The Past Decade Was the Best of Times and the Worst of Times PDF Print E-mail

The past decade can best be described by this quote from Charles Dickens: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way."


The past decade will be remembered by future generations for 9/11 and the collapse of the world's financial system. It will be remembered as a time of greediness; it will be remembered as a time of great despair. It will be remembered as a time of great financial gains; it will be remembered as a time of devastating financial losses.

It is No Longer Safe to Outsource Jobs to India PDF Print E-mail

The Thanksgiving Eve Massacre in Mumbai, India on November 26, 2008 proved one thing. It proved that terrorists in “Third World Countries” hate Americans, they hate our way of life, and they want us dead. If you don't see that, you really need to wake up. As the world watched those well trained terrorists walk through buildings in Mumbai searching specifically for American and British travelers, their intent was obvious and their goals were clear. The attack was an attack on the American and British ways of life.

American and British companies that outsourced jobs to India over the last thirty years deserve much of the blame for the massacre in Mumbai on Thanksgiving Eve. American and British companies have for years exploited cheap labor in India and many other countries. Much of the population of these countries resent America's influence on their daily lives. What happened in Mumbai may only be the start of a new and much more dangerous era of terrorism targeting American citizens.

Health Insurance Premiums Have Risen More Than 1600% Since 1985 PDF Print E-mail

In 1985 I paid $20 a month for family health insurance. Today I pay over $350 a month for roughly the same coverage. If you do the math {((350-20)/20)*100 = 1650%}, that is a premium increase of 1650% over the past twenty-four years. By comparison, in 1985, the cost of gasoline was around $1.20 a gallon on the East Cost. If the cost of gasoline had increased 1650% over the last twenty-four years, we would all pay around $21 a gallon today on the East Cost for gasoline. Just consider the financial burden that $21 a gallon gasoline would cause on the average American family. So, how is it then that we allow the Health Insurance Industry to levy such astronomical premium increases on the health and well-being of our families? Well, the time has come to end this strong-arm approach used by health insurance companies and the way to do that is for Congress to pass a Health Care Reform Bill that includes a Strong Public Option.

No matter what health insurance companies say, they are part of the problem and not part of the solution. Health insurance companies have no intension of reducing the ridiculously high salaries they pay their executives. They have no interest in lowering premiums or expanding coverage to all Americans. Health insurance companies are in business for one reason only, to make large profits for their share holders. And make profits they do.

Consider for a moment how the current health care system model stifles entrepreneurship in this country. Potential entrepreneurs and potential small

American companies have repeatedly outsourced American jobs to Third World countries for over twenty years now. That practice has been amplified over the last eight years. Factory jobs were the first to go, but over the last
