Anthony Brown: Maryland’s next governor

Anthony Brown: Maryland’s next governor


Anthony Brown is a man of multiple accomplishments. As Lieutenant Governor for the last seven years and a Delegate to the Maryland House for eight years preceding his rise to the Executive Branch he has become extremely familiar with the mechanisms of state government. Lieutenant Governor Brown concurrently continues to serve in the United States Army Reserves with the rank of Colonel for which he has been a member for three decades. As a Harvard trained lawyer he distinguished himself there and during his tenure in the private sector. Support for him to rise to the ultimate job in state government has been increasing at an exponential rate. Endorsements have been flooding in from a diverse number of groups and individuals who see him as a man with ability and promise. Recently he was unfairly attacked by his opponent Douglas Gansler, Maryland’s Attorney General, who is also running for governor. Gansler complains that Maryland’s health exchange implementation was mismanaged under the tutelage of Brown. This erroneous assault on the Lieutenant Governor is a desperate maneuver by Gansler to curry favor with the public. Multiple factors come into play when establishing the sophisticated software and hardware to make the health exchanges a reality. Brown depends on numerous Information Technology personnel to provide accurate and truthful data to him, they didn’t. Lieutenant Governor Brown is on record stating he could have done a better job. His honesty is refreshing, as is his extensive resume. Lieutenant Governor Brown should be judged in his own right exclusive of the man he works with, Martin O’Malley. Brown’s personal and professional accomplishments far exceed the man he works for. Maryland’s Attorney General has abused his office in numerous ways and those affected have had their careers ruined. Douglas Glansler has used Maryland Courts in a deceitful manner to move up the food chain, he should not be given the key to the Executive Suite.  When Election Day comes, the title of Governor will be awarded to Anthony Brown.

America transitions from Democracy to hypocrisy

America transitions from Democracy to hypocrisy


Extolling the virtues of failure as he moves through his day, President Obama’s success can be measured in the number of lies he spews hourly. Democracy is no longer an essential theme for an Administration that has undermined every institution, industry and tradition in the country. Instead their sole purpose for being is to control every aspect of its citizenry’s existence. To bring this goal to fruition the Obama Administration has set out on a path of deceit so profound that it startles even their most staunch supporters. Worse, when the lies are revealed the massive cover up begins. Choose your topic: the massacre in Benghazi, Obamacare, Fast and Furious, the IRS assault on conservatives, fraudulent use of taxpayer funds are just a few of the insidious actions taken by an out of control Executive branch. America no longer functions by law, fiat has become the vehicle of control to implement the President’s agenda. Every wrongful action committed by the President has been submerged using chicanery to inhibit full disclosure of its intent and outcome. Most recently President Obama has utilized a variety means to deceive the public about key elements of Obamacare. America has only tasted the bitter fruit of phase one, the insurance exchanges. With their failures reported in all fifty states the Administration has maintained one script which obviates the truth. Obamacare’s basic algorithms are flawed, which is no surprise to the public who has to deal with them. Failure has been the core theme threaded throughout President Obama’s virtual usurpation of American culture, rhythms and infrastructure. He has misled tens of millions that the road to their futures depends on the work of others, not their own. With well-rehearsed demagoguery Obama appeals to his audiences’ weaknesses with the intention of retaining his power base. Hypocrisy is the new Democracy, left unchallenged, will become the template for future Administrations. For now a lame Congress and a left leaning Supreme Court have done little to impede America’s departure from Democracy. Perhaps the Administration should take a lesson from the Old Testament: thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor. Yet, I believe they are too busy planning their next cover up.

Phase Two; the Obamacare nightmare continues

Phase Two: the Obamacare nightmare continues


Derelict in their duties implementing phase one of Obamacare, the Exchanges, phase two will be a nightmare for those trying to bring this legislation into reality. Based on a series of fraudulent algorithms and guided by the legal elites in Washington the steps to failure are written into every page of this egregious Ponzi scheme. Three years was not enough time to establish the portals to access PPACA’s promises, then thirty years will not be sufficient to build the supporting structures and bureaucracy to manage its medical services. Complexity of America’s health care system is best represented by the number of facilities and people who support their function. With nearly six thousand hospitals, thousands of clinics and tens of thousands of physician offices to oversee the numbers only get worse when factoring in the people delivering services through these sites. Nine hundred thousand physicians, three million nurses, millions of auxillary personnel and an array of other health professionals combine to create an untenable situation for any government agency to manage. Yet this is the task Obamacare  has set-out for itself. To control costs one must pare down services, no doubt this was a primary consideration when this mess was originally envisioned. Under the traditional system MRIs and CT scans are available in hours to days, not anymore. Reflecting on the Canadian system, weeks to months will become the norm. Routine surgeries are not routine anymore. A vast array of bureaucrats will allow the privileged few into the operating suites. Bogus medical studies have already emerged, from quasi government panels, to dissuade physicians from performing certain lab tests, surgeries and procedures. Many have already been published, more are on the way. Mammograms were one of the first tests government officials attacked for overuse.  PSA testing, to determine prostate cancer, has been challenged by physicians outside this specialty working in Obama’s corner.  The parade of changes coming to traditional medicine will be alarming to the end-user, the patient, as Obamacare is fully implemented. Irony has a way of uncovering deception. Those who pushed this legislation through will be hammered by the same rules which will limit medical care for others. Phase 2 is the treacherous road ahead as the promise of more care becomes less in the face of skyrocketing costs and diminished access. The nightmare is just beginning, are you ready.
