The Current AMA is Not the AMA of the Past
Good comment at this post at Ace of Spades HQ which explains why the American Medical Association (AMA) bended over and grabbed their ankles for Obama’s craptacular Obamacare proposal recently:
Well I actually learned something new from Fox this morning while eating breakfast. They were discussing the obvious disconnect on why the AMA is jumping on the Obamacare train and supporting the “reform”.
First, they put a past AMA president on and discussed it with him. He opposed it for various reasons, most notably the lack of tort reform. He said that the current AMA was wrong on this bill.
Then they brought on one of their “lawyer-news babes” who said the current AMA is not the AMA of the past. She said that only 20% of doctors now belong to the AMA and that they are mostly students and interns. The “gist” of this is that the AMA is no longer a doctor organization.
So bottom line; we have been saying here that the AMA was “bought off” in some way or another. What has happened is that the real doctors have dropped out, the organization has become another liberal Democrap advocacy group like the AARP and they really don’t give a sh*t about the “doctors” they are supposed to represent.

I recently went off on an angry rant on an earlier comment thread at Ace of Spades HQ about just this issue of the AMA cowtowing to Obama. This helps explain my inquiries about the AMA, however it doesn’t alleviate my anger and frustration about the issue:
“Elmendorf doesn’t seem too intimidated by The Won. He seems like his integrity means something to him. How refreshing.”
I was just having this conversation with a friend last night. Someone smarter than me needs to explain how it is that we have, what, 535 Congressmen, 100 Senators and say 100 Executive branch minions, YET, 300+ Million American citizens — including hundreds of leaders in economics, energy, business, healthcare and law enforcement, among many other things — seem to just bend over and grab the ankles with regards to government officials, who have to be among the dumbest and most ignorant people in this nation on things that really matter (namely economics and business).
Why is that?
Why is it, for instance, that the AMA comes out criticizing Obamacare for the BS that it is, then has a meeting with Obama, and BINGOBANGO they flip — against all common sense and logic — to support the same BS they called out as BS the day before?
What the F*** is wrong with these people???
We are seeing the exact *opposite* of what happened under the Bush Administration. For the previous 8 years, everyone and their mother did nothing by blame Bush for every god forsaken thing on the planet, smeared him, lied about him, lied about and smeared every single one of his policies and even attacked him personally — nevermind if any of it was justified or not. Hell, Bush could have found the cure for cancer and the press and all the BDSers would spin it as a negative.
Now, though, we have the exact opposite. Not only are people praising Obama left and right, praising his policies and spinning everything left and right as positive, but they seem downright afraid of even criticizing him at all or calling him out on any anything at all.
The a-hole could say 2+2=5 on national television, then have the National Federation of Math Geniuses call him out on his stupidity, to which he would then invite them to the White House for a meeting, after which the National Federation of Math Geniuses would hold a press conference and say that, yes, indeed, Obama was right, 2+2 does in fact = 5.
Someone explain to me what the F*** people are so gawddamned afraid of about standing up to this racist, Marxist, incompetent piece of utter crap and his Marxist minions? The a-hole and his minions do NOT hold that much power.
There are 300 f***ing million of us Americans against less than 1000 of them. Why the f*** are people, especially those in positions of influence, afraid of challenging this fraud and taking him down???
