Admit it: There's a Problem

Posted by – 8/12/09

I enjoy reading opposing viewpoints. Especially when their view of the role of Government is so radically different than mine and they can still be honest about the bait-and-switch being presented to the American people as *real* Healthcare Reform. Camille Paglia writes:

You can keep your doctor; you can keep your insurance, if you’re happy with it, Obama keeps assuring us in soothing, lullaby tones. Oh, really? And what if my doctor is not the one appointed by the new government medical boards for ruling on my access to tests and specialists? And what if my insurance company goes belly up because of undercutting by its government-bankrolled competitor? Face it: Virtually all nationalized health systems, neither nourished nor updated by profit-driven private investment, eventually lead to rationing.

Nice to see that, though her political persuasion is entirely different than mine, she can also see the glaring problems with the plan(s) being floated before the nation. She points out the ludicrous rants by the likes of Pelosi aren’t even rational:

Blaming obstructionist Republicans is nonsensical because Democrats control all three branches of government. It isn’t conservative rumors or lies that are stopping healthcare legislation; it’s the justifiable alarm of an electorate that has been cut out of the loop and is watching its representatives construct a tangled labyrinth for others but not for themselves.

And while liberals, conservatives, and libertarians may disagree on many, many things, we should be able to soberly ask ourselves…

Are we like late Rome, infatuated with past glories, ruled by a complacent, greedy elite, and hopelessly powerless to respond to changing conditions?

I fear the answer is a resounding yes.

People are getting riled up about Gov't takeover of Health

But seriously, why on earth should we expect them to actually read the legislation that will radically transform one sixth of the economy.

And we’re seeing more and more of this scenario played out as congressmen and senators come back to their districts for the August recess. Hey, maybe that’s why some are laying low!

This does not bode well for Obama and his “We Know Better Than You” big Government types’ plan to destroy the entire healthcare system in America in favor of single-payer insurance.

Ted Kennedy and the Ironic Little Tumor

Ironically enough, Ted Kennedy would probably be dead by now if we had the socialized health care that he’s been pushing at us for so long. More on just how wonderful it is to get a brain tumor in Canada:

UPDATE: Also, the British are now enjoying the new trend of Self Dentistry!
