Names of the Dead, the Damned, and the Dispossessed — We are Number 1!

(10 am. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Real people … who we knew and loved … who died unnecessarily in the U.S.

Real Life Stories of Americans


“My daughter got sick with cancer after her husband lost his job. She never told anyone she was sick because she knew the financial hardship it would cause and eventually the hospital would take their house for unpaid medical bills. We lost her in the following spring … We read her diary and learned all she was feeling and thinking. Now I wonder how many others are just like her in this America? And how many before her?”

Deaths due to Preventable Diseases: Dead Last

Rankings 1st to 19th. France, Japan, Australia, Spain, Italy, Canada, Norway, the Netherlands, Sweden, Greece, Austria, Germany, Finland, New Zealand, Denmark, Britain, Ireland, Portugal, United States…

Real. People. Dying. Unnecessarily.

Real Life Stories of Americans


“I work with a man who had to sell his house to pay for his wife’s cancer treatment. They had insurance, but it wasn’t enough to save her life. He lost his home, his best friend and his financial security.”

“My father was born in poverty . . .  He died in poverty too, but not because of his own laziness or waste or mismanagement. He had been a successful commercial artist with 20 employees. No, he died in poverty because he was a hard worker and always paid his bills and died trying to pay the astronomical bills from the cancer that killed my mother. My father fought in WWII. He believed in this country and this country let him down . . .”

“My mom has gone bankrupt due to bills and my grand mom died while not being able to afford proper care  . . .”…

Deaths due to Preventable Diseases Trending: Dead Last…

Do WE really have the “Best Health Care” in the World?

I guess, IF you can afford it — “WE” do.

and IF you can’t — Oh Well!

Maybe those “Real People” can get the Heath Care they need,

if they simply go to War — you know, sign up with that Employer of “Last Resort”.

War always seems to be a “Growth Industry”

that gets funded
No Questions Asked!!

(Right, Joe Lieberman?)

As long as America is pushing its weight around in the World, it’s A-OKAY with Congress.

No Fuss, No Muss.  As long as it’s fighting “Terra” — “All In favor?”

AYE!!!!   … the Ayes have it!

Write the Checks!!

Meanwhile back on the Ranch, the Misery keeps piling up, the pendantic political posturing, continues … “Business as Usual” — We JUST CAN’T afford Govt-Run-Health-Care! We got too many Wars to pay for, don’t you know?

It’s a good thing We got our Priorities straight, in America —

When it comes to the Issues of meting out “Life and Death”

and avoiding “frivolous spending” — we’re still Number One, by any irrational measure!

Someday, maybe, America will learn to become Number 1 … in Compassion, too ????

one can hope.

one can dream …

Dreams … those are still Free, aren’t they?

    No More lies!

    gotta love Neil Young!

  1. Do you actually think there is even a remote chance they would really fix health care?  The same government that blew JFKs head off?  The same government that flattened three world trade towers and blew a hole in the Pentagon?  The same government who is now eager to depopulate using swine vaccines?

    Now that is insane.
