    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.)

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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).

    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.
