Meanwhile, Bill Orally grills Miss New Jersey on those infamous photographs that turned out not to be much of anything--her mother was not offended at them--by asking her if she and her roommate were naked, or they had dressed up in fetish clothing.
He was practically drooling.

That's Bill. The nation's Paragon of Virtue.

joanie

There's no making sense of Billo. Nobody should even try. He purposefully targets the id in all of us for one reason: profit for himself. He is a very simple-minded person. He is easy to understand. Explaining him takes one word: GREED.

Barger should have said simply: we love the American value of free speech and of speaking your mind. We will let Kos decide what his site should show just as OReilly decides what will appear on his show.. We'll stick to the airline business, thank you.

Sometimes less is better.

And, of course, I had time to think about it.


The tragedy is that so many people fall for this crap. Fox is a dangerous channel. BTW, the ads that defeated universal healthcare last time have started. "Industry-Led Smear Campaign Against SiCKO Makes Its Way To Drudge"

As a person who was totally disgusted with George and Jane (or whatever their names were) ads, I've been waiting for the new lies to appear. Americans would rather be sick and go bankrupt than question stupid ads from profit-motiivated healthcare companies..

I've often said we should replace the stars and stripes with a dollar sign.

anomolos

Poor Joanie--stuck in dollar-worshipping America with greedy Bill O'Reilly and dangerous Fox News and a bunch of stupid Americans.

If only middle America wasn't brainwashed by corporations to deny the holy wisdom of Cuban-style planned economies! When will those rubes ever learn?

At least, as a teacher, you have the comfort of knowing you can get to other people's children while they're still malleable, and make sure they know how awful America really is. See, there's always a silver lining!

seattlejew

Cuba is Cuba, but the US health sy6stem is still broken.

The attractive ting about Moore's polemic is that it proves some things. If Cuba can offer health care at the level it can, we should be able as well to do a much better job here.

Moreover, anyone who thinks that this system is "capitalistic" needs to find a better beverage than KoolAid. There are two major incentives in this system ... one to administer the system and one to limit health care. There are NO rewards for productivity since Docs and hospitals do not cmpete on that basis.

So whether you like polemics or not, Moore is absolutely correct that there must be better way of doing things.

Could there be free market answers? I pertsonally think so, but first we need to break up the system we now have because it discourages the existnce of a market.

One hopeful sign is the recent deveopment og doc-in-a-box practices in drug stores and malls. These places apparently operate at a profit while charging something reasonable ... about $60, per visit. not bad compared to the cost of an ER or clinic visit.

We have met the enemy and he is us.

Pogo.

sparky

Hey SJ, I read Goldy's account of your meet up at Pratt Park for the anti-violence vigil. Sounds like it was a great evening.

Jim Flack

Per your last paragraph, SeattleJew, those kind of developments are occuring right now. This story is in today's Seattle Times.

anomolos

seattlejew:

Thoughtful post. I'm not saying the U.S. healthcare isn't broken, but Michael Moore has proven nothing. Dragging a camera crew through a contrived "show clinic" in totalitarian Cuba says absolutely nothing about optimal health care practices in general, or how the U.S. might improve specifically.

I agree that we ought to look for free market solutions. My post was specifically aimed at joanie's denigration of U.S. "greed" (a.k.a. capitalism) and the implicit endorsement of Michael Moore-sytle--and Cuban--socialism.

Obviously there are two paths we can take, and although they can be blended to some degree, they are mutually exclusive in principle: harnessing the free market to create a better system, or resort to socialist central planning. You seem to endorse the former, as do I. Michael Moore, Communist Cuba, and American leftists like joanie embody the latter.

Andrew

It's fallacious to concluide that because some democrats are hateful that all or most democrats must be hateful. If O'Reilly proved that the majority of posts on Daily Kos posts were hateful then he'd have something, but the fact that it's so few just makes Democrats look better, that extremists are a minorty among us.

I'd welcom a survey that studies wether liberal blogs or conservative blogs have a higher percentage of hateful postings. One thing I do know is that there is no liberal equivelent of Ann Coulter or Michael Savage.

joanie

This is just duff trying to get me engaged. Notice he said nothing substantial in his post . . . just denigrated me and said capitalism is better than socialism. No "free market" ideas whatsoever.

Another vacuous post.

Andrew

No this is the guy who was on here about a year ago changed interupted every topic to tell us about his love of selfishness and then made fake postings in agreement with himself signed with alias names.

These blogs don't have sophisticated banning methods or even require a user account so any jackass that was here in the past will return in future, up until their heart becomes blocked off by the black ooz that courses through their veins.

We’re now at the third stage of this. In 2008 we move to the fourth.

coiler

Indeed, most crazy republicans and their rabble move into the 3rd stage when logic is against them. What is the 4th stage? Do they kill themselves?

ExPatBrit

There's an ad running on one of the local stations for Auburn Regional Medical center pointing out how good they are taking care of "non-urgent" conditions.

I other words they are trying to encourage us to go to the Emergency Room when a Band Aid or a trip to the pharmacy/ neighborhood clinic might be the solution.

Precisely the irresponsible behavior that forces up health care costs.

A free market solution cannot exist with insurance companies in the middle.

Unfortunately until we get those companies out of it there is no incentive to fix anything.

Single Payer is the only answer.

joanie

I love the way "free market" is bandied about. Almost everything is subsidized one way or another. If not by direct payments, then tax breaks. I mean, who really thinks we live in a free market?

It is no more of a free market or purely capitalistic economy than it is a socialist one. That refusal to acknowledge that we have regulated and subsidized capitalism is what makes these arguments so futile. At least the left can acknowledge the truth. The right seems to continue to rant about "free market" this and "socialist" that. A bunch of ignorant nincompoops.

And the right is all about money, honey.

coiler

No wonder the GOP crazies are against net neutrality. Access to info is just or more important than money. The blogs and Moore's docu's have made a huge dent in exposing the lies and hypocrisy of the elite.

Poor Frank. He can't hep it. It's the worstest , most traumatic thing that's ever happened to his provincial, precious, lilly-white ass!

Andrew

I don't mind if the medical establishment is free market based as long as their is some sort of publicly provided health coverage for everyone without insurance.

1) The lack of preventative care causes people to become sicker, and therefor run up larger debts, than they would otherwise.

2) Unlike socialized health care, it would retain the competive nature of the health care industry as it currently is.

3) You're an evil fuck if you think sick people should die wherever they fall just because they can't hold down a job. Not all men are actualy created equal but they should be treated equal.

anomolos

Andrew says:

Ah yes--from each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. Spoken like a true Communist. Why stop at health care? Should people have food even though they can't hold down a job? People need food, right? How about organic food? Why should they eat substandard food, just because they won't work? How about housing? A car? Cell phone? Playstation? Why shouldn't they get it when the rich do?

If you want to pay for other people's health care, nothing is stopping you. I assume you have some luxury goods in your house, right? Maybe a big TV, or a second car? YOU EVIL FUCK! Having nice things while people are dying where they fall!!

Being willing to spend other people's money is not a sign of moral superiority. You'd have to be a goddamn moron to think otherwise.

Damn HTML tags! Now I'll never get an answer!

There's something funny, and telling, about you calling me evil for insisting that we help sick people.

I obviously don't single handedly have enough cash to accomplish the same task as publicly funded health coverage. I don't even think Bill Gates has enough money for that. Stop acting like you're stupid.

anomolos

Andrew:

I didn't call you evil for insisting that we help sick people. I called you evil (by your own standard, which I do not share) for not helping sick people to the degree you can with the disposable income you already have. As long as you have a single luxury item in the house, that's money that could be used to help the sick. And if you lack the commitment to VOLUNTARILY make sacrifices for your pet causes, why should I be REQUIRED to make sacrifices for your pet causes?

The truth is, despite your words, you really don't care that much about sick people, or you would make sacrifices NOW to help them (meaning, you would give every spare dime to charity). You would be ashamed to have luxury items as long as there were sick people in the world. Don't act like this is impossible--there is a longstanding religious tradition of individuals adopting ascetic lifestyles to this end. Until you have, quit patting yourself on the back and lecturing the rest of us about evil.

There are an infinite number of compelling problems in the world that could theoretically be addressed with public money, and we could easily raise taxes to 100% and not begin to solve them all. Here's an alternative: you choose (and pay for) your pet causes, and I'll choose (and pay for) mine. In other words, let's act like it's a free country.

anomolos

joanie said:

What are you even talking about? When have I or anyone refused to acknowledge that our current system is a blend of socialism and capitalism?

We are not debating what is, we are debating what should be. The question before us is: which system, when applied, tends more to create liberty and the good things of life, socialism or capitalism?

History and reason tell us that capitalism as an organizing principle of society is more likely to lead to liberty and prosperity. This is counterintuitive, but true.

When you or your so-called progressive cohort express contempt for capitalism ("The right is all about the money, honey"), all you are doing is expressing solidarity with a failed and evil ideology, namely Marxism. You might not like that shoe, but it fits you perfectly.

There are undeniably two main ideas at play in modern American politics: traditional American capitalism (free trade constrained by legitimate law), and progressivism (equal outcomes for all!, aka Marxism). You cheerlead for the side that would enslave and impoverish us all, then deny there's even a distinction to made when it suits your argument. Where's the honesty in that?

Andrew

Even if I give my measily pay check to the "pet cause", it won't be enough money.

I suppose what you mean to say is if there were enough people like me and we all donated then the problem would go away, but obviously there aren't so it's a moot point.

Even if there were enough people volunteering the money, I don't care for the idea that greedy are rewarded with more money while the generous and kind hearted are punished by having lost the money they donated. If anything that should be in the reverse.

anomolos

Andrew said:

If there's one thing I've learned, it's that there is never enough money. Look at the war on poverty: trillions spent. Is poverty fixed?

Andrew said:

A couple of sincere questions:

If you're not greedy yourself, what do you care if other people have money or how they get it?

Isn't charity its own reward?

Why is it less of a punishment to voluntarily give money away than to have the government take it by force? Because everyone else is getting the screw put to them also?

Do you believe that you are entitled to have a say in the private and freely-chosen financial transactions of others, e.g. to intervene when the "greedy are rewarded"?

You obviously feel that greed is an objectionable character trait. How do you feel about envy?

Andrew

"If there's one thing I've learned, it's that there is never enough money. Look at the war on poverty: trillions spent. Is poverty fixed?"

Wow, that's amazingly weak. Interchanging the US health care issue with world poverty? Is that your final answer?

"If you're not greedy yourself, what do you care if other people have money or how they get it? Isn't charity its own reward?"

You are way off base. I don't want to cover the uninsured in order to feel good about myself, I simply DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO LACK HEALTH COVERAGE. I'm a pragmatist, not emotionaly deprived.

"Do you believe that you are entitled to have a say in the private and freely-chosen financial transactions of others, e.g. to intervene when the "greedy are rewarded"?"

No, society is allowed to make that decision through the democratic process. That's the American way. I hope this idea is put before a vote someday and that a mojority approves it. We colectively pay for the police and fire and so I think we should also collectively pay for health as well. The distiction is small.

"You obviously feel that greed is an objectionable character trait. How do you feel about envy?"

Greed is good in some contexts and bad in others. If greed inspires you to invent a cool gadget; that's good. If greed inspires you to let people die from curable diseases; that's bad.

Tommy008

Monty Markham was dead. The flamboyant gay talkhost from KROW, who had fled to Brazil only to be brought back to stand trial Seattle for felony fraud charges, had dropped dead during his community service at a soupline, from complications relating to AIDS. Dillard Montrose finished reading the front page story about Markham in the Post-Inteeligencer and put the paper down on the kitchen table of his seedy Beacon Hill condo. "Poor choices," Markham muttered. "You made poor choices in life," Markham." During better times , he would have brought Star and the girls into the kitchen of the big Eastside home in the lilly-white enclave, pointed to the story and used it as an object lesson, making the girls repeat the phrase "poor choices". Now the Eastside home was gone, and Suzette, Star and the girls were gone, down the west coast to their new life in Santa Barbara, where Suzette had found work again in PR. His KROW afternoon radio show was gone, due to his pulling the gun on the homeless man on the waterfront with "lobsterclaw hands". Tomorrow he was scheduled to start his first day as a greeter at the Kent store of his old radio sponsor "Smart and Final". Montrose passed gas, and winced............

anomolos

Andrew:

Your points are all reasonable and well-taken. I just wonder about that last:

If greed inspires you to let people die from curable diseases; that's bad.

Again, doesn't this accurately describe every single one of us, every time we opt to spend money on something frivolous rather than, say, a charity that cures people?

For instance, I understand that throughout the third world there are people dying for want of a dollar's worth of medicine. If buying a $4 latte rather than sending that money to save 4 people is greedy, who on this board doesn't fit this description?

I believe you when you say you argue from practicality and I can certainly respect that. If, as a taxpayer, I can save money in the long run by offering preventative care to some jobless deadbeat rather than emergency care, then I'm all for it. But I'm not going to delude myself and say I'm motivated by altruism. Millions of people are dying horrible deaths for want of a penny vaccine, and I'm standing in line at Starbucks with the rest of you.

Scheck

anomolos: you are head and shoulders ahead of anyone on this blog; they can't compete. And I'm sure it's eating at them. I'm surprised that Duffman and/or merci hasn't taken you on yet - they like to 'get into it'.

anomolos

joanie, tommy, Andrew et al:

The above complimentary post by Scheck was really made by me, under a alias, as a devious ruse. Logically, this must be the case, since I am the only person in the world who holds these opinions.

Feel free to construe this as evidence of the rightness of your views.

(btw, thanks, scheck)

chucks

And Scheck, anomolos has not yet posted anything that I find disagreeable.
cpp3 and merci will be along to inject the socialist liberal mantra any time now.

Andrew

I don't see the point. Do you win debates by making good arguments or getting inept retards to say "me too!"?

anomolos

While I'm waiting for libs to explain how they square their frivolous consumer habits with their overweening concern for the disadvantaged, I have another, unrelated question.

The text of the original article above contains the following pasage:

The hate that comes from the extremist right has a special quality, an extraordinary viciousness that makes clear that its purveyors are simply monsters with rotted smegma for souls.

Am I the only one who finds this statement more than a little ironic?

coiler

It would seem you are the only one, are you asking for a special status?

anomolos

Andrew said:

I don't see the point. Do you win debates by making good arguments or getting inept retards to say "me too!"?

I was joking. I am not Scheck or Duff or anyone else (I did make a couple posts with the alias "big tall warm glass of sweat" a few threads ago, but that's it).

I was making fun of this forum's tendency to accuse posters of writing under aliases, as though a) there were any motive to do so and b) it would have any relevance to the discussion at hand, even if it were true.

To answer your first question, you win arguments by making good points. Both sides on this forum have posters who chime in with a "me too" now and then.

Which leads me to a question of my own. Does expressing simple agreement make one an "inept retard"? If so, we all better put on our bicycle helmets.

anomolos

coiler sez:
It would seem you are the only one, are you asking for a special status?

I'll take that as a "no."

anomolos

(As in, no, coiler does not see the irony. Got my formulation reversed there.)

coiler

What formula? It came out of your ass. No need to worry about rubbing 2 brain cells together, ok?

Andrew

amonolos says I can save money in the long run ... then I'm all for it. But I'm not going to delude myself and say I'm motivated by altruism.

I don't support social health coverage just to save money. I believe everyone, even people who work at McDonalds, deserve health coverage. Just because you're a janitor doesn't mean you deserve die of curable diseases. Only a cruel, cold hearted son of a bitch would think so.

I hope most of America comes to agree with me and votes my way when the oppurtunity arises.

By the way theres this guy named "Duffman" who hasn't posted lately. You have a lot in common with him, and not just in matters of opinion. The similarities are striking.

Andrew

Does expressing simple agreement make one an "inept retard"?

Yes. The fact that anyone agrees with anything is immaterial to the debate.

If they had any brains they could atleast further explain why they agree. For all we know they agree with you because they have a crush on you. (likely)

Andrew

amonolos says While I'm waiting for libs to explain how they square their frivolous consumer habits with their overweening concern for the disadvantaged, I have another, unrelated question.

OK, suppose I give $1,000 to the Medicine For Poor People charity like you imply I should, will that make the whole problem suddenly go away? If not, why not?

anomolos

Andrew says:
Just because you're a janitor doesn't mean you deserve die of curable diseases.

Tell me more about this "deserve" of which you speak. Any other things that janitors "deserve"? And is there some sort of principle or standard that one could use to determine who deserves what, or is this a call you plan to make personally on a case-by-case basis?

Because it might come up in the future, and I don't want to have to call you in the middle of the night for consultation, please explain to me whether janitors "deserve" the following, and if not, why not:

- dental/vision coverage
- expensive organic food
- health club memberships
- access to psychologists to help with self-esteem issues
- free upscale housing
- a car
- a European vacation

Why health care and not this stuff? Or do they deserve this stuff too? Or just some of this stuff? Where do you draw the line, and what are your reasons for drawing it where you do? I'm not kidding, I'd seriously like to know if there's a methodical process going on or if it's strictly an emotional decision.

For all we know they agree with you because they have a crush on you. (likely)

Is that a gay joke?

sparky

Face it guys, anomolos is just a far better person than any of us here. I am humiliated just to think I thought I could ever post anything as brilliant and profound as he does. He is probably even smarter and better looking than the rest of us. Can't compete with that.

anomolos

Andrew said:
OK, suppose I give $1,000 to the Medicine For Poor People charity like you imply I should, will that make the whole problem suddenly go away? If not, why not?

I am happy to answer your question: Of course not. The problem will not go away if you donate $1000. It's not enough money to create a problem-free health care utopia.

Now let me ask you two questions:

1. Just because the problem will not go away completely if you donate $1000, aren't you still morally compelled to give the $1000 on the grounds that it will make the problem go away partially, even if by a small amount? Put another way, does your inability to help everyone excuse you from helping anyone?

2. Suppose we turn health care over the government. Will that make the whole problem go away? More specifically, will it resolve the problem without creating a host of unintended side effects that are arguably equally bad or worse? Are you sure?
