Somethin’ Fishy Goin’ On

The White House blog, The Blog, in a post by Macon Phillips called Facts Are Stubborn Things, asks people to notify them of posts or people they deem to be spreading untruths about the Obama health care proposals.


Mr. Phillips writes, There is a lot of disinformation about health care out there. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag at whitehouse.gov


Notice that the White House now refers to the intended destruction of the most successful medical system the world has ever seen as “health insurance reform”, tempting us to believe they intend a minor tweak, nothing to worry about. Move along, folks, there’s nothing going on here.



‘Tis but a step, with whispered smile

He said, To catch what’s fishy

To having all the names on file

Whose politics are squishy

Those folks who dare to disagree

With things that we are doing

While on this little spending spree

That some think is ungluing

The country that was forged in pain

And sacrifice and valor

And seem to think that there’s no gain

In bleeding down to pallor

All once held dear by all who claim

To love the country dearly

And yet will not accept the blame

For poor health care that yearly

Causes deaths and broken dreams

While costs are nearly tripling

And tea parties with right wing teams

Are very nearly crippling

Our plans to take this country down

The road to wrack and ruin

Those folks outside this DC town

Don’t know what they are doin’
