Open letter to the Town Hall Health Care Terrorists

August 31, 2009

Polite discussion time is over. You are either working towards a single payer system or you are a terrorist. This is Political Action Entertainment- Your Co-Pay for today’s visit is 25 dollazzzzz. For Really. Drop a Co Pay once a month here- http://operationitch.wordpress.com/about/donate

EXPANDED TEXT:
The health care debate sure has Americans talking. Seems like each administration has its own mason Dixon line diving the Regressives from the Progressives- and health care reform is that issue.

Former Presidential hopeful, proud denier of the theory of evolution, and radio blowhard Mike Huckabee joined the fray recently when he said recently honored the death of Ted Kennedy by saying

“that, under President Obama’s health care plan, Kennedy would have been told to “go home to take pain pills and die” during his last year of life.
“[I]t was President Obama himself who suggested that seniors who don’t have as long to live might want to consider just taking a pain pill instead of getting an expensive operation to cure them,” said Huckabee. “Yet when Sen. Kennedy was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer at 77, did he give up on life and go home to take pain pills and die? Of course not. He freely did what most of us would do. He choose an expensive operation and painful follow up treatments. He saw his work as vitally important and so he fought for every minute he could stay on this earth doing it. “

But let us not even argue any of Mike Huckabee points. I will grant you all of them- let us shift the hypothetical argument by accepting the fairy tale world that Huckabee dwells in.
Then let me ask you this: What country would you rather live in?

COUNTRY A
The country where most of us would choose what Senator Kennedy did- an expensive operation to prolong life another year- while 1 in 6 American have NO INSURANCE- And without insurance, could they very well Mike FUCKABEE, choose like Kennedy to live out their final days in a similar manner? In country A some people much younger than Teddy die quietly because they have no insurance.

Or COUNTRY B
Or would you rather live in a country where everyone is covered- even if it meant that we would have to spend wiser, die more gracefully- and yes- I’ll say it again, more cost effectively- even if that meant that when one – when diagnosed with a terminal illness- at the advanced age of 70 something would have to make a cost efficient choice so that all of the 50 million without health care would have it, could have it?

I don’t want to brush over this lightly- I know this is hard to swallow. But people are dying for this. Something on the average of 20 thousand people a year. Dead because they had no health insurance.

That is more than 6x the number of people who died in 9/11.
So listen, if you knew that some foreign country would kill 20 000 American Citizens next year, you would most certainly tell me to support the troops and turn a blind eye to the billions spend by our department of defense- to avoid such a catastrophe.
And yet we see the culprit right here- our own greed- our own aversion to anything that resembles socialism- you – all of you mindless Mike Huckabee’s, you Sarah Palin soccer moms, Glenn Beck and your 9/12 minions- your reactionary zeal, your mindless lockstep zeal against healthcare reform is killing us.

You might as well bow towards Mecca, hop on a plane, hijack it and fly into the Sears tower.

6 times.

Because that is what you are doing to you own citizens you homegrown terrorist freak shows- you are killing us.

So clearly- there can be no more polite debate. Anyone opposing single payer is a terrorist.

A murderer.

Your co pay for this video is 25 dollars. Pay the fuck up.

  1. Hey Fleetwood, have you seen this:

    http://kucinich.us/index.php

    Check this part that most people seem to be ignoring:

    The bill (HR3200) will pass, not with a “public option” but with a private mandate requiring 30 million uninsured to buy private health insurance (if one doesn’t already have it). If you are broke, you may get a subsidy. If you are not broke, you will get a fine if you do not purchase insurance.

    I am so glad I listened to your videos waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back and you brought the world’s attention to Dennis Kucinich. I’ve been watching him ever since, and he’s a man of his word, who is there to truly serve the American people.

    This HR3200 must be stopped.


  2. you’ll have to excuse me commenting on this subject since I am only 19 years old and thus have a very limited capacity for such things but from what I understand The UK has health care for all of its citizens but for those who A don’t want to wait in line or B would rather pay for healthcare by co-pay they are more than welcome to do so. meaning they get taxed like everybody else for healthcare for all citizens but if they would like to have what I would deem pretty uneccessary procedures they may do so at their own cost. Something that obviously somebody like Ted Kennedy would have easily afforded. I feel like people gloss over this whenever healthcare is talked about. obviously you are paying the piper twice so to speak but if you want to be treated special you should have to pay for it. unfortunantly I haven’t done near the amount of research that I’m sure most of the other people who will be commenting have so I have no idea if the quality of healthcare goes up or down when it becomes available for all. I have also salivated at the thought of some kind of national reform that would cause all the fat mother fuckers who want to eat their 3 cheeseburgers and instead of exercising afterwards but just want to go to the DR and get some pills to lower their cholesterol, to be forced into it. I’m tired of these 2x a week specials on the news about American Obesity. I have no idea if that would change with healthcare for all but if it does sign me up.


  3. hi Dennis,
    i was here.
    nice response you’re getting.

    you know, as much as i dispise concept of federal governments, on the issue of healthcare, it is absolutely necessary.

    most people don’t have a clue how far the AMA and pharm cos are part of the MIC. its beyond an epidemic! thanks for helping a few find a beacon of light.
