FCC’s Net Neutrality Vote

In Government Reforms on February 26, 2015 at 4:28 pm

FCC’s Net Neutrality Vote means I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.  Or Bribes are us, yes with this vote and control now the feds will have the ability to take care of their friends.  Alot like Obamacare where some healthcare providers get better treatment than the others.  Yes full Federal control is on the way.

The proposed rules are pretty lengthy, but from an FCC fact sheet, here are the three things that the rules would ban that matter most to consumers:

No Blocking: broadband providers may not block access to legal content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices.

No Throttling: broadband providers may not impair or degrade lawful Internet traffic on the basis of content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices.

No Paid Prioritization: broadband providers may not favor some lawful Internet traffic over other lawful traffic in exchange for consideration — in other words, no ‘fast lanes.’ This rule also bans ISPs from prioritizing content and services of their affiliates.”
FCC’s Net Neutrality Vote gives us all that sense that all hope is lost.  Soon the Feds will have the ability to decide what you should be reading on an open internet.  Just like Alibaba in China only “Approved” sites will be loaded.  The republicans are not going to work to stop it and the democrats already love it so you know there is nothing here that will help the average person.

Let the Bribes begin!

 

Whats the Problem with Nurse Practitioners?

In Government Reforms, Health care, Obama on February 4, 2015 at 11:54 pm

Whats the Problem with Nurse Practitioners?  Today’s counterpoint in Investors Business Daily is a telling problem.  IBD ran a rebuttal by Joy Kiviat a new graduate in a fine profession who would like us to believe that because of Nurse Practitioners medicine is now better than before.   You remember before, when you saw a Doctor not a PA.  The doctor had 8 years plus of college and had served a residency where he was exposed to all sorts of problems.  Now the initials on the jacket usually read PA.  An assistant…

Ms Kiviat writes:

“As a newly graduated family nurse practitioner, I am fully aware of what I have to offer my patients and also of the limitations to my knowledge.

I take thorough medical and personal histories on my patients, treat and manage those conditions that are appropriate given my training and experience, and refer patients to specialists when I recognize that their needs are outside my scope.”

 

Wow, Congratulations Ms Kiviat on your hard work and great degree in an honorable profession.  However, years ago it took a Registered Nurse 4 year of schooling to assist a doctor in an office or hospital.  Now is less than 3 years you no longer need a physician in the room?

I know you feel that PA’s have worked hard to fill the void but lets be honest, “You don’t know, what you don’t Know”.  And No you are not yet “FULLY AWARE” of your inabilities because they have yet to become known. No one is perfect and yours will as is many in the medical profession cost lives and do damage.  Doctors also face this, but youth allows for over abundance of confidence.   Yes, there are a variety of medical procedures that you can fill, take care of and diagnose.  But where did it become the law of the land, When was it decided the PA was going to be my primary care giver?  OBAMA CARE!  That’s when it was decided that your 3 years of schooling would become my care.  Well, hospitals now have PA’s as the front guard to Nero Surgeons, Cardiologist and other difficult specialists all front loaded with PA’s on the front lines. Adding cost in my eye’s as these sweet, newbies attempt to see if they can guess what the doctor might say is wrong.  As we have added 30 million new uninsured who have never paid in, I’m not sure why I need another layer of well trained (3 years) PA’s in front of my Doctor and Specialist.

The solution for both of us is,  OBAMA CARE to offer free medical care.  Lets put PA’s in every Walmart free of charge to the patients.  Now the hard working PA’s can help the very people OBAMA CARE promised to take care of, the Uninsured. When you find something that a PA can’t cure, they could be sent onto the hospital or physician.    If each Walmart was offering PA’s in their capacity as a medical professional the GOP and the Democrats could get behind a health care system that would offer front line protection for many more Americans.  This would be a Free Service provided by the Federal Government to get the lines out of the Private Hospital and Emergency Rooms.  Most people need advise and medical assistance.  Ms Kiviat is trained and willing to be that professional offering that service, lets give her this chance where it belongs, to the people.

Your column in IBD did less to sway me towards your heartfelt argument than it did to make many of us scream at whats wrong with the entire PA system.  We need many health care providers and may you and your fully trained associates become the best medical service you can be.  But not all of us,  wish to give up our options.

There two links to find the original print.  Thank you IBD for giving Betsy McCaughey a voice.

Remember the Maine

In Executive order, Obama on February 2, 2015 at 10:09 pm

Remember the Maine, the USS Maine sank off the coast of Cuba on February 15, 1898, and became the rallying cry for the Spanish America War. At the time it was enough to have President McKinley have to change his political stance from Anti War to Pro War and watch as his Assistant Secretary of the Navy became hero of the hour, Theodore Roosevelt.

Remember the Maine offered up mementos, souvenirs and made William Randolf Hurst papers the tabloids of the day.  Theodore Roosevelt would end up as the famous returning hero which lead him to  Governor of New York then Vice President and finally President all because of Cuba and the Maine.  Which was proven later as an internal explosion.  So we went to war over false pretenses.  Not the first or the Last.eeis_03_img0979

Remember the Maine: brought us peace with Spain and Cuba and also gave us Guantanamo Bay.  A treaty that has been served and honored by our side since Teddy was President.  For less than 5000 dollars a year we have paid for the privilege of having a base inside of Cuba.  The Castro regime will not cash the check but that’s their problem, we still send them, even the Obama Administration has thus far sent the checks.

President Obama may feel that the last 50 years hasn’t worked with Cuba but Teddy proved that when an enemy resists use overwhelming force to win.  Then negotiate.  Why does President Obama, a educated person not see that only when we Win and then offer terms do we have peace.  Not a retreat, not a surrender but peace.

Remember the Maine reminds me that overall Cuba isn’t really important on a world scale.  Yes we and the Russians allowed it to become important over Nuclear war and a standoff that even a Democratic President understood he wasn’t allowed to lose. President Kennedy did lose at the Bay of Pigs, but maybe that’s why he knew he could not back down to the Russians. Yet surrender to a dictator?  Why are we considering surrender?

Remember the Maine should be the cry when President Obama offers to surrender Guantanamo Bay.  Every Senator should have to vote on the treaty, which President Obama may or may not allow, again forgetting the constitution.  We gave up the Panama Canal because another President didn’t think thought the consequences of those actions and today the Chinese control what Theodore Roosevelt built.  Presidents Carter and Obama will not be in office when the citizens of this country suffer through their actions.  Iran because of President Carter still is causing us and the world grief.  Now because of President Obama and his executive orders, we are about to have  a Nuclear Iran, ISIS in control of most of the middle east, Russia taking over peaceful countries, A war with China and Japan which by treaty we must defend Japan and now peace with Dictators in Cuba.  President Obama will also get credit for this next Depression that all this overspending and taking money from those who earned it to buy votes from those who have not.  Neither of these men will be in office as the rest of us pay the price for ineptitude.

Remember the Maine:  We are returning territory we have already shed blood for, once again this is starting to sound all to familiar.
