Under Obama healthcare, we will kill them off. Here’s Peter Singer, professor of bioethics at Princeton University, in a New York Times Magazine article, Why We Must Ration Health Care, already deciding who to kill off once national healthcare hits.

“Governments implicitly place a dollar value on a human life when they decide how much is to be spent on health care programs and how much on other public goods that are not directed toward saving lives. The task of health care bureaucrats is then to get the best value for the resources they have been allocated. It is the familiar comparative exercise of getting the most bang for your buck. Sometimes that can be relatively easy to decide. If two drugs offer the same benefits and have similar risks of side effects, but one is much more expensive than the other, only the cheaper one should be provided by the public health care program. That the benefits and the risks of side effects are similar is a scientific matter for experts to decide after calling for submissions and examining them. That is the bread-and-butter work of units like NICE. But the benefits may vary in ways that defy straightforward comparison. We need a common unit for measuring the goods achieved by health care. Since we are talking about comparing different goods, the choice of unit is not merely a scientific or economic question but an ethical one.”

“As a first take, we might say that the good achieved by health care is the number of lives saved. But that is too crude. The death of a teenager is a greater tragedy than the death of an 85-year-old, and this should be reflected in our priorities. We can accommodate that difference by calculating the number of life-years saved, rather than simply the number of lives saved. If a teenager can be expected to live another 70 years, saving her life counts as a gain of 70 life-years, whereas if a person of 85 can be expected to live another 5 years,then saving the 85-year-old will count as a gain of only 5 life-years. That suggests that saving one teenager is equivalent to saving 14 85-year-olds.”

    How ironic that this Obama Healthcare Plan is needed before baby-boomers retire.You may receive better treatment and compassion simply by dying in your own bed at home.Talk about sticking it to the elderly ! This president has no shame.

    I think this is an out rage to the American people. We as a nation should take a stand for our lives and those around us, No one should have the right say who lives or dies. Obama should be impeached.

    Why do you people choose to be so wilfully ignorant?
    Why do you believe the corporate lobbyists who are spending almost $1.5 million/day to manipulate you?
    57% of all US companies pay no Federal taxes whatsoever.
    The Republicans & the D.I.N.O. Republi”canines” care more about the health of the ruthless healthcare insurance corporations that bribe them w/ big money, than they care about your health.

    You’re being played bigtime to vote against your own best interests because you believe the Republican talking points on FOX News Channel as if they were gospel.

    There is a huge chasm between your rhetoric & reality.
    You’re entitled to your own ignorant opinions, but not your own set of facts.

    Please peddle your BS Lies elsewhere. Obama is destroying the country.

    BTW ask him to show you his Birth Certificate… not the phony one; the one that says he was born in Kenya.

    According to our Constitution, he is unqualified to be our President.

    Still Birthers persist, but why? It’s so damn lame.
    Being insincere is the most exhausting thing in life.
    No wonder your bunch can’t be more spontaneous.
    But that’s probably the reason that the GOP has to give you talking points.
    With all of the grasping @ straws, fear mongering, jumping to conclusions, running-off @ the mouth, casting aspersions, propagating propaganda, foaming @ the mouth, throwing hissy-fits & eviscerating Obama, it’s no wonder that your circadian rhythms are plumb out of whack.

    I guess it isn’t any wonder that it’s always the same tired old crap w/ you guys.

    58% of Republicans fall into the Birther category.
    I know there is nothing that I can say or do to change your screw-ball ideas.
    You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.

    You seem to have a marginal grasp of logic, so why don’t you produce his real birth certificate & not the fake document being bandied about by the Mad Russian Dentist, Real Estate Broker, Windshield Dr., Presstitute & Expert Document Forger .

    There are other Channels on TV besides FOX NEWS CHANNEL, for your infotainment pleasure. But not all of them will confirm your own biases like Faux does.
    Just punch the Channel ^ button on your TeeVee remote . . . .
    I know that you are creatures of habit, but it gets easier.
    The GOP has an 85% disapproval rate w/ the American public.
    But 4% approve of the GOP.
    Left to your own devices, I’m sure that you can get it up to a 90% disapproval rating, if you just keep shooting yourself in the foot.

    As you know, Hawaii doesn’t issue the long form birth certificate, but the Governor recently re-verified that the legal document is secured in a vault in the Aloha State.

    But your request is idiomatic of the knuckle-dragging, neoSouthern strateegery of the old Dixiecrat G.O.P. tribalism.
    Your moronic imputation that he is “not one of us”
    is only thinly veiled us-against-them casuistry.

    The confederated corporatist scumbags of the healthcare industry are some really pissed-off little Bu$hCorp sychophants, because they’re afraid that their days of riding the BIG MONEY gravytrain are quickly coming to a screeching halt, when Obama reforms our healthcare system.

    But why are you carrying their water for them?
    Why do you vote against your own best interests?
    You must believe that your short term gain trumps the long term benefit of for your fellow citizens.

    The pusillanimous GOP chickenhawks have become so impuissant after becoming far too insular of their own accord, because they still believe that perception trumps reality.
    The GOP is a regional party now, of the Old South.
    So save your Dixiecups, because the South will rise again!

    The bogus Kenyan birth certificate is dated 1961, but that was 3 years before Kenya’s birth as a republic.

    When such stellar conservatives as Bill O’Really &
    KKKarl Rove disavow the Birther movement, & even mAnn Coulter refers to them as conservative ranks, it’s time for the unhinged Birthers to give it a rest.
    Unbridled anger is no substitute for intelligent discussion.

    But the Republicans are experiencing paranoid delusions & sheer desperation after losing 2 consecutive elections & every major policy fight on Capitol Hill.
    They are feeling impotent, big-time, but w/ the deep pockets of their corporate cronys, they are using astro turf methods to organize angry mobs to eviscerate Obama & to disrupt thoughtful discussions about the future of healthcare in the USA.
    By hanging members of Congress in effigy & using Nazi symbology & sloganeering, they demonstrate just how far outside the mainstream that the GOP & their allies have strayed.
    This type of anger & discord didn’t serve the Republican’t party in -08, & it will blowup in their faces again.
    The GOP would like to depict these angry mobs as representative of an angry nation that rejects Obama’s willingness to reform healthcare.

    But according to the latest findings by Pew Research, 79:15 Americans want insurance companies to sell coverage to all people, even if they have pre-existing conditions.
    65:29 support mandatory
    requirement stipulating that all people have insurance, w/ the government helping out those who can’t afford to buy their own.
    63:32 support raising taxes on families w/ incomes above $350,000& individuals earning more than$280,000.
    61:33 support employers paying into a govt. healthcare fund if they don’t provide insurance to employees.
    52:37 support govt. plan that competes w/ private healthcare insurance plans.

    What would you call someone who is willing to sell out his own country & it’s most cherished values?
    The Wobbly Creed . . .
    Then up with the masses and down with the classes,
    Death to the traitor who money can buy.
    Cooperation’s the hope of the nation,
    Strike for it now or your liberties die.

    My advice to the astro-turf rebel rousers is to stay away from my Town Hall unless you can be civil, or tolerate getting a can of whoop-ass opened up on ya’.
    The disruption of the Town Hall meetings is doing more than stifling debate. It’s dealing a staccato of punishing blows to the body politic & it’s capacity to even function as a democracy.

    And shame on you Christians who proclaim & profess Jesus Christ yet deny his ways.
    Jesus would support single payer universal healthcare on moral grounds.

    The elected Christianists who openly claim to be above the law are working to take over the government w/ a warped faux Christanity in place of Democracy.

    These Birther thugs & their ilk are akin to Nazi Stormtroopers in prewar Germany & Austria.
    They would disrupt government meetings by intimidation tactics against legislators.

    But Limbaugh is accusing the Democratic party of using Hitlarian tactics.
    That’s absurd. He is projecting again, so he’s probably abusing Oxyneocontin.

    But then Hitler was a speed freak.

    Another cut and paste screed-

    I am allowing it for now because you are the model for the bullys that persisted their thuggery at Primary voters during the run-up to the election.

    Never again- and Never Forget, Indys!
    This is not our view of AmericA.

    Sally is one of Obama’s hired guns. She thinks we are still in campaign mode.
