Wait a minute...

Ok, hold the boat for a minute. It's now LAW to have health insurance... This is you know the sketchiest insurance there is... When needed to be called on, its generally "too late" and when you die the insurance co pockets the left overs. The insurance company has nothing to gain in this law? And now I am being TAXED for NOT having this insurance?? This whole Obamacare thing stinks of Unconstitutional.
 And for those who in question of TAXED on something I don't have... You are fined on the Form 1040, resulting in a higher tax burden for NOT having health insurance.

PS

     My post titled "What are the chances" having received many comments does deserve a post script. Lets say you are Catholic (for arguments sake) born, raised and died doing all of God's Suggestions, hints and commandments. You are dead, heart attack, cancer, old age, what ever... you are standing at what
you would "assume to be the pearly gates" and come to meet, Zeus, Achilles, Apollo, Dianicess and the like. Standing at the front steps of Mount Olympus. Didn't see that one coming did you?

Healthcare or Taxes; you be the judge

Well lets look at this; Taxation without representation, a bunch of corrupt politicians, a president that is in office illegitimately (not born in the USA)  "Affordable Healthcare? Do you not see the way you are getting screwed? Even if you are getting a "tax return" (think about that, Uncle Sam holding your money with no interest) aren't you getting less? Affordable Healthcare is anything but Affordable.  Remember the Boston Tea Party... Taxation without representation? What if the "representation" is a bunch of corrupt individuals? Just think about that.

Really?

     One would think I was done with Samsung, but I will stick around and see if they "come to the light". My first experience with Samsung was a few years back, I acquired (got it free) a Samsung smartphone, yesterdays technology still on the market. At the time the Galaxy had been around and was up to Galaxy s3. I acquired the Galaxy Continuum; the first of the Galaxy line. Had some issues with that and went to Motorola for one phones life, about a year and a half; so here I am back at Samsung with the Galaxy s5. Everything was "cool" up till the last update. It never really crossed my mind so I didn't concern myself with the color of the dial screen; up till the last "system" update. It is now a hideous white, no lines separating the numbers. The only color to it is the title line, it is a reasonable teal green. All the rest is black fonts on a bright white background. As I said it is hideous. Through a call to my carrier, and snooping around the web, I found  the way to change this is "install an app". Now I am sure you know as well as I know; a free app will come with advertisements and who wants to buy an app just to change the color of a screen? The ads are, to say the least a nuisance; or am I the only one that clicks open an ad when trying to close a feature or program? So after about 5 install and uninstalls, a bunch of aggravation; I have now downloaded and installed an app just to color my dial pad. In this experience I also found out the "block notifications" with its handy calendar and time setting was removed from the system. I just found this to be true this morning at 3:00 am.  Which is the reason I had to incorporate 2 different apps today.

The answer is so simple

     I have been around for a good while now, and have seen the good, as good as it gets, and I have peered down the other side too. I hope that this writing will strike a chord with some. 
     If you want to get rid of the drug cartels and you want to keep drugs out of your childrens hands; some will still fall through but, take the crime out of the drug problem. Legalize drugs. Plain and simple, if you can buy it from a reputable outlet why in the world would you still buy it on the street. And yes there is a criminal element in the drug trade. Duh, its illegal. If it weren't the criminals would have no need for it. Remember back to the 1930's, alcohol was illegal, thus making some people very rich. Now I'm not saying drugs are not a problem; however I am saying its not a legal problem. The problem is a social problem and does not need legality or lack there of as an additional problem. Now, if you take the money being pumped in to fight this losing battle keeping prohibition as the answer and turn it toward a proven remedy (sobriety) I think you will get further in your battle against drugs. As was mentioned before, prohibition creates a business and our government has had dealings of this sort before (days of prohibition). So it does seem unlikely that our government would make the same mistake twice. Yet, drugs become a legal problem rather than a social problem. Are you seeing the same circle I am? Just my take on solving a problem.
