Nebraska given a free pass... Nelson sells his soul...Democrats divide country

A canary was used for hundreds of years as a early warning detector of grave danger from poison gas in mines. I use it to signify a similar situation in the political world.

Nelson secured full federal funding for his state to expand Medicaid coverage to all individuals below 133 percent of the federal poverty level. Other states must pay a small portion of the additional cost. He won concessions for qualifying nonprofit insurers and for Medigap providers from a new insurance tax, and was able to roll back cuts to health savings accounts

This far beyond the $300 million pork given to Louisiana for New Orleans and the graft that will come with that. This telling the other 49 states that they are not equal to Nebraska. The citizens of Nebraska are better than us. They don't have to pay and their businesses don't have to pay.

This has got to be unconstitutional. The last time we tried treating one state differently than other states.... some Free and some Slave...we wound up in a Civil War.

Refugees in the America get more than a citizen who paid social security

I got this from Jimmy M. I don't know how accurate it is but it sounds just stupid enough to be true.

If this is true this is an insult to all of us...

Get mad and pass it on - I don't know how, but maybe some good will come of this travesty.

If the immigrant is over 65, they can apply for SSI and Medicaid and get more than a woman on Social Security, who worked from 1944 until 2004.

She is only getting $791 per month because she was born in 1924 and there's a 'catch 22'.

It is interesting that the federal government provides a single refugee with a monthly allowance of $1,890.

Each can also obtain an additional $580 in social assistance, for a total of $2,470 a month.

This compares to a single pensioner, who after contributing to the growth and development of America for 40 to 50 years, can only receive a monthly maximum of $1,012 in old age pension and Guaranteed Income Supplement..

Maybe our pensioners should apply as refugees!

Consider sending this to all your American friends, so we can all be ticked off and maybe get the refugees cut back to $1,012 and the pensioners up to $2,470. Then we can enjoy some of the money we were forced to submit to the Government over the last 40 or 50 or 60 years.

Please forward to every American to expose what our elected politicians have been doing over the past years - to the over-taxed American.

Now this assumes that the refugee is actually not an illegal alien with fake papers. And if they are man and wife, is there additional money for him or her? And how about the children.

You know, the idea that we should be taking in the world's problems has come and gone. I feel sorry for these people, but they need to stay in their own country and fix their own problems. By bringing them in, in far too many cases, you wind up with people who don't want to assimilate and become a huge problem. Ask Europe and England about their problems with Muslims who are demanding special treatment in schools, law, etc.

Jesus is watching you

A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables when a voice in the dark said,

'Jesus knows you're here.'

He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight off, and froze.

When he heard nothing more , after a bit, he shook his head and continued.

Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard

'Jesus is watching you.'

Freaked out, he shined his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice.

Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot.

'Did you say that?' he hissed at the parrot.

'Yep', the parrot confessed, then squawked, 'I'm just trying to warn you that he is watching you.'

The burglar relaxed. 'Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?'

'Moses,' replied the bird.

'Moses?' the burglar laughed. 'What kind of people would name a bird Moses?'

'The kind of people that would name a Rottweiler Jesus.'

It's the sun, stupid

With snow falling at a 2 inches per hour rate in Washington, DC and two feet expected, perhaps some of our elected idiots can quit talking about man made global warming and do some research.

Dr. Kenneth Tapping....a solar researcher and project director for Canada's National Research Council....is worried about the sun. Solar activity comes in regular cycles, but the latest one is refusing to start. Sunspots have all but vanished, and activity is suspiciously quiet. The last time this happened was 400 years ago -- and it signaled a solar event known as a "Maunder Minimum," along with the start of what we now call the "Little Ice Age."

Researcher Dr. Timothy Patterson, director of the Geoscience Center at Carleton University, shares the concern. Patterson is finding "excellent correlations" between solar fluctuations, a relationship that historically, he says doesn't exist between CO2 and past climate changes. According to Patterson. we shouldn't be surprised by a solar link. "The sun [is] the ultimate source of energy on this planet," he says.

Such research dates back to 1991, when the Danish Meteorological Institute released a study showing that world temperatures over the past several centuries correlated very closely with solar cycles. A 2004 study by the Max Planck Institute found a similar correlation, but concluded the timing was only coincidental, as the solar variance seemed too small to explain temperature changes.

However, researchers at DMI continued to work, eventually discovering what they believe to be the link. The key factor isn't changes in solar output, but rather changes in the sun's magnetosphere A stronger field shields the earth more from cosmic rays, which act as "seeds" for cloud formation. The result is less cloud cover, and a warming planet. When the field weakens, clouds increases, reflecting more light back to space, and the earth cools off.


There you go. And no amount of lies and hoaxes can change that.
