Out Government's Competition Distaste

Take a gander at today's' headlines, and then review the household bills, one thing becomes self-evident: There is a desire to create monopolies on the agenda of our Government agencies.. Ever wonder why? Maybe control is easier if there is only one entity to oversee.....Hmmmmmmmmmmmm

Just to site a couple of examples, as there are many out there that won't/don't,or, never will, look at the news, or current events. Let's talk about phone service, land lines, I bet you didn't even think that there was only one available in your area; but , that is all that you can choose from.............How about cable, TV is marketed thru just one provider in a geographical area, so, you can't put the hammer onto your provider, to force his price down, again, another service monitored closely by the Government, in Washington. Now that really isn't the only ones you have to deal with, How many of you have a choice for who provides your area with Energy, Can you call ANY Power Company to get the required service you need? Nope, why? Ever ask yourself? Who's making all the cash here? Where is the oversight, bet there are any number of Congressional Oversight committees that regulate these services, why should there be any, if there is only one in an area to use?

So, we've talked about Cable, Power, Telephone, how about Schools, why can't there be choice there? Or better still, what is the Government plans for HealthCare? We already know Barney Frank (D-Mass) wants single payer, where everybody goes to Doctors, on somebody Else's dime (that dime, confiscated at the point of a gun). Now we get to hear about how GREAT their (Congresses), HealthCare service is. A Recent example, Sen Dodd(D-CT) has prostate cancer, I will pray for his recovery, so that the voters in CT can run him out of office(RAIN=Remove All Incumbents Now); that is beside the point, he made sure, when he announced his illness, to tell us how great his coverage is Why are We, the People, not getting the same coverage that he has, in this new 'Fast Track' bill- passing-hysteria? (Don't Forget Sen Teddy Kennedy, as if you could) I'll tell you, from my perspective, they don't want you to know what is in the bill, so the faster it is passed, the less you'll know........!!! HR 3200 (HealthCare Reform, again, not Insurance Supplement), pg 440, or thereabouts, refers to obese children, and how the Government WILL become part of that child's life, whether you like it, as a parent, or not. Monitoring intake, and forcing a change of lifestyle agenda, parent's rights' be durned, "Slippery Slope" a.k.a. incrementalism, ever heard that term before??(FYI, it is what got us to where we are today, Governmentally)

Are we paying attention? Are our elders going to find out that the hip replacement surgery, that costs $450,000 dollars, won't be available to anyone over 70 because the expected life time of that person is so short, and the cost divided by the the life-left, say 10 years, is $45,000/year. While a 50 year old, needing the same procedure, has another 30 years, so the life/cost is just $15000 yearly. You can see how they, the government, will justify denying the elderly this procedure, in this non-competitive, single payer solution, and granting others the okay.

We have so much to be thankful for with our Socialist/Democrat new-age- Government, it brings back memories of the movie 'Soylent Green', ever seen it? You should, how about ever read '1984'?, remember Winston? IT IS COMING........

Jefferson, not the TV show, but our founding father, Thomas, you know one of those rich, white, slave owners, that screwed everybody when designing this government, that we, today, so ardently are trying to destroy, said".....
"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those
who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
Thomas Jefferson
--------------------------------------and he said

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the
government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
Thomas Jefferson
--------------------------------------also, he said

"{My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.."
Thomas Jefferson

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Thomas Jefferson

Any of these ideas ring true, to you, today??

Remember, competition results in suppliers keeping costs reduced, and offering as much service to the consumer as is possible, at the lowest price, to BUY the consumers' business. Monopolies don't need to service, or provide more product in order to compete, they have a "Captured Marketplace, so the loser is.........

Guess we are due to repeat history,(what is the difference between current events, and history?) as no one is seeing what is happening before their own eyes.......Selah.....GSM
