Today the walking man, posted an eloquent and stirring piece regards the proposed health care plan before congress, in favor of the single payer version.
His post will stir your emotions if you are a proponent. If you are agin it...suck an egg....and get sick...and go to the hospital...and pay exorbitant amounts of money to get the egg stink poison out of your system...and drop dead to boot...with no coffin money...or food for your children...because you had a pre-condition which pre-cluded any post-payment despite the fact that you pay 37,000 dollars a year for minimum health coverage...if...if...if, you go to their doctor...and, your widow will have to become a ho...working out of your 12 year old sedan...because the bank foreclosed on your house, due to the fact that your widow had to use the mortgage money to buy food...do fucking dah.

The issue is running into stiff opposition, not just from the Republican side, but from a few Democrats as well. And in this past week it has taken a violent turn, at some of the "town hall" meetings across the country. The new tactics, remind me of the Nixon years...and the Nixon "dirty tricks" goons who went out to Democratic rallies and purposely disrupted them. And the tactics also put me in mind of the Brown Shirts of the German National Socialist Party of the early thirties.

Here's to you boys and girls who drink the kool aid of insurance execs everywhere:
