What would you think about a scholarly article entitled: "What Are the Potential Cost Savings from Legalizing Physician-Assisted Suicide?"
This is the title of a 1998 paper co-authored by Ezekiel Emanuel, a leading adviser to Budget Director Peter Orszag and a member of President Obama's elite 15-person Federal Coordinating Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research. The Council is charged by the Obama administration with preparing the list of which medical procedures will henceforth be permitted, and which not, with an eye to cutting $2 trillion from health care payments-to be handed over to the bankrupt hedge funds and banks which run the HMOs.
And don't forget that, among the means identified at Nuremberg as causing the "murder and ill-treatment of Civilian Populations" was the "inadequate provision of surgical and medical services" - exactly the policies being imposed on the U.S. today by Summers, Geithner, Orszag, and their British masters.
As Lyndon LaRouche stated unequivocally yesterday: "The Hitler program has been revived by the Obama administration."
"Don't accept any discussion or dialogue on Social Security and such issues," LaRouche advised. "First we have to reduce the costly mismanagement of health care by these insurance companies, by eliminating the HMOs. This will eliminate the biggest factor of waste in the health care system.
"The HMOs just took over and replaced Hill-Burton. There's no way of compromising on that; you have to be absolutely ruthless. The HMO is a parasite; there's no question about it. This is all criminal, and we have to deal with it as a crime.
"The point is people get hesitant, and they say: 'In the meantime, what are we going to do?' In the meantime? There is no meantime! Either we get these guys out now, or there's no chance: mass death occurs. That's what happened with Hitler. There were Jewish communities that also said: 'Look, don't fight it, it will go away.' It's the same thing today."

"Conclusions In this survey, a small proportion of terminally ill patients seriously considered euthanasia or PAS for themselves. Over a few months, half the patients changed their minds. Patients with depressive symptoms were more likely to change their minds about desiring euthanasia or PAS."
His CONCLUSION is that half the patients changed their minds because they had not been mentally OK to make the decision in the first place - - that is NOT an endorsement of physician assisted suicide.
But, OK, I'll crawl on the floor with you and try on a tin foil hat for a moment and quote your Dear Leader Larouche DIRECTLY (instead of going second-hand and quoting a MORE deranged Larouche DISCIPLE):
[Here's what he grudgingly mumbled and buried amonst the hyperbolic imaginings in his article]
".....The authors proceed to coldly dissect the financial benefits to be derived from killing patients "with their consent." No opinion is ventured as to whether such killing, or the cost-benefit discussion of it, is right or wrong.......
.......(In a 1997 New York Times Op-ed, Emanuel had opposed physician assisted suicide and proposed instead, not to prolong life, but to "make it easier for doctors to prescribe narcotics [for] people in pain .... to use the power of medicine to improve the final days of the terminally ill.")".
By the way, if you can't tell the difference between suicide (which, btw, Emanuel has clearly opposed) and governmental proscribed euthanasia (which he even more vehemently opposes and is HOMICIDE), than you clearly meet the "low-bar" requirement for the infamous 20% of our population that keep showing up proudly in all those polls.
"They (Patriots) may be the greatest team ever" - Chris Mortenson, January 18, 2005 on espn.com
The difference between you and I is that I am a skeptic, and work really hard on not falling for every conspiracy theory for either a left of right wing blog.. facts are a good thing.
You rely on perception and I try for the facts.. just the facts, no hysteria or hyperbole.
You apparently ignore some facts:
1-1.8 T in debt. Obama did it in his first 100 days and it's getting bigger. We aren't getting any better.
2-You criticized Bush's 'cash for trash' stimulus program last year. Guess what? Obama is using it.
3-Unemployment rate is skyrocketing and house foreclosure is out of control.
4- Obama said X during his campaign and does Y when he is in office. Does he know what he's doing?
5-Obama REFUSED to show everybody his REAL BC. Nobody knew who the hell Obama was.
Somehow, you fell in love with 'Obama'. Can you explain it to everybody? I love it when you lefty group uses 'fact' for your reasoning when it's full of balony.
