ObamaCare and ‘More thorough background checks’ together will mean more than Congress wants voters to think about

Many people haven’t caught on yet to the fact that:

  • ObamaCare will centralize medical records. Not all of them at once; but by creating a vetting process which doctors must traverse in order to get ‘authorized’ for procedures on individual patients, the federal government will be creating a clearinghouse for all medical procedures, prescriptions, analyses, and visit history that will be protected only by an internal ‘honor system’ from misuse and abuse. How long do you feel your own personal information (remember ‘doctor-patient privilege ‘?) will remain private?
  • Doctors can’t be responsible for keeping your information private once it’s connected to the centralized database. Current medical professionals are taught that federal law prevents them from sharing your personal information with anyone you don’t personally allow access to (there are forms you sign at the hospital, and whenever setting up a relationship with a new doctor). How long do you think it will take before the forms you are required to sign include access ‘for administrative purposes’ so that the federal overlords (death panels, if you will…) can rifle through your underwear drawer?
  • The increased reach of these new firearm background checks will necessarily have to somehow ‘touch’ a repository for where, at a federal level, someone can check to see if a person fits their floating definition of a ‘mental health’ risk.

Soooo… Have you ever been prescribed anxiety medication? Have you ever had a nervous breakdown? Fainted? PTSD? Autism spectrum disorder in your family tree? Treated for alcoholism? Marriage counseling? Has your doctor put in his notes that you have ‘avoided professional consultation’ in favor or your crackpot religious mentor (family minister)? HERE’S YOUR SIGN.

On February 5, Schmecker’s hospital primary care doctor called and heard a message on Schmecker’s answer machine that “sounded peculiar,” prompting him to contact the local police and urge them to visit Schmecker to perform a “wellness check”.

“The police came to my home, and, without any justification whatsoever, hauled me away for a psychiatric evaluation at a local hospital. I submitted to their forceful insistence under duress and fear of arrest or worse. I wasn’t arrested, no crime was committed nor any threats were made to myself or others,” Schmecker told Survive and Thrive’s George Hemminger.

“They confiscated my guns and pistol permit. I was released two days later from the evaluation on my on recognizance. I have since attempted to use the courts and attorneys to fight the revocation of my pistol permit. Then on top of everything else, the bills from the short stay at the hospital and EMS bills that they billed me, along with what I had to pay the attorney adds up to a large amount of money,” he adds.

…an Army combat veteran and Purple Heart recipient in west central Ohio who was the victim of a police raid on the evening of August 22nd during which Miami County Ohio Sheriff’s deputies executed a search warrant to seize the man’s firearms for the “safety of the defendant and the general public,” according to the warrant.

The veteran, who is currently unnamed, had his guns taken because he was adjudged to be mentally incompetent, despite the fact that his previous VA psychiatric evaluations were all clear, he is not on medication, and he had no criminal record. The man appears to be a respected member of the community – he works for a Christian company and his father is a police officer and a pastor.

David Sarti visited his doctor complaining of chest pains, only to have the doctor later commit him to a psychiatric ward and alert authorities, before Sarti was declared “mentally defective” and put on an FBI list that strips him of his second amendment rights.

Methinks Thou Doth Protest Too Much?

“The phrase’s actual meaning implies the increasing likelihood of suppressed feelings for the contrary of that which is being argued. I.e., the more passionate and fervent the argument, the greater likelihood the cause is a suppression of belief for the contrary argument, and the subsequent confirmation that it is the (actual) truer statement.” –Wikipedia.org

Through much of the last 20 years, Conservatives have been called ‘nazis’ (referring to the propaganda-fed bigoted, caustic and violent socialist movement in Germany many years ago, which is the direct opposite of Conservative values of small government, strong individual freedoms, and allowing a market-based economy).

Despite the Conservative viewpoint that less government is better government, the Left regularly refers to the Right as ‘fascists’ — confusing (either deliberately or out of ignorance) Nationalism with radical authoritarian nationalism (again see socialism and Nazis, above). Worse, the Left’s expectation that their own ideas can and should be exerted by force over citizens makes this accusation humorously ironic, if this reality weren’t so appalling.

Then, Conservatives were blamed for their ‘violent rhetoric’ (discounting the fact that of documented threats and actual physcal attacks, the Left attacks the Right more often by 5-to-1).

When Conservatives finally got up off the couch (becoming fatigued of having let the Left sculpt water-cooler chatter nationally for decades) and spoke up for state-over-State, and Freedom-over-‘Fairness’ — the Left again accused Conservatives of THOUGHTS, WORDS, and TACTICS that ONLY THE LEFT USES.

Nancy Pelosi, the American Left’s counterpart to Bagdad Bob, takes every opportunity afforded her by the cheering Media to call gatherings on the Right (made up of a wide cross-section of voters from all age groups, creeds, financial status, and… skin color) as both ‘Astroturf’ and ‘Racists’ — while protests engineered by the left (complete with professionally produced signs, paid protesters bused in from out-of-state, thousands of union-printed tshirts, and physically violent union enforcers) were bragged of as ‘grass roots’.

I’m still waiting for ANYONE on the Left (meaning the ‘impartial’ Media) to acknowledge that ALL of the things that they’ve constently accused the Tea Partiers of (falsely) has ONLY been perpetrated(and surpassed) by the Occupy protesters.

For those who align themselves with today’s Left, there is no moral high ground any more. You have used it all as fill dirt in attempts to bury both the voice of the Right, and your own credibility.

Americans enjoy freedoms outlined in a Bill of Rights; perhaps we need a Bill on NON-Rights to balance some of those who abuse our hard-won freedoms..

“We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other liberal bed-wetters.

We hold these truths to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights:

ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone — not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc.; but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.

ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful, do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.

ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we’re just not interested in public health care.

ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don’t be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.

ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don’t be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won’t have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.

ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.

ARTICLE IX: You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.

ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking country. We don’t care where you are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from!

(lastly….)

ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country’s history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!!!!
