What could POSSIBLY go WRONG?

A reader sent these words of wisdom from Maxine.

Let me get this straight....

We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a President who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we'll be taxed for four years before ANY benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!

What the hell else could possibly go wrong?


  1. Your new heathcare is simple and easy to understand. It goes like this. What is your age sir/madam? I see...O.K. then the line starts outside 2 blocks down. When you get through that we will give you a date to stand in line again several months from now. The third time is a charm. They send you home with a prescpiption for pain pills and a new date to come wait in line.

  2. it that wasn't so true, it'd be hilarious!!

  3. One more Maxine:
    Back in 1990, The government seized the Mustang Ranch (a brothel) in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law tried to run it.
    They failed and it closed.
    Now we are trusting the economy of our country and our banking system to the same nit-wits who couldn't make money running a whore house and selling whiskey.

  4. Well what went wrong for our nadless leader is that the Supreme court shot this piece of garbage legislation down today in Florida! Oh I am sorry my political incorrectness was showing when I used the term shot!

  5. Could I copy and post this on my facebook page? :)

  6. Of course, and while a link back would be appreciated, please don't give me the credit for writing it. A reader sent it in, and doubtless it's just one of those brilliant pieces making the internet rounds.

  7. Hopefully with the recent decision in Fla we won't have to worry about this anymore. Of course, it still has to go to the Supreme Court for final rendition, but it certainly looks like Obama Care is going the way of the dodo. Once this is out of the way completely, maybe our congress-critters can sit down and work on something that 1) actually works for the people, 2) is constitutional, 3) won’t drive us deeper into debt.

  8. Of course I will link it back, people need to read your site, it is wonderful and I look forward to it everyday.

  9. I would suspect that the Mustang Ranch did not pay their bribe money on time. Even Bill Gates found out that you had better pay up on time. Once you get a high profile(and income) you had best tow that Gov. line.

  10. Anybody who really believes the leftwing will drop the idea of government-run health care is either dreaming or blind. Sorry, but the truth hurts.

    The leftwing lunatics that are running the country right now are not going to go away and keep quiet. They push and push until they get what they want. Even if Obamacare is decreed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, that doesn't mean a similar version won't pop up later. All it will take is one more Marxist in the Supreme Court and we've got government controlled health care whether we want it or not.

    Don't become complacent. That is what got us into the fix we're in now. Remain vigilant and read between the lines.

  11. It's bewildering to me that a supposedly first-world country would NOT have universal healthcare. I would judge the greatness of a nation by the safety net which it creates for its most vulnerable citizens. How is this even a debate? America both confuses and frightens me sometimes.

  12. Sometimes freedom is a bit more messy and cumbersome but far better to be free than not. its freedom after all that makes a country first- world.

  13. Carly,
    Best you should stay in Canada, dear. The U.S. doesn't need any more bewildered, confused and frightened people whose vision of greatness in a country closely approximates a quality kindergarten program.

    The U.S. has a long tradition of safety nets for the truly vulnerable, provided by its citizens rather than the government - they are called families, charities, fraternal organizations, insurance plans, and the like. Those institutions are far better suited to identify the truly vulnerable and provide them the help they truly need, ideally, if possible, to make them self-sufficient.
