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.
