the American way of health coverage is close to the worst and costliest in the developed world. The Affordable Care Act puts a dent in both those features, but doesn't eliminate them.

This was the year that millions of Americans learned that health insurance is complicated. The landscape they discovered is ugly.
Paying a premium doesn't mean your costs are over. Lower premiums mean higher deductibles, higher fees at the doctor's office, higher prescription costs. You may have to pay more to see a certain doctor or go to a certain hospital.
Then there's the bottom-line rationale for the Affordable Care Act, from its inception. As Aaron Carroll of Indiana University pointed out in a recent blog post, "reducing the number of uninsured is a good thing, not a bad thing." And that hasn't changed.

Commentng on an article about the Native American “church” (pre”tendian”) situation at ONAC Sugarleaf Rasta et al entitled
“The following email was set to Sachem Graves PRIOR to KM's decision to put our Mother Church on notice that we distrust them. We felt that we should go ahead and share it with you now so you're aware of what's in the works and planed for all ONAC churches future:”

I sat in a room two years ago with an ONAC representative and heard a sales pitch for a church. Five grand, he said, and you will be legally covered under ONAC's legally recognised and supreme court victory enshrined rights to use and distribute peyote, ayahuasca, and cannabis sacraments. Buy into our church, he said, and you will have a virtual license to exchange cannabis for donations legally and without fear of arrest, so long as we followed a particular set of guidelines. I asked some hard questions at that meeting, and did some looking into the true legal status of ONAC.
What I found was that ONAC had a single court victory, over a case in which founder Mooney was charged with peyote distribution and mounted a religious defense. He won the right for ONAC to use peyote among its members, but only within the state of UTAH. He did not advance his case to the federal level, and thus never got the same acknowledgement of rights from the federal government. They had no legally recognised right to use peyote outside of utah, and no legally recognised right to authorize others to do so either.
Yet that is what they sold, a legally recognised right to use and distribute schedule one substances, and the promise of legal assistance if any police didn't follow the law and allow it. "Your membership card puts police on notice immediately" they told us... This is what people paid five thousand dollars for. They claimed that their court victory gave them the right to sell the right to use and distribute not only peyote, but any natural sacrament including cannabis, san pedro cactus, ayahuasca, and psilocybe mushrooms.
Two years ago they were going around selling licences to deal drugs, and whenever someone got busted, it was always the same, the old faith-healer's dodge "You didn't follow the instructions and so our promise of protection is void", just a variation of "your faith wasn't strong enough and thats why you weren't healed". Mooney used this dodge on his own son.
So far, the war has claimed 10,000 civilian lives. Seven million people are on the brink of famine, millions have been uprooted, and a devastating cholera outbreak is raging and expected to affect nearly 1 million people by the end of the year. By the numbers, it’s currently considered the world’s largest humanitarian catastrophe.
Last year, Congress held a vote to block cluster munitions sales to Saudi Arabia after reports found that American-made cluster bombs were linked to civilian casualties in Yemen. With 40 Republican votes, it came close to passing, but still narrowly failed. Last September, there was a vote against a $1.15 billion tank deal with Saudi Arabia that received 27 votes in favor. And towards the end of Obama’s last term, the White House reportedly began to have reservations about humanitarian catastrophe the war was creating and it suspended the sale of precision guided bombs to Saudi Arabia.
Wahhabism (Arabic: الوهابية, al-Wahhābiya(h)) is an Islamic doctrine and religious movement founded by Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab. It has been variously described as "ultraconservative", "austere", "fundamentalist", or "puritan(ical)"; as an Islamic "reform movement" to restore "pure monotheistic worship" (tawhid) by devotees; and as a "deviant sectarian movement", "vile sect" and a distortion of Islam by its opponents. The term Wahhabi(ism) is often used polemically and adherents commonly reject its use, preferring to be called Salafi or muwahhid. The movement emphasises the principle of tawhid (the "uniqueness" and "unity" of God). It claims its principal influences to be Ahmad ibn Hanbal (780–855) and Ibn Taymiyyah (1263–1328), both belonging to the Hanbali school, although the extent of their actual influence upon the tenets of the movement has been contested.

Well ladies and gentlemen, as promised, we have some updated information for you in regards to the disposition of the state of California with Ms. Heidi Nelson-Grossman-Miranda-Lepp, aka "The queen" of the so-called Sugarleaf Rasta Church that's popped up in central California near the beginning of the year and has since spread and proven itself to be a disease to the California cannabis community. Note that those are not all her legal last names, just the pertinent ones, Nelson being her maiden, Grossman being the one she goes by publicly, Miranda being her current Legal last name, and Lepp being the one she's riding in our community for fame And is on record with the court charge for. We point this out for clarity for all and too, hoping it doesn't somehow gain her any undue slack.
One more thing we want to Again emphasize to All of any who May Still think it' wise and safe to stand with the Lepp's and their Sugarleaf Rasta Church scam... PLEASE be Careful! All of the state and federal Alphabet soup agencies ARE going to take them down, lock them away and throw away the key, at least for a decade once all this is said and done... it's not You guys they're after, it's these two pathetic Clowns...

An interesting thing to come of an otherwise quick and dull arraignment was that not a single of her boasted "Legal Attorney team" stepped forward to the court offering to represent Lepp! The reason we find this pertinent is because Lepp had openly boasted that if Any member of her so called "Church" were to find themselves in legal trouble regarding their illegal operations, that Lepp had as many as 13 attorney's who would jump to protect them.
