Iranians say “no” to Nokia over reports of surveillance collaboration. I think I’ll join them 🙂

The never-before-seen footage of Michael Jackson’s hair catching on fire during that 1984 Pepsi commercial shoot.

Obama moral relativist begin making fascist argument for rationing health care which is what this has been about from the beginning–eliminating “costs” from the budget. For fascists, people are the budget.

    I recently bought a Bluetooth thingiewhatchamacallit. Nokia was amongst the choices. The Nokia, I chose not.

    I like how the NYT article mentions Obama’s mother and how she worried, in her last days, if her insurance covered her treatment. It’s true that, under his single-payer plan, she would not have had to worry about that because the plan would have refused her any treatment and simply allowed her to die. That easily eliminates such concern.

    I sent a letter to Nokia about sharing the information of their users with the evil government of Iran. They sent a letter back saying that was the agreement they made to get Nokia into the country of Iran previous to the Iran Election Revolution.
    Many people I met on line from Iran were hunted down and either killed or thrown in jail by Nokia being complicent with the murdering mullahs..
    A boycott is in order in honor of the brave Iranain Freedom Fighters.

    I wonder what the new vocabulary term for rationing will be since rationing has become a “dirty word” and evokes an inappropriate response? They can change the vocabulary and obfuscate all they want but it will not change their policy for rationing national health care. When the government is involved with our health care our health becomes public. Good health will be equated to good citizenship; the government assumes the power to decide, for the greater good/cost effectiveness, when a life is too costly.

    For an excellent argument against the article “Why We Must Ration Health Care” read “A Life Worth Living. A Life Worth Saving” at JunkFood Science.

    Re: Healthcare rationing.
    The professor who wrote this article is a perfect example of the “progressive movement” of the 1920’s. You know, the one Hillary Clinton embraces. The one that advocated uthanising mental patients, and “defectives”.

    When an insurance company says (up-front) that a $250,000 bone marrow transplant is not a covered expense, they are evil killers. When a government agency says no transplant, it’s good. They’re looking out for us taxpayers. Uncle Fred just as to croak, after all he’s 85. Maybe they should start the national healthcare debacle with the prison system. “$18,000 a year for AIDS meds?, no, you’re a killer Mr. Petersen, that’s not going to fly with the taxpayers.”

    In the spirit of Frederic Bastiat, lets chose another option, where nobody plunders anybody. Have anyone that works have their health benefits paid to them as salary, or for hourly workers, a quarterly benefit payment.
    Let us all have a health maintenance account into which up to a certain amount will go in tax free. Let us use that money to buy insurance from any provider that we wish, with any type of plan that we want so we can choose the coverage that suits us and our situation. Competition will make the plans cost less. Some will chose to only have catastrophic insuranse, and high co-pays or “pay-as-you-go” for Dr. visits. Others will want a plan for young kids, or a hypocondriac plan, or whatever. The money in the account moves with you from job to job, so if you change jobs, you only have to supply the account number and who it’s with. The money is invested and the income is tax free in the account like an IRA. It would not be taxed for use in your healthcare. You could use the money to pay for oddball treatments that are not in your plan. If your 85 as in the nutball author’s example, and you need a $50,000 drug to stay alive for another year, you can decide yourself. Spend some money, or leave it to your heirs and croak a year earlier. Yes, the balance of the account should roll tax free to your heirs health accounts, or they could take it as an inheritance, pay the taxes and spend the money. Why do we always seem to gravitate to someone else holding power over our lives?

    Sorry, I submitted a bit too quickly. The welfare recipients would have a “mimimum plan” that would be equivalent to the least expensive general plan that a person could buy with his health maintenance account. The Feds would have to split the cost with the state of residence to cover the premium, and the plan would be bid out by each state, every two years. That would capture regional cost differences. The free care people could go to the hospital or urgent care, and be triaged to an on-site clinic staffed by nurses, or medical tecnicians for more minor care needs. If they get in over their heads, they can always send them back to the ER for a Doctor’s expertise. In exchange for this free coverage, there would have to be strict caps on malpractice claims, and awards to prevent the milking of the system, and in claims of gross negligense, it would be treated more as a crime requiring re-training or penalties paid to the state than a civil beef with big jury awards. Eventually under any national healthcare plan, malpractice claims and awards will be rained in. Fairness is the equal distribution of dissatisfaction.
