Gun the death panel-loving pigs down.

It’s on.

They had their warning, they didn’t listen.

Now let them drown in their own blood.

Unless, of course, you feel that living under Cuban “health” care isn’t all that bad. In which case you ought to do the world a favor and shoot yourself as well, because you’re just too fucking ignorant to live.

Oh, and if you think that’s “too radical”, here’s what you have in wait for you if you don’t bend over and embrace the PelosiCare bill that your House Traitors just passed:

Today, Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp (R-MI) released a letter from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years.

A quarter million dollars in fines and five years (a felony) in prison if you don’t buy the public “option”. That’s one heck of an “option” isn’t it? Don’t say you don’t have a choice. You can either do what the National Socialist Democrat Workers’ Party Fascists tell you to do or you can “choose” a quarter million dollars in fines and five years behind bars.

Here’s another choice, you Democrat fascist fuckholes: You can either lock yourselves up in a garage and suck carbon monoxide, or We The People will come find you and blow the back of your heads off courtesy of a 12 gauge double aught shot through your kissers.

Pick one.

Sic Semper Tyrannis.

Kill them all. Now.

UPDATE: Seriously, though. Now that the Cathartic Ranting is over, could somebody please tell us how we’re ever going to get the attention of our self-anointed Lords and Masters in DC, because obviously they don’t give two shits what their actual constituents think about their public “option” tyranny.

Myself, I’m thinking tar, feathers and rails.

One thing is for sure: If that abomination of a take-over of one sixth of our economy accompanied by a multi-trillion dollar deficit guaranteed to grow beyond even the most pessimistic estimates once gummint get to fucking it up as they’ve fucked up every single government program in the history of our nation is passed, our grandchildren’s great-grandchildren will be paying off the debt with no hope of ever actually getting done.

AND what was once the most advanced healthcare system in the world will become just another horror show along the lines of the NHS and every single OTHER government-controlled healthcare system.

I could tell you a thing or two about the wonders of living under one of those. Wait, I’ve done that numerous times. Obviously eye-witness accounts don’t count for much anymore.

Thatisall.

As most of you know, I was recently treated to almost 9 days of hospitalization. The details beyond that it was a fairly serious condition, yet far from critical, are immaterial. I had a first-hand look at medicine as practiced by a major hospital in a large metropolitan area. The hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, a large extremely well-paid staff and an excellent staff/patient ratio. In spite of this all, the number of small but potentially serious errors that were made was astounding. Fortunately, I’m a proactive patient, taking nothing for granted and constantly inquiring as to what I was being given, why and monitoring my own progress through lots of questioning. Mind you, I haven’t been an in-patient since my teen-age years and the complexity of care has increased by quantum leaps in technology and knowledge advancements. Regardless, serious errors arise in any complex technology as the potential failure-mode rate increases. Reflecting on these facts, I can only extrapolate how much WORSE a system, not only governed by itself and voluntary high industry standards would be degraded by the addition of multiple layers of bureaucracy that would exist should government become involved. As an example, Teh One™ is all for the Health Care Information Technology Act. In my own experience something inherently simple as the transfer of case information from the Emergency Center to the in-patient floor was a complete disaster. Remember this is from one part of the same institution to another all of which are “tied” together by a single IT network. What if under the End-All, Be-All of Universal Health Care, the gubmint decided to transfer me to an entirely different facility? Total chaos, incorrect or missing information or none at all. Worse yet, information on the wrong patient (assume I was comatose). It doesn’t take rocket science to envision me being discharged to the morgue instead of home now does it?

This was just ONE of many errors made. I questioned some management types about the root cause of these problems and the answer was that their technology was outpacing the ability of the staff to maintain training on the nearly continuous improvements. Do you think some bean-counter inserted into the process would add or detract to the problem? After all, the hospital doesn’t get paid to train staff and the only direct affect is that of patient care quality or quantity. What if the Bean-Counter decided that since I’m of middle-age a particularly expense medication wasn’t cost-effective and the substitute didn’t work. Oh well, JB is over 50 and he had a good life. Think it can’t happen? Take a look at some of the comments we’ve heard from the government health industry types. Oh, he consumed way too much trans-fatty acids…off to the Death Watch Ward with him or her.

Was I a victim of malpractice? I think the answer is a resounding NO, but the facts stand prima-facie, it could have been worse and an extra layer of that bureaucratic nemesis might have made a huge difference in my (Thank You L-rd) nearly complete recovery or pushing up daisies.

Something for all the yammerheads out there to consider. Once again FUCK YOU very much 52%’rs. If this woulda happened post-coital gubmint health takeover I might not be here to pen this screed.

You get what you pay for, or not…….

Carry On…..

[By the way: Our humble thanks for the well wishes and prayers from the pack-JB&CountryRed]
