Al Jazeera: Longer Lives For Women Smokers Who Quit Early



Cutting back on smoking is just one way America can cut its healthcare costs, without sacrificing freedom. Not by banning smoking just discouraging people from smoking all together, start with adolescents, as well as adults who've already started smoking, by simply saying to them. That if you choose to smoke, you do it at your own risk and no one else's, that people who've chosen not to. Smoke are no longer going to be forced to subsidize the poor health choices of people who have chosen to smoke. And you do this in a couple of ways, first through Anti Smoking Campaigns, Public Service Announcements that sorta of thing and forcing people who have chosen to smoke, to pay for the. Healthcare that they are going to need as a result of their smoking, instead of giving them free healthcare at emergency rooms, you have them pay for their own healthcare that will be needed as. A result of their smoking, through tobacco taxes, tax tobacco to the point that it can cover or at least cover most of the healthcare costs that come from smoking.

When attacks get this nasty from whoever they come from and from whatever side, it just shows you how. Desperate and worried they are about losing, all of these Right Wing attacks that are aimed at President Obama. Are targeted towards people who are called Reagan Democrats, Working Class Americans who aren't thrilled about President Obama.

Salon: Greg Olear, The Weeklings: "If Only it Made Sense to Vote For a Third Party"

If only it made sense to vote for a third party

If you asked every Progressive in America, who they would prefer to vote for based on ideology, probably 99%. Or more of them would choose to vote for Jill Stein of the Green Party, she supports Single Payer Medicare For All when it comes to healthcare, she supports letting all of the Bush Tax Cuts expire, including. On the Middle Class, she supports a Constitutional Amendment that would ban private money in Federal Elections, she's not only against Corporate Welfare but would like to increase taxes on corporations. Eliminate a lot of Tax Loopholes and raise taxes on everyone, she's a dove when it comes to Foreign Policy and National Security and probably Law Enforcement as well, would like to cut the Defense Budget. By 50% or more and put all of the money into Social Insurance Programs, she supports the Green New Deal. Which would give the Federal Government a lot of power when it comes to Economic and Job Growth, similar to the 1930s with the New Deal with all sorts of new Federal Programs creating all sorts of new. Federal Employees and so fourth.

But as most Americans know, not all elections are about who voters prefer ideologically but who voters believe. Has the best shot at beating the candidate they prefer the least, which is why most if not all Progressive Democrats will stay home and vote Democratic in 2012 because they don't want Mitt Romney as. President to go along with a Tea Party Congress and they know that President Obama has the only shot at beating Governor Romney and in some ways they actually like President Obama. Which is just one reason why President Obama will probably be reelected in November, because of his base.

S. Palmer: Grace Kelly, The American Princess

Amazing Grace-
This piece was originally posted at FRS Daily Journal Plus

The United States has never really ever had official princess’s. The closest we get to that, is the First Lady of the United States, of course the wife of the President of the United States. And in many ways our First Lady, plays the role of a Princess. Someone without official power as it relates to government, but someone who represents the country wherever they go and does have the power to focus on causes she believes in. And push for things to advance whatever cause they believe in. Without the ability to officially require the President or Congress to draft legislation in behalf of their cause.

But the First Lady can bring attention and awareness to whatever cause or causes they believe in. With First Lady Michelle Obama its fighting against obesity in America. for First Lady Nancy Reagan it was fighting against illegal narcotics and drug abuse. But Grace Kelly is about the closest America has ever produced in coming up with a private Princess. Someone who possessed incredible beauty, hotness to be blunt or more accurate, baby-face adorable looks, incredible sex appeal. As well as the ability to act and sing and work with some of the best people who’ve ever worked in show business.
