Good Morning, Healthcare Reform!

By Ingrid



Thank you also for providing us with that footage of the woman re-enacting the bear sighting:






Really, this protester is dead on: When I broke my ribs in that car accident last summer, I didn't want medical treatment -- I wanted to shed my holiday fat! I wanted leafy greens and yoga! When my uncle, a Vietnam vet, started coughing up black phlegm with traces of Agent Orange in it, the first thing he said when he finally caught his breath was: "Fire up the treadmill! What I need is some exercise!"


Maddie, please transmit this urgent message to the proper authorities!


Annoy a liberal: forget the second N in "annoy" and then squeeze it in last minute. Also, wear a fanny pack.


I forget which side this guy was on. The sign reads: "Jesus will bring universal healthcare in 2012!!"


Hmm, that's not what you said to me when I was protesting Iraq. Remember? You drove by and screamed "LOVE IT OR LEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAVE IT, HIPPIE!!!!" and then threw a Hardee's cup at me.

In other, related news, as I rode my bike through campus today I noticed that the College Republicans in the square were holding a sign that said, "Tired of change?" At least the GOP is finally coming out and admitting that they're a bunch of crotchety old fist-shakers.

  1. I'm so sick of hearing about health care reform. I'm against people on both sides because they won't shut the fuck up about it.

  2. jake, you feel so vehemently apathetic on the issue that i can only guess that you've never had a run-in with the insurance system before...and/or never had to go without treatment because you can't afford it? i don't really view this as a political issue so much as a basic right that we're not necessarily getting.

  3. No, I have had to go without medical help before and have dealt with getting treatment without insurance. I just am sick of hearing people talk about this issue. I'm for it, but it's getting tiresome hearing about it. Both sides are annoying.
