Health Reform | Obama's New Strategy, Democrats, Republicans

Pelosi was right. These moron right-wingers have turned into Nazis.

I think that you need to check your history. It was the NAZI party that took control of the government of Germany and instituted its heavy handed tactics to totally control the country and the lives of the people of Germany.

On August 20, 2009, on another blog a J. R. Dunn posted an article entitled “Palin v. ObamaCare”. In that post he made some very salient points which follow.

In theory, section 1233 has been removed, but this could be our future (death) at the hands of our so-called government. If you believe that the title of the bill is indicative of the content of the bill you would be mistaken. Continue to drink the cool-aid and events similar to those set out below will be your future as well. Yes people it can happen here and it is happening now. Do you really think that this bill, if passed, will only apply to Republicans or others with whom you disagree? It will apply to you also so get a thought and realize the utter disregard this so-called government has for the people of this country including the cool-aid drinkers.

JR Dunn wrote:

“Section 1233 of the ObamaCare act, entitled "Advance Care Planning Consultation." Section 1233, which we might as well call the "Let's Wrap it Up" clause, calls for "planning sessions" for Medicare clients in which the "continuum of end-of-life services and supports available" would be explained in detail. This "continuum" includes "palliative and hospice care", but is unlikely to be limited to that. Palin accused the administration of opening the door to euthanasia, with Section 1233 amounting to a first step toward "death panels" making life-and-death decisions amounting to such action.”
“The British National Health Service, the mother of all nationalized health systems, has had what amounts to a "death panel" system since 2005. Under the terms of the Mental Capacity Act, patients unable to communicate with hospital personnel are considered to be "due to die" and are removed from all forms of life support, including food and water. In other words, given the same treatment meted out to Terry Schiavo.”

“The most notorious recent case involving this act occurred last year when Mrs. Ellen Westwood, an 88-year-old retiree, entered Birmingham's Selly Oak hospital for shoulder surgery. While recovering she caught the inevitable iatrogenic "superbug" infection, a daily occurrence in British hospitals, and one which costs up to 30,000 lives a year. Without further ado, the Selly Oak doctors declared Mrs. Westwood "due to die" and began the process of shutting her down.”

“But the Westwood family refused to cooperate. After demanding that treatment be resumed, they were threatened with law enforcement action and effectively chased from the hospital. Returning with another doctor, they obtained a second opinion and had their mother released into their care. Once home, she recovered in short order and survives to this day. “

“How many times the Westwood story has been repeated remains unclear -- it's not, after all, something that the NHS would be willing to boast about. But it appears undeniable that "due to die" is standard procedure within the NHS system. Nor is it limited to older patients. There are several cases on record in which mentally disabled individuals have been left to die under the same circumstances: a girl whose easily-treated cancer was allowed to metastasize without treatment, a man whose broken leg festered to the point of infection and death, and a middle-aged man who was starved to death over the period of a month after suffering a stroke. That last individual's disability was Down syndrome, the same suffered by young Trig Palin.”

"Such a system," to quote Governor Palin, "is downright evil." The connection between the Mental Capacity Act and Section 1233 are easily grasped. In this country today, a simple line exists. There are certain things you are not allowed to do. Once that terminus is erased, there is nothing to stop society from sliding into straightforward euthanasia, as has occurred in the UK. Forget any talk about "guidelines" or "safeguards"; they did not help Terry Schiavo, they did not help Ellen Westwood, they did not help the unnamed retarded man dying of starvation in his lonely bed. Quite simply, they are not meant to.”

So all you Code Pink, BUsh hating bastards just where is your outcry against OBAMA's wars in Iraq and Afganistan. His wars are still getting our troops killed at the same rate as they were when Bush was in charge..but you knuckelheads just sit with your chickenshit mouths shut while the EVIL ONE OBAMA keeps the wars going. Spending our tax monies and youth wrecklessly in a war he is little able or willing to end. It is time to end the OBAMA administration and their mess and gross thievery. All you will ever get from them is LIES, LIES, LIES.

Thanks Leonard for your post. This bill is not about healthcare it is about control, power, social engineering, socialized medicine, the power of life and death over people and ABORTION ON DEMAND. The entire left-wing of the Democratic party are going crazy right now because they realize the American people are waking up. Sarah Palin alerted people because she saw what they wanted to do to people like her son Trig, who the leftist radicals believe should of never been born (right now in this country close to 90% of Down Syndrome babies are aborted). They lied and said that the "death panels" were not in the healthcare bill when Sarah alerted the American people that it was, Demoncrat Senator Waxman had Section 1233 of H.R. 3200 taken out of the bill. How can you take something out of a bill that never was in it in the first place?

If you want a perfect example of Nazis look to the city of Aurora and their city council..THey are now wanting to expand the police state so that the cops can seize your cars for even more minor offenses...originally was to be used for dope seizure cases...dosen't this make the cops Judge, Jury, Prosecutor and oh yes thiefs by stealing your property? If they do sieze your property, the cops, why should it than be required that you go to court? After all the cops have already convicted and fined you,,Isn't this double jeporody? AURORA BROWN SHIRTS ARE ON THEIR WAY.

How is this for health reform. We now have information that all of the fish caught in the USA are contaminated with mercury. 25% at toxic levels. Switch to OBAMA and his tax and cap program to "reduce" global warming and encouraging all of us to use the new curley que floresant light bulbs that ALL HAVE mercury in them. While I happened to be at BEST BUY I picked some of them up and the package said they were of all things made in OBAMA WANTS to support CHINA poisoning the US environment. If OBAMA really wanted to "save the planet" along with ALGORE he would ban all bulbs with mercury...however I serously doubt the IDIOT even cares. If you really want to help the environment you will contact any store that sells these polluting bulbs and request that the management stop selling them. We are now spending billions to correct the mistakes of past polluters all the while having OBAMA and CO. add to the problem today.

Boycott any stores selling the bulbs mentioned above, and let the managers know you are doing it. Home Depot, WallMart, Jewel, ACE,MENARDS, PRISCO'S, BEST BUY, AND WALGREENS are some of the local stores handling these TERRIBLE environmentaly hazardous bulbs all with OBAMAS approval. Enjoy your fish.

So all you hopey changey voters I know I have been inspiring you to keep looking for one of the Anointed Ones promised..but now it looks as though its time to let you know the facts..OBAMA LOVES the UNEMPLOYMENT AT 10% AND he intends to keep it that way for the near see it keeps inflation down and he will not have to deal with it along with all the broken promises. SO I suggest you just be happy with your unemployment check until it gives out and maybe by then there will be 8 or 10 jobs to try for.

11:44am your post is so appropriate. The "change you can believe in" has come to Aurora with the police state ready to boot your car, impound it and tow it away, where you might get it back for a few hundred dollars, that will bolster the Aurora City Council's coffers and their egos. They are now going to control every aspect of Aurora citizens lives with red-light cameras, booting your cars, restaint of trade of a legitimate hotel business from opening up by a developer who was going to put up his own money, following all the proper legal and zoning channels, beginning to start licensing every single business that comes into town and letting every potential business know they are going to run you out of town if you are not in their clique. Oh by the way, don't worry about following any ordinances or laws if you are coming into Aurora to slaughter innocent unborn babies, you are welcome here, they consider this city is the perfect place for dumping human medical waste. What a statement by the City of Aurora and it's administration of what they think of their constituents.

That would be great if the city did start running all the low class business out of town. The only places that would be left are Las Reyes, the Roundhouse, Bollydoyles and the coffee shop. Hell, it would be an improvement if Aurora were a vacant field.
You can tell that most of these posts are from uneducated people that make less than 60 grand a year.
Most people believe that the Aurora populous is just a bunch of low class losers with no education and no ambition to improve anything. This belief is correct! For proof just walk downtown and see all the trash places and the human losers.

Now many are complain that they are going to make hotels require credit cards for room reservations. Hey Aurora dumb Asses, all reputable hotels already have that requirement. The only places that don’t are drug houses like the one you already have in downtown called the Galena Hotel or Hansen motel for your sleeping pleasure.

It is beyond belief that people get in a stupid uproar any time the city tries to clean up. But then again, it is probably the losers that are creating the uproar.

God I feel sorry for the people that purchased condos at River Street Plaza and Downer Place Lofts. They are surrounded by a cesspool.

Please, get an abortion if you live in Aurora and are pregnant. It is not fair to the child to have to live in a cesspool town just because the pregnant whore of a gangbanger cant use protection.

Yeah, I laughed out loud at the uproar over the credit card requirement at hotels. I can't remember the last time I stayed anywhere that didn't require that. Too many Auroran's run around with a "don't try to improve my town–I LIKE living in a nasty hole" attitude. It's truly bizarre.

With respect to the issue of towing automobiles. Consider this.

You do not have legal title to "your" car.

Repeat, you do not have legal title to "your" car.

Check it out do your own research.

Yes you purchased it, you are paying for it, but you do not have legal title to "your" car.

“Thousands of women are having to give birth outside maternity wards because of a lack of midwives and hospital beds.

The lives of mothers and babies are being put at risk as births in locations ranging from lifts to toilets -- even a caravan -- went up 15 per cent last year to almost 4,000.

Health chiefs admit a lack of maternity beds is partly to blame for the crisis, with hundreds of women in labour being turned away from hospitals because they are full.

Babies were born in offices, lifts, toilets and a caravan, according to the Freedom of Information data for 2007 and 2008 from 117 out of 147 trusts which provide maternity services.

Tory health spokesman Andrew Lansley, who obtained the figures, said Labour had cut maternity beds by 2,340, or 22 per cent, since 1997. At the same time birth rates have been rising sharply - up 20 per cent in some areas.”


“After weeks of excruciating pain, Mark Wattson was understandably relieved to have his appendix taken out.

Doctors told him the operation was a success and he was sent home.

But only a month later the 35-year-old collapsed in agony and had to be taken back to Great Western Hospital in Swindon by ambulance.

To his shock, surgeons from the same team told him that not only was his appendix still inside him, but it had ruptured - a potentially fatal complication.

In a second operation it was finally removed, leaving Mr Wattson fearing another organ might have been taken out during the first procedure.

The blunder has left Mr Wattson jobless, as bosses at the shop where he worked did not believe his story and sacked him.

Mr Wattson told of the moment he realised there had been a serious mistake.

'I was lying on a stretcher in terrible pain and a doctor came up to me and said that my appendix had burst,' he said.”


“In the last six years, the Patients Association claims hundreds of thousands have suffered from poor standards of nursing, often with 'neglectful, demeaning, painful and sometimes downright cruel' treatment.

The charity has disclosed a horrifying catalogue of elderly people left in pain, in soiled bed clothes, denied adequate food and drink, and suffering from repeatedly cancelled operations, missed diagnoses and dismissive staff.

The Patients Association said the dossier proves that while the scale of the scandal at Mid-Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust - where up to 1,200 people died through failings in urgent care - was a one off, there are repeated examples they have uncovered of the same appalling standards throughout the NHS.”
