I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
It’s not as if the 1018 page health care bill ‘HR 1233’ has the verbiage “Death Panels”, it is what the implication and ramification of provisions “End of life”, “Advanced Care Directive” and “Rationed Care”.
Rationing IS explicitly part of most of the proposals floating around Congress right now and it is all based on calculated life value which discounts the value of the lives of children and the elderly. The rationing in question WILL be adjudicated by government officials IF it becomes necessary.
Is the term “Death Panels” scare tactic? Yes and sometimes scare tactics are the truth seen through the mud of ambiguity.
