ObamaCare is for the Healthy

There will be a push to make my book , The BIG Black Lie, #1 on Amazon soon. I hope you will support me.

Obama made it very clear recently that the healthcare system he is proposing is for the healthy. That is the way, the only way he plans to control costs. If you are unhealthy, Obama may ask that you be "selfless," and not get on the system.

I watched as Obama backed himself into a corner of his own construction when discussing his own grandmother. He says on one hand that the government is not going to counsel old people to death or make them offers they can't refuse. He concedes however that the elderly and the terminally ill are responsible for a lot of the cost--cost is what he wants to control.

Using his grandmother Toots as an example, Obama squirmed while explaining that Toots likely should not have had her hip replaced, since she was dying of cancer and was 86 years old. Here was his comment:

I don’t know how much that hip replacement cost,” Obama said in the interview. “I would have paid out of pocket for that hip replacement just because she’s my grandmother.”

“That’s where I think you just get into some very difficult moral issues,” he said in the April 14 interview. “The chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total healthcare bill out here.

There is no hidden message here, as the message is crystal clear. Sometimes Obama is worse than Biden in revealing the truth, though he is sensitive to the idea not throwing Toots from the train. What he's not saying is he didn't want her on the train to begin with! Read more here...

What a liar and a fool. I know that BO wouldn't had paid for that hip replacement because he hated her. He said so in his two books. She was the epitome of white racism in his eyes.

This man wants socialism if not downright communism. He basically said so when he tried to silenced his critics only to show his logic towards socialism by stating they were right in the sense that what we were criticizing is already happening, so his conclusion is to completely socialize medicine. I just wonder how many picked up on the logical deduction and gaffe. Given how our education system is against critical thinking, I doubt many since the lame stream media broadcast the statements.

His statement about our veterns tells two distinct attitudes. First, and most obvious, he hates the military. They go to war that the government declares and then he wants them to suffer the consequences by throwing them under the bus. Seems to be a lot of that going with Obama. Useful idiots, in his mind, are expendable. The other is his attitude about how to control costs with health care. By not providing it to those that need it the most. Men and women who bravely fight for their country and his attitude is to control costs by throwing them under the bus and blaming THEM for not incurring the cost of the government's action, rather we agree with it or not they are obligated to go, and to question their patriotism. The man makes me sick and shows he's downright evil. I guess if the secret service takes a bullet for him, his attitude will be, you knew the risks, now deal with it while he bleeds to death in the street. I wonder what more this man has to do to get the public screaming that America has made one big arrogant mistake already (anagram intended).

The wrap is this man want's to control every aspect of our lives and some. He's a pure Marxist at its worse. If he gets control of health care and gains absolute power of the industry, it's clear. Sick people need to do what's "right" and die. Injured people need to suffer. Only those on he higher end of value scale are to receive treatment. If this isn't the trait of evil, then we have gone through the looking glass and have made good evil and evil good. Right wrong and wrong right. We have then truly entered bizzaro world and that's one citizenship I rather not have.

@Jim - I'm hanging, Man!

The Black Sphere said...

@madmath1 - He is a fool, to believe that people would buy his crap long-term!

I think as time goes on more and more people will realize the PresBo speaks out of both sides of his mouth.

Adrienne said...

Ah Kevin - am I going mad? I swear your blog looked completely different this afternoon. I left a comment and it's gone, too.
I even visited the people that did your new website look. Now it's gone. Tell me I'm not having some sort of alcoholic flashback...

The Black Sphere said...

@Adrienne - Check www.theblacksphere.net for your comment. I don't delete comments, unless I specifically say I am going to.

Terry @ Breathing Grace said...

So I'm in my car, on way to my daughter's band performance on Thursday night, and the radio host says that coming up in the next half-hour, he will be interviewing Kevin Jackson, author of The Big Black Lie.

Of course, priorities being what they are, I had to leave the car to listen to my daughter play her flute, and missed your interview.

But I was wondering...is there a replay online somewhere that I could listen to? If so, what's the link? If not, maybe I'll catch you another time.

The Black Sphere said...

@Terry - I am not sure what show. WORL was the last interview I did. Catch me another time, and I will try to make an announcement, so people know.

The most innocently naive of liberals have an idea of health care that amounts to, "our health care system would be perfect and running a surplus if only those unhealthy people stopped using it. Why couldn't they eat apples instead of Twinkies?"

The serious ideologues are truly monstrous people. They believe in abortion, assisted suicide, euthanasia, sterilization, etc. as they believe humans are the worst thing ever created, but that of all humans, they believe they are the best and the rest are expendable.

Neither has a place in sane rational government.

Obama is the usual stereotypical idiot 70s style liberal who sees the glass as more than half empty and going quick and he has to grab what he can for him and his and too bad so sad for the rest. That kind of depressingly pessimistic worldview, especially when it is gallingly couched in false optimism and tarring of his truly optimistic opponents in an Alice in Wonderland reversal of reality, is nothing that should ever be in charge of other human beings.

And the country is waking up to that.

They can spin it any way they like, but the country trusts the liberals to be at best grabby selfish children and at worst to hate the country they are currently running. And why should they get any other idea? Didn't they just spend the last eight years telling us how horrible the USA is?

Think about it. Didn't the same bunch of people just spend eight years telling us that USA is the worst nation on Earth and that we cannot trust the government, and that the whole planet hates us? And they want us to let that government control our medical care???

Earth to liberals, you've shifted the paradigm without engaging the clutch, sociocultural transmission is bombing out, we're headed off road, call AAA...

Adrienne said...

Well, duh to me!! I popped onto your new website by way of some other blog. Not paying attention (I do have ADD, after all), I just thought it was your newly designed blog.

Later I went to your blog by way of my Google Reader and became very, very confused.

I knew you would never, ever delete one of my pithy comments. I really thought I may have suffered a minor mini-stroke.

So now it's all sorted out - blog meet website! Two different places, doncha know.

I'm telling you all this, not because I think you care (why should you?), but because I don't want you to think I'm some dumb white chick (can you be 63 and still called a "chick"?)

Keep up the fine work. I always look forward to your posts!

It was The Conservative Comeback.

Kevin, I want to purchase your book. I have no doubt that you will help me with further understanding. My support of your position is not about "black vrs white" or winning a debate but rather trying to understand the "venom" from liberals and blacks when you say anything negative about this guy.....
I want your take on this if you have not already read through this. Please help me understand if this is rightwing lunacy or a portrayal of a timeline based on fact. I'm having a real difficult time with my Elite black lawyer friend. He has called me a "racist" just by the sheer notion that I question Obama's credentials and leadership. It will take some time but I and I can only imagine many of your readers would be intrested.
Thanks for your honesty.

If this man gets his way and they push through any form of government health care, I hope and pray that decent people will rise up and rebel. What ever happens then, will be on the heads of the soulless, Godless leftists in Washington. I am ready willing and able to fight them in the streets or any where else. You do not win by compromising with the devil.

Hello Birdy said...

Other people's value, including granny Toots, is only equal to their usefulness to Obama. All others are mere props, background noise.

That is the nature of a serious narcissist with delusions of grandeur who has neither the wit nor the experience to carry it off.

We are all paying for this last presidential election gone terribly wrong.

The worse of the two evils was chosen. Let us hope the choices are better next time around.

The Black Sphere said...

@anon - I suggest you buy the book here http://www.amazon.com/BIG-Black-Lie-Learned-Democrat/dp/061530222X

As for your friend and the timeline, you are muddling your argument. Citizen or not, Obama is just a TERRIBLE president, to say nothing of him as a person. He can't even CHOOSE competent people.

Change the subject to the Dems historic racism. That's an easily winnable battle. Make him do research around the Civil Rights movement, beginning in 1866.

Take care

The Black Sphere said...

@Most Rev - I agree that like the Civil Rights movement, conservatives must take the liberals seriously, and treat them like the enemy they are.

Lynn McMiller said...

My hubby had his hip replaced (and he is otherwise perfectly healthy) and it cost over $50K! But how can you deny anyone who is in pain the chance to feel better?

What Obama is proposing is health insurance for everyone (and even that won't happen), but not health CARE for everyone. As usual for the liberals, they've lost sight of the forest for the trees.

Its an uneducated grab at health care reform at best, and a diabolical attempt to kill off the high cost baby boomer generation at worst.

Where is the following information.

* Panahou Academy school records, 5th through 12th grades
* Occidental College records, including financial aid information.
* Columbia University records, including the missing senior thesis and financial aid information.
* Harvard University records, including information on how a student who never wrote anything (that can be found) was elected president of the prestigious law review, and including information on how Harvard Law School was afforded by humble community agitator, Barack Obama.
* Obama’s Illinois state senate records and papers, mysteriously lost.

I'm not a fan of what Obama is doing, but the level of Socialization in the US has brought us to this point.

Short of a major overhaul of the Federal government, the only way to fix this is to start over.

Pamela D. Hart said...

Kevin: Your blog is awesome. I realize that is not the most refined word, but it sums it up so well! Your writing is brilliant. I blogrolled you and hope others find and link you as well. Keep up the great work and congratulations on your book!

I have been involved with a debate on Facebook on the issue of healthcare. Some do not like that an Australian could dare make a comment :). What they forget is that I am giving evidence of what it is like to have govt run healthcare and my evidence runs counter to their ideas. :)

So far on the facebook poll, the majority who have voted are against what Obama is proposing. The Obots have turned up and some have been trying their strawman arguments of refuting myths that they have made up (I think I got that lady quite mad but someone who went to her blog discovered that she was doing it for Obama - Astroturfer no doubt). There are others who have been willing to listen and then there are the idiots who are socialists in their agenda and who do nothing but make rude remarks towards others.

Some have a confused idea that Jesus would approve of govt run health care but hey not according to the Gospels I read - he wanted people to care for others out of their own means but he said nothing about govt taking high taxes and then not providing what they promise.

Keep up the good work

just fyi...the book link does not work. Good luck! I will check it out.
