Obamacare did that..

Who woulda thunk that there would be rate hikes on health insurance caused by the stupidity of the progressive unicorn fart sniffing crowd that passed Obamacare so we could find what was in it? Well, some of us not only predicted this, but warned others this was the pan from the start:

Major insurers in some states are proposing hefty rate boosts for plans sold under the federal health law, setting the stage for an intense debate this summer over the law’s impact.

In New Mexico, market leader Health Care Service Corp. is asking for an average jump of 51.6% in premiums for 2016. The biggest insurer in Tennessee, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, has requested an average 36.3% increase. In Maryland, market leader CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield wants to raise rates 30.4% across its products.

And on and on. Because this thing wasn’t just flawed, but set up to fail and do exactly this to those of us that actually produce and pay for these things. Since Obamacare was passed, my rates have gone up over 30%. And I was not one of the people directly impacted by the individual mandate because I had an employer sponsored plan for which the marxists behind this debacle kept pushing out the date the rules would kick in for fear of the political damage it would cost. Well, the 2014 elections are done, and the chickens are coming home to roost.

And speaking of employers: my employer has done a lot of talking about how they will not stop offering healthcare because they care about employees. This much bloviating is a red flag to me. Too much effort when they could just not even bother. Someone in the industry will sooner than later drop company provided insurance, that’s because the penalty is cheaper than paying for the insurance, and every single company in the industry will follow suit because their competitiveness is impacted – by design, mind you – to dump everyone on the government rolls.

This thing was designed to destroy the worlds most effective and efficient healthcare system – based on the medical capability and access, and not on the bullshit stats progressives like to push such as who gets care at other people’s expense – so the left could pass a single payer system that would give them even more control over the life of the serfs under them. Of course, people that have already used other branches of the government to punish dissenters, political enemies, and anyone they feel disrespected them – from the IRS to the DOJ, or the EPA – would never decide to use healthcare as a weapon against their enemies when they control it.

The left will always resort to tyranny, because that’s the natural and logical conclusion of what they believe in always leads to. The over 100 million murdered and billions made to live in misery, in the name of social justice of all things, during the last century of progressive power has not served to dissuade low information, brain washed, mushy headed idiots from voting for the people preying on their jealousy and envy.

Don’t you know that we need to break a shit ton of eggs for this giant shit omelet they want to feed us, you evil individualist! Power to the nanny state! Get ready to pay a lot more, for less, and have to wait a long ass time to get whatever mediocre service you can get. And don’t you dare complain that you though they would bleed someone else to give the slackers more free shit in return for their votes. Sad to have to admit it, but the only reason I feel justice is happening is the army of idiots that pushed for this monstrosity and are now going to take it up the ass (not that there is anything wrong with that if you are into that).

It is only a failed presidency if you don’t understand the destruction is by design

Town Hall has a post up dealing with Obama’s failed presidency. Those of us that no longer remain in the dark know better. Obama has achieved a lot of what he set out to do, as he promised he would when he made the claim he would fundamentally transform America, but the problem is with the people that think he meant to improve things. To the left and Obama the only failure on their part was to not straddle us with even more destructive marxist bullshit. More fast growing debt, millions of illegals sucking at the government’s teat, millions of people unable to find work and forced to suck at the government’s tit, millions of people that have made sucking at the government’s teat their way of life, and the middle class under assault and driven to collapse by the government tax and regulatory burden, have all been bonuses to these fucking crooks. That’s the plan they had from the start, because they think we are all too stupid and in need of micro management.

Oh yeah, the LSM must be doing battlespace preparations for the coming elections as well, considering the number of articles telling us that lying is not a bad thing. Sure this is not really about politics, but this belief that lying is a good thing is part and parcel of the left’s modus operandi. Remember Obamacare? Shit, might as well say “remember the Obama presidency?”, because it has all been lies and criminal acts.

This “IS” how collectivism always plays out, idiots…

Surprisingly, in a parody I think most leftist, including the people at the WaPo, will miss, they have an article titled “Rare diary gives details of life under Khmer Rouge“, which describes the beautiful agrarian revolution brought to Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge. From the article:

Nearly 40 years ago, hunched on the floor of the wood-and-leaf hut he was forced to live in away from his children, Cambodian school inspector Poch Younly kept a secret diary vividly recounting the horrors of life under the Khmer Rouge, the radical communist regime whose extreme experiment in social engineering took the lives of 1.7 million Cambodians from overwork, medical neglect, starvation and execution.

First off, the Khmer Rouge wasn’t radical. That’s what communism really is. A despicable cult that dehumanizes all but the oligarchy or tyrant in charge, and makes the rest of the people slaves. It will always deliver misery and death, because that’s all it can. The fucking left might have replaced old time religion with their nanny state, but the role played by these governments, no matter how well intentioned at the start, end up making the place look like hell (on earth).

The Khmer Rouge were emptying Cambodia’s cities, marching millions of people into the countryside to work as manual laborers. Their aim was to create an agrarian communist utopia, but they were turning the Southeast Asian nation into a slave state.

This was done because this was their idea of “Social Justice”, the same shit progressives bandy about today to justify their acts of theft and depravity. What is unmentioned in the article is Pol Pot’s belief that anyone educated needed to be exterminated. Collectivism requires drones. Like ants or bees, the serfs are supposed to support the state, which is represented basically the oligarchy or tyrant in charge.

Be it hard core communism, China’s new version of it, any variant of socialism, or even the soft crony socialism hat has pissed the prosperity created by the very systems it so despises and seeks to eradicate, the left has straddled the west with these days, the end game will always be a state where a select few or single entity holds all power and privilege. The masses will be no better than slaves, living in misery and at the whim of their masters and the army of petty bureaucrats that enforce the will of the all powerful nanny state, whom all will remind the serfs of that at every opportunity, even as the dumb serfs are fed platitudes about their rights to free shit and how good they got it now that we have “Social Justice”.

This man was killed because he didn’t like what the state demanded of him. Have no doubt that today’s left, given the opportunity, would do exactly the same to all of us that now stand in their way of implementing those “Social Justice” measures we clearly see leading to more of the same. Collectivism is probably the most evil idea to ever be foisted on humanity. Past the family unit it becomes a coercive system that deprives man of dignity and purpose. Life is not fair, but beware those that promise they can redress that, for they will do far, far worse to us than any capricious entity or fate. My experience has been that the harder I work, the luckier I have gotten. And the envy of those that do not want to work hard, but expect to get where the hard workers are, by virtue of the fact they simply exist and are thus owed (a major pillar of collectivism), can always be counted on to drag down the productive. And it is always someone else’s fault that things don’t work out as promised, or that the nanny state resorts to force, coercion, lies, and murder to hide what it is doing or force compliance.

A dark age is coming again if we don’t end the direction these progressives are taking us in. Wait until the petty bureaucrat tells you there will be no medical treatment because you have not shown them or the state proper humility and gratitude. Or worse, because you are a non conformist and don’t like the “Brave new world” they have given us. That Second Amendment is going to be key to putting a stop to this slide into oblivion. Man were those old white men with wigs smart and prescient.

Another myth about “The Party of the Little People” getting busted?

And it is about time. People are wizening to the fact the people ripping them off the hardest are those that have been claiming, for decades, to be on their side and they are not happy. It is not a mistake that when progressives grab power, the policies they put into place to redress the wrongs they constantly harp about, actually do the exact opposite of what they tell everyone they want to do. The last few years, with democrats controlling the purse stings and calling all the shots, after their policies were instrumental in creating a crisis they then conveniently blamed only the other side for, have been disastrous for everyone but the connected and those voting for a living.

The number of poor and people out of work and/or sucking on the government teat has grown drastically to numbers that are staggering. Our economy has taken a beating of epic proportions – while the people that set the policies up that caused the damage and keep causing the damage pretend it is everyone else’s fault- and looks to only get worse. Real unemployment numbers are hidden by a formula that discounts those that no longer get assistance or can’t find any work but part time work, and the numbers of people unable to find jobs or improve their existing conditions keep rising. Our healthcare system has been taken over by government, and from the looks of how government does things, we are all about to pay far, far more, for far, far less quality, access, or care. all while slamming both economic productivity and opportunity for all people. The middle class is under assault from a welfare state that punishes anyone that decides to engage in a responsible and grown up way, while rewarding every sort of dysfunction and of instant gratification. And anyone that tries to bring these things to light, defies them, or stands in their way, risks brutal retaliation from these members of the “Party of the little People”.

The lies that democrats, which claim to be just one of the normal people, but are anything but, are unraveling finally. If you want to get rich, you go into government. If you want to get stinking rich, get to fuck over people, and keep pretending you are just a little guy or care for the little guy while living like kings, you go into government as a democrat. Like communism, which promised the common man equality and opportunity previously denied, but then delivered him to unbelievable misery under a new and crueler set of masters, the progressive movement can only deliver more of the same. Nobody beats the democrats at abuse of power, corruption, and criminal activity. I think that for anyone that isn’t blinded by partisan politics the revelations of the current administration’s incessant criminality all but puts that debate to rest. But the believers want to believe, and nothing will dissuade them, even as the future with the left in charge is playing out on a micro scale for all to see.

So, queue in the Clintons and their recent defense of their wealthy and cushy life. This will be the Obamas in a few years. These are the great defenders of the common man. Now if only the idiots that suck these people’s dicks and ask for seconds could wizen up. We might yet have a chance to stave off the coming apocalypse caused by decades of these people “helping the little guy”. Beware the do-gooder, for they are usually charlatans, and be doubly weary of the true believer, because these type of fanatics are those that will bring the most misery thinking they are doing something righteous.

An idea I am behind..

The next big bubble that will burst, if the wholehousing market or government money printing & incessant borrowing leftist agenda, and forced anti-savings money policies, which the Europeans have adopted, doesn’t blow up on us yet again, will be the student loan bubble. There is another $1.2 trillion of tax payer liability, waiting to blow up as the economic policies of the nanny staters create even more unemployment for the people leaving college with massive debts. And when it goes, you can bet that it will be those of us that bailed the government, their friends and donors in the “Too big to fail” industries, and are now paying for the democrats to buy enough votes to give them more than even odds at retaining power and causing more misery for us all, that will foot the bill for that too.

So you can see why I live the idea of having colleges be partially responsible for giving out student loans. It would both act as a deterrent on the faster-than-inflation rise in higher education costs, and the idiotic admission policies that have turned everything but the hard science and engineering schools of practically all universities and colleges into indoctrination camps for the lefts idiotic ideas. That’s probably why nobody on the left would ever want to put a policy like this in place either, but it would definitely address the problems affecting the higher education establishment, and our country as a whole, all at once.

If a college or university lets an under qualified high risk of failure applicant in, usually over better qualified ones, and they fail, then having to pony up lets say 60% of what that student owes will act as the best deterrent against these stupid policies. Similarly, letting students attend college for a fortune to learn skills that will not qualify them to do anything but flip burgers, will wipe out all these fringe and useless degrees people pay an arm and a leg for, usually so they can party hard for however many years it takes to get a degree these years. I am sure the fluff schools, where most of the leftist indoctrination and monolithic thinking goes on these days, wouldn’t want something like this, ever. It would be the end of their goose that laid the golden egg era.

So, yeah none of the academic institutions now profiting of the incestuous relationships between the government mandated loans and their institutions, and even the leftists in government, would suffer from such a move, but the students and the tax payers that foot the bills when the students default, currently screwed over by these institutions and their buddies in government that like the deal because they get a lot of leftist indoctrinated drones that will vote for them, sure would.

Maybe that’s precisely why we will not get it ever. Right now the progtards are getting the best of all worlds in this exchange. The left has too much to lose, and they love doing things that make them rich and powerful, as long as they don’t have to foot the bill themselves.
