It would decrease the surplus population.

Well, that's certainly the Christian thing to do. YAY JEEEEZUUUUS!!!

Next up, replacing those pesky doctors who want to use medicine with people who can will pray the disease away, the way God intended.

Fireman service use to be free market also.

a) you could refuse to put out a fire if the owner couldn't pay

b) develop a system by which the burden of this service was shared equitably
 
2012-06-24 12:02:09 PM  
Yep, this sounds like something Jesus would support. Jesus also seems like the sort of guy who would be angered at even the thought of universal health care.

There was a case last year where firemen watched a house burn down because the owner hadn't paid his fire district fee.

Ah, I love the "pro-life" movement. If you're a fetus or a vegetable, they got your back. Between those two times, however, go fark yourself, you're on your own.

that was when I was 100% sure this was full of derp. Before that I was just 99% sure.

I guess he got tired of saying 'Barack HUSSEIN Obama'

Considering a huge chunk of medical costs go towards older people rather than poor people, I don't think they thought this cunning plan all the way through.
 
2012-06-24 12:39:02 PM  
Ah, Christians. This, among many other reasons, is why I despise you.

Not to mention new jobs in crime scene cleanup.

He'll claim he was joking and that we have no sense of humor.

Also, yeah, this is what "Christianity" is now.
 
2012-06-24 01:34:11 PM  
Hey, jackass...

It's ONLY emergency care that hospitals are required by law to give regardless of ability to pay...

And even then it's only till someone can be moved,

Yes, I can see you are bleeding profusely, Mr. Fischer, but without proof of insurance we can't help you. Perhaps you can check the parking lot for your wallet.

Christianity today is about the Old Testament, pretty much exclusively. At least the loudest Christians are. Conversely the Jews, who don't subscribe to the New Testament, tend to leave others alone and aren't nearly as judgmental.

Compassionate, Conservatives.

Nothing brings a family together like the death of a loved one. Families these days should really spend less time watching violent and sex-filled movies and video games, and spend more time at funerals together.
 
2012-06-24 02:27:57 PM  
Yeah. We definitely want to deal with a lot of dead people. Imagine being born into a farked up fate. Oh you got brain cancer? But you're eight and come from a poor family? To the grinder with you!
 
2012-06-24 02:28:06 PM  
Why don't they get back to what they do best - send shrieking letters to the FCC lamenting the whorish actions of Demi Lovato showing the back of her knee on Disney Channel that surely will drive their daughters to pulling trains for Communist hobos.

That's much easier than trying to explain to them how many hospitals count on the state and federal funding that comes with providing "uncompensated care"

Wouldn't that just be icing on the cake after a mugging... sorry, we can't treat you without proof of insurance or bond on file. You'll just have to bleed out while the police take down your info, and hope they catch the perp and find your wallet before you die.

When the Heritage Foundation invented Obamacare back in 1989, this is what they wanted to avoid talking about. But we now know that this is what they were thinking.

There are other good examples, like "Patriot" and "Affordable Care."

And the additional advantage of b) is that the system helps keep bad things that happen to other from spreading to you. Like forest fires in your analogy and airborne diseases for health care.

Axiom of Organization Names: The stronger the name of an organization attempts to convince you of the motivations of the organization, the further from those motivations the organization truly is.

ahh, but the forest fire is far more local/regional than the airborne disease. Wouldn't those who choose to live in more fire-prone areas be subject to some sort of premium to mitigate the overall cost of protecting their homes?

THIS.

Dominionist, prosperity gospel, anti-Christian values heretics are heretical and nuts to boot.

They are bad people and they should feel bad.

But it says right there in the Bible what to do. It's right there! Feed the poor, the rich are unlikely to attain salvation. It's written RIGHT FARKING THERE!!!!

using your logic, city dwellers should pay more premium than rural dwellers and party people should pay more than basement dwellers because of their exposure to other people and therefore airborne disease.

and i guarantee you people in fire prone areas are paying more for homeowner's insurance, so at least on the replacement end of things after the fire they're mitigating costs.

and assuming you're living in a suburb or city not a farm, any kind fire that happens to a next door neighbor could easily spread to you.

Oh, if only we could find the will! That would truly be a triumph. A triumph of the will, if you will.

Conservative Republicans long for the days of feudal obligations and the divine right of kings, so it beats me why they claim they are "patriots" of the American Revolution caliber.
