An Ocean of Haterade

If you follow the TPM Media web site, you will have seen the racist picture attributed to conservative activists.

It seems that the originator of this post is a physician who is a member of the Doctors for Patient Freedom group.

Not that I have followed this whole health care debate that closely... been busy working to pay those doctor bills.

Just kidding...

But it is hard understanding what all the fuss is about.

On my first trip to the U.K., my buddy broke his ankle playing ball with the local kids. Got it patched up with a bottle of painkillers for free.

What’s wrong with that?

I guess what is wrong is that being compelled to treat a sick person for free -- or for less money than one might expect to receive -- threatens profit margins.

Of course, medical professionals should earn a good living and have the means to support themselves.

The question is... are the ideas of providing affordable health care and of the medical industry being profitable two diametrically opposed concepts?

One thing that we find very interesting that the far-right... the group so angrily opposed to helping those who can't help themselves claims to be all about Bible-based Christianity...

And what was it that Jesus did most of all?

And Jesus never asked for an insurance card before healing someone. Hmm...
