Now whose health-care plan was “Just Die!”?

I wonder if freshman Congressman Alan Grayson (D-FL) wants to rethink his idiotic “Republicans want you to die quickly!” li(n)e after reviewing some audio that Morgen of Verum Serum dug up of former Clinton Labor Secretary/Obama economic adviser Robert Reich speaking at the University of California-Berkley back in 2007. Roll tape…

That’s right; the Leftist crowd at UC-Berkley applauded when Reich said that an “honest” Presidential candidate would tell seniors that he would let them die rather than keep them alive the last couple years.

      Totally sick that Reich gets away with this. Even more disgusting is that Obama’s “sheep” do the dirty work and keep their “Master” free of blame. I am looking forward to Obama imploding from within.

      In the meantime, God bless our troops, their loved ones and God bless America!

      Where are the outraged American citizens? How can so many people defend this Administration with all the corruption and obvious socialist moves?

    3. To think that little [expletive] Reich was my next door neighbor when I grew up in Cambridge Massachusetts. That’s right folks I came out of the Belly of the Beast, Harvardlandia.

      Technically, the donkeys are correct when they say the “review boards” for the aged aren’t “death panels”. The problem, though, is that that is what they will evolve into, once they are created. It’s simply a matter of expanding their reach (and what guvmint bureaucracy hasn’t done that?), a simple task when so many of our citizens are oblivious to the attempt of our glorious leader to nullify the Constitution and create a “workers’ paradise”.

      The rest of the country, variously known as “undocumented workers”, “foreign uninsured”, “illegal aliens” and “criminal aliens” came from socialist countries and have no problem with sucking at the teet of Uncle Sugar.

      This little tape proves how uneducated some college students really are! Although if it was a full auditorium, the applause was a bit thin at best. I believe some of the listeners may not have been so enthused about the message.

      Reich is from the set that said, “Don’t trust anyone over 30″ when he was in college and he thinks he can go back and influence young minds? :-?

      Classic Obama….send another person out to face whatever flack might blow back….what a genuine coward he has become. He will give an interview to anything that breaths unless it comes from the Fox News direction. He has become a really Bubble Boy!

      Tanna: It seems such a waste.
      Eros: Well, wouldn’t it be better to kill a few now than, with their meddling, permit them to destroy the entire universe?
      Tanna: You’re always right, Eros.
      Eros: Of course. But those are not my words; those are the words of the Ruler.

      It is rather strange that the applause was the loudest when Reich was talking about killing Grandma. This is what you get when a generation was raised with abortion on demand. Life means little to nothing to them. I find it odd that someone would say this about our senior citizens, who was and is our “Greatest Generation”. Is this the pay back that they get for all the struggles they went thru?? Get the hell out of the way, you cost too much?? Is this what happened to Ted Kennedy?? Did the Kennedy clan get together and pull the plug on ol’ Teddy, cuz he was cutting into the family fortune?? Is this what they are going to say to Jimmy when he gets to this point?? Or Bill for that matter, when after years of whoring around his STDs finally get the best of him?? Just get the hell out of the way, you cost too much. How about ol’ Robert Byrd?? Heck speaking of old Senators, how about retirement pay for Congressmen, Senators, and Presidents. Lets cut that off, it costs too much.

      Why should the people have to suffer anymore than they already have for this country. If it’s right for 1 Senator, it is right for everyone. Period. – Lorica

      Reich’s ” push ‘em out on a block of ice ” case resolution for the sick and elderly is a subject to be stridently avoided for media coverage – that is unless a conservative says it.
