  •  You put the patient in the center (19+ / 0-)

    surrounded by hungry sharks, circling ever closer to nibble away at the patient, soon followed by large greedy bites.

    People currently running a circular firing squad tend to think this way.

    There's no such thing as a Free Information Kit. There is, however, advertising.

      I'm living in America, and in America you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business.

      "just when you thought it was safe to go back to the doctor..."

      Bullseye, GrafZeppelin. There can be no other reading of this than "health care is too good for you (and you know who you are.)  Behave and you might get a little bit, someday".
       The black heart of every ideological stance of this increasingly devolving political party is division and cruelty.
      None of the modern gop 'visions' for America include rising up in any way. They cheer the death of the space program, plummeting college graduation rates, and the American Dream while fomenting the most overt racism and sexism seen on the public stage in decades. They actively seek to cut access to democracy and the society at large to more and more parts of the population, they hobble science, technology, and progress of all kinds.
      It's bullying, when stripped of its increasingly negligible trappings. All of their paper mache arguments need to be deconstructed as concisely as this one.
