Seniors Tax Return

2 Comments

It’s that time of the year again!!!  THIS IS AMAZING THAT THE IRS WOULD QUESTION THIS SENIOR. Such a simple matter.

senior tax
I just received an audit on my tax return for 2012 from the IRS. It puzzles me!!!
They are questioning how many dependents I claimed.
I guess it was because of my response to the question: “List all dependents?”
I replied: 12 million illegal immigrants; 3 million crack heads;
42 million unemployed people on food stamps,
2 million people in over 243 prisons;
Half of Mexico ; and 535 persons in the U.S. House and Senate.”
1 useless President.
Evidently, this was NOT an acceptable answer.
I KEEP ASKING MYSELF, WHO The Hell DID I MISS?

Hackers Pose Significant Risk to Your Healthcare Data

Leave a comment

__________________________________________

Last year’s Heartbleed data breach exposed one of the latest dangers of living in a digitized world. With the entire healthcare system becoming increasingly reliant upon digital organizational systems, a patient’s most private information — prescriptions, records, communications, you name it — is vulnerable to hacks. While doctor-patient confidentiality and HIPAA legislation aim to keep your information from falling into the wrong hands, the rise of the Internet of Things and improved Internet connectivity across the board allows for data to spread through new and unpredictable digital channels.

Illegally obtained medical records promise huge sums of money on the black market, more so than customer or banking information, or even risque photos of famous celebrities. Certain kinds of personal information are very valuable for those wanting to pose as someone else in order to obtain medical care. And although there are dozens of cybersecurity-related legislative proposals before Congress, and some amendments have been made to certain pre-existing legislation, there is still much work to be done to safeguard patients against future health care data scandals.

The Heartbleed “mishap” incited a wave of widespread privacy and identity-theft panic from those within the healthcare sector, as well as from other professionals who were later held culpable for the dataleaks. It has become glaringly obvious that thousands of servers are vulnerable to attacks from outside intruders, and it’s also clear that unsophisticated Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates are, perhaps, not as safe as experts believed (and vastly inferior to CryptoComply modules).

The real question, then, is what can healthcare companies and individuals do to safeguard themselves against similar hacking attacks in the future? Some are confident that newly drafted legislation like FedRAMP, and amendments made to pre-existing laws, might be helpful towards that end. Ideally, the FedRAMP regulations will adequately address common security concerns, such as multi-tenancy and shared resource pooling, and provide a standard set of regulations that would ensure secure cloud usage in the Healthcare industry.

Human Vaccinosis: Minnesota to Expand the Spread of Vaccine Induced Disease and Illness?

Note: A hearing was held on March 18th, 2015 in the Minnesota Committee on Health, Human Services and Housing regarding the intended forced vaccinations of all Minnesota residents. Observers reported a massive number of pharmaceutical lobbyists scurrying in and out of the offices of committee members and other legislators offices. The vote to pass this assault on Minnesota residents passed 6-4. The audio for this meeting disappeared, apparently lost in transit during a 1 1/2  block walk between offices. (Gosh….I wonder how that happened?)  there is now no record of any kind supposedly of this meeting.

Before any decision was made on this violation of personal rights, the members of this committee would have done well to read “Vaccine Epidemic”, to understand the negative health related affects their decision could have on the state and what they actually voted for. Also, they might need a lesson or two in Constitutional rights and protections. “For the Greater Good” was not supposed to mean for the greater good of political campaign donations. ____________________________________________

“What other commercially available product is available on the market that openly declares that it can cause injury, illness, and even death and yet be so protected by government that a special court was set up to fend off the massive numbers of lawsuits related to vaccine injuries?”

Human Vaccinosis

Part 1 Vaccinosis was a term initially applied to dogs and cats that began suffering from the effects of multiple and what appears to be unnecessary vaccinations. Try as they might, the same manufacturers who also create vaccines for humans, along with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and various government agencies could not stop the obvious link to vaccine induced diseases and illnesses that was reflected in the human population also being subjected to multiple vaccinations. Unfortunately for all concerned, the growth of human vaccinosis has expanded to the point where vaccine induced disease is the new “normal”.

A heated debate is going on regarding the causality between vaccines, such as measles and anti-hepatitis B virus (HBV), and multiple sclerosis (MS). Brain antibodies as well as clinical symptoms have been found in patients vaccinated against those diseases. Other autoimmune illnesses have been associated with vaccinations. Tetanus toxoid, influenza vaccines, polio vaccine, and others, have been related to phenomena ranging from auto-antibodies production to full-blown illness (such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA)). Conflicting data exists regarding also the connection between autism and vaccination with measles vaccine.

I highly recommend that anyone on the fence about the use of vaccines read the book “Vaccine Epidemic” by Louise Kuo Habakus, M.D., and Mary Holland, J.D.. this book goes into great detail about the process used to getimg-book vaccines approved ( which appears to be minimal at best, and deadly at the worst), and also, how we are all guinea pigs in a massive experiment that has left in its wake, a trail of injury and death. Also examined is the failure of the CDC, HHS, and others to factually report the actual number of injuries and fatalities associated with vaccinations of all kinds.

Are we: Trading Temporary, Often-Self-Limited Infectious Diseases of Childhood for Permanent Vaccine-induced Chronic Illnesses That Last a Lifetime?

As one vaccine after another is shown to be deadly or to be failing miserably at preventing any disease, the rise of vaccine induced illnesses continues. The idea that multiple or combinations of vaccines can be administered containing a myriad of potent pathogens that enter through the bloodstream, cross the blood-brain barrier and intentionally infect the victim, attack the brain and various internal organs, is somehow producing a positive response that manifests itself in some kind of ethereal protection is ludicrous on its face.

Protect Your Right to Use the MN Vaccine Conscientiously Held Belief Exemption Without Obstructions!

The issue about whether vaccine science is safe and effective is a secondary issue.

The primary issue is about who makes vaccines and why they really want to force us to inject their vaccines in our bodies. That is something you need to know before the vaccine compliance SWAT team knocks on your door. Dees_Vaccines

S.F. 380/H.F. 393 are bills attempting to impose barriers on parents before they exercise their fundamental right to decline vaccines under MN’s legal exemptions!

Minnesota S.F. 380/H.F. 393 seeks to make opting out of childhood vaccinations more difficult for MN parents. Under current law, parents can opt children out of vaccination for medical reasons if approved by doctors, or because they hold conscientiously held beliefs if they present notarized forms to their schools. But, SF 380/HF 393 would require those parents to first talk to a Physician and obtain a statement from the physician verifying that the physician has reviewed with the parent information about the risks and benefits of the vaccines that is consistent with information published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.(emphasis, mine.  This is the last place I would go for relevant information on vaccines.)

Please help stop this attempt to set up hurdles for parents before they exercise their fundamental rights to direct the health choices and wellness path of their children.

Proposed Collection of Information on Wild Horses & Burros; BLM Requests Comments

3 Comments

The BLM is now planning to do a “knowledge and values study” on wild horses & burros using focus groups.  The focus groups are to include the usual special interest groups (the same ones that are so vocal against wild horses & burros on the BLM Resource Advisory Councils/RACs).

Most of us aren’t perusing the Federal Register on a daily basis, but an advocate alerted us to the notice below.  We should all ask WHO will APPOINT/SELECT the people who will take part in these focus groups.  The BLM proposes to have “guides” (a prepared agenda) for the groups, presumably to limit the topics you can talk about.  The questions/discussions will then likely be designed to lead you to whatever predetermined outcome the BLM wants.  Read HERE about the BLM and use of the Delphi Technique.

This is not free speech.  Will the topics include the delay of the issuance of the investigation report of the 1,700 wild horses Tom Davis bought?  Will the focus groups be updated on the current number of deaths of wild horses at the BLM’s Scott City, Kansas feedlot?  Will the participants be able to review any vet reports or necropsy reports from the Scott City feedlot?

This undemocratic process seems to be a way for the BLM to feign interest in listening to the public,  while in reality, it continues its efforts to contrive what could seem to the public to be some sort of a consensus.

I wonder if the BLM will ever have focus groups or advisory councils on wild horse & burro issues that are composed ONLY of real wild horse & burro advocates, who all care about the welfare of the wild horses and burros (instead of special interest “stakeholders” who focus on how to get rid of them).  The comment period for this proposed focus group farce ends May 11, 2015.  This is destined to be another unscientific “study” as the BLM continues to operate like a dog chasing its tail.  –  Debbie Coffey

Foreign-owned mines operate royalty-free under outdated US law

3 Comments

Let’s say you own 245 million acres.  And underneath that land are billions of dollars worth of minerals – gold, silver, copper, uranium and more.  Would you let foreign companies in to tear up your land, put your water at risk and take those minerals without paying royalties?

You already are. That’s the amount of public surface land controlled by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the federal government’s biggest landholder. And companies that mine these lands are exempt from federal royalty payments.

And it’s happening right now.  Take, for example, the Dewey Burdock uranium project in South Dakota.  It encompasses 240 acres of public surface land, plus more than 4,000 subsurface acres of uranium-rich earth.

As of two months ago, a Hong Kong-based company had secured the right to mine and profit off that uranium, used to replenish nuclear power plants around the world, particularly in China.  In November, Hong Kong’s Azarga Resources merged with Powertech to become Azarga Uranium and manage the Dewey Burdock project.

Azarga will pay no royalties to the United States government.  Thanks to the Mining Law of 1872, which still governs uranium and other “hardrock” mining to this day, any company can extract and sell minerals from public lands without paying a cent in royalties to the federal government.

A spokesman for the mine, Mark Hollenbeck, points out that the mine will be paying South Dakota a severance tax, which is a tax on extracting nonrenewable resources.

Besides the royalties issue, some community members worry this mine will put their drinking water at risk.  In-situ uranium mining by nature takes place where there is groundwater.  The process involves injecting chemicals into the aquifer where the uranium ore is.  The chemicals leach the uranium from the rock, and the uranium is then pumped to the surface.  At Dewey Burdock, opponents are concerned that the radioactive, uranium-laden groundwater won’t be contained to the mining site.

Last week, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission released testimony from geologist Hannan LaGarry.  LaGarry found serious flaws in the company’s analysis of the groundwater geology.  He concluded that that there is a risk of groundwater contamination if the mine is allowed to go forward.

The mining company opposed the release of the testimony.

In the U.S., the aquifer by law must be restored to its previous condition when mining is finished.  That means the water must be cleaned enough to put it back to its pre-mining uses.

A Hong Kong-based company has secured the right to mine and profit off the Dewey Burdock uranium project in South Dakota.

Gerald’s Story: Nursing Home and drug abuse of an elderly man

Patrice Gilgan joins us this evening to expose the abuse and drugging of her father at the hands of doctors and nursing home workers in two different facilities in Orange County, California.
The first instance of abuse both physical and with drugs occurred at Irvine Cottage Board and Care where Gerald had been sent to recover from brain surgery.  Gerald was drugged within 24 hours of admittance to the home with massive doses of Haldol,Seroqel and overdosed on morphine.  There was no prescription for the morphine.  Cottage Board and Care is operated by St Joseph Hospice, a Catholic enterprise.
At a second facility, Villa Valencia Skilled Nursing, (a St Michael Hospice and another Catholic owned  enterprise), Gerald was given 7 different drugs.  None of these drugs were to be used on brain injured or individuals suffering from dementia.  When Gerald was finally freed from this facility and hospitalized again, it took more than two weeks for him to respond due to the massive drug overload in his system.
Videos of Gerald, and of some of the abuse he endured are available on the you tube channel;  Ireland Dallas 
Gerald Gilgan was a retired New York City Fire Fighter.  This man did not deserve this callous treatment.  No one does.  Yet it happens to the elderly every day here in the US

The Final Financial Solution: Shoot the Messengers

“(c) The greatest boff of all belongs to the pharmaceutical industry and its standard-bearer GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).

We’re living in a cuckoo’s nest that would have baffled Ken Kesey. thFLBPYT2F Consider just three items at the top of our agenda.

(1) Astronomical military spending at a time when there’s nobody left in the world big enough to fight us, with the exception of international terrorists (of which the definition is any rebel faction in a Middle East loaded with factions, most of which we first created, then armed and now oppose, not because they’ve changed but because we have),

(2) the health care farce, which makes us the most expensive, least effective (at least #47 in the world) and largest laughingstock in the world, and finally,

(3) the final triumph of corporate governance in Washington, which is icing the decline and fall of both capitalism and democracy in one fell swoop.

Witness the final humiliation: Warren Buffett, the richest deckhand on this ship of fools, recently announced how he could cure all our ills in about five minutes: every time Congress screws up by deadlocking itself or filibustering over the people’s business, we suspend their Congressional salaries and munificent benefits, such as the real health care system they deny us. The result would be guaranteeing the immediate end of deficits, debt problems and unemployment. Inadequate, Warren, but like drowning lawyers, a good start.

Take the Pentagon (as Rodney Dangerfield might say: Please). While every politician is shit-hemorrhaging over the budget deficit, military spending has reached such ridiculous proportions that multi-billion dollar items (such as the recent F-35 horror) click automatically into place, even though nobody – including the Pentagon brass itself – wants the bloody thing. It’s just fixed, embedded national policy/corporate welfare that subsidizes the weapons industry. And just the other day, our formerly audacious hopeful President sent to Congress his endorsement of the largest Pentagon budget in history. More
