Rand Paul: Prosecute James Clapper for Lying to Congress

Rand Paul: Prosecute James Clapper for Lying to Congress | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
 After Edward Snowden leaked documents revealing the NSA’s illegal spying on American citizens, the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, lied to Congress about the extent of the NSA’s unconstitutional surveillance program.
Skip Stein's insight:

Aren't you just sick and tired of these lying cheating politicians?  They do nothing but legislate idiotic laws they don't read and let the Executive Branch run roughshod over them violating the Constitution left and right.  A few like Rand Paul, at least, are trying to do the right thing but it will take a LOT of change in 2014 to even begin to dump the ass-holes and clean up the Government.

Inefficiencies run rampant and are clearly documented yet these idiots in Congress take the easy way and go after the Veterans.  No Obama is going after Little Sisters of the Poor?  Such arrogance is unparalleled and needs to be stopped!  One way is to elect a House and Senate majority of NEW BLOOD that will stand up to Obama.  Not a fix but a start!

Skip Stein's insight:

Does this not sound much like the policies being attempted by the Obama Administration?  Collusion with major healthcare companies and others like big pharmaceutical, agribusiness and automotive (bail outs) as well as National banks (Federal Reserve), all colluding to suppress our Freedom and Liberty?  Bigger is NOT better!

Skip Stein's insight:

There are over 68,000 different codes that can be used for preparing a health care claim form.  Think all the States can agree on them and how to present them?  They go into effect in 2014, just in time for full blown Obamacare. Good luck for us!

Skip Stein's insight:

You can't trust the idiots in government.  Why on earth would you give them open access to your bank accounts?  Aren't taxes bad enough without giving them a 'blank check'?  Try to recover those overdraft fees now; even though the government made a 'mistake'!  Good luck!

Recreational pot now legal to buy in Colorado; the nation is watching to see results

Recreational pot now legal to buy in Colorado; the nation is watching to see results | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
Recreational pot now legal to buy in Colorado; the nation is watching to see results
Skip Stein's insight:

Maybe this will help end the disastrous and hugely costly and totally FAILED 'War on Drugs'.  It could also open up the long suppressed Hemp Industry to allow farmers to grow industrial hemp for clothes, and all sorts of great things.  Hemp has been illegal, largely due to insane drug fears and the lobbying of the cotton industry and other 'fiber' industries.  As a 'weed' hemp grows well almost anywhere, needs little tending or insecticide and is great for the environment.  It also has massive potential for Health and Medical use as the Hemp Oil has been shown effective treating cancers.  Then there are the Hemp Seed, very high in Omega-3 Healthy Fatty Acids (currently imported from other countries).  This is about more than just getting high, it is about an entire industry that has been suppressed for decades!

A New Era For Entrepreneurs And Startups Has Begun

A New Era For Entrepreneurs And Startups Has Begun | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
There is additional encouraging news for aspiring entrepreneurs on many fronts, just in case you are thinking about joining the existing ranks.
Skip Stein's insight:

As the economy continues to flounder as more and more are loosing jobs and the few that do find jobs are 'underemployed' and way overqualified for the work they can find, people are striking out on their own to survive.  In 2014 when the 'employer mandate' with Obamacare kicks in and company insurance is curtailed, increased in price or cancelled all together, it will break the final tie that binds some employees to companies.  This may result in a more fluid workforce not tied or loyal to any company; the final straw.  We finally may actually see the freedom of supply and demand in the workforce as people begin to have more freedom to flow from company to company as market forces demand.  No more chains bound by health insurance (portability is not mandated - one of the few good things from ACA).  Now if insurance companies could freely compete across state lines without obscene regulations by corrupt state administrators, prices may actually become competitive!

More Free Agents may begin to surface, either by necessity (we have to survive somehow) or by desire to 'do your own thing'.  It will be an interesting few years starting in 2014!

Outlook grim for docs' ICD-10 readiness | Healthcare IT News

Outlook grim for docs' ICD-10 readiness | Healthcare IT News | Freedom and Politics | Scoop.it
Skip Stein's insight:

It's not just the ACA/Obamacare disaster.  CMS has created a real mess ever since instituting the HIPAA laws in 2001.  It has been a bloody disaster for the last years and these new mandates that are to be enacted (ICD-10) will complicate the already disastrous Obamacare.

THE ICD-10 are the 'codes' used to indicate a diagnosis and thus the reimbursement/payment in a healthcare claim (like for a broken tibia, etc.).  They are extremely detailed and complex over what is currently used (well not all States even use the current codes, but 'translate' them from others).

It is and will continue to be a mess!  You are MUCH better off changing your diet and lifestyle to Plant Based to avoid the need for all this medical crap!  Just Stay Healthy!
