The Far Right Has No Place in Any School System Around Children Period !!!

This is not sent in from any parent or concerned resident of Chester County, this is straight from the rants, and we are not worried about grammar here daily local dan, we are getting a point across.

We have seen these rants submitted from parents regarding the West Chester School Board Candidates over and over, and we have something to say here, and hopefully we speak for all children, as they are innocent and to young to vote.

No one that has the feelings of hate towards any one group should ever, ever, be in any place where children are involved.  Now, Sean Carpenter who has been seen protesting in public with a person who hates gay people and he himself  who hates gay people, should never, ever , be allowed to be on any school board.  What about the poor innocent child who may be gay?

I am sorry, but you can have your opinions, but you can not be on any board or office where children are involved.  How would a poor child who may be confused, and yes, there will be, and are, young children confused or scared about being gay or not,  however being so afraid to be able to be open about it, knowing the school they attend feels so strongly against it, will likely cause so many more problems.  Even others if they are gay, will hide it, and be afraid because the school they attend, is that what you may want your poor confused child to do instead of talk to you?  Think about it!

Come on parents, you can say or think what you want, but many parents are the last to know. If your child was gay and you did, or did not know, would you want the school board teaching hate against gay people ?  Would you want your child hated and depressed and worse contemplating suicide because you know the school he or she attends hates gays ??  There should never be so much hate against anyone period in school, isn’t that what we teach.

My children are grown as are many of the posters of Chester county rants, this does not affect us, but you as parents really need to think about this.  Your child whatever choice he or she may make in the future, there is no room for hate, period.  You can not have this on any school board or office, let alone any office or job.

Yes, and these protest signs they claim to be so innocent, Obama Bin Laden, they are not innocent, they are calling our President of the United States a terrorist or someone he is not, how many innocent people pay for this hatred?  How many children who know no hate for any race, will form a hatred because of this?

Right now President Obama is our President and you can not have a hate group on any school board against any race, or teaching hate against the President of The United States.

I would not want my grandchildren going to a school that called our President a terrorist, or was taught this hatred or racism as a tool in any school, he is our President, he is not Osama Bin Laden as the right school board candidates are calling him , and I want my grandchildren to know Obama, not Osama.

This is pathetic, I do not even know why the likes of Sean Carpenter and the other candidates would want to be school board members, but this is not the job for them, there are other things they could be doing, what I don’t know, maybe helping out in a soup kitchen over the holidays!!

I am sorry, but this can not be good, never, ever!

gun obama town hallAbout a dozen people carrying guns, including one with a military-style rifle, milled among protesters outside the convention center where President Barack Obama was giving a speech Monday — the latest incident in which protesters have openly displayed firearms near the president.

Gun-rights advocates say they’re exercising their constitutional right to bear arms and protest, while those who argue for more gun control say it could be a disaster waiting to happen.

About a dozen people carrying guns, including one with a military-style rifle, milled among protesters outside the convention center where President Barack Obama was giving a speech Monday — the latest incident in which protesters have openly displayed firearms near the president.

 Gun-rights advocates say they’re exercising their constitutional right to bear arms and protest, while those who argue for more gun control say it could be a disaster waiting to happen.  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32457652/ns/politics-white_house/

I am sorry, but this is just sick and crazy.  So what you have the  constitutional right,  if that is the case then why can’t we all carry loaded guns as long as their in the open and legal  into Court Houses ?  It’s so pathetic what these disturbed right wing gun toting people have come to.  I mean they couldn’t stand up for the war, or the tax cut for the wealthy, but yet these idiots have so much to say now, and off all things, about health care, this is a scary disturbed bunch and they need to be called on it.

A town hall meeting regarding health care where children may be is no place for guns, how many of you wack jobs would like a man entering your childs school because he has that right, its just sick and twisted, and in my book you are losing the cause here, your showing just how much mental help you people on the right need!!!!

One more thing, how would Newt Gingrich, or John Boehner feel if a dozen black men showed up with guns because they are legal and it’s their constitutional right, yeah, they would do everything in their power to have them arrested, and they probaly would be!!!!!

  Dear Friend,This is probably one of the longest emails I’ve ever sent, but it could be the most important.

Across the country we are seeing vigorous debate about health insurance reform. Unfortunately, some of the old tactics we know so well are back — even the viral emails that fly unchecked and under the radar, spreading all sorts of lies and distortions.

As President Obama said at the town hall in New Hampshire, “where we do disagree, let’s disagree over things that are real, not these wild misrepresentations that bear no resemblance to anything that’s actually been proposed.”

So let’s start a chain email of our own. At the end of my email, you’ll find a lot of information about health insurance reform, distilled into 8 ways reform provides security and stability to those with or without coverage, 8 common myths about reform and 8 reasons we need health insurance reform now.

Right now, someone you know probably has a question about reform that could be answered by what’s below. So what are you waiting for? Forward this email.

Thanks,
David

David Axelrod
Senior Adviser to the President

P.S. We launched www.WhiteHouse.gov/realitycheck this week to knock down the rumors and lies that are floating around the internet. You can find the information below, and much more, there. For example, we’ve just added a video of Nancy-Ann DeParle from our Health Reform Office tackling a viral email head on. Check it out:

Health Insurance Reform Reality Check

8 ways reform provides security and stability to those with or without coverage

  1. Ends Discrimination for Pre-Existing Conditions: Insurance companies will be prohibited from refusing you coverage because of your medical history.
  2. Ends Exorbitant Out-of-Pocket Expenses, Deductibles or Co-Pays: Insurance companies will have to abide by yearly caps on how much they can charge for out-of-pocket expenses.
  3. Ends Cost-Sharing for Preventive Care: Insurance companies must fully cover, without charge, regular checkups and tests that help you prevent illness, such as mammograms or eye and foot exams for diabetics.
  4. Ends Dropping of Coverage for Seriously Ill: Insurance companies will be prohibited from dropping or watering down insurance coverage for those who become seriously ill.
  5. Ends Gender Discrimination: Insurance companies will be prohibited from charging you more because of your gender.
  6. Ends Annual or Lifetime Caps on Coverage: Insurance companies will be prevented from placing annual or lifetime caps on the coverage you receive.
  7. Extends Coverage for Young Adults: Children would continue to be eligible for family coverage through the age of 26.
  8. Guarantees Insurance Renewal: Insurance companies will be required to renew any policy as long as the policyholder pays their premium in full. Insurance companies won’t be allowed to refuse renewal because someone became sick.

8 common myths about health insurance reform

  1. Reform will stop “rationing” – not increase it: It’s a myth that reform will mean a “government takeover” of health care or lead to “rationing.” To the contrary, reform will forbid many forms of rationing that are currently being used by insurance companies.
  2. We can’t afford reform: It’s the status quo we can’t afford. It’s a myth that reform will bust the budget. To the contrary, the President has identified ways to pay for the vast majority of the up-front costs by cutting waste, fraud, and abuse within existing government health programs; ending big subsidies to insurance companies; and increasing efficiency with such steps as coordinating care and streamlining paperwork. In the long term, reform can help bring down costs that will otherwise lead to a fiscal crisis.
  3. Reform would encourage “euthanasia”: It does not. It’s a malicious myth that reform would encourage or even require euthanasia for seniors. For seniors who want to consult with their family and physicians about end-of life decisions, reform will help to cover these voluntary, private consultations for those who want help with these personal and difficult family decisions.
  4. Vets’ health care is safe and sound: It’s a myth that health insurance reform will affect veterans’ access to the care they get now. To the contrary, the President’s budget significantly expands coverage under the VA, extending care to 500,000 more veterans who were previously excluded. The VA Healthcare system will continue to be available for all eligible veterans.
  5. Reform will benefit small business – not burden it: It’s a myth that health insurance reform will hurt small businesses. To the contrary, reform will ease the burdens on small businesses, provide tax credits to help them pay for employee coverage and help level the playing field with big firms who pay much less to cover their employees on average.
  6. Your Medicare is safe, and stronger with reform: It’s myth that Health Insurance Reform would be financed by cutting Medicare benefits. To the contrary, reform will improve the long-term financial health of Medicare, ensure better coordination, eliminate waste and unnecessary subsidies to insurance companies, and help to close the Medicare “doughnut” hole to make prescription drugs more affordable for seniors.
  7. You can keep your own insurance: It’s myth that reform will force you out of your current insurance plan or force you to change doctors. To the contrary, reform will expand your choices, not eliminate them.
  8. No, government will not do anything with your bank account: It is an absurd myth that government will be in charge of your bank accounts.  Health insurance reform will simplify administration, making it easier and more convenient for you to pay bills in a method that you choose.  Just like paying a phone bill or a utility bill, you can pay by traditional check, or by a direct electronic payment. And forms will be standardized so they will be easier to understand. The choice is up to you – and the same rules of privacy will apply as they do for all other electronic payments that people make.

8 Reasons We Need Health Insurance Reform Now

  1. Coverage Denied to Millions: A recent national survey estimated that 12.6 million non-elderly adults – 36 percent of those who tried to purchase health insurance directly from an insurance company in the individual insurance market – were in fact discriminated against because of a pre-existing condition in the previous three years or dropped from coverage when they became seriously ill. Learn more: http://www.healthreform.gov/reports/denied_coverage/index.html
  2. Less Care for More Costs: With each passing year, Americans are paying more for health care coverage. Employer-sponsored health insurance premiums have nearly doubled since 2000, a rate three times faster than wages. In 2008, the average premium for a family plan purchased through an employer was $12,680, nearly the annual earnings of a full-time minimum wage job.  Americans pay more than ever for health insurance, but get less coverage. Learn more: http://www.healthreform.gov/reports/hiddencosts/index.html
  3. Roadblocks to Care for Women: Women’s reproductive health requires more regular contact with health care providers, including yearly pap smears, mammograms, and obstetric care. Women are also more likely to report fair or poor health than men (9.5% versus 9.0%). While rates of chronic conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure are similar to men, women are twice as likely to suffer from headaches and are more likely to experience joint, back or neck pain. These chronic conditions often require regular and frequent treatment and follow-up care. Learn more: http://www.healthreform.gov/reports/women/index.html
  4. Hard Times in the Heartland: Throughout rural America, there are nearly 50 million people who face challenges in accessing health care. The past several decades have consistently shown higher rates of poverty, mortality, uninsurance, and limited access to a primary health care provider in rural areas. With the recent economic downturn, there is potential for an increase in many of the health disparities and access concerns that are already elevated in rural communities. Learn more: http://www.healthreform.gov/reports/hardtimes
  5. Small Businesses Struggle to Provide Health Coverage: Nearly one-third of the uninsured – 13 million people – are employees of firms with less than 100 workers. From 2000 to 2007, the proportion of non-elderly Americans covered by employer-based health insurance fell from 66% to 61%. Much of this decline stems from small business. The percentage of small businesses offering coverage dropped from 68% to 59%, while large firms held stable at 99%. About a third of such workers in firms with fewer than 50 employees obtain insurance through a spouse. Learn more: http://www.healthreform.gov/reports/helpbottomline
  6. The Tragedies are Personal: Half of all personal bankruptcies are at least partly the result of medical expenses. The typical elderly couple may have to save nearly $300,000 to pay for health costs not covered by Medicare alone. Learn more: http://www.healthreform.gov/reports/inaction
  7. Diminishing Access to Care: From 2000 to 2007, the proportion of non-elderly Americans covered by employer-based health insurance fell from 66% to 61%. An estimated 87 million people – one in every three Americans under the age of 65 – were uninsured at some point in 2007 and 2008. More than 80% of the uninsured are in working families. Learn more: http://www.healthreform.gov/reports/inaction/diminishing/index.html
  8. The Trends are Troubling: Without reform, health care costs will continue to skyrocket unabated, putting unbearable strain on families, businesses, and state and federal government budgets. Perhaps the most visible sign of the need for health care reform is the 46 million Americans currently without health insurance – projections suggest that this number will rise to about 72 million in 2040 in the absence of reform.

President Obama Stick With Your Plan

President Obama Stick With Your Plan

PRESIDENT OBAMA CALL THE BLUE DOGS AND REPUBLICANS OUT ON THIS LET THE PEOPLE KNOW, DONT TAKE THE FALL FOR THEM
President Obama, vote on the health care plan now you want and have been working so hard on. Just Vote and show what you and the other Democrats that we voted for want to do. Even if there are issues, show that these issues are not yours. Call these Republican and Blue Dog Democrats and Conservative Democrats that are more worried about having their pockets lined than the people. At least the American People will know where you stand next time around. The Republicans who have done nothing for years and wouldn’t unless you brought this up are hoping for you to fail. No, No, No, show them for who they are. People came out in droves to vote for you, people of all color, age, and I still believe in you. The Republicans and these Blue Dogs want you to fail and continue to line their pockets. They claim to be Christian and for the people, they are hypocrites. I am sick of beating a dead horse here, but you need to forget the bipartisanship, stick together as the Dem’s that you have, and call these blue dog imposter’s out, and the Republicans, so the next voting time, they can not blame you. Stick with your plan, don’t fall like they want you to.
