Think!

NOTE:  The following have all come from email sent to the Jefferson County Beer Party.  It is not known whether the statements contained of each of the following emails are correct, or have been proven otherwise.  It really doesn’t matter because each has its own special message that should make you, the reader, think.  Now it’s understood that some people are so dead set in their ways that independent thinking may be a real challenge for them, but we try anyway.  Good luck.

Read the report carefully.  This person wasn’t the least bit interested in acquiring a job; rather, she simply wanted an excuse to sue the community.  In other words, in a nation that gave her a safe place to live, she found it apparently appropriate to attempt to defraud that nation.  The Jefferson County Beer Party congratulates those people in that community who saw through her little ruse and found a viable solution to prevent it.

Subject:  Timely about Trump

The Complaint:
“Last night a friend claimed that Donald Trump wouldn’t make a good president; he is brash, he is racist, he is a loudmouth; you know the normal things people learn to recite after being programmed by television news.  The one I loved  was that, Trump is arrogant?  My friend questioned if one man could make that much difference in the world today?  To my friend’s credit, she was respectful enough to let me respond when she asked, “Really, what has Trump done?” 

I said, “In June of last year, Trump entered the race for president.  In just a little over a year, Trump has single-handedly defeated the Republican party.  He did so thoroughly.  In fact, he did so in such a resounding way that the Republican Party now suffers from an identity crisis.  He literally dismantled the party.  Trump even dismantled and dismissed the brand and value of the Bush family.  Trump has Obama petrified that Trump will dismiss programs that weren’t properly installed using proper law.

Trump has single-handedly debunked and disemboweled any value of news media as we knew it.  The news is now suffering from an all-time level of distrust and disrespect. 

Trump has leaders from all over the world talking about him, whether good or bad.  Trust me, powerful men who have been president before weren’t liked by the global community.  I doubt Mikhail Gorbachev liked Reagan when Reagan said, “Tear down that wall.”

Trump has expressly disclosed the fraud perpetrated on the American public by Hillary Clinton.  He has, quite literally, brought Hillary to her knees, if you believe that nervous tension and disorders offer physical side effects and damage.

Trump has unified the silent majority in a way that should be patently frightening to liberals.

    As the press accuses Trump of being a house of cards, Trump has proven the press is the real house of cards.  He has whipped up the entire establishment into pure panic.  Trump has exposed them for who they are and worse, what they are.  George Clooney was right when he said Trump draws live news coverage of his podium that he’s not yet approached.  Thanks, George, you were perfectly correct.

What we see as headline news today are actually the last bubbles from the ship that is now sunk, meaning the standard news media, as a propaganda machine, has been exposed.  They have no more value.

    In the same way Trump asked the African-American community this question, I asked my friend, “At this point, what do you have to lose?”  We have mass cop shootings, riots in our streets, ambushed cops, double-digit inflation, bombs blowing up in our cities, targeted police, #BLM, a skyrocketing jobless rate, no economic growth, privately owned land being seized by the federal government, the worst racial tension in my lifetime, no God in schools, more abortions that ever, illegal aliens pouring into our country, sick veterans receiving no care, and a debt that doubled in  seven years to $19 trillion.  Are you really happy with the condition of the current system?

    One man has done all of this in one year, one guy, and on his own dime.  And with everything I’ve written above, you believe Trump hasn’t done anything?  You claim that you are afraid of Donald Trump?  No wonder we’re in trouble.  You can say that Trump is a lousy presidential candidate.  That’s your right.  Just don’t ever say he’s not effective!

    That Megan Kelly, FOX News, CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post, Rachel Maddow, the Huffington Post, the New York Times, Raleigh’s News and Observer, the AP, Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, and many more, failed to implement their collectively orchestrated lie on the American people against Trump, is actually a massive testament to Trump.  The press colluded pure propaganda to accomplish his demise, and they have collectively failed and miserably.

Here’s just one example of how badly America is injured right now.  There are high school football players on their knees during the national anthem simply because the press used as propaganda to program those kids to do that very thing.  But, these kids are mimicking NFL stars the same way the same kids chooses which brand of football shoe to purchase.  They’re overtly brain-washed to do that very thing.

    Now, we have a generation of children who hate America.  America’s problem isn’t that little children are on their knee in collective disrespect of America.  Our problem is that America is on her knee from collective disrespect by Americans.  You can disrespect America all you want.  But, it’s high-time you respect the silent majority.   Because they’re not simply the ‘silent majority’ as you’ve been trained to believe when Hillary calls them ‘deplorables’.  The fact is, they are simply the majority.  And now they’re no longer silent either.

Donald Trump changed all of that, single-handedly and within one year! 

REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!!!

Subject:  54 Year Old Engineer & ObamaCare

I’m a 54-year old consulting engineer and make between $60,000 and $125,000 per year, depending on how hard I work and whether or not there are work projects out there for me.  My girlfriend is 61 and makes about $18,000 per year, working as a part-time mail clerk.
 
For me, making $60,000 a year, under ObamaCare, the cheapest, lowest grade policy I can buy, which also happens to impose a $5,000 deductible, costs $482 per month.  For my girlfriend, the same exact policy, same deductible, costs $1 per month.  That’s right, $1 per month.  I’m not making this up.  Don’t believe me?  Just go to http://www.coveredca.gov/ , the  ObamaCare website for California and enter the parameters I’ve mentioned above and see for yourself.  By the way, my zip code is 93940.  You’ll need to enter that.
 
So OK, clearly ObamaCare is a scheme that involves putting the cost burden of healthcare onto the middle and upper-income wage earners.  But there’s a lot more to it.  Stick with me.  And before I make my next points, I’d like you to think about something:
 
I live in Monterey County, in Central California.  We have a large land mass but just 426,000 residents – about the population of Colorado Springs or the city of Omaha.  But we do have a large Hispanic population, including a large number of illegal aliens, and to serve this group we have Natividad Medical Center, a massive, Federally-subsidized county medical complex that takes up an area about one-third the size of the Chrysler Corporation automobile assembly plant in Belvedere, Illinois (per Google Earth).  Natividad has state-of-the-art operating rooms, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging, fully equipped, 24 hour emergency room, and much more.
 
If you have no insurance, if you’ve been in a drive-by shooting or have overdosed on crack cocaine, this is where you go.  And it’s essentially free, because almost everyone who ends up in the ER is uninsured.
 
Last year, 2,735 babies were born at Natividad.  32% of these were born to out-of-wedlock teenage mothers, 93% of which were Hispanic.  Less than 20% could demonstrate proof of citizenship, and 71% listed their native language as Spanish.  Of these 876 births, only 40 were covered under [any kind of] private health insurance.  The taxpayers paid for the other 836.  And in case you were wondering about the entire population – all 2,735 births – less than 24% involved insured coverage or  even partial payment on behalf of the patient to the hospital in exchange for services.  Keep this in mind as we move forward.
 
Now consider this:  If I want to upgrade my policy to a low-deductible premium policy, such as what I had with my last employer, my cost is $886 per month.  But my girlfriend can upgrade her policy to the very same level, for just $4 per month.  That’s right, $4 per month. $48 per year for a zero-deductible, premium healthcare policy – the kind of thing you get when you work at IBM (except of course, IBM employees pay an average of $170 per month out-of-pocket for their coverage).
 
I mean, it’s bad enough that I will be forced to subsidize the ObamaCare scheme in the first place.  But even if I agreed with  the basic scheme, which of course I do not, I would never agree to subsidize premium policies.  If I have to pay $482 a month for a budget policy, I sure as hell do not want the guy I’m subsidizing to get a better policy, for less than 1% of what I have to fork out each month for a low-end policy.  Why must I pay $482 per month for something the other guy gets for a dollar?  And why should the other guy get to buy an $886 policy for $4 a month?
 
Think about this:  I have to pay $10,632 a year for the same thing that the other guy can get for $48.  $10,000 of net income is 60 days of full-time work as an engineer; $48 is something I could make collecting aluminum cans and plastic bottles, one day a month.
 
Are you with me on this? Are you starting to get an idea what ObamaCare is really about?  ObamaCare is not about dealing with inequities in the healthcare system.  That’s just the cover story.  The real story is that it is a massive, political power grab.  Do you think anyone who can insure himself with a premium policy for $4 a month will vote for anyone but the political party that provides him such a deal?  ObamaCare is about enabling, subsidizing, and expanding the Left’s political power base, at taxpayer expense.
 
Why would I vote for anyone but a Democrat if I can have babies for $4 a month?  For that matter, why would I go to college or strive for a better job or income if it means I have to pay real money for healthcare coverage?  Heck, why study engineering when I can be a schlub for $20K per year and buy a new F-150 with all the money I’m saving?
 
And think about those $4-a-month babies – think in terms of propagation models.  Think of just how many babies will be born to irresponsible, under-educated mothers.  Will we get a new crop of brain surgeons and particle physicists from the dollar baby club, or will we need more cops, criminal courts and prisons?  One thing you can be certain of:  At $4 a month, they’ll multiply, and multiply, and multiply.
 
ObamaCare: It’s all about political power.
Remember folks, November 2016 is just around the corner.  If you want to continue this kind of redistribution of wealth, then don’t “print” this email.  But if you are sick and tired of the money grab by the current administration, then “print” this email for everyone to see.  VOTE IN 2016!
