Let Me Be Clear: this Is A Very 'fishy' Article!!

by Amo (writer), New York, August 06, 2009

For those that consider this article "fishy" you now have the blessings of this progressive White House...

...to tell on your neighbors if they (or I), have the audacity to challenge this President on Healthcare or any other issue that effects “US”.

The sheer arrogance of this administration is simply breathtaking, and there seems to be no bounds on its intrusion, on our way of life…how dare he trample on our constitutional and GOD GIVEN RIGHTS…that of free speech!

For those unfamiliar with what has taken place, the White House has just issued what can best be described as a “warning notice” eerily similar to those that cropped up in Germany in the early 30’s, warning citizens of “scary chain emails and videos … percolating on the Internet.”

 The warning went on… “These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag(at)whitehouse.gov”.

It continued… “The president needs our help to find those fishy emails floating around the Internet that threaten to derail the government takeover of health care. Have no fear, Patients First is on the case”! “Watch this space in upcoming days as we scour the mean streets, information superhighway and backyard conversations in hopes of catching all things “fishy.”

Not to worry Mr. President, no need to have “good American citizens” send this “fishy” article to the White House…I’ll be more then happy to exersise my first admedment right (you remember that), and email this article directely to the White House at  the above e-mail address, oh and yes…”SIEG HEIL--MY FUHRER".

Why are you as a writer willing to not verify your sources. Check Source Watch and they will tell you how.

Even the writers in the Star and other such tabloids have some truth.

Good Morning Julian,

Thank you for your response, with all due respect I suggest you take a little time and Google  Linda Douglass, the communications director for the White House’s Health Reform Office she’s the one that authored the email, and there’s a a video of her

http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/Facts-Are-Stubborn-Things/

Linda repeats some of what she emailed in the video…check it out.

However there is another video (I had an opportunity to view it) of then (I believe) citizen Obama outlining his strategy in 2003, for a single payer government control healthcare program, and he actualy said so in the video.  He then outlined a three part strategy in achiving this, to win the White House, reform healthcare as president, then slowly move away from private healthcare to a government controled system.

Oh...and my original point to the article, isn't healthcare reform, but rather having government actually intimidate its citizens and to tell on one another, if one disagrees with the government  policy...

Good men and woman have died in far away lands for those god given rights...that of FREE SPEECH! ...that's the core point of the article, not left vs right, but our basic freedoms as a free people to disagree without fear of government.

Julian,

Those two lines that you referenced (Have no fear) are not part of Linda’s email and should not have been in the article, it was simply an editing mistake and of course I do apologize for it, I should have been more careful, and again I apologize.

However, the actual email authored my Linda Douglass speaks for itself;

“These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag(at)whitehouse.gov ”.

 

The president needs our help to find those fishy emails floating around the Internet that threaten to derail the government takeover of health care.

 

Regards,

Amo

First, the Internet and emails werent' around in the early 30’s.  Second, prove it, that the White House has just issuedThird, you're just gaming us.  No such "issue"  by the White House was ever made as you falsely claim here.
