Limbaugh says to those without Healthcare: "Get Rich or DIE Trying!"

Right Wing/Republican Pundit, the NEW Leader of the Conservative/Republican party, Rush Limbaugh is laughing and LAUGHING at the plight of the 80 million Americans without health insurance.


According to Rush Limbaugh, if you don't have the money to pay for dental care, then you should eat applesauce. Limbaugh said on his Feb. 25 radio show, "well, what's wrong with using a dead person's teeth? Aren't the Democrats big into recycling? Save the planet? And so what? So if you don't have any teeth, so what? What's applesauce for? Isn't that why they make applesauce?"


While the Democrats bring up example after example of American Citizens in trouble due to lack of coverage/the growing expense of coverage, Limbaugh laughs. Limbaugh mocked the story of transplant patient on Medicare who will have to pay, out of pocket, their own healthcare bills after three years, without the help of insurance. Limbaugh said, "This guy is -- he about had an emotional breakdown 'cause he was told he's gotta start paying his own medical bills after three years. He gets a free transplant; he gets a free after-care for three years and then he's on his own, and he's mad and thinks he's getting screwed."


Limbaugh is advocating people get rich and pay for their own healthcare, forget insurance. He said, "I'm one of the 47 million uninsured, and I'm -- look at me in one way, I'm providing leadership. I'm advocating a system get reformed so that people can afford it." Limbaugh told one caller who can't afford $6,000 to treat his broken wrist: "Well, you shouldn't have broken your wrist."


Limbaugh, equating Americans to Dogs said, "There's no federal dog health care plan out there and healthcare for pets is working fine."


It is clear. Conservatives/Republicans DO NOT CARE about the American People when it comes to Healthcare! Healthcare costs continue to rise out of sight! Healthcare coverage continues to diminish! And the Conservatives/Republicans, JUST DO NOT CARE! Or as Limbaugh says, "Let them Get Rich!"

I'm not sure where to begin on just how far off base you are, but I'll try:

1. "well, what's wrong with using a dead person's teeth? Aren't the Democrats big into recycling? Save the planet? And so what? So if you don't have any teeth, so what? What's applesauce for? Isn't that why they make applesauce?"

I'm guessing you don't see the satire when it's coming from someone you don't like. Let's take the things that John Stewart and Stephen Colbert say as examples of satire. Now, how is Rush any different? Because you don't like him perhaps?

2. "This guy is -- he about had an emotional breakdown 'cause he was told he's gotta start paying his own medical bills after three years. He gets a free transplant; he gets a free after-care for three years and then he's on his own, and he's mad and thinks he's getting screwed."

Well..... Is he a vet? Does he not have a union? If I get injured in a car accident, does the other person's insurance company cover me for life?

3. Limbaugh is advocating people get rich and pay for their own healthcare, forget insurance. He said, "I'm one of the 47 million uninsured, and I'm -- look at me in one way, I'm providing leadership. I'm advocating a system get reformed so that people can afford it." Limbaugh told one caller who can't afford $6,000 to treat his broken wrist: "Well, you shouldn't have broken your wrist."


That would be the BEST solution. People dropping their consumer debts (credit cards, ect.) learning to live within their means, and- my favorite- learn to take better care of themselves. I saw a survey once that stated that some 70%+ of people going to the emergency room either A)wasn't in dire need of care or B)where there for completely preventable things.
Obesity (with America at 34% of adults, or roughly 110 MILLION people- some interesting info at http://www.obesityinamerica.org/) is the fastest growing contingent leading to hospital visits, second being communicable diseases.
BOTH are preventable.

Hardly satire.
This is how he thinks.

I wonder how much the Healthcare providers and Pharmas are paying him to push this line of talk.

It is absolutely ridiculous.

Does he have any loved ones he can worry about? He is divorced, so no wife. No kids. Drug Addict. Sad Case!!

The failure of the Racial Myths : The Aryans, the Nazi Ahnerbe, Hitler complaining of failure of Nazi Archaeology - The failure of the Anglo-Saxon Myth

American Imperialists from 1830 to 1930 approximately talked about America being a "Greater England with a nobler destiny" and exalted the properties and advantages of the "Anglo Saxon Race" ...... They believed that America was very "Anglo-Saxon".

But it is estimated that most "White" Americans have some non White ancestors, many of them Black, Native American Indians, from Southern Europe, or from some location in the Middle East. Many "White" Americans have confessed to me ( as if I were a priest and if this was a grave sin ) of not being 100% pure and having some stain in a Great Grandfather or something earlier, some of them confess in low voice and whispers.

As far as I know nobody is perfectly White or Black :

There are many sites in the Internet that show the foolishness about the Aryans, and English Investigators ( like Stephen Oppenheimer ) tell us that the Anglo-Saxon tribes may have been a Great Mixture of Peoples that slowly migrated to Britain in many waves. Famous ArchaeoGenetic Investigators have concluded that the Population of England and larger Britain is mostly paleolithic and more related to the Iberians and Basques of the Post Ice Age, than to other Europeans.

So to trace the Anglo-Saxons in British Genes has been very frustrating for researchers and a small percentage of these "genes" are present only in the East of England, but not in Wales, Scotland or Ireland. The Anglo-Saxon alleged genes are absent or very scarce in Southern and West England.

The topic is very nebulous and controversial, but linguists, archaeologists and other scientists have great doubts about the Anglo-Saxons and consider their influence not so strong as previously believed.

And the Myths of the Nazis about the Aryans can not be more Crazy and are shown by science as false. .... Even Hitler complained that Himmler and the Ahnenerbe or Nazi Archaeology cost a lot of money and found absolutely nothing of a Great German Past before Christ or Julius Caesar. Hitler was very sour and angry at the failure of Nazi Science to support Nazi Racism.

If you study the mind of Himmler you only find a Great Freak and believer in the most Absurd Myths and Crazy Foolishness.

So the Ahnerbe was a failure showing that there was no Great Germanic Aryans in the past. Today the Aryans of 5,000 years ago are considered to be more like the Iranians, Afghans and Iraqis of today.

And with respect to color, it has been shown that it can change very fast by evolutive forces and that there are thousands of other different characteristics that are not studied or known by the Racists.

The Tea Party Is All About Race
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/bob-cesca/the-tea-party-is-all-abou_b_484229.html


Some excerpts :

Because when you strip away all of the rage, all of the nonsensical loud noises and all of the contradictions, all that's left is race. The tea party is almost entirely about race, and there's no comparative group on the left that's similarly motivated by bigotry, ignorance and racial hatred.
....................

This isn't an epiphany by any stretch. From the beginning, with their witch doctor imagery, watermelon agitprop and Curious George effigies, the wingnut right has been dying to blurt out, as Lee Atwater famously said, "nigger, nigger, nigger!"
....................

TeaParty.org founder Dale Robertson brandished a sign with the (misspelled) word "niggar." So they're not even as restrained as the generally unstrung Atwater anymore.
.......................

Rush Limbaugh referring to the president as a "black man-child,". ............. Limbaugh, on the other hand, can stoke racial animosity on his show by suggesting that health care reform is a civil rights bill -- reparations
.................

The tea party is an extension of talk radio. It's an extension of Fox News Channel. It's an extension of the southern faction of the Republican Party -- the faction that gave us the Southern Strategy, the Willie Horton ad, the White Hands ad and the racially divisive politics of Lee Atwater and Karl Rove. It's an extension of the race-baiting and, often, the outright racism evident in all of those conservative spheres.
.......................

And when you throw out all of the nonsense and contradictions, there's nothing left except race. There's no other way to explain why these people were silent and compliant for so long, and only decided to collectively freak out when this "foreign" and "exotic" president came along and, right out of the chute, passed the largest middle class tax cut in American history -- something they would otherwise support, for goodness sake, it was $288 billion in tax cuts! -- we're left to deduce no other motive but the ugly one that lurks just beneath the pale flesh, the tri-corner hats and the dangly tea bag ornamentation.
...............

In those lines waiting for then-vice presidential candidate and current tea party heroine Sarah Palin, their loud noises spread the pre-scripted lies, lies that entirely hinged on the president's African heritage. A white candidate would never be accused of being a secret Muslim. A white candidate would never be accused of being a foreign usurper. Only a black candidate with a foreign name would be accused of "palling around with domestic terrorists."
.............

By way of a postscript, one of the many faceless radio talk show wingnuts, Jim Quinn, this week called President Obama a "Kenyan wuss" who should be "slapped silly." The Kenyan lie and the "slap silly" insult aside, this president is no wuss. You know how I know? He's a black man who ran for president and won despite the growing mob of gun-toting militant white bigots like Jim Quinn who are sucking air in America. President Obama achieving this despite the hatred and threats against him takes serious guts. Guts that Jim Quinn and the tea party movement will never understand.
