Michael Moore Talks Obamacare, Ignores Jowl Replacement Surgery.

Michael Moore was on Real Time with Bill Maher talking Obamcare, and while a negative multiplied by a negative is a positive in mathematics, it isn’t when it comes to bitter, angry socialists.

With that said, sometimes the unexpected happens, like neutrinos traveling faster than the speed of light…or Michael Moore admitting that socialized medicine results in longer waits for common procedures:

Moore says the only “things you maybe have to wait for” are a knee replacement surgery or cataracts.

“Things that are not life-threatening,” Moore said on HBO’s “Real Time” with host Bill Maher. “The reason why you have to wait sometimes in those countries is they let everybody in the line. We make 50 million people out of the line so the line is shorter, so sometimes you have to wait as long. If you are a patriotic American, you want every American to be covered the same as you.

It’s actually a win for conservatives that we got Michael Moore of all people to finally admit that when you give someone a good or service for “free” (i.e., shouldering a third party with costs that exist no matter how badly you wish they would go away), they will use it differently than if they were personally connected with the process.

Now that Moore has been forced to acknowledge the economic reality of socialized medicine, he’s prone to saying ridiculous things like “only” knee replacement surgery or cataracts are beholden to supply and demand. Besides the flippant nature of his defense (try telling someone with chronic knee or hip pain to wait a year for relief), anyone who follows his logic will know he’s wrong.

And since Michael Moore seems to think that he alone gets to define what “Patriotic” Americans should want for their neighbors, I hate to break it to him: he’s wrong again.

I don’t want Americans to be covered “the same” as me. I want Americans to be covered the way they want to be covered. I want them to have choice. I want a young college graduate to have a plan that works for his lifestyle and his assessment of his overall health and I want the recent retiree to have the plan that works for her lifestyle and her health needs—each of which will have different overall costs.

I eat right. I exercise. I get adequate sleep. I don’t smoke and rarely drink. I should not have to pay for a massive health care plan, a one-size-fits all package that blankets the slovenly guy who wears a moo-moo. And neither should you. But Michael Moore tends to think otherwise…for reasons that might be closer to home than a respectable blog post can go into.

Note to overweight socialists: if you’re ever wondering what the wait lines are for jowl replacement surgery, ease your troubled midsection: If Herman Cain takes it all the way to the White House the stress will melt it right off!

Why might Michael Moore be sympathetic to the one size fits all health care plan the federal government would force you and the moo moo clad Homer Simpsons of the world to take? I wonder...

Liberals count on Mind-Forged Manacles to pass Health Care Monstrosity.

Barack Obama is making final push to convince Democrats that the proven health care failures of other countries are “bound to be true” for the American people. Today, the President quotes Lincoln, which is ironic since government dependency is the new mind-forged manacles -modern day American slavery – of countless masses.

The President claims Democrats will:

“Do it for the people who are really scared right now…because of an accident or ailment they’re about to lose their house…do it for the American people; they’re the ones looking for action right now.”

Besides asking about the people who will be really scared tomorrow when it’s time to pay the piper and they’re trillions of dollars in debt, I guess the million dollar question for the kids is: What are we fighting for? What do we believe? (And why do I keep linking to music by Yellowcard this morning?) When Barack Obama rolls up his sleeves and hits campaign mode, our suspension of

The Federal Government: Convincing people to slip on their mind-forged manacles, willingly, for centuries.

disbelief is apparently supposed to be heightened so that any soaring vagueness cloaked in the claim the American people support him, is true. What strikes me as odd in this case is that this isn’t campaign season, he has a record we can evaluate, and the American people are not happy with him. The only reason to continue pushing forward is if you adhere to the What’s the Matter with Kansas? mentality: The rubes are too stupid to know that liberal policies are good for them!

Conservatives don’t think the people are “rubes.” The free-market mentality dictates that you must believe that millions of people making millions of decisions and transactions every day, in the aggregate, are making wiser choices than 535 “rubes” in Washington, detached from Main Street and surrounded by full-time staff ego-feeders, cocktail party circuits where Sean Connery clones blindly state “You’re The Man Now, Dog!, and isolation from criticism turns you into a Congressional Homer Simpson.

If Democrats are going to pass their Health Care monstrosity for people “right now,” then conservatives are blocking it for the American people of tomorrow. They’re blocking it for kids and grandkids and future generations that shouldn’t have to be burdened with soul-crushing debt and a declining standard of living. They’re blocking it simply because the myopic, me-me-me mentality of liberal Democrats and the Barack Obama “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for” delusion (more akin to narcissistically lathering each other in ego-foam spilling out their mouths) creates incentives and outcomes anathema to the intentions of the public policy.

No matter what happens in the coming days, conservatives have a responsibility to future generations to make things right. And for the kids, let this be your Wake Up Call.
