Stuck in the shallows (Garrison Keillor Again Calls for Genocide of Republicans)
Chicago Tribune ^ | 9/30/2009 | Garrison Keillor

Posted on 09/30/2009 10:27:58 AM PDT by Jack Wilson

... one starts to wonder if the country wouldn't be better off without them and if Republicans should be cut out of the health-care system entirely and simply provided with aspirin and hand sanitizer. Thirty-two percent of the population identifies with the GOP, and if we cut off health care to them, we could probably pay off the deficit in short order.

Keillor periodically suggests cutting off healthcare to Republicans. He must not be aware of just who it is who provides the healthcare.

Replace 'Republican' with black and see what happens.

As long as they also let us NOT pay into the scam I am okay with his idea.

Why not make a trade?

We give up national health care and Democrats give up national defense?

Good luck defending yourselves Blue States!

By what authority would anyone, including the government, be able to “cut off” health care to anyone, let alone “GOP”ers?

Many years ago, I enjoyed his radio show. Fortunately, his liberalism turned me off and I’ve been spared hearing or reading any of these sick words.

The frakin idoitic morons have the majority in the House and Senate and can’t pass their beloved socialistic healthcare initiative. But yeah, please continue to blame the Repubs and make denial further en vogue among Libtards.

This dude just doesn’t get it does he? Even if we were all cut off, some of us would learn to become doctors and begin providing services to those denied. Come to think of it, this may not be a bad idea, having a separate health system for conservatives; I bet our insurance costs would plummet.

No, we’ll still be paying for it. They regard us as a disposable tax resource, less then human.

Every leftist government needs a scapegoat, a group to dehumanize.

Dear Idiot:

You would be cutting off the people who do the work.

Your deficit would skyrocket.

Go back to picking apples or whatever you think you do.

Does that mean I am also cut out of having to pay for it? Then I’m in! I mean out.

I think most Republicans would be glad to decide how to spend their own money on their own healthcare. I’d opt for HSA and catastrophic insurance.

Will this apply to a doctor who is a Republican? Will he be allowed to treat himself, or would his personal Commissar beat him down if he tries to?

Could the government agency which determines if you have any nasty "Republican" tendencies which decides if you live or die be called a "Death Panel"?

Will Garrison Keillor be willing to personally use force up to and including killing any doctor or Republican who tries to have back alley chemotherapy?

What would the difference between people joining the Democrat Party to be able to get treatment and people joining the Communist Party to be able to get a job or an apartment in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union?

I’d be all for giving republicans the option not to participate (pay into or receive benefits form) centralized healthcare, but of course, that’s not what he advocates, because like all marxists, the real goal is not really to provide for the people, but to steal from the collective individuals in order to promote the interests of the group... or in other words, spread the misery.

Typical leftwing moonbat. He thinks that if you cut off the nations entire taxpaying base, Money will fall from the sky, and the deficit will just disappear.

Conservatives and liberals can agree on the basics -- that the nation wallows in debt, that it is shortsighted of the states to cut back on the most essential work of government which is the education of the young, and that somehow we have got to become a more productive nation and less consumptive -- but the ruffles and flourishes of Washington seem ever more irrelevant to the crises we face.

Indoctrinating the youngest citizens--and doing a terrible job, too--is neither the "most essential work" nor the proper purpose of the Federal government. If it were, it would be in the Constitution.

Has this moron ever even read the Constitution, or does he perhaps believe that "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs" is contained within its Preamble?

I would wager that those 32% pay at least 50% of the personal income and business taxes in this country, so I'd forget about that paying off the deficit thingie, Fishface.

And now he’s calling for death as a solution to our political disagreements.

Where’s the surprise?

Nothing, if it's a liberal. I didn't see anybody getting upset at Ginsburg when she admitted that she thought they were legalizing abortion so they could solve the problem of too many blacks being born in the cities.

Keillor’s off his meds again. Hey Garrison, go wind yourself up with some more hate, maybe another stroke might do you some good. Really calm you down.

Folks, Keillor is what’s referred to as “Minnesota Nice” - the Twin Cities version of it. The passive agressive snark in this region is making me forget about the civilizing influence of 12 years in Texas, and bringing back my native New Jersey influences.

An option that isn't possible, since any liabilities of the so-called "public option" will be considered liabilities of the Federal government at large, just like Social Security is a liability of the Federal government at large.

When the program inevitably fails, just as every one of its fellow Socialist endeavors conducted by the Federal government, those who never collected any benefits whatsoever will still be on the hook to clean up the mess.

I walked right past this joker one day in a grocery store parking lot I said Hi he totally blew me off.
He just got out of the Mayo clinic after treatment for a mild stoke, perhaps too soon? Someone should check him out.

S - Ask the individual to SMILE.
T - Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
R - Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 999/911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke ———— Stick out Your Tongue
Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other , that is also an indication of a stroke.

Jews were not the only ones murdered at the concentration camps by the Nazi German state.

Anyone who opposed the Nazi state or its stated goals ended up there. Folks from countries occupied by Nazi forces ended up there too.

Absolutely fine with me. As long as, if we are cut out, we also don’t have to pay for it. You’ll find that when you cut out the producers in society, society fails. But, alas, common sense usually eludes you guys.

Keillor and the rest of the leftists who think that education should be provided by the Federal government are complete and utter morons.

Federal involvement in education has only resulted in dramatically reduced quality of education, the devaluation of the high school and college diplomas, and immense price increases.

It's a pity that the Republicans were too cowardly and short-sighted to actually keep their promises and reduce the Department of Education to rubble. Instead of cutting off subsidies for leftist academia's continued indoctrination and brainwashing of American youth, they enlarged the bureaucracy and cemented it further by passing No Child Left Behind.
