ThunderBall Films is successfully putting together the movie production of Escape from Paradise and has received a new LOI (Letter of Intent) from actress Bai Ling who starred with Richard Gere in the film Red Cross.

This includes a commitment from a CPA firm who does tax credit financing in Ireland, a possible location to film, as part of the package needed for investors – along with the CPA firm’s commitment to apply for and finance the tax credits if ThunderBall does shoot in Ireland and what portion of the budget they would provide.

Escape from Paradise – the Promotional Trailer

Obama, Obama, pants on fire

Obama campaigned on a public healthcare option for the American people. Now, according to Senate majority leader, Harry Reid announced that the said Tuesday night that he and a group of 10 Democratic senators had reached “a broad agreement” to cancel the public option.

Instead, the new healthcare bill will let people from 55 to 65 to purchase Medicare for a proposed $550 a month.

This is a far cry from Obama’s “public option,” loosely modeled on what other first-world industrialized countries.

First off, the proposed $550 a month shows a major disconnect between the wealthy nabobs of Washington and the American people. While $550 is dinner money for Harry Reid, or flowers for Nancy Pelosi, it represents a major chunk of whatever income the American uninsured may have.

Of course, if the fine and imprisonment for not being insured is large enough, $550 a month may sound pretty good.

The politicos, and their paymasters from the healthcare industry, contend that American healthcare is far superior to that of countries with “public options.”

Not quite – just look at the figures below to see how far ahead behind America is in its “quality” of healthcare.

America lags far behind other countries, and the situation is getting worse, especially with rising healthcare costs which are totally uncontrolled by that great American myth – competition.

The Great American Healthcare Scam, concocted by Obama and friends, will do little more that deliver 45 million Americans into the clutches of private health insurance companies.

A leading architect of the healthcare scam is sleazy Senator Max Baucus with $4 million in “contributions” from healthcare lobbyists. Baucus’ sleaze even extended to his girlfriend, Melodee Hanesa, for a United States attorney position last March.

But Baucus isn’t the sleaziest guy in town. Obama outsleased Baucus by having his people pull his promised “public option” at the last moment.

  • America the beautiful

    Doesn’t matter. Obama will complete his term. Or may even win another term. Just like Bush Jr.

    And America will stay peaceful and democratic, no matter what the jobless rate, the deficit, the obscene Wall St bonuses, the war in Iraq and Afganistan, etc. Even if bankrupt the world is willing to bankroll America through the trust in the US $. But not so for other countries.

    This is the beauty of America and its system.

    How comforting. Tell it to the homeless and the unemployed.
