Serbia destroyed Tito's Yugoslavia.

Serbia destroyed Tito's Yugoslavia. Tito’s Yugoslavia was destroyed by the Serbian thirst for total domination. Tito’s Yugoslavia was a state that deserved respect and Tito, a Croatian liberal communist, was a visionary politician but under no circumstances can Serbia call on the legacy of Tito and Yugoslavia. When asking for support against Kosovo’s independence Serbia, through its Foreign Minister Jeremic, calls upon the legacy of Tito and Yugoslavia. Tito was the chief architect of the "second Yugoslavia", a socialist federation that lasted from World War II until 1991. Despite being one of the founders of Cominform, he was also the first Communist leader in power to defy Soviet hegemony. A backer of independent roads to socialism (sometimes referred to as "national communism"), he was one of the main founders and promoters of the Non-Aligned Movement.
Tito's leadership, Yugoslavia became a founding member of the Non-Aligned Movement. In 1961, Tito co-founded the movement with Egypt's Gamal Abdel Nasser, India's Jawaharlal Nehru, Indonesia's Sukarno and Ghana's Kwame Nkrumah, in an action called The Initiative of Five. It is of no doubt that Tito’s policy contributed to the peace in the world through creating a middle ground between the extreme rivalries between the two blocks. This move was visionary and positive. The worldwide respect for Yugoslavia was a direct merit of Tito, who struggled throughout his time as Yugoslavia’s leader to control the extreme appetites of Serbian nationalists who constantly strived for domination. Among few leaders of the time Tito also realized that the hard repression against the Kosovo Albanian population should be stopped and that the denial of rights of the Kosovo Albanians was not the right policy.

Why markets can’t cure healthcare

Why markets can’t cure healthcare - Paul Krugman Blog - NYTimes.com

Why markets can’t cure healthcare

Judging both from comments on this blog and from some of my mail, a significant number of Americans believe that the answer to our health care problems — indeed, the only answer — is to rely on the free market. Quite a few seem to believe that this view reflects the lessons of economic theory.

Not so. One of the most influential economic papers of the postwar era was Kenneth Arrow’s Uncertainty and the welfare economics of health care, which demonstrated — decisively, I and many others believe — that health care can’t be marketed like bread or TVs. Let me offer my own version of Arrow’s argument.

There are two strongly distinctive aspects of health care. One is that you don’t know when or whether you’ll need care — but if you do, the care can be extremely expensive. The big bucks are in triple coronary bypass surgery, not routine visits to the doctor’s office; and very, very few people can afford to pay major medical costs out of pocket.

This tells you right away that health care can’t be sold like bread. It must be largely paid for by some kind of insurance. And this in turn means that someone other than the patient ends up making decisions about what to buy. Consumer choice is nonsense when it comes to health care. And you can’t just trust insurance companies either — they’re not in business for their health, or yours.

This problem is made worse by the fact that actually paying for your health care is a loss from an insurers’ point of view — they actually refer to it as “medical costs.” This means both that insurers try to deny as many claims as possible, and that they try to avoid covering people who are actually likely to need care. Both of these strategies use a lot of resources, which is why private insurance has much higher administrative costs than single-payer systems. And since there’s a widespread sense that our fellow citizens should get the care we need — not everyone agrees, but most do — this means that private insurance basically spends a lot of money on socially destructive activities.

The second thing about health care is that it’s complicated, and you can’t rely on experience or comparison shopping. (“I hear they’ve got a real deal on stents over at St. Mary’s!”) That’s why doctors are supposed to follow an ethical code, why we expect more from them than from bakers or grocery store owners.

You could rely on a health maintenance organization to make the hard choices and do the cost management, and to some extent we do. But HMOs have been highly limited in their ability to achieve cost-effectiveness because people don’t trust them — they’re profit-making institutions, and your treatment is their cost.

Between those two factors, health care just doesn’t work as a standard market story.

All of this doesn’t necessarily mean that socialized medicine, or even single-payer, is the only way to go. There are a number of successful health-care systems, at least as measured by pretty good care much cheaper than here, and they are quite different from each other. There are, however, no examples of successful health care based on the principles of the free market, for one simple reason: in health care, the free market just doesn’t work. And people who say that the market is the answer are flying in the face of both theory and overwhelming evidence.

Senior lawyers in the Obama administration are deeply divided over some of the counterterrorism powers they inherited from former President George W. Bush, according to interviews and a review of legal briefs. The case of Belkacem Bensayah, held at Guantánamo, has been the focus of debate. The rift has been most pronounced between top lawyers in the State Department and the Pentagon, though it has also involved conflicts among career Justice Department lawyers and political appointees throughout the national security agencies. The discussions, which shaped classified court briefs filed this month, have centered on how broadly to define the types of terrorism suspects who may be detained without trials as wartime prisoners - NYT

Now Max Baucus tells us: the health care overhaul America was just forced to endure was the government’s attempt to fix the "mal-distribution of income."

L. Graham: Wave of state legislatures will fight back against health bill

It is unlikely that the Supreme Court will strike down ObamaCare

In a constitutional democracy (a constitutional republic) the government is the people The Government and the Congress represent the will of the people, or the will of majority of the people

Theodore Roosevelt was the first President to call for Universal Health Care & National Health Insurance and he was a conservative Republican

We now have a government of the people, by the people, for the people. Fox News, for instance, wants a government of the corporations, by the corporations, for the corporations

Deregulation by Bush Administration caused this situation.

"The evidence strongly suggests the latter. First, consider timing. CRA was enacted in 1977. The sub-prime lending at the heart of the current crisis exploded a full quarter century later. In the mid-1990s, new CRA regulations and a wave of mergers led to a flurry of CRA activity, but, as noted by the New America Foundation's Ellen Seidman (and by Harvard's Joint Center), that activity "largely came to an end by 2001." In late 2004, the Bush administration announced plans to sharply weaken CRA regulations, pulling small and mid-sized banks out from under the law's toughest standards. Yet sub-prime lending continued, and even intensified -- at the very time when activity under CRA had slowed and the law had weakened.
Second, it is hard to blame CRA for the mortgage meltdown when CRA doesn't even apply to most of the loans that are behind it. As the University of Michigan's Michael Barr points out, half of sub-prime loans came from those mortgage companies beyond the reach of CRA. A further 25 to 30 percent came from bank subsidiaries and affiliates, which come under CRA to varying degrees but not as fully as banks themselves. (With affiliates, banks can choose whether to count the loans.) Perhaps one in four sub-prime loans were made by the institutions fully governed by CRA.
Most important, the lenders subject to CRA have engaged in less, not more, of the most dangerous lending. Janet Yellen, president of the San Francisco Federal Reserve, offers the killer statistic: Independent mortgage companies, which are not covered by CRA, made high-priced loans at more than twice the rate of the banks and thrifts. With this in mind, Yellen specifically rejects the "tendency to conflate the current problems in the sub-prime market with CRA-motivated lending.? CRA, Yellen says, "has increased the volume of responsible lending to low- and moderate-income households."
http://www.prospect.org/cs/articles?article=did_liberals_cause_the_subprime_crisis
"That's pretty easy to answer, too. His name is Phil Gramm. A few days after the Supreme Court made George W. Bush president in 2000, Gramm stuck something called the Commodity Futures Modernization Act into the budget bill. Nobody knew that the Texas senator was slipping America a 262 page poison pill. The Gramm Guts America Act was designed to keep regulators from controlling new financial tools described as credit "swaps." These are instruments like sub-prime mortgages bundled up and sold as securities. Under the Gramm law, neither the SEC nor the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) were able to examine financial institutions like hedge funds or investment banks to guarantee they had the assets necessary to cover losses they were guaranteeing.
This isn't small beer we are talking about here. The market for these fancy financial instruments they don't expect us little people to understand is estimated at $60 trillion annually, which amounts to almost four times the entire US stock market.
And Senator Phil Gramm wanted it completely unregulated. So did Alan Greenspan, who supported the legislation and is now running around to the talk shows jabbering about the horror of it all."

Over half of these subprime loans came from mortgages companies not covered by CRA.

“Christ”, the Pope stressed, “is the true 'doctor' of humanity".

The Gospels give varying amounts of detail for each episode, sometimes Jesus cures simply by saying a few words

St Luke was a physian, a doctor (Colossians 4:14)
'He was called "the beloved physician" by Paul (Colossians 4:14), and undoubtedly one reason for his ongoing association with Paul as the latter's need for frequent medical care.'

http://www.icr.org/article/doctor-luke/
“Christ”, the Pope stressed, “is the true 'doctor' of humanity".

He said that physical illness reminds humanity of its need for spiritual healing from Christ, whom he called the ‘true doctor of humanity.’

“Christ”, the Pope stressed, “is the true 'doctor' of humanity, Whom the heavenly Father sent into the world to cure mankind, marked in body and spirit by sin and the consequences of sin."

Recalling that Sunday’s specific Gospel text recounts the healing of a leper "and very effectively expresses the intensity of the relationship between God and man," the Pope said that "…we see [here] the entire history of salvation in concentrated form."

"That gesture of Jesus,” he continued, “Who stretches out His hand and touches the scarred body of the person who calls on Him, perfectly expresses God's will to restore His fallen creature to health, giving him back 'abundant life' - eternal, full and joyful life.”

“Christ”, he said, “is 'the hand' of God reaching out to humanity, that it may escape from the quicksands of sickness and death, and stand on its own feet on the solid rock of divine love."

The Pope concluded his noontime address entrusting “all sick people, especially those who, all over the world, in addition to poor health, also suffer from solitude, poverty and marginalization," to the Blessed virgin Mary.

OBAMACARE

Small businesses amount for the majority of job creation in the United States, and their reluctance to hire is a critical reason why the jobless rate is near 9.7 percent and likely to remain abnormally high for the next five years.

Small companies employed 106.7 million people as of February, down from nearly 115 million at the start of the recession in December 2007, according to paycheck processing company ADP's monthly small business employment report.

The reform bill offers a tax cut to encourage small firms to provide healthcare coverage which starts right away.

Come 2014, it imposes a fine of up to $2,000 per employee for not providing insurance, although that applies only to companies with more than 50 workers. According to ADP's data, those firms accounted for about 55 percent of small business employment.

"Even though the uncertainty is off the table, the higher costs are a reality," said Harm Bandholz, an economist at UniCredit Research in New York. "This health care reform was just one of many reasons of why many companies have not hired yet. The biggest problem is still the uncertain outlook about the strength of the recovery."

A mandate requiring individuals to obtain health insurance or face a fine also takes effect in 2014. Economists thought that was most likely to affect poor and younger people, many of whom would qualify for tax credits to help cover the cost, so the impact on consumer spending would likely be muted.

Longer term, the $138 billion in 10 year budget deficit reductions the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office expects are dependent on Congress sticking to the tax hikes and spending cuts envisioned in the bill. Some economists were skeptical that lawmakers would follow through.

With the exception of a 10 percent tax on some tanning services, most of the increased costs come much later. A Medicare tax hike on the wealthy begins in 2013; an excise tax on high-cost health insurance plans doesn't start until 2018; and a fine for uninsured individuals begins in 2016.

(Reuters)

Richard Nixon presented a health care bill in 1973 with individual mandate David Axelrod: After Health Care No One Should Doubt 'Warrior' Obama's 'Strength,' 'Perseverance'

'Mitt Romney, weighing another run for the GOP presidential nomination, signed such a requirement into law at the state level as Massachusetts governor in 2006. At the time, Romney defended it as "a personal responsibility principle" and Massachusetts' newest GOP senator, Scott Brown, backed it. Romney now says Obama's...... plan is a federal takeover that bears little resemblance to what he did as governor and should be repealed.'

MANDATORY HC - New health insurance requirement ... was GOP idea - Yahoo! News news.yahoo.com
Republicans were for President Barack Obama's requirement that Americans get health insurance before they were against it.
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_health_overhaul_requiring_insurance

In 1973 Nixon proposed a mandatory Health Care Plan

It's interesting that you quoted JFK because Ted is the father of ObamaCare and in 1973 Nixon proposed a mandatory Health Care plan

All Americans could have affordable health care, doing something positive

Obama wins epic health-care battle

The conservatives employ a misleading rhetoric. It is always important to remember that Tort Reform and National Competition are not enough to improve health care in the United States and a federal Tort Reform, without an amendment, is unconstitutional. Health care is impossible without local laws and regulations


My arguments are very clear and logically related to the main idea. The free market does not work in Health Care. Krugman presented the rationale for the need to regulate. Health care is impossible without local laws and regulations and the United States of America is a federation. The United States tort law comprises all of the various tort laws of the states. The federal (central) government has the highest executive role, but the states have their own special rules. ... See More

Universal health care systems vary according to the extent of government involvement in providing care and/or health insurance . For more details :

CRA regulations and a wave

of mergers led to a flurry of CRA activity, but, as noted by the New America
Foundation's Ellen Seidman (and by Harvard's Joint Center), that activity
"largely came to an end by 2001." In late 2004, the Bush administration
announced plans to sharply weaken CRA regulations, pulling small and mid-sized
banks out from under the law's toughest standards. Yet sub-prime lending
continued, and even intensified -- at the very time when activity under CRA had
slowed and the law had weakened.' ROBERT GORDON

Over half of these subprime loans came from mortgages companies not covered by CRA.

BBC News - US House passes key healthcare reform

news.bbc.co.uk

The US House of Representatives has narrowly voted to pass a landmark healthcare reform bill at the heart of President Barack Obama's agenda.
More millions of Americans will in the future have health care coverage when this new law in effect. I'm willing to spend more money to know that others will have have this coverage. Go Obama! Go Speaker Pelosi! You in congress are meeting American's basic needs of health care. This is a historic moment!

In it, Professor Hall concludes that there are no plausible Tenth Amendment or States’ rights issues arising from the imposition by Congress of an individual responsibility to maintain health coverage.

Professor Hall notes further that health care and health insurance both affect and are distributed through interstate commerce. And that gives Congress the power to legislate a coverage requirement using its Commerce Clause powers. ... See More

Professor Hall notes that the Supreme Court indicated in its decisions in United States v. Morrison and United States v. Lopez — two other cases relied on by the other side — that the non-economic, criminal nature of the conduct in those cases was central to the court’s decisions in those cases that the Government had not appropriately exercised power under the Commerce Clause.

Health insurance, on the other hand, does not deal with criminal conduct. Health insurance is commercial and economic in nature and, to reiterate, substantially affects interstate commerce.

Health insurance and health care services are a significant part of the national economy. National health spending is 17.6 percent of the economy. And it is projected to increase from $2.5 trillion in 2009 to $4.7 trillion in 2019.

“I’m tired of paying for everyone else’s stupidity,” is a comment I read on the Internet last week after the health care bill was passed. It summed up the views of many Americans worried about shelling out higher premiums and taxes to cover the uninsured. Why should we pick up the tab when so much disease in our countr...y stems from unhealthy behavior like smoking and overeating? In fact, the majority of Americans say it is fair to ask people with unhealthy lifestyles to pay more for health insurance. We believe in the concept of personal responsibility. You hear it in doctors’ lounges and in coffee shops, among the white collar and blue collar alike. Even President Obama has said, “We’ve got to have the American people doing something about their own care.” But personal responsibility is a complex notion, especially when it comes to health.

Benedict XVI is ''''calling'''' for solidarity and responsibility

"A vicar is a servant who """""""'stands in place of the real sovereign in some administrative matters of his kingdom""""""""""''', equivalent titles include """""""'"representative" or "overseer"""""""'. The title is now used in Catholicism to refer to the bishops[2] and more specifically to the Pope"

He is an INSTRUMENT of GOD

The Pope represents Peter, Peter is the rock of the church. Jesus gave him the keys, and He works through the Pope

He doesnt think he is God, this is puerile.

Like many other thinkers such as Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Locke, he is speaking about natural and moral law, the teachings of Jesus. Jesus is God, the Pope is His minister

"The Papal Tiara is the crown of the papacy. For over one millennium all popes were crowned with a tiara in a Papal Coronation. The tiara is one of the key symbols of the papacy, and features on the Vatican coat of arms. Pope Benedict XVI has replaced the tiara on his official coat of arms with a traditional bishop's mitre and the pallium, symbols of the Pontiff's authority as Bishop of Rome.

Though people talk of the tiara, there are in fact over twenty surviving tiaras in existence. The earliest dates from the sixteenth century" (Wiki)

(Rev. 1:6; 5:10; 1 Pet. 2:9) (Rom. 8:32; 1 Cor. 3:21-22)

THE CHURCH baptizes in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

THEY ARE ALL INSTRUMENTS OF GOD, ministers of God

The Bishops are successors of the Apostles in general

ENCYCLICAL LETTER
CARITAS IN VERITATE
OF THE SUPREME PONTIFF
BENEDICT XVI

''Solidarity is first and foremost a sense of responsibility on the part of everyone with regard to everyone[93], and it cannot therefore be merely delegated to the State. While in the past it was possible to argue that justice had to come first and gratuitousness could follow afterwards, as a complement, today it is clear that without ... See Moregratuitousness, there can be no justice in the first place. What is needed, therefore, is a market that permits the free operation, in conditions of equal opportunity, of enterprises in pursuit of different institutional ends. Alongside profit-oriented private enterprise and the various types of public enterprise, there must be room for commercial entities based on mutualist principles and pursuing social ends to take root and express themselves. It is from their reciprocal encounter in the marketplace that one may expect hybrid forms of commercial behaviour to emerge, and hence an attentiveness to ways of civilizing the economy. Charity in truth, in this case, requires that shape and structure be given to those types of economic initiative which, without rejecting profit, aim at a higher goal than the mere logic of the exchange of equivalents, of profit as an end in itself.''

Social Justice in Christian terms has nothing to do with socialism or communism

Catholic doctrine has always emphatically condemned Communism

''She was hostile to theocracy warriors but never to private faith.''

Ok I am hostile to theocracy too but we cannot
abandon our principles

The message is quite clear. Benedict XVI is ''''calling'''' for solidarity and responsibility

''What is needed, therefore, is a market that permits the free operation, in conditions of equal opportunity, of enterprises in pursuit of different institutional ends. '''''Alongside profit-oriented private enterprise and the various types of public ...enterprise '''''', there must be room for commercial entities based on mutualist principles and pursuing social ends to take root and express themselves.

THE CAUSES OF THE CRISIS

1 - Bush Administation spent 2 trillion dollars in two wars

2 - Against the democrats wishes, republicans deregulated the banking industry and it caused the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression

The GOP deregulated the electricity under the guise of cheaper electricity. Electric rates promptly sky rocketed and we're all still paying to this very day.

The GOP deregulated the mortgage industry

Over half of these subprime loans came from mortgages companies not covered by CRA.

Bush tax cuts and deregulation created this great depression

EARTHQUAKES AND GOD

God does not punish people indiscrimnately

He could use more peaceful means.

The universe is ruled by natural law, by principles of action. Mechanical operation

As humans we have intelligence to understand everything, including natural laws

God does not kill innocent people.

God always makes sure that people are warned, by means of His prophets

The possibility of compassion development is something each of us can look at any point in our lives.

Don't judge religion by what a few people do, but go to the authentic sources, its foundational texts and the statements of its authorities. Judge religion by the best example. Religion is good but I reject its instrumentalization by politicians
