If you're not creeped out by ObamaCare yet, you will be after you've read this passage from the New York Times transcript of the president's "town hall" meeting in Portsmouth, N.H., yesterday: "The rumor that's been circulating a lot lately is this idea that somehow the House of Representatives voted for death panels' that will basically pull the plug on grandma because we've decided that we don't--it's too expensive to let her live anymore.

No, we certainly are not! I pay less than $20 a month for my healthcare (Medicare and Blue Cross, Blue Shield) since I retired. You can’t beat that anywhere.
One day he will stand before God and give an accounting. I don’t want to be standing near him when the demons come charging up out of hell to drag him down with them. It won’t be pretty.
correction: they give me also $40 toward my medicare.
all the statesmanship and respect gone for generations...
suddenly the trainride scene in "Unforgiven" comes true as English Bob says...'the president, ? why not ***** the president ? '
