2. In "Incrementalism on the March." The artists should have added the surgeon making a statement

that, "Because of Obamacare, we are allowed to only remove every other bullet" or some such shite as that. My brother was recently in the hospital seriously ill, and every time we questioned the doctors or nurses about something, they blamed it on Obamacare. They are doing the PR groundwork to get people opposed to it! We will need COMPLETE CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM (CCFR) to get our representative government back. Please join me in calling for CCFR in every post! It is the end game if we want our government to be ours again! Thanks, now who is with me?

5. The doctors and nurses are totally

full of crap. If this happens again, do your best to force them to be specific. They won't be able to. What they'll actually be referencing, I'm totally convinced, is the limitations the insurance companies place on what can be treated or what can be paid for.

Despite what has been said, there is simply no evidence that doctors have gotten out of doctoring because of Obamacare, or even Romneycare, which is what the former used as a model.

Every so often I hear the claim that if Obamacare is fully implemented doctors will leave the profession. Really? And what will they do then? Run a cash register at WalMart? Become a plumber? Go to work for the Post Office? Really?

3. A rather comical story in history.


I'm reminded by the first cartoon: Historian John Davies in his book Europe gave a lesser-known story about a historical figure, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungry. This is a guy who's better known for dying: his assassination sparked World War I.

Machine guns were new in the late 19th early 20th century. Archduke Ferdinand liked to hunt animals with a mounted gun. He would have his servants run the animals out in the open so he could mow them down. It's rumored that he single-handedly caused the extinction of a species of European deer.

Therefore, the first cartoon has some truth.

6. The psychological aspects of always being "ready for them"...

...is well done too.

The real reason I am against a civilian arms race is because I do not want to live in a militarized society. I do not want children to live in fear with a siege mentality.
