For those of you who might be wondering about m;y health, I am happy to report that I have fully recovered and am healthier and stronger then I have been in over 20 years. My health was not my reason for my absence. I just needed some time away and appreciate your understanding. I will, however, be back right after the New Year.

Barack Obama's Health Care Reform...OR IS IT?

Editor's Note:  Many of you may have noticed my absence  in recent days and I felt I owed you an explanation.  

As you know, our 666 sites are all published by volunteers - which like with many organizations - we never have enough of.  I readily admit that I spend most of my time on our GoldmanSachs666 site and do my best to keep this one up.  While I don't place more importance on our GS666 site then I do on this one, the GS site does get more readership.  With our new design and layout, it is now easier for anyone to go to any of our sites and move back and forth between them.  Our hope - in this new design - is that you, our loyal reader, will view all of our sites, contribute, comment or pass them on to others.  If you would like to volunteer please contact me at

Now for the reason of my absence.  

On Tuesday, March 23rd, I had a heart attack.  The good news was that I was in the ER complaining of chest pains and was awaiting admittance to the hospital for "observation".  While waiting in the ER on a gurney, I had "the big one".  As one of the doctors told me I was fortunate to have been in ER as the reaction time in dealing with me was almost immediate - and it was.  I cannot thank the staff of Morton Plant Hospital's ER enough for what they did and how they responded.  They truly saved my life.

They stabilized me and quickly got me sent up to the Heart Cath Lab where another surgeon put a stent into the artery causing the immediate problem.  This was around midnight.
The "good" bad news is that I am still not out of the woods even though I was released Thursday and in general feel pretty good.  During the Cath procedure they found that three other arteries are damaged and baddly clogged and cannot be treated with stents.  I will have to undergo open heart bypass surgery to replace those arteries but must wait a month until that can be done.

In the meantime, I am back home  with some physical limitations - but they did not limit the use of my fingers or mind - so I can continue my work here at our 666 sites.

Now what is really relevant to all of this is my position within the health care situation that exists and how this new "reform" - or lack o f - is affecting me and how it will affect me as well as millions of other Americans.

Just before my heart attack, I began what was to become a series of posts identifying what is really inside the 2000 plus page "Health Care Reform Bill".  Today I ran across this video which in a little over 10 minutes begins to take actual pages and lines from the bill and read them to you.  It is - to say the least - shocking.

As I am now very much in need of health care and very much a part of a very broken system, I will be writing on my issues - and that of many thousands of others just like me.  To give you a teaser, I am amongst the 40 million of uninsured.  I am diabetic, lost my coverage when the company I was with was forced to close its doors which made me ineligible for COBRA.  In short I am in need of major, life saving medical treatment.

More on this and the Health Care slam down bill we now have as law.

Please take the time to watch and listen.  We all need to know this.  It is not an interpretation but a "reading" of the bill.  there are 11 more parts to this. It has already had over 3 million views.

  3. All this guy does is smiles....

    Acosta has received a loan modification offer – for which the payments are
    set around $200 a month higher than what she used to pay. If she was having
    trouble with the loan at about $850, why should she have any less trouble at more
    than $1,000 a month?

  4. Reuters Summit-Wall St cabal seen derailing serious swap reform

    * High-frequency spat a "classic Wall Street land grab"

    * Focus should be on risky derivatives: Kauffman's Bradley

    "There is no incentive from the moneyed interests in either Washington or New York to change it," Bradley told the Reuters Global Exchanges and Trading Summit in New York.

    "I believe we are in a cabal. There are five or six players only who are engaged and dominant in this marketplace and apparently they own the regulatory apparatus," he said.

    "Everybody is afraid to regulate them."

    U.S. and European officials are trying to craft new rules to regulate the $450 trillion private derivatives market in broad efforts to avoid another financial crisis.
