Hospitals & Asylums 







June 2013


By Anthony J. Sanders


Tobacco is too harsh a mistress for my work on pulmonology, ear, nose and throat to get done as fast as the heart, brain and GI. I am halfway done with the entire textbook and my very status as a homo sapien seems to have brought into question the folly of clearcutting the land to construct a house in a month or year when a tarp structure could be strung up in the trees in a day and be built warm enough in the winter with a fire and natural materials, to sustain a writer colony. Unfortunately, the only place you can get a piece of land for a reasonable price seems to be a hundred miles from the nearest road, three miles from the nearest neighbor and fifty years ago. I'd cite Bradford Angier's work but I've been asked to leave the commune and am hitchhiking to the Fourth of July parade early. Internet use and to a lesser extent, as it is defensible as an artform, writing, are as tangible a social disability as leprosy, that is contagious with long term exposure, was, before they developed some nice colonies in Hawaii for them. I hope they enjoy the earth oven at the base camp to blaze the trail to the waterfall and mine along the creek and 10 x 10 plot of dirt and the patch on the fence shepherds the goats to pastures as green as the meadow, as much as I enjoy the stone desk and impromptu natural plank bench. I sincerely hope America learns to protect their writers from the social-democratic networking that bankrupted both the European Union and United States (were it not for my budget and appreciation of developing nation currencies).


Black Medicare and Social Security Commissioner HA-17-6-13


A bill to amend the DI tax rate to 2.61%, 1.305% for employees and 1.305% for employers under Sec. 201(b)(1)(S) of the Social Security Act 42USC(7)II401 and the OASI tax rate to 9.79%, 4.895% for employee under 26USC(C)(21)(A)3101 (a) and 4.895% for employers under 26USC(C)(21)(A)3111 (a) without increasing the overall 12.4% OASDI or 15.3% OASDI and Hospital Insurance (HI) tax-rate under 26USC(A)(2)1401. To require the Chief Actuary to account for SSI in the 2014 Annual Report of the Board of Trustees of the Federal Old-Age Survivors Insurance and Federal Disability Insurance Trust Funds. To require the Chief Actuary to account for Medicaid in the 2014 Annual Report of the Hospital Insurance and Supplemental Medical Insurance Trust Funds. To commission an empirical survey of Social Security beneficiaries by race at the request of the President, to investigate the possibility of statistically significant discrimination against blacks in the administration of social security benefits, aiming to redress this racial disparity with SSI on the rational basis of poverty under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 42USC(21)V2000d-1. To eliminate discrimination (disclaimer) against naturalization papers in the administration of social security cards, state ID and passports. To discuss paying for SSI with OASDI without raising tax rates until 2020 to reduce the deficit. To purchase the rights to the balanced federal budget for $1,000 and Hospitals & Asylums work in general from the author for $1,000 a month DI. Be it enacted by the acting Commissioner of Social Security Carolyn W. Colvin. The proceeds of the tax provisions of the ACA, which extends Medicare taxation to income, without limit, are not evident because they were stolen by the General Fund, but there is no cause for concern for the solvency of Medicare in the immediate future only interference with health care matters by the federal government. The names of the CMS administrator Ms. Tavenner and acting Chief Actuary Mr. Spitalnic warn against dependency upon health care providers who can no longer be relied upon for moral support, as of the annual report dated May 31, 2013 (nerds beware)!!!
