Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Your Healthcare: Jeopardized

I must admit this up front: I am not a pauper.

I am not a bum or a sociopath or an excusionist or a tattoo'd POS or a deviant or an Alt-Lifer. I am an individual who has paid years and years into his own medical plan -- for 30+ years. I have always been gainfully employed because I made sure that I was. I received no handouts.

Up to now, I've had some encounters with my health plan for various reasons. They've been there for me when needed. Yes, I've had to fight when necessary but not because my facts weren't there; they became validated and then supported.

All in all, I've paid and received. Through Kaiser Permanente -- one of the most stringent, oppressive, unforgiving and restrictive HMOs extant.

I'll still take Kaiser over any governmental option "offered."

And still, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi still refuses to answer the Most Base of questions:

These are the people you would trust with, literally, your life in the balance?

Despite this, Lou Dobbs quit the Communist News Network (CNN). Did he perceive troubles in its immediate future? Is he prescient? CNN has already dropped to last place amongst the various cable news shows -- despite its having invented the cable news show at least 20 years ago.


Republicans Edge Ahead of Democrats in 2010 Vote
Registered voters prefer Republicans for the House, 48% to 44%

Bad news for VP Joe a while ago. One citizen killed.


Today, 68 years ago, 2,386 Americans died at Pearl Harbor.

What a arrogant tool Pelosi is. Her condescending attitude shines through during this exchange.

Does she think that answer (or lack thereof)is going to be acceptable to those of us who are tired of hearing the crap that spews from the politicians mouths?

Not only is the DNC suffering a drop in the polls amongst registered voters in general, but with "likely voters" in particular, as none of the youth who voted for Obama in 2008 are likely to show up to the polls to vote in 2010.

I had Kaiser years ago, they suck donkey balls. But are still better than Government health care, but really, not much.

thanks for mentioning Pearl Harbor; I'm ashamed I didn't blog on it. Good job, BZ.

As for Pelosi? That ...#(*#&$(*&#(

ANSWER THE QUESTION? NO way. Too inflammatory. But, you know she means WE'D GO TO JAIL and we DESERVE IT.

I'm linking to you...this is good and more people need to learn this stuff.
I, too, was VERY happy with my own private insurance through Mr. Z's illness. Yes, we pay, and it's not always easy, but it's OURS and the ins. company was right there for us.

Jenn, you really don't know shit and I don't know why you even pretend to. There is no government plan as of yet.

Fire Capt Schmoe: arrogant is right on. And still, she'll likely be re-elected because, after all, it IS San Francisco.

FJ: thanks for taking the time to visit and comment, and please come back. I concur; the demographics are, once again, changing.

Jenn: so far (crossed fingers) they've done okay for me.

Z: and THANKS to you, VERY MUCH, for the link on your blog!

Elmers: good point; I think I'm going to make a much larger post next year.

I will use my Uncle Edward's test of when things are bad. When relating the woes of the day he would glance out the window.

"Can't be that bad. No unburied bodies in the street."

He had lived through the Spanish Flu pandemic.

Strangely with our current health care system I don't see dead bodies in the street or see millions of untreated wandering the streets. Our current system is actually worse than that of our grandparents who contributed to charitable hospitals so the poor could get treatment, and where hospitals did not need a large staff just to process claims forms. 'Health insurance' was something the rich got as a 'perk' because it was costly and a good job enticement for CEOs and Executives. Our government decided to subsidize it so more could get it, which was offering an uneconomical system to more people. The government created the 'uninsured' by ensuring that a much larger number could become 'insured'.

Now we pay for that with high cost health care that has a great overhead burden on it because it was not economical in the first place and expanding it creates a scheme where one must get more of the healthy to off-set the sick. When the healthy do not buy this stuff they are making their own economic choices and wanting to force those unwilling to pay for health insurance to do so is robbery in the name of the common good.

As I have stated before the death of the Republic will come on the words of Ben Franklin, who warned us about the fact we must keep it a Republic. We also remember his words about losing permanent liberty to temporary security, and no one in their right mind thinks that by ensuring more who can't or won't pay for health insurance that the system will, magically, become solvent. It will be a little bit more liquid, but that will not address the long-term problems of the system itself which is headed to the same demographic black hole as social security, medicair and medicaid.

Of course the rich elites won't worry about that. Nor our betters in Congress who will exempt themselves from it, as they need something better than we get. To help the poor the middle class is turned into poor people dependant upon handouts from government.

Those who push this do not heed Ben Franklin.

The Republic is at peril.
