The insane verbiage coming from ALL who are viewed on FAUX news, are inciting, in my opinion, a civil war. Another "Man Coulter moment" can be viewed here:
Statistics now show that militia groups are on an incredible rise, gun sales have sky rocketed - all due to the venom spewed by the right. We have black congressmen receiving e-mails addressed to "nigga" so and so, swastikas being painted in obvious places. I feel that the "scare is on."
If I had super powers, I would choose one that would MAKE people sit down and listen to logic and reasoning, rather than "talking points" which have been created and meanings taken entirely out of context.
A major mistake I believe that has been made in this House Bill 3200 - is EVEN referring to consultations about end of life care. Why is it there? Most people realize that when a loved one has suffered a massive stroke, incurable disease, the moment will come when a choice of life support may have to be made. All physicians have had to meet with families and discuss options. Nothing is going to change. The clause was inserted into this bill in regards to guaranteeing payment to physicians. In the past doctor's have just billed such a consultation as that - a consultation fee. Someone, please find me one physician that entered the phrase on the invoice as "end of life consultation." Not hardly.
The scary part is that the right preys on the ignorant, it would appear. Those who listen to their neighbors or the uninformed and pass on the rumor as fact. I managed to avoid a confrontation at thegrandsons's swim party last night. I was chatting with an intelligent rethug...and he was trying to goad me into an argument, and I refused. I knew it would get heated and one of us might end up being booted out the door - plus it was neither the time nor the place. I like this person, but we have inherently been on opposite sides of the political spectrum for eons.
Now that we have seen the one man who attended Obama's town hall forum, wearing a gun...I fear that more guns will be apparent at these events, and some idiot will end up firing that weapon. I fear for our President's life and well-being, going before some of these whackjobs.
I wish I had a solution to these problems, but as for the violent tendencies coming forth...it is not all about health care - it is about having a black POTUS, plain and simple. Some people will NEVER get over that hurdle. They will never accept the fact that our Commander in Chief is black and he is our leader. Irregardless of the fact that he is more intelligent than those bigots/racists - there is still that mentality that he is not good enough. I beg to differ.
Our president has handled the mess (putting it nicely) which he inherited in a coordinated and methodical manner. Considering decisions had to be made immediately upon his taking the oath of office - I doubt anyone else could have handled it as well. Will all the decisions made be great ones...I doubt it. But this is a work in progress, and we have to give it a chance.
