Dumbing Down U.S.: ObamaCare is the Affordable Care Act, you Dummies!

The Morning Consult survey (published by New York Times) discovered how stupid U.S. citizens have become regarding ObamaCare-Affordable Care Act (ACA).

35% think ObamaCare-ACA is two separate policies, or they aren’t even sure what it is!   The survey also showed that the younger and poorer an adult is the more ignorant they are of the mandatory healthcare program!

And here’s something interesting, people who call themselves republicans are the most likely to understand what ObamaCare-ACA is!  Is this why they’re so adamant about repealing it?   Amazingly 45% of respondents didn’t known that republicans were trying to repeal it!

By the way, there are plenty of examples showing that ever since Barack Obama coined the term ObamaCare the general public has been totally confused about it.

ObamaCare Death Spiral, December 2016: “UNCERTAINTY ABOUT FUTURE GOVERNMENT FUNDING”

Dumbing Down the U.S., December 2016: “THIS IS A BOMB DROPPED ON US!” “I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!”

“…give us some breathing room…” : U.S. federal/state/local government Shenanigans, December 2016

Incomplete list (due to internet access problems, come on why won’t anybody donate to BlindBatNews?) of U.S. Federal/State/Local Government self-destruct announcements for December 2016:

Political activists known as The Koch Brothers laid off 81 people, now that the undemocratic presidential election is over.  At the same time they announced they’re creating a new for-profit communications company.

Alaska:  The state’s low tax collections (due to oil industry cutbacks) got a big boost from the new legalized marijuana operations.  December was the second month of Mary-Jane tax collections with the state raking in nearly $146-thousand USD! Buds are taxed at $50 per ounce, and the junk is taxed at $15 per ounce, with the grower being responsible for the tax payments.  

Colorado:  Garfield County Library District laid off eight people due to a $1.2-million USD crash in revenues (that’s what happens when you put all your hopes into the oil industry and then they reduce local operations by 45%).

Florida: Orange County was surprised when tax collections from tourists crashed by 3.5% in December. Local news reports say December is usually a good tax collection month for Orange County.  The city of Miami reports continued crashing of hotel tax collections, and of course city admin continues to blame it on fear of the Zika virus.

Georgia:  The overall tax collections for December 2016 were stagnant at 0.7% compared to December 2015.

Illinois: Peoria County warning of as many as 40 layoffs as part of their budget for 2017.  The new budget also raises property taxes.  County chairman Andy Rand indicated they didn’t expect any short term economic recovery by saying the austerity measures were meant to “…give us some breathing room over the next four years.”

Louisiana: Tax collections from tourists dropped 3.5% in December.

Massachusetts: Once again, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to kill jobs, this time warning of at least one hundred layoffs in 2017, due to a taxpayer funding shortage of $100-million USD!

Nebraska: For the past six months state level tax collections have been far less than what the predominantly ‘christian’ government ‘experts’ expected.  Actual tax collections came in at $51-million short of what was projected, proving their economy has not improved.  

New Jersey: The evil city of Newark forces janitor services company United Services to layoff 41 people.  In July, United Services filed a lawsuit claiming the city failed to pay for services rendered!

New York: Tax-sucking military sewing contractor The Resource Center issued a shutdown WARN, 57 Buffalo jobs lost by March 2017.  The town of Hempstead shutting down the 20 years old East Meadow Senior Center because the property owner now wants $9-thousand per month in rent (for the past 20 years the rent was free).

Ohio:  Tax collections failed to meet government budget ‘expert’s expectations, for the 5th month in a row!  This is another sign that Ohio’s low unemployment rate is fake.

Pennsylvania: 520 Jobless Center employees could join the unemployment lines before Xmas! Local news media blames it on disputes between Democrat and Republican politicians.

Tennessee:  Wilson County reports four straight years of increased sales tax collections, local news reports didn’t explain why.  However, at the state level it was reported that overall sales and corporate tax collections were up, mainly due to “substantial one time” corporate tax payouts.   

Texas: State tax collectors reported that tax revenues for the twin cities of Bryan-College Station were up for the year, but down for December.  The increases came from sales taxes, and the decreases were caused by the oil industry shutdowns. 

Vermont: Taxpayer funded, Bernie Sanders founded, drug-free music venue 242 Main finally shutdown after 32 years of lack of funding and lack of ticket sales. (probably would’ve made money if it offered free drugs instead of being drug-free)

Virginia: The city of Danville reports increased tax and fee collections for the year. City admin admitted that part of the increase is from cash strapped property owners finally making payments on past due taxes.  

Washington DC: The federal government’s budget deficit hit $28-billion in December 2016, double what it was in December 2015!  Obama regime’s new legacy as The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reports a record 95-million 102-thousand U.S. citizen, ages 16 and up, are Not In Labor Force during December. Not In Labor Force refers to people unemployed for various reasons, and are not used to calculate the ‘official’ unemployment percentage as reported by main stream news media. Meaning the number of unemployed ‘Mericans is much higher than ‘officially’ reported.

Obama Legacy: MUJAHIDEEN RE-TAKE MORE OF AFGHANISTAN

Obama’s own Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) reports that after eight years of Obama policy in Afghanistan the Mujahideen (specifically the Taliban) have actually become stronger and now control 43% of the country.  This revelation comes a few weeks after Barack Obama ordered the deployment of additional Marines to Afghanistan, right before Donald Trump was swore in as the new President of the United States.

Obama regime creates new legacy as the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reports a record 95-million 102-thousand U.S. citizen, ages 16 and up, are Not In Labor Force during December 2016.

Not In Labor Force refers to people unemployed for various reasons and who are not looking for work.  Those Not In Labor Force people are not used to calculate the ‘official’ unemployment percentage as reported by main stream news media, meaning the number of unemployed ‘Mericans is much higher than ‘officially’ reported.

On 06 January 2017 it was revealed that the Obama regime ordered the deployment of 3-hundred U.S. Marines to Afghanistan.  The order was the result of a request for additional troops by CentCom (Central Command) and U.S. Forces-Afghanistan.

The GI-rines will make up Task Force South West, ostensibly to “train and advise” Afghan puppet government military and police forces in Helmand Province.

Afghan puppet government forces in combat with Mujahideen in Helmand, October 2016

The MarineTimes reports this will be the first of many rotations of Marines back into Helmand Province because “The Afghans have seen security erode in several Helmand districts, including Marjah, Sangin and in the provincial capital, Lashkar Gah. All have experienced resurgent violence as a determined Taliban seeks to reclaim lost ground and once again push out any political and security entities loyal to the central Afghan government.”

In August 2016 Sergeant First Class  Erin Smith was awarded with Idaho’s Spirit of Freedom Award.  Her ‘exceptional’ act was becoming the first ever female ‘tanker’ in the United States military!  (I wonder why the U.S. main stream national news media didn’t mention it?)

SFC Smith officially became a M1 tanker (MOS 19K) in June of 2016.  Her original MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) was healthcare specialist.  She deployed to Bosnia in 2002 and then Iraq in 2004, where she was awarded the Combat Medical Badge.

Smith’s transition to a combat MOS was the result of U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter opening combat jobs to women at the end of 2015.  However, I’ve always known some women can handle combat jobs no problem.  Several NATO member countries have had female’s in combat jobs for decades, such as Idaho’s neighbor to the north Canada.

While deployed for a ‘friendly’ armor contest with Canadian tankers in 2002, an impromptu main-gun loading contest was held between Bravo Company, 2-116th Armored Cav, Idaho National Guard and Canadian tankers in Alberta.  Main-gun rounds weigh about 19kg (40 pounds) and unlike the auto-loading Soviet/Russian panzers most U.S.-NATO tanks are manually loaded. Guess who won the manly competition? A skinny Canadian army officer who just happened to be a female!

But that’s not the first time I witnessed a female kicking ass over males. While attending Army Basic Training in 1982 one of my Army Drill Sergeants was a little female who could out push-up and out sit-up the men!

Still, I’m proud the Idaho National Guard can boast having the first female M1 Abrams tanker in the U.S.!

On 31 December 2016 a small ceremony was held in the city of Kent to welcome home the 179th Engineer Company, Washington National Guard.

On 30 March 2016, the 179th deployed to Iraq, several of their personnel are single parents.  On 06 May 2016, Lieutenant David Bauders was killed at the Al Asad Air Base in Iraq.  At the time the U.S. Department of Defense said Bauders’ death was being investigated as a ‘noncombat incident’.  So far no further details have been released to the public.

The 179th’s deployment to Iraq was its first combat deployment, however, the 179th is routinely deployed to the Kingdom of Thailand as part of the U.S. National Guard Bureau’s State Partnership Program.

Arkansas Militia deploys to Africa!

On 01 January 2017, the Obama regime deployed about 7-hundred personnel from the 1st Battalion, 153rd Infantry Regiment, 39th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, Arkansas National Guard.  They were sent to the oil rich Horn of Africa region.

They will be part of the U.S. AfriCom occupation of Africa under the guise of the legally undeclared War on Terror (U.S. Congress never declared war, the last time that happened was January 1942 a full month after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor).

“With it ends a 70-year geopolitical era of Pax Americana.”-Top Risks 2017: The Geopolitical Recession

The New York City based political policy think-tank known as Eurasia Group has declared the U.S. the biggest threat to the World in 2017, all because of Donald Trump!

However, the control freaks at Eurasia Group don’t think the threat to the World will be an overly aggressive President Trump, but that Trump will pull back from “…America’s responsibility to play an indispensable role in world affairs.”  In other words, the paranoids at Eurasia Group believe the U.S. must continue playing World Cop for other countries who refuse to police themselves!
