David Glenn Cox -- World News Trust
July 19, 2010 -- We all know in the long history of our great nation that truly the most vile and wicked President to ever hold the keys to the Oval Office was Richard Nixon.
Nixon was such a liar that he had to get strangers to call his dogs for him. Harry Truman once said of Nixon, “Richard Nixon is a no good, lying bastard. He can lie out of both sides of his mouth at the same time, and if he ever caught himself telling the truth, he'd lie just to keep his hand in.”
After a deep-water oil rig blew out almost three miles beneath the ocean surface and leaked three million barrels of oil off the California coast, that low-life Nixon visited the area.
"It is sad that it was necessary that Santa Barbara should be the example that had to bring it to the attention of the American people. What is involved is the use of our resources of the sea and of the land in a more effective way and with more concern for preserving the beauty and the natural resources that are so important to any kind of society that we want for the future. The Santa Barbara incident has frankly touched the conscience of the American people."
That’s the best that lousy Nixon could do, saying “Sorry, we won’t let it happen again.” Then Nixon signed a moratorium outlawing deep-water oil drilling below 500 feet. For 41 years that damn Nixon moratorium stood, until an enlightened president came along who suddenly understood the importance of deep water drilling, even if he hadn’t understand it on the campaign trail. That’s called growing into the job!
In March of 1969, Richard Nixon did something unprecedented by American Presidents, he ordered secret bombings of a neutral state. The U.S. Air Force began to bomb Cambodia in what was called "Operation Breakfast." There should be no comparison drawn to last month's U.S. cruise missile strike in Yemen. Nixon was a lying son of a bitch and Obama is a great leader, and the 26 women and children killed would tell you that, if they hadn’t been blown to pieces.
Each cruise missile cost the taxpayers $600,000, or about the price of twelve schoolteachers' salaries. Our $600,000 killed 53 terrorists including women and children for a kill cost ratio of $11,538 each. Nixon was a lying bastard and the world and Congress condemned this kind of illegal activity by a President. That is why we can look back now with a sigh of relief, because that son of a bitch is gone and now replaced by a true leader who isn’t afraid to ramp up Predator drone attacks in Pakistan.
Even when criticized by know-nothings at the UN and in the Pakistani government, our great leader perseveres undaunted with 134 attacks this year alone!
“The (UN) report also says the covert nature of the CIA program in Pakistan is in breach of the rules governing accountability. The U.S. government refuses to release any information about the CIA program, but its widely believed the drone aircraft mostly used in Pakistan are operated remotely by CIA staff from the agency's Langley headquarters in Virginia.”
Yeah, but the United States says it is entitled to carry out such strikes under laws of self-defense and the laws of war.
"Because the CIA program remains shrouded in official secrecy, the international community does not know when and where the CIA is authorized to kill, the criteria for individuals who may be killed, how it ensures killings are legal, and what follow-up there is when civilians are illegally killed."
Pussies. Don’t they know this man won the Nobel Peace Prize? When Nixon did it, it was because he was a lying bastard, and when Bush did it he was a psychotic mental case. Obama is our leader and he’s fighting terrorism and al-Queada and that’s what millions of us voted for. Hope and Change and more killing and bombing. You know, changing the way we do business in Washington.
In July of 1969 that low-life Nixon announced the Nixon Doctrine whereby the United States would provide arms and aid -- but not military forces -- to its Asian allies. Thank God we got rid of that bullshit, huh! Not send troops. Don’t be ridiculous, we have a leader now who is not afraid to send troops and if need be to send more and even more because that’s what being a true Democratic leader is all about these days.
Then Nixon announces a plan to establish the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Thanks a lot, Dick. Guess who is underfoot now while BP is trying to clean up their little leak. Thank God we have the Coast Guard to keep those meddling reporters away!
That Nixon, just when you think he couldn’t get any worse, he up and surprises you. Nixon wanted to reform healthcare in America and being the slimy dog Republican that he was he was trying to force people into private healthcare groups, or HMOs. Just look at the crap this joker was trying to peddle to the American public.
“Upon adoption of appropriate Federal and State legislation, the Comprehensive Health Insurance Plan would offer to every American the same broad and balanced health protection through one of three major programs:
"--Employee Health Insurance, covering most Americans and offered at their place of employment, with the cost to be shared by the employer and employee on a basis which would prevent excessive burdens on either;
"--Assisted Health Insurance, covering low-income persons, and persons who would be ineligible for the other two programs, with Federal and State government paying those costs beyond the means of the individual who is insured; and,
"--An improved Medicare Plan, covering those 65 and over and offered through a Medicare system that is modified to include additional, needed benefits.
"One of these three plans would be available to every American, but for everyone participation in the program would be voluntary.
"The benefits offered by the three plans would be identical for all Americans, regardless of age or income. Benefits would be provided for:
"--Physicians' care in and out of the hospital;
"--Prescription and life-saving drugs;
"--Laboratory tests and X-rays;
"--Ambulance services; and,
"--Other ancillary health care.
"There would be no exclusions of coverage based on the nature of the illness. For example, a person with heart disease would qualify for benefits, as would a person with kidney disease. (Preexisting conditions)
"In addition, CHIP would cover treatment for mental illness, alcoholism and drug addiction, whether that treatment was provided in hospitals and physicians' offices or in community-based settings.
"Certain nursing home services and other convalescent services would also be covered. For example, home health services would be covered so that long and costly stays in nursing homes could be averted where possible.
"The health needs of children would come in for special attention, since many conditions, if detected in childhood, can be prevented from causing lifelong disability and learning handicaps. Included in these services for children would be:
"--Preventive care up to age six;
"--Hearing examinations; and,
"--Regular dental care up to age 13.
"Under the Comprehensive Health Insurance Plan, a doctor's decisions could be based on the health care needs of his patients, not on health insurance coverage. This difference is essential for quality care.
"Every American participating in the program would be insured for catastrophic illnesses that can eat away savings and plunge individuals and families into hopeless debt for years. No family would ever have annual out-of-pocket expenses for covered health services in excess of $1,500, and low-income families would face substantially smaller expenses.
"As part of this program, every American who participates in the program would receive a Health-card when the plan goes into effect in his State. This card, similar to a credit card, would be honored by hospitals, nursing homes, emergency rooms, doctors, and clinics across the country. This card could also be used to identify information on blood type and sensitivity to particular drugs-information which might be important in an emergency.
"Bills for the services paid for with the Health-card would be sent to the insurance carrier who would reimburse the provider of the care for covered services, then bill the patient for his share, if any.
"The entire program would become effective in 1976, assuming that the plan is promptly enacted by the Congress."
Thank God that pos never made it through Congress. We’ve got Real Healthcare reform now!
"Would expand coverage to 32 million Americans who are currently uninsured.
"Health Insurance Exchanges:
"The uninsured and self-employed would be able to purchase insurance through state-based exchanges with subsidies available to individuals and families with income between the 133 percent and 400 percent of poverty level.
"Separate exchanges would be created for small businesses to purchase coverage -- effective 2014.
"Funding available to states to establish exchanges within one year of enactment and until January 1, 2015.
"Individuals and families who make between 100 percent-400 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and want to purchase their own health insurance on an exchange are eligible for subsidies. They cannot be eligible for Medicare, Medicaid and cannot be covered by an employer. Eligible buyers receive premium credits and there is a cap for how much they have to contribute to their premiums on a sliding scale.
"Federal Poverty Level for family of four is $22,050.
"Paying for the Plan:
"Medicare Payroll tax on investment income -- Starting in 2012, the Medicare Payroll Tax will be expanded to include unearned income. That will be a 3.8 percent tax on investment income for families making more than $250,000 per year ($200,000 for individuals).
"Excise Tax -- Beginning in 2018, insurance companies will pay a 40 percent excise tax on so-called "Cadillac" high-end insurance plans worth over $27,500 for families ($10,200 for individuals). Dental and vision plans are exempt and will not be counted in the total cost of a family's plan.
"Tanning Tax -- 10 percent excise tax on indoor tanning services.
"Closes the Medicare prescription drug "donut hole" by 2020. Seniors who hit the donut hole by 2010 will receive a $250 rebate.
"Beginning in 2011, seniors in the gap will receive a 50 percent discount on brand name drugs. The bill also includes $500 billion in Medicare cuts over the next decade."
That’s what I’m talking about. Thank God we got rid of that low-life Nixon and got real reform! Real progressive politics. Real Progressive, man! Real Progressive!
