“Whom God would destroy, He first makes mad.”
The American people have lost their minds for allowing this to contine.
Our destruction can’t be far behind!
My niece is an OB/GYN who took her pre-med at HAAAAVVAAAAADDD! Needless to say, she emerged from that experience a FLAMING, BLEEDING HEART LIBERAL.
Upon completing her medical training at yet another liberal university, she interned at a hospital near the border in San Diego.
It was there that a mystical transformation took place: She began to connect the heavy deductions from the GROSS EARNINGS for which she busted her butt for as many as 72 virtually sleepless hours in a row with the taxis and jalopies regularly sliding to the curb in front of the ER.
Many of them contained pregnant illegals who won the race to deliver their babies HERE. She caught many of those babies who, under the current — and ERRONEOUS — interpretation of the 14th Amendment were IMMEDIATELY NEW AMERICANS. The mother who, obviously, could not care for the child if she were back in her native land — could not be deported now even if the INS and the political bosses WANTED her deported . And as the mother of a new US citizen, the woman could remain here for about as long as she cared to and that was usually for life.
Most of those patients were welfare recipients and the deliveries were charity cases: The bill for the hospitals and HER services were routinely spread over the bills of those who DO pay. And what the other users of those facilities don’t cover went back to the taxpayers.
And since my niece was now a taxpayer, they were costing HER.
And while she may not exactly be a libertarian, today shes now a LOOONNNNG way from Haaaavaaaaaad.
And just so the bleeders who might see this dont think me some sort of ethnocentric bigot, I submit this problem is MORE than just about illegals.
Before my oldest daughter was born at University Hospital in Cleveland in 1967, I sat in the main lobby as welfare mother-to-be after welfare mother-to-be shuffled through the door to the maternity ER for THEIR free deliveries.
Before WE could take OUR daughter home, I had to cough up over 3 grand. And that was a great deal of dough in 1967, especially for a guy just out of the USAF.
As I wrote the check, I remembered the magazine article Id recently read by a hospital administrator from Massachusetts who admitted that all US hospitals practiced a form of medical Marxism, spreading the costs of care for indigents over the bills of those who DO pay for care. Given the move to socialism here, it probably will never be otherwise: Not counting Byzantine complexity and confusion, government produces and has — NOTHING unless it first takes it from some PERSON. SOMEBODY ALWAYS PAYS.
Look, I have a big enough problem paying for the 3rd and 4th generation slackers and welfare bums who were BORN here.
Its time we stopped paying for those who were not.
Agreed. Atlas had better start shrugging. In SoCal it is absolutely ridiculous. And it will be like this EVERYWHERE soon.
The American people have overwhelmingly opposed this with every fiber of their being time after time after time.
Don't believe me? When was the last time you heard of the Senate phone system being utterly overwhelmed over any other issue? And yet it happened, in May of this year.
The people we have put into office are simply criminals themselves. A criminal is someone who ignores laws he finds inconvenient. The current occupant of the White House and pretty much all of his buddies in the Congress have conveniently ignored our immigration laws, and subjected the Americans to the most incredibly massive crime wave in our history, something so momentous in human history that it has no equivalent.
It is simply the end of our democracy, the finish of the Republic. No reasonable person can say that our laws mean anything at this point, when despots simply flaunt those laws.
Ordinary solutions are now beyond possible. Where we go from here can only be towards radical, wrenching solutions. If the descendants of the original Americans cannot find the stomach to do that, then they and their children are finished, and what will emerge will be little more than a nuclear armed version of Hugo Chavez' ugly thugocracy.
My children were born while I was in the USAF ...
I was fortunate that I was covered under the military medical system and CHAMPUS for my children...we paid some but not all for their care...
since watchimg the billions spent on illegal aliens for OB/GYN and nonemergency medical care, I dont feel that I was afforded anything free...
I was serving my country...not breaking into it for free handouts...
Dick, I had a bunch of these slacker types that were relatives. I supported them all, kept them off welfare, from being bankrupt, all their creditors got paid. 3 generations of them. I'm tired enough paying for our own.
WHERE'S THE FENCE!!
Oh, yeah, the Senate pulled the funding....
Good post. We have had a socialistic medical system for at least forty years now. Always somebody riding the gravy train, while the naive taxpayers are the ones pushing it along.
