The first decade of the 2000's is now complete, finished, all done. Here's a recap of 2009.

Top 7 good things of last year.

07) Fugitive Doll (http://www.time.com/time/specials/packages/article/0,28804,1945379_1944626_1944636,00.html)
06) Hacked E-Mail Is New Fodder for Climate Dispute
05) A Dinosaur Named Zac found in Australia
04) Raptorex kriegsteini is discovered
03) Star Wars Clone wars on Cartoon Network
02) Robert Jordan's Book "The Gathering Storm" is released
01) Last but not least, God had finally taken away one of the world's worst pedophiles with the death of Michael Jackson.

Some bad things that happened last year.

05) Constant coverage of Jon and Kate + 8. I guess people sure like stupid shit.
04) Balloon Boy. Allegedly a boy named Falcon was on an escaped weather balloon. Parents put up the scam to be on television.
03) Reality television, and other crap shows are still going to be on.
02) Constant chatter about Michael Jackson. Blah, blah, blah, he's dead, get over it I have.
01) Obama Health Care scam is that much closer to being passed.

And of course a few good things that have happened to me personally.

I got married.
I got a promotion at work.
I got a few good reads, music, and movies.

Lets hope the next 10 years are just as exciting, provided we make it past 2012.

So what is it about the health care reform that's a scam?

The fact that if you don't have health care, you will get fined through the tax code and possibly face jail time.

First we learned that the major health care reform bills the Democrats are pushing included an "individual mandate" that would tax you up to $1,900 (or $3,800 for a family) if you didn't buy health insurance that Congress approves of.

Now it has been revealed that if you do not pay that tax, it is a misdemeanor with up to a year in jail and $25,000 in fines!

The source? A hand written letter by the Chief of Staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation written to Sen. John Ensign (R-NV), as reported in Politico.

Read it yourself here.

This is an incredible use of government power to force us to buy the product being sold by private insurance companies, and why FreedomWorks went to protest the insurance companies call for this "individual mandate"


I don't think the government should be allowed to force me to go to jail because I may choose not to have health care. That's what I feel the scam is.

Way to cite the source!

I had a previous post with more source material added into it as well. It's not that I don't think that people shouldn't have access to affordable health care, I just don't think the government should force us to buy something from private companies. Next the government is going to tell us we have to shop at Wall-Mart.
