Obamacare : Civilizing our society

Lost in all the irrelevant chatter in the blogosphere and other non-accredited publications about the failures of the Obamacare “website” is an understanding of the larger picture. Is it wise to condemn a socially progressive forward thinking program because of minutiae like not being able to log on to a website. The real benefit of Obamacare is that it will finally bring a civilizing influence to the primitive dog-eat-dog society we live in.

Our wise leaders have wisely focused on the big picture and our dreams of unicorns and rainbows instead of getting caught up with low-level work like reading or writing the legislation. That is work more appropriate to the healthcare lobbyists that have their fingers on the pulse of our nation.

The main civilizing influence of Obamacare is to spread out costs in a fair manner that negates the disadvantages of what sex you were born with and whether you had pre-existing conditions. If you are a man, it’s time to suck it up and pay for medical care that you will never need such as maternity care, abortion and birth control pills. It was just pure luck that you were born that way and you must stop whining. Women must not be asked to pay more even though they use more health services. Get with the new form of feminism or get left behind and laughed at. If you’re libertarian, a piece of advice: Don’t ever mention your opinions in civilized conversation or if you’re trying to get laid.

If you are an insurance company, you have the privilege of operating in our great nation, so you must take $100 a month premiums and cover $1 million procedures. Don’t whine that insurance is meant to cover events that haven’t already occurred. Most Americans aren’t interested in your legal mumbo-jumbo. You can reduce your CEO’s salary by $1 million for every such deserving patient can’t you. Stop being greedy.

This brings me to Doctors : You with your Ferraris and multi-million dollar pay cheques. If the reports that you are cutting back on work and not participating in this great health experiment are true, I’m truly ashamed of you. You spent years in Medical school and racked up 100s of thousands of dollars of education expenses for the privilege of serving the needy. Their needs and wants are your calling to service. Shirking your duties is akin to treason and I can only hope that one day you are forced into mandatory labor or face the fate of other traitors like Bradley Manning.

We must all come together if we want to make this nation truly great. Pay your taxes. People far wiser than you have decided what the level of taxes should be. Trust in their judgement. You are part of this great society whether you like it or not. You must respect the will of the majority even if it takes away the most basic of your rights. This is the essence of the most sophisticated political system ever devised, Democracy. Abide by it’s rules or get branded, deservedly, as a right wing terrorist. The majority, educated in our world class public schools, have arrived at their conclusions unburdened by Logic, Math, History, Economics or Empirical analysis. Is this something you are capable of? It takes a special and I do mean special form of talent to arrive at thoughts and conclusions carefully constructed by optimism, hope, fear and an analysis of carefully curated content put out by high quality news networks like MSNBC, CNN and Fox News. Respect the will of the majority and let us move forward to a glorious future.

  1. I find this article far below the standards previously adhered to by the Accredited Times. Are you sure the writer actually possesses the required and necessary accreditations to pronounce on such matters?

    His condescending manner, which verges on hectoring, has no place in the civilized society that all right thinking readers want to bring about. Our goals are to establish a society that respects everyone and values everyone equally; his division of people into ancient and no longer necessary classes such as man and woman, rich and poor, or doctor and patient makes me suspect that he is some kind of innate “class-ist”, always ready to seek out and blame the other for the ills of society, when, as we all know, since we ALL are ‘society’, it’s ills are our ills, and the blame ascribes to us as well.

    I sincerely hope future articles will uphold the high standards of intelligence and subtlety established by the AT.

    • I concur; this author’s accreditation might need to be revoked. He made some good points that could have been articulated more precisely. It is important for white men to compensate all other groups for the privilege that society has bestowed upon them. This much is true. And, doctors need to get off their high horses and understand that if a walmart greeter is only making $8/hr for a 29 hour workweek, that SOMEONE has to pay for them to have luxury automobiles and big screen TVs, along with other basic needs…”Aybah poda hep.”

      Women use more services because of racism. Any discrepancy in society is racism. By white males against everyone else. This is something you can set your watch to and then break that watch so the hands can never move.

      A lot of increased HC costs are caused by “The Violence.” This spectre besieges underserved and underprivileged portions of our communities. It’s like a miasma, wafting from places unseen, and surrounding, plaguing, and besetting our “most vulnerable” with horrible situations. So, we must all band together to stop “The Violence.” We must march against The Violence. We should protest The Violence. If an airplane flies overhead we should make a dance in expectation of some kind of package falling out of it to stop The Violence. These things WORK. If everyone joins hands and prays and everything, The Violence can be made to stop terrorizing our least served and those with no “access” and “opportunity.”

      As far as people who say that Obama lied when he said you could keep your plan if you liked it, so what? Lies from well-meaning liberals are OK so long as they advance important liberal goals! And, those who worry about increased costs? SUCK IT UP RICH BOY. And don’t fret as we’ve imported something like 100k Somalis into the Twin Cities area alone, and they will be pitching in straight away to bring the upper Midwest living standards in conformance with the higher plane of diverse existence in Mogadishu. Diversity is about leveling things and diversity is known to level everything in its path.

        Lol that was top notch! God you are funny!

  2. You are truly doing the Lords work ….. defending the universal goal of equality …. especially when so many are giving up on the dream …. when people wish they had been born …. in Mogadishu …. we will know we have arrived at a socially just world !

  3. Notwithstanding all of the previous comments, it remains essential that the benefits of affordable universal healthcare are bestowed upon the most needy in the Collective – this means that the whities must pay for their less fortunate brethren: indeed it is their duty to provide reparations for the centuries of violence, slavery and exploitation that the whities have inflicted upon the other citizens of this nation, and, indeed, the world at large.

    Free health care and reproductive assistance is a natural, requisite and expected human right for all Y chromosome deficient members of the great Collective, and this arbitrary and deeply unfair division into “male” or “female” is deeply offensive to those comrades of the Collective who do not (or choose not to) identify with the sexual stereotypes perpetuated by the neo-conservative white male oligarchy.

    It is all about power, and Blessed Barack speaks truth to Power! This is truly a resounding game-changing policy, and the poor and dispossessed will finally be vindicated by having the health care they truly deserve.

  4. I don’t mean to be rude, but rich old white men need to think about people other than themselves for just once and realise that not everyone was born a rich old white man!

    People of colour and wimmin have all – personally! – suffered centuries of deprivation and servitude to rich old white men, so the least any individual old white man can do is give something back by paying HIS taxes and doing his part to level our society.

    I wish libertarians would stop trying to impose THEIR version of society on everybody else! The rest of us just want to be left alone to tax and spend as the MAJORITY see fit! We’re a DEMOCRACY, aren’t we???

    • Greedy capitalist doctors …. should live in their cars …. so they can relate better …. with their poor patients …. they could park behind their clinics …. and be available 24/7 …. for emergencies !
