We Scare because we Care: An Obamascare Roundup

Obamonsters Inc.monstersinc-wave© has been flooding the zone with pure insanity about the health scare plan, much of it actually in the bills. Not only are the bills filled with billions, perhaps trillions, in giveaways to ACORN, Americorps, the SEIU, and foreign tourists, they have abortion and euthanasia mandates that would, in turn, close Catholic hospitals and deny curative care to sick old folks while paying doctors to kill them. There are lies galore about the contents of the bills from the flapping gums at the White House. The whole Cloward-Piven mess of lies is confusing because the Dems want it to be. Where is a poor conservative seeker of truth to go in this world of lies and confusion constantly being spit out from the government, newspapers, television news and all those who have long claimed the mantle of truth-telling only to betray the trust we gave them? If you go look at the census data, you will see that those earning above the average income are more likely to be uninsured than those below. People with more money are more likely to have no insurance than those with less. This is clearly not a problem with affordability, but with making a big deal out of nothing. It’s the Chicken Little syndrome.

So since Obamascare is so senseless, we need all the help we can get to make sense of it. Thus the round-up. I’ll put out my links. Readers add their links. I will keep up the updates with your updates for a while. Comment up a storm to make it better.

And I would be remiss if I did not mention my most recent thinking on the Health Care debate: Chicken Little is not a story to emulate.

  1. Did you READ the bill? I DID…the whole thing…there is no mention of euthenasia or putting hospitals out of business or foreign tourists…WHERE did you get that information???? What sections of the bill????
    Have a heart…some of us are desparate out here. We are tired of operating out of FEAR. Fear is a very UN-enlightened, un-helpful, and un-healthy level to be operating from. Are you part of a solution???

  2. Well, I have not read it as I work for a living, but if it is government mandated, it is simply going to be a cluster *(^*.

    We had a young soldier in San Antonio (who used government healthcare via his VA medical program) to have a gall bladder operation just last week.

    Today, he is minus a leg due to the wonderful care he received, and may lose the other, as the highly trained surgeon hired by the government cut into his an artery, and the blood loss to his leg was so great the tissue simply died.

    Heck, in short, I don’t need to read it. I’ve seen government health care. It is not pretty.

  3. Ruth take a look at this bullet list of things in the HR3200 bill.

    Look especially on pages 425 to 434. Remember that all laws should be read with the mentality of a paranoid, because people do not follow the intent of laws, they follow the letter of laws. If a perverse interpretation is easier for someone, that’s what they will do.

  4. “If a perverse interpretation is easier for someone, that’s what they will do.”

    Bureaucraps operate by an even more perverse reasoning: if a particular interpretation will expand a bureaucracy, increase its power over citizens, advance the career of a particular bureaucrap, etc., it doesn’t matter WHAT the law says, because bureaucracies ALWAYS seek to expand their power and influence.

    Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy applies:

    “Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy states that in any bureaucratic organization there will be two kinds of people: those who work to further the actual goals of the organization, and those who work for the organization itself. Examples in education would be teachers who work and sacrifice to teach children, vs. union representative who work to protect any teacher including the most incompetent. The Iron Law states that in all cases, the second type of person will always gain control of the organization, and will always write the rules under which the organization functions.”

    Parkinson’s Law would also seem to apply…

    The best that can be expected of any bureaucracy implemented to administer ObUmacare would be that the lowest common denominator representing Pournelle’s Iron Law would administer the thing.
