  • Want to Homeschool in Ohio? I hope you’ve been deemed worthy.

    Want to homeschool in Ohio? You’ll get to as soon as you are approved as a-ok by government bureaucrats. You thought it was up to you? Oh silly subject, that’s a ridiculous thing to think. Only the government is qualified to decide if you are homeschooling material.

    It requires all parents who homeschool to undergo a social services investigation which would ultimately determine if homeschooling would be permitted. Social workers would have to interview parents and children separately, conduct background checks and determine whether homeschooling is recommended or not. If it is not recommended, parents would have to submit to an “intervention” before further consideration of their request to homeschool

    The reasoning for attempting to pass this law is super simple. The government failed to do their job and protect a child from abuse. Abuse they were made aware of, did nothing to stop and the child died. So, their answer is to make more miserable failure of laws and take more of your rights away, further subjugating serfs to the masters, which will do nothing to stop abusers from killing children if the government isn’t going to do the job they are already tasked with. It would seem there is no end to the things the government fails at, yet thinks that is there are just enough laws, they will some how succeed. This is false and losing our personal and parental rights will not make the children safer.

    Soon you will have to make a choice. Either all children are property of the state, to control and raise as they see fit or children are members of the family unit, where imperfect parents will make mistakes and people who have no business raising kids do. There is no other way for this to go. As parental rights are eroded to make up for the failures of government, soon they will come for your children too.

    It is going to be a very sad day when I say to my granddaughter, “I remember when we were free my dear.”

  • ObamaCare: So awesome, we keep exempting people from it.

    Today the White House announced another, Constitutionally illegal (the fourteenth to be exact), executive policy change to the ObamaCare Law. They will allow folks with cancelled plans to purchase those crappy bare-bones “catastrophic” plans that weren’t good enough when the law was first passed, but now that it is a complete disaster, those plans are fine.

    Hundreds of thousands of people whose health plans are being canceled because their coverage doesn’t meet Obamacare rules will be exempt next year from the U.S. mandate that all Americans carry medical insurance.

    People losing coverage will now be allowed to buy bare-bones “catastrophic” insurance that the law usually limits to those younger than age 30, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said yesterday. Others can opt out completely without the threat of the fines being imposed next year on the uninsured as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

    So yesterday this type of plan wasn’t good enough for any American, any where. Today, they are perfectly acceptable. And, they are only acceptable because your government says they are acceptable.

  • Baba Wawa thought Obama would replace Jesus

    We in the Tea Party always knew they though Obama was the next great coming of our Lord and Savior. From all the great prose that was written about his election, to his own declaration on election night that the “The seas will recede. The planet will heal.” But now after 5 years of disappointment Baba Wawa admits, during the Christmas season no-less, the result is so crushing, because the expectation was so high.

    PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?

    BARBARA WALTERS: Well, you’ve touched on it to a degree. He made so many promises. We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah. And the whole ObamaCare, or whatever you want to call it, the Affordable Health Act, it just hasn’t worked for him, and he’s stumbled around on it, and people feel very disappointed because they expected more.

    It’s very difficult when the expectations for you are very high. You’re almost better off when they are low and then they rise and rise. His were very high and they’ve dropped. But you know, he still has several years to go. What does he have, three years, Piers? And, you know, there will be a lot of changes, one thinks in that time.

    Luckily, I had no expectation other than what has happened. Obama’s economic policies are a disaster, his healthcare law is a disaster, his gun confiscation desires are a disaster, and there is no doubt that his unfettered, unchecked, illegal immigration policy will be a disaster. My only hope at this point is that the vast majority of Americans will finally see how disastrous this man and more importantly, these policies, are for our country and in 2016 they will do something about it. I hate to say I told you so…….but I did.

  • Your Politically Correct Idiocy of the Day: 5-year old suspended for finger gun.

    Ban pointer-fingers now!

    GASTON COUNTY, N.C. (CBS Charlotte) –  A 5-year-old boy was reportedly suspended from school after making a gun gesture with his hand on the playground.

    His father, David Hendrix, was furious when he found out his son was issued a suspension for the gesture.

    “He was playing army on the playground,” Hendrix told WBTV. “I just felt like the punishment was way too severe.”

  • More proof Obama cares for no one else but himself
    The tech guys wanted to talk NSA, but Obama wasnt having any of that.

    Obama ‘hijacks’ tech executive meeting to make ‘PR pitch’ on Obamacare website fix instead of dealing with NSA surveillance

    “….One executive said that meeting participants were dead-set against straying from the principal focus of the meeting – the uncomfortable and legally untenable position they are in when the National Security Agency demands access to their digital records. The White House said in advance that the meeting would include a discussion of healthcare.gov, but the company executive said the only subject that mattered to the participants was the NSA.

    ‘He basically hijacked the meeting,’ the executive said. ‘We all told the White House that we were only there to talk about what the NSA was up to and how it affects us.’

    You’ll listen to how awesome Healthcare.gov is first peon!

  • Kidney grown from stem cells

    Now here is some news I can actually get behind!

    Scientists in Australia have grown the world’s first kidney from stem cells – a tiny organ which could eventually help to reduce the wait for transplants.
    The breakthrough, published in the journal Nature Cell Biology, followed years of research and involved the transformation of human skin cells into an organoid – a functioning “mini-kidney” with a width of only a few millimetres.
    Scientists are hoping to increase the size of future kidneys and believe the resulting organs will boost research and allow cheaper, faster testing of drugs. Within the next three to five years, the artificial organs could be used to allow doctors to repair damaged kidneys within the body, rather than letting diseases develop before proceeding with a transplant.
    “This is the first time anybody has managed to direct stem cells into the functional units of a kidney,” Professor Brandon Wainwright, from the University of Queensland, told The Telegraph.

    Unfortunately it looks like it’s a decade of more away. I can’t wait that long.

  • Hey! Here is a GREAT way to boost those ObamaCare Enrollments-Unauthorized debits!

    Holy cow…..well that’s one way to make sure folks buy the insurance they “put in their cart”. Just debit that payment right out of their accounts without asking.

    ….Some of them say the website is mistakenly debiting their accounts.

    Shannon Bruner of Indianola logged on to her checking account Monday morning, and found she was almost 800 dollars in the negative.

    “The first thing I thought was, ‘I got screwed,’” she said.

    The Bruners enrolled for insurance on the Washington Healthplanfinder website, last October. They say they selected the bill pay date to be December 24th. Instead the Washington Healthplanfinder drafted the 835 dollar premium Monday.

  • HHS wants insurers to cover people who have a plan in their basket-no payment required

    There is no doubt they’re doing this so they can release supercalifragilisticexpialidocious numbers on enrollment in ObamaCare before the end of the year. Otherwise, the enrollment numbers are abysmal.

    More specifically, the Department of Health and Human Services will now pressure health insurers to retroactively accept payment for coverage that was supposed to begin on January 1, even if no payments have been made and no coverage has been formally granted. Furthermore, HHS wants insurers to pay out-of-network providers as though they were in-network “to ensure continuity of care for acute episodes,” and to pay for refill prescriptions under previous plans.”
    In other words, if you applied for Obamacare, have not been enrolled, have not paid a dime, and get sick on January 1, the Obama administration now wants insurance companies to pay for your care before you ever pay a dime. Furthermore, they want you to get care for which you will not be approved under your insurance plan.

     After I read through the document, it’s clear what they are trying to do. With the extended coverage they are encouraging insurers to provide (i.e: out-of-network benefits, extended drug coverage) they don’t want consumers to realize the full amount of coverage they are actually going to lose in this process. By hiding exactly what doctors or medications are out of reach in these new plans for the first 30 days, and having insurers in the Exchanges can wait to get the money, HHS is buying time. Insurers can wait to inform (by covering them for the first 30-days) consumers that their preferred doctors or life saving drugs are not covered-and consumers will have plans that don’t meet their needs. It delays, until 30-days after the first of the year, the outrage that people will have when the full impact of this legislation begins to hit the masses. I’m sure it is the hope of the Administration that this will spread out the pain out enough that media coverage will not make it look so bad. And, it puts insurers in the position of waiting to receive payment on insurance plans that are most likely covering only the sickest and most needy patients.

    Exit question-Since when is it ok for the government to tell companies you must provide service to consumers even though they’ve made no effort to pay? How about if I start ordering from Amazon with a promise to pay within the next 30-days….how about the government orders that mandate.
