"...don't get sick after June."

From Free Republic:
"CROW AGENCY, Mont. - Ta'Shon Rain Little Light, a happy little girl who loved to dance and dress up in traditional American Indian clothes, had stopped eating and walking. She complained constantly to her mother that her stomach hurt.

When Stephanie Little Light took her daughter to the Indian Health Service clinic in this wind-swept and remote corner of Montana, they told her the 5-year-old was depressed.

Ta'Shon's pain rapidly worsened and she visited the clinic about 10 more times over several months, before her lung collapsed and she was airlifted to a children's hospital in Denver. There she was diagnosed with terminal cancer, confirming the suspicions of family members.

A few weeks later, a charity sent the whole family to Disney World so Ta'Shon could see Cinderella's Castle. She never got to see the castle, though. She died in her hotel bed soon after the family arrived in Florida."


You'll never guess who runs Indian Health Services. C'mon, take a guess. I'll give you a hint: It's really, really big. It robs you every payday. It robs you every April 15th. It builds bridges to nowhere and fish ladders. Yep, that's right, our Overlord, the federal government, runs Indian Health Services.

Ta'Shon's story isn't unique. In fact:


"On some reservations, the oft-quoted refrain is, 'don't get sick after June,' when the federal dollars run out. It's a sick joke, and a sad one because it is sometimes true. Officials say they have about half of what they need to operate, and patients know they must be dying or about to lose a limb to get serious care.

And as this post at Free Republic goes on to point out, the Veterans Administration is run by that great big snuggly monster, too.

And you must hate little Indian children and soldiers...well...everybody who wants this level of utopian healthcare, if you point out just how shitty it really is.


Meanwhile...get in line and pull your weight...slacker...

Slacker hater.

  1. My dear Buttercup, are you still trying to convince commielibs using logic and facts? You silly lady! Read Albert Einstein's definition of "insanity". You cannot convince a commielib using logic and facts, only a very hard clue by four, or a very fast moving projectile. As Ronaldus Magnus once said, "the only problem with our liberal friends is that they know so much that ain't so." Commielibs "know" that free anything is better than anything you have to pay for.

    1. HAHA! Good point.

      This I love: a very hard clue by four

      Sooooooo stealing that.
