OBAMACARE AND HOME INSPECTIONS
By Brujo Blanco
I read an article in Freedoms Outpost regarding Obamacare and home inspections. Now these home inspections are allegedly done for the children in the home. This Obamacare is going to be a financial and imposing problem unless it is stopped. Check out the standards that will be used for which homes are to be inspected:
“Families where mom is not yet 21. “
“Families where someone is a tobacco user.”
“Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities. “
“Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States. “
Regarding the standard with the mom that is under 21. Is this age discrimination? Sounds like it to me.
Regarding the crap about the tobacco user. I am not a smoker but smoking is not an illegal activity.
The one that I really take issue with is the standard regarding current or former military members. There have been Obama type comments about the dangers of military and former military. We are not living in a society in which the military is a group to be watched with suspicion. I guess the concept is that these people can strike at any time.
I really believe that Obamacare is not about healthcare but about control. Obamacare will make firearms a medical issue. Also, in the subject matter of this article Obamacare will also be used to access the home. I believe it is an excuse to get into the home and snoop. Perhaps they will make note of religious items, publications, patriotic decorations, and the presence and/or absence of guns. This will be an intrusion. There is a tendency for government to want to have regulatory authority to do an end run around the Bill of Rights. I believe that there is a place for safety inspections but not inspections used as a subterfuge to search a house. I am also a fiscal conservative and I am interested in what this program will cost. There will be a requirement for many government inspectors to be hired, trained, and deployed. I take the Bill of Rights seriously and I take them as restrictions placed on government and not on the people.

Report: Ravens sign S Hill (The SportsXchange)
The Baltimore Ravens signed former New York Giants safety Will Hill on Friday, according to the Baltimore Sun. Hill is under a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, which triggered the Giants' release of him in early June. Hill was suspended two other times in 2012 and '13 for similar offenses. Just days after Hill's latest suspension was announced, the Giants released him June 2.

Andy Gresh joined CSNNE's Arbella Early Edition to discuss whether or not the punishment was enough for his behavior.. "Should it have been more? Yes," said Gresh. "I think this is something the NFL CBA probably needs, you probably need some hard legislation in here when it comes to issues of domestic violence." -- CSNNE.com

Smith plans to meet soon with Commissioner Goodell (The Associated Press)
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith expects to sit down with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell ''in the near future'' to discuss any potential suspension for his off-field issues. Smith was sentenced last Friday to serve three years of probation and to spend 11 days with a work crew after he pleaded no contest to drunken driving and weapons charges. Smith said he hasn't had time to begin the work yet, and will do so as his time permits. Of the ruling, Smith said he is ''glad how it worked out.'' He didn't want to guess whether he would face a suspension from the league, and said he is unsure whether Ravens running back Ray Rice's two-game penalty Thursday for his offseason arrest for domestic violence provides any indication.

National Football League roundup (Reuters)
(The Sports Xchange) - Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been suspended for the first two games of the regular season by the NFL after his offseason arrest on an assault charge stemming from an incident with his fiancee. He is eligible to be reinstated Sept. 12, meaning Rice will miss key home games against division rivals - the season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals and a Week 2 tilt against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night. Bernard Pierce is expected to start in Rice's absence. The Atlanta Falcons agreed to terms with Roddy White on a four-year contract extension that runs through the 2018 season and could set the wide receiver up to finish his career with the franchise that drafted him in the first round in 2005.

Chargers' Rivers squarely focused on playoff run (The SportsXchange)
Year Two of Camp McCoy has arrived at Chargers Park, and quarterback Philip Rivers might just embrace a repeat of Year One. The Chargers opened training camp on Thursday, their second under coach Mike McCoy, and what does Rivers do for an encore? McCoy's up-tempo offensive approach was among the reasons Rivers had a phenomenal 2013 season. "I think's it's to try and win more than nine games and find a way to reach your ultimate goal," Rivers said.

Ravens' Rice suspended over assault incident (AFP)
Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice avoided jail time in his off-season arrest on an assault charge, but was Thursday suspended two games by the NFL over the incident. Rice was arrested in February and charged with simple assault-domestic violence after an incident involving then-fiancee Janay Palmer at a casino in Atlantic City. Surveillance video posted online by TMZ.com showed Rice lifting a motionless Palmer out of an elevator and onto a hallway floor.

Manning getting used to new faces on Broncos (The Associated Press)
Though his physical condition is no longer a big question mark for Peyton Manning, when he looks around at training camp, he must feel like he's starting over again. Manning lined up for his first snaps Thursday behind an offensive line that has been shuffled, in front of a running back who took only about 25 percent of the snaps last year and looking down the line at some pass catchers, who 12 months ago, were either bit players or playing somewhere else. The quarterback who thrived on the familiarity of playing with the same receivers - Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison - same tight end - Dallas Clark - and same running backs - either Edgerrin James or Joseph Addai - year after year in Indianapolis, is now having to adjust to a revamped offensive roster to start his third year in Denver. ''I've always felt the NFL does not owe you anything.'' But even by an NFL roster's constantly shuffling standards, the Broncos did some major reorganizing around their franchise quarterback - the 43-8 loss to Seattle in the Super Bowl exposing too many problems for the AFC champions to stand pat.
