Random Thoughts for late March 2014!

Six million sign ups for Obama-Care?

Six million!! That's the number released by the Obama Administration today. What's that mean? – absolutely nothing as the government has yet to release any figure as to how many of these people; 1) have actually paid an insurance company and therefore are really covered, 2) how many of these figures are sign ups were for Medicaid and 3) how many were young healthy people – people needed to make the entire Ponzi scheme work!

Russian troops invade Ukraine!

How long before the news media will be able to post the headline, 'Russian troops march into Ukraine!' I'd say not very long and I say this for a rather simple reason. It takes a lot of rubles to support a standing army stationed on another country's border. Russia currently has somewhere between fifty and one hundred thousand troops on the Ukrainian border as I made this post late in March 2014. With not so deep economic pockets, I have to wonder how far into April we'll get before either an invasion takes place or the troops will have to be sent home for lack of resources?

And what of our President during this critical period of time? I can personally guarantee that Obama will do absolutely nothing. He might shake his finger, he might bow some more, but as far as offering any real resistance? You can forget about it. All of Europe is already aware of this fact and is prepared to cower in unison as the next of a series of Russian takeovers kicks into a higher gear.

President Obama may even be calculating that if he can just stall long enough, World War III will be the problem of some other President.... I know that many of us Americans are sick and tired of war. God knows we've been involved in enough conflicts. Live have been lost and trillions spent. But, the willingness to get involved when other people's rights are trampled is exactly what's set our country apart from all the others over so many decades! Now, is not the time to turn our backs on others in need!

Prices rising and no end in sight!

While the economy continues to wallow along like a drunk fighting a hangover, creeping inflation in the form of rising prices for grocery items (a 3.5% increase this summer according to Fox News) and gasoline. Neither of these areas are discretionary, but rather mandatory areas of expense and that is hurting more and more Americans.

What's Obama doing about this state of affairs? His EPA Bureau is moving silently forward to insure that your energy costs for heating and cooling your home will continue to skyrocket.
