How will the price of fuel affect the price of food? Is it safe to eat genetically-engineered corn? Will we have to compete with the Chinese for food?

The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:

This story was written by an anonymous author, and in addition to other reasons for this repetition, I think it bodes well for those of us who are older to remember this when we go to the polls in November.

Also, if we are to save our Country from the Obama abomination in November, we must change the Congress. It will be our only chance to save this free Country we love so much.

Here is this story:

Wednesday, I was at the doctor, to whom I have been going since we moved down here to Palm Desert, California. He is the one who discovered my cancer. I have to get a very expensive shot every three months. Each time it costs $3,000. That is designed to keep the PSA down, and help to prevent a recurrence of the cancer. It has some uncomfortable side effects, and I was questioning the need to continue with it when the doctor assured me that it was necessary. He then asked how old I was, and when I replied 70, he said that if this new legislation does go through as intended by the powers that be, that I probably would not be able to get it next year anyhow, as that would be money better spent on someone else with greater longevity. I would be referred to someone to counsel me. That is barbaric! I asked him why the AMA had endorsed the plan, and he replied that only about 15% of the nation’s doctors were members of the AMA, and most of them were not really on the front lines of doctorhood, but in some other areas of medicine, like teaching.

This man got part of his training in London, and practiced in Canada for 16 years before coming to the U.S., and he has no use whatsoever for socialized medicine regardless of how you wrap it or what kind of bow you put on it. He said that we have a shortfall of around 400,000 doctors at the present time, and many of today’s doctors are of the Baby Boomer generation who are nearing retirement, and will decide to hang it up rather than be forced to decide who will live and who will die.

This is scary, my friends. The picture of our over 69 age group is not pretty in Obama land.

In fact, "Nobody over 59 can receive heart repairs, stents, or bypass because it is not covered, because it is too expensive and not needed," he said.

Obama wants to have a healthcare system just like Canada and England’s. And, he wants to discard the one we have, which is the best in the world.

If this does not sufficiently raise your fear level, just remember that our esteemed Senators and Congress people have voted themselves, at the cost of the taxpayers, their own healthcare plan that is very low co-pay. They and their families are guaranteed this plan for the remainder of their lives. They are not subject to this new law. They specifically wrote into the Bill a section exempting themselves. I say, if it is so good for us, why did they exempt themselves? Their behavior is despicable.

Please, use the power of the internet, and any other method, to get this message out. Talk it up at the grassroots level. We have an election coming up in about seven months, and we have the ability to stop and possibly reverse this dangerous direction Obama and Congress have begun, and in the interim let’s make their lives miserable!

You know, I am old, and wonder how dare those miserable skunks in charge of our government now play God with We the People while they embrace their own special exclusive healthcare program.

For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling.
