Talk about biting the hand that feeds you, here’s the video from the recent incident where the Obama supporter bit off the finger of a gentleman who opposes the Obama healthcare takeover.

  1. Amazing how the media tries to spin this as generic townhall violence and completely ignores yet another Obama supporters thuggery.

    Obamatons have beat-up black people, elbowed folks in the face, slap them around, and now the Obama-goons are resorting to cannibalism.

    And the media ignores it. Unbelievable!

    What do you expect when we have a lapdog media rather than a watchdog media?

  3. When they catch the guy who did this, then I’ll comment. Until then, it could be just another backwards “B” carved into the face.

  4. Thank goodness he has government funded medical care so his trip to the emergency room will be covered.

  5. “Thank goodness he has government funded medical care so his trip to the emergency room will be covered.”

    Yeah…thank goodness he can get painkillers. He should stop complaining about not having a finger because he has government funded healthcare.

  6. This is terrible. Come on people, let’s keep it humane. Well, the debate is still neck-and-throat as pro-reformers and anti-reformers continue to disagree. And it doesn’t look like anyone else is budging. The financial Congress committee is still out with no clear signs of deciding anytime soon.
    I watched an interesting video on this at newsy.com earlier today. It’s a short, well-made (as well as unbiased) look at the ongoing struggle and many differing opinions. It’s worth watching/commenting on if you have a few minutes:

    Todd,
    The man who bit his finger off should be paying his medical bills… not the government (us)!

  8. @Annie Hoyle – nice theory, but since they don’t even know who the alleged assailant is, how is that going to happen? If found of course the man can be sued, unless he was defending himself as there seems some differing accounts of what happened, and if he has money maybe he could pay. However, medical providers aren’t going to provide care based on allegations and some possibility of future lawsuits.

    @Locke – you missed the point. The man is protesting government sponsored health care and yet is on government sponsored health care.

  9. I’ll take a consistent position on this and say that I’d like to see Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid get phased out. All these systems are huge inefficiencies and failures (or will be) at most. Let us opt out of the system so we can take care of ourselves with our own money and allow us to support private institutions instead of being forced under threat of the IRS to pay for someone else. Let us opt out and do it ourselves before the entire system collapses.

    DSW you are a hopeless idealist. What you propose isn’t new it was what we believed when we came to the United States that was, what was.
    As a consequence we saved and invested the fruits of our labor and retired ourselves at the old age of 49.
    Bush promoted someting similar a few years back but he got no traction and gave up.
    We cared less if Social Security would be still there should we ever reach 65, and we do just fine now.
    But you can’t do that anymore now with just everybody. Look what would happen to the legions of folks in their 30’s and 40’s who can’t afford to get a job because they can’t afford to get a W-2 or a 1099 form because they can’t afford to loose out on AHCCS if they worked a real job for a living.
    Their rent subsidies would also stop.
    Think of it, NO school lunch? No ALL DAY Tax Payer Paid Baby Sitting. No free emergency room treatment.
    Mass unemployment on the State, County and City employment roll for no longer pushing paper and no longer “Rendering Service” like writing and mailing entitlement checks to the above group of citizens?
    Over half the Government buildings would be empty, there’d be nothing to do for them.
    What are you trying to do? You want to end Socialism and turn America back into the time when self-reliance was the norm?
    That is impossible. Self reliance is no longer taught here, Pedagogues don’t teach any longer, the curriculum is set by Unions and Socialists for the most part.
    Let me tell you, it is too late, you can’t turn the clock 80 years back, as much as I would like to see that and help you.
    Are you a revolutionary Revolusionist?
    Be careful whom you are talking to. At best they’ll send some fellows in white coats who will take you to a small quiet place, for your own safety of course.
    At worse they’ll give you enough medicine, for your own good, that turns you into a Sombie.
