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.

Ravens have ammunition to have one of better drafts (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
The Ravens should expect to land at least three eventual starters in this years draft, according to NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah. As a former scout with the Ravens, Jeremiah is familiar with general manager Ozzie Newsomes approach to the draft. The Ravens have eight picks overall, including four in the top 99. The Ravens also had four top 100 picks in 2012 when they drafted linebacker Courtney Upshaw (No. 35), guard Kelechi Osemele (60th), running back Bernard Pierce (84th), and center Gino Gradkowski (98th).
Did draft experts correctly predict Elam last year? (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
Are the Ravens going to take Notre Dame tackle Zack Martin? We went back and checked out how some of the top national pundits fared with their final 2013 mock first-round draft pick for the Ravens. Of course, the Ravens were drafting at No. 32 last year, so a lot more variables were in play last year than this year, when the Ravens, barring a move up or down, will draft at No. 17. A couple of national writers correctly linked the Ravens and Florida safety Matt Elam, but many did not project Elam as a first-round pick.
Will Bengals, A.J. Green work out long-term deal? (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
One of the things on the Cincinnati Bengals plate, business-wise, is dealing with a long-term contract for Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green, their most potent offensive weapon. Even if the Bengals do nothing about a new deal, Green is contractually bound to them for 2014 and 2015 even 2016 if they wanted to go the franchise tag route. Should Green be at all displeased about a lack of progress on a new contract, his options are limited, as PFT says. So thats why coach Marvin Lewis told PFT he isnt worried about a holdout.
Ravens, 49ers to hold joint practices in August (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
The Ravens and 49ers will hold four combined practices in Maryland following their Thursday, Aug. 7 preseason game at M&T Bank Stadium. They will hold a light practice together at M&T the day after the game, followed by three joint sessions at the Ravens practice facility in Owings Mills from Aug. 9-11. It will give Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh a chance to spend more time together, while their teams compete against each other. I called Jim about a month ago and asked him if he wanted to do it, and I wasnt really sure if hed want to, John Harbaugh told the Ravens website.
