Obama healthcare plan boon for hospitals: Moody's

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Barack Obama's plan to extend health care to uninsured Americans will provide a boon to hospitals, along with medical centers and hospital equipment makers, according to Moody's Investors Service.

"Moody's estimates that the annual cost of the plan could be on the order of $100 billion to $200 billion, inclusive of participant contributions, on top of current annual government spending of about $800 billion," the rating agency said in a report this week.

"The expected spending could positively affect the top-line growth of many health care providers," the rating agency added, noting that the agenda of Obama's Democratic party includes increasing research funding and providing $10 billion over five years to health care providers to build up electronic-information systems.

The agency added that for-profit and non-profit hospitals alike could benefit from the plan, which was a cornerstone of Obama's campaign. He was elected president on Tuesday and will be sworn in in January.

The plan will raise some revenue by taxing larger employers that do not offer health coverage, Moody's said.

Because the plan would increase the number of insured patients and the amount of reimbursements for care, hospitals could benefit directly and indirectly, Moody's also said.

"The improvement would be direct, through reimbursements, as well as indirect, if more people seek primary-care treatment in a more-appropriate setting such as a physician's office or a clinic, for example, rather than in an emergency room," Moody's said. "This would free capacity and reduce pressure at hospital (emergency rooms), many of which are operating well-above capacity."

So, raising taxes on employers in a recession is seen as a good thing by these people. For a historical refernce, go check out what happened int he early 1930" when then President Herbert Hoover raised income taxes and corporate taxes after the crash of 1929. A little thing called the Great Depression followed and we had to go through WWII to get past it.

Get used to the outright shilling and campaigning folks. As Chrissy Matthews said, they (the MSM) see their job as assisting Obama to succeed.

Next step, internment camps for dissenters.

I hope I get a cell near Babba.

The Corrupt Origins of Central Banking


FRANK ZAPPA
THE CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER


The Corrupt Origins of Central Banking

by Thomas DiLorenzo

Central banking has been a corrupt, mercantilist scheme and an engine of corporate welfare from its very beginning in the late 18th century. The first central bank, the Bank of North America, was "driven through the Continental Congress by [congressman and financier] Robert Morris in the Spring of 1781," wrote Murray Rothbard in The Mystery of Banking (p. 191). The Philadelphia businessman Morris had been a defense contractor during the Revolutionary War who "siphoned off millions from the public treasury into contracts to his own … firm and to those of his associates." He was also "leader of the powerful Nationalist forces" in the new country.

The main objective of the Nationalists, who were also known as Federalists, was essentially to establish an American version of the British mercantilist system, the very system that the Revolution had been fought against. Indeed, it was this system that the ancestors of the Revolutionaries had fled from when they came to America. As Rothbard explained, their aim was:

To reimpose in the new United States a system of mercantilism and big government similar to that in Great Britain, against which the colonists had rebelled. The object was to have a strong central government, particularly a strong president or king as chief executive, built up by high taxes and heavy public debt. The strong government was to impose high tariffs to subsidize domestic manufacturers, develop a big navy to open up and subsidize foreign markets for American exports, and launch a massive system of internal public works. In short, the United States was to have a British system without Great Britain. (p. 192)


An important part of the "Morris scheme," as Rothbard called it, was "to organize and head a central bank, to provide cheap credit and expanded money for himself and his allies. The … Bank of North America was deliberately modeled after the Bank of England." The Bank was given a monopoly privilege of its notes being receivable in all tax payments to state and federal government, and no other banks were permitted to operate in the country. It "graciously agreed to lend most of its newly created money to the federal government," wrote Rothbard, and "the hapless taxpayers would have to pay the Bank principal and interest."

Despite these monopolistic privileges, a lack of public confidence in the Bank's inflated notes led to their depreciation and the Bank was privatized by the end of 1783. But Morris did not give up on his scheme. He recruited a young Alexander Hamilton to serve more or less as his political puppet within the Washington administration. (Rothbard called Hamilton "Morris's youthful disciple.") In fact, the reason why Hamilton became Treasury secretary, despite having no reputation at all in the field of finance, was the recommendation by Morris to George Washington. (During the Revolutionary War, when he was an aide to Washington, Hamilton took the time to write Morris a 30-page letter proclaiming that he agreed with every one of his ideas about protectionist tariffs, corporate subsidies, and a government-run bank to finance them.)

Morris and his fellow Nationalists wanted a king-like chief executive who would rule over a mercantilist empire, just as the king of England ruled over his mercantilist empire. They, of course, would be the ones to advise and instruct the "king" and benefit financially from such an empire. So their young protégé Hamilton commenced his seven-year crusade to overthrow the first US constitution — the Articles of Confederation — by calling for a new constitutional convention to supposedly "revise" the Articles of Confederation. At the convention, Hamilton laid out his (really Morris's) plan: a permanent president who would appoint all the governors and who would have veto power over all state legislation. Under such a plan, state sovereignty would have been destroyed, and there would have been no escape from the central government's high taxes, protectionist tariffs, heavy debt, and foreign-policy imperialism — the agenda of the Nationalists.

The Hamilton/Morris plan was defeated, of course, as was the proposal made at the convention to include a central bank among the delegated powers to the federal government. But the government was more highly centralized, as "the Nationalist forces pushed through a new Constitution" and "were on their way to re-establishing the mercantilist and statist British model…" (p. 193). They begrudgingly acquiesced in a Bill of Rights in return for the anti-Federalists' support for the new Constitution. And most importantly, writes Rothbard,

A critical part of their program was put through in 1791 by their leader, Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, a disciple of Robert Morris. Hamilton put through Congress the First Bank of the…. United States…. modeled after the old Bank of North America [whose]….longtime president and former partner of Robert Morris, Thomas Willing of Philadelphia, was made president of the New Bank.
In making his case to President Washington for the constitutionality of a central bank, which had been explicitly rejected at the constitutional convention, Hamilton invented the idea of "implied powers" of the Constitution. These were "powers" that were not expressly delegated to the federal government in the document, but could be "implied" by clever lawyers like Hamilton. This of course became a roadmap for the total destruction of constitutional limitations on the powers of the federal government.

The First Bank of the United States "promptly fulfilled its inflationary potential," Rothbard writes in his History of Money and Banking in the United States (p. 69). It issued millions of dollars in paper money and demand deposits "pyramiding on top of $2 million in specie." The Bank invested heavily in the US government, and "The result of the outpouring of credit and paper money by the new Bank of the United States was … an increase [in prices] of 72 percent" from 1791–1796.

Northern merchants provided the main political support for Hamilton's Bank, whereas southern politicians like Jefferson supplied most of the opposition to it, seeing it as nothing more than a vehicle for financing an American version of the corrupt British mercantilist system, which would be destructive of liberty and prosperity. They were right, of course, and remain right to this day.
Thomas DiLorenzo is professor of economics at Loyola College in Maryland and a member of the senior faculty of the Mises Institute. He is the author of The Real Lincoln, Lincoln Unmasked, How Capitalism Saved America, and, more recently, Hamilton's Curse.

WFRL: Jezebel


Edith Piaf
Jezebel ~ 1951


Jezebel
was the Phonecian wife of Ahab, King of Biblical Israel from around 871 to about 852 BC. She was also the daughter of Ethbaal, king of Sidon. Jezebel worshiped Satan under the name of the pagan god Baal . She was instrumental in leading Israel into moral corruption and idol worship.

Jezebel was entirely evil. Both Elijah and Elisha laid more blame on Jezebel than on Ahab for the persecution of God's prophets during their reign. Elijah prophesied that Jezebel would be torn apart by the dogs of Jezreel in 1 Kings 21:23. BTW Jezebel's daughter, Athaliah, later became Queen of Judah, and she too was proven evil.

So, one day Elijah throws down with the Prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel and ultimately kills them all. At this point Jezebel vows to kill Elijah, so Elijah must flee for his life.

Meantime, Jehu gets anointed to become the future King of Israel. He is instructed to destroy the family of Ahab, to avenge the murder of the Lord's prophets, and to avenge the deaths of all the other people destroyed by Jezebel.

Jehu sees Jezebel in the high palace window, and he calls upon the people in the palace to throw her ass down, and so they tossed her out of the window. Exactly as Elijah had prophesied, the dogs tore her body to pieces.

In Revelation 2 Jezebel's name is used to represent the female aspect of an important demonic principality spirit. She is described there as a false prophetess who seeks to lure Christians into idolatrous practices. This is the only place in the NT where her name appears. The entire story of Jezebel can be found in 1 Kings, chapters 16, 18, 19, 21, and 2 Kings chapter 9.

Her Royal Seal was unearthed in Israel in 2007.

Fit for a Queen: Jezebel’s Royal Seal

Note from Jehu:

Good work Babba. Now interesting that Ethball, king of the Sidonians was a direct descendent of Ham via Canaan Gen 10:15 15 Canaan was the father of Sidon his firstborn, [a] and of the Hittites.

Now Noah had cursed Canaan, Ham's firstborn son for the fact that Ham had laughed at his father's nakedness. (This was a high spiritual crime, in that Ham was channeling Satan) But Noah would not curse his own son...that was a reflection on himself, so he cursed Ham's son Canaan, and Canaan's firstborn was Sidon. So Jezebel is a direct lineage to the curse, and is a Nephelim, a person that is not demon possesed, but fallen angels, including Satan can move through them.

See book of Job when God asks Satan where have you been? Satan responds, I have been traveling in the earth, and up and down in it. In other words bouncing around in human channels in order to accomplish his purposes.

(Think of Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mau, etc.) So Jezebel represents the fallen angel that is assigned to thwart the people of God, she is the designated spirit to fight the prophetic, or the prophets.

Prove you wrong and that you would be the fool -

Oh to fight is to defend if it's not
Now then tell me
when would be the time that you would stand up
And be a man - for to lose I could accept but to surrender
I just wept and regretted this moment - oh that I - I

Own life - it's all a mystery

PSALM 49

1 Hear this, all you peoples;
listen, all who live in this world,

2 both low and high,
rich and poor alike:

3 My mouth will speak words of wisdom;
the utterance from my heart will give understanding.

4 I will turn my ear to a proverb;
with the harp I will expound my riddle:

5 Why should I fear when evil days come,
when wicked deceivers surround me-

6 those who trust in their wealth
and boast of their great riches?

7 No man can redeem the life of another
or give to God a ransom for him-

8 the ransom for a life is costly,
no payment is ever enough-

9 that he should live on forever
and not see decay.

10 For all can see that wise men die;
the foolish and the senseless alike perish
and leave their wealth to others.

11 Their tombs will remain their houses forever,
their dwellings for endless generations,
though they had named lands after themselves.

12 But man, despite his riches, does not endure;
he is like the beasts that perish.

13 This is the fate of those who trust in themselves,
and of their followers, who approve their sayings.
Selah

14 Like sheep they are destined for the grave,
and death will feed on them.
The upright will rule over them in the morning;
their forms will decay in the grave,
far from their princely mansions.

15 But God will redeem my life from the grave;
he will surely take me to himself.
Selah

16 Do not be overawed when a man grows rich,
when the splendor of his house increases;

17 for he will take nothing with him when he dies,
his splendor will not descend with him.

18 Though while he lived he counted himself blessed—
and men praise you when you prosper-

19 he will join the generation of his fathers,
who will never see the light of life .

20 A man who has riches without understanding
is like the beasts that perish.

Political World

We live in a political world,
Love don't have any place.
We're living in times where men commit crimes
And crime don't have a face

We live in a political world,
Icicles hanging down,
Wedding bells ring and angels sing,
clouds cover up the ground.

We live in a political world,
Wisdom is thrown into jail,
It rots in a cell, is misguided as hell
Leaving no one to pick up a trail.

We live in a political world
Where mercy walks the plank,
Life is in mirrors, death disappears
Up the steps into the nearest bank.

We live in a political world
Where courage is a thing of the past
Houses are haunted, children are unwanted
The next day could be your last.

We live in a political world.
The one we can see and can feel
But there's no one to check, it's all a stacked deck,
We all know for sure that it's real.

We live in a political world
In the cities of lonesome fear,
Little by little you turn in the middle
But you're never why you're here.

We live in a political world
Under the microscope,
You can travel anywhere and hang yourself there
You always got more than enough rope.

We live in a political world
Turning and a'thrashing about,
As soon as you're awake, you're trained to take
What looks like the easy way out.

We live in a political world
Where peace is not welcome at all,
It's turned away from the door to wander some more
Or put up against the wall.

We live in apolitical world
Everything is hers or his,
Climb into the frame and shout God's name
But you're never sure what it is.
