In reading Dale McFeatters' oped on Healthcare reform I was inclined
to ignore this issue. However, truth always wins out. Revisit
the "speech" on this matter to the joint session.
It is empty of fact or substance, full of rhetoric and grandstanding.
There is plenty of denial on issues dear to the citizens but
empty of sources to back up those denials, just denial, oh, and
threats against any who oppose the "reforms". Here
is just one "fact" relative to peoples concerns: In
an article by Byron York, Chief Political Correspondent, The
Washington Examiner, entitled: "Health care reform means
more power for the IRS", he claims that the IRS would become
the main agency charged with determining if you have "acceptable"
health insurance. This article inspired Herman Cain, "The
Herman Cain Show" to do some research. He found the following
little tidbit: "It's Division A, Title IV on pages 167-215
called Amendments to IRS Code of 1986. The expanded powers of
the IRS in H.R. 3200 would empower the IRS to require taxpayers
to show proof of health insurance coverage, collect fines on
individuals and employers who did not have adequate proof of
health insurance and determine whether your health insurance
was a government approved plan."
Sorry "Dale", but I bet you never even read H.R. 3200,
or is it you just don't care?
Those who permit evil to triumph are just as guilty, sitting
back and hoping for the best "change", as those who
perpetrate the evil. I'm sorry, but giving the IRS more guns
and more power over peoples lives is not the answer to social
change. Unless you really just want socialism. Hmmm, Let's
stop and really look at the backgrounds of the ones in charge,
and their advisors and confidants, their history of social activism.
Better yet, go way back, back to 1960 when little Nikita took
his shoe off and banged on the table and stated "We will
bury you", all the while referring to imperialist America,
her social injustice and disorder. He also stated that the USSR
did not have to invade the USA, they would destroy her from within.
Now again, tell me about your change?
Justice is it's own Petard. Truth is it's own Discard.

the First Peoples. I am a retired investigator having worked
for the DOD, State, Military and private agencies in the areas
of fraud and security."
