Obama: Angry Townhalls Prove Need for Cheaper Meds
http://www.scrappleface.com/?p=4093 ^ | Scott Ott

President Barack Obama said today, that America needs government-run health care to provide low-cost medication to citizens who suffer from bouts of anger and depression.

“Clearly there are mental health issues which are not receiving proper attention under our current health care system,” the president said during his weekly Saturday radio address. “I’ve seen the red-faced citizens, shouting themselves hoarse, even babbling incoherently about rationing, loss of liberty, socialism and the like. These folks need help that the big insurance companies won’t give them because they’d rather line the pockets of their fat-cat stockholders.”

That’s the trouble with the Osama administration. When it comes to the Bammies, satire can easily become reality. The whole damn country has gone mad.

Stranger things have happened in O’Zorro’s administration. Things like appointing self-avowed Communists as ‘Czars.’

Of course, the media would cover for him if he tried something like that, So I digress.

Heh...well, that was funny - even though it was an ignorant statement. Nothing that I would not expect from Obama...ha.

“Heh...well, that was funny - even though it was an ignorant statement. Nothing that I would not expect from Obama...ha.”

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

Keep it up boys and girls.

Here’s a joke I got in my e-mail today:

ROBOT BARTENDER

A guy goes into a bar and there is a robot bartender.
The robot says, “What will you have?”
The guy answers, “Martini, please.”
The robot brings back the best martini ever and says to the man, “What’s your IQ?”
The guy answers, “168.”
The robot then proceeds to talk about physics, space exploration and medical technology.

The guy leaves, but he is curious, so he goes back into the bar.
The robot bartender says, “What will you have?”
The guy says, “Martini”.
Again, the robot makes a great martini, gives it to the man and says, “What’s your IQ?”
The guy says, “100.” The robot then starts to talk about Nascar, Budweiser and John Deere tractors.

The guy leaves, but this whole encounter very interesting and thought to himself that he’ll try it just one more time.
He returns to the bar.
The robot says, “What will you have?”
The guy says, “Martini”, and the robot brings him another great martini. The robot then says, “What’s your IQ?”
The guy says, “Uh, about 50.”
The robot leans in really close and says, “So ... are you people still happy you voted for Obama?”

The unbelievable cheek of this monster. Because we are angry at the govt take over efforts, we all now should be referred for a section 8 and then psychotropic drugs for our anger and depression. This arrogant fool so so full of himself that he refuses to see that we are angry at him and what he and his Marxist thugs are trying to do to our republic! Da(* him!

What caught my eye is that I don't know any liberals who aren't on anti-depressant meds. I think those drugs directly interfere with something majorly important in their brains, and that's the real reason they want everyone on them.

As well, things have gotten so absurd I can easily imagine Obama actually making a remark like this - and liberals unanimously agreeing with him.

It may be parody on Scrappleface but in Obama’s eyes and his twisted mind, that’s probably exactly what he believes (if his teleprompter tells him it’s so).

Definitely a good laugh.

No, I didn't find out yet if Eric Holder is responsible for Phillip Garrido's premature lease from prison back in the '80s, but Eric's whole family are from Barbadoes and there are a whale of a lot of Garridos living there. Could be his doggone cousin or something.

A major problem of libs and Dems is their failure to consider that opponents to their hare-brained schemes might have honest reasons. They just can’t understand how anyone could possibly oppose any of the myriad lunatic scams they’ve foisted on Americans for the past forty/fifty years. We know them a lot better than they know us.

Satire yes but.....

If the govt runs Psyc medicine and no one but government sponsored practioners are allowed and decrees of psyc doctors have an impact.

Folks you’ve just figured out the importance of govt healthcare to controlling the populace.
