President signs historic health care legislation into law with Bishop's support

You people need to get you head out of the sand. We are being forced to buy goods and services even if we dont want to. If we dont then we will be fined! Read the fine print. The IRS will now have the power to look at your health Insurance to see if it meets the new Gov Standards. If it doesnt you will be fined through your income tax return. Illegal immigrants are exempt from fines how does that grab you. Costs will go up more taxes on medical devices will mean increased cost to the end user. More cuts to Medicaid/Medicare will leave a severe blow to hospitals and doctors. How can this help?
see below clip from a Report....
 IRS agents verify if you have “acceptable” health care coverage;
 IRS has the authority to fine you up to $2,250 or 2 percent of your income (whichever is
greater) for failure to prove that you have purchased “minimum essential coverage”;
 IRS can confiscate your tax refund;
 IRS audits are likely to increase;
 IRS will need up to $10 billion to administer the new health care program this decade;
 IRS may need to hire as many as 16,500 additional auditors, agents and other employees
to investigate and collect billions in new taxes from Americans; and
 Nearly half of all these new individual mandate taxes will be paid by Americans earning
less than 300 percent of poverty ($66,150 for a family of four)." Mar 24, 10 6:48 AM

This isn;t about Politics as I stated above look at the big picture....
Socialized Medicine will not work......
Some ideas do indeed die hard. For the greater part of the last half century, a number of our more “enlightened” — that is, more socialist-minded — neighbors, such as Canada and the European nations, have nationalized their medical industries and ever since have been struggling to live up to their promise of “health insurance and quality health care” for all. Huge waiting lists for care and visitations with specialists, a lack of sophisticated medical equipment, rising costs (which must be met by rising taxes), and a general increase in dissatisfaction with government-run health care are typical in all countries where the government, literally, calls the shots.

The first error of those who promote “national health care” is their complete inability to accept that nothing in life is certain. Just because a law is passed guaranteeing “quality medical care for all” doesn’t mean it will happen — though this is certainly a heretical view in today’s climate of government worship. No matter how much they may want it, leftists will have to accept that regardless of the system in place, someone, somewhere, will go without the care he needs. Conventional “wisdom” has maintained that at least under a government system more people will have care than otherwise. But after 50 years of experimentation, the jury is in: Socialized medicine simply cannot deliver the goods.

So the only question is, what system has shown itself capable of best distributing the greatest amount of any good or service to the greatest number of people, at the highest quality and lowest price? The answer is the free market. Medical care is no different from any other commodity. In order to be most efficiently and widely distributed, it requires the unfettered signals of supply and demand, lest it fall victim to socialism’s standard shortcomings: bureaucratization, rationing, rising costs, overproduction (in some areas), underproduction (in others), and eventual failure" Mar 25, 10 6:43 AM

Oh real TV like CNN? (Corrupt news Network) that only airs what they want us to believe? come on wake up America - remember what they did to Connie Chug for telling the TRUTH. The truth hurts and no one wants to believe it. Denial is all that is going on........if anyone has half a brain around here you can search the internet and see whats really happening. Get your heads out of the sand already!

A poll released in February 2008, conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health and Harris Interactive, indicated that Americans are currently divided in their opinions of socialized medicine, and this split correlates strongly with their political party affiliation. Two-thirds of those polled said they understood the term "socialized medicine" very well or somewhat well. When offered descriptions of what such a system could mean, strong majorities believed that it means "the government makes sure everyone has health insurance" (79%) and "the government pays most of the cost of health care" (73%). One-third (32%) felt that socialized medicine is a system where "the government tells doctors what to do". The poll showed "striking differences" by party affiliation. Among Republicans polled, 70% said that socialized medicine would be worse than the current system. The same percentage of Democrats (70%) said that a socialized medical system would be better than the current system. Independents were more evenly split, with 43% saying socialized medicine would be better and 38% worse. According to Robert J. Blendon, Professor of Health Policy and Political Analysis at the Harvard School of Public Health, "The phrase ‘socialized medicine' really resonates as a pejorative with Republicans. However, that so many Democrats believe that socialized medicine would be an improvement is an indication of their dissatisfaction with our current system." According to Humphrey Taylor, chairman of The Harris Polls, "Only just over one third of adults think that socialized medicine would be worse than what we have now, and majorities associate the words with popular policies such as Medicare and a government guarantee that everyone has health insurance" Mar 25, 10 10:52 AM

Southampton Town leaf collection policy forums scheduled

Pick-up my own leaves and bag them myself....souds like a nice idea except the fact I have 3/4 of an acre! It would take me 19 weeks to rake and bag all my leaves - i would probably need 500+ bags! I dont mind doing some outdoor work and exersize but that is way more than one person can handle! If thats is what they want US to do forTHEM so they don't have to then we SHOULD NOT have to pay for the bags!

Now how the heck are some people like me supposed to drag bag after bag after bag of leaves and brush to the transfer station??? I do not own an expensive gas guzzling SUV. I do not own a pick-up truck. It would take me 100 trips back and forth with maybe 2-3 bags of leaves!!! How am I supposed to bring brances and brush in a car??? It would be a big waste of gas for me it's a crazy idea to have homeowners bring their leaves and brush when we do not have any way to transport it! WAKE UP!!!! Someone is missing the target here!!!!" Mar 29, 10 7:57 AM

Local Residents React To Stunning Trump Victory

Hillary Clinton is a lady many despise and many love. But just what does anyone know about her background and how it relates to the United States? Her background has some really radical people in it, and one particular individual is none other than Saul Alinsky. Now, many have to wonder just who is this Saul Alinsky? Now we do have to give a brief background on him, since it is his ideology that Hillary Clinton grew up loving. The first thing we have to present is his famous book, "Rules For Radicals," of which Hillary even wrote a letter to him asking when it would be out, as she so lightly stated in her letter to Saul Alinsky, dated July 8, 1971.

"Dear Saul,

When is that new book coming out—or has it come out and I somehow missed the fulfillment of Revelation? I have just had my one-thousandth conversation about Reveille and need some new material to throw at people. You are being rediscovered again as the New Left-type politicos are finally beginning to think seriously about the hard work and mechanics of organizing. I seem to have survived law school, alightly bruised, with my belief and zest for organizing intact. If I never thanked you for the encouraging words of last spring in the midst of the Yale-Columbia madness, I do so now. The more I've seen places like Yale Law School and the people who haunt them, the more I am convinced I am that we have the serious business and joy of such work ahead, --if the commitment to a free and open society is ever going to mean more than eloquence and frustration.

I miss our biennial conversations. Do you ever make it out to California? I am living in Berkeley and working in Oakland for the summer and would love to see you. Let me know if there is any chance of our getting together—2667 Derby #2, Berkeley 415-841-5330."

(See the entire letter)

Let us inform you of just who this Saul Alinsky is that Hillary Clinton is trying to meet in California. We will make this brief, since including Saul Alinsky's history and how it goes against the Constitution would take up many pages, which we will do in a book soon.

Saul Alinsky was born to Russian-Jewish parents in Chicago in 1909, Saul Alinsky was a Communist/Marxist fellow-traveler who helped establish the tactics of infiltration -- coupled with a measure of confrontation -- that have been central to revolutionary political movements in the United States in recent decades. He never joined the Communist Party, but instead, as David Horowitz puts it, became an avatar of the post-modern left.

Saul Alinsky has been identified as such:
•Identified a set of very specific rules that ordinary citizens could follow, and tactics that ordinary citizens could employ, as a means of gaining public power
•Created a blueprint for revolution under the banner of "social change"
•Two of his most notable modern-day disciples are Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

As Alinsky put it: "A reformation means that the masses of our people have reached the point of disillusionment with past ways and values. They don't know what will work but they do know that the prevailing system is self-defeating, frustrating, and hopeless. They won't act for change but won't strongly oppose those who do. The time is then ripe for revolution."[1]

[1] Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals (New York: Vintage Books), March 1972 edition, p. xxii. (Original publication was in 1971.)

(See also)

Now, with her letter, part of which is shown above from the site, it could be asked just what type of person Hillary Clinton is. It would seem to show that she is a closet Socialist/Communist at best, or maybe an individual who has the same type of "Rules For Radicals" in her head to toss out upon the people of the United States. Much could be stated about what Hillary Clinton may plan to do, should she win the 2016 Presidential election, but one thing is for sure: her idea of the United States is not the same as the honest, working Citizen's! Her ideas are lined with dreams of an "Alinsky" style of not just government, but nation—one that has the Constitution trampled upon.

Allen West wrote the article cited above, and in it are the total copies of the letters both to and from Saul Alinsky in relation to Hilary Clinton. We should have extreme questions about this, no matter where one sits on the sides of politics, since her ideas seem to stem from the teachings of Saul Alinsky and his ideology was to destroy the United States and turn it into a "Socialist" state! Obama had the Communist Party of the United States support him, not just as President, but also when he ran for Illinois Senator! It would seem that, since Hillary Clinton comes from that same distinct area, maybe she, too, stands to obtain the support of the Communist Party!

We are not just dropping names here; these are facts, as shown in the opening paragraph of the article written by Allen West:

"I went to Chicago a couple of times over the summer — beautiful city, and what an awesome waterfront along Lake Michigan. However, I just have to laugh when I think of the level of radicalism and corruption in Chicago politics. Here is the lineup of famous Chicago residents: Saul Alinksy, Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, Jesse Jackson, Sr. and Jr. (the latter being a federal prison resident), Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayres, Tony Rezko, Louis Farrakhan, David Plouffe, and, of course, Al Capone. Now, combine that with the number of incarcerated former politicians and the fact that in June of this year, the Communist Party of the United States held its 30th convention in Chicago."

Allen West also states in his article:

"As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, "Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveals new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton's relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

"The last thing America needs is another left wing ideologue espousing progressive socialist policies. The problem for Hillary Clinton is that she's tried very hard to hide her radicalism – as a matter of fact, she's doing everything possible right now to distance herself from ol' brother Barack. However, she's not trusted by the progressive Left or the rest of America either. We all know Hillary Clinton as a shrewd deceptive operator, not personable and willing to tell a lie at the drop of a hat. Plus, the Clintons have more scandals following them than the days are long — hmm, sounds like a familiar tune of the past six years. After all, they were all spawned from the same corrupt social organizing political machine. They're just serious rivals.

"A self-proclaimed radical, Alinsky advocated guerilla tactics and civil disobedience (SEIU, Occupy Wall Street, ACORN) to correct what he saw as an institutionalized power gap in poor communities. His philosophy divided the world into "haves"—middle class and wealthy people —and "have nots"—the poor. He took an ends-justify-the-means approach to power and wealth redistribution, and developed the theoretical basis of "community organizing." "The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power," wrote Alinsky in his 1971 book. "Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."

Now, with all this just waiting to be dispensed out to the good people of the United States, we decided to bring these facts to light, and if people wish to read the letters and see for themselves what Hillary Clinton wrote, they can go to the site and read it. We feel that the more people that know about Hillary Clinton's links to Socialists, Communists, thugs, criminals, and the like, the better it will be.

We do know that maybe the people are just now waking up to see that our very freedom and the Constitution we love is in threat, so maybe they will see Hillary for who she really is and that this lady should never hold another office of public statue anywhere.

Communist Goals (1963)

Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35
January 10, 1963

Current Communist Goals



Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following "Current Communist Goals," which she identifies as an excerpt from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:

[From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]


1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.
