Is Obamacare Socialism or Fascism?



As a general rule, I avoid “healthy” food whenever possible. I try to eat things with extra fat and lots of additives. This is a conscious strategy that should assure that I keel over before being left to the tender mercies of Medicare after the Obama administration has transformed it into a system that rations care based on a Byzantine formula that purports to measure how many “quality” years of life a patient has left. Moreover, if I consume enough chemical additives, I can save my family some money by arriving at the funeral home pre-embalmed.

For a brief period this week, however, I was on the verge of bestowing my custom on Whole Foods Market, despite its deplorable policy of “selling the highest quality natural and organic products available.” Why? Because it seemed that the grocery chain’s CEO, John Mackey, was that elusive creature for whom Diogenes searched so fruitlessly — an honest man. Mackey is currently promoting his new book, Conscious Capitalism, and has therefore subjected himself to a series of media interviews, including one recently broadcast on NPR.

During that interview, he was asked if his opinion of Obamacare had changed since he wrote, in the Wall Street Journal, “All countries with socialized medicine ration health care by forcing their citizens to wait in lines to receive scarce treatments.” He answered as follows: “Technically speaking, it’s more like fascism. Socialism is where the government owns the means of production. In fascism, the government doesn’t own the means of production, but they do control it — and that’s what’s happening with our health care programs and these reforms.” Read more...

  1. Here's the problem: EVERYONE knows what foods are healthy ... and everyone disagrees. There really aren't any "bad" foods or "good" foods there are mostly just differring opinions. And of course the waters are muddied by various diseases that are negatively affected by some foods. Diabetes is a good example of this; the inability to process sugar correctly in your body makes foods high in carbs bad for you. Does that mean foods high in carbs are "bad"? well not if you don't have diabetes! Your body requires fats, carbs and protein. The best way to get this is to eat a variety of foods and not discriminate against entire food groups based on persoanl biases. What are personal biases you ask??? why that is when you decide that some foods are "healthy" and some are not.

  2. Its both. He is following UN Agenda 21 in many of his executive order. UN agenda 21 has elements of communism fascism and socialism. It is all about reducing the population to a level of neo feudalism where you have a nanny state that controls all aspects of life. Seeds of this can already be seen today.

  4. All the ism's have the same agenda - control the people. De-populate and control whats left over from wars, famines, economic collapse, and oh yes, (taking your guns). The elites' playbook is always the same, so america better sit up and take notice. We are at the end of that playbook, at the brink of total take-over!

  8. It's so essential to get and be on beat in a particular music.
    Although a professional guitar teacher is definitely the best
    way to learn to play classical guitar, you may choose other methods
    too. The good thing is there are several simple steps that will make your
    long awaited karaoke nights stress-free.
