Universal Single Payer Socialized Healthcare

thanks L B



  1. Thanks, Shannyn, for sharing!

  2. Fantastic. I’m going to send this link to everyone I know.

  3. Thank you, LB and Shannyn:
    This old woman has lived all her 69 years under one Single Payer system or another. First in Germany, then in England and later in the US as the wife/widow of a member in the USAF, and now under Medicare/with the government-funded militaryTricare as the supplemental insurance.
    While all systems have their problems,
    none operate as “Medicine For Profit”.
    The above cartoon should be run on every news station in the nation, for it makes the case in a way that even a third graders can comprehend.
    Yet I know the flaw in my reasoning:
    The mentality of the “Don’t confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up” crowd.
    How disturbing!
    I have sent letters to my representatives
    expressing my thoughts, but it will not do any good, other than make me feel I did all I could.
    I like the spelling of the title “Inglorious Basterds”.
    May I add “insincere, self-serving”?
    Thank you!

  4. First comment, and into moderation I go.
    I am new at this, though I have been a long time admirer of your writings, as well as those of AKM, Gryphen, Diva and Ann (She of the Strong Heart!). I admire your intelligence and determination.
    My last couple of facetious sentences were probably what tripped the wire?
    Just cut what you must. I do not yet know the protocol. My apologies.
    Please let me know where I went wrong.

  5. I don’t think it could be expressed in simpler terms.

  6. You’re welcome Shannyn…

    The fact that even THIS is too intellectually challenging for the fanatics who await their next instruction set from Dick Armey at the FreedomWorks web site…is truly disturbing!

    I think we need to implement a new rule…you forfeit your right to vote if you cannot successfully AND correctly use socialist, fascist, communism, Marxism and patriot in separate sentences!

    In fact I feel a blog coming on for over at!


  7. Shall we make a list of all the “isms” and challenge them to define each?
    Shall we add anti-intellectualism? Please?
    How about jingoism?
    Oh, don’t get me going!
    Let’s see wat evolves…

  8. Sorry, that should read “what” evolves…
    (wat would be low german, or a temple in Cambodia)…
