Obama Keeps Making My Point

Posted by jemartynowski on July 24, 2009

I’m back! I’ve been busy and out of town but I’ll be posting again on current events. There’s a ton of stuff, but I wanted to touch on one thing:

Barack Obama is a turd. We knew this already. But then he said this:

“Right now, doctors, a lot of times, are forced to make decisions based on the fee payment schedule that’s out there. So if … your child has a bad sore throat, or has repeated sore throats, the doctor may look at the reimbursement system and say to himself, “You know what? I make a lot more money if I take this kid’s tonsils out.”

Now, that may be the right thing to do. But I’d rather have that doctor making those decisions just based on whether you really need your kid’s tonsils out or whether it might make more sense just to change — maybe they have allergies. Maybe they have something else that would make a difference.”

Now, let’s try to ignore for a moment that he basically just smeared most ear, nose, and throat specialists out there.  Instead let’s focus on that fact that he is making crap up and getting away with it.  How many people right now are going, “Yeah!  Those a-hole doctors are screwing me and my kids!”  First, if doctors on a wide scale, or even a small scale, doing unnecessary procedures, there’s already a law against that.  They would be sued and taken down.  Second, if it was a question of cost, it would usually be cheaper to take the tonsils out than to have a lifetime of allergy treatments, dumbshit. 

OK, that’s enough of that.  The REAL problem here is that some idiot politician will be in the business of making medical decisions under a socialist healthcare plan.  Do you really want a d-bag who couldn’t do anything in the real world so he became a politician making decisions regarding your surgery?  I didn’t think so. 

Hopefully enough people are starting to see this moron and his cronies for exactly what they are:  socialist jerks with a need for power to accomplish their goals.  Eventually, they will control everything we do.  I feel bad for our kids.

Donna Shalala (hehe) On CNBC Making No Sense

Posted by jemartynowski on May 12, 2009

Watch It Here!

Donna Shalala, despite the hilarious name, is an important person in our country.  She is the former Health & Human Services secretary which means people listen to her when she talks about things like socialized health care.  This interview from a couple weeks ago started about some swine flu or something I’ve never heard of but eventually worked its way on to health care reform.  The important sentence that I think is a prime example of the idiocy of the liberal mind comes at the 01:37 mark. 

She says that we are all paying for the uninsured one way or another because their health care gets paid for by all of us paying higher insurance costs.  Now, this is the classic “take water from the deep end of the pool, pour it into the shallow end and think the water is rising” thinking that liberals have.  Backwardly, she says that we need to change health care so that everyone gets insurance.  Yay!  Except that all that does is make us all pay it through higher taxes, not higher insurance costs.  So, all you’ve done is make it so that all of the costs that stayed in one sector are spread out through all taxpayers.  Seems dumb to me, but maybe I’m missing something.  It appears that the only way this could be better is if we are under the assumption that the government bureaucracy would be better at being an insurance company and deciding who gets what treatment and whether someone is worth living or not.  Is this what I’m missing?  The government would be able to do a better job of offering timely, clean, professional health care at the same or higher level than the country with the best medical care in the world?

Something tells me that nobody would agree with that.  Our government, with the exception of the one thing they’re supposed to do (defense), can’t do anything right.  I’m OK with that, because that’s what our founding fathers envisioned.  They just wrote a constitution that doesn’t allow idiots to screw it up too bad.  If we followed that document, we wouldn’t even need to waste our time pointing out the complete stupidity of those looking to take away individual freedoms.

Oh yeah, and I love the complete willingness everyone has now to admit that the crappy economy and the fact that Democrats were all elected is basically a blank check for them to do what they want and they’re happy about it.  Wow.  Just wow.
