Be a Tea Bag Designer in Your Spare Time

A career with a promising future in today's America is banner ad designer for the right wing mob. I just threw this one together in about five minutes. I think it says everything they want me to say.

I love how the mob yells, "Do you want the government deciding who your doctor is? Do you want the government deciding what procedures you can get?"

Well, right now United Healthcare decides those things for me...at an exorbitant rate.

Or this is one of their favorites: "What has the government ever run right?"

Aren't these the same folks that love "our men and women in uniform" more than you or me? I'm pretty sure they'd have a hard time saying the military, a government entity, is shoddily run.

Now I need to make one showing him as the foreign-born Muslim prince boy, puppet of the Illuminati, destroyer of all we hold dear. Crushing baby skulls and lifting the dress of Lady Liberty while he urinates on Old Glory. Yeah.

  • Living in America is getting scary...haven't we taken cynicism to an all time new low here? The rural folk who refuse to (or can't) expand their thinking beyond their own little lives see this crap and believe it! Yes, my own poor mother sent me something similar to this...I say, Ma, put down the bag of pork rinds... Obama isn't going to kill anybody. I often think I was adopted.

  • One "rural folk" pea-brainer here noting that while the military functions pretty well, the VA health care system does not.

    Gallup polls indicate that the majority of Americans are both satisfied with the quality of health care they receive, as well as satisfied with their coverage.

    If it ain't broke, why fix it? Especially since we as a Nation ARE broke.

    Plenty of free market solutions to make health care AND insurance coverage more affordable.

  • this is perfect for the right, which is why it scares me. please, next time you do one of these, add an element of snark, or else you'll find your creation having been copied and pasted and distributed throughout wingnut land as-is. just sayin'...

  • I agree- this should seriously be watermarked as a snark!
    The VA hospital system is messed up, is that because of the military? Yes..all the money goes to the defense fund and not the military health care fund. Bring the troops home, spend that gajillion dollars are fixing the VA medical system!

  • Medical care should be a right not something reserved for the rich.

    When us down under folk take out travel insurance it costs twice as much for USA as it does for UK. Why? Medical costs!

  • @Jess. I don't know about the VA, but from what I've heard, you're right in that it sucks pretty bad.

    However, growing up in the military, I knew nothing but Army, Air Force and Navy hospitals/clinics for treatment, and I can't say it was bad at all. Eventually having to find insurance and private care was a real eye-opener.

    The system is not well.

    Anyway, the point of the post was to point out the scare tactics being used right now by those opposed to any reform.

By the way, I pay $700 a month for my family coverage and I like it...O, NOW YOUR AGAINST FREEDOM OF CHOICE?

  • Those malevolent, red eyes sear into your old, withered soul! Brilliant portrayal of the Right's portrayal of President Obama. Per usual, it MUST be one way or the other. He's either the savior or the plant.

    Can't the [present] President simply be somebody far more capable of governing a nation of people better than you or I?

    Nothing is black and white. Life is all gray. This guy has several near-catastrophes to wrestle with. Let him have at it.
