Death Panels.....

death panel imagesChris Broughton,  who brought an assault rifle and a handgun to the Obama event in Phoenix last week, attended  an anti-Obama sermon just a day before showing up. In the sermon Pastor Steven Anderson said he would "pray for Barack Obama to die and go to hell", Anderson confirmed this to TPMmuckraker yesterday. The sermon was called "Why I Hate Barack Obama" and had hate-filled anti-gay themes.  This is much like the atmosphere the seized america in the late 50s and early 60s as Brown vs board of education was being implemented by forced integration by bussing African american school children into white neighborhoods and visa versa. The consequence was a serious of bombings, lynching, murders and assassinations that ripped the at the heart and soul of this nation. If the republican crazies like Sarah Palin and Glen Beck don't stop this hate speech - they will have blood on their hands.

In strange news...

For all the hoopla surrounding  "death panels" being implemented in health care legislation, it's worth noting United Healthcare offers end-of-life planning coverage that is similar to that being put forth by House Democrats. Well...Tea Baggers? Will I here you yelling that "privatized" "for-profit" healthcare is trying to "take out" Grandma.

From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
