Today is the day Americans give thanks; thanks for the bounty of blessings made possible by freedom. While out driving this evening I was listening to the Mark Levin show and sit here now giving thanks that in just less than one year we still have one more chance to get rid of the blight of progressive liberalism that threatens to destroy this beloved country.
One of Mark’s callers tonight was a brain surgeon. A brain surgeon who recently attended a seminar in Washington, D.C.; a gathering of highly-trained medical colleagues who were apparently given a preview of coming Obamacare attractions by the Department of Health & Human Services.
What this doctor calmly laid out was chilling. Should you or a loved one find yourself experiencing a stroke or other such serious, life-threatening neurological event and are rushed to the emergency room, unless you are less than 70 years old you can forget about receiving anything more than “comfort care” unless the “ethics panel” from whom your neurosurgeon must request permission to do anything else decides that your value as a “unit” is worth the expense.
Even if it’s 2 a.m.
Yes, Virginia; Sarah Palin was right. “Death panels” are actively being developed even as you read these words; though from the sound of it we, the people, conveniently aren’t supposed to hear about it until after the election.
You don’t have to be a brain surgeon to know this is wrong.
