Next Week on 'Death Panels'......

What Duncan says:


"Deep Thought

Nobody could've predicted that electing a black man president would drive this country completely fucking insane."

This is hilarious and point on. Must read.

Commie Countries 101.

FiveThirtyEight: Politics Done Right: Not All Socialist Countries are Alike:

"The really weird thing about Canada is, even though the government is paying the bill, they aren't actually providing the health care itself. Instead, they have private doctors for that, just like we do here.

I know this might be confusing for some of you, so let's try an analogy. This is a VISA card:"

Yup. Damn Limey Commies killing their genius cripples. Just like our death panels will do.

Man, I sure would like the head job on that 'death panel'. I could do some real good for the world.

Stephen Hawking: "I wouldn't be here today if it were not for the NHS.":

"When Investor's Business Daily attempted to scare readers away from 'socialized medicine' by claiming Stephen Hawking wouldn't be alive today if he relied on the British health care system, they neglected a couple of things. 1) Hawking does rely on the British National Health Service. 2) Hawking can speak for himself.

'I wouldn't be here today if it were not for the NHS,' he told us. 'I have received a large amount of high-quality treatment without which I would not have survived.'"

Well, then, VPILF seems to have been creating her own 'death panels' in that job she just upped and quit on .

Troubled Alaska health programs face federal restriction: Health |

"State programs intended to help disabled and elderly Alaskans with daily life -- taking a bath, eating dinner, getting to the bathroom -- are so poorly managed, the state cannot assure the health and well-being of the people they are supposed to serve, a new federal review found.

The situation is so bad the federal government has forbidden the state to sign up new people until the state makes necessary improvements.

No other state in the nation is under such a moratorium, according to a spokeswoman for the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services."

For it before he was against it.

Matt Taibbi - Taibblog – Newt Gingrich Changes What’s Left of his Mind on End-of-life Care - True/Slant:

"He’s pretty unequivocal here. Well, what happens when suddenly the Republican party decides it wants to scare the shit out of a bunch of old people by telling them the new health care bill is going to include a provision in which “death panels” ask them “when they want to die”? Now all of the sudden Gingrich is violently against the same programs he was so windily praising earlier this year."

4 B4 against.

Daily Kos: Dubya's 1999 Texas "death panel"



NASA Spacecraft Reveals Mysterious Object Punching Through One Of Saturn's Rings:

"What is going on with Saturn's rings? It appears that recent images from NASA's Cassini spacecraft reveal what seems to be a small object that has ripped through one of the planet's otherwise flat rings. The purpose of the NASA mission, the BBC explains, was to observe 'an equinox on Saturn, in a bid to learn more about the gas giant's ring system.'

Discover Magazine's take on it:"
