... 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.

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!
His numbers for republicans is way off.
Stinking Marxist thug. And my tax dollars pay his salary.
Defund the Left. End taxpayer support of public broadcasting state media.
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.
Lulz, libtards stuck on stupid.
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.
I call for the genocide of Garrison.
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.
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.
“...Republicans should be cut out of the health-care system entirely and simply provided with aspirin and hand sanitizer...”
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.
These people are idiots. Lets trade. Republicans don’t have to have government healthcare if they don’t have to pay for it.
Funny. That's all I heard throughout your entire diatribe against conservatives.
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?
And they claim we're divisive, intolerant, and want to start a civil war.
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.
That, and give ‘em the two left coasts, and stay out of flyover country...
Do you think that is why they want us to get the H1N1 vaccine?
That sounds like a good idea. How many doctors are Republicans?
Here’s a man who knows and understands his audience. Most Republicans don’t even know who he is.
This guy is absolutely disgusting.....just imagine the outcry if it was say Glenn Beck writing that we should whack all the Dims....on second thought, great idea!
Than it would be time to withdraw from the “official” economy as well, in as many ways as possible. The Mafia, at this point, would be more honest to deal with than the Gov.
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.
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 wonder what his DUmmie screenname is?
We should encourage them to secede from us. Yes, it would be a terrible price for us to pay (sob, sniff), but we do want them to be happy.
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.
This clown would have made an excellent Nazi. They hated Americans too!
He’s an untalented bumpkin who recycles the same old 6 or 7 tired verbal-eye-rolling-snide-dry-humor “jokes” over and over again with an air of absolute religious self-absorption and self-pretension that induces instant vomiting in anyone with half a brain in their head.
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.
I was going to ask when Garrison turned into an egotistical, hateful, ignorant old woman but then I realized that he has always been thus.
The same authority they're planning to use to seize control of it in the first place.
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.
Hey Keillor, Why not just take all of our assests and give them to the state and march all of us in to gas chambers at the re-education camps just like your ild did in NAZI Germany to the Jews, you fascist POS>
Remind me to think of something hideous and nuclear to do with Lake Woebegone (an imaginary place, b/t/w).
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.
probably the guy that keeps telling all his fellow DUer pals how he's going to enjoy killing Republicans when the civil war starts.
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.
just posted this comment:
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.
“The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money” - Margaret Thatcher
Keillor is a congenital idiot.
In my opinion, the act of making other citizens liable for my individual (or our collective) mistakes is not just to infringe upon their liberties, but also their rights.
I thought he was already dead?
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.
