Obamacare: No Reasonable Expectation of Privacy

As you’ll see in the video below, there’s “no reasonable expectation of privacy” in Obamacare.  If so, who is likely to have access to whatever personal information you input into the Obamacare website?  Other governmental entities?  All other governmental entities?  Private corporations?  Possible employers?

Is the lack of privacy on the Obamacare website merely accidental?  Just another one of government’s endless series of screw-ups?

Or, is the lack of privacy evidence that a fundamental purpose for Obamacare is to collect personal information on everyone who signs up and then freely disperse that information to everything that currently counts as, or is closely associated with, “government”?

Even though the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) has been described as President Obama’s “signature legislation” (the primary achievement of his administration), there are recent reports that President Obama doesn’t want his name associated with that Act.  In other words, Obama doesn’t want people to refer to the law as “Obamacare”.  

Even Obama is trying to distance himself from “Obamacare”.  

Maybe we could change the name to “Democare”–but I doubt the Democrats would agree to be tarred with that brush, either.   

Hmm . . . how ’bout “Anonymous-care” or “Faceless-Bureaucrat-Care?  Then we can’t know who’s responsible so nobody gets blamed, right?  Or, maybe “Terrorist-care” so we can blame Al Caida rather than Obama.  How ’bout “Commie-Care”?  Now, there’d be some truth in advertising!

Government’s “Protection” Racket


Is government here to help you, or help itself?  This video illustrates the idea of the government consumer robbing the private-sector producers.  (See, https://adask.wordpress.com/2013/11/20/the-risk-of-being-a-consumer/)

Jim Sinclair: Gold Going to $50,000


The following 48-minute video moves a little slow, but is a great lecture on the fundamentals of our current economy. More,because the video moves a little slow, it’s not hard to follow and grasp some fairly complex concepts.

Sinclair predicts that gold will rise to $3,500 before or during A.D. 2016. That translates into a 180% price increase over the next two to three years. That’s an average annual increase of 60% to 90% for each of the next two or three years.

He predicts that once physical gold is “emancipated” from paper gold (sometime after A.D. 2016), the price of physical gold will rise to $50,000 per ounce.

I can’t say that every statement or prediction by Jim Sinclair is necessarily true, but every bit of what he says is either true or very plausible.

I first published this article on November 20th with the title “The risk of being a ‘consumer'”.  Then I made made some significant revisions and republished a significantly “new” article on November 25th with the current title (“Notes on the Coming War Against Consumers”).  

 

Aldous Huxley (author of Brave New World; A.D. 1932) wrote that,

 

“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”

Adask on Sovereignty II

In my recent video presentation “Adask on Sovereignty,” I argued that the Founding Fathers created a nation where each of the people were deemed to be an individual “sovereign”.  That individual sovereignty was achieved by virtue of having received our “unalienable Rights” from God—as declared in “Declaration of Independence”. 

I supported this argument, with text from the A.D. 1793 Supreme Court case of Chisholm vs. Georgia which declared in part that after the American Revolution, the American people became “sovereigns [plural] without subjects”.

If my argument is right, We the People are individual sovereigns and the government is our public servant. If my argument is wrong, We the People are subjects and the government is our master.  The argument is important.

In the aftermath of the first article (“Adask on Sovereignty”) a number of readers disputed my argument based on the fact that the Supreme Court also described the people are “joint tenants in the sovereignty”.  According to these readers the definition(s) of “joint tenants” prove that the Supreme Court did not declare the people to be individual “sovereigns” (plural) but instead confided all sovereignty to a single “collective” of which we are each a member, but only as subjects—never as sovereigns.

Eric Sprott: We Won’t See An Economic Recovery

Eric Sprott is a self-made billionaire and precious metals advocate.

He’s a self-described “pragmatist”. That means he doesn’t waste much time studying esoteric concepts like U3 and U6 unemployment rates, M1, M2 and M3 money supplies, the velocity of money, and any number of theories that are incomprehensible to anyone who doesn’t have a PhD in economics.

Instead, being a pragmatist, Sprott deals with events in a common-sense manner. His common sense is confirmed by the fact that it laid the foundation for his billion dollar fortune.

More importantly, being a pragmatist devoted to common sense, Sprott doesn’t try to impress people with his vocabulary.  Instead he impresses with his ability to clearly communicate fundamental principles with ordinary language that most people can understand.

Here’s a video of Mr. Sprott’s presentation to the “Mines and Money” conference at Hong Kong in April, A.D. 2013. If you could grasp the fundamental principles presented by Mr. Sprott at this conference, your ability to invest and protect your wealth would be hugely enhanced.  This video is worth listening to more than once.
