So while failing to post punctual birthday greetings is, admittedly, a breach of the social contract, I think we can all agree that I had legitimate reason to fear for my life, and therefore I should just be let off with a warning.
As for the traditional birthday cheesecake photo, the good Doctor has requested that I forgo the usual Sexy Birthday Lizard, no doubt because he has a sentimental attachment to the human-reptile hybrids he builds in his lab at the World O' Crap World O' Headquarters, and doesn't enjoy seeing their relatives exploited.
However, since Tommy T has conclusively identified the mystery automaton below as "Robert the Robot," I thought we should further develop the theme with a photo of Sean Young in her second best role (after Stripes), as Rachael the Replicant in Blade Runner.
"Why worry about lung cancer when you've got a four year lifespan anyway?"
Speaking of warnings, beware: Ellis Washington ahead.
With the official launching of Obamacare on Oct. 1st, I am reminded of the famous aphorism attributed to playwright George Bernard Show, "The more things change, the more they stay the same." Have we learned nothing from history?
Well, we haven't learned that the famous aphorism was actually coined by French critic and novelist Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr, but as longtime readers know, an unfailing ability to misattribute quotes is pretty much the hammer in Ellis' rhetorical toolbox.
Who is the real father of universal healthcare?
We performed a paternity test but ironically, thanks to Obamacare, we won't get the results back for another six weeks.
Otto von Bismarck, the Chancellor of Germany (1871-90), established the world's first welfare state in Germany. In 1883, Bismarck established socialized healthcare in Germany with the Reichsversicherungsverordnung or Reich Insurance Act...
Bismarck's institution of socialized healthcare was designed to co-opt the increasing popularity of Marxist socialism and to implement its anti-God, anti-capitalism ideas spreading throughout Europe in the late 1800¡äs.So Bismarck, who was a devout Lutheran, tried to stop godless communism by implementing it? I guess this makes Obama a secret Prussian. Pass the word to the tea party poster makers: nix on the Hitler mustaches! All we have to do now is Photoshop the President with one of those big walrus 'staches and a spiked helmet, and we'll turn sauerkraut back into "liberty cabbage" before the 2014 midterms!
Modeling his government in part after the dictatorship of his predecessor, Otto von Bismarck, it was Adolf Hitler (1933-45) who actually forced socialized healthcare on the entire German people as a part of a comprehensive, systematic nazification of the German nation including its healthcare industry.
At the same time, Hitler also loosened restrictions on private gun ownership, which suggests that he owned stock in for-profit hospitals and was just trying to drum up business, the way itinerate glazier Charlie Chaplin (who also wore a Hitler mustache!) had Jackie Coogan throw rocks through windows in The Kid.
For this cause, Adolf Hitler must be considered one of the founding fathers of universal healthcare, along with the Soviet Union who had by 1921 established a universal healthcare system.
In much the same way, Wilhelm IV, Duke of Bavaria established the German Beer Purity Law in 1516, and therefore must be considered one of the founding fathers of the FDA, so if you're still pissed that you can't get cyclamate in your Sugar Twin, take it up with His Grace.
One aspect of Hitler's socialist universal healthcare model was "racial hygiene," the removal of certain "undesirable" segments of society who are judged beneath the Aryan ideal, thus "life unworthy of existence," as Hitler believed. Using his brutal panzer divisions, Hitler literally rolled out his universal healthcare throughout occupied France, Belgium and the Netherlands – those nations with mainly "Aryan" populations. Hitler used his military thugs the Gestapo and SS Stormtroopers, to implement universal healthcare
No one who lived through the 1940 invasion of France can forget the German's brilliant use of blitzkoloskopie, or "lightning-colonoscopy" tactics, and even today, few French veterans can sit down without a wince of remembrance.
Of course I do not contend that Obama is Hitler
But if America foolishly adopt policies of national socialism then we fail to learn from history the innumerable grotesqueries, inhumanity and genocide of previous nations who tried universal healthcare.
To grant governments this god-like power over birth, life and death issues will be misused, perhaps not exactly as it was in Nazi Germany yet these antecedents were merely harbingers of our present enslavement under Obamacare.Ah, so the Affordable Care Act is actually worse than the Holocaust. I should've known when I went to Urgent Care for one of my cluster headaches and the doctor prescribed a 10 mg tablet of Zyklon-B, taken once a day at shower time.
This genocide was conducted not out of evil intent but born out of medical necessity. Hitler, in his official directives, allowing medical killing, called them “mercy killing” and “lives not worth living.”Actually, Ellis, I think that any genocide, by definition, is born of evil intent, and that whole "medical necessity" business was just spin. In any case, I wouldn't be inclined to take Hitler's word for anything, and if he tries to sell you his old Volkswagon, I'd suggest you double-check to make sure the heater works.
This is the inevitable diabolical nature of universal health care.You know, if you've reached the point in life when you can no longer distinguish between such concepts as "requiring insurance companies to cover persons with pre-existing conditions" and "genocide," you really ought to get out of the business of right wing blogging and seriously think about running for a Congressional seat in Georgia.
Did Hitler do this because he was so worried about the health of the people and nations he conquered? No, Hitler loved universal health care so excessively that he forced it on occupied countries because it gave him the power and control over entire classes of people to facilitate his ghastly plans of genocide against them.
It's the same reason we don't execute the insane. Not out of some misplaced sense of mercy, or an effeminate respect for global standards of decency, but because, if you're going to kill someone, you want them to be healthy enough to fully experience their own murder. Otherwise, what's the point? It's like when you're just on the point of orgasm, and your mom calls you from the other room, and you have to hastily stuff the Clare Boothe Luce Institute "Great American Conservative Women" calendar under the mattress (and right when you'd gotten to the Jan Brewer page, too!).
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” These were the words of treason Obama uttered on the eve of his election that he and his progressive minions have been now systematically implementing for almost six years.
Obama is a decent orator, but frankly, those aren't the most inspiring words of treason I've ever heard. Philip Nolan did it so much better.
Hitler would be pleased.As history records, there is nothing that pleased the Führer more than the sight of a transformative Negro, unless it was semolina noodles in a light tomato sauce, with a nice rice pudding for dessert.
Since the Founders of America's Republic understood that humanity is by nature anti-God, hypocritical and duplicitous they created a system of checks and balances and limitations of government power because they realized someday a dictator like a Barack Obama would arise and seize power in the United States for himself by ignoring or deconstructing the U.S. Constitution.The Founders were indeed farsighted, but not, alas, clairvoyant. While Jefferson, for instance, correctly foresaw the day in which there would be a Black person in the White House, he assumed it'd be someone he was banging behind his wife's back.
Nazi Germany is the true birthplace, and Hitler, the real father of universal healthcare and like Lenincare, Stalincare, Maocare, Castrocare and Obamacare, all universal healthcare systems are derivative of Marxism, socialism, communism, progressivism, postmodernism and thus are antithetical to America's founding constitutional principles of God, the Bible, natural law, equality, liberty and truth.Apparently the suffix "-care" now serves the same purpose for death as "-gate" does for scandal. Was someone gunned down in a drive-by shooting? He was a victim of GangCare. Did she perish from tainted chicken that went uninspected thanks to the government shutdown? Cause of death: e coliCare. Run down by a drunk driver? CarCare.
Like Hitlercare, Obamacare which will inevitably lead to healthcare rationing, death panels, millions of uninsured and eventually the systematic genocide of the weak, minorities, enfeebled, the elderly and political enemies of the God-state.To be fair, that's still better service than I get from Blue Shield.
Obama is using his Gestapo and SS Stormtroppers or so-called "Navigators" (e.g., the youth, the unions, Planned Parenthood, NAACP, ACORN, La Raza, the Democratic Socialist Party apparatus, etc.) to propagandize the poor, the mis-educated and minorities who are being exploited to lead this final blitzkrieg towards accepting universal healthcare, but like in Hitler's Germany once the reality of their treachery metastasizes, guess who will be the first ones forced to sacrifice their lives for the Fatherland in our march towards a "perfect" society without illness or suffering? History has repeatedly demonstrated that the weakest and most vulnerable have often been the first victims to be eliminated.
Anyway, please join me in wishing Dr. BDH a very happy birthday, because thanks to ObamaCare he now has the power to kill us, but if we're really nice to him, he might kill us last.
