Corporate Tax

Posted in My Thoughts on December 9, 2011 by spikestl

Raising Taxes on corporations… Think about that for a second.
Only two things exist in business, Cost and Profit.

If you raise a company’s Cost ( wages, supplies, rent, and Taxes ), they have to raise the price to make a profit.
If you can’t make a profit why be in business?

In fact actually no company anywhere pays taxes, they All pass that cost on to the consumer.

National Health care, My Personal Story

Posted in Health Control, My Thoughts with tags , , on March 22, 2010 by spikestl

Well… with 70% of America opposed to Obama Care ( Health Control ) They passed it anyway.
I was hoping I wouldn’t Have to post this, I’ve been writing it for a while….

Americans have no idea what national health care is like. Health care is health care right? Every doctor and nurse is going to do the best job they can. They don’t want people to suffer or die. Right?

Well if the Doctors and Nurses are the same, why is there a difference in the care that you receive. Is there a difference?

A survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.
Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:
U.S. 65%
England 46%
Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:
U.S. 93%
England 15%
Canada 43%

Americans visit other country’s on vacation and hopefully never see an emergency room. The only way to know what health care is like in another country is to live there for awhile….SO.
A little Info about me.

I joined the United States Air Force in 1985. After Training I was stationed in England. I liked england a lot, I still do. I met a local girl, fell in love,and got married.
The Air Force is different from the Army, Marines,and Navy. In the Air Force, if you want to stay someplace for a while it was relatively easy. I was stationed at R.A.F. Woodbridge, England for 6 years before moving to Khobar Towers Saudi Arabia, and Myrtle Beach A.F.B South Carolina.
We have three children.

The first, my only daughter, was born under the British National Health System, because the hospital was in the town we lived in, and My A.F. Base didn’t have a hospital, just a clinic. The nearest USAF hospital was more than 50 miles away, and besides my wife is British so it wasn’t going to cost us any money.

My first son was born under the american medicade system, at a time when I was unfortunately  unemployed.

My second son was born under Chrysler / uaw ( “Cadillac” thanks Nancy Pelosi ) Health care insurance.

The difference between the three is interesting. Chrysler Health insurance is the gold standard. Hospital of our choice. Doctor of our choice. Multiple ultrasounds. any and all tests. Semi-private room. And because of an emergency c-section She spent 5 days in the hospital.

With the Medicade system. We had No choice of Doctor. No choice of Hospital. Medicare allowed only the minimum tests and ultra sound. The Doctor we had was the same that delivered our son but she was inexperienced. The nursing staff treated us the way a cashier at a grocery store treats someone with food stamps. OK, I was unemployed, But does anyone DESERVE to be treated that way?

The British NHS…
My daughter was born in a british hospital in 6 hours without a doctor….Midwives are cheaper.
My daughter was my first child, we were young and I didn’t know any better. Yes there was a doctor on the ward. yes he was busy. No, my wife didn’t Need him….But isn’t that just luck?

Ipswich england has a population of about 140,000 with only one hospital.
In a recent news article my mother in law sent me says that the Ipswich hospital was losing its cardiac unit because it was too expensive. The government believes that the travel time of about an hour to the next cost-effective hospital is “acceptable”

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
U.S. 77%
England 40%
Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:
U.S. 71
England 14
Canada 18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low-income, who say they are in “excellent health”:
U.S. 12%
England 2%
Canada 6%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:
U.S. 90%
England 15%
Canada 43%

In 1996 My Father in law was told that he would need a hip replacement, So he was put on a waiting list.
At 65 he had a lot of life left in him, and my children couldn’t wait to see Grandpa, whether we went to england or they came to see us. As time Passed they had to sell their home because he could no longer climb the stairs.
Finally, after waiting seven years, Grandpa got the operation.
He died three days later from blood poisoning.
The doctor admitted that it was his fault.
You can’t sue the government for malpractice.

AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson has lashed out at charity work done by Bono and Bob Geldof, saying they should do it in private.

AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson has lashed out at charity work done by Bono and Bob Geldof, saying they should do it in private.
In his only Australian interview, the outspoken singer said he and his Grammy-winning band prefer to help in private with no press conferences.

“I do it myself, I don’t tell everybody I’m doing it,” Johnson said.

“I don’t tell everybody they should give money – they can’t afford it.

“When I was a working man I didn’t want to go to a concert for some bastard to talk down to me that I should be thinking of some kid in Africa.

“I’m sorry mate, do it yourself, spend some of your own money and get it done. It just makes me angry.”

Johnson said AC/DC’s aversion to playing at charity events goes back to turning down a slot at 1985’s Live Aid.

“Bob Geldof is a canny lad. He did what he thought was right at the time but it didn’t work,” he said. “The money didn’t go to poor people. It makes me mad when people try to use politics or charity for publicity.

“Do a charity gig, fair enough, but not on worldwide television.”

Matthew 6
Giving to the Needy
1″Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
2″So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 3But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

5″And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 6But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
