In a one-line blog post, "Health Reform: Euthanasia and Other Rumors," Time magazine's Karen Tumulty pointed readers to a blog post at The New Republic's Web site set on "Exposing the Euthanasia Scare" that has cropped up in the debate over health care reform:
Harold Pollack dispenses with them (and their sources) here.
Albeit in kinder, gentler language, Pollack posited that opposition to socialized medicine among American senior citizens was due to racism, xenophobia, and homophobia
the more they play the race card, the less people buy it.
Desperation requires the use of labels.
I pray they continue to use such tactics because it will invariably only make the growing majority against Barry that more angrier. The people are getting fed up with this BS. Failing to recognize or acknowledge such only leads to their future doom, in one form or another.
Well I would think a black man trying to kill old white grandmas is... a l’il racist, but as long as he smiles and makes no sudden moves, she won’t suspect a thing.
Once we've gotten to the point, and we're there, where everything is due to racism, then nothing is due to racism. The term has lost its sting. And, thus, the word has lost its power. I wonder what these @$$holes will try next, once they figure out that their kryptonite doesn't scare anybody anymore.
Yeah, these morons will still be going to that well even as the National Blade begins singing.
"..Harold Pollack is a Professor at the School of Social Service Administration, and faculty chair of the Center for Health Administration Studies...."
I read his bio; a Liberal social engineer who still cannot accept the concept that Government programs cannot increase IQ.
He is of the U. Chicago Marxist crowd ZerO and Cruella De Ville hung and got grants with...public dollars to fund Socialists who tell us with mouthfuls of bacon-wrapped scallops and a mouthful of pinot grigio that we should pay more taxes in order to help the institutionally-trapped “poor” they enjoy patronizing.
They are whining the Republicans are going to lose the Mexican and Gay voters. HO HO HO. They better worry about the White voters. Many of my Democrat friends here in Florida are waking up. I think Obama will finally destroy the Communist National Socialist Democrat Party. Yip Yip Yahoo!!! No white guy in his right mind would vote for these Democrat Racists.
Apparently roughly 60% of the country is part of an ‘extremist mob’

WAIT ONE MOMENT......
Its called reparations and it is only just. Please don’t taint this argument with logic or reason.
Liberals can not ever admit that are wrong about even the facts and logic spoil their efforts.
If they don’t get their way, it will always be because of the the mean, the hateful, the rich and the stupid. (Did I mention those to cling to guns and religion?)
