Captain Z-Ro - Classic Sci-Fi Greatness

When I saw the dvd box set Classic Sci-Fi TV on the shelf at Super Target I knew it needed to be mine.  150 classic sci-fi television episodes at a very reasonable price.  Bought that!

Classics like Flash Gordon and Rocky Jones.  Other wonderful shows I discovered like Radar Men from the Moon and Phantom Empire.  But my favorite of all in the set came to be Captain Z-Ro.

Straight out of the early 1950s and starring the charismatic Roy Steffens and his young sidekick Bruce Haynes (Jet).  They make a great team as they travel through history.

President Obama not telling the truth once again on Obamacare

Yesterday President Obama gave a speech where he stated "They said this (Obamacare) would be a disaster in terms of jobs.  There is no widespread evidence the Affordable Healthcare Act is hurting jobs."  The spin-master was at it again.  Obamacare has not and will not have any affect on jobs he says.

Well Mr President here are the real facts.  Investors Business Daily is keeping a list of companies which have made changes already due to the coming Affordable Healthcare Act.  On this list there are over 300 companies are either adjusting hours downward or eliminating employees altogether.

Affordable Care Act? Obamacare doesn't look cheap at all to me

Now the information is starting to come out.  How much will Obamacare cost you?

The new Affordable Healthcare Plan has plans are organized in five tiers with different monthly premiums and out-of-pocket costs: catastrophic coverage, bronze, silver, gold and, in some areas, platinum.

Wow this doesn't sound like the best deal to me.  For just a middle tier silver plan the average cost will be $330 per month. $4000 per year.  That is just for an average health plan.  If you want something actually any good jack that cost way up.  But wait.  The mid and lower tier plans only cover an average of 65% of your actual healthcare costs.  So you pay $4000 per year and will still have 35% liability up to the cap.

If you are unlucky enough to live in a state such as Wyoming or Mississippi bump that cost up another $2000 per year! Wait.  There's more.  The deductibles are super high.

Do Americans really support Obamacare?

Of you listen to MSNBC and the Democrats they repeat over and over that the majority of Americans support Obamacare.  If you watch Fox News and listen to Republicans they will tell you the exact opposite that a majority of the American public do not want anything to do with Obamacare.

So just who is telling the truth on this one?  There have been six Obamacare polls conducted of the American public over the last two weeks.  Suprisingly every single one of the six polls shows a majority of those asked saying they do not want Obamacare.

Several Bogus Officiating Calls Doom TCU to loss against Texas Tech

Three bogus calls doomed the TCU Horned Frogs to a loss in Lubbock on Thursday night.  All three were monster calls that the officials flat out blew in a game that ended with a Red Raider 7 point victory.  A sad state considering TCU dominated the game in all phases.  TCU outgained the Red Raiders and held a whopping 12 minute advantage in time of possession.  TCU outrushed Tech 195-44.  The only thing that held the Frogs back were several  ridiculous calls by the officials. 

The first call came well after TCU's Brandon Carter had run back a 69 yard punt return for a touchdown.  After a along break the officials declared Carter had given a fair catch call when replays clearly show he had used his right arm to regain his balance before catching the ball.  In no way did Carter wave his arm for a fair catch.  That cost TCU a touchdown and all the momentum that goes with.
