Nixon's enemies list and Obamie's Dime Droppers

Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, "facts are stubborn things."

The problem is that our Liar In Chief wouldn't know a fact if it bit him.

Scary chain emails and videos are starting to percolate on the internet, breathlessly claiming, for example, to "uncover" the truth about the President’s health insurance reform positions.

Yes indeed. Since Obamie doesn't know what's in the bill himself we have to assume that what is in it pleases his advisers. As I posted here.

"This civic republican or deliberative democratic conception of the good provides both procedural and substantive insights for developing a just alloca- tion of health care resources. Procedurally, it suggests the need for public forums to deliberate about which health services should be considered basic and should be socially guaranteed."

That is a fancy way of saying the government should decide what care should be allowed. That's a fancy way of saying "rationed." And "rationed" is a ten dollar word meaning someone decides who gets what. And "socially guaranteed" is a fancy way of saying it will be paid for by the government. And there is more:

"Substantively, it suggests services that promote the continuation of the polity-those that ensure healthy future genera- tions, ensure development of practical reasoning skills, and ensure full and active participation by citizens in public deliberations-are to be socially guaranteed as basic."

That means that if you have passed the test, you will be cared for. Perhaps we should, as Hitler's Germany did, encourage only our best and brightest young women get pregnant by only our best and brightest young men. The test will be in three parts. Intelligence, Physical and Political Correctness.

And what will happen to the rejects?

"Conversely, services provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed."

How do you spell "Into the oven!" in German??

"An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia. A less obvious example Is is guaranteeing neuropsychological services to ensure children with learning disabilities can read and learn to reason."

Yes indeed. That is one scary dude talking there. And who is he? Ezekiel Emanuel, health care advisor to Obamie.

But the White House goes on.

In this video, Linda Douglass, the communications director for the White House’s Health Reform Office, addresses one example that makes it look like the President intends to "eliminate" private coverage, when the reality couldn’t be further from the truth.

For the record, the President has consistently said that if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them. He has even proposed eight consumer protections relating specifically to the health insurance industry.

Unfortunately for the White House we have a video of him saying, in 2003 that he wants a single payer system.

Now I happen to favor that. Let's just expand Medicare and get on with life. Everybody gets the same treatment, everybody pays through a national sales tax and we keep the same delivery system.

Will it cost? Yes. But what we have now is expensive. The thing is Obamie won't tell you that. He prefers to lie.

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

In the Soviet Union and in Cuba they were called "Block Captains." Nixon had his infamous enemies list and now we have Obamie's Dime Droppers."

And the Main Stream Media and the idiots from Gollywood who worried 24/7 about losing their civil rights when Bush was Prez say nothing.

These people truly are a "Generation of Vipers."


What will Obama think of next??

Obama wasn't the first Democrat

Colorado's Democrat Governor Richard Lamm said the following... It was the end of his career.

AP (The New York Times); National Desk

March 29, 1984, Thursday

Late City Final Edition, Section A, Page 16, Column 5, 512 words

Elderly people who are terminally ill have a ''duty to die and get out of the way'' instead of trying to prolong their lives by artificial means, Gov. Richard D. Lamm of Colorado said Tuesday. People who die without having life artificially extended are similar to ''leaves falling off ...


Of course he complained and complained, as the link shows, that he didn't say it, that it was out of context, etc. Never the less:

Mr. Lamm provided excerpts from the 1984 speech, in which he spoke philosophically about the terminally ill of any age, about the extraordinary costs of high-technology medicine and about the ability of medical science to stave off death far beyond considerations of quality of life. After saying that society should be talking about the ethical implications, Mr. Lamm said, according to the excerpts: "We've got a duty to die and get out of the way with all of our machines and artificial hearts and everything else like that and let the other society, our kids, build a reasonable life."

Why do these politicians always hide behind the "spoke philosophy" bit? It is plain that the Democratic health plan has a basic cost containment rule that the elderly should be denied care. Been that way for 25 years.

NFL expands

The coach had put together the perfect team for the Detroit Lions. The only thing that was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn't find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl win.

Then one night while watching CNN he saw a war-zone scene in Afghanistan . In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Afghan Muslim soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away.


He threw another hand-grenade 75 yards away, right into a chimney.


Then he threw another at a passing car going 90 mph.


"I've got to get this guy!" Coach said to himself. "He has the perfect arm!"

So, he brings him to the States and teaches him the great game of football. And the Lions go on to win the Super Bowl. The young Afghan is hailed as the great hero of football, and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man wants is to call his mother.

"Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl!"

"I don't want to talk to you, the old Muslim woman says. "You deserted us. You are not my son!"

"I don't think you understand, Mother," the young man pleads "I've won the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm here among thousands of my adoring fans."

"No! Let me tell you!" his mother retorts. "At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn't get raped!" The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says,

"I will never forgive you for making us move to Detroit !"
