Do you fee like you have seen a media blitz on healthcare? These ads are both pro and con. They are also appearing on television, radio, internet, and newspaper. There are also handouts available in doctor offices, clinics and hospitals. The old saying is following the money but in this battle the money is everywhere. It turns out that medical providers, businesses and other groups battling over a health care overhaul have spent $110 million this year on television advertising. The money pouring in has hit a fever pitch as the last week the average has climbed to $1.1 million daily. There is a breakdown of about $47 million spent for ads favoring the health overhaul and another $32 million has been spent by those who are opposed. The balance is watchdog groups trying to get out the facts and ads that talk generally about health care. So who is spending the most money, well you are of course the biggest spender is the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The AARP is spending plenty of the member’s money as they feel they have the most to lose and the biggest membership effected.
In 2005 state legislature killed the 2005 Real ID Act, so we have seen that activists and state legislators are focusing their efforts on federal governments Health Care reform. State Legislators are looking for a way to reject any potential national health care program. We have seen this in 34 states check the ncls.org website for tracking all the legislation. Arizona will vote on a proposal on the 2010 ballot which would constitutionally override any law, rule or regulation that requires individuals or employers to participate in any particular health care system. Indiana, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, and Wyoming are all moving the same ballot question. Florida, Michigan, Louisiana and Georgia announced that they were planning on introducing resolutions for State Constitutional Amendments that would allow the people of those states to effectively opt-out of any future national health care plan. There are a total of 14 states that have been reported that are enacting bills or have them already to nullify national healthcare. This may have worked for the Real ID act, but this is a bigger game. This is for a bunch of marbles and everyone has to play ball or the pie can not be cut up correctly. The best part of this is if it worked how many people would move to states that are not part of the National Healthcare plan. It will be like when you could not get Coors beer east of the Mississippi it made Colorado seem like so much better place to live.

There are finally signs that the American people are coming back to their senses. In January, it was impossible to escape the Barack Obama commercialism. His image and name were on millions of T-shirts, posters and commemorative plates. Then after all the bailouts, the stimulus, health care legislation and approval rating down to 50 percent, the honeymoon is finally over. Sales have finally slowed significantly compared to the inauguration. On Sept. 12, there was an up tick in Washington DC but that was because protesters were buying posters that day to draw on to show their distaste. The biggest shift in Obama merchandising is the rise of anti-Obama sales in recent months. The best is the Barack-in-the-Box creator as they have 3,000 jack-in-the-boxes with smiling Barack Obama puppets inside sitting in a California warehouse, waiting to be sprung open for $29.95 a piece. Even they have to admit the thrill is gone and they should probably think about a half price sale as there is only 1208 days left. Then again there is still a market for Billy Beer.

We have found a site that offers fine art that is right out of the Impressionist Era. When you look at the works of art that have been produced by Pino they are amazing. Pino was born in 1939, and was the influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites and Macchiaioli. Pino’s work has appeared in several major exhibitions throughout Italy and Europe. In 1979, Pino immigrated to the United States. Pino has illustrated 3,000 books. In 1992 Pino’s paintings have appeared in Morris and Whiteside Gallery in Hilton Head and Stuart Johnson’s Settlers West Gallery in Tucson. In addition, Pino’s ability to capture the movements and expressions of his subjects has brought him private commissions to do portraits. Right now there is a full service art gallery in the Los Angeles area committed to the philosophy of offering dealer prices to the public. They specialize in Contemporary, Traditional and Commercial art including such artists as Pino. The staff has been in the fine art business for over 15 years and prides themselves in their customer service and quality. If you have not seen the works of art by Pino then you need to see these beautiful pieces that have a great composition and leave any art connoisseur breathless.
We have seen this movie and the outcome is not as pretty as a Hollywood ending. President Barack Hussein Obama is planning to push for new sanctions against Iran, targeting its energy, financial and telecommunications sectors if it does not comply with international demands to come clean about its nuclear program. Does this not sound like Iraq all over again, the only shocking piece is that this is the President Barack Hussein Obama lets bring everyone into the fold talks, or one on one talks but we need a dialog. Maybe this one of those pies in the sky sound bites from the debate that does not work in practical terms. We believe it was Senator John McCain who said to President Obama you can not have one on one talks about nuclear weapons. Looks like he was right and the route of going through the UN and sanctions is the only weapon you have. Tell me if you heard these sanctions before, U.S. expands its own penalties against Iranian companies, press for greater international sanctions against Europeans firms that do business with Iran, asset freezes, and travel bans. It is believed another round of talks would be scheduled before mid-November, at which Iran would face demands to address the international community’s concerns. If they refuse, the officials said the U.S. and its partners would move ahead with new penalties. Those who do not learn form history are doomed to repeat it.

When in Rome do as the Roman’s do, but when in Pittsburgh give the Roman’s the cold shoulder. Michelle Obama was greeting many leaders at a Pittsburgh summit last week with a kiss but she stiffly only held out her arm to shake Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconiis hand. The reason Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi Shortly after Obama’s election, raised eyebrows by saying the victor was “young, handsome and even has a good tan.”. Then when he meets with President Barack Obama he told a rally in Milan that he was bringing greetings from the United States from “What’s his name? Some tanned guy. Ah, Barack Obama. This time, Berlusconi took the same shot at the First Lady. “You won’t believe it,” he said Sunday, “but two of them went to the beach because the wife is also tanned.” The report from Italy is Premier Silvio Berlusconi is known for his gaffes. The tea512 favorite Premier Silvio Berlusconi in September admitted that Giampaolo Tarantini had brought about 30 “beautiful” women to parties at his Rome palazzo and at least six had spent the night there. They actually asked him to resign, he said: “I sincerely believe I have been the best (premier) that Italy has had in its 150-year history, and I base that on what I’ve done and what I’m doing,” he declared. As far as world leaders go we found a winner.
