The Obama Health Care Plan might work if a ton of  people die from the Swine Flu.  There won’t be as many people to strain the system when they are dead, and just imagine the windfall for the economy for those who survive after collecting the death tax.

In keeping with media’s bias and fear mongering, The Associated Press is reporting that, ” U.S. health officials say swine flu could strike up to 40 percent of Americans over the next two years and as many as several hundred thousand could die if a vaccine campaign and other measures aren’t successful.http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hjdCHrP82YTFser5vD6CzTK1az6wD99KT0NO2

The World Health Organization says as many as 2 billion people could become infected over the next two years — nearly one-third of the world population. The estimates look at potential impacts over a two-year period because past flu pandemics have occurred in waves over more than one year.

” The good news: Despite a brisk flu season in the Southern Hemisphere, the new swine flu is not yet mutating to become more dangerous, said Dr. Nancy Cox of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Cox said “it’s actually quite surprising” that the virus is showing so little genetic variation given its rapid spread. It has sickened more than a million people in the U.S. alone since April and circled the globe in a matter of weeks.”  http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx?articleId=489729&publicationSubCategoryId=200 

Vaccine manufacturers are claiming that they should have as many as 160 million doses of swine flu vaccine available sometime in October now that they have been given freedom from liability. The testing and injecting has already begun.   The article says “One bright spot: The U.S. has the world’s only nasal-spray flu vaccine, and maker announced Thursday that it’s producing plenty — so many millions of doses a month that it cannot keep up with putting them into the special sprayer required to use it.(emphasis mine) So MedImmune Inc. is working with the government to see if it can race out a different method for fall, simply dripping its swine flu vaccine into people’s noses.”

“A dropper instead of a sprayer works as well,” said MedImmune vice president Dr. Ben Machielse.   Wow- that the way to profit on a pandemic!

How is it they are already producing a nasal swine flu vaccine without any testing?  Roll up your sleeve or inhale  the Swine Flu? 

Might as well bend right over and take it in the a$$…

We usually feel better after apology but not this time.  According to the NY Times, “The Obama administration is signaling to Congress that the president could support taxing some employee health benefits, as several influential lawmakers and many economists favor, to help pay for overhauling the health care system.”  http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/15/us/politics/15health.html?_r=1

Yesterday, President Obama said, “It’s never as good as we say it is and it’s never as bad as we say it is. I’m very optimistic.”   Gee, that makes me feel better.  Obama has placed himself in a win/win with that comment and placed all of us in further jeopardy of being poor.  During the election Obama criticized McCain for even suggesting it- so instead, he is sending a message to Congress that if they will do it, he will sign it into law.  Throw in the proposed carbon tax and a tax for every mile driven and the working man or woman won’t see even half of his wages.

SodaHead’s blog writes, ” Doing the math, this would cost the average family receiving health insurance from their employers $2,000 or more in extra taxes per year. Kiss that $600 dollar tax cut good by.” http://www.sodahead.com/blog/49361/obama-plan-to-tax-your-health-care-how-does-that-grab-you/ .

What incentive is there to work when under O, soon most services will be free anyways?  Why should my doctor bust his ass on a Friday when it puts him into a higher tax bracket?  Schools around the nation are considering four day weeks, why not the rest of us?  “By extending school hours and eliminating a day of classes each week, education officials say they could save bus loads of money on transportation and utilities.” http://www.mercurynews.com/breakingnews/ci_11898035?nclick_check=1

Why not go to four days a week for all of us?  While I am pondering three day weekends, maybe we should move to the European style of vacations and work ethics.  In the 15 nations of the European Union, by law all full-time employees must be given a minimum of four weeks’ paid vacation per year; in Japan mandates 25 days a year, so unlike 127 other countries, the U.S. has no minimum paid-leave law.  We are the No Vacation Nation and are taxed so highly that half of us can’t afford to go on vacation anyways.  We work hard to give to our government.

Harvard Economist Juliet Shore wrote that we should hold jobs to a set number of hours per week, offer comp time for any overtime, and lower our living standards. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/046505434X.  Lower our living standards?  Ain’t that a kick in the ass, go to work and lower the standards for the American Dream!  Frig u.

Accepting lower standards is only half the problem.  The standards are so low, that it is now perceived to be okay to accept welfare and subsidized housing on a regular basis. Used to be I’d see folks in line at the grocery store embarrassed as they paid with food stamps, now they wave them in the air like they are a prize.  Accepting the standards of the welfare system should never be acceptable nor should the incentive to lower our standards ever be spat out.

I could envision a job interview where the employee says that they expect to work no more than 40 hours a week.  Laughable, because there are plenty of others who are willing to work twice as long for the same pay with or without vacation time. 

TAKE BACK YOUR TIME is a major U.S./Canadian initiative to challenge the epidemic of overwork, over-scheduling and time famine that now threatens our health, our families and relationships, our communities and our environment.  http://www.timeday.org/.  It isn’t my time that feels threatened at the moment, it is my wallet under Obama’s tax plans.

We really don’t have to worry about Take Back Your Time Day- October 24 with so many unemployed we have lots of vacation time, just no money and no incentives to look for work.  Even if you still have a job and take a paid vacation, you are taxed.  Oh, the poor travel industry. 

I think you even have to pay taxes on unemployment compensation.  Is there anything left that doesn’t have a tax?  The only thing I can think of is breathing and when that ends, there is a death tax.
