Early Oscar Predictions

The 86th Academy Awards voting process has begun. Until the nominations are announced on Jan. 16, 2014, Hollywood will be holding its collective breath. Provided below is a short summary of what you might expect to hear on that date. The highly emotional and compelling "12 Years a Slave" is the favorite for Best Picture, with "Gravity" hovering nearby in the #2 slot. In addition, "American Hustle" is a lock for a nom. "Hustle" has a cast of Oscar and critic favorites and is inspired by a true story from the recent past, a concept that Academy members are quite fond of and one that is reminiscent of last year’s "Argo." "Nebraska," a unique take on aging, and "Captain Phillips," a real-life pirate action thriller, are likely to receive nominations as well. Other movies that could garner nominations include "Her," "Inside Llewyn Davis," "Fruitvale Station," "The Wolf of Wall Street," "Saving Mr. Banks," "Philomena," "Blue Jasmine," "August: Osage County," "Dallas Buyers Club," and "The Book Thief."

Obamacare - More Like Obamacaid

Walk into a physician’s office that you don’t know and tell them you have Medicaid. See how far you get. Odds are you won’t get very far with the front desk attendant let alone see a doctor or a nurse. The reason for that is because most doctors don’t take Medicaid. It just doesn’t make financial sense. You see when you have a government run healthcare plan like Medicaid where there is a defined budget, the government must start to reduce payments to physicians to make up for wasteful spending everywhere else. When governments reduce payments, doctors opt out of Medicaid. According to Merrill Matthews, director of the Council for Affordable Health Insurance Obamacare will eventually be like Medicaid.

My New Year's Resolutions

I resolve to hold my feet to the fire to push, poke, and prod myself and others around me to get this country back to "Liberty and Justice for All." All people, any color, any size and ethnicity should be able to pursue their dreams. I resolve to hold my elected officials' feet to the fire to do what they said they were going to do when they ran for election. I resolve to make sure every legal vote counts by shining a light on those who think that any person on American soil with a heartbeat has the right to vote. They don’t! Our founding fathers didn’t give up their property, family and lives for us to spit on the Constitution. Join me in a New Year’s resolution to ensure that: We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. God Bless and Happy New Year! [more...]

Obamacare Provides Unfair Advantage to Big Labor

Virtually unnoticed and ignored by the media is the fact that big labor benefited tremendously from the deal struck last week to avoid the "catastrophic" fiscal cliff. The President abandoned his own concept of fairness, which of course is nothing more than a hypocritical one way street, in order to reward his big labor buddies and to ease the pressure they have asserted. The President clearly understood the displeasure of big labor with respect to Obamacare, and realized that he desperately needed to throw them a bone, and a big one at that! [more...]
