Indyfromaz's Blog: The Thoughts of An Independent Arizonan

So this is what Democrats feel is wonderful and The Republicans refuse to deal with…
Next year, average benchmark premiums for Obamacare plans are expected to rise 15 percent more than they did this year, according to projections from the Congressional Budget Office.

“In 2018, the agencies project, the average benchmark premium will be roughly 15 percent higher than it was in 2017.
Additionally, premiums for benchmark plans are expected to rise an average of 5 percent each year from 2017 through 2027.

The budget office projects that average premiums will total $3,400 for a 21 year old, $4,800 for a 45 year old, and $9,800 for a 64 year old this year.

So what happened to it going down $2500? Hmmmm???

Additionally, the report finds that due to higher premiums, the number of uninsured individuals is expected to increase.

“For 2026, the agencies’ projection of the number of people…

Keynesian Economics and the Fallacy of Boosting Growth by Destroying Wealth

International Liberty

Keynesian economics is like Freddie Krueger, constantly reappearing after logical people assumed it was dead. The fact that various stimulus schemes inevitably fail should be the death knell for the theory, which is basically the “perpetual motion machine” of economics. Indeed, I’ve wondered whether we’ve reached the point where the “debilitating drug” of Keynesianism has “jumped the shark.”

Yet Keynesian economics has “perplexing durability,” probably because the theory tells politicians that their vice of profligacy is actually a virtue.

But there are some economists who genuinely seem to believe that government can artificially boost growth. They claim terrorist attacks and alien attacks can be good for growth if they lead to more spending. They even think natural disasters are good for the economy.

I’m not joking. As reported by CNBC, the President of the New York Federal Reserve actually thinks…

New Hillary Emails Warrant Special Prosecutor

Socialism is not the Answer

American Thinker

New emails unearthed by Judicial Watch confirm that the Clinton Foundation was in fact a pay-to-play influence peddling operation far more worthy of a special prosecutor than imaginary Russians colluding under Trump Administration beds. It is time for President Trump to keep the promise he made in the presidential debate to indict Hillary Clinton for her crimes:

About 20 minutes into the debate, Donald Trump delivered a menacing threat to Hillary Clinton. “If I win,” he warned, “I’m going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there’s never been so many lies, so much deception.” …

“It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,” Mrs. Clinton observed.

“Because,” Mr. Trump replied “you’d be in jail.”

The emails fully incriminating Hillary are part of…

Socialism is not the Answer

Oath Keepers

by Shorty Dawkins

In the following video, Candace Owens, of Red Pill Black, expresses her feelings on celebrities using their celebrity to advocate political and social opinions. It is not that they don’t have the right to speak out, as every American has Freedom of Speech. No, it is the plain and simple fact that NOBODY CARES!

Do I care what George Clooney, Madonna, Alec Baldwin, or a host of other brainless celebrities have to say about subjects other than their profession? No. Why should I? They offer only parroted versions of the Elite’s propaganda. Why should I waste my time listening to them?

When movie stars choose to speak out and insult me for being a thinking human being, they merely encourage me to boycott their movies. When sports figures do the same, I don’t bother with their sport. They apparently don’t get it that it is…

Poll’s Warning for GOP: Back the Trump Agenda or Face Defeat in 2018


By: Timothy Daughtry

Poll’s Warning for GOP: Back the Trump Agenda or Face Defeat in 2018

“You dance with the one who brung you to the dance.”

The wisdom of that old political adage might seem outdated in this age of expensive consultants, focus groups with instantaneous tracking of reactions, and micro-targeting of voters. But the McLaughlin & Associates pollreleased this week reinforces the wisdom of that adage for any Republican who wants to avoid defeat in the 2018 primary season and in the general election that follows.

The message of that McLaughlin poll could not be clearer or simpler for Republicans as they choose in the coming weeks between the agenda of President Trump and the agenda of the Beltway insiders:  The base that brought you to the dance supports the Trump agenda.Dance with your base and win.Dance with the Beltway and lose.

To be fair, elected Republicans face many practical pressures inside the Washington Beltway. There are always K Street…

Free Enterprise: The World’s only Successful Strategy for Poverty Reduction

International Liberty

In prior years, I’ve shared some videos with powerful messages with a common message. Grinding poverty used to be the normal human condition, but then rule of law and limited government enabled a dramatic increase in prosperity.

All these videos are worth watching. They show that misery used to be pervasive but then we became rich starting a couple of hundred years ago.

But there’s one shortcoming in these videos. They basically tell a story of how the western world became rich. In other words, they describe how North American and Western Europe went from agricultural poverty to middle class prosperity.

What about the rest of the world?

Well, there’s a good story to…

About Those Slaves In The North–?


The Leftists are totally committed to destroying any remaining vestige of the memory of anyone in the South who owned slaves, or who even thought about it,  but strangely, up to this point, they have said nothing about Northern slave owners or slave traders, and a look at the history will show conclusively that the vast majority of slave traders came out of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York.
The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsAnd how about the fact that there were more White slaves than Black slaves in colonial America? — jtl, 419

by Al Benson Jr.

We’ve been watching with bated breath for months now as those charming people in Antifa and Black Lives Matter have continued their Leftist crusade to smash and destroy all statues and monuments commemorating anyone in the South that might have been a slave owner–all the way back to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. These two Founders…

For the Snowflakes and other Loons

Vermont Loon Watch

A short dissertation for

the indoctrinated.

Here’s bit of enlightenment for those wishing to erase American history by the light of day or dead of night:

  • If you eliminate every statue on the continent, slavery and the American Civil War will still have happened.
  • If you have minimum wage skills now, taking down statues won’t change that.
  • If you’re up to your ass in college loan debt, exterminating statues won’t change that.
  • The nation will still be $20,000,000,000,000 in debt.
  • We will still be in a global economy.
  • A lunatic will still run North Korea who wants you dead.
  • Radical Islamists will still want you dead.
  • People who hate you now, will still despise you, perhaps even more.
  • Soros, Obama and the Clinton’s will still be sleazy and corrupt and you’ll remain a puppet for them.
  • The Department of Education will still not have educated anyone.
  • There will still be…
