Remembering and honoring; The Medicare suprise; Hoekstra vs. Stabenow; Its about those defense workers; Michelle excited about school lunch changes; Mitt promises to help you and your family; NY Post runs ad revealing Obama's true father; Obama call Paul Ryan Jack; 6% pay raise not enough for Chicago teachers; Obama's SS# questioned in Ohio; The "No more Solyndra's" act to be voted upon;

Remembering those who lost so much 11 years ago, we honor those who continue to fight for our freedom.
In case any of you are on Medicare Advantage Plans, you need to be aware of this change.
Watch this short 2 minute video and pass it on to all the seniors you know. Medicare Advantage cuts begin in mid-October of this year. Seniors vote, and they need to know this cut is coming before the election. Time is running out for seniors unaware of this.
    Transparency in action? I think you should know this.
Remember what FDR said, "There are no coincidences in politics..." [Are you aware of the fact that the Obama Administration tried to stop the Department of Defense from following the law by giving a 6 weeks notice of pending layoffs?  Yes, Obama didn't want them to know the effects of his Sequestration law's effects (tens of thousands of layoffs) until after the election.] http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0912/81007.html

Here is my response to a friend asking me about this: This scheme to prevent bad news til after Obama's possible reelection is old hat for Obama, so it is easy to believe that there is a surprise in store for us after the election regarding Medicare pricing.  Just why do you think that the DEMOCRAT Senate has failed for 3 years to carry out its Constitutional duty to pass a budget each year?  They are putting off the adult conversations til after the election so as not to offend their constituents, that is why. Meanwhile they can condemn Romney and Ryan for actually acting like adults who want to save our economy. This is the same reason so many of Obamacare's mandates don't start til AFTER his reelection.  And scheduled tax increases are set to begin AFTER his reelection.  Get the idea?

I was thrown out of our Medicare Advantage over a year ago, as Michigan Blue Cross/Blue Shield no longer offers it..  And it is entirely true that more than $600 billion will be taken from Medicare reimbursements to hospitals and doctors in order to have that money support Obamacare so that it might look more cost efficient.  And yes, we are paying for it for 4 years prior to full implementation in order to make the 10 year numbers look artificially good. The old Ryan plan would have cut about the same amount by finding cost savings like fraud, but the money would have stayed in Medicare.  Obama's plan takes that money directly out and puts it directly into Obamacare.  If you think for a minute that Obamacare will save money, you simply have not been paying attention to the Congressional Budget Office's numbers once the truth of the thing was given to them.

Be prepared for doctors to retire or to quit taking Medicare patients. and for more small hospitals to just shut down their operations.  Look for the panel of Presidential appointees to decide that at a certain age, certain surgeries will no longer be time and money worthy.  Too bad - as Obama said, "perhaps it will be better to just give you a pill."  Sounds good, unless it is you he is talking about. 

I've read that Republics don't last more that about 235 years, because by then more than half of the people desire not to work because they have finagled money from government.  The other 50% just can't keep up.  As Margaret Thatcher said about Socialism, sooner or later they run out of other people's money.  This election shall decide the future of America - and I am truly scared.

Barack Obama, I can assure you, is not the man most Democrats thought him to be. He truly thinks America became powerful by bringing other countries down, and he believes our country should be no better than any other.  So, if we take our money and send it to the rest of the world, that just might happen.

But - ask me how I really feel!  King Barack is a danger to our country!

I just wanted to share Pete [Hoekstra's] new web ad with you, titled "Meet the Parents."  It discusses the specific aspects of Debbie Stabenow's record that make her the "worst senator."  If you could pass this around to your contacts via Facebook, Twitter, and email, that would greatly help us get Pete's message out on a grassroots level.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Major defense contractors have confirmed they’ll send tens of thousands of employee layoff warnings shortly before Election Day, according to correspondence released Monday by Arizona Sen. John McCain.
McCain, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, wants to jump-start congressional action to avert automatic, across-the-board budget restrictions set to take effect early next year. Hawks and defense vendors hope the threat of mass layoff warnings in late October will light a fire under a deadlocked Congress. Already, they point out the mere threat of the year-end “sequester” is hurting the defense industry and the broader national economy.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ First Lady Michelle Obama delivered a back to school message for children to inform them of the “exciting changes” to their lunchrooms this year, thanks to federally mandated healthy food choices now in effect. http://cnsnews.com/news/article/mrs-obama-s-back-school-message-exciting-changes-cafeteria 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It was pretty obvious to me what Mitt Romney was doing last week in Tampa when he said, with a smile, “President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. MY promise…is to help you and your family.”
But the joke wasn’t rising sea levels. The joke was that Obama could control the sea levels. He can’t. Under no circumstance could public policy slow sea-level rise in the next 35 years. More on that below. http://washingtonexaminer.com/obama-doesnt-believe-in-climate-science.-he-believes-in-climate-fantasy./article/2507503?custom_click=rss#.UE8m7aPcDpK 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The New York Post has accepted a full-page ad declaring Barack Obama’s real biological father is the late Communist Party activist Frank Marshall Davis, not the Kenyan Barack Hussein Obama.
Filmmaker Joel Gilbert makes the case in his full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception.”
The ad will run in the Post’s New York City, national and international editions Tuesday and Sunday. [Click on the link to see for yourself.]  In July, Gilbert tried to place a similar version of his full-page advertisement in three of the nation’s most prominent newspapers – USA Today, the Washington Post and the New York Times – offering first to pay USA Today $90,000.
President Obama told book author Bob Woodward he “made a mistake” criticizing Paul Ryan during a 2011 speech that Ryan attended.
“I’ll go ahead and say it — I think that I was not aware when I gave that speech that Jack (sic – Paul) Ryan was going to be sitting right there,” Obama told Woodward, reports ABC World News, which reviewed an audio tape of the interview.
There’s just one thing…
Obama personally invited Paul Ryan to the speech… And Paul Ryan RSVP’d the White House saying he would be there. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/09/obama-says-he-didnt-know-ryan-was-going-to-be-at-his-disgusting-partisan-budget-speech-that-he-invited-ryan-to-attend-that-ryan-rsvpd-the-white-house-telling-them-hed-be-there/
Seventy-nine percent of the 8th graders in the Chicago Public Schools are not grade-level proficient in reading, according to the U.S. Department of Education, and 80 percent are not grade-level proficient in math.
Chicago public school teachers went on strike on Monday and one of the major issues behind the strike is a new system Chicago plans to use for evaluating public school teachers in which student improvement on standardized tests will count for 40 percent of a teacher's evaluation. Until now, the evaluations of Chicago public school teachers have been based on what a Chicago Sun Times editorial called a "meaningless checklist." [Another issue is that they are demanding a 16% pay increase!]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------On July 2 of this year, Daniels filed suit in Geauga County (Ohio) Common Pleas Court demanding that Jon Husted, Ohio secretary of state, remove Obama's name from the ballot until Obama can prove the validity of his Social Security number.
Husted has responded by seeking to dismiss Daniels' complaint, claiming that it has no basis in law.  Daniels fired back that President Barack Obama has violated Ohio's identity theft statute that "expressly prohibits the use of another's 'personal identifying information' and expressly lists the use of another's 'Social Security number' as prohibited."  She did not expect much out of Husted, and her expectations appear to have been met.
Friday, Daniels took another tack.  She filed a sworn affidavit under Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 2935.09, which allows a private citizen "having knowledge of the facts" to request prosecution or arrest of an individual who has committed a crime.  The affidavit makes the case clearly.

This week, the No More Solyndras Act (H.R. 6213) is up for a vote on the House floor.  In July, Heritage Action advised Congress to reign in reckless, politically motivated spending on energy projects by passing this act; the message remains the same today.
The No More Solyndras Act was designed to prevent other failures like Solyndra from happening in the future, which is something every taxpayer should like if they recall how much Solyndra cost them – half a billion dollars for those keeping score.  It does so by phasing out the Department of Energy’s (DOE) loan guarantee program under Title XVII of the Energy Policy Act of 2005.  It would also require the DOE to report to Congress on the decision-making process and details of the loan, improving loan transparency and further protecting taxpayers. http://heritageaction.com/2012/09/no-more-solyndras/
