Anyone care to try that intelligence survey of teabaggers? I would think just holding up another buffoon like Palin would remove all doubt that they are morons but things like this just make it that much clearer.

Let's do a poll and see what happens when morons with agendas do polls.

/she's been talking to me more and more lately...


People who currently receive free rent and a utility allowance and food stamps, and welfare are not going to pay.
Period.
It's not in their culture to pay for anything.
They want their government cheese.
And they don't ever expect to have to pay for soemthing they have gotten for free all along, health care.

They aare professionaly unemployeed and you aren't getting a penny out of them.
Try it.
They'll scream racism.
They call BO Uncle Tom.

They won't pay.
ever.

Bgnome: MrHappyRotter: Last month my granny got cancer in her gout and ended up in the hopsital so they could cut it out. But gots the diabetus and they told her they wouldn't do the cancer surgery so she has to wait for it to kill her. Thanks Obama. Your death panels are working great.

Did you meen gut? Because gout is a disorder not a thing... you can get gout because of cancer and it can be a symptom. If this isn't a troll then I would suspect that your granny has pancriatic cancer and fixing that is kinda like takeing a gerbil to the vet.
My stepfather passed away under simular circumstances except he had no insurance and dubya was the president.

George W Bush killed my stepfather


I think it goes more like this:
"Dear Free Republic Forum: I never thought anything like this would happen to me, but, last month, my Granny got cancer in her gout and......"

captain_heroic44: Shvetz: Sorry, but the people that believe death panels exist, or that "Obamacare" is out to get them, are generally the most gullible and vulnerable to these scams. If they believe everything they read in chain emails, what's stopping them from believing every phone call they get?

I'm so torn. I want to feel sorry for them because they're senior citizens. But believing in "death panels" requires willful stupidity. Is this a vulnerable population being exploited? Or angry hateful racist old white people getting what they deserve?


flup: I'm almost ashamed to say it, but part of me really has no objection to the idiots who actually believe this "death panel" crap being taken advantage of.


I'm not ashamed to say it. I'm sick and tired of these idiots and their willful idiocy invading our politics, dividing the nation and refusing to pay any attention to facts whatsoever. If they get assraped by scammers as a result of that willful ignorance, then it's karma.

If you're speaking of Obamacare, I agree.

so get the insurance already, you know you want to


No need. I;m covered by TriCare, and will be once I retire from the military.

Yes, it's government-run healthcare. No, it's not great.

Funny how the same people insisting we need single-payer were pointing to the VA's problems just a few years ago.

You wish.

WAit - if it's OK to call same-sex marriage anything but marriage, why can't the same rhetoric be applied to health care?

"No ma'am - this isn't 'Obamacare,' it's 'Spirit Care' which covers you against Obamacare, but AT THE SAME COST with a level of care AS GOOD OR BETTER than Obamacare!" ... and just send all the checks along to the government.

My wife is going to need insurance here in a few months and I was looking at Blue Cross of Oklahoma. Don't know now. If that baby has a condition switching the arteries does that mean the flow got reversed or something else. The article could have been a bit more explanatory as to what the condition actually does other than switching the main vessels.

...and you sound professionally ignorant. Also, I will scream "racist" while I point your direction. I am a white male who, while rehabilitating two and a half years from a disease that nearly killed me, recieved all the benefits you listed above from Los Angeles County. The County literally helped save my life. The second I was well enought to work, I started looking for work and was employed within 3 months. To this thread's point. I received free health care and I will gladly pay any tax or fee, as well as the portion of my paycheck to Medicare.

Please do all of us a favor and go down into your rapture bunker and don't resurface so we aren't subjected to your biggoted idiocy.

SouthernManDunWrong: I don't know what the fuss is about these death panels. Why do the leftist deny their existence? Haven't we read enough articles here to know that the Fed Government will deny coverage to a medicare/medicaid patient for the simplest of reasons? You may not want to call it a death panel, but it is the final result.

And when the government gets tired of all the miscreants that refuse to pay the fine for not having coverage, what will they do? Somebody will eventually go to jail for it. Otherwise, there is not any reason to comply with this rule.


Okay now we farking KNOW you are a troll, cos there aint nobody that simple, not even a 'Southern Man'
 
2010-04-25 08:06:37 PM  
It's funny, because all this "death panel" talk came about from a provision in the bill that deals with voluntary, Medicare-covered counseling session for people with their doctors to discuss end-of-life options. This provision was co-sponsored by Johnny Isakson, a Republican Senator from GA.

I am torn right now between the angel sitting on one shoulder and the devil on the other...

The angel side says "Be nice. Everyone deserves not to be scammed, no matter who they are."

The little devil says: "Oh COOL!! Those tea party types reject intellectualism, so all ya need to do to make a pile of money is to get creative with their kind of thinking. Make a bunch of fake medic alert bracelets that 'forbids' medical authorities from involving them with obama death panels, for instance. It would be fun!"

Sigh... I'd rather listen to the angel because I got a conscience thing going on. Unfortunately it seems to me kinda unfair that if you'd rather be an honest person, you are probably more likely to die poor. :-/
