    Do Democrats really want to go down the road where age determines treatment? When it’s your Mom and Dad, grandparents, etc. or someday yourself? Or do they only mean age applies to Republicans? Democrats are beneath contempt. A neighbor of ours came by yesterday to chat and made a crack about Cheney getting a heart considering his age and also made a crack about how long he had to wait. How do we know how long he had to wait? I asked her if she really wanted age as a criteria for what healthcare is available and she said no. I guess not considering she has an ailing husband with alot wrong with him and he’s in his sixties. Wonderful people but skewered thinking.

    Cheney recovers, runs Boston Marathon in May, announces bid for 2012 Presidential Campaign, brokers convention, wins in November.

    (And 250,000 Democrats head explode the day after Election Day.)

  • Adirondack Patriot

    By the way, what if it was Travyon Martin’s heart that was transplanted? That’s another 250,000 Democrat heads that would explode!

    What Death Panel?

    There is no Death Panel–at least, not yet.

    All there is now is a howling mob, complete with torches, pitchforks, buckets of human waste and an endless supply of the “f” word.

    Such are the governing credentials of modern progressive liberalism

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Let me get this straight: Palin was LYING about non-existant “death panels” but Cheney should have been denied by one.

    Oh, let me see, what if their 70 year old dad or mother needed a transplant and had 7 heart attacks for the past 20 years. Ask yourself, would he be too old. And for liberals to admit that Obama care has death panels, well, Sarah had done her work rather well.

    You all knew that the radical and mindless left would have some insults and hate for Cheney and a heart transplant. Normal and caring people are happy that donors are out their to help others live no matter what the age of the recipient, and so very graciously the Cheney’s made the statement of how very grateful they are to the donor.

    Obama care needs to be defeated. And for health insurance, Cheney pays for the care he is given and Obama has nothing to do with in and these people and others needs to keep their ___ out of it. Stay out of our life and our health care.

  • greenfairie

    That’s why I don’t want the government in charge of health care. Older people need most of the expensive, complex medical treatment. Imagine a world where if you’re over 65, you can’t get cancer treatment because the government would rather spend its budget on a 25-year-old who wants a sex change. Or if you’re 85, you can’t be able to get hip replacement surgery because it’s not “worth it” to perform that service for someone due to croak soon anyway.

    The very young and the disabled will also be denied treatment.

  • Taqiyyotomist


    Undoubtedly, another glass was raised in the White House today:

    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – An Afghan soldier shot and killed two British troops Monday at a NATO coalition base in southern Afghanistan before being gunned down by international forces, officials said.

    Obama is laughing.

    That is exactly where we are headed.

  • Patty

    Man becomes oldest transplant recipient, 84

    AND THIS IS ON MSNBC. Where was the outrage on the left in this case. You can see what Obama has done to the American way of life. What he has done to divide this Great Nation.

    The left is making idiots of themselves. Blatantly.

  • Dig up Zombie Reagan to become “the people’s choice” for President and make Cheney his Vice-President. Unbeatable combination that would scare Russians, terrorists and Marxists the world over.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    OT From yesterday:

    Well, I am guessing that it wasn’t a “white-hispanic”.

  • srdem65

    There are million of us seniors who have opted out of the radical care system that modern medicine has invented We don’t want to be hooked up to respirators, have parts removed that will make life unbearable, don’t want chemo that might not work. Take out the appendix, sure, treat broken bones, OK, give us morphine to ease the pain, why not.

    We all want to live. It’s programmed into our DNA. It’s how we live that we control.

  • Patty

    After suffering so many attacks and breathing apparatus recently, if there was a need for someone to have a Transplant, Cheney is.

    And he is not out of the woods, yet. And yet, the left in their hateful way come out and say things that only Satan himself would say. This is exactly why some people hate Tebow and others who live their life with God every day and thank Him.

    It gives us pause, it make us feel good but for the liberal they continue to hate. Live in the hands of Satan. No regrets, they keep on spewing their anger and demise others who aren’t like them.

    America is standing up against this evil. Thank God

  • Patty

    dimise. but they dismiss others ideas because they are theirs.

  • Patty

    correction again (aren’t theirs)

    Yahoo had something up almost immediately yesterday. Don’t know if it’s the same because I did not bother to click it. Made me furious because I watch how they toy with anything against Repubs, then bring it front and center.

    Love how Jim just shed a little light on the roaches (Professional MSM Pooper-Scoopers).

  • dba…vagabond trader

    Just returned from my doc, she is furious about he11care and its mandate for comfort measures only if you are 70 years old and suffer a stroke.


    “Opted out” are the operative words. Choices are between you and your care provider. Kathleen Sebelius and her team of commiecrats have no business determining my fate.

    ABC took down the link you had Jim, now it goes to hotel prank! Scrubbing the news is the ABC of news.

  • Sally

    Why don’t we simply cut to the chase.

    Anyone who pledges allegiance to communism, Mr. Obama, One World Government and evil-

    you will live and we will do everything in our power to sustain you in the best possible life style.

    Anyone who raises questions about communism, Mr. obama. One World Government and evil and/or who is passionate about the U.S. constitution, liberty and U.S. soveignty-

    you are worthless to the “cause” and not worth it- so die- the sooner the better, please.

  • liberals have no problem when one of their own gets a transplant…….david cosby got liver transplant a known drinker and drug user……steve jobs received liver transplant even when he had rare form of pancreatic cancer,Mickey Mantle received a liver transplant at the age 63 to die weeks later……God bless Cheney hope lives to be 100 ……….

  • west 1890

    Palin was right. Obamacare will be used to cull seniors and anyone who opposes the Communist agenda they’ve set in place for the U.S.

  • NeoKong

    What a bunch of hateful bastards.
    They are really asking if we should just let Dick Cheney die.

    Pretend it was Al Gore.
    Not for one damn millisecond would they ever consider if Al Gore was worthy of a heart transplant and they would be HORRIFIED it someone else did.
    Matt Lauer would probably donate his own heart if it was necessary.
    They would be doing a special on it.
    We would have in depth interviews with the doctor and then they would all bite their lip and wish Gore a speedy recovery and offer their prayers.

    I am 73 and have had a leaky heart valve for about 8 years. Most people over 70 have some degree of heart problems but most people who live to be 65 live to be 85. that is a lot of voters that waited till they were 65 to become eligible for medicare and now hoards of liberals are calling for life saving procedures be denied to people over 71. Expect that to be reflected in the next election if you all talk it over with your elder relatives. Ask them to tell you that they want you just let them die if they are older than 71.

  • eddie

    Ted Kennedy had 3 operations in a years time and nothing was ever said about death panels then. Kennedy was 77.

  • Patty

    Normal time to wait for heart transplants is a few months. Cheney waited 20 and if he can afford this then he has every right.

    Liberals have some of the most hateful thoughts in their head. And we should ignore them but we are only human. I dare them to say these things in Public and MSNBC has, here it is.

    SCHULTZ (01:59): I just want all of you to know that I get my entertainment through NewsBusters. (laughs, then in mincing voice)

    How dare the Democrats make fun of Dick Cheney’s heart problems and turn it into a political football. (back to normal voice, to the extent possible) I can just hear some little weasel who’s writing that at NewsBusters. You’re my entertainment.

    Bozell, Bozell and his bozo crew. You’re damn right, Dick Cheney’s heart’s a political football. We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him. I’m glad he didn’t tip over. He is the new poster child for health care in this country.

    SCHULTZ (04:38): And we want Shooter to make it. Hell, we hope he goes and shoots somebody else in the face. That was a helluva story way back when.

    SCHULTZ (05:26): How come Dick Cheney’s health care isn’t being dropped? Do you realize that if you had five heart attacks, hell, you wouldn’t get past two heart attacks and they’d dump you.

    But because you’re a war criminal and because you are on the take from Haliburton and you had these executive meetings in 2001 back in the, you know, the days of the rolling blackouts and executive privilege on how we’re going to develop energy policy in this country, you do stuff like that, hell, you can get the best health care on the face of the earth.

    Why Florida Senate Democrats voted with Republicans on “Stand Your ground” law: “We’d be seen as Democrats soft on crime”

  • YourMaster

    wait… let me get this straight… democrats are still using propaganda to say see there are ‘no death panels in 0bamacare because Cheney got his heart transplant?’

    *ROFL* umm…. 0bamacare doesn’t got into full effect until 2014
    ……then, that’s when beuracrats hold presidence over who lives and dies….
    if they deem you someone too old to get a transplant…. as in the see someone 30 yrs younger whom they deem has a high chance of living a longer lifespan than you…

    then what they will decide FOR YOU…. (and you don’t have any say after 2014)
    is that…. maybe, a few pain killers or meds that reduce your blood pressure (which may hopefully reduce your risk of a heart attack….)

    would be better for you than…. surgery/new heart.
    even if ya may need the surgery… what determines whether you get it, is how important you are to society… and how much life you may have left to live in your lifetime…
    ….someone at 71… they may think they’ll die in under 5-10 yrs (so they are not a high priority for transplants… unless you are someone of high importance or very wealthy)
    why would they decide to give you surgery…

    when there is someone 40 yrs younger than you who has so much more life left to live… is also in the same position?

    hey before,,,, like with what cheney did, you could buy it …if you had the money… and decide your own treatments…. (that being between you and your doctor)
    ….but after 2014. that changes… the bureacrats will decide everything then (and they’re unlikely to even know you… or have any sympathy. …after a certain age, you do become what they call expendable losses. …man 0bamacare is gonna ruin healthcare most hospitals will cloaw down, doctors will leave their fields for other high paying jobs and healthcare industry will probably shutdown most of their businesses and move oversea’s. that’s where they will get more profit.

  • Amazed

    My (Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient) uncle turned 86 in intensive care after his major open-heart valve replacement and inter-chamber hole repair, and just turned 91. He takes NO medications at the age of 91, walks 2 miles a day, and is in great health. It’s none of the Government’s damn business how old they let him live. None at all. Not. one. bit.

  • democraps suck

    Fukk all demo turds and liberals…they all want a free hand out by the lib turds because they are too stupid to hold a job…fukk u libturds…it ends NOW

    Welcome to the medical fascism of Obamacare. Sick people who are not registered as being a party to the brave new world order agenda will have a very difficult time receiving board certified approval for their medical proceedures…..and if you wish to reproduce , you need to apply for a permit to conceive a child.

  • Benson II

    There is no age limit for a transplant patient. It isn’t the media’s or anybody else’s business who gets one.

    The only requirement is the patients consultation with his or her doctor and if so desired their family to determine the patients risk and reward of obtaining one.

    Medicine is supposed to be set up for exactly the opposite reason the left espouses. it’s to give care and prolong life for anyone who wants and is able to receive it regardless of political affiliation or age. It doesn’t matter if your 20 or 90 if you want the procedure and are able physically to receive it medicine should provide it. That cost, age and personality have even entered the picture shows how the left perverts and tries to destroy everything they touch.

    I heard NO DEMS complain or question when Ted Kennedy received his brand new, state of the art treatment for his brain tumor. Treatment that was not, at that time, available to ordinary citizens.

    Patty commented:

    I’m throwing a BS flag on this entire faux controversy.

    My grandmother was 82 when she was offered open-heart surgery for congestive heart failure. The surgery would have involved a lot of the same cutting as a transplant. That was a LOT of years ago, too, without the advantage of some of the very good, new techniques. The “doctor” that made that original remark was clearly not a practicing cardiac surgeon.

  • Fred

    They’re admitting that they exist! Good. Now the truth is out and everyone can see for themselves what a piece of garbage this really is!

  • BurmaShave

    Remember the way back in ’09 when the Liberal Socialists Apologist for ObamaCare were assuring everybody that politics would not play any role in its administration?

    They were lying of course. Fortunately everybody knew that they were lying. Really that is all they can do now-a-days. I bet their lawyers are engaged in lying to the Supreme court this very week.

  • Callie369

    Hey dumbocrats…..were you upset that DUMBOCRAT GOV. BOB CASEY (pa) received a heart-liver transplant TWO DAYS AFTER HE WAS DIAGNOSED? How did he jump to the top of the transplant list? He was in his sixties and lived less then 7 years after the transplant. That heart and liver could have saved TWO lives!!!!

    What a bunch of hypocrits!!!!

  • The democrat party has been taken over by communists. This democrat party with Obama at the head is exactly the Marxist who is trying to fulfill Nikita Kruschev’s prediction that the United States would be taken over by communism without firing a shot. Back in 1959 when he said it, we didn’t believe it, but it if we can’t get Obama out of office in November, I am afraid his prediction has a good chance of coming true. There will be a great deal of cheating this year.
    That’s why democrats don’t want voter I.D. It’s fine for us to need I.D. to do anything else in our lives but no voter I.D.? It’s obvious why.

  • The commie democrats are going to try to steal this election. Be aware and be vigilant at the poles. We have to watch the cheater party close this year. If they win it’s all but over for this great country.
