and stomach cramps. Fortunately, the cyclospora parasite cannot be spread from person to person; it has to be ingested via contaminated water or foods such as fruit and vegetables.
