UPS drops 15000 spouses from health care insurance, Obamacare blamed, Shrinking corporate medical benefits, Costs associated with the Affordable Care Act

“If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.”…Barack Obama

“However … health insurance rates and benefit coverage plan costs have continued to increase. As a result of those increases, county employees have experienced a pay decrease that has grown larger each year.”…Guilford County Interim Manager Sharisse Fuller

“Can we stop calling ObamaCare the Affordable Care Act now?”…Guilford College student

 

From Kaiser Health News August 21, 2013.

“Partly blaming the health law, United Parcel Service is set to remove thousands of spouses from its medical plan because they are eligible for coverage elsewhere.

Many analysts downplay the Affordable Care Act’s effect on companies such as UPS, noting that the move is part of a long-term trend of shrinking corporate medical benefits. But the shipping giant repeatedly cites the act to explain the decision, adding fuel to the debate over whether the law erodes traditional employer coverage.

Rising medical costs, “combined with the costs associated with the Affordable Care Act, have made it increasingly difficult to continue providing the same level of health care benefits to our employees at an affordable cost,” UPS said in a memo to employees.

The company told white-collar workers two months ago that 15,000 working spouses eligible for coverage at their own employers would be excluded from the UPS plan in 2014. The Fortune 100 firm expects the move, which applies to non-union U.S. workers only, to save about $60 million a year, said company spokesman Andy McGowan.

UPS becomes one of the highest-profile employers yet to bar working spouses from the company plan. Many firms already require employees to pay a surcharge for working-spouse medical coverage, but some are taking the next step by declining to include them at all, consultants say.”

 

“To explain the switch, UPS gave workers a memo, obtained by KHN, that repeatedly mentions the health act.

While acknowledging that overall health spending continues to rise, the company also blamed cost increases on the Affordable Care Act’s research fee (initially $1 per health plan member, then rising to $2) and an a temporary fee of $63 per member to stabilize new online marketplaces for consumers buying directly from insurers.”

  3. I have to agree with the sentiment expressed in this video. Frankly, I don’t give a rat’s as* if I offend any Muslim, that treats their women and children with abusive hands. Instead of being offended by the ridiculous and be more offended by the way they conduct themselves and expect the entire world to bow down to the sadistic fanatics.

    Why does it take an Englishman to tell us, as Americans, what is REAL and RIGHT as opposed to what is WRONG and EVIL?

    ISLAM…….IT IS WHAT IT IS…..when we, as Americans, understand that simple statement, then we will know our enemy, but will we be brave enough to confront him?

  4. Bob Strauss……..
    LA Senator Guillory has very eloquently made the point regarding the things which black America truly needs, which is EXACTLY the same things which we ALL enjoy. He is right on the money when he says the Democratic Party has FAILED the Black America. To me there is NO such thing as “BLACK America” America is now BLACK,WHITE,RED,and YELLOW. Like Red Green says, “We are all in this together”. So we must ALL work together if America is to continue forward. It is also about time that urban America started holding their SNOTNOSED kids accountable for their behavior as well…There are undoubtedly a hell of a lot of youngsters who think that they are in control of everything. Well let me introduce the “Board of Education. Every Principal’s office used to have one hanging in PLAIN sight,and it was then REGULARLY used when necessary to make a point PAINFULLY CLEAR.

  5. RMINNC………
    Good morning sir!
    One by one we see people like Guillory abandoning his LONG TIME affiliation. What do you suppose might have provided him with the incentive? Could it have been REVULSION to the LIBERAL HIJACKING of the Democratic party? Sadly the Democrats actually invited the acts of the “GANG OF 14″. Two of the original gang are now in memoriam. I am watching the remainder and as each day passes I see a growing and deepening expression of PANIC upon their faces. I hear them spewing their INSANE logic,and I see their alliliation with the CRIMINAL element. In finality I hopefully will have the ultimate pleasure of watching each and every one of the AIDERS and ABETTORS receive his/her JUST DUE……..”The BITE of the BIGHT”.

  6. RMINNC…….
    BASTARDS are in heavy concentration in our alleged society. Virtually everywhere we look there is a child who hasn’t a clue who his/her father is. This is innpart a result of a mother who thinks she needs an orgasm every ten minutes,and a male counterpart who has to have an ejaculation every ten minutes. Neither seem to give a damn about the pardon the pun ….”OUTCOME”. Neither care about the little BASTARD who will not be accepted by anybody,and eventually he/she will end up housed in a STATE or FEDERAL prison.,at the expense of taxpayers. I have chosen to use this wording of my comment in the hope that it might make my point heard a little more emphatically.

  7. ……….then to compound this we now have a heavier concentration of SEXUAL DEVIATES than ever before. They break off into sub categories like “CHILD PREDATORS”etc. Then there are the REALLY sick people among us who even murder their lovers and orally consume various parts of the genitalia. (Dahmer). Then we have the CLOSET SICKOs who we are NOT AWARE OF like the Cleveland psychotic who took away the lives of three females. He deserved a DEATH penalty for his sick behavior. He is another type of BASTARD. I guess what I am presenting is sort of a map of the downhill slope upon which our alleged society is sliding,and the speed is plainly increasing.Osama Bin Laden once stated thhat America is a DECEDANT society. I personally think that this is one point which he was absolutely right about.

  8. ………..but I hasten to add that it is in reality only a portion of our society which is errant. But sadly as each year passes the errant portion grows at a horrendous rate, and we are witness to ever increasing physical brutality, and senseless “BOREDOM” murders. Again we see the behavior of real BASTARDS. YET nothing happens to correct the problem that carries any meaning. We lock up an offender who now gets three hots and a cot ,along with pretty good healthcare. Hells bells this is probably better than he/she has ever had it…..even if the apartment is only 6’by 8′.It is air conditioned,and has all the comforts of home. I guess that is PENOLOGY taken to it’s grandest extreme.

  9. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    Anyone watching MSNBC? Speaking in NY Obama is telling students that he is going to try to get them a FREE College education.

  10. Back in the early 1990s, I worked for UPS for a year or so while awaiting my next full-time position in my field. Most UPS positions are part-time however, the benefits were great and available to part-time employees; your paycheck was squat but your health insurance was the best.

    Many employees who worked there maintained a second job to make ends meet; there was never a question that spouses and children could be included on any of the insurance plans they offered.

    Now, what are families supposed to do with this latest mess created by barky and his minions? Are employees supposed to take home $175.00/week and not be able to have family coverage under this new ‘edict?’

    Don’t be surprised to see FedEx, DSL, and other shipping companies do the same. Unless there is insurance available to the other spouse, many who are thinking of working for UPS will think twice.

    Thank you, barky, for another grand eff up.

  11. ……..finally there are the BASTARDS who are still among us ,…a few of whom are so called ELECTED LEADERS. Until WTP start making better choices at the voting booth,and until WTP is able to put an end to VOTING FRAUD, we are facing a MULTI FACETED problem, which is going to become really tough to clean up…..but if we cannot clean it up one way we MUST keep at it until we find a way to KEEP our elected people HONEST. I think there is a way,but nobody has the stomach to enforce laws that ALREADY EXIST in EVERY STATE.. To compound this we now have elected officials who take pay for doping absolutely NOTHING……and once again NOBODY EVEN SEES TO give a damn. So there we go right back to our starting point OUR OWN CONDUCT.

  12. typo= doping should be DOING. Can’t see what I am typing.

  13. BYE BYE for now God bless!

  14. SUEK………
    Before long there are going to be a LOT MORE PART TIMERS EVERYWHERE. I am wondering how the UAW likes this POSSIBILITY. ….har har, now they might have to start WORKING for a living. har har again!

  15. Good morning to you OLDSAILOR81…my friend in Indiana….

    It’s always nice to see that you are in fighting shape and ready to tie a knot in that tiger’s tail….how are things up your way this fine morning?

    We FINALLY got some sunshine here in Charlotte….I heard over the local news last night that we haven’t had only three days in a row without rain this summer…and we have only had 2 weekends without rain…….I’m growing skin between my toes…does that mean I will pass for a duck?

    This is highly unusual summer for this part of the country…for the past 7 years, we have had beautiful cloudless skies almost every day…thats why they call this state the land of “big blue skies”…well that was until this year !

    If this rain continues into the winter months around here, we may be “butt high” in snow…it has happened before…or so I’m told.

    Take care….

  16. RMINNC……..
    In 1972 we had a very wet summer. All we got done was MOW grass. As I recall we were fortunate enough to salvage only TWO decent weekends out of the entire summer. It would be great all week then on Friday afternoon at about 4:00 PM we would hear thunder,look up and see anvil heads. Totally weird. I had bought my boat about a month earlier,and had only one chance to put it in the water. When you put $28,000.00 into a boat you do like to enjoy it once in a while. I had stored it at a marina in Toledo.the first year. But when they put my neighbor’s boat in the water without the bilge drain plug I decided it was time to change places of storage. His boat sunk and the marina got the pleprivilege of recovering and restoring the boat. It was almost a carbon copy of my boat.. Both were 28’Bayliners. Not real cheap to restore..Of course it was their insurance carrier who actually footed the bill. but the marina was agreeable to making a boat available to him while his boat was being restored.The restoration required nearly the rest of the Erie boating season.

  20. Any way it is stacked the result is a Socialist government into which the US is headed. Because of the already well known collusion which is going on behind the backs of the public, it is doubtful that we will ever be able to return to a FREE COUNTRY status. Like RMINNC pointed out so well in a prior comment there is absolutely NO longer any INCENTIVE for people to work hard to earn a living when they can live off of welfare,and enjoy a comfortable living,and do nothing in return.Hell I might even go to Hawaii myself and actually buy myself a LITTLE GRASS SHACK on WAIKIKI

  21. ………..we may already be past the point of NO RETURN. Thanks to the IDIOTS who elected Soetoro again. Sadly they too ARE GOING TO BE EFFECTED, and I am SALIVATING with anticipation to hear their ANGUIISHED SCREAMS. I will dance in GLEE as I look at the MORON EXPRESSION upon their faces, as each DISCOVERS HIS/HER own STUPIDITY.

  28. OldSailor,

    I disagree my dear friend, reason I mentioned Isoroku Yamamoto’s words and dire concern in an effortless unwinnable battle.

    These infiltrators highly underestimate many variables and factors, and agitating even the ill informed voters through provocations, will in fact – backfire. History has proven such. Even the military wakes up. They only believe themselves such nonsense as – polls, political career security, power, political lobbyist and gradual control of the media; which makes them “feel” as if they have control. Then they make their move, and it always fails, as history has shown. And it will again. Wise words from many in history, but they always fall on deaf ears of corrupt leaders.

    Mao, Hitler, Stalin – to name a few, all thought the same once they believed control and power was within a few. They all underestimated Isoroku Yamamoto’s wise words towards Americans. And they all failed, and will again.

  29. So very angry, it moved me to tears. I wonder if the drive-by media will report it. This man, like many before & since him have, served his country so slime like this (regardless of race or ethnic background) can be free.

    Amazing that there hasn’t been more press coverage of the very suspicious circumstances around Breitbart’s untimely death–along with quite a number of others with embarrassing info about Obama.

If and when anybody does awaken it will already be too late for anybody to take any defensive action. The longer you SLEEP America,the sooner you will find yourself in a police state.,and with a dictator. The only option you will then have is to copy the Italiansby doing exactly as they did regarding Mussolini.

    “How Responsible Is Obama for the Oklahoma Killing?”

    “Ayeee I knocked out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!” young James Edwards tweeted on July 15 in the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Edwards’s tweets surfaced after he and two of his homies were charged with killing Australian baseball player Chris Lane in Duncan, Oklahoma, last Friday.

    For the record, “woods” is short for peckerwoods, a derogatory term for white people. If Edwards, who is black, knocked out five woods as claimed, he would hardly be unique. As Colin Flaherty chillingly documents in his frequently updated book, White Girl Bleed A Lot, the “knock-out game” has become something of a recreational outlet for bored black youths.

    This “game” is just one form of black-on-nonblack assaults. Although hard to quantify, they seem to have intensified after the media put a racial spin on the Martin shooting eighteen months ago. Occasionally, the attackers have made the link explicit, claiming they were “doing it for Trayvon,” revenge being a more honorable motive than boredom.”

    This could be the “shot heard around the world”.

  39. THISTLE……

    Your post at 11:07pm has left me fighting mad !!!

    I wonder just how much more of this “black youth lawlessness” will “white America” take from these “black YOUTH criminals” ?

    These two “brave” black scum teenagers must be real proud of themselves today.

    Just how much energy did it take for these young black men to beat up that 88 year old white male veteran, who most likely didn’t have the energy to walk into the Eagles Club without a cane?

    Just how much more is white law abiding America, (and we are still the majority race,if I recall) willing to take from these black youth criminal elements before we rise up and say, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, AND NOT ONE MORE DAMN INCIDENT WILL WE TOLERATE”.

    The black youth has learned a secret; the main stream media is playing this “game of life” according to their rule…that rule is; “The black youth can do whatever they wish to the ‘woods’ and the media will never report it as it as a ‘hate crime’…they will always provide an alibi and excuse for the black youth criminal actions…so therefore, let us bring chaos and murder upon Whitey and take our ‘game’ to the limits”.

    The long list of abuse I have seen here on CW that have been committed so far by black youth should tell the thinking WHITE American, what and just how far the black criminal elements are willing to push this envelope.

    This latest incident where two black youths beat an 88 year old war veteran to death is the latest incident showing the mentality and ruthlessness of the black youth of America today……this FACT CANNOT BE HIDDEN BY ANY AMOUNT OF MEDIA INK.

    The questions that must be addressed to find the answer to this black youth lawlessness problem is:

    How did it ever get this way ?, and why did America ( all colors) permit this to happen in the first place ?

    The answers to these problems lie in the social development of the black family and community.

    No amount of SUGAR COATING by the press and government, can hide the following facts which MUST be addressed before the problem can be corrected:

    1. Three fourths of all inmates in prison today are black, yet the black race accounts for only 13 percent of America’s population. WHY?

    2. 8 out of ten black babies born today have no father in the house. WHY?

    3. Well over 50 percent of the black families are on some kind of federal welfare program. WHY?

    4. Black on white crime is getting out of control in America, but black on black crime is already “out of control”. WHY?

    and heres the biggest question of all that begs for an answer….

    5. Never will the black race openly speak against “black on white crime”…more serious, they will only meekly speak about “black on black” crime in their communities. WHY?

    If America NEVER openly speaks of, and addresses these problems forcefully as one nation and one people..these problems will only continue to grow into something that will eventually be ‘out of coltrol’ and become very, very ugly for all races…….

    As an American, I would NOT like to see a race war in my country, but if these lawless activities DO NOT cease and ALL races of people in America do not take responsibility, control, and accountability for the actions of their people…what other course of action is there?

    You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out.

    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH…

    THIS BLACK YOUTH CRIMINAL ACTIVITY MUST STOP NOW BEFORE IT LAUNCHES THIS COUNTRY INTO SOMETHING THAT WILL DESTROY AMERICA AS WE KNOW IT….No one, black, white, yellow, or red wants to see this happen.

    David Limbaugh:

    “MARK LEVIN: A MODERN-DAY CONSTITUTIONAL PROPHET”

    “… He is, first and foremost, a constitutionalist. His goal is neither to eradicate nor to substantially change the framers’ blueprint for government. It’s to restore it with specific, defined amendments intended to re-establish the proper balance between the power of the government and the liberty of its citizens, with due emphasis on the latter.

    Levin is not arrogantly presuming to improve on the ineffable work of the framers in crafting “the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man” but humbly calling on his fellow patriots to recognize that we have strayed from the principles they enshrined in the Constitution and join him in his effort to advance the necessary correctives.”

    http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/mark-levin-a-modern-day-constitutional-prophet/

    Part of AlexanderGofen’s comment at WND: “”He is, first and foremost, a constitutionalists” – claims Mr. Limbaugh: Based on what? What we know so far regarding Mark Levin and the Constitution is that during the last 5 years Levin is on a dirty party mission: TO OBFUSCATE AND CONFUSE the audience on the fundamental Constitutional issue of the Natural Born citizenship. In so doing Levin backward legitimizes the party’s 2008/2012 double betrayal. Levin (among others) helped to keep and prolong this unprecedented hoax of the century during these last 5 ugly years.”

    Lawrence Sellin:

    “In order to understand the controversy regarding Presidential eligibility, Americans must first disabuse themselves of the notions that politicians obey the law and journalists tell the truth. As a class, neither is driven by service to the nation, but by political expediency to protect and enhance their own financial interests.

    Both the Democratic and Republican parties know that exposing Obama now would reveal their dereliction of duty, their collusion to undermine the Constitution and their uninterrupted flouting of the rule of law. They all know that the truth would upend the status quo and terminate their exclusive grip on political power, allowing the American people to regain control of their government; an outcome that they will go to any length to prevent.

    The partisan and dishonest liberal media will continue to attack Ted Cruz and shield Barack Obama. The cowardly Republicans and conservative pundits will remain silent to protect their financial stake in a corrupt political system.”

  48. JUST BEING REPORTED TODAY ON DRUDGE REPORT……

    ANOTHER HORRIBLE EXAMPLE OF BLACK YOUTH CRIME IN AMERICA…

    (WMC-TV) – A Memphis man remains in the hospital at the burn unit after police say he was set on fire. Authorities have identified two black suspects wanted for the crime.

    (WMC-TV) – A man was set on fire and discovered by another man nearby Tuesday evening, according to police. The victim has still not been identified, but he was brought The MED in extremely critical condition. A man was reportedly set on fire in a vacant lot Tuesday evening. He was found by another man, who called police.

    Police say the man suffered burn injuries to most of his body.

    Prior arrests meant Memphis police already had mug shots on file for 26-year-old Robert Glasper and 19-year-old Renard King. Police identified the two Thursday for allegedly being responsible for this horrific crime two weeks ago.

    It happened in the 700 block of Glankler Street. A man was doused with gasoline and set on fire in a vacant lot behind an abandoned house.

    Neighbor Robert Pearson could not recall the victim’s name but remembers his screams.

    “He was in the weeds. And I just came home from getting groceries. He was over there hollering, his skin peeling off,” said Pearson.

    Pearson had no clue who committed the crime, but said the devil himself would not deserve such treatment.

    The victim was burned over 60 percent of his body and was initially hospitalized in extremely critical condition.

    Arrest warrants have been issued for both Glasper and King charging the pair with one count each of criminal attempt first degree murder.

  49. Book Ushers In The Obama Impeachment Movement

    Impeachment book sales are booming, says Klein. It’s not just overpasses anymore.

    A new book making the case for the impeachment of President Barack Obama is flying off the shelves, its author said, as the president’s reelection fails to entirely damp down the deep loathing of him on parts of the right.

    Impeachable Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama from Office cites everything from the attack on the American consulate and CIA outpost in Benghazi — which it compares to the Iran Contra scandal in the Reagan years — to the way Obamacare was passed, which the authors say constitutes “taxation without representation.” The book, by WABC radio host Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott, an anti-Obama blogger, also includes American military action in Libya and the Transportation Security Administration’s passenger screenings as impeachable offenses.

  50. When is this pResident going to speak out AGAINST this wave of violent black youth crime in America.? N E V E R……he sees no problem here.

  51. Farmers, etc, people who owns land along side of highways and Interstates needs to get sponsors to build large bill boards exposing the Kenyan fraud. Not only that but the media in all forms telling people that the media is lying to them or not telling them what is happening. They must go to the internet and do their research.

    In the 08 election I typed up several conservative web sites…citizen wells…was one ;=) and left them at our Republican office telling them if they wanted to hear the truth about Barry to research and pass it on to their liberal friends. :). Most of them were taken.

  52. HAD ENOUGH YET AMERICA?…..

    HOW ABOUT THIS INCIDENT THAT OCCURRED TO A HOT DOG VENDOR AT A HOME DEPOT IN ST. LOUIS AND BEING REPORTED IN DRUDGE REPORT TODAY…

    A hot dog vendor at a Ferguson Home Depot was robbed of his cellphone and struck in the head with a hammer by four shoplifters. The incident occurred around 3 p.m on Wednesday. The Home Depot is located in St. Louis County at the 10900 block of New Halls Ferry Road. According the CBS St Louis, “the suspects are four black men in their early 20s. Two of the suspects were wearing white t-shirts, one had a plaid shirt. The fourth was wearing a blue shirt and had his right arm in a cast.”

    KMOV (tv) St Louis reported:

    Authorities said the hot dog vendor was standing at the front entrance of the Home Depot in the 10900 block of New Halls Ferry Rd. around 3 p.m. when four shoplifters walked by and swiped his cell phone.

    Police said the vendor chased them out of the store, but was struck in the head with a hammer one of the suspects. The suspects then got in a car and drove away.

    The bloodied victim was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

    Authorities were looking at surveillance video to help identify the suspects.

    HAD ENOUGH YET AMERICA….?

  53. The situation of black criminal youth activities on whites in America today reminds me so much of Nazi activities in Hitlers rise to power in Germany…

    Does anyone remember a Germany Protestant pastor and patriot by the name of Martin Niemoller (1892-1984) ?

    After the war was over, Martin became world famous for this quote that he made which live forever in the hearts and minds of free men:

    “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out–
    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out–
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out–
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me”. .

    Martin spent the last seven years of the Nazi rule in a concentration camp before being freed by the Allies…..

    The situation with the silent treatment given by our main stream press and our local/state and federal governments over this wave of black youth violence is exactly the same as that which occurred to Martin Niemoller in Germany…..

    The “Elephant in the room” will not go away until attention is given and proper actions taken.

  54. Ginger,
    Thanks for the marvelous, touching video of the hummingbird. We all need to seek out more moments of inspiration in this troubled world.

    RM,
    You are right on about the horrible killings by blacks…..These youth have no home life, no father figure, etc., so they are left to their own devices. We are reaping the whirlwind after decades of coddling by the likes of the “reverends” (you know who I mean) and a fondling media. The words of an old song which my Dad used to come forth with occasionally came to me as I read your posts (he couldn’t carry a tune, and I’m sure the words were not meant for this situation) – “You made me what I am today; I hope your satisfied……” (“You” being the coddlers; and “I” being the incorrigible black youth)

    “Ebony Magazine Ramps-up War on Whites”

    “The September issue of Ebony magazine has four tribute covers to Trayvon Martin with the headline “We are all Trayvon–Join the Movement to Save our Sons.”

    The first cover has Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton with Trayvon’s brother Jahvaris looking like the million bucks they got in the settlement from the Twin Lakes Homeowner’s Association.

    The other three covers feature director Spike Lee, model actor Boris Kodjoe, and NBA star Dwayne Wade along with their respective sons, all wearing hoodies.

    We can be sure the vultures at Ebony won’t feel any pangs of conscience for their complicity in using pampered, rich kids to encourage more Trayvon Martins to go after white people.”

    Colin Flaherty:

    “I was wrong: Obama is behind race violence”
    (“Colin Flaherty apologizes after reading of DOJ involvement in Florida”)

    “I owe a whole lot of people an apology. A real big one.

    Soon after I first started writing about black mob violence two years for WND and other places, I started seeing comments about Obama.

    A whole lot of people thought he was personally behind efforts to gin up the epidemic of black mob violence I was writing about – and the local and national media ignored.

    I kind of brushed it off. No, I did worse than that: I mentally placed all these comments into my “black helicopter international banker kook” file.

    The president of the United States personally encouraging racial violence? That struck me as crazy.

    Like Winston Smith, we are now supposed to believe something that is transparently not true. They had nothing to do with the black resentment and animosity and violence connected to this case. And others.

    Just like I believed last year when I refused to consider the depths of ignorance and malice this president would drag this country into.

    Sorry about that, everyone.”

    Playing G O D…..
    Thursday, August 22, 2013 by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer

    (NaturalNews) It is generally the case that once a person dies, there is only about a three-to-five minute window of potential resuscitation time before he or she becomes irreversibly dead, depending on the cause of death. But an American clinical care physician claims to have come up with a new way to revive corpses several hours after being dead, a process that with future advancements could eventually make it possible to revive the deceased up to 24 hours after death, he says.

    Cardiac patients at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York are already a living testament to the success of Dr. Sam Parnia’s unusual revival claims. According to the latest available statistics, nearly twice as many patients are resuscitated there every year compared to other U.S. hospitals — the average resuscitation rate at Stony Brook is an astounding 33 percent, which contrasts sharply with the 18 percent average elsewhere.

    So how does it all work?

    Utilizing the latest available medical technologies, Dr. Parnia carefully cools down the bodies of qualifying “dead” patients and pumps up their tissues with oxygen. This process, he says, prevents them from truly “dying,” as it basically just puts their lives on hold and gives physicians time to intercede and work their magic. The process is so effective, claims Dr. Parnia, that it could have revived the life of James Gandolfini, the former star of the popular television series, The Sopranos, who is believed to have died from a heart attack.

    “I believe if he died here, he could still be alive,” said Dr. Parnia recently to Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine. “We’d cool him down, pump oxygen to the tissues … clinically dead, he could then be cared for by the cardiologist. He would make an angiogram, find the clot, take it out, put in a stent and we would restart the heart.”

    Every victim of Titanic disaster could have been saved using modern techniques, says Dr. Parnia

    These may sound like wild claims, but Dr. Parnia is confident in the power of this breakthrough technology. He is so confident, in fact, that he even wrote a book called Erasing Death, which deals in depth with the subject of so-called modern resuscitation science and how it has the potential to literally change the course of history. If the 1,514 people who died after the Titanic sunk back in 1912 had died today, for instance, all of them could have been brought back to life using modern resuscitation techniques, claims Dr. Parnia, and the catastrophe could have been completely avoided.
    ——————————————————————————————
    I wonder what kind of stories those who have been dead for 24 hours have to tell after “coming back from the dead”.

    This reads real spooky to me…but I suppose it could happen……I have learned to never rule anything out in this world we live in now.

    This would surely ‘blow Obamacare out of the water’ !Obamacare is trying to kill us, and this doctor says he can save us up to 24 hours after we have died…….

    This procedure WILL NOT BE COVERED UNDER OBAMACARE…unless you are a politician .

  60. This will sicken you…………..
    and make you wonder how the human race sunk so low……….
    and possibly swear off the internet so as to continue to function as a human being……….wishing you weren’t informed…..fat, dumb and happy.
    Unfortunately it appears to be true.

  61. Fort Hood shooter convicted on all counts of premeditated murder and can be given the death sentence for his actions…….

    I will almost bet if he is given a death sentence for killing those 13 soldiers and wounding over 30 more at the Fort Hood overseas deployment center, that Mr. Obama will stay that execution….do I have any takers for this bet?

    I think a good place to start will be to immediately strip him of all rank and pay. He does not deserve to wear the same uniform that our soldier wear. He has been drawing the pay and allowances of an active duty Major since this shooting happened….In all, he has collected over $350,000.00 while sitting on his jehad as* in a jail cell in Belton, Texas. In addition, it is suspected that most of his pay and allowances has been sent to overseas elements of al.Queada of which our soldiers are fighting.

    Please hurry with the execution sentence…so our pResident Muslim can commute it.

  65. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    RMinNC – I think my way sounds more “Absolutely”. Remember the 3(three) most important words in the American lexicon –

    1 – RATINGS

    2 – Cleavage

    As Ol’ Casey Stengel used to say – “You can look it up.”

    3 – “Absolutely”

  66. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    Sorry – “Ol’ Casey etc.” should be the last line.

  67. MR. BILL…let’s add L… E… G… S… to your list….I’m a leg man..I like watching them on Fox every morning..as a matter of fact…all day !

    I think .those are ONLY the three most important words in modern journalism…..let’s make that four.

    “For want of a nail…………”

    You know the rest of the story…..if you think your way is better….who am I to argue the point…..so be it.

    What was that gem Stengel’s baseball catcher use to say…”When you come to a fork in the road, take it”…or something like that.

    Now those two were not the brightest bulbs in the pack, and neither did their elevators go to the top floor !

  68. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    RNinNC – Then your statement should be “The 4 most important letters in my alphabet are L – E – G – S ! Yogi and his team mates used to sit around and make up these sayings to sell more of his books. He was no dummy. and I think Casey holds more records for pennants and World series than any Major league manager. Here is a good statistic – He hit the first home run in Yankee stadium during the 1925 world series when he played for the Giants. You can look it up. He went to England as a member of the Giants World Champions and took his new bride Edna and got to meet King George 5th(V).
    I have a picture of Casey bowing to the King.

    I was not aware you were so knowledgeable on the Yankees of 1925……did you gain this knowledge first hand, or did you read it in a book somewhere?

    Obama’s DOD Publishes Military Primers Identifying Conservatives As Extremists And Haters

    Beware, all patriotic Americans who hold the Constitution sacred. Obama’s Department of Defense has labeled you an extremist and a hater; and with the help of the Southern Poverty Law Center they’re teaching military personnel how to identify you. The DOD warns that sheet-wearing KKK behavior has been replaced with “talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place”. The document, also, equates today’s Conservatives with Colonists fighting British oppression.

    Coming to a School Near You: Common Core Approved Child Pornography
    Posted by Gateway Guest Blogger on Friday, August 23, 2013, 11:55 PM

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/#sthash.3rcsaBiv.dpuf

    Common Core Education has sparked political controversy since the U.S. Department of Education decided to adopt its curriculum nationwide in both public and private schools. The Common Core website lists “exemplar texts” by grade which they recommend for reading and one in particular has some parents taking action. The Common Core recommends a book for 11th and 12th graders by Nobel Prize winning author Toni Morrison called “The Bluest Eye”. The excerpts from the book are too pornographic to post here but you can choose to read them here at this link. The Bluest Eye depicts detailed accounts of incest, rape and pedophilia as “friendly”, “innocent” and “tender”. The biggest issue with the book is that the story is told from the pedophile’s point of view so the reader can become a “co-conspirator” with the rapist. The author purposely did not portray the pedophile’s actions as wrong so the reader can “sympathize” with the pedophile.

    Politichicks reported:

    Obviously the reason behind some parents calls for removing the book are the graphic depictions of incest, rape and pedophilia. And not just that, the book actually lets the reader see the depictions from the perpetrators point of view. In fact, the author of the book, Morrison, says that she wanted the reader to feel as though they are a “co-conspirator” with the rapist. She took pains to make sure she never portrayed the actions as wrong in order to show how everyone has their own problems. She even goes as far as to describe the pedophilia, rape and incest “friendly,” “innocent,” and “tender.”

  77. And just who do they think makes up the military and gives their lives for America still these days?….that is other than the politically co-opted traitorous weasels at the top!

The document, also, equates today’s Conservatives with Colonists fighting British oppression. No surprise, they categorize the 9/11 attack as a “historical event”.

    Judicial Watch reports,

    Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained educational materials from the Department of Defense (DOD) depicting conservative organizations as “hate groups” and advising students to be aware that “many extremists will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place.” The documents repeatedly cite the leftwing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a resource for identifying “hate groups.”

  78. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    RMinNC – I am sorry about the 1925 date. It was 1922. If you go to the below youtube you will hear Casey’s niece through marriage -Toni Mollett Harsh – explain the event at the then brand new Yankee Stadium. Move the time bug to 12 minutes. Read the comments and you will get the story connection.

  79. More begging from the ground in Benghazi goes unanswered by the Obama regime:

    (and you wonder why suddenly the regime is sending warships to Syria…to get attention off other lawless and traitorous purposeful failures….will put other lives on the line in order to serve and protect itself….how can our military leaders NOT protect its own when they are ordered to be sitting ducks and our homeland is further endangered by the un-named enemy in its own borders?)

    Team Involved In Tracking Benghazi Attack Suspects Being Pulled Out Of Libya

    “The administration had the information to go after the suspects, they knew who they were. The team begged for abilty to go after the suspects, the administration did nothing.”

    Via Fox News:

    Two weeks after the Obama administration announced charges against suspects in the Benghazi attack, a large portion of the U.S. team that hunted the suspects and trained Libyans to help capture or kill them is leaving Libya permanently.

    Special operators in the region tell Fox News that while Benghazi targets have been identified for months, officials in Washington could “never pull the trigger.” In fact, one source insists that much of the information on Benghazi suspects had been passed along to the White House after being vetted by the Department of Defense and the State Department — and at least one recommendation for direct action on a Benghazi suspect was given to President Obama as recently as Aug. 7.

    Meanwhile, months after video, photo and voice documentation on the Benghazi suspects was first presented to high-level military leaders, the State Department and ultimately the White House, prison breaks in the country have eroded security. U.S. special forces have now been relegated to a “villa,” a stopover for the operators before they’re shipped out of the country entirely.

    “We put American special operations in harm’s way to develop a picture of these suspects and to seek justice and instead of acting, we stalled. We just let it slip and pass us by and now it’s going to be much more difficult,” one source said, citing 1,200 prisoners escaping two weeks ago. “It’s already blowing up. Daily assassinations, bi-weekly prison escapes, we waited way too long.”
