Less Health Care for More Money
by Ann Coulter
The New York Times‘ Nicholas Kristof recently wrote a column about John Brodniak of Oregon, who developed a cavernous hemangioma, causing him great pain as blood leaks into his brain.
According to Kristof, Brodniak can’t get medical help because we don’t have universal health care. Senators who vote against ObamaCare, Kristof said, are morally equivalent to someone who would walk past a man “writhing in pain on the sidewalk.”
In another article in the Times, William Yardley wrote about Melvin Tsosies — also of Oregon — who ended up with $200,000 in medical bills after having a heart attack.
Presenting……………… SANTA SPOT!
Needless to say, he was NOT a happy Santa, and many things went flying. Luckily, no ol’ broads or attitudinal felines were injured in this experiment! And no blood flowed!
Can’t say as I blame them!
“All it takes is for one person to strap on a bomb, walk into a school… and blow themselves up,” said one outraged member of the Rockford TEA Party Patriots.
The group is in an uproar about the latest step in moving Guantanamo Bay detainees to Thomson, Ill. They held an emergency meeting tonight to discuss the issue and make plans for a protest against the transfer of alleged terrorists.
“This is being completed unconstitutionally. We just don’t have a say, here the people of Illinois, as to whether or not we want these detainees here. And where’s this money coming from?” commented Jerry Sandin.
The sale of the prison is not a done deal. In order for the process to move forward federal laws will have to be changed, funding must be approved and support needs to be gained in congress.
The TEA Party plans to use a December 22nd public hearing to voice their concerns and talk about all of these issues.
Evidently, the Chicago machine has a tendency to forget that Illinois is a bit bigger than just Chicago. There are other people who live in the state that are none too happy with their actions. Of course, Obama and his crew took that same mindset with them to Washington, D.C. Rational Americans do not want these pigs to set foot on our soil! It’s not that difficult to understand, but when it comes to the left of the left, rational never enters into the picture.
“Collapsing in chaos” is a phrase the media is using to describe the Copenhagen climate conference, and that certainly is the feeling among many here at the Bella Center. Little has gone right, and indeed many registered participants were never even let in. The Danish minister in charge has resigned. Now, those of us who managed to make it in may get turned away for the crucial last two days Thursday and Friday. There are even rumors that President Obama may stay away.
An Israeli doctor said to a medical conference, “Medicine in my country is so advanced, we can take a kidney out of one person, put it into another and have him looking for work in six weeks!”
The German doctor stood up and said, “Well, medicine in my county is so advanced, we can take a lung out of one person and put it into another and have him looking for work in four weeks.
The Russian doctor got up and said “My country is even more advanced, we can remove half a heart from one person, put it into another and have them both looking for work in just two weeks.
Not to be outdone, the American doctor stood up and addressed the conference, “Well” he said “My country is so far advanced in medicine, we can take an asshole out of Chicago, put him in the White House, and have half the country looking for work in just 24 hours!”
