John Huntsman

Jon Meade Huntsman, Sr. (born 1937 in Blackfoot, Idaho) is an American businessman and philanthropist. He is the founder of Huntsman Corporation. Huntsman is a member of the Forbes 400, where he is currently ranked the 47th richest man alive. He is the father of current United States Ambassador to China and former Governor of Utah Jon Huntsman Jr.

Jon Huntsman grew up in poverty, but went on to attend the University of Pennsylvania. There he majored in business at the Wharton School. His alma mater would later name one of the school’s signature buildings, Huntsman Hall, in his honor. An interdisciplinary dual-degree program melding international relations and business, taught through the College of Arts & Sciences and Wharton School, also bears Huntsman’s name.

Huntsman worked for Dow Chemical Company then as a staff member in the Nixon administration and before starting his own business in 1971 Huntsman Container. Huntsman served as Mission President for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Washington DC from 1981 to 1983. He then founded Huntsman Chemical, which grew into a multi-billion dollar company. In 2001, Huntsman announced that his companies could not make their interests on junk bonds.[1] In 2007, Huntsman co-founded a new private equity firm, Huntsman Gay Global Capital, joining former Bain Capital executive Robert C. Gay to focus on investments in middle market companies. Among Huntsman’s partners is Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young.

Huntsman has been an important donor to several causes, both locally in Utah and nationally. One of his most notable causes is his co-founding of the Huntsman Cancer Institute. His namesake HCI building holds this quote “Selfless giving unto others represents one’s true wealth.” Time Magazine identified Huntsman as the sixth largest philanthropist in the United States in 2000.[2] In 2007, Huntsman gave $750 million in contributions and donations, placing him second on The Chronicle of Philanthropy’s list of the nation’s top 50 givers.

Other notable causes include: his co-operative fundraising initiatives for his fraternity, Sigma Chi; the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, which named its main building after him; the University of Utah, which named its main arena after him; a new law library at Brigham Young University, which at his request was named after Howard W. Hunter; notable family philanthropy in earthquake ravaged Armenia and a new library at Southern Utah University, which he also requested be named after someone else (retiring SUU President Gerald R. Sherratt); and recently the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University. In December 2007, Utah State University announced that its College of Business would be re-named “The Jon M. Huntsman School of Business,” in recognition of a gift from Jon and Karen Huntsman of $25 million—the largest in the university’s history. …”

Declaration of Independence

 

(Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776)

The Unanimous Declaration
of the Thirteen United States of America

// //

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. –Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing taxes on us without our consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:

// //

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:

For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.

We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

United States Declaration of Independence

“…The United States Declaration of Independence is a statement adopted by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which announced that the thirteen American colonies then at war with Great Britain were now independent states, and thus no longer a part of the British Empire. Written primarily by Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration is a formal explanation of why Congress had voted on July 2 to declare independence from Great Britain, more than a year after the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War. The birthday of the United States of America—Independence Day—is celebrated on July 4, the day the wording of the Declaration was approved by Congress.

After finalizing the text on July 4, Congress issued the Declaration of Independence in several forms. It was initially published as a printed broadside that was widely distributed and read to the public. The most famous version of the Declaration, a signed copy that is usually regarded as the Declaration of Independence, is on display at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. Although the wording of the Declaration was approved on July 4, the date of its actual signing is disputed by historians, most accepting a theory that it was signed nearly a month after its adoption, on August 2, 1776, and not on July 4 as is commonly believed.

The sources and interpretation of the Declaration have been the subject of much scholarly inquiry. The Declaration justified the independence of the United States by listing colonial grievances against King George III, and by asserting certain natural rights, including a right of revolution. Having served its original purpose in announcing independence, the text of the Declaration was initially ignored after the American Revolution. Its stature grew over the years, particularly the second sentence, a sweeping statement of human rights:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

This sentence has been called “one of the best-known sentences in the English language”[2] and “the most potent and consequential words in American history”.[3] The passage has often been used to promote the rights of marginalized groups, and came to represent for many people a moral standard for which the United States should strive. This view was greatly influenced by Abraham Lincoln, who considered the Declaration to be the foundation of his political philosophy,[4] and promoted the idea that the Declaration is a statement of principles through which the United States Constitution should be interpreted. …”

Iranians Take Over Iraqi Oil Well and Dismiss US Nuclear Deal–Call Obama’s Bluff–Obama’s Response–Absolutely Nothing

Iranian forces take over Iraq oil well

“…NASIRIYAH, Iraq (AFP) – Iranian forces took control of a southern Iraqi oil well on a disputed section of the border on Friday, US and Iraqi officials told AFP.

“There has been no violence related to this incident and we trust this will be resolved through peaceful diplomacy between the governments of Iraq and Iran,” a US military spokesman told AFP at Contingency Operating Base Adder, just outside the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah.

“The oil field is in disputed territory in between Iranian and Iraqi border forts,” he said, adding that such incidents occur quite frequently.

An official of the state-owned South Oil Co in the southeastern city of Amara, and west of the field, said: “An Iranian force arrived at the field early this morning (Friday).

“It took control of Well 4 and raised the Iranian flag even though the well lies in Iraqi territory,” the official added. …”

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20091218/wl_afp/iraqiranoilborder_20091218153543

At first those Iranians opposing the Iranian regime said that Obama was with them.

Now these same Iranians are saying, Obama is with them, the current Iranian regime.

The silence of the Obama administration in its support of the vast majority of the Iranians who oppose the Iranian regime is more than deafening, it is appeasement to evil that is leading to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iranians.

The same Iranian regime will shortly have one or more nuclear weapons that it will use. The primary target is Israel.

Yet the Obama administration dithers.

The time has come first to vigorously support those Iranians who oppose the Iranian regime.

Next, both the United States and Israel need to coordinate an attack that destroys both the nuclear weapons facilities, command and control and radar facilities and the leadership and supporters of the Iranian regime.

This needs to happen starting now.

Will it happen?

Based on Obama’s lack of leadership and delusion that talking with evil gets results, I seriously doubt it.

As a result, Israel will have no other choice but to destroy the nuclear facilites on it own.

Unfortunately, this is a very difficult mission given the distances to the targets and the Israeli Air Force lack of long range tankers and bunker busting bombs that the United States has refused to sell to the IAF.

Should the regime continue it delaying tactics and have both nuclear weapons and missiles that it uses against Israel, World War III will break out in the Middle East.

Israel will not hestitate to utterly destroy the military capability of Iran with both conventional and nuclear weapons and will eliminate the current regime and the mullahs responsible for building and launching these weapons.

Iran will attack both Israel and the United States as well as any nation in the Middle East allied with the United States.

It should not be forgoten that the current Iranian regime has been at war with the United States over thirty years primarily by using proxies to attack US military forces.

Nero fiddled as Rome burned.

Obama reads from his teleprompter as Iran goes nuclear and violently suppresses the dissent of the Iranian people.

Obama is a reader not a leader.

Obama is a paper tiger.

Obama has been tested.

Obama failed the test.

The Iranian regime knows this and took over an Iraqi oil well. 

“The Obama administration’s talks with Iran—set to take place tomorrow in Geneva—are accompanied by an almost universally accepted misconception: that previous American administrations refused to negotiate with Iranian leaders. The truth, as Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said last October at the National Defense University, is that “every administration since 1979 has reached out to the Iranians in one way or another and all have failed.”

~Michael Ledeen

“…Iran has now rejected a year-end deadline to comply with a UN plan to end the deadlock over the Islamic country’s nuclear program. But U.S. voters strongly believe the United Nations hasn’t been tough enough with Iran.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 67% of voters say the UN has not been aggressive enough in response to Iran’s nuclear program. Just five percent (5%) say the international organization has been too aggressive, and 19% think the amount of pressure has been about right.

In late September, 51% said President Obama was not tough enough responding to Iran’s nuclear efforts. …”

Ahmadinejad dismisses US deadline for nuclear deal

By NASSER KARIMI 

“…Iran’s president on Tuesday dismissed a year-end deadline set by the Obama administration and the West for Tehran to accept a U.N.-drafted deal to swap enriched uranium for nuclear fuel. The United States warned Iran to take the deadline seriously.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also accused the U.S. of fabricating a purported Iranian secret document that appears to lay out a plan for developing a critical component of an atomic bomb.

Ahmadinejad’s remarks underscored Tehran’s defiance in the nuclear standoff – and also sought to send a message that his government has not been weakened by the protest movement sparked by June’s disputed presidential election. He spoke a day after the latest opposition protest by tens of thousands mourning a dissident cleric who died over the weekend. …”

Iranian Women Declare War Against the Mullahs, by Manda Zand-Ervin and Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi

“…Since the establishment of the Islamic government in Iran in 1979, women have counted as one-half of a man. They do not get the custody of their children. They do not have the choice in their clothing, residence, leaving the house, working, education or traveling without the permission of their husband. The age at which girls are allowed to marry is nine. Men can divorce the women at any time they wish and can marry several wives in addition to them. Girls inherit one-half of that which boys do and so on.

State-owned press reports that in Tehran, 120 women have been hung in public in the first five months of the Iranian year; that suicide among the women of Iran has been the highest in world history.

The young generation of Iranian women has again declared war against the Mullahs of Iran, but this time the power of government is against them. The paramilitary forces of the Islamic regime make it impossible for the women to protest against their inhumane laws. There are home invasions and early morning arrests of the women activists at all times. Zahra Kazemi, a photojournalist, was one of the many women who was beaten, tortured and finally killed under torture in Tehran’s Evin prison, all because she was taking photos of the families of political prisoners who had gathered for their loved ones in front of that very prison. Sixteen-year-old Atefeh Rajabi was hung in public because she was falsely accused by a Mullah of having “relations” with a man. And these are just a tiny account of the plight of women in Iran.

A group of women attempted to establish a political party. They have been in the 209 — solitary — section of the dreaded Evin prison for the last nine months. …”

Ahmadinejad has denied role inembassy seizure, abuse of Americans

“…The Russian publication Kommersant has published a newly located photograph of a U.S. hostage-taker in Iran circa 1979 bearing a striking resemblance to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The Iranian leader has steadfastly denied he was involved in the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and the holding of 52 Americans for 444 days despite assertions to the contrary of some of those hostages and former Iranian President Abholhassan Bani-Sadr, who says he was a ringleader and the liaison with Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. …”

Senate Dems reach 60 vote threshold on health bill

 By DAVID ESPO AND RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR (AP)

“…Nelson, D-Neb., said Saturday he made his decision after winning fresh concessions to limit the availability of abortions in insurance sold in newly created exchanges, as well as tens of million in federal Medicaid funds for his home state.  

“I know this is hard for some of my colleagues to accept and I appreciate their right to disagree,” he said at a news conference in the Capitol, referring to the abortion issue. “But I would not have voted for this bill without these provisions.”  

He also noted he had successfully fended off attempts to provide for a government-run insurance option to compete with private insurers.  

The Congressional Budget Office estimated the revised measure would lower deficits by $132 billion over a decade, with the possibility of much higher reductions in the subsequent decade.  

At the White House, Obama cited those numbers in hailing the legislation as “the largest deficit reduction plan in a decade.” In a brief statement, the president also said the country is “on the cusp of making health care reform a reality.”  

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091219/ap_on_bi_ge/us_health_care_overhaul 

  

The only way to control health care costs is to increase competition in the health insurance and provider markets and empower individuals to chose affordable, portable, and individual insurance plans that meet their needs.  

Markets work, government monopolies do not.  

Medicare is going broke and doctors refuse to see Medicaid patients. 

Social Security+Medicare Projections

   

  

The Federal Government refuses to pay their bills and shift cost to those with private medical insurance.  

Government health care will lead to even higher medical costs.  

The American people will revolt over this bill once they learn what is in it.  

Once the American people find out that they will be required or forced to buy a government mandated health insurance plan from an insurance company  that is very expensive because it is community rate and must take all people who apply, President Obama will lose the youth vote and white vote for good. 

If you do not buy the forced mandated government approved health insurance plan, you will be fined by the IRS. 

Instead of consumer sovereignty or the freedom to choose what you buy with your hard-earned money, the Federal Government will dictate what you must buy–a very expensive community rated health insurance plan from a large insurance company. 

This will lead to the eventual elimination of individual high deductible health plans  (HDHP) that are combined with a Health Saving Plan (HSA) that are very popular with the American people because they are both affordable, portable and enables them to control their health care costs. 

Health Savings Accounts – Part 2 – HDHP Insurance

  

John Stossel – Insurance, Health Care, Government, and Rising Prices

If you do not buy health insurance plan, you will be fined by the IRS and the money taken out of your checking account or other assets. 

This health care bill is tyrannical, unconstitutional, and un-American. 

How dare they? 

They did it in Massachusetts and this is the result: 

Don’t Want Health Insurance? It’ll Cost You

  

The progressive radical socialist Democratic Party have already lost the conservative and libertarian, independent, and those on Medicare that comprise over 80% of the voters.  

This is indeed committing political suicide for the simple reason that the core political base of the Democratic party consisting of blacks and liberals/progressives which make up 20% of voters.  

Thank you progressive radical socialists of the Democrat Party for committing political suicide.  

There will be day of reckoning.  

In six years the progressive radical socialist Democratic Party will be a very small minority party consisting of progressive radial socialists that at most comprise 20% of the American electorate.  

The words hubris and marginalized would be a fair description of the Democratic Party.  

The irony is that if the reader President Obama has shown some leadership he could have easily obtained a health care reform bill that would have received over 90 votes in the Senate and 400 in the House by building a consensus bill that has the support of the American people.  

Instead his fatal conceit and unconstrained progressive radical socialist vision lead him down the road to serfdom and the end of his presidency.  

Mr. President you are now a lame duck and a marked man for selling out to the special interests including the large insurance companies, drug companies, unions, and the personal injury trail lawyers–you’re a hypocrite, phony and disgrace–a reader not a leader–little hope and change few want. 

You have lost the trust and confidence of the American people who by a vast majority do not support this unconstitutional health care reform bill.  

Congratulations Mr. President, the conservatives, libertarians, independents, those on Medicare, Republicans, Reagan Democrats and soon the young will be working passionately  for your defeat and the defeat of the progressive radical socialists in the Democratic Party in 2010, 2012, and 2016.  

“It is one of the saddest spectacles of our time to see a great democratic movement support a policy which must lead to the destruction of democracy and which meanwhile can benefit only a minority of the masses who support it. Yet it is this support from the Left of the tendencies toward monopoly which make them irresistible and the prospects of the future so dark. So long as labor continues to assist in the destruction of the only order under which at least some degree of independence and freedom has been secured to every worker, there is indeed little hope for the future. The labor leader who now proclaim so loudly that they have “done once and for all with the mad competitive system” are proclaiming the doom of the freedom of the individual. …”

The Health Bill Is Scary

Tom Coburn

“… My 25 years as a practicing physician have shown me what happens when government attempts to practice medicine: Doctors respond to government coercion instead of patient cues, and patients die prematurely. Even if the public option is eliminated from the bill, these onerous rationing provisions will remain intact. 

 

For instance, the Reid bill (in sections 3403 and 2021) explicitly empowers Medicare to deny treatment based on cost. An Independent Medicare Advisory Board created by the bill—composed of permanent, unelected and, therefore, unaccountable members—will greatly expand the rationing practices that already occur in the program. Medicare, for example, has limited cancer patients’ access to Epogen, a costly but vital drug that stimulates red blood cell production. It has limited the use of virtual, and safer, colonoscopies due to cost concerns. And Medicare refuses medical claims at twice the rate of the largest private insurers. 

Section 6301 of the Reid bill creates new comparative effectiveness research (CER) programs. CER panels have been used as rationing commissions in other countries such as the U.K., where 15,000 cancer patients die prematurely every year according to the National Cancer Intelligence Network. CER panels here could effectively dictate coverage options and ration care for plans that participate in the state insurance exchanges created by the bill. 

Additionally, the Reid bill depends on the recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force in no fewer than 14 places. This task force was responsible for advising women under 50 to not undergo annual mammograms. The administration claims the task force recommendations do not carry the force of law, but the Reid bill itself contradicts them in section 2713. The bill explicitly states, on page 17, that health insurance plans “shall provide coverage for” services approved by the task force. This chilling provision represents the government stepping between doctors and patients. When the government asserts the power to provide care, it also asserts the power to deny care. …”

High-Decuctible Health Plan

“…A high-deductible health plan (HDHP) is a health insurance plan with lower premiums and higher deductibles than a traditional health plan. 

As related to health savings accounts

Participating in a “qualified” HDHP is a requirement for health savings accounts and other tax-advantaged programs. In this context, HDHPs are plans with a minimum deductible of $1,150 for self and $2,300 for self-and-family coverage. The maximum amount out-of-pocket limits for HDHPs is $5,800 for self and $11,600 for self-and-family enrollment. The Internal Revenue Service released the 2010 amounts on May 15, 2009 via Revenue Procedure (Rev. Proc.) 2009-29, which will be modified each year to reflect the change in cost of living.

Year Minimum deductible (single) Minimum deductible (family) Maximum out-of-pocket (single) Maximum out-of-pocket (family)
2005 $1,000 $2,000 $5,100 $10,200
2006 $1,050 $2,100 $5,250 $10,500
2007 $1,100 $2,200 $5,500 $11,000
2008 $1,100 $2,200 $5,600 $11,200
2009 $1,150 $2,300 $5,800 $11,600
2010 $1,200 $2,400 $5,950 $11,900

  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-deductible_health_plan 

  

Health Savings Accounts

“…A health savings account (HSA), is a tax-advantaged medical savings account available to taxpayers in the United States who are enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). The funds contributed to the account are not subject to federal income tax at the time of deposit. Unlike a flexible spending account (FSA), funds roll over and accumulate year to year if not spent. HSAs are owned by the individual, which differentiates them from the company-owned Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) that is an alternate tax-deductible source of funds paired with HDHPs. Funds may be used to pay for qualified medical expenses at any time without federal tax liability. Withdrawals for non-medical expenses are treated very similarly to those in an IRA in that they may provide tax advantages if taken after retirement age, and they incur penalties if taken earlier. These accounts are a component of consumer driven health care. 

Proponents of HSAs believe that they are an important reform that will help reduce the growth of health care costs and increase the efficiency of the health care system. According to proponents, HSAs encourage saving for future health care expenses, allow the patient to receive needed care without a gate keeper to determine what benefits are allowed and make consumers more responsible for their own health care choices through the required High-Deductible Health Plan. 

Opponents of HSAs say they worsen, rather than improve, the U.S. health system’s problems because people who are healthy will leave insurance plans while people who have health problems will avoid HSAs. There is also debate about consumer satisfaction with these plans. …” 

“…Deposits to an HSA may be made by any policyholder of an HSA-eligible high-deductible health plan or by their employer, or any other person. If an employer makes deposits to such a plan on behalf of its employees, non-discrimination rules still apply — that is, all employees must be treated equally. However, if contributions are made through a Section 125 plan, non-discrimination rules do not apply. Employers may treat full-time and part-time employees differently, and employers may treat individual and family participants differently. (The treatment of employees who are not enrolled in a HSA-eligible high-deductible plan is not considered for non-discrimination purposes.) Also, for 2007, employers may contribute more for non-highly compensated employees than highly compensated employees. 

Contributions from an employer or employee may be made on a pre-tax basis through an employer. If this option is not available through the employer, contributions may be made on a post-tax basis and then used to decrease gross taxable income on the following year’s Form 1040. The main advantage of making pre-tax contributions is the FICA and Medicare Tax deduction, which amounts to a savings of 7.65% each to the employer and employee. The self-employed must pay self-employment tax on their contributions. Regardless of the method or tax savings associated with the deposit, the deposits may only be made for persons covered under an HSA-eligible high-deductible plan, with no other coverage beyond certain qualified additional coverage. 

Initially, the annual maximum deposit to an HSA was the lesser of the actual deductible or specified IRS limits. Congress later abolished the limit based on the deductible and set statutory limits for maximum contributions. For example, the 2008 statutory limits are $2,900 individual and $5,800 family. 

A catch-up provision also applies for plan participants who are age 55 or over, allowing the IRS limit to be increased.Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag.[7] 

There are several ways that funds in an HSA can be withdrawn. Some HSAs include a debit card, some supply checks for account holder use, and some allow for a reimbursement process similar to medical insurance. Most HSAs have more than one possible method for withdrawal. The exact method of withdrawal varies from HSA to HSA and can be considered a marketing design issue. Checks and debits do not have to be made payable to the provider. Funds can be withdrawn for any reason, but withdrawals that are not for documented qualified medical expenses are subject to income taxes and a 10% penalty. The 10% tax penalty is waived for persons who have reached the age of 65 or have become disabled at the time of the withdrawal. Then, only income tax is paid on the withdrawal, and in effect the account has grown tax deferred (similar to an IRA). Medical expenses continue to be tax free. 

Account holders are required to retain documentation for their qualified medical expenses. Failure to retain and provide documentation could cause the IRS to rule withdrawals were not for qualified medical expenses and subject the taxpayer to additional penalties.[8] 

When a person dies, the funds in their HSA are transferred to the beneficiary named for the account. If the beneficiary is a surviving spouse, the transfer is tax-free. …”

“The tradegy of collectivist thought is that, while it starts out to make reason supreme, it ends by destroying reason because it misconceives the process on which the growth of reason depends. It may indeed be said that it is the paradox of all collectivist doctrine and its demand for “conscious” control or “conscious” planning that they necessarily lead to the demand that the mind of some individual should rule supreme–while only the individualist approach to social phenomena makes us recognize the superindividual forces which guide the growth of reason. Individualism is thus an attitude of humility before this social process and of tolerance to other opinions and is the exact opposite of that intellectual hubris which is at the root of the demand for comprehensive direction of the social process.

“Once you admit that the individual is merely a means to serve the ends of the higher entity called society or the nation, most of those features of totalitarian regimes which horrify us follow of necessity. From the collectivist standpoint intollerance and brutal suppression of dissent, the complete disregard of the life and happiness of the individual, are essential and unavoidable consequences of this basic premise, and the collectivist can admit this and at the same time claim that his system is superior to one in which the “slefish” interests of the individuals are allowed to obstruct the full realization of the ends the community pursues. …”

“…Freedom arises from the multiplicity of sects, which prevades America and which is the best and only security for religious liberty in any society. For where there is such a variety of sects, there cannot be a majority of any one sect to oppress and persecute the rest. “

~James Madison, spoken at the Virginia convention on ratifying the Constitution, June 1778

The American people made a big mistake when they elected Barack Obama to the office of President of the United States of America.

The American people must correct their big mistake by opposing his policies and proposed bills on health care, cap and trade energy tax, comprehensive immigration reform, and government spending, deficits, bailouts, stimulus packages, subsidies and regulations.

The American people must educate themselves about the progressive radical socialist Democratic Party led by Barack Obama and oppose their agenda for America.

Your life and soul may depend upon it.

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.

Obama’s ‘Christian Nation’

By Monte Kuligowski

“…In full context of Obama’s statements made in Turkey on April 7, the President did at least acknowledge the following:

 

I think that where — where there’s the most promise of building stronger U.S.-Turkish relations is in the recognition that Turkey and the United States can build a model partnership in which a predominantly Christian nation and a predominantly Muslim nation, a Western nation and a nation that straddles two continents — that we can create a modern international community that is respectful, that is secure, that is prosperous; that there are not tensions, inevitable tensions, between cultures, which I think is extraordinarily important.

 

By referring to America as a “predominantly Christian nation” Obama is speaking in terms of population, not of the religion’s influence on national morality, policy and law. America is populated primarily by Christians. In that sense Obama is correct.

 

Sad to say, Obama is also correct in stating that we are no longer a Christian nation. I argue that we are a country divided and that two principal nations currently coexist within the same country. Those two dueling nations have irreconcilable differences on the big questions of life and fundamentally consist of left versus right.

 

I understand that the word “nation” is used interchangeably with the word “country,” but at its core nation means a group a people united by a common faith, morality, set of customs and traditions and language. In the fundamental meaning of nation, we once were a nation which operated from a system of Judeo-Christian morality — that is, a common faith provided the basis for right and wrong.

 

That historical fact, Obama refuses to acknowledge. Obama’s words, “Whatever we once were,” seem to imply that what we once were is not important or perhaps that one cannot objectively determine what we once were. Either way, Obama’s lack of basic understanding of American liberty is highlighted.

 

Additionally, Obama is inaccurate to say that currently we are a Muslim nation, a Hindu nation, a Buddhist nation, etc. Approximately 76 percent of adult Americans identify themselves as Christians. Historically, countries don’t do well consisting as a collection of mini nations; unless, of course, a strongman rises up to provide forced order and peace. …”

Stupid Silly Socialist Summit Speech on Climate Change–President Obama–The Joker

President Obama’s Speech To The Climate Change Summit Copenhagen

US Republicans talk climate at COP15

Glenn Beck Show – December 18, 2009 – Pt 4 of 7

 

Copenhagen Climate Summit ‘between breakdown and progress’

LOL

Barack Obama is the Biggest Failure Since New Coke…

 

The vast majority of the American people think that man-made climate change is scam of the political elites, mainly progressive radical socialist to increase their taxes with a hidden cap and trade energy tax on goods and services that use energy in their manufacture and distribution.

The American people will not allow any politician of any party to pass these taxes or sign any treaty that cripples the United States economy.

Take your junk science climate computer models and put them where the sun does not rise.

President Obama sounds like a complete and utter fool.

In another six months President Obama will be a lame duck President.

More than 60% of the American people identify themselves as conservatives and libertarians and they are not buying this man-made climate change junk science of computer climate models that disagree with empirical temperature data from satelites.

The bottom line–go take a hike Mr. President.

You are a liar and con man and  full of it.

No sale.

Also, the progressive radical socialist can forget about a value added tax to replace the failed cap and trade energy tax bill.

If you want to broaden the tax base, the American people will support the FairTax, a national sales consumption tax provided it replaces all Federal income, payroll, capital gains, alternative minimum, estate and gift taxes and has prebates for necessities.

I seriously doubt Presient Obama possesses either the wisdom or courage to support such tax reform.

Over  25,000,000 Americans are seeking full time jobs today.

Any politician who favors a new tax increase in the middle of the Obama Depression such as the hidden cap and trade energy tax will be defeated next November.

Construct 500 new nuclear power plants over the next 40 years and by 2050 all of the electricity in the United State would be produced by nuclear power instead of coal and natural gas powered electrical plants. This would create jobs, wealth and economic growth and make the United States a leader in this technology for export abroad.

Build 2 nuclear power plants in each state over the next ten years and the United States will be on its way to energy indepenedence.

 Call it Obama Green Power–just do it.

Start building nuclear power plants now instead of wasting time and money on natural caused climate change that man can do next to nothing about–get serious Mr. President–show some leadership for a change.

Empower America–go nuclear!

Climate change is natural and will continue to change irrespective of what man does or does not do.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to seek more money from taxpayers

Trever Bierschbach

“…When the bailout was proposed taxpayers were promised that they would not lose a dime on Freddie and Fannie.  Since then Fannie Mae has lost $120.5 billion, while Freddie Mac has lost just about $68 billion in the past nine quarters.  All of these losses are in spite of the government’s backing of the companies, new regulations to help prevent future losses, and the $400B lifeline, and now they want more.

While these two mortgage giants bleed off money, and feed off taxpayers, the government continues to push them to offer more loans, and restructure existing loans that are in jeopardy.  Opponents wonder at the lack of common sense involved in all of this, but supporters continue to uphold the idea that Freddie and Fannie are crucial to the President’s housing relief plan. …”

http://www.examiner.com/x-32743-Tazewell-County-Conservative-Examiner~y2009m12d18-Fannie-Mae-and-Freddie-Mac-to-seek-more-money-from-taxpayers

“…Bloomberg is reporting that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s regulator is renegotiating the terms of the housing agencies’ financial rescue with the Treasury Department. According to unnamed people “familiar with the talks,” this renegotiation could include increasing the size of the agencies’ $400 billion lifeline—so far, Fannie Mae has tapped $60.9 billion and Freddie Mac $50.7 billion—and possibly cutting the dividends the agencies pay to Treasury on the borrowed money.

The Progressive Radical Socialist are trying to force the American people to purchase a Health Insurance plan from either an insurance company or government entity–the public option.

Furthermore, they want you to pay for this plan for four years before you obtain any benefits of the plan!

If you do not pay, the IRS will fine you and take the money out of your checking account.

Yes, the Progressive Radical Socialist health care reform bill is both unconstitutional and unamerican.

The American people do not want Obamacare or socialized medicine.

The American people want smaller government with lower taxes, fewer regulations, and fewer government services.

The American people are pushing back and will not be nudged or ignored by the political elites in Washington, D. C.

Time for a new conservative and libertarian political party–American Citizens Alliance Party–ACAP–a cap on government spending, deficits, debt, bailouts, regulations, subsidies and taxes.

Conservatives and libertarian represents over 60% of the American electorate.

Run a principled conservative and libertarian for office and they should win every time.

Run as a progressive radical socialist and you will lose.

Throw the bums out of Congress, Senate, and White House.

The Battleground Poll and the Battle for America

By Bruce Walker

“…The Battleground Poll reveals the internals of its poll. It also asks respondents the same demographic questions in each poll:  What is your education level?  What is your age?  What is your religious affiliation?  What is your marital status?  Question D3 asks respondents to describe their ideology.  The choices are “very conservative,” “somewhat conservative,” “moderate,” “somewhat liberal,” “very liberal,” and “unsure/refused.”  Those asked by the Battleground Poll — if they dislike the liberal label — can call themselves moderates,  they can refuse to answer, and  they can express an uncertainty about their ideology.   Only those certain of their ideology and willing to label themselves are considered conservative in the poll.

The Battleground Poll is not a Republican polling organization.  It is, rather, one of the few bipartisan polling organizations.  Republican and Democrat pollsters agree on the language of the questions for respondents, so that the questions asked are not only fairly worded, but unusually fairly worded.  Republican and Democrat pollsters agree on the population sample, so that polls results are not skewed because too many Democrats, too many Republicans, or too many independents are included.  The Battleground Poll also has proven very accurate over many elections.

 

The responses to Question D3 have been remarkably consistent.  Respondents have changed dramatically about what they thought of President Bush or of the state of the economy or the most important issues facing our nation.  Respondent may swing quite a bit about which party they support or trust the most.  But in one single area of this long list of polling data, the American people have not wavered at all from Battleground Poll to Battleground Poll:  About sixty percent of the American people, in poll after poll, year after year, describe themselves as “conservative.”

 

On December 16, 2009, Battleground released its latest poll.  In this poll, 63% of the American people described themselves as “very conservative” or “somewhat conservative.”  The rest of America – not just liberals, but moderates and people who were unsure about their ideology or chose not to respond to that question, totaled, collectively, only 37% of America.  A measly one percent of Americans called themselves moderates; 25% of Americans called themselves “somewhat liberal,” and 8% of Americans called themselves “very liberal.”  …”

America’s Best Days
66% Favor Smaller Government With Fewer Services, Lower Taxes

“…Sixty-six percent (66%) of U.S. voters prefer a smaller government with fewer services and lower taxes over a more active government with more services and higher taxes.

That’s the second highest finding of the year: In August at the height of the congressional town hall controversies over the health care plan, 70% felt that way.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 22% prefer a government with more services and higher taxes. Eleven percent (11%) aren’t sure which is best.

Eighty-eight percent (88%) of Republicans and 63% of voters not affiliated with either major party like a smaller government better. Democrats are more narrowly divided: 51% favor a smaller government, but 37% opt for a larger, more activist government.

Sixty-five percent (65%) of liberals chose a government with more services and higher taxes. Eighty-six percent (86%) of conservatives think a smaller government is better.

Sixty-two percent (62%) of all voters say tax cuts are a better way than more government spending to create jobs and fight unemployment. Only 21% say additional stimulus spending is a more effective tool.

Voters overwhelmingly believe that the bigger problem in the United States is the unwillingness of politicians to control government spending rather than voters’ unwillingness to pay enough in taxes. …”

Tea Party Tops GOP on Three-Way Generic Ballot

“…Running under the Tea Party brand may be better in congressional races than being a Republican.

In a three-way Generic Ballot test, the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds Democrats attracting 36% of the vote. The Tea Party candidate picks up 23%, and Republicans finish third at 18%. Another 22% are undecided.

Among voters not affiliated with either major party, the Tea Party comes out on top. Thirty-three percent (33%) prefer the Tea Party candidate, and 30% are undecided. Twenty-five percent (25%) would vote for a Democrat, and just 12% prefer the GOP.

Among Republican voters, 39% say they’d vote for the GOP candidate, but 33% favor the Tea Party option. …”

The Extended Mind: Recent Experimental Evidence

Background Articles and Videos

Rupert Sheldrake

“…Rupert Sheldrake (born 28 June 1942) is an English biochemist and plant physiologist. He is known for having proposed a non-standard account of morphogenesis and for his research into parapsychology. His books and papers stem from his theory of morphic resonance, and cover topics such as animal and plant development and behaviour, memory, telepathy, perception and cognition in general. His publications include A New Science of Life (1981), Seven Experiments That Could Change the World (1995), and The Sense of Being Stared At (2003).

Sheldrake’s ideas have often met with a hostile reception from some scientists, including accusations that he is engaged in pseudoscience.[1][2][3]

~Ludwig von Mises

“The development of a profession of economists is an offshoot of interventionism. The professional economist is the specialist who is instrumental in designing various measures of government interference with business. He is an expert in the field of economic legislation, which today invariably aims at hindering the operation of the market economy.”

Human Action, pages 865 and 869. 

“A sound monetary policy is one of the foremost means to thwart the insidious schemes of communism.”

The Man of The Year, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke was and  continues to be responsible for massive government intervention into the economy by an expansionary monetary policy that resulted in the housing and commercial real estate  bubbles and is now  prolonging the recession/depression and by 2012 will  lead to a significant decline in the purchasing power of the dollar with double digit  inflation. 

The Federal Reserve is creating another bubble with its expansionary credit monetary policy–a double bubble and an inflationary depression. 

The Dollar Bubble

The Peter Principle at work.

Glenn Beck is right.

The American people should have been selected as people of the year.

There are over 25,000,000 Americans seeking full time employment, more than double the number of unemployed Americans during the worse year of the Great Depression 1933.

The arrogance of the political class in Washington D.C. and their allies in big media knows no bounds.

While there is plenty of blame to go around as to the causes of this recession, the single entity that deserves a big piece of the blame is the Federal Reserve System under both Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke.

The Fed’s easy credit expansionary monetary policy fueled the housing and commercial real estate bubble.

The Fed’s lax regulation of large depositary institution that made imprudent investments in mortgage backed securities compounded this failure of government.

Both the Congress and Executive Branch did not stop the reckless investment policies of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

The American people are suffering as a direct result of the failure of government intervention in the economy. Government intervention begets more government intervention to correct the mistakes of government meddling into the market place.

This government intervention is only made worse by more bailouts, stimulus spending and political payoffs to the friends and supporters of both political parties.

The bill for this failure of Federal Government intervention policies is being sent to the American people and their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. The interest on this deficit spending that results in more Government debt  is simply staggering.

The American people are mad as hell and are not going to put up with this gross, irresponsible and criminal behavior of the political elites of both political parties.

We are Fed Up!

How TIME Picks Person of the Year

 

For Bernanke, Time’s Man of the Year: Honor or Curse?

By Michael Corkery

“…Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is Time magazine’s Person of the Year – an annual rite dating back to 1927. Time has dubbed Bernanke the “overlord” of the global economy, who coolly steered the world away from economic disaster.

The first draft of history has generally been kind to Bernanke, who is expected to coast to a second term. But history has not always been kind to previous winners of the Time award. With unemployment at 10% and business lending dormant, Bernanke knows that the final chapters of the financial crisis are still being written.

Here are some People of the Year whose fortunes have changed not long after winning the award:

1939 and 1942: Stalin, the Soviet ruler was so influential he won the award twice. His efforts to bring together the far flung cultures and geographies of the Soviet Union through fear, intimidation and murder, were undone by his successors. …”

The Progressive Radical Socialist Democratic Party wants to establish a permanent bailout slush fund of $200 billion as part of so-called financial regulation reform.

The American people have repeatedly made it clear they do not want any businesses or financial institutions to be bailedout by the Federal Government.

No more bailouts.

The progressive radical socialists are deaf, dumb and arrogant.

Time for a fillibuster!

The American people will vote out of office any Representative or Senator that votes for this bill.

“…But a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 22% of Americans favor providing federal bailout funds to states with serious financial problems. Fifty-eight percent (58%) oppose giving bailout money to financially troubled states.

On top of that, 56% of Americans oppose the passage of another economic stimulus package this year. While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other congressional Democrats are hoping to spend more to combat unemployment, just 33% favor another stimulus plan. …”

The advantages and benefits of the FairTax include the following:

  • Replaces all individual and corporate income taxes, Social Security, Medicare and other payroll taxes, alternative minimum tax, capital gains taxes, gift and estate taxes with a single rate national retail sales consumption tax–The Fair Tax
  • Provides a pre-bate for the taxes paid on the necessities of life up to the poverty level for all individuals–this eliminates the regressive aspect of any sales tax.
  • Pay taxes only when you consume a new good or service–no taxes on education and used or old goods.
  • No more filing of annual tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service and invasions of your privacy
  • Encourages work, savings and investment
  • Attracts capital and manufacturing back to the United States
  • Broadens the tax base
  • Expands our export sector by making it very competitive
  • Grows the economy at much higher rates
  • Creates more and higher paid jobs
  • Easy to understand and fair to all Americans

The more and better you understand the principles and benefits of the FairTax, the more you will be saying to yourself, “we need to do this now!”

Neal Boortz is an talk show host and libertarian who co-authored two books on the FairTax with Congressman John Linder.

Time for both Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly to get a clue about the Value Added Tax.

It is a bad idea.

The problem is government spending.

The solution is not another tax to “pay” for this spending.

The solution is to cut Federal Government spending by closing down and abolishing ten Federal Departments.

Milton Friedman on Libertarianism (Part 4 of 4)

Then limit each year’s Federal Budget spending or expenditures including Social Security and Medicare payments to 90% of revenues collected from the previous year’s FairTax.

The remaining 10% would go to pay down the National Debt.

No more deficit spending.

No more bailouts.

No more stimulus packages.

No more subsidies.

No more tax returns.

The time has come for both The FairTax and Surplus Budgets.

This is fiscal responsibility or living within ones means.

Try to pass a value added tax in addition to the income tax and you will get a tax revolt from the American people that will make the Tea Parties look like a walk in the park.

Any politician who supports a value added tax will be voted out of office, Democrat, Republican, Socialist, or Independent!

Any talk radio or television host who supports a Valued Added Tax in addition to  Federal income, payroll, capital gains and estate and gift taxes will lose audience as his/her listeners and viewers turn them off.

Be forewarned, the Value Added Tax is a loser.

Just look at who is supporting this idea–the Progressive Radical Socialist Democratic Party.

These people recognize that their Cap and Trade Energy Tax is not going to pass and their backup plan for more tax revenues is the Value Added Tax.

Obama and the Democratic Party need the Value Added Tax to pay for all the additional Federal Government spending they want including bailouts, stimulus packages, political payoffs and subsidies for their political supporters.

If you are against the Cap and Trade Energy Tax you should be against the Value Added Tax.

If you are not, you are confused.

Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly get a clue!

Do your homework.

It is about time several talk radio and television commentors do their homework as well!
Think of the Value Added Tax as a brand new credit card  with very high trillion dollar limits for the Progressive Radical Socialist Democratic Party to spend more of the American people’s money.

Throw the bums out.

Do not reward them with a new tax or credit card to steal money from the American people, their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Give me a break.

Enough is enough.

Replace all existing Federal taxes including Federal income, payroll, capital gains and estate and gift taxes with a national sales consumption tax–The FairTax.

The FairTax time has come!

Surplus Federal Budgets time has come.

Fiscal Responsibility time has come.

Limited Government time has come.

When they say to you it will never happen, start talking about the American Revolution.

24% Favor National Sales Tax, 65% Oppose

“…The New York Times reports that “economists across the political spectrum say a consumption tax may be inevitable once the economy fully recovers.”

One of the reasons cited by the newspaper is the lack of political will to cut spending, but implementing a national sales tax may be even more of a political challenge. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 24% of voters favor a national sales tax. Sixty-five percent (65%) are opposed.

When the idea is paired with health care reform, it does a bit better. Thirty-nine percent (39%) support a national sales tax to pay for the cost of health care reform, but a majority (52%) still remains opposed.

A plurality, however, like the idea of replacing the federal income tax with a national sales tax. Forty-four percent (44%) favor the idea, and 36% are opposed. …”

Value Added Tax

“…Value added tax (VAT), or goods and services tax (GST), or income tax is a consumption tax (CT) levied on any value that is added to a product. In contrast to sales tax, VAT is neutral with respect to the number of passages that there are between the producer and the final consumer whereas sales tax is levied on total value at each stage (though in the U.S. and many other countries, sales tax is charged only at the point of final sale to the final consumer, and a use tax only to the final user; there are no sales taxes paid at wholesale or production level). The result is a cascade (downstream taxes levied on upstream taxes). A VAT is an indirect tax, in that the tax is collected from someone who does not bear the entire cost of the tax.

Maurice Lauré, Joint Director of the French Tax Authority, the Direction générale des impôts, was first to introduce VAT on April 10, 1954, although German industrialist Dr. Wilhelm von Siemens proposed the concept in 1918. Initially directed at large businesses, it was extended over time to include all business sectors. In France, it is the most important source of state finance, accounting for 52% of state revenues.[1]

Personal end-consumers of products and services cannot recover VAT on purchases, but businesses are able to recover VAT on the materials and services that they buy to make further supplies or services directly or indirectly sold to end-users. In this way, the total tax levied at each stage in the economic chain of supply is a constant fraction of the value added by a business to its products, and most of the cost of collecting the tax is borne by business, rather than by the state. VAT was invented because very high sales taxes and tariffs encourage cheating and smuggling. Critics point out that it disproportionately raises taxes on middle- and low-income homes. …”

“…NASA’s Climate in a Box Project is exploring the utility of “desktop” supercomputers in providing a complete, pre-packaged, ready-to-use toolkit of climate research products and on-demand access to an HPC system. The system architecture NASA is developing will allow automatic code updates for each user, enhanced communication between users, and effective tools for dealing with generated data. NASA is also researching how this architecture might open the model development and validation process to the scientific community at large and enable a natural selection process resulting in more efficient modeling. …”

General Circulation Model

“…A General Circulation Model (GCM) is a mathematical model of the general circulation of a planetary atmosphere or ocean and based on the Navier-Stokes equations on a rotating sphere with thermodynamic terms for various energy sources (radiation, latent heat). These equations are the basis for complex computer programs commonly used for simulating the atmosphere or ocean of the Earth. Atmospheric and Oceanic GCMs (AGCM and OGCM) are key components of Global Climate Models along with sea-ice and land-surface components. GCMs and global climate models are widely applied for weather forecasting, understanding the climate, and projecting climate change. Versions designed for decade to century time scale climate applications were originally created by Syukuro Manabe and Kirk Bryan at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton, New Jersey.[1] These computationally intensive numerical models are based on the integration of a variety of fluid dynamical, chemical, and sometimes biological equations. …”

Climate change skeptic to sue

“…The fight over climate science is about to cross the Atlantic with a U.S. researcher poised to sue NASA, demanding the release of the same kind of information that landed a leading British center in hot water over charges that it skewed its data.

Christopher C. Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said NASA has refused for two years to provide information under the Freedom of Information Act that would show how the agency has shaped its climate data and explain why the agency has repeatedly had to correct its data dating as far back as the 1930s.

“I assume that what is there is highly damaging,” Mr. Horner said. “These guys are quite clearly bound and determined not to reveal their internal discussions about this.” …”

NASA powers up for the next UN IPCC

“…In August, Goddard added 4,128 new-generation Intel “Nehalem” processors to its Discover high-end computing system.

Discover will host NASA’s modeling contributions to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the leading scientific organization for assessing climate change, and other national and international climate initiatives.

To further enhance Discover’s capabilities, Goddard will install another 4,128 Nehalem processors in the fall, bringing Discover to 15,160 processors.

“We are the first high-end computing site in the United States to install Nehalem processors dedicated to climate research,” said Phil Webster, chief of Goddard’s Computational and Information Sciences and Technology Office (CISTO). “This new computing system represents a dramatic step forward in performance for climate simulations.” …”

Economic Collapse: Peter Schiff explains Obama’s false Chinese policy

 

Barack Obama on 60 Minutes

 

The Progressive Radical Socialists led by President Obama are destroying jobs, wrecking the economy and killing the American dream.

There are currently over 25,000,000 Americans seeking full time employment.

The official unemployment rate (U-3) is expected to exceed 10% throughout 2010.

The real unemployment rate (U-6) already exceeds 17% and in not expected to fall below  17% until 2011 at the earliest.

So what are the political “elites” in Washington D. C. proposing to do about job creation?

The Progressive Radical Socialists are trying to massively increase your taxes, increase government spending. deficits and the national debt and erode the purchasing power of the US dollar.

Vote out of office any Democrat or Republican representative or Senator that votes for the  new Health Care and Cap and Trade Energy tax bills and comprehensive immigration reform.

Abolish both the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Federal Reserve System.

The Federal Reserve and Congress caused the problem of a housing bubble by massive government intervention in expanding credit for housing mortgages and failing to regulate the investment activities of commercial, investment and mortgage bankers.

Shut them down now, before it is too late.

The political elites of both parties are fast becoming tyrants in their disregard of what is in the best interest of the American people.

The political elites only concern are how to control your lives and how  to stay in power or office.

The political elites  could care less that their proposed health care and energy tax bills would put several million more Americans out of work.

Throw these corrupt bums out of office in November 2010, 2012, and 2014.

When in doubt–throw them out.

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

December 14, 2009

“…The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 24% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -18.

That’s a one point improvement from yesterday when Obama’s Approval Index rating fell to the lowest level yet recorded. Prior to the past three days, the Approval Index had never fallen below -15 during Obama’s time in office (see trends).

As the health care plan struggles in the Senate, public opposition remains stable. Fifty-six percent (56% ) oppose the plan working its way through Congress while just 40% favor it. In Nevada, the health care bill is causing problems for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s bid for re-election.

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern …”

40% Support Health Care Plan, 56% Oppose It

“…Fifty-six percent (56%) of U.S. voters now oppose the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s the highest level of opposition found – reached three times before – in six months of polling.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 40% of voters favor the health care plan.

Perhaps more significantly, 46% now Strongly Oppose the plan, compared to 19% who Strongly Favor it. …”
