There is no such thing as “free” health care. Someone is going to pay either you through taxes, doctors/nurses/health professionals through lower salaries and longer hours, individuals through denials of services and long waits. No one works for free and doctors and nurses are not going to be slaves to the system.
No one who loves freedom would want to give power over their lives to any time of authoritarian no matter how supposedly good the ideal is. The authoritarians (socialist, communist, fascist etc) are in it for one thing – control and power over you. Power to take the minutes of your life multiplied by hundreds of millions of people to enrich themselves and their cronies.
It is critical to remember that the smallest minority is a minority of one, the individual, and treating any minority as fodder for the plans of any majority, no matter what rationales are used to justify their actions, is immoral in the extreme. Who doesn’t want everyone to be healthy and happy? Who doesn’t want everyone to have health insurance if they want it? But those are not the questions. The questions Continue reading Socialized Medicine, immoral abomination
The BIZARRO Martin Luther King dream is being realized by President Obama and Justice Sotomayor. Justice Sotomayor and President Obama essentially say “Judge someone based on the color of their skin, not the content of their character.” Her repeated comments that “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life” (Judge Sonia Sotomayor, 2001 and others) show a temperament clearly unsuited for any court, let alone the highest court in the land. However, the politicians were much more concerned about not being labeled a racist, sexist than calling a racist, sexist, bigot what she is.
President Obama, it does not matter that Justice Sotomayor is of Hispanic origin or a woman. Just as it does not matter where President Obama’s relatives hailed from. Justice Sotomayor, it does not matter that you are of Hispanic heritage or a woman. It is terrible that both the President and a Supreme Court Justice would be so racist as to continue to worry about the color of someone’s skin, so sexist as to care about someone’s gender, and so bigoted as to worry about someone’s heritage, but there you have it: racist, sexist, bigots for both the Supreme Court and the Presidency.
Some suggested logos and slogans for US Health Care companies who are hoping to survive ObamaCare, the second image adds Geico and Aflac’s suggested versions – both groups remain since the second one is less kid-friendly:

I will vote adamantly against the interests of my district if I actually think what I am doing is going to be helpful. Representative Eric Massa (D- NY). August 15, 2009, Pittsburgh, PA (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXWmVBadWvU)
One usually thinks that people know what is best for themselves. It is called liberty. Gotta love this guy.
Back in April we had Tea Party Slogans, now here are some town meeting slogans:
Obama Lies, Grandma Dies!
Your health plans make me sick!
If socialized medicine is best…why didn’t Ted Kennedy go to Canada?
If Congress likes Obamacare so much, why don’t they test drive it first?
 Universal Healthcare  Freedom. You can only pick one!
Stop! You’re starting to scare George Orwell!
I am sick and tired of people who call you unpatriotic if you debate this administration’s policies. We should stand up and say, we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration! – Hillary Clinon
You can’t fix stupid, but you can vote it out!
It doesn’t matter what the sign says, they’ll say its racist anyway!
I mean, uh, uh, the, they, if you think about, if you, you think about it, uh, uh UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. right? The ah, no, they are, it’s the post office that’s always having problems.
President Barack Obama, August 11, 2009
Two points here:
1. If President Bush had stumbled over his words while off the teleprompter as much as President Obama did here (and most times when he is not reading from the teleprompter), we would hear about it for years.
2. It is unbelievable that telling us that the United States Post Office is the entity with problems is supposed to sell us on government run health care.
About 39 seconds in is where the quotation above begins:
“I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said Conyers.
“What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”
I guess, who cares what we’re voting on is Conyers philosophy. What a disgrace to the United States Congress.
If the Senators and Representatives can not UNDERSTAND THE BILL, it plainly is a TERRIBLE THING.
