Rationed Health Care - If It Was a Snake, It Would’ve Bit You
Growing up, there were numerous occasions when searching for some item, which invariably was right under my nose, hollering “Hey, Mum, have you seen my…,?” whatever it was I was searching for, my Mum would pluck up the item I was searching for, right from under my nose and state, “If it was a snake, it would’ve bit you.”
I think that the above anecdote is an appropriate opening to dismissing the official State line that if the State legislates health care there will be no rationing of health care.
In illustration of my hypothesis, and in support of my anecdote, I point you to a story in regards to the swine or H1N1 vaccine titled Some who get vaccine not in high-risk groups from which the following quote is lifted.
“We really are hoping people go on the honor system and let us immunize people in the priority groups,” Southern Nevada Health District spokeswoman Stephanie Bethel said. “I think, for the most part, it’s working.”...“We assertively asked those who were not in the priority group to move to the end of the line, so when we ran out of vaccine, those people who were left were those who were not at risk,” said health officer Dr. Gary Oxman.
Can you honestly and rationally convince yourself, knowing with certainty that a medical resource as simple as a vaccine is being rationed (prioritized) by the State, right now, that if the State fully controls health care that your personal needs for medical care will not be compromised?
The evidence of the folly of State legislated health care is right there in front of your nose, if it was a snake, it would bite you.

A Stolen Thought on Loving Mankind
As a matter of fact, the person who loves everybody and feels at home everywhere is the true hater of mankind. He expects nothing of men, so no form of depravity can outrage him.”
Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead, The Bobbs-Merrill Company, Inc., 1943, pg. 477

Futilely Shooting Sparrows in My Backyard
I have not posted much here, these past fews months, not because I am incapacitated, nor inured to the continued decline of America, but because I am painfully cognizant of the futility of shooting sparrows.
You see I shoot every sparrow I possibly can when they frequent my backyard, which is often. I poke my old Daisy BB gun out the kitchen window and pop them, one by one, futilely. I can eliminate a dozen or more, in a single day, and yet flocks of these flying vermin still plague my feeders. Oh, they’ve become more cautious, scattering to neighbors’ trees twittering in alarm as I attempt to cautiously raise the kitchen window to poke the Daisy out for a shot, yet they continuously return, driving the native birds away with their piggish numbers. They are like flies on a decomposing corpse.
Which brings me to why I have not posted much here since August.
I have not posted much here because attempting to rationally critcize, ridicule, or brow beat the professional jobholders and socialist idealists destroying America is as futile as shooting sparrows in my backyard. No matter how rationally or soundly my words may slash one particular professional jobholder, or “socially progressive” program, the effort is futile, as there is always another fool ready and willing to pick up the guidon for the cause of “social progression.”
It is not the professional jobholders, or their heralds, who are to blame for this, though. The blame rests with the masses. The masses, which allegedly consists of individuals, in reality consists of mere rote creatures slavering to be fed and kept like animals in a zoo. Sure, the masses are humans, but they are helpless, ignorant creatures in actuality. Masses of malleable clay, beggared, envious, and ecstatically voting for the whip and chains for all. The professional jobholders and social idealists are mere opportunists and promisers of utopia, fattening on the desires of the animals which are the masses. They are sparrow like vermin who do not even deserve a BB.
What words will I add to these pages in the future? I am currently uncertain, due to the futility of shooting sparrows.

People Will Believe Anything
Remember the heralding of the found “missing link,” back in May 2009, with teevee specials, books and what not, which I said was all marketing, and which many people so naively embraced with evolutionary fervor, much like politicians’ promises? Well, the “missing link” is not even a link.
Remember Ida, the fossil discovery announced last May with its own book and TV documentary? A publicity blitz called it “the link” that would reveal the earliest evolutionary roots of monkeys, apes and humans.
Experts protested that Ida wasn’t even a close relative. And now a new analysis supports their reaction.
In fact, Ida is as far removed from the monkey-ape-human ancestry as a primate could be, says Erik Seiffert of Stony Brook University in New York.
