If it’s good for the country the republicans will hate it

Have you noticed that anything good for the country the republicans will hate it. If they get laws past it’s so some body could make short term gains. Phil Gramm who caused most all the banking and oil price problems got old laws on the book to end so the market could run wild again. The laws he removed were ones that were past after the “Great Depression.” They were to keep banks, investment banks, stock market traders all honest. So Phil Gram working with his wife got a few laws changed and you seen what happened, this big bailout. There was last years spike in oil prices also where the market was manipulated. The republicans were saying we need a completely unregulated market because it will regulate itself. Well, we know that’s not true. That’s like asking a thief not to steel, a fire bug not to light fires, a serial killer not to kill and a stock trader to be honest.

Now that insurance and health care reform is on the table the republicans hate it because it’s regulating monopolies to bring down prices. To keep them honest after all they don’t just sit on all the money they collect they are investors also but the thing is they never loose. If there investment tanks you make up the loss. Your rates for insurance goes up not only in health care but any insurance you have.

If you want to see evil at it’s finest look into Life Insurance. First of all you have to be dead to collect so life is the wrong name. The people that come out to sell you insurance policy will sound real wimpy and talk softly to you. They get what you pay for your life insurance for the first year and a percentage the following years. It’s funny how different companies will make big claims about there companies when basically they are all the same. Better service claim really get me, your dead, you don’t need any services. The way they make it sound is like a energy account to keep the lights on and someone will be there to answer the phone.

Back to what republicans hate and if they hate it then it has to be good for the country. When they were the majority they did what was for big business say passing laws that keep you from filling bankruptcy. Then credit card companies sent out millions of teaser cards to get you hooked. Once you maxed out your card or cards they raised the percentage rate you where charged on the card and if you had any late payments they could raise it even higher setting there rates to what a loan shark would charge. There were load shark laws but the republicans found ways around them like find a state that doesn’t have any limits on the percentage they can charge. The company could be located anywhere as long as they had a office in the state that permitted loan sharking called usury laws. The states catered to the credit card companies since it brought jobs to the states which before only had jobs like farming.

So when it comes to insurance reform where insurance companies can’t cancel you policy they said they would follow states laws which means they will keep canceling people policies when you put in a claim for some expensive life threatening illness like cancer. Of course they will keep taking you money right up to the date you are canceled without giving you any idea that you are going to be canceled but they knew it. So I guess they will be making a national law to make sure that insurance companies can never cancel a policy because of the way they testified in congress.

What would really please me to see happen is like what they did in Germany make a law that all insurance companies are nonprofit. That way the CEO’s won’t be walking away with millions of dollars a year in bonuses because of the amount of money they saved by canceling peoples policies.

France #1

With the debate over health care and insurance reform being beaten around the public I’ve been hearing all sorts of horror stories from the “Radical Republican Right” spreading lies because they didn’t do their home work and actually go to those countries they are making statements about. “Socialism” the republicans are claiming and a few democrats also most of which are very much uninformed and very uneducated also. Lets face it, insurance companies want to keep everything the same and keep there monopoly status. After the fear mongering and lies that were spread back in the 90’s about the single payer system where every one would get a health card and the government would pay for everything. No rejections, no denial of service, no cancelation of policy because you put in a claim, it sounded real good except for all the lies that the insurance companies spread spending millions to buy off republican to lie for them and buying ad time on TV and radio making it look like the health program would make you wait month for treatment and hold back treatment because it was to costly. Well they are using that same game plan except the republicans just want to be nasty and make Obama loose this bill to make him look bad even though this would be a good program for the country and hold down cost. The baffle them with statistics, pulling numbers out of the republican but but there are used to storing things in there butts like log cabins. Hey let me hear you fart? So you went to Washington and as a tight end but now are a wide receivers packed with special interest plucking. They have learned not to stash the cash in the freezer but places where the sun don’t shine and where no one would one to check.

What the Radical Republicans with there defeat anything even if it’s good for the country except when they got behind Bush and Chaney to start the Iraq war. Then again they were spreading fear, there will be terrorist here under every rock. Spy on your neighbors and turn everyone in where they go off to the secret prisons for years only to find out they were innocent and didn’t know anything. Now suffering from PTSD from the torture or what they called it, “enhanced talking.” So after all those lies for the last eight years and a lot more if you count on what they did while Clinton was president. Newts promise the screwing with America Contract. Before that it was the Regan era. What to buy some cocaine for missiles? That’s when a wing-nut from Texas sent guns money and missiles to Afghanistan to help create the Taliban and El Qaida. The mantra back then was to get rid of communist at any cost. Don’t look at what monsters your crating, remember republicans are short sided look what they did to the economy. Sort term gains with devastating end game.

So, are you believing the republicans lies brought to you again by the insurance industry?

The republicans have been slamming the UK’s health system but they are at #18 and we are at #36 according to the WHO. France is Number 1 according to the WHO. Funny how the places that the republicans say are so bad are better then here. People live longer and healthier then here. So all the lies they have been saying about other countries make the republicans here look like real dummies.

One Cookie fits All

So been trying to get two Windows Live Spaces going. I have both accounts made up using unique names and emails for each account. Then I tried using Windows Live Writer for both accounts. It works fine for one account, this one which I set up and have been building up posting pictures and blogs. The other account has been sitting there doing nothing for a while. I got the Windows Live series of programs when they first came out. I was using mostly Outlook Express for my mail program and got the notice they were doing to drop it and switch over to the new more secure Windows Live Mail. I still have my Microsoft Office Outlook set up and working with all my mail accounts. So, I installed the Windows Live Mail program and the other programs which turned out to be alright. The Gallery program can handle the amount of pictures I have where all the other so called great picture manager programs all crashed big time. Adobe’s proto manager program crapped out right off the bat and needs a bunch of things you need to do to keep it up to date which takes forever to scan your hard drive and make thumb nails. Now that I have one site or space working well and it looks good but I want to change a couple thing still, I decided to set up the Windows Live Writer program for the other “Space” I have. I signed in and was moving things around on the “Space'” and fired up the Windows Live Writer program and went to sign into a new account. Well, it doesn’t work. When you sign in and tell it to remember your computer it put a Cookie or something that says I’m hooked to this account. So trying to set up another account it goes to the first one you set up. No problems with Google Blogger. No problem with the ad-ones to set stuff to Picasa or Flickr or YouTube but getting it to understand that you have two Spaces with two different emails that you sign in with and the title of the Space is different from each other is impossible. When I tried to sign in after that now it wants me to sign on with one email account only. When you click sign on with different account it put the name you don’t want there even though you clicked on the other name. Click sign on with different name or account it goes in circle over and over trying to make you sign in with the name that won’t work for that Space. What’s real ironic is doing a blog entry on the site or Space there’s a line saying to download the Windows Live Writer program. Over all I like the Windows Live Series of Programs even for the minor problems which I can work around. The menus and permission things can be a bit confusing. All the extra junk you can stick on to your Space is a bit much. I’m not one to give out a lot of my personal information or post it on line. Other then that everything is good except for the problem I had to deal with, “SysFader” which many other people have that same problem. That effects IE 8 and the Windows Live Series of program causing them to crash when you open them, but what’s new with problems with Windows and Microsoft programs, it’s always something with them so that’s nothing new.

So I installed everything again

So far after deleting all the empty files in the internet temp directories, most labeled “bogus” with nothing in the files but took up space because of the name. That added up to around 75k per directory. I deleted the empty directories also. Then I downloaded Internet Explorer and Windows Live install program. I installed both. Took a while to go through all the tests and checks. Finally it seems to be working and no crashes yet after battling this problem for over a week. No message, SysFader can’t read memory address XXXXXXXX. No messages from the Windows Live programs yet either. Lets see how long this all lasts.

Finding BOGUS files

That's right bogus files in the internet temp directory. thousands of bogus files with nothing in them taking up space because the names take up space which adds up to over 75k per directory. I've been deleting these files and while there noticed that I tried to respond to a letter and it generated a bunch of bogus files and Windows live mail closed and sent a error message.

SysFader driving me crazy

What's up with Microsoft products? All the sudden last weekend it started. I turned on the computer and it started doing updates. So far it seems normal but then Internet Explorer started getting errors and the send error message to Microsoft popped up but this message had a debug button which I haven't seen before. Then another message came up, SysFader can't read memory and then a address. You click "OK" on that button and another SysFader message comes up, not a new one but over where the other message was. It sort of is doing a cascade the way it moves across the screen. You can get rid of that message until Internet Explorer is closed. Internet Explorer tries to recover instead of closing something new which I haven't seen before.

It's not only Internet Explorer that's having the problems, all the Windows Live Programs all have problems too. I can't use the mail program. When I start a reply the page goes black and a message comes up saying it was sorry that Windows Live Mail needs to close. I never seen that message and the way it's written either. Photo Gallery doesn't work. You open the program and it sits ther for a while then closes, no messages. Same thing with Windows Live Writer. At first I started to write something then it close. So I opened the program up and let it sit there for a while and it would close.

Windows Live Messenger is acting weird also. I've never seen the window turn black before. I just logged in. So far every things working. I leave it sign in and see it it craps out like everything else is doing.

Checking the web and Microsoft site there are some fixes which don't work. When I sign in using Firefox to any Microsoft site Firefox crashes which is a first for me. I used Google Chome to get some tips but it was flashing on one page. I don't know if this is just a Microsoft program or if this is effecting other programs. Was I just having one of those days with Firefox because it's running just fine now and I did download some Microsoft programs today

Paid Programming

What is paid programming? It’s crap they can’t sell without a long sales pitch where you get sucked in to what they are selling. They always have things like health secrets revealed. New system using the word system to suck you in. It’s got to be good, it’s a system. Ya right, it’s a system of getting your money from your pocket into their pockets. Some of the sales people have been band by the FCC for false claims, that shouldn’t be surprising.  Loose tons of weight without lifting a finger. Then they show a 400 pound woman and supposedly the same woman slender, as before and after pictures using their new secret system for weight loss. Then the small type goes flying by or a guy speed talking blurts out that that results may vary. Whether it’s a knife that will cut a car in half or weight loss or other miracle pill it’s all bad crap if it’s in a infomrcial, pain programming. You think if people could be making tons of money they would be doing it themselves instead of selling the secrets which is the money maker. Where they make their money because what they are selling may work but most likely your wasting you money if you think your going to buy a house for a couple dollars and turn around and be making millions with girls in skimpy bikinis hanging off you arms in just months. I like the one where the guy says you have to be all you can be with a vacuum pump masturbating machine. He’s smiling, his wife is smiling and they say Medicare will or may pay for it.

Why didn’t you care where the money came from for War?

During the Bush years there were silent voices asking how are you going to pay for this war. Republicans made people out as none patriotic if they didn’t support Bush’s Wars.

Now people are whining how are you going to pay for health care when they are going to be the ones benefiting from that health care.

When Bush wanted to privatize social security letting people invest in the stock market with it’s derivatives that fell flat. AIG an insurance company took the biggest bailout but people are forgetting what happened last year. The insurance company AIG couldn’t insure what it was selling. They figured, well no one has made a claim so we won’t put money aside for claims and take that money and invest it in over rated stocks.

Health care will cost less than bailing out AIG and be better for you not them. That’s why the monopolies are spending so much money to stay monopolies.

Dick Army works for the bad guys

Listening to Dick speak about health care reform and all his lies he’s speeding. Remember he was the guy that exposed a CIA agent then hid behind the president not to be prosecuted. I thought it was a traitorous offence myself. Well, he’s against the people of the country like most good republican sucking up to monopolies and helping them to stay monopolies. There are a few others spreading lies also. The one that really got me that the radical right republican woman that can’t read. She was reading of a page or so she said on a radio show talking about death board. Palin is no better but she used her body to get places. You know she’s got a tan vagina now for her husband and who ever else she needs to persuade. “I can see Palin’s vagina from my porch.” The health care monopoly has pulled out all the stops spending millions to defeat the public health plan. They have been giving examples of Canadian and UK’s public health saying you get put on a list and it take months to see a doctor, which is completely false. No one there goes bankrupt over getting health care there. Unlike here where 3 out of 5 bankruptcies are caused by medical bills. Lets not forget what the financial industry did about bankruptcy during the Bush years, corporations can claim bankruptcy any time they want but people can’t. So banks and credit card companies flooded the markets with credit card giving them to anyone that could make their mark on a slip saying they will pay for what they bought.

What type of republican moron would say I want insurance companies to restrict service saying those tests aren’t worth it. That wants insurance companies to cancel there policy when they come down with a life threatening illness like cancer. That’s everything thee loudmouths are saying the public plan would do but they are already getting that and want to keep that type of service with all those restrictions. Dick wants you to keep everything the same and so do the monopolies called insurance companies.

Why isn’t anyone bringing up not for profit insurance companies. German did that, converted the for profit companies into not for profit companies with one law. That’s what we need here.

Palin is a looser, quitter, lier

Palin says the the health reform is going to make people sign up to die, what a lie. Then again she made her way from her looks and not her smarts.

The republicans in bed with the insurance companies want to do everything they can to keep prices high and health care for profit. The idea you can only insure healthy people only. Ironically many of the republicans in office couldn’t get insured felt on there own. Tax people pick up there high price. Chaney could get health insurance. He’s had 4 heart attacks, bypass surgery, pacemaker, drugs, everything to disqualify him from being insured.

We need a law to make all insurance companies to be nonprofit. As it is they only spend 28 cents of every dollar they bring in for health. They are also a investment companies and if they loose on a investment they will raise your rates which have nothing to do with your health. They set their profit amount and don’t take anything less.

Who supports republicans

That’s real simple, stupid Americans in states like Alabama. There there are the republicans that are spreading lies about health care reform and the hillbillies believe every word. Only stupid people support republicans because they don’t know any better even though they are voting against what would help them.

If people of Alabama want to be poor hicks with guns, drunk so they don’t see what’s going on while watching stock car races. Fine, but someone should tell them they are really getting screwed. That republicans are big business the ones shipping jobs over seas. Why can’t they see that? Too drunk to see the world and can’t read a news paper or watch the news. I’m sure these are the same people listening to Rush and Fox news. Someone has to listen to that crap and it might as well be stupid people in Alabama.

Stupid people don’t just live in Alabama, Oklahoma is another good place for stupid hicks. Everything they think they are voting for is just the opposite. Republicans don’t have morals at least the elected officials because they are making deals with big business. You think this depression wasn’t started by republicans. Bush giving the oil companies a big bonus before leaving office and trying to get offshore drilling going. Then Phil Gramm and his wife who got commodities and banking finance  deregulated causing these bizarre products that were sold that were over rated. Why the rating companies are in trouble for getting paid for giving products high ratings when they were crap and they knew it but they were paid to rate them high which is a conflict of interest.

If you ask me, the people running the ratings companies need to be placed in jail. Better yet make them pay for everyone’s losses. Not bank but all the people that investing in crap that was rated by them.

No tax below $250,000

Obama said no taxes on the middle class, people making $250,000 and below. Funny isn’t that’s what congress and senate pull in? Plus they get all those breaks and benefits costing a lot which normal people would have to pay for. All the free airline trips which we would have to pay for. Pelosi gets a jet that can fly from coast to coast because she didn’t like to stop for fuel. Seems like she should rent out part of the space to recoup some of the cost so that tax payer would have to foot the bill every weekend. Her flower bill for the first three months in office was enough to pay three people social security benefits for a year. Then when they retire they get there highest salary times every term they were in office. North Carolina’s Senator Byrd will retire with $12 million a year.  Lucky he’s old and the country won’t be paying that out too long. Still the cut off for the people who can afford to pay taxes bothers me. Now if it was in a more practical range like $50,000 or $60,000 dollars a year that would make more sense.

Weather movie, extra Cheese

I’ve seen bad movies and two of them on NBC in a row, two two week two part movies wasting my time, both times. Something that could have been a one day two hour movie was stretched out filled with crappy music that should have been in a video game and not scored for a movie. This movie was so cheesy. Whether it was the science done without any help from real science people to the cheesy rays coming out of the radar dishes. You know you can’t see magnetic wave no matter how hard you try. Then turning off a storm in the nick of time to end the movie. “Storm” has to be someone’s movie that they won’t use on there resume. What was NBC thinking okaying this movie, then showing it, what were they thinking. Did they make that much in advertising. Makes you wonder if a movie is going to be on NBC that you might not want to watch it because of there history of making in house movies. Well you get what you pay for whether it’s where you watched it, free off air DTV or the NBC people that made this movie.

Just think, next fall they are beating a night with talk show hosts are going to pull them out. Would be nice if they had programs to replace all the infomercials.
