Vermont: soon to be booming with millions of people and businesses moving there for health care and lower business costs - the demand to move to Vermont will probably be so great, you'll have to get on some kind of "waiting list" to move there, once they pass single payer health care...
This should be the #1 story in the "news", because if Vermont gets single payer health care coverage for all residents, other states will follow. It happened with Saskatchewan in Canada: they went with single payer and the rest of the country followed. Everyone started moving there, businesses started moving their to save on paying health care, people with no health care moved there. There will probably be an upcoming fight about whether Vermont can opt out of ObamaCare to do their state level single payer health care coverage for all.
The Vermont Senate Passes Bill Establishing A Single Payer Health Care System In The State
The beginning of coverage
It was not until 1946 that the first Canadian province introduced near universal health coverage. Saskatchewan had long suffered a shortage of doctors, leading to the creation of municipal doctor programs in the early twentieth century in which a town would subsidize a doctor to practice there. Soon after, groups of communities joined to open union hospitals under a similar model. There had thus been a long history of government involvement in Saskatchewan health care, and a significant section of it was already controlled and paid for by the government. In 1946, Tommy Douglas' Co-operative Commonwealth Federation government in Saskatchewan passed the Saskatchewan Hospitalization Act, which guaranteed free hospital care for much of the population. Douglas had hoped to provide universal health care, but the province did not have the money.

How does House of Representatives Lou Barletta, the guy who was just mayor of Hazleton from January 3, 2000 to December 14, 2010 and led a costly crusade against illegal immigrants, escape any mention whatsoever in this article below about Hazleton possibly going bankrupt? Did Hazleton's bankruptcy problems begin on December 15, 2010, the day Barletta left Hazleton? Was "some other guy" mayor of Hazleton from 2000 to 2010? Or was it Lou Barletta? Then what's with him not being mentioned at all in this article? It would seem that the last mayor of Hazleton, who was in there for a DECADE, would have a LOT to do with Hazleton's financial problems right now!

As pointed out upthread, the AOL Board is comprised of individuals who represent powerful interests - ALL OF WHOM profit by the billions of dollars spent each political cycle. The incestuous relationship between business and politics begins and ends with campaign finance. The greatest threat to the "Fascist Quo" is the elimination of money from the cesspool of politics.
We the people at one time owned the spectrum, that being the airwaves over which we are now brainwashed, at our own expense. Michael Powell was directly in charge of placing your airwaves into private hands, for their control. He is now reaping the payoff from his corporate masters.
Web sites such as this, which make it their mission to reveal the total hijacking of the political process, and the utter fantasy of one-man-one-vote - are to be destroyed.
The solution is the total elimination of money from politics. It is not a requirement that the process of voting come with a price tag attributed to marketing. Setting aside a few public stations to telecast debates among local and national candidates, free of charge, 24/7, solves the problem.
The media companies have the greatest interest in ensuring that the cost of running for political office skyrockets year-over-year. They also control the message - in a medium formerly known as "news."
FOLLOW THE MONEY. They are reigning in control over the Internet. They did so at Firedoge Lake, HuffPo and countless other sites where free speech on certain topics is no longer welcome.
If you are using AOL over AT&T lines, you might as well be emailing the CIA directly - because you ARE.
