Give Medicare to mentally ill with no waiting period. Please sign this petition

This could really help our mentally ill population in this country who are now sorely uncared for.

"Give Medicare to the mentally ill with no waiting period. There is an epidemic of mass murders. Our prisons are overflowing with mentally ill patients. The number of mentally ill patients that are homeless is staggering.

We have to do a lot more.

But this is one politically acceptable solution that could be approved soon.
This is a first step, a step you could take in the presence of a highly divided political environment."

What would happen if they imposed a really high tax on guns and ammunition? I just checked and

you can buy ammo tax free on the internet. That is terrible. I think it should be taxed at least as high as cigarettes and maybe even higher. Guns should be taxes as much too.

Of course considering what people pay for their guns it won't stop much but it may stop some. Every little bit helps.

As long as the President enacts the laws that are on the books also.

R. Scott is trying to stop parts of Obamacare from coming to FL. Please sign this petition-MoveOn

http://signon.org/thanks.html?petition_id=27086&from_source=mo&id=-32096-Dgu4IO

Dear Florida MoveOn member,

Governor Rick Scott has been advocating against Obamacare provisions for Florida and its citizens. We need to tell Governor Scott and the Florida legislature to allow Obamacare for all of us.

That's why I created a petition on SignOn.org to the Florida State Legislature and Governor Rick Scott, which says:

Stop Governor Rick Scott from not allowing Florida citizens access to Obamacare!

OK I searched enough! Someone posted a a picture of a fertilized human egg along with

some other pictures that made the idea of life at conception look pretty ridicules. It was only within the last week or so. Maybe it had a picture of a fetus that turned out to be a fetus of an elephant of something.

Anyone?

My God am I depressed.

I usually go to my Mom's for a while at thanksgiving and she gives me a plate from her diner at her clubhouse. I could go to the clubhouse with her but I really don't like it much. They are all much older than me and while very nice to me it is just kind of boring.

So this is the year that we lost our business in NJ and my Mom is still stuck up there and has to wait until the 2 buildings are demolished until she and my step dad can come down to Florida. I went earlier to a clubhouse that I go to for people with mental illness and that was nice but it ended at 1pm. I've been sitting here since. I've tried to practice drawing, (they are nice enough to give us a free water color class which included some drawing which I suck at). But that took some time and determination.

I just haven't felt this low in a long time. It is so weird when things change. At first I was so worried about the money and the loss but now I just want my Mom. And I'm 54! I don't have any kids of my own. I feel like a little kid all by myself.

I think I may go down the street to some neighbors house and visit a little, just to get out of this house that seems to be swallowing me up.

Thanks for letting me rant here. I know people care.

Love to you all,

Maraya

To the people who want to boycott Microsoft and let the CEO know here is his direct email

ceooff@microsoft.com

I put it in the thread but I looked and it was way down. His secretary gave it to me. Please flood his email with your decision to boycott if you are going to do so.

And this is Bill Gates: billg@microsoft.com

See this post - Microsoft is threatening the Obama administration that is will send workers overseas if the tax hikes go through.

I have this comment by Rachel Maddow and then a right winger made a comment I don't know how to

respond to.




teamsters don"t seem to share your view, they took a similar deal and urged the baker's union to allow secret ballot...hummmm


Has anyone watched this movie "Thrive" and what did you think about it?

http://www.thrivemovement.com/

My cousin wants me to watch it. She insists that all politicians are controlled by the Federal reserve and by the big oil companies and it doesn't matter who you vote for. I wanted to know if anyone watched it first and if anyone knows of the movie makers or anything about them.

If this information came out before the election we would have one less GOP congress person

This is a petition and I hope you will sign it. I can't believe what this man is doing and I can't believe this is the first time I am hearing about it.

Target: Rep. Steve King
Sponsored by: Humane Society Legislative Fund

The influence of Iowa Rep. Steve King's extreme anti-animal views extends well beyond the borders of his home state. King led the fight to try to block legislation that would crack down on the barbaric practices of dogfighting and cockfighting nationwide, and has consistently voted against even the most basic protections for animals, such as including pets in disaster planning. He recently introduced an amendment to the Farm Bill seeking to nullify state and local laws dealing with animal welfare and food safety around the country!

Rep. King is one of the most senior Republican members of the powerful House Agriculture Committee. So many pieces of federal animal protection legislation go to this committee and can be held up by King and other enemies of animal protection. Given his powerful committee post, King's anti-animal positions affect animal welfare nationwide.

Florida recount begins in Allen West district

Source: MSNBC

The congressional race between Tea Party Rep. Allen West and Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy is getting uglier, with the St. Lucie county board kicking off a recount of all the early votes in the contest Saturday.

Murphy beat West on Election Day by a little more than 2,000 votes, placing his win beyond the .5% margin of victory trigger for an automatic recount

West, however, claimed there were voter irregularities and demanded a partial recount of early-voting ballots. When the recount of the last three-days of early voting lowered Murphy’s total by 667 votes and increased West’s results by 132, the incumbent’s lawyers demanded a full recount of all eight days of early voting, the Palm Beach Post reported.

The county canvassing board admitted that 306 votes—mostly filled with write-in candidates—had been uncounted, and that other votes had been ignored.
