Nut Jobs Get Health Care Wrong Again

Once more, Helen and Margaret are two voices of reason in an increasingly whacky America. The fear of health care reform has spiraled out of all proportion. The British, whose benevolent health care system was under attack, mounted Twitter counter attacks to some of our more insane, less humane attitudes towards our failed health care system. Instead of well-reasoned conversations, people shout slogans at Town Hall debates, comparing Obama to Hitler, and holding up incredibly stupid signs. Here then, are H&M's words:
And what’s all this crap about killing your grandmother? Are you people honestly that stupid? This has become less an argument about healthcare reform and more a statement about our failed education system. Margaret, I don’t know what plans you’ve made up there with Howard, but down here with Harold, we have living wills to determine how we will leave this world when the time comes. Mine states that unless the feeding tube is large enough for a piece of pie, I don’t want to be hooked up to it. Harold, of course, says his can only be connected to him if the other end is connected to a bottle of single malt scotch.

Let's hope these two protesters meant to be ironic. Frankly, I think they demonstrate the level of I.Q. that these anti-health care reform people probably have.

I'd been getting tired of rehashed Liberal democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank, who are so predictable in their uber liberal stances. But all I can say to this exchange about health care is: I love you, Barney.

The lies being thrown around are truly insidious.

So, you demonize every American who objects to this shameless power-grab and pressure-group-payback disguised as "health-care-reform" because the MEDIA chooses to focus on a few loons?

I went to a Town Hall. No loons with signs about Asians killing Grandma. Plenty of people who know the Cost projections were WAY off. Plenty of patriotic Americans who came at their own expense and asked intelligent questions about specific issues. A good number who believe that the Federal Government shouldn't stray far from the role envisioned for it in a little document called the Constitution of the United States.

Oh, and a group of 20 taxpayer-paid Government Unions Goons taking a day off with Pay to chant "HEALTH CARE NOW!" Over and over again like demented talking sheep.

But I guess that constitutes "reasoned debate" to some.

Sorry, but there is FAR more lunacy, slogan-chanting, and fear-mongering on the other side of this issue. And far more people with the Facts on their side on the other.

I don't believe I demonized every American who disagrees with Healthcare Reform as it stands - I merely pointed out Helen and Margaret's funny (but inciteful) website, the loonies that held signs saying Youth in Asia, and the fact that I totally agree with Barney Frank telling that whacko woman holding up an Obama is a nazi sign that she's, well, a whacko.
