Forum Post: Marked For Death

I was talking to one of the people who owns a piece of land that borders on mine.Her husband recently had a very severe heart attack and the fact that he is still alive is a true miracle.She told me that she and her husband have been financially ruined by these problems.Between the two of them,the cost of prescription drugs they need is 3200usd.She told me the names of the drugs they take,and that they now take their medications only every other day.One of the drugs the husband takes,you can't do that.And I told her-you can't do that with that drug-if you do,your husband will die.She did not reply,and immediately changed the subject.They know.That explains all the trips they've been taking,and the long distance family visits,I guess.And that is how to kill lots of people.Just create a situation where people don't have enough money to live on,and they will die if they cannot fix the deficit.My best friend died last year because she was in poor health and became exhausted by the struggle to come up with enough money to support her young daughter and developmentally disabled brother,and herself.Now another person that I know is marked for death.What will happen to all those people in Detroit who are going to be stiffed out of their pensions?Surely they will end up without enough money to live on.There must be thousands of them.Are they marked for death?

I can't really understand why people are fighting,fighting,fighting Obamacare.Obamacare is a welfare program.Welfare is not available to anybody who lives with their parents or who is in an informal living arrangement.Obamacare will not provide medical care to the poorest people,and because it's welfare,reasons can be easily found to deny applications.I guess there is one lone person out there who is poor and whose life will end up being a few years longer due to Obamacare,and even that is worth voting against 30 or 40 times in "The House of Representatives."What a state of affairs,when we can't vote into office a Chief Executive who is better than Vladimir Putin.In fact,the poor and profoundly disgraceful performance of our elected Public Servants-who supposedly "work for us"-makes V.Putin,et.al.look like a passel of saintly do-gooders by comparison.In fact,our present situation beggars description...

It is heartbreaking to read your post. I wish your friends well and would suggest that they try to simplify their food and remove processed foods from their diet. Perhaps they can lease the use of their land to people who can grow wholesome food and keep ducks and chickens or even goats, in exchange for providing them with good wholesome food.

They would gain new friends who are probably young people and would gain from seeing things grow and the energy of the young folk who in turn would learn from them and their wisdom. Sorry if this sounds somewhat sappy and weak but we all need to empower ourselves and break through the alienation that is nurtured by the corporations and MSM so as to keep us apart from each other.

Healthcare in the US is a sick joke at best and evil, extractive, parasitic profiteering at worst.

Healthcare is THE issue for 99% after the economy. Never Give Up! Occupy The Issues! Solidarity.

We have chickens.We do grow our own food as much as possible-(our gardens were destroyed by flooding this year).What I wish is that people would get angry and get out in the streets instead of passively going along with this Death Program.One couple in Upstate New York has made the decision to co-operate peacefully with a death program.In the Northeast alone there must be several million other people who are co-operating with a death program -knowingly or unknowingly.It has all been done before,any student of history will tell you.

'The real health care battle in this country is not the ones being fought over the bill everyone now calls “Obamacare.” In fact, it’s not a battle between Republicans and Democrats at all. The real battle is the one millions of Americans face every day as they struggle to pay medical bills that now average nearly $10,000 per year - if they’re “lucky.” - from the second article above and ...

'Republicans say that Americans don't want top-down government control of their health care. But what we have now is top-down corporate control of health care. Insurers, drugmakers, sellers of expensive equipment, hospital executives, labs, home-health-care services and others unnamed prosper by exploiting the chaos in our health care system.' from the first article.

I very strongly agree with your wish 'that people would get angry and get out in the streets instead of passively going along' but with reference to your comment about Omabacare, I will recommend these articles to you - http://www.nationofchange.org/real-danger-obamacare-insurance-company-takeover-health-care-1352648027 and also http://www.nationofchange.org/horror-care-how-private-health-care-shortening-our-lives-1362411408 .

The Detroit pension issue is somewhat complicated. It is possible that City Mayors and State Governors have been trading union votes for pension promises for the past few decades, and that in and of itself is possibly a violation of how taxpayer money is allocated.

Excellent editorial. One of the main talking points on my www.debtsuspensionrights.blogspot.com blog pertains to how seniors are being screwed over by reverse mortgages.

Applying the Dodd Frank mortgage repayment rule to seniors who just want to draw a very modest amount every month off of their wealth is destructive to society and our local economies as well.

well there ya go - there's your death panels.

Solution:

Rather than get rid of guns, let us hand all of these dead people guns. Hand them plenty of guns. Hand them guns and ammunition. I mean, just imagine - guns in the hands of dead people!

Then turn them loose

Without free speech we are all marked for death, eventually, by our dependence and deep corruption of what has become leadership.
