AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

To Obama, We are Not People, but Simply Commodities

This should have been evident to anyone who researched Obama’s position on abortion and found out that he adamantly supported infanticide as an IL State legislator and considered a pregnant teenager to be “punished with a baby“.

Obama has studied his entire political career under Marxists and Marxism. Therefore, he does not see Americans as people, but simply commodities to be used, however he sees fit, for his benefit.

Via James Lewis at The American Thinker: Death Care and the Commodification of Life

An excerpt:

Federal “healthcare” must inevitably turn into “Death Care,” because the bureaucracy will have the sole power to determine the rules under which you and I will live and die. The bureaucrats will have a fixed pot of money, and money spent to save your life comes from the same kitty that is used to give prenatal care to some poor woman from Mexico or Bangladesh. That is what they think is moral — and this is an argument about morality above all. Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, Rahm’s brother and big advisor to Obama, considers fee-for-service medicine immoral, because it allows richer people to pay more.

There are all kinds of economic arguments against that position, but that’s what they believe. It assumes, of course, that there is only one lock-box of money, which cannot expand, and which cannot become more efficiently used as we discover new medications. It assumes that costlier medical care today will not pay off in cheaper medicines tomorrow; but that is the whole history of modern medicine. Poor people are benefiting today from the costlier treatments purchased by others yesterday, just as our cheap netbook computers today came out of five decades of developing huge, very expensive, slower, and clunkier computers. Your aspirin pill today costs pennies. The equivalent of willow bark a hundred years ago was much more expensive.

The Socialist commodification of life turns the entire Western tradition of the infinite value of life upside-down. Prime Minister Gordon Brown of Britain takes great pride in insisting on the right the State has to take your organs immediately after you die, without your consent, to make sure your heart and liver stay nice and fresh to be put into another person’s body, for whatever mileage they have left. It is the ultimate commodification of life. But Brown thinks that is the only moral position.

In a way that is difficult to specify, every life is infinitely precious. That is what it means to love someone, and to be loved. …

When my father died I fought his passing every step of the way. I was never willing to let him go, and I wanted him to know that. It was the last gesture of love between us. He is infinitely precious to me, and I suppose I was to him. That bond is not reflected in ObamaCare, and cannot be. Obama grew up without a father, being passed from one family and place to the next, and ObamaCare may reflect his commodified view of life. For Obama, people are economic objects.

In the Western tradition the soul has always been treated as immortal and infinitely precious. That is a core concept in our religious traditions, and even in secular philosophy like Plato’s and Kant’s. But when we come to Marxist materialism, a human being becomes just another loaf of bread: A commodity.

All this bears very directly on Obama’s Blitzkrieg to control American medicine. Whether Sarah Palin’s death panels will convene this year or in ten years doesn’t matter at all. Palin is correct in that at some point her little son Trig with Down Syndrome will become commodified.

Proof Positive Obama and Democrats are LYING to America about Single Payer Health Care

Found via Ace of Spades HQ: Look at All These Liberals, Obama Supporters, and Obama Chiefs-of-Staff Being Quoted Out of Context

They all seem in agreement that the plan is for the government option to “evolve” into single payer. Rahm Emmanuel is caught saying this, too — stating the important thing is the “objective (single payer) not the means (government option).” …

They all agreed this was a pathway to single payer when selling it to liberals.

Why is it they all claim it’s nothing of the sort now that they’re selling it to moderates?

Because they are LIARS!

Proof Positive the Public Option Will Lead to Single Payer

“President Obama has said repeatedly that those who claim that healthcare reform will ultimately lead to a government take-over of the health system are not telling the truth. So are these Democrat supporters of the President’s plan not telling the truth?”

Mass Media Not Reporting on Hundreds of President=Hitler Protest Signs

This is simply outrageous and unforgivable. These people should be ashamed of themselves, comparing their President to Hitler. Thank goodness Nancy Pelosi called attention to these nutjob lunatics. Unfortunately, the mass media is still not doing their job in getting these disgusting images out to the American public to show the true colors of the opposition to the President.

Thankfully, Ringo’s Pictures shows us what the mass media continues to hide from us: A Trip Down Memory Hole Lane

And if that were not enough, here is more: …Hitler, Swastika-Mania: A Retrospective

Simply despicable how people can treat their President in this way, huh? And simply atrocious how the mass media can continue to cover up this obvious despicable insult to our dear, beloved President.

Wow, and now I read that the mass media is not reporting on numerous death threats against the President at protests? Despicable. Simply despicable.

Obama to Fellow Left-Wing Radicals: “Brook No Compromise”

Well, gee, who could have guessed that Obama — having his entire political background full of Marxists, Communists, Socialists, Racists, Black Liberation Theologists and left-wing radicals — was not really a moderate and for two years was lying his jugears off and full of bullchit on the campaign trail?  Apparently, for 69+ million Americans, this was simply beyond their brain capacity to figure out.

Via Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit: Flashback: At Daily Kos Hate Website, Obama Told Far Left to “Brook No Compromise” On Progressive Agenda

At the Far Left anti-Semitic Daily Kos website, Barack Obama told moonbats to pretend to be less radical to further the progressive cause.

Via Sweetness and Light:

I thought this might be a good opportunity to offer some thoughts about not only judicial confirmations, but how to bring about meaningful change in this country.

Maybe some of you believe I could have made my general point more artfully, but it’s precisely because many of these groups are friends and supporters that I felt it necessary to speak my mind.

There is one way, over the long haul, to guarantee the appointment of judges that are sensitive to issues of social justice, and that is to win the right to appoint them by recapturing the presidency and the Senate. And I don’t believe we get there by vilifying good allies, with a lifetime record of battling for progressive causes, over one vote or position. I am convinced that, our mutual frustrations and strongly-held beliefs notwithstanding, the strategy driving much of Democratic advocacy, and the tone of much of our rhetoric, is an impediment to creating a workable progressive majority in this country.

According to the storyline that drives many advocacy groups and Democratic activists – a storyline often reflected in comments on this blog – we are up against a sharply partisan, radically conservative, take-no-prisoners Republican party. They have beaten us twice by energizing their base with red meat rhetoric and single-minded devotion and discipline to their agenda. In order to beat them, it is necessary for Democrats to get some backbone, give as good as they get, brook no compromise, drive out Democrats who are interested in “appeasing” the right wing, and enforce a more clearly progressive agenda.

The country, finally knowing what we stand for and seeing a sharp contrast, will rally to our side and thereby usher in a new progressive era.

Read the whole thing. Clearly, Obama is no moderate.

And, clearly he told us back then what to expect from his presidency.
