trick or treat obama style

With the Obama plan to spread the wealth this could be the future of halloween. Watch this hilariously funny video.

Obama friendly choice for unions

There’s been lots of talk about Obama doing nothing much to move any major initiatives during his tenure as a senator. A democratic house, senate, and Presidency will change the laws that are approved. Before you vote Obama, consider the implications.

Obama has been quiet about the source of his campaign funding. I don’t know anything much about that, other than reportedly he has taken double and triple the donations as McCain from Wall Street businesses. I would expect the same of unions, which traditionally back any candidate that supports their initiatives. But are their goals the best for our country? Read on.

Here’s an important message from my good friend Barb:
“This is exactly what brought down the largest corporations in America – GM, Chrysler, Eastern Airlines, and have made American goods too expensive to compete in a global economy. And this liberal wants to give them a much larger hold on the country, ensuring that we will never compete in a global economy. 

These O followers must be unbelievably stupid to not see how that is going to cost hundreds of thousand of jobs, and close businesses across the country. If they can’t see the reason for the layoff now, I guess they will just have to experience it for themselves. But it is doubtful that the “factory mentality” worker will really see the reason for the downfall of these businesses – way to high labor costs crippling any competitive edge that the business might create.

We will just all have to own our own businesses, with no employees.

Attached is a summary (an article from yesterday’s WSJ) of what will happen when the Socialists gets into power. Spread the word!”

compare Obama and McCain health care plans

This is a great way to
compare Obama and McCain health care plans with easy side by side comparison.

Here’s a few of my own notes on health care in response to some of Obama’s statements:
Everyone in America already has access to health care. It’s a terrible solution, but anyone can go to ER and get care whether they have money or not. So let’s take out of the equation that someone cannot get access to any health care.

In Florida we have a program called Florida KidCare. Florida KidCare is the state’s children’s health insurance program for uninsured children under age 19. No child needs to be without health care if their family can’t afford. Again, not the greatest solution, but I wouldn’t expect any national health plan to be better than this either.

Obama wants to invest $50 billion toward adoption of electronic medical records and other HIT. Given the governments track record on protecting our data, and purchasing of ‘global’ software solutions, I want no part in investing in government solution. The private sector is much more likely to do this cheaper, get the health care industry to help pay for it, and get the project done faster.

Obama would require employers to provide seven paid sick days per year. The businesses that can afford this generally pay their employees already, whether it’s stated on the books or not. I know this because I’ve benefited from it. The rule book said one thing, but when it came down to it, if the company was doing well, the boss paid you if you were sick, whether you had sick days coming or not. Many small businesses give one week paid vacation to new hires. This more than doubles that. Believe me, I feel for those who get sick and need the money. But the burden on businesses is too great to demand it.
