The Wonderfulness of Government run Health care

When ObamaCare fails, and it will, the Jackass Party hopes to be in power to bring Single Payer Health Care (SPHC) to America. For a taste of this nightmare, just look at the UK.

NHS provokes fury with indefinite surgery ban for smokers and obese

The NHS will ban patients from surgery indefinitely unless they lose weight or quit smoking, under controversial plans drawn up in Hertfordshire.

The restrictions – thought to be the most extreme yet to be introduced by health services – immediately came under attack from the Royal College of Surgeons.

Its vice president called for an “urgent rethink” of policies which he said were “discriminatory” and went against the fundamental principles of the NHS.

In recent years, a number of areas have introduced delays for such patients – with some told operations will be put back for months, during which time they are expected to try to lose weight or stop smoking.

But the new rules, drawn up by clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in Hertfordshire, say that obese patients “will not get non-urgent surgery until they reduce their weight” at all, unless the circumstances are exceptional.

The criteria also mean smokers will only be referred for operations if they have stopped smoking for at least eight weeks, with such patients breathalysed before referral.

East and North Hertfordshire CCG and Herts Valleys said the plans aimed to encourage people “to take more responsibility for their own health and wellbeing, wherever possible, freeing up limited NHS resources for priority treatment”.

Here’s an image of any socialized program.

Both are in financial difficulty, and between them seeking to save £68m during this financial year.

Ian Eardley, senior vice president of the Royal College of Surgeons, said it was wrong to bar NHS treatment to any group of patients.

“Singling out patients in this way goes against the principles of the NHS,” he said.

“This goes against clinical guidance and leaves patients waiting long periods of time in pain and discomfort. It can even lead to worse outcomes following surgery in some cases,” he said.

“There is simply no justification for these policies, and we urge all clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to urgently reverse these discriminatory measures.”

The senior surgeon said he was concerned that the latest rules were the “tip of the iceberg”. [snip]

You can translate the above anyway you like but the bottom line comes out the same: Insufficient funds to run the system. Like all socialized programs, projections are never met by the realities of the costs. Someone always has to pay a price for the sugar coated sales pitch.

Cognitive dissonance

These late night bloviators want to make jokes about current events, but when the event fouls their nest, well not so much is it humorous.

Kimmel had much to say as the Pope of America’s probity on ObamaCare, gun control and the President. Now the scandalous and possible criminal actions of Weinstein, Kimmel claims a “no license” to engage in making comment abut someone else’s behavior.

Kimmel on Lack of Weinstein Jokes: Look, I’m Not the Country’s Moral Conscience, Okay?

Well, you could have fooled us, Jim.  It really seemed like you were supremely comfortable with serving as the country’s self-appointed moral conscience as you agitated against Obamacare repeal (having admitted to never meeting any of the millions who’ve been harmed by the law) by literally reading Democratic talking points — all to great media acclaim.  And you appeared mighty fine with scolding Republicans on gun control, smearing Second Amendment advocates as somehow complicit in the Las Vegas massacre.  Given this sobering, complicating reality check from Dianne Feinstein, I was half expecting you to primary her from the left out there in California.  But what’s this?  Are you suddenly surrendering your mantle as High Priest of Moral Rectitude and Wokeness all because you’re hesitant to go nuclear on your buddy whose grubby fingerprints are all over the industry in which you make your lavish living (and also unwilling women’s bodies)?

Kimmel had to be dragged, kicking and screaming into targeting Weinstein by Donald Trump, Jr. — following two full shows of silence.  Why is this professional comedian (and others) still soft-pedaling the topic?  Is there no ridicule-worthy content in a man whose employment contract basically allowed for sexual harassment, so long as he paid fines to the board, whose members are now feigning terrible shock over his long history predatory abuses?  And who’s reportedly planning to challenge his termination as wrongful?  Nothing to skewer here, amirite, Jimmer?

Biased Agendas

Certified Loonies

In the lives of the Loony Left, when one isn’t busy out hugging poison ivy, there has to be some other other misfiring in the cerebral cortex. In this case, it is the desire to give water molecules human rights. All of them we guess since there are no distinguishing marks to separate one from another.

Environmentalists sue to give river human rights

An environmental group is filing the first lawsuit of its kind on Sept. 26 in the U.S., attempting to force the state of Colorado to recognize the “legal rights” of the Colorado River and the surrounding ecosystem.

Activist organization Deep Green Resistance (DGR) has signed on as the river’s “next friends” in Colorado River v. State of Colorado. The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) is a legal adviser in the case, according to a CELDF press release.

“This action … comes as courts around the world are beginning to hold that nature and ecosystems possess legally enforceable rights,” CELDF’s International Center for the Rights of Nature Director Mari Margil said in a press release from Sept. 21.

“Building on ongoing lawmaking efforts, we believe that this lawsuit will be the first of many which begins to change the status of nature under our legal systems,” Margil added.

DGR is committed to stopping “industrial civilization from burning fossil fuels.” The organization wants society to revert to a “sustainable” culture without the modern form of civilization fueled by limited resources.

“Life on Earth is more important than this insane, temporary culture based on hyper-exploitation of finite resources. This culture needs to be destroyed before it consumes all life on this planet,” the group’s website says. “Humanity is not the same as civilization. Humans have developed many sane and sustainable cultures, themselves at risk from civilization.”

Out of curiosity, did all the water molecules sign on to this class action lawsuit? Did any agree to be represented in court; if not where is the standing in court for these LOONS.
Don’t we have enough serious problems ongoing in the country with the likes of Kasich, the NFL, Pelosi’s brain cramps and the bat crazy Mayor of San Juan?
Toss the suit and make the fools pay all court costs for all involved.

Idiot’s Corner

Teardrops falling like rain… now since Weiner has to face some serious time. This critter is a disgrace but typical of the Donkey Party; remorse only after they get caught.

Anthony Weiner gets hard time

Anthony Weiner got a stiff dose of reality Monday as a judge slapped him with a nearly two-year sentence for sexting with a 15-year-old girl — a heinous crime that cost him both his marriage and his freedom.

Manhattan federal Judge Denise Cote rejected defense pleas to spare Weiner any time behind bars and instead ordered him to spend 21 months in a federal penitentiary, saying she needed to make an example of the high-profile pervert.

Weiner, who had faced up to ten years in prison, hung his head in shame, covered his face and cried silently into his hands.

 He broke down a second time at the end of the hearing, as his lawyers tried to comfort him by patting his back. His mom, Frances, wept in the gallery, where she sat with Weiner’s dad, Morton, and his brother, Jason.

Weiner didn’t stop crying until after court officers had cleared the room.

Weiner, 53, had begged the judge for probation so he could continue recovering from his longtime sex addiction and “be a good father to my son.”

The serial sexter struggled with his emotions as soon as he started reading a prepared statement in which he described reaching a new low by getting involved online with the underage North Carolina teen.

According to the feds, Weiner sent her “adult pornography” and repeatedly convinced her to strip naked and fondle herself while he watched via Skype and Snapchat in February and March 2016. [snip]

“I was a very sick man for a very long time, but I’m also responsible for the damage I have done. Your Honor, I have a disease, but I have no excuse.”

Weiner said he was “profoundly sorry to the victim” and obliquely referenced the previous sexting scandals that forced him from Congress in 2011 and torpedoed his 2013 comeback bid for New York City mayor. [snip]

Since when is being a pervert a disease?
Right after being a drunk became a disease.
Yup, the disease of victimhood, this allows one to wander the streets in sackcloth and ashes beating you head with a board while wailing “I’m a victim, help me.”

Next he’ll want a trophy for confessing.

Doing the jobs Americans won’t do

How often have the Liberals offered up this as a reason why America needs open borders and unfettered immigration. Is this one of those jobs you, as an American, won’t take?

Two Illegal Aliens Raped a 14-Year-Old Girl In a Maryland High School Bathroom

Two illegal aliens raped a 14-year-old girl in the bathroom of a D.C.-area high school last Thursday, just months after arriving in the country unlawfully and enrolling in classes.

Blood pressure high, yet? There’s more.

According to the Washington Times, 18-year-old Henry Sanchez and 17-year-old Jose Montano lured the girl into the bathroom and asked her for sex. When she refused, the boys took turns holding the girl down and sexually assaulting her in the bathroom of Rockville High School, located in Montgomery County, Maryland, just a few miles outside of Washington, D.C. and the nation’s immigration headquarters.

After finally escaping the bathroom, the girl immediately reported the incident to a faculty member. Both guys were arrested at the school that same day and charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offenses. Montano, technically still a minor, is being charged as an adult.

In a report following their first hearing on Friday, the Washington Post stated that the Guatemalan-born Sanchez has only been in the country about seven months, and is the subject of a pending “alien removal” case.

 The Post noted that immigration officials refused to disclose Montano’s immigration status because he’s a minor; however, he came into the country from El Salvador only about eight months ago. You can connect the dots.

Here’s the real kicker – both of these guys, at 17 and 18 years old, were placed in the ninth grade after arriving in the United States — also known as the grade most 14-year-olds are enrolled in.

According to the Office of Refugee Resettlement, more than 153,000 illegal alien kids have been released to “sponsors” living in the United States since the start of FY2014. Of those, 3,286 were placed in Montgomery County.

Fortunately, Judge Eugene Wolfe refused to grant bond to these guys last Friday, and the two rapists will remain in prison until their trial.

Unfortunately, this young girl gets to live the rest of her life with the memory of being raped in the bathroom stall of a government-funded building by two guys who shouldn’t have even been here.

This is going to be very confusing.
In which bathroom did this assault take place? Were these unisex bathrooms? Or did the males suddenly undergo instant gender identification conversion allowing entrance to the female bathroom. Because of this ID mixup, was this considered a lesbian encounter?

In Progressive States (MD is one), a form either affirming or denying consent is usually required.
Is she racially discriminating against these males because of origin? If the assailants were white, would she have objected to the advances? Has she exhibited racial bias in the past?

If you dear readers, think I’m bulls#!ting with these questions, wait until you hear what the defense lawyers bring up in court. If the lawyers can shop the court for a liberal judge (in that area, a good chance of getting one) that trial will become a circus for the immigration agenda and every kinky educational idea the Left wants to insert in the schools.
She’ll be sacrificed for the greater advancement of the Progressive agenda.
