Yeah, This Will End Well

The nation's largest pharmacy benefits manager says prescription drugs spending rose 13 percent last year, the largest annual increase since 2003.

The culprit are drugs to treat things like Hep C. Accounting for a tiny number of actual prescriptions (by volume) they're a third (roughly) of the spending.

Yeah, that's going work out real well....

And people wonder why I maintain that the current model we have for these products, where manufacturers can engage in behavior such as pricing differently across different markets (perfectly fine) and then getting laws passed that make it a crime to resell their products, effectively denying you ownership of that which you bought (outrageous), is utterly unsustainable and unsupportable.
Pricing a product how you wish is perfectly ok. Making it a felony to buy something from someone and then resell it for whatever you can get for it is not; the latter, were that interference to be removed, would instantly cause the leveling of prices across the world and force these companies, who wish to sell to everyone on a global basis, to adopt sustainable pricing instead of literally screwing Americans blind. The lawmakers that permit this and the pharmaceutical executives lobbying for it both deserve to spend the rest of their lives in prison; this sort of activity ought to be defined as racketeering and extortion and punished as same.

Netanyahu Still Swaying U.S. Congress

Most strikingly, Netanyahu is the only foreign leader to have been invited to address a joint session of Congress with the express purpose of undermining U.S. foreign policy: in this case, the negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program, currently entering their sensitive final stages -
Note: Is there anyone in the U.S. congress that has the balls to tell this lying SOB to leave? I guess not.

The Staggering Cost of Israel

Israel has a population of approximately 7.8 million, or a million fewer than the state of New Jersey. It is among the world's most affluent nations, with a per capita income similar to that of the European Union.[1] Israel's unemployment rate of 5.8% is better than America's 7.3%,[2] and Israel's net trade, earnings, and payments is ranked 30th in the world while the US sits in last place at a dismal 193rd.[3]

Yet, Israel receives more of America’s foreign aid budget than any other nation.[4] The US has, in fact, given more aid to Israel than it has to all the countries of sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean combined—which have a total population of over a billion people.[5]

And foreign aid is just one component of the staggering cost of our alliance with Israel.

Is It Worth It?

When it comes to Israel, an American journalist speaks his mind at his own risk. That helps explain why so few voices in the U.S. press are saying what European journalists may say without fear.

In the early 1980s it became clear to me that the pro-Israel lobby was trying to steer the United States into conflict with the Arab world. I saw nothing in the American interest in that; and my own two sons were approaching the draft age. Until then, I had been strongly pro-Israel myself; but sacrificing my boys for Israel was a higher price than I wanted to pay. Nor did I want other Americans to pay it.

10 Reasons To Pray for AIPAC’s Decline

. AIPAC promotes Israeli settlements in direct opposition to international law. As of this past year, approximately 350,000 Israelis are recorded as living in illegal Israeli settlements, a record high. Despite the fact that United Nations Human Rights Council requested the removal of all of the West Bank’s settlers and cessation of all settlement activities without preconditions, settlement construction has increased by 40% under Prime Minister Netanyahu. Israeli settlements violate the Geneva Conventions and can be prosecuted within the International Criminal Court as “gross violations of human rights law and serious violations of international humanitarian law.” No wonder AIPAC doesn’t wait Palestine to become a member of the ICC

Zarif to U.S. senators: You are ignorant of international law

Mohammad Javad Zarif said the letter lacks “legal validity” and shows that the signatories of the letter are “ignorant of international law”

“In our view this letter has no legal validity and is just a propaganda scheme,” Zarif noted.

Zarif said it is surprising that while nuclear talks have not reached a result yet pressure groups in the U.S. have become so “worried” that they have resorted to any “unconventional way” to kill it

The letter proved that “like” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu these senators “are opposed to any deal”.

According to the U.S. legal code, the definition of treason is fairly specific:

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

Berlin Rumbles Washington’s Hidden War Agenda

Washington’s reckless attempts to scuttle the shaky ceasefire in Ukraine are unnerving Germany. The German government feels, with good reason, that the Americans are trying to undermine its recent efforts to mediate a political solution to the nearly year-old conflict, which has caused at least 6,000 deaths and up to one million refugees. Not only that but the violence between the ultranationalist regime in Kiev and the pro-Russian separatists in the east is threatening to spillover into a wider war that could involve Russia and the rest of Europe.

Pop Goes Elie the Weasel.

Let it not be said that I have anything against particular sexual acts, I don't. It's more a matter of who is doing them and WHY; measuring in the cost to everyone else at the same time. Then Binnie goes and waves Elie the Weasel around at everyone. Elie is one of the most persistent and outrageous liars ever to waltz about on the world's state in the last hundred years. He's been exposed over and over again, he's even been exposed by other frauds.

You're wondering why it is taking so long for all of this to get done; for the world to change or sink under the weight of collective crimes... it is, so it can all be seen and seen and seen, so that even the densest among us can finally have their eyes opened.

European Commission Chief Wants to Create New EU Army

The European Union is unique among the nations of history. Most governing bodies are built around a culture and language that is shared amongst the people they rule, which is then followed by a shared system of laws, courts, defense forces, currency etc. Or in the case of an empire, the system hinges upon military dominance, which then enforces those conditions on every culture it can gobble up.

But the European Union is the only nation (to my knowledge) that attempted to use monetary and economic policy (the Euro) to unite a diverse set of culture, before turning into a real government in its own right. The only thing missing from the EU, is its own standing army. While each EU nation has a military, they still exercise some degree of sovereignty over their defense forces (at least on paper).

McDonald's desperation mounts as burger behemoth reports lousy Februrary U.S. sales

Now what? Two months after McDonald's launched a massive revamped "I'm Lovin' It" ad campaign from Leo Burnett Chicago, the situation at the burger behemoth has grown even more dire.

McDonald's today reported that comparable restaurant sales in the United States February plummeted 4 percent year over year. McDonald's attributed the huge falloff not to weather — even though parts of the country had a pretty miserable February — but rather to "ongoing aggressive competitive activity."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Health-aware people (you know, the ones suffering from the mental illness orthorexia nervosa) are staying clear of McDonald's, but behind that there is the reality that McDonal's original market plan was as a budget fast food place. But with their McCafe and other high-end pretensions, McDonald's food prices are now high enough to where they are not seen as attractive to their former customers.

Republican Congressmen Violated Logan Act By Negotiating With Foreign Leaders

The latest example is Congressional violation of the Logan Act. Specifically, the Logan Act – enacted in 1799 – states:

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

The Logan Act was named for Dr. George Logan, a Pennsylvania state legislator (and later US Senator) who engaged in semi-negotiations with France in 1798 during the Quasi-War.

“Finally, I took a step back and thought about each thing I had done differently in the last 6 months. Then it hit me! In trying to lower my sugar intake, I had swapped sugar in my tea and coffee for Equal. Could that be responsible for my headaches?

“I hit the net and feverishly started researching. I was horrified by what I saw, and found thousands of other cases like mine. So now I use a totally natural product called stevia…”

US Peace Memorial Foundation

Many Americans are reluctant to speak out against a U.S. war. There are individual reasons for this: a sense of patriotism, the desire to support our troops, fear of reprisals, a lack of understanding about the political process, etc. Unfortunately, when we do not speak up, our elected officials do not receive sufficient feedback that we (their constituents) oppose a particular war. To demonstrate that advocating for peaceful solutions to international problems is an honorable and socially acceptable activity, the US Peace Memorial Foundation, Inc.:

Republicans Poised to Rubber-Stamp Another Debt Ceiling Increase

On Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) reiterated something that Republican leadership has been emphasizing since re-taking control of both houses of Congress:

"I made it very clear after the November election that we're certainly not going to shut down the government or default on the national debt. We'll figure some way to handle that. And hopefully, it might carry some other important legislation that we can agree on in connection with it," McConnell said on CBS' "Face the Nation."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question Americans should be asking is not whether to raise the debt ceiling, but rather why the Federal Government, which is authorized by the Constitution to create and issue interest-free money, instead borrows that money at interest from a privately owned central bank, thereby plunging future generations into debt slavery to that bank? THAT is the real question Americans should be asking!

It was supposed to be a carefully planned anniversary to mark one of the most important and widely praised moments in Hillary Rodham Clinton’s political career — and to remind the country, ahead of a likely 2016 presidential campaign, about her long record as a champion for the rights of women and girls.

Instead, as Mrs. Clinton commemorates her 1995 women’s rights speech in Beijing in back-to-back events in New York, she finds herself under attack for her family foundation’s acceptance of millions of dollars in donations from Middle Eastern countries known for violence against women and for denying them many basic freedoms.

If you thought your winter was tough, try living on Plum Island, where record snowfall has left basements flooded with sewage, people forced out of their homes - and wild coyotes roaming the streets

With planes skidding off runways, snowdrifts as tall as houses and subzero temperatures for weeks on end, the US has suffered one of the most brutal winters on record.

Thousands of flights have been cancelled, highways and railways have been paralyzed by the cold and swaths of the northeast resemble a vast frozen tundra.

But if you thought your winter was bad spare a thought for the people of Plum Island, a tiny barrier island off the coast of Massachusetts buried under nearly 10ft of snow.

Its shivering residents have faced a daily battle to dig their homes free from mountains of ice while raw waste has spilled back into their homes because the sewers are frozen.

The only road off the island is so exposed that drivers have had to form long convoys before being escorted across in 'whiteout' conditions by the National Guard.
