Facebook MORANS (healthcare from smoking Prez, obese S.G., country broke, etc)
Edited on Wed Mar-24-10 04:35 PM by Maru Kitteh
I've had this pop up from two brainwashed family members:

"They passed a health care plan written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke. What could possibly go wrong?"

---------------------------

Yeah, yeah - it's unoriginal, it's from a right-wing email and maybe I shouldn't bother. But I want to.

Has anyone seen a; 1.) short, 2.) snarky, 3.) reality-based response to this particular bit of garbage? I so want to hand one of them her ass on a platter.

2. Ask them to 1) provide links to all assertions (they won't), and 2) ask them
for a link to the rethug health care plan (they can't). That might shut them up.

8. That's so very true!
All my redneck dumbass cousins fail to provide any proof... except snippets of Rush or Beck... and then they get all pissy when I tell them that Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum don't count as proof of anything other than human stupidity in its most disgusting form.

3. I've seen that
I usually respond with something about what this bill does do (help seniors with free preventative care & closing the donut hole so they don't have to choose between food & medicine, keeping insurance companies from dumping you when you get sick, etc) & then end with "but I know you have the right to be selfish & oppose these needed reforms."

5. That might be a nice tact to take. My mom paid 3K for Heparin last year
Silly her, having that expensive stroke and all.

9. What? Your mom's too lazy to work?
:sarcasm:

I actually saw someone post that she's going to start tanning so she doesn't have to pay extra taxes because she's white. :wow: :grr:

6. Yes, tell them that Larry the Cable guy supports this bill because his
sister will finally be able to get all those warts burned off and cure his grandmothers walking farts.

Then say, Lord please forgive me for that and bless all the starving Pygmies in New Guinea.

The stupid there is just too gawdawful big. Send their emails to the Junk mail folder.

10. Remind them that
Congress has exempted themselves from it because they already get free healthcare paid for by the American people.
