    Here’s how most Venezuelans lost an average of 19 pounds in 2016, and how to make sure it doesn’t happen again in 2017 In early 2017, a nationwide survey of the people of Venezuela showed that during the year 2016, almost 75% of the population had lost weight due to not having enough food, and that their average weight loss was 19 pounds.Before I explain how this came to happen, I want to start out by explaining what did not cause this to happen.Many media outlets have been blaming Venezuela’s food shortages on the 2014 collapse in the price of oil....

    Since January 1 of this year, James Barnes has had pretty decent health care. He gets insulin for his diabetes and the needles to inject it, blood pressure medication, access to a psychiatrist and counselor and optometrist, and frequent visits to the doctor, all for free. Barnes lives in Maryland, one of the dozens of states that expanded Medicaid to people with incomes at or below 138 percent of the poverty level as part of the Affordable Care Act. For Barnes and thousands like him, that expansion has meant access to services like physical therapy, mental-health treatment, x-rays, dialysis, hospice...
  • Barone: Romney's debate win opens cracks in Obama fire wall

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 6, 2012 | Michael Barone
    Wednesday night's presidential debate in which Mitt Romney shellacked Barack Obama attracted the biggest audience since the debate between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan seven days before the 1980 election.. About 70 million Americans watched, a little more than half the 131 million voter turnout in 2008. That's an estimate, because the ratings companies don't count those watching on C-SPAN, PBS or the Internet. Did the debates matter? The first state polls, conducted by Rasmussen and We Ask America on Thursday night, suggest the answer is yes. Rasmussen reported that Romney was down 1 point in Ohio. We Ask America...

    House Democrats are working with the White House to craft an executive order that would clarify President Obama's intention to maintain a long-standing ban on federal funding of abortion, congressional Democrats said. The effort was part of a hurried campaign by House leaders on Saturday to persuade a pivotal bloc of antiabortion Democrats to support far-reaching health insurance reforms. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and others huddled in a suite of offices just off the House floor, trying to come up with language that would satisfy six to 10 lawmakers, mostly Rust Belt Catholics, who voted for an earlier version...

    Be ready, Congress plans to rush through a complete overhaul of YOUR health care this summer. You can bet this so-called reform bill will... * Be long, complicated, and packed with special interest favors * Have massive consequences, both intended and unintended * Add hundreds of billions of dollars to our already cancerous national liabilities You can also bet that... * More of your health care decisions will be dictated by bureaucrats, in a desperate attempt to control costs * Almost no member of Congress will read the bill, or really understand it * Any problems the bill creates will...

    History Channel is shilling for the Looney-Left. Apparently, Global Warming will lead to exploding clouds of methane above cities, mass flooding of Katrina scale hurricanes, the boogey man, and man bear pig. The flooded world of 125,000 years ago is upon us yet again!!! It seems that they are mixing some (miniscule) amounts of hard science with a whole lot of science fiction. So, if you are a hung over lefty high on some medicinal weed and sucking on a block of government cheese- you are going to be scared… and join the useful mass of the idiot-lefts proletariat. Bunch...

    What does the bible say about universal heath care? By Darren Morrison The Question was proposed to me by someone trying to prove that liberals are more in tune with the teachings of Jesus. People on the left think that universal heath care is the holy of holies. The secrete cow of secular humanist. Jesus died on the cross to set us free from the bondage of sin not to set up free clinics though out the world. It is a Godly thing to give aid to the sick and lamb for sure but that is not the goal of...
