Let's get personal

I have not left my home since Friday. The normal swelling I endure may not be normal.  I will not know until Friday. Friday is my pay date.

I write tonight because I am part of the 47%   I earn enough to not qualify for any governmental program.  However the cost of health insurance for myself is too high.  My state has yet to institute the insurance exchange.

I often write President Obama does not walk on water but he does get what 47% of Americans need. Mitt will continue to support corporations that screw over the American worker. 

Example of screwing the worker: company employs a person on contract.  Company offers no benefits to employee.  Company gets tax credits.  Employee unable to claim any deductions for employee is listed as a W2. 

Example of screwing the worker : to save $9/HR in labor costs city outsources certain functions. It seems the main reason to outsource are employee benefits. The theme benefits are the selling point for outsourcing. Why did universal healthcare fail in America? s

Not another gun violence blog post

It is simple in my view, we have a problem.  We must ask why are assault weapons, weapons that spray when fired, required in civilian life.  I am not against gun ownership. I do question those who are arming themselves with weapons more suited for battle than stopping home invasion.  Are these people expecting the American government to attack them? Why?

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.
