Fri Feb 22 11:40:56 2013 · by SeekAndFind · 11 repliesBusiness Insider ^ | 02/22/2013 | Walter HickeyThe U.S. government is one week away from the sequester deadline, when $1.2 trillion of across-the-board spending cuts will go into effect. The budget slashing is set to hit everything from NASA to food inspectors, and members of both parties are alternately playing the blame game and trying to come up with a solution to avoid the cuts. Still, it’s worth noting that there are some things the government spends money on that could definitely go. Each year, the conservative Heritage Foundation combs through the budget and points out some particularly egregious expenditures and redundancies. Here are forty cuts they’ve…
Fri Feb 22 11:33:25 2013 · by george76 · 12 repliesThe Washington Examiner ^ | February 21, 2013 | Richard PollockA health insurance company headed by an old friend from Obama’s days as a community organizer got a $340 million federal loan to establish Obamacare co-ops in New York, New Jersey and Oregon despite having a chronic record of consumer and regulatory complaints. The New York-based Freelancers Insurance Company has been rated the “worst” insurer for two straight years by state regulators, and data compiled by a national insurance association show an extremely high rate of consumer complaints. The firm was founded in 2008 by Sara Horowitz, who worked with Obama before his career in elective politics to launch Demos,…

The sorry state of free speech.
by KURT SCHLICTER
Let’s clarify things for those folks with the unseemly desire to offer up their personal sovereignty to some government hack. Unlike Hollywood geniuses better known for exposing their breasts than exposing their brains, I’ll never pledge to be a servant of any politician.

The base, in the deserts of Semnan far from any city, has many underground tunnels connecting to the silo launching pads, according to a source in the Revolutionary Guards intelligence unit.
Silencing, by means legal or extra-legal means, free speech that criticizes Islam or any other belief system is where “hate speech” laws inexorably lead. It is exactly where the OIC and Islamic ummah want them to lead.
An alternative economic ecosystem based on local enterprise and building community resilience is slowly self-organizing.

Todd Spodek, Esq. – 2/22/2013

Sex is our society’s biggest taboo, even greater than gambling. (See william hill promo code 2013). And yet, it is normal for men to attract women and the reverse.

The Japanese Health Care System
Susan Goya – 2/22/2013
I lived in Japan for nearly twenty years. For most of that time my family was qualified to use the Japanese single-payer health care system that was similar, though somewhat different from the Korean fashion of medical service. I have experience as both an uninsured (full pay patient) and an insured user of Japanese health care. Before I went to Japan, I had worked as a Medicare claims examiner, and as an insurance biller for both a large hospital and a priva…

The looting by criminals did not help either, except maybe the alarm monitoring companies. Even the short term loans are hard to get. Real estate prices have further down.
