Government Healthcare and the Moral High Ground

Here's the FIRST thing that goes under a Public Option

Check out this recently published essay regarding the potential consequences of a public healthcare option.

If we have a public option, and I’m paying for it, it gives me a financial and moral obligation and RIGHT to protect my (the government’s) money.  Therefore, if I’m paying for YOUR healthcare, there are going to be several changes I’m going to expect you to make – because, after all, we’re going to take the moral high ground on this like we do so many other things.

Editor’s Note:

I’ve gotten tons of hate mail recently, but it’s all been about the fact that we haven’t been posting.

Fact is, we have, sorta.  Our Delicious.com bookmarks generally reflect the issues and topics of the day, with less than 1000 characters available to us to comment on the topic. They’re updated several times a day, marking stories of note, things we intend to get back to you on, and good old fashioned Gem-Finding on the Internet.

(Yes, the Internet.  The next moronic fucker geek-wannabe I hear say ‘internets’ or ‘interwebs’ is going to get an earful from me.)

Not good enough, they say, do the same thing here.

Fine.  We’re not used to being so limited or making such tiny blog posts (seems a waste to at least one of us), but here goes – we’ll be doing more microblogging posting, and a great new (i.e. longer) post on the Lunacy going on in Twitter.

Enjoy

“Your warranty will be safe. In fact, it will be safer than it’s ever been. Because starting today, the United States government will stand behind your warranty,” President Obama said on Monday.

He just doesn’t get it.

Nobody is impressed with the United States Government being behind ANYTHING anymore…maybe he just hasn’t heard that yet.  Seriously – when was the last time YOU had a good encounter with anything or anyone from the US Government?  Would you want to have these people managing your healthcare, too?

What a fucking tool this Foreign Exchange Student of a president has become.  Ugh.

Moving right along, Media moves from Economic to Crime Fearmongering

Neighborhood watches are on the front lines in bad economy – CNN.com.

**** Pay attention here *****
This is how it starts….destroy the economy, fearmonger that a little bit, and then say that it’s increasing crime.

Gosh, we’re going to have to pass another Patriot Act type destruction of the Constitution to protect you from this terrible mess!

Civil patrols, deployed military, freedoms restricted.  Containment camps, um, er, “FEMA Civil Homeless Relocation Centers”…with barbed wire.
