This is the worst thing that could possibly happen to organ donation in this country.  I mean, you've just been through this tragedy, someone you love is on life support and you are being asked if they should be taken off life support so their organs can be donated, and in that moment of pain, you are given the extra horror of realizing that there's a possibility your loved one's heart could end up keeping Dick Cheney alive a little while longer.

Right.  A miracle.  Had nothing to do with the hard work of surgeons, nurses, other caregivers, research scientists, drugs, and government-funded health care.  Or if it did, it's only because your god "worked through them".

And the whole government health care thing is definitely a bad idea.  Except, of course, for your benefit.  So...

SHUT UP DICK CHENEY YOU COCK!

The U.S. Taxpayer pays for your health care, you dick. Shut the f*ck up and die already.

If we ever did go to single-payer, there still would be firms that offered top-tier health care, just like in every other industrialized country that has single-payer. You have a baseline of care, and if you want more, you pay for it.

But, you and your fellow assholes thwarted that effort. Now we have this bullsh*t. So, thanks.

Asshole.

He also is living with an interesting combination of paranoia and delusions of grandeur.  He had some of the functionality of his electronic ticker controller thingy turned off because he thinks that terrorists will "hack into it" and "assassinate" him.

http://rt.com/usa/assassination-cheney-heart-monitor-function-399/

1) I usually don't wish mental illness upon anyone, but I'm happy that asshole lives in fear that someone wants to kill him, and I'm glad that fear is apparently so great that it's making him do things against his own health.

2) Dick, you don't matter anymore.  If someone did kill you it would just be murder, probably not assassination since you no longer pose any political power and you never will again.  It most likely wouldn't be politically motivated; it would be personal.  You've pissed off 100s if millions of people, and have blood of several 10s of thousands on your hands, and you've recreated a mental health crisis for veterans, the likes of which we haven't seen since the Vietnam War.  It wouldn't surprise me one bit if someone is actively thinking about ways to off you.  But it would be murder, not assassination, since you don't farking matter anymore.

3) Why the f/ck would any "terrorist" want you dead?  You've done more to destroy this country than all of Al Qaeda and the Taliban combined could ever dream.  Every time you open your mouth you spout shiat that fuels teabaggers to keep doing stupid shiat that further hurts our country.  Anybody that has anti-American interests wants you to live a long life, and keep on talking.

jjorsett: I warms the cockles of my heart that Dick Cheney's continued survival can be the source of such aggravation to his enemies. It's also useful in making the veil drop and exposing their true inner selves: hateful, envious, and petty.


Petty?  Envious?  The man is a pretty much a war criminal, in my opinion.  You can call me hateful if you want, but you can't do it and defend the racism directed at Barack Obama by the right at the same time.

nekom: Tenga: Just curious, is it a crime to shiat on a grave?

Public defecation is probably a crime in many jurisdictions.  Go ahead and add criminal trespass if you sneak in at night (most cemeteries are closed at night).  You're not really desecrating a corpse as nothing is getting past that vault for many years.  I don't know why I actually bothered to think about that question.


Solution: shiat in a ziploc bag, take it to the cemetery during proper hours, leave your "respects" to the deceased.

No Cheney, a miracle would be you and your cronies being charged for your war crimes. You being able to live a bit longer is courtesy of the very people you wanted to send off to fight for your oil profits.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is:

Lionel Mandrake: SHUT UP DICK, YOU COCK


DarwiOdrade: NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, DICK!


Benevolent Misanthrope: SHUT UP DICK CHENEY YOU COCK!


Demetrius: SHUT UP DICK CHENEY, YOU COCK!

LOL, envious of what exactly? Petty? For thinking a war criminal should be brought to justice instead of gloating about his new heart? Hateful? Well maybe you have me there. As an American I tend to not take kindly to my leaders being war profiteering criminals.

People who defend Cheney are probably the same people who have "support our troops" magnets on the back of their trucks.

Yes. Clearly anyone who dislikes a man who pushed for a war that personally enriched himself and his friends, and whose company, when he was CEO, skirted sanctions with a country that was at the time (and later, *STATED BY HIM*) to be our enemy... well, anyone who could dislike such a man is a horrible, hateful, envious, petty person.

War Profiteers are, as we know, the most noble and honorable of all people, paragons of virtue who should be worshiped above all else. Truly, they are the exemplars of human nature.

How organ donation works: If you need an organ, you go on a list but it is a regional list and the matched organs come from that region.  There could be a match for you in San Francisco but because you live in Florida, you are on the Florida list.  You won't get the San Francisco organ.  What Steve Jobs and Cheney managed to do was use their status to get on all the lists in all of the regions.

yes, dislike of Cheney is all about us...it has nothing to do with him being a prick.

And Reagan was a tax-cutting tough guy who single-handedly toppled the Evil Empire!!!

I wish the heart was haunted by a monk or someone who might make him feel shame and empathy.

Here's the words in that sentence that are normally not associated with Dick Cheney: wish, heart, monk, feel, shame, empathy.

Here's the word in that sentence that is more often associated with Deck Cheney: haunted.

My old boss gave me 10,000 to 1 odds that Dick Cheney is actually being controlled from the inside by a smaller, insidious creature. I bet that $1 because you always take 10,000 to one odds, I don't care. We'll see whose stupid when that exoskeleton breaks down from wear and tear, or a hunting buddy out for revenge blasts it off.

Well, if he wasn't born with one he has one now, probably ripped it still beating out of someone's rib cage and ate it.  If he needs yet another one, you may want to lie low for awhile.
