Rush Limbaugh: Regime Delays Obamacare Cost Caps for Those Who Qualify to Put Off Premium Hikes on Everyone Until After the Midterms - What I have figured out, here's the real reason I was confused, it's because it's been delayed 'til 2015, and these are consumer cost protections that have been blown out. These are the insurance companies being protected. The evil insurance companies are the ones that get this benefit. And I'm thinking, "Why do this prior to the 2014 midterms? Why not do something that keeps costs down for voters?" This is gonna cause everybody's insurance cost in every way you can imagine to skyrocket, because the insurance company can now make you pay anything they want out of pocket. There aren't any caps on it. Obamacare is called the Affordable Care Act. This was the affordable part, the consumer cost protections, the caps on out-of-pocket expenses. The caps on what you were gonna have to pay, that was the "affordable: or is the "affordable" in the Affordable Care Act. So what Obama has done -- and as the New York Times tells us, by the way, this has been up on a government website for months, but it was mixed in with a bunch of legalese and mumbo jumbo and nobody caught it, they didn't trumpet it, but the insurance companies here are getting a break, not the consumer, and that's what had me confused about this. The employer mandate has been delayed, and that, of course, the employer mandate requiring the employer to provide you insurance, that's been delayed. Read more........

(2) Please Help a Family in Crisis: Their Private Property is Being Destroyed for a Bike Path, Dayton, Ohio - Canada Free Press - Jennie Granato, a resident and tax-paying citizen of Montgomery County, Ohio, has found herself without a front yard and very little to show for it. Because the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC), as part of a $5M bike path extension, has begun to seize up private property for their “essential” project, including almost the entirety of Miss Granato’s front lawn. The bike path will come within seven feet of her front door!! The bike path is being forced by the MVRPC, a non-elected regional planning commission that is driven by federal Sustainable Development grant money – with no input from local residents or property owners. The local country commissioners and the township trustees are helping to enforce this program. Jennie and her family own a historic farm outside Dayton, Ohio. They have tried to negotiate and reason with this unelected planning commission. But the MCRPC has done nothing but ignore her pleas. And they have offered her only a pittance of compensation for this taking of her land. The fact is that Jenny and her family still own this property – YET the township has already come in and removed trees and dug up the ground! It’s her property!!! And now a great tragedy has occurred as Jennie has tried to fight this outrage. Just days ago, as the government bulldozers arrived and started their destruction of the front yard, Jennie’s 85 year old mother became so upset over the injustice of government ramming a bike path into her front door of her private home, she suffered a heart attack and died. Is this how our government now treats law abiding American citizens? The MVRPC is an unelected agency. Neither Jennie nor any of her neighbors voted to institute the agency or its policies.  Read more.......

(3) Albemarle Comprehensive Plan: Rural Areas Chapter Excerpt, page 7.12 - Transfer of Development Rights - Sending and Receiving Zones - Strategy 1i: Assess how a program for the transfer of development rights might be designed to redirect development potential from sections of the Rural Area with high-value natural and cultural resources. A tool for that has been discussed for many years and is now enabled in the Commonwealth is a transfer of development rights (TDR) program. In such a program, development potential from one area (“sending zones”) can be sold and transferred in order to be used in another area (“receiving zones”). To be a successful part of the County’s growth management strategy, receiving zones for density need to be identified. The sending zones should have high value environmental resources which would be permanently protected. Sufficient time is needed to develop such a program; however, assessing how a program might be designed is an important first step. Read more.......
