IRS and Fat Camps

So I am wondering a few things.  Will the IRS now be the collector of proof of Indian Blood. So I will have to show to the IRS my CIB (Certificate of Indian Blood) as well as those for my children.  Are they going to cross check the BIA rolls?  I wonder how many are trying to falsely get their CIB now?  Will I have to every year prove I am a native with every tax return or will once be enough?

Have you ever seen a BIA CIB?  I sure as S%^# hope that they are cross checking with the BIA and tribes to verify enrollment.  Will there be a sudden surge of Indian identity theft or outright falsification by thugs trying to avoid the “tax”?  I wonder if there will be a sudden surge in folks claiming that they are Amish?

I wonder what Elizabeth Warren will do?  Will her cookbook suffice as evidence enough?

Gee, I wonder what other proof they will require from us?

It is my understanding, I could be wrong… that the US Preventative Task Force will determine what is covered care for preventative services under the new health care plan.

The U.S. Preventative Task Force updated their website in June to show:

Release Date: June 2012

  • The USPSTF recommends screening all adults for obesity. Clinicians should offer or refer patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 or higher to intensive, multicomponent behavioral interventions.
    Grade: B Recommendation.

Furthermore their fact sheet goes on to say:

“Obesity is a very serious health problem in the United States, and in the past 30 years, obesity rates have dramatically increased,” said Task Force member David Grossman, M.D., M.P.H. “The good news is that even modest weight loss can reduce health risks for people who are obese. And, there is strong scientific evidence that shows that intensive programs with 12 to 26 sessions in the first year can help people manage their weight.”

So will this be the start of fat camps?  What if you don’t listen to the recommendation?  Who will run these fat camps?  They will be covered by preventative care, is this a one time deal?  What if you gain the weight back?  What if you don’t lose weight?  Will there be any penalties or consequences (aside from the obvious health associated risks)?

Will individuals with PCOS and thyroid conditions be exempt from the fat camps?  Oh I just imagine the flow charts to manage our care will be endless!

Until Next Time!

Hostile… A New Perspective.

I read this on Facebook today.  It really sparked in my mind this post and I just had to share it.

A 2nd civil war will errupt in America. Americans are very, very tough people. They didn’t beat the British, French and very hostile Indians not to mention the Mexicans, only to have a Rothschild sponsed war against themselves. Yes, push these people too far and you will see the real Americans come out! Only this time the Northerners and the Southerners will be fighting side by side.–Debra J Frank

I agree that Americans are tougher than they think we are. Me being an Indian (Alaskan Native and Caucasian to be exact), I kind of have to wonder about the very hostile part. It seems to me, that they were fighting for the rights that we (we as in Americans in general, the ones who care about freedoms), in current times are fighting for…
I guess the idea that they were very hostile, only gives light to how one might feel when their way of life is being *fundamentally changed* for them… I imagine that instead of viewing the Indians as very hostile, Debra might have a better understanding. Just as people are pissed about illegal immigrants flooding our borders, imagine how a Native American might have felt…

I think many will fight side by side for freedom. I am not saying what I am saying to be divisive. I am saying that it will be important to be very mindful to not allow the differences between us make us enemies fighting the same battle. Why do you think they play the race card so often? A divided people will not win.

The good news is I have FAITH that the people of America will win.

It will be hard.  I am reminded of the saying that “Nothing good comes easy.”  This will be hard.  Just as many things in life are not easy, but we know the reward for our hard work is worth it.  It may be hard to pull up the sleeves, to stand for your convictions in the face of someone saying that you are racist for not agreeing with politics of the current regime.  It will be hard to decide who is truly the enemy among us.  There is not differentiation of skin color.  There is no line of longitude or state line that divides us.  There is nothing except truly getting to the heart of someone and seeing what do they believe?

What are the common threads that are important? You know we all won’t agree on everything. What though, are we willing to unite on?

I urge you all to put aside the differences that can divide us.  To put forth the things that unite us.  To hold them high and stand in the face of difficulty.  Stand shoulder to shoulder with someone you might not have expected to in the past.

Stand with your fellow Americans in Arizona, Texas and California that want better border control.  How audacious of the Mexican government and Obama to be snubbed by Arizona’s law!  This fundamental change of ignoring laws, ignoring the needs of Americans and condemning anyone who upholds America, American Values and wants to preserve the nation and get back the American Exceptionalism.

I have compassion for the people of Mexico.  I am sure that I’d rather be here than there too.  BUT, do it the right way.  Go about it the right way.  Enter legally.  Become a citizen.  Speak our language.  If I had a say in it, you are NOT eligible for social security, government benefits until you have been here a specified period of time AND paid into taxes just like the rest of us.

The liberals/leftists/progressives might scream “Oh that’s not right, they will only make minimum wage!”  What about the American mother, with 2 kids?  She makes minimum wage…  I am sick and tired of this country’s “give me” mentality and lack of respect for our own people.  People used to make do.  They used to understand that it was through HARD work, determination and perseverance that the good things in life came to you.  Not via a government check because we all deserve it!

I went to a meeting the other day.  They were talking about the Medicaid and people being uninsured and woe about all the hoops that someone has to go through.  I felt like standing up and screaming “HOW many of you voted for Obama?  HOW MANY of you voted for Obamacare??? Don’t you realize navigating MEDICAID will seem like child’s play once his PLAN reigns supreme????”

I am all about compassion but you have to be healthy to be able to give.  You have to be strong in order to help.  Obama and his ilk are trying to destroy our strength and health as American people.  The fundamental change is at the door and people are seeing, “Hey, this is what he meant… ummmm wait a second.”  Suddenly people like Rush and Glenn are making more sense.

Stand united on the things that matter or we are doomed.

What do you think?

Until Next Time
