Need an indication the public education system has gone to hell in a hand basket? Just watch this video, and tell me we don’t need to take our children’s education back from the moonbats!

From now on, everyone is going to have to register in order to make comments. Sorry for any inconvenience, but some people seem to think they have the right to come here and be abusive. I’m all for civil discussion, well, unless I’m in a pissy mood, or extremely angry. Neither Chris, nor I, deserve to be treated with anything less than respect.
With what I’m seeing in D.C. these days, I’m seriously starting to wonder. The average age for the so called representation is somewhere in the 60 to 65 year old range? Somewhere in that vicinity. Evidently, the older you get in that city, the more ignorant you become. No wisdom, just power hungry. Term limits come to mind.
No country for old men, indeed
By Peter Lucas
IN THE SPIRIT of being a good American – a worker, father, grandfather, taxpayer, and a veteran who served in the Army during the Korean War era – I feel it is my duty to help the Obama administration pay for universal healthcare. After all, the president’s opponents claim he would ration healthcare and do away with old people. My country is calling.
But first I must point out that had friends of mine – who fought with the 1st Marine Division at the Chosin Reservoir in Korea, or others who saw action in Khe Sanh in Vietnam – known about Obama’s plan to help them die when they grew old, they might have thrown down their rifles then and there and joined the other side. After all, is there not some truth to the belief that the Koreans and the Vietnamese actually respect their ancients when they are alive, and honor them when they are dead? But maybe in this compassionate-less era, these beliefs are no longer true.
We don’t live in Mississippi, but we are close enough to know what’s going on via the radio. The only station we can pick up really well comes out of Corinth, MS, so we know more about that state than we do about the doings in TN (what’s up with that?). One of the Reps from down there is Travis Childers, a Democrat. Now, while I’ve heard a small number of good things relating to Mr Childers, the vast majority of reports seem to indicate he’s a typical Dem. In a recent interview with a newspaper, he was asked a few questions. Here are just a sampling:
Are there any misconceptions about the Democrats’ healthcare plan that need to be corrected?
There a lot of myths out there being spread by those who enjoy spreading falsehoods. I would urge people to go to the Web site and look at the bill. Just because someone sends you something on the Internet, that doesn’t mean that it’s true.
This is only a proposed bill. There are about 10 steps before a bill will ever get to the President’s desk for his signature.
You’ll excuse me when I ask…..just what are these misconceptions? Anyone who has bothered to read the bill that is being shoved at WE, The People, will know there are NO misconceptions.
Can you describe what you refer to as “myths” that are being circulated?
I don’t want to get off into the weeds, but (citing an example) that they’re trying to euthanize the elderly. That’s ridiculous. I’m amazed, honestly, that people would fall into a trap and believe that stuff. Please look at the bill. Do not believe mess that people send across the Internet with nothing to back it up.
No sir, YOU look at the bill! Have you even bothered to read it? You’ve got plenty of time now that you will be off on your “junket” to….where is it…Israel? Bill footed by the taxpayers, naturally. Piece of advice….they’ve got some really nice kubbutzim that offer all the amenities you could need, plus are much less expensive than your average hotels. Save a few bucks for the folks of Mississippi!
Do you think some people are using the bill’s description of “end-of-life” issues to reach that conclusion? The Blue Dogs, in your own proposal, also refer to “end-of-life” issues. Maybe that definition deserves further explanation.
Well, it probably does. But here’s the thing: we think the patients should be involved and know what their options are. We just think a patient deserves to know what their options are in their end-of-life care and, quite frankly, doctors are not compensated to sit down and answer questions right now. And they should be.
A doctor’s time and advice are his stock in trade as well, and we think that should be an allowable charge for a physician to sit down with a person when the end of life is near.
“Probably”? Don’t you know? Right now, patients are already involved in the decisions concerning their health, we don’t need some yahoo in D.C. making those decisions. Doctors discuss options, help us decide the best course of action. When the end is near, WE already decide which direction to take. And in case ya weren’t aware, those doctors DO get paid for their services. Are you really this stupid, or do you just play a moron for the benefit of your masters?!
Getting back on track about “myths” being spread, can you cite any misinformation put out by the Republicans, or conservative talk radio, that deserves to be refuted?
I’m not going to address those. You know what those are. You’re an educated person. You know what every one of them are. I’m not going to address that.
These are the things you NEED to address. Obviously, you can’t, because you don’t even know! I can safely say, there are more people out here in the REAL world who have read that bill than there are up there in The Swamp!
What I’m asking is if that’s untrue, why not get the word out –
Here’s the thing. All anyone has to do is pull that bill and look at it. The people of North Mississippi are smart…You know better than some of those things and you shouldn’t be trying to publish stuff like that.
Tsk tsk! “How dare you do your job, and actually ask pertinent questions and REPORT!” Obviously, the folks of North Mississippi are a whole lot smarter than their elected rep! Since the questions are being asked, and most people already know more of what’s in that bill than ALL of Congress combined.
And there you have it! The typical Democrat response to concerns of the folks who pay their bills. To give Childers credit, he claims he is totally against taxpayer funded abortions. This is a good thing. What’s not so good….most of the so called representatives are just as clueless as he on this bill, and evidently, don’t give a flying flip what the people do, and DO NOT want!
