should tell you something about what is really going on in America today. Hint: It really has nothing to do with either candidates gender or race. For you low-information fools out there when ‘someone’ generally some form of ‘conservative’ parasite starts to talk about anything, anything but the real ‘God’ which rules our nation with and iron fist you’d better grab onto your wallet ’cause Homer..yer about to get mugged.
No days the mugging usually starts with some form of Health-Care. Here’s a short parable involving the players as they are often found:
Hillary, the monster.
The corporatist media retailing a reality that simply does not exist.
One progressive voice who in the end shows us the truth.
We start with this:
‘Not long ago, a young Ohio woman named Trina Bachtel, who was having health problems while pregnant, tried to get help at a local clinic.’
So, says our great President…’she can just go to the emergency room.’ Like so much of what is in Bush’s head this is little too complicated for him to actually deal with. As we see here:
‘Unfortunately, she had previously sought care at the same clinic while uninsured and had a large unpaid balance. The clinic wouldn’t see her again unless she paid $100 per visit — which she didn’t have.’
You see it? Can you see it? This woman’s problem was not that she was sick. No, no, no….her grievous problem was that she did not have any money. She was poor. Ah but she did eventually get care and all turned out right…..
Uh…sorry this isn’t TeeBee.. What actually happened was:
‘Eventually, she sought care at a hospital 30 miles away. By then, however, it was too late. Both she and the baby died.’
Hey, them’s the breaks here in America right……Right?
Well this story don’t stop there. Here’s more:
‘Some readers may already have recognized the story of Trina Bachtel. While campaigning in Ohio, Hillary Clinton was told this story, and she took to repeating it, without naming the victim, on the campaign trail. She used it as an illustration of what’s wrong with American health care and why we need universal coverage.’
Now you may have been yawning over this tragic but all too common tale from the Real America. Please wake the fuck up. ‘Cause here is were the tale takes a turn which shines the light on how this nation really works. Right here:
Some readers may already have recognized the story of Trina Bachtel. While campaigning in Ohio, Hillary Clinton was told this story, and she took to repeating it, without naming the victim, on the campaign trail. She used it as an illustration of what’s wrong with American health care and why we need universal coverage.’
Oh shit, there he goes with the Clinton shtick again you are thinking, well you are not actually thinking your mind is just doing what the Republicans and the corporatist press have programed it to do: Turn Off. Think that’s bullshit? Okay, read this:
Then The Washington Post identified Ms. Bachtel, the hospital where she died claimed that the story was false — and the news media went to town, accusing Mrs. Clinton of making stuff up. Instead of being a story about health care, it became a story about the candidate’s supposed problems with the truth.’
And then this:
‘In fact, Mrs. Clinton was accurately repeating the story as it was told to her — and it turns out that while some of the details were slightly off, the essentials of her story were correct. After all the fuss, The Washington Post eventually conceded that “Bachtel’s medical tragedy began with circumstances very close to the essence” of Mrs. Clinton’s account.
And even more important, Mrs. Clinton was making a valid point about the state of health care in this country.’
Let me repeat the important part: ‘In fact, Mrs. Clinton was accurately repeating the story as it was told to her…the essentials of her story were correct.’
Again, ‘…the essentials of her story were correct.’ Have you got that? The WaPo lied about what Hillary Clinton said and they weren’t going to correct that lie. Neither were Obama or MaCain, nor Tweety nor PumpkinHaid nor Kos, nor anyone else.This folks is how societies Collapse. This is what happened to the Anasazi and many other societies that preceded them and us. The information systems that every society relies upon to fucking survive become corrupted, as your smart aleck computer savvy kid will tell you…..
Garbage in Garbage Out. Think about it. And if you think this post is about Hillary….
Better read it a few more times.
