18 Reasons to Oppose Health Care Reform

1. Although efforts have been made to reform the healthcare industry

since 1912, we should not be too hasty in enacting change.

2. The federal government has no business interfering in people's

healthcare decisions, unless a woman is trying to terminate a

pregnancy, or the patient’s last name is Schiavo.

3. The government is incapable of running anything efficiently, and if

allowed to offer a healthcare option, will run it so efficiently that

it will put private insurers out of business.

4. We are a Christian nation, and we don’t believe in helping the

least among us. Some people just don’t deserve healthcare. Getting

sick is God's punishment for doing something wrong.

5. The current system, with 47,000,000 uninsured, a million medical

bankruptcies annually, and 18,000 deaths annually due to lack of

insurance, is working just fine. In fact, we have the best health care

system in the world!

6. Even though many older couples are forced to divorce in order to

avoid catastrophic financial losses due to medical expenses, it’s the

homosexuals who are destroying families.

7. A conversation with your doctor about end-of-life issues is an

opportunity for your doctor to convince you to kill yourself.

8. We can afford to spend more on our military than all other nations

combined, but we can’t afford universal health care.

9. Single-payer, government-run healthcare is good enough for our

men and women in uniform, but to offer the same to the general public

would be socialism.

10. Pooling our resources to provide roads, schools, clean water,

military, police, and fire protection for each other is not socialism.

Pooling our resources to provide each other health care is socialism.

11. Socialism is bad. Very bad. Bad!

12. Health care is an issue best handled by individual states; like


13. We can afford to subsidize Iraq and Afghanistan ,

both of whom have universal healthcare, but we can’t afford it ourselves.

14. Money and corporate profits are more important than people's

health. Sure, reforming the insurance companies would save thousands

of lives, but shareholders’ portfolios might be damaged.

15. Freeing people from holding on to their dead-end jobs for the

insurance and allowing them to become entrepreneurs would bankrupt

our country.

16. Someone like physicist Stephen Hawking would have been allowed to

die under the British healthcare system. Oh, he’s British? And alive?

Never mind.

17. We already have universal health care: it’s called the Emergency

Room. Uninsured people can go there for all their health needs

(checkups, cancer pre-screening, chemotherapy, etc.), and it only costs the taxpayers a few thousand dollars per visit.

18. The Obama healthcare initiative is part of the liberal- communist-Nazi-socialist-Islamofascist-gay-atheist-zombie-transsexual-cannibal- sociopath-evolutionist indoctrinating school children agenda to take away your freedom!

Rag Doll livin' in a movie, Hot tramp Daddy's little cutie

You're so fine they'll never see ya leavin' by the back door, ma’am

Hot time get it while it's easy, Don't mind come on up and

see me. Rag Doll baby won't you do me like you done before


In the classic years, the perfect US white woman measured 36-24-36” as did Marilyn Monroe and the pinups of previous generations (although the average white American female was around 35-27-37. Barbie, introduced in the late 1950s, if she were life size would be 39-23-33. In 1997 Barbie had her 3rd plastic surgery to align herself more with young women, but she has not kept up with the times since by 2004, the average American woman: 40-34-43.



Oh, you beautiful doll!
You great, big, beautiful doll!
If you ever leave me how my heart would ache,
I want to hug you but I fear you'd break




I'm tired of cry-y-yin', and all her lie-ie-iein'. That's why I'm buy-y-in'

A china doll.

Her eyes are blu-u-uer. Her faults are few-ewer. Her lips are tru-uer

My china doll

I'd rather have a doll of clay

That I could call my own

Than someone else just like you

With a heart of stone

She'll never lea-eave me

She'll not decei-eive me

And never grie-ieve me

My china doll





You used to be my party doll.
But now you say the party’s over.

You used to be my party doll, party doll, party doll,

but now you say the party’s over.




Got myself a cryin', talkin', sleepin', walkin', livin' doll

Got to do my best to please her just cos she's a livin' doll

Got a rovin' eye and that is why she satisfies my soul

Got the one and only walkin', talkin', livin' doll

Take a look at her hair, it's real If you don't believe what I say, just feel

I'm gonna lock her up in a trunk so no big hunk can steal

her away from me.





All I want is a party doll to come along with me when I'm feelin' wild

To be everlovin', true, and fair, to run her fingers through my hair.

Come along and be my party doll, Come along and be my

party doll, Come along and be my party doll, And I'll make love

to you, to you. I saw the kind of a gal I'd love to meet

She had blonde hair and eyes of blue. Baby,

I wanna have a party with you.

Or Not


with Love Or Not

Manifesting…….over thousands of years ago as shadow puppets in Asia, a panoply of characters rife with life conveying chronicles as they silently stalked across soft lit walls. Moving across Europe in the 1700s, purveyors of culture, paper dolls acted upon paper stages, questing amid universal themes, contemplating life and death, love and betrayal, meaning and purpose…….

What fine dolls, as thought grew, so carefully designed and cut, embellished with handmade gowns made with bits of silk, lace cut Valentines, glittery department store packing tissue, and the fragile—kept between the pages of books, preserving dreams of lives to be—for the fortunate.

The not so favored, be they paper or fabric, wood or plastic

—the rest—

the laboring preponderance,

the replicating bulk,

as the heedless abscission neuronitically unfolds, evolving

(or not)

across vast centuries,

Begot BY the Bovinely-minded Bludgbeater-handed—







Breeder-spawner-makers quarried the USA-grade street slop off their shoes: tissue thin newsprint, toilet paper, raw pulp—thin skin—flesh grighed ‘n crumpchled into terrolyzed folds.


Oversized hands


smash a crooked face
not caring if
a leg left dangling
from paper tendon fiber hooks
tork twisted hips.
Webbed fingers? Of no consequence.

Razored corners where curves could be

attention shifted; half-cuts inflicted.

just pulp

and more where it came from.

Fist press

Good enough for pulp fiction

Scars, threnody-dreams, contorted myths in the wind with every moan



dolls cannibalizing their own parts for dreams they do not understand

and have no eyes to see

acidic leakage? Slather with perfume.

skinned anorexic to the core? Drape with Versace.

A soul squeezed to paper width? Anyone notice?

Jacked out eyes? Buy colored contact lenses.

Trapped in a formula tale, pages stuck together—

only rape can open them.

Mutilated—don’t mourn:
dolls come in dozens—

and the market needs only a few not mangled.

Note: not on the list are Male Dolls, most commonly plastic, most commonly with weapon accessories & one set of clothing—logo attached—a 20th century assault on the male ego, but not to be called dolls. (See, Toy Biz v. United States)

They are action figures.” The Court of International Trade determined that Toy Biz’ action figures were toys, not dolls, but "nonhuman creatures." To save money, Marvel Comics subsidiary Toy Biz argued that their action figures (i.e., X-Men and Fantastic Four) represented "nonhuman creatures" and thus subject to the lower tariff rates for toys, shocking fans since a common theme in Marvel Comics had been the struggle for mutants like the X-Men to prove their humanity. Fans expected more? G.I. Joe, modeled from a very human soldier, willing to die for his country, is not considered human enough to be a doll either. He, too, is just an “action figure,” even when he bleeds red on battle fields for wars he doesn’t believe in, and in the metaphoric battle of good and evil, the franchises are making a killing.

As his action friends have developed more musculature over time, rivaling those of even the largest human bodybuilders, so US males struggle, like many of their female counterparts, with body dsymorphia, eating disorders, and physical insecuritylost in the protean dreamish/nightmarish abscission fighting amid the dolls.
