“What other people think of me is none of my business.”

~~Wayne Dyer~~

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

~~Ralph Waldo Emerson~~

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe.

If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened.

But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

~~Friedrich Nietzsche~~

I think the reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself.

Supreme Court Rejects Challenge To The Patient Protection And Affordable Care Act

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Thursday, June 25, upheld the nationwide tax subsidies underpinning President Barack Obama‘s health care overhaul, rejecting a major challenge to the landmark law in a ruling that preserves health insurance for millions of Americans.

In a 6-3 decision, a decisive victory for President Obama, the Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the broad reach of the new healthcare law, ruling the government may continue to provide tax subsidies for low- and middle-income people who buy insurance nationwide, even in states that did not create an official insurance exchange of their own.

The conservative challenge to the law has been denied. It could have left more than 6 million Americans scrambling to pay for their coverage. It  has now been decided that what has become known as Obamacare, will stand.

The ruling is a crucial win for the Democratic White House, now that Republicans control the House and Senate. Had the high court ruled for the conservative challengers, it would have put the fate of the law in the hands of GOP leaders on Capitol Hill.The outcome was the second major victory for Obama in politically charged Supreme Court tests of his most significant domestic achievement. And it came the same day the court gave him an unexpected victory by preserving a key tool the administration uses to fight housing bias.

Something to think about …. “Rick Scott’s Veto Pen”!!

Gov. Scott wields his veto pen for political payback

BY PAULA DOCKERY

Just four days after the Florida Legislature passed the $78.7 billion state budget, Gov. Rick Scott, with no advanced notice, fanfare or public appearance quietly signed the budget behind closed doors. He didn’t confer with his partners in the process — fellow Cabinet members, legislative leaders and senators and representatives. Even his lieutenant governor was left in the dark.

Nor did he communicate with those who found themselves on the receiving end of his veto pen. Mayors, commissioners, university presidents and healthcare administrators were among those learning their fate online, through the news media or by word of mouth.

Scott vetoed $461 million of legislative spending, a personal record, or less than one percent of the budget.

There was mixed reaction to Scott’s vetoes and to the odd manner in which he performed what is arguably the governor’s most significant responsibility. Individual legislators were surprised to learn that he had completed the job without reaching out to them, as most governors traditionally do.

Scott deserves some criticism for the lack of public discourse, stakeholder involvement and transparency. Scott has — during past sessions — conferred with legislators on their budget priorities. But this session and special session were particularly acrimonious, with the governor siding with one chamber over the other.

Thoughts for today, #181 …. “Terrorists and their flags”!!


Flags

~~June 22, 2015~~ 

MEANING OF A FLAG

A flag is a piece of fabric (most often rectangular or quadrilateral) with a distinctive design that is used as a symbol, as a signaling device, or as decoration.

The first flags were used to assist military co-ordination on battlefields, and flags have since evolved into a general tool for rudimentary signalling and identification, especially in environments where communication is similarly challenging (such as the maritime environment where semaphore is used).

National flags are potent patriotic symbols with varied wide-ranging interpretations, often including strong military associations due to their original and ongoing military uses. Flags are also used in messaging, advertising, or for other decorative purposes.

The study of flags is known as vexillology, from the Latin word vexillum, meaning flag or banner.

REMEMBER …. THIS IS JUST SATIRE

Netanyahu Warns U.S. Against Iran Nuclear Deal

By Dan Williams and Matt Spetalnick

WASHINGTON, March 3 (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned the United States on Tuesday against agreeing to a nuclear deal with Iran and working with a country “deeply rooted in militant Islam,” saying Tehran “will always be an enemy of America.”

“If the deal now being negotiated is accepted by Iran, that deal will not prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons – it will all but guarantee that Iran will get those nuclear weapons – lots of them,” he said.

In the most anticipated speech to the US Congress by a foreign leader in years, Netanyahu said Iran’s regime was “as radical as ever,” could not be trusted and the deal being worked out with the United States would not block Iran’s way to a bomb “but paves its way to a bomb.”

“We must all stand together to stop Iran’s march of conquest, subjugation and terror,” he said.
