The Obama administration is launching a nationwide campaign to advertise for the Affordable Care Act. The campaign will cost roughly 684 million dollars.
The administration is hoping to use this advertising to reach out to people that are unaware of Obamacare. It also seems as if the advertising could possibly be used to hoodwink the American people. Continue reading
On Monday, U.S. Justice Department filed a lawsuit against Florida, accusing the state of unnecessarily institutionalizing about 200 disabled children in nursing homes and cutting services that would allow them to receive care at home.
According to the article at Fox News, federal investigators made the discovery while visiting just six nursing homes around the state. Several children have apparently stayed nursing homes for years and have even grown up in one. Continue reading
Martin family attorney, Jasmine Rand, claims that she is a ‘social engineer.’ Yes, you read that correctly! In an interview with On The Record’s, Greta van Susteren, Rand claims that she has “a greater duty beyond being an attorney, and that’s to be a social engineer.”
The phrase ‘social engineer’ disturbed me quite a bit. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as the “management of human beings in accordance with their place and function in society.” That doesn’t sound to bad does it? Guess again! Continue reading
At the end of part one, I pretty much said that we should respect the jury’s verdict instead of criticizing it. I will always stand by this principle. Acting like crazy people no home training is not going to change anything. Instead, it degrades our society and seemingly takes us back decades
Make no mistake, protest is good and it is a demonstration of our right to free speech. However, there is a line that separates peaceful protest from not so peaceful protest. Continue reading
To begin, let me state that I didn’t want to have an opinion on the Zimmerman trial. In fact, I tried not to pay much attention to the case because people were making the case about race. A controversial case like this always stirs up controversy because people become passionate about them. Controversy can be a good thing because we all voice what we truly think.
Benjamin Franklin once said that, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” I believe that Franklin was telling us is that if a nation/people let their guard down just a little, the government would slowly take more and more, responsibility and freedom from the people. In doing so, the governing body would become increasingly powerful. Its leaders would become so power-loving that they would stop at nothing to take complete control from their constituents. In the process, making the government larger and larger to the point where it is no longer the republic which our founding fathers risked everything to erect firmly in this nation.
A republic is a unique form of government where the ultimate power is held by the people and their elected officials. America is among the few places on earth where the people rule. Yet, for some reason many people do not make their voices heard! Other nations would be overjoyed to have the freedom to vote given to them. A large number of my fellow Americans, refuse to use this privilege and for whatever reasons, they aren’t bothered by their decision.
Why do some people refuse to vote? Here are a few excuses…
Question to ponder: Imagine for a moment that you are having a private conversation with someone on your cell phone via text message or phone call. How would you feel if the said conversation wasn’t as private as you thought?
In today’s “digital age” it is becoming increasingly easier for law enforcement to invade one’s privacy. It’s reported that last year (2011), law enforcement authorities submitted over 1.3 million demands for cell phone subscriber information. These include demands for “Cell Phone tower” dump files, which give law enforcement all data from cell phone users within range of that particular tower in question.
The requesting of dump files makes it sound like law enforcement authorities want anything that they can get their hands on. Its as if, they are policing our interactions with one another (the proverbial haystack) in hopes that they will prevent something before it happens (the proverbial needle). Yes, I agree that law enforcement should try to be proactive anywhere that they can; but are we as a nation of freedom, willing to give up our privacy for our own Continue reading
