A tragedy

Drunk woman waving a sword

Drunk woman waving a sword

Seriously, we have advocated the use of swords in conflict resolution and personal defense for many years. We were finally making some progress. At long last the whole debate was making its way into the mainstream and getting the serious consideration it deserved.

Now, in one fell swoop, it’s been reduced, again, to the status of a crazy drunk woman waving her sword in public and threatening to “cut” people.

I weep for what we have lost.

Reagan on Compulsory Government Healthcare
Very impressive.
I’ve heard it argued that Reagan was talking about an early form of Medicare, which program has been implemented without all the terrible consequences he predicted coming to pass, you moron redneck conservative.
Well, no, actually. Reagan was talking about ‘compulsory’ or ‘government mandated’ health insurance. Medicare ain’t that. The version he was talking about may have been, but that version did not get passed and we don’t have it today. So stop throwing up straw men you whiny suet-filled pseudo-intellectual.
Of course, if ObamaCare passes, we will have it. The end of the world will soon follow.
