This sounds like Gestapo controlled Germany...

Here is a video of President Obama dating from 2003:



Here is the response from the White House when the video emerged on Drudge Report:



Now if you go to the official website you can read the following:

" There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov."

Does that sound good to you?

It definitely has a feel of "gestapoishness" to me...

Why is this administration so afraid of debate?

Why do I feel like this absolutely threatens my 1st amendment right?

Why are they trying to ridicule anyone who brings up a valid question?


I know socialized medicine...
Remember; I'm from Canada!
Ask me about my grandma's latest adventure in the hospital...
Let's just say that an American hospital would get sued big time if they treated anyone the way she was treated...


What do you think?

yowza. Today on facebook my friend said "Obama's willing to converse with foreign dictators and yet he's too afraid to listen to the American people. Yeah, yeah, much better to just call us angry mobs- way to be a leader Mr. President." I have to agree.

Je ne veux pas partir de controverse, surtout sur un blog qui est clairement républicain, mais je crois qu'il y a un sérieux problême en ce moment aux États-Unis lorsque vient le temps de parler de la réforme du systèeme de santé. Je te conseille de lire les 3 articles suivant de Richard Hétu et de suivres les liens pour voir un autre coté de la médaille:

J'aime surtout le troisième vidéo du premier lien.
Qu'est-ce qui se passe aux États-Unis? L'aile extreme droite du GOP a-t-elle perdue la tête?

En passant, la réforme proposé par les Démocrates n'est pas identique au système canadiens d'assurance-maladie.

En passant Maude, j'aime bien lire ton blog ... ça me donne une autre vision que celle de gauche de Richard Hétu sur les Américains.

Bonne semaine.
