What is the best VA Hospital in the Washington DC area?
There are several, and I was curious how I might find out which is the best and the worst one to enroll in around the greater DC area.

Pesonal experience, or word of mouth, or Doctor to patient ratios might be some ways.

Any suggestions?

Why President Obama Fascist Policies Will Make Deflation & the Greater Depression Worse

April 26th, 2011

Why President Obama Fascist Policies Will Make Deflation & the Greater Depression Worse

How President Obama fascist policies will make the deflation economy and coming GREATER DEPRESSION worse.  Webster’s New World Dictionary defines fascism as:  A system of government characterized by rigid one-party dictatorship, forcible suppression of opposition, private enterprise under centralized governmental control, belligerent nationalism, racism and militarism, etc. See also NAZI – and defines Nazi as:  …Political party (National Socialist German Workers’ Party) … systematically eliminated opposition, and put into effect its program of nationalism… Note the word socialist!  So, a socialist/Marxist can be a fascist. Obama wins the tripple crown.  What’s the etc. for over at Webster’s, anyway?  Just say Hitler!

Since all the political power is now in one party, the definition fits.   The Democrats have control of both houses of congress and can pass any law they want.  This has given President Obama fascist force to suppress opposition from the Republicans, the Tea Party, the Libertarians and the conservative independents.  Most Americans are middle-of-the-road to conservative with only some 20 percent being true left-wing liberal.  The President Obama fascist policies of beating up on the opposition.  Like saying the Republicans drove the economy into a ditch. Bailing out the banksters and unions(GM’s unions got to stay while investors were wiped out).  Beating up on business. Bringing big swaths of private enterprise under government mandate and control – think ObamaCare. Beating up on western countries for past and present colonialism (the west must pay dearly for ripping off the third worlds resources was Barack Obama Senior’s socialistic dream; but it’s now our nightmare).

More socialism and more government controls like cap-and-trade and all his other wealth redistribution and increased tax ideas. Your taxes will rise too.  Yes, you! We will all pay and pay for this mountain of debt the progressives are hanging around the worlds neck.  All governments are Keynesian these days.  John Maynard Keynes advocated pumping downturns in the economy with stimulus money. The problem is stimulus creates violent whipsaw effects in the economy.

President Obama fascist policies aren’t even missing militarism.  He is the one that ramped up sending more troops into Afghanistan to appease the military industrial complex just after getting elected. 

Racist?  David Limbaugh’s new book, Crimes Against Libertyi> says he is deeply racist.  Obama spent years listening to his pastor Reverend Wright saying, “God d**m America.”  There is a new 10 percent tax increase on tanning salons.  Who, but white people go to tanning salons?  Sorry. Just funny.

 

The only thing missing from President Obama fascist policy is belligerent nationalism.  The Obama administration has focused on “hitting the reset button” and avoiding the “arrogance of power.”  Consequently, his weak position is saying to the world -the United States was crucial in establishing a system of global inequalities and poverty by an undue privileged few.  Is that more Marxist speak or what?   Karl Marx wanted capitalism to fail.  So does Obama. Russia, Iran, China and North Korea will just keep causing havoc because Obama will do nothing to stop them.  Obama is helping bring on world war three.  Stop him!

Then there is his stupid bowing to third rate political heads of tiny nations.  Why?  Doesn’t he know that is a sign of weakness.  I say he is doing it on purpose.  He is saying - thank you for giving me the Nobel Peace Prize and the one million dollars when I hadn’t done anything to deserve it yet.  The power elite bought and paid for their President Obama fascist first thing after his election.  A down payment up front to their new not so secrete socialist agent for a one-world-government/new-world-order fascist future .  Right under our noses.

In the area of foreign policy, the President Obama fascist intent actually threatens our national security and leaves the world more open to terrorist attack.  His policies are geared to hastening a crisis so that government’s size and control can grow larger.  Rahm Emanuel, Chief of Staff until he left the position on 10/1//2010 said, “A crisis is a terrible thing to waste.”  Why do you think Obama drug his feet and did virtually nothing for months in the Gulf Oil spill crisis?  The sinister message here is the Anglo American power elite will use every means to grow their new-world-order/big brother socialist fascist big government.  Now in a disturbing turn of events the IMF, International Monetary Fund, headquartered in a 12 story building right on the corner of H Street and Pennsylvania Avenues in Washington D.C. is ramping up plans to be the world central banker of the G-20 nations and big brother us all to death.  It blatantly plans to use “money as the medicine”  to build “peace through economic stability.”  It’s going to be cradle to grave control if we don’t watch out.  Total control of you and your children!  Is that what you want?  Watch out!  The IMF is out for domination at warp speed.  Forget about the World Bank and the United Nations.  The IMF is trouble.

Obama is beating brother Israel up over it’s Sinai settlements situation.  He pulled planned Polish and Czech Republic missile defense systems first thing when he got into office – a slap to democratic nations freed from communist control by the old Soviet Union.  He won’t pressure Iran.  They now have two nuclear installations. Obama’s policy of doing nothing with Iran has made an Israeli strike more likely.  Can you say World War Three! 

He campaigned that he would stop the opium poppy growing in Afghanistan.  Nope. Liar. Corruption and heroin money still buys guns to kill our own soldiers. It’s still a fact of life.  Poppies growing everywhere is bad karma. It’s heroin for crying out loud.  I also fault George W. Bush for not doing anything about this problem. 

Obama is constantly subordinating American policy to international consensus like the socialistic United Nations.  A global cap-and-trade commission will be the next giant leap toward a one-world government and the loss of what is left of our FREEDOMb>. 

Putin and Russia realize a nuclear bomb armed Iran is more of a problem to America.  Huge Russian oil income and a history of unrelenting propaganda against the U.S. mean they will keep up the war with neighbors.  With no peer pressure possible coming from a weak President Obama fascist foreign hidden agenda, we are in for more trouble.  This is all leading into WORLD WAR THREEb> that started with the 9/11/2001 World Trade Center attack, according to Robert Prechter. 

21st century American “Liberal Fascism” is a movement of the left leaning Democratic Party with a secondary smaller culprit the Republican Party.  So far, there is no visible racism or cults.  Let’s be honest here.  Fascism is when big business is fused at the hip with big government.  Think Hitler and Mussolini.  Obama has government owning 60 percent of General Motors or should I say Government Motors. Fascism!

Franklin D. Roosevelt’s, New Deal experimentation, was patterned after Russian and German fascism.  Both Hitler and Mussolini praised FDR.  They had similar policies like the New Deal in effect such as: setting maximum work day hours and minimum wages, a progressive tax system, state run schools, control of money, the constant growth of government and the military controlled by those at the very top. FDR started us down the road to socialism leading to the next and worse depression.  He even outlawed gold ownership and made up government jobs instead of lowering taxes which would have helped business create jobs that would last.  Instead the jobs disappeared when the d**m dam  or other government project was done.  FDR and his (hair) brain trust even decided low prices were the problem.  They sought to restrict supply by paying farmers subsidies not to grow or produce and thereby raise prices.  Even though people were starving!  We still have those farm supports and subsidies today.  They were never repealed.  What’s up with that?

Leftist intellectuals saw the New Deal as a good thing. Likewise, the President Obama fascist facts are:  Use the government to coerce people into preferred behavior.  Use the environmentalist movement as a smokescreen for taking more control of the citizens and funding pet projects.  Back a socialist health care movement taking 20% of a free economy and putting it under government control.  Did our congress representing only 20 percent of the people do this without even reading (or writing for that matter) the 2,500 pages of the act?  Wow!  Now, that is an example of fascism.  They don’t care what the law says as long as it means more government control.

American progressive thinking has a fascist
mindset!  “Enlightened” (anointed) leaders and technocrats like this Obama piece of work rejoice in taking away individual choice and the use of the power of the state to sway peoples moral and material well-being without even asking.  The anti-messiah is here!  We elected him to the highest office in the land!  Every law, regulation, rule, code, ordinance, permit fee, fine, citation, ticket, tax, influence, politician, bureaucrat, ambassador, agency and even lobbyist behind the anti-capitalist push for socialism and wealth redistribution is in an unholy marriage with fascism when they reach these exorbitant levels.  They are not following the CONSTITUTIONb>.  The new Republican platform says every law and act proposed will reference and point out the specific language in the Constitution enabling and validating it.  YES!  I’ll believe it when I see it.
 
The Federal Reserve and many in both parties of your government are in on a new-world-order/one-world-government 100 year long conspiracy.  They don’t care how it’s done or how long it takes.  There I’ve said it.  OUR FREEDOM FAVORING FOUNDING FATHERS would not believe what TYRANNYb> is going down.   Read the book, THE CREATURE FROM JEKYLL ISLAND 1994, by G. Edward Griffin if you don’t believe me.  Banksters as big brother.  Every word is true.

What we have today is one big “PRICE FIXb>!  It’s not FREEDOMb>.  If you tell me what to do and back it up with the police power of penalty of jail time or fine you are “fixing the market.”  LIBERTYb> goes out the window and a little more fascism leaks in under the door.  Of course, you get the increased prices, waste and and inefficiency of bigger and bigger government in the bargain.  Government was only 6 percent of the economy before the 1930’s depression.  Here in the middle of a deflation economy leading into the GREATER DEPRESSIONb> the parasite that is  government at all levels sucks in over 25 percent of the wealth. Government employment was up 10% last year,  while business unemployment rose 10%.  Who is getting bigger and more top-heavy here?  Where does it end?  Where do you draw the line and get the nightmare to stop and reverse?

All this government has lead to a credit inflation mania blow off commensurate with a 96% loss of value of the money in 100 years time.  A huge deflation economy and the GREATER DEPRESSIONb> are the only cure for credit inflation.  Even fiat money leading to inflation is a tax for gods sake.  Credit inflations always end in a deflation economy and depression, by the way. 

Let’s just not abdicate more freedoms and let government get bigger in this depression.

Free markets and free money (private gold money – not government paper gold – ha!) are  best for job creation.  Gold money would keep everyone honest.  It’s not someone else’s debt. Small limited government would mean society would have to take up the slack and peer pressure people into behaving.  Religion and the blinding light speed of the Internet would fill the vacuum of reduced government.  New grassroots services and individuals could be “whistle blowers” and “squeaky wheels” and “Squawker Geese”  pointing out potential problems and “bad apples.”  Don’t cockroaches scatter when you turn the light on them?  Same with a dirty politician, a fraudulent businessmen and a control freak International Monetary Fund.    

Go Libertarian!  Contract out a smaller government to the lowest bidder.  Keep an army though.

When “God is dead” again like during Hitler’s Auschwitzb>  you can bet law-making killed him.  Don’t let a President Obama fascist fraud fool you. Is this guy even a citizen?  Where is his birth certificate?  Impeach this fascist fanatic Barack Hussein Obama!

Washington DC call center offers home-based businesses greater professionalism

March 3rd, 2010

I’m a small business owner, and – like other small business owners – I’m always on the lookout for technologies and methods that will increase overall sales volume and help the company image. My business is based from home (good old Washington DC) and consists of myself and my wife; we like the size of the company and want to keep it pretty close to where it is. With the recession rebounding, we knew it was prime time to increase our sales volume, but we weren’t willing to bring another full-time staffer onboard.

It was an awkward growth period for us. We really wanted to be able to handle the volume of calls we were getting for orders, but we simply could not be on call 24/7. If we wanted to grow, we needed a solution that would accommodate both the volume of calls we were receiving and the off-hours we were receiving many of them. Our online storefront was handling much of the load, but the volume of orders we were receiving through email was even too much for us to handle.

A friend and fellow small business owner had been kind enough to have dinner with me to do a little brainstorming over some possible alternatives to hiring another full-time staffer. We sat at the table with a couple of beers and talked out some possible strategies for dealing with our awkward growth issues. The suggestion that I found most intriguing was bringing an operator answering service onboard. I’d heard the concept before: channel calls to a bunch of outside professionals and let them handle your customers.

Needless to say, I wasn’t exactly thrilled about the idea – but I told my friend I was willing to check it out. He emailed me a link to the website of a Washington DC call center. I was pretty surprised to find that the company had impressive credentials, boasting more than 45 years in the business and many trained staff members with close to 15 years at the company. Suddenly, a nationwide answering service wasn’t looking like such a bad idea after all.

With this operator answering service, I’d be able to designate a script and knowledge base to the company’s trained, courteous staff members. The company also empowered me with the ability to listen in on calls in real-time or review recorded transcripts or conversations of their personnel handling my customers. That was all the security I needed, and I signed on with the Washington DC call center the next day.

With the extra off-site personnel added to the team, we were able to greatly increase our sales volume while creating the perception that we were a much bigger company than we actually are. The way we run business now, you would hardly believe we are just a mom-and-pop organization working out of our home.

The nationwide answering service has helped us move past that awkward growth period. Now, we’re looking to the future and expect many more years in business at our current size.
