Occasionally, when I want to go into a fit of blind rage, I'll still listen to the bloviating gasbags of wingnut radio. It elevates my heartrate and blood pressure without any of that pesky time consuming exercise, and I can flex the muscles of my fist without getting one of those stupid rubber balls.
Anyway, my latest foray found a theme which I find to be a disingenuous piece of shit, so I have a challenge for wingers like Michael Medved and Rush Limbaugh, as well as sociopathic assholes like Joe and Hadassah Lieberman.
It is a simple challenge, really -
Voluntarily Forego Preventive Care
Propagandists (the likes of which would make Joe Goebbels proud, particularly that asshole Medved) keep telling us that preventive care is expensive and statistically unnecessary. They repeat that, over and over.
Thing is, I want them to put their money where their mouths are. No more preventive care.
That means that Joe doesn't go in for checkups, PSA tests for prostate cancer, colonoscopies or sigmoidoscopes. Rush doesn't get to go in for stress tests. Hadassah doesn't go in for mammograms or pap smears. Michael doesn't get his skin checked for suspicious spots.
Live the life you're consigning the rest of us to - prove your point with your own bodies.
Somehow, I doubt we'll see that much integrity out of these mendacious, sanctimonious windbags.
And Howard - right now, I'll take half the loaf.
