CheneyCare or Soylent Green

We're the greatest country in the world, really? Culture of life, really? Pro-life, really?

Only if it doesn't get in the way of profit. We may be losing 100k U.S. citizens a year to preventable health care issues, but thank GOD the insurance and pill pushing industries are making healthy profits.

Hate the person, love the zygote.

France best, U.S. worst in preventable death ranking:

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - France, Japan and Australia rated best and the United States worst in new rankings focusing on preventable deaths due to treatable conditions in 19 leading industrialized nations, researchers said on Tuesday.

If the U.S. health care system performed as well as those of those top three countries, there would be 101,000 fewer deaths in the United States per year, according to researchers writing in the journal Health Affairs."

Our politicians need not worry about passing from a preventable health care issue. They sleep well at night knowing they are covered by 'socialized' health care. Damn communist too afraid to die like a real American.

New Health Care Ad: ‘Every American Deserves CheneyCare’:

"Last month, the California Nurses Association and the National Nurses Organizing Committee ran ads in Iowa newspapers advocating for a single-payer health-care bill, highlighting the fact Vice President Dick Cheney has benefited from his government-provided coverage. “If he were anyone else, he’d probably be dead by now” due to his long history of health problems, claimed the ad.

In the group’s newest round of ads, which ran “in eight New Hampshire papers” on Friday and will go “national” today, they dub a new name for “guaranteed, publicly-funded health care for all Americans”: CheneyCare."

Why, this could NEVER happen again, now could it?

Report reveals Vietnam War hoaxes, faked attacks:

"But he said that probably the 'most historically significant feature' of the declassified report was the retelling of the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident.

That was a reported North Vietnamese attack on American destroyers that helped lead to president Lyndon Johnson's sharp escalation of American forces in Vietnam.

The author of the report 'demonstrates that not only is it not true, as (then US) secretary of defense Robert McNamara told Congress, that the evidence of an attack was 'unimpeachable,' but that to the contrary, a review of the classified signals intelligence proves that 'no attack happened that night,'' FAS said in a statement.

'What this study demonstrated is that the available intelligence shows that there was no attack. It's a dramatic reversal of the historical record,' Aftergood said."

Daddy needs a nap.

Naps May Boost Memory:

"If you want to remember the information in this article, take a nap.

New research conducted by brain researcher Avi Karni of the University of Haifa in Israel explores the possibility that naps help lock in sometimes fleeting long-term memories. A 90-minute daytime snooze might help the most, the study finds.

'We still don't know the exact mechanism of the memory process that occurs during sleep, but the results of this research suggest the possibility that it is possible to speed up memory consolidation,' Karni said. 'In the future, we may be able to do it artificially.'"

What's for dinner? Girlfriend is for dinner.

Man kills, cooks and possibly eats girlfriend, police say :

"When authorities arrived at the home, they found Shearer's mutilated body, one ear boiling in a pot of water on the stove and a fork sticking out of some human flesh sitting on a plate on the kitchen table."

Revealing that the Gulf of Tonkin attack was faked is like revealing that Lyndon Johnson was once president. It has been, I thought, common knowledge for many decades. We on the left did not believe it from day one. Never automatically believe anything the government says (Demo or Repub).I read about the boyfriend eating the girlfriend yesterday and immediately thought of your blog. Is that a commentary on your "sense of humor", or what?
