Having read the entire Obamacare bill more than one time, and finding
myself offended and pissed off at much of it, I can honestly say that the
portions that upset me the most were the sections about what is commonly
referred to as the "death panels". Anyone over 65, healthy or otherwise, having
to have that crap rammed down their throats annually, in my opinion, was
outrageous. I truly felt that rather healthy seniors might succumb to the
intended Pavlovian effect and that not only frightened me, it angered me.
This, my dear friends, is a wonderful headline !!!!!
