Where would we be without the Sinisterhood?

Treating 65 year olds differently because of stereotypes or falsehoods would be ageist; treating them differently because they have already had more life-years is not.”
Combine this philosophy with the news that HHS Secretary Sebelius is arbitrarily forcing two million seniors into an experimental plan called an ACO, described by John Goodman as “HMO’s on steroids.” As he recently explained:
Like the traditional HMO, doctors in ACOs will have financial incentives to withhold care (something the American Medical Association used to consider unethical). In most cases, they will get to keep part of any money they don’t spend. What makes them different from the traditional HMO is that they will be under intense pressure to practice medicine according to guidelines written by people you will never meet or see.
Actually, we have seen these people. See Bathtub Guy above. We will not have control over our wallets, due to the excessive taxes that will be required to deal with the boatload of debt President Obama is racking up, and soon, we won’t have control over our womb or other body parts under Obamacare. There are going to be a whole lot of old biddies like me, who will clog up the actuarial chart by outliving our “life-years,” to use Dr. Emanuel’s expression. Or, to conjure up a quote, that Charlton Heston might have made, “Soylent Green is Seniors!”
The Sinisterhood is worried about the wrong things. They don’t think women are smart enough to see through the fake reform of Dodd-Frank, which hurts small banks, exempts Fannie and Freddie, and may make those “too big to fail” banks even bigger. Or smart enough to get a photo ID, in order to vote or access the Democratic Convention. Or even smart enough to do the math and figure that by foregoing eight grande skinny lattes a month, you can afford to pay for your own damn pills.
Like I said, this is a tough time to be a woman.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
