Inauguration Protest -Why it May Not Work!

In light of recent protests of President-Elect close to forty plus leaders stated they will not attend the Inauguration. The count is now up to fifty possibly due to the Trump Vs Congressman John Lewis tweets.

Facebook, memes, inaguration, protest inaguration, Trump approval ratingsI then began to see on Facebook, several memes of protesting the inauguration by not watching it on the boob tube. According to polls, Trump is at 40% favorable which dramatically dropped since his campaign. But why do I believe that this protest of a few will fail. We have heard that over 200,000 plus woman will march the day after the Inauguration and possibly more counting local area marches. Quite a few people, right? Yes and no.  I will explain.

How many times in the past few years, weather on the news or Facebook protests pleas to not fuel up on a certain day? Did they work?

Of course they didn’t work. Why? People still went to work, still filled up their vehicles, maybe a few were faithful and did not fill up on that day. Buses still drove kids to school. In order for this to have worked, you have to hurt them where it really counts to get the message across and we keep failing to drive the message home.

How do we get the message across, by being unified as a true nation like the recent protest of the Pipeline in North Dakota. People from all walks of life and different states came out to join the protest, day and night, not leaving, persevering and moving forward.

Gasoline market, hurt them by their financial gain, their bottom line much like our own wallets. The inauguration, for most of us is broadcasted on the networks which in that realm is TV ratings. Although, some may refrain of tuning in, some will be curious, tempted to take a peek, while others may think recording it might be an option, however some networks are able to gauge viewership that way too. For instance,

What many consumers don’t know about their DVRs is that in addition to retrieving scheduling information, they also share data about what you’re watching and when. You might remember the notorious Janet Jackson “nip slip” during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime performance. After the incident, TiVo released a statement calling it “the most TiVo’ed moment,” as TiVo users paused and replayed that clip more times than any other moment in the history of TiVo up to that point [source: Reuters]. While that in itself is interesting, the underlying point is even more revealing: TiVo and other DVRs collect your viewing information, and DVR companies are even using that data to release their own ratings numbers for recorded programs.”

That is why I think this will fail, we as a nation do not unite and follow through.

Let me know your thoughts.

 

Electoral College Vote – Why

In a previous post, Right to the Moon Alice I was asked a question. That question, “January 10, 2017 at 6:22 pm

“How could we have voted this monster into office?!!”

To answer this we would have to go back in history to our founding fathers whom are responsible for drafting that bill and placing certain people in a special group to decide who will actually get into office. I’ve blogged about this before and this is one of the things we learn in history class, provided the teacher is good.

The Electoral College was placed in the event that we the citizens of the United States were viewed as dumb and ignorant to place a person in office.

There are augments for both sides of the coin, perhaps they had reason to do so and this Jay Leno video gives enlightenment to that one aspect as to why.

So, if one of your friends or relatives has the same question, comfort them by saying, “WE DIDN’T” put this creature in office, the Electoral College did.

Tit for Tat

Tit for Tat a phrase derived from a 1556 English term “Tip for Tap”, a phrase used to describe “blow for blow” the 1935 movie “Tit for Tat” staring Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Mae Busch demonstrates this to a Tee. Our friend, Gary Loggins  could possibly give a better description of this movie than I.

The Twitter feeds have been exploding since Congressman  John Lewis whom most of know as an iconic leader in Civil Right Movements stated that the President-Elect is not a legitimate President.  This is a day where we are supposed to be celebrating Martin Luther King Jr march for Freedom for all, putting a stop of hanging, torturing, segregation, burning, bulling  and plain pissing on a person rights cause of their skin color. Instead, we get Tit for Tat tweet storms that is not solving anything.

Twitter wars, Trump Vs John LewisWhen will we as a society learn from our past mistakes?  “you punch me in the eye, I will punch you in the groin.” This appears to be the main stream these days. Kind of makes one fear the “Finger on the button”.

Trump tweet warsSometimes, this scribe forgets that we are dealing with a person that retaliates anyone that does not agree with him and get inline like good little sheep should. After all, sheep are very easy to silence than larger animals.

Medicael Insurance – Reasons for draining Your Wallet

To night Deb’s niece is celebrating her “Sweet 16th” and had to wait to make this post for the cable company was down for almost the entire Midwest section along with their phone system. I had to find their forum to find out it  others were having problems as well. (yes, I had to use data on the cell phone)

Recently Deb’s nephew came over and we got to talking about health insurance and the amount that he would have to pay through the company he works for if he were not on his Dad’s plan. I was alarmed, did some research and found some reasons as to why Americans pay through the nose.

I am no expert to say the least, but I do know how to research and find answers. I have always had my own theories like most of us do. for instance, CEO salary, most of us have seen some of their annual salary in various part of the Internet realm, media and so on.

In 2015, Expedia’s CEO made $94.6 million; Viacom’s CEO made $54.1 million. Expedia’s stock price increased 47 percent; Viacom’s lost 42 percent. Even with Expedia’s price increase, Sarah Gavin, their spokeswoman exudes, “This is a great example of a pay-for-performance CEO compensation plan.” Really, Sarah? Has the concept of ‘limit’ or ‘semi-reasonable’ ever occurred to you, or Expedia’s and other S&P 500 companies’ Boards?

Some very high wages, this part of article states, this is a great example of a pay-for-performance CEO compensation plan, kind of makes one sick knowing that some of these people receive so much when most are corrupt. Most of us know it is the job of the CEO to make the company profitable and produce revenue for his bosses the Share Holders.

This other excerpt comes from the Consumer Reports.

And if you’re wondering why you can’t get ahead financially, blame it on the fact that health care is eating your raises. Since 2000, incomes have barely kept up with inflation and insurance premiums have more than doubled. The average employer family health plan that cost companies $6,438 per staffer in 2000 shot up to $16,351 by 2013. That’s money that could have gone into your paycheck but didn’t because your employer had to spend it on your health insurance instead.

The kicker: We don’t get much for our money. In a 2013 Commonwealth Fund study of 11 developed countries’ health care systems, the U.S. ranked fifth in quality and worst for infant mortality. We also did the worst job of preventing deaths from treatable conditions, such as strokes, diabetes, high blood pressure, and certain treatable cancers. (See graph, below).

Why Is American Health Care So Ridiculously Expensive?

It would be nice to say that high prices are a bug of our medical system. But they’re a feature. They’re part of a choice we’ve made.

And for a very informative video by Vlogbrothers.

 

No wonder we pay through the nose on premiums and such. It almost paints a bleak picture of what the future will bestow upon us.

Let me hear your thoughts.
