Obamacare TAX on Royalty income- just one of the Obamacare tax hikes. Maybe the last ever chance to stop it.
Surtax on Investment Income (Takes effect Jan. 2013): A new, 3.8 percent surtax on investment income earned in households making at least $250,000 ($200,000 single).
Where is NARO on this? Where is United Shale-USA on this? People you need to save yourselves. Grass roots yourself and stop settling for organizations to do everything or nothing for you. We saw how one of Corbett’s latest laws slipped through the cover of darkness affecting royalty owners, and then there’s Obamacare. This may be the last chance opportunity to stop it. All Republican Senators need to jump on board with Senator Ted Cruz. You need to contact them. No more fraudulent Republicans. Call them today and encourage them to grow a spine.

This is an urgent update on the fight to stop funding Obamacare.
Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and John Cornyn (R-TX) -- the top two Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate -- announced yesterday that they will support "cloture" on the government funding bill, giving Harry Reid and the Democrats a procedural green light to fund Obamacare with only 50 votes.
Breitbart News is reporting that McConnell and Cornyn are using their leadership positions to pressure other Republicans to oppose Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) in their effort to defund Obamacare.
According to a senior staffer quoted in the news report, "Nobody is fighting harder to make sure Obamacare is funded than Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn."
This is the ultimate betrayal.
TAKE ACTION: Tell Senate Republicans to Stand With Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, Not Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn
We knew Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn weren't with us when they voted to fund Obamacare earlier this year. But then, under pressure from grassroots, they said they supported the effort to defund it. They even ran political ads in their home states to make voters think they were on their side.
But now, faced with the prospect of having to fight for the things they claim to believe, these Senate leaders have surrendered.
Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn have surrendered to Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and the Democrats. More importantly, they have surrendered to Obamacare -- the biggest job killer in America.
MELT THE PHONES
We can't let these turncoats force millions of Americans into this liberal train wreck.
Obamacare is unaffordable, unworkable, and it's unfair.
Please contact the other Republican senators -- even if they aren't from your state -- and urge them to OPPOSE cloture so the Democrats can't fund Obamacare.
You can find the list of senators at DontFundObamacare.com along with their contact information and where they currently stand on this issue.
It's very important for you to call senators today and urge them to stand with Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in the fight to stop funding Obamacare.
Time is running out. Obamacare begins in just one week. We must act now.
This country belongs to us, not the politicians in Washington. Let's make sure they hear us loud and clear.
Senate Conservatives Fund
Thank you fro paying for my social security and my medicare ! The gov put my ssa money and put in the general fund years ago :(
Sounds like the old trapper paid in for 40 years or so, and BTW the MED part D was also passed by Fraudulent Republicans in order to beat the Dems to the punch after the Dems had been whining for years that we needed yet another entitlement program.
Your kind wanted it so put your money where your mouth is and pay for it for once.
If only it all were actually TRUE!! Actually many children who had coverage will lose their coverage for various reasons including companies that will drop coverage for employees spouse and children to save money or their parents hours will be cut to part time. Keep in mind existing law requires an employer with enough employees (I believe the number is 50) to provide insurance to the employee. Many employers actually offer same insurance to spouse and family at same group rate. And some employers pay for part or all of this family coverage. And due to another mistake in the law those children who get dropped from coverage will not qualify for any subsidies so their parents or single parent will have to pay the full amount for their coverage at the exchange or seek private insurance. Of course they can COBRA for 2 years for a minor I believe but that is not cheap if the employer was subsidizing the insurance. Anyone who has left or lost a job knows COBRA is temporary until you can get employer coverage again.
The only one shafting the military is the idiot President we have.
Tell us how you really feel Renee.
With his support of natural gas over coal, that idiot President of yours is about to make many folks on this forum pretty comfortable for the remainder of their years.
He isn't MY president - he is a total lying fraud. I have no issue with gas or coal - it is my area! Drill drill drill, frack frack frack and mine baby mine. By the way, with 95+% of the EPA now shut down, I think I will go burn a big pile of tires and toss some toluene in my local creek.
Try this on for size.....a little long buy something to think on
It is a remarkable note in the history of the world that nations have only begun to prosper when a degree of goodness and virtue began to take hold among the people. It is also a sad commentary that nations have faltered in their progress when the level of goodness and virtue began to wane and even disappear among the people. With all of our advancements in research and learning, it is amazing that these two facts have been so ignored in our national education.
It remains an astonishing observation that in the midst of distressing problems facing America today at home and abroad, there is almost complete silence from our public officials concerning the need to strengthen and increase the level of morality and virtue in America. America’s Founders knew this was the only way to peace, prosperity, and freedom. Today’s leaders seem completely oblivious to this truth. Proposals and programs are being announced almost daily to correct certain ills in our society, but the airwaves are silent when it comes to encouraging Americans to renew their commitment to the only way to real national happiness.
During this month of September we celebrate once again the writing and signing of our Constitution – 226 years ago. It is appropriate that we review of the Founders’ experience and advice concerning the absolute necessity of maintaining a high level of morality and virtue in order to, as Madison said, “improve and perpetuate” what they gave us, for as Benjamin Franklin said:
"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Historian Gordon Wood explained the Founders’ meaning of “virtue:”
"In a Republic, however, each man must somehow be persuaded to submerge his personal wants into the greater good of the whole. This willingness of the individual to sacrifice his private interest for the good of the community -- such patriotism or love of country -- the eighteenth century termed public virtue.... The eighteenth century mind was thoroughly convinced that a popularly based government 'cannot be supported without virtue'."
Notice in this definition there is no place for government force in establishing or maintaining virtue. It becomes a matter of persuasion, mostly emanating from one’s belief in the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of one’s fellowmen.
In pre-Revolutionary War years, the colonists protested against King George by agreeing to non-importation acts. This meant that those businesses which relied on imported British goods would suffer, but to the freedom-loving Americans it would be worth the personal sacrifice for a much brighter and freer future out from under the tyranny of the king of England.
Virtue is identified with morality and with the divinely-proclaimed laws of right and wrong given in the Ten Commandments. Virtue means desiring to be obedient to the Creator's mandate for "right conduct." It is closely akin to the Golden Rule. It is the essential ingredient to righteousness.
In our quest for a higher level of freedom, prosperity, and peace in America, perhaps a personal assessment is in order from time to time to see how we are doing. Only as enough Americans improve in their private virtue will we see the result that “Righteousness Exalteth a Nation.”
It was just a few years later during the French and Indian War (1755-1762), that Franklin’s wisdom was put to the test. It is only one of many stories of history and one we have told before but certainly worth retelling.
The Power of God Saves Colonists From French Destruction
From 1755 - 1762 the Americans and the British were engaged in the French and Indian War. This war centered on who owned the land west of the Ohio Valley. Had the French won this war our country would of have been entirely different, it would have consisted mostly of what was then the thirteen colonies or the present eastern seaboard. The invisible fingerprints of Providence are to be found on several occasions. Early in the war the French sent a large fleet consisting of many ships and thousands of troops down the east coast to destroy any and all seaport cities. The following is what happened in Boston when it was discovered that this force was on its way to destroy the city.
At that time Boston was without the resources to defend itself. "Mr. Adams was as faithful a Congregationalist as anyone. But he could not quite be sure of his Uncle Peter's ferocity where the old faith was concerned. If the French were coming, they were coming because, like all the nations of Europe, they coveted more than they had. Meanwhile it was good the Governor had proclaimed a Fast Day to pray for deliverance from this present peril. Everywhere men observed it, thronging to the churches.
"In Boston the Reverend Thomas Prince, from the high pulpit of the Old South Meeting-house, prayed before hundreds. The morning was clear and calm, people had walked to church through sunshine. ‘Deliver us from the enemy!' the minister implored. ‘Send thy tempest, Lord, upon the waters to the eastward! Raise Thy right hand. Scatter the ships of our tormentors and drive them hence. Sink their proud frigates beneath the power of Thy winds.'
"He had scarcely pronounced the words when the sun was gone and morning darkened. All the church was in shadow. A wind shrieked round the walls, sudden, violent, hammering at the windows with a giant hand. No man was in the steeple, afterward the sexton swore it - yet the great bell struck twice, a wild uneven sound. Thomas Prince paused in his prayer, both arms raised. 'We hear Thy voice, O Lord!' he thundered triumphantly. 'We hear it! Thy breath is upon the waters to the eastward, even upon the deep. Thy bell tolls for the death of our enemies!' He bowed his head; when he looked up, tears streamed down his face. 'Thine be the glory, Lord. Amen and amen!' 'Amen and amen!' Said Massachusetts, her hope renewed. All the Province heard of this prayer and this answering tempest. Governor Shirley sent a sloop, the Rising Sun, northward for news. The Rising Sun found the French fleet south of Chebucto (now Halifax Harbor) and got chased for her pains. But she brought news so good it was miraculous - if one could believe it. The Rangers, a body of men commanded by Captain Gorman of the Boston, had gone, the end of September, to reconnoiter. The Rangers were mostly Indians, the French took them for Canadians and talked freely. Two of the largest French frigates had sunk in a storm, they said, on the Isle of Sable. The whole fleet was nearly lost, the men very sick with scurvy or some pestilential fever. Their great admiral the Duc'd Anville, was dead.
"A week later the news was confirmed by other vessels entering Boston from the northeastward. D'Anville was indeed dead; it said he had poisoned himself in grief and despair when he saw his men dying round him. Two thousand were already buried, four thousands were sick, and not above a thousand of the land forces remained on their feet. Vice Admiral d'Estorunelle had run himself through the heart with his sword. The few remaining ships, half-manned, were limping off to the southwestward, headed it was thought for the West Indies.
"Pestilence, storm and sudden death - how directly and with what extraordinary vigor the Lord had answered New England prayers. The country fell on its knees. Pharaoh's host overwhelmed in the Red Sea was no greater miracle. A paper with d/Anville's orders had been found, instructing him to take Cape Breton Island, then proceed to Boston - 'Lay that Town in Ashes and destroy all he could upon the coast of North America; then proceed to the West Indies and distress the Islands.' Storm and pestilence - why, it was like the destruction of the Spanish Armada! Governor Shirley said so, to the Massachusetts Legislatures assembled. Never had there been so direct an interference of Providence.
"'Affavit Deus,' said Shirley, 'et dissipantur - The Lord caused the wind to blow and they were scattered.' A day of Thanksgiving and prayer was proclaimed. From every pulpit the good news rang. Hip and thigh the Lord had smitten the Philistines. There was no end to the joyful quotation: If God be for us who can be against us?"(John Adams and the American Revolution, Pages 10-12)
Oh, that we would learn from our own history. Righteousness truly doth exalt a nation!

Very true but how does this apply to air traffic control, the interstate highway system and every other complexity that we have entangled into society.
I'm with you, Ken. Since when do we turn everything over to government? We're individually responsible to use our resources to help others all we can...and many of us do exactly that. We can't continue down the road of more and more and more government intervention or it certainly will end up destroying us. Someone, please explain to me why it is that if I earn more money than you do, thru my industry and effort, why is it that now YOU have a "right" to some of what I earned. You have the same possibility to earn that I do... We all need to share the best we can, but, it should never be the government that tells how, when, where and how much we need to share. That is our to decide...or it certainly SHOULD be!
