Death Panels

Bill Whittle: Sarah Palin Was Right About Death Panels

To follow up on last week’s story about Howard Dean emerging from the unreality bubble just long enough to admit that the IPAB is about rationing, Bill Whittle took on the infamous Death Panels. Of course, Whittle knocked it out of the park.  See for yourself… H/T: America’s Watchtower

Paul Krugman Advocates for “non-existent” Death Panels Again

If you recall, Paul Krugman, the uber-liberal economist that never met a stimulus he didn’t like, was caught supporting “death panels” on the This Week Program.  That was in 2011.  Well, he was caught again. Doug Ross (no relation) and Weasel Zippers have the details… I’m guessing that Sparky McEnron didn’t realize he was being videotaped: Eventually we do have a problem. That the population is getting older, health care costs are rising… there is this question of how we’re going to pay for the programs. The year 2025, the year 2030, something is going to have to give… We’re […]

Babies: There’s a Death Panel for That!

Sorry for the flippant title, but it’s so horrifying that I had to make a absurdity of it.  Sadly, the truth is far more disturbing.  It seems that that the NHS, the British National Health System, has set up a protocol, or death panel, to deal with the “less than desirable” babies born in the UK.  GateWay Pundit has more… The Daily Mail reported: Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’. Until now, end of life regime the Liverpool Care Pathway was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill adults. […]

Obama's Budget Speech Mentions the Death Panel?

That most depised, and derided, part of the ObamaCare legislation, the Death Panels, are again making waves on the blogs.  Erick Erickson of Redstate and Bunkerville have both taken a look at Obama’s speech, and have came to the conclusion that he had made thinly veiled references to the “death panels.” I happen to agree. Here is  a brief excerpt from Redstate… While everyone else was focused on Barack Obama bashing Paul Ryan, I noticed that he took full ownership of death panels yesterday. Naturally, Obama did not call them death panels. He called them “an independent commission of doctors, nurses, medical […]

Two Children, Two Countries: Who Lives and who Dies?

Every now and again, there is a story the really makes the consequences of policy decisions crystal clear.  Roxanne de Luca, at the Camp of the Saints, has published such a post. Take a look… Your ultimate feel-good story of the day: a little boy with no cerebellum is inexplicably normal.   When little Chase Britton was born, he was legally blind; when he was a year old, doctors did a MRI and said that it looked like he was a vegetable – except that Chase laughs, cries, sits up, crawls, is starting to learn how to walk, and colours. Read […]

Death Panels, Birthers, and the Set Up

Two stories have come up lately that seem fishy to me.  One, I covered the other day, on the end of life care issue, which was originally referred to as the Death Panels.  The other is the birth certificate issue.  Apparently, Chris Matthews, and the Governor of Hawaii have, out of nowhere, begun talking about the birth certificates issue. That issue has gone on for some time now.  I wrote about it about a year and a half ago… When this issue really started “taking off,” it reminded me of some of the “dirty tricks” the Clinton Administration used to […]

Does Single Payer Kill?

My recent heath care posts have brought on some reactions.  I’ve gotten quite a few spam comments (still in the queue) regarding them.  Most are attempts at lib talking points, but they are nothing if not persistent.  One was kind enough to leave a link in the shoutbox regarding people dying due to lack of insurance.  However, the link comes up as not existing. Since this claim comes from Rep. Grayson, it might likely be dismissed as pure propaganda, as that is all the left has to offer. Then, I received this spam comment on my last post about single […]

Olbermann Loses His Mind: Liberal Propaganda Causes Mental Illness

Kindly take a look at his incoherent diatribe.  Warning: rant to follow Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy I don’t talk about this much, and certainly never on the blog, but I was with my father when he died of an incurable illness.  I respect his memory too much to use him to score political points.  You see, I have no need to exploit the misery of others to make a political point.   That’s the benefit of having the truth on your side. However, Mr. Olbermann, has no similar self inhibitions, nor does he […]

Sarah Palin, Nancy Pelosi, Ezekiel Emanuel, and the “Death Panels”

So, with the announcement/unveiling of PelosiCare, the Heath Care debate has heated up once again. Here’s my take on several of the debated issues. Death Panels:  First, let me say that have a strong dislike for this term.  I believe it to be the hyperbolic, and not accurate to the true form and function of the heath care rationing that is to come.   That being said, there are some are some patterns in the actions of the government that suggest that there will be rationing decisions made that will end lives.  When Sara Palin suggested that people are going to […]
