        • Which changes do you see as being scary?

          I’m a little pessimistic this evening.  I think this country is so far in the toilet, I don’t think there is any salvaging it no matter what changes we make.

          My state finally passed a no smoking in bars and restaurants law.  While I rejoice that I no longer have to breathe second hand smoke at work, I think this sort of change just drags us one step closer to socialism.

        • California is in a MAJOR MESS!!  

          I keep hearing from MY FRIENDS....their insurance premiums going up due to the Obamacare.  Hmmmm......and they said they wouldn’t go up.  Eventually people will not be able to afford it...(thank you Nancy Pelosi)...and then..what do you have?  A socialistic healthcare.  And they said we would be able to keep our current health plan. Obama failed to say IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT.....

          I don’t know if we can ever recover from what this administration has done......I can only pray!

          November 2nd...did get their attention...that people are sick of BIG GOVERNMENT....SICK OF THIS ADMINISTRATION... SICK OF THE POLICIES AND LAWS THAT KEEP GETTING PUSHED THROUGH WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE AND SOME WITH OUR KNOWLEDGE...but they do it anyway...even if we protest.  

          If things do not improve...I do see a modern revolution....and maybe that is what needs to happen since no one in Washington listens.  Those are my morning ramblings.

        • My husband’s office insurance goes up just about every year and a lot of people says theirs go up as well but not so sure how the Obama care has made it considerably worse seeing that they were going up all along.  Not to sure about all of it but will be glad to be educated on it. Guess I have my work cut out for me finding out.

        • AARP announced that premiums for their 4500 employees will go up 13% as a result of the new healthcare law. They supported the law initially. And they kept a very close eye on all the legislation. And they attribute the increase to the new law.

          California is a mess. We have a home there and I do hope everything gets better before we move in 5 years.

          Last night we were having a discussion about the CAL-PERS retirement for state employees. They get 90% of their salary after working for 25 years. Joe’s sister in law retired a couple of years ago and she’s making a very good income in retirement and will probably be living more years than she actually worked for the state. This type of deficit for the state will no doubt be a big factor in its downfall. It makes no sense to work 25 years and receive 30 or years in guaranteed income afterward.

        • I have a friend working at GM and he says in his opinion it is the big long term benefits that has caused and will continue to cause hardship on the company in his opinion. We just have to be mindful of our spendings, investments and surroundings.

        • It is such a mess. England where socialize med isnt working is cutting everything why would he want to follow something that isnt working. Plus we didnt want it but he didnt listen to his country and then put in all these taxes and loop holes that we get stuck paying for what we didnt want again. First on the insurance and then again on the back end to put money back into the health care. It is absolutely an abuse of power in my book.
          I am afraid for us, our children
          Also what is getting me is the state employees and unions here now let me explain. My sister in law is a state employee in a union and she makes really good money and because she had to take 4 fullow days this year she is all up in arms so what its partly the fault of the unions herenot all and somethings need to be unioned but not state employees when she retires shell get 90% and she can retire anytime after 50. Its a bugger.

        • When I hear people saying to look at England, France, Greece - as examples for the direction we‘re headed it’s hard to ignore.
