Barack Obama-Post Racial President – In A Pig’s Eye

by Richard H. Frank

The mainstream media proclaimed that the election of Barack Obama to be President of the United States in 2008 ushered in a new era of post-racial politics in America.  Eighteen months into his presidency, we have witnessed our President accusing the Boston police of “acting stupidly” relative to the arrest of Professor Gates before having reviewed any facts associated with the incident.

This incident was followed closely by the Acorn scandal for voter fraud and alleged financing of housing for illegal purposes.  That investigation has been mysteriously abandoned with no explanation from the Justice Department.

Then we have the charge of “voter intimidation” by the “New Black Panthers” in the 2008 Philadelphia, PA election.  The default judgment against the defendant again was mysteriously dropped.

Now we learn of the alleged Justice Department policy not to pursue civil rights cases involving black crimes against whites.

Next, we learn Eric Holder is threatening to bring a second law suit against Arizona based on discrimination from racial profiling resulting from implementation of the law. Allegations of this type might be brought against any law and is ripe for fraud.

The Obama Administration, short of legislating reparations as such, for past crimes against minorities is pursuing the same result through redistribution of wealth which is the underlying agenda for all their proposed legislation.

The modus operandi for Obama is to divide and conquer.  First he has attacked the “haves” in the form of taxes to be redistributed to the “have nots” through increased entitlements (i.e., health care reform)  Next, he has attempted to set Hispanics against Whites by asserting that enforcement of immigration law by the states is racist.

His assertion that he only wishes to level the playing field  between the races lacks legitimacy as his policies have only served to destroy the free enterprise system, discourage job creation and ultimately bring more misery to all races in the middle class of America.  This, coupled with the moratorium on oil production in the Gulf of Mexico, will increase the burden on every economic sector in the  Country.

Chaos, mistrust between the races and vilifying business and the financial industry serves his agenda to pit people against people, race against race and government against free enterprise.  According to Obama  and the Democratic-controlled Congress, the answer to all the above  crises, real or fabricated, is more government intervention, oversight and control.

By his own admission Obama says our Constitution is fundamentally flawed and that civil rights’ law failed to properly address  redistribution in solving civil rights problems.  His policies are anything but “post racial” and his actions covertly inflame racial tensions largely eliminated over the past 40 years.  Post racial – No!  I expect his motives are to use racism as the means to achieve his agenda and are tearing this Country apart.

A Look Into the Future for Obamacare

by Jayne D. Frank

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) has yet to be fully implemented not only because the Government cannot meet its own timetable in 2010, but because it has become obvious that more bureaucracy, and added funds to cover such bureaucracy, will be needed to put those initial plans into effect.   Americans are also finding out that there are still over 23 million people who won’t be covered and as such, more taxpayer money will be needed to cover those uninsured people when they get sick and need treatment.  Premiums are and will be going up for people with existing insurance policies at least 10%, with elderly people being hit the hardest with an even higher premium for their insurance.

This week, we have another wonderful look into the future of Obamacare and the draconian cuts that are going to be made by Donald Berwick, as we received news that tens of thousands of UK National Health System jobs are going to be cut.  This number of cuts is also skewed by the fact that only a fourth of the foundations administering these jobs across the country responded and gave that 10,000 job loss projection.

In the UK Telegraph article dated July 7 by Rebecca Smith, she cited the NHS as having to make existing savings of between the equivalent of $23 billion and $30 billion US over the next four years while trying to find ways to trim the waste in the system.  And this is the system that Donald Berwick “loves so much?”

Because the mid-term elections are coming up, the Administration and both Democrat and Republican Congressmen are staying away from this issue like the plague,  Americans must stay informed and continue to  hold the Administration and their representatives accountable (especially those who voted for this fiasco) for everything that is about to happen in the United States because of passage of this bill.

The British people are already experiencing excessive job cuts especially in the specialties and in the nursing staffs, taking away those nurses from people “with long-term conditions”…who must be kept stable “and out of hospital.”

Dr. Peter Carter of the RCN indicated that the latest job loss cuts would “lead to more hospital scandals where appalling standards of care led to unnecessary deaths.”

God help our sick and chronically ill in this country if this health care law is not repealed!
