ObamaCare Premiums from 2009 to the present day!

According to an article in the Investors Business Daily, "The average employer-provided family health
insurance premiums have climbed $2,976 since 2009, according to an annual Kaiser Family Foundation survey released this week. They're up $3,671 compared with the year before President Obama took office. That's despite Obama's repeated promises that the health care reform law he championed would cut premiums by $2,500 in his first term."

You have to love a few of the comments which followed:
  • You think ObamaCare is good now, wait til it's free!
  • It could also usher in an era of you selling your neighbors eggs and home made soap from little red wagons. 
  • My son's health care insurance for him, his wife and 5 kids just increased $2,400 a year. That's a $200 a month jump over what he was paying.
  • I have notice substantial increases to my costs, as well. I was fortunate enough to earn a hefty raise, but with rising prices, healthcare costs, and other increases in cost of living my raise is hardly noticeable. Any experts talking about a recovery are living in fantasy land. A single meal at a fast food burger joint costs $7 - $10 if you don't order off a value menu. Grocery prices are way up. Retailers are starting Christmas promotions in August.
  • It's cheaper to go without health insurance now, thanks Obama, you gunky!
  • I actually heard the President say yesterday that he "saved the auto industry, fixed a broken healthcare system, and reversed America's dependence on foreign oil". He said this with a straight face.
  • Elections have $$$$$$ consequences. HOPE everybody who voted for the charlatan and his cohort dems are happy now. 
  • My premium increased 229% over last year's premium! Blue Cross and Blue Shield of California.
  • Nobody owes you anything...it wouldn't fix what ails the "black community" anyway....you can thank LBJ for the "Great Society/War on Poverty" politics that began the destruction of the black family...
  • Racism is EVERYWHERE in this country. Especially against our president who people think everything his fault because he is African American.
That last one takes the cake. Was everything George Bush's fault because he was white? Please! President Obama was elected for TWO terms by a majority of the voting electorate. America has herself to blame by not holding their elected officials accountable for the promises they committed to. The race card is simply a diversion tactic used to avoid responsible, solution based behavior. Statistics are clear that our present reform is not working. Let's encourage our representatives to fix it before it becomes unrepairable!

The Thug Report!

The Thug Report is a website which "exists to raise public awareness concerning the large cesspools of crime and violence in nearly every city in America which is making them virtually uninhabitable." It truly is the Drudge Report of Urban Crime News. One area features a section called "Thuggerific Videos" which links to various YouTube videos and other sources around the Web.

If you need more comprehensive information, you can also visit Crime in America.net.There you will find various links for information on crime, crime statistics, crime rates, violent crime, crime news, and crime prevention.

If you love Maps, head on over to SpotCrime.com for the "most comprehensive online source of crime information". Once there you are able to search by address. A Google map promptly floods your screen with tiny icons representing recent arrests, arson, assaults, burglaries, robberies, shootings, thefts, and vandalism.

This is a perfect example of the internet being used for a good and noble purpose. Remember, information is power and many eyes watching make for safer neighborhoods. Together we can make a difference.
