GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Obama’s attempt to takeover health care

A line in the sand?

Hank Kalet

*** begin quote ***

And one of these options needs to be a public option that will give people a broader range of choices and inject competition into the health care market so that force waste out of the system and keep the insurance companies honest.

*** end quote ***

The problem is that with the “government public option” is that having it in the mix will destroy the insurance market.

Just like Catholic parochial schools can NOT compete with “free” public-paid government supplied education.

Once the government has it’s “nose” in the tent, it will destroy the marketplace.

For example, why should an employer pay for insurance when the employees can get it from the government without costing the employer anything. For example, the government will set the rules about what must be covered (i.e., hair plugs), and the “competing insurances” must cover it. For example, the gooferment will define the records its competitors will have to keep and waive that for itself.

The same reasons why we rejected Hillary-care are the same reasons we should reject Obama-care. It’s just a step in the direction of totally government health care.

Sorry, but we can’t afford this non-sense. Nor can we survive having Health Care a la the Post Office. Rationing, and lower standards, will precede outright denial. Dialysis for old folks is expensive. Neonatal is expensive. ERs are expensive.

Well there is always “medical tourism”. But where can we go?

QUOTE: Suitable for our congresscritters, politicians, and bureaucrats

Grass mud horse n. Wildly popular on YouTube, this mythical, alpaca-like creature was conjured by Chinese citizens to protest Internet censorship. Though the grass mud horse looks innocent, its Chinese name—Cao Ni Ma—sounds like “fuck your mother” in Mandarin.

For some reason, listening to the President on Healthcare, Barney Frank on Bill O’Reilly, and all the other people who want to tell us all what to do, this seems strangely appropriate!

INTERESTING: GSN’s CATCH21 strategy

Thursday, June 25, 2009

http://www.gsn.com/shows/catch21/

Contestants don’t seem to understand the strategy of the final bonus game.

The “power chips” allow a player to discard a card. What they don’t seem to understand is that they have to tale at least ONE card after they use a power chip. So they MUST use ALL of their power chips before they cover their last “less than 10” column. If they blunder and bust, then they lose their bonus. It really is sad. Seen to many players hold their power chips and be force to quit with power chips unused or bust themselves when they blunder past that “point of no return”.

Reinke’s Rule: Players need to use their power chips before making all their columns greater than 10.

It seems so simple to me.

Argh!
