When I was in elementary school, and teachers would ask us what we wanted to be when we grew up, the answer was usually “an astronaut!” and then we would get asked what ELSE we would want to be in case the space career didn’t work out. Then the responses were fire fighter, police officer, or teacher. All of which are government employees. When we got older and realized there were a whole lot more choices out there, it was still understood that a job with the government would provide good pay, good benefits, and a good future with job security.

The purpose of this open memorandum is to give the addressed audience the background behind one of the Supreme Court’s most critical rulings in determining how political speech can and will be voiced in the United States, as well who will be afforded this microphone for such speech. It is important to know background behind the legislation that was created that led to this decision, the fallout in terms of the tremendous influx and rise of corporate and individual contributions to super PACs and the infinite rise of dark contributions that are without disclosure, identity, or known motive to become prevalent in today’s political marketplace.

The horrifying implications of today’s Supreme Court decision (BURWELL, SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, ET AL. v. HOBBY LOBBY STORES, INC.) is an incredible shattering of a women’s protection of privacy and personal choice. However, this gut wrenching and mind boggling decision’s true repercussions are yet to be fully realized. This awful and obviously flawed decision can easily be construed to now branch off into a myriad of arbitrary “religious or person choices” that a company will be able to impose on its employees. This will open the flood gates for a huge variety of other lawsuits by companies to justify their will to take away rights from their workers. This will also create a flurry of suits and challenges against the ADA. If one part of the ADA can be challenged […]

The 2014 State of the Union Address was a good one where President Obama pointed out the many hard fought improvements during the previous year of his administration. Many of which fell short of the original promise, but there was progress to be had. Progress was made in spite of efforts of the GOP, which has stuck to their hard line mantra of opposing President Obama and democrats no matter what the particular issue of the day is. President Obama’s displeasure with the lack of cooperation and compromise rose up a few times during the State of the Union address. To this President Obama boldly said that he will no longer wait for the cooperation and compromise from the GOP if there were not obvious signs they would support an initiative. […]

One of the biggest stories going on right now with the rough beginning of Obamacare is the news that hundreds of thousands, and in the coming years, millions of Americans are going to have their healthcare insurance canceled. On the surface, this seems like a huge blow to those that thought that Obamacare was going to help them. The irony is, these cancellations do help them. Here’s how:
A large portion of these healthcare insurance cancellations are due to the fact that the healthcare policies that these people have are now illegal under Obamacare. They do not meet the minimum coverage guidelines set by Obamacare, the Affordable Healthcare Act. In fact these people should probably be happy about Obamacare because the new regulations stop these policies from being issued which do not cover what insured Americans think they cover. […]

Whether you are a lover or a hater of Obamacare, the Health Care Insurance Marketplaces opened up today. Obamacare, officially known as the Affordable Care Act, is a law that was signed by President Parack Obama on March 23, 2010.
The ACA aims to increase the quality and affordability of Health insurance, lower the uninsured rate by expanding public and private insurance coverage, and reduce the cost of healthcare for individuals and the government.
Few measures of Obamacare have been put into place yet, but the biggest step in getting the ACA up and running went into effect today, the Open Healthcare Insurance Marketplace.
The Open Health Care Insurance Marketplace is the main way in which Obamacare hopes to tackle many of these stated goals.
